: The List of Riot's Unfavored Children (Champions w/o Login Screen Theme)
: I kinda feel like the Riven "nerf" isn't going to do much due to the compensation buff
This is literally going to nerf her really hard. She has more opportunities to get punished in teamfights, but moreso, she can't win lane into almost every matchup anymore, she's gonna to lose 75% of matchups toplane and have to give up a majority of the farm which might make her get buffs in a patch or 2.
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: May 9
If riven gets hit too hard with the nerfs + buffs to other top laners are you willing to revert a bit of the cd early on e or any other changes to make her able to have a laning phase?
: Using smash bros to explain the current situation in League right now
They're 2 completely different genres of game and the balance does not equal. A fighting game should not dictate the balance of an RTS game. There's no reason someone I can't kill quickly should be able to kill me quickly or vice versa. Assassins do damage and are mobile because of how squishy they are, but if a tank could one-shot me in a combo, how is it fair I can't one-shot him in one?
: Wouldn't Riven be more fair and easier to balance if she lose some of her animation cancels?
Because Animation canceling is the majority of her skill expression. Not only that but if you take away animation canceling then she'll have less damage so they'll probably buff her damage so she'll be easier and still do the same amount of damage.

: I know Pentakill is THE metal band of Alternate Universe Runeterra, but I wouldn't be sad to see some other band skins made, even more metal ones. I think if they have can Kayle as guest vocalist they should just give Kayle her own band that she is the front woman of. I can see Ziggs have a kind of cool percussion metal skin. Jinx could fit as well, maybe one gun is a guitar and the other is a keytar lmao. Shaco having a metal band skin would be really cool as well, not sure where he would fit in though.

: Remove champion shards from hextech chests
Riot doesn't have to give us orange essence at all, you guys realize that riot is giving us free skins that we could be paying for, but they're kind enough to let us get some for free every now and then. I'm fine with getting some extra blue essence every few chests because i know that riot is gonna make money if they just let us have hundreds of free skins.

The current passive has 2 bars but only shows the one that has the most souls. The reason it seems like it's the last his is because 14 minutes in you get a ridiculous amount of souls.

Why does everyone want a joke skin when he doesn't have any good skins yet. Soulhunter is subpar and I want something that will actually make kayn look good.
nelogis (EUW)
: If Evelynn is undead then that being the mist just wouldn't make any sense now would it? Because like said, nobody "commands" the mist. The only thing that MAY be able to command it is the Ruined King. Yorick commands some souls IN the mist, not THE mist. "Almost lost within his grief, Yorick began to speak to the spirits around him, attempting to find solace with them as he had as a child. Instead, as he communed with the Mist, corpses left their graves, guided by his voice. He realized the bodies he once laid to rest were now his to command." - Yorick's Lore You can't just pick up some mist, put it on your body and then use it's powers. If she is undead then the mist would simply ignore her but let's say the mist and she have an agreement so that Eve is sucking human's life out (Succubi) and giving it to the mist, in return the mist grants her it's powers. Problem is, the mist isn't something smart, it isn't a single conciousness (Read Maokai's lore if you don't know what I mean, it explains pretty well how the mist behaves). As soon as you touch it, it consumes you. "Cursed upon touch" - Yorick's ingame quote The reason Yorick is "carrying" the mist is not because he wants it: "Isolated tendrils of the Black Mist clung to him, trying to overtake the one living thing not yet corrupted. As the Mist wrapped itself around him, Yorick saw it suddenly recoil from the vial at his neck. Yorick clutched the blessed water, realizing it was all that kept him alive." - Yoricks Lore That's the reason why Yorick has the mist on his body but Eve? Now let's say Eve is a manifestation of the mist (even tough mist isn't smart or a single conciousness). But in that case Evelynn couldn't leave the shadow isles. I just find it highly unlikely that the thing covering her body is the mist, unless riot wants to make her a special snowflake wich I would hate (Main reason I hate Kayn)
> I just find it highly unlikely that the thing covering her body is the mist, unless riot wants to make her a special snowflake wich I would hate (Main reason I hate Kayn) Wait Kayn is special how?
: Evelynn and the Black Mist
I think it'd be pretty cool if she ends up being the Ruined King's wife... Like after the king revives her and then uses the spell to kill her, she doesn't end up dying and the black mist gave her a new form, and obeys her as she is the reason it was created.

