: That is What I meant, But When I say OP I mean, Certain Champions Are More Over powered then Others. Say like A tier 5 Champion Vs God Tier. Some Are Just a lot Better at everything Then a tier 5 That Cannot do a lot, In team fights or splitting. {{champion:154}}
I think I see what you mean by **Over Powered** champions. I often feel the same way about Xin Hao or Lee Sin with them having an ability for pretty much every effect they need, which gives them too much advantage per level up than other champions. This would be how some junglers can still stay relevant in game even with no kills, because they don't need the kill, they just need the level up. Champions like Zed though or maybe even Leblanc get more of an advantage off items and thus are always trying to go for the kills to ensure they maintain that gold advantage. A Zed with no items but is several levels above you in mid, isn't going to be a threatening as one a level under you, but with half of their items build completed already. The player skill comes into play here on basically whether you know this kind of info about each champion and are able to act accordingly. It is less about champion tier as much as player knowledge. Next time you go into a game, and it begins to load the portraits, try jotting down how each enemy champion should play in lane and in teamfights and you can see what I mean. If you can keep up that knowledge throughout the game and act accordingly, you'll be closer to "god tier" playing yourself. Btw, my small bit in the other post was actually about your **Original Post**. It is kinda hard to read through when its a big wall of text with a dozen extra capitalized words in every sentence. If you just space it out a bit and at least lose the extra caps then it will be okay.

: When Against All Odds. Make the Game Fair For each team. Especially One With an Afk
Dude, you really need to edit that OP. Though you make an interesting suggestion with the whole "somebody can replace control of the afk player" thing. Or is that not what you meant?
: Dude, that's not even a number. That's the word "number". HOW CAN YOU VOTE FOR AN OPTION THAT'S NOT EVEN A REAL NUMBER!
Fair warning, your 4th option has hit 3 votes with mine. Your chance at perfection is rapidly coming to an end if you hurry!
: So Riot support is called "zen desk"
Honestly the name sounds fairly on point. Last I remember, note I'm not selling this as fact, "Zen" was about things being kept in balance. As in when something goes wrong in League, either a player acts douchey or somebody's server crashes, then Riot support is there to "restore the balance" and "maintain Zen". Now yeah we could probably do with more encouraging people to act decently as opposed to punishing them for being jerks when it comes to dealing with player behavior, but still, I think I get the sentiment behind the name.

