: Not to mention that nexus blitz is basically copying other popular games. Battle royale mode? PUBG and Fortnite. Push the cart? Basically payload from TF2 or Overwatch. The concept of a MOBA with little events every so often? Heroes of the Storm.
well, hots is dead so I hope they keep the mode around
: Can we buff back Corki's AP ratio's pls?

Zouldator (EUW)
: It's been months Riot, why the actual fuck hasn't Irelia received a nerf yet????
her ult is pretty situational, and if you pick a toplane hero that comes online earlier you can just kind of Q her into farming under tower and being useless
yamacchi (NA)
: There is absolutely no need to "defend yourself" in an anonymous environment.
but my publicly visible ranked ladder oh wait riot makes that a thing thereby creating the toxicity, nevermind
: I havent had fun in a long time.
do you really want the game to get to the point where the team that facechecks baron wrong loses? It's all bad.
: ARAM is not an excuse to do deliberately troll builds.
if they unlocked all champs for aram it wouldn't be, but at this point I fully support someone running AP garen in ARAM and nuking bots
: Should AP bruisers and battle mages have a serporate stat from AP?
they should have better items, instead of a crutch passive like Vlad's
Lilithh (NA)
: What are your top 5 favorite champions and what do they say about you?
they're all women/ezreal and they say I'm a woman trapped in a man's body but cutting my dick off and taking a ton of drugs will just make the problem worse

: Teleport Nerf coming on Preseason Patch (MapleNectar twitter)
they're trying to go back to the golden days where every spell besides flash/ignite was niche. makes sense
HolyTT (EUNE)
: 1 week into this game
Hey, I started in 2017. I'd like to recommend that you could be playing twisted treeline and ARAM. There are more bots than players in every game, so you can get a ton of free S+'s , which translate to free skins! /s the game is dying don't bother
yamacchi (NA)
: Diablo Immortal is a great example of a gaming company disaster.
Riot games is a great example of a gaming company disaster. It's been almost a decade and they still ban you if they think your account has been hacked instead of having two factor, like holy shit
: Shaco should be the quintessential "trickster" champion after his rework.
don't worry, they'll probably preserve his invisibility move while making the jack in the boxes act as a mini windwall, give him a shield that refreshes when he moves, a charm, a nuke, a 3 second stun, and the clone will spawn for the original an area of invisibility/untargetability for 15 secs
: Hear me out. Instead of Perma-banning people for toxicity
permas are a relic of the past, now that the player numbers are in freefall (except for bots), they'll probably rip of DOTA again and make a low priority queue within the coming year
: Why is it that Jax is never getting nerfed??
he's kind of like Riven, if you nerf him to stop people with 1000+ games from winning, he'll be unplayable for everyone else (and he already is)
: Calling any player that defends Jax a "hashinshin fun" is not the right way to argue.Jax has been the least problematic champion for the past seasons.Only his W has been changed (+ 50 range). Half of the champions pool deal high damage early game with cheaper items.Other champions are far from simply broken unlike Jax. Your problem guys(including those players that created more topics about jax) is not if Jax is op or not.It's his kit.He is a splitpusher,got ways to escape and counter your skilled plays with his E,which it has a respected cd.
jax is like the only thing hashinshin is right about, so they're really just strengthening their argument
: Why is it that Jax is never getting nerfed??
Jax has been balanced/up since dodge runes
: Do teens not play this game anymore
only Asians and Asian Americans play it anymore edit: your downvotes mean you know I'm right
: What Happened to K/DA Kai'Sa?
probably they waited to see what champ was picked most in worlds, added it to the worlds pass, and retextured her hair?

I have never once had a bot in my ARAM games and I have over 7500. I have less than 100, I'm assuming every other fairly new account has a similar experience. Good thing you played your first ~100 games before Riot stopped banning bots
: Issue is that the system is too easy to exploit. I remember when the system was a thing and people would be toxic as hell in team chat, really nice in all chat and get honored even though they didn't deserve it. There were way less cases where I saw the person on my team was legitimately nice and got honors from the opposing team deservedly than the two-faced bs I mentioned before. Downvote me to hell
oh no they might get an extra key fragment each week before they get banned because the report system is separate
: Did they ever publicly announce that rotating game modes were being removed? All I know is that I went to play the rotated gamemode one weekend and found there was none and I haven't seen them since. It makes me play more norms and arams but the shit gets old after a couple weeks. I'm thinking about switching to an alternate game. Anyone got any suggestions?

I'm thinking about switching to an alternate game. Anyone got any suggestions? DOTA 2 has too many custom games. Turbo is pretty fun.
: AnBody think we need the weekly rotating game modes back?
ARAM and 3v3 are unplayable because there's a bot in every game, so there's really one game mode.
: AP champions have more defensive options than AD ones. What do you mean? AP Health Items: {{item:3151}} {{item:3116}} {{item:3027}} {{item:3152}} {{item:3165}} AD Health Items: {{item:3071}} {{item:3748}} {{item:3053}} {{item:3022}} Two of them are melee only so it isnt even like marksmen, the ranged AD carries, are allowed to build 50% of them. The ranged AP carries, meanwhile, are able to build any of the AP health items they want and it's fine. AP Armor Items: {{item:3157}} AD Armor items: {{item:3026}} Zhonya's can not only be partially built earlier in the game to help with hard match ups but it also gives more AP and more Armor than GA gives in AD or Armor. It also has a shorter CD and CDR. AP MR Items: {{item:3174}} {{item:3102}} and if you're really struggling, you can still get: {{item:3001}} AD MR Items: {{item:3156}} This is probably the first case where AD items are better than AP. But even then, if an AD champion is struggling that bad in lane that he opts for this over a dirk, it hurts him more than an AP champ who gets seekers first. You now have bonus armor against someone who has no armor pen. And for 200 gold cheaper, I might add.
HP is more of a gate to buy the item than a defensive stat, it only protects you from like half a crit
: full AD = high chance of winning, full ap = autolose
5 ADC is pretty viable tbh, by the time you use resources to kill the fed one, their team has melted your armor, Graves has 500 AR/MR, and 3 of your teammates are dead
: Why do you guys have to be so...unresponsive?
epic is an actual company, riot is a bunch of manchildren that released one game and spend all day playing it instead of developing it
: Leveling Alt Accounts is terrible
try ARAM or 3v3, there's more bots in here than all the real players sub-30 combined
DankSan (NA)
: ARAM is seriously fucked up
it's kind of incredible there's so much spaghetti that making changes to almost exclusively SR breaks stuff there

