: The House Triumphant
Eh, we only lost because we decided to stop winning games for days on end and go do something else for the last couple weeks. Too bad we slacked off a bit. But we all know that Warband has the better players. {{sticker:darius-angry}}
: Riven is cancer
You forgot to mention {{item:3158}}. That one's kinda busted too. Or, hear me out, just run this {{champion:86}} flying brick and win lane for free with constant silences.
Azwel (EUW)
: Riven almost 54% winrate over 10% pickrate.
I've been running Electrocute and Sudden Impact on her and found better success than I did when I ran the old Conq rune. Is it worth it to run the new Conq now?
: why is Riven allowed to be so disruptive?
You've never played a low-mobility champ and got caught out by a Morgana, have you? If you think Riven can stunkill you, let me tell you that if Morgana pops off her CC, I leave my computer for a bit to go brew a tea. I'll be respawned by the time the tea's ready.
Ralanr (NA)
: The CC of Riven is really the only reason I hate her. I hate duelists who “duel” by preventing you from fighting back and then run when you can.
Or they just beat you to near-death, run for it, then hit W>Q and finish you off. I dunno, do duelist champs like that exist? {{champion:24}} What, this guy? Never heard of 'em.
SS1986 (NA)
: This is on the pbe
{{champion:82}} He has to hit something to build Fury. I'd like to see him try.

*Dies once to a Yasuo who's 0/4* "OMG STOP FEEDING HIM" *1/4 Yas flashes Mastery 7* Rito: "Lol Yas ain't broke, git gud F*****"
Áery (NA)
: After 45 games I have a 38% win ratio
I'd say give it another week for the trolls to go back under the bridge. Naturally, with a huge population increase with S9 starting up, there's going to be a noticeable increase in the amount of garbage you encounter :/ Keep in mind that some of your losses might have been your fault too. Half my losses from Ranked atm were genuinely because I played like trash and made bad calls. The rest could be chalked up to a complete collapse or trolling on my team (AFK Caitlyn with six Culls, that kind of bad).
: Winrates are seriously fragged
I have no idea what the matchmaking system is like, but to me a proper matchmaking system SHOULD be designed so that you're always challenged in some way, and you should ideally win half of your games and lose the same. IMO, if you've been slaughtering Rusters for the last ten games, the system will start pairing you against Silvers/Golds to try and give you some level of competition. If you still win, they bump you up higher until you're losing as many as you win. This isn't just how League's system works, nearly anything involving competitive matchmaking uses a similar setup to pair you up with opponents that are to "your" level. If anything, it might need to be polished to be more subtle than "stomp or be-stomped", like you probably feel it is :S
Dr Dog (NA)
: morde is our last stand
{{champion:82}} THEY'RE SUPERSIZED SO I CAN KICK THE SHIT OUT OF YOU!
: When you take Teemo Top Lane
I've found that Teemo is actually one of my better matchups with my juggernaut champs because I learned to rush Spectre's Cowl and turn his poison and shrooms into spitballs and bags of dogsh*t; annoying to be hit by and annoying to step on, but pretty much harmless :/
Moody P (NA)
: "just fight trynd before he has full fury lol"
Step 1: Stab Pencil In Brain Step 2: Pick This Brick {{champion:86}} Step 3: Build Q and rush Randuin's Step 4: Shit on him with Q and don't let him go near minions without punishment That's how toplane works
: Critical hit chance should be removed entirely, and replaced with an auto attack multiplier
All I saw from this was, "Let's make Tryndamere and Jax broken as fuck".

Lol. Go watch A New Dawn and see how Leona's doing after tanking a Darius ult to the face. That'll satisfy your interest to see lots o' blood in a cinematic. ♫SO GIVE 'EM BLOOD, BLOOD, GALLONS O' THE STUFF, GIVE THEM ALL THAT THEY CAN DRINK AND IT'LL NEVER BE ENOUGH, SO GIVE 'EM BLOOD, BLOOD, BLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD, GRAB A GLASS BECAUSE THERE'S GOING TO BE A FLOOD♫ {{champion:122}}
Quáx (NA)
: What Do You Want Most For Season 9?
I want to see Heimerdinger top stop being a thing, and for Illaoi and Renekton to see some damage nerfs. Nothing like trying to fight the equivalent of a bruiser-grade ADC that has ridiculous CC and can Quadra a team on ult.
Busty Demon (EUNE)
: I felt they were sending a hidden message. Take risks like a Draven. Never run like Jhin when the odds aren't in your favor. Fight with honor like irelia but know you are never alone in the game. Analyze every move like a Camille before you take any actions and don't panic, the best decisions are made when you are calm. Even after hope is lost and situations aren't good, enjoy the fight like Riven. And of course. Awaken the passion that you thought you lost in the past. A video made with passion and best cheering from riot. They want us to rise, climb and play. They are cheering us to win. Maybe I'm dreaming, maybe I lost my mind, yet this is how I feel about the video.
This has got to be the cleanest comment I've seen in all my time on these boards. Have an upvote.
Zedthul (NA)
: On the upcoming Dark Harvest nerf, and ? on the mechanics.
I personally think 33% health proc is good enough. It proccing off of 50% effectively stops aggro trades, where bungling it repeatedly just gives them free DH stacks :/

