: Fuck You Tank-Item-Rushing Garen Top Lane
Early game, there is ~%10 difference between DMP and BC on a full combo for Garen. He just doesn't scale well with items. DMP rush is legit for Garen now.
: [GAMEPLAY] Anivia - Wall glitches out in a certain portion, Garen manages to walk through
Are you sure that he didn't Q through the wall? Garen can Q very thin terrain. Oh yeah, the sword is glowing. That's his Q. That's not a bug. It doesn't always work either.
: I got higher ping and it stays
That doesn't sound very high, though.
: Is it just me or did the client font just change?
In this case, it's "just you". Windows uses that font when the true haven't haven't loaded yet. It happens in other programs.
: Who decided that? I don't see anywhere where the OP or even yourself have made the distinction of saying that people are ripping Riot's produced coverage of their pro games. The OP only says that people are recording pro games and showing them on youtube. I can record pro games too straight from the client. If I then do my own coverage and bring in my own people, etc.

Sidenote: I think the sportscasting and "testosterone fueled bro-play" is hilarious silly parody of actual sports. Sort of the reverse of "professional wrestling" coverage. I keep waiting for players to break out passive-aggressive rivalry and vendetta in the interview.

: > -Kai here. I am helping? Here is the OP post with some fixes. I am a player who started playing this game since season 4 start when jinx was released, and you wanna know what I learned those last 5 seasons? I learned how bad balance team is and how they are balancing the game. Im not trying to offence riot but honestly this game is not balanced at all. So if you wanna tell me that riot knows how to balance their game I will tell you some examples that proofs you why i left league and i will not play it again. 1)people cried complaining about old rengar when this champion was actually a skilled high elo champion who can be countered by vision guess what?no one taked vision to counter him but riot nerfed him no mather what when rengar got no mobility,waveclear and range damage. 2)zed getting buffed and nerfed a little bit with out doing any nerf to the main problem of the balance state which is mercurial scimitar does not delete hes ulti ga and banches veil are destroyed items and lethality. 3.1) assasins are strong at all with out any kind of skills if you just build lethality. 2) tanks got buffed in theyre damage and tankiness like there is no tomorrow. 3) marksmans are buffed and now they can even one shot with only crit items just because riot deciced to buff them and now enemys can poke you when you stay underturret and cant even farm and that not hapends only to bot lane 4) healing items are buffed and now a lulu kog maw premade can now 2vs8 the game. 5) mages got no cdr and mana problems great balance at all. 6) fighters can duel everyone right now thanks to conqueror and still being offtanky from items and runes they are given to them. 7) jungle camp is so easy to farm that even a 12 years old kid can farm the jungle wave clear right now. 8) players are being more toxic year by year and all my friends are gone. 9) reworks are destroying the balance at all by being to strong. > > (edit.

Kai again. I don't even know what to do for the above run on sentence. This is far beyond just formatting issues.

