: Gotta say: Not a fan of Kayle's new look.
Yeah, the Samus Aran comparison is pretty accurate actually. Often I'm all for designs that can accentuate sexy and cool elements all in one for both male/female characters. Just as broad examples, In MMO games I will often pass on bland "stock" looking armor, and will often like armor that accentuates broad shoulders for guys, as they look masculine and sexy, while I also think breast plates can make a female armor look sexy/cool. I think you can achieve good balance when designing fantasy armor. This one may be too tipped towards the sexy side of the scale, and while I think it would work for Lux or Ahri, it does collide with Kayle's established character. Seeing how Nintendo have treated Zero Suit Samus in some instances, and how Riot usually does things, I guess this was somewhat inevitable, but I personally would have preferred they did it for one of her skins, not her base look.

Its sad to see how Lucian is immune to real nerfs. It's giving me Lee Sin flashbacks.
: From one support to another; how do y'all keep your cool?
Hi, I'm an ADC main. It's a bit frustrating to know that a post like this is an actual trend on the boards. Supports are allowed to insult and blame us for toxicity and lanes going poorly, but I rarely see supports admit to any kind of mistake. I know I'm setting myself for failure and a rain of down votes with this one, but this attitude of blaming us for every bad lane you have isn't helping anybody. I've been playing since 2012, ADC since 2014, and I've never had a toxicity-related problem. Not once. I'm also a player who will **ALWAYS** prioritize honor and commendations towards my support. I don't care that our Mid Irelia went 59/0/23 and carried the game, I'll still commend my Support. I don't question people for weird support picks. I'll never **EVER** flame a single support player for taking any kill in lane. There's no such thing as a _"KS"_ which was a term used by raging kids in season one who thought the game was another Team Deathmatch game. Everytime a Support apologizes to me about taking a kill, I'll tell them to not apologize for such a thing. I'll also always let them get ward-kill gold. And yet, the amount of times that I've had to deal with supports screwing me over would make for a funny post, including some of the following situations: - Support flames me for not following them into an ill advised fight. Examples include engaging when we're at half HP or low on mana, engaging a Draven or Lucian that have level and item advantage, attempting to fight in lane when I'm on my way from base to then ping me in rage because they engaged too early. - Leaving me to rot 1v2 and "teach me a lesson" because I did one of the following: Asked them to play more passively. Asked them to please stop attacking the minions so I can control my wave. Asked them to play more aggressively when we have a clear lead. - Support player will make a bad roam. They'll decide to leave as our mid player is recalling. They arrive mid when there's literally nothing to be done and our Jungler isn't even going for an invade and is at the other side of the jungle. Playing against oppressive lanes that know how to freeze, this often results in a nearly unplayable laning stage, as I can't get close enough to farm and I'm being zoned by Draven/Nami or whatever. But if I ask my Support to please not leave me alone, I'm called a toxic idiot who doesn't know how to play safe, with the player not realizing how much a 1v2 frozen lane actually hurts any ADC. - Support decides they're the "real" carry and start taking CS. Unlike what some of you may think, doing this won't make you stronger. It'll only make the both of us weaker. We'll be sharing CS in a lane where enemy ADC will be getting all the gold for themselves, and heading into the mid game, maybe you'll be alright as you don't need as much gold, **but we do**. CS gold is our bread and butter, and when you do this, you're only slowing us down and directly jeopardizing the team. - This is the most rare, but sometimes I really get a support that is absurdly clueless. Yesterday I had to deal with two different kinds of supports. One was an over-eager Nidalee, who dove the enemy 1v3 several times to get a kill. The other one was a Blitz who after being chunked half health by Varus/Soraka, would just run into them unable to land a single hook, and this is no exaggeration. He would make you Blitz mains cringe. Of these two, I'll take the eager Nidalee 10 out of 10 games. She may have been insane, but she at least had a plan, stayed with me without pointless roams... then actually roamed to help when the time was right, and did get some useful kills for the whole team. It's rare that I get a Support as clueless as that Blitz, but yes: the support position isn't immune to these kinds of players, except because we're a duo lane, that player will drag the both of us together. Did I flame Blitz? No. But it wasn't a fun lane/game for me. If any of the above happen and I end up in a weak mid-game phase, starved for gold and items, it's apparently never the support's fault. It's never their bad roams, ill-advised engages or bad plays. It's always my fault because the other person is just _"the poor support doing their best"_. I don't want anyone's pity, I just want responsibilities assumed. I'm only as strong as my support is. I won't flame you, but I expect you to realize when you've made a mistake. If you're going into the game with a mentality of _"ADCs toxic as they come and dumb as a sack of potatoes"_ then it's no wonder you get frustrated so easily. Of the times I've had to play Support in ranked, I've rarely (if ever) have had to deal with a _really_ toxic ADC, yet for a couple rotten apples you wanna put us all in the same basket? I come into every game trusting my Support, regardless of previous experiences. I'll always try to be amicable when trying to fix an ongoing problem in lane and will never call people "Stupid" or any names like that. You guys as support mains wanna claim respect but don't seem interested in giving it back. Not every ADC is how you paint us, and you too are capable of making mistakes. Less insulting, more open minds please. Thank you and take care. {{champion:18}}

