Depends on if its normal or ranked, but also if they were smth tryhard or not. If it's a zed or yas etc afk ill 100% kill them but anything else I'll leave them.

Okay but variants dont count towards the skin pipeline. Basically was a more indepth chroma to test and Soraka was one of the few that suited the test more. I'm still more salty that Yi got three skins in 2 years, or jhin getting project, blood moon, and SKT in the same year (tho skt doesnt rlllly count but still).

Yeah ill wait until I have all my mpen items, zhonyas, and mana item to start with before i can properly try to kill him with hexdrinker and mercs :/ And some people play blind pick, karen, im just 100% gonna take exhaust as a midlaner all the time cuz its the most effective way to counter one champ ?
: Delete One: Champion, Item, and Rune
{{champion:238}} Feels like no matter how well you lane against him, he'll always snowball, and if you do well enough hell just get merc and hexdrinker just to make sure you cant kill him. Plus his shadow procing electro, his ult giving him free AD, and just standing there waiting to die despite him missing all his Qs cuz of duskblade ult electro. It's horrible. Also his free csing cuz his passive procs on minions, and good waveclear despite meaning to be a weakness of assassins. {{item:3155}} It's so painful how strong this is. Become unkillable most of the time to an AP opponent for 1300g, while seekers only offers armor and ap after you stack it with farming. Dont even need to upgrade sometimes, that and mercs is a horrible combo. Aftershock for runes, only because it makes a few ranged champs good using it and without it theyre not the best. Can't get buffed cuz of the rune that makes them really good (Liss for example, rly good with aftershock but she doesnt do much dmg and cant have dmg buffed cuz of it, i like electro more). At least give it half effectiveness on ranged...

That rework LB waveclear was so nice to hear, I actually miss her rework.

Her ult suits a grand dualist theme, successfully 1v1ing offers a large aoe healing for her and her team.

(plus its nice to have a throw away move for stacking your stun)

: What champs are special to u?
{{champion:142}} Came out after I dropped out of uni and was feeling horrible, really helped me get excited for something. She's exactly the sorta thing i wanted in league (super cute, can be really creative, hi range burst mage). And I got my results of getting into nursing uni with her figure release, it felt amazing.. {{champion:44}} Post rework, but my friends used him to bait me into playing the game with how s*xy his new design is. {{champion:99}} First main, also like above, SG skin was used to convince me to play too. {{champion:40}} I made a lot of friends in her mains discord :D
Zerenza (NA)
: As an assassin main, most assassins are viable. Evelynn, Diana, Katarina, Zed, Kha'Zix, Pyke and Nocturn are all perfectly viable. For Kat and Zed they take a bit more skill but for all of these champions, put a bit of time into them and your looking at a 50-55% win rate scaling up with champion experience. Non viable assassins are as follows. Fizz, Ekko, Akali, Kayn(blue form is often not preffered) and Rengar and with all of them your skill can make up for a lot of their win rates. The thing I find the most interesting is that 55% of the assassin class is AP but people only complain about the AD ones.
Probably because the burst that comes from duskblade and electrocute while missing a lot of abilities is way more noticable than smth an AP assassin does (which still is oneshotting but at least seems like theres a little more counterplay).
: usable? lux has the second most skins in the game lmaoooooo
Theres a lot of champs with more skins than Lux, and only four really hold up to todays standards (SG, Pajama Guardian, Lunar, Elementalist). And she's a main character in league lore (moreso than Ezreal). List of champs with 1 or more skins than Lux: {{champion:17}} {{champion:19}} {{champion:13}} {{champion:96}} {{champion:24}} {{champion:55}} {{champion:53}} {{champion:84}} {{champion:22}} {{champion:58}} {{champion:79}} {{champion:36}} {{champion:4}} {{champion:1}} {{champion:15}} {{champion:12}} Champs who also have ultimates/the most skins in the game: {{champion:81}} {{champion:21}}
: Who do you think is the best designed champion and why ¿
{{champion:142}} Her short story wasnt the best (I loved the story where she became aspect of twilight tho), but a child given godly powers who loves cute things etc. Her visuals, walk cycles, animations, voice are all just amazing, and while they seem kinda out of place in the world of league, she was a refreshing sight. And her gameplay, while being a bit unfun to go against, it really does make a game feel like her playground, running around to burst someone, or getting creative with summoners, angles, and using walls. I just love creativity. She also was shown in a bad time in my life so having something that catered so well to what I've always wanted in this game was such an amazing feeling, I love her so much.
: In terms of an art revamp, out of all the ADCs I'd say Caitlyn or Ashe need it the most. I would include Corki but I still don't know if he qualifies as an ADC or a midlaner tbh.
Give Cait a half decent outfit and I'll be happy.
: Nid being able to lane again would be cool too.
Riot said they were working on that last year and they never touched it again.. Feels bad, I want that too. Love the champ, hate the jungle.
: Who's on your list for an Ezreal tier revamp?
I want {{champion:99}} to get new models/animations since she only has like 4 useable skins, but top of my list is {{champion:1}} . She was the first champion VU and could use another one, with her lore update etc., and updates to her kit (maybe just her shield). Plus she has 1820 skin thats worse than a 975 skin.

Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: January 9
Hi, with the Neeko changes on PBE (I honestly really cant call it buffs, more like flat changes), I don't agree with removing her slow on her ult. The CD nerf is fine, imo its really low, but that slow helps a lot when people get near, they can already flash and be mobile away and helps with the stun. Just already sucks to hit sometimes and this makes it worse. Completely fine with how she is and I'll accept a buff, but not at this sorta cost, it's too needed. Buffing her W utility will feel better in the long run instead.

Assassins punish uncoordinated teams and thats masters, only one tricks would play him up there.
: The problem with this is none of this is the actual real problem. The REAL problem is Riot has been steadily nerfing defensive options for carry classes, making them do more damage in the process. All defensive purchases for carry roles are generally shit, and the ones that are good, are damage items with defensive side effects on top of offensive stats. and sometimes have offensive abilities as well. We need to go back to GA not having damage on it, Banshee's being a tank item, Abyssal Scepter needs to come back, etc etc. THIS was when damage wasn't so crazy.
Abyssal Scepter was toxic AP vs AP that cant use it, a Leblanc or Fizz jumping on you with it doing more damage WHILE having more MR was unfair and it made sense to make it a tank item. Banshee's was better as a tank item too imo.

DeltaDan (EUW)
: Can Annie have a Visual and voice update to fit her new lore?
She needs Ezreal VGU, she could use some kit alterations as well, like maybe to her E mainly. New model/effects to fix her outdated skins, effects, and she used to be one of the cuter poster champs for League but now shes forgotten.
: The thing is, Kass and Leblanc are **AP** assassins (though Leblanc is also kinda a mage too). Pretty much, you'll notice there's no effect or representation of AD assassins or really anything people are complaining about with mages being "weak". In fact, there is literally nothing to support the idea that mages aren't viable mid lane nor the idea that assassins are pushing them out.
Ok, lets take that leagueofgraphs thing you put first. Yasuo is number 1. there, AD champ, makes almost any skillshot champ suffer endlessly (or any projectile person). What sort of champions tend to have most skillshots? Mages. What sort of champion are being pushed to support instead of mid? Mages. Also can you itemise against his armor pen/true damage/dmg reduction from phantom dancer as a mage? haha Now Galio is 2. and I've explained him, 3. is Zed. Zed is a bundle of fun for an immobile mage. Super safe laning phase and easy csing under tower, amazing all in, and level 6 will make any non-point and click CCer suffer until they delay their build with seekers, and he just roams and kills the rest of the team. What sort of champion does he excel against? Immobile mages without point and click (or AoE) lockdown (also gets bonus AD from your ADC who died to him because you cant outroam him). Can he get hexdrinker and mercs on top without much punishment to make opposing mage useless against him? Yes. Will seekers protect you from him? Not as much as you'd think. 5 is Irelia and I'm not even gonna bother using the same tone I've been using. She just yeets herself across a minion wave, uses Conq and her passive dmg to all in you level 3 unless you have mobility to escape or dodge, or CC that she'll just dash back to a minion against and go back in soon enough. Simple enough. Now in the top 15, 8 are assassins or bruisers (I'm counting Ahri/LB here cuz both have mobility and CC, so can be considered both assassin and burst mage). Bruisers need a mention too since they're the same as an assassin but tankier and slightly less burst dmg. Now what we have left is Galio (buffed stupidly), Liss (counters most of the mobility, uses aftershock too), Zoe (just slippery), Cass (abusing comet), Ori (brings supportive aspects to help team), and Vlad (is Vlad). And so any other choices mid struggle to hold up against the assassins and bruisers, and moved bot because they still are able to provide high damage, it's just easier to do so down there. I hope this makes sense, and I realise I was wasting my time talking about a game rather than being productive and I'm sorry about that.
: https://www.leagueofgraphs.com/champions/overview/middle/diamond https://lolalytics.com/ranked/worldwide/diamond/plus/tierlist/Middle/ https://www.op.gg/champion/statistics He's some stat sites that support that argument. Top 10 mid laners, a majority of them are mages.
Galio was buffed stupidly (which ironically happened last preseason too), Lissandra counters mobility (same with Malzahar) and uses aftershock for tankiness, Ahri has safety, Cass is using a unique interaction with comet and a new build, Zoe is Zoe. Kassadin and LB are assassins but go off if you wanna call them mages.

