I think people in Diamond 3 and higher are good, everyone else isn't. This is because I never made it to Diamond 3, so the players there have to be good, because if they were bad I would have made it there.

I play for fun because playing for fun makes me play better than when I play to win. It makes me way more tilt resistant and helps me to keep a positive attitude as well as my head in the game.

: Anyone who plays WoW, a question.
I can't say for the current content, but past content had very well designed and very challenging raids, but you really need a good guild for that. Beating a raid for the first time is just an amazing experience, but many guilds fall apart before that out of frustration. These days you get the option to clear raids on incredibly easy difficulty to experience the content without of having to put in a lot of work, so failing often at the real thing is something a lot of players these days can't handle.
: Riot employee, please look at this and contact me.
You can just contact Riot yourself along with everything you got by opening a ticket under the support section on top of the browser window.
: just revert all the Riven buffs already
I feel the problem right now isn't Riven, but that lethality is making it so easy for her to deal almost true damage. But as long as you build some armor you should be able to beat her because she has barely any build in defense. I usually build Ninja Tabi into Chain Armor and then smack her to death with my base damages.
: What makes a diver less durable than a juggernaut?
Juggernauts deal more damage and are more tanky than divers, but divers have more mobility. This is largely due to how the individual champions scale. Diver for example usually have to build 2 or 3 damage items to deal the damage juggernauts deal with just 1 damage item. Furthermore these damage items juggernauts build usually already have some tank stats on them, while divers build items like Triforce and BOTRK who don't have that many tank stats on them when comparing them to the likes of a Black Cleaver or a Sterak's Gage. In other words, diver need to build more offensive items and thus get less tanky than juggernauts, but come with mobility. Juggernauts on the other hand usually have very good base damages on their abilities and thus only build 1 damage item, and thus become more tanky. You may not feel like it is this way, because divers tend to rack up a lot of kills and snowball harder than juggernauts thanks to their mobility, and thus are more likely to become a force of nature (rip).

: Why does every summoner get nerfed when it sees play?
It's done to further define Exhaust's niche. Currently Exhaust is an all rounder and just good in every bot lane scenario. These nerfs keep Exhaust viable as an assassin counter while also opening up the botlane meta for Ignite and thus kill lanes. (also kill lanes are much flashier and more fun to watch so it's probably aimed at LCS and wasn't really a balancing decision)

: People screaming at Riot for "enforcing meta" are full of crap.
Except for that I don't. I'm fine with unconventional picks on my team as long as they give it their best and try to win. As far as I can remember I have never flamed or reported anyone for the champion they have picked. Your entire thread is a giant fail because you ave no idea about the people that support the Nunu main and just suspect they are hypocrites that are intolerant of unconventional picks themselves, and just use the opportunity to bash Riot. I in fact love unconventional picks and want to see them succeed, like I expressed under the OP of the Nunu main. If you go back in my post history you will see posts done by me complaining that Riot is steadily removing unconventional builds from the game, like AP Tristana which got absolutely destroyed, and other posts discussing unconventional picks like post rework AP Evelynn mid which everyone thought to be a garbage troll pick for midlane. I stand as far as I can remember by my principles and practice what I preach. So yeah, you're wrong.

1. KDAs mean nothing. 2. The game is decided by the worst player, not by the best. 3. That means if you can constantly outperform your peers you will eventually climb. So, in conclusion: Your KDAs may suck, but as long as you don't suck during mid/late game in your positioning/objective control, you will win more games than you lose. Look at me, my KDAs suck as well. Yet I manage to climb to Platinum season after season. This isn't luck, it's just me being a Platinum level player.

I just realized. Getting auto filled into a roll I'm not familiar wit also impacts my game experience in a negative way. Better report Riot.

