The tech industry skews younger so lest assume most Riot employees, male or female, are between 25 and 40. Further, lets assume most game developers and programs lead a sedentary lifestyle - a safe assumption in my experience. Under these assumptions Riots female employee will require 1800 kilocalories per day while their male employees will require 2400 kilocalories per day. This has our male employees requiring 600 kilocalories more per day or 219,000 more kilocalories each year. At the national average of 0.35 cents per kilocalorie this comes out to $766.50 every year just to maintain baseline metabolic function. Would you accept the assertion that men should be payed more than women on the grounds that simply staying alive costs them more? My real point in that reductionist cherry picking is ... unconvincing at best. Yes, women face some costs that men do not but men likewise face costs that women do not and broadly speaking attempting to use either to justify inequality is ultimately arguing in favor of discrimination.

Which sedentary lifestyle requires 2400 calorie a day? American lifestyle? I went from 50 kgs of bodyweight to 75 kgs of mostly muscle mass by eating 2500 calories each day. Stop misleading people. Most people can do more than fine with under 2000 calories.
: Riot under investigation?
I hate feminism. Couldn't give a shit about it. But people who are going to close their eyes and ignore this are worse than those idiots who try to push their agenda in the name of a political movement. Women are legit being harassed at Riot. They've tried to call Riot out multiple times in the past, and I have no doubt that Riot is a sexist company. As much as I hate attaching myself to political movements such as feminism I hate sexism even more. Riot deserves to have a through investigation shoved up it's ass. They've treated their women life trash and it's time they own up to their bullshit. I can't believe few people in the comment section are trying to ignore this.
: Tahm Kench still not nerfed after 3 patches of him being broken in toplane
Reduce his W range, increase its cooldown, and make his swallow more telegraphed. Give it a delay of you have to. On top of that reduce his shield ratio to half as much grey health education gets translated. There's no reason a juggernaut should behave like a ranged champ and be able to 100-0 you under your own turret while shielding it's shots throughout.

: "hey we have this city-state of outright good vs. the nation of outright evil. But what if Noxus was alright, except like 2 bad baddies, and we made Demacia morally grey/questionable?" "Okay lets make every demacian as hypocritical and malicious as possible! Thats brilliant writing!!!" Do yourself a favor and just don't read Riot's lore post-2015. Its actually worse than the game balance state
Swain isn't even that much of a baddie, and more of a political leader with dirty hands. A country gotta conquer to expand its bounds. I don't see why people call current Noxus out for being evil.
: is it affecting ur gameplay? no so stop complaining or don't buy the skin
Ignore those downvoters. The boards isn't a place to discuss gameplay unless you're flaming Riot.

Not to mention how he just as easily slips away with his shadows, essentially giving him a free dash. Talon is in the same boat, except he doesn't make me want to rush hourglass every single time I play an AP assassin against him. He's far more manageable in the laning phase and his attacks are still way more predictable and avoidable than Zed's which makes it far easier to punish him for his mistakes.

: OPINION: Junglers and Laners fight a lot because they don’t understand each others’s perspectives.
All I care about is my jungler not trying constant invades while playing a weak early game champ such as Master Yi or Jax, and actually reading my pings on when to not gank. Sadly, over most of my matches this season I've only been getting junglers who don't think twice before tower diving the laner who may be two levels above them and those who try brain-dead invades to no point. This wasn't the case last season where I had junglers who understood risk, and no it isn't just my team which gets such junglers. In instances where the opponent team gets one is pretty much a free win. To add to that these junglers often end up feeding the laners and any attempts to tell them to play clearly these days results in toxicity. I used to play jungle and can still play jungle better than most other players under gold. The junglers I usually come across in gold and below and straight up incompetent and usually never try to improve their macro play and instead seem hell bent on incessant dueling with no regards for how much they feed their opponents. I will occasionally come across a jungler who knows his shit. But that's a rare scenario. Most junglers these days just don't know what the role is about.

: Turrets are useless
They should just increase the reaction speed of turrets. At the moment they take forever to switch targets and it's a joke how easily one can weave in attacks between turret shots.

