: what is maintenance? does that mean fixing all of the bugs?
no, it means making a new logo rofl
: nautilus is one of the best supports right now, why would we rework him?
In terms of balance, yes. In terms of how outdated he feels and how his abilities look like, he needs to change. It's like Mordekaiser, now he looks way cooler than before.

: Riot stop nerfing Akali
Akali should have gotten a visual update rather than a VGU. She is even more snowbally than pre-rework. Pre-rework she was around 49% winrate and pretty balanced. Yes she could snowball, but so can Fizz, Zed, Katarina, Diana, Vlad, and so on. Now she is either wayyyy too broken or wayyyy too weak, depending on the slightest of nerfs or buffs.
: Isn't it a little not fun at all to play easy champs? It's not about ego, most people just find it more fun to have to learn champion before playing it well. When I played Camille first time, she was a challenge to me - I've overcome that and now even the simplest plays are super fun to me - same would go to all champions I play - Xerath, Syndra, Veigar, Swain. When I played something super braindead like Ryze or Lux I felt no fun, because at my first game I felt like I already was a master level player on that champion. It has never been about pride or anything (Not like playing for self-esteem and pride would be bad, of course not), it was all about having fun - and I just as many other players have more fun when you actually need to know what you are doing and when you can see that your decision blossom in effects - and the mistakes hurt severely. It's about the risk, it's about the thrill - nothing's thrilling about a champion who has "You get 2 secs invincibility every time you enter a fight" passive and "You deal huge damage to the enemy and he literally can't do anything about it" ultimate. You said something about "being easier countered" yeah of course, Malzahar is exceptionally easy to counter - you just need to poke him above his range and then have both spellshield and Cleanse as your summoner spell, then stunlock him in 2 or more men at once. It's super easy, you see? NO ITS %%%%ING NOT I mean of course, you get to climb higher with easier champs and you can feel proud of your league (Nice Silver II btw, I bet you are an excellent player with 50% win rate in such league) but was it actually you climbing, or the champion? Why even bother ranked if you use a skill enhancing champ?

Intentionally played bad in my placement so I can have a taste of bronze. Aimed for Iron, but I started at bronze 3 or 2, so there was the perfect opportunity to learn a new role. I play LoL for 4 years now (yup, never really jungled in those 4 years), and the fun is kinda gone. On my main account I ended up in plat 3 and then went on a losing streak to plat 5 (a year ago). Quit League for a couple of months and then started a new account. I just play no-skill champs to see how high I can climb with them. I'm currently aiming for AP Malph jungle only. It's fun to oneshot with predator R E ^^

: U have to play no skill vs no skill. If u pick something that is not point and click u are %%%%ed to the rest of the game. And btw why doesn't lux Q get blocked BUT Irelia E gets????
what's the problem with playing no-skill champs? I ONLY play no skill champs, and finding it easier to climb in ranked. I've got nothing to proof and as I have no problem with my ego, I just play no-skill champs. Keep in mind that no-skill champs also tend to be easier to be countered since their kit is simple and straightforward.
: Was windwall a mistake?
Well, as the windwall only blocks projectiles, you are still able to take him down with non-projectile abilities.
: Someone with a meltzahar nick whines about the oneshot meta. Kinda funny to be honest lmao
Well, not to ruin your ego, but if you watch my match history, you can see how much i've played malzahar in the past months. Plus i dont rly know why you mention my nick as whining about the oneshot meta. If it has to do with the champ malzahar, then you should get into malz's microplay, bcs of all the mages and assassins in the game, he has one of the least oneshot potential.
: i can't anymore
Smurfing is prolly the only fun part about League rn. The whole meta revolves around who can oneshot the fastest, so a lot of cancer champs are being picked, which makes the game shit.

