: Last night they posted at one point that they were instituting a mandatory 1 hour 30 minute queue time. Which means it's not just filtering people through slowly, it was an intentional act to try reducing the number of players by having a lot of them quit trying to play at all. I had an instant queue all day, up to 10 minutes ago, now they throw it back to throttling to push people away. They would probably be better off disabling TFT until they can figure out what they need to do with their servers
They don't need to figure out what is going wrong, they know what's wrong. They released the game at different times on different servers which meant a lot of immigrant fuckbois came to NA to get early access and ruined for us all. They should have released on all servers at the same time or IP restricted the game so that only NA IP's get to play quickly and delay the non-NA IP's on the server.

Seriously... Same story with every new release/rework... The champion is a few days old on the live servers. Give it time. Yummi brings a completly new dynamic to the laning phase. That alone will take some time to get used to. The champion has potential to be top tier in a coordinated team. Probably not good for Solo queue. I expect her to rise to **at least** 51% win rate in 4 patches time. *** > [{quoted}](name=Anime Fizz,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=Eo4MidWJ,comment-id=,timestamp=2019-05-18T05:29:39.547+0000) > > if someone on your team picks her as its basically 4v5 (and ur bot lane is going to lose hard). No, it's still a 5v5. One of those champions that can't be targeted for most of the game.
yeah once they buff her to be able to come back after taking a smoke break and do one full rotation to burst people out and heal like a soraka/sona hybrid. But that seems like a problematic champion.
: shes a high skill cap support. she also relies on your allies being good to be good.
that's the legit definition of a low skill useless champ, what you are saying is that it only works when your team is better than the other team. High skill? you can play it while reading twitter or name a random task because all you need is a smurf in a low elo game, who can win 2v1 anyways. The only time I saw yummi win was because we had a fed zed and she left bot and helped him roam, but it was not because yummi was good, it was because zed was good and could carry with literally anything else.
: Yummi = you me
It's called cancer from soft inting your lane with a worse version of sona.
: Trials Update: Week One
How are the points counted? Is it per capita or just total because I can tell you right now that the lowest elo, and the majority of the fan base, love the tanks, for obvious reasons, and therefore this thing is going to be United the whole way regardless of increasing points. It is like the houses are a reverse of the ranked ladder skills needed to climb. United (5v5 mid), Warband (win lane), Faceless (adapt to meta and innovate), Council (map control and game knowledge). So I don't see anyone winning besides United unless its per capita, because high tiers will always lose a popularity contest for total points. Btw not hating, just wondering how its counted and if I should even bother checking to see if things change each week.
: SMURFS
I agree that riot should find a way to limit accounts in NA like it is in Korea, maybe through cell phone numbers, as anyone who has a PC has a phone. Also, people who pub stump the lower levels for pride or views create stress for all the other players who are supposed to be matched with people around their skill level. I get it might only be one game here and there but it causes tilt, which cost more games. The final reason is that some smurfs do not care if their accounts get banned and so they troll or are overly toxic leading to people getting tilted or banned on their mains.
: What house am I in? All of them.
I have the exact same problem, some jerk said I must have messed up but I legit was never told to pick a side and then lose the rest. I picked council and all the other missions still said for me to accept, so I did just to clear them out. Now we seem to be in the same house, the purple one, but have all the missions for blue essence.
: Choosing a house
I never clicked yes or no, I just clicked open missions or w/e it was. nothing went away ever and I have all the missions for all the houses. Clearly, it was bugged for me, but I do like how you think it must have been user error and not Riot's client bugging.

: As someone in gold who got chat restricted last season (but worked it off before season ended) I think you should be given the 2 months same as punished people. That being said I don't think punished people should have the 2 months post-season so neither should you but if they got it then you should too.

That's simply not true. Honor has changed every season for the past three seasons and so it's become difficult to understand. In the earlier seasons you would get rewards just for getting the rank and not flaming for the last half of the season. Now you have to earn it back. The honor rules changed and need time to adapt to. People not being skilled is not something that has changed. I was silver in season 2 and plat now. i didn't demand time to get gold then and neither should you.

There were two listed requirements to get ranked rewards - Get to Gold rank and get to Honor 2. If you didn't make either one of those, you didn't get your rewards. If you made it to gold, but weren't at honor 2, you shouldn't get rewards. You knew what the requirements were from the start of the season. Meanwhile, I'm Honor 5, but stuck in Silver. I've never been punished. So I have one part of the rewards requirement, but not the other. I don't get the rewards. So why should someone who made it to gold, but never made the honor requirement be given the opportunity to reach that requirement, when someone like me, who has the honor requirement but didn't make it to gold isn't give the opportunity to reach that requirement? It's like if you rewrote the Aesop fable of the Tortoise and the Hare where when the Tortoise crosses the finish line because the Hare fucked up and took a nap, you declared the Hare the actual winner because you're going to forgive him for taking a nap that close to the finish line.

