: Bring Us Your Bugs!! Celebrating 10 Years of LoL
Whenever there's a patch or update, the option to hide the preset runepages get reset. It's pretty annoying even though it's a minor thing.
: Patch 9.15 notes
That goddamn ugly batman Jinx skin that nobody liked is going live without any changes whatsoever. Awesome.

: I want to take a minute to answer this from my perspective. First of all our intentions of doing less VGUs and more New Champs was actually based on caring for the playerbase as well as from player feedback we have gotten over the years as we have done New Champs and VGUs. Let me go into a bit more detail though. First when I said less VGUs I didnt mean we would stop doing them, I just meant we would slow down. Expect to still see plenty of VGUs in the future, just not as many as we have been doing last year. The reason why I feel that his is coming from a caring place is this. There are many players that share your perspective, that they want their main updated, and changed. But you have to understand there are also many other players that love their Champion, and find it very frustrating when they are updated even if many other players think the update makes them way better. We have to care about these players as well, and whenever we do VGUs we also cause a lot of disruption and frustration from players over their Champion being changed. New Champions generally don't cause this player pain. Last year we actually saw a lot higher player frustration over change, partly due to how many old Champions we were updating and changing, with many older players feeling alienated by the changes. At this point, after Morde, many of the Champions we would consider for a VGU have much higher players bases then the Champions we were doing VGUs on in the past. This isn't to say there isn't value in doing them, but if we were doing them at the rate we were doing them last year, on Champions with bigger player bases, then that is many more players that would feel frustrated or alienated by the changes, even if many other players like them. This isn't to say we want to stop doing them as we feel there is value in the game feeling modern and up to date, which means we value updating the things that are getting old and dated. The Champions on the list just aren't as dated as some of the ones we did over the last couple years, and as a result the value in updating them isn't as high, and also has a higher disruption and player pain cost since the Champions have bigger player bases.
Have you guys considered that the problem might not be the fact that the update happens so much as how much change the updates entail? Maybe the answer is not to stop updates, but rather just make updates a lot more conservative. Approach champion updates with the motto "Change only what absolutely needs to be changed" instead of "Keep only what absolutely needs to be kept". I haven't seen anybody complain about Morgana's update, for instance.
: Even don't dare rework old champion, better delete them if they have less player base, and you don't care about your community,{{champion:106}}
Look at Galio. Deleting them IS what reworking means 9 times our of 10. Except they're replacing them with a brand new champion of the same name at the same time as they delete the old one.
: Be happy your champions don't get reworked. All riot does is destroy what you enjoy about them.
I wish I could go back to the time before Akali was reworked.
: Co-op vs AI difficulty
It's pretty misleading to have the difficulties be Intro, Beginner and Intermediate. Intermediate implies there are levels higher than it, and there actually aren't.
: Think they’ll give me some credit??? XD
If you google "skin wishlist" you'll see people have been requesting Riot to implement that for years already. Amazing they haven't done it already considering it would be something that would probably increase their skins sale, but that's Riot for you.
: Uh, riot, explain?
Is this the "cheat engine" issue or a new one?
: Your Shop Returns
This was the first time all my offers interested me, so kudos to that. I might actually buy all if them. That said the % discounts were rather meh, 3 50% offers, 2 60% and 1 20%.

Cute or sexy champions, at least for the female champions. Riot's vision of "what sells" and "what's popular" is clouded by its toxic patriarchy. Cute white girls will sell to men because they always will. what about the female playerbase? Which, by the way, more women are gamers than men nowadays anyway. That's a HUGE potential, untapped market (aka money) that Rito is just ignoring.
Why do you keep talking like you speak for all women and know what every woman wants? Just because you have your tastes doesn't mean everyone without an Y chromosome subscribes to it. Your tastes are yours and yours alone, not mine or every woman out there. Keep that kind of lunacy to your Hillary 2020 rallies, please.

: Chat restrictions work in a good sense being that it's based off of frequent reports. Say you're toxic 3/10 games, you'll most likely to get chat restricted if someone reported you in those 3. The reason why this is so awesome is because of how many accounts are being bought recently due to the season ending, so toxic people who get banned literally wasted their money sense they can't get their end of season awards. AKA, you can buy a level 200 account with honor level 5, but if you're frequently toxic in a span of 3-4 games in a row because you havn't played on that account often, you'll get chat restricted and drop straight to honor level 1.
>Say you're toxic 3/10 games, you'll most likely to get chat restricted if someone reported you in those 3. You only get punished when people report you, so unless I'm missing something here isn't this kind of obvious?

