I'm not arguing that he should be in solo lanes, read what I said again. I'm responding to his point about buffs when a legendary skin coming out.

I agree the buffs seemed a tad too much, but they probably took like half his player base away w/ the farming nerfs a couple patches ago and made him weaker in the bot lane. If they kept him reasonably viable in solo lanes would've made much more sense financially.
> He also got butchered out of solo lane Well, a champion that is meant to support shouldn't be in a solo lane in the first place. I 100% promise you that Riot didn't make Pyke with the idea of him being a dominant solo laner. If they did, he wouldn't be able to give his allies gold.
: You didn't really give a reason as to why it shouldn't be 20 seconds though. You just say "It makes no sense, let's nerf it", and then back it up with, well, nothing. I could care less if Pyke's reset was 1 second, or even a minute long, I just don't think you have an argument at all here.
You're being dense. You know why that's too strong, and you know that it doesn't even need to be said. It's very obvious.
: im sick and tired or range champions getting to freely auto attack me while taking no minion agro
Well there _is_ supposed to be an inherent advantage in terms of early poke when vs ranged as a melee champion. That much makes sense. Why wouldn't someone with 550 range not sit there and auto-attack you? I'm going to assume that you're talking about Akali since it's in your name. She's had tools in her kit to make up for this. Doran's Shield really helps you stay healthy enough early while in lane and based on your match history, you rarely build it. Also, you can hard push the lane to force the enemy to focus on waveclearing instead of focusing on you. However, be wary when doing that because if your laner has a lot of waveclear early, they can freeze the wave under their turret.
: Any champs that you just can't play against no matter what?
LeBlanc scales awfully. In most cases, she has to get an early lead and end the game before she gets out-scaled. Leblanc also has poor waveclear, she and cannot be aggressive if there's a huge wave; force her to use her W (the dash) to clear waves. If she can't get an early lead from you or from roaming, the game becomes harder for her.

If dodging from bad net or client bugs were something you easily could prove, Riot would owe me quite a bit of LP. Furthermore, if this was something you could prove to Riot, there'd be many people that would lie and just unplug their router or do something to spike their internet and voila~ Riot would have no choice but to render them innocent.
: Riot, can you straight up just ban people from ARAM for dodging
And if your client bugs out or you have bad net? BANNED MWAHAHHAHA because Grimraust got upset. Yeah..no.

