In-houses

An in-house is when ten gaffers join to play three rounds of custom games. It's a good place for meeting people and getting advice for how to improve at the game. We usually hold at least once monthly in-house game, but some months we hold as many as four.

RFC -> Rapid Fire Cannon

No lethality cap AFAIK.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't diminishing returns kick in depending on team comps in particular? Full stacking arpen+reduction gives you either 74 lethality + 30% reduction + 7% reduction = effective 113.67 for Ferocity tree or 82.4 lethality + 30% reduction = effective 117.71 for Cunning, enough to do true damage to anyone with no armor items except Rammus or Garen.
Median armor at 18 is only 78, so even after standard armor seals you only need effective 87 which can easily be reached while skipping one of EoN / Duckblade / marks. And that's even before having a Sion or Vi or Jayce or Corki, or something less meta, on your team.

You're still getting flat -15 armor , of course, but that's only better than the -45% bonus you could spend the slot on against Vow, Locket, Tabi, or Zeke's without armor seals, or only against Vow with.

(writing this makes me realize i've been doing MF wrong. But do I drop EoN and its active that lets me finish an ult channel, or Duskblade and literally the only sweeping my team does?)

Diminishing returns is likely to kick in at some point, but I haven't done the math to figure out where that is and I'll trust your math for now.

Also, there was some inspired shitposting on the last page of OT12.

What is all this drama with Lyte.
Riot Lyte was outed by his fiance after he was caught cheating with 3 other women, one a former Riot employee. Now he's suing because his now ex-fiance hasn't returned the engagement ring. The irony is so strong, it reeks. Lyte, the supposed bastion of positivity, the bane of toxic players, had his own chat logs put out there and revealed him to be just as toxic as the people he banned. It's a fitting end to his story.

I only have one thing to say: rekt LUL

Longform story here: https://twitter.com/JackieMButler

EDIT: Seriously, read the longform. It gets way worse.

So, the one part of the OT I didn't draft with Dob was the Naota Blitz comic at the end. That gave me a good laugh haha.

I believe it. He left Riot, a cushiony job, out of the blue, so it matches up with him cheating on another rioter.

Wow. This is creepy as shit. I'm trying to read through, but it's all over the place. Did Lyte leave Riot because of what was going on in his persona life? Or nothing solid one way or other?
