: How long do you think it'll be before this auto chess mode is cancelled
League has been pure garbage since Preseason 8. I might actually return to play some Tactics.

The "scaling game" doesn't exist post Preseason 8. Griefing and intentionally feeding is a bannable offense.

: League is evolving into garbage
Dude... League has been complete garbage since Preseason 8. * 540 days ago or * 1 year, 5 months, 24 days or * 17 months, 24 days Which means, League has been garbage for: * 46,656,000 seconds * 777,600 minutes * 12,960 hours * 540 days * 77 weeks and 1 day

: Active players in ranked dropped?
I may not be good at math, but I can assure you that a lot of the comeptitive/casual player-base who have dealt with Riot's ineptitude for years have moved on from League. Season 8 was the straw that broke the camel's back. All of the unnecessary changes for the sake of change. All of the RNG and overexcessive damage implemented into the game reduced the quality of gameplay to the point where the game is a complete joke... It's a total mess. League is not competitive anymore, folks. It's a casual game masked as a competitive game and Riot's trying their damn hardest to cater toward new/casual players. However, they are failing. Even casual players don't like this game.
: > With the roll-back on roll-based ranks coming along, it's about time we consider removing Auto-Fill in general when it comes to ranked game modes. Was Autofill added for role-based ranks? No, it wasn't. So it's not going anywhere. If you want autofill gone, then you lose position selection. Which means we go back to pick order...aka everyone is autofilled

Which means we go back to pick order...aka everyone is autofilled The main issue is the low population and long queue times when playing Ranked. So, of course Auto-fill will most likely never be dropped, but your reasoning is invalid. Currently, a player selects two preferred roles and not get auto-filled. That actually occurs often. Remember Team Builder? There was no auto-fill when Team builder was implemented.

Relax, guy. Just role with the punches.

: Sylas ult is bad champion design
Did you personally post this thread on the Rant section, or did a mod move it? You wrote legitimate reasons why Sylas is a horrible champion design that caters heavily toward RNG which destroys competitive integrity. This post should be displayed on the front page of Gameplay.
: When you totally fail your combo, but somehow get the kill anyway
... somehow? This is post pre-season 8. You don't need to do any combos.
: It was a good effort
It was not a good effort. It was designed to mask the population problem League has been facing since the infamous Season 8 was launched. Less people are playing this game, so Auto-fill is rampant. They also wanted to hold new/casual player's hands by putting the auto-filled players against lower skilled players. So it was a strategic and deceptive strategy from Riot.

