: Bring Us Your Bugs!! Celebrating 10 Years of LoL
I put this on twitter too, but.... The store doesn't update with purchased RP immediately after making a purchase. I always have to switch to another tab (such as "Loot") and back again before I can make a purchase. It's been this way for a few years so it'll probably go on to infinity....

: They did it on puporse to force you into purchasing skins with altered dialogues 🤣 https://images.app.goo.gl/Qiuzkt9YN9kNugaLA
Joke's on them I got Project: Ashe from rerolling 3x 125 skin shards
: I hate new Ashe VO
RIP the true Freljord Queen.
Sukishoo (NA)
: They got some of these lines out of the warmother comic, so it's far from "ruining established character" as the comic was meant to expand on her as a character and show you her journey. So using things from that and incorporating them back into the game only makes sense.
So retconning based on a comic made by an artist and writer that probably have never even looked at League before this. Riiiiiight.
: she talks to fckin much tbh "praise Ornn" "praise Kindred" "Praise BRauM provided of BeEfCaKeyNesS. may he guide us to Washboard abs land" she never shuts up, and lore is great, but she's bipolar almost going from "The three sisters were a myth" to LITERALLY PRAYING TO AVOROSA AND KNOWING ya know {{champion:127}} ONE OF THE THREE SISTERS PERSONALLY like REALLY RIOT? JUST GIVE HER A VISUAL AND VO UPDATE, so SHES NOT IN A MINI SKIRT AND LET HER BE A SERIOUS QUEEN WHOSE CONCERNED ABOUT HER PEOPLES WELL BEING...... Plus she sounds emotionless almost the whole time.... BUT thats just my opinion on the thing, Didn't like the new Lee Sin voice don't really care for this new ashe update but at least they're trying
Yeah the skirt and Braum interactions really didn't make me a fan. While I'd normally appreciate the "Vs. Frejlord Allies" lines, they're way too goofy.
Jikker (NA)
: I definitely do not like it either. She's so angry and screaming all the time and for someone that is interested in mercy and a new way of life, her VO definitely seems to convey the opposite. I think it would be a lot better if the VA was told to not force the lines so hard and if there was a bit more emphasis on unity, mercy, compassion, kindness (aka the Ashe we all know).
Right? It just feels like she got completely blobbed over. Might as well do a full VGU at this point; the character is ruined.

: Are we ever going to get two-factor authentication on the client?
Been promised to us for at least 8 years and it's still nowhere in sight. Riot's "official stance" from Tryndamere himself is that "not all regions have access to easy authentication methods (cell phones, or whatever cheapy shit Blizzard practically gives away to protect their accounts) so we don't want to implement something that is only beneficial to some regions." I'd argue that you should protect those that you can in the meantime, and figure out the extra shit later.

: [TFT] Top 500 Players from the Teamfight Tactics Beta on PBE
I take it these are the 500 people that were able to login
: [TFT] Teamfight Tactics Release Timeline and Temporary Restrictions
You guys are taking too long, I no longer give a damn about TFT. I'll stick to DOTA underlords where I don't have ludicrous queues to even login.
: PBE Queue
After a certain point, I stopped caring about TFT completely. Just go play DOTA Underlords (like i am) and keep this in mind the next time Riot asks for your money. There's 0 queue and plenty of people playing; it's also in basically the same stage of construction as TFT is. It has been many years since I've heard of something so ludicrous as a 3+ hour login queue for an early access game.
Rioter Comments
: Okay so 1. The skins visually look pretty good imo, ESPECIALLY considering what the uh..current skins look like 2. These skins are on PBE, they are unfinished. And even if for SOME REASON they don't do them, he'll probably just get the kayle treatment and get them 1 patch later.
I'm still waiting for them to "finish" the skins, however they're working full-blast on TFT now so I doubt that's happening.
: It's still early on in the pre release so hopefully they'll tweak and change some particle effects before the full release They've been doing that a bit more with skins recently, skin comes out and then gets changes
Unfortunately the only way to achieve that seems to be for reddit to collectively throw a bitch-fit. Almost like Riot hopes we don't notice and they can just slip it through. The only time I ever see changes to these skins seems to be when a thread has +45800 upvotes and a majority of negative comments toward the product.   I wonder why they don't adjust the pricing on the skins if they put extra work into them? That simultaneously provides value to everyone that owns the skin, while people that don't will have to pay for the increased fidelity beyond a 500RP "redux" skin.   Oh well, Infernal is the new hotness, no pun intended. ;P

