will you add any visuals that can make it clear on how much MR/Armor somebody has so it's a little bit clearer how tanky they are?
: He is rapey though... Rapey connotations can have symbolic reasonings, as they do here. Again, I haven't been following the comics but Sylas's role in them is likely intended to be a destroyer or catalyst for the destruction of Lux's innocence, which means a rapey vibe for Sylas is warranted. Rape is usually considered a destructive catalyst for ruining a character's(particularly female) innocence in literature. He's metaphorically raping Lux's innocence. Which is bad. They aren't sugar coating it; whatever he is doing to her mentally and emotionally is *bad*.
that's true but you could've gone for a similar or basically the same effect without making him rapey

I'm not reading these comics(I don't give a shit about Lux) but I'm 90% certain that Sylas is a villain character. He's character pushed to villainy due to circumstances and wrong doing against him but he's still a villain. Why shouldn't he look controlling and "rapey" over a character he is intended to control and manipulate and destroy the innocence of? I think the cover, given the connotations, is fine. It would be different if he was intended to be a love interest or friend; it would be concerning. I'm not saying it's not the point, lol.
I think going for the look "control and manipulate" is fine but he can still have that look without looking rapey.

: New champions reveals feel incredibly underwhelming because of the new reveal pages
Went from inspired formatting like Aurelion Sol's reveal to a more professional and simplistic reveal page formatting like Sylas, Akali, etc and now to an incredibly simplistic and under whelming formatting that is Qiyana.

: Blitz is still a potential candidate for an Ezreal style update. Nothing committed to beyond that though at present. Nexus Blitz play rate dropped off real hard once the missions for it ended. We're assessing what to do as a result, had been hoping its baseline appeal would stay higher. Overall it dropped down to a pretty similar play rate to its first run.
Nexus Blitz is fun and all and I really liked it but after the missions I felt kind of meh with it. Game mode is still good.

Riot I have a proposition hold off on removing the healing on Akali Q until you see where she sits after invisibility in shroud under turrets is removed. Just to be safe we wouldn't want you to over do it all at once.
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: January 30
Akali doesn't get much healing in the laning phase due to the fact her healing doesn't really come online until she hits lv 9 and has all her points in her Q. Until that point Akali only heals a minimal amount and if mages are really having trouble poking out akali which I would be surprised if it was true then I think a nerf to her base MR would be better so that when you are poking her those pokes will be more meaningful. I like how the healing from Akali Q is more versatile and gives a little bit of comfort when you're facing someone who actually knows how to abuse her. I would even be more ok with nerfing her heal and lowering her MR more then full on removing it.
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: January 25
I'm alright with letting turrets target her under turret it just means I have to change how I go about getting kills and forces me to perform her combos better so alright change over all. ANYONE COMPLAINING ABOUT HER SUSTAIN IS MONKEY Her sustain pre lv 9 is next to non and it's not until she gets that she can't heal for very much. You can still VERY much trade against her pre lv 9 so her sustain isn't that high at all until mid to late game. If akali wants to set up a kill she wants to let the wave push to her but if she's non stop needing to Q the wave to heal because someone actually knows how to abuse her she'll never get a kill until mid to late game.

: I'm a mid laner so I don't have much say in what changes should be made about adc but when ever I'm auto filled adc I have frustrations to have there isn't a whole lot of variety in what I can build without losing a lot in other area's. You have a ton of options for what you want to build as a control mage; If you need a little bit more tankieness you can build ROA, Ryalize, Liandrys, Morolelinomicon, etc basically anything that gives HP and with adc on live you can either build Maw, Quick Silver, black clever?, & Wit's End(which I almost never see). Compared to how many options adc can build to a control mage it feels really restricting. I think the current items definitely need looked at but we should also look to add more items.
Just look at how many items give AP vs how many give CRT.

: 1 Problem I see with Sylas already
alright I see a lot of points and can imagine facing it a bit better now so I guess so long as you don't play point and click it should be fine =)
: And the rest of his kit is different from yours. So... win via using that better than he uses his. Do you see a garen needing to aim his ult? Or darius? No. If you lose the hp battle and get in execute range before he does, then he deserves to kill you. You don't like it? Go play jayce or elise vs him then. Cuz what's he going to do with a transform ult? Or udyr or nidalee for that matter.
Garen is brain dead ult but Darius at least needs to get 5 bleed stacks so it's more then point and click it takes set up

