JokerNexus
!!! Awesome!
I want to get a new champ, but I am unsure of which one to get. The role doesn't really mind except mid. I'm not particularly good there, but suggestions are welcome for it as well.
AirxRudant
I kind of love thresh. He's tons of fun. And its Halloween so why not get the ghosty skeleton chain dude? :)
First, I'm in Bronze. Don't take the 'Bronzelord' thing personally. :P Second, smartcasting. Smartcasting is amazeballs and you should use it. My Braum is easily 25% more effective with Stand Behind Me and Unbreakable smartcasted. Thresh's Dark Passage can now just be thrown. Veigar can cast Dark Matter fast enough that Fizz can't escape Event Horizon before it lands. Ryze can spam like he lives in Nigeria. Don't set everything to smartcast. I like having to manually target Teemo's Blinding Dart. Braum's Glacial Fissure, Thresh's Flay, and Veigar's Event Horizon are things you'll probably want to manually adjust. But smartcasting will improve your response times, making you a better player. It's tricky to get used to, but worth it in the end.
SecretAgentHulk
I've been playing since January of 2011. I just switched to smartcasting on everything about... 4 months ago? I'll never go back. Getting used to it took a little bit but I love it now! Don't worry about fumbling around a bit while you get used to it.. you'll get it!

But I guess that leads to a mildly off-topic discussion. His argument is valid. If you never intentionally lose in solo q, then you have 4 chances of having a teammate intentionally lose, and 5 chances to have an opponent intentionally lose. Try actually refuting the argument next time.
MidEvilKnight3k
I will say though - the pool of players is large enough that there are probably a few people who get SO unlucky that maybe they're a couple of tiers below where their real skill is - but that's a 1/100000 or 1/1000000 thing

Urdnot Entar
Ah I see the point that you're trying to make.
After watching worlds, I understand that ALL players should buy wards. I'm in ~1500 MMR, gold V (but i don't really play ranked). How do I convince my mid, top, and adc to buy wards instead of just leaving it to the lee sin jungler and support to buy wards. 6 wards isn't enough. I sometimes kind of wished that I could play support again and place 10 wards on the map at once. I want to play with people that know how to buy wards.
shadowstepninja
I think the big thing to remember is that you can't force anybody to do anything. As skill levels improve, people will ward more often on their own. If nobody else on your team is warding, you can try to *politely* ask people to throw a ward down in some key areas. Don't call anybody out specifically... say something like "Hey can someone throw a ward down in tri brush?" or something like that. The last thing you want to do is make another player feel like they're being singled out. If still nobody is warding... just do your best. Use your wards in the most vital areas and do your best!

The solutions we pursue must be ones that scale to a player-base of 67 million+ people. We have a significant amount of people-power dedicated to making this experience better from many angles. -47 million people cuz smurf accounts lol

With the new audio engine, are there any plans on adding stings/cues for certain event flags? For instance, would individual players hear a rise in action as they are about to enter combat with a Champion, is there a trigger for Baron/Dragon, etc.? No is a perfectly acceptable answer, just curious!
EMOFRATPARTY
We've spent a lot of thought on what would make the best musical experience when you play, and part of that is reacting to the progress of the game and the environment that the player's champion is in. I think it's about finding a healthy balance between supporting game play, giving emotional context and also having a certain interest and musical character in the music itself. And with that in mind, we just saw down as a music team and tried to compose some neat musics!
So, I'm not sure if this was ever brought up and I've never written on the forums before, but I thought it would be absolutely amazing if Riot would actually produce and release a full League of Legends Soundtrack on the open market to maybe purchase in CD/mp3 form. If they ever did, I would be more than happy to purchase it.
TenchiHikari
In the works! ;)
Just wondering.
Raleko
Yes, the updated Summoner's Rift will indeed have new music. The upcoming login screen music will reveal a little bit of it, and we also used some of it in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_e_N4WpqH5o
no i am not Russian. I am Czech and I am quite a lot disturbed. This is similiar situation that was before WW2 when Hitler took our Sudetenland. When I think about it I feel really insecure. Putin is doing what he wants and europe just watch everything go to hell. We might be in need of some good old american bombing pretty soon. Jokes aside europe grew lazy and comfortable so we are easy prey.

