: Love how akali mains said "omg gutted champ unplayable" then korean toplaners start building bruiser akali due to her overloaded kit and shes set to recieve more nerfs. Disgusting champion.
I'm already planning to try building Phase Rush on Akali after the changes to be more slippery and offset the nerfs to her shroud and ult. Wondering if that will maintain her godlike pro play status - probably not, but it seems theoretically nice.
: Competitive Ruling: Mathias "Szygenda" Jensen
At least Ultraliga starts on 28th of January, so he's gonna be eligible to play from week 3 onwards. I hope so, because he seems so interesting.
: Why the **** does riot balance the game around .01 % of playerbase?
I might sound too harsh, but pros have playing League as their only source of money outcome. For them, it's like being part of a sports team. A football player for example earns money from playing Football - he does not have another job or does not play football to fill in his free time. For most of us, League is just a way to spend free time while we either study or earn money from something else. So it makes sense for Riot to balance the meta around those who play League profesionally like a footballer would play football profesionally. Sadly, League is not the same as football where it's not constantly changing, and that football is not a game that it's creators earn income from. League is the opposite of two - it constantly gets changed, and more satisfied players produce income for Riot Games to cintinue running the servers. Football only lasts as long as people play and remember it. League lasts as long as it's servers are active, so once they are shut down completely, you won't recreate it as easily as recreating football. But still, balancing around pro play makes total sense for me.
: How do I counter Zed?
He isn't that hard to counter. While he can be annoying, there are champions who can deal with him. One of my classic choices would be Liss - she neutralizes a lot of stuff Zed tries to do. Your self-cast ult lasts almost the entire mark duration, leaving Zed with a much smaller window of opportunity to amplify his damage. You also got your root to stop him and your claw to create some distance. To counter Zed with an Assassin, I'd say Ekko or Qiyana are not bad. Ekko has pushing advantage and can counter Zed's ult with his. Qiyana can provide much more to her team than Zed ever will, and she can dodge his shillshots fairly well with Terrashape. She can also push Zed into a wall with ult if your reaction time is crisp.
: Heheh, thank you. And you are right about Self-cast. However, as Xel'airy has no abilities he could target allies with (like a buff or heal), in his case, there are no abilities could be used as the commonly known self-cast (Like Lee Sin **[W]** for example). In his case, it just switches abilities. Well, I do not know how could I teach you. Perhaps, I could send the .txt I made this concept.
I wonder if there is any special coding on the forum that is not mentioned in the official formatting thread. I assume your highlights and spoilers are some of that secret code. Wouldn't mind the txt version
: [Champion Concept] - Xel'airy, The Fang of the Void
So beautifully edited, you are the virtuoso of post formatting. Teach me senpai ;n; Xel'airy also seems pretty nice, but if you do self-cast, does the ability not cast because it's used to change the form?
: I think it was something like pros abusing him? No sense nerfing champ just because 0,0001% of the players can use the champ.
But they earn real money for playing League, and you don't. So it makes sense to actually change the game around those who actually earn their money through playing League, be it a pro player or a streamer.
: Most of these are pretty good suggestions The reason ap bruisers just don't work atm is a bruiser need damage AND survivability I think your steraks equivalent is the best one here as it does.that very well I would also suggest another new item in an "ap black cleaver" I don't know exactly what stats it would have or build out of, but it would definitely have ap, health, CDR and a passive similar to either liandrys or cleavers, incentivising drawn out combat, and rewarding it with a stacking debuff/buff Also personally I think sylas could actually do with some more damage, he's at a 43%winrate in soloq atm and his damage is LOW even if he gets ahead with the sheer number of nerds he's had he just doesn't have enough, my suggestion would be to buff his passive damage He will never be balanceable for both organised pro and soloq while he has his ultimate, so riot shouldn't try Balance him for the playerbase to have fun with him, and let the supposed good players work around that
Less cooldown does increase the damage, albeit it's not that big. But it does seem to be a step in the right direction, at least for me. About that "AP Black Cleaver" item, it seems interesting, but hard to make. But this is what I came up with on the fly. https://gamepedia.cursecdn.com/lolesports_gamepedia_en/4/48/Morellonomicon_Old.png?version=7c3c8a32009cc47b097d22fdd0578775 **Grim Tome** > - ***Recipe***: Haunting Guise + Fiendish Codex + 900 gold - ***Stats***: +80 AP, +300 Health and +10% CDR - ***UNIQUE Passive - Madness***: Damaging champions increases the damage you deal by 2% until exiting combat and reduces their magic resist by 5%. Both effects stack up to five times.
