There will be no spell vamp on Hextech Revolver. So you'll have to wait till you get the Gunblade before you get a spike in spell vamp (though not called spell vamp anymore), not just on the Revolver

You can still play AP Akali op lane. Just depends on the matchup.

His ult is bad because of the delay. Because of the delay, the entire effect of the ultimate can easily be negated by a smart team unless you're in a prolonged teamfight which is the only place where the ability is good. That, and the odd delay of 2.5 seconds where that 0.5 second uneven delay can basically mean the end of you.
Counterplay man. It also means you really need to coordinate your team and abilities effectively to make proper use of it, which raises Taric's skill cap.

: Can somebody help me understand how to counter these champs?
It depends on what you are playing/what you like to play as to how you counter the champs. I'd also suggest playing the champs a bit so you get a feel for their kit and their weak points. I love Akali, but I struggle against cc, reveals (lee sin, i'm looking at you...even if you're not looking at me) and ranged harass. If I make it to 6 without dying, or only dying once (definitely not ideal) I can usually get myself back in the game. Akali, like most assassins, likes to roam, so you'd do well to push in minions to the turret to dissuade her from doing that. If Akali has gunblade between 12-15 mins she can probably kill anyone on the map. Beware

: The Akali changes..
Sadly, I was not playing LoL before the e-procs-q nerf; i really wish I could have experienced that. That said, I had a quick sesh with Akali on my lunch break, the energy change was noticeable, didn't really see how the dash speed affected gameplay much. I played vs Illaoi top lane. She kept my cs down for a while but a couple of roams from mid lane and I was flying. Thought i'd also give the duskblade a whirl - didn't see that the passive did much but tbh, I was quite fed when I got it so they were dying to quickly anyway. Bottom line, I don't think much has changed with this patch. Where's dat re-work @

: After a year...
Plat division has rank decay, so if you don't play for a length of time you will fall in rank. There is no rank decay in Gold, Silver or Bronze hence you'll have found yourself at high Gold when you came back, due to not being able to decay rank any further.
: {{item:3508}}{{item:3094}} Standard Ranged AD Caster core, also both Fervor and TLD are viable. IE, fitting LW upgrade and fitting Lifesteal item in prefered order. I favor DD over BT though...
I concur. If you want abit more of a bursty build you can go {{item:3142}} {{item:1331}} {{item:3071}} {{item:3072}} {{item:3053}} , lots of damage in your combo + survivability. This is good if you already have a sustained damage dps champ on the team i.e. an ad carry and you just wanna have burst damage from your other lanes. I've tried this one in the jungle with mixed success, though i'm only just starting out on Quinn myself! Good luck
: Is there a problem with the servers?
For those in the UK, there have been problems with BT Internet from yesterday. BT do own most of the UK lines so the disruption was quite widespread. However, I think its mostly back on track now. I certainly had problems last night but i've not had a chance to check today. If you're not in the UK, not sure man.

: people cant argue over roles with new champ select i think your just being mardy and picking about the new Champ select its people like you that get good things removed for others
I don't think the OP was intending to be mardy. I also have friends that only played TB and would prefer to queue for as long as it takes, the point is you definitely get your desired role. with the new champ select there is a chance you will get your secondary role, and if your first role is popular then there's more chance you'll get your secondary role. I personally like the new system. I think it should shorten queue times as it forces everyone to be a little more flexible with their role choices. And you can always ensure you get your role by going premade 5, though I appreciate not everyone has 4 friends to be able to do this with (cue violin)

: no i state it is not any more unique or new.... sure the blooming thing is , but other then that he kit is bland...
A lot of champs have similar abilities but the way their kit works makes them unique. We should wait till the champ is out till we pass judgment - I will be any way.

"Beauty in Death - Killing blows spawn a blooming flower on the corpse that reveals and slows enemies nearby before detonating for damage." B) A virtuoso is a person highly skilled in music OR another artistic pursuit. Jhin's artistic pursuit is the art of killing. Part of this is about making the death beautiful. Part of this is about accuracy and planning. Everything has to come together for the perfect performance." He continued, clarifying that is only on champions: "No just champions. It would get waaaaaaay too noisy if it worked on minions." He also clarified that passive is on his E ability. "It's tied to his E, all about dah flowers" As for why this wasn't ready in time for the reveal, he noted: "Had been planning to add SOMETHING for deaths for a while. Just couldn't figure out what the heck the right mechanic would be. Jinx's Get Excited passive was similar. I knew she NEEDED something to make her manic and crazy but I couldn't figure out the right mechanic for weeks."

