What..... If you pick fill you will be playing 5x as many games. Literally picking roles is quickest way to rank up. I know... cuz I been playing fill llmfao.

Not sure they will. Some will..... but there are a lot of players who don't play that much. More than you think actually.
: New ranked system has nothing to do with impressing anyone. It simply was to fix the fact that the community as a whole simply could not play all 5 roles well enough for the old system to work. Autofill games were unplayable because of skill level discrepancy so riot was forced to act. The new ranked system isn't necessarily good per say, the community was just too bad to make the old system work.

: Riot's bias towards Yasuo, Lucian etc. really annoys me.
{{champion:236}} was literally shit for almost an entire season not that long ago. Where you come up with this bullshit? {{champion:236}} & {{champion:157}} champs struggling with design flaws. In the hands of micro gods they are amazing. For the average player sometimes not so much. Obviously right now {{champion:236}} busted since he has very high win rate even In lower elos. But you can't pretend like {{champion:81}} hasn't be busted as used as much or as often as Lucian. And when their weak, it usually cuz Crit adcs killing it. Then you have months of {{champion:51}} {{champion:18}} tearing it up. And you forgot how long {{champion:21}} had a crazy high WR? {{champion:236}} fun to play and has a lot of mobility which you need in this day and age which is why he so popular even when his win rate lower. But there are other viable adcs. Not saying {{champion:236}} isn't busted right now, but pretending like he wasn't relevant for almost all of season either 8 or 7 (can't remember) is. He usually has high WR and then eventually gets nerfed into the ground and stays there for 8-12 months. Just like a lot of champs. Only problem with mechanical champs like him is really good players can make him good even when he weak while most players cant so it's hard for Riot to balance. {{champion:157}} just a terribly designed champ that should have never been released. He was finally weak for awhile which was nice but like you said with new items he back to being annoying as hell. It does suck but... its the way Riot designs champs these days. Their kits full and can do so much while immobile champs just sit there and take it.

uuuuuuugggggggggggggggggg I hate how fucking bad this match fuckng making is. I've played 4 games today. 3 of them hardcore stomps. 1 good 1. And im fucking tilted now because lost 3 in a row and 2 were unwinnable. How the fuck are these people my "same rank". I am not going to pretend to be good at this fucking game..... but these fucking kids are so damn bad like wtf. You can't even do anything but play for yourself because team always going to let you down. But you keep forcing the game to 5v5 so we actually have to give a shit about our teammates. Problem is.... 1 can easily lose the other 4 the game its so fucking dumb.

New silver borders look even more than normal. So.... thanks for that! Really excited about having a shittier border because season been going for 2-3 weeks and ours ranks drop due to soft reset and haven't had enough time to climb :). Thanks guys over at Riot!

: Riot is trying to do new things with ranked and I think that's good. They're trying to make ranked a better experience for people and a lot of it is just experimentation this season. I think it's a good thing that there are splits because it actually gives people rewards to work for througout the season instead of just the end of the season rewards. If you're really worried about wanting people to notice your hard earned rank, just stop being a baby and work your way back to it. It's that simple. If you are really the rank you say you are, it shouldn't be difficult. Most people got placed one rank lower than they were because of the new ranks, myself included. The season just started and I'm already back to where I was before. You know what's better than bragging about reaching a certain rank last season? Doing it again and maybe climbing higher.

"it shouldn't be difficult". I mean you're right. Problem is.... it's the beginning of the season. And beginning of the season is literally a beyond cluster fuck of bullshit to have to play. So no... it's not exactly "easy". And people who say it is generally get extremely lucky and have no idea how bad it can get. I have been one of the "lucky" ones before where I got even matched games and shit felt ok and I ranked up quick. But last 2-3 seasons ranked been a nightmare. So no... it's not exactly "easy". Dumbest part is you hardly even play ranked... so you don't even know what we talking about so now I regret even writing this.

