I really don't see how a community council will deal with trolls and toxicity, when that makes up the community.
: You completely missed the E changes, which include the MS bonus when travelling in a straight line, which makes him a valuable roamer. Additionally, making the stars remain during CC while reducing damage just kills the skill cap that dodging CC skills made so valuable on him.
Distance on the E went up though, opening up new paths for roaming, although i can get why losing the passive sucks. However, I don't really feel like the star remaining through CC lowers the skill cap, as there is a bunch of CC you can't dodge.
Jabalor (NA)
: Welp guess no matter how much feedback Aurelion Sol mains gave to you, you still went into with the changes. Changing him to be a more popular instead of the dedicated few is just going to create a Skarner 2.0
Didn't know Asol mains were against these changes. I'm curious as to why. W change seems to give the player a way to demonstrate expertise, and the passive changes seem to reduce the feelsbad situations at the cost of some damage. They seem like pretty positive changes to me, but I don't main Asol.
: Hey meddler, what are your thoughts on the recent wave of people wanting Fervor back? Fervor was a lot healthier for the game than conqueror is. Any plans on looking into this?
How was Fervor healthier for the game? My memories of Fervor were just of it being free stats, which seemed to me to just be a bit BS on champs with auto resets. I'm curious as to why you feel Conq is worse than that.
: I think if riot gave her AD ratios on her Q and E, she could probably jungle/top just fine. However a new passive wouldn't hurt.
What about something like Rakan's Q? Her abilities mark enemies, dealing magic damage after a period of time, while damage from allies triggers the mark instantly.
: ADC Burst vs Squishies WAS NOT nerfed on the PBE and I have the math to prove it
I don't really get the purpose of this. You compare the damage of a 3 item ADC to a target that has 25 - 40, which really doesn't seem intuitive. Past that, the idea of ADCs having a 24% chance to do 120% more damage increasing the damage IE gives also seems weird. Now, I don't have a degree in engineering, but I feel like you didn't take into the account the fact that in the majority of situations, having 80% crit chance is of equal potency to 100% crit chance. There is a reason ADCs builds don't currently aim for having 100% crit chance, it simply isn't valuable enough. Therefore, I feel like considering the extra crit chance as a 24% increase to the potential damage increase IE would net you pointless.
: Riot's bot lane favoritism is so obvious, it's sad.
The inherent lack of logic in this post is so obvious, it's sad. Let's check the patch notes for 8.8 shall we. Let's see, Kai'sa nerfs, Lissandra buffs, Nautilus buffs, Vi buffs, and Xayah nerfs. So in patch 8.8, Riot buffed bruisers, mages, and tanks, and nerfed ADCs. Did they also buff some ADCs, and nerf some tanks and mages? Sure, but that's because Riot buffs and nerfs things that need to be fixed, not because they are playing favorites.
PB4UAME (NA)
: We literally have burst carries, and tanks, with the occasional enchanter support. Everything else is nonviable due to the hyper damage meta, and RIOTs gutting of defensive items, and constantly buffing and overloading ADC/assassin items to the point where defensive stats can not hold a candle to offensive scaling formulas after about 1.5 items, or 10-15 minutes into the game. You need the massive CC, shields, and resists that tanks have innately for any defensive purchase beyond Zonhya's/GA (due to their uniques) to have any actual affect on your surviability.
Remember when Riot added an item to the game that gave you Thornmail's passive and GW on your attackers? Man, I hate it when they gut defensive items like that.
Azadethe (NA)
: Yet a good Garen can already get away every time.
A good anyone can get away every time, as when you get caught out, that's on you.
: "We're nerfing Poppy's positioning ability and defensive values because she's too stat checky"
Garen is possibly getting the buff to his tenacity/damage reduction, in the way that is the most skill expressive part of his kit, since the window for these high defensive buffs is so short.
: Why does riot try so hard to...
IT'S MATH TIME: So, leveling from 1-30 nets you 3 free champs, Ashe, Garen, and Brand. You can also get Alistar and Tristana for free, so that's 5 champs. Now, with the level 1-30 rewards you get 14 champion shards of various levels. Counting the level 5 reward as 1350 champion shard, you get 6 1350 champion shards, 3 450 champion shards, 3 3150 champion shards and 3 4800 champion shards. Now, let's assume that you hate every champion shard you get, and you decide to melt them all down to BE. You'd garner 6660 BE from all of that. Now, you add the various BE rewards you get from leveling, and that brings your BE total to 19310. Which is enough for you to buy 42 450 champions, or 14 1350 champions, or 6 3150 champions, or 4 4800 champions, or 3 6300 champions. So, if you simply upgrade the shards you get, you'd get around 20 champions, and then whatever you got from your glorious capsule. You'd also have some amount of BE left, but I don't feel like calculating that. If you didn't and instead decided to buy the champs you wanted specifically, you would be able to afford less, but quality over quantity amirite. If you add to that the current 14 free rotation champs, you are looking at _potentially_ 34 champions without spending a dime on the game, which is pretty good.
: *Locks in Zed* Can we get an AP top?
TBH, I actually like it when my midlaner locks in an AD champ, it means I get to play Karthus.
: That's why you almost constantly fight enemies at level one with your Q Only a Singed and the luckiest Tryndamere on earth can out-DPS Evelynn Q at level one That makes it so enemies can't waveclear properly in earlylevels. This MORE than makes up for the lack of earlygame waveclear besides after grabbing {{item:1026}}, waveclear becomes a walk in the park
I've never come up against an Eve top, but I'm pretty sure Aatrox could out-DPS her early levels, and he has the sustain to counter her sustain.

