: The gaming industry has become absolutely hilariously disgusting.
What happened to innovative gameplay, introducing new concepts and ideas, breaking g the ground with great stories and lovable and interesing characters ? All gone, since they can make the same if not more mobey just by adding pre order bonuses, immature and cliche non stop action and lootboxes with rng and keep upgrading the graphics of a 20 year old engine. I miss the old days of memorable madterpieces like halo ce, splintercell chaos theory, call of duty 2 and 4, starcraft broodwar, Mgs 2-3, assassins creed 2, tekken 5, medal of honor allied assault , oh man where did time go.
: Dont play under the influence
I usually get high and have fun fooling around in arams. Never play rankeds while intoxicated tho. Ive tried drunken arams too. Drunk + high is even better. Im going to try tripping next. At least after the hallucination bit, once i start coming down.

: if i throw a banana at your balance team
Has anyone ever found themselves chasing an out of position thresh , and he just flays you and runs away because of the flay slow ? Not to mention him hooking you assisting him in running away ??? It's a hook ? He's got hold of you, why is that assisting him in running away from you ? Last time I checked when you runaway from someone last thing you want tot do is grab them.
: by the logic olaf also punishes you for winning trades
No, it's not even remotely close. Me winning a trade vs Irelia by a small margin as any champion means next time we fight, (when our cds are back up) she gets a free stun, just because I won our last trade. Me winning trades against Olaf means he gets a little bit extra attack speed. So what? His stats get a little higher ? That's it. But a stun instead of a slow is a much bigger deal. Not to mention that irelia is one button press away from engaging on you at will. Whereas Olaf can be kited and needs to land a series of skill shots, to force a fight.

Eedat (NA)
: GW needs to be removed. Lifesteal and other self-healers need nerfs to compensate.
I was about to make a post about this, I think you covered most of it, but I got something to add. Basically there is 2 types of sustainability in carries in LoL. Lifesteal ( mostly purchased through items, but not necessarily) and drain tanking ( flat/ %missing HP healing values given in champions' kits. The first one in a systemic thing, and is currently the problem. The problem with it is that it is stupid strong vs low resists targets ( squishies and minions) and weak vs tough armored targets ( tanks/ Juggernauts) That means 100% lifesteal doesn't mean much vs a 600 armor mallphite, where your autos hit him for 87 damage. But it is dumb when your hurricane bolts heal you for all the damage you dealt to those 0 resist minions in lane / skirmish. And by lategame the damage you deal is like 1.1k crits. Draintanks are much healthier because they can be balanced individually, as they don'r rely on items as much to do their thing. They just heal for the value listed in their kits. Period. The thornmail changes not only don't fix the current Bork/ DD/ GA unkillable AD carry problems, but screws over all of the draintanks OP listed. Riot's refusal to make certain items melee only, and to assess Lifesteal on ranged champions hs brough us here, and their solution to the extremely apparent problem is to add a bandaid fix that kinda solves the ADC problem, but screws over everyone else as well. Like why does a Warwick fighting a Garen or a Maokai have to lose half his kit's power because the tank bought a thornmail ??? Not to mention the damage return in thornmail being changed from based on the % of ADC damage dealt to really low flat values, is going to make the item worthless Vs ADCs. Just No. These changes are dumb. If you want to deal with the problem directly revert the Ninja tabi nerf, nerf DD, Bork and GA. Gw should probably only exist on ignite. Not on champion abilities executioner's calling and ESPECIALLY not morellonomicon, If you really want GW on thornmail, buff the shit out of the dmg return and make it into an active. ( return damage from ranged champion for 5s)

: This is annoying
As stupid as this is, Riot has allowed this to happen themselves, where you can ban an ally's declared champion and no shit was given. And yep nothing can be done about it. No justice shall be given in champ select. Players have complained about these things many times. yet here we are.

: "Glasscanon" now means "inmortal champion with hiper carry damage"
While it's true sustain and ad itemisation is overtuned currently, Your example is terrible. Was your entire team immobile mages with easy to dodge skillshots? because only then Yi would 1v5. And even then it's on you for making a team like that. Probably wasnt the case though, which means you can land one, just one hard CC spell on him and he dies.

As far as Q max Nasus goes, I still max W second tbh. E max second is shit vs tanks anyway and sheen + 150 stacks chunks squishies no matter what. I see no point in maxing E second other than to push. And if I'm that hell bent on pushing so early, I may as well max E first.
I agree, But for me it usually is the matchup. For example if im against Riven or Pantheon top, then ill max E 2nd, cuz the atk speed slow doesnt really help vs them. Whereas vs Tryndamere, Trundle, Irelia, Jax, I want that W max ASAP.

We'll look at that again after buffing Coin. Coin being weak doesn't mean Frost Queen's can't also be overpowered. Calling this thread out in particular because I think it's sad to see this sort of attitude on Boards, especially in a somewhat upvoted thread. The feeling any words you write will be deliberately misinterpreted, or warped, is something I've heard a number of Rioters call out over the years as one of the reasons they don't want to post anymore.

