> How can someone not notice mistakes like that to begin with??? especially the artist when they literally spend hours looking at the same picture {{sticker:sg-lux-2}} That's the problem. If you stare at something long enough you stop seeing mistakes. It's why a common piece of advice is to walk away from a project and come back to it with fresh eyes before you call it complete. Source- am artist. Can confirm dumb things make it through editing phase.
: Finally, some good looking 2D boys - Aphelios is SO HOT
I'm going to upvote because I agree with the concept of a male character potentially created for the female gaze. A lot of men in video games don't understand the difference between - a male power fantasy that just happens to be attractive to women and - a character actually designed with the female gaze in mind. Judging from the splash, I'm not sold on Aphelios. But I'll point out that Vladimir/Swain and Darius are my League crushes. I have a clear type. (It's less about facial features and more about personality. I _love_ a man that takes charge. )
: you play video games for entertainment not for randoms and their opinions think about that for a second
So play single player games. If you're playing a multiplayer game, you're accepting the responsibility of potentially letting other people down. > think about that for a second The amount of entitlement and inconsideration from you. I'm speechless.

Sure it's 'their time' but what about their teammates? So their time just gets wasted?
: The entire season we've been listening to the same login screen
I was beyond disappointed when Sylas didn't get his own animated login screen. The login screens and accompanying music for each champion or legendary skin has always been iconic to League. I guess now they put out so many legendary skins so often that it'd be a massive task to make new assets for every one, but champions should still get them imo.
: Victorious Aatrox looks like GARBAGE
I think the spell effects are gorgeous, but the model is severely lacking.
: The world is going "Dark Mode", Why is Riot going the Opposite way?
The theme of Worlds this year seems to be marbled white and gold. I understand the colour scheme for now, but I'm really hoping they don't stick with it always for their game launcher. The League client itself is a darker hue, the website forum we're on right now is dark. I think they know better but just want to flaunt Worlds themes.

They can't control if players just make new accounts, and especially not if they buy their favourite skins again. I see, thats good that it helped him quit. I do have to agree to disagree as well. Yeah being banned is supposed to be a punishment but no business does something that loses them revenue. Lets put this in perspective. If Riot games never banned anyone and everyone that created an account keeps the same account and never creates a new one. They will buy all the skins they like/want and then riot loses revenue because over time that same player wont buy new skins lol. If someone mains Zed and buy all the Zed skins, they wont buy another skin until another Zed skin comes out. So lets say they are toxic as fuck and get banned... they will most likely come back and repurchase all their Zed skins that they previously lost due to being banned. Now lets produce this is in larger scale... The banning system and account locking system. Lets do some quick math, if the statistic that puts out that only ".006" of players get banned (which is complete bullshit) out of 8 million concurrent players, that means only 48,000 people get perma banned. 48,000 players lets say that 48,000 players spend on average $500 on league which is being pretty conservative considering ive read a lot of stuff saying people have spent over $1,000 on this game. That means that riot has made $24,000,000 in microtransactions off of 48,000 players theoretically. Lets say only 50% of these players return to league and make another account, they will probably spend another $500 on the game which means 24,000 players return and spend on average $500 each again. That makes riot an additional $12,000,000. Riot wins. According to articles online, riot made over $1 billion dollars in revenue alone from microtransactions. Its pretty genius business model. Free to play game, but hey buy this awesome skin that does nothing for you but makes you feel good! Then you curse someone out because they are being a dick head and then boom banned! Hey you can always make another account... and dont forget to purchase all your favorite skins again xDDD
> ...If someone mains Zed and buy all the Zed skins, they wont buy another skin until another Zed skin comes out. So lets say they are toxic as fuck and get banned... they will most likely come back and repurchase all their Zed skins that they previously lost due to being banned..... Unless their toxicity drove someone to quit. Say someone that routinely purchased skins for a number of champions they enjoy. That player had such a negative experience with so many trolls that they no longer want to play. Riot loses THEIR revenue, of someone that possibly buys 3-4 skins every month, as opposed to that toxic player only purchasing every Zed skin maybe twice in total (once for the original account, once for their second after the initial ban.) Regardless, this is all speculation considering we don't have the actual data or numbers. But I _do_ remember Riot mentioning potential profit from an otherwise happy player being higher than a banned player simply repurchasing skins. I'll reiterate- I think 'Riot FORCES banned accounts so they'll potentially buy skins again!' is a dumb argument. Agree to disagree.
: I think the real thing we need people to share is how much money people have spent since Riot banned their original account. Did you buy your favourite skin again? We, need to once and for all prove that the "permanent" ban system is just another profit driver for Riot. If permanent bans actually caused Riot to lose money (through players actually leaving), Riot wouldnt do it, but they know a large portion of banned players will continue to make another acc and spend more money. Permanent bans are just another shady business tactic employed by Riot.
> Permanent bans are just another shady business tactic employed by Riot. My boyfriend was incredibly toxic ingame, even towards me. He was banned years ago, and he's never come back to the game. Obviously everyone is different- being banned was the push he needed to quit, while for others they genuinely enjoy the game but simply can't stop themselves from being assholes. I think the argument that banning toxic accounts drives profits is an absurd one. It's supposed to be a punishment- either you treat your fellow players like human beings, or you lose your account, and everything you've earned or spent. They can't control if players just make new accounts, and especially not if they buy their favourite skins again.

