: First off, I'm assuming this post was sparked by [your last game](https://matchhistory.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/EUW1/4119920102/236862901?tab=overview) when the enemy Pyke went 7/1/5 in a 16 minute game. Annie isn't that strong of a choice into Pyke to begin with since she can't provide her team with the tools to survive against him, atleast in the early game. You also have no armor, no bonus health, and the only armor on your entire team was in the form of Ninja Tabis on both Garen and Xin Zhao. The only way you would have made that pick work is if you got to mid or late game and locked Pyke down. Secondly, Pyke dies within a second of being focused and your team had the tools to shut him down late game if you had played safe early. Sivir in particular is a good pick into Pyke since her spellshield can completely stop his ultimate at any point in the game. >He's way too safe for a assassin No, he's not. >since he has a instant invis + movement speed His W has a large indicator and detection radius. If Pyke's E is down, he's not getting away from you with just his W alone. >a stun-dash with a fucked hitbox His E much like his Q, W, and ultimate, is very telegraphed and can be dodged with ease. The hitbox isn't that bad. > instant health regen, Doesn't activate while in vision, meaning a few wards will shut his regeneration down entirely. >so you cant even poke him down in lane or ever chase him. If you can't consistently lock Pyke down with hard CC, _poke his ADC. Don't poke **him**._ He offers no reliable utility or defensive options to his team, the only thing he has is aggressive CC options. If you poke his ADC down, they'll be forced to back early, miss CS, and you'll win all ins. Pyke is only as strong as his ADC unless he can get amazing roams off. >His hook flinges you behind him AND slows....? for some fucking reason, this is 100% unneeded, just let him hook towards, as if his dash was hard to him? His hook _only_ flings you behind him if you're at point blank distance. His Q has a slow on it to allow followup through his E and Ultimate. >the free execute with even more fucked up hitboxes, even less risk and soon EVEN MORE reward, honestly why does pyke get a free execute without needed to do any work before, if you're under 50% hp in lane you're just fucking dead. Nothing you can do. You can stop it entirely with a dash, blink, untargetability, stasis, MS boost, or well-timed heal. Don't believe me?

: My take/issue with the new PROJECT reveal
Considering the idea of this PROJECT line it makes perfect sense for Pyke to get a skin. He would easily suit it visually (which he does) and the idea of him killing all the people that are part of the PROJECT Corp suits well with his OG lore. It sits perfect with me, Irelia is the one that confuses the hell outta me, considering at least Jinx and Akali have reason the be "outcasts", i know the original lore isn't exactly the same as a different skin universe but with their actual personality not changing it makes sense. Irelia on the other hand?? same reason i didn't like dark star karma, it just doesnt feel like her, Irelia shoulda been one of the cops like Vi or been with the rebels like Ashe and Yi, but thats just my take. Riot wants to make money this year and its pretty clear with the champs they pick for skins and going back to the old skin lines that were popular. thats how it be with a FTP game like League.
: Battlecast isn't in the PROJECT universe. Riot has confirmed this, and Battlecast isn't even under the PROJECT universe in the client's skins tab.

Riot has confirmed this, and Battlecast isn't even under the PROJECT universe in the client's skins tab. actually battlecast vel'koz is in PROJECT: Katarina's splash art so unless they did that for the lols i can prolly assume they are in the same universe, just like cosmic and dark star being in the same unverse as odyssey. they dont have to be in the same skin tab from what i know soooooo

