: Morde is still fucking brokne
Dodge his spells. Pick {{champion:67}} {{champion:236}} {{champion:92}} {{champion:84}} {{champion:114}} {{champion:23}} {{champion:69}}, Anyone that has range, good dueling, or spells to counter him. If you don't dodge E you die. He is much more telegraphed than other juggernauts like Darius or Garen. Abuse him when his E and Q are down. If he ults you, kite him and be creative. Try to find bushes to hide in or flash over walls to stay safe.
: Can someone explain why he's so hated? So far 4 people have mentioned him but he doesn't seem as obnoxious as people say.
Hook is just an annoying mechanic in general and his passive healing is unfun to play against. He punishes mistakes so hard but it's hard for him to get punished by mistakes.

: Mordekaiser skins are unfinished
The same thing for Akali too, she has two 950's with no vfx or new animations at all and one 520 that has only part of the passive's vfx. It's disappointing that Pantheon gets special treatment compared to all the other reworks.

: The proportions for Jinx's waist in Project splash art is weird af
The same technique is used for Kalista skins to make her seem like shes about to spring up and jump at you. With the jinx skin it's too exaggerated imo it almost looks comedic and in a skinline like project that's very dark/serious it doesn't really fit. The pose shes in seems like it would be for an arcade skin or something.

: I vote neither. Akali needs re-reworking. Granted Riot is getting rid of Obscured (which is what they should've fucking done in the first place), but I still think even without Obscured, she's going to still be busted in competitive play. Riot needs to actually take the champion right back to the drawing board.
I don't think she will be a popular pick in proplay anymore tbh. {{champion:4}} can make her useless for a whole fight. And now her highest damage spell is a unreliable skillshot.
ytf (NA)
: The State of Akali
9.14 changes fix whats wrong with her. Riot can then focus on buffing her for the majority of the player base. shes definitely going to be weak after the changes though. Imo lower the cd on ult and lower the recast timer on R from 2.5 to 1.5.
: Who are your top 2 champs per position? Please comment
Top: {{champion:84}} {{champion:10}} Jg: {{champion:28}} {{champion:518}} Mid: {{champion:84}} {{champion:518}} Support: {{champion:40}} {{champion:84}} Adc: {{champion:145}} {{champion:222}}
: What are you're thoughts on Akali right now?
W nerf is good, Q needs higher ap scaling still. E is a decent buff but it's sort of a pseudo buff because it mostly affects late game and late game you aren't using it to snipe, its mostly used backwards with Q. I'd say to make her balanced, fix all the bugs she has, then just add an exta 10% ap scaling on Q OR reduce the cd from her ultimate from 120 back to 100 IF the buffs from 9.14 aren't enough. She is NOT going to be good in proplay after 9.14 anymore as long as {{champion:43}} {{champion:64}} {{champion:4}}{{champion:25}} are viable picks. TF ult renders Akali useless for a whole fight and proplayers will communicate to save it for when she engages. Riot will finally be able to balance around the average player base which is good.

: Very cool, I would love to see this, but feminists and SJW will cry about too much bobs and vegana and won't be in game
people dont usually care about champions showing skin when its appropriate. look at kaisa vs eve: people mad about kaisa because shes sexualized when she basically has a void monster on her, riot still showed cleavage and made her have a beautiful unscathed face. people were happy about eve's design even though shes essentially naked. she is a demon succubus and her design reflects that. her design is empowering and is one of the best in the game.

: Should I play akali
Yes, she's also getting changes soon so learning her mechanics right now will help you adapt faster to those changes. I would suggest to play her mid and top though.
: Is that first one Warring Kingdoms? If that's the case, unfortunately, I think that'd have to be a Chinese New Year skin(that's what that line is for, yes?), possibly for Year of the Dragon from the looks of it. The other ones are all very nice. I'd take the Cosmic one if it came with Cosmic Bard, honestly. Bonus points if Dark Star TK is also included in the deal.
They could switch up the colors a little and make it a soaring sword skin like Fiora's or Irelia's

Yeah they are a little bit too expensive. Hope people wait to buy them and Riot sees that and then changes the price

It would just make her a E-R-flash-Q3 bot in teamfights, which looks cool but would be frustrating to play against.

