Well Said. I spent 6 hours one night copying clips of a player that did the same thing as my current ticket (Running down mid 27 times in a 10 minute window) They said they would handle it. That player also added me as a friend and played every night for two months after until I said fuck it and just deleted them off my list. No chat restrictions or anything as far as I could tell. Also..as a High Functioning Autistic.. I COMPLETELY AGREE.. There should be no reason at all that players can use that word as an insult and get away with it. I understand there are legitimate uses of the word Autistic.. but it doesn't ever come up in League except as an insult. I'll often reply to those people that I DO have autism, and that it isn't cool... sometimes it makes them feel like shit and they straighten up... often times they just go HAM and dig into you deeper.

Its unfortunately the truth of being neuro divergent. I have autism, ADHD, dysgraphia, and mild auditory dyslexia. Its hard when people say "wow, you're so autistic" when I am struggling. It hurts when I think, "am I just bad? Or is it really just because I'm autistic?" I usually just tell them I am autistic, thanks for asking, and leave it at that. No point in arguing about something I can't control.

If there was a group of people bullying you, would you want to hang out with them? No. You'd avoid them. Just because someone left the game because of its toxic community doesn't mean they are softies crying for mommy or thinking about suicide. They are smart people avoiding unnecessary drama. Not everyone enjoys the game _enough_ to stick with its toxicity. Why is that hard to understand?

I checked to see if this was in Memes at first, but for the most part it makes sense. The average player will be receptive and most want a leader, not to be the leader. But you'll have to be ready for the other "alphas " that may be in your team. They may feel patronized and want to lead themselves, lol.

: Please start perma banning people who afk in games
This is all fine and dandy.... except that accidents, emergencies, and parents exist. I am responsible for the care of a special needs sister. She's an adult with the mentality of a four year old. She needs special care, and while she's normally fine sitting by herself and playing with her beads, sometimes she encounters an emergency or starts a fuss. Her needs are more important then a video game, and I don't think I should be permabanned for one AFK in 30 games. Again, while 12 or 13 year olds probably will make more stupid timing mistakes and often be called away for a chore, its different for older, more responsible teens. Why would you ban someone who has a pretty good track record for the one time they forgot to take the trash out first?

: If you ever go to Riot HQ, its already huge, with many, many people on their art teams. And no, they don't "train new teams". It's a matter of hiring people who already know how to produce concept art, and polished splash screens, who can animate the said splash screens, who already know how to produce VFX, who can create 3D characters with good topo and textures, and people who already know how to animate. Those specialized skills are in low supply at a high end professional capacity, and in high demand for many studios. Which is why there are so many artists who have crossover with Blizzard at Riot. Many people are also unwilling to live in SoCal, too. Because of the heavy traffic and cost of living. And you don't hire amateurs, and train them to a high quality in-house. It takes too long, and it's too expensive to pay for useless hires for so long. Especially when so many are willing to pay to go to schools like FZD, Gnomon, Calarts etc. Please do research before spouting nonsense.
Uhhh... not everyone who do the art even go to HQ to work. I know who did the splash arts for the Battle Academia Katarina and Transcended Kayle and she doesn't live in SoCal.

: https://www.inkstonenews.com/tech/chinas-new-rules-video-games-no-blood-dead-bodies-or-mahjong/article/3007275 > After a nearly nine-month freeze on new video games, Chinese authorities on Monday began accepting **NEW **applications for publishing games in the country again – with strings attached. That's literally the first paragraph, and it says it basically won't affect League. Or at least not much, given at most it "prompts" ("regulators did prompt the popular online role-playing game World of Warcraft to turn dead bodies into gravestones in its Chinese version") the already published games to do something, but don't appear to force them to; **AND it is only for the Chinese version**, so the notion that it affects globally is just false. People want things to panic over, I guess. In the same wave of new policies, China is also imposing new rules to combat against gaming and gambling addictions (the latter of which had been illegal but has managed to exist for some time), and weirdly, a very specific ban against royal harem waifu collection games. Ignoring the last item which I'm not sure how to comment on, the two former items are extremely prevalent problems in China more so than most other countries in the world so it makes sense they want to do something about it. I like the idea, but I'd say it could've been a bit better if the solution isn't always just "ban, ban, ban!" like 85% of the time. That said, the mentioned policy introduced some time back that they turn off in-game awards for underaged players (assuming for a short period) if they play more than 5 hours a day on the same game is sort of interesting (tho, wouldn't it make sense to target 5 hours+ of playing and not just 5 hours on the SAME game?). But then again, they could do this because they tie their gaming accounts to citizenship status; I doubt it'd be nearly as effective on other nations that's not China, Korea, or others with the same system since everyone lies about their age when creating their baby's first gaming account. All in all, it's just governments doing what it thinks is best for its people. And it's not like China is the only place that regulates video games (go Appendix), countries like Australia and Germany similarly also bans or request a different edition of the game for 1 reason or the other all the time to this day (and let's not mention a shit ton of Japanese games get censored all the time when importing to west), but ofc I'm sure people only talk about China and "non-west" nations when they want to shit on "muh censorship" is _**clearly**_ not based some underlining political agenda at all (mmm hmm).. This isn't to herald China as some grace of all that's holy, but they tend to get far more shit than they actually deserve, such as this thread's blatantly disregard for fact-checking hinging on nearly misinformation and fearmongering. Appendix (**): Surprise surprise, like everything, certain level of regulation has to be applied to products sold within a country ground; and that "certain level" varies between nations as they see fit. Video games and all published creative works isn't somehow an uncharted territory and exempted from all forms of regulation. We can argue all we want about how much is too much, but to argue or imply that ANY is too much is just dumb. ......... This post would probably be ignored, as most people continue to huddle and jerk each other off with nonsense they pulled out of their ass without any shred of research whatsoever. But I'm just sick of people knee-jerking all over the place.

