: This isn't normal for when you end up having to solo the duo lane?
Bot doesnt just have more EXP. The way EXP Share work is as follows: when more than 1 champion is sharing minion experience, 24.73% extra experience is split among all champions. Two champions each gain 62.36%. Three champions each gain 41.57%. Four champions each gain 31.18%. Five champions each gain 24.95%.
: I mean I see nothing wrong here, all solo laners hit level 2 after 1 full wave, and have for as long as I can remember.
Its 7 creeps to level 2 in a solo lane.

: Only if we stop pretending that naut/leona aren't OP. Senna is one of the few supports who can actually punish these broken engage supports. Remove Senna from being a viable option to counter this trash no-skill-land-a-random-hook-to-win-lane-phase-and/or-game support meta and we're left with the same support meta for another year, no thanks.
Not that I'm disagreeing with you (I could deal without a leona dealing 700 damage level 5) engauge was pushed to being at the top via direct buffs to Naut Blitz Leo. Senna is just overperforming in a meta that she *shouldnt* having this much performance in.

PEOPLE PLAY NEW CHAMPS. OTHERWISE THEY NEVER LEARN THEM. Feel free to take this the wrong way but, your argument falls apart when pitted versus reality. The OP issue was she is too strong. The reasons given are high pick rate, high ban rate and high win rate. To suggest "well she is new that is why the high pick rate" is reasonable but it falls flat as an argument that therefore she isn't over tuned. The historical evidence of league is the higher the pick rate the worse the winrate for balanced champions because every yahoo is trying them out where as champs with low pick rates tend to have higher win rates because only avid fans of that champ play the champ and know it very well. Another piece of anecdotal evidence that flies in the face of your argument is that she is new so most people will perform very bad until they learn her kit and the thousands of interactions that can occur with the other 150+ league champs. Normally new champs perform very poor with very poor winrates, riot knee jerks over buffs them and once people figure them out they are way over tuned. In this case she already has a high win rate high pick rate and people are still learning how to play her she is clearly over-tuned by those metrics and most likely needs a real nerf. but hey you are posting from a silver 3 account whos most played champ is senna and has a 30% winrate so yea...im probably typing to a brick wall.
: Time to stop pretending Senna is balanced?
We dont even need to talk about winrates. She has a 60% ban rate; literally the highest in the game at the moment, second being Yasuo at 46%.
: I don't think her sup win rate is quite as high as you think? I just checked leagueofgraphs and her support winrate Is 51.6%, her adc winrate Is 54.6%. The adc winrate is a tad high, but less people play her adc apparently. If anything, her numbers could probably get tuned down a bit, but I think Senna is pretty okay currently. But, I also like playing her, so take that with a grain of salt.
Regardless if you want to argue whether or not a 51% WR on a support is healthy or not, she is still sporting 60% ban rate. Thats enough to get a nerf.
: And typically when a champ is new that means people are still figuring them out. Remember Yuumi everyone? Super low winrate at first and then it started getting out of control. Rito will probably nerf her once the True Damage hype wears off though.
This is statistically one of the highest win rates ever seen on a new champion. Shes overperforming in a meta that shouldn't be favoring her. Its very clearly overtuned why on earth are people defending this.

Nerf. Supports are now supposed to clear waves when the quest gets completed. 4 items shouldn't revert 10 years of champion designs.

Yep, not sure whats up either. Jumps from 20 to 70. Feels real bad

Why does Riot seem to hate Aurelion Sol...
: Riot can you comment on why the winners of Worlds can no longer pick the champ their skin goes to?
All players do that. We usually just don't hear about the other ones. Its about the concept that Riot has to show the winning team for an OK. Sometimes, the team aesthetic just doesn't look good on a champion, or, the player is dissatisfied with how it looks. They prepare idea for all 3 choices, the one the player chooses is the one that will get refined. You happen to be cherry picking a quote and making an assumption.

Whats the point in buffing Kalista's dead ability? Most players wont even take a point into it until both Q and E are maxed.
: There are video options for Contrast, brightness and color levels. But taking away effects would give an unfair advantage.

: Does anyone else feel like me when it comes to Prestige Qiyana?
I find it unlikely that Qyianna will be available through the Worlds tokens when Snowdown lines up much closer to the release date. If not, it will be on both.

: Why isn't Vayne, the most iconic champion for true damage, not a part of "True Damage"
Similar to K/DA, the group name doesn't have anything to do with the champions that were selected, its just a name that gives tribute to the game. I think you might be reading too much into this, no one on true damage actually does it.
: Ashe the Forgotten Support ADC.
Yea no clue what your talking about. There is a huge difference between a supportive champion and a champion with utility. She builds and plays like a carry, not a support. There are many champions who had that "Support secondary" classification. Syndra for example, back on the old client with the first classification system she was labeled as a mage support - Syndra's burst and superb ability at being an assassin stat checker pushes her into the mid lane. ** Champions may be designed to fit certain roles but then as a community we find better uses for them**. Tahm Kench was designed as a top laner, but his kit was very strong in the support role - so thats where he ended up, _and thats what he ended up getting balanced around_. Saying that Riot doesn't care about their champions is a total fallacy, they care about how _we, the players, are using the champion. Not because they think we need a champion that happens to be a "support marksmen"_ This is kinda like saying Sivir is a support because she has a strong team fighting ultimate; Riot encourages creativity, but it sounds more like you are frustrated everyone else doesn't use the champion the way you like it.

