: Ok, so the issue with Yasuo is that he was given a lot of tools for the mid lane, where he would be considered fair since ranged champs could proc his shield and his W would require either good reactions or planning. However, Yasuo tends to do better top lane because it's a lot more difficult/ risky for melee champions to proc his shield before a trade. For example, Mao'kai has a horrendous win rate against him. Most tanks have a miserable time with him because their abilities can't break through the shield and he'll probably win the trade hard if they walk into melee range. Honestly I think the best option for Rito to remove this sense of unfairness you get facing a good Yasuo is to decide if they want him to be a relatively safe top laner and reduce his scaling (or possibly 50% armour shred) or find a way to make mid lane Yasuo more rewarding. For a late game carry, he causes to much misery during the laning phase. tl;dr maybe maybe not i 'unno.
Since you mention that, what if they made the shield proc only on ranged attacks? Hm? Sounds good? It's a step to the right direction, no?

: rakan isn't all that strong tho. His ult has decent power but aside from that? In addition to that he doesn't really work without xayah, whereas xayah works and is strong even without rakan. If you wanna nerf em, ask for a xayah nerf instead of a nerf for both. Either way if you ask me we need to keep em in the game as they are for a fair while longer to see where they land before nerfing them while people still don't fully know how to play around them.

It's not the same effect. Tenacity reduces the duration of CC. For example instead of getting slowed for 1 sec, you get slowed for 0,7 sec. Meanwhile Slow Resist you will be slpwed for the whole 1 sec, but instead of being slowed by, say 50% of your movement speed, you get slowed by 37,5% of your movement speed.

It's begging. Don't live in denial. When you see a beggar outside in the streets, what do they do? "Spare some change", if anything. You got enough money to live comfortably, right? Not like it would harm you to give some spare change to a beggar, but that doesn't change the fact that they are beggars. You're also a beggar - you just do it online in a game.

BucZOtwocka (EUNE)
: never ever a yasuo player has reconsidered his pick after i have picked Yi jungle first. Never, THEY NEVER ADJUST TO THEIR TEAMMATES. on the other hand, they play a champion that requires the most adjustment from the team out of the entire champion pool. Yasuo players are just self-centered pricks. they matter, their teammates do not. this is how Yasuo mindset works. EDIT: I on the other hand have adjusted to Yasuos countless times. You know that sucks? Picking Yasuo setup champ and seeing Yasuo fail. making the entire thing pointless.
How can you be sure if someone was intending to play Yasuo, but sees you picking Yi jungle and then decides to pick something else? Unless they had it as pick intent (in which case you're the bad sport for picking Yi), but more often than not, people don't use the pick intend.
BucZOtwocka (EUNE)
: i am sick and tired of being forced to adjust my picks just because someone wanted to play a toplaner that cannot frontline for shiit and requires setup, or a midlaner that does not contribute magic damage. I am sick and tired of being restricted in my picks to magic damage champions with knockups. also i am sick and tired of picking Nasus or Pantheon or Garen top and seeing my midlaner not giving a tiniest of fuucks, locking Yasuo and then watching my damage devolveinto tickling, because Yasuo pick allowed the enemy to stack armor unpunished. TL;DR i am sick and tired of playing with Yasuos in my team.
Yeah, I mean, what was Riot thinking with non-jungle AD assassins? Right? Well, good thing there are AP junglers ({{champion:9}} {{champion:131}} {{champion:60}} {{champion:28}} {{champion:32}} {{champion:113}} {{champion:154}} etc), AP "supports" ({{champion:1}} {{champion:90}} {{champion:143}} {{champion:63}} {{champion:99}} {{champion:43}} {{champion:25}} etc.), AP fighters, or otherwise tanky and/or sustainable lane AP champions ({{champion:82}} {{champion:50}} {{champion:3}} {{champion:8}} {{champion:13}} {{champion:68}} etc.). And recently there's been cases of having an APC for bot instead of an ADC ({{champion:115}}). Very little choice if you happen to have an AD midlaner or not-tank toplaner...

