: basis for their argument over free content in a free game ok
You are a hypocrite. At least you're getting downvoted, that's comforting.
: winrate has been hovering between 52 and 54% for the past 2 weeks or so not op?
Yep. Couldn't possibly be due to the new tank items introduced or the cinderhulk buffs. No, no it's only sej that's op, no other tank is good except sej. In fact, report anyone that tries to tank with any other champ, they obviously trolling because sejuani is the only tank. P.S. 54% isn't even that high, so please educate yourself next time you try to argue with me. Check out Aurelion Sol's jungle win rate on champion.gg. Please make the argument that he's op. I dare you.
: > uses winrate as the only standard of measuring a champions balance ah boards balance team back at it again love it :^)
Yep. Can't possible be due to certain items being overtuned, gotta be the champ and FUCK ANYONE THAT DISAGREES WITH ME I HAVE STATISTICS.

: why do you feel you are owned anything cuz they change the system ?
And why do you feel you should be owed access to literally every possible rune set up just for downloading game? At least people who want reimbursement have an actual basis for their argument...

: So new players reaching level 30 faster than you did, somehow hurts you? Those new players joining ranked will end up somewhere deep in Bronze, they get placed where they belong, why that should affect you? What level 30 perks you are talking about? Being able to use all masteries/ runes? I dont see how new players will have more champs, more skins, more runes than someone who played way longer than them. You can get up to 52 chests per year, how many of those will be champion shards? From my own experience I have around 20% champion shard drop rate, thats 10champion shards per year + you need blue essence, there is a chance to get same shards too. So new players getting less then 10 champions per year out of 138 is a bad thing for older players? Heck no. Game dies when new players stop coming, because then there is nobody to replace those quitting players.
>So new players reaching level 30 faster than you did, somehow hurts you? Absolutely 100% yes. New players reach level 30 without actually learning game mechanics (at least not as well as I did, given that I simply was a more experienced player when I reached level 30). These people hop into ranked and are absolutely terrible. And because their mmr is very unstable, it's not unheard of that they manage to get placed in gold or even a bit higher, where they absolutely ruin games until they slowly adjust back to their deserved mmr. Also, the fact that champs are now free (champ shards) and now so are runes means that new players will have access (and the correct runes to play) many more champs upon reaching level 30. This means that it is likely that instead of being skilled on handful of champs, they will be minimally experienced on a shitload of them, making the new level 30 ranked stigma even worse. >Game dies when new players stop coming, because then there is nobody to replace those quitting players. No, game dies when the hardcore players that advertise the game and get new people to join quit. Casual weekend players simply cannot make a game like this thrive. They don't spend as much money and they don't advertise the game as much. If you make it so hardcore fans feel alienated, you have lost your true fanbase, and the game will eventually follow. TBH, this has been happening for literally years (since Riot sold out to TenCent) and the community has 100% gone to shit since then.
: so either have a player base that will barely grow at all and thus and have a limited pool of income from it or have the player base open to a wider group so you can get an even bigger player base and have more sources of income ??? sure you could say a lot of stuff is "free" in comparison to before loot system was added like last year, but that still requires a player put in many hours/matches of work AND have a good bit of luck to get shards for champs and skins they want. Put that on top of new things being released on a regular basis and the occasional limited time event there will be players who will just throw their money at Riot, especially newer players that might not know better.
Ok, so first of all, the vast majority of Riot's revenue is NOT from micro-transactions. It's from advertisements and events like LCS etc. Second, who do you think is spending more money on the game: casual weekend players, or hardcore 5+ games a day 7 days a week players who have been playing for years? If you alienate hardcore fans, your game dies. That's just common sense. Not to mention, this change really doesn't make the GAME more accessible to anyone, it just allows new players and lazy players to be on the same page with long time, hardworking people. >but that still requires a player put in many hours/matches of work AND have a good bit of luck to get shards for champs and skins they want This statement is incorrect. These are free, however you want to look at it. Riot gives you in-game currency (IP) after every game. Now, they also give you a chance at a completely free champion shard for which you do not have to spend a single IP. Luck is irrelevant, play enough, you will get champ shards. And as for the "get the champ that you want" well this is literally just another bullshit claim that a free-to-play game isn't free enough for you.
: What an idiotic comparison. You're trying to tell me the 0/9 Fiora that just went afk mid game is the equivalent to someone not talking in champ select?
No, but it is the same as the guy who instalocks wukong top without paying any attention to our teamcomp and runs ignite, despite the fact that the next pick after him was a yorick who would've won the game easily via split push and literally 3 ppl were telling this guy to switch to teleport.
Rioter Comments
Doodlzzz (NA)
: Draven is out of control
Nah, keep it this way. I enjoy when games are decided at the 5 minute mark in favor of whichever team manages to get a {{item:3147}} first, really makes for some interesting and engaging gameplay experiences. edit: that was sarcasm
: I don't care if Riot ever compensates me for runes/pages
Honestly, the reason most of us are pissed off about this change is that it's yet another step toward the mass casualization of this game. Gone are the days where a League player could be proud of the hard work they put in to earn in-game items. Now shit is literally being handed to people. You just get all the runes for free. Champs come free in the form of champ shards (which can be rerolled or combined with essence for a 100% free champ). Hell, even skins are pretty much free now (albeit these actually require some work). A new player can hit level 30 and already have basically all the perks of a player that has invested years into the game, and that is just ridiculous. And with how fast new players can hit level 30 now, that just makes ranked a complete shit show. Riot for some reason has chosen to take this game into the ground. With these changes, any longtime hardcore fans that still bother to stick around will be completely alienated, and once your hardcore fans are gone, your game is dead.
: he has very little mobility. Q isn't really a mobility spell. It's like a kalista hop without the ranged attack attached to it and then has a mini self cc at the end. Also his E can only last up to 1.5 seconds while in combat.
The Q can easily be used to dodge most if not all skill shots (maybe ezreal ult is big enough that he can't completely get out of the way of a well placed one). And he has incredible mobility. While the E is primarily out-of-combat mobility, you really can't give champs in-combat and out-of-combat mobility or they end up being ridiculous (ie pre rift limp kassadin).
: Buying Runes Between Now and Preseason
>So here's our plan: when preseason arrives we'll refund all the IP you've spent on runes since May 30th, 2017 So I guess fk me for buying all my runes years ago. K >But what about rune pages, you ask? The plan is for your rune pages to carry over into the new runes system, so prices on rune pages aren't being changed and they won't be refunded. _**The difference is you'll be able to edit them in champ select.**_ So basically, you don't need extra rune pages at all. Man, do I feel great about spending RP (REAL FKIN MONEY) on rune pages. Address this right now, people who spent actual real money on this deserve compensation and you know it.
: Riot is keeping the current rune page system just so they won't have to refund rune pages.
>The difference is you'll be able to edit them in champ select. So what you're saying is that the Rune Pages I bought with RP were a 100% waste of money. Kewl. TY rito. Great business model you have here, plz make some more fizz and teemo skins, they don't have enough.

