: Honor System is fantastic!
I like the idea of the honor system, however there are definitely some pitfalls. One thing that bothers me is that being positive isn't actually a huge factor in getting honors if you won the game. Most of the time they'll just give it to whoever just carried the game. I'm not saying that's wrong, but it misses the point sometimes. I've seen toxic players get 3+ honors just because they carried the group.
: Can't pretend anymore tbh
_Wait..._ Janna and cancer don't rhyme.
: 10 bans were a lie, Riot Games?
It's in normal draft only right now. Stop acting so entitled.
: Coming This Preseason: Runes Reforged
Cautiously optimistic about the changes. It seems like it will help players in their pre-game without having to look up what the pros run. People making their own decisions based off of their own play-style is the ultimate sign of success for a system like this.

: Damage Creep Is Disgusting, Seriously.
Here's what i'm seeing, and this is just from the view of a Silver level player. Yi is at his late game, which is obviously his strongest point. Even though you may not be behind by the average gold of the game, you are most certainly behind Yi's power curve. The reason Yi doesn't dominate 40+ minutes into the game (yes, I know there are exceptions to this) is because people hit their late game to match him and he falls off either hard or just enough to lose that edge he had all game long. Next is your build. Cinderhulk is a given, you need your jungle enchant. Your only full item other than your jungle item is Righteous Glory. At this point in the game, Yi has most likely designed his build to counter a predicable high armor build on your part. The only problem is, both of your full items give health and not armor. This means that a Yi designed to shred through armor has less armor to shred through than if you went another path such as rushing Thornmail. I completely understand why you built health. Armor doesn't help against true damage, but there's a balance you have to strike before he reaches his late game and if you don't then there's not much you can do. Like I said i'm only a trash Silver player, but I hope I helped to bring a little more perspective to the situation. Wishing you the best!
: I want my Midlane Water Mage, preferably male because my current championpool is just females and I'd like to add some diversity.
I'd fully support this. Could totally be like Nami's apprentice or some shit.

: What's Everyone's Thoughts On Skarner?
I don't think he's bad by any means, there are just a lot of picks that out-class him. Every once in a while ill face a Skarner and get relatively annoyed by his ult, but he doesnt make nearly as much of an impact as many of the competitive picks.

: So Vayne does broken damage and nobody cant stop her cause shes invisible.
Well first, she literally just got nerfed in this patch, so do some research. Second, your argument is extremely weak and poorly put together. "Nobody cant stop her" is a double negative. "Every patch through whole 2017" just sounds stupid. Honestly, try to have some dignity.

Garen is a fighter, not a tank. Same classification as Yasuo, Fiora, Irelia, Riven and plenty others. I say he fits his own archetype pretty well.

Syndra is getting nerfed next patch though.

$35 get's you 5000 RP exactly, a considerably higher amount than you need for the skin. Also, you don't have to buy the $35 option. I did $20 + $5 which is exactly 3250 RP.

I'm thankful for all the life-long friends League has allowed me to meet. My best friend lives halfway across the country and I've only met him once, but we're just a close as friends who see each other everyday because of League. I guess i'll go with 113.

: Boy it's fun to play against a Veigar.
As a mid main, Veigar players have actually contributed a great deal to improving my reaction time and trading ability. His mechanics are predictable and easily countered, yet extremely punishing if not dealt with correctly. Playing against a Veigar is definitely a learning experience, but just because he can burst you down doesn't mean he's going to be able to.

I'm mid silver, and that's because I deserve to be mid silver. I hate it when people are like "Yeah if I actually tried i'd be in plat."

You're also silver 5 so I don't know why you think you're entitled to give advice. You're actually terrible at the game and you need to stop spreading your useless information to other players.

