: why is spear of shojin allowed to exist
I thought the Spear was a worse version of the previous ER? Or did I miss something?
: Rakan
Didn't they change it so that he can't E or W for 0.5 sec after activating hir R?
: Patch 9.8 Notes
Wasn't Riven doing fine without a 5% increased dmg?

: What's going on with flashing and using abilities at the same time?
Doesn't work with Blitz"s Q. It does work with Leona's E or Alistar's Q and certainly many others.
: You cannot move attack or cast an ability when she pulls herself to you, that is very much a stun.
Pretty sure you can cast spells, like morgana's shield. The thing is that you usually get stunned by her Q right after. Or maybe I'm just biased :)
: When you know a gameplay post about your main is right, but you don't want them to be nerfed
How come your memes are always spot on? I've been coming to the boards just hoping to see a new thread from the Laughing fish...
: the same reason why everyones apparently ok with {{champion:89}} having 3 stuns in her kit. ill never understand why thats allowed.

She's always maintained a pretty high pickrate because she's one of those 'gotta get that montage' champions, and it's not like she's that visually/thematically unappealing like monster or Yorick champions. The lowest in pickrate she's ever dropped was 10%, and that's still more than most champions have. Yeah, she's a tank shredder, but she's also a duelist in general due to the nature of her kit. Isn't it time the Moderators start dealing with threads like this? There's 10+ threads of the same shit every day.
You're damn right, you've posted the same thing in less than 5 mins. It's past time they do their job.

African as in Tunis, Cape Town, Nairobi, Windhoek or Cairo? I wonder. Please stop seeing Africa as a country/nation. Thanks
: Oh yeah, my bad, I thought it was already sorted and only had a quick look.
I thought so too lol the link indicates that it is sorted but somehow when you click it, the order gets back to default.
: He is 48 in that list lol and has a negative winrate. Anyway he meant that Yasuo, by his player base, is played mostly on mid and not top. Of course he will be played top too because he has a big ass player base. Picking him top is a death sentence though
He's 48 because it's sorted by alphabetical order. Sort by play rate and he's 18. Sort by win rate and he's 38 (pretty low, sure, but still higher than Fiora, Renekton, Aatrox, Urgot, Gnar, Irelia...).

Don't even need to look at those links, if you don't think ezreal isn't the best ADC in the game right now you are bad.
Sounds like what a flat Earther would say. Just saying.
: Renekton is really unfun to play against
Unfun to play against, as karma? I mean she gets destroyed easy but you have the means to do something. And he was already using Essence Reaver ( a better version of current's Shojin except that you don't have to waste money on mana now) so nothing new. If anything, what made him stronger is the new Conqueror , not the spear. Also, you're saying he's not falling off anymore but if the ally Vayne didn't go 0/12/1 in your game, it would have been a different story.
: Yasuo’s weakness is literally any melee duelist where his dashes hardly help him escape and his windwall is pointless. There’s a reason why he rarely plays top except by die hard Yasuo fans, who’d play him support if they weren’t gonna get flamed
He is often played top tho... [https://champion.gg/statistics/#?roleSort=Top&sortBy=general.playPercent&order=descend](https://champion.gg/statistics/#?roleSort=Top&sortBy=general.playPercent&order=descend) More than Malphite, tryndamere, allaoi, Sion, Kled, olaf... and about 30 other champs lol Reaching this position while being the most banned champ doesn't match the "rarely plays top" kinda champ that you're describing.
: A way to buff Kayle early game without overpowering her
Meanwhile, {{champion:98}} needs 2 points in his Q to farm casters under turret (or hit once, wait for a turret shot, and hit once more but that's if your own minions are not fucking you up). Joke aside, she's pretty disgusting in lane even if she's behind. She'll come back no matter what so why should she have easier access to gold? It would just make her more powerful earlier IMO.

: what about Renekton he is king of top lane again.
: I just read that you can actually be penalized for trading positions too "frequently"
"that everybody seems to hate" on the boards* i personally like this new system, even tho it's got some flaws that need to be addressed. They don't want to penalize people for doing others a favor. They want to penalize people who consistently trade to get their main role in lower elo games on off positions so that they can get freelo. I got that message when I traded with someone because he got autofill and he didn't play support at all and I thought it's weird but I guess you'd need to be doing this like all the time to be "penalized". I have no idea what is considered often or consistently by Riot so I'm just speculating of course. Just like everybody else lol
: Promos -- Autofill -- Dodge -- Loss
If you're autofill, a loss wouldn't count as a loss for your promos on your main role or whatever role you were in promos for. Are you saying that you dodged an autofilled game and it counted as a loss during your promos? I'm confused

: Support item changes delay the quest finish and hurt warding
Stop saying support item and just mention Spellthief plz. There is no issue with the other two. Spellthief penalizes you if you last hit minions. Otherwise it just works like Relic shield.

Hence no solo lane gold gen. my apologies i did adress this in my edit. not all supports can wave clear, if your ADC keeps out of range or afk's or is griefing. your not gonna have a good time.
If nobody is around... just farm like everybody else. What's the big deal? The penalty on Spellthief? Maybe if they reduced it to like 8 seconds per minion killed... other than that I don't see any problem with the changes.
: Wtf? Support items? Just wow.
Except for Spellthief, the other two items are fine IMO. They just need to remove the penalty when killing minions and we're good.

