: 150,000 blue essence
The skin was meant for players with a ton of IP / runes before the BE switch. People had all the champions and still gained IP per match, having 50k+ IP, which got multiplied by 6.5. You aren't really meant to get it now; it's just meant to give a reward for those who have been playing a long time.
: It's still *fairly* easier to use for most people. Landing one spell every 15 seconds is doable on anyone. Is it *easy* on everyone? No. But it's reasonable. And Riot has, in the past, been against free healing - it needs to be gated behind *something*, or have *some* drawback. if Taric can use his Q and avoid the massive mana cost in lane, and do so repeatedly, that's a problem.
*30% lifesteal on every ADC and juggernaut* :)

: I GOT OUT OF BRONZE V FINALLY!!!
Bronze is plagued by smurfs and it's never been worse than now. Good luck, as a fellow bronze I can relate.
: Will we ever get the results? It's fine if not, I just want some finality to this whole thing lol. I was kinda excited for this ^^"
You will when I do the next one. I don't plan to do them every month or 2 though, maybe every 3-4 months.

: PSA: WHAT IT TAKES TO GET S RATINGS
You can get an S- exclusively from cs. I've gone NEGATIVE but still got 9 CS per minute and got an S-. For S and above you'll need a little bit of everything.
: PSA: We need to clear this up, "Toxic" =/= "OP"
{{champion:23}} in my opinion is an example of a toxic, unfun kit. The entire purpose of this champion is to splitpush and just annoy the hell out of the enemy team, constantly leaving him as a force to be reckoned with. His ult means he's also able to 1v1 almost any champion in lane, or anyone that tries to stop his pushing.
: There's plenty of problems that haven't been fixed from years of terrible design decisions that this patch didn't even scratch. Complaints? ___ Damage is still insane. Their design of counters is still unnatural and causing balance problems. The "assassin fantasy" is completely impractical to balance Stat design is massively lopsided towards AD, with many secondary stats being removed from AP & Health primary stats, or being expanded to AD. The existence of "skirmishers" ARAM is longer than a SR match Jungle still massively over rewards aggression Feast or famine is still the extent of the "strategy" left in the game The average CD of a skill is way too low now Sustain doesn't exist as a stat outside of lifesteal (which is somehow still in the game). Dragon buffs being % bonuses create snowballing Towers The complete disregard for the power of controlling fight tempo
All of these things are too big to be fixed in a normal patch. Wait till midseason or s9? Haha, I'm joking. Wait forever.

: What would your dream patch look like?
"Damage has been reduced by 20%, flat. Crit is removed; items give +% total AD instead of crit. Lethality items are nerfed but AD assassins are buffed. Zoe has been deleted. Towers deal % HP damage on top of the (reduced now) flat damage, and dmg scales with game time. All gold is decreased across the board (I like long games)."

And honestly 5 seconds to proc the damage is way too long. 3 max.
Rioter Comments
: Phase Rush has fundamentally failed on every level of its intended design
It's good on {{champion:69}} and sometimes {{champion:103}} maybe. It's not horrible, but could use a tweak.
: Loving new mana items?
I mean, sure, but champions will have so much mana and never run out that they might as well not have a mana bar at all.

It shouldn't. Didn't happen for me last time we remade.
: Low Elo Is Virtually Unplayable Right Now....
Trust me, the support/jg vision buffs won't help as you see all the silver and gold boosted players who have never warded in their life but are still good at their yasuo/zed/zoe shit slide back into bronze. And then we have to deal with them.
KnifeCat (OCE)
: Another PBE patch, and ofcourse nothing has been addressed, once again
Aside from Liandry's and the new orb item that seem a bit too OP, AP items have been decreased in exchange for sustain and mana. I like it since now there's strategy in backing for mid lane; items have cheaper components so you have to decide between backing and getting an item advantage or staying in lane to keep your CS. Although I hope deathcap first item isn't a thing.