So what you're saying is that you want to be an Iron player?
Gramps69 (NA)
: @Riot can we PLEASE just remove keystones?
Hey, Darius main here: Why the fuck did you go close enough to a Darius to let him bleed you for true damage in the first place if you know it was going to hurt? Half of playing Darius is punishing people dumb enough to poke or last-hit right next to me when laning.

My roomie OTed Tristana for the longest time, but then she got messed around with a bit when most ADCs got indirectly nerfed, so he switched to Zoe XD But yeah, ADCs still outdamage bruisers, and the point of bruisers AFAIK is to serve a balance between an ADC and a Tank without being decent enough to do either specifically. I just like getting into a scrap and fucking someone up lmao
: If Season 9 continues as this Preseason is showing, I might as well call it quits
I play braindead juggernaut champs like Garen, Darius, and Mordekaiser because I LOVE being that fuck-off beatstick that won't die. If I DO die, it was because I played like a dumbass, pushed when I shouldn't have, tried bullying someone for turret plating money and got punched in the face by the baking class nerd, or everyone on the top half of the map flipped out because I'm only two kills and twenty CS ahead, so all three of them bounce my lane to go put my face in the dirt :/ Most of the games I've played lately have been the closest games I've ever played on League in the last few months. One game even, I was losing lane, but we stuck it out even though our base got cracked, and then we made some smart moves that we dominio'ed into crushing teamfights left right and center after that, which led to the enemy team surrendering even though they still technically could have had it. I think DH DOES need a looking-at, just to figure out how to bring it down to acceptable levels, the turret plating gold needs to go down a little (100G sounds fair to me), and they need to make the other turrets beefier so they don't collapse after two Demolish AAs. Other than that, I've been personally enjoying preseason so far. If it isn't your thing, try something different in-game, like a new champ or a new lane, or resign yourself that League is changing, and has to so it can stay relevant amongst all the Battle Royale and Blizzard garbage :/
: It's been months Riot, why the actual fuck hasn't Irelia received a nerf yet????
I think they need to nerf Irelia's resting bitch face and those pencilled-on eyebrows. The fuck is with that design? She used to look nice and graceful, and now she's a thot with a fuckload of swords that she doesn't apparently have the muscle to swing :/

: Honestly I am just wondering the same thing, I get that people care for this game but there are some things that people just need to let go of. The only way to fix this game's state is sadly out of our hands, and the company behind the creation of this game along with the employees who are responsible for the balance changes and so on, are all very ignorant. But Riot is more focused on trying to compete with other fast paced games which is causing the game to alienate itself into something that no longer, and doesn't resemble the real League. In a few years or even sooner we won't recognise this game anymore due to the amount of changes that this game has faced, but who knows anymore. They are really all about making as much money as possible at this point through skins and so on. If anything I feel sorry for those talented workers (Art/Sound/Lore teams) who have to work and be part of organization with such a bad reputation (Sexism Drama, PAX Drama, etc...).

If anything I feel sorry for those talented workers (Art/Sound/Lore teams) who have to work and be part of organization with such a bad reputation (Sexism Drama, PAX Drama, etc...). This is how I've looked at all the changes with the game. League of Legends has to compete with the likes of Fortnite, Heroes of the Storm, Overwatch, and et al. for screentime on our machines. Those other games can get wrapped up within 15min, and if PUBG has showed us anything, nobody wants to be stuck in a losing situation for over half an hour with no payoff, which is why they've been speeding it up, making buffs meaningful to fights, squishing turrets to fall over faster, etc. I don't get this sense of entitlement most of the playerbase has where they think what they say should be implemented immediately without understanding that ISN'T how QA for what is effectively a PBE/live patch is :S
: I see that everyone who doesn't agree with OP is getting downvoted, man the ADC players are PISSSED. I love it!

Yeah, I started copypasting my thoughts here and there, because I want to push these kinds of posts and it got hard for me to phrase it differently everytime after basically repeating myself a hundred times without actually being heard by Riot.
If Riot isn't listening after the first three times, they won't be likely listening from the seventh time onwards. It borders on spamming.

