: No. No really, the game is stupid.
As a velkoz main I have to decide whether to ban Yasuo or Zed and pray that either my team bans them or the enemy team doesn't pick them.

: My problem is with q. It's essentially useless in team fights it takes forever because of the long ass cool down so maybe once or twice a fight I get to use it. They need to keep the minion Collision the way it is revert the cool down to what it was and let us have to manage our Mana
Not to mention in order to get the most out of it you need to get up point blank to your opponent to get off all the bolts. The payoff of his full combo just isn't as worth it as other champs.
: I absolutely hate it but I'm still trying to work with it. I like the passive change. I like that it gives you permanent health and mana. The numbers are pretty bad though. I typically get around 70ish stack in most games. Thats about 350 health and 700 in his ult. The problem is he does no damage and heals for a meh amount so it isn't enough. I loved his old q mechanic. It was unique and felt powerful when used right. The new one is so weak, generic and the cool down is super awkward. The ult is no longer gated which I like but its so lackluster. You have to be in the middle of 5 enemies to get decent healing out of it. The problem is if they all target you the healing is not enough and the bonus health is a joke. The damage is non existent and the demon flare active part is really bad. I've started building him as a pure tank at this point. His ap ratios are so bad that its pointless to try to be bursty. I havn't had much luck either but I don't want to give up on swain.
Yeah, that's my thing for the mana cost on Q it does little to no damage. I'm fine with champions having high mana costs if their abilties are OD. Swain's Q isn't and it costs too much. Either buff the damage or lower the mana cost and CD. I thought the changes would make his wave clear better and I was wrong. Also, the passive change doesn't feel to me like it's any different. I will say the only thing that feels better is the ult but it's still so lackluster in team fights. 1v1 it's ok but in a team fight you'll just get bursted to oblivion and the healing is means nothing with so much damage in the game.

His new ult has a really low damage cap and seems really lack luster for an ult, in my opinion. Right now, Swain deals 45/60/75 +21% AP per shard stored, up to 5. So max damage is 225/300/375 + 105% AP The new damage cap is 200/300/400 + 100% AP. It's 25 damage less at rank 1, 25 damage more at rank 3, and 5% AP off from the old ult, with the added benefit of being able to recast early if you need the damage quickly, a huge chunk of bonus health, and the ability to drain every target (up from 3). Plus, there's no required minigame of landing 5 Es or Ws before you actually get that damage. Any Swain ult now with less than 5 shards is objectively inferior to this new version. This version of the ult is better in almost every way. In teamfights, you can drain all five members of the enemy team for a huge amount of sustain. In 1v1s, you drain your target and the whole minion wave, so you get the full drain from one enemy and up to 70% of a full drain from the minion wave (up from 40% of a full drain). He's gaining waveclear, poke, mana sustain, infinite stacking health, and a better ult, all at the cost of a couple of seconds on a slightly wider Q. I have no idea how you think this is a bad change.

: Oh the irony. You know what champions have to commit? Simple champions. If it's a melee champion that can only chase a target then they have to commit to finishing them. Such as Volibear, Mundo, Trundle, Rammus etc. All the same champions people complain about for being "too simple" and "brain dead." Guess what, the alternative to that is a champion with a huge amount of flexibility, 2-3 escapes, and mobility. Enjoy!
I really am fine with simple I don't even have a problem with champs like Rengar. Yes he can kill with and all in but if he fucks up or you flash to dodge his ult leap you can punish him heavily for it. That's all I want for it to be fair. Pyke has good ms a hook that pulls back and slows and if he overcommits so what just stealth away. What if his pursuer has enough ms to catch up. Oh that's still ok dash away and stun them at the same time. Like what kind of bs is that. An even if by some chance you're still able to keep up by that time and ally usually has caught up to help him. I just wish when they design champions they say hey well we're giving them all this power but there needs to be a major trade off. At one point that was Zyra. She had very good damage and stroke spells BUT SHE HAD NO MOBILITY. If she used her snare and missed with the exception of her ult she was dead meat. There aren't new champions with heavy tradeoffs anymore.

: Fuck Jungle
You see what my name is right? Ganklord. It's because I used to love jungle but I can't anymore because you can't win no matter what you do. This is the season I've all but given up on jungle and I've been playing since s2. If you get one lane fed another one feeds their enemy laner too much before you can make it down there. IF YOU NEED A GANK THEN WAIT FOR IT STOP FIGHTING THE ENEMY LANER YOU NEED GANKED!

