Ranked make me wish Riot would get DDOS for an entire week like the good old times. Back then they had to work for their community or would get shutdown for an entire week :D. PRetty much they last time I had some fun at this game (season 4)
: I wouldn't mind the forced 50% winrate through MMR balancing If the whole idea behind promo didn't expect several wins without losing streaks from high LP through the promos. It's rather contraproductive.
The point he's trying to explain (the riot bullshit special) is that you know you're a gold III player from your skills//previous seasons. At the start of every win streaks, you played with and against gold V to gold I players. But then, you reach promos and get matched with silver I and gold V players against 3 plat V and plat IV player with mid-gold ones. The problem is : you're silver II... How is that even fair. you know you're supposed to be gold II at least, but Riot's algorithm keeps you silver II for the ''sakes of the 50% winrate''. I've brought 5 accounts to gold III this year, one to plat I, but there was one account in particular where this pattern was the worst of all. For real, took me then entire year (since february) just to get to silver I, then I reached gold V in 1 promo... C'mon. That's why I don't do ranked anymore. The free shitty skin isn't worth the work anymore. Riot isn't worth my respect anymore and I'm sure tons of people think the same.

: You're forgetting something. Rank means absolutely nothing in relation to skill. It's MMR that shows your skill level, not rank, and your MMR is similar to theirs. They are probably about to get demoted out of Platinum. Most of the plats you'll get matched up with as a silver 1 are bronze kids that bought a boost anyways.

If everything is about MMR then why give rewards at the end of the season based on ranks and not MMR if they whole system doesn't work with ranks? See, that's Riot. Stupidity at it's best. A system made by rioter for silver rioters that couldn't get past silver III so they added some plat players in their team to get carried out. That's why the majority of the community has no respect for the organisation.

: Does anyone else worry the new mage will be essentially erased due to high level play?
Well Riot took the decision on focussing on the ADC this year (which means don't let mid laners take control/ supports either take their job like in last season). Pretty trying to go back to season 3 meta which was the best one in my opinion. The problem is, they didn't fixed the burst dmgs, nor balanced out all the ad carries (pretty much always those adc carries every single fucking games {{champion:145}} {{champion:236}} {{champion:18}} {{champion:110}} {{champion:498}} ) Read this small thread I've written, I've analysed a little bit how Riot balanced this season in terms of champions. As a support main, I'm horrified how Riot didn't care at all about supports players (and even forces players to play that position by filling people in) https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/bIo2aWPs-list-of-untouched-champions-in-2018-and-small-toughts-on-riot-2018-decisions

Yeah I've got some friends working in AI and tech and they all agree than Riot Games' client is the worst design in the gaming industry... Like they designed it in linux and now they're forcing it into windows without updating to the differences. It's like you'd want some steak for your dinner but you choose to cook chicken with steak spice flavoured sauce. That's Riot Games.

I mean, most people don't want him fired for taking the decision to segregate men before 2:30, it's the way he answered to the scandal by insulting his dominant consumer (95% men I believe play this?). Trust me, any major companies (unless Trump company) would immediately fire their employees who insult the main consumer, or relegate them. Honestly, I think I've finally understood what Riot games has messed up in all these years : it's like they don't have any ethical code to force their employees to sign (my company has a strict social media policy in it, why doesn't Riot has one???). Also, most ethical code are public since a lot of orders are forcing companies to adopt one... but there's no such thing in the Gaming Industries, which is why they hired a law firm to create one, last week.... It's been 9 years since the company exists c'mon guys.
: There have been several threads about the broken bot, and Riot is looking into it. Taric stands there while you kill him because he's waiting for his linked ally to approach so he can cast a spell. He will wake up when his ally approaches or when he's hit with hard CC. Rammus used to stand still to channel his Q, but he doesn't anymore. Shyvana will occasionally crash after ulting. Yasuo, Fizz, Jhin, ASol, etc. were simply broken and have been disabled. Co-op has many bugs and few features. It's basically out of warranty and unsupported.
: Daily Reminder to Hold Riot Accountable
My question : Does Riot have an ethical code they make everyone sign every year? Because any real company has some sort of ethical code all employees have to sign.

they just have to rework all of their events.

