: Riot finally did it. They finally said FUCK YOU to all their players.
~~"all their players."~~ players that care about solo queue being gone. FTFY. Just because a lot of people whine about something doesn't mean everyone is upset about it or even that the majority cares. I'm not exactly saying that this is the case here but please don't speak for me, okay? Riot has shown that they are working to eliminate the negative aspects of the changes they are making. This one change mostly only affects higher ELO (not me) so IDGAF really. They have made it pretty clear they are moving things in the direction they want. It is their game. Be appreciative that you have the chance to give them input and feedback. Maybe someday people around here can learn to do those two things without coming across like a 13 year old goon.
: This post is mostly towards people who pick Yasuo and Zed as last pick. However, if you instalock Yasuo or Zed before anyone else on your team picks anything, you really cant be upset about them not molding to you as you picked something with little to no utility that is very prone to being feast or famine, especially Yasuo who does poorly more than 50% of the time.
I guess I was viewing it from pick intent not pick order.
: what!! do you even know what his w and r do. wtf are you even talking about and your the person calling for nerfs onto this champion such a joke. Thank you for the easy proof how you people are just making mindless bullshit up and trying to post. To note to you his w doesn't gap close you seem to have no clue to what xin even does and makes me see that you don't even play the game at all. If you do actually play the game you are probably only 1 champion and are extremely bad at the game to begin with.
I suppose I meant R and E. Thanks for your barbaric response asshole. Do you just talk like this to people because you assume they are wanting a nerf against a champ you like?

But I guess with support, I get leeway for that? I mean I usually play someone like Braum, Tahm Kench or Lulu (buying her next) but are those solid picks in order to climb? Or should I go for a support which can carry themselves, even with a bad ADC? Best support in the game is Janna. If you want to climb, play Janna. Tbh the idea that you need to pick a "support to carry themselves, even with a bad adc" is stupid. You're really not that much better than the players your playing with. You're not going to go 6 hat Annie sup and solo carry a team of feeders with your superior mechoniks and game knowledge. Focus on winning the close games by improving your play in scenarios where you misplay and improving your judgement around bad scenarios you notice that you're putting yourself/team in. Just forget about the games where your whole team feeds. You weren't going to carry it, get over it. Focus on contributing as best you can.
I disagree with this. I HATE supporting in low elo because I am basically flipping a coin as to whether or not my lane will win. I can TRY my best to keep my ADC alive but not if he WANTS TO DIE. So I play Vel'Koz support and when my ADC dies I just get a double kill and start snowballing. If I have an ADC worth anything I can still get him kills and CC enemies for him.
: PSA: If youre mid lane and your entire team is nothing but AD and tanks...
Or you could pick Yasuo or Zed and have someone else on your team take the burden of Ability Power.
: WHY DID YOU BUFF XIN
I wonder if they should swap his R and W or if that would make him too much like {{champion:19}} That way he can't close gaps without his ult up.

I like it. There are two ways I can see people abusing this: - Bottom of B5: No LP loss for leaving. - Parties just take turns taking the whole loss of LP. Here are the solutions: - Make it possible to go negative with LP *only* as a result of this feature. - Attach a leaverbuster to the entire party if the leaver was in a group. Maybe like 5 minutes the first time and then longer if they keep doing it.

: "Also, buy pink wards. This tip has little to do with Rengar, it's just good habits." From 6.2 notes
They should rework wards so each base ward has the ability to upgrade to two advanced wards instead of one. Right now we have Yellow > Blue and Red > Mobile Red. {{item:3340}} - Choice #1 : Bring back the old upgrade but keep it free of course. More wards with a better cooldown. This would be your sightstone clone for permanent coverage in key areas. - Choice #2 : Bring back the pink ward upgrade. *This* time in order to prevent completely nullifying stealth champs for free they should have it on a long cooldown, perhaps even starting the cooldown upon the destruction of your pink ward and taking up to 3 minutes to be able to place another one. Countering a stealth champ should be a well-thought out decision that you pay for if you mess up. Not something you do every single team fight because of pink ward spam. {{item:3363}} - Choice #1 : The blue trinket should be a base trinket again except this time you have to upgrade it to be able to spam it as much as currently. That would be choice #1. This would let you somewhat blanket the map like currently. - Choice#2 : The blue trinket is now basically the same as the yellow trinket without upgrades except with massive range. The benefits here are range and stealth compared to the standard yellow trinket. This would be the anti-objective trinket when you aren't sure if they are really at dragon or baron. {{item:3341}} - Choice #1 : The current mobile sweeper is a nice upgrade and they should just keep it and add Choice #2. - Choice #2: While the red trinket doesn't exactly need love, I think it would add to diversity and to the way you can help your team if you had sort of a long-range scanner trinket. Think of how the blue trinket works except it only temporarily reveals the area but it also reveals and disables all wards and traps in the radius. Your jungle wants to gank top and you are facing Teemo? He can sweep the area to find a clear path to Satan. Your allies are about to walk into a Shaco box and don't know it? Reveal it for them. This is just my two cents. I feel like each individual trinket above has a situational and effective use that allows for full build champions to still place pinks but also benefits your team more if they think out their warding and trinket upgrades.
: Not a Shen rework-hating thread. Open healthy discussion here
His E+Q+W combo makes him a stupid strong support. Leap out of a bush, taunt, ignore all of the enemies attacks, and deal stupid damage to the ADC while your ADC does the same. I haven't tried him in other roles yet. He is really really fun as a support though.

