: Can people not compare Riot to EA everytime they don't give shit for free?
Well, one's an evil, greedy corporation bent on enslaving the masses with content locked behind paywalls through progression and make everything broken for months on end even though veterans are crying foul. Then there's EA. ######Joking, I really think Riot's okay

I don't care if I leave bronze because, whats after that? silver and then gold? I doubt I'd ever get higher than that. I play LoL because i enjoy winning, but ironically, in bronze ranked, it feels like I have even less power over whether or not my team wins.

Is there going to be a soft or hard(er) reset for the next system since there's the new runes and stuff? I mean, it doesn't matter to me either way since I'll just end up B5 once again... Anyway, what I mean is that everyone's going to be adjusting to the new changes and I think some adjustments might be necessary since there was kind of a "standard" for the last however many years and it's an overhaul to how the game used to be with just getting the right setup of numbers.
: I'm gonna be taking a break from league.
Be like me, don't play and annoy the ever-living out of people referencing other games.

: Over the last year i forgot.
If you nerf Gnar and Rumble, Shen will rule. Annnnytime the game is "balanced," Shen is a MUST PICK OR BAN. Why? Oh I don't know, taunt, tank, deflects autos, big ass shield on top of all the other heals and shields. I'd rather have a game with them than to have a snorefest 35 minutes before Shen TPs in and wins a teamfight.
: So this game is dead now?
A game is not dead until the doors are shut. One person leaving is not going to kill a game and there will always be fresh blood. Want to see a dead game? http://massivelyop.com/2017/11/16/ncsoft-is-already-sunsetting-moba-master-x-master/ A grindfest and a half, League is not as bad as this was and it's a shame cause I loved this game.
: Higher ranked players are more intelligent than lower ranked players [SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN]
All I see are a bunch of fancy terms and repeating "skill and intelligence." Where are the terms I can barely understand from Chemistry and Biology?
: For all you 1 tricks, what makes you spark with your champion?
Let's see, when I was 1 tricking Lux it was because I enjoyed the few moments I threw a shield out to save a teammate as well as her attacks were Light which was really cool given all the guns and gore and magic missiles that were common tropes at the time. As to 1 tricking Ahri, I thought she was a high skill champion...okay I wasn't the brightest but then again I have a higher skill barrier than most others.

: Good gravy adc mains are the worst people i know. (Not satire??)
I've had my fair share of bad varus players / main who call you out on every skillshot you miss while simultaneously thinking they're front line. I'm just praying that adc bot with support becomes non-meta so that I can go to another lane to support (maybe mid? maybe have an apc instead...)

: You are now meddler...
You no longer gain vision from teammates (except wards)
Engelin (NA)
: I've seen a couple people say something along the lines of "why would anyone other than support ward
: Build sightstone first.
The only time I will ever rush a sightstone is if we're being ganked a lot or we're constantly pushing. Otherwise getting the first item is far more beneficial than vision which 9 times out of 10 is worthless when you're busy 2v1'ing the enemy under tower and I'm pinging you back. Yes it's good to have but it's not a game changing stat if nobody really uses it. I get more value out of a red these days.

What happened to the 1v1 mode that was planned? As much as I like using Howling Abyss for them, I would like something like that to help a friend who's trying to learn but doesn't really understand mechanics. Actually, a Mentor Mode where it either locks you to your opponent's level or you can set up things for them wouldn't be too bad of an idea. I don't play as much but would like to teach others how to play or at the very least show them basics.

: Yasuo is actually the worst thing to ever happen to this game
Tsumirez (EUNE)
: Infinite bronze division
I got out multiple times, git gud. But really yes it's hard yet you can do it. The advice I can really give is that you really need to just ignore what everyone else is doing wrong and what you can do to win. Rotate, take farm, weigh objectives, even tilt the enemy if you have to (I'll play dirty, I don't care) and generally just try to manage everything. Let's just take Support for example as that was my main role and the HARDEST to climb out. Did I build full AP Lux or go AD Lee Sin? Heeeeellll no to either. Though I did build some AP on Lux mostly because I like not dying so build 1 defensive item. Anyway, you are relying on four other people to win. Now, I don't trust my mid after having the past few go 0-4 against an "Easy Yasuo" lane so I do one thing, make absolutely sure that my lane partner stays alive. If I roam, I am watching them carefully, I will drop wards everywhere, I will ping when I back and I will ping when I leave and unless they are just completely unable to stay under tower for me to back, I will babysit them until that tower is down. If they don't perform up to my standards, I just make sure they don't die and stay calm. My next task is be with my team at all times and lock down the needed targets. Ping the one they need to focus and even if what they do is a stupid idea, always commit with them. Assess all situations, learn what **you** have to do to win. Don't worry about what everyone else is doing, just concentrate on you. Yes your jungle might feed, yes your ADC might flame if you take an accidental minion, but unless they're ACTIVELY trying to screw you over, work with them and not against. They want to climb as much as you do, being salty and toxic about it is not going to help anyone.

