: I'm confused. What is causing people to lose games again?
Lack of git gud is responsible for 90% of game losses. The other 10% is luck and balance. Therefore why skilled players who play a lot bypass unskilled players who play a lot always in eventual rank.

: There's a difference between "doesn't appeal to me" and "I don't think this character was well-executed". Champions that don't appeal to me is someone like Xayah, who's personality I dislike and motivations I think are hypocritical, but the difference is she is _supposed_ to be like that, and I have no problem with how she was executed on. She just isn't my cup of tea. Skarner's newer lore: I'm not crazy about it, but I take no issue with it from a quality or execution standpoint. Galio's new lore and look I hate--for reasons that I won't get into detail--but I can see the appeal and understand when other people like it. Its very high quality and delivers effectively on the fantasy they chose for him. With Kai'Sa, this is more a combination of "I think the direction was weak" and "I see what they were going for, can see the appeal, but think they failed at delivering on that concept". It's less like asking a Trekkie how they liked the new Star Wars and more like asking a Sonic the Hedgehog fan how they liked Sonic Boom (it was terrible).
Nah she's more like Sonic Adventure 2, some people say it's terrible because it's a 3D Sonic game and those should never exist in their opinion, While others think it's amazing and wish they would make a third one.
: Never claimed I was an expert. This is my opinion, although I think it's at least based in some kind of logic. It must have been a pretty good argument since you didn't respond directly to any of my points. Youtube, Boards and Reddit all represent minority of the playerbase, so basing any "but people like it!" statements on them is always going to be inaccurate. Further, Reddit generally doesn't focus a lot on Story and Visuals, most popular posts are about gameplay and esports (generally, obviously not a hard and fast rule) and are we really using Youtube comments and like/dislike bar to gauge anything? We all know the Youtube comments section is a cesspool by nature. I get it, not every character appeals to everyone. I and many others just had high hopes for the concept of "human escapes from years of living in the Void", and we are disappointed on almost every level. If you like her, then whatever. I don't dislike her. I just think she's disappointing. I don't see why I shouldn't have high expectations when Riot just knocked it out of the park with characters like Swain and Zoe (visuals and story-wise, I don't want to get into gameplay stuff).
Because they knocked it out of the park with this one too it just doesn't appeal to you. It is like asking a Star Trek diehard how they liked the latest Star Wars. And I don't have time to write walls or text like I used to nor would I if I had that time I would be playing video games with it.
: Autofill reduces q time boys...
Autofill has absolutely nothing to do with que times it has to do with Riot wanting to force you to play support or other roles you're inexperienced in. It is 100% about control and has only made the game more toxic since. When playing on my non-boards account earlier I dealt with three games in a row where somebody tried their best at the position they were Auto filled in but started getting mad because they just didn't know how to play it. Resulting in poor performance raging or quitting.
: That's not a problem with autofill. That's a problem with people having shit attitudes.
League of Legends is not going to change human nature or give people massive amounts of experience in roles they don't play.
: Well, my point is that some emphasis is necessary based on the nature of it being a video game, one that isn't focused on story (at least not through gameplay) and a fantasy game at that. She's not a real person, she's not even meant to exist in the real world. Her job is to be engaging on some level, and while I'm not saying a calmer character can't be engaging, she needs more than that. Ivern, Taliyah, Jhin, Camille and the Lamb half of Kindred are all calmer characters in some aspect, yet obviously they have a lot more than just calm and/or focused going for them. My point is also that there is a middle ground where she's not completely dull and uninteresting, but she's not a caricature either. Heck, I think making her a full-on deadpan character a la something from an anime would have worked better. It just feels like they had this really vague direction that changed a few times and the end result feels like it didn't emphasize anything at all, even important aspects of her character and so it falls flat.
Love how everyone is an expert online about how things should be. YT and reddit have positive responses to her, so do some of us "unpopulars" on the boards. The only place I see negative responses are the boards, a place full of hipsters who only like the "unique", the flanderized, the monsters and the extreme. And who hate attractive fem characters and mass appeal. Jhin doesn't appeal to me but this character does, with 140+ champions not everyone is going to like all of them, not every release is for you. I have been waiting for a fem void human since S1 and she couldn't be more perfect.
: Kai'Sa is not a regular women. Also, I know plenty of regular women, and most of them are more excitable than this, even if only slightly.
Well she is not excitable no. She is calm and focused, she had to be to survive. Normal people go crazy from the void which is why they don't survive. But my point is she sounds like a real person, not a flanderized stereotype.
: But..... but I like Kai'sa
No you aren't allowed to like it it's new and it's from riot. It is not flanderized over-the-top or in quotations "unique". You are not allowed to differ from the opinions of the mob rule of the boards. You have to agree with malicious metal and Rubik and that pirate guy or else everyone will descend upon you like vultures.
: I don't get "stoic and grim" from her VO. I got a vibe more like a bored 14 year old being dragged to a family reunion and forced to play a game with his younger cousins. I shall show this in a quick little screenplay I have JUST WRITTEN UP! The part of Kai shall be played by Anthony, a surly 14 year old stuck playing with his more excited cousin, Tim. Anthony: (deadpan and disinterested, holding a plastic gun) "Bam, I shot you Tim. You're dead." Tim. (Wearing a power-rangers outfit) "You're supposed to be the bad guy! Stop sounding like you want to go inside and play on your phone!" Anthony: "I DO want to go inside and play on my phone." Tim: "...." Anthony: "...." Tim: (Just as bored and disinterested now) "Ow. I am dead." (Tim half-assedly falls to the ground. Anthony shrugs and goes inside while pulling out his phone) Anthony: (Deadpan) K, good game. Cya. Fin.
Doesn't sound the slightest bit bored to me. Maybe you just are not used to hearing regular women talk, only flanderized personalities in video games.

