: TFT - What do y'all think?
Honestly, I'm highly dissapointed. League of Legends is probably my most played videogame, because I enjoyed all rotating gamemodes. After several thousend matches, I lost interest in Summoners Rift and ARAM, but rotating gamemodes were awesome. Ascension was probably my best experience. Now I'm waiting for half a year to play LoL again. The new gamemode seems to be a totally different game and it's probably similar to Dota Chess. I will give it a try, but I'm here to play LoL... This means there won't be another gamemode for months. That's a good example why I stopped buying RP. I'm not happy with the direction of LoL.

: Honestly, he's a shitty person, but the social outrage and trying to destroy somebody's life because of the person that they are has got to stop. So many people with their lives destroyed over things they said on Twitter. Shitty people have to have jobs too, yanno? Calling for them to be fired just because they said a bunch of ignorant crap in their free time is pretty fucked up. If he wants to live his life groveling at the feet of SJWs and the like, well he is already miserable enough, no? What's important is that Riot as a company doesn't make this exclusionary behavior standard practice.

He decided to insult the customers of his company, so he has to bear the consequences. Many companies dismiss "shitty people", because it lowers their reputation. I remember several people, who lost their job, because of "hate speech" on social media. Riot as a company seems to support this behavior. Several Twitter-messages of Riot employees were postet in other threads, who defended this behavior. They also deleted all posts on Redit.
: I think it's rather contextual. You REALLY obviously no nothing about design theory or character design going off just your first three sentences. Fat characters fit FANTASTICALLY into design. In the same way a sexual woman can be intimidating or cocky. Fat characters can be seen as malicious or full of mal-intent, or alternatively they can be seen as Motherly, Loving and Soft. Think of Ursula from Little Mermaid. https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/antagonist/images/1/16/1561_Ursula_40_detail.jpg/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/250?cb=20160706015650 Her weight contributes to her design. It shows she's greedy, selfish and full of herself. You're **INCREDIBLY** wrong by stating that Motherly types are more 'towards' muscular women. As not only design wise, but historically, Plump and Larger figures have often been associated with Nature, Fertility and of course, Motherhood. You're trying to tell me you're going to associate THIS; https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/leagueoflegends/images/0/0b/Illaoi_OriginalSkin.jpg/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/320?cb=20170616230710 With Motherhood and Caring Moreso then This? ; https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/courage/images/a/ad/Muriel_Bagge.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20110610081643 Just because one of them is fat? You're also misguided when it comes to Gragas. Gragas's character and humor is ENTIRELY based around his Alcoholism and not his weight. In ALL of his dialogue he doesn't even have ONE line where he mentions his own weight. If Gragas was 'comically' fat, there would be a joke ANYWHERE in his design, story, lore or literally anything about it. But there isn't. Creating Fat characters isn't 'glorifying' Obesity or whatever, just like putting big breasts on a battleworn survivalist isn't necessarily sexualization. You people make shit way too much about politics and your own personalized agenda's. When in the end It's just a matter of creating interesting characters, designs and stories that resonate well.
I am glad YOU know everything about character design. Other opinions are definitely wrong! Yes, people will support fat character on boards, but here is the reality: Nobody wants to play this kind of character. Did you ever play a MMORPG? All onlinegames (Black Desert Online for example) offer an insane amount of customisation. You're able to create chubby und sometimes fat girls. I met thousends of players and there was not even one, who created a chubby avatar. Yes, there are great characters like Ursula, who has an amazing design. However, you cherry picked a nostalgic Disney villain, who got a whole movie to develop her character. Let's keep it more realistic: ThePikol posted a high quality artwork of a storm themed champion. Janna has a very similar design and theme. Feel free to disagree, but I prefer Janna.
: The only comparable company I've found is Blizzard. Which makes sense because in my experience, most people I've met refer to Riot as Blizzard 2/Blizzard Jr. due to copying most of the company culture and practices.
Please don't compare Riot and Blizzard. I used Riots support several times and they always acted kind like that. Blizzard banned my Battlenet-Account for Goldselling in World-of-Warcraft (I don't own even own WoW). I created a new account and ask player support to get unbanned, because I don't own WoW and it has to be a mistake. I only bought Starcraft and I am forced to have a Battlenet account to play SIngleplayer. I received an instruction to reset my password in WoW and my ticket was closed. I reopened it and said "I don't own WoW, please read my ticket". The next supporter banned my account, because it's not allowed to have multiple accounts.

That's right. She was underpowered and now she is in a good spot. So, why not doing the same with Poppy?
: Let's talk Poppy, let's talk Riot balance
Don't worry. Poppy is getting 5 movement speed back. Carefull balance team, you don't want to overbuff her! A very good post by the way. Don't forget to mention Lux, who got a ton of buffs.