: My thoughts on TFT, right off of 8 hours of playing this thing lmao.
gunslinger and yordles are really bad imo. I also wish you were rewarded more early for building a composition with synergies, early it just seems like anyone with a high level champion wins. also sometimes RGN is super frusturating, item drops are sometimes lackluster or op and rerolling feels shitty when you have multiple 2's of a champion and can't find a third one.
: I would like to see a female vampire I think the abilities would be a good fit to the game as well as the character. But she needs to look good lol
Yeah there's really none in league, {{champion:28}} is the closest I think. She still doesn't really have the fantasy of a vampire though, shes more like a shapee shifting siren.

She did need a rework, she was in a similar place as Irelia. Pre-rework she was extremely stat check and didn't have much counter play in low elo.
Kazekiba (NA)
: If her WE isn't that great you wouldn't be writing this giant blog post defending it. It's an overbearing and unnecessary mechanic that no other champion has and makes it more difficult to counterplay Akali than it does to help with her ability to perform. Thus, trimming it is a positive outcome and allows for more outright power behind the ability, which shows in the AP ratio. 70% bonus AD -> 28 damage from a completed Gunblade. Assuming this is all of her bonus AD, thats all you ever get out of it. 40% AP scaling means it matches the old damage with just {{item:1026}} {{item:1052}}, plus 70% of her base AD included with the AD she gets from gunblade. Also means Bruiser Akali can come back, finally {{item:3074}}{{item:3163}} {{item:3139}} {{item:3071}} {{item:3009}} {{item:3026}}
> It's an overbearing and unnecessary mechanic that no other champion has It's essentially a Zed R blink that requires extra setup. > Bruiser Akali can come back, finally Bruiser Akali is unhealthy for the game and Riot doesn't want her to go in that direction. > makes it more difficult to counterplay Akali than it does to help with her ability to perform It does help with her ability to preform.

Her combo requires her to get close to the enemy tower and isn't as fast as other assassins, the jungler can show up while or after you're in a fight and just kill you. Akali needs to play aggressive to succeed. The only place where Akali really abuses safety is in pro play.

: Insane how many of the new reworks/releases need to be gameplay updated very soon after, huh? It's like the guys who made them have no hands to test the champions when played at peak performance and have no clue how to make them work without pumping overtuned functions in their kits. Plus Akali has a 46% WR so most of the Akali players could use a less brain intensive kit looks like.
> Plus Akali has a 46% WR so most of the Akali players could use a less brain intensive kit looks like. With that logic, Yuumi is a 44% win rate champion. Maybe we should just give her a less brain intensive kit as well...
: They have a similar skill ceiling but a lower skill floor. It's easier for a newer player to play Riven or Yas than it is for a new player to play Akali. The issue is the skill difference between the lowest and highest ranks. From Iron to Challenger is such an insanely huge difference that if someone has too much skill expression they'll be broken in high elo but useless in low elo. The lower skill expression a champion has, the less that difference matters. When Riot does this, they're looking out for the 75% of their playerbase that it will be better for.

She can sit in shroud and have her team enable her to assassinate. She can wait in her shroud and execute whoever her team was able to get low enough with R2, the same reason why Urgot is also good in pro play.

: Rn she's too overloaded, the re stealth increase is a very NEEDED change, and tbh, her overall kit needs to have less synergy, its too punishing to players vs an akali master, she can literally win any lane after 6 rn so long as she can survive the initial leveling (which in top doesn't even matter since most tops are melee anyways, meaning she wins the lane right there) i wouldnt mind seeing some more early dmg nerfs aswell, or maybe even a cost increase on her early Q, laning against a good akali is not interactive gameplay its just anti fun
> laning against a good akali is not interactive gameplay its just anti fun {{champion:92}} {{champion:157}} {{champion:412}} {{champion:268}} {{champion:119}} {{champion:55}} {{champion:76}} > she can literally win any lane after 6 rn so long as she can survive the initial leveling She loses against most midlaners that can peel for themselves. {{champion:99}} {{champion:45}} {{champion:518}} > which in top doesn't even matter since most tops are melee anyways, meaning she wins the lane right there {{champion:122}} {{champion:58}} {{champion:68}} {{champion:92}} {{champion:24}} {{champion:39}} These champions all counter/ are skill match ups against Akali. The only instances where Akali "autowins" the lane are basically tanks who can't really do anything to her and even then, they still are able to outscale her unless they feed super hard.

Ahri is also ranged and ranged hard cc that isnt 0.25 seconds long. Akali's ult is also her only play making tool. She can only do 3 q's in a combo until she runs out of energy, she can only do two without w which is a 20 second cd. Her E is also a 16 second cd. She needs her ultimate to secure kills unless the enemy doesn't respect her damage. > If you're that scared of a gank don't use Q and passive then.
