: If you could ban ONE champion from the game...
I personally hate other champions more, but it has to be {{champion:157}}. If he didn't exist, we would all have a lot less to worry about. When you get down to the nitty gritty of it, there are champions that are inherently more broken than Yas, but his kit is beyond overloaded, and he doesn't really get punished for falling behind. The 0-10 powerspike exists. lel I don't usually have too much trouble playing against him, but he's persistently annoying, and he gets fed more often than not before I'm able to do anything about it. In a meta with this much snowball, it's hard to do anything once he gets even a slight lead. I'd rather face him as opposed to a few other champions, but I think the game overall would be better without him in it, as he affects the largest portion of the community.
VonCesaw (NA)
: Design philosophy
I agree with your post. It is rather annoying having to learn so much about a champion to even begin trying to deal with them. I enjoy having to know a lot about the game, but it's already a time vampire. However, I'm only commenting because of this part: > [{quoted}](name=VonCesaw,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=4kRa7ntQ,comment-id=,timestamp=2019-12-16T20:36:12.237+0000) > To actually get antiquated with a champion, standard says anywhere from 20-200 games I think you meant to say "acclimated". "Antiquated" means "old-fashioned or outdated". Just a friendly correction. ^_^
: Why is aphelios so ridiculously strong through base stats if he is supposedly "complex"?
I just played against him and, man, Riot ought to be ashamed of themselves. Like, the past few seasons are evidence enough of that, but this champ is ridiculous. I'd much rather play against Senna than him. "bUt, He HaS nO eScApEs" Yeah, you don't NEED escapes when you can kill everything in your path without breaking a sweat. The definition of anti-fun has been re-written with this release. He has entirely too much utility in his kit. ADCs aren't supposed to have this much self-access to safety without trading off damage. And, people say that he's weak early, but he can easily 100-0 you pre-6. I swear that they're just releasing champs like this so we have to ban them, thus allowing older champs to be played, as opposed to balancing the game. And, I typically don't say much about a new champion because I know Riot is incapable of hitting the mark on release; the champs are either busted beyond belief, or too weak to have any meaningful impact. However, this one has CT's fingerprints all over it, and it was obvious before release that Aphelios would be problematic. I just don't know that I expected it to this extent. What were they thinking?

: If the winning team is supposed to win quickly, then why even have Baron Nashor spawn after 20 minutes? Why even have the Elder dragon spawn after that? Why give champs 6 item slots? Why let champs level to 18? There was a ton of late game strategy and macro play that used to actually be an important skill to maintain. Now its all just fucking camp a bush and blast someone from fog of war. There's no nuance to the game flow anymore, and none of the game's designs support that kind of game tempo. You have this gigantic map to explore with towers and corners everywhere, yet for some reason, when the enemy team takes an early game lead, you literally dont get to play around any of that shit anymore.

: The problem is the NA ladder, mainly. It's a cultural thing, and this problem isn't something you can just snap your fingers to solve.

I've been saying for a while that the culture in NA holds the region back from success. Too many people get satisfaction out of trolling, and no one wants to take it seriously. The culture, in combination with complete disappointment with the game's state and direction, has lead to my decision to stop playing after this season. I had a pipe dream of making it onto the competitive scene, but with the way the game is now and seeing how absolutely atrocious the NA pro scene is compared to other regions, I've lost all interest.
: Fastest way to lvl up honor
I've hit Level 5 every year so far except this one(I simply haven't played as much this year; game isn't fun anymore), but one of the easiest ways I've found to gain honor is in AI. Go in there, be super supportive, and you'll get at least one honor a game. People are way more relaxed there, and no one expects you to dish out compliments there, so it makes a difference. Of course, you can apply that concept to PVP, but it seems like I get way more honors vs AI.
Lost R (NA)

Everyone wants to be the killfastest killfast of Killfastia, abandoning absolutely every other role, function and element in the game, and now they are going out of their way to screw over their own allies so they can suck up all the kills, and get outright permaban-attitude furious if someone else on the team manages to get a kill, AND immediately give up the instant going all-in at level 1 doesn't work. It's disgusting, and it's what's driving game imbalance more than anything Riot has done in all the past ten years combined, several thousand times over.

It's disgusting, and it's what's driving game imbalance more than anything Riot has done in all the past ten years combined, several thousand times over. Hit the nail on the head. I mean, there's no denying that damage is WAY out of hand, but you're completely correct. It's patience. No one has it anymore. They think you have to constantly be diving and going for the one-shot, when you really don't. Take College Football for an example: teams started running these fast-paced, no huddle offenses, and other teams thought that the only counter to it was a fast-paced, no huddle offense when that isn't the case at all. Ball control and time of possession counters them. It doesn't matter how good their quarterback is or how fast their Wide Receivers are, they can't score if they don't have the ball. So, a little patience can go a long way. Now, I'll be the first to tell you that games are often decided in the first few minutes, but if people would just learn to play even minutely different, it could counteract the speed of the game to some degree.

