: Minimap.
The think that I try, .. and most often fail, .. to do when I'm laning (I'm more often a jungler) is to look at the mini map every time a new minion wave enters the lane. That means I should be looking at the mini map at least once every 30 seconds. It generally takes about 30 seconds for a champion to walk from one lane to the next if they are walking down the river. What you are looking for is how many enemy champions are showing on the mini map. Lets say you are playing top lane and you are pushing the minion wave into your top laner's tower with them under it. When you glance at the mini map you can only see the two bottom lane champions. There is a chance that the enemy jungler and / or mid laner are coming top to relieve pressure for their top laner. This is not always going to be the case, but simply not knowing where the enemies are, means you COULD be in trouble. Alternatively, if you are in the same sceanerio and you can see the mid laner, adc and support are all in their respective lanes, and you know the enemy jungler was recently spotted on the bottom side of the map, you are fine to continue to play aggressively. If you are over extended and you notice that there are no enemies showing on the mini map ... RUN!

: link to passive information?
I don't actually have one. I've seen people talking about it on the boards. It was probably on the PBE for a very short amount of time or mentioned by a Rioter on twitter or something. Basically, when she kills an enemy, they leave behind a frozen statue that shatters and deals damage to surrounding enemies. Sounds neat, .. but obviously it is complicated and potentially very strong.

: “Online interactions not rated by the ESRB” It’s sad, but it’s true. If a parent doesn’t want his or her child exposed to offensive content, then the child should not be allowed online without supervision.
The only reason that exists is because they must acknowledge that people are likely to violate their ToS by behaving in a way that would not fall within their rating. If they didn't say that and someone experienced the toxicity that exists within this game Riot could be sued for a lot of money. That does not mean they condone or tolerate that behavior.
: How about parents watch their children when they are online? You ask an impossible task from Riot.
I'm not asking anything of Riot. I think Riot is doing a great job because I agree the task that they are trying to manage for themselves is impossible. What I am asking, if I'm really asking anything, is that the community stops making up stupid excuses for why this behavior should be allowed.
: Fair enough. But: > Nobody knows how old any other player is. The people you are chatting with could be as young as 13 or younger. No one should be younger than 13 playing this game. And if they are then that is *their* problem for ignoring the ratings. Its like making an adult movie,but then you get asked to remove all the mature scenes just because some people watching aren't adults. So whos problem is that? And should the producers really remove adult scenes because of that? *They* rated the movie,anyone watching below the age requirements should be disregarded
To answer your question, the producers would not be responsible, ... but that is kind of my point. The producers (Riot) are responsible for eliminating the content that is not suitable for their audience, which includes 13 year olds. Eliminating the toxic and verbally abusive behavior from the game is their job. So when the community continues to excuse this behavior and inject it into the game, it is like passing pornography out at a children's movie. That is a ridiculous analogy, but I think you see my point.
: So your basically applying this thread to teenagers
I'm applying this thread to the community. Nobody knows how old any other player is. The people you are chatting with could be as young as 13 or younger. Being a teenager doesn't make it okay for someone to be verbally offensive.
: Litteraly ages below 18 are considered "young". At least in america
: I believe it's a result of how we grow up and learn as humans. Although parents/guardians/teachers can do their best to tell their kids what is or is not acceptable children are still going to run around and discover things on their own. Be it testing things that were not taught or testing if what they were taught was right. Hopefully self-preservation has kicked in by this point and they don't test something that ends up seriously hurting them. This curiosity is not limited to kids doing stupid actions but also pertains to social etiquette. With social etiquette it takes far longer (if it happens at all) because the benefits and the consequences are much more intangible compared to the lessons learned from questions such as, "What if I eat nothing but candy today?" or, "What if me and my friends start playing with fire (literally)?".
Right, and that is where Riot steps in. They are telling us that this behavior is not acceptable in their community. Sure, even in the real world, we adults can casually say "well, they're just kids" but we still are still expected to teach kids to be respectful, including administering punishment when they aren't. When we make excuses for them, and allow it because "they're just kids" there is no reason for them to change their behavior. As adults, it is generally more acceptable for us to behave this way because we have a stronger understanding of the consequences of our behavior. For the most part, adults aren't blatantly disrespectful in the same way a child would be.

