: Malphite W percent armor passive not working correctly
Thanks! I didn’t even notice. I’ve been picking him up and it’s been great.
: Riot needs to delete malphite
I dunno. I just recently picked him up and it’s fun. Beat a Darius, Vayne and Kayle so far. I just like being able to coordinate with the team and with the new w farming is much easier.
: Kayle lol back please
Huh? I’ve got a 64% winrate on Kayle right now I’m almost 50 games so if you’re saying she isn’t good I’m gonna need an explanation why.

: Can we just remove the concept of a "1v5 champ" from the game
I dunno. Played malphite earlier and seemed like I was his weakness with an ult full combo.
Drezder (EUNE)
: How many losses does it take for you to demote from Gold 4 to Silver 1?
I think it depends on your winrate. Usually if you’re positive you shouldn’t fall after 1-3 losses at 0 LP. But if you have a positive winrate you should be ok.

Bruisers have nowhere near the utility tanks have. > > Issue is utility is less meaningful in solo queue than it is in tournament play. Yes, tanks can be strong when teammates take full advantage of their power. Which outside of the pro scene, just doesn't happen. Thus, tanks go in, do their thing, get 0 follow up from teammates, and get utterly destroyed the moment their cc is over. I think we need a different approach to tanks because having tanks viable only on the pro scene is just bad. If you have any ideas, share them :)
The best thing I do is hover around adc and mid laner after a certain point. And try making tp plays bot during lane phase. It does suck with no follow up but pinging ults and targeting people usually helps prep my team to know I’m looking for engage.

I don't play him myself but I feel sorry for those that do. But you see yourself, you are just a bystander. I play him a lot, he is still the old Aatrox, but now with actuall skill expression. Revive was what everyone around you saw, you saw the 1v9 Drain Tank that he still is. Whoever calls him Riven 2.0 should really play both of them a bit.
Yeah no he is not the same. Honestly having played and mained a drastically changed champion (Swain) it’s ok to get a different kit while still having the essence of the original. What I remembered from Aatrox was he would heal a ton and never die. New Aatrox heals a ton and never dies. He has a dash like old Aatrox, has a knock up and has a skill shot slow. Old Aatrox had heal, knock up, dash, skill shot slow. Yes he plays different but the essence is still there.
Koiyaki (NA)
: Because no matter how advanced technology is, human error still exists and computers still bug out. Why Does wow still do bug fixea every patch? Why does windows computers still have problems? Why do isps still have internet outages after schedualed maintenance? Problems happen. Thats just life, no system is infallible.
Thank you. Working in development I wished people understood this. No matter how many people and how much money someone has, you can’t test all the bugs out.
: Melee champions without dashes are worthless
I’m going to have to disagree with ya on that one. Illaoi and Darius both hold 50% win rate or higher from iron to plat+. I for one play Darius and he has plenty of tools to help him get past his weakness. For example taking tenacity in his rune tree, merc treds, phage, dead mans, steraks and if you want unflinching. They can’t hold you down and you move faster than people expect. You don’t need a dash to be effective, you just need to be smart in your game play.
: Balance Matchmaking In All Ques
It’s probably people thank want to play league, haven’t played norms in who knows how long, and are playing while rank is down. The mmr on normal games is different than rank mmr.

Jagi (NA)
: This patch is probably the worst patch that was pushed
Annie gets perma stacks until she dies. It’s a pretty buggy patch. Hopefully something can be done soon. I hope they turn off rank.
: chat disconnected. not banned.
: How many champions do you own?
: What does it take to get allies to coordinate with their tank?
It’s so true. The tanks I use are Ornn, Malphite and Shen. Luckily with Shen I can join the fight. But most the time I just hover as close as possible to whoever is strong on my team or has equal parts cc and damage. That way I can initiate for them while they go ham. It sucks when you know the most optimal play but people won’t group for it so the best thing we can do is be ready to make a play by staging next to key allies.
: I can't get out of bronze
What helped me climb from bronze to gold was pick a few champs (like 3). worked on csing above all things because in bronze all people want to do is fight so if you have the gold lead at most stages of the game you will win fights. And understand that it’s ok to lose but every game play to win. You can’t control other people so always be looking for “what can i do to get better”. The more you have that on your mind the more fun every math becomes AND you climb because you’re the only common denominator that goes from match to match. I promise if you just work on creep score you’ll see an improvement.
: Playing with locked or unlocked camera?
I played from 2014-2017 with locked camera. My friends roasted me hard lol. But what I did was play a sona for like 30 games on unlocked camera. Unlocked really helps because I’m able to more easily land skill shots, you can see what you’re about to run into better, and overall map awareness goes up. Try playing a bunch of games on a support that doesn’t have a ton of skill shots. Even try bots first so the pressure is less. This did help me go from silver 4 to gold 3 if that helps any.
: that last part is blatantly false. you even said it yourself it will minimize player frustration therefore minimize typing of most kinds. this also means a perfectly balanced game would also have match making fixed. at that point the true "toxic" people would be left and easy to weed out.
How is it blatantly false? You can have players who are good at the game but still are toxic in chat. Those two attributes can coexists. What I’m saying is even if the game is balanced people will still jump down each other’s throats for a bad game because guess what, it’s a competitive game and there are always winners and losers. Not everyone responds positively to the idea of losing and they will blame teammates.

