: Mages?
What makes them so broken is that you can't dodge.
: This is embarrassing but I don't know how to build items correctly
Hrm... Well... Jhin, I can't help you with. Most champions, you look at what they need to do their job (eg damage, tankiness) and what they need to counter current enemies (tenacity, needed survival, etc). Experiment, see when power spikes occur, and be observant of stat differences.
: Addressing OP champions with average winrates that remain nerf free
That's a possibility. I think the biggest factor is the matchmaking system - game will try to set player winrates at 50% and your champion pick is your game. Also winrates in general seem dominated by inexperienced players on champions, plat+ data or not. Made further natural by mains being moved to 50% by matchmaking.
: How do u win as a Melee against a ranged mage or adc
This heavily depends on what champion you're playing. Some like Irelia have the right tools to engage, others don't. If you mean Ryze, he's just way overturned.
: Please can we have another map ? I'm bored of summoner rift...
The game is dependent on it as a constant for it's balancing, so as a serious option probably not.
: Question on buying Hurricane as ADC
Can build both on Ashe if you start IE. It's the offensive choice and you adapt to the game.
: I find it hilarious that people think top laners complain too much.

Oh honey, you should try playing adc. You can't even farm while doing everything right when you have a derp support. Every role loses when they have four losers, almost always with three.
: I thought 8 % true dmg on conqueror Whats pushing tanks away.Why arent tanks good after its gone ?
They aren't? What's your information based on? Is this coming from a streamer like the idiot idea mages are pushing tanks around?
: Nerf Caitlyn
I don't mind the trap number but I wish their activation was slower and turrets should disable ones placed next to them (no traps hidden behind turrets).

PD's existence is a middle finger to nerfing assassin damage. Boards went over this years ago. DD is effective damage reduction if you can heal the delayed damage. While true it is not flat DR, it is effectively DR in most situations.
These boards don't go over anything. Try buying the item. It doesn't reduce the damage you take.
Cdore (NA)
: Why do some non tank items have the best Tank actives/ passives?
Deaths Dance doesn't reduce the damage you take, it only delays it. And because tanks aren't the only thing that need survivability. PD's existence is a middle finger to nerfing assassin damage.
: How to build vs a kill lane as an adc with an aggressive supp like leona
Sir Gusi (EUW)
: What sup champs are strong roamers
No, no, NO. Playing an adc with these is hell. Win your lane, that's more important. Do not abandon your adc. You're not "spreading your influence", you're throwing your primary late game carries farm under the bus. Roaming requires opportunity - and is better into the midgame after a turret has gone down and there's more room for farming.
Rokuroú (EUW)
: Senna is a bit nuts
She has too many strengths. New champions tend to under perform where they'll settle, she'll be too strong once people are good with her.
: As a jungle main i've never felt so much pressure in my life
You do have to take a scuttle but not much is required besides that. Jungle is the easiest role to play from behind though. Kinda depends on what jungler you're using, but it is an option to farm to the next power spike and then gank.

Isn't that the answer to everything lmao? Same thing with Yi. I try, but me playing as an ADC in the lower ranks, it's hard to convince supports and teammates to play a healthy and balanced team comp with some CC. Everybody wants to go damage. Even worse, my mid lane who I have no participation in, feeds their laner so hard and they just mosey on down to my lane like "What's up for dinner?" and kills me without using R. They be so fed that even if I do get some CC on her, I can't kill her. She heals it back or Shinpo's out.
Why yes it is. Anyway for adc you should build maw against Kat.
: About Katarina
You need cc, and someone who doesn't use the cooldown recklessly.

No one consideres her a handicap, drop the self pity. Sej isn't even bad at clearing and ganking early and only gets stronger as the game goes on. No, she's garbage. Your experiences in-game with her don't matter. They're irrelevant. Completely useless as evidence on the champion's balance.
More valuable than winrates and people who don't know that correlation doesn't equal causation. 100% of people who breathe die.
: She has been ~44% winrate since 9.19 with a low playrate. It's been a while since Sejuani wasnt considered a handicap for your team.
Yeah, and from playing her she's still very powerful. No one consideres her a handicap, drop the self pity. Sej isn't even bad at clearing and ganking early and only gets stronger as the game goes on.

