: Pyke: Yes, he needs to be nerfed. A 560k mastery point main's perspective.
One of the most fundamentally broken designs ever released. Easy to play, impossible to punish, insane CC and damage with bonus gold to make sure he snowballs at superhuman speed. IMO there needs to be a much longer delay on how long it takes his stun to proc. For one, the area it covers is enormous - unless you have a dash, you are getting hit 99% because it is impossible to avoid by just running to the side. He already has invisibility and his massive healing to make him impossible to chase, then you factor in this ridiculous AOE CC dash??? There is no counterplay other than CC nuke him, which is not an option until mid-late game at which point he has snowballed already and can chain execute your entire team in a matter of seconds. Honestly this champ is fucking disgusting, shit like this makes me hate this game.
: 99% of the games you think are "lost" can or will be turned around easily. Try being a bit less defeatist and thinking the game is completely and totally lost because your ADC missed a single caster minion.

Try being a bit less defeatist and thinking the game is completely and totally lost **because your ADC missed a single caster minion**. that is not the type of situations I am referring to, as clearly stated in my original post. also your 99% statistic is made up and completely nonsensical. technically, 100% of all games are winnable at any point because league is a dynamic experience with too many variables to effectively zero out the odds either way. but that doesn't mean our team is going to, at any point, outscale their 15-0 jynx.
: Yup, this is exemple of mentality that is destroying this game, sure, meta/matchmaking are offenders as well, but hell, in dia, most of my games, even completely comebackable(its dia after all) ends by surrender. When ppl aren't steamrolling opposite team, they won't try...

When ppl aren't steamrolling opposite team, they won't try... that mentality has always existed and will continue to exist for all eternity because of the nature of this game. this is not counter strike where one good player can singlehandedly turn a losing game around. the gold mechanics of league, coupled with the existence of "late game champs" (like my favorite champ to complain about, vanye) make playing through a waste of time the majority of the time. to be honest, I would be THRILLED if they made NORMAL GAMES three-vote surrender and left ranked unchanged, because at least then I could enjoy something without the constant, lingering dread of another horrible drawn out loss.

: Jarvan and aftershocks
been wondering this as well as a J4 main, although generally it's not the best rune on him regardless
: Jesus Christ, just remove Tahm's ally Devour at this point.
sad to see one of the cooler champs get dumped in the trash like this rip big fish

: Master Yi? Just CC him.
Yi is a stupid brainless champ but really if he is building full damage your team should be able to destroy him with a single hard CC. the reason he is so good at low ELO is because nobody knows how to coordinate or focus targets properly which is how he ends up with a pentakill even after you started the fight by locking him down. seriously, I cannot tell you how many times I've started a fight by putting a fed Yi on lockdown with Jarvan, only to have my team either not react or start targeting the other enemy champs instead of unloading on the little shithead. got so sick of it actually that I've started playing Yi instead of my main because no one in silver knows how to handle him after he gets his third item.
: Yi highlander changes.
figures. Just had a game where I counter jungled the ever-living fuck out the enemy Yi as J4, dude was 0-5 at 12 minutes. Is 5-5 by ~18 minutes, and even though I buy thornmail as my third item it doesn't matter because guinso + bork is unstoppable. He ended up with 20+ kills and we were steamrolled. Glad riot is helping this poor, underpowered champ out

: when the jungler dosent campp you but the other jungler does,
if you are getting camped and repeatedly dying to the enemy jungler there is like a 95% chance that: 1. you are constantly pushed which makes dangerous/difficult for me to gank 2. you are not properly warding around your lane which makes it difficult for me to counter-gank to reiterate, if the enemy jungler if having heir way with you, it means that you are making yourself an easy target. trust me, us junglers are always, ALWAYS looking for the path of least resistance when it comes to gank targets, and with things like proper warding, it quickly becomes obvious which enemy laners aren't using utilizing vision, are playing too aggressively, pushing recklessly, etc. if you're getting camped, there are steps that YOU need to take (vision control, lane freezing, etc) before you bitch at the jungler, who should (hopefully) be focusing on other more profitable lanes
: Why are we penalized so hard for duoing in ranked?
I think the system needs to be reevaluated for lower ELOs, two silvers playing together are still gonna get rolled by a team of golds, these aren't high-skill players that are using coordinated tactics, they are just dumb friends trying to play meaningful games together. I also think that a lot of the bitching about super lopsided low ELO games is because of duo queue balancing fucking everyone up. I'm silver, if I'm solo and my bot lane is a silver duo, I'm, not holding my breath for them to carry, and especially not when the deck is stacked against us with golds. Honestly you are much better off playing solo if you are trying to climb out of elo hell, my solo win rate is like 30% higher than with my friend who is the same elo as me. Shit's whack.

