: My Account got hacked and i Got Perma'd
All you can do is wait for a Rioter to respond to your support ticket. Best of luck.
: Also wtf is League+
Pretty sure that's their mobile app that allows you to access the friends list to message people.
: Cannot report someone for verbal abuse from support if u report them for anything else first.
If you reported her in game for the bug exploit, send a support ticket.
: Flaws with the system as I see them (I may be missing things)
Look, as much as we all hate hate speech, there is physically no way to make it possible to make a filter that will filter them out and make it impossible to be used. Let me make you an example. Cigarette. C1garette. C1g4rette. Cig4rette. C1g4re77e. C1g4r3tt3. Cigar3tt3. Cigar3773. That's just 7 ways to avoid the filter right there, and that's not including characters from other languages or characters with accents. While other games may make it look "easy", it's not. Because if the filter doesn't catch it, then every time someone finds a way around it, they have to add it to the filter. And by then they could've already ruined multiple games for people.
: neither? why cant a nice guy be a good player?
Because people believe those players don't exist.
: They told me they wouldnt, so I have personal experience that they wont.
And I've seen people COME TO THE BOARDS saying they got hacked and the hacker got the account perma banned, then them update that Riot removed the ban, with them playing games afterwards. If you got told no, then you were hacking and that's your own fault. Don't tell people lies all because you refuse to admit you got caught.

: Riot should increase ARAM dodge time
Just gonna copy paste this... Look, I hate dodging as much as the next person when my team has a really good comp, but let me give you a few reasons why some people dodge on either team: * They can't play that champ nor the champs they reroll into. At all. Doing so just results in them feeding. No one wants to trade and no one rerolled anything they're decent at. --Do you really want someone who can't play Azir at all on your team? I really don't. Not everyone is faker, we can't play every single champ. * The entire team comp is terrible, no one rerolled anything good/helpful. --A full team of mages/tanks/adcs/melees doesn't always work out. Often times it ends badly, especially for a team of adcs or mages if you can't end the game quick enough. * People are being toxic --Not everyone wants to sit through a game of people being toxic to report them. I'd rather screenshot it, then dodge instead of risking to deal with that for the next 10-30 minutes. * Something in real life came up. --I know, we're on the internet playing a multiplayer game. How can we have any kind of life?! Some people do. Or they have no life but they have a pet. Or maybe something happened in the family that requires there presence. Sure, some people dodge just because they don't like the champ they got. But that doesn't mean everyone does, and honestly even if they did it doesn't warrant an hour wait time. Especially not for one dodge. I've had many times I dodged to avoid a bad a team comp, or because I got Draven and both my rolls were terrible and no one wanted to trade. Heck, I even had a time my sisters rabbit chewed the power cord to my modem. Do either of those situations really deserve an HOUR wait time? Especially for a first offense? Look, you may think 15 minutes isn't that long, but that time DOES rack up. i got up to I believe 45 minutes one day because I kept getting Draven. That was, if I remember right, just 3 dodges. Nearly an hour wait for just 3 dodges. Would I really need to suffer a 3 hour timer just because of rng giving me Draven?
: Happened to me in 2016 as well, rito doesn't care sadly. Rito doesnt undo bans, no matter the reason.{{sticker:zombie-nunu-bummed}}
If they did get hacked, there's actually a big chance Riot WILL revert the ban. Riot's done it before.
: how can i rep 'trolls" if there is no even such a category ?? Negative behaviour jsut means bad talks and so on. So IF You dont want to improve play normals and dont make the people who want to clime the ladder lose lp. its easy
Trolling doesn't mean unskilled. If someone is trolling, you report them for griefing, which is Negative Attitude. If they're unskilled, you HELP THEM get better. Not scream at them and demand they be reported and banned. I'm going to assume now that you're either a smurf who's main got banned for being toxic and can't seem to wrap your head around the fact not everyone around level 58 knows every champion like Faker, or some new player who can't wrap their head around the fact _you're only level 58 people are still learning champions_. As such I will no longer be responding.
: Because you can't punish someone for thinking your call is fucking stupid (and no, your call is not as good as you think it is), or for just being bad at the game.

