: Why didn't Captain Marvel just put on the Infinity Gauntlet and use it?
I'm thinking because Marvel decided which ending they wanted (the one they went with), so that means it would be impossible for Captain Marvel to be the one to use it from a practical standpoint. A secondary reason is she hadn't earned the right to be the big hero of the movie (hers was average at best) and it would have come off as cheap deus ex machina. Finally, this movie was pretty much the end of 4 phases and 10 years of the MCU, the only real options they had were Iron Man, Cap, or Thor had to be the big hero of the movie. In a way it's a shame because killing off Captain Marvel would have let them reboot the character with another actress.
: Make frozen gauntlet melee only please?
It's a good idea considering riot won't rework ez so he doesn't keep breaking every item in the game.
RDat (NA)
: That clears the doubt
Is it because someone posted [a sensible request](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/oQETVdLH-make-frozen-gauntlet-melee-only-please) about balance?
: spellshield? basically a free edge of night on demand
She's had that ability forever though.

Irelia kept her Q but I feel like everything else is worse as of now. As for akali, I felt like CT tried to keep the spirit of the champ but a modernized form of her old kit seems like it is worse for the game. Maybe all he should have done was change the E.
Rioter Comments
: If you're playing Darius you're asking to get poked and bullied. You know you're picking a slow immobile champion with very short range abilities, and somehow champions like Kennen are at fault, because they counter Darius? I get the mentality of League players. Everyone wants their favourite champion to be the strongest and everything else to be weak and useless. That's why Hashinshin throws a tantrum every time something that's not a melee fighter beats him. But tell me, if every champion had the same skill and attacxk ranges for the purpose of balance, how diverse would the game be? I welcome every and any "non traditional" lane pick, because that's what keeps the game diverse. I'd rather lane against a Swain/Ryze bot lane than the typical ADC/Heal slave every game. I want to be left surprised by what the enemy picks and how they play instead of knowing what i'll fight based on the current trend and enforced META. Also, the pro play scene is a minority and Riot should not balance around them. Too many champions have been handicapped because of the LCS and its wicked ways.

This is why you need to be careful about who you pick when you pick before the other guy in your lane. One of your main champs has to be someone who you can blind pick into any match up. > I get the mentality of League players. Everyone wants their favourite champion to be the strongest and everything else to be weak and useless. I actually blame riot for this. They are designing more and more champs to be one-tricked but one tricking takes a lot of games on the part of the player. In order to make that idea work in the game, riot has to make it so every champ has an avenue of counterplay for any other champ they might lane against just to avoid hard counters. The problem in practice is I think riot has been forgetting counterplay or are creating champs that deny counterplay. _stare . . . _ {{champion:157}}
PekiCodex (EUW)
: Do YOU support non-meta strategies?
In normals sure. In ranked if I'm warned before I pick, I'm fine at best and I'll tolerate it at worse unless the NPCrson is obviously trolling because they didn't get their lane or someone banned their main. If I'm not warned before I pick I'll try to adapt even if I'm not happy unless someone is trolling. I once had to start bot alone as {{champion:37}} after a duo announced they were going to double jungle after I made the pick. That was stressful.
: Here is was Nubric has to say on the manner.
Well at least he can defend most of his actions. I'm not sure why he decided to pick teemo to support mid though and why didn't he help top because ryze got fed off of neeko.

They don’t even know about her having a low pick rate and most people who playing her are her main or OTP. Seriously if Sona mains abandon her or her popular would be as high as thresh, then her win rate would drop below 50%
I just looked up sona and she's the 46th most popular champ in the game. None of the sites I looked at had her in the top 10 most popular supports. Also, according to op.gg she only really gets a good winrate if games go after 25 minutes. Before then she's only got a 46% win rate.
Thilmer (EUW)
: Sona needs a REAL rework. I remember when they anounced a rework for her,,, and they basically changed nothing in her whole kit. By the way, I have mastery 7 with Sona, but in season 8 I basically don't knwo how to play her because of the new runes, and I basically can't win a game with her, so I had to stop playing her completely. That's sad.
: I'm with banning the guy He deserved a ban imo and I won't change that opinion He made his adc lane 1v2 even if it worked , that's not off meta , that's trolling Tho , NB3 should have got banned as well , which is why it isn't fair

