: Sorry Riot, but Pool Party Miss Fortune's Splash is very "meh"
She has pizza feet. The focus is also pulled towards Blitz more than MF. Removing the steam or even lighting the steam up would help with the focus. Two simple fixes that will make the skin look a lot better.
: It's legitimately difficult to not overbuild CDR now
CDR is simply too cheap. Everyone would build a ton of MS items as well if their were more available. Utility items that are cheap will always be go to especially when they very heavily mess with DPS/Rotation Speed.
: You Know What Play Makes No Sense To Me?
{{champion:161}} Flesh units tend to panic when their protection is taken from them. A panicked flesh unit acts unpredictably.
: They already ask at the beginning how familiar with the game, but let's be honest, how many people click the right one? I clicked the middle option since I'm not new, but I'm not ranked.
It really is bad. I tested this by starting a new character and selecting the "No experience" option. Was just fucking around in bot games and I had 3 intent flamers in nearly every lobby.

: Champion Update: Ryze the Rune Mage
What is with most of your new reworks/champions having utility ults over damage ults? I like the change but I was wondering why the change occurred.
: > [{quoted}](name=Arthimetes,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=dgIv0nJK,comment-id=0005,timestamp=2016-06-28T06:50:09.782+0000) > Assassins are the BIGGEST offenders of base damages because almost every assassin I see now can build 100% tank (MAYBE one damage item) and still one-shot anyone under 2k hp. This is an outright lie. There are only a handful of assassins that can actually build tank and one shot. Pretty much only Fizz and Ekko. You're really not gonna get away with building tank on Talon, Zed, Kha'zix, or several other assassins. > DESTROY tank assassin builds. This I agree with. In my opinion, it's the fact that tanks get get huge amounts of damage without sacrificing tankiness that makes going tank worthwhile. Free damage on tank items is a fucking stupid idea, ahem, deadman's, titanic hydra, and several other tank items, I'm talking about you. Honestly assassins and mages should have high scalings low bases, and ADCs should be put back to having 10 less average AD than the average melee champion. CC on any champion that isn't giving up damage should be heavily reduced. You can't have you cake and eat it too: you should be able to have tons of damage and tons of cc too. But hey I'm going to get downvoted because I didn't outright agree with a post saying assassins are the issue.
> In my opinion, it's the fact that tanks get get huge amounts of damage without sacrificing tankiness that makes going tank worthwhile. The issue is this plus something else. With the tank rework they messed with a lot of items. While most tanks didn't get damage buffs a lot of super strong items got CDR. With CDR they can abuse their base damage. If Riot wants tanks to have 30-40% CDR than they have to gut their base damage on abilities. The CDR power creep is honestly getting really bad. It's dirt cheap on nearly every class, and atm it looks like Riot has no idea how to balance it outside of "everyone gets 40% cdr and we balance from there"
: Zeds win rate is the 3rd lowest for midlane yet hes still at an 85% banrate.

That's correct, because there's less players avaiable to choose from, thus making the matches more "unfair". It also happens to me sometimes and I'm low MMR.
Yeah it gets worse as you approach the two extremes.

I edited my other post. Take a look at that. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. Dynamic Queue is how you queue up. Matchmaking is how the teams are arranged. Like I said, the problem isn't DQ; it's MM.
Either way would work. My way just accepts current winrates and balances MMR/MM around that while Riot is likely trying to find the perfect MMR gain a team needs. The issue with their way is the higher you go up the longer the queues the less likely it'll try to match based on that MMR.
Febos (EUW)
: >Second it needs to be communicated that players who match together are expected to win more That's the thing, they aren't. Matchmaking will try to get you a game where you have 50% chance of winning (give or take), regardless if you are premade or not. The problem isn't DQ; the problem is the matchmaking system. ##EDIT What should happen is something like this: - You are in a premade group that consists of: Gold 2, Gold 5, Silver 1 and Silver 5. The system takes the average and tries to found you a match, but there's a catch. - Your group average skill is Silver 1..Gold 5. - The system will not find you a match where the average skill is Silver 1..Gold 5. Instead, because you are in a group, it'll try to match you against people HIGHER than your group skill (for the opposing team that is). - The average skill of the enemy team, assuming they are all solo, should be around Gold 3..Gold 1. The problem is in the 3rd step. That isn't happening as it should.
Dynamic Queue and the matchmaking system are one and the same at this point.