: > Oh it’s for worlds. How about you stop fucking over the player base for worlds. Seriously what is that .02 of the player base? Well it's a lot more than .02% of the playerbase that watches worlds and it would be nice to not watch the exact same matchups 30 games in a row. They also normally revert a lot of the changes in preseason, so you only have to put up with the worlds meta for a little over a month. Your other complains however are valid and I agree.
If not just the 2 weeks. 9.18 is the soul patch Worlds gets played on, 9.19 changes have no impact on Worlds.
: Patch 9.18 notes
: In Minecraft the x axis is forward backward an the z is side to side. Y axis is vertical just in real life. The z gives depth to things
_"Usually, the X and Y axes are used when talking about length and width, and the Z is used for height. However, in Minecraft, the X and Z axes represent length and width, and Y represents height. As X or Z increase or decease, you are moving farther away from 0, 0 , or the "center" of your Minecraft world. Jul 3, 2011"_ Perhaps I chose a bad example lol
: Wouldn’t this be a y-axis bug though since it’s vertical?
A board game would only have X and Y, because we are looking at one plane; the board. In a 3D game, Z becomes a factor because Y is now a direction, Z represents height. In fact the best example I could give you would be minecraft. The whole game is plotted like a graph. You move around the world with X and Y coordinates, but that doesnt mean the Z axis is changing. If you were to mine straight down though, only the Z would change and the X and Y would stay the same. If you think about the volume of a square _Base x Width x Height_ , you could apply it to this by saying _X x Y x Z_

Mr Meat (OCE)
: Just like League, riot doesn't want a balanced game. They haven't taken steps to actually balance the game as a whole in years. Every change they make addresses the individual champ, the individual item, but never how things interact in this "sandbox" per se. The amount of oversight they have in regards to their patch notes, brings me to the point where I simply cannot believe that riot is interested in anyway of finishing their game. They'd rather just perpetually change it to artificially keep the game alive, thought that does work nonetheless.
As a very general reminder, if we look back at the founding design philosophy of the game, we were told that the game was never supposed to be balanced. The game was just supposed to be constantly changing. This expectation that the game needs to be perfectly tuned is just unrealistic and is something that there has been no game company has been able to do. If you take a look back at the original street fighter 2, a perfectly balanced game is boring. As a community we undervalue change.
: Really sad that {{champion:266}} Aatrox's revive got removed in his ult. Removing that is also removing one of Aatrox's unique identities and strengths in League as a whole and is one reason I like to play him. I hope one day it returns though even in a different form again.
It was also the only thing that was in his old kit. Not the most successful rework
: Patch 9.14 notes
Also I like how they disguised this lux buff as a nerf with some minor changes to the abilities that we have been talking about being either too strong or non-consistent with other similar abilities.
: Patch 9.14 notes
People getting buffs before they get skins is a meme, but its hard to dismiss it when you have things like this Pyke buff. The first part is a nice quality of life change, but getting 600 Gold on a lethality building "support" is the biggest oversight I think I have ever seen out of the balance team. If he can stun jungle camps, you just created a better version of the oppressive Cammile we had earlier this season.

: You're able to delete one champion from the game, who goes?
I'd yeet Pyke out the window. Although deleting Cait is really interesting, is there a particular reason why? She cant build Runnans anymore, and I'd think that Jinx and Trist would have better "Rapid Fire" kits.
: Volunteer hours?
You could host an hour of code event (even if you are not big on programming, there is a ton of support for it), Diversity Clubs, you could reach out to help with someones adopt a highway program. If you have a nature center nearby, they are always looking for help planting / cleaning. Library's appreciate a solid book shelver. If you are doing it for college, try to look for something kinda major specific; this isn't always an option, but it definitely helped me when I was applying for the CS program in particular. I think the best way to get volunteer hours are to vest your time in things you are passionate about. If you can't find anything (and you are willing to throw in some extra work) perhaps a service learning project is what you need. Best of luck!
: Why didn't Qiyana receive any emotes?
I think its because she was part of an event; but so was Neeko. She feels rushed to me, I think it has to do with TFT being on the last week she was too.
: Learn More: Arcade 2019
For anyone peeping this right now trying to figure out how much you are gaining and losing, here is the optimal way to generate enough tokens for P. Cait. If each loss (on SR) gives 6 tokens, assuming you were playing blind pick and FF'ing at 15 each game, here is how long it is going to take you. 60 minutes in an hour / 15 minutes (min amount of time to ff) = 4. 4 games an hour * 6 tokens a loss = 24 tokens a minute. 2000 tokens / 24 = ~83.5 hours. This is excluding matchmaking and pick time, but the missions should be able to keep the numbers consistent. Because winning a game has fluctuating game times, as far as Im aware, this is the fastest way to cap the skin. Best of luck!
: The game has existed for 10 long fucking years, and the client is still trash?
The client is really just a big internet browser; similar to Steam. The problem is that the Windows version of the client runs off of Internet Explorer, not Edge, not Chrome. In the most recent Riot Pls, they talked about a client update that swaps over to a Chromium based browser. This *is* a lot more difficult then it sounds. Keep in mind, this is the same client that 1. Processes store purchases 2. Runs Hextech 3. Gives you news and connects you with your friends network 4. Connects you to the server with a game ID token to launch the game. (This is why the game and the client are 2 seprate windows, rather then just 1 like in every other mainstream moba) Although I am not going to make excuses for the client, that, should have been close to perfect after the update; I will at least share what would be the benefit-of-the-doubt. I would imagine they would want to swap the browser type over before they made any changes. When you contact Riot about bugs like the store not opening up or games not starting, they tell you to check your IE settings. On the old client, there was a way to find the links the client was using too. Keep in mind, they effectively need to rebuild the client from the ground up to swap the browser type.
