Actually defending yourself is something I respect
I guess turning to a real spider with 8legs kill the "sexy" part around her, we still don't know anything about her abilities yet
Is there anything that confirms she will be AP mid? I prefer her to be able to jungle at least (either AP or AD), the idea of a spider jumping out of jungle will kill arachnophobia players
The beginning of wisdom is the statement 'I do not know.' The person who cannot make that statement is one who will never learn anything. And I have prided myself on my ability to learn
I feel double standards here and it's not something I would encourage, especially not when you are a moderator. There is absolutely nothing to like about that response. It's immature, rude to those that actually have a handicap and it's a way of communication that's just plain dumb in the context of PR, as previously mentioned.
Bashiok and a few of those other blues are no exception to this. Bashiok is the worst possible CM ever to have walked the earth in a blue coat. Not because I disagree with what he says, per definition, but because he's the biggest liar the company has, is extremely foulmouthed and revels in it. Especially that last part is dangerous.
If she has a level 1 ult like Jayce I could see jungle Elise working, just like jungle Lulu, Zyra, and Annie "work". Certainly not in any competitive manner though.

So the main point is, they aren't moderators, they are Riot employees. So they have no obligation to moderate their posts, or anything really.
So Q is generic damage
W is generic damage with slow-moving projectile.
E is skillshot stun.
Q2 is generic gapcloser
W2 is random steroid
E2 is...playful trickster with an absolutely ridiculous duration
Broodmother still best spider.
Need I say more.
Anyway, last legit copy was Thrall>Viktor.
And to be clear, I find it morally wrong. I'm not saying they should be arrested or fired, or assassinated, although fired in the case of Bashiok, no problem, but I'm saying its wrong on several moral levels and from a PR perspective.
Any mod/dev/whatever forum boy that carries the MMO-Champion flag should refrain from uttering any personal opinion that condones or agrees with such behavior when they function as the arm of the law on these boards. If you can't deal with that as a moderator of these boards, you shouldn't be a moderator of these boards and you can express your infantile opinions just like the other rabid Riot fanbois. ('you' being the one(s) it applies to).
Nothing wrong with defending the game or its design choice. There is something wrong with how he chooses to do so. Any semi intelligent being, could handle that with a perfect bit of sarcasm, without actually ever getting insulting and juvenile.To be honest that certainly is not the worst Morello has said. I personally like that he is willing to defend his game like that against someone who, quite frankly, is a total idiot.

Funnily enough, my first thought when I saw human-form Elise wasn't Zyra. Or Syndra/Diana, for that matter. It was Drider/Drow Queen/Lolth. That tickled me enormously and her abilities seem like a lot of fun. Even though I tend to main AD, I think I'll pick her up asap.

I made a couple of comments about Elise in the LoL main forum on MMO-C.
Basically after a game, her E is insanely OP in Spider Form, 2 second Playful trickster, and no Mana cost, just a huge CD.
We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.
Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?
The moment you lower yourself to their level, which is what a few (Bashiok) Blizzard Mods/Devs actually do, you're just dragging the level of the entire board down with you. Double moral, double standards. I also wish they'd hammer some people on these very boards for sequential baiting, instead of just singular occurrences, because that would clean up the MMO_champion boards as well. That doesn't mean that I agree with the 'how', the manner, the level, the choice of expression.
You all take their side so easily, but I wonder how you would feel after you inserted a ticket and a Blizzard moderator replies to you, telling you are a fucking retard and should shut the fuck up kkbaithx. I'd say the forum would soon be flooded and apologies being made. I do not see how this should be any different on a forum and I do not see how any mod on any board, including this one, can publicly ( I don't care what you do in private) agree with this. If you agree, just don't tell anyone. It's out of place, you should realize you post with a certain responsibility and it does not belong.
No. The problem with idiots tends to be twofold:
1) a sense of entitlement
2) being completely dense to oblique or obfuscated arguments pertaining their lack of comprehension.
Sometimes, you have to be blunt as a 10-ton hammer. That does not mean doing this persistently or even a lot of times. It means doing this at the right time, when someone is indeed being a complete and utter moron.
Your argument is fallacious at best and intentionally misleading at worst. When you send a ticket, you don't do so to Morello, Ghostcrawler or Bashiok. You send one to Player Support, whose job it is to help people. Even so, I wager they get a ton of pointless messages, which is part of the reason for so many copy/paste responses. Lay off the strawman arguments, they do not help your case.
Oh how I've not missed the LoL vs Dota2 vs HoN of MMO
Just ignore it. I find that works wonders for the most part.
That said, within reason it can be a valuable/viable discussion. "I prefer DotA2's flexible meta, because..." or "I like the focus on champions rather than items in LoL, as this means..." would be fine. "Joo suk and HoN >> DotA2 becos clerly DotA2 stole all from HoN" is not fine.
