: I have seen people play Zyra jungle before the rework, they needed a huge early on leash and then abuse that monsters target plants. Idk if it works anymore. Weak lvl 1 but good afterwards. Some Morde mains actually play him jungle. His W in particular gives him great sustain nowadays. Keep in mind that there are very few actual Morde players, so we see one in the jungle once in a blue moon. I have seen some Karma players in the jungle, but she didn't seem that viable. Karthus has been considered viable in the jungle most of the time, but very few players can really handle him.
I used to play a lot of zyra jung pre rework, it doesn't work at all anymore all jungle monsters can oneshot plants now whereas before they had to 3 hit them which gave you enough time to keep a continuous cycle of plants up to keep you relatively unhurt.
: Of the 9 games I've played on SR with the new runes, 4 have lasted 40+ minutes, 3 were 30-40 minutes, and only 2 were 20-30 minutes. Just because you had one game where you got stomped doesn't mean that's the norm.
tfw one game is now the sample size people base balance off of. Lol

: While that particular combo may be next to impossible to execute properly, it does suggest a much easier combo. Heading bot lane for a gank, Thresh throws you a lantern, Ult backwards, q backwards, ult return, grab the lantern and throw your q forward, maybe put a flash in there somewhere. And if you can land an E through the tribush wall, you can get the extra damage from that, as well as an easy target to land, since I assume the travel time of the q over such a long distance will make it hard to land.

: If I remember a LONG LONG time ago before Ornn they said something like 2 more champions by the end of the year. And with how fast teasers are going (New SOMETHING every 2 or so patches) I would guess Swain will either be next patch (In 7 days) since they obviously are pretty close to having him down. Or the patch after (Near end of November.) And the new champion 2 or so patches after that. (Mid-late December.) Or maybe since TECHNICALLY the New Champ teaser was in first. Maybe new champ next and Swain after, same times. I see Swain hitting game LATEST a tiny bit into January.

Pretty sure it'll be new champion before Swain rework as it tends to be alternating between champion reworks and new releases and our last iteration was Evelynn.

No one has ever asked for her charm to be instant, but it would be nice if the cook time decreased passively with level since she gets even weaker as people start to group anyway.
OP was asking why Evelynn had to be gated, I'm answering with a hypothetical on what would happen if she WEREN'T gated. Never claimed people were asking for her to have an instant w.
: Serious question, why is Evelynn gated behind so many conditions?
Imagine if Evelynn's w had no indicator/ was instantly available to be procced. That would be completely busted. As a stealth champ she needs gating on huge burst otherwise it becomes too oppressive. Not to say that she doesn't need some easier way to activate the charm after it's ready but she definitely needs some gating on her w.
: Have Any Unpopular (Non-Political) Opinons?
I like new Evelynn and think she's actually pretty well balanced and doesn't need the plethora of buffs people are shouting about on the boards, At most she could do with a w buff to remove the indicator of where she is and/or a base ms buff.
: It's strong, that doesn't mean Riot can't fix it. And, its an item, it doesn't take that much to change it, resource wise.
No but taking the TIME it takes to think about the best way to balance it (and it does take time, between champion interactions and other item interactions) does. Gutting was the right course of action here
: Balancing the item is the best option, gutting it is the quickest.
Best option because they don't have the time to work out how to balance it cause it's too strong...
: Ardent would actually make sense of champions like Nami (Lulu). On Hit effects to bolster your on-hit effect kit. Ardent is overtuned now, but has some decent potential if Riot can balance it better. Shame you'd prefer building like a Soraka with that Locket Redemption build, but w/e. Gut diversity xd
It's not diversity when it was a staple pick. they will try balance the item eventually but right now to encourage champion balance in the support role gutting it is the best and quickest option.

: I didn't say it was easy. I was saying why he lost. With his comp, the only hope for them killing Kog'maw was for Pantheon or Twisted Fate to surprise him from a bush. He lacked any champion capable of closing to him easily and bursting him. If he had had Talon, Akali, or Zed (the only three assassins I can think of that could get past their comp), or someone like LB or Ahri, his odds would have been pretty good, assuming he closed before Cho'gath got fed. The lack of that got him killed. I was talking specifically about Kog'maw, however. Not Kog'maw with a Lulu. The only hope there is...well...a miracle. If you have someone like Xerath, who could possibly kill Lulu from long range, the odds would have been pretty good. But, with that comp...? No way. Against Lulu, you have to kill her if she ults someone else. That's her counterplay. If she keeps someone else alive, you blow her face up. Just like if the enemy team has an overactive Soraka. Cho'gath, his only real weakness is ban phase. Barring that, you have Vayne and Fiora. Without those...Nasus or Veigar, maybe? Maybe a Sion? Possibly a heavily-stacked Kindred? Without those...your only hope is to split-push them to death. Cho'gath's turret-taking powers leave a lot to be desired, at least. And, as I said, to beat Kog'maw, just have someone jump in his face and nuke him. He's on the same defensive tier as Kindred and Vayne, but has no mobility, making him _the_ weakest to burst there is. Even _Sona_ has more durability than Kog'maw, and she's made of tissue paper. You just have to find some way to combine these three things into one team. Someone like Akali will help a lot against Lulu and Kog'maw, as long as you get the W down before Lulu polymorphs you, since she's not locked into bursting one champion, meaning if Lulu ults Kog, she can burst Lulu, or visa versa.

I just played a 4v5 where even though we were doing ok, we just can't make sidelanes push on their own because they did like 40% bonus damage to our minions. This is a really dumb mechanic. kill the wave, wait for the next to arrive, kill only half that wave. do not clear it. leave 3 so that it stalls for the upcoming wave to arrive. then they all focus the same minion and kill it fast, while the enemy minions group and don't target anyone. canon waves are dangerous. make sure you kill the canon minion if it's the wave you're leaving to push.
You generally wanna kill all ranged minions doing this as melee minions do less damage and are tankier giving your waves more time to group
