: "We won't make video about rework champion " What you mean is we YOU are too lazy to actually work.
Riot has an LGBTQ+ department. Not hating on them or anything, just think that it is extremely pointless IMO and i'm sure they have other pointless ones aswell.
Defendi (NA)
: Aram is not random.....
It is weighted towards the free champ rotation. That's why you think it picks champs you never play/don't own, because in a way it does.
Dealth (NA)
: Playing more doesnt make you win more
Try telling that to LCS teams that practice 8+ hours per day like it's their full time job. If your goal is to to learn from mistakes you will do it, if you are playing on auto pilot of course you won't learn anything.
: MMR Makes no sense.
Nothing to do with winrate. It has everything to do with the AVG MMR of everyone on the team compared to your own personal MMR. The reason you are only gaining 17 is because you are Gold 3 MMR playing in a silver 1 avg MMR game.
Εlin (EUW)
: Bronze VS Silver - is there much skill difference?
When you are at your level the difference is huge. If you ever get to plat or higher you will see the difference in skill was actually barely anything.
: Please Riot, these Renek and Kled changes are terrible for toplane. What are u doing?
Kled is the epitome of cancer in top lane. If anything he needs nerfs.
: why does no one talk about how unhealthy vlad is rn
Vlad does good in mid lane because it's hard for mages to poke him out of lane through his sustain. Top lane completely different story. The cancerous bruisers jump on you and your dead, or you pool and they jump on you 10 seconds later and you are dead.
: My problem is I don't see why I should bother learning how to land multiple skillshots for optimal damage and effect when a blockhead like Garen, Darius and Nasus can just walk into a fight and press one button. It was the same problem as {{champion:106}}'s bite a few years ago, its just too easy to do and gives too much reward compared to a champion that requires skilful aiming. They don't take precision or awareness to really play and I just don't see why people need to be rewarded for that. Most tanks/bruisers have some kind of skillshot they need to aim. (Darius's does not count because of how wide it is)
100% agree man. However the circle jerk bruiser mains will forever claim you can and must kite them.
Manxxom (NA)
: Nasus however is VERY difficult to kite because of that slow
Atleast you can counter slows with phase rush. Speed boosts coming at you well thats another story. (looking at you {{champion:86}} )
: Why are the "Dumbass" level champions so rewarding in this game?
: I'd rather go against an S tier champ every game over yasuo once in a while
Let's try to keep in mind yas is being spammed in LCS for the first time that I can remember.
murchalvias (EUNE)
: Gold funneling should be removed from Twisted Treeline
Gold funneling was nerfed on TT alongside the nerf to gold funneling on SR. It was amazing for a couple months until they actually reverted the nerf for no reason at all.
: So I read RiotRepwhatever's explanation of how to determine if a champion is overpowered.
Vladimir is not one shotting unless he is fed. If you fed a vladimir you need to rethink how you fight him, maybe don't take empowered Q's to the face? Even all your ranting aside he still gets pounded by the majority of top laners.
: Is 51% winrate even nerf-worthy? If we rotate through nerfing all of the melee top laners, we'll be in a situation where melee champions have no lane to go to. In the short term, Riven, Jax, and Renekton would just be played more if Aatrox is nerfed. There is a pretty decent top lane meta right now so we should be careful not to destroy it. As an outside observer, I see a pretty diverse top lane roster right now with a good variety of viable champions. I don't think Aatrox is acting as a 'gatekeeper' preventing many other picks, so that's a good thing. Also Aatrox will always have a slightly inflated ban rate simply because he's alphabetically the first champion in the list and obvious to click when people choose a ban at the last second. I guess his ban rate is pretty high... How about a compromise where Aatrox just loses some ult healing to start with and one or two of the more obnoxious top lane influences are removed. For example, Neeko could be kicked out of top lane and shifted to become a healthier playstyle as an AP on-hit marksman bottom laner. Heimerdinger would also be healthier shifted out of top lane and buffed in healthier mid + bot roles. To encourage healthier AP representatives in top lane, Riot can release a melee-only AP brawler with the Mordekaiser rework, and that item could be used by AP melee top laners like Mordekaiser, Cho'gath, Rumble, and maybe top lane brawling tanks like Gragas, Galio, and Zac.
Top laners do have a place, it is called top lane, and it is why no other champions can go to this lane. You are sadly mistaken if you think you can take anybody top lane, because you can't. Super mobile ultra sustain insane tankiness one shot rotations is the only thing that thrives in top lane.
: Darius feels frustrating to play with
Darius job is to snowball the laning phase, which he can do in basically every single matchup, and then take that lead to win the game. Champions like darius are cancer because they breed zero interaction, you cannot beat him so you basically are not playing the game during laning.
Oozıe (NA)
: Nerf Aatrox or Yuumi or both. This shouldn't be in the game.
Aatrox needs to be reverted back before he was reworked. He is broken and the rework was a 100% failure in trying to turn a feast or famine overloaded healing bruiser into a decent champion. There is a reason his ban rate is yasuo/zed meme status atm.
