: Champion Weaknesses in 2019
is there a solution to the the conquer problem? I mean i understand that it's to help sole-physical damage dealer from being hard countered by armor stacking, but it feels to overpowered for what it's meant to do.
: I may have been misunderstood, I didn't mean that you get matched with other players based on your rank, but usually people in the same rank tend to have the same MMR, so I was kinda basing it off around that. And to answer your question, the splash loss is there most likely to balance out or (roughly) equalize your MMR in your other positions as well besides the one you played in that game. I'm not sure why it's like this at the moment and I'd be more than happy to find out more details about it. This is more or less one of the most logical explanations I can give you at the moment with the knowledge I have on the subject.
No i did understood what you meant, it's just i'm tired of the MMR system having fucking plat and higher level people within a silver or gold level game; they say that the MMR system helps people be within their skill group, but it's the exact opposite, you'll get the rare chance a challenger player being within gold matchmaking group, and it pisses me off even more when said challenger player thinks he/she is boss just cause of having a higher rank then all of us, only for plan not to go exactly as they wanted and ends up feeding or causing massive amounts of grief to their own team mates. (sorry had an issue with one of my more recent games) But the other thing is, why add or deduct points on a role i have yet to play on rank, i mean understand if its adding or deducting points in other roles i have recent just played in, but i have yet to play support, why conduct such action in roles i have yet started. this is what i was stating before hand.
: Ranked 2019 — /dev Update #2
{{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}} Someone better go pick up the phone. BECAUSE I FUCKING CALLED IT! Had a bad feeling this rank was going to have such a massive flaws going for it, and not even the next update is this already being addressed (hell probably didn't last a day after the update before people started noticing the bugs that came with this "fresh rank system"), no actual testing conducted, only jumping head first into an idea that was just stated without any in-depth description. The same issue I get furious for when I see people jumping on to an idea without thinking what the benefit could provide, what is the side effect(or downside which ever terminology you guys prefer using) of this idea, how is it suppose to be laid out, will this meet the means in which the group is aiming for. None of what i just stated was actually taken into consideration within riot's company, they only wanted a quick solution and so they threw anything that sounds out loud and hoped for the best; they also have to come up with some sorta statement that sounds legit, but in actually they failed to realize their own creation and the function they supposed to do or what they're meant to do.
Meddler (NA)
: I have faith you'll find plenty of things you want to complain about.
i took a look into the issue related to irelia, i noticed you guys didn't place some form of cut off within the programming layout related to her passive and because of this it's allowing irelia to deal extra damage without actually having some sorta mean to gain or to be denied access to such effect. the other thing i wished to address was that her ult unique cc wasn't really the issue, it was the slow that came from it; irelia already has excellent mobility and giving her a 90% slow doesn't help at all and disarm is more of a strong counter towards champs who are heavily reliant on basic attack, other champs like mages or champs who are ability focus wouldn't be effected by the disarm since they have no strong means of basic attack or don't rely so much on it.
: It doesn't need a full detail explanation, if you were to go out and do some research on the matter you'd actually find that one of the main reasons they did this was autofill, say you're in Gold 3 and you main Jungle and you mostly play just that, then you get autofilled to support and you're like "wait I'm not used to this, I'm not very confident!". So chances are you'll lose and then you're gonna lose some LP and then your hard earned rank is gonna start to decrease. **And that's where position ranks come to play. ** Same as before, you main Jungle, but this time you're Gold 3 in Jungle and you're Bronze 2 in Support, you get autofilled but this time you feel confident because everyone is almost at an even playing field since you're all pretty much Bronze 2. You win and you get LP not just for Support but for Jungle as well, that's cool. And if you lose, you'll just lose some LP in Support and fewer in Jungle, thus not risking your hard earned Gold 3. tl;dr **It's mostly there to help with not losing LP from your main rank when you get autofilled in a position that you may not be as experienced with.** Hope this mess of an explanation helps a bit!
you do realize it isn't set up by rank but by the match rating system right; they removed the old system of ranking a long time ago, from what i was told it was removed around the 4th season. the other thing is that i tested to see how the ranking system function, they say that it will help people get within their rank by placing more benefit in the position you prefer playing in, but i notice when i lost one of my games and checked the end screen, that i had points taken off of not just my preferred position but also got points taken off of my other position, why remove points on position that i was not playing on, why also punish me for areas i was not on during the game. can you explain that?
: When we switch over, you won't lose any progress and you'll get position ranks based on the games you've played so far. Your highest position rank will pretty much match whatever your rank was at the end of split 1. As for reaching Diamond, it shouldn't be impossible. I've seen a number of accounts end placements in Diamond.
can you explain in full detail, of why implementing this was deemed a good idea?
Meddler (NA)
: Some concern from people it's an overly effective and safe pick. Probably backing away from the nerf though, don't think they're causing that much of a problem overall and high usage rate partly just reflects other choices in that tree being niche or less appealing.
you do realize that you guys did a horrible job with rank system your group just implemented right? why make so many of the different position a ranking position, it is adding unnecessary work for no actual reason. i mean explain to me the reason of implementing such an idea that does not need to be established.
Vino (EUW)
: I feel like Riven needs more "shine" or something, her skills look like chemical zaun weapons, not like a magical sword. Also, Olaf got to keep his blood particles, why remove them from Riven?
i can probably guess that she is following a "noble blue" characteristic, basically will use violence but only to end violence whether it's to subdue or if they persist to be a threat she will either cripple them or be forced to take their life. sorta matches with what the "confession of a broken blade" show cased, i don't like how they made her ult more runic energy instead of it having shards sent flying at the enemy since that is ignoring what was shown in the last part of "confession of a broken blade". it also feel's like riven should be something like a hybrid since her blade does carry runic/magical symbols upon the base of the blade