Who knows, you might be even grateful to the champ. I feel like you've missed my central thesis, which is that this brainless and oppressive early game champ transitions into being useless in the endgame with zero in between, but okay
: What took Maokai out of the jungle?
takes 40 years from him to take a scuttle, and you have to pray that the other jungler doesn't show up

: Anyone realized that Jinx has 55% win rate and 18% pick rate?
She is very strong but doesn't feel oppressive the way other ADCs (looking at you, Vanye) do. Early game is ass unless the other lane is mindlessly feeding her kills, and she has a lot less self-peel compared to Vanye, Ezreal, Luc, etc. She should probably be looked at though, if anything nerfing the movespeed bonus she gets on kill, after they get Vanye ofc...
: Jungle & Support summed up in one quote
me: successfully ganks bot 3 times in a row and gets the ADC fed our top lane who is always pushed and never has wards: gg r%%%%% jungle lost lane every time

: why do we even have matchmaking
It's absurd, they could at least average the two ranks for normal. either way, it seems hard to believe that even with separate ranks for each queue, that a lineup like this would be possible

@player vehicle, not really surprised that someone who plays league is being extremely hostile about something they don't really understand, go figure. You seem like a nice guy. I'm too lazy to quote, but lets see here. 1. Not really sure what Verizon in like 1998 has to do with Verizon in 2017? Verizon didn't have an ex-employee pushing their agenda as the head of the FCC back then. They do now. 2. Compared to what we pay versus what we get, broadband in the United States is garbage. But okay. 3. Not even sure where to begin on your utility rant. You mean huge corporate tax breaks like the ones Congress is trying to force through right now? Part of the purpose of net neutrality is to limit the effect of market power these firms wield, so being immune to antitrust legislation as utilities is not as big a deal as in other sectors. Plus, if yesterday's Disney - Fox merger is any indication, the administration doesn't care much about enforcing those laws (and please try and tell me blocking the AT&T - TW merger was not about CNN). If it's such a non-issue then why are the ISP's so desperate to get rid of it? 4. Boohoo is not an argument, if these companies were held accountable ever - i.e if we had other options, they wouldn't be able to treat customers like trash. So yes, giving them more power is not a good thing. 5. Not sure what you mean "shifting power from Google & Facebook" to ISP's. Last I checked, Google can't cut off your internet access. Living without Facebook is much easier than living without any internet all. That's funny that you want to classify this as a corporate war to make it sound like my concerns on the ground level aren't justified. Big companies like Google and Facebook stand to benefit from all this since they are the ones with the financial ability to survive in an unregulated environment. 6. Again, if the regulations aren't doing anything then why are the telecoms so thirsty to get rid of them. Oh, but the companies swear that they won't do anything bad. I feel *so* reassured. 7. No shit there's money to be made. But in earlier posts you talk about how we should bend over because now the ISPs are gonna be so incentivized to upgrade their aging hardware. So don't "muh infrastructure" me. At the end of the day this is only about the profit margins of the telecoms and the subsequent cash donations to the campaigns of their shills in congress. 8. Yeah I feel really great about consumer protection laws in our withering regulatory environment. I am sure if Trump decided to abolish the BBB or whatever that you could conjure up some empty argument about how that was good for us too. 9. "Like seeing silicon valley and reddit cannibalize themselves." /pol detected. Why don't you crawl back to your Chinese cartoon echo chamber?

All the people claiming to understand economics as a defense of the ruling yesterday are shills or just parroting Verizon-sponsored talking points. Broadband access in the United States is the slowest and most expensive in the developed world, and it's not like this is a recent development. Investment in infrastructure didn't come to a grind because the rule change in 2015 because it wasn't really happening to begin with. Even with Americans having access to two or three broadband providers doesn't change the fact that these firms effectively operate regional monopolies, giving them tremendous market power with little need to innovate, financial incentives be damned. Everyone has a horror story about dealing with their ISP, and knows what a nightmare it can be to be without internet and at their mercy, so even if you are convinced this is somehow a good economic idea, the prospect of giving these companies even more power (and codifying it, as opposed to pre-2015 where the legality was still a grey area) should concern you. Not to mention this is the exact same trickle-down logic that says corporate tax-cuts will create higher wages and new jobs via reinvestment when in reality those profits get pumped into stock repurchases and bonuses. It's not like these companies aren't already massively profitable. Do you really think they have spent millions lobbying for this change because they want to "improve infrastructure" (which is a buzzword) and make the internet better for all of us? What actually has happened is that the current administration has made it clear that they will support they removal of any and all regulation, and have somehow managed to trick people into believing they will be better off without a regulation that actually protects them from shady practices. source- I have a B.S in economics (from a conservative school)
