: Early 9.10 Patch Discussion
Can we get ARURF back. The monotony of the same old games is sinking in. At least 80% CD, and button mashing toppled with a Random character breaks the cycle.

: Wonder how much the player base has fallen off since they removed URF
Look me up in game.... Luzz. I have a great group of folks that do some fun games with ARAM.... Customs only matches.... We use discord as primary voice, and will do things like yordles vs humans, all tanks, all mages, only warmogs, or only phantom dancers. Generally draft matches on howling abyss. Lots folks join in, and sometimes have a waiting to get on group to join the fun. Usually play in wee hours of the morning.... And most ArE in NA. We have our own game mode, where you pick the champ for the other team... Since league won't give us what we want, it's up to us to make the best of it the way we can. Hope you will join us!

You can now get any Prestige Point skin through a single pass purchase if you play enough. I got a great idea.... Take back the new logo, return to the old..... Give us a permanent URF variant, preferably ARURF (my opinion), make it subscription base to play, via a pass of some sort, maybe a all games pass for game modes. Those of us that want to vegetate can and will, and simply those can't afford it, just have to play what's handed out in the free section to play. What's the difference of buying a pass for an event to get some prestiege skin, when what some people want to do is just button mash.... Why go to Walmart, when I am a member to Costco..... I do, solely to get the little things, that Costco don't offer... But when I'm gonna get something expensive, buying that computer, TV, furniture ,or bulk foods. Costco is the place. I'm willing to Shell out some dough for access to certain areas of the game. This will keep most players from the "churn and burn" effect of a sanctioned event. Keep it free and stay free...... but for those that are willing to pay the Piper, they can have access to something exclusive within custom games. Most games I'm playing these days, are customs amongst friends, so who cares that were there just goofing off. Honestly just give us a URF variant for custom modes, make it pay to play.... Maybe something like I can buy a pass for the ability to create a custom URF game, and have to invite 9 others before the game starts. Then only those in customs would be playing whatever they wanted.... _**Customs means no exp, no essence. Just shits and giggle's**_!!!!! So when we need exp and some essence we go back to normal(s) to get it.... Rank, Normals, ARAM, events.

: Tilly, the Frost Flame Magician
Nice concept.... Though couple of things to bring in mind.... I think if someone is frozen, would be 50% damage from fire, sort of ice counters fire, and vise vs. that would also make the champ useful as either a support or mage carry, maybe a combo wombo, however switching from ice to fire and back, would have it's negatives, vs also being in ice form, say freezing an opponent, then blasting them in fire melts the ice but only doing, 1/2 damage.... However staying in ice, if opponent is frozen or marked, some form of physical attack gets the bonus damage of shatter effect.... Also should have a cooldown on the switch R, 3 sec.... Like a Nidalee. This will allow the player to commit to the form, and accept the consequences for doing so. Still nice concept, and very thought out.
: So long and thanks for all the bullshit, Riot.

: ARURF to be PERMA
It's always about the Benjamins.... But I bet if League begins to lose a 30 to 50% to it's player base.... Then all the mods will be wide open.... To get back as many as they possibly could.... So what I vow, is to curtail my cash flow to them.... Skins are purely for looks... Time to boycott league.

: Say the reasons you dislike the current state of the game
Want a URF gamemde, preferably ARURF added as permanent. So can play in customs to do whatever, I have plenty of friends that will play it with added rules. We do stuff like this in ARAM customs..... All warmogs, all AS, yordles vs humans, or whatever goofy thing comes up. We play cuz we like playing, no need to level up, or worry about getting essence.... want to be able to play league, the way I want it..... Sort of Gary's Mod in League.
: New ways to earn Prestige Points
> [{quoted}](name=KenAdamsNSA,realm=NA,application-id=A7LBtoKc,discussion-id=s7sQZyak,comment-id=,timestamp=2019-04-02T16:58:22.161+0000) > > Prestige Points have been out for a few months, with K/DA Evelynn Prestige Edition soon joining the roster. We're working on a couple ways to get Prestige Points through our major events and while they won't be in place for Eve's initial release, we're sharing our plans early so you can take them into consideration when deciding how to get her and other Prestige Point skins! > > **100 Prestige Point Bundle in Event Shops** > > Each event's Event Shop will offer a one-time purchase of 100 Prestige Points as an option for players who prefer a Prestige Points skin to that event's Prestige skin. The token price of this purchase will be a bit higher than the price of the event skin on offer since we still want to highlight the event-exclusive Prestige skin and the Prestige Points option lets you choose from a pool of skins. For example, Prestige Firecracker Vayne cost 1000 Lunar Revel tokens, so the 100 Prestige Point bundle would have cost 1100 tokens. > > **25 Prestige Points from “Milestone Missions”** > > Event Passes now come with a chain of “Milestone Missions” that grant Prestige Points—we're currently thinking five missions that grant 5 Prestige Points each. You'll be able to earn all 25 points regardless of when you pick up the pass but won't get banked credit for matches played before then. We've got at least four events planned for the rest of 2019 so you'll be able to earn a Prestige Point skin through this change alone. The idea here is that players who can’t grind in a shorter burst can instead grind over time and earn a Prestige Point skin. Completing all of the Milestone Missions should take substantially fewer games than what’s required to unlock the event Prestige skin. > > We hope these new options are exciting for those of you who want to get in on the Prestige Points bling without purchasing Loot bundles. Let us know what you think! This does not imply towards anything in this comment.... however just wanting to get someones attention in games mode group. I have started a rant, less than week ago, with folks responding to ARURF. I ran a simple poll if the mode would be favored as permanent. Now, the poll doesn't in any shape represent the majority of the community, however the numbers are pretty much in favor of. I started with folks that I played with within my friends column, and since then it has taken its own path, and still continues to grow. If you as the company would do a simple poll yourself, to find out what the community wants, and I would greatly think you would. I believe the poll I posted would probably stand true. Anyways I hope you woulld consider looking at this.... as it has potential to mean something for the greater good of the game. Appeasing the masses, and in return getting paid to do it. https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/rant/ndmnmuNV-arurf-to-be-perma over 800 votes, and at least 3.5k reviews.... just take a peep.

