: Things that dont make much sense about Galio
> Why does Galio Uppercut instead of slam downwards, or across/displace? His passive is a downward slam
: Toxicity stopping new players
Let’s see 144 characters plus more being made Each with 4 abilities and one passive, and sometimes more Tons of items, some of which are useless on certain champions or ineffective Tower plates, towers, inhibitors, inhibitor towers, and the nexus each having their own attack/defensive patterns Dragons, Baron, and herald each giving unique buffs that you need to know And you have to learn all THAT while being yelled at by people who are supposed to be on your side. Yeah I don’t blame them.

Imagine playing him back when he couldn't use his Q on his inner circle. Ooof that must've been hell.
: Riven "Nerfs" lol. Still a permaban for me chief cuz this ain't it.
Nah this is overall a nerf. Small, but a nerf. I’d say her biggest problem right now is the fact that she gets everything while sacrificing nothing. Her single-target-AOE-Physical-True damage-Armor shredding is fine, but not when you’re also a frontline-lifestealing-mobile-tank This makes her more focused on dealing damage in exchange for less shields. But honestly I don’t think the Q change is needed. I’d rather have E have an extra 2 seconds with no Q change than 4 seconds with it. Alright I said my two cents. Go ahead and downvote since I didn’t immediately agree with OP.
: I worry for mordekaiser
{{champion:84}} {{champion:39}} aren’t failures, just balancing nightmares. They still keep what people loved so much about them in the first place while bringing something new and interesting. Akali kept her shroud, her mobile power, and her empowered auto, Irellia kept her bladesurge, her healing, and her auto attack focused playstyle. {{champion:266}} is both though, true.
: Give Xerath a skin already!
Riot: alright FINE. Well give the long range mage a skin. *Lux gets a new skin*
: Im tired of scripters.
Spellshields the super telegraphed Darius Q then flashes away from Darius as Sivir. How is this scripting? This is literally just what Sivir does.
: I wonder if those who made memorial threads feel embarassed. Tahm mains on Boards are increasingly more whiny than Sona mains over deserved changes.
https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/skin-champion-concepts/4d1FBVOi-tahm-kench-changes-from-the-perspective-of-someone-who-loves-him I would be if I cried more. Honestly nerfing the W’s effectiveness is waaaay less toxic

And "certain" is about half of the champs in the game. Plus Lulu's meant to be an overall enchanter, of course she's going to be better than TK when it comes to protecting one guy, if TK was better he'd be overpowered. (thank god there's no people like you in the balance team, jesus) You're one of those people who doesn't read much huh? Read everything I said. "Champions like.... and others" Anyone with strong single target CC or burst is immediately countered by TK. and that's the way it should be. He's not meant to beat out everyone with his W's overbearing utility, he's meant to temporarily protect them. You act like his W is useless now, and it's just not, sure it's less powerful, but it needed to be for the sake of his overall gameplay health as a champion. For as much as I adore him, I know a toxic ability when I see one, and since his release up until this patch, his W was one of those abilities.

Laureall (NA)
: WTF Riot! Forget pro play and give Tahm Kench back his W!!
No these changes are healthy http://www.op.gg/champion/tahmkench/statistics/support He needed the overall effectiveness as his W as a 100% escape nerfed since his release. Now that some power has been brought back to the rest of his kit his Support winratss the best it’s been this season.
: Doing a survey on the Tahm kench changes because riot wont.
I’ve thought they needed to lower the effectiveness on his W since forever, and it needs to happen to increase his overall health, and wouldn’t you know it, but TK Support is actually rising in WR after the change. http://www.op.gg/champion/tahmkench/statistics/support I still think a 95% slow is too much, so if they want him to be a perfect 50 maybe lower it or make it so he can instantly regurgitate someone, but these changes, overall, are very positive, way more than I expected.
: Rest in Peace, Tahm Kench
? http://www.op.gg/champion/tahmkench/statistics/support I’m so confused
Seba7290 (EUNE)
: What D&D alignment would you say Sylas is?
Definitely chaotic SOMETHING, he’s far from lawful. Beyond that he’s not evil, his goal isn’t to rule Demacia or to hurt anyone, but to reveal the mages in their society and to free them. However, he’s far from “good” he manipulated Lux, he’s killed presumably many Demacians, weather that hated mages or not, he’s very aggressive, I’d say chaotic neutral too.
: Zilean didn't get a professor skin
Shit man, on one hand, I agree that Zilean needs/deserves a skin and a professor woulda been perfect, on the other hand I don’t wanna upvote someone who’s willing to vote-bot to feel better about themself