: Riot. Give Us Our Ranked Borders Back.
I think the dumb part is having the change so soon after season start especially when everyone drops ranks. I get why they don't want to wait for season end to hand out rewards anymore since you could potentially be waiting 10 months for rewards if you go up a new tier or two or w/e. But I am with you I think it was a dumb change. I think it would be better if they waited at least until first split was done and then gave out new borders after every split instead of having it dynamic. Now maybe... that's too much programming or too much work. In that case I still think they should have at least waited until after first split before dynamic borders came into effect. 3 months would at least be a decent amount of time to get back to your old rank or even rank up. But 3 weeks... is insane........ not to mention only a small fraction of players have even played their placements yet... I get what Riot trying to do they just always fuck up implementing changes lmao. I really don't get why they so bad at implementing new potentially great ideas. But yea... I hate silver borders so damn much I really don't even feel like playing the game right now because of it. I would really be pissed if I say got gold or plat or diamond, etc. for the first time in say last like April and then waited 8 months to get that new border only to have it ripped away 2 months later lmfao. Luckily (or unluckily) for me I have been shit at the game forever but at least manage to make gold finally in season 6 so I've had gold border for awhile so it wasn't 100% new to me. But I am still salty about it cuz.... I was stuck silver forever and hated that damn border every season and now I have one again for no apparent reason other than Riot a bunch of dumb dumbs.
: I severely dislike the new ranked system
yea it's a crap system. It definitely could benefit newer players or certain elo players where like change in skill really matters. I phrased that werid... basically a decent amount of player population could potentially benefit from new system but I ultimately think more do not. Like for me.... I have played the game since season 1. Yea (im low rank I know). But for me... this system adds nothing. I have ranked multiple accounts up to same rank using different roles. I have mained diferent roles, I am not a high enough elo (like a majority of players) for it to really matter. So all this system does is make more grinding for me. Really for most vets who started playing back when you had to learn every role to potentially rank up. Or really just annoying who is same skill at multiple roles regardless of elo. Even for others it does suck cuz autofill or playing other roles don't go to your main rank if you win, but also don't get a loss if you lose. I think it really only benefits people who hardcore only play one role and like 1-2 champs well. Pretty much screws everyone else over. Obviously there some exceptions but it definitely more of a grind for no reason. It can help newer players or people who are much better at 1 role than other roles. But I would argue that's not really great for the game. Because ultimately not enough people are going to play enough games to get their "actual" rank in all roles so it really won't change mming that much. Maybe in like plat + it will.... but for like 90% of player population games going to feel just a shitty as normal, but with more of a grind.

: This ranked season feels like its a waste of time.
Yea new system pretty crap. Game been complete crap overall since preseason 8. I feel like it's at least better now than preseason 8... but new system kinda fucks the "improvements" they made. Game hasn't felt competitive in years. I mean... arranged 5v5 does but that's all the game balanced around these days. But.... clash hardly ever fucking up.... so wtf the point. Yea... pro scene cool... but doesn't help that playing solo/queue & norms... you know... what made the game feels crap to play. Best fucking part is there adding new borders now too so you don't have to wait to get season rewards. Which... yea sounds cool UNTIL YOU REALIZE IT'S FUCKING ONLY BEEN WHAT? 3? WEEKS SINCE SEASON STARTS. uGG..... SO HAPPY to be back to having an shittier border for no fucking reason just like most people playing ranked currently. Or not playing it.... cuz it shit. It's so fucking shit and now we getting punished for not playing it.
: quality of games in bronze/silver elo
Cool to hear higher elo people at least mention what a nightmare it is. Honestly, it's a lot worse at the start of the season and I always struggle with it. Last season I let it really bother me and I got stuck for a long time.... also got my first chat restrict on this account and I've been playing since season 1. Ranked was starting to get to me again but took a step back few days ago and just remembered it early season and that I am not going pro in the game so my rank really doesn't matter. I just need to try and have fun and if I am not then I should do something else. Anyways, it gets better later in the season. People get closer to their actual ranks, less smurfs, less people coming off breaks. People have better read of meta.... idk it just isn't as terrible as first few months are. I mean... I really hate climbing through silver but it generally not too terrible later in the season.
: This is the most toxic season and it's barely been a month
it's the start of the season effect. Literally the same every season to be honest. Guess you just fortunate to not have experienced it yet.... but I have experienced it almost every season. Just have to accept it.

