: Akali as a melee assassin is beating bruisers top lane
Can we stop acting like the triangle is still a thing? It went out the window once ADC's could smash assassins
: 10 tickets per day?
Yeah I wasn't sure but they didn't specify. I feel like if it was a dungeon pass requirement then they should have put it under those passes instead of its own section

: Riot, can we please report people in champ select?
Haha the nerve of this guy to say he let him top{{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}}
: Honestly, I'd be totally okay with Gunblade being nerfed, as long as it's not losing stats
The problem isn't that gunblade is op. It's that riot is consistently nerfing AP items. Obviously people are gonna move to new items when you make AP items suboptimal.

: I would do it like this: 1: go here https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new 2: select I have a question about league of legends. 3: post this board post pretty much unedited and ask how you can get them reported. There currently is no better option, I think this is kinda sad tho. also post the players name in there of course as naming and shaming is allowed in support tickets(not on the boards tho).
Awesome, thanks. Yeah I don't know why Riot doesn't have a better way to do this since a lot of toxic things occur in champion select

What's going to stop the dodger from say, queuing up for the 2 roles that he hates the most the next time to better ensure that he gets the role he wants/finds bearable?

And as avid a gamer as I am, I don't think even students with all their supposed free time should waste THAT much trying to compensate for every afk and troll they encounter. Statistics also say that the odds of getting 5 trolls in a row (or 5 games where a teammate trolls before getting 1 where the enemy trolls) is a statistical rarity. You are much more likely to get the same number of trolls on your team as on the enemy team than to consistently be placed with a troll on your team. The real problem is that people notice and remember when there is a troll on their own team but are much less likely to remember a troll when it is on the enemy team. This skews the perception of trolls/feeders/afkers on your own team and a huge sample of the league population goes around screaming "woe is me!" when in reality they have likely had even numbers of trolls on the enemy team.

What I don't understand is that people never seem to realize that the other team is just as likely to have these trolls on their team. The trolls aren't the reason you can't climb, inconsistent play is. If you consistently play at a level above your rank then you will climb higher as the odds will even out. If you want LP decreased for a loss for having a troll on your then you should receive less LP for winning a game with a troll on the opposing team, otherwise it will be much easier to climb in ranked.

I'm not really sure why Lux gets another skin but these are dope.

I don't think I would ever drop 25-30 bucks on a skin but dang that is a cool concept
: Vote disband in champion select
If there's an LP penalty then you might as well dodge. This would just make it difficult to play an off meta pick and as others have said, the queue times would become long as people dodge any time the enemy's team looks better.
: So what's the point of not making small adjustments to a champ if they have a rework lined up?
It's even worse that they are doing "mini" changes on Akali and Shaco that completely gut the champions and when the playerbase says these changes will make them useless Riot responds with how they will get a rework in the future. Why even gut them now when they are not really impacting the game and are just gonna get a rework in the future anyways?
: Akali Changes Will Encourage Tankali and Move her Away From Being an Assassin
Yes, I am not sure you can have true assassins in this game if they are not able to quickly and efficiently kill the ADC. I have not messed with the other assassins in PBE but if they are adding delay to all of the assassins kits then they may need to look into nerfing ADC damage. There is no point to picking an assassin if they can't even 1v1 an AD carry. AD carries already have the advantage of being able to siege, output continuous and high damage, take objectives, kite, and waveclear. They will obviously outdamage an assassin if they survive the initial burst so building tank is the only real response.
: This is pretty much what worries me. Melee glass cannon builds/play styles have always been a problem in League since it's never worth it unless it is massively over-tuned. Since ranged champions can kite perfectly because of instant turn around, it's always been a disadvantage to be melee and not build defense. Ever since the Beta it's been preferable to build tanky on melee champs just to survive team fights. Any melee champ that can't survive a team fight is pretty much doomed to be a mindless split push robot (see: Tryndamere, Shaco). The better assassin reworks still allow for big bursts of damage, but add delays to telegraph it more and allow windows to use abilities and items to fight back. Talon got a massive bleed damage that he has to stack up to take effect, Kat got her daggers which give plenty of time falling to notice before they "activate", Leblanc got a mark on her targets that takes a couple seconds to activate. ***But Akali already had this to begin with***. *Her Q has a travel time and her combo already lets her Q mark sit for a couple seconds before she dives in so she can use her Q a second time*. Her combo currently is Q -> wait 3 seconds -> R -> AA -> Q -> R -> AA -> E. Sure she blows people straight up when she's fed, but everyone does that. The complaints were that Akali was too sticky and they couldn't escape, not that they blow up too fast to react. Just the cooldown change to her R would have left plenty of room for counterplay. They had to make it reduced by CDR again on the PBE because she was just that bad with the cooldown change. The shroud duration could also have been reduced without any other changes if it really was too powerful with the stealth changes. Nerfing almost all of her damage and crippling her in-combat sustain just kills her. ***If Akali's damage is too low to burst targets properly, then she blows up instantly and is useless. If you cannot 100 - 0 a target in 1 rotation, then you tank up. If assassin Akali can't get kills and just dies, then tank Akali can at least survive the fight to DPS a carry down and force the enemy to peel her off.***

Both Shaco and Akali are about to become useless after these changes. Funny that the "mini" rework will be affecting them so heavily
: "We removed Akali's MR and Armor from her shroud because it was invisible power"
Akali does not receive resistances while in shroud anymore. She used to get them but this is no longer the case and has not been for quite some time. Some of you seem confused on this.

The dash change was actually supposed to be a buff as placing akali behind the target was supposed to help her proc marks as well as perform different jukes and gain more distance when Ring creeps.

It doesn't have to do with steroid, just where you hit your opponent.
: Soon Brand will be on perma-banned/picked status
He just has too much counterplay to become permabanned. I think just about every assassin counters him and that isn't even including the other mid lane picks he struggles against. He's basically the ideal form of the high damage, low mobility mage.
: Tenacity boots need to provide 35% again
Just put a tenacity cap on all champions so Irelia can't stack the stat. No reason to nerf the boots because of one champion.

: I'm pretty sure it's a deliberate decision to keep this bug in the game. What needs to be done is we need more ways of effectively countering stealth.

The Mandrake ward would be nice, but I'm starting to think that thing is never coming out, and only hits the PBE to give Eve/Shaco players false hope for the ensuing compensation buffs when it's released.