Morgana just got a roster of new skins basically. They were reworked drastically and in many cases for the better. Ashe just got one recently, Camille has gotten two recently, Ekko already has an academy skin, and so on. Are you joking with that list??? There are other heroes far more in need of a new skin than the majority of the ones you listed lol
It’s almost like I went through a list in alphabetical order, got bored, stated “about half of the cast coulda fit the theme” and stopped typing or something.
: But is not "master" a problematic word?
Hey guess what? {{champion:163}} calls {{champion:157}} master Yasuo. It doesn’t really matter.
AIQ (NA)
: Riot Why Pick Graves and Katarina for BA Skins?
They didn’t fill in that 150 day quota for Lux, duh. Also we need more Ahri skins, where’s Ahri riot? get on it.
: So How 'Bout That New Skinline?
I’m appalled they left out Ahri. She too deserves another skin. (I’m joking) But in all seriousness this is starting to get ridiculous. So many champs to choose from and riot only goes with popular ones. Oh and Yuumi. I guess.

: For those who don't know which there are a lot of in my experience playing him top lane and getting "what is that attack speed" after my first blood: After casting an ability, he gets DOUBLED attack speed on his next 2 attacks, does bonus magic damage on hit, reduces the cooldowns of his W and E, and gives a heal charge on his Q (resets his Q cooldown and increasing the healing it does for each hit). What people don't understand is the doubled attack speed part. This isn't just 100% attack speed. If you take alacrity from precision and use 9% attack speed runes you get 127% attack speed for a total of 152% attack speed bonus. Build a single attack speed item with these runes and he breaks the attack speed cap while having a free wits end damage on hit passive. Now for the reduced cooldowns on hit part. Imagine if a different champion permanently had the spear of shojin passive. That is Taric. This is why Taric is trash in urf because he is always playing urf anyways.
Not to mention it scales with armor, so while you’re making enemies auto attacks less effective on you, you’re also gaining more auto damage against them.
Okagemi (NA)
: A Change That Kled Desperately Needs
While I’m pretty sure Riot made the remounting-vunerability thing a purposeful choice I see your point, it sucks to see that you could play un-mounted Kled well enough to build barely Skarl’s courage, only to die as the animation starts and I do think cutting out that frustration would make him a better champion, however i think he’d need a small compensation nerf to the amount of Skarl’s health he gets back for remounting in exchange (nothing big, maybe like 5-10% less at all levels)
: Colorblind Mode - The Shield from Excess Healing is Hard to See
While we’re at it can we get a non-audio signal setting for things like {{champion:14}} and {{champion:240}} Ult?
: When you make a contradictory thread/comment and you know people responding are triggered as hell
Ugh tell me about it though my record’s like 12, so that’s pretty impressive
: Wait, is Yuumi on the PBE?
Nope. Welcome to the boards where people complain about literally everything,
Dr Poro (EUW)
: League of Legends is in season 9. Death recap is still in alpha.
Death recap: Killing blow received by Sion Passive Me: Damn. Even my own champion has the balls to off himself before me.
: can we nerf Hanzo
Yeah, dude Mario’s just way too powerful in Street Fighter. Look at this clip: https://youtu.be/5geQx6Wy318 Total BS.
: Why nerf Akali? (Upcoming nerfs for akali in patch 9.9)
Easiest answer: Riot doesn’t know what to do with her. Excluding maybe {{champion:13}} , {{champion:84}} has the BIGGEST pro-to-casual discrepancy in the game. She’s overpowered, but literally only when she’s mastered, once you know the BS she’s capable of. It’s like when a new champions WR starts low, it’s not because they’re weak, it’s because the people playing them just don’t know how to. Only, Akali takes this to the nth degree. Add on the fact that she’s frustrating to play against, mobile, can snowball, AND has that EXTREMELY powerful shroud, and akali’s just a nightmare to balance. Ok typing this out I change my mind. She’s worse than {{champion:13}}
