: The sad state of toxicity in the community... on both sides.
Season 5 or 6, I forget. A genuinely honest post how the clock was ticking down on the final day before season ended. He/she was on final promo game and needed one last win since there was no more time to do the necessary games again. Final half hour or something. They merely MENTIONED this in /all. They did not ASK for a win, the enemy simply, out of generosity, forfeited the match. So struck with kindness, they posted on the forums praising the community at large for having wholesome people to do something so selfless for a total stranger. It was immediately met with the worst reception you could think of. Hundreds of downvotes, flooded with toxic remarks as far as the eye could see, and just all-around a circus. Yet we have had posts in the past that try to JUSTIFY the abhorrent behaviour of some of League’s most disgusting individuals (and not just Tyler1) because they were, and I use the term loosely, “entertaining” on Twitch and YouTube. If a popularity contest dictates how much a significant amount of the vocal community reacts positively vs negatively, we cannot take it seriously in the absolute slightest.

I prefer Phase Rush because you can pick that and every logical movement speed runs from Sorcery and Inspiration so that you get decent potential to gank.

Phase rush is horrible on him. Guardian isnt that great either
In MY experience, the games I play him in, the problem of GETTING to anyone on time as well as STAYING on them means I need as much help as I can get, especially with all the slows, leaps, dashes, etc. Have to cut cheesy escape duration where I can.
: Why is riot afraid to buff ivern ?

: Nunu's ult should apply the Grounded effect to enemies in range
See, this a FAR better buff than the current Blood Boil experiment on the PBE.

: Season 8 - Dodging Placements = Loss??
Nevermind. I originally responded with a false memory aided by a bitter experience. I was so sure of myself that I posted like a fool, but at least I admit to it and deleted the offending post. I really wish Riot would update their support page on the matter. https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/201751844-Queue-Dodging

: Why do Point and click "HARD" CC still exist?
Well, if we didn't have, say for example, a point and click stun...Master Yi & Co. would be ungodly powerful in teamfights REGARDLESS of being focused first?

: Akali is an unhealthy champion.
I know darn well that I am unaware of most of the nerf/buff history of Akali. That said, I do find it funny, to sinister degree, that every time I *do* pay attention to changes they make to her, it's always been a damage buff. 'Cause, y'know, she doesn't have any CC, right? lol But seriously, she's the most oppressive versatile melee champion I've ever seen.

: If T1 got unbanned i should be unbanned too
He was ID banned. Any individual accounts Riot had banned of T1’s REMAIN banned. He was not allowed to play the game, period. He did have secret accounts he played off-stream that weren’t obviously his so I feel those should have been banned but that’s neither here nor there.

Oh hey you're in Winnipeg right now too? What's up, dude! Also that's not true. We had that giant windstorm a few days back. That was brutal.

My memory is also pretty bad if I don’t eat....
: All these people complaining about not having clean water LOL
Where's this? That infamous town in the US that fracking has caused the groundwater to be toxic to the point where Social Services have been removing kids from their families due to being unable to provide clean water despite the government refusing to do anything about it? I'm sorry, I only hear of news well after the fact and this is a story that goes in and out of the news. If it is something else, please let me know! :)
: To those of you in the Vancouver area: Good luck.
Jeez, now that I'm living in Winter-peg (Winnipeg, MB), and I feel we haven't had our "real" weather since Xmas. So glad I chose to move here as opposed to there. I feel they like to lie to themselves about how "good" they have it, given it's stupidly expensive to live there. Hope they realize they can't treat everything like their normal fare of weather, given that I've heard horror stories about the warmest of places elsewhere.
: how long does it take to get out of dishonorable
From everything I read and combining my own experience with it, it sounds about right that what I read about around a year is the trick. However, for all we know, angry reports from people who just want someone to blame even if you stayed positive and TRIED to do what you could might interfere with that. I had an account be Dishonourable for 7 months and I had gotten a notification Riot noticed me be reasonable at the 2-month mark but nothing else. If they refuse to be transparent in how they handle honour, I refused to play that account further. Thank goodness I’m not wasting my patience on an account anymore that could literally be never re-instated to level 1 honour.
: The excuses they come up with to ban someone.
I’m not making any excuses for myself or anyone else punished by Riot. This is what it is and the Tribunal was far more rational. I only wish to convey that you will be infinitely denied any chance of recourse or pounding facts through people’s heads. This is because it’s too easy to jump on someone who one knows is in a bad spot. When they see you are banned, they directly think of the OTHER toxic players who die 30 times running it down mid, the players who spout the most horrible, unthinkable remarks, everyone who they hate. People like being part of a mob that finally sees an opportunity to be in control of the situation unlike the many games they didn’t. Unapologetic and bully people like hypocrites.
: At least you can mute them now. It's too bad the offenders have forgotten this though. It got better when muting was first released.
Wait, you can mute individual people's pings now? I thought it was an all-or-nothing deal.
: Why didn't anyone get exp for this match
Dang, I should have looked at the other threads. I just made a post about not gaining any experience whatsoever just now.

: Honestly, DisguisedToast might be one of my favorite streamers.
Really? I like his Hearthstone but his League seems...salty and mean.
: Where is the math in this? This has nothing to do with math. It's common sense.
Movement speed, attack and defense values both on champions and objectives. Hell, even minions if you really want to get into it.
