Same thing as any other lane when every lane feeds, cry in a corner

Buff urgit then If a champ is reliant on a semi-op keystone to function theres a deeper problem at play here

While uses/passives may differ, the reality is that both AP and AD champs have at least 1 armor/damage item and at least 1 MR/damage item. Looking at it objectively, I think Maw and Banshees are fairly equal. And I think Zhonyas and GA are fairly equal. While they function very differently, the idea is essentially the same: "If I get engaged on, I have a way to survive the burst". But when you look at QSS, it has a very specific function for counter-play against teams with long duration CC a la Skarner/Malz, or teams with lot's of good ranged catch a la Zoe/Morg/Lux/Thresh/Anivia/TF/Sej. > > There are a number of reasons that making literally identical versions of Maw, Zhonyas, GA would not be balanced. A lot of it has to do with counterplay and damage patterns. Next season it looks like Edge of Night is essentially going to be an AD Banshees, and I think that one is pretty balanced. But for now, just imagine a Vlad going being able to build an AP version of GA on top of his pool/Zhonyas. Or something like Cassiopia/Ryze/Anivia stacking Seraph's along with hp/ap items, then then having both Zhonyas and a GA. When a ADC goes down with GA, they require auto attacks so if their team gets wrecked they can just respawn and die. If a mage with GA goes down, they can respawn and just nuke someone or maybe even multiple people before they get gibbed again. isnt that why mages bring cleanse and they have the better stronger items than ad champs
Cleanse doesn't work on suppress. Really an ap qss would only serve to counter Malz, WW and Skarner, and maybe Morde? Does cleanse work on Morde R? Honestly it's pointless until full items, you don't have to complete Merc to get qss
: Is there anything more cringe than people who...
: 5 might be a bit small of a pool...Maybe something along the lines of 7-8? Seems like a fairly good idea, though. Lets you cut out runes you won't use, while letting you still use the mix. Also, they did change the name. It's "Prototype: Omnistone", not Kaleidostone. :P
Kaleidostone is better I wasn't making an actual number suggestion, the number of runes could be tweaked for balance as well

: Rylias d9nt do dmg therefore it cant proc the spellshield lmao.
No ya dink, Ludens procs Rylais...
: With Ohmwrecker and ZZrot gone, Frozen Heart now feels like the forgotten item
Since the buff to Last Whisper items, pure resists went from pretty bad to REALLY bad. And Health is a bit harder to come by. If you don't have a chogath style health steroid you can't really break 4k unless you build 4 hybrid items + Mogs. And the aura doesn't really do enough to offset it
: Great so Urgot going to get another indirect nerf cause Ryze and Cass are overpowered champions
They aren't overpowered champs, they have overpowered synergy. It's spellvamp all over again. they removed it on all but Gunblade because its hard to balance, and now they put it on a rune. And if Urgot was weak they would buff him directly
: Snowball was put in for a reason. It was put in to combat against heavy poke champions. Snowball is the most broken summoner spell, one pick or one good engage can swing a team fight and win you the game especially if you land it on a damage dealer. The cooldown for snowball is quite long. around 40 secs if you decide not to go in. IDK why you would need {{summoner:13}} , it is by far the WORST sum spell in ARAM.
It's the worst summ period. No champ has mana issues that can't be fixed with a tear item. You are literally wasting a summ slot by taking it. In non ARAM modes you just recall.
: Why Does Ludens Proc Spellshield?
Or Comet Or Rylais (wait did they fix that yet?)
: I actually like playing against Xerath support. It's got clear counterplay (buy Athene's, take MR runes, predict the skillshots). The same I can't say about Senna. I think it's partly that she can't miss her Q, and partly because she's just overpowered at the moment. But then that's just me as a support {{champion:61}} main.

: Yeah play a sidecharacter toplaner, have literally 0 impact not being able to snowball even your lane. Typical ADC/Mid response: only ADC/Mid exist, only they matter, every other role should play around them.
Top isn't a solo carry role.
: because Kaisa needs more items.
Kaisa can already build both. This would actually level the playing field for the rest of the adcs. And yes Kaisa can have as many items as she wants, that was clearly par of her design plan, and why she gets special effects for building AP, AD, and AS. She can only build 5
: Why does Ryze earn so much Mana/lvl when he scales so well with Mana?
He needs more mana than most champs so he gets more mana than most champs. Also if I'm not mistaken MpL is counted as base mana and doesn't work with his BONUS mana scalings (I could be wrong here its a fuzzy area) Not really a sick philosophy, it's perfect common sense.
: How do you deal with Akali?
IMO she needs to lose her Q slow. Or at least have it dropped to like 10% and raise it's duration to 1s. She needs no CC at all.

