We are actually allowing an exception here because it relates to Riot and how they react to the policies; this is a rare exception so calling it a push away when we are actually permitting discussing Riot's reaction is a bit odd.

not being allowed to talk about how the holdings-company that subsidizes Riot's services is state-run by the chinese government, and how the hypervigilant application of their own laws explicitly affects the League of Legends community, is "pretty odd" as well. especially when you consider that its the root issue of the discussion at-large. thanks for nothing lol.

: Riot is becoming EA
: Why does Riot continue to invest on E-Sports/ Pro play when it's not even close to be profitable ?
Riot/Tencent belongs to a corporate-culture where their primary means of doing business is perpetual self-advertisement, by way of E-Sports and constant-exposure in the gaming business (advertisements, cross-promotions & sponsorships), instead of the originating product itself. At this point, the game is just a singular revenue-stream and bit of intellectual-property. Having a stable concurrent-playerbase isn't enough when your model-of-business is based around constant growth, for constant revenue-growth. And this model of business most always disenfranchises the people who enjoyed said originating product; the folks who helped those companies get to where they are today. More than anything in the world, I hate retail-investors, Big Business executives, and other corporate snakes. Worse than politicians, or warhawks.....they are the number-one detriment to society at large. Even something as innocuous as video-games ends up being tainted when these folks get their hands on them. Sorry for the rant, but these issues Riot faces are all interconnected & it's a perpetual and absolute pain-in-the-ass for people who actually enjoy LoL.

he's an awesome champ when the meta isn't out of his favour. he has a lot of really imbalanced meta picks to content with these days, though!! this patch & the last have been particularly lame. I think he could use a bit of love in the HP-per-level and/or MR@lv1 department, because he does have pretty nasty 1v1 and even 1v2 potential, but gets zoned out pretty easily compared to a lot of other fighters in his weight-class

'development' is a strong word for what they're doiing, which is more akin to fulfilling a top-down order from tencent to steal another game's concurrent playerbase, by rehashing it with premade assets under their ownership. in most everywhere outside of China, we call it theft.
: Hey Junglers, let me explain to you why top laners are always so toxic (explaining; not excusing it)
my problem with a lot of jg-players is that they don't gank ANY lane at all for the first fifteen-or-so minutes, often on champions whose performance hinges on snowballing & lack the degree of scaling or teamfight-capability that most all laners do, like jg-assasin picks or Lee Sin or some shit. then they have the gall to blame their teammates for losing their lanes. sheesh! you guys don't have to gank top necessarily, but you've got to ask yourselves if not interacting with anybody for such a time is truly the right course-of-action in a 5v5 match.

