: Aram: suspiciously NOT random.
In my observations, for a specific time frame, let's say for 3 hours, the pool of champions that are given are not completely random. There is a group (that does not match the free champions) that you will see more often. And that group changes. But going into an ARAM, there is always some Champions that are favoured to appear.
: Kai sa ARAM
Yes. Kai Sa AP with Dark Harvest is a low effort impactful gameplay in ARAM because her "poke" is way too strong. Far stronger than things like xerath or lux

: Yet, such a system, while slightly slower, is more fair and prevented the negativity that comes from players calling for reports all game.
Our definitions of slightly are *slightly* different. It's much slower and if the supposed benefit is preventing calls for reports...it is not happening. People still call for reports
rujitra (NA)
: Any report flags the game for review. More reports simply flag the game for review. That's why more don't make a difference. Imagine if you had to grade a student's essay. You assign it a B because you read it through and that's what it deserved. Grading it again and again isn't going to change the fact that it's a B essay. Even if all that student's friends come and ask you to take another look, it doesn't suddenly become an A essay. Thus, one report is the same as 9 - in both instances the game is reviewed.
But it seems unproductive to not give a **priority** to review the cases of players who get reports often or who got reports by everyone in said game. If you review with the same priority players who got a single report, that seems like a slow, frustrating and unproductive way to deal with reports if you ask me... The chances of a x9 being a serious case are much bigger
rujitra (NA)
: That is not how the system works. The system does not care about number of reports, nor how many games someone is reported in.
So I hear the number of reports doesn't matter nor how many games someone is reported in, that everything is caught by an automated system. So how **do our reports matter**?? Why giving us the option if it does absolutely nothing then?
: This game isn't enjoyable anymore. And it's the community's fault.
Agreed. I believe honor is a good *reward* system but I don't think the player reform system is working as well as Riot sometimes says it is. LeaverBuster is great but what about inting, griefing in one way or another, giving up the game...we have reports for these but I feel reports do nothing most of the time...

: [SUGGESTION] Weighted Boots
I like and subscribe to this idea {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
: There are 2 types of ARAM players
Good stuff but chill it's not the same as troll. Applies to every game mode
: It turns out Millennials have more health problems than their previous generation
It's not surprising. And I believe the same will be true for the generation after that. We learn more and science advances at an exponential pace and our existence becomes longer but also more complex. Younger generations should respect experience, older generations should respect **the struggle**
: Yasuo is Unhealthy for the Game
He has too many tools for soloq...against an organized team ofc he gets crushed but the excuse I see for these champions to exist is always; they are high risk hish reward, well playing against them is also "high risk and high reward", against a good yasuo you do a mistake, you're dead.
: oh... so they actually CAN design armor for females that still allows for some accentuation of the bust hips...but for some reason they aren't using that on their champions? {{champion:10}} {{champion:145}} {{champion:99}} I really like riots design most of the time, but some more consistency for some of the more awesome designs would be nice
Remember the way you draw in 3D differs from a 2D drawing. *see every splash art and 3D model in this game* The way they need to apply joints to allow movement and exaggerate some features may also be attributed to the fact that you enjoy the 3D model from far away. I do agree that gaming often sexualizes females and I don't want it to stop, I want males to receive the same treatment. Gimme dem sexy bois {{sticker:sg-lux}}

: Hey everyone. Let me see if I can offer more insight. We see all the polls, upvate threads, and requests to bring bans back to ARAM. We understand that a very large group of players feel this way. We get the benefits it brings, feeling like you have some agency to remove particular champs you don't enjoy facing. That's super valid. (I personally banned Teemo every game because trying to push into shrooms is pain.) We understand the desire and the need bans fill. HOWEVER, they also come with draw backs. Whether or not you agree with them, there are players that enjoy and have a high affinity for champions like Veigar and Brand. There are players that don't want to think about bans and just want to get in the game quick. There are players that enjoy the high and low rolls of a pure random mode. And believe it or not, most of them aren't "ARAM accounts". Discounting and downvateing them doesn't make them not real. FOR NOW, we'd like to see if we can solve some of the pain points through other methods before considering re-instating bans. Balancing has proven to work quite well, as we've seen Sona/Ziggs go from 68% win rate to 57%. We still have some more adjustments that can be made, but the champions are more fair to face than they have ever been. There's still more work to be done though, and more adjustments will be coming more often. (I've already got a batch ready for approval.) Bans are a very strong hammer we aren't quite ready to slam down yet. If you look at the ban rates I posted on twitter, for a few champs it was basically the equivalent of deleting them from the mode. If we made a poll saying "Should we delete Zoe from SR?" I'm sure it would have a ton of upvates...but we still wouldn't do it because it's not the right call. Game design isn't always about the popular opinion. That being said, we are STILL OPEN TO BRINGING THEM BACK if our other methods don't solve the issues. If after a few months, Fiddle/Veigar are still a pain to play against, then we'll reconsider. I'm sure this post hasn't changed many peoples minds, but hopefully at least shows you where we're coming from. Other common thoughts: *Look we had 5 melee and they had the perfect comp. This shows we need bans and they were ARAM accounts* - No...this happened either way, regardless of bans and they very likely were NOT ARAM accounts. The thing about random is that highs and lows exist. With all champs unlocked in our internal playtests, we still managed a Lux/Morg/Blitz/Jhin/Alistar comp. It was terror. It happens. *Why not just unlock all champs* - This would help for sure, but has side effects we aren't comfortable with. It's no secret that Riot does need to make money in order to continue as a business, and this would impact that quite a bit. However, I do think we can make improvements in this area. 42 F2P champs isn't enough. More on this hopefully soon-ish.

