: No, you should have the freedom to communicate however you want to, as long as it's within the rules. You'd want the same if you had to play on a different region's server.

He didnt say "punish these players for having the audacity to type in another language". He made a remark that it's hard to have solid communication when half your team doesnt speak the primary language of the server.

: Interesting, Teemo neither seems to be played nor hated to the extent he use to.
It's because his kit is pretty garbage. 90% of new champions have ways to either fight him or farm in a lane with him that a lot of the old champions didn't have back when he was hated.

You have to buy bundles to get a LOT of the event cosmetics, not just the wukong emote. This isn't some vendetta they have against wukong in particular. Calm down
: but that's no excuse to put low LP bronze 4s with people in silver promos. i understand the mmr ratings, and i feel there's no excuse or reason riot cant have a forced bracket for people in promos. no duos and nobody a tier lower or a tier higher; therefore actually placing you in a rough skill level with people that are for the most part the same.

But that's what he's saying. Just because you're playing with/against only other silver players doesn't mean they are "for the most part the same". There could be a wider skill range in a game featuring only players from silver 4 than in a game with 2 bronze, 2 gold and 1 plat player. It depends on the mmr and how well they've been playing. Rank isn't the be all, end all of skill determination (unless you're bronze 5, at which point I've got nothing for you).

That's a straight up buff. I am aware that Voli desperately needs a pick-me-up, but that's more than a purely QoL change. Quality of Life changes are things to make the champion smoother or easier to use without directly increasing their power. Ryze E bouncing if the target dies before it reaches them and triggering empowered W and Q when snapcast are things that make him more usable, and hell, even let him combo faster, but are still considered QoL changes. Volibear getting caught by the game's pathing routines because of random minion movements is something that drastically inhibits a juggernaut that doesn't have the instant waveclear of {{champion:86}} or the ranged pull of {{champion:122}}. Especially since the speed from Q disappears once he tosses his target, this would just make that aspect of the move smoother.
Getting rid of unit collision in ANY scenario is a flat buff. That is not quality of life. I agree with you that UC fucks over juggernauts a lot, but don't try to make it seem like it isn't a buff.
: As long as Volibear changes are being looked at, how about a QoL change?
That's not a QoL change. That's a straight up buff. I am aware that Voli desperately needs a pick-me-up, but that's more than a purely QoL change.
Rioter Comments
: pls give me some tips to improve my gameplay
I don't have time to look at you op.gg too much right now, but a couple quick things I noticed: Swap to the red trinket on support after you finish the warding item. Practice cs'ing. There's a few games I see where you barely have 100-125 cs at 30 minutes. Buy more control wards. I see a lot of 30+ minute games where you will either buy 0 control wards, or 1 on your first back and then never again. The vision/vision denial they provide is priceless. If you need advice on how/where to ward, you can watch a couple lcs games and just focus on where they have their vision. That's all the time I've got to look through it, sorry.
: Why does it always take me like 50-75 games to get out of silver but
My opinion is that it's because Silver is the default rank that people playing their first season of ranked get placed at. My first season I got placed in silver 2, when I was definitely only deserving of bronze 1 at BEST.
: Is it just me, or is the amount of decent ADC players dwindling?
I'm by no means a great adc player, but I'll be damned if I'm gonna feed if I get autofilled there.
: Maybe I'm Wrong - A Complaint About Junglers
I must be the extremely rare jungler who not only willingly camps top if it's available, but camps the shit out of bad matchups for my top laner (just look at my most recent lee sin game for example).
: also you may notice that an items benefit is negligible and you an adjust your build
Definitely. If you see you're not actually getting much use out of your {{item:3071}} on Orianna, maybe swap it out for a {{item:3285}} next game.

In fact, it's probably been your albatross. > > I get being frustrated with your team, but it's virtually never worth venting about in-game. I mean, what value does saying "your decision making is poor" really carry, beyond personal satisfaction? If somebody is a grade-A moron, laugh about it with your friends later, or make a funny post about it on the boards. But antagonizing folks in game is part of the reason your honor level dropped in the first place, and will likely sabotage your efforts to repair it. I don't actually even do that often, just in situations where its a complete blowout and (as always) the team refuses to surrender. At that point I know it meaningless but its good for my sanity and it helps me not to take my frustration into the next game.
I don't remember the particular thread it was in, as it was a few weeks or so ago that I saw the tread, but I specifically remember seeing a rioter (Tantram I believe) saying that being consistently positive, helpful, and friendly in chat is what triggered low honor accounts to actual be able to climb again, while neutral would neither help nor hurt, and negative chat (as well as any punishments) would keep you low, and block any honor gain. I'm sorry, I don't have the exact link for the quote since I didn't save it from however long ago it was. On a more direct note, I get really frustrated with teams who refuse to surrender long-gone games, or teammates who always try to 1v9 their way to their 0/10/2 powerspikes, but the way I keep most of the aggression out of chat is to just vent to my friends in discord, or type everything I want to say but delete the messages without actually sending them. If you get these kinds of games, going out of your way to try to suggest helpful things to the teammates even when they're doing poorly, or straight up int'ing, would go a reasonable distance towards helping you regain honor levels. Even if the messages themselves don't change the teammates behavior, it still shows you're going out of your way to remain calm and friendly (at least outwardly).

