And that boils down to a question of casual vs. pro play. Eastern regions generally have much-higher competitive play and focus on climbing while Western regions are far more about spectacle. There's a reason NA players flock to the likes of Imaqtpie and Tyler1: Not necessarily pro-tier players (Still extremely good) but their personalities draw people in more. Does catering to a more casual audience help in the short term? Does ignoring/focusing on a region that is inherently less competitive hurt the game? No answers here btw, just points.
>Does ignoring/focusing on a region that is inherently less competitive hurt the game? The answer is yes in one way or the other. If Riot does favor Pro play overe casual play (which they do), then by necessity they are admitting that they want lols entire playerbase, a 10+ million player cap, to play the **EXACT** same way a few thousands across the globe do, which just so happen to be mostly focused in eastern regions. Which is a completely toxic idea to implement because those few thousands don't just have hard earned skill, they have a born talent for these things, so they will always be irreplacably better. trying to force that into being false is like pointing a gun at yourself saying the bullet will hit someone else just because you say it so. Not a practically good example, but the point is, things arent the way you wish them to be just because you insist your will over the facts. and that's what Riot is doing. And if Riot did say that is not what they are doing, the past is a fact, the present a promise, and by this piece of truth you can see that Riot has consistently balanced the game around pro play because they want more competitive views rather than a larger, more satisfied playerbase. And Pro-scene is all about money in the end of all days, so saying league is trying to milk this game for every cent it can get is no longer a blatant lie anymore. Only Ironic that because League is trying to be a game it isn't meant to be, competitive viewership has dropped drastically, some games lost more than half of the viewers they usually have. **MORE THAN HALF!!!** For a very long time I have been actively defending Riot's balance as a whole, sometimes even publicly farmed myself buckets of shame by saying stuff like Kai'sa is a balance success and shit, and in these days I feel very ashamed of it because Riot just keeps taking worse turns. It's just like that mad dude from far cry said. Madness is when you keep repeating your mistakes thinking that things will change on their own. Riot thinks things will just somehow magically turn out right, well they wont, and the longer they look away from the problem the worse it will get.
: Can someone explain how Noxus exists?
Noxus works as a constitutional Monarchy with a Meritocratic system. Noxus is a Military-state, means it's main purpose of foundation was for Militarization. Because of that, Noxus has this basic rule of Strong Noxians deserve good lives. People can freely achieve everything they want by trying hard enough, so there is no systematic hindrance in your career path. Furthermore, Noxus despite mostly harnessing the strong, relies on it's entire nation to represent the military might, so even the weak have a place to be in. Honestly, noxus isn't nearly as bad as Riot has been portraying it. If Pantheon was noxian he'd make it as a top tier baker because he would be given the power to choose approaching the career. Noxus has unlimited choice. Sadly this does however mean that the slums are doomed to be **BAD** because of the same mentality that reigns.

The System can automatically put you up for a namechange that doesn't come with a cost, however the conditions are that your name must trigger the system (Which this one really shouldn't do) AND when you do so you are put up with a warning by the system. Repeatedly having to change your name for being offensive could lead to a ban for promoting/Advertising blacklisted content such as racism, sexism, bigotry, violence and illegal trade.
: League of legends a game that is not dying
As someone once said before: League is a game for being Played, not for being watched. LoL has well over 10 Mio players, while it's proscene has at best over 200. and Riot wants to tell us it is their legit course of action to try and force all 10 Mio to play like those 200 ._.

Color me stupid but the Targon Icon was already known if I am not wrong, during the Lore rework when Aurelion Sol was released that same symbol was literally plastered across the entire damn page. And Shurima too was fairly visible throughout release pages and lore updates for any champions regarding shurima. But neverthless, having the icon in itself is dope as fuck and Im hyped for that.

My wildest but least stupid and illogical guess is that she had a run in with ryze somewhere in her past, after receiving the Etwahl, in which ryze in their short get-to-know had her fully understand her magical connection to her special Item. I mean Sona is smart and all, but playing the Etwahl once and just kind of already understanding you can cut stuff in half with music if you want to seems pretty far fetched, having **THE** expert of magic teach her that while she merely had a suspicion sounds more plausible from where I stand.

GG isn't anyhow harmful because it literally means "Good game". ill shoot my balls with a catapult if anyone ever finds a way to legitimize being offended by it. HOWEVER, saying EZ has become a mild flag for toxicity and can be reported. It started out as just banter but now it's very existence is the definition of mockery and shaming a fail. You can say GG WP, or just GG, but if you say GG EZ or EZ or IZI you can be reported for negative attitude, and if you already had at least one punishment infridged to yourself, then this likely will lead to the second and so on. And I agree with it, I encourage reporting people who say EZ and will hug people who say GG as if they are my long lost brothers.

