Bruce Lee sin
Wow, what is this?
I kind of hope they don't completely scrap him, he looks kinda of awesome and we need another void champion.
Apparently he's "shelved" but I highly doubt he's going to be released.
why can't people decide what to buy themselves?
They scrapped him/it because he/it didn't fit the aesthetic of a generic AD carry.
In other words: "Can dipshit people who's IQ is below 60 recognize this as an AD carry? No? 'Kay let's scrap him."
In other words:
Well, I've played 4/10 of the free week champions so far; Graves, Nunu, Shaco, and Sion.
I liked Nunu and Graves a whole bunch; It seems with Nunu I can easily kill someone but still be quite tanky. I got ~4 kills early game with a combination of some harass, ice blast, and then blood boil to catch up to them and kill them (and the sustain, my god the sustain.)
With Graves, I didn't get a full 'whatthefuck-pwned' build, but I can see how he can destroy. I was already knocking people's health down insanely fast with a combination of quickdraw, smokescreen, and then buckshot (and then some autoattacks, of course.) His collateral damage doesn't feel quite like a 'ultimate' to me, though. I mean, it has ultimate damage but it isn't his signature skill, I feel, or something like that. It isn't his main damage dealer (to be fair, most ults aren't but eh)
Shaco was fun and his skills were amusing, but by god he was squishy. I don't think I built him very well, either. I can see how he would be very effective as a jungler, though.
I built Sion as an AP champ and he was fairly effective with his Q and W. He's an odd character; a combination of a possible AD/AP/tank champ that seems flexible as hell. His spells weren't super nukey, though. I can see how he would be good support.
Also, I just realized how odd/funny the champions are in this game. I mean, Cho'Gath is a goddamn creature that is apparently some general of the void, a creature ancient and terrible, possibly commanding a vast army of the void... and he can be killed by some random dude with a big gun, or some random blue midget with a big gun.
About half of the ranged ad champs use guns or bows, other weapons range from a magic glove, vomiting on enemies, throwing cards and spears and other shit.
I wouldn't have minded at all if he did get in.
This game is power creeping a lot. Eve and xin and heimer etc just get worse and worse.
More straight up buffs to Annie.
and i can't tell if ryze changes are buffs or not
talon buffs are weird as hell, might wanna start maxing q or something
Do you guys remember this?
A lot of people guessed correctly that Skarner was going to be a new champion but there were still doubts.
even so i reaaaaally doubt it's real, they already nerfed the mana costs twice or something, doubt they would make such a huge change to it all of a sudden
really like the patch notes, the haunting guise buff is nice.
pls buff xin riot
They need to nerf his early game, and then buff his lategame.
The reason he stomps pre-30s is because of his grossly strong early game level 2-3 combo, which can outright kill a bad player. But even if Xin gets fed, he still can't do much since he has no scaling in a scenario when all players are decent, but pre-30s, teamfights rarely happen and xin can just build full DPS and not care.
ANY champion with infinity edge and phantom dancer in a reasonable timeframe is very scary if both teams don't teamfight and just let people get caught, which is what happens at lower levels.
E needs to get AD scaling, but level 2-4 damage needs a reduction to compensate.
Q should scale off of total AD, making his attacks do 115-150% of his AD (not completely sure on numbers, but definitely is weaker early game), which would make his early game weaker, but will scale into lategame. If not that, then slightly up the later level damages, and make it go on cooldown the second it is activated, and reduce the duration of it's active, so that it can synergize with W and can be used more as an onhit ability, like other bruisers with low-cd onhits.
W is pretty much fine, although it could do with an extra second. R needs a faster cast time and change it to 20% of current hp, it barely does damage lategame, mundos cleavers can do just under the damage.
This makes it so Xin can't terror bad players' lanes early game as easily, but can still scale into lategame whether you build him bruiser or assassin.
Some Rioters said buffing Xin is on the radar but it's not top priority.
Our Fizz disconnected 5 minutes in, Ryze after another 10. Us 3 carried the game, destroyed all their inner towers, grabbed Baron, all the good stuff. But we just couldn't hold out long enough.
Also, 2nd game with Warwick.
yeah that's what i meant, flub said you might wanna start maxing q instead which confused me
have I mentioned how much I love playing Olaf?
Love the beta Yi changes, would make jungling him a bit more reliable and not too luck based.
Squishies: and i can say i fuck your mother
papatulus: no you can't
Squishies: in the ass
Squishies: every day
Squishies: and i kick your father in the face
Squishies: while i rip open her asshole
Shen ult isn't getting nerfed so he's still going to be banned every game
I'd like to know what they plan on doing about the team that has shen being always 1 man up in every fight, meaning if you're up against a shen you've got to play like a pussy because if you try and go in on someone they'll suddenly gain a 600 shield and you'll be taunted and killed
He was also difficult to distinguish between champions and other NPCs, which is a problem that they had with skarner as well. Heck maybe his abilities just doubled up with other abilities that champions had (Riot tend to do doubling up but they're probably just more aware of it with Omen if that were the case).
