: Why does Kassadin get Rod of Ages first instead of Archangel's Staff?
Because Catalyst > tear if you're getting poked down and don't need a giant pool of mana.
: Cs, if you can't be right clicking your enemy. Don't feed, and use your blue ward once in a while. It's a much less complicated role than the others. It's a mechanical role, if your mechanics are strong, you'll be great.

How is it somehow a less complicated role than others? The positioning, target priority, keeping track of everyone's CDs, pushing the boundary where one more spell kills you but you stay AAing because you need to output the damage. The Marksman role is definitely not any simpler than the other ones, the difference between a bad, average and good one is easy to see.
: Jax Has No Counterplay
You played Teemo into Jax... this is the literal definition of "I need to end the game quickly and destroy him in lane otherwise once he gets a couple items I'm screwed." Same thing could be said about Tryn or many others -- you crush them early but once they have their items you're screwed in a 1 vs 1.

The split decisions you have to make and the flexibility you have with how she can be built. I do agree that she's on the weaker side of things right now (but when she's strong high ranking players make her insane) and I would like the Hunt passive aspect of hers reworked into something else as the whole throw a spear then dive in is a little boring.

What exactly feels old about Nidalee? I'll agree that she's not as flashy as some of the newer champions but I'd argue that she's an extremely well designed champion which has one of the highest skill ceilings around.
Cloud273 (NA)
: Can someone explain how Talon takes skill?
Talon's difficulty isn't about executing his combo. It's about getting an early lead mid and then knowing how to roam properly while not letting the opposing mid laner spiral out of control.
: 14 Day suspension, Reported by a 1/17 Ashe, and a toxic griefing feeding Master Yi
The yi's behavior is bannable as is yours so hopefully he gets punished just like you did. The Ashe did nothing wrong. Playing poorly or not a to level you deem acceptable is not something that gets punished.
Ligseo (EUW)
: Ban AFK player more consistently
You're proposing a reduction in LP loss should a player leave? You don't see any issues with that? On the other hand, leaving a ranked game is punished quite a bit more severely than a normal one already.
Lubeth (NA)
: Is Kled sleeper op or balanced?
Kled is extremely strong and has one of the best level 2 burst damage combos in the entire game. He can fall off post 30 minute games but considering most games aren't going that long he does really well for himself.

And so they chose to remove the shield double stacking instead of the Q CD either way it's fine.
: The basic rules of lowelo
Here's another one for you -- sticking to a one champion and preferably a simple champion is for the weak. You need to main Yasuo/Zed/Akali/Riven/Pyke and always only build full damage. Only exception is if you see some weird build used by pro players; copy it and take it to rank without practice. You are after all just as good if not better than they are!

: How is Lux escaping nerfs next patch when she's near 100% pick/ban in GM+ games...
Her Q CD change needs to be reverted to scale down with levels -- she shouldn't be able to get away with not losing anything by maxing that skill last.
: Hey guys if you think balance today is bad, look at this
One more -- Feral Flare... especially on Warwick's point and click ultimate.
fergno (EUNE)
: Account compromised, banned for third-party programs
The boards unfortunately are unable to help you with a situation like that. If you've opened a ticket up all you can do is be patient. Keep in mind that replying to that ticket pushes it to the bottom of the list.
Zemasu (EUW)
: Sivir - Yuumi botlane is Busted, Discuss here
It's not so much Yuumi that's the problem as it's Sivir who can reliably come out even or above in any matchup now. Let's see what the nerfs do to her and go from there after this patch.
ApexRiven (EUW)
: If balance team Doesnt nerf This champ... Something seriously wrong with them
Can you check the PBE before making a post like this? Over half of the champions you mentioned are getting nerfed either directly or through their item path.
: Finally the changes we wanted since season 6 are coming
You made a post about changes without actually listing a single change...
: Why are the "Dumbass" level champions so rewarding in this game?
There isn't a difference in power between what you would classify as an "easy" champion vs a "hard" champion. Both tend to deal similar damage while the "easy" champion tends to be more reliable in dealing that damage. So the question becomes why choose the "hard" champion since they give up reliability? The answer is pretty simply -- because those "hard" champions have a more fluid kit that allows them to not be as predictable and are able to adapt to the situation.
: Why can Tryndamere ult through any CC, including silence?
Because unlike any of the other champions you mentioned, Tryn really doesn't have any type of hard CC/Ranged abilities/inherent tankyness which is why it was decided upon his release that he should be able to ultimate through CC. I agree that the champion design hasn't aged well, but he's not game breaking either.
: This just in, skillshots sometimes get missed, and that is okay!
However if I stun the champion and you still manage to throw your skillshot where they are not I do have a right to criticize you.
: There is not many people who know how to mask IP,so it is ridiculose to use that argument in any discussion