: No what it says is one person can lose you a game, meanwhile one person can't solo carry. Two even ranked players play against each other. One loses hard, and tilts and begins to hard feed. Making it impossible for anyone else who is doing exceptionally well, to carry.
: It's insane to me that Diamond was so much easier to get than climbing out of silver.
Sorry bro but if you lost a silver game that is all on you. There is no way you could not outplay tunnel vision misclicking silvers if you are actually diamond.
Noax457 (NA)
: Aatrox tips and tricks
My tip for you is abuse him before he gets nerfed to the ground for being the most cancerous top laner to exist atm.
: Aatrox has a high Win Rate vs Vladimir and Ryze, but he has a higher Ban Rate than them.
Using lolalytics rankings Aatrox is ranked #1 in top lane. Vladimir is ranked #42 and Ryze is ranked #55. That is out of 64 champions in plat. Ryze is basically ranked one of the worst top laners in the game. The only champions that are ranked lower are tanks.
FireDrizzle (EUNE)
: I wish promos werent rigged
You can't prove your promos are rigged, but I can easily disprove the reasoning behind why you think they are. I have constant games where there are players on both sides on their promos, your theory is now disproved.
Kurorade (NA)
: I'm going to take a wild guess that you used all of your CC while he was mounted. Or you stayed under turret under 30% HP. Kled is a DIVER champion, he is meant to dive and kill.
I mean I highly doubt "diver champion" literally means tower dive and live while winning a 1v2.
: Sub 50% in every region's plat & below Only region where his WR accross all ranks is higher than 50 is KR btw "Muh no skill champion"
Are you talking about aatrox? If so I regret to inform you he sits at a 52% WR in plat and it only goes up from there with a 54% WR in master. That's with a 35% Ban rate in master aswell.
: everytime i play this game the bs that are bruisers
100% agree. People hating on "ranged top laners". Literally the bruisers are the problem. Their winrates are 2+% higher than their "ranged bullys". {{champion:266}} {{champion:83}} {{champion:420}} {{champion:240}} {{champion:86}} (WHO IS SUPPOSEDLY COUNTERED BY RANGE, HAS 2+% WINRATE OVER HIS RANGED MENACES){{champion:122}} {{champion:107}}(assassin bruiser right here) {{champion:75}} {{champion:23}} . These champions get on you, you either burn flash or die, or both. Disgusting.
: For 800 gold you can build Executioner's Calling against Vladimir!
Aatrox smashes vlad extremely hard without GW. I mean really the only thing vlad can do in this matchup is try not to die.(like 90% of his matchups)

Tanks have to win early game through their high base dmgs because they get massively outscaled later in the game. If they can't win the 1v1 in the laning phase then it's over, they will get smashed in lane and be way to far behind to tank anything for their team. This is why tanks hate fighting bruisers, they lose the 1v1 and then are worthless the rest of the game.

Yeah man top taken over by ranged champions you right. {{champion:266}} {{champion:84}} {{champion:122}} {{champion:114}} {{champion:86}} {{champion:420}} {{champion:39}} {{champion:24}} {{champion:240}} {{champion:75}} {{champion:58}} {{champion:107}} (MELEE SO BALANCED){{champion:92}} {{champion:68}} {{champion:27}} {{champion:23}}
: Need to fix 3s match making.
It needs way more than a matchmaking overhaul, it needs it own separate balance or it will always feel bad to play.
Żelk (NA)
: Vlad TBH needs nerfs but if you ever want to counter him I'd suggest kled cause if you hit your Q it goes through his pool and you can rush hexadrinker to reduce his mid game damage. Also if you land your E on vlad you can follow him if he ever trys to run with phase rush. @Riot nerf vlad pls.
Yes let's of course give vlad the nerf hammer and completely ignore champions like kled that run through everyone.
Nairoval (NA)
: Phase Rush Vlad Balance?
Dude what? You have ONE game with a vlad in it that you went up against, you went even. You actually went against a vlad in one game and he got absolutely smashed by your team.
hoganftw (NA)
: Top lane is for masochists.
I love the bias in your list of champions(besides riven). Let me introduce you to the real cancers of top lane. {{champion:266}} {{champion:84}} {{champion:122}} {{champion:36}} {{champion:114}} {{champion:420}} {{champion:39}} {{champion:24}} {{champion:126}} {{champion:240}} {{champion:75}} {{champion:58}} {{champion:517}} {{champion:6}} Those champions can all in you at ANY time they want and it is kill or be killed. If you are not playing kennen or vlad into these champs you are going to have miserable experience.(and if they are any good you will still have a miserable experience)
: There is no way promos use the same matchmaking
It's not true. I have had countless games where there would be people in promos on BOTH TEAMS. Explain to me who gets the worse teammates.
: So, how do I effectively counter the Zed ult laning phase?
Play {{champion:8}} or {{champion:105}}.
: How is vlad balanced?
