That is such an awesome mode. It is fun and it also REALLY helped me learn to play a bunch of assassins. Most of them I was awful at before but now some of them are my best champs just because I got to learn how to play them in Blood Moon. I assumed it was just a once a year during the made up holiday of Blood Moon sort of game mode. Would suck if it never comes back.
: I'm really surprised that Nexus blitz is never coming back
I played NB non stop in place of ARAM while it was available. I didn't care for it the first few times I played it and I believe the start of it also coincided with Christmas last year and I travel for Christmas so don't play but then I got really into it. I don't remember the queue time ever being very long. TFT on the other hand can fuck right off. Played it a few times but it isn't something I ever see myself having any interest in. So boring. I don't understand the appeal. It is fine if Riot doesn't want to have other game modes up permanently to dilute their main game but at least bring back weekend game modes. I would even kill for Ascension. It is just fun to have a no stress game mode where you can play your favorite champ or try out a new champ without worrying what lane you are in or what your rank is or how well you can play the champ. Doesn't have to be up all the time but Friday-Monday would be cool. I don't even play SR anymore because I find it boring and people take it too seriously. But I play ARAM pretty much daily and still invest money into the game. Would be nice to just have something new now and then to keep things from getting stale.
: All characters unlocked in ARAM
There is nothing wrong with ARAM. Why do people keep complaining about the champs they are facing? There is no such thing as a bad ARAM champion. Only a champion that you aren't good at or might be someone countered by the enemy team. I own all the champions. There are maybe 20 of them that I am really bad at or I hate or just haven't learned yet. I don't feel at all gimped by owning all the champs and rarely am forced to play something I really don't want to play.
: arurf
Cannon is awesome. I thought there were bans last time, no? Current random URF is more fun IMO. Sucks when people can just play their OP mains all day and no one has a chance against them. At least the random evens the playing field a little bit. Only version of URF I really liked in the past was the one with the snowballs that went across the map. That was pretty fun.
cabbysb (NA)
: Katarina absolutely, positively, does not need a damage buff in ARAM
As I said when they first started buffing/nerfing champions in ARAM they are going about it in a completely idiotic way. Champions like Kat probably have a lower win rate because people don't know WTF they are doing and she isn't a champ you can just easily pick up with no experience and play well. Buffing her damage or reducing the damage she takes probably won't do much to help a person that has never played her before but will make a Kat main even more of a god. The person who is messing with ARAM balance doesn't know wtf they are doing and should probably be fired.
: I hope TFT fails
I think it is a really dumb game and my father would be spinning in his grave for them to even attach the word chess to a game with so much chance and randomness involved (if he was in fact in a grave and not scattered over the ocean).
: Riot Broke their game again it seems
Just finished a game and chat was down after the game. So I logged out to see if it would help and now I can't even get the game to load up. Keep clicking it on my desktop, it starts the process of opening up, and then nothing. Client doesn't even open. Getting annoying.
: I refuse to play ranked TFT until item RNG is properly fixed.
Yeah the RNG aspect of it is a huge turn off to me. I was skeptical from the start but having played the game this is not a time sink I am interested in getting involved in. Honestly I have no idea what the appeal is and why people like this sort of thing.
: The whole NB3 situation thing shows Riot's relationship to streamers is really F-ed up.
Streamers are free advertising for their game. Just accept it and try to worry about real life things that are important.

