Now that the news is out, what are everyone's predictions about the OP champions and builds in the NURF (I see what you did there) rules set? For easy reference, the game mode modifiers are: +100% mana and energy cost on all abilities +200% cooldown inflation on abilities, items and summoner spells +225 movement speed reduction +200% delay between basic attacks Critical strikes deal 50% of base AD Units critically strike on 150% of attacks Best predictions so far (IMO): 1. Fiddlesticks - has an aura ult and can jump out of hiding with it. W drain is channeled and will last longer since it will take enemies longer to get out of range. 2. Katarina - channeled ability, does not rely on aa or crits, and has resets. 3. Amumu - has an aura, and can double down with itemization like Cinderhulk. Plus tank stats aren't nerfed, which should make them stronger relative to offensive stats. 4. Morgana - Lots of CC, her pool will hit for longer against slowed movement enemies, ult will likely hit for full, resulting in a ton of damage, snare and a stun. 5. Heimer - Dem turrets! Honerable mention: 1. Swain - Channeled Ult that heals - healing is not nerfed which should make it stronger relative to offensive abilities. But will 100% more mana cost be too much? 2. Kalista - jump passive may be really good - but can she itemize attack speed while avoiding crit?

I just posted this in another thread, but I am really looking forward to playing my man {{champion:3}}. * His high base damage on Q means he's going to hit like a truck early on, and skill shots should be much easier to land on slower opponents. * I'm a little worried because healing for his shield is based on number of attacks so the delay on basic attacks hurts a bit, but worst case for the shield is that it adds a ton of resistances. Not sure if minions and monsters attack slower-- if not, we can still heal by walking into a minion wave with Bulwark up. * The recently reduced cooldowns on his E means he's going to be one of the best for buffing his team's move speed, and I think small edges in move speed are going to be super valuable given the more stately pace of the game. * The most important thing, though, is that slower opponents means easier multi-person ults. We just have to be very strategic about when we pull the trigger. I love the emphasis on well-considered strategic play in New Ultra Rapid Fire mode-- this looks to be my kind of game!
I project that the most powerful Nurf champions will be {{champion:14}} {{champion:36}} {{champion:86}} {{champion:74}} {{champion:17}} {{champion:27}} {{champion:53}} {{champion:12}}
Crett
I think {{champion:3}} is looking like a great pick for New Ultra Rapid Fire. I anticipate that longer cooldowns will mean that high base damage is king, and each of his Qs will be that much more impactful.‚Äč I love the idea of having time to carefully plan and aim each of my skillshots! This patch will really elevate the game to the highest level of competition, IMHO. Who are other people's power picks for New Ultra Rapid Fire mode?
What i want to know is, why have the man who killed his master and wants to murder his adopted brother babysit TWINS?!

You've obviously never spent time around two 8 year olds...he's the one who should be afraid.
But if zed makes the mistake of swiping his hand a bit too hard, the shadow will mickick him. If a kid is a bit too close to the shadow.... And the kid is sitting on a window, which is on a skyscraper....

