All these people talking about how communication is important. https://media.tenor.co/images/db26709894273e1fb9adad5e1759d461/raw (not sure if this image is gonna work) I literally win most if not all my games by perma-muting everyone (outside of mid lane because of the very rare chance someone actually calls mia) and emotes and playing the game. You don't need to type, Do baron. You just ping spam it. You don't need to type, play aggressive, you ping the target. 70% of the games you play are going to be filled with toxicity, shit talk, immature kids who still think that "That's what she said" jokes are funny and the occasional dick joke. It's honestly better for everyone if you could just mute all chats in general.

Cailus (NA)
: I don't think aram bans were a good thing. It's aram, if a champ is broken in aram, just nerf that champ a little. Bans would take more 30 seconds in a game that was supposed to be fast paced, and remember, it's not just about the 30 seconds, but after that some people might dodge (which a lot of them do in those kind of games [URF, aram, etc])...

: I don't have an ARAM account and I thought the bans sucked. This is why: if someone has an ARAM account, they focus on unlocking all the strong ARAM champs, then they only have to avoid the freebie champs for the week who are shit in that game mode. There are substantially more than ten good ARAM champs, so odds were still pretty good they would land on someone strong. On the other hand, I'm a regular player who enjoys ARAM sometimes and has unlocked a few ARAM-friendly champs when I was sitting on a ton of IP/BE. Most of my picks, however, are my support champs or champs who seem like they might be fun to learn someday. When several good ARAM champs I own get banned, the odds I wind up with someone who isn't at least moderately handicapped in the mode drop substantially. And since I'm a support main, many of those "someday" champs I own are ADCs who are quite good in ARAM. Someone who mains top lane with a melee focus and only has a handful of ARAM-friendly champs could lose nearly all access to someone strong during bans. Likewise for mid-main assassin players and so on. Removing bans is more beneficial, both mathematically and in simple feel, for regular players far more than ARAM-only monsters. BTW, your "totally fked opposing team" has Skarner, Kindred, and LeBlanc. None of those are good in ARAM. If this is your example of the terribleness that is a no-ban ARAM setting, it's hard to sympathize with your complaint.

Ether you're going to actively try to shut down those kind of accounts or you're not. Removing banned champions is 100% catering to those accounts. I have all the champions and I think banning in ARAM goes against what ARAM is. I also think an ARAM account is a myth. The term ARAM account has been blown way out of proportion when you consider that ARAM picks from your champions, the weeks free champions and the prior weeks champions. You can collect the good champs and give yourself better odds but peoples freak outs are way over blown.

There are flat out people who legitimately have accounts that only have the best of the best champions to play on ARAM just so they'll consistently be able to use them. Just so they can always have a huge advantage. Bans normally helped against that. Now they're gone. If you're playing vs god tier ARAM champions multiple times in a row, that is a not a coincidence. I can 100% bet everything and the farm, that if you're playing {{champion:555}} {{champion:110}} {{champion:115}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:11}} {{champion:99}} more than two or three times in a row, it's not bad luck. You're playing vs ARAM accounts.

Hotarµ (NA)
: If any late game champion is going to receive early-game or mid-game buffs, they need power shifted _from_ their late game power to those places, not given free buffs. Blatantly adding power (even if it's something as small as mana cost reductions or CD reductions) isn't a good idea since it makes them go from a late game champion to a **good-at-all-points** champion.

But that's the thing I'm saying. I'm not looking for her to be GOOD at early game. Nasus has a bad early game, but he can still be ganked because he has a really strong slow and actually still can add some damage with Spirit Fire and his Q. Kayle isn't even good to gank because she neither provides CC or Damage.

: You know which type of people are Sensitive when they cant handle being called trash in a video game
This is all just a troll trap. The argument being used is that people shouldn't be so sensitive to being called trash. But the other argument is that you shouldn't be calling someone trash in the first place. It's a battle of the initiator vs the receiver. The receiver could be a bit more thick skinned, but if the person never initiates in the first place, then there's no need for it. If a person called you trash on the street, that person would probably be eating their teeth. Just because there's a million miles between you and the other person, doesn't excuse simple human social decency.
: How is Riven balanced?
I call it the "Metaknight" theory. Back when Super Smash Bros Brawl came out, Metaknight was not considered OP. He was hard to use and hard to master, due to his lack of reliable kill moves and fairly light body, he wasn't all that popular when the game came out. However, as things moved forward players figured out just how ridiculously OP his kit was. Along with a million exploits and kill set ups and flat out 0 - death combos, Metaknight became the most overpowered character in the history of Smash Bros, to the point where even characters from other genres were being compared to him. However, if you didn't know how to use those incredibly complicated moves then you were going to suck with him.... horribly. Riven is the same way. If you aren't using all the animation cancelling and efficient uses of her abilities and passive, you're gonna suck. ....that being said. Once you've mastered every single bit of animation canceling trick, yeah Riven is possibly the most broken and OP champion in the game. However, the players that can perfectly use every single one of her abilities and exploits are very very rare. For Riot to nerf a champion that only a very small handful of players benefit completely from, is just not efficient of a choice on a business level. A nerf to riven at this point will only make the bad riven players MUCH worse and the godlike Riven players will also feel quite slighted since their numbers are so minor. It makes sense to try and keep a champion like Jax and Irelia under control rather than Riven.

