: WUkong low tier jungle and top
Level 1 Q literally doesn't have ANY scaling. Z E R O % AD. "Guys electrocute is a problem" Riot: -Pros pick Wukong once- (First time in four years!!!) Riot, the literal next day: Wukong has taken certain builds too far. No one likes getting one shot by an invisible enemy so we're removing Wukongs Q, nerfing his E, cutting Electrocute in half, and nerfing Sudden Impact. Meanwhile Zed and Vayne . . . "These champions are fine, we're keeping an eye on them but they havent hit the threshold for needing nerfs." This is why I stopped playing or buying skins
: Why a Zoe nerf is needed.
20 auto attacks from Miss fortune without her passive will kill any champion with no items at level 2. MFs autos are among the weakest in the game next to Orianna. Let's say the average champion has around 540 HP level 2. This requires all of 27 damage per spell to kill in 20 or fewer casts. A 0 AP - corrupting pot with CD/MR/?? runes as an example - Xeraths spells would be base of around 45(+×% AP, ratio irrelevant as you have 0.) damage. The fact that you're not at 0 AP however throws your fictitious "15-20 spells off cooldown" out the window because spells don't have such laughable bases unless your name is Wukong. Anothrr fun fact! Xerath has 1 ability that can be minion blocked, and of course its his typical CC ability and doesn't usually get leveled first. Zoe, however, cannot damage her lane opponent through your minions... unless she's risking pulling minion aggro by autoing you or casting ignite. In which case she's taking more than 45 damage in return, guaranteed. Even if you disconnect the instant she hits you.
: You could buff Ekko's base AD
I think it was +3 AD and E mana cost down by 10 at all ranks. (50-90 -> 40-80 or so iirc.) Huge buff to ekko jung

: 3 options - 2 champions
Spear Storm (from Disgaea) in League would be fun. Likely to be something involving ascension or moon power though since Riot wants to focus on "living god in a temporary mortal shell" idea Pantheon and his kin have. Think Kayles invuln + swords, Sorakas global heal, Leonas R in her newer skins. Calling down heavenly power. Might be a transformation ult like Aatrox and Swain or Kayles passive, but hopefully not.

: if you ever doubt the extent of power creep in this game
All of these changes have been aimed at making his skill ceiling higher. None of them effect his core weakness, and that of the entire class he fits into. Its not that Garens buffs were to offset powercreep, and none of them really effect his ability to win games. He just went from "annoying in lane immune to poke late" to being a more skillful champion that still does a lot of nothing. Show me Amumu or Veigar, champions who can effect win or loss by strength alone, and tell me what picture that paints. Powercreep is more evident in items than champions, and spin it all you like but your examples are cherrypicked and meaningless.

Wards arent standing gold. If you have a blitz support who can clear a few Zyra plants youre not going to.hollar that they took 5g from you. It doesn't matter whos standing on Reksais tunnels. Supports and ADCs in tandem clearing wards is faster than doing it solo and nets more gold.
: The prices for the IG bundles arnt Justified.
Thats nothing. The SKT 2016 skins came with a remarkable 40RP discount for buying the bundle, less than 1%. April Fools skins have generally all been 750RP too, and they were all 1350 this year. Anyone know why? Why does Rengar with a onesie cost $15? He barely has particles. No new effects either, recall animations are standard on all skins anyway....

