: Can we make conqueror limited to non-crit damage?
That seems a bit unfair since Yasuo is balanced around his damage coming from crits. Other champions have huge AD ratios on their abilities so they don't need (or want) to build it. Fiora gets a free crit from her E and Riven gets huge bonus her autos from her passive so both don't really like building crit. Why should Yasuo or Yi be punished? Yasuo's winrate is 50.04%.

: Jungle is the only viable solo carry role
While jungle is definitely the best at carrying solo queue, mid is pretty good too as long as you pick the appropriate champions. Things like TF which are very good at roaming allows you to snowball the other lanes.
: Live footage of RiotRepertoir openly admitting a serious problem in the game
I mean the counterplay to shielding is to do more damage. Very simple. That being said, I think that shields currently do too much. Locket of the iron solari is one culprit. The scaling from bonus health is far too high. It should be nerfed to 12-15% to start, IMO.

Your average cs per minute is very bad. All Talon has is damage, that means he needs to stay ahead of the curve in gold. Tiamat helps you get more cs and helps you push faster so that you can roam more frequently. There is this guy called the lolhounds on youtube that is doing a climb to diamond series. He mains Talon.

That's precisely what you need to do. Go into every game assuming they will be apes until proven otherwise. You will NEVER be disappointed. If your team feeds you can just say to yourself, "Oh well, I was right. What can you do?" Keep in mind that if you want to climb you need to play BETTER than your sorroundings. That means you need to carry them. Every game.

Pretty much this. In order for assassins to be strong they have to be able to deliver cheesy amounts of burst damage. If they can't do that there's no reason to pick them over sustained dps champions OR champions with CC.
Jbels (NA)
: No, it's CC chaining tanks that drove them out. When you have late game marksmen pretty much 2-3 shotting every squishy, 2 seconds of CC is enough to kill literally any assassin I want to put a little disclaimer, I'm not saying I think tanks should be nerfed. I think they are finally in a place where they aren't too weak or broken. However, the damage that gets done to targets because they CC somebody needs to come down as a whole. There's a negative stigma when it comes to tanks that THEY are the reason the game sucks, even when they are only doing what they were designed to do, and I'm sick of it.

They still do pretty respectable amounts of damage. Why pick an assassin when you can just grab 3 tanks that can do the same thing (dive an ADC and kill it / lock it down) while having far more utility and survivability? Look at Galio, for example. The perfect example of CC creep. What's worse is that a lot of these champs have knock-ups which isn't reducible by tenacity. There's nothing you can do but sit in them.

: With people always complaining about how OP bot lane is
Sounds horrible. Everyone would pick tanks, bruisers like Jax or one of the few sustained DPS mages like Cassiopeia / Ryze. Oh wait, that's who is already picked in competitive mode for a reason: because burst mages are garbage right now due to how strong tanks are.

I would disagree. Illaoi is insanely frustrating to play against. Garen is very binary to play against. Darius is . . . Darius.
sakisyolo (EUNE)
: can i counter yasuo using jax?
Jax hardcounters Yasuo, yes. At no point in the game can Yasuo duel Jax 1v1 unless he's extremely fed. Yasuo doesn't do well against fighters like Jax / Fiora / Vi because his windwall is a dead skill against them and he has a lot of ramp-up time due to his Q stacking mechanic.
: This game is god awful for anyone that isnt playing a tank or ADC.
That's just not true. Supports continue to have huge impact. Junglers like Kha'zix can easily decide games and remain one of the most reliable ways to climb. Akali is one example of a non-tank toplaner that can easily carry games, even in Challenger.