Isn't plat the new gold tho? lol Just kidding. The thing is, if they're in your team, that means they are just as likely to be in the enemy team. IMO, this thread is just another "I only get feeders in my team and the enemy team never has them" complaint, but most likely, the OP was just in a bad form and will recover soon enough. And will he complain when he faces "feeders" in the enemy team? I don't think so. Also, Because of this new ranking system being tested since, what, 3 weeks ago (?), it may take more time than usual to stabilize MMR (purely hypothetical, I know). EArly season has always been a mess, it will just last longer than usual.
: will there be another PVE this year?
Pretty sure they said there would be at least one or two PVE events this year. I don't remember the video but if you go on Nexus you should find it.
: Just make his first Q an auto reset and I think we're good!
That'd be enough :)
: How to keep CS when roaming??
Some tips I've learned from RTO: Before roaming, shove your lane in. If you play top, after shoving your lane, look to steal camps from enemy jungler. If your jungler is on the other side of the map and the golems are up, u can take them too. Later in the game, if you're pushing your lane try to always push canon waves all the way in. The wave will slowly grow as it pushes back to you. Come back some time later to harvest the juicy wave (but don't forget about it). While it's being pushed back to you, you have time to get some kills/assists here and there, a camp or two, etc.
: Please buff Shen
I'd rather they buff his CSing tbh.

Are you for real? looool You could at least do your research. The border displays your current rank. Get gold and you'll get your gold border. I got mine back.

It does hurt supports, a lot. Your ADC died? Fuck you, you can't make gold unless you kill minions. But wait, fuck you again because Spellthief actively punishes you for killing minions! Your ADC need back and buy or heal? Fuck you, because you'll only get mana coins with Ancient Coin. No more protecting the lane and getting your gold coins while you wait for the ally to return. It already takes about 18-20 minutes to complete the Sightstone - that will now INCREASE if you now have to factor in your lane partner's need to back or if they happen to die. And god forbid it gets to late game - you'll no longer get your coins for clearing lanes that are underpushed, and you'll no longer get your tributes if you poke away enemies who popped up while you're warding the dragon or baron. Overall, it's a massive fuck you to supports by forcing their gold income to be directly tied to their laner. Bonus fuck you to supports because you can burn tribute stacks on Spellthief and get nothing if no ally is near!
All you wrote there was already happening with Relic Shield users. You can't make gold out of the item if you have no one around. From now on, all supports will be put on the same level IMO. > Your ADC died? Fuck you, you can't make gold unless you kill minions. But wait, fuck you again because Spellthief actively punishes you for killing minions! Your ADC need back and buy or heal? Fuck you, because you'll only get mana coins with Ancient Coin. No more protecting the lane and getting your gold coins while you wait for the ally to return. If your ADC died, how would you make money with old Spellthief? Would you actually stay alone in lane and try to poke your enemy to get some coins? I'd rather try and shove/freeze the lane, last hit. If you have ancient coin and you're waiting on your adc you can just last hit and get gold so I don't see the problem here... you'd want to have both minion gold and ancient coin gold at the same time? Btw you already have twice the gold per sec with Ancient coin and Spellthief's Edge compared to Relic Shield (which you can't benefit from if nobody else is around). And unless you're really behind you complete your quest after 11-12 mins EZ.
: I was in my promos to plat 2
How are feeders related to the new ranking system tho?
: Why the support item hot fix isn't bad
I'm just glad some of these trolls are out of Top Lane. It was hurting their teams in low elo.

I don't mind losing lp.
Rioter Comments
: Ranked 2019 — /dev Update #1
Is it just me or it feels like we're just getting less LP when we win? I was on a 70-80% win rate and I was getting 17 LP. I lost and they took 20 LP from me oO. I feel like last season, if you were winning a lot then you would start earning more LP for each win until you lose too many games. Feels a bit underwhelming tbh.
: Ranked 2019 — /dev Update #1
If you are in your promos for your main role and you're much lower on your other roles, can you queue for a lower role to be matched with lower elo players, ask for your main role and get an easy promo win? Or does it not work like that?
: Woah woah woah, I'm fine with the removal of true stealth under turrets. I thought it was fine but whatever as long as she gets damage comps so we can actually dive someone like most assassins I'm fine with this change. But if you remove her healing she won't be a champion mid anymore. I do no wanna go back to the days of only csing with Q and losing most of my wave to any non melee match up. On a side note I kinda don't like the direction riots taking recently of just sudden removal of unique features of kits. I feel like that should be more of a last result after trying to adjust champions in other ways. Characters unique features of part of what people fall in love with so removing them feels pretty bad.
> I do no wanna go back to the days of only csing with Q and losing most of my wave to any non melee match up. Are you talking about Shen?

They said they'd roll out the Role ranking after Split 1. So it should happen somewhere around April. Hope this helps.

: A System that reminds players at the 30 second mark in Champ Select to change Runes and Masteries.
What about choosing your runes at the beginning of the game? A bit like in Smite where you choose one of your two "artifacts" or whatever it's called at the beginning, and then you get the other one later on. It's the equivalent of summoner's spells but I don't see why it couldn't work for runes.
: About the Jax nerds on pbe
: I'm curious as to what kind of effect the new positional ranking will have on overall skill.
I'm wondering if high level players will actually have some of their roles in lower divisions or if it will somewhat be equivalent for any position because of their game knowledge.
