: Maokai nerf, when?
Mao has been outside of top 5 junglers ever since nerf and usually stays outside of top 10. His winrate is typically 49%-51% range. He certainly doesnt need any more nerfs.

: I feel liuke the issue with skarner is simply although hes far from weak and is actyually really good ... the issue is why play him when you can play Vi whocan do the the same thing... i think what skarner needs is maybe his ult to be like Urgots now fires a stinger hitting first target hit and suprresing them reeling them in sort of thing because his ult seems very weak past the laning....
Jeez..... Skarners ult is the only thing that makes him semi-viable. His ult could win games by itself mid game, that is before every ADC had access to 2500 HP shields from supports and so on.

: Thoughts on Master Yi's current state.
Yi is more than fine - high risk and high champion. Buffing him would be insane, in particular towards lower ELOs. Team who gets that Yi smurf wins. His winrate should never be above 50% given that he is feast or famine champion with relatively high skill cap (need to know how to play him to get kills otherwise you are useless).
: > Where do you get your stats LoLalytics. Not sure why they are so different. > This is massively compounded by his super low pick rate - only people who are really good play him. Yep, I can't argue with that. The "Talon effect" definitely influences Skarners winratio positively. > Dont want to sound rude, but how about you get to at least plat 5 (which is still insanely low and easy) with skarner only and then tell me he is strong - judging by your history you havent played him in months. Fair enough. But I don't want to be rude either, but how is possible that you play Skarner so often and on such a high skill level but are completely unaware of Skarners very good base stats? I mean...you can't deny that you are simply factually wrong about his stats. How is it possible that you never noticed that despite your vast experience with him? I suppose we both are not the right persons to judge Skarner. I lack the practical skill and experience, you lack the ability to...idk....whatever ability is required to get to know a champ while playing him.
Skarner has "low" stats because basic stats are not everything. Of course he has high base dmg (hence sheen is core with Q being spamable as well). He doesnt have free armour passive like sejuani or kha invisibility to avoid damage. He doesnt have Maokai passive to keep himself alive or WW insane Q + lifesteal. THAT IS WHY HE DIES QUICKLY. All he has is a W shield which is fairly long CD. Saying he has high base stats just show how little you understand. For example skarner has LOWER base armour than rammus, and rammus has W bonuses on top of that. Shyvana has dragon form bonuses. Basically everyone has bonuses to their base stats, except skarner.
: > His winrate ranges a lot but is generally below 50% That is simply not true. I am sort of a "retired Skarner main", so I follow him quite closely and frequently check on his winratio. And I can assure you that Skarner had a winratio significantly above 50% for at least the last few months. He frequently was among the top 5 junglers. You are absolutely right about his play ratio, but his winratio is absolutely fine. About the question WHY he is rarely played: I suppose it's the old Udyr-sickness: Skarner has no real gapcloser except movementspeed. > He also has lowish stats compared to many other similar tanks/bruisers so he also dies a lot quicker in TFs than other junglers. Tanks and bruisers are not the same. And again, it's simply not true. Skarner has one the highest base AD values, only 5 other champs have more AD than he has. The same applies to his base HP, armor and mres. Skarner has literally some of the best base stats in the game. Check it yourself if you don't believe me: http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_champions/Base_statistics > simply make his pre 6 less insanely bad. He has no gap closer, low CC and low dmg pre 6 I am starting to get the feeling that you don't even play Skarner. You are right about the lack of gapclosers, but pretty much everything else you said is incorrect. Skarner has a very strong slow and spammable stun, he has insane dmg potential considering how tanky he is and thanks to his incredibly clear speed and sustain his early game is not at all weak. > Additionally make him get at least some stats in his "zones" even when they are captured by enemy [...] This will make the game more strategic by allowing skarner players to focus fights around his zones/objectives. That's a contradiction. If Skarner gets stats from chrystals he didn't capture, this makes the game LESS strategic, since fighting for or in those areas is less important now. It would make Skarner stronger, sure, but it would definitely not make his gameplay more strategic, but the opposite.
Where do you get your stats haha. op.gg (https://euw.op.gg/champion/statistics) states that his winrate is 46.3% with 0.7% pick rate in EUW. His diamond winrate globally on https://www.leagueofgraphs.com/champions/stats/euw/diamond/by-winrate is 49.4%. This is massively compounded by his super low pick rate - only people who are really good play him. This means his "true" power is even lower than that. In contrast everyone and their mother play sejuani hence her "true" winrate by experienced players is much higher than the current 53-55%. "I am starting to get the feeling that you don't even play Skarner" - one would assume that you would at least check my profile before making these ridiculous statements. I have 150 skarner games in Diamond 2 and you have 10 games in Gold 5 this season. Dont want to sound rude, but how about you get to at least plat 5 (which is still insanely low and easy) with skarner only and then tell me he is strong - judging by your history you havent played him in months. He was indeed OK around patch 7.10 as I said and this is clearly the last time you played him. He is abysmal currently.
: It seems that pantheon is the only viable top champion now.

: Well what you observe is Riot adding more complex champions with steeper mastery curves. Majority of old champions used to be really simple to play with not much of a skillcap, so Riot is adding more champions where you can express your skill. That of course makes older ones look weaker, just because newer ones have more possibilities, but truth is they just empower player more to affect the game. Side problem is designing such champions is really hard as it takes time and numbers of games to show their true power, thus it can take months or even years until Riot manages to find the actual balance point.
So how is Camiles R is hard to use? There is no skill cap and there is NO COUNTERPLAY. If she is ahead (lets say jungler camps, top laner feeds) then there is nothing we can do to, she presses R and gets the kill. Its not even a skillshot so impossible to dodge.
: -everyone abusing Draven -suddenly Trist broken thread ermm ok?
You have seen a Draven not banned? Draven is even more OP than trist thats why in my games I see him almost always banned. Twitch is also more OP than trist hence banned. There arent enough bans to spend 10 on bot lane so trist gets through and dominates. In general ADC class is OP / broken. If ADC items get put back in-line in terms of gold efficiency trist may become balanced.

