: There's no single Ionian language, it's very regional.
So regional languages in what way exactly? Like in germany, or generally middle/east europe, where the number of different accents and special words per dialect just gets crazy once you are out in the country, or like India where they literally have a 1652 different languages (even if only 150 of them are considered to have a relevant number of speakers accoding to google). So is there one overarching basis that gets used different from village to village, or are they really different languages completly?

: Real S**t
No thanks. My team is completly replaceable every game. if my team in this game is undenyably garbage I'd rather afk and force a surrender and never see these failures again in the hope of getting a better team as fast as possile.

Mans got a point, any other season, this would have him downvoted to oblivion and back. The fact that its on the front page shows their are serious fundamental problems with the game.
Tbh I didn't believe that this rant-threat would take off this hard. I expected some snarky sacastic replies and maybe 10 downvotes before it vanished into oblivion, but instead, WOOP frontpage in not even an hour or so. That alone is an indicator that something is clearly broken somewhere...

I think the Edlritch aspect should be a very core element, mostly around the question "Is that THING in the suit still Nautilus, even if drastically changed? Or is it something else that just thinks it is?". An otherworldly being that just manifested in this walking prison, all it knows the fragments of a now dead man. Also an interesting take on the matter I think. It reminds me a bit of my favourite game I had for the GBA way back when I was a kid: Metroid Fusion. In there the "big bad" in the game is pretty much yourself - in the way that Samus gets infected by a weird alien goo parasite and most of her combat suit that is connected with her body at some parts has to be removed suregically. HOWEVER, the infected parts reassambled themselves and wandered off (aka used a power bomb and killed everyone in the process), the mockery of a human being, but powered by the primitive will of the X parasites. The problem: it's also got the powers of Samus during her prime, and meanwhile you as a player start with absolutely nothing, which makes most encounters certain death. So the player is constantly in fear of this twisted mirror image of what they once had been in their prime, a theme I have rarely seen in other games if I am honest and that surely has potential for some GREAT eldritch storytelling!
: In my experience, it's spite, either by the feeder or someone who hates the feeder. The feeder will try to surrender and someone will vote no because "I'm not going to just let you int your way out of this game". I'll admit that I'm definitely guilty of this sometimes, especially in games where the rest of the team is doing ok. "You dug this hole, now lay in it while we try to carry your worthless ass" is basically my thought process. The opposite is when the feeder believes that his feeding is someone else's fault and will vote no on surrender votes just to waste their time. We've all seen the adc that absolutely despises his support and felt like he got trolled, so he'll vote no to surrender to waste as much of that supports time as possible. TL;DR If one person on the team really dislikes another person on the team, the chances of a successful surrender go **way** down.
Isn't that weird? I mean if I can't stand someone why not choose the option that gets me rid of them as fast as possible? In this case, ending the game and never seeing them ever again?
: The worst is when you do actually manage to stall it out, but the fuckhead who refused to surrender earlier is the one that ends up throwing the game later on anyway. I'm looking at you, Vayne players.
It's so weird. If I am an ADC that is 0/5 and barely tickels the enemy support with my damage, then usually I'd say to myself "well, the things I can do amount to ZERO", and unless someone on the team can compensate, like having a 10 kill Zed or something, the only LOGICAL CONCLUSION is to surrender. But no, it is always the worst people that block the hardest. I wonder if their inability to see when a game is over is just another indicator of how unskilled they are...

