: My totally not different promo games
0-100 LP, sane junglers, mids ping mia, bot lane doesn't feed series promo: 9/0 enemy vayne before i can hit lvl 6 in top, i get an ahri they go 0/0/0 in 30 minutes, a bunch of fail nunu

: Who is Morde Supposed to be good against?
He's virtually broken overpowered when he gets the chance. Problem is, there's literally nowhere in the game he can safely generate gold. Too easy to gank for mid and top, no jg presence, bot laners reach stormrazor before he reaches gunblade or liandry/rylai. Morde himself really isn't that bad, the game as a whole just makes it difficult for him to exist.

: tank Viktor toplane 9% pick rate 52% win rate
i tried top klepto viktor & karma plenty of times but i didnt think "oh pocket pick at worlds" lmao "gut it" of course yall we'd rather have exclusively ornn vs sion or urgot vs aatrox right that's fun top viktor is only good against crap heroes like urgot and aatrox that have such short windows of aggression, which usually zone out other melee by default but make them gold batteries for actual ranged somebody brings something that actually "wins" match up creatively and its a problem! what innovation you must inspire in your solo queue games! here's an idea, where's your top malz pick to counter it? or cowl maokai with ganks?

they didnt give his w a serious damage boost. it is a straight nerf requiring you to land two abilities. his W max lane was very good harassing people when they go to cs. now he can not do that. his W is now single target as opposed to aoe, that is a straight nerf. how is any of this "more reliable" lol edit: then they made the cooldown much longer to boot

Rioter Comments
: 100% just made Toplane ranged vs Melee match ups more cancerous
The truth hurts. I almost feel like it will make turret diving, or at least, bullying under turret, more prevalent, jg just rotates through all 3 lanes not even ganking, just shoving and scrapping shields for gold lmfao
: Meddler On Worlds 2018 - ''No champions should be 100% pick/ban, or very close to it''

Ætheist (NA)
: Okay, so let's say they balance around silver players. You'd make a game where nobody wants to climb ranked because there'd literally only be ~10 viable champions past gold.
so, exactly the way it is now?
: I think a good nerf for Jhin would be to make his move speed only apply to the fourth shot instead of every crit. Because the fourth shot is supposed to be the powerful one, and he doesn't get to auto for like 3 seconds after, so he may need the move speed to get away while he can't auto, but he shouldn't get that move speed on every attack.
the only reason he gets so much move speed per attack is BECAUSE of storm razor. Other ADC can't abuse it the same way he can, he can auto and Q, run away at light speed to cast W, run back in another crit, a third shot, another crit. Three crits, two spells, one item, zero counterplay.

: Toxicity
just wait until playing ranked again and you can experience toxicity in all 10 of your 10 games.
: Why don't we just, dunno, get rid of Runes and Masteries alltogether?
Something always bugged me about runes and masteries, they put a lot of effort into champions base stats and the damage and scaling of their abilities, only to go so far out of their way to ruin their own designs. All of these ABSURDLY niche picks like Aftershock and Kleptomancy that offer some champions absurd bonuses, then other champs like Urgot are like "Well i guess my best choice is free summoner spells" which is such a wildly random benefit, either a ghost or exhaust gets you the kill or you sit on an exhaust when you should have TP available for a roam and it throws the game, YAY! Runes Reforged was the literal - and I've seen a lot - literal worst patch I have ever seen, in any game. They spent so long with total radio silence, not about that the problems were being fixed, but that they even knew what the problems were.
: > Where in any of this damn data, is it okay for around 20 champions to completely dominate the entire game? And again fans whine that the natural evolution of a game only allows certain champions to be the best. Want to see more than 20 champions? Stop treating ranked like the only game mode and play normals more.
but when i play normals i literally only see the same champs because they are always banned in ranked so thats the only place people play them, baited and outsmarted myself