If you play that bad what the hell do you expect. I lost games where I went 12-0-12.

Your kill participation is below 50% (4/9) which is VERY low - it means your team actually did decent by getting kills without you. If you got 7-0 then you would probably win. You ignore the fact that this is a post about people going afk/trolling too much,youre plat/dia whatever,good job,you want a cookie?
Trolling is a subjective term. Syndra has 4 kills, WW has 4 kills total. BOTH PARTICIPATED IN THE SAME NUMBER OF KILLS. Therefore if Syndra is "trolling" it means WW (OP) is too. What I said is that the guy clearly didnt do enough to expect to win this game. He needs to play better rather than flame some Syndra on forums.
: I have a little buff idea to Mundo to make him actually usefull in this meta
Mundo jungle is 53% winrate Global. He is fine, any buffs could tip him over the edge.
: I quit ranked,this happens too much in my games.
2/3/2 at gold 5 and you complain? If you play that bad what the hell do you expect. I lost games where I went 12-0-12. If you go anything less than 7-10 kills (or assists) in laning as jungler at such low ELO then you have absolutely no right to complain about anything. Play much, much better and do so consistently and you will go up. Your kill participation is below 50% (4/9) which is VERY low - it means your team actually did decent by getting kills without you.

: Nerf Riven like for real...
Honestly, I am not saying that riven is balanced but there are a large number of champions that need to be nerfed before riven, such as: Kata, Kalista, Irelia (a proper nerf not that joke), hecarim (Homeguards and his E should not stack), Sejuani (proper nerf needed), Sion (still broken as fk), Nidalee (remove heal already, made her kit broken for 4 seasons now) However what Riven really needs is a complete rework, she must get a resource that has some kind of drawback and counterplay to it. Maybe simply give her a rage bar and make that she cannot use her ult until her rage bar is 100%? (like Shyvana)
: It's not Riots design staff in general, it's specifically CertainlyT who was the designer for Kalista's kit. He was also the designer of Yasuo, Zed and Thresh, which are all commonly considered to have terribly designed kits that can't be fixed with simple numerical changes.
Are you serious? The 3 worst designed champions that were released during the 4 years that I play this game were made by the same retarded idiot? Jesus this guy needs to get executed. But it is still Riot's team as a whole to allow such champion into the game.

: Why is there no AP equivalent of Mercurial Scimitar?
Because there is Zhonias obviously, Zhonia + QSS upgrade for AP carries would be way too much.
Hrki (EUNE)
: Teh balunce
Riot balance team are some of the dumbest people to ever walk the earth. I have played this game for 4+ years and the balance only got worse and worse. Now the game in its most unbalanced state that I have ever seen, OP picks win the game with zero counterplay (the only exception was when BOTRK was released or Black Cleaver reworked, but those items got nerfed fast and the game returned to normal).
Zerelous (EUW)
: You have problems with her mobility but not the forever stacking damage on rend?
The damage is something that can be adjusted by numbers , yes of course she deals too much dmg but at least that can be addressed by a simple nerf. Her kit though cannot be "nerfed", it can only be reworked which will not happen any time soon. Its acceptable for the balance team to release a champion with the numbers slightly off and too high, that will always happen because its impossible to 100% test something on PBE. Her kit however is a proof that Riot are mentally disabled. Anyone with IQ above 50 would realize that her kit should never been created just by reading the description. One game vs her on PBE would mean that even everyone below 50IQ would understand that her passive is a TERRIBLE idea.
Rioter Comments
: Katarina Kit Question: Why does she not have a skillshot?
Because if she had skillshots then how could disabled people who do not have fingers get to challenger? This way anyone who has any dysfunction with their hands can use their nose/elbows to get a pentakill. Riot promotes equality.
Andy Ten (EUW)
: Champions that needs to be nerfed in 5.5 or 5.6
You clearly forgot about Kata, she is moronicly broken. Ahri is fine. Irelia is more nerf worthy than riven. I'd much rather see Kalista nerfed than Graves The rest yeah, Nida is just moronic overall (down syndrome design), Vi numbers too high with trinity.
0Nocturnal0 (EUNE)
: Nocturne laning ?
Noc sucks in general. Noc sucks A LOT in lane, in every single lane. His passive + Q will autopush lane if he tries to trade and then he is a free gank due to no escape/gapcloser. He is average duelist at best. He has no real gap closer except ult, Q is extremely obvious and telegraphed. He is squishy.
Buttcramp (EUNE)
: Why is Lissandra banned in rankeds?
I thought thats obvious but.. here we go: - 3 CC spells - Insane clear - Ungankable, which makes her the safest mage in the top lane in the game - Free poke thanks to the passive, insane poke in general - stupid kite potential, being able to CC anything that comes close and she is still ranged AA. This means she destroys most melee champions with ease. Even if someone does jump on her, HUR DUR press E and safe - Ult + Zhonias = almost 4 seconds of invulnerability!! Basically she cannot get caught and she can zone an entire team by herself - OP engage - OP disengage - Good damage, can 1 shot a squishy easily if ahead. If not she can bring them down to 30% or lower so they are a free kill for anyone else in the team
: New rumble ult bug (not smartcast) - anyone else found this issue?