: Dynami...Flex Queue is/was a joke and if they ever try to re-implement it as the sole way to play League they will lose a *very* significant portion of their playerbase. Dynamic Queue was literally the worst thing Riot has ever tried to implement into the game and was hated by nearly everyone. There's no way Riot is stupid enough to try to walk down that road again, especially so soon after it crashed and burned
Oh do not underestimate the stupidity or designers/high level corporate people in large meetings. Especially when one guy has that one concept as "his thing" that he totally needs to push, because everything else would be ultimate dishonor. Dynamic Queue always had ONE economical goal: appeal to the casual playerbase. It makes no sense to focus on devout fans and longtime-players - those have already spent their money on skins and what not, and chances that they buy a new skin are lower because of "well i could buy it but I already got one for this champ so... nah". But completly fresh players that drag their friends into it, who posess almost no skins and have a wallet untouched by Riot yet... I can see how some guys on the company start drooling at that thought. The whole thing just has major flaws: given how hard league has blown up, there are limits to growth. Everyone who once got interested in the game has downloaded and played it, and they either stuck or left. The amount of completly "new" people you could bring in is abyssimally low when compared to games with normal reach/popularity. And the second issue: in the long run this will fuck over the game and the competitive integrity to the point where people just pack their bags and leave, and once the newly acquired casuals wander off to a new game, you might have generated short term profits, but lost players in total, which I guess is what already happened, because Riot not releasing any numbers on the active players is kinda sketchy if you ask me. But chances are on the high decision-making level no one has learned a darn thing and the premise of potential profit is too alluring to not fuck up everything...
: I wish the enemy teams would surrender more too. I have tons of games where it's clear we've won by 15 minutes but they still make us play to 20 minutes, get a free baron, and then end 3 minutes later. 1 fucking guy wasted 8 minutes of 10 peoples time just so he could get it shoved up his butt a few more times. Don't be an asshole: surrender games that are clearly over.
Yeah totally. I think the surrender vote should not be 4-1 to be succesful. If the majority wants to go, then it ends. Simple as that. But nooo because of that a blockhead premade-duo we can stall out until 30 and then lose anyways.
Rioter Comments
: 39.4% of games that are a losing game for the first 20minutes, are won. Those odds aren't bad. Stop being salty, play it out.
Too bad that "losing game" is a very vague definition. Yeah sure if your team has 22 kills but the enemy has 24, yes you are behind in score but it is still winnable. Meanwhile I just had to afk-force the end of a game that had the score of 4-19 at the 15 minute mark. Yeah we could have stalled out and maybe made it to minute 25 or even 30, but what's the point? These statistics, assuming they are from Riot, are a publicity scam, nothing more. If you wanna convince me, show me games that have turned despite a 10+ score difference at minute 15. I can assure you, it will not even be 1%. Yeah sure I might miss out on those 1% wins due to afk-forcing the surrender, but let's be real, I might as well play dozends of other matches with the time saved, EVEN WITH BEING IN PERPETUAL LOW PRIORITY QUEUE.

: Tell me how their "secret agenda to make all games one sided stomps" would further their goal of milking the game?
No it's not intentional as in the result of an active design decision. It's more the result of trying to maintain the game with a minimum of resources and not adressing the underlying issues for years even that results in this state.
: hey snowballing is kinda ridiculous but IF you AFK cause of it you're definitely the shithead in the situation, game sucks when it happens but if they wanna play it out, why the fuck are you mad if you aren't paying for your time when you're playing lol. Edlit: reducing FF timer is not the way to go, cause you just get more salty shits who fuck up before the jg kills 2 camps spamming it for 15 minutes straight instead of the 10 or so now.

: So many of these threads and all saying the same thing. Maybe Riot can pull their fucking heads out of their asses and listen.
My theory is that they just leave this game to die, milk it while it's still played while maintaining a minimum of staff for content development and balancing. You know what Riot's creative output is beside like 6 skins a month? One new character every 8 weeks, or a VGU, which is even less time-intensive. I made the mistake of judging Riot by the Indie-Dev standard that might have applied when they once started out, but even by that level it is just pathetic. Same thing with lore - the few teeny tiny bits we get are good, but apart from that... NOTHING. You know what some small indie studios crank out in a few month's time? A HELLA LOT in some cases, I tell you that. The thing is, they probably got something new in development, but releasing it while league is still hot would mean splitting their playerbase between two games, not good when you ride the F2P model. At the same time, Esports finances itself through sponsoring and advertising - meaning admitting this game is slowly going down would inevitably hurt Esport profits. Given how little they care in the last years, THIS is the conclusion I have come to. They will milk this game with the skins and then let it croak... and skin money is a LOT. Even if only 0,001% of players buys a new 10 bucks skin, given the massive playerbase that's still a six-figure income and more, WAY more than it takes for one VFX desinger to sit down and put some fancy sparkles on an existing or slightly modified model and get a splash artist to work. You know, small indie companies overprice their optional products because its a way of the players to say thanks if they have the money. however, it is NOT the main content, it's a small bonus. And a big company like Riot that can produce them cheaper still charging that much is just... pretty disgusting when you think about it.

