: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: March 20
Any word on Zilean in house? I know you guys were tossing around the idea of changing him up a bit to make him more satisfying (his passive specifically). Is that an Idea that went anywhere or is going anywhere any time soon, or is more like you want to do something but it's a bit like a Wukong issue for his players and it's really far back on the backburner and will only be brought back up if someone comes up with a stellar idea?

: It's an interesting concept, I feel like there's a lot of things you can do with the concept you're going for. Might I suggest a different ultimate? The one you have now seems to kind of step on Neeko's toes, and I feel like "ulti and jump into the enemy team" ultimates are a little bit overplayed. Might I suggest something like this? R: The Great Heist X becomes camouflaged (can be seen within ~300 range) and emits an aura (~600 range) that temporarily saps (10% bAD) AD and (10% AP) AP from enemy champions per second for 10 seconds. Upon breaking camouflage X deals damage in that area equal to the amount of AD and AP sapped. I know this isn't really an ultimate that really fits someone on a support income, but I feel like there could be a fair amount of potential gameplay and outplay potential from either side with this kind of ultimate, as opposed to one where you just jump into the enemy team while untargetable.

Note: this is the fourth time writing this, I keep somehow clicking something that deletes it all. Why is this my luck with Boards posting lately... I agree that my ult is severely lacking, tbh it was an afterthought and I dislike it for the same reasons you do. Your ult is leagues better, I especially like the concept of weaving through the enemy team trying to charge your ult without being seen. I'm not sure if it was intended, but I also think it would be cool if being seen/attacked ended the charging early so that you really feel the risk/reward of it. That being said, this ult also in that it feels almost like a Swain ult with camo, that it steps into Sylas thematic domain, and that stat-stealing has been done a lot (even if this is a cool twist on it). To fix these issues, we probably can't steal/reduce the enemy's damage, and we'll probably have to make it not a large circular AOE. Thus: R: The Great Heist X becomes unable to use his basic abilities and is camouflaged (can be seen within ~200 range) while emitting an aura (~600 range) that stores damage equal to 1% of the enemy's current gold on hand (of those in range) every second for 10 seconds. Champions affected by this are unable to use those funds until Open the Vaults is cast. If camouflage is broken, or if X recasts his ult early, The Great Heist is replaced with Open the Vaults. Open the Vaults Fires a cone out dealing [the stored damage/stolen gold amount] (max: 750/1000/1250) + X (TAD) Physical damage to all enemies hit (40% damage to monsters and minions). If the ability is not cast within 30/35/40 seconds or if X dies while having not cast it, X instead does a small AOE centered around him dealing [half stored damage] + X (TAD) Physical damage to all enemies hit (40% damage to monsters and minions hit). {TAD ratio is same for both uses, can use basic abilities while Open the Vaults is usable}. The gold amount and duration of the aura would probably need a lot of tuning, but using your idea as the base, I feel like this is a high quality ult that feels completely original in league and would be satisfying to use. They even have the choice to hold onto the ult to disadvantage the enemy team (mostly for high level play), the idea being you can either sit in base for an extra 5-10 seconds waiting for your gold to return (if they hold for full duration and the enemy died without you using Open the Vaults) or go back to lane and not miss CS. Just so that the stealing the gold can actually be felt by the enemy team for a little bit, but nothing more than a slight inconvenience (unless you're playing a really high level game) so that people don't call for it's removal.
: have him be able to use trap doors that spawn all around the map, but he cannot place them. he gets a movement speed increase when traveling in the trap door, but it is not as fast as old rek'sai ult. make him a supp-jung like ivern. but instead of being bob ross on shrooms, make him a zuanite gutter-snipe. or bilgewater cutpurse...god we need a new bilgewater champ, its been fucking ages.
I was honestly thinking he would be a Bilgewater cutpurse. Though, given the abilities I've given him, in this state he would need to be melee (I also want someone with this thematic to be melee).

