: You're most likely looking at 3rd party sites that don't update properly. It's not possible to queue up in ranked if you're under lvl 30.
still doesn't explain why we can find so many unranked/lvl 30-35 in high gold elo
: Play Aatrox Like Nukeduck
i just want to know who's idea was to make aa champ into caster? and how is he not fired yet. stop pretending that this rework is good, yes it's fun to play but not good at any way u nerfed his early game which was the only thing going for him, no matter how much u get fed it's easy to get out played by anyone who understand how to play against u in mid game and in late game u are pretty much either go full tank so u become at least useful as human shield or get one shot by other champ. but i have to give it to u guys the only thing i liked about this rework is his mecha's white chrome.
: This topic is new and original.
i didn't bring up this topic to be either new or original just wanted to let out some of the rage within me cuzed by this rework

: Everyone calling aatrox riven 2.0 is really unsettling for me. I guarantee you, I'm not waiting for the Pool Party Aatrox skin so he's obviously very unlike Riven!
who knows that might turn me on
: > Aatrox used to have the voice of a wise man yet u could feel the darkness within him and his personalty was so unique. His personality wasn’t there, he was monotone and lifeless. > ppl kept telling me that his kit was binary which made him either too strong if rito buffed him or too weak and i don't agree with that for only 1 reason rito never buffed him in any patch since his release on 2013 ( his mini rework doesn't count ), aatrox kit was weak due to one thing and it's the easy counter pick and being able to counter him by buying only 2 items ( these sexy bois ) or picking any champ that blind stun or slows him, rito could have easy done one thing to prevent that and it's by making him attack speed slow resist while on ult form or make his Q UNSTOPPABLE. You realise just before he was reworked he was considered the strongest top laner in the game... that wasn’t even due to a buff to him, a minor buff in his items caused this. That shows the volidity of him... he went from a joke to op with only slight indirect buffs. Riot could never buff him because it outright wasn’t safe to. > Aatrox lore used to be about this darken who seeks balance in the world not for it's good but for wars to last so he gets stronger That’s speculation at best... his lore litterally had nothing in it, he appears in wars, turns the tide, then disappears... that’s it, everything else is headcannon at best. > i could easily care less about anything else but this even if they reworked him to look like a the pink panther or Disney princes i wouldn't mind but this kit is just awful, you can't just change a champ that's known and loved for playing him as auto attack to skills only attack this is like changing champ like heca or cho gath to auto attack, you pretty much changed the only thing Aatrox mains loved about him and replaced it with the only thing any one that plays attack speed champs hates. What made people love aatrox is also what made him need a rework simple as that... once you remove his toxic elements your left with his QE and revive... changing him into a caster with a similar vein to aatrox (sustain, dps, building up to a large third hit, ability to take on multible people at once) while fitting better into his weapon choice and theme, as well as distancing him from champions like yi and trynd. And he is nothing like riven... he has a 3 part Q which isn’t even unique to riven, that’s litterally where the similarities end. > can't judge this one yet as i didn't read the new lore but just knowing that they changed the Tryndamer part is already enough to make me hate it Except they haven’t gotten rid of that... aatrox wants to destroy the world to end his suffering, to do that he needs to have a host that can withstand his power for long enough, as most people only last a few seconds before disintegrating... this is what rhaast has managed with kayn and what varus has with val and kai... aatrox is taking matters into his own hands and grooming a candidate to become ready to become a host... aka trynd. So everything that aatrox did to trynd is still cannon, just for an actual reason. > so yeah good luck everyone and enjoy your main be for rito kills him, cuz i wish i played him more before the rework You knew full well it was coming and it was foolish to assume you’d still like him... you should have prepared to loose him. ___ Nothing wrong with hating the rework... but you have to understand why it happened, why riot did it the way they did, and move on... ultimately that’s best, and who knows you might find a replacement for aatrox one day.
> His personality wasn’t there, he was monotone and lifeless. this sentence alone proves that u never played the old aatrox, old aatrox was never meant to be life full he was meant to be a mysterious warrior even in his teaser he was announced as a legend and myth > You realise just before he was reworked he was considered the strongest top laner in the game... that wasn’t even due to a buff to him, a minor buff in his items caused this. That shows the volidity of him... he went from a joke to op with only slight indirect buffs. Riot could never buff him because it outright wasn’t safe to. you know that's the same with any other champ lets say that rito buffed static shiv and infinty edge wouldn't that make champ like yasuo, jinx, trynda, yi etc... op and on top of the mate? Rito buffed 2 items that any aatrox would usually buy on his full build, also consdring the fact that aatrox was out of the mate for so long and items have been changing left and right without effecting him that means the champ it self was well designed. > That’s speculation at best... his lore litterally had nothing in it, he appears in wars, turns the tide, then disappears... that’s it, everything else is headcannon at best. again that was the point, a mysterios demon who turns the tide > What made people love aatrox is also what made him need a rework simple as that... once you remove his toxic elements your left with his QE and revive... changing him into a caster with a similar vein to aatrox (sustain, dps, building up to a large third hit, ability to take on multible people at once) while fitting better into his weapon choice and theme, as well as distancing him from champions like yi and trynd. And he is nothing like riven... he has a 3 part Q which isn’t even unique to riven, that’s litterally where the similarities end. toxic elments for real?, those 2 toxic elemnts are what made aatrox so uniqe to be able to drain tanks and know when to swap betweed blood thirst and blood last that what made ppl love him, u talk like somone who got owned by a fed aatrox at late game which scard u to life from him thinking that his kit is broken which is pretty much what any other champ will make u feel like if u don't understand them. also yes he's pretty much a riven knock off his Q is pretty much a similar Q to riven his W is cc which in a way similar to riven's cc W his E is the same but with no shield his R makes him bigger and have higher dmg + ga just like riven makes her sword bigger and deal more dmg > Except they haven’t gotten rid of that... aatrox wants to destroy the world to end his suffering, to do that he needs to have a host that can withstand his power for long enough, as most people only last a few seconds before disintegrating... this is what rhaast has managed with kayn and what varus has with val and kai... aatrox is taking matters into his own hands and grooming a candidate to become ready to become a host... aka trynd. So everything that aatrox did to trynd is still cannon, just for an actual reason. they did the lore was about aatrox buffing trynda tripe so they can win the battle but he over buffed em so he had to turn on them and kill them all now the new lore he just killed all of them for his own gain then corrupted trynda.
