Everyone is like that, not just millennials. At my workplace we had an employee (at least 40-50y old) dox another to a hateful facebook group. People noticed something was up when the targeted employee started getting complained about for seemingly no reason at all. After a bunch more shenanigans happened (people started calling corporate to file complaints), the lady who started this whole shitfest got fired. She of course, plead innocence despite the fact that it was clear what she'd done. You wanna know what all this was over? The targeted employee happened to say "you know, I'm not really a huge fan of dogs" and the other overheard.

: with like 10 times less pick rate but okay
yep, barely 1.8% playrate compared to Ahri's 12.9%. Of course a low playrate is going to inflate his winrate.
: thats all it ever had to be. when you played dominion people had fun, rarely people were OMG REPORT TOXIC STUPID YI NOOB CHAMP. because they didnt sit in lane being bored for 25 mins missing cs because they were bad, nobody csed in dominion u didnt need to u just needed to clear and push the waves.
I specifically remember a lot of "illaoi is a noob champ" and "heimer is a noob champ" when I played
: but lets assume those 150k left for another game when dominion was gone, and maybe 25% of them bough 8 skins a year, with alot of skins going for a 1350 min now that adds up.
you know what also adds up? Paying for servers in multiple different regions for a gamemode that is rarely utilized.
: Ivern in Nexus Blitz
This is intended. His passive is designed for a solo jungler and would fuck everything up with 2. EDIT: not to mention the jungle camps are supposed to be really hard to solo, but his passive would make it super easy.

No one played it. 150k unique daily players. Even assuming two thirds of those were bots, that's sill a higher daily player count than many online games can boast. Riot canned Dominion because they wanted to allocate those resources to Rift and the occasional cash-grab skin promotion map. Not sure what has changed that would make Blitz an option, though.
150k pales in comparison to the tens of millions who play SR. Just because it tops "other games" doesn't mean it isn't a drain on riot and a cost worth cutting. >Riot canned Dominion because they wanted to allocate those resources to Rift and the occasional cash-grab skin promotion map. Not sure what has changed that would make Blitz an option, though. no, they canned dominion because no one played it or enjoyed it and they wanted to divert resources towards something more fun.
: I think it's intentional
It's definitely intentional. Otherwise it would totally break the role for anyone playing with/against ivern.
: Okay what's this ring of fire? Sorry i stopped playing the game so this is foreign to me{{sticker:sg-lux-2}}
the bardle royale event in Nexus Blitz (new gamemode)
: No. Literally a tiny minute fraction of the player base played Dominion. That's why it was removed. Case and point, they did multi map balancing on twisted treeline and summoners rift for two or so years after they removed Dominion.
This is the real answer. they said it was too costly to support dominion as a map when no one played it and they didn't want to fix it.

playing with a "cancer champ" on your team can be amazing sometimes. As long as the player is good.

: Ah, I didn't mean it like that with Flash. I said Flash, cause if Pickrate was the only concern, Flash would be an issue. But if you look at a graph over time, you'd see if there was or wasn't an increase in pickrate of ignite, and whether or not it matches historical averages of ignite being picked.
Where is this magical "graph over time" that you've found?

Dr Mercy (NA)
: What is Ignite's Pickrate on a graph over multiple seasons? Because that means more than just a pickrate, when Flash especially is in all of the top 8.
I don't know I wasn't able to find a site that would display pick rate over time. The whataboutism with flash is stupid. It is such an integral part of the game at this point that changing it would be catastrophic.
Fízz v2 (EUW)
: Its not like there always were people taking ignite top mid and support Kappa
I rarely saw this many ignites on a team at the frequency that you see in season 8. [Flash/ignite has a 34.4% pick rate,](https://www.leagueofgraphs.com/champions/spells) the highest out of all summmoner spell cominations by 15% This isn't usual. Ignite is over powered.

If I had to choose. {{champion:150}} in little form bc it would basically be like a cat walking on you.

: If an enemy champion is nearby though (especially if they are walking towards the pit), when your team is taking dragon, it's usually a good idea though to send someone to disrupt/distract them so the risk of a steal drops to 0.

: Nunu is from a kids book
That explains why he looks mildly familiar! I love his look though.
: One for All Skarner v Skarner is the funniest thing in the world. You just chain impale people back to your fountain LOL
seeing ~15 heimer turrets underneath a tower, all firing at one turret, was the funniest thing I'd seen in a while in leage.
: Today I found out that Evelynn can lay eggs
I'm not even surprised that evelynn is into oviposition (don't google that)
: I quit this game roughly a year ago
don't waste your time here - the game still sucks. I'm only playing one for all right now because it's such a clusterfuck that it's hard to care about balance. Yeah Talon can still one shot you with extreme ease, but look at all those heimer turrets! LOL!

Only problem is it might take a while in the early game so you gotta have good map awareness. the issue with this line of logic is that it takes a long time (dependent on champion/game time) and it is a lot riskier. Forcing one person to solo dragon or stop fighting dragon and waste time is stupid, especially when all people are gonna do is go walk to bot/mid and take one wave. It's an unnecessary risk and I don't see why everyone is so intent on doing it.

I think that they need to stop changing things that affect the whole game, E.G. scuttlecrabs, runes, ADC changes, etc. but these kinds of reworks are good.

: Best Soraka KDA in NA- What what?
It's an average. that means that if you get one kill one game and 0 kills another, the average between the two games would be .5 kills
: A tiny bit of {{summoner:13}}, at least from my perspective as a VGU vet... It's not about theme, per se. It's about going into production, officially committing to making something. _That's_ usually when we'll announce it to players. The DNA pod could have theme locked for months before that happens. As we type I'm working on champs that might not be announced until next year. Things may change, but we have a direction. Why work this way? I think the idea is, the only thing worse than silence would be to take something away from you all that we've already promised. The longer we wait, the more momentum a project gets, the less likely that'll be to happen.
>I think the idea is, the only thing worse than silence would be to take something away from you all that we've already promised. thisx100 Ao Shin and Dragon Master swain come to mind when this kind of thing is brought up (though DMS was made after his VGU). Rather silence than empty promises.

: Why even play anymore? Because it's still fun for me. If you're a ranked player, give yourself a break, and go play some normals or arams, they're relaxing. Ranked will always be spammed with the best champions, because people play it for win. No matter how Riot will buff and nerf people, FotM champions will still exist, and dominate rankeds. Game as a core is still really fun for me (unless im laning vs a teemo as a melee ;_;). Winning is fun. But losing with giving your all is fun too! Improving is fun, picking new things is fun, creating new strategies is fun. I recommend you OP, instead of spamming rankeds only (idk if you're doing that) mix them with normals, and test things on normals, try to do something fresh, just have fun!
Playing normals doesn't make the game any more fun for me. It's still dominated by op champions who absolutely destroy you and suck any fun from the game if you pick something less powerful or slightly off meta. Matchmaking is still bad and you'll face people 2x as good as you. TTK is still as low as in ranked so everyone is still one shot.
