: You mean all the autofill top players rejoice, the go-to braindead hypertank is coming back ? ...Yay Revert Shen
I'd hardly call this new Shen braindead. He has less base stats than most ADCs, let alone fighters and tanks. His energy costs have to be managed unlike other energy champions, and his ultimate is utter garbage if you try to use it for its intended purpose of saving low health allies. Old Shen also had lane sustain, which they completely gimped. New Shen post-nerfs is much harder to win lane with than Vorpal Blade Shen. Source: Shen main for 5 years here. I think I have enough experience one tricking him to have a reasonable grasp on him.
: Renekton is really unfun to play against
With Renekton it's about picking your battles. He will generally push the lane up and you'll have to be babysat by your turret. If he dashes in for a combo, use any CC you have to trap him under turret. When I used to play Shen against him, I would wait until the wave was near or under my turret to CS, because Renekton is oppressive against someone with low base stats and little to no sustain in lane. I could sometimes put him in a situation where he either backs off, or risks getting caught getting pummeled by both my turret and myself. To be fair, though, Shen's W is a wonderful anti-stun tool against Renekton, as it negates everything but his Q in terms of damage. Renekton is annoying to play against and you have to try much harder to deny him a snowball than the normal top lane roster. Utilizing your jungler's presence can help, too, if you have any kill pressure. If not, get your carries fed and watch him blow up in team fights where he gets chain-CC'd and rendered useless.
: I'm both terrified and hyped about the Morde rework. On one hand, he can't possibly be any worse than he is now. But on the other, i love the buggy piece of shit that he is, and i dont want him to lose his identity.
Malicious Metal playtested him and vouched that he was amazing. If Malicious Metal himself says this, you have nothing to worry about my friend.

: I really miss tanks
What Riot fails to achieve when it comes to balance is making tanks win fights not by out-damaging, but by OUTLIVING opponents. Let me put this into an example to demonstrate my point. {{champion:92}} meets {{champion:98}} in the top lane (we're talking season 5 and 6 scenarios here). Riven has an explosive level 1-2. She tries to go aggressive, but Shen keeps his distance, losing out on a bit of XP but the wave pushes towards him. He lives until level 3, when he hits a small power spike in trading potential. While farming near his turret, Riven tries to poke him with abilities. She slips up, not realizing that she's pushed up and that the enemy jungler has flanked her and blocked off her means of escape. Shen taunts her and she dies. 5 minutes later in lane, Shen has a gold lead. He has bought himself {{item:3068}} because he has been CSing and he is level 7, having ganked bot lane and teleporting back top just in time to save his turret. Riven has a {{item:3077}} and is dishing out much more damage than if she had bought any other item. However, while using her combo she is about to use her 3rd Q to knock him up for the combo when Shen responds with a swift taunt, pulling his spirit sword through her and whittling her down. Riven tries to reciprocate, but she has lost her opportunity to deal damage and her cooldowns, while relatively short compared to other champions, will not come back up in time for her to be able to break through Shen's bulk. Shen wins the trade, and Riven is forced to either flee or die, because she cannot kill Shen before he kills her with another round of empowered autos, because she has little to no bulk being a fighter and not a tank. ######(Sorry for using Shen as an example, every other tank champion I've played top against Riven has insane disruption and/or complainable amounts of damage.) Nowadays, the game has seen hits to survivability, significant buffs to damage, and as a result tanks have become "your damage scales with tankiness or you are irrelevent." Assassins and burst mages used to be the only champions that could throw out a combo (usually when fed) and kill their squishy targets with ease. However, now that is no longer unique to the class, they just do it so fast the game has become uninteractive. Everyone has become Rengar.

The general idea is that if there's a shitshow, don't go knee-deep into it. Because when mods come by to clean it up, you'll get swept up too.
: anyone have this
I marathoned ranked for a week once. I finally left the house and I found myself, while climbing a flight of stairs, thinking about reality in why we haven't found more creative ways to kill each other and win the game. I found myself having a hard time letting go of the fact that actual people do not have summoner spells like ignite and flash, and that Renekton should have been arrested a long time ago. Needless to say, I took a break from League after that.

: What is the WORST game of LoL you've ever played?
Top lane Shen (are you surprised?). I was against a Darius. Naturally, I went for my defensive set, right? Kite him, sustain back, rinse and repeat, survive laning phase. My dumb ass took support runes that focused on mana regen. On Shen. AN ENERGY CHAMPION. Needless to say, as an inherently squishy tank with no defensive runes, the enemy Xin Zhao and Darius proceeded to get kills off me wherever I went. When I ganked bot lane, they got two turrets in less than 3 minutes. They were at inhib turret by the time I recalled. I ended up something like 0/14/2. The worst part is we were winning until, again, my dumbass for some reason built Randuin's against a mostly spell-casting comp, so I got destroyed for not having HP/MR. When the enemy team said 'gg ez,' I agreed with them. I proceeded to push myself away from my desk, bury my face in my hands, and question my sanity. I thought to myself that I must take a break so that this doesn't happen again. I'm tired, I need to refresh myself. Before I knew it, I was in queue again.
: Can we get a "Save this board" option?
Great idea! It would increase usability, although I'm not sure if we have the tech for that.

: People are disappointed with Ezreal and Kayle/Morg since with just about every VGU before them, all or at least some of the low-tier skins got all new effects and sometimes even voicelines, and now Riot's taken a new stand on VGU's where they don't want to give VGU skins new effects that they didn't have before the rework. Understandable disappointment.
I mean, I guess Shen and Fiora just set a standard they wanted to follow.

Now I know that I blink for approximately 3.47 seconds.
: > I'm sorry to say it, but the difference is like night and day. Previous Kayle **could weather a beating with that armor**. Current Kayle would get impaled on the first strike. Ok I'm gonna have to stop ya there. If you haven't noticed Kayle isn't a tank, she's one of the squishiest champions in the whole game who's reliant on her ult to not get blown up in .5 seconds so why does it make sense for her to look like she's supposed to take a hit. Imagine if Twitch or Vayne were walking around in full plate armor. Also don't forget she also has always been exposed however splashes also do a very good job at hiding the fact her abdomen (the part you'd probably get impaled), elbows, and thighs are covered in cloth. I'm not saying her current armor looks good, especially in the splash art, but saying Kayle should be wearing full armor because she always has is a bad mindset to be in.

I'll give you that the armor isn't practical and doesn't make much sense for her gameplay-wise (except if you consider she needs extra protection against the gods and legends she's fighting against). However, it was her identity and the reason players liked her. Does it make much sense for Poppy to be able to swing such a giant hammer? Is it practical for Garen to have pauldrons the size of his actual torso? Why is Akali's back exposed at all? These are questions we can ask ourselves, but does it really matter if it makes us love the champion even more because that's who they always were? People like Kayle because she wore this awesome suit of armor and sometimes people would mistake her for a dude on first glance. It was the Samus effect, and people ate it up. Now the people who liked Kayle for her identity are suddenly alienated in favor of another Fiora archetype who wears the latex body suit but seemingly forgot to wear the armor on top in some areas. For her character, it makes even less sense because she's wearing shoulder armor and leg armor, but really nothing else that's remotely protective, and her thighs are exposed in such an awkward, unnatural way. That's not the Kayle players know and love.

: Okay a pro team was warned for "discriminating" females by banning their mains but
If they wanted to do female representation in LCS right, they would find any challenger or master-tier players that happen to be female (not sure if they exist, I haven't checked) and include them on a team. Sure, it could be weird at first, but if done right it could be the first step to showing female players that League of Legends pro play is made for pros of all sizes and shapes (but not age, sorry older guys).