: EDIT: grammar Okay, so we got together with game designers, player behavior folks, and player support agents to take a hard look at this player, the penalties, and the support tickets associated with it. It's clear this wacky Smite, Support Singed plays to win. It’s also clear the player struggles to effectively communicate intentions and strategy to teammates. In this case, unwieldy communication and the wacky Smite, Support Singed pick are tightly linked. So let’s pick them apart some. Innovative and unconventional approaches to League keep the game fresh, and finding new ways to win motivates a ton of players. We 100% support the opportunity to innovate with surprising picks and strategies in League. The only real condition we place on that right to experimentation is that you play to win. However, sometimes unconventional approaches to the game have costs that outweigh benefits. This player might have a respectable(-ish) winrate on Support Singed with Smite and no Sightstone, but the pick and build also nets them a frankly enormous number of reports and probably gives their ADC high blood pressure. That leaves us with two tricky questions: Q: If intentions are clearly aimed at victory, is there an outer boundary for too unconventional a pick/build/strategy? A: No. This is where we break from the Support ticket linked in the original reddit discussion. Real talk, this player is far from the only support in Gold V to skip out on a Sightstone. No one should ever get banned for skipping Sightstone. On the other hand, asking an ADC to lane alone while their support farms the enemy jungle truly pushes that teammate out of their comfort zone and that should mean something. We can all sympathize with the lonely Miss Fortune facing down Lucian and Alistar at her own turret, and it makes sense to us when they report this Singed player. Q: Do unconventional picks/strategies increase the burden of communications for the player and their teammates? Y: Yes. If you're gonna throw a curveball at teammates, you also need to communicate your intentions to teammates. You shouldn’t just expect everyone to "get it", so tell them what's up. To be clear, this player does attempt to communicate intent and strategy, but a good chunk of teammates across hundreds of games just don’t want to sign up for the plan. That lack of agreement on the new plan makes for a pretty chaotic game and leads to a huge share of this player’s reports. If a teammate in champ select says, “pls no, this is game 5 of promos”, maybe stick with something conventional and skip tilting your teammates off the face of the earth. In short, argue for your idea, but stay ready to be flexible. In the same vein, teammates should be willing give unconventional picks/strategies a fair shot. They could surprise your opponents more than they surprise you. We need to leave plenty of space for experimentation in League (Hi Support MF), even if it sometimes leaves us in less than perfectly comfy games. If you're about to play stunbot Twisted Fate tank support with Talisman, Righteous Glory, and Protobelt, let your team know the special kind of hell you're aiming to create for your enemies, and how they should adjust their expectations and approach to the game. If, instead of that, you wholly fail to communicate, or completely disrupt game after game, it makes sense that you’d rack up a ton of reports, net manual reviews and even potential penalties from Player Support. The net result is that players, if playing to win, have a fundamental right to experiment in League. It’s good for the game. At the same time, common sense and good sportsmanship say that experimenting players need to clearly communicate intent and win conditions to their teammates. In this Singed player’s case, the two-week ban’s already expired. For what it’s worth, we believe the penalty was warranted because in literally hundreds of games the player inflicted a huge amount of disruption on players who didn’t agree to their chemistry experiments. On the other hand, the player’s communication issues fall well short of permaban territory, and in retrospect the threat of a perma in the Player Support response was a bit much. We also see marked improvement in their efforts communicate with teammates in more recent games. It’s worth mentioning that cases like these are handled by humans and any player in a (pretty dang rare) situation like this can request further detail and a full review from Player Support. Still, with intent to win confirmed, gameplay experimentation and innovation is something we stand behind even if it ruffles feathers. After all, conventional picks lose half their games too. We think this player could still do a much better job of communicating with teammates, but we also believe players should be more tolerant of different approaches to the game. The line here is the player repeatedly showing no flexibility in the face of resistance to their strategies, and consistently forcing teammates into a wildly different bot lane experience hundreds of times.

League of Legends is famous for his toxic community. Have you ever tried to explain an unusual tactic in pre-chat? You already get flamed for offmeta picks (a good example would be Morgana/Annie support before it became popular). Just read this topic. Most people don't even understand your real intentions and think you banned Singed for "trolling". Every offmeta pick is supposed to be "trolling". You don't have to answer this question, but do you really think it's possible to communicate with this kind of teammates? What about people like me, who aren't native English speakers and can't communicate as well as other people? Your second main argument is his summoner spell "Smite". Summoner spells are available for everyone. Think about a support Blitzcrank, who uses Smite to land his skillshot. I am very dissapointed because of your statement. You encourage people to report "trolling".

You spammed "easy". So don't play Mr. Nice Guy here. You clearly did it to insult your enemys.

: so youre saying i deserve a 2 week ban for saying easy. this is the point im trying to make. but thanks for your reply it was clearly very logical and took you alot of time and effort to explain any kind of point you thought you was making.
You don't deserve a 2 week ban. You deserve a full ban, because you are spamming "easy" AND you are still thinking it's okay. So the punishment wasn't enough. You are playing the nice guy here, but Laserowl clearly showed you the reason for your ban. If you don't understand that, it's your own problem.
