: I had this the other day too. I just ignored it, but it is definitely worth mentioning.
I actually ignored it yesterday too, assuming it'd be hot fixed or something. But then I saw it again today and was like, "yeaahh lemme just mention it." {{sticker:vlad-salute}}

: Happens under different conditions and in different forms, but happens regularly.
: Good thing I only have to get a time-penalty for this issue in a non-ranked match. No but seriously, fuck time penalties when you get a message saying: "There was an error locking in your champion. Please try again later." Then you end up waiting for something that legit looked like a problem on their end like. . . WTF!?!?
Seriously! You'd think there'd be a system for this by now...
: That happens to me sometimes too :/ Idk what it's about

: Client not letting me leave game lobby - HELP!!
OKAY so for all Rioters to know; switching over to a training queue, going through the game and then exiting once in game actually fixes this issue. At least, for me anyway. Not sure if this still needs to be addressed, but I figure better to report than to not.

: Looks like that icon is celebrating black friday a little early xD! ......Okay yea I apologize for that joke.... This is something we know about, and it sounds like the art may not have been uploaded on time. I've been told it should be added correctly either once the patch drops or at least by this Friday!
[Amazing]( thank you! :D

: Hey there! Upon purchase, it did say that it could take up to 5 days for the icon to appear - which is probably why it looks "just black". It's happening for me as well. Don't fret! It will pop up soon enough :) {{sticker:sg-kiko}}
Thanks for the reminder! Of course, free is free so I don't mind that much as long as I don't have to fix something about my client, so here's hoping! :) {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}

: There hasn't been a delay in the missions releasing, it's just we didn't have the exact dates until now. They'll be releasing on Oct 2, and it just looks like the first set was up for 2 weeks while the next ones will be weekly. Not 100% sure why this event had a little gap between the missions tbh. Porocles and I do our best to provide you guys with all of the info you need as soon as we can, but sometimes we just don't have any more information than you guys do =\
My apologies, by delay I had meant the gap between the initial release on the 21st to what next is supposed to be the 2nd of October. I had assumed they would still only release the few missions and not release everything that should be to date (assuming that they go past the 2nd, anyway). Thank you for clarifying though - I'm still hoping for some sort of official statement to let players know. I'd be happy even with a "Hey guys, we dunno when it's coming back, but it will!" On the front page, instead of having to sift through various board posts about it. That's just preference though, I'm blunt and up front and have a tendency to expect others to be as well. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}

: You haven't lost any missions, they just haven't been activated yet. I just got word earlier today that the 2nd set of missions *should* be activated on Oct 2.
Broporo, what is Riot planning to do in the event that the missions are not released by the stated date? Are they planning to give us the extra week and a half to complete these missions (not that it should be a problem for people like me who play faithfully every day anyway, but for those who do not...)? A lot of us who bought the pass are already feeling a bit scammed for our money, not to mention how many people were upset with the results from buying the dungeon pass for the arcade event strictly for the icon simply to have it changed anyway... but even aside from that people are beginning to question the missions and whether or not having these passes available to purchase gives the game a pay to play feeling. This delay in mission updates without any official statements from Riot is... disappointing, to say the least. Please tell us there will be SOMETHING extra, whether it be extra time to complete the missions or a bonus orb or even a key fragment, for those of us who bought the passes?

: The biggest problem with these missions is that they are counterproductive to mastering the strategy of the game. They force players to focus on small goals as opposed to the macro aspect of the game. Most players will pursue these missions, which means that for 6 weeks, you can't really play meaningful PvP games. The only way to avoid this if players not carrying the world icons are matched in games together by Riot (and not with those who want to complete missions). This is just fun entertainment, with some free stuff, but very far from the true League of Legends.
Quite frankly, I don't personally see this as an issue as someone who is interested in the content provided by these missions. The objectives of the missions I usually just consider the same as the secondary quests given in the game already, such as playing as Ashe vs Lissandra/Sejuani and doing the "fight for the freljord," or "The Hunt" between Khazix and Rengar. If players choose to focus on those objectives rather than learning game play (example, learning how to successfully take first tower rather than just focusing on the tower being taken,) that's a mentality of the player that just has to be unbroken and doesn't really have anything to do with the game. I have personally found a lot of these missions to be quite enjoyable and have helped my competitive side in terms of being able to achieve small objectives in order to maintain the bigger one. A lot of these missions are essential for good gameplay anyway, the biggest example out of these specifically would be maintaining drake priority and realizing when certain spawns are more essential over others. That seems pretty important to me, anyway. TLDR, I really think this issue is more of a personal player mentality issue than a game-caused issue.

