: The jump is considered as dash and displacement effects interrupts a dash, that's why e.g. Thresh Flay can interrupt so many "jumps".
The Tristana buffered her W so that she took the CC while the spell was casting and the movement of the jump then overrode the airborne effect. It works the same way as when people QSS/Cleanse a knockup the Flash out of the air. A knockup/knockback has two components - a stun and the airborne effect. The airborne effect can be overwritten by movement abilities, while the stun prevents champions from using said movement abilities. By cleansing the CC and flashing or buffering a Trist W/Ezreal E you can effectively ignore the stun and override the airborne effect.

: The funny thing about Australia
The adult Australian magpie is a fairly robust bird ranging from 37 to 43 cm (~14.6-17") with a wingspan of 65-85cm (~25.6-33.5"). They are birds of prey. They are not like Eagles who tend to live in open areas - they live in urban areas and there are fuckloads of them. They are infamous for becoming extremely aggressive during breeding season and swooping humans. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/f8/ac/28/f8ac28e773aa38cdcf4809a079207b07--australian-birds-australian-magpie.jpg
: "CDR is too broadly found"- Meddler
I like that champions are balanced around having 30-45% CDR now. It's another power-spike champions need to build up to. Having more thresholds on top of tankiness/crit/AP/AD for championsd to reach actually makes the game MORE stable.

: I think they learned their lesson, last year felt very Halloween like with the re imagined Doombots, Bewitching Morg and Trist and of course Devil Teemo, all in October like it should be. Though assuming Riot is going to keep up the whole "different theme every year" thing, we'd have to hope that they do a Harrowing event this year, or at the very least, Something very close to last year.

: Future of SKT Huni, discussion
This is a pretty stupid thread. Huni is still probably one of the Top 5 Top Laners in the world. He just needs a favourable meta. Untara will be SKT's go-to Top Lane until this happens because he can play low-income Top Lane Tanks reliably. There's nothing wrong with having dedicated subs for specific champion pools.
Necrozard (EUW)
: ALERT : A new kind of bot released in Coop vs AI
I can't speak for everyone but once I hit Level 30 I either played PvP or CUSTOM GAMES with Bots (Easy Bots on my team vs. Intermediate on Enemy Team). If I can beat 5 Intermediate Bots with ACTUAL BOTS on my team that have the bare minimum coding to not AFK in base while simultaneously doing nothing of value, I'm sure a couple of players + bots can do the same.
: That happens only from time to time. In normal URF you are pretty much guaranteed to have Zed's, WK's, Shaco's, Hec's and Sona's all over again, and you are pretty much guaranteed to get bored by this. There is a reason why by far the most successfull side-mode until now is an all random mode too. In a chill mode, it is perfectly OK to get completely fucked by RNG once in a blue moon, but boredoom is unacceptable.

I feel like Raka should be buried in a bit of unplayability. Fuck that champion and fuck Janna.

: Banned for playing Ascension differently?
The 'bans' were only 14-day suspensions which were lifted because Riot couldn't actually point to a rule that they could have broken. Ultimately, I don't think Ascension will return until Riot comes up with a solution. Perhaps Riot could let players recall? Perhaps Riot should bring back Dominion for a fortnight? Up to them.

{{champion:106}} {{champion:34}} are likely candidates for a Lore Update given the Ornn short-stories. Other than that only {{champion:20}} really needs any changes (tie him to a faction or indicate what the allegiances of the Yeti are).

No. Janna has just always been an abomination that literally just requires a player to have functioning hands to be able to play.

: Gnar won't let you get close. One jump away, and Kayn is stuck walking at you with his MS, while Gnar is throwing boomerangs and kiting.
No. It's actually not the best matchup for Gnar - especially after he upgrades to Darkin form. He can really punish Gnar when he comes out of Mega Gnar and he can potentially dodge your R and generally just out-sustain/out-duel you.