Zerenza (NA)
: Making Kayn's Q a Double Cast Ability.
Right, because a guy that can WALK THROUGH WALLS FOR UP TO 10 SECONDS WITH +70% BONUS MOVESPEED WITH SLOW IMMUNITY needs more mobility.
: Well shit, that's where it stops then. Clearly you're the bravest guy/gal playing this game and these other pussies won't say shit irl.
Dude you are literally contradicting what has become basically the rule of the internet. That's the reason internet communities have become so toxic. People can say whatever the hell they want without repercussions because they are posting anonymously. Same situation here. Most people don't want their name associated with poor sportsmanship or other forms of negative behavior, but you don't need to worry about that when people only know you buy an ign.
: Then if people can get "baited" this easily then there really is an issue. LOL has a plethora of other problems besides just ggez. I get the poor sportsmanship thing but there will never be a solution on an online game. People can hide behind their screens and say whatever they want. Trying to stop that is like trying to stop illegal streaming sites, or pirated products. You can never win that battle. Kill one source , three more pop up. Even if there was a voice chat it wouldn't be so bad as you still have to listen to the other person's voice (and less likely to do it ). You admitted that such a simple statement can cause baiting. You are admitting exactly what they want to do. Completely ignore it if it bothers you so much. Remember no publicity is bad publicity. The more attention you bring to these issues the more people will do them. That is kind-of how kids work (I am assuming it is the youth population that is the main culprit here.) You keep telling them no but they will do the complete opposite. I personally think it is a really weak offense especially if you are going to punish it on the same level as boosting, cheating and hate speech. You can't tell me it is on the same level as that. I am not trying to defend people who do it, but just laugh it off because everyone knows that people who say it are bona-fide scrubs who probably did jack shit to help their team win (or they are just congratulating Ezreal, who knows.)
If one person gets baited by this, it's a problem. Don't you understand the concept of principle?
: True enough, but it is not typically a violation to gloat even in traditional sports, post game, with obvious exceptions. Excess celebration isn't saying GG ez, in my opinion you're reaching. Even with quoting the code, nothing about the phrase is noted specifically nor any example given. What i'm saying is this is not an obvious, definitive breach of the code every time it's said, and that is evident in the way saying this is currently handled through consequence, i.e. basically it isn't, except when people are obviously take it too far. Maybe Riot should do more about it, seeing as it should be more punishable, I wouldn't be against it myself. But at the moment saying "stop saying GG" is an opinion, don't make it sound like it isn't
Excessive celebration is actually the irl equivalent to saying "ez". You are asserting your success at the expense of your opponent. Same thing.
: And why wouldn't they?
Because very rarely do people ACTUALLY show sportsmanship this bad at this level of consistency. The majority wouldn't have the balls to make a real confrontation in real life. Same for many people on the internet.
: Not quite, I didn't say getting 'victimized' (lol) made you a shitty person, all I said was it tells me more about you than whoever provoked you. More like that you have a frightening lack of control of your own emotions and reactions, and other similar things of that nature. And lets keep it in perspective, the 'out of the way' the person went to offend you was typing 4 letters...in the chat you are not required to participate in...in a free online game...get a grip dude.
This is literally victim blaming. Not saying I personally feel like a victim because some 5 year old says ggez, but still.
Zeref (NA)
: I used to say GGEZ or "close game" whenever I get completely roflstomped in a onesided game. I don't know, it's just funny to me. I haven't said it for a while now but imo no one should let that 4 letter phrase get under their skin. If someone from the opposing team said it to my team, I just laugh it out. If that tilts you, then you probably need to stop playing the game til you are in a better mood. League is a sport but it is also still a game, where people go to have fun. Losing is an inevitable part of every game and it's either one or the other.
Saying it when you lose is one thing. But saying when you win is just fucking toxic.
: You tell people that saying ggez is bad, that they're all a bunch of coward keyboard Warriors and shit people because they hide behind their screen. Are your not doing the same thing then?
No, because I would readily say the same thing to their faces.