: Gameplay/Client Feedback Megathread: One +, One -
**Positives:** * It's nice to hear that Riot has been thinking about ways to deal with trolling better. In fact it's nice to see the response/talk on pain points in general. Not something I would have expected, or even bothered hoping for a year ago. * The balance changes lately have been, for the most part, rather quick and to the point. It doesn't feel like people are being left horrifically unbalanced for long periods overall. **Negatives:** * Rather annoying how much resources the client consumes even on low-spec. For reference, I have a gaming desktop and I can't run anything else graphically (for instance youtube) while using the client (queuing up, champion select, searching the shop, opening loot). * Nasus in my elo feels unbeatable, as it seems that both playing as or against it doesn't matter how times the Nasus dies in lane, if he just ignores and farms he still becomes a monster late game. On the same note the BorK+Guinsou+true damage autos (Vayne and Master Yi) feels like you can't do anything to build against it. The lack of counterplay at my elo for these three is rather annoying and I would be really happy to see changes addressing these.
: @RiotAugust Those "useless" Boards are a part of the community that puts bread on your table.
While I see your point on the whole speaking for riot thing, and the player communication being trash thing, it's a known fact that as a whole Riot thinks the boards is a toxic place and that none to very few of them actually enjoy talking here. It's not new to us and it certainly isn't news. This is just a specific high-up that people are concentrating all their frustration over the years about this and the game on. Quite frankly it's a witch hunt. Not that I really blame that either, it's natural to get upset when people insult you, it would be unnatural not to say something about it. But let's just remember this is nothing new, and while I hate to admit it, Rioters have a point about the boards, they have for a long time now, and we've only gotten worse over the last year especially. I do however want to say I hold them fairly responsible in this seeing as dropping interactions during development of such ill-will and toxicity is one of the worst things you can do. It's not like insulting the community further will help, in fact the Rioters that have reached out here with kindness have been well-received.
Riot Jag (NA)
: Teemo changes temporarily on PBE for early feedback
Having now played it (although only once so far), it feels like he lost a lot of damage early. And the Q into enhanced passive damage feels a bit clunky. The clunkiness might just be re-learning though, since it used to be auto-Q-auto, leaving a large unused gap for the enhanced damage. E also feels a bit weird given the large delay for both stealth and AS. Also there's a bug where monsters don't go back to regular animation after blind wears off. They just stand still broken until you get them to walk a bit (still damage correctly during this).
Riot Jag (NA)
: Teemo changes temporarily on PBE for early feedback
This is amazing. Most of these are changes I've been feeling would be cool/hoping for for a while. For instance I always thought it would make sense to do more damage on autos if someone was blinded or shroom'ed. And I would rather have more shrooms in exchange for less damage because while it's hilarious to see someone die to it unexpectedly, it doesn't feel like I deserved it. As for the nerfs, I never really cared about any of those things much, so that's cool.

