: True Damage Counter?
Health counters true damage. The only uncounterable damage is %max hp true damage

He did not ask for true damage. Guess Ritochips wanted something that could deal with the health stacking Tank meta at the time, and this was what they came up with
You realize the counter to true damage is hp stacking?
hoganftw (NA)
: He protested for his bruiser rune and Riot delivered. Jax, his boy, quickly became a highly contested and powerful pick.
Just because riot fucked up didn’t mean hash was wrong. At the time, bruisers needed an actual keystone to use. Most people wanted fervor back, but we got conq instead. Now, we can’t just remove conq without a viable alternative keystone for bruisers
: Riven actually needs to be talked about more, Super strong in Low elo, and High elo.
Now, while riven can be very rewarding, she also has some simple counter play that you can use to beat her. A. Simply knowing her ability cooldowns gives you a huge advantadge, as she is a wet towel without at least 2 abilities available for use. B. Riven has a tendency to push waves, especially if using tiamat. All you need to do is freeze under tower, and farm up, as she is much weaker if she doesn't get snowballing of early kills. C. She has low base hp regen for a melee. Hell, in the top 10 popular top lane champs (according to LeagueOfGraphs for Plat+) the only champs with lower base regen is Yasuo and Aatrox. Just poke her out, and win lane.
Even (NA)
: You know a champion is overpowered when you can almost hit gold while maining them
I mean, people otp'd old urgot to challenger. It didn't mean he was op, just that some people were good with him.
shabingi (NA)
: you cannot provide me with any yi pentakills of him going from literally in the baron pit to their fountain in like 15 seconds while killing their entire team. the point is that maybe rift walking 15 times in a row is not reasonable
14, but thats besides the point. The man had over 4000 mana, Blue buff, baron, presence of mind, and his w. Kassadin has always been a monster if he had his items and was level 16. That's also without mentioning his 9 kills, 200 cs, or the fact that kass was level 16, or how neeko was level 12, aatrox was 14, and the rest of the enemy team was level 13.
: It is a small buff. The cd on her Q is already substantially low and its not like you want to be invis more than you want to be autoing, you can't do both at once. it's literally just giving her the option to restealth a second faster if she wants.
I don't think you understand how powerful being able to reposition without the risk of taking damage is.
: Keep in mind that each individual champion also has their own unique cooldown. Someone like Quinn could have their ultimate taken every 30 seconds. But Ryze could take 4 minutes.
Still though, that means you could use both a malphite ult, and amumu ult by yourself in the same teamfight.
BradNo (NA)
: Do you think people will listen to you? No. People will never listen to you unless you are carrying. If the 12 3 yasuo is carrying and you are a 2 5 ornn, he won't give a rats ass what you have to say.
Do you think flaming will make your point go across any better? As they say, being polite costs nothing, but can mean everything.
BradNo (NA)
: So, let your teammates make bad decisions because they will never listen to you if you're low elo. Okay. I guess I will stop flaming the 12 1 Yasuo for split pushing and dying and congratulate him for being 12 1 so I can reap the honors from him and my teammates. While I am praising the Yasuo (sarcastically) I can use DST to get him to split push better.
Uh, theres a difference between flame, and constructive criticism. You could say "Hey you fuck, stop fucking feeding the enemy team!" Or, you could say "Hey man, could you play a bit safer? We don't wanna throw our lead." You still get the point across, and you avoid being the asshole.
: gotta nerf enchanters though, gotta take a giant shit on shields!
I mean, enchanters were a malignant tumor. They easily out preformed all competition. They had enough shields and cc that a good enchanter could force their adc to win lane, and by extension, the game. A meta where adcs are unkillable is just as bad as a meta where they get blown up instantly.
: I main Marksman. How should I deal with this guy getting to me? "Just CC him." {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}
Marksmen aren't supposed to be dealing with people getting on top of them. They are supposed to implode if someone gets near them. Otherwise, whats the point of having different roles if marksmen can both prevent people from getting on them, as well as blowing up anyone who gets near them
: cuz interacting with someone about gameplay as a rioter here is just asking for a shitstorm.

