: Can't believe this is banworthy
Heh, 40 years from now, it will be a different word. "R word" will retire back into use along with idiot, stupid, moron ect into the list of words used in precisely the same context (these words were used historically for the same description) Society is odd. I don't use it personally because it bothers people, and not using it doesn't hinder me in any way as other words are nearly literal synonyms in context.
Boomer (OCE)
: Can't believe this is banworthy
The part I have never understood, wether it's here or among people: Every replacement word that people angry about the word tell others to use, are historically and factually representative of the same implication. It's strange to me how the word itself matters and somehow the context doesn't.
: Riot ruined smurfing in Season 9 and it's killing games for both smurfs and non-smurfs

'streamers don't have time for' 'aren't interested in' Half my youtube alg is D+ people doing ' iron to X ' over and over again lol
: It's really lots of fun going against smurfs repeatedly.
OMFG YOU DUO QUEUE in a game where that's an option and you'll likely face other duo queues? For damn shame.
: Wait the team that banned 5 supports got a punishment???
Here is the real answer: Egirl joke, bm, strategic play ect? Not relevent. Infantalization is not activism or thoughtfulness. Were the players actions within the confines on the mechanics of the game? Discussion should be over. Bm me within any aspect of the game that follows the tos. Do I want you punished? No, because I am not a child, or in any way weaker then you. Anything else implies that I am.

EtheI (NA)
: Honestly, what's the point in PBE?
Allow me to explain the purpose of the pbe: It's so people like me can play test things, so we know what's what. I've been playing since the beginning, and have never been punished in anyway. Other notables: -I have never finished a ranked placement series on SR in ten years -I haven't played more than a small handful of normals on SR in 3+ years -I'm still garbage at the game ten years later, still having epiphany moments about stuff old champs have always done I am obviously the perfect type of player for delivering feedback about balance and bugs I hope this has been informative and fulfilling to read.
: Even if they just gave use Hexakill, Nexus seige, Poro king, dominion, ascension, one for all, and doom bots, i would be extremely happy. Ive been playing since season 3, and i couldnt care less about playing ranked.

Stratixx (NA)
: Petition to bring all Rotating Game Modes to custom!
I don't even believe them with the new client issue. Too many instances in the past of them saying things like "the community doesn't want that" Instead of "no we aren't going to spend resources on that"
: Riot really need to stop fucking putting us in the same team with the trash players we reported
After reading the op and what got dv's I'm a step closer to believing the stereotypes about the boards. As if who you reported for poor play not being factored into match making is a shocker.
Moody P (NA)
: Galio is a mess of a rework
People were unhappy with his old ult having nothing to engage beyond flash. What about tying his current E into the old ult? Also, the healing/protecting ally thing being associated with anti mage(his old w?).....maybe have it be based on the ap of the target you have the spell on?
: Sometimes, I wonder why Rioters no longer respond to us, but the answer has become more apparent.
I have never bashed the balance team. Reason being that no matter how absurd I find the balance, or the game state, I am not a game designer and they are. Only issue I've ever had is certain kinds of transparency. Back in the day, many of us complained there were no other maps, and custom games weren't customizable. Riot response: The community doesn't want that. (ahhhhh, no, just say no. Just say we don't want to divert resources, don't say crap like that, lol) The other is game direction. It's obvious its done for a different and perhaps new target of players, in order to preserve the games life span. But just say it. Say it, and say like it or beat it. I'd love that response much better.
: Try thhe champions you thought are OP first, before you complain about them in the forums.
I've tried them. I am too terrible at them repeatedly to have that sway me at all, let alone give me much insight. Also would always ban Akali in any top or mid situation. In terms of potential and annoyance Zoe, yas, Irelia are who I would really ban. But Akali gets the ban, because with the others, no matter how badly I get outplayed or bs'd, at least I could see and target them while it happened.

This is among the reasons I don't play ranked. I cannot and will not play jungle. It's an auto loss, and ruining the game for 9 people. I don't like support either, but I taught myself to do it on a most basic lvl to get by, albeit poorly in sake of fairness. Jungle, no, not going to happen. There are plenty of people who want to jungle out there that they don't need me ruining a game.
: Lemme guess... he was just trying his best to win in the way HE thought was best... lol
You make it sound like you did morg some sort of favor by not reporting that kda even if it was a bit worse. I wish people understood...yeah the system is bad, but you dilute your ability to report with that stuff.
Tyre (NA)
: @Riot Why is the Death Recap that's been broken for years not being fixed or reworked?
Same answer as every good question about game features and other content: Our data shows you'll play it anyways.
Hibeki (NA)
: If riot wants to stop allegations of game states they need to start providing actual info.
I think this will be ignored like most things. Remember this is 2018 in a game where you can make custom games you can't customize. (I remember the hilarious 'the community doesn't want that' explanation that was given the one time they responded to it and to new map requests. It's part of the 'meh, data shows you'll play it anyways' model And in a weird way, I sort of don't blame them. I'd prefer they told it like it was rather than pretending people don't want it or the official sounding fluff, but from a business end........we make our own beds by continuing support.

