: Because that's how his passive works. He keeps the jump buff 0.25 seconds when out of a bush.
"While in brush, Rengar leaps at his target with his basic attack." That's what his passive states tho, nowhere is it stated that he can jump from outside a bush.

: To be honest I think it's because she's **_frustrating_** to play against and that's what is affecting the nerfs, that and her top lane performance outshines her mid lane. My comments come from facing her top, I imagine she's not that great mid. This mostly comes from that spammable Q with a 1.5s CD and a slow attached to it, it's also instant cast - it's just incredibly annoying to get smacked with that 3 times in a row every time you go in for a single CS. Honestly I think if they make the Q cooldown to something like 6/5 seconds and REMOVE the slow and then buff her damage on Q & E it'd make her less frustrating to play against since you could actually get CS against her and go in for short trades when she uses her Q. Another champion who has a spammable Q like this: _**Karthus**_, has no slow attached to it and it has a 0.5 second delay - ***ONTOP*** of that you can just charge towards him the moment he starts spamming and he has no mobility to get out. Akali on the other hand will make it back to her fountain in the blink of an eye the moment you take a step in her general direction. The reason Akali now goes top is because she can't deal with the ranged mid laners who harass her so she would rather just go top and bully melee laners with the Q - if they made her deal with the other assassins mid and got rid of the kiting on Q she would go away from top and they can focus on balancing assassin akali in the mid lane.
In that case, the problem is just that she's really poorly designed. In which case Riot should revert her or remove her until they come up with a better rework instead of aimlessly trying to balance her, so they can put work into champions that actually need balancing and have been problematic for several patches now.

: > Is the matchmaker %%%%ed or am I just unlucky? Neither. You played a normal game. In normals, players are matched by their normal-MMR, not their Ranked-MMR. The rank you are seeing is the ranked-rank. The two ratings are separated because firstly, normals shouldn't influence ranked and secondly because peoples skill in those two modes is often vastly different since they don't try hard in normals while they do in ranked. But since the matchmaking obviously can't predict how much people are tryharding in each individual match, that leads to normals being more unbalanced. There isn't really a way around that.
I see, had no idea MMR was different for normals and ranked. Thanks for clarifying!

: Level 1-30 my experience.
I started a new account a few months ago on EUNE to play with a friend and those 3 categories are so damn accurate.
Silent Note (EUNE)
: Why are people in ARURF so much more toxic than people in normals/ranked?
I think it's because the game mode is downright frustrating in most cases. A lot of the times you're stuck with a mediocre URF champ when some guy on enemy team got something like zed, kai'sa, riven, garen etc and there's literally nothing you can do. Makes people frustated.