I've played many MMORPGs where they were giving a one-time reward per IP that ended up being an issue when a large portion of the server was able to obtain many rewards and began to sell them.
1eone1 (NA)
: NERF CC CREEP DUDE
I'm not sure why you're calling it a CC "creep" when fact of the matter League has almost completely gotten rid of point and click CC and is instead now favoring it in terms of a skillshot, ability combo or interactions with elements (walls). I mean do we forget how Nunu could snowball and keep you perma slowed, how sion's gaze had a guaranteed CC with a 100% AP ratio, how Warwick's ultimate was a point and click hard CC. Those are original champions released in beta who all had hard CC that have been changed. If we take a look at the next one on the list Ryze (also one of the original 17 champions) is getting his root changed -- instead of a guaranteed root you are now required to have the flux debuff on the enemy champion (the duration is also a lot lower than the original released Ryze). So yes it might feel like each champion has a lot more CC but the way the current CC is being implemented offers a lot more counterplay and interaction and is actually quite healthy for the game.
AR URF (NA)
: Why is zed allowed to be strong/broken season after season.
A lot of people hate to be told this -- but Zed is actually not all that strong nor unfair to fight. The recent nerf did bring him a bit to par with where he should be but overall he is the equivalent of Ahri -- an assassin that can be countered depending on your level of skill. Try countering a highly skilled Talon or Katarina especially when the meta favors. Trust me when I say the damage and carrying potential they have is on a completely different league from Zed.
: It is a question of quality or quantity.Riot values quantity over quality,because it bring them more money. Ip ban would effect college campuses or households ,but maybe at the end it would bring more good then harm for community. I am sure if somehow quality could bring more money over quantity Riot would find way to stop people from creating second account.It is not matter what is good for community for them ,money is first priority

Honestly the only way for people to truly feel the pain would be to make League be a pay to play game (something along the lines of $50 to download and activate an account). This means any smurfs would reconsider as they would be forced to pay for every new account. You run into the issue though that a lot of our own players would quit however.
: Did Riot ever consider not to allow creating of second account??
There's no feasible way to do it that wouldn't harm the community. Phone numbers? You can use online apps to obtain new ones and it would harm those without them (the game is 13 and up afterall) Email Addresses? It already is linked to one but you can also create new ones IP Addresses? It would harm college campuses and other areas where people share IPs (even households with multiple League players for example). I can keep going on and on but trust me when I say everything you've brought has already both been considered by Riot but also brought up before by our community and in these forums.
: I report players for "gg ez" spam....
There's a difference between spamming it and saying it a couple times at the end of the game. The former is punishable the latter isn't. Typically what happens with people who say it however is that they exhibit other forms of toxicity throughout the game.
: Should I learn Jax Top Lane?
In my opinion you're better off learning a champion that offers something different to the champion you're already using. You already have a skirmisher top by playing fiora; you should consider picking up a tank, a lane bully or even a ranged dps/magic dps.
ceskyfer (EUW)

It's being nerfed... Also please locate your caps lock key.

Open a support ticket. Neither your chat log nor your performance in the actual game justifies a ban.

