: the reason why mobile champions are more "fun" is because there are fewer consequences for errors
Mobile champions are more fun because you play a more active part in the game, where as immobile champions tend to play more reactionary, which is boring and one dimensional. Not the case with all of them, just the trend. It's way easier to design an engaging kit with mobility than it is without any mobility.

When did edgy become synonymous with emo? Here's the top definition on urban dictionary, I think this is more accurate than emo. Edgy: something or someone trying too hard to be cool, almost to a point where it's cringe worthy.
: It's funny how ranked is supposed to be about skill expression
You win some you lose some. You cost some games and other people cost you some games. You carry some games and get carried other games. Such is life.

Frankly, I do not think any parent would be proud their child has wasted so much time on videogames. Depends on the books they read. It comes down more to the quality of the media they're consuming, not what kind of media it is. If my child spent all their time wasting away reading books and didn't really learn anything then how was that really any different to if they spent that time playing video games. Books can often be read to grow your understanding; more so than video games generally speaking, but it's not like the simple act of reading does that, and it's not like there aren't good video games that don't.

That's probably just what the internet provider says they are supposed to get, but what you actually get is much lower than what they say. I think the current package I'm getting says "up to 10 mbps" yeah UP TO being the key words here. If I actually think I'll ever get anywhere near 10 mbps here I'm dreaming.

: Guys I'm literally crying right now
Where I am now the average download speed I get is about 800 kbs typically. Thankfully I'm moving to somewhere with MUCH better internet here soon.
: Who do i main to be a one trick player? (One trick responses encouraged and welcomed!)
I don't play much anymore, but J4 always has a place in my heart as being my main, and I think he's a really good champ to main. He goes in and out of popularity quite a bit but I find he's rather consistent at least in terms of overall strength as a champion. I also like J4 because there's almost no situation where you can't justify picking him, he's good in every situation. As a jungle or top laner he can really do anything your team wants from you. He can also play mid, just as good as any other ad assassin really (don't miss your EQ), he can do support but he's really more like a discount leona with a little more utility, if you want to play him bot lane I'd recommend doing it as a carry in a kill lane.

If you play any sort of play making support they can carry quite hard with good vision/vision denial and roams. They can carry harder than most roles... But yes E-Girl supports can be hard to roam on and can get stuck in some rather abusive situations, while the play maker supports can always go and try play making.
: Make shields...shields again. (Shield Duration is actually ridiculous)
I think it's more important that shielding/protecting an ally not be brain dead easy to pull off. It's got to require more than hovering your mouse over your ally and clicking the buttons. We need supports who actually have interesting gameplay based around protecting people. An example of someone I think does this very well is braum, as he has a bunch of skill shots to aim. Or look at threshs shield, it has a purpose that isn't something stupid like an ad steroid. It actually has gameplay attached to it. If riot wants shielding to be strong points of these champions kits then they need some actual gameplay attached to them.

Pandeonor (EUW)
: Yes and no. Games never die in terms of "you can not play them anymore". You can still play pacman. So I don´t think that this type of definition helps here. Games are called "dead" if the playerbase wich is paying is low so that no new content is written for them. I´ve seen some of this games. In "active" times there were events and every in a while fresh content. Let´s say new levels, other characters, new type of events, new outfit and so on. I call a game "dead" if this doesn´t happen anymore or the days between events are not 15 but 150 or the servers are down sometimes and so on. For example: if League would have been unchanged since 2012 it would have been "dead" a long time ago, forgotten by it´s owner. Kids love new content. That´s it. New, fresh and hopefully all are going there, then it´s a "_in_ game". All are talking about in school., you can perhaps play together. You can call this socially "alive", wich is the 3rd definition per inversion of the term "dead". We can find other games. Best example is Minecraft wich has a "bad graphic design" and wich actually grows, has about 74 million active players monthly, doubled within 2 years and it´s a game wich cost around 30$. It is like League an unique "original" within it´s own genre. I´ve made a thread some day´s before with some data. League is far away from being dead or forgotten. The playerbase is huge and it´s an unique game wich is in a good spot within esports. There maybe especially in NA a problem with being socially alive. Well. I am not in a position to give advice. For the future, for a rollback, League has some options to reset itself in position. One of the problems is [compared to new hyper-games] that it´s graphically a game of 2009 with minor updates within graphic engine. That is an immense timespan for a game. Refreshing this would be like rewriting the whole. But. We are talking about schoolground here. Another map or anything else would be nice but would not result in social acceptance. It must smell new and untouched and _MODERN_. League will not die. And somehow I am sure Tencent will do something in future.

