: Am I the only one that prefers the old Rune + Mastery system over what we have now?
If you like it, fine, you can like the old one, but i will say the claim that the new rune system is very limiting is Bullshit.
: Why is Akali actually reworked?
Point and click abilities aren't fun to play against, they make champions way too reliable, which makes them stat-checky and they end up getting nerfed into uselessness.

Zekutsu (EUW)
: IE is actually getting nerfed again
Well, a common complaint regarding crit adcs was that their power turned on way too late, this is a buff to that. People also complained that zeal items had too much crit chance they wanted 25%, not 30. It's not really a nerf, it's a buff, the kind that community asked. I'm actually surprised Riot decided to go with it, especially right after all those crit adc buffs. They might end up being OP again.

: Thanks for taking the time to analyze. Some points I agree with and some I don't. > after killing Vlad you should've went back and cashed in all the gold you've accumulated, sitting on a lot of gold is not healthy. This lead to an issue where you continued to clear botside jungle and eventually you were intending to take the scuttle crab, but faced WW and attempted to fight him. Here are the problems here, since you haven't cashed in all the gold you have you're already at a disadvantage and then there's the fact that enemy bot lane has an advantage, this fight is not in your favor. Thankfully you got away without dying. You're facing Draven he already got few kills and another one there could've sealed your fate there. I agree, I should base more often. > Red Herring mentioned your death to Vlad, but i give credit it was a tower dive by Vlad, but you weren't exactly full health either and Vlad can dive. Agree with this too, didn't expect him to do so much damage with pretty crappy items. > At the moment it doesn't look like you're losing, but you're not winning either. Your top seems fine, mid struggling a bit, bot losing and you jungler winning, except that you just gave your 600 gold bounty to Vlad so you just put your Anivia in a bad spot. Also while at this moment your score looks pretty nice, you surprisingly didn't do that much, enemy feeding WW was more useful. I don't agree with this. Anivia got a kill and two assists from my ganks and ww fed her a kill, assist and a blue buff. She should win easily against vlad with that jungle diff. Instead she died to vlad solo. I used to main ryze and (good) Anivia was my worst matchup because of the range control. She often lets vlad to even walk to kill her after she used both Q, R and W. Mid lost only because she was worse than enemy mid. I gave a bounty to vlad which only highlighted the skill difference. Also Anivia had teleport and only used it to get back to mid, instead of taking ignite vs vlad. WW didn't really do anything before this. He fed our team a lot. He pulled one successful gank top to kill Trynd and got drakes because their bot had full control. I had successful gank top and four (!) successful ganks/fights around mid. > some stuff happens, you build up another bounty and 19 minutes in you give another bounty to Vlad, this time 800 gold. This is really bad, if you intend to invade keep an eye on the minimap and enemy as well as your own positions: Yea I hoped he's not there and I just grab his camps and go to take turret top. I knew vlad were coming, I just hoped to get out before he comes. Still one for one. > at 27 mins enemy gets another dragon, but your team manages to get 3 of them, you decide to get 2 towers. But if i were you in that situation i would've started pinging like crazy to run for the baron. While Vlad is a risk, your team is still behind and this was probably the best opportunity you could've gotten. 2 towers is still good. Just no chance for baron, enemy has 30 second death timers and we were exactly at the bottom right corner. >29:30 your Trynd gets caught, you went bot, but in the end your team manages to wipe enemy team, too bad you die too. What you had left was Anivia and Cait, both were pretty healthy enemy team was dead i think you could spammed to take baron. Also mistake here, it's pretty late into the game and you as a jungler went bot, you got lucky that things panned out here the way they did. I had to go bot (only at T2 turret) since Wu was splitting and nobody else was there. Also no chance for baron as Anivia is half hp and cait has only 2 items without lifesteal. Not even a discussion about that. > 30 min in, enemy teams get baron, you gave it for free. Thankfully trynd at least managed to get inhib turret and a kill in return. It was not free in a sense that I tried to ult it. However I made a mistake thinking we are 4v5 but tryn actually had killed wukong at bot. > 33 mins vlad engages and catches one of your teammates, then they catch Anivia too. Don't think it was particularily your teams fault it's just that the enemy engaged. So Leona engages, trynd fallows up, but you just sit back. The issue here, with what was left enemy was likely to win either way and at that moment it was either all or nothing, you had nothing to lose there by going in. There's a saying in league it's better to follow up on a bad play as a team than to hesitate and do nothing(or something like that), which is what you did there. My team had lost it there getting caught one by one. Cait just goes to AA range of a fed vlad and gets instagibbed. That's gg. When we had 3 people left, we could maybe had a fight at nexus turrets but our Leona just goes in outside the turret... yeah, I could have gone in but it wouldn't change anything. My conclusion is that we lost the game due to mid and bot skill difference. They both lost their lane and then got caught at late game decisive fights. My chance to carry them was marginal at best.
Anivia does counter Vlad, but before the bounty and first turret she was struggling and wasn't exerting any pressure, but later on, started to hold on. Sorry, but take resposibility for your own actions here, you gave a huge bounty to enemy midlaner(twice), that definitely didn't help. > I had successful gank top and four (!) successful ganks/fights around mid. you ksed half dead WU with your ult. It was not because of you that top was as strong as it was. > I had to go bot (only at T2 turret) since Wu was splitting and nobody else was there. fight was happening, you still had one inner turret bot, you can afford to lose one turret if it means you protect your turret and once it's done you can start running back to protect the inhib turret > Also no chance for baron as Anivia is half hp and cait has only 2 items without lifesteal. Not even a discussion about that. https://imgur.com/a/cfHRI7s * Right now you don't need a tank to take a baron * Anivia is also a rather beefy champion * Your cait already had 2.5 items, she was pretty strong * last and most important, your teammates were already respawning. > It was not free in a sense that I tried to ult it. However I made a mistake thinking we are 4v5 but tryn actually had killed wukong at bot. if you don't attempt to smite it, it's pretty free, junglers rarely miss theirs smites. You were too scared to go in. > When we had 3 people left, we could maybe had a fight at nexus turrets but our Leona just goes in outside the turret... yeah, I could have gone in but it wouldn't change anything. We won't know what could've happened, but clearly what you chose to do didn't help. Speaking of which, this shows an issue in the way you play, you care too much about your kda, you were afraid to go at baron and then right before the end. Your chances to carry are always marginal unless you're a smurf, that's just how matchmaking works. There were opportunities that you've missed or didn't bother to even attempt to take, besides the mistakes you've made yourself.