Eeeh as someone who experienced that old Pick-Ban, I can say that I prefer the new Pick-Ban 10 out of 10 times.

: Tell me that promos aren't rigged ?
I don't like promos. They were introduced as a way to let the Solo Queue player _"Experience what professionals go through when they play a series"_ when in reality professionals that go into a series are playing with an organized team with 4 other people that have been striving for the same goals and that have been working together for months. **This does not translate well to Solo Queue** People won't always have the same drive to win, nor can you gauge their dedication to the game or that particular match that may be very important to you as a player. You can be in a 10 game winning streak, but if you lose your promos, those 2 games you lost become way more important than your previous 10. They've always felt artificial and pointless to me. Some people are in love with promos and I don't get it. Promos won't go away no matter what so just have to deal with it.

: What champs are special to u?
{{champion:18}} - **My name is inspired by her :D** I originally picked her up in 2014 to expand my ADC champion pool, and then never looked back. In hindsight makes me laugh when people think current Trist can be broken, because makes me think they probably didn't see Pre-Rework Trist, and how busted she really was back then. Over the years I've seen her ups and downs, and above all, I still enjoy playing her to this day. I love her go-lucky positive attitude, I love her design, and even if Riot hates her, I'll always love her. {{champion:99}} - **My OG Main :D** I reached Lv 30 playing little more than just Lux, and she'll forever hold a special place in my heart. I think she's one of the better balanced mages, with lots of range but an actual need for mana management. She's useless without her rotation and good positioning is imperative. I've found she's mostly fun to play in every meta, and turns out she counters Zoe **SO HARD** it's not even funny. If I feel like I wanna wind down, I can always pop a Lux game and have fun with her. {{champion:498}} - **New ADC** I enjoy playing Xayah almost as much as I enjoyed 2014 Trist back in the day. She also reminds me of myself... if I was pretty... and cool... and confident... and actually she doesn't remind me of myself, but I wish I was more like her. Sweetheart Xayah is my favorite skin in the entire game. Change my mind. **COUPLE OTHERS** {{champion:30}} {{champion:85}} - **All Purpose Fun** These two are what I often go to for a very different style of play. I play them both Mid and Bot whenever the situation calls for it, and they're so much fun in very different ways. I've been playing Karthus way before Dark Harvest was a thing, and it's just because I think he has the coolest Ult. Diving into a fight knowing you'll go down but then pressing that R is one of the best feeling in League. Kennen is my favorite Yordle boy. His play style is super unique and I just love getting a nice flank and destroying 3 people with the ult. Playing a fed Kennen feels rude AF. {{champion:56}} - **Thx Vedius...** I liked Noct before, and I think Eternum is one of the coolest skins in the game. But then this happened: https://youtu.be/Etf4vpGphLo {{champion:142}} - **Most fun by the end of 2018** I really didn't enjoy last year. ADC was murdered blah blah you know the story and details. One day I got Zoe in ARAM for a free rotation. Must have been September or October because it was post nerfs. Turns out she's a lot of fun, and she's so fucking overloaded. Comboing R+Q is just so much fun, and feels rewarding to land it after a successful Sleepy Bubble. Her W is up there as one of the most busted skills in all the game. Free summoner spells plus a free Ahri E?? She needs work, but even in her nerfed state, she was the most fun I had at the end of 2018 with the game.