: Technically speaking, ARAM is hardly balanced to begin with, so 4vs5 are especially early (XP shared by 4 instead of 5 -> quicker level up) actually not that catastrophical. Later in the game, when this advantage is lost: having level 6 earlier is a great advantage, being 16 over other 15 is already much less of a difference, also due to many deaths you might lose the XP advantage until then anyway. I am not saying they shouldn't implement it, but the disadvantage isn't that great, MMR also really doesn't matter much in ARAM, most just play for the fun for almost constant action on the lane. 4vs5 can be as fun as 5vs5 for me. And if losing in a "fun mode" ruins your game fun, I am not sure a team game is the right thing for you. PS: Wouldn't be surprised if RITO replaces ARAM with something "more meaningful" soon tm anyway. It will probably only last as long they don't find a better "instant action mode" with high and ongoing popularity.
That it's a fun-only mode, doesn't mean Riot shouldn't look into it. It is a fun-mode, but aram is still part of a competitive game. And believe me, 90% of the aramcommunity are assholes, saying they don't tryhard in aram and even mocking you for tryharding. I am 200% sure they all tryhard. Not tryharding in my opinion is trying builds on champs that very rare or using League as a 'background' game.
ShacoOrTaco (EUNE)
: Add remake to ARAM
So true. I think only if you pay Riot 1 million euros, they will add remake
: Nothing says "balanced" like the 1/11 enemy Vayne oneshotting our team once she hits her powerspike
The day they introduced true damage, assassins and the conqueror rune to the game, a big part of the community is on the verge of quitting the game.

: "Enemy is here" Ping
pings dont work in low elo. You can ping 100 times, teammates are too stubborn to listen to valuable pings. Imo, pings are a waste of programming effort for Riot.
: Would you like Rito to stop making skins and start fixing the game?
If the balance and engineering team had as much brains as the skins team, League's playerbase would be double its current size in numbers.
: The Most Hated Role?
: {{champion:427}} {{champion:48}} {{champion:29}} {{champion:27}} {{champion:36}} {{champion:35}} {{champion:9}} {{champion:63}}
You forgot Yasuo, he has a drinking problem... oh and he is the most hated champ but thats out of the question lul
: How is going vegan going to save the planet? Are trees going to grow faster?
Google is your best friend man. I don't know if my answer to you will be taken seriously, since every meateater has a negative attitude towards vegan people and veganism. I even respect meateaters and their choices. As long as we know that being vegan is much better for health and environment. But Google will guide you through it. My advice to you is that you have a philosophical attitude towards everything that you find until you are 100% sure that it makes perfect sense.
PzyXo (EUW)
: I mean, this is the most dumb answer for this post. If you think that eating meat kills animals. Than plants have souls too and you're killing them. + You're drinking water, which the the place that fish live in. So you're drinking fish's house. Stop eating to save the planet
*sigh* same answer I get from all meateaters... heck, why even arguing with you guys xD
: we will kill ourself. if human population will keep growing like it does now and if trees go down at the same rate then in 45-50 years this planet will be out of oxygen. and yea become a vegan-> eat all plants that also could produce oxigen. {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}} tbh i couldn't care less cause by that time i'm probly already dead anyway {{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}} the only way to give us more time is to clean out the human population by 6 bill and rebuild all rainforrests. not gonna happen. unless Trump decides to nuke a part of the world rofl.