: Tell me more how winning this game is about skill.
Ok, never knew i can just look up people like that and download their replay. Since i said what i said it's time to do what i said. Gonna write stuff here as i watch. 1. The beginning seems fine, some mechanical errors, but those can be fixed. 2. after killing Vlad you should've went back and cashed in all the gold you've accumulated, sitting on a lot of gold is not healthy. This lead to an issue where you continued to clear botside jungle and eventually you were intending to take the scuttle crab, but faced WW and attempted to fight him.

Your top seems fine, mid struggling a bit, bot losing and you jungler winning, except that you just gave your 600 gold bounty to Vlad so you just put your Anivia in a bad spot. Also while at this moment your score looks pretty nice, you surprisingly didn't do that much, enemy feeding WW was more useful. 4. some stuff happens, you build up another bounty and 19 minutes in you give another bounty to Vlad, this time 800 gold. This is really bad, if you intend to invade keep an eye on the minimap and enemy as well as your own positions: https://imgur.com/DmzzBcV While you are fighting WW Vlad is already on the way and it's visible on the minimap. 5. 20 mins in, your team takes dragon, not because of you. 6. at 23 min you cait and Anivia decide to keep pushing mid and get another turret there, while leona went help protect top. Too bad both leona and Trynd died. So you got a turret for a turret, while i would say mid is better than top. Call was good i would expect them to be able to at least protect the turret, but they couldn't 7. at 27 mins enemy gets another dragon, but your team manages to get 3 of them, you decide to get 2 towers. But if i were you in that situation i would've started pinging like crazy to run for the baron. While Vlad is a risk, your team is still behind and this was probably the best opportunity you could've gotten. 2 towers is still good. 8. 29:30 your Trynd gets caught, you went bot, but in the end your team manages to wipe enemy team, too bad you die too.

