: Announcing the 2016 Challengers
Why am I seeing Korean characters in the chart?... Is, is this... KR?
: It wouldn't be so bad if it was just once in a while, but out of the last 8 hours, around 12-14 matches vs beginner bots, its been every match, i even saw one lvl 30 player end with 51/0/2 and the match was over in like, 10-12 minutes, just the one player could have beat it by himself and pretty much did.
I understand. I've gone through it as well. I can only say- Good luck to you man, and uh.. welcome to the hell of league.
: Why do we have placements on PRE_SEASON? And we need to do it again on the start of S7?
I have no idea why placements, it's probably because of the new ranked queue (flex) but it's useless. At least it will help some kind of way for your tier next season after the soft reset.
: @Riot any chance of an ETA on "Sandbox Mode"?

: I thought players vs bots was to learn?
It's probably because you're at that level, or during that queue they were the only ones that riot could queue you up onto during that time. Also, bots under level 30 are mostly likely to be "farming bots" that aren't human players either. (tbh even I sometimes just join bots queue if I'm sick and tired of dealing with other people) To get better at this game, I always played 1 v 5 against beginner bots and they help; you could normal queue as well since that'll match you up against similar levels. Try ARAM if you have time; I liked it a lot and gives you opportunity to try out a variety of items.

: First time unranked MMR starts at Silver 3 and unless you lose all 10 of your placements there's no way you're getting bronze. Looking at your past games its clear that you're not playing at a silver level. If you had played 20 more games this season you would have demoted yourself to bronze. The system takes at least 100 games for a half accurate ranking.
Man, you made the climb to gold! What you've said is why I didn't bother to climb or play any more ranked games. I guess I will have to play more normal games over the next season and hopefully get into a higher tier. I only play ARAM, and have about 90 wins in normals which I know is absolutely useless.
: forgive me for not knowing where else to put this. What day will we be able to play ranked again? i guess a better question is when does preseason start for season 7, assuming that ranked will be available on that day ?

: 2016 ranked season ends
First placements ever, went 4/6, Silver 3. Happy anyways, since I was expecting bronze tbh..!
: First time Ranked with Plats?
Status update: HA! Got Silver 3. Pretty happy, since after 6 losses I was expecting bronze!

: Road to Pre-Season: Practice Tool in the Works
L4T3NCY, I know this is kind of off topic. However, could you add a feature which you can see your ping from the client itself? Say, it's frustrating when you get into game and realize your ping's just.. high.

: Let's talk about Plants!
I am ready for this change. Very experimental but who knows, maybe a honeyfruit plant could change the game and the teamfight. Cheers to everyone working hard to make changes happen and looking forward to an awesome Season 7!

This is so cool. Made me appreciate all the effort that goes into broadcasting. I've never thought deeply enough about all that stuff. D:
: It looks like long but in reality this number isn't that massive. Their are still a lot of champions that are still using an older model than that. Overal I don't think the Summoner's Rift Visuals should be on their list anytime soon. Add least not in the years to come.
: More like 1.5 years.
True. The reason I wrote 2 is probably because I added the pre-release date as well. Anyways, it still feels like it was yesterday.... And tons of people probably joined after the visual was updated. That's creepy.
: The latest free champion rotation was released over 2 days ago. Feel old yet?

: The Keybind Wars: Which Key is Best for Flash?
I'm just gonna be serious out of all the puns here... (I'm korean and I guess I'm the anomaly LOL) The reason I put flash on D is because it's closer to my skills, so the faster I will be able to hit it than hitting F. I used to put ghost on D before I had flash. I put {{summoner:30}} on D as well. I guess D=mobility? And the reason koreans all use flash on F is probably because koreans generally tend to stick with others so since everyone puts flash on F they better put it there too. aaaaand please. flash on d for Dodge.

