: I was permanetly banned for using third party software without even having one..?
I don't think there's anything the boards can do to help you. You can't prove that you didn't use 3rd party programs and Riot can't reveal what they detected and how.

: These Pyke balance changes are awful - here is how to save support pyke AND butcher solo lane pyke
But why completely butcher his solo lane potential? Why not adjust the problematic parts of his kit and allow him to be played in multiple roles?
: No, the problem is for every Zilean main there are 100 yas and 200 zed mains. Not every champ can be popular in a game with 140+ champs, but that doesn´t mean that mains of less popular champs don´t deserve a minimum level of support.
What do you define as "minimum level of support"? Unpopular champs are getting skins all the time. Sure, for a single champion it might take several years between skin releases, but Riot could easily just ignore them and make more profit by making more skins for popular champions.
: [Spoilers] Lux: Issue Nr. 2 - Feedback, Discussion and Questions
I'm kinda disappointed how bland magic looks to Sylas. I like to day dream and make up characters or scenarios. Before Sylas was announced I made up a character that could see magic, but was blind otherwise. I always imagined magic as something captivating to look at. Shifting patterns of magic swirling around a person, taking shapes and patterns resembling the element (or other thing) over which the person has control. Meanwhile in the comics mages just get differently colored outlines.

: A Question About Petricite
Petricite has a limit. Given Xerath's immense power, he could easily overload the petricite and render it useless. In [Demacian Heart](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_gb/story/demacian-heart) something similar happens. > Vannis held out his Graymark, capturing the flickering arcs in the stone and suppressing the magic. But the petricite rapidly darkened and cracked, overwhelmed by the little girl's power. Vannis dropped the ruined disk and spun around, swinging his wooden stave at the child’s head.
: 9 Months and no word of Nexus Blitz
https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/en-gb/2019/04/dev-nexus-blitz-wrap-up/ The important parts: > But when Snowdown ended and the missions turned off for the last two weeks of the run, we saw a huge portion of Nexus Blitz players immediately go back to their usual modes. There was a significant drop in hours played per day, and engagement continued to decline for the rest of the run. and > While we’re no longer considering Nexus Blitz as a permanent mode for the foreseeable future, we are going to treat it as a great mode to accompany events, especially given its flexibility to feature new in-game events and rewards. We’re already starting to think about when it could come back!

How can Riot profit off of a game mode that isn't theirs for a game that isn't something they own? Are they now making an auto chess mode? They are. It's still ridiculous to assume that Riot would cancel Nexus Blitz just because they want to develop another mode. Fact is that Nexus Blitz wasn't popular enough after missions for it ended.

There are AP assassins out there, I never denied that, but itemization for them is quite limited. AD assassins have three items which enhance their playstyle by offering synergizing passives or actives {{item:3147}} {{item:3142}} {{item:3814}}. AP assassins have to make do with normal mage items, which can certainly work, but from my experience feels lacking compared to their AD counterparts. However, you're right. After looking at the numbers, the ratio of AD to AP assassins is way less skewed than I originally thought.

That's why I said "for completely valid reasons". Both IP bans and mac address bans aren't viable options, but are often mentioned in discussions around permanent bans.
CD8 (NA)
: Anyone else find it odd that Qiyana is AD?
I think AP assassins just have less itemization options, compared to AD assassins. Anti-assassin items are also built with armor, not magic resistance. That's why assassins are generally AD, even if it doesn't really fit their theme.
: New player. Is LoL worth putting up with the toxicity?
The reason why lower levels are so toxic is that Riot doesn't ban by IP or mac address (for completely valid reasons). If a toxic person gets permanently banned they can just create a new account and harass new players. If you persist you will find that toxicity should decrease in quantity and severity, but it's never really gone. In the end it's down to you. If you don't enjoy playing because of the toxic environment, then you should stop. League is a great game, but also has a steep learning curve. Having to learn while you're not enjoying yourself is a chore and in my opinion just not worth it.
: Ixtal created Shurima, Buhru, Helia, and the ascetics of Targon?
I never thought of it that way. Would that mean that Ixtali, Buhru, Helia, and Targon culture all originate from unknown lands to the east? That's interesting.

AR URF (NA)
: False reporting punishable?
Since the system is automated multiple reports do nothing, you just need 1 to trigger a review. False reports also do nothing, if you're chat log wasn't toxic. However, openly asking for reports completely unnecessary and therefore considered harassment and can lead to a punishment. So in one of those "report x for y reason" cases, just say nothing and report them after the match.