There's a saying in league it's better to follow up on a bad play as a team than to hesitate and do nothing(or something like that), which is what you did there. Conclusion: While your score does look nice, you actually didn't do much, the only thing that was obtained kinda because of you or with you were those 2 bot towers. As a jungler i feel like there are 2 ways to save a game you either play around those who are fed and make them even more fed or try to save those who are behind, the thing is it doesn't look like you did either one of them, you just kinda ended up on one side of the map and took few kills and moved on. Also you missed 2 Baron opportunitys, while i will admit first one was questionable since it was on the other side of the map, the second one was definetly there. Despite what Tryndamere's score may tell, he was actually doing really well and was really strong, it was a big mistake not to play around him, at early levels you could've done Wu every time his ult was up and made Trynd ridiculously strong much earlier, which could've been translated into a herald. There was also the issue with you giving 2 bounties to Vlad(kinda missed who got the third bounty, hope it wasn't Vlad again).

: Well, the replay is there, go watch it. Just watch 2 min from the end if you want to see the situation I described.
I can't just go into your account and grab it. In the first place, 2 minutes before the end? you still somehow let the enemy get to that kind of position where they could end it like that.

: My team decides to go in one by one when we should have 5-man deffed vs their baron. 15/3 or not, it's not possible to 1v5 vs team with baron. I would like to see you do that.
Sorry, but this kind of text explanation is useless, it's biased and lacking information. Without seeing an actual replay it's pointless.
: Because their kits are overloaded. How to solve that problem? Stop giving every champion an overloaded kit.
That stupid term makes no sense. Her kit got a lot more skillshots, with skillshots there's a chance of failure so that ability can have more power. Her mobility hasn't even increased that much, it practically remained the same, her ult is a long cd short dash with a very small cc that will at best be useful to stop channeled abilitys.
: First irelia then atrox now akali?
I don't think you understand what toxic unhealthy champion is. Just because champion has low winratio doesn't mean it's weak. Champions with difficult kits have to have lower winratios than normal because those who master those champions perform just that much better and those who don't are dragging those winratios down. Irelia and Aatrox right now are considered very strong champions despite what their winratios suggest
Somaliapina (EUNE)
: Tell me more how winning this game is about skill.
If you go 15/3 and still can't win the game then you're the problem. If you can't put those kills to use then give them to someone else.

It's a pretty weak shield, it scales with collected souls, nor is it really used for tank purpose. If we're talking about proper tank shield there's Nautilus shield that scales with max health.

Technically if you ask the players, there's no tank in LoL even if you build full tank on a tanky champ with high defensive scaling stats.
What makes tank a tank is that they usually have some ability that makes them tankier(this is only one of the requirements), Maokai has his passive that restores health, Alistar Ult gives damage reduction, Braum (i think W) gives defensive stats, Leona W gives defensive stats, Rammus W gives defensive stats, etc. Thresh has none, you might think he has his passive that gives armor, but he actually doesn't get armor per level so his passive just makes him have regular armor and if a game reaches really late and you've been collecting those should you will start becoming an actuall tank, but before then you're not a tank.

: I want marksman to be able to be played in other positions
People are quite willing to complain about adc not being viable anywhere else but aren't really willing to test if that's actually true. Quite a few marksmen managed to get played in other roles in the past and had to be nerfed because of that, but they still did. There's also the issue that community itself won't be willing to even let players try this kind of stuff out, well at least in the past. Right now the community is more open-minded with what can be played in bot.

https://imgur.com/hdoCtZQ no bronze 4 https://imgur.com/EffEBfi also no bronze 4 I did manage to find one bronze 4 in one game, but you are overexaggerating, those games are pretty rare and i can't really screenshot everything in here.

