So you can still jungle without smite, but only as a last resort item.

: I think support Sion has been meta since his rework.
Yes, I discovered him even before official release and got to Plat with support sion, even though people were FURIOUS with me for hitting their minions to poke with E, playing a troll pick, etc. But then they saw me go 9/1/20 and then they stfu XD
: Why do you teach new players to build armour on Ashe against Nunu?

No. Suck it up and play the game. Make up your mind about whether you care more about your time or your LP.

Playing non meta is how i discovered Support Sion, Support Ashe, Support Annie, and Support Veigar WAY before any pros did. Got to Plat with these picks too. So no, you can't tell me how to play, meta sheep. I climb my way.

: Just Curious about Birthday rewards?
Bruh not to be rude but literally everyone has a birthday. It's not that special. Imagine if Riot gave out free shit for everyone's birthday. All 200+ million of us. Yeah, even if it was a $1 gift, they are losing out on $200 million dollars PER YEAR. Not happening bro. (Unless Riot wants to prove me wrong then either way I win too)

He has consistently been a solid pick at ~55% win rate in higher elo play for a ling time. Usually if you find a champion to be too weak when you play them, you might not be playing them "properly". Oops my break's over. Anyway, you can look up vids or guids on the web to see what you're missing.

Avid tester of the NPE, would rather make new accounts when introducing new players, etc. OE is definitely busted but BE system is giving more than before. In terms of game feel it is lacking but aside from that there's nothing relevant to this conversation that is wrong with BE. You just mad.
Sinneli (NA)
: Thank you, Riot.
Ayyy fellow Ahri patch player! Yeah looking back it's amazing how far we've come. The game was cozier, the community was friendlier, and the competition wasn't as fierce back in the good ol' days, but man oh man I used to have only 1 skin period (from the 400 RP) because I never spent money. We have just about double the content since that time, and it's amazing that Riot has been able to keep up somewhat with the balance. Some things I don't agree with, but at least it's not a cash grab game, at least it's not Blizzard, and at least we have a chance to talk with other Rioters in a "casual" setting (I'm sure the Rioters' buttholes quiver in fear after each post because of the toxicity over here).

Leylania (EUW)
: Wait wait wait, there are actually still people complaining about Darius? The probably most useless Toplane Champ that is in the game right now? Just don't have long trades with him so he can stack his passive on you and if you are melee don't fight him at all and go roaming asap. If you try to outdamage him as you say you prob completly ignored the passive and then wonder why he stomped you...
The only top laner who is even more worthless is either {{champion:106}} or {{champion:86}} . I have been having very good success with {{champion:86}} {{item:3071}} {{item:3742}} {{item:3142}} {{item:3053}} {{item:3812}} {{item:1001}} lately though so I'm not all too sure... I might be talking old news. Darius definitely got left in the dust with new runes. Predator is ok, but it's too long of a CD and nothing in Domination tree's lesser runes is even decent. Precision's Press the Attack maybe, but then you have way too much attack speed, not enough tank. Resolve is a big iffy as well. If you go {{item:3800}} + Aftershock you could be a strong tank threat, but if you miss your E you are done-zo. Grasp is not worth. Sorcery is def no-no as a primary. Secondary Celerity + Manaband/Scorch would let you trade way better in lane, but overall only Celerity is worth. Inspiration... is interesting but gimmicky. Darius would only really get Magic Boots. Biscuit Delivery could cause you to win a fight and snowball, but that's too cheese. If I had to choose a Rune setup for {{champion:122}} it would probably be: Resolve: AFTERSHOCK + Unflinching + [Anything] + Second Wind Precision: LegendAlacrity + Coup de Grace This gives him the best combination of Attack Speed and Tank that he needs from runes. Any other core stats like Movement Speed and Cooldown Reduction he can get from items. {{item:3800}} {{item:3065}} {{item:3742}} {{item:3053}} {{item:3153}} {{item:1001}} ? I don't play him so I have no idea if this would be good, but I'd say it's a start. Blade of the Ruined King might not fit in the same build with Righteous Glory. {{item:3193}} {{item:3075}} {{item:3190}} swap one of these out with either RG or BotrK, depending on whether you don't need engage or sticking power.
Troxic (NA)
: Tryndamere is uniquely annoying
He's extremely susceptible to mass CC. Hard CC is nice if you can spare it, but if you can keep him perma-slowed after he dives in with E, then clear everyone else out so he can't hit anything, he's just going to sit there and take hits. He can't do anything at that point unless he has flash.
AR URF (NA)
: Ok guys you were right.
I think the bigger problem is that it's so easy to build. Not even that it's cheap. Zeal = easiest ADC item to build, + 1400 cost to finish? That's basically a strong upgrade on every back, unless you're feeding. Even then you can build 2x daggers and then the combine cost is 800, which is piss easy to amass.

