: Heroes of the storm made me realize how badly designed the gameplay feel...
Uhh hots has power gating and scaling too Murky is awful early but scales amazingly Compare Fenix (early/mid game focus falls off a cliff later) to Valla (Late game vayne carry) There are things hots does better but league has its upsides too, power scaling isnt one of them
: Why the fuck do the skarner pulls in Odyssey last like 6 seconds
Its broken by CC, thats why But in general the hazards are more fucking annoying and dangerous than the fucking mobs

So should picks for each lane only be restricted to what op, champion gg whatever considered a champ in a particular role to be? Why not just segregate champ picks by role then to forbid that type of champ picking? Why not say that marksmen can only go bot, enchanters can only go support, bruisers can only go top etc. If anyone seriously ends up having a problem with my champ picks, then I'll dodge. No one's had a problem with me picking that, or Liss support, or Viktor, Ziggs, Yasuo, TF etc. support. I'm not doing this in ranked because ranked is where there is something at stake for losing, and because ranked is game mode that isn't fun. Deriving fun from ranked is not ideal and shouldn't be happening, it's inherently unfun. That's what normals are for, though. I don't do these sorts of things in games where there are any serious consequences for losing.

I don't do these sorts of things in games where there are any serious consequences for losing. No, it should be restricted to fucking reason. Picking a gold dependent cc-less champ as a squishy support is fucking trolling, you arent performing your role. You want to play grag support? Tanky, CC, and doesnt need a lot of gold. Go for it Liss? Has ample CC and lane harass, not as gold dependent to be a peel bot. Sure go for it. Ziggs? Has lane harass, long range, and applies a unique tower pressure regardless of gold income. Could be dank, try it Yasuo? Short ranged, melee carry that needs items to be useful. Has no poke, isn't particularly tanky, contributes literally windwall and an Ult IF your carry has a knockup because without gold for AS items you aint gettin many. No, fuck off this is not a support. Karthus? Moderate ranged, gold dependent mage carry. Brings global ult which is mediocre without items, a slow +MR shred, and pressure after death I guess. No fuck off, this is not a support. You noticing a trend here? Gold dependent champs tend to be shit early game and at all parts of the game till they get said items. Taking these champs into a role where they dont get gold is intentionally gimping your team.
: Riot, we know you meant well with Odyssey

: Challenge: Every Champ Can Support
Every champ is capable of doing things to support the team in some regard because some things a support does regardless of kit. Not every champion can be a support No, they cannot. Period end of that discussion. Support is more than just existing in bot lane and not getting farm Vlad is not a support, he does not support. Vlad is extraordinarily gold dependent, only has two short range weak slows for CC, is weak early game due to said gold dependency, is generally a short range character, and doesn't even offer meat shield protection. The only utility he brings is his ult which is mediocre for a support's only purpose. Don't pick Vlad support, he is almost literally everything a support isn't.

: ITT: Mechanics or combos for your main that you think only mains know or think about
Uhhh {{champion:267}} - E the buff applies to the champion not the autos, so you can apply E while auto-attacks are mid-flight and still get the damage and slow. You can use it while auto attack harassing, throw an auto and self-cast E while its in the air. That way they dont see the buff on you and back away. Q - The AoE from the splash of Q applies your passive, if your team is chasing someone just out of reach you can Q allies for movement speed. Also stop just randomly throwing Q's in lane. Use it when you are going to hit usually as follow up cc, you dont have lane pressure without it and it tilts me. Passive - Scales VERY well with Ap, more than most people expect. Dont be afraid to build the AP support items {{champion:6}} - All I got is, remember your ult has decent impact damage so when you can ult at like 40-50% depending on how the trade is looking. Also LEARN YOUR COUNTERPICKS - The Urgod doesnt have many bad matchups but dear lord his bad ones can be really aids. Yorick and Olaf come to mind

Fucking really? Hitting jungle exp so now I constantly feel like I'm down a lvl while power farming, god forbid I have the audacity to actually gank, still feels shitty

Ugh posting in a troll thread You literally just got Kai'sa, her shoulders arent broad its her stupid void jetpack shit. Riot has been making up for lost time and designing female champs differently. Now they arent all cookie cutter feminine character, and that appeals to far more people than the old model. You get actual characters instead of tropes Imo your opinion on appearance is shit. Kai'sa and Xayah (who is basically edgy bird ahri in looks) are hideous with no appeal but you're interested in Zoe? Ok, buddy. Regardless badass cool females >>>>>>> bland sexy females You also left people out of your list, dont particularly care about your opinion of them but be thorough.

