: Patch 8.23 notes
CHAMPIONS: While the changes to Aatrox seem like they're a nerf to Aatrox, I read more into it and it seems like it was a buff to Lane Aatrox but a nerf to Teamfight Aatrox. Not only do you revive with more HP after you "die" but something to consider is that if you do decide to use your Ultimate before you go in for that dive, there is one way to guarantee that you get the revive... LET THE TOWER KILL YOU AFTER YOU KILL THEM! You can do this multiple times due to an extended laning phase. No joke, I think Riot may have made Aatrox more of a bully for it. I don't know how I feel about AP Ezreal now getting harder scaling on his W, since AP Ezreal Mid will now max this ability first... Guess we'll have to see how it feels on the live servers. Lissandra is a nice and welcome change to the old girl. Let's see if it lives up to it. Taliyah sounds like a case of Riot saying enough of this "X" Role bull****, go back to Mid Lane. If anyone remembers Malzahar Support, Riot tried to balance him around this before mini-reworking him to just suck in Support overall. Yorick... this was a long time coming. Glad he can't just mindlessly tower dive with minions tanking all the damage while he reaps the benefits. That's just not cool. ITEMS: Doran's change was very nice. It will definitely bring some assistance to Melee vs Ranged matchups which rely on AA harrass to gain their leads before going all-in. Guinsoo's... It's a bit of a joke, honestly. Jungle Items... it's nice for Junglers now that the boosting strats are dead. Wards and Trinkets... I see this more as a nerf to higher elos of play (think Plat+) since once you get a lead you can just ward out the map and there isn't much you can do to counter the vision since you risk getting collapsed on for even daring to go near them to clear them. TURRETS/MINIONS: This is a far better way to control the pace of the game. Reward players for getting leads but allowing scaling champions to not get completely boned by "4 man bot" plays. Minion scaling is nice, since it doesn't cuck the tempo of the game for the team that's killing it. RUNES: Great idea, Riot. More customization is always nice... BOUNTIES: Let's face it, this will hurt higher elos way more than lower since they know how to farm really well, and they don't really go for all out fights when there isn't something huge to contest (Dragon, Baron, Rift, etc.)... but it will help in lower elos of play for sure, as the minimum gold means it's always worth it to get some plebian out of the way if he's stalling out a push by simply sitting in lane and clearing waves. SUMMONER SPELLS: No more mind games for Teleport, this might change the meta of Teleport Users from "Take it or you're trolling" to "Only take it if you are going to play more split push or you have a huge teamfight ultimate (Malphite, Sion, Maokai are a few examples). Overall, it's a really good patch, nice to see some things are getting addressed. One thing I would have loved to see addressed was Garen, but that's more of a personal thing. I feel like Garen (as a basic champion) is in a far more powerful spot than he deserves. It's very easy to play him, and with so many different ways for his opponents to mess up, it's not very difficult for him to get a lead. One of the most cancerous ends of his kit (and by far one of the most questionable things in the game) is his Silence which lasts for two seconds. With just a slight lead, this is all the time Garen needs to take you from full health to dead. I think he could use 0.5 to 1.0 second silence since that allows him to do something but still allows his opponents to have some window to fight back.

