hahahahahahahahahahahahah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hahahahahahah
: Am I the only one who thinks this game is getting too complex for new players?
i dont think this game has had many new players for a long while..... it just has more bots and alt accounts.... this is what drives any growth it is seeing...because each bot or alt account counts! as far as unique users go.... at least in NA... it has had consistently one of the worse new player experiences since game launch.... imho
: Why does my honor band not show up on my profile
because riot did away with honor almost as soon as they put it out... its a failed initiative.... they just dont care about it... and so they dont care about fixing any bugs that might come up... also the ribbon was replaced with a V at the top of the portrait... and i dont think it even shows to the enemy... so i dont think they care enough to show it on our profiles
: Riot has already incentivized playing support / fill by giving you shorter wait times.
ya that has rly worked so far hu? supports feel included and wanted in this game... not being talked down to or being told to kys every game... ya... working.......
: Incentivizing players to play "Support" in draft mode
u get adc's to stop bm support or maybe jg to stop bm supports i'll be happy... maybe even just mid stop bm supports... fuck how about just stop bm supports? to make this more concise STOP BM SUPPORTS?
: Ranked updates now live
yaaaa WHO THE FUCK CARES you are normalizing anything at PRO level... what dont you get..... the majority of your player baser is under your balance level... almost everyone plays at gold or below and yet you don't give a shit... way to care about your player base.....
: Honestly... Leona at lvl 1 is probably the most terrifying thing to deal with in bot lane..
leo is prob one of the most terrifying supports period....
: Am I Doing Something Wrong?
this game is terrible if u want polite games... run now and run fast.. it will get much much worse... this game is NOT player friendly in ANY way,, ill say that again... in ANY way..... expect to be trolled, flamed, and degraded... as the normal course of any game...
: I swear the wrong people get permabanned.
this is what got me: > Now usually im a "suck it up buttercup" kinda guy.
: Tune in to our playtester stream on Wednesday from 6 to 8 PM PDT!
here is my question, supposedly the majority of the player base is located in gold and below... why is the game play tested and balanced to plat+?
Bombardox (EUW)
: '' i ban this champ cause he was 20/1 last match ''
: I'm Done!
i would believe u... but man i dont... we have all heard "oh i hate this game i quit" shit before... the honest truth is that the player base is addicted for whatever reasons and we will keep playing more likely than not, even if the players are just trolling to "get back at" some random person they never met. they will keep playing... well... the hardcore grp that post on the boards at least will.... and that will continue to drive "user numbers" because investors are simple and they love numbers the company feeds them.... cuz ya, if ur on the boards ur hardcore man..... u crossed that threshold... welcome to the addiction.... it taste so, so sweet!

Less toxicity is better... But if you're bothered, and the majority of players are gold and below, and toxicity is in the majority (?), then it's time to git gud and climb? And if toxic players want to make new accounts and climb past gold, well, that takes a lot of time and since gold is the majority they probably won't climb anyway?
=^D... or... i have plateaued... as have the majority of players in League of Legends... the majority of the player base is located in gold and below... supposedly because that is where they belong yes? ok i agree, then what do u do about the balancing that is at plat+ at pro level stuff, at things the majority of the player base will never understand... then why should the player base care what riot does, since its not directed at them? idk man, im just free thinking....
iMaB3AST (NA)
: This game and it's players...
look at it like this... riot does not ban or punish the majority of toxic players... we can see this based on the amount of toxicity we all see in game after game... or if you prefer the toxic players just make a new account and are right back in the game at little cost to themselves....then when the temp ban is over they are right back at it with another account to do the same with so, this creates the idea that this behavior is allowed, and since i had to deal with this shit then the next person has to deal with it from me comes into play, and since we dont see many punishments (only what 5% of players are ever punished, and the majority of those never again repeat according to riot...right...right? this game has never been nice, or polite, it never will be, its not trying to be... if it was it would do different things to prevent the "toxicity"... this game is about money, and players bring money.... toxic or not.... they balance to the pros, because LCS brings money... the majority of players are in gold and below.,... we are screwed

: A simple Aatrox buff.
do you even play aatrox??? and if he is buffed wont you worry about not being able to play him because FOTM or bans? im a sona main, and i honestly deep deep inside like her best when she is viewed as under-powered.... i dont have to worry about her being banned, or being played by the other support..... its rly nice when your main is viewed as under-powered.... well.... if you like fun more than wins i guess....
