: I agree with Dynikus. Progressing feels like crap especially after a ban when you are dropped to honor 0. You feel like you have nothing to lose because you don't feel progression and therefore just cause people to troll more. The grind is real and without a feeling of progress, you just don't want to care or play anymore. And for people who haven't been banned before, It just felt like a chore to try to lvl up honor. Randomly you get rewards and are like "oh, I got a checkpoint". The honor system was designed to before people and root out toxicity, but I feel like it causes it when you fee hopeless to get things like the end of season reward.

They can have limbs and still aesthetically look like Meowkai's cats. Their face textures aren't even remotely similar, clearly despite the fact that Riot is intending the thematics to be similar with the cat pajamas and kitten minions. One, Meowkai, has cute, cartoon styled kittens. Meowrick has weird lifelike looking kittens. Yet Riot has attempted to merge them both into the same thematic, and it's extremely off putting.

Just because dogs are objectively more intelligent than cats doesn't mean cats aren't intelligent. Dogs tend to be more team oriented whereas cats figure stuff out on their own (or get into trouble because they do stuff on their own). They're both mammals though, which tends to mean they are pretty intelligent. Dogs have also been bred for much longer than cats, and bred to do specific jobs for humans. Sheep dogs are born to herd sheep. Lots of hunting dogs born to help hunters. Their nature as pack animals makes them very trainable as well (not that cats can't be trained). I mean, cats poop and pee in one place without being helped much (other than light some early training). If that's not intelligence, I don't know what is.

If that's not intelligence, I don't know what is. I'm not saying cats aren't intelligent, they clearly are. It's just that dogs are a bit more intelligent.
