Actually, I was posting a lot and, to be honest, kind of redudant threads about the AFK topic. In my desparation I thought I'd get more attention by this (please note that we talk about like one or two threads per week, not spamming). In the end a boards moderator informed me that further threads of that kind by me would be insta-closed because of the frequency/redundancy. I even kind of understand this. I just wanted to try everything to achieve a change in this matter.

: Ummm... You were probably told to not name and shame. It's got nothing to do with the topic at hand alone. You can discuss the problem, just don't get anyone involved to start witch hunts or to try to get them banned.
Err...wrong thread? Or am I just missing the connection? I am not talking about specific players, but about the issue in general.

: Hey Riot can you make Yasuo not cheat at EVERYTHING FFS
Yasuo is just so forgiving for mistakes, my cat could play him and carry. You have a shield, you have a second shield, and you have a dash with untargetability. Smart guys always tell me to "bait the spells out first" and then attack, but hell, you know how many resources that costs compared to what Yasuo has to only invest? Not even speaking of his convenient cooldowns. So yes, I agree, it's a complete cheater champion and the only one I will never buy nor touch.
Rioter Comments
: PSA: If you're a laner and your jungler is ganking YOU have to set it up.
PSA back: However, if I don't set it up (e.g. because I am pushed under tower, have low health etc.), don't gank mindlessly anyways. I'm not mad if you are cancelling a gank, but I am mad if you greed for a gank and feed my lane.
Nhika (NA)
: No one wants to jungle.
As a laner, I feel that jungle is just a completely weird role. Which camps do I do first? What about the scuttler? When to gank? And why does the enemy jungler so often know where I am? I know that there are explanations for all of this, but seriously no one goes like "Oh, I got autofilled jungle! Let me just read these five tutorials first!". Smart people will now answer that you get the necessary knowledge over time. Yeah, but if I need to spam 100 horrible jungle games to even be usefull, I frankly just don't start with it at all. And when I am autofilled jungle, I just pick Sejuani, try not to feed, and fulfill my role as an underleveled CC bot.
: 0. The huge burden of knowledge to use "his" ult properly will make him generally trash in lower tiers of play. 0. The total lack of consistency in "his" ult will make him generally trash in higher tiers of play. With those problems in mind, he has to be compensated with a ridiculously overloaded kit. He's a clown fiesta on legs. I wish I was surprised that Riot approved this.
Actually, his flexibility might make him a great counterpick in pro play. Certain first picks will not be taken any more while Sylas is open, because the enemy team might "sylas" your first pick's powerful ultimate. Still, his R is a design nightmare. Riot is not serious about game design anymore, it's all about $$$. A champion that can steal ults will certainly be sold well.
: Hey, So riot has already stated that this season they have a whole new team that will focus on improving the client. So expect big improvements this season client wise.

So expect big improvements this season client wise. The problem is that almost everything that Riot touches gets worse instead of better. So, if they announce to look into the issue, we most likely just get new issues as a replacement.
Dukues (NA)
: Riot Balance & Design teams have cured my addiction
Totally agree with that. I quit about half a year ago and regret nothing. Most of my friends quit long before me. I started out in S7, and though I got beaten up a lot (on the battlefield as well as in the ingame chat), I found the game quite enjoyable - a nice, fast paced strategic game. Since S8 changes it's just a mindless bloodshed brawl, and I personally hate those kind of games. Still. it took me half a year to figure out that I had no fun at all playing League anymore. The habit of playing your "main game" dies hard I guess. But Riot freed me, too. God bless them.

: there are 4 potential feeders on your team, while there are 5 potential feeders on the enemy team. the math is great, duo with someone and there's 3 potential feeders wow!
Which confirms that the only skill needed is to "avoid feeder mates". Nice game.
: Unbelievably Many AFK Players
Riot does not care about AFK behaviour. Part of their incompetence, I guess. *shrugs and leaves*
: I finally stopped playing
I'm occasionally still playing with friends of mine. Also, I have a smurf where I sometimes try fun things (Garen Support >50% WR :) ). But besides of that, I have no interest in the game anymore.

He's surely not in a good spot, but he's not bad or hard buffworthy. (My opinion.)
: I am actually dreading next patch because for some reason both of my mains ({{champion:111}} and {{champion:223}}) are randomly getting nerfed even though they have been weak for over a year now.
Both champions are strong, but far from overpowered. I agree that no nerfs are needed though.
: Is Riot's goal to just remove towers from the game ?
Actually I wait for the day they release this: TOWERS We feel that the outplay potential of tower dives is very limited. Therefore, we increase the reward for a successful dive. Tower shots - Now heals the enemy champion for 5% missing health.
: Riot's solutions to supports is one step forwards and two steps back.
I've given up on Riot. The moment they added "quests" to the support items, things got off the reail. But it's useless trying to talk to them. Just deal with it or uninstall (no offense, a lot of my friends did already).