First off, don't add people you don't know IRL on Snapchat... Second, report any unauthorized actions to your bank. They will do what they must to make it right. If he messes with your bank account he can be pursued by federal authorities for federal crimes. Third, submit a Support Ticket to Riot Games. They can help you recover your stolen account. It will take some time but as long as you can prove you're the account's creator, you can get it back no problem. I'm sorry you got into this predicament, hopefully this helps you get things straightened out.
: It would be an interesting experiment, yeah. Unfortunately I just don't really have the time these days, as between my job and my personal projects I simply don't have as much time for League as I used to, and I'd prefer to play with my friends during the time I do have. Ultimately I have fun with the game, and that's really enough for me, especially because I'm really not too concerned about what color icon is next to my name. :)
I totally get that, man. The ideal situation would be to do this in Season 9 after all the ranked changes come out. One game a day for the results seemed fair (as I assumed you weren't one of those guys who live streams and has time to play 10-15 games a day). With Season 9 changing the ranked experience and it being all about climbing and improving in your "off-roles", it could be interesting. You said League is more of a social thing rather than competitive... perhaps you could find yourself a duo partner or three and do the experiment in Season 9. I got a few bucks that says you'd end up in mid-to-high Gold by the end of it... If you ever decide to do it, post the results here please! {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}}
: Logged in to see i'm perma banned
Glad to hear you're back on the rift... and Riot... please... go tell Blitzcrank to jump off a cliff into the scrap heap cause he's garbage.
: To be honest I don't even care about her shroud design, but her 2nd part of her R that deals % Missing Health is what annoys me so much.
The trick is to ruin her lane phase before she gets her ultimate. Doing that makes it harder for her to execute people early. My advice: Learn how to play this champion ({{champion:103}}) and enjoy the freelo that comes with it.
: Well, Akali has a resource bar. It just isn't mana. Vlad, on the other hand? Yeah, fuck Vlad. I'm glad we both hate Vlad.
How can you hate Vlad when he sucks you off without demanding payment!
: > {{champion:107}} This dude's bullshit, along with LeBLanc, was the poster boy of the assassin rework in the first place. Also, what type of assassin design doesn't have a way out of fights? He's practically a fighter. He isn't an Assassin anymore. Riot treats him as a Diver.... I find it ironic you bring in the Diver Rengar, but not Kha.
Kha'Zix isn't very popular at the moment, and I never see him in my games. I'm more likely to see Master Yi/Kayn due to the insane ability of these champions to pub stomp when they get even a slight lead.
: I've given it long enough: I don't understand the hate for Akali
> {{champion:7}} : EXTREMELY little in the way of counter-play. The most time you have to react to her is the time she takes to finish her dash. If she isn't hard-cc'd she can just poof away. Having played Ahri into Leblanc, Lux into Leblanc, Leblanc has no way of handling these champions. She can't really get close to Ahri without eating a Charm and she just flat out can't get close to Lux because Lux's abilities have a minimum range of 1000 units. This champion's counterplay is that her kit is utter garbage versus anyone with a longer range than her. Play a burst mage and unless you're a braindead monkey, she will get stomped into the ground so easily. > {{champion:105}}: The dude's "Chum then bum (rush)" game play, combined with his E just nullifying incoming damage with little effort, has struggled to find a sweet spot to rest on for years. Either he doesn't even need his whole kit to bum (rush) you, or he's the one getting bum (rushed) throughout the entire laning phase. Dude's 1-5 is insanely weak, and the spike at level 6 is extremely polarized in comparison. Honestly, if you ask me, if his level 6 was LESS deadly, you could use it as justification to make his 1-5 less pathetic, because it's fucking pathetic and is the reason his level 6 has such a a sharp spike. His level 3-5 is fairly decent vs any mid-long range mage, since with Electrocute he can threaten a trade as soon as you use your abilities and he dodges with his troll pole. If he gets level 6 first, he can pretty much zone most champions off their experience just by threatening to ult them and do the "Chum and Bum" that you described. If you ask me, his ult should be something a little bit weaker given that he should be more about skirmishing a little bit more due to his mobility early on. It shouldn't be so powerful that simply having it is enough to deter your laner from farming. > {{champion:76}}: Either runs the whole jungle by herself or stays by herself while the rest of the roster gets to have fun. Idk what Riot's gonna do about this champ. In most elo's that's the case with most junglers. The assassin junglers require their team to not lose the game early in order to be able to do anything. Another good example of this is Evelynn at the present time. Eve is still in a state where she can run the jungle or stays by herself, similar to what you described for Nidalee. The trick to making Nidalee work is that you need to respect that you can't win early duels without some setup (target is low, key summoner spells/abilities are down, etc.) but once you start to get a lead you can't be easily stopped. If Nidalee can't gank early on, she can look to use her faster clear times to counterjungle the enemy jungler, invade for vision and wait for a good time to make a pick, etc.

: So tell me, A plat and a bronze state the exact same thing. Who's right? Put some thought into it. Take some Tylenol if you need to.
While they both might state the same thing, one has to understand that they are not playing the same game of League of Legends. One of those players has a much broader understanding of the game on a macro and micro level. One of them is also more prone to making the most retarded arguments known to man. (Y'all know you've seen/heard a Bronze player arguing with his team - it's complete and utter nonsense. Compare that to a Platinum player who may know what he's talking about but still get into the same nonsensical argument due to clashing egos.) In truth, both can be right but only one of them will know why he is right. The other will say he's right because "i said so", or whatever childish method they choose to employ.

