: Theres no point in playing tanks now...
TBH I miss the tank meta Long teamfights Teamcomps longer games Objectives felt more impactfull and not something you shit on in 1 minute All you had to do is ban Sejuani and the game was fine.
: Dodging isn’t enough.
As a mage main, I gotta say luden's is bullshit. You don't need an AOE passive on a mage items, their speciality is already dealing aoe damage. And Riot seemed to be pushing it as a rush item since it's release, they even made it give cdr and mana while removing it from morello so now you are forced to build it first.
: its been like that for nearly 2 years, where have you been {{sticker:sg-lux-2}}
Started playing again recently haha!

: People want solo lane/Jungle Leona, but
I feel like Leonna is a perfectly designed Tank support. This makes it very hard to play her anywhere else, but god is she good at what she does! 3 stuns, Extreme tankiness with W, passive that makes her stronger with an aly... She has everything an offensive tank support could dream of. Sure it makes her pretty much unusable in any other roles, but I prefer a champion that can fill his intended purpose to perfection rather than a champion who struggles to find a place to shine.
: Sexualization of a video game character, if not widely misplaced, is almost never a bad thing.
Honestly I agree. I expect champions to be physicaly fit, wich means they have attractive bodies. I wouldn't see any of them being average or fat since they are supposed to be fighters that train hard.
: Riot please fix Dark Harvest before you go around smacking champions with the nerf bat
Haha reminds me of the time they gutted Sejuani and {{item:1401}}... YIKES

: i believe early next year tbh.. there is still another champion related to chains coming after neeko and before the duo get reworked .. but that should hopefully give an idea ... i was epecting the chain champion to be released or teased as soon as neeko is released due to the 6 month wait for a new champion since pyke was the last releeased 31st may
Ooooh what do we know about that chain champion? And yeah I guess we haven't had a champion in a while, didn'T think about that :o

: Can someone help me get better at the following champions?
Can'T help on much but Lissandra, since she is my third most played champion. Is there anything in peticular that you have troubles with? Laning, teamfights, combos, escapes? Otherwise I can give you some general tricks too!
: A few questions from a Dota 2 player about game balance
The highest i have been is gold, but I will try to answer your questions as well as I can. I also play a lot of support and nami is one of my favorite champions! 1) Is it intended that burst ADCs like Lucian can almost one shot soraka with a combo at level 3 with no items? Yes. It isn't fun or balanced, but the few ADCs that shine at the moment can easily burst early on. Pure supports like nami and soraka have very few base HP wich makes them vulnerable to begin with, and the ADCs that are popular these days are the one that are spell based like {{champion:236}} {{champion:21}} {{champion:81}}. Since infinity edge got pretty much gutted, ADCs that don't rely on crit have a great advantage in the early/mid game compared to other ADCs. Also, items that are not crit based have way more utility to them, so it makes them that much more efficient on carries that can build them. All ADC items just give crit and auto attack based buffs, while items like {{item:3142}} {{item:3071}} {{item:3153}} give way more interesting side effects. 2) Am I doing something wrong as a support not being able to prevent this snowballing, or is this just the state of the game right now? The only opportunity you have to roam as a support is if you get kills in your own lane or if your enemies back, so it can be pretty hard to help prevent snowballing if you are not doing well in lane. The answer would be: You can help prevent snowball if you are doing well in lane. Otherwise you pretty much have to stay bot lane and make sure your ADC doesn't get killed. 3) It is simply more viable to play champions with high burst right now? Such as Brand, Zyra, or Lux, instead of Soraka or Nami? I'd say pure supports have pretty much always been very safe picks, but they do get challenged hard by supports that deal lots of damage. I think it really depends on the team composition. If you already have an AP midlaner, going AP support might not work as well in teamfights since you will sacrifice utility for magic damage, wich you already have. But on a team with lots of AD and tankiness, going AP support can carry the game. Everyone around you has access to farm and kills, and you get a shitload of assists so you can build almost as if you were a laner too. The enemy doesn't expect you to deal as much damage as you do since you are ''Support'' and they usualy won't build MR since the rest of your team is AD. Plus, Dark harvest is insanely strong and poke supports can abuse it. It feels very strong on Lux (wich I main), because you can proc it easily and if you are bot lane you can get 2 stacks for one if you win a fight. Also I must say building AP items always felt more impactfull to me, be it on pure supports or AP supports. {{item:3285}} always feels like more of a powerspike than let's say {{item:3107}}, that brings nothing but an active. Supports have some nice AP scalings, you can give so much MS with nami and heal for much more if you go AP rather than support. The utility you lack in item actives, you make up for it by having actualy usefull spells. Support items have been kept mediocre stat wise because if they are good, other AP champions can use them too (wich is bad apparently). 4) Are games generally much closer than this and my games were just outliers? or are games generally so one sided right now? Personnaly, as long as the enemy team doesn't have an inhibitor, I feel like the game can be turned around. I have seen many games that dragged on only for the team with the lead to end up losing. But yes, the game has been pretty much one sided for a long time. The new pre-season changes are helping a little from what I see, with stronger towers making early dives dangerous. They also don't get destroyed as early, wich gives you a little more time to farm and prepare for the mid-game. Hope it helped! Ask me if you have any more questions :P

