: Project Core
Same problem here, I am not sure why I should waste money for a fancy border outline, but it would be unfair for other Project skins to get them free at the first week of release, and these ones not. Hopefully there is someway to get them anyway.

Well aren't you Gold IV? Or must I call you Diamond V just to soothe your ego? You are low Gold, deal with it, nothing wrong with being in a low ELO. I started out in Bronze fcking V, and I was proud of it. Mordekaiser is not Malzahar. Mordekaiser is ruined. Remember that Master/Challenger tier people play with people on THEIR level, meaning they rarely have to deal with bad junglers or other players. They can depend on their team to fulfill their roles perfectly. Of course he can play Mordekaiser if he has a premade helping him out as the jungler. Most challengers and Master tiers don't solo Q at all so using him as a example is already bad enough. Malzahar is not garbage, he is just not in the right role. He was supposed to be a mage, yet they reduced his range, reduced his damage, made him rely on one single squishy voidling that only duplicates when it kills a target. His mana consumption is too high, he has no sustain at all inlane. He is simply a really bad pick in solo Q or in lower ELO's where you cannot 100% rely on your teammates to be good at their role, or at least decent. His teamfighting is terrible since he has no AOE's that do actual damage. His Q is nerfed into the ground, and his W has disappeared.
: Sorry but the new malz is completely broken. his voidlings are the bread, butter, jam, and orange juice of his kit, and he can shit on anyone in any lane. I have no idea what you're complaining about.

I have no idea what you're complaining about. Did you try to kill said voidling? I dont see how you call him broken when you can literally focus the voidling and coubter his entire kit for at least 12 seconds. Thats not called being broken, thats just your missplay.
: No matter how I look at it, I can't see how a free Banshee's Veil' passive every 30 to 12 seconds is total garbage. Now I know what Malzahar was, because he was one of the first champions I got decently good at back in season 3, but his current state is far from being bad or useless. At the rework launch patch he was seriously broken, not so much right now, but he still is a decent pick. The current Riot's policy is that they want to make every champ unique and distinguished from one another and not being able to be good at absolutely everything. Whether he is currently too weak or not, Malzahar is the only champion in the game that can potentially pull a 5-man 2 second silence and the only champion that can suppress an enemy for 5 seconds. 5 SECONDS. That alone is worth an ultimate, but even more it does percentage damage which makes the skill as effective against tanks as it is against squishies.

I Honestly dont see how people cannot recognise the failure of Riot when it came to this rework. He barely does AOE damage, his suppress is 2.5 seconds not 5 seconds. Kill his first voidling he spawns and he will be rendered useless for at least 12 seconds. His passive, and I am talking about MIDLANE MALZAHAR, is so damn easy to poke down, I mean come on. A free banshees that can be poked down with an auto attack is not a banshees. Banshees blocks spells only. His early is garbage, he doesnt counter anything specific anymore, he has no role. No aoe dmg, no burst, no utility, no mobility, no reliable early game zoning. Pray tell, what does he contribute as midlaner to the team? The most important thing is he doesnt contribute anything to a team fight except for a silence. Btw, AD kennen is a thing xD. But yes I understand that their roles are a bit confusing and not right but Malzaharbwas definitely a secondary assassin with his kit, at least, I played him that way. SURPRISE QEWR.
: Only that he was never intended to be an assassin in the first place

: i want his old W and damage back, screw passive, he is a mage, not a tank

: Thats true, his initial design was that he was suppose to spawn those voidlings from his passive, and it was suppose to be his "army" but it ended him being stunlock combo assasin more due to heavy cc than instant dmg (e being DOT). But he was still fun to play, now he isnt, and additionally by taking Tons of instantly appliable dmg from him shifted to voidlings, he is all over the place. Another problem is his new passive that is NEVER gonna be balanced, it will be either broken or total garbage. It's just sad, now when somone jump on you 1v1 all he needs to do is to insta kill that first voidling that you spawn and alll of rest of your kit you can insert in your anus.

