I almost always manage to out-duel everyone of my opponents(including Trynds, Jaxs, and Renektons) but I still see everyone bad mouthing her saying she is trash-tier.

I was just curious if you agreed with this, or if you think she is a viable top laner.
Not Xelnath, but I believe Fiora's problem was never dealing damage in lane, but rather her inablity to escape or function effectively when behind. She's got damage for days, but in teamfights just one stun might be the end of you. I think she suffers from old Yi syndrome, and might get changes to her role that make her more of an assassin ala Master Yi. She's definitely fine for solo queue if you know her well.

This must happen, before it is over!
I've been told the demonstones were hidden away again after being used to summon me to crush the corrupt restraints on the duo-lane experience.

That said, I may be a purveyor of the darkest arts... but not even I dare to go toe to toe with the evil lair of Hippalus.

If you were allowed to "work" on Fiora without any restraint's or limit's to what you could do, what would happen to the French Duelist.
I think I would wake up the next morning happy, but heavily bruised.

Xelnath-
Any concepts for high MOBILITY supports? Someone who jumps over a wall, drops a totem or something to buff or debuff, then jumps away?

Ive noticed that in games where balance is an issue, most of the times they take the OP way and make everything feel OP instead of balancing stuff (unlike league which places a huge emphasis on balance) which is why i think is one of the reasons it will never be fully out of beta. Theres a lot to do so that something doesnt end up being OP but that creates more work. Examples would be games like Dota 2 or most other mobas coming out. Another example that has nothing to do with games would be card games, such as yu-gi-oh and so on. This games end up being broken but play able in some aspects due to them being fun and their mechanics interesting. Would you say this is one of the aspects as to why we dont see as much emphasis on games taking the more balanced path but rather the OP one?. Sorry if is hard to read, im tired and dont have much time to fix my wording xD.

My day blew. I lost four of six ranked games which pretty much confirms I wont be able to grind through plat this season and even if I could Riot's clamping in plat I is too stronk.

Meh. Miserable day.
