: Message to all Lee Sin players... (or any other early game champion)
Actually, in high elo, you might see teams giving the kills to the early jungler so that he (the jungler) can have successful ganks in other lanes early as well. You might not get as much as a laner by not having the kill, but you still get a small lead / not get behind and that's already enough. Also, the jungler job is not only to get kills for the team, but firstly to set up objectives whether it's dragon, rift herald, baron, towers, etc. Stop flaming your jungler for KS. That's ridiculous.
: I don't know about you but this new ranking system S U C K S
I just transferred back my account from OCE to EUW, so my ranked has completely reset. I've been platinum for 4 seasons. Here, I started Bronze 4 starting the placements. I agree with what you said, I saw really high skill players and really bad ones. It's a big lotery. In the end I won 5, lost 5. And when I lose, I always get those "ace" on op.gg meaning that according to them I did the best on my team - meaning yeah, my true MMR seem to be above.... but nevertheless, it's very hard (or, random?) to win consistently in low elo for a platinum player.
: Can Yasuo Get Some Removals like Irelia/Akali?
Ornn got his shield removed too. That was a big deal.
: Guinsoo's RageBlade need to be either removed or Phantom hit to cease to exist.
: The 21st of February is the 10th anniversary of the first 17 champions Riot made. A Then and Now.
Very nice post! I'm surprised it isn't more popular? Maybe because most players on the boards are young or recent LOL players? I started in season 3.
: I like how every comment on here that mentions akali being overnerfed is being gangbanged with down votes from all the salty players who aren't smart enough to win lane against akali, even after they nerfed the shit out of her (before this) Now they've gone and just completely gutted the champion to the point where she's just a complete troll pick now. If they're going to remove the turret invis, they need to revert all the wonky stuff that they changed about her shroud like not going invis as fast, the shimmer, and AAs and such not being canceled. All in all, i understand her shroud being nerfed, but the heal on her Q? Really? Who the hell asked for that? Why are we just making this champion 100% unplayable. You already need a good sum of knowledge of the champion to pull her off, but now even the best of the best are going to struggle to do even decent. This will almost definitely be downvoted to shit by the still salty anti-akali players but that'll just prove my point, so?
+1. And I'm not an Akali player, nor a frustrated against Akali player. OK for the shroud nerf, but why the q heal? Seems like out of nowhere, and that's a big deal! Akali was already weak in lane (she has to be camped and to snowball a bit to become relevant). I think she will become unplayable, at all elo in ranked and in competitive play. I feel bad for Akali players.

: Farming junglers are worthless to play
Yeah I am sad that jungler is the new support. Seriously in competitive and ranked, junglers have the same gold and experience as support. That is, 2 or 3 levels below the adc, mid and top, and 2 or 3 items below. It really feels unsatisfying as a jungler... we used to be like solo laners.

: Account Transfer Service Down
Any update? I was in Australia, Sydney (OCE server) and moved to Belgium (EUW server) so I can't really play due to ping......
: While I understand your sentiment, this is the sentiment of the type of person who believes that the NES is the only worthwhile game system, or who believes that VHS is the pinnacle of home video viewing and that everything else afterwards ruins the experience. Those ideas are severely outdated. Champions are much like this. Their original iterations in the game were built around a certain standard. Let's call that standard Blue. Everyone who was an original 40 champion was built under the Blue standard, in shades like Teal, Navy, Baby, and so forth. However, as the game evolved and people took it different directions and developers innovated certain aspects and designs, other colors got mixed in. The Blue suddenly became Green, and Purple, and eventually the Yellow and Red standards emerged when the Blue was finally discarded from the Green and Purple. Those two standards now have merged to become the Orange standard, and so in this day and age of the game, Blue standard designs and characters cannot be viable when compared to characters of the Orange standard. Blue is now obsolete, and if their designs are not refitted into the Orange standard, there is no way those characters can feasibly operate in the modern game without getting utterly destroyed and overpowered. This is why reworks are necessary, and why it's pointless to get zealously attached to old, aging kit designs to the point where you can't play the game when they finally get replaced. It's like getting overly attached to rusty axel on your car - it's going to have to be replaced eventually, so you're investing your devotion into something with a more than limited life span.
I agree with you, lol^^ I just can't help it =) I can't wait for Shaco rework though................ (I hate playing against his outdated kit)
: It's not a meme: Balance has really tamed my addiction to this game
To me it's more rework. When you're an OTP, and you love a champion, reworks hurt, even if the rework is successful. The game isn't the same anymore after it and you lose the passion. For me it was Warwick. New Warwick is great. But I loved playing pre rework ww. I've played new ww tons, but... it's not the same anymore =(

: Meanwhile Warwick also has 1/3 mobility in his description ya know Rito just gonna forget his crazy W passive and the way that it buffs his ult range? Also he can Q through enemy targets why the fuck does he have 1/3 mobility.
His mobility is only "out of combat" though... (unlike pre rework Warwick) this makes him extremely kitable. On top of this, his damage is very low. Which is why he is useless in high elo =(

: Riot Balance & Design teams have cured my addiction
Agreed. Haven't played in 5 months. But I'm still here checking if things are getting fixed so I can come back to the game. The game used to be about MACRO. Now it's all about MICRO. A game was a whole thing. Team and individual player macro strategy. Now a game is many skirmish... especially very early, then the game drag on a bit but things are decided. You think old league used to be boring because it was too long or damage was too low? Think again. Old league was fascinating and smart, new league is boring and stupid. Maybe it's fun for the 8 year old new player having fun in 1v1 across the map, repeat... But for old, hardcore League fans, it became frustrating and disappointing.