Destaice (NA)
: The monsters in A Quiet Place are so poorly written it's kinda sad. (Spoilers).
I watched it as well and I thought overall the movie was kind of meh. It really wasn't anything I haven't seen before, but apparently the reviews for it were really great. The whole setting was just rather hard to believe honestly, and there was little care or representation for the setting in the movie. The characters were also very generic and everything progressed almost exactly how I thought it would. I just don't understand most movie review sites tbh. This is what a 95% fresh movie looks like according to rotten tomatoes?
: Just had a beautiful 55 minute game.
The most intense games for me are always around the 40 minute mark. I've never had a game go 50+ minutes that wasn't a huge slog, because if a team is actually trying to win the game it won't last 50+ minutes unless it's one of those slogs where neither team can reliably engage and they just sit there and play footsy till someone gets caught out and loses the game.

: Cool-down Reduction, Mobility, and Crowd Control -- The Trinity Force That Broke League
mobilty creep isn't even that bad tbh. Here's the last 10 champions released: {{champion:142}} {{champion:516}} {{champion:141}} {{champion:497}} {{champion:498}} {{champion:164}} {{champion:427}} {{champion:240}} {{champion:163}} {{champion:136}} The only champions who are really high on mobility here (I'm not counting taliyah or kleds ult) is camile and rakan, and while camile is problematic rakan is one of the best new champion kits they've ever done. It's suprising riot isn't leaning more towards mobility because lets face it, mobility is fun in this game. All these board warriors always talk about how they want more aurelian sols but just look at his playrate. You could practically delete the champ and almost no one would care. And it isn't like immobile mages can't handle mobile champions, annies doing fine for example. I don't get where people are coming from. Checking a quick tier list for this patch I can see a ton of immobile champs in top spots or near top spots. I feel like the bitching about mobility is just from immobile mage players deflecting because they got outplayed. Like seriously, taliyahs great, annies fine, anivias great, vlads great, malz is fine. OK, sure brand could be in a better spot. I play mages off role and most of the immobile ones are perfectly fine. Or are we talking about immobile adcs? kog maw is the epitome of immobile and he's one of the top adcs rn. Same with twitch. Or are we just talking about {{champion:2}} {{champion:77}} {{champion:36}}{{champion:106}} , 2 or 3 of which are terribly outdated and in need of reworks? As for excessive amounts of cdr, that's how they've balanced the game. It isn't really an issue because everyone has high amounts of cdr, which was intentional. "We have ended up in a place where teams have 2 champions boasting 4,000+ health, stout resistances to both AP/AD, and who can dish out crowd control spells almost constantly." ^ You mean a tank? Like that's what a tank is supposed to do. " We have ADC's who have reset mechanics like assassins and have given them abilities that provide them the ability to deal near 1,000 damage or more in some cases in a single auto-attack." ^ The adc class can be problematic but this is diversity. You know, adcs that actually play differently from each other, which has been a staple problem of the class for a while due to the dependence on auto attacks. Now we have champs like jhin, who doesn't play the same as other adcs, which is a step in the right direction. "We have mages who are capable of dashing around fights, providing CC, and dealing 1,500 damage in a second or less." ^ I'm sitting here looking at the list of mage champions trying to figure out who your talking about here but I'm not sure. Ahri? Like what mage besides ahri even remotely fits this description?
: Zed is picked by the enemy team. I ask for my team to focus on peeling him.
zed got fed a couple games, you're playing mf. That'll happen when you get counter picked and they get a lead. In solo q I don't trust allies to peel, and if I see a big assassin like zed I would be hesitant to pick a no dash/mobility adc into him. Even then though, if he doesn't snowball he's plenty manageable with tabis and GA. Also when your in those impossible situations with an immobile adc vs 1 or even multiple assassins, the best way to deal with them I've found is to hide in fog of war until they target someone else. If you know the moment you step up they're going to gun for you, then you won't be getting any value out of stepping up to begin with. Keep track of their cds and know when you can start outputting damage.

