: Neeko is a lesbian: Let's please calmly discuss it.
As a very "normal" person by modern standards goes, I'd say well... "Why does it matter?" Because frankly it shouldn't matter. As was already stated, the characters isn't stereotypical and isn't in your face about. A lot of the lines could just be played off as cutesy in another universe. I think it's also important that you mentioned that a lot of champions have no sexual identity. And frankly, that is probably how it should be. I'm a {{champion:24}} main and I also love his story to death. But the thing is, his motives and such leave him with little time for a personal life. He has no time for love or flirting or anything of that sort. And I think many champions are one and the same in that they frankly have either no time or no interest in that part of life. In addition, there are several "god" characters in the lineup. And this isn't Mythological Grecian Godhood. There's a lot of wanderers and the like in the lineup as well, which don't have time or interest in love for any number of reasons, like the Shadow Isle champions. Story is a big part of a character and sexual orientation isn't really necessary to tell the majority of those stories. It doesn't really seem to be a necessary part of Neeko's story yet, but time will tell.
: Actually, no, you're wrong. unless you mean buffing defense for EVERYTHING, which seems infinitely more complex. Damage isn't just high to champions, it's too high for objectives, for baron, for dragon, for jungle camps, and for minions. And by nerfing strong champions, you indirectly buff weaker ones. The opposite of this is how damage creep is created, and that's why the process needs to be reversed. I don't necessarily blame you for not understanding that, but Riot really should...
Too much armor penetration and true damage in the game too at this point, which is contributing on top of the already high damage.

: One Morde thread to rule them all
New Passive: Movement Speed is set to 355. Mordekaiser Cannot Gain movement speed from items. Movement Speed from items is converted into health. Mordekaiser Cannot be Knocked-Up, Displaced, Snared, or Slowed. Polymorph, Silence, Stuns work the same. Maybe it sounds unbalanced, but frankly... It makes him have that whole "I'm THE JUGGERNAUT" schtick, and being locked into a movement speed gives reasonable counterplay to him when you're not slowed/cc'ed yourself xd.

: Couldn't agree more. I remember back in Season 2/3 when I was active on the boards a lot, you'd frequently see Morello in there mixing it up with us run of the mill players, explaining decisions, taking feedback/criticism, and giving open honest answers about what he thought about it. You used to be able to pull up the red tracker and see a post every half hour or so. Now you'll maybe get a red post every two to three days.
Welcome to playerbase inflation. Riot has many, many more employees, but the game has millions more than it did in those days and the money flows well for esports, so naturally there's less direct community talking. I would argue that it is not for lack of time however. Several of the people that were in Riot way back when who are still in Riot don't have more life stuff necessarily. On the other hand though, due to the size of the game now, you have a huge number of "things" to do that you didn't have to do in the past. I don't want to be specific due to each person at Riot having a different job, but in general, we are given "Ask Riots" as a way to explain things we don't like. The problem is that they often handle those questionaires like a politician, they rarely actually SAY anything about the issue. And when there finally is an issue they address, it's addressed with a bandaide that becomes a bruise with time. My friend's list has not looked this desolate since Season 4 Assassin meta.
: Ok this is more than a little ridiculous. His old lore wasn't a novel or that well established. Actually was it even more than a couple of paragraphs of text? Like I'd understand if the characters and his family were from a novel or serial comic which took effort to build up and thus players had time to get attached but seriously? A couple of paragraphs... {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}
Here's the thing. Watching and observing lore in movies, books, and art is very outsider esque and people tend to still manage to connect to it. Varus' lore was simplistic, yes, but there's one key difference. You _played_ as Varus. And when you play as a character you get to hear their thoughts and emotions and reactions to the world around them. "Actions speak louder than words."

: I think the strategy here is to give up early farm but stay in range of exp, then farm what you can under the tower. If he doesn't establish a level lead on you in the first few levels, you'll be able to survive his jump and pop him up when he dives you under the tower. The key is not to take early poke, even if it means missing early CS.
I tried to do that and still got pushed out constantly because he'd just chuck spears at me when I'd farm under tower. His wave was pushed the entire game.
: Only 2 things I do at that point, either roam to a fed lane and try to get some assist or kills or do a desperation fight before he completes a item. DK if it wouldhv helped in your case. Mostly I just leave that lane and try to even out turret trade.
I was level 4 when he was 7 and level 7 when he was 11.

OR SOME FUCKING WINGS ON HIS Q!? That'd be awesome. But honestly, I think the skin I've been wanting is a cyberpunk mixed with magic theme jax. His ult makes armor pieces push out over his body/cloak, and his eyes glow brightly. His q would have a jet booster or something, his w would have some kind of particle effect relating to electricity or neon something and his e would deploy a barrier that would visually deflect auto attacks in another direction, maybe spinning around him instead of above him.

