: League Ads are false advertisement
Whenever my friends show interest in this game, I actively advise them against it.
: Maokai is a Juggernaut, not a tank: Change my mind.
Juggernauts usually have respectable damage. Maokai hits like a wet noodle.
: Ironically, Yasuos only weakness is...
His only weakness is his team reported for trolling/feeding/inting tilted because his jungler didnt camp his lane
Barcid (NA)
: Riven now still sits at a 56% winrate with a 60% on her mains
You can pick Riven up in 3 games and basically be a "main". She was once hard, but now she's got enough crutches that make her easier to play. It's the equivalent of calling yourself a comic book fan when you just watch the movies.
: I gave MadLife a piano lesson today (short story)
This is really wholesome dude. Teach him Wonderwall next
: It's time to remove Auto-Fill for ranked
I'd rather wait for a role I actually care about than play a frustrating 20 minutes in a role you just aren't wired to play.
: If you think Rek'Sai is absurd on Summoners Rift, she completely ruins Twisted Treeline
: Ok Riot (or anyone really), please explain this to my smol iron brain why this is ok.
It's because you're abusing Neeko top, you monster. But back to your point, yeah it makes no sense to punish people for playing safe and farming.
Moody P (NA)
: I've been playing a bit of dota and it's nutty how *functional* the equivalents of juggernauts are in that game; generous CC and utility and still doing good enough damage to qualify as carries, some of them scale, some don't. I've been saying it for a while that juggernauts need better kits.

: TSM might be the best strategic play team in the world right now.
TSM are intelligent, handsome, talented, and very social adept. TL are smelly cave trolls with DL being king of the troglodytes.
: I agree, Darius is arguably a shit show to play, the damage in league is oppressively high from all rolls and even more so from darius. In season 6-7 i played top darius and shredded solo que with ~70% winrate up to gold 5 before i stopped playing ranked. But the problem wasnt i didnt have a ranked drive, I just couldnt deal with the stress of playing darius anymore, I need to kick the shit out of my laner and basically kick them out of the game to carry my team. and the 30% of lost games? 10% fighting quinn 20% bot got fed If the adc was fed, even the high silver players could auto and walk away with relative ease, they didnt need to kite properly, they just needed to exist to stop me. I would have : 21 ad runes w start fervor of battle triforce rush I kinda pioneered todays build except i built: Triforce-DeathsDance-Steraks in a decent game. if not i would go the usual triforce tank build. But the stress of needing to dominate lane, manipulate waves, win 2v1 ganks, take towers and solo macro every game was so unfairly intense. This was around the time damage started to get out of hand too, I took these runes so i could destroy the lane, even when i was fed and had my tank build i would die in 3 seconds or less if i was being hit by the jungle/ top and mid at the same time. (And considering i would be around 6/0- 6/1 at this point thats kinda stupid) To just say, I hate how much damage is in the game, i hate being killed at lvl 3 from full health mid because the mid did that same ability spam combo rotation every mid does. I hate being 1v1'd by yorick r or just being one shot by a toplaner or "top lane" mage. I hate being ran at by the enemy support bot because they have self sustain and insane lane damage. I hate being instakilled by the enemy jungle because things like xin zhao exist. I hate hate brand, zyra, ezreal, zilean, yorick, and the list goes on. I feel like the game is genuinely less fun when these champs are picked.
I have similar experiences playing Garen. There's only so much you can do with the champion, you're only relevant for so long, and then poof your damage falls off. Building more damage items pretty much is the only way to stay relevant as just a black cleaver isn't enough. Steraks and Deaths dance are great items, but it feels bad knowing that they're better defensive options than actual defensive options too.
: We don't fix Riven and friends without doing something about Conqueror
Well they nerfed Conqueror and she's probably still just as popular if not more. The problem isn't just this particular rune or this particular item, although those need to be looked at too, but something more fundamental.

