: Thought: Doinb is like Nukeduck...but better...
I mean that narrative about him is kind of false. Nautilus is really the only offmeta solo lane champ he plays regularly he barely ever plays Kled or Poppy mid anymore.
: This finals was an amalgamation of everything that's wrong with season 9.
Yeah that roaming Nautilus mid ruining everyones games. All of the discussions surrounding this game are fairly unimportant because the real issue is that a jungle exists in the first place. It was fine when almost no one could kill the monsters early on but ever since Riot started forcing the game out of double roaming supportive characters with jungle and summoner spell changes SR has been trash. Removing jungle aside from large monsters, making duo lane gold shared, and getting rid of all of the items created to supplement the existence of flawed systems for support and jungle is how you make the game fun to play again. Rito doesn't care about fun to play though they want those 1v3 ganks for their tv show. They don't care that the complete inability to have real coordination in regular matches makes this game design a horrible experience. It is why teleport is the only macro play summoner spell left because people use it for big counter gank plays for the tv show.
: Why is everyone claiming this years esports is rigged?
RNG is Uzi with a bunch of boulders strapped to his back.
: Doubt I'm going to bother following worlds after this shit.
It seems you don't understand how lane priority works. He couldn't gank because Doinb had his lane permashoved and was always roaming towards another lane to apply pressure and prevent it with Tian often sitting on lanes instead of backing to do the same. Jungling is a team effort at the pro level and FPX drafted for an advantage in the mid/jungle matchup so that they had map control and shit like Yasuo bot just flat out doesn't work without map control.
: I am very disappointed and feeling like I was betrayed at the finals
The hell have you been watching? G2 is not a smart team they take terrible fights constantly and win through mechanical outplay and being able to ban out tiny draft pools of their opponents. Oh and by not having to play teams from China.
Galiö (NA)
: I feel like certain picks were slept on these worlds.
You have to be good at those characters which is why they didn't get played much. There was a lot of room for different compositions this year but most of these teams are basically comprised of young one tricks who can play like 2 other characters barely at an acceptable level for worlds. FPX targeted Jankos with this and used G2's reluctance to ban out Tian's picks because their character pools overlap to gain an advantage by just picking Tian's character early. FPX won every draft by focusing on jungle mid pressure spreading to the rest of the map. G2 lost every draft by trying to show off and look clever.

He is really feast or famine both teams feast with Blabber. That isn't even the problem. Sneaky just isn't as good as the top adcs in the world and can't ever be counted on to carry and they are running multiple characters they have no mastery over in attempts to cheese strat wins. It is honestly pathetic to watch I knew they weren't close to being a contender but this shit is sad. At least Faker and Uzi are giving us something worth watching I don't really care for G2's soft inting screwing around early style which allowed Fnatic to take several games off of them in summer and will probably cost them worlds.
Comentários de Rioters
: Patch 9.20 notes
Giving Viktor some love by turning him into an awful pile of trash. A mid range mage with no hard cc, no 100 to 0 burst ult, and no disengage tool from real danger now can't itemize defensively because he no longer scales from it. Trading around 90% of the value he was getting from shields since you could easily get to 4k mana and shields act as health and apply your magic resist and armor and the ability to actually fight people for losing upfront burst on his ult and a 20% slow. Viktor is a midlaner now! You can surely play paperbagnoescape the champion into Qiyana, Akali, Cass, Syndra, etc. Gragas and Kha won't be able to 100 to 0 you under tower in less than a second any time they feel like it at all now surely. YOU HAVE A 20% SLOW HOW COULD THEY EVER REACH YOU!!!! NO ONE IN THIS GAME JUST WARPS ALL OVER THE FUCKING PLACE INSTANTLY DEALING A BILLION DAMAGE NOT HALF THE FUCKING CHARACTERS OR ANYTHING NO NOT AT ALL!!
Quáx (NA)
: Worlds group stages are in
Splyce is bad they could easily lose in groups. TL is probably the best team in their group. IG isn't last years IG they have been looking a little shaky and Damwon is really flawed even though they are very talented and should make a run at advancing.
xZmooh (EUNE)
: Who will win the worlds
Losing when you are very clearly not one of the best teams isn't choking. RNG and Griffin are the closest thing to underdogs that have any kind of a chance at winning this year. FPP, SKT, and G2 will likely brutally kick the heads in of every team not among those 5.
: Hot take: Triumph is one of the biggest factors to the snowballing problem in League
Hardly any characters can actually properly abuse klepto and on some of the ones that can it isn't necessarily the best choice; that is like claiming SoS is destroying the game because it is crazy busted on about 3 champs. What OP is talking about has widespread impact on the game. Lethal tempo, hail of blades, phase rush, and grasp all have really abusive interactions on a handful of characters just like klepto. Aftershock is actually really problematic because they are balancing champions based on its existence in the game. Characters that are supposed to be tanky but can't proc it have to be changed because of it and characters that rely on it to be viable end up getting nerfs which won't be reverted when they change the keystone because that is how riot operates.
Salron88 (EUW)
: does heimerdinger have any weakneses that melee champs can abuse toplane?
Delusional people trying to pretend Heimer needed those buffs and that he isn't broken. This is Quinn and Cass being the best in every lane states of busted. The answer is you don't get to play the game because Rito wanted to overbuff a champion for worlds. I don't see how this is the breaking point though there is basically always some busted mage, adc, or tank ruining toplane.
: I hope TFT fails
The gamble eggs are awful but the length of the game mode is fine they just need to shift some of the time from early rounds into later ones since you actually have things to do then and a couple extra seconds matters. How long are SR games now like 7 minutes? SR used to go at least 45 most games.