You understand the problem. If you kill his "first-born" you literally counter his entire kit immediately. He has 15 seconds cd around lvl 5 on his W, you can instakill him easily. And his passive is either too op or garbage, just like you said.
: I had 62% winrate season 6 with Malza (216 games) with 4:1 KDA Now playing him is nightmare and totally not a fun thing, he is not an assassin anymore couse he has to do a like 5-6 sec preperation before killing anything. They reworked him into new punchbag ; /
Yes, the preperation is what bothers me the most..
: I really miss the old Q. It dealt great damage, silenced for longer but in turn had longer cooldown. It was more impactful. That's the keyword here, I feel. The rework made everything less impactful. Lower damage, lower cooldowns, lower mana costs. A big spam fest of weak abilities. The old W was extremely good for zoning. Like you said, he has terrible zoning now. The old E was straight up better. They could've just changed the mana restore to be percentual instead of static and that could be the "rework". I am no big shot ranked guy, but I remember the old ratios on most abilities were a lot higher. There was nothing better than to ult some asshole assassin like Talon as soon as he becomes visible. This goes for Zed too, when he uses his ult.
EXACTLY! Malzahar was THE assassin counter. Right now he cant even counter a Zed,
: So what makes u think i play only from this acc And im not saying i lost to malz top i am saying i never lost top with malz U are saying his mana pool is low and high mana costs i never need blue in the games i have played him Hes manacosts are high but he has a build in mana return i can zone the enemy team easily with just 2 items spaming q and he has the most op passive there is what more can u want P.S clearly u are the one that has no idea about malz currently
Spamming Q? Lol, please, can you troll another thread, I actually made this one for people who know what they're talking about. I can tell that you don't know shit about Malzahar at all. Spamming Q does nothing, it's literally useless to + as first, so +'d as last skill since the damage is low. The only use his Q has is the refresh on his Malefic Visions and the silence it provides. His manacosts are too high, his E won't return any mana early game because of the low damage it does to minions (Even caster minions). Until lvl 5 you can't really use your E that well without using your W. OP Passive? 30 seconds cooldown, easy to poke down. Or are you not capable of landing a single attack every 30 seconds? It's too troublesome to quote my own post, open your eyes and read it through. I don't care about your wounded pride, you obviously don't play Malzahar at ALL. Or else name your other accounts so I can check them out as well ;) . The fact that I nearly have a 70% winrate on Malzahar over 100 games means that I do know what I'm talking about. I've been playing him for 2 years, nearly 3 now. You never lost Malzahar top, yet your match history dictates that you simply don't play Malzahar at all. Goodbye.
: lel Lolking's wrong af https://gyazo.com/7045180df8cd0fa6bb4645d56e1b85e2 here's challenger
Challenger? Are you serious right now? Challengers are very few people first of all , and second of all you claimed that he had a 70% winrate in PLATINUM. '' Dude Mordekaiser's mostly picked in plat, and his winrate is over 70% there '' - Padus His winrate isn't over 70% in plat. His winrate in Challenger is not a fair representative of all ELO's. Mordekaiser is pure garbage at this point. Also; Challenger ELO consists of a few select, so that 70% might be just one dude who just knows how to work around Mordekaisers shortcomings.
: yea everyone thinks so until they actauly play trundle into malz malz toplane is the easiest to play u rush rylai and u simply cant lose vs any other toplaner from that point
And here we go again. You played Malzahar twice in season 5 in ranked, zero times in season 6 in ranked. You probably never really got into him, and never really knew what he was supposed to be in the first place. First of all he is an ANTI-ASSASSIN. You can play him top as well before his rework and after. However, if you read my post (Really please read it before commenting) You can quickly figure out that Riot has done a terrible job on making him a legit mage who counters assassins. I'm not going to repeat my post as a reply, so please read it through. If you lose against Malzahar on toplane, who rushes rylais you say, you are either not forcing him back, or you just don't know what he is capable of. His manapool is extremely low, and his costs are high early in the game. He is unable to zone his enemy anymore, not like in the past, and you should be able to zone him with ease. (Poke his shield every time its up) If he spawns a voidling, kill said voidling and watch him cringe for 17 seconds before he can have the useless pet back. His E damage is garbage early game. I think you simply don't know how to play against him. Any sensible Malzahar player knows that rushing Rylais won't fix your mana problems. If you are talking about the old Malzahar, yes he was a pretty good toplaner if you knew what to do.