I've wanted this for a while, riots reasoning for not putting even basic things like ratios in the client was something along the lines of but not exactly "players don't need that information to play the game, and it would add unnecessary information to an already huge game with lots of shit to learn".

: Your Overcharge mode really sucks and is not fun. If it werent a mission i wouldnt play it.
I loved this game mode tbh. Played it a lot and I wish I could have done a lot of the missions on overchrage tbh... It has such a nice balance of skill and depth and it takes a few games to appreciate it. When both teams are playing meta champs and trying to win this game is nail bitingly intense. League version of pacman sounds fun as fuck to me.

Honestly if zoes E range just didn't go up so high over walls she would be way more balance-able imo. RIght now she's just gonna turn into another ryze or azir kit. Her win rates climbing every day, currently at a 45.66% on opgg, which for such a high skill cap champion who was just released is pretty damn good. She's eventually going to be gutted and then she's going to sit where ryze and azir have sat for so long, if they don't changing things about her kit.

You didn't ult her in that fight and you messed up the usage of your e pretty bad. You're basically using half your champions kit while being a level down and you expect to win this fight? This clip was hardly unreasonable, if that's what you were trying to say with it. You were pretty much guarenteed to kill her in that fight if you had ult, and you prob would have lived with like half hp too. I'd think warwick is more bullshit than akali from this clip tbh. She woulda done everything right (like you getting literally 0 value from your e) and it wouldn't have even been close with your ult. And I mean sure shroud is a powerful ability.... when you just stand there in it's duration the whole time and allow akali to burst you with Qs repeatedly, but you can also walk out of it and not do that...

Why couldnt they just expand his old lore? You couldve made him a hunter that became an Ionian archer, which defended the temple during the invasion of noxus?

Volibear is now a god for some reason. (okay he wasnt very popular at all and had few lore in general, but still.) > > Rammus is turning into a demi god now. Why cant it be more like Caitlyns and Viktors lore? Essentially the same, just expanded upon and with more flavour added. the short answer is : No. Just like Disney and EA they have gone for the path of profit and destroying the heroes we already cared about we being especially those like me who played Varus from his release. RIOT Doesn't care about any of us, and let's just start being honest here ... this is 100% TENCENTS fault. TENCENT took over 100% ownership and that's where it began. This is all TENCENT cares about Profit and dismantling take down and re-writing in sub par mary sue manner everything. TENCENT wont stop until the entire game is a new game.