: I can not take another year of absolute frustration. It is sad, but I guess I will turn my back on this game after six years and spend my free time meaningfully again. I really do not get how Riot does not see they could slow down the decline of their game massively by just reverting the rune system and champion base stats. It seems like the Chinese internet café scene is too important, so they force twenty minute oneshot fiestas down our throat. I just want my favorite game back, but I guess that does not happen.

I too endorse this attitude but can you elaborate? Getting an outplay or a double kill against their top and jungler warrants the use of the /all ? or the "Almost had me there lads, maybe bring some more next time" An example of trashtalking I believe is not healthy for the game is the "OMG CANT 1v1 YOU ARE SO TRASH JUNGLER BABYSIT MORE" after dying to a level 2-3 jungler gank.
Oh no, I'm the guy who rolls the former kind of trashing. The latter is just being abusive :/ Like landing a double kill with the last kill from an R and then /all chatting the lyrics to "Slam Jam" {{champion:122}}
: For the first time since like season 3 Iost my shit on a teammate and it feels awful.
Most people will end up playing hundreds of games in their "careers" in League, and there'll always be the few where you end up with terrible people. The best you can do for yourself is to try your best next time, not let this one asshole ruin your game experience as a whole, and take it with a grain of salt at the end of the day. A lot of people take League way too seriously and think they're going to get scouted for Liquid or C9 or something, so some people act like divas and act like they're King Shit of all of League and that everyone has to let them carry or the team loses. It's telling that you were immediately sorry for going off on this guy, so I'd bet you'll learn from this one alright. Just keep your head cool. You play better that way :)

Good. I didn't like Jensen anyways. Sneaky, Svenskeren, and Licorice, however... :(

: honestly i dont like the TP change
Most times I see someone flashing a TP or Recall, it's because they're trying to bait me into Tower when I'm already kicking their ass into the dirt. They can play the "mindgames" all they want, it just lets me push further and further and farm easier.
: Can't wait to see how utterly shit Riot makes the game this season with the "Soon" excuse
I'll keep this short. Riot admitted that they really only take pro player word into account for gameplay changes. If you're not Challenger-material, don't expect those Irelia nerfs to come around again for a while unless a quarter of the pros complain. Other than that, I stick with the game out of apathy. I choose to play this game of my own accord, and I can leave and take my money with me to another game at any time.

: lmao that guinsoo's rework is trash. wth is going on here? Can we please revisit the original direction of it's first form? Thje original gave AD and AP and stacked with attacks and ability casts granting additional attackspeed and AP. It was a bad item that only a few could use but what it was trying to accomplish wasn't bad. This is a joke item even for an on-hit build
Almost like they did it to indirectly nerf Aatrox and Akali who have mixed damage.

: I wish they didn't buff infernal because generally it's anything other than infernal that people might be like meh, especially ocean. But it'll be curious to see how it goes. I don't really like 5:00 minutes before spawn, either. It will get rid of cheese junglers who can solo drake, but I feel like it will make lane go slower because bottom is going to need to prepare for the 5:00 drake. I don't know, lot to figure out between the 14:00 turret timer (plating) and the drake changes.
Before they reworked how Drakes worked, everyone always ignored every Drake unless it was Infernal. Maybe they're thinking they can knock it back to Season 7 style and get the quitters back? :P
: Patch 8.23 notes
*be a Juggernaut/Viking champ main* *comes in to see what's coming in preseason* *finds out Riot is giving me incentive to shove wimps into turrets and keep them there, if not outright kill them* *sees everyone bitching about other stuff* Your MOM is OP.
: So... No one's gonna touch Ryze, Reksai, Skarner, Azir, or Ornn? They're some of the lowest win rate in their lanes and for the most part they're severely underplayed. Can we do something about that, like make them more relevant, I know ornn's abilities and passive make him hard to lane against as he almost never needs to back, but he's super mana hungry and can hardly sustain lane against champs that don't use mana. Skarner is a weird jg, his tactic is build full speed and tank, but when it comes down to it, he has one stun which is on a huge cooldown that only lasts for a few seconds on a single person, just like malzahar's but doesn't do damage. Skarner's slow is rather hard to use and gets slower the more things it goes through, kinda making it impossible to gank a lane that has minions in it. Reksai is just underwhelming, needs a bit more power to be relevant and useable in teamfights and solo hunts. Ryze... just sucks in general, might be easier to remove that champ or totally rework him. Well thats my senseless bitching done and over with.
"severely underplayed" Literally doesn't mention Garen or any of his ilk. Fucking kek, friend. Listen to the song of my people playing champs that never see meaningful changes that make them relevant.