And because if we start punishing everyone for a bad play, this game wouldn't exist.
: i am not talking about the flaming i am talking about bad\troll\unskilled\ ignoring players ruining the games and still unpunished
If they're bad/unskilled, they don't need to be punished. Why would they need to be punished? HELP THEM learn instead of demanding they be banned because they're not Challenger 1, Korean pro players. Not everyone is going to be a pro at this game, especially not at your level. You're only level 58, assuming you're not a smurf account, most if not all of the people you're with/against are going to be new players who are still learning champions and roles. If they're tolling, REPORT THEM. Funfact, there is a report option for that! Use it. It works. It works a lot better then a report option that would do literally nothing if it existed. If they're ignoring the team, REPORT THEM. There's a report option for that, too! Use it. It works. It works a lot better than a report option that would do literally nothing if it existed.
: How about adding(getting back) a new (old) report categories ?
The unskilled report did.... literally nothing. It was just an option there for people like you to feel better about yourself when someone didn't do what you wanted them to do. Instead of getting mad at them and cursing them out, CALMLY say what could help. Such as, "hey, maybe try to farm under tower." or, "try building some mr/armor." or, "this item works better for/against that champ." Or maybe even, if you know how the champion works and you understand the match up, "try doing x instead of y. and when he does a, try doing c." You'd be surprised how well a player can play when helped and not screamed at. A lot, if not all, unskilled players are willing to LEARN. They can't learn if you scream at them. If they're trolling, just mute them if they're being toxic in chat, ignore them best you can, and report them after the game for trolling or being toxic. If they're not gonna listen, just ignore them.
: No, you're fine. Post the logs for us to see. If you didn't say anything bad, it should be okay. Best approach for next time, don't type, don't talk. And if you can, just mute everyone. Honestly, if you pinged your ping, maybe Riot can see it. Tell them about it in a [ticket](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new).
If he got banned for inting from bad ping, he would have a 14 day ban. Not a 10 game chat restriction. OP's punishment is from things he said in chat, not lagging.
: Will We Get a Response to Bot (Automated Script) Farming Issue?
Riot probably wont do much about it. They removed Twisted Treeline, which was the breeding ground for bots, so the botters had to move to somewhere else. They did nothing then, I don't see them doing anything now. All you can do is report all those you find who are botting so they can be flagged for the next script ban wave. Though hopefully with them being on sr and aram now we'll start to see them less and less as those maps have more people playing them then TT did, so hopefully that's more accounts being flagged.
: you must be new to player behaviour
He's not, he's just one of those people that believes reporting doesn't do anything.

: Lets talk the ban system shall we?
When was your last 14 day ban? If it was recent, then just one game of toxic behavior will get you perma'd, as it says on the card when you get a 14 day ban. And since you said the log that got you was bad and you deserved something, I'm inclined to believe the perma is fair without knowing what the log is or when your 14 day ban was.
Kamakas (EUW)
: A fourteen day ban is **not** fine, and you should write to Riot support to get unbanned. They will definately see that you are a new player, not intentionally feeding. And you really have to do it, because how the punishment system works, you are now basicly "flagged". So for next offence, be it for a reason or not, you could get your account permanently banned.
If he writes to Riot support to tell them he's a new player and only got matched with smurfs because he let his brother play on his account, then they're more likely to have the ban changed to a perma, as account sharing is against the tos and a bannable offense.

