: Champion Q&A: Tahm Kench, the River King
Given the precedence of allowing champions to grab and interact with buff monsters, (blitz, syndra, nunu, thresh etc.) and giving champions added effects for using buff monsters (syndra, nunu) what led to the decision to not allow Tahm to devour buff monsters? Not only is this the only instance of an ability that works on champions and minions that does not work on buffs, but it feels like it is heavily weighted to intentionally drive him out of the jungle. This appears to go entirely opposite to the declared theme of season 5 being "diversity".

: Well, he isn't exactly wrong. You stand by the ghost or ignore the W clone, and you get punished for it. Though the W could use a tad more clarity.
: I just see an egotistical Ekko fan.
I see someone with no interest in serious discussions that differ from their own opinion. If you disagree with a post, give your opinion on the actual subject or downvote. Leave your attitude and non-constructive comments to yourself.
: logged in to downvote. No she cant
Repost blocks tower shots and her ult makes her untargetable. That's two skills that say she can.
: how are u still trolling this hard u literally just booty blased some kids and got ur first penta ever and some how ur conclusion is "nah im just super skilled XDDDDDDDD" 2/10 get skill on some real champ
Hey. Go back and read the part where I specifically stated it wasn't that much personal skill. Reading comprehension: Get you some. Edit: I just checked your profile, and all you do is shitpost people to be an asshole. Ignoring you now.
: It looks telegraphed to the ekko player, but the stun circle is only visible to the enemy in the last .5 seconds
That is a fair point. The second time echo playing baseball does at least give you a heads up that it is coming though.

Outside of that, his other ratios are comparable to Fizz and Le'Blanc, and lower than Zed. His ratios are not ridiculous. Whatever helps you sleep at night. It's not like he can kill people in seconds at a low level or anything.
You mean his execute damage? You mean that thing that has been around forever? That thing that Fizz has? That thing that assassins are supposed to do? The ONE job they have?

: I'm not a fan of his pool party skin, something about it doesn't sit right with me. I love all the rest of the pool party skins so I have no idea why.
That skin is HILARIOUS! "TASTE SALVATION!" "This poor champion is drowning in creep! I BETTER SAVE THEM!" "Oh, I am going to save the SHIT out of you!"
: Just a question to solve this.
Actually yes. If you have your mouse settings set up so there is a trail following your mouse around all the time it causes this. It should be in the standard windows mouse settings, turn it off and you should be good for a go round. Happy hunting!

No, but the {{champion:106}} still smells it and the {{champion:268}} still sees it. :P
: {{champion:83}} What about Yorick's ult? That could actually end up using the ult after Ekko dies.
WAIT. If enemy Yorick has enemy Ekko ulted, and Allied Morde ults enemy Ekko, when enemy Ekko dies are there four echos of Ekko? **WHEN DOES THE ECHO STOP?**

If a joke needs to be explained it isn't funny. T_T But seriously, there is an old-timey saying is that whoever brings in the most money in a household is the bread winner. The joke is continuing your statement of his cooking being amazing and pantheon's joke about wanting to be a baker. Just some light hearted word play.
: {{champion:99}} doesn't count for nothin' these days {{item:3070}}
: {{champion:89}} {{champion:80}} It just seems to work for some reason. Plus, Pantheon's cooking is probably amazing.
I guess you could say, that he is the bread winner. http://i1.wp.com/iloveepoetry.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/GIF-Deal-With-It-starcraft-video-games-GIF.gif

Jinx and MF are in the upper left mingling with the rest of the crowd. Then if you look just to the right of his lead glove you'll see a gent in a disheveled brown suit with an expression of shock on his face. In between his legs you can see twitch's tail and part of his suit coat. I have circled all three of them in the attached splash art for you.

: If you wanna see more art by this artist, (who you might already know) I'm pretty sure judging from the hands and face that it was drawn by [Artgerm ](http://artgerm.deviantart.com/gallery/)(Stan Lau). :) He did the LeBlanc splash too. Really love how his style blends with League! (Maybe someone from Riot can confirm?)
I will definitely dig into that, thank you! :)

You know, I was going to retort, but by definition you are correct. It is a political party, not a crime. That being said, you know damn well the intentions behind the original statement, and the fact that out of everything THIS is what you chose to bring up, and the manner in which you brought it up, means that you are only here looking for fights. So while you are right, about the nazi statement, everything else in your comment is so depressingly lowbrow and pointless that it makes you come off as nothing more than an angry little kid looking for something to pick on. Go get a drink, or laid, and quit being a dick on the Internet just to be a dick. I hope the rest of your day goes better, because something else has clearly shoved a stick up your ass.