True I just feel like 1 patch is a little too quick. Give us like 2-3 months and I am fine with it. I know what it's like to wait 8 months to get your season reward when you move up a tier and that's not fun but.... fuck man going to the other extreme is also not a great idea. Don't see why it so hard for them to just do shit logically instead of to one extreme or the other.
: Ranked 2019 — /dev Update #1
I don't get why in 9.3 already we are getting new borders..... Season just started and some people waited a long time to get their border and now we supposed to lose it at start of season? I thought we got until at least like April until first split was done? Seems like a really dumb change imo. Most players are going to still be ranking back up since we drop in ranks....... like wtf the point lol. So for a vast a majority of players they going to have a lower boarder than last season or just get back to their prior rank. Feel like this doesn't add anything new or exciting. Yes... I am salty I will have a dumb silver border again but it really doesn't matter on rank does it? Like... if you were challenger last season are you really going to be happy about having grandmaster/master boarder.... when you may have spent a good chunk of last year climbing? Or diamond/plat. etc. I get you want to reward people sooner than right at the end of the season, and I completely agree with this. But give us some damn time to climb your rank system... you know it's intentional system to force people to climb anyways give us some time to do it lol. I guess this probably just an incentive "climb as fast as possible" but its really damn annoying. If you someone like me who plays consistently in a small mmr/elo range window then... it takes awhile to rank up. Hate feeling forced to rank up quicker to avoid seeing some stupid ass border I haven't had in years because you dropped my rank and force me to climb verse people of similar prior rank in a lower elo...... Its like if I was silver playing verse just regular silver players then fuck it but I am silver playing verse prior gold/plats. So although I get more lp it also harder for me to win and my win rate is lower than if I was playing silvers. I get we get our "ranked armor" that shows our prior rank but..... fuck man we literally just got rewards not even that long ago. Sorry I sound so salty I have been gold for last few seasons I just really hate silver boarders and don't get why we are "rewarded" with new shit when it's literally us getting shittier boarders because our ranks drop because start of the season. You guys always punish players who start playing ranked early in the season and it's bullshit because playing in begin of season is always the hardest. Its always the most chaotic plus we drop the farthest in rank I don't see why people who play ranked earlier in the season need to be the one's punished. Should punish players who wait forever to do their placements so they get a higher starting rank F those scared players.
: IMO 9.2 made the game pacing so much better & was a good patch overall.
Honestly as much as I have hated on this game over the last year I have pleasantly been surprised how season has felt .I figured it be even more of a shit show than start of season 8 but it hasn't really felt too bad at all. Still not sure if I like ranked positions but overall gameplay has felt better in my opinion.
: Ranking system changed/reverted
They pretend like it going to fix match making but...... its probably going to hurt more than help let's be honest. For a system like this to work you legit need people to play an F ton of games in each role, which won't happen. Plus when people "off role" they have an excuse to try less. If you main jungle and your adc rank a couple ranks lower then fuck it right? Like... do some troll picks do w/e. I get it might splash a little.... but it's not like losing a game in the old system. Such a dumb change..... right after making good changes. And yea.... like I get some people can practice more roles now. But fuck man they act like a good chunk of their player population hasn't played for years. And fine... call me low elo but I can play all roles at roughly the same rank. So this change does nothing for me at all and many others. It may help newer players but it going to be abused by higher ranking players sot he net effect going to result in same shitty match making. Not even abused just.... it going to suck lol. This season going to be same old bullshit of every season... but with more grinding if you want to play more than one role.... which is a majority of the player population. Only people who kinda benefit or doesn't really change for are role one tricks. But it doesn't really help that much either so.... I don't see the point like at all of this change. So mindlessly dumb.
: In all honesty, the overall problem isn't that the jungle role has too much impact on the game, per se, the problem is that if there is any major discrepancy in the skill level of the two junglers, the better jungler almost always wins. This 9.2 patch will make the problem worse not better IMO, as it makes the bad junglers - the ones who only know how to farm and not know how to gank - even worse off than before, and rewards the junglers who are great at ganking. You're going to see the phrase "better jungler wins game" become, unfortunately, even more true than it was before.

