: Can we have a funny "Bot Coach" mode? xD
Like what that last smash bros had? Thatd be funny.
: Found this thing about a predictive software writing a new Harry Potter chapter
This is so perfect that there's no way the devs didnt comb through tons of wordsalad to find the pages full of innuendos. But it copies the writing style pretty well so clearly they did something right

: Anybody who uses levels as a measure of skill now is retarded. Having an account that's 4 or 5 levels above mine means nothing when I've been playing 2 or 3 years longer. People will find any method to brag and compare and it's so annoying.

Best ive ever seen was someone tab out of the game and spend a solid 5 minutes combing my op.gg, best they ended up finding was a low kill average on my main SUPPORT
: Yeah honor capsules feel really weak right now. We get a slight "boost" in key frags, but I have read those key frags aren't even extra; they are a part of the set amount we are able to receive during a given month. It doesn't feel like a reward, but it's better than nothing at the same time. However passing it off as a reward is what makes it feel weak. It kind of says become honor 4 and then don't give a damn because you'll get honor capsules same as lvl 5 and you have already seen that you will get a ward that matches the color of your honor level as a reward anyway.
Iirc they clarified that an honor capsule counts as just one key frag in the monthly allowance, despite having more frags inside
: I was just thinking earlier that some of the character art looks like it was drawn by 13 year olds, while most of the art looks professionally drawn/painted. Did one of their devs allow their little niece do some of the Sivir portraits?
More like the older stuff had to be crapped out overnight because they needed 3 per 2 weeks plus whatever skins they were releasing. Iirc they started putting more time into it around season 4, and since then the worst offenders have been replaced.

AR URF (NA)
: Do something about zed
The low end of his skillcurve is pretty messed up. A 3 game Zed is tough to deal with, and it takes dozens of games laning against him to be able to deal with him adequately. Combine that with him having the perfect playstyle for facerolling norms/low elo, and have fun playing a squishy if he's on the enemy team. Then if you build right and somehow outplay his REaa oneshot... he escapes effortlessly. So the best case scenario is that he doesn't kill you just for being on the map.
: Let's talk about low Diamond.
They should just add a visible elo ladder at diamond imo
: Firing CertainlyT
I really don't get this Zoe hate. Might be because I've been sticking to norms since she landed, and her "i might burst you because you got hit by a mildly bs skillshot" is still nowhere near as bad as the rest of the norms meta of "im gonna reliably 100-0 you because you have the audacity to exist on the map". As ridiculous as her W is, it'd actually be way worse on any champ with real chase potential or sustained dps. My suspiscion is that Riot had that idea cooking for years, and finally found a kit that wouldn't be completely disgusting with it. If she's unfun to play against then yeah, sure, but I'll take that brand of bs over sooooo many other things. At least in theory you can dodge her stuff and then kill her, unlike certain others who just win by default with no adequate countermeasures.

: Low logic always amazes me
I think people are too obsessed with the immediate moment to risk deviating from what theyre familiar with. Try something new and you might screw it up a couple times before it pays off, that's too much for someone whos too focused on winning every individual game.
Rioter Comments
: I seriously hate lux supports with a passion.
It was a thing long ago, before Vel and reworked Malz existed, and before Brand was enabled by spellthief. Now its mainly just people getting autofilled and not wanting to actually support.
: You'll eventually get M6/M7/an S on a champ if you play them long enough
Ofc youll eventually get lucky a couple times. If you want a measure of proficiency, track your statistics.
: Adaptive Champions, and Why Shaco Should be the First.
The runes are generally good for this now. Imo youre locked into a build path after first back most of the time, but it could be cool to be able to viably switch to an offbuild to deal with one specific threat (kalista getting fed? Go ap to try to pop her)

: Remove champion shards from hextech chests
To be fair, event chests are nearly always like this.
: Actually it's more like: "Oh, you outplayed & beat your laner til he went 0/4/2? Too bad he roamed & we offered him free kills & boost him up to 4/4/2 for the lolz".
Effectively keep lane opponent out of the game. Time comes to group, I do a thing and we kill the other 4 enemies. I recall because low health, confident that my team will go for objectives instead of pointlessly diving... enemy quadra kill.
: I know this has been said a thousand times but Bot lane needs to lose some power
Adcs have their power fantasy mode now. Maybe SR doesnt have to be as well.
: I'm curious how the community would ever expect the lane with a higher percentage of the team in it (ADC and Support) to *not* have a larger impact on the game than any other single lane? Most posters seem to indicate the current amount of influence they have is too high (I don't quite see it myself) but I'm curious why having two strong members should inherently be so weak that they **don't** become a powerful factor in the game.
In an ideal world, bot wouldnt have twice the impact because that's where the majority of autofilling happens, and otherwise twice the chance of one person singlehandedly losing the game. There should be some buffers against bot just snowballing out of control from almost nothing. A strong player can always push past these buffers, a weak one wont necessarily ruin a game in 5 minutes.

Someone in Australia born a man but "identifying" as a woman entered a women's weight lifting competition. Destroying all the naturally born women and taking the gold medals.

Destroying all the naturally born women and taking the gold medals. (The perks of gaining all the male muscle before claiming to transitioning.) People are desperate and pathetic. To claim no one would do such a thing is an ignorant statement. That's an edge case that I'm not sure how tournaments should deal with, but let's not pretend someone would cynically go through all that trouble just for some gold medals. If people who were going to transition anyway also win some competition because of it, that might be a worthwhile conversation to have about how the competitions should be set up, but that's very different from anyone being able to invade any competition because "hurr durr a twitter frog told me the sjws don't think gender is a thing anymore".
: Why I'm against female-only tournaments
Seems pretty silly on face value. If there was some goal to these other than just being a tournament (courting a demographic that doesnt play as much, for example) maybe that's worth discussing but idk.