Amen to that. I was a Malz main and i played him so much, that i could play with confidence against ANYTHING, any champ, any teamcomp, any lane. Now, after the rework i dont even want to try him. Cause i know him too well...and this shit is not my champ anymore.
The saddest part is, riot is probably going to do nothing about the mess they made of him. I wish they were strong enough to admit they made a mistake and revert to his old self. Few tweaks here and there and that should be it.
Smerk (EUW)
: I don't play ranked that much and I usually stick to only few champions there, so that doesn't show much. I played Malz often enough in the past and I played him few times after rework, I don't main him like you, so maybe I'm not as experienced with him as you, but that shouldn't concern you, because I don't need hundreds of games to see the power of any champion. His latest nerf was the one that finally pushed him close enough to balanced state, he is weak early, but that is fully compensated but his mid and late game power
Thats the thing. Nothing gets compensated. He has no powerspike at all. Like I said, he has no role in a team now. No aoe damage, no reliable single target burst because of the need to spawn at least two voidlings to secure a kill, no reliable cc, no utility, no roaming potential, mobility if you will. In short: he is useless in any team composition. Oh, and ranked games are usually more serious than nornal games (most people play their mains and good champions in ranked). In normals people tend to play newer things, makes for easier games. So yes, it's better to play ranked and then measure his strengths. His late game is weak, his mid game is weak, the entire rework made him weak. He is anti-himself instead of anti-assassin. Like I said play him mid in ranked and come back to me.
CppL (EUW)
: He had like 57% win ratio wtih 60+% ban ratio,what did you expect? that they gonna leave him like this.
He had a steady 53% winrate before his rework. He was just fine. Thats the entire point of this post. His rework was unnecessary. They should have kept it at a few tweaks since he was already balanced and a great pick fkr everyone.
: Dude Mordekaiser's mostly picked in plat, and his winrate is over 70% there
Man, leave sources. Luckily I can do my own research. In EUW his winrate is 49%, platinum level. And it is still declining, just like his popularity. Check it out on Lolking.
Perilum (EUW)
: One of the most oppressive Mid and Top laners and a strong team fighter. People still find something to whine about. That is hilarious.
You didnt play a single match of Malzahar in season five or six in ranked. You are in silver IV. I dont think you read my post at all. Strong teamfighter. Yes, the old Malzahar was. The new one has single-target spells. Much teamfight, very wow. The only aoe damage comes from his Q, which is nothing. His ult lays the old null zone, and thats that. His AOE damage is complete and utter garbage. I find it hilarious when you dont play the champion, dont read the post, and still comment. If you find the new Malzahar oppressive in lane, you're probably doing something wrong. Read my post.
: Haven't touched malza yet & by the looks of the OP's point i doubt i will. He always was my safe mid laner then really. The rework feels to be very forced though, lots of things got changed that didn't need changing.
They probably reworked him for the sake of reworking. He was a very safe pick, yet the best answer for those pesky assassins that are otherwise pretty hard to deal with if you pick other mages. (Syndra, ziggs, TF, Brand etc) they all have a hard time against decent assassins. Malzahar was the perfect solution and was simply balanced to do his job, which he did perfectly fine. Now they nerfed him even further by shortening his range for example. It's just ruined.
: meanwhile amumu has 56% winrate and untouched almost since release... Rito logic
Yeah, I honestly wish that they never reworked Malzahar at all. They should have just tweaked a few things maybe, just like brand. But not this.
Smerk (EUW)
: I can't agree that his damage is low, his damage can be insane, the only problem is that you need to do a perfect combo with full duration of the ultimate. But even then his damage is quite good, Q deal AOE damage and silence, extremely useful spell, personally I don't like W and even less after last nerf, E is just as amazing as it was and R now deals AOE % max health damage, get some AOE CC in your team, like Amumu or Kennen, and you'll deal insane damage to many enemies
I think one should play him a few times more than only three times in season 5 ( ranked) before evaluating his strengths. I urge you to open up a game in a normal game, play mid, and please tell me if you were able to contest and zone midlane without any troubles. And without a jungler who regularly camps. I can see that you barely played the old Malzahar so let me tell you this : his E damage is way lower than it used to be. His Q damage is so low that people dont bother plussing this for damage. Aoe damage? Barely any. Only useful for his nerfed silence duration and refresh on his E. His ult is a combination with his old W, null zone, The damage just isnt there. It does around 13% max hp damage midgame. Compare his combo to any other mage out there, he is weak in his supposed role. His combo relies on voidlings, they need time to spawn in order to increase your kill potential, and as anti-assassin this shouldnt be the case. You need to be able to kill at all times, not wait out for damn voidlings.
