"Its no trouble at all, really. Being a traveler myself, I found learning new languages to be quite difficult, but well worth the effort." In truth, it didn't take Jhin much time at all to learn other languages. He was taught the basics after he was freed, and learned the rest himself through study and experience. He could see the blood rushing into the man's face from seeming embarrassment. It was... Odd. Normally, Jhin liked the rosy hue blush left on the skin's surface, but on Benjamin, it didn't quite fit. He tapped his left foot 4 times against the wooden floor, thinking. _Perhaps it is because I'm so used to making women blush that a man's seems so... Uninspiring._ He was pulled back from his thoughts by Benjamin's question. He spread his arms with a flourish, as if to present himself to the young man. "I am an actor, a poet, a writer... An _artist_." The word artist was spoken with great emphasis, because at the end of the day, that's all he was: An artist. Nothing else ever really mattered to him. He folded his hands back together on the table. In the kitchen, he could barely hear Siki talking to the chef. "So, Benjamin, may I ask, what _exactly_ brings you here to Ionia? Not every day a Piltovian scientist shows up, after all." Jhin had no real interest in the man's purpose in being here, only a mild curiosity. After all, he could understand why a scientist would want to come here. Ionia was a land full of curiosities. Talking dragons, sentient stone creatures, the Vastaya in general. For a non-native, especially a scientist, it must all seem so... Overwhelming. One could spend a lifetime trying to study it all, but Benjamin seemed to have his mind set on something in particular.

: In an action packed fight, things are quite tense. My vision is tunneled, and I've lost all my sense. The enemy is grouped, and their health is so low. But if only I had waited for the red light to go. It would seem I'm surrounded by a vengeful team. A murderous gleam as I land with a thud. A frightening truth says they wish for my blood. It appears in the end, my ult was a dud.
_Snap, snap, snap, snap_ aaah, let me guess, the 5 man Mantheon Leap?

I'll be with you both shortly," Siki said as she turned and walked away. Jhin's eyes followed her for a brief moment, taking the time to admire her figure. She was slim, though curvy where it counted. Her waist-length ebony hair was tied up into a bun this evening. He could see clearly on the stage of his imagination what she would become; A crimson butterfly. After he was done, his eyes returned to Benjamin. He extended his hand across the table. "Ren Hotaru. It is a pleasure to meet you, Benjamin." He said those words in clear Piltovian. His line of work required him to travel to distant lands, and learn many different languages. It took some time, but he was well versed in both Piltovian and Demacian, as well as picking up some Shuriman as well. After he and Benjamin shook hands, he folded his hands on the table. "I have a feeling you meant to say "scientist", right?" The word "scientist" was said in Ionian so that the young man could learn it. He then yawned, rubbing his eyes before returning them to their folded position.

Though he stopped looking before Ren did, a little embarrassed by his actions as_ **Keep, it, PROFESSIONAL** _He scolded himself in his own thoughts, before turning back to Ren who had his hand extended. His introduction in the Piltovian Language was by far the most relieving thing he had heard today, and would be met very warmly, if not for the correction he was given._ "Oh, well, thank you... Ren." _He responded, still in Ionian though as he would rather deal with the face blushing embarrassment that is being corrected then have to deal with being wrong all the way. Seeing the man could speak Piltovian better then Benjamin could speak Ionian he decided it would be best to explain himself in a more comfortable language, in order to avoid any more mistakes_ "I apologize for my poor speech, no doubt I butchered more then a few words, but I feel that being in a different land I shouldn't assume everyone speaks my language," **Unlike some individuals I know** "plus having multiple linguistic studies helps keep the mind flexible." _He then remembered to add, this time swapping back to Ionian_ "And, I greatly thank you for correcting my mistake, yes I am a Scientist." _He wasn't going to ask why, no doubt his attire as well as his gadgets gave it away_ "What do you do, for work?"

Will do, also an idea for his kit, perhaps his ult could fear people who are in the initial radius when he jump scares on in, with a super scary song playing to those nearby where he's going to land like how Pyke's invisible works, perhaps condescending the moment he spoops on in?

