: Honestly if you have so little to live for that you would kill yourself over some keyboard warrior in league you really don't deserve to be alive. Suicide is for the weak and if you do it that's pretty much natural selection to me
No. No one's suggesting people kill themselves only over League - although, if anyone has it's still incredibly sad; _you_ don't have the right to determine the worth of a person's life - but if you're already struggling IRL, and play a videogame to relax and escape, only to be harassed and abused by strangers over something absolutely petty, you can be seriously affected. I know I've gotten angry, even sad, when I come home from a hard day at work, boot up League, then spend 45 minutes getting screamed at by a manchild running it down mid. It's important to remember that times change. For many Generation Z'ers (a huge portion of League's playerbase) the internet isn't just a tool or a distraction - it's a vital part of their life. They use it for socialization, research, entertainment, even schoolwork. Maybe a very, very small percentage of people will be driven to self-harm by insults on the internet, but League of Legends has a very, very large playerbase. Even if only one person kills themself because of what someone says in a videogame - whether that game is the genesis of the problem or not - it's a tragedy and those who fight to prevent it are goddamn heroes. And kudos to the OP. Thank you for posting this.

: Sometimes calling for a report is justified. Say cases when your teammate keeps afking. The enemy team might not realize it so it is something that could get attention called to it. Chances are though, the enemy team won't report the guy who afked on your team or even the feeder. Why would they, your afk/feeder just helped them win the game. Which brings us to the point, calling for a report normally won't get someone to do it so it is pretty pointless. I will sometimes do it for the afker/rage quitter but even then,it is rare.
1 report matters just as much as 9 for the automatic punishment system.

: You know how we all make jokes about stereotyped Yasuo / Zed / Lee Sin players ? Well, it's because of these very jokes that whenever we stumbled upon a case like that, I have a hard time accepting that those players are real people who exist for real. They seem kind of... too caricatural to actually be true human beings living in the very same world that I do.
Yep. It's hard to believe that people are actually that irrationally angry.

Totally agree. I'm glad we actually have proper world building now.

http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/Be9Zbj6O-riot-is-this-breaking-the-summoners-code Take a loot at that thread. About 6 months ago, I asked whether it was okay for me to play Smite "Support" Roaming Shaco and counterjungle. Wuks replied and said that's okay, as long as I got my team's permission. This situation isn't new.
: i think it's an attempt at making a joke tying together the word "HUE" with or perhaps the spanish word for testicles. or maybe he just likes eggs. whatever it is it went over my head as well.
Rioter Comments
: Honestly, I'm not thrilled about her passive. Passives that rely on a map, rather than the champion, are uninteresting.
Wait, what happens to Shyvana on ARAM and Twisted Treeline? She just doesn't get a passive?
: Lol that how felt about pre 30 games but then I laugh because those players think teemo is good.
Eh, he csn be pretty strong if you don't know how to deal with him. One of the reasons he's so popular with brand new players, I imagine.
: How I view non-Level 30 Beginner players in League nowadays....
Pre-level 30 there is a Teemo In every game. Every. Single. Game.
: I downvoted. Because it was at 65.

: how can THE GAME possibly be this overly protective of only one subsection of humanity. I could go in there and insult every religion and race and this shit wouldn't happen. Literally the presidential candidate of the USA says far worse on a daily basis. Please Riot. Stop being over sensitive, it's ruining a good thing.
Any form of hate-speech is a bannable offence by the terms of service. Racism and Homophobia included.

: Censorship overboard !
Talking about homosexuality isn't banned or offensive. Insulting gay people is, and saying a three letter word starting with 'F' is very insulting.
: "Stop picking fighters and pick a damn peeling tank."
: "We're currently not planning to bring over the item set creator feature from the legacy client."
I love item sets. Please don't remove them. It helps me remember more complicated builds

I find it hilarious that they actually won a few of those games.

: Let's talk about Plants!
If this goes through I will quit League forever. I've been playing since season 3, and I'm a jungle main. I adore this game, and will miss it. I knew it was too good be true - Riots been buttering up the community with nice skins, solo queue, and replays. Now they throw this piece of shit at us. Now all I can do is enjoy my last few months with this game before it's ruined for at least 1 season. Probably forever. Just listen to the community, Riot. Please don't do this to us. I love League of Legends and your about to destroy it. :(
: Ahh, sorry, MB. Was just browsing through these and wasn't reading very carefully. Apologies.
: Actually it really wasn't. If you check the word count on it it is substantially shorter than any of the LotR books, shorter than all but 2 Harry Potter books, and, unfortunately, shorter than any twilight book. Not saying it was a short book, but it is a pretty average length, definitely not what I would refer to as being exceptionally long. (My opinion may be slightly skewed due to my high reading speed and having been reading the LotRs books since 1st grade.)
I agree that the Hobbit is pretty short, or at least average. I was saying it's shorter than most fantasy books.
: I liked the filler though... The book was really long too. I just feel one movie wouldnt have been long enough to cover the whole thing without being a super fast fowarded narrative like The Last Airbender.

: I like your change. I feel compelled to reiterate my position that New Champ Select is functionally inferior to the old one in every way, but your specific change is really good imo. **EDIT:** I don't think I did a good enough job specifying that what I mean is that the *design* of the *interface* in New Champ Select is fundamentally inferior to the old one in every way. The actual champ picking, I think, does a good job and was an overall good evolution of the system.
I'm actually curious, what don't you like about new champ select?
: Please make a new attempt to rework Taric.
I mained him too, and was disappointed. He's not the same champion and IMO nowhere near as fun. But the rework is much healthier and, really just a better champion. He's actually getting played in Worlds. And winning. He takes more skill and, as Oleandervine said, is all about timing. Saying that an ult that can grant team wide invulnerability is trash just is just ignorant. Also pick rate is no indication of power. Nobody plays Aurelion Sol, but he's a monster in the hands of an experienced player. I know it sucks that you hate what used to be your favourite champion, but Riot considers the rework a success. And it was, even if some of the old Taric mains are unhappy.

I'm not a big esports fan but that game was exciting as fuck. I was sitting forward in my chair and waving my arms around like a fool by the end of it.
: Perhaps either a **Snow Day Yorick** for this year or a **Crazy Cat Lady Yorick** next April Fools.
Snow Day Yorick would be perfect. Good idea.

In mythology Satyr's are all rapists. Read into that what you will about Teemo and Soraka.

: Stuff that shouldn't work but does; Fun builds.
{{champion:22}} {{item:3100}} {{item:3124}} {{item:3115}} {{item:3285}} {{item:3091}} {{item:3158}} I'm not going to say it's good, but it's pretty damn fun.
: I played with a jungler who refused to gank, against an illaoi.
I've never understood the multitude of people who don't understand that playing defensively is an option. Especially as a top laner, you often don't have any other choice.
: OMG. srsly Riot? done. DONE!! Sickening!
Calm down buddy. Too much Teemo can be dangerous.
: I would totally pay 20 bucks for the GP announcer pack. Other announcer packs I would pay for. Kled, Forecast Janna, Gragas, and Phreak.
I always need more Phreak in my life.
: Whch Champions represent your family members?
{{champion:27}} is definitely my Dad.

It means he doesn't get crazy armour penetration unless he builds crit chance. It's not perfect, but it helps.

: Tank items should be reworked
This is a terrible idea. Build diversity is already low, with this change it will all but disappear.
