: Question......Why is Lee Sin in every game?
TehNACHO (NA)
: Lmao this. Udyr is one of the pinnacle examples of Champion Counterpicks into Yi or weak early game Junglers, while at the same time having virtually no mechanical depth to "Outplay" somebody.

You're trivialising... every champion has some depth. have u seen Garen a SIMPLE champ played at top level... Udyr is the same... every champ is the same.
: If u want me to buy the Mystery Mini Icon Boxes....
ALSO, for all the hype about buying Summoner Icons... The Summoner Icons on the Loading Screen can be bigger... right now they're so small... u cant tell clearly what some icons are even.

I mean... when u compare them to all the other summoners' spells... these 2 got the most impact... maybe too much impact? ... what i mean

Well, I am not judgmental of their plays... they shouldn't be so judgmental about my play. I always give a benefit of doubt to Unusual Playstyles... so much so I would watch the replay before forming an opinion. I would never judge someone in-game.
Zardo (NA)
: >Report! ... See a roaming Teemo?! Report! ... Except roaming teemo support wasn't "roaming". It was leaving their adc(a champion who cant function without help) to 1v2 all lane. Imagine playing someone like vayne against a naut draven and having to constantly deal with getting dove because your teammate wants to "play off meta".

They obviously wanted her to be more present for Worlds. This is a bad practice. Just saying. Riven was already pretty messed-up at top/mid lane. No reason for these random buffs.
: Balance team has access to so many stats but cant make sense of them
Just found out too that new Prestige skins releasing are apparently reasons particular champs needed buffs?! (Lee Sin and Riven) Wow, just wow, Riot... you mess with the already bad balance because a couple of champs are getting new skins? You're making a mistake. You're making a BIG mistake.
: Prestige Updates
So these prestige skins are the reason for the Lee Sin and Riven buffs? Oh... Riot you're making a mistake. You're making a big mistake.
: Why is malphite, a tank, better played as an AP assasin?
Because Riot failed to understand (or they understood and chose to embrace the idea) - Champs can be simply and easily divided into 2 camps in SoloQ. when u strip down the game into its most basic, ignoring complex champ synergies only pros can pull off = 1) Teamfighters good burst wombo-comboer or abilities that can change outcome of fights. 2) Good Splitpushers (Macro-disruptors) - They have good access to different points of the map. Disrupts the macro or pace of game. 3) Some champs are a combination of 1 and 2 Suddenly it becomes clear that Maphite falls into 1.
: Ok... so let me ask you this how would you for example balance the {{champion:122}} vs {{champion:86}} matchup in a way that won't affect every single other matchup of those champions? There are an incredibly small amount of changes that can be done in a vacuum. Every single change you make CAN AND WILL have consequences on so many other things. Some could be good, some could be bad, some could be disastrous. You just cannot just say "{{champion:48}} is too weak against ranged so let's just make this random change to make him better against it" without looking at how would that affect his other matchups.

Some could be good, some could be bad, some could be disastrous. You just cannot just say "{{champion:48}} is too weak against ranged so let's just make this random change to make him better against it" without looking at how would that affect his other matchups. In your example, I tried very very hard to play Garen in soloQ... for a long time. I gave up. I tend to group soloQ champs into very simple 2 camps - 1) Good Global Splitpushers (that provide great disruption to the macro game) and 2) Awesome Teamfighters (that pack wombo combo abilities or abilities that change the outcome of teamfights). Some champs are a good combination of both. I have to emphasize it is SoloQ and it does not take into account complex synergies of champs pros can pull off. We keep it simple. As such, the way I look at Garen. Some points- 1) below average kit (for the 2 soloQ camps' functions i mentioned above) 2) many bad laning matchups 3) Garyummi synergy can work well - makes him a decent botlaner 4) After laning phase, he strangely transformed into a very average Splitpusher/Macro-disruptor. honestly I would not put him into teamfights except for the cleaning up. Changes I would make to Garen - 1) Abilities might need to be reworked. To be a wombo-combo-er = he needs better teamfight burst aoe abilities other than W and spinning. To be a better splitpusher, he might need some vision abilities say a very short activated vision on the old Villian mechanics or just a slight escape ability tweak. 2) gauge the impact of new abilites on laning matchups, tweak his core stats if laning matchups are still worse than average. Core stats affect mainly SoloQ more; abilities tweaks tend to affect a wider spectrum from SoloQ to Pro-play. all i have time for. Darius is more ok compared to Garen in terms of playability. The troll has some major issues too. oh well.

You want to have an actual discussion or just want to QQ that riot isn't doing the changes you want and then hiding behind nonesense? you are right. I am trying to raise awareness of the issue. Like 99% of what this forum does. It is not hiding behind nonsense. Actual discussion? -All of us have jobs and families. It is senseless to expect thread-starters to have the time to put into detailed format a post that might or MIGHT NOT have a chance to gain enough traction to be viewed by a Rioter. Most of the threads here are mere voices in a crowd. When u get enough of them in unison, it can paint a picture of issues. We are not paid and don't hold jobs at Riot. Just some concerned, pissed-off customers who have played the game for 10yrs and seeing few progress being made.

I prefer a game that I can improvise and experiment with a lot of builds ...
