: How about if somebody consistently has scores of 3/15/2 we make them go into a forced gulag of 5-10 normals games before they are able to enter ranked again? 3 out of 5 games having trash scores like 1/6/3 5/15/8 (basically KDA < 0.5 and deaths above 11) auto normals.

If you were reported and banned, would you want your records of why publicly posted with names, instances, etc? The hit to player trust far outweighs the gain of satisfying a players immediate sense of "karma". However, I'll acknowledge karma feels good sometimes.

I just like talking to players, I find it helps keep me humble and grounded (this is a personal thing btw, everyone has their own methods) Job - im an associate product manager! my name - thats a funny story XD.

I asked him if i could have the name and obviously he said no. From then on I made sure to make it to every video game we played before him and took the name for myself XD. Gruesome I know haha.

No I dont lol Color - green! specifically mint green or a cool pastel green against a white background :0 Food - I'm singaporean so I'd never say no to a good plate of Chicken Rice or Char Kuey teow Halloween - who can say no to the classic bedsheet ghost?

Yea! I'm always playing lots of games. League is certainly the only game that has stuck around for this long (I've been playing since ~ beta), but besides league I play a lot of driving sims (Forza horizon 4, F1 2019, Dirt rally, etc). I recently got done with Celeste which is a fantastic platformer, and I'm about to jump into Final Fantasy 14 with some of my teammates from work. As for mobile games, been playing Archero and Epic 7 mostly. I don't play a **ton** of mobile games since a lot of my time is spent at or around computers, so the accessibility is there for me to play on that platform :). However if a good game comes out on mobile I'd definitely pick it up :D
: Why is it that Riot Game Developers go out of their way to ignore specific champions every time? Karma is a champion that has been largely ignored for 6 years now. I’ve heard excuse after excuse and the players that once cared, leave the game and the vocal majority becomes the vocal monitory. Then we get another Ryze update or a popular or new champion gets a rework or update. You guys claim to care about all your champions and the players that main them, but there is always a reason to constantly introduce a new champion into the game that is horrible to play against or a new or popular one gets another rework. This is a legit question because you guys say you care but your work ethics says otherwise, because players are unhappy and tired of waiting for things to happen. You guys want to live in a unrealistic world where you want to only acknowledge a certain group of champions but ignore the vast majority that need work done and even horrible work you did on them rectified. Where is the Wukong update that is still being neglected?

I totally understand that it can feel like this, and I really empathize :(. One of the by-products of the way champs are designed (they are made with heavy resonance with players in mind *I think*. So for instance something like I'm a GP main isn't out of the ordinary) is that changes or lack thereof feel more like a personal attack than anything else. I can 100% promise you the teams doing balance are never like "who should we screw over today". Instead they are trying to address the overall health of the meta to make sure all players have fun and the game experiences a health amount of change. Sometimes this does involve not actually doing anything to a specific champion, **or** not touching a champion because all the ideas we have for them are just plain bad. Still, that doesn't address or reduce the amount of feel bad that comes from something like this, and I'm sorry :X

Legitimate serious question because this is a passion of mine. Knowing network effects might be a good place to start. Another way to put it is, know how one change affects champs 3 or 4 degrees removed from the point of origin. A good analogy for this is a Food Web (you know, middle school biology :P). If you change or remove one piece of a food web, it can drastically alter other portions of that network that you wouldn't have imagined (eliminate a certain type of ants, and hawks feel the effects for example). The same goes for League balance, if you change something in one area, how good are you at predicting all the other fall out effects that will come from that? This is why, often times, balance changes suggested by the community are hard to heed, not because they are wrong often times, but the short effects of a change are rarely the goal. Rather its the increase in the overall health of gameplay and meta state that are the objectives. ^ this is entirely from my observations and convos with balance designers. I've never worked on the balance team before, so I'm **definitely** missing something here

Nefas (NA)
: Related question that I’m hopeful you can help with since I just get ignored everywhere else. Can you please pass on an ask to have an option to disable all emotes, not just enemy emotes? I don’t want to have to deal with even emotes in my team since they are just a waste of screen space and continued VFX overload. Manually having to mute them all at the start of every game is such a chore.

