You really, really should not be taking a single thing Ahris says at face value. They make daily (or hourly) threads about Ahri while ignoring any single fact that runs contrary to their daily delusion. They repeatedly went to different Rioter's twitters and random Rioters on the boards and harassed them about Ahri *because while already good she was getting buffs, but not the exact specific buffs Ahris wanted*. https://i.imgur.com/3jauj1R.png[/img] Ahris is a 'special' case in that most of the community while terrible at balance does not repeatedly accost and harass Rioters over and over again, and most of the community is capable of changing their mind when confronted by mountains of evidence that they are wrong.

Iron is being added for the bottom tiers of Bronze. You are in the literal lowest tier right now (with a 28% winrate no less), so yes. You will very likely be placed in Iron next season.

The problem with old Sejuani was A) all her power was in her ult, and B) she did the exact same thing as basically every other magic damage tank jungler. If Gragas or Zac or Maokai was strong, you would literally never pick Sejuani because they all fulfilled the exact same role and had no niche. If Sejuani was strong, you would literally never pick the other junglers either. Post rework she has a reason to be picked besides "am I the best magic damage jungler in the game right now" because she has a niche of gaining effectiveness the more melees are on your team. It's not a major niche, but it means even if Zac or Gragas or Maokai is stronger, you might still pick Sejuani because your team has a lot of melees and she'll gain power from that.

: Why is Ivern getting his 10 damage shield buff halved on the PBE?
Probably because they also buffed his movement speed and W autoattack damage, so they don't want to go overboard with all the other buffs in conjunction with this one.

More words does not equal a non simple ability. Jhin's passive is an entire wall of text, and is pretty simple since it is just "he has 4 shots, crits deal less damage but give movement speed, and he gets AD instead of AS". Or Akali's Q, which is "do damage and slow at the edge of the skillshot. If near full energy, also heal. At max rank does more damage to minions + monsters". Both of these have significant amounts of text, but are not remotely hard to understand or mechanically complex abilities.

: Why does Riot advertise skins with drop-dead idiotic balance decisions?
How come you don't point out all their other changes? Why not complain they showcased a new Kai'sa, Ahri, and Evelynn skins, while all of those champions also got nerfs before their skin launched? Why not point out the vast majority of skins with no positive or negative changes for the champion before or after getting a skin? How come it's always "Riot is greedy and buffing champions so their skin sells more" even though that's factually wrong?

: Why was Aatrox removed for being "stat check"
I don't think you understand how 'statcheck' is used. It's used to refer to a champion that wins or loses every single engagement not on their mechanical skill or aptitude, but by how many stats that champion has. Aatrox's entire kit was boosting his stats, or letting him get in range to constantly autoattack with his stats. His wins and losses were almost entirely determined by whether he had more stats then his opponent. If he had more he won since his opponent cannot outdamage his healing, cannot burst him down through his tankiness and revive, cannot survive through his damage, and cannot escape through his gapcloser, CC, and range. If he had less he lost since he couldn't heal enough to be relevant, could not deal enough damage to be relevant, and did not have enough CC to escape or run away. Even if Aatrox played poorly he would win based on his stats anyway. Kai'sa on the other hand if she plays poorly will just straight up die, as she cannot afford to build heavy defense and self healing. Likewise, Kai'sa has the opportunity to actually mess up and lose engagements she could have otherwise won and on the flipside can actually outplay opponents to win engagements even though she has less stats or is behind.
: That's how Riot has been handling all the 'ruby' chromas lately... If you go through the chromas tab, pretty much every skin that has been given chromas lately has the red varient locked behind a bundle, and even if the other chromas are available for purchase after, the Ruby chroma is marked off as legacy and unavailable for purchase after the initial release. I'm not sure why specifically the red one is the one they chose to make exclusive. The earliest I remember this happening was back with the Lunar Revel skins for this year, where Ruby Lunar Guardian Warwick, Ruby Lunar Guardian Nasus, and Lunar Empress Lux were all exclusive to the chroma bundles. It's honestly really bs. This along with the new trend of every single skin getting an 'exclusive launch border' that tacks several hundred RP onto the cost of the skin just seem really scummy. Borders were cool when the were for special skins/events and meant something.

The launch borders are so people who want exclusives and whales still have something to get to show their 'specialness' to others without outright locking the main content forever. For OP, the "3035" bundle cost is including the cost of Dragon Trainer Tristana and requires you do not own the skin to begin with. The actual cost for the Chromas assuming you own Tristana and the Dragon Trainer skin is 1,479 for the 5 normal Chromas + exclusive Ruby chroma, or 6 chromas (1 of which is exclusive) for the price of 5.