Before we begin, please play this relaxing tune on repeat to stimulate your mind and body in preparation for an incredibly informative read. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=75nsISgqeac Hello, your General Discussion Overlord HateDaddy here with another public service announcement aimed at improving the intellecut of these forums. This is aimed at helping you improve your odds of getting a rioter to post in your thread, the hopes and dreams of every small child when they become a forum browser and poster. It's important to note, this guide helps you understand how you can improve your chances of gaining rioter attenrion and potentially a post, I cannot under any circumstance give you advice that will assuredly lure them in to post. Aside from this information I am about to provide, remember they are all white and live on the west coast so at the very least, you can always make a generic thread about your favorite coffee from Starbucks and you'll likely get a red post. However, this isn't something that gets their attention for a desired topic. Good luck on the forums, summoners! ____________________________ #Critical Steps It's important to follow these steps in some semblance of order. As i stated before, Rioters have displayed the capacity to use free thinking and independent will so they've become a very unpredictable creature. However, using these stats collected from Lyte, these are the best ways to get rioter attention with a strong probability of a red post. Step 1: Addressing Rioters by their appropriate departments This is important. It is a very good method to gain rioter attention by directly addressing a single red. However, asking Morello where the fuck the east coast servers are at is likey not going to get a response from him. His department is titled as I.R.E.L.I.A, better know as the International Reforming Efforts Limiting Irelia's Abilities, or the balance department, fampus for nerfing. And the occasional buffing. Make sure you know which rioter to address for the appropriate topic little Billy, otherwise your chances for getting attention from them are slim. Step 2: Make sure your topic has thorough research with an approachable title and first post. For example, expecting a rioter to post to a thread "lol fk u riot u stupid fks" is pretty unrealistic. If you have any beef with riot and you'd like to express dissatisfaction, the best way to go about this is making a post titled at vaguely mentioning your concerns and then using the OP as a detailed and vivid depiction of what your complaints are. This isn't the best way and remember directly addressing a rioter is ideal, however this way you don't risk getting banned my the mods and their urge to show their mom they have power on the Internet. Step 3: Show why a rioter should take you seriously On a topic with an informative base and a thread aimed at disagreeing with a certain direction by riot, make it clear what separates you from the average poster. If you are a filthy freelo abusing Anivia main and you think she needs buffs for some reason, you should point this out. But realize I will call you a brain damaged child who had cinder blocks dropped on your head as a child for making such a request. But that's not important, what is important is to realize The Red needs to know why they should take you seriously. If you don't, they will continue to sit around in their offices and throw old used Starbucks cups at each other. Step 4: The Last Resort: The cliche troll thread If you are desperate for red attention and don't care about the topic, you can always look to be smited. Ask the rioter why you got chat restricted for 700 games even though you know you're a fucking asshole. But remember this isn't important, what's important is getting publicly smited and thinking this makes you cool for some reason. You can also try baiting them out by making threads such as "I downvote every red I see post," or some silly thread aimed at a few laughs like this. Remember little Tommy, red posts in your threads is pretty much the same thing as graduating from Harvard with a PHD. Your mother will be proud. ______________________ #Questions and Answers Section Q: "but HateDaddy, I really am not that toxic! I was only banned for 6 years and I don't understand why! What the heck? Help me!" Well Little Eric, it's because you're a douche bag and calling your teammates feeding idiots and using racial and homosexual slurs towards them will get you banned. Improve your behavior and perhaps you can get a red post in a more positive light! Q "HateDaddy, I made a thread wanting to get attention from Phreak and it was supposed to be funny. But he didn't respond, what do I do?" Well little Erin, sometimes rioters simply don't respond and that's the chance we take. Phreak in particular is very busy and typically doesn't respond but if you want his attention, make a thread that solves the crisis of receding hairlines with maximum tons of damage. This could work. Good luck! Q "blady facking hell HateDaddy, ur a fooking blady yank wanker n I bet me mum id slap the shit out Ye blady Mouf u dirty yank, get off me boards. Bollocks" A: riot give these guys their own general discussion back please. We've got enough brain damage around here. Q: "Thanks for the help HateDaddy! When I get a rioter to post in my thread, I'm going to credit you!" A: Ah that won't be necessary! Keep up the hard work and claim your rewards for yourself, young man! It's important to enjoy the thugs you've worked for and a red post is better than winning the lottery. Good luck! ___________________ This concludes this guide. As always, feel free to ask questions and I'll address them accordingly. Thanks again for your time and potential posts Summoners, good luck!

LOL LOOK AT THIS HATEDADDY GUY, THINKING HE'D GET A REDPOS--- crap. Oh..hi.
After pressing the "Launch" button on the LoL patcher, my computer will come to the BSOD with the error in the title. I'm not really sure what else to say about this. Aside from that, if I do make it past the login screen, the game will crash in the middle of an ongoing game. The screen will appear corrupted and my computer will become unresponsive. Attached are a dxdiag and a picture of the 'corrupted' screen. Thanks for your help!
PentaDoor
Hey Pentadoor. That kind of issue point to hardware/driver failure on your Graphics card. I looked at your DxDiag and it seems your graphics card doesn't have the proper drivers installed. That being said, I recommend you run a clean install of your drivers. These steps will show you how: - Download the drivers for your card [here](http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/83082/en-us)! - When running the installer, please run the Custom Install option and make sure 'Perform a Clean Installation' is checked - After the installation is complete, restart your PC. - Open League and test this in a custom game. If that does not help resolve your issue, you may want to contact your Manufacturer, in this case Lenovo. This may be happening due to hardware failure, which means it's a problem that reinstalling your drivers cannot resolve. Please let me know if you have any questions!
she seems pretty balanced right now if anything shes pretty strong too but idk about being op or anything just kinda curious the reasoning behind it.
Chespin2013
We're looking to shift a bit of power from early game damage to mid game onwards mobility (hence lower Q ratio, but shorter re-use CD on tunnels by E rank).