: It would give premades more power. It's whatever you want to ban I can ban galio if I want should I probably not. In old draft people would say I want to play op champ and they would still ban it because it's the smart thing to do.
I'm sure Riot could put in measures to prevent abuse of this system, such as what I mentioned in my original post.
: Riot addressed the issue of banning pick peoples pick intent. The reason you can bans peoples pick intent. The last pick could choose jax or mundo. Then you can't ban them and the other team could pick them. If you and the same person want the same champ choose a different champ for your pick intent then pick the one you actually want to play.
That is why I say for bans that make sense (unlike when my team decides to ban Shen because they wanted to play him and I have first pick) they can still opt to ban whatever champion they want but it would require a team majority vote.

: How would him summoning ghouls work is the thing? That is the reason why Yorick is literally a nonexistant champion. I am just curious how Vlad can use the same thing but not be pure cancer like Yorick which just simply survives til he has some mana regen then just hides in a corner and uses ghouls til the end of time? And this being on a champ that uses no mana and has infinite sustain.
He would summon 1 ghoul at ranks 1 and 2, 2 ghouls at ranks 3 and 4, and 3 ghouls at rank 5. He would also summon 1 ghoul when killing a champion or epic jungle monster. Ghouls would just stay in proximity until any enemy came in range, then they would attack and continue attacking until no enemies were in range then they would just sit still or slowly make their way back to Vlad. They would simply prioritize the closest enemy and be about as powerful as a siege minion. Their whole schtick would be that they siphon life for their master. I would imagine it would be balanced if they expired after a set amount of time or distance like the voidlings from the Zz'Rot Portal. I imagine HP and/or AP scaling for the healing per attack. It would introduce a sort of minigame to combat with Vlad where to cut off his healing it would benefit you to eliminate his ghouls. I think it would give him a neat necromantic feel of being a lord of the undead.

: Wont happen, its one thing to rework him, another to entirely recreate the champion. The point being is he is ranged and self sustain is his core. That will remain no matter what they do with him. But other than that your suggestion for Q and W are basically what he has already. Your E is a big problem. Making it just summon Ghouls will make it no different than Yorick and the sole reason he is dead. Its noninteractive at all. Like people complain Vlad is noninteractive. Giving him an ability to farm not even at range would just be boring even for the Vlad. Ult is the best part about him since the sole point of it is its meant to be a teamfighting godly ult. They all take more damage with it up. Also. "Make him be melee with insane sustain" Aka Aatrox- check. "Give him Kalista hop as passive" check. "Give him a dash like Fiora" check. "Give him Vlad version of Mega Gnar but toggle it at will like Karma" check. I dont mean to come off as an ass so I apologize if I do but that just seems pretty shoddy to make a suggestion when it isn't even creative. Literally over half your post was just take x from x champ and add it here with no differences.
I like Vlad's Q and W, but his E is just another 'let me splash more blood around' ability. He is one of my least favorite champions because I find his abilities to be stale and boring, especially his E. If he has to be a blood mage and nothing more I don't see a way around it though. I figured giving him and E where he summons ghouls would fit a slightly more flavorful vampiric theme. They could even siphon health for him and interact with his abilities somehow. Anything besides splashing more blood, please. I'm sorry if you felt as though I wasn't being creative. I wasn't merely copy-pasting abilities from other champions. I thought of how I felt he would be improved and tried to explain it by comparing it to champions with similar mechanics. With so many champions in the game already it would be almost impossible to create a new ability that isn't comparable in some way to another ability.
: But he's isn't a vampire. He's a "Hemomancer," or a blood-mage. He is only put off as being a vampire due to his powers revolving around blood. And why bats? I get why, but at the same time he's not what you depict him as. the pool makes sense, & fits his lore.
I personally find his blood mage theme boring and one dimensional. Since vampires are essentially blood mages with more depth I felt like it would be a change that would actually motivate me to play Vlad.