Râmmus (NA)
: I thought one of my accounts got hacked, riot support's response is to ban my main and my backup.
remember in the early 2000's when this was actually an acceptable security system? a small team of college SE students could implement a better system on a shitty class project nowadays
: Account was hacked, contacted support for help to recover it, so they banned me
pretty embarrassing they don't have a two factor option in 2018
IVG Bad Dog (EUNE)
: Why Nexus Blitz should stay
maybe if they nerf heim in this mode
Tyswow (NA)
: Buying rune pages is SOO cheap. I can't really take the pay to win argument seriously. This is a free game they need to make revenue some how. There is no nobility in spending 0 money on the game. It just means that others that are paying for you to win because if it wasn't for their spend you'd have no game to play.
Fortnite, PUBG, Overwatch, CS:GO and DOTA2 seem to get by pretty well selling only cosmetics. It's a relief every popular PC game copied Valve's model instead of Riot's.
: So Ninja started to play League
I feel like if you had voice chat you would realize you're already there and have been there for years
Tyswow (NA)
: you mean they were Play to Win? yeah - They should have just made the old runes FREE instead of removing them. The best thing that Riot could do would be to bring back old runes and make them 100% free.
Play to win is pay to win if there are options to buy it (pages) or get the resource faster than someone spending no cash (xp boosts). runes are still pay to win to some degree, but Riot coincidentally made them less p2w once NA started tanking players I agree they should remove or make runes 100% free, because then it wouldn't be p2w and the game would actually be competitive
Tyswow (NA)
: I've lost all passion for League. Am I alone? I feel so cold. I have to let go.
old runes were p2w, and they were as deep as the current system, because you would just have about 4 or 5 pages that were the best value for each role, or if you were one tricking you would have 4 or 5 pages that were the best value in different matchups
: This might be unpopular, but I really don't enjoy nexus blitz.
dominion was better when you wanted to play a specific champ and a quick game
: **Because it's free.** Riot has no obligation to set up these types of reward systems. Before, the only way you were able to attain skins was through RLM purchase or by attending/participating in events. Something like this where you can easily gain methods to get skins for free should be, and rightly so, difficult to buy via OE. Each time you get a shard, that's potential money Riot just lost there, but they are still doing it for the players. Skins, events, and merchandise are realistically the only main income source they have. They need funding to run the game, don't complain over free things.

: How to Propose Punishment System Changes
what about actually building 2-factor (discord has it, and is worth 10 times less than Riot Games), and using phone numbers to stop people from making a new account for ranked to avoid bans? it would put a higher price on ban evasion, and the account security system wouldn't be a relic of the 90s
Ludicol0 (NA)
: quinn is busted
They don't need a rework, this is just the perfect meta for them. After a nerf every patch until worlds they're going to be dumpstered if riot listens and lowers the damage in the game/increases mitigation.
: Playing ADC vs Akali is a pain
its literally the same as playing against vayne except akali doesn't have a knockback
hotarse (NA)
: Wow, Riot Game must be desperate for more players/NA monies if they are going this far. I guess that lame Ryze trailer didn't bring enough hype back to their dumb stupid windman game.
does seem to correlate with not being the most popular game in NA anymore
zPOOPz (NA)
: if this "joke" is buying 6 tears, the fact that you didn't get punished for it means you got away with your "joke" so not entirely sure what your complaint is
I did get punished for it, I'm mad the entire game mode is a joke and I made harmless one and got called a c**t three games ago but Riot didn't care : )
: You're right. This should have been a 14 day ban. You can rectify the situation by creating a support ticket.
heaven forbid you make a joke when your nexus is being autoed and the enemy has all turrets and wukong in a rgm
zPOOPz (NA)
: I don't need to figure anything out. Items bought have nothing to do with LB. LeaveBuster doesn't just detect you force close LoL. If you just walk around the fountain constantly, you will still trigger LB. If you afk farm for prolong period of time without helping your team or fight, you will still trigger LB. If you buy 6 shoes at 10 minute mark and keep them until end of game, you will NOT trigger LB as long as you play and fight (you'll trigger feederbuster though, which is a different system than LB)
Well I already described the only thing I did, so update your leaverbuster requirements document to include buying all tears in the last 2 mins of a game
zPOOPz (NA)
: 1) that silly feedback report is wonky at best and you only receive it randomly. It does NOT means the person is not punished if you don't get that feedback 2) only the last person to report that person and that report leads to punishment will you receive the feedback. If someone else report him after you did, that person will get the feedback, not you. It does NOT means the person is not punished if you don't get that feedback. 3) 6 tears usually lead to 14-day intentionally feeding (category) type punishment, not leavebuster. You would have to actually afk to get LB'd. Tears or any other item(s) have nothing to do with LB.
well, this is the closest I've done to afk'ing in over a year, so figure the last one out