I always thought you were a higher elo... (Not that I think less of you for being silver. I'm silver myself.) To be honest, I can't really say what my ELO would be if I really put in the effort, because for me *League* is primarily a social game, and I queue up ranked with friends regardless of their MMR. My highest was mid-Gold a few years back but, again, I didn't take it seriously: we're talking under 30 games a season, which isn't enough to be especially accurate. So I can't really say. There was a time I could hold my own against Diamond players in normals, but I've definitely gotten rustier and more prone to just chilling in games since then, so I suspect I've lost that ability on all but a select few champions.
Well, if you were interested, you could use your main account and tryhard for 100 games in Solo Queue as a party of 1 for a period of four months (so we'd be talking less than one game a day where you would be tryharding on your main champs in ranked). You could use Normal games and Flex Queue to play with friends since League is a social thing for you. If you had multiple accounts you could do this on a smurf. (Same deal: 100 Ranked Games over a period of 4 months, tryharding every time as a party of 1.) I'd be interested to see where you came out in Season 9! (You may even surprise yourself!) {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
: Improving Report Feedback
I think it's a nice way of saying "Thanks for contributing to Riot's efforts to remove toxicity" without all the pop-ups (although I always enjoyed logging in after a previous day's game where I had to endure a toxic player only to see the pop-up that said, "Someone you reported got punished! Thanks!" It felt good to know he got his come-uppins). On a totally unrelated topic, are you actually in Silver? I always thought you were a higher elo... (Not that I think less of you for being silver. I'm silver myself.) {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
Rioter Comments

: I'm actually super hyped about this event! I loved the SG event with the PvE mode and am super looking forward to this mode as well. The missions on the other page also enlightened to another Onslaught mode, this time with better rewards for doing the more difficult missions. Some peeps complained the SG mode was "too hard" but let 'em cry I say! The aliens attacking these worlds aren't gonna make it easy and I'm certainly ready for the challenge! Bring it on! (If we're gonna be serious for a moment though, they gave me Ziggs in this mode; this won't even be a challenge.) {{sticker:sg-miss-fortune}}
I personally thought SG Invasion was a bit hard when you had five randoms with no way to communicate but if you were a premade it was pretty fun. Voice Comms in these modes would make the game superb imo.
: Odyssey: Extraction
I kinda wish you could only pick one of each champion... I hate when I get a team of 4 Yasuos with a Ziggs and I get flamed for not going Malphite.

: Champions I really wanna see nerfed.
Zed's kit isn't broken or overloaded, he is just super annoying to lane against. A good Zed can feel extremely oppressive where a less skilled Zed can feel extremely underwhelming. He's countered by anyone who can deal poke damage from long range but excels post-3 with most mages. Yasuo is basically the same a Zed. Super annoying to lane against. However with him, if you can bait out his Windwall, his survivability goes down significantly vs any champs with ranged CC. Draven... seriously? You wanna bitch about Draven? He takes skill to play. Get a support who has good poke/CC and have them zone him safely and you win. Master Yi? In complete honesty, with the new rune, Hail of Blades, he's pretty scary early on, and with his 2-item power spike, he can one-shot a lot of squishy champions. I think Master Yi could use some CD nerfs to balance this out or possibly a nerf to his attack speed scaling and his E's bonus damage, but I don't know which would be appropriate. In all honesty, Veigar's kit is just super anti-fun since he has a way of scaling in both mid-lane and support. I feel like the best way to hit that is to take away the scaling on his Q on minion kills and make his scaling all about hitting champions.
: Technically isn't the "block" feature on our friends list supposed to 'mute' players chat in pre and post game lobby? I haven't had the opportunity to test this out but it's how I would expect it to work. Even if it does work that way though, it's still unwieldy.
If you block someone on the game client, you will never be able to see their pre- or post-game chatter in any of your future games.