: I think that you have it a little off, it's not that league isn't competitive anymore. It's almost exclusively competitive even, just look at riot's behaviors and the kind of people that still play the game, don't you dare try to play something that doesn't have the competitive advantage, else face the wrath of every player in your game, 3 players from next game, the announcer, and fucking baron (probably). The term "casual" has never managed to settle on a definition, but I think it's fair to say that you can see an audience that is best catered to by the game's current design. Unfortunately it's too small of a demographic and most players are bleed over from one of the other two target demographics the game has historically had. The committed audience and the Noncommittal audience. ___ Committed: Learned every champion, have internal timers on base CDs for every champion, knows skills/details about the game that have since been added to the game's UI (e.g. buff/dragon spawn timers). These players aren't necessarily "competitive" playing ranked mode, but they do enjoy the game enough to want to learn as much as they can about it. Noncommittal: Has a hand full of champions that they know well enough to win matches, have a good amount of experience in their role/class but don't know the first thing about, likely, supports (except for maybe Pyke), wants quick games, these are the kinds of players who will frequently use 3rd party software to pick their build, and really just care about the excitement in a match rather than the details about the game. ___ Sadly a lot of the noncommittal players (as the name implies) are quick to jump over to other genres that offer more of what they're looking for, but especially the ones who aren't familiar with PC FPS games aren't likely to make that transition to the current action trend of BRs. But, I just realized I'm rambling again, in an attempt to make a game that catered to both these committed and noncommittal players, riot ended up with a game that best fits players who are noncommittal and competitive... Players who don't care to learn a ton about the game outside of what will get them those sweet sweet W's and as few L's as possible. This specific category of players isn't very large, because it's nearly impossible to make a cohesive game that only requires very narrow knowledge about the game. Yet (according to a lot of people who play the game) the ranked system tries to enforce a 50% win rate anyway, so good luck with that {{sticker:sg-lulu}}
"It's almost exclusively competitive even,..." give me a break. League is far from competitive. It's a mess. A total joke. During the start of Preseason 8, do you really believe Riot was thinking about competitive integrity when they introduced the abomination that is Zoe? One shotting champions across the screen with RNG in her kit requires skill? Riot's "balance team" did nothing to address the excessive damage from Zoe for 4+ months. Do you believe Riot was thinking about competitive integrity when they implemented Klepto in their "Runes Reforged" system? What about when a developer who is a hard stuck silver Jungler decides to implement an RNG based Plant gimmick in the game. Was Riot thinking about competitive integrity? Riot wanted to cater toward new/casual people, period. There's no doubt about it.
: I am officially uninstalling this game, because I am a diamond player who can't escape Bronze.
Riot did exactly what 343i did with Halo 4. Turn a competitive gaming franchise into a casual shi*fest. Season 8's "Runes Reforged" System was designed for casual players. The skill gap was reduced due to the over excessive damage, overpowered/overloaded runes, RNG elements, and overloaded kits from new/updated champions. You can clearly tell that Riot wanted to introduce new players into the game with their "Noobs" campaign ads. * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fyq844xq2yY * Low tier animated, "What is League of Legends" ads * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brNGDA5R048 * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gnsq2lseMk0 * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwERJ6qJPuc * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Z0CqQEHWxc * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ayKbeS4chcI&t=12s * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vo7jS88LZc8 * Forcing Pros to talk about being a noob * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvSeRqntf7U League is not competitive anymore. It's a casual game masked as a competitive game. The gameplay is a total mess. The sad truth is that the game is not fun for casuals, too. So, that's why people are leaving. During the late mid season 8 * Ghostcrawler steps out of Lead Position * Meddler takes over Lead Position * Meddler and his goons admit the state of League is garbage. The matchmaking is awful at the moment because Riot is forced to rely on the "Auto-fill" system and tried to cover up the population issues by implementing the Positional Ranking for Season 9. A system that also helps hold casual players hands.

: Why is this getting downvoted? Nice to hear you and your friend are enjoying League.
: No one cares but i'm not having fun playing this shit
Dump league and hop on RuneScape. It's such a better gaming experience.
: Ranked 2019 — /dev Update #3
Positional ranking is horrible. It was implemented because of the population drop from Season 8. They had to rely on the auto-fill system. It was also designed to hold players hands when they get autofilled. So, it was a deceptive and strategic move by RIot. League turned into a casual game. There's nothing competitive about it. Season 8's "Runes Reforged" system was designed for casual players with all of the over-excessive damage, RNG elements, and overloaded kits from new/updated champions. The sad thing about this is that casual players don't enjoy the game either. RIot is consistently making bad gameplay design. Not only that, the balance team is non-existent. So, they tried to mask the problem by creating "Clash." However, that failed. Then they tried to make a permanent Battle Royale mode for the casuals. I don't know what happened to that. The state of League of legends during Season 8 was so bad that the existing player base who were both competitive and casuals stopped playing the game. Which is why Riot implemented positional rankings because they knew that they are going to be forced to rely on the "auto-filled" system. * Ghostcrawler leaves Lead Designer and is relocated to a new Riot Games' project. * Meddler gets the Lead position * Meddler and his goons admit that the state of League is garbage * Tyler1 was gaining so much Twitch viewers, Riot had no choice but to unban him to help bring new players into League. * missions are forcing players to watch their LCS/World live streams and vods Riot has been in panic mode since Season 8.
: RIP Gameplay+
Wait, it's gone? Finally. That was a very flawed forum discussion. Why create a discussion without down voting? If the suggestions on gameplay are horrible, a down vote is needed, period.

