: Why is this character so hard to like?
You can use some examples from the movie to see how it's all in the writing. According to the movie she's smart, funny, kind, heroic, and has tons of friends. But is she ever seen being any of those things? No. Instead it's almost entirely just exposition from another character talking about how great she is. She isn't written to do anything. They just tell you she has good qualities and has the character do literally nothing to show it.

Gotta love how Braum and Ziggs are obviously candy but eve just looks like a generic anime girl. If you showed me just the eve art and asked me the theme I wouldn’t be able to tell you.

: Leona passive Idea
The idea of Leona being able to proc her own passive before has been tested before and it always results in her being incredibly broken. Even at just 50% effectiveness it gives her way too much damage/waveclear in a solo lane or gives her too efficient jungle clearing. She honestly just needs a new passive all together.

That's your extrapolation, it could also refer to the negative and toxic atmosphere that usually ensues when you have a co-ed environment filled with hormonal teenaged outcasts in which none are very good at communication skills, have a propensity to brash generalization at younger ages, and it's no secret that kids tend to stir up drama when billy and timmy can't keep their hormones in check and start getting at eachother's throats to fight over Sally. Actually in Vanilla WoW a lot of guilds had restrictions on women because they had a larger pool of dudes to draft from and too many of them couldn't keep their shit together around girls but regardless of skill level the numbers forced these guilds to recruit from the dudes on the servers to effectively cut out said drama that way they could focus on having fun and ignore the lame ass 15 year old boys sexually harassing women, having to gkick, then having another one pop up 2 weeks later. This isn't sexism, it's an unfortunate fact, co-ed environments often do bring up drama. There is nothing evil or sexist saying you want to go to an environment that isn't co-ed. Woman's rights advocates do this all of the time, having concerts and events heavily implied to be for women only in order to avoid the annoyances of that one guy who can't stop trying to get it in. Male only workplaces and other male only/male dominates spaces are usually extremely different in terms of co-ed social environments as well as female social environments. There is definitely more trash talk, more arguments, and yet there is an itch to be scratched there. Talking shit to people over video games is considered fun by literally everyone i've played with since i started in 2012 with the exception of female gamers. I do not claim this is a definitive part of human existence or that all men are X and all women are Y but I will say that all human and social behavioural studies on this have indicated that men and women socialize differently amongst themselves then with eachother and co-ed adds a whole third dynamic which is often a lot of compromises. now I mean... OP could just go into 5 man games with disc groups and stop typing.. would work better tbh without trying to manifest his preferences on everyone else. And I got no problem playing with girls, hell a decent amount of the people I play with on a regular basis are girls. I can say that the most toxic player i've ever played with was a girl as well as probably 2 of my top 5 of all time were girls. All i'm saying is that his statement was not out of line with the underlying subjective moral belief structure that the boards rules draft inspiration from, I've laid it out in the language of these rules, and then further explained it in my own subjective train of thought. If you still think it's rooted in sexism then you're allowing bias to overcome you... again.. because i've seen you do this time and time again on the boards and it's quite offputting and ruins everyone's fun convos

Women have every right to be a part of gaming. His statement tells them he wants them out. If he is being nostalgic about something he is implying that women have made gaming worse. Both are sexist statements. "I don't hate women, but I wish they weren't gamers" will always be a sexist statement regardless of how you try to spin it. If he wanted to be nostalgic about trash talking people on xbox live in 2009 he had no business trying to blame women for why he's not allowed to do that now on League of Legends.

Those aren't really comparable. OP stated he wished less females were gamers. His opening doesn't matter if he's just going to immediately contradict that statement. He was not being welcoming to women he was directly telling them he wanted them to stop being gamers. And there isn't going to be any thought provoking discussion from "I want less women in gaming." OP may try to spin the story but in the end saying something like "I don't hate women, but" immediately followed by a sexist statement doesn't mean you're not being sexist.

All this would accomplish is making junglers overpowered. The trade offs of CC, mobility, and clear speed are hard to get right. Making jungle clearing brain dead would do nothing but cement a jungler meta.

They also banned two commentators. Which is the one thing that makes this really stink. Why fire them? Only 2 reasons come to my mind. 1 they knew what he was going to do and let him do it. 2 they knew he had stepped over the line and did not stop him. Both of which would be grounds for termination from any job that covers a high profile event. I will wait to cast judgment on any party here until I get more facts.

: Meanwhile, Epic games directly under tencent and 40% stock held by them said "It's ok to voice political opinions on their gaming platform or scenes and even creators work". Even Riot is doing better with 100% stock held. Saying "its a difficult issue and we are trying to keep it not offensive to both parties" and keep normal ground. Blizzard is not even China and has like 5% stock held. Measly compared to these two. Seeing what other companies are handling. Blizzard just dug up a deep grave and lined gasoline in and blew up the fireworks. Also as an Asian, I'm saying this a lot. The current US president is trying to search for a way to keep Chinese money and influence off American/foreign property to the minimum.

: True damage and %health damage is dumb.
True damage and health percentage damage is supposed to counter tanks. Tank metas are utter cancer when they become unkillable. The big tank meta is one of the worst metas the game has ever seen in it's 10 year lifespan. Now obviously health percentage damage and true damage can get out of control but these things exist to counter your build.

Because the fact is that that's much worse. So deal with it. Gameplay needs to be balanced around high skill, because the variance inherent in gameplay of lower-skill players means that the balance doesn't actually matter as much for them.

I'm not sure what point you think is being made here because you seem to have no idea what's going on in this game. The game is mess because solo queue and pro player are so vastly different you're practically looking at two different games entirely and the balance team only cares about one of these things. Pro play. They don't care whether or not the average player, the millions of people playing this game, are having fun. And it's a problem when the majority of people who play your game are giving you feedback saying they no longer enjoy the game due to how you balance it. They just want to keep making the pros happy.