Do you think it's possible he will stop after acquiring the land he has now? Putin might be a bit egostical, but it feels incredibly unlikely that he would push further.
Do you think it would be possible, or reasonable to give Mini-Gnar 5 more range per level? He would still start with the lowest AA range, but grow into a reasonable range faster, and fit more with his character by giving him a strong (but not best, like his movespeed) AA range at max level. Considering it's his Kiting skills that end strong and his Tank skills that stay weak, I'm not sure why his AA range was made to be so low through an entire game. Basically it would improve his playability without damaging his matchups as he'd still start lowest and end higher. Also, have you considered making Ryze's abilities blocked by creeps, in a similar way to Lulu's Pix, rather than cut his Mana damage? No more free harass and he'd still get to build in his unique way.
Nagoh Shan
It would be a pretty substantial rework to make Ryze a skillshot character. That might scare off his current audience, too. Do feel like we could make his fantasy of a rapid fire mage more fun that way, but considering the characters we still have yet to rework, I am pretty confident that there's more important champions to do first.
I could use some help digging more into Akali's relation with Zed. Most theories lead to Akali's being Zed student at first, trying to find why she turned on him.

> I could use some help digging more into Akali's relation with Zed. Most theories lead to Akali's being Zed student at first, trying to find why she turned on him. Uh, I don't know... I always thought Akali joined the dojo after Zed rebelled.

Runic Blessing - is really strong compared to the raw gold value of the other masteries. It's not *consistently* useful, but I'm sure that's something we'll look at when we do another mastery pass. The raw value of what you described is pretty insane - but fortunately few shielder types build Defensive tree. Still... 10% additional shield is like... equivalent of +140 ap on an endgame Orriana. (math estimated) Auto level up - I don't feel like this is really that much of a feature. There's some amount of mastery in knowing which skills to level - and more importantly, some champions have alternate orders that matter. (Not all do, I'll admit that) Boot Enchantment - that discourages melee attackers and makes ranged combat very easy to win. Seems way too strong. Even if it had a cooldown as an enchantment... making a slippery champion even more slippery is very, very powerful. It counters the whole enemy team. Fav. Game mode - I really like the TT Hexakill. It hasn't gotten stale for me yet.
Any news coming for Cassiopea soon? She feel a bit clunky and her damage number are pretty low, not that i don't like the way the rework went, but i feel she could use of some power up :/ Any comment about it ?
OrganicT
Sorry, I don't. I tried to play her a ton a month ago... but I had horrible latency issues and lost most of my games. Stall teams aren't quite as common as they used to be - and thats where she seems to thrive.
Oh, you know. just playing league. Attempting to recconect bug at least 5-28 times a game. Looking for a riot response in help and support, 18 days since last Red response on the issue. In the dark. Y'know. the usual stuff. maybe you can help?
Phanta Flavor
Oh geez, I don't know. That's frustrating though. Where were you trying to get help? Did you try running this to figure out the type of connection problem? http://netalyzr.icsi.berkeley.edu/
I need help to stop Putin. By the power invested in you, nerf him please.
Wullf
Hmmmm... Perhaps we can have an Ab-off contest... yeah, this is why I'm not in politics. Are you a Russian native? What's your opinion on the situation over there?
Oh yeah. can you tell me why there was a huge lag spike around 5-7 pm? i you could, i would apreciate it :D couldn't help team and they were lagging bad also...
weihe123
I don't know, but you're not alone. I wish I was more specialized to tell you what was going on.
Music in champ select can't be turned off in champ select. Wtf.
The AFK Farmer
This is a huge pet peeve of mine too. It makes me cry when the music plays over my team strategizing on skype.
Why does everyone hate Master Yi mid?
TehNACHO
Because the lack of ranged pressure plus his extremely hit or miss snowball style means that you are leaving your team without AoE CC (a common mid trait) at very high risk of being countered (armor) with very minimal gank potential, unless your team compensated by playing CC jungle (tanks - not popular in current meta) or double support (also not popular).
ok now for real. do you plan to do another rework or champ design in the near future. and how much do I have to pay you to get me a job in riot?
Wullf
Oh man, you're going to pay ME to work here? Uhm.... I totally have some bugs you could fix, but I have to deny all knowledge when security asks why you're carrying my red backpack around though. I did a little work on Yorick lately, but I handed it off to the really awesome guys that did Sion and Soraka - because frankly, I think they do amazing work and I can't wait to see where they take him. More heads guided by a common vision is better than what a single person can do alone. Otherwise, I mostly just wander around helping out other designers where I can. I generally tend to be at my best helping a lot of people out. (Or so I think...)
EDIT: Prefacing this with an edit of: sorry if this comes across as another 'pining for a rioters comment' post: I sort of read the thread as being a "Hey, anything I can do to help with anything?" sort of thing, when you might have meant it as "Hey, what's going on in your life that you want to talk about?" thread. So yeah... sorry about that. And the wall of text... should apologize for that too... --- Kind of wondering where you (Or whoever's working on balance) think Gnar's power is compared to other champs, or if it'll be best to wait until the preseason changes get out before determining anything: Either way, having won all but 2-3 games with him, I'm not in a position to deny that he might be overtuned. I'm sort of wondering how a passive like Soraka's PBE passive would work on Gnar: When in mini form, he'd get 20% reduced bonus Armor/MR (May or may not be converted into another stat). --- EDIT: Also, and again I'm not sure if this is something you can help with, but how would you consider building Soraka? In the past I've tried a more Ap-Centric support build (Still getting sightstone and a gold gen item, of course), but I don't think I've had any success with her in a normal game, outside of maybe 1 game. I'm thinking maybe I should try a more resistance focused build, but I'm not sure. --- I don't know; can't think of anything more to talk about, at least not league related that is also within your specific department, but if I think of anything else I'd want to bring up/talk about, I'll either edit this post or make a response. (Outside of your department, an option for the Boards to display search results chronologically would be very much appreciated)

