: Why Runes Reforged should be reverted to the Season 1-4 Runes+Masteries system
Except people had problems with the old system as well, and not just that runes had to be bought. How would you deal with the complaints people had with the old system and that directly led to Riot changing it?
JPlayah (NA)
: New support items are literally institutionalized poverty
At the same time... I can't help but wonder if this is Riot's attempt to deal with all the non supports plaguing bot lane. Can't say I like the scorch and burn tactic seeing how I'm a support player getting incinerated but perhaps it would be worth it if it got mages and assassins out of there.

It's not insulting, and it just shows well, many things, none of which are good on your side.
I don't even understand it from a retribution angle when it's been Gen Xers that have been talking the most crap about Millennials.
: A part of the issue is that actual supports, aka enchanters and wardens are so weak (by that i mean the champions specifically) you can just pick anything else and still manage better with the same restrictions. The other part is that by making supps rely on item actives and specific effects to be relevant, ANYONE can buy those items and work. So of their champion kits are inherently stronger, they're automatically stronger in general. The solution is to give supports equal income (or close enough) to the rest of the team, and make sure their KITS are strong supporting kits which can scale with normal tank/ap/ad items. Kits with built-in vision, decent healing, debuff protections, ally damage-reducing effects and the likes.
I think the solution is to make a utility stat. If they make a stat that scales utility (Not AP) and put it on support items. Then they can balance supports around having good utility scalings and it would allow them to nerf mages that are not supposed to go bot by nerfing a scaling that is less important for them in a solo lane.

: Supports need a new way of generating gold
Why would they need a new way to earn gold when they're already killing the enemy ADC all the time? Oh I'm sorry, you said support not, "Support but really an assassin/mage".

It's already bad with {{champion:12}} and {{champion:201}} win-rate. I truly fear for tanks supports next season. hook supports have been really strong for a while because of the amount of damage you take if you get cc'd once in lane. In the last 2 seasons at least when you get hit by any of their abilities youre chunked for over half your hp, or just dead.
This has always been the case with them.

This is the real problem and why I haven't played for a long time. The people that FORCE you to play out a lost game or take a hit because they can't get past the denial stage.

: Future Stories
Nami, always love me some Nami stories. But I'd also like to see more yordle focused stories, specifically interaction between yordles. I want to see Heimerdinger and Ziggs butt heads over their very different ideas of science, Lulu and Veigar cause some mischief, or Tristana and Corki get into a contest over who can shoot better. We have all these yordles all over the world interacting with humans all the time, I want to see more stuff between yordles.
: Thank you :D Never played that one, what's it about?
A fairly basic paint game that also came with a music making program, was for the SNES and was the only game on it to use the mouse peripheral. Here's an example of what people could and still make with it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hil1F2T19GY

Have Vel be some kind of Daft Punk kind of character that wears a giant helmet that is Vel'Koz and then have an unrigged human body hanging under it. Could have it so while playing he just acts like Vel'Koz does but then when you recall the body could pull out some synth equipment and jam out on it or something.
Saezio (EUNE)
: Except assassins were kinda useless back then. So underpowered compared to mages/tanks/marksmen. Their ceiling was hella low.
: Any chance to get somes model of Wild Rift on PC ?
I don't see why Nami is used as an example here. Compared to the others she's almost 1:1 identical.
: I agree with either this or adding some potential way for a team to influence the final terrain change. Champions interact with terrain in unique ways and certain team comps value certain terrain higher than others. Please don't leave it to a dice roll. Give agency.
I much prefer having champions be able to influence the dragon's element in some way rather than having people beg for you to play a certain champ because X elemental drake will spawn that game.
: This should be Crabgot's Dance
They really need to just do a big dance animation pass on all the champions. Zilean also desperately needs his update to the Can't Killean the Zilean dance.