Meh I've seen what happens to those champs when they get a decnet opponent and not someone they counter. Yasuo gets it the worst let me tell ya. Now show me a {{champion:53}} holding your highest mastery and I'll feel like I should hate you. But not really, I'm too nice for my own good usually.
: he was doing 500 damage an auto when he had 2 fucking items. go watch the replay
Truthfully, {{champion:104}} isn't so bad as you might think, as he's normally easy to counter with high range poke, but you just had a poor match up. For instance, check out your team comp versus theirs. low cc, low mobility outside of the adc, good poke on mid/support, but your adc is out ranged bot. You also have only one tanky champion in Malphite as you didn't build any truly defensive items ({{item:3742}} actually could have done wonders for you). Teamfight wise you're at a large disadvantage because you have no way to retreat from a poor fight, but because your opponents also probably snowballed and got a lead most of the time, you couldn't set up any ambushes in order to get an ace and stabilize. I'll bet that you personally also died a lot to being hard cc'd during your ult, as you can still be stunned during that, so a better item choice you could have made was {{item:3139}} as opposed to {{item:3156}} . That {{item:3812}} that I presume you were trying to build also isn't quite so good on you if you don't already have some health to spare, so a better option could have been just getting {{item:3072}}, or set up for Death's Dance with {{item:3022}} . Lastly, having the fervor of battle keystone may not be bad on yi, but to go raw ad as well is simply poor planning. Your passive may give you a sort of attack speed buff, but it is having high attack speed already that really make the ability be so deadly in tandem with that Keystone. Think in comparison to Yasuo or Fiora. Those are the sword users that kill with a few deadly strokes. Master Yi is the type to kill with a hundred strikes in the blink of an eye. Seriously, just _listen_ to Master Yi fight and you can tell. He doesn't usually kill in 2 or 3 hits unless he's built critical strike chance. The trickiest thing to advancing in League is learning each and every one of these little things about your champion of choice, in tandem with every other champion you happen to be placed with or against. And to be able to do so in the span of just a few precious minutes.
: i know she is supposed to be squishy i just dont understand why he is claiming being fiora and having 40% CDR is that big a deal when its how she kinda plays and leaves her forced to be squishy
Thing is she's not really so squishy when you can have a build like the one I mention that has moderately high health and armor/magic resist and life steal to go with all the damage you put out. Its like how most adc's are "squishy" right up until they have {{item:3072}} on top of their other damage items. Suddenly its impossible to kill them 1v1 or even 2v1 unless you cc them first, but you still take heavy damage trying. That's what champs like {{champion:114}} do.
: Or... Just don't... Let them learn for themselves, it builds character
Some people honestly won't learn on their own that quickly. They need to take that outstretched hand, or maybe a kick in the rear, to be motivated to learn from their mistakes.
: Old Yorick... Urgot... Galio... Apparently Mundo sometimes (since that's when it happened) there are a few enigmas in our world
I never see anyone use {{champion:10}} support anymore and when I do and proceed to do at least moderately well until the jungler, he had been busy getting his mid laner fed, finally decides to come bot and decimate the adc cause I was the only one warding.
: that depends if it's a noraml game or a ranked in normal you enjoy the game in ranked you enjoy the win
: Fine... *Ahem* {{champion:17}} Analyzes risks and tries to co-operate with the team. Is misjudged for his kit and bad reputation, but deep down he's a nice guy, with the disappointment of never being able to change their minds, even if he had 100 years to do so. Like I said, this is speaking for myself only, unless someone else sees it my way, which I doubt.
Actually, I feel this one works the same way for me. {{champion:223}} Will come into game feel fairly confident of own abilities, while anticipating much cooperation and skilled teamwork, but ends up trying and failing from singular snowballed mistake or continuous bad plays by allies. All while the opponent acts like they're of Diamond skill yet with a toddler's level of sportsmanship. But, if I pull ahead, will have no problems with continuously commenting on how the opposing {{champion:268}} tastes like chicken.

: What playing Yorick feels like
Correction, that's what playing {{champion:268}} **should** feel like.
: Write the saddest League story you can in 4 words. [WARNING, CONTAINS SAD CONTENT]
: building 40% CDR will make you very squishy....
{{item:3009}} ,{{item:3071}}, {{item:3078}}, {{item:3742}}, {{item:3153}}, {{item:3156}} I recognize this is not even remotely the best build Fiora could have, but you'd still be viable with this and probably the bloodlust keystone mastery and you would have 40% cdr. In addition to the armor pen and the speed buffs and the minimal sustain that goes over the top because of said armor pen and keystone mastery.

: Wrong. A player needs to be significantly experienced for Yasuo to be _just_ average. Conversely all of his strength as perceived by the community comes from people playing **against** him. For example just today I had an argument with a guy who claimed Yasuo is a win-win, because only way to teamfight against him is to either run away and not fight at all or dump all your abilities into an already placed Windwall. That's what I've been told. Or that other guy who claimed Yasuo is OP, because a Gold player got fed off low Silvers and Bronzes in a **normal** game. That's the idiocy you hear constantly from people who claim Yasuo is OP and requires nerfs.
Yeah, speaking as one of those lower end players, my problem with Yasuo has more to do with how easy it is for him to snowball wins with practically any kills. The worst thing about League to me is when certain champs get so fed that they end up impossible to kill without an entire team ie snowballer champs. Of which, players may not have to deal with in Diamond or Plat as much, but to everyone else its kind of a big deal. And Riot just gets to say "oh well, sucks to be you?" That's really not fair to the people who are the majority of the player base. I'll admit there's very little that can be done to compensate or fix the problem that these champions create, but refusing to do any significant changes is no solution either. The saddest thing is probably the players need changing more than the game itself.

