: Akali is too weak for her role
I agree, Akali feels weak and ever since her nerfs playing her has gotten gimmicky. Her shroud is a joke enemy champs just walk right in and wait for you to appear, half the time you're not even hidden. Her Q is crap for the simple fact of the threshold you have to pass in order to proc, a rather large circle IMO. Her dash is garbage vs a knowledgeable player or even a range champ, it is impossible to land. Her ult CD for second activation takes too long which means you'll have to disengage then re-engage battle just like her Q. She is now a gimmick champ, so much that professor Akali is making vids of himself smurfing low ELO. Also her ult practically does no damage, once and execution spell now it's just another dash for evasion. Another thing, the Ults CD in general makes no since unless you stack CD items and you can add shroud to this argument as well.

On the contrary, if you are playing as a tank with minimum mobility(ahh hmm Morde), you will spend more time dodging vs getting CS.

He is a playmaking carry support with lane great lane sustain. You might not like him, that's fine, but personally I love playing him as support. > What does he bring to the support role, that others cant do better? > I mean, hell Rengar works better as a support than pyke does... > Yeah you lost me here. Pyke is a great support, Rengar is clearly not. But hey, if you wanna play rengar support feel free, just don't complain when you get called a troll...
I know this is an old post but I had to put my 1 cent in. With all the factors you've mentioned is the same reason why I like playing Pyke and will have him as my support main. When you are teamed with a good player who knows how to work with Pyke's abilities, you will basically control your lane. Also, OP forgot to mention Pykes R which is a game changer.

It was redundant two weeks ago, and yet you still respond. I'm obviously not a dev or mod, since I have no tags. I also never said you dodged games, i'm saying that _may_ have been a cause.

: What I assume happened is your connection timed out the exact second you clicked "Lock In" in the Champion Selection phase, or you didn't click hard enough and your mouse just let it happen. If not one of those two, then you need to stop dodging games, or else you wouldn't get LB in the first place. You also have around 30s to choose a champion, how wouldn't you notice that they took your champion and then choose someone else in the 15-ish seconds you'd have? You don't get leaverbuster for leaving one game, you get it for disconnecting from multiple games. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- You also go through 3 phases of the Champion Selection, such as: 1. Letting your allies know who you'd like to play 2. Banning of Champions 3. Champion Selection Then, you start the game, once that happens, you play, simple. If you don't complete the Champion Selection phase, you will be removed from the lobby and stricken with a penalty if you do things like this multiple times. HOWEVER, if you stop actions like this and play normally, your penalties will slowly be lessened and eventually removed all together, unless you start doing things like this again, in which case your wait times will increase from what I believe is 5 minutes, 15 minutes, and 20 minutes. This is, of course, assuming you cooperate with your penalty of waiting a preset amount of time in a lobby before joining a game.

Listen. Review my play history before you accuse me of dodging games if you're a dev or a mod then you probably have the power to see if I intentionally "dodge games". What would be the sense of dodging a game and ultimately knowing the consequences and then wasting time to complain about it? This post is becoming redundant. Respond if you want, but I won't.

I'm not going to argue with you or anyone else about wtf I experienced. As I stated before I selected my character banned a character after that round of selection the character I previously have chosen was taken by the other team and was NO LONGER AVAILABLE TO ME, SIMPLY PUT!
: I was hit with a leaver buster or whatever it's called!
For whoever is responsible for the - 1. I hope your game crashes during an intense battle causing your team to lose and you get all types to request to ban your account.
