: Service Announcement about Ornn's Passive
his passive rework sucks balls. It is very counter intuitive, needlesly complicated and odd to use
: Because for some reason Riot think that if a team is ahead, they should be able to finish quickly instead of endlessly sieging the team that is already behind and is locked in their base, losing access to jungle and drake/nashor. I don't really agree with this, but that's the reason. If you lost a fight near your base, you lost the game.
thing is, sieging from behind made the game drag endlessly to the 50 min mark. I'd rather have the game be done and move to the next one
: Overly simplified, on live servers despite the fact that its not finished yet, ect. I guess they don't care what it looks like because if you stay logged in, you'll rarely see it anyway, but that doesn't erase the fact that its still a terrible representation of the game/company. It doesn't feel like a Riot launcher or a League launcher. It feels like something completely separate from both.
I can see that. It does look kind of odd, like it was designed as a completely diferent entity with a different design philosophy
: We pitched this back during Kindred's development. I still love the idea and wish we could do this, and I still hold a candle of hope that one day Kindred'll be so in the meta that we'd make a series: gazelle/gator, dolphin/kraken, sparrow/boa. What combos do you folks think would work for which regions?
if you want that maybe you should rework her stacking system so it has a better thematic fit, isn't as comboluted, allow for a unique/fitting build and isn't so feast of famine (sorry if harsh but it is the truth, I actually love Kindred's design) I'd love to see a frejlordian version based on Gods like Volibear, Orn and the like
Rioter Comments
: I love the idea, but dragon specifically maybe it would have too much of an overlap with shyvanna's rework? Still I think a champ that rides jungle camps and gets stat buffs from them would be fun
also the champ would probably have to be something small like a child or yordle so that it can fit on top of the jungle camp model without it looking too jarring
: Since Ixtal has Dragons, Can We Get a Dragon Rider?
I love the idea, but dragon specifically maybe it would have too much of an overlap with shyvanna's rework? Still I think a champ that rides jungle camps and gets stat buffs from them would be fun
: I'm a Silver JUNGLE MAIN. Here are some JUNGLE TIPS I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE.
Kejorn (NA)
: Zed cant because the amount of damage hos ult deals scales with the damage he dealt while it's active. It's not flat like cho or urgot.
the way I envisioned it working was for the executioner desplay to activte when the shuriken did, just to make it more visible
: Aurelion sol rework is disgustingly horrible.
while I think you aare being too harsh on the developer (s) that made the changes, yeah the rework feels extremely bad. You actually have to be mor e precise with your movement than before since those 3 seconds are so important for damage output, and without landing your Q first, W is useless unless you are using it to push lane
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: August 30
As a long time Teemo player, this changes are great! thanks a lot Just wanted to ask. I don't personally play Zed a lot, but since Cho Gath got an execution marker (like Urgot's and Pyke's) and he already has the shiruken execution mark, I was wondering if you would consider adding it at some point where whoever would be in charge of such a thing would have some available time. For Cho gath it worked wonders since I play in low spec mode and couldn't notice many times his execution marker
: Conq is his best rune or maybe aftershock just saying
nah, electrocute is way better
Bârd (NA)
: Why is Garen now more of an attack speed champion than Aatrox?
they only changed garens E so that he could get more benefit off buidling trinity
Kürama (NA)
: If the population is so small, why does the server space even matter?
they can use that server space for other game modes that presumable would be played more/ make riot more money. server space is determined by games hosted, not exactly number of players (although they are obviously related). There is probably a bunch of unused games in TT just sitting there empty... that would be my guess at least
: They explained that TT is going to be removed to focus resources on their more popular gamemodes so there must have been **someone** working on it since the last update 4 years ago
I'm pretty sure resources means server space
mzicio (EUW)
: Imagine if he had very few voice lines of its own, but instead repeated the lines of the champions he's recently killed with some kind of voice filter effect. Sort of like a crow imitating human words.
: Please don't nerf Kled around having GW on Q. Nobody who plays Kled wanted that shit.
