Imo end the intro where Lucian points his guns. As the other user mentioned a 15 second intro is far too long, and that way you should be able to keep it around the 10 sec mark.

: Voice chat for non-premade players
The last time somebody mentioned this I had a mod try to shove down my throat how it leads to 'sexism against female players'. Yeah, without any proof or valid study behind it. That's the dumbest reason I have heard for not wanting to implement voice chat and it's not even surprising how many people on the boards do not care about progress. This post will be downvoted to oblivion by salty 200 IQ keyboard warriors but the only reason RIOT doesn't implement voice chat is because they are an incompetent gaming company who hardly listen to the playerbase, much less care about catering to what players want. I somewhere hear their profit margin dropped by over a million dollars over the last year so perhaps that'd be a wake up call.

Not sure if sarcastic. I live in India and in a country so conservative people pray to cows, nobody gives a shit about the breasts on Katarina or the sound of Ahri dying. And I play LoL at work with people around me. The problem isn't with the game but with the mentality of the people you surround yourself with.

If people did that in the real world they would have their asses handed to them. A lot of people who play lol troll from behind the comfort of their screens and don't realize the consequences of provoking another person.

I don't necessarily disagree with you but if I were playing football with a bunch of guys and I kept shooting the ball in our own goal repeatedly, it wouldn't take more than a few minutes below I got thrown out. That said, while tilting and flaming people due to it is bad, I am sure a lot more people who have been banned would start to post their chat logs if it showed both sides of the story. As it stands right now, if the person fighting back gets chat restricted and tries to appeal to the boards with the log, he gets downvoted to oblivion because nobody gives a damn about listening to the full story and would rather blame the one appealing due to the one sided chat logs. Personally, idc about people abusing each other in chat but when your jungler keeps hitting the dance emote instead of ganking bot lane when the opponent Lucian has been overextending on Vayne like what happened in my last game, imo he deserves an outright kick from the match. Go back to my first paragraph. LoL ranked is more than a game. It's a place where people spend their money, time and effort and nobody deserves to play with trolls like these.

: the tentacles attack ONLY if she uses her W OR your soul from her e is either killed or you walked too far so you are spawning tentacles around you, in the second case the tentacles are attacking on their own every 10 seconds (if you kill those tentacles they respawn immediately and attack again, so if your soul is ripped from you just dodge the first hit and DO NOT kill the tentacle and you are fine)
Thank you. this advice here is going to make it much easier for me to deal with her in lane.

Nasus can't lifesteal for shit when you've got no life to give. Uhm? By the time Nasus gets Frozen heart and Triforce you can't touch him anymore. :thinking:
He probably won't ever build frozen heart if Trynda hits level 6 before he has 200 or so stacks.
DutchPro (EUW)
: People always claim Nasus is unstoppable beast if he gets fed, yet I disagree. Perfect example of this was a game a while back: Enemy nasus was smashing in lane, had over 500 stacks in the late game. He seemed unstoppable but at the point when the 5v5 teamfights started happening as the only option to get any objective he became rather useless. Yes he could nearly oneshot the adc, but he could never get to our backline. Even if he goes full tank, he still gets dropped pretty quick when 5 people are hitting him. His weakness is that he is easy to be countered in teamfight due to his lack of mobility. However the game is more than just late game 5v5s. You just have to accept that when Nasus gets 1-2 items u most likely can't beat him 1v1 as riven. High lifesteal champions or tanks can beat him during that period. His lane is indeed weak, it could be better to just push in and look for roams instead. Get your jungler ahead is in my opinion 5 times more important than if Nasus gets 100 stacks more or less. Another issue is his insane dmg to turrets. You cant let him alone in a side lane for long before he takes an inhib. Yet unlike great splitpush champions like Tryndamere/Udyr who have high ms or a short cd dash (trynda e) that can run when enemies try to collapse, Nasus doesnt have this. He can slow 1 person, but with 3 people u can easily punish when he splits. So what you can do in lane when your team is not around: Pressure early game, get map controll. When your team is around he should be easily taken down, and collapse if he tries to split
Trynda is an amazing counter to Nasus. Nasus can't lifesteal for shit when you've got no life to give.
FleaLess (EUNE)
: >any 1v1 duels results in you either running away or getting smashed. thats the problem, you cant win 1v1 vs her, same as trynda, dont 1v1 her then the other tip: dont let her spawn tentacles, never fight on her ground, your first thing should be either luring her away from her tentacles or kill tentacles first and LEAVE when she ults, just walk away as far as you can
Does she have a cooldown between how often she can command those tentacles?
: The trick to fighting illaoi is to move while fighting her. Just standing and auto attacking will let her smash you. Keep moving even if you hit less. It will help you dodge all her tentacles (her Q is quite slow if you dodge to the side). Keep in mind that she is very mana hungry, so if you do some short trades where you'll dodge her spells (even if you deal 0 damage). She will get out of mana very fast and it will be your free ticket to victory. Also keep your dash for running. So you can start a fight, the moment she ult just dash away and she will have wasted her ult, it will make her go crasy. Never fight an {{champion:420}} inside her ult zone. {{summoner:14}} and {{item:3123}} are good too since they reduce her healing. Also, keep in mind that some champs can't beat her (like {{champion:86}} ) so if you are in that kind of matchup, accept the fact that she counters you and stay under tower.
Thank you. Also, I haven't played her yet but does her ability to control existing tentacles use mana? Existing tentacles as in the ones she has already spawned and commands to hit you with.