Its sounds like your referring to 11- year olds at best. Becuase i don't think 13 year olds are like that. That sounds more like "little kids" than anything.
The point is that they are disciplined because they are young and swearing. I'm sure there are all ranges of discipline from spanking to having your cell phone, television, computer, or car keys taken away.

: Toxic players don't like being toxic either, you think they want a chat restriction? No, they want a victory and most toxic players; to you know how the game is meant to be played, toxic players don't blare out and type the toxicity that they have, if people like you listen to them early on :) Example: *Teemo vs Darius early, who wins? Teemo or Darius?* heres another, and my favorite matchup as Teemo. *Teemo vs Pantheon early, who wins? Well, if you put things as abilities into account you can see that Teemo's Q outranges Pantheon's Q by 50 so when Q is up poke him.. btw, Pantheon passive "block" doesn't block Teemo's Q.* So the next time a Pantheon in your team says "@#%*・+%・#・ THIS TEEMO HELP ME" thats not being, toxic. Thats being *Tilted* my job there was done. 😂😂😂
You're suggesting that someone's knowledge of the game is somehow linked to their toxicity? That is an interesting idea.

No, .. I'm quite sure that I literally said that there are less games with toxic people than games without toxic people, but it is perceived to be more frequent due to human psychology. Even if every single TEAM had one toxic person in it, that would still be 20% of the total players on any given team being toxic.

Lets ignore he did all of that UNDER A TOWER. A ranged, "squishy" mage building mana tank and still doing that damage, a "squishy" mage literally face tanking multiple ppl under a tower. Sounds fair.
Watch it again, friendo. He only 1v1'd Diana under the tower. Then he destroyed the tower before the trio showed up. And yeah, he was tanking the tower with 100 armor from Frozen Heart (the most armor from a single item in the game) 65 from Iceborn Gauntlet, 20 from Ninja Tabi, and 80.5 armor from Viktor's base stats at level 16. I also can't tell if he has any armor from Runes, but it is entirely possible that he has Conditioning as well. Viktor has +4 armor per level. That is tied for the 4th most aggressive armor per level scaling of ANY champion in the game. Many of those that he is tied with are melee champions, and Bard, Nami, Anivia, Swain, Lux, and Annie are also ranged champions with the same armor scaling. He is tied with Swain for the 3rd most total armor on that list behind Bard and Nami. So again, he has a shit load of armor. Towers don't mean much to him, .. but if he was fighting the trio under the tower he would have died. Honestly, any tank that built this way and got this ahead of the enemy team could probably do this. He happens to have the effective health granted by the shielding in his kit and from Archangles to maximize his effectiveness against largely physical damage sources. Also his kit has great synergy with the mana and the bonus AP he is gaining from Archangles and Transcendence (I don't actually know that he has Transcendence, .. but if he doesn't, .. he's an idiot) .. He's still going to be able to dish out some damage. Here's an idea, ... maybe you should try this and see if it is as easy as it looks. That would actually be the best way to get Riot to nerf it. If statistics show that a champion is dominating by being played in a way that Riot really doesn't intend for them to be played, they will nerf them for sure.

: Riot needs to address Intentional Feeding and Severe Toxicity - Inside the Mind of an Int/AFKer
I'm voting 5% to 9% because a large majority of toxicity that I see in my own matches and in the matches that I see people talk about on here comes from one of the five players on a team and it is directed toward one or more one or more of the players on the same team. There are of course matches where nobody is toxic, and there are certainly more matches where a second player responds to the first with their own toxic behavior. I also understand that every negative experience is weighted more heavily than a negative experience. So when you have a match where a player is toxic and two matches where nobody is toxic, .. you still feel like a majority of your matches had toxic people. > Side note, .. I feel like I've said 'toxic' way too much already So it is my belief that it happens much less often than it seems, and that there are significantly fewer players that are toxic, or that would be toxic if there wasn't someone to start with them, which is not an excuse, but if this didn't happen I think it would be less common.
: That's very obvious. The thing is that's so unnecessary to say it confused me. That also goes for Ranked, flex, aram. You're not wrong, but if that's the case i see absolutely no reason to even bring up draft lol.