Ivrus (EUW)
: Kayle skins opinion [with POLL]
A traditional Kayle skin should be free because I don't want one of my original favorite champion to become just another generic good looking skin-seller. I want my old power-armor archangel back please.
: Idea for Tankiness Rune for Inspiration or Resolve
The answer is not in runes. The answer is in toning down damage overall.
: Remove the right for trash to be able to Surrender or
I feel like individual players should get an lp loss forgiveness whenever their boosted bonobo teammates feed like the dirty degenerates. Punishing individuals who do well and perform well and did everything within their ability is unjustifiably cruel.
: are you serious or just trolling ? xD . But man if u're trolling i'm serious . If Zed can do all his dmg by using at least 3 abilities and a cait can do more damage with 2 aa that's not fair . wdyt ?

ADCs doing less damage would make them actual DPS rather than bursts per minute. Asking for more damage in this already damage stacked game kappa
: Maybe nerf adcs too like you keep nerfing assassins ?
nerf damage overall nerf cooldown reduction nerf defensive items to compensate continue to remove mechanics from oversaturated kits there you go, the game is infinitely better
: Udyr items builds.
just watch trick2g

: I just watch DWG vs KZ where aatrox,riven,yas and irelia were picked then I watch this and hash is complaining about about how no one plays bruisers in the lcs lol. Im 90% he actually does not watch any lcs since barely any one plays vlad and jayce vs the amount of people picking bruisers. Also did I just hear hash say galio is broken??????? . Also my favorite part is when blast starts talking about how when people complain about champion kits they just list off them and thats it since it so true.

Aatrox isn't a bruiser. Neither is Yasuo. Riven isn't a bruiser either. Irelia is a bruiser, but she's got so much in her kit that it lets her get away with being one. Pro play is different from soloqueue obviously and playing against Vlad and Jayce as a melee champion that doesn't have more than one dash is annoying.

: Moody P, here are the statistic of Top lane Bruiser AKA supposed to be suffering against ranged...
Statistics really don't tell the story of top lane. And when it actually comes down to it from a gameplay standpoint, unless your melee champion has a dash you're usually in for a bad time.
JJI744 (NA)
: As of right now, toplane is dominated by melee, in terms of both the champions that see play there as well as the most effective champions In fact, I don't think there has been any point in recent history where ranged has been dominate toplane, at best (worst?) there has been one ranged champion that can be effective toplane at a time because the champ itself is too strong.
Viktor Top was absolutely disgusting. Urgod continues to get gutted. Jayce and Kennen still exist too. They're not common though.
: Is there a single tahm kench main who isn't a troll ?
I wouldn't say that I main Tahm Kench but he's hilarious in top lane melee matchups. Like the absolute salt one froggy boi can collect with a silly bruiser-ish build.
: New Kayle look is terribad
Old Kayle was basically the Samus of League of Legends. I'm going to miss her but Riot wants to sell virtual ass and tiddies.
Rioter Comments
: As a Kayle main.......I don't like her new kit.
"Her visual update is excellent" I mean you do you but... I'm not touching new Kayle until they make her actually look like how she used to.
: The New Kayle
Old lore: "Though a beautiful, striking creature, Kayle, now as then, avoids showing her face; war has taken a terrible toll upon her spirit. In her quest for victory, she sometimes would try to lift the wicked up from their morass of evil, but more than often she instead purged those she herself deemed beyond redemption. To Kayle, justice can so often be an ugly thing." Rito logic: Let's make her strip when she levels up.
: THE LEGACY KAYLE/MORGANA SKINS HAVE BEEN RELEASED!!!
RIP all five original Kayle mains. They butchered Kayle and did her dirty.
: Silver kayle is from box preorder like goth annie. if it came out now those pre beta players would be PISSED

Imagine a champion with such an iconic look being generified into some bioware looking templar shit.