don KICKER (EUNE)
: ***
I know right?.. This rework was literally the worst rework this season. Thet just lost track of what they want with him. Just like Mordekaiser. His old kit ran much smoother, now it just feels so clunky and predictable.
Nesl (EUW)
: "the second Mordekaiser, a failed rework" triggered Mordekaiser is so amazing right now he has so much potential Half of the guys I play against don't even know the dude abilities The champ is amazing and can win 1v1 easily has a good early an amazing mid game & not a bad late
It seems you are more triggered than I am since you became so defensive over Mordekaiser :). To stay on topic I will simply say this: you are in low gold ELO, Mordekaiser is rarely a sight to be seen, so he is just like Yorick and Urgot. A surprise effect, like you said. This doesnt mean he is a viable pick in higher gold and above. Because he isn't. And please, you played Malzahar this season once: with a really bad KDA. I dont think you understand where I am coming from at all.
Lux Lux (EUW)
: Counter Akali as a burst/utility mage
I played Akali for a while now, and I can tell you that Lux is one of the easiest match ups for her. A good Akali will play extremely safe early game. You need to take advantage of this: basic attack her every time she gets close to last hit a minion. If she hits 6, dont engage her. Stay under your turret and farm from afar. Akali can be 1/5 and still win a duel. Try to snare her, and combo her to death. Always buy a pink. Ask your jungler to gank her early. SS her if she is out lane. Akali is really fast when it comes to gathering kills. She has low cooldowns and extremely high damage. You might want to invest in a zhonyas just to bait her into teanfights, since she most likely will focus you and your adc. Ask your tank to peel her off you with CC. Remember: if your snare is on cooldown, stay under your turret and freeze the lane. Make sure your jungler puts pressure.
: Sadly, Riot keeps changing champions' roles, same happened to my Ahri (not like saying I'm unglad with the results), my best advice for you is to get used to him if you still like him :) He's been carried in competitive scenario more than ever and there must be a reason for that.
Yes, however Ahri is still a viable assassin, with reliable mobility and damage. Her role is really clear. And its obvious to the player withvwhat team composition they can pick her. If they want to change his role that badly, fine. But right now he fits in no role on midlane. His damage is mediocre in teamfights because it became so single-target, his zoning ability plainly sucks (reasoning in the post) , he contributes nothing to the team. No reliable burst damage, no assassination, he cant tank, no utility, no zoning. It looks like they lost track of what they want with him. Pity.
Altiverse (EUNE)
: Well, I can't agree on the fact that he's too weak right now, but I'm ENTIRELY with you in the opinion that the old Malzahar just felt better. I really did like him, and has barely touched him since the rework even in his OP days.
It isn't that he is too weak, it's that they simply altered the role he had at first. He wasn't supposed to scale into some kind of late game, he was a early-mid game bully. Basically a lanebully, which he can't be now since all his cooldowns are way too high, and the damage of his skills are simply not worth using for those mana costs. So every assassin that you used to counter before the rework, just shits on you pre-6 by poking your shield down every 30 seconds, and then just go all in because your 17 second cd on your voidling is still in effect. It's insane :(

: OH RIOT Pleasse...
I love the character selection screen, but the loading screen is a no no for me. 1. Skins don't have animations, making these for every single skin will be horrible work + it causes a great delay for some slow computers in order to load these. 2. KDA checks can give people already a reason to be toxic, I know they can check it on the net, but not everyone does this. The division one is good though.

Well, each popular f2p game comes with toxic people. I guess you just have to live with it, or stop playing if it bothers you so much. Just like you I started 3 years ago, and at first I acted toxic back, but right now I'm simply muting them, makes the game way better. Also, you have to stay positive yourself, and maybe invite some friends to play!

Okay, I play league every day and the server isn't as bad as you guys make it seem. It crashes or makes us reconnect once in a blue moon, yet you guys blame your shitty internet connection on the server. Just because TODAY the ranked were disabled because of server problems (which was a good solution since you wouldn't want to crash in your own ranked game) doesn't mean it's everyday like this. A lot of people are playing this game at once, yes, Rito gets money from us (popularity, merchandise, skins, advertising) and they're trying to tend to the servers at least. If you guys just hakuna your tatas, you might find out that the servers aren't that bad actually, however your internet just sucks. Yes; your internet sucks. {{champion:245}}
