Sorry I mixed it up! Of course the old ones are ugly and the power trio are the pretty ones ! {{sticker:sg-soraka}}

: How dare you calling my boy Sion ugly???
Sorry, I might call him beautiful when, before he activates his passive, he strips naked. Oppai Guardian Sion

: As I have mentioned in other threads, you dont understand the thought process because your still under one rather flawed assumption, that their thought process is first and foremost about 'balancing' the game. Recontexulise everything, dont assume its about balance, its clear its not. Riot got a MO of message from up top and that was to shift priorities and it seems to go as followed. 1.Create and encourage content and game-play that is interactive and engaging to watch for outside viewers (Twitch,Youtube,Worlds) 2.Keep the game in a decent enough state that enough plays are retained to keep 1. in effect. 3.Create skins and content that encourage monetisation for both those who play and those who watch the game, encourage cross interaction with these people through deals (Twitch Chromas, World Missions and so on). 4.If none of the above are negatively effected, balance the game and champions in a way that everything is fair and fun, but only do this if it wont effect 1 or 3. Then stuff starts to make more sense, people jump up and down, champs like Irelia and Akali get untouched, Duskblade is untouched, New damage runes, damage creep, Plating is just free gold on towers, Yorick getting nerfed. Its not about keeping the game balanced, its about making it as watchable as possible. That is why Damage is untouched, Towers get crappy plating (Flashy plays and snowballs are fun to watch), Irelia and Akali are left alone (Flashy), Yorick is nerfed (Split pushing is boring to watch), and guess what, its working, League is topping Twitch, Worlds were huge, it wont be changed, this is league now, for the watchers, by the players, and until it starts effecting point 1 it will stays the same, flashey kits will override balance, damage will creep,everything will one shot everything. Its not a game balanced around the people that play anymore, its balanced around the people that watch it, and they can get away with it, because they have a dedicated audience, because there is thousands of people exactly like you who hate the game but cant walk away, they have their audience institutionalised, they know people wont leave, they wont go, no matter how much they fuck up. You dont understand their though process because your thought process assumes they are trying to make a game for the people who play it, and its clear that's not the case. Its why i walked away at this point, this is not a case of wonky balance, its a intentional designed decision, and that is fine, but dont except us to hang around then, im not here to slam my face on a keyboard so that you can get that Twitch dosh and neither should you.
Thats a fresh viewpoint paired with an excellent explanation. I think you are spot on with point 4. The exclusive content creator content comes from their influencer marketing strategist (some woman, who is the lead strategist, sometimes responds on twitter) and the team seems to be formed recently as their have made no appereance before that. Maybe thats why they implemented hextech crafting in the first place. Not only to engange people more but also to make creating content easier with "openings" (e.g. fifa openings)
: Idk man but I think I'm a bit worse off than you are.
: Tbh I play certain supports because I like protecting my allies and feeling pretty (and sometimes buff when I play Braum). You can argue paternal instincts there (oh yes definitely I relate to those). The feeling pretty part is just fantasy. People like playing characters they relate to, but they also enjoy a decent fantasy. Well, not all people, but I digress.
I also play a lot of support. My picks: {{champion:555}} {{champion:412}} AAh, its not getting any better{{sticker:sg-janna}}

Do you think we only talk about military leaders here? The general discussion topic is for everything league related that doesn't fit into the other topics. And as you can see, everyone talks about league.(not about military leaders?)
