: Scarra's thoughts on the current state of the game
I love the example he gave of dmg creep in WoW arena. Wanna know the connecting thread between WoW and LoL? Ghostcrawler starts working on the game and all of a sudden dmg is out of control
: It's all GhostCrawler's fault!
Naymliss (NA)
: ARAM isn't ranked
Unlock all champs for ARAM... POKERAM destroyed the game mode
: Venting : playing a poke / skillshot mage is fucking frustrating with everyone having mobility
: Im tired of change, not game
Gotta keep the game fresh for LC$. Instead of having mastery of mechanics / champs as the core gameplay loop, lets just change things every season!
: As I'm seeing the hatred and vitriol towards Ghostcrawler increase, I'd like to bring up these quote
Ghostcrawler, WoW veterans know what you did to PvP in that game and we see the same decisions being played out in League since you were hired. DMG keeps going up and up, everyone QWER combos each other, only counter play is to not get hit. But hey if every champ can 3 shot each other the games balanced!
: Going to the natural history museum tomorrow!
Sounds like the New York one. Awesome Museum, recommend the Planetarium and the Blue Whale room (forgot what it's called). Also, ticket prices are suggested donations. I use to give them a dollar to get in when I was in High School
: What makes you want to quit League the most?
1, 2, 3. I think fixing 1 would alleviate at least some of the problems with 2 and 3 though
: The simple answer. **Noobs. ** Riot wants to cater toward new players. By adding RNG elements and excessive damage to both champions and runes, new players have the opportunity to shine. Flashy plays will swoop dat Polo and Gucci to the top. Riot thinks that by making League a casual friendly game, more people will play. More people means more money. Also, by implementing a new RNG loot system, Riot will be able to take advantage over impatient players who are keen to gambling. What Riot doesn't understand is that they are doing exactly what 343 Industries did with the Halo Franchise. Bungie's Halo 1-3 provided incredible competitive gaming with E-sports backing them up. MILLIONS of players played Halo 3. However, when 343 Industries took over, Halo 4 was released. Halo 4 was a complete casual snooze fest where players were able to spawn power weapons under their feet (hmm, think Zoe) and spawned a One-shot mini shotgun pistol as their secondary weapon... ( Also, think about one shotting champions and towers.) E-sports dropped Halo 4 because of it's casual atmosphere and the popularity died so fast. Even the legendary Chris Puckett left the Halo scene... Chris Puckett...
It's not because of noobs. Even though they are making things simpler MOBA's are still pretty daunting to jump into if you don't have friends holding your hand along the way, especially with the community ready to rage at any mistake a player makes because in Riot's infinite wisdom they added snowball mechanics to Solo Q. It's all about LC$. Shorter games, easier to spectate and broadcast. It's no coincidence that this game went downhill after they solidified the meta during S3 and started chasing eSports.

: Half of the games problems right now can be fixed by giving champions back their MR
Rightt mages are the problem... not auto attacks that crit you for more than a mage's skillshot every 1.5 seconds

: >stated intentions Regardless of what they've done, they want the game to be more competitive Whether or not they have succeeded or failed is an entirely different question And I would say the game is far more competitive now than it was when I started (mid season 3)
I think you are right that the game started out casual and then they started chasing the competitive scene once they saw how much money they could make off of LCS. I think the game was much more competitive back in s2-3. Snowball mechanics do not work in Solo Q, they are fine in a team environment where every player is on the same page and doesn't make game throwing mistakes, which is exactly what LCS is. Basically LCS ruined this game and I will fight anyone who disagrees {{item:1051}}

League of Auto-Attacks. When the ADC crits you for more than a mage's skillshot, much aim very skill

: Sure is fun getting held hostage by chimps, least I can try and pad my stats in the meantime
Funny.. because I hate getting teamed up with players like you. I can't count how many times I've had one person that whines constantly since champ select and spams the surrender button just because their lane lost, only for us to come back because we aren't playing against pros and people throw. Don't Q up for ranked if you don't enjoy the spirit of competition, that includes playing it out at your best even when the odds are stacked against you, because those are the most satisfying wins. People don't realize the "let's just surrender" mindset is a self-fulfilling prophecy. You will lose winnable games because of that poor attitude
: i do not like being put into an unfair elo system, riot i know how to fix it.
The fact is there is more than enough ELO to go around. It makes no sense that there are people trapped in ELO Hell when around 100 players own enough ELO that they never have to worry about end of season rewards. To make it worse Riot balances the system around the Challenger Class instead of listening to the majority of the playerbase. Why? Because these players bring in the viewers. Viewers = $$. It's all about the LCS Industrial Complex

Do people actually use that river move speed rune? I'm not complaining about it I'm genuinely curious as to who it works on, you would think supports would take scorch for the extra poke in lane