: how is 16 deaths in a 20 min ranked game not a ban-able offence
Sadly, it's crap like this that ruins the game entirely.... People have bad games, and if your being beaten, where were you to support him/ her your teammate. You stick a finger and point, vs maybe what you could of done to help him out.... In the end it's a team game. But wait, MOST RANKED PLAYERS don't know that there is no "I" or "U" in the word TEAM.... then when U lose, the team loses too? So quick to blame everyone but yourself. Shame on you all, that point fingers, then report. What does it make you out to be.... Definitely not a good sport. Maybe time to give up league and go to CHURCH, try reading the Bible, a lot good things to make you a good person from it. Maybe some compassion..... Is a good place to start. Smh What has this world turn too

: Nah, the reason URF isn't permanent is because it's literally making people quit the game. Their churn rate is twice as high while URF is running, it's not just people who quit after URF is over. And we have a more balanced URF, it's called regular Summoner's Rift. URF by nature can and will never be balanced. Have you read the boards the last couple of months? People are already complaining that the regular game is too much like URF and how they want things to be slower and have longer cooldowns.

People are already complaining that the regular game is too much like URF and how they want things to be slower and have longer cooldowns. Just don't understand the logic that URF makes people quit the game? It's their choice to quit..... I believe, in my humble opinion, that players in ranked queues fuss over the 10 minute wait times, while URF variants are on the game. Most of those people get fed up, that they can't play their game, and maybe their the ones quitting, by their choice. But if the mode was to stay permanent, people will eventually mosey back to rank and normals for a break from URF. Thus you will keep the players that normally churn after the event, because when they get tired of rank or normals they would come back to URF for some relaxation.... Just as we see ranking players come to ARAM to come get chest and take a break from rank. We have yet to see life after URF, of any statistic over a few weeks. However I believe the numbers, after the last stint of ARURF, help decide the fate of NEXUS blitz.

: What kind of experimental game mode do you wish for now that Nexus Blitz is defeated?
Never played BmB, but I would like to see some form of singles DM with URF elements, on a Ascension or Dominion map. Multiple spawning points, baddies that do AOE damage and fog of war. Maybe a Ascension level boss, that all must help to defeat (no buff) or game ends in defeat. Then back to singles DM.
: I would REALLY love those statistics that you obviously don't have. And no, I don't mean that poll you linked which is BEYOND biased. I mean really; what did you expect from people who only went into the "Rant" sub-board to find some echo chamber they could lock themselves in? On top of that, the only reason people come to the Boards in terms of gameplay comments is to complain. Even if you tried to run that poll anywhere else on the Boards, you would NEVER be able to get reliable results. The only silent majority we're sure exists in the LoL community is the one that stays off the Boards.
Your absolutely right, it's my opinion the silent majority will answer. Only RITO, could make that happen. I placed a rant up, and swarmed my friends list, and asked the folks that played ARURF and the ones who didn't. I asked for their vote. It was up to them what they did with it. Even yourself, had a choice to come here and comment, whether for or against. As with everyone that has already came through, on their own free will. I challenge RITO to do the same, this is just a straw poll, then send the word out, via the servers, and let's get the true vote. And I BELIEVE the silent majority will answer.

