: Thanks for making Akali look like an actual ninja warrior
No she's going to be attractive and womanly... butch seductresses don't get in the lords chamber.... And yes some DD's would help with that.

Oh yeh.... SUPER buff.... Oh wait are you talking about actual real life... or something you saw on a Youtube self defense bullshitsu video? Where some bleach blonde in yoga pants that hits the gym too much stomps some guy on the foot and he falls over? Kunoichi were spies and assassins... generally versed in womanly arts and seduction. Not MMA fighters.

: I agree, but at level 1 its no where near as bad. meaning, a base stat will make early and late game very different. Early: No one dies till lvl 6 for first blood. Late: Everything is always dead...and on fire... Thats a crazy tempo change.

Same for 320 at around 2700 HP. Less effective vs % HP. Better long turn gold value. 20 armor or 25 MR vs 50% mixed damage would be a ~10-12.5% increase in eHP. BUT would be less effective if you take into account BC/LW items/Void/Conq/IE/Other True damage... great for dealing with Lethality/Sorc boot rush. Basically how LoL worked.... forever. I promise you that you could plug that change in today and see very little change in game balance... but more build options. Stats are stats after all and they all have a gold value. Much like the old scaling HP runes the gold value would equal out around level 9 when looking at the HP option then slowly pull ahead. Considering late game generally has more %hp.. and early less... it works. Basically a stripped down non IP dependent version of the old runes that you could swap on the fly.

Ugly as the rest. RIP Akali 2018.
: >Doublelift makes a video on patch cycles and Riot jumps in with a 1750ish word essay explaining their position. Damage creep, Time to Kill and Game Length are hot button topics for a year and crickets. Because they've mostly been boards topics, not widespread on reddit, twitter or otherwise. Hell, I still don't often see these posts on reddit. In addition, look at the quality of Doublelift's video. He's well-spoken, provides points as to why he thinks something is bad and shared it in a way that started a discussion and created a viral video that spread across the league community. Conversely, most posts about the above topics are "GAME TOO FAST DAMAGE TOO HIGH RIOT KILL THYSELVES AND REVERT GAME BEFORE KILL TY" IMO: If you want a good discussion on the topic, make the post and start spreading it around. See how the community feels. Put your words into a format that's more digestable than a wall-of-text post. etc. The more attention it gets and the more eyes on it, the less likely Riot can ignore it without ignoring something.

Revert every change made after season 5.... and go from there. NONE of it has been good. Including this buggy ass new client and voice chat I've never seen used. And seriously... you are on the LoL boards telling us to go QQ on twitter and reddit for RIOT to listen to us? What is the company ran by... monkeys?
: There was nothing wrong with the last Runes + mastery system
The moment a working private server launches with the old runes/masteries Rito's LoL Lite gets removed. By far my favorite part of league was trying weird rune/mastery pages. Now I literally use the exact same 5 pages for every single champion.... at most I swap manaflow/biscuits out on non mana champs. Or swap Aery for Comet. Is it top lane non tank? Conquer + boneplating/second wind for easy lane. Can it all in cheese? Electrocute + sorc stats. Is it a tank? Resolve + inspiration. Hard CC? Aftershock.. no Hard CC Grasp... Sup? Guardian. Is it an ADC? Fleet + stopwatch... cause I'm fucked if I don't. Does it poke/shield/heal a lot? Aery. Does it poke every 20? Comet. grab stopwatch... again.
: Like the idea, but not TOO many defensive stats now, or the base EHP will be too high since they increase all base EPH since the runes update.

Damage has gone up FAR more than EHP...
DaCurtis (OCE)
: Create a Third Rune Slot for Base Stats!
I'd rather see stats removed entirely from the runes and changed to a secondary option. Pick your runes like now. Then spend 4 points of secondary stats. Heavy investments in defensive stats have better returns. Health 10-70 20-140 32-220 50-320 AS 5 10 15 20 AD 3 6 9 12 AP 5 10 15 20 Armor 4 9 14 20 MR 5 11 17 25 A simple 5x5 grid would add soooo much in the way of customization. Plenty of room for it in the existing rune page window too....
: I don't balance the game. You wouldn't want me to. I do help set the direction and philosophy for how we balance.

