: [GAMEPLAY] [9.19] "Show allied chat" disables itself after patching.
Team game where you can't talk to your team. Team game where company encourages teams to be shitty to each other. Pvp game that has skill brackets and match making (laughable but still) that encourages people to completely bypass the entire system. Sounds like the Trump of game companies. to me.

: I'm getting sick of these games that are determined by how just one lane goes
All they want to do is set up worlds. They don't care about anything else, they care about money. And money is fine and all, but when you don't give a shit about your customer base (because they sure as shit don't see us as anything other then just that; customers) then you have a problem. I figured in season 11 or 12 they may just rig the espots events, they're already trying to push what they want in them as is. That's the next step, and they don't at all seem to be above it.
: win 10 games, get like 2 super hard games, lose 10 games, then win 10 games again climbing is all about winning those few super hard games to show the system that u can actually carry. those are the only wins/losses that matter.

You shouldn't have to carry 4 people who are either tilted or just plain "bad" in order to prove you're better then your opponent. You should play well and be matched with people, on both teams, of (aprox) equal skill. I say "bad" because doesn't mean they're bad, just means they need to work on where they're at now and they're hitting rough games (or more then likely are trolls). It's a poor system that sets people up for failure, nothing more. Putting someone against people substantially above them, while grouping them with people that are below them isn't a way to find if they're good. It's a way to make the game unfun. Play people on the same level as you, if you win, you move up. If you loose, you stay/move down. The games should be even, not skewed in such a way to undermine the players.
: I hope Riot learns something from this season
As this newest patch proves, they could give a shit about any of us, they balance only for pro play and to set up the games so they can push who they want into pro play. They've become so scummy it's hard to think of them in any light other then that, at least to me. I'm disappointed in them as a company.

: No offense Riot, but your matchmaking system is absolute dog-shit.
That's what happens when you encourage people to bypass your matchmaking system and make multiple accounts to troll and smurf on.
: I always wished there would be a legacy game mode for a 10 year anniversary for the game where we could bring back some of the things that may have gotten a lot of players hooked on the game, like old summoners rift, pre reworked characters, old items, etc. A game mode that generate a sense of nostalgia for the game that some have been playing for a decade now would be an extremely good fit for the ten year anniversary of this game.
Like actually playing the game and not just dealing with smurfs and trolls and riot manipulating things to get what they want for esports and giving little care about the rest of the game/it's customers (because lets be honest, they only see us as customers and dollar signs now, we're not fans to them any more)
: 3 comeback victories
In the last few months I only remember having two games that felt like they where matched decently. Everything else has just been an absolute slaughter. I miss the days feeling like comebacks where possible, now I can't even see winning most games because of the shit matchmaking that keeps happening. Either my team is still learning what game we're playing, or the other team is confused on if they should attack the darkness or tank turrets for minions O.o I don't know why everything feels like it's become so much more abysmal, and seems to feel like it gets worse as we go forward, but I can tell you I miss when the games at least felt closer and I didn't have a troll or three in literally every game I play.
: What's the point of a ranked system in this game?
What's the point when the amount of trolls are so abundant and smurfing is allowed? Smurfing is the anti-thesis to the entire ranked system. Not to mention the worst match making of any game I can recall, giving out EA quality match making in most cases.
: Autofill would not be bad if it actually worked as intended. Getting autofilled in a 30 seconds queue is unacceptable and sadly... It happens! They could just make it so you can't get autofilled until queue hasn't hit X time which could be at least something that range from 3 to 5 minutes. I don't think people would actually be that mad to wait 3-5 minutes to get in champion select. You hope you can find a game in 3 minutes, if it doesn't happen you get autofilled as fast as possible and then you are immune for the next few games if it happens. My queue timers never go past 3 minutes.
How about an option where we put how long we're willing to wait until being auto filled? Don't wanna be autofilled? You're the one waiting longer in a que, and it won't effect others nearly as bad. Then again, the could give a shit about any of us since we aren't e-sports or match making would be somewhere within reasonable limits and every game wouldn't have a troll, a hamster and in some cases your bonus AFK. Not to mention the absolute litering of smurfs fucking up the entire match making system being 100% acceptable. So I guess autofill just kinda fits their theme of "We're a company, we don't need to care about our customers, only our e-sports." Kinda like EA or Comcast.

So...it's less of a game and more of a waiting to get fucked around since there isn't really anything to learn, it's just watching and hoping RNG doesn't fuck me. Even if I'm ahead, assassins delete me. Build a decent comp? Get fucked, here are some 3 star champs to loose to. Not doing ass? Oh play against this person with 1-2 combined items on each champ.