: Riot, is this really who you want representing you?
The problem with this kind of attitude, is that in a world where equality is true - what we are aiming for -, it only cause problems. So, it can never be a sustainable solution. It actually happen all the time in small groups. Imagine a group of 10 friends where no one is racist. If one person in there suggest starts to call other racists and start asking for advantages or separations in the group... it breaks the initial equality with the excuse of a good cause... But in that case it is not a good cause since it wasn't an issue to begin with. It just created a problem similar to racism in a group where there was no racism to begin with. At larger scale, in reality, I see that happening all the time and it is really annoying. It makes it feel like actual racism and sexism can never be eradicated. Hey, people. For a world with no racism and no sexism, you need to give equality a chance!!! Of course we have to punish racism/sexist act!!! But stop seeing sexism or racism in every single sentence or action that are not racist/sexist at all, it feels like you want it, it feels like you want to be victims, in a equal world it is a step backward.

: When people complain about a reworked champion ruining what they liked about the champion.
I preferred old ww. Q did a lot more damage (16% max health at rank 6, now it is half, 8%) and felt better imo. W, the AOE AS buff, was so simple and so awesome for objective control and teamfights and jungle clear... E, was PERMANENT MS buff, not "out-of-combat" full of bug... it allowed to continuously re-position during fights which was awesome. R was a blink suppress, yes, but it was a channeled CC (offering counter like Katarina ult is countered), and it meant going melee on top of a champion (also offering counter), allowing to chose a target and avoid body block. Yes, his early pressure was low......... but you could still surprise enemy by early gank with red buff + Q damage, W AS steroid, E MS... and overall, he had a much consistent presence throughout the game. New ww is OP early and too oppressive, and useless boring late game. ........... that is just MY own opinion, as a ww OTP main since s4 (still main new ww, but I preferred the old)

It is... The thing is, over a large amount of game, it's about how you can deal with tilt. Often, my first game of the day I perform great. Sometime we win... but sometime I have a game just like your Zed 11/0/2 loss game. This tilts me, and I will play a second game, where I guess I perform okay but probably less than in the first because I am a bit tilted that I just lost a free win. If I lose that second game... I might start a tilt spree loss streak... Then another I'll win the first, and win the second, third, fourth... starting a win streak. It's crazy how tilt influence long term rank. Honest without tilt I would be diamond (been mid plat since s4). But tilts kills me... without me even noticing. Because of these coinflip games that have much more impact than a 1 time unlucky loss. So statistically this work in our advantage? I actually don't think so...
: Thanks for the detailed thoughts! The intent with this nerf is to reduce the power that Yorick players are getting when their opponents don't understand Mist Walkers' behavior. While higher MMR games do tend to be longer, we believe that the importance of the strength of Mist Walkers at early levels in lower MMRs outweighs those levels being a lower proportion of the game on average. The goal with this list isn't to lower his low MMR winrate _without_ effecting his high MMR performance - this will be a nerf; just one that's dis-proportionally impacting low MMR, where his performance is the most out of line. If the result is a Yorick that's crushed in high MMR, it's reasonable that we'd look at buffs that would be more valuable for high MMR, like on E as you suggested. We'd need to be careful around how large we make Mist Walkers or their click-box, but I agree that they can feel needlessly difficult to pinpoint. Thought is that that would be a pretty big nerf overall though, and be fairly minimal toward smoothing out his success across MMRs.
You meant higher MMR games tend to be SHORTER, right?

Take good care of this little guy =) Nice story!
: Non-Standard Item Builds: Yes or No?
I like the idea of your topic!! to begin with, I'll present myself. I'm a Warwick OTP since season 4, platinum since season 4. I played on both EUW and OCE servers. http://oce.op.gg/summoner/userName=tundra+hunter note that I demoted to gold 1 after a loss streak from tilting off the pool party music.......... Anyway, it seems to me that using "standard build" and "standard runes" is a bit of a new thing. It was less like so in previous seasons. Also, it seems to me that there is an "intermediate elo" where players think you have to (around low platinum, and in silver). In gold or high plat / low diamond, players are more open to alternate build. Correct me if you think I am wrong, just an impression I have from experience. As an OTP, I prefer to think a little more about my playstyle, my macro, my runes and my build, rather than braindead copying the google standard, that some player think is "smart" when it is actually a sign of the "easy way", don't think... just copy... Optimum build should adapt to your team, enemy team, and your playstyle (need penetration? need tank shred? need tankiness? playing macro? playing 1v1? playing split-push? playing team-fight?) especially on a champion like Warwick who can build efficiently different things. Warwick can be a good tank, he can be a good tank shredder, he can be a good assassin. He can be a good macro with bloodrazor / BoRK / guinsoo to melt drakes / nashor / towers (also good as tank shredding). He can be a decent tank (good resistance with E and durability with AA heals, Q heals, R heal, and CC on E and R). He can be a decent assassin. I personally adapt my build: If I am low elo (relative to my average elo) that is, gold to me is low, I will build DPS to snowball and carry. If I am high elo (mid plat to me), I will adapt: full tank if my team need a tank OR if my team is behind, I will build bruiser if we need tankiness but also DPS, I will build full DPS if we are ahead. I am now at 55% winrate over 320 games this season, I was 60% not long ago but dropped with loss streak during pool party event with that tilting music. I was 61% over 300 games in season 6 (playing mid plat). I never climbed more because sometime I have to play other roles / champions....... and then I suck and I have lower than 40% winrate ahaha OTP life. Anyway, when I get flamed for my build, it's annoying. Usually the person who starts to flame me is 0/5/0 while I am 3/0/2 with 2 drakes and 1 rift herald secured, but the toxic player NEED to blame someone, and what's easier than blaming the teammate who didn't build standard... And when that happen, we often lose because of the players focusing on typing curses in the chat instead of focusing on playing the game. TDLR: YES for non-standard item build!!! It is a smart adaptive choice IMO =)