: Aren't Riot game employees obligated to help you if it's reasonable?
If you want a Rioter to help you, then submit a ticket to the support team who is kind of there to do just that. Rioters work for many different things, some are developers, some are artists, some are musicians, and some are the customer assistants. AND they have work schedules, means they are only "obligated" to do whatever Rioters do **DURING THEIR WORKTIMES** Outside of that they don't have to give any humanitary fucks at all. This was one of such cases. This Rioter likely was in his free time and wanted to enjoy a game, and he had to listen to some self-entitled rant during the game. I actually sympathise with him leaving the lobby asap and applaud to his decision.

: Less talk, more action. If they wanted to kill themselves they would do it without fail. When they just talk about it all it looks like is a desperate and pathetic plea for some attention.
Just because you want to die doesn't mean you can. Suicidal people still feel the fear of death just like any human does who has something valuable to go for. Then there is also the thing about faith. People who are suicidal have put priority in their wish to die. it doesn't mean it is the only thing they want. Some people are suicidal because they lost all hope, and to the very end want someone to help them regain it. That by no means has to be merely attention seeking. But the youth of today is so retarded that it thinks either black or white, no grey inbetween. Cries for help is a sentence in the vocabulary only actual adults know, and we've pretty much proven that that's a rarity in 2018. Your statement about actions are incredibly ignorant. please, unless you are knowledgable on this specific topic, dont speak. It just makes you an ass to listen to.

You've never been to the CoD or GTA community have you? GTA 5 on it's early release days suffered a massive scandal because someone who came in too late and missed the available stock pile for the game ran out to murder one of the customers that got it just so he could own one cd to play. And CoD just this previous new years eve made a new record for most toxic and extreme community ever, one dude tried to swat the opposite player for a 1.50 dollars bet in a 1v1 but ended up calling the swat team to the wrong house. While celebrating new year, the husband and father of multiple children was shot in his home where the whole family heard it, and likely saw it. People aren't afraid to commit homicides over games, suicides are really not even that special anymore in comparison. TL:DR, people did worse over games, suicide is possible and it does happen. Please don't be so ignorant over the topic. Human desperacy has no such thing like common sense or a line not to overstep.

Problem is, he is not wrong in the point he addresses. If you speak a different language on intent, mostly means to insult, you are by default refusing to communicate. Sure, that doesn't always apply, but sometimes isn't never. While people are free to talk to each others however they like, if it is a team based decision, you will have to communicate it in some way the others understand it. Besides, Correct me if I am wrong but wasn't voicechat partly created to provide means for doing just that`? Talk to premades how you want so you dont have to obscure communication, and accidentally get yourself punished as well, depending on what you said, and why.
: They cant, providing evidence of ban methodology makes it easier to avoid detection. Same reason that scripting bans have to come in waves instead of immediate. What was the game you got banned for? I may be able to analyze it and get some ideas. That said, being banned for feeding never happens in just one game and is extremely rare, they wont do it without very clear evidence - and i dont see _any_ bad games in your recent history - is this even the right account?
For Intentionally inting, saying you cannot provide evidence because you suspect people learning from it is audaciously stupid because every form, sneaky or obvious, form of trolling is already public knowledge for years. from obvious ways like running it down the really difficult to detect ones like spamming your skills as support so you have no mana and are forced to retreat, leaving your adc to die. A very practical example that fits this "no evidence" situation: You go to a library and want to read a book, but the librarian tells you you cant. And they really think you won't just go to another library or ask the people who already read said book for the content? thats either ridiculous naivete or audacious stupidity. My bet lies on latter, since Riot supposedly only has mature adults working so dilly dally hoping isnt a thing there.

: The higher rank you go, the worse Yasuo's winrate becomes. People should spend their type figuring out how high elo players do it instead of complaining in gameplay boards.
they should, but they don't. Because to most people it isn't possible out of some factor, be it the frustration of failing, the stress from being flamed, the stress from being mocked as something lower than a human (Boy it frightens me how many people believe yasuo players are **ACTUALLY** retarded) or because so many people ban him in draft/ranked. Yas is way too hated for most people to successfully perfectionize him. It is an endless ongoing loop, the more people hate on the champ the less likely people will get good on him, which results in even more people hating him.

: The State of Gameplay Boards (Why you should stop complaining about Yasuo.)
The main issue people complain about these champions isn't because of how fun they are to play. It is how bad it is to play against them, or have them as your teammate in unskilled hands. Because these champions have a lucidcrous skillcap, failing even once almost garuantees a lost lane, and in this meta, equals a lost game, so people get pissed off at those players a lot. Plus, yasuo's kit currently does post an issue with how crits work for him. My point being, people hate yasuo because it sucks if youre on the receiving end of him, as a losing ally or as a winning enemy. There is no fun in fighting him, there is no relief in killing him, he creates a frustrating atmosphere for everyone except the yas player himself. the main reason those players are silver/gold are because bronze, silver and gold make roughly 3/4 of the entire playerbase if not more. so you are bound to see most complains come from them cuz they are most present in numbers

: Why AP champs need 3000 but tanks 1000 and AD 800 gold to get grievous wounds?
Because on ADC's it offers no viable stats and will, earlygame, result in an 800 Gold waste Tanks need to be hit by it with AAs, making skill damage a loophole of weaknesses. And mages gain significant Offensive stats, some survivability and Necessary Magic penetration. The gold worth is a question of stats that come by with the item.

