: Are we getting anything free or...?
I have no idea why its so hard for people on the Boards to understand that **_you are not entitled to free stuff._** This is something that applies to virtually all facets of life. You never have been entitled and you never will be. Also, they made it _very_ clear that they will announce everything that’s happening on October 15. Please read before you complain.
: Join Us Oct. 15th to Celebrate 10 Years of League
I mean the logo was kind of uninteresting to begin with, so I can’t say I personally care too much about the change. That said, they definitely did miss the boat on making something that was better.

Aider69 (EUW)
: I have a better idea for celebrating 10 years Why not make a game mode that revisits old league of legends it will be really fun but just old map and old items I think its a great idea to just give us a look of what passed by league
This idea has been visited *many* times in the past, but Riot has said that it’s unfortunately not possible or at least not plausible. Apparently, they don’t keep the code for stuff they remove, so they would have to completely rebuild it from the ground up. Regardless of whether that’s a good idea, legacy League would cost so much than they would sensibly be able to get back, unless they added a bunch of paywalls, which obviously aren’t popular with the fans if Eternals and Little Legends are any evidence. Sorry, but it’s not happening anytime soon.
: It was a smart move to disable voting on this thread. You would just see how nobody wants this garbage especially for irl money. :)
Um... I don’t know if you know this, but... Dev Corner posts never have voting enabled. This one ain’t special.
: the problem here is you ping 10 times. that is ping spamming and your team WILL ignore you if you ping spam cause it is dickish. you only need to ping at most twice or even thrice.
Well, it’s not like I ping 10 times in a row or that I always have to use that many. I usually ping 3-4 times as soon as I see them leave to show one, that they’re gone, and two, where I think they might be. If they refuse to move for a few seconds, I’ll send another 2-3 pings their way since this is probably their best chance at getting away. Finally, if they STILL aren’t moving and I know that the enemy is right about to pounce because there’s no way they wouldn’t, I send another 4-5 as their last warning.
Lapis (OCE)
: This belongs in Rant, not Gameplay
Well, I felt like it fell more into gameplay since it has more to do with actually advising people on how to play. I'll admit that it is quite rant-y, but I _am_ trying to better other players. Besides, it's not like anyone actually goes on Rant. How am I supposed to reach anybody there?

I mean, if we're being completely honest, not being able to show off your accomplishments _technically_ doesn't prevent you from playing games. If we define "gameplay" as the physical act of getting into a game with other people, playing that game, and concluding that game, being able to show your progression _technically_ doesn't fit into that model.

: Riot is becoming EA
> bam https://memecrunch.com/meme/BP4LJ/we-re-all-very-impressed/image.gif?w=400&c=1 Seriously, though, you really can’t compare Riot and EA, considering what got people so riled up at EA in the first place was how they would lock certain gameplay behind paywalls. Riot, on the other hand, has always kept their game free to play. Yes, they might both make stupid decisions or have greedy business practices, but that does not automatically make the two the same. Even if they are equally bad, they’re at least not bad in the same way.
: Respect is something you earn. Not something you have or you own.
Well, here's my question: Was it respect you denied them or was it decency? You really didn't give us a lot of context on the situation, so it may look like one thing to you, but it might look like something else to another person. Was the removed comment rude? Obviously. Was there a more mature route you could have taken? Definitely. Was it removal-worthy? That's questionable, but I can't make any assumptions because, again, there's not enough here for me to make an informed opinion.

I thought we were informed enough to let that meme die, but apparently not. He didn’t balance the game. He said so on several occasions. He only helped along the “philosophy” of balance, whatever that means. Yes, he may have played a part, but he is nowhere near involved enough in the process for us to heap all the blame onto him. Also, you know why people stopped memeing about that quote? Because everyone suddenly realized how out-of-context is was. Even without context, it makes perfect sense you don’t need to know how to do surgery in order to manufacture the tools required for surgery (although it would help). You only need to know what the tools need to be capable of. Likewise, you only need to know what is required of you in order to balance the game. Playing it yourself is unnecessary if you’ve got the statistics both from people inside and outside the company. Besides, he DID play the game often, as he personally confirmed several times on these very boards. He only said it to make a point.
: Never played Vel but I can see the need for his zoom out ult (eg. Jhins) What about Varus? I like him as a champ personally but would like to see something change a little on his kit.