: PLEASE FIX WARWICK DEATH SOUND
Reav3 (NA)
: Champs like Fiddle, Mundo, Skarner and such are still high on our list for VGUs. I didn't say we were stopping VGUs, just doing a bit less going forward then we have been doing recently
Please don't New-nu Mundo. I play him specifically because he's a straightforward character that has a kit that allows me to focus on the game rather than playing the character. Idc what popular perception is; he's perfectly fine as he is. Udyr needs it far more, but I'm pretty sure the same thing is holding him off the list for several years now--SGU *is* his VGU and nobody has any idea how to appease the SGU owners.
Zoli Ben (EUNE)
: What is it? Big, crazy, insane and a doctor?
> he is among the highest candidates for a full VGU Yet one of the characters that needs it the least. I don't want him to get Disney-fied like what they did to Nunu. Nor does he need 3000 passives on every ability to satisfy all the kids with ADHD who STILL won't play him even after the rework. He's simple and straightforward; exactly as he should be. I liked him more when he was a brilliant scientist/doctor warped by his own experiments, rather than the mentally simple purple boi they've made his lore reflect in recent years. His most recent story was "ooh, squishy bleedy thing!" rather than any agency as the leading scientist/doctor in the field of pain. Most important above all is that he goes where he pleases. I got really mad when the recent particle update removed the blood from his cleaver making it look toxic/poisonous. I think they recently re-added it? I'm not sure, I haven't really played too much League recently.

: Update on Yesterday's Capsule Pricing Error
Oh fuck off. There should be a few courtesy capsules provided to everyone with an active account who did not exploit the issue. I basically got punished for working for the money I use on my League of Legends account. That seems fair. It's not enough that Blue Essence is a stupid concept to someone with all the characters unlocked, or that I have to wait until random times of the year for the heavens to part, revealing an "essence emporium", affording me the PRIVILEGE to purchase texture swaps for skins I've already bought as opposed to a year-round shop. Glad to know some jobless neckbeard bought thousands of the only thing that's still useful to my account across the entirety of League of Legends just because he didn't have to be at work before 9am. Especially after I just spent $20 on boxes last week.

The sad thing is when I say children, I also think of the grown [man-children](https://youtu.be/Mz1ERk3cf5Q) (oldie but a goodie) that play this game. Never grew up, constantly screeching about things that are OP, and spam pinging teammates for buying certain items.
: Not at all why he is number 1. The champion could be super boring and I could not care less. They need to have a good identity which he does not. They need to have skills that have some synergy which he does not. They need to have a design that isn't just run at me and kill me. He is so linear it hurts
100% of the people that say this have only played him top lane, and never set foot into the jungle.
: Champions That Need VGUs
You leave my Mundo out of it. They're gonna turn him into a Pixar character like Nunu if we're not careful. They're already removing the blood off his VFX. Just because people find him "boring" doesn't mean that he needs to have two paragraphs per skill with three passives and an active. Some of us play him *specifically* because he's simple and straightforward, without a bunch of extra bullshit to get in the way.
: My friends and I work full time jobs and have families.. we don't get a lot of time to play games.. When you get in a game that is an obvious loss it should take less votes to swing to a surrender.

Reixis (NA)
: The idea behind FFing at 15 is easy to understand. Think of it like this. Youre playing a match that goes 0-20 by 15 minutes. All 3 lanes are losing, your jungle is useless, and 2 people are flaming. So right off the bat, your mood is in the dumps. Youre positively miserable, because you got flamers on one side, and your forced to finish a match you know you cant win on the other. The gold lead youve establed is 6,000 gold, WITHOUT taking into consideration the cs youve all lost out on by spending so much time dead. The enemy has a full item each on you, causing them to power spike. Sure you COULD win. But that win would be hard fought. Itd be an uphill battle, a long game, as you certainly couldnt close it out easily, and youd have to deal with your teammates tilting, and shitty attitudes all match. Youre looking at easily a 40 minute match while you grind out a lead. I dont know about you, but I can scratch out 2 wins in 40 minutes, and id rather do that. Youre completely wrong about what tilts players more.
This is the best summary of why the FF vote is broken. It seems like people that *hate* eachother love to stew in it and force themselves to play with people they hate for as long as possible. Most sane humans would wash their hands of the situation. Only in League is there this stupid mentality that it's SUPER negative to lose. It wouldn't be nearly as big a deal if League players would grow up. Then again, judging by most of the children in these threads that obviously don't have jobs or lives to worry about, I don't think that's gonna happen anytime soon.
: I literally will never FF at 15. Too many things can happen in the next ten minutes that make those first 15 minutes irrelevant.
Enjoy wasting your life on a meaningless videogame. I learned that it's not healthy after dedicating my life to WoW for a few years in the Vanilla/BC period of time. You'll regret this mentality 10 years from now when you look back and realize the sheer amount of time you wasted on gnashing your teeth and struggling through losses that you could have just moved on from. Life is too short for that.
: If the entire team is at fault then fine. If one or 2 players fed their asses off then no.
There's no worse feeling than the two people feeding the hardest being the two that deny the surrender vote. They typically give the excuse "I'm having fun!" as they ignore danger pings heading to their lane and die AGAIN to the 25/0 Evelynn that can 1-shot our tankiest character. There's no reason that the people who are having such a negative impact on the game should have so much power to waste 3 people's time.