A Drake however, is defined as being a dragon with no wings (Dragons having 4+ legs with wings.)

: Hydra Aurelion Sol Legendary Skin Concept
It should be a 3250 skin with more the idea of losing heads as he loses health, the heads being really animated (like looking their own ways), and each head having its own voice and personality with the middle one (being who you're actually playing as) having the same personality as aurelion sol but with a more hissy but still soothing voice

: i main shaco, sadly thats not why or my personality i play him more as a tactician with his boxes because im usually supporting with him. i main him because i like to outsmart my enemy and what better way than to mind fk them into killing themselves, again, and again... and again it is hilarious what shaco can do with very little gold when played right. i dont do it to play pranks i do it to make people think about how they died and hope they get better :D. then ill trash them with other champions if they try to '1v1 me bro'. but only after they can start beating my shaco. i won lane with 0 ganks as janna vs zed, jax, and went even vs a lee. and they werent bad players its just they could never get to me :D
I play shaco because i like psychological warfare :^)
: Come on man, don't let one damn experience make you instantly put all Yas players in that kind of category.... they are not all like that i promise you. Any champion/player can give a negative experience. In my experience it's usually a {{champion:64}} player with his level 7 mastery, whom will fail ganks and just fuck up period then proceed to blame whatever person he tried to gank for, cause ya know, he's just so much better and on another level lmao. Most Yas players i meet are just silent and don't do anything besides just play the game. Hell iv'e only seen a handful of toxic {{champion:92}} and she is supposedly one of those bad rep champions just like Yas, yet i don't have any memorable BAD experiences with said champ or it's players. BTW, if that player is toxic one one champ, they are toxic on all champs. Don't let one event bother you. I still give Lee players the benefit of the doubt even though iv'e had MULTIPLE very memorable matches with a very toxic Lee on my team.
Actually, if you go to r/rivenmains, the entire subreddit is against being toxic, it's mostly low elo players of Riven, Lee, Yas, Vayne, ETC., who get salty when they can't use mechanics correctly, instead of people who play the champion for the mechanical intensity, instead of them being "Easy."