: tired of people non support champs in support lane
Do you really expect a all mage supports to fall out of meta because a single person will int when they're in their games?
: New gamemode, 3 - 4 Teams
I don't think lower end computers could handle 20 champions during a teamfight. Maybe have teams of two or three? Additionally, in that mode it would be entirely possible for your team to lose because of circumstances beyond your control. Two teams ganging up on you is all it takes, so I think there should be some kind of mechanic in place to prevent that.

Except the combo you want to use (from range) is Q to slow them, auto them 2-3 times, eat them, and then spit them out when Q is off cooldown. Being able to move after being spit out is irrelevant when he just slows you with Q again anyway.
I wouldn't call a 0.75 second stun irrelevant. There's plenty of scenarios in which the outcome of a fight could be changed by that additional time.

: Are Clash games ever coming back??
Short answer: Yes Long answer: https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/en-gb/2019/05/dev-state-of-clash/
: "XY isn't fun to play against". So which champ is?
Personally, any kind of champion that forces or at least allows some interaction. Nothing is more boring to me than just sitting in lane and doing nothing but farming. Champions that are able to shut down any kind of aggression and don't provide a source of interaction on their own are what I consider not fun to play against. Of course, this is also largely dependent on the player.
: The same way that one lethality spell shield item works I guess.
Oh, I was thinking about a channel that roots you. One like Night's Edge would make more sense, but I still feel like it wouldn't have a lot of uses. Not attacking for 2 seconds during a team fight, while being easily interrupted by cc seems suboptimal at best.
: Idea for an AP Bruiser Item
How would you expect the active to be used? I can't really wrap my head around it. Also, you might want to change the passive to 4 seconds in **champion** combat. 60 AP and 30 AD just for farming seems a bit excessive.
: Yuumi nerfs? Seriously?
She is getting nerfed. Her problem is a very steep mastery curve. On average her win rate increases by 16% within the first 50 games played with her. That's why she may appear weak, but after some practice is way too strong. https://twitter.com/riot_captain/status/1135713765637230592

: So first of all, yes, you are allowed to write your own "lore" for characters. I myself do everyday. I am [Jhin](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/roleplaying/EHU7I1jW-a-lethal-masqueradeask-jhin), after all. My friend and I both have explored the depths of his character, from his [first canvas](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/skin-champion-concepts/sr7ABzf5-adolescence-and-the-scent-of-lilac-champion-origin-story-khada-jhin) to [the evolution of his killing technique](https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fytsWfnpZhXn2yr44Vqx40-dugdyvgZBlOOJMzwgcTQ/edit?usp=sharing). There are also other works by countless other wonderful writers. What I have managed to learn about him that is 100% canon by Riots standards is this; * His father was the head of a martial arts school somewhere within the province of Zhyun. This I got from the Wiki. * I believe, officially, that his father's school specialized in daggers and darts, though Jhin was never agile enough for this, preferring to use blades in slower, more precise moves. This caused his father to develop a disliking for his son, and is possibly what drove Jhin to be obsessed with being perfect. He wanted his father's approval. I also have no source for this information, I heard it from someone else. * Jhin has always had an interest in the arts, and probably studied them or even pursued a career in them behind his father's back. * Jhin would later become a stagehand in Zhyun's traveling operas, which is most likely where he learned most if not all of what he knows, as he got acting lessons among other things. * Adding on, Jhin's "mask" when not in his outfit is simply his face. However, his acting training allows him to better control the muscles in his face, which allows him to "change" it to appear normal and unassuming in a crowd. His acting training also allows him to keep him composure better, giving him better control over what little emotions he has. * This may have been where he learned to play the piano as well. * His victims do appear to be random, as he was most likely killing along the routes of the traveling operas he worked for. However, he always kills in 4s, no matter where he is or what he's doing. * He is noted to have killed "scores of travelers and sometimes entire farmsteads". * "Entire farmsteads" might be hinting that he's killed entire families. * Not so fun fact, but based off of a line from his color story, we can assume that he also removed his victims faces and wore them as masks. * However, since Jhin is now an assassin for the cabal that freed him, Jhin has less of a choice with some of his victims. * And no, he doesn't like this, and only really tolerates it so he can get to Zed & Shen. * And since he kills in 4s, the cabal is putting innocent people at risk for their own gain, because he's not just going to kill his target(s). * Khada Jhin is not his name, but a stage name. It means "Golden Excellence" in Ionian. * We have no indication of his true identity, be it his name, his age, his face, nothing. * He is 4 years older than Zed, though. * Due to miscommunications in the making of his artwork, Jhin's "official" appearance is not canon. * In the lore, his eyes are blue, not red-brown. * His arm is not mechanical, its just armor. * His weapons (in the lore) are as follows: * The Hextech Mass Accelerator: AKA, the thing on his shoulder. This is why he wears armor of his right arm. Its so powerful that, without the armor, it would shatter Jhin's arm like glass. * Whisper: Whisper is in-tune with Jhin's innate magical abilities as well as his Ki techniques. This coupled with the fact that its already magical makes Whisper a very lethal weapon. * His cane: Whisper's detachable barrel. When Jhin isn't performing, he uses it as a cane when he walks to "announce his presence". * His traps: We learned from awaken that these things are essentially bear traps, snapping closed when someone is unlucky enough to step on them, cutting open their flesh and sending magic coursing through their veins before detonating. * As noted above, Jhin does have innate magical abilities. * When creating the bullets for Whisper, he infuses them with his magic. * You can read Jhin's scrapped color story [here](https://docs.google.com/document/d/18g-Cvrxrrg6xovkjvNvfZLjLgIx9r5PTSP11f3B7Ps0/edit?usp=sharing). * Someone brought this to my attention a while back. However, the version they posted was a bit fucky due to the way this site is. So, I fixed it up and saved it in my Google Docs for easy access. * You can also watch Awaken, which I don't have the link to, to see Jhin in action. * There's also [Of Rats and Cats and Neon Mice](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/project-of-rats-and-cats-and-neon-mice/), which gives some insight into PROJECT: Jhin. While not canon to the main lore, its still interesting. * AH! How could I forget his [champion insights](https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/champions-skins/champion-preview/champion-insights-jhin)? * As someone else already pointed out, Zed will be getting a comic later this year where he will be, presumably, hunting Jhin. Riot/Marvel, you have one job, do not fuck this up. * As for that comic, I have no idea what that's all about, but that doesn't sound at all like it could be Jhin, so don't worry about it. Am I missing anything? I think... I think that's everything that's official. I _just_ woke up, so pardon me if I missed anything.
One thing I might add is what makes his murders so horrifying that people lose their minds. It's the beauty of the murder. Jhin will kill your mother, rend her flesh apart and rearrange it in twisted ways, but she is going to look more beautiful than anything you've ever seen.