: Opinion: More Mobility does not make the game fun
Yasuo and Zed get really screwed over by just one stun and follow up tbh. I guess it can be an issue of hitting the stuns but you should get into the market of reading your opponent in that case. As a Zed and Yasuo player i have lost plenty of games where my team was even slightly behind and all the enemy had to do was focus me with lockdown. Riven and Irelia really are too tanky for their damage numbers. Ngl they are beyond frustrating to play against. Aatrox has become a pretty big pain late game too with his E cooldown only being 4 seconds with cdr stats. The big issue really is just way too much damage in the game, and there are a lot of champs who are extremely hard to kill just from abilites that make them tanky with zero counterplay. Need more abilities that can do something about shields!
: Male design variety vs female
Riot hasn't really released many attractive female champs recently so most complaints on here are very redundant lmfao. Sorry but it's a game and it's gotta majority of the playbase as male so of course there is going to be a very high amount of cute girls. Just how in games/movies there are prince charmings! and super sexy men with crazy hot bodies most guys wish they had! I think this whole debate is pointless over all, not gonna lie.
: Can Yasuo Ult Stop Taking Him Out of Turret Range?
I don't like seeing people complain about this cause it's always the same nonsense. "It shouldn't be so forgiving." there are a lot of champs with forgiving abilities, you need to be constructive, you asking that is like halving neeko's fat shield she gets from her ulti after using it. It's actually not as strong as you think, a Yasuo isnt going to insta-kill you cause he got to be out of tower range, if his ult doesn't kill you (which if it does it's your fault for getting in range of letting him knock you up, if you really are THAT low you should be backing waaaaaaaaaay off, just like in any instance with any diver, play safe, play smart.) not only that, from my own experience playing as Yasuo I have had moments where i WASN'T put out of tower range actually! I'm not saying that as a justification but i think its more so a reasonable thing, its not like he can ult you while you are hugging tower and then be 1000 feet away from turret range, i have never had that happen to me while playing yasuo and i have played him plenty. I guess it can always put you in *blank* spot no matter what but even then you could have cases of him being out of tower range, so it wouldn't make any sense, this whole thing isnt as forgiving as you think and isn't going to win people games, my only real advice i can give you is to mind his 3rd q range if you think he can kill you with ulti aa q combo, just like with ANY champ with ANY kit, and the tower isnt ALWAYS your safe zone, and there are other places you can walk towards. just be more careful.

: Submitted a bug on Shen a while ago, Its been a known bug for over 3 months.... (Hail of Blades Bug)
I agree completely. When you actually get it to work it feels awesome, however it should proc off of any auto attack shen does, including his Q.
: Riot hasn't thought of a single skin idea in 4 years.
to be fair anytime a champ that hasn't gotten a skin in awhile gets a skin the entire player base for that champ goes berserk and complains about how it doesn't meet the standard. i don't want to say "get what you get and don't throw a fit" but like, popular champs are gonna get the super fancy skins cause thats just marketing. the fact riot is even willing to make a skin for "insert champion name" cause they havent got a skin in ____ days is the best we will ever get. sad reality.

Happened pretty often that my Ultimate get wasted for nothing because my allies don't realize they are stunned, even thought her arrow is fairly big. straight up vanishes after it hits someone and all you get is the purple stun icon with stunned on the enemies head. i feel if you hit an arrow from across the map and your team sees an enemy suddenly COVERED IN ICE they would be like "ah a good catch and easy kill for me!"
: Ashe VFX update is a missed opportunity for her ultimate.
I agree. Would be very cool and fitting for her theme.
: My Thoughts On Yuumi As An Enchanter Main
Me waiting for an enchanter from Noxus that has more personalty than just "pRoTeCC InnOcEnCt PeOplE"
: Looks like she's the teacher, which rules out another possibility for Jhin's legendary. We'll see, though.
I know Pulsefire is KIND of ruled out due to the fact we have PROJECT Jhin but i feel it could be possible. Just my thoughts tho.
: Had my worst experience in league today
The sad thing about the current meta is that its a TEAM GAME meta. There is no longer a solo carry god mid or top, it's all about playing like a team and carrying yourself. You can't carry feeder/trolls anymore. When you get one in your game, you should prolly get ready too ff at 20 {{sticker:zombie-nunu-bummed}}

