: What is the worst mechanic in this game?
Cdore (NA)
: I think the cooldown point is very important. I use to giggle back during the patch when Riot added cdr to more items. I never knew this would be the end result. Everyone can reach 40 and now 45 cdr with ease. Thresh is throwing hooks every 5 seconds. And spells are being dished out rapidly with no mana resource being wasted. No current tank can weather that kind of damage.

Thresh is throwing hooks every 5 seconds. And spells are being dished out rapidly with no mana resource being wasted. No current tank can weather that kind of damage. I feel like everyone wants to have 40% cool down reduction or the build is not even considered. Cool down is very accessible and easy to build, there is little reason to build items that do not have cool down reduction but have more raw stats... Actually I think it might be harder to achieve having a full build without cool down reduction at all.
: Assasins have no stuns or roots in the game. No, evelynn does not count as she is the only assasin in the game with that.

No, evelynn does not count as she is the only assasin in the game with that. {{champion:555}} {{champion:245}} {{champion:141}} have some form of CC. Assassins usually have means to dodge CC and skip the tanks easily like {{champion:91}} {{champion:28}} {{champion:84}} {{champion:105}} while being able to accomplish their job. They could also now assasinate the tanks with some help with their team as well since if the tank doesn't have an item or 2 yet they are still pretty squishy nowadays.
Smyrage (EUNE)
: My thoughts about the general balance of the game
I appreciate the logic Frosted Tips. EDIT: {{item:3056}} is a great item when you know you have enough damage to burst people under a turret, especially for characters that want to farm. It's also a great win-more item for tanks to get. It's easy to achieve bursting someone under a turret these days especially when damage is through the roof. I still consider buying this on Rammus and I could also imagine other mobile champs like Kayne or Hecarim might also might getting it as well for better ganking.
JuiceBoxP (EUNE)
: Sylas must be the perfect example of what this game has becomes. A champion that has pretty much everything. Dash-shield, execute-heal, gapcloser - knockup, single target, aoe. This champion is packed with everything

: Co-op vs AI difficulty
It's nice to be able to know how to punish bad decisions and learning the basics. AI limitations don't meld well with champions with skill shots and mobility abilities slapped on to every new champion. If anything, they should make the bots also choose old champions like pre-work Nunu and and pre-work Karma for example since those champs were mainly point and click champions that the AI doesn't have trouble using.

I get what you mean in your post but doesn't CC just do that to every champion, if they waste CC on the tank then your assassins and carries can just pick them off. Are you referring to the laning phase mainly or just in general? If your talking about too many champs having CC I can agree with you there. There really doesn't need to be a CC ability on every character they add into the game. Thing is that cooldowns are not even relevant anymore. Everything runs around with 40% cdr so there is barely any waste in ccing a tank. Unless you blow up an important cooldown like Ori ult on a tank.

Everything runs around with 40% cdr so there is barely any waste in ccing a tank. Unless you blow up an important cooldown like Ori ult on a tank. Maybe tanks are no longer being as useful since everyone knows not to blow CC on them at this point? Perhaps it's a knowledge thing that makes them less effective?
Cdore (NA)
: Crowd Control Invalidates Tanks
I feel like they are forcing tanks to build a bruiser or damage item at the very least to do any work. I use Rammus and I find myself building and completing Tri-force before getting a "tank" item like Thornmail... But then again Rammus was never a full-fledged tank 100% of the time like say Malphite or Braum.
: Say the reasons you dislike the current state of the game
When they took away the ability to buy multiple shoes I was disappointed. When they took away my Quintessence of Sugar Rush and my 20% Crit page I was angry. The day when Rammus is fully reworked I'll just be bitter beyond any foreseeable expectation, just like the ol' Galio mains. Change for the sake of change is getting pretty old.

: Champions That Need a VU (at least to their base skin/vfx), But Not Necessarily a VGU
Hold on, I thought Rammus had a visual update recently? He does look shinier than his inception nowadays.
NotJWK (NA)
: Question for League players who have been playing for 4+ years now
Just make sure you have fun with the champs they are now. Leblanc was lucky to be reverted. I miss 'ol Karma, Urgot, Trundle, Galio and the gang... but you never know. I commited an entire year to playing Rammus and I'm still going to miss him when he's gone.

: Exhaust Patch 7.5
I guess people are just indifferent to the changes then. Maybe Supports will get Heal too now that Exhaust doesn't Save ADC fights anymore at bot-lane.

It has something to do with Mobility now. It's only a slow now.
: I'm ok with it, Exhaust had 0 counterplay before, and now it won't be used offensively except for a slow, it will still do its job just fine.

Do you think Flash is just a better Exhaust at this point or...? Because both skills are mobility skills now... And you can compare them now that they are Red Apples basically. Or am I missing something?

Rivini (NA)
: Riot: "Malzahar isn't complete garbage yet. We need to make more hard counters."
It would've been okay to change champions in league if they were able to add a "style" feature to it... Like for Malzahar. If someone picked Malzahar and wanted to use Pre-rework Malzahar they would pick that "Style" OR if they would like to use New Malzahar they would pick the latter. I don't understand why Riot didn't do something like this. Would it be too hard to balance 2 different styles of the same champion? As far as I know they have loads of people on their payroll.

I liked the first Seven Deadly Sins Opening than the second one... I just can't find the OST of the first opening anywhere on the internet.

Lack of Confidence in the writing in general.

I'm very easily swayed to another's opinion unless I know for a fact i'm 100% right about it. I'm probably the only person on the Boards that likes Zoids and Telefang too.

In my opinion, I believe we have all these shitty cartoons because the real cartoon artists never taught anyone else their art style. So we get this stuff.

: Rito messes up a patch and now you can double flash if you time it right
I'd play the game still with Flash. I'd just have to make sure I use a champion with a natural Mobility kit lol.
: There are some good anime shows out there
I'm kind of scared of Anime clubs now because of this... I was mustering up the courage to go into one but now... If anyone would do this to me... I would probably just punch them in the nose and leave.
: if you were in charge of the Riot company tomorrow morning, what would you do?
Only the Morning huh? I'd piss off Tencent so I can have my skeleton Karthus back... (even if it's only going to be temporary because without Tencent Riot would just die from loss of profits)
