: Hey guys, we know there are a lot of players who are really passionate about solo queue. We're not trying to be dishonest or dodge this topic. Radio silence on this the past couple months has been painful, we know. We hoped to come out with a direct answer to this, but working through the problems players are facing on live now (consistency around position select, queue times and matchmaking for high MMR) is taking longer than we initially expected. We did a bad job at managing expectations around this and deserve the heat we're getting around that. That being said, solo queue does not directly address either of these problems and could suffer from the exact same problems. We'll be honest: there's definitely a world in which solo queue doesn't return, but we'd rather keep it on the table as we work through these issues before making a final decision.
I just LOVE when you make a post like this, get destroyed by hundreds of posts here and over thousand in Reddit in just couple of hours and then make a single cop out response that's not directed to anyone in particular in the comments. This has happened every time you have discussed solo queue too, but that doesn't make you guys lose your goodnight sleep I presume. What's better is that the backpedaling went one step further again going from "well look into it after X" to "it might not return". Next time you probably will go "It probably won't return" and then the inevitable "Dynamic queue was SUCH a success (ignoring how literally every other queue was removed) that we decided to keep it permanently :^)" We get it, it was decided that solo queue won't come back. We get it that you don't want to keep the game competitive and just want higher casual player retention. We get it that you are willing to ignore all community feedback to do so. What I don't get is why you would lie, we wouldn't shoot the messenger if you didn't insist on doing that.
: New Champ Select Update
At least don't bother lying when you scrap the solo queue. Lemme guess, in about month of two you come up with another post to announce that due to surveys made people don't actually want solo queue and then can it? It was so obvious what would happen straight from the first announcement, solo queue was set up to fail with every possible benefit being given to dynamic queue to prep the cancelling of solo queue. Riot has never been too good at lying. This whole thing is a colossal failure and who ever is pushing this should be fired on the spot.

: The 2016 Ranked Season: Updates on Dynamic Ranked and your feedback
I refuse to believe that this isn't a bad joke, I just can't make myself to say that everything is alright. Lyte is trying to force this failure so hard by stacking rewards and releasing it early to try to bait people in playing this, all the while real ranked is delayed by several weeks again and the ability to actually play ranked with friends got removed. How can that even happen with an update that is designed to enable you to play with friends? Just a disaster upon disaster.
: Upcoming Upgrades to Chat Restrictions
Not sure if there is any point using the chat anymore, you can communicate fine with just pings and anything can get your reported. Don't think using chat is worth the chance to lose your account. Not sure if being afraid to chat is the goal of these changes, in my opinion should focus more on good behavior.
