Tf you mean? Twitch top is stupid already when we have more than enough damage and not enough frontline. I was a frontline but Vi doesn't get particularly tanky till later. The team needed it.

: What keeps you playing League?
See if balance is still shit...If yes, I likely wont play the next day.
: Is it just me or are people slowly not playing league anymore?
No kidding, since the balance is fucking everywhere and Riot listens to nothing but $$$.

Jinx can be destructive once she gets going. Varus has a fair bit of utility and poke. Twitch is sneaky. Jhin..is Jhin, Idk about him.

They may have probably been boosted and are actually bad enough to lost constantly enough to drop their MMR to those low levels.

It is, lol. I know that the garbage balance plays a big role too, but for the most part, the MMR disparity from back when everyone was boosting eachother and their friends is still a thing since that was a whole year of silvers being plat and etc.

: As one of if not the most vocally user of boards in support for Elo and MMR systems. I strongly object to Riots implementation of Duo queing. It generates mismatches left and right because baising it off Tiers and not MM's Class intervals is silly. Yea it wont break the ladder but fk man it can push MM to throw some curveball shitty matches at players. Easy solution is Duoing is restricted to MMR values and it wont let a class interval gap group. Better solutions removal of duoing completely but I think the features so dam popular that it would be a net negative for the game and Riot that it could impact player participation to the point MM has to widen its range. A Hard Reset is never preferable. Id love Riot to do it for a preseason just to show the playerbase how much chaos that would make so they wont ask for it anymore.

Id love Riot to do it for a preseason just to show the playerbase how much chaos that would make so they wont ask for it anymore. I wouldn't call it chaos. It's already chaos with Silvers being paired with Platinums (I was in a ranked game at ~gold elo and they were gifted a Plat/Diamond player while we had true silvers and golds...which is obscene because even if I could beat the Plat or Diamond, that doesn't mean my team can), which I would say is worse than if Plats were in their proper rank and it was Plat vs Plat. Hell, MM should already be proper division vs proper division. Except for the upper tiers like Master/GM/Challenger. Maybe also excluding Diamond+. If people truly are Platinum+, they'll have no trouble getting back to their original ELO. I'd say to disallow new/smurf accounts from hitting Plat 3+ if they win all 10 pre-ranking games. Plat 4, maybe.
: People in platinum
Let me know when you find out. That ELO was a nightmare two seasons ago when I cared to hit Plat, and I'm sure it hasn't changed.
: Darius needs a rework
Gnar can still get rekt until he gets FM if the Darius is more competent. Tbh, he's my toplane main and I still don't really know how to deal with a good one properly because he's designed to be a lane bully/win a lot of lanes for the most part. The only real idea is to outrun him and/or kite, or just kill him first/dodge his Qs as Riven or something.
Rioter Comments

Must be trolling...He literally nullifies all projectiles by Level 2-3 (he'll very unlikely skill it at Level 1). Good luck hitting him if he's in a minion wave with no point/click abilities, assuming the Yasuo is somewhat competent.
: She's really not. Her lack of non ult mobility and need to conserve mana in lane makes her extremely counterpick reliant. Mid lane mages need to auto attack to farm, and Ahri is one of the easiest to zone. I'm not saying she's a hard champion. She's one of the easiest to counter. {{champion:105}} {{champion:238}} {{champion:101}} {{champion:157}} {{champion:55}} {{champion:7}}{{champion:91}} all generally counter her.
This is like the worst pick in this thread, lol. Are you assuming the laning phase goes from lv2 straight to lv6 or something, or the Ahri player is new?
: Can we nerf Pyke already?
Keep his damage, make his ult actually able to be dodged instead of it locking on to you, and get rid of his stupid self-heal.
: Hash does bring up a good point.
I like top-lane but it's hard to carry unless you're someone like Camille or Fiora. Or a jacked-up Darius even...but that's if you get really ahead and they don't get equally as fed with a decent counter. It's a select 10 champions for the most part, and everyone else seems to be sub-optimal iirc.

: Honestly they should just make it weaker for range champs instead of preventing them from buying it. That's how Frozen Mallet works. They should either reduce the slow from 30% to like 15-20%, or reduce the duration of the ice zone from 2 seconds to 1 second. Or they could reduce the base size of the slow zone and make it scale better with armor. Best way to fix EZ though is to prevent double tear. Make tear like boots, where you can only have one regardless of upgrade, or make it like Athene's where having one passive turns off the other one.

Make tear like boots, where you can only have one regardless of upgrade, or make it like Athene's where having one passive turns off the other one. He's always been safe though, nothing's changed other than his W...And his W changed in the way to give him the needed damage that the Triforce build usually offers. So now he can build safer and the damage he needed is in his W. And now his W is getting even stronger (but at least his Q gets nerfed conversely). So, nerf that build or nerf his double tear nonsense. Hell, make the mana gain by the two items unique as another way. Hell, Klepto makes sure he always has enough money assuming he can spam Q enough to get gold drops so even Klepto taking a shot would nerf him decently.
: All hooks in league have some what big hitboxes if you complain about pyke you have to complain about every hook in league since pyke is not a outlier for this especially since he is not the worst case of this. Also it sounds like you have no clue what to do vs pyke and your just mad about it.

His mana costs are also non-existent. He can cast so many abilities and still have more than 60% of his mana.

: I love it. Add a Recurve Bow upgrade path for Wit's and Madred's while we're at it. Then remove Phantom Hit from Rageblade. Trying to make OnHit builds compete directly with AD/Crit has *always* been a horrible idea. They're either useless or busted. OnHit items should be items for folks who want a side of durability with their sustained damage.

: Honestly, I’m starting to think Hashinshin is right about Riot’s top lane balancing philosophy
Part of it is items like Iceborn and Frozen Mallet being able to be utilized (and abused) by ranged champions.

Vayne just needs Rageblade to be nerfed in the way of removing that stupid Rage passive on it. It'll hit her hard enough, while also killing other abuse cases.
Seenan (NA)
: ..Somehow got a Bronze 1 and Gold 4 as a duo on my team in Ranked Solo? How is this even possible?
Late response, but I think I may have figured it out (but it doesn't really make sense the way it currently works); it's because one of the Bronze's other roles were Silver...But it shouldn't allow the person to queue with the Gold on her Bronze role. Should grey out the option to start matchmaking until she swaps into her actual Silver role that would normally be able to queue into Ranked as a duo. :/

: I think it can against very specific champions. It's net neutral against continuous DoTs like {{champion:17}}, better against spellflingers like {{champion:69}}, and strictly worse against any physical poke/DoT as well as single spell-cycle burst mages like {{champion:1}} {{champion:142}} {{champion:518}}. {{item:3065}} exists to build against burst mages, but tanks usually end up needing to build both anyway, alongside 3 armor items, splitting their resistances. Upgrading to {{item:3194}} with a {{item:3065}} already owned is even worse btw. You go from +260% regen to +130.

Rioter Comments
: So who builds Archangels as a first item these days?
As a first weapon, no. It's basically only for champions like Ryze and Ezreal...Maybe Karthus. Ezreal wouldn't even make it if it couldn't stack with Muramana. Most of the mana costs aren't very applicable enough to warrant something like Archangel's.
