: it wasn't a logical sentence or metaphor not trying to be mean it just made no sense playing league isnt gonna make you land in a ditch on the side of I-55
The meaning is that disruptive or abusive behavior is not ok just because others can mute it. Each individual is responsible for their own behavior, and reporting is there to help prevent this behavior in the future for everyone else that play with them, while muting is there as a temporary and immediate reprieve for a single game (even though it gets in the way of useful communicating too).
: I did I told them to highlight where I went against TOS or Summoner's code or whatever and they did not they just said "I know its frustrating dealing with teammates acting aggressive towards you" the thing is I don't care about that. I never report for toxicity because I can just mute. I know it's an amazing feature never used by the people who really need it
I understand where you're coming from, but Mute is just there so players can stop further issues (usually after someone has already become a problem) so they can focus on the game. It doesn't stop the person from continuing to be a problem for others, and it's on that player to fix their behavior, not on everyone else to avoid them. Imagine if a kid sat in his house pointing a laser beam in driver's eyes as they pass by; is it the driver's responsibility to wear sunglasses to stop it, or is that kid responsible for his behavior and needs to be stopped and held accountable? Of course the answer is that the kid is at fault. Drivers who have never passed by the house before can't be expected to wear sunglasses, nor should the drivers who know be forced to impede their vision on account of someone else's abusive behavior. Kids who play with lasers is why we report people, but also keep sunglasses handy just in case we need to mute them :3 (yes I know that is not *actually* a logical sentence)

If what the others said didn't explain it, True Damage by definition cannot be reduced. It is countered by more health/shields, not resistances or damage reduction effects.

: Warding Tactics?
Vision Wards in bushes are intended to maintain vision of an enemy going in there. If it's not necessary for combat purposes, you can place the ward further out to gain better coverage. Control Wards will almost always go in a bush because it's too easy to kill them otherwise, though in some cases you'll place them outside of a bush to clear enemy Vision Wards when Oracle's Lens isn't appropriate/available. In other words, it's a case-by-case basis. Sometimes the optimal placement cannot be done due to safety reasons (no vision of some enemies that may be nearby); weigh the risks of putting your wards in the best spots, and if there's a decent chance you'll get caught putting it there, opt for a less optimal spot or ask for an escort.
: bans in general
I think that champion bans in ARAM is not a healthy way to make the mode more enjoyable or fair. All it really does is guarantee the most OP picks are never seen; that is simply sweeping the dirt under the rug. If the champion is *that* bad to play against, then it should be fixed so that people can still enjoy playing with or against it. Yes, the bans hurt ARAM accounts which were inherently unfair. However, simply unlocking all champions would put a damper on that unfair practice too. Unlock all champs and make mechanical or numbers adjustments to the unfairly OP picks.

: Boycott ARAM!
Bans are not healthy for ARAM, imo as someone with about 3k ARAM games and 2k MMR. My reasoning is that players will simply ban what is OP, whether they like to play the champion or not. This feels bad for everyone when you have to use bans in that way; if the champion is too strong, it should be tweaked accordingly, not benched indefinitely by the players. Furthermore, I believe opening all champions to players helps alleviate some of the need to ban, by increasing the chance for players to get everything else (in other words, ARAM accounts or those that simply don't bother buying many). All champions unlocked also gives incentive for newer players to join the mode.

You might have played her on the Free Rotation, though. The sales that show the champions base portrait in the little circle at the bottom are a visual indicator that the sale includes that champion because you don't own it.

