: To the people who disliked Tyler1 since back when he was banned, how do you feel about him now?
I tried watching Allstars and he was on the desk making it unbearable.

Being transphobic as shit is hilarious Reality = Transphobic. Remi some how being lauded as the first female player just takes away the achievement from women. Every pro player faces harassment and criticism. People use the harassment that they deem most effective and thats why men overwhelmingly receive the majority of physical threats vs women receiving sexual harassment.

: I'm a girl, and I'll weigh in on the discussion. Even just saying that feels like a charged statement; in general, my experiences with saying that, or seeing others say that (whether true or not), in any "serious" game have been negative. At best, people ignore it. Most of the time, they don't believe it. It's actually pretty rare to get hit on. I don't draw attention to the fact that I'm a woman, and I'm guessing most female players are the same way. The players who make a big deal about being a woman are probably faking it. Similarly, there are more female players than you think, you just don't know it. I can't exactly speak for most women, as I've long since accepted that I'm out of the norm. But from my observations, most women my age (early-to-mid 20s) are more socially-driven and emotionally-driven. Obviously, not all women are the same, but demographics do have tendencies. It's not that they lack the skill or potential to reach a pro level, it's more that they lack a reason to devote so much time to it. Let's take a game like Undertale for example. An excellent game, it's attracted a community of both male and female players, because of its story. Despite the fact that overall, there are less female gamers than male gamers, the "community" does seem to be mostly female. If I had to guess, I'd guess that overall, more male players have played it than female. The difference here is that female players (and females in general) are attracted to the idea of sharing experiences. It SEEMS like there are more female players because they're the ones talking about their experience. They take what is a solo experience, and make it a community thing. They want to share with others. Also supporting this is the fact that a game like Second Life, for example, is mainly female. It's no gameplay and all socializing. In a game like League, that doesn't work out quite as well. First off, it's certainly not an emotional experience (until you get very emotional at your 5th loss in a row in SoloQ). Typing all the time is actively hurtful to your ability to play effectively. And most social interaction becomes negative very quickly. Characters tend to not be very deep, which is also a large draw for women in games; many of us like to imagine the interpersonal relationships (see: shipping) and generally fangirling over the characters we like. There's a lot less of that in League. Even with more expanded lore, it's not an environment well suited to such things. I'm an outlier for women, but I do express some of these same tendencies and preferences. And honestly, I have little interest in ranking. I enjoy playing the game, but I mostly play normals (except recently; rushing to Gold for Victorious Orianna). I spend plenty of time playing the game, but I have little interest in trying to get as far as I can, to measure myself against others. I do strive to improve because I want to, despite playing fairly casually, but I imagine most women wouldn't feel like they had much reason to keep pushing themselves to improve at League over other things. As for the discussion that female players prefer female champs: I'm an Anivia main, but I also love Kayn, Rengar, Gnar, Hecarim, Aurelion Sol, and plenty others. I think I mostly play male characters, actually. But most of that comes from the fact that I'm a furry. I generally prefer animal or anthropomorphic characters in terms of design. When I look through the list of characters, the more non-human ones draw my attention. Among the more human characters, I feel like I don't have much preference. So I can't really speak much on gender bias.
This is basically human nature as we know it. Women are attracted to people. Men are attracted to mechanical things. Pretty much explains most of the industries with large gender inequality % wise.

Season one has never counted. A win here will be the first real win for the west.

Pretty much wrote em off after the first part of draft when they took Lis instead of Lucian. Their draft was trash and it seemed like Jensen was terrified. Couple Koreans gonna eat FNC alive tho in the final.
: Prediction: Finals will be Afreeca vs KT Rolster
If they have separate brackets it will be likely. AFS may falter though. KT looking to be champs.
: Make Fun Of C9 Again. "NA LUL" again.
It's even more impressive that C9 made it out with Sneaky's consistently weak performances.

: Mods are trying to kill the discussion about Riot's planned SJW brainwashing
Lets break this down correctly. Riot has an in-group culture that made certain people feel as thought they did not need to act with professionalism. Riot takes steps they believe will help remedy this culture. The good: They mention meritocracy as a driving factor. The in-group culture may have been interfering with merit based decisions. The bad: Hiring consultants on diversity. This may not be as bad as it seems. If they were hiring 'implicit bias' consultants it would be a large red flag. I didn't see anything in the release that mentioned the companies they were looking to hire. I only looked at it once, so if anyone saw otherwise let me know.
: Unlock all champions for ARAM
They could just give people who own all champs bonuses in ARAM such as an +1 max rolls or getting a roll every match if you are not at max.
: How does a deep neckline = hyper-sexualized?
Sexuality gives women an upper hand when dealing with straight males. Why wouldn't the host and symbiotic organism use this to their advantage? Get over it.
: ARAM - Queue Dodge Timer
My biggest issues is there is no reason for me to not get a full reroll after every game. I own every champion so those rerolls actually matter. Also, perm ban Teemo that cancerous little shit.
: Icon/Text Slider
Just came here to mention the same thing. I preferred the words myself vs the icons for general ease. The option would be appreciated.

But it isn't something we should ashame and disown people for contemplating or carrying out. Its just disrespectful to their decisions. I don't think I got my point across clearly. Mentally strong people do not kill themselves. The path taken to the level of mental weakness it takes to end your own life doesn't matter to my general point. I would never disown someone I care about because they are having these issues. I sure in the hell would not respect their decision especially if I knew they were. I would commit them and hopefully get them the help they need.

The only people with such mindsets are those who've never been through pain, stress or general depression. Saying "Suicide is for the Mentally Weak" Is a lie used to help try to enforce the idea that "You are better than this", A term that can be seen as both encouragement for those that have Yet to go through such pain, But also a great bit of dismay to those who were contemplating it, with heavy leniency towards the thought. Also under such mindset, Those who have PTSD and Depression are seen as weak, Yet most PTSD is caused by Severe trauma, And Depression is something that everyone is bound to let set into their minds Sooner or Later.

Its not a problem that can be fixed, Its a constant that cant change, And in the end, Is something we should accept happens, And accept the choices of those that make such decisions.

: C9 Appreciation
Hopefully C9 is feeling utter shame at that draft in game 5 right now. How do you appreciate a team that throws game 5 at worlds? You dont. You ridicule them and make sure they know they fucked up hard and let down everyone that wanted them to win. No appreciation when they made an amateur mistake at a pro tourney.
: Stereotypical NA Fans
That game 5 draft was shameful. If they took galio in the first round I wouldnt have a problem but they gave WE the best team available. They should be ashamed. C9 is the only NA I've ever enjoyed watching until now but why care about a team that does nothing but choke when it counts?
: In all seriousness, did C9 get paid off?
Hopefully they got paid off. If they didnt then thats the most shameful daft phase I've ever seen in worlds play. They should be ashamed either way

I like seeing the best in a final. If SKT is the best they will win again. Not going rank em anywhere but #1 until I see them actually lose a best of at worlds.

Same everything except I'm going with SKT. I need to see them lose worlds before I bet on anyone else.