Seeing a ton of tanks getting buffs towards late game is cool and all but it makes me think that we're about to go through another tank meta and those never sit well with the community. I'm concerned that this will lead to a number of tanks becoming... overpowered (i.e. unkillable but still dealing a fuck-ton of damage... think Yorick, Darius, etc.). I'm hoping this won't happen but let's not forget about the last tank meta we were subjected to... Yorick and Darius are not tanks. Yorick is a fighter like WW/Trundle, and Darius is a Juggernaut like Garen/Illaoi.
Yorick is a Bruiser and Darius is a Juggernaut but both are classes of tanky champions. If Yorick was a fighter you'd see him building more AD than tanky items. You're being nit-picky over nothing. Both are tanks and both do insane amounts of damage while still building tanky.

: Patch 8.15 Notes
I'm happy to see the Fiddle and Quinn changes, both are insanely oppressive in-lane, glad to see they're finally getting some nerfs. On the flip side, a better way to change Morgana is not to just remove power from E and Q but put some power back into her W in the form of reduced mana costs to make it more enticing to max W second or even to play Mid Morgana and max W first. I would like to see Ahri get a little more love in the form of more movement speed in her Passive (right now it's basically just a super shitty Phase Rush). Maybe give it 30% movespeed when she does it right. It would give her some escape options in lane outside of "Flash is down, Guess I'm dead".
: Explaining the Echo Fox vs. Clutch Gaming Ruling
I saw a high elo YouTuber attempting to recreate the bug that crashed the game server and over numerous tries, he only got it to happen once. This is the first time I've seen a bug like this and I think with it being hard to trigger, it isn't on Riot for not seeing this coming. No one could. As for the ruling on the game and the existence of the rule which only goes into effect if the game cannot be Chronobreak'd... It's remarkable that this rule Riot put in place years ago hasn't seen use until this match and I think that when you look at how the game was panning out, CG really didn't have much of a chance. I'm not saying FOX was definitely going to win, but in a majority of games, with this kind of lead, the team in the lead is slated to win 99% of the time. Good ruling in my opinion but a shame that it came to this.

: "If you call him/her a retard, the system sees you as no better." Just horrible. I always at least try playing my games seriously, when I get people who obviously are trolling and trying to lose the game, what then? I mean I called that guy names last time and I got a chat ban while he just continued playing like nothing happened. Something just seems wrong about a system like that. So wrong.
You don't necessarily know if he got punished or not. You don't notice that you have Chat Restriction until you get into game after it happens. Besides, if you do report him and the system finds it valid, it's a strike against his account. If he continues the behavior, he will get Chat Restricted or if the situation warrants it, banned (possibly permabanned). Just do your best to use your best friends, /mute all and /fullmute all, to keep it in check. Take it from me, it's more worth to do this than have 4 of your accounts perma'd and still make the mistakes.

LS literally calls people out for that shit all the time. People in League always think they deserve a higher rank when they clearly do not. (Full disclosure: I believe I deserve Gold IV at the very least. My lane mechanics are solid, I do not play champions I do not understand or that do not "click" with me, and I know how to abuse a lead and mitigate a deficit. These things helped me to learn the game and get better. Often the reason I lose games is because players play well around me and my team refuses to adapt to win games. [i.e. That Nasus who always rushes Tri-Force when vsing a Bruiser when he needs to rush a few tank items to mitigate the damage he takes when he does get into bad fights.]) I used to be in that boat, building Sion Tank with Armor when facing a Malzahar and wondering why in the hell I took so much damage... only to realize I needed to build Magic Resistance, then Malzahar didn't have shit on me no more.) Yeah, that's me, I don't know a lot of things about LoL. I'm sure if I actually played ranked I'd be in bronze or low silver because my mechanics are pretty mediocre and I make lots of mistakes. To be fair, I think about 25% of my problem is that I don't know the heroes well outside of botlane, and even then, I'm not familiar with some of the rarer botlane picks. So all the little things like "Does Ekko deal magic or physical damage?" and "Who is Zilean, and what is his ult?" are things I don't really know.
I doubt your mechanics are that bad but as far as mistakes go, so long as you can read a situation well you can identify when your mistakes will really make a difference. (i.e. I overextended when I was 2/0/0 in lane and died trying to get that 3/0/0 kill against an underfarmed and underleveled Syndra. Sure she gets kill gold for it but in the long run, she can't use that to make a meaningful impact given that she is low and doesn't have a lot of waveclear in her kit. <-- That's an example of when a mistake won't cost you heavily. An alternative situation is doing that vs a Yasuo, who has a lot of waveclear in his kit, can shove the wave in quickly and force you to miss a lot of XP, gold, and causes the wave to bounce meaning it's in a more favorable position for him when he comes back to lane after basing for items and HP regen.) It took me 4 years to get to where I am today, where I understand most of the champions and can read the map fairly well as well as get an idea of what will come next patch based on the notes alone. Don't get discouraged. If you need help, ask well-thought-out questions, or ask stupid questions... there is no right way to tell you how to ask your questions. Just ask, people will help you. (BTW Ekko deals primarily magic damage, and Zilean is a support who's ultimate is basically a GA that can be cast on him or his teammates when they're about to die. Don't try and kill them before it wears off, or do and be prepared to CC the target down so they can't run. :)