: Describe yourself in 3 champions
{{champion:136}} Fairly creative and I like to put everything into what I do, but I can easily burn out trying. {{champion:62}} Can be overly competitive and hot headed-, but its less about winning for me as it is proving I've gotten better than before. (insert non-existent Ivern picture here) I generally want to be at least amiable friends with everyone I meet, or at least help them in a small way before moving on.
: To be honest, I've found that these snowballing champs are usually so powerful because of their mobility and my teammates' lack of vision control or awareness. I noticed this with Shaco, in my elo, Shaco is only ever a problem if he gets early kills. However, what makes him a problem is the fact that most of my teammates don't adjust their playstyle to the fact that an invisible psychopathic murderer is in the game. Teemo is so infamous that we all know what to do with him, and so he's usually more manageable. But a lot of these other snowballing champions rely on using one or two kills to roam and murder everyone else, who don't expect it for whatever reason. These champions are also highly susceptible to CC. (Fizz and Darius being the most difficult in this area.) But that is the reason most of my favorite champions are high in CC now. Given my observations on these champions therefore, I reason that their problem isn't so much a question of balance as experience. The players that know to abuse their enemies' expectations can end up snowballing beyond the point of feasible return. This is much of the reason that playing these champions doesn't seem to help with playing against them, it's the macro of their play, not the micro, that kills you. (Albeit, the micro is still important.)
So, basically it really is my team's fault? That doesn't sound right, but if only 1 of 5 people are watching the minimap, then it doesn't matter if that one tells the others to watch out for that roaming Jungler. Or mid zed that got a shutdown and escaped. Or the suddenly missing bottom lane that got a double kill, so yeah, I can see what you mean. To think on it more, in several of the games that that kind of snowballing happens to me the enemy starts roaming as a team to hunt for kills and gets away with it because they either destroy the wards we place or my team never warded anyway. And if we catch one that is legit away from his allies, then its usually the most fed one that can duel and/or has the mobility to get away. Essentially, if I need to change anything about how I play, it would be to start encouraging my team to check the mini map every so often or at least when a ping happens and/or also to just work more with my team in talking strategy on the fly. Now this sounds like it could happen, but I generally am in solo que so.... I've got my work cut out for me. Regardless, thanks for the reply! The whole snowballing champions thing was really starting to put me off of League lately and I really think this can help me get back into the swing of it. Now if I can just get people to stop sarcastically going "gg ez" at the end of matches.....
: deleting teemo
Actually I've got a question in regards to champions like Yasuo. By which I mean snowball reliant champions, of which I feel we're getting too many of them lately. I understand League is the kind of game that can change and grow by leaps and bounds over time, but I've started to see a very unhealthy trend where basically every game has at least 2 or 3 players using champions that can snowball of of even a single kill or the lack of a death. Yasuo is really only one example of this, but I can also reference Rengar, Zed, Ekko, Jax, Xin Hao, Darius, Fizz (one of the worst when it comes to this I've found), and several adc champs even like Lucian, Caitlynn, and Jinx as of late. My question about all of this though is more or less just whether anyone at Riot might also be seeing this trend. Where the types of champs mentioned above get any kind of kill in one lane, and proceed to get a string of kills afterwards just because of that one. Putting them at "Raid mode" levels of unbalanced power creep. Another more vivid example of what I mean would be how Ekko, a champs designed to be a glass cannon-esk assassin, became a tanky mage bruiser for his standard playstyle. He was played tanky, yet he still slaughtered players that were supposedly evenly matched in level and items. To me, that level of power shouldn't really exist on many champions, because that kind of playstyle doesn't actually have counter-play. You just have to hope you can avoid that champion.

: I've seen the theory of Jhin being an actor before and it fits extremely well. I was thinking of art in the broadest sense, so I tried to include allusions to painting, music and dance with the assumption that people would associate the dancing part with an on-stage performance like a play. But perhaps I didn't make that very clear. ^^; However, your explanations for each champion and how they fit into things is wonderfully well thought out! I hadn't put much thought into that, admittedly, but your theory makes perfect sense considering what we can gather from Jhin's character. I think we both agree that he's a lot deeper that what appears on the surface - just like all kinds of art, music and theater pieces in the real world. You just need to know where to look for it. ^^
Seems as much, and if the wording feels a little wonky, like the start of it, its cause it was worded to reply to the first comment way up at the top by Summoner "Rhykes". (make sure you're in most popular if it's not showing up)

