: Hecarim is sleeper OP right now, and nothing is being done about it.
: lets play guess the champ from their core build
It'd be nice if we had more diverse ap items specifically ap fighter items.

Right now, nothing they do will please people. People ask for things, they give it to them and everyone instantly complains because "we did not ask for this!" when they did or "this isn't what we wanted" but it was just that you couldn't handle the consequences of being given that thing. Or even better wanting one thing that will result in another thing that people are constantly complaining about. Riot hasn't given me a single thing I've wanted, so I don't know what you're talking about. All they have done over the years is take away nearly everything I've enjoyed about this game. They give if they see profit in it, but they don't care about how fun said thing might/might not be. They're basically no different than a soulless corporation at this point. It always amuses me when I see players from other games complain about balance or about not being heard, but they've no clue how good they have it compared to this game.
I get the sentiment (disregarding the whole soulless corp mumbo-jumbo and everything after it) but that's exactly what zeph is getting at (at least it seems like it.) Let's be real what are your interests and wants when those of giants and magnates come before it? Riot being involved with those influences do you really think they'd have the freedom to cater specifically to you? Disregarding those influences why should yours be stronger than any other joe shmoes? Restrictions simply come with the territory they made their bed. But maybe this is indicative of a lack of direction and precision on their part regarding their product....I mean if you want success you'd expect more people being satisfied with your product than not. Of course, you could simply be one of the outliers regarding that satisfaction/success and they could have clear direction and precision.
: In what fucking world is Zed balanced?
A few years back playing Zed felt like it involved more skillful play but with all the changes that've happened he's definitely played more face roll for a while now but I don't feel like he's unbalanced. You can starve him out hella and he'll be useless.
: @Riot: While you're working on the rune changes..
they need to add the option to turn off team chat pings are sufficient enough and the only reason i see it ever used is for harassment or shit-talking
: Thank you Art Team for more Kittys <3

except she doesn't have the sustain or cc (moonfall is the poorest excuse of cc with it's cooldown 4 seconds shy from 30s) to be a true diver and she doesn't have an escape so she isn't an assassin she just has high ap ratios she's neither here nor there especially with all the changes that have been made from patch 7.14 to runes reforged to her match-ups getting buffed and her mana growth cut in half among other things
: if you know they're going to die anyway, don't waste anything on them. it's better if you save the resources for a more competent teammate
: Items That Actually Need Reworks
amen esp to ap fighter items ffs when can we get some proper shit
: All they have to do is remove the "Obscure" mechanic. That's legit all they have to do, but hurr durr oRIgInaLiTY and she has to be uNIqUE to other stealth based champions. We all knew it would be a problem from the start and I'm almost certain most Akali mains didn't like the idea of the Obscure mechanic, yet Riot still shipped it as part of the rework. That really goes to show how much they care about the opinions of their players :D
or swap to ult and reduce duration and/or duration extension of shrowd (maybe increase cooldown too) probably change the ratios on her ult dash ability
: They can say they messed up or that they could have done better all they want. But what did they follow it up with? Even more of the same mistakes. Actions speak louder than words and Riot is currently rupturing my mental eardrums with all the stupid shit spewing out of their patch notes.
LTK KoRo (EUW)
: Good luck in implementing that without making draft phase last 15 minutes
Not really just have each person ban two champions when it's their turn (seems kinda ridiculous but I don't get how you'd effectively get rid of double bans.)

They&#x27;re either OP or unplayable because there&#x27;s no finesse in their kit. Just look at what&#x27;s top tier in the jungle this season (and a lot of top lane too). You tune the damage too high and suddenly the right clickers pass the stat check and are out performing champions with more room for error by a pretty wide margin. Yi is always going to be frustrating to play against unless they rework his kit. He either explodes your team or explodes. No in between. The finesse part about Master Yi is how you are timing your abilities. How many players are timing other champions abilities? Most of the times when your abilities are off cooldown you just use them in order to cheese their opponents despite the timing is right or wrong Sion for instance always tries to cheese you whenever an ability is off cooldown despite the timing is right or wrong as long as he have mana he will spam his abilities on you. Yi however have to time his abilities and must have knowledge on his opponents' abilities in order for him to use his own abilities correctly. Using Alpha Strike to dodge enemies' abilities should be considered a finesse and defines player's mastery. - For instance dodge Jax' Counter Strike, - Dodge Ahri's Charm - You can use Alpha Strike to dodge Darius's Q or use it as a gap closer after he pulls you, - use Alpha Strike when Garen and Darius are about to ult you and kill them before they use their ults second time to kill you. - Xin's 3rd hit will knock up nearby enemies if you Use Alpha Strike when he is about to do that - Use Alpha Strike to dodge Riven's 3rd Broken Wing Alpha Strike used to do extra damage to enemies' pets like Heimer's turrets. Now it probably doesn't and so on Meditate can be used purely as healing which I most often do especially during laning phase - as quick Auto Reset - an enemy is landing very high damage ability but you use Meditate to mitigate most of the damage and auto attack them right after - as a Damage Reduction in certain situations like enemies wasted their hard CC. - Meditate can be combined very well with Stone Plate which gives you a chance to initiate as Master Yi and then meditate for massive damage reduction Wuju Style can be combined with Double Strike for short harassment in melee range However I do think Highlander and Wuju Style need update to make them more interesting since they have very low mastery ceiling and are not fun to use. Highlander feels very lackluster ability as well
Agree. Wuju and Highlander changing would do better for Yi.

