    Flush is such a fun word.

    Anyhow, I'm just dumping ideas I've had/tossed around for awhile that I may or may have not decided to give up on, for one reason or another. These ideas have been rattling around in my head for awhile, but otherwise aren't going to be used or touched up upon due to how the game has changed since then and how much further along I am with my own personal knowledge of game development is. It's probably better to wipe the slate clean then cling to old models that don't work so well.

    This character is unabashedly based off Hol Horse from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and Mordecai from Borderlands (namely, pistol-oriented young Mordecai and not the Sniper-exclusive drunk Mordecai) in flavor and mechanics (superaimed skillshot…

    ...But if you had to pick?

    August 25, 2014 by Typhron

    I'm sick again and making blog posts, so everyone run away.

    Here's a question for you, LoLWiki goers. Which champion is your 'favourite'?

    Which champion is your favourite aesthetically? (looks or sounds pretty/badass/awesome? Best login theme, if any?)

    Which champion is your favourite kinesthetically? (feels good/fun/overpowered/challenging/JUST right? Most satisfying kills/killsecures?)

    Which is your favourite champion lore-wise? (uh...pretty self-explanatory)

    I'm interested to know the whats and whys. Wax on as much as you'd like. But when it gets right down to it, you must only pick one of each.

    Edit: Wow, this got more coverage than I thought. Going to be tally thing up privately and showing the results after a few days for those interested. …

    I made a long post about Quinn on /r/Summonerschool and playing her as an ADC as well as top (or even mid!!!!!!!!), and am just mirroring it here because reasons. It's long, it's verbose, it's the exact same thing I did for Nocturne and Karma awhile back. If this sort of thing tickles you're pickle (or you don't like it, I'm not a mod anymore I can't abuse my powah notthatIdidbeforehandbutstillaaaaa) you're welcome to add your commentary, I don't mind.

    May advice may not as sound as /u/maxhambread 's or /u/TTunnell 's, so take it with the largest grain of salt you can muster. Keeping in mind I play her as a ADC and top, but prefer her in the ADC role.

    Answering your questions.

    Karma's Problems.

    August 25, 2013 by Typhron


    . She sucks. She could suck a golfball through a garden hose.

    You're not going to see Karma picked at LCS, unless it's by accident. The dev team hates her, pros hate, normal players hate her and among the consensus of anyone into the game, only a small amount of players play her in any/every form of the game because they either don't have any better characters (or don't know any better due to their low ranking in Ranked) or ADAMANTLY believe she's a viable mage or support, even if she's missing everything that makes those roles doable. Karma players that actually do well with Karma do well based on their own merit, not because Karma herself is any good. The sooner she gets changed or reworked, the better. Hell, you might as well play .

    Fiora QoL changes

    August 19, 2013 by Typhron

    Hey, I'm Typhron. I do these things. You guys know the drill.

    Alrighty, truth time. In some strangely bad way, I think I'm good at Fiora and have some valid say on how she should be rebalanced if she ever gets a buff/nerf, thinking she's rather good. That's not a popular opinion. Infact, the perception right now is that Fiora is either a) sleeper OP or b) Tryndamere/Roll Tier with everyone being in either camp. Either way, she's a bit of a nightmare for folks. That's probably on purpose.

    Honestly? She's oddly 'balanced', if needing an update here and there. Of course, there's also that melee carries got shafted this Season and the Yi rework makes highlights how much of a AD-centric copy of the old Yi she was. So here's what I think would make…
