: Why Riot Could Easily Create A "Troll" Detection System
Well, pretty much all of the information you've listed is stuff that's available through the Riot API. If you think it'd be straight forward, then why don't you test that theory on some Iron/Bronze/Silver players? I'm pretty sure you'd get *a lot* of false positives, and that's the biggest problem with this method. Riot's trying to create a system that has almost no false positives (0.001% false positives I think), which is a much harder bar to reach.

Well I guess they have a million different ways to go with the movies now. The Captain America thing is still messing with me too. That's the only thing in the movie I really didnt like. It leaves to many questions as to how he accomplished everything without screwing up the past or other timelines. But whatever. I guess they needed him removed from the series but didnt want to kill him too.

It leaves to many questions as to how he accomplished everything without screwing up the past or other timelines. But whatever. I guess they needed him removed from the series but didnt want to kill him too. In general, so long as the Infinity Stone was placed back about where it was and pretty close to the same time it was taken, nothing *really* changes in the past timelines. Cap's role seems daunting at first, but when you break it down it's not so bad. Easily put back: * Power Stone (Purple) - Set it back in the temple * Time Stone (Green) - Hand it back to the Ancient One * Mjoulnir (Hammer) - Drop it off anywhere in Asgard Some Assembly Required (AKA: Use the Time Stone to undo what you did): * Mind Stone (Yellow) - They stole it as part of the Scepter... but the crystal on the Scepter was Blue, not Yellow. They had to break it out of the Scepter to use it. The broken blue crystal surrounding has to be repaired before the events of Age of Ultron. * Space Stone (Blue) - AKA: The Tesseract. Much like the Mind Stone, there's no giant blue cube strapped to the Gauntlet, so we know they had to break it open to extract it. Which means they need to re-assemble a Tesseract. Moderately Challenging to put back: * Reality Stone (Red) - Have to put that back in Jane... maybe she's still unconscience from what Rocket did? * Soul Stone (Orange) - Do you just hand this one back to the Red Skull? You can at least hope he's got a return policy. * The 2012 Tesseract needs to be re-captured before Loki can do anything with it. Even if the Avengers don't see Thor take away a prisoner Loki using the Tessaract, Loki needs to be captured and the cube secured pronto. ----- In the end, the hardest task for Cap was likely capturing Loki, with the minor advantage that Cap has time travel to help with that task. (Potentially even using the Time Stone to help).
: Releasing skins for the sake of numbers is also a terrible idea because at the end of the day riot is a business and their wallet is what matters. Evening out mordekaiser skins over giving a skin to a person who is almost gauranteed to sell like ahri makes no sense. Reasoning like this is why Ivern got dunkmaster... What even kind of skin is that, and Asols second skin is garbage too. The reasoning is that these champions are much harder to find themes that fit them. Rushing a theme through because it sounds like a decent idea on paper is terrible because it results in an unfortunate skin and a net loss for the company. Now I'm not saying that ivern should have had to wait as long as he did. But it's part of why these champs get so many skins all the time. They are so much easier to design for. Mf, Ahri, Lux, LeBlanc, etc. These are just women. They can fit into nearly any skinline that exists, with only their personalities to consider. Champions like Yorick, Ivern, Asol, Morde, Udyr etc. People with really iconic visual representation requirements either in their base skins or abilities themselves require a much more surgical approach to skins. You can't just slap Udyr into the star guardian line up, but nearly any skin line can fit on a basic human silhouette.