: is there any riot statement on the new version? the original one is so much better....

No, unfortunately, they didn't make any statement about it, which is why I'm a little peeved. Had we been given the heads up, it would have been fine, but it feels like they took my money and then spit on it. {{sticker:sg-soraka}}
Ilivir (EUW)
: Yes, people actually spent money on the dungeon pass just to obtain the icon (I did the same) and i think it's wrong by Riot to completely change the icons background and boarder because we are technically not getting what we paid for, am i right? For example, i buy a **cheese** burger and i get a burger but without the **cheese**, so i'm not getting what i paid for. I'm not saying that the icon we got now is worth less than the original but it's still not what we paid for, we paid for [this (Original)]( not [this (Updated)](, Riot please revert it back to the original one, not the bugged version of it. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}
: I think the Updated one might be a smidge better than the original. The rainbow is more pronounced (and rainbows are everywhere on the Arcade theme), and the black border around the '+' is easier to make out. I will say, that the Original icon's poro stands out more than its Updated cousin. It looks crisper against the darker background. But not so much that it feels outright better.
I still feel like they could have given us a heads up at the very least... I just find the lack of coverage on these things, considering people pay real money for it, disgusting. Had I known they were working on changing it, I would have never wasted the money. I'm glad you enjoy it though, at least someone is getting something out of it.

: they said they would fix the icon since the circle. not remake the dang icon ;__;

I wish I could say that Riot would actually give any other answer than what I'm about to share with you, but right before they instated the new honor system I brought this up to a Riot employee who happened to be in a normal with me. I talked to her about what their hopes were in this being changed and her answer was literally simply that they cannot punish those who troll and make the game harder simply because the ratio of people who are asses are greater than those who are serious (summarizing). So basically, they are aware of the issue and are HOPING** that players will take the new honor system seriously enough to warrant bigger changes in behavior. ** of course those people don't actually care and won't care about any rewards that come from being decent unless the reward is worth more than the game itself, but ya'know, nice to hope...

: there's a new version of it on the PBE with a more colorful background and the borders disappeared, i like it now
Am I the only one who really loathes the updated version of this icon?? I legit spent 15 bucks JUST to get the original icon, the contrast was SO much better and I LOVED the rainbow border. I feel like Riot basically just spit in my face and said "thanks for the fifteen bucks, now you don't get to fully enjoy what you paid for." Actually pretty annoyed at this. Can we a least get the _option_ for black background with rainbow border/rainbow background with no border? This one just feels so much harsher on the eyes...
: No way to differentiate players who played during the old system since 10 honors should be something everyone has, and players who have around 100+ which shows people actually enjoyed playing with you instead of 10. So if you had around 400+ and never got a ribbon you are bundled up with the rest of players who have at least gotten 10.
I started playing end of S5 to current and managed to land all icons except the honorable opponent. I'm not sure what the numbers are to qualify for 10% but I definitely only had like 2-300 honors per category, so I'm really not sure what the worry is...
: > Let’s be clear - many of these assets are not permanent, and don’t meet our quality bar. We had to make a decision on many splashes to take either one or the other- even when both weren’t great They are planning on permanently replacing all outdated splash arts -- just with completely new ones that can be deployed globally with no changes (which, by the way, they already did some, with Warwick, Kennen, Fiddlesticks, and Blade Mistress Morgana all receiving a new splash)
I understand that, but even with that wording, it's not guaranteeing ALL assets are going to be temporary, and even so, the idea here is to allow the user to choose which splash they'd like to use, rather than deciding for each and every individual person. We're all different and while being mindful of the censorship of other countries is important, we should still be allowed to have the option of choosing which splashes we'd prefer. In any case, having the options available would satisfy the need for the equal global interaction as well as the consumer fan base.
: You are aware these changes are temporary
It doesn't say in any boards I have read that the changes are temporary, they have all said that they are being changed in order to improve the international player experience... It's not currently a leveled playing field in that sense because of different censorship restrictions in different regions. So unless I'm missing something and there's a link that you can provide to show that Riot isn't planning on permanently changing the skins, I am going to continue getting feedback and support for this.