: I feel like meta in this season dictates what you can and can't play more than in any other season previously. I peaked d2 this season playing nothing but immobile mages and I can't get past d3 now because my champions need to scale and this game is revolved around early. So cheese and assassin shit dominates and does everything easier/better than my "oh so unlucky to not be meta" pool of champions that I know I perform on well. So you either have to play cancerous champs that you hate with passion or get forced to invest around 500+ more games to MAYBE rank up with what you like which isn't meta. Fucking balance team.
"meta" here being a code word for RUNES REFORGED. I think it was meteos who said before the season started that it was going to be dictated by which champions abuse the runes rather than which runes are fun for your champion. oh look klepto biscuiteer stopwatch gangplank and hail of blades jhin.
: Why Do I Even Bother Playing This Game Anymore
I'm not sure how to tell you this, but if you are winning your lane as Jayce, like, that's literally the bear minimum requirement for playing Jayce to begin with.
: Minion Block Needs To Be Addressed
Rift herald actually trapped me one time in a ranked game. A single unit! A single unit literally prevented me from moving as Sion. I had to teleport out of the pit for crying out loud. Minion block has been getting worse I swear, and on top of that, it makes super-minions not attack nexus turrets (I'm sure I'm not the only one who watches these things do the fandango) because they're getting fizzled out every time they try to move, so they stutter to another target, then another, and another... never actually attacking. They should not remove body-blocking from champions or minions, but it definitely needs to be addressed in its current form.
: Curious How Popular This Idea Is...
I've often said it's how the game SHOULD be, but since flash is the omg outplayed button, we have to keep it zzzz heaven forbid we balance champions to not die instantly so the difference between mobility and having three dashes/blinks isn't so egregious.
Wolfeur (EUW)
: People complain about CertainlyT, but they usually miss the point. "Kit is overloaded", "Broken ability", "Overpowered"… CertainlyT's champions are often frustrating because they require you to think more about your opponent, which people often don't do. "Could Zoe be behind that wall?", "Does Yasuo have his windwall?", "Where will Kalista jump?", "Is Thresh's lantern ready for a surprise gank?". But the point of this is that once you understand how to deal with it, the match-up becomes way simpler, and easier to outplay.

More options is more capability. The option to close two screen lengths with a lantern flash, or a flash portal, and instantly kill somebody, is not like "oh wow i shoulda thought about that, damn outplayed" it's just overtly overpowered in comparison to their contemporaries
: Unpopular Opinion: Yasuo is the fairest out of the AA focused fighters
all of this is assuming you have a decent match up, so many champions just have no recourse, no real options. they lose early, they lose late, they just don't stand a chance. you can't always pick last in solo queue folks, so let's not live in the land of make believe. you can't zhonya like zed, you can't even build armor because of his penetration and conq/ie true dmg. you can't run. and his laning phase just keeps getting better, every trade is a win for him since he just wastes time in between csing building his (level 1 100 hp) shield, and it's not like malphite or garen, who have to stay out of combat. i'd love to see you outplay being lee sin ulted and yasuo ulted. so much skill expression! i can _almost_ pretend

: Happy 2:30 everyone
It's after 2:30 somewhere, I think Jimmy Buffet said that.
: pyke is way too strong if your not trolling with him.
It took me a while to figure out which of Pyke's spells were which since they all do so many things. He really does have way too much going for him under the guise of "but no bonus hp!" when I'm pretty sure nobody likes that design to begin with, and most assassins don't build bonus hp anyway. And to boot, MANALESS, which makes me more upset than anything else. Honestly, just now looking up the numbers, there's NO REASON his movement speed steroid should be starting at 60% at level one AND scales with bonus AD. That's abhorrent. I'd be fine with the scaling being very high, if the base was only 20-30% at rank 1 and scaled to 50-70% at rank 5. Blitzcrank's starts at 70%, but conversely, slows him at the end of it (and he doesn't have sustain or a dash, so he needs it - it's thematic with his kit). Mana gates everything blitzcrank does, even his passive. Pyke is getting everything for free - free sustain, free damage, free free free.

