: Why can you go below 0 lp
You have a threshold of +100 LP (Promos) -100 LP (Demotion). This was hidden before but if you actually did the math -100 LP is a demotion unless you're shielded.

: Ezreal giving vocal warnings when certain champions are near
It’s not a bug he’s been doing this for some while now as it suppose to fit in with his explorer kind of lore. As far as I can remember he’s been doing this as far back as S6 to my recollection.

: the "League is dying" argument
League had plateaued awhile ago even if more people are playing the question remains how often are they playing? This could just be old players playing every now and then A better stat to look at would be monthly players. I use to play this game almost daily now I barely play monthly. Not to also mention Riot did state people were more likely to stop playing after URF is gone. Their revenue has dropped. Though this could be cause of all the free things they give out now. I personally have noticed more increased surveys asking about other games and such for comparative reasons.
: Tank meta was the "tank" 1-shotting squishies because Sunfire and Iceborn did so much damage. If you recall some "other tank meta" then please inform me. I really don't think half the people that talk about the "tank meta" even played during that time.
Show me a video of a ice born+ sun fire tank one shotting a squishy and I’ll agree Oh wait.. you can’t

: Request , another Semi Locked Camera
I pretty much had to learn how to play with a locked and unlocked camera for the most part because of this I use to try semi-locked but the fact it didn’t reset back to off-set was so frustrating and confusing cause you’d lose sight of your champion so quick.

: sterak's is melee only because ranged champs abused it worse
LMAO he literally contradicted himself
: Hot take: "high damage" is just an excuse for poor macro and bad play.
High damage has been attributed by low item cost, earlier power spikes because of minion gold, lower base armor/MR, runes that output damage. Change my mind.

: 2019 and Sheen is still bugged on Graves.
Don’t need a 3k health with empower right click to plague the game. There’s a reason why Riot has left it, he’s already frustrating enough.
IAmTheLego (EUNE)
: Why are Asian servers' rules very different than ours?
It’s not different, it’s the same rules it’s just that it’s poorly enforced that’s why it runs rampant on those servers. It’s like certain laws in certain countries, they may share the same laws as other countries but some are poorly enforced in some countries. On a side note stop trying to justify this behaviour, it’s not accepted anywhere.
: [Gameplay] Yasuo not disabled during ultimate while triggering Sleepy Trouble Bubble
I’m pretty sure J4 and Ezreal interact the same way. Heck even Tristana can buffer this too.

: You're right, and I should have actually responded to one of the other Riven-related threads a few days ago. Good call.
Kanzler (NA)
: I never said they didn't. Im asking if they should do so again. Also again, why are you so intent on nerfing the champion when there may be an underlying cause elsewhere? Wouldn't you rather a proper investigation of the discrepancy resulting in a correct decision? Otherwise it just sounds like you want to play wack-a-mole with the nerf bat, then complain when the balance team sucks.
There’s no “underlying” cause other than the fact she’s a popular champion here in conjunction with Conqueror and SoJ. Same concept as low elo vs high elo, low elo will always play less mechanically intense champions vs high elo that plays what is good on said patch and this can be said by region, when you certain play rates of champions they differ by region because of simply personal interest. Then you have pro play vs ranked, same concept. If you look at China Master Yi has always been a popular pick because of how easily he gets ahead and how easily he can boost games. However she’s amassed a high ban rate and win rate across most regions and this is the reasoning for the complaints.
Kanzler (NA)
: Is this not simply a test on playing against riven? Besides, is it really correct to nerf/buff because of one region instead of a trend across all regions? Why are you against more investigation as to why riven is too strong in only 1 region?
Like I mentioned before there are a lot of one tricks in NA compared to other regions. It’s like economics, there is demand if you supply, so why make supply for equality if one sector is demanding more? Also Riot has indeed nerf other champions in the past for being too strong in one region.
Kanzler (NA)
: People are butthurt because they think it's some conspiracy against the west. In reality, it's an interesting piece of data since it widely differs by region. If you are taking a test and 1 of 5 people think it is too hard, would you immediately think there was a problem with the test and drmand changes without additional investigation? It's the same with balance. Is the champion really too strong or does the meta, playstyle, strengths/weaknesses in one region cause the champion to appear too strong?
That's a horrible analogy because a test is designed to test an individual about their intellectual intelligence on the said topic. Raw data on the other hand is facts, whether you believe it on or not. However you're missing the main point here which is in the past certain champions have been nerfed because of certain regions then NA should be no acception.
Kanzler (NA)
: Instead of getting butthurt, maybe you guys should show curiosity as to why there is such a different perception across regions. Maybe she is a noob stomper and us westerners are all noobs {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
How is this butthurt? It's been stated by even pro players that there is significantly more one tricks in NA than there is in Korea or other regions this is why she's being picked a lot. But if Twisted Fate is going to receive a nerf because of his popularity back in S5 Korea Riven should be no exception.