: If inters aren't as banned as toxic people, then I really don't care for the system. A mute button exists. I see insults as a distraction and mute accordingly. I don't have to be offended to do so. However inters make the game nearly impossible to win and since Rito's algorithm doesn't help punish them, then it's an insanely flawed system. But hey, go awf sis.
A good deal of inters are actually people who got flamed for a bad play an are now trying to get back at the people who flamed. Just yesterday I had a game where the midlane got camped and asked for a counter gank, and the jungler said something along the lines of "stfu you're inting". Then the midlane proceeded to actually int "to show what inting really is". I'm not saying that's the only reason people int, but I'd say it's more often that people int after being flamed than getting flamed after inting (as in actually inting, not just having a bad game).

Name one other champion that has 48 chromas. You want to get 48 chromas, you pay the price for 48 chromas. You're literally complaining about having more content available to you.
: Yeah, fair point. Wish there was a mode where you could do offmeta stuff tho, without any report risks.
Usually that's blind pick. Nobody really cares what you pick in blinds and nobody uses blinds as practice.
Aamano (NA)
: which has no impact whatsoever when you're standing directly next to them attacking them. which is the entire point of my scenario lol it was just an opinion i had i know its not going to get any traction
She already loses a huge chunk of the damage by doing a snap Q. Deciding when it's better to charge the Q for the greater damage or do a snap Q for an immediate CC is part of the skill in playing her.
: Does anyone remember or miss the good old days when people played offmeta stuff in normals?
>I know this could be considered trolling in a way, but people take this game too seriously, and forgot the aspect of having fun while playing it. If it doesn't work at all, you learn and you move on, no need to flame each other for it because you wanted to try something like this in a normal game mode, where you don't risk your teams lp points. The problem is, a lot of people use normals to practice for ranked. So when someone decides to play some obviously off-meta thing, they get angry at having to waste 20-30 mins on something that is ultimately not gonna teach them much about actual ranked. Try looking through the other side's perspective, too.

: You can't; they're a package deal. If you craft the icon and don't want the border, you should contact support and they might be able to remove it for you! You're still "paying" tokens for the birder though, which sucks. Which one were you looking to craft?
I don't mind the price, I really just don't want the borders. I think they kinda mess up the card's art. I'm writting a support ticket right now to ask if they'll remove it if I get it. I really want the Jinx icon, but if support can't remove the border I'll just have to skip it.
: Learn More: Odyssey
So, can you craft the icon without the border? I kinda dislike borders.

Why aren't the emote sales listed in these?
: It may not be against the rules, but it is still a dick move, and it's not fair, this whole topic is mainly fair vs. not fair Smurfing will never be punishable, and neither will duoing with a smurf. -EDIT, adding a picture- https://image.ibb.co/eekEVK/screenshot_20180905_154554.png Yes, this is old. Yes, Riot knows about smurfing. No they don't care. Yes, there is a smiley face at the end of his sentence.
I'm just stating how it is, no point in shooting the messenger. Downvoting me won't make the rules change.

Thresh is one of the best designed champs in the game. Zyra is annoying but still fine and even Yasuo is ok. Yasuo is actually hard to play, I tried him for a bit he is not easy, the problem is crits in general. Zoe is dumb and needs some changes and Darius is honestly the champion I hate most in league except for maybe akali Yasuo Zoe and Darius feel bad to play aginst and bs at times but Darius is the only on whose kit is truly toxic and stupid
Kalista has a literal 100% banrate in pro games whenever she's viable and is often cited as the single most problematic champion ever. There was a reason why her average winrate throughout most of season 6 was deliberately kept at 35%. https://realsport101.com/news/sports/esports/league-of-legends/worlds-2017-kalistas-100-ban-rate/ https://www.invenglobal.com/articles/3146/from-100-ban-rate-to-100-win-rate-the-champions-of-league-worlds-2017-week-1
: Why smurfing should be punishable... and why it isn't
I just want to mention, boosting by itself isn't actually against the rules. Accounting sharing is. So if you give out your password for someone else to play your ranked games for you, then you're breaking the rules. But if you're just duo-queueing with a smurf, then it's not. Even if you paid for it, it's still not against the rules.
Rioter Comments
: Hmm, so basically it isn't discriminatory if it is against men instead of women, right? Sure I know yall are desperate to fix the major issues plaguing women in the company but this is not a valid excuse for something like this at all.
If they're doing this to try and make up for Fartgate, it backfired hilariously.