: Playing against Nasus
Just dodge the game. I usually had no problem playing against Nasus before the buffs where he only really became a threat late game. But i had a privilege of playing against a decent Nasus player whose laning phase consisted of doing nothing but freezing the wave by his tower (in which case all I could do was hit him and dish out some damage before he ran back under his turret). So I was doing well and even killed him once with the jungler's help till he hit midgame and got that 18% life steal. Boom, now he sits under the turret and farms and recovers every time I pull him out with my Darius's E and land a couple of hits on him. Then came the 15 minute mark and %%%%er walks out of his tower, and three shots me despite me having built {{item:3047}}, {{item:3071}} , and {{item:3024}}. We ended up winning the match as his teammates were utter deadbrains, but what Nasus could do at the 25 minute mark earlier (real late game) he achieves by mid game now. And in order to beat him you need to freeze the wave by your tower and hope to bring as much CC as possible. I am talking of playing characters such as Amumu who are usually shit at clearing waves and have more than one stun in order to keep him near your tower. If you're playing a juggernaut or skirmisher such as Garen, Darius, or Jax against him, forget winning if the Nasus decides to sit under his tower for the first 15 minutes.

: OneTrick
One trick a skirmisher such as Jax, Tryndamere, or Fiora. Such characters don't have a class weakness (for example a class such as assassins almost never beat tanks, or tanks themselves who get kited to Oblivion by most ranged adcs, etc), and can safely be picked into a wide array of threats with few characters who can hard counter them. You can safely pick a character such as Jax into any class of character be it a tank, a ranged carry, a juggernaut such as Darius or Aatrox, or even a top tier assassin such as Kayn. Try switching Garen into a Teemo or Quinn on the other hand and you get to decide how the entire class of juggernauts are hard countered by ranged characters. I'd have suggested you main Jax if it wasn't for his high ban rate. Other champions who fill a similar niche are Riven, Tryndamere, Fiora, Irelia, Yasuo, and Master Yi. Watch a tutorial on each and see which you like best.

Vérontó (EUNE)
: Triforce Garen
Garen DOES benefit off the attack speed. Every melee character does and that goes two-fold for ad based champs such as Garen. Garen abuses every single stat provided by Triforce barring Mana and with the Sheen passive and increased movement speed, it increases his split push and tower taking potential to sky high levels (his Q works on towers). On a side note, Garen also plays more like a tanky burst assassin and the CD reduction helps you spam your Q far more often. Triforce is expensive but every bit as useful on Garen as it would be on any other bruiser.

