: Thanks for your reply. I don't mean to be picky but: > "Though Qiyana was only seven years old, she mastered advanced techniques within weeks, while **some of her older sisters ** had yet to grasp the basics after years of study. > **One by one, Qiyana surpassed her sisters in the elemental arts,** and the more she progressed, the more resentful she became" The first sentence seems to indicate that, as you said, some of her sisters could still be better than her (no real indication though, they're just not noobs). However, doesn't the second one mean that Qiyana eventually got better than all of them? Or am I over-interpreting here?
We don't know alot about this new faction. They could have different kinds of magic we still don't know about or some other kind of combat that could rival her.

: why do people buy early access games?
If a game looks to be worth the price even unfinished I will pick it up. I've been play Risk of Rain 2 and even in early access that game is so fun. And I figured when Pubg fully released it would have been more optimized and less buggy, but even though it's not I still had my fun.

: Has Riot stopped doing animated Login Screens?
Personally I miss when they used to remix the original League theme for champion themes on their logins.
Nhika (NA)
: Here are the reasons why we can't have 100% pure utility supports.
The reason is really that the support items are giving to much gold. Old supports functioned off of so little gold they relied on their kits raw numbers to preform. Now that supports get a good supply of gold they can purchase items that allows them to scale, something they couldn't do before. So of course mages like Annie, brand, or lux are being played. Once they get an item or 2 they have out scaled a utility champ like Leona. And when Riot tries to give utility champs items to scale with the items themselves are meta defining and over powered. Now those items need to be stronger then standard items because a utility champ wasn't designed to scale.
nm1010 (NA)
: Standardizing support income/starting items was a big buff to mages in bot imo. If they didn't have an item that gave them gold, wards, damage, and mana sustain all at the same time then they would have trade offs with traditional supports. But because they can get everything they want from 1 source it makes them have very little downside.
This is the biggest problem. Old supports we're valuable because they could function off of little income. If you were to take a mage bot against a traditional support you would almost insta lose because there was no way a lux with no items is beating a Leona or a Sona with no items.
: One of Riot's biggest mistakes was indulging in mages as "supports," enforcing damage over utility
It's s bigger problem of mages having a loosing match up against most assassin's that are played mid (or at the very least having no solo kill pressure on them) and the fact that supports get much more gold now then they used to. This creates the environment where a mage will have an easier time in Lane going bot and not falling behind in items like they should for giving up a solo Lane.
: Remember Doom Bots?
The game needs more PvE stuff. Like Doom bots or the star guardian and Odyssey events.
Salron (NA)
: Windwall would be useless if it didn't block until the cast animation ends It's supposed to be a reactive spell, not a proactive one Windwall cast animation is about 0.25s Imagine if spellshields like Sivirs' had that delay, they'd be garbage, same idea here
Summon Tibbers has .25s cast time and people think that it's instant. Having it on a delay wouldn't be as big of deal as your making it out to be.
: Yeah, tell me on how that 35% wr champ is so strong. lmao
taliyah had a 36% win rate on release, but if you filtered by people with over 50 games played it jumped to over 60%. She was busted and very few people understood how to play her to capitalize on it.
: Yuumi is an Item, not a champion
In pane she does seem weak. But late game she might be the best enchanter to have on a team. Outside of Lulu for an assassin shut down, no Nami in a pick comp nobody else comes close.

: You are implying what op has done was intentional? A rammus jungle will always do pretty sucky damage when on the losing team, especially in the onesided cluster that is low elo where one team just extends their lead further and further while not knowing how to end...which inflates the game time and differences in scores... Wards is also a low elo issue, most people don't even know the #4 button exists let alone look at the darn map and respond to pings. Why should this individual be punished for being one of the many to not have yet learned an important game mechanic. Lets also go back to the fact that rammus cannot solo carry, he NEEDS his laners to not be far behind. He doesn't win the fights via ganks... he just forces the fights to happen, if he cannot force any fights where he wins then he is useless and the player shouldn't be held accountable (especially in low elo) until either A: enemies make a mistake or B: teammates do what they should be doing and start fighting to hold towers and hit power spikes (Where the rammus player should try to do his best to help)
A rammus would do more damage running it down Lane and pressing w on each of his deaths. This dude had to be trolling or just afk.
: Dodge is and will never be accepted, and is against the rules. Sorry bud if you are going to dodge riot wont make it easier,
It's not against the rules. Sure there is a penality for dodging. if dodging was against the rules it would be force you back into champ select or make you wait untill the game gets remade, not remake the lobby and reset the queue.

It's more of a convenience thing. It's not like it will be a huge time save, but more relogging is an inconvenience that could be easily circumvented.

Difficult doesn't mean impossible and I'm sure there are a few players that primarily use the map to aim globals. Adding in an option in settings to turn it on would hurt nobody.

: Riot vs. the Boards
Riot should really be more active here on the boards. It has been a problem since before the boards, they have always preferred riddit. I remember when they removed the old forums and started the boards one of the big reasons for doing so was to help them get better organized and respond to feed back. But over the years there have been fewer and fewer red posts, and when they do post it's almost always on a meme or fanart.

Unless there would be like 20 bans it won't make a difference. URF makes too many champs cancer to play against.
: Please revert Taliyah.
I wish they would revert her to her release state and then rebalance her like that instead. There were few things as satisfying as landing a ln E W combo with the old casting, and lockout on W. Plus it was allowed to be stronger because it was way harder to land.