Rioter Comments
: if you play traditional supports then the changes didn't affect you, I however am very glad that mage supports won't be able to become a new ap carry.
I actually think these changes are kinda better for full AP supports like Zyra and Fiddle, as they get very good amount of AP from the upgraded support item and can focus on building their other damage items instead of wasting gold on support item upgrades, which would delay their potential power spike. Also, supports now can place more wards on average, as the full upgrade of the support item was often avoided for it's inefficiency even though you could get 4 charges of Stealth Wards.
Rioter Comments
: What is the purpose of Anti-Poaching ?
To not let Nuguri loose with his wacky Vlad builds. I once theorycrafted Vlad buying the AP starting support item, as it is cost efficient.
: Gangplank was gutted
This doesn't really change GP's stance in the meta - he still has Grasp. It might just be a mandatory rune now.
: When does Season 10 start?
According to the Preseason section, the new season should start on 8th of January 2020.
: D3 in China and i find it hard to climb in plat elo EUW
Do you have any proof of your current rank in any Chinese server through any third party website?

Santinel (EUW)
: Can we talk about Kalista
I think fixing Kalista should start with smoothing out her gameplay, namely fixing Rend, because it causes AA timer to drop after usage. It makes her cluncky.
Rioter Comments
: Man, in spite of the many nerfs, it has been picked in worlds. You will be grateful already if it will not be nerfed further because of that. {{sticker:zombie-nunu-bummed}}
At least he isn't overwhelmingly picked and banned, so he's in an alright spot for Riot I assume. We can all remember last Worlds where he was picked or banned so damn often alongside Urgot.
: I am curious why Panth is perma banned in worlds
He's got very few bad lane matchups, and almost all of them are pretty weak for pro play like Darius. Only Irelia is a pro play champion who can beat Panth in lane. His early game is among the strongest of all champions in the game right now - some may argue that is even better than Renekton. His semi-global ult ult can impact other lanes very well, and he provides a lot of useful stuff like a point-and-click stun and total damage immunity in target direction. I'm not kidding - not even a Cho'Gath ult can kill you if he's eating you while you're using Aegis in front of him. He's not the best late game for sure, but you can still work around that a bit with a build change towards more of a bruiser Panth (something I do). But pro players can comfortably go for Lethality and have a higher likehood to snowball the lead and end the game.
: The likes of {{champion:266}} {{champion:41}} {{champion:3}} have been picked too, which is surprising considering that they pass for overnerfed too.
Gangplank actually got no nerfs this season. The last nerf he got was in 8.4 - that's over a year and a half.

: Why keep the fiora ? u don't have blademasters.
I mostly kept her because of Noble, but I guess you made me realise I could replace her with Pantheon instead to get the Guardian bonus. Would also probably provide more damage overall. But I didn't think of it back then.

: If you had a League of Legends Death Note
Maybe only to ban someone who threatened the meantal health of my teammates.
: most frustrating role?
ADC, but mostly when I have to play AP because other lanes are dealing physical damage. It's usually... frustrating. While there is Kai'sa, I still prefer full AP champions in certain situations like in lane matchup, unless you want to tell me Kai'sa is so op she fits in every team comp.
: just played mundo jungle and it was probably the craziest thing I've ever seen
I do remember watching one video of Diamond Mundo Jungle main, and it was oddly satisfying by how he could farm jungle with ease.
