: Why do we not talk about how ridiculous Rengar is?
It's cause it isn't super popular. Like Viktor top was a thing for a while before it went mainstream. Once a ton of people do it, the players will throw fits.
: Is there any jungler plat+ here for a tip or an advice?
Not plat+ but just explain that unless the enemy is out of position, your friend plays someone with good engages, or you have good engage there isn't much you can do. It is a good lane to gank depending on many factors, is the enemy shoved, does your jungle have hard CC, whose team has better vision, etc. I just gank whatever lane is being shoved in the hardest, gives you the most time to burn flashes and get a potential kill.
: So they didn't give master yi or olaf cc immunity? Hmmm nope just looked it up and they did. Point is hs R is useless to the point he effectively has 1 less ability. This champion can only move and auto, so something to assist in these would be nice.
They don't give out cc immunity to high damage champs. Yi is not CC immune, you obviously didn't look it up or just have no idea what CC means, it includes stuns, roots, and suppression. Olaf is immune but he isn't high damage. His R isn't useless some people max R first.
: Skins On Champs You main
The way I figure I just buy them for who I play the most. No reason to get a super cool Aatrox skin if I never play him
: K but he doesn't have a forth ability most of the game cause it sucks that bad. That's not okay... also immunity to cc is op on any high dmg champ and guess what....
Yeah, that's why they don't give out cc immunity. I'm not sure what your point with that is other than don't give Udyr what you just asked for.
: Imagine if Udyr R was somthing along the lines of Olaf's.
Udyr is already very strong and viable. He is also one of the few unique champions out there, no one else has a kit like his. Giving him immunity to CC would make him op

When you come face to face with a level 6ish Nasus with 75+ish stacks he's very hard to beat in a 1v1. how about you punish his brainless afk farming by ganking the sht outta his lanes and getting ur whole team ahead, or yea invading and stealing his big monsters is a valid counterplay. heaven forbid you actually have to do some thinking in this game.
You're missing the point almost no jungler can make a big enough impact or have a big enough lead to make the difference mid game. When the teams group at 15-20min and nasus had 400+ stacks he's too strong he can q almost anyone for close to half their hp. My issue isn't him being hard to jungle against it's being hard to play mid game against, of course you can gank and get some good plays and be ahead but that doesn't matter when someone can press q every 2 seconds and deal 600+ damage each time. None of your solutions answer this problem
Kelg (NA)
: You don't need to stop nasus your jungle will just shit on every lane while nasus does nothing but farm all game.
But the mid-game where people finally group up is so hard to play when he can just half health people with a Q because he has 500 stacks at 20 minutes. I'm not saying its the worst thing in the world it just seems overly strong. Not many people can 1v1 a Nasus who has 72 stacks at level 5 is my point. Unless you play an aggressive invading jungler you're gonna have a bad time.

If the minimum is 72 that means he has to clear the jg 6 times to reach 400 both red and blue buff take 5 mins to respawn so can only take 3 of them by 16 mins the rest of the buff respawn every 2.30 mins meaning you will have only taken them 5 times and that is not counting the time it takes to clear and nasus does not have amazing clear so the number will be lower.The math does not add up at all so why are you lying.
Yes, the minimum is 72, the max is 120 (I believe it might actually be slightly less than that). He had 1 kill and farmed at least 2 waves off of top lane. I agree, he could not get 400 by just farming the jungle but I never said that, I said he afk farmed. He cleared jungle went and killed our top laner took two+ waves then backed and cleared jungle again and held mid while his mid was back. He was not actively ganking he was passively farming for the first 14 minutes including holding lanes. Why is everyone so quick to just call people liars on the internet? If I knew how I would show you the game.
: Nasus will never get anywhere close to 400 stacks by 14 mins he can barely get 300 stacks by 14 mins.
I literally just played a game where Nasus had 401 stacks at 14 minutes. There are several videos of him getting up to 500 stacks at 15 minutes.

: What is, in your opinion, the worst designed champion in this game?
{{champion:77}} This champion is the most toxic piece of garbage there ever was. He has one of the fastest clears in the game (even with no items), he has the highest instant movement speed buff ability (ex. Hecarim can run fast but he builds up to it, same with Rammus), he has an auto attack stun with a short cooldown, he has high durability. There is no counter play to his invades. Catch him in your jungle as Warwick and you have bloodscent on him? He is faster than you, catch him as Jax? He will out duel you or stun you and run away at high speeds. Oh is your team collapsing good thing he can stun 2 people within 6 seconds and then run hella fast away. This guy has no counter play.