: First of all: The last 10 hours have been night time, so of course no one replied. Riot employees need to sleep too. Secondly: You said you wrote "mails"..so plural, multiple mails? Please don't do that. Every time you write a new request or update one of your existing requests you get put at the end of the waiting queue again, which means you have to wait much much longer. And even worse than that, by writing multiple requests for the same thing you are causing chaos which can result in waaaaaaay longer time to actually solve your problem. If you want the fastest possible reply, delete all tickets except one and make sure it contains all the info in a way that is immediately understandable for someone who is not familiar with your problem. Keep it as short as possible and as long as necessary. And make sure to stay constructive and friendly. Oh, and write it in a language in which you are able to express yourself properly. I work as third level support in a gaming company (not Riot), so I'm familiar with what kind of problems spamming unnecessary tickets can cause and how much harder it makes it to actually help a player. So please don't do that, you are only harming yourself with it.
: cooldown and possibility to swap to the same summoner just like before,not this cycle of swaps you have to do now, im sure they could've nerfed it without changing how it works, nerfing cdr or limiting swaps per game would've been fine not rework-failing like this.
I would say it was changed the way it was because it didn't deliver on its fantasy, a rune that allows switching between different summoner spells. In practice, burn flash, switch summoners around and have flash again and if it's not flash then it's TP. The fact that switching summoner spells while on the go was a big improvement.
: Riot, forgot Spellbook ? undo your mistake please.
Revert? you mean revert it so it would be used only for the summoner cooldown? Sure there were other uses, but SS cd was the big one. The new version is better, it's just that it's hard to use for its purpose.
Blue009 (EUNE)
: Can we have the legacy client option?
Old client is already closed and we had quite a lot of patches since then, as well a bunch of new champions. Old client had an issue that it was very limiting in what it could do so with so many new things in the game there's a good chance it couldn't support a bunch of them(only Rioters would know specifically which ones). I know for certain that current 3 hit runes wouldn't work in the old client, it could only register 3 damage ticks, but not 3 separate abilities like they do now. Who knows what else old client can't do.
: Why ranked experiene is so bad atm?
I checked you last 3 games, yes you did have some weird ranks, but those games happened at: 03:03, 02:28, 23:12. People sleep at night, there are a lot fewer players for the matchmaking to choose from so it tends to fail. If you want guaranteed matchmaking, play during normal hours. Still, there were few games with bronze 1 players, BUT NOT BRONZE 4, don't overexaggerate things it's hard to take you seriously if you do that.
: Its exactly what i wish they do for katarina. I dont want her to be reverted (i like the rework), but i want her to feel more fluid, more like the old one but not that much (or it would be op). Just like they did with lb and fizz: they keep the counterplay, but its more satisfying to play them now
I've seen 2 main requests: lower the time it takes for daggers to drop and remove cast time from shunpo. While i would say it could be debated the dagger drop time, the cast time is necessary it's what makes champions healthy to play against. Katarina was a pretty BS champion.

As before, our primary goal with these changes is to replace the mark charging mechanic and Fizz’s current W with a more satisfying and intuitive version of W** (while maintaining the delay on Fizz’s full burst) -** this time around, we also want to have the version feel more like pre-rework Fizz. LeBlanc is also similar, the change wasn't a complete revert, the delay remained there too.
: Matchmaking and Fairness
You're underestimating how complicated of a game league is for a performance-based matchmaking to work. Then there's the fact that performance-based matchmaking forces players to hunt for stats instead of victory
keniq200 (EUNE)
: From honor 5 to honor 1?
Your friend was not as positive as you claim he was, you get to honor level 1 form a chat restriction, those aren't given for a single game, it was accumulated. The system just shows chat logs from the last toxic game.
: So league is competitive...
Well if you want more skillful players to play with you can find them in higher ranks. But you must get there first and to get there you must be worth those higher ranks.
: Oh yeah, well I don't see it as any better than before at least.
9th life (EUW)
: Alright dude fair point. I see it a bit different now. ty for your side.
9th life (EUW)
: Only viable: (pulsfire shen, riven and TF ) becuase they dont cost more that 1350 RP playmaker lee-sinsweeper Rammus cost even way less. if anything dude i think ur proving my point.
Oh that's what you're actually talking about. So your whole point about champions being balanced around skins is based around the fact that only for most expensive skins, legendary skins. Then there's MF the gun goddess, god fist lee sin, Elementalist lux, i would say all of them were viable, but not necessarily top tier picks. Lux is still getting buffs to this day.
: Those plain old stats, well, believe it or not, but I really liked that much better than these new runes, It's just more DAKKA!
Like it, sure go ahead like it. But saying that the new runes system gives less strategic options is still wrong.
9th life (EUW)
: Oh yeah no your right it just happens to coincide with those champions since there are so many haha. Like how Ashe worst adc just by coincidence became meta with her 1820 RP skin release. Or how darius is all of a sudden now tier one and garen teir 2 with their 1820 RP skin release. need I go on? but I understand your point of 'general balances', but there is till favoritism.
Only tier 2? Most champions are currently viable, that's where most of them are also balance vise, you're really stretching your case. Speaking of Ashe later after also those nerfs she still got championship skin too, all while being considered the weakest. What about poppy? what about cho'gath? Before that we had playmaker lee-sin and sweeper Rammus, leesin allways being viable, then there was pulsfire shen, riven and TF who were also only viable, nothing like OP.
9th life (EUW)
: I mean general game balances is done like that yeah sure. But you can't deny the favoritism with champion buffs based on their skins. And how for instance pro players made some serious nerfs towards champions. take for instance leblanc is she broken? let me ask you was she broken in LCS? yeah she was now Faker can hardly play her at an OP level.
> I mean general game balances is done like that yeah sure. But you can't deny the favoritism with champion buffs based on their skins yes, i can, i just gave 2 examples why it's not true. .We have a lot of champions of course over the course of time some of new skins will coincide with those champions being OP at that moment, but that's just a coincidence. You yourself had to dig pretty deep into the past to find that coincidence. Yes, some changes do happen because of pro play. There is also more pro scene related changes when some important event is coming. But it doesn't change the fact that game is still primarily balanced around where i said.
: It's sad that you can't seem to quit grasp what I'm saying. I'm not saying that I can't adapt to the changes, I have done so just fine. I'm saying that the new rune system is SHIT and offers very little strategic elements other than "THROW MORE DAKKA AT THEM!". What little strategic benefits you could get from runes and masteries was what I loved about the game, because it was only slight bonuses that were never really OP but still had a very impactfull use. Now it's just who can throw more DAKKA! on each other, and that is no fun to me. Do you think it's fun that a Yasuo can just simply 90%-0% you in 4-5 sec when you are playing Leona with 476 armor and Yasuo has no other pen than his ult, but that still gives you 233 armor, so you'd think you'd be ok, right? While aslo tanking full attack speed and full crit tristana (with 300+AD). Sad to say, we got rekt BIG time because the enemy team had way better "DAKKA!".

