: Well, people are stupidly building AD on her when she doesn't have the budget for it, so she's going to look weak as support. Solo lane she's not amazing. Very situational and damage isn't huge. Her passive growth has a much higher impact as a support. The only way her solo laning would be good is if her ratios are broken, in which case they'll probably get nerfed.

Very situational and damage isn't huge. Her passive growth has a much higher impact as a support. The only way her solo laning would be good is if her ratios are broken, in which case they'll probably get nerfed. So I played one game as Senna in the support role. I did build AD, but my runes were shield/ heal oriented. I did act like a support (healing/ harassing with Q, warding, using my Stun to engage or save my allies, using E to protect teammates when they were caught out, and ulting to snipe a target off of my allies or to shield my allies who were in a bad position. Although I did not intentionally try to take kills it happened 11/4/22 was my KDA I believe with an S rating following the match. I’m saying this because I don’t agree with the claim that a support needs to building in a specific way to be effective. Supports are impactful mostly based on the utility they bring to a match or how they fit in a specific comp (Support MF vs Zyra is an example). Scaling supports especially have more freedom to build in diverse ways. I play Bard A LOT. I don’t build Bard like 99.9 of all Bard players. I build him full tank, with Zzrot portal as core item on him. I start and max W (his heal) first. Why? because I’m aware my collecting chimes makes my basics passively stronger with additional effects. Going tank with zzrot allows me to impact the map in many ways and to fulfill the theme of The Wandering Caretaker. All this to say, let supports be flexible! Sure, I might have been a carry in my match with Senna, despite not trying (which is why I guess her secondary role is marksman). My team didn’t complain about the KS. We destroyed the Nexus and at the end of the day that is all that matters. :)

: Let's say you run a business. You have 10 people who really like product A while 2 or 3 heavily prefer product B. Do you focus on product A or B? If people want more skins for these other champions, they have to get others to play and buy skins for said champions, that is just basic business.

Or you create a bomb-ass skin for an underplayed champ which attracts new players to the champ. Example: I never really played Lux, but then Elementalist Lux came out and I played her and bought the skin.
: HELP ME!!! (Rioter pls).
I had something similar happen to me last night. I got stuck on a loading screen twice at 100 percent. I tried force quitting and everything but the loading screen just stayed there. I even tried restarting my computer and the loading screen was STILL THERE!!! ThIs is definitely something Riot needs to look into. I have a high end gaming PC so this isn’t on my end. I won’t be playing until they fix this problem.

We all know Riot favors Pro-play since they refuse to fix stuff immediately because it would effect their precise Pro meta and Worlds. It just takes us all stopping this habit together to fix it. I'm sure we can all agree. The game just is not fun anymore.

I'm just saying we all complain about what's wrong with the game, but we do not take actual action. If we want Riot to fix this game we must assert our power. WE are the ones who support them. We are their customers. If we hurt their profit margins and increase their queue times on a massive united scale, we AS A COMMUNITY can finally get them to fix their game.

I am not dumping on the game. I am just stating we are aware that the game is in a poor state, yet if we don't take actual action it won't change. Complaining does nothing, but hurting their wallets and increasing their queue times with less players logged will force Riot to address the issues we have all been dealing with.

I’m sorry, but I didn’t read your post fully. Riot is addressing the issue with adcs being weak in the next couple of patches
: Don't make Bard's Ultimate effect like Zhonya's/Stopwatch in every skins.
The reason his ult has stuck with the zhonya effect is because it has to be have clarity that it is a Bard ultimate that makes all in the ring invulnerable for that time. If different skins had ults that reflected the theme (like roots for elderwood Bard ult) it could confuse a lot of players. Some allies might think it is a Zyra ult, for instance, which would cause allies to blow their spells on the enemy which would be bad
: Suspended for saying Taric Armor of the Fifth Age look gay
Yeah just don’t use that word. It’s SUPER offensive. Also, why does it matter if a skin makes a character look LGBT. There is no reason to comment on it. Just play the game.

Your argument is flawed. If all your lanes are losing, you can’t blame irelia for that. You don’t deserve to win if all your lanes are losing. It just means the enemy is better.

I have one many games as a tank comp (without warmogs) in ARAM. You just have to build the right tank items first to prevent the enemies from scaling to mid game (ie sunfire cap/ abyssal mask, adaptive helm/ need treads (against AP) or bramble vest, ninja tabis, randuins omen (against AD).

: It's no more complex than many of the other toggled abilities on many other champions. I do not believe it's overloaded, though your opinion is noted. I do believe Kindred needs a bigger focus on hunting marked targets. As for wolf's visual, that doesn't do much more than to clutter the screen and bring attention to the distinct imbalance between Lamb & Wolf.

I do not believe it's overloaded, though your opinion is noted. I do believe Kindred needs a bigger focus on hunting marked targets. As for wolf's visual, that doesn't do much more than to clutter the screen and bring attention to the distinct imbalance between Lamb & Wolf. When I say overloaded I mean it has too many strengths. It would destroy any class. The reason Kindred is seen as mostly Lamb is because that is the model plays physically control. It would be cool if Kindred has a different ult that would allow lamb and wolf to switch positions and have different abilities (similiar to Elise and nidalee), but wolf would probably be too similiar to Warwick.
: Kindred Wolf changes
That W would be too overloaded. I think all that needs to be done is make wolf’s visual model bigger.
: Irelia needs to be nerfed finally
The thing with irelia is you have to shut her down early and constantly keep her down by never letting her free farm after landing phase. Kled does fairly well against irelia if you know what you are doing.
