: Asking for reports already is considered toxic behavior by the instant feedback system.
It is worth pointing out that there is a difference between "report X for toxicity" once in post game chat and "report X for feeding" "report X for feeding" "report X for feeding" "report X for feeding" "report X for feeding" "report X for feeding" "report X for feeding" every someone dies. The latter is considered toxic, the former is not.
: Winning/losing doesn't contain enough information for efficiently determining ELO.
There are a couple problems I could see with this. 1. If one lane does extremely poorly and eventually loses an inhib while the other two do extremely well, do the other teammates deserve to lose LP because of one poor teammate? Even if they manage to carry 4v6, do they still deserve to gain less LP than usual because they lost an inhibitor. 2. If a team gets smashed early but manages to turtle until late game, get a baron, then steamroll down mid and win the game, do they deserve less LP because they lost 3 inhibs early, but only got one inhib before winning? I don't think so. They may have done poorly in the beginning, but if they managed to stall out the game long enough or win one crucial teamfight then they shouldn't gain a restricted amount of LP.

But when 3/4ths of my deaths are to 1 shot head shots it pisses me off. because how can I react to that? How can I outplay or turn a fight around? 1 shot abilities make the game unfun and boring. It makes the game straight up tilting.

"It's the opposite side of a pole, so it's the same point." "What?" "Go home and read the textbook to understand." I figured it out now, thanks to some 10y old math website.

: I just won as Udyr jg and it makes me want to quit LoL.
Team comps are part of the strategy of LoL. Learning how to play with a poor team comp, how to play in matchups that do not favor you, and how to play against a really good team comp is all part of the challenge of the game. Leona, when picking a champion that cannot clear well, accepted the fact that you would starve her of her jungle's camps. She made that choice in picking the champion. ######The overall affect of the scuttle crab changes on the viability of non-duelist junglers is a big deal though. If a team picks the comp {{champion:86}} {{champion:121}} {{champion:238}} {{champion:222}} {{champion:63}} and can't close out the game quickly, then they deserve to lose. The opposite would be an even larger affront to the game's balance.
: We do delete posts that are political/religious/social, because frankly they're not usually related to League. Some champs, as well as the new Rainbow Poro icon and Riot's supporting diversity, and IDAHOTB, brings up sexuality or other social issues into discussions. Where I stand on that issue is irrelevant; it's been brought forward by Riot. Since the issue is related to League, these posts can stay. I do agree that if we're going to allow these posts up, then there should be equal opportunity to voice opposition, and that's fine so long as it's done in a respectful manner. There are posts in both threads where your comments were deleted where dissenting opinions were left up, as they were 1) done in a respectful manner and 2) furthered the discussion. (Edit 2043 CST) Here's one ~~taken~~ *deleted* from a recent thread about Pyke being black: >Identifying so hard by what you look like to the point you throw a tantrum if you're not being "represented" and file lawsuits and all that is most definitely excessive pride. That was in response to a player questioning why you thought celebrating champion diversity was "vanity," as you put it. Here's one that I deleted from a post discussing how Riot intends to use gay characters in their game >Fuck off with your vanity. Call me a homophobe if you want, I don't care. These, as well as the 3 other comments that were recently removed, took a markedly different tone than any other comments on those discussions. You were not trying to be respectful, but inflammatory. Your tone and explanations to responses made it clear you weren't interested in discussing the issue, but that you wanted to anger other posters.

: I saw this Gem on reddit
>[riot blaustoise]I’ll still talk about it. I can definitely see how a lot of our design can be seen as “full random” these days. Not a designer myself, but I think a lot of that is due to what it takes to actually change and innovate league while making it better longterm. This game naturally has tons of variance, replay-ability, and amazing moments, and adding champions or game systems that enhance and create new moments without ruining old ones is tricky. >We have 140 champions, so if you look back at some of the recent ones they’re way more “wtf” than the initial offering in league. Permanent transformation, summoner spell stealing, hyper mobile supports, etc. >Even with systems design, I saw jungle plants get roasted by early sentiment from players. Not just on Reddit, but a lot of our data across the broader NA playerbase showed them not going over well. Tbh I thought we were high as fuck when we made them and I did a double take when they were first in our playtests. A month out, they were one of our best received system changes. Global sentiment was super in favor of them. >I’d argue things like plants, Kayn, and even item changes like Redemption resulted from some more whackier or out-there designs. I agree with Meteos actually, but I’m not sure I’d say it’s because our designers are looking to just do weird full random stuff to make their mark. Rather I think it’s because the design space in league is really challenging, and to change the game, keep it fresh, and not ruin the core experience is very difficult. later on the same thread EDIT: [link to comment](https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/8khbnp/meteos_on_riot_design_team/dz815u5/)

: They are trying to appeal to the new generation of gamers who are into fast pace, low learning curve games. Which in my opinion will just kill the older playerbase who are loyal to the pre 2015 version of the game.
Yeah pretty much. In order to keep the elusive and money making majority of gamers who don't want to really dedicate themselves to a video game, riot has to work to keep the game from going stale. This is at the cost of high level players who consistently have to restrategize everything when riot flips the whole game on its head again or people who simply want to play a stable game.

No one says you're wrong for being bronze when you're talking about mechanics. Where they'd say you're wrong is if you suggest a change to the mechanics, and your insight into the implications of whatever change you suggest _can_ be judged based on your experience.

I assume you're talking to me? Well, I didn't mean "in this scenario Lee Sin will deal X amount of damage" but instead "if we look at multiple different data points from different sites, Lee Sin is objectively busted in the current meta." Using logic and math you can also understand things on at least a fundamental level, which is still worthwhile in discussion. For example, it does not take a plat 1 or above player to realize that Cho'Gath with stoneplate was going to be problematic.

: I don't think it is moot persay, but let's be honest, most of the bronze and silver QQ about champions especially on these forums boils down to: List strengths of champion while blowing them out of portion, act as if they have no weaknesses, complain about them being strong into matches (normally against the champions said player plays.), ignore all criticism about how they might be wrong, act as if there is no conceivable way that they are the ones at fault and only said champion is OP, no other possibilities.

Riot makes the client work well and in turn they recieve money from the business who makes the client.