Better jungle wins hasn't been a thing since season 6 when it was the strongest role. Literally any role will win you the game if they are much better than their opponent lmfao..... That being said... jungle changes suck and reward people for ganking more... which sucks because that's not how jungle should have to be played. Titled from your "my jungle only farms". Probably since that was me this season.... but fuck it game was better when jungle farm mattered. Still had high win rate with {{champion:104}} so it worked. Not maining jungle in season 9 though... can't stand playing it anymore such a shit role. Sad part is if you pick fill you almost always get picked jungle or adc lmfao. Both the 2 roles I mained last couple years actually.... cool cool cool rito. What they really need to do is nerf support.. role been op forever.

Whelp, you know how people are. Gotta make up some bullshit excuse because it's never their fault > > .......must.....blame........anything.........but me......... meh I am not going to pretend like elo hell a thing but fuck man I had it rough last season. And ultimately it was rough because I switched roles a lot, tilted, and just wasn't as good at the meta. But last season was still brutal. People eventually got to their ranks but holy hell man haha. It took awhile for me to adjust & I saw other veterans struggle as well. People will never know what I saw. The huge losing streaks being #1 on your team every game only to have the by far #10 player drag your team down again & again repeatedly. Ultimately I got back to my rank and it would have taken less time if I didn't tilt & played my best role/champs so it's my fault. Still so frustrating though. I have never had less then 50% ranked win rate since my first season of ranked and this season I had 40% win rate most the season.... even got back to prior ranked after like 200 games with 48% lol. Now of course.... someone higher elo going to say "yo it you"... which yea ultimately obviously if I was low plat or diamond getting to gold like 4 (before changes) would be pretty easy. But that's the thing. If your skill level is say gold 3 on average and you are stuck jumping from silver 1 - to silver 2, your actual rank might still be gold 3-4 but to get a couple divs it can take some time. And boooyyyyyyy did it take some mother fucking time last season. I have never had just one sided games in my life so often. So damn brutal. Obviously if I just spammed {{champion:104}} jungle (especially later in season) I would have ranked up much quicker sooooo yeesss it's on me. But you also have to realize I play all roles but top at about the same level.... and many champs about same skill level..... so its not like I am first timing champs lol. (I know gold really low elo but just saying I have ranked up multiple accounts to gold last few seasons maining different roles & camps so when I say I know about my elo for most roles I really do lol). Sorry..... I know elo hell not a thing but season 8 legit broke me. The damage creep really messed me up games were so much quicker paced then I was used to after playing since season 1 my brain just never really adjusted. Was so damn frustrating lol.
: This game isn't fun anymore, its a gamble in each game still. Always onesided.
It's weird because I have been hating on this game for months but I have been having fun last like 3-4 days. Not sure why.... like the game is definitely shit compared to prior seasons but.... I am still kinda enjoying it. I think I finally mostly stopped giving a fuck and that has helped a lot. Been playing more normal and just playing what I want. I have grown to just be more patient and realize everything can basically one shot me so I just try and play patiently and wait to strike. Been playing a lot of off role {{champion:64}} just waiting to stike. Plus been abusing {{champion:3}} mid. But honestly... I don't care if he op.... assassins and other champs that feel so dumb to die to be strong forever. So having a champ that has cool downs and skill shots doesn't feel as shitty to play (although he is op as fuck). Like.... there no way he won't be pick/ban in LCS at this current rate. He going to be busted as fuck in pro. But idk.... I noticed last season to I had fun right before season started (so preseason). I even was ranking up in multiple queues had plat esimiated mmr at one point lol like I was really feeling it. Then season 8 went live and I had my worst fucking season ever hahaha (not lowest rank but just worst experience). I think its just right now since it preseason no one cares and that's making the game fun. But once season starts everything going to be a shit show again. Plus... these changes to ranked re going to be dumb as fuck. The extra tiers are w/e but rank by role + how bad they currently fucking up placements for new accounts..... GOING TO BE A FUCKING SHIT SHOW. Soooo yea best to just not play this game for months when season starts next week. It feels great doing placements on an account that had gold 2 mmr but didn't get placed last season being currently pre ranked iron 3...... but playing with gold players. But half the people in the game "bronze" because same situation but they all clearly gold-plat plaeyrs lol. Shit is so fucking dumb lol. I get mmr & rank different but..... when its 2-3 tiers different shit gets really dumb you can't even analyze opponents because their rank means nothing since their mmr so much higher than their "rank".