He's a single target duelist with a multitarget stun for better teamfighting. He has the potential to carry, but when it comes down to it, what he does best is single target. There's more than enough multitarget things out there. He has clear counters, counterplay, and clear situations where he falls short. He's never overall great because depending on the enemy team, he might be good early, mid, or late, but it's largely dependent on the enemy team. Also he falls short against mages often enough because his e is so crucial to his kit, allowing him to survive precious seconds, especially in lategame. Overall, he's mostly fine, maybe could do with tiny buffs and tiny nerfs to other things, but there are other champions with bigger problems, which is also likely the underlying problem of why he won't get a visual update soon. There's just too many other priorities.
: The problem is they did give him a slight visual lift a while back (Season 6 i think). Also, inb4 {{champion:10}}

: i think they could do something with varus. if i remember correctly, they didnt say exactly what the "power" he was guarding was. and the void has been known to corrupt people before ({{champion:90}} ) so im thinking that varus was really guarding a gate of some sort to the void. that may have oppened accidentaly or just randomly, and must be guarded lest people get ahold of the voids immense magical energy
Varus' old lore seemed to suggest it was power that was more related to the Darkin than Void, but either way a good idea.

: Will there ever be a big Void event?
Jax is the last Icathian and is essentially looking for someone worthy to help him cleanse it, aka the void if you read into his updated lore a bit. So I guess technically he's lumped in with those characters too. On another note, a pve mode would be amazing.

: Assassins' stat focus flawed?
tbh I want that last item for Jax since he's always struggled in the modern lategame due to having no form of penetration usually
: In what way is PD Mallet Yasuo healthy for the game?
It's not the items that are a problem, it's the champion. We've known that for a long time.

: because balance is not easy when you compare internal testing to PBE and PBE to live riot is incompetent, sure, but complaining about anything on its immediate release is pointless. every champion we've gotten for years has needed tuning except for vel'koz, who just happened to be balanced
PBE is almost exclusively for bug testing since there's such a wide gap in player ability on pbe. You'll have diamonds with bronzes vs. golds and plats. Also PBE serves the purpose of fixing many bugs for instance the jayce w bug that was causing autos to do like 940% damage or something ridiculous. I'm not complaining as much about release as I am just stating how it's a trend that only seems to get worse.
AhmCha (NA)
: I just realized that things are reversed
: While this was partially satire, it's just hilarious to me that they succeed on so many fronts except for balance.
also might I mention esports makes a ton of money for them and when there's good balance, there's better champion diversity which makes games more interesting which brings in more viewers
Sciela (NA)
: You seem to not realize that balance was ***never*** their priority. Not now, nor ever before. Their one and only priority is money, and balance isn't lucrative. They will do whatever they can to create FOTM waves, making a particular class or champ broken, to get whales to spend money. Balance doesn't make money, so it won't happen.

: - 3 Lifesteal Quints (1.5% each) = 4.5% lifesteal - Vampirism Mastery = 2% lifesteal - Warlord's Bloodlust Mastery = up to 20% lifesteal - {{item:3072}} = 20% lifesteal - {{item:3812}} = 15% lifesteal - {{item:3146}} = 15% omnivamp - {{item:3074}} = 12% lifesteal - {{item:3074}} = 12% lifesteal - {{item:2140}} = 15% lifesteal - Die: passive grants 100% lifesteal - {{item:3065}} = +25% healing power - Runic Armor Mastery = +8% healing power (Apparently, these two combine multiplicatively, not additively, giving +35% healing instead of just +33%) Totals: 129 - 156% lifesteal while alive (Depending on health for Warlord's Bloodlust) While dead: 264 - 291% lifesteal (I was a little off) Also, with this build, Sion's basic attacks deal 497 damage, healing him for up to 775 hp/attack while alive and up to 1446 hp/attack +29% of the target's max health per attack (lifesteal applies to the additional +10% of the target's max health as damage per attack from Sion's passive). So, against an enemy with 4000 max health, Sion will heal for 1446 + 1160 (2606 hp/attack).
you still need armor pen somehwhere. Lifesteal is based on damage dealt, not simply on hit life like in diablo or irelia. You would need some armor pen to heal effectively
: A full lifesteal build Sion can have 297% lifesteal (during passive) and heal for 1400+ per hit. Late game Doom Bots teamfights, he can wipe out the entire enemy team as long as he can punch people quickly enough that he out-heals his passive health decay.
How do you get 197% extra lifesteal? Build please?
: Armor and Magic pen items are getting nerfed and will be far less relevant early and mid game so the resistances are going to be huge for him in terms of survivability.
Nasus is meant to be strong in the late mid and late game though...

: On-Hit effects and On-Attack effects are different. Lightslinger is, in its simplest terms, a built-in Guinsoo's. It does damage and procs on-hit effects, like what Guinsoo's does. Before this, Lucian could get three procs of stuff; one from his attack, one from his Lightslinger, and one from Guinsoo's since Lightslinger proc'd it. Lightslinger is an extra on-hit, not an extra attack.
Then why does Lightslinger proc stuff like Braum shield? This isn't a very clearly defined mechanic which is why I posted what I did. I don't mind Lucian nerfs at all, really. But if there's a difference between on hit and on attack there needs to be a clearly defined difference and not this awkwardness.