You're response to a forum post was literally "grow a pair". My response stands.
: There are penalties in league too for bad conduct, but as I mentioned this game as a sport functions differently than other sports and so comparing them directly is not always the best way to go about it. Also fyi, in traditional sports trash talking is not an offense. There are verbal misconducts but they are similar to what league already has in it's rules, i.e. racial slurs, sexual remarks, etc. So, these sports actually already function in the same way when it comes to verbal misconduct, although I will say that league can do better when it comes to straight up harrassment through chat, GG ez not being at the top of the list imo. Hope that is more clear
>Also fyi, in traditional sports trash talking is not an offense. This is demonstrably false. The NFL, for example, has an unsportsmanlike conduct violation that includes such things as excessive celebration. Other sports have similar rules.
Ba Vhalk (NA)
: Smurfing goes the wrong way
I mean, here's the issue: you are boosting his hidden mmr to the point where you guys only get matched with other smurfs. Had you just let him go on his own and given him guidance instead of babysitting him, he'd be at an mmr range where he'd mostly only get other new players.
Bârd (NA)
: Blitzcrank has a huge disconnect between his lore and his gameplay.
Not as bad as {{champion:266}} . Lore claims he's super aggressive, effortlessly skilled in combat, and serves to rally whichever side he chooses to victory. In reality, he's a slow clunky hybrid of a bunch of other champs that, despite the lore being almost entirely focused on his ability to "buff" his allies, has not a single ally buff skill.
: Assuming someone is a coward in real life by how they speak on the internet. What a mature assumption.
Athletes rarely if ever say things like this after a conventional sporting event. Ergo, the reason this behavior is reserved for the internet must be the anonymity that comes with online communities. TBH this is pretty basic common sense shit...
: it's really not that bad. It's 4 letters you see for like 5 seconds on average. Stop comparing it to sports, they have nothing to do with it. And you think they never BM? You can't honestly believe that. > eSports (also known as electronic sports, esports, e-sports, competitive (video) gaming, professional (video) gaming, or pro gaming) are a form of competition that is facilitated by electronic systems, particularly video games. so no this isn't sports, it's competition. > Just because you're a coward that can only confront people from the anonymity of your keyboard doesn't give you the right to be a shit person. stop being a hypocrite.
You are simply conflating the word "sports" with "athletics". Separate these mentally and you'll see that League fits the very basic definition of a team sport. >hy·poc·ri·sy həˈpäkrəsē/Submit noun the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform; pretense. When exactly did I do this?
: To be fair, people do not openly sabotage and troll in traditional sports as they do online. This is a sport but it is quite different in so many ways. I see no problem saying something like "ez top" at the end of a game to an enemy that's been all chatting things along the lines of "you suck" to me or a teammate all game.
>To be fair, people do not openly sabotage Yes, because this is usually a violation of the rules of the game. And just fyi, some sports do have penalties for unsporstmanlike conduct.

