: What the f*ck is with losers spamming "tryhard"
The last time I was on a team accused of being tryhard I was a Wukong on ARAM that did **not** build full lethality and had over **1400 ping**. Needless to say- I somehow doubt I in any way played like a tryhard. But yes- in some of the temp modes there is indeed a clear difference between people who want to have fun and people who want to win.

Statistical data showing you who sucks. Remember kids, statistics alone tell you nothing. Not really to do with this in particular but I find on the boards in general people seem to think raw statistics are somehow the 100% out to any conversation.
I'm not entirely ready to disagree given Pyke of all things is somehow 3rd to last on that list. Bit surprised Rumble is so high though- I'd have thought the Overheat would massively gate him in URF.
: Counterplay is walk around/avoid it, or let your ranged teamates hit it. Sweeper doesn't disable shrooms or jhin traps in anyway, so why should it disable shacos boxes?
I'm not sure, "Let someone else deal with it" is any sort of sensible counter-play. A team game involves a team that works together- not one person being utterly useless in a scenario and someone else doing all the work.
: they capped his boxes on URF for a reason. Also with what you're saying it sounds like you want them to remove his boxes entirely.
(Wouldn't make me sad if they removed them) Technically what I want is for Oracle and Red Ward to disable them again. Or at least Oracle. Burning a 90/60 second CD is entirely justified in shutting down his traps and it's literally the only way a melee can do anything at all about them.

: You don't get it. Senna is the first attempt at making a true SUPPORT Marksman. One that SHOULD NOT be taken into the ADC role. OR ANY damage focused lane. She gets less chance of wraiths from waves if she kills them meaning she stacks SLOWER if she is CSing. The only role that doesn't CS is Support. She can't Carry a game unless the enemy feeds her something ridiculous like 15 kills in 10 mins. She does not belong in solo lanes or as an ADC. I can KINDA, very big if here, see her in jungle to enable some REALLY scary ganks with her E Stealth ability and I tried her in practice tool solo clearing and she didn't do bad. But she is designed from ground up to fulfill the SUPPORT role as a Main. Ashe is taken in the support role for one of three reasons: Trolling Vision Control Duo Dynamic
Also the very reliable CC and poke

: URF isn't bad this time around, it's the community
> In my personal experience, every single game of URF has been a sweatfest, with little to no fun for both sides (plus toxicity in the mix), with only toxic 0 counterplay champions being picked. I mean not a lot of champions have Counterplay with like 1-3 second CD abilities. That said it's easy to tell tryhards from people just having fun- tryhards pick assassins. Like I picked Volibear yes- there's practically no counterplay available to him. But who in their right mind calls me a tryhard for picking an immobile melee in URF?

: Garen is blatantly the most overpowered/broken champ in the entire game
Probably should let him slide for a week or two to get the full set of data instead of a knee-jerk response. Lord forbid actually waiting to see if the playerbase can adapt to change before hauling out the nerf hammer or buff stick.
: My views on this is mainly quite simple. riot has a design flaw. Assassins are generally seen as high risk, high reward champions. Whose purpose is either burst, dot burst, get in get out play style. Riot's first mistake was adding easy mobility to lol assassins. why was this a mistake? Because it removes the risk factor. There's no longer a high risk when you can easily escape a bad situations using Zed, Leblank, pyke, ekko, fizz, new akali, Quiana, Kassadin. Heck even talon now when he has walls. Notice how less popular are Diana, rengar, kha and eve (tho eve has an easy escape, she has overall less mobility). The next mistake riot made was giving assassins cc. Leblank and talon and kassadin used to have silences. Then riot removed at least that since they noticed cc makes assassins very strong. then they made Ekko.... Pyke... New akali.... Quiana... So, Pyke already has two design flaws. Then they added a 3rd, gray health. The "you can't poke me and you will lose all trades VS me" mechanic. The same reason top Tham was seen as cancer and the reason why most people despite top lane rengar. And then, AND THEN, they decided: well, assassins kill targets, and that means other carries don't get gold, what if, what if!!! We shared the gold, and not split it in two, but double it per kill!!!! So yeh, pyke is an abomination created out of several design flaws. If you want him to be in a decent state, he has to give up two of his absurdities in exchange for power in other areas. Ps: tank pyke would have been absurd if he were allowed to build hp and resistances...
> The next mistake riot made was giving assassins cc. Leblank and talon and kassadin used to have silences. Then riot removed at least that since they noticed cc makes assassins very strong. Leblanc, talon, and Kassadin had their silences removed because for all of them it was a **no-skill ability that couldn't miss**. It wasn't the fact that it was CC it was the fact that it couldn't miss and basically rendered any mage utterly unable to do anything at all if they got into range.

