: Win lane, lose game. (Team comp matters)
Bruisers are usually better than assassins later on though.

: MasterEUW/Chall EUNE Yasuo on buffing Yasuo
September is still summer. Pool Party Yasuo inbound.
: Level 2 ganks ruin top lane
Don't want to be ganked at level 2? Maybe ward before then and back off before committing to a fight. Or you know, understand when the gank is coming and prepare for it. Top laners will always find something to complain about, even though jungle has been nerfed specifically due to this type of whining.
: Eternals: My Thoughts/Hopes for the Product.
So, you mentioned something about making quests/challenges for each champion something innovative, something risky or pertaining to a big play. That's actually a bad idea and one Riot has said they didn't want to do when first creating missions. Sometimes there's just the perfect situation to get something like that, while others it is damn near impossible depending on what they are. And those things can definitely cause people to grief and troll. For example, what if one challenge for Leona is to hit all 5 enemies with her ult? Would it actually be fun to try and get? Or would it be reliant extremely on luck and your opponents just being extremely bad? For the record, Paladins, another game I play, used to have challenges like that, such as hitting every member with one ult or killing with a very weak move made for knockback but only using the damage, not knocking them off the ledge. They were extremely unfun and insanely hard to complete, to the point where it was hard to do them even in bot matches with a stack of 5. Now the challenges are more along the lines of "Deal X damage with ability" or "Ult Y times" or "Heal Z amount in a match with this character." And while they aren't super unique or interesting, players like them a lot more because they're feasible to complete.

: Why are there no pro-Noxus factions in Ionia?
There very well might be, but currently there hasn't been anyone significant enough to warrant being a champion.
Bârd (NA)
: Why is Garen now more of an attack speed champion than Aatrox?
Because Riot reworked Aatrox to something more healthy than edgy, worse Tryndamere with the personality of a dirty sock. Whether you accept it or not, Oldtrox had the same problems Trynadmere had, but was just significantly worse. They changed him from auto attack drain tank that had no way to be outplayed when rolling or outplay others in any meaningful way when it came to individual mechanics into a champion who can succeed and screw up based on the player's skill, both the one playing and the one playing against. If you really miss old Aatrox that much, just play Tryndamere. Or Xin Zhao.