It's not about how toxic the phrase is. It's just shit sportsmanship. This is a sport. If ever someone said this after an MLB game Stopped right there. You obviously have very little active knowledge of the kind of things a catcher says to a batter with the sole intention of getting inside his head (or as you may call it, being a dick). And that's _**in person**_. I'm done here.
As someone who has played baseball for well over a decade AND HAS A BROTHER WHO IS THE CATCHER FOR A DIVISION 1 COLLEGE TEAM I can tell you that you couldn't be more incorrect. Also, just to prove the fact that you know nothing about baseball, THE UMPIRE IS LITERALLY STANDING INCHES FROM THE CATCHER. Many umpires are sticklers for manners. You don't shit talk around the ump unless you want to get tossed. And the DEFINITELY do toss players/coaches for shit talking and poor sportsmanship (ie excessive cursing when you stirke/gound/fly out, arguing calls, etc).
: really surprised this many people agree with this. this gives me more faith in the community
Same. I figured I'd get downvoted...
: Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, Deion Sanders, and Kobe Bryant...just to name a few: Some of the greatest of all time in their respective sports, and also some of the most notorious trash talkers of all time. And it has nothing to do with 'need', some players do it for strategy, heck, some just do it for fun. Once again, a person's reaction to provocation says a lot more about that person than the one instigating, to me.
So let me get this straight: you think that if someone goes out of their way to offend you, and you happen to get offended, YOU are the shittier person for being the victim? Wow...
: https://media.giphy.com/media/11oawy6BNEBjhu/giphy.gif anybody remember this? Literally the exact same as saying 'GGEZ', but IN PERSON. Nobody punched anybody, nobody shot anybody, and nobody (involved) killed themselves over it. So the debate over what it says about the person who says "GGEZ" is a real one, but to claim that it only happens because of 'keyboard warriors' is both untrue and ignorant. Trash talk is as much a part of sports as anything. If you can't handle it, then I personally believe that says a lot more about YOU as a person than the trash talkers themselves. That being said, when the governing body of an competition deems something to be over the line, then it is no longer in the players hands to handle those situations, only to monitor and report them. If 4 letters are that tilting to you, then don't read post game chat? GGEZ
Ya, and then in an interview with Stephen A Smith that Skip Bayless (who apparently criticized his abundant lack of sportsmanship) that he was to address him as "All-Pro Stanford graduate" and then proceeded to claim that Skip Bayless that he had not accomplished anything. Just watch the interview, it's hilarious how out of line Sherman is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6x-O3kb1sI Point is, no one punched him, but he was NOT well-liked for it. Also, please remember that shit talking to a camera after the game has ended and the losing team is gone is not the same as walking up to an opposing player who has just been defeated and rubbing it in their face. No doubt in my mind that if he did that, he would have been on his ass in a matter of seconds.

: show me ONE case where somebody was punished with only ggez in the chat and I'll believe u. I say "gg SO ez" pretty often and I'm not afraid to say it in person too cus I'm autistic. And no saying ggez in an MLB would not make a brawl, it happens all the time. I hope you live a very long life, good day.