: Warwick is the anti-hypercarry
i like playing him against Vayne, because you can stick on her with your Q through her Qs and even condemn. and it's easy to land the ultimate after she comes out of stealth. Plus you are quite durable vs her with ur E.
: Why increase galio's ap ratios when instead yo could've added another small MR ratio or two?
Just make his W dmg reductions only apply to magic damage and last a bit longer. Now he dies to AD champs. He is just too generically good atm.
: Fiora hasn't had many changes in the past few patches,so why is it, that just now
I've been spamming Galio ever since his release and have had great success with him. So why is it now, that everyone is playing him and complaining about him? Welcome to the real world, where people don't realise how broken something might be to abuse it, let alone start complaining about it right off the bat.
: The most recent all AD team I played against was this: {{champion:23}} {{champion:121}} {{champion:157}} {{champion:119}}, and their supp {{champion:412}} I built this: {{champion:84}} {{item:3146}} {{item:3157}} {{item:3047}} {{item:3143}} {{item:3075}} {{item:3115}} and went 17/4/6 Can't say lifesteal/sustain isn't dumb though (I was Akali...), I feel like champions (specifically ADCs) should pay for it in their kit power budget ( you know, like how {{champion:84}} {{champion:103}} {{champion:12}} {{champion:8}} {{champion:266}} {{champion:9}} {{champion:122}} {{champion:39}} {{champion:420}} {{champion:10}} {{champion:57}} {{champion:11}} {{champion:75}} {{champion:25}} {{champion:76}} {{champion:20}} {{champion:107}} {{champion:121}} {{champion:421}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:16}} {{champion:50}} {{champion:23}} {{champion:8}} {{champion:19}} {{champion:5}} {{champion:91}}{{champion:114}}{{champion:69}} all do...) or it should be a bit of a trade-off. Personally I'd prefer it was only mostly usable against minions and not for draintanking enemy champions but I've heard other people with the exact opposite opinion.
I don't think it's as problematic on melee champions. They have to be hitting you in order for it to work, and in order to hit you they need to be in your face. Which allows your team to properly handle them . Now 3 people on top of an ad carry , an the ad carry healing all the damage back is retarded. They are too durable with GA + DD in terms of dmg reduction, and when you kill them they get back up and start healing again. I dunno maybe it's a problem altogether. ( it hasn't really been in the past so much ) I wouldnt mind if they removed it. I , for the time being want to see Death's Dance and GA nerfs. Maybe making lifesteal half as effective on ranged could work too. So, think like adc with bloodthirster and Bork gets 32% lifesteal now, it should be 1/2 that to 16%. it's not like ADCs need lfesteal to properly fucntion. What about all those healing supports out there?

: Games really are ending before 20 in this snowball meta
Is anyone else experiencing this group mid at 10-12 min for a quick fight, whoever wins gets baron and wins the game? I thought it was this gold- plat elo, but apparently it happens all the way up in diamond 1. I think the problem is the towers once again.
: different key setups possible? pls help
I think you might be able to with third party programs. They might not be legal though.
: Why exactly was Maokai reworked just to be replaced by Galio who literally is another generalist?
SImple solution: Make his W damage Reduction last twice as long ( or at least somewhat longer than now), but make it only MAGICAL REDUCTION. BOOM

: Whyyyyyyyyy does Nasus keep trying to move away from Darius and therefore gets hit by max range Darius Q? He would have won this duel so bad if he just stayed completely on top of Darius .... It's Darius that has to kite Nasus to put out max range Q's not the other way around u_u
He was dodging them though ... it was just at the very end, where Darius used W first to slow him and then Q, which he could'nt dodge, and was enough for Darius to turn the fight around.