Just another reason not to give riot my money: they'll turn around and give that money to toxic players who use friends at riot to get people banned and the rioters who do that stuff.
: New shit has come to light
Is this about how nightblue got someone banned?
: "better nerf irelia"
This was obviously the main point of the rework: to make a champ that has to be constantly nerfed.
Xavanic (NA)
: tbh i don't like qiyana at all, kit design, character design, personality design, their all rubbish
I'm fine with her visual design and I don't really care about her personality because riot changes so much it's hard for me to get invested in champs anymore. Still, I wish riot hadn't wasted this champ's potential.
: The hypocrisy of boards as its best
He'll get nerfed in the next patch and probably the one after that. Riot just released him a little too strong.
: Riot under investigation?
Does anyone remember when riot gender segregated a panel at PAX and people got mad over it? Pepperridge farms and I remember.
Rioter Comments
: California is investigating Riot for gender discrimination.
Kotaku has exactly one decent journalist and that's Jason Schrier. Also, it's pretty easy to click on the link if you've got a decent ad-blocker. They have it out for Riot for some reason beyond me and it's hard for me to see anything posted by them on the subject as anything other than as witchhunt propaganda.
: Story behind your league names?
Didn't know anything about LOL when I signed up so I just used a name I've been using for my female characters in MMOs since EVE. I made up the name from 2 anime characters.
: If a class of champs is being picked in over 90% of pro games by both sides that class is op.
KazKaz (OCE)
: Yeah, making her play like a zoner would be infinitely more interesting than her just being a Q dash bot.
I think that was one of the real problems with the rework; they decided to keep her old Q very early on and they had to build her around having it. Then they added that weird defensive poke skill and a worse stun than before. I'm not really sure what they were going for with those. Her Q and Ult say diver but then they give her a poke that roots her. I don't see why they put that on a diver how needs to be a little more mobile. Then there's that stun that they made because old irelia had a stun so the new one does too? A zoner would have been fine. A dedicated diver would have been fine. A ranged champ that fit their planned aesthetics would have been fine. Right now though her kit is just weird. It's like they threw on whatever random thing and keep what stuck.
: why would riot games reveal a new champion without releasing the rework for mordi yet?
My thoughts are that they were both finished around the same time. But on the other side of the coin, I doubt we are going to see any more new champions or reworks until the season is over.
: I really like how melee champions all have 175 or less base range and noone has 200
I'm partly of the opinion that if riot really wanted to do her psychic blades things right, they should have made her a full on ranged champ and moved her to mid. So it could have been worse.
: You just proved my point further. The job of the support is to KEEP THE ADC ALIVE, not carry the entire lane and outdamage the enemy, you're a helper, not a carry. The adc should be doing the stomping with the help of the support, not the opposite.
> [{quoted}](name=RespectfuIRobbie,realm=EUW,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=vvTmT1rX,comment-id=000100000000,timestamp=2019-06-08T18:40:36.755+0000) > > You just proved my point further. > > The job of the support is to KEEP THE ADC ALIVE, not carry the entire lane and outdamage the enemy, you're a helper, not a carry. > > The adc should be doing the stomping with the help of the support, not the opposite. You don't play ADC very much do you? The first goal of the ADC is to get fed off of CS. ADC trading only happens when it is smart to do it. Most trades in the bot lane are started by the support who doesn't have to worry about CSing.
: What annoys me the most is that Mage supports like Lux and Zyra can LITERALLY solo the entire lane even if the ADC is complete braindead. More often than not I've seen a god awful ADC get through the laning phase just because a mage support *existed* in their lane, allowing them to escape every mistake they'd commit while out damaging me and my adc every time because AP items are ~~broken garbage~~ very reliable.
Typically mage supports don't get much in the way of items during laning. {{item:1052}} isn't that broken.

Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: June 7
Meddler, riot's recent announcement on establishing balancing based on win rates left me with two questions. First is what are you going to do about champs like LeBlanc who typically have to have been left in a low win rate? Second, where does counterplay in a kit's design and the lack thereof fit into all this?
: Top lane Tahm Kench has a lane kill rate exceeding 60% in 47 out of 50 match ups.
I'd suggest riot nerf his grey health until a rework which removes the mechanic and replaces it with a 2 second shield.
: Yeah, it might breathe some life into the game again, or the opposite with so much happening
Rioter Comments
: Stop "balancing" ARAM
I think the best way to fix ARAM is add some melee only defensive and bruiser items. That should help a little.
Görgoroth (EUNE)
: Empress of the Elements Qiyana. New champion teaser/
: So I have been winning a lot in the jungle. What am I doing right/wrong?
Why are you building IE on jungle garen? Zed isn't my first choice for an AD jungle assassin. Don't build PD on jungle teemo, if you want to go on hit, you want hurricane and frankly you probably should have gone bloodrazor>nashors>hurricane>gunblade/rageblade then the other if you are going hybrid. Looks like you are having a lot of games where one of your laners is getting fed and carries. I'd suggest to keep doing that if you were ganking for them. You are playing a lot of Yi and he's pretty easy so that's helping things out.
: This is also basically the same what Kalista's W does for a passive. We already have that kind of mechanic on an ADC. But calling it backstab if you are an archer is kinda weird, especially if you stay at range from the enemy.
You are right that we have that mechanic, but I was just tying to think of something a lot of people would consider thief-like. As for the name, while it sounds weird, I think it's something that people will understand and helps convey the idea of thief/rogue to people. I also think that riot could differentiate it from Kalista in that this champ doesn't have a partner and wouldn't get all the extra benefits.
Zahtar (EUW)
: The League needs another archer.
I'm thinking that if riot wanted to do a thief/rouge archer they'd probably have to steal Leona's passive. That's because to the PnP crowd the rogue gets access to extra damage when attacking someone who is engaging with another PC or NPC. The easiest way to pull that off is to just take leona's passive, call it backstab, and make the rouge kinda dependent on casting skills. You mark an enemy champ, and if another ally attacks them the backstab mark is consumed and they take damage.
Vacus (NA)
: There is exactly one good reason to buy an early access game; to support the developer. You need to think of it like a kickstarter pledge or like a donation to a patreon or something. You are giving them money. You may or may not get something in return. If you believe that they are acting in good faith and are doing a thing that you want, donate some money to them. If you just want the game and don't care about them or what they're up to, don't buy early access.

Yeah, this is just about the only reason I'll get an early access game and even then I won't if it's from a AAA developer or publisher.
Spotty (NA)
: why do people buy early access games?
Are we talking about a reliable indie developer that needs money to finish the game or a AAA dev who is trying to milk fans as soon as possible? One game I got in early access was space engineers and that's because I saw enough videos on it on youtube to make me think it was a rough but decent game at the time. They were supporting the game with a lot of updates at the time so it seemed like they going to finish it if they could (which they did). I can't remember the name but I think there were several early access titles that were fairly well polished when they were released. Darkest Dungeon might have been one of them.
Moody P (NA)
: "I am counterpicked but I'm playing safe and letting him push. Surely my jungler will help me soon"
Why would a jungler help top by default? Mid/bot are so much more important unless there's a top champ who can take over the game like a farmed up nasus. Also, is the counterpick a good champ at tower diving? If so you are kinda screwed.
Nhika (NA)
: She's still pretty slow as a mid laner though. It's why Malz on paper is strong, but in actual team fights he's god awful.
If you want to push and roam, yes she is slow. If you want a champion that can use mobility to make aggressive plays or dodge stuff, that's her big weakness. Also, I don't know what you are talking about for malz being awful. He's at a 53% win rate ATM making him one of the best champs right now.