: Ezreal giving vocal warnings when certain champions are near
tbf lore freaks should just take it and abuse it cause they deserve to be rewarded since they arenn't B)
: LOL. Riot deleted an ARAM thread with 300+ upvotes in an attempt to silence negative feedback.
I thought the idea was cool but bans in ARAM are almost silly. ARAM accounts are a problem for sure and it's super frustrating but whats more frustrating is not being an ARAM account and wanting to play Luz/Ezreal and never getting the chance to since he is always banned, and if he isnt banned its random picks so you know, it can ruin the experience for everybody. I think we can all just admit ARAM account ruined ARAM.
: why nerfing yasuo wont fix yasuo
yasuo doesnt need a nerf, he needs a balance change. yasuo's kit however is hard to balance without making it a hard nerf, thus thats the real problem people fail to recognize.
: Star Guardians Wanted!
i would love to be a part of this someday, you guys should add me i love meeting new people :D
: Let’s be honest, regardless of whether Zed is OP or not, this board will always cry about him relentlessly. And it’s typically uncalled for. So let’s not pretend Riot or anyone is admitting to zed being OP for years. And not everyone who plays zed plays Yasuo. To be honest, your post is so full of holes and flaws that it hurts.
Finally someone willingly saying that everyone on boards just whines about (insert champ that killed them too many times in game) I never see anybody have an actual conversation about it, its typically just seething and upsetti people agreeing with OP. If people would actually talk about it then maybe it'd be better but ya know, its whatever.
: I can't be the only person thinking this obvious truth, right?
A lot of those champions are pretty squish and require a lot of gold to build. The real counterplay to Yasuo is shutting him down ASAP and keeping him shutdown. It can be difficult to do but it's not impossible, and YES CC works wonders vs any Yasuo player. Saying that Crowd Control shouldn't be the only counterplay to a champion is really one sided tbh. Skilled players are gonna avoid CC and side step it easily, There are moments where Kat and Zed have zero time to do something actually if you haven't tried playing off of it. Zed for instant, after ulting, will 100% appear in one spot. If you get used to the timing and do it right you can throw some shit onto him right there actually, same thing with Kat, she is gonna have moments before she is hella fed where you can outplay her by predicting her movement. Fizz you just need to keep your distance and make sure not to step right into his ult or something. Yi and Jax are the only ones i really do think are broken atm as once they get any items whatsoever it takes an army and a half to stop them and thats if you get lucky and fight a jax and yi who dont know how to play off a lead. Counterplay for these champs happen in the early game more often than not really and you need to be aware of that and play off their weak points, watch the enemies movements and behavior and do what you can to outplay them. I wish you luck.