: We good now, sorted it out on Discord. :D Thing is, I have never gotten an account banned for any amount of time explicitly for verbal abuse. I actually don't do that, if people are having a bad day that's fine. I may comment on how bad they are doing but will never bring that to the point when it becomes abuse. What DOES trigger me is when I get the griefers and the inters who entered that game solely to ruin it for everyone else. That's when I just can't hold back and I just say stuff. Or when I get the "I don't want to surrender only so I could iritate you and waste your time" kind of people. It's not that they want to try to win, they literally do it only to prolong an already lost cause, which is beyond triggering. I mean It's not like I'm flaming that badly, you can see the logs for yourself I posted them, but I guess it's still enough for me to get a chat ban. I've been getting these like 20 game restrictions for some time actually. And tbh I don't think this is the last one. Riot wants us to have this false ggwp, glhf, better luck next time, always positive cheery attitude when the game clearly brings out the worst out of people. I'm not gonna be negative in a game like out of nowhere, for nothing, but when I get a disco griefing Nunu in my game, what am I supposed to say? "Just a bad game friend, it's all okay." Lol. I ain't gonna do that, and the least Riot could do is try and punish these people more than they do right now. Cause they don't at all. Right now, someone calling someone who is griefing and ruining the game a retard is more of a problem than the person doing the griefing, which is completely absurd to me.
It all comes down to actions. If you call him/her a retard, the system sees you as no better. Now if you report them and you are (by IFS's standards) an angel in game, any reports directed at you will be counted as null and void (Heh {{champion:38}} ). I would warn you though about keeping your nose clean in both pre- and post-game chatter as IFS now scans them as well. You heard me right, you can now get permabanned for things you said to your teammates both before you entered a game or after you finished a game.

Self Defense would be muting your team and reporting their behaviors with comments in the notes for more context.

(Full Disclosure -- AkumaNoKitsune1 is my 5th League account, my other 4 previous accounts were permabanned for Verbal Abuse.)

: As a new player who never played a MOBA before now, and is in a low MMR with good reason, I'm slightly surprised at how many people in my games think they're pros. I'm not even in comp, and at my rate I'm not planning on going into comp for awhile. That's true with any game, I guess, but it seems especially noticeable when players do things without reason, and those things get them killed. Like, why are you being so aggressive with the enemy laners when you're taking more damage then they are? Why are you wandering around the enemy side jungle with no vision anywhere? I'm new and don't know what the crap I'm doing, and _even I_ notice these things. How can people not notice that and think they belong in diamond?

Also, if you want inting, search for Pornstar ZIlean and his 0/48/0 Nunu Clarity Clairvoyance game THAT HE WON. {{sticker:zombie-brand-mindblown}}

: Yea, I think I will talk to the mods on the discord channel because I do not know how can a Riot representative be defending behavior like this.
I don't think that he's a Riot Employee (they employ many volunteers to help them maintain their stuff both here and on Discord). Furthermore, I'd just mute the players trying to ruin your day rather than call them names. Calling them names doesn't do anything for you but make you look bad. Good luck on reforming, cause if you don't, you'll get permabanned soon enough. (Full disclosure -- I have 4 permabanned accounts, 3 of them for verbal abuse.)

