: Yeah, people who main certain champions seem to overwhelmingly follow certain trends. Some of my favorites: {{champion:92}} : Almost always thinks they're BoxBox, usually the first player to ragequit as soon as they fuck up a trade and die, is always convinced they're God's gift to League and *anything* that goes wrong is *somehow* someone else's fault even if there's no *possible* way it could be anything but them misplaying. {{champion:55}} : Basically Riven mains who prefer midlane/AP builds. Their shitty attitudes are nearly identical in my experience. {{champion:157}} : 99% of the time these mains are toxic, self-important assholes who think their lane is the only lane that exists. The other 1%, ironically, is usually very friendly and fun to play with. Like Riven mains, they rarely understand this is a strategy game, not Team Deathmatch. {{champion:17}} : A crapshoot 50/50 chance of getting either someone who's just as shitty and toxic as Yasuo mains, or someone who's the most funny/chill person in the game. {{champion:67}} : One of my favorites because they're usually either A) Completely silent the entire game except for a single "gg" at the end, or B) the biggest trash talker in the game. The good ones are usually in group A, the shitty ones are usually in group B. {{champion:105}} : Kinda like Teemo, it's basically a 50/50 shot with these guys. You're either gonna get someone who's chill and responds to mistakes with "Nah don't worry about it, we got this!", or someone who... Well... Probably also plays Riven/Katarina, if you catch my meaning. {{champion:107}} : Probably a sadist. And, of course: {{champion:64}} : I can probably count on one hand the number of Lee Sin mains I've met in the 8ish years I've played League that *weren't* the most intolerable person in the game. Like holy shit, these guys bitch when they get fed and fall off, they bitch when they gank a lane even when their teammate has 10hp and no flash, they bitch when the team is losing, they bitch when they're not winning hard enough, they bitch when someone doesn't get insta-killed by their over-tuned ult, they bitch when they miss smite, they bitch when they can't win a 1v1 despite engaging with 1/3rd hp, they bitch when someone breathes wrong, the list goes on. Quite possibly the most fucking intolerable playerbase. No joke. Made even worse by the fact that Riot repeatedly panders to them because "LC$ Big Playz". It's very rare that I see a Lee Sin in the loading screen and don't think "great, there goes *my* fun for this game" at this point. Their track record for being fuckhead pricks is so consistent it'd be impressive if it wasn't so pathetic.

Katarina mains are usually quite friendly, but are quick to call someone out on some bullshit lol. That's my experience, and is why I feel into the community with such embrace <3. I will always love my Katarina, but lately I have been loving Akali. She is everything I was missing from League. Even with her nerfs {{sticker:sg-jinx}}

It is a meaningless item Yup but I think it stems for than just turrets are soft cause I don't think that is very accurate its that champ dmg is to high. It is quite easy to dive and get in and out before the 3rd shot is fired. Riot said they are working on lowering the dmg in the game but i haven't seen many strides to make that happen. We will see

Now that it matters a lot more, if laners don't care about their jungler recovering/getting ahead/ maintaining the lead, why should we? If your under this dillusion that junglers don't matter after 15 minutes and that's why laners can take camps then why can't junglers reasoning be your useless early and you'll get another in 30 seconds? lol Let's try practicing what we preach, I'm sure if I watch a video of your recent ten games Ic an count over 15 times you steal a camp that your jungler was near or going to post the 15 minute mark or even 20 if you want to play that game. Sorry, this comment made me salty. General rule, pay attention to the situation and try to do the most optimal thing. Even on champions like Shyvana I'll push a wave after a gank bring all minions to one shot for my laner to clean up so I actually don't just clean out laners, I'm just saying that this is a bit hypocritical to ask for when you steal from the jungler later and don't do it earlier only because it cost so much health to you.