: just got out of a game where support lux went full ap becasue fuck actual supports right? so no leave the support items as is and punish mages harsher for trying to be played as a kill lane
People have been playing mages support LONG before this shit update. Wanna know why? Because, for those of us who actually support to support, Riot keeps nerfing actual supports. Riot decided to say fuck it to enchanter and tank supports a long ass time ago when they nerfed nearly all the support items items, and then most of the shields. Only a few patches ago did a support get a small buff to her shield, but that requires her to use (and land) her spells for a slight cd reduction. When all Riot is doing is nerfing anything related to supports, it's hard to be able to play an actual support.
: Bring back bans AND unlock all champs so aram accounts, or those with nothing but champs that stop in aram as a coincidence, can't ban out their bad champs and further restrict their pools to supreme pickings
Unlocking all champs, in just aram, would cost them too much money according to an actual Rioter. So sadly they'll never do it. Which is even more of a reason for them to bring back bans. If it's gonna cost you too much money to unlock all champs in just ONE mode, then give us bans. Those don't cost anything. At least, I hope they don't since they're part of normal draft and ranked.
: Everything else is w/e (allthough lmao if you think that League is the only game with those problems), but...This: > freezes my computer If that's what I'm thinking of (gets stuck on loading screen and you're unable to close the screen), it's not Riot's problem. It's Microsoft's blatant incompetence. Even fucking Apple did it right by making the easier way the one that allowed you to close things properly even when fullscreened. Your only option is to either switch to a Mac or play in Borderless/Windowed. > can't be run with most other programs I have legitimately never had any issue (besides ping) running League with any other program open. Are you referring to the "can't run anything with cheat engine in it" thing? Or is this issue with other programs as well?
I play borderless mode, and if the client freezes in the loading screen I can't tab out to something else. I can close everything by pressing alt+tab, excluding League. I have to completely force shut down my laptop to fix it. NOTHING ELSE does this to me. NOTHING. It's only League. I refuse to believe it's MY problem when I have no issue at all with anything else doing this.

: >Lucian gets another valentines skin next year so he can have a matching one with Senna. Champions don't get skins within the same theme unless they have re-assocatied their previous skin with a different group, Things like Witches Brew Blitzcrank happened because Definitely Not Blitz is now associated with April Fools. Or Snow Fawn Poppy happened because Rage Doll was put into the Toy Box theme. So it's 100% unlikely for Lucian to get another Valentine skin cause his still perfectly fits the Valentines theme. Plus they don't have to release another skin for him to release a matching skin for her.
You do realize there's 2 skins lines in the valentines skin set? Sweetheart and Heartseeker. Lucian's is skin is Heartseeker, nothing saying they wont give him a Sweetheart skin to match Senna. Besides, look at Leona. She has BOTH the legendary eclipse skins, so there's nothing saying Riot won't give someone 2 skins for the "same" line since they've already done it once.
: No. Lucian just got his skin.
I mean, Akali literally just got a popstar skin not even a year ago, yet here she is getting another popstar skin not to mention her project skin that came out in August of this year. And Qiyanna is getting another skin only after 5 months, where as Neeko had to wait almost a year to get another skin. Riot doesn't care if someone "just got a skin." If they think it fits, they'll do it. Hell, it wouldn't surprise me if Lucian gets another valentines skin next year so he can have a matching one with Senna.
: Premades should not be able to honor each other or it should be more emphasized...
10 times out of 10, my/one of my premade is doing hell of a lot better then everyone else while not being toxic. I'd much rather honor my premade over the other 2 or 3 that were complaining the whole game and not even trying.

