: @Riot are there going to be any changes to tank supports?
Riot is only changing the 3 jungle tanks.
: Junglers....your farm isn't that important
No farm means you are going to be more worthless the longer the game goes on.
: How do you guys feel about Jinx?
Good late game champ, good wave clear once she gets hurricane, but needs a little bit of time to get there. I like the fact she's got a little utility in her kit and her ult is fun if you get a kill.
: 4th edition had a very simplified, unbalanced, and at the same time heavily miniatures/grid necessary combat system that left almost no option for roleplaying. Combine that with very little fluff (the main setting, Nentir Vale, had no sourcebooks), excessive retconning of lore, no playtesting, overwhelming amounts of skub, and it almost killed DND. This in turn led to the rise of Pathfinder, which is basically DND 3.75. I prefer 5e because the rules are very easy to grasp.

So how did the grid system nearly get rid of roleplaying in an RPG?
: Started watching Fairy Tale, and holy shit, there's like 300 episodes... I got to right at the end of the flute thing, not sure if will continue it until after a few other shorter anime since this will take a long ass time. Erza is really pretty though. I do like me a lady in armour. (Insert IronStylus joke here.)

: Not really liking the Ahri stories
>Current Ahri eventually grew a conscience and morals after siphoning human essense (which comes to her as memories) to feed her hunger. She doesn't want to be a monster. She wants to be more human. > >The difference is just that small detail. I feel that what's happening is that you're looking at every small detail and the moment a specific detail is changed, you immediately condemn it without trying to see how it could be interpreted and if it truly changes the character seriously. _"You only have to change a little to change everything."_ - Mark Rosewater. In the old stories, Ahri was an animal that happened upon magic. She was just following her instincts as an animal until her human instincts started to grow. As her awareness and intellect grew, she begun to realize her changing situation. In the new version, Ahri is an emo monster with too much self loathing and too little self control for my liking. >How do you think old Ahri would have handled it compared to current Ahri? Probably not with murder followed by self pity and weakness. >What would have been the difference in perspective or opinion from either of them? If I were to put it in color pie terms I'd put old Ahri as green animal turning into white/blue human in terms of personality, while the new Ahri is red/black. In other words they are diametrically opposed. >How would you handle it if you were to decide to do a story about Ahri's PERSONAL life and development. Not just her moving around and interacting, but something that showcases her in a very personal and most likely private state of affairs. I'd ask myself is it Ahri, is it interesting, and is it mechanically a good story? For me, the new stories fail on the first two aspects.

I think the worst SJWs are attracted to Overwatch and blizzard in general. Also, league players are more happy when new skins come out.

Boredom? Loss of talent? People mad riot isn't paying the pros or esports people? We know the USA is going to lose it all so why care?

Correct, a number of their flavors have too much air in them to technically be ice cream.

They might not know who it is yet and they don't want to ruin the surprise.

: Food that's impossible to order whilst sounding like an adult
I'd argue that adults ordering kids meals for themselves should be the most embarrassed, but they are too happy with their moment of nostalgia to care.
: Well gangplank's appearance was updated to reflect his lore. And I think Miss Fortune's appearance should too.
Gangplank got a bit of a VGU for the event, MF did not. MF's skin was just something the skin team had in the works to flesh out the event.
: Petition to make Captain Miss Fortune the default skin for Miss Fortune
I disagree. 1. League needs a few T&A champions for variety and there's plenty of other sensible by default options. 2. If you look at the majority of the skins, they seem to emphasize the fun, playful, or sexy aspects of MF, her current base is more in line with that theme. 3. I like the idea of a default sexy champ to dress up than to force a dressed up champ to slootify. For every skin. 4. I think that captain fortune looks worse in game 5. Captain fortune was presented as an alternative take on her, I don't think it should be promoted to her base because it was never meant to be. 6. Who says she didn't go back to her old ways after beating gankplank? She got her revenge (sort of) so she's back to her old self. 7. Boobs.