You wouldn't want me to. I do help set the direction and philosophy for how we balance. How about you pick the correct direction then? LoL is quickly turning into WoW. (IE the game that's lost over 2/3 of it's player base.) Also whoever thought that dropping 50% crit damage off ADC's wasn't going to be a big nerf needs to be staring at the small font of his severance check. If ANY of you took 30 seconds a day to read the gameplay boards you'd have seen 3k people telling you it was a bad idea. As well as crunching the numbers for you to show how big of a change it was. ~ 70% of games are decided(odds of winning less than 15%) before an ADC finishes a second item now. Before that would be Zeal + IE. Now the best they can do is Stormrazor + Zeal. I beg you have one of your highly paid employees compare the damage output of those 2. Old IE + Zeal vs new SR + Zeal. It's sickening how much ADC's were nerfed. Takes them over 50% longer to kill ANYONE. Meanwhile burst damage on Bruisers/Fighters/Assassins has gone up. The entire reason gold/xp funneling now exists is the zero impact ADC's have. Before it didn't matter how fed a Yi/Talon/Ect was if CC was properly used an ADC could still 4 shot them late game. Now they can blow up a tanky sup who isn't Alister in a single rotation... and STILL kill the adc in 2-3 autos while the ADC plinks away like a girl scout. It's so damn rare that's it like getting an non hacked Mew on the original Pokemon games to get time to Auto a Wukong/Nocturne/Hecarim 6-7 times you know?

Agrees... but sadly kids want more new and shiny. Riot is ran by Blizzard rejects, Tweens, and Streamers. Old league sadly is gone and replaced with 2-pump-chump CoD gameplay.

Like I said before, my problem isn't that assassins are weak or anything, but that we're just cycling through the phases with no hope for actual improvements to the overall game. Right now, assassins just easily goes right through a support's peel, so they're strong as fuck, but as soon as balancing happens, they are going to go back to being garbage. Assassins all having unreliable kits versus the fact that every single enchanter support has 100% reliable heal and shield procs makes it so that there will never be any balance. It's either assassins do their jobs with what little reliable spells there is left in their kits, and the enemy can't do jack shit to stop them, or they need to jump through too many hoops to match a support clicking a basic spell onto an ADC, and they aren't worth playing at all. There is no middle ground because only one class has counterplay, understood?

Assassins should be there to pick off non full HP squishies and to roam post 6 to attempt to snowball games. After balancing that's exactly where they would be at. Currently Zed/Talon afk farms out level 6... walks to bot lane from base and gets a solo double under their tower. It's what's wrong with the game at the moment... Why play an ADC when every game looks like Wukong/Talon/Nocturne/Heimer/Brand. Why play a tank when the moment you get ganked you STILL die under tower from full hp? When is the last time you even saw a Mao/Malphite/Naut top lane in solo queue? Why bother when you go straight armor/HP and STILL get dove by a fighter/bruiser and some BS crap like Noc/Wu and die in 2 seconds.

: No tits, no ass. Just a strong, independent woman who is going to kick your ass. Anyone who says she's ugly is just self conscious that a woman is actually more badass than them.
Or she's just ugly. Stop the feminist crap... MMA has a women's division for a reason.
: Take your negativity elsewhere
Nope... ya gotta deal with it. Welcome to boards.

And I care that you care that I don't care for her new appearance why?
: It's also not even true untargetability, she just can't be clicked on. AoE and skill shot damage still hit her
GG terrible Rito balance. Like ADC's need more issues at the moment.

: Most assassins have crap early waveclear. I mean if Fizz is using his E or LB her W to wave clear they're not dishing out damage early either. Akali still seems to be fitting the mold she always has in that she is a crap pre-6 champion (although she was great against Yas (or any other melee early). She'll still be able to clear as well if not better then she can currently (considering you level her E 2nd, which is her waveclear ability).

My 2 cent's would be to lower damage on Electrocute/Predator/Dark Harvest... remove duskblade passive damage and lower blackout CD.. lower damage on sheen proc items to 75-100% base then Lichbane to 40% ap...and increase hp per level across the board slightly so everyone ends up with ~60-120 more hp at 18.... then increase tower damage around 20%. But hey what do I know I've only played the game longer than most of Riots current "dev team." It's really sad to watch an assassin whiff their combo and still pick up a kill with just one ability/duskblade passive/auto/auto/ignite.
: But I asked that they buff Aery's shield. I was gonna include Guardian too. In fact, I'll edit it.
Long story short buffing shields means they just buff assassins even more. Which means other damage buffs to other roles. Here is an idea... make fights longer and less bursty where mana and HP are actual resources again. Lower damage and lower cd's = better game.
Eios (EUNE)
: I miss these times.
That comic in 2018 would be one panel long. Exactly how long fights last.
: Been confirmed already that things will still hit her if they’re in flight when she re-stealths: https://twitter.com/markyetter/status/1018903468793217024?s=21 (that’s a tweet from a riot dev)
What exactly is you point? It still lowers the number of BS weak ass tower shots she'll take by 1/2 while she waits on CD'd. Towers already tickle... INC Tank Akali.... Who sits under your tower with sunfire.
: And? If she attacks, she gets revealed, and things will still connect with her even if she restealths in time. It’s not like she can just permanently stand under a tower and never worry about it hitting her if she’s attacking.
: Nerf Conq 8.14?? Riot are you kidding me?? Top lane is already ruined, especially for bruisers...
: If we're not going to nerf Conqueror, can we get some slight buffs to other keystones?

