: Wtf is this Renekton buff
I'm sorry riot gave us a way to fight Tahm Kench without gutting Tahm Kench?
: Why is there a freelo build that's easy to access?
I think red buff + hurricane on an ADC would be helpful against this comp. Also running the "Void" bonus is a must (Autos negate 50% armor).
: equal footing start, remove catch up bonus (lose to win)
I like the RNG because each game is unique. If things were too controlled, I feel like everyone would just make Shoujins all game and spam pyke, kennen, akali.

: Oh you mean the lose streak "strategy" where you spend the entirety of the game killing yourself before blowing all your pity gold hoping for lucky rolls? Wow such an intuitive and skillful strategy!
Health is a resource, you can spend it at your own digression. Hyper-reroll is a valid strategy shown to produce results. Winning at 1 health or 100 health counts the same, no one cares if its pity gold if it puts you ahead. Your welcome to try to get the early lead and hold it, but saying that "losing streak" strategy doesn't work is arrogant. Having 50~60 gold to reroll one turn and create a cohesive comp vs. 10 - 20 gold makes a huge difference. Every turn up until late game the champion pool becomes thinner and thinner, and on top of that your chances to get lower tier characters is reduced. So yeah, maximizing "pity gold" so you you can get "Lucky Rolls" is beneficial. On top of that you can pick any item/champion if your lower.

: Not sure how anyone can find this mode fun, it's RNG to an extreme
I strongly appreciate the RNG in the game. RNG makes each game unique, and provides a lot more satisfaction when your dream comp comes into fruition. Also saying the entire game hinges on RNG is incorrect. Their are valid strategies which can be utilizes to gain an advantage without relying solely on unit drops and itemization. Resource Management, Re-rolling, and placement play a large role as the game progresses. Their are also risk/reward factors which can also be taken into account. If items were entirely guaranteed drops the games would become boring. For the longevity of TFT the RNG is a necessary factor.
: Items!
They did fix there shit, its being released next patch.
: They should buff the 3-yordle bonus and nerf the 6-yordle bonus, like the difference between a 20% and 60% chance is so fucking massive. Make it 25/50 instead of 20/60, it would make it feel better to “build” and less annoying to fight.
This is also a pretty solid way to handle the issue.

They only dodge auto attacks, not abilities. You can very much beat them with AOE spells or equipping a adc with Rapid Fire Cannon. its really easy to fully aquire. there are no legendary yordle units. the rarest unit is gnar, which you should at least be able to get a 1 star in most games.
You need to be both level 6 and also gather 6 Yordles. Trist - Common Lulu - Uncommon Poppy - Rare Veigar - Rare Kennen - Rare Gnar - Epic On top of that, if these units aren't upgraded they have very low health pools. Also their is chance involved. Its not a 100% chance to dodge, its 65%. Its also only dodging auto's not abilities. You have comps which can beat it. Here are two single champions you can pick up and power up to counter this comp. Chogath + Thornmail + Dragons Talon + Warmogs. Garen + (with same build as above)
: Rewards For Doing Badly > Rewards For Doing Well
I strongly disagree with your conclusion. This is a strategy game at its core, and their are observable trade-offs. In Team Fight Tactics Health is a Resource, just like gold. As strategies become more complex, manipulating your position for drafting will become a key factor to success. A valid strategy to win late game is minimizing HP loss, and consistently lose rounds to be close to the higher priority picks while having high gold income. The risk to this strategy is not being able to make your comp come into fruition before your HP is too critically low. Every strategy has a caveat.

OOF my guy. I guess you've not run into 4 brawlers with 3 lockets. Its some quality stuff.
: why the fuck is there going to be ranked when the whole shit is rng that's so fucking unfair. Hope this shit mode gets replaced with nexus blitz. Such a pointless mode, don't get xp dont get mastery points and not able to even control the champs.
It poor design. It's like having a ranked ladder for the lottery.

