: Everyone blaming Bjergsen for TSM losses - TOXIC Community
Never liked Mithy, not sure why TSM got so excited just because they got the "pair". So? They aren't all that.
: So is honor gained by being nice to your teams or carrying?
You get honor just by playing. If you get "honored" and/or your whole teams "honors" someone, you get a little bit more. That's it. It is not as complex as everyone makes it out to be. We just don't see the progress which makes it seem more mysterious than it is.
: Unless you're high elo, ignore meta and find what works for you
Yep. People don't understand that in order for the meta to apply, people have to know how to play the champ.

: Racism in League of Legends
It's not just racism. People will hate others for anything different about them...doesn't have to be skin color or political affiliation. It can be the type of music you like. People need to learn tolerance. Maybe schools should be teaching some basic "how to not be a douchebag human" skills along with the 3 Rs. All you can do in LoL is use the mute button....which is actually quite powerful. I refused to use it for my first year of LoL (playing for just over 2 now). When I finally did (and when they added ping and emote mutes)...SO MUCH BETTER.

: "BREAKING NEWS! Tom Petty cause of death: Accidental Drug Overdose"
Except this was an unfortunate cocktail of diff scripts that he had for various ailments that he popped all at once to try to fight the pain from his broken hip (that was only a fracture when he decided to push through with his 50+ date tour...not sure what he was thinking. Prince ODd on the same type of scripts. Jacko and Heath Ledger died from similar things (taking too many scripts at the same time). Bet we find the same about Dolores O'Riordan. These aren't member of the 27 club that died from too much illegal drugs. These were established artists still making music/movies that are probably working too hard for their age, so they have to supplement their body's want to rest...with drugs for pain, sleep, etc.

If you are coming down river and we are backed up to our tower and you are going to gank on the far side of the clearing because the enemy bot is hanging back, we aren't going to be able to help. For one, we aren't gonna take a dozen minion shots as we push our way out. Even if there are no mins, it takes a few seconds to cross the clearing to join you. Similarly, if you are the teams engage... this goes for anyone... and you dash, leap, blink, etc into the fray... remember that you are putting yourself a couple seconds ahead of your team if you don't coordinate it.

: Penalties for supports who DON'T buy vision
I swear this post gets made at least once a day. VISION IS A TEAM EFFORT. How about next time, I report laners for not upgrading trinkets or even placing their yellows that they start with? Or a jg that doesn't gank my lane. Or the top laner who has 5 deaths in the first 10m? BTW, half of this issue is caused by Autofill.
: You’re so sure of yourself that you’ll answer my question then. If a foot ball team in the NFL scores 5 touch downs, and it’s past halftime, and the other team makes a comeback by scoring 2 touch downs worth 3 times the points, is that fair? If you do think it’s fair, why isn’t it used in any comptitive games or sports?

Three point line. But anyway, you are talking about points in football that directly determine the outcome. A champ getting a little extra gold for a bounty does not directly harm the enemy Nexus. If you want to compare apples to apples, I would say bounty gold is more akin to a penalty in football. One penalty prob won't hurt you. One death with a bounty on your head will help the enemy team a little, but it's not going to swing the game.
: By the existence of MMR stacking teams, shut down gold, and turret shields. Those by the vary nature of their intention makes the game not competitive.

Any game where two individuals/parties try to beat the other is competitive by definition. Just because there are some neutral factors in there doesn't change anything. Both teams are Competing.

The problem is that the people who would take the time to read the article and try to get something out of it already know it. The people that don't understand the concept of talking nice to others are going to be to narrow minded. The proof is right here in this thread. You are arguing with the exact type of person that the ban system is in place for, and you can just tell by their responses that they won't even attempt to see the logic.

: PSA about your interactions with your jungler
And when the jg does gank, it is their job to check their team mates health and mana/energy and position before just running in and giving the enemy laner a kill. edit: And if you can wait for both adc and supp to be present. So often I see my jg gank bot lane when either one or both of the laners are backed.

: I thought it was more for when you are behind after feeding all game. Someone's like "oh just that crappy ashe" and then get killed by her because of her ridiculous kite potential. The emote pops up as if to say "Was it me, the weak Ashe, that killed you". Get tilted. Also although emote's have text behind them, the emotion that the facial expression invokes is the real purpose. She looks as if she is scoffing at you. I think that is the purpose of the emote. Like the Lux emote, you could use it after a teammate heals you and it could convey "Thanks" because of the happy expression and the thumbs up. The crying Amumu could be used for when you get ganked or when you are denied a Penta. Because you only get 5 emotes I'm sure they were mean't to have more depth than the associated text. The text I think is just a way to label the emotes without having to say "The one with Lux and the thumps up with the rainbow"

I bet they thought about it and this is my guess... The amount they would have to charge to offset their very educated guesstimate at how much you will spend on the new account would prob shy a lot of people away.

: COOKIES AND CREAM IS THE BEST ICE CREAM FLAVOUR OF ALL TIME
: punishment for afk much less than flaming
I'm not saying what IS and ISN'T ok. I am telling you it is a financial decision (just like most business decisions) by Riot. If you have 100% control over something (collecting and analyzing actual black and white chat), then you are free to make decisions about it (to punish or not to punish). If you don't have control (internet connectivity), then you have to be more lenient because it is NOT always the players fault. You just proved my point with your second paragraph. Leaver Buster looks for consistent leaving BECAUSE it's not sure if every leave is an actual afk or a dc. IF we were all hard wired to Rito's servers, then a leave would definitely be a leave. No doubt. But since we are on this sketchy internet, nope.
: punishment for afk much less than flaming
Simple. Internet connectivity is not guaranteed. It's quite obvious that MOST players have connection issues at one time or another with all the lag and dcs, etc. So the Leaver system is more lenient because you can't always control your ISP. Also, not many people quit the game because they had a few games with team mates dcing (because we all know it happens and it happens to everyone). OTOH, you can ALWAYS control your mouth. And people DO quit because they were bulled, harassed, etc by a fellow player.