: Tanks shouldn’t do damage.
Tanks have to deal damage because like it or not they get one-shot too. A tank getting one-shot but dealing no damage makes them useless so they must deal damage. I know not all tanks get one-shot, I know not all tanks deal high damage. I just can't think of any tanks who deal unreasonable amounts of damage and have an unreasonable amount of survivability as well.
Rammuz (EUNE)
: Do people prefer this over what League used to be ?
The game was best in like season 3 or 4, there are clips of people being able to actually outplay someone... and I don't mean they one-shot the enemy first. People actually had to use their brain to play and not just press Q,W,E,R all at the same time and destroy someone. It was more... strategic?
Madjack01 (EUW)
: Is Katarina jungle viable?
Your best bet is to go into practice mode and just focus on farming. Learn how to farm on your desired champion, then take them into a bot game and learn how to farm and interact with an enemy. In the bot game don't just go in all the time on them basically don't fight the enemy just learn how to farm around an enemy champion who is trying to attack you. Then go into a normal game and take what you learned and start trying to hit the enemy at opportune moments. Doing this will help you far better than playing a champion in their off role, farming and not dying to the enemy are the most important aspects of winning lane once you can do this learn to attack. Just my opinion (I'm a jungle main so take it with a grain of salt.)

: Ok, in case you don't know. Darkins are the weapons not the vessels. So he would be the shield. Witch would NOT be possible, because the lore says "Darkins are weapons of great power" so we know all the remaining darkins are Weapons and not shields. So your champion is lore impossible, but if he wasent a darkin, is all ok. Next time you make a darkin champion read the lore.
I was going for the angle of a host being completely overcome by the Darkin, similar to Aatrox; so, him throwing the shield but becoming weaker while it is away from him does actual fit that portion of the lore. For the other part, I think it is silly to say a shield cannot be used as a weapon or considered a weapon. I read "weapon" more as a tool for warfare than being limited to just generic weapons. If this were the case isn't a scythe just a farming tool? Scythes were never designed as weapons and were never used conventionally as one, so by your logic Kayn cannot exist. Riot should have read the lore. I read the lore, but I interpreted it differently.
: So with his R, he absorbs all damage around and behind him into a wave that he shoots out? I can see that in and of itself be a really good team protection during Baron or whatever else. His E should probably receive a reduced cd when picked up(Like {{champion:2}} axe), and maybe scale the effects with the distance thrown. Also a cool interaction would be if using E while Q is active caused him to charge forward with his shield, pushing enemies along. Or maybe rework W and make that interact with Q instead.
Yeah, Olaf Q was pretty much what I was thinking when thinking about the E. that E Q interaction is pretty smart. Thanks for the ideas
: if you want him to throw his shield way for a while then it wouldn't hurt if it buffs his offensive capability instead while he doesnt have it. Its so easy to juke and attempt to draw out important cd's anymore in this game that any major weakness like losing access to your abilities for a while is basically a death sentence or consigns you to being useless.
Well, I was envisioning it having a fairly large hitbox and going through minions and stunning any enemy hit. Kind of similar to the Olaf Q with a wider range and a stun rather than a slow. I thought him losing the other abilities is akin to his lore, the Darkin being the weapon so the host losing the weapon should weaken him some. But I can see how that would make him too weak and basically be overly vulnerable. Thanks for the suggestions though, not bad ideas
: W is kind of similar to {{champion:201}} . especially with having a giant shield. So maybe try changing that? He likes being tested so he needs a good engage maybe?
Yeah, I was thinking if he had hard engage he would be OP and taking the damage dealt to the ally was a good way for him to test himself but yeah, it is similar to the Braum W.

: Iron Bronze Silver Gold?
I think the actual idea behind the metals being ranked was originally based upon value. Bronze<Silver<Gold<Platinum<Diamond, if this were the case then Iron cheaper than bronze if I remember correctly so it being last is appropriate.
Seby88 (NA)
: Darkin support. Champion concept
I am assuming her passive means +50 HP if the cannon/monster/champion dies. If not she would be an OP tank jungler or top laner. She sounds like she would just build full damage or nearly full damage with a visage rather than go tank.

: What was the worst and best time/meta for league you can remember
I really liked the tank meta, I know people hated that meta but I play tanks mostly so I didn't. I liked being able to build health or armor or magic resist and not being one-shot by almost everyone in the game like I do now.
: The Year is 2023
This is funny but also sad. It is sad because if Riot keeps going the direction they are without slowing down this post is what the game would evolve into.
: Pfft Mate Tarzan Was ALWAYS FULL COMMANDO and i dont expect nidalee a practical beast shapeshifting woman to care about that though (if she was a tarzan or like one)
Interesting, Tarzan was always full commando? I do not remember that in the Disney movie, which is by far the most popular and mainstream retelling of the story. Obviously, you understood what I was saying, all people who grow up in the jungle are shown to wear lioncloths in popular media, ex. the jungle book, tarzan, etc.
: Is it a bannable offense to ban your teammates champs during champ select?
Probably not, the Riot ban system is weird and wonky and you could just type my bad into the chat and be totally fine

I mean I define as pretty much the examples I gave.