: Is sexuality necessary in a MOBA?
You listed only homosexual examples. Meanwhile Rakan and Xayah. Therefore, there’s no issue in including sexuality. It’s really that simple.
: pykes excute has to be the worst designed excute in the game
Riot's so desperate to make unique champions. Can we have a simple champion with no new mechanics, please? It's clear Riot's been having balance troubles with their latest reworks/releases (Aatrox, Irelia, Akali, Mordekaiser, Sylas, etc.)
: If Lux gets a reset, can Lissandra have one?
Lux and Lissandra aren't the same kinds of mages. Still, I don't disagree that Lissandra needs some help.
: Omg I'm apparently #2 Liss player NA, #12 Globally
200 games and 60%+ wr is really nice. Congrats! Now you're living up to the summoner name {{sticker:sg-miss-fortune}}
: Honestly you should get the autofill protection if you played any of the roles you didn't queue for. Queue for Mid/Top and get Bot, Jung, or Supp, protection for you.
Makes the most sense.
: But it needs to happen.
Riot makes money from new champions. That is why this will never happen.
: Can we stop
This will never happen. The best we can hope for is Riot to adopt better champion balancing principles when creating new champions and reworking older ones.
: Pyke's ult can be recast if an enemy champion dies in the X. Pyke isn't Darius.
Although I agree that simply because Darius has the mechanic doesn't mean Pyke should, I do think that him not needing to land the killing blow with his ult for the reset is a bit stupid.
: Does anyone else feel like Qiyana is a little...
Maybe people just don't know how to play her? She's not simple.
: My favorite part of Sylas is how people deny him being overloaded, because he has to be for his kit to work. The man has a knock up, slow, aoe, waveclear, a dash, a shield, a heal, an execute, and a solid 401K plan from his job. I get he needs a knock up so he can use Yasuo ult, but a heal? Really? Why? Why a shield? Why a dash? Why can't his E just have the second effect the first time? Don't forget this man can take ANY ULT in the game and give it an AP scaling because...reasons. All those champs with bad AP scaling because they have high base damage and kits that are meant to utilize other stats? You know, {{champion:63}} with his liandry's DoT, {{champion:31}} who is supposed to go tanky with maybe 1 AP item, {{champion:79}} the tanky champ with maybe an AP item but here's a high base damage just in case. Yeah Sylas just takes those and fucking nukes with them, but that's fine because he's melee (except for his Q which lets him poke and CS from a safe distance).
> solid 401K plan from his job. Ty for the much needed laugh.
: I heard something about the system matching you with players who are in their provisional games / have much lower MMR than the enemy team to "prove that you are better and deserve to climb." If that's true it's a complete pile of crap for a system, because if more than one of my opponents are at least as competent as I am, and there are a bunch of gibbering monkeys on my team, they are going to hardstomp the game no matter what I try to do to stop them. Winning doesn't even feel good anymore, because it's rarely due to my skill as a player and almost always due to the enemy team just having a few bad players on it that I was able to take advantage of. Even the game where I went 24/2, you'd think "oh wow you carried that game super hard" which I guess is true, but only because the enemy bot lane constantly overextended without vision, didn't look at their map or listen to MIA pings, and tried to hide under turret with 10% HP against an OTP Katarina... I'm surprised the "role detection system" didn't think I was playing Kat support with how much time I spent bot lane farming free kills from awful players (one of which was Gold 3...)
> Winning doesn't even feel good anymore, because it's rarely due to my skill as a player and almost always due to the enemy team just having a few bad players on it that I was able to take advantage of. Summary of this entire season.
: Promo matchmaking is a twisted joke.
Some might say that we look at promotional games with much more severity because they mean more. However... I’ll admit that I got suspended for mental booming after losing a promo game because I had 2 teammates that claimed they didn’t play the role they were assigned (they also terribly fed). Then I looked at the enemy team, and they were all on their mains. Even then, I didn’t actually flame anyone on my team. It was a remark made by the enemy in post-game lobby that sent me wild. Regardless of if I was just unlucky or if the system is significantly imperfect, it certainly is angering.

: Dodge skillshot
It's almost like splash damage is Luden's purpose.
: Because auto fill is necessary for upper levels of play due to lower player population at those tiers. Riot then decided that it's not fair for low tier players to receive preferential treatment. Me? I just reset the queue every three minutes or whenever someone dodges/declines/fails to join. I rarely am ever filled because of this practice. And it generates the same feeling as though I am to wait 10+ minutes just to get my preferred role. It's worth the wait.
I understand and mostly agree with you, but the problem isn't _me_ getting auto-filled. It's when someone is just doing so poorly because they don't play the role. It just feels bad to check their match history and see that your last top laner only plays Sona, Yuumi, and Nami.
: Then how come utility AP ratios work for Lulu and Sona ?
: "I support Nubrac but I do not want him in my own games"
That's exactly why I don't support either of them, but I know that I EASILY would have been the Nightblu in this situation. It's always "haha" and "git gud" until you're 1-1 in promos and you get them in your game.
: NB3 and Nubrac both deserve to be ban, LOL
Playing Zed support in ranked 100% should warrant you a punishment.
: It is ok to break meta Unless
Until it happens in you or one of your friends' ranked games, and then you're ready to go to war.
: Can we lay to rest that he "contacted his friend"? With his argument with nubrac he pointed out that Riot Zephyr (who he contacted IS NOT HIS FRIEND) its a discord channel made for a program Riot rewards streamers through (i didnt care to listen what rewards it was something about green chromas or something). Point of the matter is he put it in that discord channel and got the attention of Riot and later pressed it further because nubrac was still playing and shoving it in NB3's face 2 days later. All Riot Zephyr did was pretty much bring it to Riot's attention much like a support ticket would. Now because this was a matter of greifing on stream if other players were to see this and see nubrac went unpunished WHILE DOING THIS ON STREAM in a high elo, troll players follow in kind. So im tired of having to explain he did not contact a "Riot friend" he said it as a joke on stream like "im gonna tell my dad who works at riot" and everyone blew it out of proportion. God damn people need to learn satire and sarcasm.