Once lanes break down the jungler has just as much access to lane minions as laners have to jungle creep. Now if your laner pushes their lane out then leaves for chickens or something then comes back to lane, that is just fucked up. I have straight up gone to mid lane after seeing this at 10 min in and sat there for a while to steal a wave. Still I hear you there needs to be respect both ways
: As right as you are, keep in mind you're preaching to a group of players who're one of the only groups (if not the only group, I think it happened to Riven once too but I can't remember) to literally *have their champion rework cancelled on the PBE* purely because *they bitched hard enough*. That's not even an exaggeration, you can still find the Riot comments about it. They literally whined like children hard enough that Riot said "nah, this isn't worth it" and cancelled his rework, despite the champion being oppressively dominant in the jungle like he had been for season after season after season after season. Not for design reasons, not for balance reasons, but *purely because they didn't want to upset the Lee Sin playerbase*. **LITERALLY**. Lee Sin players are some of the worst players in this game when it comes to entitlement, rational thought isn't going to get through to them. They're as blind as their champion is.

Cuz some people do smite minions if they think the laner is gonna block their taxation, at least in low elo The thing is, as an ex jungle main, I think the idea of "taxing lanners" is idiotic. A support doesn tax the mid laner if they roam for a gank mid... It is the junglers JOB to gank and make the laners lives easier. After a kill and my laner wants to back, or they want plates, or we want to take rift/dragon. THEN I'll help myself by helping them clear the wave. However, laners also need to understand the jungler isn't their bitch. They can't whistle for a gank and expect them to stop blue buff and run bot lane. Also if they have prioity in lane and the junglers meet up at scuttle, its a good idea usually to rotate and help your jungler, js.

I'LL TRY! THANK YOU FRIEND! Update: This was a great idea, but they won't ship all the way to the US. I'm still hoping they come back out with the hat especially since it went out of stock so fast.

: There wasn’t much announcement for the release of the hats, and tbh I got lucky enough to accidentally catch some news about it in the official Na league discord server. I was just checking notifs when I heard a lot of commotion about new kda merch. It was just pure luck I stumbled upon it because that very night I bought the hat since I have a thing for rare hats. Next day it goes from low stock to sold out and I’m like “wow. I’m happy I bought it last night.” So yea in conclusion Riot could’ve announced the release of the hats because it is kind of unfair for all of y’all who didn’t find out about it until after it sold out. It’s not a great alternative but you could always buy hat replicas that are made by other people ^^.

Well considering how majority of their player base is low elo it makes sense that they would think about low elo from time to time. Just as garen doesnt get buffs because of low elo, low elo cant play certain champs like ryze because he was nerfed for high elo. Its a bit of a give and tug between the elos

I guess me one shotting everyone on the enemy team and getting a penta-kill as morde scared them away from the game... They haven't been back on since... The dmg is stupid high rn, riot said they will be nerfing it but im not really seeing any progress in that area. I thought they might start with the crit changes but those don't really feel like that big of a deal. Beside real problem is the mages that are so strong they might as well be called ranged assassins.
: I like the position ranked changes but I truly wish that more than just winning or losing was considered in your ranking. Being on a good team is completely random especially at lower levels. Feeders also play a huge role in whether you win or lose in the lower levels. Therefore, I wish there was a way to also include individual performance in your ranking points per game. Maybe the position ranking is a step towards this. It shouldn't be that difficult. Riot already has so many individual stats that you can see and already gives you a grade for your in game gameplay. Just one more step...
but think about it this way too. If something like this was implemented then, your kda would play a part in this i'm assuming? If someone has a defeatist attitude, they my opt out to just afk farming and avoiding fights at all so that they do die, but get a good CS score to get a "good individual score." they might be able to pull something like this off, but they have to be very careful to make this work out with little to no negatives.
: I'm honestly really excited about the prospect of position ranks. I can't wait to see how it plays out!
Same, plus idk about you but i have always thought "hm I wonder how good of a [insert role here] I am?" Now I get to know :)
: Still don't see an answer on how system deals with swapping roles and autofilled. I don't care that their MMR will tighten up as they swap more. I care that I will have this diamond swapped jungle in my silver games. And so far I see nothing to save this from happening. Same for trolls. If this lp splash is around the same as lp loss for dodging. You gotta be really naive people won't troll. So we need to see what exactly you mean by "lp splash" before season starts and we realize it is -3 lp.
I will say I saw a video recently about them discussing role swapping. They said they will be monitoring the situation and will implement changes where they see fit or remove the system all together if necessary. I'm not sure what they could do to effect the lane swapping problem, but i'm interested to see what happens in the future.

