: There is a severe lack of basic/miniscule knowledge in League Lore
Azadethe (NA)
: lulz. Either says 1) you've never played these champs: {{champion:143}} {{champion:115}} {{champion:161}} {{champion:45}} {{champion:8}} {{champion:13}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:16}} {{champion:76}} {{champion:25}} {{champion:99}} {{champion:236}} {{champion:427}} {{champion:69}} {{champion:28}} {{champion:60}} {{champion:63}} ALL of which have no escape vs a Garen, most of which Garen outheals their damage as it happens, get silenced into oblivion, and facetanked by some 600 + move speed, because of {{item:3800}} {{item:3742}} , his Q, and possibly {{item:3142}} Without Rylai's they literally have no actual counterplay, because their slows last less than .3 seconds versus Garen's W. Oh. And most of these champs have skill delays on their skills of .3-.5 seconds, which literally gives Garen time to face tank them before the skills hit, landing his Silence.
Logged in just to comment Vel'koz can escape almost anyone, or at least kite almost anyone. Rylais is a waste on him due to the low cooldown of his Q, which is a slow, as they don't stack

I've been here since 2008-2009, I come back and see things that horrify my and I can't help but comment. I hope these things are trolls. If not, sad, but then again - nothing new.
: Kai'Sa isn't even on PBE yet and all of the QQ here is unreal
You forgot to mention that she's "generic LoL beautiful" and how problematic that is. Lawls.
: My biggest problem with Kai'sa it's not that she's beautiful - she's LoL generic beautiful.
Good lord. What does it really matter? Now think about that for a second. What. Does. It. Really. Matter. The game could be 3D block objects shooting shit at each other and we would probably still play. I mean, you can't really tell in game. So all you really have to complain about is the splash art. Honestly. If this is what bothers you in life, you have it pretty god damn good. Good job
: Congratulations... :(
: The A**hole that did the SWATting that got an innocent man killed was arrested
The kid is a problem, yes. But the biggest issue here is that this man was killed. The SWAT team is not taking any responsibility for their shoot first, ask questions later policies.

: My condolences. I'm in the same boat... my grandmother passed away in December from cancer. So it really hits home when someone says shit like that. It really does. Stay strong. :)
In 2015, my little brother was shot and killed. In 2015, one of my friends died from an overdose. In 2014, my great grandma who was essentially my mother passed away. In 2013, my great grandpa who was essentially my father passed away. In 2012, my best friend Greg committed suicide using opiates. My early childhood began with my biological father committing suicide. Part of life is loss, and it can hurt when its brought up, but in a place like the internet where no one really has any personal information on you, they're just tossing out generalized bullshit to see where it sticks. It's nothing more than that.
: please don't say my parents have cancer when they actually do
Yeah, like ABCA98, I am sorry about your situation. Unfortunately, part of the nature of being alive and being human is both being aware of the losses we are going to take, and having to suffer through them. Death is a natural part of life. It really, really sucks - but at least once your parents are gone they won't be suffering with their disease any longer. But yes, asking for a little respect is asking too much. No one really owes you any kind of kindness - though we come to expect it. On the streets, maybe it would be different, I doubt they'd say anything to you. But I will give you some invaluable words of wisdom - the world is never going to put down its sword - so you're going to need a shield. Or some armor. The only thing you are responsible for is how you react to the world, not how the rest of the world acts. Sorry, chief. Just part of growing up.
5050BS (NA)
: But he needs nerfs. to have his Ult do True damage was stupid (as is with all true damage abilities.
No, he doesn't. He's in a perfectly balanced state right now. I played Velkoz before the mage rework, and I played him during the time his ult didn't apply his passive stacks. He did almost nothing. He relies on that passive. "He needs nerfs" If your opinion of one of the most balanced champions in the game is that he needs nerfs, I hate to see what you think of other champions.
: Vel'koz needs nerfs about as much as Xerath does. Which is not at all. They're balanced by being stupid easy to play. Of course they're going to have high win rates.
Neither of them have high win rates.
: yes there is something you can do bully the support and the adc with thunderlord, basic attacks that somehow deals a lot of damage and "if they're good at dodging skillshots" it doesn't matter, your mana costs are as low as the work of the balance team and dodging Q is a lot harder than what people think if you're having troubles with vel'koz support, that means you're playing against an other mage support or karma who's as strong as them
I never have an issue in my lane when I play against a support Vel'koz.
: vel'koz still needs nerfs not on his ulti or his E but on his laning phase, along with all those supposed "support" mages {{champion:143}} {{champion:90}} {{champion:63}} that are bullying the fuck out of both adc and traditional supports either this or buff traditional supports to be able to trade with them+{{champion:43}} you definitly need to play bot lane friend, to see the mess that is happening right now
I play mid and support Vel'koz, and if the support I am facing is good, they can keep me from bullying out the ADC. Or if the enemy ADC is good at dodging skillshots, there's not much I can do.
Dynikus (NA)
: Where on earth did you find these, and why didn't you question the validity of them the second you saw them? It shows his E damage being lowered to 10-50, when his current _level 1_ e does 70.
I'm in a Vel'koz mains clan thing and it was in chat, and it was four or five AM. Things happened.
Meddler (NA)
: No idea where you're finding those supposed changes, but they're certainly not something we're doing.
Thank god. I would rather be some idiot who got trolled than have my absolutely favorite champion destroyed like that. Thanks for the quick response. I don't normally fall for trolls like that - but Vel'koz is very near and dear to my heart. My little brother played this game with me, I got him into it when he was 14. He died when he was 17 - his favorite mage to play was Vel'koz, whenever he wasn't playing with me because I hogged mid. So I got into playing him because of that. So I was a little emotional. I apologize.