: I think you might of misread it, since they are on different lines. "Human Child?" is what I said.
yeah woops lol thought you were being age-ist.
: There is no Z axis. There is no "Jumping". Tristana goes through the same..... obviously.
X axis controls width, Y axis controls height, and Z controls depth. It's not the Z axis that isn't there, it's the Y
inplane (NA)
: What I'm wondering about is why does this topic have so much downvotes. It's an odd problem that has persisted for the longest time. If Riot wants to fix it the old fashion way, they can make it so that jumping champs receive a buff while jumping that makes them ignore {{champion:51}} traps or {{champion:202}} traps. It's ugly and inefficient, but it's worth a try.
the point of the traps is to remove the mobility of people, why would they make mobility able to ignore it
: Not sure what's so funny about that, seeing as it's true. Only the animations are in 3d. The physics and hitboxes are all in 2d. So if you "jump" in the game your hitbox does not actually go up a z axis and things which you appear to be "above" still hit you
Y axis doesn't exist, that determines planes of height
: Unless you are Jax who doesn't care what kind of weapon he gets handed and still would kick ass, why would a character willingly choose a weapon that doesn't make sense? Wouldn't that just be holding them back?
Well, depends on what you think "makes sense" as long as someone is trained to use a weapon they can use it whether they're a giant or a yordle
: thats ridiculous. company basically going against its own terms of use
Smurfs are allowed, and they could easily change the terms of use to exclude riot sold accounts from no bought accounts
: and yet even in his lore it is stated that no one realy knows what the F Amumu is. Human Child? Yordle? All we know is that you start to shrivel if he touches you.
Children are humans too
: scythes also fit into a fantasy demon theme, or legendary warrior theme, honestly aside from scythes I think riot should broaden their category of weapon types that characters can use or are at least able to use. all the champions have unique weapons theres no doubt, but even jarvan uses a modified polearm type weapon, numerous champions use swords and types of bows (vayne is currently the only crossbow user), depending on how you view him thresh uses a kusari-gama , and talon uses a fan dagger, regardless they should be open to more types of weapons and might even get some interesting ideas for tactical gameplay when champions with those weapons are implemented.
twitch uses a crossbow too
: why does a skin even take any effort on their part? i received pirate ryze as a freebie and that skin only has him in a pirate costume...his Q isn't even exchanged with a cannonball
Because first off, they have to think of what abilities will look like (if they're doing a skin that change particles) Then how to pull it off, and do some rigging if anything at all has a new model Then they have to make sure it can pull off the look They also have to have a splash art for it Then there's also making sure there's no visual glitches They also normally release series skins in bulk so then it has to wait for more champions design process to be done There's also a lot of human and communication error involved Something of quality takes time, and they have to make sure they can make money off of these, otherwise it was wasted time, and riot needs money to pay the people who do this, and also for their programs, and every other employee, and to run servers, and internet, the list goes on and on. Unappreciative people like you don't realise how hard it is to do any of this, and then instead of looking at the masterpieces they've created, you look at very old skin (like at the time where they were just recolors) and then complain about how low quality it is (even though it was a free skin that you got, and an inexpensive one so they couldn't put much into it without losing money).
: Doesn't matter, because birds > dragons. If you can't understand this, you are not worthy of playing Swain.

: Why do Ad champs get 3 MR with AD options, and AP champs get 1 armor with AP option?
MrHaZeYo (NA)
: LW and Cleaver should get the Stareks/Maw treatment. Leathilty should be melee only.
The problem is, they aren't both shields like stareks and maw, ones an armor pen, and ones an armor shred. And they both work completely differently. Also Lethality is more broken on melee champs than it is adcs, i don't get why everyone is a sore ass after an adc or two uses lethality, especially when hecarim, rengar, khazix, and so many others are abusing it so much harder, while all being melee

It'd be impossible to stack lethality - THE hardest nerf to lethality possible. no, it wouldnt. ghostblade would still stack with other lethality items, runes and masteries. there is no issue when lethality is stacked with each other. what are you talking about? you could even stack OTHER lethality sources with % penetration of last whisper or the shred from cleaver. it would only be inefficient to stack those 3 specific items. > 2. Black Cleaver is functionally a completely different item. so are maw and steraks gage. yet, riot managed to put same name passives on those two items. > I don't even know how it'd have to work to not "stack". What, Lethality and LW ignore the armor SHRED? That'd imply every single armor shred effect in the game would be ignored. youre overcomplicating things. what changes is not the interaction with armor shred itself. if a person had all 3 items in his inventory, ghostblades and last whispers armor pen passive would simply be disabled. the person would be able to apply cleaver stacks but not benefit from the armor pen on those two items. other armor shred sources, or the interaction between lethality and armor shred arent effected. only the passives on those 3 items arent functional on the same champion. for example, it would still be possible for someone to shred an opponents armor with cleaver, and another champion with ghostblade to make use of that reduced armor and the lethality on his ghostblade. because the interaction with ghostblades lethality and the armor shred debuff from cleaver itself didnt change. > 3. They would still de facto stack, just like Maw and Sterak stack depending on which item is triggered first, or how all Hextech items share their cooldowns, but you still decide which effect will be applied. there are multiple solutions to this. but the easy option would just be to have last whispers % penetration always apply over ghostblades flat penetration. basically the rule of armor penetration formula is first shred then % pen then flat pen. the 3 item passives could follow the same rule to decide which passive takes precedence over the other item passives.
What he's saying about lethality, is that each lethality item would need a named passive for this to work, which means that you wouldnt be able to stack lethality