: So after a while they can or not change the price(ip wise)?
After a while their price gets reduced. For each champion released, the oldest released 6300 IP champions has their price reduced. Every third champion released, an additional 4800 IP (or cheaper) champion gets a price reduction.

: I really have no idea why they did this to EUNE, this is just stupid.
As I mentioned it is to lower queue times during low server activity. They mentioned this when they re-enabled Draft for EUNE after they had initially completely disabled it for this season.
Bogity (EUNE)
: Why does draft pick disappear?
On EUNE it's only available during 12:00 - 00:00 (GMT+1) It is to reduce queue times during times that the server isn't very active.

: I like trains
: Regards the autofill
Some people seem to be avoiding support like a plague. How about you take one for the team once in a while? ________ Being able to disable autofill will have a domino effect. Say you get to disable autofill for yourself, that would mean that those that don't disable it will end up being more frequently than not autofilled, which they will in the end get fed up with, so even the last few remaining with autofill turned on (for whatever reason) will disable it. In this case, RIOT may just as well disable autofill as a whole. Queue times increase drastically due to the low amount of people that actually don't mind playing as support. For every game (that is 10 people), there will have to be 2 supports. Considering with autofill being a thing right now, and still sometimes getting over 5 min waiting, depending on role and time of the day, this could indeed increase to 30 min waiting. I, for one, as many others, don't want, or can't afford, to wait that long for each game. Though, for someone that hasn't got anything else to do during their day, for example the lack of school, work, social life, chores, etc. may not mind the wait. Not everyone has that leisure, though. So, how about people stop whining about autofill, and just take one for the team?

Shen is: ~~stealth~~, ~~speed~~, ~~damage and tank~~, a crap. Lowest win rate as top/sup in the same time since 10 months, 90% of matchups are bad for him, he's useless, frustrating and the most inflexible champion ever. The rework has been a failure. His AP scalings and cool downs are just a funny joke. The only place where Shen is ok (and I said "ok" not "good") is in competitive play where you can count on a team of 5 premades. For all the rest he's a pile of smelly things. Regards, A Shen main with 1.600.000 mastery points that hates RIOT, this season, this game, its stupid changes and Shen of course.
Again, wrong topic here. My question is _"why is a ninja a tank"_. Also, why are you a Shen main if you hate Shen so much? Also, I had some fine games as Shen support. http://image.prntscr.com/image/f2a6132414324b45be556ecf34176610.png

BlackInkX2 (EUNE)
: Because Shen is a diversion, he draws the enemy's attention so the other ninja can dispose big groups of enemies. You can think of him as a ninja since he dodges his enemies' attacks, is a martial artist that hides his face and identity and works with other ninja to swiftly eliminate enemies, has katanas and uses mystic arts and Ki energy. There was also a buff when playing Shen that spelled. This unit is a flipping ninja but it was removed unfortunately.
That still doesn't answer why a ninja is a tank....

: Petition for solving autofilled players who refuse to play their roles
Although you must realize that reporting in team select can be abused. For example you may pick an offmeta champion for an offmeta role, but your team will take that as trolling and report you. Or a premade team want to tell you what role you should play, and if you don't, they report you for trolling. Etc. The best you can hope for is to report them at the end screen for Griefing, and explain in the box the situation.

The first one that came to my mind is here under "[Pupil of Stick](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stone_(Marvel_Comics))" That is good enough explanation for me; There are various types of ninjas out there.
So the appearance of a tank ninja in other fictional works is a "good enough explanation"? Frankly, it still doesn't make any sense for a ninja to be a tank. That's like taking a tank (an armored vehicle) and saying that it's a spy vehicle.