: I may hold an unpopular opinion, but I think that the disconnect between Jhin's kit and his theme might be intentional. I know, that sounds absurd, but hear me out real quick. Allow me to point out that, in his splash art, he's looking at his reflection in a cracked mirror. Obviously we know that this is meant to represent his fractured view of the world and of himself, where while he views himself as an artist, he's truly a ruthless murderer who will do what it takes to make sure his targets die a "beautiful" death. And to him, his kit might actually be helping to achieve such a thing. Let's take his trap firstly. For some artists, there is beauty in struggle, in attempting to overcome the odds and find peace with yourself or the world. For a twisted killed like Jhin, he may find beauty in the struggle of staying alive, in fighting against the inevitable. The hopes of living, only to be snared and having those hopes snuffed out....for Jhin, this may be quite a beautiful death indeed. But sometimes, an artist wants something more....powerful. Something grander, more vibrant. For some, this means a more rapidly-paced musical piece or a high-energy dance routine. Ah, but for Jhin, the smell of smoke, the screams of pain as his target is burnt with his grenades, the glorious burst of heat and color that comes when his canister finally erupts - that also could be a thing of beauty. It's not as symbolic or graceful, but a true artist learns to appreciate beauty in all things. Ah, yet these methods are so impersonal, aren't they? There's such a disconnect when the artist isn't involved in their work. That's where his guns come in. For those of you who may not know, the number four is actually quite taboo in some cultures, for some believe it to be the number of death - it's sort of like how we Americans associate the number 13 with bad luck and misfortune. His passive having four shots, with a beautiful last shot to end it all, is like a brisk tempo in a dance, stepping in rhythm to gunshots. His W is quite symbolic of how frustrating it is to get a piece just right as well. It's so easy to miss your mark when you're trying to make something beautiful, but doesn't that just make it all the more satisfying when you finally get it right? It certainly helps when your audience is interested (hence the mark from the E). And as for his R? The piece de resistance? When you make your masterpiece, you want to make sure it leaves in impact for all who witness it. You don't want your climax to fall short now. You want the chorus to sing loud, the music to build, you want that moment to feel as though it's what you've been waiting for this whole time. Everything has been leading up to this final, finishing moment. And when it's done and you've hit your mark, all we see the beauty in your grand performance. The curtain falls, the audience applauds, and you can't wait until you get to work on your next piece.... So...it may just be a matter of interpretation. Maybe I'm just looking too much into this. But Jhin is a complicated mind. Where we see chaos and destruction, he will see beauty and art, a symphony that only a virtuoso such as himself could hope to compose. And perhaps it's to his own frustration that none of us see what he sees. Perhaps that is why he keeps trying to create bigger and better pieces, to make all see that his art is beautiful. Though unfortunately, an artist's mind is often a hard place to understand for those who don't appreciate such things. Or rather, it's hard for the sane to understand the twisted. That's just my take on things, though. Everyone's entitled to their opinions, of course, and some may not see what I see in Jhin's creation. For some, this might lead to him coming across as lackluster and lacking passion in his design. But then again...perhaps we're supposed to feel that way about him. Let's just call it...a disagreement of artistic opinion, yes? Let's hope Jhin doesn't hear you, though. He may decide to make you his next work.....
Art is not a narrow term you know. Cubism is a narrow description for art. A Sonata is a specific type of musical piece. Art, as a stand alone term, is very generic and can easily apply to other less obvious forms of itself. Like acting. And here is where a lot of people are missing (thought some do get it) is **Jhin is not an artist** (as in painter) and doesn't face the same kind of struggles as one. **He's an actor**. He, his weapons, and his opponents are all just props and actors in an ongoing tragic play that he has created within his mind, and everything he does is for the imaginary audience. Of course no audience should know the ending of a play before it begins, hence you should never start out with his e. There is no point trying to keep people in one place before you've even dazzled them with fanciful **_deathly flourishes_** of your guns, or held them in a deadly **_dance with your grenades_**. However, while you're waiting for the proper lines to come the audience may begin talking to each other to not be bored, and you must ask them to **_whisper_** while the play goes on. Once you've obtained your Q and W you may then set up for your e so as to root them in place for the grand finale. Finally with the stage having been set and played out, your traps sprung and your shots fired, you end it all with the ultimate _**Curtain Call**_. Signalling the end of that act or teamfight, and the start of a new one. Also bonus points to Riot for each of the teased champion "deaths" tying in to a possible wish granting genie/djinn/**_Jhin_** theme: Zed, for all his talents as a ninja, wanted only to be better at killing people. Truly to him no technique was forbidden if it meant he could more easily slice people up and that was all he taught was how to take life. Jhin comes along to put him down and finally with Zed's death he is able to breath some kind of life into the world that he took so much from (with the plants growing out of his dying body thing). Garen, for all his medals and honorably ways, lies to even his closest friends and hides his true ambitions (likely that of Katarina liking him back based on his quotes to her). Upon dying to Jhin's gunfire this facade dissipates in a diamond-like glitter that lightly floats away as at last Garen can let his feelings be known, if only with his last breath. People may have always appreciated Sona's talents as a musician, but to her she could never express herself vocally. A tragedy in itself, Jhin feels he can grant her the wish she desires with a bullet through the throat. Surely with that much new space for air to get in her lungs she could finally express herself. Strangely gargling and then choking on blood makes it hard to hear the "thank you" he was looking for. Finally with Vi one must realize that she never seemed to settle on who she was. Born and raised in one nation she easily abandoned her friends for the chance at something new, yet she still can't even decide on what her name stands for. Jhin, knowing of her plight, seeks to give her the conviction she needs to shed and burn off the uniform and armor that weigh her down and confuse her as to where she belongs. The answer was obvious that she belonged 6ft underground. Now I don't know about you, but I see a hell of a lot of depth, creativity, and passion going in to designing Jhin. He is truly a Virtuoso in the art of killing people.

