: Idk, didn't even check her runes, but didn't notice much difference from playing against her on mid.
Aftershock Lux is supposed to be played Support (I think), so I don't know how well it does in mid, but I doubt it would be good

The reason champions like Ezreal, Lux, Sona, MF, ect get a high volume of skins is because of their high playrate. Id love to see others get them more often but they have much lower playrates, so those statistics are what make the popular champ skins much more profitable. To be honest, I'm not expecting a lot for Zilean and Shaco because Dunkmaster Ivern happened. Even if Zilean does receive a skin, he's nowhere near the level of Ezreal in all aspects of skins: quality, quantity and tier and probably more. Popular champions get skins because of their high playrate and they are profitable for Riot, and I mentioned that in my post. But just being profitable for Riot and specific people, others that play league are not receiving the same sort of treatment. We can't control what other people play, can you blame the community for liking certain champions? If so, using your logic I could just say we should blame people who main champions that have lower playrates because "Why don't you main a champion with hIgHeR pLAYrATe HuH that way you won't be dissatisfied". How is that valid? And it is kind of is favoritism. Although the community likes these champions, doesn't mean Riot HAS TO MAKE SKINS for them. They can decide for themselves. yeah, if they pick popular champions they might profit more, but they had a choice, and they picked profit and not players. People have been complaining about those champions such as Lux, MF, Ez and so so for getting so many skins for a while now, and Riot must've noticed at this point. It's hard for Riot as either they profit less and make the community happy, or they profit more and make the community angry, like I said. But they're not putting it to a balance, they just keep profiting and making the community angry and frustrated. It's ok to profit and you need profit to pay bills, but at this rate they're just milking it.

And also, champions with ultimate skins shouldn't receive legendary skins. That already would be unbalanced in terms of shares of skins. I'm pretty sure it's a rule, but if it wasn't, why would you make a legendary skin for a champion who already has a Tier 1 level skin?

: I dunno if it was really "a rule" per say. It was more just an assumption based on what was currently in game. I've never actually seen Riot say they would never have both a legendary and ultimate for the same champion. Just like how people claimed Ultimate skins were a unique theme, but then pulsefire cait happened. They were just things that hadn't happened yet, so it wasn't that they couldn't.

: Was this a normal game? If so the answer is simple. Plat is ranked, ranked has a different MMR than normals. If you do not play normals except once in a while.... you are with the other average mmr people in normals which starts out in about bronze area.

If you do not play normals except once in a while.... you are with the other average mmr people in normals which starts out in about bronze area. not sure about that, but then judging by his gameplay he really didn't seem like a plat 3 that's all. even his duo partner master yi which was in bronze seemed to be better. But then again, Master yi is literally right click.

: Lux is too safe. Her passive damage needs nerfed Her Ult damage needs nerfed Her Root damage also needs nerfed
She has to go in closer to proc her passive which puts her at danger, like I said, no escapes except flash. Her ult damage isn't that overwhelming early/mid unless she's quite fed. Her root damage doesn't do that much early-mid game.
: {{champion:157}} {{champion:105}} {{champion:238}} do counter lux, they also counter... {{champion:22}} {{champion:51}} {{champion:119}} {{champion:81}} {{champion:202}} {{champion:222}} {{champion:145}} {{champion:429}} {{champion:96}} {{champion:236}} {{champion:21}} {{champion:133}} {{champion:13}} {{champion:15}} {{champion:163}} {{champion:18}} {{champion:4}} {{champion:29}} {{champion:110}} {{champion:67}} {{champion:161}} {{champion:498}} inexcusably well and then proceed to be extremely frustrating towards at least twice as many more champions then that. Lux maybe prey to those three champions as much as many others but she is pretty damn close to being as bad in her own way, at least way more so then most other champions. The only real issue I have with lux is her Q, its dumb. Its is a long range fast projectile with significant total dmg output cause it hits two targets, then being a root with a really long duration on both those targets, just why? Take a look at bard Q cause it is similar... granted it stuns however at lux ranges her root may as well be a stun vs most champions. He has a longer delay on cast, a slower projectile speed, and less range. On top of this he only gets the stun if he hits something behind the first target hit and as the game goes on even if he builds all the same items as lux(not saying one ever should) he will do less dmg. This isn't even considering the fact lux can back up her Q with a metric ton of dmg needing no allies around for it to be worth a lot. Edit: Oh yeah and I forgot to mention her cc lasts a full second longer if I remember correctly. What puts lux in the bin of champs many consider to just be bad for the game is the same issue {{champion:238}} {{champion:157}} {{champion:105}} have. Lux is way less likely and harder for most champions to punish then it is for her to punish them. Your tolerance for mistakes fighting a lux with most other champs is just horribly disproportionate. Is she OP, no, however she is a cancerous shitty match up. Lastly the reason why you see so much Lux is its her relative easy to play hard to play against nature that {{champion:238}} {{champion:105}} {{champion:157}} also benefit from and surprise surprise if these champions are even half decent they are spammed to no end just the same until riot spares rest of us the frustration with nerfs.
I'm simply using Fizz, Zed and Yasuo as an example. They are a counter to squishies, but they are not played bot lane, but moreso in mid lane. As you can obviously tell, my post is more centred around mid Lux. Bard is a support. You can't use Bard as an sufficient example: it's just an invalid comparison, use a mid laner. I could name hundreds of other mid laners who can dumpster Lux: and she isn't hard to play against if you have an idea of what you are doing. If you don't, I don't know, guess you'll die? Here are some more champions that counter Lux in some way: {{champion:84}} {{champion:131}} {{champion:38}} {{champion:55}} {{champion:142}} {{champion:101}} {{champion:91}} {{champion:7}} {{champion:517}} {{champion:136}} {{champion:8}} {{champion:245}} {{champion:39}} Hope you're slightly more convinced.
: Yes yes, defend your otp all you want. On a sidenote, literally nobody has ever said lux is OP in the entire history of league of legends (outside URF, that is - she's obviously OP in urf because that's the entire point of the game mode.) That you see ONE person in-game say Lux is OP because you got fed on her really doesn't warrant coming to the boards and ranting about her. The only way you could consider her OP in normal play would be that she is extremely easy to get assists with.
Literally nobody? I would question that very much. You just gotta type lux op in your google search bar, more than hundreds of league thread results will come up about her. Also it's not one person at all, it's plenty of people i've talked with actually.
: It's because she is op LOL
: The only thing I will say is that she often receives seemingly random and unnecessary buffs (IE: Her reset on ulti, when it's already like, a super low CD anyways?). She's never really been underperforming since like, S2. Oh and her hitboxes are fucking psychotic but that's a problem with League as a whole and less-so just her. Certain skins even amplify this problem (Looking at you, Steel Legion)
honestly ive played an entire season of lux but i've never really found her hitboxes psychotic. maybe we're thinking of like THAT one time where the q wasn't supposed to hit you, but neglected the times where it was supposed to hit you but it didn't. Buffs are random sometimes, but then again I feel like she's not a good example, i mean, look at vayne.