: Way to go your S10 changes take everything we hate and make it even worse.
Anyone else initially read this as "$10 changes" and wonder what the heck the OP was talking about?
SirPurrr (NA)
: These are interesting map changes and probably good for the game. However, it will become even more difficult to play a low mobility champion. More bushes = less vision and more deaths even when trying to enter your own jungle. There have to be some "safe paths" so you don't feel like you're forced to gamble almost regardless of where you walk.
Less vision can also be better for immobile champs because they have time to get close to someone before they are noticed. Someone with mobility cares less about bushes than immobile champs because they can close the gap instead of having to hide.
: I think he's straight up amazing. My only concern is the overadbundance of mechanical elements, I wouldn't like for him to be identified as a "robot" as frist glance.
The metal parts are probably a replacement for his previous wooden skeleton. Someone else mentioned he could be related to Zaun in some way so maybe using scrap metal for the frame of a scarecrow is what people from that area do. It also makes him more unique from the typical spooky scarecrow.
: Unpopular opinion but it needs to be heard
Another "Oh this is going to be so unpopular and I'm going to get hate but actually I'm just fishing for upvotes and comments by making a popular statement." thread.
: From what I can understand of the combination between Lucian and Thresh's bios: Lucian broke the lantern. But rather than sending Senna to eternal rest, she just... reappeared. Yay, happy together again! However, she's a Black Mist zombie to some extent, and Lucian isn't feeling great about that. Thresh is still around, and Lucian still wants to get rid of him once and for all. The end of his bio states that he decided to give the couple this insignificant victory because he's intrigued that someone managed to escape his clutches.
Thresh probably also thinks the torture would be that much sweeter if Senna gets a taste of freedom before he traps her again.
Nithke (EUW)
: The thing is that Nasus is different, he's not strong on his own, the reason why Nasus is annoying is the reason why i completely stopped playing Nasus, my main, because you totally depend on your jungler. You get shit on so hard past-6 that unless you get ganks you get outscaled, so basically, playing Nasus, If your jungler camps top, before lvl 6 you won the game, if he doesn't you lost. Garen is different because his stupid regen and damage makes him some kind of standalone champ that can do well with or without jgl help. Basically he's not on the weak side. And for Nasus I hate him in this current meta where you need to spam ping ur jungler for help or literally stop taking waves that are further than your turret range (and even that is usually not enough, when elise decides to tower dive level 3, great fun 10/10 wud do it again)
No, the reason people hate Nasus is because if you're lanning against him then you are on literal dog sitting duty and have to be in charge of dealing with him for the whole game unless you can destroy him in lanning phase to the point that he is useless.

: > Patch 9.19 is without a doubt one of the worst, most balance upsetting patches Riot has released to date. Benifitg nobody but those who main the overbuffed champions and clearly dictating what Riot want to be played in the Worlds tournamet. Never have i seen such a collection of unnecessary buffs and nerfs Dude what? Have you only been playing for 6 months or something? They do this literally every year on the worlds patch. This year's world patch is actually ***extremely*** mild compare to practically every single other one. I mean they only managed to break one champ really. Meanwhile in the past they dropped an entire class update on the worlds patch one year lol. This patch is nothing compared to every preseason patch (which never gets fixed before the season starts btw), all the class updates, and most worlds patches before it
This is why I can't take complaint threads seriously anymore. The amount of people complaining about things as if the sky is falling when I remember patches and changes that could completely flip the entire meta and they're complaining about small number buffs. Freaking kids today, get off my lawn.

I've never heard something so ridiculous. Juggernaut patch anyone? This is mostly a bunch of number buffs across a lot of champions and you say it's the worst compared to all the dumb shit we've had in the past?

Are we really at the point where people actually look back on Zyra's passive as something good?

If you showed this to someone I doubt they'd even be able to tell she's a mermaid.

It doesn't look like Nami. If you just showed someone the splash with zero context then they probably wouldn't even know she's a mermaid.

I always feel weaker with more elaborate skins because it always feels like the enemy team notices me more. Whenever I'm using a base skin or a less fancy one I feel like I get to do what I need to without as much focus on me from the enemy team.
