Yasuo probably being the hardest of the match up since he can dash out of your wall and he's hard to stick too. Nasus will lose vs new Yorick if he doesn't prioritize his Maiden... Even if Nasus wins the trade Nasus is an all in champion, if he doesn't kill Yorick or the Maiden all you have to do is recall and heal your maiden back up and fight Nasus again when you come back. Vayne is more of a skill match up but if she gets caught by E and trapped with ur ult up she's dead.
: Yorick buffs kinda OP
The problem with Yorick is that he has a much bigger window of weakness than power. Without maiden or ghouls he is weak, with them he is strong. In order to really balance him he needs a REAL passive. His currently passive is just an explanation of his Last Rites mechanic. With the proper Ult management with the Maiden staying tethered to Yorick, you can keep your ult almost indefinitely and have massive lane and global pressure if you TP or roam. Low Elo players got wrecked before the last Yorick nerf, and this Yorick is even stronger once he hits level 6. > [{quoted}](name=Glîtchy,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=h7dYplRU,comment-id=0000,timestamp=2019-01-24T16:30:52.620+0000) > > If garen gets true damage because of the villain passive and super regeneration, then Yorick keeps his ult with him, we need something to hardcore counter the cheesing champ. Garen is a single dimensional champion, his kit is dated and he has no control over who the villain is.. His contributions to team fights aren't that great, and unless he stomps lane he's pretty useless as the game goes on.

Moody P (NA)
: Revamping Yorick's old passive would help balance him across ELOs
He either needs a real passive or his ghouls need to have a serious buff. I know he was nerfed some patches ago because he stomped low elo play, but since that nerf his win rates took a huge hit. Yorick should be powerful when he has his pets up.... He has a huge window of weakness if his ult isn't up or if he doesn't have graves ready, so it only makes sense for balancing sake that when he achieves his window of power he needs to be worth respecting and very strong. His ult and ghouls can be gone in a matter of seconds, and then he's back to being weak again while he preps graves or waits for his ult to go off cool down.
: What is, in your opinion, the worst designed champion in this game?
Champions that have very little outplay potential are poorly designed. Zoe is probably the most annoying for me. Whens he ults but gets hit with hard CC she shouldn't go back to her original location, but she does plenty of other abilities negate a champions ult like CC and Zoe should be no different.

: Alleged Reasons for Ban (China)
Because they don't like freedom of expression, which is the human spirit.
Myrmiron (EUW)
: Things your game cannot have in China
The Chinese government sucks, denying free expression through threats of violence or force is the denial of human integrity and spirit.
: China banned league???
Well this is good news! Maybe all that 4000 damage in 2 seconds bull shit will disappear now.
: Are you serious with these Nasus buffs?
I don't think people realize just how many cannon minions you'll miss as playing Nasus during laning phase. You think ya boy Darius or Pantheon is just gonna let you walk up and Q a cannon for free? Better be ready to take a lot of damage, or just be happy you can get the gold by grabbing it with E and missing the stacks.

Udyr is fine but in the hands of a capable player you gotta respect him.

: Riot's philosophy finally turned the game into dogshit after so much years
It's sad. I might officially be walking away from the game. As a top laner I'm even more frustrated. When you get behind in lane you build straight tank and you could still be a productive and useful player in the team by soaking damage and engaging. Now it's no longer possible. With conqueror and dh with adaptive offensive stats you can't fall behind and go tank cus defense stats suck and it turns the game from a 5v5 into a 5v4 no to mention a fed top laner you have to deal with. I don't know why I always get excited around pre-season because I feel like things will get better but they never get better. Game just gets worse and worse. Your best defense is now a better offense.
: This "League of Dark Harvest" meta is just like the "League of Thunderlords" but worse.
When two or more people proc it on you at once your basically dead. Imagine 3, 4 or even 5 people procing it on you, the amount of burst your getting is disgusting. Unlike electrocute where you have to make 3 consecutive attacks all you need is 50% or lower hp, which means literally anyone can use it to an even fuller effect. It scales infinite, and you get a stack each time you proc it plus you can reduce its cool down upon takedown or assists. In team fights if you have 3 or more on your team you could potentially chain the harvests toghether leading to an absurd amount of burst damage than you iu can just keep reapplying once shit dies. That's a recipe for staight damage cluster fuck.
: Revert Dark Harvest.
Everyone takes Dark Harvest because it's broken. The CD resetting after take downs and assists is also absurd. Dark Harvest doesn't need to be reverted, it needs to be reworked completely. It's impossible to balance.
Akumu (NA)
: This entire Preseason is a massive failure.
In the past few ranked games I've played seems like 6 or more people are taking Dark Harvest, in my last two games don't remember which but 8 people took dark harvest. The damage was absolutely disgusting. Hell even Supports are even taking it and getting kills with it pretty easily. Also the Turret plating sounds like a cool mechanic but the way it's implemented along with the bounty system makes the game snowbally back and fourth. The idea of the new plated turret just doesn't make sense. They say it rewards the aggressive laner with gold, but also serves as a buffer for those who want to scale up and stay in the laning phase longer farming under tower.... The former is supreme and the latter is non existent. Tower AI is still stupid AF and the person who is aggressive not only wins the lane phase but they get ungodly amounts of gold while you lag behind and get jack shit. The outter turret pre 14 minutes still sucks and turns into a free cash credit advance for the person who wins lane phase. Game is actually so fucking stupid right now it makes me sick. It just gets worse and worse. Getting close to the point of officially moving on, I mean I know it's pre-season but I don't expect anything more or less from Riot at this point -- they always fuck it up. EDIT - Until changes are made, the meta is going to shift to everyone taking Demolish and champions with high wave clear and utility are going to be the best picks.
: There's no more hope for Riot
The only thing that will wake them up is if everyone stopped buying their crap.
: Games feel like they end faster now
Rip my favv and main champ...... Rip Nasus... Rip my Shurima... You were such a good boy and will never be forgotten.
: I thought turret plating would be a shield that you had to kill before the tower's real HP showed up
There needs to be a requirement for balance team positions.... You are required to play ranked solo queue for at least 15 games a week because then and only then will you see how much of a shit show this game is.
: Guys,relax,it's preseason,they always fix their mistakes on preseason time!
: Should Towers Be More THREATENING?
Towers are fortifications and should be stronger and harder to take, but the rewards should be better for securing them to balance the risk vs reward. Tower shots and AI could be improved too. But Riot has made it clear that they want the game to last no less than 14 minutes but no greater than 20.
: Riot bias to early game?
They are biased towards scaling.
: This whole time I thought turrets were getting buffed
Riot really wants the games to end in 15-20mins.
: The defense rune stat path has another "fake" choice, as usual with health runes
: This whole time I thought turrets were getting buffed
Seems like after 14 mins and you lose plating the first turret dies faster than what it did before.
: The defense rune stat path has another "fake" choice, as usual with health runes
A flat hp boost would be better, or increase the scaling. With the old rune system you could take health seals and get like 72 flat hp? Or take scaling and get 212 or something?