You don't play them the same way. Therefore the comparison doesn't work very well. Darius E and w synergy makes it pretty difficult to kite if the darius knows what he's doing. Of course, he needs to get into range which is the part where you'd need strategy and knowledge. Other than that, no. > **2.** Has very long wind up times on his abilities. You mean on his q? That's one ability, not abilities as a plural. > **3.** Shit tankiness compared to any other juggernaut in game. How so? Under the right conditions he can be the tankiest of them all, due to his q healing. > **4.** Terrible split pusher high elo due to severe lack of mobility. Even juggernauts such as Garen and Sion split push far better with their Q and inting strategy respectively. ? Darius has the same aa reset as Garen and the same aoe clear as both of the champions you mentioned. Also it's the one of these three champions that might actually build something with tiamat. > **5.** Has a Q so telegraphed it has to either be followed up after a slow, or you risk having an experienced enemy either walk away from it or move inwards to punish you harder. This is also based on YOUR skill and knowledge. > **6.** Ultimate has a wind up time longer than that of most other bruisers (I cannot recall the amount of times I died as a new Darius player because the ultimate took close to a second to fire off). Then you're doing it wrong. > **7.** Is a worse beyblade than Garen. You either aim your Q's outer edge right or it's essentially wasted mana. Yes. This requires skill. It's called a tradeoff. Given, that Darius doesn't usually suffer from mana issues. > **8.** Noxian might is ridiculously overpowered but needs those 5 stacks to be of any use, which means you lose out to every bruiser with a high attack speed snd a gap closer late game. Darius isn't ever beating a late game Yi, Jax, or Fiora due to how hard he falls off in comparison to these and since these won't allow him to recover off Q that easily. k. Level 1, +13 physical damage on your autoattack/ability. Noted, that with your w you can hit it twice immediately, building up to +26, + 30-60% bonus ad. (Also slowing your enemy down and making it difficult for them to escape.. Very, very few champs can actually trade with this..) Up to a whopping 65 + 150% At 5 he gains 30 (bonus) ad at level 1, which increases his passive damage to 65 + 45 = 110. Even with 1 hit or ability hit, it offers more than a lot of passives early on. If you are able to stack it up, it is just nuts. > > That said, I feel that Noxian might is one of the most, if not THE most threatening passive to have in game and boosts Darius to becoming a sky high threat once activated. But here in lies the problem with it in the laning phase - It requires you to hit the enemy 5 times in a row which takes a very long time with Darius's early game attack speed. And considering how Darius is a very strong early-mid game character, an experienced player will NOT allow him to get those stacks up unless he miscalculates or severely messes up. These others are the type of players who will try to 1v1 Darius early game and then jump on the banwagon instead of trying to learn to not fight extended trades in lane. If you only try to get extended trades, you are doing it wrong. You need to understand all trades that are beneficial for you over your opponent (which is matchup-specific). Not something, btw, that you can learn in 2 weeks of playing. > > As powerful as Noxian might may be, it is easier reached against immobile champs such as Urgot and Sion who you have a field day landing that Q on and cannot get away easily especially after that initial slow. Darius continues to outclass most such juggernauts far into late game and will almost always win a fair trade against these. Not to say that Darius is weak (he clearly isn't) but he is definitely as not overpowered as less experienced players would have you believe. He is a true monster after he's landed that first bleed and unlocked Noxian might and at this he is going to need a very skilled player to pull it off constantly, especially in team fights. 'far into late game' low elo is the early game of high elo > > He can be a true monster in the hands of a very skilled player, but once you play him you realize he isn't nearly as imposing as a presence and while he has an amazing passive and tons of attack power, he lacks severely in early game tankiness and the mobility department which makes him a very easy target for ganks. Now that I've played Darius personally, I would be far more inclined to ban a character such as Urgot or Teemo instead over a dunkmaster who cannot kite you while under tower and is going to have a far more difficult time preventing you from grabbing cs. Teemo...?
I'm on my mobile and won't be quoting your reply, but I'll address your points nonetheless. For one, successful kiting means 'not' getting caught in his E which is easy for most adcs to do. Second, his AoE clear isn't comparable to Garen's who can apply high damage regardless of how he places is shots. Darius's effective AoE is the outer edge of his Q and the inner edge usually isn't worth considering as if you're missing the outer edge it just isn't worth the mama cost. Third, Darius is NOT ever going to be tankier than Urgot, Garen, or Sion with the same build. The Q healing gives him sustain but sustain and tankiness isn't the same thing. As for the Teemo ban - Teemo is more than a troll pick top lane and unless I am playing Jax (in which case I play either Garen, Darius, or Amumu), I don't want that furry kiting me into a bad matchup. When you're playing a juggernaut, Teemo destroys lives.
Zanador (EUNE)
: I think Darius' role is to be the swiss-army knife of the top lane. He is in general at least playable against basically any champion, and as you said, he has some built in power against other Juggernauts and Tanks. Nerfing him would be an indirect buff to those classes. The main reason why i think he is so often banned is because he forces people to change their play styles and even builds sometimes. Doran shield+second wind is an incredibly strong combo against his early power, but if people want to pick their favorite runes and starting items, then they will have a naturally tougher time surviving. as you said, Darius basically wins every extended trades if he can stack up his passive to 5, so laning against him is entirely based on whether his opponent is willing / ready to back away early enough. Overextending against Darius is quite easy for inexperienced players, since his E can basically mean an additional 2 stacks if they didn't get far away.
That spot definitely belongs to Jax. As for Darius though, Imo a nerf to his 'Noxian Might' itself would be pretty justified. Darius is unstoppable once he has that rolling but in order to get that going, he needs to either build those first five stacks atop his opponent or get an execute using his ultimate. In return I would much prefer they went back to the workshop with Darius and re-worked the way his abilities were executed because it's shit right now. This guy is probably the most clunky champion I've played. His attacks have a very long wind up timing on them, their hitboxes (especially that E) is messed up! HIs ultimate at times hits people a mile away and when used in-range usually never winds up in time. Darius never needed that ridiculously strong Noxian might to be viable, what with the bleed damage pulling a lot of weight by itself. What he really needs though is a more interactive kit which doesn't make the player feel like he's going to have to press a button multiple times to just make sure an attack actually went off. Anyway that's what I feel about Darius. Playing him has been a pain due to all his attacks being so frustrating to pull off due to their executions being so un-polished. I definitely feel that Noxian Might is a too strong of a passive to have though.
: Hey Riot! Give Jax finally his reworked basic skin that you made 4 years ago!
And Katarina as well. I main both these guys. Katarina looks frail af ingame and I'd love to see her look more like this cinematic counterpart. Jax meanwhile looks like two watermelons stacked atop each other with a purple curtain draped on them. Also give him some lore while you're at it Riot, this guy's been 'about' to fight Fiora since Frieza was fighting Goku.

