    You acted like they did.

    No, I'm seriously saying, "I don't think Riot will do well if this is going to be their business model,"


    But yeah, you're right, I wouldn't have bothered saying anything at all if I could play the game.

    Speaking of which...

    I am planning to buy Anivia despite the nerf. Is this stupid Y/Y?

    Well the nerf doesn't completely make her unplayable. It just makes her harass early game difficult and mana consuming. Also her farming capabilities early game are going to be hit hard.

    I have played her a lot and she is a lot of fun. Her skills are very cool and work well when you get them off properly. But she is definitely one of the most difficult champions to play.

    I can tell you whether or not she's viable after playing her since the nerfs.

    That is awesome, I'll try to remember to ask you!

    And though I am not really good enough to talk about balance it did seem like her ultimate was much too powerful before. Last time I laned mid against Anivia she could literally kill every single creep wave with her ultimate from level 6 onwards without running out of mana. That kind of free farm seemed pretty ridiculous.

    If by "unstable as a house of cards" you mean "28 days out of 30 every single month I can log in trouble free at any time 24 hours a day" then we're in complete agreement.

    And yes, I meant inverse correlation.

    no i mean servers for actually playing the game

    every other day I experience severe, game breaking lag and at least once a week i get kicked out of a game

    my only leave is a game i was kicked from that i was subsequently not able to reconnect to

    pisses me off actually

    You realize that's almost entirely going to be an issue on your end?

    The only people I know who experience "severe, game breaking lag" are the ones who have issues with their own ISP or their router or whatever.

    The game is quite stable.

    You might want to look into what's causing your troubles, because I'm pretty sure it's not Riot you should be upset with.
    yeah no when everybody experiences the same lag and gets kicked at the same time

    no

    it's not me

    Well the only thing powerful about her ultimate was early game you could activate it for a second, then use your E on the target you activated it on.

    Her E does double damage to a target that is "frozen" or something. I can't remember the exact terminology they use but slowed effects from the ice of her ult and her Q ability.

    Ashe's arrows do not work, but I believe they did at one time from what I've been told.

    The entire point of the Sivir and Anivia nerfs were to keep them from insta-farming creep waves (and in the case of Anivia, stop her from 1 sec ult + E people in lane). Basically though, it was to make it so that there's no champion that will kill an entire creep wave with one ability.

    It's actually a huge survivability nerf to Sivir since the ability to clear a minion wave is what keeps you alive when you're 2 or even 3 v 1.

    So, I'm surprised that no one has made mention of this. You get less IP from a shorter game -and- they made it faster for the other team to surrender. So if you do too well, the other team can just surrender and you get less IP for playing well.

    On the other hand, depending on when the maximum amount is discovered, some people are going to do whatever they can to draw it out. All it takes is that if one team is clearly better, they can turtle and choose not to knock down many turrets until they hit whatsoever the magical minute mark is, and then push hard to end the game.

    I foresee some abuse of this change to rewards.

    "I am oak" actually makes for a pretty good anagram for a tree champ. Can't say I'd noticed it yet myself.

    except that they just got an injection of, from what i saw, $350 million (ish) when they were bought. so, i actually don't think they're hurting for money.

    and if i could have spent some RP for better technical, i would have.