Yeah you seem to get what Jhin is all about it seems I tried to post my theories above but I'm not sure if it actually caught on so let me place it here and see what you think of it.
Rhykes (NA)
: I find it rather odd that there's almost nothing "artistic" about his playstyle, his kit, appearance, or graphics. I'm assuming he has unique taunt interactions with a few champions, but beyond that, the teaser seems... amazing but totally irrelevant. I don't see why they didn't add something like getting a Killing Blow with an R bullet summons a tree on the enemy's corpse that grants a small amount of vision and slows around them for a couple seconds. It would be more unique than yet another super-long range skillshot ult, and would help tie the teaser with the champion more. Disappointed, but at least he looks more engaging than other marksmen... not that that is particularly hard to do.

Garen, for all his medals and honor hides his true ambitions (likely that of Katarina liking him back based on his quotes to her). Upon dying to Jhin's gunfire this facade dissipates in a diamond-like glitter that lightly floats away as at last Garen can let his feelings be known, if only with his last breath. People may have always appreciated Sona's talents as a musician, but to her she could never express herself vocally. A tragedy in itself, Jhin feels he can grant her the wish she desires with a bullet through the throat. Surely with that much new space for air to get in her lungs she could finally express herself. Strangely gargling and then choking on blood makes it hard to hear the "thank you" he was looking for. Finally with Vi one must realize that she never seemed to settle on who she was. Born and raised in one nation she easily abandoned her friends for the chance at something new, yet she still can't even decide on what her name stands for. Jhin, knowing of her plight, seeks to give her the conviction she needs to scrape of the uniform and armor that weigh her down and confuse her as to where she belongs. The answer was obvious that she belonged 6ft underground. Now I don't know about you, but I see a hell of a lot of depth and passion in Jhin.

Given a little finegalling with the wording in my lore I have _her_ name: Raina of House Tronos. Also I need to learn "how to gif" so I can do that stuff myself.

Rioter Comments
: Replace a word from a champion quote with "Booty"
He's not my favorite champ, but I also have yet to see anyone post about him. _"Afraid of the booty? WISE!"_ {{champion:31}}