Grimmrok (EUNE)
: Kayle, why is she so ugly? (rant)
She's just thematically wrong. Why does she perform a striptease when she transcends if her ultimate goal is to become a faceless, judicator? Why is her face visible now when she used to hide it? Why was her heavy, practical-ish plate armor replaced with skintight plate (lol) and goofy looking shoulder pads? Why does she have a cooler color scheme which represent some sort of passivity and peacefulness when she originally had a warm color scheme signifying her ruthless righteous fury? Why did they turn her red and gold color scheme, something kinda basic yet absolutely fitting, and just throw in this hodgepodge of blues, purples, and the like? What happened to her angelic wings and why have they've been turned into this silly looking butterfly wings? It's only after she transcends that she finally starts looking like her old self but for like the majority of the time she doesn't look like herself anymore. Like it's like they purposely looked at a Kayle and said "you know what, let's get rid of everything and reinvent the wheel!" She's no longer the archangel that she's supposed to act like anymore. It's not just flat out ugly, but it's distasteful considering how iconic Kayle is to League of Legends. As someone who's been playing since the beginning I just don't get why you'd change her so drastically. I mean with a rework like Gangplank, at least he still is somewhat recognizable. Garen's update still retains his identity. But this new Kayle just does not look like Kayle. If you had shown me this new Kayle in like Season 1 when I still played her, I wouldn't honestly have recognized her. She just looks so alien now and it's a HUGE difference.
: I agree that some elements of the new skins do clash, on that we can agree. However some of the things you point out here, like the Final Fantasy esque sword are just opinion things. If you look at some of the champ models and skins that have come out recently, I think you just have to accept that the design team is currently leaning even a little more into the anime styles of design than they used to. Not necessarily a bad thing, just a matter of preference. I think the only errors are the areas where things don't line up with appearance and lore. Although if I'm not mistaken aren't they updating the backstory as well? Like in the past Kayle was, as you said, a righteous holy avenger and Morgana was the cruel sister. I could be wrong here, but I thought that the new Kayle was supposed to not only be good, but be more about peace/passivity/non-violence in general, that way she is more of a polar opposite of her sister. In that case the cool color scheme would actually be very fitting.

In that case the cool color scheme would actually be very fitting. The new champion reveal for Kayle just seems to suggest that she's the same ruthless wrathful holy knight. The sword, alongside the armor pieces, and just how they're put together still do not add up or look the part. Granted, it does get a little better once she reaches her transcended form, it still just doesn't make sense. And if there's anything completely off of Nu Kayle is the fact that they went the opposite direction of her previous lore with the whole transcending thing. The idea of justice is that it is impartial, unyielding, cold, and impersonal. Old Kayle basically wanted to transcend being a person and hid her face so that she could deliver that sort of impersonal justice. Nu Kayle's transcending does the opposite, in that it kinda strips her of her armor to reveal her face and thematically it just goes against that ideal.
Rioter Comments
: In your opinion, what are the unhealthiest champs, mechanics, strategies in the game?
{{champion:92}} Literally the archetype that Riot uses to create more and more overloaded kits with
: I F*cking Hate Nasus
Then the later midgame/late game rolls around and he's literally at the mercy of the enemy team to not CC/focus him first like they usually ought to. I mean he's a really really good champion but this is modern League and it doesn't really matter if you have 3 million stacks when the game is chock full of champions that can kite with multiple dashes and lock him down.
: Patch 9.4 in a nutshell. Frustrating champions edition.
Riven Mains: i learn combo, i press buttons, i build {{item:3161}}{{item:3812}} , after that me win ez, if lose just blame jungler Me, someone who has to play against fraudulent champions like Riven: I need to watch her closely, manage distance and choose my trades wisely, and if she manages to get ahead there's not much I can do. Her kit is filled with bullshit like dashes on dashes and a shield that lets her trade for free so the only way I can get damage on her is if I somehow manage to bait out her abilities ahead of time. Even then I have a very short window to capitalize, somewhere close to around 5-6s at most. I'll probably need to build armor early to mitigate her damage too. I'd better make sure wards are down just in case her jungler comes because if he does and I don't immediately back off I'm dead and this lane is over.
: Hot take. More like hot garbage.
: Well obviously you can't just pick up and play her. I think what makes Riven so overbearing is that she actually has so many dedicated players/mains.
You need more skill to play against Riven than to actually play her. If someone knows the matchup, obviously they're more equipped to beat her. She has just about everything she could ever ask for in a kit. She can press her buttons in different orders, build different items, take different runes. Most champions like Darius, Garen, and Nasus are given way more limited kits. Dedication is one thing, but a Garen or Darius main never achieves the same level of success as a Riven main because their champions have very clear limitations. Riven's innate potential to carry a game especially in higher elos is higher than that of most champions, especially the ones that you've listed outside Yasuo. She's got so much potential because her kit allows her to do more. It's harder to fight against something with more tools than to fight with them, even if initially it seems more complex.