Step 1: Wait until he misses a hook. This will happen sometime because thresh's mana costs are a joke so he can throw out hooks willy nilly. Step 2: Say "Is that madlife" Works every time, guaranteed or your money back.
Hatch RawerBeryl
Thresh counter-step 1: Max hook first, intentionally hook a minion instead of enemy, hook them while they're typing. ggez feed your ADC. Edit: oh and if you toss in a flay right after wards to give your hook a bit more time to come off CD, it delays their typing, so when they DO start typing, your hook's off CD.
It would be a nice change for Bard to have an indicator (similar to how sightstone shows how many wards are placed x/3) for the number of shrines on the map. One immediate effect would be Bard's early game. If Bard places 3 shrines in the jungle to help the jungler clear, then the indicator would notify the Bard when he could start placing shrines in lane.

Seems useful. I'll bounce this on to Rabid Llama (who did the gameplay design for Bard and is doing initial post release follow up work on him too).

You know, I was just thinking about how Civ 5 is just *to damned fast paced* for me. Thank *goodness* NURF mode is coming. My blood pressure couldn't take much more.
Alright, very much appreciated! Should I make a new post or comment on the boards post you linked to touch base with them?
Bakryu
I suspect you'd have more luck with a fresh post, given posts 2 months old on Boards don't get viewed much. That's a guess though, can't speak for certain about how/when Ironstylus and the other art folks forum surf.

>To me, safety denotes a place where Players of all backgrounds don't feel as though extraneous circumstances have any sort of sway over their ability to express themselves. Fair point. Do you feel this is the main thing that's needed for people (both players and Rioters) to feel more comfortable about participating in the platform? >Not so obvious ways this can surface >overall familiarity with the community (i.e.; new players vs. vets). Riot Plz New Player Forum Mostly kidding, though the Boards platform is not very welcoming to new players currently with the ~level 7 posting cap and no dedicated section for them. >Perhaps it's because of my immediate experience, but I don't associate safety with sterility, I actually see safe environments being more vibrant and welcoming :). I think we're seeing eye to eye now, thanks for outlining your thoughts. I guess I'm a little concerned with it because of the original Boards mentality of content over creator. To me the removal of custom Riot avatars, smaller avatars and badges in general, the requirement to hover in order to see titles and badges, etc. contributed a bit to homogeneity on this platform, and I just don't want to see the focus on safety impact any other social features.

> Do you feel this is the main thing that's needed for people (both players and Rioters) to feel more comfortable about participating in the platform? I feel like it's one step. Hostility and hyperbole discourages both Player and Rioter engagement. Personally, I feel like an overall lift in tone will improve both Player to Player engagement and Player to Rioter engagement. > Mostly kidding, though the Boards platform is not very welcoming to new players currently with the ~level 7 posting cap and no dedicated section for them. It's valid feedback. Our challenge is obviously protecting the boards from malicious attacks (spambots creating a schload of level 1 accounts and flooding the Boards more than they do), but if you have suggestions for lowering that barrier to entry, please share! General board structure is also something that's on the table right now, so dedicated sections are something we can, and should, discuss. > To me the removal of custom Riot avatars, smaller avatars and badges in general, the requirement to hover in order to see titles and badges, etc. contributed a bit to homogeneity on this platform, and I just don't want to see the focus on safety impact any other social features. Customizable player experience is something I am personally keen on. An example: personally, I'm not a fan of the darker color scheme here and would like something to go with a lighter look and feel. Things that allow individual players to tweak their boards experience would be, IMHO, a win. While I'm not an engineer, I will certainly be an advocate for said options. Sufficed to say, there's no shortage of ideas around here, both from you guys and Rioters. Ultimately it comes down to hours in the day and coders/designers/producers to make it happen.
Honestly I think Lissandra should get the leadership over Freljord? Why,you ask? She is smart and she is planning the comeback of the watchers for centuries(that is a very long time btw).The Frostguard city may hold some secrets we are not aware now.Maybe Lissandra has some more secret allies. Ashe got to rule Avarosan tribe in the age of 18(I think). Maybe she is talented but she isn't 500 years old and still doesn't have enough experience.Avarosa did gave Ashe bow & arrow but she didn't gave her knowledge and secrets of Freljord.Ashe even thinks that Liss is an ally which gives Lissandra an advantage. And now Sejuani.Her way of getting to the control of Freljord is possible but still a little bit unreal right now.Hers tribe is located in very cold and inhospitable land which makes it even harder to conqueror the Freljord by force. Even if Ashe and Sejuani unite to fight against evil the Watchers could launch the sneak attack and get an early advantage. But if Demacia and Noxus realize the danger of this Lissandra might get into trouble. And last but not least POROS. Yep you heard me.They are just waiting and looking,learning moves from champions that give them treats that make them grow and multiply. Maybe they are the only one that can stop the watchers with their cuteness.Who knows. This is first time I am posting a thread so I maybe made a few mistakes.Give me your thoughts on it and give me reasons why you think I am right or wrong.Thanks for reading. EDIT:As this is first time I posted a thread I am very happy with response.I will take all the critiques this thread got and try to make something better in future

