: Can we please stop buffing zed and other assassins by proxy?
i fucked around with a zed game today. kinda lose lane because against an irelia and i suck at zed. eventually just roam with duskblade and eventually storm blade thing. legitimately one shotting the enemy vayne and she can't do anything. this is fair and balanced.
Meddler (NA)
: Probably something on PBE today. We were looking at making plants briefly untargetable on spawn so that they didn't get immediately one shot by melee Zyra had rooted. Got some feedback from Zyra players that that removed their ability to spawn plants to stop skillshots however. Still looking at other approaches there. In the meantime we're testing increasing her root duration slightly at all levels (1.0-2.0, from 0.75-1.75).
see i really want mid lane zyra to be good but root duration will buff support more than mid

: Tips for Jhin?
pay attention to where minions are and how your q will bounce. if you get the right set up you can hit an unsuspecting enemy with a big q that killed all the previous targets, then with the recentish changes you can root the and either trade further or just have that poke. 4th shot isn't for starting fights as others have mentioned but since it always is a crit (and therefore you always get your movespeed on crit) it can be good poke, just be careful you don't take too much trade damage or get picked. Also get a feel for how much it does. There are many times an enemy is just a bit too low health and i've flash q 4th shot for a quick kill. something sneaky said during the pocket picks video when he talked about jhin about 4th shot. When you go to poke or trade with it, or try to kill a low health target. the common thought is to q then auto because 4th shot has missing health damage and that's how you maximize damage, but the thing is if someone reacts fast you might only get one of the 2 hits and since the 4th shot will do more damage overall it's more important to get that hit first instead of the q, and the q i think might have a slightly higher range anyway so it would be easier to still hit it if someone tries to run.

: Why did riot apologize about making Kai'sa? "overly sexualized"
well. first of all, sex sells. and second of all we have a girl who grows up in a place without clothing, gets a void creature to act as a body suit and molds itself to fit her body, like a skin tight suit, in order to be as efficient and effective as possible. i mean like ok maybe people are happy about her proportions but like it doesn't seem that unrealistic that if that's what her genes are then that's what she's gonna look like.
: Can we go back to honoring people in the post-game lobby?
yeah that would be nice. i mostly dislike the time limit on honors. sometimes i play with someone i really enjoyed or carried and was cool and i'm like, i want to honor this person, but then i say get a ping in discord and i go to check it while post game lobby loads and i don't get back to the client in time.
Dezyrable (EUW)
: Around 85% of Zyra players play her support and this has been the case since S3, a lot of champions have shifted role from their release (Gragas, Nidalee, Kha'Zix, Quinn, Graves, Corki etc.), I'll be happy for you if Riot manages to change Zyra in a way that solves her issues midlane and doesn't affect her support role but expecting them to make Zyra a midlane-only champion because a minority of Zyra players complain about he current state doesn't make a lot of sense. Also please don't come back at me saying that Zyra was supposed to be a midlaner and so on, people have been playing her support for years and that's her role even in pro play.
part of the reason people play her support is because she doesn't function well in the mid lane anymore. if teemo for example suddenly got nerfed out of top lane and became a better mid laner i would play him mid not because i enjoy playing him mid over top, because in reality i don't care that much either way, but because i like the champion and want to play him and he functions better as a mid laner in that example. i'd even play him jungle or support or adc if that's how it went. That doesn't mean that he shouldn't ever be viable in top again just because no one would be playing him top anymore.

: It's not the same passive?
it's the old morello passive. I think it's be nice to have a legend stat that works with ap's but i don't think percision secondary is necessarily bad because you can take presence and one of the bottom ones.
: Firewall
i get a popup every time i have a new program/game that wants to connect to the internet. it's just like hey do you want to allow this on public networks or not basically. Tbh i just ignore the popup but it is annoying that it's happening every patch. I suspect they changed some code here and there with the voice chat and open parties and stuff and that's why.

except from what i've heard it's still being calculated as bonus in game and the either it's bugged or the patch notes are wrong.

: Riot, I made you a honey turkey sandwich.
Sparkle (NA)
: I hear ya. We're going to be doing a pass on all the rune stats (sorry, this has to be Soon TM one b/c I don't have an exact date) to go through and see what's working and what's not. So adding, removing, changing the in game stats and end of game stats. Ravenous has by far been the most requested for stat expansion.
I would really appreciate that greatly. i like seeing stats.
: We had done the one nerf to DH on Aram back in...December I believe, and recall that it changed it reasonably. Does it still feel completely over bearing to you guys? See below for a graph that shows some of the relative performance of keystones from back in mid January when I pulled the data as followup, not entirely sure what it looks like now, but suspect it's similar. The red bars indicate number of plays with the keystone, and the winrate% is well...winrate. Tons of nuance here though since it's not broken out by champs that might abuse it more (Ezreal, J4, Ekko as you mention).
i took it on fiora in an aram game and managed to do over 10k damage from the rune alone. i'm not sure if it's *really super busted* but it could maybe be slightly out of line.
: QSS is a good counter, yes. It also cost a lot of gold, the skarner tax.
it's almost a win in and of itself to set the enemy team back by 1300 gold per person, especially in the early game when they desperately need powerspikes.
Vaermina (NA)
: The current ult may not makes sense, but neither does Quinn turning into Valor and having Quinn magically pop of nowhere when the ult ends doesn't make much sense either.
it never was magic to me. I always just looked at it as a tag out. she tagged out for valor, valor now goes around does stuff, when she tags back in she shoots down around them.
: Scaling Crowd Control
i don't think this is a buy and large solution to every cc in the game. But it does make sense in more cases than it's currently used.

