: Store glitched? Can't buy qiyana
She's not released yet. She's implemented in the client, but she's not "live". She'll be here either tomorrow or Friday, or later in the patch.
: TFT Free Little Legend
I believe you'll get a free one when missions are implemented next week. Although don't quote me on that, that is just my guess.

: Battle Academia skins releasing on the 16th
Can I get a link to that? I am not finding that tweet anywhere, but probably because I don't have Twitter. :(
: when is battle academia coming out
They're supposed to be out now. It says 11am PDT. So hopefully soon!
: Are the Battle Academia skins still being released today?
I just checked the MSI shop and it says May 15th, 11am PDT. o_o

: I'm guessing that Battle Academy skins are being pushed back to 9.11?
No... they're being released today at 11am PDT. So in about an hour.
: Any idea when the Battle Academia skins are being released?
Catsix (NA)
: Not necessarily. I was able to earn the Vayne one without an event pass and my husband did the same with the Kai'sa one, I just wasnt trying for the first two.
What??? How??? The free tokens you could earn capped at like 300~ or so, and each Prestige skin was like 1000 or 2000 points, requiring you to buy a pass to unlock the ability to earn to gain more tokens off of wins and such... unless I'm missing something here? Sorry I can't quite recall the actually amounts.
Minarde (NA)
: It's 3 weeks, actually, [as of patch 8.11](https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/patch/patch-811-notes#patch-aram) back in May 2018. So 42 champs in ARAM's free rotation.
Oh okay thank you for the correction then! Sorry I was checking the ARAM wikia. :P
: how long until aram goes back to normal colors?

I have only seen 1 dodge in ARAM today, and I've played 7 games of ARAM throughout the day.
Aikeoh (NA)
: So.. why do people care if someone has an ARAM account? Why do people care if you win or lose in ARAM? If you care about winning or losing, go play SR.
I mean I can turn around the question and ask why do so many people care about ARAM bans? I mean I don't care about winning or losing, I just want to have fun, and there's no fun in feeling like I'm constantly in one sided match ups. Like I've been up against teams like: {{champion:63}} {{champion:45}} {{champion:99}} {{champion:115}} {{champion:16}} Then my team is something like: {{champion:5}} {{champion:497}} {{champion:82}} {{champion:75}} {{champion:33}} With no chance of ever being able to get onto the enemy team/no one knows how their champion works. Trust me it's not fun, sure it's a shorter match but it still feels bad none the less.
: 100% agree that good characters are going to get shelved, good FUN characters and therefore fun is being removed from game. if you dont like veigar learn to play jhin, caitlyn, nidalee anyone with long range poke... dont remove him.... beat him.... learn.
.... How are people gonna choose Jhin, Caitlyn and Nidalee if it is a random mode????? Also how are you certain that the enemy team is gonna get Veigar?
: please lower the amount of bans to 3, 10 bans is way too high im sure you already know that, as someone who ONLY plays autorandom and have for the last decade or so i am very disappointed about you guys trying to fix something that IS NOT BROKEN, the mode is awesome and it lives up to its name AUTO RANDOM, putting in bans at all defeats the purpose, putting in 10 bans defeats the game mode. why not give people an extra roll or increase their chances of gettting a character that is considered "elite" in autorandom by a certain amount with each loss or something. basically you have condemned the best characters in this mode of the game and thats just shady guys. its not rank its not monitored recorded or even cared about 15 minutes after the game is over, this idea is overboard and as someone who owns all of the characters but 10 i used to be afraid of veigars and mundos too, until i got good.
ARAM accounts though defeat the purpose of getting a RANDOM champion. And it's not so much of being afraid of Veigar, but it's getting a team comp like Veig/Lux/Jhin/Brand/ZIggs, etc. Also his stun can take up half of the lane.
NoGhost (NA)
: I completely agree; ARAM is supposed to be a casual gamemode, why add bans and make it more serious? I want to hop into queue, get a random champ immediately and play. Not spend time waiting for people to finish banning.
ARAM accounts though defeat the purpose of getting a RANDOM champion.