: How in the 9 hells is the new death recap MORE BROKEN THAN THE PREVIOUS ONE.
Well, if memory serves, the reason it took them so long to change it was that the old one was such an old piece of code that they’d have to reconstruct it from the ground up or something to that effect. If we look on the bright side, then the fact that they’ve gone through said reconstruction should make it much easier to fix in the future. Just being hopeful.

: that was just day 1 and a bug. give it a week and it'll be moot.
Were you on the PBE? Every day it took hours just to log in due to the sheer amount of people wanting to play. To my recollection, this is not like something we've seen before with League, and if it is, it is most certainly not a common occurrence, let alone something that happened with NB.
: Well, currently auto-chess is really popular. Although, the mode has only been out for like 2 days and I am already bored of it. NB was fun as hell. I really miss it. I feel like NB was supposed to make a re-appearance but then TFT got put into works and NB was shelved because... Riot said that it would be tested on live and then worked on and then released again. Only the second release never happened. I just hope it comes back along with other RGMs.
https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/en-us/2019/04/dev-nexus-blitz-wrap-up/ > While we’re no longer considering Nexus Blitz as a permanent mode for the foreseeable future, we are going to treat it as a great mode to accompany events, especially given its flexibility to feature new in-game events and rewards.
: Bring back nexus blitz
I mean, not even NB was able to clog the PBE servers like we saw TFT did. I think the numbers speak for themselves. I personally don’t care about either mode, but the data is more than apparent.

I know people who have played since before seasons were even a thing, I know people who are just getting into the game, people who only play ranked, those who only play casual, those who only come back once a year for URF, those who were on different servers than my own, those who are coaches, and those who dropped it completely. I never said that my statement. The same thing that happened with URF happened with Nexus Blitz, in that the fluctuation of players went down after they removed the game mode, and of course they don't want a redo of what happened there, but with the amount of hype put behind it and the fact that they then decided to not make it a permanent game mode upset more than when Clash wasn't working. I'll use Kairoptra's logic: considering there were more people who got upset that Nexus Blitz left and not as many when Clash bugged out, more people therefore cared more about Nexus Blitz. Naturally, I'm not trying to speak for the majority of League players. I'm just speaking from my 5 years of experience with League players.

I'm just speaking from my 5 years of experience with League players. That wasn’t my logic at all, and I don’t appreciate you misquoting me. I was saying that the reason you saw so many people complaining about Nexus Blitz _on that particular video_ was because they were upset. Those that wanted Clash over Nexus Blitz were satisfied with the response they got and thus felt there was no reason to comment. Therefore, it became an echo chamber of complaints about Nexus Blitz. Since the other side doesn’t want to speak on the issue, we have no idea what the split is. I’ll leave it up to the other guy to refute the rest of your points.
: I Don't Think Riot Knows What Its Playerbase Wants.
You know, for someone who claims to need statistics, you seem to conveniently lose understanding of how they work when applied to your own argument. Let me give you a basic lesson in human psychology: people rarely speak up about an issue unless they’re upset by it. Therefore, your 74 comments don’t speak at all to what the player base actually feels. The people who want Clash are satisfied and going about their day now that their pleas have been satiated. The people who want Nexus Blitz aren’t, so all that’s left is an echo chamber. On top of all that, 74 comments are a far cry from a good sample size in a sea of literally millions of players. You’re only listening to what you want to hear. Don’t get me wrong, the complaints are plenty valid, but your argument is as good as the people you’re trying to argue against.