: I have seen this "buff a champion before releasing a legendary skin" for years, and while I understand that Riot is a company and want to earn as much money as posible, this policy crash completely with having a proper game balance. How can you claim that you want to balance the game when you are buffing certain champions to sell more skins and everyone knows it?
> How can you claim that you want to balance the game when you are buffing certain champions to sell more skins and everyone knows it? One thing few people care to acknowledge is one way to find out what's strong about champion X is to buff champion Y in order to see if X is overbearing or X's counters need to be stronger. That's entirely viable. You can also 'buff' a skill to be consistent with the rest of the game and **deliberately** wait to ship it until a skin comes out. Best of both worlds. Step 1: Ashe Q feels like it SHOULD be an AA reset. Because it was. Step 2: Riot decides they'll try giving it back. Step 3: Riot also decides Ashe is getting a new skin. Step 4: Riot holds on step 2 until step 3 is ready. Step 5: Buff and new skin so plenty of people trying her snd getting data flowing.

: How People Feel About Playing as Mordekaiser - Survey Results
I will say there's some... not _flaws_ per say but things I believe worth noting. My favorite ability in Re:Morde is the passive. My least favorite is the W. Keep that in mind. Another thing is that there always WILL be a least favorite. That does not necessarily mean the ability is the mechanically bad- only that it's not as liked as the others. I 'like' all of the abilities but W is the least favorite for me. Keep that in mind. Also it has to be noted that Mordekaiser's kit is tied together- you cannot just judge the W by itself because it is so heavily tied with the passive and other abilities. As such Re:Morde W is not a solo ability compared to say- Teemo W as that in no way interacts with the rest of his kit. Keep that in mind. In addition Well Made does not necessarily mean Personal Enjoyment. As above, I personally enjoy the passive most and W the least. However, I would argue the R is the ability farthest from Well Made given it has the most bugs out of the kit. Keep that in mind. Just some things to remember when looking over the results. I rather emphatically disliked Re:Morde on release. However he's grown on me over time now that I've improved. For context I played Morde before both reworks. I do not, however, see much room in his current kit for a higher skill ceiling. This does not bother me. I like not requiring inhuman reactions or balancing a bunch of variables in my head to do well as Morde. I enjoy Garen for similar reasons. I very much dislike playing Zed for comparison as there's too much to deal with.

Small scale fights feel awesome but in team fights it's just like, why am I even here? I agree - in small skirmishes tanks actually feel tanky (unless vs like vayne/yi/kaisa etc...). But when you have 5 people throwing everything at you - you just don't last.
To be fair if we ever reach a point where 5 people unloading on a single champion still cannot kill it in a decent timeframe I'm more than willing to argue we've gone too far.

There's never been an actually **good** reason for Brand to be mid instead of support except more AP scaling and gold. His kit rewards him best for fighting multiple champions at once so of course he benefits more in a lane with more champions. Passive: AoE explosion W: AoE explosion E: Spreads damage R: Spreads damage Sure he has practically no utility (stun on Q) but his kit favors hitting a lot of targets.

HàrrowR (EUW)
: Why do you even play immobile ADCs
I am admittedly not an ADC main (in fact it's either my worst role or 2nd worst) but I always use immobile ones because it forces me to live in fear. At no point can I think to myself, "I can outplay them, I have mobility, I don't need to worry about someone jumping me." Nope. I'm entirely vindicated in keeping myself safe and not being aggressive. My typical ADCs {{champion:22}} {{champion:51}} {{champion:21}} {{champion:15}} Virtually no escapes and two of them can actively help the team (Ashe with her slows, vision, and stun, Cait with her traps) without actually being GOOD at being an ADC. I'm a Support main- I can carry in the right circumstances but for the most part I prefer helping others carry instead. My ADC choices reflect this.
: The intended users for Aftershock are tanks whose primary job is CC. Resistance values and damage, both scaling with tank stats to give an engaging tank an edge. Practically all of these tanks are melee, the only exception being Thresh who oh so definitely does not need Aftershock to be successful. Unfortunately, they gave it bullshit base values and capped the resistance scaling values, so anyone and their mother who can immobilize a champion gets oodles and noodles and toaster strudels of free tankiness and damage. The ranged mages like Lissandra and Aurelion Sol that benefit from Aftershock already have RoA, Liandry's Torment, Zhonya's, and Banshee's Veil, and should be handled individually if restricting Aftershock to melee affects them at all. Lux support only builds Zhonya's out of any of these, is definitely not in need of buffs, and is dragging down the potential for tanks to benefit from Aftershock.
Lissandra plays very similarly to tanks in that her job (theoretically) is to go in and slow/root/stun targets to get the team-fight going. Swain and Kennen also have the job of going balls-deep into the enemy and using defensive tools to keep themselves alive while doing it. Having items that make you tanky doesn't inherently disqualify you from using a keystone that does the same- that's a silly argument to make and I don't know why you brought it up. Imo a better idea would be to put a range limit on Aftershock- as in the CC'd enemy must be within X range of you in order to proc the benefit similar to Courage of the Colossus or alternatively reduce the values Aftershock gives based on how close the enemy is to you. Tanks won't care because their CC is practically point-blank. "Abusers" like Lux on the other hand will either have to let the enemy get way closer to them if they want the proc or blow their shot early and potentially miss out on it.