: I don't mind jungle, i just hate it when all my lanes have fed a kill before i'm even at blue yet
Right man I'm on my way to my Blue or Red after clearing one of them to get to level 3 when I hear 1st BLOOD and I'm like "Aw sh1t here we go again".
: The Pyke nerfs that are about to hit are a bit too harsh
Nah he's way too safe and also does way too much damage. Either one or the other and they decided to keep his safety in check.
: As someone who plays a fair amount of Yuumi, she should not exist
Meh not really. You kill the adc and she's dead meat. And depending on the support the minute she leaves her partner you should be targeting her. She's free gold if she leaves her laner.
: The thing that really pisses me off about zed isnt his high burst.
I don't mind his damage but he shouldn't also get good wave clear. The passive allows him to last hit easily. Shuriken should be reduced against minions.
: got my friend permabannede - he blocked me on every media - did I do the right thing?
What you had is a toxic friendship and it's a good thing you let it go.

FSRER (EUNE)
: Riot has showed us that they don't care about toplane. That could have plenty of reasons behind it (like that toplane champions do not sell many skins) but the main one I believe it is, is because in the past they had messed the numbers of the champions in those lanes so badly, that it would require time and effort to fix these and Riot, that small indie company, does not care for such "small" problems nor do they care about western phenomenons or crap like that.
I mean you're assuming just because they're a tank they have to be a top laner. No, they're also tanky mid and junlger. You can take cho and Galio mid. The latter used to be a famous mid tank. I don't think he fairs well mid now. It would be nice to have a new top laner but I just want a generally good tank.
: It was ornn. But the problem with tanks is same problem with enchanters they are limited by the idea of the class, there are only so many ways to cc or tank damage without being so good at it that other tanks are useless. Mages and bruisers have much more diversity in what they do. That's is why there is so many of them vs other classes.
Honestly Idc there aren't any really good tanks out right now. That used to be Maokai but they took that away from him. I'd like them to bring back the sucking up damage to dish it out mechanic to come back. I just want a really good tank. I don't really care if it makes it so you pick him or her over others. There are a lot of champs that you would pick over another because they do it better anyway.
: Riots champ design is incredibly dull now
The new champion looks like a S1 release
: 1. We know the next champ is probably the marksman so not anytime soon sadly

: bronze IS elo hell
Honestly play a carry support (mage support) to get out of bronze. Your adc is 8/10 dumb so when they overextend you can use their mistake to get kills and carry. I did it in flex with Zyra. Usually my adc overcommits so the duo bot hops on him then I just unload on the enemy adc and kill them. However, I'd say Velkoz is better for the carry or brand. When your in gold or plat then switch to your main role because people there have a modicum of understanding how this is a team game and you're more likely to win when you work together.
GankLord (NA)
: Riot if you're dead set on making Zyra a full support
Also Zyra's plants don't do a ton of damage. If they did then you would see her mid. If you haven't played Zyra from S3-S5 then you'll know how gutted she is. I'm not asking for a damage buff since shes a support now what I'm asking is for the plants to work as they should.
GankLord (NA)
: Riot if you're dead set on making Zyra a full support
You can literally aa Zyra's plant once and kill it because minions immediately swarm them. If you're getting hit by her plants AA it's because your stupid enough to be in range of her plants aa when there are no minions around to target. How is asking for her plants to do what every other pet/turret does make her interactive? If your in aa range of her plants why shouldn't it target you? It's common sense.
: New Players
I think Riot should bring ribbons back to indicate new players that being said that isn't a patch for bad behavior. Probably the worst season to start LoL toxicity is at an all-time high. I would also recommend staying away from jungle for now unless you're into BDSM. I probably should be more "Were not all like that" but honestly it's too much. The best piece of advice I can give you is that the minute someone starts with you mute them.
: Nobody wants Jg.
As a jungle main I don't like Jungle anymore. I feel like even if I get one lane fed the other lanes complain I'm not ganking enough or now I can't even reach lv 3 without the first blood going to the enemy team. It also annoys me when a lane gives first blood and then they die 2 more times to their laner and want me to gank. I'm not going to put my life on the line when you've demonstrated to me that your lane is a lost cause. If you're 0/3 within 5 minutes and it's not due to ganks I can't trust you to finish off the enemy. I may die as a result and the situation just gets worst.

It's always 1 lane getting absolutely obliterated while the rest tries to do damage control. It's never something like "Oh we can stabilize this game" Nope, it's always a one sided thrashing in this season.
This ^ an also I'm a jungle main and in the games I have played this season it doesn't matter how fed I get a lane because either one of 2 things happens. I get a lane fed but my other two just get obliterated and the enemy team has the sense to rally behind their fed laners. 2 I get a lane fed but they aren't actually a skilled player and were only able to capitalize off my ganks. I have rarely had a game that within 5 minutes we're down 3-4 deaths. I legit can't hit lv 3 before I hear first blood on the enemy side and I immediately get depressed.
: Promos...
I've given up on climbing seriously this season I hit gold last year for the first time and it wasn't so hard of a climb but this season's matchmaking is ridiculous. I just play flexed now.
