: What dumb things did you do/say when you started League?
Not buy pots because I thought they worked too slow and I should just back. Built AP on GP because his Q is an ability and Ability Power would make it better. Didn't play any other role but support till level 16. Speaking of support, I played Garen.
: Clearly you need to take her to the next level... or 2. That way she will be Level 18 and no one will really care.

Nah fam still not okay. age/2 + 7 is the golden rule.
: How is it rewarding to get 450be champ shards in every single level up capsule?
Got 15 Champ shards so far, the only non-450 champs I got so far are {{champion:5}} and {{champion:29}}
: I don't think grouping Overwatch loot boxes with Battlefront loot boxes is the best thing for these commissions and organizations to do. I know not all of them do, but it seems like Belgium is all for doing it. There's a major difference between purely cosmetic things inside loot boxes and genuine advantages inside loot boxes.

Not for their purposes. In terms of how it affects the players, yes, there is a difference between the two systems. But these organizations aren't looking at what the player experience is, they're trying to decide whether or not they're gambling. The dictionary defines gambling as * take risky action in the hope of a desired result. By this definition, no matter what is inside of the lootboxes, cosmetic only or otherwise, if players are to spend money in order to have a chance at something they want while not having that outcome be guaranteed, it counts as gambling.
: Maybe at present, but not at D3 launch...
I think in terms of overall profit, HS has brought in more than D3.

Sevetar (EUW)
: @Meddler Yorick's PBE nerfs.
>just maybe Demolish and Grasp are a little too strong on almost every juggernaut/tank champ ? Most Juggernauts are in the dumpster to the point where {{champion:82}} {{champion:420}} and {{champion:122}} are borderline jokes. They really don't need to be hit harder.
: Ok, but none of Blizzards big titles are free-to-play (sorry, HotS and Hearthstone pale in comparison to Diablo, Warcraft (especially WoW), StarCraft, and Overwatch). Even to this day, the only thing we can spend money on for League are skins and other cosmetic items. By giving us a way to obtain them for free, Riot was willingly giving up at least a portion of their profit margin (even though I'm sure they ended up breaking even by appealing to the gamblers and and people who were like "ooo kewl skin shard, lemme just buy some boxes to farm orange essence"). As for people buying/opening hundreds of chests for youtube videos, first of all, they don't HAVE to do that. They are doing it as part of their fan service because they believe it will benefit their channel (and any monitization it gets) in the long run. Also, the problem you're facing is simply your reference point. You believe that because Riot "nerfed" Orange Essence gains that loot boxes suck now. But think of it like this: what if Riot had launched hextech crafting as it is right now? You would have nothing else to compare it to, and you'd think it was great because it gave you the opportunity to get free stuff. Clearly Riot (and/or Tencent) has decided that micro-transactions are no longer as lucrative, and so they reduced the amount of free stuff they give us in an attempt to encourage us to whip out our credit cards again. It's just a business decision. And as much as I hate some of the bullshit Riot has done over the years to turn a profit (I'm still rather offended by the introduction of Chromas) the reduction of orange essence isn't one of them.
SC:BW (IE. The good one) is free. Plus I would put big money on HS bringing in more cash than D3.
: Don't worry guys, a Rioter in the other thread said they were gonna introduce more orange essence through other programs. When? Soon™ It's totally not shady to secretly nerf all the skin shard values before those other systems are ready.
>Secretly nerf >Implying RIOT hasn't been open about it They've fucked us over, but they're looking us in the eye while doing so. Don't exaggerate.
: Are your games even, or very one sided?
Most of my recent games have been great, honestly. Almost always 30-40 minutes, comebacks are common enough and I almost never feel like FFing is worth it.
: it took me YEARS to freely obtain all champions in this game with the old system. right now its easier than it has ever been to get new champions, especially with champion shards which i WISH i had when i was first starting out the game back in 2012. what people want is for all the champions to be free like they are in OW, but people forget that you paid $30($60 when it launched) for the game and those characters. you paid $0 to join league.
Well, yes, but if you wanted to buy all the characters in league it would cost 700$~. The way I see it, there are three ways you can go about sating the complaints people have -The DotA/OW method and make everything free from the get go, and by the way, sod off with your "league is free" bullshit because DotA is too -The SMITE method and make a reasonably priced bundle of all the champions. Maybe not as cheap as it is in SMITE but having the option would be nice -Make it so that unlocking things doesn't take forever (Yes, I'm aware the old system takes longer. No, that doesn't make this less shitty) Will RIOT realistically do any of this? Fuck no. At the end of the day RIOT is a business, and businesses exist to make money. Nothing wrong with that. But please don't sit there and tell me that RIOT's system, either the new one or the old one are built for the players, because they aren't, they're built to get people to crack and spend money for the things they want.

: It's so tilting, LoL feels like a game for exclusively 18> players.
Well, there is an alternative. There are plenty of other MOBAs out there with HoTS, DotA and SMITE all having very active player bases, if LoL is your game of choice then by all means keep playing but don't say it like this is the only MOBA in the world.
: you're a trooper.
np, it is pretty mediocre all things considered, it has a strong begining and a good end but there is about 8-10 episodes of sheer mediocrity in between the 2.

Elise and Rek I get but Gragas can put in work no matter how behind he is.

: Yeah. It happens to like three different people here. And one of them was super necessary to the plot of the game for a pretty good amount of time. Because reasons.
Also, it is worth noting that the games rerelease on the Vita spawned a 2nd anime that is miles worse than the 1st in all ways but animation, so try and stay clear of that.

