: Match making attempts to force us to ~50% winrate, riot justifies champ balance by winrate....
I miss when there was the option in ranked to actually pick a role or search for a specific role so you actually got people on your team that wanted to play said role. None of this autofilled so I afk bullshit. Even if queues took longer, you actually got better teams because people were in the role they were good at.

: If You Are Wondering Why High Elo Players Smurf instead of Their Mains. Here is Your Answer
If you're smurfing, you'll eventually get back to high elo, unless you purposefully lose to stay in low elo so you can smurf, in which case there's a problem there.

Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: August 2
Meddler what are your thoughts on Yuumi considering the following information: Yuumi is currently the most banned champion in all of pro play, below are the totals combined from all regions: 958 bans (1st) 440 picks (4th) 53% win rate (14th) 6.2 KDA (3rd)
: 46% winrate and people are whining about her. My head hurts.

Solo q win rates for this champion are misleading as low elo afk noodle eaters are included in those numbers. In the hands of actual good players: She currently is the most banned champion in LCS summer split with 74 bans. She's been played 18 times for a record of 13-5 putting her at a 72.2% win rate, making her one of the most successful supports when played. In contrast Lux support has a 69.2% win rate this split has been played 7 more times, been banned 10 times and has only won 5 more games than Yuumi (due to more frequent use). Going deeper into stats: Yuumi is currently the most banned champion in all of pro play, below are the totals combined from all regions: 958 bans (1st) 440 picks (4th) 53% win rate (14th) 6.2 KDA (3rd)
Reksee (NA)
: I used to defend Yuumi when people said her gameplay was toxic...
I've also had a lot of Yuumi players that if you die once in lane, they get super op mad like, mental health awareness month mad, and rage and flame. I think people just expect to afk on her and win. Her win rate is brought down by all the people eating their noodles while they afk in lower elos. In higher elos and pro play she is close to 100% pick ban.
Reksee (NA)
: I used to defend Yuumi when people said her gameplay was toxic...
There's a reason she's 100% pick/ban in pro play (in NA). Yuumi is currently the most banned champion in summer split with 74 bans (79.6% ban rate). Irelia is next with 62 bans. She's been played 18 times for a record of 13-5 putting her at a 72.2% win rate.

Regardless of whether you played those modes until they ended or not, League is a global game and as such is affected by global numbers and cost of resources involved in maintaining those modes.

Even some of my friends had to restart their comps too.
: Why are you buffing Lux support exactly???
What if, by "buff Lux support" they actually mean "nerf mid lane Lux". I'd be ok with her doing WAY less damage and just being a shield bot.

Sëtíer (NA)
: Talk About "Elemental Class" Golem
Yeah I was destroying everyone and it came down to me and the last dude and he had less than 10 hp and I had at least 25-30. Last three fights he summons the fucking golem and my ENTIRE TEAM including assassins jump on this fucking thing that doesn't take any damage and he just wipes me after I handily led that whole game. There was no strategy in his play outside of "let me get this golem". It's fucking bullshit and needs to be nerfed hard. It's got WAY too much HP. 5 Brawlers (lvl 3 and lvl 2) 2 assasins (lvl 2 and lvl 3), and this thing takes no damage, it's health barely disappears... it just doesn't feel like the person actually did anything to be rewarded with an instant win card. Not to mention it just draws aggro from your whole team, i even tried different arrangements. His team was full of lvl 2's and 1's, he had no lvl 3 champions. This is the only thing in this game that I find absolutely busted beyond belief, and it's a lot easier to get than people think.
: Is this true?is just fake? #Permalifted
My main account (this one) was permabanned about a month ago. I submitted a support ticket and after several interactions and dialogs with a Rioter, my permaban was reduced to a two week. I can't say this would be the case for everyone, and having max honor 5 the previous season helped my case I'm sure. I only went through the official Riot support ticket website as another comment stated, they are the only ones that can help you, if you are willing to help yourself.
: Yea sorry i enjoyed the post and i honestly feel bad for you but riot's ban hammer is fucking ridiculous and there is no chance of you getting your account back. when my brothers account got banned all that i learned was: flaming randoms is ok in riots books but the moment you flame your 5 man premade they hit you with the ban hammer... don't even know how to much a hate riots ban philosophy.