Why is Viktor a viable instant-waveclear champ when Zoe will never be? See? Comparing champs with totally different playstyles, abilities, and mechanics doesn't work too great.
: Forever Honor Level 1
Riot has said that you will not gain honor levels simply by being neutral in chat, rather that you must actively show good sportsmanship and positivity with consistency.

: I don't need this to know how to build my champion.
I personally don't view it as trying to tell people how to build their champions, but rather it being cool/interesting to see a measurable statistic about what the items are doing for you. Similar to when you hover over the runes in-game.

: Idk. Could be anything
: I know ill prolly get down voted for saying this but... QSS is a big answer that hardly any lower elo, and actually alot of higher elo don't seem to buy against zoe. Moonfall Saber Iv'e noticed in some of your last few games against zoe, neither your mid or adc got QSS. This can be a hugely effective item against zoe and I would highly recommend for you to explain this to your team mates.
Yes...qss totally has the same 8s CD that the bubble has.

She jumps around more than Kata. It's a justified nerf. She's kinda UP right now tho... and more than Kata? Tons of champs jump more than Kat, she has 1 dash and she can only get 5 if people are throwing themselves into death. Permamobility is a toxic design but not much more than a permaslow. I think from a design point it makes sense, it puts her in a similar range to Sivir and makes her have to be smart with her Q and R to be played effectively. But without compensation it means her early game is stupidly weak and her transition isn't great either. Maybe I missed LCS/LCK and shes popular in proplay again but her winrate in high elo solo q is like 47%. Even if she's good in proplay again she's not that much better to need her range gutted with no compensation. If they aren't going to buff her now she's going to drop and end up getting changed later.

She's actually a highly contested pick in professional play over the first couple weeks, so this may be a nerf designed to keep her closer to average in pro play. The issue is that the last time they made her average or slightly below average in pro play, she became utter trash for soloq.

: Spell shields are kinda buggy. Abilities like amumu bandage toss won't stun if spellshielded but he does get to jump to your location.
That's not a bug, that's intentional. The spellshield blocked every aspect of bandage toss that effects the target. It doesn't stop aspects that effect the caster.
: Is an azir a good champ to learn and is he easier after his rework?
He's very good, but he is still very hard to play him well.
Rude Name (OCE)
: Stop making bloody mid laners
There is no such thing as a "teamfight assassin". But I agree with the sentiment of the post.
: Which.. is bad, you see that right? That plays into why people are "trapped" in honor zero/one. Everyone should be getting reported frequently. I've been told multiple times on forums that any report reduces the chances of increasing honor level. But everyone gets reported. Making it play into keeping you at whatever honor level is just annoying.
Reports on their own don't actually do anything. They just trigger either the system, or a Rioter to look into it and see if anything seems worthy of a punishment. Nothing worthy of a punishment = no punishment doled. You could be x9'd every game, but if nothing you did was deserving of a punishment, you could still gain honor (albeit slowly, since getting honored after games speeds up the honor leveling).
: Rengar or kha'zix
Rengar if you wanna jumpscare squishies, kha if you wanna play more stealthy with your oneshots.
: Still honor zero here. And don't give me that "maybe you're getting reported" bs, that'll happen to anyone no matter what honor level they're at.
It doesn't matter if it'll happen no matter what honor you're at. It only matters if you get reported.

It is literally the ONLY item teams need from supports. Almost no one is gonna care if you go full tank sona or whatever the hell you want, as long as you are providing the vision from sightstone. If you want to play support, but don't want to buy SS, expect to get angry teammates.

Damaging a champion gives you the extra attack speed for 3s, and auto attacking them after getting the buff will extend that AS buff duration to 6s.

: How can having access to spells every 30 sec that every other champ has access to every 3-6 min be balanced? You literally just said it has " a lot of hidden power" you don't think that's bad design?
Name one summoner spell or item active that has a 6 minute cool down. I'll wait.
: proof that zoey is busted as fudge
If you want literally anyone to ever believe even a fraction of claims like this, you need to provide video proof. Otherwise I will assume you are exaggerating/lying because you're tilted from losing a game to a character you don't understand how to play against.

: Is fairly constantly like 90% of the time? Or like 50%? This bug is a bit weird, we put in some fixes for 7.23 that seem to work for most people. But it looks like select players are still getting the bug pretty consistently - we're trying to figure out what's different for these players so we can target a fix for them. :c
Well I usually finish editing my runes before the last person locks in, but whenever I don't it seems to be well above half the time that the rune page will reset to what was saved on the page prior to champ select beginning. Another rune page bug I've had since preseason started (that happens far less frequently) is sometimes when I'm changing runes in champ select it will alter more pages than just the one I'm working on. For example I'll be working on making a Lee Sin page, and it will simultaneously change my Top Tank page to the identical runes as the Lee page. I can't seem to figure out what specifically triggers this, but it's rather obnoxious. Sorry to add another bug to this list when you were originally talking about a separate one.
Sparkle (NA)
: I posted this on another topic, but yeah we're investigating one this atm. We checked in some changes for 7.23 that reduced the frequency that this bug occurs but it looks like it didn't solve the problem in all cases. Sorry about this bug, I know it's annoying. If you don't mind me asking some follow up Qs - is this happening for you all the time? Also are you playing on a Mac or a PC?
I play on a PC and this happens to me fairly consistently.

Hashinshin actually isn't that toxic anymore. He'll make some exaggerated statements on stream or in all chat about how balanced or unbalanced he thinks champions/abilities are, but he doesn't really actively flame people in chat.