You really have no damn Idea how christianity is build up. While i praise your attempt to make a comparison which barely bypasses the "No religion talk" Zero tolerance rule, I have to note that you are almost embarassingly misinformed on the material you used as a comparison for sivir. The new darkin lore is badass, yes, but for every answer it gave, it opened up two new questions. We will need a lot more thorough explanations on everything. Specially sivir's weapon. It went from boomerang to Key-of-Xeraths-Prison-Tomb to literal sandman shuriken of doom.
: > (He would easily and gladly take care of it everywhere by himself using his full power if he didn't have to worry about losing his stars because the Aspects get killed) Imo it makes more sense that the reason the Targonians enslaved him was because when they asked him he refused them. So they would have taken matters into their own hands, and he was the closest most effective solution. ASol's capture could very well be the product of his own self centered nature.
In his lore it was vividly specified that the crown he wears, which enslaves him, was a " ***GIFT*** " they gave him in "recognition to his godly existence, for he is the bringer of light" ASol visited the earth twice at first, the first time out of boredom, where he grew curious of humanity. then the second time when he was offered his gift, the crown, which he thought was recognition and fell for the trap. after he picked up the crown, he slowly over time noticed that his intentions and motives were no longer his own and that after certain actions, start started to die. In time he suspected it, gave earth a 3rd visit when coincidentally a void fissure broke loose and aside from learning about the void for the first time, he got his definitive proof for his enslavement. TL:DR Asol was enslaved before he even knew the void existed. And the only reason he is against the void is because whatever is in charge over there actually terrified him **IN HIS RESTRICTED FORM** If Asol was free, not only would he have nothing to fear, he would give zero fucks if the void overran the world. He wouldn't need to, he could just nuke the universe and start it anew, like he created it the first time right after the big bang.

League of legends is not a game made for watching, it is a game made for playing.

kurnubego (EUNE)
: I'm fascinated how many people here know how to balance a very complex system right out of the bat. No, game balance isn't just two variables damage vs resistances. For example, downfall of crit adc's isn't just due to crit item changes. No you haven't pointed out something obvious. That whole bunch of people who work on game balance for many years and actually do it for the living have way higher competence than you to determine it. Secondly, they probably already though about what you said before they even introduced the changes. Just sayin'. If it was so easy to make 'perfect balance' whatever that means, we would already have it. We don't, because it's not easy. And what you're suggesting doesn't solve anything. I also remember half a year there was so much crying about how bruisers are useless, the infamous and not very bright hashinshin rant was a thing at winter. And as I've predicted when and was downvoted, we are here again, no complaining how other champions have too much damage xD
This current balance team works for Riot only since mid season 6, before Ghostcrawler and meddler, there was morello who did the balancing. Why do you think season 3 to 5 were league's glory times? Because Morello did them. The current balance team together cannot hold a candle to the old balance leader alone. PS: Your message is true, which only further underlines that the current balance team cannot compare to the previous one. Meddler and Ghostcrawler both admitted that they do not really play the game at all, and Ghostcrawler actually displayed his lack of facts over LoL by getting an argument debunked by his own coworker during an interview.

: Unlike other servers, Eune consists of very bad players that have no ambition to improve, up until mid Master/Challenger which is why i think it's Euw is better on this one. Euw might also be toxic but unlike Eune, there are players that strive to play with their idols so they don't abandon their ship so easily and continue grinding. You may find on Euw a tons of toxic players, but unlike Eune it's less likely to get inted,trolled or afkd on. i agree on the patch thing. Ever since new meta was introduced, people just find more ways to be toxic and troll, cause it feels justified. Before when you'd get some mage as support, you'd know you are fucked and that he is probably trolling you and u had an excuse to report him for it. But now, this is an excuse to troll every game without getting punished, because you know system will say 'its a meta thing' or if you get flamed you'd get 'people are just not yet used to this meta which makes them little edgy so its ok' .
EuW is worse, believe me. been there since i played lol, EuW is the birthplace of the Meta-challenge, which basically is make the worst build on the worst champs in pvp gamemodes. And that people are more toxic leads to more trollings because people in euw have this weird deluded "if you piss me off, you deserve to lose because im more important than you are" kinda mentality. if they cant have it their way, they will go beyond any and every length to make sure you dont get to enjoy the game at all.