Lissandra should win leadership over the Freljord because there aren't any heroes and good always loses. And because she's my favorite. And awesome. And my main. More skins plz.
>we need to focus on the why and the how of this: why is it happening...well, we have a pretty clear idea on that Out of curiosity, what is the why and the how of this from Riot's perspective? >To wax a bit more philosophical, the current tone on the boards leans towards combative with a side of whimsy. I believe it's on us to find ways to surface productive conversations, like this one, without curtailing the ability of Players and Rioters to jump in on the whimsy. I have my own tribal biases and whatnot, but it seems to me there is a lot of focus on how Rioters can interact best with players and vice versa rather than facilitating player-player interaction. I mention this a lot, but this community is one of the most developer-focused I have ever seen. This is good in that there is lots of back and forth communication, but it's bad in the sense that the players may never really form a community of their own that can support itself. Is this something you have noticed? >I don't believe that the two are mutually exclusive of each other. In order to draw people who create amazing communities, your leaders, creators, and advocates, you need to ensure that there is a safe environment in which they can grow and flourish. Oh absolutely, and I didn't mean to insinuate they aren't. I just wonder whether it's the right approach to go for safety rather than invitation. >In my experience, a safe environment = a welcoming environment and will, by nature, encourage passionate engagement. Analogy! **Environment #1** The DMV, with folding metal chairs and a white tile floor, a police officer keeping watch in case you need him/her. **Environment #2** A colorful carpeted room filled with beanbag chairs, can call the police if you need it. Granted, this is a really biased portrayal, but in which environment would you rather have a party? Environment #2 is technically less safe, but it's far more inviting and encourages positive behavior just by its innate nature. What I'm getting at is that safety isn't enough to draw people in on its own, especially people who focus on creating amazing communities. A safe but sterile community can directly discourage participation, whereas a volatile but inviting community becomes compelling for those interested in participation. It's important to ensure there is a safe environment, but in my personal opinion it's more important to ensure there is a *compelling* environment. >I'm more interested in affecting positive social change on a large scale than I am in a police state. 100% agreed. Just keep in mind, the vast majority of us want this too. The Boards platform can be a scary place, but it's an interesting exercise to consider the mechanics of this community in comparison to desire thereof. All things considered there is very little player-player interaction happening right now that reinforces the community and makes us stronger as a whole, and it's fascinating to consider whether this might be due to people feeling unsafe or feeling unwelcome. >We should also be open to the concept of evaluating things like the Universal Rules from time to time. Definitely. For the most part the rules should be pretty obvious to the majority (don't be asshats, victory!), but some of the nuance may indeed change over time.
Daen
> Analogy! Ahhh, yes I see the differentiation you're making now. To me, safety denotes a place where Players of all backgrounds don't feel as though extraneous circumstances have any sort of sway over their ability to express themselves. Obvious ways that this can surface are sexual orientation, age, gender, religion and race. Not so obvious ways this can surface are in game skill levels, learning disabilities, and overall familiarity with the community (i.e.; new players vs. vets). Perhaps it's because of my immediate experience, but I don't associate safety with sterility, I actually see safe environments being more vibrant and welcoming :). YMMV of course.
So I'm going to be the bad guy here and ask when you are going to do something about segregating/dividing the community? I as a player should not have to rely more on sites like S@20 to see what The developers are saying more than I do the red tracker. If there is no plans to make your own website the primary source of information for your players then why were the forums changed into Boards specifically to feel like Reddit so that the reddit community comes over here. It didnt work they stayed at reddit and you lost many people who posted frequently when you made the transition after telling us you wouldnt force it. Why has there been zero work done to try to make the red tracker into a source for all Developer information? I shouldn't have to go to reddit to give feedback on a idea that affects the game. The least you could do is have a connection so when a Rioter posts on Reddit it shows up on the red tracker so that those on the forums can contribute at the very least. I know some people like their circle jerks over on reddit and thats fine but unless you don't care about a section of your community you need to do something and fast. More and more im seeing things over on reddit from developers and by the time i and many others even learn about it its too late as the dev couldnt care less about any feedback after the initial few hours.
Corvic Maractis
Hi Corvic, I agree that we need to work on improving how we surface Rioter engagement. We have our own ideas, and many of them are similar to what you discussed above, but any additional suggestions are welcome. I wasn't around for the initial design of the Red Tracker. I'll bring this subject up with the Boards team so I can understand their reasoning around the current design. Off the top of my head, I can see some inherent risk in features linking out to third party sites (not to say Reddit is dangerous), but a thorough understanding would help.
So... why hasn't it happened? I know it's not your department, but seriously, shouldn't the skins people have done it by now?
Yousosmart
I'm trying! I'm trying! Seriously though, they are hard at work on more awesome skins than I'm pitching. I mean, DJ Sona took a loooong time from when I first heard of the pitch and its pretty damn worth. I still hope it might come to pass.