Malak (NA)
: Akali Stalling with her smoke is really annoying
: Know what? Think Iv'e had enough for this season
100% agreed. I stopped playing LoL besides regular matches with friends I know. Because then at least I get the nice social experience. And even they quit over the course of time. I mean, nobody would approach their friends with something like "Hey, let's meet this evening and play a totally unfun game!".
: The sound champ select makes when your champ gets stolen or banned is the worst thing
When I watch a streamer playing League, and his "Match found" sound triggers while his client is not visible to me, I totally get startled. Even worse if you watch a League stream while queuing up yourself...
: Pool Party Art
Officer, I was a really nasty guy. Please arrest me.
: Why Even Play Anymore?
Yesterday I had my first ever placement with my smurf account and I was placed with Plat/Gold players. Imagine I was a really newbie to the game, that would have kinda ruined their experience just a liiiiittle...
: Unpopular Opinion: Water is needed for survival
I really don't understand why table water is paid content. How long will Riot just sit and watch?
: I feel like league becomes more and more of a coin flip game
Exactly this. Skill is not of the essence anymore. I could give you dozens of the same examples. This is why I started playing so much on my smurf account, where I just play casually and have fun. Improving is just not worth it anymore. And I suspect that this is exactly the casual experience Riot aims at.

Lan Fan (EUW)
: And the worst is its intentionally
I still don't see one good reason for the new champion order. I wonder so hard what happened at Riot that this decision got through.
: How the game feels as a Marksman
Applies to anything but mid/jungle really.
Hayaishi (NA)
: What happened to balancing around healthy design?
Assassins and assassin-like champions need to basically be completely changed or removed. The whole class is a bad design.
Rioter Comments
: Tank changes for 8.16
This will hurt Leona more than buff her in my opinion. The shield is her key mechanic for both offensive and defensive plays. Also, she's already played rather rarely. Maybe, instead of redistributing stats, reward Leona for a successfull E-W combo?
Áery (NA)
: Hashinshin actually spitting some facts
Everyrthing has been said a billion times before. Riot won't ever listen. Just give up.
I guess they allowed the game design team to touch the UI elements now as well. Bad decision. There is literally no reason to have your score at the top and everything else mixed up. If anyone at Riot still had half a brain, they would notice that this was an unecessary change to the worst. When we told you to fire Ghostcrawler, we meant Ghostcrawler and not the QA stuff. Jesus.
Ceol (OCE)
: CertaintlyT Champion frustration stems from their kits breaking fundamental game principles.
CertainlyT is a very creative person, but not a good game designer. I wish there were more CT champions, but all of them were design wise revised by a good designer.
: Toxicity is rampant because Riot doesn't allow a way for players to release game caused stress
"In order for people to be less toxic, allow them to be more toxic". OK.
: Imaqtpie nearly in Diamond 3 this prooves that riot destroyed the core aspects of the game
Just restore a backup of S7, re-introduce the new champions apart from the Zoe abomination, and nerf Ardent Censer. Problem fixed.
: Trying reverse psychology with riot and the developpers
How about turrets that heal the enemy, and assassins that can AOE oneshot?
: Idiots, Lux DOES take skill (some)
Lux' Ult is the problem. You'll always snipe something eventually, especially when you hit your CC by accident. Still, she is okay. She's just a noob champ like Annie, and noob champs must exist for, well, the new playerbase.
Leto GT (EUW)
: The fact that 25%-30% of games are considered traps games is concerning.
Although I like and upvoted your thread, I wonder why those threads even exist anymore. There are literally hundreds of threads tackling the issue over the course of S8, and none of them got attention from Riot. The easy answer is that Riot is "dumb" or "incompetent". The more concerning but true answer is that they are neither. They want the game to be exactly where it is. One can only guess why, but complaining obviously does not help. Riot can just go please themselves. I've given up on them. LoL is still okayish if you play with premades. Once it's gotten so worse that even my mates won't play anymore (and literally a dozen of them quit over the time of S8), I'm dumping this game, too.
: They will respond by buffing damage even more.
You are wrong, Sir. Riot will instead nerf towers.

: If you can't punish a Yasuo for playing bad, you're bad. Period. No argument needed.
"If you can't hit me with your gun in the chest while I'm wearing an impenetrable vest, you are bad." Okay. Actually, I am able to defeat Yasuo easily, but only If I get to counter-pick him with something that at least is unaffected by his windwall. As soon as I can get around his horribly designed kit, he's just a victim.
: A bad Zoe ult is a get-into-jail-card. A bad zoe is bad and can die. A bad anything can die. Therefore all champs are balanced because if you're bad you can die.
It's badly balanced. As a Yasuo, you can dodge a lot of poke with your shields and your dash. Also, his passive gives him much power without any skill expression needed. Even if you play without hands, you transform from 0/6 to 12/7 in lategame, because of this. Concerning Zoe, all of her damage is packed into one spell, which is naturally one-sided, boring, and impossible to balance. Second, her RNG factor is obviously a horrible design for a strategic action game. Do we even have to discuss this anymore?
: Ironic how they're both designed by the same individual.
: so is {{champion:157}} Still is
^ This. You can still dodge most of Zoe's shit, but you can't punish a Yasuo for playing bad because he has a dozen get-out-of-jail-free cards in his kit - and even if he is punished, he will come back after 2 items no matter if he is 0/10/0.

: How long has support and adc dominated this game??? I love this season
Yes, oneshot "outplays" by assassins are so much more fun.
: Nah it's not a bug. The last 0.2sec when you go back, your back isn't cancelled even if you receive damage. The {{champion:58}} dealt damage to you, you managed to go back but still received damage (his dash damage are really low, so you probably did regen them in base), since he dealt damage, he took tower aggro
I was like -2 HP, but yeah, if you are right, that makes sense. If it was not so tedious, I would watch the replay...