The content is for us (we) not the employer as for the consistency of the event, they should take into consideration the changes their making to the event and have a chance for the community to react and respond instead of "forcing it down our throats". Especially with how dramatic the change of tone is
I can understand how it feels like the idea is being "forced down your throat", but I also understand the player base currently has no say in what content Riot puts out nor can they change when Riot decides to release that content. Basically the content may be made for the players, but its not made by the players. Now such a feature would be incredible useful if players were allowed to essentially vote on what kind of content they wanted to see happen next, and I sorta hope that's what Riot is leading up to with special events not being tied to a certain season anymore, However I also see where such a voting system could be abused by trolling players or trolls in general and Riot has usually been quite cautious about anything that would allow such abuse. Still, I can definitely admit a more noticeable heads up about the change in the event would have been nice. And to possibly better explain the whole "don't say we" thing is that I feel very strongly about using the right words to describe what I mean to someone, and if I can't find the right words I tend not to say anything rather than be misunderstood. In an extreme (and sorta funny) case you could look at the Dragonball Z abridged episode (look up Team Four Star on Youtube if you don't know what I mean here) involving Bardok trying to speak for the rest of the Sayains. While Bardok says "we won't put up with your tyranny anymore" there might be a number of Sayains that would very willingly work for Freiza despite his actions against their race.

: Harrowing confusion?
To everyone here who has been using the term "we" in their comments, **YOU ARE NO THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY SO PLEASE STOP TRYING TO TALK FOR EVERYBODY!** You can have your own opinion, but not everyone has your exact opinion. _Not everybody thinks zombies aren't scary._ If I saw dead and decaying _corpses_ walking around I'd get more than a little freaked out. _Not everyone thinks the Harrowing event has got to be the same as that one year where everything was timed well for Halloween._ Good as that particular version of the event was not every Rioter is going to have that same kind of inspired style, and it is very likely that as a company if an employee has an idea for something new they will be willing to listen to him (which in the case of the zombie apocalypse theme they probably have). _Not everyone cares whether the same event is at the same time every year._ If Riot had "Harrowing" skins ready in March why would they bother sitting on them for 6+ months when they could just have another skin set come out then? Or another example how many "creepy" skins has Riot released before that were not released on or even near Harrowing? So taking into account the above, please start taking into account that you are not the entire community when you post and learn to adjust your comments appropriately.
: /ALL Chat | Guide to Pronunciation
I see all these posts about how to pronounce champion names and not one person points out that pitch perfect "Marvin the Martian" reference? I legitimately thought I heard the original voice actor for a second.
: Yeah, transitioning to this more...uh....reactive....schedule gives a lot more chances for entries but is entirely too confusing for the moment. Hopefully we'll settle back down. The *October* CCOS starts to take entries on the 24th. The *September* CCOS results are going to be announced in 3 days time.
Ah ty. the date is what I was looking for. And another question is you usually don't have any sort of focus for these contests right? Maybe a themed bonus but no theme required of characters made?
: Your main accidentally leaves their computer open, and you see their internet history
While technically {{champion:104}} is more my main-in-the-works... I find he spends a large amount of time checking out the latest news about gun and smoking laws in his area (mainly so he knows how to not be arrested on sight). I also found several orders from Amazon for both gun cleaner and mustache wax. And apparently one trip to his email page about his "My Little Pony" subscription.
: wow just 3 words so harsh so cruel
I would of had a Doctor who joke here, but I'd can't find the gif and don't want to ruin it by explaining. Farewell missed reference opportunity. You will be missed. {{item:3151}}