You can be as honorable as you want but you need to be skilled to get rewards. While you can play a season honorably but make one mistake and lose rewards. that's the difference.
: holy crap, defensive much? i was just trying to clarify, relax little fella
Your use of ellipse suggests otherwise, meaning you had more negative stuff to say but felt like omitting it. Clearly, you were not saying positive things and so it would be impossible for you to claim it was not a negative omission. So it's not defensive when you are countering a hateful comment.
PandaPo (EUW)
: To be honest, this system punished me once too. This vladimir was being cocky and started calling himself challenger and that i was obviously bronze because i died a few times. He was really toxic and he really deserved some words of "gratitude" for his attitude. All in all, I really try to avoid toxic people, would not try to make my words sound toxic though i do say them, I try to tone it down so that they can understand what I'm trying to say. That vladimir should have been punished. I don't even know if he was punished. Dota 2's report system is really great, it tells you if they got punished for their behaviour.
I am leaving anyways, I am just doing this as a test to see if I am right about the community (or what's left of it). it basically falls into three categories, internet trolls, white knights, and the few average joes. The trolls just come here to downvote or try to trigger me. The white knights come here and brag about how they have never been punished by the system and to that I say, so was I until I wasn't, so good luck. And the average joes that want to actually have a conversation are a breath of fresh air but are sadly outnumbered for me to consider staying.
: i dont think he meant that as a good thing...
Doesn't matter. I put several ways for people to add their 2 cents to the conversation. If both you are him are trying to get me angry then you failed. If anything, old league, without all the censorship, has made my skin thicker than malphite's skin and so, if it's passive aggressive flame, it just slides right off.
: Did you make a little announcement for Rioters too? You know the ones getting sued for sexual harassment. The ones fired for sexual misconduct and death threats. > but the Rioters have most of the power to remove accounts, so people should really treat them with respect. Better to earn respect than demand it by threat IMO.

I have been spamming games and getting honors. Still no progress in over 3 days. I get jump updates weekly, making me think it only allows you to progress after a certain time to prevent honor boosting in ARAM's, which is what I have been doing. So if you basically weren't extremely close to honor 2 and its been a while since your last promotion, then you are screwed. Just because you don't get there immediately doesn't mean you're getting no progress. You could be 95% of the way to the level up and not know it. Hell, you could even be eligible for a level up right now, but if they do the checkpoints/levels in waves, you wouldn't get bumped up until the next wave. If they *are* doing this by waves, they most likely will run a last check at the deadline.
No, I am talking about a butt load of honors. Riot has to soft cap it since I was getting progress for almost no honors every game but over a month. I spam games in ARAM get more honors in a week then I get in 3 months. 1 checkpoint then crickets. They even told me that I didn't have enough time to get my honor back but had no idea how much honor I would need to get my honor back. That tells me they slipped up, they said it doesn't require a certain amount of time to climb. But really they are saying that it's about playing a few games and getting honors with no reports over a certain time will get you a checkpoint. It is the only way they wouldn't be able to tell you how much honor you need because it's not a value-based system. It's not getting in trouble and getting some honor over time leads to progress at the end of a given time. That's why spamming ARAM does nothing, they are not the same people so their honors should be very valuable, but I am being stalled because they installed a soft cap to ensure that it takes time, aka, consistently be good and not spamming. If you think about it, it makes sense.

