: Facts about TFT that are 100% fact
That Elementalist or Glacial are in every game and normally in the final 4 because they're far superior than any other class in the game.
: Tank meta was the lesser of two evils
yeah man I miss when tanks were relevant because games felt so much better every champion has some sort of % damage now and damage items just seem more efficient than resistances now
: So his W needs a name change after this patch from Rune Prison to Rune Slow.

His wave clear is about the same or slightly better because the flux automatically spreads and you can spam E > Q. In the previous kit though, the flux would spread and do damage and your Q was being boosted by Overload damage so the wave clear is pretty similar.

: Patch 9.10 notes
I hate to be the one saying it, but I wish tanks would get some love because bruisers just running down squishies and instakilling them isn't fun imo. If it's not Riven, it's Hecarim, or Jax, etc. Seeing the Rageblade nerf is a good start to reduce Vayne/Kai'Sa deleting tanks.
: New Conqueror Changes
3-15 damage seems pretty garbo imo. I believe there shouldn't be true damage on any runes since true damage in general is just not interactive. The healing portion is pretty interesting and could be quite good. Glad Fervor is coming back to League, but this iteration isn't the greatest.
: Riot needs to stop kissing Yasuo's ass
Yasuo is a popular champion and is pretty important in the lore also when talking about Ionia, so of course, they would use him in every which way they can.

: Crit Item Explorations Part 2
So we went with reverting critical strike items and just fine tuning them. Made the correct choice if I say so myself. The shield on Phantom Dancer allows you to actually feel the defensive portion of the item rather than just taking reduced damage and getting popped anyways. The Infinity Edge unique passive is something I’ve been preaching since you guys changed critical strike, so thanks for at least trying that. I still feel current Essence Reaver (and now future Spear of Shojins) unique passive where your non-ultimate CDs are refunded is unhealthy for the game. It completely turns champions like Riven, Jax, Renekton, etc into unstoppable power houses when they’re already quite strong from ahead. I’d prefer Spear of Shojin in its current form from Nexus Blitz if it were to get implemented into the other modes. Overall though, this list is a lot better than the first one you guys showed us (god that one was awful).

: 9.2 nerfs/buffs plan by MappleNectar
Don't think Alistar needs a nerf at all. The previous damage nerfs were good, but Aftershock makes a lot of the tanky champions ridiculous to deal with. I wish they would make Aftershock scale with level so early game you're not attacking with a wet noodle when their Aftershock pops.

: Crit Item Explorations
I really wish {{item:3031}} would just get reverted, but tweak the passive numbers so marksmen aren't hitting for crazy numbers. Just make the passive 30% bonus critical strike damage rather than 50% like it was before and go from there.
: We're going full circle
I wish they would just stop trying to implement new ideas and fix their old ones. No one asked to change crit items, but they went ahead and did that and now marksmen really suck. On top of changing crit items, they nerfed all base stats, making their laning phase horrendous. I don't personally main ADC, but I would've rather seen them just lower the critical strike damage modifier on Infinity Edge, lower the damage on IE, BT, and ER by maybe 10 and make the attack speed items 2700G versus the original 2600G. Instead, they had to completely change everything and now they're going to change everything again.
PhRoXz0n (NA)
: Crit Item Explorations
If they're going to do this, I feel they should just revert all the crit items and just nerf the Infinity Edge's bonus crit damage modifier slightly and make all the attack speed / critical strike item 2700G rather than 2600G. Problem solved then and there. The problem with crit was ADCs were two shotting squishies, so we just reduce the damage modifier on IE from 50% bonus critical strike damage to 30% and go from there.
: Will Riot ever admit that runes reforged is a complete failure?
I wish the keystones and masteries would provide utility or damage rather than utility and damage. Conquerer for example (which I don't think is busted) gives AD and utility with the true damage. Grasp gives bonus health on proc, deals damage, and heals you. Aery gives damage and can give a shield. The masteries from a majority of the trees are pretty balanced, but the Domination tree gives too much damage for no reason.
: Like, I get that China is league's biggest playerbase
Reminds me of when H1Z1 had to change the cop cars to taxis and the red blood in the game to black "liquid" because the Chinese government didn't approve of people shooting at cops and obviously the blood. Fortunately they only changed the theme on the Chinese server, so hopefully Riot will do the same.
: What’s more healthier? Reducing damage or increasing tankiness?
Reducing damage would go a long way in my opinion. Buffing tankiness would bring back Season 6 tank meta where tanks would just dominate the scene while building full tank since their base damages are too high or their CDs are too low or both. I wish they would just go class by class and do an overhaul of damage/cooldown nerfs.
: A few questions from a Dota 2 player about game balance
1) {{champion:236}} is either really good or really bad. If Lucian is pick/ban, the champion/game isn't balanced correctly due to his movement and solo kill potential. Right now critical strike carries are pretty bad, so that opens up Lucian as being a viable pick since he doesn't rely on the critical strike items to deal damage. Pair him up with a {{champion:201}} and they're pretty much unstoppable. 2) Snowballing has been a problem for a while now (I'd say the whole duration of Season 8) and Riot is attempting to stunt the snowballing by adding a bounty system that can reward up to 1000G if you shutdown the person who's snowballing. On the flip side of things, Riot also reduced respawn timers awhile ago and recently up'd the stats gained from the dragons and shortened the cooldown of Baron/all elemental dragons including Elder so teams who are snowballing can absolutely crush their enemy. 3) Ever since the new Runes came into effect, burst damage was immediately a problem. The shielding supports were also nerfed (which they needed to) so enchanters are still viable to shield some damage, but aren't broken OP like they used to be. A lot of the S+ champions being played now are also played in pro play ({{champion:7}} / {{champion:104}} / {{champion:266}}) so Riot likes to keep them viable for "entertainment purposes" since watching league is more important to Riot than the actual players playing the game. They're likely going to be nerfed now since the pro scene is in offseason right now, but new champions will rise and stay busted for a few months and eventually fall over the course of the new season like always. 4) Games nowadays are all centered around early game pressure, damage, and scuttle control. If your jungler plays with his eyes open and happens to have his team assist him around those early scuttles, he's most likely going to snowball the game in favor of your team. On the flip side, if your team loses those early skirmishes around scuttle or they just get solo killed, you might as well just ff @ 15 unless you can somehow collect the bounty from your enemy after you or your teammates fed him multiple kills to rack it up. _ - Thoughts from your average Platinum player_