: The more we learn about Demacia the more I find it weird that Poppy is there.
1. She's a yordle and her natural glamour hides her race from most people. 2. and 3. She's probably unaware. Poppy is pretty naive and probably wouldn't suspect mistreatment and a rebellion of mages in the country she loves so much. Not to mention that she may be too focused on finding the hero for Orlon's hammer to notice everything going on around her.

: https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/en-gb/2019/04/dev-nexus-blitz-wrap-up/ It's not being considered for a perminant mode, so we are stuck with the 3 we have, as it seems they don't want to do rotating anymore either, even with modes that worked. Can't remember anything being wrong with Seige or Poro King but we haven't seen those in ages.
The official explanation for why rotating game modes stopped is that they require too much of a tech investment to keep them up to date with new champions, items, runes, and background code changes. They'd rather allocate their programmers and developers to do other stuff. Additionally, some of the modes supposedly have become stale and repetitive. https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/en-gb/2018/03/ask-riot-clash-update-and-keys/

: how strong is Mordekaiser?
We don't really know, but it's heavily suggested that Swain's current main objective is to prepare the world for Mordekaiser's return by uniting it under the banner of Noxus. Since Swain is a man of reason and has gathered a lot of knowledge, he probably estimates Mordekaiser's strength to be somewhere between all of current Noxus and Valoran, Shurima, and Ionia combined.

: If you could take one object from the world of Runeterra to have what would you take?
Do mechanical contraptions count as a single object? If yes, then I'd probably take an arm prosthetic from Piltover and hand it over to someone capable of reverse engineering it. Would help a lot of people. If possible I'd take the entirety of {{champion:61}} , but that stretches the definition of 'object' quite a bit. If mechanical contraptions don't count, then I'd take a synthetic Hextech crystal. Again handing it over to somebody capable of reverse engineering it.
: Zed's 50+% ban rate, 50+% win rate
Given his high ban rate, Riot's new [balance framework](https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/en-gb/2019/05/dev-champion-balance-framework/) dictates that he will get nerfed if he has >52.5% winrate Gold I and below **or** >52% winrate between Plat and Grandmaster **or** >45% pick/ban status in Challenger **or** >90% pick/ban status in pro play on the current patch **or** >80% pick/ban status in pro play across 2 patches.
