: Riot thinks people enjoy flash plays.. we don't. People just abuse it with ults. Totally agree with you here though.
I mean nobody's answered my question so I don't see what the hold-up is. If we have three+ good spells, and only two slots, we gotta choose. Does flash always have to be best enough to be there?
Nhifu (NA)
: This has been asked for since the day of league. It's never happening. Because as soon as we buff something to be as good as flash.. they use it with flash.
But what if two somethings are as good as flash? What if flash was the weakest spell? {{sticker:sg-lux-2}}

iDarkWind (EUW)
: It's funny because: {{item:2423}} is a thing; {{item:3191}} is extremly overpowered vs lethality stackers; He has one of the most delayed burst as an assassin since his R takes 3 seconds to detonate; He usually doesn't get priority mid because in order to do so he has to use all his energy and cooldowns wich will make him extremly vulnerable for the next 15 seconds or so, that's why he usually freezes and CS under turrent; He roams as fast as anyone else, because you literally won't see a Zed using his W with 20 seconds cooldown to be faster, that's just plain dumb; His early game is great, not strong. His mid game is terrible and his late game is actually very good for an Assassin, but he is still heavly gated by energy in the teamfights, wich means that wihout a blue buff, he runs out of energy very quickly. But oh well, Board's players are always right.

You know Overwatch? They have a cute little healer named Brigitte. VA has a Twitter. Turned out that on release, Brig was a wee bit too strong. People thought no Bueno.

: Unfortunately there's not a lot you can do that Riot would approve of. Easiest and most preached option is the mute & report buttons, although these never made me happy at all, because I wasn't doing anything to make the community better (or at least it feels like it). There have been times where I've been able to make good enough points (sometimes rudely worded, admittedly) to get them to shut up for one reason or another, and there have also been a few times in my 9 years where I've gotten the "lol ok" which always indicates a win in the argument. Like I said though, Riot takes a "any talking back is toxic and you're equally at fault regardless of how rudely you talk back and how rudely they talked at you" stance so be careful with what you say so they don't immediately think to report you back.
>"any talking back is toxic and you're equally at fault regardless of how rudely you talk back and how rudely they talked at you" I wouldn't say *any* talking back is bad, but you shouldn't retaliate. You gotta remember you have other teammates who have to watch you go back and forth, so contributing to the negative environment is counterintuitive. Just don't do it.

He gets dragon/adc ghost and thats about it... So one of the major parts that was criticized when mordekaiser was reworked is because "he has no skill expression and is RNG". No seriously. There is pretty much no predicting how much damage he would deal with his Qs because of his build flexibility, and his shield amount constantly changes, while he himself is reliant if the enemy would let him hit them. Even the drake part is RNG to a point that it is not a constant performance. And that is excluding the ridiculous bugs he was that he produces on a daily bases that makes it worse. A toolkit that cannot be measured, and is confusing to both parties involved is just a "wtf" really.

: So we actually can watch your replays. I didn't see anything wrong in the Eve game. In the Warwick game the only thing you did was "not help kill the enemy team while they were wrecking your base." However, I don't think you could have done anything.

Your next intentional death. You walk up to the level 6 enemy bottom laners, alone, while level 4, while outside of your turret's protection.... To.... Defend the turret? To die and attempt to kill some caster minions? lol https://i.imgur.com/ZNZOmFY.png/img https://i.imgur.com/KXnhyzM.png/img https://i.imgur.com/nXSyFqr.png/img And then your next intentional (sort of?) death. You, being super duper behind, attempt to duel the full health level 7 Ornn (almost level 8 - reaches level 8 by the time you die) when you have just reached level 6 and have no gold or items. https://i.imgur.com/LnuPZt8.png/img https://i.imgur.com/wxDTY5g.png/img https://i.imgur.com/FOqET3p.png/img https://i.imgur.com/BZGP85x.png/img https://i.imgur.com/Kp6pRhs.png/img You do, however, appear to play normal after that. Just farming and taking dragons. I don't know what you said in chat. But it looks like you had 3 intentional deaths in one game (with only one of them being questionable - so 2 ints for sure). Does this deserve a 2 week ban? Well I didn't see the chat. I don't think 2 intentional deaths deserves a ban (especially since you won the game), but... Don't try to play it off as innocent. You did int. You just didn't int hard (and it was only in one game, not 3). If you were banned **_JUST_** for these games, I honestly think you deserve a chat restriction instead. If everyone who griefed "just a little bit" got hit with a 2 week ban, I think 10% of the League population would get hit. Heck I had a game today where I said "im afk" and AFKed for 10 seconds (in response to a teammate griefing me and pretending to help me with dragon then leaving to let me die). Do I deserve a 2 week ban for AFKing for 10 seconds? I'd hope not. Does the guy who left me to die at dragon deserve a 2 week ban for letting me die? If that was the only game he did it, no. (Note: The guy who left me to die at dragon griefed in another way as well - he initiated a surrender vote as we were winning. 3 people total voted yes. I was really mad at him, and really wanted to vote yes, but for the sake of the one person who actually wanted to win, I did not vote and it failed 3-0, and we won like 30 seconds later)
I don't see how a chat restriction would be a suitable punishment for intentional feeding...

: What they've done and are doing is intentional, of course, but it's not intended to "destroy" their own game. They tried, and still are trying, to shift from a MOBA to a Fortnite-like combat game; not in the sense of an actual FPS, but about the mechanics and the "pace" of the game. So now you have perma-skirmishing (see jungle changes) and insta-bursts all over; while objectives, utility skills and strategy being far less relevant. There is a lot of incompetence in all of that stuff, sure, and that's why I think it's not gonna end well at all.

Who knows, depends on if the police decide to press charges. No, making people show their face will never happen. You're very correct that the anonymity of being behind a screen is what makes attitudes like yours more prevalent.

: Meta-speaking, but I believe Riot is building a universe where LGBT+ is as accepted as straight relationships. I donโ€™t think Demacians have a problem with same sex relationships.
While I'm all for acceptance, I'd consider that a story copout. Yes, this world is fantasy, but it's inhabited by beings with independent thought and people tend to come to odds with one another for even the silliest things. I'd rather there be some conflict around the issue than the writers just throwing up their hands and claiming it as a LGBT+ utopia. Granted, considering all the insane and apocalyptic beings and shit that happens, who puts their what into who is probably not on the collective masses' radar, so my position isn't 100% concrete either.

That would probably explain it. Placements generally place you a bit lower at the beginning of the season IIRC, so you're going to have to climb a bit to get to your old place. Remember, just because you stop playing ranked as much doesn't mean others are. When more people are doing the climb, you're going to drop compared to them the next season if you haven't been putting in the same amount of effort. If you played ranked only to get rewards and then stop, it's not like your placements are just going to hand you the rewards just for participating. Could've worded that better, but I think that's the logic behind the ladder drop - not making it too easy.

Morgana deserves to be a badass villain if she's going to be one. otherwise she may just be some tragic outcast, which isn't as fun.
Oh buddy, you're preaching to the choir here. Let's just hope that Riot nails it.
