: Can we please talk about Kai'sa
I got tired of complaining. Everybody defends her
: Is the client getting buggier
Curiously, only NA client is buggy for me. Lan client works perfectly fine.
: We should get an update on the two gay guys living in Varus' head
Varus' half assed new lore was just a wink for the LGTB community. That is why he didn't get an updated model or voicelines which he needs. We are probably not getting anything for him but Lux'll probably get another visual update and another voice line updated before him.
xALESIAx (EUW)
: Am I the only one that thinks Akali is weak right now?
Every high elo player wants to pick her for a reason. She isn't weak, you just need to be good at the game to win with her.
: New Yuumi: Early game feels TERRIBLE
What do you expect? How can Riot make that champion good without her being the best support? This is what happens when Riot adds power budget to new champions. All her powerbudget goes to her W so she can't be strong everywhere else if she is untargetable for the most part. It is Riot's fault in the end for not knowing how to design a champion.
darkdill (NA)
: Okay Riot, you made your Invoker equivalent. What's next, Bloodseeker's Rupture?
Idk but Aphelios is way more complicated than Invoker imo
: I don't mind when adcs are strong, but Caitlyn has too much self peel.
If she couldnstop critting me for half my HP it would be fun.
AhernfVy (NA)
: Too many champions have the counterplay of "just don't be that champion vs them" now
Riot doesn't balance around game health anymore and it shows.
: All supports should be like Senna/Thresh.
And every marksman should be like kaisa right?
Tentaku (EUNE)
: I don't mind Trynda when he is a rare sight, but when his playrate raises he needs to be dealt with
Tryn needs to be gutted and left to rot until he gets reworked. But since balance team doesnt care about game health we have to deal with him and wait until mid season for Riot to deal with him. Meanwhile if Amumu is "OP" he is nerfed next patch

: Considering lucians winrate and supposed difficulty after they just nerfed ryze and akali, he should be nerfed. But he wont be. look at miss fortune and ashes winrate and pick percents, and no nerfs for then. Riot has made it clear marksmen are allowed to be busted.

: What do you all think about Crit Lucian this season? Do you think that it/he will get nerfed?
: Can Heimerdinger be looked at?
Back when the balance team cared about game health Heimer would've been gutted but i'm pretty sure some of the balance team members abuse him and that's why he hasn"t seen a nerf in over a year of being an autowin in bot lane.

Ask riot support. Thats how it fixed for me.

That is your opinion. IMO there's everything wrong with it because that is precisely the reason why All-in Supports are OP.
: How we went to "i lose,mb i did some mistakes" to "i lose, look at my mates 0/10 !"
{{champion:111}} Can pretty much solo your ADC during the laning phase, imagine what happens when he and his ADC are ahead? Literally impossible to survive him. The game has too much damage, everything can 100-0 you with 1 item when you fall behind that is why avoiding deaths is pretty much impossible unless you stay at base.

: If Varus had the old lore written only in better version then the human would be Varus and darkin could have double A name. What a shame that he doesn't have double A name... I really wonder why I got downvoted for stating that darkins were more interesting as otherworldly creatures than fallen Egyptian sublevel gods. With them as aliens we get more diversity, we can expect more and greater things than from something that was made to fit the plot of runeterra. This way, as darkins are now, they got their lore potential gutted. We wont get otherworldly kingdom with its army, nor whats going on in otherworldly realm nor fraction specialized against otherworldly darkins nor anything else related to otherworldly realm... You may argue: "But we got ascended." But they could be there even without darkins.

: Hello Varus hello... is there anybody in there?
Varus is a second class citizen in this game, just like many other champions he simply doesn't matter. Only thing that matters for Riot is their band skins.
: With the other games I play getting like no skins, no events, no map changes, no cosmetics, nothing............I feel like League is the game I'm the MOST happy with. I know I've only been playing a year and don't know how events used to be, but at least with this game we've had new skinlines and/or events every month.......where other games I play go months with literally nothing and it's so boring on those games. I genuinely don't understand why people are so miserable with League with all the stuff we've gotten this year. Maybe it's because Idk how it used to be........anyways, here's to a wave of downvotes -_-

Its not that their events are bad, thats not the issue. Is that they take forever to address issues about game state.
: "Play X Champ" is not counterplay
A dumb argument used by dumb people.
: Riot is doing nothing for league.
I swear the only thing they work on is on skins for Lux, Ahri and Akali and random number buff-nerfs. We've been complaining about the same shit for like 3 seasons now and Riot still doesn't do anything.

