: Riot, if you're not going to put all the effort into updating old skins to match their price...
They already got people's money for these older skins. Any additional purchases are just free money. People are more interested in what's new. Do not buy goods that have no value, or prepare for disappointment.

It's still better than an instant disconnect or a robot
: Can we give Caitlyn's hextech rifle a name?
: SMURFS
League is a game played almost exclusively by trolls
: Just played ezrial against another good adc
Ezreal isn't really an ADC, he's a mage with attack damage
Syrile (NA)
: See though, it is not Riot's fault. Ezreal has an ironclad contract that requires any and all skin releases to also include an Ezreal or Lux skin (yes, because he likes her). So really, it is our fault for buying any skin line at all. Btw, I love Ezreal. :D I own all of his skins and have for quite some time. I wonder why we do not have a gemstone skin for him yet.... {{sticker:sg-ezreal}}

There's only one skin Ezreal will never have, and that's one that makes him look like a man

Riot could improve the boards by improving the game, but that's a lot to hope for these days This is not a joke, but a legitimate suggestion for you to pass along to Riot
: Okay, I think I know what the issue is. It's not "Sexual" that's the problem, it's using it as a term to describe a "girl". Now before you get your pitchforks out bear with me for a moment. "girl" and "boy" are often described as children, or at the very least, being young. Describing a child as "Sexual" kinda raises some inappropriate flags. Evelynn is described clearly as a "woman". Someone mature, or at least described with a term that doesn't paint her as an adolescent. P.S. I still don't think the name is bad enough to change, since (for the most part) in NA "girl" is synonymous with "female" with how it's used. Just giving my opinion of why the name is being asked to be changed in the first place.

Just giving my opinion of why the name is being asked to be changed in the first place. This doesn't hold water because Zoe and certainly Neeko are underage and have been sexualized. Annie even has with certain skins, from a certain point of view.
: Garena Taiwan got caught using Esport Betting site during their official MSI broadcast
Don't worry, Riot will do everything they can to make this disappear
: The choice of champions in the new skinline just forces a huge "MONEYGRAB" tag to be sticked on it
Every skin is a money grab. That's the defining feature of a skin: getting money from players for literally no real value.

If you had to restore it, that means it shouldn't have been removed. I'm unsure the value of the original removal?

: To all the people saying yuumi is uninspired what did you expect?
Literally every character in the game is copied from some other franchise. This simply being a cat is probably the most original character they've come up with to date.

: I wish you all a nice weekend
as long as we're playing something other than LoL, the good games will happen.
: why do all the cute bubbly champions have to be girls?
: Me: I'd like to play a normals game with my friends today!
: Is This Account Sharing?
Most LoL players just yeet with the mouse and bash an appendage on the keyboard instead of trying. Let her play on her own, she'll make it to gold at least
Jamaree (NA)
: The next time you find a champion OP, do yourself a favor and play.
or just don't play league that much, cuz it's garbage
Mortdog (NA)
: Hey everyone. Let me see if I can offer more insight. We see all the polls, upvate threads, and requests to bring bans back to ARAM. We understand that a very large group of players feel this way. We get the benefits it brings, feeling like you have some agency to remove particular champs you don't enjoy facing. That's super valid. (I personally banned Teemo every game because trying to push into shrooms is pain.) We understand the desire and the need bans fill. HOWEVER, they also come with draw backs. Whether or not you agree with them, there are players that enjoy and have a high affinity for champions like Veigar and Brand. There are players that don't want to think about bans and just want to get in the game quick. There are players that enjoy the high and low rolls of a pure random mode. And believe it or not, most of them aren't "ARAM accounts". Discounting and downvateing them doesn't make them not real. FOR NOW, we'd like to see if we can solve some of the pain points through other methods before considering re-instating bans. Balancing has proven to work quite well, as we've seen Sona/Ziggs go from 68% win rate to 57%. We still have some more adjustments that can be made, but the champions are more fair to face than they have ever been. There's still more work to be done though, and more adjustments will be coming more often. (I've already got a batch ready for approval.) Bans are a very strong hammer we aren't quite ready to slam down yet. If you look at the ban rates I posted on twitter, for a few champs it was basically the equivalent of deleting them from the mode. If we made a poll saying "Should we delete Zoe from SR?" I'm sure it would have a ton of upvates...but we still wouldn't do it because it's not the right call. Game design isn't always about the popular opinion. That being said, we are STILL OPEN TO BRINGING THEM BACK if our other methods don't solve the issues. If after a few months, Fiddle/Veigar are still a pain to play against, then we'll reconsider. I'm sure this post hasn't changed many peoples minds, but hopefully at least shows you where we're coming from. Other common thoughts: *Look we had 5 melee and they had the perfect comp. This shows we need bans and they were ARAM accounts* - No...this happened either way, regardless of bans and they very likely were NOT ARAM accounts. The thing about random is that highs and lows exist. With all champs unlocked in our internal playtests, we still managed a Lux/Morg/Blitz/Jhin/Alistar comp. It was terror. It happens. *Why not just unlock all champs* - This would help for sure, but has side effects we aren't comfortable with. It's no secret that Riot does need to make money in order to continue as a business, and this would impact that quite a bit. However, I do think we can make improvements in this area. 42 F2P champs isn't enough. More on this hopefully soon-ish.