The big problem for me is that I'm stubborn AF and if I start, I won't stop until I win. I thought I had replaced this addiction with Smash, but even now I still feel the desire to play.
Rioter Comments
: Monsters don't break Garen's passive at level 1 now.
Here me out: Predator Garen jungle. He doesn't have CC so his tanks won't be great and kind of predictable, so instead you just rush in before they can react, silence them, and spin on them.
Zeanix (OCE)
: Do not support Eternals if you want it to be free
See, SMITE has similar things to this where you can earn achievements for specific tasks with champions. And they're free. And Paladins has missions as part of the battle passes that can require you to do certain tasks with certain champs again, which you can complete for free for more Battle Pass experience. Why is League charging for this? And why are people still playing this game for any reason but sunk cost fallacy?
WardMyBüsh (EUNE)
: League of legends Elderwood Ahri, Nocturne and Veigar New Skins
As much as I wanted Elderwood Kindred and feel that Ahri does get far more skins than she should, this skin looks so good.
: Champions who definetly will receive a voiceline update
Ahri has had her lore changed 3 times now. She desperately needs a model update. And to those who cry Ahri favoritism: Just look at her model, her tails specifically. They all come from random points on her back when they should all be coming from a single point at the end of her spine.
Anatera (NA)
: It's meaningless to rattle off winrates if you don't even understand why people ban certain champs
Yasuo could have the lowest winrate in the game and he'd still be unfun to play against. I've seen Heimerdinger bans even when he wasn't good because he's just such a pain in the ass to deal with.
: Can Ornn get his first skin yet?
Juxin (NA)
: Someone explain to me on what Yuumi's weaknesses are.
Kill whoever she's attached to. Force her to jump to someone else to survive.****
: Compromise for Twisted Treeline
Don't mean to kill your hopes, but it would still require server space and maintenance when patches go through for SR. Same reason why they didn't keep Crystal Scar for customs. And they probably also had to do a lot of bug testing on the map too. Making Kayn able to move through the walls properly, or making sure Morde's Ult doesn't somehow send you to DOTA when used on the map. Or Quiyana and making sure her W and Ult actually do the right effects.
Fine. Make the Last Whisper items ranged only in exchange. Why should other classes be able to use items meant for an ADC, even in extremely niche cases? I used to build IBG on champs like Lulu and Sona in rare circumstances. It wasn't optimal, but it was the right choice for the time. Every champ shouldn't lose that option because if Ezreal.
: What TSM Need
I dunno. With Leffen and Tweek, TSM seems pretty stacked.
: one reason why im not playing ranked anymore since 9.14
Just logging in to upvote and agree. The client is the reason I quit the game. Too many crashes. Too much time waiting for Leaverbuster only to have the client die 3 minutes before I can join a queue again
Myrmiron (EUW)
: Since Riot is removing things that have no relevance to SR and a declining player base
I was calling for its removal for a while. You say top laners can't do anything, but when a Gangplank or Fiora feeds a Riven, Tryndamere, Yasuo, and even some high damage tanks 10 kills in as many minutes to the point where they can either A) Ignore the support or B) Kill them as well, your ADC is kinda screwed.
: How did Kai'sa get every bone shattered to pieces by the nerf bat when she's still one of the best champs in the game?
It was a hypothetical. She was played mid in a pro game recently, and according to the boards that is grounds for gutting because she's an ADC.
: Yasuo has the highest CS per minutes out of all the champions in league no matter what elo
Tryndamere: Does nothing BUT farm Yasuo: Uses minions to dash and charge Tornado. I understand you may dislike them, but this is something that you really can't complain about.
: Is it now time to nerf Tristana?
God, ADCs can't do ANYTHING, can they? Seriously, on these boards at least, if an ADC does literally anything, be it go to a different lane (and fail, apparently), or build anything other than a single line of items, it's an immediate beg for nerfs. Kai'sa went mid for one game, should she have every bone shattered to pieces by the nerf bat? But when ADC players complained about mages bot, people said that they should just adapt or pick a mage themselves. So, how about instead of complaing about an ADC going someplace other than bot, why don't you try picking an ADC to counter them?
: Can we nerf Pyke already?
Give it 3 months, that should give them enough time to sell the skin.