: Crit Item Explorations Part 2
Proposed changelist from live [insert his usual disclaimers here]: (conveniently placed for me and other people who want a quick summary) **Phantom dancer** 45%->30% Attack speed 30%->25% Crit chance 5%->7% movement speed [removed] Unique passive: Spectral Waltz [removed] Unique passive: Lament [added] Unique passive: Lifeline 2700->2800 gold **Rapid Firecannon** 30%->25% Crit chance 5%->7% movement speed **Statikk Shiv** 30%->25% Crit Chance 5%->7% movement speed **Runaan's Hurricane** 30%->25% Crit Chance 5%->7% movement speed **Essence Reaver** 75->60 AD 0%->25% Crit chance 20%->0% CDR 300->0 Mana [added] Unique passive: +20%CDR 1%->1.5% missing mana on hit [removed] Unique passive: After casting your ultimate, your next basic attack on-attack within 10 seconds grants ESSENCE FLARE for 6 seconds (30 second cooldown). [removed] Unique: Essence Flare 3000->3200 gold **Spear of Shojin** [added] to summoner's rift 60->70 AD 10%->20% CDR [added] Unique passive: After casting your ultimate, your next basic attack on-attack within 10 seconds grants ~~ESSENCE FLARE~~ for 6 seconds (30 second cooldown). [was on essence reaver] [added] Unique: ~~Essence Flare~~ [was on essence reaver] 2900->3000 gold **Infinity Edge** 0%->25% Crit chance [removed] Unique passive: Doubles your critical strike chance. [removed] Unique passive: When critically striking champions, converts 10% of critical strike damage to true damage. [added] Unique passive: Critical strikes deal 225% damage instead of 200% **Last Whisper** 10->20 AD 10%->20% armor penetration 1300->1450 gold -------- Here is my hot take on each of these changes: **Phantom Dancer** I didn't really buy it much before as an ADC. Now it looks like it's being gutted and placed at a higher price-point. Before it seemed like a good buy for a crit-skirmisher who likes bursting the highest damage-dealer and escaping. But now it seems like a hodge-podge item that doesn't really do anything great. Like if I wanted my third crit itemto be AS, not AD, I MIGHT buy it, but only if I was really badly behind to the point I was irrelevant. The damage trade off between it and a Essence Reaver or any other Zeal item is just too high. I think it will be a niche buy among ADCs and irrelevant to anyone else. Also the passive is really lackluster compared to other Crit items now. **Rapid Firecannon, Statikk Shiv, Runaan's Huricane** Lost crit chance for movement speed, seems like a fair trade of stats to keep it at the same price-point and should make kiting a lot more fun, yet not impossible to counter. And the fact there's now two crit-AD items makes the crit chance lowering not as painful. The only pain point I can foresee is that it might be a bit hard on ADCs as a first item, which is what the last item changes tried to fix a bit. **Essence Reaver** Item seems a bit overpriced for what it's giving in my opinion. And compared to other iterations of this item it seems incredibly dull and unsatisfying. I think it needs something else going for it as an item option other than missing mana back. Something that broadens it's appeal to champions, because mana back while usually good isn't as appealing as it used to be when you can get manaflow, bisuits, or even Presence of Mind in your runes. It just seems the way it is that people are more likely to get it for the stats rather than the passive and because of that it seems overpriced. If that is also the case it tells me the passive isn't appealing enough and should have a different one. **Spear of Shojin** Kind of disappointing that Spear of Shojin isn't coming live with it's original passives or something similar. Other than that seems like a solid item, good to have those passives seperate from the mana regain, feel like that's healthier since you don't have a cooldown refresh and a way to fuel those extra casts on one item. **Infinity Edge** Seems like a good rendition of the item. **Last Whisper** Not sure what is the point of this really. I wouldn't say it's a bad change per say but I don't think it's good either. More AD on it is good I think, makes it feel a little better to buy as a component, however I thought part of the point of the last changes was so that the penetration wasn't front loaded in the component as much so that people couldn't just sit on it happily.
droov (EUW)
: a reason for an unreasonable ban
So releasing chat logs for toxic behavior is fine on the boards, but not in a ticket?
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: January 9
As nice as it sounds, and as much as I've seen the idea floating around by Zileans (self included), I think it would feel lackluster if it was just stat buffs like in urf and nothing else. Like I feel if you allowed them to go over the level cap it would have to be by a significant amount to the point you can never actually reach or to allow for extra ability purchases which may be too much power, not sure. Basically if it's decided that they can't get ability level ups as well, then it's not really worth as far as satisfaction. Even then I feel like the satisfaction might be limited still as most games don't hit 18 if I recall. Would probably be best to go another direction.
