: tanks are obsolete because all they offer is CC
A lot of the time its how your teammates capitalize on a tank's kit that makes a tank good or bad. what they have to offer isnt always super salient. Braum can both feel the most over powered champion in the game and the most worthless champion in the game.

As strong as the slow is it is still single target, adding the potential for friendly fire seems like a bit much. Hey ya e mb. All in all i think zil is very weak considering the amount of work it takes to get a combo but giving him that could make it so he has a huge amount of counter play in things like gank's. Even if its only the next ability that hits that could be huge in a fight or gank.

However, if you are a bit creative there are tons of ways to get his damage on the other team. Im a low elo player, but I have a good winrate with him. He is one of the few mages who can deal tons of damage and have a huge aoe stun.

Also I am a riven main and I have never said that. However, once the bug was discovered riot did decide to keep it due to riven being modeled after fighting characters, and animation canceling being so prevelent in those games. So they decided it would stay and she would be balanced around it. Then they hard coded it into her kit a few years back. Nobody as far as I have ever seen has ever claimed it wasn't a bug. Literally every explanation video on YouTube from the riven mains explaining how to do it states it's a bug.
Even in good hands riven is about as useful as a six pack of caster minions

: Sexism, racism, hell. Hate speech in general (along with telling people to harm themselves) is grounds for a 14-day ban.
Idk man. This isn't work. We don't have an HR office. If its a sexist or racist joke, that isn't crazy offensive, then there should be no ban. You can be an adult and not be offended by it. But, if it falls into the hate speech realm then yeah they should get a ban. Calling a someone an egirl and saying its an easy win seems kind of like a joke to me, but I wasnt in that game so idk. Kind of run of the mill banter between competitors.

Get over it.
Its still cheating, still toxic. What if I want to learn how to play in a masters game? I can't just waltz in and be like 'I'm forcing myself into this game because I want to use your game for my benefit'

Realtalk: BM - harassing your opponents - is not okay in ANY professional sport, including wrestling. "psychological advantages" do _not_ extend to verbal abuse and showboating. The only professional sport where that kind of behavior is accepted is within the controlled acting of professional wrestling, and even then only by "heel" personas. If you pay attention, in less comical professional fighting 'trash talk' is often punished when it is not part of a stage persona.

: I'm a toxic player as defined by Riot
Stating facts to an inting teammate might not help you. People take great offense if you don't treat them like thier little special way of play is legitimate. So, sometimes it's best practice to not say anything. However, stating facts should never be considered toxic.

: Your statements are both ignorant and very kid-like because of their one-dimensional logic and sequence. How old are you?
Listen, there is nothing wrong with playing Dark Souls. Its a very challenging game. Nothing inherently wrong with playing PvE. There are some very rewarding and challenging games that don't have anything to do with PvP. I am suggesting that you might find some fun playing those games if you are looking for the PvE experience. League, however, is an e-sport. This means that its people competing against each other. So the direction the game should take is players making plays with and against each other. Not sitting around interacting with the npcs on the map. I'm not saying there shouldnt be wave manipulation and plays around the npcs. But they should part of players interacting with each other, watching a bar and pressing a button. Also, logic does not have to be complex to be correct. To the contrary, a strong sense of parsimony is a foundation of logical thought. Maybe League should have speed runs or mini games to satisfy people with your tastes. I'm not saying at all people like you don't belong in the community. But your, mentality doesn't bring any fun or competitiveness to the competitive culture part of the game. There's nothing challenging about "Hey! this guys watched a health bar and pressed a button way better than that other guy who watched a health bar and pressed a button". It's way more exciting and competitive play with and against other players. Anything that can 'nerf' csing should greatly be encouraged. Eliminating csing (apart from jungle camps) all together would be the healthiest change to game since its creation.
6KEMBE4ORBA (EUNE)
: You clearly don't know much.
There are plenty of PVE games out there. League is not a PVE game. Its PVP. People who want to play PvE should play co-op or wait for specific game modes. Don't play ranked games if are looking for a PvE game, its just not designed for you. Play dark souls or something, if you want a an in-depth PvE experience. Gradual decrease in the significance of csing should continue to occur, if not eliminated all together.
6KEMBE4ORBA (EUNE)
: It's quite obvious you're going against League's initial core design in this sentence: >The prior bounty system that only accounted for kills unduly penalized takedowns and _rewarded farming._ **As the latter must be perceived as a bad thing? LOL** CS bounties go against League's core design. (if they were 5% of the current, I would be fine cuz they almost wont matter). I can be fine with 5% of the current CS bounties. Still: 1st: If your're behind or in a unfavourable match up, in order to have a chance at turning the game (or have a chance at all) without only bindly jumping yourself in constant teamfights chaos hoping for the best, you use the already present comeback mechanics in the game (they are present and were in DOTA too): - you farm - you splitpush - you make presssure on the map CS bounties actually go against that. It's a mechanic fostering on chaos forcing constant fights or making constant fights perceived and their actual max-min gains more appealing than you playing the map correctly. 2nd: There are set number of creeps spawning for any given time at the map. If the enemy player(s) CS worse and you CS perfectly, you get a bounty? Why? **So in order to avoid CS bounties you need to keep your relative CS gold lower around the enemies' level of farming/gold? You should CS worse, last hit less? How this doesn't go against League's core?** --- **I have played from season one. ** This patch you've fked over Trynd for Nth time, last patch was a tragic comedy with your Crit Items description and constant babbling "MARSKMEN THIS, MARSKMEN THAT" with no mention/mere changes aimed at taking him in consideration... But your skinsell boy Yasou doesn't get a full revert on his compensations buffs cause "we can't get him hit too hard" while trynd received NOTHING and is getting hit every single goddamn time cuz of other class/champs abusing certain items/runes and you being not capable of balancing properly.
CSing is dumb. Games should be smart. Playing against other players takes intelligence. waiting for a creep to be low health and right clicking it can probably be done by anyone. it takes experience and game knowlege to predict what players are going to do. It takes watching a matching and having a pushable button to cs. So no, perfect cs should not be rewarded as much as actually playing the game.
: I don't know. Trash talking in televised sports has become very frowned upon. Pretty much every pro sport has fines for unsportsmanlike conduct. I highly doubt this is driven by "hurt feelings" but rather by the simple fact that these players are meant to be role models and the sport in question wants those role models to behave appropriately. My real question would be if the team had banned "None" five times, if they would have similarly been punished. I don't think the guys were trying to be sexist so much as their actual statement that it didn't matter who they banned.
Most sports make the distinction between trash talking and taunting. Like, in the NBA you can trash talk, but you can't stare someone down. There are also fines, which seem more appropriate. Like, hey thats not cool here the appropriate fine. Instead of, hey you were kind of a dick you are now banned. I think intimidation is part of sports though. If you are a pro sports person you want every advantage possible. I guess there is also the unique aspect of e-sports being mixed gender. There is balance between being a nice little non-offensive professional and the I'm going to win this game/match so decisively and in a manner that made you even sorry to show up attitude. The former is needed for civility and social acceptability, but the latter provides entertainment and drama.

