: Would you prefer a tank meta or burst meta?
I have the feeling that, in a tank meta, the fights require actual skill and last longer. Watching any gameplay or playing by oneself is boring if you just fight and the fight is over in 4 seconds because akali pressed one button... I think that tank metas and damage turned down on carries is the key to making things counterplayable. In burst metas ur dead before you even notice why you get damage. Having time to react and if its only 1 sec makes the game less frustrating.

Can you actually explain why League is still printing money to the point where their esports prize pool is growing, they're getting more and more sponsors, and their playerbase if down at all hasn't changed enough to affect things like matchmaking times (at least in NA)? Because if its not "Players who leave are being replaced by a new audience" then there's seemingly no answer as to why this is a thing and that's not very useful if you want to get to the core of why Riot is still succeeding despite pissing people off. Like people complain here all the time, but half the people who post admit to have quitting the game. And plenty of people who do post here do like the game as is, or at least tolerate it. It's important to actually understand what's going on so we can actually petition Riot for changes rather than "LUL GAME SUCKS, HOPE RIOT GAMES DIES" like a lot of people echo here. I upvoted the OP and agree with the sentiment that the game state isn't ideal but the fact is a lot of people want League to be in the state it's in and its not just Riot. And understanding what's actually working about the game and what we would want changed from the game can actually give Riot useful feedback... assuming they give enough fucks to listen to it.
The game is dieing and thats completely okay Why should I care about it anymore there are hundreds of other gmes better than league. I just feel sorry for all that money I spent on it biggest regret of my life...

: This is basically something you'll have to answer for yourself. Just because one person finds the game worth playing doesn't mean everyone will. My thoughts are league is still playable but riot's not worth giving money to anymore.
its become pure garbage...

: Hey all I want your honest opinion...
League is realy not the game you should play in order to have fun with ur friends. Litterally play anything but league.
: we need a high skill enchanter support
well would be cool but woudlnt work 80% of the supp mains are egirls that just duo and have no skill themselves...

: {{champion:92}} broken? You've been listening to Hashinshin too much I guess. Riven isn't broken.
not broken but too strong and a pain in the ass
: Yes make a season 4 server already. We have starcraft and starcraft II. We have CS and CS GO. Salvage the game already.
It would actually be like a "rescue" button for this game
: Why has teleport been nerfed into the ground?
I just read the headline IM actually too lazy but in my opinion they do it for competitive play. JUST for competitive play and that sucks

I thought that was sarcasm wanted to make a little joke as well..... But now I notice that ..... your actually serious about this wow..... I feel..... really sorry for you.

I have played the game since season 1 and by end of season 2/start of season 3 I was super addicted to League. Over the years I kept telling myself I needed to cut back but kept seeing a good chunk of my free time invested in League. Honestly... around seasons 5 & 6 I figured I would just keep playing League well into the future. > > But. You saved me! The reason you're seeing this happen is that responsibility for keeping the game addictive has shifted to another team.
You mean the skin team that oversexualises everything?

: Riot Balance & Design teams have cured my addiction
Wow you made it congrats I guess. Well I might have probably a very similar opinion to you though I dont really feel sorry for the time I spent on it - at least the time I had fun with. Well that might be 3 seasons ago or sth like that but It was actually really funny to me."the League I remember playing is dead." Well thats actually the pure thruth I dont know how to say it differently. Ive been trying some fortnite lately; I want to play a fun game and not a "oh wait I cant play it cuz my neighbors are asleep " kind of game just not worth it...