Is it ok to assume that you'll be pushing the new summoner's rift live during the pre-season? Also, I haven't been seeing a lot of {{item:3504}} in the rift, any idea what's going on there/if it needs some work? Or is there a particular support I should try to build it on? Anyways, keep up the good work ;)

I'm not exactly sure on the timing, but I hope so! The new froggie camps just don't quite look right on the old map. (Read: At all. Read: WTF, where is my new art already. Read: Send help. ) I'm curious - what do you do?
A tad sad. Got a PG278Q but was suffering an apparent widespread issue where in motion half the red led's dim down so it creates a checkered effect (very noticeable in League). I'm being offered a refund instead of a fix so I assume that means all monitors suffer form this and there currently is no fix meaning I miss out on what is otherwise a pretty amazing screen. Kinda a 1st world problems issue but I was excited and just couldn't wait for this monitor for almost a year and after experiencing 2560x1440 144hz Gsync you just can't go back. A tad anticlimactic. :( On the plus side been playing Sonic Generations and Metal Gear Rising, both being pretty awesome! :D

After looking for work, among game companies and normal software ones, I finally got a job! My dream is to become a technical designer like you Xelnath, but it seems for starters I'll have to settle as a software engineer at least so I can move. I looked for work for almost half a year, and after being turned down at several places, I was starting to lose spirit slightly. Apparently I made good impression on some recruiters though, because I got two job offers this same week. It was the greatest feeling I've had that is related to working. I was feeling wanted, they was fighting over who could hire me, and their fighting increased my monthly salary by about $300. Money is not important to me, I just wanna work with something I love, but the feeling of being wanted it was GREAT! I will now pursue the game design and game developer in my spare time, me and a friend have a small game project we are gonna do either in unity or in his framework he have made. Being able to move, means we live in same town at least, and in the future I can maybe get a job at Paradox Arctic which is in same town as well. It feels as if I am moving slowly but surely towards my dreams!

Hello everyone! {{champion:133}} Quinn was one of the champions I knew that at her release, I just **had ** to have her. I haven't given her the attention she deserves in-game, but after cosplaying a few of my favorite video game ladies I've decided to work on Quinn next. Here is the cape so far. Thanks to all the Halloween costume stores out there I've also found a teal-colored morph suit to use as the under-layer. I'm a bit OCD when it comes to detail so I'm digging my own grave here trying to work on all the details (I bet you didn't see that she has wing-shaped clips on the sides of her legs, or that she has a small square pouch hanging off her quiver), and plan on working on this a bit slowly in my free time...but any tips or feedback would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks for readin'!
Nayhru
Hopefully this helps. This is the paintover I did on top of her in-progress model when we finalized her design. It's not the best quality, and some of the elements in some of the views should be ignored as we ended up changing them. Mainly the gauntlet. But it should give you an idea about construction and details :) Keep up the good work! Can't wait to see how it turns out! :D

Been playing Luxanna Crownguard a lot here recently and I just want to say thanks for such a wonderful game and such a great champion :) What are your thoughts on where she stands right now? I think she is one of the most balanced champions but I'm sure that's up for debate

I think she is one of the most balanced champions but I'm sure that's up for debate Balanced? A Champion with a shield, a root a slow and massive burst damage is balanced? I'm afraid she's far too untouchable - which is why she needed a movement speed redux. A character that safe shouldn't be that bursty, ya know?