: A game cannot grow bigger forever
You're absolutely right. With every new remake/champion/item, a whole bunch of issues and problems arise. League has become a torrent of issues that simply can't be ignored. Every single champion tips the game in a direction. The slightest change could be the difference between a champion falling off the map and becoming pick or ban. I genuinely do believe that Riot should just put a lock on champions and remakes and just focus purely on balancing, focus on really getting the matchmaking and other problems fixed. League has come a long way from Season 1, but eventually one day, they're going to need to work on a League of Legends 2, or a new IP altogether.

: We are straying away from what the support role should be.
Okay so I legit just looked at your match history and saw that you only play mid and adc and have not once played a single game as support. Not a single game. I saw very rarely that you play top. In fact you play pretty damn hard carry roles. Jinx, Zoe, Tristana etc. I thought you were at least a person who liked to play traditional supports, but no, you're an ADC/Mid main. And not once have you played a single game as support. Coming from a person who is a support main and has played support during the dark ages, when supports were just heal bots and flame fuel, the lane where if you were last pick, you were support because NO ONE wanted to play it, I personally do not want the support role to EVER go back to where it was before. Looking at your post now that I've seen that you're a ADC/Mid main? I'm sorry but I can't help but see it in a different light now. Ether you A) Don't want to get nuked by high damage supports anymore (which is a very understandable reason mind you) or B) You just want all the kills and all the glory botlane and you just want people to play regular defensive supports so that you don't have to play quite as hard if you didn't have one. I'm sorry, but after just recently supporting two different ADC mains, with Lulu, who made the dumbest mistakes ever and obviously blamed me for it, I cannot sympathize with you at all. If I'm playing a traditional support, I'm at the mercy of the skill of my ADC. If the ADC is an idiot and/or is bad, then I'm not getting gold, I'm not getting assists, I'm not getting anything and I'm pretty useless for the majority of the early game, until I can roam and actually start supporting the team instead of supporting my very stupid 1/6 ADC who constantly pings ????? on me when they make a dumbass mistake and can only say that it's their support's fault. So no, I'd much rather play a high damage support like, Brand, Zyra, Neeko. Because they don't need their ADC. If my ADC is good, we win and I'm still doing damage. If my ADC is crap, oh well, I can roam midlane and still do damage and still get gold and still get assists and most importantly, I still have fun. So if "We are straying away from what the support role should be" means that we're straying away from the support role being a toxic, SLAVE role who is at the mercy of their ADC, then hell yes. Stray as far away from it as possible. {{sticker:sg-ahri-3}}
: We are straying away from what the support role should be.
To be fair, for a while supports just weren't fun. Yes the supporting role should be devoted to playing defense, but then we get right back to how things were back in the dark ages of supports. Where supports were just the lame, boring, thankless unsung hero of the lane while the glory hogging ADC gobbles up all the credit. Yes champions like {{champion:555}} simply shouldn't exist, but that being said, you feel like you're impactful. He's a fun champion because you aren't an unsung hero. You're a carrying support and your team and the enemy team will know who carrying (or throwing) the hardest. Even if it's unpractical, most people would much rather go 5/2/2 then go 1/6/40, even if it's obvious that the latter is doing far better. Even with defensive champions like {{champion:12}} {{champion:201}} {{champion:412}} {{champion:89}} you have to rely on your ADC to follow up to apply the damage. And if said ADC only wants to farm and tells you to stop engaging because they don't want to fight, you just sit back and sigh. With champions like {{champion:143}} {{champion:101}} {{champion:63}} {{champion:26}}, you are the damage. You don't need to rely on your ADC to pay attention. You do the damage, you get the kills etc.

Complaining about her at this stage is just laugable. Also, just because 1 ability in Akali’s kit is strong doesn’t mean Akali’s rework was a failure.