They pretty much reverted Vel'koz {{sticker:zombie-nunu-hearts}}

{{champion:161}} is his number one counter.
: Wait so his 3 second wall makes it so melees can never attack him? That a joke?
His wall, highly maneuverable soldiers, and hyper mobility E makes it nearly impossible to get onto him as a melee.

: So why does it win games about as often as all the other drakes? If it was so much worse then shouldn't their winrates differ?
Dragons shouldn't be changing win rates like crazy unless one is severly overpowered. The only time you'll generally be taking Dragon is if you have a lead or you're trading it for something. Where have you found the WRs around the dragons?

Lost R (NA)
: Proof that it's possible to get an S rank as a support
The issue is probably coming from Riot counting CS for supports. Generally the only time you'll collect CS on support is when your team is straight up garbage.

: State of the Season: Mid-Season followup
I actually think you guys accomplished at destroying the #1 'toxic' thing about Vel'koz and his kit. The biggest issue I've had as a Vel'koz main is pre rework how he was essentially a super mid game long range assassin. You had two things you brought 1) Wave Clear 2) Ultimate that would almost always 100-0 their backline. Now your plan for Vel'koz was to give him an extremely strong ultimate in specific situations. That being in order to 100-0 that backline you need to proc your passive, but as a reward you'll also be able to 100-0 the frontline (well more like 100-15 for most of the game) as well. The irritating part about this was 1) It's not always easy to land your combo against a good player 2) It's extremely hard to land your combo against the enemy backline 3) If you screwed up your ult felt like complete garbage. By allowing his ult to proc every .7s you've solved the 3 issues, but then have failed at giving him an extremely strong _situational_ ult. Instead you've hardened his foundation of late game artillery mage that if positioned correctly can 100-0 anyone on your team. While he may be doing this too easy atm when behind (might need to look at base values even more) this heavy focus on positioning to do damage, and high damage artillery placement champion design is what makes me play him.

I think it's situational, and highly dependent on enemy team comp but it's possible to work.

Hell in their podcast they said they figured this out months ago, but couldn't figure out how to tell the community. ^This last part. I am glad they finally said something though. GBay99 basically reflected my actual reaction to the podcast's points in real-time.
I'm glad they finally came out and said "Yes we fucked up." This thread is just me wanting to make sure they learn from it since they've made this mistake quite a few times :/
: People claim "board and reddit are only minorities!" and I can see them soon say "youtube and twitch are only minorities!" and it will revolve into "pro players and high elo players' opinion aren't valid".
They need to understand the casual community isn't watching the LCS. Want to hurt them stop watching their shit.
: They did plan on bringing it back but over the course of time that possibility became less feasible. I hope you never have a hard job that requires adaptation to the situation and change like the U.S Military. If you where told the enemy was going to attack from the south but they attacked from north would you refuse to return fire and site the grounds of your refusal being the radio operators bad information ? I bet you would. Things change bro get used to it.
You've missed the entire point. This is more like your CO knowing the enemy force is about to flank your squad, but they remain quiet because they don't know how to phrase that they fucked up. I like how you idiots come in here and don't read a single word. You just look at the title and say "Oh shit I better just go down here and type a response". If you don't plan on reading my actual discussion you can leave this thread. You don't go into a conversation and say "Fuck you bro, I heard this one thing you said and I'm going to take it out of context". This thread has nothing to do with me not liking DQ. It has to do with Riot not telling us about their decision for months. They lied to us when we knew the truth from the beginning. Hell in their podcast they said they figured this out months ago, but couldn't figure out how to tell the community.
: I have a lot of friends. I dont want to rank with those friends though.
I can't rank play with my friends outside of like 2 or 3 who are friends in that they're on my friends list :/ due to DQ restrictions.

: They kinda did. They said that Dynamic queue is priority and that there is very small chance for solo queue.
They've been going down a step every time like they always do. From "It's in the works" to "Not Priority" to "Dead". Sucks because we never know what Riot actually has planned.