You can't just slap Udyr into the star guardian line up, but nearly any skin line can fit on a basic human silhouette. I fully agree with this point, but it feels like it emphasizes a problem with Riot's design philosophy. On the one hand, they want characters that feel unique to League, while on the skin side hand they only want champions that can swap clothes and style their hair to make something new. Many themes that *can* fit non-human designs relatively easily (Arcade, Infernal, Program) get filled with humans instead.
: Urgot's Battlecast skin dropped in 2013. Urgot's first post-rework skin, High Noon, dropped in 2018. That's 5 years.
And everyone knew he was due for a VGU for most of that 5 year period. Again, if Riot says they're planning on giving a VGU to Xerath I'm fine with it. It's a lack of stated intent to VGU him *and* a lack of skins that makes this situation unique.
: Except Xerath is by no means the worst offender. Yorick didn't get a SINGLE SKIN post launch for his old model, with his first skin being AFTER his VGU in 2017, a whopping 6 years after he launched. I mean, I get you're upset about Xerath, but chill. They will get to him eventually. He's low priority, but they're trying to work on it. Though I hope that doesn't mean he gets the "Dunkmaster Ivern" treatment.
Yorick was on the "Yeah... we're reworking that guy" list for most of the time after his launch. It's the same reason why he was kept off of the free week rotation. To the best of my knowledge, Xerath represents the longest a champion has gone without a new skin *without* Riot saying they need a rework. If they're planning on giving him a VGU, fine, it would explain the delay, but it feels like they're not giving him a skin because they don't want to think about it at this point.

: Question: How do you view Riot?
I think I see Riot Games like an ex-girlfriend. Seemed wonderful and fantastic, like someone you wanted to spend all your time with for the first few years. I was invited to a hackathon at Riot HQ and it was one of the coolest experiences of my life, and made me convinced that I needed to work at Riot. But over the last few years it feels like Riot has changed into something barely recognizable, a mockery of everything I loved about them. There's no way you can look at the paid Prestige skins, with their blatant drive to purchase $100+ of lootboxes in less than a year, and say that was a player focused decision. You can't say that champions getting ignored by the Skins team for 4+ years is a player focused decision. You can't say that cramming more and more damage to make instant burst metas is a player focused decision. I view a lot of Rioters as good people trapped in a bad company at this point.

Riot gives plenty of opportunities to save money on skins and I appreciate that, but people are going to be understandably disappointed when you have to spend that much cash to get a specific prestige chroma you want. Not everybody can afford to spend their money on digital cosmetics like that, and are usually spending 10-20 dollars at a time to buy a certain skin they want, much like myself. I have KD/A Evelynn and would love the prestige edition, but I'm not about to spend over a hundred dollars on loot boxes to get it. It's also misleading when they label them "Prestige" skins, but don't give you any ways to receive them other than spending money(They are going to let you get prestige points through missions but you still have to purchase a pass to be able to do them). The term prestige kind of implies you earned something through hard work and determination, or have/did something worth respecting. Some people seem to think it's simply synonymous with wealthy. I've been playing league since season one and the most prestigious skin I have is Silver Kayle from the Collectors Pack. It's very rare and exudes a sense of status. It only cost me 20 dollars when I first started playing the game, and even came with like 10 new Champions to play. > > I understand Riot is a business and I'm all for them making their money, but there really are better ways to do it. This system makes people like me feel incredibly left out and semi taken advantage of, while the only argument you seem to have is; "stop complaining, random skins are free." My argument is "If you're gonna lose it because you can't have *this one specific **cosmetic*** without spending money on an otherwise F2P game, you might be a LoL addict, a shopaholic, or BOTH. This'll probably get deleted for being edgy, but tbh, that's about the best possible way to word it without getting into the area of personal attacks.

And the bright haired blue eyed teen magical girl, both less than 18 years old. The only champs that come anywhere near them are Ekko and Taliyah who both closer fit to best friend roles to Lux and Ezreal's archetypes, or Ahri, who is her whole other thing.

There's a difference between an optional product you pay for and a cash grab. Not all skins are cash grabs, even if all skins bring in cash. A good sign of a cash grab is when people say "Did you *really* make that?" in an unimpressed way. Ezreal being Blonde is Optional - he has skins and chromas that remove that. Facial Markings are also Optional, and are missing in most of his skins. You're left with Blue Eyes and Pretty Boy, so if that is something Riot needs for a significant amount of their skin lines then they need to make more blue eyed pretty boys.
Morgåna (NA)
: Program and Dark Star yes, Super Galaxy no way.. he is in no way fit for that. It has it's base around the anime gurren lagan. No character in said series looks or feels anything like him.
I know it's based on Gurren Lagann, but that doesn't exclude the idea of massive energy particles flying around. http://static2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101224011312/vsbattles/images/thumb/d/d4/TTGL4.jpg/400px-TTGL4.jpg

Yeah, in basically the entire 7 years I was playing this game Xerath - a champion I came to main - got 1 skin...