I don't think he was ever in the same problem area as {{champion:39}} {{champion:84}} {{champion:266}}. Maybe this is just a problem I face, but when a {{champion:50}} gets 3 kills or something, he snowballs out of control and it feels impossible to shut him down. He's quite dependant on team comps though, but I've heard he's a strong solo queue champion. He pretty much feels like a jack of all trades to me: hes somehow tanky, good burst, cc and some mobility. Riot hasn't nerfed him, but people don't really have a problem with him I don't think, so I think it's safe to say majority of us think he's in a good place right now.

Putting those people in the same category as the genuinely toxic people is really narrow minded of him, especially as it's his company's responsibility to change such a thing if they feel this way.

Not saying that it was OK for him to say those things, just worth mentioning that he doesn't deserve this much hate.

: To All Supports Who Go Doran's Ring
quick question, isnt it kinda general knowledge that you don't go doran's ring on supports? i kind of get it if you're fairly new to the game, but haven't you seen what other supports build? and also, if you see supports going doran's ring in your game, i'm not saying to flame them and be mad, (unless they're obviously trolling) just like remind them to not do that, because it really doesn't benefit them nor the team.
: I believe people play AI a lot. Vs ai you can build whatever almost and win. Lux was a mage and most people just follow the suggested items on the shop screen. Also I'm guessing these players don't build armor/mr items to defend also?
: The only time I've done it was with Neeko support on accident, because it was off meta and I clicked all recommended items out of habit. I meant to get spellthief and ended up accidentally buying Doran's before realizing my mistake when I saw I wasn't getting gold procs.
: a support is useless without mana and Dorin gives more mana regen than the mana coins from Spellthief or Ancient Coin.
also please don't take doran's ring as support, especially not in ranked.
: a support is useless without mana and Dorin gives more mana regen than the mana coins from Spellthief or Ancient Coin.
if a support just relies on her mana then that's not a good support. obviously some champs are more mana hungry than others, but they should be managing their mana at a good level. also backing is a thing, and supports aren't mana-reliant, more skill-reliant.
Rioter Comments
: I don't know man if they keep nerfing the support items I might just start doing it too.
: i think its mostly a problem of them picking what the guide tell them since the guide still tell them to go doran ring on lux
oof It's not just on Lux though, but ngl I see most {{champion:99}} supports taking doran's ring. like no stop it {{sticker:sg-lulu}} But I saw a {{champion:16}} support or something take doran's before so i don't know man
: yeah but maybe at your mmr / level you shouldn't expect the supprot to know this every game and you forget that dorans gives the HP to allow for better trading and that staves off lethal and can make all the difference in ALL INS and let's be honest, early game all ins are what solo queue league is all about and when the game is decided at every level of play
I mean, in what MMR or elo should a player ever think that buying Doran's over Spellthief's as a support would beb good? Doran's are never better for supports, and supports who normally take doran's as a starting item are normally mage squishy supports, which excluding some, do not like all-ins. As a support you shouldn't be worried about HP and stuff. If you're playing your champion correctly you won't be staving off lethal, and if you're managing your mana correctly you can still make the difference without lacking gold with a doran's ring. "early game all ins are what solo queue league is all about and when the game is decided at every level of play" And this I won't even comment.