Tell me what's new with you and where you think you could use some help. * (or tell me where I need to be helped! Feedback goes both ways :)*
Don't tell me it's the same thing because according the PBE changes for Singed: Singed •Fling (E) and Mega Adhesive (W) now both note a target flinged into Mega Adhesive is ROOTED instead of SNARED. They imply difference between the two. http://www.surrenderat20.net/2014/10/1023-pbe-update.html

We just rolled out a feature where each board remembers how you sorted it last. So if you like viewing Community Creations with "Hot" sort but prefer "Recent" for Gameplay & Balance, it should remember both of these preferences. These should also work across browsers, so long as you are logged in! If you see anything wonky, please do not hesitate to let us know!
This is really interesting. I play on a laptop, but have always used an auxiliary keyboard and mouse. Can't imagine how rough a trackpad would be xD. Really interesting observation about early smartcasters being a bit better at skirmishing, but late smartcasters being better at positioning/actually hitting those skillshots. As a non-smartcaster (at least currently...), I have to agree from experience that if you usually have the luxury of lining up skillshots, but are forced to fight in close-range, tight quarters, that things become fairly hectic pretty fast. Would be interesting to see if some players were just naturally better (i.e., before practive/training) at hectic, close-quarters situations.
mrackham
> Would be interesting to see if some players were just naturally better (i.e., before practive/training) at hectic, close-quarters situations. I think this is absolutely true. I was a nervous wreck when just starting League whenever a lot started happening on screen. I remember my well-meaning friends leaning over my shoulder shouting "Q! Q! E! E! Q! RRRR oh man press R!" which only adds to the tension. Adrenaline can run high during your first big teamfights. I've seen some otherwise excellent typists forget where their hands are on the keyboard and not be able to press any abilities at all in the chaos.

I love the Syndra one, but that's probably because it's not spoooopy and it's pretty.
Smartcast was bit hard for me to learn. The major online game I played before League was a game called Ragnarok Online, it's an MMORPG that is nothing like League obviously, but every spell in that game is used like a spell in this game without smart cast. So it took me quite a bit to get into the hang of Smartcast.
Scilica
It took me about 2 years of playing before I swapped to smartcast coming from an MMO background, so I understand the feeling... (I think I might have aggravated some of my friends with my stubbornness in this matter.)
I wholeheartedly approve of this curriculum. But if he REALLY wants to work for Riot? He needs to write an algorithm that runs in O(n^m) time for some finite real m, and solves the Traveling Salesman Problem. That would get him hired fast wouldn't it? (More realistically - understand exactly what I'm asking and how ridiculously tall an order it is) You did, after all, say go big. (I have thought about it casually, but aside from a few absolute rules about any solution - it is for instance impossible to have the solution have intersecting lines - never put in time to make progress.)

Research problems are always a great thing to try to of course :)
All hail the All Powerful Mute Button. No really, I think this is a fundamental teamwork skill in League. Not everyone is going to attempt to work *with* the team, and giving those people any more of your attention than necessary can lower the morale and harmony of the entire team. Muting inflammatory team mates massively prevents me from tilting.
HotKnife
Indeed! The amount of times I talk with chat-restricted players or those banned by PB&J audits who say "but, look at what the other person said to me *(because I didn't mute them)*! If only you understood why I said all of those awful things" is *very* high. If someone's trying to get a rise out of you, say nothing; mute them; report them at the end of the game. Move on. Be happier B)
riot considers it midly toxic/BM to tell people they're muted so yeah.. don't do that...
TenSlashTen
It's just not productive to announce to everyone that you're muting someone. Also, if you announce you're muting someone (perhaps because you think they're annoying) then that person only becomes more annoyed/offended. They'll probably report you back now that you've made a point of saying "I don't like you or what you're saying." However, I've never seen someone punished just for saying "reported" before; it's usually accompanied by other patterns of toxic behavior.
Just posting a periodic reminder that members from the boards team often sit in the CommunityPlatform chat channel on LoL. We ask questions about crazy ideas and intentionally accidentally leak things we want to do with the boards.

