: Worst patch ever?
All Worlds patches are terrible.
: iirc tenacity does not stack additively (barring a small number of combinations), but rather stacks multiplicatively. So no matter the amount of tenacity they introduce it would be impossible to get 100% tenacity. For instance Garen gets 60% tenacity just from his W alone, so Legend Tenacity+Mercs would put him over 100% if it was additive.
On top of that, the tenacity rune in Precision stacks up over time and the other one is situational, so you're not going to get the full benefit all the time.

Boards Home Gameplay Boards Gameplay I HATE THE ONE SHOT META!!!!!!!!!!!! 16 I HATE THE ONE SHOT META!!!!!!!!!!!! beezzzuss (NA) submitted about 6 hours ago in Gameplay Scarra was complaining about the damage in this game two years ago. All the streamers look depressed and couldn't wait to stop streaming League when TFT came out. Everyone says "wow that's a lot of damage" when champs like Zed don't even have to go in to take most of your lifebar. league used to be a strategic, micro oriented game... I cannot for the life of me understand why Riot took their intellectual property and turned it into this, whatever this is. Everyone is constantly shocked- and not in a good way- about how much damage there is... Riot, please stop being stubborn and reduce damage.

: How can yuumi have 46% winrate and 42% banrate?
{{champion:157}} Banrate isn't only about winrate, sometimes people just ban it because it's not fun to play against. I've also had a teammate ban Yuumi while I was hovering her because of her winrate, so that's also a thing.

No, he's not. I see what happened, you only looked at win % and thought that was the thing to go by. The problem is, his playrate is so low, he comes up as a statistical fluke. Since Volibear's playrate is so low, literally everything shifts it. 1 player tilting and going on a losing streak effects his winrate more then is normal for a champion, same for an unusual winning streak. https://champion.gg/statistics/#?sortBy=general.winPercent&order=descend&roleSort=Top If you scroll over to the side, there's a tab named "Role Position." It uses more in depth stats to rate champions, so it's less prone to data fallacies like "Volibear won 60 out of the 100 games he was played and Morde only won 1600 out of the 3000 games he was played, so Volibear's a better top laner." Mordekaiser is the #1 toplaner. Fun fact: Volibeat is played more often in support then as a top laner. https://www.op.gg/champion/volibear/statistics/top

In TFT, maybe. Not in SR.
: towers should actually do something.
Towers are there to give more gold to the winning side so that they win harder and faster with no real/satisfying gameplay-interaction between the two teams.
: You can actually look in his match history, that said "AP Champion" that probably bursted him down, is a 27/7/21 Veigar in Aram. So in other words, the fed champion whose entire niche is doing a shit ton of damage, killed him with a lot of damage. A full build Veigar mind you, while Cho'gath was 1 item away from full build.
,+ just being really busted on ARAM
: Apparently its strong enough to warrant tanks to be a dead class when theres so much info out there that proves a tank meta is impossible.
I don't need a fucking tank meta, I just want to actually be able to play the class and not feel like it's fucking masochistic and unrewarding as all hell. How would you feel if the majority of your bruisers/assassins/ and whatever else you play could sit on a ~45% winrate for the majority of the last 3-4 years, or even just straight up fall out of their lane because they couldn't even maintain that abysmal standard, and Riot literally doesn't give a fuck. {{champion:3}} {{champion:111}}
: You do know Code evolves? They weave it every patch and unweaving it just for something that isn't going to make as much profit as current League, or TFT, just isn't worth the effort.
It could make a pretty good amount of money, all it has to do is draw back in some of the old players that quit.
: idk why people downvoted you, guess they dont understand what /s means.
We understand what Sarcasm is, we're annoyed as hell because everytime we ask for tanks to be DURABLE, people reference the tank meta: Where tanks did so much DAMAGE they no longer needed other classes to win, claiming that proves they can't be allowed to function at all, outside competitive, I guess.

Too much damage isn't the only issue here, there are far more fundamental issues that exist for the role known as jungle. In a vacuum yea, a lot of junglers on paper sound really strong, but why do you almost never see any of those champs played in lane? {{champion:60}} {{champion:77}} {{champion:59}} {{champion:19}} and mostly {{champion:120}} are a couple of the highest winrate jungle champs in the game right now. Many of them are outstanding duelists too, but why don't we see any of them in a lane? I think i've only ever seen {{champion:120}} once in toplane, but otherwise theres another core issue that's preventing these 'damage and cc powerhouses' from being in any other lane.
Often, that has more to do with the champions lacking something they need in the lane they'd otherwise have gone to. Waveclear is the most common one, but also range or trading tools/rotations. things like that. Sometimes it's because champions get bumped out of their lane by poor design choices {{champion:30}} Funnily, Taliyah's basically the best example of all of this. Nerfed out of lane // nerfed out of jungle. {{item:3073}}

