Rioter Comments
: Why? No competitive game balances around average players.
League is not competitive balance and never will be. The devs are not interested on making it competitive on the slightest at all and instead want to make it fun to watch. That's why they push champions in or out of the competitive play with reasons like "We haven't seen them on the stage on a while" (real reason for one of lee sin buiffs, it appeared on patch notes). Broken builds are fun to watch, they might not be as fun to play against but it definitely catches attention. That is the reason like other game build like Street Fighter Turbo came out and became a hit. Even league with the original URF had a significant attention span despite being the opposite of balanced.

THANK YOU! Pro play is completely irrelevant to most of the playerbase, balancing around it is ridiculous. Riot should balance around high elo, NOT pro play. There's nothing that justifies ruining a champion for the average playerbase that uses said champion every day because of pro players who will stop using the champion as soon as they find something better to abuse.
It should be balanced around the average player.... let the small pro base go nuts with broken builds and champions. 90% of the player base won't care

I think in its current form, it is way too strong, but it could be balanced with little effort. Give it a %Hp cost. That would balance it at either value and wouldn't make the other player feel cheated. Yeah your skill shot got deleted but he had to pay for it. That or make it only cultivable whenever his flow bar is full. So... he either get a shield or a windwall, not both.
: I've invested 5 skins in Sejuani and I feel like it was the worst investment I have ever made.
I have all sejuani skins.... I only can play her with my friends so they can cover me and won't flame when inevitably I will fall behind
: When a tank can only tank based on how many enemy champions it manages to put a hard cc on and how often they can... This is what the game has turned into for tanks, if youre out of cc, then youre dead. It doesn't matter if youre supposed to get hit, getting hit is the end of the world, even for tanks. If youre a tank without any meaningful cc, you are going to die very very fast.
at that point you are better playing {{champion:555}} or {{champion:497}} where you can still apply the same amount of CC (or comparable) while still have access to your other utility assets. The point of a tank was that you could apply more than one rotation of hard CC, and damage throw at you was mostly wasted
: After playing 50+ games of Nexus Blitz, 3 Things Need to Be Removed
Honestly the events are the problem. Depending on the reward, whoever wins the first even wins the whole thing. The only one I see somewhat balanced is the catapult
: when you die in the fire it rewards the kill to the highest person on the scoreboard on the enemy team but its currently bugged when that person is dead and it rewards the kill the to highest person on the scoreboard on your team instead of the second highest on the enemy team
So is a bug, huh? I was surprised to get gold while being dead and I got to reset my bounty count. It was a good result considering I had 100Hp and I wouldnt have survived the ring of fire anyway

: Do you think Zoe needs a rework? As sad as that sounds.
{{champion:142}} {{champion:157}} {{champion:122}} {{champion:143}} {{champion:412}} {{champion:429}} {{champion:143}} and most recently {{champion:84}} What does all these champions have in common? All of them have been broken beyond belief at one point or another and all of them have been designed (for the most part) by the same person. Really that guy needs to re evaluate his way of thinking when it comes to design, yeah all of them are fun to play as, yeah all of them have cool and unique mechanics, yeah all of them are quite flashy and can feel rewarding but.... All of them are annoying to play against (to the point it feels unfair) and all of them seems to have no real weakness until they are heavily modified on their stats. Like for real he has to realize there is more than one person playing the game and the champions have to feel rewarding for everyone involved, is not a god damn one player game.