What do restoring and increasing the max value of mana and energy have to do with ultimates?
Apparently I'm a few patches behind. I didn't realize they had straight gotten rid of that function. Probably for the best...
: Item CDR stacks additively with itself and Cosmic Insight. Ultimate Hunter stacks multiplicatively (additively with itself). The cloud dragon buff stacks multiplicatively (additively with itself). The max CDR for ultimates is 75.25%.
EDIT: You saw nothing, pay no attention to the post below this one
: Where is a better MOBA?
HotS is solid. Slow update speed, but it's fairly balanced DotA is supposedly pretty good Not sure how SMITE held up...
: I mean, for newer people or newer accounts (or people like me who have these useless low BE champ shards that cant be used on anything good because they disenchant for trash), they should allow you reroll champ shards for a random perma champ shard, or allow you to combine 3 of one kind of shard into a perma shard.
They used to do that but it was too easy for people with all champs to reroll for the new guy. Can't have that...
: Why do i ''lose'' games when im playing good?
It's a team based competitive game, the enemy team played better than your team.
Raiyza (NA)
: No mage should actually scale from mana AND Ap, honestly. Just buff his mana scaling and make him pure mana scaling.
...wtf? If they had to touch his scaling they should cut the mana scaling a little and maybe put it back into his AP ratios. Maybe even only do that for his Q. That way he doesn't trade well with only tear.

Darius + Yuumi they go together. Kinda reminds me of Zoe and people complaining about her W. Eventually something else will come out for those people to complain about especially after they eventually realize that she is very underwhelming. Once LCS players move on from that champion, so will the community. Long story short, her W is way to core for her kit and identity to even touch(i still think the delay was a mistake bcz it feels clunky and like a bandbaid change, its way too obvious that it wasn't meant to be there). People should be thinking about other things instead of that.
My only complaint about her W isn't that it's op, it's that it should have been on a support kit, not this 'artillery assassin' bs. Had her W been a more consistent damage source they could have rebalanced her numbers so she wasn't so reliant on her one-two punch to exist.

Why would you play Fiora if Tryndamere did the exact same thing? So you completely agree with what i said but just want to use Riven and Yasuo as examples of champs that need to have their skill requirement brought down.

I think the outliers need to be addressed. Not all champs need to have the same skill requirements but things like Yas, Akali, Riven, Irelia need to be brought in line.
: I like how suddenly, because ryze was played in LCS, he's now suddenly broken. Yet 2 months back, people were dodging and calling me a troll for playing ryze.... Now, I won't say that he isn't strong, because he is, but he does have a glaring weakness, mainly that his kit is targeted, except for q, meaning if you aren't in his range, he can't do jack to you. And considering he has a short range (for a mage), it becomes pretty simple to beat the crap out of him. The main problem with ryze, imo, is conq giving him lots of healing and extra damage. The healing is being reduced for ranged champs next patch, so now we just need to see if they will also make it harder for ranged champs to stack. EDIT: Also, MR itemization is honestly pretty shit atm. I'd rather that Riot focus on making MR items worth buying before looking to directly nerf mages, so that ap champs don't get double whammied
2 months back Ryze didn't have conqeueror 2 months back did he even still have his shield? Or was that after he lost it and his E got changed? Nothing to do with LCS. Faker played Ryze in the LCS with great success for a long time when ryze had a 45% winrate. The Ryze of 2 months ago isn't the Ryze people are complaining about today.

Darius + Yuumi they go together. Winrate is not an accurate metric to follow really. Yuumi has a low winrate not because of the champion but because a majority of the playerbase is low elo. The minute you put Yuumi on a decently mechanical player, she becomes an incredibly oppressive champion, especially on Lucian. She can also make an Ezreal lane completely unwinnable, making a large portion of bot lane combos useless because Yuumi with an Ezreal who plays properly gets to skip lane phase and win mid-game.
Well the winrate statistics are usually taken from plat+ so thats not really relevant... According to op.gg she has ~40% WR in plat/dia, 46 in masters, 44 in GM, then she rockets to 59 in Challenger with an extremely low play rate (22 games, top 5 played have over 300 games, top 37 have over 100). Probably a dedicated duo.