Surviving merely to fight to survive another day vs existing without being able to be anything different than anyone else. > > Its more nuanced than anarchy is bad, both sides are terrible, but which side would you prefer? > I'm more chaos, I would rather exist in a world where nothing is set and anything is possible than a world where everything is predetermined and nothing ever changes. The deal is that GK Garen and GK Darius both stink like shit, given both are ultra extremists that no one should even be following in the first place. However if you really have to choose, it's no denying that GK Darius's shit smells just a little bit worse. Between 2 tyrant gods where 1 asks for co-existence under the condition of submission, while the other desires a world in which only they exist (remember, GK Darius longs for a world in which only the strong exists and there is absolutely no rule; no moral code, no order, no nothing. This means they could and WILL kill everyone in the world, including his followers, as soon as his nemesis is fallen. Why? Because you were dumb enough to help his cause, and he couldn't give a shit about you, even less than GK Garen), the former is a small price to pay in comparison to the latter, let's be real. It's easy to say "I'd rather die than knee!" But let's be pragmatic, a dead person can not do anything. Not to mention, it is also quite childish to easily tote around the idea of "I'd rather die than knee" or other similar variants, because let me ask you, "DO YOU, REALLY?" Remember, GK Darius is going to kill you either way, it's just a matter of time, so do you seriously prefer death over kneeing? Ask yourself as if your life depends on it and listen to your answer. ........... ........... It is also a fallacy that destroying order would somehow mean "a world where nothing is set and anything is possible than a world where everything is predetermined and nothing ever changes." Why do you think progress in every possible sense and aspect only happened after civilisation happened? Because if everyone is just fighting over a piece of meat rather than working together to get more meats in the future, there will never be anything, let alone "anything is possible". Yeah good luck believing anything is possible with your axe and your neighbour's corpse on the table, or you're on the table and it's your neighbour who's holding the axe. Things only happen on the basis of something common shared by people, and the only lasting and not knee-jerk initiative will be one of order. A child has to be nursed by their parent, someone must discover knowledge and share with others and teach to the young, people must agree for any forms of standardisation to happen (the basis for any measurement, economy, language, moral code, law, formality, fundamental rights, philosophy, agree-to-disagree etc etc etc), and countless other things, can only exist because some semblance of order is present to allow product platform to happen. And an utter defiance of any forms of order means none of this will happen or sustain at its presence, ie any society and any forms of progress and accomplishment is impossible. Without order, it isn't just the limits that's going to go 'poof', there will simply be nothing PERIOD. A world where there is nothing and makes its point to be nothing will never create any possibility. No, quite the contrary, a lawless world is what creates a stale world where nothing ever changes, everything is pre-determined, and nothing is possible.
In God-King Garen's world you exist on a whim till you disagree then you are executed In God-King Darius's world you exist till someone stronger than you kills you Its not a fallacy, your bias has taken anarchy to the extreme but you aren't taking order to the extreme. In the first scenario your options are to conform or die, you dont have any other options. To do something different is to die, individuality is a chaotic element fundamentally. As Anarchy seeks to stamp our order, Order seeks to stamp our chaos. So you exist, but you dont get to be unique or special or different. Everyone experiences the same shit, differences are stamped out with extreme prejudice. Difference IS chaos In the second scenario your options are survive or die, how you do it is up to you. Maybe you try to hide or possibly you try to become the strongest. Garen in his world is a tyrant beholden to no one, Darius plays by the same rule as everyone else in that all you have to do is get stronger than him. That's the only way to truly live in his world. Blagh blagh you cant hope to match a god, in this world people can ascend to godhood see God-Fist Lee Sin. So that must be your goal to survive. Anarchy in Darius's world leads to nothingness as all is eventually destroyed Order in Garen's world leads to pointlessness as everything is controlled and freedom is nonexistent You reference our growth as a society as a product of order, yes SOME order. Not EXTREME order to the point to which disagreements and differences aren't allowed. Our world has only grown as it has because people are different with different experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds. Our world is one with chaos and order. Garen seeks to removes chaos, and Darius seeks to remove order. Comparing either world to ours is nonsense You disregard that the world of pure Chaos allows for anything to happen by its nature A world of pure order allows nothing to happen uncontrolled that's the point of order Yes I would rather fight for my chance to live, than bend the knee and throw away my freedom. "Bury me in the ocean, with my ancestors that jumped from the ships, because they knew death was better than bondage." edit: Reading through your prior posts you put too much value on existing. there is a difference between existing/surviving and living. In Garen's world you gave up your freedom to exist, not to enjoy life but to exist. To 'live' in Garen's world is to be executed for being different. In Darius's world you fight to survive so that one day you may live.

