: Nexus Blitz - Week 4 Feedback and Patch Notes
: Can I play league in Chinese
I'm not sure, Korean works indirectly by using the Korean client and then changing the system.yaml file to use the NA server on top of the Korean client, I would assume that you COULD possibly install the Chinese client and try changing that but I'm skeptical it would work since China updates on a completely different schedule from that of Riot and Garena servers, and the client in China may be functionally different.

: >nonbiased > {{champion:238}} - has to land every single q after ulting to kill you unless you have literally 300 hp and no summoners and are standing still Okay, so zed has to play it flawlessly after ulting, I don't agree, but what are your other examples? >{{champion:43}} press empowered q as a full ap champ ????????? >{{champion:114}} has to ulti you and then proc every vital How is this a one shot? She has to run you down...
I mean the Karma one is definitely doable since the total AP Ratio of the RQ is 150%. Still, it takes a lot of AP and tears to get to that point, and because it can usually be soaked up by a frontline, gaming for REs is usually bettter.
: for anyone down voting please explain why you feel this shouldn't be in the game. It's necessary to help people who sometimes forget to swap summoner spells and doesn't do anything negative to gameplay. I would just like to hear your thought process that is all
Because then it deactivates the agency that summoner spells bring. For example, a Lux mid goes ignite instead of something like Barrier. Why would the Anivia not switch to Cleanse? Or perhaps an aggressive player notes the enemy toplaner doesn't have TP, then they are not obligated to use TP either. Summoner spell choice should be a strategic choice in champ select and the game starts as soon as you press the Accept button for the queue. Focus on your rune set-up and check everything in the minutes that you have before the game starts

Rioter Comments
: Yasuo: At 42% winrate. He was at least 2-3% below the second-weakest person in the game. Karma: 44-45% winrate. Not good by any means, but actually not the weakest either. She can last until the patch. Your statement would be accurate if they had the same winrate. But Yasuo was quite objectively the worst champion in the game. Currently, Tristana is slightly worse than Karma, however.
Rioter Comments
: When {{champion:157}} is weak: Gets hotfixed immediately. When {{champion:43}} is weak: Gets nerfed even more. I hate Riot's favoritism. {{sticker:sg-shisa}}
I'm just going to interject as a Karma main and say that Karma is a lot more problematic in higher tier than Yasuo ever was. Yasuo was worthy of a hotfix because he was terrible and his issues were easy to fix. Karma? not so much.
: Karma gets fucked once again " I disrupted my meditation for this?!" {{champion:43}}
: It's completely fair. He doesn't do anything to change them and creates them. He just solves problems by creating 2 more.
The balance team is not 1 man, the balance team is a team. That team is also reliant on other departments to function.
Rioter Comments
: But this {{champion:157}} was compensated on the spot. Let that sink in.
Hi, Karma main here. Yasuo when 8.11 hit live was unbelievably terrible, and the buffs were fully justifiable because unlike Karma, A. Yasuo is not problematic in pro play, and B. Yasuo's problems that caused his weaknesses were incredibly straight forward, since his issue was damage scaling due to IE being reworked. I would like compen buffs to tide us over, but that doesn't seem too likely at this point.
: Fizz? Fizz is a bad pick? What?
No lane priority unless enemy is retarded, your waveclear sucks and you will almost get shoved in by any competent laner.

N63 (NA)
: Pantheon needs a rework.
Yeah he's a bit of a problematic champion, given the scope of his kit and how rather dated he is. He (and Morde) are the last champs with ridiculous feet.
: mf recommended item change is bad
Lethality is better vs squishy targets, 100 armour doesn't necessarily equate to squishy though.
: Why is Yasuo getting hotfix buffed after a single day?
The winrate in Plat+ is 44% for both, which is abysmal for any champion unless they were a new addition to the cast. Most champions in that range get a hotfix after a major patch hits.
Taylor D (NA)
: Why does Nimbus Cloak get auto swapped on Jayce?
He already gets bonus movement speed from his passive when he switches from Hammer to Cannon, or vice versa
: Curious question. How are the crit changes affecting Yasuo?
His winrate has fallen nearly 5% from 48.5% to 43.5%, save your ban for someone else. I don't think Yasuo was ever permaban worthy though.
: To be fair, Kalista has exactly two things that separate her from "generic clickbot v19". The ally mechanic, which is really neat and I'd actually like them to see play up at some point, but is currently played down. And her hops, which is the main skill mechanic and her identity that she's focused around, but is **raw unfiltered cancer** to play against when it's strong, so they had to nerf it to where it's basically not even there. I feel *bad* for Kalista players, but at the same time, her design is around the toxicity of pre-rework Poppy. I think if they just *removed* the hops (they're not integral to her lore, or her gameplay pattern, they're just 'there') they could focus her around the ally mechanic significantly more, but I don't know how *attached* people are to her hops.
Balancing around the ally mechanics are by far the worst thing that Riot has done to this champion, and making them the central part of her kit will just make Kalista even worse in Solo Q. Fate's Call, and Sentinel's passive are terrible design. Kalista will have 0 agency to use them in Solo Q when her support is bad/ non-cooperative, and it will just make her more oppressive in a duo lane with communication, Kalista is nigh impossible to lane against when her support is good. Buffing those aspects will just make it worse.
: After three hours, this post has not received a single upvote.
: Just give her actual mana costs. Right now she can basically spam q and w until her first back with zero thought or reprecussions.
The W mana cost is actually pretty high IMO
: Another Yasou thread. (though actually not QQ!)
I think that an update at hand should not prioritize his core kit, but change how his across power elo structure. Bronze and Silver Yasuo players should be more punishable, whereas Platinum and Diamond Yasuos should have greater ease getting him to a spot where he needs to be for his team.