And WTF is DAKKA?

: Changes/Improvements i'd like to see in league of legends
I'll just take on one of the points: > Currently the game is balanced around pro players and champion skins. That's not true, Game is primarily balanced around high plat/ low diamond. > [{quoted}](name=Ghostcrawler,realm=NA,application-id=A7LBtoKc,discussion-id=2pvn0ldJ,comment-id=00060000,timestamp=2018-07-14T21:58:38.859+0000) > >We target our changes for a High Plat / Low Diamond profile, because that's a good intersection for when even subtle changes can really be felt by the players in question, but you're still affecting a large number of players overall. Players who are closer to Bronze or unranked will have a much bigger impact on their performance by just playing more games than almost any change we can make. Players at higher tiers will feel even very small changes, but at some point we are only impacting a very small number of players. We still look at outliers that are disrupting normal or Bronze play, and for pro play. For pro play we focus a lot on the viewer experience than the pro players' themselves (though we care about them too). [Source](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/developer-corner/2pvn0ldJ-a-response-to-doublelift-on-a-constantly-evolving-game?comment=00060000) And balancing around skins is just a tinfoil hat theory. Currently in PBE we have Poppy hextech skin who is just fine, recently Cho'gath got a new skin who is also not exactly meta either.

: Official Akali Splash Art
Can't wait for all the fanart and i don't mean just the fanart, i mean THE fanart.
: Alternative to probuilds.net
I would suggest to not bother with any of the sites and build by yourself. Look for what looks to work, test it out and adjust what feels off.

: Thoughs and reaction to the new akali!
Hot, but, i find it weird that her Q at max rank gets that deals extra damage to minions and monsters. And don't like that her shroud now protects from turrets, those are supposed to reveal invisibility. I guess it's because other invisibility abilities allow appearing out of nowhere, but because Akali shroud is quite visible you can't use it to sneak up on someone under the turret.

: Get out of Silver :(
It looks like you pick champions, who are supposed to win lane. My guess then would be that you don't know how to close the game. You should try to think during games how to push your advantage further.

: One does not simply acknowledge what the costs are!
I'm guessing you know that only Zed got banned because you checked his account and he wasn't playing anymore while Lucian still played? If he flamed as much as you say he will flame again and he will get caught.
: that right. even if we dont play attention to professional gameplay, there are champs out there that dont EVER get picked unless a huge buff comes out for them. they need to be fixed and replaced with newer champs. im good with some champs getting left behind every now and then but forever? no, i dont like that
Riot for years have been trying to increase pro-play diversity, but pro-play just refuses to do that.
: Stop creating more champs, take care of old one first!!!
Do i have to read the whole wall of text or maybe i could just answer the title? Riot already was slow on releasing new champions and at the beginning of this season, they mentioned they will slow down on releasing new champions even further.