Ok, but you don’t make it go away by pretending it doesnt exist
: This community does not understand how conqueror works
Your math is off. If this is the way it worked, it would have no effect except a cosmetic one. It calculates premitigation damage, doing 20% of that as true damage, while the rest is properly mitigated
: True damage... is true damage. No build, runes, character, or strategy will change that. Your previous comment was akin to: People die when they are killed. amounts of stupid.
Damage is countered by armor True damage is countered by hp. the only damage not countered by anything is %max hp true damage
: Because assassins tend to become less useful the higher the rank, and because Yasuo doesn't have Riven's skill ceiling.
Uh, no. It's because yasuo isn't as consistent as riven is in his matchups. Some are laughably easy, while some are just downright tortuous. And that isn't accounting for how easy it is to gank yasuo in comparison to riven. To be completely honest, he just has more counterplay than her. Not saying she is op, just saying theres more you can do to abuse yasuo, than there is that you can do to riven
: Why Wits End of all items lol?
It’s cheap, it gives a ton of attackspeed, and has on hit damage. It’s already being picked up as a first item by yasuos when facing ap heavy comp
: I'm totally down for that.
After which they buff the ever living shit out of his base damage to compensate, meaning he will just be an all around good champ at all stages
: It just got me thinking, if they go with the 5k IE, Yasuo basically gets 100% Crit Chance with one item.
thing is, the build path is pretty shitty, and you need ass loads of att spd early to cap q cd asap. Only thing 5k ie will do is move yasuo away from pd, and more towards rushing wits end more often
LordZeds (EUW)
: i think its silly that he can go full bruiser and only have 2 items to get 100% crit
hmm, attspd boots, pd + ie. But yeah, full bruiser m8
: Trust me, if the enemy blindpicks Yasuo - either mid or top then swap lanes so you can 1 v 1 the Yasuo and lock in Nasus, he will regret the day CertainlyT created the Wind Samurai, and take ignite so you always decimate him TL;DR {{champion:75}} {{summoner:4}} {{summoner:14}} VS {{champion:157}}
As a yasuo main, it’s good advice against non yasuo mains. People who understand him will abuse the shit out of Nadia pre 6, and even then, can still win fights.
: He has AA's. He Builds around 350-400 AD like any other full AD melee champ does. His passive gives him 200% AD all the time. We all know how we love Jhin running 800 AD well Yasuo runs that all the time AND builds Attack speed. By making only his Abilities crit it tones down his oppressiveness. He would HAVE to hit his Q's. Actual skill would be required.
Since when does he get 350-400 ad?
GreyfellD (EUW)
: Yasuo - The point when League went downhill
It’s kinda hard to take you seriously when you compare kassadin r, an aoe nuke that can do over 1k damage on a 1 sec cd to yasuo e, an ability that does about 100 damage or less on its own, that is also only works on enemy units and has an on target cd. I get you don’t like yasuo, but pick better analogies if you want people to take you seriously

or just play him a few times and link the footage. Even if you haven't played him in a while, if hes easy, it shouldn't be hard to do well
: I always get 50k mastery points on a champ before complaining they are op. for example yasuo, i said the guy requires 0 skill, got 80k on him and i was absolutely right, broken champ.
Please then, link some of your gameplay of yasuo so we can see how easy he is for you to play.
: Neeko's abilities and how she applies damage are perfectly fine. If she needs any changes, it's her numbers. She simply does too much damage. Her second and third hits of Q should do more and her first Q should do less. I think her ult is fine, she's a mage and if she's getting that close to ult someone she's probably going to die afterwards. Without flash, it's hard to have any impact with it especially early in the game. If her ult was stoppable, then it would be useless. If there are any changes to her ult, she should have the damage ramp up while channeling/moving and then be able to activate it again to apply the cc/shield. This makes her do way less burst damage but that probably isnt needed if her Q and E dmg is reduced.
I mean, she can zhonyas during ult, and because of her ratios, she can afford lower ap items like protobelt to get in just that little bit faster.
: It lasted all of a couple weeks. It was "too hard." I thought it was fun, and he could decimate if fed, but he was feast or famine like Rengar.
You sure this was live and not pbe? Cuz I’ve been playing yasuo since he camera out, and there’s was never a time where you couldn’t auto. He’s definitely different, but honestly, he is much weaker than he was on release.
: How about they revert Yasuo to his original state, that everyone said was "too hard?" He couldn't auto-attack, he relied on Qs.
Uhh what? I've never heard of this original state.
: top 3 mid picks... #2 leblanc is 4 neeko is 5 top 3 are irelia, zed and yasuo, at least by popularity the master yasuo players have some insane win-rates on him as well
Yeah, and those winrates need insane amount of play time to achieve
Pika Fox (NA)
: Imagine an ADC not being out of position for once so they dont die to a champion and let their front line front line!
It's almost as if irelia can jump down a lane before an adc can move.
: You're points are meaningless. Yasuo's kit is unfun to play against or with and that is why people ban him. Also, player's who main yasuo very often have a bad mindset while playing him and adds to the factor to ban the champion. So if banning yasuo stops from making your game LESS fun that it **is** a good ban.
I don't think you understand the purpose of bans. In ranked, the purpose is to get rid of champs that are hard to deal with, who can easily fuck over your team. If banning for annoyance was a good ban, you'd see more teemo bans that anything else
Rìveń (EUNE)
: I would argue that, yes, PD is perhaps one of the bigger problems here. I've tended to see an increased influx of distaste towards Yasuo ever since the rework of that one item and the new rune system. Of course this was always the case with Yasuo, once hated by the community, always hated by the community, after all, he has always been Yasuo. It's just that in today's League, there's a lot more in terms of runes/masteries and items for him to abuse than there was, say, 4 years ago. Back then he'd just burst you with his shiv which was practically a 100% must buy first item every single game, follow up into IE, LS items, etc. Perhaps a GA for tankiness in the late game. Nowadays, you've got all these fancy life saving anti-burst masteries, PD dramatically decreasing damage taken in duels, which stacks with Tabi's... Well, you get the deal.
Good yasuos don't use tabi, as greaves is much better so you can cap your q as early as possible
Zardo (NA)
: Yasuo is one of the reasons I can't bring myself to queue for mid lane anymore. It's not fun having to be forced to never be able to win lane against him because you dared to first pick someone like lux. It's not fun to be resigned to be shoved in and have 0 agency over the midgame while yasuo is allowed to either sit mid and continue to shove you in or roam. And you can't contest his push-no, if you do that you're just going to get all in-ed through your minions and slaughtered unless you're playing a counterpick.
Considering lux is one of the better mage matchups against him, I don't know why you are complaining. You win lane by poking him out with e. And all you need to do is just freeze the wave outside your tower and farm. Ping his roams and you basically win lane, as if he doesn't get kills, he is behind.

