I was responding to haaaaaaalp. Are you looking at posts in chronological view?
: Why? level 0 and 1 honor usually has nothing to do with poor gameplay. A lot of the time it is for minor stuff like flaming. While players do honor for good play, riot often bans for much less important things and those effect honor levels.
This topic has nothing to do with poor gameplay though. You don't drop to level 0 for being an unskilled player.

: New 2016 Remake of Ghostbusters Was Pretty Damn Good
It was okay. Felt like it had potential but some of the humor in the beginning fell flat. I think it started picking up around when the evil bad guy killed himself.
: They queued up to climb
Then what are they doing that's defined as "trolling" then? If not feeding, are they flaming? Like, what?
: Will we be banned?
Keep it in normals. Trolling in ranked as a team kind of devalues the whole "competitive spirit" for the enemy team. Yeah, sure, they get a free win but they queued up for a serious game.

: Counter-counterpoint: Nocturne's ult isn't really *flashy,* per se. Everyone in the game may be forced to see it, but its audiovisual effects consist of a (admittedly cool) quote and a screen filter. Garen's ult has a quote, a cool sound effect, and the most intense visuals in the game.
isn't Nocturne's ult the opposite of flashy
: Why do ppl hate support?
While I'm currently on break, tbh I occasionally need a break from the role itself because of the lack of diversity in carry roles (save for the recent shakeup in bot lane where I was playing the game constantly and having the time of my life). When it's support+marksman, the lane gets boring tbh. Not to mention several items are tailored toward supporting marksman rather than other classes so it can be difficult to roam effectively if I have a specific build focused on marksman. Lastly, spotlight. Most of the time the carry is going to get the credit. Support is an impactful role but it gets tiring being the second banana in what should be a two-man show.

She's probably too strong right now but damn the amount of self-contradictary content that gets upvoted to the top is fucking great.
None of those were contradictory statements, though. They have to contradict each other, but... they don't. You can have more than one type of favorite. I don't really have an opinion either way but you're not really discrediting OP's point here. Not to mention OP used hard data, as opposed to your strawman. I mean if OP is posting about Riot's new favorite, that's one thing, but the boards is composed of different people with different opinions. We're not a hive minded entity. Some shit is going to rise to the top at different times. Shit changes. DIfferent people upvote, some don't care to. People circlejerk. Life goes on.

The only possible defensive rune they could have would be Nullifying Orb, which would only have helped against their RFCs and Scorch (which isn't even 150 points of pre-mitigated damage combined). If we extended a similar scenario to the other two examples I made: the WW and Maokai would have both had a {{item:3065}} and {{item:3146}} then, and the Riven and Ahri both would have had {{item:3152}} and {{item:4003}}.

: I guess I don't really see the issue with the women's only panel
There is a difference between an event orientated toward a group of people and an event that specifically excludes a group of people in favor of another. One is empowering and inclusive, the other is patronizing and exclusive.
: I seriously don't understand this "Gaming is an industry dominated by men"
If Riot wants more women in the industry, then they need to make their game appealing to them rather than force a specific ratio. It's not like it's our fault, we just play the game. Although I'm not sure what else they could do. There's plenty of eye candy for both preferences, and every single champion regardless of sex is a complete badass. Sure, you got plenty of sexy champions but you still have brawny female champions to cater to those who prefer a rougher style and theme.

>I've gone to a cosplay event for the past 8 years, and I've never once witnessed any form of objectification, harassment, or unwanted physical contact. Of those 8 years, 4 have been with my girlfriend. She has had zero incidents involving others. Of course, this is purely anecdotal evidence, but I guarantee you the vast majority of women do not feel unwelcome coming to cosplay and fan events. I'd bet my life and soul on that. From what I know, it *does* happen on occasion, but the reason it seems so rare is that *gasp* event coordinators react quickly and give creeps the boot. Creepers tend not to last long because their behavior isn't tolerated, creating a healthier environment. Riot really ought to learn from them...

If they cared so much, why not just make a champion for it instead of alienating everyone else with a dumb PR stunt? Like, don't retcon existing champions like Darkin Archer Boi, but just make a champion in the same league (heh) as people like Neil Patrick Harris. We got plenty of champions from several walks of life so a [insert whatever] one wouldn't be too out of place, but this PR stunt is a shitstorm and all they do with diversity is talk about it. We're here to game, not join a political activist society. You want to promote diversity? Make a champion or something I guess.
