: I just want to see some tank busting items in the game. Tanks have been absolutely absurd for years now meanwhile everyone complains about every other class. That's why I'm not thrilled that Void Staff is getting nerfed.
{{item:3151}} they pretty much doubled down on this being the anti tank mage item
: Hashinshin finally loses it
Why do you guys take him seriously? He literally feeds everygame then blames it on balance.

: > Trash talking is so much fun when those player take it as a hit to their ego and go wild about it. Then proceed to play even worst for me to push the knife deeper and deeper into their sanity with petty little harmless comments or mastery emotes. The fact that trash talking is considered a viable strategy is absurd. I mute the moment someone starts trash talking, I don't care how 'friendly' it is.
Tilting the enemy is the best strategy muh d00d. The emote spam meta is cray git gud
: The problem with trash-talking is this: If you allow it, then where do you draw the line? How do you define that line to the playerbase? How can you say that "x is okay" but "y is not"? My view is that you either allow it entirely across the board, or absolutely disallow it altogether. The reason for this is because everyone has their own definition of what is reasonable, acceptable or offensive. Personally, I am not offended by anything, at all.. it's a video game----who cares what people think of you or say to you? But, not everyone is as thick-skinned as I am. So, you have to define, in very clear terms, what is appropriate and what isn't and then enforce it exactly as is written.
"where do you draw the line" is a weak argument, as it can be applied to anything.
: Can We Have More MALE 'Magic-Born' Champions?
Mordekaiser is heavily implied to have had magic influence over metal before his resurrection
: "I'd rather have a toxic teammate than a bad one"
If i'm playing ranked, this goes without saying. Muting is far too easy of an action to warrant the idea of having subpar players over a toxic dipshit. However, one should also consider the toxic teamates impact on people who don't use the mute button/who are very defensive/combative/sensitive. It could be possible that a toxic persons negative influence over the rest of the team would result in worse results then just having a single shitter on the team. Someone should do a study on this lol
: You know what I feel is going to be really problematic down the line? Mordekaiser's many themes being used in other VGU's. Yorick got his Necromancy shtick Swain got the whole soul-eating with his passive And Aatrox is gonna be the Warlord with heavy weapons Like, what's going to be left for Morde once it's his turn?

: Riot actually thinks akali laning pattern "isnt strong enough" to deal with most laners
lol people are so ass mad about akali they actually think her laning phase is good LOL
: The year of the ban is what the ban was for. I _think_ 2203 is the ban code for scripting, usually due to purchasing an account which was botted to lvl 30. Either that or using a third party program which gives an in-game advantage of some kind. Not accusing specifically, but for context it's really easy to level a fresh account to 30 now, no idea why anyone would buy one. Other than that it could be for scripting in other ways (booster used script, etc.) If none of the above applies then by all means contact player support to get it sorted out bro. Hope that helps. {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}}
It still takes almost 100+ games to level an account. Can you link a source claiming otherwise.
: Dear Riot; You've created a Monster
Jinx has been bad for almost 2 years what
: @Riot, so tell me again, Why are you STILL working on Rengar?
Success =/= A reason not to rework someone For example, Nunu is going to be broken this patch. This is a fact. Should we no longer consider reworking nunu because he is preforming well?
: The problem isn't that tanks are dealing damage, the problem is when Alistar can burst your ADC from 100% to 20% in 3 seconds.
3 seconds is a huge amount of time in league wat
: I don't think that's going to be possible unless they're able to make new Doran's items for duo-laning melees. Mages wouldn't have a reason to go bot. Melees can't go bot because melee = support fucks them.
Some mages, {{champion:115}} {{champion:69}} have already shown that they have reasons to, and can indeed function, within the bot-lane. A better statement would have been, "I do not feel that the majority of mages currently have a reason to go bot".

: Nope. Some sh*t in Runeterra is just straight evil for evil's sake. Evelynn is a prime example. She was once a smol force of darkness that became a swole force of darkness by feasting on the misery and suffering caused by the Rune Wars. She now inflicts misery and suffering for their own sake. She was born by, and lives for, misery and suffering.