I mean they're appealing to a new audience so most of the missing player's spots are being filled. Its become more of a team based fighting game than a strategy game and there's a market available for that. Especially given that the asian markets (primarily China/Korea) just want League to be faster due to PC Cafe culture and how they play fast paced games anyway. It'd take them pissing off people who like League being a clusterfuck of damage to actually hurt them at all. Despite how the game feels to play, its not really that imbalanced for having 140 champs and being in preseason. 44-53.5% winrate spread across champions is actually pretty normal, there's always outliers that are hard and team dependent so they do poorly in solo Q and there's always people floating 1-2% above the winrate curve for being pubstompers. The ones 53 and above usually are both overtuned and pubstompers so there's probably room to nerf them but that existing doesn't ruin the entire game. Like I think the only way Riot ruins League is if champion imbalance gets to actual extremes, like lower than 40% or higher than 60% being common. That or if they do something that dramatically fucks the game pacing like towers being made of literal glass and tower plating dying in one auto. Even people who want fast League want to finish items.
"I mean they're appealing to a new audience so most of the missing player's spots are being filled." I in my opinion this doesnt really work since the game is so overly complicated new people just say fck it and play fortnite.

: So i'm not the only one who has the same thought. Although i'm rarely playing League now, so it wouldn't count as quitting. My only question is: How long will it take for the vast majority of the playerbase to have the same thought as you and quit to an amount enough that Riot won't be able to survive much due to how much players they've lost?
Well possibly one more year or so ? I mean they lost 40% activity on euw servers this season...

: Can someone help me please?
Dont even get into such situations if you cant handle them. Be smart, quit the game.
: I agree Some times they make some questionable decision but overall i think riot is a good company Much love {{sticker:katarina-love}}
Let me correct you. I think what you actually ment is : "They almost only make some questionable decisions but sometimes they hotfix the sh*t everyone`s wondering about how it even made it to live server"

iiTim (EUW)
: I hate when people say that the game has become "shit" or sucks these day's. Dude if you think it sucks what are you doing here go play bo4 or something don't bother us. I think still the majority of people think this game is becoming better and better. Changes aren't always bad just keep that in mind.
The game got worse thats a fact. Most people want to quit the game but cant because theyre seriously ill with having an addiction
: akali rengar these two champs should've be deleted, no one could beat em on 1v1
Well probably but My most hated champions definitely are the whole adc class + zoe
mack9112 (NA)
: Truly is an amazing game And this pre season rocks
How can you just straight up lie to me like that?!?!?!?!??!??
Madjack01 (EUW)
: I upvoted this simply because of the thought of people crying extra salty tears when they see some positivity for the game they like to bash. Yes, I'm a simple man. I also never understood why people who have been so dissatisfied for months/years still spend so much time on the game. That's almost the equivalent of “not recommended“ on steam with 1452 hours played.
Well I know what you mean and If Im raging about this game and get some counterarguments like that one I can only simply have one answer. Addiction. I had to fcking uninstall it in order to "get clean" from it Idk how to say that correctly in english im german plz forgive me
: Nice try riot, I know you posted this
xD wow actually looks like it Like I couldnt even finish writing something like that cuz i`d be dead from getting an heart attack because Im laughing so good damn hard at what Im writing.

: I am very dissapointed in Riot Games right now
Well congratulations! Youve come to realize that this company simply dont care
: I don't hate the game, I hate its playerbase.
I dont hate the game, neither do I hate the player base. I hate the company.
: Sexualization of a video game character, if not widely misplaced, is almost never a bad thing.
Well sexualisation is actually not a bad thing. But in league of legends its just so forced in order to make more money with those sexualized champs and skins. Like the actual theme of the champ just gets thrown out of the window like: "hey Im big and mighty and Im going To beat the sh*t outta you, but please look at my huge tits while Im doing it"
: It’s not a “damage meta” anymore. Damage has become the core aspect of this game.
As I said in another post, this "meta" just feels like anarchy, Like pure chaos...
: ADCs are 'too weak' and Riot is planning buffs.
I dont even think this can be called a "damage meta" anymore. This state of the game feels like anarchy. And I know anarchy is actually a a form of state where there is no form of state I think you pretty much know what I mean.
: top laners going mid
I didnt even read the article but from the headline I can say that Toplaners are only going mid because toplane itself is too weak and they dont have any impact on toplane so they go mid or bot
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: November 30
When will you do something about toplane? I mean as I read in the article above people in brazil mostly think that toplane is the weakest position. I agree at that point Its just too far away from the dragon, and always using tp for dragon calls kinda makes the spell itself more boring. I think a good solution to the problem would be making some more objectives in the jungle for topside that spawn more often and are more powerful, shifting baron spawn a bit more to the lategame and adding something in between of rift herald and baron. P.s.: buffing adcs is the most stupid thing Ive ever heard in my life
dramenbejs (EUNE)
: Reason why this game is getting worse and worse
I think that the problem is not about the regions or countries, I think its more about like elo and skill. Well they only care about high elo players thats a fact they even said that in an interview that they dont fcking care about platinum or below. But probably all the good players are asian so that may be the exact same thing. :)

