: Bunch of newfriends iit that have no knowledge of boards history and the constant putting down on us and favoring reddit over their own forums. We have been shit on and pushed into a smaller and smaller corner for years, and you come on here and shit on us more and paint us as the villain and riot as the victim. You have no clue what you are talking about. You want change? It starts with the people in power, and that isn't us. I said it once and I was silenced but I'll say it again because it is the truth, if riot wants us to respect them and this faux reddit platform they forced on us they need to come to us with some humbleness for once and show actual contrition for the sorry state they have put us in. Until then we have no obligation to go to bat for a company that has always put us last.

I used to come here a long time ago and stopped because the post were literally 99% useless. It’s all just hate/rant/vent with really bad feedback suggesting changes that completely throws off the balance of the game even more just cause their “frustrated “.
: All he has done is reinforce (in my mind) that Riot doesn't want to listen to the community unless it's blatant praise. I haven't forgotten about PAX West and how Riot stood by being sexists while claiming there was no sexism at all. I haven't forgotten DZK's blatant trashing of the community. I haven't forgotten most of Riot's many broken promises. I haven't forgotten how little they will admit to mistakes. I haven't forgotten that Riot has lost favor of both Boards and Reddit (the two largest mainstream League communities) over two major mistakes (Dynamic Queue and PAX West). For Dynamic Queue, they claimed the attacks were unfair. I haven't forgotten their decision to cater the game to casuals (Season 5 Juggernaut patch was the beginning of this implementation). And at no point have I forgiven them for those nor the ongoing issues showing a distinct incompetence or lack of foresight.

The boards isn’t the whole community, just a part of it and is honestly regarded as the worst by everyone, even the reddittors look down on pretty much everyone here.

I have visited these boards daily for 7 years and currently the attitude that exists is the worst I have seen in my time.

Exactly, there’s some truth to what riotaugust said as generally 99% of the post here are literal garbage filled with negative attitudes and not helpful in terms of feedback.

: Riot plz don't buff Darius...
Had a feeling someone would cry about this, especially Someone who has never even been in high Elo. How can you claim something without even experiencing it ? Darius is garbage the higher you go up

What kind of buffs could the team be looking at for riven Darius and Camille ?

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: November 10
Can we get an update on Darius ? His wintste has taken a heavy hit.
: Urgot is my new favorite champion
Ah another wannabe, it's like everyone's maining urgot now
: So about Urgot....
Deal with it kid, I can tell from the long essay that it's a rant, like seriously of all the champs you complain about it's urgot ? One of the most underplayed top lanes champs next to singed
: If darius smites a minion when his ult deals damage he gets noxian might
: Unbalanced champions
Ah low elo, makes sense now

Good, now all the wannabe Darius mains can finally leave
: "there's no satisfaction playing a champion I apparently play a lot" play aatrox if you want a shitty champion
Not a shitty champion but rather just viable is what I want or like tier 2, think of prereworked Darius

