: >Choosing FILL / BOTTOM means a player would be queued to play any role, except ADC. Choosing FILL / JUNGLE means a player can be queued into any role, except Jungle. A bit counter-intuitive, and could lead to a lot of players who don't read patch notes and ignore popups to not understand why they're never getting their secondary role. It also largely defeats the purpose of filling.

: Ultimate skins? The future of TFT's microtransactions
they should be focusing on making this game mode actually good before monetizing it
: Keep in mind: NO items = more coins. More coins = early 2 star champions, where the item gainers don't (first three rounds in Coins = 8 more coins= potentially 8 more champs or a couple of rerolls that the item gainers don't have. Can also lead to faster Interest income) Most early 2 Star Trist/Kass are gained this way. And after level 3, your level 1 champ chances plummet, so it's really useful towards early 3 star champs.
there are people that could sell ice to an eskimo and salt to a snail. youre not one of them. this pitch is fucking awful.
: I had rounds where i got no items in the first pve round. And just 1 item from golems and got 2nd place at the end. I had games where I had 2 full items (good items) after the first pve round. And ended up in 7th place. I won't mind if they guarantee you get a component in the first pve round for example, but you guys cry would waaaaaaaaaaaaaay to hard about this.
thats the part where knowing how to play your hand comes in. if you got more resources and still lost that sounds like a player problem.
: Legacy Cursor Removal
theres no big reason i dislike the new one, its just that i've used the old one for like 10 years now and its weird to play with something else
: "man who built demons loses to slightly luckier man who built demons"
: Why in the fuck does Riot make RANKED for TFT?
they wouldnt implement ranked for aram but theyll implement ranked for a mode that has rng items, rng champ rolls, rng drop chance, and now a champ with an rng ability.
: This is a joke Riot.

Sounds more like youre just not that good at it and are just blaming RNG. hes exaggerating, but hes not wrong. its more like 50/30/20 percentages of luck/strategy/positioning
: So riot letting league burn in favor of TFT
no theyre not, tft is garbage too. they managed to ruin that with the first patch.
: I do not think the future is bright for this mode. Riot's philosophy for it is not reassuring.
the game was looking really cool. the fact that it is rough around the edges was forgivable because it is a new concept, and then when they acknowledged the problem points of the game mode and proposed decent changes that could have made it a lot better, they pull a 180 and slam dunk that motherfucker right into a fucking dumpster. reminds me of when they added bans to aram, then stripped it right back out because its always one step forward then 2 steps back with these clowns
: I like how you made item RNG worse
i stopped playing. if enough people think theyre steering the game in a bad direction and just dont play it, maybe theyll change these stupid ideas. if people keep playing it means they either like it, or that theyre willing to tolerate it. frankly, theres better games that arent nearly as frustrating, and i can just play those instead. tft was a good idea that is being wasted by r%%%%%ed decisions.
: good players get + 1 + 2 + 3 gold for winning consecutively! bad players get + 1 + 2 + 3 gold for losing consecutively! bad players get to pick a champion with an op item first! good players are being punished by riot cause they let bad players pick champions with items first. bad players are getting the same AND an extra reward for their horrible play. i once got 6 coins at a raptor, my opponent got 2 bf swords and a recurve bow, and got to pick a champion with an item first, i wonder who won the game {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}
players who understand the game have learned that sticking all of their power on the board is a bad move, and there are guys just sitting on their items instead of using them, and purposely keeping their placing low so they get a better draft i.e. if youre winning early all the time, youre probably not one of the good players.
Pika Fox (NA)
: It matters a lot. Comp is far more important than items. And your goal is 4th or better, not first.
how the fuck do you not see the problem with the fact that actual strategy can only get you into the top 50% and the rest of the game is a coin flip
prsnbish (NA)
: TFT isn't "luck", and you're not "bad" Strat-sharing
anything past top 4 is 70% luck. taking measures to mitigate rng as much as possible and favoring known strong setups isnt groundbreaking and none of this is new information
: So riot is already fucking up this gamemode
fuck this game mode, seriously. them listening about item RNG was basically the last (only) bastion. the fact that they kept in this trash item rng seals the awful frustration points of the mode. it is one of those games thats fun when youre wide eyed and new to it, and dont understand the cornerstones of the strategy well enough. once you figure the game out well enough to start winning, but get hamstringed by the game facefucking you with zero item drops while some asshole is sitting on two full items worth sitting on his bench before first draft, it is enough to just alt f4. can you still win when your opponent has double your items? yeah. i guess. technically. does it feel like youre the fucking protagonist of final destination trying to defy a fate that is actively trying to doom him? yes. its fucking garbage. dota underlords exists. it has the bonus of being available on my phone as well. i'll just play that. also props for adding TF to TFT, so we can have more fucking rng nested into the russian stacking doll of RNG that is this absolute waste of potential.
: Ability to see enemy's team comp
game could use a tab menu that shows the same shit we see at post-game
: When you win despite having worse items and lower level champions in TFT.