Last Desire (EUNE)
: I GOT BANNED TWICE (14-DAY BAN) FOR NO REASON
You are extremely negative, spam chat, continuously ask for reports and even told someone to kill themselves. So yes, the bans are deserved per the rules you agreed to follow. You are obviously more than welcomed to disagree but at the end of the day this isn't your game. You are free to spend your free time doing something else if you do not wish to agree with the rules.
: Just brainstorming. Wanting to throw an idea out there. I haven't played Sivir in several months, and while I don't think shes in a weak state, I just wanted to see what people thought. It's keeping her basically the same, just switching things around. Take some damage away from Q, make the ricochet blade last a little more than 3 autoattacks on spell cast. Just ideas, nothing I'm particularly asking them to try and do. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
> [{quoted}](name=Ares DuVamp,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=8hAfWX0o,comment-id=00000000,timestamp=2019-05-28T16:48:19.074+0000) > {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}} I guess I'm just not a fan or reworking for the sake of reworking if the champion is not boring/unhealthy/problematic. The other thing is that Sivir did use to have ricochet as a toggle ability (which meant it could be kept on) and though the bounces were limited to only 5 targets total -- it was quite the problematic ability. I think honestly right now all she needs in order to be removed from the #1 ADC spot is to get her ricochet ratios nerfed by 5%-10%. Sivir currently farms as much as she can until she has her 3 items than uses her W to just bounce damage onto all important targets by selecting a tank/minion.
: Rework or tweak for Sivir?
I guess the question is why though? Most of your changes seem like a buff to her and she is definitely currently not in a weak state whatsoever. I also don't really find her that problematic.
: Remember when Vayne...
Love a post complaining about Guinsoo when it's literally about to get nerfed.
Kanon241 (NA)
: Vayne should not go top
Play a champion that has high mobility or one that is ranged as well then.
: Why perma ban players that let their friends play on it and then get banned when you try to login?
Account sharing is not online in most online games especially those who try to foster a competitive environment.
: Im tired of scripters.
That video on it's own is not enough to prove scripting. I've personally done this kind of reaction time on numerous occasions by both skill and just stupid luck.
: Guest Characters from other games
Considering how much is already stolen from Dota there's not really a need for it. I guess that's what happens when the original developers split ways. That being said, balance is already a nightmare as it is... no need to make it even more complex.
: Good ward use
There's a lot that goes into proper ward usages but we can start with some basics that you should keep in mind. 1.) What champion is the enemy jungler (aggressive/passive/power farmer) 2.) How aggressive is your champion (early jungler/late game/level 6 ganker?) 3.) What route is the enemy junger doing vs your route? 4.) Do you have a weaker laner that needs protection/lacks escapes that will most likely get ganked? 5.) Can you contest scuttle? 6.) Are your laners buying pink wards? Just answering a couple of those will help you determine where to best place them. Whether that's to defend your camps, your laners, the entrances to your jungle, the river or even in the enemy jungle.
: If it's ok to penalize us for losing a 4v5 can we get a bonus for winning one?
No because that would just encourage flaming towards teammates that are doing poorly.
Neamean (NA)
: Sylas should not be restricted to stealing enemies ult
Ultimates are balanced by having only one such kind on your team. Think about blind pick for example -- having one Karthus ultimate on each side is perfectly fine, when you suddenly throw multiple on one side this becomes URF and balance goes out the window.
: Latest champs clearly shows Riot has run out of concepts
If your argument had been that these champs cause balance problems in the game and need to be looked at I would've completely supported you. The fact that your argument is that Riot is running out of ideas because these champs are not unique is beyond ridiculous. Zoe -- Steals summoner spells (new), shoots out a projectile whose path can be altered (new), shoots out a projectile whose ranged is increased based on terrain (new) Pyke -- gains AD from health (new similar to Vlad though), hook which must be charged to pull (new), execute ultimate which gives full gold to an ally champion (new) Neeko -- stealing appearances (new), root duration increased based on targets hit (new), ability echos as long as it hits a target (new I think?)
Weirdy (NA)
: Creating a Friendly Environment Between Players "Honorable Queue"
It's a nice idea in theory but it has far too many drawbacks to be reasonably implemented. I'll highlight just the top two for you: 1.) You would end splitting the community even more by adding an honorable queue. Will this queue only be for normal blind? Normal draft? Ranked? Either way several regions have lost draft pick because they don't have the size to support it; this would just aggravate the problem with queue times. 2.) You would indirectly create the prisoner island atmosphere Riot has so many times stated they are against having. While you aren't forcing all the bad players into one queue like other people have suggested, you essentially are doing the same thing by taking all the good players away from the regular queues.
: 8-2 iron 1 really riot? hahahah
They've made it quite a bit harsher for new accounts that were not ranked previously. Honestly this is a good thing.
SoFluent (NA)
: Banned for 14 says
Post your chat logs if you would like to know -- certain words that incite racism, homophobia or self-harm automatically become a 14 day punishment.
: It would be fun if building armor against Yasuo, or any conq user, was useful.
It's not like Conqueror converts ALL of his damage to true damage -- it's only 20% armor is still very useful for the other 80%. Now the ultimate part which is really a Yasuo only thing is obviously an issue if you went full armor. But honestly it doesn't become a problem until he has finished at least one full item since only his crits go through it. At that point your laning phase is already basically over and you have no business fighting him 1 vs 1 as a tank. If on the other hand you're a bruiser like Garen, Darius, Renekton etc... feel free to absolutely shit on him both early and mid game.

My go to usually for top lane when leveling new accounts if Fiora or Kayle. It honestly doesn't matter how many AFKs I get on my team since I literally will dive them 1 vs 5 and kill all 5 once the laning phase is over. You simply can't do that with Sion.