: Why Does Getting More Essence of Blue or Red Kayn Lock Me Out of A Powerspike For 4 Minutes?
i don't think you should be able to fill the blue bar and turn red, but i do however think the lockout should be half the time it is, or *if* you can fill the other bar *before* the lockout would expire then you can just go to the other form. That's kind of how i originally expected it to be.
: I use the squiggly key (tilde key). It's out of the way while simultaneously being very easily accessible , and to top it off it's almost never used, so there's no accidental pushing while typing, etc. Imo, I don't believe there's a better PTT button on the entire keyboard. I wouldn't change other keys because generally speaking, I don't have to. It's a key that's really never used.
yeah, i too put it there. Literally nothing ever uses that key so it's a pretty safe bet that it won't interfere with anything.
: Removing Celestial Body is such a fucking unbelievably stupid decision IT HURTS
I really like celestial body, granted i don't use it on many champions but i'm not playing tanky champions that would benefit from the health more than the early damage hurts but it's a nice rune and it has it's uses.
Rioter Comments
: Bots are ruining ARAM
I keep seeing posts about bots in arams. But like i've played a few hundred at least since their inception, sometimes playing several a day if i felt like it, and i've never once seen a bot in aram. Is there something i'm missing?
Terozu (NA)
: Trash talking, actually is fine.
not gonna lie i do actually type "Thanks!" or something like that when someone grabs or throws me into the guy i was trying to kill and i just kill him. The only thing i really do that is potentially reportable/punishable is if i press a single button and kill someone, like syndra ult or veigar ult, especially when i miss half my shit on top of that, and then i just type "outplayed"
: You ever have that feeling when it's 20 minutes into a game
no, usually i've been 3 or 4 manned by their bot lane/jungle or the jungler has come top and dropped rift herald turning the lane i'm winning into 2 free towers i can't stop from falling. Even if none of this shit happens my bot lane will feed 10 kills in 10 minutes and anything i do in lane now doesn't matter. sometimes i wish i could live on an island lane again and not have to worry about my team hemorrhaging kills and map pressure while i slowly gain a lead and win the lane i'm supposed to win, or lose slowly and still be relevant.

Bârd (NA)
: Zoe counters
fizz isn't untargetable long enough to negate the sleep. if he gets hit by the bubble he will get hit by the q. vlad might be long enough, the other two listed definitely aren't. You have to dodge the bubble if you want to dodge the damage, it's that simple. The morgana interaction pisses me off. I wouldn't mind if I could still get hit for the true damage if i shielded after the bubble, fizz ult for example will still deal damage if i shield after it hits someone, but it won't knock the target up if i do that, so why do i go to sleep from zoe. These spells basically act the same way, but are treated completely differently.

Fearless (NA)
: It was very satisfying, but it has a ton of overlap with other defensive options, most clearly locket. We're not saying we won't look to offer some defensive options in the future, but if and when we do, we'll be giving power that has a bit more uniqueness or interaction to it. FOTM right now is one of the larger contributions to shield stacking problems, and has some of the least interesting build impacts and gameplay.
it's more interesting and skill based gameplay than locket, and in basically every situation has a smaller shield than locket, is bought less than locket, since it's melee focused, not melee specific, but ranged supports like karma and nami don't get relic shield. Ok it has a 30 second lower cd, but locket is far worse for the shield stacking problems than face.
ItsLowbo (NA)
: Yes, we'll be testing it out as part of the upcoming AP item pass. Not guaranteed it will be a part of that, but if not we will try to bring it back somewhere else. We'll also be looking for a way to bring back Talisman/Reverie. We will be monitoring tank supports to see if they need a way to defend an indivudual ally in addition to Knight's Vow.
shurelya's reverie is a name i haven't heard in a long time.

I swear to fucking god talisman better be coming back in a support item that i can buy and feel good about buying early. That active is my favorite of all the support actives we have and it can be a very powerful tool at times.
Rioter Comments
: and despite no proof of this, you're complaining and people are upvoting. Also, why does anyone care about the one game a guy does a troll build?
go look at probuilds for leblanc, saintvicious was doing this, shiphtur has a game with it. admittedly they got buried some but the games are there. Voyboy was playing it on stream for a bit, idk if he still is because i don't watch streams much but it should still be in the vods, whole streams were titled "ad leblanc top"
: So, in 10 days season 8 will start, let's judge the keystones
dark harvest seems pretty toned down to me compared to feral flare/devourer. I actually think that if dark harvest had better support for dps, like an attack speed bonus for going precision secondary, or something like that, it would scale faster in bot lane and be desirable on certain adc picks.

: So Fizz is a yordle?
it's ok because that also means he's vastayan apparently. seriously is like everything that isn't human/void/ascended just referred to as a vastayan? It feels like a huge catch all category, makes me think that there is a sort of racial inequality in their world in that humans are superior race and everything else is just vastayan. I don't mind this, it almost makes sense, but for the sake of lore there should be at least some kind of scientific fact to what the characters are somewhere at least.

: AP Shaco: A Year in Review
i do think adaptive ability damage for 2 shiv fits shaco very thematically as well. Ideally this is something that happens in other cases, but on shaco it just makes sense. He's an evil jester, he should be able to fuck with you, change his damage type to suit the situation.