i understand you guys i are hoping to expand the lore/background that relates to league or the alternate universe that derive from league, but can't you guys make something like a single player or in other terms a campaign mode that allows players to move away from the competitive attitude that is league and find something more relaxing and fun that is only found within a computer generated difficulty instead of one that is generated from difficult aspect of other human beings. I mean if you guys have such ideas but don't know how to construct it, look at dawn of war 2 and the way they design the campaign mode for that; you guys also want to make sure that a lot of lore is implemented while constructing this, no problem just look at how the company called From Software did within their souls game where even junk items hold a small amount of lore(and trickery if you were victim of a prank that was set in motion by the head of the designing of the game)
Reav3 (NA)
: I loooooove Wintersun
instead of placing focus on things that is considered miscellaneous; why not place focus in un-fucking the current state of league of legends in its entirety; u have champs that basically are bullshit in their design and hope that these design help the current meta only for it to do nothing or make the situation even worse.
: Hey SaltyBoiMalum just wanted to say; Riot didn't 'fix your life', **you** did. That's yours, be proud of yourself.
you do realize that you guys made rank even worse now and still have no answer for the scripters and boosters that are a major group in this community

question: why remove the unique traits that irelia had, why not do something else to her or to the usual setup that is her normal build?

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: January 18
why make galio into a burst mage with the buff you gave him, he was supposed to be an anti-mage tank, why remove the defensive scaling that were on a couple of his abilities, if you guys want him to be nerfed in the aspect of damage, then have him gain very little scaling from ap and have his defensive kits scale more with defensive items as he was supposed to be, constantly giving the tanks more damage even though they are supposed to excel at damage mitigation and sustain, while not possess the burst or general damage is counter productive in the ideals of establishing a more balanced game play

Decided today it was worth talking about though. If someone's going to attack other Rioters, call for them to be fired etc (as per your account name in this case) I'm not going to engage with their posts. They may or may not have some valid points to make. I believe we should be trying to build a better quality of conversation than that sort of attack though. Would still expect and be onboard with a lot of debate, disagreement, criticism of our decisions etc of course. Directly attacking people's something I don't want to ignore or encourage however. If your goal by doing so is to draw attention to particular issues all it's doing is making it harder to have conversations about them.
I have a question i wish to address related to the new tidbit of we are just recieving Why remove irelia's unique trait, why not just keep the passive effect of dealing bonus damage to shields but once the shield is down the passive doesn't take action towards enemies without a shield on them and her ult why not keep the the unique cc she had and just remove the slow that it carries, the slow was the major problem about it, the disarm was practically a one sided issue seeing as mages or champ so focus on abilities wouldn't be affected by this unique cc. I'll be stating some questions one at a time, just felt that asking 100 question at the same time wouldn't be beneficial if the majority of the question are not answered same time.