I just wanted to follow up here: So, that support ticket I submitted was actually the best thing I could have done. I didn't have a history of initiating negative chat, and the situation that landed me there was in response to others already doing so in the game. While this doesn't make it right, the Rioter was able to recognize this. So after a few lengthy emails and conversations, the penalty was reduced with a stipulation, one more strike, I'm out for good (but I won't let that happen). Oh I was also Honor level 5 last season and got all my ranked rewards so I mean, I really didn't have a history of being toxic.
: "I Was Unfairly Banned"
From personal experience, a lot of times my comments were in response to someone else. That doesn't make it an excuse, but not having a habit of being an instigator can actually possibly help you out if you go through the right avenue (support ticket) and actually engage in a constructive conversation with the supporter. While there are some accounts that do get permabanned, not all stay that way.

To think I haven't done otherwise, or to think I'm trying to beg for my account back, you are highly mistaken. I have already taken those steps without your permission. If you didn't really feel bad when you were flaming folks, chances are the only thing you feel bad about now is being banned. Not any destruction that your outbursts might've caused.

You're right. I didn't feel bad at the time. You're also right that most people feel bad because of the investment they lost not because of the people they hurt. Sometimes it takes a lot to make people (me) realize exactly what their actions were doing. A lot of people also assume that getting banned means you are like that all the time. When really it just takes a few times to go too far, which is a few times too many. And hindsight will always be 20/20. And it did take the loss of an investment for me to actually take a step back and look at myself. And I've always had anger management problems, that's real talk, and involves personal history I'd rather not delve into. So for me, it is a struggle. Having people that want to see you do better feels good. Feels great vs all the people that just assume I'll always be an asshole, because all they know about me is that I went too far in chat sometimes and paid for it.

I think that's your perception of it. If he were unbanned he probably wouldn't flame anymore. The same goes for most everyone who writes an apology for their behavior after being banned. But does that mean that they're not all blatant last-ditch attempts? Of course not. They still are and some of them are pretty dang annoying. But here's the thing, if they started unbanning folks who wrote an apology they'd be opening the floodgates to extra work and an extra chance. Mods/other would have to review a fair bit of these 'appeals' and decide whether or not to accept or reject them. That and the flamers would probably take their extra, last chance for granted. Edit: Ignore this. Your rather mild response triggered him. He'd probably keep flaming if he were given that last chance.

He'd probably keep flaming if he were given that last chance. Concerning your edit: Perhaps I would have, that's why I never stated I wanted my original account back. Yes I did submit a ticket for reasons I will not state, but have since told Riot to ignore that ticket. I have already almost reached honor 3 on a new account that's sub 30 because I HAVE been taking the actions to be a better player. The point of the permaban is to make you realize how toxic you were and make you feel the loss of all the money you spent. It's an investment that you don't see a return on unless you are able to access the account. This is why most people beg for accounts back. I already made a new one and moved on. They didn't permanently ban me the person from the game like they did Tyler1 a couple years ago, so that in and of itself is Riot's way of providing a quote unquote second chance. Any investment I make now, I'll have to protect. And that starts with being a better person. #TriggerProof

: That's where they're wrong though buddy. Like I said, you are your only constant. Continue to improve yourself and you will excel. You've already taken the biggest hurdle in admitting that you were at fault. You can't control other people's action but you can control your own, no matter how hard it may seem. And it will get easier as time goes. Literally the last game I played last night was my plat 3 promos. I was zed lanning against reneketon. I recalled and he shoved in lane and roamed bot and picked up a kill. Bot lane immediately flamed me for "getting out roamed, and having lower cs than him." I wanted to explain what had just happened and why he roamed while I was just getting back to mid. But I bit my tongue so to speak and just focused on catching back up. Luckily bot was able to carry with some additional help from me and jg. I could have flamed them back and that may or may not have tilted them. Well never know, but by not flaming them back I controlled myself and even if we ended up losing that game I know that I did the right thing in not saying anything back to them.

Yeah solo queue really is a reactionary experience. Unless you have telepathy, there's no way to know what another person is thinking. So you almost have to know before you make a play, can I do this on my own and be successful, or will I need help. If the first answer is yes, then go for it, but if not, then I probably shouldn't assume my team knows my plan and shouldn't expect them to know to follow a lead. You really have to just look at everything around you and put yourself in the best position so that way when they answer no to that first question but still follow through, you'll be in a spot to help them. I'm trying man. And I will take your advice to the bank for sure.

