: Is there any chance you would allow the queue to let us to just select one role? I don't care if i have to wait a bit longer... I would like the option to only chose one role and wait however long it is to get that one role. The afk checks can be a bit annoying but I really think folks will get the hang of it sooner than later. Love the new champ select for the most part though <3
Forcing people to learn another role is what keeps queue times down. You may have noticed that we don't have TB long queue times anymore, and that's for a reason. ;) It's not about you, its about all the other people who are playing too. As soon as one person can play only one role, everyone will only play one role, and queue times will skyrocket again.

Rioter Comments
: I still don't understand why we can't have USwest servers and USeast servers. EU players have different servers for every corner in Europe
Not enough people. Plus, the diversity gain far outweighs the ping-gain.
: How much of a difference will this make to Canadian players? I live in BC so how much can I expect to see change?
Same as those of us in Seattle: some, but not major
: What does this mean for those of us who are connecting from another country to the NA server? Would ping be different or stay the same? (Currently, I get 155 ping while connecting to the NA server, which spikes to 190 at times)
EU will have better connection times, Oceana will have worse.

I'm pretty sure just the servers are moving. The Development part of the company will not be moving.
Riven4s (NA)
: "Moderate latency increases (up to ~45 ms) in the Pacific Northwest and outlying regions (Hawaii, other Pacific Islands, Japan, etc)" that's some BS... Bellingham, WA (90 miles north of Seattle) ping increases from 32 to 121... how is that "moderate" or "minor"... Chicago to west coast ping is significantly higher than Chicago to the east coast... and not even including alaska, Hawaii, and western canada.... this is a pretty big mistake....I feel like there could have been a better location to move the servers to than Chicago
It won't go up to 121, especially since Seattle is a fiber hub for the PNW.

: Rito, what if you already have all of the champions and we hit reward level 3...
: Is this a good solo queue teir list to get me to gold?
I would cut your list down to 3 per role and focus those champs. Honestly, it's not about variety, it's about quality. You can take a champ into a losing lane and win game if you know how to either duel or pick your duels, or just play the map and team fights correctly.
: How long does it take to rank up?
Honestly, it varries player to player how long it takes to get to a certain rank. It sounds like you should be hitting Gold just fine before end of season. Top-tier players get from Bronze to Plat in as few a week or two of playing, others, like me, take months to get from Silver 5 to Silver 3. It's all about you. On the whole, you're moving pretty fast. Keep it up!

: Tired of getting reported for just having fun... Play whatever champ, lane, you want!
: Am I not allowed to post chat logs for my bans on the boards? o.o
I don't have all the details, but basically, you need to not get so worked up over people feeding in your games. Some kids just want attention and don't care what you think or want. Have your say to let them know you disapprove of their actions or behavior, or letting them know they might have missed something (like the items) but if they don't want your advice, stop giving it and move on. It sucks, but just man/woman it up and move on.
: Am I not allowed to post chat logs for my bans on the boards? o.o
Doesn't say anything about it in the Universal rules. I was just about to give you some feedback.
: how do we have "free will"
Well, according to the Book of Genesis, God only knows 99% of everything. The flood story makes a point of specifying God's surprise at Man's continuing to sin after Jewish version of the Flood story. The view that God knows everything is pre-destination crap and that's a sink hole line of thinking that doesn't do any body any good to prove true. I like to believe God is in it for the ride just like the rest of us, and He doesn't have any better idea of what will happen in the future that we do.
: That's why when you make a new summoner, it asks you to rate your skills with MOBA's. Of course people will just pick noob so they can reck noobs, but that can eliminate some bad experience so you have mostly smurfs playing against mostly smurfs. Why are they called smurfs anyway?

Rioter Comments
Desthro (NA)
: Herr, when CS scores skyrocket from bronze 2 to plat 2, you'll find that that is no longer the case. You just can't play a mage bot lane as support and expect to carry at the upper end. It happens, but not as often as you would like.
You can......Just usually involves the ADC not being good enough to take their cs or kills and you taking them instead.
La Spork (NA)
: My first level 5 mastery is Xerath, AMA
How do you feel about pancakes with boysenberries on top?
: When new HUD comes out
This was brought up, and they said that so many background features were being altered that they couldn't keep the current HUD an option.
: is Ao Shin still in the works?
No, they deemed his model too difficult to manage. They estimated would have more bugs than release Azir and they wouldn't be patchable. It's shelved for at least a couple years until technology improves. I think that's why Bard was made, to fill the lore gap.
: Skarner is so emo
I laughed! I think if the story team could redo his voice, he would make animal sounds. As is, I like his lines because I remember what they used to mean.
: Any chance you could put back the option to listen to Sona music when she is using her Ultimate skin for other summoners? It's gone atm.

