ROFL I can't believe Riot did this
: Not saying they should lower the value of BE in capsules im saying that low level champ shards are worthless and them disenchanting for the low amount of 90be is insulting for the time it takes to get them. Have you ever added up how many 450be champ shard disenchants it will take to get 1 6300be champ? 70! 70 {{champion:11}}'s will get you 1 {{champion:157}} {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}
This new system is ... just so tragic and despressing
: I'm sorry that your League experience hasn't been as enjoyable this year as past ones. I sympathize with some of the points you bring up and I just wanted to give some of my perspective as an individual who works on the Live Gameplay team. First, I think there's a tendency for some players to think that our balance approach is directed at creating a game state that generates the most LC$$$. This is simply false. As a person who's worked on changes for the game over the past ~2 years, I've never once been asked to consider eSports revenue as a factor in my design decision making. If this was truly our goal, I'm sure you'd be hearing a lot more "ha-sa-ki" in the pro games you are watching. As a designer, I value the pro-game as an expression of what optimized behavior looks like. Having an eSports scene illuminates what is powerful and what is weak to every player and helps designers understand what systems need to be re-balanced in order to achieve more variety in League's gameplay. This is both good and bad because even though it helps live players discover new strategies, it also accelerates the solving of the meta-game when something is over-tuned or lacks counter-play. Ideally, being informed by pro-play allows us to make changes that improve the holistic experience for all players over time. But balancing our timing with what's healthy for pro play has historically been very challenging. This year we tried to be more accommodating to the pro players with the degree and timing of our changes nearing Worlds. I personally feel like this was a correct decision, but it also meant we took on different risks than previous years which have manifested different costs. I also want to highlight that some opinions about the game aren't uniform at Riot. Designers argue and discuss about what the game needs every day but efforts to make change need to be balanced with features that the design team is already aligned on delivering. For example, I personally think League's pacing should be re-examined and that Duskblade should probably be re-shaped, but it's unlikely that I could work on those changes properly without seeing what the game looks like after Runes Reforged shakes things up. To close, I realize this post isn't very specific about particular solutions we might have in mind with the pain points you brought up, but we are most definitely examining the game with similar lenses. I'm sure all of the devs on League are striving to do better in this new season as well and I hope we can earn back your trust with the efforts you'll see in the coming months and new year.

: Ranked favors people who research their teammates before a match begins and dodge accordingly
There was even a program for specifically giving you stats on your lobby team, it would give lose streaks/best role winrate and all sorts of stuff, idk if its still around because it was as old as the lolreplay thing and the client + lobby codes have changed
: {{champion:75}} needs a full rework. No point in messing with one toxic spell when his entire gamplay design is the problem.
literally had a nasus vs illaoi matchup in my game and i told nasus i'd see him in 25 minutes. He even told us not to fight over dragon and stuff because hes just afk stacking on tentacles up there

: Sooooo....no skin for Shen, but Yi Gets Two Skins in One Year?
That janna skin is going to basically print money for them though
: This teaser was only shown in China though. Because it's a China focused set of skins. Not to mention this teaser was ***just*** an image while legendary skin teasers almost always have more to them _(and aren't limited to China)_. Kind of baited yourself on this one really.
I was also wondering if this type of misleading-mystery-trickedya-teaser is more common and more popular in China, I mean I just feel like they wouldn't have ever marketed this to us like that and we don't know who exactly called the marketing shots on the artwork either
: Riot Loading Border Shenanigans!
Also btw they said (for star guardians) "the icon is tied to the border- even if it's not equipped. The only way to remove the border would be to remove the icon." {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}} I mean im buying some bundles anyway because they look so cool and I wanna support Riot BUT.... idk about this sale... **sketchy** is the keyword i'd use I feel like we are literally one step away from the bundles not even having skins but instead special cash rng boxes that give us special loot that we combine with special rewards from purchased missions...
: Im trying to get the quests done through solo. Finding a random team that can get an A all the way through feels like pure rng.
Yea, random team with random skill levels.... But 2 out of 4 victories for me were A/A+ for me and the other two were B/B+ so I feel like it has alot to do with the team comp making it much easier and also me playing well. When I do bad and die and I see other ppl try to save me and die I feel like its all my fault. Same deal with me getting hit alot, I need those soraka heals on the rest of the team so that they arent dying 24/7. Like if we have too many people with bad dodge reflex, then me getting hit too much isnt really helping the situation. But I always think of what I can do better tbh
: i noticed that dangerous game is a really good mastery in that mode, since the monsters all count as champions (except for the small voidlings). means you get a lot of healing out of it. especially useful on soraka, since youre going to be below 50% health a lot of the time, and get a lot of assists of those heals.
Good point, dangerous game was probably a ton of free hp! I think I had bandit on or something and I was pretty much forced into getting a warmog when I played soraka

Cait is just a cupcake dropping gimmick right now and then they nerfed the damage on those early too so shes got literally nothing right now early mid or late except 650 range. Problem with picking her just for a 650 range right click is that she no longer has her old base .668 atk speed from release, which means she doesnt scale very well with atk speed items (bonus %AS works off champ base to determine the amount given, this is why when a high base like Vayne buys a PD her attk speed increase is so tremendous).

