    Nasus is finally getting some love :3

    Hope they don't overdo it though. These mana changes are fucking insane.

    It's still kinda lacking compared to an actual gap closer. It's common to associate a slow like that without a gap closer as being a lackluster ganking tool, kind of how like jungle Shyvana, Udyr, and Teemo ganks being not that great.

    Instead of ganking I say it would be better to shroom all 3 lanes up and then just farm. That way you can be annoying to all the lanes at the same time.

    I have now been demoted to fucking Bronze V. The kind of fucknuggets you are paired with in ranked is unreal. I do not give a snivelling fuck what anyone says, just because you are better than the people you are playing with does not mean you can carry your way out of the division.

    Told many times to keep your raging out of this thread. Don't do it again after this.

    Really I don't think we're stupid enough to be confused at the sight of a skin. It's not like you're going to forget who the champion is because of a skin unless you're not paying attention at all. Now I could see them not liking how Lux's new skin caused concern for her binding being harder to notice, but they said it wasn't because of that.

    it's not aimed at us level 30s, it's aimed at the level 2s, i.e EVERYONE should be able to recognize the champion, not only those that've played enough matches to see most skins

    @Nasus buffs: As long as they justify it by nerfing his late-game, I'm all for it.

    @Skins: I like this. They're catering to very newer players tuning in. This is awesome

    Banning only some is stupid. The pros know every skins. Idgaf about the lowbies. Either learn or shut up. But like normal. Game companies cater for the rookies and morons.

    These nasus buffs seem intense. I'm scared to see him.
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    Yes catering to newer people trying to get into the game BY BANNING OUT VISUAL STUFF THAT'S POTENTIALLY CONFUSING?

    They're trying to promote professional gaming as a sport; why on earth shouldn't they cater to newcomers who're trying to get into the game?

    And yes, not allowing skins 100% would be prefered for me aswell.

    Oh no, it's confusing. I weep for them.
    Others have learned, they can to. There is a reason people are getting stupider. It's because they aren't being forced to learn anymore.

    Either only original skins, or no bans.
    Some of these banned skins stop stupid issues like Vlads AA, and Trists. Sure some stuff is broken like TFS underworld skin, but yeah.

    I can't wait until someone picks Blitz or Sivir and their hook/boomerangs disappearand prove how Riot can't even fix their game and they are promoting something they seem to lazy to fix.

    honestly, what are you, 10?

    the reason they have banned out the specific set of skins is because they're too far from the original model and they want all the champions played to be easily recognisable by anyone spectating with a limited amount of knowledge about the game.

    this is not about learning or spending time learning, this is about catering to those that have a limited experience with League of Legends.

    I noticed that skillshots disappear only after alt+tabbing when enemy is shooting skillshot and relogging (shutting down game application and relaunching it, not leaving game and reconnecting to server).

    Steel Legion Lux has been banned because the animations are too different from the original: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...00967#34300967
    I imagine skins like Nutcrako (I think that's the spelling) are also banned because they just don't clearly portray the champion (btw, it's Shaco).

    On a side note, I have discovered Akali is my ticket out of Bronze. Currently at a positive win/loss ratio with her, and my averages are 10.4/2.5/4.8, since I have loved her since I first got her and think I know her quite well. Unfortunately she is starting to trend a bit flavor of the month, but I hope it dies down without resulting in a nerf. Anywho 76/100 League Points in Bronze Division 1, hoping to get that last bit then have decent Best of 5 games (hah).

    WOOOOT? How can you have problems in seeing shots from steel legion lux? They are almost same as original lux.

    Actually, it is even easier to distinguish a root steel legion lux (it is colored white) from singularity (it is yellow). On default skin they are just two white balls (root is huge sized, singularity is transparent)

    Mainly her Q. It's hitbox is ridiculously big for the size of the projectile; it takes the crown from Morg's Q for most deceptive skillshot IMO.

    Oh, i didn't knew that different skin gives different hitbox for skillshot, because, if you played against lux before, you would know hitbox for her Q and not get into it anyway.
