: i didn't mean to assume you meant spam every character, was just using that as an example of why stressing off-meta characters isn't always the go-to strategy as it is both time consuming and often not worth it. Agreed with a few of your points on Malzahar benefitting from current game pacing; most of his opponents are not champions that feel confidently powerful rushing QSS and most champions that do (Ryze/Cassio) are weak for the majority of the playerbase. Disagree that those champions are counters to a properly played malzahar though, but it was a worthy observation to say that looking into counters and meta-state are key to proper analysis -- but Malzahar was also one of the highest WR mid champions prior to preseason and ever since we made his most recent changes. Personally, I believe him to just be overtuned on the cooldown front -- his ultimate CD/Q CD in particular make me scratch my head. Cool post and analysis about the meta, though. Happy new year to you as well!

Happy new year to you as well! can you play 10 games of sivir/lucian to realize how painfully numb it feels to play low range ADC's? would like to see them have the same range as vayne who is a intensified hypercarry. why bother pick weaker right clickers when you can just pick hypercarries with longer range? it's completely dumb when J4 ults and you cant even attack people at the end of J4s ult as lucian/sivir
: Why Safe League Players Will Never Climb and Why Feeders Determine 94% of Games
there's a difference between playing safe and being a KDA player. i was stuck in gold all of season 2 by being a KDA player but i hit D1 in season 3 by being consistently safe, i got master in S4 by being safe/dominant. its easy being dominant until around plat 3 but overall the team with the least shit to deal with wins now

this should be said about all hypercarries, they are shining at a time where games last shorter then ever. i hope riot fixes it before season 8 starts, but we all know whats gonna happen. they will just nerf gragas lux blitz or some random shit

In Diamond games, at 30-35 minutes champs will be hitting 4 items (not including boots) which more or less is endgame where these champs do quite well. For your first point, Isnt it scarier that in Plat+ Vayne ( the one whom is supposed to be lane bullied ) is sporting 53% win rate? If anything higher elo should drag her w/r down if games are shorter. For your second point, The point is that these champs are kicking off late game power AT 10-15 minutes, at 30-35 its practically a free win. Look at Twitch, past 40 minutes hes a 59.8% win rate Other late game champs are like that but they shouldnt be strong this much, so early.

: Because casuals apparently don't like the idea of a pure solo queue, and the casual audience is Riot's main focus since 2016 when they introduced Dynamic Queue. That isn't me trying to roast anyone or be rude, it is a fact. Most "casual" people come in with friends, because of friends, or bring in friends. They don't want to play alone, and Riot prefers them for some reason. I would LOVE a solo ONLY queue, but at this point, the fact Riot is still keeping that terrible Flex queue that is a mess on top of a mess, it is clear they don't care about it.

: While there is no evidence of lulu kog being duo que, I do 100% agree with solo Q being purely Solo. And your not alone, every youtuber I watch has complained about it being unfair when a challenger duo que bot gets matched with diamond and master teir players. 1st challenger facing anything but challenger is unfair 2nd if they are duo qing even without coms, they are experenced with each other. They know exactly when the other is going in and .2 of a second = a kill which they don't have a problem with. As for counter arugments in the future, that may land about Que times with challenger being restricted to challenger. League's last reported player base known per month was 100million. So sure itll be longer than the que's but 100million players odd are there will be 10 challengers. So they do get to play. On lower ello's the effect is not as bad, though still statically they are about 60-70% to win again vs 50% 50% to win as normal meaning an unfair advantage between 10-20% simply by people being a duo que.
