: Having looked at your games though, you clearly do not tend to do the objective thing and try simply for the win. When you support you don't appear to buy sightstone - number one glaring issue I have seen. To go off of that even more I looked over about 8-9 games and only one game did you buy vision wards where you bought 3 as malzahar. Vision won't show up in stats too much, but it is a huge thing for winning ranked games the higher you go. I can only assume if you don't do these basics then things like this are carrying over to other areas such as first tower secured, towers being secured in general. When to fight vs backing off and setting up a drag/baron. When to gank a certain area vs when you need to be around a certain lane to counter a gank. I have a feeling though that you would rather just be told you are the "best mid in gold statistically" so I will probably end there.

: Duh? lol never argued they didn't have players.
If there were 27 million daily users two years ago then Riot certainly has quite enough funds from satisfied players to keep "their game" up and running is what I'm saying.
: 1600 hours in 1 year not including smurfs? That's almost 4½ hours a day on average, assuming 365 days.
Yeah basically. I usually play 12 hours straight on Fridays and Saturdays as well.
Toastey (NA)
: I'm not sure what exactly you qualify as "holding your point of view". If that means sitting there and stubbornly not changing, then sure. That's easy. Am I operating under the pretense that I myself could personally run the entirety of the game better? Absolutely not. Am I correct in the assessment that flavours of the month and mobility creep and other such rampant problems in League have a very, very bad history in game design? Yes, I am. Am I correct in that micromanaging your own game's pro scene just leads to an unhealthy, boring scene that doesn't accomplish much? Yes, I am. Just look at the LoL scene. NA is in the dumpster (like every other year!), EU is slightly better than NA (like every other year!), CN is doing some funky bloodthirsty shit that may or may not work really well internationally (like every other year!), and KR is setting trends and playing the game at the highest level (like every other year!) There's barely any international competition (like every other year---except Season 2, when IPL 5 showed up Worlds and Riot got salty), so teams can't ever hope to improve against other regions. The prize pool is fucking tiny compared to other esports, and (this one is speculation and hearsay) pro players are paid paltry salaries compared to their counterparts in other esports (like every other year!). League of Legends is literally the only esport where casting talent is directly employed by the game developer (like every other year!), and it's massively unhealthy for both the quality of casting and for the salaries and benefits that those casters and analysts receive. And now Riot has to deal with the fact that they quietly turned a blind eye to massively illegal visa bullshit in every other year before this that involved import players. Surely, Riot knows best. Lastly, you seem awfully reluctant to answer my question about tenure, so I reiterate: how long have you been here? PS Calling people "kid" doesn't make your argument any stronger, nor theirs any weaker.
Let me put it this way mate. I have spent 1595 hours playing League of Legends in one single ranked season plus Season 6 to date and pre season. That doesn't include the amount of time spent on multiple smurfs. Now you on the other hand have only spent 2344 hours playing League of Legends. See the difference is it's taken you over 6 seasons to accumulate that number. Interesting right, when you put it in that perspective I have much more authority on the subject matter. In one more year I'll have played more League in 2 years than you had played in 7 years. Anyway I'm not going to entertain your comments anymore lol. It's just turning into harassment and underdeveloped arguments on your behalf. Reiterating your previous faulty statements does not make them correct lol. By the way NA > EU.