: It'd be nice if my team would atleast ban shit that makes sense like: Brand, Mundo, Veigar, Zoe, MF Instead of seeing Pyke ??? get banned on both teams, blitzcrank, random shit like Darius? Ok
Pyke and Blitz are both good in ARAM, same with Darius... There pretty decent on the tier lists from what I've seen.
Elewd (NA)
: Aram has 5 weeks of free rotation available in aram so the champion pool will always be 50+ champions. this was changed like a good while ago. *edit* its 3 weeks not 5, i thought it was past weeks of free champions + the current week my bad.
Where are you getting 5 weeks of free rotation? It's only 1... so it's only 14 champions available... and there is potential overlap with that. Even so there is always a chance of getting good champs and bad champs with a free rotation.
: Aram Change
It's only for 2 weeks.

Just make all champs unlocked for ARAM. Poof, there goes all ARAM accounts.
Trust me I like that option better but there will probably be an increase in dodges.
: Hey let's ruin a good map because some people use ARAM accounts on a game mode that basically gets you nothing for a win and doesn't matter and was only invented so people can have fun. I've played about 5 or 6 games tonight and every time it was boring as hell cause you only play boring champs now who aren't designed for the map and aren't fun to play on that map. You want to solve ARAM accounts, have every player available to players including ones you don't own. Problem solved, then its truly random. Nobody actually buys characters, only skins, so honestly it doesn't really matter in one mode they give you access to every character.
Do you not what an ARAM account is? It's an account that basically has the best champions for ARAM like: {{champion:34}} {{champion:1}} {{champion:53}} {{champion:63}} {{champion:81}} {{champion:9}} {{champion:40}} {{champion:126}} {{champion:202}} {{champion:145}} {{champion:43}} {{champion:30}} {{champion:96}} {{champion:99}} {{champion:90}} {{champion:21}} {{champion:25}} {{champion:267}} {{champion:518}} {{champion:15}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:16}} {{champion:110}} {{champion:45}} {{champion:161}} {{champion:101}} {{champion:115}} {{champion:26}} {{champion:142}} {{champion:143}} I agree with the option of unlocking every champion, but there will probably be an increase in dodges.
: i agree with this. if you add bans in ARAM it not ARAM anymore. you are basically deciding who can play what. the whole point of ARAM is All Random All Middle. i'll say it again, All Random. you have no say in who you get to pick but have rerolls and trades and the bench to help you. by add bans it removes the whole Random aspect. maybe if 5 random champs were banned each round and not decided by the players then maybe it would add more fun.
ARAM accounts though defeat the purpose of ALL RANDOM... that's the reason why the bans were implemented.
: > [{quoted}](name=Duchess Katarina,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=AYAXUAIA,comment-id=0001,timestamp=2019-04-03T22:50:21.492+0000) > > Yet there are a lot of people who use ARAM accounts to get the best champions possible for ARAM. That's why the bans were put in place, because for years players have been complaining about ARAM accounts. A more simple solution would be to just make ARAM roll for all the champions, regardless of whether you own them or not. Riot hasn't done this probably because they think it'll affect sales of champions when there is the other side of the coin that would make people buy a champion due to never playing them before. That's what the best solution would be tbh, and no need for bans. Fun fact, Riot was hesitant about making ARAM an official game mode at first because they thought it would effect sales in a negative way. It is true in a sense but it depends on factors and in this situation it wasn't true.
I agree with that option too but the reason why they're probably not implementing that is that there might be an increase in dodges. But also people might genuinely not know what the champion does/know what runes to take or what to build. And with the small window of time you're given you might not get time to look up a build/runes. Trust me I like that option a lot more, but I think more problems would arise from that option.
: Why Did They Ruin Aram?
Dude relax, it's only here for 2 weeks. They're experimenting with bans atm, to stop people who use ARAM accounts. It's not ALL RANDOM if people are using ARAM accounts.

: ARAM Bans
> ALL RANDOM means ALL champs available. Yet there are a lot of people who use ARAM accounts to get the best champions possible for ARAM. That's why the bans were put in place, because for years players have been complaining about ARAM accounts.
: Arent the past 2 free week rotations added to the current free week for that reason? That increases the champ pool quite a bit.
