: Teemo changes temporarily on PBE for early feedback
Please stop with dumb camouflage. It's a bad mechanics that's not fun to use. The reason i play Teemo is that i can go camo in bush and enemy will lose sight of me, being unable to damage me unless he has a reveal or will be lucky with his aoe. Also i play him to set up the trap and wait there before enemy will walk pass. Sometimes it's the wrong type of enemy of they grouped, so i have to stay in stealth and let them walk right past me. Now it's impossible because they will spot me regardless of detection items. I don't care that i am able to move. If i will want that - i will just play Twitch. It feels like you just want to remove one of the few last stealthes in game and found a reason to justify it. If you want to really change him in a good way - give him real blind (dark screen), like Queen has, but without minimal range (so even melee champs won't see anything but themselves).

He can't go full damage on lvl4 or 6, he barely has money to afford boots. Yet he simply jumps on people and instantly kills them, when in normal game he would probably remove around 50% of hp in best case scenario.

Most of those numbers would be people like me who just turn off the sound and run translation in closed tab while they play somethinng else just to get the rewards.

: What's so great about disliking Flash recently? The only problem Flash has isn't that most players pick it, the problem with Flash is that the entire game is balanced with Flash in mind. If you change Flash just because god forbid an immobile champion getting a way to deal with a hairy situation every so often you imbalance the entire game even further.
Since even the most mobile creeps still picking flash - it's just as crucial for them as for immobile champs. The problem is that there is no better option... Unless you are Shaco.
: 1. Because it's not unique to a champion, as in everyone (with the exception of new accounts) can take it. On the contrary, you don't have to take it if you don't want to. Using Dark Harvest as an example, only certain champions could make it work. Supports shouldnt take it (they can, but it isnt ideal) and most tanks shouldnt either. Assassins still performed better with Electrocute in my opinion. 2. It doesn't do damage. It is only used as an engage or an escape or to chase down an enemy. Again, using Dark Harvest, everyone took is because it was overpowered, as in the damage was ridiculous 3. Nothing can change it except for {{item:3158}} and the Cosmic Insight rune (unlike how Dark Harvest gets more damage with no cap to my knowledge) 4. Not taking Flash doesn't necessarily mean that you will "be behind." You then have the option to take another Summoner spell, such as Ignite or Teleport or Exhaust. This gives you an advantage in place of your disadvantage. 5. Compared to items, runes, etc. there are not very many options when picking Summoner Spells. One is bound to be picked more over the others. In this case, Flash
I like dark harvest exacly for this reason - not everyone can benefit from it, so it's ballanced. Meanwhile, everyone can benefit from flash, it's jack of all trades.
: The thing is that flash has been mandatory since seasons and the whole game with all it's champions have been balanced around everyone taking it. And it's fine like that imo, I like it when everyone has flash. We don't need to force variety on everything.
> We don't need to force variety on everything. Your words may trigger one group of internet users... beware. Jokes aside, having a moba where everyone does one thing because it's better than rest of the options does not sound like a moba at all. This games are about variety.

: League is still a strategy game, it's just nobody wants to use strategy
When i play against Zed, he kills me regardless of jungler or anything else. Or, if he is really terrible Zed and can't win a lane, he simply goes somewhere else, gets bunch of kills, and then he kills me. And everyone else. And escapes. Blink, blink. blink, in less than second, impossible to react, impossible to chase. Somehow if i pick Pantheon, for example, to kill someone i must put mysfelf in danger, spent some time (allowing enemies to make a counter play), and doom myself at becoming totaly useles in late in exchange to good early killing potential. And i can't understand why Zed can do the same, but easier, faster, and with instant escape, while also being a beast in late. All new champs, especailly - almost all of the ninjas feel completly unfair compared to old designs. And with how many champs in league are currently exist for one singular purpose - oneshot you without giving any time to retaliate, i would say - no, it's not so much about strategy, as it about pressing buttons really fast.
: Sadly, unlikely. I'll ping the judges again but it is holiday time so....y'know. People probably AFK.
Wow, holidays start so long before actual new year? Probably a real lot of people sent their works, since it takes so long to go over them all. I am curious, will we get to see them all after the results, or only winners will be published?
: Threatening to report others, as far as I've seen, does count as a violation of the Summoner's Code. The only thing telling someone you'll report them is meant to do is to harass and coerce them to behave in a specific way. If one is going to report someone, it's best to just report them and not say anything about it. No "I'm gonna report you", no "can we please report x" - 'cause saying you'll report them doesn't do anything.
I don't think so. In real life you would not call the police if there is a chance that criminal would go away and stop doing what he doing if you threat him with calling the police. It's just a warning - "you are doing reportable thing, and you will get your report if you won't stop". I didn't said that i was going to report him anyway, only if he keeps on inting.
: Sigh the other day I was held hostage by a 4man. I wanted neeko support so I hovered. They said pick a real support and banned her. So I hover annie. “Annie is not a support, we said a real support” I still hover annie anyways. “If you don’t pick a real support we’re all going support” enemy team has first pick. Then my mid and adc lock in bard and janna... my jungle hovers lulu and my top hovers tahm. They all took support so I went jinx for damage. They would not stop flaming in all chat and the lulu would just walk up and ult janna on cd, the bard would constantly ult me so I would die and say something like “man if only you were support” “a support wouldn’t have died there” and after the game I reported them all and never got report feedback. It was normals. I don’t understand why people have to be so toxic... I never said a word for the entire game... well nothing after telling the enemy team the situation at the very start while my team was flaming.
Yeah, from time to time i encounter people who banning your picks for no good reason, but at least they aren't behaving like you described...