It should be whoever is the strongest on their team, which should be based on who actually played well to that point, not just on the champ they chose. THe fact that Yasuo has to be focused even when he put behind is lame, and with the current mechanics, it is far too easy for players put behind to catch up (reward gold....)
He is a carry, maybe even a hyper carry. They will always be the most dangerous person on the enemy team, as if you let them get gold, they will destroy you. You don't let nasus stack in a side lane and then be surprised when hes oneshotting you.
: Rumble? Deleting people? Before they can react? :/ Y'know half his kit is DOT? He has a single damage spell that is burst, even then it doesn't do much. The whole point of his kit is that he needs his team to make enemies sit still so he maximizes damage
Since we are on the boards, we have to assume rumble is full build against level 1 champs with no items
: lol no. maybe 20 reports but ye
It really does only take 1 report. The thing is, unless is something insanely serious, it will take several games of bad behavior for someone to be banned
: The Problem with New Champions and the people that want to play it!
All it takes is 1 report for the system to review. My suggestion is to play it out, and just report them for being toxic after
YoRHa 9S (OCE)
: Applies onhit to the first target hit, plus AoE being reduced healing means hitting three minions with 1 Q gets the same healing from one minion if it were a single target ability, not a big deal. Plus it's yasuo, he'll benefit from the stupid tankiness deaths dance gives.
You almost never buy it though, because hp is much better than the dd passive.

First, no name shaming. Second, some people just have shitty personalities. Just ignore em, and move on. As long as you yourself aren't consistently toxic, or hard inting (as in running it down mid), you won't be banned.

: TEEN Content is generally suitable for ages 13 and up. May contain violence, suggestive themes, crude humor, minimal blood, simulated gambling and/or infrequent use of strong language. i would hear this stuff in middle school hallways. so you say that calling peoplle stupid, bad and idoits. is grounds for permanent ban? and as for the eat dicks. dicks is a weird word as it can mean many things. a person, a thing, a place.
It's not the language, its the intent behind it. I constantly swear when typing in game, but i don't direct it at my teammates. You weren't using constructive criticism, but rather just took your frustration out on your team.

You do realize that SJW by definition (albeit from Urban Dictionary and Wikipedia) aren't actually fighting for anything, but instead attach themselves to progressive issues/movements in order to have a sense of moral superiority and to have a soapbox from which they can judge the world? Just saying, you really don't want to label yourself as a SJW. It shouldn't be a point of pride being someone fighting for issues for disingenuous reasons.

If it is, then lets nerf pantheon for his only weakness being late game, as his early game is too good in a game where late game doesn't exist. How is that not valid. :/ if his weakness isn’t exploitable because games never make it that far then his one weakness isn’t actually a weakness anymore it’s irrelevant.
Because it's not an issue with him in particular, but rather with the current pacing of the game. If theres and item thats good on multiple champs, you don't nerf the champs, you nerf the item. Not to mention, due to his high skill cap, his winrate is extremely sensitive to any change that affects him. E.G. A while back, riot unintentionally nerfed his flow generation so it took around twice as long for him to gain a shield. That patch, he dropped about 3-4% simply due to that minor change.
: Not only that, his abilities are free. No mana to spend or have to waste until he's OOM. Yasuo is one of the broken champions that can spam abilities and never worry about Mana running out. THis game is so broken on so many levels.
Then go play something else, if the game is so absolutely broken for you. That, or maybe stop using hyperboles so that your comments don't sound like the ranting of a lunatic
