: What’s New in Ranked 2019
i just want to say to the team... Mrs. Jessica Nam. We just want URF mode, no AURF, AVUSw/etheFURF, people just want to pick their champions and play them without getting screwed over like ARAM when choosing their champion. I see it on the Forums all the time.
: Hey Sinwrath, we totally feel like you do in terms of how much we need to (and want to) update our old champs. The potential of these characters to be awesome is really high. Just in terms of designers on the champion update team, this year we are growing from 4 to 6, and at the same time I think (hope) we're getting better at what we do. We don't have any set timelines like "expect 1 update a patch," but we will release as many high quality updates as we can this year (both big and small). We are in progress on a bunch of the champs you have listed above, and the work is looking very promising so far. That said, we don't have any plans to slow down new champion releases. IMO new champs are part of the lifeblood of what keeps League fresh and evolving. 2015 is gonna be a good one.

: you're allowed to drop the F bomb as much as you like in chat. You can't get reported solely for using bad language. You've clearly amassed reports from things that are actually reportable, i.e. the boxes that you can tick when you report someone. If you had a 14 day chat ban you've already been warned/ chat muted. You clearly have a problem. I cuss all the time in games and haven't had a single punishment in the 3 years I've been playing League. Next
i dont think thats right
: People like you make me laugh. You receive consecutive punishments for consistent bad behavior and then come to the boards to cry about how unreasonable Riot are for doing something about it. Growing pains, buddy - embrace it.
im glad you understand exactly what im talking about <=== (sarcasm) me and some friends were playing, and idk if you have very many friends you joke around with but you walk up and say "hey "F"er" and they joke back with you. bad behavior and cursing to friends about friendly things, are a totally different thing.... but i guess im wrong since riot had language filter checks or whatever

: no one gets baned for 14 days before gettign at least 2 times chat restriction, 10 games and 25 games
i actually got banned for 14 days without a chat restriction just recently
: Hmm, are you making sure the games you're getting S's in are Summoner's Rift Blind, Draft, Solo/Duo Ranked, or Flex Ranked? ARAM, Twisted Treeline, Twisted Treeline Flex, and any Rotating Gamemode aren't eligible for Mastery Tokens.
ya its been ranked, its kind of the only mode i play

id like to be able to actually pick my champ in urf. there is nothing worse than getting a bunch of champs you don't actually want to play.

a buff? no. its more of a "it should of been left alone" post

honestly man, if you spend 75 gold to place a ward down during battle with akali; you deserve to see her

: Stormrazor is an "ADC" item
its hardly an adc item. bruisers benefit from it way better, and so do assassins.

: Yeah, god forbid botlaners have to learn more than one class of champion! It's not like top has: Tanks, bruisers, mages, juggernauts, skirmishers, and occasional marksmen! It's not like jungle has: Tanks, mages, assassins, marksmen, skirmishers and occasional enchanters! It's not like mid has: Mages, assassins, tanks, enchanters, bruisers and occasional marksmen! It's not like support has: Tanks, mages, enchanters and now assassins! This is truly the worst possible thing to happen!
each adc is different dude, there isnt just "point click" auto attack. champs like ezreal use skill shots to move around and dish damage, corki is a change of both melee and long range. Kalista deems on attackspeed, where as draven builds full power and relies on catching axes while moving out of the way. there is a lot more versitility in champs as far as adc's and you obviously arent an adc main to know this. any idiot can point and click to auto attack, but the again any idiot can stand at a distance and cast spells, and if shit gets hard they can skillfully hit that R button.
: ADC Main
thats not even the point IceAYou. plus with no brainer champs like yi, xin, trundle, shyvanna, tryndamere, your point is not only salty but stupid. Generally though, its not "oh they nerfed adc's" its been done before from patch to patch, but this new meta has taken them pretty much completely out. Baron being easier to take down, scuttle being a priority point for skirmish, which an adc needs to farm instead, the ridiculous item costs and low benefit with them, plus the tower buff towards ad and the decrease in ap resistance, allowing mages to take a tower down a lot easier. The game pace is much faster if you havnt noticed and there really is no late game anymore. this keeps adcs from being able to scale. even the tanks have an easier time shit stomping an adc because Mortal reminder is worse than before, and bork has no damage to it. And even if a late game does happen, an ad carry needs to make an extra 2500 gold to be effective, throwing them further into a late late game. The 32% adc rate is probably those players like myself that enjoy playing adc's and dont want to conform into the meta because , bruisers and mages just arent interesting or fun for them. And the damage reduction on each adc, puts them even further behind. like i said its not that they nerfed adcs, its the fact that theyve been completely taken out of the game because of the conditions.

