: Dominos vs Pizza hut vs Papa johns
Little Caesars > Papa Johns > Pizza Hut > Dominos Little Caesars does have bad crust, but I always get their $5 deep dish lunch combo so I never have to notice it. Papa Johns tastes good but it makes me sick so I can't eat it. Pizza Hut is probably better than where I put it, but my local one sucks so I'm biased. And Dominos has good food as long as you're not going there for their pizza.
: What skin lines would fit your main amazingly that you know Riot won't do?
I think as far as most fitting goes, a Badlands Baron/Mad Max skin for {{champion:115}} might be good. He's kinda crazy and loves to blow things up, which sound like the perfect mix for a skin line like that. For {{champion:26}} : Rift Quest. Zilean Bluebeard. I know Riot doesn't like making skins for Zilean, but this skin line would fit him so well. He'd make a beard trinity with Ryze and Veigar. For {{champion:267}} : Bilgewater Nami. Normally I'd say that such a thing wouldn't fit her, but she's got that divine whatever skin this patch so I'm all for this. She's from the sea, everyone in Bilgewater lives on the sea. Plus I do think it'd be nice to see a rougher side of her, not just the Deep-Sea type where I guess she's supposed to be evil but not really. For {{champion:63}} : This is kinda hard actually. Brand has lore now but none of it is really in game. Doesn't help that a lot of his skins seem super generic and cover a wide range of genres. Uh... Demacia Vice? Could get all those 80s effects for his spells in there. For {{champion:223}} (he's not really my main and I haven't played him in forever but he's in my name so): This isn't really my idea but I'm just signalboosting the person that did come up with this. There's a 'day job' category of skins now in the skin list. Salesman Tahm Kench. Have his splash be him in a run-down car lot, obvious toupee, mustache, mustard colored suit jacket. Perfect. If we're talking my own idea though... Santa Kench. I think if he were a more popular champ, he'd have it already. He's got the perfect bodytype for it.

: Where are mods on rotation? ;(
TFT is your new permanent game mode. It's an entirely different game that leaves you still stuck with 5v5 but hey, look at those Little Legends! Don't you want to buy a Little Legend?
: Worst patch ever?
Riot cares far more about $$$ from worlds than they care about the average joe playing it. Of course they're going to buff who they want to see at worlds. Not enjoying the game yourself? Might as well just sit there, buy a couple of esports skins and watch their finely tailored esports tournament. There's gonna be missions for it, after all.
: My opinions on Splendid Staff Nami’s splash as a Nami main...
I think it's a terrible looking skin, but as it's part of the "ancient Chinese" or whatever skinline, and it's basically a young pretty human girl with a fish ~~suit~~ tail on, it'll probably be super popular with Riot's much larger Chinese audience.
Zeanix (OCE)
: Do not compare TFT to actual game modes
TFT is purely a money grab. Riot see auto battlers as the next big thing and want to go all out with monetizing it. The other gamemodes were made with the intent of being fun. Unfortunately, they can't be separately monetized like TFT and its little legends can. So they get the axe. ARAM's the only one that'll stay because if they axe it, it'll be too egregious.
: I was lying about showering :(
This isn't a Super Smash Bros forum. I seriously doubt most people here need this advice.
: Splendid Staff Nami Skin
It looks absolutely disgusting. A couple months ago I praised the skin team for being on the ball when a lot of the company wasn't, but honestly, pretty much every skin besides a couple in the Pantheon rework that have come out the last couple months have either just been okay to the point of indifference, or just plain terrible. This skin in particular being in the latter half.
: If "FILL" is your primary role, the "SECONDARY" Role should let us choose what role we don't want
Yes, please. I've been wanting this for so long. I'm willing to lane, any lane, that's fine with me. Having me jungle is a guaranteed loss though. I wish there was a way for me to select all lanes to play without the risk of getting jungle.

Imagine how much money they can make off of it for such little effort? And the balance nightmare that they've been facing for so long doesn't have to be a thing anymore. Riot's just like every other game dev in that they chase where the $$$ is, and that's currently in auto chess clones.

: TT's Removal Will Cause The Leveling Bots To Migrate To SR
Riot 3 years later: We've concluded from dwindling player numbers and the increase of botted accounts playing on Summoner's Rift, as well as the massive success of our new game Teamfight Tactics, that maintaining a MOBA in this day and age is unfeasible. Therefore, we will be removing Summoner's Rift, just as we have removed ARAM the previous year. We thank you all for playing the game that made us famous for so long, and for the most dedicated of classic League players, we will be including rewards for them. It's been a great year for our more successful project Teamfight Tactics, and we welcome you all to play it as we migrate all the champions from League of Legends to it. Riot Game~~S~~

: Petition to keep Twisted Treeline a permanent mode
Riot can't keep more than three gamemodes up at the same time. TFT replaced TT. SR is great by the way. The reason I like the gamemode more than TT is because there's more of the wonderful League of Legends community, the absolute best gaming community in all of esports and gaming as a whole, that I get to interact with. I love that I can have game after game of friendly cajoling along with the wonderful people that play this game on a daily basis, as we both cheer well executed plays together, give each other advice, and give our completely-intended GGs after the game. Oh wait never mind that literally never happens because people just use it to criticize their teammates and encourage people to report them (under the foul language category) for poor play. I'm so glad that the mode that allowed me to play with less people is being taken out, I'm sure being exposed to more of the vibrant members of the League of Legends community will change my mind.