They aren't all bad, I just don't really like most of them. Of course that's partly because people tend to get really stupid shit tattooed for the world to see, but still. In Akali's case I just don't think it was the right choice. She didn't have them before, she didn't need them, and they didn't add anything to her character - don't fix what ain't broke.

I see a tatted up gal and all I think to myself is that she's going to look like someone tore a page out of a Rand McNally, wadded it up, and tossed it into the toilet in 40 years. Tatted up chicks is a fad I hope to soon see pass. Probably won't be a thing again next generation or so as everyone has to grow up looking at the wrinkled skin of their mothers and grandmothers turning those tats into an eyesore.

All damage should be reliant on the skillshot(s). And the skillshots needs to be real skillshots, not the size of Morgana's Q and the speed of a Predator Quinn that just used Youmuu's, nor should they be able to easily be used at point-blank. Zed's Q and W+Q would be fine, if it weren't for his goddamned ult putting him right next to his target. Zed would be perfectly healthy if it weren't for Duskblade and the fact that there's no real way to miss Q and E after you ult other than by being completely idiotic. > > Actually, that kinda needs to go for everyone: The more *reliable* something is, it needs to be either more delayed **and delayed in a way people can actually do something about**, or be lower damage. The less reliable it is, the more damage it should do. Cooldown is **not** an appropriate substitute for an ability being reliable *and* high damage. > > Look at Ahri: Her W and R are her only targeted damage. Her Q and E are skillshots, and contain most of her damage. Her W can do a significant amount of damage, but it usually does fairly little *unless you land E*. Her R is a point and click dash, but it's short-range enough (per cast, at least) that it doesn't completely invalidate the skill behind her E and Q. *That* is what an assassin should be like. Mobile, able to kill in the space of a second, and **skill-reliant**. If you don't land your E, your kill potential against people goes significantly further down, enough that you usually *can't* kill a full-health target unless you're incredibly fed. > > Another fairly good example is Evelynn: Most of your killing power early-on is locked behind your W, which gives your opponents time to react, and it's reasonably dodgable, even though you're in stealth, because *you can't reach melee range while still in stealth*. A bit too much of her damage is point and click, but *most* of it is locked behind her first Q and her W, both of which you can play against. > > Since Evelynn is fine (when her numbers just aren't too high), we also see it's not stealth that's making them broken. Since Ahri is fine, we see it's not hyper mobility that's making them broken, nor is it targeted dashes. Both *also* show Electrocute isn't the issue. > > The problem is a combination of Duskblade and you just not being able to *do* much against them if they decide to target you. It's basically just relying on your team to save your ass, which means ADCs just *don't get to live if it isn't for a Janna/Lulu/whateverthefuck saving them*. I don't think you got my point. The problem with the current game is that reliability of assassins go up and down, but peeling stays as braindead as ever. There has to be a way for a{{champion:40}} to botch her peel, the way an assassin can botch his dive. Otherwise, assassins will only ever shift between the two binary stages of OP and worthless, with no balanced middle ground whatsoever.
I don't know what game it is you play but a full Zed combo backed by 1-2 kills and reasonable CS + ignite with just Duskblade/Ghostblade will kill an adc through everything Janna has with ease.
: Riot Balancing is Hilarious
Sorry but assassin players aren't allowed to make QQ threads. Those are reserved for tanks and ADC's.

Well she's definitely healthier. He looks like a side of beef.

: > i literally take the same runes for all the champs i play. no diversity whatsoever. comet, mana flow, transcendence, gathering storm, magical footwear, cosmic insight. If you take the same runes on EVERY champion you play, that's on you not Riot lol. I rarely even use Magical Footwear and Cosmic Insight (or the Inspiration tree in general), Manaflow band is a situational with Nullifying Orb and Nimbus Cloak, depends on what I want to do in that game. If I think the game is gonna stale I like Gathering Storm over Scorch and ya I always take Trans. Flip side though, there are good options with Runes, most people just don't take advantage of em.