If some lone guy is beating up your girlfriend in front of you, I doubt the strongest things are calm and self-control." That was not a question. And in my previous statement I said defending a helpless person does not also mean you are not a pacifist. You can also approach fights that you feel you must fight in a calm and collected manner with self-control, as seen by Robert Downey Jr in the Sherlock Holmes movie. That means just use your brain first. So in a way, I did answer the question you did not ask. Also the post you were referring to was this: "Anyhow, I think the strongest thing is calm, self-control. It'll get you further in life than being impulsive will." That just means don't be a dick, i.e. Don't be the dude beating on people's girlfriends.

The loss of all the money wasted will always hurt more than not being able to use your old summoner name.
: I will say that this is one the first board posts I've made, been playing league on and off since 2011. I was hardstuck gold for the majority of this season and I never understood why I wasn't improving until I actually looked at myself. I would give first blood or a teammate would make a mistake and I would low-key flame them. Nothing along the lines of total toxicity but just enough to where I see that I myself probably tilted my own teammates. A Mia ping when their laner roams and ganks my lane or a "thanks for not following them and letting me get 2v1ed", etc. Stuff like that. I don't know when it happened exactly but I stopped myself. When teammates die I let them know that it's ok. That it's just a death or two. Or I point out that since their Jung ganked bot, ours secured his entire top side jg, or rift herald, or something along those lines. Even if I'm getting flamed for something I simply just don't type anything back. I look at the map, objectives, different things like that and try to figure out what "I" need to do. And since then I've been able to climb up to plat 3. I guess the point I'm trying to say is to move on and worry about yourself. Because you are the only constant in your games. Yeah you will feed every now and then or a teammate will feed every now and then, but just let it go. Continue to move on and continue to improve yourself both in the game and outside. You have a really tough game or get flamed for something you did, take a 5-10 minute break before queing up again. Go smoke a cigarette, get a snack, watch a YouTube video, literally anything to get your mind off of what just happened and I promise it will help you in the long run.

Yeah, I guess it started because I felt like they were right ya know. That all I'll ever be is trash stuck in elo hell with them for all eternity, so I auditioned for the role and excelled at it.

: Permaban
My first 2 week ban was for hate speech. Which was the only time I ever did it, and it was in post game lobby, but after I was like....oh....that wasn't good. A few months later, I called some people dumb, and assholes, and down came the Poppy hammer with the permanent ban. But I did it to myself so all I can do next is be better on my new account. It's a three strikes you're out deal with Riot. First out is chat restriction, which I got about three years ago. The next out is a two week ban, which I got a couple months ago. The third out is a permanent ban, which I just got yesterday. Riot doesn't have any control over the report system. It's all automated and up to the players to report you. With that said, on my new account if someone starts flaming me because I miss a cs and start taking them from me, or don't follow them into the jungle without vision, or can't read their mind, or play too aggressive...or just any flame they send my way in general, If I feel they are just being assholes, I report them, because that's what they did to me. Eventually everyone toxic will be permanently banned, start a new account, maybe learn our lesson, maybe not, maybe get banned again, who knows. The permanent ban is to teach you a lesson. If you want to be toxic, don't spend money on the game, because that's what you really lost when they took it away from you. All the things you paid for that are yours because you paid for them, aren't really yours. When Riot takes that away, it's supposed to hurt. The main reason most people complain about being permanently banned is because that's money they wasted and will never get back. So next go around if you make investments in the game, you gotta protect those investments. I tilt pretty easy so the new account I don't really say much, unless it's to make a joke or ask if the team wants to do something. [EDIT: This isn't entirely true, I have said, "Well I do have a (insert champion name here) for support." so I'm still working on it, but it's not the, "My supports fucking stupid can't do shit wont get lane pressure" you know the lines.] [EDIT: Side note... after marksmen were nerfed into oblivion last year that's when I really became the most toxic I've ever been. Not excusing my behavior just giving insight into my mind. People at low elo have such high expectations for champions that legit cannot win on their own anymore like every other role in the game. I'm not saying you can't carry, but it now takes at LEAST 3 items, maybe 4, as well as a support that you have a telepathic connection with, but a top laner with a phage and corrupting potion can murder a marksman that has 1 full item, most supports can solo kill a marksman, pretty much everything in the game is designed to destroy a marksman, but we were only made for dps. In fact marksmen are so bad right now the only viable options are ones with high range, or massive aoe wave clear, or high spell burst damage, or hard cc or combination thereof. Marksmen that don't get played are left on the bench not becaues they have no escapes, but because they don't have the aforementioned abilities. In all honesty most mages can destroy marksmen bot now but people are afraid to not have dps on the team. But if there are no tanks being played, you don't need dps, so you can legit run an assassin or mage bot lane and smash if their team consists of no tanky champions be it top or support or jungle. This is why marksmen never went mid, because mages just trash them and marksmen don't have the kits that allow them to match. At low elo, because no one is good, if the slightest snowball happens on any champion the game is over, that's how I feel, opinions, grains of salt and whatnot.] The thing is, everyone that plays this game thinks they know everything about everything about the game, so if you mess up in the slightest it's all your fault for everything. I know this because not only have I experienced this, I have done it myself on occasion, and now, all that time and money invested into my first account is gone. So all I can do with this account now, is share my experience and how I was toxic and what it got me. Some people don't realize that even after they unbanned Tyler1 they didn't give him his original account back, although they did make him a part of the partner program so I guess it didn't matter that he lost all his original content he paid for cause now he gets it all for free. So I guess that doesn't really apply here :/ [EDIT: It actually does apply here because I'm sure if he fucks up again he's gone and he will NEVER get another chance after that (scary). So that's his investment now.] The thing is though as long as you just don't type anything you'll be good [EDIT: As long as you are actually trying to play the game like a smart person, because running it down, going afk, or telling the enemy where your jgl is, can still be and probably will be reported.]. Not saying if you're a normal and calm and upbeat happy go lucky person not to talk, but if you do have toxic tendencies, just don't type. Make your chat window as small as possible. If you just want an audience to agree with your flame, start a twitch channel so you can say it to the viewers and not the players (like Tyler1 does). I did put in a support ticket to Riot, but I kind of already know that there's no way they give back all the things I paid for in the game. That's my punishment. That's the purpose of the permanent ban. To make you go...oh....oooohh....what have I done....why did I do that....oh no....oh............no............

