: Buff tanks
Not seeing a downside here tbh
: When a single effect makes 20% of the champion roster irrelevant
So it's fair to go 0/5 in lane as Riven, Tryndamere, Yasuo, or Fiora then buy one and a half items and all of a sudden you can kill any champion in the game with 3 autos and two thirds of an ability, but it's not fair for a person playing a champion with clear strengths and weaknesses to heal for an itty bitty 40% of their health because their opposing team was stupid enough not to chain CC then instaburst them? A behind healing based champion is worthless, whereas it doesn't matter how brain dead you are, you can play the above champions, feed 10 kills then carry the game just because. I got fed as Aatrox/Vladimir/Yorick or even god damn Cho Gath through outplaying my opponent. I earned my lead. Every heal oriented champion, with the slight exception of Mundo is balanced around the fact that they can heal for incredible amounts. And even in the case of Mundo, the heal is over 12 seconds. That's a long time and with so many % health items and champions in the game, bursting him is not that difficult. Try buying BoRK or Liandry's, grab some popcorn and watch that health bar drop. Because I have fought so many trash players that pick Yasuo, Riven, Lee Sin, Gangplank or Fiora, over time I have learned that the players who pick those champions, regardless of actual skill level are so garbage that they have to pick champions that play the game for them. Champions that can make more mistakes than any other champion and not get punished for it. Believe it or not, even Mundo has to worry about his positioning. Vladimir is manaless, and that locks him out of a significant amount of items that give him armour and magic resist, ability power and even cool down reduction. He realistically can only build health and ability power to maximise the value from his passive. This makes him extremely squishy to % health damage. Even doubling up on Zhonya's and his W, 4 seconds of relative invulnerability, also means he can't heal off anything but his ult. Oh also, Vladimir has no fucking mobility. Letting a Vladimir farm when you are probably playing Lee Sin jungle like 68% of the playerbase is a clear mistake, and you will pay for it late game. And you should be punished, instead of being able to take the easy way out and buy broken items to make him heal about as fast as a Draven with 2 Rabadons, Luden's Echo, Guinsoos and a Gunblade. Mundo is ridiculously squishy early game, even post 6/pre 11. If you are playing a ranged harasser like Gangplank or a champion with stupid amounts of damage coupled with blatantly unfun mobility like Riven or Fiora and you have not shoved him out of reliable farming 8 times by 6 minutes, then you should consider maybe switching to a more casual game. All he has going for him is farming from range with his Q. Again, zero mobility. Junglers should punish him for even stepping a Darius auto out of position. A 2/11 Mundo late game is as tanky as AP Leona. Additionally, DON'T TRY TO FIGHT HIM 1V1 33 MINUTES INTO THE GAME? ??? ? Aatrox is garbage in almost all matchups. Until he gets 4 no-no bars. If you try to fight then die to a Hellbent Aatrox, it is your own fault. But an Aatrox without Hellbent has about the same dueling power as a Karthus with attack speed runes that started W. This is assuming a 1v1 situation. Aatrox is a champion that quite literally cannot teamfight unless he is 63/0. Even then, if he is not auto attacking, he is not healing. Simple as that. Burst or CC will drop that health bar in exactly 1.36 seconds. Exactly the same as a fed Yi. Being able to shut down a specialised duelist/skirmisher/split pusher with an 800 gold item, but then Riven players can just press 4 buttons to drop your health by 60% then do it again in another 8 seconds because you missclicked to within 500 range of a melee minion, that's not fun. Aatrox is weak and pathetic without his passive ready, so fight him when it is down. THAT IS A CLEAR WEAKNESS, and can be exploited by simply not being bad at V I D E O G A M E S. Yorick doesn't even heal for that much, but it is still a significant portion of his kit. Yorick is what a Juggernaught/Fighter should look like. A champion that does stupid damage, but only if you let him near you. And the only thing he has is a trap that can be escaped by 60% of the roster with one button, a 30% slow and 20% boosted movement speed. That's it. He can't go from tower to tower in two skill rotations in less than 14 seconds like some champions, and is extremely vulnerable to kiting. I know a lot of people will disagree with me, but I truly believe Cho Gath takes more skill than Riven. Not mechanical skill obviously, but positioning and map awareness. He has absolutely zero mobility, and not being aware of your surroundings, and being stuck too far up in lane, then getting ganked by a 3/0 Lee Sin that flash kicks you into the 0/4 Fiora under tower, you have no way out. You can't press 4 buttons then be in the clear like Riven, you can't just E through the incoming wave as Yasuo, you are stuck there to contemplate the meaning of life as Fiora's 17% max health true damage every second shreds you. You counter Cho Gath by bursting that giant hp bar. If you half ass it, he is just going to heal right back up with his passive. That is a clear strength. And a competent player can play around it. He is tagged as a tank for a reason. Buying Grievous Wounds of any kind automatically says to me that you are incapable of adapting to and capitalising on a champions weaknesses. Every single heal oriented champion has clear weaknesses, usually their laning phase vulnerability.

