: Welp, riot hit the koreaboo jackpot
Jamaree (NA)
: I understand that people don't like the concept of ranged tops, but if they weren't a thing
When top lane was only melee vs melee, it was all about skill + pick. There were soft counters that could be beaten with being a better player. When ranged tops started to funnel in like Teemo Ryze and Kennen, this was mostly because they didn't fit anywhere else, they simply didn't do well in mid/bot. Then ranged ads like Vayne and Quinn joined in because of their ability to bully better as long as they weren't engaged on. The risk vs reward for them was much lower. We could debate that oppressive melees brought more annoying/oppressive ranged to top, but I personally can't remember a time where I enjoyed a ranged top laner.
: anyone remember when there were diamond spectates in client
I remember the day that feature went live. First game I saw of all Diamonds and what I witnessed was a Singed doing laps around the enemy nexus who was 2/14/5 an AFK Sivir and Soraka on his team while Graves and Skarner were both taking down the enemy nexus and the rest of their team were all dancing in the baron pit. Diamond level play.

: I know everyone is doing this but Riot needs to notice (Refunds)
Honestly, you can just do some homework before you buy a skin. Impulse buys is equal to saying "I can't spend my money correctly" to a mega corporation. Getting more refunds would only encourage more of this habit on players, ultimately netting them more money. If you're curious about a skin before it drops, Riot showcases all of their skins beforehand, and if you're still curious, on Youtube, there's a channel SkinSpotlights that does an in depth overlook at each and every skin. Asking for refunds is tired out. Shop smarter.

: I know that it says that Ahri is getting yet another skin even if she got one just last year that was a legendary but at the moment i couldn't care more since it finally shows Kled on the list. As well as Amumu and Heimer, Amumu haven't gotten a skin since 2015 and for Heimer it was 2014.

: Nexus Blitz is a bit of a slap in the face to Dominion fans and the blow kind of stings
I really hope NB doesn't stay permanently. It's exciting to play, but I'm already reaching the fun vs win limit. I'm already seeing the same 5-6 champs each game and even am at the point where I'm not feeling able to play anything outside of the winning rings.
XM4triX (EUNE)
: Nexus Blitz Matchmaking Balanced?
Blitz really is a super one sided game. Unless that event comes up where the Nexus' run at each other to end the game, I've never seen a comeback. Those two must have been on some next level feeding to die that much in 11 mins.
: Support: Why Don't More People Play It?
When supports are strong/impactful, they go to other lanes and abuse the combination of power and utility {{champion:12}} {{champion:43}} {{champion:117}} {{champion:16}} When support items are strong, other laners take them, ADC take them {relic shield} and abuse the free money/utility, or those items become must buys {ardent censor} Really the reason people don't play supports is because once Riot sees a higher play/win rate, the community calls it out saying supports are dulling the game by being too good at healing/shielding/supporting and we get those champs nerfed then just play regular mages because Riot wants us to have 6 minute 5 man dives at bot lane or games being decided at the 15 minute mark because how else can they milk ESports? Also, you have to remember Riot works for the top 1% of players. When a good support has a good team behind them, it creates longer games, safer/less risky moves, and encourages the kind of slow, methodical gameplay which as it shows from their recent balancing, Riot doesn't like.
: I have a problem with Champions like Warwick
It makes him hard to itemize against because his Autos and his Q keep his damage relevant while building mostly/full tank. You really only need one non-tank item and even that's up for you to pick Bork, Jungle item for AS, and felx your defensive stats around that.
: ITT: Two VERY specific things that, if given the power to, you would bring back to League
I'd bring back Teambuilder and make BloodThister/Warmogs a farmable/stacking item again.