Eh I think we are where we belong. I have friends who I’ve passed up who I thought were better than me but it’s because I’ve done the things to better myself instead of blaming others. Again I don’t think a single elo is elo hell. Again I think it’s a state of mind of feeling stuck.
: Elo Hell does exist and let me explain you what it is.
I think elo hell is a state of feeling stuck and you feel like you’re not climbing.
: Kayn Jungle
For blue Kayn just take electrocute. He already moves faster than a Kenyan. Plus if you take ghost blade and mobility boots. You don’t want your opponent having the heads up (besides the indicator when you’re in a wall) that you’re coming. And he already does a ton of damage so predator would be overboard. Build lethality. You won’t need the crit. If they start building armor either get last whisper or black cleaver. For red Kayn take conqueror. You basically never die. Get black cleaver after jungle item and then probably either GA or spirit visage depending what you are fighting. Then get deaths dance and you’ll be unkillable. With kayn’s E You basically are bard and talon’s love child so use unique gank paths. Also you can get over some walls with q so save your e if you can just q over the wall. But anyway look for the lanes where you have allies with cc in them and gank from behind so you can get as many hits on them as possible. You wanna try going for the transformation ASAP and then you can farm and scale more. But remember take this with a grain of salt and be flexible.
: that comes with good game balance. this is a lazy solution if you ask me
True but the game could be 100% balanced and people will still be toxic against each other. Edit: a more balanced game will minimize player frustration but you will still see people cussing at each other, calling each other garbage, etc at the same rates.

: @Riot Swain Ultimate
Is this aimed at the upcoming changes or just the current live Swain?
: How do I keep up my farm during the mid game as an assassin?
Catch side lanes. Usually, especially if you’re ahead, no one can contest you. Plus you have escapes. Always take control wards to set up vision in case someone tries to come fight or collapse on you.

It’s people’s behavior. I don’t care about getting flamed because if I truly don’t want to see it I mute. But some of the delusional crap that comes from people’s mouths is nuts.

Maybe I misunderstood what you were saying. But it sounded like you were saying there is a necessity for a self mute feature.
: Also satisfying seeing the "Riot will never implement self mutes/accommodate toxic players" assertion be invalidated
It’s not Riot’s job to control your emotions/tempers. Their job is to try and make it to make sure chat is an enjoyable environment as possible.

: Lee sin starting items ?
Try it out and let people know.
: wHy ArE pEoPle TOxIC
Darius has a 53% winrate against tryndamere in diamond plus. It’s a lot more counter play to what tryn does because like you said if you q he’s going to spin out. Tryndamere usually wins late game because of his split potential so his come backs are higher than Darius’. But overall lane phase, objective control, team fight Darius is going to win more often. But it of course is up to how the player plays. I’m sure you would trash me on Tryndamere if I were playing Darius.
Drathlord (EUNE)
: Man R bonus hp get nerfed to 125/200/275 from 150/275/400, also Bonus hp per level lowered from 90 to 85, thats the huge u need 18 stacks for that and 25 stacks for R rank 3 to solve this nerf. So after 25 stacks every stack is buff but 25 stacks is a solid number and u need time to collect that amount. Also cd of q is okay but range is a solid nerf too.
Yes q and aa range were lowered. But it makes sense because then his poke would be super dumb. Stacking won’t be a problem I don’t think. I usually have 5 souls by level 4. It will just incentivize grouping sooner because of the cc and deaths flying around.
: Gj Riot, You nerfed Swain to the point he is not worth playing again....
Let’s wait until he’s on live servers and we can actually make a judgement call. Pbe is a testing environment but it doesn’t have the same results as ranked games. Heck it’s even crazier than normal draft on live servers.
datfatguy (OCE)
: Can leblanc carry?
Yes. But since she’s an assassin you gotta go for those moments of chaos or disorder so you can pop in to kill the squishies before people can react. If the enemy team groups you gotta get them flanks and sneak attacks.
: @Riot Aatrox lines in regards to revive removal
I hope this gets triple the upvotes.
: Why is Sions pickrate so low?
He isn’t underpowered. People just don’t play as many tanks right now.
: I want to get into Kayn
You better get into him before he gets into you But really though. With red Kayn it’s good to go warrior (blue smite), black cleaver. Third item is situational(heavy ad team) guardian angel, (heavy ap or strong ap) spirit visage. I would definitely suggest getting both because you’ll be unkillable but look at what you’re up against to make the decision which one first. Deaths dance is a good next item because again you’ll never die. Runes conqueror, triumph, (heavy cc team) tenacity if not alacrity, and coupe de grace. Then secondary your choice but I usually go taste of blood and ravenous hunter for more healing. Attack speed minor rune for jg clear, adaptive damage and armor again for jg survivability.
Lapantino (EUW)
: remembering W damage, it seems like the same if you doing nothing during CC, don't you think? expecially vs mages. it's actually can be useful vs riven and rene if they are not OTP
With ap users it’s better to remain mobile so yeah w seems just like a passive stacking tool. But many times in top lane it’s better to counter the cc. Yes you’re sitting there doing nothing but if it’s ad you reduce incoming damage AND and at the end of the cc you can do the damage with w and probably have your cd back. It’s like being a ninja from naruto and having things planned ahead of time.
: How can u remove main thing from a champion?
The revive barely happens now. If you get a kill on ult you kind of snowball very well. Plus other high elo players feel it wasn’t something that needed to be there. And Aatrox’s whole thing is being a blood lust warrior who heals through the fight.
: Well now I feel stupid for typing this lol but at least Riot knows hes in a bad spot
Haha it’s ok. I love Swain too and have been able to do well. But he’s he feels like the old feast or famine which is what they were trying to avoid by reworking him in the first place. So I’m glad this change is coming. Can’t wait.
: Ashe is OP and needs nerfs
It’s just a good build on Ashe. She isn’t op. You get assassins in there and she’s crying.
