: Rumors, leaked truth about reworks.
Reworks will destroy the champion we knew and loved, thats how riot works. Just look at the Aatrox rework, the designer said he didn't like old Aatrox, but he never really played Aatrox and cause of that he thought how to make Aatrox into a more clunky champion who would do massive amount of damage in slow movements, but still make them fast enough to make other players unable to dodge. So in high level play He would become real good. He didn't except aatrox to reach competive, but he hoped that Aatrox would "only" be good in diamond and higher.

: Sorry but no. I think that he will be another one next week in the exacly same day, if all works good. Keep your eyes on the forum.
: Community games!
Is it still open?
: Unlikely... early game you wherent gonna be spamming these abilities anyway... you where gonna use one shield per camp most of the time and it rarely reached its full duration anyway due to jungle monsters. These are more mid to late game buffs... once you have items to help deal with using it more often then you can get more effective health than before, which in turn helps naut combat the massive amounts of true damage and anti tank in the game which is what has necessitated these buffs to begin with
Nautlius has one of the slowest clear time of all junglers and while I agree you only need 1 shield per camp, that is no longer true with Red buff and blue buff, those camps might even get you up to 3 W's used. remember that he also gained Shield nerfs that makes his shield less viable for hard hitters early. Best clear for Nautlius to get highest clear time currently would be Chickens> Scuttle > Red with a rank 2 W for the red clearing. After that directly to Blue to make sure you don't lose it. Level 2 ganking ain't an option anymore unless you are against an Even slower jungle clearer, like Shen or Diana. But that's rare champions to play against. Also, I respect your opinion highly and I like our conversation we are having here. If you don't wanna talk anymore or want me to give up. Feel free to tell me and I will stop in an instant.
: There’s more than just that change though... while it looses 4 seconds duration it also looses 6 seconds off the cooldown (from 18 to 12)... so it’s actually a decently large buff to him, as the up time for the shield is over all much longer than before, trading off a stronger shield for a more frequent shield
You say my frequent, but adding a lower CD for an ability who takes up 80 mana on use including already had Mana problems in both jungle and lane before these nerfs. It honestly is a very minor nerf where maybe he get 1 W more up over the stage of 5 mins unless he wants to lose all mana. In the jungle I can imagine it's fine due to the high mana regen you get from jungle item, scuttle and blue buff. But if he would be against a Nunu, Ivern or Nidalee who takes his blue buff away and hard control the scuttles, this gonna put him sooo far back that he might not even be able to be a tank at the 20 min mark which is where his team needs him the most.

: Yeah... no one really knows how to properly counter him so it’s pretty simple to steam roll with him And that urgot match up is mainly cause if he dodges your E and Q then your basically guaranteed to never have the right target with your W... He does a lot of damage, difficult to kill, and is unparalleled in split pushing beating out even nasus... was never quite sure why riot feel like he needed buffs, people said he was weak but I’ve steamrolled every game I’ve been in so far.
The thing is about Urgot, dodging his E is one of the most impossible things to do in LoL, unless you predict it. I always start a combo with my ult > E for the kill. But Doing that against Yorick was just him ulting and q'ing me once as he drops me o 10% HP at lvl 6. That's how storng he was in that matchup. He didn't need to dodge, if I land my combo on him, he simply outdmg'd me.
: He’s surprisingly strong... not many people actually know how to deal with him. He is also the primary counter to nasus so if nasus gets more popular the amount of games Yorick will be facing against him increases which in turn increases his own win rate. Plus he did get buffs recently. EDIT: in fact he does well vs most meta top laners so it’s a good meta for him
Ye, I notice that he destroy almost every meta champion right now, such as Darius, Nasus and Mundo Edit: I also once played Urgot into him and it went so horrible I asked if he was one trick Yorick player. But all he did was first time Yorick cause he looked at champion counters and apparently Yorick hard counter urgot. I got wrecked that game solely cause he was counter picking me.