It 100% is fair to look at overall. If the vast majority of games last between 20-35 minutes, then there's not much point to looking at that rare 1 hour game and basing a champion's 'strength' on their winrate at that extreme. Face it. Ahri is one of the safest champions in the game, with enough damage to assassinate and utility to stay relevant even if she fucks up badly and feeds. She requires extremely little skill and is frankly overpowered, and you are so incredibly blinded by your bias that you even advocate for **buffs** when she's currently at the *minimum* one of the top 3 midlaners in the game.

DoT champions are only at best mildly affected by said change though, as other runes work just as well and Aery functions just as well. > Windspeakers = Healers Aery/Guardian fulfill the exact same role, and do it better. > Courage of the Colossus = CC champs Aftershock is literally just a better Courage of the Colossus. Let's go over the other keystones you skipped also! We have Grasp of the Undying, which is a weaker version of current Grasp. We have Stoneborn Pact, which is now the minor rune Font of Life. And we have Warlord's Bloodlust, which is Fleet Footwork. If you may notice, every single "interesting playstyle" rune **still exists in the new system in a way blatantly obvious to anyone who spent more then half a second looking at the runes.** > > Notice how everything has a certain playstyle to it? If my champ has cc, I can play CotC, DFT, Fervor, Thunderlords, and Stormraiders and still be useful. This season, you want damage? Are you adc? PTA. Are you mage? Electrocute/Comet depending on if youre skillshot mage or melee mage like akali. Are you Bruiser? Conqueror. Are you Assassin? Dark Harvest. Are you tank? Grasp or comet if youre malph. You see how boring this is? If you see a malph going top lane with a conqueror, thatd be trolling. A malph with pta, predator, dark harvest, klepto, glacial, etc etc, youre going to wonder if hes trolling or not. If you saw a Malphite bring Fervor, Thunderlords, or Stormraiders you'd consider it trolling also. If you saw Renekton go **anything** other then Fervor of Battle, you'd consider it trolling. If you saw any non DoT mage/Karthus/Jhin take DFT you'd consider that trolling (and likewise any normal mage not taking Electrocute). How is this any different? > > Bring back diversity in this game. These new runes are literally the worst thing to happen to league. The 'new' runes are literally fucking better versions of the old keystone masteries. Did you ever stop to think that maybe the 3 hits to proc a lightning attack rune was close to the 3 hits to proc a lightning attack mastery? What about the "your attacks build up Energized stacks and at full stacks heal you + give some ms" rune and the "your attacks build up Energized stacks and at full stacks heal you" mastery? How about fucking Grasp still being named Grasp and having the exact same fucking effect except with a +hp stacking component added? Face it. The only 'loss' in the Runes Reforged system was DFT, and every single champion that lost out on it has many more then viable replacements instead of being pigeonholed into taking it every single game.
: The successes of the new system do not outweigh the massive failures it also brought. For example, they're impossible to balance properly. Most champions cannot use more than 2 keystones and even fewer can use keystones from different trees effectively. Additionally, previous runes actually encouraged customization. While there were staple runes for all champions, almost all champions could viably use other runes for varying playstyles and complimenting them. The only notable successes was removing a gate to ranked play and making runes fully available to everyone. Everything else has simply been a balance nightmare from day 1 and Riot knows this.

