    Riot is just trying to help you quit the game by only releasing dash champions with immunities

    Her visual design and voice are really appealing though

    Very cool outfit

    I will reserve judgment about the kit until I see it in play but certainly when I watched the video of her phasing through the TF gold card I groaned

    One of the weirder experiences in this game is to be subject to an endless 2v3 or 2v4 bot, such that you simply do not get to play the game, and your team takes advantage of the total vacuum elsewhere to steamroll the game, but they continually flame you for being a nonfactor all the while. Why do you think it's so easy for you all!

    That's better than the people who let their laners roam and are just like "no I have to freeze the lane"

    It's weird that they keep doing Star Guardian's after messing up Xayah and Rakan.

    Sure they're fine as the lovers to enemies/save the mind washed trope.

    But they should've just being the school bullies given cosmic power by the bad guys to punk those Star Guardian Nerds.

    i think these sg skins are a big miss, which is a first

    kai'sa is fine i guess, but all the rest of them just do nothing for me at all

    Sona with Glasses is Strong.

    Kai'Sa is boring because at this point every kai'sa skin is a new essay on how Riot wants her to be hot girl whose body suit is small and not Monster Body Suit.

    Ekko's fine but like... it feels real close to skins he already has.

    Fiddles is a cool theme that seems about as far executed as you'll get for a non legendary budget.

    See, I don't like Ekko but...I think I do like all the others pretty well. Also glad to see another villain added to the line--it needs more clear enemies / conflict that isn't just intra-team fighting.

    I know that Zeri just got a skin but it's totally nuts to me that she's not the legendary star guardians skin, because she fits the theme really well already, what with being a peppy neighborhood hero (Ekko also fits the bill thematically although his skin is boringgggg)

    The Kai'sa one is uninspiring, the Sona one is very uninspiring (and again why not Seraphine instead of Sona--maybe cause her base skin already looks too star guardian-y), and the Fiddlesticks one is kinda cool actually.

    Probably because Sera *also* literally just got a skin? (Two if you count the Prestige.) Don't care, gimmie dat Sona skin, I actually really dig the wings. Will also give me something else to use instead of just PsyOps all the time.

    Also this is just the first wave, this sounds to be a two-wave event of skins.

    The Domino Mask is my call to return to top lane and war crimes. That Garen who swapped to try avoid my Lillia has no idea how good he had it.

    Just won lane/won game against a D1 ADC and then a masters duo.

    I had to take a break after that shit back to back

    EDIT: oh yeah, I forgot the best part

    My adc in the first game would not. Stop. Bitching about me 'taking' kills. He fucking wanted me to let his trait expire and let the cait kill me I guess? At one point he even said he wanted the other support instead of me!
    Look at this shit

    I've been taking a break from my main account (disgusting loss streak. And then, last time I queued ranked, someone in champ select called out the length of the loss streak and I was mortified and haven't requeued since) and playing a few ranks lower on my smurf or in flex on my main.

    Today I messed around with Renata Glasc again and I still don't know quite how to feel. I end up feeling very impactful and simultaneously like I'm not doing much.

    I think if I were as good at landing the handshake as I am at landing the bubble, I could pick her sort of interchangeably with Nami--or...weaker early, stronger late? Or...not even, just more power in the ult, less in the abilities? Not sure exactly how to characterize it. I need to play her a lot more to get a better sense of my ranges and to be able to land Q more. Shouldn't be hard! I think it should be easier than landing the bubble, honestly, I'm just way less practiced.

    Steam, LoL: credeiki
  • PMAversPMAvers Registered User regular
    I'm honestly still a bit gun-shy about taking Renata onto the rift after my launch experiences.

    I *am* pretty happy to hear that Taric is actually back as a legit good option. Would love to pull that out as a counter-pick to a assassin-heavy team but I keep on getting first pick LITERALLY EVERY TIME I play recently, so I just end up playing something safe like Sona or Senna still.

    When I play renata I am almost always playing around her ult, which to me is the reason why I pick her. Which is also why I always go red secondary runes with ultimate hunter.

    Oh, that's nice.

    Thinking about her kit from that perspective...I'm not that surprised I don't think. Low-cooldown AoE means the group camps clear pretty well. I'm not sure I see how they'll be able to lock her out of that. Probably remove the Sear from her autos, maybe, but that's such a "force-fix" on the game.

    Renata is pretty strictly a disengage-and-farm-it-out champ until level 6.

    I feel like it's pretty rare for riot to really pigeonhole champs into a single role that isn't support or jungle. So if she's gonna do a second, off meta role, it might as well be jungle where her passive will at least be useful while ganking other lanes.

    If she ended up something like Gwen tier jungling I would be happy. You know, can jungle, not totally ideal. I think it's a good comp too since her ganks would probably end up being only okay, especially pre 6, and she would just farm up like a monster.

    Renata is pretty strictly a disengage-and-farm-it-out champ until level 6.

    You poke with E and use Q if they are wildly out of position, but otherwise yeah.

    The biggest issue with Renata at this ELO is getting your team to fight in conducive spaces to maximize your value. She shines in JNG fights.

    And also don't forget that her ult also makes the enemy wave attack enemy champs.

  • credeikicredeiki Registered User regular
    hm yeah I think I'm just so scared of playing a champ where so much of her power is in her ult, because WHAT IF I MISS THE ULT*

    and yes ofc in that case, maybe just only do the ult when there is setup cc (yours or someone else's) or when you're in baron pit or in a hallway or whatever. But it's still so much pressure! It's so scary

    I do not really play disengage champs voluntarily (and if I wanted to, I could just play Janna who is easier for me), so not having aggressive lane pressure and instead having potential/punishing lane pressure is like...very boring. I think this is a situation where it would be helpful to have an adc duo whose style I understood (but honestly I wouldn't want to duo with someone who wasn't an aggressive player. And I basically don't want to duo at all)

    I don't know, I really like Renata Glasc but I think I shouldn't play her at my own elo (but in my deflated fuck around flex elo it's fine, and also I can play aggressive in a way that is not appropriate)

    I just really like yelling about disrupting the market

    I'm always playing LoL in the same room as lfx so he gets this steady stream of I'm sure not at all annoying 'ayyy I just disrupted their market' commentary


    *and it's not that I'm not familiar with say the 0 for 4 Jhin ult and similar, but somehow even the "zoning" Nami wave feels better than a whiff of the Renata Glasc ult

    I suspect it has to do with feeling like there was more missed potential: Renata's ult is like "Oh, I could kill a couple of their people if they go Berserk" while Nami's basically isn't anything but CC, so if you get them away from where you wanted them it's still fine.

    I generally just hop out of vision and fire off the ult because the windup is LONG but if they don't see that then they are EXTREMELY likely to get hit

    Hope so! I'd say welcome aboard but I don't play any single champion enough to really have a "main." (She is still my highest mastery, though.)

    If Sejuani felt better in matches where I didn't have at least 2 other melee champs on the team I'd easily have her on my short list for jungle picks.

    Unfortunately for now she stays as "the tank pick for when we need one and I do not want to lower myself to udyr"

  • Knight_Knight_ Dead Dead Dead Registered User regular
    i'm primarily a tank jungler at this point, i've been playing a lot of volibear and rammus.

    i used to play a ton of poppy and lilia but i've had a hard time with them post-durability update so i've been leaning a lot more into just massive disruption and tankyness and it's been fairly effective. lilia especially, she was one of my best champs last season but i just haven't had it at all this season for whatever reason.

    i think volibear is just generally better, but i also expect him to get his ass nerfed any day now so trying to not get too attached.