(old akali was raunchy too nice visual rework) all those who say they wont be as beautiful with more clothes on dont know nothing about beauty! i'm a men and a gamer, but first im a HUMAN and a game, LIKE ANY PUBLIC/SOCIAL product, needs to behave in a way it wont offend or degrade a part of our society
I do not think you understood my post, I never said that their clothing choices dictated how beautiful they were. I agreed with several of the champions she said needed to be updated and gave reasons for the ones I disagreed with. Janna is modeled after the legendary/mythical who are generally clothed very little or not at all so it fits their general design. I do not think any of the champions are "CROSSING some OBVIOUS LINES!", I think some of their skins don't fit their characters, like Caitlyn for example. But Caitlyn isn't crossing the line its just outdated and silly for her to be dressed like that and I agree they should update it, however Nidalee wearing lioncloths is totally fine with me.

I understand your point of view that appearance doesn't affect gameplay and that at the time it was the way things were done but that doesn't mean that it should be the nomr anymore. It may not affect you but it likely affects others. If we have nothing to lose by a change in appearance and voice line and those affected have a lot to gain then I'm all for it. I've grown to accept the way female characters have been portrayed in games but I must admit that I was never fully comfortable. I'd prefer if characters were more realistic, modestly dressed and most importantly have their visuals and line focus on their character, emphasizing their personality traits.
I agreed with several of the characters she said needed an update or change. The ones I disagreed with were explained. I at no point said because video games do this its acceptable, I gave an explanation for each character I thought should stay the same. I even said I thought Katarina's design fit her personality as well as Syndra's. I think you misinterpreted my post.
: It's about time we talked about Wukong - a lovable champion
LOL. Your tips to understand and deal with Wukong are kind of silly. People don't like Wukong because of the way he deals damage, none of his abilities are skillshots, he deals high damage, is safe to play, and has an AOE ultimate that synchronizes too well with his other abilities. Stay out of his E range so he can't dive you? So, just do not farm or get close to farm? His E>Q>R is the main issue. He dashes to your face (gaining attack speed), reduces a large portion of your armor (which most people don't have much of at level 6), and knocks you up while dealing physical damage and gaining movement speed. Being hit by an E is a death sentence if you are almost anyone and the Wukong has his ult and ignite up, at level 6. Even tanks can struggle against him with the way duskblade and his Q work. The nerfs did not make Wukong unusable or inviable. He is still a perfectly fine champion to play. The problem is other champions can do what he does but better, assassin Wukong is eclipsed by actual assassin champions.

: Can somebody actually tell me how is this meta called?
People will probably say either high damage or dark harvest meta.
: Ashe changes
I think Ashe is actually pretty decent right now. If there was going to be any change it would probably need to be to let her Rangers Focus be easier to get off. If she could use Rangers Focus more quickly she'd be much better off. Her main issue I think is having virtually no mobility compared with meta ADC's (Lucian, Kai'Sa, Vayne, etc.) but allowing her to get Rangers Focus off more quickly would increase her damage and help slow down the enemy ADC. I would also increase the cooldown on it so it wasn't easily abusable.
: I'm not saying Nidalee shouldn't be dressed like Tarzan. Just make her bandeau top a little closer to Neeko's shirt and I'm good. The larger problem is her entire in-game model. Take a look at it on teemo.gg and compare to a newer champion. And I'm not saying Janna shouldn't be gorgeous either. I'm visualizing a beautiful elflike woman with cloud-white skin and hair, and sky-blue eyes. And she isn't wearing clothes per se because her body's made of clouds and wind and magic, but it gives the silhouette of clothes, like a blouse and skirt.
Definitely fair about her tops design, I agree Nidalee is not the conventional human form, but hey maybe she likes the way she looks (she is part shape-shifter maybe it's her choice LOL). Okay, I could dig that design for Janna, I just think it would be hard to make a skin look good in-game like that. It would probably come out kind of goofy looking rather than elegant and mystical due to how small they would have to make it, it would either look like regular clothes or goofy billowing clouds (then again I have a trash PC so I play on lowest settings so maybe I am wrong... probably am). I think her base skin is just a good representation of what folklore/myth would consider being a wind goddess/elemental/force/whatever.
: Ehhh, Nid's clothes would look more secured to her person though, since she would have to make them herself, and since she's running around and jumping... yeah, I think she would think of a way to handle that, like straps, and thick ones too, wouldn't want anything snapping off or falling off because she felt like jumping around in human form, her top looks like it's defying physics on a prayer. And no, I don't like how Tarzan dressed, if he got put in a loincloth surely the cloth would give him the idea to cover himself more, perhaps using ligaments to sew the clothes together, I mean honestly, he beat up a cheetah dressed like that??
I mean you aren't wrong I was just pointing out that generally that was how Tarzan was portrayed and I think they based Nidalee's design loosely off that (but yeah, him wearing any clothes is silly to me).
DemoBama (NA)
: [Champion Concept] Nadou: the shadow in the dark
His Q is definitely overloaded if I read it correctly, landing 3 Akali Q's then gets a Caitlyn Q that does up to 99% increased damage with a 90% AD scaling ratio? Forgetting about the damage done by the initial 3 Q's the knife throw even with just 100AD and having it be level three would deal (120+90)*1.99= 420 damage almost. That is a lot of damage. Considering he turns invisible and can dash to you, then ult to you, and press Q between its almost a guaranteed to land 2/3 Q's.