: Here we are again! The case of_ “Unusual Pick that Throws A Game on Its head”_ vs _“The Teammates going WTF Is Going On”_. [If you’re just tuning in we previously covered this topic with a similar case in December: “Support Singed isn't bannable, but that's not the point”. ]( We feel that the situation between these two edge cases are very similar. But it’s obvious we need to keep updating a few processes to smooth out any rare repeats in the future. And rare is what we’d call this; it’s a very unique edge case that seems to only present itself once every few months among thousands of audits that we process. Let’s re-iterate our stance from before: **Q: Can I get banned for choosing a champion or strategy that is outside the current meta?** A: 100% no. Choosing a champion or strategy outside of the current meta is not a factor we take into account when reviewing accounts. On any given day tens of thousands of players are making unusual picks in the game and they’ll never receive penalties in any form. **Q: So why does this issue keep coming up? What makes it different?** A: Riot Gromp said it best in the previous post when they stated: “...common sense and good sportsmanship say that experimenting players need to clearly communicate intent and win conditions to their teammates.” League of Legends is a team game and sometimes the biggest challenge can be coordinating with 4 other strangers who share a common goal; victory. If a player is going to rewrite the rules for the rest of their team then there is more pressure to properly communicate to everyone what they want the plan to be, and what they think everyone should do to achieve it. But wait! Communication doesn’t stop after you press the Enter button on your keyboard; and that’s where we saw a problem in this particular case. All of us need to be aware of the difference of communicating “with” someone vs. communicating “at” someone. _Telling your team what you’re going to do and then ignoring them isn’t really working with them it’s holding them hostage_. Telling your team what you want to do and actually working towards a common plan is a central part to playing any team based game. In this case what we observed was an expert Nunu counter-jungler throwing the meta on it’s head with a respectable win rate of 53%. While pretty impressive on it’s own, we also found that nearly 50% of their games were reported by teammates as frustrating and unfun. Keep in mind, this isn’t just teammates in losing games, this is teammates across all of his games; victories included. The message was pretty clear to us, this player is serious about_ Making Nunu Great Again_ but they are leaving a trail of dissatisfaction, frustration, and anger in their wake. Winning is not the end all be all of League. We want players to have fun but not at the expense of teammates. Ideally this means players will coordinate among themselves in a given match and react to the unique circumstances they end up in. If a player is consistently forcing “their vision” on the rest of the team **and **refusing to adapt to their needs we reserve the right to intervene. That’s what happened here (and before with the Singed case); players cried out how terrible the experience was for them and we intervened. Moving forward we’re going to keep updating our processes for these edge cases. We will still be on the lookout for situations where a player is creating a really negative experience for everyone else and we will intervene when necessary. In this case it’s undeniable that TakeTheDraw wants to win even if their approach leaves a lot to be desired. The effects on others in his games were enough for us to lock the account and we stand by that. But our agents were not properly prepared with a process to handle this edge case when they wrote in and that is on me. I will be working with the team to clarify an escalation process that emphasizes clearer feedback and opens the door for ban reductions if we believe that someone can make changes to their play style allowing them to continue crushing the meta but not at the expense of their teammates.
"We won't say outright that playing off meta is banable, but it is." -Riot 2k18-1
: actually, that person said that they would agree with the surrender vote every time because the carrying player's attitude or gameplay was toxic if the team agrees to a surrender, there is nothing the "carry" can do I had a game once where our team had 2 hard carries but the other 3 players no longer felt like playing and were actively trying to end the game one hard carry got disconnected due to riot's server issues at the time and that 3 vote ended the game even in real life, people only follow leaders, not egotistical and statistical maniacs effectively, if the players are no longer in the game of their own volition, that hard carry has hijacked the game. Although not as major as an actual hijacker, it is still a disruption of gameplay and worthy of being punished by the community I met with an absolute jerk once in bot matches who whined and cried because I as lux was getting kills and ruining his pentas. It was my first game as lux in months and I wanted to practice with her...the jerk may have gone 61/2 in a bot match, but he used every dirty trick in the book to do it and even stalled the game so that he and his premade could get 5 pentakills... he had the nerve to say I was a bad player when I was forced out of position and left alone top lane against 2 stat bots that lux could not even attempt to beat until level 6 then I hit level 6 and he rushes in and steals BOTH OF THEM after my hard work hard carries don't even have to communicate to irritate their fellow players and it is often worse when they do communicate. Meta just breaks this game and it was better when jungler was the niche pick, not "required" bring back 2 - 1 - 2 lanes!
Just for the record I didn't mean to imply that having a flaming player is not a bad experience and flamers should get punished. My point was merely that Riot got their priorities mixed up, at least in my opinion.
: ever watch the movie idiocracy? I'm fairly certain we are seeing the results n real time.
I wouldn't go THAT far, but it certainly is an amazing picture.
: Honestly you should not be held hostage for how you want to play if you are not costing your team games and clearly you are not lol the mindset of the masses and boards just blows my mind. So many special snowflakes...when will they realize that when they get too numerous they are no longer special!!
Exactly. For Riot it's "feelings > winning", which is also why they permaban you if you use the wrong word but do nothing if you intentionally lose entire games on your own (as long as you don't make it too obvious). This mentality is also mirrored in the community, just the other day I saw some thread of someone saying that he'd rather surrender a game than win it if the carrying person flames his team, and it got like 50 upvotes or something. I mean, what exactly is the mute button for?
: 14 day ban because playing Nunu Support with Smite is "stealing other people's roles"...?
Damn that sucks. I used to play Smite Nunu support as well, but it wasn't effective for me (probably because I'm much worse at it than you). Nice to see someone succeeding with this build. But the thing is that since back in "ye olde days" a lot changed. Riot these days actually enforces the meta through their reporting system and the Teambuilder thingy, so I don't think they'll lift the suspension and I see a permaban coming your way if you continue with your """"""""toxic"""""""" behavior. I personally really like what you're doing, especially since I had the same idea some time ago and I like to see it succeed.

Irelia was good in season 1 and after the triforce buff at the very end of season 2, when she shared the toplane alongside Jax, Jayce and Darius. I really liked this big 4 toplane meta. You only took teleport when you expected you'd lose your lane, otherwise you'd take ignite. Fun times. :) My personal favorite season was season 3 though, because of the jungle rework (Spirit of the Ancient Golem + Udyr = Insanity).

: I can see it if they were to professionally talk it over with each other come up with a deal like some of the profit is given back to Disney since i believe Disney has now taken over George Lucas company. You did bring up a point of not taking the original characters or anything so yeah it might be more possible if you put it that way. There has to be some high up Riot employee that can reach out to the company and just ask or i imagine they know what boundaries they can work around already without engaging into a lawsuit.
As I said it's an **exclusive** deal (the one with EA). I don't think there's a lot of room there for negotiations. The deal probably costed EA hundreds of millions, if not billions, so if Disney were to give an ok to Riot to create a Star Wars skin lineup there'd a be an extraordinarily expensive lawsuit just around Disney's corner. As I said, they even go after fan projects that wouldn't generate any revenue, just because they could take away from the spotlight of EA's games. Again, highly unlikely. Keep in mind that EA is not stupid. The contract is most likely 100% with no room for "working around boundaries". EA expects to make billions off of that deal, which is precisely as much as Disney would have to pay them if they were to break the contact. I'm sure Riot already tried talking to them, as much as I am sure that they got shut down or confronted with an unreasonable offer. These companies don't fool around when there's literally billions on the field, so unless Riot hands over a fortune of the revenue (and probably a lot upfront as well) it won't happen.