It's like saying "Jesus could walk on water, why can't you?" The game feels like shit to most of the playerbase, especially veterans, so why should we give two shits about what Challengers think. We play the game to have fun, Riot ruined that, why do I care what challengers think? If anything they share the blame since RIot made most of these changes for those high elo players so their precious LCS would be watchable, and it still garbage because the morons tried to make the game something its not.
: Show replay of unwinnable game that wasn't surrendered in silver+ elo
Wow you must really have no friends. Are you also that annoying in real life?
: Hello am I anyone? Yes I'm someone hello do I believe you? No. What are you afraid of i just want to teach you how to win hard games so u stop stealing my elo
Are you that kind of person that never gets any hints in a social setting, and just keeps talking despite his presence is definetly not wanted? Maybe you should learn when it is time to shut up, the numerous downvotes you got in this thread should have been obvious enough tbh...
: Usually i never surrender thinking there is always a chance for a comeback, but recently a comeback just seems like an illusion, from my last 20 OBVIOUSLY lost games (as far as i can remember) i got one or two combeacks out of them, and as far as i can remember it was just because the enemy had shit lategame champs and my whole team champs that scale heavily into late game, but yeah, if the enemy used their brain there and ended early, they coulda won easy, and trying to do a comeback just seems like a waste of nerves and times atm, so rather surr 15 if the game is 15-4
Yeah and even if that means forcing through going afk, that's STILL the better thing to do. I wonder just how do you fuck up a system so bad that the only efficient way to go through it is to be toxic? I'd rather risk my account getting banned than pumping all them nerves and energy into clearly lost games. Says quite a lot about HOW impossible comebacks are...
: There are turd shields in the beginning of the game every summoners rift five V5 that you play where you unaware of this ? Obvious
Not that they ammount to much considering how easy towers crumble in every game. Also botlane turrets are extra fragile by design. So much for this precious "comeback mechanic".

Whatever the good man is smoking, I'd like to have a bit for myself. Appeaars to be quite the good stuff if it sends you back in time...
: serious question. does anyone actually buy emotes?
No. Absolutely overpriced. The only thing I am willing to pay for is actual content, by Riot stopped delivering on that years ago...
: Thoughts?
I really like the idea of tuning the needed votes down to 3. I am sick of random premades holding me hostage in a lost game tbh.
: No, they have always complained about the game as a whole. It's nothing new. Sometimes I'll get notifications on old posts of mine where people are saying the same things they're saying now (rather, kind of like a madlib where you bitch about the same things on different champs/items). Sometimes I'll watch old vids on youtube where people say all the same things OP is saying, but two or three years ago. It's really nothing new. Every year, the game is dying. Every year, it's different.
So we had problems every year, and NEVER were they adressed so they peristed until today? Boy no wonder that people are leaving this game in the dust... I would only have so much hope left after years of Riot doing jack shit to solve the underlying problems.
: >Is my behavior toxic? Obviously. Do I give a shit? No. All I provide is a honst and logical response to the inherent system with the goal to get as many ranked games HF getting banned lmao.
You know, back in the day that would have been scary. And yet, somehow Riot turned this game into such a shitfest that now... I just don't really feel bothered by that anymore? This game is no longer about skill, so what do I have to prove with a high rank? I have no money on this account either save for maybe 10-20 bucks spend over a time peroid of 5+ years. It would not even stop me from playing the game as account generation is completly free. Sure it would be a mild inconvenience, but nothing more. Not to mention that my reply will most likely be "well ok, then let's play something else then" without it really bothering me. And years ago, I was a zealous follower of this game. Almost like a religious believer. And yet Riot turned even me away with how they changed it, so I wonder just HOW bad they fucked up...
: They say this every year too.
Hmm, but things have changed. People have complained before, but never about the game AS A WHOLE. Like, "X is OP", "wtf why always bad players on my team", and so on has been on the boards, or back then "the forums" since season 1. But what I see here recently is just... on a whole new level. It feels to me like players are already packing their bags, and all that remains on the forums are those bitter with the situation that are not yet willing to let go, and it gets a bit bitterer every week... Note here: bitter, not angry. That's the core difference. Angry people actually CARE. Bitter people have pretty much given up already, steadily losing hope that Riot will even get anything done.
: So you telling me that at the moment your game was (lost) if ur whole team was replaced with 5 challenger• players they still wouldn't be able to win ? I want profit of this
No, they would not. Personal skill is only amounts to that much when it's up against bare numbers. Once one team is so fed that they just can throw themselves against the enemy base and still profit of that, because every enemy in their way is simply maimed to death by the raw damage - and that implies a totally brain dead enemy team. It's mostly enough that when five are needed to succesfully hold up four, that's one more free player that can take objectives. Not to mention that it would be also highly champ dependant. Sure there are high-skill champions that can do the famous "1vs5", but if your team has an Ashe as adc, well what is she going to do? There are limits to what a single champion can do, and if the full arsenal of options has already been exhausted, then suddenly you will not open up new paths just because another player is on it. Or to make it short: Skill doesn't matter much if you can't express it, because the snowballed enemy Rengar just deletes you before you can even show anything of your skills, and as far as I know, making "Big dick plays" or whatever it is called nowadays, is a bit hard to do when you are dead.
: Every year: "LEAGUE IS DYING AND HERE'S WHY"
Exept this time they appear to have a point: After over half a decade of playing this game religiously I dropped out for several months, and all I have seen since coming back some days ago make me feel even more disgusted than when I left back then. People alway comlained, but never before was the death of the game considered that much of a "fact". If this game was thriving so well, I wonder why Riot is no longer publishing any numbers on the player count...

