: How and why did Crimson Akali, an homage to Soul Calibur's Taki, become Infernal???
honestly crimson akali was one of my favorites of her splash arts, maybe even my favorite, im really sad that its gone
: Yeah. But apparently, the designers of her appereance post VGU didn't. Now she looks like she is going to practicaly fight in a bikini. Don't get me wrong. I like sexy ladies and fanservice when proper like anyone, but... I'm the only one that feels like her appereance seems to be almost ridicously skimpy?

: When your laner tells you not to fight someone, please listen.
honestly this is one of the most annoying things about playing top lane. sometimes i will say that it may look on the surface like its possible, but then ill have times where my jungle will go in when im entirely out of mana and at half hp, or when half my abilities are on cd, and then after they die theyll spam ping missing on me and start all chatting about how trash i am for "just standing there" while they died to a "totally killable enemy"
: Who do i main to be a one trick player? (One trick responses encouraged and welcomed!)
basically you have 2 paths you could go. you could do the "fill champ", like the first comment says take someone who can go anywhere and who you dont have to worry about being banned, or you could pick someone with really high skill potential who can solo carry if needs be. imo jungle and mid are the best two roles for that because of early game roaming and being able to snowball your allies, but if youre a great split pusher then top can also be good (basically it all just depends on your playstyle). i cant really say specifics just because i havent played in several months because i discovered overwatch then i discovered enderal then i rediscovered skyrim and afterwards ill probably rediscover a thousand other games filled with sweet sweet nostalgia.
: "If crowd control is the only way to counter a champion, then its design is bad."
id say if the ONLY counterplay available truly is cc (or the other forms of counterplay are so underwhelming or minimal that theyre easily worked around for the enemy), as in theyre tanky or otherwise really hard to kill damage wise, they themselves have more than reasonable damage, they have mobility/their own cc, etc. then id agree. but if its just someone like tryndamere who has more counterplay than just cc that people at low elo arent willing to see, then im ok with cc being the most primary form of counterplay.

: Remove that fucking wind wall form the game already
i wouldnt mind it if it werent for the fact that A) its huge and lasts a long time B) it has no cap to the number of projectiles it can block and C) the hitbox on it is really stupid and you can actually block a skill shot coming at you from behind by popping a windwall out in front of you

: Account Hacked, Sold, Permabanned, tried everything but can't seem to get through
honestly i feel like theres not really much evidence to find if your account gets compromised to begin with most of the time. usually its just someone who got your username and password and then went and changed the email and password, but if they got your login info then what evidence of compromise could there be beyond sudden change in skill level, player behavior, and location played from?

: The F-ing New Guys at Riot are repeating mistakes from 7+ years ago.
ive been laughing/crying for like 5 years about how when they started doing bigger jungle changes (starting with pushing back the spawn time of buffs) they said they were trying to "diversify jungle" so that champions who would normally not be viable jungle now would, and yet almost every single change theyve made since has narrowed the list of viable junglers
Jordei (EUW)
: Why is this random hardstuck getting so much attention tho? :D he is not even funny or something just annoying as fk, crys about every champ but plays jax, probaly the most overpowered toplane champ right now. rangerzx just got 80% wr chall with him, but somehow riot still thinks that jax is balanced? correct me if im wrong, but i dont see any jax nerfs yet on the pbe. maybe indirectly with item changes.
yes lets nerf a champion because a high elo one trick does super well with him

: @RiotRepetoir Spear Of Shoji Shouldn't go live and here's why and the problems i can see with it.
in case bruisers werent enough of a joke, we decided to make it more effective to just build ad hyper carry so that between the spear, phantom dancer, deaths dance, and lifesteal, youll be tankier by far anyways
: Can someone explain why I have silvers with less than 15 games played in mid gold game?
because A) the difference between Gold V and Silver is frankly borderline nonexistent, and B) with only 15 games played its 100% possible for someone to be in a lower rank than their mmr
: What we can all learn from Zoe
this is one of the reasons why i still stand by my belief that zoe as a character is one of the best things riot ever did (also she reminds me a lot of my little sister which i love)

Fulcon (NA)
: Not the same. Maybe it's just me, but the image I posted doesn't have make up (beyond the purple streaks on her cheeks) and the hair is much messier, as opposed to the current Kai'sa, which looks like a plastic doll with perfectly shampooed and conditioned hair. I don't mind her being attractive, I just think she's attractive in the wrong way. If that makes sense.
i get what youre saying, but i 100% disagree. i think that they made her attractive in a perfectly tasteful way that wasnt unreasonable from a lore perspective at all (or at least not so much that it goes beyond the normal aesthetic touch ups from what the ACTUAL appearance would be in such a circumstance)
: Assassin class update was certainly when things went seriously down hill, though the trends that lead to the current state of things started with the mage class update, and the slow damage reduction creep on semi-assassins/burst mages. And I certainly agree, she was the epitome of feast or famine, and new Fiora is pretty awful to play anything even remotely tanky against.

