: Bans
Well, people who have climbed to higher ranks probably don't want to have their hard work completely gone to waste because they ran their mouth. Once they get a warning, they straighten up. About 60% of the population is silver or below, .. so getting banned at that point doesn't really hurt so much.
: explain it more? it sounds like how hunter mechanics works. but it would explain what each champions ults does. or you want to ping the enemy ultimate timer how long till you can steal it again?
I don't think they should have any mechanical function at all. Rengar's icons don't have a mechanical fucntion, they are purely informative, colored icons show targets who have not been taken down, and grey scale for targets that have. (Maybe clicking on the icon will ping the timer in chat?) Originally I wasn't even including the cooldown in this suggestion, but I don't really see a reason it couldn't also be included. Even if it is just a 'pie indicator' like how Kindred's icons show the cooldown for when she can mark a target again. It would be useful. The more important thing I am looking for here is the tooltip. In the same way that a player can move their cursor over their own abilities, moving their cursor over the respective enemy champion icons would show the tooltip for that champion's ultimate with Sylas's scaling numbers.

You know, .. as odd as this probably seems, .. continuing to shout "YOU'RE FLAMING ME" .. can be construed as flaming. If you really wanted them to > Ajmonster101: stop talking to me and you were > Ajmonster101: seriously im just trying to play A good decision would have been to mute them. I get it, it's hard to just ignore people when they are placing the blame on you when you feel you don't rightly deserve it. And to be clear, I'm not saying that you did deserve to be flamed, you didn't. ... but by responding, you are only "feeding the flame," .. and now you have yourself a chat restriction. That is the lesson here. ... Don't feed the flame.

They just make a new account and start to grind again. They're losing nothing. They may not be able to sell THAT account, but a ban will not prevent them from making a new account with a different email / summoner name. This is exactly why most bot accounts have odd summoner names like Steve1879453 (I don't know if this is an actual account). If this account gets banned they make Steve1879454, and start over again. The program they are running is most likely running several bots simultaneously and runs games back to back. They just want the XP and to increase the odds of a some of those accounts not getting banned.
: Why can riot stop scripting but not bots?
Bots are most often very new accounts, pre-30, .. as the whole reason for botting is to grind an account to level 30 so that it can be sold. What does someone lose when a bot account is banned? Next to nothing. All they need to do is generate a new email address and a summoner name, then they start over. I understand the frustration though. You probably don't have enough MMR yet to be out of the bot pool. Keep grinding ARAMs and the frequency will drop off significantly. I don't remember the last time I've seen a bot in ARAM.

Obviously my ideas are not complete. But rioters can think about it and put on their own ideas and actually create something that actually helps. That's my goal, not to get my perma off, I want a better game, without the negative atmosphere.
Why do you think people would be willing to create a new account to circumvent the permaban, but they wouldn't create a new account so that they can troll in chat too?

: On another note, if you voted no, and another person voted no, the match wouldn't have ended in surrender xD Unless you mean in previous surrender votes too?
Lol yeah, that is actually a good point. I had a match where I was the only one that didn't want to surrender. In my defense, it was an ARAM match, so ... why surrender? The matches are designed to be short, and it will either end on it's own relatively quickly, or it will drag out long enough that a single ace can mean a 100% comeback. So I found myself at the honor screen realizing that they all voted to surrender and thinking (which was flawed logic at the time, I admit) if any one of them had not surrendered I could at least honor them, but since none of them did, why should I honor anyone?

: Calling it now, no Ranged Champion is going to buy Wits End
Well, .. I believe that is, in part, their goal. Close-range ranged champions could still make decent use of this though. Urgot comes to my mind as probably the best example. Graves and Rakan are probably the next two I might place into that category, but neither of which typically prioritize attack speed.

They also have a shorter amount of time to design skins for champions that they didn't have a previous concept for. Worlds was in early November and they probably gave them some time to decide on what champion they wanted and design input. And ..... "They're in the same place" ..? ... why is this a thing anyone cares about?

