: Can Yasuo Jungle?
He can't because his ganks are knockup reliant and he has no mobility for pre6 ganks. With a premade and carefully assembled comp you could make it viable though.
: Whats a piece of advice that sounds bad but is really good?

I lose lane a lot now, and typically in the first 10 minutes of the game my lane is decided and when I'm on the losing end I immediately think the game is over, and I keep thinking about that first death and I concentrate on it so hard that I can't play the rest of the game effectively without being drastically upset about the first death. I take this game very seriously so for someone that doesn't it would sound ridiculous. I know everyone has felt that way at least once. Imagine feeling that every single game for 100 games in a row and each time it felt worse and worse until you couldn't stop feeling that way. It's an irrational thought. It turned into a habitual way of thinking after I did it so many times. Now, when I play, I am so afraid of losing my lane that I end up losing my lane and then I tilt so hard that I can't play the rest of the match without making a ton of mistakes. I accidentally taught myself to be permanently on tilt, and I can't play at all when I'm upset. I don't know how other people experience tilt, but for me, I drown myself in shame and make a mountain out of a mole hill.

we also tend to think we can switch to be a one trick pony on a different champion only to realize we are truly just shit at the game

: Why do Lux stat pages always show 20% CDR builds?
Because cdr is overrated on champions like lux, ahri, and leblanc. It should be treated as a stat like AP, where there's no cap, but having it still helps. You don't NEED 40% cdr. It's overrated.
Divodius (NA)
: Riot should make another game.
Or they could add a new game mode, and a new way to play league by incorporating a co op vs ai game mode where team comps still matter but in a PvE environment with increasing difficulty as the game progresses and a separate runes and masteries system designated specifically for that game mode.
: Champions to counter assassins?
Tanks counter assassins. The tank ekko build is a suggestion. Sterak's gage is an item that you might want to get depending on who you're playing. Additionally Zed's ult completely denies all burst while he bursts you, so he's guaranteed to get his burst off before you, making him more effective against other assassins in the mid lane. Kassadin counters pretty much all AP assassins once he hits 6 because of his passive.

: How Does Skill Flash Combo Work?
When you cast E there's a blue bar that shows up briefly showing that you're casting Charm, like a really really short channel. You press E and then flash before the bar finishes and Ahri will immediately E after the flash without the bar.
: Which champion could i build nearly 100 percent armor penetration on?
If you're going to run a build like that just do it on Vi since she has 20% armor penetration at all ranks on her W.

Making it a summoner spell would be overpowered and pretty much everyone would take it, and this would drastically change the game and literally everyone would complain that this game is no longer balanced because there are wards in every single bush. Junglers would become obsolete at higher elo and we'd resort to having a second support player top. Not everyone wants health, though. Unless you are a meta support like Braum, Alistar or Leona
Supports need health more than any other role no matter what champion you're playing. As a support, you're going to get behind no matter what. And everyone knows that you build tanky items when you're behind. If you don't feel that buying sightstone isn't a satisfying buy, then you're not using it correctly or you just suck at support. You can rush a frost queen's claim into rabadon's deathcap without buying a sighstone and your damage will be very lacking regardless because you're underleveled and extremely behind on gold, and you spent all that gold on damage items instead of utility items like you're supposed to. If you want to deal more damage then don't play support. Supports are valuable for their cc and utility, not damage. My advice is to stop playing leblanc/brand support and play an actual support like nami or janna.

: Upvoted, and bumping. If Riot is willing to invest the time to create a native client for OS X then I would think they would want to maintain it to keep the player-base they've established. I've had no issues until this patch with FPS, but now teamfights are unplayable even with my display settings on the lowest they can go (very low) and sound disabled. Simply acknowledging the problem would go a long way to assure us weary mac users that we've not been forgotten.
I want to verify that graphic settings are completely unrelated to the issue. I've lowered my graphics all to the lowest setting (I play on the highest setting normally) and there was literally no difference.

: My least favorite part about him (and others that this play-them-to-beat-them strategy applies to) is that you have to put in so much work JUST to stand a chance at beating them in a game. Why should I have to go and get good at Yasuo to fight him in lane when the same isn't required for him to succeed?
Yasuo is a very risky pick, a lot like Riven. He's not as hard as Riven but he's definitely not easy to play and if you make one mistake it's all over. He's one of the harder champions to play. The reason you think he's easy is because you've never played him in ranked.
: Yasuo makes me want to uninstall.
He's good at fighting ranged champions. Chances are you're playing a ranged champion every time he beats you, and that can feel very oppressing when he's trying really hard to get in melee range and you're trying really hard to get away from him. Yasuo is one of the few champions in the game that you have to seriously play for yourself in order to understand how to beat him.

: Two week ban ended, No more rewards question.
You're not a bad person because you were banned on fucking league of legends. The behavioral system in this game is a joke. Have you ever been to prison? Stolen from anyone? Cheated on your girlfriend? Killed someone? Abused someone? If you answer no to the previous set of questions then you're not a bad person. They don't punish you based on what kind of person you are, they punish you based on their own bias regardless of real, actual, genuine, mature, and reasonable moral standings. Example: "Shut the fuck up." = instant ban. "I just hit my cat and I'm going to kill my parents so I can take their social security checks." = impossible to get banned for.

