: How to fix support items
Riot should just hire you tbh.
: Can we please just skip the part where we have broken support items for another 2 years?
On one side, you have ADC players, junglers, etc. who feel harassed by a support they feel has too much raw power and kill potential. On the other hand with the item changes, you have these support players who suddenly feel powerless because their gold income falls off late game, and gold is the resource in League that lets you buy cool items. I don't really care what the solution is so long as there is one. As someone who plays support, I don't necessarily need a ton of damage. I just want to have fun by having SOME form of power to contribute to my team's success in a clearly visible way. And right now I don't have that.
: My Personal Take on the Auto Fill System
I think that the existence of autofill underlies a much bigger issue. If people queued for all roles equally (or close to equally), we would have no need for autofill. Let's take support as an example. It's specifically called out by autofill in that the system incentivizes you to take it. As OP mentioned, League is a game, and people will play what they find to be fun. So if autofill has to exist because people aren't queuing up enough for support (or whatever other roles), doesn't that say that people aren't enjoying those roles as much as the others? The only way to fix the problem is to examine why these underpicked roles aren't as fun for the community, and find ways to fix them via champions, items, etc. It's not just about buffs or nerfs, it's about quality of life.
: So I tried Ivern in new season...
I've been trying to play Ivern support FOREVER because he's just such a funny and weird champ, but he feels SO WEAK. What should I build and what should I do to make him relevant? I definitely want to focus on messing with the enemy; bush tricks, poking, sneaking into the enemy jungle and smiting down their camps, etc. Any advice?

: Actual use of that Random Half Ring added Bot and Top side.
: What you want to be doing as "support" currently is: 1) go an AD lethality champion to buy the cheap new item (umbral) so you can insta-clear more wards = more gold income 2) buy 0 control wards, the wealth transfer should they be cleared by an enemy support is just too great. If you absolutely must buy one, only place it to clear a known enemy ward while your sweeper and umbral are on cooldown, and only in an important location -> dragon/baron 3) Once your quest is "completed" you want to steal the caddy and a melee or two from every wave just never clear 2 consecutive waves even if u must let a tower fall or an inhib or a nexus 4) If a jungle camp is up and near your path back from base, that would be shame to let that gold go to waste with the new quick re-spawn timers 5) Since you will have vision dominance with the lethality item, sneaky into the enemy jungle under the pretense of "warding" and if the enemy junglers camps just happen to be up, well u can't turn down free gold. If you get caught blame it on lack of vision from your teammates since you will have the highest vision score by far 6) KS every chance you get, it is the only gold you are going to get.
Can we get a round of applause for this satire god here?
: Can't. I tried it, selling and then re-buying any income item auto stacks it up to where you were when you sold it.
Damn. Just when I thought Wayward Fish had it all figured out. Wait, does the income on one item track for all the support items, or does each one track it separately?

: Mord can't get to backline without flash R, and then even that get completely countered by a QSS or just dipping LoS. So stats don't mean a lot when just just waddling around being merc'd. A 3 item Kass will dumpster delete a fed ADC with no issues. Simply put if Kass got a .4 AP ratio on his autos... his hard counters would just get Lichbane melee'd down. That's a no go. As it stands he has both excellent mobility and burst. Plus compared to AD assassin's is significantly tougher. He doesn't need DPS as well as his burst. Honestly I'd like to see Kassadin lose some CD on his R for a lower Q CD and better base mana regen. Would weaken his late game slightly, but make getting through lane a more common event.

That's a no go. As it stands he has both excellent mobility and burst. Plus compared to AD assassin's is significantly tougher. He doesn't need DPS as well as his burst. I'm not saying he needs a .4 AP ratio, just a little more than .1 would be nice. Honestly, I think Kass just needs a partial rework. He has such a cool concept but he feels awfully janky at times. I feel like the rework on his Q a few years back was heading in the right direction. It's an interesting ability that you can use reflexively in lane. Still, his cone needing to "charge up" to be usable feels like a needless handicap given its power, and his ultimate's cost scaling with repeated uses feels weird and complicated, and difficult to approach for someone trying to learn him (even if it isn't that complex once you get the hang of it). It's an odd way to prevent endless spamming in a game like League, and I think Riot can come up with a better mechanism for controlling that.

