: You can tell when nintendo ruins a good thing
Why do people want Litten to remain quadruped? We literally JUST got a quadrupedal Fire-type cat last gen in Pyroar.
: Donald Trump is going to be president without pay
I remember reading somewhere that Trump, in terms of net worth, is richer than the previous 44 presidents combined. I think he can handle not taking the pay for this job.
Odenmaru (NA)
: Litten/Torracat/Inceniroar's grown on me.
In terms of competitive, Incineroar's the only one that might actually be useful at all. It has better defenses than Arcanine, who's already rather bulky to begin with, and it has Intimidate for a hidden ability. It also gets Fake Out, Will-o-Wisp, and great coverage moves. Of course, this requires actually getting hidden ability starters, and we don't know how/when they'll be available yet... Primarina, on the other hand, got obsoleted in its very own generation by Tapu Fini, who's a far better Water/Fairy type.

But Gohan beat Perfect Cell up so bad he puked out Android 18, and he was only regular Super saiyan.

Gohan as a regular SS wasn't doing anything significant against Cell, due to a combination of his unwillingness to fight and the training with Goku dulling the usual battle fervor that the SS transformation causes. It was only after Cell smashed 16's head and Gohan ascended to SS2 that he actually started to kick Cell's ass.
: What was the point of changing arm pen to lethality?
Lethality's not that hard to understand. It's basically flat armor pen that scales with your target's level. _Lethality × [0.4 + (Enemy Level ÷ 30)] = Flat Armor penetrated_ When your target is level 18, your Lethality penetrates Armor for its full value.
: Will people start talking about what to expect from a Trump presidency now?
I'm not sure where I'm even supposed to find actual credible information about Trump's plans, since it seems like everything is "liberal media lies" or whatever. That's why I'll be glad when people lay off of Hillary and start focusing on the here and now. Though from the looks of these protests, that won't happen anytime soon. In the meantime, I have seen that Trump wants to put a man who apparently denies human-influenced climate change in charge of the EPA. Essentially, putting someone who doesn't particularly care about environmental protection in charge of environmental protection. I'm sure that'll work out great for Trump until his golf course is underwater.

The version from the anime was the best one, I think. Also, I'm pretty sure the Alola version isn't just a remix of the RBY champion theme, but a composite remix of it and the GSC one, seeing as it's used by both Blue and Red.
: Major Sun/Moon nerfs/buffs so far
Zubat learns Leech Life at level 31 now. It has Absorb for its starting leech move now.
: Can We Make Lee Sin unable to be blinded?
This would basically be a minor nerf to Teemo, as if he hasn't been nerfed enough already.
: Can we have some non-assassin lethality items?
If you made a "beefier" Lethality item, wouldn't assassins just buy that to get some bulk with their damage? How would you deter assassins from buying it, while still making it attractive to the champions you listed? I think the issue is that you want a stat that's tailored for a certain class on items that are not tailored for that class, like asking for critical strike chance on an item that isn't designed for carries. _(Isn't that one of the reasons Riot removed Atma's?)_

Blind pick has to exist due to draft requiring 16 champions _(20 if they up the bans to 10)_. Without blind pick, you literally wouldn't be able to play any PVP until you own that many champions. Although an easy way to fix this would be to just make all the 450 champions unlocked for all accounts by default and remove them from the free rotation. I believe that would give everyone enough champions to play draft.
NotSid (NA)
: Do you realize what you've done?
Our lesser of two evils is a loud-mouth with a short temper and no political experience. Ignoring any other candidates or their actions, just the fact that someone like this even got this far, let alone the fact that he actually won the presidency, is appalling for everyone involved, and I feel so frustrated at being a part of this country. At any rate, now that Hillary lost, are more people going to talk about the potential problems of a Trump presidency? It's been "issues with Hillary" everywhere for most of the latter half of this election, but that's all a moot point now, so we can focus on the future.
AssauIto (NA)
: Republican Dominion Discussion. So what happens now?
I hope we don't go back on all those steps taken towards protecting the environment and combating climate change. I still have a decently long life ahead of me, I don't want the world to suffer.
Azurasha (NA)
: I love GD, downvoting anything conservative until it appears Trump is going to win
Like anything remotely positive towards Hillary has been down-voted into the ground for this entire election as far as I've seen.
: I have an idea to rework crit and make marksman have superior sustained damage but weak burst
Yi's Q is a bit of an outlier since it adds a flat 60% AD in bonus damage when it crits, rather than the damage being boosted by a percentage. With 20% RNG crit and five Alpha Strikes, you expect to get the 60% AD bonus damage once. With 20% non-RNG crit, each Alpha Strike would need to deal 12% AD in bonus damage to equal out. So, basically, Alpha Strike's AD ratio with non-RNG crit (which I'm still calling Precision) would have to be _100 + (Precision x 0.6)% AD_, correct?
: It's not really so much of a rework to crit as it is a straight nerf. Right now, every point in crit equals a 1% increase in a champion's expected dps. Your proposal would change that 1% crit would only equal a 1% increase to dps after you've already autoattacked a champion 4 times. That's just strictly weaker. If we wanted to change crit so that it wasn't RNG based, the best option is to just change it to a %damage increase for autoattacks. 1% crit would equal 1% higher autoattack damage. That would have literally exactly the same dps as the expected dps that the current crit system has, while removing the potential for incredibly lucky or unlucky streaks. Or, is majorly nerfing crit the goal of your proposed changes? You didn't say it was, so I'm assuming it isn't, but I could be misunderstanding you.