I think we should have all champions unlocked for ARAM, that'd fix the issues of ARAM accounts AND it'd make the game mode truly random. I think it would be more fun too.

: If you have some friends online that are willing to help I'd make a custom game and practice different plays and situations with real people rather than A.I. because the reactions are different. As far as everything else it's all kinda just practice ^^". I'm usually support or Mid champs but I guess for support I'd just focus on chaining your CC with your team's CC in order for them to get kills and just stay back. If your ADC or someone ints don't follow them cause you'll just get collapsed and die. When warding try to ward pathways that seem like they'd be used a lot or at choke points that champs basically have to cross through. Look at your map at least once every 3-5 sec or more so you can keep track of what's happening. at the very least you can ping plays and warnings to your team. As far as deciding when to go in, that is completely dependent on your team, the enemy team, and whom everyone is playing. I'd suggest that you DON"T go in with the mindset of "well if I die I should at least do X thing". Only about 1% of plays are worth your death and even those are questionable. Think of it this way. Why give the enemy more money? That should be avoided at all cost. The only time that your death in a game is worth is if you are 1v4ing the enemy team and either Killing half or more of them or stalling while the rest of your team is getting Baron/Shelly/Infernal Drake/Elder Drake/2 or more towers. Anything less than that and all you're doing is giving the enemy a chance to turn the match through item spikes and stealing objectives. It's better to try to obtain a lead of some kind and carry that lead to as many lanes as possible in order to give your team mates a lead. After the 15 min mark even as a support lane phase is done or LONG done depending on how far you are so roaming becomes you or your teammates job in order to snowball lanes. Don't except dying as an okay thing because it's very easy to snowball (especially now) even if you aren't giving shutdown gold. An extreme example is if you're laning against a Kayle, Viegar, Caitlyn, Zed, or Nasus. If they're constantly killing you and landing hits than I guarantee after the 3+Kill they will be extremely hard or impossible to handle even if they die too cause they scale hard. Heck! after like 2 kills with zed you're basically done cause by that time if he's even just mildly okay with farming he'll already have damage pen items which makes his damage even more ridiculous. I'd say the focus should be denying and stalling if you have problems with full on fighting. Deny objectives, cs, kills, and etc. If you're a high CC champ than you need to be close enough to chain your CC and far enough that you don't get CCed too much or poked out. If you're Tanky than you need to initiate fights or block skill shots so you're focused and not your squishes. If you're the ADC than you need to stay back and just peel from far off if you can or dive in and out if you're melee avoiding cc and dmg when you can. If you're a Glass cannon then it's similar play as ADC but also keep a close eye on enemy movements so you can ping when the enemy is trying to collapse from the side or behind the team. The absolute best advice I can give is to choose two roles and play styles and just stick with that until you get it. Like Support and ADC bot positions or Jungle and top. then choose a couple champs that can do those positions and build them around what you're trying to accomplish in your area of the map. SO if I'm practicing support I'd first go to the item list and look at the kind of items i'd like to have in my build then I'd look up what supports can best use those items and go from there. Idk without playing a game with you but a lot of problems can be solved by Item choices in this game. A LOT of problems. Get use to looking at the enemy team's builds and counter build them. They have a lot of healing? get Mortal reminder. They have a lot of dot or quick ap abilities? Get adaptive helm. You can even create your own item list so when you go into games you'll have a list of just the items you want to build. The GENERAL rule of thumb is, your first three items (not including boots) should be your core "must have" items for what you want and the last three (boots are in this category) are items specific to the situation of the game. It's really hard to address one problem's solution without diving into a whole nother ball of wax of issues because so much is reliant on each other thing in this game. You can play an absolutely perfect game mechanically but if you have inappropriate items for what's happening you probably won't do well. On the flip side if you itemize perfectly but don't have the mechanical skill to utilize those items efficiently than it also doesn't matter. Practice is gonna be your only friend I'm afraid. From your post it looks like you probably know most of this already but I can possibly help with some things if you need. I'm not the most knowledgeable person in league by far but I know some things ^^". GL
