It’s just too easy to get off with the big point and click aoe after an e. Either make it do less or make it harder to land

It’s just rigged to make people buy capsules to make up the gap and that’s my problem. They should have made it something you could get if you played a few games every day. The obvious point is that player count drops after worlds and I support them trying to combat that. They just went too far.

: If fixed your stupid promo, Riot, you are welcome.
Funny. You have a typo though. You wrote is instead of if.
: Why even start a game, when you have that adittude
Exactly, if competition isn’t fun there are better games for people to play. A vending machine would be perfect for them.
: this is the best time of year on the boards
: K/DA Akali updated!
: We Did it y'all!
I am elated! I made a thread about it a few days ago that got some traction but there must have been more to push them over the edge. No credit taken here but I’m glad to see it happen. You don’t get what you don’t ask for! The other thing riot has done was way back during the first round of Jinx nerfs I got riot to restore her chomped vision. It feels great to play a game with responsive creators. {{champion:84}}
: Because anything that lets people avoid dying is bad for Riot's revenue stream. Big Plays, killstreaks, this is what the viewers want. And never forget, Riot balances the game for the VIEWERS watching from the sidelines, not the players who have to put up with it. Fair play is unhealthy, the people want bloodsport.
Yasugoi (NA)
: So surrender@20 just got updated with some new Star Guardian skins and also a new double skin sort of like the Rogue/Paragon Butzcrank. They are starting to throw around a new term known as "Variant skins". Pretty much it's the same exact skin in terms of V/O, Particles, recall, etc, but with a different model. To quote the site "... we’re calling a “Variant.” Basically, they give us more opportunities to creatively explore different theme, skin, and champion combinations, which we think is pretty awesome for our players and artists. " Now i know people are already having discussions about price and worth and all these topics but i just want to say that this could easily be the correct solution for us. If it's "too much" as a chroma then it could easily be a variant. Sure it will cost a little more, but honestly i'm not upset about that as long as it's done well enough. Either way, supporting this blacklight idea 100%. Surprised riot didn't jump on this from day one anyway. Also fix the garbage merch with good merch pls :c Masks and nice hats, not dad hats and crappy logos..
Good idea. Riot deserves to make money and if that’s what it takes I’d pay up{{champion:84}}
: This is actually a great fucking idea instead of just making it a Chroma. Look at Evelynn. When she stealths, guess what? She puts on the glasses!
Ya people have been saying it’s too much work but I bet they could pull it off. If they can’t then a chroma would be a nice conciliation.
: Literally every other Energy-based Champ:
It does mean she is tempted to waste her w
: Petitions typically come with polls ... Otherwise this is just an upvote farm for the OP.
Fair point. I could give a fuck about upvoting though I just want the shiny colors.
: Absolutely, I think I recommended this in another thread as a way to bring this look into the game.
Ya I saw that and thought it was great. I’d pay a few extra bucks if they want to make it a chroma or something!
Rioter Comments
: Yeah minion block and minions themselves is one of the most hated things in the game for me. My ass is burning when I get a slap in my face, but trying to respond get blocked by minion , or I am about to kill, but fucking minions block my way and enemy manages to escape. Not to mention casual movement when you just don't take into account that this fucking minion will turn and block your way. Farming under tower is also annoying when they suddenly decide that this closest minion is not good enough to kill and they fucking run down the tower to kill that farthest minion who was (bullying them ? laughing at them ? what the fuck has he done ?)
Those times you get pinned to a wall by your own creep to watch the enemy ults rain down on your head.
: I agree, but point 5 is usually the other way around, as a main jungle I am always the one insulted by those who are losing lane. "gg no jg" said the 0/3 toplaner. {{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}}
I agree with this. Jungle and supports are taken for granted. I’m surprised this thread didn’t get downvoting because of that. However the post has some good points. Jungles make or break games more than any position except perhaps adc throws.
: Vladmir is a hemomancer, not a Vampire. Evelynn is not a succubus, she is a virgin.
Ezreal is not Lux’s love interest. She loves her brother Garen and Ezreal loves Taric.

: >Goal to increase diversity in bot occurred initially but has now reverted back to ADCS 100% of the time. Failure. Vel'Koz has already been played on the Worlds Play In with a win, and Heimerding has been banned 9 times for his botlane strenght considering that on pro play he's only viable bot (thank you mr G2 Hjarnan) Of course that non adc botlanes are less popular now, you needed some adcs at 45% winrate and being non viable in any lane to have champs that already had a lane be good on bot aswell. >Failed to make all ADCs viable, just switched out what the 'op' ADCs are. Was that even one of their objectives? Because it made no sense if they also wanted non adc botlanes. But yeah, they didn't made this point. >Goal to reduce early power spike by ADC's is a failure due to Stormrazor With the base stats nerfs every adc has a worse lane fase on top of the FleetF nerf, and StormR gives them a earlier power spike by the cost of being a obsolete item later that literally any adc outside Jhin sells. >Goal to reduce ADC damage to squishes is a massive failure. ADC's like Jhin, Kai'sa and MF still 2-3 shotting squishy champions. Jhin and MF does this for their kits, DarkHarvest MF with lethality isn't caused by the adc's changes, and Jhin always had his dmg burst for how his aa are (but now with the 600ms that is full bs, but that's movement speed, not more burst dmg and they are already nerfing it). And Kai'Sa sure is a problem. >Goal to increase cost of ADCs items occurred initially and then Riot decided to basically reduce them back to their previous super low values as a buff. Because they changed their goal, they realized that making a wholes class ultra lategame with trash early-mid was a bad idea so they reduced the cost but also nerfing the lategame power. And dont forget that Zeal items are still worse than on pre 8.11 and that Inifinity Edge now gives 10% true dmg convert which makes this IE version the worst version we have seen and the one that gives less dmg, compared to the old +50% crit dmg or the 15% true dmg convert. >Introduced a bunch of broken items that are abused by non ADCs ER rework was a total failure that is niche on his best user that is Lucian, they failed miserably right there. And StormR being abused by assasins is like adcs abusing lethality, it just needs some tweaks.
I liked the update the first few weeks. IMO they could have just lengthened the game by buffing towers and it would have been fine having adcs weak the first 15 minutes. In fact, the original adc rework buffed their late game it’s just nobody gets to see late game. Too bad it didn’t work out, it was an update that temporarily made me regain faith.