Manually having to mute them all at the start of every game is such a chore. I can share, but I do wanna let you know that it doesn't mean the post will have action taken on it. I'm pretty far from the core dev teams on League and the decision making process that happens over there :X

That doesn't mean you're stupid, just emotional. Again totally valid response, but also probably not the most appropriate :) Same thing applies here. I truly don't understand why you bother to answer to the people here. Anything you say will be either labelled as "You the Rioter shill" and if you make ANY bit of criticism about your product, people will use that to double down on how "bad" everything is and that nothing changes, etc. Just to fit their narrative. Like maybe I am too old for some of the people here (but I don't think it is the case/explanation) but when I see that people joke about a Rioter being emotionnal and possibly fucking up on an answer... OF course they do, they are human! Does any of the morons whining here work in a company or a place where you have public relations? Sometime you can't handle the pressure or you say something that slipped through your brain before you though "There is no gain or good reason to say something like that". Of course fucking developpers working for weeks about something will DEFEND their products, of course they will be hurt when John Moron say "Wow this things is so EASY to make and it took you MONTHS, I am so glad I am a professional programmer and a genius to actually say that what you do is easy and quick". Of course they are kinda crippled when you guys, legitimitaly so, complain about the very high pricing and they are like "What do I say to this?", because they represent the company, their coworker and also what they say can snowball. But yeah, honestly Bazerka you are too nice. I would say going on Reddit, despite it being harsh too, is way less toxic than this loophole of whining/negativity without critical thinking of a board.

I appreciate the sentiment :), but lets put it another way. If you dont invest, care, grow, and love on something how do you expect it to get better? I literally grew up on these forums and this game and I want to invest in it :D. If the cost of that is getting yelled at by random internet strangers, but the gain is reaching out to players and making sure they feel heard? Than thats a cost I'm willing to pay :)

I def wasn't intending too, but rather just calling out that the OP's opinion that TFT wasn't for them was totally fair and appropriate.

: I gotta say, seeing you come on the boards and being active/replying to threads today (especially the one about Eternals) prompted me to decide to get my thoughts in order, since I knew at least for the time being the boards were being looked at so there was a chance I could be seen through the tide of very angry posts.

I really like this analysis! Thank you for your thoughts! fwiw this is the type of dialogue that initiates change, not saying change is guaranteed I'm not on the Eternals team, but well thought out arguments on things is a great way to open dialogue about something like this :D.

I'd assume (I don't know this for sure) this means it actually costs more time and money to make a skin than before, this means more care has to be taken about which skins are made since they'd be increasingly more resource and cost intensive. Again just a guess, but is pretty standard business practice IMHO Or y'all matured and are more skilled than before, and it takes more or less the same resources as before. In fact, that would be pretty worrying if Riot did NOT mature and get better at what y'all are doing...

In fact, that would be pretty worrying if Riot did NOT mature and get better at what y'all are doing... sure! you can mature and get faster / more efficient at making things. But if a low quality splash art = 30 hours of work, and a high quality splash art = 60 hours of work, no amount of maturing is gonna make that process faster. Theres always going to be **hard** costs that a business incurs to make things.

I just thought I'd slip that in since you seem to be trying to pacify players.....while your colleagues on the surface seems to show cowardice.

Riot is home to lots of people, and not everyone likes to talk to a large group of players (at least not in this format). Some people get massive anxiety or stress when thinking about posting on forums etc. Everyone communicates in their own way, this happens to be mine :), I don't expect others to do the same :D
: Clash SMS Number Already in Use??? HOW
you should also check that you have the right region selected. In the pic you took it looks you have Afghanistan selected as your region (the flag), but looks like you're on the NA server. Might need to change the country to USA?

: Games are not balanced. It's not fun
Curious if you had any thoughts around how we could design a system to account for things like how often a player communicates etc. Sounds like a lot of the factors that make up "balance" as you describe it is more around the people playing the game that you have to play with rather than the game itself?