Holy shit, this is a lot for a newbie like me but it's also a lot of helpful stuff I didn't know. Do you know any guides for which items counter which? Items are a big learning curve for me, and I'm just getting used to them by looking at champion guides. But reading this post makes me think I have a lot more to learn about items, like a LOT. Mostly situationally. I think looking at the map is the only thing I'm actually okay at. I actually look at it a lot and use free camera mode to actually look around the map while I travel, especially when I'm in the jungle. But I haven't really figured out how to use pings or really use my knowledge. Like I know my teammate is in (blank) situation, but should I come help? How? It's just a big learning curve I suppose. I do feel shitty if I die because I know what a gold lead will do to the game. The problem is that I die ( a lot) even when I try my hardest not to. It's harder then just telling myself "okay, stop dying." I can't seem to fight anyone without dying. Even when I have full health and they have half, I miss an item of theirs, or don't notice their level, or underestimate 'x' ability and I die. Its frustrating and I feel like I'm working harder then others to learn, but I'm going to keep trying and not settle with either quitting the game or giving up on improvement.
: You're level 25. I've been at this since Season 3, level.... 80-something, whatever I am now. And I'm still... _pretty_ bad at the game. I get the frustration, but... Well, I won't say "try not to worry about it", but I _will_ say that you should do your best to play around it. Think of it this way: Every sports team has players that aren't as good as others, but they're still on the team. They still have a role to play, and they still find ways to enjoy what they love. I'll tell you what works best for me, and mind it's not foolproof, it's just what's worked best: I main support. I focus not on having amazing games or making amazing plays, but on facilitating the success of my teammates. Doing all I can to make _them_ look good. That style of play, especially if I'm on a tank, lends itself well to someone like me who isn't very good at the game. "If I'm gonna die", I tell myself, "I may as well die protecting a teammate". If I can get someone out of a sure death with my own, or if I can even just kill an extra 12 seconds of the enemy's time making them chase me before they finish me off, I count that as a good play and it pleases me. **The number one tip** I can provide that I don't follow near enough myself, in terms of general play, is **withdraw often**. Just consciously think as soon as things aren't going the way you imagined they would, "I'm gonna swing back." Even just a little. Just keep them at the edge of your longest spell's range if you want to stay involved. Swerving in and out of fights in this way has been one of _the_ big constants in game where I've done well. It's usually when I neglect to do this that I have particularly bad games. **As for the toxicity,** unfortunately, there's little you can do about that. I remember when I first got called out for feeding. I was playing Warwick for the first time, back in season 2 or 3. I felt HORRIBLE. I didn't even know what feeding was! And here I was getting trashed by my entire team, everyone deciding they'd report me. I was terrified I'd get banned. Good news is, I didn't. Riot has ways of knowing if you're TRYING to die, most of the time. If you're worried about it? Don't be afraid to just mute EVERYONE right at the start! I do it often. I snicker to myself, telling myself I have "perfect teammates" who never chew me out when I make a mistake. You'd be surprised at how much it can do for your focus to just not have teammates blabbing onscreen about how bad you're doing. Make sure you mute the pings too. Pings are useful, yes, but often, "?" pings are spammed to make a teammate feel bad about himself and I tend to mute those too when I just want to put all that crap aside and focus on playing the game and enjoying myself. Don't feel bad about... feeling bad about... being bad. That's a mouthful. Anyway, it's KIND of a good thing! It means you've found a game you really enjoy, flaws and all. But at the same time, do your best to not let it get you down. Trust me, I know _exactly_ how you're feeling. I can say from experience that if you can take a breather, adjust your angle, and look past those feelings of inadequacy, you can still enjoy things you're not real good at. And if you keep enjoying those things, you're gonna get better over time. You might end up with Diamond skills or you might not, but you're definitely going to improve just by repetition. Hang in there, brother. Anything worth doing is worth struggling through some downswings for.

