: Permabanned
Have you sent a message to the player support team? I'd imagine they'd at least give you a bit more info about why you were banned. I'm not 100% certain about what all goes into a ban, but I do know that there are some very specific things that, if verified (and yes we do verify before banning), will expedite that process. For example racial slurs, death threats, etc.

: The **whole** Season 8 proves how much this has had any sort of effect. Season 9 is going exactly the same way: Riot not caring for feedbacks **at all** (not to mention the "useless boards"). So... Yeah, nice words, but facts have been and are (and will be?) very different.

Season 9 is going exactly the same way: Riot not caring for feedbacks **at all** (not to mention the "useless boards"). > > So... Yeah, nice words, but facts have been and are (and will be?) very different. I'm interested to know of specific examples where a system was **blatantly** not in the best interest of a **majority** of the player base and feedback re; that was straight up ignored. Often times a system may negatively impact an individual, and for sure this does happen, but its done to try and increase the quality of life for a larger group of players (see: jungle plants which at first were given a **very** frosty reception and negatively impacted people who were adept at the old jungle, but over time were adopted and are now viewed positively). However, these changes are (to be frank) educated guesses and when they don't pan out I believe corrective measures have been taken (see: position ranked most recently, Leblanc revert if you go further back). That being said, I 100% know feedback isn't ignored when its is felt and shared by the larger global community. However, we have a **lot** of players and **individual** pieces of feedback may appear to be ignored. That I agree does feel horrible, especially when you are heavily invested in the game and its ecosystem. All this to say: we do, and are, listening to the community and doing our best to intake and respond to feedback (see Joe Tung's developer diaries & update VOD's). But its a lot of feedback, and often quite niche and individualized to a unique players experience. Feedback like that, when taken and put into scope of the larger **global** audience, might have catastrophic impacts and is thus carefully put away or addressed in a different method. Hope this helps

: What is your favourite thing about League?
{{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}} I always love questions like this. For me, League is a challenge for me to be better than my current self. I know I'll never be pro, but I always see my benchmark I left last year and I push to get better. Some years I dont (this season for instance), and yea thats super discouraging sometimes. However, the challenge to learn new things (meta, champs, roles, play patterns) is why I keep coming back. Thanks for asking! I'm def curious to see what are other ppls fav things
: Okay. Except this just leads to everyone blocking everyone worse than them. There is absolutely no way this doesn't end up abused.

Broadly speaking yes, I'd imagine this is the reason why blocks function the way they do. Still sucks that the OP had a re-return :(, tbh given the matchmaking pool thats a pretty rare occurrence. Sorry you had to go through that experience :X

I can comment all I want, but I wouldn't be accurate or close. I have no idea the stats or systems that team is working with. However, I do trust that team and the individuals who work on it so I'll say that. I'll also say, even if the matchmaking data was to be made public (which tbh would kinda be like the Colonel giving away his 11 herbs and spices) would it really matter that much? People (myself included) often times (and yes I'm quoting Adam Savage here) reject reality and substitute their own. The real challenge is understanding the need for personal growth and overcoming challenge which no amount of rationalizing from an external 3rd party will help with :). I'll end my semi jaded view of human kind here.

: Can We Discuss What Is Ruining Game Experience
This tries to address a really deep philosophical question: Is it the role of a game (or in the past, governments, etc) to change the behavior of the individual? Or is it up to the individual and communities they inhabit to identify their need for change and adjust themselves. To be clear, not offering any opinion either way, just highlighting a fundamental base problem that human kind has been addressing for ages :)

: So it’s conplicated... Because I understand the importance of acceptfulness and mindfulness and defeating/desensitizing to negative cognitions, I’ve come to a place in my life (thankfully largely through my education and a good social support system) where I’m comfortable with this feeling. I’m also not trying to seek praise or compliments, but saying these things out loud or even in front of a group of people helps a lot. It makes me feel like I’m not carrying around some dirty secret. So here goes... I hate the way I look. In fact, I hate everything about my appearance. I’m still a toothpick away from being obese again (I’ve actually lost close to 70 pounds in the last 3 years by diet and exercise). Though I’ve lost weight, all of it goes to my center core so I walk around looking like a pear on two popsicle sticks (I actually laugh thinking about this). I hate my smile, I hate my the sound of my voice and I hate my stupid windows peak. God, go away widows peak. But that’s okay. I accept that I’m not what I want to look like and even if I could obtain that, it wouldn’t be me - it’d just be a mask to cover up what I really am. And that’s worse. I might hate the way I look, but I don’t hate who I am. And going to those lengths starts feeling like self-hate rather than simply hating my body. Oh well, I guess I’m not doing that bad. Cool, it’s my cheat day - I’m getting soul food today. Hell yeah. And this was my inner dialogue when I got out of the shower today - or something along those lines.

This is a tricky subject, but I'll say this. The only thing that matters is that you're healthy and valuing your health. Keep in mind, this has **nothing** to do with your body image, but rather your perception of yourself and physical well being. In regards to the former (perception), you are valued. You are loved. Nothing or no one can ever take that away :). P.S. congrats on the weight loss! Thats a huge accomplishment!
: I hate being a liability or leaning on someone else, but have always been willing to allow people to lean on me even when I know they'd drag me down.

Yet... I think about this a lot as well. "I don't want to get in others way", and tbh those thoughts always preceded times where I'm at my worst or least productive.

My fav piece of advice I was given about procrastination was to do the "smallest amount of work possible to get started". For example if my goal was to go to the gym, the smallest amount of work would be to get changed. You'd be surprised how much the thinking of "well, I'm already in gym clothes, might as well go" really helps :P

: For me, the biggest two: * "I'm an impostor: I actually am terrible at the things I do professionally and for fun." * "I did a small portion of this thing that problem #1 is making difficult for me. That means I can take a break." Those two form a viscous cycle if I don't keep on top of them.

Somehow the act of actually reading what I wrote and responding to it as I would if I were giving advice helps to quiet that voice a lot.

Woof, this one hits home for me a lot. That understanding that "my interpretation of actions is just that, an **interpretation** and often times aren't reality".

Something to think about :D While I kind of appreciate hearing a response, I can't believe this is heavily upvoted. It doesn't say: we looked at this and decided it was too hard. It does say: sometimes things are hard. Like, look at this other thing we did instead! It was completely optional and just implementing one guy's off-the-cuff idea, but rather than saying "maybe let's change the idea" we put in the effort anyway. I think something that was (a) promised and (b) affects half of all players forever is a _little_ more important than the latest champ's cool concept.

It doesn’t say that because simply **I dont know**. I said it in the first sentence “I have no idea on the actual work it would entail”. I’m not trying to make excuses or be dodgy, but simply trying to share some information and similar examples of why things are often times way harder than they seem. Not as an excuse, but just as additional pieces of information. Sorry if it came across as something different. Cheers Friend :)

I have no idea on the actual work it would entail, but often its the case where something seemingly super simple actually can take hundreds if not thousands of hours to execute. One example is Sylas. His ulti seems very simple, but in the end it required refactoring (altering the structure, engineering, and code) of a MASSIVE number of champs in the game (reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJFv8eUXvyg) In the end sometimes the cons outweigh the benefits :X.

I'll leave a * here by saying the difficulty comes in proving it. People (definitely including myself) just have off days when playing League, or are distracted by life.

This is a great question! I'll admit I have no clue. I've seen much of our merch in its various stages of development, but never gotten to see the full scope of how merch gets developed. My interest in piqued