SpasmenoS9 (EUNE)
: Riot stop nerfing Akali
Just reduce the duration of her shroud to maybe 3 seconds, with maybe readding shroud duration increase, but by htting E in it. The current problem that still exists is that she is an assassin, but her shroud lets her act as some sort of a tankier champion aswell, zoning enemies and putting tons of pressure. There are tons of pro clips that show how an Akali inside her shroud zones enemies effectively because of her killing threat. She should have damage, that is undeniable. But until Riot nerfs her shroud harder, she will keep getting damage nerfs just because she can zone enemies like a bruiser. Or maybe it is their direction to embrace her zoning and "bruiser" capablilities, but I don't think it will make her healthy in a long run.
: I'm looking for a main champion who can go mid and top
T0rr (EUW)
: I mean if you look at it, he looses alot of defense and sustain in it but GLP can also make a comeback because of it, yet the whole way of working around your W was the most interesting about this champion. I could deal with his W slowing down after the first 3 seconds but, like this I just don't see the point. Atleast buff the passive or not remove the E passive. I'm really double sided about the changes, but he just feels a little like Neeko to me hit Q then pop W wait for it to stop then retreat and repeat. That's all I see in it. Teamfight you just R them into your W.
I wouldn't mind having another Neeko, because I love playing Neeko xd But I will kinda miss passive movement speed from your E, because it was decently useful if a wave crashed under your turret and you could get there faster to get at least some cs.
T0rr (EUW)
: The Aurelion Sol Changes
I mean... I'm happy that it deals with one of his toxic problems being constant wave push at level 1. What people misunderstand is that you can still keep your stars orbiting at higher speed after maxing W, because the new spin lasts for 3 seconds, and the cooldown is 2 seconds when maxed out. So the new W is still technically an older W, but only at max rank.
: I don't think Kayle is that good as a support right now. She scales better with attackspeed/ad right now and her early to midgame are very weak with the AP builds. Her numbers just aren't their yet to build her AP. As far the enchanter build goes. I think it's alright but still hard to pull off the build probally goes something like {{item:3174}} {{item:3111}} {{item:3504}} {{item:3107}}{{item:3165}} {{item:3102}} and only pick her against heavy AP comps as support. As far the catcher build goes that might work better for her with things like {{item:3030}} {{item:3111}} {{item:3905}} {{item:2065}} {{item:3157}} etc...
In my all four games of Kayle support this season, I did rush Ardent Censer for good amount of AP and a good buff when healing, because it helps both your adc and you with bonus on-hit damage and attack speed. I did then buy Athene to reach a little over 100 AP to get slightly more movement speed from W and even more damage. I think I also built Shurelya for even more AP, CDR and movement speed. I once was tempted to go Glacial Augment, with which your build would work. But I always defaulted on Summon Aery for more damage early game and slightly more healing later.
Uraraka (EUNE)
: Ya, she is good. I tried her when she was stronger, but didn't know how to play her early game. Like any game that my adc didn't die in first 5-10 minutes with her late game was just too good; get level 11 and 16, few items and she literally 1v1 anyone. If her early game is made stronger or atleast have heal cd reduced, I will pretty much one trick her :) Because most of the games goes beyond 30 minutes, as long as base doesn't fall, she can even solo-carry(as support) I think.
Sadly no mentioning of lowered W cooldown on PBE and also no changes in Cooldown of ehr ultimate, but she should still feel stronger as a support because of gaining 525 range at level 6. I usually have built normal support items like Ardent Censer on her to give her enough AP for decent basic attacks and 40% CDR for more healing. In terms of playstyle, pick Targons as your supp item. Max E first for more pressure in lane. Use Q for slow and resistance shred. Heal with W for movement speed. Ult when an ally is in danger or when the AoE hits.
Uraraka (EUNE)
: Malzahar Support-Isn't it good?