Why don't you just make two modes, one for old ARAM and one for the ban version? You can cater to two groups, it isn't tough

I'm sorry I rustled your jimmies enough to comment on something from 11 days ago
: Definitely Not Neeko skin
How about a "Definitely Not Jailbait" skin that makes Neeko look not underage
: Playing immobile champs in this game feels like shiit.
I mean If a mobile champion gets fed, it's scarier than a fed immobile champion. But overall, Morg's snare destroys mobile champions 1v1. Now, if it's a whole team of mobile champions... good luck.
: How do you win games vs. super safe lanes ?
Roam. Push in a different lane quickly.
Zaltenos (EUW)
: Unfair Club Name and Club Tag Reset
Wikipedia says a loli is "a Japanese slang term for a young girl who has not reached the age to sexual consent". What the hell does that have to do with your club or any of its members?
: I'd have to agree with OP here - I don't have an ARAM exclusive account but recently the last year I've been introducing my wife to league through ARAM first to get her used to the huge champion pool, different abilities and combos that exist, so that when we eventually transition she'll have an easier time of it. I don't own only about 20-25 champs. The ban system was a huge welcome addition IMO, the only thing they could have done to make it better was to unlock ALL champs in ARAM mode. Only ones complaining are ARAM only accounts (lookin at you
: Seriously. The only people who were complaining about ARAM bans were people with ARAM accounts.
Unfortunately League has a huge base of trolly people. The same types of people who like to smurf are the ones with ARAM accounts. Gotta be able to say "gg ez" without actually trying.
Sydelle (NA)
: If Certainly T isn't on most of Balance Team's shit list, the problem is beyond fixing.
Certainly T does his job perfectly well. He makes the champions that people who want to easily win wish to buy. It's BS, but it makes the money.

Sure. Choosing to not ban a champion provides a different set of advantages compared to when you ban a champion.

That's what "regular" mode is URF is the real game

At what level of play does Twisted Fate get a pentakill? At the crap level of play I am, a TF pick is a liability

There's plenty of advantage in picking no ban.

Voldymort (EUNE)

: Riot's opinion on Riven's balance: Then vs Now
Isn't Riot just a Tencent property now? The Asian market will always dictate how this game works, period

The best part about blind 5s is watching your team pick 4 champions with absolutely no CC and then watching Master Yi and Yasuo 1v5 you repeatedly

What if I enjoy trolling in League? Is that okay? Am I allowed to use that as my escape?

Playing at low levels and at Diamond+ are two very different metas in themselves
