LoL player VERY LOW
that may be true but it is still a system that could very easily be exploited you would just need one person to afk in a "lost" match so that the rest of the team doesn't lose as much LP given the still occurring issues of things like win trading or boosters (or smurfs which riot can do jack all about), afkers in ranked matches would become just another problem to add in the pile of reasons to not touch ranked as I stated in a previous post, it would be entirely possible for people to sell afking to players for ranked matches "Yeah I can AFK in your ranked match if it goes south...it'll cost you [insert money/rp here]."

: Verbal aspect is fine. 99% of the time it is accurate. Gameplay will always leave room for desire because there isn't really a clear cut way to determine intent.
pretty much this I doubt there is any system that currently exists that would allow for a 100% "we can now catch those who int feed or troll in games" and even then there's a chance that it would flag people wrongly; thus creating more problems than it solves

There's some judgement about when you can afford to tank one or two rounds to get another body on the board. When direct upgrades may not be necessary in order to win the next round, etc.... Or maybe you've just been unlucky. The nature of the game is such, that this is possible.
if i get 3 pirates, i would say i reroll once per round (so if a wave has 4 rounds in it, i will reroll 4 times) if i don't have pirates, i tend to reroll once or twice per wave when i have spare gold that i either can't put into buying champions or can't put into my exp

Again, you want to play with normal, slightly aggressive economy. Get as many on the board as you can to maximize synergies. Re-roll only a little, when you won't lose interest, or perhaps after another player has been eliminated. Just pick from the what comes up. I have photos of matches where I won 1st and did not equip a single item (you can see them all piled up on my bench). It's rare, but possible. If you're getting gold instead of items, then you want to win on bodies. Use that to get an early bank going. Save the re-rolling for the late game.
to play with any kind of "aggressive" economy I either need 1) 3 Pirates on the field asap or 2) To get a decent team comp that allows me to win fights (which usually costs me gold to reroll to at least get some level 2 champs out so I stand a better chance...given that I'm not getting crap for items) out of all the TFT games I've played I think I've won maybe 3 of them, the rest have been either hard losses in the early game, or losses in the mid-late game [mainly because I couldn't beat the other teams I was fighting due to a lack of gold for rerolls to try and get champs I need, or due to a lack of items...or both in most of those]

so was Apex Legends and then EA fucked that up Riot is slowly turning League more and more greedy I don't know if it is in response to the eventuality that they may need to remove loot boxes from their game (for some countries at any rate) and give out the chance percentages for every item you can get out of loot boxes in others or if it is something else entirely that we aren't seeing but they need to realize this is not the direction the fans want their game to go these Eternals should be purchasable with both BE and RP at all times Having only the common ones pop up in the Essence Emporium (twice a year) is stupid; especially given we never really get a hard time line on when anything is going to happen with League I understand, they are a company, they need to make money That's all well and fine But a simple solution would be to either 86 this idea all together, or allow the purchase of Eternals (common and uniques alike) for BE and RP If they have to make Eternals BE pricey, that's fine; it still leaves the option for them to have it buyable with RP Common ones can be as expensive as new champions (6400) while uniques can be higher prices (12,000+)
Blåsigt (NA)
: Item drops are the real problem. Given that there is still a chance to lose any neutral encounter, coupled with the fact that the monster with the item is unknown, there should be guaranteed items every neutral encounter. It is one thing to deal with random champions, it's another to have a straight item disadvantage. Edit: Further, the items that drop are random, too.
I can kind of deal with the random items what I can't deal with is often the fact that I may be doing horrible and I've got all of 2 or 3 items, while johnny has 10 and they are all just sitting in his storage area

There are only 4 aces in a deck, so if you know someone has 3 aces, then you can at most get 1 ace. Items are kind of guaranteed, just at different stages of the game. There's item bad luck protection, and if you haven't been getting any items, then Raptors will drop 5 items for you. Being able to read the pool and work with what you are given is one of the skills in TFT. It's the same for champs and items.

: Can people actually get punished after just straight leaving the game?
to answer the subject of the post yes to answer the rest League has a "forgiving" feature where if you are in good standing and you derp out of a game (be it for reasons out of your control or because you could) you won't get punished in that instance however your "good standing" is now gone and you need to rebuild it by playing games and not leaving riot will not always inform you if a player you reported got punished; it is meant as a rare feature now, what you mentioned in the last part of your post is a leaver buster. which only occurs if you have a record of leaving games frequently and lasting around 5 games at a rough minimum as for why that instead of a ban, I don't know honestly if a ban is on their punishment list for frequently leaving games; so they go with something easy to dish out automatically that the system can detect could they ban leavers; yes will they; unknown banning a player is usually a last resort for Riot and often only reserved for people that royally dun goofed (and have done so multiple times) League isn't a perfect game, players can dc out of a game just because the client has willed it; or due to shotty internet *that they can't upgrade because they can't afford it, or that is the only internet they can get* So banning a player for something that can often be either be something out of riot's control or the player's control is a touchy subject

there are times when I've played matches and i'm working on 2 or 3 different buffs trying to get champions for them and not getting them yes there are times I will focus on one (mainly because I just need one more to finish it) but generally i'm often getting stuff I don't plan to use/ I only have seen once or twice before/ I can no longer get the buff since lower rarity champions that have that perk don't show up in my shop anymore
: as someone wise said, TFT feels less RNG then the rng involved in getting a normal team mates. in normal league iam constantly getting teams with well give first blood before 3 min, sure sometimes its my fault, but iam talking about from the last 60 games, about 40 loses. That is nutz. So i would say why dafuk we have ranked in league if the match making is broken? and in tft, iam constantly building yordel's like 4/5 or even more games iam yordels. sometimes i get 3 star lulu or veigar or kennen and it happens alot, and sometimes like today i get my yordels at lvl 6, but lose too hard, to turn it around. shiet happens. the only problem is the current meta...
like that at least to me sort of makes sense my main concerns with TFT would be Item drops and champion selection item drops aren't 100% guaranteed in any fashion (and yet somehow someone else has it cranked to like 500%) if they made it more fluid where, as an example; you'd always get 1-2 items per minion round/wave and that you can't get more than that. So off the first minion wave of 2, 3 and 4 creeps at the start of the match you would only get, at max; 2 items period for that entire thing. as for champion selection that's a harder fix removing champions could make it that certain buffs (or levels of buffs) couldn't be obtained; granted I've never personally seen some of the buffs where you have 6 of one type of champion [per your example, Yordle...I think I've seen maybe 3 or 4 max] but the amount we have often makes leveling up some champions once you get so far into a match nigh on impossible (even often if your have the Pirate buff) because they almost never show up in the store roster because your level directly effects what kinds of champions you see
: Which champion has only ONE counter?
to be fair you can often, in some cases, learn to fight your counter as an example I used to always ban Vayne when I played Leona but over time I stopped doing that and if they picked Vayne I would pick Leona so I could learn now about 75% of the time I fight a Vayne as Leona...I can win the fight. I've tweaked my build to better deal with her kit *instead kai'sa now gets my Leona ban*

I say useless because I rarely see good garens granted I don't see many garens to begin with so that doesn't exactly help
: Never played ranked at all. Went into the game blind last week of July/early August of 2018. Only started playing ranked when I hit lvl 30 or 20? in October. I started this season silver 3 and peaked at plat 3 100LP(failed plat 2 promos)
you just contradicted yourself never played ranked but also played ranked in oct last year aside from that; i'd say that's pretty good
: Position your team composition better. I welcome hextech, because it 1. Discourages item stacking 2. Changes the positioning game I like what it has added to the game.