Rainfall (EUNE)
: if you were an employee at riot you would 100% ignore the community,it's the company policy.
>if you were an employee at riot you would 100% ignore the community,it's the company policy. This is such a bullshit comment. Like HOLY SHIT Riot communicates with its community the most out of any single video game company of their size. This is a fucking FACT. These boards are such circlejerking garbage now. Thank god the reddit exists.
: why is it that any time riot begrudgingly touches towers there's also a compensation nerf this isn't how you fix the problem. just fucking buff towers with no strings attached for once sheesh.
I love when they "buff" shitty champs, but then gut something else as "compensation"
: "There is so much ** that needs nerfs I can't believe they didn't nerf anything"
GripaAviara (EUNE)
: Interesting because the game runs for more than 6 years and the boards were never so negative. This either means there is a real problem in the game or that the game drove away most of the positive people and remained only with negative ones

Do you think the correct way to balance is removing champion weaknesses? Thank god you aren't on the balance team LMAO You don't remove a champion's weakness, you buff their strengths. If people like you were in charge, literally every champion would have the same kit . "Hur dur garen need dash on q cus mobility"
: "Mages are so weak! weakest class in the game!!" - top winrate champs are almost always a mage
LEL To be fair, I do understand the complaints surrounding mage itemization, however, the majority of people circle jerking about it don't. The issue is that mage itemization suffers from 2 major issues, that being that A: Every Mage has a standard 4 - 5 Item build that will rarely change from game to game (Stagnant Build Paths) B: Most Individual Mage items are really fucking boring. The top 3 mage items right now, aka the ones included on most mage builds, are {{item:3165}}, a Ball of stats with a passive (Grevious Wounds) that is niche in application and viability, BUT, because of how good the stats themselves are, the item is mandatory on almost every single mage. {{item:3135}} is cheap, free damage amplification. {{item:3151}} Makes you kill shit extra gooder. Most all AP items also suffer from really boring, generic build paths. This is really noticeable when you compare these items to their AD counterparts. Oh, {{item:3089}} is also far more expensive than it deserves to be. Especially in the current meta. Now, there are some AP items that I would consider good design choices. {{item:3100}} {{item:3157}} {{item:3285}} {{item:3030}} {{item:3152}}. All 3 of these items have actives/passives that can be insanely powerful on some champions, or some situations, however, due to ball of stats AP items being so much better universally, and the amount of interesting AP items being restricted to those above, they don't feel as good as they should. Any Items I didn't mention are either: Balls of stats, but, are not currently utilized by the majority of champions or B: bad on both counts, plus are so niche that only 1 champion will purchase them (every {{item:3070}} Item) My point here, is that people claiming mages are "weak", are completely wrong, AND those who then substantiate that claim by blaming itemization even... wronger (lel). AP items have power, the issue is the power is hamfisted into raw stats, boring build paths, and non-interactive items
: League of Graphs makes a point about Sona
Maybe riot should stop trying to balance for all elo's, as it just puts the game in a shittier state overall? Its fucking stupid.
: that's just the nature of the boards. People dont come here to find ways to get better, they come here to feel validated that hey fail. Why do people complain so much about champs they lose against? and when you give them tips or obvious weaknesses, they just shrug it off and say "lol another X main"
"I lost my silver V promos cus a malz ulted me nerf pls" :((((
: Good. It's supposed to be high risk, high reward. Mistakes SHOULD be punished. That's what separates good players from better ones at the end of the day. Personally, I love lanes where one mistake will immediately cost you your life. It's excellent for self-improvement and forces you to think about decisions. You guys really want a stable meta where every game is 50 mins long and teams can just keep coming back because no mistake gets punished enough even at later stages of the game? Where's the fun in that? Just keep derping every game and not even realize you're playing badly? Granted, some champions need nerfing in the damage department, but the direction the game took this pre-season has been good overall. You learn or you keep losing.
Again, another well thought out comment getting down-voted by casuals I love it, instead of getting good at the game, these losers cry out for changes to make things easier for them Yeah, you misplayed and died Yeah, you deserve to get fucked and lose your turret for it Yeah, if you misplay again, you deserve to fucking lose Get Fucking Good
: Nah, just learn to play from behind, i've had lots of games where i lost lane but instead of trying to fight i just took the safe route and farmed. If you get too low in lane, recall, or face the risks of getting CC'd and killed. Died twice in lane? Maybe change how you play because 2 times isnt somerthing to shrug off. I'd be a lot more pissed if i won lane, played right, but the game was forgiving enough that my 0-2 enemy could fight me regardless and have a fair fight.
I like you you get downvoted for calling out these shitters crying about how they get punished for being bad at the game. "Wahhh I died because I misplayed and the enemy took my turret :((((("

