: Don't get me wrong, I *love* the new lore - aside for the Sol retcon and a love for Varus' simpler story, but that's neither here nor there. To be more precise, I love the growth characters have over time with the Shuriman arc expansions and I adore the new Shadow Isle lores. The League just fit so easily into why the hell these champions are all in one place at all. There is a disconnect between the lore and the game as to why Sol should give a damn to stay in a map confined to a role as a mage against, say, a Katarina. The basis of the game is to kill a nexus.... For....? ~~Influence points~~? ~~Factions~~?
5 days later, but I figured I'd explain it in the way I learned from when they made the change and I was scouring for info about it. The game and the lore are completely separate now. Summoner's Rift doesn't exist in the lore. Summoners don't exist. The characters are based on the lore but their experiences on the Rift don't actually exist. There's no reason for why they're fighting because they're technically not actually there. The lore just gives some fun backstory for the characters that players can connect to, if they so choose. It gives the writers more freedom and it makes the universe much more whole, as each character no longer has to have a reason to fight in a war/arena/whatever SR is. Not sure if that helps or if I just repeated some stuff you already knew.

I'm sure Riot is smart enough to know that and won't hit him with some bot lane buffs that he doesn't need.

: Ahri and leblance are burst mages, Malzahar? Seriously? He's a mage, Fizz, Ekko and Kassadin are doing well ill give you that. The reason i think they should is because AP Assassins build nearly exactly the same as their ranged AP counterparts, and that's bad considering it's not often an Assassin makes an item broken, it's usually the ranged champions that do it. Lethality wasn't nerfed due to Talon and Zed, it was nerfed due to the ADC's who were abusing it, for example.

If LeBlanc and Ahri aren't AP Assassins then I'm curious as to who you think needs work. Also, Kat (alongside Corki) is an AP assassin that was a huge component as to why gunblade got nerfed. Akali is sitting on a relatively healthy 51% winrate and so is Katarina. Nidalee is also seeing decent exposure in the pro scene even if she's sitting on a 49% winrate in solo queue.

: Hey meddler, Do you guys have any plans to acknowledge the...rather powerful state of ADC's lately? In addition the rather weak state of most assassins lately as well? Also, every time you guys say "Assassins" in regards to updates to items, it seems you only do it for AD Assassins not AP Ones.

Of the AP Assassins, Ahri, Fizz, Ekko, Kassadin, LeBlanc, (maybe Malzahar) seem to be doing fairly decent. I don't see why they would shift the focus onto AP assassins if more than half of them are fine.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: July 11
This might be a little far-reaching, but has the thought of giving MF an animation on her W, making it possible to reset her autos in a way similar to Sivir? I think that would be an awesome touch if the plan is to make her into an auto-attacking-focused marksmen. Combined with the past changes to how she works with rfc, I think there's a lot of potential for her. (I loved her support but now I have a fun level 7 mastery that I rarely get to sport)

She'll need work at some point, won't be buffing her next patch though given we're still seeing her as a pretty dominant mid pick in pro play. On what planet? Clearly yet another excuse to not work on her for another 4 years. Too busy making Lux amazing right? She is part of your champion pool that gets something every year. Like Ryze. I just want to say you care so much about all of your champions. A delusional win and play rate you pull out of your buttcrack is another reason to not work on her. What will the excuse be next time?
Faker has still been playing Karma mid. Also, Karma has a low win % for one patch and it's the end of the world? I'm a support main who is glad to see her out of meta. Shielding supports are not fun to play in my opinion so I'm totally okay with a change of meta coming up. Lux is a champion with lots of potential if they give her more utility and less one-shot so I'm okay with that. Chill out bro
: Taking another look at subclasses
So what exactly do these labels do for us, as players? Usually when a game introduces classes/subclasses, it's so that old and new players alike can figure out what kind of champions match the style that they are fond of. With that in mind, there's no feature in the client to sort by subclass, so why even bother with the labels? It doesn't seem to help the playerbase establish anything.

