: ARURF Extended for 4 More Weeks
Okay... cool... one question, though: why? Not trying to complain or anything; I’m just curious is all.
: Story behind your league names?
When trying to think of a name, I started going over that which interested me. I remembered that at the time I really liked bats, so I looked up the scientific name to see what it would yield. The bat genus is called "Chiroptera", which I read as "KAI-rop-TUR-uh", but immediately realized that couldn't be it. I found out the real pronunciation, but the one I had originally read stuck with me. I decided to spell it out as the phonetics sounded, and because if wasn't snappy enough, I combined the last two syllables. What I ended up was Kairoptra (KAI-rop-TRUH).
Zapzya (OCE)
: I only ever played her for an extended period of time back in season 3 to pubstomp in bronze (I was pretty bad back then). After I stopped playing her I only really played her for a couple games over the years, or in ARAM. She was fun, just not a lot of depth. I intend to try out the new kit for sure though. Looks quite fun, but I have changed over the years so I probably won’t main her. It looks better than the old kit though, not having to turn on your ranged attack late game seems like such an improvement. The only thing I hate is her base skins visuals, which actually have a massive impact on my enjoyment. It’s why I started playing and stil is one of the reasons i play A Sol, because I love how he and his abilities look. Luckily new unmasked Kayle looks good. It’s no old Kayle, but its a big step up from her base skin IMO.
Thanks for the response!{{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}

: Why Do You Play A Champion?
I actually made a thread about this about a year ago for the great hentai monster himself (itself?). I've copied and pasted it below, but it's all gameplay, so if you want to hear my thoughts about his lore, then you skip to the paragraph below it. > Let me start out by saying that this is from my experience; you may think differently. I just feel like Riot did such a good job when designing him and making him balanced. > > I feel like he's one of those champions that's underappreciated by the community or otherwise overlooked because he isn't useless or broken. > > While he has mediocre cc, he has awesome peel. With Vel'Koz, you can't really carry, but you can take measures to make sure your team doesn't lose any harder so that you can come back. > > And the DAMAGE, holy crap, the DAMAGE you can crank out with this guy. But even with that damage, he has to rely on skill-oriented combos or has to get stupid fed, in which case the enemy team probably would have lost anyway. If he gets fed, he can burst down people like you wouldn't believe, but is still immobile and squishy enough to take out if he gets cocky or is out of position. Even then, he's got some escape tools, but they do take a good bit of skill on your end (or a lack thereof on your enemy's). > > If he's on the loosing end, he can still deal a good bit of sustained damage while still having the consequences of his normal squishiness and lack of mobility. There's always an opportunity to come back if you play your cards right, even though you still have the punishment of being behind. > > While he does require some skill, he's not overly difficult to master. Pretty much anybody can pick him up and find great success with a little practice. You don't need any fancy maneuvers, although they are fun and at times very useful. > > Fun. Now that is a word I would use to describe Vel'Koz. He's not too hard to play, but he makes you think. You've got an edge with all the true damage you deal, but that won't count for much if you just let yourself get picked off. You're a solo laner who has to be able to take care of yourself, but you also find great success in team situations with your AoE. If you can get some experience under your belt, Vel'Koz can almost never be a bad choice. > > In conclusion, I would like to sincerely thank Riot for making such an awesome champion. While I play him mainly for his kit, I do find his lore pretty intriguing. Unlike the other Voidborn who live to consume in the literal sense, he is definitely a different beast entirely. Tirelessly absorbing information without the slightest ounce of empathy, even with his ability to take human memories, he is the perfect researcher. Couple that with his all-terrain body and you've got a truly formidable creature, bordering on perfect in relation to his function. While there's not much to him character-wise, studying him as an organism (if you can call him that) is truly fascinating. Perhaps this thirst to learn more about him is part of why I chose him for more than one reason; perhaps I see some of myself in him (no pun intended). _"I must know more." - Vel'Koz_ {{champion:161}}

Rioter Comments
: About a month ago, I made a post saying I hate how Rioters never respond to negative criticism here
I think what made the whole DZK thing as bad as it was was the context in which it was said. The situation was already pretty bad without a Rioter stepping out of line and making the company’s image even worse. Other than that, I’m pretty much in agreement with you.

They did give us an update. It was in that Gameplay in 2019 video where they said it would come back early this year. I don’t know if that’s satisfactory, but you asked for an update, so there you go.
Ataraxas (NA)
: Forcing lore not to have and good and evil is just stupid
Well, having nearly universal ambiguity by itself is not necessarily bad. The real problem comes with the execution.
: Can we corale mages out of the support position
The problem is not so much that mages _can_ be picked for support, but more that they are _better_ than a lot of supports.
: Gotta say: Not a fan of Kayle's new look.
I felt like this at first as well, but the more I look at it, the more I just feel indifferent. I’m impressed with the amount of work that Riot put in, but I’m more concerned with gameplay at this point than critiquing the design. I wouldn’t normally be this way, but something about the new design just makes my brain go “okay... cool.”
: I support Kayle still going to be viable? As a man who has played Kayle Support I do hope she can still be one.
They said that they wanted to keep her heal and invulnerability in some form, so maybe?