: Crit Item Explorations Part 2
{{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}} You guys didn't really gave any new idea outside of the part 1 crit exploration, i still prefer the current phantom dancer do to it's unique stats that it possess. Only giving small stat changes to the crit items, bringing back the old essence reaver, making spear of shojin from being a defensive bruiser item to a item that is mainly focused on manaless champ that are dependent on cool downs. This exploration is really nothing, its just tossing random ideas and seeing if any would take a positive interest, literally no actual time in coming up with something that would make crit focused champ unique in their own style, nothing that would make them strong but not without providing some sorta weakness, a pro and cons kinda scenario. But this doesn't provide any of that, this exploration feels more like nerfing the crit champs in general.

: We're aiming for 9.3, though can't guarantee that yet. Thanks, glad you liked this one. Was a bit of a challenge to write given was expecting a fair bit of disagreement with some of the stances it represents. Figured was still better to get a lot of our thoughts out there regardless though of course.
is jungle really a problem at the moment, i feel like it's not so much a issue, jungler's are usually a hit or miss kind of scenario.

i'm just being honest, they are placing focus in things that doesn't need such large changes but ignore working on the smaller stuff, i mean why have they not set up a setting in the options menu where the player can change the VO language no matter what region they may hail from; yes this doesn't effect the game play overall but it's just one of those "quality of life" niche that makes it a bit more entertaining. my personal opinion
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: January 9
i have a bad feeling of where this is going. can we start on smaller things first before trying to attempt doing something so big that it would break the game itself, i mean this recent update made the game so much worse, but the smaller changes that came with it were actually good. and these changes worries me greatly. i mean tanks don't want to go tank just cause someone that they will be up against would be packing conquer so they would answer damage with damage of their own which only hurt's the team seeing that their only tank went full on damage and now they have no front line to soak up any assault that the enemy team is going to be dishing out on them. i'm just so tired of seeing my tanks going damage when we need a front line to actually take some of the aggro, and hate the idea that is slowing implementing where everyone is going to be getting damage buffs where that doesn't solve anything at all. I say we place focus on the much older champs (reworking/adjusting them), to fit more into the current style of league, or make drastic changes to single one of these older champs at a time where it makes these older champ unique to the role they are assigned to. like make a marksman that does nothing but magic damage as it scales with each level up but has no scaling with ad. i mean come on it is sorta frustrating that we get champs that really takes no skills to dish out damage or possess a very small skill cap to achieve some sorta play.
: Do not be afraid to report through tickets. Riot Support cares and hears you. Proof.
sorta a 60/40 with that, cause i did try doing this since i got tired of using the in game report system since it doesn't help, i did get some one to help but after i reported several people for being racist asshole, toxic unsportsmanlike players, and on some occasion using scripts, i receive less notification of such individual being punished for such offensive action, i went and asked why i didn't retrieve notification of these people, they stated to me; "they are not allowed to disclose any sort of punishment being conducted towards reported individual", i laughed when they told me this even though their system has been notifying me of actions that had been implemented towards the reported individual.

