: Best tips for getting through Silver 2, 1, and Gold 4?
Pro tip, if they have an AFK go die in fountain to give them exp so they can't remake. Sometimes, fighting dirty is the only way to win.
: How would you determine the champs for that skinline? We are basically doing this now by showing riot which champions we like more via playrate and skin purchases. I imagine it would just be tons of the same champions being voted for because they have a larger playerbase.
lets say, just for shits and giggles, If I were to be in charge of it, There would be a 3 day open poll for every champion without a corresponding skin, From Aatrox to Zyra, The poll would be vague like "Dark theme'd skin". After the 3 day open poll a 1 week long "True" Poll would be opened. For example, "Blood Moon Skin for..." And would be narrowed down between the two highest player rated picks, the highest rated pick from Riot's office, and a 4th Random Champion. (Random as in there would be one of those spinny things they used to put bingo balls in full of strips of paper one with each champion's name on it(excluding champions whom already have a skin for that skinline.) and there would be a quick 5-10 minute live stream where the winning champion got pulled at random.) Then the process of creating the skin would go underway and next time that skinline came up, the new skin would be released. IDK, Just a working thought, though. Also, A LOT of players will not play a champion without a skin, so, if they don't like the skin selection for that champion, then their playrate suffers. Now, I'm not one such player, but I know a lot of players who are like that, A good majority of them really love Skarner, but hate his skins, so they don't buy them, and don't play him. Give em a super cool looking skin with a few chromas and his playrate would go up by 15% real quick. (For retrospect, there is a Discord chat I am in with over 5k people(the chat is for lol players who discuss skins they make/would like), they did a poll and over 3k of them want a skarner skin, I know at least 100 of them are the type of "no skin no play" people.)
: Buy a QSS it cancels out mordekaiser's ult
Fun fact, he still leaches your stats, and keeps them when he kills you... So it really is a waste!
: Can we -please- implement a minimum of games played on new/reworked champions for ranked?
Thats stupid, you gotta think people can play them in PBE, hell, they could have gotten really damn good from them off PBE, damage numbers might have changed, but general mechanics would have not, there for, the person you are referring to may have had a ass load of practice on morde in PBE, and looking to abuse his, currently, over tuned Q and E damage for easer Lane and LP gain. TL:DR If someone is hovering a champion and YOU ban them, you should be held accountable as a troll, and responsible if they decide to int, after all, in this scenario YOU are the asshole. If the enemy team picks/bans the champion said person is hovering, and they troll or int, they they are the assholes, however.

: Naming New Champions
Find a name that fits well, For example, If you have a badass viking warrior, you could name them in english then translate it... Like 'Badass" translates to 'Tuffing' in Scandinavian, and, between you and me, that fits a Viking pretty well...

I do find Nocturne/Shyvana to be strange choices given they mainly need some ability tweaks but their kit overall is solid.
I think shy won, but Fiddle needs it the most tbj, he's a squishy who wants to be in the middle of a fight... But he's not an assassin... So it's weird

: you shouldn't be punished for giving up when the conditions are met, this just sounds like an idea fit for people who can't stand pessimistic players
Giving up is against the rules, tho, you can get banned for giving up. I'm not even kidding, I had a practice account get permabanned for giving up mid game, it dose ruin the game when you give up, but your team still fights on, it's just as bad as asking or inting.

: How is vlad balanced?
Vlad is not as strong as you may think. His early game is easily manipulate-able, as you can draw him and his combo out into the open, allowing an easy kill for the proactive jungle. His W cooldown is relatively long and his damage is tied to abilities that drain his HP, He is one of the only champions that can take his own HP down insanely fast, if he is not careful (I have seen a vlad with 45% CDR go from 100% HP to 30% HP with EW combos) His mid game is reliant on teamfighting as his ultimate on a single target is next to useless, so he relies on his teams CC to group enemies for his R to be effective. He is also vulnerable to ignite as it cuts healing, and can make his Q(without passive) nearly useless. Late game he is on the weaker end of the champion pool, and most crit based marksmen and fighters can kill him in the blink of an eye. He also can be kited by mobile champions with a lot of ease at this point, as his range is often slightly shorter than it needs to be to effectively chase. In conclusion, unless you have no clue how to fight vlad, he is weak, if you don't know how to manipulate his kit he will stomp you, Just like Morde, and if you know how to abuse his kit, he will be free kills the entire game... just like morde.
: Reminder that Death`s dance reduces lifesteal / spell vamp on you by a third.
To put this in a slightly easier to understand wording. Deaths Dance causes 33% of the damage you take to become a bleed DoT, This Bleed DoT effect is applied by DD, not the champion, Therefore, you are removing 33% of the lifesteal from a champions attack, because the damage is being dealt to you by DD, and not the champion.
: Riot's OP line
How long til we balance the champs so they all stay at 50% WR?