They only dodge auto attacks, not abilities. You can very much beat them with AOE spells or equipping a adc with Rapid Fire Cannon. its really easy to fully aquire. there are no legendary yordle units. the rarest unit is gnar, which you should at least be able to get a 1 star in most games.
its not fucking easy to manage your bench when three of your champs show up at the same point in the game, and at 3g no less. yordles have the worst rarity distribution in the game because of having three blue rarity, you have to try to work on three 3g champs at the same time and its not feasible most of the time.
: yorde synergy is broken
tristana is the only one thats easy to get. if someone has 6 yordles that are higher than rank 1, they got trashed for about 15 minutes to reach that point and deserve a decent payoff
: PSA: Buy 1 cost units early, even if you plan on not using them later.
just keep your bench full, shit sells for the same gold that u buy it for. sitting on tokens ur opponents need is virtually the same as having gold since u can just hock it for 100% value when u need to
: Add stun duration diminishing returns, or immunity/resistance/lower duration to stun items.
idk. theres a lot of really busted ass shit in this game mode. stuns are just one of them. i agree there should be itemization against it, or it could be built into the passive team bonus for knights or guardians or something, but not default resistance
Barkley (NA)

Copic (NA)
: TFT requires no skill to win, prove me wrong.
knowing how to play the mode well can get you top 4, maybe top 3. after that its pure rng. and bad luck can dump you into the last or second last place regardless of what you do. theres really shit you can do when someone has literally three times your items, or some clown somehow has four t3 champs before the third draft.
: /muteall works
this is good to learn, ty mate
: Lucian is fairly rare and isnt a good starting choice, ontop of the gunslingers being bugged.....and well, him dashing into the enemy team every now and then, makes him real bad. *Unimpressive default damage *Kiting doesnt work well unless you stack items on him *Maxed class bonus does not work. *Difficult to upgrade. In essence, these are why you should never use him as a main carry of any kind, either you just grab him for the noble´s comp or for the gunslingers whenever they get fixed......although its actually a question if Graves isnt better than him, easier to upgrade and does more damage although you´d end up relying on getting MF to max the comp if ignoring lucian which is a huge lottery case.
you have severe head trauma if you think lucian is bad
Rioter Comments
: Game freezes after loading - can't pick from first carousel
load in, see all the first draft champs. they all disappear once im allowed to pick, and pop in one at a time. half the time when i try to move, i rubberband or theres a huge delay before i move. i almost never get an actual first pick.

