People dont post on here to thank riot usually and tell them their doing a goodjob. There is a thing called the loud minority and the silent majorityl

: me too, any solution yet??
Not that I know of! What is your internet service provider?
: It is not the same mistake as losing any other dragon it is the mistake of losing elder. The buff gives your team an execute. The other mistakes they made did not almost cost them game like them missing elder did. Its called Risk/Reward. They risked waiting for elder and the other team was rewarded for them stalling.
I missed Smite on Fire Drake. I missed Smite on Elder Drake. Functionally, this is the same mistake.

That made me laugh.
: Elder Dragon Unnecessary
Interesting idea, feel free to weigh in, what if Elder gave the Dragon Soul instead of a short buff. That would be interesting.
: Oh this is a bug that's been in the game since the last update. Yeah Riot themselves openly stated (In their only statement on the issue btw) that this is a bug that they have no idea how it starts or how/when they are gonna to be able to fix it.
Sounds like their statement on the "minions spawning causes massive performance decreases" bug of yesteryear. Might you have a link to their statement?

: Lol, riots gonna kill the game if they don't do something as well... Very few people seem happy with the current state of the game.
Contextually, people say that every preseason. I for one will look to the past to guide my reaction in the present. Let's just give our feedback and see what happens in January. This last season was good.
BigFBear (EUW)
: I feel the same with the changes on Aftershock. I used to play Voli Offtank/Bruiser-Style in Jungle with: {{item:1401}} {{item:3800}} {{item:3053}} But now it forces me to buy resi-items. I can understand that they don't want squishy champs pick Aftershock so they get resis for free but what is with actual Offtanks/Juggernauts (in Jungle)? Aren't we allowed to play items like {{item:3053}} or {{item:3083}} anymore?? Why don't they connect the Aftershock Resistance to bonus HP instead of Armor/MR? Sadly there is no other Tankrune I can pick in the Jungle. Resolve definitely needs more rune choices because it's full of weird niche runes that are only viable for very specific champs/roles. As tanky jungler for example there is often only one rune in each row that is kinda viable. Actually no freedom of choice. More like hardcore cookie cutter. As Jungler: Grasp = Lane Rune Guardian = Support Rune Only choice: Aftershock Shield Bash = Weird Niche Rune Demolish = More a Lane Rune (kinda viable but feels odd as Jungler) Only choice = Font of Life (which feels very odd as an all-in Juggernaut/Offtank because it's so "supportish" without a buff for yourself) Bone Plating = Lane Rune Second Wind = Lane Rune/Weak af Only Choice = Conditioning (which feels also odd if you want to play Steraks etc. and not full resistance Rammus style) Revitalize = Niche rune for Champs with self-heal/shield Unflinching = Viable Overgrowth = Viable I have the feeling that no one at Riot plays Resolve in Jungle. Otherwise they would know.
This is a nitpick, but I for one love Demolish on Junglers. It's a miniature Rift Herald!
Draehl (NA)
: Riot, Can You Make Building Offtank More Viable?
Simple fix. Bring us back to the days where Iceborn Gauntlet had 30 AP attached to it. Give us items that gave mediocre damage and mediocre survivability, which made them good because you could now fill two roles.
: The problem comes into play when you realize that items that previously gave gold generation and _weren't_ balanced for supports were so good, people reported you for trolling if you didn't buy all of them. If you make the items "support only," well, I ask you, what constitutes a support? There are many champions who can be played support or in another lane/role. Vel'Koz, Brand, Lux, and Senna immediately come to mind, just to name a few. If you limit it to the champions who generally play support, they'll be picked in other lanes more and the items will still be abused in a roundabout way. If you limit them to people who are selected as the support in champion select by the system, what happens if the support and another laner decide to lane swap? There is no official system in place for that, though I think that there should be. And even then, what about picks such as Miss Fortune support that the pros used as a counter pick to Zyra a few years ago? Locking them to support leaves them with a wide variety of "what-ifs" that easily can come up, not to mention that they would have to add in an exception for each of these items in the code to allow a new champion designed for support to take them. Supports have a wide enough range of champions that they can't just make them melee or range only, and a wide enough variety of summoner spells that they can't just limit them to if you've taken exhaust, and on top of that, champions in middle lane also frequently take both exhaust and ignite. Unless they designed a summoner spell for support specifically that was detrimental enough for other roles that they wouldn't take it, but still appealing enough for supports to want to take it over all of their other options, similar to what Smite is for junglers, there just isn't a way to limit them to "the person who's playing support role." Balancing the items to be detrimental enough to other roles, in the current case, their gold generation over the course of the game, is the only real way to even attempt to make gold income items work. They could remove gold income items entirely and just bring back Sightstone, 800 gold for some HP and 3 wards that refilled when you based, but that would also be counterintuitive, as the supports would then no longer have gold income, and support items would have to have their costs lowered as a means of making them cost effective from the support's perspective. Which would make them abusable for other roles because now you have items that are 150-200% gold efficient from the perspective of another role. Then all of support itemization would have to be balanced with the other roles in mind to make sure that the stats they give can't be abused. See how this keeps looping around? No, making them balanced from the perspective of the support by limiting the gold that other roles get using the item is the only balanced way to make it work. And yes, they will take some time to balance out just right. But increasing gold income is a risky thing in a game like League of Legends.
GigglesO (NA)
: At this point, they should just remove gold gen. Make all gold and exp evenly distributed to the team... Fucking done...
We can't do that, because then the game will lose popularity because reward is not palpable. Then, Riot will stop patching the game and it will fade into obscurity! Oh wait, phew, that's just Heroes of the Storm...
: I literally have seen Elder Dragon 1 time in my last 20 + games. maybe more than that. maybe closer to 30? not even sure. but it almost never shows up. yeah it is an auto win and its fucking op as hell. but its condition to spawn is pretty insane. a team has to have 4 drakes already and THEN it spawns. if you can't win with a soul and control of the map to get 4 drakes early on then you deserve to lose. its honestly more of a last chance button for a losing team. You are losing the game? they can't close out just yet? well now you get one last shot to fight over elder. get that and you might be able to wipe them or get some control of the game. I think its hideously broken but they know that and they accordingly made it pretty hard to spawn.
I have only seen it once, and we lost the game once we got it. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
: In plat 1, I've played about 20 games so far and have yet to see a single team get elder. So I'm not that worried about how strong it is lmao
Thank you! I've only seen Elder once, and we lost the game because of a Yuumi/Jhin/Master Yi comp.