If you think old Nunu was a walking ult, you should believe new Nunu is a massive improvement since he has a actual kit and a giant shield on ult.
You can walk out of new nunus ult 90% of the time, and it only dose like ,60% of the damage, and the shield he gets is a joke, one Auto mid game and it's gone.
: Swain and especially nunu are very similar to the older versions like the nunu rework kept basically everything he still has a attack speed buff,he still has a snowball, he still has his q and r. Also WTF is the mord community since the first rework was played very differently then the old one and the one we have now has a very small player base and people probably play him since the theme is cool.

Old swain and new Swain have slightly similar ultimates, aside from that they are entierly different, they play nothing like one another.
: Nunu still pretty much maintained at least 60% of the old kit - Blood Boil as the new passive, Q, and R - so to claim he's "completely new" is just ignorant.
He plays out much different than old nunu, Old nunu was more of a walking Ult, new nunu has a more *Snowball* oriented play style, in two ways, where as with old nunu even from far behind you still had people running from you when you were 0/6, if I see an 0/6 new nunu I'm going for the free kill..,
: The hardcore Mordekaiser main they flew in to play test him said he loved him though. So it's not impossible his playerbase still likes him after the rework.
True, But, As a once Aatrox one trick, I know first hand the feeling of loosing your favorite champion, I even started maining morde until I saw he was getting an update, Then I stopped, Riot gives us champion PTSD man.

: Apparently China banned all blood (and dead bodies) in video games.
After reading this post here about China restricting blood from games, I figured I would walk down to the senior center and ask my grandfather, who was born and raised in China, why Blood, Bones, Gambling, and rebellion against the government, are such hot points there, and, Well, his answer made a lot of since. 1 Blood; He said 'Hell I don't know, Maybe they think blood should only come out of a woman.' fair enough. 2 Bones; He said 'Some people, like your great grandmother, Keep their dead families Bones, so it's just a culture thing, Glad we don't have to do that here, used to creep me out as a kid...' He proceeded to ramble on for 45 minutes about my great great great aunt Yui's Bones in a box... 3 Gambling: He said 'Everyone too poor to gamble so it makes people feel bad.' Alright then 4 Rebellion: He said 'Oh hell, everyone hates their government, even me, f*** the government and their taxes...' and proceeded to ramble on about how if anyone tried that any nation could topple the government and how Chinese politicians have always been afraid about assassination and losing their power, like every other politicians. So, There ya go, do what you will with a 98 year old man's wisdom.

: About morde rework
The morde rework is 100% playable by now, To my understanding there has been like 2-4 board going beta testers for it, Right now it is a 90% chance that they are having 2-3 hours of tests done a day to find any and all bugs, within the bug kings new kit. Expect Him to be teased on the next roadmap, even if its simply an odd looking image used when talking about something unrelated. Riot loves subliminal messages, a prime example is when urgot was reworked they left his new model in the games updated files.

: There's no way you can truely balance that either. If the items are two strong Jugs, Figthers, and Assassins will abuse them. If the Tanks lose to much base damage but gain a lot of CC and Utility they will simply be to strong, while also stupid boring to play.
Oh, having to make strategic decisions and plays is boring? You would have hated seasons 2-5.

: M.E.T.A. stands for Most Effective Tactic Available. That is the original definition of the term. So if it is the most effective to play mainly tanks than tanks are better than everyone else meaning the are too strong. When someone says tank meta then tanks are too strong. If someone says Ardent Meta than Ardent Censer is too strong. If someone says ADC meta than ADCs are too strong. That is how the term META has been used for years.
Be that as it may, I have seen (this patch) Yasuo 1v5 while being 0/7/3, and get a pentakill, But have you heard anyone say it's a Yasuo Meta?
: When it is used in the context like Tank Meta then it means that it is the most optimal thing out there. Viable/Good is what you are trying to say not Meta.
MrHaZeYo (NA)
: You can't gut the tanks damage or people will just walk by them, they have to be somewhat of a threat or they'll just be CC bots and then ignored.
Did you stop reading half way through? I addressed that issue, you add length to their CC, and damage and utility into tank items that are essential to creating a reason to target tanks.
: If it is called a **Tank Meta** then tanks are too strong and will on average take up 2-3 positions on the team which is not ok. Tanks can be in the meta, but if it is called a **Tank Meta** then tanks are the meta which is bad. Wording is key. Tank Meta = Unhealthy. Tanks being in the Meta = Fine.
You don't understand what meta is, friend. Last patch was technically "Neeko Meta" but she still had a negitive winrate on a ton of players. Being Meta dose not mean its unhealthy or even overpowered, it just means it can work.
