: Any tips for Ahri?(plat 4+ elo)
Sorry shes just gonna be banned more the higher you go shes broken.
: If this is gonna be what they produce there's literally no reason to employ a balance team.
: Is it okay to like Zoe?
No, she deserves to be deleted like Yasuo. Even worse than him though, shes just fan service and a broken kit comes with it. Its too bad that theres so much unbalance this season though that shes not even the top priority ban right now.
: snow day zoe
Snow day Zoe? What about "Remove Zoe"?
: Since I get a lot of flame for it, what are your thoughts on Lane Kayn?
: I would like to remind everyone that Jhin is not the problem
Maybe you ADC mains shouldn't of cried as if nothing should be nerfed about that role until you got Stormrazor to make up for 8.11. We know that Riot has a sweet spot for treating ADCs especially from the influence that many popular streamers who main ADC have, but perhaps it was too far making this item. Its not that we hate you, it's just that we wanted other roles to have the same amount of influence as ADCs did back then.

He has been immune to any significant nerfs for more than one season, someone on the balance team abuses him obviously.

Its a difficult thing for Riot to punish unless they have people specifically look at all the games where people are claimed to int, but they mainly rely on their shitty bot so don't expect that. They usually just chalk it up to the player doing bad in the game and not actually inting.
: Cho'Gath Rework
He should be changed since it's very unhealthy to build full tank and deal more damage than the "actual" damage carries. He can hit you with a couple of his spikes then you ult you to death if you aren't a tank yourself. Not to mention being unkillable, even moreso once he has gargoyle's.

Sure, if you enjoy more executes being added into the game even for a Lee Sin, not to mention a notable "support" that can for some reason execute people too.

You literally know the exact location where Zed will come from his ult so that's where you put your CC you were playing Vel the game you got slaughtered by him this should not have been a problem with your E 4.) You can also go resolve or stopwatch There's a reason why Zed is considered terrible in high elo (d1+) and part of that is because he has almost no winning matchups because the shit I listed above is so ridiculous

He completely counters Vel im not sure why you even brought that up. A .5 sec knockup doesn't stop him from dealing all the damage he needs to and still shadowing back right after if needed. I didn't know the resolve tree as a mage countered Zed thanks for the heads up. Of course i'll take stopwatch though, the game you tried to insult me on was blind pick? I already talked about Seeker's Armguard/Zhonya's so i guess you just didnt look. Also, just because you know that Zed is coming doesn't mean that you can deal with him, do you know about Quinn? Even Riot knows about Quinn through their patch notes, specifically stating that "The only thing faster than Valor's movement speed is Quinn's burst, and the two combine to give her opponents little time to respond even if they see her coming.". So you can't say the same about Zed, you see him coming as a mage or ADC, you accept death because even if you manage to land a bit of CC and damage on him, he'll get his combo off and be gone before you and the turret can do enough as you die by mark. Did you live with very little hp or stopped his ult with zhonya's(not if you are an ADC)? It's time to go back to base once again, just know his ult will almost be back up by the time you get back.

Sure when you don't have a million movement speed and burst like Jhin, or are inherently broken like Kaisa.
: I disagree if you take tp then you can gank bot, you can also roam down and help jg, roam down to mid, any of these are ways to affect the game. Sometimes you can't make much of an impact until late game, but I usually enjoy and make an impact when I play top or when my teammates play top they make an impact. Guess we have had very different experience in top.

Guess we have had very different experience in top. Its not like cant ever roam, its just very unlikely, bot lane is impossible unless i want to use my 360 sec CD teleport and not for top lane instead. When i use TP i also lose a lot of CS as the other laner is likely pushing and might take tower. In the state of the game where pushing is everything for roaming, you are often forced at turret by many oppresive top laners as well even moreso than mid i'd say. And you said it, you usually don't even have an IMPACT until late game, which is why its a dice roll to hope either you're team are the ones who got fed or went even.

Koujerino (EUNE)
: Easy way to get champions with money
Well first you shouldn't be perma banned and it sounds like it was deserved since you arent complaining surprisingly. I myself am close to being permabanned so i've tried to just mute all most games regardless, the game is extremely toxic and unbalanced which go hand in hand. Anyway no, they already have starter champion pack and many champions cost a low amount of RP or blue essence, you'll get essence as you rank up too and a bit from dailies. Take advantage of champion sales especially for the more pricey champions.
: Rest in Peace TellTale Games
: Depends on matchup. A lot of matchups can shit on Zed post 6. Also, your goal shouldn’t be to Win against Zed post 6. If you can just stop his snowball 99% of the time you will be more useful than him. I’ve played a lot of Ori and Viktor against Zed, and I can bully him pre6, but then I accept that unless he fucks up I can probably die to him. However I know that around level 14, I can just melt his entire team, and probably 1v1 him in a sidelane. Then again, if you’re a Lux/Velkoz/Xerath you’re never gonna be able to match him in a side lane. Instead send your top laner to deal with him while you can probably deal with the enemy top with good poke and waveclear. Also Exhaust really fucks him too.

Ok again, how is it interactive to sit under tower after 6 and not do ANYTHING? You get pushed in and try to farm under tower as he either harasses you even under that trying to poke you down once for ult, or he usually roams bot side to get free kills? You even said you accept that he'll kill you unless you makes stupid mistakes which aren't apparent in high elo. Theres always bad matchups for champions, but you should never be 100% lose like you do with those champions like you mentioned and be forced to do nothing until teamfight phase. How is a summoner spell an argument with it's cooldown?
DeusVult (NA)
: Everyone hates on "added burst from Duskblade"
Nah, many people have a problem with burst damage in general this season like me. It's just even worse on items like Duskblade and Stormrazor. It makes the champions who are already burst-oriented like Zed awful to play against.

The moment he ulties on you to kill you, he'll shadow back out as soon as hes in any danger. Nice try tho.
: Serious question: Why did you make Stormrazor?
The real reason is that ADCs cried for a couple patches or so after their base damage got nerfed, so they gave them some overpowered burst "ADC-oriented" to make it up to them, it's always a love letter to them. Every top-tier ADC uses it as well as champions in other roles.

: Darius doesn't need more damage buffs
Darius is just a ticking time bomb in teamfights, if you focus him then you wasted too much time with you're team killing an off-tank while their "actual" damage carry destroyed you guys. If you go for the damage-carry then Darius gets 5 stacks on one person and wipes the whole team. Darius apoligists will always talk about his weakness being mobility/kiting but thats not the case when laning phase is over.