I think the main issue is that the Rune doesn't get "used", it gets abused; in other words, it's only for those who can use it far more effectively than anyone else. I've always been open to using it for Nami, but Aery is a much safer option which is effective whether I'm ahead or behind.
Rioter Comments
: Post MSI Gameplay Improvements
How about for Hunter's Potion, it just upgrades from the Refillable Potion automatically after a certain level or at killing a certain amount of Large Monsters? Are you guys actually happy with your supposed "temporary" fixes to Spellthief's? It hurts actual Support because non-Supports used it. You keep doing this to them and give the role the lowest priority for real changes.
dregz (OCE)
: How do I hide this UI element?
You can't, it is part of Rengar's passive and it used for allow the player to know who to hunt. A few other champions have similar mechanics. With Kindred you select a specific target to hunt by clicking it, with Neeko you choose which ally to transform into, there might be others but I can't think of them off the top of my head rn.
Kaysherr (NA)
: First suspension ever, but I'm still irked about how the punishments are dealt out...
All reports go through the Instant Feedback System (in other words, an automated review) and a punishment would be issued within minutes. If you've had chat restrictions before this, it would explain why you were issued a suspension instead of another chat restriction, because they escalate to a temp then permaban if your behavior doesn't improve sufficiently over a significant period of time.

This is probably "ano niku", or "that meat" in Japanese, which is a depiction of [an unknown] meat in manga/anime. It isn't a natural way to prepare any meat in real life.
: Can I Get Rerollls For "My Shop" For Legitimate Reasons?
Unfortunately no. The Your Shop deals aren't necessarily champions that you main, but it is based on the play style of those that you frequent; in other words, if you play a lot of Kalista you might get deals for other ADC's. If you don't own the champion the deal will apply to the RP cost of that champion as well (you can get the champ first and that cost will be removed from the deal).
Aerothal (NA)
: ghost porro not working correctly
This tripped me up too XD They actually changed all the Runes on that line a little, and Ghost Poro spawns differently; instead of dropping it at will like a ward in bushes, they spawn when your Wards die natural deaths (time out). Check the patch notes for full details.
: Is there any human intervention when it comes to reports like that? I'd actually like to report them in Support...
You can certainly report through a ticket, as zPOOPz linked. Most bans for 3rd party app abuse would the result of red flags the automated system triggers, and you should definitely use the in-game report too, but some probably fall through the cracks and a manual report couldn't hurt.
: Ban for using AutoHotKey?
If that's what they're using it for, it's absolutely not allowed and they can be banned for it. Any automation of gameplay is not allowed.
Mortdog (NA)
: ARAM Balance Update Thread
I'm enjoying the changes. However, I think the new item "Mariner's Vengeance" can be kind of OP, allowing someone like Master Yi to easily penta your team and cause a quick loss where no other item and most champions have anywhere near that level of impact. This causes you to permaban Yi and champions that will similarly do this, which I don't think is healthy for the system or the players. TL;DR - Maybe let's remove that item? Additionally, please unlock all champs. Thank you.

Promo Helper wins only go up to Gold 1.
: Can I get banned for stating my opinion?
I think maybe that falls on a lower end of toxicity, but obviously it's being said to incite arguments and insult people randomly. If you do this frequently I would not be surprised if you were issued a punishment either by the system or through a manual review. If you think making general statements not directed at a person is a loophole to get away with being rude and starting fights, it's not as clever as you think.

Lapis (OCE)
: Tips for balancing offensive and defensive play as a support?
Mostly just poke ADC when they are going for a last hit on CS (so probably will choose the minion over hitting you), or if possible, bait and dodge the enemy Support so you can hit them with minimal return damage (or otherwise attack them when their CD's aren't up). Sometimes not poking really *is* the right choice. Let's say I'm playing Nami or Janna, and they have a Sona. Sona will always go Spellthief's Edge and her poke is both strong and nearly impossible to miss; I just go Ancient Coin and attack the ADC when it's safe but otherwise stay away from Sona so she gets starved for gold. If you ever think the matchup is so bad for you that you cannot go even or win, just pick up Ancient Coin and don't let the enemy poke you constantly for Spellthief's gold. If they are a Relic Shield user you can probably take your pick of Coin or Spellthief's.

I don't think the number of Prestige skins is the issue, but the individual cost. The name "Prestige" rubs ppl the wrong way because there's nothing "prestigious" about dumping lots of money into it, but that's just a name idc; the problem is that they are just skins, only high quality chromas at that. Ultimates get SO much more work and give so much more, yet cost a fraction of the price and we get less than 1 a year lmao? Ultimate is the prestigious skin tier, these are legit chromas and we're encouraging Riot to put less effort and charge more.
