: Since I get a lot of flame for it, what are your thoughts on Lane Kayn?
Here's the thing. Lane Kayn is actually SUPER FUCKING GOOD. People think it's bad because his kill potential pre-form is bad... but as long as you're trading well you can go 0-4 in lane and STILL landslide the game in your favor once you get form.... which you do WAY earlier in lane. Pre-blue kayn nerfs I use to only play Kayn mid. constantly carrying games even if I went 0/4 in lane.

His Q doesnt have "no mana" cost, its actually quite high hence why GP has to start corrupting potion AND take biscuits in order to not go oom quickly. If im remembering right, his last nerfs were at his Q mana cost. The main change/nerf needed is on Grasp, it needs to detect what type of attack proc'd it and calculate damage and sustain off that, not champion type. So GP auto attack procs it? That's melee, full damage and heal. Gp Q procs it? That's ranged, whatever the nerfed heal and damage are. GP is the only melee champ who applies on hits with a ranged attack, that comes to mind anyway, so he should be the only one impacted. BOOM fixed

{{champion:122}} for the life of me I just don't darius. I fully understand his kit and what he does, but I can't play him and I can't lane against him. darius as the enemy: 1 shots you, heals 90% hp off his Q at lvl 1. me as darius: gets 1 shot, heals -500 hp with q even hitting the outer edge.

: Honestly, no. The client is terrible, but everything about this game is very unfriendly to newbies. Back when I started the game was new so smurfing wasn't really a thing, everyone was trying to figure out this new and interesting game so there was no such thing as meta and standard builds. Hell, one game I went AP Ashe mid because she only had AP scaling and it actually worked pretty well. No one raged, my ult was a flying guillotine and we all had fun. These days I'd have been raged at and reported. Honestly probably wouldn't have finished the game.

Don't know why, I'm not doing bad there, I'm just not enjoying it anymore. Because they've nerfed all the jungle items to the point that there's no advantage in actually taking them. You're actually hurting yourself by doing so except you have to have one for the champion smites. You also can't play support jg anymore since they removed the jungle ward item. They've done everything they can to ensure that jg has as little impact on the game as possible. If you gank a lane and succeed, great... your team gets a small advantage. If you gank a lane and fail, you just fucked that lane and put yourself behind on xp and your team will never recover. It's like 4x more punishing now. Which makes jungling feel like a struggle at every point of the game.

That's not the way it works. You hover a champion you would like to play, then you ban. Then people place their actual picks. Eventually it gets to you, if the champion you were hovering was picked by ANYONE ELSE, you wont be able to select that champion. Simple fix to your juvenile issue: Mark champs you enjoy playing as favorite then sort by favorites. Even if someone takes the champ you wanted to play you'll have your back up right there and ready.

I'm fine with streamers being used to advertise. I often watch people play games I'm interested in. What I'm not okay with is streamers getting the game a day early. It ruins a lot of the fun for everyone else. Imagine if WoW started letting streamers do the raids a day early. There's no more race to world first because streamers have privilege. It's the same with everything else.

Annoying that the game isn't even out yet and you can already find "SEKIRO SHADOWS DIE TWICE BEST BUILD DAY 1" all over youtube before the game is even fucking out... not to mention you can't watch twitch because half the streamers are streaming it. Makes it impossible to go in to a game blind anymore which ruins half the fun.

Your friend is just contributing to the toxic atmosphere by encouraging people with no clue what they're doing to play the only competitive mode this game has. If you really insist on jumping straight into ranked then play ranked flex. Here you'll find the best and the worst players in one match so you'll arguably learn more than playing against people at your own skill level (ranked solo/duo).
