Ahri Baka (EUNE)
: Do people like you really view everything as "dying" ? it became so stupid ever since the whole fortnite thing When people waiting their champion to get a skin They of course want that skin to be 1350 RP , why would an Udyr main want his skin to be 750 RP or 975 RP after waiting 3 years?

Honestly, I do wish i still liked riot. and I dont want to wish bankruptcy on a company. But at this point.... At least then the talented people still working there can go to companies that actually make good games and care about their employees and customers, and dont have a controversy every other month. So not EA, or Activision/Blizzard, or bethesda. Honestly way too many game companies are scummy as fuck these days, at least there are a few good boys making GAMES and not WALLET EATERS still.

: @Riot, please bring back King of Clubs Morde's long flowing cape
I fully agree, KoC is also my favorite morde skin, cause I like the sinister but more regal feel it has compared to the other skins. While i feel like the armor and everything is still fine, you can never have too much cape.
: Why do you say "It's only ARAM?"
I said this the other day. I almost always say it to some dude who is just being a major ass to his team (i have done it to someone on the other team before) Its less of an excuse and more of a way to discredit someone who thinks he needs to stomp to have fun and ruin everyone elses mood. It doesnt mean that we arent trying, moreso that there isnt much of a reason to be upset at your teammates because the result of the game hardly matters, and team balancing is weirder in non-rank modes anyway. (why flame the bronze you got placed with as diamond? you got placed there of course they will be worse)
Rioter Comments
: I don't understand why mobile/evasive champs get to enjoy strong damage values
Because without damage, AND without tankiness/cc. They would be very fast ninjas with pointer fingers as weapons. And the trade off on mobility IS more damage, sure an assassin can kill an enemy in his rotation, but an adc can kill an entire team by the time that rotation is back up, and a mage can do waves of damage over a whole team.

He is gonna get a nerf, If i had to guess they had the buff ready cause they knew the nerf was gonna hurt him bad. In fact websites show he was at 47% before the crit changes. That is a 3% variation, does that means he needs another hotfix buff? no. If after he had a hotfix buff he has been at 47% id say that was a deserved buff.
: As a Yasuo main, I'd say patch 9.3 marksmen itemization pretty much nerfed him. The real reason why any Yasuo player built PD was because it had the highest attack speed bonus amongst all Zeal items, which allowed him to get his Q to the fastest CD possible. The 12% reduced damage from the target he's fighting was just a bonus. That's not the case anymore, in fact it's become the lowest attack speed Zeal item alongside Rapid Firecannon. This limits Yasuo to having to build Statikk Shiv for the attack speed but inherently lose wave management because there's a high change that one E+Q will rid him of an entire wave to mobilize through which is why no one ever build Statikk Shiv on him anymore because reposition is much more valuable than wave clear. Wave clear is already done with his AoE from E+Q or Q alone. Current Phantom Dancer also has a tacked on Lifeline ability that would hinder his build to go into a Sterak's Gage. An item that helps him survive in teamfights when he's in the middle of it all using his Ultimate. Now to achieve more or less the same stats and build path that relies on a Lifeline item, he has to choose whether to go Statikk Shiv + Sterak's Gage and lose wave control, and ultimately losing his ability to run around through minion waves, or build Phantom Dancer and lose out early Q cd and Sterak's Gage Lifeline. It's a 2 pronged nerf honestly. He builds Frozen Mallet still but again you'd still want Sterak's Gage along with the FM to allow Sterak's to proc properly.

Personally i dont care about his balancing, hes my highest mastery point champ technically somehow, but i havent played him in 2 seasons. I just despise the constant complaining things that are LITERALLY BEING ADDRESSED.

: tl;dr: OP doesn't want to pay for stuff. I'd be fine with a BE-based pass if it a) had a real cost (1-3k is not much at all) and if it had **significantly** reduced rewards from the others. Along the lines of 50-100 extra tokens from missions, in case you missed a few.

Along the lines of 50-100 extra tokens from missions, in case you missed a few. I buy most of the passes, i have little problem with them. But they are certainly not liked at all, people have adamantly expressed how much they dislike having to pay to participate in events. And considering a lot of the rewards are chromas or icons you dont need to pay 20k BE to participate that doesnt solve the problem

: SOME PLACE MALICIOUS AND WAY MORE METAL
I am expecting the VGU after mordekaiser to release before morde does. Similar to what happened with aatrox. And tbh i think that would be a good thing in the end. More time for morde means less bugs hopefully...
: Riot: "We're having Akali keep her shroud as it makes her very unique."
I despised the fact Irelia had disarm and shieldbreak. Why? Not because i thought they made her stronger, but because i felt like they tacked those on because of what was strong at the time. ADCs and Enchanters are strong? Let's give our next release champion a disarm and shieldbreak despite neither of these existing prior to this champion. That is the most piss-poor way to balance possible. I'm happy they removed that awful example.
: The real question is, why would you change anything about Diana in general. Champion was never picked in competitive in 2018. if I'm correct, only few people can play her in soloque at highest ranking ( RatherDeadThanD1 ) is currently one of the few on Eune that can pull her off above Diamond 1, just like few rare people on other servers ( ZAIIRO on Euw, Arcsecond on NA etc. ). Removing something like this kills off huge amount of tools needed to pull her off in the first place.

Its not just irelia that has this issue, all the triforce building bruisers through out this insane damage.

Personally i find Fizz and Leblanc the most frusterating champs in the game, but im not gonna call them "unbalancable"

This issue is before the HP changes Mana was a lot more vibrant of a blue, and they dulled it to the same color as Yasuo because... it looks better maybe? But it can be confusing/misleading if only for a second.

Hey meddler, is it possible to maybe get a buff in all seperate modes from rift detailing the differences from rift on that mode based on champions/runes. For instance if you are Zed with Dark Harvest on Aram the buff will say the differences in dark harvest. Then if you go over to Nexus Blitz on Zed the buff will show the stat differences between rift and blitz? I feel like for people that dont look far into it, it can cause some unexpected misunderstanding for champions from 1 mode to another. Is this possible?