Not intentionally! I have been pretty swamped with work on the Boards and related platforms recently and unfortunately one of the first things to go has been spending time on Boards Feedback responding to stuff.
of course she dodges the mana reduction request on the post. Atleast respond to his request, not just ignore it
BakedLotion
Sorry, wasn't trying to dodge anything... the weekend just happened is all.
If you were forming another band with League champions (e.g. Pentakill), what would be its name, who would be in it, and what would they play? My idea is: **VOID PISTOLS** featuring Vel'Koz on drums, Kog'Maw on guitar, Kha'Zix on bass, Cho'Gath on piano, and Rek'Sai on vocals. I'm looking forward to seeing what bands you come up with! Cheers, Brandon

I want a garage rock duo named **KIll Lane** made up of Lucian and Leona.
It could also be that this is how she looks when she doesnt have too pretend to be the super happy girl.

I've been petitioning for an dark and twisty/evil version of Lux since i got here, so you know, the last 4 years... we'll see.
>That means our own moderation practices I very much hope we will be involved in this discussion, as it has been very difficult in the past for the community to have a definitive impact on moderation policy outside of GD. I'll touch on this below, but moderation is one of the cornerstones of what makes a discussion medium inviting. I'm sure the teams are aware of this, but it's *incredibly* important to make sure participation is encouraged; current moderation practices really don't facilitate this, and in some cases actively discourage people from participating in the platform. >the overall tone and sentiment of the boards How would you define the tone and sentiment of the Boards currently, and what directions are you interested in exploring? >how safe of a place it is for both Players and Rioters to engage in. To me, it's really important that future work on the platform is viewed from the perspective of being *welcoming* rather than safe. Amazing communities aren't built from the mindset of safety, they are created through passion and engagement. Communities are brought together by being encouraged to participate, having tools to engage with each other, and having clear ways to reach out in regards to the bigger picture. Adding police officers to a bad environment might make it safer, but encouraging a positive community through social tools like schools and infrastructure within that environment is far more likely to effect sustainable change. You may need to increase safety (buff the police force) to encourage that growth, but the focus is on social interaction rather than specifically focusing on increased safety.
Daen
> I very much hope we will be involved in this discussion, as it has been very difficult in the past for the community to have a definitive impact on moderation policy outside of GD. I know that D'Artaganon and WookieCookie are both keen on having this conversation with y'all, so I won't tread on their toes with that subject. We all have some thoughts on moderation philosophies and that's an active discussion internally. > How would you define the tone and sentiment of the Boards currently, and what directions are you interested in exploring? To be blunt, right now the Boards are flooded with "Riot Plz" and that's drowning out most other conversation. It's understandable, but we need to focus on the why and the how of this: why is it happening...well, we have a pretty clear idea on that, and how can we address it in a sustainable way? We could answer every "Riot Plz" and they wouldn't slow down, so how can we provide an experience that doesn't feel dominated by these posts. To wax a bit more philosophical, the current tone on the boards leans towards combative with a side of whimsy. I believe it's on us to find ways to surface productive conversations, like this one, without curtailing the ability of Players and Rioters to jump in on the whimsy. Final thought; I think we need to promote an environment where speaking to each other like fellow human beings is encouraged and celebrated. There are lots of levers to pull and dials to turn on this, and we all need to be open to what those might be. > To me, it's really important that future work on the platform is viewed from the perspective of being welcoming rather than safe. Amazing communities aren't built from the mindset of safety, they are created through passion and engagement. I don't believe that the two are mutually exclusive of each other.