About the cupcake thing, they reworked kog and cait in the same patch and i actually wanted them to revert both
: It wasn't just because of hurricane nerfs that she got bad though, she got a number of nerfs aftewards too that slowly pushed her to the bottom- Think the worst ones were to her attackspeed growth?
Yea the attackspeed nerf is when I slowly started saying goodbye to cait.... she already had garbage base attackspeed after that was nerfed a very long time ago and now her attk speed per level is nearing the level of tristana but without ANY atk speed steroids (Tristana's 1.5% is close because of Tristana having a high base atk speed)..

: I'm happy to talk about what else we could do to make veterans feel better (I personally think we should do something unique for vets besides these rewards and the emotes—just not more BE) but in order for us to have that conversation we have to at least be agreed on the basic facts, right?
I have an interesting idea/solution for you here, and while I'm at it I'm going to go ahead and state my super unpopular opinion. I'm ready for the downvotes. But let me tell you about me first, I've been playing this game since 7/19/2011...... My oldest account of course reached the point of having all 20 rune pages, every single champion, and almost every rune. I started to collect every Tier 3 rune but I stopped short because I thought burning ip on name changes every week or so was more fun than some edge-case mana runes or a pile of 50k+ip like my friends had and they mostly started using ip just as a high score. I eventually quit the game due to several reasons for a long stretch of time, occasionally logging in to boringly stomp my way to gold rank just in case the victorious skin was for a champ I actually played/liked. Here is the part where ppl will hate me, **I loved the grind and I dont care what % refund I get tbh. **The feel of unlocking stuff was so satisfying! I don't even play on that old account anymore mainly because I did alot of rank and it made me salty/bitter. I don't want ppl to research me and ask why I would hit plat 2 promos and then give up on getting diamond or why I would have absurd winrates on champs used and literally stop playing at gold5, for years. God forbid someone I'm matched with looks up I played 1,000+ games in a single season with Nidalee, and thinks im good at jungle Nidalee if i autofill into jungle right now. I have played Nidalee maybe 7 times in the last 3 years, and I've always sucked at jungling. I'm an ADC player now and when I switched to ADC I made several new accounts and I went through the glorious grind. My mechanics were poop (still are though) and I had to start with Ashe/Sivir each time until I got ones I was interested in like Vayne/Jinx and then by the time I got to level 30 and had my full rune page set I felt like I EARNED it and I learned my role and the impact of each rune setup and got a ton of experience with Vayne/Jinx. I don't have any sort of self entitlement, or rank status obsession, or think having played so long makes me more important than the new person coming. Being an old player I can give you a suggestion/solution on what you can do. There are things I used to really REALLY want but couldn't get and there are things I have that I just didn't want (ie. I had support remove Victorious Morgana from my account). I think there are things, OLD things, that some of us missed or much later on started to want. SO I suggest, an **"Artifact/Achievement/Loyalty" shop ** and its going to be fair for **everyone** (including you Riot). This shop may not be easy to code though. In this **special limited time shop** there should be various things from other seasons, going alllllllll the way back. I'm talking about Judgement Kayle, Championship Riven, Black Alistar, ALL the legacy vault skins, those AMAZING halloween wards that used to cost ip (the spooky tree was my fav and i bought 364 days worth), old icons like teambuilder icons + old event icons, and victorious skins and the victorious ward. I know, I know this sounds crazy and I have like half of this stuff already but here is how it actually works. This shop, is an exchange tbh. The credits used here should NOT be BE, it should be a selection of new currencies based on each season and time played and **previous** rank rewards earned. This is tricky to explain but here goes, there would be a season 1 currency, season 2 currency, season 3/4/5+ currencies etc, a victorious currency, and an all around "loyality" currency and etc. And things in the shop are divided by the season. Lets say I don't want my Judgement Kayle (I don't tbh) I should be able to melt this into more season 1 currency and that combined with some victorious currency that I get from melting Victorious Elise should allow me to trade to get Victorious Jarvan (not everyone knew a ranked reward would be a thing back then lets be honest there was a mass scramble to quickly get gold from the normal draft players in season 1/2). Also it should be possible to trade currency up or down a season so lets say I can turn other season currency into season 2 currency at a ~90% rate and pickup Victorious Janna (Something I used to want when I loved support but sadly gave up on). Or lets say I want Black Alistar, or Human Ryze, or Swamp Kennen and w/e, it should be possible for a limited time shop like this. The Loyalty currency should overall be separate and be based on actual time played + money spent. So lets say Judgement Kayle has a price of x season 1 currency, it also should have a secondary price of x Loyalty points as an alternative. IF you set it up correctly math-wise people should be able to pick up 1-2 skins for currency exchange, 1-2 skins with loyalty (depending on account age+stats, plus make things like swamp kennen cheaper to fill in the mid way points). A new player, that has played one previous season and made a purchase should at least be able to pick up a "Loyalty Ward/Icon" so they can get a little something too. This shop should resurface every ~5 years imo, and I think its fair to all us old people and also fair to the new people that came along more recently and also fair to all those future players who will be here after the old population is all but gone. You can also make more Judgement skins and put them exclusively in this shop. You can even put a 'refund token refill' in there. I tried to create this to be as fair as possible, to everyone, while costing you a minimal amount of money because I personally don't care about being a 'vet' and if anything I've been wanting to give away Judgement Kayle and Victorious Sivir/Elise and etc to someone who REALLY wants it because I couldn't care less about that stuff and have zero sense of entitlement tbh. Since its not possible though I've been thinking about having support close that account, permanently. But thats another topic. If you read all this then I want to say thanks!! and if not then oh well, see you on the rift.
: You know whats really sad?

