If you’re opening yourself up to counterarguments, you might want to actually go into why you have the position you have instead of just saying “change my mind”.

Y'know, instead of making an irrelevant attack on the person arguing against you, you could always... y'know... actually try to refute them. Learn how to argue and then come back, unless of course you're trolling, in which case there are far better ways of entertaining yourself that doesn't waste the time of people who are trying to talk about actual life-threatening events.
: I ran away from my home
Very misleading title. If you're looking for advice and/or sympathy, don't start by deceiving your audience, whether intentional or not. That aside, I don't feel comfortable giving an opinion on your situation. It's easy for me to believe you and see a pair of shitty parents who only care about themselves and are completely out-of-touch with their kid, but it's also easy to see a rebellious POS teenager with zero self-awareness whose parents happen to not get along. As an outsider looking in, my view is very limited. Just try to talk things out with your father and make sure to look at things logically and objectively. Otherwise, you might end up making a stupid decision based on feelings that will land you in a worse position than before.
: Toxicity Shouldn't Be Reportable
My question is why you _have_ to be able to use it. All Riot asks of you in return for letting you play their game is for you to not be toxic in any capacity, whether it be typing things in chat or intentionally feeding. Are you really so immature that you can't even do that and have to go on the Boards and whine about how hard your life is that you can't call somebody you'll never see again trash over the internet? Yes, the mature thing to do for the person who sees the toxicity is to hit the mute button, but the mature thing for the person _being_ toxic is to not say anything at all. We shouldn't even be having this conversation.

Sorry to bother you, but I have a quick question: Before we pick our house, we're able to view the "profile" of each one with the qualities attributed with it as well as pro players and streamers who fit into that house. Is there any way to view these profiles after picking? If there is, I haven't found it.

I doubt it as not even Norra knows what she is picking up, she is simply gathering stuff without detail knowledge of it and most world runes are probably in someones posession already or well hidden...
Well, the story seems to be told from Yuumi's point of view, so I think it's intentionally vague so that we only know as much as her. Norra's reverence with these objects suggests that perhaps she knows something we don't; it seems like it'd be a waste to mention it and then it not amount to anything other than a Yordle's weird hobby. Again, we don't really know anything for sure, but I think it's worth theorizing about. We'll know more once we can look at her voice lines on PBE.

AceGeo (NA)
: So, I just skimmed through your wall of text and got enough info. You pretend to not know what I'm talking about, and then go on a rant about that. The rest is you talking about something completely unrelated. I ain't trying to poke an angry bear, I was simply trying to show you a different point of view. Hope your day is good.
You came to my thread and posted a comment presenting an opposing viewpoint. Am I supposed to _not_ think you’re trying to refute me? Also, it sounds to me like _you_ were being the off-topic one. I basically gave the long version of my post, so if you were talking about something different, then I don’t know why you’re acting high and mighty while you were the one changing the subject. Either that or you weren’t thorough enough with your “skimming” and made assumptions that would’ve been obviously wrong had you taken the time to read it. Having said that, I can’t know what happened due to your extremely vague explanation. If you intend to continue this conversation, it would be prudent for you to explain yourself a bit more in-depth than just saying that I misunderstood. As a side note (i. e. it’s irrelevant to what we’re talking about, but I thought I’d mention it), “hope your day is good” comes off as patronizing when you’re trying to refute someone. I can see why you still haven’t gotten the point of my thread if this is your level of self-awareness. I’m not upset or anything, but it made me cringe a little at how you went out of your way to end your comment so unfittingly.

: UPVATE IF YOU WANT BANS IN ARAM RETURNED
It has already been stated many times across numerous threads that "upvote if X" posts are not okay on these Boards. If you want to have constructive discussion, you can just as easily do it with only a poll. Also, it is clearly stated in the Boards Universal Rules that resurrecting old posts is against the rules. The mods already had plenty of reasons to lock the last one and I expect that they will do the same to yours in due time.

