: Zed also has resource cost, no shields, far less mobilty, and must land skill shots within a certain time frame for his ult to do anything notable. Yasuo can ult off any displacement barring knockdowns from literally off your screen for instant suppression and high damage.
"resource cost" his Energy is rarely a factor in fights and thats why people hate playing agasint him. He supposed to be gated my this resource cost called energy but that rarely happens. Doesn't need a shield he has long range dash in an instant. Again, Yasuo needs that displacement before he can even ult if those displacements dont happen or your team has none he won\t be blinking from off screen unless he is successfully landing his skill shot q or e q flashing on you. And the only skill shot zed needs to land is his q and due to the recent power creeps its becoming even painfully obivous you don't really need to land all 3 q's to kill someone where you can just pointblank range q and auto iginite e and most likely the target is dead Not much skill expression there as it used to be.
Terozu (NA)
: Zed has a much shorter range and isn't aoe.
So let me get his straight. Your saying zed has a shorter ranger then yasuo when has more range then anything in yasuo's kit accept his ult and charged q (two stacks mind you, sure he can get that fast later on but it still requires more then one press of zed's q) then has w that extends his range of both e and Q and can take it to instantly close and then ult you that follows during the duration of the cast? Yea no not buying it. Oh he is AOE btw.
: No, he doesn't. He goes behind the target enemy. This is factual, stating otherwise just makes you look silly. https://leagueoflegends.fandom.com/wiki/Yasuo He goes outside turret automatically, player input has nothing to do with it nor does his natural ult positioning. When you knock up multiple targets you select the position you ult at by hovering the champion you want to appear behind relative to your position. You cannot freely select where in your ult AoE you want to go, you always go behind a target. Read the wiki, play Yasuo, play against Yasuo, use practice tool. All of these are viable options to help you understand this fact.
Bruh your own link proved you wrong. "Yasuo Flash blinks to the other side of a Sight icon visible Airborne icon airborne enemy champion nearest to the cursor" to top this off its a fandom wiki not an official wiki. cause I have been placed in turret range before with Yasuo ult. No "auto adjust" saved me, was tanking tower shots.
: Sounds like {{champion:238}} r.... (also places zed behind enemy) Except yasuo R is instant and doesn't have a delay so you don't give out a warning, you just keep hitting knockups until you decide to press R. So why is yasuo R so forgiving.
But unlike Zed he has pre-requisite before he can even ult. He needs a knock up. While zed at lvl 6 can just put a point into the ult and be ready to go. Massive difference.
: His ult always places him behind the target. It's not random. The only time it changes is when he's under tower. So this point: > [{quoted}](name=Pika Fox,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=JPOz5rV2,comment-id=0000,timestamp=2019-05-25T19:47:52.884+0000) > > Removing this is impossible without fundamentally changing how his ult works. is moot. Besides, he has passive shield + E to just E through the target back out of the tower. He doesn't need this training wheel mechanic anymore.
Seems you don't understand how yasuo ult works. Yasuo gets placed depending on the yasuo's cursor. So if the yasuo player is dumb enough he can still end up in turret range. Its not something the game auto corrects to. So when he is real close to when not in turret range its because the yasuo put the cursor right around your champion instead slightly back or off to the side.
: No we can’t because that would take away mechanical skill and outplay potential
Like countless people before me have said. Remove ally creep block. That is just stupid to be hindered by your own minions, nothing skill full around it. To be honest some bugs they let run or balance issues/ clint issues run for so long makes zero sense to me. They make ALOT of money, money that game companies dream of to make off of ONE game and yet with all this money they can't mange to get someone in there to fix it. Makes zero sense. Unless they are legit not funding the game balance department and funding the Lore, skins, Music, cinematics, New champ, Reworks more. That is the only realm I see possibly happening

To be honest I was trying to find a champion to replace the two to fit the theme they were going for. I couldn't.

The ones that could of replaced them already also got bunch of skins (Was thinking Jinx could of replaced Ezeral I believe and possibly cait.) , The main problem is the theme they choose always seems to be anime themed lately or cute then got the straight edge lord events as well nothing more general where your like "Wow I can see everyone in this skin line"

Big Tick (EUW)
: Reducing damage across the board is not a viable solution because of breakpoints.
yea doing 10% damage reduction across the board wouldn't do anything. Hypothetically Lets say tomorrow Riot releases the patch and now everyone has 10% damage debuff for all champions from now on. This wouldn't fix anything because the balance issues with other champions still exist all you would be doing is extending the game by 10% (well I guess late game champion(actual late game champions) will have more of a chance to win games but not by much). Why won't this change anything? Because people who struggling agasint these insane burst also deals 10% less damage to those they were having problem with so they will still outburst you.