: Exhaust is dead
big disagree, sir--exhaust is my favourite summoner spell, and I get good mileage out of it. as a support....it's good for mitigating the consequences of an enemy support gapclosimg and CCing your ADC, by exhausting theirs, for example. can also be useful as a throwdown when their jg arrives. as a midlaner, I often run it against melee ADs while playing the likes of Azir or Cassiopeia if I'm confident I don't need barrier, to whittle down one of their damage-rotations or give me some needed sticking power. as a toplaner, I find it can make all the difference in a 1v1 environment vs ADs with either a huge emphasis on AA's/proper orbwalking or ones with strong executes like Darius or garen--these two in particular, among others, getting double-shafted by the movespeed debuff. GW isn't hard to itemize, and ignite feels like one of those things that players will always prop up because Wohoo More Damage, but to each their own.
: Tank Junglers.....A Thing of the Past?
More like Tank Toplaners--aside from some lowkey patrician picks like J4/Voli/grasp-wu, a growing majoriry of them feel like McDonalds-tier trash. can't pick them blind or some goof is apt to counterpick you; can't overextend unless your jg helps, which means they can't help botlane, which is a pivotal component of this meta; probably can't CS reliably under turret either!! Playing most tanks in the toplane is the gameplay-equivalent of swinging your arms in a windmill-fashion as fast as you can, while firing off two magnum pistols, and waiting to either get lucky and hit something or for your foot to get shot off.....it's a very frustrating and anxiety -inducing way to play top, and there are most always a better means to approach the situation, via a more competent toplane pick
: Current most popular top picks are so dull or frustrating to play against
f**k popular, I've been playing stuff like {{champion:106}} {{champion:48}} {{champion:62}} {{champion:2}} {{champion:59}} and absolutely wiping the floor with these meta picks. Popular and Good aren't mutually-inclusive.
: Any way to make azir soldiers attack move?
there are two types of pet objects in this game; cosmetic pets (which serve merely as a visual, and whose damage is based on another overarching mechanic) and game-impacting pets (which tabulate their own damage and behave essentially as their own unit, but with specific quirks). Azir's soldiers are actually the former, and it's better to think of those sand soldiers as an extension of his auto-attack, even if the scaling is different and they don't proc onhit effects. You need to learn how to orbwalk with him, WITH the soldier range gimmick, to play him well.....but it is well worth it.....he is not as bad as some people say. The solution is often to stand closer, which sounds kind of counterintuitive, but as you play more Azir games you'll come to understand that he's actually well-adapted to get up in people's faces.
: I found out how to deal with Zed
I prefer 1 extra DRing, as well as a ruby crystal, on first b instead of 2 DRings. rc gives 70 more HP than the former :^) but you hit the nail on the head OP. many people don't buy items to the task at hand--only purchasing the same items in the same order every time--and in the case of zed, switching things up and having enough HP to retaliate while he tries to rotate his shit on u can make all the difference.
: So when are tanks that can't 1 shot people going to be relevant again?
voli is still pretty good--I usually play him top, and he can not only trade really well, but can really mess with people's micro & put them in a really bad situation via proper use of his dank flip + roar I take grasp to give me lane sustain and even nastier trades, the 2 healing runes under the domination tree to make trading even more brainless, and actually opt for TForce as second-item most of the time simply because voli has wicked synergy with it--gives you both the stats you need as well as QoL stuff across the board, including a nice big chunk of CDR I'd say that a lot of tanks are really underrated actually, and it's often a matter of picking the right one that compliments your jg (as a toplaner at least) and your teamfighting at-large. don't give up OP!! some tanks are some mcdonalds-tier garbage tho xD

am I a Stinking Peasant for liking {{item:3115}} {{champion:84}} ???? seems a lot better than LB, especially if u play her top, where trades can drag on & get messy xD
: Ok so thanks guys. From what I'm hearing, as long as I don't get counterpicked(Teemo/Quinn) I'm gonna be able to harass really easily but I'm basically gonna be camped top.
if the enemy team comp looks like it has poor synergy & their jg+top doesn't look like something that could easily secure kills against you, then something like Draven top becomes a lot more appealing but if they've got divers or high-mobility champs with CC & big dmg rotations, then it would be risky sometimes it's a good thing to get camped top--if they can't lock any kills on ya, it opens up a lot of opportunities for your jg.