I'd like for you to google the word "subjective"... and not make posts like that again.
Gee, ever wonder why in a world where everything is subjective and where everyone's opinion is equal, there's still a need for critics, professional reviewers and experts? Yes, you can have a subjective opinion. Everyone can have one. But that doesn't mean your opinion can't be utter garbage due to you lacking the adequate knownledge to judge the subject at hand accordingly. Subjectivity doesn't mean shit in an analysis of medial products. If THAT was the guinding principle why even bother doing anything at all? Nono, you got a thing, it either sets a standard or references to other aesthetics, and therefore is judged on how well it either fills the space it pushed itself into and how much it explores the topic it itself set out to do from the get-go. if someone who is apparently illiterate in the matter says otherwise, then well, he can say that, no one is stopping him from it. Doesn't change the fact that whatever glibberish leaves his mouth it's not worth listening to tho. God I hate this modern day "oh EVERYONE is right in their way"-thing. That's exactly the opposite of finding truth in anything.
Murl0ugh (NA)
: So only a select few are allowed to develope an opinion. Seems fair.
Oh theoretically everyone is capable of educating themselves on the subject that is discussed and theoretically everyone should be able to take part in the discussion even if they have no experience or knownledge whatsoever. In theory. But as it turns out, having participants that are complete illiterates on the matter on the discussion is nothing anyone actually wants, for obvious reasons. In simpler terms: Everyone can have an opinion, but the opinion of a noob is massively overpowered by one of an an expert. The only part where there is equality is that everyone can go educate themselves and stop being noobs with horrible opnions based of missing knownledge.
Kanzler (NA)
: Of all the things about which to be an elistist, you choose fantasy lore?
Given that fantasy and science fiction have been major fields of entertainment that have enthralled people of our culutre for over a century, I think it is normal to expect a certain level of literacy in these areas. Saying that it is "just entertaiment" or "just fantasy lore" is completly ignoring the decades of growth and complexity the genres have behind them, and hindering all chance of future growth by dumbing it down to the standards of the illiterate.
: You say that you're not saying my opinion is lesser, but it seriously sounds like it. Like I don't have the qualifications do have opinions about a video game character or something.
Yes theoretically everyone is equal, yet you have to admit that there are quite a lot of worthless dumbfucks in the world that you wouldn't exactly see associated with the level that you are on. Same thing applies here, that's all.
GreenLore (EUW)
: You know that she wasn't created by a single person? Multiple people work on a single champion.
Then it was a collective failure. Good to know there's not just one person at Riot who apparently took on the wrong profession...
: I feel the exact opposite
Ah then I think you can elaborate why Kai'Sa is in fact a very deep, complex and enthralling design that totally loots out the possibilities of the initial theme. If you can say with such certainty that you feel the xacty opposite about it, then you must surely be able to bring some solid arguments for it.
Ralanr (NA)
: Imo, She is a C+ champion. Passable but definitely could have been better.
Concept good, execution downright horrible. In total this might get a C+, but since the execution is what matter in the end, as that is the end result that ends up in the players' hands, the end grade is an E- at best. Take her back from the PBE, rework the whole thing based on the reactions now, and then we can talk. The only way it is passable is that the basic idea behind it has some appeal. But you can't play ideas, in this game you play CHAMPIONS. And if that part doesn't hold up, it's no good design.
: Well, I thought Kai'Sa was cool
Given low enough standards everything can be seen as cool. I mean, when I was 14 for instance, I found a lot of shit cool. Some part because I was a stupid little brat with a weird sense of aesthetics, but mostly, and that's the most important part: I simply didn't know enough stuff to have something to say in this matter. Now I see the theme, see how other stories and characters have build on it, compare it, and all I see is that Kai'Sa is a generic excuse for a champion, barely even qualifying as "lazy design". Generally something I see regulary on this board: people act like League and and some very basic Sci-Fi and fantasy is literally all they have ever seen (typically Star Wars, LotR, and some mainstream anime), and build their entire understanding of what is cool and good design on that very, VERY limited pool of knownledge.