: We don’t actually know how long it took for Noxus to form after Mordekaiser’s defeat. Though you made one point that is evidence of Demacia and Noxus being at war with each other. Sion did kill J1 during a Demacian attack on Noxus Prime. Edit: but that also isn’t a metaplot. That’s just history.
Noxus formed almost instantly after Mordekaiser's defeat This is confirmed by a rioter
Hibeki (NA)
: 1) Fiora is currently a bruiser because she is forced to build many health items. Again, because of the meta, skirmisher and duellist roles are not viable because they get obliterated before they can do anything. 2) Fiora is forced to BUILD into the bruiser path, whereas Darius is a natural bruiser forced to build full tank. There is a clear difference here.
1) lmao fiora has never built full ad and been viable in her current form 2) Darius does not build "full tank", and fiora does not build "full bruiser". 3) You somehow jumped from fiora and darius being the same thing, to suddenly claiming they are actually different. weird huh?
Hibeki (NA)
: All of those things are the same with bruisers. Just a dumb name for it.
Are you claiming there is no difference between Fiora and Darius? :)
Hibeki (NA)
: Darius is a jugg solely because his role as a fighter would not be possible without basically building straight tank. Juggernauts are actually just fghters who have to build straight tank in order to be viable in this meta.
lol, WHAT? Darius was literally one of the Original 4 who champion'd the introduction of Juggarnauts as a class. What are you talking about? >Juggernauts are actually just fghters who have to build straight tank in order to be viable in this meta. lmao no. A jugg's defining feature is literally the fact that they scale heavily with HP, and that they can TAKE and DEAL very high amounts of damage. Also, Darius doesnt even build straight tank lmaoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
koshkyra (NA)
: Why the fuck is scorch being nerfed
D357R0Y3R (EUW)
: because most fighters do not have the ability to kill squishy targets that are outside of their range!!!! of course in a situation where players do not do any mistake, position properly and protect the targets that should be protected which is why Darius has 25% free armor penetration "for no reasons" if tanks could just casually ignore him while cc'ing him without risk he wouldn't be able to do anything and kill any targets that being said, that is Darius right now as he's really bad :(
Darius is a jugg OP isn't counting juggs as fighters for the purposes of this discussion.

It's *daggers* for *assassins*, and the assassin class was meant to rush them. Giving ADCs an item conducive to large burst in short periods of time, and ADCs are a class meant for whittling down the front line from afar, it kinda seems wonky that at 2900 gold you finish your lethality item which lets you shitstomp everyone in lane with a couple Qs and autos
: I don't feel like his winrate unrelated problems can be resolved by simple change of numbers, though.
Making his stealth not bullshit would be an excellent start. He has a lower detection range than {{champion:107}} and {{champion:28}}. Two MELEE who can only burst ONE person, while he can "DPS" an entire team in 3 seconds. The fuck????
Skorch (NA)
: The thread is for Mages that dont burst OR poke, like malz. For burst. JUST GO ELECTOCUTE, you are losing 7 base AP, and the option of scorch (better on poke) or gathering storm (Worth is if you find the AP from this more worth than the increase in damage of electrocute.) If you REALLY want that burst, JUST GO ELECTROCUTE. Domination isnt awful for mages, there is literally nothing stopping you.
You wont even be losing that 7 AP after next patch Domination and Sorcery are being equalized
: Rylais feels like a wasted slot
It even feels bad on {{champion:82}}, someone whom it should be a priority purchase
: @ Riot: Please do not change Grasp to benefit another class besides Tanks and Juggernauts.
This change is a direct buff to juggernauts and tanks what are you on about What is this post even In what world is any diver going to get more value out of new grasp when compared to juggs or tanks. Camille is not going to forgo 15 AD, and all early game offensive capability, just to have less than 30 ategame ad from a proc that requires 4 full seconds of combat to acquire

Quick Google dictionary definition gave me this; "An activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment."