I'll take a shot: I am a player who started playing this game since season 4 start when Jinx was released, and you wanna know what I learned those last 5 seasons? I learned how bad balance team is and how they are balancing the game. I'm not trying to offend Riot but honestly this game is not balanced at all. So if you wanna tell me that Riot knows how to balance their game, then I will tell you some examples that will prove you otherwise. Why I left league and why I will not play it again: 1) People cried, complaining about old Rengar when this champion was actually a skilled high elo champion who can be countered by vision. Guess what? Nobody in those days built vision to counter him, but Riot nerfed him anyway (even though Rengar got no mobility, waveclear and range damage). 2) Zed getting buffed and nerfed a little bit with out doing any nerf to the main problem of the balance state which is: Mercurial Scimitar does not delete hes Ult, GA and Banshee's Veil are destroyed items, and lethality. 3) Assassins are strong at all with out any kind of skills if you just build lethality. [The "3.1" is an artifact of the board editor and sometimes impossible to correct.] 4) Tanks got buffed in their damage and tankiness like there is no tomorrow. 5) Marksmans are buffed and now they can even one shot with only crit items just because Riot decided to buff them and now enemies can poke you when you stay under turret and can't even farm and that problem is not particular to bottom lane. 6) Healing items are buffed and a Lulu/Kog'maw pre-made can now 2vs8 the game. 7) Mages got no cdr and mana problems, great balance at all. 8) Fighters can duel everyone right now thanks to Conqueror and still being offtanky from items and runes they are given to them. 9) Jungle camp is so easy to farm that even a 12-years-old kid can farm the jungle wave clear right now. 10) Players are being more toxic year by year and all my friends are gone. 11) Reworks are destroying the balance at all by being too strong. Honestly, no reason to play this game anymore. i hope that I give you the point of this post and what I am trying to say. I am saying it as a boosted Diamond 4 player who is hardstuck Platinum last 4 seasons. I played around 700+ ranked games and still being placed in Diamond. Don't forget: Zed is a skilled champion - that's why right now he can miss all his qs and still kills his enemies and kite enemies for whole day by getting cdr by items and bursting down enemies. Being the strongest assassin in League and still not getting nerfed is at the main problem of his bad balance and why the most people in this community hates him so much. Without any offense, I main Zed and i have to say: this champion is extremely boosted and some little nerfs won't stop him from destroying his enemies every game. THAT'S why people play him: strong pick = popular champion. i don't remember Zed being picked so much in the past, like season 4 and season 5. The funny thing is that I main him since season 4 (when I played a lot of normal games trying to level up to 30), and he wasn't even as strong then, as he is now. Despite all of this, Riot decided to buff him when he got range damage, awesome stacking damage in Ult, the highest burst damage stack as an assassin, his qs can also hit a lot of enemies, and he got the best kit as an assassin. THAT'S why people do not play Kha, Rengar, or Nidalle, Yi, Talon, or even Nocturne on laning phase: those champions just suck and not getting buffed at all like Zed cdr on his skills, damage, and mobility with out any waveclear management, and range.
: If they're just recording the games, that's no different than anyone else. How they edit them and all that is up to them, they can add whatever commentary they want, etc. If they're verbatim recording and uploading and replaying Riot's coverage of the eSports, then they're in actual hot water, because Riot has rights to their own productions.

But how much rights? Is it different from any other production that also gets shot up to youtube? Anyway, youtube policy seems to be to pull stuff if the original producers of the content complain about it. Why would anybody watch it on youtube, if they could just watch it on Riot own site? Everything is there, VOD, and interruption-free.

: Zz'Rot gives NO CREDIT for "damage dealt to turrets" on end game screen.
Yes, I contacted Support about this a while ago and was told that this is not a bug; it's intentional. The Voidspawn grant gold to the owner and nothing else - no stacks, no damage credits, no experience. It would be kind of bonkers if you could buy a Zz'rot, place it on the other side of the map, and collect XP for whatever the Voidspawn hit.
: Legalities of Recording Pro Games
In the first instance, Riot probably considers that these channels are ultimately a benefit to them as free advertising etc... Secondly, how is this worse than recording anything else?

: Luden Echo is such a great item, riot made another copy of it.
Actually OP has a valid observation. The other 3 items are unique, with regard to the current item catalog, compared to Runic Echos. This is no secret: the name is intentionally similar to the mage item. When Luden's was changed last year, Runic was changed similarly. Cinderhulk gives a weak version of the Sunfire Cape passive, but it has the unique property of % health bonus. Bloodrazer is more similar to BoRK, but it's not a copy of the item, merely complimentary. It scales on target's MAXIMUM health, with double the AS and no AD. Warrior is just stats, and there is no complete item like that, although it resembles the lethality items that build off of Warhammer as well. It also kind of resembled old Stormrazor, in the same sense. Anyway, it's just the logical finished item for Warhammer, that's all. It is assumed that Luden's is a core item for any AP caster who has any business jungling at all. Giving them a slightly nerfed version at a lower price is intended to help these junglers get an early power spike. Last season there was a "smite mid" strategy after the scuttler changes, and part of the reason that it was workable was this.

Sorry but who in their right mind is going to submit their ID? Not like people cannot just BS or use the ID of someone else in their family. You want to kill this game? Do just that.

Riot says that only 6 in 100,000 players ever get banned, so this should affect very few players. Again, just because a rule can be circumvented, is NOT reason not to have a rule. But it will send a message. Maybe it would lead to better behaviour from the players operating the new accounts. Anybody who sells on eBay has to submit ID. That's millions of people. It's not that rare. And if Riot suspects an account of actually being linked to a user who owes them money, then they already require "proof". Personally, I wouldn't have a problem with it. They already have my CC information, IP address, email, physical address. Clash participation is dependent on telephone (ID) confirmation, and the benefits were determined to outweigh potential user alienation. (But presumably, some users, like yourself, will decline to participate rather than relinquish their presumption of anonymity.) But, again, this would only ever affect a minute percentage of users, apparently.