Rioter Comments
: Does having lower MMR make you have worse teammates that cant carry you
Was b3 last season, with about 50% WR. This season I have less than 30% WR, b5. Sometimes I do feed and it's my fault but I can say that I would have over 50% WR if I had b3-b2 teammates. I still think that losing too many games in b5 should unrank you and you have to play a ranked promo (and matched against ONLY b5 and people in that ranked promo) just to get into ranked. Because some people in b5 are not suited for that gamemode.
Rioter Comments
: This is the best change Riot has made in years.
Wait onto champs or onto anything?
: It's completely unhealthy. I think the damage should divide among the number of targets. {{item:3087}} **deals 75-750 magic damage on hit to up to 5 targets, divided evenly among the number of targets hit** (increasing the base damage, but balancing it by dividing the enhanced damage among number of targets). It even makes sense thematically: If one person grabs an electric fence they catch the brunt of the shock. If five people hold hands and one of them grabs an electric fence, they distribute the brunt of the shock evenly. Plus on the Gameplay side: it's an OP turn around move: completely clearing a minion wave and smacking you with damage all with one Right Click.
oh HELL no, don't make ADC's single-target assassin bursters. Vayne, Cait, hell - any champion could healthily two-shot people with this.
Azadethe (NA)
: If you're bronze for several seasons it means that you are just as impulsive and destructive to your own play as your compatriots are. Best Advice I can give: Don't ever enter a bush that isn't warded. If it means losing a camp, so what? better than feeding 300g. Get in a habit of only last hitting minions unless you are bot lane (in which case some matchups you really should push, like a {{champion:53}} game, because if you don't, he will gain free Q shots. The more of the game fought near your turret, the less you will get ganked. Katarina is an insane champ. But she is a high learning cap Champ after her rework. You need to learn how to continually chain daggers and throw them at the right times to land where a champ is going rather than behind them. She does shred tanks, but you need to build sustain. I don't suggest Katarina for a yolo Bronze player. If you're going Yolo Assassin, go Akali. She generally has a kit that avoids a lot of cc, and is far cheesier, and with a Hextech has two on board heals. For a Mid, Morgana or Ahri are FAR easier champs to pick up. If vs an AP counter, you can build them tank, and outperform the AP builds. If vs AD, they do well as AP. Self Sustain, good clears, good detection/mobility/cc. And they work well with teams. They generally forgive ganks. Again. Never go into an unwarded bush. if you need to go somewhere, take a 100% safe route. Don't ever presume to know what "safe" paths are without seeing them. And sometimes, it's worth taking the long route rather than trying to ward the short route, because that is how a lot of snowballs start. If your team is prone to Jungle fights in tight corridors, don't join them. Or at least, stay as far out of the trap as possible, throwing nukes on top of the fight, and ensure you have an out in case they die and you need to defend a lane push. Respect other champs. Never risk a fight that you can lose. It's better to afk farm than risk fights like that. Watch Pros on Youtube, like Redmercy, or Pants Are Dragon, Box Box, Anklespankin, and you might gain an appreciation for complicated plays, and understand a bit more about how the game revolves around cutting animation times, orbing, freezing and striking deftly. That alone will help get out of Bronze. It might not be enough to get you out of Silver though, because you probably don't understand enough by watching videos to improve that much. That..... just takes experience.

: I also got placed in bronze 5. I went from b5 to b2 in 3 days playing katarina, leblanc, and hecarim. Heres how u do it. O B J E C TI V ESS! Most bronze players dont understand the importance of infernal dragons. They are amazing and its hard to lose if u secure 2-3 of them. Kills dont win games, kills open opportunitys for objectives. Kill ur laner and tell ur jungler to come herald after u get control wards and ward up the area. Get first tower with that and keep securing objectives Oh yeah and also if u wanna win BAN NASUS

: And that's why you're a ~~bitch~~ not honorable person!
It's knowing when the game is actually lost. If my team is getting along and we are losing i'm not surrendering because we can work well and communicate and bring it back. If my bot lane is flaming, top lane feeding 0-20, and jungle just afk farming and not pinging or talking in chat, we cannot make a comeback. Saves 10-20 minutes of precious time sometimes. But if there's a real chance of coming back i'm not going to surrender.
: Why you should never consider the match to be over until it's actually over, in one image.
Since this probably happens in less than 1% of games I’m still FFing if it’s 20 to 5 at 15 minutes and our team is flaming in chat.

