: Liandries Torment is not even good for assassins, Abyssal Scepter is because of how the items work, magic pen is catered to killing tanks currently and flat pen got changed awhile back to apply AFTER % pen so they stack together
-____- Let me dumb the post down a little more... change the word "Magic Penetration" to "Potency". No gameplay change, nothing linked to assassins, just the word "Magic Penetration" so it matches the term "Lethality" unless of course "Armor Pen" still exists in the game for the purpose of {{item:3035}}
: ? It works better than intended, pbe is more strict. If someone is toxic they arent going to care about whether the report system works or not. People are always going to write off pbe because no one takes it as seriously.
Riot needs to not let more people in the PBE that even have a hint of constant toxicity on LIVE. I can't even take testing seriously in a game in the PBE anymore because before I even get a chance to test, someone's already ruined the game by trolling, feeding, or/and afking. I just end up doing all bots custom game. It burns me when someone use "Its PBE lol" as an excuse. Like get kicked out RITO pls!!!
: most MR doesn't have a per level value
The point of the post is just both the "penetration" names match.

: [League client update] Testing loot, clubs and (soon) ranked! (Updated 9/7/2016)
: [BUG] Alpha client - Draft pick.
I think there are variations of this visual bug, because last week (after waiting on a 30 min queue) I saw like as if the visuals were flashing on and off, half gold box, missing portraits, missing assets in general, especially banning phase, A LOT of bugs there. It all looks visual though. [Edit] 9:25 AM Ok so I just got into a draft game for testing purposes, the "hextech wheel" is completely missing - the one that shows who's turn it is, pick SFX are missing, Gold boxes (like pictured above) every ban, and sometimes when picking a champion to play.
: >[[League client update]](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/client-new-features-feedback/HRnvZ8mU-league-client-update-twisted-treeline-testing-now-available-updated-july-12th): >**UPDATE: 4 May 2016:** We've disabled the animation from ready check to champion select while we work on increasing the performance of it -- we hope to have it re-enabled later in the alpha. They probably haven't solved this yet. It wasn't as smooth as it should as far as I remember.
Thx, now other people are going to see this! {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}

: _ Its a limited-access public League of Legends realm_. So its not fair if someone joins our community but do not try to develop it.
It's actually concerning to be honest, ever since riot opened the PBE servers to more players, there has been an increase in toxicity as well. There's more: "It doesn't even matter, its just the pbe." -proceeds to feed/ doesn't even try Toxicity- name calling, hate speech *there was barely any toxicity when i got in the pbe ( soraka update/ pre-rift update) My opinion, you don't deserve to be in the pbe if you have any form of consistent/major negative attitude in your live account. Everyone forgets that being in the pbe is a privilege. I never got chat restricted, or any of that sort even once ( at least that I can recall, I'g guilty leaver buster tho :P once because of some troll in queue) Anyway, I feel like I got my account as a reward for being a good player and I feel only good players should only be able to be _granted_ pbe accounts. Keep the PBE clean kids :) {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}

But it is also not fair for players to support ALL the time, especially when matchmaking doesn't even take into account your primary role.