Anything worth doing is worth struggling through some downswings for. Thanks for the advice - so far jungle has been my favorite role. I've tried supp and didn't like it but that's probably because I've had ADCs that whined, roasted, and reported me on a bot game. So far I've not had a good experience with supp. If I found a duo partner who was willing to teach me and deal with my badness, that'd be nice. I honestly get sick to my stomach when someone says they are reporting me. The problem is that I do have twitchy fingers, excited or not. They just twitch, and sometimes it hits the button. I've been reporting two different games on ARAM when someone saw me fire my R randomly. -_- it irritates me when I do it but I don't really want to be reported for that.... (EDIT: I realize you weren't the person who mentioned that in their post,sorry!) What's the perfect balance of withdrawing and still engaging the enemy and contributing to my team? I know I've done it too far either way, but I try not to.

: Then you find out that it's a %%%%%% and that it's really a guy. People who don't think there are differnces between men and women in multiple ways are just delusional. Gender dysphoria is litterally classified under the same mental disorders as anorexia. Where people "feel fat" and want to get skinner. We don't take the anorexic person and try and make them skinner to make them feel comfortable there are ways to help them with there mental disorder. The same thing is true for the majority of those who suffer from gender dysporia. Even without any specific treatment to help the mental disorder about 90%+ of male and female dysphoria goes away by itself if people don't give them hormone suppresors and many people who get this treatment later regret it. You can even find people who didn't regret it until they were like 60 then they realized what they lost and then heavily regret it. It isn't loving to give those with gender dysphoria "acceptance" meaning primarily to ignore all the drawbacks and encourage them to go through with it even though we know they will probably regret it later on at some point in there life whether a year later or decades later. But it's loving to get them to an actual doctor who tries to treat the underlying mental problems that cause this. This is the same treatment people get when they feel like there arm doesn't belong to them and want it cut off. We don't go along with that and cut it off we treat the underlying mental problems of the person so that they feel comfortable with there body (arm). Now im not saying that we should bash transgender people but we definetly shouldn't encourage it and even frown on it not out of hatred but because it's the best thing for the people who do suffer to be given right treatment and not be blinded by people who try and say everything will be fixed if they get certain surgeries or hormone suppresors which have permanent affects. Most gender dysporia comes from several things - a temporary confusion from puberty which goes away after puberty is done if they aren't given hormone suppressors. - isolation or abuse/disconnect from parents - if there mother has a mental disorder or two the odds of a child suffering from gender dysporia increases massively.

Meh, most of this only somewhat true. I don't think everyone should be encouraged or discouraged to transition. It individual. Personally I don't regret my treatments but for others its different. I totally agree that this current trend of younger people identifying as trans needs to be stopped though.

They are savagely competitive at times. I was saying the motivation and reaction is different, not less. Hard to explain what I mean unless you've been there, I guess.

Well actually it's heavily suggested that this is because marketing and it has absoluterly nothing to do with hormones. There are just less girls encouraged to play video games and even fewer encouraged to go pro. There are some, just in fighting games, and they're pretty damn good. Also just letting you know, trans people take the hormones of the opposite gender during their transition, and some take the hormones just in general, so like no actual sex change done. So yeah what you said didn't really make any sense... Like I don't know why you didn't think of this considering you're trans yourself and you took the hormones of men. There are multiple studies saying female hormones make you more compettive and there's the same for male hormones. In the end, what we know is true and there's no debate about is that gaming and the competitve scene has been heavily marketed towards boys (until recently where as more girls start to play competitive games there's more marketing towards girls). There's a reason mostly girls played games like animal crossing/ baby games/ nintendogs, it was heavily marketed towards them. Comp games like CoD have been heavily marketed towards boys since day 1.