My boyfriend drove for Domino's for some time, and while I don't know the exact details... He made at least 10$ an hour (fast food makes a lot by default, at least in our state) and was paid something like a dollar per mile. The math equaled to him getting more as payment than he paid in gas. AND he kept tips on top of it. What your boss is doing sounds highly illegal- but it may depend on your state labour laws concerning delivery positions. I would look into it, or consider employment elsewhere.

I wanted Lifebloom Lissandra for a long time. Her ult would be a rose garden other abilities would have flower or vine motifs.
: How many skins have you bought vs. how many skins do you have?
I own 109 skins. 8 of them were Hextech unlocks. 2 are ranked rewards. 22 are gifts from friends or Riot promotions (remember when they gave mystery skins to people that hadn't been punished that season as a reward?) As a note, I don't generally buy Hextech boxes, nor do I reroll what I've gotten for free into new skins. I have a TON of skin shards I could unlock but I don't because I either don't play the champion or don't like the skin. I also used to feel like I _had_ to buy a skin for a champion if I played them, hence why I own Sanguine Garen and Sherwood Forest Ashe. So a good number of the skins I did buy with my own money are the cheap ones from way back. These days I only buy skins that I consider high quality and actually really like.

You know what's stopping you from turning the block off? _Self control_. So why not channel that required self control into simply being a better person in the first place?

I was using High Noon Thresh in a game recently and I noticed only his 'melee' range auto sounds were playing. Going to full auto range did not play the whip crack. I assumed it was isolated to the skin, but perhaps not.

Larriet (NA)
: I wanted to say that your feeling that 750 is a better discount price is totally valid. Historically, both 750 *and* 975 skins have given us a new model/splash with no new animations or VFX/SFX, so I personally think either works but it's good that you're making your feelings known right away & I've been a lot of people agreeing with you. I'd be pumped if they decided to make it cheaper, since one of my mains is getting one of them.
In recent years, 750 skins have shifted to being model changes only, and 975 skins have at least some asset of their SFX changed (new releases, not old skins being updated to match this trend.) As I said in my first post (and this is important): These skins are cute, but I would feel cheated if I bought what is only a model change for a 975 skin price, having _already_ bought the 1350 skin with the SFX changes.
Sukishoo (NA)
: But you havent seen the full skins yet just a small teaser, im sure they will have their own variants on the spells as well. Its not like they just left the skins 100% the same with different clothes on, then that would be waste.
> But you havent seen the full skins yet just a small teaser, im sure they will have their own variants on the spells as well. Its not like they just left the skins 100% the same with different clothes on, then that would be waste. Per Surr@20: 'The Pajama Guardians bring all new models and textures as well as a new group splash. ' Doesn't mention VFX or SFX. I don't ever buy skins just for the splash art soooo that leaves just the model update. Which is 750 rp. Yet they're being brought down to 945 RP per: 'They will be priced at 1350 RP, but we want to reward the players who already own the original Star Guardian skins: Players who already own the original Star Guardian skin for a specific champion get a 30% discount on the corresponding Pajama Guardian variant' --- You can keep trying to tell me that 'nono they're not a waste of your money!' all you want, but in the end it's my wallet, and my opinion.
: why is there no rp sales?
I used to buy 100-200$ worth of Riot Points when you could get something like twice the amount of RP for the same money. Shame they stopped doing it.
: DON'T LET PEOPLE ACCEPT THIS ROBBERY!
This is exactly what I mean when I say 'an insult to your customers'. I don't mind buying things, I don't mind spending money on companies I enjoy, but I do _not_ like this blatant insult being shoved in my face.
Sukishoo (NA)
: 750s offer literally nothing though. Most all of them are just a new model, these are still skins with new animations, effects and sounds even if they are using some assets of the original design.
But if you own the original SG skins and decide to buy the Pajama variant, you're paying over 900 RP for what is essentially a model change. (Because you get a discount for purchasing a variant.) I already own the spell effects in the original. Come on.
: Yeah the Kaisa voice wasnt even heard much. If it was in there it sounded so much like the other 3. Though this is partially due to the fact that it was literally a group of 3 women singing.... so someone had to be left out. Honestly with 3 women as the singers it would have been much better with 3 champs, or atleast given Kaisa a good dance number to add in there besides as... as you said... filler material. Yeah the dashing and leaving the echos of her energy is a cool effect and all with dodging the car, but it would have also been just as good with Ahri or Akali dodging the car (if akali did it, she would be throwing a paint can that writes a message or some cool icon possibly? Or as i said, just given her a cool dance solo. Something to earn the presitgious skin. I assume they will make another video eventually with them, so i hope they give her some show time.