: ARAM is still garbage
u been losin ur aram games huh bub
Power Mac (EUW)
: Well, a few games ago I've been flamed by a couple enemies because I dared to write (as I always do at the start of a game) in the global chat "Good luck and have fun, guys". Anyway, those guys are utterly disgusting. I've never seen something like that happening on the European server, seems like America has a major issue with the concept of respecting women.
: This game isn't enjoyable anymore. And it's the community's fault.
>This game used to be great. When I first started in season 1, players were helpful and supportive to new players, and it ushered in a nice era of good vibes, good community, and cohesiveness. Sure, people got competitive and maybe said some mean things once in a while, but it wasn't by any means a toxic place to play a game. youre such a fucking liar i cant even read any further than this

: They want it to be "clutch" because that is "visually exciting" Same reason why damage just goes higher, the chunk of damage you see is visually appealing for spectators. The game is made for spectators, not players. How else can you make advertisement revenue?
the sad reality. they havent cared about how trash the game is to play for a long time now, its all about wanting it to be fun to W A T C H. same reason overwatch is in the dumpster, and all the other garbage ass esports games.
: Riot extreme favoritism strikes again.
i think u ppl legit forget this fucken game is free so they make popular shit thats actually gonna sell instead of making stuff for borderline unmarketable champs
: Because ARAM only players shouldn’t have a say in the gamemode they play the most.
: Literally just had an argument with some idiot that "Bans make ARAM not random" some people don't know what the fuck they're even talking about
: Seriously. The only people who were complaining about ARAM bans were people with ARAM accounts.
personally i cant wait to read how they bullshit and blow smoke in their justification post about it tomorrow.

Ether you're going to actively try to shut down those kind of accounts or you're not. Removing banned champions is 100% catering to those accounts. I have all the champions and I think banning in ARAM goes against what ARAM is. I also think an ARAM account is a myth. The term ARAM account has been blown way out of proportion when you consider that ARAM picks from your champions, the weeks free champions and the prior weeks champions. You can collect the good champs and give yourself better odds but peoples freak outs are way over blown.

: I played aram a lot and dropped it in this event. But I liked having bans. I dropped it because tanks were too broken and damage too low. Unless you were a vayne or kaisa (specially vayne) with 3 tanks to peel for you, as a squishy you'd do no damage, and would be perma cc'ed by unkillable tanks and then you'd die. I think it was either buff tanks and nerf damage, but they this both so it became boring and repetitive. And when you get to be the tank it's too brain dead to be enjoyable. I think maybe many of us usual aram players felt that way and dropped aram after completing the quests. I bet most of us did so because of balance and not because of bans. Theres a reason most players did use their bans most of the games.
damage has never been the problem. tanks have always won in the long run. its champs that make their entire team unapproachable -- i.e., veigar, janna, zyra, and cass. you have to have a hardcore ungabunga comp full of heavy dive to make any headway, and then its a 50/50 whether or not youre going to actually win or just snowball the game in the oppositions favor. the worst part about having to face teams full of that bullshit wasn't that you get poked down -- its that you get poked down, and essentially dont even get to play the game. there is zero avenue of approach against veigar playing safe. its the most boring fucking shit ever. you basically just sit there for 15 minutes and lose in most cases without ever even engaging the opponent. thats why aram was trash, and its why veigar was double banned in half the games. other than him and some of the other more oppressive zoning champs, there was a good mix of tank bans (maokai, and sion) and even a fair amount of melee dps (yi was common ban in my games)
Hotarµ (NA)
: Backtrack and bans removed from ARAM.
after how many years we finally got the bullshit aram accounts dealt with, and now its being reverted yep, fuck leage. maybe one day riot will make a fun game mode that is actually properly supported.
"boo hoo i cant have the aram globe trotters on my team every other game anymore" cry me a fucking river. this is the best thign to ever hit this game mode.
: Annual Reminder: There is STILL no old-ass grandma champion
some of riots lessons learned over the years included one very important one -- dont make a champ unmarketable. trundle and urgot had to be redesigned because their visuals were completely despised by the players. why go out of their way to make somehting that almost nobody actually wants, when they can pump out another woman with cannonball tits that teens will buy 10 skins for