I can say with certainty that dynamic queue was a uniting scapegoat for many people. This statement alone shows just how negatively dynamic queue impacted the game. There have been very few things that have united the community against something in league to the extent that dynamic queue has. The hate for solo queue could never do this. The hate for the promotion system could never do this. The hate for Elo hell could never do this. Dynamic queue was unique in the magnitude of players it was able to unite against it. That is just how negatively it impacted league.
Nah, it just shows that all people need is a safe space to vent their negativity and frustrations, and the complaint threads about DQ - on Reddit or these boards, were often started by the same people. And then others latched onto it. The hate for solo queue is tempered by the fact that when people go to the boards to bitch about solo queue, they're usually tossed down. The only negative impact dynamic queue had, has little evidence beyond anecdotes to prove it. Unless Riot comes out with compiled statistics, my points stand.
: The amount of qq for dynamic queue was far more than anything solo queue had. If dynamic queue was just another scapegoat, why the hell were there so many more people complaining about it? Dynamic queue was universally panned across every league related outlet. Solo queue, on the other hand, only gets a small fraction of the hate and overall has a positive reception compared to dynamic queue.
[Citation needed] I've played the game since a couple weeks after open beta started. I can say with certainty that dynamic queue was a uniting scapegoat for many people. A few people started complaining about it, and others, who felt slighted for whatever reason latched onto it like a bunch of remora on a shark. This meant they had a place to go to vent their frustrations without someone saying, "git gud scrub noob". Whereas most complaints would have been played out in game, or amongst friends otherwise. I understand you have an emotional attachment to your ideas here, but you need to take a step back and remove your own emotions from the equation. Emotional reactionaries are hardly ever right. In any situation.
: And yet enough people left the game that it forced riot to reinstate solo queue. That alone shows you just how much people hated dynamic queue. It wasn't just about the vocal minority who openly posted hate about dynamic queue, they are not significant enough to make riot do anything. The problem was that the silent majority also reacted negatively to dynamic queue forcing riot to change their direction and reinstate solo queue.
Did a huge number of people really leave the game because of Dynamic queue? Or did they leave the game because they've been playing the same game for nearly a decade now and it was time to move on to something else? Maybe it was because Overwatch came out? That drew many of my friends who played - and it had nothing to do with dynamic queue. What you're doing here is prescribing intentionality to people based on your own intent. The world doesn't work that way. You can't say anything of the silent majority - they are silent, and their actions are unknown. You can only speak for yourself, and what you see on the boards. That's it.
: a huge majority of the players complained right away about DQ and those were the solo players, who got flooded by premades all of the sudden as the storm went on, things calmed down, when riot annonced the changes, to limit the amount of premade players in ranked in the higher tier they are fixing it, so ofc players wont complain as much
"A huge majority of players complained right away" Define huge, please. Because the people complaining on the boards are a teeny, tiny minority of the sum total of League players, the players on Reddit are also a tiny minority, and the streamers are an even smaller minority still. "Flooded by premades all of the sudden" is largely up to their own perception, and their inability to accept any blame for their own failures. Sorry, bud.
: There is a pretty big difference in the amount of qq when the system works and when it doesn't. Servers messing up? No one gives a shit about how bad ranked is. Champion xyz (I.e. Yasuo) overpowered? All of a sudden threads about ranked get buried about ranked. The only reason there has been so much qq about ranked is because of dynamic queue compounding the innate problems with ranked. Before dynamic queue, threads about ranked got buried by qq threads about other things except after the rank soft resets. There are so many problems with league that the problems with solo queue were not always front and center. Dynamic queue, on the other hand, was so bad that it completely drowned out everything else because it took priority.
Dynamic queue was just another scapegoat. Sorry, bud. The "QQ" has always been there, and will always be there. And even then, only an extreme minority of League players complained about dynamic queue in the first place.

There is no argument to be had with emotional reactionaries such as yourself. I'd have more luck arguing with a water fountain.
: I'm confident having Duos with Solo will just hurt the FlexQ which might even lead to us reverting entirely to solo/duo and 5's. With other words, all will have been for nothing, nothing will have become achieved and we'll be stepping on the people who really like DQ. Why not just make the experiences mutually exclusive and fully available? Makes too much sense? Can someone please explain this to me?
Because people, presumably unlike yourself, have friends they like to play the video game with. Time to get over it, chief.

