: Shen: A discussion
I'd say Shen is in a fairly balanced state right now. He's strong in certain matchups and weak in others. His ult though, makes him relevant whether he's strong or weak.
: My Patch Notes
Blitzcrank's change is pretty neat, but why does ahri need buffs?
: Bot lane is starting to replace heal by teleport
It's probably because adc get 100-0 no clown before they can even activate heal, so they take a summs with more map control instead.

: slows simply aren't on the same level as hard crowd control, do not compare them. Fizz and wukong only have CC on their **ultimate.** Zed , akali , kat ,kha'zix and talon all lack hard cc. Rengar can only ROOT (not stun or pull) a target if he has full ferocity, and has to give up on empowered Q burst to use that CC. Ekko and shaco's hard CC is simply unreliable, and easy to avoid. Leblanc's Root is delayed and can be avoided since it is a) a skillshot and b) can be walked out of. Very few assassins have truly reliable CC, and it is rare to find it outside their ultimates. Pyke on the other hand has a pull and a AOE stun, Although they are a little unreliable in their own way, its simply on another level compared to the base kit of other assasins

You're saying how assassin has like LB skillshot is delayed is a skillshot when both pyke's pull and stun are the same thing. You can sidestep both his Q and E.
: Pyke has a stun and a pull. The only other assassin with a stun has a much higher difficulty in actually landing it, and we've seen what happened when he was strong (both regular and tank Ekko were balance nightmares)

Talon would be so much weaker if his rake didn't slow.
: Most assassins don't come with a bunch of CC. If you tried to make an actual solo lane assassin with the kind of kit Pyke has, they would be horribly unbalanced.

Talon has slow, LB has root, Kassadin has slow, fizz has knock aside, Shaco has fear and slow, rengar has slow and root, Ekko has slow and stun, Kha has slow, nocturne has is fear. Only Kat and Akali are ones without a CC.
xMotus (EUW)
: A lot point and click CC was removed. How about Malzahar and Lissandra ult ?
That's fine with me. Just gut ADC and assassin mobility while we're at it so they can't pop in 100-0 then pop out without risk. I'm saying this as someone who enjoys assassins.

You only get banned if you're being repeatedly toxic after several warnings. Saying "kys" would net you a 14 day ban, so you must be extremely toxic to get a perma.

However, there's an entire world wide web out there between your ISP and Riot's gaming servers. All of which could affect your ping. Doing a simple internet speed test might not be a definitive litmus test. Then since your connection is a living thing, this might not even be a 100% solution anyway. I'm sure we've all had ping issues arise mid game at like the 25 minute mark. Then it isn't your fault. However, if it's something you can prevent from going wrong, it doesn't hurt.

: I get the same 35 percent win rate player back to back in promos
A normal 20 games with a 50% win rate is 10 wins and 10 loses. You lose the first game to an afk, it's then 9 wins and 11 loses. You have a bad matchup the next game and lose that, it's 8 wins and 12 loses. Someone on your next game throws a hissy fit and loses the game. It's 7 wins and 13 loses. Now you're off a 3 game loses streak on tilt. That's how you get a 35% win rate.

: I applaud you for playing Udyr in the top lane. he's really cool when you start popping off with those tiger claws. But he has some REALLY bad match-ups. Namely, Jayce and Quinn. You're always going to be at risk of having a terrible laning phase if you're picking immobile champions before the enemy reveals their pick.

Neither Teemo or Gnar has a disgusting disengage in ranged form. Even Jayce has to change to Hammer form to disengage.
