Dehaka is sweet. But,I love that a no life neckbeard came by and downvoted everyone's posts. It's almost like he assumes that really matters.
nm1010 (NA)
: A few years back I proposed a champion focused balance system when league was in its prime (over a billion in profit). The idea was to has roughly 100 balance staff. Each staff member would be responsible for exclusively balancing 1-2 champions so that they could analyze their intrinsic strengths and weaknesses in depth. Then there would be heads of champion classes such as "marksmen head" that would dictate the general balance of the class overall. Finally, there would be a lead gameplay developer responsible for managing class interaction and overall game direction. This would have roughly cost $15 million, not including existing staff, or less than 1% of their profit and would be a significant improvement on the current 20(? Don't remember where I've heard that number from) people they currently have balancing over 140 champions.
How dare you assume a ceo should make .02% less than they already do for doing literally nothing?! He's got another lambo to buy yo.

Well, while it's still in early production. I've always thought it'd be neat to have an actual snake champion that's a jungler. Like . . . an actual snake, not that cassiopea crap. Like a big, monstrous snake that maybe even eats people/ monsters. I'm not sure I would lean on poison?? But it's possible. You could get ideas from the basilisk from harry pottee, or even Nagini? I think there's a lot of potential to make it a really solid champion. Can either make it an assassin with the the camoflague slither route with a coil snare/ stun. Or, you could go the debilitating poisonous route . . . can also make it so steraks + cleaver + cinderhulk or good buys on it and turn it into a giant python like champ that scales in size with health and acts sort of like camille? A big beefy champ that sneaks up on you and plays like an assassin, but is this terrifying/sneaky bruiser assassin lock down champ. Ultimate can be some form of hypnotizing CC(think jungle book) or the champion literally eating another champion? Could very easily tie this champ to the void, and or the jungle where Qiyana comes from. And instead of making it very Anime-esque/cheesy. You could go full brutal and terrifying with this champ (like reksai) make a fixation on its eyes + tongue. Slithering + maybe even tracking capabilities. There is a crap ton you can play around with, and ive always wanted a legitimate snake champion. Itd be sooo awesome.
: We gotchu, Angry! * Guqin Sona and Iron Solari Leona descriptions are on the way in a few patches. * Full Metal Rammus should have a skin description (checks sundial) today. * Officer Vi will probably get updated along with all the other Officer, Riot, etc. skins. Eventually. Be patient for that one. Blessed be [Carnival Knights](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/player/na/Carnival%20Knights).
I think KateyKhaos is one of the skin people, but can you pass this to whoever does the ahri skins + models? One of the biggest triggering things for me is the fact they "fixed" Ahri's out dated tail problems with Star Guardian Ahri . . . however, they never decided to carry it over to the other skins + her default when it'd bring a lot of quality of life to the character. I understand SG Ahri is a "Legendary Skin" BUT! Legendary shouldn't be just the literal fixes of an out dated model. There's a lot of potential to bring Ahri to life that's already built into the system. I just don't understand what's so hard about taking the time to do it? I mean just look at Jhin? He has A LOT of life built even into his default skin. He feels super good to play all through out. So does Akali. Meanwhile, you can REALLY feel the clunk that is Ahri when you play her default skin, and then swap over to Star Guardian. It's borderline Udyr quality. I guess I'm just over thinking this, and assume a billion dollar company would take the time to make one of their star skin sellers actually have a good rig to slap skins on, but I guess that's just me. I feel like you have a lot of opportunistic potential here that would really bring to life the new Elderwood Ahri skin that really doesn't take much effort to do while it's still in PBE. Also, you guys should fix her feet. They're still set up as if she's in high heels when she's not . . . I really hope you guys take this into thought while it's still in PBE.

: > Most bronze players are brand new/ kids/ older people playing with their kids. That's not an insult, that's a legitimate fact. There are exceptions to that rule, but for the most part it's a pretty consistent generalization. With what resource? And what grounds were there to gain in stating that 'fact'. Without context, mentioning this 'fact' means that you were dismissing their arguments and discriminating the player being a person who is "brand new, a kid, or an older player with children". So what if they were? What does any of that have to do with anything regarding the discussion? Are you saying that because this player could have been a new player, someone younger than you, or had children, that their arguments or comment wasn't pertinent to the discussion? If you have to answer 'not no' then you were being dismissive and therefore is against the boards rules and guidelines. _____ But sure, there are some posts that still utterly disgusting that remain but I can only imagine what the mods have to go through when they have to sift through all the thoughtless bullshit everyone wants to post on here. I mean I wouldn't want to lead a community that is so engrossed in pulling each other down rather than building each other up. And don't say, 'this is just how League works, it's toxic so get used to it.' because that's not on me or anyone else. That's up to the individual to either make or break the community they deem themselves to be part of. So if it's a toxic community you want, it's a toxic community you contribute to. Meanwhile, there are dozens, hundreds, thousands, of players that are doing their best to make the boards a welcoming place for talk and gathering.