Yeah thats why i said "old garbage" riven is popular so they dont care about fixing an unintended feature on her.
Sirsir (NA)
: The Ryze Problem
Ryze's problem is that he doesn't have a powerbudget. If he has a playmaking ultimate then his kit shouldnt be compensated for not having a damaging ultimate. Nowdays powerbudget only exists for old garbage champions and that is why balance sucks.
: Can riot just do an obvious change to champions to make them viable instead of reworks?
Because that takes work OP. Balance team only knows how to shift numbers around and call it "balance"
Naalith (NA)

Change for the sake of change. That is the logic behind Riot's decisions.

: Why is Jax the way his is?
He is a walking ball of stats that Riot keeps relevant for whatever reason.
Jacksin (OCE)
: Varus' story as a human wasn't even changed that much
His lore feels too half assed too me now. Old lore was generic but it had a certain appeal. It also had a league judgement which was kinda cool. But this new lore... first it got retconned making his comics pretty much irrelevant and his personality non-existent. Also his model and voice lines have yet to be updated which adds more to how half-assed his lore is.
: Yeah, they mean nothing, because they were never SUPPOSED to.

If they are not supposed to mean anything how do we even balance this game then? How do we create champion diversity if in the end there's not a design philosophy to aid developers? Qiyana having more utility and CC than most champions despite being an "assassin" who has no business initiating teamfights or locking up multiple targets. Kai'sa being an "marksman/Assassin" with abilities that scale harder than champions like Varus intended to be "Marksman/Artillery" Some champions only for of weakness and counterplay is supposed to be their high cooldowns. Yet nowdays most classes are allowed to reach 40% CDR without sacrificing any stats for it. Of course that if champions classes truly mean nothing then i guess its safe to say that the only guideline Riot uses to balance their game is their own personal bias and favoritism towards certain champions which is even more problematic. Of course i'm not claiming that champion classes should be followed blindly and in 100% of the cases, it is necessary to deviate from it from time to time otherwise every champion design becomes stale but to simply ignore it?

: My favourite example of this completely braindead and just plain wrong classing system is that Mundo, the tankiest character is the game, is not a tank... I get that Riot want to be different, but the fact that both their classing system goes against EVERY other game AND the fact that they don't even obey their own class guidelines show that in this case they are just talking out of their asses....

Well his itemization is full tank but his playstyle is a juggernaut (His job isn't to lock down targets or protect his team through CC but rather to run at the enemy team and be a nuisance while he tries to take someone down. Other juggernauts can't build full tank, usually they build 3-4 damage items and then tank. > [{quoted}](name=Sucction,realm=OCE,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=ExAFtxIv,comment-id=000b,timestamp=2019-12-02T13:11:02.124+0000) > > It's more what they're *meant* to be than what they currently are. > > Vlad isn't meant to be a burst mage, but because damage is so high, drain-tanking doesn't really work anymore, and so he's balanced around a full AP build, much like Viktor with his supposed DoT spells. > > I agree with the first one though, none of those champions have "high-end" burst damage. They have burst for sure, but it's nothing like a full annie or fizz combo, which is what I'd consider to be high-end. Then their priority should be keeping identity alive. Damage being so high its just a symptom IMO. Of course that by making everyone have the damage their class supposedly isn't meant to have you force them to abandon other parts of their play-style that are necessary in keeping diversity and the health of the game. About the burst thing; The fact that they don't burst as hard as Annie or Fizz is irrelevant IMO. As long as they have enough burst to kill squishy champions before they can react its enough. Riven can 100-0 most squishies with 2 items and she doesn't even build lethality. Even Yi's damage is so frontloaded that he only needs 1 item to be a threat.
: As a 600k Soraka main the very existence of Senna is just a slap in the face
Senna needs to be gutted. That champion is a slap to the face of everything
Rioter Comments
: At this point roles dont even feel relevant.
Because Riot just allows everything do damage and build a bunch of CDR Vlad runs around 100-0 everything in one rotation all while doing a lot of AOE damage and being a bitch to kill. Balance does not exists in this game, the balance team needs to be replaced entirely for people that actually understand how a MOBA should be balanced.
: The real problem with Senna ADC is her SUPPORTS.
She just has too much in her kit. She has the ability to sustain, can follow up with her root, Senna's root is pretty much a death sentence in lane, which gives her a lot of agency that honestly she shouldn't have. The only way to deal with senna is gutting her, her can't be balanced, as usual with Riot.
: Senna NEEDS to be given a HARSH choice. DAMAGE or UTILITY.
Meaningful gameplay choices are only for old champions.
TheGrot (NA)
: Riot Should Remove JG Autofill
Jungle needs to be changed honestly. It is the only role that a team can't carry if it plays badly. Your ADC, Top, Mid Supp can feed and the game is still winnable but your jungler feeds/plays badly/falls behind? GG he is just useless after that . This is why games feel like a coin flip.
