Yorick's Q affecting structures likely has something to do with any performance metric increase. I think it's already slated for reversion.

That was back before Riot really had much of an art department or quality control. They ended up going with a redesigned version based off of fanart by Katie De Sousa, which eventually lead to her landing a job at Riot proper.

I saw some post somewhere the other day saying how they missed "original art styles like old league of legends" and I just laughed and laughed.

Marc Merril was streaming with Scarra and Dyrus literally a week ago, which is also meaningless because he has nothing to do with balance. That being said, Sona and Yorick are both busted right now and are sporting the winrates to prove it so I don't know why that particular comment is being met with derision.

I've been looking for that gif of three people Flashing to intercept a Cait ult, but sadly I couldn't find it. To me that is the quintessential LoL gif.
Edit: Oh, it is actually in the second post. I am dumb and will leave this post here as a testament to my stupidity.

Yeah, I think they called out that change in particular as a problem. Makes sense that a buff combo'd with new runes would lead to some poo poo.

I've tried him and he's pretty much the same Yorick up until you reach a tower at which point it's taken from 100-0 in a few seconds from ghouls, ult, sheen shovels, and especially demolish.

I think there's a place for that rune but right now it feels as strong as a keystone.

The Plea for attention is my favorite part, It's covers "certain posters" on the thread so well.

"Hey guys, I found my account from 199x, and it was sold on ebay but I somehow got it back lol. I played 1 game and said THIS GAME SUX!!1! every 10 seconds. Am I playing leona correctly? this game is poo poo lolbye"

Those were the hotfixes that went out just after 7.22. Ornn is strong right now but he was hovering around 50% winrate when those hotfixes hit (and they were just part of the runes reforged base stat changes). His trendline has been up up up (particularly on his pick/ban rate) so I'd imagine some nerfs will come through, although it wouldn't surprise me to see them do some rune changes first and see what happens to him after.

I have a sneaking suspicion that also has something to do with the Inspiration tree itself. Biscuit Delivery, Magical Footwear, and Cosmic Insight/Celestial Body are all really powerful runes. I think taking three of those (plus the superior Inspiration passive stat packages) is better than anything else you can get in other trees for Sona. There's a ton of hidden power in the increased consumable duration passive (especially given the mountains of free consumables you are getting via Biscuit Delivery and Kleptomancy), especially in bot lane where staying in lane until certain item breakpoints is super powerful. Since Sona is a sustain support, her staying often means the ADC gets to stay longer as well and hit that BF Sword sooner.

I imagine just having that small amount of extra range has to be really helpful for landing Q->Power Chords

Vermain

Klepto is really, really strong on supports who can make use of it. You give up a good amount of lane pressure by not taking Aery or Comet, but you can take much worse trades and come out ahead and, if you're reasonably lucky, come back to lane with an easy 300-400g lead on your opponent (more if you take Future's and are willing to go into debt). Being able to go Frostfang + Dark Seal + Refillable on first back is honestly pretty crazy.

People undersell the 25 range, but it's worth a lot more than people realize. You outrange most ADCs with it, including traditional hard Sona smashers like Draven.

You have to love riots balance team. Rammus is incredibly strong right now with aftershock, and the response is a 4 base armor nerf. I'm fine getting more free wins with him though

I can destroy you


So there's another bug I've run into-

If you get placed into the low priority queue, there's a chance that you can never queue until you log out and back in.

Several times now the Time Remaining timer has reset at around 10 minutes. Once that countdown completed the countdown window disappeared but the 'Finding Match' timer didn't change at all and was stuck at 30something minutes. It seems to only happen after a full game has been completed.

So if you're in that low priority queue make sure you re-log after a game. This has happened to me on a couple of accounts at different locations