And if downvotes are meant for this, what would they mean if dev's post got downvoted? That these posts are low efforts? No. It means people don't like it.
: It kills me how many people have made this argument lol. MAYBE .. the reason that all of the items in the game that are designed to deal with basic attacks are built with armor components is because ... EVERY BASIC ATTACK CURRENTLY DEALS PHYSICAL DAMAGE! {{sticker:zombie-brand-mindblown}} Why would they have a magic resistance item that counters basic attacks if nobody's basic attacks deal magic damage? MAYBE, .. if there were champions introduced into the game that had magic damage auto attacks, .. idk, Riot might toss a few MR based basic attack countering items. ..
So you are proposing to rework every single defensive item with magic auto attacks in mind just so the visual particles of every champion's basic attack fits with the kind of damage they deal? I think we have more than enough balance issues to worry about without throwing in something nonsensical like making mage's autoattack deal magic damage because they look magic.
: As far as I am aware, Dev Corner has never allowed votes on its posts, only on comments. Also: > Downvotes are usualy a good indicator of how the community likes something That's not what downvotes are for.
It did allow down votes when the mage update was on the way! And that's exactly what downvotes are for... If you have more downvotes than upvotes, you know people don't like the idea you proposed.

: Why do games like this exist.
If you are behind and go invade the enemy jungle, you deserve to lose. Sorry.
: Some champions don't deal magic damage, but all champions deal physical damage.
Would be complete cancer to balance. You could build an ADC that deals magic damage with their auto attacks and no item in the game would be able to counter it because every item made to counter basic attacks give armor. It's not just because of simplicity, it's because it's completely unnecessary and would just cause trouble. If you start using logic for everything in lol, Vel'Koz shouldn't buy boots, Galio should be immune to magic and Taliyah should deal physical damage because she uses rocks to deal damage, wich aren't magic.

: Hi Anivia one trick here, would it be possible for you to freshen up Anivia's character model? Make her feathers more defined and make her more visibly icey?
Agreed! I feel like she would need a model update way more than a VFX one.
: But then there are flops and stinkers like: {{champion:43}} {{champion:154}} {{champion:127}} {{champion:111}}
Yeah I have to say Lissandra is probably the one I'm the most dissapointed about, she lost all of her cool ''plotting to take over the world'' element taken out and now she just wants to keep the watchers sealed but then why would she have turned against her sisters? Old Liss was so deeply loyal to the watchers that she killed her own sisters but now it feels kinda off that she is scared of them...

Thanks everyone! I guess I was right Morello is the item to get!

As long as they push her into support role she won't. People like the MAGE Karma because she was designed as such.

