: Why don't we do what Blizzard does?
Because this is League of Legends, not Heroes of the Storm or Defense of the Ancients 2. The formula that works for one game, doesn't necessarily always work for another. The reason new champions are normally known to be 'OP' on release is because nobody knows how to play them effectively, what build works and why, which lane to go in with (i.e. if they figure out if they can Jungle and or go in a different lane than what Riot says). Also the fact that you're spending a lot of IP (or RP?) for something that is brand new and should be pretty powerful for what it's worth, they want to make that purchase mean something to the player. The majority of players might not have enough IP to spend, so spending 7300 IP on something has to be good... Right? I think Taliyah is a good example for why your request doesn't work. Well in my opinion, Riot has no clue how to buff a champion without messing something up. This is pretty much apparent after seeing the Marksmen & Juggernaut updates. Personally Taliyah was handled terribly. She's exactly what happens when you release a 'weak but playable' champion. Everyone says she needs a buff, so they hotfix her with buffs moments later, increase health and give her a new effects slowly over time reducing things here and there, then finally they start slowly nerfing her... The last update she got was on 6.24 and that was a Hotfix. To me, that isn't a good patch history. Especially since her pick rate is around 1.92% (on OP.gg). If a champion is good from the start, there is at least a chance they will still be played again later on if heavily nerfed. {{champion:421}} This is how I see it at least. Please don't get me wrong, I'm totally for the idea of a champion being moderately weak but still playable, I just don't want another champion that falls off the face of the Earth because nobody liked the champion on release so they get a shit ton of buffs and Riot doesn't realize they over-buff them... Which can cause more problems. This is a completely different game, remember. Unlike HotS, you have to take in consideration of why something needs to be looked at: * What level/rank are they? * What items were they using? * What lane were they in? * What Runes and Masteries did they use? * Were they just fed? I do remember watching a short video on how they handle buffs and nerfs and this was vaguely something like this list.

My guess is that because you didn't verify your email someone got hold of your account and changed the information/email to the account to get said account, or something along those lines. I'm no expert on hacking into accounts, but I've been having this happen to me pretty recently where I see someone requesting a password change in my emails... Mainly my Steam account. > They told me that it was banned due to protective services They're probably concerned about the activity on that account, most likely failed login attempts or location differences being off. > and I should submit a ticket for reclaiming my account. What can I do from now on? Well you should Submit a Ticket [here](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new), probably under 'I need help recovering my account.' Good luck.

: Don't play if you don't want to win.
>Past 3 games i've had people on my team say gg within 5 minutes of the game going on. Then 2 of us say that we could win, and they respond with "I'd rather just afk and wait 20 minutes." For some reason that sentence reminded me of lyrics from System of a Down's song 'Aerials'. "Cause we are the ones that want to play, Always want to go, But you never want to stay, And we are the ones that want to choose, Always want to play, But you never want to lose." --- I don't understand the people who give up so easily. My brother is the same way actually, when I play Smash Bros. with him for example; he'll just stop playing entirely half way through the game and give up if I'm slightly doing better than him... He just lays back and stops moving or attacking, which makes me feel awful because I don't have many friends to play offline games with. I guess it's his age? Being 16 might have something to do with it. I dunno.

: Seeing Shen being VU'd with his update, please tell me Akali is be VU'd with hers as well
Her model is fine, not terrible. But I do think she does need a small VU. Compared to Taric and Yorick, Akali is fine to me.
: Do the same for Kog Edit: Any particular reason why, or are people just going to keep downvoting because they don't want Kog to improve from being the weakest ADC atm?
I didn't downvote, but I think it's because that Kog's ult is in short bursts at any point and no point do you need a zoom-out for his ult as it stands right now. The reason Jhin's ult zooms out is because the shots stop at champions, so seeing where you are and the enemy is crucial. Same reason can go for Xerath - as it might not work in a sense that it's rather large, plus the fact that it's a circle so unless it were to snap to your mouse I don't see it happening. Jhin's ult is in a cone, so it's a bit easier to implement such a feature.

: Okay I get the appeal, but you have to understand the massive cost this would be. You are essentially tracking down all the voice actors (assuming you can even get them again, or they want to do it again, or they are even alive) flying them over here, and then paying them to utter 1 line of dialogue for honestly what? Something that might make you grin once or twice before you stop noticing it. It's a fun idea, but it won't work unless they used in game lines that exist already.
Yeah, I completely agree. If they were going as far as adding 'ban' lines, I honestly feel they should do a Smite thing (From watching, I haven't played) - where the champion in question says 'missing' or 'be careful' ping, so at least give an auto que beyond the same sound. Awesome ideas in concept, but terrible in how much time and effort just to get all them to do the voices again. --- Oh and the part where you said "flying them over here" --- I don't think Riot has a specific location when it comes to recording voices, but I may be wrong. I was watching an interview a while back and heard one of the voice actors say that he was recording in a different location than the other guy. It was kid of hard to believe since the quality sounded the same, but you never know.

I wanted to do that for years after the first time I ate something that wouldn't let me go, but I had to really badly.

The dance isn't as memorable or is remotely related to Scarecrows.

Yes, _already._ As in this response doesn't need to be made. :/ I know everyone hates Yasuo from the begging because: * No mana * Low cooldowns * Two type of defenses * Dashes I'm just saying I used to hate him because I was pretty bad and toxic back when. But playing enough of the game while trying to be the better man, is what I try to accomplish. Just recently a Shaco in an ARAM of mine was typing ''rekt'' every time someone died to him or he dies. It's annoying but things like that I want to avoid. :| Even if they hate playing against the champion.

: my bad, meant yoshi, But both starting with Y threw me off. I despise yoshi because of how safe he can be, where its best to punish him after a special attack, like his ground pound or egg roll, but that can be difficult because of aoe damage and speed, not to mention that running grab can get you mid roll, and is extremely quick.
I play him because I feel safe. I used to play Pikachu on the N64 to Brawl, but now I play Yoshi because I don't feel Pikachu isn't that good in Sm4sh... :/ It's my personal opinion but I dunno. Also, Yoshi can be completely negated from projectiles and knowing when he Down-Specials is what can make or break a Yoshi game. Plus his Side-Special is so useless I barely see anyone use it. His Neutral game is awesome, and his dash attack punishes rolling players like no other (because I hate people who Dodge Roll instead of walking, they look like idiots.) --- basically, Yoshi is fun. That's all that matters. :l

: For Xerath's ult, the size of the blasts are 3x as large but the travel time is also increased by the same amount. They are really annoying to land, I don't mind that people can dodge when they are trying but at least make them have to move out of the way. I think it would help out the zone control aspects of it, firing in front of your opponents to force them to back into your team. Also how cool would it be to fire some off then walk into a fight so you can do stuff while magical meteors rain down.