: He spanks autofilled toplaners
You mean Garen players? Surprisingly I haven't lost lane to a single Darius as Garen after I started playing both.

: When u buy any items which dont give AP or AD, transcendence, gathering storm & eyeball collection will give stat which Riot decided for champ (like i said before Leona, Blits, Tham, Braum, Shen, Alistar will have adaptive AD. But Nauti and Cho will get AP. I just want to add an option, so that you can choose, what your hero will receive in such cases.
Wow that's terrible. I am going to have to double check what Katarina has been getting off those options now. Thanks.

: Adaptive Force (some changes)
Does adaptive force not switch which stat it boosts depending on which stat you've built higher in-game? I always thought it did.

: I wish we had a simpler Client that isn't just eye candy :)
The current client is a goddamn bitcoin mining machine. I'd personally love to see a simpler version of the client stripped off it's flashy skin and with a real 'low spec' mode for my work laptop. I am not the only person here who often plays League from work and while the game itself isn't laggy the client is filled with bugs and starts to lag at odd times, out of the blue.

: well, yasuos had refined their art of ezzing and flashing masteries, that's why we all love them
I beat their asses to the ground every time I see one flash mastery. Nothing gets me more hyped up to crush their ego.

: Saying "easy" should be punished way harder
Last time this Yasuo said 'ez' and flashed his mastery 7, I started to play even more seriously and destroyed his Yasuo ass in lane. It's %%%%%%ed to use that term when you've been struggling to win just as much.
: Only if I cut all other hobbies, work + family, not much left to split on ALL hobbies
I practice the guitar, hit the gym regularly after work, and study and work both full time. I usually play from work and don't touch this game on the weekends as that's my time to either enjoy off work or study. I refuse to believe you find no time, unless you've got very strict parents who don't allow you to play for long, or kids. Either way you don't NEED to be good at this game. Take this game to be competitive after season 8 is a troll's way of acquiring high blood pressure.
: How can you even play this game unless you have no job and infinite time?
Get a job that's so chilled out you can play from it. what, you think everyone who played video games were lifeless?
