: Honestly IDK why they don't take a % of the timer away based on how many souls you collected. That seems like such an obvious thing to do. You spend 6-12 minutes farming your main powerspike, if you whacked more of one than the other up until the very end that should be rewarded.

It makes little sense for a lockout to even exist.
: Theoretically, you're getting the form that compliments your playstyle. If you're ganking Top or Mid (where most melee characters are), you're usually going up against bruisers and assassins who need you to have that extra CC and tankiness and %HP damage to deal with them. Thus, if you're aggressively camping those types of characters, that's why Rhaast is the first one to unlock for you, and will probably benefit you more in the game you're playing. The flipside is also true. If you're ganking bot a lot, as well as the mid lane mages, that means you're valuing taking out the carries more than the front liners, which is why Shadow Kayn will fit your playstyle better. If their other lanes are also more composed of ranged units, this is also good for Shadow because that means an assassin playstyle will do better than a tankier one against those foes. There are a mild few exceptions of course (Graves, Jayce, Urgot), but for the most part, if you're getting more of one color due to how you're ganking, I believe that the corresponding form will compliment your style of play better for that game.

The problem is Shadow Assassin is a HUGE niche. Rhaast excels into LITERALLY any champion. It is extremely unhealthy for a game like this, especially in the state it is in right now, you are going to be getting Rhaast locked out in 70% of the time.

: Because I've spent around 1000 dollars on this game and I like my skins. Seriously though there is only 1 skin in the game that gives a gameplay advantage and thats Masked Shaco not haveing the Puff of smoke. So its harder to know when he's coming when you don't have vision. Though its been that way since i started in preseason 4. So as you can tell not that big of a problem. Though I hate the cupid varus, and quinn and g.... i mean pink taric

: Eh. I hate cait traps, but they are part of her identity. There IS a point where her sustained damage becomes so bad that the traps are balanced. If they wanna play that game, I'm not gonna cry about it. We'll see if they can hit that point without making cait terrible. EDIT: Also Meddler has stated that more changes are extremely likely. To quote (correctly) "discussion yesterday generally concluded that alone was likely too small a nerf."

I actually copy/pasted ;) So because it is part of her identity the most cancerous part of her kit gets to stay cancer? At this point Caitlyn's identity is to BE cancer. If that is riots theory the should go back and revert every nerf they have ever done to a "champions identity ability." First they should give kassadin back his 700 range blink, then they should revert the Fizz rework and revert his e nerf cooldown since the rework changed his original identity of being a sustained fighter while also being an assassin. Yeah I guess riot was going through the rework of caitlyn they were all dreaming of caitlyn becoming the trap warlock magically summoning traps under her opponents. cancer adc

Cowseed (NA)
: I main Poppy and Akali. I have a higher winrate on poppy and but i'm able to carry more on Akali but since I've started being weary of death I tend to get close to perfect with poppy. If I get top or jungle I play poppy or akali based on whether we have too much ap or ad or if we don't have a tank (yes I play them both jungle). Does this matter as matter as much as I think it does or is there a better way to choose. I am also going to reduce my champion pool to about 5 or maybe 6 champs regardless of them being meta or not. Mostly because I'm about to get a bit more serious with ranked because I'm about to be finished with school for the time being and I have too many negative winrates with champions. The list I'm thinking of is Poppy, Akali, Kayle (need more practice with her though) some support champion (played sona once recently and liked it so I will try to practice this a bit more) and an adc (Cait or MF. Don't really want to play cait because she's generally hated around here and seen as some sort of easy win so that's affected me playing her a bit.) And I _might_ sub out akali for diana because they are similar in a way. So give it to me straight, doc. How much of a chance do you see with this pool?

You can probably get by playing Poppy and Akali. If you want to climb faster I would just one trick Akali/Diana so you can fully understand their kits (knowing the ranges and being able to quickcast everything, knowing how much damage you can do and when you can all in for the kill). You could also just meta slave because Poppy and Akali aren't the best champions at what they do. (Poppy is outclassed by galio, Akali is outclassed by kassadin to an extent). But honestly you can get by with anything if you understand the game so you could just play poppy and akali and learn them and the game at the same time.

: Good at other games like CS:GO and OW, but I suck at League
This game has a huge learning curve. That's why only 8% of the players are plat and only 2% are diamond. Unlike Overwatch and CSGO League of legends is pretty much macro based and you have to use not only skill but also strategy to win games. I don't know what rank you are trying to go for but playing league at a diamond level is DEFINITELY not for everyone. You are going to be playing for at least 3 years before you can get past the diamond 5 shitter gate. Its full of these fucks that get to the lowest rank of diamond and don't want to work for anything more so they just play like whatever the fuck they want so you have to be significantly better than diamond 5 to get out.
Sujiren (NA)
: Thats some good insight, thanks for sharing it. I used to think, that Im hot shit and way better than other people in my division, till I noticed that I win more games in higher ranks than low ranks. Then I realised that its happening, because better players just carry me and Im merely playing good enough to get carried, plus I used to play tanks which are way more forgiving on the mistakes.

I tried maining galio earlier this season. You honestly can only go so far on tanks and you pretty much have to rely on your team. He has one of my highest average KDA's but also a 47% win rate. Unless tanks are able to carry through being tanky while also having sheer damage (Zac right now and cinderhulk meta). But yeah, playing tanks kinda masks where you actually belong in my opinion. I felt like I should have won at least 70% of those games but their carries were simply better. You also are harder to punish for messing up while not being able to push leads as hard.

You don't even know what being overextended means, kid. Being overextended means being in a vulnerable position to getting ganked, so if you get ganked and die, you were over extended. That even means being at YOUR OWN TOWER sometimes. If your playing a garbage ass champion like nasus and you deserve to get your ass camped so the better players can get to diamond. But I guess riot should cater to this plat 2 top lane player that doesn't understand the game so he can play top lane without getting ganked by the jungler ); When/If you get to the higher elos are you going to ask for bot lane to get nerfed too when they rotate top and kill you after they take bot tower?
SatomiKun (EUW)
: Exactly. Read the last patch notes? >[...] Similarly, we think Caitlyn’s at her finest when she’s sniping enemies with Headshot procs off of well-placed traps. Right now, she gets to have that as well as high sustained damage in teamfights via right-clicking. We’re hitting the Sheriff’s scaling with attack speed items to keep her focused on traps as the game progresses. So basically traps are supposed to be her main source of damage. Her trap placement requiring melee range is an absolute no-go.