No, they aren't. I'd say calling them impossible to balance properly is incredibly shortsighted and ignorant, especially when the vast majority of runes are balanced and even the 'unbalanced ones' throughout all of Runes Reforged *have already been balanced with little exception*. > Most champions cannot use more than 2 keystones and even fewer can use keystones from different trees effectively. I'm going to take just the champions who have names starting with A for this, because it illustrates how wrong you are pretty easily. Aatrox: 2 viable keystones mid, 3 viable keystones top. All are in different trees. Ahri: 4 viable keystones, covering 3 different trees. Akali: 1 viable keystone mid, 3 viable keystones top. All are in different trees. Alistar: 2 viable keystones, both in the same tree. Amumu: 3 viable keystones, covering 2 different trees. Anivia: 4 viable keystones, covering 3 different trees. Annie: 4 viable keystones, covering 2 different trees. Ashe: 3 viable keystones, all in the same tree. Aurelion Sol: 2 viable keystones, covering 2 different trees. Azir: 3 viable keystones, covering 2 different trees. So already we have a whopping 2 (4 if you count mid akali but not top akali and mid aatrox but not top aatrox) champions with only 1-2 viable keystones, and only 2 champions 'locked' to a single tree. The only ones locked are a pure support tank, and a pure autoattack based adc. I think this illustrates how wrong your point is, what with most champions following this same pattern of having multiple viable keystones in different trees. > > Additionally, previous runes actually encouraged customization. While there were staple runes for all champions, almost all champions could viably use other runes for varying playstyles and complimenting them. You say this every thread, which amazes me because of how blatantly wrong it is and was. Previous runes were incredibly expensive, rune pages were incredibly expensive *and required*, and every champion had 2-4 rune pages which were identical to almost every other champion in that class. ADC's took AD reds, AS quints, MR blues, and then either Flat health or flat armor Yellows. The only decision or customization that wasn't blatantly wrong was in yellows, and that was swapping between health or armor. Going a mage? You took AP Quints, magic pen/hybrid pen reds, AP/MR/Scaling CDR blues, flat health/flat armor yellows. The only meaningful decision was between AP/Scaling cdr, as champ choice dictated the reds and matchup dictated yellows (and if it was a scary magic damage matchup, blues). There was no real customization, especially compared to Runes Reforged which allows you to do blatantly stupid shit still if you really want to 'break the meta' for your cool new playstyle of purposefully nerfing yourself. > > The only notable successes was removing a gate to ranked play and making runes fully available to everyone. Everything else has simply been a balance nightmare from day 1 and Riot knows this. Notable successes: lower barrier to entry. Significantly more actual choice (Conquerer vs PTA vs Grasp for Bruisers as an example). Less disguised trap choices (AD reds + AS quints vs AS reds and AD quints or AD yellows/blues for instance). More impactful choices that matter, and change how you play game to game. I eagerly await you telling me I'm wrong and old runes were *fantastic* and had such *meaningful, amazing customization and choice* because you had 27 choices you could pick the wrong stats for and fuck up instead of 6.
: What do you think of Urgot Jungle with predator?
You give up his lane bully strength in return for being a bad discount jungle champion. His clears are god awful because they are so reliant on his legs which have a 30 second cooldown early. His ganks are very mediocre since he has such large animation locks, moves slowly, and doesn't bring as much damage as other junglers. There's 0 reason to pick him jungle as he adds nothing to a team and is actively detrimental compared to a normal tank or damage jungler.
: Who is best girl GD?
Continuing on, more best girls Character: Nyarko-San Series: Nyarko-San: Another Crawling Chaos real talk I just want to share a lot of images of Nyarko because she's such an adorably eager noodle https://i.imgur.com/v82O5Zp.gif[/img] What else is there to say? She's a Nyarlathotep as a cute anime girl. She's cute, she's crazy, she has scary strength she uses to vivisect monsters with a crowbar. Really, there's nothing more to want out of a best girl. Besides, who can say no to this face? https://i.imgur.com/T7t8Bnl.gif[/img] Anyway. Without further ado, more pictorial proof of Nyarko-san's status as best girl https://i.imgur.com/7yoJjBk.gif[/img] https://i.imgur.com/y9OmtOD.png[/img] https://i.imgur.com/89Tnu03.jpg[/img] https://i.imgur.com/YCEzL51.gif[/img] https://i.imgur.com/EG3Ld8z.png[/img] https://i.imgur.com/58RZuT7.png[/img] https://i.imgur.com/0jifeVT.jpg[/img] Anyway stay safe ;3 https://i.imgur.com/mG5im2G.gif[/img]

Rerolling just gives a skin you do not already own AFAIK.

I am a game developer living in Ohio. As a disclaimer, I do not hate any moderators specifically. This is not meant as a insult to any of them, especially those 3. They are great additions to my friend circle and I love them all to death, but as a fallout of the drama surrounding an ambassador and other Boards volunteers is the main reason for my attempted suicide on September 8th. People have been harassing me on Discord for nearly a months, telling me to kill myself, that my ex girlfriends suicide should be an example, and that every friend would eventually turn on me. I know who is responsible, as it has lined up perfectly to one person every time and a few accomplices... > > The Boards moderators are clearly being dishonest about something. Its clear that theres a lot of drama. Just off the top of my head, one moderator was kicked from the team because they wanted followups on chickenwraps accused involvement and the continueing (to this day) harassment tied to a group he is involved with. The reason for kicking was changed multiple times, and the only defense they were given was that "if you want back into the program, we cant say what you did wrong because that would invalidate any evidence." They were drastically hurt by this. > > Ive never really spoken up about it, but I also see complaint sof 20 hour wait times on that discord, and hear horror stories of the ways a few select moderators spoil the bunch.

How much? I miss a joke and he goes off as if it's a crime along the lines of threatening murder. He has been known for starting harassment parties against me on several counts and gotten away with ALL of it. Evidence? I've got proof of several incidents spanning the past few years. Keyru chose to ignore it. EDIT: Here's one.

Keyru chose to ignore it. real talk you accuse everyone of harassing you every time you have one of your episodes, and that means anyone who points out problems, differences, or things you overlooked is considered a 'harasser' with 'severe bias'.
: Riot Has an F Rating with the Better Business Bureau for a Reason!
Isn't the BBB a blatant scam where companies have to pay them to get good rankings, and companies that don't pay get bad ratings? Not having a good rating from them is a good thing.

You are using the high elo champion main's winrate. Every single champion looks 'actually busted' if you go by that data.

If someone is waiting a year or two or five for a skin, they want that skin to be good and not a shitty recolor or minor model change.