: There is likely a reasonable amount of QA and overhead that goes into this (research into the right champions/skins for chromas, overhead for picking color palettes, making everything perfect rather than scribbles, etc.), but even when including all of that stuff this is pretty damning. If it takes a complete novice less than an hour to create a chroma for a reasonably complex champion (art-wise), this becomes reeeeeally questionable. --- Math! Let's say there are five main parts to this development process: * Research * Recolor * Assessment/QA * Iteration * Release I'm going to use extremely rough numbers and probably be way off base, but I'm going to err on the side of overboard because it paints a better picture (cwutididthar). Let's assume each step of the process requires the following work: * Research - 5 people, 40 hours each * Recolor - 1 person, 8 hours * Assessment/QA - 3 people, 40 hours each * Iteration - 10 people, 40 hours each * Release - 5 people, 8 hours each This works out to a total of 768 hours, though I would be pretty surprised if a single Chroma pack took this many man-hours to complete seeing as the OP did it in half an hour. Let's also assume that everyone working on this project was paid an average of $40 an hour, or roughly an $80k salary per person. This works out to a total cost of $30,720 for each chroma pack, and assuming each chroma pack costs $5 in RP Riot requires 6,144 sales. Assuming a community of 50 million people (it's much higher by official numbers, but whatever let's make the numbers look as good as possible for Riot), this is about 0.0001% of the population, or about a tenth of the number of people in Diamond in North America. I would be very surprised if that sale percentage isn't feasible from Riot's perspective, selling six thousand units of a desirable product to a population of 50 million people really shouldn't be that difficult. TLDR, here are the numbers as per above: * 768 total man-hours for a set of chromas * $40 cost per hour * $30,720 total cost * 6,144 sales to break even --- Riot needs to make money, and I get that these cosmetics are the main source of revenue for the entire company, but it's a little concerning that either a simple recolor takes such an extraordinarily long time that it warrants this cost or the profit margin is so astronomically high.
LOL research 5 people 40 hrs??? recolor 1 person 8 hours??? iteration??? of that isnt the biggest crock of _____ ive heard in a while. Even programming that into the system as a new skin, the process shouldnt take more than an hour tops. saying 768 hours on one chroma is literally the dumbest thing ive heard in a while. what it looks like it comes down to is that either A the staff at riot has limited basic knowledge on recoloring, or B they seriously dont care, and they release one whenever an employee does a couple of them during their free time at work.
: I'm a hobby 3D designer. First off, i don't think Chromas should cost RP, i mean, most of them you have to buy the skin first anyway; plus for those higher lvl players that have been playing long enough to have every champion... those lvl up champion shards are beyond worthless. 2nd, Recoloring any aspect of a 3D model is literally the easiest thing to do, ESPECIALLY when you keep the exact same design and you're just recoloring it. 3rd, i know ive read this before on a riot forum or some sort of "to the public" hoopla, and this dude is 100% right, they literally take less than 5 minutes to put together. If it seriously is taking "days" to create a chroma skin... you guys at riot need to fire some of your lazy employess... or train them, or hire even a novice animator thats probably in his 3rd week of school instead
btw that riot add "high standards" .... guess we're not going to talk about this years sweetheart Xayah and Rakan skins???

: Why is smurfing for fun seen as dishonorable??
how do you not get why? There are players trying to improve their rank; especially silvers, to obtain gold for an exclusive skin, or even just to climb. They don't have the skill level to compete with a constant Diamond player. Yet, you're the douche bag that comes in, wrecks them, knocks them down back further into their elo hell and most of you jerks mock them or give them the GG (being a sarcastic dbag). Smurfing, plain out, isn't fair to low leveled players. You shouldn't have to be a Diamond or better quality player to advance in silver, let alone bronze. You want some fun, then play normals on your other account; dont be that jerk to step on players that are trying to climb. I'm aware riot cant exactly ban a smurf account, because of lack of proof. But, it should be a bannable offense. if you want it to be put in a different light; Imagine there is a kid. That child wants to buy a Foil Charizard because he thinks its awesome and its his favorite pokemon. His parents wont buy it for him ( he doesn't get boosted). So, he saves his allowance up ( grinding low elo) and hes about to get that Charizard he always wanted (gold+). And as he walks into the store with his eyes lit up, here you come (diamond player), Mr.Money bags adult, buy that charizard out right and maybe a box or two of the set it came out of (taking the goal away from a low elo player). well congratulations, you not only pissed of that child, but you came in with no regard or respect for what he was trying to achieve, and you F'd him over.... Which is EXACTLY what you do to lower ranking players every time you smurf into a ranked match.

nah, I usually end up in gold 5 just to get the end of season skin. but ill be silver until I decide to up in ranked. thanks

nah just sounds like you're whining baby boy

it comes from the lulu remix on youtube. It was part of the community collab
: You can't be punished for not using ingame chat, ever.
if that came from a riot employee I may have a better chance of believing that. But no my best friend was actually banned because he refused to use the ingame chat in season 4 "refusing to communicate"
: Why Am I baned? Does that really deserve a ban? Give me your honest opinion..
0/4 name is pretty good.... seriously dude, as a sarcastic, passive aggressive, douchebag, yes you should totally be banned for that. Just because you didn't throw out curse words or slander, doesn't mean you weren't more toxic. If you haven't noticed YOU'RE BEING A HUGE JERK!!!!

team up banning? I remember a while back I got ridiculously mad at a player. it was my first time playing {{champion:236}} . After my second death, he called me a feeding PoS. I remember replying "ive never actually played Lucian before" after my third misplayed death I was basically constantly trolled by this player the entire game. Ever so often another player would chime in from our team and back him up a bit. sooo cursewords and slander, about 40minutes later, I told him "dude get off your high horse and stop being such a Fn A" and things like "F you I'm new" and later I just told him to go F himself. and that was literally the last 5 minutes of the game. anyway, after the game I put in my report about that player, and soon found out that all of them were queuing together. Anyway I got banned a little while after that game, but I never saw a report of a ban on that player. And ive seen it countless times where a team will talk crap to one player and get him banned by report, just because those 3-4 players qued in together
: In a bee onesie, yes. The "oh bother..." on death might cause copyright issues, but it would be fantastic.
I doubt they have a copyright issue for those words. Silly Ole Bear.
: More terrible chroma's?
I mean battle bunny riven has a chroma. and usualy like EVERY riven player has that skin