: Or learn how to control objectives when being ahead. Not taking the dragon soul is a terrible idea.
I mean, if I have a Nunu on the enemy team and we are wildly ahead, I might not want to take the chance of being outsmited. It's a tactical decision.
: Jungle is a mess
I am a Jungle main, and I endorse this message.
: Jungle Nerfed a bit too hard, needs xp back
> It makes the jungle role just less desirable, mid and top seem more fun in the current patch but there's something special about jungle and I'd like to not see it be run into the ground and get nerfed even more. Honestly? This is the most convincing argument you made, and I was convinced by everything you said!
BlackXIV (EUW)
: They make 2 points: 1. Increasing the stakes lategame by not allowing full-builds to carry wards is intended 2. They plan a larger structural change to how vision works and that adding a pink slot would just be a band-aid solution This statement does generate some questions when you turn on your brain thou. How does the issue require a solution if it's not a problem but an intended lategame mechanic? How healthy and fun is it to run out of vision exactly when you need it the most? Can you really choose to give up your 6th item for 2 pink wards on many roles/champions? Since when Riot's policy in updates is contrary to band-aids? Intended or not, do we have to like it? I smell bull droppings
I will forsake my final item in favor of red wards *on every non-carry role,* meaning that I only have five item slots and a dedicated ward slot. It's time that we stop treating vision like this janky submechanic of League of Legends. Vision *is* League of Legends.

: So are we just not gonna talk about New Red and Blue Buffs?
New buff bar symbol? Yes, please, get rid of the MS Paint Icon. New buff ring around my champion? Oh, I didn't realize that *I* had blue!
: Now that Worlds is over, can Lee Sin get nerfed?
If I don't ban Lee Sin, I see Lee Sin; if I don't ban Master Yi, I see Master Yi.
JPlayah (NA)
: New support items are literally institutionalized poverty
> 2. Give us more options for placing (and maybe clearing) wards. Vision should be a dynamic game with opportunities for everyone to contribute, not a burden heaped on one player in a specific role. I briefly flashed back to having to buy Sightstone on supports AND Junglers (my two preferred roles).

I wish I could upvote this, and almost every single comment on this post, hundreds of times.
klin537 (NA)
: yeah its so annoying how they nerfed the jungle over and over again saying that "junglers are too powerful" and I think their goal is to get us to farm more instead of spam gank. I don't think they realized that with the jungle nerfed so badly, we actually get more exp from spam ganking than if we just farmed continuously.
Season 5 Preseason: "Jungle camps don't feel impactful and homogenize the Jungle to only allow Junglers with average ganks and amazing powerfarming. They now spawn less but grant more experience to allow Junglers to impact lanes more often without finding themselves outleveled by the support should the gank not result in a kill." Season 10 Preseason: "You know what? Let's go back to the Season 4 Jungle." I still believe that Season 5 was the best Jungle we have ever had, after they released Cinderhulk and Runeglaive, of course.