They were using the 2012 update as _**an example**_. Here is the point they were trying to make before you decided you wanted to twist it so you could rage out. Any time they put effort in to TT it has zero results. When they did a huge update in 2012 it had no results. When they did an update in season 5 it had no results. Whenever they did an update any time it had no results. They done sweeps of basic things to items to champions and still nobody plays TT. Not then, not now, not ever. People don't like playing it. It is and always was a dead mode. There's going to be minor pushback for a month then almost nobody will care anymore, just like dominion. people still want dominion back
Yes, people will always complain when something they no longer have. Remember how the boards were flooded with posts from Yorick mains prior to his rework despite being the least used champion in the game? This is going to be a bitter truth to you and to everyone on the boards complaining about it now, but TT is not popular and never will be no matter how much work they put on it. When they tried, the mode remained as unpopular as ever. The only way they would really get people to play it is to offer incentives, which they did (Golden Chroma for Victorious skin). And even with that, if it's pulling in the numbers Riot is saying, it doesn't pay to even utilize it any more. It still works on their server.
: While not all reworks Riot have done are great, Pantheon is looking good and promising
He's going to be like Galio. Absurd in pro play to the point where he gets gutted for everyone. The point and click stun & the aoe on his ult are going to be hella strong.
: You guys ever have that one champion that you're really good with
I had a 100% winrate on new Warwick. Granted, it was only 2 games and I hated him.
DeusVult (NA)
: Kennen does Teemos job better than Teemo does
Make Kennen into a mid laner again Turn Teemo into a jungler so he can actually fill the "Scout" role with his shrooms.
: How about the guy who voiced kreig from boarderlands 2
: Making yourself carriable
Biggest piece of advice is a simple one: Play safe and don't die. You're worth a lot more alive than dead.
: Game mode for new players & how to pick a champion
How to pick a champion: Pray the client doesn't crash on you in the select screen.
usul1202 (NA)
: How would you skin the unskinnables?
: To the Rioter in charge of the Syndra R buffs, please do read this one.
With her passive though, I feel she's not meant to be too strong early game. Like, they want her to be a late game champion who has to set up then for an utter decimation if she hits her spells. I don't know what kind of buff she'd need though because she isn't going to be able to get to level 18 for all her abilities to be upgraded in the majority of games.
: Are we just gonna conveniently forget how much Riot nerfed Pyke in the patch before hand? Effectively removing all of his waveclear and his damage on Tap Q, and that there is the possibility that, I dunno, he was legitimately weak in his main role and needed a buff? Unless we want to start the conspiracy that Riot purposefully nerfs champions a patch before to give them a reason to buff them before a skin? Seriously, I get ya'll don't like Pyke, but you have to admit that there was a *lot* taken away from Pyke the patch before this one, and yet somehow, it's totally about his skin that he got buffed. Or you know, the fact that said 'hard buff' also nerfed the damage his ult does against non-fatal casts against Champions?
Because they made him to be a support, so they nerfed his solo lane viability. You know, make him fit for what he was intended to do. Killing waveclear but doubling down on his 'unique support tools' (Gold sharing). He sure as hell wasn't weak as a support beforehand though. Honestly, it might make some lanes healthier if they do that for more champs. You might be able to get some ranged top laners gone (Neeko, Kennen, and Viktor all meant to be mids) and move some supports and midlaners around so Brand can't be a support and they could finally decide what the hell to do with Karma.
: ThornMail does not accomplish it's anti-aa function.
: why is grasp/glacial augment reduced for ranged
Because it's a rune that seems like it was made for supports more than anything else. And so champs will actually use it. The only melees who ever take it are {{champion:41}} {{champion:420}} and sometimes {{champion:75}} and it may not even be the most optimal on them. But since you, like every other boards user, can't seem to think that Ranged champions shouldn't be able to use anything other than one designated build path and rune setup, which rune are you willing to give up or severely nerf for melee champs in exchange? Press the Attack? Fleet Footwork?

Is Yorick being reworked again?
Remus Wins (EUNE)
: Project 2019 Skins Jinx & Pyke Teaser
People complain about Ahri, but they throw Jinx into every skin line, new and old. Wouldn't be surprised to see her next year in a Pool Party skin.
: Yeah God forbid Ahris winrate not be above 52% for like the trillionth season in a row
The reason Ahri usually has a higher winrate is because she's popular and easy to play. She's a generalist, able to do a lot of things but not being the best at anything. When her winrate dips, it's usually because she's actually bad. Her numbers aren't high and her scaling is fairly low. The biggest thing she has is that she's got good range and is usually safe when she has ult.

: No ADC is building armor penetration, why is this not talked about?
Falrein (EUW)
: Which champions get interacted with the most in-game? (Spoilers, it's not Lux) - A List
To be true to Lux, once they started adding more interactions, there weren't that many who would have relations to her. The only recent champions relating to Demacia who should have interactions are Galio and Sylas. I don't think even Garen has interactions, and he's her brother.
: Veigar Additional Passive Effect - "Who's the big man NOW?"
No, his voice should get higher/squeakier when he gets higher AP.
Mc Raton (NA)
: Okay Nerf or Rework Tryndamere, it's not funny anymore.
Make Infinity Edge and Essence Reaver ranged only. :D
Ahri Fik (EUNE)
: I will be creating a Kindred Concept skin every 4 days until riot makes one.
: What's the most evil thing you've done to win a game?
Old {{champion:20}} support. Basically just be a gigantic wall of meat and snow to permaslow their adc. Other than that, just killing a Zed before he kills you and taking advantage of the 5v4 after he quits.
arowin242 (EUW)
: Ouch. well, clearly riot is turning poppy in the counter for mobility. cant wait for them to release every new champ with unstoppable dashes included.(or a way to cleanse grounded) knowing Riot they will do exactly this, if not then it means that they learn at least from SOME of there mistakes. (like making mobility far to accessible in the first place.)