Do you actually think tencent has a hand in the lore of the game? Lore which almost nobody cares about? You think riot re writes lore for profit? Bruh.... League of Legends has literally no reason to care about lore, and the only reason they do care about it at all is because the devs care about the lore. Not because of monetary gains LUL. Of all the things you could argue that tencent might be in control of over riot, lore is literally the last on thing on the list.
: Novice Player looking for champ to main at support to start ranked
as someone who only supports when auto filled, {{champion:497}} and {{champion:89}} are my go to picks. {{champion:53}} is fun when you're trolling with friends too though.
koshkyra (NA)
: Vaynes E has like a 99% chance of stunning at any location in the game in Overcharge
Vayne is solid but she isn't the best in this game mode imo. I think the top 3 would probably be lucian ez and corki. I would probably put vayne a little under graves, who is slightly under those 3 imo.
: The biggest problem is match making. "Oh, youre a mid silver players who won 5 games in a row? You must now be at a mid gold level and can clearly carry low silver players against 4 gold players (but you're still not good enough to have the gold rank yourself)"
> [{quoted}](name=420 grams,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=ZmfIKgFP,comment-id=0000,timestamp=2017-11-23T17:16:10.410+0000) > > The biggest problem is match making. > "Oh, youre a mid silver players who won 5 games in a row? You must now be at a mid gold level and can clearly carry low silver players against 4 gold players (but you're still not good enough to have the gold rank yourself)" yeah but you gain more lp and lose less in those situations though. If you're silver rank in a gold game and win you'll get like 30 lp, and if you lose you'll lose maybe 10.
: Well first of all the previous runes(masteries) were better. All of the new runes feel bad and full of counterplay.(against the user) Except Ayre but it got nerfed so mages wont pick it. Any mage that do not engage with a point and click hard CC (root,stun) can not use Comet for its full value. I mostly play Veigar. Every rune feels awful on him. The only fun I had with the runes when I brought Kleptomancy. (which is not a mage rune) Any skillshot mage that requires skill to play feels bad with the new runes. On my opinion these champion do not get much out of the new runes : {{champion:90}} {{champion:50}} {{champion:45}} {{champion:161}} {{champion:112}} {{champion:101}} {{champion:115}} {{champion:26}} {{champion:163}} {{champion:131}} {{champion:268}} {{champion:63}} {{champion:30}} {{champion:38}} You can say the phase rush or whatever it is called can be used on some of them, but it requires you to play perfectly by landing every skill on the enemy, meanwhile ADC's can enjoy the zero counterplay auto attack runes. Mage runes are very situational.(they already have counterplay by lack of mana, CD, no escape and lack of sustain). So if any class that actually needs runes that got outplay potential are the ADC's.

I feel like you're dismissing comet way to easily. I've played vs people with comet a lot and it is actually quite hard to dodge. I was running directly in 1 direction after being hit by a spell that didn't slow and I would still get hit by it. On like all these champions you can run comet whether you start your combo with a cc or not because most times comet will still hit them.
: Would you play an MMORPG based around Runeterra's lore?
Fuck mmorpgs, there's a reason they died like 7-10 years ago. Unless they have some way to shake up the formula of a standard mmorpg significantly I would hate to see them making one tbh. They are expensive to make, and their audience is very niche.

: I have a close friend , she never flames ,she is cool always , and a support main , our zed was feeding and flaming during the whole match , he kept telling her uninstall , sell your skin * with some other words , don't wanna say them * she just said kys , idc about this game anymore * she is now in her 4th day of her 2 weeks ban , and that 0/20 zed main is still playing and feeding , I don't understand how kys is bannable while f*** your mother and many other worse words can't get banned for.

Because riot uses a bot to deliver justice, and this is the result. Because chat is all about context, and a bot can't understand context.
: Does it bother anyone else how the secondary tree rune tree selection works?
: Blitz has been out for 8 years
the hit boxes are part of why I hate blitz tbh. He's just poorly designed overall and it's always frustrating laning against him if you aren't leona or alistar, but the hit boxes are what really puts this champion over the edge of rage inducingly annoying imo.
: Grasp Feels Too Exclusive to Top Lane
the actual health component you gain from grasp really isn't that much. It's maybe 200 hp by the end of like a 40 minute game. So I wouldn't factor that in much when deciding to take grasp vs another keystone tbh.

: Well I consider Deafs and Midgets to be separate races and I know most share this viewpoint so the many slights and offences against them does qualify as racism. Not to denounce your worldview but also you should not denounce mine.

Not to denounce your worldview but also you should not denounce mine. Being deaf is a disability, not a race. If a white person loses one of there arms or legs are they no longer white to you? What if I become deaf due to an accident, does my race change? Or do I have to be born deaf for it to count in your book?
: Is {{champion:38}} a late game champ? I always thought he spiked mid game. He's a great roamer, and is better in skirmishes than full 5v5. Plus he has mana scaling, but his AP scaling isn't that good, which makes the late game AP multiplier item {{item:3089}} less effective. IDK tho, I'm not, like, a kassadin expert. But when I think of late game APs, I mostly think of {{champion:268}} {{champion:112}} (champs with good scaling who thrive in team fights).

Kassadin on 6 items is definitely stronger than kassadin on 3 or 4 items. When you get late game on kas it's really disgusting.