: I don’t think it’s all about keeping him down or stopping stacks... that’s not gonna ever work tbh. It’s all about keeping him contained... if your team can beat theirs in a 4v4 then your job simply becomes follow nasus around and keep him out of the fight and away from your towers... it won’t stop him from getting stacks but it will limit how he can use those stacks... force him into a team fight and so long as you play your cards right he will be much easier to deal with. Or just ban him... I know it’s a cop out but I’m similar to you that I don’t have a solid counter to nasus in my champion pool, but I have at least favourable match ups for all of the other top laners so I just ban nasus and counter pick my opponent
Nasus can't be dragged around if you let him stack up. If you let him stack up to 300 stacks at 15 min mark with trinity force he will Ult. towerdive you and kill you without you are able to do anything. And if try to drag him into teamfights there's a chance he will just get even stronger cause mid game is where he is the strongest. And banning him doesn't really solve the issue of that he is too strong in lower elos, does it?

: Play Aatrox Like Nukeduck
Aatrox currently is a champion based on knowledge. If you see what an Aatrox is doing it's easy to predict how to dodge his Q and W. His nerfs did nothing on him, but understanding how he works makes him sooo bad.
Rioter Comments
: Comet is the same thought process as why Camille went comet in top lane... the knock up of your Q guarantees the hit from the comet, which in turn lets you harass much better than before. So it is match up dependant as champions who have a better time getting in close it’s better to go grasp... but against champions who are immobile or ranged comet results in the most damage possible. Plus the choice isn’t purely to do with keystones... aatrox likes most of the sourcery runes, I’d argue a lot more than the inspiration runes... so going through the sourc tree gives a lot better selection than inspiration... at least imo
are you saying I should go for a keystone that has 25% winrate instead of the keystone that i have 100% winrate in? Edit: maybe not 100% but way higher than comet at least,
: Step one is usually 'don't let him get fed in the first place'. Other than that, kiting, CC, and hope your tank/s (if you have any) can hold him in place while you kill him. Of course, if you have more people fed on Nasus' team, it's most likely gonna end bad for you one way or another. But step one is the most important one. Exploit his weaknesses before his strengths take over.
My last game who I just had, I had Aatrox who went 0/4 in lane against nasus the first 10 mins. Are you saying the game is over at that point and there's nothing I can do to stop it?
: You get his HP to 0, then he dies and stops being a threat. /ontopic You don't let him stack. Never let him solo farm on a lane. Abuse his early game weaknesses, camp him, put him behind - end the game before he gets to be dangerous. If you let him snowball out of control, try letting him splitpush, and pray to god that your team stomps the enemy 4v5 and ends the game, before Nasus reaches your base. In teamfights focus him down, pray that his other mates aren't too big of a problem. Usually letting him get to this point will result in a loss for you.
I said after its way past that point. Say Im a Sion who got babysat by enemy jungler and my team did nothing to stop nasus from stacking and even if i left lane to help they still didn't do anything

: The EQ and QE thing is a double edged sword and I don’t beleive you should do exclusively one or the other. The advantage of EQ is that it’s more sudden and allows for better surprise, but at the same time you loose the ability to reposition the strike thus if they are able to dodge then they can... where as QE allows for the E to be used reactively to reposition making it better for situations with high mobility or a player who can dodge (very important in pro play, the lack of latency means you can’t rely entirely on surprise, thus reactive Es can be much stronger). So it’s all about learning which is better in a given situation... plus it can add to the surprise if you mix things up... if you mostly do EQ and then if your wave clearing going just Q you can lull an opponent into thinking you are just going for minions, then use E to reposition the strike to get some cheap damage off. Combos are good, learning when to use each combo is better. Plus I still disagree with glacial augment... it doesn’t at all help with Q1 and even Q2 which lowers efficiency... it’s dashes that are really gonna mess up your Qs not movement... so I’d say it’s going to e a lot more match up dependant than having one single go to rune,
I never said you should use glacial aurgement. I said I personally find the most success on that rune. Most of my wins on Aatrox comes from that rune and from experience I had most success with it. At least compared with Arcane comet, I seriously don't see why Arcane comet would be good on Aatrox. I see it being good for people who doesn't understand his kit, but for people who play him a lot shouldn't use it. They should rather go Glacial, Electrute or Grasp. Like the Koreans does.