my favs are -Vayne+shields(karma/lulu) -Cait+hooks(blitz/naut) -Xayah+Rakan -Kalista+Thresh(easy relic proc + teamfight) -Jinx+Nami(i quit jinx tho) -Ashe+Brand ones I don't play much, but scare me -Ezreal+Lux -Sivir+Leona -Jhin+Sona -Trist+Braum a good janna/soraka i would love to have with any adc pick but good sorakas are hard to ~~find~~ chain to the chair
: What do you call an ezreal with 3000 ms ping?
: This skin might as well be cheating vs colorbind
I couldn't see this thing sometimes either, I have effects on low so thats probably not helping.. There are alot of skins though that make certain key abilities harder to read/react to, along with sometimes having totally new cast animations to learn

: Well that's even more disappointing. What a shit fest this is gonna be.
Also btw the new rune pages wont be free, its like masteries combined with runes in one setup. You can change them in champ select though
: The more I know about rune changes, the less I'm excited for s8...
I plan to just play swtor/blade&soul again while they go through the balance cycle(s). In the end it will surely be a great improvement, like keystones/items were, but I was here when they did big sweeping changes to items long ago... Irelia was running around with "Ionic Spark" and Ezreal had a gigantic long-lasting spammable perma-slow field that did the same proc dmg as trinity SO I'll take a break while they fix the steaming hot mess, and maybe you should too

: Fuck that shit, I'm done talking at all. The stuff you can get banned for nowadays is just ridiculous.
Cylons are holding the ban hammers now lol
: Not sure if anyone has asked this yet or not, but have you had a 14-day ban recently? If so, then even a chat-restriction worthy report will get you perma banned. Which, this log would've been a chat restriction, at least 5 games if you hadn't had the 5 game chat restriction already. You're rather passive aggressive, which is fine when not used often which... it is in your log. You're constantly trying to put down Morgana and you actually were blaming her. If you had no previous restrictions, then it's possible the system made a mistake. Also, it's Monday. Give them time you get to your ticket.
ppl like that are why I quit playing support..
: Permanently banned (With Ingame log)
I'll upvote you but Riot may or may not come in here and tell us the results of them reviewing this, its interesting when they do that though. Anyways, imo, its never even worth typing this much just mute all if they are queued together and blaming you. Your last game wasn't the usual solo/duo rank, you were in flex and those ppl usually are blaming the odd person out rather than themselves
: I got a chat restriction for asking the enemy how experienced they are with their champion. literally nothing else seems more like a bullshit rng system to me.
I think its become fully automated, we already know it looks for key phrases, without context, whenever someone gets reported. anything that sounds like - "we can't win, or ff, or kys, its over" can probably trigger the system for negative/giving up
: Damn, I need to get on his level, I've still got my Q bound.

I like this idea! But I'm not sure if they will ever do it Riot Kindlejack said: > Zyra in her current state is a legendary amount of work to make a skin for, for a multitude of reasons. but this was just before the mage rework, so maybe she is easier to work with now

: _Sees IGN_ Say, your ign doesn't happen to reference SW Rebels does it?
Yes it is a SW reference. I play mostly sith in swtor and The 7th became my fav character out of ALL the new Disney ones. I wish they would expand upon her a bit... somehow. I feel like a female sith/dark user would be cool to see on-screen/in-theater. I actually would love to play the part LOL. but i cant act at all

: It sounds like it could be cool, but I'm not at all familiar with pop stars and what champions would fit such a line? Lux is an obvious choice, but?
Well to make it all "fit", i say it should be Morgana's group. And she is very jealous of her sister Kayle being in Pentakill. They have both have some interesting lore, but long story short is that Popstar Morgana would contrast Morg's supposed character the same way Pentakill Kayle contrasts Kayle's Anyways, I'd say {{champion:25}} {{champion:55}}{{champion:127}} and maybe {{champion:1}} or {{champion:69}}