Which also brings a new problem. People who know how to play support are always forced to support if they have picked it in matchmaking, resulting them eventually being tired of the lane all together and some even giving up and moving to try to learn other lanes. RESULTING IN A LOOP OF SHORTAGES IN THE PLAYER POOL. > > Have you even wondered why some solo games take longer to matchmake? Its because were so low on supports that other lanes/roles are affected in the time it takes to form champion select. Sadly the answer is - don't pick support if you are not willing to play support. There are two choices - first choice is **force** people play support (like the old system) or the second choice - make others **wait** for someone willing to play support (the retired Teambuilder system). The new system is a hybrid - it fills games with **approximately** desirable roles, but forces you to select secondary role, so that the queue times don't get too long. The reason they make you play secondary is the same as the reason why they don't let you just pick one role - it makes queue times shorter. Imagine scenario - there are 100 people in line waiting to play MID while there are only 3 people waiting in line to play support. You select MID/SUPPORT. The algorithm would probably give you mid if there were only 10 people waiting in line for MID, but it sees that there are 73 games waiting for a support so it selects you as the support. Maybe the algorithm can be tuned to prefer primary role a bit more, but it will only make queue times longer for those who are not supporting! The underlying problem is shortage of supports and this system tries to find a balance between forcing people to support(or what ever role has shortage) and making them wait long time.
Again, we know that's the problem, so why doesn't just RIOT make something that makes support more appealing? Rewards? Buffs? Something like the MYMU? Something?!
: I find support to be a fun role when my adc isn't a dick. The issue with forcing them to play a champion with the support tag is that it punishes players for playing off meta supports and riot has said multiple times that while they design with the meta in mind they will never actively enforce a meta. The extra rewards should be reserved for those who queue as support primary rather than fill into support. More problems will be solved that way if it actually works with more people queueing up as support the demand for supports should stabilize which would increase the number of alternative roles that comes through for dedicated fillers. I'm not saying you will get mid every time you fill but you will at least get top and jung more frequently instead of just support.
That's what I meant, reserve the bonus LP or IP to those who queued for support with a support "tag" to make it feel more rewarding. If riot doesn't want to enforce the meta support that's fine but enforcing the "tag with role" just prevents trolls from stealing the bonus LP or IP in champion select. Think of someone queueing for support only for the bonus but doesn't actually want it and forces it on someone else that didn't queue for it and still get the reward if they won. Wouldn't that feel wrong? The tag is just there or maybe riot wants to make a list of champions that are taken support bot lane have a bonus when played support. Just to prevent someone from stealing the role and bonus. But it can't be just "oh support role has a bonus ill queue for that" *gets in champ select* "Oh jk, i don't want to support anymore someone else take support" and still gets the bonus. It wouldn't feel right it. People would 'cheat' the system.
: I have a suggestion for those of you who doesnt want to play support. Many of you might have tried this but I post this for that people who haven't. It works for me 95% of the times. I main Ad Carry and Supp, but I usually prefer to go adc, so whenever I want to go adc and i don't want to select any other role, I choose a role like Top or Mid that are the most selected roles (never select fill because fill = supp ^^). For example: I select : ADC / TOP and I get ADC. If I want "support", I just select support and i get it 100% of the times XD. I think this only works well with adc because it isnt a frequently selected role. It might work with JG and Top or MId but I haven't tried that. I hope you find it usefull. EspinaX {{champion:202}}
I mentioned that above. I'm doing that with Mid/Top forcing me and other people in the community to learn another lane I don't really like just to play my role that I like better. Honestly its unhealthy for the community to try and "CHEAT" the matchmaking system. And its not good for riot's reputation to let this happen.
: So what is your suggestion to fix the problem? If you make the chances 50/50 for role selection, queue times would be soooo much longer just due to shortage of supports hence why this issue is brought up to begin with. Only thing I can think of is if suddenly the population of supports rose. But supporting is too boring for that to happen. :D
Well that's the problem, there's an infinite loop now that support doesn't feel as rewarding now. People are forced and get tired of it so they move to other roles. Its bad enough we already have a shortage, but its getting worse.
: Very few people want to play support it is the least popular role by a significant margin. So until that changes the algorithm behind matchmaking is just going to make you play support almost every-time if you select it as secondary or choose fill. There is nothing riot can do to the algorithm to fix the problem that won't cause queue times to skyrocket. The only way for this problem to be solved is to make support a more popular role. Riot could incentivize the role by giving everyone who picks support as primary double IP or lowering the chest score threshold to an A for supports or in ranked you get extra LP if you queued support primary and subsequently lose less in a loss. There are a lot of incentives that they could add to the game to make support more appealing.
Honestly after the Mage update, they should work on the supports. There needs to be changes where support is more exciting to play and more rewarding as well in game or out of game. Out of game, if someone fills a support with a support champion "tag", they should get bonus LP or IP for playing that role if they win or less LP lost because the team can't carry themselves. I say support 'tag' to avoid lane swaps in champ select if someone doesn't get the role because we don't want someone butting in and stealing someone else's role because its more rewarding in LP. And it should only work in 1-4 premade. Didn't include 5 because everyone can go mid for all matchmaking cares.
: The simple truth is that there is a real shortage on supports, and if there suddenly appears a person willing to play support, the algorithm selects that person as support for a game that has long been waiting for one!
Yes. thats what im going at, we know there's a shortage of supports. But it is also not fair for players to support ALL the time, especially when matchmaking doesn't even take into account your primary role. Currently I'm transitioning from Mid/Supp main to Mid/Top because im tired of supporting also given the fact that its not rewarding as a support when your team isn't doing well in their own lanes and you are just sitting there trying to help your own struggling adc.