: Well Urf can never be balanced , everyone knowns that , there are those champions who are really broken there
It's not about the picks or events. It's about one team certainly winning the game (and almost any event) despite what they picking.
: Well it's a mode for stomping and short matches anyway , that's something you should have already known before playing It's all about those Events , win them and the winning team gets a huge advantage , You still have hope for second event if you lose the first one , but losing first and second event means it's a gg and the winning team will stomp , you can still win if enemy team doesn't end , by attacking that moving nexus I actually had losing matches where we completely got stomped but still won because we focused the Nexus
Events have nothing to do with it. In one of last games first event was an URF. We lost without taking a single opponent out of the game, all of them remained on the arena. Outcome is predicted before game even starts, one team is very often 100% weaker than another.

: "stop talking, you're 0/5"
I like a lot more when i am dying to counter pick at top who winning first few fights with the helf of his jungler, and then, after having few level advantage simply diving me and surviving with less than 100hp each time, but snowballing in items more and more and not letting me farm, while my jungler ignores all requests for help, because enemy support feeding him with free kills and he cares only about getting more of them. When both towers are down and enemy already hitting inhib he finally notices my lane, comes, dies 1v1 against ultra fed and farmed opponent, flames me for feeding him, and when i ask why he never cared about any requests for help even when he was farming nearby camps, says "you 0\5, stop talking".

Thank you. Sadly, i probably somehow missed an announcment for this...

: Is already gone? Man that's so unlucky, when the Blue Essence shop comes in you have a lot of chromas availeable to buy with BE instead of RP. But since the Christmas even already started the shop is gone.
And how much be one chroma usually costs?

: Imo Warriors Kingdoms and Demon Vi are better than Project so I would go with Bullet Angel Kai'Sa that you can even buy for Blue Essence the chromas now.
What do you mean buy from BE? I don't see the option.

: Some thoughts on more dated female champions, from a girl
Hm... if i was a girl, i would want to look like Nida. Or Zoe. Or Kata. I would definetly dress like Kata! What's wrong if cute or sexual look is a part of your personality?
: I want more badass women and less loli's and sexual characters tbh Like, {{champion:89}} is a badass but randomly has heels on. It's just annoying sometimes even if it's just small things like that. I don't really care one way or another, I just prefer darker/stronger characters than League gives me usually. Just wish Riot would let more female characters be rough like {{champion:420}} Then again I like ugly/evil characters and wish there were more of them {{champion:6}} {{champion:14}} {{champion:223}}{{champion:9}}
: It's amazing how different this game used to be in S3
I am looking at old movies and cry. Can you imagine akali and eve diving cait and she lives? https://youtu.be/_p50Ezg5Yco?t=582 Ezreal fights at melee range with Nasus instead of poking from afar? Or maybe tank kass, who can survive 1v4 fight and get away?) https://youtu.be/NvRdkeGRTM4?t=122
: The grading system was a pretty big failure and riot has long since realized it isn't worth the time or effort. Just ignore the grades, they are meaningless.
I wish i could, but it's the only way to get crates apart from events... so all key fragments received for honours are useless.
: https://champion.gg/champion/Vi/Jungle?league= Average Vi Damage Dealt (to Champions): 15k Average Vi Damage Taken: 25.1k Average Vi Gold Earned: 11.3k Average Vi KDA: 7/6/7 Average Vi Minions Killed: 34 Your Vi Damage Dealt (to Champions): 7.5k Your Vi Damage Taken: 26.7k Your Vi Gold Earned: 10.1k Your Vi KDA: 6/7/7 Your Vi Minions Killed: 11 You're Average or Below in every category that site tracks, with the exception of Damage Taken due to dying an extra time. Why should Average or Below performance get an S? There's more to the Jungle role than winning the neutral objectives. ---- In contrast, Leona had more kills, fewer deaths, more assists, and earned more gold than average. They were much closer to average in Minions Killed than you, they were roughly on-par for damage dealt to champions, and while they only tanked 15k instead of the 20k average they died 4 less times, which would make up the difference.
But why exacly i am compared to average stats? If game ends fast, there is no way you will deal 15k damage as a burster jungler.
: I'm still stuck on your title here. Send help.
{{summoner:6}} {{champion:16}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:43}} {{champion:117}} {{summoner:51}}
: Why are you comparing a Jungler to a Support? Why are you comparing different champions? The ranks are based on performance by your Champion in your Role. That Leona Support was being compared to all other Leona Supports, not to you. If you're not getting S ranks then you're not playing top tier.
If you read more carefully, you would notice that i did everything that was required from my role as a jungler, while support failed (probably intentionnaly) to do what was required from her to get better stats.