: Do YOU support non-meta strategies?
I main(ed, I don't really play the game that much these days) support Ziggs, so yes, I support offmeta picks. I don't give a damn what people pick as long as they're trying to win. If you want to pick something like Janna top that's fine, hell, I'll get hype as fuck for you if you do well.
: LoL Youtubers
I 100% (beyond broken) believe that all of these clickbait youtubers collaborate together. They literally all use the same font, same format, same titles, there's no difference in the videos at all. Like, just take a picture from a random clickbait LoL video and make people guess if it was made by Professor Akali, or SoloRenektonOnly, or foggedftw or Redmercy or Glacierr. It'd honestly be hard to tell. Actually, now that I think about it, that should be a game for the Memes & Games forum. Props to this Balori person though, at least they _slightly_ alter the font to make their thumbnails noticeably different.
: I really want to quit this game.
I can only play this game in 2-3 game spurts at this point, and only when I play with my friends. That's by design though. As long as you're buying skins and watching League esports so the viewer count goes up, that's all that matters.
: Protecting Children from Abusive Games Act
If it comes down to it, Riot will probably remove them from sale, but keep them in as a reward for leveling up. Kinda like how Apex Legends does it, but without the ability to buy them as well. Maybe they'll decrease how many gemstones you need for hextech skins and such. I wouldn't mind it, honestly. Even though a majority of my skins are from hextech, it's mostly because I'm indecisive. At least then I'd just get skins that I really really want.

Yes, I'm sure someone in the art team that has absolutely no jurisdiction over player behavior deserves to be harassed because he/she is in the same company as the player behavior team, the same company that has been reported on by 'That Journalist That Can't Be Named Here Because r/lol' as having executives do this and exert their power over lower level staff. The same journalist that would equally call this out as bullshit had it not been true.

: Tahm Kench winrate is increasing
I wouldn't be surprised if his winrate in solo lanes increased. He's not a better support though as his capabilities in regard to that have been nerfed. It's an objective fact regardless of whether his winrate increases or not.
Rioter Comments
: Rest in Peace, Tahm Kench
Kench is the biggest victim of pro play, and it's not even because he's fat. Riot should just explicitly come out and say that Kench is a toplaner now and balance him around that. It's clearly what they're trying to do without saying it flat out.

I didn't think anyone would ever take the 'balanced because pro play' mantle from Ryze, but Kench clearly has and has been running with it for quite a while. Absolute garbage bottom tier support in solo queue with no reasons to pick him there instead of another support, shines in pro play because he shines in situations where teams are very coordinated. Why not just disable Kench in solo queue and only allow him to be played in the LCS? That's effectively what's happening anyways, just unofficially. > > I think there might be some valid reasons to pick him in the top lane (or jungle apparently) based on what you would be playing against. In what situation would he _ever_ be recommended as a pick in the support role though? I don't think that any exist. Other supports do each aspect of his kit far better than he does. Slows and poke are supporting, and Tahm got huge buffs to both. Being able to slap them with your tongue to slow them for 50% at level one is a big deal. You can set up an engage/good trade, slow down their engage, or help your ADC chase better than before, and if the enemy turns, you can eat them to protect them from the enemy cooldowns. Providing total cover or temporarily remove an enemy from the fight is still something unique to Tahm that no other support brings to the table. He's going to be great with aggressive supports that are looking to snowball and roam, like Jinx, Kai'Sa, and Tristana, and he's going to be a good pick against poke mages and heavy CC like Lux, Brand, and Morgana.

Okay. Why would I pick him over Lulu or Leona though? He's objectively worse than both of them at doing what you've stated. He can still provide cover, but it's received nerf after nerf and it's very clear to me that Riot doesn't see it as a healthy mechanic. Were he introduced around the same time as Aatrox and have warranted a rework, I'm sure that he would have got one at this point and had that mechanic removed.

I don't play him top so I wouldn't know. My inference through Riot nerfing his supportive ability while buffing his can-be-but-not-necessarily-supportive ability leads me to believe that they'd much rather have him top lane, or at least in a role other than support.

: He can still save his carry from CC/burst, he just can't also totally disengage with them in his belly on top of saving them from a bad situation. He's still building Swifties/Phase Rush, and that mitigates the self slow. Tahm lost the ability to eat his ADC and run the hell away, but he gained better stats, better sustain, better poke, and better CC. He's more well-rounded, which does make him better in other lanes, but also makes him a more consistent support instead of a Devour bot/damage sponge.