: Need Advice Winning Promos
Let me give you some strategy tips. 1.) At the end of the day make sure you are playing your best. Practice your mechanics before entering your promos. Play your best role to the best of your ability. You directly influence your prospects of winning 100% percent of the time. You are the only constant in a pool of variables. Make sure you dont become a hindrance to your success. 2.) Talk less, play more. It is not worth acknowledging allied members mistakes, or pointing them out. It is solo queue, its a waste of time. Reducing your teams moral or making allies defensive will only cost you late game. 3.) Hit the enemy where they are weak. Your goal is to drive a wedge into the enemy teams teamwork and moral. Killing the jungler repeatedly: prevents enemy ganks to your lane. Killing the bot laner: prevents them from participating in team fights. Killing the support: prevents bot lane from coordinating. Killing top laner: will aggro enemy junglers attention. Contesting enemy team buffs successfully: throws off the jungler. The moment you see that all chat message, "so & so is feeding report him" is when you know you can start grouping up and just look to close the game out. Where skill doesnt work, play the mind game to win. 4.) Memorize basic strategies. If you just had a successful gank to a lane and the enemy teleports back, and your allied laner is still relatively healthy, just dive the enemy again. If someone doesnt have a summoner, keep fighting. Use your wards actively, and dont be afraid to leave lane or counter jungle. 5.) Pick meta champions when you think you've reached a peak for your mechanical skills for the time being.
: Aery vs Dark Harvest on Teemo?
Do you have consistent damage or do you want to pop someone?
: So if ezreal keeps abusing items, why do people keep wanting the items nerfed instead of ezreal
I think those are intended items. I mean Ezreal wears a flipping gauntlet and the item is literally called Iceborn Gauntlet. Plus its kind of his core due to how his abilities scale.
: New Big Brain strat, 1000% never done before, OP, Nerf Please riot
I understand your frustration. It can be hard to play with a player who isn't communicating, and attempting a unique strategy. However, I dont think it warrants as much attention as its getting. It's 1 game in on your record of X games. Based on a players skill level, one game will not make or break their MMR. Sure it is a set back, but you can easily win the next game to equalize it. Also off-meta is something that paves way to new style and interesting gameplay. Mages weren't always played as support, or even as botlane carry, but people are playing it. The biggest difference between me playing something off-meta is that I dont have the credibility that a professional or high ranked player does. Take for example pyke and yuumi bot lane, I'm sure most people would think I'm trolling if I picked that combination before professional players started to abuse the strategy.
: JG Morde is broken
I'm okay with him anywhere considering I've been beating him as Wukong.
: What do you mean? Veigar *IS* truly malicious and entirely competent!
In the long run who would win the battle for the title of supreme evil overlord? Mordekaiser or Veigar?
: I wouldn't say it's bug, **but it's definitely something Riot should look into**. Zilean's kit hasn't changed all that much over the years & it's kinda starting to show it's age. Perhaps giving him a point in his [W: Rewind] at Level 1 (Similar to how Yuumi has her W at Level 1) would be a nice QoL change for him for the time being.
Id rather he just be barred from putting a point in W at lvl 1. Otherwise we'd be seeing zilean double bomb stun at lvl 1, and that is not fun to play against.

: Um... the other player was streaming too.... It's not like this was a Norms match on a smurf account where he stomped on some average Joe. This was a fellow Master rank player clearly griefing. And the fact you can now submit a report ticket via Riot Support helps immensely with the speed of punishments. Nevermind the fact it was a repeat offense over several dozen games. You wanna report him for flaming, go right ahead. But Nightblue is not in the wrong for reporting someone else who was breaking the rules.

But Nightblue is not in the wrong for reporting someone else who was breaking the rules. His actions were not going through the proper channels. Its an abuse of authority.** If you could just call up a police and have someone imprisoned without going through the judicial process its called tyranny.** Nightblue3 is, furthermore, a hypocrite who actively engages in toxic behavior himself and has somehow managed to avoid adequete level of punishment for his own behavior.

: To iron player, his grab look really quick. I am not exaggerating.
I personally haven't had a problem with Morde, I think he is fair. I think he presents a good opportunity for players to learn to kite and sidestep.
: What would stop them for buying it too.
Buying it would set you back. 5% Base health shield is rather low compared to items which provide much better stats. Solo Laners can't actively proc the spoils of war to increase the shield capacity. It would be a dead item for a majority of the laning phase, and its potential drops after laning phase. It's tailored to be ideal for supporting. Less Spoils of War Stacks Active = Bigger Shield. You need to have another laner nearby to use Spoils of War. Shield is based off Base Health rather then Max health so most non-tank champions wont see much use. Pyke maybe the exception.

