: Bring Us Your Bugs!! Celebrating 10 Years of LoL
When you E as Syndra against a Leona who is during the travel of her own E, if timed correctly (as late as possible) Leona is pushed the correct distance but instead of being pushed away gets pushed in the same direction her E was taking her. So Leona ends up on the oppsosite side of where she started instead of in the direction of Syndra's E push.
: if im curently honor lvl 0 with 2 parts left to honor 1, am i able to make it in time to get the skin?
There's no exact timeframe. It's based on playing games without being reported for dishonorable stuff. If you play a ton and don't do anything worth being reported for, you can probably get there.

: So... we're ok with Yuumi having the lowest win percentage of any support but the highest ban rate? Or were we waiting to continue the pattern of nerfing her directly or indirectly every other patch, or...? You cannot possibly feel like Yuumi is in a good place.
They need to get her off the permaban list so players can play and get them data. They can't buff someone who is already highly banned. Cut it down and build it back up to a reasonable level.
: I’m fairly certain this thread is still being kept up to date with all the ARAM balance changes: https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/developer-corner/0Bt20UUK-aram-balance-update-thread
The point being: this information should be available in the client, in champion select, and in-game.

I think, the changes should be shipped if the majority are happy with it. The changes should be shipped if they make the game better. Sorry old Aatrox mains, your champ was unbalancable. Unfortunately new Aatrox is also practically unbalancable.
: I mean having both the terms scaling and assassin in the same sentence is kind of a oxymoron. The reason assassins have so much burst potential is because they are not built to scale well, and thus need to get a lead early in order to do well. The same is said of the "sustained-damage skirmisher" you are referencing. you are trying to combine two vastly different archetypes which just won't work out.
We used to have a sustained damage skirmisher. Luckily they gutted tank Ekko.
: Are there any other champions who may receive work for pro vs regular play differences after Ornn, Sejuani, and Galio that are planned?
I imagine this is a test before they tackle Ryze Azir and Kalista.
vhearts (NA)
: Hey Meddler Do you feel that tank supports are over represented in pro and higher elos in general? As a viewer, to me it feels like it and it seems like all the pros stream is tank supports because that's all they think is worth playing. I wonder if tank supports need a nerf or perhaps an adjustment on pro vs. low elo power similar to Ornn.
Initiation is a huge factor for pro play. Not getting instantly blown up when initiating is another. Having full coordination between 5 players makes initiations much more effective than poke once teamfights start to come up. Mage/poke supports work better in lane and smaller skirmishes.

La Bello (NA)
: the mini explosions on auto attack look REALLY bad and cartoonish just like the new Jarvan animations imo. Idk if I like it compared to just the small splashes of blood on impact. these effects seem at home on the Volcanic Renekton skin but they look.... out of place on base renek. seriously though. Why the mini explosions?
Because they can't show blood on some regions, and this works on all without needing a different effect.

: Why would you play on a VM anyway? What "security" difference will it make? A VM is still connected to your main pc, if your main PC had a virus in it, the person who made the virus would still be able to access your pw's (ofc not for all sites) through a complicated type of sniffing or man in the middle attack. I'm sorry, but this claim is pretty stupid. The only times VM's really do increase security, is when you're reverse engineering/testing a virus (or doing a review of one). And when that's the case, the VM is fully encapsulated to itself (meaning no internet connection). Depending on what Riot does with the change, this will prevent a wide spread of level up bots. This will prevent a lot of scripting platforms and this will make the integrity of the game better. They will obviously monitor it and tweak based on what people prefer. But as it stands, the only people I've seen use a VM is for bot farms.
The only legit VM type thing I can think of for League is emulating Windows on a Mac because the Mac client always has so many problems. The thing about VM's is it can prevent Riot from obtaining correct some types of unique Machine ID data to track cheaters/scripters and enforce bans. I used to volunteer on an old game that had that issue when Mac users were using Wine. Their Machine ID number was always just "1" which made it more difficult to track cheaters over multiple accounts. There are definately other ways, but it might heavily complicate things if Riot is trying to do so with an automated system.
Cosnirak (NA)
: Why isn't there a team at Riot that focuses on communicating with players? It seems like it's one of the most often lamented things by really great game developers that they don't have more time to communicate with the players and that doing so is so difficult to begin with. So get someone who is a pro at it to do it as their primary job. There aren't a ton of people who specialize in communication, do it well, love and play League, and actually understand a fair bit about game development so that they can be a good go between for Riot and the community. But they do exist! And it seems like Riot (and most major game developers honestly) could really use one (or five) of them.
Because the communication between teams is likely only done as-needed. So the communications people would just spend 98% of their days running around distracting people from their other work asking what they're doing. You could embed a communication person into teams, but then you realize they aren't doing anything for 80% of the day now, so give them other work which will almost always take priority over browsing reddit/league boards.
: Why not adding lighting and weather in League of Legends?
: How does it work? Is the change a way to add % bonus to bonus ad from items alone or is it something else?
It and his passive keep granting incresed stats. Rageblad sees stats, grants more. Jhin passive sees new stats, grants more! Rageblade sees these new stats and give more! At least that's basically how it was explained previously.
Meddler (NA)
: Looking for topics for Friday's post
How are the suportstone items faring? People taking them for Bandit procs seems to be becomming more common. Randomly having 2-3 sightstones on a team may become problematic. Could moving it to having better goldshare rather than attack procs work? Could making Bandit back into a rune give better options? Put in same row as stopwatch and free boots. Death recap overhaul?