: Some thoughts on Vladimir rework
Vlad should play like a vampire from Warhammer and less like a Blood Mage IMO. He should be a melee champion with insane spell vamp, lifesteal, and attack speed (think Aatrox). He should have high base movement speed and have a melee version of what Kalista does, basic attack -> dash. (Replace his old passive with this) He should play more like Fiora but build around evasion and sustain instead of high burst and CC defense. His Q should remain somewhat the same but with better animations. It should also mark or curse the enemy in some way, perhaps even pulling Vladimir towards them and slowing them. His W should turn him into a cloud of bats instead of a pool of blood but otherwise function the same. Tides of Blood should be completely replaced with an ability that summons bloody ghouls in front of Vladimir that march forwards and attack enemies (prioritizing champions > aggro'd monsters > minions) similar to the Zz'rot Portal voidlings but with a slightly shorter range and far tankier. His ultimate should be similar to Karma's ult where his abilities would be enhanced except Vlad's stats etc. would also change (so also sort of like Gnar). He would turn into a large bat beast with more HP but less attack speed. He would also gain higher damage, lifesteal, spell vamp, armor, and MR.

: No. If you were Silver 5, and win all 10 games, you might get Silver 5 or bronze 1. Because currently, all the high elo players are grabbing the gold spots, and the system makes it so you can't be place with MMR higher than you. EDIT: If you want to avoid being shoved down bronze, wait a couple of weeks before doing provisionals, so the high elo players can go fetch their spot on the top of the food chain.
Thanks for the information. I think I'll try to win 9 placement matches and then give it about a month of practicing before the 10th haha.

: Kinda missing the point. Also, you apparently...really don't know Ghost Rider. The chains are part of his arsenal. His real gimmicks are the motorcycle and penance stare. You're trying to stretch the chain concept so it makes sense...which really doesn't end up working. Even if that was the case, we're comparing something in-universe. You could theoretically replace Illaoi with a totem-swinging shaman but that's kind of what Illaoi is already. It works with her kit, it works with who she is, the particles add to it rather than make the kit. I disagree with the Jhin assumption but we already have an entire post about that. And as for "Oh the in-game will change it"...no. It won't. At least not for me. Jhin should have sold me the moment I saw his abilities. I should have instantly got a feel for his virtuoso attitude and the beauty of his kit. Instead I was given a handful of flower petals and a Kalashnikov and told that it's art. I won't speak for everyone because hey maybe they'll find some beauty in his kit (Which I think is cool, even if it doesn't fit Jhin) but for me they lost that battle the moment I looked at his abilities.

It doesn't matter what Ghost Rider's main abilities are. My point is that the graphic detail of champions are a major part of their theme. Arguing that if you replace the graphics and ability effects of a champion with the result of a new champion being bad champion design is flawed and ignorant. > > Also, you apparently...really don't know Ghost Rider.

You criticized well-designed champions such as Bard and praised Illaoi which is hypocritical. Your original post is weak and nonsensical. Blatant favoritism at best. > > I disagree with the Jhin assumption but we already have an entire post about that. > > And as for "Oh the in-game will change it"...no. It won't. At least not for me.

I won't speak for everyone because hey maybe they'll find some beauty in his kit (Which I think is cool, even if it doesn't fit Jhin) but for me they lost that battle the moment I looked at his abilities. I'm still wondering what people were expecting. He was teased as an artistic gunman. He is an artistic gunman. He uses guns and similar devices with artsy-fartsy spell effects to set up elaborate kills. I'm not sure people would be happier if he had a sniper that exploded trees out of peoples faces or what. Maybe he needs a musical gun or something. I think Riot balanced these ideas just right and avoided making a sinister serial killer into a cheeseball AD viktor/xerath.
: Jhin, as a champion, is a thematic failure. (LONG POST)
So basically if a champion can be replaced with another champion concept albeit with different visuals then they are an example of bad character design? Replace Illaoi with Ghost Rider. Smashes his chains in front of himself for the Q, shoulder charges the enemy with his W, rips out his enemies soul with E, and creates a hellfire AOE with mad chain swinging skills with his ult. Take this concept and add tentacles = Illaoi. She must be a bad champion concept according to your own logic. Jhin to me is a good example of how a kit should define a champion. He is an artist who has to use his abilities in combination to set up elaborate kills. That is a kit that makes sense according to his champion design. His particle effects and so forth merely emphasize his artistic nature. Just because he throws grenades, sets traps, and uses a gun doesn't mean he should be replaced by a commando or whatever. I think a lot of the naysayers are going to have their opinions fade into obscurity once Jhin sees action in-game.
: Meanwhile At Riot HQ
It is a 4 attack passive, not a 4 hit passive. Xin, Diana, Master Yi, and Caitlyn have these. He is the 5th one as far as I can tell.
: Rito: The next champ doesn't have any sort of 3-hit passive. *gives him a 4-hit passive*
Technically its a 4 attack passive, like Yi has.
: Just wanna thank the mid laners for ruining a support item again
I agree with this. It is lame that they are removing the gold-gain feature upon killing a minion _again_. They should just make it so that if you kill a minion when there are no allies nearby _then_ the gold-gain feature is disabled temporarily.
