: I'm convinced Riot balance team doesn't have a top lane main
Christ this thread turned volatile. I want to say that ranged champs aren't my ONLY problem with top lane, just a pretty big one. I'll admit I was vague with this post and it's my fault that people are boiling it down to "stop whining over ranged tops, look at all these other strong melee picks." Yes I agree with you! They are intended to go along with why I think top is unbalanced (cough cough Riven). I just didn't expand enough and only specifically mentioned range, which again is my fault. Some of you, on BOTH sides of this thread, need to calm down a bit though.

: It is because of the positional ranked revert. Although your highest rank was taken as your main rank, all of your mmr's for each positional rank was combined. Because your other roles were sitting at a silver, your mmr gets dragged down even if your main position was close to plat

That's incredibly punishing and I can't even fathom how they think that's fair. Did they really expect me to care about more than my main role and attempt to grind every other position to a similar standard? Legit I did my placements and then just ignored every position that wasn't top because, ya know, I'm a fucking top main. So annoying that they introduced a positional system, it failed, and now we're still getting punished from it because of the dumb MMR combining. How can they possibly expect me to want to play ranked when losses are this devastating. Season 9 is fucked.

I don't know what gold you're playing in, but it sure as hell ain't mine. I've noticed pretty much zero different in quality of games from silver.

Nobody can ever convince me that Riven isn't a stupid broken champion. Especially if Spear of Shojin is gonna stay in this game.

There needs to be more of an incentive for autofilled players to try their best.

: So if a character has some interactions, ones that you'll hear MAYBE twice per game depending on team comp, that's "throwing it in your face" or "making the character ONLY about their sexuality", but Xayah and Rakan flirting with each other all game is fine? Ezreal constantly talking about Lux, Zoe constantly talking about Ezreal? Why wasn't there an uproar about any of that on here? Hmmmmm

It feels like the mere existence of LGBT characters is immediately taken as any given company or media "shoving it down our throats." God forbid we get a few lines of Neeko flirting with another girl.

: tank Viktor toplane 9% pick rate 52% win rate
It's a new, innovative pick. Let people learn how to play against it for a while before asking riot to nerf it.

: If the enemy team has 20 kills and my team has 1, then it is time to accept that you lost and move on to the next. you need to be courteous about other peoples time and how much time they have or are willing to put into a game. if the only chance of winning is drawing it out for an hour then there is no reason to continue playing. just move on to the next game.

So I believe a few other people have made this point and I agree. But this isn't the point I'm making in my post. I'm talking about when you lose first blood so a teammate immediately says the game is over. Or if you have one bad fight so a teammate gives up for the rest of the game. I'm not talking about being 20 kills behind, I'm talking about small missteps or rough patches that cause people to just completely give up, even if you still objectively have the gold lead.

Physical (natural) beauty/attractiveness and selfcare/outfits are two different things. Kai'Sa has a good body/pretty face, okay. That doesn't need any reason or explanation. Her living eldritch horror of a suit having a giant cleavage though is illogical in-universe. Some things would be illogical in our world but are logical in Runeterra (Garen's pauldrons would be very hindering to us, but since we see him pulling a massive statue, I guess these pauldrons don't pose a problem to him, it's logical in-universe). Kai'Sa's suit isn't logical in-universe. Ahri's and Eve attires are. Etc etc. Her suit doesn't have breasts - she does. I would put that in the physical (natural) beauty/attractiveness category.

I would put that in the physical (natural) beauty/attractiveness category. I'm pretty sure they meant the suit having a giant window to unnecessarily displaying that cleavage is illogical.

: People are heavily misunderstanding the issue. Honestly, I think people really shouldn't give a shit whether or not she's sexualized. The reason I think people should care that she's sexualized is that so much of her design space was wasted on it. Her character design could have been communicated SO much better. Instead, Riot focused on making her look as much like a normal (but sexy) human as possible. It's not just the V-neck that made her sexualized. It's that and literally everything else about her. I'm pretty sure that Riot knew that they were making an attractive character right from the start. It's impossible to not notice. It's just making her overly sexualized is where Riot thought they fucked up I beg you. Please watch this video. It really gives a great insight on the issue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BK_jhdXINFk http://www.auplod.com/u/lapuoda6bee.png

: I have seen recent cases of people complaining here about being banned for inting and feeding. It is harder to detect those than toxic chat, though. It can often take a judgement call that only a human can currently make, and Riot just can't provide the manpower to manually review that many cases. Riot has definitely been getting better at detecting AFK. You can wander around in the game, fire off abilities, and still be counted as AFK by the system if you don't actually contribute anything.
I'll agree that they're getting better about that kind of thing, but I still stand by my original belief that something more needs to be done about the toxicity of the community because many of the games I've played the past couple days alone have shown that the community has an appalling abundance of toxic, inting, afking players that has ruined my experience lately. I never seemed to have this much of a problem in the past as I have as of late.

That's why we have a reporting system. It's not perfect, but if you report her and describe her actions, it's likely it will be counted against her, possibly leading to punishment. Would you prefer something else? If so, what?
I understand that there is a reporting system and I did report her after the game was finished. However, as you said the system is not perfect, far from it. I guess what I'm really asking for is for some sort of better management of the system perhaps. I don't know if this is just a me problem but I have run across so many people that I wonder how they haven't been banned yet. If something as simple as not liking the way our ADC splits off is enough for a player to intentionally feed and throw the game how has a player like this not been banned yet. I know that's a very bold statement and this could easily be their first offense, but I'm just saying it seems unlikely. Either way I have run across players who have openly admitted they purposefully afk or feed on a somewhat regular basis who have suffered no consequences for their actions.