I'm sorry but Ezreal and Lux fit anime better than literally any other champs in the game. Ezreal was literally based off of ~~Urihara~~ Ishida from Bleach. And Lux is a teenage magical girl.

Poor Kalista hasn't had a non eSports themed skin since release. Well to be fair, this is a free to play game. Riot charges nothing for you to enjoy it.

They "fit" because there's nothing particularly interesting about their design, so you can do whatever you want to it and people don't care because the *attitude* stays the same.
: I've left similar comments in the past but I'll happily restate them. Its all about finding a theme. Honestly before this last patch or two, I forgot that Xerath existed. He's honestly just such a forgettable champion with his base theme and lore, and almost all of his skins are either recolors or unimaginative reiterations of the same idea: a being made of pure energy held together by a catalyst. There's not a lot you can take that one. To be able to easilly recognize it as Xerath it needs to have a body with no real use for feet, and have glowing energy either coursing over it constantly, or have large gaps in the clothing/armor to reveal glowing energy. Personally, I can't think of any unique ideas that would fit his theme.
Spend more than 2 seconds and you can fit a theme to Xerath. He would fit Program beautifully, Dark Star naturally, and Super Galaxy gloriously. But if all you're looking for is "can I change their shirt and pants/skirt and call it a day?" then you start to run into issues. Ezreal gets into so many themes because he's completely forgettable as a design. You remember Ezreal as an attitude. Same with Lux.
: So, another Academia skinline...but still none for Taliyah?
{{champion:101}} hasn't gotten a new skin since before {{champion:163}} was a champion. So much missed opportunity with a Super Hero School theme...
: [SUGGESTION] ¨Charge¨ based abilities (Think D Va´s Defense Matrix or Pharahs Jetpack)
Oh, I know the answer to this! What is Mana! Seriously, you're asking for a resource that's reduced/depleated when you use an ability that gates your use of the ability again, and that builds back up over time. It's not special in League because it's one of the core mechanics of the game.
Sukishoo (NA)
: Ez, lux and graves much like Ahri, Yi, Yasuo, ect are all super popular, it's all about money in the end. So starting off a new theme, they will of course push populars out for it first. Still, those two are confirmed for skins this year, so they are on their way.
You can pull a popular champion to kick start a new line without pulling the same ones that got a skin 5 months ago. Lee Sin, Jinx, Lucian, etc. Again, the only reason for a champion to get put off for 4 years is if Riot's ignoring them until they get a rework - and even then at that point the rework should probably be a higher priority. Shaco and Ziliean getting skins makes me think they'll be along the lines of Safecracker Evelynn - a skin that's simple enough to make/convert before the rework 3 years later.
: To be fair, the only one I could see fitting this theme that you named was Zilean. But yes, I agree. Its frustrating and annoying that they're just giving Lux and Ez more skins