: "We knew Xin Zhao needed to be swift, forceful, strong, and mysterious..." I hate and love you.
You must be SWIFT as the coursing river, With all the FORCE of a great typhoon, With all the STRENGTH of a raging fire, MYSTERIOUS as the dark side of the moon. We need a line referencing Mulan if you're gonna use those types of words to define Xin Zhao.

: Hey we're looking into this now. Hang tight and the server will pick up that the match has ended. This is being looked into now, and I'll offer more info as it comes.
Porocles, good sir, I've been waiting for hours and it's still not changing. I'm not sure if anyone else is struggling but I'm kinda losing my cool pretty fast (I want to play some League...)

: I wonder if Evelynn will get her old pre-rework long stealth back. Or will Riot once again force her to build a tank with no burst..
I don't think the long-standing stealth Evelynn had was healthy for the game as a whole. I don't mind having something like camouflage (with a range similar to Twitch - and I think Twitch's Camouflage range needs to be extended. It's unreal how assassin-like he is for an ADC come late game), but it has to give enough room to be fair but not too much to be unviable in Ranked Play. I won't say that it's a bad thing Evelynn got a rework, but it is definitely nice to see her get a rework and I cannot wait to see what she has become on the PBE. I hope I get the same feels from seeing her played as I did reworked Warwick (who was by far one of the better reworks).
: Lol, did you just say she _isn't_ only a Q spam bot pre 6? Good joke.
Most good Kats will try to abuse their opponents bad positioning around their daggers after level 2, and after level 3, she can all in with Ignite and KILL. Dangerous versus any squishy carry, especially the glass cannon artillery types.
: I heard Toxicity is down in the League community
To be honest, the matter at hand is not toxicity but rather the toxicity that erupts from new players who get to level 30 too quickly. While I like that Riot is trying to get more people into its ranked system faster, they're only getting more Bronze, Silver, and Gold ELO players. I won't lie that it's easier to smurf now b/c it's easier to get to 30 but most players I come across have very little skill in their roles before entering ranked and most treat player requests like they're flaming even when their intention aren't wrong. A way to fix toxicity is to extend the amount of time new players have to play before they can get into ranked, maybe a little more than just 16 champions. Maybe require them to play 500-1000 games before entering ranked or something. Riot is letting the inexperienced kids ruin the game and this isn't gonna grow a community in a healthy way.
: OP get promo series to bronze 4 after 2 years as bronze 5, and is subsequently convinced that ELO hell isn't real and that he's grown as a person. {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}}
To be brutally honest, I didn't do a lot of ranked due to people trolling a few years ago but it has dropped dramatically due to a lot of the changes that League has seen. On top of this, I did want to climb and possibly do something like streaming for it, but the only way I can have any weight per se is to have a rank worthy of a stream, so that's why I'm diving more into ranked.

