: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: March 27
Hey Meddler! Any thoughts on where the recent jungle changes landed? It's felt like jungle has gotten nerfed over and over again since the scuttle changes, and now feels like pathing/counter jungling does absolutely nothing compared to ganking. My enjoyment of jungle has definitely tanked since the changes, so just wondering if the team has anything in mind.

Hey Meddler, thanks for the update. Would you ever consider getting rid items like Stormrazor and possibly Duskblade? I think the frustrating thing when playing as/against ADCs is knowing that one auto from a champ that either one means guaranteed upfront damage, which feels harder and less satisfying to outplay. The fact that a lot Marksmen are essentially balanced around Stormrazor (If you don't buy Stormrazor first as any ADC that isn't on-hit based, you feel irrelevant and the late power doesn't seem to make up for that) is frustrating because it means no matter what type of champ you're playing, that first auto is going to do a large chunk of your health. Do you think the crit system would work better as a ramp up over time? Say the baseline starts with while in combat, it takes 10 autos to reach full crit value. So if my auto is 100 dmg, once I hit the tenth auto while in combat, every auto after then is guaranteed to crit at 200. (the numbers are arbitrary, just a concept). But then, Marksmen itemization could change how many autos needed to hit that crit threshold. So like maybe IE makes it so you need 2 less autos, Zeal items make it one less, etc. That way as the game progresses, it becomes easier for Marksmen to hit their crit threshold, but also rewards good positioning and staying alive during team fights. After hitting that whatever auto, you're guaranteed to crit until leaving combat, which eliminates the RNG and rewards the team who kept their carry alive for the longest. Perhaps this leaves the late game fantasy of a carry Marksmen while eliminates the absolute need for upfront damage items on them like Stormrazor. Just an idea. Thanks for always responding to the community on these. I know how toxic it can get sometimes.

: Tbh I'm a bit disappointed in the size of the patches since 8.12. Other than the rune damage/power nerfs Annie, kassadin, and a slight nudge to Crit items... It feels like what Is in this patch as well as all the other since then could have easily been two patches instead of six. Also knowing that the next patch is likely even smaller makes the game state very stale, imo. Hitting sejuani base dmg and a huge cut to her ult utility will hurt a lot. Aatrox might be a contested pick again with these changes aimed towards regular play since his champ kind of sits on a thin line. Everything else is pretty mediocre. (Not trying to sound negative in case I come across as highly critical, just think these changes are too small except for a few outliers)
That's their aim. They know they messed up by releasing so many game changing mechanics (ie jungler changes, marksman changes) and wanted to spend the rest of the season kinda normalizing the meta.

Hey Meddler, Any chance Sejuani gets some slight buffs? It feels terrible having every single part of their kit nerfed again and again because she's good in pro play. Also, you mentioned a couple weeks ago that Maokai jungle would be looked at, but the buffs on PBE got taken off. Is there still the possibility of seeing those buffs come through during the next few patches?
: Dunno what's worse
Cya. One less shitty attitude in our game. Makes it better for the rest of us.

Do you have any future plans for Kindred? I know they have buffs on the PBE, but it sucks when your champ is redesigned around crit but then crit completely changes. Their only viable builds paths are incredible expensive, and making their early marks worth 10x the Xp for everyone else makes it harder to start stacking.

Hey Meddler, Thanks for the updates, I definitely think these Zoe nerfs are hitting the most frustrating parts of her kit. Is there any update on Kindred? I know right before runes came out you mentioned you guys may look at them again. Imo they just feel pretty useless against any other jungler right now cause their buy path is so expensive, where pre-rework I felt that I was useful even if behind. Thanks!

They only hotfix for outrageously overpowered champs if they become meta warping enough. thats where people are fucking up. she still LOVES bork and hurricane... i tried playing her without those items and its just awful.
I've been building warrior and IE since her rework. Just played a game with Bloodrazor and hurricane and it felt sooo much better. Thanks for the advice.
: I love the new kindred the one thing I would love is a little buff to her early jungle clears.
I agree. I do really like the direction they went with the execute and making it so all of their power isn't stored in stacks, but their early game is very rough.