It outclasses EVERY healing rune if you do a significant amount of ability damage. Serious try diana/akali with it+ gunblade and tell me that shit can die. Alternatively, Kha'zix with it and death's dance. Want to really take things up a notch? Somehow get death's dance, gunblade, and 5 stacks of it on Kha'zix.
I use it on Garen xd xd Second Wind + Ravenous Hunter + Death's Dance, come at me!
: Riot, we need to talk about... this.
I am leveling a fresh account right now to test the NPE (new player experience) this season and this was one of my first gripes.
: The old system was smaller rewards, that made saving for a champion seem accomplish able even if the current system offers more BE overall. Would you want $100 a day for 30 days or $3200 at the end of a 30 day? Technically you make more by waiting, but I'm sure most of us would rather take $100 a day cause you can use that money each day rather than getting a large chunk later.
You can be logical about it (and I agree that when used as intended, the new system is better) but I'm talking purely about "game feel" which is an incredibly important but enigmatic subject. Giving players something and then forcing them to burn it to get the rewards that they actually want readily causes players to feel cheated out of a good deal (i.e. optimal path) even if the system is better either way. If Riot wants to give us random discounts on champion BE purchases, there are so many other gratifying ways to go about it. I just wanted to highlight that the new system is not optimizing on game feel. Thanks for reading. I appreciate that.

: thats what decay was for. to remove players who didn't play off the ladder. even silver had decay.
Exactly. And decay caused players to stop playing League. Riot didn't like that so they changed the system.
Fôx (NA)
: Does ranked from season 6 affect this preseason rank?
It would be a double soft reset, I believe. In preseason 7 your MMR gets soft reset to be closer to 1200. If you don't play all season, the number won't change anymore, obviously. In this preseason your MMR will also get soft reset again to be closer to 1200. So it'll be damn close to 1200 I'd reckon.