Remus Wins (EUNE)
: 9 new skins
The SG Pajama skins are cute but they're essentially 750 model change skins if you already own the original 'variant'. They absolutely should not be as expensive as 900 RP even if you're getting a discount for having the original. This is what people mean when we say 'insulting cash grab'. I'm so excited to see the splash art for the Coven skins though.

It all boils down to _do something. _ Either follow your laner for a countergank or shove your lane to turret. Stop sitting in the middle of your lane twiddling your thumbs.
: Someone asked a player why they didn’t ban
They probably get asked that a lot. It's frustrating to be constantly asked why you do or do not do things. I'm not excusing their behavior, but sometimes you just want to do things your way without having to constantly defend your decisions.

Bolded for truth. I know it sucks, but venting about a few people doing it doesn't change the hundreds of other guys that do it. They see anything that even remotely hints that you may be female, they will hunt you down. I'm female but my name sounds masculine to most people, and I typically equip 'tougher' icons (don't mind today, I'm in spooky mode). This also extends to other social media too- my Discord icon was Darius for a long time. So I get left alone. But if I mention my actual gender, the attention comes in droves. (Like any time I post in a threat mentioning gender... I refuse to hide this fact about me. It should be regarded as just another part of me, like hair colour.) I'm not trying to excuse their behavior, but this is the kind of thing that will never go away. The faster you learn to not let it bother you, the better you will be. That said, I've got a pretty damn good filter for people that are genuinely interested in me as a person, and those that are just hoping I'll send them nudes because of this.
: Riot - Please Stop. People HATE having to get content through Youtube and Twitch
I should be able to buy whatever I want directly without having to purchase bundles locked with a bunch of other crap I _don't_ want. I do not gamble, I do not buy things I do not want. Instead of getting a little of my money by just selling me the one thing I want because they hope I'll be stupid enough to buy a lot more for the one thing, they get zero money. I'll reiterate; I want to buy the things I want _in game_ without having to meet some sort of separate criteria.

EVERYTHING about this is what helped me survive my mother's wrath. She grew up on Atari, and bought the Playstation and Gameboys when they first came out for her own benefit as well as mine. Taking a step up from that it wasn't super difficult to explain internet connectivity and the concept of multiplayer games to her. Making sure all my chores were done _before_ I started playing, and also letting her know I was about to begin a gaming session, went a long way in earning my playtime. She was more than happy to let me play provided anything she needed done _got done_. (I realize some parents are much more strict than mine, but I was an only child and my mother was a busy woman. Anything that kept me occupied and out of trouble was welcome.)

I've noticed you haven't had to equip icons for a while to get event missions done like this for a while.

Seems they listened. So you would think they would know better than to implement these types of missions in the first place.

Onward... The odds that you will see these players again is slim to none, at least in lower ELO. My recommendation is make heavy use of the ignore and mute buttons. No it doesn't solve the problems, but if you mute the moment someone starts making comments about your username or champion choices being feminine, and you actually IGNORE them, it often helps. Don't add fuel to the fire, and don't feed the trolls.

: Riot's ever increasing pricing scheme on icons & borders is silly
I actually want the icons. But I don't play the champions, so I won't be buying the skins. So now instead of getting just 250 RP for an icon, they get.. no RP. Cool.
: Learn to ping and stop pushing the blame
I had someone recently that pinged once, and two minutes later their laner shows up in our lane. _Two minutes._ When we asked why she didn't issue more MIA pings, she said 'I don't want to run out of pings.' Alerting your teammates to potential threats > whatever 'running out of pings' means (I know there's a limit to how many pings can be given but come on. Worried about running out???)
: This "one chroma requires you buy a bundle" bullshit needs to stop
I really wanted the gemstone drink icon for the Summer event but was unwilling to buy a massive bundle full of things I don't need or want. So instead of getting 5$ so I could buy a 200 RP icon, they got no money at all. Because I wasn't about to plop 50$ down for that bundle.
