    depends on what the respawn timer on enemy was if it was <30s 1tower(maybe 2 if you didnt get 1st tower) after that heal up and ready for another team fight near baron (otherwise they might rush baron after respawn with homeguard)

    is it just me or i buy some champ and NEVER play it >_> i feel pretty silly doing it (with ip ofc lol) poor kat lol still "untouched" for 5months :P

And Riot still didn't figure out how to balance melee ADCs so they can be somewhat usable in competitive play, without overbuffing them so they'll completely stomp lower level play again.

    Honestly, Riot does generally address issues brought up by high-tier play, but this isn't always a good thing. While they might hit the right area, they very rarely hit it with the right force or instrument. Rengar has bounced around so often now that I consider the balancing system something of a joke. He was released with obnoxious bugs, then his bugs were fixed at the same time as other buffs arrived, making him completely ridiculous. Since then hardly a patch has gone by (at least until season 3) without Rengar buffs or nerfs, and the most recent "rework" to make his W scale with AD was nothing but a sledgehammer to break his kit and finally put the matter to rest. They also often buff or nerf the wrong abilities, which can leave champions in the same underpowered/overpowered state despite constant tweaks, until eventually a numerical threshold is reached where the champion becomes unstoppable or unplayable. Instead of looking at core problems, the solution is usually one of brute force or random scatterings of nerfs.

    "Reworks" are generally more helpful, but they're far too infrequent to arrive as often as they're needed. If the question really is one of resources, I would rather they completely stopped making new champions and focused their efforts on having all of their current champions in an at least usable state. It's impossible to have every champion 100% viable, but they clearly aren't happy with their own designs in many cases, so I would rather they fixed them instead of throwing around vague ideas for a few years before actually doing something. Obviously none of this will happen, because reworks don't bring in the money like shiny new champions do.
    Just want to point out a few things:
    1) Balance changes are not reworks
    2) Reworks are far more time consuming
    3) Riot just did a massive overhaul of the entire game from the ground up, which took away Xypherous from Heimerdinger's rework
    4) A lot of the 'problematic' abilities are the ones that define characters. You can't fiddle with those without removing why people play the champion in the first place.
    5) On the whole, the balance in the game is getting far better over time
    6) As to melee ADs, it's a problem the class has, not the champions
    7) Which is made worse by how stupendous the Bruisers have gotten.

    Anyone see that some place in china opened themed on league of legends. Appears to be some cafe or some shizzle. It does not appear sanctioned by riot though lol.

    People are just under the impression that Riot sit on their hands at their office all day.

    They don't see steps of a Heimer rework so they think that one isn't happening. Riot have already said that they take months to design a champion, so we obviously know there are multiple champions currently in development. They do a lot of stuff behind the scenes (as pretty much every company does, seriously who announces every single step they take?). People will always find something to complain about, I'm just glad that it's stuff like this rather than the actual game content. As long as I know that Riot are actually trying to sort the problems in the game that's fine. No company is infallible and they have to take time to solve their own problems. If it was perfect we'd all get bored of it being stagnant :S

    Indeed. I find it quite amusing though. Seems to be part net cafe too so must have been created by a fan of LOL.

    Regarding the LoL themed restaurant, there's a bunch of stuff and articles to read if you're interested. Anyone care for Deep Fried Skarners?

    I'm also sure Muzual would love to be served by the Ezreal.

    Very true, do we need to bring up the 7+ unofficial Harry Potter novels that came out over there

    Also I have a bit of a mancrush on Garen right now... it's like playing with stabalizers on
    Reading the A song of Ice and Fire series is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere and shoots the puppy, then punches you in the face

    Plenty for me: Garen, Ryze, Soraka and Tristana I never play unless ARAMmed, and I steer clear of Alistar, Nunu and Taric.

    Just needed enough champs for Draft though

    When you have all the champs, some of them are always left out for a while.

    Thing is, though, I played Nunu all the time when I was starting out. Just gone off him for some reason.

    2 minutes ago, 20000+ in queue. Expected time is 9 minutes.

    Now, 1 in queue, 1 second remaining..... Dafuq?

    At least you didn't get the funny bug where the amount of people in front of you decreases but the estimated wait time keeps increasing to silly levels.

    I had a funny queue. Got into it first: over 20 000 waiting, 19 minutes to go. Then the periodic position checks started. 1st: 20k+, 4h; 2nd:20k+, 3h; 3rd: 20k+, 1h; 4th: 6500, 9 min; 5th: did not come, got in 10 seconds after previous check.

    Welp, that was random.

    I just got a warning message for trying to exit the game that I would get a time penalty and my series will be cancelled if I exit the game. I wasn't even in a lobby o_O What?