: Tfw you attempt to draw Pentakill Katarina but it looks neither like Katarina nor a Pentakill skin
I can totally see Katarina here, and I can see the morph into Pentakill theme. Though the end result didn't hit what you were looking for, I'm honestly hype for this idea and I didn't even know I could be hype for something I didn't know about until now.
: Honor 5 reward feels underwhelming and unsatisfying
It's really funny at the same time sad that we not only have to be given free stuff just to not be a mean person, but also complain about getting free stuff because it's 'not that good'.
: Why does Riot give champs cool gimmicks only to remove them soon after?
The worst part about Lucian and his ult was that he was released back when Sword of the Divine was still in game, but Riot purposefully barred that interaction before he hit live servers.
Keskiyo (NA)
: Add Counterplay to Vi ult
If they take power out of her R, they'd have to put it somewhere else just because her sticking power is actually kinda weak unless the target is already slowed/trapped. TBH, Vi's kit is pretty solid because the only reliable thing you know can do is R one person. Plus with shields, heals, GA being decent and overall team peel, Vi puts herself in as much danger after she lands too.
: Can we have champions' old looks as skins?
Traditional Eve and Warwick please.
: Stop playing ARAM or OFA if you can't handle not getting your pick
The only reason you should dodge OFA is Soraka, Singed or Nami. Truthfully, I don't hate any of these champs, but with no one else to 'do' anything, they fall flat like soda open for 3 days. I'm just trying to get Kai'sa and go nuts.
: What if... every summoner spell had the same relevancy as flash?
{{summoner:21}} Fiora W {{summoner:13}} Next Spell is Free {{summoner:1}} CC Immune For 1 Sec {{summoner:3}} Next Enemy Source of Damage is Reduced to 1 {{summoner:6}} Walk through the next wall you encounter with MS {{summoner:7}} 1 Sec Trynd Ult {{summoner:14}} Breaks Revive Effects at cost of half damage and duration {{summoner:11}} 1 Minute Spectre of Smited Unit {{summoner:12}} Damage Immunity during Channel W .5 sec invuln after teleporting. Pretty much how powerful these spells would have to be to challenge flash.
Waydox (EUNE)
: [Question for the skin team] How harder is it to make a Zac skin than a skin for an average champion
Also think about Zac and a skin for him. He's essentially naked so unless he randomly gets an outfit that flexes and stretches with him, it would look silly. He's also restricted to colors which means it really limited. Sure there's things like Magma, or Snow or even toxic waste, but really Zac doesn't fit in in skin line that he's not already in [pool party]. I really believe it's less of "The skin team isn't putting effort into Zac" it's much more "What idea can we have that doesn't either suck or can we just not make as a chroma?"
: Why are ADC's trash??
Because people relentlessly called for ADC nerfs all year and now Riot finally does it and whoops, look at what happens.

: Most Brutal ARURF experiences GD????
The enemy mundo got to 6. It all went downhill after that.
: So rito will disable things like Sona and Ryze but not Wukong or Yi in URF??
OP, I promise you, no one would want Ryze in their URF games. Play any melee champ with no gapcloser vs that and it's downright sad. Really, everyone in urf has some sort of kryptonite, but what would be a really nice middle ground would be a brief banning phase before the game randoms you. Hell, the bans could be random just to let you know the enemy DOESN"T have something super strong either.
: So....Is there even a meta any more?
We're still doing 2-1-1-1, still using flash, still using a ranged AD as the carry. I've seen no change in the meta.
: The buff he gives only lasts a couple of seconds and even if it fails it still goes on the full cooldown. Just don't kill the person he uses it on until after it wears off. Failing that, while being revived they will have to stay in the same spot on the ground. Push the enemy team back and surround the spot the person will come back at and CC them immediately.

: Weekly reminder that Normals are just a disgusting stomp-fest.
Remember back a few years ago when a portion of the community wanted faster games because stalling under turrets, dragging games out, and the overall game length was like 40-60? Yeah, that didn't fit in line with their E$ports plans and you know how now Riot's been catering to the top >1% and have been streamlining games so they can fit more games in their LC$ events? Why would they revert to what wasn't making them more money?

No, but I appreciate the attempted meme here. Just because two people played an unusual bot lane combo doesn't change/break/invent any new meta. It worked once on a coordinated, professional level. To suggest the randoms I play with would be as effective is painfully laughable and only further shows OP doesn't really understand what a Meta is.

You use this word, but I don't believe you know what it means.
: Does Aatrox new knock up do anything?
Think less hard/traditional CC and more like an interruption for command input. You'd honestly be surprised how strong this is going to be when stop the enemy from auto'ing, casts, using an item later than intended. You question form is also just kinda silly, how is a knockup not CC?

That's how fucking drastic this change is._ To answer the question simply, Aatrox fucking sucked shit in his old form. He's never once hit the mark as a champion, was a gimmick at best and even in a trained player's hands, he was still extremely feast/famine because he was easy as hell to itemize against.

Probably. Aatrox just likes war, no matter what side

Or instead of wasting time and resources for a ranking system practically no one wants, we just let ARAM be the All Random mode its meant to be and leave it be?

This exactly. First few days of original URF were crazy fun, everyone was doing stuff for fun and then the OP shit started coming out. Ryze Sona and Alistar and Hecarim were in every game. You tried stuff for fun, sure, but eventually a set 10 ish champs were in every single game and doing anything else was just uncomparable. I wanted to play AoE Perma Rocket Jinx but without the mobility of someone like Lucian or Ez, getting permacc'd by Jax or someone else over and over made playing normal URF draining. I like Random just because now Riot's worked out most of the kinks of some people and playing something strange you didn't expect turns out to be fun when it works. Full Tank Urgot today hardcarried my team cause they all gave up on champ select and my Kayle would just run into the enemy Teemo to get perma-blinded.

At least people play ARAM. So little people played Dominion everyone just got vocal as if they had more than one game in that whole year. If TT goes away, there'll be actual backlash cause ranked 3's is kinda real. ARAM is all I fucking play and I'm so excited for the change.