iamfirxs (EUW)
: ARAM BALANCE
It is impossible to balance ARAM. There are too many variables. Which champions do the players own, which ones will they roll, how many rr do they have, will someone trade with them if they get a champ they are bad at, how much time have they spent playing the champ they end up with, are they good at that champ in ARAM or just SR, what is the comp of the other team, are your teammates morons. You play ARAM you have fun games that you stomp, you have fun games that are evenly matched, or you have miserable games where you get stomped. In the latter case usually they don't last that long so the rage you feel goes away pretty quickly. Guy above me comments are the problem with trying to appease people with complaints about ARAM. Being forced to play champs you are bad as a possibility is the whole point of the randomness of ARAM. I was bad at 90% of champs when I first started playing but I just sucked it up and practiced with them and with most of them got better (though of course there are still a number of champs I suck with). And snowball is an equalizer for melee and helps make melee less kiteable and lessen impact of turtling under turrets. Some people just aren't good at ARAM and rather than cater to making them happy they should just practice more or stick to SR.
AmazoX (EUW)
: If NB3 goes unpunished then your rules mean nothing, it only means you play favorites.
Watched the video and the entire team was mad at this Nubrac guy. As much as NB was douchy and claiming he was going to "call his friend" it looked more like all 4 other members of the team reported him. Not sure why NB needs to be punished. We've seen Riot ban off meta choices before and there is always outrage but the other people in the game with the person were clearly impacted. In this case his win rate with this off meta pick was under 50%. Want to do something off meta that might seem like a troll pick? Great. Find 4 friends to queue with who won't report you and can help you make it meta.
: Are you Serious Skin Team?
Riot should just start banning people who make these skin whining posts. It is so boring and so predictable. And also obvious that the OP still lives at home and has never had a job or had to make money in life.

First of all watching some gameplay her water element doesn't seem that integral to making her useful. There is plenty of earth and plenty of brush so she will be fine. Second of all Udyr is amazing in ARAM in most matches. People just don't know how to be effective with him and you have to be patient.
: Who else is excited to play Leagues Auto Chess?
I am super underwhelmed by this news. But maybe I'll be wrong and it will be fun. If not I always have PvP in Classic WoW that I have been thinking of getting back into for nostalgia.
: So Much Botting in Low level ARAM
Been that way for a long time. I made a new account a year or two ago and only got to level 8 before the bots drove me insane. I was in an ARAM game where all 4 of my teammates and 2 of the enemy team were bots. That was the last straw.
: I am curious as to the age range of players.
Damn. When you are so old you fall under the + category and there isn't another bracket over you. And there are barely any other old AF people according to the poll. We really are a tiny minority.

I hated Nexus Blitz at first but I grew to love it. They really need to come out with something new (that isn't this autochess nonsense) or bring back rotating game modes.

: I don't really consider Soraka great cinematic material. Mostly they want to pack some action and tension in these, something that is not really represented by Soraka in my opinion. We could use some more spotlight on healing in Runeterra in general, tho. I would like to read a heartwarming story about Soraka trying to save the life of someone over a bunch of days. Or Sona visiting an ill child, who is a fan of her music, making her grow stronger every time she listens to her and defeating the illness some day, just for Sona to leave without anyone actually noticing what she has done (since it is Demacia and all and they hate da magic mambo jambo). _Maybe_ we could get a little event on something like this with the release of a new medic champion from Piltover, showing us that modern medicine is possible in that modern city even without replacing every ill part of your body with steel? _wink, wink_

Sukishoo (NA)

Nice that they recolored them but the passive animation itself is kind of ugly. It basically looks like colorful confetti swirling around him. Would have been cooler if they had made it disembodied screaming heads or claws.

That's funny. I always found it to be underwhelming. At any rate as a former raiding priest in WoW it always reminded me of the healing death angel holy priests could spec into so they could keep healing after death which felt so underwhelming to many that they named it improved death.
: Zyra's Midlane problem
Honestly Zyra's old passive really was garbage. I'm not a fan of "improved death" passives on a whole. But at least champs like Sion, Karthus, and Kog'maw can really make use of theirs and get some kills or do some damage. Zyra's was pitiful and easy to avoid.