If everyone loses roughly equal amount of game from trolls, the distributions of ratings would not change if those trolls went away. So games would be less frustrating perhaps but your rating probably wouldn't be higher. Also if you are the type of person who never causes the loss on your team you are more likely to win games from trolls than lose - since 4/5 players on your team could be trolls, and 5/5 players on their team could be trolls. In all seriousness though, trolling, intentionally feeding, toxic players etc are obviously an issue we care a lot about. The solutions we pursue must be ones that scale to a player-base of 67 million+ people. We have a significant amount of people-power dedicated to making this experience better from many angles.
i actually whould appreciate this.. if you can figure out how to do this well then you may be able to find the algorithm that those other bot's in games use.... and than maybe find a way to get rid of them..... or at least see if they really are bots! .... ...... ........ actually.... what if you put an insignia thing on their summoner icon so that people knew? .... i'm rambling at this point but this seems like a very viable experiment to try out, at least on PBE
AGmukbooks
We can never do it now. I said it now and knowing that it was happening would ruin it. Its' really important that you feel like you're beating other players, otherwise you would just go play bot games right? ...Unless of course I "took care" of anyone who might know... Hey uh, unrelated... where do you live?
"Just a game? 5 stages, $2 million cash prize. This isn't game." So... when did my Gold 2 match become Worlds? I won so I want my $2 million Riot and you can just mail me the 5 stages. I expect an Email by the end of the work week. Enemy top laner lost his lane so his team raged at him and told us to 'fkg push fkg mid'. We told them to calm down because it is just a game. We all have had players lose. In fact, **every single game has a loser**. Stop getting pissed about it. It will not help them play better. It will not make you more likely to win. Also, it is just a game. I am not saying that because it is okay to be bad or anything. I am saying it because you should not get so mad about someone losing. It is a game. You are not playing Worlds. There is not $2 million on the line. Calm your ass. EDIT: I feel as if I could have worded my post better as some people are reading it as no one should take the game serious or I am attempting to devalue your experience. That is not what I meant at all. **My entire point is that it is a game and someone doing badly in a game is never a reason to get pissed and rage at them.** That is my point. I play ranked. I want to climb. I want to do better. **I hate losing. But one thing I hate more than losing is seeing a team group up to attack someone that is playing poorly.** I have played matches in which I dominated and I felt bad because I had the honor of reading /all chat hate towards the player I was beating. I have had matches in which I played like trash and got the blunt end of the hate stick. It sucks. Both being the victim and being a spectator. It is a game and losing in a game is never a valid reason to verbally attack someone.

We could just secretly inject well-executed AI bots into random pvp games (as full 5 teams of course) that are designed to keep all players at a 65-70% win rate. They would have normal player names like xKiller911x and do normal player things like not buy boots by level 10.

Commando Yi
Nah... It's just an oversight relating to the work we did to make it so GD was more like GD
I'm in Bronze and I've been using smartcast since level 7 o.o
Scilica
Actually, it's surprising sometimes. I teach a lot of new players and for a few of them smart cast is a lot easier for them to get started with. I wonder if it has to do with having experience in certain video game genres first?

The gross noises the Zyra skin would have... http://youtu.be/uO4lkv-jLRs?t=25s Also that would be an amazing trundle skin.
First, I'm in Bronze. Don't take the 'Bronzelord' thing personally. :P Second, smartcasting. Smartcasting is amazeballs and you should use it. My Braum is easily 25% more effective with Stand Behind Me and Unbreakable smartcasted. Thresh's Dark Passage can now just be thrown. Veigar can cast Dark Matter fast enough that Fizz can't escape Event Horizon before it lands. Ryze can spam like he lives in Nigeria. Don't set everything to smartcast. I like having to manually target Teemo's Blinding Dart. Braum's Glacial Fissure, Thresh's Flay, and Veigar's Event Horizon are things you'll probably want to manually adjust. But smartcasting will improve your response times, making you a better player. It's tricky to get used to, but worth it in the end.

Smartcast is pretty scary when you're not used to it. But I would really encourage you to give it a shot. Change is scary, don't get me wrong, but it's worth it! It's going to take awhile, but eventually you'll find you can react faster and easier than before. I started it on only a few champions that I knew very well. At the time, I think it was Leona and Caitlyn. But after awhile I was eager and willing to smart cast all the champs, then I started smartcasting items and summoner spells. Also, I wouldn't jump into ranked games while you adjust :D.