: All Gamemodes on Custom games.
I love it. The only argument that can be made against it imho is resources in implementation and balance ect Regular mode que times and population isn't relevant. Waiting time in said mode is the burden of the people choosing to make the custom. I want to play hexakill so bad heh :/ Don't count on a lot of support as most are more concerned with their ranked games and the state of the game. Applying influence for more to be available and customizable in custom games has never been out strong point.
: Yasuo is a very overbearing opponent.
Imho: My own minions being an agency for accidental/incidental skill shot dodging. Yes, I know sometimes it's skill and they meant to dodge. No the above is not always the case. I feel like there is nothing skirmishy about being able to swan dive into an enemy zoc, and have all the tools to stay there and remove the other player with endless forced trades. Too crappy vs others of his type, too good vs everything else. *I play mages and for some reason windwall has never bothered me that much. The shield probably more so and even that not so much.
Thryale (NA)
: What is Teemo?
Imho: His w is lackluster, and his e is garbage. I'd remove w, and give him a conditional on hit movement speed boost. (Nothing over the top, we all know what mallet teemo is like) If he needs to keep stealth as part of his identity, make it very light watered down version of twitch stealth as an active ability. Maybe a passive that has to do with granting conditional enemy jungle vision beyond his shrooms. (Scout theme)
Joppalo (NA)
: What has happened to ARAM?
2500+ games on 2 accounts, past few months feels like the system wants me to have free champs 8/10 games. Go ahead and roll, it will be another I don't play.
: I wanna jump in here to say that I think a lot of what OP is saying here is valid and true. Runes were never a good experience for players. They were basically a barrier between you and your ability to be really competitive in ranked, and the only way to overcome that barrier was by grinding. Not really "pay-to-win" but more like "play-a-crapload-to-get-on-at-least-even-ground." Now that we're removing that barrier for all players, people who had to go through the gauntlet feel like they got a raw deal. So, for that reason, we do think it makes sense for us to give a little back to folks who went through the gauntlet to get runes. That's why we're rolling out the rune rewards, and emotes for players based on how many hours they've played. I think we're open to the idea of doing a little more for veterans, but it'll have to be something like giving you something cool that lets you show off how long you've been in the game—giving away tons more BE just isn't that feasible. I want to be really transparent about our thinking behind the rune rewards, because there's definitely a lot of confusion around that. I think we've screwed up by repeatedly using language like "investment" around runes, because they were never meant as something you literally invest in in the hopes of getting a return on. And we're for sure not going to do a full refund on runes, because we don't think that replacing a system with a better system should trigger a refund on the old thing; That's not a precedent that we're going to set. Plus (and this is real talk mode cactopus), the fact is that us giving away IP has consequences. IP/BE is worth money for Riot—giving it away cuts into future champ sales. We can pretty closely estimate how many RP-based champ sales we'll lose over any given time period after giving away IP, and I want to make it clear here that selling champs is a huge part of the way Riot makes money so we can reinvest in the game. Also, by merging the runes and masteries system into a new, free system, we're already investing in a major upgrade to the game. This costs money, but we think it's worth it for the future of League. So, the goal with the rewards we've announced is to recognize the time you’ve spent getting Runes and reward you fairly for it, without going overboard. That's why we're doing what we're doing. One more thing that I've gotta call out is this idea that you're only getting back 12% of what you spent on runes if you bought them before 2017. That's just not true—the actual number (depending on which ones you bought) is a lot likelier closer to double that. I showed how to calculate your rune rewards in this reddit comment: https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/6xga15/riot_pls_leveling_ip_and_rewards_nexus_league_of/dmfpgdi/?utm_content=permalink&utm_medium=user&utm_source=reddit&utm_name=frontpage I hope that makes sense.

I'm happy to follow up and answer any questions y'all have. I 100% respect the honesty about the business angle. (As opposed to when we asked about more maps and got the reply "the players don't want maps" (lol) The explanation makes perfect business sense, and I'd have been far more receptive to it if you hadn't repeatedly sold me IP boosts lol.
: Riot wants feedback on Yasuo. (Friendly conversations inside pls) What makes him fun/anti fun?
Dash, windwall, in that order. Wind wall doesn't bother me as much as others it seems. I mean it is a little absurd on a mobile dmg dealer imho, and making many many champs simply not have an ult is crazy, but not as annoying to me as the dashing. And I also only really play ranged squishy champs. (But in combination together it's uhhhg) Let's get to the dash. It's the laning, not even the later game or team fights for me that bugs me As someone else pointed out, being less safe in your own minions is ridiculous. Second aspect, incidentally/accidentally dodging skillshots. Yeah sometimes they e to avoid them. In many cases though, no they don't. I know many a yas watches a skillshot fly by as he dashed and thinks, good thing I fly around like a parakeet on acid or that mighta hit me! I think he needs to not be so lackluster vs characters of his type, yet not so oppressive to so many other things.

Hi. I am also bad. Lol. Especially considering the age my account. I sum a small bit of it up to neurological issues that prevent me from hot keying well, as I can usually only have 2-3 total. (Finger movement) The rest is just being bad. Here the thing though: Don't listen to that 'how can that even be' stuff. That will just tilt you. trying singing. Are you bad ?practice. Do it for 5 years. Are you still bad? Probably. There's some things for some people that are not simple cases of experience. There is often either a certain level of natural ability or there isn't. The best case scenario is not giving a crap. (While remembering that cannot extend to sabatoging others or not trying)

: Asheron's Call is finally closing down
That game holds my biggest and best gaming memories and probably always will. It's been my game to go back to time and again a very thing else always ends up sucking in the end. I have mixed feelings about the act they sold accounts in the last fee months even, when I feel they knew it was coming. This company is the poster child of wasted resources, wasted potential, and responsible the death of one the most unique and great stories in gaming history. I read how proud they are of their legacy and I seriously question if they should feel that pride. Particularly when there is already talk of going back on what they said about releasing the code. Wonder game, excellent story, and a legacy of wasted potential.

Stop with the rigging thing,. Politicians on both sides of the fence do this all the time, never mind the fact that no one has any way of knowing if it's true. Yes it can be embarrassing to always claim that, like why participate right? But still it needs to stop becoming the new pejorative. This goes for mocking the idea external forces may have heavy control of things. Sure maybe they don't, but if you know anything at all about the cloak and dagger underbelly of how the world works this is not some hilarious claim.