: Yeah, but these items... mostly looking at Sterak's Gage allowed some ADCs to stay alive when they didn't have a shield or heal support. Adcs keep getting the short end of the lamp I suppose. {{sticker:sg-soraka}}
True, but they never diversified the marksman, they never became their own identity. Caitlyn i felt didn't became the sniper chick i had always viewed her as; she should be carrying long range burst damage rather then a sustain damage style (i mean she is a sniper she is going to be waiting to pick her target off from long range not firing a damn a semi - automatic battle rifle with no care in the world). Ashe should have played a support role within the marksman group seeing of how she has a lot of utility but not a lot of offensive option at the same time she is the only marksman that can initiate a team fight to get things started(that and her lore show cased her to be more pacifist but will defend self and allies if threaten). Grave is sorta ok thanks to the rework he had, but i feel like he should become more of a "shock trooper" possessing great firepower and defense but lacking in terms of mobility, basically something akin to a juggernaut but for range. And Urgot is a like juggernaut but I feel like he should be more of a tank, but that's my personal opinion. What do you think of these ideas?

It's a joke thread, so laugh XP i know you don't have to hack the company itself to cheat, but i'm talking not just inside gaming but outside of it as well; they even have dev blog from riot stating the issues related to the 3rd party users when browsed the site yesterday. and lucky you for not having a run in with any 3rd party users, it just doesn't make the game fun and they seem liable to degrade ya even though they are not playing with there own skills. and i do know its joke thread but i notice a statement in which i wanted to remark about.
: Whatever happened to versatility? I used to play a mean Tanklyn top before Steraks' became melee only. But nonetheless I think if they make this item... this item; it needs to be locked to ranged only SOLELY because of what could happen if it wasn't. Do you really wanna see 400 stack Trinity Force Stormrazor Dark Harvest Nasus? #No, no you don't.
true, the issue that riot doesn't seem to realize is that they let their items become too open and not making certain items become exclusive to certain champion groups or try to go further into the idea they had for both viktor and kalista and make exclusive items for each individual champion (with some background story for all items, sorry sorta addicted to lore ever since my time playing dark souls series).

: They could also make {{item:3071}} and {{item:3025}} exclusive to melees then, Lucian and MF made cleaver lose lots of stats, and Ezreal is keeping IBG weak due to his synergy with it.
true, seeing how some marksman are taking items that is meant for tanks or fighters; they could try and create items that seem similar but are unique to certain class type. i had an idea for a mana-less sheen item that champion who don't have mana can actually get an attribute similar to sheen.
LTK KoRo (EUW)
: i don't know if they fixed it on other outliers, but im 100% sure that Rengar jump range being increased by RFC was patched as a Rengar bug, i can't recall certainly when but it happened
you know this sorta thing wouldn't have happened if they had made RFC exclusive only to marksman or range champs which ever anyone prefer to call them.
LTK KoRo (EUW)
: no, i mean Tristana removing half of someones hp from +700 range with RFC+Statikk auto. Rengar jump interaction got quickly fixed, while previous issue got fixed in 8.11
tristana at max level is actually around there i think without RFC, with RFC she actually should be over 700 if i remember correctly; but i don't remember them doing a hot fix or a patch to solve the interaction that it had on certain champs.
D357R0Y3R (EUW)
: idk, apparently stormrazor was designed to be good on "frontloaded marksmen" (riot's words) honnestly the IE/phantom dancer changes are good, this shit is terrible on the other hand
i prefer the old IE just cause the true damage crit sorta ruined what randuin's omen was meant to deal with, and the phantom dancer change is actually pretty garbage, i mean they took away the magic resist that hexdrinker had that worked well with the shield that proc with it; at the same time they got rid of the benefit that the phantom dancer also carried which was the 12% damage reduction from all damage sources and provided a 7% move speed when an enemy champ is within 550 unit range, the phantom dancer became such a good kiting and dueling item though it was also accessible to all champs which made this a key item to some melee champs (especially yasuo) as well.
LTK KoRo (EUW)
: Because ADC mains want to go back into pre 8.11 state, which included busting people with RFC+stattik crits
you mean how certain champs were able to exploit RFC to get a larger gap closer or how it synergize with other abilities that gave a longer range and burst, i rather not experience another super man jump from a god damn rengar thank you. (i wish i was joking about that but i remember seeing one without a RFC and one with RFC and i'm more scared of the one with the damn RFC just cause i saw that it can also increase the damn leap range)