: Can someone please help, I have tried all of the things above and I am pretty sure its not my mouse because it works for everything besides League. I even used the Hextech repair tool. I'm tired of looking as if im afking in game because of this.
Disable any overlays for other games you have. Close all non-windows apps and go into a custom game/practice tool. If that works, start bringing back your desired apps one at a time. Something is interfering, so it's a matter of trial and error to figure out what.

The boards are a cesspool of negativity. I never used reddit untill I realized this. It's an infinately better place for disussion. The boards themselves are terrible too.

Quínt (NA)
: Can I get a bit more explanation on the Zoe Q change? I believe I understand what it is implying, but just want to make sure =).
Distance based damage now has a delay. So using R to move as Q is about to hit won't increase that damage.
: So since I will be reset to Honor 2, checkpoint 3, does that mean I get the rewards for hitting those checkpoints at season start? or since I was honorable last season, I don't get as many key fragments on my way to Honor 5 again? Inquiring minds need to know!
You should get rewards as often as people climbing the honor ladder. You just start at a tier where the rewards are better. You will get more key fragments than someone who starts at a lower honor level. Since honor orbs keep droping after getting to 5, you'll have more time at honor 5 to get them. People who start lower miss out on some chances to get level5 honor orb drops that you'll get access to.

Recall level 5, buy bf sword. Get a 2for0 or trade your support for a double when your jungler ganks. Byebye enemy turret. I teel like it's too easy to get first turret in botlane so early in the game with the marksman only having bought literally just a bf sword.

Never banned. > > The trick is to not be an asshole. You're a silver 3 / bronze 3 flex -player who doesn't even touch ranked. Of course you wouldn't understand why people DO get frustrated.
Because unranked games don't get frustrating? Because I can't understand things and avoid them because of it? Your logic is pretty flawed.
: >Son 0f Nun: dont gank a losing lane Son 0f Nun: thats basic jungling 101 I would really like to know who instilled this moronic idea into League community that if a player loses his lane you, as the jungler of all roles, should not help him. Been a jungle main since season 4 and that is always the stupidest thing to hear. Here is what happens if you abandon a feeding lane: 1. Enemy team now has a very strong player on their team. 2. You now have a very weak player on your team. 3. Enemy team rallies around their fed player, harboring a sense of teamwork. 4. Your feeding team mate tilts and has no interest in contributing toward your teams efforts. 5. Your team turns in on themselves and begin spamming the "gg ff@15" If anything, you don't hard** camp** a losing lane but you should always gank to try and keep your ally in the game. Obviously you don't give your buffs up to a losing lane, but you don't let the lane get steamrolled.
Even something as simple as showing in lane to make the opponent back off is useful. Relieve pressure so your laner can stabilize. Focus SHOULD be towards hypercarry lanes. Get the snowball rolling, then spend more time on other lanes. Help mid take tower, then roam together. etc.
: > Had an Akali mid lane who gave up after dying once to the enemy fizz then proceeded to rant about how the game was over and how we should just give up In my experience , Akali always starts the game 0/4 and ends it 10/4 lul
Akali is very stat-check reliant. Once she builds enough stats to out-stat people, she relies on dodging CC to continue to be effective.
: if you use chat regularly you **will** end up banned
I chat all the time. Never banned. The trick is to not be an asshole.
: You're now a Rioter. What's the first (reasonable/semi-reasonable) thing you do?
The boards have become 4chan. Mods are asleep. Post sinks.
: Feature/QoL change/Idea Generator for 2018 and beyond!
Remove need to craft keys from fragments. Allow chest to be opened with 3 key fragments. Opens up for fragments to be used for higher/lower quality chests in the future. On phone so not formatted as desired, sorry.
: Any thoughts on the general lack of mana issues in the early game, especially for champs that have historically been balanced around them? (Jayce in particular, as he doesn't even build Manamune anymore)
And support Xerath who can literally never run out of mana. Mana coins, his passove, and manaflow band means you poke for ever and ever and ever and ever.