A must try game you should not get angry at, just try and try again. I recommend the 1st and the third one as they are directly connected, and the second one is basically those anime filler episodes that are just there for almost no reason other than to give you something new to experience **Sekiro** - same as Dark Souls, by the same people that made Dark Souls, you must learn it's core in order to achieve success, and you are also rewarded for every hard thing you manage to finish, the difference is that it has a more strategic approach to it, and the story isn't unoriginal, but rather very interesting, just like Dark Souls's **The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth** - great early zelda-like game, that is also tough but as you progress you learn the core and unlock more powerful and game changing characters that help you on your religious journey. Every item you pick up doesn't just add-up, it can combine with the others. That is the list of the games that, I think, could help you on staying relaxed, thinking, and rewarding you for the hard work, just like league mostly does Some of these games like the first 3 i mentioned, are getting sequels pretty soon, so it would be a perfect time to immerse yourself into them But some already have sequels as you might have noticed And some can let you put a lot of time into them, like Sekiro, Dark Souls, The Binding Of Isaac, Minecraft, so they could maybe, actually, be permanent replacements for League I hope you read this, and that I didn't bore you to death I hope my list helps you on your journey, but we all know that you might come back one day, if you ever leave

Team mates, especially in elo hell unless you’re a smurf typically. Two - three people feed and it doesn’t matter how good you are.

Riot will never punish smurfs. If anything, they'll reward them so that they keep playing. Riot only cares about their bottom dollar and high elo play. I know it's an old thing to say, but it's honestly how I feel, otherwise there's a host of shit that would be different down here in the depths of elo hell.

: Block a Spell with Banshee's? You get hit with Luden's, Scorch, and Comet/Aery anyway.
As someone who semi often uses Ludens's, Comet and Aery...I find that to be stupid af. The spell was blocked, the after effect shouldn't take place.
: Want to get out of a match without dodging yourself? Pick Yuumi
I love Yuumi and provided I have a team that doesn't feed 3-5 deaths in the first 5 minutes it's usually decently solid until everyone forgets what game we're playing.
: It's insane to me that Diamond was so much easier to get than climbing out of silver.
I'm 100% low elo is the absolute hardest shit to deal with if you aren't really good at certain champs and hyper carry all of your games. I'm not amazing and shit, but fuck my life with being stuck because I just can't do shit in my ranked games when most of my team is still learning champs or the absolute basics and most of the people I'm against play with some degree of skill. Or at the very least work TOGETHER. I see teamwork on my side about 1 in 15 games or so.
: Every game has a major skill gap between players at the same elo and it is out of control.
Don't forget that they dont' want to FF either, and they usually have a buddy who also won't FF because "they're having fun." I'm all for fun, but not at the expense of the rest of your team...go play bots.
FkValeRly (EUW)
: new player trap
They probably do that shit to encourage smurfing, which is unhealthy af for the game overall.
: Why bother queueing up if you are just going to call GG at 3 min?
Same reason people bring champs they have no experience with into ranked games. Because they're garbage human beings and Riot doesn't care about a decent community, only about the money and higher tier play. I hate this game most of the time because of the people I'm forced to play with and the quality of players on both teams being so grossly skewed, not even CLOSE to evenly matched. People will do this because Riot honestly doesn't care and there's no repercussion for working against your team or being complete garbage because you brought a new champ into ranked or because you're just a shitty person.

League is a team game if you don't want to work with a team you are griefing. So if im anivia mid, I cant have blue buff at all unless the xin zhao approves it? Think about all the nuances involved in that. What about xerath mid? Zed mid? When does it go from okay to not okay? Third blue buff? Fourth? Is it still only the jungler's buff? Who exactly is allowed to take it, and when? Would you rather a 7-0-1 mid ap mage take it, or a feeding rammus? Would it be against the rules? Think of the IMPLICATIONS. The complications of enforcing rules around that. Sometimes it IS for the good of the team buddy. If I know I can carry better than my jungler, I'm gonna take what I need in order to carry. Whether I'm urgot top, or anivia mid, im taking that open buff thats been sitting unused by our shitty jungler for 5 minutes. Sometimes champs dont even matter in low ELO. If I play better and a blue buff will benefit me, I can do more with it than a 0-5 xin. Again, think of all the implications. Sometimes the only punishment for bad decisions, is losing the game. Thats kinda how it should be, unless Riot wants to enforce a very specific meta game where playing a certain way is mandatory. In which case, they need it to be built in. They need to code it. How can an ADC take a blue buff? Because its coded that way. If they didnt want it to work, they could code it in that a marksman cant have blue buff. Banning people for playing the game sub-optimally is always gonna be bad for business.
Maliciously, not to actually help the team... Would you take the buff knowing it would put your jungler behind? Would you take the buff out of smite? I'm assuming both of those answers are 'no.' I'm talking about people following me around and snatching mobs from me I'm actively in the middle of killing because they didn't get their way.
