They actually schedule time on my calendar where they ask me to play live games to keep apprised via research.

Any info or if you could just have someone post about it to give us an update would be great.
Yeah, Xypherous got the core kit hashed out. He was really strong. Now we have some iterative work going into try and make fighting turrets feel less like getting stabbed in the eyeball with a toothpick.

So apparently it is still fun to watch.
Using that logic Breaking Bad season 1 is not fun to watch and Call of Duty is the pinnacle of FPS. Many good things get overlooked and people will buy/watch/eat bad things all the time.

Why can Fiddlesticks have a 3second fear and an 8 second cool down? How is this not toxic?

When can we get a better item for countering Life Steal/Ridiculous Amounts of healing for AD? I'm referring to the toxic play style of Warwick with spirit visage at top. Executioner's calling feels like a noob trap, and I feel like we need an item more worthwhile similar to morello's evil tome, but it's ad.

Or even for an ad champion like Zed, fighting swain. Anything would be nice honestly, hopefully an item that scales into late game. Ignite is just not enough when you need it to make trades constantly.

I really don't understand the question. So here's a GIF: http://imgur.com/jWc4kkL

What is your opinion on the Large Hadron Collider and its scientific implications regarding the beginning of life and the refuting of theology? Also how bad would you think the consequences were to become if a gremlin bathed in cold water while inside the acceleration tubes made a time machine, travel back to 1997, married a furby and remade "Jaws" into a Pitbull Remix (Ft. Dj-ImASharkSuckMyD*ck) with a dubstep sound combined with pollen from a bee's electrically charged bear-mawed paw taken from a LoTR version of "Bajo Kazooie: The return of Mumbo Jumbo"?

They said exactly why they 'patched it out' when they did it. The 2v1 lane strategy was used to bypass the lane phase of the game, which made champions who specialize in being good early-game picks, or champions that can't defend 2v1, completely worthless. Just as there can be champions that are overpowered and need to be nerfed, there are strategies that can become overwhelmingly dominant as well. Sure, you can come up with something to beat it, just as it was theoretically possible to beat post-launch Diana and Zyra, but that didn't mean they weren't still a problem that needed to be fixed. It's not like 2v1 lanes can't still be done, they're just less good than they used to be, because they were too good before.

Hi, Xelnath. Do you have anything to share with regards to the Viktor changes? I love my little robotic man, but the short range, mid-game ward bottleneck, and poor late game augment scaling are keeping me down. I know his rework isn't your thing, but I was wondering if maybe you'd heard anything.

Thanks for doing this thread.