Megafist12 (EUNE)
: But I've still played more games solo than with 2 or 3 ppl. And I prefer going solo, as is the name 'solo preference'{{champion:32}}
while you have played more games solo you are not a solo player.... you are a person who plays solo sometimes and sometimes teams up with others.... also the way they word it makes me think that its the wins when you play solo or in a group that matters over your past 25 games.... so if you lose when you play solo but win when you are grouped it will skew further that way.... imo Solo: Win majority of games as a solo player. Dynamic: Win majority of games with premade teams of varying sizes.
Megafist12 (EUNE)
: Why do I have a dynamic preference?
thats almost a third of your games..... you are not a solo player

Dr Poro (EUW)
: Increase penalty for dodging in ARAM
if you own just a few accts you can dodge aram all day long with the worse penalty being you have to log out and into another account... i agree the dodge needs to be longer but since it wont be any time soon, now u know what to do so you can join em... cuz if you cant beat em.....
: Players, what mains do you respect the most or least?
im sure this is a stupid question but darn it i must ask... why is this in gameplay and not in memes and games, or misc? what does respect for a champion have to do with gameplay....

an Ori killed my sona in .1 sec from a bush while i was trying to ward and i was about full hp the other day.... was not even fed... good times :)
: What I got to do to get a s+ up in here?
do better than almost everyone in your "skill bracket" in a certain amt of time... some people have taken to dropping their mmr so they play against "weaker players" where they have the chance to snowball.... it is the easiest way i have seen state so for of getting s+.... drop ur mmr till you play against people below ur skill level then beat them down... it will add to the horrible game atmosphere, but it does work and many people are doing it
: I am a game developer. I spend 8 hours a day of my _life_ making games. It is hard, challenging work. I have to come in both days this weekend to meet a deadline. That people don't want to pay me for the hard work, and just want everything free is annoying. LoL already has quite a permissive F2P model. Be grateful that you don't have to: 1) Pay to download the game and start playing. 2) Pay for server access. 3) Pay for the endless (and thankless) work that goes into playbalancing. 4) Pay for champs (Free rotation, can buy champs with IP). 5) Pay for runes. 6) Pay for all that work they did to reroute all the traffic with ISPs to lower the ping for everyone. {{champion:51}}
while i agree the op's post was a lil silly... im sry ur argument is as well... im a janitor... i work 12 hours a day of my LIFE cleaning other people's shit... its boring, tedious work, i have to come in weekends and everyday i have a deadline before the people show up.... people pay me a miserable wage that is not enough to live off of from 1 job working 12 hours a day.... be grateful you: 1) have a job you like 2) get paid better than most people 3) are thank more than i ever have been 4) get to work in an environment5) you choose 5) idk some other condescending crap that says your life is so hard and the op dosent matter... grow up, life sux

: I'm genuinely curious, what do you say that? From my own personal observation, Ashe's base skin is very blue focused and centric. For Ekko, while some of his abilities come off at blue, they have a green tint and his weapon also glows green. Again, just genuinely curious to hear some opposing thoughts! ^.^
=^D idk, color issues run in my family maybe its that... i know she is an ice lady and all, blue works but i get this feeling when i play ashe of green, of life and healing,.... when its ekko i feel like parkour tron almost, going a million miles an hour blue streaks and blue explosions...