The best suggestion would be for you to only play team games where you're going to commit to playing out the game. If that doesn't appeal to you, play another game. But to come on here and whine about people not wanting to quit because you want them to is childish and will produce zero results. But it's goddamn pointless to play in some games wasting time when u could be winning the next one everyone thinks u can comeback from anything but in reality it doesn't happen and then again most ppl that do not ff are those who fed and were toxic/negative and they do not ff just to try and make your day worse. Most cases it's not at all about the team spirit and trying to win it's just pure solo q terrorism.
> Most cases it's not at all about the team spirit and trying to win it's just pure solo q terrorism. Especially when you see most of the responses to this thread. They amount to "I want you to suffer so I make you play the game" and "If you don't like it, delete your account." Neither are reasonable. Proof enough that the 3-2 surrender vote is currently used as a method of inflicting toxicity. The 1/100 times where one of those "WE CAN WIN THIS!!!" games actually end in a win is not worth the other 99 drawn-out losses.

Glad your best suggestion is to tell people to just AFK in games and quit, just so your pride can remain intact. Seems mature.
Prozzak (NA)
: There are two parts to a game. Imo if your team is struggling early and you think they are poor then how did they get to the same rank as you? Maybe they are actually better at the second half of the game? My biggest problem is teams wanting to surrender before a real teamfight occurs. And I don't mean where one of the team runs in stupidly to 5 and dies then the rest of the team also fights afterwards. I mean a real fight.
Why does every goddamn person think that Ranked is the only mode that there is in this game? Plenty of people play Normal Draft/Blind, and this is a much bigger problem for those queues than ranked, especially when people are playing characters they're likely not maining. If you're masochistic enough to only play ranked, then you deserve to stay stuck in the game as long as it takes to end. And for the record--unless it's an absolute dumpster fire I typically wait until team fights roll around to ff myself. The ones I hate fighting out are the ones where every 5v5 teamfight is a steamroll or my bot lane ignores pings and dies for the 19th time at blue buff with no vision. I also take an honest look at the scoreboards and item builds and if the enemy has 2+ completed items on my team it's likely useless.
: ***
This is the garbage toxic mentality that is the reason why the FF vote should pass at 3-2. Grow up and realize people have better things to do with their day than waste it stuck with you.

: What's the point of playing if you never try to win a game that actually feels challenging? To me that would just be taking the best type of games away from myself which sounds awful. No game feels better to win compared to one where you basically had no hope and then made some huge rally instead to end up winning.
> What's the point of playing if you never try to win a game that actually feels challenging? This was a cute mentality in Season 1, but by 2018 I just want to move on to the next game if the entire team is doing bad. It's not a tough action game where I'm going to suddenly improve mid-game. It's a strategy game--and the available victory condition grows smaller and smaller the bigger the economic gap between teams is. Even moreso if I'm playing a character I'm not familiar with, and my entire team is doing awfully.

This mentality seems REAL healthy for the game! /sarcasm > > I'd rather have an easy loss and move on with my day than struggle for a win that makes me feel like shit every step of the way. If this is how all the higher elo and rank r then there's no such thing as skills then. Just people wanting to climb to see whose better. Higher elo may as well not even trash talk to the lower elo anymore because all u care about is the climb. Not the skills to play the game whether it be macro to micro. At least in the lower elo ppl want to improve.
So you mean high-ELO Korean ranked where players easily FF @ 8 if there are so much as *two* kills for the enemy team, because they understand the concept of wasted time? KR > NA I thought this was pretty well known by now. Meanwhile I can't even get out of a normal game where my team is getting farmed for S ranks. One of maybe four games I get to play after work--mind you. It's much easier to go play something like Fortnite where defeat is much more likely than victory--so most players don't even sweat a death and move on to the next game. Only in League is there this impossible expectation that bronzelords that hate eachother can somehow morph into diamond players under pressure to win the game. In spite of the proven track record (up to the surrender vote) of the team's inability to listen to pings, work together for objectives, or even cooperate as teammates. Sometimes, team members just aren't compatible.

