: I don't think it is the existence of missions that sucks the fun out of the event, it is the fact that the later missions borderline on the, to use Riot's description, insane. I wrote a longer post on the subject in this thread (https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/5WJ6rvGn-my-biggest-problem-with-the-onslaught-quests), but the tldr is Riot lost sight of the fact that missions should be fun, not rage inducing aggravation fests and needs to reprogram the later missions accordingly.

: Whoah dude, I'm not here to be combative. I just think that a competitive mode is best suited to competitive choices, not exploratory choices. That said, I'll explain myself the best I can, since you have questioned my reasons. In my personal opinion, playing something one doesn't know how to play when one could instead play something they are familiar with is not playing to win. Some people play in competitions in order to beat opponents on equal footing as them and to climb until they face even more fearsome opponents. Giving them the easy W by playing something we are unfamiliar with flies directly in the face of that fun. Again, in my personal opinion: Playing a competitive game mode is pointless if you are not bringing your best effort to the table. Experimenting with champions hinders that, so I think it has no place in such a game-mode.
> Playing a competitive game mode is pointless if you are not bringing your best effort to the table but we get to try out cool champs, so it's something http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/facebook/000/502/586/adb.png
Quepha (NA)
: Umm... I like that for the spirit of competition, but if Clash is the ONLY place players can try out all the champions, then it may become the GOTO place for people to try out champions they don't own. I could see players possibly wandering into the mode not really caring about anything but "oh I get to try Yasuo here without buying him" and making for very un-competitive matches. I feel like opening up all champions to practice mode where players are restricted to only interact with bots might be a good companion to this feature to create a better place in the game for that kind of activity. Maybe that's an idea from HotS worth copying.
oh! thx for the idea, I actually wanted to try out some champs {{sticker:sg-jinx}}

: We do, but this is a whole new animal. In previous pre-seasons, the boards would be spammed with one or two issues. Right now you've got: - BE sucks - Leveling sucks - Yasuo is cancer - Zoe is cancer - Runes are imbalanced - Towers suck - The community is more toxic than ever - Riot is buffing people that don't need buffs. - Riot is nerfing people that don't need nerfs. - Riot is re-working people that don't need re-works. - Rioters are legitimately arguing like children with people all over the boards over stupid shit. - Games are too snowbally - Tanks do too much damage - Bruisers don't exist - ADCs do too much damage - Mages not named Xerath or Zoe don't exist - 80% of the champion pool isn't even played - Champion Mastery is too expensive - The client is buggy - The minimap is buggy (big blue squares) Just to name a few things people are complaining about. I'm sure there's more. There are sweeping issues that majorly impact the enjoyability of the game. Its not just one or two things exclusive to 1 or 2 champions or 1 or 2 roles, or a particular queue or game mode... Its fucking EVERYTHING.

: Very small sample size. There are no documented changes to fragment drops. Since it's an RNG system you may perceive that drop rates are lowered. You are making a general statement based on your own experiences, only. Don't tell me that everyone else posts the same thing without considering that it's a vocal minority, not a majority.
I also feel that way, plus that you get way less skin shards from hextech boxes.

: Sorry to be that guy, but Riot's nowhere near what EA is doing when it comes to micro-transactions. You can still play league of legends without paying a cent the entire time. Yes, the new Blue Essence needs some work, but I will point out the obvious fact: it is still preseason. Riot is still tweaking things in preparation for Season 8, so just wait a month or so, and Riot will probably fix the system to something more tolerable.

> Oh, youre a mid silver players who won 5 games in a row? You must now be at a mid gold level gold? lol, how about plat+? was climing out of silver 1 few weeks ago, in my 2nd promo game had plats+ {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}
: Just played what, 4 hours of League on ARAM? Started off the games steamrolling the enemy team because bots would come to us and feed us like no tomorrow. Won 3 in a row ultra quickly, then lost one, won, then lost 6 in a row. Bots in EVERY GAME. Any game that I won the enemy team had bots. Games we lost except one had bots on our team. There was a game I did bad in because I can't figure out how to play this jungle cat lady properly. Every game I've reported them. Every time, I ask others to do so and they just shrug it off or leave immediately. Nobody in my games helps resolve the issue with reporting. I remember reading somewhere that if you make false reports, you can actually get in trouble. At this point, I feel my account might be in danger because of all the botting and nothing is being done about it. We can report all we want, but it doesn't do anything if the issue isn't being fixed. If Riot could have some sort of PR manager or something post that they're aware of this ongoing issue, then it would make me feel a little better and more inclined to report. At this point, I'm at the "why bother" stage because there's no feedback on reporting. There's no confirmation anything is working. There's nothing. Edit: Ironic that my page shows Wukong quoting "Every mistake is a lesson." Maybe it's a mistake to even care anymore so long as Riot is making money on the new event going on. One customer leaves, two more come in. We're all numbers, regardless of how much we pay them.

nope, at least few chests 2 or 3 with only champ shards

: I think Aerie damage is fine early, it scale horribly and I feel it is a rune made for early game. As you said, simply tweaking the CD early would be perfect and not hurt character that like this mastery without abusing it. The problem is that Comet scale horribly in base dmg AND ratio, and CD is too high anyway. Comet need buff. Aerie need a light CD nerf.
also comet hit percentage is garbage from time to time, can even be 70%