: Such strong argument... In the same topic I said bans are good change, eh, stupidity of this community is one of the reasons game is dying.
My point is that your summoner name makes you look like a sit-in protester. Of course you have some agreement with the current state of the game, or you probably wouldn't continue to play it, .. but the fact that you disapprove of it enough that you essentially dedicated your account to be a passive "fuck you" to Riot, doesn't really help people to expect that you genuinely want to see positive change.
: It is part of my own dealing with diffcult people to moniter the behaviours of the accounts I report. Its a level of self satisfaction as well as a reflection on "were they really toxic or was i being a baby" - since then I have had better games and have seen MOST of the worst offenders just stop playing. It works for many. If you can move on, kudos.
So you need Riot to agree with you in order for you to feel justified? First of all, you aren't guaranteed to know if they were actually punished or if they just decided to stop playing. Second, even if Riot notified you that your report triggered a review, it wouldn't guarantee that they ultimately decided to punish the player, or the form of punishment implemented. This is exactly why Riot has tuned down this notification to the point where I'm not even sure they send it out anymore. It inspires vigilantism, which Riot feels is unhealthy, and it creates doubt in the system for situations where punishment is given in a way that doesn't out-right ban that account. I'm sorry that you can't move on because you are placing a burden on yourself that the system is not designed, nor should it be designed to accommodate.

Yeah, I guess it is amusing, .. but then you're just hoping that people will want to spend money on a joke skin. .. Which, ... some will, .. but, I am not sure they will find it worth it overall.

: Yes and no. If your opponents don't take any risks, killing them will be hard without some "surprise" factors. One of them being most of the time vision. Denying vision leads to unexpected jungle ganks, roams, easy dives and, overall, easy kills. I think everyone had a match where they were behind and lacked the vision to even go in jungle without being murdered. From the opposite view, knowing opponents level of vision and having vision across the map can lead to very easy picks for your assassin or team. All in all, kills do offer an immediate bonus (lots of Gold), but vision (or lack of it) becomes one of the main factors in killing an opponent.
That is true, .. but I could see the argument going either way. I honestly don't like the idea of a rune simply becoming "kills = stats" If that is the result, fine, .. but I think there should be something that makes this situational or ties to vision in some way.
: I think they’re removing the ward count to give the other runes more viability (as in you can choose to try and snowball off kills or choose to play more around vision not necessarily getting the best of both worlds in one rune) although the Ghost Poro change leaves me wondering if anyone would ever take zombie ward over it cause I hardly see it as is and Ghost Poro just seems like a better version now
I could see that, but now it is just, .. "more kills = more stats" .. It has nothing to do with vision control. And I do acknowledge each tier doesn't need to be related in regards to the same gameplay mechanic, .. but I really enjoyed how this tier seemed to do that and I would prefer to see others adopt this trend than to see this one lose it.
: Wow, time really flies huh? That's a long while back. Alright, my new devils advocate then: Removing Vision is it's own reward. That may sound like a dad like answer, but, Riot has already stated how powerful they see Vision as, and how back in the past, vision has lead to a lack of risk taking. This is why Riot seems to have a vendetta on Vision already. You're already rewarded with removing the enemy's safety net against Ganks, and suprises, I wouldn't be surprised if they thought that was reason enough to not need to tack on extra damage, a sorta "Win more" reward.
You are already awarded a lot more from getting a kill than you are for taking down a ward.
: Yeah, but wasn't that introduced before Duskblade got it's Vision passive? I'm rusty on my patch timeline, so I could be wrong, but it's just free damage for any assassin who isn't ahead, but can afford a Duskblade. Now if you want to get your full amount of damage from the rune, you need to get a collective 20 kill contribution, which is like, a lot. So it's kinda less damage in the early game, which isn't what people here want?
The Blackout passive was added to Dusblade in 6.22 Runes Reforged was Pre-Season 8 This rune should reward players for denying vision from the enemy. If that leads to an early power spike, that is perfectly fine. The game SHOULD NOT be completely centered around champion takedowns. Vision control is a very important part of the game and should be encouraged / rewarded.

: ARAM wombo teamcomps not fun
I've given this some thought because it does seem like certain champions are more common than others. The first thing that you need to keep in mind is that the "random" draw of champions is only selected from the champion pool that the player has ownership of and the champions that the player does not own from the free rotation pool. As strange as this may seem, some players actually crate accounts that they plan to only play ARAM with. With this intention, they will only acquire champions that they prefer to play in ARAM, making the odds of one of those champions being given to them as high as possible. Their own rerolls and the ability to trade with teammates further increases these odds. Also, you must remember that it is also likely that at least some of the champions that make up the free rotation and the other champion pool are taken up by the opposing team and their rerolls. Theoretically, as many as 30 of the possible 143 champions can be taken by EACH team and there are no duplicates on either side. That means up to 59 of the total champion pool can be eliminated which increases the odds of a player getting 1 champion that they prefer to play. So, you're correct that it is not truly "random" .. but it is done this way because most players don't like to play champions that they don't know. I have all of the available champions, and I will gladly play ALMOST any of them that is given to me, .. which is actually why I enjoy ARAM, because sometimes I simply don't want to pick who I'm going to play.