Sukishoo (NA)
: Uh... Zilean and Shaco are due for skins this year, as it was confirmed in the 2019 Skin video. So just cause one hasn't gotten a skin yet doesn't mean they are ignoring them due to a possible vgu
*Four.* ***Years.*** There's no reason any champion should be put off for that long. It's barely been 5 *months* since the last Ezreal, Lux, and Graves skins were released.
Rioter Comments
: It's funny people always say the: It's hArD To dEtEcT! And the ignore the cases, when trolls were fed on a silver plate to the support in manual tickets and they still refused to do something :) They put almost 0 effort in catching trolls, the support is too fckin lazy to punish them when it's pushed in their face. It is about priority as well....
"manual tickets" = the backlogged system of manual reviewing. The person who says "we'll look into it" hands it of to another team that has to add it to their "to do" stack. It doesn't help that every time the team makes a step forward in detecting trolls/intentional feeders in an automatic way some streamer/YouTuber does something that's basically inting and the "but you can see they were trying!" excuses come out, so they have to dial back the system. Still, it does catch some people.
Saianna (EUNE)
: > People ask the same thing for ARAM. They want it to be more random, and the only way to do that is to make it less random by adding in rules (and removing rerolls). ARAMs random is truly not random though. Ignoring the "i got X champion Y times in a row" comments, it's a fact it only uses champions from your pool, rather than from all-champions pool. So in the end the good ARAM champions will be picked more often due to ARAM accounts only using those few "aram elites". So you do in fact see more of lux/varus/ziggs and whateverelse is OP/strong.
You want a common denominator (picking from all champions) instead of a varying denominator (picking from owned+free week champions), but that doesn't change the fact that it already is random.
Saianna (EUNE)
: > I've done empirical tests with random number generators, and you get the same kind of results from using plain old random number generators that you see with Riot's ARAM generator. Considering ARAM accounts exist and they should heavily distort your results I'm calling BS on this one.
People with ARAM accounts aren't complaining about that the system "isn't random enough," that complaint only comes from people who own most of the champions. The complaints always focus on "why do some champions show up tons but not others?" or "why do I get the same champion all the time?", which are patterns you can see by having a random number generator pick a number 1 through # of champs available - which for simplicity is the number of champs in the game. ARAM accounts manipulate the # of champs that can be picked for them by having as few champions in their pool as possible. There's a reason the only thing you hear about ARAM accounts is that they only having certain champions - because that's the only way possible to manipulate RNG.
: i hate riot NEW logo
Yeah, this logo gives me a Flintstones vibe. http://www.pickafont.com/images/fonts/large/f/Flintstone.ttf.png Straight edges but barely a square angle in the lot. The pixelated edge is stands out a ton and *really* makes it look rough.
: yeah I can relate to some of your points. I have this sneaking suspicion that the champs they give you aren't random at all. They have little codes and bullshit setup for it. For example {{champion:110}} {{champion:51}} {{champion:99}} are basically in all of my ARAM games (until the ban phase came through), while I see {{champion:83}} {{champion:131}} {{champion:20}} rarely, maybe every 10 games. and then the main indicator that shit is not random at all is this... I get {{champion:268}} , a champ i've never played once. I did incredibly well, like 15-3 or something, hard carried while the rest of my team was super heavy.......... next game, oh wow I got given {{champion:268}} again. No lie. And I played it again and did well again, but that's a 1/150 chance to get him next game, and to get him twice in a row when i haven't gotten him once in the last several hundred games ????? yeah. it's a fucking setup , they should make ARAM actually random and not try to tweak it with their "matchmaking" and algorithms.

: And is there a reason you didn't ask him or the moderator team on discord? You know how to use that, it allows for much more quick responses and access. Seems as if you're publicizing this just to "get back" at them for something and make them look bad.
The Discord is where you want things done in the shadows, where no one else will know about it. It's fine for reporting something, or minor grievances, but matters of larger policy should be brought before the public. This seems the appropriate place for the discussion. In a case like this, requesting a different post pinned - particularly if it's going to be updated - makes sense.

: High Quality Rito Matchmaking
Why do people bother comparing Ranks for Normal games? Doing so would only lead to the conclusion that you were the second worst player on your team.
: WTF IS NORMS MATCHMAKING
It's simple: Pre-30 account that can CS? Must be a smurf! They can hold their own against their non-smurf counterparts. On a side note, Diamond/Grandmaster players tend to play more Ranked than Normals, and since the two have completely separate MMR systems, their Normals MMR will be less accurate than their Ranked MMR.
: So this is worth a chat restriction nowadays... interesting....
I *think* what happened is it detected you were on a Smurf, so it is holding you to a higher standard, and it picked up the "I'm going to report you" as a way of trying to force your teammates to do something. I believe you handled this as well as could be expected honestly.
: Why some Kog skins are pay2win or pay2lose
Yeah... they should make *all* of Kog'maw's Ult effects consistent. For consistency with similar abilities in game, there should be an indicator on the ground where it will hit. That would make Battlecast less Pay 2 Lose.
: Convince me matchmaking isn't a coin flip
If you look at everyone you've been matched with and against, you'll find similar graphs. Maybe in different fields, but there will be some areas where they do great and "good enough for Challenger" and other areas where they don't.
: That's a lie, he didn't try to wind wall the melee opponents.