: Skin for Rakan.. but not for Xayah?
I mean... the guy that picked the skin did awesome plays on Rakan at the worlds finals this last year i think its deserved. plus riot never said they are ALWAYS gonna keep them together but they did say they wanted them to have SOME matching skins so, 3 set already, you know its fine, really.
: Patch 9.4 in a nutshell. Frustrating champions edition.
Wrong in a lot of ways. Every champion takes some form of skill and on a lot of those you only really get that "no skill moment" when they are super far ahead. In even games (yes those exist sometimes) they take skill to win their match-ups. Just cause the winrate is high doesn't a new player can hop on them and be jesus. the winrate is across the board in every rank and not only that, the champions are strong for completely different reasons in different elos. riot just needs to work on balance, if they could do that right of course lol
Yenn (NA)
: Why was Zed buffed again?
its actually an avoidable combo if you ask me. anyone outside of iron can dodge it, or at least try. and it wasn't a buff but a balance change. they took off his ult passive giving him ad for killing things and just moved some power to his normal abilities.
: You know which type of people are Sensitive when they cant handle being called trash in a video game
It's not about being sensitive, it's about player behavior. People tend to say more than just "u r trash" they just start it with that to get a reaction out of someone and then use that as an excuse to be a jerk. When they get reported for it they laugh it off until there is actual consequences. Then those same players will complain about how they got banned. If you really just said "hey you are trash" and the other player just didn't care then nothing would happen. It would be fine, cause they can just mute you, have self control and not say anything or even just go with it and troll too. I guarantee it's not just being called trash man, people that say that love to get reactions out of people and will keep poking more and more until it goes from "u r trash" to "kill yourself you waste of space" people need to more so, be on their best behavior and NOT try to troll and screw with people, silly banter is fine but keep it at that.
: Anyone Ever Been Banned for Saying “Kid”?
I mean why belittle people when you can say nothing. Not in the sense of "if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all!" no no no, i'm not saying that. I'm trying to say, hey man, you can just not be mean. It's actually pretty easy. I think a majority of the player base, in a bad game of league, would get pretty upset over you/anyone calling you 'kid'. Mainly cause it's just rude. Show more love broski, for your sake.
: LOL I WAS BANNED FOR THIS?
I really think you should tone down your attitude. You seem like the type of guy to talk mad shit all game if he had a team that was winning, but as soon as he was losing just slightly he would flame his time ALL game for EVERYTHING. IN A NORM. Come on man, have just a little love for someone other than yourself.
GigglesO (NA)
: Why tanks don't exist
Yeah let's forget about how busted tanks were for a bit... everything in this game at this point isn't balanced.
: It is a publicity stunt, but your other point, that bring a couple of good female players on different teams has a different issue. Teams live together, so bringing 1 girl onto a team of at least 4 boys has the issue of that one girl living alone in a house with 4 other boys that she isn't related too. Most girls don't want that so they don't take the opportunity if it is offered, and most teams don't offer because of that.
Never thought about it like that. Guess it would def be awkward and would raise questions. In that case however, I guess an all female team of GOOD players (regardless of looks) would prolly be the closest we get to women in e-sports. I mean come on, these girls are all eye candy kek. Memes aside putting diamond players vs people in challenger in that region seems silly to me still.
: My brief thoughts on the RiotAugust "Controversy"
Tbh anytime i get on the boards it's just some complaint of the week. Typically over something small, sometimes it's big tho. For instance the Kayle armor problem. However when they say Yasuo is unbalanced or (blank) isn't how I think it should be it gets kind of old. Def when there isn't any solution really. Just a place for people to voice opinions, and let's all be honest it was unprofessional, but anyone could say that about this situation. So the cycle is gonna just continue in like, a day or two. It's whatever.

: Look at the white knights go
I mean seems like a publicity stunt to have an all girl team. I'm all for girls being in the LCS but why does it have to be an all girl team and not just a couple of good female players on different teams? Idk seems kinda silly, entire thing really. R E S P E C T W A M E N.

Ok but how many prestige skins have we gotten since the first one :| when something they think is a sure success comes out it happens again within like two patches. I just wish they tried to explore it more instead of dropping it in favor of prestige points/skins. I don't know if anyone has asked Riot about it but I might. Can't be too hard to basically make a 750 skin for a champ right? Tho let's be real Pajama Guardians are better than Prestige skins oof.

Gutted Irelia*, gutted Akali* just a bit of a correction there for ya. I'm glad they are weaker but they are BEYOND bad as of now.

I'm legit interested in seeing the ammount of people that actually spent the 100 dollars on that, because it must have been at least somewhat profitable if they think it's a good idea to try that again It could also be something their team committed to, rather than "this was profit, let's do it again." They probably decided to try several runs of it, like they did with the variant skins (Eclipse Leona, Star Guardian).
Except they never made something like the Leona and Star Guardian skins again. Which I personally thought wasn't a bad idea. Pajam Guardians sucked yeah, but the concept has a good amount of potential. Too bad prestige skins are popular i guess :')