ADCs are so damn underpowered in ARURF, I only get ADC champions most of my games. If you don&#x27;t get an mid lane mage or assassin, you are not going to have fun or kill.

One champ this is UP in ARURF is Katarina... She already resets and has no mana, so like what? The only thing she benifits from is sometimes idiots will let you set up 3+ daggers and 100-0 them but thats happend once and I think they were iron 4 lol cause why tf woud you stand on 4 katarina daggers

: Is the Golden Spatula Club worth purchasing?
Personally, I don't think that it is worth the price. It if was like 975 RP then I would buy it, but I find it to be too expensive. Also I know if I buy it then Riot will think its okay to charge that much for such a short pass that doesn't really do THAT much. Like the best thing is you can reroll a few more often which leads to more wins ideally, which if you have the reveal pass = more tokens. This was the main reason I wanted to get it. Because I enjoy ARURF and I bought the reveal pass.
: Here's a thought: grant prestige points when someone gets an S (maybe even base it on their mastery with that champ to reward play past M-7) and have capsules and bundles grant prestige points and/or potentially a boost for the next day or so, making S's grant an extra point or better yet making A's grant one prestige point during that time.
I really thought it was going to be something like this when I heard about Prestige Points. I got really hype on the idea and then let they fuck down :/ if you get a prestige border at 5 S's after M7 and have other prestige rewards like that along the way would be dope.

: Yeah, we still need bans for ARURF....
I prefer the quickness of just jumping in. There are countless op champs and most people arent going to ban the ones that actually are just brain dead *cough* karthus *cough*. Bringing up the quickness of this game type, what I'd like to bring up is the braindead no ff mentality in this game mode. Like its legit annoying making a 10-15 min game last 25-30min cause the enemy doesn't know how to close the game out or don't want to cause its too fun beating the shit out of everyone

How does taking away "solo/duo queue" stop boosting or smurfs? If 1 person can pick their teammate then there will always be people who want to abuse the system and get boosted. As long as people can make new accounts, people will again abuse the system and smurf it out... see how neither issue is solved by removing solo/duo queue?

Same here except i start playing during season 3 so closer to 6 years of playing with a breaks lasting for a few months at a time when I realized league was taking over my life and needed to recenter myself lol. Besides would it really change anything? No, I don't believe it would. Most of the time I play ranked it's with only one person and they are around my elo. If I would be punished for that I would a very salty customer.

Which incidentally is what divisions are based on, the rarity and value of metals.
Oh wow, I just got schooled. I'm gonna trust you on this for now because you sound like you know what your talking about.