Even Riot mentioned some of these champions are a failure such as LB and Vlad. They are the most complained about because they are the most played and people get front row seats to their particular bullshit. If Mundo were to become meta tomorrow, there would be people who say he is the most poorly designed or least enjoyable champion to play against which we have seen happen multiple times in the past. Karthus went from being an absolute joke to suddenly being cancer. Renekton way back in the day was seen as a troll pick then other champions around him got nerfed and suddenly he is the cancer top lander. Wouldn’t be surprised if we saw the same thing happen to Olaf soon with his pro play he is getting.
Except most of the champions you’ve named have clear counters. Mundo and grevious sounds. Karthus with a bunch of ways to dodge his ult. Renekton susceptibility to poke. These champions are frustrating when they’re strong because they leave you with minimal counter play that even a Rioter themselves said they are poorly designed. Ofc people will always complain about whatever champion is on top the play list but that doesn’t mean they lack counter play, but in this case all these champion lack very minimal and have been nerfed quite a lot.

Moody P (NA)
: Enchanters are neglected more than anyone else
“Low interaction and counter play” You do realize anything that gets on top of you just automatically one shots you right? There’s a reason they have low base health and resistances in trade off for their ability to peel. You pick hard engage champions like Alistar or Hecarim your life is pretty much doomed because you’re going to get one shot every time a single combo touches you. Positioning is of the up most importance when playing an enchanter and they’re rewarded for it. Also in regards to interaction, Nami is poke, Soraka players max E or 3 points, Janna players max W or 3 Points, Lulu players can max Q or 3 points, Karma players max Q. So this idea that enchanters are low interaction is also false. The only thing you can make a case for is Soraka E range but that’s about it.
Kai Guy (NA)
: In Elo and MMR systems, they are statistical endeavors. Regardless of the overall level of skill of the average player base because its representative of the majority it will still be the same Tiers. There is some wiggle room due to soft resets and impact of inactive accounts but on the whole its not that dramatic.
Yes it is because this is why champions like Leona, Jinx, Annie, Darius etc will always be low elo favourites because they’re simple to play and don’t require much mechanics. You pick Zed is lower elo you most odds have prolific mechanics that will allow you to climb.
: The average league player is bad at this game so you might already have your answer
: Will Matchmaking ever find true balance?
Saying “we lost cause of matchmaking” is just a general broad statement, that’s like saying “we lost cause we played poorly” either you have some supportive evidence towards the claim or not.

: Why was Zed buffed again?
Because the removed the bonus AD on his ultimate for any takedowns he got. It was a justified nerf with justified buffs.
: Thresh was OP for months after Riot needlessly buffed his hook cooldown twice right before Worlds. It took until this very patch for him to receive a nerf, and they didn't even revert the buffs. They hit somewhere else like they're afraid to admit the buffs were unnecessary.
Thresh is still broken tier until they revert that disgusting E buff, but Riot won’t as they think those pathetic Q nerfs where were his power was.

Kalikain (NA)
: The issue is, its a higher win rate when its only been built like 1400-10000 times. Thats a crazy low number of games. When you see low % of pick rates, we are talking about shyvana one tricks and mains. When you only use stats from people who know how to play her, the stats are going to be crazy boosted. For example. A-Sol was sitting at the highest win rate, and is usually always in the top 5 for win rates, but the # of people who play him is like 1/1000th of those who play veigar mid. So we only have the best people playing A-Sol, who are going to have higher win rates because they are already good, and we cant get a good reading because so few bad players, play him. So why nerf something that isn't really an issue? Its like nerfing Udyr when only trick2g is good with him at a 70% win rate, where everyone else is 45-49% win rates.
At this point it doesn’t matter what the sample size is, I’ve personally been seeing an increased trend in this and almost every single game against a Shyvana I’ve played I went against an AP Shyvana. It’s uninteresting, boring, bland and unfun. A single E hits me for 900 damage and then I have to go back to base or if she has a Rylais and the secondary damage pops that’s literally a 2 shot it’s ridiculous. It WILL an increased trend and I and guarantee you it. Better to stop this nonsense now before Shyvana becomes a perma ban soon. Not even low popularity champions break 56%.

: Do you think it is NOT bad sportsmanship to recruit a team of Ringers to beat up on "average" players at a game? I don't think "hustling" someone is CHEATING, but it is "bad sportsmanship" IMO. Sportsmanship is defined by exhibiting "fair play" and respect to your opponent. If you're playing against people you KNOW to be inferior to yourself, I don't see how that is EITHER "fair" or showing "respect" to your opponents.
Except that doesn't happen in solo queue, at best duo.