The irony with anarchism is that without order to oppose, anarchism is just nothing. That's why such an ideal will never work. Because it's rebel for rebel's sake, and with destination set at exactly nothingness. At least order attempts to _make something_. Will you be content, that the ideal you're following, is just an overly aggressive and destructive meaninglessness with a pair of good lips sending virtue signals of "freedom", while the only thing it does fundamentally is oppressing other people's freedom to disagree with them? Well, that's anarchism.

: What's the point of using rock types in Pokemon?
Stealth Rock Rock is a solid offensive type (Flying, Bug, Fire, and Ice are weak to it and only Fight, Steel, and Ground Resist) **Stealth Rock** Some of the most defensive pokemon in the game are rock _Stealth Rock_ Sandstorm Team - Rocks get 50% Special Defense in Sand (not steel or ground) _**STEALTH ROCK**_
: When we were iterating through early versions of Conqueror (originally called Embiggen), the stats given were adaptive, and we found some problematic abuse cases with a variety of champions - mages, tanks, and assassins that were all not intended to be served by the rune. The final shape and location of the rune makes it difficult for those champions to access the power of Conqueror effectively, but there were still enough concerns about champions like Fizz that it was decided not to go back to adaptive. It's something that we might look back at in the future as we understand the rune a lot better now (given it's been on Live quite a while) and could probably make an adaptive version work at some point, but it's not a priority as Conqueror is currently filling its purpose and there's not a strong compelling reason to make it adaptive - likely only some fringe case users that might benefit some from it.

Thank you for the response, Fizz is literally the one AP champ I didn't consider. I was thinking stuff like Ekko and Kass wouldnt be bad but yeah the fish could be a problem, though tbh I think that fizz couldnt take it as is its not like fizz doesnt benefit from the AD when doing his combo. Not sure I want to make that trend popular though, *shudders at AD bruiser Fizz* Thanks again! {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
: PBE Chat with the Playtest Team - 8.12
Yo, I asked this question earlier but no one answered Why did you guys make conq unique among runes in that it doesnt give adaptive stats? What was the design call? There were a couple champs that I thought it would be good on, but I was hesitant because I wasnt sure if the AD over AP might cost me hard in the early game. The three champs I had been thinking were Singed, Rumble and Morde. After a couple games, I can say I dig it on Singed (in certain matchups) and Morde in general, I dont play rumble anymore

Her jumping passive has no business being on an ADC, and until they remove it and push her the partner/duo/teamwork ADC I dont want to see her exist in my games. Do you remember when she was first released and single handledly warped the meta around her by forcing teams to carry tons of point and click, targeted, hard CC? To the point to where Annie, Lissandra, and Nautilus came back into the meta COMPETITIVELY? Yeah I'll never forget that shit, fuck her HARD But that was back when I was a jungle main playing Shyvana and Skarner, so you might see why I'm biased against Ms.Hopsalot
: Did anyone else notice Kalista has never gotten a skin
Until they fix her they dont want people playing her, so she gets no skins