To make up for that, Shyvana is one of the best duelists in the game. Volibear can't 1v1 a Shyvana that's even with him and even a Shyvana that's a little bit behind him, but he is substantially better at killing the enemy carries in teamfights. Also your E is the bane of Shyvana. A lot of Volis don't realize that your E almost completely makes her useless, because if she is not within auto attack range she literally cannot do any damage at all. It makes her W useless and makes her useless until her W is back up unless your team is stupid and doesn't kite her. Every time I'm against a good Voli as Shyvana, I dread the moment he decides to use E on me because it really is a counter to Shyvana. > > What you need to do is E Shyvana and then completely ignore her and go for the enemy carries. During the early game, all you have to do is predict where she is going to gank. Like I said, his E makes her useless. If you are there when she ganks, you are completely disabling her from doing anything. She won't be able to get ANY damage off at all. Voli is one of the best champions in the game for counter ganking Shyvana. > > Hope this helps. Holy shit I never knew Voli's E was that good against her in that respect. Thanks for the tips. Although, if she never ganks, should I try and counter jungle? Or maybe just get Trackers knife to help get vision for counterganks? Unfortunately for me in this specific game, their team comp consisted of Jinx, Annie, and Wukong. Basically a war on two fronts. I couldn't both peel and engage Jinx successfully and my team just sucked compared to them. I guess from reading the other comments, the game was an inevitable loss.
There's really no point in counter jungling. I average getting my devourer item between 7 and 9 minutes and have it fully stacked by 14 to 16 minutes. She clears too fast for Voli but Voli is a super early game jungler and early game junglers counter Shyvana (Nidalee is the hardest counter, but a good Lee Sin, Evelynn, Elise are extremely good against her). If your score is 2/0/4 at 6 minutes, she's in trouble, because there's really nothing she can do to stop you at that point and the game is getting out of control for her before she's even had a say in it and that's exactly what she doesn't want. Whenever I play Shyvana i always have to gamble that the enemy jungler just simply won't do well when he ganks because there's really nothing I can do to stop him until I hit level 6 and even then I'm just going to be farming a lot. If you're playing against a decent Shyvana she'll always do the Valkrin super clear, meaning she'll take krugs, raptors, wolves, gromp, back, and then do a full clear. A cheesy way to get a kill early is to go to her gromp at around 2:30. I always time what time I kill gromp (or krugs depending on the side) before my first back and it's usually 2:50 to 2:58 and then I instantly back, however I'm always REALLY low. If you wait in the blue buff bush at 2:30, wait for me to get low with gromp and rolling thunder and some auto attacks, possibly a flash would kill me instantly for a cheesy first blood. It's never happened to me, but anyone could easily do it and a good shyvana will run exhaust instead of flash so you have to keep that in mind because you are guaranteed to burn her flash or exhaust this way. I really hope that people don't start figuring this out and doing this to me though, probably shouldn't even post this tbh Another thing is that once Shyvana finishes her 2nd clear she will almost always try to gank top, because she'll be about 3/4s of the exp needed to reach level 6 and she's hoping she can get a quick first blood for level 6. If your top lane is pushed in and she can't gank she'll most likely go for scuttle or try to counter jungle your top side or gank mid. You are very unlikely to see her bot so you can expect her to gank top or mid at around that time. I think it's somewhere around the 5 minute mark. Don't get tracker's knife. Just buy vision wards, it might be a good idea to hold off on the oracle alteration as well. The most important thing is to hold your E because if you don't hit her with it she'll most likely kill you or your laner. Also never use rolling thunder on Shyvana, it's a waste. Also if she never ganks, then just gank more. She's gonna want you to try and counter jungle her because you're ultimately wasting your time and not ganking, giving her more breathing room to farm and not worry about you. You'll ultimately lose exp walking to her jungle and back if you just somehow happen to catch her jungle camps uncleared, but most of the time she'll have cleared it long before you get there. To keep it simple, play for the early game as hard as you can because she can't do anything about it. That'll win you the game, unless your ganks aren't successful. I should also point out that you're better off giving your laners the kill especially against Shyvana because she will beat you no matter how fed you are because you're not a damage dealer. If your team gets to the point where they can kill Shyvana in 5 seconds, you won. That's what you want to have happen as Volibear.

: My Problem with Shyvana
I'm a Shyvana main and I've also played quite a bit of Voli so here's my input. The strength that Voli has over Shyvana is CC. To make up for that, Shyvana is one of the best duelists in the game. Volibear can't 1v1 a Shyvana that's even with him and even a Shyvana that's a little bit behind him, but he is substantially better at killing the enemy carries in teamfights. Also your E is the bane of Shyvana. A lot of Volis don't realize that your E almost completely makes her useless, because if she is not within auto attack range she literally cannot do any damage at all.

: Rage Fuking blade....
rageblade is a core item on teemo and he's ap. Rageblade isn't the problem, it's the champion. Also it's really cost inefficient when it's not fully stacked. When you see that the enemy champion has rageblade all you have to do is play around it. Don't fight them if they have it stacked, don't fight them in sustained fights, buy a randuin's or frozen heart for late game.