: lulz. Ziggs has been laning bot since Season 6. So has Morde. Darius has been viable. I've Bot Ahri'd. All the champs like Brand and Fiddler were already down there. Adcs lost 2 AD early game in exchange for AD growth. If 2 AD is the difference between laning and not laning, you have problems. Gutted. What a drama queen.
Mordekaiser has never been viable botlane even though his whole kit revolved around being botlane, so you couldn't have gotten a worse example if you tried. People preferred to take him toplane even though it meant losing on the exp inflation and the dragon ghost, that should tell you how much he sucked botlane. You could find examples of people playing weird things since ever, doesn't mean those things were ever viable. Also you're ignoring how the items those ADCs relied were deliberately gutted early, with IE being given a deliberate awkward buildpath specifically for this reason. An ADC needs to farm before backing for longer and the items they do purchase offer less of a powerspike to booth. And if they are forced to back before having the that higher amount of gold they have to go back to lane with less stats than before, which makes having a bad early game even worse. Hence why their winrates dropped all across the board.
Azadethe (NA)
: You do realize all these champs that are now migrating into bot.... were always viable bot.... They just didn't like dealing with the hassle.
They were never viable bot because before the crit rework ADCs were strong enough to keep them out. Early ADC damage output has been completely gutted, which is why even being ranged no longer gives them an advantage.

No, the problem is that Riot has been creating ADCs balanced around being in a lane with a support for years so now they have nowhere to go because they have an useless early game, unreliable self peel and scale exclusively out of items. If Riot wanted to unlock botlane for everyone then they shouldn't have created a whole class locked down to it.

: plz find some ssort of way to balance shen. His winrate is super low rn (44-48% depending on region/elo). I've seen people proposing revertinng the q but the problem is he then has zero damage. THe thing that gave him damage in his previous iteration was the passive in tandem with q, but only q would give him pretty much zero damage,
Why are you talking about Shen's balance in a thread announcing skin sales?
: Diana was confirmed to've been originally intended to be a lesbian by one of the people who had worked on her. I forget who said it, but it showed up on Twitter.
You're thinking of this: twitter.com/Iron_Stylus/status/850598651281907713?p=v Though tbf Ironstylus just said he wanted to make her lesbian, but apparently he was vetoed on it. So it's no confirmation that she actually is.

: Oh hi it me. Am interested in getting Nid back into a solo lane. Seems high value if we can achieve it given her gameplay and thematics. The issue I'm running into is that her current kit doesn't seem to support lane play without a number of game health risks or risks of making her jungle bonkers. As a result I expect getting lane Nidalee back would take a number of larger mechanical shifts on the champion as opposed to simple numbers changes. This is doable, but would take time (Similar scope to the work we did on Rengar). Was thinking of doing some exploratory work on her once I wrap up work on my current VGU. No promises however, the exploration could end up yielding nothing of value (Would only make changes if we were confident Lane Nid AND jungle Nid were being made better).

Normals mmr is a mess and you often get matched wit people 2 whole elos above you, to say nothing of it being infested with premades. Ranked is a legit far more pleasurable experience over all with less trolling and fairer matchups. I can totally understand people who don't care about theirs stats only playing ranked given how screwed up normals are.

Oh I see, well then. Her spell rotations are going to be available more often, which will be quite useful. Honestly I'm kind of excited to try lane Vi again if these changes hit live. And the W changes only affect low rank Ws, if you max it like you should do anyways then you won't feel the hit as much. Plus E gives aoe damage, being up more often will help with clearing. 2. win rate alone is not good reasoning, you're going to have to do better than that. 3. Where exactly was this said? Because I don't recall seeing it anywhere. _Edit: Wow just gonna drop a downvote on me and anyone who agrees with me, and not respond to the points I made.

I was thinking the same thing. Putting 2 points in Q then maxing W should make her pretty good toplane against tanks and a few bruisers. On of her main issues in lane were mana problems so it's good that they're addressing that.
