Why would you encourage people to go to Facebook over Mastodon?

If you're gonna grow a platform, grow the right one.

Also you don't have to leave Twitter to do so. You can post to both.

[–] Serinus 4 points 5 hours ago

That's exactly it. They want it normalized and watered down. It's the same projection they use constantly.

If it has a mustache, but only under the nose.

They were legally not allowed to as part of an agreement to not be s monopoly and allow competition.

He's just disabled. He's just old, like Trump.

He absolutely has. We're getting public transit built out. Caps on overdraft fees. Capped the price of insulin. Invalidated most non-compete clauses. Oh, and he didn't encourage his supporters to attack the Capitol Building and hang Mike Pence.

Oh, and he didn't get a bunch of Americans killed by Covid because he cared more about the stock market than people.

I'd also like to see Ukraine not fall to Russia.

That's just what I can name of the top of my head. He was a better president than Obama.

Jon Stewart. Someone go pull him and make him do it. There's no one better to take down Trump.

[–] Serinus 3 points 1 day ago

My bad. Thanks for the correction.

They're both pretty terrible.

Only because it's already on my clipboard.

People talk about hard work all the time in places like Middletown. You can walk through a town where 30 percent of the young men work fewer than twenty hours a week and find not a single person aware of his own laziness.

  • JD Vance

He thinks rural people are poor because they don't want to work.

[–] Serinus 1 points 1 day ago* (last edited 1 day ago)

Not that tough. No one in the US is making EV sedans under $60k. There's Tesla and the Hyundai Ionic 6 and...

(The Chevy Bolt is discontinued last I checked.)

His book is a gold mine if you're looking to portray him as a prick.

Patch 14.14 Notes (

14.14 Patch Preview (self.leagueoflegends)
submitted 1 week ago by Serinus to c/leagueoflegends

14.14 Preview!

Un-Pro skewing some champs

  • Over the years, we've unskewed a lot of champions from Pro, including Akali, Sylas, Irelia, etc. to make them more effective for normal players
  • These champs are now really playable for regular players, which is great, but we're investigating adding some of their skew back so they're more usable in Pro/High MMR in some situations
  • Pro has been suffering from a lack of viable aggressive options and even the ones that do (Ahri, LB, etc.) frequently purchase things like defensive boots, etc.


  • It's been a long time coming, but we're investigating changes to Teleport to resolve its ability to wash lanes, while also still avoiding the bot lane party
  • We haven't been happy with it in its current state or how inelegant some of the solutions we're thinking about but it's gotten to the point where early TP's are so uninteractive, we feel we need to act

Defensive Boots

  • Defensive boots are a little too strong and have been for a while (eg. Mercs), though the changes we did earlier to Steelcaps ended up being too power positive, so we'll likely scale them back
  • It might take a bit of time to land on a good solution here, but we're thinking about the problem

More on champions tomorrow

##Absorb Life

"We're looking at reducing the power of early sustain (Fleet adjustments in 14.15 as well) by nerfing Absorb Life in the early game and skewing its power more towards late game"

##Warmog's Armor

"Warmogs is finally in a spot where it's seeing play which is good

It's a little too good in general though, especially 1st on supports

For some champs, we're OK with it as a first rush, but primarily gearing it towards being good second and just nerfing it generally

We think warmogs is a great tank pattern in general and are happy it's seeing more play though"

Patch 14.13 Preview (self.leagueoflegends)
submitted 1 month ago by Serinus to c/leagueoflegends

Matt Leung-Harrison @RiotPhroxzon Patch 14.13!

Will chat about champions tomorrow.

Domination Keystone Pass

  • This patch we're taking a swing at differentiating Electrocute and Dark Harvest, making Electrocute more of an early game focused rune and having Dark Harvest lean more into the stacking fantasy
  • Simultaneously, there is a stretch goal to have Dark Harvest be better for laning champions by bringing the cooldown down so it can stack more quickly
  • We're simultaneously changing several Dark Harvest users, so trying to be a bit more risk averse here


  • Opportunity has become the default choice for many Pro ADC's particularly as the games are slower and they are more reliant on high impact, low frequency moments
  • We think the gap between Opportunity and other Lethality items could be reduced some, so we are nerfing the item for Ranged champions, while leaving melee intact


  • Kalista Varus have been some of the stronger Pro champs for a while
  • At the same time, we expect Ezreal to enter the meta in a big way in 14.12 (already seeing play in 14.11) and we haven't seen him for a while
  • We are looking at some changes to Varus to make him a little less valuable in Pro while still retaining both of his builds in some capacity
  • Right now, Lethality is clearly the best build though and we're looking to make on-hit more competitive


  • We're choosing to nerf several of the champions who buy Fated Ashes items, as we believe the items are in a reasonable spot.
  • We're also trying to be a bit more cautious with these changes as surrounding systems like Domination keystones are changing and we can't rule out changing Fated Ashes at a later stage

Arena Overall, Arena balance feels like it is in a good spot, props to the team for diligent followup here. How has the experience been with 16 bans?

Our main focus with this set of changes was to audit any Arena specific buffs and nerfs to target satisfaction of abilities that are baseline weaker in the mode due to less champions or map traversal value, like Taliyah R, Kassadin E, etc.

  • Buffs: Back to Basics, Demonic Embrace, Overlord's Bloodmail, Detonation Orb, Akali, Blitz, Yone, Azir, Corki, Heimerdinger, Kai'sa, Taliyah, Kassadin, Rek'Sai

  • Nerfs: Kha'Zix, Sylas, Pyke, Kayn, Hamstringer

  • Adjustments: Vi (making the spell have value at rank 1 again)