Rexxiee (NA)
: It this how viktor was intended to be played?
Sure, why not? I've seen Viktors this fed literally one-shot some pretty sturdy enemies with a single E Q auto. Why is this so much more "broken" Because he can tank tower shots while stacking armor? Because he is able to out 1v1 a Diana that is 2 levels lower than him? Because he can 3v1 a decently farmed Jhin that is still a level down and is dealing physical / true damage, (Again, he is stacking armor and his shield and Archangle's grant him effective health, and even still he chunks him pretty hard), a tank Udyr that is down 2 levels and is pretty behind in gold, and a Nami that is 4 levels down? Then he ended up getting assistance from Sona after the Nami got too close and got blown up, which now makes this a 2v2 around the same time that he gains another level on his enemies. Then an even further behind Jax shows up just in time to rush into a 2v1, practically gift wrapping the quadra. Yeah, .. what's wrong with this?

If you really think they both have just as much weight, why not tell someone to do a flip instead of killing themselves? Someone that tells someone else to kill themselves is obviously intending to give a very different emotion. And for everyone to say that the expression of these phrases means nothing, ... why say them at all?
: I don't know exactly what you're saying, but what it sounds like to me is that you're telling me the chat is the same and delayed on draft too. I don't quite see why that matters what so ever though because in Draft the role is automatically assigned. I've never had a situation where Draft roles were assigned differently between players, if that's what you're saying. Though other than that all I'm hearing is that the chat has the same issue, which I don't believe has any correlation with Blind because Draft has roles pre-selected.
{{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}} The issue that you are concerned about is caused by the players' respective ability to connect to the server. I'm telling you that there is absolutely a chance for players to have a noticeable delay between the time that they connect, and other players connect with the same lobby. The reason I'm saying that this ALSO happens in Draft is because .. well, it does, .. but you don't notice it because 1. roles are already assigned, so you don't need to call roles, .. and 2. there is a delay in the lobby that allows for the role assignment animation, during which time most players will have connected.

If you want customizable rune pages, you need to purchase them with BE or RP. There is absolutely no intention whatsoever for the preset (keyword there) rune pages to be customizable because that would essentially be giving you 4 free rune pages. There should still be one blank rune page. New players literally can't use some runes without needing to buy a page. That's kinda dumb.
: It is absolute bullshit that you cannot modify preset runes.
I agree with you. I have an alternate account that I hadn't played at all this year and I decided to load in and play a match just the other day. I understand why they have preset rune pages, but it is pretty crazy that they don't give you 1 free rune page without needing to buy it.
: Uh. That does happen, but the same thing doesn't happen in draft with blind? Just look at the images of the chat I sent. Why is my jungle appearing inbetween Zengelelele's Mid calling, but not appearing for Bigeyewillie. That's what i'm questioning.
It does happen in draft. There is an animation time where roles are being visually assigned to players. During this time all of the players are joining the chat lobby. It is pretty rare that all players haven't joined by the time this animation is completed, but I've seen it happen. The Interwebs ain't perfect.

"It said on my friends chat and mine we were both in the game through the join lobby thing. The thing that doesn't make sense, is why do we both see Zengelelele Mid call 3 times, yet on my screen he calls it 3 times but I have my dialogue that I entered in the chat which said we were both connected to inbetween it. Though Bigeyewillie didn't see any of it, but he did see j earlier before HereTheShadow joined." With that information I don't see how we joined in a different order. That just doesn't make sense.
See my other comment lol
: "Everybody knows"
This is why one of the first things I do anymore when I see a post where someone is complaining about how a champion is too strong, and they're suggesting changes to that champion, is to check their match history to see if they even play them. It's a little funny (and equally frustrating) that someone could try and suggest balance changes for a champion THEY HAVE NEVER EVEN PLAYED! The most likely case is they played against someone who has a lot of experience with that champion, they got shit on, and they are mad about it. That's fine, .. but before you go telling everyone that champion is broken, .. try playing them! If you have played them, and you end up destroying everyone and you still think they are broken, .. GREAT! Now you have some actual insight!
: That makes logical sense. Personally I think most people play blind though because draft takes like 10 minutes to get into a match then someone ends up dodging last second wasting too much time. Blind lets the matches come by faster. Just something I wanted to say, that's all.
Yeah, and that is fine. It honestly doesn't even seem like you're really complaining about the fact that you weren't guaranteed to get the role that you are wanting, .. and I apologize that my other comment probably looks like I was giving you grief about, .. but the same thing happens in Draft matches. The fact that you have told the system what position you want, it decides for you and tells you, and the draft process gives plenty of time for your whole team to enter the lobby, all make it so that you don't even notice. When Riot upgrades to Quantum Servers, we will all just know, .. you know? {{sticker:zombie-nunu-hearts}} Lol jk