: 1) We aren't talking about how old the zombie idea or theme has been around, just necessarily the overuse of it recently. It seems nowadays anything supposed to be remotely "spooky" is zombie themed. 2) They certainly aren't fun and different, as they look pretty bland and unfun. The particles might be cool, but they don't have many "differences" or anything fun. They are uninteresting and don't fit at all with League's past Harrowings. 3) Shut up? Really? It seems from this post and many others like it that the majority of the community dislikes these skins. We were expecting something that appealed to the majority of us, not just the odd person here and there, as the Harrowing comes once a year and we all anticipate with high expectations the quality of skins and lore. Now the lore of this years Harrowing hasn't been revealed yet, but it had better be pretty great to make up for this significant failure in the skin side of things.
I think his point was that its not just a recent thing with zombies being overused. More over zombies aren't really supposed to be seen as spooky as much as frightening. Which is what the Harrowing is really all about isn't it? To scare the crap out of people? To me spooky sounds more like doors opening and closing on their own and that kind of thing. There's an unseen force at work and you're scared but still curious to know what's going on. Zombies are the dead coming back to life and eating people, which I think is meant to invoke a fear for your life over a curiosity about where the zombies are coming from. There's no unseen force its just the dead are alive and they're not friendly. Sounds like Harrowing material to me. These are my thoughts on it based in Riot wanting to take a somewhat serious approach mind you and not making a joke zombie skin. As for the Slayers they're really closer, I'd say, to joke skins. Not for possibly being weaker quality, but rather that both skins use a lot of zombie survival tropes in their animations. Pantheon obviously using a chainsaw-spear that is reminiscent of the ever present ideal of "chainsaws are the best weapons against zombies". For Jinx the "jokes" are less noticeable but still there. Like her chompers being chopped off zombie heads and her rocket shooting Molotov cocktails (ever played 'Left for Dead'?). Now obviously not everyone is going to care that much to notice these things about the champion skins (and sadly that's a very large majority of League), but I think you're giving Riot too little credit as far as the quality. Also "fun" is a matter of opinion, and not a definite truth defined by any one person. Lastly, just because you speak up doesn't make you the majority. Yes a lot of other people have made posts about not liking the skins but others have also defended them. Personally I think if the community should ask anything of Riot about these skins, its to add an effect to the death animation where the Slayer skins get swallowed up by zombie hands from the ground. Now that would be cool!
: [CCOS] 24 hour warning! Last chance to enter any October Champion Concepts!
Okay, so I know I missed my window for this CCOS. However, could you refresh me on when the next one starts? I vaguely remember that a while back you had a sort of schedule to these, but things like exact dates pulled a jailbreak a long time ago.

: You get to me later? For what?
For attempting to throw some water on this inferno of a Riot hate thread. Seeing how high said inferno has gone however I'll just let it burn itself out like the rest and save myself the headache. Half of the people I tried to talk to didn't listen anyway and you, the person started this thread in the first place, are not about to be any easier to talk to.

: > No I shouldn't have referred to Sona's "ally tag lines" as auras as that's not strictly what they are but that's honestly the best description for them since they can potentially affect her entire team. Actives are the best word for them. I've also messed around with terms like non-aura, not-aura and the like. > Nami's slow from her E is more accessible but also for a shorter duration unless you can get all of the enhanced attacks out at once. Making it most ideal for attacking someone you don't want to escape or to chase you down If you're using up Sona's passive that takes 3 spell casts(and thus 3 spells worth of mana and cooldowns) on Tempo, it means you don't want your target moving, either chasing or escaping. Saying that Nami's E is ideal only for the exact same reason is meaningless. As for the duration of Nami's E, with all 3 procs it is potentially the longest duration of any one CC basic ability out of all supports. > Similarly Nami and Sona can speed people up, but Nami has to target herself constantly to keep up Nami is an entire 2 movement speed tiers higher than Sona. She has a much easier time keeping up without having to rely on MS boosts. That aside, Nami has 4 movement speed spells to Sona's 1. Nami's ult especially just had its MS bonus buffed in a recent patch. > If you really want me to I can keep going for pointing out those differences, By all means keep going, it just gives me more opportunities to prove ways where Nami is superior to Sona.
> By all means keep going, it just gives me more opportunities to prove ways where Nami is superior to Sona. This last comment says it all about my ability to get my point across to you. Because this tells me you are either not getting my point still or you did get it and just ignored it. Either way, I'm just going to quit trying and let you go about your day. Its obvious to me from your other comments around this thread that you have been trying very hard before to get Sona's rework changed and have put a lot of work into that effort. But I am also seeing you refuse to even try to use Sona in her present state solely because she's not as good in competitive games as champions similar to her. Not everything in League of Legends is based around competition. Some of it is as simple as playing the champions you choose to play with your team. Please, don't turn into someone who refuses that aspect of it.

: This "niche" you talk about is so incredibly rare and "unique" that it doesn't actually exist. Sona was ALREADY a niche pick before 4.13, now she's just completely unplayable entirely. Note that both Bard and Nami have actually seen repeated professional success in the past year. Sona has not won a single pro game since the patch went Live.
I'm actually a little confused here on whether you mean she's not won any pro games she's been in or she's just not been used in any pro games to win them. At the least I would argue with you saying she's completely unplayable if for no other reason than ARAM still exists and isn't likely to go away anytime soon.