The new client takes up too much of my screen. It looks good though.
: who beats rework fiora late game 1v1
PERCENTAGE MAXIMUM HEALTH TRUE DAMAGE IS BALANCED AND FAIR. Fiora is called the grand duelist for a reason. Never fight her alone or without heavy CC. I hate Fiora and everyone who plays her. She is one of four champions that have far fewer weaknesses than every other champion of the League.
: who counters kled??
How to counter Kled? Don't die to him. He is more useless than Aatrox in late game teamfights short of a speed boost. Any effective peel nullifies everything he is made to do. Not to mention being deceptively squishy despite having two health bars. Kled only becomes a problem if you feed him 5 kills before 20 minutes. Otherwise, he is a splitpusher, skirmisher and duelist at best. Sure he can drop your squishies 100 to 0 with just a Black Cleaver, but he has to get to said squishies to do so. Kled is actually pretty weak when compared to other fighters, all aspects considered.

English dude, English. If you leave a game it is your fault and your fault alone. The reasons why are irrelevant.
: Yasuo discussion
I believe that all people who commonly play champions such as Fiora, Yasuo, Riven and Lee Sin are usually playing them for the same reason; because they are brain dead easy to play, and not many people know how to counter them properly. The easiest counter to them, is not dying to them. That said, simply sitting under tower for the first 15 minutes of a game just because the enemy champion can 100 - 0 you with a Dorans Blade and a couple item ingredients is incredibly counter intuitive. Every other champion in the game has glaringly obvious strengths, weaknesses and counter play. Up against Xerath or Ziggs? Dodge skill shots and take advantage of their low mobility. Up against Renekton or Darius? Stay away from them, and farm while their abilities are on cool down. Up against Nasus or Tryndamere? Take advantage of their weak early game and try to kill them before they become strong. Up against Yasuo, Fiora, Riven or Lee Sin? Might as well just play a different game for 20 minutes because you sure as hell aren't gonna have any fun whatsoever in this lane. They are stronger than other champions simply because they have fewer weaknesses.

: Sion's passive vs Kled's passive
Pretty ridiculous to be honest. I did know Kled's passive already, but I just read it in different words so your post confused me until about 18 seconds after I posted. Boy I look stupid.
: Sion's passive vs Kled's passive
It's unfair to Sion players to be honest. Sure Sion can keep a person from not moving for 5 seconds but he actually has to make an effort to hit his ultimate ability. Kled quite literally has a better version of Sion's ult, only downside being that you can't pick who you want to engage on. I didn't even know about the health gain passive on Kled, that's actually kind of dumb. Sure hope they buff up Sion's beefyness to compensate for having a champion that is better in terms of innate tankyness.
: Wow... Its laughable how 'loyal' people are to Azir.
I still play Sion in ranked religiously even though every common pick has some form of mobility on a 3 sec cd. I have played him consistently since his rework. I also agree that %health true damage is actually disgusting. In one game, I had about 7.5k hp, and in the final team fight that secured our victory, according to the death recap, Vayne did over 3000 true damage to me. It's not the damage that bothers me, it's the fact that there is no way to counter build it.
: Hextech Crafting is too generous.
I do agree that the chances of getting a high end skin are a bit too high to be honest.

: The champ that tilts you the most?
Fiora. While I hate going against Riven and Teemo, they actually have counterplay and you can play safe against them. If you play safe and build resistances early, assuming you didn't die to them, you're safe. But Fiora? Nooo. Armour does very little, and health does even worse. So for the next 15 minutes you can do nothing but watch the minions whack each other while cowering at the tip of the maximum exp range. Fiora is the epitome of anti-fun.
: Family Problem thingy
: Tank Nerfs
Tank Sion main here, the tanks aren't the problem, it's your team not peeling them. I can't tell you how many times I have landed a fully charged Decimating Smash on 3 or more people because their frontline was busy 2v4ing. The frontline is shredded before the stun even wears off, creating a 5v3. If I was CC'd, that wouldn't happen. Same goes for Ekko, only a little easier to kill and harder to hit.