Sorry but losing is never a valid strategy for winning. That is a gibberish argument created to defend awful systems that can't be defended without logical fallacies like I'm losing to win. Losing to be awarded an unfair advantage over your competitor for no reason does not make sense. Defend the exchange with any kind of rational argument; you can't. You are right the catch up mechanics are there for a reason. Not the one you described of course but they are there for a reason. The same reason BR games don't start you with a weapon. So bad players can gain unfair advantages over other players through no effort or ability and get their feel good. I mean come on Riot has gamble eggs to sell. If you are forcing a build and can't complete it that is a you problem or bad luck. If too much damage is overall being done in early mid game then that is a unit cost problem and/or an item damage problem that is causing imbalance. The fact that people have to lose and everyone can't complete their comp isn't a valid argument for catchup mechanics. Problems existing within the game outside of those catchup mechanics that they are masking somewhat aren't reasons to keep them either. Quite the opposite. They are reasons to get rid of them and fix the actual issues with the games core design and balance.
: FIX ITEM RNG ALREADY
You are losing because you are playing the game wrong. Probably using the early gold to level even though that makes zero sense. Full gold in creep rounds is the most free top 4 start you can get in this terrible meta.

: Crit Item Explorations
How is that a defensive PD? That is worse than the current PD as a defensive item. It is pretty much a 90 second cooldown and max mitigation cap being added to what it was giving you. The 5k version of IE wouldn't fix anything with how you are forcing games to be shorter. It puts crit ADCs at around 12k+ gold needed for 3 items and that 100% crit which is what really matters for them.
: 7 out of my 20 latest NB games are a complete stomps. And there is more to it...
What champions you have does matter there are busted and terrible champs in the mode. It is mostly about which team has people who know how the game mode works though. When the junglers don't know how the xp and gold sharing or pathing works or when the laners don't match numbers and roam after pushing waves in or help junglers secure buffs. When people play way too passively and don't all in to secure kills on the on fire enemies. After the balance changes they made steamrolling mostly happens because of level and gold difference created by those scenarios. Where your team is playing the mode incorrectly and gets down a level or two and doesn't do everything they can to kill the one enemy who is on fire and now suddenly there are two or three and the game is just over.