: Signed in just to upvote.
Lol I'm not sure why you got downvoted for making this comment, but I upvoted it to help pull it out of the negatives. In my book if someone hasn't already replyed "signed in just to upvote" then it's cool, because your pretty much telling the person "count this as 2 upvotes cause I put in work to make it happen." Now if someone already has posted it like theirs post instead of creating a new one accomplishes the same thing. tl dr: Thanks for the upvote, I appreciate it even though others seem to have an issue with it <3
: I love you, whomever you are. You said a bunch of what I have thought, in a way more elequent way then I was going to. I agree that change is scary to most people, so they resist. I also think that being autofilled will hurt your tank LESS. If I get autofilled to ADC, I'm going to be more willing to try my best to improve, because the people on their roles will be around my skill as an ADC. While I might be gold top, I'm probably iron ADC, and hate playing because I am miserable all game against one trick ez players. Plus, if I go into ADC and win, which will be more likely (because: math, right?) If I'm playing with people more my skill level, I have a 50/50 chance of winning while if I am playing golf adc's, I have a way LOWER chance of winning. I think that it's great that Rito is trying something new. And multiple times have said "if this doesn't work, we are completely willing to revert this change, but we wanna try because we believe it will be a positive influence." They did the same a couple years ago when they changed ALL ranked to flex queue. Most people didn't like it, but a big amount did, so they brought back solo/duo queue, and kept flexed as two separate modes. They want to try and improve the game and I say we let them
Aw why thank you. Much love to you too, friend! I'm just you friendly neighborhood fill player :), but still i couldn't agree with you more! As a fill main there is only one lane I avoid like the plague and that is top. It is the only role that I am complete ass at and idk why, but I just always lose when I play on that damn island known as "top lane." However, with the new set up I go in to my legit iron 3 top ranked game with confidence, and now I'm actually learning top lane! It's super exciting! I just fed as ornn top, but I kept the bleeding to a minimum considering they countered my with Yorick #rip. You brought up another good example of flex queue changes, I totally forgot about that, because I was still a very casual player at that time so I only played norms(ranked was way too scary for some reason even though I had been playing for years lol). I agree with letting them try to improve the game, because if the game doesn't "improve" it will get boring be cause nothing is happening, or at least that's the only way to keep the game perfectly balanced. Every time something is added to keep the game fresh they have to reevaluate to make sure it is still balanced. *cough* the excessive dmg *cough* Don't get me wrong, I get why it happened, Riot kept hearing that the community was tried of the tank meta so they shifted the game around a bit and things just progressively got out of hand, but i'm glad they are trying out some idea's to tone down the dmg a bit. Any how, until next time GL and HF on the rift! Your friendly neighborhood fill main, Dustpartical

: Lol seriously. Riot is a money hungry company and they have shown that to me now. THEY DO NOT care about the playerbase. They do not care how champions work since they are dumb. Akali can go top and destroy any toplaner. And the most tilting part is that when i was lpaying my ranked games. FIRST FUCKING GAME. I GET AUTOFILLED TOP. SECOND GAME??? HUH AUTOFILLED TOP. OKAY THE LAST GAME I PLAYED HMMM CAN YOU GUESS AUTOFILLED SUPPORT. I MEAN THE SYSTEM THEY HAVE IS R%%%%%ED. THEY HAVE SHOWN NO INTENTION OF FIXING THE FUCKING GAME. AND I AM TO ADDICTED TO IT. FUCKING PIECES OF. All they want is money and they do not care about us.................................
I'm sorry you feel that way, but I don't agree with any of it. As for Akali her win rate is dreadful right now, and she is still getting a nerf because of all the QQ. That being said I believe she needs the true stealth nerf she is getting, but the nerfs that came before all the true stealth nerf will not be rectified, so you'll get your chance to sit on many Akali mains soon enough. As for Riot being money hungry...I think that is ridiculous. They are a business first off, so they need money to keep the game alive and going. Still riot goes hard for their fans, releasing cinematics, comics, and continuously trying to balance a game with 144 champions (now that sylas is in the game) and fixing bugs. They make a lot of mistakes sure, but I have respect for riot, because of the sheer effort they seem to put into their game. I'm looking forward to them finally, nerfing all these insane dmg. I miss the days when a Tank could last longer than a few seconds in a team fight