: [Event Ended!] PROJECT: Holy shit there's a lot going on, let's break this down
it seems like ashe should be green, ekko blue and kat red... idk... maybe just me
: I play ARAMS now almost exclusively and it is rly annoying. idk why they cant just unlock the entire champ pool for everyone and make it fair.
i wouldnt play aram if they do.... i hate a lot of champions in lol... or i guess i could just feed to make the game go faster... or just dodge like peole do... its such a short time limit that having 1 or 3 accounts means u can dodge all day long with no repercussions... but then people already do that dont they... how can u tell in aram if someone is feeding... even bots get away with it because going straight to the enemy is done so often in aram it seems
Dr Poro (EUW)
: While there are many good champions, like sejuani or amumu, they are only good if they have a balanced team comp. You don't need any specific thing in ARAM except for ranged waveclear. Without this, you will get stomped hard in the early game. Another really important thing is poke damage. The funny thing is that these 2 things are usually together on the same champs. Champions who excel at this are OP {{champion:101}} {{champion:99}} {{champion:110}} {{champion:126}} {{champion:3}} {{champion:143}} {{champion:202}} . Then there are a few other champs that are just too good in other stuff: {{champion:12}} with his heals and insane engage, cc and immunity and {{champion:37}} with her insane heals and team auras (she's like Soraka, but more). I wouldn't dare to make a cut off for what is OP and what is not because it's all on a scale. The ones I mentioned are safe to say OP, they're just at the top. Then you have a list of about 30ish champs that are really good. ARAM accounts will have these champs too to diminish the chance of getting free weeks. The bad champs are usually bruisers and tanks that don't have AOE hard CC. There are a ton of these champs, about half the champion pool which makes it so favourable to have an account without any of these (it's not bad to have one bruiser if you have the safe waveclear in your team, but it's REALLY bad to have 3 and your opponent has 4 poke/waveclear champs).
well... i would make an argument that at least 30+ champs are op on aram but u seem to agree with that idea already... so i will say what is an aram acct? i dont own 30 champs on a lot of accounts because of the price of runes and champs... so u could say they were all aram accts... but they are not.... i totally know what you are getting at, but i think the problem lies with riot... or with the aram "random champ generator" if you prefer... not with the champs people play with.... i like support, mid, and top.... most of the champs in those roles i like are longer range magic users.... this would make them good aram champs.... and this is not even considering peoples play styles... tanks dominate aram with the snowball if they dont die early for no reason... use the towers... play safe and boring for a while and u stack resist.... but then... people dont like to do that often in aram, they just want damage, even against 1 type damage comps... u will still not see people build resist.... people dive nonstop in aram.... they play "for fun" which normally means they dive some more....or as a reason for them having 18 deaths.... thats not a comp problem, thats someone not playing the champ well problem, going in 2v5, taking kills and not letting anyone get assist gold.... aram is still a team game and people forget that i think.... now, all that being said, yes... when the enemy team has a great long range poke comp, with tower siege it can be a horrible stomp if you have only melee on your team..... but there is a lot more to aram than just the champions.... and it does not happen as often as all that... its just an easy excuse
Dr Poro (EUW)
: Amount of ARAM accounts keeps growing
sooo, out of curiosity, how many champions do you think are OP in aram... there are a LOT of champions, and i for one would say a ton of champs are op in aram....
: I Cried While Playing League
yup, it rly is the most toxic game i have ever played.... and reporting people all the time actually decreases the value of your report if they do not get punished... and since we know how few people are toxic according to riot, we know that relatively very few people ever get punished.... remember only 5% of lol is toxic or something is what they say.... so the more toxicity bothers you and the more you report it the less effective your reports become tencent (and riot games) has little interest in their current business model of removing toxicity... it would reduce their player base by too much... no matter what they say, their actions say it is not a priority.... this is the way the game is, will be.... there is nothing we can do
Pozezt (NA)
: Well, let's just take one scenario of the many infinite that could occur. The enemy team is heavily AD focused and mostly autoattack based. You're playing Leona. You have overlooked the purchase of a Frozen Heart for some reason. Your top laner is already in the process of building his next core item. And your Jungler wont benefit directly from the mana because it's a Rek'Sai. So, a simple 'Hey Leona, we could really do with a FH, they are mostly AD autoattackers' isn't harmful, it's merely suggestive. Like I say, that's one scenario out of an infinte number. Sure, it can come across rude if it's not put across politely or if it's said as a direct instruction. But if it's said politely and suggestively, then there's no harm done.
