: Since when does Riot listen outside their own echo chamber when money isn't involved?
The boards have their own echo chamber. Because it thinks *all* its ideas are good ones most of the time.

I am fully aware on the definiton. That is why I used it in the sentence above and I stand by it.

: Why is "homophobia" a reportable offence?
The suffix phobia has multiple meanings. I agree with your stance on the matter but as you say, I carry no ill will towards the people personally. Personally I think a more accurate term could be used for hatred towards gay people. But homophobia came first so it's here to stay. Edit: almost forgot. Xenophobia is also a rather old term that has a similar use.

: So what about {{item:3031}} and {{item:3165}}? Both of those are "rush build" on a whole pile of champions. Look; I'm not trying to say Ardent Censor is fine on live. It was broken in worlds, it's overpowered now, but gutting it simply because it's must build on enchanter supports isn't a good idea. Hell, gutting it in general is probably bad, although I'd accept it if it was just getting nuked until the preseason updates. Enchanter supports should have power. Tank supports can decide the course of a teamfight. Mage supports eventually graduate into mages in their own right. There's no reason why enchanter supports should just be a minor boost to the ADC when it'd be a major boost if it was a mage or tank support. An ADC/support combo should be roughly twice as powerful as the same ADC solo, regardless of whether that support is an enchanter, a mage, or a tank.
The main difference between ardent and other rush first items... Is that ardent made your carries rush items scale better as well as you scale better. So therefore your carries rush items outdid other classes rush items

It synergizes too well with ADCs. You always want it. It's bad design.
: Gutting Ardent Is The Healthiest Thing Done In Awhile
Only thing truly gutted on the item is the onhit damage and the early atk speed. Late game you won't notice too much of a difference. Also why can't we reach that sweet spot? It's always broken or garbage with a lot of items I notice.
: >If you counter attack back, then everyone is an offender AND a victim and everyone get's punished. So when someone comes up to you and tries to mug you, you should probs just take the beating because otherwise you'll get mugged AND go to jail, right? Ya no, so Riot clearly has 0 sense of true justice.
You keep equating real life to virtual situations like they are equivalent...
: Will Irelia still be a lich bound to a phylactery by Soraka?
Little-known lore bit. I applaud you for knowing this good sir.
: The question is: Will you still go for thunderlords or are there better options? I'll be doing some testing on the PBE. (You can do that as well if you are lvl 30 and honor 3+ now btw)
I am actually doing that rn. I am currently testing Press the Attack. But I think the Sorcery tree is overall better becuase he needs the AP imo.
: if you get autoed 3 times by vayne you die? yup thats balance.

Eedat (NA)
: Yeah then Azir either dashes to his soldiers or just presses R on you....
Pssh. On you. A good Azir shuffles you AND your jungler under his tower for a double. :P
: Why compensate losing range...with more range?
Elementary, my dear Mystic. Because before, I could Q to you and keep hitting you with autos. Now, I can only Q and hit you with the thrust, but my soldier can't attack you anymore.
: No but the hitbox of the Q got buffed a LOT, and at the speed that his soldiers jump on you, you require lightning reflexes if you want to stand a chance at dodging them... I was standing behind my tower and Azir could just easily poke me and chunk me from outside turret range...
It's the "thrust" the soldiers do at the end of their Q with their spears. They did it to compensate for his overal Q range nerf
: Soraka should use her goat senses for her troubles ;-;

I actually wouldn't mind if my fav enchanter, Soraka, was reworked.

: Who is a good pick that can out poke Ori? (aside from Xerath because i don't think he is very good atm) Even hiemer struggles vs Ori I'vs watched good old HiesenDong get smashed in lanes by Ori and hes like the best Laning Champion I can think of!
Hmm I play Azir a ton, and prerework he could outpoke her. But he wasn't a good pick till after the rework, and he can't necessarily outpoke her now. It's a skill lane now. Also Heimer isn't that great a laning champ against poke champs. For example current Azir can decimate Heimer. I can see why Ori can as well.
: Jhin & The Theater of Cruelty
Phew, you get a cookie for that insight.
: Top laner is the hard working dad who has only time for his family at the weekends Support is the caring mother who always helps out there children, doesnt matter how stupid there decisions may be. Mid laner is the teenager who just cares about his ego. ADC is the little kid that doesnt do much until it gets older. Jungler is the strange uncle who visits the family from time to time. Feel free to answer me with your own version of LoL-Family.
Based on your descriptions I have created the perfect LoL family. Top lane {{champion:201}} Support {{champion:40}} Mid lane {{champion:141}} ADC {{champion:81}} Jungler {{champion:427}}
: The top laner is the older sibling, theyre occasionally nice and friendly but are usually up in their room doing god knows what, and might occasionally scream at their dad, mom, or younger siblings. The mid laner is that middle child who's constantly having to with the other kid's crap and is just an overall wild card. The Adc is the baby, whos may act like a sweetheart from time to time, but often screams and screams. The support is the mom, who only has time for the baby but still tries to keep the map clear of FoW. The jg is the dad, who's always out working but occasionally helps out, usually bot since a happy wife is a happy life.
: > "Finally, people believe that if there is not perfect balance in the game currently, it means that Riot doesn't know how to balance their game. First of all, people have the audacity to assume that they know far better than Riot despite probably never working on a game balance team in their life. Take a step back and realize that Riot has been doing this for years, and they most likely have a better understanding of how they want their game to function than 99% of people on these boards, including myself. >If Riot hasn't changed something that you think is wrong, then the issue is either more complicated and challenging to fix than you comprehend, or they want this to be in the game and you need to adapt to it. It's still their game after all." So first you tell everyone that riots balance teams are above and beyond human intelligence and that we're not capable of comprehending their thoughts or understanding the game better than them, but then IMMEDIATELY say "Well even if that's not the case then fuck you and your opinions it's their game." Bruh... Played PBE with a bronze balance team worker that was on the team in charge of Evelynn. Took her top lane with exhaust, fed his ass off vs a GP, then while no direct toxicity came from him you could tell he was definitely abit moody with our team. Yes truly understood the most intricate details of Evelynn and knew the champion inside and out, far beyond what a lowly league of legends player could understand. An intellectual god among men.
He may not have been trying ya know... Not excusing the feeding, but you can't use anecdotal evidence as if it was hard statistical data for example.