Unpopular opinion. I actually think kled having griveous wounds is a good thing. Whener he has to build executioners calling it completely messes up his build path but he has to against many match ups top
EdgeLady (NA)
: Sylas did get a login theme, just not an animated splash. I'm grateful he did get a login screen of a sort, at least. But yeah, as I've said before, this is likely due to Riot's money loss and budget costs. Possibly combined with the more positive hope that they're also working on a new game, but...honestly, they should be more focused on making the quality of their *current* game as consistent as possible before taking a leap with shafting off half of their departments onto something they aren't revealing and their current playerbase knows nothing about. Because, while we can speculate, all we see before our eyes is League of Legends becoming cheapened. It saddens me.
don't know why you were downvoted, you are right on the money
: Ranked just released, so its safe to say the mode is now fully implemented. As expected, its completely free to play with no limit. Also: 1) im aware already why companies use their own currencies. You can also submit a data request to view the raw value for the money you actually spent on the game 2) again, just play the game and you'll be rewarded, you're nor forced to have to spend money 3) thousands of games per day, and you need to play about 3-5 to level up. This guarantees your 990 BE
you need way more games to level up as you go higher in level. Most people play one to two days a day, playing 3 days a week anyhow. Ranked is in beta

wtf, why are you being aggressive in the first place. I have never payed for one single lootbox in my life, so no I don't particularly like them. that being said, sorry I don't meet the number of posts for your criteria to make my opinion valid XD.... some people on these boards smh Also if you look at my history you will see I almost NEVER make posts about circlejerks, I don't like being redundant or jumping on band wagons, but sure, go ahead with your hard hitting journalism bub
HeartVine (OCE)
: So, where exactly do you draw the line with RNG elements? Because I've taken a quick squiz through your posting history, and not a *single* mention of any of the many lootboxes that are shoved into LoL. I mean, let's be honest, they've found their way into just about every rewards based system in the game, are are much, *much* closer to actually being gambling (even using the same "flashy colours/animations" techniques as gambling devices, such as slot machines) than the TFT mode, and yet you seem to be content to completely ignore the problems they pose. Seems like this is *just* about TFT, and nothing to do with actual gambling...
lootboxes there is plenty people already talking about them, this no one, so I made the post. Keep in mind I am not saying this systems should be banned, just bared from younger people
: a "paywall" implies setting forth currency of actual value. if you can play by getting a ticket, FOR ABSOLUTELY FREE, its not a paywall.
how many games do you have to play in the two weeks or so to be able to earn one ticket? how many tickets will most players have to buy to play regularly and without stopping? how many games does the average Lol player play in a week? how many games does a player have to play in order to play clash regularly and still have enough BE to get the next new champ? If you manage to answer those questions, then you will know whether there is a paywall or not I'm case this is all flying right over your head, let me give you an extreme example: Imagine are only able to Get 1 BE each day, a new champ comes out each week and costs 7 BE, and you can pay 1 BE a day to play clash during weekend. You now have to make the choice to get the new champ, play clash or pay actual money to get either....BUUUT we haven't taken into account, say, most people can only play 3 days a week. That means if they play at least one day of clash a week, they would take about one to two weeks more to get the new champ, or if they get the champ they wouldn't be able to play clash for a while unless they paid actual money. Riot uses larger currency so it is all harder to track for you and you are willing to pay money for it. Why do you think you have to buy RP instead of showing the actual money values of things in the frst place? why do you think the amount of BE things cost isn't even? that is designed so all that I explained to you flyes right over your head
: > [{quoted}](name=DeadUnborn,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=8ieWmgZW,comment-id=00000000000000000000000000000000,timestamp=2019-07-01T00:05:33.349+0000) > > yeah, and what happens when you run out of BE? if you play enough you never would. > you have to start paying? no. the plan for it was to run once every two weeks. if you cant manage 990 BE (with that being literally 1 level up) then you dont even play the game enough. > Guess what else you need BE for? champs? New champ comes out and you don't have BE, you have to pay to use him/her. or you could: 1) save your BE in advance being that youre given 3 weeks notice for all champion releases 2) wait patiently for it to drop to 6300 like any other champ (1 week) 3) create a PBE account for absolutely free to try any new content, paid or not. there is nothing forcing you to have to use said new champion either. > And Clash would be permanent, so if you really want to play a lot of it you would have to pay once every two weeks, 990 BE per ticket. would be impossible to "play a lot" as everyone plays the same amount of games before they close it the next week. also if you were lacking BE, ANYONE on your team could purchase a ticket for you, for 990 BE. there really isn't an excuse here.
