: The Pyke problem started earlier than his release
Just had my ass handed to me by a {{champion:7}} "support". I'm contemplating on leaving botlane as a whole, the damage meta is ridiculously unfun to play in both the giving and the receiving end.
: This is the main thing I hate about Yuumi. Just got out of a game, today, where the Yuumi just sat on their fed Zed or fed Pantheon, for most of the game, after lane phase ended. There's literally zero way to avoid a Zed who's popped Youmuu's and is getting that RIDICULOUS speed boost from Yuumi's E. What I will honestly never understand, though, is why Riot gave Yuumi, a champion who literally cannot be touched while on an Ally, an ability that hard slows you if it's empowered (of which, her allies can help her land, making it virtually undodgeable) AND a movespeed boost on her HEALING ability? If you ask me, it's her E that makes her kit overloaded. You want her to have a heal? Cool. But why does that heal have to come with a speed boost? And, on top of that, she can hold two stacks of said heal/speed boost. With the way her E scales, and the "healing increase" items that she builds, there's literally no reason she should have so much in that ability. And that's before mentioning the fact that the heal is a "% missing HP" heal, which, to me, makes no sense at all.

: Yuumi is unfun to play against.
What I hate with an unimaginable passion is that Yuumi just chooses the fattest carry on her team, sits on them for the rest of the match and scrolls 4chan with their other hand while making the carry they are sitting on essentially unkillable. Happened yesterday. The enemy jungler, Volibear, got two kills early and Yuumi instantly left her lane to sit on Voli for the rest of the match. She occasionally pressed W to move on and heal her dying AD carry for about 400 hp, then pressed W on Volibear again. We can't kill the Yuumi because we can't kill the Volibear, we can't kill the Volibear because we can't kill the Yuumi.

: As a support main, I don't know how much more of this I can take before I just quit
> Sometimes even before ten minutes have passed I feel like the game is already lost and then the rest of laning phase is hell. I also main support and relate to your post completely. I have played some AD carry as well and can confirm that the whole bot lane regardless of which of the two roles you play, is complete hell if your lane partner is incompetent in any way. This feeling is stronger while playing support. With mid lane AP mages like {{champion:63}} and {{champion:99}} being played on bot lane, I can't really play my old main {{champion:412}} and have fun while doing so anymore. If my AD carry gets caught out, they are dead almost every time. The occasions where I don't get a storm of pings and a lost lane (eventually a lost game because a tilted {{champion:67}} is always fun to play with) are getting rarer and rarer. It really isn't even an AP mage "support" -exclusive problem. These kind of games happen way more than before. Like I mentioned, I have played some AD carry as well. If my support somehow can't peel a {{champion:63}} E+Q+W off of me, I will die and lose the lane 9/10 times. I can't farm anymore and the game is really hard to win anymore if some other lane didn't stomp completely and have a relevant champion, say a good {{champion:157}} or {{champion:23}} on them. Honestly, I would quit, but I still want to enjoy the game more than I want to give it up. I want to believe the "old league" will come back eventually, even though I know it probably won't.

Nowadays I play ARAM over SR, because NB is gone. I actually enjoy playing ARAM casually more than I enjoy playing the base gamemode competitively. Surely I'm not the only one. Of course, if Nexus Blitz were to come back, I'd start playing it over ARAM. No questions asked. NB was and is still my favorite gamemode alongside Doom Bots.

Rioter Comments
: The most important part about nexus blitz was not the map, the items, the champion viability, bla bla blah.... _**Definitive End Time.**_ I can't stand being stuck in a losing SR game when the enemy team just won't finish, and my team won't FF. I'm normally not one for quitting, but let's face it... you know. You know you know. You know when it's not happening. But the enemy team really just sits around the jungle killing people who go into unwarded places, prolonging the game for, I am not shitting you, over 15 minutes. A game of NB ended in 18 minutes. **Guaranteed. **
Amen. I miss Nexus Blitz more and more every day, not because it had new assets, but because I could easily play a game or two whenever I was bored. I didn't have to commit into a possible 35-minute hopeless struggle. I could commit into a 12-18 minute game which never lasted longer than it had to.