: Isn't this the case for most champions, with some being even more gankable early than Yasuo?
I would say yes but setting yasuo in specific behind that one kill will do damage to not only him but his morale a lot of yasuos are prideful idiots and will play stupid while behind, mainly in lower elos like iron - gold. i know this cause i was that yasuo for a bit tbh.
Zezilian (EUNE)
: Why Zed got buffed ?
It was a balance change. Because they took the extra AD from his passive on ult (which stole AD on kills) they had to compensate as it would make him too weak.
: people who claim that yasuo has a bad early have a special place in hell reserved tbh
if you get a good gank early at level 1 by letting yas push up its pretty much always a free kill tho
: More personality? A joke that essentially says "For 2.95, i will fuck your brains out" at interpretation for a very non-subtle joke? THAT is personality to you? She isn't Evelynn for fucks sake! It was added because she is half naked, and they quite literally tried to sell Janna like that as she is one of the first champions of League so they had to market the game in a way, so to speak. The majority of the people don't know her current lore, let alone her previous lore/s, as the majority are immature teenagers who won't go digging at the character's life and personality. They'd rather see "Wow, boobs. I'm gonna play her for sure!" Do you really want to argue if i'm wrong on this account? League isn't full of 10 - 16 year olds who'd rather jerk off than immerse themselves by reading more than 10 letters of the screen before getting bored? And you seem to be proving my point by insinuating that that's how it should be cuz "Y'know, hush hush, i like it." At least that's the tone you're speaking with not to mention how you are somehow assuming you can speak for everyone by saying "people like it". I don't know anyone who is "happy" with nothing but a single line of disgustingly bad humor. Everyone uses it as a meme **to** give her a character. Everyone with two brain cells knows that that's not part of her actual lore because noone bothers to read it. Sometimes they give themselves the benefit of doubt and often delude themselves into thinking that is the case. Janna's human character was about struggling against the cruelty of the world with the unflinching morality and humanity within her. I've seen a couple kids say "Well it's in the bio '..did anything she had to do to survive..' " and it was also specified to be stealing, "when being smart wasn't enough." I feel like a lot of people try to entertain their denial by being in willing denial just so they can indulge in horny fantasies. Neeko's sexuality was confirmed by a Rioter from the narrative team because it was a fact. Asking about it didn't "make it so". Players got the memo because it was pretty damn obvious and wouldn't have been so obvious if it wasn't already the case. We didn't have any influence in the matter. It is like if Taric said "Gems are truly, truly....beneath your beauty, Ezreal." and then we'd ask if Taric is gay, Riot would say yeah and you would think that the act of us asking made it so when it was clearly the truth before. Did you know Evelynn is a virgin? Not in the lore, a Rioter confirmed it without anyone asking for it specifically. They are the only reliable sources of authentic facts pertaining to the lore of League other than the lore itself and you somehow think that players have any say before the stories are even out.
But it's a joke... Just saying she can joke freely about it. I'm not speaking for everyone but a majority of Janna players like her just the way she is. At least every Janna main i've played with. Mainly cause they are more focused on the actual gameplay elements because there is more to a champion than the design. The design is fine cause its not like people stoped everything they are doing mid game cause they got an erection and they gotta go "take care of it" i have never even heard of a case of someone doing it, and even then if someone has then i doubt it was cause "oh janna has cleavage" You are acting like her design takes away all enjoyment from the game... which it doesn't. Elaborate the idea of fact? People were only curious after hearing stuff in game, which none of it was mentioned in lore onl to be CONFIRMED by a Rioter as fact, so up until that point it wasn't really fact, but speculation that was later confirmed by a Rioter as fact. Also why do you refer to people as kids? A majority of people i play with in games, against or with, are actually far older than 10-16 years old. It's fine the way it is cause it's not causing any actual problems and if it is its in small communities that want a change that the majority doesn't want any part it. A lot of players can see a champions personality through their in game interactions and voice lines, someone could safely assume "Jinx is crazy and likes blowing stuff up" "Yasuo is a drunk guy who is really edgy and sad" "Jhin is a serial killer psycho with an obsession for art" things characters say in game may not be canon but people can find enjoyment in that, so whats the issue with it? A joke that is deemed "bad humor" to you could be funny to some else. So in that case I think its safe to say relax and enjoy the game for what it is instead of what you wish it was, the lore isn't everything and you shouldn't rub it in someones face and demand changes cause of it.