Killmore (EUNE)
: new URF
lol try playing against kai sa, that shit is disgusting. Blows up anything in a matter of milliseconds and has a shield as big as her entire %%%%ing health bar. I thought zed was broken in URF but kai sa is even worse.
Dostheboss (EUNE)
: Arurf not enjoyable?
It never has been, so many people say they want Draft URF back but Riot obviously never delivers. I don't understand why the can't %%%%ing do both at least?
: People only play this game because they are addicted
The game is only fun when you're relevant in the match and actually feel like you have an impact on the game. For me at least.
: More mastery levels?
If they add new mastery levels they really need to make it more difficult to get. As you mentioned it's so easy to get 6 and 7.
Galtron (EUW)
: WIll there be urf ? or arurf
ARURF is so dogshit. There's always on person who gets something OP like zed or garen and the rest are stuck with shit like illaoi, bard and just champs that can't even come close to competing. I really hope they bring back draft URF.
: Teammates who ban your champion in champ select are the worst.
It's funny cause it's usually the worst performing players who do all these toxic things. Happened to me in my last game, wanted to play zed and my Braum support decides to ban him. Now I understand that maybe he doesn't want to play vs Zed but I was first pick so that's not an excuse. He ended up completely useless, not doing anything the whole game and I had to carry it. I just don't understand the mentality :/
fRoyGe (EUNE)
: Top or mid ?
Top has some very strong pics right now, like Irelia, Aatrox and Sion. Mid can have a lot more impact tho, WHEN PLAYED RIGHT. You're in the middle of the map so you have easy access to both top and bot lane for ganks. I'd suggest mid cause it's easier to learn than top imo, also Akali is stupid strong and Irelia can also be played mid so you have some strong picks there too.
: Client is completely broken at this point
I'm a mac user and the client is an absolute nightmare to use. I have to start it anywhere from 2-5 times to get it to work right every time I want to play. Bugs include: - Trying to reconnect indefinitely even though my internet connection works fine - Client only partially loading (friends list not open, if I click on profile nothing loads etc etc.) - Play button being black - When clash was around it would take nearly an hour to set up a lobby - Sometimes when I try to open it the icon pops up but the client itself won't open and I have to close it through task manager and restart the pc Riot has completely lost my faith as a customer, I have decided not to purchase ANYTHING with money until they decide to fix their damn game, not only the bugs and completely not ready releases but also gameplay-wise (won't go into details since it's not the topic of the thread) and I think others should do the same.
: Kai'Sa should never have been allowed to exist.
Riot desperately trying to pump out new content without it ever being even close to ready for live servers. It seems to be quite the recurring event recently. Zoe was cancer on release, Camille with her awesome 1k+ true dmg AA, Clash game mode, Ardent meta, Kai'Sa, nexus blitz should be renamed to bugs and glitches, and now even odyssey isn't working right. The game needs a hard reset and huge changed across the board. Everything does way too much damage, you can get shields that are literally bigger than your health bar, unkillable tanks that can just walk through your entire team without dieing. And of course the prior mentioned game modes that just don't work. Great company Riot Games. {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}}
: Question: Do you still have fun playing League ?
Short answer: Ranked, no. Normals with friends yes. Ranked has made me want to quit recently cause I was trying to climb by playing Zed mid. Was consistently destroying my lane, started with 65%+ winrate on him, it's now at 53% cause I stopped playing him ( would go down further if I kept trying). I just couldn't carry from mid, no matter how fed I got cause there was always that one idiot that fed and solo threw the game. I switched to top lane spamming GP (when I had easy lanes) and Garen and started climbing at the speed of light, it made me stop playing ranked cause it didn't feel rewarding at all. Why bother playing a champion like Zed where I actually have to think when I can play brainless champions like Garen and get much better results? I might start playing ranked again once they introduce the new system. Until then I will continue playing normals with my 3+ premade teams where I can %%%% around with no consequences. (I don't mean trolling and inting).
: Yasuo is a very toxic champion, the same guy who made him made Zoe, another champ well known for being _really fun to play against_. However, while he is extremely annoying to play against (this is coming from someone who used to play him religiously) he has some pretty strong counter picks. Fiora can destroy him, a good Riven will turn his asshole inside out, Darius is pretty strong against him, even Nasus can annihilate him provided he doesn't feed in the first 10 mins, Jax is another strong counter pick. Basically what you need to do with Yasuo is just completely shut him down early game. That being said, he's AIDS turned into a LoL character and I'd be happy to see him removed.
I commented on this cause it showed up in the "recent" tab, just now seeing it's a year old post lol

: But the effect is the same... doesn’t matter how long it lasts fizz gets to tower dive, kill and get out without worry because he can drop tower aggro... same as akali all her shroud does is let her drop aggro in reality her tower dive prowess is no more if not lower than fizz’s (much lower burst)
Except fizz often needs his E to kill the enemy, so it won't always be available to drop tower aggro and jump out.
: She might be untargetable for a long time but she needs a long time to kill without being fed... she has to be constantly moving around and using her passive which would be impossible without the shroud. It lets her actually function as a champion and isn’t too hard to play around. She also has to leave the shroud in order for it to last longer, s she has to be outside of its range aka vunerable for the full duration.
She leaves it for 1 second at most, doesn't give champions who are AA reliant, or targeted ability reliant many options. Let her keep the shroud, as you said, she needs it. I just think it's very annoying to deal with as it is. Here's how I would change it, first off being un-targetable by towers is stupid, so remove that. Then I think there should be a small delay before her invisibility triggers every time she moves in and out of the shroud. Maybe 0.75 seconds or something. That would give people time to react to her new positions and maybe be able to retaliate. I was playing Darius and I simply could not auto attack her, her stealth kept resetting my AA animation. The windows of opportunity are simply too small. I have no problem with her having a shroud, just give us more options to play around it since stealth is an insanely powerful ability in LoL.
: Or you can just walk away and she has to leave her shroud to kill you. And frankly how much different is it than old akali... besides towers it basically works in the same way as before, and the tower diving is no different to Elise or fizz. Your making a fuss over something akali has always had, but now she actually requires skill and has counter play... plus her mobility is much lower
Yes it's something she's always had but that doesn't make it a good thing. I think the rework was overall good, just her shroud needs some changes, she's untargetable for too long is all.
Gabresol (EUW)
: oh no! She can now hide from turrets while not attacking me! This is so much worse than her dashing onto me, q me, dash after my flash under the t2, helas up the turrets shots she took from t1 AND t2 and uses her shroud to blink out of the turet range, while STILL having dashes ready.
Everyone's commenting as if I'm implying that old akali is better. Literally nowhere in this post is that even referenced. Overall, the rework was very solid, she's far less cancerous than she was. I just think her shroud needs some changes and she'd be perfect.
Ceberuz (EUW)
: I am actually greatful for this rework, now it no longer feels like a hard diving assassin with built-in Soraka sustain on every single AA or ability, and you have the ability to fight back in 1v1 instead of just being deleted on anything short of a tank.
I completely agree that she is much healthier to the game than she was before, I just think her shroud needs some tweaking.

