: It's serious but from his facebook post it looks like it might have just been him talking with people he considered his friends about collaborating. It sounds extremely unintentional and I bet most of us would make the same mistake. Often times because of contracts, what may have once just been casual chatter with friends on if you'd like to work together in the future can end up being conflict of interest or tampering. I think the punishment Riot handed down is a little heavy handed but honestly they probably feel forced to overreact so as to not show favoritism.
Yea it's a pretty harsh penalty which probably stems from him being one of their own employees.

What is all this "we" crap, you don't speak for everyone let alone the majority of people playing the game.
: Is vi top..VIable? and how to play it?
flask isn't a bad option due to mana probs early on, or cloth 5 if you want to go defensive. Maxing Q for the burst/trades can be really strong.
: New black cleaver on what type of champs?
It's pretty fun on Gnar, the speed from it combined with boomerang slow and a hyper proc is pretty fun.
: @Riot Why Are Some Balance Changes Not Tested On PBE?
PBE is to make sure things are stable for release. They have an internal balance team, testers
: **MINION HEALTH - Minion health gain over time has been increased to keep minions roughly as durable as when they had resistances** --- {{item:3302}} {{item:3097}} {{item:3401}} This change will actually make it more difficult to proc the gold/heal. I personally didn't have a fit about that, but others have, so I'd like to point it out for a possible buff to the FotM item line, so it procs on % health rather than a flat amount. **Edit: I know it's been like this for SR, I'm asking about it being changed now anyway.**
That change is for Howling Abyss, minions have already been like that on SR since the start of the season.

I don't like this powerfarm strategy grrr {{champion:150}} ?? Gnar does perfectly well against the smite top laners, they get more health... he still does % hp magic and physical dmg and they don't have any resistances.
: Can someone explain to me the reasoning behind the double jungle?
it's not "double jungle" it's just some top laners taking smite. One of the smite items gives them a mini-exhaust + small true dmg dot when used on a champion and lets them build Cinderhulk. Which is a tank item like sunfire that also multiplies all health from other sources by 25% giving top tanks more hp. It only really works on a few top laners as they have to sacrifice flash and it's just HP and no AR/MR. Unless you mean the early dbl jungling thing. That's just because some champs suck in lane swaps and it's safer to have 2 in the jungle to get some lvls before walking into a 2v1 lane.

My favorite are the ones that let the lane constantly push so that there is a massive wave at your turret and then decide that's the perfect moment to flash into the wave and fight the enemy.

I don't have to be in range for him to get in range quickly. You also have a spammable slow, and a speed burst that u can proc from ranged that the spammable slow helps you apply.

Scaling cdr runes, 5% mastery, 1 item (Frozen Heart) and she's at max CDR not that hard for tank Elise. Tank Elise also doesn't have an issue going into melee range at all. Your original post just says "long cds" which she doesn't have.
: her cds are way to high, punishing her for any mistakes at all, and even when she gets full build there are other late game champions id just rather have. her early game is great but she just falls off and really needs to make that difference early game. her main problem is when laners see her coming and elise just cant get anything from the enemy team, and then she becomes "annnnddd....... what"?