: [Observation] ARAM is not as random as it should be
The frequency of an event is not evidence of a higher probability of that event occurring. For example, if you roll a 6 6 times in a row its not more probable on the next throw that you will get a 6 than any other number. That said, as others have pointed out, there are other factors in play such as your champion pool, the champion pools of those you are matched with, and maybe whether or not you have played a champion at all. So perhaps the system is as random as it can be within these parameters (or whatever parameters there may be) {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}

: Tristana Jump
To echo what others have said: Yea, its working as intended. Its the same for Kha'Zix' jump, he will set off traps etc if he tries to jump over them. Annoying -_-
: You'd never run out of range as Nasus anyway! if anything, you'll stay in range to stack. I'm talking about walking away when Illaoi hits E, and becoming a vessel automatically because you left the area.
He's aware of that. If you become a vessel then the tentacles will spawn near you = free stacks
: Er whut ? Ferocity tree is amazeballs on Fiora: - Attack Speed is totally decent stat (esp. together with Fervor) - More dmg ? Yes plz - Free Lifesteal for sustain early ? Yes plz - Bounty Hunter is meh but w/e still some extra dmg - Arp ? In the current meta where you can't get decent flat arp? YES PLZ - Fervor of Battle which is kinda broken and will prolly get nerfed so hard that everybody will get Thunderlord's until that gets nerfed ? Warlords is meh since the nerf..barely anyone other than maybe Trynd / Yasuo really make good use of it nowadays (maybe a Vayne with cheese crit build but most players I see go Fervor on her too).. Fervor is amazing since you stack it up on minions and then go for a trade with a ton of extra AD..Grasp does give a decent amount of sustain sure, but if you go grasp you're basically saying "I'm going to lose lane and need all the help I can get"...Fiora doesn't build much health (if at all really) so Grasp just isn't worth it in the long run...whereas a fully stacked Fervor is a metric ton of Free AD...
You won't be able to stack up on minions in 5:24. Will stack quicker for melee though and last a second longer

Those are the sad events. Basically, your global sadness is the sum of all the points you earned. The most represented category becomes your mood (Isolation, Mourning, Guilt). If several categories have the same amount of points, the last one wins.

: I've found her to be OK so far, the only thing is she seems very snowball-y for a tank-type champion, and she her 1v3 potential is really frightening with her ult.
She's meant to be a Juggernaut carry, much like Darius. In the same way, give Darius a kill or two and he can snowball. Also like Darius, going to kill her could give other team a double kill if ur not careful. It does seem that people are figuring her out, counters etc and how to play against her. Its early though, the tweaks will come.
: Illaoi is strong? http://champion.gg/champion/Illaoi 44.3% winrate. That means: Only 3 champions (Nidalee, Shyvana and Mordekaiser) are worse than her in toplane matchups. Lets have a look at her matchups: There are only 5 toplane champions against which Illaoi has a greater than 50% winrate: {{champion:84}} {{champion:245}} {{champion:57}} {{champion:68}} {{champion:92}} Just to illustrate what that means: **Every champion other than those 5 will statistically win against Illaoi in more than 50% of games played.** So no, Illaoi is not overpowered.

: Top Lane Noobie >.<
Hi LadyParallel, I've read the responses thus far, all seem very good advice. I'd also add that your mindset is also key to succeeding - if you go in thinking you can't play top lane you will lose. I used to be the same with adc; I hated and could not play the role. Then I just thought to hell with it, i'll keep playing it and see what happens. For me, I found a couple of champs I could play well and I enjoyed (MF initially, but mainly Tristana and Jinx). Once I was confident I could play adc, picking up any of the others hasn't been an issue. I never would have expected I could play Kalista. I'm by no means awesome but i'm able to get by and the more I play the better i'm becoming. In short, go in positive! Carpe Diem!
: Can any ADC 1v1 Kindred reliably?
Definitely don't use {{champion:21}} to 1 v 1 most adcs. After the marksman update she does less damage to single targets. And as you say, the ult can be negated by Kindred's ult.

: [Custom Champion Rework] Amumu - The Sad Mummy
Very interesting read. It appears to me that there is a glaring omission though - what is a "sad event"? This needs to be clearly defined in order for it to be worked around. Or if the sad events are the mindsets, then that needs to be clearly stated. At the moment I think the description of sad event is a bit vague and could be misinterpreted. Otherwise, keep it up :)