: It's actually Famine, not Hunger. Also, I have a possible idea for what the 5th Darkin's weapon will be.
Ah well, semantics, but there is a fine difference between the two terms tho. So, what is the mysterious 5th weapon then? Lemme guess: Sona's instrument? - because every crazy dnd group needs a bard. We now got a Warrior, a Rouge, a Ranger, #4 possibly being a mage... so yeah, all we are missing is the bard.

: Seeing true Varus would be like looking into the Ark of the Covenant, I suspect.... :-) https://media.giphy.com/media/L4caiF7GTkgJa/giphy.gif
So kinda like in greek mythology where if you look at the "true" form of a god it reduces you to a pile of smoldering ashes?
: I think this theory is coincidence and long shot thinking. Riot has continuously showed us that they are straying far away from cliches - and nothing is more cliche than that trite biblical end of the world nonsense about 4 horsemen of the apocalypse. They picked a scythe for Rhaast because they didn't have a champion who wielded a scythe before. Rhaast also doesn't encompass death any more than Aatrox or Varus. The Darkin are simply bloodthirsty on the while. I can see how you think Varus encompasses pestilence, considering how his kit works. But I think that's also coincidence because his kit was based around his old lore of Varus being infected by a lingering corruption. The new Varus is just out for vengeance and blood. So yeah, I think it's coincidence and nothing more.
So we have a bunch of demonic dudes that want to bring and end to mankind with 3 of four iconic weapons present. Yepp, sure coincidence, bruh, totally. Aatrox literally thrives in the whole War-thematic, and Kayn is a freaking assassin. You know, THE ONE PROFESSION THAT KILLS PEOPLE. A soldier fights, a executioner is only the tool of the law, but an assassin is the profession closest to death. As for Varus... the medival idea of pestilence is different than what it is today. None knew bacteria and stuff, they just thought some maniac is shooting people with insivible arrows that carry a curse (something that goes back to Apollo in greek mythology). It all just fits too well.
Beastrod (NA)
: When did everyone start caring about lore so much?
They don't care, I think most of them are just hung up on the whole homosexuality thing but don't wanna be see as "that kinda person". Let's be real, the majority never gives a shit. I've ran a fanfiction and lore blog for years, together with other people who did the same. We were a small circle, completly insignificant compared to the whole mass of players. Even here on the boards for the last years you only had the same dozend faces being the prominent posters (Greenlore, Malicious, Sharjo, etc.) and that was it. It only got a bit better with the recent events, but when it comes to old lore, most people seriously don't really give a shit and only say it because it makes them stand out like hipsters ("I liked lore before it was cool"). Typical disgusting human mediocrity if you ask me.

: Nicely written post. I can see you got a lot of dislikes with only 19 views but I agree, it really does not matter. I mean I just want a VO to go with it and I'm fine. Also I like the half-pun {{sticker:sg-lulu}}
Yes obviously he needs some work done ingame, but gameplay wise he's on the very easy side of things: move blight to his passive, make a new basic skill for W, and you're set. The visuals are also set as well already, no need to tinker around with that much besides some touch-ups, so all effort can go into the VO. I expect big things here tho, three different speakers... it's not going to be easy to write good dialogue for that, when it also has to fit into the pace of the game.
: Varus lore thoughts and how people forgot how to criticize or judge.
I think there is a reason he took two bodies at once. One of them was literally dieing, and the other one might not have been able to truly "contain" the Darkin, What use is a vessel if you know it's going to break sooner or later? The Darkin are not weird body-hopping aliens that can just jump from one person to another. There must be conditions for a person to qualify as a suitable host - probably also the explanation why Aatrox is doing to Tryndramere, he's possibly trying to create himself a body he can unfold his full potential in. Varus was not exactly in the position to chose where those two fell into his prison. Taking both of them was the only ticket outa'there he's gotten in several millenia, so obviously he's going to take it. Even if it might come to bite him in the ass in the far future. Who knows, maybe as much as he tries to corrupt them, he in turn gets slowly affected by the two human souls inside him? The chaotic journey of that trio has only just begune after all...
: Irelia might be the new darkin?
Not quite. With her soul bound to a blade, she's not really a "Darkin", but more of a "Darkin Imitate". Like, the same thing, but much younger, with no clue about her potential or the thing that she is now. Irelia could be an "human imitation of a Darkin", so to speak, which would change pretty much nothing of her story, because she still got her old body to wield the posessed weapon. While this would almost change nothing with her old lore, I think in future Darkin lore, this might be extremly relevant.