: Yuumi is disappionting.
I really want to say, "Ladies and gents, this is why Riot doesn't listen to us when it comes to balancing changes." But giving a champion the ability to freely hop 3000 range as a passive seems like something Riot's incompetent champion design team would do.
: Still waiting for her pointless passive to get merged with her R... Maybe one day...
Meanwhile every other new/reworked champs gets to have passives on their abilities lmao.
: Oh okay, yeah that's not the same thing. They just need to revert to the 5.10 Mantra changes and take it from there. They've been forcing this iteration to work since S6 and it's not happening.
Maybe I'm just pessimistic, but I don't see Riot doing that ever. Seems a bit too good to be true...especially since, like you said, Riot's been obsessed with their latest iteration.
: No wtf you on about, people complained to oblivion thats why it was scrapped, it's because of people like you thats why she didn't have the rework.
Do you think giving Karma the ability to reduce allies' cooldowns is a good idea?
: If you're talking about a big gameplay update it's probably not gonna happen, since they're already working on things like Volibear Fiddlesticks and an upcoming adc. I think a minor one is possible though.
I'm talking about a minor champion update similar to Ezreals. It was already planned but then was scrapped because of of...well incompetence.
: I just played with current karma and she almost killed me and my adc at lvl 1 with 1 q with spelltheif's only. That's actually fucking disgusting considering her shield and movement speed as well.
That's simply impossible. The numbers don't match up...not even if you were Sona or Yuumi.
: I'm pretty sure they've never actually said that... unless you've got links to where they have?
https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/developer-corner/TkiBEVYV-karma-gameplay-change-preview?comment=00030000 They even said it tested well, but they decided not to choose it...despite that. I'll admit, it's not quite what I said, but they haven't done it before when they could have several times.
: Why a gameplay update when they could do a gameplay revert? Better yet, separate her into Karma and Darha. Might alleviate some of the tug-of-war issues between her 'flexible utility battlemage' fans and the 'she's a support' fans.
Bc riot has said many times that they wont let karma have shield-bomb, so that takes a gameplay revert out of the question.
: Riot lets champs like Riven and Yasuo to stay Top Tier, why Karma should be nerfed now? She is great now, leave her alone. Let players learn how to play against her. She still has clear weakness. She is a lane bully, and she should be a good lane bully, who falls behind during the late game. Top Karma becomes just a meat stick with slows, Support Karma a shield battery, and Mid Karma can deal damage but doesn't have any nukes. She doesn't need nerfs. Oh, and she is a good counter to Mordekaiser now, maybe that's why people are salty.
: it doesn't matter if no one asked for number buffs if you wanted actual game health and gameplay fixes then that era of morello-gamehealth-balancing is gone. All they do is set up balance levers of numeric fixes and then flip the switches when the winrates reach the threshold. It doesn't matter if those number changes fail to address the actual gameplay concerns of the playerbase. All the balance team wants to see is those winrate/playrate/banrate percentages at acceptable values and then they can call it a good job game fixed and go home.

That clip was about 22 minutes into the game, ahri had both components and just needed the combine cost next item she completed was morello (xerath was close too), the void was more important when 3/5 enemy team has two MR items. Actually 4/5 if you consider {{champion:8}} {{item:3083}} {{item:3065}}. 40% healing reduction isn't very effective when you can barely kill her in the first place, ignoring the healing her effective TTK was huge. 15.6% missing health on cast and potentially 15.6% 2 secs later is huge, they should shift some of that base 20% missing health into the ratio.

In that clip, Karma got the heal from the relic, redemption, and got off several shields and RWs. She had a visage among other tank items. Why wouldn't she stay alive until you guys finally CC'd her.

I would appreciate the buffs if I didn't know how Riot's poor balancing works. They release broken champion and then trash them after a few patches. They overbuff champions and then nerf them. They've done this to Karma before.

Same thing with Karma. She's ranged, has a haste, a root, and a slow, why is it fair that she can build IBG? Why is it fair to remove an item from every single ranged champ just because ezreal is fucking aids? How many fucking items are we going to see removed/reworked because of fucking ezreal? Fuck that champ.
No other ranged champion uses Iceborn Gauntlet as a core item. Nidalee sometimes builds it, but she could still use it in Cougar Form, because it's melee. Ezreal, Viktor, and Karma have historically been known to abuse the item.

I agree. I'm a Karma OTP, and there's no reason why she should be able to use it. Ranged champions also shouldn't be able to use Klepto at full effectiveness.