: what does this have to do with irelia being broken in ranked vs pro play? I don't think shes broken tbh but everyone is entitled to his opinion
I believe I've laid it out clearly. Sorry that you can't see my point of view.
: did u really have to go this low?
It's a business at the end of the day. IF they dont generate renew or see growth they will look for new avenues. E-Sports has been big in the new and is up and coming. It is important to create a fair competitive platform for people whose livelihood depends on the game versus a group of causal players who play for entertainment. You and I are causal players, hate to break it to you but I highly doubt either of us will make it to that level. If you want a more game design oriented view. If a majority of your playerbase is comprised of people who are still learning the technical aspects of the game, you stifle their growth by rewarding their failures. "Oh I can't land Irelia's triple Q combo." - BUFF her damage so lower elo players can deal the same damage a high elo player could with the current Irelia. "Oh I dont understand build optimizing" - Buff her stats she is weak aganist X, Y, Z matchup. Now you have lower level players not learning, and you have professional players (who play to make a living) being forced to adjust their playstyle or be forced into a pick/ban scenario.
: who cares about pro play i mean regular ranked why people play her? she feels too weak unless u are hard smurfing or something shes somehow also an A tier top laner but i feel like every irelia i played against is having a hard time idk
You playing the game = maybe 5 ~ 10 USD PRO player playing the game = New Players + Marketing + Events + Hype.
: Irelia is a problem. As a regular top laner Irelia, i love her but i hate playing her. She is so weak to me. She is nerfed every week. But in pro, it's not the same thing, she is op, stupid, banned... I would like to be able to play Irelia correctly without being Challenger or Grandmaster and i would like that she stops being a problem for pros. Riot should reduce the difficulty on Irelia but decrease her potential or her tools (remove healing for example), so she can be easier for regulars players and not a cancer for pros.
The champion has high complexity therefore it will always provide more avenues for abuse in higher divisions where people are mechanically talented. For the average player on the other hand we rely heavily on stats and base damage to achieve optimal results. Riot can't simplify a champion without making them lose a portion of their identity and a large amount of resource investment, so they target stats.

: Am I the only one who like the old rune system better?
Yeah I liked the ole system better. Gave a lot more options, but I hated the fact that I had to buy "Runes" to be competitively viable. They should use the old system, but only the high tier runes for free. Reduce the balancing nightmare caused by keystones like "conqueror"
: Morde is Fundamentally Broken, and Riot will not be able to balance him with his current kit
If you complain about Morde's grab, you've clearly not been introduced to the idea of side stepping because that grab takes an eternity in its animation. You dont even need a dash, just perpendicular to the ability and it almost never hits. IF you have a dash, that's even better.

This item provides a shield to the support, not the ADC. It was geared towards helping tank supports sustain more poke in laning phase.

: Relic Shield Redesign
Another quick note: This item is geared towards laning phase. To prevent it from being abused by other laners, and during team fights its passive is linked to the spoil of war charges. The less you use the passive the weaker the shield is, so when leaving lane you trade off the increased shield strength.
: Mords Ult has no cast time. Its Point and Click. You have to predict who and when he will use it on. For QSS you use it after he has Ulted you. Sucks that for some champs you HAVE to get QSS by lvl 6
Whats the point of the item existing if people dont buy it? It serves a niche purpose, and this happens to be one of those situations. It's like your complaining about something which has a solution because its inconvenient for you to play defensively rather then just rush damage?

Morde's ult works as a debuff, while Camille acts as one-sided impassable terrain I believe.
: Turn the Mord Rework Back!!!!!!!
I think this whole post is low effort and provides absolutely no reasoning. Maybe play wait like a patch or two before posting this? Example: Even after hotfix people were like Yuumi is bad.... omg such trash champion. 1 patch later.... Yuumi is strong and cant be punished in lane. Nerf her. Her win rate increased by 20% and pro players are sitting at a 62% win rate with her. Give it time, people will learn to play against the champion. If they Nerf him before players get an opportunity to learn him then people will just drop him and it would be a waste of a rework.