Most of the time someone says they only lost due to luck is because Tryndamere got two crits in a row in an exchange involving 5 auto attacks, which isn't at all outside of what is expected.
I've seen plenty of 1%crit rune winning plays watching just boxbox's stream. Let alone anyone else. That has gone away with runes, but things exist now like Zoe getting gunblade active at level 2 and 3 and just instantly winning trades.
: This is such bs
It doesn't know untill it goes to load the files for the game. It also only loads needed files. No reason to have all 1000 skin graphic/sounds loaded when only 10 are needed. Not having everything loaded all the time helps keep the client's memory footprint down out of game. This is commong among games to only load things as needed. As for errors occuring during the transition into game, that system is likely able to be improved upon to reduce the frequency of them.
: Winrate positive does not mean that the champion does not need change.
Asking for change is fine. Asking for straight up buffs for someone who is not significantly underperforming is another story.
: The balancing decisions have been a bit obscure and questionable lately. Can you link the PBE patch notes that you used?
This isn't PBE. This was went to live today.
: Sona is broken and definitely needed the nerf. She's wayyyy too braindead.
She could have used some nerfs. nerfs to her base stats, her rune base stats, favorite runes, in addition to ability nerfs is just way too much at one time.

: Remove champion shards from hextech chests
Just got 2 champ shards from an honor capsule. It feels like just a glorified levelup capsule instead of something special and unique, unless you get one of the unique honor rewards. With how few we get, maybe replacing champion shards in honor capsules with emote shard or ward skin shards would be an option? I get it's just more free stuff, but right now they don't really feel good to open generally.
: >Leveling capsules will now give out more raw blue essence and fewer low-value shards. Will this not make it harder to get a specific champ shard for mastery upgrade? I understand that with this change I won't get 3 Sorakas, but won't it reduce that chances of the lucky few getting the shard they want or nah?
The BE value of those old champs is probably low enough that you can disenchant the shard you get and buy it outright from a level or two's worth of capsules anyhow. This SHOULD be better for players who need the higher-value champs still. Having fewer low-cost shards in the loot table means the higher cost ones should be more likely to show up.
Ellundor (NA)
: What about making the Essence Emporium permanent? This could be a way for vet to spend their BE all the time instead of having to keep it and spend it all in one go which kinda feels bad when you have lots of BE and can't use it.
Coming around once every few months with different things feels better IMO. Have some Evergreen stuff that's always in (random ward skins/icons/emotes, stuff like that), and rotate through other content such as old skins, chromas, and maybe a yearly unique thing.
: Riot should enable One For All for a week every time a new champion is released.
Overwatch does this with variations in their arcade modes, and it's really nice to get to practice someone new, and learn to play as, with, and against them. They had 6v6 Doomfist only for his release. There's 6v6 No limits up now with Moira's release.
Rayven (NA)
: Are ticks difficult to see for you on all colors?
Would it to be feasible to have a toggle option to have a number-based healthbar? It would certainly be better for clarity overall. It might just be better overall if we'll ever get a shielding amount added in. It could also become more bold as %missinghealth thresholds are met. So something like this for full/75%/50%/10% (with critical still flashing) 1000/1000 **750/1000** ##500/1000 #100/1000 +(800) with the (800) indiciating a shield amount. The problem would be how to manage different shield types. There might be room for two shield quantities, but text might start getting squished in a bit. Although it's not much better than the tick marks on 4000+ health champs or big Seraph's Embrace shields.
Echoing (NA)
: I thought so too, but we don't get any text support that really clarifies that. We just know she has a message, which is so insignificant she forgets entirely about it and nukes the keep. If she was after the rune, she'd probably take better note of it.
I dont think she is supposed to take it, but warn about an upcoming rune war, with more runes having been discovered.