Probably because pet spam is annoying to play against and people generally don't like to have to actually deal with split pushing and just want to clusterfight.
: Cassiopeia shines for one patch and gets nerfed immediately??
Because broken mage ruining top lane again and approaching ruining Mid as well with Cass and Kass both being broken there. Cassioppeia and Irelia are no where close to the same levels of broken. Cass has 10% freaking winrate at mid with double the pickrate and about 7% winrate at top on Irelia. The winrate normally goes down when your pickrate is 10+ even on the champs with overloaded kits. You generally have to have some crazy busted kit and scaling to achieve mid 50s winrate with 10+ pickrate.
Bultz (NA)
: This game has gone from skillful outplaying to cheap mechanics
There isn't only one item that offers tenacity. {{item:2138}} {{item:3111}} {{item:3053}} Tenacity doesn't reduce displacements which is what they keep adding to everyone's kits. You should be able to get down to the cap for all roots/stuns in the game right now with tenacity items and runes which is .5 seconds. It isn't really worth going out of your way for. If your champ has a good build path in the trees you need and benefits from it then it can be useful depending on what champs are on the enemy team.

Nah hopefully they take that bot lane bullshit out of his kit and buff his solo laning power.

Generation Meme what do you expect. You are going to lack depth and logic in the way you communicate with others when your entire existence has only been informed by sound bytes of buzzwords, catchphrases, and funny noises.
: Toxic Chat: Overwatch got it right
Overwatch has an extremely toxic playerbase that can't even be made to look good by League's playerbase just slightly less awful by comparison. They also have had to repeatedly increase the punishments for chat violations when they have only existed for a little over 2 years because what they were doing was so ineffective. Oh and their punishment system is largely just an easily exploited tool for people to harass other players since it is automated outside of chat reports and they refuse to do actual human reviews of the bans. Not the company to be emulating in this regard.

They want that sweet sweet cable broadcast deal. The games are too long for TV you aren't getting 8 hour blocks on even the lesser ESPN channels. So they keep increasing the amount of gold you can get to make the games end faster.

Yas falls into popular and can carry and kha can very easily to snowball and carry. You don't understand what META means. It isn't a term to describe what pro players do it is just the most effective tactic available for whoever is currently playing that game. Every level of play has its own META; Yi and Garen are META champs in Bronze. If you are speaking about META in relation to the pro game you are only speaking about it in relation to those leagues not the rest of the player base. There is no such thing as an absolute META at any point in games like this because of the variance in ability both between levels of play and within them with various characters like {{champion:136}} {{champion:74}} {{champion:92}} whose kits rely more on knowledge and repetition than others.

The fact that they are dropping people like 3 ranks not based on skill should let you in on what every sane person has known for a long time; rank and ratings don't mean anything they are just imaginary values used to create a self worth dependency issue in the players to make them addicted. This shit has ruined gaming.
Cheini (EUNE)
: (spoiler!) Just yasuo stuff
Doubleint looked like he didn't even know what Yasuo or Darius' abilities did. He tried to walk up on tower with a fresh minion wave one time and fight Uzi. Not like this was fair anyways I'm pretty sure Uzi was a mid laner for a pro team at one point.
: What to pick against sivir+pyke
Heimer can't keep any turrets up against a Sivir he loses all of his pushing power. Velkoz could probably force a mediocre Pyke out of lane to get your mid laner completely destroyed as he roams the entire time and a good Sivir safe farms 1v2 because you have zero engage on her. {{champion:412}} {{champion:222}} probably. Zap outranges boomerang and you have traps to lock down Pyke and kill him when you get a hook on him. She also has more AA range than Sivir. I'm pretty sure you move faster when you get excited than Sivir can with her ult as well.

: Uzi played Neeko as Bot lane "ADC"....
She is actually kind of busted with attack speed because of her w passive having an insanely high base damage at 5. It is pretty much a full lichbane proc with a deathcap every 3 autos. New rageblade is basically made for her that passive proc gets sped up just like Vayne's silver bolts except she actually benefits from both the armor and magic pen if you build her onhit/adc. People have been off building her like that since the first day she got on the PBE. Probably not as good as just ap nuke Neeko with Glacial Augment because her ability numbers are so out of whack but it isn't like it doesn't synergize with her kit.

Well I agree but as for Sion the real reason you take flash on him is to flash forward and blow up your shield for kill confirmations and exhaust is a bit less useful when your champ is a knockup and slow machine. If you were going with something other than flash it should probably be smite because cinderhulk and getting even more farm from counter jungling.