: Ty man, i'll try that splitpushing part. But when i say nice things to my teammates, they be like "shut the fuck up kid", so that won't rly help me. And when they keep annyoing me/ flaming me, i get pissed off, instead of muting them, i sometimes start arguing with them, wich is dumb i know. Im trying my best all my games
He's got a good point on split pushing. If you do get fed and can win a duel, you can go into a side lane and push. If you draw a responder, your team can probably win a 4 v 4 teamfight depending on who came to deal with you. If they send 2, you're really a nuissance and not someone they wanna 1 v 1 duel, meaning your team can win a 3 v 4 and possibly get an objective. If they send 3, that's a free pair of objectives for possibly one death. Or if you're Illaoi, you just rip a spirit, ult, and win a 3 v 1, b/c logic... {{champion:420}}
: ***
Not necessarily. He's saying make good decisions and don't use your skill to tilt another player. They might get mad but getting mad is the first step to getting good, but only in the sense that frustration is the first step to growing.
: Oh, in ranked there is no mercy. In ranked, I will tower dive that 0/5 enemy laner for another free kill and then spam my level 7 emote afterwards.
Sooooooooo true. I've gone in Ranked and played Illaoi top against a guy who didn't seem to understand how to lane against her. He fed me and when his team tried to help him I just got killing sprees. No mercy in ranked but after the game... you can talk about it and help them grow. They do need wisdom, but they don't need teeth. {{champion:420}}
: I love this. This is amazing and is absolutely right. This needs to be stickied and endorsed. It's okay to smurf for whatever your reason is. Just be helpful and don't be an ass. Remember, not everyone smurfs. There are actual new players that need to be taught. Upvote this for DAYSSSSSSS http://m.imgur.com/gallery/gdAqzdU
I once played with a Garen who at level 3 (yes an account at level 3) "What's Meta?" and a friend of mine (well, former friend now) explained it in full to him. As a result, he gained knowledge and grew as a player. Smurfing isn't bad but it's the toxic players that use smurfing to pump up their own ego that give it a bad name. We smurfers need to learn how to not be dumbasses and to be good teachers of the potential next generation of summoners.
: This is the game I question, note in other games I said things like "f'ing this" ... not deragatory towards someone, but I suppose that was enough to justify those games getting reported as any profanity is reportable right? Anyways, this is the last game with two guys in a duo harassing me all game, not the yi ran around mid the entire game, and even after he was 6, all he did was camp his friends lane bot and ignore top and mid. I kept pinging everytime I needed help and was pushed (I was kass vs katarina).... I wasn't behind, I wasn't feeding, I wasn't dying, and I didn't lose lane. THey just out of nowhere start raging on me saying I was griefing and all that, I try to generally not mute people unless i have to, and i shouldv'e here, but still I don't see where I was reportable. Game 1 Postaldave: gotta focus katarina all game Postaldave: everyone Postaldave: don't let her feed Postaldave: lee and lucian are 2nd priority Postaldave: wtb kass skin Postaldave: gl hf Postaldave: kat no ginite of lash Postaldave: no summs Postaldave: 3rd time pinging for help yi Postaldave: you afk? Postaldave: get out bot Postaldave: 4 Postaldave: wtf bot Postaldave: sigh Postaldave: just remake Postaldave: lol Postaldave: you were dead in 1 hit yas Postaldave: bot fed kat and she just gonna keep going Postaldave: 6 PINGS... NO HELP FROM YI Postaldave: jinx wtf? I said nothing to you (added note - at this point, jinx is spam harassing me, saying to report me and all that jazz.) Postaldave: stop being a dbag Postaldave: yi is NOT helping Postaldave: it's a fact Postaldave: ty' Postaldave: yas no ping? Postaldave: gg Postaldave: it's over Postaldave: wtf? (added note - at this point he is really raging on me and lying to /all) Postaldave: jesus you are salty Postaldave: read the chat dude, i'm not even talking to you Postaldave: I said "not getitn help form yi" Postaldave: ok, Postaldave: i'm done, you all are sad, I was not rude or greifing Postaldave: team is salty Postaldave: I think we gonna lose Postaldave: that's all Postaldave: it's not personal Postaldave: you are a 3 year old, muted and reported for harassment Postaldave: this jinx is really salty Postaldave: I'm almost b2 tard Postaldave: nice try though Postaldave: you looked up wrong, haven't been 5 for a long time Postaldave: nice try Postaldave: jinx keeps raging lol Postaldave: for the record, not attacking her or anything Postaldave: jesus Postaldave: sorry yas, all I had and he just healed Postaldave: are you still talking? Postaldave: nobody listening to you jinx Postaldave: drag yi Postaldave: ? Postaldave: sigh Postaldave: bad move Postaldave: well kinda worked out Postaldave: we turn tide and start winning, then yi rages on us Postaldave: wtf? Postaldave: the same yi who didn't gank mid 1 time Postaldave: i'm positive you should be happy Postaldave: lies Postaldave: you salty af Postaldave: why you so hard up to report me Postaldave: your opinion is too so we have that in common yi Postaldave: why doy ou have to report Postaldave: are you guys that hard up Postaldave: for drama Postaldave: i'm in my 30's thanks, not trolling, but keep trying to lie bud Postaldave: they check logs and will just turn your report on you Postaldave: idgaf Postaldave: i play for fun, it's a game Postaldave: keep saying that yi, I still don't care (y is spamming that “you suck kassadin” and other such things) Postaldave: i didn't lose lane Postaldave: just know jinx and yi are toxic AF, ignore them Postaldave: I'm well off enough I don't ahve to work everyday jinx, you? Postaldave: ahh, fresh out of highschool and knows it all (He said he was 18 in response to me being 30) Postaldave: and who cares? oh right, nobody Postaldave: report me, nobody cares, you are sad Postaldave: nah, just got nothing better to do Postaldave: cus I type fast Postaldave: damn Postaldave: lol Postaldave: wp olaf, what else can be said Postaldave: nice try yas, not sure what else we could've done there Postaldave: other than not engage Postaldave: splitting bot Postaldave: giving them elder or ? Postaldave: notice teams with toxic people always lose Postaldave: still reporting you too and don't care Postaldave: isn't this fun Postaldave: glad oyu played?
Honestly, as a player who has played mid lane with many different junglers, rather than harping on your jungler not ganking you should be focusing on a few things. 1) What is he doing with his power? Is he denying creeps to the enemy jungler by counterjungling them? Is he helping out a lane that is in the same boat? Is he making a huge play around a major objective? Is he pushing a tower down with another laner? Learning how to do this and adapt playstyle accordingly helped me to become a better laner and a much lighter hearted player. 2) You were chatting a lot even for someone in their 30s. I'm in my 20s and even I know that typing isn't worth it. If your Jinx ADC was becoming a keyboard warrior that game, that's fine, let her. Don't follow her. Trust the system to not wrongfully punish you and mute/report her. You really got toxic and passive aggressive in chat and that's what hit you with the punishment.