: Teamfight Tactics-- /Dev Update: Your Feedback and the Road Ahead
I would love the ability to remove items from champs without having to sell them and also break apart items into their components. Having this flexibility is very important to me when there's so much RNG from champions going on. I would also like to make it possible to drag items into each other to see what their combinations are without having to put one on a champion first.
: Nocturne needs his ultimate overhauled. Thats all. It isnt keeping up with modern League. His QWE are all very functional, simple, but solid abilities. By overhauling his ult, i dont mean remove its iconicness in his kit. same theme, just overhaul it to function in the current game. What I would do- Passive- remove the AP scaling, give it the tiniest of tiny AD scaling. Q-Leave it the same, bake 10/20/30/40/50 lethality into the ability itself(meaning the ability ignores armor, but doesn't make Nocturne ignore armor.). Completely rework his ult. Nocturne presses R Darkness stays the same. Nocturne fades off the map(Picture a Thanos snap), and becomes untargetable and quite literally non-existent on the map. Nocturne chooses a target, the same way he does now. Instead of diving onto a target, Nocturne rips himself out of the target(Like Kayns ult), because yada yada he's in their nightmares yada yada whatever. Selected target is immediately feared for 1.5seconds upon Nocturnes emergence, allowing Nocturne a guaranteed E, but still allowing 0.5seconds of room for flash to counterplay him, as it should. Deals ZERO damage.(Unless the target is unforgivably isolated and out of position, slap 200/400/600 damage on it.).- this should be rare. Upon emerging from his selected target, Nocturne is a shadowy figure surrounded in a blinding zone(Think Graves smokebomb). The blinding zone, smoke cloud eminates from Nocturne, and travels with him. Enemies outside of the cloud cannot target Nocturne, but can still hit him with skillshots. Enemies within the cloud can target Nocturne but are blinded to the outside world. Lasts 7seconds. Killing blows/Assists allow for a short windowed recast.

When you put it that way, I see your point. Nocturne's range is awesome but he's completely vulnerable when he ults and jumps onto someone. I would love a smokescreen when he lands on his target. It doesn't even have to travel with Nocturne. I would be perfectly fine with it spreading from the point of impact and lingering in place, and then I can use the cover to move into a nearby bush and escape, preventing the enemy team from just collapsing on me and blowing me up (like they're able to do currently). I guess I was so focused on all the ways his kit could be ruined that I didn't realize there might be ways to make it better and more functional.

To anyone reading this, I am looking to recruit a Sejuani for an epic-scale war/combat RP with political themes. See the link in my post just above, but the idea is that two people of the Freljord (one of the Winter's Claw who has been away for a while, one from the Avarosan lands) have proof that Lissandra was possessing a frost drake to attack Winter's Claw villages in violation of the peace treaty between the three tribes. The characters bringing this news intend to rally both Sejuani and Ashe for an all-out joint assault on Lissandra. We already have other interested roleplayers, including an Ashe and a Lissandra.

It's exactly what I'm doing right now in the OOC Lounge. Also, you see that Yasuo roleplayer over there who just picked up the champion and ran with it? That's the kind of attitude we need.
: OOC Lounge
Alright, it's time to start roleplaying again. My OC Zeran has some gaps in his past that I would like to fill in, so I've decided that I'll be RPing as him anyway, despite what I said earlier about him not being available. I like my action adventures and I remember writing some really good ones with the rest of you. On that subject, let's talk action adventures. The one I would LOVE to continue is the one I had with Kraara a few years ago that involved our characters Zeran and Rose, who had just uncovered a plot by Lissandra in which she used a cursed amulet to possess a frost drake and make it attack villages in Sejuani's territory, thus violating the peace treaty between the tribes of the Freljord. Zeran and Rose were on their way to meet Sejuani and reveal this information to her in the hopes that she would support a war against Lissandra to defeat her and punish her for breaking the treaty. They are also hoping for Ashe's support. This RP would take place in the Freljord, and we will need someone to RP Ashe and someone to RP Sejuani. We could also have other characters from the Freljord join in, either OCs or champions. We could also do any number of other stories. If someone else has a compelling story idea, please post about it and we can discuss from there.

Good stories are exactly what we need. I just don't know how to convince the rest of the community to get active again. It's an absolute tragedy that the reason people "moved on" is that other people before them stopped RPing. We've all deluded ourselves into thinking that once people start leaving, it's a one-way street and a downward slope into nothingness, and it turned into a self-fulfilling prophecy. There's no reason we have to give up. We have enough people even in the past couple of weeks who have posted that we can conceivably start a new RP adventure, or continue with an old one. I'm taking this to the OOC Lounge right now and I'm going to start a discussion about what kind of stories people want.