Rioter Comments
: I loved jungle in season 6 too. Now, I didn't like rageblade/devourer or Yi/Jax with 3.5k health running over your whole squad - but damnit. Loved playing Volibear and Udyr. Now playing Volibear (lul) sucks, and Udyr... miss pheonix flamedyr. Don't like pop your enemies super quick and be squishy as fk tigerdyr. Loved playing Pheonix Udyr and just chatting with friends while I farmed it up. Now our chats revolve completely around ganks cause if you don't get ganks off in the first 5 minutes you're pretty much trolling. No chilling/relaxing anymore in this game.
Yea man I miss the chill. I miss not feeling obligated to group with my team all the time over some dumb aram fight. I get in higher elos there was still maybe threat of baron or losing some objectives but in low elo there were always these just constant random shitty fights that didn't ever result in much. I could join and maybe grab some kills or just split and get some farm coming out eventually ahead of most the enemies and carrying my teammates. But now I feel obligated to join in these dumb fights because if team dies they can easily take 2 turrets if its like 4 enemies because turrets die so fast. Fuck I miss being able to defend turrets alone. Now you basically trolling if you try and sit under turret while enemy there. They will just dive you, kill you almost instantly and then proceed to destroy the turret within a few seconds. Yawn. O yea.... and 20 min baron is now like.. not even a huge deal its like almost expected lol. Whoever thought that was a good idea clearly has never played solo/duo queue. But hey...... makes them LCS games a little more hype right?.... right?....... Ugg. Look... I am a fan of LCS but if I had to choose never watching another exciting LCS match (which lets face it even before these changes there were still good lcs matches and even with these changes there are still shitty lcs matches) again or never having fun playing League again I would choose having shitty LCS over shit League gameplay every time. I miss having fun, not feeling like every minor mistake you made was like a huge deal. I miss being an item ahead and really feeling it. I miss being able to 1v2 or 1v3 enemies easily because they couldn't burst me down in like 2 or less seconds back when you were ahead. I miss when being cc'd for a couple seconds didn't mean you were auto dead (although you were at risk). I just miss League of Legends. Not this league of 1 shots bullshit. I can pretty much guarantee if gameplay was the way it is now back when the game came out this game would have died off fairly quickly or at least had a significantly smaller player base. I mean fuck..... almost all my friends quit playing it years ago because of some gameplay bullshit and shit balance lmao. I can't even imagine trying to get them into it now when there literally is no balance at all.
: Jungle needs oppertunity cost to ganking again.
Season 6 jungle was so fun. People hated season 6 because dynamic queue (fair enough) but as a jungle main it was fun as hell. And honestly w/e to those who say "yea well it was op". Yea true.... but I played so many roles that season and had fun playing all of them. I guess I just realize back then even with jungle being op the game was still fun. Compared to now where playing the game in general just feels fucking terrible. O yea... also.. after maining jungle for 3 seasons im done. Can't fucking stand that bs anymore. Fuck the scuttle crabs... just honestly fuck Riot. Bunch of idiots working there now or always. They clearly said fuck game balance forever ago. Surprised balance team still get paid honestly like... lmfao... you could hire people off the street and they wouldn't make the game any less fun. Or if they did it would be so damn immaterial who the hell cares. I agree honestly it probably make jungle op at high elo but... I really don't care anymore. This focus on LCS and only top like 1% of players literally ruined the game and is going to be the death of League. I really don't care if streamers are happy anymore because honestly..... from what I've seen most are miserable now anyways. I guess that was incorrect riots complete focus on arranged 5v5 (aka LCS) has ruined the game making solo/duo queue a night mare to play regardless if you high or low elo. When my boy imaqtpie doesn't end season in challenger you know the game is fucked lol. I don't know what other evidence is needed honestly. Play like 2 games of League and its very fucking obvious damage is way too high. Yet..... no changes for over a year. honestly.. from the bottom of my heart.... f this game.
: One of the Easiest Ways to Turn Games Around
Can't really turn a game around when it ends at 20 mins off one "mistake". ........ This advice was way better back when this was actually a strategy game and not League of brainless one shots.