: What about the fact I need a key for me to even OPEN my stupid box. What about the fact that I likely need 5+ skin shards to get a single item of value. What about the fact that I even need to unlock my item with OE to even freaking own the item when other games have at least are nice enough to give me the item free of charge. Fuck, even Battlefront 2 gives me the starcards without bullshit disenchanting. What about the fact that I only gain one item from these boxes when a vast majority of other games would at least great 3+ items. And I get to own those items without having to disenchant them. What about the fact that chest now have new items that can possibly flood your boxes with junk - emotes, icons, ward skins all inside these boxes. Than you have champion shards and finally the thing you actually wanted, skins. But than if you don't own a whole bunch of skins, you can get junk skins as well. What's next? Chroma's going inside the boxes? What about the cold hard fact that I am getting a tiny bit of value back from RP purchases spent on these chests? Riot, my dude, if you were listening to me, OP, or anyone in the community, than you would fix your frankly very poorly done Gamble Boxes and fix them to at least have some kind of value and return in them. Now, I don't feel rewarded. I don't feel excited. I don't feel like my time and money has been well spent. I understand you can't just give away products but out of every Gamble Box I have ever seen, yours has to be the worst one yet. If you are going to go out of your way to force these things into your game (let's be real Cactopus, Riot has really forced them into the game too hard), than I, nor anyone else should have to complain about how cheap the system feels. It's a bad system, poorly done, that has gotten worse, and this is pretty much the only kind of reply we can ever expect to hear from you guys. You know what Riot should be doing? They would talk to us and take our feedback to heart. For League to keep growing and getting better, Riot needs to work with the community and listen and most important, communicate with us. We are your community and we need to have some kind of voice that can be heard. Right now though, it just feels like everything is falling on deaf ears. Even if you do take what we say to heart, we never find out until the damage has already sadly been done. Sorry Cactopus, but as a community, we are expecting a lot better from you guys and you guys just haven't hit the mark at all lately.
I think people are forgetting League is f2p. The original backlash was because microtransactions were creeping into $60 games. Then they slowly morphed into lootboxes after the success of CS:GO's case system. This current version of lootboxes sucks though. Grinding key fragments, getting S ranks in games with no box drops, having to disenchant a bunch of useless loot until you get something you want. It does not feel good. IMO they should have just kept IP and made skins purchasable at a ridiculous cost. Something you can work towards but if you want to keep up with skin releases it would still be better to spend RP
: Why do minions have a hard time landing dates?
: Burst champions have too much accessibility
You just counterplay them. Someone kills you in 3 seconds? You kill them in 2
: They want the game to be hots. Speaking of hots, blizzard is changing the game around to give hots an actual laning phase and better camera visibility. It actually feels like a moba now instead of a 5 man brawl death ball slug fest. If Riot doesn't fix their shit, then I'll probably be investing my time into hots, it has better heroes anyway
HoTS also has some interesting champs that riot wouldn't dare make. Like Vikings which is a 3 unit hero that you can split up and send to multiple lanes
: I miss the League where games weren't decided in 5 minutes.
: When you beware ping botlane 18x and they still both die to the warded midlane roam...
Nooo your suppose to follow your lane and get comboed from fog of war in the river. It's not like supports have an easier time keeping track of mini map cause they don't have to last hit or anything
: A summary of all the issues (according to the players) for Riot.
You forgot League of Auto-Attacks. Mage skillshot does less dmg then auto aim 1.0+ speed crits. Getting crit for 1k, no way to dodge cept don't be in range. Fun.

When I get mad, I talk out loud to myself. I've even got "stayed cool" on games that I've been furious with my team mates over. I've never been suspended for 14 days or any of that. It's easy, just don't type. You people forget the part where if you can't say anything nice, just don't type.
Yup I rage all the time at my monitor. It's a bad habit, but if you need to release stress might as well do it without being a dick to someone else
: A summary of all the issues (according to the players) for Riot.
It doesn't fail. Every season the dmg keeps growing and growing. It really effects some champions viability, and then they need to be reworked which ultimately adds more powercreep and the cycle continues
: At this point, it's very clear that we need a 4th keystone option for every path
Remove keystones period and let everyone play with vanilla stats. Too much dmg in this game anyway

Nowadays you are right though. It's interesting to follow the evolution(de-volution?) of internet slang. Like ROFLcopter is dead but we got LuL now

: Please tell me these Blitz skins are not keeping that ridiculous walk animation
I for one, love the walking animation on the new skin and wish they would keep it because it looks so dumb in a good way (like lollipoppy face). If I had to fix it though, I would use the skins current w animation as his walking and have w activate the exhaust flames when the buff is on

: Riot Games Just Published League of Legends' New Runes System!
I just hope they don't add excessive extra dmg into the game like keystones did...
: I would deal with bronze players ANY day, than to play with a diamond player
Platinum is "everyone sucks and is holding me back from diamond" Diamond is "I got diamond so I don't have to try to win anymore" I like playing with my bronze/ silver tier friends, they suck and they know they suck but I never see anyone really rage around that skill level
: I complimented a Zed on some fancy footwork he used to outplay me.
Teemo players are some of the most toxic, no pun intended they are legit the most toxic players I've played with. Them and most ADC's cuz they are used to being babysat to victory
: @Riot : These Star Guardian Quests Ask Way Too Much of the Player(s)
Agreed. Personally I don't mind the difficulty but: 1) Most of my friends quit the game over the years, I rarely have more than 3 on at a time 2) Those that still play don't play at the level needed to complete hard mode, they just play casual league
: > Well, unless you nerf her so hard she becomes literally useless. I'm currently exploring some Janna changes that aim to increase the viability of her offensive outputs so that her defensive ones can be toned back a bit. The hypothesis is that by improving her offensive potency and playmaking potential, she won't need to be so supremely good at being a shield/peel bot for her ADC. Interested to see how it plays out. Oh, and the changes we're testing now doesn't look very similar to the one that was talked about a few weeks ago, for what that's worth.
Nerf her shield bring back charged tornado clearing waves. Make AP janna mid a thing again!!
: After 5 years of League, I am calling it quits at the end of the season.