: Lux and Zoe's physical body are the same age, apparently
I'm like 90% sure this and the bit about her being thousands of years old were quickly added after somebody reminded the design team about an... unfortunate side of the internet.
SadKill (NA)
: Honestly, those of us that have unlocked all of the champions (I just barely unlocked the last champ with four years of consistant playing under my belt, only really buying 1 or 2 champs with RP), probably have enough games to be lvl 300 or above. So... It's not really changing anything, just now you can see it through levels instead of just straight grinding of games.
This. And when I get salty about how long itll take to save up for Zoe or whatever, I remember that if I cared about buying champs I coulda just not bought urfwick and dozens of chromas just now.
: Most of all, she **sounds** absolutely infuriating to play against...or with...or as...
Your tank pointlessly waking someone up with an auto is my main concern with her. Seriously, you ever try to get randos to not constantly attack everything in sight?
Jbels (NA)
: Let's take a minute to realize
Karthus was the first champion not to use the traditional autoattack system. Vayne was the first champion not to use the traditional "counterbuildable" system. Yorick was the first champion not to use the "champion select" system.
: Zoe!
Wreck-it-Ralph was a good movie.
: Unpopular Opinion: Cho'Gath should be able to do a ton of damage with his ult while being tanky
Even if thats accurate, his non-ult base damages are ridiculous in lane imo. Melts things while taking no damage because he's rushing RG. Maybe he should feel like the Evolve monsters, where he starts out kinda weak.
Yenn (NA)
: Solo queue needs to be fixed, skill discrepancies are getting out of hand
Its bad now, yeah. First time I've not bothered to get back to diamond. Pretty sure autofill is a huge part of it, games are mainly decided by someone quickly giving 8 kills to mid or top before I can get bot rolling. Every other season, winning bot by 4 kills and 30 cs would transition into an easy game. Now, I have to keep a Kata off my adc while she's so fed that she can 2v1 through exhaust and a 7 second cc combo. I try early intervention and whoevers feeding Kata just dies again. I try to steamroll bot harder than the feeder, but I just can't match that pace vs a defensive enchanter meta. It wasn't always this bad right? Getting outplayed and losing is one thing, but it seems like people don't know how to not violently feed. Yeah, enemies do it too, but that's not the game I want to sink all these hours into.
: Mecha Rengar Splash
Cant believe it turns into the Catmobile
: Yasuo's ult making him placed outside of turret's range when ulting under enemy tower
Yasuo's balance state is based on riot being terrified of people feeding as him. If they took this away they'd probably buff his laning even more.

Renowned Explorers, the Steins;Gate vn. Those 2 are gonna make me fuse to my hammock before the end. Didnt know there was a monument valley 2, so ty ^.^
Thalía (NA)
: IMO the problem has always been that ADCs do too much damage *to squishy targets*. They need to have the level of damage they have now in order to be able to threaten tanks appropriately, which they do quite well. If there were some way to reduce their overall damage but preserve their damage versus tanks, that seems like it would solve a lot of the issues people have with them. Unfortunately you can't really do that by changing a single item because then that item would just become situational. It kind of needs to be a change to one of the underlying mechanics they rely on. Since nerfing defensive items *and* nerfing ADC items would result in tanks being a lot worse, it seems like the best place to start would be reworking Critical Strike Chance into a stat that still gives strong sustained damage but isn't as randomly bursty.
That "gain AS while focusing one target" keystone could go in this direction, but I doubt the class will be balanced around it, it'll just be even more tank shredding while they burst squishies
DongPan (NA)
: then there must be more item before this could happen else it is useless imo cuz if u can't ban certain item due to immune list then it is a useless ban system
Yeah, the idea I've been toying with is the immune list would just be the items Ornn can upgrade, plus boots. Only issue I can see there is Morello, and there are still some alternatives to it. Not too concerned about Nashors since that's just the equivalent of banning Kayle, and we can already do that. Important point is that you're choosing between an item ban and a champ ban. Unless an item is incredibly broken, it's probably better to ban a champ anyway.

: "You have six days to get a group of 5 together and troll with all melee"
The one upside to the current state of Cho: regardless of teamcomp if you have Cho and they don't, you're fine. Besides, melee botlane usually does fine in norms. Their aggressive style is good vs people who probably aren't on their best champ, and people who aren't putting as much thought into the game as they would in ranked.

: FUTURE MISSIONS LEAKED!
Ngl several of those would be fun to strategize for as a 5. Especially the yasuo one, gotta unplug his wifi and then win the 4v5.
Rioter Comments
: Being able to outplay something 1v1 should not be the golden standard of counterplay
Adding to your point, we often see that people just have no interest in using things that have 1v1 counterplay, as long as alternatives exist. People didn't see the leblanc rework and go "fair gameplay i want to use that champ", they just started using burst mages or certain adcs as pseudo-assassins instead. Then the champs either disappear or worse: get their base stats buffed to the point that anyone can brainlessly faceroll them even while getting "counterplayed" (fiora, yasuo, and zed see this happen from time to time)

Yeah but... have you seen a soloq team recently? Theres no way they ALL think to run, and the ones that dont just end up baiting the others.
: Most people right now :
What i really wanna see is Brand in this mode
: Unpopular Opinion: Enchanters as a class aren't well designed, period
Enchanters are just a brick wall in lane when theyre strong. Theyre happy to not fight you and even when you land a hook, they just statcheck you with no counterplay besides "break into their adcs house and dodge the cursor"