: I'm queing for Support and getting filled into Jngl
Jg is ass since the changes, I played them on the PBE before I havent touched jungle on live since they put that shit forward I've mained Jungle and Support since I started back in Season 2, I've been through some jungle changes but these xp changes were assanine
: Star Guardian 2018 Predictions (AKA Build your own Star Guardian Team)
{{champion:37}} -leader {{champion:163}} {{champion:245}} {{champion:498}} {{champion:497}} I want the bottom 4 to get star guardian skins, Sona im more neutral on, maybe just maybe {{champion:102}}
: Upcoming Jungle Changes for 8.10
Yeah mixed reaction that add up and ultimately makes me HATE these changes - the mana/talisman changes, go for it I want more junglers - echo changes, glad its on your radar, see the above - one scuttle. sure why not its an obvious competitive change - Buffing it to make it a need to get objective, don't like it favors skirmishers too much ESPECIALLY with the next change - Exp Nerf, ABSOLUTELY FUCKING NOT this sounds awful. Like fuck I've been a jungle/support main basically since I started playing (season 2), and recently I've been avoiding playing jungle. This change would completely drive me out of it. FOUR fucking camps just to hit lvl 3? What are junglers supposed to do? Fight each other and ward? Yeah this stops those early lvl 3 ganks, but then what? Ganking when down in lvls is risky as fuck, if you arent full HP some laners might just fucking kill you in the attempt. Skirmishing counterjunglers would probably reign supreme again which is positive or negative depending on perspective, but this is one of those changes that just shouldnt see the light of day. I was neutral/positive about every other aspect of the changes, and I HATE them as a whole. Consider that when you think of just how strongly against those exp change I am. {{champion:203}} {{champion:427}} - What about these two? Kindred would get fucked on marks early, and Ivern just gets to cheese scuttle. Nunu might be an issue too
: How the hell hasn't Jhin's rageblade bug interaction been fixed or at least bloody disabled yet?
Basically what ward said, there is really nothing to fix, its not a bug. The interaction is working as intended, I imagine Riot is internally checking the numbers to see if its actually a problem. His AS doesn't scale, so it'll take him a while to stack it up and really get that high AD. He fires a little faster than one shot a second, so with free fire the fastest he can max stack about 8-8.5 seconds with constant shooting including his reload time. Considering how little stats it gives initially, its a super ramp item. Personally I like the idea of it having a unique interaction with Jhin where he slowly builds up to murder mode. But I've only played against it like twice and neither time was really an issue, and I don't think I've ever had one on my team.
: "Hey guys, here's new lore for two of league's hated yet annoyingly popular champions, cuz you totally wanted this instead of that old lore stuff with summoners and stuff that made sense to be expanded on"

At all. The ending is fine, and somewhat fitting for Ionia. The rest of it, is pretty ugh. The Elder died trying to break her sword? That's fucking stupid. They would've been better off just going with she followed orders and now regrets her involvement in the war with every fiber of her being. It adds more weight to her crime and sentence, she realizes she did something horrible, wants to die/make up for it, and gets sentenced to reparations. As it stands, she unintentionally killed an elder, doesn't care AT ALL about who she hurt, and is being punished for something that is arguably not her fault. Idk Riven's characterization was shitty Yasuo's characterization seemed too advanced, like he had grown too much as a character to be here. This feels like the ending arc of a yasuo story, but we didn't get any of the journey it took for him to reach this point of "Yeah it was ultimately my fault, but im not ready to turn myself in". I feel like there should be more anger or vitriol toward the person who inadvertently put him in the situation to where two brothers had to take the other's life. This is part of the problem, Riot has left all these plot threads and loose ends with room for character development that is NEVER going to happen. Not because Riot is lazy, but because there are too many champions requiring too much detail to flesh out. So we get mediocre snippets like this that don't really do much of anything besides, Yasuo doesn't have anything against riven (WHICH HE SHOULD AT LEAST INITIALLY) and Riven is in Ionia court ordered to help people she doesn't give a shit about.

Sped up random rythm for teens? I'm not sure you have the right genre or muscians, sure you arent talking about Nightcore? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogMNV33AhCY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpkHJlyV7TQ
: Can Riot give us context on this new Phreak/Kobe Announcer pack?
I love the idea of announcer packs especially wackier ones, my problem with the Phreak and Kobe one is that if it isn't free, I dont see it making enough money for riot to continue it and that saddens me. Bring back the GP voice pack, do some champion voice packs, and MAYBE do some skin ones. Star Guardian, Project, DARK STAR, Pool Party, but I also want map themes/skins in those themes as well