It's just slightly more annoying than getting around an IP ban but equally pointless since it won't stop those who truly want to ruin the game for others but it also comes at the cost of affecting tons of other people who either don't know they can just get a free phone number in a multitude of places or people that don't trust riot with that sort of information and this is not mentioning those who not have a phone or an applicable phone number. If you are implementing something that won't affect anyone in a negative way then there is no risk. That is not the case here.

: AFK is too punishing for teammates
Riot doesn't want you to reach your appropriate level of Rank too quickly. The incidence of AFK is a considered factor in their reckoning.

Yeah, I'd rather have longer queues and better matches, and I think that most would agree. Whether for position or for MMR,

: When are we going to ban smurfing
I think that this may be one of the problems with trying to implement Clash. They did require phone numbers, but you also need to be ranked to play Clash. Officially, smurfing is not allowed in ANY game mode. But they only had the incentive to actively control it for Clash. Smurfing in any game IS reportable. In cases were a player appears to be intentionally manipulating MMR or boosting, then action may be taken. There are other problems, where MMR just lags or otherwise fails and we see people playing in games way below their level for even a hundred matches. It may not be intentional, but the effect is the same. I also think, that if Clash ever does get implemented, then Riot may use what they learn to begin cracking down on smurfs, or at least, previously banned players in new accounts.
: They do to make the lower elos worse for ranked. They feel they can not play with the rank they are currently at so them make new accounts to feel good ruining peoples games or they just dont care enough to win so they ruin games by not trying to stay at the low elo it is sad when people do it.

: I noticed my Font of Life healing exceeding the end of game stat for healing allies the last time I took it. My guess as to why is that some of the healing was reduced by grievous wounds. The rune stats don't appear to be consistent. For example, and I could be wrong on specifics, but I believe Shield Bash damage stat is reduced by the same reduction the armor reduces the damage by, but the Demolish stat seems to show the full damage before reductions. So if Font of Life is behaving similarly to Demolish in that regard, that would explain the situation.

So if Font of Life is behaving similarly to Demolish in that regard, that would explain the situation. Or maybe, it's not coded to be included. Because it feels like if the only reduction is instances of Grievous Wounds... then that's not enough to account for the disparity. Especially, where I was giving generous healing from other sources as well. (I mean... if EVERY instance of FoL was mitigated by GW, then that equals 1191, in my recent example. I am quite certain that I applied Heal for much more than the difference.) In any event, I'd want some clarification/confirmation.
: Is it worth getting the Trials Pass?
I'd need to have 400 tokens in my stash before I'll consider getting the pass late. I didn't care for any of the exclusive content in this event, and also noticed that there is NO free OE from this event - not available from the event orb, and no possibility to purchase chests with tokens. This event is good for BE farming, but I already have more BE than I can use. (Even with the BE Emporium coming up.) So didn't really "play the event". Nevertheless, if I accumulated 400 stash tokens then I'd have to consider that the pass is already "paying for itself". Of course, if there is a particular item that you want, then go ahead. You should have bought the pass at the beginning though, in that case.
: Why is there no MR item for support tanks?
Zz'rot should also be included. Mikael's maybe. And part of the reason, is that the main damage threat in bottom lane is traditionally from an ADC.
: Waht Do You Think About Match Making In League Currently?
In general, have to say, MMR system has improved. There are still problems. These problems generate much of the toxicity, especially in normals. An enemy only a couple of hundred MMR points above everybody else in the match, tends to make others in the game look like idiots. I see games taking place in normal Rust division, and there's a Master player in there somehow. I follow this guy's match history and I see that this persists for a week of arduous gameplay until MMR starts to catch up. It's not an isolated case.

: League's New Cursor Version's Problem
im using legacy cursor. its way better
: Am done Riot
OP is right. There should be some splashback from ranked. A Master-ranked player suddenly decides to play norms and now he can make every new player miserable for the next 100 matches until his normal MMR starts to catch up. This is the source for a lot of toxicity in low-level play, where players don't even recognize smurfs on the enemy team. If you don't believe that this happens, friend me and I'll show you a number of recent cases. I'm not saying that the smurf was doing it on purpose. But normal MMR that works completely independent of ranked is probably not helpful.

: free dodge when strangers ban your champ
This seems like a fair idea and an appropriate check. You can still ban your teammate's pick, and only run the risk of having the game dodged by a disadvantaged teammate. Seems like nobody loses. This might tend to encourage people to ban their teammates' champions, on the defense that "the teammate can now dodge the game with penalty, so why not?" Dodge timer should still apply, as with norms.
: A Case for why "Size" Should be a (Tank) Stat

What Does Size do? > > It makes you bigger. > Reported as units, or as percentage? Also, isn't this really a derivative of "Range"? (At least, for those melee tanks?) As a fantasy roleplay element - logically - most worn items should result in a small size increase, at least. (Coincidentally, these are usually tank items.) Stacking suits of armor should make you a bit ... bulkier... but we don't have Encumbrance in this game, and wielding 6 swords at once is no problem.