You don't harass you push and deny cs. And then harass with auto.

You are mostly wrong on this post. With the changes to jg xp, once enemy jg gets foothold in your jg, you are probably done for. You get that extra cs when you ignore this scenario, but 9/10 times you just turned game into 4v5. If your jg is pinging you to show up, it's cause you need to show up.
It's not my job to win your jungle.

The bigger question is why do teams need these overpowered objectives in the first place? It's not like it's impossible to snowball to victory without them. I remember back when gold was the only thing it gave, and that was enough to snowball your team to victory most of the time. If your team isn't able to end the game with just gold, then you don't deserve to win.
Gold is stronger than the dragon buffs though, because you can tailor it to what stats you want.
: why are bork adcs so bursty?
...I assume you're talking about Lucian?
: What are you supposed to do against a Nocturne top lane?
From what I know of Nocturne, you'd want to wait for him to use passive on minions. And any ignite top must be outscaled.
: LB is a burst mage, so yes. I considered her a mage. She builds Gunblade into mage items. Vlad is also definitely a mage. He builds mage items. Protobelt, Deathcap, Spellbinder, etc. He specifically said, and I quote > have you been watching worlds? the number of non mages mid is insane.
: How the fuck are you supposed to play jungle without feeding and be actually able to enjoy the game?
Yeah, junglers start with less combat stats in their items and level slower. You need to learn the stat difference, that's probably what's killing you.
: Am i the only one who think Qiyana is probably the fairest assassin on this game ?
Oh, I do agree. She does quite a bit of damage but her kit is linear. And all the other ad assassins do the same damage anyway. Nerf duskblade.
: In what world or scenario is Dorans blade better than dorans shield?
Anytime you fight the enemy champion. Anytime past 10 minutes.
: How can I stop playing terribly?
You have to focus on the game. Ask yourself constantly what are you doing and what should you be doing.
: I have Underestimated Tanks and other Champions
Kiting! But generally you don't engage on them alone.
: Unpopular Opinion: Overgrowth is fine.
More hp on low hp champions isn't more impactful. It's not more likely to make the difference, the opposite because you're still squishy - and champions do better when played to their strengths.
Zatenji (EUW)
: There is no way to learn and play this game.
League can be very streaky in it's match making. The worst I recall for myself was 1 win of 22 games.
: That would be true except there's letarly mage dominating every role in this game
: Do junglers have too much impact?
: Bad at Ahri
Teemo like many champions can be countered with Zhonya's, you can negate his DoTs with it. Aside from that get a sweeper and use your innate sustain for random shrooms.
: I mean. The issue is that damage is just too high. So high in fact that it just straight out beat defense and utility at all points in the game. A {{champion:555}} {{champion:119}} Beats a {{champion:22}} {{champion:201}} every time, without fail.
No they don't lol. Especially not after Ashe's buffs. She'll poke draven, lock down Pyke easy if he moves forward. Braum is bad news for draven attacking her back. If Braum jumps into the stun they could lose but so long as he walls draven's Q they'll win. Post 6 they have the stunlock kill, just build up Ashe q on minions first.

: Why does nobody build mr?
Mix of ad also effecting towers, minions, jungle, ad being universal, hp being effective against mages but not against ad, spells can be dodged autos can't. Armor items have the better passives, movespeed buff or damage or slow. Spirit Visage only competes if the champion has built in sustain and other two tank mr items have low hp for no reason.

: Balance is a stupid term for a moba. Gamehealth should be core to gameplay discussions.
Mhm. In practice, fun is more valuable than fair in games. What is fun depends on the player - most players want action, personal expression, and a side of strategy. The game needs a variety of options for its players to achieve this, and to avoid repetitive gameplay it needs them to possess parity.