I really wish Riot would prioritize buffing weaker champions rather than nerfing strong champions. Obviously as strong champions get nerfed, new champions take their place, but some champions are never in that rotation of being strong or weak and are always just weak.

: On one hand we have Teemo, a guy who has only seen nerfs since season 2, and whose kit is so weak that no one has ever played him in real matches. For some reason, Riot wants to ignore these "unimportant" champions (Trynd, Malph, Panth to name a few more. Yes, Panth is broken against some champs, but his gamestyle is pathetic. Point-click with no strategy and lose hard as game progresses). Such linear gameplays have made them too weak to even be considered for good matches. On the other hand, we have champs like Vik, Aatrox, Ryze, Yasuo, Orianna, Urgot, Ornn, Tahm... champs that have multiple things in one ability and who can offer too many things even after being completely bad at game knowledge. A bronze player playing Ornn will be more respected in a team than a plat Teemo. They have shields, cc, high base damage, mobility, various builds to move around, and Riot's pure love. For some reason, they are always getting tweaked with the promise of finding the right balance, but there is always a way to abuse them simply because of the amount of diversity their abilities offer. Vik players need to press one q, a freaking point click, that can give him more than what any of the linear gameplay champions have in their whole kit. If Riot doesn't think he needs a nerf, then they are lying about balancing the game. Also, stop tweaking Aatrox Ryze and Ornn thousand times a year and work on champs that really need a rework.

That's what assassins do. Yes, but it's just frustrating when you're 30+ cs ahead and maybe a kill and tower gold, but Talon jumps a wall and kills me in 1.71 seconds because I'm slightly extended..

I wish every assassin would get slightly nerfed, like remove 10-20 damage from their main damaging ability for the love of god. No reason a Talon, Leblanc, etc from behind should still be able to one shot me if I mess up.

Rioter Comments
: Viktor Top is the same as Vayne,Lucian,Gnar,Jayce,Teemo and Rumble Top.
Play a counter into Viktor top that rushes a perma-slow and bonus movement speed. If you can find a counter to Viktor top, I applaud you because even the pros can't find the answer to that champion. Gets crazy AP from his hex core item and a fat shield do to mana builds that's on a 3 or 4 seconds cooldown. Explain to me who can even walk into lane with Viktor top.

: Viktor Top does not create a diverse lane. AP Ranged tops never have.
Personally believe they need to nerf the shield and the movement speed he gets from his Q when it's augmented. If they don't go with the shield nerf, they need to bump the CD of his Q by 2-3 seconds at every single rank.
Alve (NA)
: Promos are artificially skewed to keep you in your division and playing more
Completely agree. Doesn't make sense that you're playing well to get into promos and then you might just have an off game and the next game was just unlucky teammates. If you reach 100 LP, you should automatically be placed into the next division unless you're at the peak of the tier like Silver 1 to Gold 5. Then I believe you should have to play promos because you're potentially entering a new tier.

Unless you click on the tower to see the armor/MR, you may not even realize it's gaining stats as the plates fall! 3) As you destroy each plate, yes the 160G is distributed locally to whoever is around the tower when the plate was destroyed, meaning you could get up to 800G if you're in the lane by yourself. Obviously, with your support nearby, you would get up to 400G since half of it would be distributed to your support. After 14 minutes, the plates are completely removed and the bonus health from the plates are also removed, so you would lose out on the bonus gold from destroying the plates since the plates aren't there anymore! 4) I can only answer 1 of your 3 questions. The visible effect of the tower doesn't change when the Bulwark trait is active. It just looks like a normal tower with the plates one it!