We're on the same page here Daen. I'm more interested in affecting positive social change on a large scale than I am in a police state. We should also be open to the concept of evaluating things like the Universal Rules from time to time. As our community grows and matures, it's needs will change.
Glad you like it, though I just found it on Deviantart. I didn't draw it. And seriously, Lux really does need a cost reduction on her Lucent Singularity. 130 mana is so expensive for something that gets outclassed in damage by pretty much every other mage.
Yousosmart
So i don't have anything to do with champ design or balance, but yes, as a Lux main with a mana-hungry playstyle, I fully agree with this statement. Actually, as a Lux main i wish we would cripple Zed and Kat beyond any recognizably, and I will figure out my mana issues from there (morellonominominomicon).

This sounds like it has the potential to be awesome for the boards as a whole, so I hope everything works out well :D Does this mean we can soon know more about player developed sub-communities, or potentially community moderated content? Both of these tools would be huge assets for GD specifically at least, if placed in the right hands.
SilentNightSona
Both are things we're keen on. The question we have to ask ourselves re: both of those features is: "Is the community healthy enough to enact it?" Right now, I would argue no. There's an imperative, maybe just from a personal sense from the NA Player Relations team, to focus on improving the overall environment here on the boards. That means our own moderation practices, the overall tone and sentiment of the boards, and how safe of a place it is for both Players and Rioters to engage in. We need to plant the seeds, providing fertile ground for the Boards to grow more healthy and to give features like you're talking about greater opportunity to succeed. Jumping in a meeting now. Will check on this thread in a bit :).
>The intrepid team that's been working on the Boards beta is working with each of the regions to start addressing our particular needs. This might be a dumb question, but does this mean that OCE, for example, would be able to drive certain aspects of the Boards platform such as user groups once this transition is complete? >Our ultimate goal is to involve all of you in the discussion and the process of leveling up the Boards community Looking forward to it.
Daen
> This might be a dumb question, but does this mean that OCE, for example, would be able to drive certain aspects of the Boards platform such as user groups once this transition is complete? No dumb questions :). It means that we're focusing on the needs that each individual region might have when it comes to the boards community. It's not to say that NA, EUW or OCE would have a tacitly different experience, but there may be nuances that make more sense in different communities. To me, as someone who's worked with global communities for much of my career, it's refreshing to have the luxury of focusing on one region's needs as relate to the big picture.

First of all, thank you for posting here and keeping us updated. It means a lot to the boards community as a whole to know the direction this will be taking :) Secondly, will Tamat still be working with the boards team? Though there were a few misunderstandings in the past, I know he has his heart in the right place and wants these boards to succeed just as much as the rest of us, if not more. I'm still trying to get in contact with him about the GD changes as a whole, but so far things seem to be going in the right direction, and a lot of that is likely his doing. Last of all, will some of boards management be left up to the team that built it? It seems like giving access of the management tools to the people that built them would be a good idea, but maybe I could be a bit biased :P
SilentNightSona
Tamat has been working with us on a smooth transition of the day to day management of the boards, so he's definitely been involved. Holistically, the team that's been working on the boards is going to be shifting into focusing more on the software development aspect of the platform, taking feedback from the different regions and players and focusing on delivering features from a user experience angle.

One of my hobbies, besides playing League of Legos is to play with music. Gnar's my favorite champion so I made a tropical house inspired track in his honor :^)

I planned on making him into a game where he collects chimes in a top-down scroller, but I ran out of inspiration.