: I am now a Forumer, NOT a Summoner
Well I may not have played this game for like 8 to 9 years how you did but I think that I can share my experiences as well: as a player I feel like riot is doing everything to not only ignore, but doing the exact opposite of the wishes league players have. I only play every 3 to 4 months for like a big update to hope they get back to that sweet sweet skill based game where you actually needed ur brain and not a garen R or a dark harvest rune that is so broken I got 2 games in a row where fcking EVERYONE was going for that fcking keyrune. The meta is the same like in the last 2 to 3 years: Damge, Damage, Damage. And if people come to me and say: "but hey, there are tanks out there they are broken", I just think about those tanks that deal more damage than an adc back 4 years ago, but, in return, have 2000 hp and probably100 armor/magic resist. To sum it all up: I had some great times in this game, though I cannot play a game without finding 20 things riot made broken over the past few weeks. So I would say: sit back, relax, wait, and play some other games that actually require skill and even If I play a game like fortnite, it at least gives me the feeling to get better and improve. You dont have such thing in LoL. The only thing you can improve is buying more and more champions, one more broken than the other. So why should I play a game Im simply not enjoying anymore... (Sorry for bad english as I said Im pretty young and Im not a native speaker :/ )

If she got any nerfs she would be unplayable, which would make me sad. Shes SUPPOSED to one shot, shes a burst mage. Thats like nerfing lux's r damage
I didnt mean the damage though the damage is completely fine I meant nerfing those anoying bits like a free summonerspell or a 3 second cc ;)

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: November 22
Please dont buff gangplank hes so annoying to play against like his spells are so overpowered like what is this aoe crit armorshred slow thing; or wtf is this well yeah heal and a fcking summoner spell but way better for laughable 90 mana? xD Also the low cd of his Q is something you should rather nerf than buff!
Jenivie (NA)
: Snow Day Zoe
ult could probably look like a huge crack (hole) in a frozen sea? Well the skin would be pretty nice I still think that zoe should get some heavy nerfs, a rework or a delete ;) p.s.: the asleep effect could probably look like a person trapped in a snowball with only the head showing out xD
: I have an idea for turret barriers
riot wanted to make games longer by increasing the time spent in laning phase...
: Noodle/Ramen Illaoi
xD pretty funny but I prefer the good ol' star guardian urgot
: Please make junglers less gank relient and more farm relient
I think jungle should be more about going for vision and dragons instead of one specific champion that just has no fun for an entire hour
: Get bruisers out of mid
the problem in my opinion is that bruisers who were usually played at toplane cant be played at toplane effectively because the lane itself has no impact to the game since it is on the other side of the map all the time
: The TRUE biggest loss to League in the last 4 years
well your probably right but the balancing was the biggest loss to league for me xD

: Ornn changes on PBE
finally he gets the unstoppability back!!! GJ guys keep up the good work from now on I hope this season really wasnt that great

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: October 31
When will you start actually trying to balance the game? Literally the only good thing in this patch are the viktor nerfs and it sounds like theyre going to be wayyyy to weak
: Why would they need to delete her they can just make her cooldowns insanely long, her base stats trash, or her abilties damage scale off of stats she doesn't need so she can be a worthless character like 90% of the ones in game? That is how they "balance" everyone else.
well as i said the problem is that her kit actually cant be balanced and interactive