Exactly. Most of the issues people are complaining about (smurfs, boosted players, zero communication, raging teammates) existed way before dynamic queue was ever an idea. I don't care if they remove dynamic queue, since I don't really play with multiple people in ranked, but people will just find another excuse for why they can't climb. It's been the same old song ever since ranked came out.
Yep, the song will be sung in the next big game too. It's just how people operate. They need a scapegoat for their own failures.
: Don't need to blame something if there is nothing wrong with the system. There are obviously problems in solo queue as well but they are far less than dynamic queue so people will be far less inclined to qq about ranked.
"Don't need to blame something if there is nothing wrong with the system." That is ridiculous. People were complaining about various other scenarios before DQ came about, and they'll keep complaining about it. It has nothing to do with the system being broken, but the human ego being broken. "People will be far less inclined to QQ about ranked" LOL Maybe on the forums, but you and I both know the amount of complaining between solo/duo queue and dynamic queue was relatively the same - they were just complaining about the noobs and feeders, doing anything they could to shift the blame for them being lower ranked they believe they should have been away from themselves.
: isnt that kinda boosting ? if they were below you , in theory regardless though, this season was a big mess, or simply said a clown fiesta edit: i was being sarcastic , take a hint >_<
Uh, he was implying I was boosted. And no, it wasn't boosting. I am not that good that I can carry someone every game, a lot of games they caused us to lose.

The only people defending DQ are boosted people like yourself.
Lol, typical. I earned my spot like the majority of people in ranked did, thanks. The people I play with were either on my skill level or below it.
: I'm literally so hyped for Solo/Duo Q
Are you sure you're hyped for it? What are you going to blame your failures on after you're no longer playing in dynamic queue? The champions you played against? Your teammates? Anyone but yourself, right?
: Does anyone feel like Ryze is overtuned?
Despite your downvotes, I feel that same way too. Three shotting me playing Vel'koz who annihilated the early game feels a bit ridiculous. On top of shields from archangel and the movement speed boost he has, it's just too easy to do that much damage on him.
: why do you main your mains
{{champion:161}} Was my little brothers favorite champion - and my favorite champion. After he died, I kind of just kept up with him and I would say I'm a pretty decent Vel'Koz now. Also, because he's really fun.
: grow up about skt being the best.
Grow up about that formatting, damn, dog.
: I genuinely feel bad for any nice people who main...
I mean, stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason. For instance, the only Katarina mains I've ever come across - especially the ones with Katarina or "Kat" in their names, have just been enormous dicks. You know the kind of guy, who will try to "tilt" his opponents in chat in freaking normals of all places to do such a thing. They spam their mastery emote blah blah.

Well, I don't know about the absolute two best teams in the world. Yes, teams didn't deserve to move on, but the format of the first games everyone played was stupid, and allowed luck to be too much of a factor.

: Karthus has a 1% pickrate
Eh, same thing with dynamic queue. Suddenly everyone is diamond and it's the four people trolling them every single game is why they lost! A hurp la durp. Next season, these people will still suck just like the rest of us. And no one will still be playing Karthus.
: Why is it a problem that assassins kill you "in less than 3 seconds" but it's not when mages do it?
The difference is - For an immobile mage: _I shouldn't have hit you_ For an assassin:_ I shouldn't be anywhere in lane away from my team _ Do you see the issue with that? I've been seeing quite a bit of Katarina one tricks and Rengar's lately, and really, all they need is a couple kills and they will snowball beyond control. The only skill involved is knowing when to go in - and if they're fed enough, it doesn't really matter. For many champions, there is no way to counter a Katarina or a Rengar. These champions are simply not fun to play against. For mages, most times(Except in cases like Syndra) there is some level of counterplay. You can move around the skill shots and then kill them while they are waiting on cooldowns. For assassins - you die. That's about it.
: same, after i checked a couple of profiles its blocked. it annoys the hell out of me, since you have to relogg to fix it.
Yeah, I like looking at my own profile after a win or a loss - or the profiles of my fellow players after a game just to see what I was up against. Really obnoxious. This is a new bug.

: Best thing about TSM not making it out of Quarters
I don't think anyone can be embarrassed by the absolute best, the top of the game. It's almost a forgone conclusion. The only thing anyone can do against a team like SKT is surprise.
: Xerath Vs. Vel'koz... who's better?
Vel'koz, IMO, who is the best immobile mage in the game. You can hit from weird angles - and if you do manage to land your full combo, you will devastate people. Even if you miss your ult initially, you can always swivel to do SOME damage, maybe even get a full combo of his passive off - if you whiff on Xerath, which is easy to do, well, that's just another cooldown wasted. Vel'Koz also isn't super item dependent. He has high base damages, and that scaling true damage passive. Immobile mages are very reliant on your team to not be doing crappy, but even then you can carry with Vel'Koz - you can turn entire fights around with a well placed knockup+w+ult combo, saving q for fleeing stragglers. Then again, I am extremely biased at this point. I've played several hundred games of Vel'Koz the past few months. Also, to the below poster, Vel'Koz is not reliant on Rylais, so if it gets removed this coming pre-season, he is not harmed in the least.
