: Kai'sa every game
i honestly don't think either kaisa or ezreal are overpowered. I just think they are good regardless of what comp you or the enemy team has. And they both scale well.
: Auto fill is fine. TLDR @ bottom
There's a reason players have a harder time with autofill than they do with the old pick order system. With the old pick order system, you generally did not get your main role that often and were forced into playing other roles, therefore **requiring ****players to learn other roles. With the current system, you will only get your non-primary or secondary role maybe 1 out of every 10 games, so there is no reason for players to put time into learning roles. And this is one of the biggest reasons here. With the current system, each player in the lobby is already assigned a designated role, meaning that on your team, generally speaking, everyone should be playing the position they main. In the old system, this almost never happened. You could have 3 top mains, 1 jg main, and 1 mid main on your team in old system, but the other team is just as likely to have players not on their main roles too. What this means, is that in the current system, if you get autofilled, you are forced to play against players who are likely 2-3 times better at the role than you, making for a for a very polarizing experience. Like, have you you ever seen what happens when an autofilled jungler plays against a jungle main? The whole team feels it, because chances are, you are the only player that got autofiled. Even if there are two autofilled players on your team (which usually feels worse than there being just one), there's also no guarantee that the enemy team is autofilled when yours is. This variability in teams in the old system is largely part of what made it easier to climb, as they were more weaknesses for players to exploit. But now in the current system, it's harder, because everyone knows what they are doing in their roles (are supposed to at least). Making it so that the team with the most autofilled players, generally loses by default. Players themselves don't generally complain when they themselves get autofilled, no, they are the loudest when they know they have autofilled players on their team, especially in key roles like jg and bot.

: You don’t go both GLP and Rylai though, that’s slot inefficient and double dipping gold for the same effect.
what are you talking about? even before the changes to mana items, glp and rylai were both core purchases on asol.
duje (EUNE)
: Aurelion sol rework is so bad
See the thing is though, Aurelion needs changes. I love Aurelion Sol; I think that he, Zed, and Jhin, are arguably the most satisfying champions in the game and deliver really well on their thematic. However, Aurelion Sol has way way way too many weaknesses and counters. There are several people that enjoy playing Asol, but he just doesn't get played because he gets crapped on by anything that can get up in his face easily or that constantly interrupt his W. Ex: {{champion:38}} {{champion:105}} {{champion:84}} {{champion:131}} {{champion:31}} {{champion:245}} {{champion:126}} {{champion:90}} {{champion:55}} {{champion:7}} {{champion:238}} {{champion:115}} {{champion:4}} These aren't even all of em. All of his damage is tied to one ability that can be interrupted and go on cd and the champion himself does not build cdr, effectively crippling him in fights when it does go on cd. He has more counters and hard matchups than any champion in the game. And Riot, wants to see their champions succeed, so while yes the changes might feel a little iffy for current asol players, these changes are probably better for the champion and the general population of players.

