: What was league like, when it was in it's most "balanced" state?
It's not comparable, things have changed so much it's not even the same game. Almost every champions, abilities and items have been reworked. I would say tho that the game used to be much more segmented into mmo-type class with clear strenght and weaknesses and was easier for ppl to understand. Nowadays, it's very hard to make the distinction between divers and assassins for instance. Ultimately, it became to a point where every type of champ could do the same thing except they've different kit to achieve it instead of having a clear purpose to the group.
: Worst ranked game I've played ever. I feel like uninstalling. Need help/advice.
Need more information to help you. Specifically what you did before and post lvl3. I suspect you pushed the lane which gave him free engages a lot so he got fed and dove you. Am I right?
: Flamed By Riot Employee
You also fueled the whole situation. If you're feeding and throwing, own it and just keep quiet. Looks like you went afk top to piss him off which legit looks like assisting enemy team. Besides, he doesnt read that toxic. Remove this witch hunt post already.
: I feel like certain modes in Nexus Blitz should fully reset your character.
I would suggest a restricted champ reset so that once the events you mention end, you still have the cooldowns + hp and mana that you had before the event started. I would also appreciate being able to buy items while the event is loading and while we're waiting.
: Why as a Bronze 4 player am i being constantly placed against Silver 5 and 4 players
Your MMR games tend to be around 1,1-1,2k elo which is not bad. Looks like your mmr is rather around Bronze 1 ongoing to silver. I assume you gain 25-30 LP ish per win, right?

I understand how that runes works and you're partially wrong since it's working aswell on ppl who have the rune. Tested on my adc during that specific game.
: [Problems with Wukong] , A present from Wukong mains to Riot's balance and Design teams
I've never been a wukong player but I think he should be mega top-top number 1 priority for a rework. I mean this champ is so outdated in every aspect. Even amumu and volibear received some attention at some point but wukong nothing. It's a bit crazy imo.

: Games feel like they end faster now
Ive to aggree. Games seems to end faster . However, this sensation may come from the brutal transition after 14 min. It feels like going straight in late game.
Rioter Comments
: Alright it was funny for a while, now revert it.
Agreed. The old iteration was strong but this one is even stronger. Karthus godlike right now spaming DH now and Meldler is thinking that it's because the lane last on average 2 min longer xD !

: Riot, you might need to consider something what I call the "Arabic Meaning"
If O meant "him" in french, it would have meant fuck him too because neek sounds the same as "nique" which means actual fucking.

: Why do people think Neeko being a lesbian is an issue?
Ppl can't pass though sexuality. If you're gay, you already know it. PPl tend to be reduced to be "the gay person" no matter what. A few lines in special intereaction with females is enough for the ppl to consider her sexuality to be central in the character even though it's a barely existing component in her character. Story of your lives, right?
: So is Neeko's ult just a better Amumu ult?
Her ult radius is the same as pre-nerf amumu I think.

: Can't wait to see how utterly shit Riot makes the game this season with the "Soon" excuse
Looking at PBE and the games I've done there, I really didn't see any real changes overally. That turret plating thing that everyone is happy about doesn't really extend laning phase. I find them pretty weak considering the objective. Not to mention that it's a double-edged sword because of the gold income it provides. Assuming you're behind and not able to contain the push then you're getting even more behind than now. I don't think many ppl will be happy about this. Get ready to get disappointed honestly.

Still no date for the release of the 8.23. It's just annoying af. All good.

: I double checked, I had just assumed my honor was 0, its locked at 1. >whether or not you actually tried to calm the situation but unless I'm wrong your logs doesn't seem to go in that sense. Im not going to say this was my finest moment, or that my composure was fully intact, but I was under the assumption that you had to be pretty consistently toxic to get a punishment. What I wanted was for people to play, and stop focusing on flaming me. Looking at the log I know I didnt inspire people as well as I wished I could. There is only one chat log, because I dont even typed some games aside from GJ, or group, or call for an objective split like " X solo drag, rest group mid" kind of stuff. I understand that people will try to find my guilt in this matter, and lets say I crossed a line. What I feel is the error here is that I was punished for that chat log in ONE game. That ONE game, that ONE chat log, resulted in a punishment from the system, and that seems extreme does it not? I know the system tells you when your report results in a punishment, and Iv had some terrible things said to me that didnt get people punished... It seems unjust that my chat log devoid of insults, name calling, slurs, etc. should be enough for a no warning instant punishment.

It seems unjust that my chat log devoid of insults, name calling, slurs, etc. should be enough for a no warning instant punishment. You have to accept that league is toxic and those situation can happen in any game. You also have to accept that its all automated. It seems extreme yes but take it as a reminder that you should not give any type of attention to ppl who are flaming you and asking for reports. They're not worth it. Ive been chat restricted once 5 years ago for some similar stuff, its not the end of the world trust me so dont over react to it and treat it as reminder. But again, try to reach a real person with your ticket because nobody here has any kind of authority of your case.
: League makes me depressed.
Hey, You're most certaintly in an IRL bad spot right now and you should seek for a professional to sort things out. It's common for ppl to look for shelter in video game but league has many component that makes it a trap because it generates a lot of adrénaline. But dont worry, you will be fine and most of all take care of yourself. Its not a bad idea to step out from the game a bit and focus on stuff that brings joy to you.
: Really supprised about this punishment...
Bear in minds that reports have to be validated first so when someone reports there's no reason to worry if you haven't done anything wrong. Now what is really important is this : even if ppl are asking others to report your for flaming/inting/afk, the best thing to do is to not defend your case during the game otherwise the automated system may "think" you were actually flaming. Simply put, ignore the whole situation, don't respond and type /mute all and you'll be fine. I advice you to respond to Sir. Blitzbot until you reach a real person to get more clarification. Although, when involved in such things, I assume that the only thing that may salvage you is whether or not you actually tried to calm the situation but unless I'm wrong your logs doesn't seem to go in that sense. If you're down to lvl0 honor for that, it also means that you were already lvl1 hence that you had a similar penalty recently. You should be careful if you don't want your account to get a banned.

I don't think she needs to be addressed. She counters all those bs picks destroying midlane right and that's completly fine imo. Soon nocturne ppl will say that nocturne needs to be addressed midlane because it counters irelia?

: Possibly unpopular opinion on this season's ranked rewards
I'm honor 5 and the only punishement I ever had was a chat restriction 5 years ago so I've no personal interest in this system but those are my 2 cents. It would be only fair if anyone that would've been punished no matter when during the season would've been stripped of rewards. The fact that it's tied to the end of the season is ridiculous. It does mean that being punished in the beginning of the season is fine but not at the end of the season. The whole system is ridiculous and I'm glad they put this "second chance" in place. Besides, it only applies to ppl who got chat-restricted which the the lightest punishement and can happen to anybody even to the kindest ppl on a bad day. We're talking about a year long of grind year here being revoked by automated system that litteraly spam false-positive.

: Does anyone else feel like Riot doesn't know how to handle Tanks anymore?
For me those tanks are outclassed by bruisers at the moment. They provide enough cc for a target to be killed, have huge amount of damage and can stack hp to increase their damage while making them actually tankier than tanks building armor and mr items because of true damage everywhere. There's no reason to pick any of those unless they kit fits the support role.