Ah. I must admit I haven't seen this post, I've only seen the echo chamber posts which strongly criticize everyone involved. Cheers!

: Hard to imagine it, but i can see it working. Roaming is a good skill to have as a support. But if the ad needs help they need to get back into lane. I have had dumb stuff in my ranked games work so at the end of the day if it can work, i don't think it should be bannable, and anything can work. But it didn't so... Tbh i think the problem isnt the cheese. I think the problem is not knowing to stop trying it before you set yourself too far behind 13 deaths behind
Yeah, he appeared to know that he was not playing right but carried on regardless. Probably a troll
Rioter Comments
: People seem to be forgetting that a leaver could intentionally leave during when you need them most, or leave during lane where the opponent could free-farm, take turret, roam and help other lanes, etc, effect the entire game, and then come back in with the excuse of "Sorry guys my internet".
The fraction of the playerbase that would do the thing you mentioned is still only a fraction. I want to believe in society, but I must admit it is really hard sometimes. The idea has its flaws, but it is still only an idea, not a final product ^^

A vote would at least give the player with a connection problem a chance to get rewarded for playing the game. If and when the problem you mentioned would exist, the system would at least theoretically allow rewards, beating the current system.

: Why not compare your kill participation, cs, damage dealt/taken etc. to your teammates and set a threshold of 8-10 minutes instead of the current 3-5.
That, or just look at the stats at the end of the match. It's kinda discouraging reconnecting into the match if you're going to "lose" that game anyway
: Because system cant decide if u leaved, had DC or ur gamę crashed. Imo its hard to make it.
Well, I could imagine a world in which the system could be made a tad more precise. It could look at timestamps for example

Terrain elevation is not a thing for abilities, but is a thing for visuals. Lux aimed her ult right, it hit and landed. Only looks off because of camera angle and elevation differences. Working as intended. Second.... theres nothing there that should even be questionable? Plant was hit, then fiora got hit by displacement. Order of how it operates means hecarims displacement takes priority, as it is the most recent action. Same reason Ez/Trist can get hit by displacements and still E/W away.

: bronze IS elo hell
I actually had somewhat of fun playing myself out of bronze. People acknowledged both their and other's possible skill/lack of skill and thus didn't flame too often. All the fun moments, enjoyment and sportsmanlike conduct goes down the drain whenever I climb to silver. That's the true elo hell in my opinion.
: I do not believe that the future for League of Legends will be bright
> 3. Slow down the game pace. League of legends will never be able to match the high-intensity, high-speed games of Fortnite, Apex Legends, Call of Duty, etc. These games are designed around being high-intensity and high-speed, while LoL was designed around longer games and much more strategy. Lower CDR across the board. Lower the amount of damage that runes can output. Lower the amount of global buffs given by objectives. Lower the movement speed of minions and revent that shitty change to minions that ruined minion wave manipulation strategy. Start balancing around the majority of the playerbase instead of a tiny, extremely skilled percentage. > > 4. Stop picking obvious favorites with champions. It might be good in the short term to try and conserve players and make money, but in the long run it damages the game. Riven, Yasuo, Vayne, and all the other champs that riot likes to randomly force into the spotlight or are too afraid to give meaningful nerfs, are only a small percentage of the number of champions in the game. The rest of those champions have players that want to be able to play as well and, when they are consistently at a disadvantage due to Riot's choices, they will get burned out and quit the game. I support these points 100%. New champs have so much tools built in them versus the older champs. There is no use playing slow and immobile mages anymore, because other champions are just better picks. Balancing the game around making esports more interesting at the cost of the playerbase doesn't bring more revenue.
: Champion play patterns are disintigrating
Back in season 5 or something, I remember champions filling one role. Everyone had their own job, their own area they specialize in. Nowadays new / reworked champions have so much stuff built-in. I get that assassins must be mobile, and that 'assassin' is an entirely different champion archetype, but why would you ever play Trundle when you can play Wukong, why would you ever play Mundo when you can play Darius? Older champions tend to have a layer of dust on them, their winrates are sub-50%, and they just require way more effort to do well on than newer, revisited champions. This might be just my opinion, though.