: No, no, no, not what I'm talking about or addressing. I am talking _specifically_ about in-client blocking - right-clicking their summoner name, and clicking "Block". I use this feature frequently, am told it blocks all conversation, game invites, and friend requests. Yet I have said people still filling my chat log. Further, those I have blocked, I am matched with them again pretty frequently, and still see their chat both in and out of game in lobbies and team chats.
I've never heard of it blocking chat. Friend requests and invites, yes, but not chat.

But I can't think of a time when someone got banned for expressing criticism. Criticising another player contributes/leads to a punishment, because Riot considers is to be negative and have labeled it "toxic" by the IFS
I think we've both seen enough chat logs to know people aren't being banned for saying "that would have gone better if you did X" or "next time try Y".
: I'm all for allowing players to flame trolls/inters/bad players; Noone should be shielded from criticism when wasting other's time or playing poorly. The only restriction there needs to be is for spamming, so players don't get too focused on typing and are distracted from the game
I'm all for people expressing criticism when others are playing poorly. But I can't think of a time when someone got banned for expressing criticism.
: Riot should put honor lvl into account during ban also ban the annoying players
> The i told you to kill urself but now that ur saying it ur getting reported for responding and tell me to go back time to tell my mom abort myself is a morally correct decision Why'd you feel the need to repeat it? Everyone could read it the first time, there's nothing gained by repeating it. If you got punished for repeating it, it's a safe bet they got punished for saying it as well.

: To think that scripting is not out there just means you 1) are a scripter, 2) I have some lake side property to sell you in Nevada.
You've got property on Lake Tahoe, or Lake Mead, or Pyramid Lake? Sounds great! If you're going to use an expression get it right. *Ocean front* property is what Nevada doesn't have. It has lakes. I'm more familiar with the state being Arizona as well. Also, there's a difference between thinking scripters don't exist and thinking they're not common enough to worry about.

My bad, they moved it to the bottom right. Seriously though, the fact that I have to tell you specifically which corner of the screen to look in to find it means you're never going to think about it before you lock in and get into game.
: A way to know your playing ranked...?
There is a way to check. Look in the upper left corner while in champ select.

Looking at the match too, you did super well to help carry your team to victory and definitely deserved the win. > > Many players have already said this in comments but what I do want to mention here is that many players use third-party sites to psych themselves out before a game even begins. Visual rankings are *NOT* 1 to 1 to MMR, which is what matchmaking looks at when creating a team. The system is never actually against you. It works to try to match you with and against players so that you have as close as a 50/50 chance of winning every game, including promos. > > Looking at the stats for the game (might be a little off since some have played games since then), the match was fair and even on both sides. The system actually matched that game with your team having a higher % to win. > > I want to share this because matchmaking is always a frequent inquiry we get in support where players feel it is unfair but the system works as it is intended to. Well that's not entire accurate is it? Players are not matched equally Vs enemy laners just overall MMR. And certain champs in certain roles have completely different carry potential. Let me explain. Top ally S1 Vs top enemy G2 in MMR. Both have little impact in the game. Rarely die. Mid ally G2 Vs S1. Ally zed enemy whatever. Other lanes all equal. All MMR is balanced. 50% win rates likely.....on paper statistics. Who do you think is going to weight the game snowballing, roaming bot, getting doubles, dragons and soon being able to 1 shot ultimate the G2 top (because resistances are so poor?). And who's ally ADC gets ahead then? At least do me the honour of a human being and answer this. You can say matches are 50% WR weighted but you know certain roles have faaaaaaar more influence than others numbers be damned. At least give me the courtesy of denying this.....
You're forgetting Positional MMR is a thing now. Whatever role the S1 and G2 player are assigned, they've shown they perform at the same level when in those respective roles. You can't matchmake based on what might happen *after* the teams are assembled.
: people should honestly be banned from playing ranked when they do this.
Yeah... I can *kinda* understand Hecarim going for the third inhibitor, if he thought he didn't have the damage to finish before the enemy respawned. The inhibitor is a safer objective that you can take on the way out. I can understand Xerath's hesitancy, wanting to attack the Nexus but wanting to stick with Hecarim. I can't understand why Twitch thought taking Red Buff was more important than ending.