: There's is literally NOTHING enjoyable in a mage vs {{champion:7}} or{{champion:157}}or{{champion:55}} match up BECAUSE ONE SIDE HAS BEEN GIVEN ALL THE TOOLS TO OUTPLAY THE OTHER RIOT GAMES AND ONE TOUCH FROM THEIR ABILITIES CAN COST YOU YOUR FUCKING LANE, yet _<Removed by Moderation>_ is perplexed as to why mages choose to abandon "laning" completely and opt to clear waves. It blows his ADC mind that having literally 0 options to play aggressively because of a severe discrepancy in mobility and ability consistency results in people who play their champions passively unless the skill discrepancy is so massive that none of that matters. Even vs {{champion:105}} or{{champion:238}} every match up literally boils down to roll your face at them before they hit level 3, if you didn't slap your face on your keyboard hard enough then you're not allowed to interact anymore because you'll take 90% of your hp in a single trade, and post 6 if you get touched you die. Wow Riot, that's so fun to play against, I can't understand why mages don't choose to MUH INTERACTION more with assassins :O. _<Removed by Moderation>_
How is RiotRepetoir an ADC main? His highest mastery champ is Ryze, and that's the only champ he has mastery level 7 with. Hell's teeth, that's the only champion he has above mastery level 4.

There are multiple paths Riot can take with the game, and regardless of which path they take, there will be people who wanted them to take a different path.

Sure, but if they keep jumping from path to path, they will have something similar to the Sonic franchise, where the creators wanted to make everyone happy, and thus none were happy, running the franchise into the ground. That's a fair point, but I'm going to have to disagree. There's always a path that's objectively better for the game, and one that is worse for the game. Right now, there is an obvious path (or at least a clear idea of a path) that the community wants for the game, and what they definitely don't want. Riot is taking the one almost nobody wants, which is why I believe they should listen to the community at this time. I'm not asking Riot to be perfect, or find a way to make EVERY player happy, but I _am_ asking Riot to at least properly address issues or take a path that a majority of the community wants. http://www.auplod.com/u/lapuoda6bee.png
While I feel that there are paths that are objectively worse for the game, it is much harder to say something is objectively better for the game. For example, an idea I see bounced around here pretty often is Riot nerfing damage, just across the board. For some people, that is an objectively good change. However, it is my opinion that such a change would just bring about a tank meta, assassins would become more garbage the instant they fell behind, and ADC's would become even more necessary, which would make the game worse. I do not think you could tell me a single path for this game, that I could fail to find flaw that makes it bad for the game. I may agree with that path, but that does not mean the path is good for the game.
A Nunu (NA)
: They won't take it seriously. It's just fact. They've shown that they're focused on their own path more than the ones that the community actually wants. Too many players and content creators have left the game out of pure frustration out of Riot's incompetence to properly address and deal with issues, where Riot not responding only shows their point to be true. http://www.auplod.com/u/lapuoda6bee.png

I don't think that this really shows how the new lore is ridiculous. Is roleplaying a champion an ineffective way to play the game? Sure, but it doesn't reflect on the champion's lore very well. There are plenty of champions in League who don't have play styles who fit their lore.

