: Do you need someone to approve your picks? If you don't feel like you are handicapping yourself by picking certain champions than just play them instead of asking. You take a champion you play few games maybe look at lolking for info and then decide. Who knows maybe a guy playing fiddlesticks ad finds great success than playing ap.
I'm not really looking for approval, I'm more just confused! I saw a lot of posts from her release 9 months ago, as well as (I think?) her major nerfs 7 months ago saying she was op and all that etc etc, but I haven't been able to see much community buzz around her recently so I was just curious as to where she sits now. I play her because I love how she feels, I'm just interested in community opinions on champions, it has nothing to do with what I like to play :')

: A lot of fighters/bruisers will prefer the CDR over the AP such as Vi{{champion:254}} , Xin{{champion:5}} etc... I agree the crit chance isn't optimal, but i'm sure Irelias{{champion:39}} aren't going to mind that 1 in 5 of their autos will crit. As for the AD and AS nerfs, all items are having their efficiency lowered, so this would probably be happening anyway even if they kept the AP and Crit chance the same. I do think though with AS of trinity getting nerfed, the amount of good AS options for Fighters is pretty low. (Only Botrk and Wits end?) Wouldn't mind seeing another new item to fill this gap (RIP Ionic Spark).

(Only Botrk and Wits end?) Wouldn't mind seeing another new item to fill this gap (RIP Ionic Spark). That's actually a really good point, I forgot about Vi! Yeah the cdr is nice, however a 15% nerf to the attack speed seems a little excessive, especially since it's the main driving force for Irelia's and Jax's strength. But you've made a really good point so maybe it won't be as bad as I thought. We'll have to see if anything new to the marksman update can be used on bruisers though.

: Don't worry, Jax will be insane enough with the new Gunblade. As Scarizard said, don't look at one change and call OP/UP without considering all other changes.

Well the thing is I like most of the other changes, the thing is that with the nerf to Blade of the Ruined King and now Trinity Force on bruisers, it seems like bruisers are being shafted simply to cater for the marksmen. Other than this however, I think the marksmen update might be interesting!

: "The item is set to become almost ADC specific" I hope that's the case. I already fear Talons and Zeds building this as a core item along with IE. gg.

I already fear Talons and Zeds building this as a core item along with IE. gg. Yeah, it's going to be a nightmare on champions like Yasuo, Rengar and certain other assassins, and in the meantime it reduces the power of almost all bruisers who can make use of the item. I know it's meant to be the 'Marksman update', but even in the really dodgy Juggernaut update, Riot only changed or introduced Juggernaut specific items. It just feels like the bloody crit chance is being pushed onto every important item, leaving every other class except mages or complete tanks a bit behind.

: Are you certain it's not the case I mentioned? (the minion dying immediately after the Q, but not from the Q itself) I don't know Irelia, but she could be queueing an autoattack immediately after the Q by default. Or perhaps you have the "autoattack" option activated?

Or perhaps you have the "autoattack" option activated? Almost positive, as I don't have the auto attack option activated. I Q a minion, and it dies, but the Q goes on cooldown.

: And remove the refresh from when it kills something. And the pure damage from W is now magic damage. And E only slows. and remove the lifsteal from her ultimate. And remove her passive.

And the pure damage from W is now magic damage. And E only slows. and remove the lifsteal from her ultimate. And remove her passive. Well, yeah if you want a weak Xin Zhao. I admit she's strong but that strength comes from the strength of 1) how long the stun is if landed at rank 5 and 2) the strength of tri-force and tank items in the meta since that's what gives her most of her strength and 3) the duration of her active W. Nerf any one of those three slightly and I guarantee she'll fall from grace, I don't think she needs a rework.
Minstrel (EUNE)
: My guess would be that the minion might not die from the Q itself, but an autoattack or minion shot immediately afterwards. If you're sure this isn't the case, I'd report this in the bug report section.

If you're sure this isn't the case, I'd report this in the bug report section. Well that's the thing, it doesn't happen often enough to appear to be a bug, but it does seem like an interaction that maybe works not as intended.

Thank you to you lot! I didn't get it but I do now, ta very much!

: Greetings. Did you ever get punished? :) Reports alone do nothing to your end of season reward chances.. and since you still have honors i know you didnt get suspended, but what about chat/ranked restrictions?

Heya! I've had several warnings about negative behaviour, but never a chat restriction or anything. It just had me worried since it happens quite often to be honest...

: Why can Irelia stun when both are full HP
To be honest this isn't exactly a problem with her, plenty of champs have targeted cc abilities but most aren't conditional (Taric, Annie for instance), but as an Irelia main I've noticed its the duration which makes her so strong. 2 seconds is a huge amount of time when you're sitting on a squishy target, especially as Irelia with Tri-force is nothing to laugh at. The stun occuring at the same hp % is an alright idea since it allows Irelia to escape from engages at level 1 or at the start of teamfights, but the duration itself seems to be what makes her so annoying for most people. Feel free to debate this with me though, I'm really interested in what people think about her!
: Try playing agressive, and train that, so you do not need to be afraid of the enemy. often you will be stronger, and playing defensively will then be counterproductive. just try out things and make experiences, even if you die - that's what normals are for, training, getting better. if someone flames you, just mute.

Thank you! I'll give that a shot!
: Lose matches. Don't do that on purpose tho'. You have high normal MMR for a reason. You can also improve against more experienced enemies, stomping worse players won't really make the game fun. Same games can be stompy, but hey, the more stronger the enemies are, the more challenge you'll find! :)

I'd love to use it to learn as much as I can, but the problem is I spend so much time trying not to die in-lane that I miss so much of other things, like better cs, or freezing or roaming :s
: Because ranked MMR has nothing to do with normal. A challenger player can get matched up against a bronze one in normal, because their mmr can be similar.

A challenger player can get matched up against a bronze one in normal, because their mmr can be similar. So is there any way for me to lose normal MMR?

: How can I recover from a particularly stressful game?
Thank you for all the suggestions you lot, I'll take a break for a bit and come back to it after doing something productive. All the comments are appreciated, even the ones that told me to just get over it and I wish I had that sort of mindset.
: If you can't stand losing, you maybe should stop entirely. Moreover, we read that "your team" made miskates..... hhhhmmmm.... OFC you did perfect, and your bad team gave you a hard time, almost so that you just lose "faith" in the game as such? Grow a skin. Or play single-player games.

I didn't mean to come off as whiny, but you can check the match itself, I was Volibear, 16/3/21 by the end with about 70% participation and then 3 or 4 dragons if I remember correctly. I'm not saying I was perfect or better than my teammates or anything, but in that game I was doing really well for myself but evidently I'm not good enough to carry yet. I don't mind losing, that's fine. It's just the people who make it so miserable to even play. I did well, yet I was being yelled at constantly and that's what upset me. I lose faith in the community if I can't even enjoy the game (I enjoy it even if I lose normally) without someone getting on my ass for nowt.

Ah, I just assumed that they still had the 'the champion joined for a reason' thing going, but if not then that's a shame. Thanks though!