: Can't be... he needs to be hitting champions or turrets for skarl to come back to him, so he would never have his mount in the jungle.
You can get skarl from recalling.. I doubt he'd lose half+ his hp doing a standard jungle clear.. I could be wrong though
: Sorry I'm late. Why no Poro champion?{{summoner:31}} {{summoner:30}}
Born out of love, blinded by glee Innocent, pure, magic and free, Faithful, trusting; often naïve, Soft, furry; their hearts hold a key. I think a poro fit to fight in the League of Legends would simply implode and ruin the time-space continuum as we know it.
: I love all the new skins n all but what happen to the old fun and simple 520 rp skins? Like lumberjack sion.
They said something a while ago that they were going to focus on good quality, but more expensive skins. This was announced when the pirate-themed skins came out.

: Okay I don't understand why you would give him an ult that is much better than tahm kench's. I thought you said that you wanted to make champions that serve a special niche. With Ryze's ult, tahm's becomes useless. Ryze is not only faster, but can teleport more than two people with him. Sure it's less distance, but that's trivial. Now you will have to add something to tahm's ultimate. Something that needs to be added to his ult is a defense boost to him and his transported ally.
Tahm's ultimate has a passive that gives him extra damage with max health.
: Champion Update: Ryze, the Rune Mage
This is an extremely underwhelming rework...
: Very difficult to read, wall of text. Try replacing some champion names(i.e. the start of each champ's section and the lists) with the images.

Great idea! Sorry I'm new to boards and just copy/pasted a google doc that I made. Thank you!

: Talon? Mid?
I have a separate solo queue guide that I'm working on for them but they're pretty adamant about playing as a team with each other so I made this guide solely on high-ranking team champions. Talon is on the solo list but doesn't necessarily bring much to a game other than straight damage and that's why I didn't put him on here. He will definitely be on my solo queue guide for them though. Thanks for the feedback :)

: Is high ping a problem with dynamic?
Oh I forgot to put this: I usually have ~60 ping. With the update, I've had 180+ in small spikes that really affect laning. It didn't go away when dynamic did though. I don't need someone to take leaver off because I understand that Riot runs on a terrible system run only by computers, I just need someone to throw a lil helpful advice since I can't find this issue elsewhere.

: Rise, Gravelord Azir, rise!
I just bought this skin and have to say, I am not impressed. The concept is cool but the colors and art doesn't differ too much from Galactic Azir. It just feels like a poor execution of a great plan. {{item:3070}}
Kazaashi (NA)
: There is MMR for Ranked and MMR for normals. They are calculated exactly the same way. What you are experiencing are people who don't play a lot of normals, but play a lot of Ranked, resulting in a higher Ranked MMR than normal MMR. There isn't much any system can do about that.
I'm unsure as to how that explains why I get paired with such low teammates, but we have to play against clearly more skilled players. I rarely ever get someone gold or better on my team (unless it's a friend of mine) but almost always have to play against gold+
: MMR makes me sad...
I just don't think it's fair that I played ranked for months straight and made the climb to gold, but I'm still stuck in the MMR that I was when I hit 30 (and it fluctuates when I play with some of my lesser-skilled friends.) I just bought Kha-zix on sale and figured, "okay I'm gonna try him in a normal and see how it goes." But my team didn't know how to respond to invades or make simple map rotations, and I had no safety in my own jungle. I recognize it's not my team's problem if I fall behind on a new champ, but there was just zero vision or any attempt to stop the laning phase 20 minutes into a game. I don't want to be that guy to play new champs in ranked (and I'm far from doing that) but I absolutely abhor how Normal games are matched up.

Fun fact, a recent red post has already announced that Poppy is getting reworked! There is not date on this nor did they even suggest when it would be done, but it IS coming, along with Quinn, Graves, and Taric <3
