    The Shen rework feels a bit weird.

    It's like they can't decide whatt hey want him to be.

    TAnk? Bruiser? Support? His kit is all over the place really.

    HIs new Q seems ok but they really took away his sustain and laning with it, now you have to focus on using your shield but the shield is even weaker now since it doesn't block flat out damage but now just blocks basic attacks, so that feels like a huge nerf.

    I was playing shen quite a bit this pre-season and I really prefer his original kit over this.

    to be honest his sustain was already to high to begin with.. but yeah i agree they're trying to hard not to change his "identity" but don't have a clue how to keep it at the same time.. never really thought shen needed a rework anyways as far as skills go. he's always been an average solo queue champ but was much better in a competitive aspect due to the coordination required with his ulti. but i think what really caused the need to rework him was people playing him as a support, lol.

    Is it just me or has balance in 3's gotten REALLY wonky after the last patch? I mean, balance was always off, but whatever balanced they used to have feels gone to me now.

    I think they are focusing most attention on summoner's rift.

    Heck they are closing the Dominion game mode cause so few people play it, I wouldn't be surprised if that happened to twisted treeline in the future.

    It'd be nice if they at least had different skins for summoners rift like they used to (IE snowy map, halloween inspired map, etc).

    I do. Mainly because my friend still does and he moved out of state. We still log on a few times a week to play some matches. It's a decent way to still hang out =P

    Our other friends have bailed on the game, and frankly I understand why. Sometimes it just makes me angry lol

    And the constant changes for the sake of just changing shit can be annoying, since if I wanted to learn new mechanics I'd find a new game. Guess that's my age talking now ><

    Anyway! I exclusively play 3's. While I know that isn't most people's preference, it'd be cool to have you fill in a match from time to time! Pugs suck. I'm chockomonkey in game.

    OMG.

    They finally got rid of Adobe AIR????

    Huzzah!

    I just installed after almost a year off, and was shocked at how decent it actually looks once you crank the DSR to 4K with AA and a 120fps cap.

    They changed a lot of spell effects though....

    All Annie's fire 'ish is purple now :(

    EDIT: Ah, figured it out. Apparently different skins have different spell effects now.. Back to vanilla Annie I go *shrugs

    Man you really haven't played in awhile! Adobe AIR was ditched ages ago! And yes.. they have changed TONS of the game. They'll go through entire types of classes, like Assassins, and change things from almost every assassin in the game.

    It's kinda annoying, cause as an old dog i hate learning new tricks.

    Agreed, the time it takes to begin having fun is much shorter in 3's.

    I'll look for ya in game!

    Specing out a system dedicated to LOL.

    Do LOL pros prefer adaptive/GSYNC or not? 144hz? Mouse DPI? What type of keyswitches? What do you like for OE headphones?

    Thanks.

    I would think frame rates would mean more than Gsync. Especially in a a game like LOL. Mouse DPI, higher the better. Up the DPI to max. Drop the mouse acceleration to damn near nil for accuracy.