: LF Tier 2 Mid and Top (plat+)
I'm in game rn so I can't add you, but I am a p2 mid main.
Abandon (OCE)
: And we're back here again... another nerf/change for Aatrox.
I don't think it failed, current trox has a significantly larger playerbase, has more levers of balance, and is probably healthier to deal with when fed in comparison to old aatrox. They probably need to change his ult and I think he'd be perfectly fine.
: New pantheon could use a bit of a buff
i agree. outside of a passive procced q, his damage is very underwhelming. His ult is also so much easier to dodge than the previous one, which i would have been fine with, if they gave it some ad scaling to compensate for how much easier it is to dodge.
: DO NOT BUFF PANTHEON RIOT
i mean from what i've seen, he does have very little damage.
Seenan (NA)
: Hard Reset Ranked preferable? Solo Queue actually solo?
I actually prefer duo queue. I like actually being able to take control of some part of the game in this coinflip meta. I do think; however, that as long as voice comms are not a thing, duo que should not be allowed in d2+.
Eyesack (NA)
: Whats with ezreal and kaisa being in every single game?
neither of them are op, they are just safer and more consistent than every adc sans jinx and caitlyn.
: The game is such a coin flip, it's embarrassing.
: FPS Stutter 9.14
: Riot: Kha'Zix and Lee Sin deserve buffs in 9.15 and Shaco does not.
just to give riot the benefit of the doubt here, they might need more time. Shaco does not need straight up buffs, plus 10 damage on his e is not really going to help him any, no, Shaco needs changes. He needs a minor rework.
: Remember when people said her nerfs were too much? Remember when people called us crazy for saying the nerfs were not enough? Yeah, I remember that.
Pepperidge farm remembers.
: League lagging (fps)
yeah, i've been having random rps issues recently as well.
: The issue is tanks need time to scale, the game is so early focused that they dont get that time, or get put behind so then it takes much longer. its and early game meta atm, scaling comps rarely work
that is very counterintuitive though. If a tank gets to late game, they just get shredded by the massive amounts of penetration and true damage there is in the game.
: So...Ezreal? Short range outside of Q, and no CC of any kind.
i mean sivir is short short though, i dont think people realize she only has 500 auto attack range. Compare that to Ezreal who not only has 550 auto attack range, but also a very low cd low mana cost q with 1k plus range, and an E gives him easy escape that practically has no cd once ez gets some cdr. Sivir has more weaknesses by far, but she has arguably a better late game due to her being a crit adc as well as a waveclear machine. Ezreal just has a much higher skill cap that many players can abuse to circumnavigate his bad early game and reach an absolute monstrous mid game.
: isn't Syndra a burst mage? her "control" (which is utility and crowd control or the ability to force a reposition) is very low, only able to stun a target she manages to hit with her E {{champion:9}} is a bit better example of a control mage because his best features are his crowd control (still has high damage though but I guess its' not burst since it's dps and his E ) of course, nothing is set in stone, {{champion:34}} is a control mage, burst mage and zoning mage all in one, but she compensates for that with a lot of weaknesses/counterplay
yes, she is a burst mage. Control mages are like anivia, orianna, lux (also can be considered artillery), taliyah, and viktor
shofaz (NA)
: Using Riot's Balance Framework on Viktor and Jhin
unfortunately, the reason that riot buffed Jhin, is more than likely because Jhin is an extremely popular champion. Even when the champ has moments of weakness, he still has a great play rate. This would be similar to if all of a sudden ahri's wr dipped to 46-47%. Riot would be quick to react bc there are so many people playing her, ergo her balance effects a larger amount of people than champs like Viktor, the same argument can be made for Jhin. They probably want to adjust viktor, but it'll take em a bit before they do so.
Akaash (NA)
: Yeah sure... if it were 10 minutes no problem. In mid to high Diamond though, it would be closer to an hour. Honestly, riot should go back to the original ranked system with no role selection where instead of being a whiny baby, you just had to learn to play other roles.
> [{quoted}](name=Akaash,realm=NA,application-id=yrc23zHg,discussion-id=cuEXIaQK,comment-id=0001,timestamp=2019-07-15T08:44:09.767+0000) > > Yeah sure... if it were 10 minutes no problem. > > In mid to high Diamond though, it would be closer to an hour. > > > Honestly, riot should go back to the original ranked system with no role selection where instead of being a whiny baby, you just had to learn to play other roles. would it really though? Several players queue up as their primary role/fill in the first place. Plus, support and jg (the two least popular roles), are played a lot more in the higher elos than in the higher elos. The queue time would definitely be longer but I don't think it'd be as high as an hour. And personally, I think autofill is even more of a surefire loss in higher elos.

: > nothing about her really feels op Imagine if every single other mages with line CCs would actually not only stun, but slowly dragged you towards them while ALSO boosting their damage from their other abilities. Would be way too overpowered, right? Then why does an hypermobile AP ranged assassin with safe laning, sustain, huge waveclearing, huge and repetitive burst damage and sickenly low cooldowns with it wouldn't be considered OP? She was fine until Riot forced so much unstable mechanics on her kit solely because of (you've guessed it) raw popularity and the fact she wasn't top tier for some mere weeks.
i think you are highly overestimating ahri's waveclear and damage.
: Imagine the drama if she ever fell to an actual 50% winrate in any elo for longer than a patch! She would be unplayable! /s
But the problem with Ahri, is that nothing about her really feels op. She's just safe. And when I say safe, I don't mean she has a safe laning phase, which for the most part, it's not as safe as like zed/lb, but it is more safe than most other mages, I'm referring to the fact that you can pick ahri into anything mid lane and do fine. You pair that up with a relatively easy kit and you'll get a high win rate.
Kelg (NA)
: Ahri has 52-53% win rate all year, better buff her!
meh, Charm loses some of its catch potential in exchange for a little expression. I am fine with this.
: Ok so when are you actually gonna nerf Xerath?
I think his range and everything is fine. Yes it can be a problematic if you dont have any good backline access but it be like sometimes. The real issue is the hitbox on his abilities, namely his q.
: I don't understand why Kalista is considered toxic
if we have to be honest here, it's because vayne is not that good in pro-play, whereas kalista is a God.

: Teemo can rarely be a lane bully anymore.
i disagree. Teemo is a strong lane bully that scales really well. You beat morde hard, like you hard counter morde actually as long as you know how to properly space, riven is a problem post 6 but always has been, camille is definitely winnable as is the renek matchup if you time your q right. I've never played the aatrox matchup but i imagine that is more of a skill matchup. There are several master/grandmaster teemo one tricks so this shows that he is definitely a champ you can climb with.

: Tarzaned is a high challenger (legit top 10) jungler that has more perma banned accounts than Tyler1. He's known for his extreme mood swings, extreme toxicity, and publically advertising his boosting services. He has a legitimate int list and frequently afks when he gets annoyed. He's a very talented player but has some serious mental issues going on that cause him to completely lose his shit over pretty much nothing. He's kinda like the RatIRL of NA
id say more like Dopa, who has consistently proven himself to be one of the best, if not the best, mids in korea; however, he will never be allowed to play competitively as he openly boosts.

that would be because support is no longer the least picked role. I believe it is now jg.