: "Oh nooooo, Dominion is goneeeeeee. It was totaly my main game mode, I only play LoL because of it!"
tbh, i've been playing dominion because it's getting removed and it's quite a decent mode. sad it's going away anyway. *never plays dominion elsewise*

: Unfortunately, keeping Dominion available in Custom games still has the same cost as being a matchmade queue. :/ We have to ensure all champions work with capture points, items, etc. The art on the map is also far behind what we'd consider the 'quality bar' for League nowadays. It would be a herculean SRU level effort to bring it up to parity (when we could better spend that time/resources doing something awesome on SR instead).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PT1WNjngs-s Watch this video for a moment of tears and respect. To a gamemode that could've been great. I just hoped that riot would show some respect towards Dominion. I can clearly see how much effort went into this mode, but it wasn't ever really promoted..

: Can we get to the 100 wins before it goes down? i was at like 90 wins :[
nay, they've screenshot it, which means there's no way. :(
: If i win 100 before febuary 22 can i still get the icon
nope. people getting the icons are already decided.

: can we please get a permanent URF queue now? pretty please? with cigars on top?
That's what riot JUST mentioned; it's literally the motif of this post. >it’s clear today that alternative game modes work better in short cycles rather than as standalone queues. Please read the announcement before typing, thanks.
: It really should have died when the Dominate Dominion gave up. This is entirely Riot's failure to support their map and players, not the fault of the community, however.
: 999 Normal wins, I request the Rioter that made Fizz please
Oh, the irony. http://puu.sh/n2T9a/4ed2cc6da8.png
: Well, I have no life, so I made it to level 30 in less than 2 months.
Well that's a pretty grand accomplishment :o I wish I could do that..

: I'm sorry to tell you this. But, unless that's a smurf or you feel like spending a lot of money, you'll never get all of the Champions until about 3 years from now (maybe less than 2 if you are dedicated enough to play to get 2,000 IP a day or about 23 wins a day).
I hope league is alive 3 years from now... I don't think I'll ever get all the champs. That's why we all want to go to the PBE... *huehuehue*
: The new player experience is really, really crushing. Recently did a new account (this one) because I didn't play league for a long time and I wanted to recover some stuff because I forgot them. Oh god. Oh god!!! I got back to my old account. I went to lvl 24 but it was terrible. So many champions, runes, and, as you said, the time it takes to reach lvl 30.
That's true. Runes... runes ;_; I'm broke after buying runes... I want to buy champions but runes took all my ip. It's also horrible how the system matches you with either people who are too good or people who are too new to this game. Hopefully the new champ select has cleared things up.

: First 10 levels go a LOT faster than the last 10.
This was how I felt. My smurfs on other servers are mostly over level 10 even if I haven't played on them that much.

C'mon, we all do... We just try to ignore them. *:)*
: Glad to hear man :D welcome to NA
Yeah, I've heard it's the beginning of LoL when you reach lvl 30. xD Have fun in your games!

: That was a one long journey to get lvl 30. Mine took like 8 months, but man, did that already felt like eternity. Enjoy rankeds.
I dunno if I'm ready to *enjoy* ranked.... GLHF in your games too :)

: What if there was more blocking the nexus than two towers?
Oh my god, this should happen. The nexus doesn't even need to be invulnerable when the golem is alive. He should have an AoE effect and be so strong that the team would die even before they touch the nexus unless they get rid of it. For split pushing, you could make it so the less enemies there are around the golem, the less magic resist/armor he gets so that split pushers could get rid of them, since... uh riot wants to encourage split pushing. pls rito
: First of all, thank you for the transparency! Very much appreciated. I like this trend. :) Now, for the question: Is there any possibility of allowing us to be able to "Fill except X"? With the current UI this could be accomplished by choosing Fill as primary, then the words "EXCEPT FOR" show above the secondary slot, where we select which role we don't want to fill. And if someone wants to queue for every position, just replace the secondary role's "Fill" with...whatever phrasing would work best. "None" could work, but that might be confusing. Just a suggestion. This is just a theory, of which I have no data to back up, but this could possibly result in lower queue times. There are many people who hate a given role, and are scared of choosing Fill because of the fear of getting that role. Nobody wants to be in that position of having to choose between performing poorly or dodging because they were unlucky. This would effectively let people in this situation queue up for four roles now instead of only two, which would lower queue times for everybody, no?
I need this. I can fill except for jg. :/
: The Future of New Champ Select
This is kind of related but also unrelated to the new champ select; but could you take into consideration re-ordering rune pages and masteries by click and dragging?