: Every Taric main agrees, his default adaptive should be AD
Or you know.... make it possible to chose at the start of the game. Adaptive AP is op on Darius early game for example, since a lot of your early damage comes from your bleed and you can gamble to snowball. People like Adaptive AP on Taric because of gathering storm

Well, just remember that if you remove promos then you also need to get rid of promotion safety net. As in as soon as you promote you can demote on next game
KnifeCat (OCE)
: Riot, brushing off the boards complaints is not a good idea.
I can't even play jg anymore? Like every other lane gets a slight change, yet I have to re learn a whole role every half season. At this point I'm beginning to think that I am playing only because of the "Investment effect"

Saletty (EUW)
: Fire that guy i hate all those champions. Zoe had too much dmg for a long time. Kalista had too much dmg for a long time. Yasuo had too much dmg for a long time. Tresh is tresh. Cant play against Darius if you dont have something like a Morgana in your team to stun him. Graves has too much dmg, Warwick is over 50% since Season 5 or something like that.
Zoe doesn't have too much damage, is pretty standard for a middle mage. Problem is where is allocated and all is due to her utility. She has 2 non damage spells but is not considered a support but a mage so they had to put so much damage on her Q. So a single spells she hits, it deals damage equal to a rotation
Eybdoog (NA)
: Because Yasuo's kit is one of the most fun to play, and currently the standard to which champions are balanced for skill expression. The theory being that Yasuo (and Ryze, others?) when balanced properly should be able to win every 1v1 when played perfectly. If you play less than perfect then you will have a lower than 50% win rate (hence low win rate on champions like Ryze and Yasuo). So that's why Yasuo needs to be balanced immediately because he is how Riot balances every other champion... If Yasuo is losing to champions even when played perfectly (hard to do btw) then that's why he requires an immediate rework/adjustment Whereas Aatrox kit is about as fine as it will ever be right now. His revive passive automatically disqualifies himself from being considered the bar to set a 1v1 champion Wukong is one of the most braindead champions in the game. How can you possibly balance this champion for skill expression? There's no point in putting any effort into balancing this kit Lissandra would be nice to be meta, but her kit is so strong that she's either beyond broken (like Irelia is now) or slightly too weak to be meta You act like every champion is easy to balance. Stop and think next time
Such ideotic ideology. For that to be balanced everyone will have to be the same. Right now Yasuo had at least 50% while other matchups can have way lower at max

You need to up the ante. At LEAST 50 years old :P
I did it on base of the computer technology to be honest. I think the first computers with graphic interface started appearing on the late-mid 80's. And the screenshot technology wouldn't appear until mid 90's (first computers of this technology were very basic) . And online gaming doesn't really boom until late 90's or early 2000's. So.... that would leave a range of 30+.

: I mean from Riot's perspective the only thing stopping him is the lack of waveclear that he has. But they tried to encourage players to try him top, in their latest Q&A
Yeah.... I mean half of the tanks that you play top lane have very weak waveclear. That doesn't stop shen to go top lane. And I really think he would do very well on the jungle with his passive. I really don't see that kit as a support unless the damage is low (like rakkan) but they are selling hima s high damage/assassin kind of support
: Pyke is a good support for the following reason
I am the only one thinking....what is preventing him to go to a solo lane? I mean so far from what I have sin on his preview there is not much that scales well with a teammate. Sure the passive woudl be awkward on a mid lane (since the bushes are not as available) but could work considerably well as long as he is not against a pushing control mage. He could also go top and trade considerably well but most important, I think he is possible a well jungler, kind of a kha zix or an old Ekko.

: At least for Dr. Mundo there is still the "taking a break from Zaun" explanation, since they already reworked Warwick and Urgot... But I agree, it feels like appeal is a major deciding point for the slots right now. It's kinda understandable, but they really should mix in a niche appeal champion in from time to time now.
Honestly Mundo needed the rework more than Warwick or Urgot, but he got a slight change on his E and they called it a day. Playstyle wise urgot was on a decent spot, the reason he was unpopular was due to preconceived stereotypes (everyone gave as a fact that he was bad) but in reality after his second rework he was on a healthy spot.

{{champion:131}} is going to be left on the dust. She already struggle waveclearing without dipping too much into her mana pool
: So what kind of support do people find healthy?
{{champion:111}} nobody complains about him. pretty much same playstyle as leona (but skillshot harder to land) or blitz (but way less damage). Is a mix of those two champions but scale better than leona or blitz while still having similar early. His problems lands that his items are not meta items, he wants to build HP to scale his shield yet current meta doesn't favor high HP items.