Assassin / Fighter has to go Hexdrinker? build delayed. Mage builds Oblivion Orb? Np it builds into Morellonomicon.
Yea because Oblivion orb is the safety option out of those three. They get seekers first and are gated by mana and stacking it to get its full effects. I dont know why ur tryna compare QSS and hexdrinker to obliv orb.
: its impossible to tank magic damage anymore. MR tank items are fucking garbage
At least AP champs dont have the absurd amount of true damage that AD champs have, let alone sources of armor shredding all while having normal armor pen items and 35% on Lord Dominik's (less than void staff but auto attacks and abilities vs jst abilities with AP).
: Tanks and bruisers very much like that spell shield which can help stop the coutners to their engage rather than having their engage negated by some one 600 range away and having more defense out of the items than you had as a melee and getting a large amout damage too.
Yea that does make sense. And to be fair it's not tanks having banshees that I have an issue with, it was stuff like Fizz and LB building abyssal to both do damage more and nullify their AP opponent's damage well. That sort of item suited a tank that does AP damage, or on an AP heavy team.

: Even Malph gets blown up if he goes full armor. But, by going AP he gets to actually contribute to fights. It sucks, but that is actually the current meta.
most powerful cc is death after all

: Notice how currently the best mids in the game on op.gg are all mages, the only good assassin is talon because he can push and roam
Kass and Ahri are assassins, or assassin secondary, Galio was just stupidly buffed because Riot didnt learn from last preseason when they buffed his AP scalings. Cass is just abusing comet and Lissandra counters mobility. Below that though are the said stuff that Liss counters, Yasuo, Zed, Talon, Pyke, and Malzahar is there for similar reason to Liss. Assassins pushed immobile mages out of there. Brand and Zyra are too good with a lot of champions around and don't need much gold, but Lux, Veigar, Xerath, Velkoz etc struggle a lot against mobile champs and have enough to function as a sup. I hope this analysis makes sense.
: ADC's whined for years that they wanted an AD variant to Zhonya's; so, Riot granted them their wish by making GA into what it is today. Not sure why they changed Banshee's. Oh, that's right, because they hate defense.
Abyssal Mask and Banshee's passives did make more sense swapped to be fair. A tank wouldn't need to have a spell shield, and AP champs that could get in range made abyssal super strong.
: Wait, what did Nintendo do? I heard about the controversies with the other four companies (and EA), but I didn't hear anything about Nintendo.

Just the online thing, you know, the thing Playstation and Xbox has but an actually affordable version of it
: If you could delete one champion from the game, who would it be?
{{champion:238}} For being a chore to go against as an immobile mage. I'll do fine but it's really not the effort. Or {{champion:90}} only because his sound effects actually hurt my ears and I need to mute sounds to play against him (especially battle boss).
: {{champion:142}} Like really. We had to rework half of {{champion:76}} damage because it was toxic? I'd argue {{champion:142}} is even worse to play against.

We had to rework half of {{champion:76}} damage because it was toxic? I'd argue {{champion:142}} is even worse to play against. Did you happen to forget the rest of old Nidalee's kit or something? Cuz just her spear was the issue alone huh
: So, a push-and-roam champion rushing a waveclear item should be able to be matched in waveclear?
I mean Tayliah was reworked cuz of that, and yet talon can rush an item thats just as effective and doesnt cost any mana to use.
: I have no clue who you're talking about. My champion: Picks up a stick but ends up becoming a twink boy toy for a centuries old cryophilic. EDIT: It's Trundle.

I'm only gonna say Ezreal cuz hes the only twink in the game but it cant be him
: Poor thing needs to be desperately looked at, a champion with such a simple kit shouldn't be sitting at 47% winrate for about good 6 months now.
They're reverting forbidden idol item's %, but I feel like enchanters should just have a bit more base armor/MR to help them botlane at the moment. So much dmg down there that she'll get bursted jst going for spellthief procs.
: talon, renekton, and fiora? i dont even think its the champs even though they are stupidly strong rn, tiamat is just busted lol.
Talon is obnoxious mid with it, hard to match his push earlier on and he'll roam and come back.
