Trolls shouldn't get banned. They just make new accounts and troll 50-70 more games before they finally get in trouble for it and get banned again and make another new account. Trolls should have their MMR taken down to 0.

I'm pretty sure she has four ears. The better to hear you with, my dear. Granted, no one has ever actually seen the ones that would be under her hair...

It is absolutely hilarious that people keep banning Morgana because she got a VGU and a nerf while Vayne and Riven are on the loose under the current circumstances.

I don't get why people keep saying Yasuo is a high skillcap champion. He's completely braindead. Mostly because his W is a sphere of invulnerability to everything that can be used as a panic button whenever he might get punished for playing super aggressively.
Rioter Comments
: Why does rank still have duo q when there is flex ?
Yeah, get duos out of solo queue. Why were they ever there in the first place? Let flex be the garbage mode where everyone gets boosted by smurfs.
: what is zed
They really need to give everyone mana if it's simply impossible to balance the game without it. Maybe then Katarina would be allowed to do damage again.
: Smurfing is a real issue man
In every single questionnaire that I've got from Riot in the past 3 or so years, I have told them that smurfing is the main reason why the game inaccessible to new players in its current state. It's one thing if they act like they can't do anything about it because it would pose problems for the business model when players are annoyed over what smurfing does to matchmaking. You'd think they'd be more concerned about the competitive integrity of ranked gameplay, but if that's more than they can afford to worry about, then... okay. Alright. Whatever. When it comes the fact that new players INVARIABLY have a, horrible, disgusting experience thanks to them, however, they need to get off their asses and do something if they want to save their game.

: > Even before the game begins, anyone in sliver or higher with a very low mastery level is far more likely to be a smurf than someone who is really that new with the champion Yeah OK, fair enough. That still doesn't mean the smurfs are deciding the outcome, though. If you're Gold on your main, Gold on your smurf, that doesn't change anything. And don't YOU ever go 5 and 0 in the first 10 minutes on your main account? Being 5-0 doesn't prove anything.

Being 5-0 doesn't prove anything. Sometimes, yes. Usually after people've given me shit for having 770K mastery with Morgana but still being silver and asked me if I'm an e-girl streamer.
: Why is it that when I feed, no one carries me...
I'm pretty sure it's related to how a teammate going 0/10 during laning is just another day on the rift, but if YOU are ever 0/3 at 15 minutes it's the END OF THE FUCKING WORLD and your whole team wants to surrender early.

They only have a few thousand mastery (or only a few hundred in many cases) but are 5-0 in the first 10 minutes. Even before the game begins, anyone in sliver or higher with a very low mastery level is far more likely to be a smurf than someone who is really that new with the champion they're using in a ranked game.
: (Poll) Old or New visual of Morgana
The old model had become vestigial and definitely needed an overhaul (she was only 4 feet tall and didn't have legs FFS) but she came across as more of an arch-nemesis with the wings from her shoulders - regal, but corrupted. Now she seems kind of like just another miscellaneous creature. Like everyone else, apparently, I question some of their design choices for the update. Oh well. It could be worse. I'm disappointed in particular with the new exiled skin and don't think I'll be using it much anymore. Blackthorn looks pretty cool now at least.

That's what Rito does when players want them to ban trolls and AFKers. Instead, they ban people who go on record saying naughty words to create the impression that they're in some degree of control.

LOL the other team banned Morgana. Wondering when it'll be safe to play her again. Hopefully everyone will be too busy banning Kayle.

I think all the lore updates there've been lately reflect a stunning ignorance of how the in-game universe is supposed to operate according to the original lore.
Xavanic (NA)
: So model update = ban worthy?
I'd been noticing an uptick in Morgana bans even before the Morgana/Kayle update became imminent. And I'd been doing what I could to get as many ranked games in as I could with Morgana before all hell broke loose. This too shall pass. All the people playing Morgana just because of the VGU will be mediocre with her, she'll start to be considered weak, and people won't bother banning her anymore. I'll be playing lots of Leona, Janna, and Soraka in the mean time.
: Almost every single game in silver gold has at least one smurf
Well, in the past Riot would be all "Maybe they're smurfs, maybe someone's just having a good game, who knows? Doesn't it really affect that many games?" Now we have those flippable cards and it couldn't be more obvious. I'm surprised Riot went through with those when they ought to have predicted how easy it'd be to see that smurfs determine the outcome of pretty much every single game.

I'm surprised Rito didn't put the kibosh on those flippable cards when they realized how easy it'd be to spot smurfs and prove that it really is happening ALL THE TIME. Or did they seriously not even think of that?

: Exiled Morganna
I'm not really sure what they were trying for either with the cyberpunky hairdo and the tattoos, and this charcoal colored horizontal line across the eyes certainly seems to be in lately. I do like the dark grey accents on the costume, but I don't think I'm going to consider exiled "my" skin anymore the way I used to. Might do blackthorn more now that it looks like that one is getting a big upgrade.

: Hey Riot.. about the reworked Morgana skins...
I was also shocked that Teemo doesn't come out of the cauldron anymore. I thought that was the whole point of the skin being tied to the Teemoing event. But, I'm happy with it overall. Planning to run betwitching and blackthorn (huge upgrade!) most of the time now that I'm a bit........ perplexed by the new exiled skin.
: What does "They're" mean in this phrase?
I interpreted it to mean the boards themselves. I don't disagree that you typically see people complaining about literally everything here, so it's not like someone can easily identify a handful of issues. There are some thoughtful comments but there's no way to guarantee those will get noticed enough to start garnering enough upvotes to come to anyone's attention. There's also no guarantee that the input that would be most helpful will get said upvotes and become a prominent and easily noticed thread. When you consider all the bugs and problems that get through the PBE and need hotfixed once it goes live, though, you've got to wonder if they're idea of "great" is nobody ever raising any concerns and just being happy with everything because they don't know better.
: Can riven just mana costs?
They should just give everyone mana and forget about energy or manaless champs if it makes the game easier to balance. Both no-mana and energy seem vestigial at this point anyway.
: Smurfs
Probably, if they decided it wasn't allowed anymore, they wouldn't have any way to enforce it. Still, they need to do something in order to save the competitive integrity of their game. Matchmaking is bad enough even before you add smurfs and the people who they've elo-boosted to the mix.

Mc Raton (NA)
: Can't wait for Kayle/Morg rework..
It sounds like Morgana's kit will be pretty much the same, but I just hope she won't be lame and have some convoluted story that tries way too hard. I'm fine with evil, rebellious, hypocritical (she decries Kayle's tryanny, then finds the most tyrannical faction on Runeterra the most to her liking) Morgana.
: Hello, Let's Tackle Competitive Play :)!
Eventually they're going to have to stop hiding behind the "the only thing that matters is which nexus falls first" non-sequitur and start having LP gains and losses depend more on individual performance. Nobody is saying that doesn't decide the game. They're trying to focus on the far more nuanced matter of what needs to happen in order to make the enemy nexus more likely to fall, and how some players contribute far more than others toward creating these conditions but, through no fault of their own, are overruled by others who detract rather than contribute. The metrics are already in place.
GripaAviara (EUNE)
: Insane skill difference in ranked
Matchmaking has always been bad, but it's definitely far worse now than ever before. Duos are the biggest problem. You get higher level players using smurf accounts to elo-boost their duo partners or a weaker player might duo in a friend who is in completely over their head making it effectively 3 v 5 from the beginning.