I also reckon if League did another survey on the populace it'd be right on the money as well. What argument am I dismissing? That everyone who has a bad game should be banned, and everyone in League is a garbage trash can dumpster pile? I guess I'll retort with that anyone under diamond 3 should, effective immediately, be removed from the game. Does that sound appealing to you? There was no actual discussion in his post. His entire post was an extremely toxic + hate filled rant against the entire populace. The entire point of the comment was to make sure people were aware that, not only was he extremely new to ranked, it was also JUST 3v3 ranked, and not even solo queue and that he's ALREADY like this 20-30 games into his ranked career. Some one like that isn't even worth an actual discussion. And again, it wasn't even an discussion, just pure hatred and nonsense. Thus, it provides an ample warning to anyone that's willing to entertain even trying to rationalize with the guy. Guess what? As the posts piled up, my point pretty much concluded itself and nobody got anywhere with him. Just insults sent there way + a brick wall of negativity and hatred. If anything, the entire discussion should have been terminated immediately. You make excuses for said mods, but at the same time, nobody feels bad for the Mcdonald's employee that gets an entire tray of food thrown at their face for something someone else did. Hmm . . . interesting. **> "And don't say, 'this is just how League works, it's toxic so get used to it.' because that's not on me or anyone else.

I quite frankly disagree considering there are a plethora of people who straight quit the boards. I doubt there's even "thousands" of players on this board anymore. Maybe . . . 800 at best? If a moderator has an actual number of ACTIVE board posters that's in 1,000's I'll respectfully rescind my guess.

: High elo smurfing in low elo; Ruining matchmaking and 'legally' boosting people.
Honestly my smurfs are in Silver for maybe one game. I don't exactly approve of people going on lower mmr accounts for the sole purpose of smashing lower ranked players. However, the system also doesn't entertain my smurf starting in a higher mmr range. Only pros and streamers have that luxury to just straight start in diamond. But, on the flipside, I strongly feel people in diamond also don't deserve to have to play with me while I'm improving on a new role/champ, and so I create an alternate account for that purpose. So, unfortunately I have to play in silver for like 1-4 games, but by the 10th game I'm already in mid-high plat. So, while I understand your frustration, there's not much I can do on my end. But, I'm also not going to entertain plummeting my MMR to get better at another champ/ hard int oneside hard lose games for everyone else around in my queues. The population is so small that I'd be targeted as "that guy." It's a feels bad all around.

The majority of players at high tiers are players who understand how to play around and abuse these outliers of game balance. That's not to mention that it also requires a lot of dedication and time to reach and maintain a high rank (because after a while you will begin to decay). Most people who don't climb past lower tiers are there mostly because they aren't abusing the strong aspects of the game. There are certain aspects of the game such as trinket swapping, scuttle, certain champions, items, etc. and players at lower tiers do not utilize these. Myself personally, I never watch streamers, so I never know what exactly the "meta" is. I play whatever I feel like playing, and that's a big part of why I do not always win. So in response to what you are saying, I don't think it has anything at all to do with 'who is better', more so than, 'who abuses the strong or unbalanced aspects of the game'. Sometimes there is a big skill difference, but it varies greatly champion to champion and player to player even within the same tiers. Sometimes Challenger players cannot even beat Bronze players in lane because of how unbalanced certain champions are. There was a post somewhere not too long ago where someone in the top 10 players in NA lost to a Bronze player while smurfing because of what I just mentioned.
I'm diamond and regularly go on 6+ month breaks. I don't "abuse meta" and often play weaker/troll champs. I very rarely even know what "da meta" is, or any true changes to the game that take place and still regularly hit diamond. https://puu.sh/E1Ygs/4d6fe53704.png <-- You're welcome to tell me how I managed this winrate from unranked to diamond in a time period where ADC was definitely the weaker role, and I was playing largely undertuned champs into power picks. By your logic, I would be silver 5 with 100s of games played. Whereas the contrary, it's difficult for me to stay in silver, let alone gold/low plat for any length of time . . . regardless of how long of time I take off and however unfamiliar I become with the meta/builds/unfavorable champ roster. I will, however, agree that your logic does apply to a particular rank, but I'm here to tell you it's not silver. You won't truly start struggling with off meta champs until about d2. Around diamond 2 you'll lose more games than your skill would suggest off your pick, but is still climbable . . . For reference: If Lucian/Jinx/ Tristana are "meta" You will climb faster in diamond 2 than you would playing the 46% winrate Xayah, but it's still climbable . . . then once you reach Grandmaster/Challenger the difference between a meta pick and a non meta pick is highly exploitable. This is why it's really rare to see a non meta main playing in challenger, barring a few extremely demanding OTPS with high potential. Katarina is not the best champ to pick up and learn, and many will be stuck in low diamond, however a really solid kat otp can sit in challenger all day despite being a non meta champ. However, if Ashe isn't meta? An Ashe OTP will probably rot in d1/low master until she decides to become a Lucian main. But again, your logic applies only to the highest tiers of the game. Not Silver. P.S: The two games I lost with Jhin in that image were both open mids due to AFKS. Otherwise I'd have had a 100% winrate. Long story short. I disagree with your logic for anything below d2 range. But even then, if you're diamond 2, you probably play this game quite religiously and are tryharding for master anyways. So, it's expected you know a thing or two about the game, memes aside.
: The Coven line definitely has potential but let's hope it doesn't become like blood moon.
Not gonna lie, I haven't been interested in Blood Moon for a while. None of the champs have really appealed to me :/. In fact almost all skin lines have yet to really target any of my champs, except a couple lol. It's quite depressing.