: Who would you take Presence of Mind on?
Hmm. I may try it on some mana hungry mages.
: Ori and Taliyah are your examples of good mage design? Ori bullies super hard early and scales really well, she's a generalist with no bad matchups. Taliyah spams Q to push waves and just roams. Unless she tries for a sneaky E, W combo she either just harasses with Q or simply ignores the other laner.
Generally Ori can get bullied by someone who can outpoke her, but yeah, she is a generalist and her matchups are poor but will in no way mean you can't play the lane. Unless maybe you're against Xerath.
: False, the OP does not agree they are priced weirdly. Check his comments in this thread, he only goes as far as saying "maybe" they are slightly overpriced. He never commits to the belief, it is only a tactic in order to offer the illusion of compromise. You are wrong.
Even if that were the case, you are assuming the OP's motives in making this thread. Quite frankly he could have stated his opinion then peaced out. But instead he is showing a willingness to be persuaded in the other direction by offering a platform for the opposing side. Hence the last part of the OP. What you, and by extension I did is go off on a tangent about the OPs motives as if we could know. By the OP it is clear he believes they should cost RP. But he is flexible on the price and that is all we know concretely.
: Dismissing dissenting viewpoints as emotional does not support the claim that emote prices are reasonable, sorry champ.
Ah. But I dismissed your viewpoint as both emotional AND inaccurate. Why? Let's see. First of all, OP never said the prices for emotes are fine. In fact the OP agrees they are priced weirdly. If you cannot read the OP to see that your statement is inaccurate on their stance, why should I put weight in the rest of your arguments?

: "$10 emotes are great" "Dynamic queue is the best thing since sliced bread" "Actually, Yasuo _isn't_ an obnoxious champ to play against" "Tencent is not only good for Riot, but in fact the entire western world should be subjugated by Chinese totalitarian rule" "The TSA is your friend" "Bandwidth caps are necessary; ISP's simply cannot afford it" That's you. You're like the embodiment of all anti-consumer practices that exist.
You sound pretty emotional buddy. Good arguments don't come from that

: Why should emotes be free?
I agree in that Emotes are overpriced. Whether or not they should be IP is a whole other topic. But I am not likely to get emotes at any rate. There are no Soraka or Azir emotes so I'm not interested.
: Riot is always, always testing how dumb their playerbase is. Keep that in mind. They keep increasing the prices, they sell a visual update as the most expensive skin ever, they sell recolours you could make yourself in 5 minutes on MS Paint, and now this. Don't blame Riot, blame the playerbase who keeps giving money to each of those things.
: SA if they can't group, Rhaast if they group. SA gives tools to consistently pick enemies off the edges, Rhaast gives that heavy engage. Overall Rhaast is simply too good compared to SA though. That difference is an extreme one. Rhaast benefits: % damage (in a health-heavy meta), knockup, spellvamp/heal SA benefits: Mobility. That's it.

I agree. I am not spending money on emotes when I could be spending on occasional skins. Unless there are Soraka or Azir emotes. Gimme.

Illiowhatever didn't even exist for that long. So I don't see why you're complaining. I got to complain, because I want my champion to be my champion and not a rip off anime using her kit and voice lines. That is a higher average than Illaoi who has had one skin, her starting one, in about 2 years of existence. Also, Kat has 9 skins, Mercenary, Bilgewater, High Command, Sandstorm, Warring Kingdoms, PROJECT, Red Card, Kitty Kat, and Slay Belle, in addition to the new one she gets because riot is like, "lel, know who could use ANOTHER skin? our favorite not-ahri waifu kat!" Several of them very high quality skins. Go cry me a river, I have absolutely 0 sympathy right now. And she is not your champion, she is Riot's.

But skins tend to cover a wide variety so that different mains can find something they like. For examplr I am a huge Soraka fan. But that doesn't mean I love all her skins. Doesn't make me dislike her or rito. I also don't expect to love every Soraka skin or else cry that Rito ruined Soraka. That's just ridiculous.