: katarina isnt that strong in this patch she is on the weak side . and as zed u should beat her easily
That is the least helpful comment I have ever read tbh. I'm looking for advice, if you have nothing constructive to say please don't bother. Thanks.
: From someone that once played a lot of Katarina... I find Zed one hell of a scary matchup, just get yourself Hexdrinker and you invert everything, now she's the one that has to play really carefully... Her cooldowns early game are also kinda big, 10+ in order for her to do a good combo on u, so as soon you see that she wastes a rotation on you, you can use that in order to punish her After 6, if you get yourself some lethality, as zed you just need to R and hit your Qs, katarina wont be building much health early game, so even if she has armor, she wont be able to stop an entire combo of zed Yasuo doesnt really suck btw :P At least i dont think so, the full build is just 300$ more expensive (talking about PD, IE, BT) But yeah, it kinda sucks because before they nerfed the items, you could play laning phase a lot more safe (imo, against hard matchups, {{item:1054}} {{item:1054}} {{item:1042}} x3) was my go to, and i tought that was amazing, but now if you do that you will see how hard it seems to get gold xD But im not a Yasuo Expert anyway so, i guess ur right, that's why he might be getting buffs ^_^ yey
Well Yasuo has a very low win rate right now. His items themselves are not particularly more expensive but if you look at what he gets early to mid game you will see how hard he got nerfed. Zeal now only gives him 30% crit instead of 40% for 100 gold more, if you are playing aggressive zeal is the first item you buy on your back, that's already a nerf to his first back. Second you can't hit your PD + BF + Cloak of Agility power spike anymore since Cloak of Agility doesn't build into IE anymore. You have to wait until you complete IE to get 100% crit, which is also more expensive now. This patch just made him reach his power spike way too late into the game to have a meaningful impact on the game. Thanks for the tips on Kat, I usually play greedy and go lethality first back then go hexdrinker, which is kind of silly now that I think about it.{{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}}
: Winning a game in season 8 is 100% Luck
Bot lane is a super volatile lane (i think thats the right word) and if you snowball with a snowbally champion like lucian, draven etc you can carry the game IF YOU ARE EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD. I emphasize the being good because as others have said adcs are heavily reliant on their team which makes solo carry potential much more difficult. It's a lot easier to solo carry as a Katarina mid who has 5 kills by 10 mins, or a fed Yi, Jax, Irelia, Zed etc etc. That being said, I agree with you. You can hardly control the game when your mid laner feeds 5 kills in 5 mins, or your top laner gets camped out of his own lane. Champs snowball out of control way to fast, everything gets percent health dmg, true dmg and executes etc. The game is honestly in a terrible state. I hope you can make sense of this mess of a rant, I'm way too tired to figure out how to order my points lol.

I don't think Riot gives 2 shits about their player base tbh. I mean they have no idea how to balance their game and let inters roam free doing whatever they like while people get banned for ridiculous stuff like this.

: This community is SO goddamn pessimistic
LOL was just about to write something similar myself. Was just in a game as GP vs the new swain (never played against it) and I got %%%%ed hard. Our Karma support keeps giving me shit for it the entire game and in the post game lobby. Cause they never have a bad game ey? No they play perfectly every single game without making a single mistake.... I get it's frustrating to lose because of someone else's mistakes but it's pretty much a given that everyone has been dead weight at some point. So instead of being so negative I don't understand why people can't give constructive advice instead. This community is one of the worst I have ever seen to be honest.
