: Well, Draven in _particular_ is very good right now. But I'm pretty sure that's just because either he's too strong right now, or he's a strong counter to hypercarries. But, yeah. Most marksmen do suck ass right now. Cait is bottom of the barrel, Ezreal had to go to _jungle_ to still be relevant, and is still below 50%, Ashe is only really viable in pro play, Lucian had to go _mid_ to be relevant, and, just like Ezreal, is still below 50%, MF's in a bad spot, Sivir isn't doing that great, Varus kinda sucks right now, and Vayne's barely able to be considered a champion.
Twitch, Kog'Maw, Xayah, Tristana, are all great. Both Vayne and Jinx have a positive winrate. I mean, there are quite a few viable marksmen.

Usually assassin meta relied on snowballing hard early on so that tanks did not have enough items built to properly tank an assassin yet and would die just as easily.

: GUT VEIGAR ALREADY ENOUGH IS ENOUGH OF THIS BULLSHIT RIOT
Hahahahhaha someone's salty about their last game. Let's review your performance shall we? In the last 13 GAMES you have played, you have double digit numbers for your death count. Play safer, only trade when you know that you have the upper hand, you obviously did not abuse your advantage in lane (most mages can abuse Veigar pre-6, especially Syndra) and she can threaten a full 100-0 deletion with her ult just like Veigar. If he's broke, start playing him! I will throw my chips down that you will have AT LEAST 10 deaths in the game. He is very weak early on and is VERY easy to pick out and gank because he has low MS and no mobility at all.

Go look at some LS videos on how to come back from behind. When the enemy team is up 3k+ gold at 12 minutes, no, it's not. Especially when it's the ADC and assassins who have most of the gold. With most mid match ups right now, being behind means you can be dived under your turret from 100% with no room for outplay. This makes it impossible to do any sort of catch up and puts all reliance on your jungle, who is likely also very behind.
For the love of god stop playing Vel'koz and pick up a midlaner who can RESPOND to a tower dive if that's your issue (looking at Annie, Galio, Kassadin, or your pocket pick Ahri). If you're going to play a champion with strong poke and high gankability, then you better expect to be ganked while you poke away your enemy. Also, Vel'koz has good wave clear. If you're behind you should try to shove out a lane and roam to bot or top to help snowball other lanes. If an enemy team with an 4-0 lead will inevitably get a 3k gold lead in another 7 minutes, then you guys had to have made even more mistakes. That isn't just them capitalizing on their lead; that is them punishing your mistakes even further. If you prevent mistakes then their lead will stall and you can turn the game around in teamfights (where a well-timed Vel-koz ult could destroy a whole team). Also, time for you to take a break from ranked. You're tilted, just look at your op.gg performance for the last week on your main.

Rioter Comments
: Teleport changes brutal?
Potential midlane abuse of teleport also (think champions such as Veigar). Teleport and ignite are both popular spells across multiple lanes.
: He simply asked for blue buff. He didn't start raging at his team in chat when it wasn't given to him.
Well, when he didn't receive his buff, he immediately stopped helping his team and left to splitpush and die over and over. It's okay to ask for blue; it's not okay to troll your team if you don't get the blue buff.
: So, you want to ban someone for splitpushing? Because that's what he did, push a lane on his own.
Not quite - he was pushing (as a ChoGath, mind you) and would not back off until he died over and over.
: When you reach the top the only direction you can ever go is down. And going down for a while is not nessiarly a bad thing either. IF riot wants to make a game that last generations (which a moba style can do) it will have its ups and downs. Fads spike then disappear; if league can drop number one and then comes back, it will prove it self more than a fad. Also who cares about you tubers? Most are fakes and feed into the meme culture. They like to think they define what is popular when in reality they are just following the shiny thing like everyone else.
I feel that Dunkey was one of the few YouTubers who actually helped give life to the game of League of Legends. Although I agree with everything else you stated.

That's a Galia! I recall that it was an electrochemical cell that derives electrical energy from spontaneous redox reactions.

: You only need one good snare to get a few of them. It is easier if you aren't playing against a hyper-agile champion like Fizz. Besides, my main point is that it is on level with Teemo and Karthus OFA stupidity.
Yeah, there are definitely other champions that are on-par with the stupidity level with Teemo and Karthus for OFA (and Zyra is definitely OP), but if we just ban everyone that even *looks* kind-of OP then we just end up having a boring game mode that is watered down.

Dude, this requires the enemy team to be dumb in order to get perma-rooted. There are other OFA champions that can be abused to a far higher degree.

You need not reply with a "simple statement." In my mind, this seems more like a written retort. Just report her. Then she (instead of you) will be the one who gets banned.

Your comments seemed derogatory to me; you specifically criticize other players for their behavior and them being "toxic." You are taking #2 out of context; for example: "Fuck I missed that ult" or "Damnit we lost that dragon" are both acceptable uses of "strong" language, because it simply emphasizes the event (losing the dragon/missing the ult) You are not emphasizing an event, you are exacerbating a toxic situation.

Was a huge Heimer fan for the longest time ever (season 3-4). I mean, I was a little nerdy but I enjoyed just dropping down turrets and wrecking noobs who just walked right through my turrets. Over time I fell in love with a few other champions... Shaco and Veigar.

Rioter Comments
: I can see League trying to shift away from the image it started with, especially with the release of Taliyah. (Although, I really feel like they were just trying to meet a quota, therefore she was never going to be good.) When was the last Champion released with a bust exposed being the central identity of the character? (Think Elise.) Girls do enjoy gaming, especially app gaming. My sister, girlfriend, female cousins, and girlfriend enjoy GTA 5 a lot, and there's little to no issue with misogyny there. And that really surprises me that League is worse than GTA 5 with this regard.
It's not necessarily images of the females portrayed in a game that indicate that League is inhospitable for women, but rather, the gameplay style and intensity of the game that really indicate whom its geared for. GTA5 is much different than League on this regard. For example, a FPS game versus a racing game will attract different kinds of people. I believe that mobas in general will attract a more intense gaming community (since it requires so much dedication to really enjoy the benefits of the game). Some girls enjoy intense gaming, but a majority seem to be male. Also BTW I would stick to only having one girlfriend. Two might be excess.
: Is League of Legends an inhospitable place for Women?
The entire gaming community has more or less been inhospitable for women. You can tell simply by the gender that the games are tailored for (including League). I don't know if it's a social stigma or mores, or if girls *in general* don't enjoy gaming as much, or if it's simply because of the gaming community environment.

: Can riot please fix shacos late game
Shaco has one of the most incredible early-game jungle advantages; and he is still quite useful into the later stages of the game (objective control steals, split-pushing). His biggest weakness has generally been team-fighting, which usually occurs at the later stages of the game. But any good Shaco player would know how to exploit Shaco's strengths (by forcing enemy teams to stop backdoors, inhibitor pushes, etc). Or, better yet, a good Shaco would help snowball all of his allies' lanes so that there is no comeback mechanic for the enemy team to catch up in the lategame, or force an early victory through his sheer tremendous potential from the early game. Watch Shaclone for tips if you're struggling to find use for Shaco in the late game.