Leetri (EUW)
: Maybe not early on, but you can definitely win later. I've had several games where I've been in last place the entire game because I got all of 1 item in total for the first 5 PvE rounds and I still ended top 3 because I could assemble a good enough team through smart decisions. I can't even count how many players I've seen get a 3-star Vayne at like round 2-4 and they still end up losing first cause they used all their gas in the first couple of rounds. This mode isn't a sprint, it's an endurance run. I feel like a lot of people forget that.
Key phrase is top 3. Not "I get first place" that means you didn't win. Fact of the matter is. If you roll a solid blade master comp, and you end up not getting a Draven mid game after you already lost to the 5 people rolling nobles. Then you're most likely going to lose more games. You Aatrox is 90% chance sitting at tier 2 with two tier 1s just waiting. So now, you gotta blow gold praying to rnjesus and truthfully speaking you may never get either one. Are you just going to sell your whole squad and pray to jesus again? Probably not. There was no skill involved in this. You just straight uplost to rng factors that are even worse than Hearthstone. Stastically speaking your best bet is for going nobles early on because the noble passive + garen beat out the over whelming majority of.comps, especially if you buy a single darius. After that you use the won gold.to do about whatever you want.
Ratpie (NA)
: I thought it was that random at first, but the more I played its more about patterns of play and cost-benefit decisions that makes the difference. Do you get some absolutely crappy rounds? sure. But if it was that random then there wouldn't be people who consistently win or get in the top 4.
You dont really beat someone who has a tier 2 lucian + garen + vayne with a pocket fiora level 4.
: I ran away from my home
Honestly, I hate to be the massive douche canoe of the situation. But, you're not old enough to initiate emancipation. Also, the overwhelming majority of courts favor women due to extremely outdated beliefs. In order for a legitimate case to be made, your Father would pretty much have had to do nothing wrong + be financially capable of supporting you solo + your mother not "needing his financial securities." And to top it all off, literal signs of abuse in the house hold. You can actually choose to initiate the custody switch, but in order to actually begin it. You'd have to 1. Get your dad to contact a lawyer, and also on these situations probably going to have to call the local authorities to explain why you actually feel unsafe + verbally abused in that house hold. If you're not exaggerating, and they are indeed just deliberately scape goating you and making you feel like shit then you have no reason to be there. However, nothing will be changed for you until you actually set it in motion.

I honestly don't know why you're giving them credit when we're in 2019 and literally EVERY OTHER COMPANY doesn't even have this issue, has not been DEMANDED to remove epileptic content from their stuff since the 90s cartoon shows. Video games are deliberately made these days in a fashion to AVOID epilepsy. Riot went completely out of their way, and then disregarded the minority and tried to skate on by until the threatening of lawsuits took place due to 0 advisory.

: Bro if he said that why is he still allowed to post?
I literally didn't. I used the fact that cops are allowed to shoot your dog if they deem it a threat, and if you retaliate they're allowed to arrest you. They just don't know how to read/interpret very well. As you can see by the literal post of the op. It's a skill set they've yet to acquire. fun fact, my significant other runs an animal sanctuary, and I adopt animals from abusive homes. I'd never literally tell someone that I'm going to kill their fucking dog.
: So certain mod deleted my post without even reading it and having idea what it was about
Oh look, another moderator that's going to get another love tap for being extremely lazy and incompetent. Don't worry though. I reckon you'll get a one day suspension like I did for calling them out :)!!! By the very same incompetent moderator!
: Morgana's W nerfs
I dont think people understand how boring it is to watch Morgana walk up with E just to push W on a wave and clear it instantly. Meanwhile go roam to some other lane and be back in time for the next wave. After this, Morgana obtains the ability to kill anyone barring a tank with just Q W and the only way you survive is QSS. The entirety of it is uninteractive and also unfun for everyone around.

There is zero chance you could do this to a legitimate diamond player. They've seen that type of cheese and will not fall for it. At most they would die to the first gank and that's all. The rest of what you describe could be done to low elo players, and even by silver the overwhelming majority of players will not fall for that degree of camp. Dying 12 times in 14 minutes is flat out inting. There are no ifs, ands, or buts about this.

Stop using false scenarios as some sort of an example, the things you hypothetically describe do not occur without being deliberate choices to ruin the game, particularly in diamond.