When I come back, I'll be a different summoner. By being a different summoner, he literally means a different summoner, he'll be playing on his smurf accounts
I don't have any other accounts. I've put too much money into this one to start another one lol.
: Good on you, Summoner. There are other ways to vent frustrations. -Bots after a bad match. (Practice tool too!) -RGM -Logging off for a break -Saying instead of typing. (Can even record if you want to listen to yourself. Can be enlightening.) -Drinking some water after a death. Enjoy your break and see you on the Rift.
I like the idea of drinking water. It'll keep me from getting too salty :D. Thanks for the tips, man. I will sure take them to heart.

: people conveniently forget about assists when shit talking people
I play a lot of Aurelion Sol, and I get this a lot. I'll go 4/4/20 with 90% KP and the most damage on the team, but I still get called out for "feeding and being a noob".
khorney (NA)
: dont play sol he is weak as you had just seen high risk low reward sort of thing. Easily countered low damage huge learnign curve which is why you rarely see him as well as why riot is reworking him
No, he's very strong. I've played 8 games of ranked with him and won all 8 games. They aren't reworking him, Meddler commented a couple weeks ago saying that nothing they were trying worked out, so for now he stays as is.
: Yes, that's normal, his Q interrupts channeled abilities.
Cool, thank you so much.

: Who's your top ban
Akali. I know she's not the greatest, but I just can't win lane against her while playing Syndra mid. And that's all I play.
Borkahn (NA)
: The one thing you got going for yall is that you aren't dealing with the best team fighting team in the world like TSM did. However the one thing against yall is Faker. Enough said.
It's the best team in LoL history. It's kinda a bigger deal than RNG.

RNG is subpar? What are your standards?
Rioter Comments
: Chiniese Plats could be TSM
No lol. And spelling is important.
Borkahn (NA)
: To everyone saying TSM is trash
I think TSM is the one who needs a new gameplan. Other than Sven's early game, the team looked awful. I have to admit, it was great seeing Doublelift get owned after slamming every other NA team.
AhmCha (NA)
: It's the first day
Doublelift needs to get his shit together if TSM is going to do anything though. His positioning was awful; he never even got to fight cause he was always the first one dead.
Borkahn (NA)
: Like SKT will do to you later on today {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
I sure hope not. C9 is coming off that embarrassing loss to TSM, so they're fighting for redemption.
: Holy shit Alistar needs to be banned forever until they rework this stupid champion
Nah, in the hands of a regular player, Alistar is just a regular champ. Now that showcase, however, was probably the greatest game of Alistar I've ever seen.

: Wow. Kindly show yourself out back to games where the passive-aggressive asshole (like you, btw) intentionally incite anger in teammates for no reason other than to troll and ruin the game for 9 other people.
A prime example of why you got banned. Dude, take everything a little less seriously.
: Seems a bit unfair, doesn't it?
Well at least they got one ban right :D
: State of Champion Update
I disagree with your bit about Vel'koz. I think he's one of the most unique champions in the game, and you guys did a great job with his rework. The passive, w, and ult are just so satisfying together.
: Worlds Ticketing System rant.
Same exact thing happened to me. Definitely not Riot's fault, but come on, use Ticketmaster for a big event like this.
: What he doesn't show is the in game or deleted part of the conversation where he was actually his friend and flamed him all game. i've played this game long enough to see through your bullshit and have seen countless people come here and complain when if you did nothing wrong you would talk to riot not make a out of context thread
^^ Example A
: Add me on NA servers when they go back up. I have a group of friends who aren't toxic (though we do love to joke at eachother about skill). We are almost all unranked to silver and we provide a safe team to try new things and have fun. I wouldnt mind introducing you to the group. we are always looking for new blood. :D ~ SinfulArtisan
Alright man, thanks!
: Why'd you take out his name? Riot could see this and easily do something to that sad sad person.
Post would get deleted if I put his name in here. Trust me though, I want to.

Play with me! I hate how mean people are while playing this game, so I try to be as encouraging as possible to other players.

Jhin's Ult music. I love placing down that R and being transported away as I'm about to kill some enemies.

Glad it could make an impact like that. I know that this episode made me appreciate LoL a little bit more.

Hot Cocoa is always a solid choice.

: honestly i dont care atm. im going back to playing something else. the systems sucks the community is toxic or trolly and people have their noses so far up riots buns they refuse to be honest to say , this game is pretty much bogus. but i digress. at the end of the day, people can do what they want in ranked que as long as its not hacking the system or being toxic. feeders win so let them win and continue to watch the playerbase go down because ignoring these issues. lataz
If you don't care, why are you making such a big deal about it? And that's just how this game works, sorry.