With the MS nerf she's getting, her damage is cut down a bit more than what it seems. She loses power on her autos, just as a base, and loses damage from building %MS items.

I don&#x27;t know if it is the reason she has low base MS, but it does allow her, when she has the mana, to pretty much perma-slow someone. Which she never does in lane. 85 mana per Q. And her passive is on a 19 second cooldown early. Her range is also terrible.
725 units isn't that bad of a range, considering she gets an extra 100 for hitting something with it.
: Anyone else feels like Riot's writing style is kinda...lacking?
Have you read _Where Icathia Once Stood_, or _Burning Tides_? Both are really good lore pieces by Riot. I get how some people look at champion lores and think that it is underwhelming, but I feel this is less Riot failing to make good lore pieces, and more people expecting something different. Take Karma. I can guarantee some Karma players hate the new lore, because it doesn't represent what they think Karma should be. I don't think the lore was badly written, but as I'm not a professional author or editor, my opinion on the matter doesn't really have that much meaning. So, I plugged it into an essay grader. Evidently, Riot's writers have a "solid grasp of which phrases to use in their writing", with an above average use of sophisticated vocabulary. However, their use of transitional phrases was average, with the tone of the story being too passive at times, and their sentences began too simply, in an unsatisfactory way. So, there is that.
: Why does Lissandra have 325 base movement speed?
I would argue that it's Lissandra's Q that keeps her at such low MS. I don't know if it is the reason she has low base MS, but it does allow her, when she has the mana, to pretty much perma-slow someone.
: Hard counterpicks shouldn't exist.

: About Varus rework, and common problems in ADC role
ITS HISTORY TIME BOIS. In ye olde days, back when England was known as England and not Great Britain, there were this thing called archers. Now, English archers were famous because they had these massive longbows, and groups of them would block out the sun. Not really, but they tried. Anyway, military archers, at that point in time, were able to fire 10 - 15 arrows a minute. Now, that doesn't seem like much, but that was significantly faster than pretty much any other ranged weapon. Even when muskets and rifles started popping up, longbows still had a faster firing rate, for a decent amount of time. Also, crossbows had the worst fire rates. They were simple weapons, that required little strength or skill to use, which made them good for garrisons, but at the cost of fire rate and distance. The two most popular forms of crossbows were a hand cranked one, which required you to turn a lever to pull back the string, or a crossbow with a stirrup, which had to be grounded, then pulled back by hand.
: IMO Armor doesn't do enough and MR does too much.
I think its good they scale differently. There is a vast difference between AD and AP, and that should be reflected in the resistances towards them.
: @Riot This is what we wanted
TBH, it looks like a World Breaker skin. Old Frostblade looked more hi-tech than this iteration, with less of a focus on armor. While I personally don't care for the new Frostblade Irelia, I don't think this is an improvement, merely a different take on a way the theme could have gone.

: Why does Shen have such low base and scaling HP?
I feel like some of it must be Shen's auto attack no-no zone. In an early fight, Shen's W will block 1, maybe 2 or 3 autos, depending on how well its timed, and what basic attack resets the champ attacking him has. Is the damage blocked better than having an additional 80 base HP? For that fight, sure. Additionally, while Shen's abilities do have long CD's, they reduce the cooldown of his shield, essentially guaranteeing him a bonus 50 - 60 bonus health for whatever fight he is fighting.

Did I honestly break any rules, am I not allowed to talk a lot? I was still playing and basically solo carried the game, so that can't be the reason. Like I mentioned in the earlier thread, it was just a chat restriction for me, and I don't honestly care that much for the punishment itself, but I care for their policies. This could mean that someone somewhere has been permanently banned and lost $100 worth of skins for defending someone from a bully, even if he never offended anyone, merely by "spamming too much".
"Did I honestly break any rules, am I not allowed to talk a lot?" Yes. If Da Rules say no spamming, Da Rules say no spamming.

Not really. If you just showed the shadows of MF and Syndra, you would be able to distinguish between the two of them. Same with MF and Sivir, or MF and Ahri. While I get that Riot does use the same body type for a lot of its female champions, you can still tell the difference between based on the features that make them unique.