: Rewards aren't anything special, but I love having missions to do when playing League none the less. Gives me a bit more of a reason to actually be playing League other then to just play League.
I mean 3k BE is a decent chunk especially since none of these are that hard. I didn't even try to achieve them and I got them all with like 10 games or something like that.
: Iron causing more harm than good Pepega
Not to mention that it legit makes no sense that iron is worst than bronze
: Still don't see an answer on how system deals with swapping roles and autofilled. I don't care that their MMR will tighten up as they swap more. I care that I will have this diamond swapped jungle in my silver games. And so far I see nothing to save this from happening. Same for trolls. If this lp splash is around the same as lp loss for dodging. You gotta be really naive people won't troll. So we need to see what exactly you mean by "lp splash" before season starts and we realize it is -3 lp.
Bruh I would cry if this happened on a regular basis lol
: Jan 24.
I thought it was the 23rd?
: What happens in promos if you get your secondary role? Do you just have a non-promo break game? Also, with all these positions, do you have to play a shit tonne more promos?
I'm curious about this too
: As someone who only plays 2 roles this different rank per position thing doesn't make sense to me, as getting filled will just make me not care, and with ranked lp splash will also hurt my rank if i lose, so at the end if the day it seems to me like it hurts my ranked experience no matter what, and as most of the comments or opinions i read or hear on the subject seem to be opposed to the idea, it makes me wonder if riot actually reads half the comments on these boards. i'm sure they do, but it seems like they don't as they haven't really addressed the back lash much other than saying they'll test it out instead of making it all season long
What else should they do? They can't promise it will work out, and they want to try this because they have confidence in the idea. People as a general rule rebel against changes. In fact, I think its safe to say the player base has something to bitch about at the start of every season. I remember when season 5 jungle changes were being introduced there was a lot of skepticism, as well as season 7 jungle changes. HAHA and now this season people are QQ about how junglers will be shit and not able to do anything. People expect the worst when they hear something new. I'm looking forward to seeing the difference and sending my input into riot as I experience it. But I would like to not I don't think the purpose in spliting the ranks is to protect you main rank from taking a hit because you played a role you weren't comfortable in, but rather to make the game me enjoyable by not forcing you to play a position you aren't familiar with at the same mmr that you would play your main role.
: Wait... You state that the change to fewer divisions and more tiers means "your rank more accurately reflects your skill and improvement." But the number of "slots" a player's skill level can fit into has remained the same: Bronze 1 to 5 + Silver 1 to 5 + Gold 1 to 5 + Platinum 1 to 5 + Diamond 1 to 5 + Master + Challenger = 27 different ranks Iron 1 to 4 + Bronze 1 to 4 + Silver 1 to 4 + Gold 1 to 4 + Platinum 1 to 4 + Diamond 1 to 4 + Master + Grandmaster + Challenger = 27 different ranks Basically, I see two changes from this: Statements like "I'm ranked Platinum" become slightly more specific, as each tier now encompasses a smaller portion of the playerbase. Players will need to play more 5-game promotion series for the same amount of progress up the ranked ladder.
Honestly when you put it that way that sounds way more tilting... Promos are already tilting when you get a troll pick or something when you just need your last win...
: I dont understand when they got the feedback that this would be a good idea. It promotes one tricks and just shuts down people that want to branch out and explore new champs. Its not as effective to play the entire roster of champions? that seems like a good idea riot, make people play the same way OVER AND OVER again, cause that will keep them interested.
The people who one trick, will one trick regardless of these changes. These changes don't reward you for playing the same thing over and over again. They only soften the blow if you don't get the role you have been one tricking to begin with. If anything, the way I look at it is people will be more willing to play other roles because the know know that if they play top (my worst role) they can enter the game with confidence knowing that they can hold my own because the game has been adjusted to their top mmr. Also since I don't care to wait forever for 1 role I always put Mid/fill so that if I can't get mid I can at least get into a game because if I don't get mid the rest of the roles are equally fun to play. Playing the same role over and over again gets old to begin with, so i'm thankful that if my top lane = wood 10 that riot will at least put it to iron 4 for me (which confuses me that it is worst that bronze, but that's a different subject) tl dr: People who find one tricking fun will do it, regardless if these changes stick around or not.