: >Comment war Can't even hold a civilised discussion or debate these days without being shot down by people who can't hold their own arguments. >I'm not a Riot Apologist, and neither will I ever be. Someone who thinks perfectly okay for Riot to push the meta around and someone who thinks Riot Knows Best is definitively a Riot Apologist. You got one thing right, though. They are beholden to millions of people worldwide. I wonder--oh, do I wonder--what would happen if those millions decided to ask for something better than what they have.
1. I have held my point of view easily against you. I have no clue where you got the idea that I wasn't, but my patience has been tested and I have played your little games long enough. 2. Kid. Are you telling me that you know better than the game developer about how the game should be run? Now in your own words that is : Fcking ridiculous. lmfao. 3. Don't make assumptions about people 4. Sit your ass down.
Toastey (NA)
: I didn't say it was immediately dying, but it is on a very, very damaging course. History says this, but players like you and Riot like to ignore history altogether. And to the contrary of your point, I play this game for the very reason that I think we deserve more. I play this game to keep my finger on the pulse, and to continue to lobby for changes that I think will benefit players---including even people like you, who play Rito Apologist at every possible turn. Returning to the good old Consent of the Governed analogy, I'm not the guy who moves out of a city when things are worrying. I stay in the city and do my best to make it better. I like(d) this game. I really did. I still very much enjoy some aspects of it, and I love the potential that the game has. I don't know when you started playing, but I suspect that I'm significantly more tenured here than you are. Popularity is not by any means indicative of absolute value. It's a decent approximation, sure, but the will of the masses is always very, very imprecise. Humans aren't robots, and they aren't sheep, but given the opportunity, most of them will act like one of those two, if not both. Okay, let's think about this the other way. What does playing defensive give you? What do you gain from being a Riot Apologist? A cookie? Nothing. You can only take the game at face value for what it currently is. You can't make it better. You can't expect better. You don't know if it's getting worse, or when it will get worse. You just sit there, play the game, and pray to Based God Rito that they ship a patch you like playing. If not, oh well---there's always the next Flavour of the Month, so you'll just wait for that. What kind of life is that?
I'm not a Riot Apologist, and neither will I ever be. This post is intended to clean up the boards from all the sh*t that gets posted on it by frustrated players who post before they think in regards to nerfing champions. You have turned it into a comment war on nothing relevant to original post. And look mate, you have to adapt to patches just like every other player in League. The world does not revolve around you and Riot isn't going to give a sh*t whether you personally like or dislike the patch. **THEY CATER THIS GAME TO MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WORLDWIDE**. If you want to quit League because you can't adapt to patch by patch then go quit. But don't fcking bitch about Riot and have a pity party on the boards, for our sake, and your sake.
: They wouldn't have the funds to keep "their game" the way they like it without their players.
And they certainly have their players. The latest stat had over 27 million daily users.

: Not making a life or death analogy, nor am I talking about the nature of cosmetics. But if you can't understand analogies or metaphors, or their purposes in language, then okay. :> It's perfectly fine to take everything as literally as possible and live life at face value. On a more serious note, I'm very concerned for the rapidly deteriorating health of this game. The mobility creep is unreal. The meta shifts are absolutely ridiculous. The way the pro scene is micromanaged _by the developer itself_ (by the way, this is literally the only esport where this much micromanaging from the developer happens) is appalling and damaging to esports as a whole. The lack of basic features like a modern client, integrated replays, and a sandbox mode is entirely without excuse. Yet again and again, both the masses of Riot sheep and Riot Games themselves refuse to directly address these extremely damaging issues. It's very concerning to me as somebody who started playing almost 6 years ago, and was very engaged by the gameplay 6 years ago. Don't you guys get that the game would cease to exist without millions of you coming back to play it every day? That's what I mean by "buy into". You're buying into Riot's ideas and their model of game development, and it's hurting the game. That's what I mean by "consumer market". We as players should recognise when we deserve better, and we should be able to speak up and be acknowledged by the developer when we're right. It is in no game developer's right to force its players to suffer through bad decisions (that have a precedent of a failure) while ignoring both game design and esports history and pretending that new trails are being pioneered. Please, guys. Realise that the game could be so much better, and that it would indeed be if enough of you just asked for it.
If you think that this isn't the game for you then leave it. If you realty believe that League is dying and you deserve more then you wouldn't be playing it anymore. You would find another game. Now to your comment about League's competitive scene dying, as well as the game itself dying I'm going to have to call your bullsh*t mate. League of Legends is the largest MOBA in the world. Here's the source kid. It has 76% of all MOBA players play it. http://venturebeat.com/2015/03/30/league-of-legends-dota-2-will-lead-pc-gamings-fastest-growing-sector-to-500m-this-year-in-north-america/