: This is how broken the match making is...
... So you are a gold player and you are playing against silver MMR players... and you're clearly a OTP, with 2 parallel account worth of experience. Many silver players don't really have a OT champion or even a main role completely figured out, and when you are being matched against players that don't have the MMR that would suggest that they are ranked as high as you, .. It seems fairly logical that the odds are tipped a little in your favor here ..
en2que (EUW)
: I still dont know why blind pick still doesn let you pick a lane. You rarely get your lane in blind pick and end up on the worst role you are. They even have the tech - Nexus blitz was blind pick with lane assignment. There's no reason for blinds to have lane picks withing 2-3 patches other than Riot deciding that blind wont ever have lane picking.
Blind pick is intended for new players that don't have enough champions to have their pool banned out completely, and probably don't have established main positions yet. Each team is able to ban 5 champions, potentially eliminating 10 champions before anyone is able to pick. If you happen to be the last player to pick a champion, 9 other champions could have been selected. It's extremely unlikely that the 19 champions picked are all champions that you have, but just in case, you would need to have access to a 20th champion or you simply can't pick anyone. Blind eliminates this because you could have the same champion as your opponents. That is literally the whole reason blind pick exists.
: Blind Pick Lane Calling
As already said, players join the lobby in a different order. You most likely sent all of your chat before they even entered. It sucks, but that is how it works. Calling lane in blind is really more of an honor - system, and it really doesn't have any merit. MOST people will accept that you called a lane first so they won't fight you for it. Some won't see that you called it and think they called it first and they will fight you. Others will see that you called it, and they won't care. You're 130th level. It's pretty unlikely that you don't have enough champions to play Normal matches. If you really care what lane you get, play Normals, otherwise, ... come to terms that it probably won't matter if you called a lane from time to time.
: Why do afk farmers not get punished?
Doing nothing but farming in lane and actively avoiding fights is not technically a bad thing. They are denying pressure against objectives, and in theory, they are less likely to give kills (gold and experience) to enemy champions. I also typically hear people complaining about junglers that afk farm. I'm not aware of any champions that are NOT capable of clearing their whole jungle with time to spare before one of their camps respawns. So if they are really doing nothing but farming, they are either literally afk sitting there(which is punishable), or they are invading and farming the enemy's jungle, .. which is helping the team by denying resources from the enemy jungler, potentially putting them behind. **Neither of these are ideal strategies.** Ganking and responding to pressure across the map are WAY more helpful to your team. Unfortunately, there is no fair way for Riot to distinguish between someone that is intentionally being unhelpful and simply making a bad decision, and therefore there is no way for them to really punish someone for doing so ... without EXTENSIVE history which includes the matches where they are responding appropriately and refusing to respond at all. Chat logs might also provide evidence against them.. Also, they might be accused of 'bot-ing' or if the behavior is so unusual for the player it could be assumed that their account is being accessed by someone else.

With how much defense she has built in? The shield from her Ultimate? That is literally the only defensive ability she has, and in order to use her ultimate she is usually needing to move closer to enemies. Otherwise the only things that could loosely be considered defensive is her ability to deal damage from longer range, simply having ranged base attacks, her auto targetting Q and the massive range of her E. Her W gives her movement speed, and stealth when it is evolved, but during this time she is disarmed so she literally has no offense at the time.

: Skin for sure. Bristle should stay a boar, hell, next year is the year of the pig and Sejuani is literally the only champion we have in the roster to represent that zodiac. And the bones make her look more like a prehistoric hunter than an actual competitor for the crown of Freljord.
Good point, expect a Lunar Guardian Sejuani skin. That actually sounds pretty awesome.
: Replacing her boar is something that doesn't feel right imo. Maybe Riot should opt for something like what they did with WIllump and make Bristle more a beast that would live in Runeterra rather than in our world.
Bristle is not a boar in literally half of her skins (counting her default)
: I think this visual concept on Sejuani can be good,what do you think?
Sekai makes a good point that it isn't a boar, but she does have a skin where she is riding a bear, a lion, a dinosaur, and a poro, .. There could easily be a skin where she is riding a wolf / sabretooth tiger.