That would have literally exactly the same dps as the expected dps that the current crit system has, while removing the potential for incredibly lucky or unlucky streaks. It's not quite as simple as just changing it directly, due to skills that don't scale as linearly off of critical chance, like Yi's Q or Garen's E. I do like the idea, though, and you could call the stat Precision rather than Critical Strike Chance. _Precision: Your basic attack AD ratio is increased by your Precision, up to a maximum of +100._ Infinity Edge would increase both your current Precision and the cap by 50%, preserving its current functionality more or less.

: "ur so bad, using a 450 champ" - Malphite
As a 1350 champion, that means Malphite is 3x better than your 450 champion. It's simple math, really.

I mean, Nautilus can proc it just by auto-attacking someone thanks to his passive. Poppy using her E to trigger it doesn't seem too egregious.

A no-marksmen meta will never happen on Summoner's Rift unless the entire class were to be nerfed 200 feet into the ground.
Rioter Comments
: What do I do? I feel literally trapped.
It'd be fine if I could just get to the point where the game's fun again. I really don't enjoy having nothing I like playing and being stuck with blind pick, though. None of the champions I like using are on the lower end of the IP spectrum besides Sion, and even then I'm not good enough as him to do anything if an enemy carry gets fed _(and with the density of smurfs in low levels these days, it's bound to happen more than once)_. Even if I did acquire a bunch of champions and unlock draft, it's probably borderline unplayable at low levels because how many people actually queue for support at low level? I assume it's mostly smurfs all trying to queue mid and hard-carry. Even with the reduced XP to level, level 30 is still a decent grind. Never mind that awkward point in the mid-teens where you might get matched against people with keystones while you don't have them yet. I had the pleasure of experiencing that once leveling this account a few months back, as an ADC + my support with no keystones on either of us against Fervor Jinx and Thunderlord's support Lux. I can't even buy any IP/XP boosts, either. I really don't want to put any money on here because this account still has ~3500 RP on it that I can now never do anything with...
: quickest way to cancel katarina ult
Fiddle Q would be the quickest targeted non-ult CC, I think.
: What do I do? I feel literally trapped.
I can't do it. I can't grind a third account. I hate this game pre-30, when you're deliberately gimped in several different ways and left at the mercy of smurfs. Is this nightmare over yet? Can I just wake up and resume playing this game as normal? I want to play League. I don't want to grind out levels, champions, runes, and rune pages again. I don't like any of the cheap champions, and the tier 2 runes are weak and inefficient compared to the ones I already had twice before. I didn't sleep at all last night, and I've been sitting here all day just staring at my monitor. I don't want to be stuck in everyone's shadow. I want to get better, I need to have my champs and runes so I can improve properly. I can't even just quit this game, not without unfriending everyone I know just to not be tempted to play it again. I can't take this. There's no answer. No solution that won't completely destroy my sanity to try.

It should be somewhere between Rabadon's and IE so that it actually amplifies Hybrid Damage like it's supposed to. The majority of champions that would use it (Jax, Kayle, Kog, Yi, maybe Shyvana...) like having AS. The only 'hybrid' champion that doesn't care for AS is Akali, but she prefers raw AP after her Gunblade anyway.
: Would this version of Guinsoo's be acceptable?
I assumed Guinsoo's is intended to be an on-hit "core" item, like how Infinity Edge is the core item for crit. It's just hard to design an item that actually feels good and does that at this price point. Especially since you have to be careful how on-hit items are designed, or else Ezreal breaks them. You can't just make it melee-only, either, because Kog and Kayle like the potential on-hit itemization too. That on top of the fact that the Phantom Hit effect was always hard to balance to begin with...
Rioter Comments
: The downside of being a one trick...
Well, you have mastery tokens for three different champions, so you're not entirely a one-trick...
: Why is Death Fire Touch so good on Illaoi?
I assume people take DFT on Illaoi because they just want Battering Blows, and DFT is the only keystone in the offense tree that does much for her. The reworked Fervor in preseason would probably work on her, since it grants AD now and Illaoi can stack it by hammering the spirit.
darkdill (NA)
: How would you try working a "Keyblade" into a Champion kit/design?
The special properties a keyblade has over a regular stick/sword _(namely unlocking hearts and stuff)_ are nothing that could be applied to League, so trying to make a kit for a keyblade is rather pointless. Like someone above me said, Ekko is basically close enough to a keyblade user in the way he fights, what with all the dashing and slow/stop effects.

: If Clinton wins, we will have the first president to take office while under FBI investigation.
I'm sick and tired of politics now. I'm sick of sitting here knowing that the trigger-happy, easily-angered guy who can never keep his mouth shut and has no political experience actually has a chance of becoming our President, and that the other choice is bad enough to where he's a viable pick. I can't just ignore all of it, either, because I live here. It's all so frustrating. Every time I manage to reassure myself Trump isn't going to win, people find more reasons to hate Hillary. I really don't want to support Trump at all. His temperament and need to respond strongly to anything vaguely directed at him reminds me of myself, and I would never want someone like myself in a position of power. I could just sit here and say I don't support either one, but it doesn't change the fact that we're getting one of them. Sorry for the mini rant, I just wanted to get all this off my chest.

When even the candidate who actually has political experience is still the "wrong answer" and the complete joke that is Trump still has a chance somehow...

If both sides are wrong, am I supposed to just support nobody and concede that we're screwed no matter who wins?
