: Hey khmarican, The current functionality of the mute feature is to mute chat and mute the VO of the champion they're using. This doesn't mute SFX or the animation. Are you still hearing the VO?
Yes, also happened with Kog'Maw and Garen /joke command. Besides, if I'm muting blitzcrank, I don't want to hear his SFX either.

: IP & Runes. A problem that needs solving.
Riot should introduce a 3rd currency that is obtained through playing games like IP and EXP, but have this only be used to purchase runes/rune pages. This gives players an additional option to purchase runes while still allowing them to purchase champions. Possibly also allow players to sell back runes for this currency, so buying tier 1/tier 2 runes isn't such a waste
: I just realized something about Demacia and Noxus
In the old lore (retconned, but still) both Demacia and Noxus had mandatory military service. I believe that Demacia had 3 years, mandatory, Noxus had 6. Additionally, Noxians are far more encouraged to remain in the military, as it is one of the best methods of social advancement. So Noxus is more likely to have more experienced soldiers in the field.

What I mean is that, while it's true that the jungle ganks and objective control is very important, a jungler seems less relevant in the mid-late game fights for those objectives and are reliant on the carries to close out the fights.

I was asking if I should switch to another role for a bit, so we'd have at least one lane that would do so in every game. First off, if you're taking a tank/utility jungler then it's quite valid that your ADC and APC will hold greater relevance as damage-dealers in lategame teamfights. But you know, with this kind of thinking, you could call out similar flaws in any role. "It's hard for ADC to have any impact earlygame, and once it's lategame I have a hard time because I'm getting no peel. Maybe I should switch to a jungle tank so I can impact the game more early, and so we can have at least one player peeling lategame." That's a perfectly reasonable statement on the other side of things that I could totally see you saying if you were an ADC main. You choose what role suits you best - that's not something I'm going to try to decide for you. But I will say this - every role has its pros and cons, and at some point you're going to have to settle into a role and accept it for what it is. Other thing is, you're not technically limited to taking a support jungle role. Heavy damage/assassin junglers like Kha'Zix and Rengar are available as options to you as well.

Heavy damage/assassin junglers like Kha'Zix and Rengar are available as options to you as well. Well in that case, should I just learn to play Kha'Zix and Rengar and only play tanks if the team doesn't have any? It's not that I mind playing tanks, it's more that when I jungle, I seem to spend most of my time in mid-late game because at least one jungler has ganked successfully, so it seems like the carries generally are at their strong points more often.

It seems like the jungle is far more team reliant than any other role save support, as there is less potential to swing a fight around if you're at a disadvantage. Huh? As a solo queue role, jungle is arguably the highest impact position in the game, due to your heavy role in the outcome of all three lanes. This may be a bit blunt, but if you feel like you have low carry potential in the jungle, then I think you have to accept the fact that it's YOUR jungling that is low impact, not the role itself.

: Hi, I'm Challenger. Open Q&A thread for anyone looking for advice.
Do you think that, as a jungle main, I should temporarily switch to maining a role with a greater potential to carry until I reach a higher ranking? It seems like the jungle is far more team reliant than any other role save support, as there is less potential to swing a fight around if you're at a disadvantage.

: K so can we give Nidalee the Kassadin treatment now
While I agree that Nidalee is very strong right now, I don't think she needs to be gutted by any means. * It's true that Pounce has no mana cost. However, as an escape, Pounce has a lower range than Riftwalk. While 75 range doesn't seem like much, it greatly limits wall-jumping. Admittedly, as an engage tool, Pounce has a longer range, but it already had that before the Kassadin nerf. Additionally, Pounce does less damage than Riftwalk. * Nidalee's spears can be dodged. **This does not make them weak. I am not making that claim.** However, this means that it is possible to avoid some of Nidalee's damage, especially considering that the width was nerfed a while back. Meanwhile, Kassadin's Null Sphere is targeted and gives him a magic damage shield. * Nidalee's passive gives her movement speed until she triggers a hunt, at which point ONE of her abilities gets bonus damage against ONE target. Compare this to a free 15% magic damage reduction and no unit collision. * Nidalee has no CC except her root, which is against monsters only. * Nidalee is squishy (with her current build path), while Kassadin builds a RoA early (and the previously mentioned free magic damage reduction). * Nidalee has received exactly 2 changes in the past few patches. One allowed her to hunt monsters. The other was a bugfix (technically a nerf) which prevented her from resetting cooldowns except in the 2 cases where it's supposed to happen (Hunting a target, and pouncing said hunted target)

Afeee (EUW)
: yeah but the same passive gives him free AP (A TON OF free AP) on a champ that got 100% AP scaling on ult, 40% on E and W and 50% on Q, so it basically adds a ton of damage to his already overbearing shitty spooky fucking presence free AP with a 100% AP scaling ult, that's TOTALLY LEGIT

: The Jungle Creed
As a jungle main, I agree with EVERYTHING. One of my biggest complaints about some laners is that they think that they own you. It's fine if they ask you to gank, but I have been yelled at SO many times because I didn't gank top...because I was ganking bot. Or, because I was clearing a buff and I don't think the gank would succeed (meaning either save your life, burn a flash/ult, or get a kill/tower) and I'd rather have the buff able to respawn. There is 1 jungler and 3 lanes and many objectives. THE JUNGLER CANNOT BE EVERYWHERE.

Random question from a curious guy: What is the most popular lane in your department?
Udyr (NA)
: eCommerce Q&A
Would you maybe consider slightly reducing the IP cost of champs on the free rotation? This way, if you like the playstyle of a champ who is currently free it is slightly easier to get them permanently, especially for newer players who will often want to try a lot of champions.

Anyone else think that the splash picture of Fnatic Jarvan IV looks like Captain Falcon?