No reason to be this upset. I mean, I didn't particularly like Janna being made into a deity, but I've accepted it. I would prefer her wardrobe be something a bit less silk curtains on a bikini though. I think the design is horribly dated and very fan servicey. I've seen some very good modernizations of Janna that do actually keep the flowing design while also making her look more sensible. This was one: https://cdnb.artstation.com/p/assets/images/images/005/957/851/large/thomas-randby-janna2.jpg?1494988425)
Actually a really good design but I doubt they will change her base model anytime soon. Someday just not today {{sticker:zombie-nunu-bummed}}

You're assuming something in-game is canon. Do you also think that Soraka attacks using actual bananas? NOTHING in League of Legends that bypasses the lore itself is canonical. Everything in-game is pure fan-fic.
No... but i mean it's a joke that actually gave her character more personality..? Can that be canon? Everything in game may be fan-fic but it makes a majority of the people happy and content character wise so ya know. Besides, things can be cannon that happen in-game, Neeko sexuality isn't mentioned in the lore and is only really hinted at through in-game voice lines, Riot later confirmed after being asked so it made it canon. Don't just instantly dismiss it like that!

This is ancient Greece related things we are talking about, not modern day America :( What's silly is that people are conforming this "greek goddess" appearance to her as if she was visually updated when her lore changed - she was not. They took a woman who was a wind mage, and for whatever reason dressed like a stripper, and made her a deity. The point exists that Janna since day one in this game has had no need whatsoever to look like she looks. Sure, some spirits have been scantily clad in myths, but Riot shoved Janna into that classification at a much later date. It doesn't excuse them for the many many years before then as to why she looks this way.
I mean wouldn't you rather have Janna be a goddess/deity and have a reason to be clothed in skimpy fashion or would you prefer to have her not be that and just a scantily clad wind mage. I think one sounds better to me, and i feel they retconned her lore for a reason. Even then I don't know why this is such an issue, it's a fantasy game, and it's fine the way it was and is really.

What? Give me a single example of when Janna has been "sexually provocative" with humans. I'll wait. She has so little involvement in the lore now that i think her bio and color story are it.
Ok tbh one of her jokes in game is talking about prostitution sooooooo, regardless she is just a wind spirit and her character is just based off of spirits and goddesses from older mythos so i don't even know why there is a bug hub-bub over it.

She's skimpy because her followers portray her as skimpy. > > Shes based off of greek spirits, who were all naked. It makes perfect sense since dieties are often portrayed in little to no clothing since they are supposed to be perfect. Why would Zaun be any different? So she appears as a barely clothed woman to a young gay boy in her flavor story because why then?
Tbh that's like the most silly thing to think about cause it makes no sense. She is STILL based off the idea of Greek gods and goddesses so why would it matter what homosexuals think about her. Things can be different from other cultures and not have to conform to yours. This is ancient Greece related things we are talking about, not modern day America :(

: So since Kayle becomes unmasked in game by default. Can unmasked become Armored Kayle?
I am excited to see where they go with her skins as she had a lot of the same issues Akali had with older skins... that being they were just recolors. I would venture to say they are gonna make a lot of the skins more fleshed out and prolly add them to different already existing skin universes. Just gotta wait it out and see :)

: How Kayle should have looked
Due to them changing Fiora's back when she got her rework im sure they will do something to change kayle. Besdies, we haven't even gotten to the PBE update yet. After this much community backlash i am CERTAIN Riot will make a change. Anyways the art looks awesome and it's so subtle yet carries so much value. Love it.
: Gotta say: Not a fan of Kayle's new look.
Wouldn't call it unique overall. Just girl in armor. Any game can do that. Majority of guys aren't a fan of it however, so thats just how it is.
: It's pretty hard to say, so I'm assuming both. Even if the W was Vastayan magic though, his E dash is like almost like a slower version of alpha strike - leaving him open to counters, but still jumping on top of someone and hitting nearby targets as well. That's the most similar ability he's got to Yi, and undoubtedly a result of his training.
doesn't make like multiple wukongs come out when he uses it too to hit other targets near by or was that just something i thought o fin my head...
: Okay, apparently we can get demoted while playing on other roles
If you get a random DC at all in the game btw and reconnect to win the game you lose LP overall too. even if its a bugsplat or just your wifi randomly going out.