Oh you got downvoted by 14 year olds. No idea why. Maybe the boards isn't the place for people who take their life seriously.
: Who else is excited to play Leagues Auto Chess?
Couldn't care less. If they are copying Dota I wish they'd copied their voice chat function or maybe learnt how to balance the game from em instead.
: DUNK MASTER VI
Is it weird that I first read the title as "drunk master Yi"?
: My life as a Sona Top and the reports I have received
You do hard feed as a Sona top and pretty much every match were you played Sona top had you going with negative KDA. You still have a negative k/d and have dropped from gold III to gold IV in two days. That's while building her AP. You literal ruin games for people.
: Akali's Q slows bro and its pretty heavy on top of her getting a massive speed boost. Frankly i dont think all of them should be removed but the strength needs to be lowered and Cooldown massively increased. (mages and adcs need longer cooldowns and less damage and less powerful CC at the same time) Leblanc has a root not a stun same thing for melee champions in most cases. Rengar Root. Ekko has the longest stun in the game as an assassin And its massive. ANd gives him a massive shield at the same time Like wtf
Well Ekko is a skirmisher but I agree with everything else you've said.
: assassins need weaker slows not more assassins with slows
It's either that or don't give them a slow in the first place. Every assassin other than Katarina and Akali have tools to hold people in place despite doing immense burst damage anyway. Talon's slow, LeBlanc's stun, Shaco's fear, and Rengar's slow/stun, and Evelynn'scharm. Katarina is heavily reliant on gunblade which enables her to land more of her ultimate, if not just for the damage and has a far more difficult time landing her abilities when compared to any other assassin. She has the most options to be counter played.
: Assassins don't have CC. Their job is to catch the opponent out by repositioning themselves, not by landing a CC. You want to catch with CC and still do burst damage then learn a burst mage champion.
Assassins already gave cc. How do you explain Talon's slow, LeBlanc's stun, Shaco's fear, and Rengar's slow/stun, and Evelynn's charm? Most assassins have cc. All of them have tools to hold the opponent in place despite doing heavy burst damage nonetheless.
: ***
No offense but I've literally read your posts on the other threads. And it doesn't matter whether you have other accounts. You can't possibly have such a score. I on the other hand don't play EuW due to the 180+ ping. I live in Asia but regardless of that, your statistics cannot be this bad unless you're intentionally feeding. Please refrain from commenting here unless you can provide a reason to back up your opinion.

: >I don't see why Katarina should be left in a state where her burst damage doesn't nearly complete with that of other assassins and is still expected to be able to keep up with assassinating the highly mobile picks in this meta. Katarina has one of the best kinds of mobility spells in the game (blinks) and her ultimate is one of the most devastating in the entire game if she manages to land a good one. Kat could definitely use a small nudge in the right direction but I really don't think adding any form of CC is a good idea.
She certainly does not. In an era where even your adcs get free dashes she cannot even dash to wards. She has literally no escape other than to rely on an incoming minion wave when in a side lane trying to pick someone off and her ultimate is downright dogshit in that it can be walked away from. When was the last time you walked away from Zed, Talon, or Fizz's ult?

: Katarinas new skin got announced so i hard sweat my next game.
Where do you see what the new skin looks like? I sure hope this isn't one like that desert or Christmas skin tho. Those outright suck and look completely outdated. Edit : Nevermind, found it. https://www.riftherald.com/lol-skins/2019/4/30/18524149/battle-academia-yuumi-ezreal-lux-katarina-jayce-graves-skins-lol Katarina's splash art looks like like I'd want it to.
: Yes, and you are Bronze 3 with 43% winrate not because of your teammates as you try to defend on this thread, it's caused by your in game skill. Hey there's nothing wrong with being low elo, but dont blame others for that. Talking about the Jng part, yeah, the nerfs were needed, now J4 RekSai are being nerfed too which is great since they are some of the most powerful junglers, and Scuttle Crab is being nerfed too. Nice.
You're a funny one on an unranked account giving me advice on ranked. And an ADC main giving me advice on jungle. I think you should stick to your field of expertise and not comment on random posts.
: Bro, you're in Bronze 3. If you're complaining that the match maker is fluctuating too much then I'm here to tell you, it really doesn't matter at this elo. Master players getting placed into Diamond games is not the same as Iron 4 players getting placed in Bronze 3 games. Low elo players really need to stop making these dumb ass "bad match making" threads. This is a high elo complaint that doesn't apply below Platinum.
Silver IV with 130 wins and 141 losses. Someone once told me that the only difference between a Bronze I player and a Silver IV player was that the silver had more attitude but here I see you speak of Platinum like you belong there.
: Just got a Yasuo who went 1-7 and swapped lanes with our top and continued to feed. There's nothing we can do because Riot thinks we're on equal levels with people like this.
Legit had my bot lane hard feed over my last 4-5 games. Like going 2/13, 2/15. I do not even care at this point.
: Nah, it's not your teammates, it's your skill
Lmao you're that ADC main who believes the jungle nerfs were justified. Don't even bother commenting on my posts.

Considering it's Riot don't count on the to nerf what's broken. Don't even get your hopes up until the nerfs actually take action.

: NOT A SINGLE JUNGLER WITH A POSITIVE WIN RATE VS UDYR PLAT+
Really, I thought at least Warwick would be able to go toe to toe against him due to how easily he can be everywhere on the map and considering he's probably the strongest 1v1 early game duelist alongside Udyr. Bummer.
