: I can't evne follow the reasoning behind things riot is doing these days.
No one can. Why do you think they spend so much time trying to explain the changes in each of the patch notes, even though their explanations make no fucking sense.
: its not like the old rune system was actually diverse. most people ran the same rune page on the same types of champions. there were a lot of different runes, of which most of them were practically never used. yellow runes were basically flat armor for everyone, red runes were either flat armor pen or ad, blues were either mr, cdr, or ap. the only thing that was slightly variable was quints. the stat shards arent much different compared to that. we would just need more of them. like a 2% movement speed stat shard for example in the second row. maybe making stat shards in general more flexible. for example allowing us to just chose health for all 3 slots.

Actually it was. Just because you did nothing but look up shit guides for runes, doesn't mean everyone did the same as you.
: not being able to dodge in promos is cancerous.
Riot has mentioned before that the reason they don't let you dodge for free is because people will abuse it. Given what Riot has been doing for the past few years, I'm inclined to say that this reason is a load of shit and they just say it so they don't have to figure out a solution.
: TFT won't be as fun as NB if it keeps like this
Why are you blaming Riot? All they did was jump on the bandwagon and copy autochess. Blame the guy that made autochess in the first place, because Riot just copied him. If you want to blame Riot, blame them for being lazy and unoriginal.
: Can we get back too Reducing Damage
Riot doesn't think it's a problem, so it's unlikely they'll do anything about it. It's rather annoying because they don't play their own game.
: Can't stop losing arams
Riot uses a matchmaking system that enforces a set winrate close to 50%. If you stray too much beyond that in either direction, you'll start streaking. With wins or losses. So at some point, you'll be bombarded with wins. Kind of ruins the fun when you realize that the game was trying to sway the outcome, but hey, a system that doesn't do this is sooooo haaarrrd for Riot to make. They don't have, like, any money at all either, so obviously it's just asking waaaaay too much from them.
hoganftw (NA)
: If Riot can't balance TFT I don't see how they can balance League.
There is years of evidence that already tells us they can't balance League. Why would TFT be any different or vice versa?
: Wtf is this Renekton buff
What if this is the balance team's cry for help? "Help us! We don't know what we're doing, but we're forced to do this job because of contracts! We'll make the dumbest changes imaginable, so maybe the player base will realize that we need rescuing because we're awful at this job!"
: Small Indie Company
Don't bully Riot! They're a small indie company! You'll make them cry! :( We have to show them _**LOVE**_ and you can do this by bypassing the store altogether and just mailing them money to show your _**LOVE**_! We can ignore that billion+ dollars in revenue thing, because it's inconvenient to bring it up. Just give them more money because they need it!

Oh yeaaahhh. Suuuuuure. It's not like they've released patches before. It's not like they've had patches in the past that damn near destroyed the game. God forbid they learn from they mistakes or some shit, right? That would be soooooo haaaaaard.

huhndog (NA)
: Taliyah or Diana mid
One is interesting and rewards skill, the other is braindead and designed for CoD players. Taliyah is a mage that looks for opportunities and openings in her enemies, poking them down until she sees the right moment. All her abilities are skillshots and designed to reward their proper use. She can control enemy movement with her abilities and split the opposing team up. Even if she falls behind, her utility can still impact teamfights with clever positioning and appropriate use of her ulti and W. Diana goes in and either kills or dies to her enemy because she has an engage but no escapes. When she falls behind, she runs around in circles behind your team for the rest of the game. She is a worse version of Fizz. Take a guess as to which is which.

History repeats itself. Akali got changes and was broken. Then Riot nerfs her into oblivion in order to "fix" it. This has happened for literal years. Hardly surprising at this point, just sad and embarrassing on their part. Mostly because they're getting paid to be bad at their jobs.

No they can't, because they're awful at it and don't know how. The people that made League good in the first place aren't working on it anymore.

No one gives a shit about win rates. They care about whether or not the game is actually fun. Argument is still dogshit.

: No more execution ults
But...but..but..they look cool! And all 12 year olds love that! Listen Riot, here's a free tip and I won't even charge you the ridiculous price of a skin for it. The more of something you put into a game, the less unique and special it becomes. This applies to everything, not just executes. Dashes too (hint, hint). Yeah, I get that coming up with new ideas is hard. That's why you get paid for it. Stop rehashing things.

There are other elements in TFT that can mitigate the effects of RNG. It's a question of how much it effects the outcome of the game.

: Why isn't the design team being held responsible for this game's state?
Because the only people they really need to answer to is tencent. And they don't care.
: What do divers have no scaling into mid-late game?
Because overall damage is too high and only gets higher as the game goes on. That's it.
: Game is now more than ever about playing broken champs to win.
I'm sure some moron is going to come here and say it, so I'll do it for them in a very condescending way, so we don't have to listen to their dumb opinion. "DURR PROS DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BROKEN CHAMPIONS AND THEY'RE THE ONLY ONES WHO MATTER WHEN IT COMES TO BALANCING. GIT GUD KID. IF PROS DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM, YOU SHOULDN'T EITHER." or "HURR DID YOU SEE "insert champion" AND THEIR WINRATE? IT'S NOT EVEN THAT HIGH.
