: I tihnk i may quite playing toplane honesly. This role suck
As a jungle main that used to powerfarm, I concur that this is no longer a viable strat. The rewards from camps are way too crappy to play this way anymore. You need to be ganking all day.
: Riven can get a -1 AD "hand slap" nerf and /RivenMains will immediately go on a tantrum about how Riot ruined their perfectly balanced champion. At this point Riot is just afraid to touch popular champions like Riven and Yasuo because they are afraid of the backlash.
The game has always been about LCS ratings and skins sales. Nobody that does balance cares about actual balance. Anyone who thinks otherwise is either new or is a fool.

I am having this issue too. Let me know if you find a fix. Always about 96 percent it gets stuck on and i am getting into the game like 5 minutes after everyone else has started

: Then zoom in? Skins are 90% splash arts anyway
If you zoom in, then you lose visualization of the edge of your map so it affects gameplay.

: open letter to Riot; longtime player, extremely dissatisfied with the game's current state.
I would quit. I quit this season and go on the boards once in a while at work just out of interest. I have gotten to play about 30 other video games I normally wouldn't have had time for because of league and have had a lot more fun. League is an addiction that isn't even balanced around people like you. It's made for esports players now. I used to play tank junglers (is that even a thing still?) and last season only 4 champs were viable and the jungle was basically worth nothing at all points in the game so you had no option but to constantly harass lanes. Riot just wants people to get blown up and huge amounts of interaction to get their LCS ratings up.

: I used to play league to relax a bit... now its more frustrating then anything else in my life....
Riot doesn't care. Absolutely everything revolves around Lcs now and their ratings. I've moved on to other games because the staff simply has no desire to improve my experience. I laughed at the confirmation bias comment by rioters because it is true. Those guys abandoned lore for years and now every time they write something they cherry pick the 2 comments that commend them on something and decide to actually communicate about it.

: Riot Balance & Design teams have cured my addiction
Same. I used to play Shyvana in the jungle and have a good time. Now they are nerfing jungle experience to the point where you are better off playing camping junglers because you'll be behind 2-4 levels every game if you actually try to farm jungle. Have fun with your 95% junglers being lee sin and graves, riot.

: Tanks do get picked in LCS, or at least in many pro regions Tanks in team play are far stronger than they are in solo queue because they can dictate engagements, in solo queue you can dictate an engagement but if your backline is braindead, than you just die
If you see a tank in an LCS game, more than likely there are nerfs coming pretty fast because they slow down the pace of the game which Riot feels is bad for the viewer. I've played this game for awhile and I understand what Riot's incentives are for balancing at this point. It's by no means for the general playerbase to enjoy the game.
: As a Tank player, I am currently forced to play Bruisers or Assassins in jungle
Tanks can't be allowed to be good or they might get picked in an LCS game
: Tank items are fine. It’s all the ways to ignore them that’s the issue. Seeing as how every champion has %max hp %missing hp, armor penetrating, mr penetrating, lethality boosting, %penetrating, true damage converting, armor shredding anus destroy 9000 in their kit, tank stats are just worthless.
I agree but there is no way that Riot is going to nerf all of those things so buffing tank items is the only reasonable hope for this season.
Alzon (NA)
: The traditionally optimal item combo for tanks looking to soak as much damage as possible is {{item:3065}} {{item:3110}} {{item:3024}}
I agree. But for champs like Nautilus who have a shield that scales on health and rely heavily on abilities, you really miss not having that early health item and going for frozen heart instead. Plus, frozen heart gives no health for cinderhulk's passive either so it affects a lot of junglers negatively. Right now you HAVE to build frozen heart which I find is limiting and restrictive in building ideally for tanks (especially tank junglers that want the hp for cinderhulk).