: Help me out a bit - what does 'gut her visuals' here refer to?
Jinxylord said in an Ask Riot that Caitlyn doesn't look like a proper sheriff so I can only assume that means she's getting a visual rework that completely changes her visual aesthetics.

Why does riot hate Caitlyn? I thought that she looks fine aside from maybe needing a slightly newer model. Why are you trying to gut her visuals when people like her?

Very end of the month. Probably around the last weekend.

1. Kill her at her camps. 2. Don't push your lane in unless you've killed the other laners. 3. Get a little HP and MR.

I dunno. Part of me wants to say during Obama's term when OWS happened as a manufactured attempt to copy the tea party.
Zypheit (NA)
: Caitlyn as a "Prim and Proper" sheriff.
I hate riot right now. Caitlyn looks fine and here riot is trying to screw her up. Sure it may not be a "sheriff" look, but that's who cait is and she's looked like that forever. I hope they just leave her overall looks alone.

I think the biggest problem with it and its kind is you have to invest so much time into it.

Start with Kill la Kill, then move on to fairy tail.

: Pretty much all the shadow isle's champions would look cool as dark star skins. {{champion:60}} {{champion:120}} {{champion:30}} would be amazing both visually, and their particles/themes would be epic (tangle the universe in a web/make constellations? Lead a galatic army? Blow up time and space?) Idk if dark star {{champion:57}} would look good due to his lame particles in general, but it'd probably still be better than victorious maokai.
I think I'd rather see them with pre-transformation skins/voices.
: Yeah even with the faculty Academy is down a bot lane. But who was that in the hallway?
Caitlin is in a skirt so it'd be easier to make her into an academy skin. Also School Nurse Sona/Soraka please. It's about time Soraka got another human skin.

The number 1 issue with bronze players is you can't really count on yourself or your teammates. Everyone is as bad as you are for everything. So if you can't count on yourself and you can't count on your teammates, what can you do?
: Ahri's newest lore good or bad?
In terms of direction is was a downgrade as far as I was concerned. I just liked what she was in the old lore better.

Unless it requires antibiotics. Diseases are becoming immune to them and we are soon going to be running out of ways to treat them.

No, fast laning is already in the works. I know someone that works for Comcast in their marketing division, and they're already having meetings over how much they can charge to not have YouTube, Netflix, and Twitch throttled and not have an absolute uprising.

What most people don't realize, is while free market might work for some things. When it's for a service that is monopolized, whether locally or otherwise, it only serves to be worse for everyone that isn't the company providing the service. They have no incentive to cut prices, because there's no one to compete with them. And THEY KNOW THIS. They already exploit this heavily.

Starving kids in (impoverished place) is a cover for the fact that mom failed at cooking.
: Thank You RITO for Ahri's story
I liked her old bio better. I liked her old self about the transformation from a fox to human (riot is now against transspeciesism), the desire to be more human and evolve into something better, and how she learned to embrace morality. This new one is relatively awful. 0/10.
: I always thought it was because BC also gives CDR (20%) so it may be more economic than Dominik in a non-Crit build for improvised anti-tank. But I was also wondering about Dominik vs Mortal Reminder. Seems that Reminder is getting more popular now...
I'd agree with the CDR thing, it's always good to have, but since we are talking about ashe there's other stuff going on. Her Q gets you to full stacks right away. So you don't have to worry about ramping up. This is where the hurricane synergy comes in. Then there's also the phage passive. Since Ashe is immobile, it works well with her passive in helping her kite.
: Is {{item:3036}} no longer the go to anti-tank weapon? I've noticed a rising popularity in {{item:3033}} as the go to anti tank even when there's very little healing.
With BC Ashe is going to have more HP and with the upcoming tank changes, tanks will have less total HP. While there are situations where you'd still want LDR, I think it's losing a bit of value.