Thats what i thought initially so wheres solo q ?
Rioter Comments
: Does Riot have any plans to fix Darius' stats?
Try playing him in high Elo, then we'll talk.
: Can we talk about Protobelt?
I've barely seen anyone use this item... aside from Annie or kennen that need it for engages and if it's such a problem, nerf the champions that abuse it rather than the item....why are you complaining about it now of all times ?
: Darius isnt the easiest champion, but he can get you out of bronze and silver
You can brag about being good with darius, so as long as you excel at playing him in the higher Elos.
: Why Darius is easily my most hated champion in league
You hate darius yet you main a champ that counters him ? Lmao...
: I'd like Super Galaxy Kindred refunded, please;
Well maybe next time you should stop buying skins for champs that are op or seen in lcs frequently cause you KNOW they will get nerfed. Leave kindred for those who ACTUALLY main her damn wannabe.
: Patch Chat with Playtest Team - 6.13
Any future plans on darius ? The past fotm top laners and even the current fotm are very good matchups for him making him a really strong pick. When he gets ahead he also feels impossible to comeback from.
: Please don't go through on the new Kindred nerf
Let it happen, there needs to be a difference between the long time main kindred and the trash lcs wannabe kindreds.
: What happened for Darius to have 52.79% winrate this patch on champion.gg?
I wouldn't mind another nerf, I would still destroy everyone anyways
Hige (NA)
: Nidalee making me feel things...
God that French maid splash is sooo seductive, absolutely love it
: Kindred
Well for those of us who are the true kindred mains that mained her since release won't really care
: Gut Kindred
Agreed, however I will say though is "git gud", it's not that hard to beat a kindred
: so uh, how come kindred is getting buffed in 6.10
: bleeds out of what? he heals off minions and hes reasonably tanky. also his slow and W makes it really hard for me to kite him he has more cc than me. u seem to main darius and know a lot more than me. the only two matchups i ever lost as darius were irelia and i always lose to trundle. tho i outscale irelia but not trundle. once it gets to level 6 its over against the troll. he heals too much and he has too much sustained damage and sticking power the fact u told me to not fight at level 1. as darius. arguably the last champion anyone wants to 1v1 at level 1. against trundle. says a lot.
He's not gonna kill minions as he's fighting you and his cc is just something you got to deal with, there's no real answer for it, just use your cc to counter his and kite. Irelia will more than likely destroy darius mid game because of the powers pike she gets from trinity force and/or other items however you are correct that darius outscales her late game full build. I personally don't like playing against trundle either since he is definitely a formidable opponent but I usually win through experience. Darius maybe good at a lot of level 1 1v1 but the 2 champs you must absolutely avoid is Olaf and trundle, their level 1 unfortunately is a lot stronger, even with ignite unless they are bad or make a mistake but that's hard to do so with them.
: is darius vs trundle an impossible match up for what for darius
Never fight at level 1 and the goal here against trundle is to get 5 stacks and kite with q. Kiting with q is probably the most important thing you have to do against trundle cause you will heal and extend the fight as he bleeds out.

: Kindred is completely destroying the diversity in the jungle.
I say another nerf is needed, yea winrate dropped to like 50% but in comparison to other junglers Atm why would you not pick kindred ?
: ''Tanks are so op , they do more DMG as a Carry !!!''
Juggernauts are broken ? That's laughable, maybe In low elo but when you bring them up here, everyone knows how to crush them.
: nerfplz 6.8 3v3 tier list
Don't you have anything else better to do then just copy and paste stuff ?
: I might be in trouble next time I log in, cause I left a game a few minutes ago
Lmao in your elo darius absolutely destroys, king of capitalizing mistakes, so just git gud
: because your including every elo from wood to astronaut. every bronze->silver and even gold game has darius. and garen too also nasus. people tend to play champions that are hard to fuck up with in low elo. nasus garen and darius. all of them are tanky and do a lot of damage. good pattern there. jack of all trades champion and masters of none. also known as juggernauts.
Switched to platinum+ and still one of the most played.
: Why did darius suddenly become one of the most played top laners in ranked?
* From what I can see l, it appears that darius is used as a strong counter pick to meta too laners thus becoming meta and results in a higher play rate despite low winrate while also being a champ that has considerable potential to dominate games when played in the right hands. And maybe people just like him purely for lane dominance.

Fawksea (EUW)
: i'd help, but from 5-6 i don't hear any music, can you give a specific time?
You don't hear it ? Well it is kinda hard to hear I suppose but ik for a fact that it starts at about 4:50 and them ends at about 10:00, so the song essentially is more than 5 minutes. But if you want a specific time, for about a second or 2 starting at 6:56 you can maybe hear it cause redmercy stops talkingfor a tiny bit.
Rioter Comments
: If you play Darius, you're probably bronze
Checked your match history, you went against a darius, and you made him go 0/7 ? And here you are saying he's op and that only bronze players play him ? Lmao....
: Does this game favor powerful low skillcap champs? There's not enough bans to go around...
: Anybody screaming nerfs for Darius?
What are you saying man ? Can you look at the overall winrate cause that's where it matters most.
Rioter Comments
: Riot isnt afraid of gutting morde,gp,darius whenever they are played a bit but are fine with nidalee
Ah it's one of the best darius mains himself, massive respect for playing him in high elo, not sure how you do it but about nidalee. I'm sure she's one of those champs that are strong in the right hands and only in the right hands. Here in plat, they are all pretty bad, so i guess it ain't the same case in high elo ?
: Why is it when you ask for proof that fiora is OP or not everyone cries but when you offer some...
Irrelevant to the topic but out of curiosity, what are these "answers" to darius that you were talking about ? Pls do tell for such knowledge is definitely very valuable in the top lane.
