: A new champion without insane mobility? Wack.
Yep and anyone calling him overloaded simply didn't read the kit.
: Cool, when do we get a simple champion?
Next champion which is a juggernaut.
Omnisia (NA)
: **WE HAVE BEEN BEGGING FOR THE WEIRD CHAMP GIMMICKS TO STOP WTF IS THIS**
There are just as many people who love gimmick champions as there are people who dislike them.
: I thought we learned a valuable lesson in overloading kits with Aatrox, Irelia, and Akali but it seems it went in one ear and out the other. Why is is passive a (no joke) actual novel?
It's not overloaded though, it would be overloaded if he could actively switch between all weapons, but he has to stick with only have 2 weapons at a time. This is a champion that will take time to get used to, and macro a lot, hell his only damaging abilities are q and r, he isn't mobile, has no dashes, has no stuns. He only has a slow on ONE weapon.
Miriam (NA)
: Is it just me or does this cute twink legit got everything in his kit (just split up into weapons)? Is this a CertainlyT champ? Because he looks like he's in the category of his champs where hes gonna be fun to play but a nightmare to deal with because this is just way too much.
There isn't that much, he is limited to two weapons at a time so he will always have two abilities at once, his only damaging skill is his q and ult, his w simply switches between off hand and main hand, and he has no E
Mishli (NA)
: I do have a suggestion, if he doesn't have a proper E ability, maybe holding E could show you the current order of all your weapons, just so players that have trouble memorizing the order can plan out what's coming next?
There is already a symbol that shows the next weapon up when your main hand runs out of ammo.
: Prediction- Lowest win rate on launch, but after a bit of time pro play will be so busted with him it will become a unique model minion for non pro players. Next years Akali/Irelia.
Yea, I honestly can't wait to see what high skilled players can do with him. I don't think low skilled players will be that good with him, since there is so much to keep track of.
: Same with new Mordekaiser, no? He's pretty simple and straightforward as well
Hell the new juggernaut is supposed to be simple like garen and darius as well.
MLGMASTA (NA)
: just you wait until the next champion; which will be played in first person lol
I think the next champion is supposed to be a basic juggernaut like garen and darius.
: One, the whole "you deserve to lose" argument is bs. If you take 4 drakes and then enemy team snags a single elder ever you quite possibly lose, because new elder buff hard counters certain champions, such as Kindred, Vlad, Olaf, Warwick, Aatrox, etc. If you have the misfortune to be playing any sort of "below x percent hp" champion it doesn't matter how far ahead you are, elder buff will cuck you.
Don't see how it counters warwick or olaf. Kindred actually survives executes using her ulti. Anyways, you people are most likely the same ones who complain when games go on too long, but then complain when riot introduces something to end games quicker.
Mirai Ko (NA)
: Hey. . .hey! What are you doing!? Don't point out how the positives drastically out weigh the negatives, and how this leaves us better off with freedom of build diversity. Start complaining about the new thing like everyone else! Change = Bad. You know the drill. Talk about the positives and you'll get our new toys taken away. Don't be that guy.

Like people complaining about elder, but if people actually contested objectives like their supposed to, Elder would be far into late game anyways. Normal dragons actually feel like they mean something now.
: Elder execute is NO FUN FOR ANYBODY
It's called prioritize objectives instead of going HERP DERP LETS JUST IGNORE DRAGON. If the teams are contesting dragon, elder will be far into late game, if your team is just letting dragons get taken(Top generally being the one generally not to blame since their so far away ) Then you deserve to lose. Learn to go for objectives, instead of just going for kills, your games might actually end better.
Riprox (NA)
: You should try opting out of chat as well. I just did last week, as a jungle main I was tired of my team trying to tell me what to do and tilting me over it by calling me moron for not helping the losing lane. Turns out I have 70% WR in my last 30 games! And communication is still great with pings!

