Riot KateyKhaos you make MONEY off players wanting skins because of their fantastic particles/textures/animations/splash art etc. So it is not fair to say Marauder Ashe deserves "Maraudish Arrows"?
When Riot makes cheap skins, people complain because they want more effects. When Riot makes skins with effects (that thus cost more money), people complain because they want cheap skins. THEY CANNOT WIN

: Let's solve the mysteries of MMR!!!
The facts are all out there. The problem is that various myths have cropped up (like in-game performance having an effect) and now you don't know what's true anymore unless you were around for the Elo system (and noted all the times Riot talked about changes to it).
Chillin (NA)
: Why doesnt karth have a target indicator on Q
Those abilities are auto-smartcasted because, generally speaking, they NEED to go off immediately for good play. Rather than having people fumble around with missing everything until they decide to turn on smartcast, they simply made it automatic.

Yeah, they know. There's a to-do list of Champions who need to have their lore redone. You'll notice that some already have (though I don't think the changes have gone through everywhere, you can find it on the Boards until they do), like Nasus, Renekton and Xerath. They were specifically redone as part of the Shurima event.
: It's a bug, I think.
Indeed. I can't find any documented change anywhere, which means it's a bug. That also means that a thread should be made in Report a Bug.

: it's weird, apparently LOREWISE you would be correct. However, it's been stated somewhere (no idea where, twitter, i think), that summoners and the league are cannon INGAME. If you can understand that please explain, but as far as I can tell they just axed the lore off the game and are presenting it like "Hey, this isn't relevant at all but it's cool! Right? Right?"
In-game doesn't have a canon lore. It's an artificial construct using characters from this world they have. Picture something like Super Smash Brothers (discounting the toy thing). Those are characters you know, and they're fighting in a game because reasons.

They haven't changed them because gameplay is no longer canon. The matches we play are no longer a real part of the universe. The characters are persistent, but gameplay isn't tied to the lore anymore.

: Provisional games are reminding you of what new players have to deal with facing lvl 5 smurfs teamed with two lvl 30 masters in lvl 20 games. Honestly though they don't matter and you shouldn't care. Land super low and it should be EASY to claw your way back up to near where you should be.

: I thought of that after the third game last night. I do have some friends who can duo cue with me which will cut it down, but I do believe waiting might actually be the better option. How long do you propose it will take for the "fad" to wear off?
From my horrible memory, Ranked is "safe" after a couple of months.
: [Looking for Sympathy / Explanation] Provisional cue was not what I had expected
I've said it before and I'll say it again: NEVER play Ranked right after a ladder reset. Players who've never played Ranked go into it now because it's exciting, which makes it bad. MMR is squished, so matchmaking can't make fair games, which makes it worse.
: Boy I love being 0-3 in my placements because of teammates who should be in a mental care facility
Literally, placements are here because the system doesn't know how good people are yet. If the system doesn't know yet, how could you expect it to know what's a fair game?

Could you elaborate on why you think that? The conventional wisdom is that you won't get BETTER teammates, but you'll have more CONSISTENT teammates if you wait. After a reset, the ladder is squished. Your MMR will have players of a much wider range of skills than it did at the end of last season. Waiting doesn't get you better allies. It means that your games will be less likely to have a horrible skill gap somewhere.
Horrow (NA)
: We have Sion, who can gain maximum health from kills.
That's not a really exciting build, is the thing. Getting more health feels good. Getting more damage on Siphoning Strike, or more AP, all of these things feel like they're directly helping you out. Past a certain point, mana is almost meaningless. It doesn't make for a satisfying thing to stack, at least in my opinion.

That would make sense. At the same time, though, you want to do this stuff when your relevant employees can be called upon if necessary. Making phone calls at 3 am to get people in the office to fix things isn't an ideal situation to be in.
: Trolls...What time of day do they play?
Because the region spans multiple time zones (and we get players from other regions, too), it's hard to generalize. The best answer is that the players you don't want on your team are ALWAYS online. 5-stack is best stack.

Absolutely not. They have various reasons for this, but the answer is no.

Nagirah (EUW)
: @Riot Why are some particles changed on skins but some aren't?
If I'm understanding your question properly: It's price points. More expensive skins have more changes, like particle effects (IN GENERAL).
: Viktor needs item diversity like Bonetooth Necklace!
The Hex Core is pretty freaking great. I'll be forced to buy that and not complain.
: I am not saying they get a huge advantage just like a 5 point advantage. And didn't they already do this by having the commando series receive reduced damage from Leona?
EVERY advantage in this game is important, even the small ones. Look at Runes and Masteries. Would you give up a slot in any of them and go into all of your games at 29/30? No, you wouldn't. They should remove the sunglasses thing, but it's so situational, working only against one of her spells, (and small on top of it) that they don't see much harm.

: draft has always been the more serious mode of normals. Always.
It is more serious, yes, you're correct. I can make a game of hopscotch more serious, if I want, but it's still hopscotch. Ranked is the mode where things like this matter, because it is THE competitive mode in League. Draft Normals is still Normals, no matter how you dress it up.

Your post right there. I mentioned that one of the frustrations Rioters deal with on these Boards is being asked to do/talk about/look at things that aren't in their department, and this community tends to get pretty angry when someone says "I don't work on that."

Be careful. The more you post, the more people are going to ask you to do things you're not qualified for or even remotely connected to ("Fix the servers!" "Nerf Lee Sin!"), and they will express a lot of anger towards you for not being the person they want to be posting with. That anger will grind you down into phasing back out if you let it get to you. It's like, why deal with people that can't get it through their heads how jobs work? You have to accept that people are stupid, and this game attracts a LOT of people.
Gorsz (NA)
: Blind pick. Why bring a brand new person into draft pick which is supposed to be the serious mode for normals?
Because Draft isn't the serious mode, it's still in Normals. If Normal Draft was intended to be "serious", it would have similar restrictions like the ones they have in Ranked. The only competitive mode in League is Ranked. That's the way League is set up, that's the way it's been and will likely be for quite some time.

: back when I started playing LoL , I wasn't worried about picking any champ and having it not work on the current meta, there was no meta, glorious old days where I could take mages top or bottom instead of just mid these days the meta seems so enforced that I hardly feel like I have choices sometimes even with all the available champs at my disposal I feel I am forced to pick one that fits a certain role/comp because of the almighty " meta" and player mentality that you cannot deviate from it, frankly I hate it and its really starting do drive me off this game again riot seems a good company but the playerbase ...ugh.. anyways, dotas 2 community is looking less whiny than this one lately and that's saying something
That's part of what happens when players get better at the game. When League first came out, nobody knew what the best way to play was going to be. It took a while before the current lane assignments (which is only part of the meta, by the way) came about, because people were still figuring out what was optimal. Eventually, though, they DID figure it out. You can't blame people for wanting to play in a way that's consistent, reliable, and good.