: they'll never make URF mode permanent, because they know its the only decently fun mode the game has left anymore. if they make URF mode permanent, no one will play their precious ranked mode and the already-dying game will be divebombing into the grave

I agree with your post, and not to steal your thunder, I too have started a poll in rants section, that have just been added to the boards, so please vote and bring your opinions there to....

: Id rather them take ARAM away than ARURF.
I still like ARAM, and know many others like it too, but I think for most folks, that ARAM, was just something to get away of playing the 50 minute maps. RITO had done some experimenting with 10 vs 10 in the customs....we were like holy shit, getting 5 v 5 was hard to fill.....10 v 10.... Also 5 v5 on TT. Just not enough creeps to go around.....but I think, ARAM rules on a TT Map would be interesting, but in the end just be the same shit. I would be open for having sandbox modes in customs, where we can create the playzone. Honestly, that's where they need to put ARURF, ARAM.... KEEP IT A SANDBOX STYLE PLAY!

: Why do we keep getting different versions of URF mode instead of regular URF? A URF launched a long time ago, way before we ever started doing RGM. It was basically a crazy April Fool’s gag that ended up becoming hugely popular. Given how popular it is, lots of players want to know why we don’t bring back regular URF more often. There’s one reason that we haven’t really talked about before now: URF makes some people stop playing League. Every time we ran regular URF, we’d see a huge spike of games being played, and then the numbers actually dropped back down to a level that’s lower than it was just before we ran URF. It’s normal for new players to join League and for some longtime players to leave—this happens all the time. But when we turned on regular URF, it was different. In NA, for example, whenever we ran URF we’d usually see over twice as many longtime players leave the game compared to what we would’ve normally expected. In other words, some people binged on URF, and then suddenly stopped playing League. And the size of the dropoff indicates that it’s not just people coming back for URF and then leaving afterwards. Despite spending a lot of time investigating the reasons, we aren’t actually sure whether URF causes some sort of “hangover” effect or if it makes regular games feel slow by comparison—maybe it’s because URF feels like playing League with cheats turned on. Regardless, after we turn on URF, total games played go down, as do overall game hours. And they don’t recover for a long time, if ever. We’ve been trying to wrap our heads around a way to solve this problem for a while, and that’s one of the biggest reasons you see us experimenting with variations on the mode like ARURF and Snow Battle ARURF. Although these modes still suffer a bit from the “binge-then-churn” effect that regular URF has, it’s not nearly as bad (probably because you’re not seeing the same OP champs every game). URF causes some people to stop playing League, but a lot of you really love it. So instead of killing URF altogether, we’re just gonna keep experimenting to find some healthier version of the mode. Tell us your thoughts about Snow Battle ARURF—we’ll listen and apply what we learn to ARURF’s next appearance. Yes this specifically talks about URF, but it can also be applied to ARURF, Snowdown URF, or any other variance of the game mode that is URF
I can't honestly believe folks leave because the "URF switch" has been activated.... But if they do, it falls in line with normals are affected by the number of people occupied elsewhere. URF and it's variants take the bulk of the people's time.... obviously time spent playing the mode is time away from normals and rank. But of the casual player base, who cares about playing normals.... Or grinding in rank. I was around when the first URF was released, I even remember the joke of the time, that it was gonna be slowing the game way down vs speeding it all together. But RITO unleashed an untamed beast with URF.... I myself prefer the AR effect.... As it levels the playing field a bit, also makes use of most champions, vs the same champs over and over again. So what does it take to make it a custom, there if you want to play it, then we have to find our own 10 to play it.... Or make it a custom on HB,TT, or SR? how is that any different, only the same people will be playing it, RIOT goes along it's business making money, and the player base that wants the mode, gets what it wants. But then again, NORMALS are affected, because folks in normals want the mode too.... And you need the player base to focus on the championships. Not just taking up prescious server time. Nah, I think we should continue to voice our dismay....

: There doesn't seem to be any good reason at all for Riot to keep making an ephemeral appeal to the audience of gamers who like faster modes like ARURF or Nexus Blitz rather than retaining that audience by making either or both of these modes permanent. Riot hasn't explained why ARURF isn't permanent, but regarding the permanence Nexus Blitz after the alpha test they said, "we didn’t end up seeing the sustained levels of engagement that would’ve moved Nexus Blitz directly into becoming a permanent feature." Well, I don't have access to any data for this last stint of ARURF, but the queue times remained very short throughout its availability in comparison to Summoner's Rift. What are the levels of engagement for Twisted Treeline? Yet it is maintained as a permanent mode.
I agree with you on the queue times, never had a problem getting a game on.... Nexus blitz didn't appeal to me, nor did Odyssey... Being able to play a random champ at an elevated level was refreshing.