Didn't they explicitly say that jungle XP was getting increased, as you can now hit lvl 3 off of buff wolves gromp? They did say that. Go to https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/gameplay/preseason-2020-gameplay-rise-elements and control + F "We're also slightly decreasing jungle XP."
This is what it says "Jungle Path Diversity Early jungling currently revolves around Krugs due to their high gold/XP tuning, resulting in pretty one-dimensional pathing and a heavy blue-side advantage due to bot lane's proximity to Krugs. We're making XP and gold changes in order to open up more diverse pathing options and jungle strategies—most significantly, reducing Krugs' value and buffing Gromp's so junglers can hit level 3 off any combination of outer camp (Gromp or Krugs), buff camp, and any third camp. We’ve also added respawn timer icons (like you see on red and blue buff) to the minimap for every camp to help all junglers plan their next moves." It's not a nerf, their balancing it out more.
Jaspers (EUW)
: In the Rune Reforged stream ages ago, Meddler that 'Reap' a ditched rune wasn't good for gameplay as it meant that at 15% HP the next auto by a champ would kill you. So instead of treating your HP as 15% left, treat it as your new Zero. So they didn't add it as it wasn't good for gameplay. What happened? {{champion:6}} {{champion:555}} This...
I mean, there have been plenty of ults that just execute champions though. Chogath is a giant ass monster of execution.
: Did you bother to listen to what they said? They're taking away "hidden" power from the drake buffs and giving the execute which players can predict and react accordingly.
This also means that people who obtained more drakes don't get a better advantage of getting elder.
: Think of it this way... the elder buff now gives true damage. So it's doing more damage to you over the course of the teamfight... making it more oppressive. I mean... it's more or less similar, but I can see why the idea of an execute seems kind of odd.
It loses the bonus stats it gave. It just does a burn and execute now. The thing is, there are lots of times where elder is just wasted cause people just seem to be afraid to fight with it. And honestly by the time elder is in play, the game should be over anyways, it's more of an ending buff.
: Yeah... No adc love or tank love. ADC almost doesn't exist in most games already. (garen yummi, insert mage tank combo here).
Nah man, it's all about that crit garen darius bot lane.
: oh boy, more jungle XP nerfs without decreasing camp respawn time, because that doesn't *literally encourage a permagank camp meta that nobody likes*
It's not really a nerf, more just a balance, Krugs lose some xp, but gromp gains more. If you go blue gromp wolves, you are most likely going to hit level 3 now.

So no, the "Matchmaking" of LoL is the worst.
People buy accounts and get boosted all the time, that has nothing to do with match making.
: Why waste 20-XX min in a game you have very low chance of winning ? How can it be a good experience to yet have another AFK on your team for the 50th time this season ? You are trapped in a game for the 50th time you can't get out of. I can tell you what i got better at when i have AFKs n TROLLS in my games and that is very simple to just accept the loss early, press ALT+F4, and logon my secondary account. Its just not worth the time, i can't control my team in any way, but i can control whether I'm on it or not.
Why waste time playing the game in general if you aren't even going to try to fucking win regardless of the situation.

O.o It's not that bad, it's an angel using a robotic body as a host, so it makes sense.
: what on earth is this riot? can i have a clear explanation?
Their premades obviously, but because those low levels are paring with a high level, those low levels match making is going to get fucked. This is along the line of high skilled friends teaching friends or new players how to play.
: So its the players fault, that someone DC'ed ? Can you explain how exactly ? You know just as well as i do, that in those 4v5 games you loose 99% of the times, personally i'll rather just give up some LP or XP and get going in another game, than having a bad experience.
Bad experiences are only bad experiences when you yourself make them bad experiences. You literally don't get better at stuff by giving up, you get better through actually trying.

: The Riot Games Balance team does not care about you or your feedback.
I mean, patches get focused towards proplay around LCS time all the time. It's not something new.
: https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/save-twisted-treeline-2
You do know petitions hardly ever do anything right.
: unfortunately, riot won't care. TT has a playerbase in the hundreds of thousands or even millions, but it's not a worthwhile "investment" to them, despite having never done anything for the mode in the first place even if all 900 viewers here played it, they'd still get rid of it, just like Dominion
Buddy, they reworked the mode to try and bring players to play it, but it didn't do jack shit so they just stopped.

