Its okay they will ban the guy the ruined it. Not the one who afk'd of course, cause Riot don't care about that. The guy saying nasty words will cop a swift perma, casuse thats the REAL issue.

Zhugan (NA)
: Why Items Defining Metas is the Worst
The problem is the complexity of the game now. Way back in the good ol' days, items were basic. Mostly stat sticks, but some having bonus effects, like IE crit modifier and Atma's damage bonus. Very simple, it was mostly the champ being augmented by the items they built. Now we have 3 paragraphs per item, and 3 paragraphs per ability, it makes it very easy for dumb shit to get through, like you explained. FrAtMogs was the worst metagolem.

Kazekiba (NA)
: Obscene mana costs, no wave clear that doesn't make him extremely vulnerable. Hard countered by Stopwatch. All of his damage is gated and predictable. no, really look at Fizz's mana costs and tell me they're manageable at all. Maybe the new Seraph's + Lich bane can help with that, but he can't really stack it well because like LeBlanc, he cant wave clear AND get out of jail free at the same time, because theyre on the same, long cool down, 130 mana ability.

I shove him in early because I know that's one of his weaknessess, but as soon as he hits 3-4 he can just hard engage every single time I enter lane. I can't touch his minions because he will just stand between the two waves, and just jump me any time I get close. Stopwatch does nothing, because he will just use it as soon as you do, creating a window of no change.

: Riot: On Duskblade users
I remember when they used to leave stuff on the test server for ages, to actually test things. Now the PBE is purely advertising for new skins.
: what more is needed?...
30 mins 200cs. I mean its good by regular standards, but to get that S/S+ you need to be almost perfect. Also the game outcome comes in to play, so same stats can give different ranking depending on win/lose.

He also built his kit to duel/handle you solo and you died to that, and that's fair.

They'll do it every game even when they aren't even gold. You can be an item ahead, but since he can void your entire kid at will, his PD beats your items. As for farming, his kit has 3 instant sources of damage on less than a 1 sec CD, with no cost on any. Pretty fucking impossible to miss CS.
: The "Shaco" Situation...
They plan on ignoring him until they fix him. 30% critical damage every few attacks is nothing, especially for an assassin. For comparison's sake, Riven gets 50% every time she casts a skill. Especially since a regular 200% crit overrides his passive. As stated above, JitB is useless for damage after level 6, and is only ever used to block a skillshot. Even before level 6, fairly useless since the priority bug that ~~King Rapist~~ Meddler refuses to acknowledge.

Saying to addicts "Here, its wrong to do this but you can have a hit occasionally" Sewing their mouth up won't shit either. You need to treat the behaviour over time, otherwise its just going to repeat. But of course Riot don't care, because the more unreformed players that get banned, the more shekels they make.

I can completely understand that this nerf hit him hard, probably one of the hardest indirect nerfs in history tbh.. but I'm just glad that Lee Sin finally gets a taste of karma, after being the poster boy for 6 seasons of jungle. Now if only they hit J4 in a similar way, the jungle might see some variety.

: Chat Bug - Offline?

Altiverse (EUNE)
: Can we get a correlation between baron taken and win rate?
It's a skewed statistic. The team that kills baron is probably ahead to begin with, so the Baron buff itself didn't really change the game; just made the win faster. So even though in your situation it is the losing team that takes Baron, the statistic itself is skewed.
Elohaven (NA)
: Shaco doesn't need buffs or nerfs or posts arguing about either
The only reason they are nerfing Duskblade but buffing all other users is because they realize that there isn't anything left to nerf on Shaco, but still want to make him unplayable.

I fully agree with you, having a blanket heal reduction is silly. It's either overtuned for people who's heals arent strong, or its undertuned for people whos heals are strong.
: Honest question: Is RIot actually just too lazy to fine tune heals directly instead of using GW?
To be perfectly honest, outside of Soraka, I find all healing abilities balanced. They're usually low impact on an average CD, and only really heal a few hundred hp. The real problem in terms of sustain is Lifesteal. Why cry about Soraka healing for 500 every 3 seconds when ADCs can pull out the same HP/S just by auto attacking?
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: February 23
Wait, so you're buffing champs that don't rely on duskblade but build it, and not buffing the champs that do rely on it? Are you literally insane? That's the exact opposite of what you should be doing you stupid fuck. Champs that are in a shitty state but get carried by duskblade NEED THE BUFFS, the ones who do okay without it only become 100X stronger with it. You've literally lost the plot. It's an item designed for assassins, specifically stealth ones, but you'll compensate 2 marksmen but not shaco? Fucking resign you degenerate %%%%.
: Why were the baron changes let through?
Rioter Comments
: It's mainly due to him being highly gold efficient with Q+Klepto., where he can reach his items a lot faster than average champions does. But in laning phase, he's highly vulnerable being dived on as he depends on his dueling potential with his delayed ranged barrels, of which can be easily negated by killing it first before GP procs it.

Who is going to be better at timing it, the GP who shoots 1000 barrels a day or the odd Riven who sees him 1/10 games. And the triple barrel combo has no time to kill the barrel, it explodes as its placed.

Had I read this a week ago, I'd have agreed with you. Swain rework was pretty healthy. Clear weaknesses and strengths.
: its an ability, so therefore isn't blocked by it, BUT the effect of the ability is to become untargetable, thus clearing the snare. think of it like a zhonyas. at least that's my logic. either way though, to my knowledge, snares only block blinks/dashes/backflips anyway

Winrates aren't relevant on ADCs, because they are always picked. When one ADC wins, another will lose, because they are essential and there is really only 4 to pick from at any given time. If ADC A and ADC B are equally broken and are on both teams, theyll both have a 50% winrate.

Sure AP items suck, but its not the issue. The issue with league is ADCs doing too much, too quickly.
: People say top lane has no agency over games any more?
Nope, game is dictated by botlane 100% ADCs snowball way too hard right now.
: I would gladly trade the +%AP buff (PBE) on Rabadon's for a lower cost.
Meddler is a botlane main, so ADCs have to be the prize of the game. Don't expect anything nice for mages ever. The whole reason mages exist is so that the enemy tank can't stack flat armor.