I like there being more MR items and it should weaken mages a bit but I still there there could be more variety because it feels pretty restricting with onlh having the optians that are currently available so I think there should be more new items instead changing current ones (not that the current ones don't need to be changed).
Aadion (NA)
: The poacher's dirk removal leaves me pretty salty tbh. I love that item. It's a snowball item with a great risk/reward (Possibility of dying during invade, free 600 gold upon completion.) If you don't want new players to buy it just don't put it in the recommended items sections for builds because that's all new players look at. I remember when duskblade was broken I would buy it first item on pre-rework eve, climbed to Plat 1 with that, and now I'm diamond and still buy it most of my shaco/blue kayn games. RITO I WANT ITEM OPTIONS
Literally the patch I was gonna ask my jg friends to see how it runs on Kindred R.I.P I REALLY don't like the removal of content especially when you look at Ohmwrecker which it pains me to see items that just pass by peoples eyes like this being removed. Just because it's not used or is meta doesn't mean you can find ways to build it. By the way I've liked building Ohmwrecker on sup when they buffed turret dmg to champions so anyone who wants to dive turret but gets one shot by turret have an easier time with that. Ohmwrecker isn't an every game item like you got a full poke comp then it's probably not the best choice. I think small items like this are sometimes hidden gems that can be really good in some situations. I think the removal of this item is kind of hypocritical of riot since they don't explain the basics of what's meta like what's considered to belong in top lane, bot, mid, etc. If it's not meta then we shouldn't have it because it can bait new players well if that's the case you might as well only let players build what's meta because it's for the new players. I really don't like any content of any kind being removed so instead couldn't we just buff the item instead of removing since it's so off meta that it's a noob trap then why can't we change it to make it meta? If it's outdated it should be reworked like what we're doing with our champions so we don't unnecessarily remove content from the game. Did you even play test it to check if it was REALLY a noob trap item I mean just think about it no one has built it in forever so how do we know it's bad?
: Patch 8.23 notes
Riot just pulled a classic NA and tunneled visioned on the outer turrets and didn't consider how the minion changes would effect inner turrets.
: Preseason Dev Update Number 3!
In my experience on the PBE the towers fall at like 8 min and the enemy's get so far ahead that you just lose but the first tower to go was almost always bot lanes so maybe giving bot lanes turret a buff might fix this a little?
Pentamon (NA)
: Essentially whenever they do a major rework to a champ, they sometimes implement a "crutch" that executes a minion if you auto attack it within, I believe, 4 hp. This allows players who main the champ to get used to the new animation and damage of their champion.
thx that explains why my cs dropped a bit but it's nothing major. 3 or 5 games and it should average out.
: Patch 8.22 notes
I'm not aware of Akali's "Cheater Cheater" mechanic if anyone knows would you be so kind to enlighten me on what it is?
: What do you mean now? The only way anybody ever builds him is lethality
I actually ran mid Pyke for a while where I took Ghost, aftershock, and started E first. I held a 75% winrate with it and the strategy was to shove the first wave as hard as possible then pop ghost and run it to top. I always got a flash or 1st blood every single time except for one and even if they flashed so long as 1 minion dies while you're there instantly max Q and Madlife the guy. I built a semi bruiser build on Pyke that I'd say leaned more tank but with his ability's scaling lethality now I'm probably going to need to change some things to this build to make it work. I should clarify that this was during my time in Bronze before I got a teacher to teach me Irelia and how to climb out with her. Currently working on Akali now. If you want more details then reply to them to know and the only reason I'm not already saying them is because I don't know if anyone would care to know more about how I run Pyke.

if you ever played old Akali you would see she lost like 3/4 of her sustain it used to be let me Q and gun blade at 5% hp great I'm full hp now. It's why even if you did feed as her once you hit that gun blade you can still be useful and bursty af

: You do realize on full build he can 100% execute any adc in the game, without help? His full build has a 4.4 sec cooldown on Q, 6 Second W that lasts 5 Seconds, and doubles his move speed, and stun decent damage E? If he hits an adc with E, his R at full build will 100% Execute them. There is no life steal mitigation, shields. It's like an Urgot Ult. Only things like Tryn's ult will prevent it. 3 Infernals + {{item:3071}} {{item:3147}} {{item:3022}} {{item:3812}} {{item:3508}} {{item:3158}} = 660 AD. On his ult's scaling, that's an execute to any champ that falls below 1544 HP , and champs around him will also take 1544 damage, and his ult resets, and allows him to kill them too. Even if they run, he has 20 seconds to catch up and kill them, and his W at that AD adds +106% Move speed and is active 5 of 6 seconds. He can get 690 AD with {{item:2140}} His kit is not a Blitz/Thresh. He can actually kill, and his Hook has a MUCH lower cooldown than either of them (4.4 Sec Hook at level 5) His stealth is better than {{champion:28}} His Ult is better than {{champion:122}} , {{champion:28}}, {{champion:6}} His Q is better and more versatile than {{champion:53}} {{champion:427}} {{champion:412}} and can also be used as a farming tool. His E is about the only "common" skill. He's overloaded in exchange for the ability to gain HP.