There is more to an appealing AP fighter fantasy besides "Hit 2.5as but deal magic damage right clicks instead of AD". Honestly things you could investigate {{item:3100}} - make this Item independent from Rabbadons. Having this item rely on raw AP for scaling pretty much makes it from an fighter sustained damage item to a burst item and introduces TONS of problems like turret damage inflation and Deathcap feeling optimally mandatory. If possible maybe find a way to give melee AP champions higher than average base damage and making LichBane passive do like "250% of bAD + X% of targets current HP" rather than being connecting to AP. {{item:3124}} feeling kinda mandatory alongside {{item:3115}} but pretty worthless by itself compared to {{item:3115}} . the overall DESIGN of ap fighters to not be so "up front" about their damage. Currently AP "fighters" are much closer to AP "Slayers" where they deal immense damage and are mostly glass cannon relying on a single defensive ability to keep them kicking. AP bruiser is a myth because Rabbadons dictating your build path realistically. The only true AP fighter that doesnt rely on up-front burst seems to be Rumble {{champion:60}} {{champion:131}} {{champion:38}} {{champion:105}} {{champion:82}} <-- kinda just kills you instantly if they get in your face. No sort of actual dragged out "fighting" just lotsa burst. {{item:3089}} also in the long term I dont think Rabbadons current "force multiplier" effect is good for the game especially considering Raw AP is the one of the few way mages can kinda increase their DPS. It simply feels like Rabbadons is both not important enough to ALWAYS get but at the same time so impactful that everyone gets balanced around its existence (like {{champion:28}} passive for instance). The item does not even offer any new type of strategic paths or gameplay options. Its simply a damage boost and quite literally nothing more. At the very least you could change the passive to be akin to {{item:3005}} giving ramping AP overtime in combat. That would do a lot for game health and actually carving out a specific class for the item as opposed to the item being good on literally anyone who gets AP.
AP items being centered around mana and not health, most AP niche items are wildly too expensive, and like you mention, most AP items require multiple AP items to be effective. It's just the worst of all circumstances.
DaCurtis (OCE)
: Riot your recent balance changes will make people lose interest in Worlds.
Casual and pro really couldn't be more different. Almost all the pub stomping champions are unanimously no good in pro play, for exclusively one reason: DRAFT. People in solo q enter games, typically, with one idea in mind, and that is to play the champion they want to. Junglers play assassins, top laners play carries, and nobody bothers to patch the massive gaps it leaves in their team comps. There's only so many Galio games I can play before I lose my mind.
: they need to nerf his ridiculous lane sustain with the regen passive, do that and he will be quite balanced.
They did this with Tahm Kench and he's been much more manageable since. Agreeeed.

From what I can piece together: Interviews / "hit piece" journalism released of institutionalized sexism and bizarre culture at Riot (from top to bottom) Actual people affected by it report things These actions are against ToS = making homophobic or sexist comments can get you banned, why not fired? As a result, Riot posted about how they're going to try super hard to be inclusive, introducing a new panel at a convention that's very exclusive (that is to say, no men allowed for the first three hours - where they would be accepting resume's and shit from people who are not men) DZK went off on reddit and twitter about how everybody is trash, toxic, and childish for reacting to this turn of events - many rioters backed his OUTLANDISH comments on twitter, despite the fact that a large majority of the people who play this game are the target of his broadly derisive comments (men) The sea lion thing comes from a comic (http://wondermark.com/1k62) wherein an obnoxious sea lion character is attempting to goad other people into an argument - one that they don't even want to have - when the first person says they don't like sea lions, the sea lion then continues to follow them around bothering them from dusk till dawn so-called politely querying and wanting to have a polite discourse regarding why he doesn't like sea lions, but in reality is just being a rabble rouser - thus proving, yes, sea lions really are a pain in the ass. DZK was claiming that anybody who took a position of difference on this issue was just trolling, not actually a legitimate concerned citizen, regardless of who they were. > [{quoted}](name=MetaCosmos,realm=NA,application-id=yrc23zHg,discussion-id=196NZiwh,comment-id=0000,timestamp=2018-09-03T05:33:38.250+0000) > > Someone told men they can&#x27;t just do whatever they wanted so they&#x27;ve all shit their pants pretending it&#x27;s unfair. that's also not far from the truth either, though

People would make fun of me doing trinity force Sion mid. Coincidentally, it's the same reason I reached honor 5 in like two weeks.

I would use Phage proc (60 ms on killing a target) with Approach Velocity rune and with the slow from my E, I would go from moving like 320 towards a person who moves 320 to moving 410 towards a person who moves 250. They can't escape the Q, literally at all, it's not physically possible. With Tri force into Warmogs, I have hit super fed games of 3k hp at like 18 minutes. We've seen a few damage nerfs to Q and E, but the W hp scaling buff was nice.
