: everyone says ashe has great poke with w. while i admit that when 5v5 you dance around and poke each other before the real fiight starts, yes its impossible for all 5 enemys to dodge ashe w and it has a decent (100% bonus ad?) scale. but in a teamfight her r is usually close range which means the stun is like 0.3 seconds and her q needs stacking and even when its fully stacked, its not as good as steroids like twitch q, xayah w etc etc. idk i always liked ashe, was one of my first adcs but i just cant get any decent results with her anymore. the only place i get good results with her is in urf with w max and lethality.
I'm a trash Silver (s8), and Ashe is one of my sentimental faves. But even with the crit changes that make Ashe "good/viable" again, I *still* feel like I have to work twice as hard as any of the other meta ADCs to achieve the same success in game. A lot of current ADCs have some mechanic or other than works to help them out on their own, more or less. Ashe has a slow, one stun...and that's it. I feel like you just CANNOT afford to be even one pixel out of position with her in a teamfight, or else you won't even get to wind up your Q before the Zed looks at you, walks past all 4 of your teammates, and ults you with no consequences. I believe the numbers that Ashe is in a decent spot, I just very rarely see it realized in my ELO.

I actually agree with this to an extent, however Diana is a lot tankier than you think. You won't usually die after the first spell rotation unless you are going into the middle of the enemy team... and that's the part where having the old passive really mattered the most. After your full Q W R E R you could auto a lot more than 3 times while chasing the enemy back down, assuming they weren't dead yet. After the 3 autos from 2nd R now, it's like you are hitting a brick wall because you have negative attack speed without Nashors.
I think we're overlooking weaving the sped-up AA's in between the Q and the first R; at mid-game, where Diana's powerspike hits, I don't think its crazy to assume the following can be done with little difficulty: Q-->RW-->3 aa-->E(now that the range has been increased; if it had stayed the same, then i don't think this would be viable)-->R-->3 aa You're getting 2 rounds of fast aa's in that rotation, and if you're building CDR with Nashor's and/or Iceborn Gauntlet (seriously, why can't people see that IBG is great on her?), you may just have your next Q or R up by the time that rotation is done.
: Her biggest issue of balance will still be lich bane. It can turn any AP stacking champ into a burst assassin.
gotta agree with you here. Even if you reworked her like OP wants, Lich Bane would still be a desirable item on her. Heck, when I'm snowballing hard enough with Diana, I build both Lich and Nashor's just for kicks.

: Diana: Thoughts and Discussion
These very same ideas were bandied about back in the Olde Boards. While all of them sound interesting, I doubt Riot even has her on their radar for a rework anytime soon.
: Wow, how did you ever manage that as Janna, you must be a skilled player :O!
All it takes is firing off a Q too soon or the W too late to fuck up the entire peel, not to mention knowing just where the enemy will end up at the end of your R channel, however long you decide to hold said channel for. So yeah, playing Janna to her maximum potential does in fact require more than two brain cells to be working at the same time.
: how about " i sit behind my adc and get carried with 0 skill"
you're welcome for getting a 3 man dive peeled off your squishy ass by that Janna, btw {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}

I doubt they had them exactly in mind, but I'd say some of the writers may be fans of Parks and Rec from the sound of it. Call it serendipity?

I said it elsewhere, but these two are the April and Andy (Parks and Rec) of League now. Also, props to Riot for going deeeeep with the movie references in Xayah's VO. I thought I was the only gamer who knew that "you know how to whistle, don't you?" Lauren Bacall line.
: Rakan's voice is... not what I expected.
I'm in fucking LOVE with both of their VOs, flaws and all. And let's be honest, these two are the April and Andy of League now. X: Someone is going to die... R: Of fun!!!
: Close but my idea was actually "Spin to Skin" where for every 1,000,000 times you rotate your in-game character 360 degrees you get your choice of a 2015 LCS Summoner Icon, SGU Profile Banner, Prestigious Leblanc Chroma or Atlantean Fizz. The publishing phrase would be _Get spinning summoners!_

: Yeah, I've had situations like that too. My favorite though was actually a counter-gank. Enemy Master Yi (who admitedly wasn't very bright) decides to come in and try to nuke me and my ADC while our jungler is beating the tar out of the enemy bot-lane. He alpha's in, and then suddenly finds himself forced into that tiny space between our turret and the wall, at which point he panics and decides to meditate. My Q says nope (and had been fully charged anticipating where he would end up), so he then tries to run, and fails miserably because of the slow on my max rank W. Fed my ADC a kill (and got my team the bounty), gave our jungler (who was already kind of fed) two essentially free kills, turned around a losing bot-lane, and the enemy Yi refused to get anywhere near me for the rest of the game.