Wow. Trash talking is a part of sports. If riot wants to be serious and get that sweet ESPN coverage they need to not make their competitive scene a daycare center.
: Wtf is this match making
Looks like you are trying to win too many matches. If you throw a few, your numbers will be more consistent.
Syrile (NA)
: Yasuo is "Fair"
My biggest issue with Yas is that the player doesn't have to time his windwall. I can sort of deal with everything else. I think if there was more skill involved in the windall, it would be more fair. I think it would also be nice if a few more champions had the grounding mechanic.

Removed, unless its something purposely and uniquely built into a champion.

Dr Dog (NA)
: you know what ruins more games? boosted monkeys not only making the lower matches their getting boosted out of not fair but after that they ruin matches for their own teams in higher elo because now they have ti deal with having a bronze brainlet with likely a shitty mental on their team hard feeding because they dont belong
if someone is truly a high elo player, then they should be good enough to compensate. I don't feel the need to baby a small percent of players just because of their rank. You should just be able to pay for entry in a high elo match. That way you don't have to have someone ruin others games. good point.
Voldymort (EUNE)
: Lower elos are alowed to play in any elo too. The problem is they aren't skilled enough to get there. You're acting like that's somehow the former's fault that the latter isn't qualified for high elo. That's kinda sad. Instead of blaming your betters for being better, you should take responsability and git gud. If you can't get to high elo on your own, you don't deserve to be there.
You are very skilled at missing the point. I'm saying high elo players shouldnt be in low elo games too. Its a stupid double standard.

They aren't. There are more barriers than just skill.
: Maybe it's a sign if champs have nearly 80% ban rate, that they're overpowered
For those who are actually good at Yas should be fine with a balanced version. Only so that they can not have their camp perma banned.
: "Why is [Someone else using your account which is against terms of service] bannable but [making a new account] isn't?" I hope that clears it up for you.
I mean I guess I was a little clunky with my original point. Obviously, the literal reason is that people can't use your account. I think there is a reasonable argument to be made that, no matter what your elo is, you should at some point be able to try your luck at other elos. One premise of this argument is that there are people that smurf. So there is precident in the community of players playing in games that are not appropriate for your elo. This is common practice. Using that as a premise (read carefully). Either A) smurfing shoulld be discouraged and punished just as elo boosting is. or. B) There should be a ToS compliant way to boost elo. As a customer, I would love to have access to higher level play. That's something I would be more than willing to pay for. Man, it is hard to get people think about what could be vs. what is.
: Why is [someone else using your account which is against the terms of service] not accessible but [making a new account] is? I don't understand what point you're trying to make. One is actually against the rules and one isn't. That's all there is to it.
Okay, so there should be a way to elo boost and be in compliance with ToS then. I'm just trying to have a conversation beyond "thats against the rules, therefore we don't think about it".
: People thought about it. Your issue here is that people aren't agreeing with you.
Jmman (NA)
: I do this with fiddle sometimes. {{item:3116}} {{item:3504}}. But support doesn't get enough gold to get to play with builds. Unless they are really winning then it doesn't matter what you build. Really wish support got more gold and could actually build cool things.
I'm hoping with the recent ADC item changes we get more access to assists (therefore more gold). But, thats the life of a support I guess. I think it would be cool if there was some sort of gold tied with warding.
: "Why is [Someone else using your account which is against terms of service] bannable but [making a new account] isn't?" I hope that clears it up for you.
then question should be why isn't elo boosting as accessible as smurfing? Seems logical to me. I want to choose to play at whatever elo I want to just as some other people get to.
Jo0o (NA)
: Smurfing is less "acceptable" to Riot and more just not something they can effectively prevent. To really prevent smurfing, individual players would need to be restricted to a single account, and that's not something that can happen without a huge restructuring of Riot's profit structure. I'm all for that, by the way, but it'll never happen. Hiring somebody to play my account and artificially inflate my rank is clearly unfair, and I don't understand your defense of it. My experience of those higher levels of play may be nice, but the four players on my Diamond 1 team don't deserve to be dragged down by my Gold 4 ass.
Reasonable to say they need to fit elo boosting into their profit strats.