TehNACHO (NA)
: Okay let's be real, who honestly likes playing against X champion?
There are champions that I do really enjoy playing against. It just happens a lot less often now that the damage is so high and the games go so quickly. For instance, I actually love playing against. {{champion:61}}. That's almost always a fun matchup for me. There's several examples I could give. While there are a LOT of kits that are straight toxic, not all of the kits in the game are anti-fun. The challenge is sometimes quite intriguing.

: Autofilling at 1:20
Just a thought that I haven't put any time into, but what about being able to set how long you're willing to wait for a match before being autofilled? It could have a maximum amount of time on it, but if people are willing to wait half an hour to get their role, then shouldn't that be for them to decide?

I put "Enemy Has Vision Here" on my mouse wheel button. So, if I actually click down on the wheel, it will ping it. I've found it super useful.
Icyyyyy (NA)
: How to ADC?
For starters, practice farming. That cannot be stressed enough. Go into a Custom match, pick the ADC you want to practice with, change your Runes so that you don't have a single bit of extra AD, and don't buy items. Just practice last hitting. Then, when you go into an actual match, you'll be farming with little to no effort because you'll actually be building items/have Runes in those matches. I would also use custom matches and pick a bunch of aggressive/annoying bots to play against and make it so that you'll be in Bot lane 2v1. You have to make your self-preservation become second nature, and that's one of the easier ways to do it since you won't be messing up a real person's game experience. Naturally, this all won't teach you everything, but it made me a much better ADC because it taught me how to stay alive in lane. As far as champions go, I would start with {{champion:51}}, {{champion:15}}, and maybe {{champion:22}}. There are good amounts of safety in all three of their kits, and they aren't hard to play. {{champion:222}} is a good one, and isn't hard to learn, but she has a super weak lane phase. I would wait until you're at least a little more comfortable and have learned some of the matchups. I would also learn everything you can about positioning. Positioning is essentially the main thing to learn about ADC. It can make or break a fight. I also HIGHLY recommend checking out Skill Capped if you haven't already. Their videos are incredibly informative, and will help you to learn and understand so much more about the game. Here's a link to one of their videos about laning as an ADC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHBZWKvih7o And, one on how to avoid getting bodied when you're playing a stick in the mud ADC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqlJN3Pim5g They have a vast amount more content than just those two, and I hope you check them out and get something from it. Good luck on your quest to become an ADC! I look forward to seeing you on The Rift! :D
: How about fleshing out a second ping wheel?
I like this idea. I've though about wanting more pings for some time. As far as pinging for someone to ward something, I ping my Trinket, and then ping the area that I want warded. You can bind a ping to your mousewheel, which is what I have "Enemy Has Vision Here" on, and it's always been useful for me.

: As a support main what do I do if I have to work with an incompetent adc?
I used to main support, and lemme tell you: it's rough. The reason I swapped mains was because it was easier to carry as an ADC or mid than it was as a support. My best advice in that situation is just to try to survive laning phase, and then start supporting whoever on your team is actually carrying. Something a lot of people don't understand is that as a support, the ADC is NOT the only person you have to dedicate your life to. If your Mid is carrying, help him push your lead. If it's your Top, keep him rolling. I hope that helps!

This is my plan, as well. I've been trying SO HARD to enjoy this game, but I have to force myself beyond belief to even find one second of enjoyment during matches. I can't keep this facade up any longer. I almost uninstalled earlier this year, but I have so much time invested in it that I couldn't bring myself to do it. I decided a while back that Preseason 9 is going to be the determining factor on whether or not I continue playing. If Riot continues to show a complete lack of concern for its playerbase and leaves League even remotely close to this putrid state it's in, I'll have no choice but to walk away. The decision makes itself at that point. I don't want to stop playing, but I don't want to keep playing if this is how I will be treated as a consumer. Fingers crossed, man. I don't want either one of us to have to leave.

I have personally had recent, strong success against Veigar by playing {{champion:3}} and rushing Banshee's Veil and Merc Treads. Galio's kit is pretty terrific for playing against Veigar, so throw some MR in there, and laugh as he can do nothing against you. Plus, if you're like me, you'll thoroughly enjoy being able to out-roam him with Galio's ult.