First off, hormones do not change the sex of a person, but they most definitely change how you feel and react to certain situations. Anyone in gender sciences will tell you the effects hormones have upon the brain. As a trans person I can tell you, and as many trans people will tell you, they thought and reacted differently to things upon starting hormonal treatments. I treat videos games differently, reading differently, my dreams are completely different, and even how intercourse feels is different because of physical and mental changes that occur when you take testosterone, changes I will not get into. Look them up if you'd like. So no, I'm not wrong about how it feels different, and how it feels different to others. If you look at transgender boards you will see other stories like mine. As for gender marketing, it doesn't just come from nowhere. There are mental differences between males and females, period. Some caused by physical differences, some hormonal, some for unknown reasons. In general, boys like some things more then girls, and vise versa. Trust me, I've been on both sides. I know this. Games can be marketed equally to both genders, and most guys will still play certain games over girls, and via versa. There are obviously exceptions, a lot even, but there will still be a difference in the playerbase. Playerbases don't need to be equal. We don't need 50% males and 50% females on every game. Girls and boys ARE equal, but that doesn't mean they aren't different. Anyone who thinks males and females are the same, like the same stuff, and can do the same stuff equally, is blinding themselves to the real world.
: "There is no females in Esports" - SC2 Disagrees.
Biological girls just don't have the same reaction or motivation towards gaming. It has something to do with hormonal stuff, I'm sure. As a transgender guy (female to male), I wasn't nearly as competitive or motivated and felt differently about games until I started hormone therapy. I still loved playing games but it wasn't the same as it is now. Also, I think that Scarlett is biologically male (Male to female).
: you don't know me and that's probably why most people flame they see their teammates doing a lot of mistakes and they wont just stop derping like ever
Exactly. They dont stop being bad because you flamed them.
: Why i have the feel what this game mode will happens after Nocturne rework?
What Nocturne rework? As a noc main, now I'm worried. Lol. Hope itll be a good rework.
: you flame your teammates because you know they will never do better*
Except.... that doesn't happen. Like ever. Not in one game.
: kayle looks fine to me, not sure why so many folks are arm-chair designers about this rework. IMO; Kai'sa is WAAAAAAY worse designed. kayle looks cool to me, like an awesome template for a D&D angel.

Same. I love the look. The sword and wings look so much better. I'd like to have seen a little bit more armor but it's still an improvement, imo.
: In your opinion, what are the unhealthiest champs, mechanics, strategies in the game?
{{champion:142}} is pure cancer, and as someone who had cancer, this isn't to be taken lightly

He's on free rotation, m8s

: Yeah this seems like a good post, but have absolutely no idea what to comment.
I almost think maybe the lack of comments is a good thing, lol. This forum focuses on correcting posts rather then adding more to them so maybe that's why there aren't any replies. I'd like to think it's a decent post haha.

Rioter Comments
: Willing to listen? Then you proceed to type a novel. Good junlgers often do ignore winnable lanes. I have lost lane hard with karthus at top, only to end up carrying the team. Despite not getting help when I asked for it, after pointing out im being tower dove and the enemy is always pushed up to my lane. I basically didn't read your post. If you can't be pithy, don't comment, and spare me your pseudo altruism, like you really want to help me...instead of calling what it really is, you trying to show that you are a better player and person than me. Ego, again.

: Really bad homophobic comments
Y'all need to chill out. It's okay for this guy to feel offended about what someone says. You can be offended and not be "overly sensitive". It doesn't matter if it's online or not, hateful words still come from a living human being somewhere who hates your guts. It doesn't even sound like OP is whining or taking it to heart. All he's doing is pointing out an issue that you guys shouldn't be defending.

I only play ranked tho, maybe other modes are different? No, I pretty much see the same thing in Normal. Everyone, even the enemy team, are kind and supportive, even when I'm running 5/10 or something like that. I say I'm sorry and they all say "no its fine", or even back me up and help me not die. I see a lot of complaining but have seen nothing to complain about. I only had one instance that felt bad because someone whined that I hadn't """ganked""" my two ambushers and instead retreated (didn't even die). Lol.
: i wish more people would promote better play rather than positive play.
Why not both? They aren't exclusive of each other. The time wasted flaming could have been used to win the game.
: "People shouldn't get banned for flaming, we shouldn't have to succumb to the bubble wrap society"
"I hate teammates! I hate this game! I should be able to flame, you millennial snowflake!" **Then don't play the fucking game? Twits.** I literally don't understand why people play a game where teamwork is the _entire premise_ if they can't stand to live and die by their teammates. Flaming your teammates _never helps_. Seriously. They won't improve into masters in the middle of a fucking match because you yelled at them. Yes, they may improve using the fuel of hate you've sent them, but then that match is over and it clearly doesn't affect you anymore. All flaming does is waste YOUR time, that is apparently _oh so_ important to you. All that time you spend screaming was time not spent killing enemies or turrets or dragons or etc. Or actually _helping your fucking team_. _Flamers_ are the babies. Jeez.
: Tired of Pasty, White Champions That Have Been Coming Out. Riot Please make a more diverse Champions
I'm white and I'd still like more diverse design. Because of racism or politics? Not at all! I just like the look of other races and cultures and find them interesting, and I always like an interesting character. It's not needed though, I wouldn't complain either way. Although I main Nocturne so I can't really speak. He's not even human.
: Low winrate
5 loses out of your last 15 games isn't that bad.