Making Silver bolts scale on Vaynes HP makes no sense ... It could scale on AP though,albeit very poorly. 6/8/10/12/14 flat to 4/6/8/10/12(+1% per 100 AP) And now she's basically Kaisa but (still) better :^) Or just revert the last time W and R were buffed
Cloud273 (NA)
: How would you add more skill expression into Sona's kit?
Make her QWE casts alter the effects of each other. R always applies power chord but consumes any stacks and reverts QWE to their basic forms. This makes sona play like a musician, stringing notes together and hitting the biggest notes in a meaningful way. Her baseline effectiveness skyrockets but so does her difficulty, and her biggest weakness becomes a lack of response if engaged on before her rhythm picks up.
: Is Tahm Kench still viable?
Hes getting ludicrous buffs so yeah I'd pick him up. Especially support kench.
Martician (EUW)
: Practice Tool Demolish vs Turret Invicibility
Known interaction. Riot hasnt touched practice tool since they made it and won't put any extra features or repairs in it. Game timer doesnt reset if you restart. If this hits 1:00:00 for any reason the game ends, AFK warnings and disconnects apply to PT Spawning dragon counts as killing it. Also forces Scuttle to spawn for some reason. Cannot stack bots. Not all champions are available as bots. This means certain interactions cant be tested in a sandbox, so you still have to use custom games + friends List goes on.
: Thank You for Making Kindred Riot, Might I offer some feedback?
Kindreds R is Riot trying to design around pro play instead of organic champion balance enabling her to be picked. The theory is you can tower dive and everyone on your team gets a Tryn R but the tower doesn't- it also secures Dragons and Baron so you can R in a contested camp and buy extra time for Smite to come off CD or attempt to make the other jungle Smite an invulnerable Dragon by pressing R right as they go for the steal. However this isnt just strategically difficult; it's rarely an effective strategy at all and thus doesn't get used for that. Instead they pick Kindred to counter Urgot and Karthus ults
: Easter themed Skins
Bunny Tris would be too similar to candy Rush.... Oh wait.
: Why do people report for trying to surrender?
Its tilting, obtrusive and annoying. If you know your team isn't going to say yes, don't keep asking. Accept they're not ready to throw in the towel and willing to keep fighting to earn their LP - Or at least force the enemy to earn theirs.
Alkarious (EUW)
: Honour level 3
Its basically a time lock. 1 wrYoull hit honor 5 as long as you play ganes and login every week for the majority of the year. Won't even take the whole season but playing 12 ranked games a day or 3 games a week doesnt matter. Play ARAM and honor a random teammate helps to farm the key fragment drops though as those are ACTUALLY dependent on honors given and received.
Ludicol0 (NA)
: remove zoe
Zoe got removed like a year ago, stop whining.
Horızen (NA)
: [FYI] To those who twiddle their thumbs in the jungle
This is hilariously wrong. A good laner creates pressure on their own, and the jungler ganks off of that. Ganking when the enemy ADC shoves yours in and is backed up might net a flash, might give them a double kill. If your jungler is doing their job, they're grabbing scuttles, the enemy's buff camp, and dragons every time any of those camps are up. Yes level 2 ganks are super strong but not because of any kill threat - Because it forces the other team to give up a few minions or a summoner, and if the other jungle counterganks, you eat both scuttles and proceed to be untouchable because you already have a massive lead. I don't know if low elo laners realize this, but not only does 2 scuttles + dragon rob the other team of 170g + a permanent buff, it gives you more total gold + xp than a kill would. If you can get a kill but give up dragon and Scuttle for it, *ITS NOT WORTH IT. * That's how impactful farming is. Kills hardly matter if youre not an assassin.

It was too difficult to read on mobile formats. Brandon Beck and the marketing team are the ones who decided it, has nothing to do with the people who balance the game.
Banselot (EUW)
: Why the F supports are getting gutted? Bye Rakan
But Nauts passive is accelerated by 5 levels and his Q is stronger? So... y'know, no they're not? Rakan is being trimmed of an abusable combo because pros can reliably pull it off and MSI is looming. These changes brings down the pick/ban rate of Rakan and opens up Support picks while also decreasing the value of locking in Xayah in the event one team DOES get Rakan

: Requests for Morde's rework are probably going to be moot at this point, considering how far along he probably is. That said, Mordekaiser being a ferromancer makes 0% whatsoever in the new lore. It was a cute gimmick when he was nothing but a walking bundle of metal music references, but now he's one of the most feared lich warlords in Runeterra. The metal gimmick is probably going to be heavily reduced, and I don't see it having much relevance to who he is as a character anymore.

Malicious has already playtested it so apart from minor tweaks based on feedback, he's been locked in for weeks. Only thing that likely is awaiting work is skin design and SFX/Splashes. I think MSI is the only real reason Morde hasn't been released THIS far out since Sylas' release/Kayles rework.

: Riot Trying to End ARAM in 15 Mins
Because Blitz wasn't popular for very long. People got tired of it after 3 weeks or so and it got Dominion'd. Its for the best since appatently surveys said the most popular events were the trashiest ones like URF Royale and Prize Fight. Not only that but metas evolved and experimentation slowed massively and Riot is obsessed with their entire roster thats tailored to a specific map to be effective in maps that lack certain features by design. Like how Talon has no E and Reksai has no passive in ARAM but thats fine I guess

His Q shouldve summoned a bird turret or otherwise sustained damage over time from the manifestation of Beatrice. E could've been Beatrice latching onto targets and tearing out its soul, dragging the last victim she touches towards Swain and healing him based on missing health % R being JUST Demonflare, instead of a generic steroid Ult. Somewhere between old Swain and this version wouldve been perfect. I don't get the point of his current Ult. Oh and it would be nice if he didn't lose Nevermove, but Vision of an Empire's range is really cool and I cant see it being balanced with any Hard CC too, even if its super telegraphed. Imagining Cait placing traps and Swain moves just barely in range, creating a 4.5 second chain of immobilization that doesnt require commitment to a roam. NO way
5050BS (NA)
: Real reason riot did the Rank shift (adding Iron and Grand Master)
They have 0 reason to care. Victorious skins are purely commemorative and produce $0 for Riot directly. They can make them Master+ only or exclusive to accounts with at least 1 win in Ranked. Makes no difference The reason gold and up is because you cant decay out of Gold but above it you can. This means players who climb to mid plat or place in it wont have to fear a life situation pulling them away from the game for month or two causing them to miss the skin forever.