Rioter Comments
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: May 17
While I enjoy the design of Yuumi, I do believe her gameplay is unhealthy for League. Bad Yuumi players will basically just afk making bot lane feel lile a 1 v 2. Good Yuumi players will abuse the fact that she can't be targeted. She also seems to gain the special abilities of champions she's attached to, ie turning invisible with Twitch. Being able to hop on Valor with Quinn. Just all around bullshit that has no real counter play. She can basically infinitely shield her team. Just curious who/how/why anyone at Riot was like, "This will be good for the state of the game!"
Qizo (NA)
: I like the idea but I think it might not be worth with diluting the different ques, plus rotating game mode poro king can kind of fill that, without the bans though.
I don't feel like it would dilute the queue too much. I mean look at summoners rift (1 map) with it's 3 different game modes. Why cannot the bridge (1 map) receive the same treatment (currently only 1 mode). The community is obviously split. There are times when I would love the option to get into a more competitive bridge match with champ selection and bans. There's no reason they can't have several ways to play one map. There are also times when I want the full random experience. The problem with Riot, for better or worse, is that they don't like giving people options. They want people to play the modes they want them to play, so giving people choices doesn't seem to be on their list of priorities. Too many choices can be bad. I think having a blind draft queue for the bridge along side the all random queue would actually be healthy for the game and give people that don't want to play a 40 minute rift match the opportunity to pick their champ in a competitive but much shorter match that IS NOT nexus blitz. People seem to be having trouble separating the mode (aram) from the map, I think Riot suffers from this way of thinking too.
: Riot recently made the best addition ARAM ever got just to remove it mere days later...
Would be interesting to see an alternate ARAM mode that is just AM without the AR. Still keeping the full random mode but having an alternate mode for people that want picks and bans. SR has blind pick and draft pick. Why not something similar for BB also~

To closer resemble her appearance in the comic from Marvel as that is Riot's official lore for Ashe now. Her outfit and appearance could be updated to reflect the image they have presented us with in the comics. She does currently feel like a different person in the game than she does in the book~ But that could just be me that feels that way~ I also feel that they may actually do this sometime after the full story is released as I asked a similar question on an earlier post about a visual update, and a Rioter commented on it then deleted their comment before I had a chance to read it. Could have contained spoilers they weren't ready to drop yet.
