That's not ok. He said that Daniel was harrased and that we are "a hate mob" WTF? BECAUSE WE WANTED ACTUALLY EQUAL RIGHTS? Holy sh** what's wrong with the media? Daniel is the one who harrased and made sexist comments against men then he is said to be for equal rights? WTF? He told the male community to kill themselves ffs. Well at least he got fired. Finaly Riot did the good thing by firing him. Going from one extreme to another is never good. Both extremes are bad. Daniel is in the wrong, but I'm one believing the pax event was a healthy and good thing. Women seriously are underappreciated and not recongized in the gaming industry. It's a male-dominated field that deserves equal access to women without harassment. I think in light of the terrible events that have been shed about riot games, they wanted to open this as an olive branch to women. I don't see the issue with that. Could it have been communicated more effectively? I certainly think so. At the end of the day though, it was a meeting meant for women.. and while barring men wasn't the best option, I think encouraging women to join and letting men know it's catered to them would've been more effective.
They can get recognized through achievements. Having a panel dedicated to celebrating women and stuff is nice and all, but the moment they excluded men, be it friends, boyfriend, father, sons, etc. That's when RIot shat the bed.
: Thank goodness (and finally)! Honestly, that was my main point of outrage. I can forgive the rest as it was morally grey on both sides, but I've dealt with suicidal thoughts in the past and having a rioter tell the male community to go kill themselves was the line of "this is something that really needs to be dealt with now" for me at least. The fact that it was done relatively quietly as to not cause more outrage was probably also for the best
Context? Did he help someone commit suicide or what?

Meddler (NA)
: Gameplay rationale: * Part of the reason Ryze has been hard to balance in the past is because he's mainly just brought damage. Giving him some more utility, and in a team focused way, allows us to give him power without him being as effective in a straight head to head fight. * A group teleport is an ability we've wanted to do for quite a while. First time we tried it, at least while I've been at Riot, was on Lulu. It showed promise, but we concluded it would work better on someone who could do well even if no allies went with them (we were still assuming Lulu would just get support play and not outduel a huge number of champs if solo, whoops). Thematic rationale: * Ryze is a ancient archmage who roams Runeterra searching for World Runes. He's been doing so for an extremely long time (centuries?). Some form of transportation magic seemed like a really strong fit for an eternal traveler as a result. * Unlike many of the other mages in LoL Ryze has time to master his craft. Annie or Syndra for example have a lot of innate power and raw talent. They're not yet very refined about it though, so tend to do one or two things really hard (burn stuff and smash things into other things respectively). Ryze however's got enough practice to have a broader mastery over his magical talent, so he's adept at doing a range of different things with the power he's got.
Oh hey, the last Red post I had before going on a year hiatus was you. And the first Red post I get is you again! You followin me around? :p I guess that makes sense. Kinda wish it was a bit more "epic ultimate"-y though, like if Ryze stomped the ground he teleports to and deal damage based on the number of heroes he carried with him. But that'd obviously cause more balancing headaches so I can see why it's what it is.
: At this point they are probably out of ideas of what to do to him and are just throwing out suggestions. The teleport makes little sense on him.

If you could joke around them, they wouldn't be SJWs now would they?
: I'm not going to downvote you but I won't upvote you simply for this fact. I love Illaoi, it breaks gender binary for females in games. Very rarely are females represented as the manly figure and I will probably play her for that reason also I'm curious about her playstyle. Riot is probably taking more time to create their females now so that they dont follow a stereotypical appearance for just busty women throwing around magic or weapons. I agree Poppy's update is great however i enjoyed her "I'm gonna do this cuz I'm a boss ass bitch personality." She had more flare. Now she's just a yordle trying to give a guy back his hammer or woman.... And what women did they slap armor on? For political reasons? Illaoi? Well hmmm maybe one female in this universe finally realized I can't go into battle wearing a couple strips of fabric, a bikini, or something skimpy. i understand where you are coming from with this thread but understand why some champions are made the way they are before just saying "stuff has been slapped on for political reason."