: Way too many of you are making light of disabilities to insult people who make errors.BLANKing STOP.
> -edit- I'm really disappointed in this community as a whole. the pattern of up and downvotes tells me that the League community as a whole tolerates this type of langauge as flaming banter. I was apparently under a false impression that Riot and the community both generally disapproved of this kind of toxic behavior. Hey man, coming to the boards about this? A HUGE mistake. This is where the toxic vocal minority goes to complain. Like 75% of them here are toxic. (Minus mods, heralds, specialists, concepts and creations, and memes, those people are bro’s)
: why should it? It's an ability that procs on hit effects, not an aa.
It dodges {{champion:81}} and {{champion:41}} Q, and they’re both literally abilities that proc on-hit effects and not AA’s
: Uh, so this sona and taric duo in bot lane, what makes it so effective?
So imagine you have a big wall, and when you damage it, it just heals itself, and just gains more Armor, which not only makes demolishing it harder, but somehow let’s it fight back, which let’s it heal more. Ok now imagine that Voodo wall has a professional builder with a glock protecting it, healing it faster, and shooting at you whenever the manic gets the chance, AND you can’t kill him unless you get through the wall. And finally, imagine both the wall and the gun guy have the ability to make everyone around them harder to kill and better at killing you.
: Stop saying that these champions are unoriginal and plain copies of other champs.
She’s like a less aggressive, more buff focused Rakan. Which is a good thing in my book (kek) as long as they each have reasons to be picked over one another I don’t see the issue.
: You know how you can tone down damage, CC, and mobility in one fair swoop?
I don’t get what you’re talking about there aren’t THAT many 20% CDR I.... {{item:3078}} {{item:3025}} {{item:3110}} {{item:3161}} {{item:3508}} {{item:3285}} {{item:3003}} {{item:3030}}{{item:3071}} {{item:3115}} Ok that’s a lot, but come on, a lot of them can’t be stacked on every champ! You’d need some way to have literal free CDR to do... ** Transcendence, CDR mini-rune, Cosmic insight, ultimate Hunter (which recently got buffed and is getting buffed again btw), presence of mind, ingenious hunter** Huh...
D357R0Y3R (EUW)
: Yi changes by repertoir
So Q buff, making it instant, better when used on any less than 4 enemies, and making the untargetable effect the same now matter how many enemies you alpha strike. These are really fair changes, it does make Yi better at 1v1 and clearing sure, but in exchange he’s getting nerfed elsewhere. Plus now that his Alpha strike has the same untagetability duration enemies with good timing can punish him more effectively. Not much to say on W buff That E nerf is pretty huge, not only does he have no passive, but the true damage conversion is less, I actually hope he gets a little compensation in base AD in exchange for this since that’s going to hurt his early clear so massively early on, or make E an auto reset now or something. Ult MS is no longer multiplicative, but has more bonus movespeed, the Ult is worse for resetting but better on cast, honestly I doubt I’ll notice these changes if I play against a Yi, that attack speed nerf may be more noticeable though. Not bad overall, but besides the Q and E I don’t see how this makes Yi less frustrating.

Read everything I actually said about the W changes before getting all judgy. I stated that a 95% slow would be going too far without compensation AND stated I was unsure if the damage change was necessary. I’m not trying to praise riot here, I’m saying reducing the **effectiveness** of his W in exchange for general buffs is a **healthy** change to him.