: Banned for third party programs, but never used one
This isn't a bug. You need to send in a support ticket to talk about your ban. Boards can't help you with this kind of ban.
: Yes. When i say Kayn I mean Rhaast. Also Shadow Assassin heals a lot too. He is so mobile that I think he doesn't need any healing. His clear is briliant as well. Comparing him to my champions is like comparing a Mecha Godzilla to an ant (all my champions are Tier 5 because Riot doesn't care about them). Also his basic form, which is Kayn kinda sucks, but if a good Kayn player knows how to play in early game, he might actually be unstoppable. To gank a Mordekaiser as Twitch I have to come close to him while invisible, if he ults me I cannot do anything. Supports get dragged into his ult and killed there in teamfights, without being able to do anything. Early QSS is like giving up the lane. But yeah, Mordekaiser ult would be ok if it was a skillshot, because as for now when he ults his ult animation is almost unnoticable so even if you have a counter build in your kit you won't manage to use it at the exact moment that you should. Kayn, I feel that its a good champion and only that healing feels unfair but that can be countered as well so its just a minor problem. Nothing big enough to make radical changes.
I'm still iffy on Shadow Assassin healing a ton outside his w, but I'll see if I can find someone doing it later, as well as see how much people are healing from the w alone. Unfortunately I don't see him much myself in games to say much. I can come back afterwards to give my opinion on that bit if you'd like. Kayn himself being meh when you don't know what you're doing I would hope is intended, it would be bad if he was super strong as base Kayn when you don't know him then evolved into even worse. At least this way if you get him behind then when he does change forms he's still behind for at least a little while, if not the whole game depending. Maybe for Morde ult a much more noticable particle would help instead of it being turned into a skillshot? Perhaps fixing that first and seeing if that changes anything would be better before outright making it a skillshot. And if nothing changes, then see about making it a skillshot would help. Though I can admit/agree that Morde ulting the support is annoying. And thank you for taking your time to respond and explain those points more. c:
: Standing around the Nexus
It's literally just about getting even more kills and/or gloating about the stomp. They think it's hilarious they won in champ select and don't give a shit about how the enemy team feels. I hate when people do this, though I find it hilarious when the enemy team does that and proceeds to get aced and lose the game because they'd rather gloat than end. I also don't mind the loss if my own team does it, 'cause if they couldn't stop being jerks for 5 seconds in a clear stomp, then they didn't even deserve to win.
: There are some problems with the game that I don't want to ignore
I have a few questions on some of your points. 6; When you say Kayn, do you mean Rhaast? Kayn doesn't have any kind of healing on his ult without Death's Dance if he's not Rhaast, and even then I've yet to see a Kayn or Shadow Assassin Kayn heal a ton from his ult with Death's Dance. If I've missed Kayn himself healing like that then please point me to where I can see it, as I'm confused here. 15; While I can also agree Morde ult is a pain in the ass, there is a counter. QSS, invisibility, being unstoppable, and being untargetable cancel his ult, while spell shields block it if you can time it right. Are people just unaware of this or do they not have the stuff or have the stuff up for it? Other than those two questions, I'm not concerned about everything else. You're basically spot on.
: holy shit, well I guess I shouldn't be surprised. League copies a little bit of everything from wukong for wukong, attack on titans for camille, nine tail fox for ahri, bioshock for nautilus, mega man as a big influence on ezreal's pulsefire skin and many many more. But if you dare copy league by making a moba, aka mobile legends, get sued lol. Yet, riot copies auto chess games with tft :/

: No. This is not me being upset by a few games recently. I've not gotten anyone banned for this for three years. THREE YEARS. It's a legitimate problem.
And how do you know? Are you just reporting people and then checking them 24/7 to see if they've stopped playing? You're not guaranteed to get the notice that someone was punished. The notice is, unfortunately, set to very rarely happen. There's also the fact that not everyone outright gets a 2-week ban. If they're not constantly toxic and not using hate speech, they're more likely to get a chat restriction if they haven't already. Just because you didn't get the notice, and they're still playing, doesn't mean they didn't get a punishment.

: Support Mains of the Boards: Why do you supp? ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ
~~Killing people with Redemption brings me enjoyment.~~ Being serious- I used to be a jungle, mid, and adc main. But I lost my jungler seasons ago, and whenever I would mid my adc would be mad at the support and if I was adc my support would either leave me alone the entire lane phase, be passive as hell even on aggressive supports, prefer to watch as I die, or would have no map awareness. So I decided to take up the role myself. It actually made my map awareness better, and I've found I tend to be more impactful in fights as a support than as a mid laner or adc. And being able to clutch save people with a Raka w/ult or Janna shield/ult is quite a nice feeling. Of course, shielding a turret as Janna that the enemy is trying to use to execute also gives a nice feeling.
: You don’t go both GLP and Rylai though, that’s slot inefficient and double dipping gold for the same effect.
Before his rework I was seeing people buy GLP and Rylais. I've even done it, as I've found that it helps when a melee champ jumps on me to get them into star range. Hit them with the GLP after they've used their gap closer, and usually I'm able to get them in star range and keep them in it due to the rylais.
: Can't they just put the original URF but with bans ? I'm tired of playing champs I don't like, or don't want to.
That's actually how original URF was at one point. But it was only 3 bans, so sometimes Hecarim or Sona or Lux or Katarina or Garen would still get through, and people cried. So rather than upping the bans, they just made it random and refuse to acknowledge that people don't want random URF, and instead use the excuse people quit the game after playing original URF.