i guess, but if they go for the burst variant over the multi-proc, then the assassin champs are going to have a field day just buying this item seeing as assassins are going to be building a lot of raw damage or any champ that place so much focus in their kit that requires a lot of raw damage.
: Because sustained damage doesn't work. And instead of creating an environment where sustained damage can work, they would rather give everyone burst and call it a day.
the issue is that they never gave an item that is just ranged only, its either open to everyone or it provide a stronger attribute when equipped on melee. they never actually provided a substantial line up of items that were only to range or provided more attribute to range champs, there are a lot of items that give more benefit or are exclusive to melee plus there are items that are open to everyone but were made to give marksman a chance only for these items to be used by the very same champs that was suppose to help against them.
: omg I remember watching this as a child but can't for the life of me remember where it's from.
wasn't this from a old time movie?

basically, it wouldn't be the first time someone big on some sorta of media got recruited by a gaming company only for the company to nuder his or her projects.
: That got changed this most recent update so now she will still take damage from AA and turet shots if targeted.

not heresy, truth, and the emperor allowed the space marine to have boreal during the karava campaign

: I think it is baiscally official that the Akali rework is an unfixable failure.
i think the issue is that they introduce a new stealth mechanic called "obscure"; because of this, akali is able to play safe without repercussion (unless you have a shit ton of area of effect spells within your handy tool kit), the issue is that she becomes un-target-able and any time you are in a attack animation with anything that is equal to a basic attack, it gets negated just cause akali became obscure and the system couldn't register a hit do to how the obscure mechanic was designed as; even though she can still get hurt from anything that doesn't require a point and click function.
: Riot, if you can somehow update Ashe's base animations, I will buy every skin for her.
i rather see a full rework for ashe (along side a visual update if need be), her kit just doesn't speak so much "damage carry", and speaks more as a support; I mean this would diversify the marksman group where they're not all the same role to play within a team, seeing ashe as a support feels so much like her character to be honest, plus i hate the new passive she has, i mean yeah to have infinite slows is nice but it feels small in comparison to other slows and its so heavily dependent on crits for a stronger effect and that's not to mention that you can't get the normal damage scale from crit where you have to sacrifice a lot of other beneficial items to get a full crit build for the full crit damage modification; plus it gets greatly negated by champs (yi, olaf, any champs packing a magic shield that negates spell effect) who can negate slows which also cancel out the damage modification from the passive.
: Too flashy, too important, too noticable. How they warp the game around them.
true, their mentality is to make sure that it's looks "sexy" as minor choice of a word that is, and place little work in actually updating the older setup where its nice and fresh but still holding true to its diversity

: But now I can't take my 4 mana blues, and then mix and match ap/cdr/ad/as/armor/mr/health I just get the same fucking choices between damage, damage and damage. If anything it killed anything special about how I picked runes.
that is what i mean when i stated that i preferred the older runes and mastery system, it actually had a lot more diversity compared to the current system employed today, they stated this new system would make things more balance but providing the players their own way of customizing their pages to their own style, issue with that is that it only provided so few option and the option that is introduce is too one sided in what set-up to take.
GigglesO (NA)
: It would have simplified their system which they were looking to do...
sadly it didn't though it also didn't do anything wrong, it was something that really had no effect other then allowed everyone to play on the same level of runes that people would be carrying in your average match up, but this new system is suppose to help in making things more unique and diverse so people can have their own style to play, but that was a big fuck up seeing as the majority of players are mainly selecting masteries that are extremely broken or going for something that is too common within certain groups.
: I disagree but new runes are too disruptive.
what do you mean when you say "disruptive", are you referring to how chaotic some mastery can be or how things can turn one sided in terms of viability in the current meta.
GigglesO (NA)
: All they needed to do was give the old runes away for free. If they wanted to streamline the old runes all they had to do is make the minor runes into basically quints.
that really wouldn't solve anything, and beside they sorta already gave the runes for free near the last moment of the old system live play
