: He's not always challenger (I believe he used to hover around low Diamond), and by looking at literally any clip of his he's there on mechanics alone. He constantly makes mistakes that you'd expect from *bots*, not even from low Iron. I'd honestly rather have my bronze III brother on my team, because at least he'll fucking listen to the goddamned team and won't go full ape if he gets even slightly tilted. He knows how to play his champions. That's about it. Dude has zero idea how to balance the game, how to deal with other champions who he doesn't autowin against, or how to form a good idea. They're not discrediting him based off his gameplay (please ignore the fact that I was trashing on his terrible gameplay earlier, that's unrelated to discrediting him). They're discrediting him off of the fact that **every** time he loses it's because a champion/rune/item is busted, or it's better jungle/mid/bot, or Riot's bias for champions, or literally anything besides the fact that he might not have been good enough.
Hash forces fights and trades even in bad match ups. He likes over extending which makes him a prime target for getting camped. He doesn’t want to accept that some champs just have oppressive laning phases that you can’t win against even with great mechanics. A ton of his rants happen in early game just for that reason. That being said, I’m a bronze player who only plays top and can pretty much only win lane playing Warwick, so what do I know.

: Respect his fury bar and back up when its full. He has fairly long cooldowns early on so your ideal time to hit him is when he's low fury and spells on CD. You will spend most lanes against him playing passively because he has immense power over most lanes early on. Depending who you play you either want to wait until a major power spike like first back or a finished item to fight him, or minimise interaction and just wait for grouping to beat him in the 5v5
I haven’t really tried playing around cool downs because I’m not good at it. I’ll practice it and hopefully do better against him. Thanks for the advice!
: just accept the fact that hes going to hit you, and you are going to die. Renekton is one of those, "win lane, lose game" champions. His main purpose is to win lane and thats about it. He does his job well, probably better than anyone besides maybe Tahm Kench
Stay under tower type of laning phase against him then. It’s not fun but I’ll do it. Thanks for the advice!
: He actually is a common pick atm. Despite his avg win rate, he's very popular, placing him at a top tier pick among players. As for what he is, he is a self-sustaining lane bully. He's quite capable of taking out half your HP bar with one combo. After the second combo, he usually ignites you for the guaranteed kill. As for how to deal with him. Legend: Tenacity/Unflinching Runes can help with his stun as well as getting Mercury Treads early on. Bonus Armor stats from your runes will also help mitigate much of his early damage. If you are in an unfavorable match up then Doran's Shield might help you with sustaining his pressure in lane. Otherwise, read up on his skills online to get a better understanding as to how they function, especially when empowered by his passive. And memorize his cooldowns. This will inform you of his weaknesses and when and where to exploit any and all openings he presents to you in game.
I guess I don’t see him often because I ban him. I always tried to fight him when he jumped on me so I guess that’s why I lose lane against him. If playing 100% passive is what I need to do to leave lane even then I’ll do it. Thanks for the advice!

: The Good, The Bad, and The League: 2/7 - 2/13
I want a unique buff to Shen. No item buffs like what you did with sunfire. Just a solid buff. Maybe make W duration scale with bonus health?
: Please Buff SHEN
Hehehe. Only way to play him is as a support? Hehehehe

: Aftershock works well too, but at the same time keep in mind grasp GIVES max hp. Not a lot but with constant procs it adds up. So that helps a little with sustain, damage, and max hp.
Aftershock is good for Shen if he is going tank or support, but Shen just a isn’t a good tank and he is a passable support. He brings one cc ability (not counting Q) and his base stats are just low. He is pretty much only played for his ultimate, which makes him feel like an enchanter that dies in 3 seconds instead of 1. And in that case he should bring guardian, but if he is top well he can’t duel as well. So it’s either play to his conditional strengths or compensate his constant weaknesses
: Grasp shen is good
I agree that it works, but do keep in mind Shen doesn’t have good base health. Grasp damage and healing scales off max health so Shen just doesn’t use it as well as other top laners.

: Skin ideas?
Would absolutely love to see Shen and zed skins if they switched places Eye of twilight zed Shadow lord Shen Maybe even a vs event for them
: I know Sylas isn't OP overall but what the actual fuck is that healing?
Can I just say for all the salty Akali mains, sylas heal is not an Akali heal. Sylas heal only procs when it hits champs. Akali could heal off minions. I think Akali should heal on champs like sylas so she can trade and stop being garbage tier now, but healing on minions gave her way too much free lane sustain.
: To this day, as a season 2 veteran, what I hate the most in this game was the addition of keystones
Hyper carries get conquerer Tanks get grasp Assassins get electrocute Shen gets... fucked over

: {{item:3010}}
Yes just like that. Except that is the only way to get mana early game

: Explain a champion lore badly. Others try guess the champion.
: The reason wasn’t a tank with an execute. It was because They wanted Pyke to be an assassin. Before he could just build full tank have amazing cdr still do damage and always get out of a fight. He is slippery as is which makes him safe but before the lethality scalings he would barely take damage and then regen what he took.
I don't want tank Pyke back at all, I just want a little more freedom in the items I can buy with him. All he can really rush is one of the three lethality items, which can get quite boring.

: All it did is force him into a specific build. I don't know why they they decided to label pyke as support when he is basically an ad assassin.
I don't want Pyke to stop being an assassin, I just want him to have a little more flexibility in what he can buy while still being just as effective as a lethality scaling Pyke.
: {{item:3071}} {{item:3065}} = 3.4 seconds added to a stun if you really want to go with those numbers. {{item:3742}} added on increases it by another 1.6 bringing to a total of **_5 SECONDS ADDED ON_**. There is a reason to his lethality, cause you know he is kind of labeled support/assassin not tank.

I wasn't really thinking through the numbers. It was more the suggestion of possible scalings