People on the forums are generally the angry and malcontent minority of the League community. I think that it's important to have some positive passion to offset the negative every now and then. I could imagine how disparaging these forums would be to a dev.

: I tired to log on at 12 my time said there was maintenance same back IN A FEW HOURS at 2 still said maintenance. Came back at 6 logged on got an update downloaded but my account wasn't actually signed in. No skins no mastery ect. Closed the game tried to reload it had to restart my computer came back at 7 and now theres heavy traffic. So I DID wait a few hours xD
Remember that one time that you could log in multiple times and enter multiple games at once? That was a weird time...

I knew I'd get a response like this. I'm not really interested in arguing with you. Who do you play?

: I want to know why the core first item is a damage steroid. What was actually wrong with the mage items before you streamlined {{item:3285}} to be the core first buy in the game???
You do realize that every AP item is a damage steroid, right? Did you know that AP stands for "Ability POWER"?
: Happy 10 years!!! Enjoi this client that STILL DOESNT WORK!
JoshTGW (NA)
: Honestly, this launcher has been broken for a while, but this is somewhat the extent of what the problems with the current one can do. The most recent patch broke it almost completely and it's obvious that Riot needs to upgrade/replace their launcher with a more clean and fluid-like program that works really well. Also, it's not completely broken, it's just taking A LONG TIME to load. Mine finally loaded up after like 10 minutes or so. Most PC games nowadays have launchers that are far more superior to this and work with barely any issues. I'm not saying the League launcher is riddled with bugs, but there are noticeable ones that do cause almost significant issues, like the Champion select/ban functionality which sometimes doesn't let you pick anything for a random amount of time. I understand that money and time are a factor for Riot, but they need to focus their attentions on bug fixes and upgrading the game, and its launcher, or they're gonna fall FAR behind the game developers they're competing against in the gaming industry.
Funnily enough, the League Launcher is still superior to the Epic Games Launcher.

I'm having the same issue, although now League won't even open.

Riot Jag (NA)
: Teemo changes temporarily on PBE for early feedback
Teemo's biggest contribution was map control with shrooms, which prioritized him building CDR. He split Nashor's with Luden's and Liandry's to cap out a three item build. Both this rework and Teemo on the live patch have an identity crisis with his mushrooms and his on-hit-oriented basic abilities. This rework emphasizes using mushrooms as a combat spell to amp his passive, but they still take forever to arm unless they are in brush. So I ask, what is his build supposed to be now and how is this making him less item-dependent? I understand that in teamfights he is supposed to play the role of a skirmisher (similar to Ekko or the intended play pattern for Rek'Sai), but currently I see every aspect of his kit being outperformed by other champions. Where are you supposed to play this Teemo, into what matchups, and why are you so insistent on keeping W the same? Move Quick is the most linear, boring ability in the game. If you put Move Quick on a new champion, the media crapstorm would blot out the sun. So I ask that you reanalyze Move Quick and E. Consider merging them together or giving Teemo something meaningful on W that interacts with either his bush synergies or his mushrooms (since mushrooms and Q already interact with his passive). Here is MY suggestion, and one that would give players very meaningful ways to interact with shrooms. **W Give Teemo a shroom-exclusive Gnar bounce. Ranking it increases the amount of shrooms that you can vault over by one and the distance you dash. Pre-6, since you have no shrooms, it acts as a basic repositioning tool.**
: There is no such thing as damage creep, look at the new runes, all the offensive runes have more gold value than the defensive runes, definitely not by accident.

That's because it takes more offense to overcome less defense. Get a Frozen Heart and watch as a three item Zed can no longer kill you through your one item. You gotta be ahead for your damage to do much, hence why ADCs need to be babysat.

: I need a coach for Nunu & Willump JG!! Please ^^
Lemme look at your match history real quick... Okay, you're going AP, that's the problem. Not only are you going AP, but you're then building...tank? after getting Runic Echoes? To get used to the kid, I would go full tank with Resolve first. Once you're used to it, THEN try going AP. As for playstyle, you need to control objectives. You can outsmite almost anyone and should be using that to your advantage. Whenever possible, steal the big raptor away from the enemy Jungler. Keep track of buff timers to try and steal red/blue and invade when you spot them on a ward. Maintain control of scuttles and most of all, GANK! Nunu's ganks are very powerful, especially when you lane gank. Your "combo" as Nunu is to gank with snowball, hit E twice and walk up to them, and then press R. As the R channel continues, the E will end and they'll be rooted, allowing you to get the full charge off.

PvE is key. You don't want to ever feel the urge to flame someone if that's what you're trying to avoid by winding down. Things that depend on you and solely you, like exercise or single player games, are what you want to do. Read a book!