: When randomly reading some old patch notes I found a crazy sentence

: How do Smurfs and Boosters sleep at night?
You act as though smurfing is some ultimate evil. There was a duo in korea who played tahm kench / anivia and threw every game. They did it for hundreds of games. There have been bronze games held hostage for over 6 hours. People regularly int. People BUY boosts. But smurfs / boosters are the ones that bother you?
: Is it OK not to build Rabadons?
Depends on which champ you're specifically playing and who you are playing against. If you're playing against a lot of tanks and they're stacking MR then rabadons is unlikely to be as impactful as void staff or liandries. Still, at some point nothing will offer better value than rabadons (unless your champ has horrible ap ratios) because of the sheer amount of AP it gives you. It only gets more valuable as you get more items.

koshkyra (NA)
: If WW is gonna keep his bullshit damage, sustain, tankiness, and CC
Q requires him to be very near melee range. It's hardly a dash. His ult is dodgeable and if you dodge it it puts him out of position. He has zero AOE damage (which is why he has to rush a tiamat) and is easily dealt with in teamfights. He's just a good pubstomper because people like to sit around at low hp or they try to solo him.
: They have pushed too hard to make games shorter. The game snowballs too hard, too early, and then the rest of the game is just a stomp until either a massive throw, or it ends. Generally, ends in a win. And the sad thing is the snowball starts SUPER EARLY. Geting first turret gives your team a 73% chance to win. Getting Rift or Drake? 70%. Even first blood is something like 65%. What is that crap? That means a game is damn near decided in the first 5-10 minutes of the game. Its basically over at that point, and the resulting crap fest of a game is nothing but frustration, or even boredom, of stomping. Its not fun stomping someone out for 25 minutes. it get old. Nor is it fun losing for 25 more minutes on a game that was hugely out of your favor statistically 5 minutes into it. It creates incredibly frustrating, unfun games that feel completely out of your control. Unless you were the person who managed to secure that first objective.

Getting first blood / turret / dragon generally indicates that your team is more coordinated or higher skilled than the enemy team. The objectives themselves don't necessarily grant such swings.

He takes an immense amount of practice and unless you're extremely good at him he's not worth playing.

It's simple math because only half of the players in one game can win while the other half must lose. "This is where Riot feels balance is, 50%." That's not where they "feel" balance is, it's where it actually is. If you take a seesaw, guess where the balance point is? Right in the middle, at 50%. But there is no "forced". If you look at the winrates of people who MAIN the champions, they have much higher than 50%, often up to 57-58% on average.

Just because Warwick has a 54% winrate doesn't mean he's going to have a 54% winrate against you. Why do you think pros don't pick him?

You can't balance around "regular players" because regular players don't agree on or even know what balance is. People in bronze ban Yasuo and Yi.
: RIP Kai'Sa abusers, she's getting completely gutted next patch
As someone that plays Kai'sa, the AD hit is barely a slap on the wrist. Most of the scaling on Q actually comes from AP, with it having a 1.6 max ratio when evolved. The hp regen nerf is probably more noticable than you would think since she has no built-in sustain. It will harm her laning somewhat.

Snowman Arc (EUNE)
: The real reason why the game is in the current state.
Disagree with the premise of "bot lane deciding everything", at least more than is normal. The fact of the matter is that bot lane SHOULD have the most impact since it's the lane with two people per team in it. Losing that lane would obviously have a bigger impact than losing one of the solo lanes, where only one person on each team will be impacted. RIght now there's a serious tank problem with pro teams having up to 4 tanks per team on them. This same tank problem is whats causing ADCs to be so important (since they're the only class that can really cut through tanks) and the reason that ADCs have such huge damage numbers (a lot of it is healed back by warmogs). Their strength is the main reason that assassins and burst mages are nonviable (notice that you only see sustained dps midlaners as well, such as Ryze, Cassiopeia, and Azir). Nerfing them would make assassins and burst mages a lot more viable, which in turn would create a greater challenge for ADCs.

: Trash laners are always bitching about not getting ganks when their dicks are contantly so far shoved into the enemy champion's turret's anus that whoever could pull it out would be crowned king Arthur. Then after whoever they're laning against goes like 5/0, they try to argue that they never were shoving against their opponent's turret, because just look, now the 5/0 is literally turret diving and one shotting them. So obviously it's the jungler's fault for never ganking. Riot should just post something like "trash laners, please stop pushing your lane, you fucking trash bags, unless you're an assassin that can push quickly and roam to another lane to gank" at the start of every game.
