: At the end of the day, LoL is a team game. If someone on your team makes several errors that significantly help someone on the enemy team, that might be the deciding factor in an otherwise equal match. It sucks when your team loses due to no fault of your own, but that's how a team game operates. =\
: ...what did I just read? "A good Yuumi will use her passive" Uh... Duh?
"all yuumis are afk shield bots" "good yuumis use their passive, duh" these two statements are contradictory.
: I honestly do not believe that TFT is ready for a Ranked Queue in its current state.
: It's not. As I said to someone else. It will take Jayce 14.5 (15 because you can't have half an auto) AAs to lose a single auto attack worth of damage at level 1, relative to pre-nerfs. Kennen takes 20. Neeko takes 13. This is already 80+% of your health bar. Yes, you need to calculate armor, but they can also start doran's blade and get adaptive force rune shards. That being said, the base AS nerfs are fairly significant. Especially for AS on hit Neeko and AD Kennen.
Again, about 8% of the damage they are able to output at early levels is getting reduced. By itself that isn't a strong nerf, but it is not insignificant. No matter how many times you say that. And that's not all of the change. But of course you thin skinned toplaners won't be satisfied until they're completely gutted and removed from the game, so I guess the argument is a waste of time.

: -4 AD at level one, back to normal around level 4, then buffed after that
Ranged top laners almost exclusively rely on hard poking someone down during the first few levels of the game, forcing them off CS, and snowballing that lead into a much bigger one later on in the lane. You're essentially reducing the majority of the damage that they can deal early on by 8% without taking into account other changes.
: Just remember boys and girls. It’s only a problem when it’s in top lane. Everyone else is just crying.
yeppp top lane players are the thinnest skinned players in this entire game.
: 4 ad is that much worth celeberating mate?
-4 AD on a champion whose whole shtick is "autoing you to death" is a big fucking deal.
Toadwart (NA)
: When there is an odd number of players, the game duplicates one of the teams so everyone has an opponent. Its pretty clear to see when you win the match but no damage stuff flies at the opponent. The issue is when it duplicates the top players and then you fight the real person afterward. It seems like you keep playing the same guy and you are to an extent, but its more annoying than it needs to be.
no, It was the full person each time, no clone. I knew this because I had to look at his disgusting username each time (hang [racial slur])
Hoaxed (NA)
: Add mobile version of TFT!!!!
We can reasonably assume that, since they pretty heavily downgraded the graphics on TFT, they are planning a mobile port at some point in time. This is most likely pretty far off though, as the PC version is still extremely shaky and they'll want to get a solid PC playerbase before trying to rope in more people on mobile. Plus, developing a whole app probably won't be that easy.

They interact with the community. The interact with the masses on Reddit and the high elo players on Twitter. This board is a washed up group of angry players, with a total count of no more than 5k. It's a shithole with people looking to go back to the glory days who don't even know what made the glory days good, lmao. Tell that guy to post his link on Reddit. It's pretty decent there, and I'm sure he'll get a hell of a lot more traction. Most of the people who post here just eat paste and complain.
Have you ever considered that maybe the forums aren't popular because riot never interacts with them? I'm not one of those "the reddit is just a pro-riot echo chamber" people, but the existence of the "rant" rule and the "no calls to action rule" make it so that any moderator on that subreddit can remove posts critical of riot without much problem.

Ah yes, I forgot that you name something before deciding how the mechanics work, and not the other way around.
: Someone anyone please tell me how this match was remotely fucking fair
Riot accomplished their intended goal: force a 50/50 chance of winning for either side so that players need to play for longer in order to reach the ranks they want. I would recommend taking this post down, or at least black out the names, or else a moderator will take it down for naming and shaming.

Kanzler (NA)
: I played TFT for the first time today, but there is a major issue with it...
The only things the gamemode needs to be better 1. round robin draft, not this bs "get put with the same guy who counters you three times in a row" 2. give each player an even number of items. No, not "everyone gets close to the same amount of items." the exact same amount of items. Collecting champions for your team comp can be worked around, but items and drafts can't.