But... what about trying Kayle Support? As someone who played her as support, she is rather fine, but I'd probably wait until her PBE changes come live (ones which change the bonuses you get from your passive aswell as reduced CD on your ult).
: Why is botlane so horrible now...
I actually don't play much against mage supports, and even then you can still play around it, albeit with some more annoyance. Bot lane is also a diverse role now - you aren't restricted to marksmen anymore, but you can play other stuff like mages, melee carries and even bruisers (but only with Yuumi).
: Yep, he’s outright dead in top abd support and yet riot keep nerfing him cause people can’t learn counter play vs top Kench
> Yep, he’s outright dead in top abd support and yet riot keep nerfing him cause people can’t learn counter play vs top Kench I bet not because of that, but because of pro play.
: But why do I have to change it constantly?
It's something you would get used to eventually if you don't want to spend 6300 BE on a runepage.
: 5 ok, but I have 2. So ?
You can reserve the first page for Precision, Domination and Sorcery while you can reserve the other page for Resolve and Inspiration.
: Infinite Rune Pages
You absolutely don't need like 20 pages, because in the end they would feel similar. You could argue to have one for each keystone, but isn't it more economic and easier to just have up to five - one for each primary tree - and then change keystones on them?
: > The next Midlaner can remove entire walls from the game permanently. They tested that on taliyah... didn’t feel great to use. > The voli rework will be completly immune to hard cc.(Oh wait thats allready happening never mind). A god in smite already has this, jormundgunder (I butchered that spelling, the world serpent from Norse mythology)... hasn’t actually caused any issues. The trick is that it’s not immunity to hard cc persay, it’s converting hard cc into soft cc... namely slows. So while yes you can’t stun him, but that stun becomes like a 95% slow or stuff like that... so if your just standing there brawling with him you won’t be able to use cc, but he is still kitable and can still be peeled off carries. > the fiddle rework can fear an entire team by walking to them. Still fairer than his current fear.
It's spelled Jormungandr. I did play some SMITE, so I can help you out in that regard.
: So I need some micro seconds to go full real stealth, okay, thanks. Any thought on her AD build on the toplane? Building always {{item:3146}} first, but then going something like {{item:3078}} and {{item:3161}} and {{item:3053}} ?
I can't exactly say, becuase I'm not much of an Akali main, but I guess these items can work. Maybe drop out Shojin, becuase while it does let you cast an additional shroud within a short amount of time, you still want to commit to killing a squishy when ulting. Also her Q and E are mediocre with Shojin passive. The rest is good.
: I have a doubt about Akali's W
About enemies auto-attacking you, it was one of first nerfs to Akali actually. It changed the functioning of her shroud so that auto attacks still proc even in you go inside the shroud.
Zineus (EUNE)
: yeah, but has 46% winrate in solo Q? :D
Azir is meant to be mechanically intensive, albeit to some slightly lesser extent than Riven or Yasuo, but still extremely hard. You gotta position very well, execute his combos, place soldiers in right places and so on. And that is his beauty - he feels like a true general. There must be champions with much higher skill ceiling to appeal to players who prefer challenging themselves. But sadly he's currently too good in the right hands that there aren't as many counters to him even if Tristana mid is rising in popularity as an answer to Azir and Corki. Pros will just pick him, because he can secure decently easy wins and he's pretty hard to deal with. Look at the second match between REC vs PRD in Ultraliga Season 2, and you might understand what I mean. Selfie was playing Azir and caused a lot of trouble for PRD even though the enemy team stole both Baron and Elder Dragon. He was the sole reason his team could still snatch a win even if two huge steals occured, because he was applying so much pressure.
Clownster (EUNE)
: Clash
If I remember, Riot confirmed it will come back.
Zineus (EUNE)
: Azir buffs please :(
You must be drunk. If you were to watch any pro matches right now, Azir appears in almost every game. He has little counterplay, and only a few champions can even stand against him. Only Corki seems to have equal impact as him.