: Honestly I would be 100% on board if Riot could focus way more on things like this vs IFS chat banning/perma banning people over "toxic" chat, which can literally be handled in seconds (mute). You honestly looked like you didn't int, BUT... They need to bring back the tribunal, more than anything, especially with replay available so we can get the bans right. I would gladly watch a 5 minute death montage of int reports and gladly put people away for good who int even 1 game. One game of someone just trolling around/running it down mid should be enough to finish that account, that is the most toxic thing you could do in the entire game imo, worse than any word you could say in chat to a bunch of anonymous no ones. Just my 2 cents.
Look at the match overview deaths and the map of death location. In the first two games he had deaths immediately after reviving. First game he had 5 deaths in 4 minutes, 2nd he had 2 before 2 minutes while trying to "invade" alone.
: You have 207 CS while going 0/7 and you're a level above the whole game? You were doing something.
Only 3 of that was minions, the rest was camps. He wasn't doing anything but farming that game.
1MRPOPO (NA)
: What Intentionally feeding looks like in 2019
Game 1: You took 10x the amount of damage you dished out with respect to champions, 7% kill participation, 207 cs but only 3 were lane minions, 3-way tie for most deaths on team. Clearly you didn't gank, participate in team fights, or push a lane, and were farming the jungle all game. It would not be unreasonable to then also assume you inted at some point as well, even were that not the case, you were certainly trolling. Actually, looking at the match overview you died 5 times in 4 minutes, it seems you inted by just running to a different lane repeatedly letting them kill you in that timespan. Depending on your actual pathing and actions in game I would also accuse you of using an afk-bot to farm exp. Conclusion 1: inter and troll, possible third-party program user. ----- Game 2: You died twice before 2 minutes and looking at the kill map, neither was from them invading you guys. Clearly inting in my opinion, you died twice in the same spot at the river outside their blue buff. Seeing as no one else then died you tried to invade alone by walking up to them twice. First blood at 1:14 and second death at about 1:45, just about the minimum time to get back there to die again. Again, no teammates to help. Clearly inting. Seems you stopped inting after that, but that intitially inting gave the enemy team a 1000 gold lead and lost your bot lane for you. Conclusion 2: Either someone pissed you off in pre-game lobby so you inted to "teach them a lesson", or no one would follow your stupid invade so you gave them another kill to spite your team. Inting. ----- Game 3: Don't see any repeated deaths; you didn't do a lot of damage, but neither did anyone else on your team; you had reasonable kill participation; you had a decent kda; you helped push lanes. From all the data I can see, nothing looks amiss, just looks like a bad game. However, based on the other two games I've looked at, that isn't necessarily the reality. It's possible that the deaths you did have were ones of non-resistance or that you would sit by and let you team die to them/weaken them to try to go in for the kill steal afterwards alone and die tragically. I can't be certain. Conclusion 3: Reasonable doubt of wrongdoing in this game. If they actually need to have 3 games to ban you, I would try to appeal this game only.

I don't care if they're fired. That's not the point. The point is they fucked up at PAX with how they handled it and they can't have the decency to at least say they're sorry or what they plan to do about it in the future. The point is that there's nothing to prevent another Rioter from lashing out like DZK so long as their PR team does nothing, and Rioters are allowed to speak for Riot on social media. Part of Riot's problem is that because Rioters _can_ speak for the company without directive to do so in their free time, stuff like what DZK said could be taken as the word of Riot. And again there's nothing to stop that from happening again. What would help would be a team that quickly responds to such things. Overall the treatment of their community is horrible. They refuse to talk to us on anything important. They can't admit half the time when they've wronged us. They use tactics to break up the community and pit them against each other by claiming we're toxic and saying they can't reply to that. It's a broken system. You can't put the burden on the employees who don't have the proper communication skills to deal with bad situations, and who might not even know all about it. You can't on top of that put it on a group of people with no designation as to who, do both of those for years, refuse to give official responses, then call us toxic when we get angry about a lack of communication and whatever issue cropped up at the time. A communication that was set up for failure from the beginning. They do all of this, and then it turns out they act the same about us in their Slack chats. That's what this is about. Communication. At it's heart, it's the reason all of our issues get so blown out of proportion.