He is one of those champs that has his own playstyle and you need to master it to do good with him. You cannot just pick up vlad and proceed to collect freelo, it does not work like that.
: 100 % agree, in fact it is way worse, a prominent streamer doing a Iron to whatever series started in iron and was on almost a 30 game winning streak and was not jumped divisions ahead somehow.... what a game ruining experience for the iron and silver players for every game he plays....
Except this doesn't happen. Stomping placements on any account is going to put you above iron players from the get go. Another 10 wins you are playing with plats. It is virtually impossible to smurf in iron.
: Pretty sure I brought this up like the 2nd week of the season. I won 8/8 of my game placements on my smurf, and the game placed me in bronze 4. Then I made a post about how this game was going to be dominated by smurfs in the future because its going to be hard for them to rank up
There is no way I believe this. Infact I 100% believe you are lying. After every game now it tracks your rank. In placements you get +50 LP most of the time after a win. So if you went 8-0 you should be in ATLEAST bronze 1 even if you started at bronze 5(which you didn't).
: I hate smurfing and I do 100% believe a large portion of the smurfs I encounter are doing it to stop people in lower ELOs because they cannot handle playing vs people at their own skill level. It's annoying, and yeah OP is probably right about this but I think smurfing in general is horrible for lower ELOs
Hate to be the bearer of bad news but at your rank their is no such thing as smurfs.
: Riot ruined smurfing in Season 9 and it's killing games for both smurfs and non-smurfs
You are overexaggerating this entire thing. First of all if you go 8-0 in your promos and get placed in silver 1 you will not actually be in silver 1, silver 1 will just be your rank. You will have the MMR of mid golds(possibly even higher) getting 25+ LP per win until you start losing games. Source: I have lots of smurfs and this is what happens every single time. The sad truth is there are no true smurfs in your silver games, those players are actually silver.
: More voting bots what a surprise /s
Doesn't make what is said not true. If you can't climb you have only yourself to blame.
: Silver
It does not get any better the higher up you get. If you think you are climbing to the land of non flame and zero trolls you are sadly mistaken. If anything it gets worse because you make one mistake and get ready for the downpour of flame.
: Solution for the unfun state of game
It wouldn't really change anything in the long run of things. (outcomes of teamfights would remain the same regardless of -20% damage or not more than likely.) However it would make it a more engaging experience which is a plus in my book.
: i can't stick to a champion or playstyle plz help
1.Pick a champion(or two) you really like to play 2.Watch streams of one tricks playing these champions. (Riste for garen, zwag for xerath, foggedftw2 for tryndamere as examples) 3.Carry your silver teammates on your back.
Boppas (NA)
: Why lose LP for dodging
What if you are a one trick and the enemy team bans your champion?
: You know if Sona wasn't a squishy she going to be another ranged top laner who abuse kelpto
Solo lane sona is 100% cheese and 1 MR item takes her out of the game.
: Not sure what you are referring to. Are you talking about the 5v5 changes that happened to effect 3v3? Or are you talking about the 50g increase for the support items on Patch 8.6? Either way, Riot did not intent to update TT and they obviously did not make any different on it. And for argument's sake, maybe Riot did implement a funneling nerf. That is still one update in 4 years, which is absurd.
You wanting something to dissapear because it doesn't get updated is what is absurd. Let's start counting the champs that havn't had a balance change in a year or more and delete them.
: Monthly Reminder That Twisted Treeline is a Stain on League of Legends
You saying it hasn't been balanced in 4 years is a lie. It actually was updated with the funneling update which made it very fun to play for awhile. They then for some reason REVERTED the funneling nerf and now it is shit boring funneling again. You can actually have dragged out fun fights in 3s(to an extent) because its not a 5v5 death fiesta where everyone just blows up in .5.
: If you won't fix the matchmaking, atleast let us leave shitty games?
Try not flaming the shit out of players that do bad and maybe they will ff.
RaQqa (EUNE)
: Vladimir is winning time bomb, just repair him.
Vlad is not freelo. He actually takes time to learn and the amount of things you can fuck up in a team fight mechanically is through the roof. Watching all the LCS players mechanically fail with vlad and it cost them the entire game is quite sad to watch at times. His W takes away 20% of his current hp, his E takes away 8% of his max HP. His Q is on a 9 second cooldown level 1, his E is on a 13 second CD. Vladimir is annoying with his EMP Q I will give you that. However it is extremely telegraphed and with his extremely slow base MS compared to other champs (looking at you bruisers) if you actually get to land an emp Q it is because of either bad positioning or their greed for CS.
: I went trough every single of your lasts games and couldnt find the one you are talking about : https://na.op.gg/summoner/userName=Scottsc20 Also I never had a rigged promo, so ... I guess i'm lucky.
Exactly this. You look up the match history for anyone claiming rigged promos and you find everyone was basically equal rank.

Not true. With the right champion you can 1v5 carry up to diamond, then macro becomes important, game becomes boring people make smurfs to 1v5 again.