: Amazon Rain Forests!
To save the planet, go vegan. im vegan myself as well for almost 3 years now. People say it's a restrictive diet. Before being vegan, there was only 1 type of milk that I'd drink (cow milk) Now, there is: oat milk, rice milk, coconut milk, soy milk, almond milk, cashew milk, etc. etc... see where I'm going? Believe me, going vegan is the best step you could take to save the planet.
: The community is at its peak
I remember Riot Support told me they believe in reform, hence perma perma banning someone isn't an option. I laughed...
: Matchmaking is soooooo balanced
thats league in a nutshell. actually the game won't get any better than this, judging by my own experience in plat
: >Playing AP Amumu and having a better farm and kda than everyone else isn't really contributing to a problem. That's not trying new things though.
: You are kinda contributing to the problem then.
Playing AP Amumu and having a better farm and kda than everyone else isn't really contributing to a problem. My highest rank was plat 3 two seasons ago. I got so bored of everything that I'd rather smurf and have fun slicing low elo guys with new champs and builds than actually tryharding and losing games that got out of control.
: So why play ranked ? U just let the people who want to win and be good on it, get tilted!{{summoner:4}}
the game is just not fun anymore. It is basically a casino game now; you gotta be lucky to win and unlucky to lose. You need to be a challenger-like player already to actually climb, otherwise you will find yourselves losing games you put blood, sweat and tears into, or winning games you just sat back and relaxed in. That's why I just try new things in ranked
: buy tiamat and you can easily take down whole enemy bot lane wthout any problems.
ur talking about good nocturnes and a bad enemy botlane. It is very hypothetical, same goes for every champ
: So a ult, that directly takes you to enemy, disables all your teammates vision, pings, health bars etc. is the same as akalis ult that just dashes 2 times? they are 100 sec on max level.
Nocturne only has one chance to kill an enemy champion. His abilities are meant to hunt down 1 enemy champion. Akali can easily take out 2 (maybe even more if you are skilled enough) champions if your aim is good. Not to speak about her shroud... Akali's balancing is problematic but in the right hands, people can easily climb to challenger with her.
: Maybe buff akali a bit?
https://leagueoflegends.fandom.com/wiki/Nocturne https://leagueoflegends.fandom.com/wiki/Akali do your research before you make statements about ult cd's :')
: Lets remove 14 days ban for toxic
Well I actually agree with that. 4 chances is indeed a lot, especially since the quantity of games you need to flame in order to receive a single punishment is already quite high.
Kurotsu (EUW)
: This post will make you mad
You just summarized Riot's secret policy
: I answer quite a lot of topics but I tend to avoid answering things explicitly related to work since for the *vast* majority of things on these boards I am not an SME (Subject Matter Expert) on it. If it's something about security or maybe something I happen to know about I'll answer about it, but those things tend to be exceedingly rare on the boards. As another user mentioned, the problem with me talking about anything related to League that could be viewed as serious in any way ends up making it look like I'm talking on behalf of Riot. In most cases, I can't do that - it wouldn't be right for me to be viewed as an SME on something about the client when I'm not. When it comes to balance and the game, I do consider myself an SME because I am diamond 1 and have played this game since season 2, long before I joined Riot :) Plus, I talk on here to just have general chats with the playerbase! If I do see any issues I tend to pass them on, for what it's worth, but I can't answer everything :(
It is a delight I get this answer from you buddy :) I think you should be on the balance team instead of the silvers that are currently in there
: A Red Herring if i'm not wrong like most of people aren't on work on saturday and Sunday why he need answer question about stuff like that? Just case he is from Riot he can't enjoy his Weekend? I would love see you beeing force to work on Weekend for free like you want made him.
so posting a comment is 'working'... I'll grab some more popcorn while u post completely dumb comments :')

Most OTPs have significantly higher winrates than the statistical average. If you learn her well enough, you will be able to climb with her. Why do you have time to respond to such a stupid question but totally ignore relevent threads that have massive amounts of views and posts.

don't bother saying this. He will send his riot fanboys to the thread and downvote your post so riot will label your comment as totally irrelevant because RIOT FANBOYS FTW!!! SEND THOSE GUYS 10000 FREE RP :D

So a Rioter answers stupid questions but questions regarding issues with the client and stuff are left unanswered... lmfao

Well, in my experience, every season the game is getting a little worse. So no.