I mean blue essence comes out the ass by the time you pass level 30 and honestly if they enjoy the champion they pick they shouldn't be upset.
: I'm not sure which way this is going. Against: The item may not be S tier like before the nerfs, but it still makes you incredibly hard to push out of lane before 800 or so gold. For: The item is still decent, but since you can't efficiently stack it anymore the delay on its returns makes it hard to stomp your opponent for the first few backs (unless they don't account for the fact that you can shrug off a lot of harass).
**They Way** it's going is that the moment you buy a Dark Seal the enemy team become hard wired to focus you down if you even have a single stack. (God forbid you have 5 or more)

To sum it up, yes, you should have been banned there's no denying that. Yes, those people should be banned as well, but you're still in the same boat as them. Yes, being the better person and not typing something in chat that's as fowl as your mood is hard, but it's the right thing to do.

**They**, your team? Cry, for the savage man does not understand what he does **They**, the enemy team? Well at that point bloods been spilt so it's pretty much over then.
: that dance thing makes killing each other pretty awkward though.
I can see why, but the dance is more a respectful pre-lane gesture, you both know that one of you will have to die, but a bit of good sportsmanship goes a long way. Unless teammates are savages, then it's your job to /all RUN
Rioter Comments
: Riot intentionally gives lower gains/higher losses in diamond.
I always felt it was something of a bell curve (Not the perfect comparison to what I'm about to explain but it's the best I got) As you do better there's less and less and less competition as fewer people are in diamond then there are in Platinum or Gold. Also Diamond is one step away from Grand masters, the most prestige of ranks. I imagine then the increase in lp loss and decrease in lp gain is used in order to "thin out the herd", and place the idea that "You gotta do your best to keep up with the best". Yes, it's frustrating to win once and get almost no where and then lose twice and lose 3 level of a rank, so maybe they can dumb down the difference, but, I do believe it's presence there does make sure that only THE BEST, make it to high diamond low grand masters. Also as for trolls, you report them, yes Riot's system is not the best or fastest when dealing with them, but as long as they keep getting reported consistently they will be banned. Think of it as "My report may be the one that seals the deal." That's all I got though, I do hope a better system can be formed but for the one we got, we should learn how to work with it till we can get our better system. ~~And maybe start complaining about that too, who knows~~

: No. People hate off-meta builds. Recommended is their way to go.
mmm, I'm not going to completely disagree on the first part, but not everyone goes the "Recommended" way, some people follow pro player builds.
: I mean, I’m not an edge lord, but your title’s spot on. XD And you made this thread, so you’ve consigned yourself to the fate of hearing about some of my (slightly) off meta builds. Aftershock Sejuani Jungle with Triforce and Wit’s End. You go Cinderhulk as normal, but the attack speed lets you stack permafrost faster. Attack Speed Volibear. Triforce and Titanic Hydra as first two items, max W first for huge attack speed boosts and trading potential. Kayle Jungle going Fleet Footwork, Timewarp Tonic, and Biscuits Delivery. With E max, though your lvl 1 is weak, you’re clear isn’t bad if you kite, and you can 1v1 most jungler a once you’re lvl 3. It may not technically be off-meta, but I’ve yet to see another Kayle jungler, so yeah. ADC Swain with Press the Attack. Rush Blade of the Ruined King as your first item, max Nevermove first. It’s good up until mid game, so you have to finish the game quickly; otherwise, your booty attack scaling will be your demise. Magic Pen Mundo. The cool thing about this build is that building Sorc Boots as first item is a viable option. Your cleaver’s damage skyrockets with magic pen. I normally go Sunfire and Spirit visage as normal, then I build Morello’s, Rylai’s and Liandry’s. Most of my other “off-meta builds”, like ASAP Varus, are meta now, so that’s what I’ve got.
And so I shall respond in kind. Melee ADC {{champion:77}} with Lethal Tempo. Get {{item:3124}}, {{item:3006}}, {{item:3153}}, {{item:3046}}, (Build attack speed and crit) Max Tiger Stance; ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA!!!! {{champion:22}} with Glacial Augment, rush {{item:3022}}, Make em' go SLOOOOOOOOOW Phase Rush {{champion:14}} along with Celerity and Ghost, get you black cleaver, and run the cowards down and for the grand Finally, and oldy but a goody AP Hail of Blade {{champion:24}}. Get your {{item:3115}}, get your {{item:3091}} and your {{item:3100}}, get your Lethality on Leap Rune, and become the assassin you were meant to be. _E, Q bb, E, Q_
: "I enjoy whacky team comps and off-meta builds." Either means: * I enjoy playing new things the pros do that become meta. or * I enjoy trolling my allies by forcing them to play around my decision to screw up the team comp, and justify it by only remembering the wins.
Hey! I don't win enough to be able to forget my horrible losses...
