: So, you are saying because I type a lot I'm an asshole? That doesn't sound very helpful.
It can be seen as harassment. Send a ticket to riot support.
: Why do people think flex is just norms?
A lot of people troll in flex. Or they try new roles/champs.
: FOR THE LOVE OF GOD RIOT NERF MORDEKASIER
He’s like playing vs Darius. That’s all I’m gonna say. Play Mordekaizer and learn his weaknesses.

Right? I cried a little when I saw the hotfix.
PrimeTnC (NA)
: How do you gain honor in a quick and good way with both chats muted?
Play as a team. Ping smart pings. Sometimes little things like if you are in the same lane as a carry farming I’ll just take the caster minions and one melee and leave the cannon and other melees for the carry. If you don’t have to dive the back line or initiate and your ranged carry is owning, peel for them. Even without cc if you’re a damage threat it can create space. Help jg with skuttle or invades if you have lane priority. Just little things that help your game and others.

Fuck them all I’m on the fence whether it’s riot’s fault or the player base. I feel the balance, stagnant meta and auto fill is riots hand. But when it comes to throwers and rangers it falls on us as a community. But then I’m still on the fence because if people weren’t auto filled, they probably will rage less. I wish they could do in depth research on this.

: Galio is zero fun anymore
I’m sad he’s gutted. I liked him as ap bruiser/tank mix.
: Do Americans call Zed Zee?
Much like other languages you pronounce the name of something as it’s name. When I was in the Dominican Republic they called McDonald’s, McDonald’s. They called league of legends, league of legends. Names aren’t pronounced differently when you cross countries. Or else in Spanish Zed would be pronounced zeta-ed. Good meme though.
Juxin (NA)
: Someone explain to me on what Yuumi's weaknesses are.
Weird how a large portion of the community said she’s useless when she came out and now it’s threads of “remove/gut yuumi” flooding the boards once a week. Her weaknesses are any type of cc hits her and she is dead. She’s extremely squishy. And she can’t jump back to negate cc like before. Heal reduction screws her up royally. In lane hiding in minions makes her mana pool get depleted. Flanking her and her team because she can only aim her ult one direction.
: What One Change/Addition/Removal You Want From the Preseason?
Ap bruiser items would be nice. I don’t know if that’ll be specifically for melee champs only or more for ap champs that build health/ap items. Plus I’m still convenced I can make ap bruiser Sylas work lol
IRannoxI (EUW)
: Same goes for those skilled champs with 4 skillshots like vel koz, lux, xerath, ezreal (i'll count him in) Well sure u arent going in and risking anything, you just stay in the back very savely and just 1 shot everyone while jot even risking anything. Champions like Taliyah, Cassio, ryze, etc are those skilled mages that actually require to risk your life. (Ahri doesnt count she has way to high mobility, dmg and cc)
The latter three are all battle mages (with exception of Taliyah I believe she is classified as burst) so thy have shorter ranges but better dps than the control/artillery mages you mentioned.
: Its not your fault for being hardstuck (discussion)
I feel like the math breaks down to this 40% of the matches will be in your favor. People will be on their mains, trolls on opposite team, etc. 40% of the matches will be against you. You’ll have inters, be against smurfs, people on your team that are uneasy in an autofilled role, etc. And then the last 20% it’ll be an even split. Both teams even and the match can go either way. Won 8 out of 8 rank games today. Only one dodged queue due to jg going soraka to force a dodge. And only two games where I was uneasy about teammates cooperating. Probably had 3 stomps and the other 5 I felt were even matches.
Zed Boss (NA)
: DOES ANYONE FARM ANYMORE?
Not farming was holding me back for sure. It still is my weakness but since I have been focusing it more I’ve climbed a bit more. It always makes more sense to farm until objective fights because you’ll have the item advantage when team fights come up.
: You mean smashing you with his sword. Old was just slapping the sword fast as shit and abusing the missing HP heal to just outsurvive tons of damage. New one has healthy healing and healthy damage.
Healthy is the new healthy {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
: Aatrox
Old Aatrox was just a bunch of healing too and slapping you with his sword. New Aatrox is healing and slapping you with his sword.
: Silver players should not be against diamond players in Norms.
Truth. I like a challenge but it also hurts more when you can’t do anything.
: Can someone explain to me why...
Getting manamue empowers kai sa’s isolation power and you can empower her q with just level 9 stats, manamune and pick axe. Also you can get all three abilities upgraded if you get manamanue, rageblade and mashies tooth. For mf I haven’t heard of the blood thirster one but pta with Bork and then ghost blade and black cleaver works well because her abilities still hurt but also she doesn’t fall off against tanks. It’s not a must do build but it’s a good lane bully scaling build.