Go ahead, tell me bans were stupid. Honestly? Those of you complaining over them being a thing were the ones who didn't like you couldn't play Lux, or Fiddle, or Veigar. I was a Sona main, and I LOVE playing her in aram. I currently main Janna and Soraka. Those were 3 of the supports I saw banned often. And you know what? I'd rather never play any of them in aram again, if it meant we could get rid of the annoying shit such as Kai'Sa, LeBlanc, Fiddle, Pyke, and Veigar. They didn't always get banned because they were strong, they got banned because they were annoying. As an ARAM player (over 9k games on my account), I'm vehemently against bans. It goes against the spirit of the game mode. Sure, dominating with an unfair advantage can be fun. On the flipside, the risk of having to play against the champs you loathe the most is part of it. It's not supposed to be, "I'll play a random champion into any random champion... oh, but not X, Y, or Z because I hate them." It feels too cherry picked. I'm also of the opinion that the best way to get over a rough matchup is to play through it enough that you can adapt in response to the known threat. Banning it every time means you never improve against it and potentially get worse due to being out of practice against it. People tend to think that I have that opinion just so I can play broken champs on ARAM, but I don't even own many of the ones people associate with "ARAM accounts." I've literally played Ziggs once in 6 years because I got stuck with him in ARURF (which obviously isn't ARAM). I trade/roll him every time in ARAM. Zyra? Heimerdinger? Don't own them. Kog? Sivir? Varus? Ezreal? Nope. Illaoi? Uh uh. Do I have some of the god tier ARAM champs? Sure, mostly from unlocking them to play as supports on Summoner's Rift. Sona and Fiddlesticks were among my first, before I was even high enough level to play ARAM. If Riot were to move forward with bans as a permanent feature for ARAM, I'd prefer that to not be in the players' hands. In keeping with the spirit of variety, rather than allowing players to permaban specific champions, they should dynamically ban champions every patch. They have the play and win rate data for every champion in every game type. It's as simple as banning the 10 most dominant champions in ARAM from the previous patch for the entire current patch. Everyone gets a reprieve from the unbearable tier of champions, and the next patch changes up which ones are available/disabled. Nobody gets permanently denied their champions, and people who previously only tunneled on the OP champs have to learn new champions and strategies to abuse. People dodge enough as it is. I don't want them to add a longer duration to champ select to shoehorn player bans. That just means when people inevitably dodge because their favorite champs get banned, I've had even more of my time wasted.
That's part of why most aram players agree that IF we can't have bans back, to make ALL CHAMPS AVAILABLE. Then we get less of a the "lose by default because champ select" games. And making random bans would honestly make people dodge even more. 10(?) shit champs got banned by random? 9 times out of 10 someone is going to dodge because it didn't even help in any way. And if they just do it by, "oh this champ has high winrate, ban from aram for 2 weeks" then that doesn't even fix anything. Half the problem/annoying champs got unneeded damage buffs. Or they have a spell that makes the game completely unfun. That's what makes them annoying. Not because they have a high ass winrate. If I don't want to go against a Fiddle, it's not because he has a high winrate. It's because I'd like to not be silenced every 5 seconds for a game. Also, you can't have variety when the "variety" depends on what champions the player has. And as someone who has all champs unlocked, I rarely get most of them. Not much variety there. Adding bans isn't going to change variety. Maybe it was just me, but I saw less dodging when bans were a thing, compared to now and before bans. The time for aram champ select is honestly long enough to take 5-10 seconds of it and make it a ban phase without adding more time. We don't pick champs unless we're picking them from the pool, so there honestly isn't a reason to make the champ select time even longer like they did. Your time gets wasted as is when people dodge 5 times in a row. I've had up to 8 dodges in a row before finally getting into a game. I also get people dodging because someone has one of those annoying/op aram champs and refuses to trade. It still wastes my time. Adding a ban phase and people dodging over it isn't going to waste any more or any less time.
: "So we can focus on our larger game modes"
I have to agree with the others who hope TFT dies. I hate the game mode. Riot is focusing way too much on it. TFT hit live, then the _very next patch_ got ranked. Nexus Blitz didn't even get any CHANGES until they took it down and tried again, other than champions being disabled. Same with URF. They didn't fix anything while it was up, they only disabled champions. Other modes basically got ignored the moment TFT was live. Oh, SR is full of bugs? Nah TFT. We get it, Tencent owns like half of your company if not the entire thing. How about this? Use the ton of money you get from all these event passes and chroma bundles to buy your damn game back so you can finally start listening to ALL your players again and not just your Chinese owners.

