League of Legends: The New Thread

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

I think so I can just see friends trying to rank of honor for each other and I'm wondering how riot's gonna fix that overall I do think it's a good change to help make league a better place.

I think they're going to make it so queued together players can't honor each other, or very limited in the amount of times they can honor each other, along with the honor revamp

AFK Stats! http://www.leagueofgraphs.com/rankings/afk-stats

11% of Bronze games have an AFK.

It rapidly goes down from there: Silver 7.1%, Gold 5.3%, Platinum 4.2%, Diamond 3.3%, Master 2.2%

So if you're Gold, roughly 1 in 20 games has an AFK

Regions vary from 10.7% of games having an AFK (Brazil with LAS, LAN and Turkey close behind) to 3.3% (Japan). Korea is 3.6% and NA is 5.3%

Xin Zhaos have an AFK rate that is roughly twice as high as Ezreals.

So I've just done some testing and realized that gargoyle stoneplate's health bonus counts for the locket of the iron solari active's health scaling. Which is insane.

Let's say you have a full build, level 18 nautilus with the following items: ninja tabi, locket, stoneplate, abyssal mask, dead man's, righteous glory + elixir. Not a terribly unusual build.

That's 3514 health with veteran's scars. Locket gives 434 (level scaling) + 531 (health scaling) for a total of 965 health shielded per person on your team.

Activating stoneplate gives you an additional 3514 health. This is an additional 1229.9 bonus shield. For a total of 2194 health shielding. Per person.

Without even calculating effective health, you can grant your team a total of over 10,000 bonus health.

Mind you locket shield active lasts 2.5 seconds, so it is unlikely that all of this bonus health will be burned through.

However, just looking at is at a concept, this effectively doubles the health bar of your squishies for 2.5 seconds at your discretion during a teamfight. Doubling the health bars is literally granting stoneplate's active to your squishies without the damage reduction deficit.

Even against assassin's it's handy, they can't burn through 4k hp in a rotation and most assassin damage takes place in ~2.5 seconds. That is a really late game scenario though. Idk the numbers but redemption just might be more helpful more of the time on the supports that get it and they typically beat the tankos in lane

mage supports are weaker now, tanks are coming back. also you are generally looking at getting locket on top laners here. different situations will make different items stronger. if you can afford the delay on redemption it might be more useful but that isnt always an option.

It's worth noting that even without a full build late game scenario, you're looking at having a similar impact even in the midgame.

As enemy assassins will be weaker, you'll need less health to have the shield strength negate them, so smaller shield is still serving the same function.

Randomidget also gets it. I'm looking at the impact of introducing health scaling on locket in terms of how it would work on cinderhulk jungles or tanky top laners.

If you take a Zac with veteran's scars, cinderhulk, and locket + stoneplate at level 9, you get a shield worth 691 health.

At level 18 with spirit visage dead man's, you get a shield worth 2804.

It's a really good shield even early on and turns into a monstrous one later. The cost of stoneplate / locket is 4700 gold for a combination that effectively doubles your adc's health bar in late game.

Fair enough. Poke supports aren't weaker though, that's a myth.

But yeah, taric's necklace on a laner with gargoyle seems good.

The potential of this to consider is also the fact it enables squishier team compositions overall: a carry jungler with a squishy support is still workable because they get two health bars. And squishports are usually the people who run redemption.

So you can have your people get chunked, pop the redemption, pop the stoneplate locket, have them get healed back to full off redemption while locket eats up all the damage in the second rotation. You've negated two rounds of burst in extended fights, effectively, and enabled yourself to have more damage pumped out in the process.



And this is without considering the super special lulu ult counting as bonus health interaction on top of everything else lulu does.

Fucking lulu.