: How to fix Akali's shroud.
idg why the shroud isn't her ult if she plays around it just like talon p much
: I build hexdrinker, ninja tabi and oracle, but akali still can not be dueled in the early/mid game.
people hella crunching on shroud I don't get why this isn't her ultinate or why it's duration is so long if she plays with it like talon except more reliably
: ive actually got a question or two. first, regarding minion pathing. in our regular 2 team games, they go forward and eventually hit the enemy nexus. but what happens once my minions beat the directly corrosponding nexus? do they turn left and right at midlane or once they hit the opposing nexus? second, how are the major objectives placed? third, what is the enemy base used for once its defeated? (would be cool if it repaired into your team colored nexus and granted a global team buff)

The reason it takes on an extreme form (as in this situation, in my opinion) is because sexism is so deeply ingrained in our society.

you can't say i don't like her current kit then cry biased edit: bruh my point is you're obviously biased too so don't talk crap about others being biased...you could've said something constructive but it's just more of the same.
: As autofill support myself, i do put twice wards of normal support main and i don't know why xD infact i got 63% winrate on {{champion:143}} since she is my 1 trick when i get autofilled.
Same, I mean it's nice to have vision early game I try to ward tri-bush and a spot above the bush on the opposite side closer to the middle of the river near the dragon pit. The only way you get shit on with vision is if you intentionally walk into trouble so it helps a lot all you have to do is focus on your lane with the security of wards.

: Do people not remember {{item:3504}} ? When the game has become incredibly warped because of an _item_ being incredibly overpowered, it takes them absolute ages to fix it. We're going to be stuck with Stormrazor for a while.
: Honestly? They just need to remove the most degenerate forms of additional damage that were added to the game. The Big List AD/AP given at level 1 from just picking Dom/Sorc/Insp+either %arpen items giving too much free arpen {{summoner:14}} Every single keystone; yes, even Guardian {{item:3147}} {{item:3095}} New and reworked champions that do nothing but instagib. Every facet of this game is now objectively awful because of these. I've never seen Riot so desperate to lose money.
A world w/ no SR and DB....that'd be nice.
: This game is a dumbed down blood bath
Unvictus (NA)
: As a fellow Katarina main, I would like to start by saying thank you for taking the time to put this well written post together in order to get some kind of a reply from Riot concerning their take on her current state. I’d like to follow by saying that I am so happy with her rework and unlike some Kat players, a rework is the last thing I want. That being said, I agree with pretty much every single thing you’ve said. Her current state really worries me because she is outperformed by literally every other assassin for all the reasons you mentioned. Leblanc and Rengar were reverted basically to their former selves, meanwhile Kat is the only one left with so many delays in her kit. The two things I would like to see changed most are the delay on shunpo and the drop times on daggers. For the same reason you listed I just don’t think the delay on shunpo is needed and seems to only exist to make her more clunky. Dagger drop times should be lowered especially later into the game as she really struggles to burst a squishy without getting one shot while waiting for a dagger to drop. I would hope at the very least we as a community of Katarina players can get Riot’s attention so that they may know how we feel about her current state. Hopefully this leads to a constructive conversation and we can get Kat into a good spot for all.
At least she ain't as bad as Diana.
: Can we just revert shen and look at his real pro play problem?
AdeJBug (NA)
: What if... control wards shown by duskblade needed 2 melee hits instead of 1
It'd be cool if it just revealed wards and concealed your presence instead of one-shotting wards (it's pretty much sweepers with bonus damage and lethality anyway.)
: Master Yi is way over powered
: Normals are too competitive
I'm hella competitive but I'm not flame/report happy unless you're deliberately hindering unit cohesion throughout the course of the game and talking shit to others then I'm down to report. Why are they competitive? They want to learn, improve, and win on a game they spend time on (otherwise why would they play.) What could be done? I don't know man but it's not like we're the reason these people are unhappy and there ain't much ado about it besides confronting them, muting them, or reporting if not all of the above for the respective conflict or harm they cause. I'm not a therapist and I don't play so I can listen/see whoever whine/cry/whatever. If anything I wish there was an option to mute team chat because people deliberately try to break your heart and shit on it over nothing (more often than not) which is not fun at all besides it doesn't really matter because all that seems to be typed is shit talking (if it's not on you it's about someone else or the enemy team) and you still got pings that are effective enough for communication. Edit: I'm talking show team chat in options right next to show all chat...if R6S and other games can have this kind of QoL option why can't League?

: You want a broken item added to Summoner's Rift, how is anyone supposed to change your mind? For people that read my reply and might not know what Moonflair Spellblade gives: 50 AP 50 Armor 50 Magic Resist 35% Tenacity (not that tenacity matters nowadays, just wanted to give a complete insight) All of this for...... wait for it ..... 2400 gold! This item gives a retarded amount of stats for its price.
you already have useful offensive items (along w/ hybrid items and defensive items) in sr clearly favoring ads (from essence reaver, duskblade, steraks, titanic, and so forth) what's wrong w/ an actually useful mage item that isn't just raw ap like pretty much every other mage item especially for ap fighters who already have crap for itemization? i'm pretty sure it'd be fine given increased cost and adjusting the stats (primarily tenacity)

: Hate is a strong word, I will say I think he needs to resign as he does not have the best vision for the game, he's effectively ruined my will to play the game, I don't hate him he is a human and we all have flaws. He just does not relies the impact he is having on the health of the game. I think in his mind he is making the game better because of pro play and the income generated but when he "ruined" WoW it was because of similar reasons as to why LoL is starting to tank, world of warcrafts class system and balance has gotten WAY better since he left, there is no doubt in my mind this man needs to go. Just don't hate him ;P