: You actually have no clue what you're saying. You basically just said "increase our camps gold and exp so we can farm less and still gank as much" or better yet give us the option to give oppressive ganks or hard farm how does this change anything???
I never said buff camp rewards so that junglers can farm less. Why on earth would they farm less if the jungle was giving out better rewards? If anything they would start farming it more often.
Yasamura (NA)
: Game already in the ground.
: Jungle needs to be straight up nerfed, they received nothing but buffs for the past 3 seasons. Camps need to have lower gold and exp and respawn time so they are on par with laners. Right now junglers can just afk farm full clear and still gank due to such long respawn times and outlevel everybody else with is absolutely ridiculous.
You sound like a good candidate for balance team. Good luck nerfing the jungle camps and seeing how badly junglers start camping each and every lane 24/7. Good way to drive the game into the ground.
: Invictus Gaming skins fan concept
I love these skins but wouldn't this upset the annual tradition of making LCS skins look terrible?
Rioter Comments
Rock MD (NA)
: NA, KR, and BR voted jg as the strongest role according to Meddler's QGT
Yeah jungle's role on the game is way more impactful because farming jungle camps is worthless so everybody has to deal with a jungler that is in their lane 24/7. Junglers themselves aren't strong and they are almost always behind in levels and gold but their impact on the game has never been higher because you HAVE to camp lanes to stay relevant. Riot is dumb so they will nerf junglers because of this and think they fixed things but in reality it will just make things worse and make junglers even more desperate to camp lanes. They just need to make camps worth more to punish junglers for taking ganking risks. I have learned how Riot thinks at this point and can see the bad decisions incoming.
Rioter Comments
: buying skins at all is a complete waste. you get nothing.
I don't even notice when 90 percent of the champions have skins. The game makes you play so zoomed out that I never even notice unless the champ has one unless they are like Sejuani or Nautilus and just huge.
Rioter Comments
: Why Neeko Is Important to me
I can respect that. I do find it funny that in 2018 the most heavily persecuted group is straight white men and if I said I liked a champion because they were like me and had those traits I would probably have my post removed for hate speech.

: I missed when Tanks can be, y'know, TANKS
Tanks will never be viable again because of the mentality at Riot. If there is a tank that could appear in LCS, they will do everything in their power to remove it in favor of getting somebody like Yasuo or Lee Sin in there instead. Tanks are bad for ratings and the game is now being balanced around LCS more than it ever has been as a result. Non pro players keep forgetting that the game is no longer for them.

: Nah man. He gets to hang out with girls like MF, Soraka, and Lux (who he has a crush on). I'd say the guy is scoring, be it points with them or flat out lewd fun once they put Lulu to bed. {{sticker:sg-ezreal}}
This is completely the opposite or somebody who is scoring. This is the feminine male friend that the other girls see as one of them and not a romantic interest. He's also the guy that none of the other guys have any respect for.
Rioter Comments
: You're replies are literally worse than useless or you not bothering to post. They are actively working against your narrative, your flimsy and frankly almost entirely bullshit "point," and they certainly do not reflect well on you, yourself. Perhaps, in the future, consider not posting threads and comments to a discussion board if you clearly aren't at all interested in any sort of actual discussion whatsofuckingever.
: Alright, got an actual argument? Or is this just gonna be a circle jerk? Cause this is what a circle jerk is. No actual arguments, no discussion.
: Not really. If you keep up with clearing your jungle, you'll be just as leveled as your laners for the most part. When you gank, it's the equivalent of roaming, and the pay off is great enough (Farm and a Kill) that it should be at the cost of some of your personal EXP if you mess up or the opponent escapes. I've seen plenty more junglers than Kha, Lee, Graves or Xin in most my games. Edit: No reason saying why you think he's wrong. He's clearly not interested in anything but circlejerking his point. Don't even bother commenting.
: So the legendary lunar eclipse goes to leona...
Yeah this makes no sense. How did Riot screw up not giving them both legendaries?
The Iceborn (EUNE)
: Breathtaking NEW Skins, Lissandra <3
The Lissandra and Leona ones looks great. Rito really struggles with those Diana skins though. She has such bad choices outside of Blood Moon.
: Why do junglers expect to be the same level as laners when all they do is gank nonstop and not even clear? That is absolutely ridiculous. It would be like mid lane not even being in his lane for literally half the game and roaming around and still be the same level as everybody else, that's not how it's supposed to work. And if you really don't feel like ganking at all you can afk powerfarm and outlevel laners if you really wish. And if you are a competent jungler you can successfully gank to get ahead and out level everybody else anyways. Almost every high elo player is crying for a jungle nerf, most challenger players are junglers. The role is so broken to the point where I climbed with jungle even though it is my WORST role. It is an absolutely freelo role.
That's just the point. You can't outlevel laners or even stay even with laners through jungle clears. Even afk powerjunglers will get behind laners because of the poor experience levels in camps right now. The reason that jungle feels so powerful is that they have to sit in lane and gank to stay relevant which makes laners think they are controlling the game. There is no incentive for them to do their clears anymore. Try not ganking and clearing camps and see how far you get at level 4-5 compared to everybody else. Junglers themselves aren't powerful so nerfs to the champions won't solve anything, nor will experience nerfs. There simply needs to be more of a reason for junglers to actually jungle right now.