JG, support, and adc can all influence bot lane. Mid can't do much if the enemy bot is fed, not in low ELO. You play midlane midlane is full of characters with a special button called an outplay button. Guess what this special outplay button does. no matter the hp. You instantly burst your opponent. wanna know some characters with this special button? Syndra yasuo annie talon and that is only scratching the top. Unless I go play the most OP champion theres not a chance in winning. You play midlane. You do not know how it feels to do good in a laning phase after your support goes something trolly. So pretty much after 1v2ing all game now you gotta 1v5. In my opinion MIDLANE needs the most nerfs
It’s not that easy. But whatever you want I guess.
: Why if your like me you wont be able to climb out of low elo playing as adc
I disagree. I think there is no way to climb out if you're NOT an adc. Bot lane is where the decision of a win or loss lies. If bot feeds you might as well ff immediately. Bronze doesn't know how to focus adc. Bronze doesn't know how to play safe or come back from a defecit (which you CAN do). Bronze players also have ZERO teamwork and grouping is rare. I'm a hardstuck bronze 3 - 5 btw. I came close to escaping hell but never did. I'll admit I'm by no means a gold/plat player yet, but I can confidently say , as a mid laner, bot lane holds me back with their lack of pings (while I'm roaming bot too, so I usually die because they don't see the enemies coming towards me and don't follow up) and overall just lack of mechanics. Ironic how a right-click to win champion class is the hardest to master. The only lane worse than mid is top. JG, support, and adc can all influence bot lane. Mid can't do much if the enemy bot is fed, not in low ELO.

: Update: 1 and 5 on placements. People don't know how to work as a team, ever. (The last game was my fault a bit, but the other 4 losses were almost completely on bot and their lack of communication, to the point where I'm trying out bot lane to try to climb out of bronze because the game seems to rely on bot.)
BTW I am Bronze 3 last season, I know I am better than the people I am playing with. Yes after a while I get tilted and then stop playing better, but for lane phase I have 20+ CS above everyone else on my team by 10 minutes and I know how to ping mia (it's hard for b5 players to click one button) and roam properly. It's very frustrating to try your hardest and still feel held back or like you can't go anywhere. I think I'll try to find a silver duo and see if that helps.

It is. That's how it's designed.

Went 1/8 as Leona top. This asshole chogath (who I want to just go straight to Riot Support with) kept harassing me to the ends of the earth. Avoided the fucking auto-report by spacing his curses like "fu ck". That also shows how good the instant report system is.

: Why the game doesn't need more Buffs right now, Nerfs are what League needs (Polite Version)
Thank god someone says this. Brand buffs, jinx buffs, ornn defense nerfs. Brand buffs are probably okay. Jinx doesn't need an uncapped AS... here comes the 3 AS item jinx build where you can get 4 attacks per second by autoattacking once and watching them die. Ornn should have gotten damage nerfs, not defense nerfs. Galio has a lot of CC. He's not a big issue because (assuming a tank build) his W and E don't do an absurd amount of damage.
: Why saying Zoe is broken is nonsense.
> Zoe is a champion that punishes people for their poor positioning or map awareness. Because 90% of League players, including me, can miss position and forget about our map. I like how you tried to compensate for your statement by saying "including me". lol Zoe's early game is way too strong because of her E and Q base damage. She gets 67% AP for FREE, REGARDLESS OF ANYTHING, for point-blanking you with a Q. It only gets worse from there, since her max AP ratio is 165% and base damage is a fukin ridiculous 700+ (what?). Her Q would be fine, if a little powerful, on its own. But you know, a 3-second CC ability that you can't even see if it's going through a wall? Oh yeah, and it explodes into a trap. Pretty broken. She gets a free kill if she lands, and a ridiculous zone if she doesn't. Not to mention a 90%, 90 fucking percent, ban rate in some regions at high elo. If she's a champ that punishes poor positioning (a low elo problem), and it's an issue in HIGH ELO? That's not good.
Rioter Comments
: Are we really complaining about Duskblade now? It's balanced, and assassins aren't that strong right now.
Duskblade is probably the most problematic item in the game right now to be honest. AD assassins are very strong right now. Duskblade lets you know if there are wards in any area by just looking at the passive, gives a hell of an execute plus a slow if the autoattack damage wasn't enough.

I was just playing Cass into him and had a very difficult time because he dashed right out of my Q every time I cast it. Was just using E to farm when he kept dashing through all my minions and poking so I couldn't CS properly. Yeah and her ult has a long ass cast time so he can just dash right through me when I use it. How is Cass good against him?