: Unpopular opinion: Neeko’s character feels kinda offensive.
Political correctness is offensive and is the death of rational human thinking.
: Champion Revealed: Neeko, The Curious Chameleon
This honestly looks like another stupid champion creation that will have no counter play yet again and will only add more toxicity to the league. League gets more toxic when you have flat out retarded champion designs like this that lead to unwarranted frustrations.
: Gut feeling: It'll be too weak and it'll get reduced again to probably around a 3.5-3 second channel. Probably for the best. No more free zoning TPs every two minutes.

No more free zoning TPs every two minutes. You know the cool down is longer than 2mins right?
: Ezreal this Pre-Season
I think the whole reason for them changing his Ult is so that he can be actually useful in a team fight though. It's going to do 600 damage at rank 3, it's all magic damage and its scales off his bonus AD and AP. Ez is a meh champ but these changes we see so far in pre-season will make him better IMO.

: Diablo Immortal is a great example of a gaming company disaster.
Diablo 2 was the best, still is the best. Mobile games are stuff you play to burn the time. Burn time at work, while in a line waiting for food, or in the back seat of a car... People don't want to play Diablo to "burn" time or on a mobile device for that matter... The market isn't there but Blizzard seems to e told otherwise.

: Preseason
Keep playing ranked so your MMR stays steady. Last year I took a break during pre-season and placed like Silver 5 because I didn't play in months and got like ape teammates for 8 of my placement games.
: Is Sion even Beatable?
Honestly Sion is kind of annoying since the new Inting strat came out, because even if you know how to shut him down he's literally going to be worth less and less gold which makes him almost valueless. But you still have to send your resources to him because he will just keep smashing towers, while getting a lot of CS so he actually ends up getting items even though he's probably not getting kills. I seen a Sion mid not too long ago and he literally rammed it down mid the entire game, died like 16 times but he took the middle inhib at like 17 mins in. Other shit was going on around the map and we would have to constantly respond to him brainlessly shoving mid. The value he gave us for kills was literally less than a cannon minion but if we didn't stop him he was going to take every tower we had; and even though he was inting hardcore he had 3 completed items at 20 mins so he was actually kinda hard to kill.

Don't expect anything from your teammates, it'll just make you more pissed off.
: Why Caitlyn is always nerfed when she is pratically one of the worst marksman in the game ?
What do you expect from Riots balance squad? I mean we literally see them nerf champions with 40% SoloQ winrates because some pro is able to maximize that champs potential only due to being in active communication with 4 other guys the entire match, otherwise this shit isn't possible and the champion is just MEH and will be dumspter tier. Secondly Caitlyn doesn't make Riot munnies, so she will stay in the dumpster. Unlike champions like Jhin who literally run around with like 700MS as a ranged champ for 2 seconds after crits and somehow that's balanced. Of course it wouldn't be "balanced" if Riot couldn't sell skins or promote the champ at Esports events.

Congrats! I've always been a high silver low gold elo player but I decided I wanted to get Plat This year.... And I did finally. Started at silver 4 and climbed to plat 4. Took me like 500 games but I did it finally. I also did it with off meta picks, mostly Nasus.