: UPVATE IF YOU WANT BANS IN ARAM RETURNED 2.0
It has already been stated _many_ times across _numerous_ threads that "upvote if X" posts are not okay on these Boards. If you want to have constructive discussion, you can just as easily do it with only a poll. Also, it is clearly stated in the Boards Universal Rules that resurrecting old posts is against the rules. Also, can you stop spreading the bullshit that Riot's trying to silence you.? Yeah, sure, Riot is hell-bent on going after you in particular and not any of the thousands of people responsible for making sure that 90% of Boards posts are complaints.
: so you prefer being an asshole instead of being nice. good to know.
I prefer silence over unnecessary confrontation. Quit putting words in my mouth and try to think twice before you make an argument; it's obvious that you didn't in this situation.
: What if it’s a normal game and they’re obviously new? I feel like that’s going to only make the community less toxic instead of more
Well, I imagine a new player would be far more open-minded, but if it’s a Ranked game and/or you know they’ve been around a good bit because of their level (thank you, new loading screen), it might just seem to them like you’re pointing out the their mistakes to mess with them. They probably know what to expect from the community in terms of toxicity, so in that emotionally charged state, they’ll likely interpret such a small and innocent comment as mocking them.
AceGeo (NA)
: This kinda sounds like someone drowning, someone else trying to save them, but the person drowning is too prideful to take their hand. Person drowning then dies.
Not in the slightest. For one thing, it’s a competitive environment, so unless it’s a drowning competition, your analogy completely falls through. For another, the “drowning” in this case would be losing, correct? And why am I losing? Because the enemy team is doing better than mine. Under your analogy, I don’t think it’d be a question of pride when the one offering you a hand is also the one pushing you under. Since there seems to a miscommunication, I’ll go a bit more in-depth. When you give advice to a losing enemy, no matter how nice you are about it, they don’t see someone honestly trying to help. They’re probably in a crappy mood and that coupled with their expectation of this community’s toxicity will make them see someone gloating over their loss and pointing out their mistakes when they’re being hard enough on themselves as it is. Again, it’s nobody’s fault; it’s just the last straw. I once knew a girl who constantly bottled up her feelings of stress about her schoolwork, completely ignoring any outlet for her feelings. She would do this for weeks at a time, and at the ends of those periods, some everyday frustration would happen, like maybe someone didn’t see her as she was walking across the classroom and didn’t pull in their chair to let her by. When that happened, she would begin to tear up and have to run to the bathroom and quietly ball her eyes out. That kind of thing can happen to a player over the course of just one game, what with damage being so high and early kills being so important. Obviously, people in this position need to handle their emotions better (as my friend has learned to, but that’s a story for another day), but again, that’s not the point. The point is that you shouldn’t create conflict where you can avoid it. If you had a fight in a bar with some guy and lost badly, you don’t want him to come over and critique your skills; you’re humiliated and just want to drink the pain away (both physical and mental). Again, the mature way to handle this situation would just be to give a quick thanks and walk away, but there’s no telling what a person will do when they’re emotionally charged, so the smart thing for the _winner_ to do would be to leave the other person to their own devices; they’ll probably be over it by the end of the night.

: or they can just turn off all chat if they're that sensitive. or they could get off the internet altogether
It’s not about that. I’m just trying to help people avoid unnecessary conflict. If I can do that, why shouldn’t I? A little less perceived toxicity can go a long way.

Easy as that. Am I weak minded individual, running away from reality? Then I'm going to spend as much time as possible escaping it. Some one with books(I knew guy who locked himself with dozens of books and didn't leave house for months), movies, games, alcohol or whatever. Also it's more like love/hate relationship. Like "It used to be so good BACK THEN, I'm sure it will be same, maybe next game". Addiction like this is possible, overlooked and dangerous.

You didn't just say "they're addicted"; you gave an explanation like an intelligent person. Also, you seemed to have missed the point of the post; I don't doubt that some people are addicted. They're just doing a shit job of explaining themselves. I thought that would've been clear by, y'know, reading my post.

You completely missed the point. I used those three things as examples of why people get addicted to things. The point of that was to demonstrate that people don't get addicted to things for no reason. The point of _that_ was too show that just saying "I'm addicted" isn't good enough when someone asks you why you still play the game in spite of not enjoying yourself; you have to actually explain why you're addicted in order to move the conversation forward. I didn't think I'd have to basically rephrase my entire post, but your lackluster reading skills showed that it was necessary.

Oh I see. You’re one of those people who still hasn’t gotten the memo that barely anyone actually goes on the Boards and therefore what you see here is not representative of the community as a whole. Sure, it counts for something, but it’s chump change in the face of actual statistics for the entire community.

Well, considering so many people don’t voice their opinion, you have no grounds on which to base that statement. In a matter of public opinion, you use factual statistics, not subjective feelings. I could just as easily say that I believed the majority would be against it because that’s what I felt like was true. Of course, I won’t say that because I have zero proof and doing so would make me look like an idiot that doesn’t know how arguments work.

I would REALLY love those statistics that you obviously don't have. And no, I don't mean that poll you linked which is BEYOND biased. I mean really; what did you expect from people who only went into the "Rant" sub-board to find some echo chamber they could lock themselves in? On top of that, the only reason people come to the Boards in terms of gameplay comments is to complain. Even if you tried to run that poll anywhere else on the Boards, you would NEVER be able to get reliable results. The only silent majority we're sure exists in the LoL community is the one that stays off the Boards.
