: Dear Riot I´d like to talk about Evelyn for a second
This buff seems to me like a pat on the head for low elo players like me while not changing much for the pros. Unlike what you mentioned I rarely get to kill anything with just q and e, hence probably why I'm considered a scrub. So this buff helps me a lot. Maybe that was Riots intention? I don't know.
: Why is Sylas so buff looking?
It looks good which is all the reason they fucking need. Guess what, every damn thing you see in games and movies (even the supposedly realistic things) get beautified because that's what people like.

I sure hope they put something good into the shop so that the effort of grinding the events pays off (where did they say that about the event skins?). Buying tokens directly is not meant for me so I gotta go at it steadily with the passes.

Not to forget that first timing never was “part of the experience“ for anything but the free rotation or the beginners with no champs. People use the concept of randomness as foundation for this asinine idea, saying it was “meant“ to be truly random when ARAM never was truly random from the very start. Especially not after they added rerolls. Fact is that making all champs available doesn't make ARAM any better. It just switches out one arguably lesser problem (if ARAM accounts even are a problem) for another, bigger one while also spitting on the people that enjoy the mode as it is. And why? Because people like OP get salty when they see Lux too often and want to remold the mode to even the ground for them because they found it necessary to buy every champ. Sounds like a wish made out of spite instead of reason to me. But hey, I've never seen a post that started with “I just played a game where...“ that didn't belong in the RANT subforum.

Hotarµ (NA)
: >you can have point click CC. nothing bad about it. theres nothing wrong if 1-2 skills on a champion have no "counterplay" as long as the other 2 skills do have counterplay The problem is that champions with point & click CC are either: 1 - Impossible to balance because they have point & click CC 2 - Only picked/are relevant because of that CC I also feel the need to mention that yeah, point & clicks really don't have much counterplay. You have two options: Don't get in range of the ability or buy a QSS. There is no dodging, there is no baiting/juking the ability, there is nothing you can do except get hit or don't get hit, and that is not good game design to most people. >as long as the kit feels cool, feels fun, and is a good theme. fun to play. thats what matters ...no, gameplay and health matters as well. Just because a champion is fun, cool, and has a good theme does not mean they shouldn't be balanced in terms of gameplay. "Fun to play against" is very subjective and shouldn't be weighed as heavily, you could make the argument that it shouldn't be taken into account at all actually. But League of Legends is a _game_, the gameplay aspect of it is pretty important. >some champs had dumb kits. like old sion. old yorick. old poppy. they just felt stupid Care to elaborate? I'm kind of confused, why are old Sion and old Poppy stupid but current Fiddlesticks and current Mundo _not_ stupid? What specifically makes them less stupid? They were all from the same time period with glaring issues of their own, it sounds like you're just picking and choosing which champions should be changed.

I don't like to play more than 2/3s of the roster (and that includes nonsense like Jayce, Xerath or Ziggs). Even with a limited champ pool I have trouble getting a champ I enjoy. Might as well kiss goodbye to the mode if have to play all the shit I purposely avoided in all other modes by not buying them You got rerolls for that. Rerolls you'd be getting 1-2 of every game because with 140+ characters, you're bound to have the occasional one you dislike. And hey, unless you hate over 75% of the roster you're bound to get champs you either enjoy or don't mind playing a ton of the time. And naw, I didn't sign up for "limited champ pools and unfair comps every game". I signed up for "Everyone gets a random champion and you make do with a random team". The failure is on Riot for not putting forth what is advertised here. "ARAM" is all random all mid. Not "All certain champions I like to play all mid". But all this is proving is that Riot will just cater to those who think in a similar fashion: I only want to play 10 very specific (coincidentally poke) champions every single game and I'll keep droppin' them dollah dollah bills if ya give me what I want.

No. Actually facing people with limited champ pools and having unfair comps is what you signed up for. If you don't like it, too bad. People will never invest in the entire champion pool nor should they be forced too because you want to try to enforce fairness in a mode that is intrinsically unfair.

These threads never disappoint with all the people only joking about the amount of money the OP did spent. Maybe it's just me, but I find that very annoying. I wonder how many whales feel the same way as you op. I also wonder if spending no money is the answer if the sentiment isn't shared with enough people. If one or two percent of the community buys eternals, I can imagine that they already profit from it. Might as well keep buying skins to remind them where their real focus should be, unless you want to make a statement to Riot in general (not just eternals), and stop spending altogether. It's issues like this that remind me that players would need easier and more accessible tools to form a unified voice across multiple platforms. Because "you don't like it, don't buy it" just doesn't work when one fishy implementation is just an indication that the next one is on the way.

Or maybe, just maybe whenever someone has a good concept he can present it and sell it to his peers after which they decide to move on with the concept. If Lux is popular among Rioters, it would make sense then that she gets more skins. I dunno.

Btw I know from other rodents that they might start killing each other if their living space is too small. That happens in nature too. So a bigger cage is definitely a good idea.
: If I remember correctly, from time to time there was always some reddit thread asking Riot for something expensive, to show support/wealth, so they made prestige skins(maybe gemstone skins were first answer). Also, imo many balance choices are unfortunetely effected by vocal minority. And latest one being old cursor. They also changed Kaisa little bit, bcs reddit/boards thought Her cleavege was too much iirc.