: Played 3 games, Team Builder lobby was fine, nobody crashed. Other people also said the new champ select seems to work now. After the games the post-game-lobby crashed 2 out of 3 times, but the champ select itself seems to work fine now.
Client just crashed on me after end of game, not technically crash but it was still at "game in progress" and i couldn't press the [x] in the corner to close it
: Just a comment, just got kicked from champion selection for not selecting a champion (when I did). Weird. {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}}
did you lock in tho? You have to click the "lock in" button or else it kicks you out.
: If you're DJ Sona, you don't get to see a music tab etc; it's on by default (which you say is not working). Did you manage to recreate in another Draft game, or in a custom?
Not in a custom, but all other games ever since all the modes were disabled, The music wasn't on by default nor was i able to find an option under sound in the settings

: Mordekaiser Change Summary & Feedback Thread
I'm not saying I like his rework, but I'm also not saying I hate his rework. His Q needs a little but more window in between auto-attacks. If he gets stunned or slowed he wont even have the chance to prock a single q on another champion while they get to do all their damage. I.E. Irelia stun, riven Q's and stun, etc. Again +10 movement speed buff could be good for him. But what Items should I get on him now... I tried the recommended items, they work great on him. Rylai's is essential on him. A phage works with him too, I also found [Boot Enchantment: Furor] work good on him to stick on his Q's. Attack Speed Can come from Triforce, and I also tried BORK. The active was useful and allows him to prock all his Q's also. My only problem is his W feels pretty useless now when he's all alone in a lane. The items I mentioned earlier will only let him stick to his target for so long. What about an Ahri charm? Land those she can just walk away, as well as all other escaped. He can stick well to his target with those items but they can still easily escape from him. Supports for him? Thresh and Leona cames to mind. I played with a Thresh against a Bard/Mordekaiser, allowed me to get First Blood. Need supports with heavy CC to peel for him. We won that game btw. I feel like @CertainlyT, the rework; you guys are making him revolve around his Q now? It looks like he just likes to smash things up now. Anyway... I wish you guys could try something else with his W (throwing it out there like a Nasus Wither would work on him or his e could slow at least) I try to think the comparison to other bruiser champs (Riven, Irelia) They can CC the **** out of a champion and potentially kick them out for the rest of the game. We now have a champion that can barely cc and can't even execute his skill fairly well. On that note If Irelia or Riven execute their CC on Mordekaiser, he would even have the chance to prock Q's because of all the CC. Anyway the Double Bruiser COULD work but Riot should not remove his solo lane potential and try to break the meta and do a Double Bruiser lane with Mordekasier because to many. It feels like you are removing the champ completely and putting a whole new similar champion in. Here was the Build I used {{item:3117}} with Furor +for sticking {{item:3401}} + for duo lane {{item:3078}} + for everything Sterak's Gage + great for Health and Q scaling ratio {{item:3116}} + Slows {{item:3153}} +Attack Speed, Sustain, Slow I'll be testing him more on the PBE for more feed back.
: Thanks for disabling lux and nami
Saw this last night, went to a custom game and tried. and videod it. Shame on people who abused it in normals XD.
: I experienced this issue as well in a game, sometimes it would detonate immediately itself (I would make sure to only tap E once just to make sure I wasn't caused by double tapping), and other times I couldn't detonate it at all and I would have to spam E to get it to go off. When it works correctly it feels very clean, but Lux's E is very unreliable right now.

Is Pre-Detonte suppose to be clicking on the [E] again to allow it to pop once it reached its destination? And Yes it does seem to pop itself sometimes. I would get that sorted out before that hit live servers as it could be very disruptive for the player. Also sometimes it would still have the live effect of the servers. Oh and I think the topic applies to other skins too because I was using Imperial Lux at the time.

: Her ult feels slower than normal. Not sure if this is just me or if the skin animation is just off. I feel that siding it is way easier, coming from someone playing against her. I agree with the e situation. Can't comment on the passive too much as I haven't played her extensively.
The ult feels a lot smoother than the other ult of the other skins but its still casts the same time.

: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Galactic Azir!
Couple of bugs to report here-mostly visual bugs. 1. Disc of the Sun's HP meter is missing. Instead a blue rectangle appears. 2. As mentioned by previous posts, Galactic Azir turns invisible when her respawns at base. 3. When Disc of the Sun's Turret self-destructs, it leaves a "hole" in the fog of war but does not give any sight.
: Azir Bug Report Thread
Not sure if anyone reported this yet but there are no visuals for Disk of the Sun's HP Bar like actual turrets have hovering above it. To me it was a blue box is there something suppose to be there?
