: when is ff@15 going to be reduced to 4/1?
I'd say make it 4/1 FF 15 for Plat+. People in Gold and lower many times can't tell when a game is actually lost or not. You also have many casual players in the lower leagues that just want to play regardless of the win because they enjoy it. Even those things aside, there are tons of lower league players that can do great in lane then fall apart after. Nobody actually knows the game well enough, or plays consistently enough for a 15 minute surrender in all but the absolute worst scenarios (ie 20-0). Generally by Plat though, people are just trying to climb. I'd wager the majority of people in Plat or above would rather call it a loss and go next than work towards a marginal chance of victory, especially since the odds of a team actually capitalizing on their lead and turning it into a win are significantly higher around that point.
: I havent read great reviews about Intel's new F-series processors and I would personally avoid them. Do know that the difference between an F and non-F series processor is that the F-series has had the integrated graphics portion of the processor removed. That being said, if you go forward with the F-series, then you MUST have a graphics card just to run a display. I was one of the lucky few who was able to get ahold of an RTX 2070 super during launch week. BTW, it laughs at this game because it doesnt even warm up past idle temperatures during LOL gameplay. Before that, I was using a GTX 750Ti on a 144Hz monitor. The 750Ti did fine and rarely lost any frames. So really, almost any graphics card will run league in the 100+ frames range at 1080p.

Curious where you read about the F series? From what I could find the only downsides were the initial price point, and constant GPU use without having integrated graphics.

Hard Stuck Austin123uy Son Foku Koreloxx I'm a shit tier gold player, got every one of those accounts out of Bronze/Silver (wherever they placed, I dont remember). I'd say the hardest one was Koreloxx, it placed Bronze 5, I guess from fucking around in normals with my friends. Bronze 5 was tough to maintain a 70% win rate. Lots of smurfs at the bottom, and lots of people that rage without the slightest concept into how the game works. Run it down mid is standard practice there. Got out though and cruised through silver pretty quick. You can climb out pretty easy, just pick a champ that can carry. Or as an alternative, you could uninstall and play Diablo 3. Pretty dead game, but super fun. The direction League took just doesn't do it for me anymore. Creeping on the forums hoping things will change I guess.

Would be really neat if they implemented a retroactive LP loss prevention for AFK/Inters. Like if the report is confirmed inting or AFK player for so much amount of time, they just refund you the LP lost once confirmed.

They talk so much shit on Christians yet they do what they hate most about Christians to everyone else. Shove their ideals down everyone's throat and burn them at the stake if they don't agree. California is the epitome of a failing society, littered with garbage. If that's what represents the west, then the rest of the world must be laughing their asses off at us. Between Trump and the shit that is Cali, this whole country has gone down the toilet.

An investment firm putting their hands that deep into an acquired company is unheard of, especially one the size of Tencent. ------------------ And in regards to the OP, I don't think you've ever even worked for a living. You don't seem to have a grasp on how things at a business function, unless you're just at some obscure place that runs a completely different ship then 99% of other companies. Sure managers have numbers to meet, and there is a financial gain they're looking for, but there isn't a finance department telling them what to do. If by "finance dep" you're referring to Tencent, the only thing they're telling them is they want to make X amount of money by whatever quarter. They could care less how it gets done. And to further expand on that point, you can't even put a dollar amount on much of what they do at Riot. The only things set are skin prices and the like, but aside from that; designing, balance, etc. There is no quantifiable number for these things. They pay people to handle the shit, not make a change and ask some department "how much you think that scuttle change was worth? you think thats a million dollar change, bro? felt like a million dollars, fuck im on fire!" I don't know how things work at Riot, but I'd be willing to bet there is a big picture from GC or whoever is above him. Everyone else is working towards that big picture, and its a large scale collaborative effort. I don't think anyone is calling in from the finance department telling them "Hey, buff Talon, that's a buff worth 5 bucks every time he ults. make it happen."