: same situation. 2 week banned in July. didn't want to play for 4 weeks, too busy doing college. why is 3 months of reform not considered enough tho? I wasn't being toxic, I literally didn't use chat and spammed co-op vs AI 3s. I'm about to get gold for the first time and it was for nothing.
the literally same situation, I just posted about this too. I got punished back in the early part of the year. Got plat but didn't get honor level 2 back. Been spamming ARAM's and getting honored a lot. No reports in two weeks and yet I only got 1 checkpoint in all that time. This is anti-fun. I am uninstalling because it's not worth grinding if I end up having a bad day and can't bounce back.
: Just play all day and earn those honors! YOU CAN MAKE IT!!
That's not true. I have been spamming games and getting honors. Still no progress in over 3 days. I get jump updates weekly, making me think it only allows you to progress after a certain time to prevent honor boosting in ARAM's, which is what I have been doing. So if you basically weren't extremely close to honor 2 and its been a while since your last promotion, then you are screwed.
: I only chat if it's very important. Mainly I use pings.
I mainly use the riot approved phrases like GJ, GGWP, and go here, or baron/dragon is up. Not that it matters. I have committed myself to uninstall league after this year. I earned plat and I know it. Doesn't matter if they refuse to give it to me. I was always against inting, afk'ing, troll picking, death threats, and for the most part found personal attacks low. But now the goal post has been moved to the point that I find it surprising that this company is based in the USA where freedom of speech and expression are virtues. Riot spent too much time in Cali and they don't believe in free speech, they believe in their speech, their ideas, and everything else should be censored until they control thought. They are not protecting us from harassment, they are trying to change us. Games are not meant to change us, they are meant to be fun.
: Nobody cares (or should care for that matter) about toxic people. Honor levels aren't a grind either. You either behave and get honor easily or you obsess over it and get angry when it's rightfully taken away from you.
You say that now but Riot is moving the goal post further and further. As I said, the old me was toxic asf and didn't get banned or punished. Then they changed the rules each year to make it stricter and stricter and I eventually got caught. I would say it would be poetic justice if I could spam this in your post a few years from now when Riot's regulations are so strict that you need a list of approved sentences to type and then you get caught. Then I get to tell you how nobody cares, mainly cause the game will have died by then, but more importantly to make you eat your own words. If what I typed up there is toxic then good luck in life, you won't make it far because life will shit on you 100X harder and give no cares about how honorable you were.
: Have you been chatting at all or have your said nothing? I'm implying saying nothing doesn't help you recover.
I only chat if it's very important. Mainly I use pings.
: One short look at the poll says more then your entire wall of text.
: I know there was someone who was posting a few weeks ago that got his Honor unlocked after a week and made it to Honor 1 in like 2 or 3 weeks. I don't think that's unreasonable. My understanding is that if you're using the chat as intended (for gameplay purposes) and not being toxic with it that you'll regain honor faster, but I could be wrong on that.
trust me I have been spamming games in ARAM which is the quickest and easiest way to get honor. No flame, no reports. so far only made it from level 1 to level 1 checkpoint one. Either Riot is lying to me or the hundred or so honors is not enough to even hit level 2 let alone checkpoint 2 of level 1. That is sad and unreasonable.
Snow Crash (EUNE)
: Last week of season = inting acceptable ?
Probably people that lost their rewards and want to drag you down with them. Or they are just extremely frustrated and so they are flipping tables.
: First off lissandra top isn’t a troll pick. It’s been used since season 3. Second I agree that the ability to get from honor 0 to 2 should not be a grind. I’m not exactly sure how fast the honor system rises but it took from Jan of last year to about July to get to honor 5. So I think we need a clear written document or something tell inting us how many points of honor is needed to climb OR it should be lowered so if you get a couple of honors each game and you play about 10 a week you can get to the next check point. Something of the sort. Then that way If you are reported you can climb from honor 0 to 2 if you fell like in July. I’ve never been reported in my 4 years (or at least never said or did anything that would actually deem myself as reportable) so I don’t know what it’s like to lose honor. But with that being said try to find ways to avoid getting reported in the mean time but still allow you to blow off steam.
I talked to Riot about this but they don't seem to understand that asking to be able to recover is not the same as asking for easier rewards. If they want to make levels 3 and up a grind that is fine. But don't make a fall from grace a death sentence.
: Brace yourself. XY comments about how them flamin doesn't matter, only you being toxic matters are comming. I'm toxic as well, so far 6 bans, but I evolved to super toxic yet hard to ban individual, so I would avoid "hardstuck", "report"(many others "trigger" words as well) and you should be good, also spice up things a bit with some sarcasm or irony so it looks better.
The sad part is the season 2 me would always engage in flame wars, but then I realized I lost more games to typing that I could have won had I just muted and moved on. So I have grown a lot which is why I managed to avoid tilt and climb. This is the rare game where I found someone's logic to be so flawed I couldn't avoid the bait. Like this is extremely tame, and compared to any other online game this would just be considered banter. It's only Riot that thinks we should be emotional bubble boys that will die if any harsh words pop our bubble. I only stated facts, liss DC was the real issue and why they were mad. Liss was gone so they felt compelled to yell at me because it's the jungler's job to win them their lane, which is a very weak mindset. Then they insulted my skill so I just ego checked them. I didn't attack them as people, I attacked their match history because they attacked mine, I tried to help them understand their flame because I was that kid at one time. I was harsh, but it was tough love. If they continue to flame better players instead of asking them how to improve then they will remain hard stuck.
Kei143 (NA)
: To respond to you title and the real question. Should Riot be keeping these players? Occasional slip ups are fine, but when you consistently fan the flames (which you did), you become part of the problem.
Did I constantly fan the flames? You can't see what they said and so its hard to show you that what I said was child's play compared to what I received. This was one of a hundred games, the rare case that I get into it with someone and so it is actually very inconsistent. This was that bad game that Riot claims to be understanding about. Which to be fair they didn't demote my honor, just reset my checkpoint in an already hard to climb system. They also didn't inform me of this, I had to submit a ticket to find out.

: lots of kills on enemy players by steal killing roaming jungle camps between waves using item effects to Q multiple minions instead of just 1 minion stealing drakes from your jungler never sharing a lane with an ally buying mobility boots or boots of swiftness and bringing teleport and ghost or something similar like heal etc. getting both damage and movement getting a little bit of attack speed to help with the swing time of the Q and... dont die. http://mullinator.com/tools/cscore?c=236&t=20.00&p=100 idk if that calculator is updated with the most recent patch, but multiply the caster and melee minions by 3 and the siege minions by 6 and that's how much a perfect 20 minute game should give you in creep score bonuses to your Q without even considering champion kills or jungle camps. you're looking at roughly 700+ at 20 minutes without kills or camps.
Wow, you sounded like you knew your stuff, then you said buy items that let you aoe multiple minions at once and I knew you were full of it. You are not a good nasus player nor a nasus player at all since you would have know that only the minion targeted gets counted as a stack and if you aoe the wave the minons die sooner meaning fewer stacks because you have this thing called a cooldown. Build items to get max cdr since it's your only limiting factor, its that simple.