: People seem to have forgotten how utterly toxic the game used to be
personally i liked pre-rework fiora a thousand times better. while new one cant just 1v5 unless shes both fed and really good whereas old one was like riven where she just needs to be hyper fed, shes a lot more cancer to deal with. yes as a champion design she was definitely flawed because she was essentially the epitome of feast or famine (or at least thats how it felt), but id still take it any day over the cancer fest that is the new fiora im not gonna pretend like the game was sunshine and rainbows before and im not gonna pretend like its all doom and gloom now, but i can say with certainty that its not as fun and champions arent being changed and balanced properly (cough tank rework cough assassin rework cough)

: What on earth is wrong with this community?!
it isnt so much that everyone is toxic as it is that most people arent specifically tilt proof all the time as well as the fact that you only get 1 honor every game and usually people honor someone for either great shot calling or fun to play with
: Rylai should have less AP, but significantly more HP and a stronger slow
i agree actually, as someone who loves to build rylais for the slow, but they shouldnt do it until they buff ap on some other items. ap hyper carries dont have nearly the same options they used to
: A Star Guardian Leona design
honestly id pay good money for star guardian riven

i think that stuns should be put into effect at the end of the dash (so long as the dash actually started first) but roots should just straight up stop a dash imo

: I feel like riven in her new lore is bland and useless. I fucking hate it. I have tried, (I am gonna go reread the color story on a few days) but the old riven had a purpose. The old riven believed in something (even if it did fail her, kinda) and she had a reason to fight and a reason to wield her sword. In fact the briliance of her original lore is that it explained her breaking the sword AND still having it. Riven other the new lore just feels like a worthless shade of her former self. She is suicidal in all but action. Her only redeeming quality as a character is her almost self depreciating respect for the farm couple. (She refused to defend herself for fear of spilling blood on farm land) The random obsession with her learning the words for siblings and parents didn't make sense considering how long she had lived with them (I believe a year but I can't say that for certain) This new lore flies in the face of everything she was as a character and everything her in game quotes depict her to be. I hate it.
it sounds like you completely missed literally the entire point of the story. the point in the story is more or less to show her becoming someone who is now pretty much completely anti noxus and seeking refuge from the ghosts of her past (much like yasuo). the new riven still has a purpose, its just not on so grand a scale as reforming the whole of noxian ideals. instead its simply seeking redemption for herself. btw, the obsession for learning those words wasnt random, it was because they saw her as family and she in turn saw them as hers. she loved the people who treated her as a daughter despite all their many reasons to hate her. i get what youre saying about the old lore, but personally i think the new riven who now (so far as i can tell) 100% rejects everything to do with noxus and only cares about finding her own redemption and starting anew is way way better. its good to have an anti-noxus "noxian". as far as your last statement goes, i 100% disagree. the only real difference of anything that was either implied or directly stated at any point is that she no longer seeks to redeem the noxian ideals and shes no longer obsessed with the noxian ideal of strength. thats it. everything else thats new goes against nothing she was said to be or have done previously. also, i went and looked at her in game quotes and idk what youre talking about, her quotes actually fit MORE with the new lore than with the old.
Rioter Comments
: Basically what ward said, there is really nothing to fix, its not a bug. The interaction is working as intended, I imagine Riot is internally checking the numbers to see if its actually a problem. His AS doesn't scale, so it'll take him a while to stack it up and really get that high AD. He fires a little faster than one shot a second, so with free fire the fastest he can max stack about 8-8.5 seconds with constant shooting including his reload time. Considering how little stats it gives initially, its a super ramp item. Personally I like the idea of it having a unique interaction with Jhin where he slowly builds up to murder mode. But I've only played against it like twice and neither time was really an issue, and I don't think I've ever had one on my team.

: I think Venom is a good aproximation of what we originally expected with Kai'sa
i for one really like the way the did it exactly how it is, they intended for her to be virtually unscathed physically and imo that was the right call. also, had they dont it like venom i get the feeling they would have just gotten nothing but people saying "riot literally just cut and pasted venom into their game so lazy"

: It's at least more consistent now. In the old days the standard Shiv build gave total of 35% crit. Wild Turtle won TSM the finals against Cloud 9 by critting every single fucking hit in a row during the last team fight, with just 35% crit. On what was a hyper-broken Tristana from a lightyear away to boot. It was the biggest pile of bullshit I've ever seen in competitive play.