: When you get that Janna ult just right
Legit one of the most satisfying feelings a support could have, next to properly executing the Thresh lantern gank+hook combo.
: Can we talk about how bot gets ganked at 6 minutes is forced to back...
...and? If jungler comes down at lvl4-5, makes you back off your tower, and also had a large minion wave about to hit your tower, it's not that shocking that it happens. They capitalized. It happens. If towers weren't built out of cardboard, maybe things would be different, but alas...
: Bot lane is now decided by whoever has more jungler presence
Can confirm. When I play jungle (which is 90% of the time), I like to make bot my priority. Conversely, I'm used to never seeing my jungler when I'm ADC/Support. They'd much rather jerk off in toplane trying futilely to save our feeding Teemo.

: The hardest thing to do in this entire game.
Came up with this name back when phpbb role-playing boards were all the rage back in high school. Whitakker was my OC, and I decided I liked the more mature-sounding, distinguished feel it had. I have since used it nigh-exclusively in all my IGNs and internet personae. Very seldom has it ever been taken from me, and I credit the unique way I spell it for that. If you see this name with this spelling somewhere on the Web, chances are pretty high that it's me!
: if ya can't beat em, join em. I've been playing cait for awhile now, even alot before her rework...and the one time I completely totally lost lane was against a meta yas and blitzcrank bot. Miss Fortune is pretty op now too.
MF is really only optimal when she has a comp that can maximize her ult's effectiveness

: I entirely agree on the Q, and despite playing a lot of Janna since I picked her up in S4, I still have trouble with this. As for the ult, my point was that people forget that moving cancels the healing (or they don't understand that the displacement is useful by itself, I've turned around more losing fights than I can count with one well placed Janna ult to split the enemy team).
She also has windows where she can be extremely aggressive in lane. If your jungler is coming to gank, get ahead of your enemy lane (which should be easy, since with W and your base MS, you're faster than both of them since they'll have no boots, probably), ult them backwards into the oncoming jungler, Q them to keep them there, gg doublekill, hey lets go get dragon. Best example: Most godlike Janna gank support I ever pulled off was that exact scenario, only I pre-charged my Q before-hand, so I ended up knocking the enemy ADC into a fully charged Q...it was a good day that day.
: She's not an easy champ for many people to play. A lot of people have trouble with her Q because of the charging fire-and-forget nature of it, and quite a few don't like how her ult functionally roots her. That and all the people who only pay attention to how much she's been nerfed (and argue based on that that she's useless).
Knowing how long to charge your Q on her is one of the mechanics that separates the good Janna players from those who just think she's easy. A quickfired Q only knocks up for less than a second, and doesn't slow them afterwards, meaning it isn't impossible for the enemy to still catch Janna/her ADC if they still have a big CC off cooldown. As for her ult, you can fire it off and then cancel the healing channel by clicking, if all you want is the displacement. Not saying that it's an easy part of her kit to pull off, just saying that you're not always doomed to the full channel; heck if you stay in the full channel, chances are you just won the teamfight lol, especially with Redemption.
NotSid (NA)
: Honestly, what's everyone's problem with Pokémon Go?
A lot of the ire surrounding it is the fact that Niantic promised us so much in the ad campaign it ran, and so far has delivered almost none of it. We can't battle other trainers, can't trade, no real global/regional events (mythical birds where?). It punished third parties for trying to help them where they fell short, by stopping third party tracking apps, claiming it would harm the game's integrity, when there was no evidence to suggest anything of the sort. But perhaps the most egregious error on Niantic's part is their stunning lack of communication and transparency with their user base. I sometimes think Hello Games took Niantic's playbook on community interaction when No Man's Sky fell flat on its ass. Granted, Niantic is a pretty small company, and they were most likely woefully unprepared for the volume of traffic they'd get, but it doesn't take a genius to set up a "Community Manager" to run your social media in order to at least assuage valid concerns and complaints that your users submit to you. Instead, we got weeks of radio silence at at time concerning features that were very debilitating to the game's playability. Now more than ever, developers and publishers are required/expected to stay engaged with their players. Those that fail to do so (Hello Games) are ruthlessly excoriated by the fans of the game.