: An important message from Katarina mains to Riot
How about they delay the burst of other assassins to level the field instead of buffing an assassin that feels fair to die against?

: As they say: people on normal games doesn't makes the same effort as on rankeds... That can be discussed but... Just a pathrtic excuse to stomp new and low elo players compared to them
I think riot is working on a position ranked system that will give an alternative to those who are earnest about trying new roles. Hopefully that cuts smudging down but I’m sure it won’t end it.
Atlªs (NA)
: the reason why mobile champions are more "fun" is because there are fewer consequences for errors
To me, it’s more that immobile champs need their opponents to make an error. Mobile champs do not.
: This time congratulations Riot. The Nunu rework is at ww level
My only issue is how the snowball is similar to sol and kled but even then it’s different enough. 8/10 good rework.{{sticker:zombie-nunu-hearts}} {{sticker:zombie-nunu-hearts}}
: Sexualization is just ridiculous in this game
I agree! While we are making all the champions frumpy let’s also give them all mortgages and student loans so it’s more realistic. No magic either. I don’t play games to fantasize, I want an exact parallel to reality.
: What new map?
Nexus blitZ will be a quick game to appease our more casual player base. I’m hoping it allows riot to make summoners rift a slow map again.

I’m happy about the electrocute changes lowering burst. Akali is sorta multiple bursts to kill early so I think the changes will feel good on her tbh.

: Season 8 is almost over isn't it? Like 2 months away from being done?
No doubt we waited too long for corrections but it’s better than waiting until preseason.
: Howdy folks. **EDIT:** Despite me having made this comment only a few minutes ago, this particular post has garnered some discussion among the mod team, and we will be discussing it even further in the coming weeks. As for now, we will not lock this thread, nor remove it due to an excellent point made by The Djinn: "We'd let a straight person ramble about their relationship if they wanted to, or their life crisis or big decisions. I don't think people behaving poorly in a comment should stop someone else from getting to do the same." We would also like to clarify on the Sexual Orientation rule, and we will likely update it sometime in the future: Talking about your own sexual orientation, such as a post like this, is not against the rules. Someone can easily say that "My bf/gf did (insert action here)" without any action taken from the mods. However, talking about someone else's sexual orientation, especially in a negative light, is *definitely* against the rules, and will have action taken against such posts/comments. This is a gray area that doesn't always have a clear solution to it....which is why we are back-pedaling on our former decision. As stated before, if you have any questions, feel free to visit us in the Discord. Have a good one Electro

: I think someone on the Boards, among the first theories on this champ, posted one about the champion being at the very least associated with the chameleon, for its an animal known to utilize camouflage and hide by shifting the pattern of colors and shapes presented on its skins and adapting to the environment. Sounds interesting enough. The jagged mark reminds me of Bilgewater as well, especially when considering the Hawaiian vibe with how the flowers are designed. I think it was the Rioter WAAARGHbobo who once mentioned that the Serpent Isles have many "great spirits" or "gods" (like Nagakabouros) that their cultures and religions are based on- So, I thought that maybe this champion could indeed be a native to one of the Serpent Isles and possibly related to some kind of a great spirit associated with the imagery of a chameleon-like creature. Maybe.
: The Hidden, Colorful New Mage - Theories?
I think their hints imply that the mage is already a part of league. Perhaps they are a part of the map environment ready to become animated or a secondary character ready to take the stage.
: Season 8 is not on track lol unless you mean a track of failure.
Common board complaints are short games, damage creep, and toxic kits. 8.16 won’t fix these 100% but it’s addressing the issues. How about trying optimism out for a change?
: You may be the space cowboy, but they can still be a space cowboy as well.
: 1) Damage runes are NOT getting nerfed. They are getting restructured and actually overall will do MORE damage. 2) Not that she needs them. 3) New map is targetted at 15 minutes. What?
The new map being targeted at 15 minutes will take the pressure off of summoners rift to be fast and hopefully will allow riot to wind back the snowballs. Zoe may not have a huge win rate but her kit is toxic and she should be a niche pick with a low win rate. The damage runes will now result in a longer time to kill.

This should have shipped in 8.2 but it’s a step in the right direction.

: The dmg runes getting gutted?? what are talking about?!?!? they nerf like 20 base dmg ,but then halved the cd.Its more a buff than a nerf.The snowballing is still insane.Towers are useless.Iginite still op.Champs pool is fucking garbage.There are only like 30 out of 140+ viable champs.Still no early game resistances everyone is squishy as fuck etc...Yea they on track to the dumbster.
Ya the cool down times will be lower but the damage is nearly halved on them all. This means less 100-0 all ins and instead forcing multiple trades to get kills early game.
: But Riot would lose money if they did this. It'd be intentionally hindering their own income.
Ya, this idea isn't happening. Plus, they use the loot currency to get people to act how they want. Losing that tool isn't worth either.