All I did was post a video and say “this is what Riot said”. Nothing more and nothing less. You didn’t have to reply to me. You didn’t have to say anything. You could’ve just moved on with your day. But no. You had to say something. You had to talk directly to me instead of starting a new conversation in which I was not involved. When you expressed your hostility toward Riot through a direct reply to me, you implied that you were refuting a claim that I never made. I didn’t think I’d have to explain the mechanics of basic social interaction, but you clearly lack the understanding. Also, I’m not playing the victim card. I’m saying that you’re talking to the wrong person. I’m basically that guy you call with a complaint who tries to forward your call to someone in another department. You can project your idea of pissy internet kid onto me all you want, but that’s not going to make it fit me.

I admit that it is one of those things that is mildly infuriating, but if it’s just one line of text instead of consistent toxicity throughout the game, that’s not really punishment-worthy.
: ARURF is the most awful gamemode ever introduced in league.
According to Riot, regular URF caused League to lose players permanently. That might not have been a problem when League was still growing since a bunch of people would come to fill their places, but now that it’s peaked, they probably don’t want to risk it. I’m not saying it’s the right decision (I personally don’t care), but I just want to make sure all sides of the argument are heard.
Orodruin (NA)
: Let us choose what color gem we get in our mastery emote
That’s... actually not a bad idea... +1 for you, good sir.
: No. We've learned from dynamicQ and basically everything else riot is not able to fix something. Just flat out remove it because everyone who is testing it hates it. No reason to try to keep it alive. The dynamicQ disaster could have been fixed in like a month considering the outlash instead riot tried to keep that abomination alive. Don't force another year of shitty ranked experience down our throats. That will definitely kill the game for good.
Oh, come on. It hasn’t even been a month yet. Just deciding to quit now would be quite lazy, don’t you think? Besides, people are still adjusting to the Ranked system. For all we know, this could just be a rocky start. Of course I’m not counting on that, but at least I have the sense to suspend judgement until people actually get used to it. Also, cut the doomsday crap. No matter what the change is, it’s always _The End of Riot_. I have seen you in particular on here time and time again. If you hate the game this much and have zero hope of it ever getting better, then why are you still playing? If you have quit, then why do you still come here to complain? Are you some kind of masochist? Have you deluded yourself into thinking you’re rightfully angry instead of willfully miserable? I don’t understand you. Not in the slightest.
: Remove position ranks. It's 10 times worse.
Removal should be the _last_ option, not the first. If there’s some way to remedy these problems without having wasted all that time and money, why not take it? What you’re suggesting is of the same kind as “just dodge the skillshot”; it may be a solution, but that doesn’t mean it’s the right one.

Rioter Comments
VvVVvV (NA)
: New Ranked System
Position ranks aren’t about knowing what your skill is in other roles; it’s about matchmaking. Say you’re a gold top and an iron jungle. You don’t want to be put in a game full of golds if you suck at or are new to jungle. However, let’s say you also want to get better at playing jungle, so you want to practice in a Ranked environment. Therefore, the best solution would be for you to be placed among players who are of a similar skill level. You also probably want your rank to represent your true skill, and if you are amazing at top, why should you let your lackluster jungling drag you down? I’m not saying it should’ve been implemented, but you seem to have completely missed the point of the change. Also, it would be fine if you were just coming here to tell Riot what to fix. However, calling it straight-up horrible is out of the question. It’s barely been a week; people are still adjusting and will be for some time. I don’t think anybody is in any position to make final judgements. We need to wait a while, like a month and a half, maybe two. Again, I don’t care if you want to offer critiques or feedback, but when you make a post like this, you get people riled up for no reason.

: Riot! You are Ruining League!!!
They’re called champions. I know that seems a little petty, but it just feels weird to call them heroes when basically everybody calls them something else.
: Why no URF?
According to Riot, regular URF causes them to actually lose players. To remedy this, they've been trying different iterations to see what happens.
kargish (EUW)
: This shouldn't had taken this long
You always have to complain about _something_, don'tcha?
: revert the ranked changes for a rank in each role
It’s only been a couple days. Wait a while before you make your final judgements. I’d say about a month and a half, maybe two. If you’ve got critiques, feel free to share them. However, you only have your first impression, so you are in no position to be calling for a revert and will not be for quite some time.