: Creating a Friendly Environment Between Players "Honorable Queue"
lol.... what's with you kids and thinking Riot can just add queues. More queues = increased wait time, which Riot is not going to want to deal with. If you haven't noticed, unless it's something that regards to LCS Riot wont care. What makes you think they willing to make any changes that benefit players? lol. I would rather them spend any and every second fixing the game and making it actually fun again then making a worthless queue for people who can't be bothered to use the damn mute button if they don't want to see "toxic" messages. This game has been toxic since the start...... how are people still crying about this? Its not even as bad as it used to be lol. Plus... mute button and disable all chat so fucking easy to do...... I personally am only more toxic these days because I hate every second I play of League. Which.... I don't play much anymore. And when I say "toxic" I mean bitching about how bad the game has gotten in all chat. Which.... maybe that bothers some people most people just ignore it. There are so many more things wrong with this game making it unplayable than someone typing a "mean" message to you. Sorry fam. Mute works... it really does use it so we don't have to waste time reading these posts lol.
: Pretty shocking to see Riot not even talking to us anymore.
They have adopted the Blizzard model. Funny... cuz it's working so well for Blizz too lmfao.... GOD FUCKING DAMN it sucks man. Two of my favorite gaming Cos shitting the bed around the same time. Ah well all good things end at some point.
: I figured out why so many players hate Riot's MMR system (For Solo players)
I feel like the increased damage & increased pace of game in general has doubled down on this as well. In the past it was always good to try and help teammates but you could win lane hard and still be able to fight enemy players. But after season 8 and maybe even before that playstyle changed. It's still somewhat viable but much less than it used to be. You are now forced to fight global fights all the time because people die so damn fast teams can't afford to 4v5 ever. Even if you are ahead.... if you fucking misplay even an ounce your dead to people less fed than you. IN the past you could walk up to these kids and just wreck them but they can burst you down so damn fast if you get cc'd for a second regardless if you are ahead or not. Its trash gameplay. Riot sold out and the game going to die because of it. I have never seen people hate on the overall gameplay of League so much the entire time I have played it. And it's been for over a year now. You can lookup rank numbers from season 8 and see less people played than in season 7. Significant difference in EUW. I can guarantee those numbers will drop again this season as the game is just... not fun to play anymore especially for those who played it in past seasons when games lasted longer, there was actually a mid game, you actually felt ahead when you were ahead, etc. So mad at Riot for ruining a once great game. But at same time I have spent so much of my life playing it I am happy to not want to waste time on it anymore.

: I used to love this game and was as well addicted to it. Had thousands of games between season 2 and 5 but the game kept getting worse since then. And finally, this summer, I decided enough is enough. This is no longer the game I "fell in love with", so to speak. If y'all enjoy League of Legends - good. But I don't. In my mind, it's completely ruined and I don't see what's gonna make me want to come back to it. peace.

It was mostly me just complaining about the game in all chat and raging at myself for still playing the game. I even got my first ever chat restrict on this account.... that's how mad I was playing league last season. So enough is enough. Why play something I no longer enjoy? I am just sad because I know I would still be addicted if they hadn't changed the game as much as they have.