: Please stop using 'Autistic' as a general, catch all negative term. Its an actual condition, not just a word to describe people you don't like.
Autism can vary on conditional aspects. With autism, I mean the people that are highly highly susceptible to addiction, people that can't control their behaviour and unable to quit the game even if they promise each time they confronted with the hard reality of online gaming. They should be under surveillance because of their highly toxic input, but nowadays the online gaming industry is a free playground for anyone to enter so they just throw away their life (and money) to League and Riot makes money off of that. Get into capitalism, you will find the answers and why I said that Riot capitalizes off of those kind of people.
ChefGG (EUW)
: How is Riot going to adress the poor quality of ranked games in season 9?
Not. They know it, but they want to make money off of the autistic audience they have, so they keep putting more focus on skinlines and chromas than on actual balance.
: Buffing the existing tank items isn't the solution. Mainly because most of the existing tank item are seriously outdated in terms of design. Their are plain and not fun the build both as the user, as the ally and as the enemy team. What we need is to introducing new fun tank items and after that strip or merge the bad ones. For example I would really like to see a rework to {{item:3068}} and having it's passive shifted into a splitpush tank item so you get something like {{item:2053}} + {{item:3751}}. And compleetly rework the sunfire with an passive/active designed for wombo tanks like Malphite, Leona, etc.. purely build arround teamfighting. Another example would be an item that would be great to build on flank tanks like Maokai, Rammus by giving them an item that has a sort of short distance tp so they can flank more effectly. When you focus on pro play you notice it a lot that flanks only happen when mistakes are made. I want to see playmaking on tanks & not make them a punish bot that only works in lower mmr where only smurfs realise they should commit when a flank happends. I also want to see new unique active like something that aborbs damage and later on releases it. Tanking damage & damage minigation is a stat that is really underwelming and often not noticable. We should gain item that allow them to utilize this stat. But my biggest issue with tank items is how many shared passive they get. For example {{item:2053}} would be a great line to build when the passive would somewhat stack like for every point runner item the buildup time is increased with 1 seconds & 10% bonus movementspeed. The cold steel item also need some work because it's really anoying that you can't build situational item because of the shared passives. {{item:3075}} {{item:3143}} & {{item:3110}} is a good example of this. Who's idea was it to make one of the only valid 20% cdr item in the game share it's passives with the true damage/lifesteal counter & crit counter. It just doesn't make sence add all. Offcourse the frozen heart passive is shifted into an aura later on but it's still really anoying when you sit on it.
That's a nice perspective on the itemization problem. Although I think completely reworking tank items could also be risky, because if they do, it could become a balancing issue again since we all know Riot's balance team isn't perfect. I do think Randuin's is a great tank item now to counter crit based champions. I do notice the mitigation when I play a tank. I think most of the tank items should get an update, so they will make tanks tankier when teamfights happen, like Gargoyle Stoneplate. That's a great item that should be a role model for more tank items.
: The reason why riot doesn't buff tank items is because if they become stronger, bruisers start to build them. That's why they should just give tank champions passives that increase their armor and mr by some % from their BONUS armor and mr. That way they still get the stat benefit while not needing buffs to the items.
: I don't know why people downvote this when they have literally no legit arguments against this that they can write here. Riot whiteknights at their best.
Well I can neither up or downvote. Some statements are very blunt, like bad jungler = lost game. Carried enough games by playing midlane without the help of the jungler. But his point about Akali, Irelia, Pyke, etc. is something I can relate to. His complaint about mages going bot... well he could've seen it coming when Riot made a video where they stated they wanted champions to be viable in every lane/role.
: Tank. one of the most broken class since s5 having everything: insane damage, survability, CC, sustain. How much more freelo you want? Just letting you know playing ap amumu and demanding tanks to be buffed is not how you should play tank.
Only if you come and stay too close to tanks. If you are a melee bruiser with Conqueror you should win every trade against a tank in their current state. Mentioning me playing AP Amumu has nothing to do with this topic
Luciferrx (EUNE)
: You cant buff more armor.Seriously.Neither adc can deal with tanks if you buff armor even more.They will be invincible. The problem no one plays tanks is bcs bruisers.You cant do absolutly nothing as tank vs a bruiser top.You get destroyed.Bruisers do dmg are tanky some of them have even mobility {{champion:39}} ..and they can do truth dmg bcs Conqueror. Delete that rune Conqueror and thats it.Or delete its truth dmg and give them something else.Truth dmg is too mutch for this game to handle.
That's why I only buffed every item's armor by 5, because I know that too much armor won't help. Because if you buff armor too much, people would only pick Vayne or champions that have Conqueror as keystone. I also reduced the cost of almost every tank-item so tanks have quicker access to midgame powerspikes as well.
: or just nerf the existing truedamage in the game, legit pointless playing tanks in a conq meta with half the adcs doing mixed damage and the other half doing truedamage
Yeah that's why the Cold Steel effect should be buffed too for completed items. So adc's like Vayne would get a nerf from that too. I initially wanted to buff it to 25%, but that might be risky. Nerfing true damage would be almost impossible, since it's one or the other. Also making guinsoos not stack Vayne's W twice as much would be risky, since it could be too much of a nerf so she wouldn't be picked anymore, so she needs buffs elsewhere in her kit.