you are totally right, and if i was that leo i would appreciate being reminded in such a polite way.... however i have never been "asked" polity to build something by and large... and what about the flip side of that coin? what if they suggest something silly and i dont know better so i build it.... what if a lot of people want something.... what if mid was destroyed by a lux and mid wants me to build {{item:3222}} bot has no kills yet but rly nice farm bot wants me to build {{item:3050}} top is going against a autoattacking freak and wants that {{item:3110}} well i need my gold item.... and a sightstone.... boots would be nice hummm.... am i playing the game, or is my team telling me how to play.... by when do you think i have the gold for everything... why do people not act the same way with any other role? its the support who people feel they get to tell how to play, what champ to play, and what to build im not meaning to sound confrontational, i agree with what you are saying.... i would prefer though to be left alone since i do not encounter polite people often in this game and a suggestion more often than not comes out as a dictation
Pozezt (NA)
: 1. If the top and jungler had pick priority and they have both picked non-tanks, be a team player and pick a tank. If you the top/jungler is picking after you, they should do the same. 2. If you don't have a key item that the team needs they we have every right to suggest you get that item. Same as you have the right to suggest items to us if we over look something. 3. Agreed. You're a support from the team, not the ADC's bodyguard. 4. Pretty much. Had to nitpick at 1 and 2 slightly :P
not knocking your comment, im just curious who gets to decide on #2 though.... what is a "key item", wont it depend... do we talk about our ranks, throw down our epeens? while im sure many suggestions are trying to be helpful when people tell others to build something or some way or even pick a certain champ, most times in a text environment, this one in lol in particular, it comes across really rude yes, we can all suggest things, the op posted this though because it does not often come across as nice when people do... and if the support dares to not build that item, the next thing to be heard is how the support is losing the game for the team
: I main support, and...
may u add, something about wards.... maybe about helping to protect pinks that cost 75g from enemies freely killing them or about how saying we have no sight where u died when i have 3 wards out and a pink is not helpful
: If they agree, it's not an argument is it.
: His topic is about smurfs, and I said something related to smurfs. It was relevant. He's talking about how it's unfair and how it's so hard for silvers to climb with plat smurfs, but because It's almost as likely that one will be on your team, it should all even out in the end anyway. Maybe one game will feel terrible because they got the smurf. Maybe the next will be a stompfest because your team did. It doesn't actually have a huge impact because they're going to land on both sides eventually. Yes, I understand what he wants: no smurfs. I also want that, but I'm saying that you just have to push through it to climb, because there's ALWAYS going to be people smurfing for some reason or other. Another thing, he doesn't say the term, "winning games," but the word "climb" means gain LP and get to the next tier, which would require him to win games. I'm not trying to say smurfing is good or a decent thing to do, but I AM saying that it's rare and doesn't affect your climb as much as you'd think. 9 times out of 10, that "smurf" is someone just boosting their own self esteem because they had a good team. It's the silent playmaker that doesn't even bother with chat all game that's usually a higher elo. Also, in response to his post about some of them being plainly better, That is because silver has new level 30 players mixed in with veteran players who got placed very low and are climbing their way back up. This means the skill difference between players in silver, especially silver IV and V, is ridiculous.
ok, sure man ur right im wrong, i apologize, profusely.... i hope u have a great day
: A comment about smurfs posted as a reply to a post about smurfs. seems pretty relevant to me.
op says topic is about people bragging about carrying in lower elo than their ability ... asks "why this shit is allowed" "how's an honest silver like me supposed to climb when there's plat+ smurfs in my elo," u say if u are good enough u will climb... he knows that... in a normal system that riot says is there... but he is saying that they system is being broken, that it is not fair... that plats are playing in his bracket of silver... and hes not wrong.... u say u are as likely to get a smurf on his own team to win the game... he never mentions winning games... he just wants to play with same ranked people... not smurfs... not plats on his team or the enemy team... but the same ranked players as he is playing against... weird concept hu?