: Doesn't the card give you three games?
I got chat restricted after two games of insanely toxic behavior (actually using the n-word). The bans are sent out on the basis of the level of the toxicity (in my case, rather quickly since I used racial slurs). There's no amount of games required to see a chat ban, just based on the toxicity and how often it gets reported.
: Its a computerized system, the person who designed it (he is on here/ the forum) is not a very bright person. It will miss these acronyms . The actual review by a moderator nearly never happens.
The amount of different ways to type something never boggles my mind. For example: - Fack you - Feck you - Fcuk you All ways to say fuck you and the system won't catch it. Same with this: - suck my cuck - cucksucker The system won't catch these, but a human reading it will. Only way to stop things like this or people typing such things as KYS (Kill YourSelf) is to report them to Riot as verbal abuse and let a human see it who won't be so easily fooled.
: Few Ahri Skin Ideas
As an Ahri main with a lot of games on the Fox herself (can't say how many but it's quite a lot) and a lore enthusiast, I can tell you that some of your skin concepts just don't fit Ahri from a lore perspective. But before judging what I say, let me spell out my opinion. Blood Moon and Soul Stealer seem like awesome concepts, but each carries a darker aspect to the champion and is usually reserved for Champions with dark intentions (such as Thresh, a torturous vindictive Warden's spirit, Kalista, a vengeful revenge-spirit, and Yasuo, a melancholy swordsman who is just freakin' deadly). Silver Moon is more of a Targon-based idea and I think it would be an interesting twist on someone like Leona or Diana personally. Succubus is kinda a really good idea. Ahri is by nature a human-fox hybrid who can be an absolute demon in lane when she is played well, and I think this skin is probably the closest you have to a good skin concept and I'd love to see you develop this idea further. On Pool Party... Let's be honest, no one is gonna deny that Ahri would look really good in a bikini. I'd love to see a concept piece for this. So there you have it, my honest opinion. (This was posted while on a smurf account, my main is ShadowEagle0117 and I'm on the NA Server)
: Pencils down: Party Rewards test concludes
The system felt rather weak and almost pointless. I like the concept but there needs to be a slightly more substantial reason to play with friends. I can make up to 50 IP doing a few extra solo games. If you want to be encouraging people to play with friends, the reward needs to be a bit more substantial.
: Correction: Please delete {{champion:432}} from the game... Waste of space and designed exclusively for LCS. Sub-LCS class players will *never* use him right...
I think you're not giving the community (especially the High Elos) any credit here. No one besides Challenger-level players, Riot Employees and anyone on the PBE are gonna know how to handle Bard as a Champion. He's a wonderful champion, but you don't know how to wield him. Don't go making these sorts of comments, it really doesn't help in this thread.
