: As a Shyvana main, I am actually happy that Devourer is gone because it might mean Top Lane Shyvana can once again be balanced without making Jungle Shyvana stupid strong. I think overall this will be better for the health of the champion and allow her to have more diversity/interactivity within her play.

You think they would buff Shyvana to that high of a point to counterbalance the item nerfs so she is viable top? I like her a lot but I think she needs a lot of help to fight the Trundle's, Shen's and Maokai's in top lane.

: ...Aside from the fact that you are wasting 1350 gold while you are buying magic resistance vs a champion who does physical damage. This allows him to buy more damage against you since you are practically a non-effective tank vs him for the first ~8 minutes, meanwhile you have no damage compared to a B.F. Sword or other large AD item.

Sword or other large AD item. You don't rush it and the fact that you referred to building a item that counters a champ's ult completely as a waste lets me know you do not know what you are talking about. Take exhaust, or build qss or build zhonyas or counter him with kayle lissandra cho gath. Those are 4 ways to really ruin Zed. Also your support can pick people like Kench and then Zed can't teamfight

: LF serious people for ranked 5's silver +
Role: Mid, can also adc Rank: Plat 5 IGN: Crazy for Jinx Strengths: winning lane and transferring that into teamfights, also usually have low deaths. I specialize on 4 champions Kat Zed Yasuo Jinx and just spam those. Weaknesses: There are a few champions like Diana, Fizz I struggle against, bad at control mages so I usually don't play them Am not really a shotcalled, Usually take a break when I feel myself tilting or going on a lose streak.

Vi Zed Jax and Leblanc all are pretty mobile and good right now. Leblanc has a decent amount in common with Ahri so she would be an easier transition

I think the biggest problem lately is the massive power creep. Every new champ like kindred kench and ekko are miles better then old champions leaving you literally 0 reason to play old champions. And then you have to ban them every patch until riot finally nerfs them like they did with Garen and Darius. Meanwhile champions like Yorick or Galio I will go years without seeing them in game and Riot doesn't even have the decency to give them a small buff.
: Same boat, i'm one of the last of my group still hoping league improves. I really enjoy many aspects of it, and want it to return to its former glory.

: I hear ya. People are dumb. But I'm honestly glad that games are stompy in those situations, in particular. I mean, if it's 4v5, I'd rather it be over quickly. I have sometimes waited 30 mins with an afk for them to show up and try to play at that point. You almost never win that, but it ends up dragging on for 40-50 mins simply because your team had more exp with the afk. It isn't like that anymore, and I think that's generally a good thing.

If it is a 4v5 yes if not and it is just one team getting stomped which most of my games have been those are a lot less fun then a close 30-40 minute game.

I guess I should've qualified a good assassin player. Both can easily dodge lux's q and without that she has no hope of landing anything else. Also rushing Zhonyas is really bad right now because of the multiple nerfs it got a few patches back. They raised the price and lowered the stats on it but aside from those 2 and yasuo Lux does win most lanes.

I've seen some people in Bronze matched with Challenger, kind of see where I'm going with this? Yeah I do the main problems is there just are not many diamonds playing normals to find games with 10 diamond players (because honestly why would you play normals if you are diamond you are usually just beating the crap out of silvers/golds) so I think that is why we see so many lopsided or poorly matched normals games.

Teemo or Nidalee in team fights, both are garbage if they are behind and do no damage, Nidalee is probably worse since you have to hit skill shots.
