I found the rules and culture fine here. The only reason I started then soon after stopped contributing was that it was way, way harder than I thought it would be to create interesting content. I felt the community deserved better than I was able to deliver in the time I had available per week to devote to it. {{champion:51}}

: Who to speak to if someone is harass adding me
I'd consider putting in a support ticket. Not sure what they could do about it. You might be asked to do what Jo0o has suggested. {{champion:51}}
: one for all champ pick undesirable, fine, harassment is not
Had someone pick Alistar for us (20%) the other day. We went against Fiddles. Most of us said "oh god we're fucked". First engagements went really badly. Alistar is melee. You run in, get silenced, feared, drained. It was horrible. We kept saying how much trouble we were in. But nobody was nasty about it, and nobody gave up. We won. When you sign up for One For All matches, that's just the way the game is. You get weird matchups. https://matchhistory.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/NA1/2841393233/423744?tab=overview {{champion:51}}
: EXPOSED! Sexism at Riot!
I read the whole thing, and it seemed reported fairly to me. People she contacted who said, "I didn't see this" were quoted as saying that. Having seen this kind of sexism in several video game companies, I'm just not surprised. The current one I work at doesn't seem to have this issue so much, so I'm glad about that. {{champion:51}}

: I'm gonna add in here to agree with OP. Now I will say, toxic behaviour is more severe and impactful in league. But i find saltiness in and general team work to also be better in league. Like it does both extremes better. My theory before reading this post was cause I'm playing blind pick quick matches at like level 25 in hots while I'm mid gold most my games in league, but now I think blizz doesn't punish toxicity in the same way. You can only report during game too I think which is odd. I got people upset with me taking my support heroes solo lane, but I find some of them excel alone... Also the others immediately went 2 and 2 to the other lanes, so was I supposed to just leave a lane empty? I think the meta and objective understanding is less understood in hots than league, even at relative low levels of MMR. Because in league just getting kills is effective at pushing towards victory, as where a handful of kills in hots can be completely useless if nothing is done during the death timer.

: why dont people surrender?
I won a game that we were down 4-21. This is why I never surrender. Teams throw; the longer you play, the more chance there is that your opponents will throw. They get overconfident, lose a teamfight near the Nexus, you get Baron and win. {{champion:51}}
jnutz (NA)
: Bro, hey friend. Long time league and hots player here...when an objective in hots pops, you have usually 30 seconds before you can actually activate it. In this case, it's 100% viable and typically correct to go snag a camp (or both on your side) before it pops to pull someone from the team fight to handle your camps. That's lane pressure...take a 4v5 or lose a fort for objective. You are not wrong about objective being important, but in most cases you can even ignore the first one. :)

Also I was in a game where because of arriving late for the Tribs every time, the opposing team got 9 of them. We got 0. In principle I agree with you about keeping lane pressure while getting objs, but that's not what they were doing. They were keeping lane pressure _at the expense_ of objs. Despite me saying stuff like "Hey, we lost that trib because the opposing team got there early and set up, so they could ambush us when we arrived. Let's go to the next one early." I don't swear at my teammates. :) {{champion:51}}

: Question: Why do people believe that honor is (or should be ) a punishment shield?
Some also seem to think, "well, I was SO GOOD for 100 games, I should be allowed one fuck up." {{champion:51}}
: Comparison with HotS
Weird how a healer will go solo lane. I'm like "we need you healing us, not laning". "Then someone else needs to lane." "Well, yeah. But tell us, don't just run off." Or how many times do people stop for camps on the way to Tributes on Cursed Hollow. No, Tributes are more important than anything on that map. And they're timed so you have very little opportunity to do anything else until the curse actually hits and gives you a break. {{champion:51}}

: GIVE US OLD URF BACK!!!
Riot has statistics showing that it hurts the playerbase _on average_ to run URF. "Statistics" means many thousands of people are affected, if not tens or hundreds of thousands. There's no way they would make such a decision because of "some jealous kids". As a business, they can't keep doing it. Also, I'm sure it's not because people "can't handle the losses". It's because URF is unbalanced and frustrating to play, and without the AR part, you see the same annoying champs game after game. {{champion:51}}
: GIVE US OLD URF BACK!!!
Won't happen. Short version: when they ran URF, lots of people stopped playing LoL. https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/en-us/2017/12/ask-riot-urf/ {{champion:51}}

Smart move They didn't totally destroy it. They kept it in the best way they could think of. One that allows people to play URF while minimizing the "quit after playing URF" effect. {{champion:51}}
: "ARURF" random, so why am I seeing the same champion EVERY single game without exception ?
Do they allow champs you don't own? If not, then you have people with ARAM accounts that only have champs unlocked that they like to play in random modes. {{champion:51}}
: I'm just 6 games into urf and I'm already done with this shit.
URF is so broken, nobody should take it seriously. But they do, and Riot found after running URF that more people quit the game than usual. Hence ARURF. {{champion:51}}

If you want snowbally, try DotA 2, where the equivalent of inhibitors never respawn once they're gone, and where you lose gold if you die.