I have had a lot of people who just move in the fountain in my recent games. Reporting them does nothing, because they technically weren't afk, they just did jack shit. I'll be honest, I've done this sometimes in games were we losing by a landslide (like you know you just have those games were team kills are 5 to 20 and they took all outer+inner turrets) and you know it's pretty impossible to win the match, so you try to ff at 15:00 but there's that one person that feels like the game is winnable, and I'd just go sit in fountain and walk around, and the leaverbuster does notice that I wasn't doing "jack shit" but just "opening mid", so from my experience, it does notice it. (well notices me at least) but never got banned or anything like that for doing that.

Unfortunately, more often than not, at the core of this problem is an ADC main who loses first blood and then starts walking around in base, jungle or some stuff like that. I would be less upset with that if it was a normal game instead of a ranked match. I'm not sure if the leaverbuster catches that. Does it decide AFK penalties by low APM (actions per minute) values?
AthenaXI (NA)
: Does it even matter? Rather AFK for real then.

: Why Nexus Blitz was killed unfairly by Riot (And why it should be brought back for another test)
Nexus Blitz was literally the sole thing that sparked my will to play League again. Before it came out last time, I was slowly losing my interest in the game because of negative experiences, including losing streaks and long stalemates. Then Nexus Blitz came out, providing fast-paced games, loaded with shenanigans. The best part was that I wouldn't have to commit into a 45-minute match in which there was no guarantee I would enjoy myself. Even if I wouldn't have fun, I would get to the next match in less than half an hour. When I learned that Nexus Blitz was "cancelled", I got super disappointed. I genuinely miss Nexus Blitz a lot.
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: March 20
Greetings. I had a thought yesterday while playing support: is there a particular reason why the "kill-a-minion" penalty doesn't depend on whether or not you have an allied champion in your vicinity, if the gold gain does?
Hotarµ (NA)
: The Instant Feedback System (IFS) message is inconsistent at best. It's best not to depend on that for validation that someone has been punished. The system is automated so it can also make errors and punishments can take time to be doled out. If they just said something like "die" instead of "I hope you die in real life" or something like that I can see how it _might_ have slipped by the system. I just wouldn't stress it too much. Worst case scenario is the game gets added on to another future punishment they'll receive. Best case scenario is they get rightfully punished with a 14-day ban or permanent ban.
You're right. Nobody is perfect ^^

I think they were teenagers, but who knows. Anyway, I will just go ahead and let you know that I am a female, I enjoy playing female champions, and I main support. So, of course these are all the descriptions of an "Egirl". But I do not stream, I do not play naked, and I do not ask for money. I just enjoy LoL and playing/spending time with my husband. Anyway, as the game starts, these "lovely" boys decide to immediately label me as an "Egirl". I tried to ignore them, but it was constant. Everytime I said something positive in chat, or helped get a kill, these boys bullied me. Of course, they received a lovely report from my husband and I after the game. But is this really necessary? Can girls not enjoy playing games as much as guys do? And why is it that guys who main Male champions dont have to suffer? Why is there so much hate in this game? Are there any other girls out there who have had to deal with this? First of all, how do I not get any comments even though I'm a support main and I sometimes play champions that often get labelled as "e-girl champions"?

: It is if: A) Team is too self-centered to actually try and HELP him. or B) the enemy team is smart enough to know to FOCUS him. Thus keeping him in respawn. Alot of the season 9 players are Snowflakes who are only concerned with "bubble-wrapping" thier kda. Their team doesnt even register to them unless they want someone to throw under the bus. This season its getting to where EVERYTHING is inting. Had a game where a jungler Ignored the enemy kha-zix, let him free roam. Then started claiming the players were "inting" when the enemy Kha got fed to the point they could 1-shot us instantly. And what did our jungler do? Nothing, just resorted to calling for reports on players for "inting" So I ignore claims of "inting" because these players are too self-centered and snowflake-oriented to actually think, they just call everything "inting" and wash thier hands of it like its some sort of catch-all label.
That's 20 deaths, for God's sake. 20 deaths. Without communication and without any reason whatsoever. It doesn't fit A and it certainly doesn't fit B. It's a Singed.