: What is this ?
Since you want an aram players opinion... I hate some of the balance changes, love some of the others. What I like: Relic. I like that now someone can't be a dick at full health and take it and you're fucked. Yes, sometimes shit still happens and either someone accidentally paths over it, or we forget to ping we're going for it, And yes their are still those assholes, but at least even if someone is full health and takes it, those without a lot of health still have a chance to get it. Melee champs are no longer screwed right off the bat due to poke. Yes, it's still a pain in the ass and always will be, but at least they have a slim chance to actually be useful at the start which lets them be useful later on. What I don't like: Their damage "shield"(Not sure what else to call it). Not the way it is. Why? Simple. Go against any champ who has a skill that can proc it, and watch as it either doesn't even proc or blocks literally nothing. I've seen many a Kai'Sa w chunk people even when it procs. Partly because it only blocks 15% of damage, but also because Kai'Sa got a +12% damage _buff_. Champions with high damage being buffed. Kai'Sa is one of them. LeBlanc has a +12% buff, Katarina has a +5% buff, Kha'Zix has a +8% buff, Zoe has a +5% buff... honestly a lot of champions with a damage buff didn't need their damage buffed. The removal of bans. Go ahead, tell me bans were stupid. Honestly? Those of you complaining over them being a thing were the ones who didn't like you couldn't play Lux, or Fiddle, or Veigar. I was a Sona main, and I LOVE playing her in aram. I currently main Janna and Soraka. Those were 3 of the supports I saw banned often. And you know what? I'd rather never play any of them in aram again, if it meant we could get rid of the annoying shit such as Kai'Sa, LeBlanc, Fiddle, Pyke, and Veigar. They didn't always get banned because they were strong, they got banned because they were annoying. Damage taken buffs... Yes, lets make squishies take even more damage. Thanks Riot. So my take? No, most of the balance changes are bad. Certain champs need damage nerfs, not buffs, while others need to take less damage, not more. They also need to either bring back bans or make all champions available if they don't want to bring back bans. I've seen many aram-only players agree, we'd take ALL champions being unlocked if they don't want to add bans back.

But putting a Warmogs on a 3 star Braum meant healing. And that healing helped a lot. The AI could've potentially aggrod differently. There's so many variables in the game to just say "Warmogs won me the game," and not the randomness of the champion movements winning it.

There's so many variables in the game to just say "Warmogs won me the game," and not the randomness of the champion movements winning it. Nope. My set up was in the bottom spot just above bench Braum in the corner, Varus, Lulu, Morgana. Then in the line above them was Nidalee, Garen, Warwick. The entire final fights, the ai stayed the same. They targeted the same people, jumped to the same spots. As shit as the AI is, it doesn't change much unless you actually change your set up.

