Happened twice already. I wonder if I could go for three now? because you're _obviously_ the only one who has complained about this damage creep problem. The main reason I made this thread is because the title promotes actual discussion instead of just circlejerking.

I don't disagree with you but can you really imagine them making so many massive changes just randomly in the middle of a season? It definitely seems like a change more on the scale of a whole entire new season.

: Why is it AP Kai sa is allowed to be viable while AP Lucian/MF have been in the gutted for years?
because AP lucian and mf are completely different than ap kai'sa. There is nothing healthy or interactive by being constantly e'd by miss fortune from 1000 range. Also I can tell you AP kai'sa won't be viable. on-hit with like guinsoo's and maybe nashor's or something will be viable though.

Azadethe (NA)
: Does anyone feel like the new Swain is Support Viable?
no. Swain needs items to be effective. Picking a support based on an assumption that your adc sucks is almost never a good idea unless you're a smurf in a silver game. To be even slightly effective in lane he will need to push the lane which is almost never good, especially if you're bot lane. He will run out of mana very quickly since his high mana costs are compensated with mans sustain via killing minions. Please just play him mid or if you get autofilled top. His kit is good as a hard-pushing roamer that's good at ganks and dives, not supporting an adc, especially in this meta.
: ADCs have actually had such a time, though it was really long ago, when the game was actually significantly more unbalanced than it is now. Or has been since, really. Because no matter what ADC you picked, it wouldn't matter because someone else did everything you did as an ADC, but did it better. While also being significantly harder to kill.
are you going to elaborate on this or just talk bs?
: Saying this for 2 years: Autofill in diamond decides games.
it makes it even worse when people don't say they're autofilled until AFTER the game starts or AFTER they start doing bad- so you don't even get a chance to have someone trade with them.
: "You are the common denominator in every one of your games"
if you're going to make a post like this at least be honest about what's happening in your games. there is no teemo/draven game and no azir adc game and they did not go 1/8 along with their support

You are completely negating janna's main ability that also has a high mana cost, enabling you and your adc to take a free trade or fight for the next ~10-15 seconds. Mana costs are hardly a problem anyway as long as you aren't going trigger happy on all of your abilities because of the ridiculous mana regen spellthief's gives. Also when you have a negative winrate on your main champion it really makes it hard to determine who and who isn't a counter.

: Year in Review: Janna, Soraka weak against Sona?
sona can damage through Janna's shield with a q+auto. Sona's q is also much lower cooldown than Janna's shield. Sona can poke Soraka herself and mitigate poke from her with her w. Sona is also good at short trades while Soraka is good at extended trades. Short trades are easier to take than extended ones.

Ahri has not been good since release... i don't understand why you assume just because of a champion's winrate that means they are just as good as each other. aatrox's play rate is almost the lowest in the game while ahri's is the highest in mid lane. low play rates usually indicate that most people who play him, main him. 49% winrate on a champion you main is abysmal. ahri has hovered from around 53-55% winrate for like 3 seasons while also having the highest play rate, which is usually an indicator that the champion is actually overpowered. ahri's winrate this patch will almost definitely go back up to ~52-53%, as there were no nerfs in 7.17 to actually make her be performing worse.
Ahris (NA)
: Why is Aatrox getting buff?
aatrox has been in a bad spot almost immediately after he was released ahri has been good since release and has not been bad for a single patch now. riot is experimenting and seeing where aatrox will end up.
: How is it okay that Janna has had 80% of her kit REMOVED and is still receiving nerfs?
janna's kit is unhealthy because of her shield. No matter how much you nerf everything else, her shield will still be ridiculous. If you nerf her shield you will make her useless.
: You must have missed the part where I halve the shield and AD values for her normal E. Empowering her shield brings her to the values she has on live, and forced her to expose herself to enemy retaliation. So it's a straight up nerf + vulnerability.
i think you are missing my point although i don't think i made it very clear. nerfing janna's shield will make her useless as her other abilities don't really matter that much. so they are nerfing janna's shield and having a tradeoff for that by making it so that she is more than just a shield bot.
: It's a flat out movespeed nerf (no more movespeed on her W, no more AP scaling movespeed), and it's a partial nerf to her most powerful ability. The extra CC is a way to tempt Janna to use her Zephyr empowered cast on something other than the shield, thereby overall nerfing her shield through the course of the game.
nobody will EVER use anything besides the empowered shield. I don't think you realize how stupid doubling the shielding and AD is when it's already extremely high. can you imagine someone getting _~100_ AD and roughly 600 shielding from some guy pressing E? the q's knockup is not reliable enough and the R's slow is laughable at best. unless you are a janna main i can't see how you can justify that lol
: I'll be honest I never got into playing janna, I'm more into the nami/karma/lulu triumverate since they can go aggro easier, and janna soraka lanes are just kind of snooze fests. but this would make me want to play her even less if it went live. I mean not only does she have an unreliable and clunky tornado for poking but now she also has the worst shield in the game? I mean morg has a high cooldown shield but at least it gives cc immunity for what it does.
her shield will still be the best in the game without a doubt lol. the shield cooldown scales with rank (18/16/14/12/10) back to it's original cooldown. her Q is also not meant for poke at all, it's meant for disengage. janna has been the best support for a while and is currently pick/ban. you're handicapping yourself by not playing her.

Nick231 (NA)
: How to Counter Yasuo (He's not as op as you think)
{{champion:122}} {{champion:238}} {{champion:420}} {{champion:7}} are not hard counters to yasuo. yasuo actually hard counters both illaoi and leblanc. he can easily deny leblanc's burst and has the potential to dodge her W. yasuo can press E to dodge illaoi's tentacles and has wind wall to block her E. darius and zed are skill matchups. the only good advice you gave was to build {{item:3143}} /{{item:3075}} and to not run through minions to get away from him. that's not to say that he doesn't have weaknesses, because he does. targeted burst and cc, playing around his cooldowns, ganking him early on, armor, not setting up dashes for him by standing inside of the minion wave... the list goes on.
: Can I get a general census on what Yasuo's Weakness is? I feel like they should do a Fiora style rework on his Q (if you miss, higher cooldown versus if you hit an enemy), or if you E through a target (the ability to use the ability on AOE targets is locked out as well) would work too
poking down his shield easily by autoing him, kiting him by not standing in minion waves where he can dash through freely, baiting out his wind wall/playing around it, building a ninja tabi, and also his tornado cooldown. both of the things you mentioned would make him very clunky to play. missing his q already punishes you, so there's no need to put that in. the second suggestion basically removes all of his mobility and will make him very clunky.
: For me its been Illaoi. Not because I've been banning her, mind you. Just every single game I've played she has been banned.
what game are you playing? illaoi is never banned lmao
: I, a silver 3 player just won against a plat 5, hard.