: The problem is that we have no idea how Kai'Sai survived in the most horrifying realm of runeterra's universe, the Void itself without going insane.
By becoming calm, cool headed, stoic and grim? Not everyone goes the same cartoony insane fiction overuses.
: Most of the complaints I've seen pertain to how her background of living in the Void doesn't really match with her design or her personality. No one expected her to be loud or boisterous, that's not the issue. The issue is she seems to have suffered no negative consequences from spending time in a place that is supposedly super threatening and messed up. Her body is perfect, she's pretty level-headed. Even little glimpses of mental instability would work. Instead, she could be from pretty much any faction, she's not special to the Void.
Except you know being pretty grim, emotionless and dull? Which sounds like a lot of survivors and victims to me. Instead of typical cartoony shit.

It's not his instincts... it's his suit. There's a difference between hero and survivor though. Super suits can be synonymous with heroes (like with Master Chief, Iron Man, Frozone and Shinji Ikari) but Bear Grylls wouldn't be considered the ultimate survivor if every episode he got an airdropped in a super suit and he used the integrated flamethrower to make his camp fire instead of rubbing sticks together. That's because survivors/survivalist are synonymous practical skills.
Nobody considers Bear Grylls the ultimate survivor. He sleeps in a camper or hotel between takes and has a camera crew and medic with him. He is an entertainer that advises many poor survival techniques and dangerous stunts. You want somebody more geniune on TV watch Survivor Man.

: I am very disappointed with Kai'Sai and her Voice lines.
Why because she is not stereotypically cartoon crazy? She is calm, cool, collected. She survived in the place where you adapt or die. Going crazy is what the weak willed do, they do not survive. Those who suffer trauma often end up quiet, not obnoxious or nutty. They didn't make her obnoxiously edgy or some anime loon. She has more of the survivalist vibe.

This WAS thier chance to MAKE monster champs more popular. Give the players a monster with a personality on the same lol of detail as Jhins and I garen-T you that monster champ popularity gets bumped up by some degree, add to the fact that they are ADD? even more popularity. The issue like they started is connectivity, give a monster a more developed personality and that helps a lot.
People like playing humanoids. In almost every game with the option. And we needed a fem void human
: I don't think that's necessarily true, Khazix and Rengar have always been popular and are both animal monster thingies. It just inherently more difficult to make and invent in a way a non human design that clicks with people, than it is to copy paste another human figure.
: This board would be so much nicer if people learned to detach personal feelings from their arguments

This is a forum about a video game. I find it sad how you guys listen to a community within a site that isn't owned by Riot Games and give less attention to your own boards created by Riot Games.
Probably because the boards are the most biased part of the community? They have to gather information from as many players as possible wherever those players maybe, not specifically from the place you consider best because it shares a lot of your opinions.
: hows about you post public polls (use the client) and if it hits a certain threshold ie 80% of the masses, you go ahead and do whatever it is they say. but you wont, and you will never, because it doesn't meet the wants of the oligarchy in charge.
Business is not a democracy. It is being let off of profit, and the passions and decisions of those who ensure that profit continues. And wow that is not as good in my opinion as a singular individual with a passion, it's a whole lot better than a meme obsessed community full of conflicting and heavily biased opinions, making decisions about anything, like even which socks to wear today.