: Riot's philosophy finally turned the game into dogshit after so much years
As an old player who was here since the beginning, current tank situation makes me want to cry for them. Only fed Cho still somehow holds his position, but can go down in 5 seconds if properly focused... Before focusing tank was a joke among players and something only newbs would do, now it's a valid strategy because of how fast you go down. You don't tank anymore, you just initiate and hope that your team will follow or you will go down in few seconds. Deffencive items are even worse, after getting back to the league it took some time to realize that if i play anyone who is not a "tank" and i pick deffencive item, while my oponent picks offencive one - he will ALWAYS win. Deffence is simply inferior to damage, having ad or ap is much better than having armor or mres, people rarely take % penetration items now because everyone dies in seconds anyway... They even made jungle items to force people into jungling with smite. No freedom at all, you either play as they want to, or be in huge disadvatnage...
: The reason Dark Harvest is actually too busted. And it's not the damage.
How much fed you need to be to just bring someone to half health with few teemo shot or one panth's spear? If they keep their hp high, you will never proc dark harvest.
: there is a major difference between a person finding a new way to play a champ that is fun, balanced, and interactive. and riot drastically overbuffing a champ and forcing them into a lane no one can deal with. for example. {{champion:112}} top isn't bad because it "victor top" its BAD because no one has any way to deal with it...
What? For my Teemo any Victor on top are just a food. I like when people pick them. And just going into another lane - isn't a "uniqe way to play". Unique way to play in the was was a pusher TF who uses zhonyas to escape, Ap counterjungling Shaco with stacked boxes, or ward removing Nidalee. And that kind of things getting instantly removed by Riot once people start using them. I feel like pushing Sion will eventually face the same fate - they already nerfing demolish.

Like i said, some skins, like pool party are nice. I jut don't play that characters. Others, like skins on Kaisa, Corki, Twith i would trade on any other skin for same character.
: No, I'm saying we have no way of knowing how profitable dota 2 is or isn't since Valve is not a public company and makes no statements about their profits in any way shape or form, but that Dota2 is only a small part of Valve's profits, so even if it is only marginally profitable, it is unlikely to effect Valve's bottom line much. Additionally, there are a few other pieces of information we can use to help evaluate the difference between Dota2 and LoL in terms of 'burden of profit': 1) A lot of valve's infrastructure is shared between Steam/CS/etc. and DotA2, meaning there is less of a burden on DotA2 itself to pay for itself, whereas Riot's servers are exclusively used for LoL. 2) Valve does not hire customer service professionals, and their support tickets are handled on a voluntary unpaid basis... whereas Riot has a full CS team. 3) As far as I'm aware, Valve just does 'prisoner's island' and is happy with that, whereas Riot does a lot of research and development to try to build Player Behaviour systems. Which means Riot has to pay for Behavioural Psychologists and specialists in human psych to help build systems. The above 3, combined with what I said initially, means that Riot is a lot more dependent upon LoL being significantly profitable than Valve is on DotA being the same. If DotA makes a 5% profit margin, that's probably sufficient because they have so many other lines to pull profit from... whereas if LoL made a 5% profit margin, they'd probably be struggling as an organization... just to pull numbers out of my ass.
> Valve does not hire customer service professionals, and their support tickets are handled on a voluntary unpaid basis... Never heared of such thing. Their support members have acsess to private info and help restore accounts, etc, how can they be volounteers? Other things you said i kinda understand (but not sure if having entire division of psychologist even worth it), but if things really that tight, then why they mission obvious sourses of income, like, for example, selling custom announcers - they spent effort to record them and then just throw away after the effort, when in dota announcers like those making lots of money. It feels like they just earn too much and don't bother about making additional profits, throwing good potential sourse of income away. There is other things like absense of custom taunts\poses, lack of chromas for every skin (since it's just a recolour it's a job for the day), wasting money on expencive cinematics, and not investing money in anything else, putting all stakes on one game?