: The score is 15-0 at 8 minutes. Stop holding the game hostage
I don't think it's over that early, but if my entire side of the map has no more turrets @ 20 minutes, and my bot lane duo hits "no" because they're "having fun" being 0/25 ONE MORE TIME I'm gonna sacrifice a Nunu plush to Teemo. Seriously: 5-4 split is okay to pass major legislative decisions in the US, but 3-2 isn't considered a majority in a videogame? What poor logic. It's one of the main reasons I no longer play Summoner's Rift. I don't care about losing or winning at this point, I just want to move on from bad games quickly so I can squeeze one more game into my night after I get off of work. Being held hostage by Galaxy Quest fanboys has completely ruined SR for me. Especially when I'm playing a character that I'm not great as (in Normal Draft), and I *know* nobody else is going to be able to dig us out of the hole just judging by the difference in Gold/Kills/Objectives. There's no worse feeling in League than being stuck in a game that was decided by the 20 minute mark that gets drawn out to the 60 minute mark because the enemy team is just farming yours for S ranks.
Rioter Comments
: Hey, sound designer here! I did another pass where that thunk is more emphasized (it actually still has elements that exist in the new sound effect but with some other stuff done to it). Let me know if this is feeling better for you! I also have Live Mundo's SFX in there for comparison. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHnAFhKfObI&feature=youtu.be
: Visual and Sound Effect Updates: Anivia, Dr. Mundo, Renekton, Gragas & Teemo
As a Mundo main--I like it, except the speed of the axe. The projectile speed feels quite a bit slower than it does on live, which is going to make it significantly easier to dodge on top of the clearer animation. Any chance the projectile speed can be bumped up just a little bit? Also it's really lame that the blood is getting removed. It's a *meat* cleaver, even if it's infected. It's not nearly as satisfying if it's not blood in my game about killing. What's next, is Vlad going to be replaced completely by sand? Mundo's an insane serial killer that gets off on pain and blood. Pls don't replace him with a Monster's Inc character like what happened to poor ole Nunu. Besides, [red trails](https://i.imgur.com/enfw4eu.gif) > green trails. Everyone knows this. If it's green, and has a green trail, will it now poison enemies? Because green makes it look like it's gonna inflict a DoT. So in summation you can keep the rest of the VFX, just leave the cleaver toss how it is on live. It's not worth giving up bloody FX just because Winnie the Pooh thinks blood is a no-no (Hi censorship!!!), or because a VFX designer seems to have a weak stomach when it comes to the slightest display of gore.
: How about a Mundo buff? He’s not doing really good right now.

Irelia doing well in pro play? Better nerf her for the other 99% of the population. Can't have people play against something strong until they discover a hardcounter or strategy, amirite?

please please please leave Mundo alone. I play him BECAUSE he has simple mechanics, just because some people have ADHD and need flashy exciting characters doesn't mean Mundo needs a gameplay rework. Mundo doesn't need some weird complexity shoved into his kit for the sake of it. Morde needs it FAR more than Mundo anyways.

: While everything sounds promising, there is one thing that doesn't make much sense and will make your job unnecessarily hard >Decided games resolve faster >Though we want comebacks to be achievable in most games, we also want to address a problem where one team in a game is so far ahead they have a near certain chance of winning, but the game still ends slowly. This to us is just not a good use of player’s time. If one team manages to gain an insurmountable advantage, the game should end pretty quickly from that point. We're looking into changes that help super snowballed teams close out the game. Isn't the surrender vote here for just exactly that? When the enemy team is so far ahead that a comeback is unlikely then you just surrender. Making a seperate mechanic that fundamentally just does what the surrender vote does will be hard to implement when you also want comebacks to be available. First you would have to define a big lead 5k gold lead? 10k gold lead? 15k gold lead? And what should happen when a team hits that threshhold? They gain a passive where they deal 100% bonus damage to towers? But then you might as well just auto-surrender for the enemy team. I think this is the only thing in that list you should rethink about. Other than that.... let's hope the future changes achieve what you have promised.
A quick and simple fix would be to let the surrender vote pass at 3-2 majority. A 5-4 split is enough for the Supreme Court to pass huge judgements in law; I don't understand why the 0/32 bot lane duo has the ability to block 3 players' ff vote. Being held hostage by one of the elements largely responsible for the near-guaranteed loss is one of the reasons I rarely play anymore. It's one of the most frustrating things I've experienced in all online games. But hey, it's completely fair to have to suffer through the enemy team farming for an S rank just so my bot lane can feel like they had a "fun" game.