Rioter Comments
: 1. yorick has his wall he can lock him down with 2. yorick gets the ghouls to jump on darius so the only thing that his them is the inside of his Q 3. depends if yorick uses his ult and can zone darius in and out of a fight with his circle wall thing.
Doesn't have to hit outer edge of Q. Ghouls are extremely squishy, once passive is activated, the inner part of Q will take out all ghouls. Darius then proceeds to annihilate Yorick with ease. The wall after that doesn't do anything. Maiden alone doesn't do much. The ghouls are what make Yorick strong. Not to mention that once again , if Darius hits her with a Q once passive is on. She is basically half dead.
: wtf is this rengar hype suddenly
TFW I've made pages long posts about Rengar's failed rework, and how to revert him, only for them to be Buried by Boards hypocrites, with " New Rengar is better, he is OP, rework was buff".
: Will Nocturne ever get a rework? He's thematically a failure
He recently put in the VGU list confirmed by Meddler, claiming they will focus on making him a proper Assassin in terms of both visuals and game play.
: Thoughts on adding a juggernaut option for grievous wounds?
I mean at this point, Making the Black Cleaver passive into that would be a pretty good idea, considering that the armor shred has made the item problematic for so long.
: I see you like the 2014 match history
how do you check your match history that far back? I'd like to hope you didn't spend like 40 minutes scrolling down or something just for this.
: Does Darius lose any melee matchup?
For all those that keep saying Yorick beats him: -Yorick has no way of dodging Darius' Q -Once Darius procs passive a single Q will take out all of the ghouls -Darius both outdamages and outsustains Yorick in an extended fight. And it's not even close.
: Saw that post showing his friend when he started playing, this was my friend in 2014
YEah I used to build Giants belts on Yi too when i started playing. i thought whoever had the biggest HP bar won :D
: How to fix Fiora
Remove her mana bar completely, (like Riven) Change Vital damage into physical, but increase ratios to compensate. Remove atk speed slow.
: Riot, if you want to stop losing players, it's time to clean house
I've put this in over 3+ Surveys that Riot finds so "useful" and keeps asking me to complete them. CEASE FIRE WITH NEW CHAMPIONS AND FOCUS ON FIXING ALREADY EXISTING PROBLEMATIC CHAMPIONS WHICH WE HAVE PLENTY OF. I'm sorry 4 VGUs a year is not enough. You fix 4 champions (half of which will turn out being problematic within a year) and Release 8 New champions ( most of which will either be ovetuned on release or be straight up broken or even both). You need to rework 10 champions a year and release 4 new. Otherwise the game is just going to be getting worse and worse instead of improving.

Jax can beat him in lane if he uses his E properly for trades, I've seen Wings of Death and Dyrus pull it off consistently. GP has an easy time against him in lane due to his safety, range and kite. Riven also can beat him up pretty hard at lvs 3-9, which is where she spikes hard and can burst him down. After darius gets armor it's over though. Box Box has explained this match up in depth many times. Camille dumpstered him on release, Not sure what happens now though, after all the nerfs.

: If you have not played her I would recommend that you go and do so for a few games to get a feel for her Q range and its move speed, then depending on champion try to keep the required distance to avoid a QE combo so you don't get harassed out. every time she cast Q you should be moving to position to dodge her next cast, means not getting to close to her or the ball. Otherwise your options are bully, burst, mobility. She is a strong champ and I wish you the best of luck.
Suggesting to people to dodge her Q would imply that you can outtrade her, but funny thing is even if she misses it, she still gets the Movespeed from the QW,( which makes it hard to hit her with your own skillshots, or get on top of her) Shields herself, and starts to auto you a couple of times ( which also outtrades you because of her passive and her very smooth basic atks) and then her Q is up again, while your spells are still on cooldown. As you can see, that is just too many tools on the hands of the Orianna player to play with , which removes the opponents agency. Something has to go.

: Can I humbly suggest that we not keep this trend up with tank itemization value.
Riot seems to be very fond of this idea that Tanks should be out scaled by damage dealers in the lategame.
: So, Riot, could Viktor get some buffs already?
We can play league without Viktor being in the meta for once, Especially when there is champions that require more attention than him.

: I have figured out how to win every game
The most ridiculous ones are the ones where you take both their inhibs and then they stick around as the enemy team is about to respawn. Like what are you hoping to accomplish there?? There is nothing more to do ? you are basically asking to die. Just back, wait for your CDs to come up, replenish lost hp and mana, and baron , because it's free. Then push to win.
: Counterplay to a champion should not be "destroy them before X minutes"
Rengar is probably the biggest counter to him ( not that that justifies his absurd power level). He gets to freely navigate around the map and make picks by himself, with his long as stealth. Rengar finds him and bops him with his ulti.
: Riot gives us all free stuff but we don't use it
I always ward, and I was one of those few people that used to upgrade their trinket by level 9 as soon as i reached it. Every player sometimes through the game , asks themselves "hmm what can i do now?" Even if there is nothing else to do , there is always time to ward. Remember that.
: So are fiora nerfs going to actually happen or will it take 3 more seasons?
I don't understand why she has to do true damage ??? Like what was the intention behind this? "Let's make her unitemizable against" She Dumpsters squishies and tanks alike, while she is healing like crazy, dodging everything, being unescapable from and uncatchable. Like what are the champions' intended weaknesses? Can we make her weak vs tanks and juggernauts please, like she was before her rework? why does a slim and agile but arguably weaker in terms of strength fencer penetrate tough champions like Malphite, Trundle, Darius and Garen with her little sword?? it doesn't make sense... Just change all her damage into physical, so that you can pick some champions against her and feel good about it. Or at least build some armor to survive...

The general opinion here seems to be that League has a healthy and continuous influx of new players, BUT Riot struggles to keep them playing. Maybe people keep saying that the game is dying because they know a llot of people who don't play it anymore. ( like me) Little do they know ( including me) that these players have been replaced by new players that just got into the game and are loving it. In fact the amount of players getting into the game every day feels a lot greater than the amount of players leaving it.
