: There really isn't any point to play her as she's the weakest champ. That's because she happens to be the only balanced champ in LOL; The other that I know of WAS Bard. Not sure why rito hates her so much thinking she was op at any point when she wasn't. She has no escapes, no cc, her dmg is beaten by a lot of other champs. Her hunt passive could potentially make her op but NO ONE WILL EVER REACH THE AMOUNT OF HUNTS for that. So that's no excuse to nerf her when in fact she needed a buff because she relies on hunts to get balanced. But it's very easy to deny her hunts, I think there's a pattern on what gets marked, and I rather not say but its pretty obvious. Really Kindred is a late game champ assuming she gets hunts which like I said easy to counter because she deals less dmg than others and is very squishy with no cc or escapes. A buff or rework on her abilities is a must I suggest: Stats - Her basic attack range should be 550 or 600 - Movement Speed should be 350 Passive - All monsters should be marked not just river and enemy jungle - Marking baron should start at around 10+ hunts not 6 - Actually randomize marks, rather not say why this needs to be done, but its obvious if you notice it Q - Increase hit range probably to match her basic attack range or half of it (optional - does not scale with passive increased range so it would only match her starting attack range) - Increase distance travel of vault by 25% up to 50% - Kindred should still be able to basic attack while vaulting W - Give True Vision within AOE even in bush / Or True Vision can only activate when in AOE and enemy is under 50% HP - Prioritize weakest and nearest enemy champion - Wolf should travel to targets faster/instantly and doesn't need to return to middle unless there are no enemies in range. Meaning if an enemy goes into AOE as the wolf is heading towards center it will turn around to attack instead of going to center. E - Ability should also act as a basic attack instead of just marking, doesn't count towards the bonus dmg. It just happens to attack while it marks. R - Increase the HP threshold for you and allies by 50%. So while enemies stop at 10% hp you and allies would stop at 20% - Enemies do not heal (optional) - Reduce AOE by 30%
These are some pretty solid ideas! I agree, Kindred really needs some buffs. For ult, I'd honestly be happy if you could position it more. As it stands, I usually end up using it next to a wall so I can flash/q away. Although, to be completely honest, I'd be down for a rework. Kindred feels more like Lamb than Wolf as it stands; it's like Wolf exists purely to buff Lamb (I call him Lamb's "pocket support" haha). That's just my opinion though; don't know what it would look like, just that I think wolf should get more love :P

: Riot's braindead ban system
When you say that "kys" lr whatever isn't even offensive anymore, you're looking from your point of view. However, if, say, someone was just having a really crappy day, or they were actually considering suicide, then you've just said something extremely upsetting. The thing is, you DON'T know who you're playing against. You could be playing with or against a child for all you know. So keeping it clean is important. How do you know that people aren't getting punished? They may have received some discipline you are unaware of, and ot may not be a ban. It may be a chat restriction. You don't know, unless you're friends with a bunc of people that tend to flame or int or whatever else. Flaming someone for underperforming is also just rude. Again, you don't know their situation. Bad games occur for everyone, and if it's that big of a deal, get a full lobby before playing. And finally: not everyone considers it worth their time to report, or closes out of the post game screen before they can. And, as you pointed out, some people just don't get upset by certain kinds of talk. I'm sorry you feel this way, but it's really that age old don't stoop to their level. If someone does or says something you consider worrying of talking back on, make a mental (or physical) note to repprt them for X, and mute them. That way you have your evidence, but now you don't need to keep putting up with it. I've also found that it tends to keep your head a bit more cool.
: Do not be afraid to report through tickets. Riot Support cares and hears you. Proof.
I have never once had a negative experience with support. Thanks for sharing! I think some people have one bad experience and don't try again, which is unfortunate because it really is super helpful and useful.

: Refund skins on banned account? If not, isn't that stealing on Riot's part?
If you feel your restrictions are or were unfair, it is best to contact support with the complaint. Being polite and patient can go a long way with the communication, and I personally have had great experiences with support answering my questions in a timely and personalized manner. As seen in other comments, this specific issue is addressed in TOS. However, this perhaps could be a better time to have a discussion on the redeemability of players and maybe even look at a new system, as my understanding is that if you've received the suspension and go a while without being reported you can still be permabanned (please correct me if I'm wrong here).

It did however become a convenient method for power if it is part of your playstyle It was designed that way with draft though?? Give an take. Blind you don't know what you'll see, but neither do they. Dradt you can both see and ban and counter pick. Counter picking is very viable but regardless, if you have a champ you know how to play well amd tale the time to learn your enemy, it can make any match even out.
: Learn to play counters. Hell, half these champs can counter each other. There is a solution, which, if you're part of the Dark Souls community, you might be familiar with: _git gud, scrub_ (Except Sion. He's actually just... dumb.)

He's actually just... dumb.) Honestly though haha. Everything can be countered if you know how to counter them (though I may hesitate to say yi can be lol)
: Champion is kind of awful atm, there are jungles/comps that she'll do well again, but its a very narrow list, and most meta jg's will fk u up. Make sure you're not prioritizing the marks over effective jungling. If you have priority already in the area of the mark, go for it. But if you frequently take risks to get marks, you'll find yourself punished and behind (enemies can see those marks to) and too weak to contest further marks. Instead focus on the areas you can gank, and try to keep them marked and gank frequently. Counter jg to keep yourself always ahead of the enemy jg, you have to be able to duel most enemy junglers to be effective. You have very effective at getting drags and rifts so they should be a priority, you do not want to fall behind in the early because you will lose in the late. Game became pretty fk'd this season as far as variety goes though so mostly I would just really recommend not playing the champ unless as a side pick into teams that it is actually good against.
Thank you for the advice! Only thing is, Kindred is the reason I got into league. I eagerly showed my boyfriend "all these adorable lamb and wolf drawings, so eerily beautiful, I love the 'never one without the other' quote" and boom I was introduced to league haha. I know they're in a bad spot but I can't make myself stop lol. Hoping for a rework soon though, haha. Until then I can limit my Kindred games.

: When will riot admit they made mistake with Pyke as champion ?
Agree to disagree. I played Kindred and popped off several kills on an Akali today, which I typically wouldn't expect. And Puke can be annoying for sure, but you start to see his patterns and now how to counter. You dodge his grab and watch out when you hear spooky music and see his little circle around you and if you play careful he shouldn't get much of a lead. Personally I'd say Master Yi is my biggest concern as a champ right now lmao.
: I got 14 day suspension when I just literally spent this whole year trying to get to plat....
I have personally had many great experiences with support, so that's probably the best way to go. Unfortunately those guys are always going to be around, but I'm sorry to hear about that. As long as you weren't flaming or being overly toxic I see no reason why you couldn't make a good case (and why they shouldn't have at least a warning fir acting that way).

: Bots
Maybe what could happen instead is an advanced mode? Just because I wouldn't want to play against a Yasuo in my first few games, even if it was a bot.
: Is being Autofilled the Reason i keep getting Chat Banned?
If you feel it was unjust you could always contact player support and ask about it. I've definitely seen much worse than that, and while that would generally be a set of messages that would make me upset in game, the punishment does seem a bit severe (unless you had other instances of that behavior).

: Why on earth should mages be forced to buy an AD item. Please tell me this posts all sarcasm..
They're trying to make the point that people shouldn't complain about building items to a champion's strengths because it's annoying for people that have to face that champ. I agree the anology could be worded a bit netter but if you read past the initial part he explains it a bit more.