Mhihnj (EUW)
: anyone who has mastered and mains Yasuo will never really lose to anyone 1v1
Good thing this game isn't a 1v1.
: Do Heals crit, how, why, how much
Lifesteal works with crits. Crits are also dropped with armor. Lifesteal works off of total damage done to the target after armor is calculated. This means if you have 300 AD, 100% lifesteal, and 100% crit and hit a 100 armor target you'll deal 300 damage (100 armor=50% Damage Reduction) and will heal for 300 HP.
: Tali Ult
Give Riot some time. They'll find ways to work around things like this eventually.
Voluug13 (NA)
: They consider Ekko and Yasuo well designed. Their opinion is shit when it comes to assassins, tbfh.
Yasuo is probably one of the better designed assassins. He doesn't have insane wave clear. He has clear moments of power and weakness. He is evenly matched in the early game, but will turn into a madman mid/late if you get him fed. His only reliable way to ult is by throwing out an easily dodgeable skillshot or through team synergy. While his crit passive may be annoying his actual kit is very well designed.
Deneviel (EUW)
: Sorry but .... Does Zed even have a comfortable zone ? O_o Near him: u are dead Far from him: u are poked Got no mana and a very safe escape ..... i see no clear weakness in his kit
If he messed up his W-Q combo he's pretty bad. Landing that though means you're forced out of lane. Sitting at mid/long range is the best strat while his W is up. When it's off CD though punishing him by zoning him from the wave and hard pushing is a good idea.
: do you even know what a high banrate means?

Taliyah will likely be pick/ban since she has very similar strengths/weaknesses. He isn't mobile mage and he isn't burst damage and he has counterplay and he has 48-49% win rate and he has only 10% play rate and he has 44% win rate with 1-5 games.
He has decent burst and mobility. He just brings a lot of utility and control which is good for team play.
: That statistic is true for one event, and the only reason pros pick him is bc he's sortve safe and has decent laning.
He's a great control mage who deals a ton of DPS. Taliyah will likely be pick/ban since she has very similar strengths/weaknesses.
: RIP Azir
They should have just increased the CD on his Q. Gives him too much early game lane presence with how fast it can be spammed.
Meddler (NA)
: Yeah, there'll need to be some form of cap or diminishing returns in there if this tests well, not looking to give him a root with enough AP.
Slows are already capped. It shouldn't be an issue.
: I think some phrases should be instant punishment for saying it once, even saying it a single time in a game should at least deserve a chat restriction, things like - kys, I hope you die of cancer, any autism insult, and hard racial slurs. Things like that have no reason whatsoever being said in this game, and I can't tell you how many times I've reported people saying those things and them getting off scott free, usually friend requesting me and going on for days about how riot cant touch them ( I keep them friended to see if anything actually happens and usually delete after a few days)
: @Riot - We should have 0 tolerance against players encouring others to commit suicide
: Can we get just one massive redo of the lore instead of individual lore changes one by one?
That's too much info at once. Dropping 100+ bios a day is insane, and only the most dedicated fans would look at them all. Dropping them 1 or 2 at a time means that they're more accessible. This will make future lore events easier for most people to get into as they'll understand the basics behind each champion.
Archenz (NA)
: I feel like Riot starts of stories really well and then doesnt follow up
They need a strong foundation in order to make a story. Think of it like this the spine of a book holds the book together. It keeps the pages in order, is sturdy enough to make sure that everything stays in place, and is flexible enough to allow the pages to flow smoothly. The backstories are needed in order for the real story to shine in a similar way. It keeps the characters moving with cause, is strong enough to give them motives for their adventures, and is also malleable enough to allow character growth. I'm sure once Riot has finished the spine they can work on the pages.
: The reason higher elo players tell you every game is winnable is to get you playing every losing game as if you can win. That's how you should be playing, even if there's no possible way you can win. You can't outright tell someone with a defeatist attitude this or else they will just ignore you, so you have to sugar coat it until they reach a point where they can fully understand what you're trying to say.
If you deserve gold+ and you're in bronze nearly every game is winnable outside of the insane circumstances.

: Sorry this was made a year ago my comment is late. The point is that blue ezreal does no dmg compared to other adcs late game.