Everyone who suggests this change tilts me off the face of the planet. > > Also, has no one realized that Riven's winrate is UP because her playrate is HALFED? From a 53% wr 20% play rate to a 53% wr, 11% pickrate. This means majority of players are mains now, instead of simply being bandwagoners. There's a reason the winrate will be so high. Her Q is her bread and butter. So if you guys plan on nerfing Q CD + E CD that means Riven's overall damage is going to have to go up to compensate for the stupid long CDs. You guys have so many fighter's in this game talking about CDs that no one understands that her CD is in line with literally every other fighter/bruiser. > > CDs are the worse things to hit on Riven because she's literally never had a CD change from basically release. To top it off, Riven was incredibly weak before DD and conqueror's came out so let's stop and actually use our brains for a second. What they CAN do is decide which part of the game they want Riven to be really strong and which part she scales off. > > They can increase early damage while decreasing late damage or decrease early while increasing late. This is the simplest change that they can do for Riven. Not the change you're suggesting, which is actually crippling the champ with unneeded CD that makes her unable to 1v1 any champ. Ok fine keep the cooldowns, but in that exchange give her then mana or energy, and we will see those "mains" :).
Kazekiba (NA)
: because his E does a billion damage, and high AP makes the DoT from his R deal massive damage, too. you don't want 1v1 damage in ARAM, or tower pushing. There's no split pushing there's minimal auto attacking for anything under 600 range, etc. Your best bet by far is dropping zone tools and dealing as much AoE damage as possible, which is what AP Nasus is good at. 300 damage every 1.5 seconds means nothing when you're going to be stun locked and killed within 2-3 seconds.
Big enough to hit most of the enemy team, and you're itemization options are just much better. Sometimes Rylais can really mess with the enemy team, or enable yours, extra antitank damage with Liandries, et-cetera

: Pantheon isn't a tank....?
That's not the point I was making, The point is the game hasn't always been this insanely polarized. Pantheon, Zed, and even Renekton used to be top tier champions in a game with tanks. There was a point where the top 3 midlaners were Zed, Orianna, and Jayce. You're wrong. It's happened before and it could easily happen again if Riot didn't just hate everything they'd have to do to rebuild it. The game has only been polarized like this since Riot tore down the healthy interactions that used to support diverse classes and gameplay. And then stacked a shit ton of snowballing mechanics on top of it.
: Because it's not really ever going to happen where both feel impactful. Assassins tend to fail in high-durability environments. Once tanks (or hell, even juggernauts) are meta assassins start losing usefulness. Especially in ones where there's a lot of CC and teamfighting.
Bull shit. This game actually used to be like that. Zed and Pantheon used to be top tier champions, even back in 40-60 minute games. It's not impossible, Riot just hates half the things they'd have to do achieve it. Half the time, they don't even try. So we're stuck with this god damn carousal instead of any attempt at actual balance.

: If it's diamond + only wouldn't that imply it's because that's only like .09% of the player base (or whatever the number is) and the players at that level know not to let Kog go online and be able to auto attack with abandon? That's kind of like saying Yi isn't good at dia+. No kidding.
It's kind of the other way around, constant assassins in low elo with no teamwork makes him shit in low elos, but he's supposed to thrive in higher elos where people actually play the game well.

Schenix (NA)
: Because IBG and Manamune/Murumana are outdated items for most other champions and are basically only built by him consistently. It points out the age of these items relative to everything else that has been introduced or re-introduced into the game. IBG has a lot of isolated abuse cases on ranged champions, but it's good for melees to stick to a target while still having a small damage boost and decent stats. Even then, melees aside from Ornn, Poppy, and Malphite, don't consider it much at all. The item needs an update, much like Manamune. Manamune/Murumana in general could be renamed Ezreal's Arrow at this point and we wouldn't care. It needs a complete overhaul to be an actual item in League of Legends and not just Ezreals personal hex core. BotRK and Trinity Force are among the best items in the game on basically any champion that can build them and use them, that's not limited to Ezreal in the slightest.
It's worth noting that both Jace and Varus used to build Manamue and play as AD Poke mage-likes, but both of them were reworked away from doing that. The problem with Muramana is that there aren't many AD casters with Mana to use it. And when there is one, they'll probably prefer Lethality now.
: I love how it’s only “abuse” if a ranged champion builds it.
Adding onto what's already been said: It really sucks when this happens and the item has to be balanced around how much stronger it is on Ezreal, so much so that it becomes crap on the champions that it was supposed to be made for.

: not everyone can use small % max health / % bonus health. not everyone can use % armor / % bonus armor.
to be fair, on any item other then boots you'd be 100% right. It's a little more difficult to predict how this would compete when the only things it has to overpower to become a problem are other boots. Mages and ADCs would never build this over damage items, but it's harder to tell whether they'd build it over their boots. Still think it'd be kind of a bonus to the game, maybe Tanks could use a boot item to build when mercs aren't mandatory.
: Maokai’s q buff is a perfect example of Riot’s horrible approach to balancing tanks
And if this buff actually took him over the top you know instead of reverting it, they'd just use it as an excuse to nerf the rest of his kit. Root duration down to .5 seconds at all ranks on W and .5-1 second on ult. Balanced!