Someone needs to put him on an Academy (Reserve Grade) team next yeah until he reforms.
Dr Mercy (NA)
: Except the entire system is a reward system designed to encourage early aggro, with variation per comp. If you're doing well against the Melee champs, or they have a lot of them, you're rewarded by making good plays by getting your form earlier. Same goes for ranged. If you're getting most your ganks on Melees, and you need range form, ya got to wait a little, but if you're doing that well against Melee's, why not do even better? Not to mention, the system is designed to actually get you your Transformation faster. If it was designed as you suggested, you'd need way more essence to transform, since there is no requirement for a specific transformation.
Gnar counts as Ranged for most of the laning phase, but you really don't want to build Shadow Kayn into him. In what way is that rewarding?? By default you're delayed by 3 minutes. The only time you should be going Shadow Assassin Kayn is when you're playing him Mid (and very situationally Jungle).

Dr Mercy (NA)
: So remove Kayn entirely, sick.
That's not what he meant. He's simply saying that there should just be one type of essence instead of the red for melee blue for ranged so that one way or another when you get enough essence to transform, you can transform to whichever Kayn you want.
: Why does Brand do so much more damage than veigar?
This is probably the most subjective question I've ever seen. Depending on the build and the amount of stacks Veigar could do half or 3x of the amount that Brand deals at any given time in the game.

Renekton has early burst to probably kill Gnar early. If not, Renekton will probably buy a Ninja Tabi and Black Cleaver anyway to counter the damage and the armor Gnar will probably be building. Also if the Renekton is good enough he can predict Gnar ult and try to dash out. Gnar shouldn't be getting armor early aside from Tabi. He builds BC and often a Mallet before going tank.
{{champion:150}} really only needs {{item:3071}}. From there he can go into {{item:3075}} or {{item:3065}} for Tankiness, {{item:3812}} for duelling, or {{item:3022}} for kiting power. I personally put a fairly low priority on {{item:3022}} .
: Renekton's Weakness?
I generally pick {{champion:150}} into him.
: Alternatively, stop taking game modes and adding "All Random" to it and acting as if it's innovative. What's next, AR-Ascension? There's already Aram for the dice rolling on whether you win or lose, it's not necessary elsewhere especially since it's not like they're really balancing these out.
Riot adds 'All Random' so that they don't have to deal with problem champions. They figure that us only having to encounter a specific champion occasionally is a lot better than him being pick/ban in regular URF. The reality of the situation is that about 1/3rd of the champion pool is shit in URF, 1/3rd is decent, and 1/3rd is broken. Objectively, that's fine. In reality, however, is that most of the time one team gets lucky with their re-rolls and the other team gets shafted. Out of the 20 or so games of URF that I've played, maybe 4 have been close games.

The LCS has come a long way. Back in the day a lot of players were overweight/lacked muscle tone (i.e. were generally not eating well or exercising). Since then, organisations have developed fitness regimes and make sure that players eat well. There is even a recent article on LoL Esports that delves into the eating habits of players.

Rioter Comments
: Why is AR urf still a thing?
Riot needs All-Random game modes to work off random sets of champions, not random _individual_ champions. That way each possible comp has a total 'power budget'. Say each team has a budget of 1000: > Example > Team 1: > Champ A - 300 > Champ B - 200 > Champ C - 150 > Champ D - 150 > Champ E - 200 > > Total Power: 1000 > > Team 2: > Champ A - 300 > Champ B - 300 > Champ C - 100 > Champ D - 100 > Champ E - 200 > > Total Power: 1000 This would make ARAM and ARURF far more competitive instead of one-sided shit shows.
: Got Honour 4 :D
A lot of people are reaching the Honor 4 threshold at the moment. I wonder how much longer until people start hitting Honor 5. My guess is a month at the very most.
Salson (EUNE)
: Well Rito 'tried' to make him better, but they did no adress the elephant in the room. Why does he still have a point and click suppression. They removed it from {{champion:19}} because it was unhealthy and took too much of his power budget.
They actually removed it because it was a point-and-click blink/suppression/on-hit applicator. The big different between Malz and WW is that Malz is a squishy, low-mobility kite/control mage who has to simultaneously root himself to use his Suppress. I'm actually quite content with Malzahar - he was one of Riot's first attempts at a kite/control mage and he has his niche in the meta.
SiffLort (EUNE)
: Pardon? What depth do actually 'kill 600 minions' or 'win 4 games with 100 minions kill' add?
For newer players at adds depth. A lot of newer/lower rank players don't actually place a high priority on cs.

SoloQ has never been purely solo (ironically enough). I just think having a Trio and a Duo would be better than the other possible combinations. But at the same time, that would make Flex pretty redundant.