: Blitzcrank knock-up goes through Fizz E
Yeah it's there since Fizz release (season 2). Like this guy is saying below, Blitz's E mechanic is just a superslow aa's that become an ability, which means if he targeted you before you become untargetable, you'll get hit anyway (caus it counts as an aa's range ability). Same goes for Master Yi's Q, but you just cant see it and it's faster But there are very little interactions between fizz and blitz (caus theyre not popular these days) so it would be a waste of time for Riot to try to change blitz's entire E mechanic just for this single interaction. You'll have to rescript it entirely

I had been a WoW player for years and was used to waiting half-a-year for more content. Now the patches would always be big, sure, but around 3-4 months after I had done all the content I ran out of stuff to do. Doubly so for the classic "pre-expansion lull" that I'm experiencing now in WoW. (I guess it gives me an excuse to finish Pandaria cooking for a title?) League is nothing like that, however. I _never_ got bored of League (and still don't) because every two weeks there's a new toy for me. There's some balance changes to check out. Maybe a champion or a rework I'm itching to try. > > Back in the day it was even worse (better?) because Riot had a release schedule that would make the MCU blush. A new champion, every two weeks. Suffice to say, these champs were horribly balanced in many cases. People complain about Zoe these days but man, you should have been here for stuff like Release MF where her ult took up the whole lane or when Renekton had his spotlight filmed before a ton of number nerfs. But this isn't a balance post.

It wasn't a big deal 8-9~ years ago because we were young and probably in college/high school. You probably didn't work as much as you do now and maybe you didn't have, say, a family to help take care of or the quarterly report to finish in excel. You could afford for Riot to change/add massive things in the game. > > But, as the bold post says, we're older now. We don't have time. Older me now has a bit more to do in WoW because I don't shotgun all the content and there's usually enough for me to make a patch like 7.3 last quite a bit of time.

The other half of you are probably screaming at me how Riot is the worst company ever and they're idiots for ever allowing it into the game. _Yes_, it's true that not everything can be adapted to or given time to sit. However, not everything is so busted Riot needs to act as the hand of god asap. > > As we saw in Doublelift's vidoe, Pros want Riot to ease with changes. Let the game sit. Maybe a handful of hotfixes. But mostly, they want Riot hands off. Boards and the more casual community, conversely, wants Riot acting ASAP the moment something dips to a 51% win rate. This is also a sign of how the community has changed. We want _more_ changes and Riot to act _even faster_ on patches and balance changes. Pros just want the game to sit and be left alone for months on end.

Lilithh (NA)
: Matchmaking is so dogshit
Here's a simple, yet very frustrating, explanation on why you are always matched against higher ranks. The higher you get in terms of ranks, the less people there is. If you are over gold III, which isn't that hard to reach, it's less than 30% of all players playing league of legends. It should mean longer queues, but is it really happening? No! Since 2016, the ''Queues timer rework'', in order to reduce the wait for higher elos, Rito decided to match those higher players with lower players so that the waiting queue time wouldn't take 10-15 mins (talking about high plats/ high diamond mostly). The problem is, you probably have a gigantic MMR for you current rank, so the system targets your account to match with those higher ranks and reduce their waiting time. It's very unfair for you, because you can't climb the ladder as fast as those higher ranked players since it's not equal in terms of ranks. You have the same skills, same game knowledge and understanding than those higher ranks, but you cannot reach their ranks since your MMR is to high for your rank. This is what we used to call elo hell pre-2016, but Rito made it worst with their ''queues timer rework''. Honestly, I've brought 3 accounts to plat, 2 to gold II, but I just can't reach past silver II my friend's account. Every fucking time I'm in promo (and I'm talking about solo queue league), I get matched with gold II and up, even platinum players, because they are my skill levels. I can't get this account to gold because Riot targets this one account and judges it's a plat-skill level, which is fine, but shouldn't be matched with platinum players because it's a silver account. So it's quasi-impossible to reach gold for me on this account, nor my friend even though he plays on it a lot more. You are stuck in elo hell the day you finished your promos and Rito placed you in lower rank hoping to make you ''work'' for you highest ranks. Riot really created the Elo hell in 2016 (which wasn't so important back then because they had just released team ranked queue, but now nobody plays them anymore unless they're high or drunk). This is why I don't play rank anymore, I don't care of not getting a shitty skin at the end of the season. I don't feel it is worth my time anymore. I would say : ''hey create a new account so restart over'', but this doesn't work anymore. It's either you buy a ranked account, or take a long pause of ranked leagues or quit the game for a while. That's my personal decision : I shall not play until Harrowing (doom bots).