You're seriously complaining about drop rates? Here's the thing EDIT: Whoops hit post before I was done, thanks mobile Anyway this is a way to get free skins in a free to play game. If it didn't take forever to earn these things you wouldn't be encouraged to pay for RP. Rito is a business, not a charity.
: Permanent bans not very effective on free to play games.
You raise a good point lads. I also think that reports should have different levels of value, because as Mickey Knox said, a tumblr kid who reports someone for using the wrong 'their' that reports at least one person every game should not make the same amount of difference as a person like me that really only reports someone once every maybe 20 games. And I agree with what JHAEL and SoftHardcore11 said as well. Instead of banning people outright, just segregate them from the non-toxic players. A little personal queue that forces players to be healthy additions to the league community. I sure as hell would try to get out of that queue as soon as possible if I was put into it. Playing with toxicity is not fun, and permabans simply do not fix that.

: Level 5 Champs
65k on Sion 32k on Nasus Next highest is Tryndamere, Darius and Aatrox at mid/high level 4. I pretty much exclusively play Sion jungle/top in ranked, and usually Aatrox/Tryndamere in top lane nowadays.
: kill me now riot i have committed a sin
I did worse. Assisted in giving a Teemo a penta as Skarner. Pulled their adc back for him to get the penta. EDIT: I didn't even try to steal it either
: Top Laners?
Sion is a safe pick, easy to learn difficult to master. Also Garen, as soon as you learn to Q E you've mastered him. Pick Fiora if you want to make your lane opponent commit sudoku because of how easy she is to steamroll with.
: I would love to know why Jax hasn't been gutted yet.
Stupid champion and I hate going up against Jax as well, but even so, you counter him by not dying to him. Are you low on health? Back. Simply either roam or attempt to sustain through his absurd damage. Build against him, even if you don't want to. Though he does ridiculously mixed damage so that part is hard. In other words... Do not feed him.
: Build tank or not worth anymore?
Very few tanks can come back from being pushed behind. Because you will still get shredded. Late game, you will still get shredded because % penetration is stupid. That said, if you are taking the hits instead of your damage dealers, you're doing your job.
: *cough* *cough* got low priority queue for internet issues :/
You disconnected, ruining a game for 4 other people. Whether it is your fault or not is irrelevant.
: DARIUS TROUBLES
If he starts up a Q early, you can walk towards him instead of away to get hit with the handle. If he is stupid enough to aa you a few times, he will take some damage from your minions as well as you if you turn on him while he is getting hit by minions. Of course it depends on machup though. Darius will always be a lane bully, just like Renekton. Both can be countered by staying away and praying that they don't freeze the lane so you cqn farm undor tower. Often times if I am playing a weak early game champion like Nasus or Tryndamere, I will take the Bounty mastery just to get some gold income while I am out of melee range.
: Aatrox Build Path + Item Concept
Like I stated. It's an item CONCEPT. The numbers are too high/too low because I didn't really do too much math on the offensive buffs. Either way, good feedback. Glad I'm not the only Aatrox player who sees his problem.
: An item like that would be too strong, ad carries and basically any other champ who relies on ad would jump on that, imagine this on a {{champion:67}} , or {{champion:202}} now.

First off, it is the second most expensive item in the game, and it does not give all stats that an adc would enjoy having. I can only see this being used on Vayne, but still, the passive would be next to useless because an adc would never itemise for health except for maybe a 5th item. It gives decent lifesteal and attack damage yes, but only 55 as opposed to an infinity edge or an essence reaver, both of which give all stats that an adc would find use for. I can see your concern, but no smart adc would buy this as a first or second item except for Vayne.

If you take Winspeaker's Blessing on Teemo, 2. then buy no items, 3. kill 1 small Raptor, 4. recall to base, 5. buy Rejuvenation Bead and a vision ward, 6. and then die to dragon.

: Is Skill in Video games Natural, or Acquired?
I'd say both. If a 40 year old man were to pick up a PS4 controller and try to play Bloodborne, he'd try for 9 hours just to get to the first boss. But an 18 year old kid would eventually learn the mechanics of the game. Eventually. If anyone plays Bloodborne, you know what I'm talking about. Also, Orphan of Kos is best boss.
: Frozen heart and riven fast combo?
Frozen Heart would slow her auto attack animation slightly, so yes it would be affected even though it resets her AA timer.
: Did riot break the game with the changes to Graves
Its absolutely rediculous. He can actually duel about every aa based bruiser melee champ that WAS designed to counter adc's. The fact that a Tryndamere with 340 AD, 100% crit strike has to actually blow summoners AND ult even when Graves was caught out is an obvious sign that this champion needs a serious nerf. Although, I will admit the idea of Graves having an actual shotgun is awesome.