: lol it is that Kind of players, that Ruin the game for soloque supports. because ppl like you are shouting: nerf supports. Look at the classic >support< champions. none of them Has a good winrate. what u wanted to say is: nerf Champions that can 1 v 5 in a 5v5 game : :)
If I play Ornn and get a pentakill by myself. It's skill based. But if there is one player who is maybe challenger nad has 4 bronze supports next to him and just doing the extra work and they get a win a diamond tier clash. There's a huge difference. What you wanted to say is nerf supports who enchant an ADC's ability. Also, riot has planned for support nerfs next patch. SO HAH

: nerf e...wow so huge.They nerfed zed to the bones and someone like vlad gets a nerf on e. Amazing.
I think his nerf shouldn't go on his dmg, but rather increasing his cooldown on W or reducing his movement speed while W or E
: It's not toxic to say someone's ELO/rank. It is toxic if you use it as an insult or attempt to put someone down with it: > shut the f up because hes a 43% winrate hardstuck g5 This is more than pointing out someones Elo. This is just being nasty.
It is toxic to point our someone's rank. Some people lose their minds for knowing x elo. I personally never try to look up elos cause I know I can be a toxic person when I see that I'm losing against someone who's below my rank, or winning against someone who's higher than my rank. Thinking them as boosted or smurfs. If I can just never see their elo in the chat or anywhere I can always keep myself calm and think that the opponent is always better than me. If my teammates point out a guy rank. I usually report them for harassment and insulting someone's life. Even if it tecnically ain't and harass or insult. But it still triggers their teammates which is wrong thing to do. If you don't think your toxic by pointing out something in the chat. You 100% are very toxic. Don't type in the chat and you won't be reported.
: Pointing out someones elo is toxic?
In my experience, platinum is extremely toxic elo. When someone reachest Platinum they start to act like they are the best players in the world and act all mighty and stuff. When I was silver elo, I played multiple games in ranked team (season 5) as Shen top. I beat the hell out of Diamond players and outplayed them like crazy, but they always found a way back to ruin my life. On the other hand when I was beating a Platinum player they went nuts in the all chat and claimed that I was a diamond smurf and there's no way that they were losing to a silver. I'm not the only one that say this neither tons of tons silver-bronze players has constantly been harassed by platinum players. Without doubt I would be one of those who would say "Keep flaming you average Platinum scum". Cause they flame wwwaaaayyy tooo muccch
: He knew exactly what he was doing... aatrox doesn’t have animation cancels, at least not noticble ones. Glacial also isn’t the best rune for him... arcane comet is as you guarantee the hit with your Q. And you don’t want to go tanky, what would be the point you are hard enough to kill going damage so you might as well. Wunder knee what he was doing, so did bwipo... both played the lane very well and showed the strengh of aatrox... and they have both gotten games where they where left to their own devises and won (wunder’s next game on aatrox he didn’t have a jungler and ended up as strong as his funnelled champion)... not to mention the Chinese and Koreans where playing him as well, the same way.
No they didn't know what they were doing. They are way better players in solo que than those 2. And Some of them main aatrox currently and uses glacial for 100% hitting the 3rd Q. There's one video on YouTube that shows how many animation canceling there exist. Aatrox both W and ultmate cause be canceled. W also travel together with the E and Flash. For max damage output and highest chance of landing your Q you press E>Q. Both wunder and bwipo did Q>E all the time which made them lose multiple CS and Bwipo even died top once cause he didn't do the order corretly. You can't say every Pro player is way more OP than your average diamond player, cause only 20% of the players in pro play are actually challenger, while the rest linger around Diamond 4-1. Wunder is a god example since last time I watched him play he was hard stuck Diamond 3.

: I noticed. But the key word here is "revealing", which i didn't use either, so that's my mistake. Swain's W can give lasting vision of a target, landing that would have prevented this situation. Being in combat with a champion or minion can give you vision of them, but not a direct line of sight, which is needed in order to see though camo. Pyke's camo is not broken by damage either, so he is able to just swim away while he is being attacked. It can be quite annoying.
Ye, that Pyke can use his W in an instant and ain't broken by dmg is really strong.