: League is evolving into garbage
: I do not believe that the future for League of Legends will be bright
Tbh I think Esports is a good investment but they need to maintain it properly, which Riot is struggling to do . They would need to follow Blizzards Starcraft 2 in order to survive past to where it is headed. Starcraft 2 doesn't have the active player base it once had at launch or even during its expansions that got released, sure you can still find games within reasonable amount of time and there still are plenty of CO-OP and Arcade to play but the main thing keeping it running is the E-sports side of it. (tbh I don't think Overwatch is a good example because I've talked to few of the people who play overwatch and they say their player base is declining as well) What I think it comes down to that decisions that were made that brought us to this current state of the game. First the creator of Riot said they want to be the next big thing to be a great american/world wide past time to watch people compete like football, So things get balanced around Pro play instead of SoloQ and because of this something were remain left untouched so hope that viewers will get a "new experience" each year watch them play the game while the shout casters hype up the game which has negative impact on SoloQ because Team's are usually less coordinated then pro play and have a higher ping then pro play (Pro play has zero ping btw) and of course massive gap in skill. I think eventually we will get to the point where they will stop supporting SoloQ and solely rely on Pro play and thats when the game is most likely going to enter the SCII phase where there isn't alot of active people but you can still get in a game but (since in SCII you only need one other player to have a game of SCII so in Leagues case its worse) Que times will go up massively due to it requiring it to have 10 people in similar MMR to get matched in Ranked (or who knows bronze might be facing challenger at this point) and auto fill will happen more often but they will still push on with the money they release off of skins or other projects and e-sports if they can maintain it which I am not sure they can.

: What do you call a Zed who is fed?
Yep Run right into your team with cc and now you got the shutdown:). TIp or trick you want to do if he ults your adc or mid laner, check to see if he used w to engage or if the adc step bit too far up and he casted right before his R but didn't take w. If it was used to engage then aim the cc behind your adc. He has slightly delay before he can take his R back, if he had w setup before Ring then aim the cc their cause he is most likely not gonna stand there to cast his q and e if decides to go in while your team is there so he is gonna take the W first.

Zed is cancerous. There is a big difference between. Oh. They counter picked me, this will be hard. And they picked zed, guess I don’t get to play the game tonight.
tbh anyone having issues trading with a zed just needs know how to play their champion better. Faced many zeds have won and lost to them just a matter of how you play the lane and what champion you are playing.

Mortdog (NA)
: Hey everyone. Let me see if I can offer more insight. We see all the polls, upvate threads, and requests to bring bans back to ARAM. We understand that a very large group of players feel this way. We get the benefits it brings, feeling like you have some agency to remove particular champs you don't enjoy facing. That's super valid. (I personally banned Teemo every game because trying to push into shrooms is pain.) We understand the desire and the need bans fill. HOWEVER, they also come with draw backs. Whether or not you agree with them, there are players that enjoy and have a high affinity for champions like Veigar and Brand. There are players that don't want to think about bans and just want to get in the game quick. There are players that enjoy the high and low rolls of a pure random mode. And believe it or not, most of them aren't "ARAM accounts". Discounting and downvateing them doesn't make them not real. FOR NOW, we'd like to see if we can solve some of the pain points through other methods before considering re-instating bans. Balancing has proven to work quite well, as we've seen Sona/Ziggs go from 68% win rate to 57%. We still have some more adjustments that can be made, but the champions are more fair to face than they have ever been. There's still more work to be done though, and more adjustments will be coming more often. (I've already got a batch ready for approval.) Bans are a very strong hammer we aren't quite ready to slam down yet. If you look at the ban rates I posted on twitter, for a few champs it was basically the equivalent of deleting them from the mode. If we made a poll saying "Should we delete Zoe from SR?" I'm sure it would have a ton of upvates...but we still wouldn't do it because it's not the right call. Game design isn't always about the popular opinion. That being said, we are STILL OPEN TO BRINGING THEM BACK if our other methods don't solve the issues. If after a few months, Fiddle/Veigar are still a pain to play against, then we'll reconsider. I'm sure this post hasn't changed many peoples minds, but hopefully at least shows you where we're coming from. Other common thoughts: *Look we had 5 melee and they had the perfect comp. This shows we need bans and they were ARAM accounts* - No...this happened either way, regardless of bans and they very likely were NOT ARAM accounts. The thing about random is that highs and lows exist. With all champs unlocked in our internal playtests, we still managed a Lux/Morg/Blitz/Jhin/Alistar comp. It was terror. It happens. *Why not just unlock all champs* - This would help for sure, but has side effects we aren't comfortable with. It's no secret that Riot does need to make money in order to continue as a business, and this would impact that quite a bit. However, I do think we can make improvements in this area. 42 F2P champs isn't enough. More on this hopefully soon-ish.