He was my vote but I actually am fine with leaving him the way he is and just giving him a visual and voice update. I love his current gameplay and I think his ult is iconic.
: ARAM BANS COULD BE BACK
So basically they are catering to the people who don't know how to adapt to play against certain champs. My ARAM experience wasn't any better while bans were allowed. Never getting to play commonly banned champs makes the game less fun for everyone who enjoys those champs. If they are going to do this they should at least bring back rotating game modes so I have something else to play.
: If they bring back one pve game mode even for just a weekend, you still have Summoners Rift and ARAMS for pvp. That's two game modes compared to the one pve game mode. There's no reason to bring back another pvp game mode at the same time.

Ugh no. I hate the PVE modes so much. This is a PvP game. If they bring those back I wish they would also at least give us Ascension at the same time for those who want to PvP.
: 10 Days later. Still no splash art for Battle Prof Graves
Jesus. What a fucking first world problems thread this is. Get a grip. I would hate to see how you react to real life problems if you have ever even had one yet.
: ARAM is still garbage
I have over 5000 ARAM games in the past 6 or so years. ARAM is fine. Howling Abyss is a bit stale, I would prefer if they either left Bilgewater or rotated, and they could be a bit more adventurous with the new items they introduce. But entire champion pool isn't going to change much and the new rr system has improved quality of life a great deal.
cabbysb (NA)
: I'll take longer queue times if I don't have to play against PREMADES in ARAM
In my experience overall premades don't tend to any better than randoms in ARAM. In a few cases yes (if you are trying to dive their backline and they all peel). But I've won vs. many a premade (or lost games where I was the odd man out and the other 4 are a premade).
cabbysb (NA)
: The ARAM "balance" changes seem really random
There are plenty of opportunities for assassins (or anyone for that matter) to pick people off outside of team fights or just have the sense to hang back in a team fight and clean up weakened opponents afterward. At the end of the day I think some people just aren't very good at ARAM in general and make excuses.
Mr Meat (OCE)
: We NEED more game modes.
The game modes are also a really fun place to test out new champs that aren't in a roll that you normally play.
Nea104 (EUW)
: Aram: suspiciously NOT random.
Riot has tried to make me be Sejuani in first pick or rerolls like 30 times in the past two weeks. And I'm always like "Get the fuck out of here with this Riot. I don't want to play Sejuani." Also a lot of times when people dodge the comp of the next team (either mine or the enemy) ends up being very similar to the one that was dodged. I've sometimes ended up with the same champ 3 games in a row even though I own all champs. I've sometimes had the same roll and two rerolls twice in one night. Something is broken in whatever mechanism selects champs in ARAM.

Please Riot. Even Ascension. Any of the PvP modes.

They only do good when rng gives them a teamcomp that is squishy with minimal CC and low poke on the enemy team. It is like I said earlier. A lot of people just aren't good at assassins or melee in ARAM so do poorly. You have to know when to engage. You have to be patient. And obviously due to the random nature of ARAM there are going to be comps that are more difficult for some champions. But I regularly do well enough to get an S on Talon, Kha'zix, Zoe, Nidalee, etc. And these are champions I am not good at in default Summoner's Rift. Anyone tells me that any of these champs specifically are bad at ARAM I am going to say you just flat out don't know what you are doing. Meanwhile I have often played against champs like Kat, Zed, or Akali that destroyed my team (even though I am not that good at these champs myself). The fact that Akali got an 18% damage boost boggles the mind. Yes sometimes people feed or are awful on these champs in ARAM but they probably don't have much experience with them or are just bad at melee champs in general. When I was new at League I HATED getting a melee champ in ARAM. I thought there the odds were so stacked against them, I thought they had no chance of doing well. I would always reroll when I rolled melee and hope to get a ranged poke champ or someone with strong cc. But over time as I got better at those champs, as I started to understand when was the right time to engage and when is the right time to hang back I improved and often do really well. And again the random nature of ARAM means sometimes you are just going to go up against a difficult team to beat or you will get unlucky and someone on the enemy team got their main who they have played over a thousand games on. But that is the nature of random. That is why I hate the idea of bans in ARAM. There are no bad ARAM champs. There are just unlucky comps or players who are bad at champs and that is the nature of this game mode.