You can't itemize against her, you can't outscale her, and you can't trade into her. Literally no counterplay. The only reason she isn't a candidate for a rework or gutting is because her play rate is trash there. Can't itemize? {{item:3800}} {{item:3742}}
You can try {{item:3075}} which is trash first item. You could buy {{item:3110}} which is actually okay for the matchup. {{item:3143}} ... But base tank items won't do much
Cr3ator (NA)
: Malphite ultimate
I'd rather they just neuter the AP scaling on it. If they nerf the CD tank Malph gets even worse. I have no issues with build diversity, but it has to be balanced. If you can't balance AP Malph, where the only counterplay is flash or Zhonyas, it's gotta go.
Paroe (NA)
: Can someone explain to me, simply and in kind words, what the problem with yuumi is at its core?
"Wahhhh I can't kill her" Thats literally it. Shes a subpar character built around the concept of being last to die, which is frustrating to deal with. AFAIK she has never had a 50%+ winrate but people keep crying. The biggest deal with her is the fact she can ride divers into battle. Zilean +Darius, darius will eventually leave him behind. Darius + Yuumi they go together.
: bad take man, ever since they added mark udyr has been fine if you have grasp on the mechanics
: What do you like and dislike about this year's Preseason?
You pretty much nailed it for me. Although I won't really miss ZZ'rot. More because I hated the Raptor Cloak effect than the rest. On any champ with the slightest mobility they just get to run away... Side note fuck Udyr. Also extra special note for those EXTRA SPECIAL players who build Sanguine on ARAM...

Arammus (EUW)
: help me understand sennas new itembuild
With free Crit, and AS being so weak on her, Lethality is her only other real damage multiplier. Tear only really has Essence Reaver as competition as an AD mana item, and it doesn't kick in till it's completed, at which point lane is mostly over and freely recalling is now an option.
: why are people not rational in league?
Because being rational when you're bad means acknowledging that you're bad. Can't have that!

Keep in mind Jinx W got much slower before buying attack speed. That would likely happen with Cait. The Annie style bar would be nice tho.
: This game will never resemble balance so long as there is major gap in champ required skill to play.
The only issue with the skill gap actually has nothing to do with the gap. It's when they introduce the 'high skill' champs that there's a problem. Yasuo and Riven get to be bullshit because (despite what the salty boards whiners say) they're so hard to play. If you're going to make a champ thats that difficult to play they NEED to be better than the rest, or what's the point of learning them? Why would you play Fiora if Tryndamere did the exact same thing?

: I feel like supports that don't use aftershock are lacking a keystone
Aery go gutted because of solo lanes... sigh, we just can't have nice things. I wish they would buff the shielding, or make it come back faster when used defensively. Wasn't SBP considered bad? It's progeny certainly holds up to that...
: I edited it for clarity. I have this name cuz I love playing Ashe support and people frown on it but if I have Ashe in my name they're a bit more lenient.
I've actually been wondering about that, with the new support items its probably a little better huh?
: >First off, those Garen nerfs? They are fucking HUGE! I mean, it's to the point where it will absolutely gut him Thanks Riot, I can play my champ again now that the meta slaves will pipe down, I really appreciate it. But look I'll be nice, you can forget about E max, start building BC again and Conqueror was only good on him cuz E was good so forget about it and go Fleet. I think this is what most mains will do unless they go for Grasp/Phase Rush. Also the trifroce will still be good but BC is even better cuz you shred 50% armor in like 1 sec.
What do Garen nerfs have to do with Ashe?
: Co-op vs AI is flooded by botting
Unpopular opinion: I don't mind When I play vs AI I do it for catharsis. I pick a champ I normally can't play in norms without inting my ass off (or Katarina) and farm kills. I LIKE there being fewer players because MORE FOR ME! If I want to try a new champ, I check a few things out in practice tool and move to norms. vs AI is terrible for practicing new champs because they don't play like real people. the Beginner level is so laughably bad they don't use sums, keystones, OR STARTER ITEMS. They are literally for players who have never played a moba in their life. Even in intermediate, Their movements are weird, they're hyper aggressive, and theres no jungle. Wanna practice a top laner? Sucks to be you, gotta 1v2 2 iron players. Certainly doable, but not really a learning experience.