Only the current week's free rotation, which only adds in 14. There can be overlap too in the free week and an ARAM accounts champion pool. While it does increase the champion pool it can add good champions into the roster as well bad.
: seriously! I didn't even need any masterwork chest but the prestige points and now that everyone can get it for cheap its tilting. wouldn't be the first time they tried a stunt for $. just like when they re-released limited edition skins they said they wouldn't like kitty kat katarina OMEGALUL
To be fair they did say that they were gonna release ways to get Prestige Points for free...
: I play primarily aram I'm a dad and cant get locked down to long games, however, I've played the same account for many years and have not taken advantage of the controlled champ pool aram only accounts aim to do. Implementing bans damages the game mode as a whole. If the aim is to get aram only accounts under control then there are certainly better measures to be taken. Like allowing payers with many champs to personally choose a percentage of their own champs to ban for themselves while also requiring every account to have a certain amount or individual champs owned before they're eligible to play aram. This would get the problem of aram only accounts under control on a personal individual player level without damaging the game mode.
The two solutions you offer, while good are slightly unrealistic/hard to pull off and don't really stop ARAM accounts. Your first solution is for players with larger champion pools to ban a percentage of their own champions to ban away. There are a few problems with that. First, it still doesn't make it all random, because you're still banning away champions/making a pool of more favourable picks. Second, how would that even be implemented? It would take a lot of time for each person in champ select to go through their own roster and ban away certain champions that they don't want to be given. That would make champ select a lot longer as well. Third, that doesn't stop ARAM accounts from getting away with owning favourable champions. Your second solution is a better idea, but still can be manipulated. How many champions would an account need before being eligible to play ARAM? 30, like ranked? Well lets see if there are 30 favourable champions that an ARAM account can have: {{champion:34}} {{champion:1}} {{champion:53}} {{champion:63}} {{champion:81}} {{champion:9}} {{champion:40}} {{champion:126}} {{champion:202}} {{champion:145}} {{champion:43}} {{champion:30}} {{champion:96}} {{champion:99}} {{champion:90}} {{champion:21}} {{champion:25}} {{champion:267}} {{champion:518}} {{champion:15}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:16}} {{champion:110}} {{champion:45}} {{champion:161}} {{champion:101}} {{champion:115}} {{champion:26}} {{champion:142}} {{champion:143}} Well okay, 40 then! {{champion:103}} {{champion:22}} {{champion:51}} {{champion:69}} {{champion:74}} {{champion:222}} {{champion:127}} {{champion:117}} {{champion:76}} {{champion:555}} 50? {{champion:32}} {{champion:420}} {{champion:54}} {{champion:57}} {{champion:61}} {{champion:4}} {{champion:17}} {{champion:112}} {{champion:14}} {{champion:134}} There are few more good picks, but these are some of the best (from my own personal bias and standards. if you really want the best champs for ARAM I would suggest looking at a Tier List)... But requiring 50 is too much to ask of people, but if so, there are plenty of viable options that ARAM only accounts can still manipulate. So Riots best options are either allowing bans or making every champion available in ARAM. If they choose the latter, then having a pool of 143 (I believe that's how many champions are in the game currently) are gonna make a lot of people unhappy when they really do get a champion they don't know how to play meaning, you're gonna see an increase in dodges. And a lot of unhappy campers, grumbling about how they didn't get a better champion. So currently the former, allowing bans seems like the best option and again it is experimental.
: Aram
> My only issue with Aram is riot forcing me to play a champ i don't own. That's just whatever is on free-week usually. > Poke damage requires skill shots. Requires Mana. I'm not sure what you're trying to say here? Depending on what champion you're playing, yeah you might have skill shots in the kit, but it's always been that way? Even with requiring mana, they haven't made any changes to mana, as far as I can recall.
SushiSon (NA)
: new aram sucks
It's only here for 2 weeks~. Depending on the results Riot gets, they'll decide whether or not to keep bans or not.
: BANS IN ARAM
It's experimental, so the bans are only here for this patch. They implemented the bans to stop ARAM accounts. Throughout the years, players have been wanting Riot to do something about ARAM accounts, and they finally have.