I did exactly what you did and got to gold 5, twice (well technically it was 4 the second time). I played on a competitive team against plat and diamond players (for money) and learned as much about the game as I could. I got invited to play on a college level team as a junior in high school. But I can't play the game anymore. The way that matchmaking places you with players who are on losing streaks to force a 50/50 chance of winning is bullshit. It results in me being put with ADCs who can't get more than 4 CS/min, just because I had the audacity to go on a winstreak. This game is broken and it needs fixing, but riot doesn't give a flying fuck.

: You're missing a huge problem. Damage gets you more gold by farming, killing, or destroying turrets, defensive stats don't help unless you're playing {{champion:33}} just because he gets a raw conversion of defensive to offensive stats.
Well, uh, yeah. That's how stats work. It's why tank items are generally cheaper, tanks are loaded with utility, and base damages are generally high (on champions that need to function solo or in jungle) - they are designed to be on a lower budget.

That’s not even close to true. You still get all of your stats. None of them are being taken away. If you build and infinity edge, you are getting 111% of gold in stats. If I build any tank item ever, I have to accept that I’m getting at most 60% efficiency. And it’s not an if they build x. It’s a when they build x. These pen item are in EVERY game, even if there is no tank they, these items are in EVERY game. People like to analyze say void staff as a 57% efficient item. But that’s not even close to true. Removing resistances is the equivalent of removing 1% of the enemies effective hp per resistance. If you have say. 100 mr and they get void staff. You now have 40% less health than before. That’s not even a huge bar to cross.
>That’s not even close to true. You still get all of your stats. None of them are being taken away. the exact same thing applies to tank stats. When you build tank stats, you reduce the worth of their stats. When they build armor pen, the same happens.

I love how you're casually forgetting that, post damage reduction, most offensive items are much less gold efficient as well.

Yets4240 (NA)
: I have done the maths in every thread this has come up in, you are VASTLY overestimating how much armor is required. In fact, it s cost effective at 88 armor. that's it. 46% of all champions have more base armor than that. Literally every single champion with so much as a {{item:3047}} has ***MORE*** than that much armor. I can copy and paste the maths if you would like, or you can find an entire thread on it here: https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/6Vrse1uE-the-maths-behind-armor-penetration-and-why-you-should-build-an-ldr-if-they-have-a-single-tank?comment=000000020000
cost effective =! best item to build at that time of the game many completed items are above 100% gold efficient and those that aren't usually have pretty OP passives. A lot of times those passives give much better utility or general power than armor pen does (depending on the stage of the game).

: I mean doesn't this just mean that armor is garbage and nobody builds it anymore? Except Zhonya, and IBG on ezreal (and ofc tabis) nobody builds armor **Hell this Challenger amumu went full AP?** bruiser in the past used to have 200 armor or more today they have over 3k hp with triforce/sterak/titanic, and nobody except tanks cares about armor in the past, (from season 2 to season 7 nearly) armor pen was CORE on adc, you couldn't build them without it to me, it just shows that there is a problem
No, not necessarily. It means that armor is bad in soloQ because you are trading your own agency for that of your teammates. It's a lot easier to impact a game when you're able to one shot an opponent rather than rely on your ally killing an opponent. It's always been this way. People have been recommending grenade Amumu since season 6.

Rioter Comments
D357R0Y3R (EUW)
: No ADC is building armor penetration, why is this not talked about?
It's not a problem for a few reasons. 1. The champion is a mixed damage champion and doesn't need armor pen (e.g. ezreal, corki, Kai'sa) 2. They didn't get more than a few items before the game ended 3. They're facing a squishy comp. 4. They have a naturally tank-shredding champion like Trundle on their team. It's really easy to get upset and ask "why aren't they building armor pen?????????" but it's a lot harder to look at the enemy comp and think "oh, you don't need armor pen when you're up against {{champion:69}} {{champion:4}} {{champion:145}}{{champion:39}} {{champion:43}} " (FYN Hogane, Caitlyn game)