The whole idea of a "ninja" is to be fast and unseen. The complete opposite of a tank. > > Now, you go into the wrong topic. What I'm trying to discuss is a ninja being a tank, and you wrote a whole novel about not that. Ok so the whole idea of a pirate is to sail the sea on his ship and attack other ships to rob them. What the hell is doing a pirate on land? Let's delete {{champion:41}} and {{champion:21}} already!
You could of asked why a fish {{champion:267}} is on land, but you rather go with the pirates? Each champion is in the fields of justice of their own purpose, but how is that related to what I asked? I'm not asking why a ninja is in the arena, but why a ninja is a tank. Can't answer that? Then move along.
: Because their are different type of ninja's. The only issue I have with shen from a game design perspective is that they actually want to give him some damage synergy with items. That's actually strange for a champion that shouldn't be building damage items in the first place. I like to compair this with poppy. That is now officially a warden (defensive tank), just like shen. However you still can see a hugh playstyle differents between the two despite they suppose to have similar functionalities. In that regard the old shen was a way better Warden than the new shen is. Based on the dev blog that originally introduced all these classes. Shen was a primary example of a Warden. But to be honnest I have the feeling they really attempt to change him into a Warden (hybrid Skirmisher) instead. And to honnest I would really like to see him going more into that direction with how his kit currently functions. For example a cool change for him would be giving him the ability to dash to his spirit blade when within the 600 range of it when right clicking. Another cool change would be that his recall animation reduces with 0.5 seconds when recalling near his spirit blade. Just these small things that have a hugh impact ingame to really give him that ninja feeling. But the better solution is to compleetly rework him again. The spirit blade mechanic is just awfull. It's a nice design but you really don't have controle over it despite almost all his abilities controle the dam thing. You really need one spamming abilities to actually controle the direction & set it up but that failed horrible in doing so.
Again that answers nothing. Different types of ninja? The whole idea of a "ninja" is to be fast and unseen. The complete opposite of a tank. Now, you go into the wrong topic. What I'm trying to discuss is a ninja being a tank, and you wrote a whole novel about not that.

Cassio may have a bit higher IQ than a fish.

The system doesn't recognize fake flaming from real flaming. If you flame, and you get reported, then yes, you absolutely can get punished.

: Because Shen is focusing on his Ki energy. And Ki is mystic barrier stuff and ninjutsu bla. See it all fits with the "Logic".
That doesn't quite explain anything.

Fizz is an assassin, though. Anything can be a bruiser if you build them as such. Because Teemo fcks the rules. And as for Nami... There are a few theories, two of them being: http://image.prntscr.com/image/fc516f73c0b14b9a8b66ed766ff2f935.png (don't know who the artist is) http://pre09.deviantart.net/bee1/th/pre/i/2012/344/3/2/lol_comic_1_by_lukebm-d5nos7c.png [Source](http://lukebm.deviantart.com/art/LoL-comic-1-342118344)
: Shen and Zed are the complete opposite, Shen's ult protects a single ally, Zed's kills a single ally. Zed focuses more on damage, Shen focuses on protecting his team. Just because Shen is a ninja doesnt mean he needs to do constant/more dmg :P
You people don't realize what my point is here: _"Why is a **ninja** a **tank**?"_
Q Ren (EUW)
: For the same reason Sivir can throw infinite boomerangs out of nowhere
Girls got their little hiding spaces :)
: Shen is the good guy ninja who stays behind to stop the enemy from pursuing his friends. That's why he's a tank. And obviously complete opposite to Zed as he should be.
Still doesn't make sense as a ninja's theme to be a tank.
: Ninjas in naruto are tanky.
Ninjas in Naruto were originally meant to be mages, but mages were too mainstream so the writer decided to go with ninjas with lots of magic arts. I mean, ninja finger techniques.
: imagine if Riot made every champion available in ARAM regardless of whether you owned them or not. RIP ARAM accounts. Although it would probably have the knock on effect of increasing the amount of dodges in champion select.
The more that people like to dodge, the more they'll end up in low priority. Ain't no problem.