: Guys, that's a victory and a good one at that
I wouldn't even call this a victory. What I want is Riot to talk to us, first and foremost. Them not talking to us about anything and just firing people without statements on it seems like we just bullied them into firing them. From a corporate standpoint, what he did should have broken policies, and the fact it sparked a lot of this should have him fired. So personally, I don't feel like we did bully them, if they feel that way (which Tryndamere appears to from his twitter) then I think that's a little crazy. That would mean it wouldn't have been on the table if not for us. Anyways, I never said it had to be a firing, while I did say that would be what would make me happiest, other punishments would have been satisfactory, and many others said the same. All reasonable posts I saw said that in-fact (ones that were constructive). So to insinuate we in any way bullied a decision (sure we may have bullied Riot in part) is a stretch of the truth, and shows some lack in responsibility in their decision among Riot higher-ups. ---- I digress though, this isn't a victory because there is no signs of any change in opinion on their actions from Riot. There is no comment period. There is still no PR team to handle these things. There is no comment on how much of what Rioters or ex-Rioters said is what Riot as a company also thinks. There's no victory here, at this point it's nothing more than a scapegoat. A punishment without internal change is meaningless.

I agree, just not in such a nuclear way. Would the punishment for Daniel that would make me most satisfied be firing him? Of course. But I first and foremost want a response on this, an OFFICIAL response. That's step one. If that doesn't happen there's no point in even thinking of the others. Overall, while I wouldn't say they didn't have this coming with how much anger you're giving off; I think one should be a bit more chill when trying to get someone else to do anything.

Maybe not blame the male players and instead you know punish the actual employees for their actions. And this is where I call out it that "attacking part". That may not be your intention, but it certainly feels combative rather than "here are solutions to help". Again, I don't discount your anger and frustration and much of it I agree with. That being said it kind shuts me down of wanting to talk with you about things like this if I feel attacked :(.
I think that's asking for a bit much in this situation. To me, it seems unreasonable to ask anyone to give a calm answer devoid of blame when you (or your company/ other members of your company) have wronged them. While I understand the policy for player-and-Riot communication is based on Riots doing it of their own will, with their own time; you are still representing the company as you do so. That comes with all the responsibility the entire company would have. And a company shouldn't be getting upset over their customers being upset about something the company did wrong. I personally do feel bad for you Rioters, you get so much shit trying to help the community. You do it because you recognize someone should, but because it's all optional no one else will. So it's always the nicest Rioters responding. It's just a shitty system. Riot _should_ have a team whose job it is to deal with these kind of things, but because of how things are, nice Rioters get cussed out when they're trying to help (because they're the only ones to talk to at Riot) and the community can never get communication. I would also like to say that I want Rioters to stop blaming the community over this situation. If you sit and think about the way company PR is set up at Riot and don't hold some communism levels of faith in humanity, then it's quite clear (at least in my opinion) that there was no way else things would have ended up, except like this. It may have taken longer, or shorter, but eventually we would have ended up like this. It is not the community's fault, to blame the community is to blame human nature. Riot needs to revamp how they handle PR, or it is my solemnly held opinion they will not last another 4 years. This isn't meant to be mean btw, this is just me looking at the facts available to me. P.S. (less chill here, mostly me venting on the stupidity of the situation): That comment, while certainly aggressive, is no where near bad enough to justify not responding to on that basis alone (which you avoided that pitfall, I applaud you good sir or madame). If you think that is bad, work some retail. As a person, yeah, ignore it; but right now, you represent a company, there are different levels of acceptability for each. A company is expected to reply to a concern like that somewhere, and promptly. They can't just ignore these types of concerns without hurting themselves, it's basic business knowledge, why do you think customers abuse it so much in retail stores?