The thing about random is that highs and lows exist. With all champs unlocked in our internal playtests, we still managed a Lux/Morg/Blitz/Jhin/Alistar comp. It was terror. It happens. I feel very strongly about this, as a player that plays league casually for some years, with all champs unlocked, and with ~ 4000+ of ARAM games played I am entirely sure of this: **ARAM smurfs, ARAM accounts, ARAM clubs and ARAM organized premades exist**(!!!) They defeat the purpose of the mode and I don't know exactly what can be done, but it's something that deserves inspection. Bans gave some relief but I think there are better ways to accommodate the issue.
: @Any Rioter,When it comes to game balance/visuals/lore...Does Riot care about all champs equally?
Lore: Yes. And they have proven it with the *tons of content* they have been releasing. You can head to Story and Art and if you voice your complains nicely you might get in touch with the writers themselves, happens really often, especially during releases. Gameplay: No. Champs that are played in pro play and in high elo get more attention, you are right. As far as balance goes the nerf hammer swings very swiftly for competitive play and very slowly for soloq and casual players. Visuals: Yes! For real? They have a public calendar for VGU's and you can argue time has been harsher for some champs than others but all champions are steadily being worked on
: On the recent issue of "UPVATE IF YOU WANT BANS IN ARAM RETURNED" threads
I don't know why the boards consistently ask for Riot to say something and then when a Rioter opens up to discussion I consistently see this antagonizing behavior. I'll admit It's entertaining but not constructive. I remember Mortdog in the Odyssey game mode and I remember him reading and taking into account what the community said about the mode and *delivering* on it. It would be nice to see the boards facilitate his job, imo
: Thanks Bro. From a legal point of view, I know everything, 3 years ago when I decided to create League of Legends videos on an ongoing basis, I thoroughly studied the rules and agreement. There is no point in writing in the Support League of Legends. game issues are solved there, but I have no game question, and the likelihood that some of the developers will read this topic on the forum and try to help me much higher. Regarding the Lawyer. I live in Russia and here is not so simple with the laws and legal support, and the official office of Russian YouTube can do nothing, it employs about 10 people who answer common questions, and any complicated ones are processed only by mail prepared answers, I contacted them.
Try to contact Riot offices in Moscow via mail or phone. Try to get people to give you their contacts. This is your money, your business. Keep your chin up and fight it. Content creators and YouTube are under enormous pressure these days and it's very unfair, given you advertise their content to an audience. You, and other creators, fuel the game, add to the buzz. You deserve to be treated BETTER. My hope is that you will find support if you keep on digging. Best of luck

My issue with ARAM accounts and full premades armed with many re rolls, is that they take the Random out of aRam **in a much more impactful way than 10 bans** (optional bans that can be repeated, may I add). If they truly are "ARAM accounts", then they are getting less rerolls. Your rerolls refresh at a much faster rate if you own more champions. We can tune it though if it's not aggressive enough.

Also consider other ways to mathematically influence the reroll rate. Discrete values, refreshing for smaller amounts when going with premades...idk. I trust you guys can find a compromise here even better than ARAM bans. I stan the changes to ARAM

OMG an healthy discussion with well constructed and thought out arguments. EW DISGUSTEING It even gives space for both sides of the discussion to voice their opinions. I DOWNVATED, I don't open the boards to see this, I'm deeply offanded. For real, it's a very large champion pool and I saw a lot of bans getting repeated and people that decided to not ban anything. I don't thinks bans have a real impact, it just helps people feel like they are more in control and to counter ARAM accounts, force them into the free champion rotation, they love that ;)

: UPVATE IF YOU WANT BANS IN ARAM RETURNED
I believe we got some rioters on our side in the ARAM bans. The case against it is supported by a minimal decrease in the percent of some champs being played. When we get to 200 champs maybe that claim turns even more insignificant {{sticker:sg-lulu}} There is only 10 bans in an universe of 140+ champs and VERY often the bans repeat themselves so I don't see the issue here XD It's just a treat for the player to feel more in control...there is no real impactful downside

: I think it’s a factor of a vicious circle. There tends to be this air of hostility around the boards, where people start toward bashing on Riot (e.g. “this balance team sucks,” “Riot why are you always lying,” etc). I know I personally wouldn’t want to plunge into that, and is also part of why my own job doesn’t involve interacting with unhappy customers. After a certain point, it’s probably difficult for them to engage in discussion because they end up getting jumped on for one thing or another and thrown under the bus for everything wrong. But like I said at first, vicious cycle. The hostility in the boards is, in part, a result of the diminishing communication. Players who come to the boards don’t feel acknowledged or like they are really listened to. They feel like Riot is intentionally hiding data and insight from them. This creates more disgruntled players, more hostility toward Riot. Which started first? I don’t know the answer, but but one circles back to the other.
You said it all. And like you said, your job doesn't involve dealing with feedback, theirs do. I truly believe the game thrives in a better direction when the opinions of the community are taken into account. The writers of League are a shining and beautiful example of that. So are champion dev teams. ALL teams take a lot of bullshit from the playerbase. If they responded to constructive criticism they would get more of it.

Terozu (NA)
: Why hasn't Yasuo been changed when he has >60% banrate in 9 regions?(of 13)
Because he is annoying to play against. Ban rate has a very clear level of "I personally wouldn't like to go vs this champ when picking *my* champ" and yasuo is annoying against many champs. His kit is overloaded (like many champs) but it's not overtuned
: but Riot just said banrate = level of brokenness /s
They actually said banrate reflects frustration most of the times and being versus a yasuo can be very annoying
: Ironically, Yasuos only weakness is...
Also, his dash has a predictable trajectory and when he is casting his ult, if you are not a target of it, he is a sitting duck to be damaged.