Ye, so what's wrong with that? Are you saying it's wrong to live free from stupid laws?
Zanador (EUNE)
: The wall curved there and blocked your direct vision of Pyke. You had vision of the area, certain skills, in-combat enemies/monsters wards, poros and so on can give you this. But you need direct line of sight between the Pyke in camo and either a champion, tower or red ward in order to actually see him in camo. Or you have to hit him with a skill that gives lasting vision. There is no bug or cheat in the video you presented that i could find.
"Or you have to hit him with a skill that gives lasting vision." Didn't you notice that I was draining his HP with my ult during the entire escape?
Hydnoras (EUW)
: He uses w but it's camouflage and not invisibility. This means swain should still be able to see him while he is near him but he doesn't for some reason. That is the bug.
correct. This happen twice this game. I was just showing one time it happen due to not having the video being to long

: Why Lucian is "bad" in lower ranks
The reason why Lucian is low win rate in low ranks is the same as every other champion. He's a champion with a skillshot. Champions who has skillshots are 2x lower winrate than champion like Yi, Garen and Pantheon.
: Aatrox Rework Sucks Just revert Aatrox
He's not any diffreant from the old Aatrox, honestly. He is still a diver and a lane bully just like old Aatrox, the only diffreant he barely ever use his auto attacks. Riot reworked him in the best way possible, I bet every Aatrox one-trick agree with me.

: Are you good at league?
Good enough to be in Gold and climb myself to Platinum. So I'm better than an average player. So if we compare that to Golf I am very good. :) By looking at a sport you do eqully good in makes you feel like god in LoL, even through your low elo.
: {{champion:238}} if he doesnt build {{item:3076}} {{champion:8}} bcs he has a lot of sustain just like him and will outsacle him and can kill him in a 1v1 {{champion:48}} this champ is a fking idk its BS so thats why he can beat him {{champion:50}} he can poke him and run away form him easy {{champion:58}} rene counters everyone {{champion:75}} bcs he also has sustain. Basiclly every champ with sustain will beat cho.
Sustain champions doesn't work on him. Pretty much he outsustain, sustain champions and he is also very good at burst damage, at lvl 6 Cho'gath can 1-combo every champion you named by just landing the Q properly. {{champion:58}} I agree 100% with and {{champion:50}} Outscales him. But The rest. Cho easily win lane against Vlad top, since Vlad will always be pushing with no escape in top lane, unlike mid lane his escape route is very weak and babysitting vlad when he's against a Cho'gath is an easy 0/10 vlad. same goes for Trundle, even through Cho'gath do win trades much better in the first levels due to his high base armor. Idk why you put Nasus and Zed here.. CC absolutely ruins these champions and {{item:3110}} even more. Nasus is basioclly useless unless he stay under turret he first 20 mins, which is very unlikely when it's high tier play, and Zed can't do shet when there's a 2.25 sec silence on him. His dead before he is able to use his first ability. Edit: Ignore that Nasus is safe below turret, if Cho'gath goes full AP there's little a Nasus can do to avoid tower dives.
: {{champion:48}} will melt a cho in like 2 seconds on top of healing a shit ton by draining cho's huge hp pool letting him 1v2 pretty smoothly once you get ahead a bit To put it in simpler terms, go google trundle's win rate against cho
Disagree. I meet many Trundle top as Cho'Gath, been out-sustaining them like crazy and usally ends up killing them at Lvl 6. The rest is just easy since Trundle's scaling is almost as bad as Pantheon's

: Who counters Cho'gath?
Yorick absolutly murderes Cho'gath / Coming from someone who plays Cho'gath in ranked 20% of the time. It's not very often I get see a Yorick in ranked, but there was that one time where I picked Cho'gath first pick and someone picked Yorick into me. He ruined my life and I had no choice but to rely on my team for either helping or winning the game without me. This Yorick I meet said he picked Yorick only cause he looked up best Cho'gath counters on a site and has never played Yorick before. Just imagine what a Yorick main would have done into Cho'Gath, probobly worse than a Teemo into Nasus matchup. {{champion:83}} 's Ult is either a Must eat for Cho'gath or Cho'gath can't outrun yorick if yorick his W and E