: One item doesn't completely change the chances of you winning that game. You probably had something else you could've done to win. I really doubt you were absolutely dumpstering people then you started losing. Chances are, people transitioned into better builds after that point compared to you.

: Psh I see nothing wrong with double stacking items that are incredibly powerful by themselves including one that infinitely stacks the one mechanic in the game that generates mana. absolutely. nothing. wrong.

Of course not! Especially now with a champ that can use their ability to give mana! Not a problem at all.

Uh, no. Mordekaiser is from Immortal Bastion aka pre-Noxian, butnis in Death Realm now. That's like calling Xin Zhao a Demacian while he is from Ionia and his face profile makes it ao obvious, Jesus Christ. Plus even if they WERE both from Shadow Isles again(since they WERE in Mordekaoser's pre-rework lore) wouldn't Thresh want exactly the opposite from the OP's suggestion?
My point was that Thresh can't reach the Death Realm the way Morde can. Morde can come and go as he pleases, he claimed it as HIS world basically. Assuming one only goes there if they die, and Thresh is undead and never died, Thresh never would've gone there and probably wouldn't know how to get in or out. Why would Thresh want the opposite if he's helping his teammate? Wouldn't letting his teammate die be counter productive since he can't harvest their soul?

No, but the MR is pretty good. And it builds into an item that GIVES combat stats. {{item:3139}}. Mercurial Scimitar gives +50ad and +10% lifesteal along with the +35mr from QSS.
: New Thresh Lantern Mechanic
This idea is neat, however, there is one flaw. Thresh and Morde come from two different places. Thresh is from the Shadow Isles, while Morde is from the Death Realm. As far as we know, Morde is the only one who can freely go in and out of the Death Realm. When the ruination happened, everyone struck ended up in a state of undeath, so they didn't actually die. For this to make sense lore-wise, and Riot loves trying to tie everything together with lore now, they'd have to either move Morde back to the Shadow Isles or move Thresh to the Death Realm. For the time being all we can do is buy qss and take cleanse unless Riot decides to do something else to make Morde ult less annoying.
: Riot next week: We decided to remove our forums since there was no activity, and from now own you can post on reddit while we have more slaves and bots to censor everything that isn't esport, and submit a bugs via tickets, we don't care about them anyway until we see them in a live stream esport tournament.
Oh no, they don't care about bugs even if it's from one of their pro players or in a pro match. If a Rioter doesn't get the bug, it doesn't exist, even with proof of the bug.

I've been playing this game since 2013. I on and off supported from then to 2016, where I just went to being a support main. I've watched as I slowly went from being able to actually protect my adc to watching as my adc dies before I can even press a button. Every meta was a damage meta. Tank meta was even a damage meta, as they had to buff damage to deal with tanks before they decided to just nerf tanks. This meta is an even worse damage meta. Before, you had the chance to do something. Getting jumped on or pulled wasn't a death sentence. Now? Now you have to hope like hell you can survive the first minute of the game to be able to even be able to do something at all the rest of the game. Sure, every meta had that chance to see someone get one shot. But at least back then it wasn't every single game and you could usually laugh at it. Back then getting one shot by a Nidalee spear was actually funny after you got over the shock/anger. Now it's just annoying and tilt-inducing. Back then supports were useful. Now it feels like you have to be Brand, Lux, or Morgana and go full ap since Riot keeps trying to find ways to nerf shield supports. Hell, Lux got her shield nerfed recently because when Riot last did shield nerfs, Lux wasn't played almost exclusively support like she is now. Back then we had actual defenses, runes and masteries that worked together. Now we have some weird shit that just gives us damage in some way, shape, or form that makes it even harder to stay alive. Back then tanks didn't go tank and 100-0 you. Now that's almost all you see, a tank 100-0'ing someone. And I mean actual tanks, not bruisers. Yes, damage has always existed. No, it hasn't been such a problem back then as it is now. If we've been looking at the past with rose tinted glasses, holy FUCK how did we miss years of nothing but one shots? Because I don't remember playing a game of SR back in 2015 and watching my adc get grabbed and popped at level 1 like I see now.