: With energy users, using an ability limits the abilities they can cast next. Their energy regenerates quickly, but their abilities cost a huge percentage of their resource compared to a mana user. A mana user can use all of their abilities in tandem and need to go through several rotations before their resource will limit what they will cast, but an energy can't go through their full rotation on-cooldown. If they spam even one of their abilities for poke, they won't have enough energy to all-in. They need nearly a full bar before they can commit. Yasuo landing a Q at melee range isn't poke, it's a trade. Poke is where neither champion can commit on the other, and you're whittling down each other's health. If Yasuo is hitting you with his Q and it isn't a tornado, he's basically in melee range of you, and you can fight back. The fact that you aren't doesn't make it poke, it's him winning the trade because you don't have a cooldown available to contest him. Name one melee champion that doesn't have an ability that could hit another champion at that range or let them close a gap that small. Champions that are resourceless, like Riven and Yasuo, are gated heavily by cooldowns. Their cooldowns are generally longer than other champions, making them heavily dependent on CDR items and/or a level lead to be effective. They suffer hard if you can stay ahead of them. Their cooldowns are valuable resources in themselves, so if you can bait one early, like Yasuo's Windwall or Riven's shield, you can easily win trades in that extended window.
funny how the boards will try to dessemimate posts like these, as good of an argument as it poses, because it doesn't mention Champs like Riven or Yas in a certain light--or just straight-up downvote it. lame!
: How to play Sivir properly?
Think of her as a sort of Draven. She's very strong early, boasting one of the strongest basic skills in the game (especially at lv1), an AA reset and a spell shield. A great early-pressure ADC. She has a reputation for being farmy, but the reason you farm so heavily is to maintain an advantage you start with rather than to scale, much how Draven is dependent on kil-participation to maintain his sbowball. She is very good against the likes of Ashe, or other ADCs with a strong one-or-two item spike like MF or Varus, because she has the means to come out ahead in most all occassions--barring jg and support's influence on the lane. Conversely, champions that boast a higher AA range than her--translating better into late-game--or simply being outscaled via damage make her a risky pick if you can't win early. So ADCs like Kog/Tris/Cait/Vayne are examples of who to be wary of.

: when will i reach gold?
: trynda
I disagree with the 0-counterplay statement lol......but he's an old ass champion who exists largely as a counterpick in an era where heinous counterpicks of his variety have been largely phased-out and, when the lane matchup is in his favour or when your team comp is less-than-desirable, he is too much to deal with. I don't mind playing against tryn, but agree 100% that he needs a rework, and I am fearful for that day because his kit will probably be loaded with some pretty spooky stuff :'(
: Riots official stance that I've seen is that China calls him Happy Windman so he's balanced and fair to play as/with/against
happy windman is a much better name, I stand with China on this one
: Riot just made Zyra jungle viable.

: Top lane is for masochists.
Matchmaking inconsistencies make this problem 100x worse. Usually toplaners will be able to stall out their lane if things go south even with a huge differential in skill, but because of really janky matchmaking as of late, the entire dynamic that junglers provide to top seem more overbearing than ever. Champions that struggle at 1v2ing or don't have the right kit to make those dank reactive plays under turret feel extremely risky to play, and theres no guarantee one's team's jg can even respond to that pressure a lot of the time because snowballing happens so quickly.
: Why i can only dodge Once per day ?
Matchmaking was worse when Riot was more lenient with dodgers. Every other queue was a "let me x or I dodge" flamefest, and it took forever to actually get into a match because people were using dodges to assemble a pubstompy team instead of circumventing troll games. People here understand your frustration, but "I want to troll and smurf at everybody elses' expense" is not a compelling argument.
: best top laners if your first pick
i lean toward FF akali when I'm forced to pick top first--even if you get paired against someone who's difficult to trade with, you can still farm under turret pretty well & scale into midgame, or even gank mid if conditions are favorable. akali is also really hard to pin-down when their jg shows up to gank--her W and E alone cover a pretty impressive distance, and flash & R really push her mobility over the top.
: why did riot rework aatrox?
a lot of his hypothetical Power-Budget--the metric of which how champions compare to one another, from a balance-perspective--was dumped into self-healing, and there was no way to balance that element of his kit without him being completely oppressive across a fair number of matchups. its a problem a lot of champions with high sustain have had to deal with--Vlad & Swain were intentionally undertuned for the longest time, because when they were "balanced" they choked-out the toplane champion pool and made otherwise-decent champions almost unplayable.
: Some depressing stats about Malphite
They were losing lane because they're meta slaves who didn't take Klepto, like a Big Brain toplane genius such as myself. Statistical-data doesn't mean jack for a champion barely anybody plays on a regular basis.
: What Should i do When im in promo and my teammate in champ select says "IM TROLL HAHA"
when someone says something in promos, they usually mean the exact opposite of what they said, so you're in the clear OP