: Bans in ARAM?? No thanks
It's because of ARAM-only accounts. For years, players have been wanting Riot to do something about these types of accounts, and they finally did. Don't worry though, the ARAM bans are experimental, and are only here for this patch as far as I know.
Catsix (NA)
: I just hate that it's all about money. You have to either buy a bundle of the points or buy an event pass. I liked how we could EARN the Kai'sa and Akali skins. I honestly believe it kept a lot of players playing despite it being the preseason slump, having rewarding missions kept me logging on just to play a few games to get my missions done. I suppose I'll just be happy I earned what I earned and hope/wait for the event where they're earn able again.
You still had to buy the event pass in order to earn the Kai'sa and Akali skins though?
ZoonT (EUW)
: So the people that spent a lot of money on this just got fucked
To be fair they did say they were gonna release ways to get Prestige Points for free later in the year.
: so technically i have to give you 100$ to obtain the prestige kda evelynn skin (that is also ugly as fuck) when the base kda evelynn skin is "WAY BETTER"...hope you are going "at least" ("AT LEAST") change it, or you are crazy thinking something like this riot.
No? You can buy an event pass and then grind out to 1100 tokens (or however much they set it to) and then buy 100 prestige points with the tokens you grinded out for. If you don't want to grind out 100 points, you can buy 4 event passes, and each event pass comes with 25 prestige points missions. (So that would also get you to 100 prestige points).
Muzét (EUW)
: Are you planning to give a token exchange for Evelynn release? And does it means that if we want a Prestige Skin we have to buy **4** Event Passes?
So there are currently 2 options as far as I understand: You can either buy 1 event pass and grind out to say about 1100 tokens and then exchange that for 100 Prestige Points. OR Buy 4 event passes and get 100 tokens. (Again this is as far as I understand from their post and reading comments and replies from Rioters).
: Okay okay now i understand. So by the end of all 4 events you’ll have at the least 100pp rip looks like im not getting eve and ahri both then :/ id rather have a grindy pass for PP per match.
I think what a Rioter was trying to tell me in another post is that you can grind out 100 Prestige Points for each event pass. So if there are 4 events or 5 more events then that will be a potential 400 or 500 Prestige Points. Although I am not certain for sure.
Mortdog (NA)
: Nope. Each pass will include this.
So then by the end of the year you could potentially end up with 400 Prestige Points? Thank you for the replies! :)
Rock MD (NA)
: I'm confused. Say I wanted a prestige skin that's not part of the pass (KDA Ahri). The prestige points would cost slightly more than upfront buying the tokens for a battle pass-style Prestige Skin (like Kai'sa or Vayne)? Also, rough estimate how much money would I be sinking in then?
So from what I understand, you buy the pass for $10ish, you grind out to 1100 tokens for that pass, and then as a 1 time thing you can get 100 Prestige Points. Then you can get the KDA Ahri skin. But that is a 1 time thing across all event passes. So if you do it for this event pass, you can't do if for any other passes for the rest of the year.
: Reported for being new to the game.
All a report does is flag a player for the system to look at the chat log(s) of the game. As long as you weren't toxic or negative you'll be fine. You could get reported 100 games in a row, but as long as you weren't toxic, negative or intentionally feeding, you wouldn't get punished. (At least as far as I know.) So you should be fine.
: 9lp, really Riot?
It's because there is an issue with the servers, that people are d/cing and unable to reconnect to games, so they put in loss prevention.
: Game crash mid game, all participants
Yup! Just happened to me, I was in loading screen, I tabbed out, and then when I tried to get back in, it gave me a message saying to make sure my connection was stable and to retry again. Been stuck for 5 minutes trying to reconnect.
: I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT(2019) VS EVENT!
Prestige Fizz is gonna cost 100 Prestige Points.
: Dogs VS Cats
Skins usually come out on Tuesdays or Thursdays at 2pm EST. So I'm hoping today, seeing as the next patch comes out next week, it would be nice to have a full week to complete the missions attached to the event. (I know missions/events can bleed into other patches, but it would be nice to have a full week of an event this patch!)
: Ranked Loss Prevention if Trolls Are On Team?
No, it looks like for the past couple hours there has been loss prevented put in place... not sure why though... I won a game and only got +9 LP and the enemy team said they got loss prevented.