You're actually terrible at the game and you need to stop spreading your useless information to other players. Never gave him any advice regarding towards the game at all. However, I have extensive experience being part of a team in real life. If you're not willing to adjust the way you do things simply because "it works", then you need a different frame of mind.
: Yasuo's weakness
I play a lot of Yasuo, and I have a few key points on how I like my waves to look. 1. Caster minions are a very important resource. If i'm zoning during one of my power spikes, then having those caster minions alive last are the way I punish if they step too close. 2. If I see the lane get too close to my tower, I instantly W and dash in to clear the wave and reset the lane. Those are some obvious points because a Yasuo player knows not to ever get stuck under tower. And like you said, once you get Shiv it's almost impossible to not push the wave in. When you get to that point, that's a sign that you need to be roaming. Yasuo cannot freeze lane at that point, so his goal should be to push into the enemy tower hard and then roam. Whether to deep ward or gank, it's a necessary part of his play style because he has to push the wave in and if he doesn't he wont reach his power spike nearly fast enough to make a real difference. Getting trapped under the tower is a death sentence for Yasuo's farm and roam potential. The only way I can see it being beneficial at all is if you're setting up for a gank.
: Jhin's W, Captive Audience
Just a heads up that Captive Audience is his E.
: Should I get fiora or wukong
I highly agree with the previous comment. However Wukong does have a slight learning curve and his success is very dependent on his match up. Until you become extremely comfortable with him he may seem under-balanced, but after a while you'll understand the strengths and weaknesses a lot better. Don't get frustrated if he doesn't work for you at first.

Then people might start playing with you. And not as trolly (teemo jg, akali jg and Aurelion Sol supp) im a support main. Aurelion can support. People jungle with teemo and akali all the time if you havent noticed. But it seems that you dont play league much to know.

: Players, what mains do you respect the most or least?
As a guy who mains the most hated champions in the game ( {{champion:245}} {{champion:238}} {{champion:157}} {{champion:7}} ), it's not really fair for me to hate other mains. I'm not very toxic like my stereotype would suggest, I actually rarely talk in chat at all. I just understand how hard it is to play well against my champs so I can't really be angry. I'll argue for years that Zed is a much better champion in the hands of someone with extensive experience, but I understand why a lot of people see him as "easy."
: My problem with the Hextech System.
From what I understand, Riot has said that every time you get a key fragment, your chance to gain another goes down until a set reset point each month where the chance is raised back to it's original value. There's also a system in place that slightly increases your chance to get a key fragment for every win you don't get one, reaching a cap where the system basically is forced to give you a key. Based on that, one key fragment in three weeks is almost statistically impossible unless you lose every game. Alternatively, if you've had disciplinary actions on your account, you may not be able to actually earn any loot whatsoever. However, you said you were gaining chests so I assume that's not the case.
: i get a low priority Q time for going afk after my top lane goes 1 and 10
This post is atrocious. Just because someone else fucked up doesn't mean you get to freely break the rules.
BigIdea (NA)
: Illaoi is not balanced at all
Illaoi has a lot of counter play in her kit. For example, playing against her in lane may suck. A lot. However, she can't just tp bot and destroy because she hasn't set up her tentacle army down there, making her immobile and weak. Often times, she has to flash just to get an ult on more than one person, and any small form of cc stops her from casting it but still puts it on full cd. Yes, she's strong. Yes, she has a ridiculous amount of sustain. But to say she's broken or under-balanced may be just a bias against her on your part.

: Remove these OP Masteries they aren't fun anymore.
You lost because the enemy knew his strength and how to utilize the mastery he chose. Stop demanding stupid things of Riot and learn how to use the masteries to your advantage.

: Riot doesn't really remove champions, that's not how it works. Stop spamming the boards with QQ posts.
I'd also like to point out that the only 3 matches you've played since July 29th, 2015 have been within the last 6 days. All 3 as Udyr (which makes it laughable you're calling Morde OP), and none of them had a Morde in them.

: Riot's Newest Video Is Kind Of Ironic..
While I don't disagree that Riot could release more gameplay tutorials, there are COUNTLESS YouTubers who have channels completely dedicated to educational league content such as Redmercy, Foxdrop, and Jeremy "Gaming Curios". So yes, I agree, but in the meantime new players aren't completely resource-less.

Cindikle (NA)
: Zed is not hard to play. He's hard to play at a level where he is actually toxic. But most people shouldn't have trouble learning how to at least play him enough to win. Just don't expect to outplay a 3v1 dive under your tower and manage a triple kill. Yasou, is a hard to play champion. Lee Sin is another. But mostly because you can screw up anything he does. A side effect of being able to do almost everything.
I always feel really dirty when I refer to myself as a Yasuo main because people see him as a champion you get insta-pentas on. It's just kind of strange that champion only becomes truly toxic to the game when there's a player than can play it to its full capacity. The hardest thing about balancing with numbers is there's no way to nerf a players skill. Someone who truly knows a champion's full potential can work with any numbers, but the kit is where you need to move if you want to set a reasonable cap.