There's over-excessive damage with one shot abilities, overpowerd/overloaded runes, new/updated champions with over loaded kits, RNG elements, and stuns that last for 24/7. Well, I stay on the boards because I have invested so much money into League, I feel like it's my job to try to improve the game by either letting Riot know the game is horrible. Or, let people know the game is horrible so they don't have to deal with the garbage.

: Returning soon
Why return to this mess? League is a joke. It's been horrible since Preseason 8. I recommend staying far away from this game.
: @RiotAugust Those "useless" Boards are a part of the community that puts bread on your table.
: Playing the reworked Mordekaiser ruined the current one for me
: What the fuck? Get rid of splash right now.
Although I'm not in favor of positional ranking, splash needs to stay while it's enabled and the demoting needs to happen. Do you actually expect Riot to hold players hands when they under perform on their auto-filled role? Riot is already holding players hands by putting them close to their rank.
: League is a fun game
Change the title of the post. Riot doesn't understand sarcasm.
: imagine still defending riot over clash
Clash was nothing but a mask to hide the fact that League has been a casual sh*tfest since preseason 8... The skill gap is non existent with over-excessive damage, RNG elements, and overloaded kits from new/updated champions. The game is mess. It's a total joke.
: If given the choice to move to another competitive game I would.
League is not competitive anymore. It's a casual game masked as a competitive game.
: Can I get some tips for rank s9
build damage and click on enemy first.
: I finally quit. ggs league of legends
Dump League and hop on Runescape. It's such a better gaming experience.
: Okay, apparently we can get demoted while playing on other roles
Let's be real here, folks. The positional rankings is a garbage system designed to justify their garbage auto-filled system and to cater toward casual players. It's a system that holds players hands. Players are already playing against lower ranked players when they're playing on "autofilled" roles. Do you really expect Riot to hold players hands even more by not demoting players who consistently underperform?

: What do people think about the pace? (poll)
I've said this before, and I'll say this again. Buffing towers is just a Bandaid solution to the problem. Riot already proved this because they completely changed/buffed towers during Preseason 9. The problem is over-excessive amounts of damage. There's damage everywhere. There's RNG everywhere. It's a total mess. The game is a joke.

: "Learn to cs and you'll climb" is a bad meme. If you want to climb learn wave manipulation.
Game is not hard to understand, folks. Just build damage, click on an enemy first, one shot him, and push the lane. It's that simple.
: There is nothing wrong with the new Ranked System.
"There is nothing wrong with the new Ranked System. People are dogging on the new system because it has its flaws..." You said there's nothing wrong with the new Ranked system, but contradict yourself in the first sentence in the post, lmao.
: The past and future of League of Legends.
League in the past was amazing. League in the present/future is garbage.
: I don't know about you but this new ranking system S U C K S
The game is not competitive anymore, folks. People need to understand that Riot implemented "Runes Reforged" to cater toward NEW/CASUAL PLAYERS. League is a casual game masked as a competitive game. The skill gap has been diminished. Skill means nothing when people can equally compete against each other due to over-excessive damage and RNG elements. Which is why League has turned into a total mess. You can also tell that League turned casual with all of the new champions/updated champions we have been seeing. These champions do not represent integrity for competitive gaming.
: I don't know, this game is straight garbage lately
League's been garbage since preseason 8...
: Need Coaching (Re-post to proper thread)
You don't need to spend money on a coach... Every coach will say the same thing; Build damage and attack first.
: You Can Get Demoted By Losing In An Off Role
Of course you can get demoted... Do people really expect Riot to hold their hands by keeping their ranked complacent when they clearly don't belong in that ranked tier?
: A Critique of The Game Through the Eyes of a Returning Player Playing on an Alt
Lmao, Riot catered League specifically toward new/casual players when Preseason 8 was released. "Riot has no idea how to make the game fun for new players anymore." So, you're saying that Riot has failed both competitive and casual players?
: The reason why we hated both damage meta and tank meta.
