: How to Practice a Game with only Bots?
Once you create the custom game, you will be able to add bots to both your team and the enemy team. Put a password on it so nobody joins your custom game.

: Agree with most, this gaming community is pure toxic IMO
I've been playing this game since 2013 and I've noticed the opposite. It used to be commonplace to harass people right out the gate. "wow dude are you playing on a toaster?" was a very common jest. We made fun of people's computers, load times, skin or lack of skin, borders, ranks, within the first five minutes of the game. People are not as toxic as they used to be.

: Buddy. I called adc first after all and they practically begged me to give them the adc role. I really don't see the reasoning behind me getting muted though? And you please explain that, and make chat restriction justified?
Sorry, I missed the part where people are supposed to ignore playing what they enjoy and bend to your will. I thought this was a video game where people play to have fun, but as it turns out, only you are allowed to have fun. My bad.

"I hope you die" is offensive. "I hope you die because you are black" is racist. And offensive. Even more so. That's because it's offensive and related to race. How hard is that to understand? Oh, right. You didn't come here for actual perspective and opinion. You are here to argue that you are right and don't deserve it. I enjoy most the part where you responded to me, but only the bit that was a pseudo-psychological assessment. I try to explain why you were punished, and you ignore that completely. It's time for this thread to close.

Don't talk to strangers. These people are all mentally ill, probably bipolar or very serious aggression or anger issues and are in DIRE need of therapy. Sad but true. Another friend on my list told me a _large_ number of league players have various levels of mental illness or issues. And the community and the stress of a long boring game when you're losing just makes things worse.
It seems like you are stereotyping people with mental illness as being inherently toxic. Let's not blame poor behavior on mental illness. I am someone who has been dealing with mental health for a very long time. It is a choice to be toxic, mentally ill or not. People can get angry during a game and never hit enter to talk. I've gotten upset and never afk'd or intentionally fed. Poor behavior is a choice, and is not caused by mental illness. Most people who get chat restricted, suspended, or banned, come onto these boards to claim they didn't deserve it, not because they are "crazy" and don't realize that what they did was wrong, but because they have a different mindset that justifies their behavior. Their logic and reasoning that because someone trolled in their game first, they get to. Or someone was toxic to them so they can do it back. Someone on their team was playing badly so calling them "useless" was constructive criticism. It is a not a psychological disorder, but a learned behavior that they probably picked up in their childhood, or from their parents. It is a mindset that needs to be unlearned, not through therapy or medication, but through self-reflection and growth. Therapy may help with this, but it is not caused by a mental illness. My mental illness causes more intense emotional reactions, which you would think would lead to several instances of toxic behavior and punishments. I was chat restricted once, for telling a griefing player to "learn to read" and called him "bronze." That was my decision, and I have since dealt with the consequences, and I am much more aware of how I use my language in game now. More often than not, my mental illness has caused me to play badly after someone was toxic _to me_. Someone calls me "useless" and I am suddenly feeling like trash and playing like trash. When people choose to be toxic, it ruins the experience for everyone. Including the mentally ill.
: Is saying "ch1ng ch0ng" racist? (poll)
What it sounds like you did was degrade them for speaking their own language, mocked them for it, generalized it (by your own words), and treated it like it's not a real language (by using a fake phrase instead of a language). You said you don't understand the difference between Asian languages, and instead of asking them what they were speaking, used a "joke" phrase instead. The context in which you said this baffles me. You were obviously complaining that they were no longer speaking English. I live in Canada, and I've run into people speaking French. I've occasionally joked in Japanese as well. You don't have to speak English in the game chat. Your response to people speaking other languages shows that you are insecure about only speaking one language.
: I seriously don't understand this "Gaming is an industry dominated by men"
Women tend to leave male-dominated fields, even if they start in them. This is due to harassment and pressure from their colleagues. [Here is one source. ](https://nest.latrobe/83-of-women-leave-stem/) [Here is another.](https://dailycaller.com/2018/07/26/women-leaving-stem-depression/) [Here is another one.](https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/why-girls-leave-stem-and-what-you-can-do-about-it_us_59ff876ee4b076eaaae270c2) [Here is the wikipedia page for women in gaming from which you can get to the citations and sources at the bottom.](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_and_video_games) I don't know how to feel when I see the same arguments rehashed over and over again even though they've been debunked. When I see people say things like "women just aren't interested" and "there are no female gamers" it alienates first and foremost the women in the gaming industry right now, and the ones who want to get into it right now. Even if there is a smaller percentage, it is absolutely not okay to act like women have no interest in it at all. They do, and they will continue to. It is a very difficult thing to overcome challenges in your field. We should not shrug off their struggles by saying "maybe women just aren't as into it as men." As for the fight to get men into female-dominated fields? It's there. There are male makeup models and male nurses. However, they often get harassed out too. Usually by other men who consider them not manly enough. [Here is a source. ](https://www.nursingtimes.net/why-are-there-so-few-men-in-nursing/849269.article) This is a well-documented phenomenon with many studies to back it up.
: You people are garbage. You are more concerned about stiffling peoples free speech to fix the hundreds of bugs in the game. In two months, I've created 7 hours worth of clips of bugs using your recorded game system. 7 hours of clips. I only play a couple of games here and there lmfao I'm actually in the process of figuring out who to sue to get the money you are unlawfully denying my access to. My lawyer is convinced that what you are doing to me is VERY illegal. You cannot take my money for an item and then take the item away without refunding me. You people are brazen because no one has tried to call you on your bullshit, because you mostly just abuse poor little kids with tempers. But you fucked with a 23 yo business owner with WAY to much freetime. I'll be seeing one or more of you in court.

: As one of the "older" players around, coming back after the newest patch feels... cold.
I've been playing this game for about two years now. And you know what? OP is right. I've always been able to play my fave champs no matter the meta (aside from TF) but this season, it is quite impossible. Every game has a Yasuo. The biggest counters to adcs feel gone. Before reading this post, I even said to my league buddies "I'm not playing til the next patch when they hopefully FIX THIS." Riot was all about diversifying the game the last two seasons. This feels like a step back.

: Preseason 2015: A New Jungle
I scrolled down for comments about the changes and all I got was comments about URF. Yeah, it was great. Yeah, it should come back. No, we shouldn't talk about it on irrelevant posts.
: The Pentakill lore is not cannon, because otherwise Mordekaisers default weapon would be a guitar
I'm not completely against that.

: League's heading to Chicago for C2E2 this weekend!
Could someone tell me the artist of the picture used and possibly a link to the original (without the C2E2)? Kind of disappointed a wonderful artist was not credited here...