VERY Cool
ok, so my friends and i were talking and we thought it would be cool to create a pen and paper RPG (for starters) version of league of legends. Using the idea of pre tournament or what the champions do in between games, or playing through champions lore in the game. but i'm not sure how many other players like that idea, or who to contact with in Riot to see if i can get this idea to take flight.
mitsaduki
yes please
A friend of mine decided to start a small show about different thing happening in and around the league of legends community. Check it out and he's always open for some feedback!
Gravitony
I like the ticker on the bottom! "Wards claimed a cheating device by Bronze players" <~classic. This was funny and entertaining to watch. He should probably try to swivel in his chair a bit less in future episodes, it's a bit distracting.
Hey all, this is my first post here, and first League of Legends fanart. I have always been a big fan of {{champion:11}} . He was my first main, and even to this day {{champion:11}} and {{champion:62}} are my top two favorites. I also love how the two Wuju Style warriors are connected in lore. I was aiming for something like their training grounds - the master and pupil battling it out. I started this as a doodle in class, so I drew from memory and totally didn&#039;t get their armors and weapons right. Later when I brought it in Photoshop I decided to stick to my own designs. As long as they are recognizable I will be happy. I hope you all like it. Update: As promised, [here](http://i.imgur.com/rFxRSsi.jpg) is a high-res version.

This is so cool! The green background really makes Yi pop and Wu's placement does the same for him. I think you could define the sword a little more, bu ti love this! Great energy.
> It may seem like these past few months development has slowed down from a player perspective, but behind the scenes we're all hard at work on the team - especially with the recent adoption of boards in other regions. It definitely does seem like development has slowed, yes, and not just for the technical side (looking at you, Boards layout and guidelines). I'm sure this isn't the case (and you have confirmed this!), but there's definitely that kind of vibe; it's less about what's actually being worked on and more about the community's perception thereof. To that end... Would it be feasible for there to be a rough Boards changelog, periodically? I understand that what's being fixed is probably super boring, but personally I would prefer to see that information rather than empirically assume there is no progress. It wouldn't need to be super specific or even all that regular, but an occasional bump of "here's what we're working on, here's what we've done since last time" etc. could go a long way towards bringing everyone into the loop.

It's one thing for the team to work 8+ hours a day each, but an entirely different thing to be seen working to be sure!

I view all words and *statistics* (italics because of the way statistics are often used) as a lense. A perspective. Language and numbers, to me, are a cryptic poem you can engineer to incite just about any reaction you want if you know how. That's why it is so important to draw your own conclusions and do your own research on just about anything you care about. Never just *take someones word for it*. We're all humans (and/or dragons, of course), and are all capable of a certain degree of wisdom. My philosophy is that no matter how much I know, or how much I research, there is always a chance I could be wrong. Gotta keep that box open :D
As always, we appreciate you coming in to chat with us (especially since it seems like you're the only one lately from the Boards team). That being said, this comment concerns me a bit: >When we revisit this topic, the feedback definitely helps I know this isn't necessarily something you can speak to and I'm reading between the lines a bit, but I feel like it's somewhat important to mention. Automatic quoting is something that is essentially nondebatable, and it has been suggested pretty much ever since Chronological View has existed. It's basically impossible to have parity between Discussion and Chronological if there are no trackable markers between the two modes, and to me it's one of the most important changes for the health of the platform overall. It's great that our feedback is present in these internal discussions, but it's strange that it can take nine months or more for these things to take effect. There are quite a few feature requests that have been consistently suggested by the community for over a year, many of which are still either in infancy or not being worked on at all. I understand priorities and such, but it has been a solid few months since the last content update on this platform and many of these requests are seemingly simple things like the ability to underline or align text.

Honestly if I weren't working on the boards I hypothesize I'd probably have a similar view of things. The boards are really cool in the sense that it's a live service, but with being a live service there are an endless supply of things to work on/tackle. Sometimes emergent issues, sometimes bugs that are known and of course ones that haven't been discovered yet. It may seem like these past few months development has slowed down from a player perspective, but behind the scenes we're all hard at work on the team - especially with the recent adoption of boards in other regions. My favorite thing about software development in general is and always has been adding things that people want - and if that's ALL that software development were life would be perfect! I really don't want it to sound like a cop-out answer ala **"hey guys we are doing stuff behind the scenes"**, but if I can elaborate at all I'll be happy to! I wish you could see my desktop. I have a little notebook filled with scribblings from the community that sits by my keyboard. Obviously that's not a promise to push in every idea ever posted, but you guys are important to me! Anything I can do to help out more than noticed, just let me know :)
The only people I ever see responding to Boards Feedback is Frosthaven and Bear Hat Alice. It&#039;s pretty much just Frosthaven talking to us about what&#039;s up with the boards and trying to get our problems fixed. Issues with quoting? Frosthaven&#039;s on it. We wanted usergroups on the boards? Frosthaven got them for us. Problems with notifications? Guess who? Brohaven already has a fix for us. You know what he did before he got hired at Riot? He was the primary coder and head of the Forum Enhancement Kit 2.0 project. Something League players on the old boards had wanted for such a long time but RIot never gave them. FEK 1.0 had avatars and that was great, but FEK 2.0 brought so, so much more. Those features are things Frosthaven did for us even when he wasn&#039;t working at Riot, he still cared enough to do that much for this community (not to mention all the tournaments and events that they held). He seems to be all over this board helping us and I know he&#039;s all over GD being just a completely great guy. You know what I don&#039;t see though? The other guys on the boards team communicating with us or helping us out as much as Frost has, so thank you, Frosthaven. You&#039;re an amazing Rioter. Probably one of the ones I like the most and you&#039;ve really shown to *us* that you deserve your position at Riot. Keep up the good work, man. They couldn&#039;t have hired anyone else better.