KANENAS2012 (EUNE)
: Did Atreus kill Aatrox?
This is speculation but: I think this story took place after Aatrox was captured and he was in a hosts body. I think the stars reawoke because the celestiales saw Atreus worthy of the powers of pantheon. So he isn’t Pantheon but he is Atreus but he has godlike powers.

Like, do you want to be grossly generalised and treated not even as your own individual? I don't get it. I don’t think I’m the voice of the black community. I’m merely saying op is a bit of a stretch in saying how offensive this is and how the game shouldn’t be allowed. This what I call looking for a reason to be offended. You’ll never satisfy a person like this. I’ve been in the midsts of too many people who stir the pot not for progress but to be an angry voice or another unknown reason. Who knows, maybe they are trying to speak up for progress, but calling for a game to be banned because there are only two black characters and the only chained up characters are a minotaur and a white man seems extreme.

UniSect (NA)
: Is Reworkes Pantheon's E a good idea?
We will have to see how it’s used. I don’t think he can cancel his e so people can flank him or cc him out off it from what I saw on pbe playing it. I could definitely see them changing it to a damage reduction instead though. Either way I don’t think he’ll be unstoppable. He’ll probably play very similar to current panth he’ll just have more decision making.

Now he's just a screaming Nazi/russian generic movie villain. If you listen to his new voice lines you can hear he is an anguished tormented soul. He’s so afraid of being this bodiless being stuck with his own thoughts. He hates what he has been turned into and is determined to tear it all down. When he interacts with other champions it is in a mocking tone to egg them on to fight him so he can cause everyone to fight until obliteration. Start around minute 23 and TB goes over the voice lines. I’ll admit there are really silly lines but the ones that aren’t silly, where Aatrox is monologuing with himself it shows he’s not a one dimensional character unlike the old Aatrox. https://youtu.be/4evvOE78sRo

Haha right? We have concepts of what he will do and they are vague concepts. But people already acting like they got deranked because fiddle vgu is broken.
: With Swain's newfound health scaling and regeneration/draining, he needs lower innate resistances
His resistances are pretty in line. He isn't impossible to burst down and with the health per level nerf he doesn’t really get benefit from passive gains until he collects 18 souls. Just compare someone that gains health passively like Vladimir. Swain does have lower base armor than him but has bettter armor growth. Their MR is identical.

Your winrate is extremely low. This can have a heavy effect on your mmr.
Lugg (NA)
: How to fix Galio
They need to decide his identity. That’s the biggest problem. Is a a burst mage. Is he a tank. Is he an ap bruiser? Is he supposed to support? What is he supposed to be. The iteration they had before pre-season I was fine with. Loved him because he was able to tank things, defend but also able to one v one earlier on. I think an ap bruiser would be the best iteration of Galio or I would settle with a more warden play style.
: Login screens are because they're changing the client and pretty much removing them. The people that work on them, like the art and music teams, are likely already working on other projects. Everything else could be a number of things. Maybe the scheduling got fucked. Maybe the frequent leaks are messing stuff up(like Neeko/the Winter Wonder skins and Yuumi getting leaked). Maybe they're just lazy. Maybe they don't want to waste time hyping them up and want to be able to go straight into another project. Ect, ect.
I know Kayle and Morgana releases set things back a little bit from what I heard.

This is more based off how your winrate is. If you have like a 58 % winrate you’ll probably get more LP per win. I
: does going 0/6/0 in 8 mins count as inting
It depends. Signed usually has high deaths. Also I had a bot lane feed enemy jhin 6 kills in 4 min. I didn’t think they were inting but I thought they needed to play safer. They both ended with combined deaths of 28 while the rest of us had 2/3/4 deaths. Again I didn’t consider it inting and we won, but they weren’t playing very effectively in the first part of the match.

He works. I would suggest Brand if you are looking for a mage support pick though because like velkoz his passive does damage even when you lack ap items.
: What champion is similar to Velkoz?
He’s like an artillery/control mage so things like Ziggs, Lux, Xerath. I would say Xerath is the closest because he’s pure skill shots. He doesn’t have the true damage though but he can snipe just as good without even being seen.