so now instead of arguing there is a paywall you are saying you can prepare for it and manage it so it isn't as bad? That's my queue out
: Ok... if tft is gambling then so are card games, board games, any rpg that has a drop chance, any game that has any amount of rng period.
difference with board games is that they only require one payment, and depending on the game there are various degrees of RNG. Lootboxes and paid RNG goods are currently being investigated precisely because of the same reasoning I am using. Card games also predate on people impulses. How much money did you spend on yu gi oh or magic as a kid on paper? it is also inmoral, but for a different reason, albeit related
: you could purchase clash tickets with BE. a completely free currency. and everyone had a limit on it regardless if they had paid or not because at max it only ran 3 days.
yeah, and what happens when you run out of BE? you have to start paying? Guess what else you need BE for? champs? New champ comes out and you don't have BE, you have to pay to use him/her. And Clash would be permanent, so if you really want to play a lot of it you would have to pay
: actually, you're misunderstanding what it actually reads. what it reads is 2 things (one on the emblem, and one on the bar itself) on the emblem: > claim the orb every day to earn tft beta pass progress and the bar: > you'll be able to power up your orb of enlightenment by playing up to 5 games a day ALL this means is every day you play, you collect progress towards the beta pass. this is no different then any other event we have currently, and only 5 games a day will count towards said progress. you can play games past 5, just no progress counts towards the pass. there is no limit to how much you can play either stated or implied with that statement, just how much will count. again, your argument fell short because its not even meeting your own definition.
yeah sure. Once the game launches I'll come back to tell you so. You might want to look into how Clash tickets work too while we are at it (Clash isn't completely RNG based so I am not saying it is gambling mind you) Gatting game play time is Riot's new strategy to earn money
: its not gambling in any way shape or form for a few reasons: - NO CURRENCY IS INVOLVED. for any game to be legally considered a gamble, you have to set forth something of value or currency for a chance of something greater. being that playing the game requires nothing, you're immediately cut short of your argument there, as it doesn't meet the basic definition of a gamble. nothing was risked. - the game has no paywalls. the only thing you pay for is cosmetic, which has no effect on the game. - because there isnt exactly anything barring you from playing as much as you want, it isnt as predative as candy crush which uses a life based system.
wonrg, it doesn't have paywalls CURRENTLY. Next time you log in for a game, check the right side of the client when choosing TFT. It has an emblem that says "supercharged" or something like that. If you hover the mouse over it, it says with that thing active you can play up to five times a day.... The thing is now TFT is in Beta and Riot wants as much people playing and adopting the game as possible, as well as balancing it. Once that is done the paywall will come down
Kanzler (NA)
: Gambling involves actual currency being risked for the chance at reward. Now I haven't even looked at TFT so correct me if I'm wrong, but just having an RNG element does not make something gambling. Many children's games have random elements. Card games, board games, etc. Loot boxes, however, are a plague.