Howdy folks! Interestingly enough, the responsibility for the management of the North American Boards is currently transitioning. The intrepid team that's been working on the Boards beta is working with each of the regions to start addressing our particular needs. When it comes to the North American Boards, we're going to be sharing responsibility for the management of this platform between the North American Player Support Team (folks like Riot D'Artagnan and WookieCookie) and the North American Player Relations Team (ADillonMostDirty and myself). Just last week we had a day long workshop to discuss the current state of the NA Boards; where they are now, what's on tap, and how we can get them to where they *can* be. An important part of this will be sharing the discussion had in that meeting (it's a bit of messy list right now), getting your thoughts on our thoughts, listening to your opinions on our takes, and, importantly, getting your individual thoughts. Our ultimate goal is to involve all of you in the discussion and the process of leveling up the Boards community, and this first step will start with some well thought out and organized transparency. TLDR: Watch for some active collaboration between the team responsible for the NA Boards and you in the not so distant future.
I was reading a few things you commented on hinting about rough time frames on a few champion reworks. For example Poppy and GP hopefully making it out this season. Is there any indication as to where either season wise or month wise we can get and EXTREMELY rough timeframe on Taric&#039;s rework. Sorry to ask again I am just a big Taric fan and would love to seem him in his outrageous glory up to snuff visually and gameplay wise with the other supports. Thanks in advance for any information you can share.

I'm not sure on Taric sorry. His timeline's much more defined by figuring out his visual and thematic details than gameplay. Figuring out how to perserve the key bits of his personality and tone, while upgrading his visual quality, is one of the key things that'll define when his update comes out. Improving his kit by contrast's simpler. Ironstylus has talked about the art side of things a bit previously e.g. http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/gEKAkdFJ-ironstylus-hows-taric-going and will be able to offer more details than I can.
I'll check with a couple of people who've done work on Eve and get back to you about this one. While I'm at it, since we're talking about Eve anyway, I'll get their thoughts on how the 5.6 changes have gone as well.

So, looks like the team's a little split on the ult's damage paradigm, with whether or not Eve should be able to get a kill outside of her Q range the focus of the discussion. Will get back to you folks if we come to a consensus that'll result in any changes to the ult. As far as the 5.6 changes go those have been less powerful than expected. Current thinking is that we'll put the stacking movement speed back on.
Could FEK add an option to simply display the notification total = &quot;Total - 1&quot; or some such? Because the issue is it&#039;s always displaying 1, so just have fek reduce it by 1. Boom, issue band-aid&#039;d.

@wicked lulu why u do dis. I was just getting close and comfortable to my number 4 and now it's gone forever :(
Seriously!? I have been bringing this up since the begining of this Beta. I know i am not your favorite poster when it comes to the boards format, but there have been many other posters, much more productive than I am that have been asking this as well! Chronological needs AUTO QUOTE FROM NESTED REPLIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is broken with out it. This one simple fix would negate my biggest problem with the Leddit format as will many other old school GD&#039;rs that can not stand reading in the nested lay out. If there has been an announcement in such regards then please do tell. Even your goldem child Graff can get behind this thread. Why is Chrono being left in the dust? Also looking at you Pendragon.

Just posting so you know I'm not ignoring you! I'm personally a huge fan of chronological and I would consider myself a heavy user of it (maybe im just old and set in my ways). There is definitely a lot of discussion surrounding how best to support both chronological and nested discussion types in the most healthy way possible (where neither viewing mode fights each other). Anyways, thanks for the feedback! When we revisit this topic, the feedback definitely helps :)