: So you guys are making her more of a support than a midlaner?
{{champion:82}} {{champion:143}} {{champion:25}} {{champion:43}} a moment of silence for all the characters that were designed to play a certain role and were then pushed out of it. I really hope NeuroCat listens to the community and prove us wrong when we say Riot isn't listening. If those changed go through Karma will always be balanced as a support for the rest of her life.
: I get the frustration, and I'm sorry that the changes aren't delivering more for you. I hope that Karma mid will still feel like a good option for you (since we've got tunings that should support that playstyle well), and please let your voice be heard if that's not the case when the changes land.
> I hope that Karma mid will still feel like a good option for you Thing is she doesn't feel like a good option right now. Only you can change that and you are pushing her into support role even more with the W change and shared E value on mantra. I hope Riot listens to the community for once, but I'm not hoping too much because I know it probably won't happen. Karma will never be seen as a mage again...
: Karma Gameplay Change Preview
If I was you I'd make a poll to see how many players would be happy to see her changed to be more of a mage. You are clearly reinforcing her support identity with the W changes and the shared shield value. If this goes through, she won't ever be able to be balanced as somehting else than a support. Think about it before you go through. Don't make another Zyra/Mordekaiser. Don't reinforce karma in an identity that players don't want her to be. Sure she might be good and interesting, but is that karma? I don't think it is. She is a MAGE, was released as a MAGE and even in lore she holds immense destructive powers. I personnaly shiver of rage at the fact that this rework would only push her core more towards support when she is not supposed to be one. I'm trying very hard to stay polite and I hope that for once Riot listens to the fans. It's not because some mages are used bot lane that they should be reworked as such. It should be the opposite, if a mage starts to only be picked bot lane, the champion's identity as a mage should be reinforced. More AP scalings, less dependent on allies, more solo laner tool. You are the last hope for Karma players. Don't screw it up. The community is couting on you. You can be the example that Riot listens to the fans.
: I get the frustration, and I'm sorry that the changes aren't delivering more for you. I hope that Karma mid will still feel like a good option for you (since we've got tunings that should support that playstyle well), and please let your voice be heard if that's not the case when the changes land.
There was such an outcry from Zyra players when they reworked her as a support... Then you guys said you would rework her '' without a specific role in mind '' and look what happened to her. Don't even think of taking her mid now, she was even better pre-rework in that regards. Karma is a MAGE. She was CREATED as a mage, please understand why people are frustrated because you obviously don't. Her W rework clearly aims to make her even more of a support, so does her E changes with the shared shield value. Maybe she will be stronger overall, but this definitely pushes her as a support when this is not what she was intended to be. Her core is being slowly dragged towards support with every change she receives but she is a mage and should be changed as such. The leader excuse for her W is kinda off. Leaders take decisions, they take the lead, people follow them. They don't stand behind someone and give them tools to do the job. Lore Karma took down a fleet in seconds with her powers. She did not empower someone to do so. She is a controversial spiritual leader that chose to fight instead of upholding the belief that peace should reign over anything. Truth is it looks like you guys don't want to hear from us. Sure you will take some advices sometimes when its minor, but for the most part when the community wants something that doesn't fit your views it's not even considered. Mordekaiser. Zyra. Vel'koz. All were changed in some negative ways even when the community was VERY CLEAR about the direction they thought they should take. And even today those changes are not adressed/reversed. Remember Mordekaiser. Remember Zyra. Please listen to the players and make Karma more of a MAGE. Not a support.

: Need serious help with aatrox...
An easy way to fill the blood well is to use your W blood price. Don't trade until your blood well is full, poke with E, play safe. When the bloodwell is full (or when you only need 1 charge to fill it), engage with a Q and switch your W to the healing passive, you should win trades easily. against a fleeing enemy, the damage W is better since you won't need to sustain any damage. I play Aatrox in the jungle tho, just some tips that might be usefull in lane.

I have to agree XD But even so, if someone goes 0/19 as janna full ad jungle in normals, i'll just lose the game at the end and it won't matter. If he does that in ranked however, it reduces my chances to be selected for my college esport club or to be taken seriously when i talk about this game to people. Of course people who are actually good will always climb up even if they encounter games like this, but i still think they can have an impact on someone's rank if repeated especialy at low rankings.

No it's not a game. Let's take hockey for example. If you play hockey in a street with your bros : Game If you are in a tournament in a league: not a game. If one of your teamates fools around and doesn't take the game seriously in a tournament, the others will get mad and will blame him. Same goes for league. You could argue that hockey IS a game, just like league, but people have all the rights to be mad at you if you play poorly in ranked. You are ruining their experience and their chance to climb while you just don't give a shit.