> what does it say about the champion team if only 10-20 champions out of 150ish are champions the people want to play while the other 80% are champions "no one wants to play". For one it says that older champions simply didn't have the tech to be as good as modern ones. Look at Pantheon now compared to Pantheon then for the easiest example.
: yeah champs super braindead and honestly still needs nerfs, and when are you gonna make it so ranged champs cant use aftershock?????? the fact that its meta on lux is literally adding a dose of full blown aids to an already cancer champion.
Because Lissandra is almost certainly an intended user for it? Same with Kennen? Maybe Swain? There's plenty of ranged mages that make a lot of sense for using that ability- no sense in punishing them all because Lux uses it too.

Which reads as: To blame Riot To blame Riot again And to blame Riot once more when they inevitably do not listen At some point the community really needs to acknowledge its own impact on the game- namely not playing TT in any large amount. And no, "It hasn't been worked on by Riot" is an excuse, not the sole cause, and conveniently an excuse that puts all the blame on Riot despite the community having plenty of say in whether the mode is **played** in any decent number. It's not, frankly I have my doubts it ever was, and thus far nobody has provided the slightest evidence to prove this is the case. Why should anyone fight for this mode that apparently is so underplayed that Riot has decided to kill it rather than keep it around? Hell- I wouldn't be surprised if keeping around TT is responsible for a number of bugs in the game. Spaghetti code is spaghetti after all. Imagine if, shocking I know, removing TT actually made the game *better*?

Imagine if, rather than attempt to rework them, Riot simply removed old/unpopular champions from the game. There'd be outcry from more than just fans of those retired champs. Some of the outcry would be from fans of other champs, worried that their own favorites might eventually end up on the chopping block. "But this won't happen with any other game modes. They all have healthy playerbases!" Yeah, and so did Treeline back when Dominion died.
I will point out reworking those champions is doing exactly that. Yes you get a replacement but the old kit/champion is effectively removed.

Probably because even at its most buggy and anti-fun ARAM still had loads more players than TT.
: Just wanted to bring attention to the Twisted Treeline removal
I literally only played Twisted Treeline... I wanna say maybe 5 times as in the original 3v3 mode. Once was when literally 6 of us wanted to play and we thought it would be fast (BOY was that wrong, ended up 2v3 because one of our team had to go to class: Trying to 2v3 Mundo, TF, and Kog-Maw as Kha'Zhix and Talon is not easy). And then the other 4 times were a small-scale tournament the gaming club at college hosted and they needed another team to fill out the bracket- so I got stuck with a level 20 player and a girl who had only ever played against bots. Two games in that tournament before being removed- two games in the subsequent tournament in which my team did better but ultimately still lost. **That's it.** I have literally never been tempted to play TT not because it's full of bots (though it reportedly is) not because it might have bugs (though it reportedly does) but because it's not Summoner's Rift. And sorry to say I didn't seem alone in that sentiment years ago. Nobody else who I knew that played League wanted to play TT over Summoner's Rift either. They also only rarely played Dominion but of the two- they played Dominion more because *it was a different mode compared to regular League*. TT is basically "small-scale" League of Legends. It does not change basic gameplay enough to warrant the full interest of a significant portion of the fanbase (like say ARAM or Dominion) nor is it as effective at the gameplay it does use as Summoner's Rift literally has more players and more possibilities of match-ups.

> Now to the Shaco changes we would suggest: >Changing E to magic or reverse adaptive damage Upping the base damage of E slightly Changing box arm time from 2s to 1.5s Upping box's health (AP scaling?) Changing invisibility duration from 1.5s - 4.5s to 3s - 4.5s Increasing the duration in which Shaco can proc his Q damage from 0.25s to 1s Changing the way the execution works on Shaco's E Slightly higher clone explosion range Higher clone explosion damage Change the clone AI Range indicator of max range where clone teleports back to Shaco So... like straight buffs on everything? Literally everything? Go figure ask any champion's mains about a champion and they insist they need buffs... Q = more duration to get bonus damage, longer stealth duration W = detonates faster, lives longer E = literally asking for more damage R = more damage, more range Like I get it- he's weak right now. I respect wanting bugs fixed and your champ not left weak (I played Mordekaiser for years after all) however I would argue he *needs* to be weak because his kit is almost pure cancer and doesn't deserve to be strong in any way because if it was then there's almost literally nothing you're allowed to do about it. Where's the outplay potential for Shaco? Drop a pink so you can see him in his Q? Nope- that's not a thing anymore. Either Oracle or nothing and Oracle STILL doesn't let you interact with him. Wanna defuse a box as melee? Nope- it's going to fear you and there is no amount of outplay on the planet that will let you do so unless you destroy the thing ASAP when he sets it down. Are you going to juke his skillshots? Nope- he doesn't have those. Wanna kill the real Shaco with actual skill and avoid his clone? Nope- he directs the clone right up to you even after death so it explodes, does damage, and CCs you. The outplay potential for a champion should never be- "Just don't go near him or interact with him in any way". Shaco is literally the Yasuo that existed before Yasuo- he's loaded with tons of extra power and is reliant on his user screwing up to outplay. The only reason the community isn't full of Shaco threads with the **exact** same complaints they have against Yasuo is Shaco is weak.

I'd rather they try again to update the kit rather than send it back.