: What do you think about Wukong this patch?
It's almost like myself and several others made posts about this being the wrong thing to nerf, because they'd likely have to come back and nerf him again, but nobody read them or listened. No but in all seriousness, he's at a 52.5 percent win rate overall in plat+. That's about where he should be.
: Akali top is oppressive as hell. God. Grasp of the undying is a ridiculous rune on her. She can still get pushed in, and even outplayed, but it's a lot more work than it is mid. There's a lot of skill matchups here, but she is definitely much more playable top lane than mid. Stats: Her base stats are justified here. Her low armor makes it so she can actually be somewhat traded with. Her movement speed is kinda noticeable here, especially with her passive. I believe in terms of raw stats, she still gets outdone by most top laners. Passive: This, plus grasp is stupid. Extended range plus empowered auto, plus the rune triggering makes it so you can't really outtrade her, and extended trades kinda hurt, since she still is good at those. Q: This ability actually gets annoying if you're melee. She'll heal if full energy, and keep on Q'ing you when you try to cs since it's on a 1.5 second cooldown. The energy cost is high, so you'll want to trade when she's out of energy, right? Well she'll just W, gain her energy back, and Q you again, then passive auto for more energy. Level 1, she can zone you off with this ability alone. W: Hurts melees as well, since they can't auto her. If she somehow manages to get you under your turret, she'll be able to bully you there since she instantly restealths. She will take turret shots for harassing under turret though. E: Pretty easy to land when they'll be closer to you. However it's also much riskier to take since a lot of top laners like it up close. The outplays are ridiculous though. R: Pretty much the same as in mid lane Akali top feels much better than mid, which sucks because I hate top lane and would rather be mid. The main problem persists though. She can't really push to save her life. One thing I wonder is if she can be played bot lane. Her early game flaws may be helped with a support by her side.
Have you tried rushing Tiamat on her? All her abilities have sky high AD scalings, seems like it would be worth it. Especially with her poor wave clear.

Isn't this already slated to be nerfed next patch with the funneling changes? People with T1/2 jungle items that have 50% more gold than the rest of the team receive less gold from lane minions. Or I guess the better question would be, will that affect it?
koshkyra (NA)
: Everyone is taking TP because you nerfed heal for no reason, not because it's op
I dont think heal has a whole lot to do with it. Tp is just better than every other spell in a lot of scenarios. Global presence, time in lane, TP is fucking good.
: While the boob nerf is a tragedy, everything else fits so much better. Buff the amount of boob she has so it doesn't look like she had been stuffing her bra for years and it would be a purely buffed splash art.

Eh... I really just miss her longer hair across the board. I guess the shorter hair makes more sense though.
: There is no way around it. That's easily speculated without having to play against it. To think there would be just because she hasn't been released yet is denying the easily-seen reality. It's like saying there's a way to damage Tryndamere during his ultimate that we just have to figure out or a way to hit Fizz during his E. It's just one of those abilities that if used as intended -- not even particularly well, just as designed -- will have no counter to it.
Isn't she still able to take damage from AOE and non targeted abilities? For instance, {{champion:134}} could still use her non ulti abilities to damage her.
: Akali gaining tower IMMUNITY on a non-ultimate spell is a whole new level of stupid. Unbelievable.
I mean ... it's just towers. Not like they do damage anyways. Otherwise we'd all be running around with an {{item:3056}} .
: HA!!!! YES!!! ONE OF MY FAVORITE OLD CHAMPIONS IS GOING TO BE THE NEW {{champion:157}}!!! Finally I too will get to become unhittable assassin-damage cancer, despised season after season!!!! /s /maybe (Seriously though, the rework looks *really* good.

Just imagine where the pockets would normally be, but instead they are replaced with holes. It's fashion, I suppose. From a design standpoint, her new outfit in general is fine in my eyes. Personally, I have more issues with the tattoo, because Traditional Lee SIn does not give me confidence to believe that the tattoo would look remotely good on the character model especially from the in-game camera angle.
She clearly wears sweat pants special ordered from her local crossfit.
: Honestly, seeing the Akali rework makes playing immobile champs seem unfair.
This is why I play {{champion:62}} . Sometimes you need to keep those hyper mobile champs in check. Sometimes you need to just press a button and click. Sometimes you want to play whack-a-mole but you're short on quarters so you load up League instead.

Huh, Blood Moon is by far my favorite new splash. I love the artistic design on the new one, feels a bit more mature I guess you'd say? Not sure how to put my finger on it, but I do love it.

: Doublelift's Video and the Duality of Boards
What DL fails to mention about the long patching period in StarCraft were the negative effects. PvZ Swarm Host ran rampant for ages and the only answer was "dont let them get there". There was no intuitive counterplay, or brilliant ideas thought up. People just cheesed the fuck out of Zerg or all inned until Tempest received a buff. Then it landed on hour long games stalling out until the map was mined out while they slowly tried to pick 1 unit apart. That isn't to say there weren't positive effects though. Long patch cycles were also how the muta transition from Jae Dong became a thing. So it's got its perks and drawbacks I guess.
: Because apes knocking up 5 people and one shotting them with no counterplay is something riot has a hard time balancing. so yea, ape+one shot+insane cc= needs nerf he's getting to be like an assassin with cc completely agree with nerfs(i fight wukong all the time)
It wasn't a question of if he should or shouldn't be nerfed, it was a question on the direction they took with said nerf. Its the wrong one and won't stop him from one shotting people in the mid game.

He's too strong right now, but hasn't been over the years. His player base keeping him at 52% win rate amounted to a whooping like .9% (over the past years)- literally only one tricks until these meta changes.