: Oh yeah? Like last season after last preseason? Last season was total dog shit, because they can't get their shit together ever.
Except this season they REWORKED AN ENTIRE GAME SYSTEM and HAVE NO FRAME OF REFERENCE OTHER THAN EVERYONE BITCHING. If you're so bothered by every season being bad, why continue playing? Seriously just gtfo and do something else or have an aneurysm over a stupid video game. Change is needed to keep things fresh, I really doubt anyone wants to play a game that hasn't updated in almost a decade (but then again, OSRS is still popular) Anyway, point remains: this is a time of experimentation in which they need valuable input from the MAJORITY of players, not the MINORITY of pros. They want to appeal to a wider audience and unfortunately if you're under 20, you lack any sort of attention span to sit down for a long game and want to find a faster opportunity for rewards. I mean, at least this game still isn't pay to win like some new titles I could mention which is not something I'm about to discuss in detail because there is such a fine line of what's Pay 2 win that every game eventually can be defined as one. League is trying to compete with OW and PUBG as well as people like me who are nowhere in the young brackets that want to be number 1 even if it costs $4000. The demographic they're targeting is not for me which is fair, if a business wants to survive it has to adapt even if it costs some people. Riot has done a fine job and I will stand by that comment. Granted they have done things I don't approve of like changing Veigar's Ult and making another Ahri skin which I don't like, from them posting gameplay updates and interacting with their community, they've done more to at least try and fix things for the better of the dedicated rather than going for our pockets. Let me tell you this, if they are as greedy as everyone says, why is there no Pool Party Ahri? I guarantee you every 16 year old boy would buy that skin in a heartbeat.
: Ezrea, 22% pick rate, 56% win rate.
It is. The Preaseason. Everything is Broken. Winrates right now mean jack shit until the dust settles.
: RWBY is still not an enjoyable show.
Not sure if I'm in it for the same reason as others, but I put it off for the longest time because when he joined RT, I thought "well, I don't want to join in the bandwagon" which has been kind of my stance on things. Eventually got around to it and pretty much went into it looking at what the fighting choreography was like as it was the biggest draw for me. I found him long before he was picked up because of another series he did called Dead Fantasy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIy5Q3EB6ec At the time, I didn't see anything else like it and was impressed. There's something satisfying about watching just straight up beating-the-crap out of each other that wanted me to see more. Sadly it ended at 5 with 6 in the works. Got around to watching it, I think it's fine and starting to slow down a bit, yet it's 5 years so it's bound to happen with any long-planned series. Haven't watch much of Volume 5 yet to know if I still like it or not.

Because they have an ego comparable to that of Call of Duty players only because the game is the top of the industry for eSports. Only one worse that I've seen is the Super Smash Bros. Community which I heard is frothing at the mouth mad. Then again, people want to complain because they think it gives them power and whine when things don't go the way they want to. Maybe they just want to find something to complain about for the sake of complaining.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: November 10
Are there any plans at all to buffing towers at all since there's now a rune that pretty much gives you a free herald on your team? I know they were changed to discourage lane swaps but honestly apart from LCS that was never really a problem that I remember. Ever since the change, I hate being bot lane because 1 in 3 games would be a 4 man dive that results in an instant tower loss. Hell, just one kill or one back is sometimes enough to lose the thing. So far, the I adore the runes because I can feel the skill expression from each person. There was never really a time I felt "well, you have 2 teams just throwing out abilities in the hopes of killing the other person" while now I move around during a fight a bit more since there's more room to breathe and kite. Also BRING BACK HIGH LEVEL SPECTATES! Or maybe a random player spectate, I enjoyed watching those for the sake of enjoying it. Actually, I like Bronze games more cause a lot of interesting things happen compared to high elo's "Red Coat Formation."