Danjeng (NA)
: I don't think it's punishable. That part in the Summoner's Code is only a guideline for good sportsmanship. You will not receive any penalty for typing those 4 letters. Anyway, you shouldn't type it because you are a respectable player, not because you are afraid of punishment. Also, you seem aggressive with how you address those people who do type "ggez". I would rather have someone who does type "ggez" than being talked to in that tone you're using. >Just because you're a coward that can only confront people from the anonymity of your keyboard doesn't give you the right to be a shit person. Stop with this cancer. NOW.
I was pretty tilted when I made this post tbh...
: Than HOCKEY? Are you kidding me? I'm sorry mate but you're just outright wrong on this one lol Not to say baseball players aren't dedicated and skilled, but the amount of things you need to be good at ALONE renders Hockey more difficult when compared to baseball. Frankly, if you're claiming Baseball requires more skill, it just sounds like you like it better. It outright objectively does not, watching a single practice or game would show you that. what do you think the hockey players spend all that time working with their stick for? NOT "perfecting their swing"? lol
Take it from someone who has played both sports for literally over a decade: baseball requires more skill. Hockey is a different kind of sport. It requires much more endurance and physicality, and certainly lots of skill yes, but there is a reason that people say (and literally anyone who knows sports says this): "the hardest thing to do in sports is hit a baseball".
: Well I didn't think so earlier, but now I do think you're being overly sensitive. "Ggez is evil, malignant, and spreads destructively." Get a grip on your emotions man.
I am using simply definitions to define a term. You are using opinions. Who has a stronger case?
0ctavia (NA)
: Hmm... I am new and I do not understand what the point of saying a game result was easy (EZ). It seems unintelligent to say something like that because it is a phrase that does not take into consideration both teams, and that often you play with the ones you are playing against which means that you are insulting the community in general with a lack of consideration for others. It makes me think that the ones saying such a phrase must suck at the game and take those moments to taunt others if they win in order to feel a superiority to them because they are use to taking a loss. I would wager that the best players will not say this stuff since they have to keep a good public image for sponsorship and PR reasons. I think there is a lack of intellectual understanding of this game and while I learn more about the game this is becoming apparent. I would not say I am particularly good at the game at this point because I have only played a couple months. I am taking time to learn each champion and understand how the skills work. I don't have a main yet and in general it seems like the game will die when competitors match the game play and have a more harmonious gaming community. I get bored really fast with trolls and lack of sportsmanship - it is a daunting and unpleasant waste of time. My advice regarding this is to simply ignore it because what it looks like is they're insecure and need to feel superior and those that say it are basic people with little to contribute to the community.
It's not really the phrase itself that bothers me, it's the intent of the people who say it. In general, they are just trying to elicit a response. The issue here is that if they succeed, you can very easily be banned for lashing out against this. It's happened to me personally.

It's not about how toxic the phrase is. It's just shit sportsmanship. This is a sport. Stopped reading here. No, video games are not (and never will be) a sport. I agree that people should stop saying "ggez" as it's just being a giant Richard, but hinging your argument on the game being a sport is a very poor way to go about this message. No matter how much you down-vote people that don't share your opinion, no matter how much recognition your movement gets, video games will never be a sport, because they're not. They're entertainment.
E-sport is still a sport bud. And what do you think "real" sports are for? Do they contribute meaningfully to society? no? Oh, you mean they exist for ENTERTAINMENT too??? RRRRREEEEAAAAALLLLYYYY....
: Then grow some thicker skin. Is it annoying? Yes? But if saying GGEZ is "toxic" then the community needs to grow up. I almost never talk to my opponents. But I really do not care what they have to say. IF the person who says it then ignore it. IF you respond and give them fuel, you are only incetivising for them to do it more. You gave them a reaction which is why they keep saying it. And for your MLB reference, do you see how salty people get when Puig pimps his homers. If we live in a world where you get tilted by GGEZ then get your priorites straight. BTW I never say it but seeing some fool say it gives me a good laugh. Just get over it.
I mean, poor sportsmanship in general is disgusting, but I generally won't make a forum post because someone is a bad sport. The issue with this example is that anyone using the phrase "ggez" or a derivation thereof is doing so with the express purpose of eliciting some kind of toxic response. The are basically report baiting people, and you DEFINITELY can get banned if you shit talk them back (it has happened to me, I know this better than most). THAT'S why I hate this. Because they are basically just trolling for reports, and that can actually get people into real trouble beyond just getting tilted.

: The Instant Feedback System. It's automated. It can pull up those logs easily, since it's all recorded. Again, it's rude, and yes it's against the Summoner's Code, but one small infraction is not going to earn a chat restriction, let alone a ban. There's a tier system, and before "tier 1", the 10-game chat restriction, you have to be pretty toxic. "ggez" just isn't toxic enough to warrant a punishment in most cases. That said, most people who would say "ggez" are also toxic in other ways, so chances are they'll be getting escalating punishments over time anyway.
>It's automated. It can pull up those logs easily, since it's all recorded. I know it's automated, and I hate that it is but that's for a different discussion. Please show me where Riot specifically said they are now reviewing pre/post game chat, because I know for a fact that they never did. And the problem with saying "ggez" is not that it is in and of itself overtly offensive, but it's a deliberate attempt to incite toxicity from other players. It accomplishes literally nothing but a bit of self gratification, but it can really cause other people to tilt off the table. Inciting toxicity is, in and of itself, very toxic.

I always tell Riot to review post game chat, yet I have yet to receive notification of a ban after doing so. This tells me it's not working. And you can make the argument that "you don't always get that notification". Ya, but I play A LOT of games and I've NEVER gotten notification of punishment after an endgame offense. >you can't handle someone saying gg ez as a joke and want to punch them in the face You are an ass faced buffoon. Was I joking or am I being serious? What, you can't tell? Same thing with ggez. And not once did I say I wanted to punch anyone in the face. Do not slander me or my argument due to your illiteracy.