People who are actively buying champions aren't going ""ooo let me buy this champion so that I have chance for it appear in ARAM" instead are going "would like to play this champion in Normal or Ranked SR." ARAM only accounts are massive issue in ARAM and this will solve that issue while allowing more diversity in ARAM if you have "affinity" for current champions you are better off playing SR normal's or ranked then having a chance to land on it (if it getting more picked more then its either ARAM rng not working correctly or its a bloody ARAM account :|). The fact you're letting ARAM account only s exist is defeating the purpose of ARAM all together since it is supposed to be random not "let me buy 1 champion and boom get it almost every time) . So don't come to us with this illogical post.
: Careful White knights on reddit will defend Riot and say "THIS GAME CAN NEVER BE BALANCE THEY ARE DOING A LOT OF WORK GIVE THEM SOME SLACK" the game can never be balance i agree but you can also agree that if {{champion:67}} hasn't been nerf yet then you know idiots are on the balancing team. nothing justify her being allowed to delete squishy/tank/anyone while giving us no counter to her ult.

: Is there a reason why Yasuo is constantly left untouched?
Tbh I don't think yasuo is a problem right now. There are other champions that are far worse then what he brings to the table which is usually his 0/10 power spike with a side of toxic. Edit: Also I looked you up on op.gg and find out that you lost to yasuo because you picked akali haven't had a good win rate with her either. Probably still learning the champion but trust me akali should be winning that match up and yasuo didn't carry that match up either. he fed pretty hard himself, while the lucian on the enemy team was ahead by alot and zyra dealt the most damage by far.

At level 10 with transcendence and Cosmic Insight (His most taken rune), and Lucidity boots (His most bought boots), he's sitting at 45% cdr, putting his E on a 7.15 second cooldown and his Q on a 2.5 second cooldown. If he then lands the Q, the time until the next is only one second. This means, assuming no missing, that he can E AGAIN after just 2.65 seconds. That is a crazy cooldown.
I usually skip Lucidity boots because I don't need that extra cdr espically if you go for his new rising build where you buy luden's third item into a gunblade

: How to counter Hecarim?
From what I can tell you need some form of hard cc. Pushing the lane is difficult agasint a hecarim because he can ult from the fog of war and the moment you are feared is what end your life. you will need wards on both sides of gank points from raptors or wolves. i.e you would want to ward the bush in river that leads to blue and the one over the raptors part that way you can see hec either coming down the river or going into the bush to gank from behind ya if you're are pushing. Note: you want to hug the side that you warded that way if decides to gank from the unwarded part of map you can just walk toward you're warded section to avoid the gank and use your hard cc to stop him if he gets too close. i.e lux bind, morgana q, anvia q, LeBlanc E (if you play it right), Xerath E(should be very hard for a hecarim to gank this champion since he plays so far back), etc

No they would. Cause the moment they actually nerf said itemizations or runes then those buffs to tanks start to bring back what happen when we had the tank meta. and that was just as toxic as the current meta of blowing everything up. What needs to be dial back is how much power/dmg items are giving and nerf the damage keystones like electrocute and tanks will come back naturally instead of buff this and now its fixed but oh we now nerf damage so they are the kings now. we are already sej coming back into the meta and tank j4 as well.

: When will Conqueror Officially Be A Failure?
tbh they can't remove conquer till they come up with more suitable ruens for bruisers other wise you will just get more vlads and other range match ups in top lane since they weren't performing very with the other keystones.
: So you admit to inting in ranked when you don't get a 45% banrate pick?
: Realizes zed is going to be banned a lot XD
Ban the zed and I drop their lp -20
: Some of this is what people don't get. Every time Zed or a champ with duskblade is brought up the first thing people do is scream "LOL JUST RUSH ZONYAS". Rush that on anivia, or karthus, or Swain or the majority of any non burst champ and that champ loses lane and will be behind for the majority of the game due to the need to build mana pools. You end up rushing catalyst or tear out of pure necessity because it has to stack and are key items. Diana, Leblanc and burst champs that survive that matchup can just buy tome, but still need to then rush items to match the lethality and passives of a 2300 g item. Point being, the most aggressive mid lane champs can get ridiculous power spikes from cheap items and mages need more item variety. Riot doesn't seem to know what to do because of too many burst mages in the game that giving new snowball items will always end up making those burst mages more powerful.
take inspiration tree to get a free stopwatch. sure you gotta wait 10mins but hey now you don't have to invest the gold to survive while you get your mana items first. Aniva has pretty high base armor as well. I don't think its lethality that is causing its more that the keystones give champions like zed more burst then he needs.
: oh... oh my goodness i would love to have this as a **toggle** , just a " enable death animations " disabling them would result in the rag-doll effect for obvious reasons this could be distracting in ranked lol.