: Yes, but does anyone die the episode they're introduced in? Because that happens. Multiple times.
Only one character but to be fair, that characters reason for existence is to move the plot forward since it is a show about a serial killer.
: So not at all like the devil survivor anime where everyone but Hibiki, Yamato, Daichi, and Io flip through the character revolving door and get absolutely no love whatsoever. The only thing the DS2 anime did right was the opening and closing song and animation. Especially the closing.
One thing worth noting is that the persona games feature a huge cast of over 20 characters all with there own arcs which the player progresses through, however, for the sake of runtime all of those not directly part of the main cast (about 10 characters) are more so cut down to supporting roles and cameo appearances.
: yes its much better then Devil survivor IMO also there is a movie about the game before this one persona 3 its called
The persona 3 movies are in a set of 4, right now the finale has yet to air. ~~ Also, they are pretty bad~~
: and one of the fighting games was also a crossover.
No, not really, both of the fighting games were advertised as Persona 4 games with guest cameos from the older cast, unlike Q which gave equal attention to both games. I guess really it all becomes semantics but I think the biggest thing to note is that both Arena games have Persona 4 in the title unlike the crossover game which excluded all numbers from the title.
: Persona 4 is a JRPG developed by Atlus that features a lot of dungeon-crawling and more than a little bit of "Face yourself" bits. It's been received well enough that it's got... A remake for Vita A manga Two fighting games A rhythm game A crossover game Two different anime ...I think that's all. It's pretty good- one of the few times I've ever played a game and genuinely felt fear for *asfatetagaga* when she's taken away. I steamrolled through that dungeon in one go because I wanted to save her so badly.
You missed the 2nd fighting game : ^)
: Important question: is it any better that Devil Survivor 2 the Animation? Not that it's hard, but still.
By leaps and bounds, there are legitimately arguments for the anime portraying a better story than the game at some times, although admittedly that lies mostly on the comedy.

Eedat (NA)
: [[POLL]] What is your biggest issue with LoL currently?
The reworking of champions who didn't need it. I will still never understand why champions who were for the most part fine (Shen, Ryze, GP, Graves) all got reworks meanwhile there are champions who could actually benefit from it, I still think that by and large Fiora is the most blatant case of this as there is very little about her new kit that it similar to her old one which was completely fine, it really felt to me as though Riot deleted a champion from the game and replaced it with little to no prompt to do so.
: Support. Can you think of any sport with bith solo and team players? that would be the best analogy for this game

That's kinda the trade-off, if you don't wanna pay gold too counter him then give up one of your summoners for {{summoner:14}} which applies grievous wounds.

Kinetika (NA)
: Holy hell - a post that makes sense while not coming across as a bitchfest. I don't agree with the statement that items are becoming less viable (many champs don't benefit that much from CDR), but otherwise I think you are absolutely correct. CDR is over used and available too often....it should be a CHOICE with drawbacks rather than a built-in stat on a plethora of items. For example Zhonyas, Abyssal, and Triforce should NOT give CDR in my opinion... They each have plenty of utility without the CDR
I'll give you Zhonya and Abyssal but I think Triforce is justified, although it is meant to be a marksman item nowadays it was still supposed to be the item that did it all.
: And yet for a few months we had a golden age where you just banned Gragas and Sejauni and then picked any number of champs. Juggernauts don't count, that was the beginning of ruining the Season 5 balance.
I could argue that Maokai and maybe Zac were strong then also, I know Maokai was a top priority ban for me.
: It's not necessarily a rock-paper-scissors game, but more of a game where every hero has something very unique to offer, and while a side effect of that is that very hard counters exist, it gives you a reason to pick everyone, because every hero's unique strength is very emphasized. That's why so many heroes get picked. For example, Dota's Caitlyn (Sniper) can literally outrange towers. Shaco (Riki) has 100% uptime stealth as a passive until he attacks. Warwick (Bloodseeker) can hunt an injured player down across the map. Getting hooked by Blitzcrank (Pudge) is a death sentence. Brand (Lich) can 1v5 an entire team with his ult if they don't spread out. And if Master Yi (Juggernaut) has his ult up, you better run. And overloaded champions (like Ekko and Lee Sin) don't really exist. The idea is that, if everyone is super, no one will be. http://www.monologuedb.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/Jason-Lee-Buddy-Pine-Syndrome-The-Incredibles.jpg
I am a pretty big DotA player but one thing I found with your comment that is more or less wrong is that there are no overloaded kits. There are, they just have a MUCH higher cap so it isn't as noticeable (Please see Invoker for more details)

27 actually, as someone else pointed out Brand has one as of the MSMU and Blitz has a self slow in his W.
: The list is even shorter than that. The following champions you listed above do have slows in their kit: * Aurelion Sol's R * Evelynn's R * Vladimir's E and W * Draven's E * Poppy's Q, * Syndra's W * Ziggs' E * Kassadin's E * Zyra's Vine Lashers
You forgot Blitz's self-slow on his W.

: well idk the terms but tencent does it
wut? Tencent has no real connection to LoL itself. It is like saying Fallout was made by ZeniMax. No, it was made by Bethesda, yes Zenimax owns Bethesda but no way in hell did Zenimax have ANY influence it anything related to fallout.
: I like the idea, but the gameplay falls short of the theme. Not that the gameplay is bad either (while ~~she's~~ they're not really balanced at the moment...), it just doesn't fit with the whole plural champion thing. I always imagined a dual champion would be "form-change", where switching forms would just switch which character you're controlling, and there would be a lot of interaction between the two kits.
Yea, I really got hyped for Kindred's release when I saw the trailer but I was really let down.
: Not being a religion is not a valid explanation for not knowing that religion.
It really is, I don't know the first thing about Taoism, Shintoism or Hinduism, and to be honest I doubt you know much about them either.