And every single one of those champions is an absolute terror to deal with, and utterly unkillable, if you do not apply Grievous Wounds to them. They will stomp you into the ground without much room for retaliation because of the high HP and absurd damage they can do. So sure, it hurts them, but the alternative is to watch them steamroll all over you with no chance of fighting back.
They have significant weaknesses that can be attributed to the nature of their kits. Darius, Illaoi,and Volibear can be kited, Vladimir has very low lane priority, Aatrox has been a meme for a while. They aren't unkillable, and they have an alternative playstyle that is harder to counter because it's not a common norm.

Progress on Karma seems to be pretty slow, especially since the discussions that were promised for the beginning of the year last year has been pushed back to an indefinite period of time. Until then, can we have a little buff to tide us over? Especially with the removal of Ultimate Hat, and the nerf to Banner? Thanks.

Lmaooo says the Karma main who only climbed elo from abusing a broken champion. Cause shielding yourself, stunning a laner who can’t outrun you because of the ms buff, then nuking them with 1 spirit fire is at all skilled.
I hit Plat off of Kalista and Elise last season. They're both dumpster fires of champions, and Karma is too. Guess you should say that Lulu and Janna are complete ape shit because Lulu legit can have permashield and Janna has 3 disengage tools. Talk to the real men who can actually play Yasuo instead of the kids mindlessly facerolling till their brain starts rotting. All honesty, you're the only one laughing at me, everyone else is laughing at you.

Karma is an easy champion with a respectable skill ceiling, she has an extremely hard time succeeding without dreadful Silver Yasuo mains who are seen as a complete doofus by those within the Yasuo community running it down into her Qs and fighting her in full creep waves.

: Flash is a Crutch
There are quite a few champs that often forgo flash in favour of things like Ghost. Biggest example is things like Olaf, Shaco, and Singed. Some odd cases with stuff like Warwick, but in general it's not 100% needed on every member of the cast.

Azadethe (NA)
: her W has the highest consistent scaling of any ability she has.... E or Q basically means you are a long range nuker who doesn't fully utilize her fully. P.S. The root is THREE Seconds if you ult it.
While true, Karma players usually max W last which leaves the base root and damage pretty lackluster. There also usually is better value in RQ if you're playing her as a dedicated mage, or RE as a support. RW is more for a tank playstyle, in which case you're not really getting the benefit of the AP scaling.

That takes a TON of skill. (about her upper limit) Karma is just broken. I've seen her in too many games just destroy everyone around her. Being plat by maining a utility abuse champion,whose power is way to overboard since level 1 is really just boosted. As for this "plat", I've played enough games with him to know he is only good with select champions and I've seen him get crushed while I carried him. So shh.
Do you honestly believe I try hard when I played with you? I'm TRYING TO HELP YOU LEARN BY BEING CONSISTENT, BUT NOT STOMP EVERYONE. Do you think anyone did? Like LaChinx when he was 1v1ing you with a Zeal while you were on PD and YOU STILL LOST and your excuse was "I threw" even though gold income in ARAM is so high that it doesn't matter at all. You are so unfathomably bad in lane without constant babysitting that the only reason that you're not in Bronze is because I legit have to spam RE. Here's a list of the past 10 games I've played with you on my smurf: https://matchhistory.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/NA1/2783951247/231354907?tab=overview https://matchhistory.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/NA1/2783725528/231354907?tab=overview https://matchhistory.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/NA1/2783722289/231354907?tab=overview https://matchhistory.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/NA1/2779648152/231354907?tab=overview https://matchhistory.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/NA1/2778297390/231354907?tab=overview https://matchhistory.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/NA1/2778310822/231354907?tab=overview https://matchhistory.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/NA1/2778284109/231354907?tab=overview https://matchhistory.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/NA1/2778226919/231354907?tab=overview https://matchhistory.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/NA1/2778177693/231354907?tab=overview https://matchhistory.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/NA1/2776139879/231354907?tab=overview In nearly every midlane game I play with you, I outperform and out DPS you while you go off trying to get that 0/10 powerspike, and completely throwing a couple games. I actually sometimes completely outdamage you with support itemization on a support income because you're not doing anything. You're actually 100% the teammates that you say you have (inting junglers), but you actually die more often than them. So who's the real inter now? If anything, you are abusing a champion that is busted in Silver because no one knows how to play against him, but you're still losing. Yasuo is flat out the best champs to climb in Silver because his winrate is over 52% in your elo range, and his pickrate is extremely high. Face the facts, you're not good at the game. Karma is not broken, you just flat out don't know how to play against her. Karma's winrate globally is 47% with a much lower playrate than Yasuo, and she's ranked 117 out of 140 on the global tierlist on LoLalytics. She's in the bottom 20% of champs in terms of Solo Q strength. The video evidence speaks for itself. You can't just bruteforce every fight in League and hope to win. You actually have to play with skill and intelligent play, which you clearly lack.