: No, in a consumer market, things exist because we buy them. The game is the way it is because players like you are okay with awful game design decisions, and continue to buy into them. Having flavours of the month and constant meta shifts is not the path to longevity, though it may grant temporary success. Chess has never been patched, and remains a massive sport. DotA 2 doesn't get big, game-changing patches nearly as often as LoL does, and yet their tournaments and pro scene are infinitely healthier, with much higher-quality tournaments and prize pools dwarfing even the Worlds prize pool. How would you like to play for $10 million USD instead of $2.1 million USD, eh? Think about the analogy of LoL being your city of residence and Riot being the local government. "We're the citizens of this town, so we have to put up with whatever the mayor or the local council wants!" "They don't owe the citizens anything, it's their town! If you're ungrateful and greedy and you want good public transportation, then move to another city!" (concerning replays and sandbox mode) "This city is successful because they keep changing how everything is run and we citizens have to constantly relearn what's currently acceptable." Fucking ridiculous
You're comparing Riot to a government. That frankly is ridiculous lol. Why can't you understand it is THEIR GAME if you don't like it, stop playing. It is that simple. Seriously.

I literally just said in my response that you can't even put forth that argument because half of those games were played in the 1750-1900 mmr range which is Plat IV-Plat II in solo que. A lot of those team ranked games I also laned against Diamond mids.

: As the person who made the call to seriously shorten (divided by 4, if memory serves) Azir soldiers' lifetime under tower, I'm not sure Zed shadow should get a similar treatment. Azir can easily get a 100% uptime on his soldiers, meaning he can make the tower not a safe zone for you at all. If we changed nothing about this behavior, Azir would push you in and then force you to back off behind your tower, outside of CS range. We tested this. It was not fun. Zed, by contrast, already has windows around his shadows. I feel it's okay to violate a core gameplay rule like "towers are safe zones" for short windows, but not permanently. If anything, my Azir mechanic brought him closer to Zed. As for distance, the same thing applies. Azir can always have a soldier or two out, and he can move them around as well. It becomes very easy for him to be a screen or two away from his soldiers. At this point even if the soldiers aren't active, they still represent a gameplay element the enemy has to pay attention to (because they COULD become active again at any moment). At some point you have to cut off how much of an attention drain you can be on the enemy. Again, Zed's shadows are windowed plus they can't move and Zed's mobility is intimately tied to them (so he can't move away from them). As a result, Zed doesn't really get to go super far from his shadows. I would also say that the coolest Zed plays I've seen were made possible by the Zed player displaying an astonishing spatial awareness for where his shadows were and what was going on around them. I think that's the kind of play we should reward. I think 4s of uptime every 18-14s can't really qualify as zoning, especially since putting his shadow out into an aggressive position means Zed gives up his escape. You're not wrong: playing against a good Zed is super frustrating, but that's the nature of assassins. As long as we communicate their windows of weakness clearly enough, your play should be to pounce on him when he's weak (i.e. when he's wasted his W looking for poke).

: ***
It's not stupid shit, it's called facts and i'll keep on repeating it until it sinks into your head. Zed is not "op" after 20 minutes once their apc and adc have zhonyas and qss, not to mention whatever hard point and click cc they have. Thus his engage is severely limited and his target selection is much more difficult. And if you can't lane against a Zed consistently then that's your own fault for being a bad laner. Get good kid and stop crying about it on the boards. I agree that Zeds laning is strong right now, but to start breaking down and crying about it all over the boards is a bit immature, talking about immaturity, let's not even mention when these people start to verbally harass players. In conclusion however, if you have such a major issue with a Zed lane, then the problem lies within your own personal laning. period.

: how do you people even climb ranks
Lol I feel you, there's so many irl friends of mine who are managing to climb and win solo que games even though their mechanics are straight garbage. The elo system is broken, switch back to mmr and implement a new system to calculate a players mmr. It utterly disgusts me when I see players win solo que games consistently going 1/7/4 or 2/7/3. Like they honestly should win 1 LP for a performance like that lol.
: Can we just give Zed the Azir treatment?
Zed's not op right now so everyone calm down. His laning is back to it's season 5 spring split strength, but he still is useless in team fights as ever against teams that itemize and draft properly against him. Ever heard of QSS? Ever heard of Zhonyas? Ever heard of point and click cc?