: I am all for if ANY ONE DCs the rest of the game, or a certain amount of time, then the rest of the team does not lose LP. And you can keep duos from abusing this by excluding the other duo if 1 of the 2 DCs.
Do you not know how abusable that is? You don't even need a fucking duo to abuse it.
: I never really understood the Riot attitude "Lets keep players hostages in a game they don't want to be in, and if they leave lets punish them hard". The surrender vote should be enabled after 5min, and if 4 people vote yes, end the damn game, how frekking had can it be ???? Being in a game with AFK'ers feeders etc etc is not a fun experience. And ya it sucks that a billion company can't code a /remake option that actually works, who in the right mind cares if the player who DC'ed tries to connect 300 million times ? If he or she is not in game by 3min mark, then give the team the option to remake.
Riot is not at fault here, it's the defeatist attitude that the community has. They see one mishap and go GG WE LOSE SURRENDER PLEASE, instead of actually trying to win, 4v5's are no excuse since you can win those by ACTUALLY TRYING.
: Pyke surviving isn't the problem here. It's his stupid ass heal that allows every moron to just missplay 23/7 and regenerate most of it by going out of sight.
Garen, mundo. :| Garen just has to go out of combat, and mundo can literally live in the ranks of the enemy with his R
: Does ignite not give truesight ? (In which would stop the healing from starting in the first place, since Pyke only heals when he is unseen..)
It doesn't give truesight, it doesn't show invisible targets, just people in the fog of war.
: I believe the new standards for champions getting Legendary skins should be among the following: * Must not be a recently released champion (Sylas, Qiyana, Neeko, Yuumi). * Must be a champion that's been in the roster for at least 3 years. * Must have at least 4 skins. * If the champion's reworked, it must wait for approximately a year to get one. If they already have a Legendary skin, then they're qualified for one but still have to wait (Galio, Nunu & Willump, and Kayle). * Must not be a champion that already has a Legendary skin; exceptions are champions that have more than one Legendary (Legacy) skins back in the early days of LoL (Annie, Cho'Gath, Corki, Twisted Fate, Dr. Mundo, Olaf, and Kog'Maw). Fiddlesticks and Draven are still qualified for a Legendary because those are made for the fans.
: Why was Ahri needed there in this cinematic ? I mean, why to steal the spotlight at the end? It would have been perfectly fine if she'd would have looked at the star and felt the rocks glow or whatever... But why break a wall to look all glorious when Neeko carried the fight? Worst of all, the girl is litteraly at her feet, with Xayah and Rakan in the back, but she takes the time to look at the rocks like 'HEY PEOPLE, REMEMBER THEM FROM PREVIOUS VIDEO ??! Fooooreshadowing'. Flawless except the ending. Think there could have been a much better use of the character of Ahri without forcing her as the hero at the end.
You seem very salty about ahri coming to the rescue of one of her previous teammates.
: If just balance team was as good as art team
Balance team is fine, most of the shit towards the balance team comes off as people just not wanting to look at their own mistakes and instead decides to blame the game and the people behind it.
: Riot has a problem with continuity
I mean, retcon's are bound to happen when they are literally doing so much work to go back update and change almost everyone's lore to fit what they want to do.
Kai Guy (NA)
: I am so tiered of the give up if 1 lane fails. Why the hell do some of yall think games are far to snowbally and then turn around to willingly make 1 behind teammate into 2 behind teammates because you checked out mentally. God awfull logic. Oh 1 player on my team is not superiors to their peer? Better give up its GG snowball meta. If one needs all 4 teammates to win their roles for them to have a hope of a win? You know... I think we have a term for that its called getting carried. Funny.... Players who have to be carried.... last I checked aren't they usually the deadweight on a team?
Exactly, people just simply give up once one teammate is doing bad. And the ones who give up are the ones who become dead weight.
: I have a ragequitter every other game in RANKED. Unfortunately, Riot no longer cares. No one gets punished, so people get to afk as much as they like after feeding a couple of times.
It's probably because people hardly report these days and only accept what happens. Which is an affect the defeatist attitude.
GigglesO (NA)
: I'd argue you can't really build back into the game against something like the Irelia that is 2-0 with 50cs. stun dash r dash dash dash auto dash auto auto dead. <--- .5s too.
But you can, you play safe and just farm. It really isn't that hard. The community is simply plagued by a thick fog of the defeatist attitude.

Ever. because papa rito dont care nor do they punish enough.
It's called reporting without being toxic.
Escalan (EUW)
: There are no punishments for being afk, so people don't care. It's the same when they intentionally feed or troll. If you just don't type you are free to do whatever you want.
Enough reports will get the person viewed by an actual human being instead of a bot.
Diävolo (EUW)
: I mean, the game is actually decided from the first kills. I do the same because if I don't get the first kill against the laner I lost. So yeah You may say "your team can carry". I say idgaf, this game isn't a team game anymore, just pick an OP champ and go in
It really isn't though, you can easily win even when behind, it's called turtling and farming. The reason people see it that is is because of a defeatist attitude that plagues the community at the moment. You literally get more gold by farming then killing during lane phase.
vyoda (NA)
: Support Mains of the Boards: Why do you supp? ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ
Despite what people say, supports are so very important.
: Sure there's skill. There's skill in most things that involve luck. The one tactic that always gets me the win is respositioning my characters. Still, I'd like to have certain items with certain team comps, that just don't appear because of the dreaded luck of the draw.
Auto chess is just not the kind of game mode where you can plan before starting a game. It's a type of game where you have to adapt and plan on the fly as the game goes.
Barkley (NA)
: wish this weren't as true as it is. I skyrocketed to platinum with little to no trouble at all. Figured all the people complaining about luck were just trash. Then I actually got to my real MMR and shit started actually getting competitive. And I started losing games to shit like someone getting 4 3-star champs when everyone else got none. Someone getting 2-3 items every creep round while others got none. And I realized the bitter truth. Once you've reached your actual skill cap as a straight-up "play your cards" player, there is no such thing as climbing. There's no such thing as "improve your game, improve your rank." At a certain point -- it really does just become about luck.
I mean it does take mental skills to plan on the fly. But luck is just a constant thing in auto chess in general.
: That's literally the only difference. The skill level of people hardly change, besides the obvious immaturity.
BS, the skill level does change a lot. You are being blind if you think it doesn't change. Why do you think the majority of players exist in iron-silver in ranking and not evenly spread apart?
: I see absolutely no reason why a stat can't be visible. They dont even have to rank people based on the mmr...but they are still using the same calculator, and the numbers are in the system somewhere, all i want to do is look at the thing. Whats so terrible about that?
It can lead to more anxiety, and the already defeatist attitude in the community could get worse, say, your stat is 1500, you look up one of your opponents and he is 100 above you, that is literally unneeded anxiety towards the match. Mmr does not need to be visible, if anything is should stay hidden while this shitty defeatist attitude that plagues the community exists in such a thick fog.