: 1. Guardian can shield yourself, so I can see why it might exceed that stat if it's your only source of shielding. Font of Life doesn't function similarly though, so that should be impossible. IOW, I don't believe you. 2. Yes, you're right. 3. Yeah I kind of don't understand why those rune stats aren't showing up on 3rd party websites. 4. Why not both? 5. I'd rather them give us another tab after runes, called items to see this information. 6. Okay I guess. I only have one rune page with this and so far I've only found success using it with 2 champions. Hadn't given it much thought. Being able to compare various champions' mileage with the keystone would be nice. 7. Yeah, we see it in game, so it should carry over to post game so that one doesn't have to load up a replay and skip to the end to get this information. While we're at it, maybe they should code in melee and ranged form activations separately so that we can calculate the exact value of HP gained for a champion with alternate forms. 8. I like the wards planted, I'm not sure if the vision score number is wrong but it is there. Also, why does Nocturne's ultimate give him CC score but not vision score? It's just what they chose to do but it seems silly because it's hard to tell how much he feared people. 9. Could be nice I suppose. What I would like to see in regards to this is that year in review stat "how many times did you press q/w/e/r?" I liked that stat. Could also put in things like accuracy rating of skillshots(maybe 3/4 ratings for some: minions/monsters, champions, both). Adding a fear duration stat to Nocturne/Warwick E would then help with problem 8. 10. Indeed. I usually don't have too much of a problem with this, but with the event going on now, I'm grinding harder than I usually do because wins give me a lot more experience than previously. +100 experience is a nice incentive to play a lot of games, but it also means when I want to watch replays it's very difficult to get at them since they're falling off the list for me to even access so I have to rename replays just to even watch them in game and click on the 'incorrect match replay button' to watch the older replays. I wouldn't have to download replays early and jump through such a hoop to watch them if you let us have a bigger match history in the client.

: My specs good enough to play league without constant lag?
Max out the RAM on your laptop. RAM is cheap. Installing an SSD if you don't already have one, will increase your frame rate slightly. You haven't said anything about the quality of your internet connection. Don't use Bluetooth or wireless components. If you don't have an SSD, then use the ReadyBoost feature. Disable all of the cosmetic features and aero (except for smooth screen font).

"Take a bullet for the team" - use a third-party to quickly assess if somebody on the enemy team is smurfing into the match. Fail to load in, so that your own team can re-make. This works better, of course, if you are queuing in with a friend who can explain to the team what is happenning. The few times that I have done this, my teammates at least, were all very happy that I saved them. Maybe if everybody does this, then Riot will finally fix the matchmaking.

: Stop throwing me into premade teams.
We could also offer a separate queuing option for those who wish to queue up with a 4-man (or at least are ok with it). Soloq should be just for solo play.
Raoul (EUW)
: Stop throwing me into premade teams.
The rando into a 4-man premade always feels trolled. really, double-trolled because 1) by his own team (even if they aren't trolling, it's isolating to be the odd one), and 2) hey, this isn't fair! I entered soloq (in norms, but still), so why am I having to face a full premade enemy?! Whenever I play with a 4-man, I always post our Discord channel in champ select and advise that we ARE a 4q. (It's the least that I can do.) (Occasionally, I am pleased when the I am the rando and the host team offers THEIR Discord.)
: When people ping your items

Lapis (OCE)
: How long before it's acceptable to take a new champ into ranked?
Never. It is never acceptable to take a new champ into ranked.
: Riot needs to allow account/login name changes
Tattoo removal is also difficult...
: Why are ward and emote selection disabled until you lock in your pick?
Riot: Please unlock emote and ward selections independent of champion selection. They are NOT like skin selection, the other cosmetic choice, which IS champion selection dependent.
: I've been stuck at Gold IV 0 LP for over 300 games, should I just give up?
Yes, there is no doubt. You should definitely "just give up". You'll be a happier person. Probably healthier and wealthier, besides. The wisest decision that you could make.
: AFK problem solved
A "fill" queue. If there are people prowling "customs" for matches to enter, then surely there would be volunteers for a "fill" queue. We could experiment with it in normals, surely.