: Riot Balance & Design teams have cured my addiction
Not going to lie really surprised this blew up. Figured it just get buried in down votes. Apologies for any misspelling or bad grammar. Wrote this at work and didn't really think anyone would read it. It does hurt not enjoying a game I have loved for so long. But at the end of the day I know League will live on and I hope those who continue to play enjoy it for years to come. I am sad I may not be joining them anymore, but to be honest I have spent enough time playing League and need to start doing other things in life. Thanks Riot for the good years and maybe one day I will check back in and find I enjoy League again. But in it's current state I doubt I will enjoy it. Clash is pretty hype in my opinion. I would keep playing for Clash although everyone I play with hardly touches the game anymore so we probably just get destroyed each tourney but as long as we having fun it don't matter.

: What? You think he's an Iron player because he lost a matchup that is actually, purely a SKILL MATCHUP. Well that's rank shaming if I've ever seen one. Oh my God... I need to stop coming here...

You can just tell though man like... if people hardly move and just like walk into minions and just sit there they clearly new. Then you go to profile and see they just got placed fresh level 30 and have terrible stats. This shit happened more often than you think and this would be in like silver 1-2 games.... I get people like to shit on lower elos but there is a huge difference between someone who has played the game and is gold or around gold to someone just starting out. It's so hard to win with a player like this on your team and really annoying to win because the enemy team has a player like this (boring). Clearly placements a little fucked up that it can't tell fucking challenger smurfs from new players but. Once they fix that the system should be better.
: I hated season 8. I hated it so much I was really close to quitting permanently. Luckily, this preseason patch addressed many of the issues I** was having, and I am enjoying myself so much now.

I feel like it's completely the same. Darkharvest was beyond retarded. Now with nerf idk... where it at. So you just what? didn't like towers not having plating? I mean they still die incredibly fast but the plating idea is kind of cool. I am happy they buffed turret damage. But really other than that besides some ranked changes that really aren't even in effect what has changed? lol Like... the game is still complete shit imo as I felt the same way you did in season 8. I thought preseason & season 9 would change my opinion but all it did is confirm to me Riot is lost and will not find their way again.

: Would go against riots philosophy of faster games, so no

What made pro scene so good this season? Was it just weak ass turrets? They could reduce damage and pros going to have intense team fights either way but then weaken towers. Honestly it's not really perfect for solo queue but I would be a little more open to weak turrets and quicker games if fighting players at least felt like a fight instead of instant deaths. It's not like kill numbers have really gone up over last season especially in low elo. It's just fights went from being fun and entertaining to just completely numbingly boring. And yea... with weakass turrets, shit wave clear and strong baron nooob elo games finally now end quick as well. Which I have I don't completely hate but the fact that teammates and just fighting players in general feels so shit its not worth it. I think they could compromise. Keep weak turrets, strong baron, weak wave clear, but decrease champion overall damage lengthening fights. It's not perfect but could be the perfect compromise for both solo queue & pro.

: Neeko is surprisingly fun to play against
I think her copy a teammate ability is cool, but the rest of her kit tilts the fuck outta me. She is like a super oppressive laner. Isn't she supposed to be a jungler? She has crazy burst, a snare that goes through creeps and doesn't her ult snare as well or add to it? Find her annoying just like almost every new champ & reworked champ. The only part I don't actually find annoying is her copy ability.... although admittedly that's a lie as her using on herself like a lb passive is kinda annoying. It's not terrible it's just.... fucking another LB basically.
: Quick Advice To Junglers
I feel like am in an elo where these points are very obviously good and I try to work on them but can be hit or miss depending on teammate and opponent. Like.... some teammates want you to gank no matter what... which... idk man shits annoying. Others are smarter and don't want you to gank if too big of a wave. Sometimes opponents have good wards... other times they don't ward at all. Like... just have to read the situation I guess but I usually just go for a lot of ganks that shouldn't work but.... seem to work most the time cuz we low elo scrubs so shit don't matter lol.

: A team of mine is making a new game based off League of Legends (MOBA)
I wish you and your team the best! Long road ahead but I hope I can remember this when your game finally announced. Hopefully it all works out sounds like you all still have a lot to do and getting backing going to be tough. Wish it was out now though haha... can't stand League in it's current form. Luckily classic WoW supposed to come out mid next year so.... hopefully I have something to distract me from playing most of season 9. So sick of Riot's in game bs at this point. Its very obvious what most the community wants. Yet.... just ignored.