: Biggest mystery of my life...
I don't appreciate the jarring eye-movement necessary to read this comic correctly. The first block of text should be above the second, chronologically.
: why gold 5 and + division 5's need to be purged
It's working exactly as they intended. I guess you don't remember the old system. When Riot came up with the new tier system, they made it so that Division 5 was specifically incredibly hard to get demoted from. This was to encourage players to keep playing even though their rank was deteriorating, because in the old Elo system, people would STOP playing League for months just to keep their rank, or more specifically, they would play only one game every now and then so that their Elo wouldn't deteriorate. Riot doesn't want people to stop playing. So you have this system. Yes it encourages boosting. But people are still playing League and that's all Riot cares about.
: You can't take Zoe's word seriously, she's mentally 5 years old.
Pretty sure she's mentally/physically ~11, not 5. I would have to reread the lore tho.
: A lot of that is true, but: > I find that her biggest weakness is an INSANE lack of waveclear. If you spam push everything to her tower, she runs into big trouble. Either spend mana on a half-clear (if that) or try to last hit with your lousy basic attacks. Is only true really early on. It gets much better at waveclearing really quickly, at lvl 3 Q. > Her skills interact with minions and none of her skills go through them. If you stay behind your wave it is a huge barrier against Zoe. She won't be able to hit you. She has her R to go through minions to land bubbles. Has to work more for the Q, but she has ways to get around blocking skillshots with minions >Also her teamfighting is not that good. Her main job is to catch one person out and delete them with her sleep. But in teamfights very, very often one of her teammates will stop the sleep early and her combo will be ruined. I mean, she can still doom one person by catching them with sleep, but if that fails she can't do much. Her teamfight has a lot of potential, but people don't know how to play around it.
True. When I played {{champion:63}} {{champion:101}} {{champion:13}} {{champion:34}} {{champion:43}} {{champion:99}} {{champion:21}} {{champion:112}} (any of these) I got the Zoe on lock before she even got to 6 though. It helps to either be so far away that she can't hit you, have a spell that goes past minions (like Brand Pillar or Viktor Laser... or MF double shot), or be a mage that builds {{item:3027}} first item. Once you build RoA she's going to have to do two max damage rotations to kill you.
: [Gameplay] Ravenous Hunter does not work on Mordekaiser whatsoever, despite being spell based
Now I know why I don't heal for shit when I take this rune. Thanks m8
: It's not that Zoe has too much power, but rather an unproportional amount,
I actually have no problem with Zoe. She has two incredibly powerful skills. But she has more than a couple glaring weaknesses as well. I find that her biggest weakness is an INSANE lack of waveclear. If you spam push everything to her tower, she runs into big trouble. Either spend mana on a half-clear (if that) or try to last hit with her lousy basic attacks. Also, she has no real escape. If you play a mobile champion and she misses her bubble, you can pounce on her no problem, especially pre-6. Even when she ults she can only dodge with it. She doesn't actually teleport away. Her skills interact with minions and none of her skills go through them. If you stay behind your wave it is a huge barrier against Zoe. She won't be able to hit you. And did I mention she is squishy squishy squishy? Traditional "combo" mages like {{champion:63}} {{champion:13}} {{champion:34}} seem to do pretty well against her. Just land your main damage and she's basically forced out of lane. Seriously. On new accounts {{champion:63}} is free. Zoe loses hard against {{champion:63}} . Go nuts. Also her teamfighting is not that good. Her main job is to catch one person out and delete them with her sleep. But in teamfights very, very often one of her teammates will stop the sleep early and her combo will be ruined. I mean, she can still doom one person by catching them with sleep, but if that fails she can't do much. Yes, her EQ is VERY STRONG. But that's basically all that's good about her. Just dodge the bubble and you'll be okay (I mean, you gotta dodge the star too but that's not too hard). Final tip: her Bubble is a massive threat. Flash to dodge the drowsy debuff if you have to. I wouldn't recommend flashing AFTER getting drowsy'd though.
: I finally got honor level 4
: My point exactly; I suggest you re-read my response if that wasn't clear.
Yeah, I get what you're asking. But now at this point I am unsure why you would bother to ask such a question. "I know you guys aren't mad about Varus being gay, but is anyone mad that Varus is gay?"
: Sorry for the miscommunication, but this message was not my intention. I didn't mean to say that I thought the fact that 2/3 of Varus was gay was the problem. As I said, it was just a question that popped into my head. I didn't mean to sound like I was ragging on people for not liking the new lore because there was a gay couple. I'm going to edit my post to help ensure it doesn't happen again. Once again, sorry for the inconvenience.
I'm saying that no one cares that he's gay. So to answer your question directly, no. No one is more upset because he's gay. They are upset because his entire story got changed.
Gixia (NA)
: Missions are the worst thing Riot ever added to the game
I just forget that they're there, then suddenly REWARDS!
: Legitimate Question: Would you have been less upset if Varus had fused with a straight couple?
Most of the backlash on the forums has nothing to do with him being gay.
: Val had control of Varus only at the end of the comic. The color text which tells of things happened far after (they're in Shurima) shows that Varus is more than in control of the situation.
Ah, I went to go read the short story and it kind of makes sense now. But that contradicts the ending of the comics. Val and Kai were in control at the end of the comics. But now they are just voices in the back is Varus's mind? But if this is a constant power struggle, where are there absolutely 0 mechanics in the game that reflect this? In-game he is 100% blood-thirsty darkin all the time. They should have shipped this in conjunction with a rework tbh, what a mess.

Rioter Comments
: What happen to having all runes unlocked for new players?
They still give you the whole rune page in terms of power, but optimization is left for later levels, ideally when you've had a chance to actually read what everything is.
: Aw :/. Sorry to hear that. Old LB was a pain to deal with.
It's all good. I started to main her after that game. Muahaha. mUAHAHAHHAHA!
: Memories of your first ranked game?
I went 0/7/0 in 8 minutes as Veigar vs. Leblanc in Season 2. I think that was the only game I ever rage quit.
: Few thoughts here, your mileage may vary. 1. Start with Annie. Ridiculous range, hard engage, amazing both solo and in teamfights. Easy self-carry while you get more comfortable. Also, she's cheap. Worry less about rounding your pool for now and grab someone simple and stable to learn the flow of games and how to merge with them. 2. Yes. Either freeze the lane and win trades, or shove shove shove until you can't shove anymore. Keep your vision tight and roam when it's convenient for the rest of your team, not just yourself personally. IE, don't throw yourself bot when they're already pushing and can secure their own kills just so you can get them first. 3. The best champs are the ones you're best at. See who's in the rotation and can be a justified mid laner, maybe you'll be pleasantly surprised with how one feels and it'll just 'click'.
I'd have to nitpick/disagree, Annie does not have the supreme range she used to have. Outside of her ult, she is VERY easily outranged by any traditional mage, Zed... basically anyone that's not a melee like Diana or some off-pick ADC.