it is gambling with extra steps, the reward being dopamine instead of actual money. what really has me worried is the fact that the game mode is gonna be locked behind pay walls a la candy crush. that kind of business practice predates on people with mental instability to get their cash and it is not very moral in my opinion, specially if it is accesible to children and young teens who are still forming habits
Rioter Comments
: As someone who plays a fair amount of Yuumi, she should not exist
she is countered by hard engage supports like leona, naut, braum, alistar and morgana. She is not OP by any means, but I can see where you are comming from. As long as you have at least one competent player on your team she is generally good, specially if paired with juggernauts since she enables them a lot
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: June 14
Hey Meddler! g'day 3 quick things: * Can we get cho gath's and pyke's execute on Zed?, since he already has the shiruken * what is your stance on support items like ardent censer which enhance a champ's kit vs active/link item and their use rate by MMR level? * What is your design stance in shadow buffs/nerfs? Do they have benefits when seeing power perceived by players vs actual power (for example saying in patch notes you are gonna buff cinderhulk but not actually doing it for whatever reason)
: Taric counters AD assassins like Qiyana
I think Lulu is a better counter, her W completely ROFLSTOMPS any assassin/diver that wants to get on your AD carry face, and her ULT also stops them in their tracks. For me taric is better at team fights where you want to hard engage and stuff like that
: btw someone suggested some changes on surrenderat20 comm section ( https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/99f11f5f67371728ea07414e7c6e10157c69d49dd3d3fce8172ee931343f7cbc.png ) , and honestly I can say it fit her much better and looks less like she's having a wig made of dog hair. (I do not really know like what dog breed her hairstyle remind me of, but im sure there is one with exactly that white fur style covering its body)
: Qiyana: Awesome visuals, but one big missed opportunity.
this is actually a good point. I don't really think that if a character draws inspiration for any particular culture they should represent said culture in a perfectly accurate way, but her hair style does seem very out of place
: Riot said it's a solo laner,next one will be a marksman. Jungle: *exists* {{item:3070}}{{item:3070}} {{item:3070}}
yeah I miss original junglers too. Last one was Ivern, so really the last original jungler was kayn, since Ivern's playstyle is so odd Icouldn't get into it myself
: So this is the solo lane assassin from the jungle, yes? Because she really isn't giving me that impression.
tbh it is really hard to het any sort of character or kit impression from the teaser. Would have to wait for the actual reveal, but yeah at least her clothing doesn't really communicate "assassin"... she look too similar to Sivir for me to picture as anything else other than an ADC

not for me, specially because the name of the region she is from is called Ixaocan. That word has very distinctive Mayan structure to it. Shurima already represents northern African cultures very well, so it makes sense for a new region to be something different (draw inspiration from other places to make it stand out)

but remember the more you consistently win the more your mmr goes up. Not everyone has the same winrate. Also the influx of players changes (total gamer population in ranked for a server) which changes mmr as well Also sorry I wasn't clear enough, but I need a recent game where that happened so I can look up the low rank match history to see what is going on. For example you could have gotten a smurf that was trolling, or premades, or a legitimate shitty roll of the dice with matchmaking, but unless this happens on a consistent basis I really don't see how it is a problem

The probem is that if your mmr in a certain division is too high cause you have won many games in a row, it matches you with shit players to make up for it, making it harder to win Then they should be using mmr to determine your ranking. :/ That’s the problem. They use mmr for matchmaking. But use this ranking system for some reason. So if you are going through say bronze and go on a huge winning streak, you suddenly get matched against gold players. So if I’m good enough to be matched with gold players. Why am I not just gold then? :/ You’re throwing me into gold games. But just saying “nah, you aren’t gold. Good luck”

If you had actual MMR showing up, it would change day to day depending on the player count flux and performance variation.

Lp on the other hand keeps track of your actual track climbing the ladder. > > On the other hand, I kinda agree placements are BS. They are in place because they make players be more engaged with ranked, since they keep you hooked trying to climb up. They are a buffer so you get to you actual max LP lower, as well as being a psychological incentive and means of achievement That the problem. This is how the match making works. 1. Look at mmr 2. Put people of similar mmr in game That’s really about it. So when I’m say. Silver, and getting matched with players who are platinum, it’s because we have similar mmr. So why in the fuck am I not platinum or why are they not silver? I can que with people in that big a rank discrepancy. Why can I be matched with them?
that is not how it works. For each lane it tried to pair people of similar MMR, then it tries to average both teams mmr so they have 50% win rate.