: You won't be able to play through it, but we will try some transparency in the store similar to the scoreboard.
That's all we ask for. :D
: As someone who does a bit of everything but who's true calling is support, I completely agree with you. It just gets on my nerves every time I hear that. Sure I'm the support so I have to do it consistently but I'm not the only one who has a ward with me at the beginning of the game.
Same. I feel bad when I go top/mid/adc, upgrade my yellow trink, and in post game I've laid down as many or more wards than our support.
Zyorhist (NA)
: First it is important to realize the assassin is merely doing their job. They are supposed to be able to jump on you and kill you. As another ADC main there are a couple of things I have found to deal with this in a slight way. You need to start by identifying what each assassin can effectively do. For example Diana can't go invisible to jump on you. Use this knowledge to help your positioning. Then you can start to look at what you can do for a fight. Don't go into any fights until you know where their assassin is. You can't fight if they are behind you ready to pounce once they have you in range. Communicate with the CC engines on your team, let them know that you need the assassins CC'd when a fight starts. Many people have a misconception about what ADC's are supposed to do. They think the ADC takes out the squishy targets in a fight, but they are supposed to kill everyone. Its the job of the mage and assassin to take the squishies out. The ADC does sustained damage to whoever they can reach. This means that you are the tank shredder/all around killer. Don't pass by their tanks to go for their squishies, but don't neglect their squishies because they have a tank between you and them. You need to analyze the field and decide who is most important to kill and where you can fight from the safest spot and try to find a medium between the two. Know that the assassins will be looking for you because you are their target and they don't want you to be in the fight. Don't position where they have that chance and wait for CC to hit them before fighting on them. Be ready to change targets from someone to them as soon as they get into your range, and make sure you have someone with CC near you at all times once mid game starts. You are the one they need to be able to secure objectives and if they can't protect you then you wont be there to melt turrets.
This is indeed the role of an ADC and more people need to read this. Maybe make it not a wall of text though.
: I love how Fizz can playful/trickster with a Zilean bomb on him and avoid the dmg .....
zillean in meant to counter the non-mobility champs. He's great for that. Sadly, only that.
: Is frost queen´s claim even worth it?
I prefer the compromise for support ap champs: Start {{item:3303}} , but under no circumstance upgrade it. It is about all you need for a support ap champ and will be a great income item and good stats and damage since you won't be last hitting, but will likely be harassing. I usually sell it around 25 minutes, or when selling it will get me a major item like {{item:1058}} or a full item. I usually will have 500+ gold gained by around 20 minutes when I finally sell it, which is extremely gold efficient but doesn't hold back your real build. But yes, unless you need the slow from Queen for kiting, get a better item. It's all about how you use your items and your playstyle.
Cutham (NA)
: Stuck in Silver But do Better Than Diamond Players????
You play a mean adc, that's for sure. Judging from stats, you do really well. If it's your team that's holding you back, look into how to be effective in making suggestions without coming across as a dick. It's a tough thing to perfect, and you have to learn to bite your tongue more often than speak out, but you seem to be on the road to success.
: You're playing with people that don't understand the concept of the game yet. And probably some bronze smurfs that think they are good but actually aren't lol. Not that i'm good, as i'm silver lol, but yeah... Just buy a boost and farm xp, dont worry about winning, dont worry about other people. Just focus on you. You'll have a better time, i promise. The moment you quit caring about win/loss, the more motivated you'll be to play and the more you'll just focus on your own gameplay, which will help you level up in the end.
Pretty much this. Pre-30, people are just here to play, not win. Don't have high expectations in that queue. Just enjoy your lane, and endure the rest of the game.

DWT12345 (NA)
: Which support should I buy?
Thresh is very rewarding and fun, and also the most frustrating and infuriating, depending on good you are that day for landing skill shots. Lately I've started playing Bard CDR tank, and he is fun as hell! Max Q then E, and you will be so friggen mobile and have such deadly stuns that the enemy won't know what to do with you. Only leave lane to get chimes when you know for 1000000000% certain nobody can get to your adc. If there is even a .000000000001% possiblity of an angle, just stick around and wait for them to back for their BF sword, then go find charms. My average first back is 12 minutes on Bard. :D {{champion:432}} - If Shaco and Gangplank had a love child, it would be Bard. He's really good at shaco levels of movement and avoiding things while also having Gangplank style spell casting and methodology. Excels at skirmishes, kiting, setting up dives, and stopping assassins, but is sort of out-paced in a full on extended team fight. (Tank) {{champion:201}} - A really good champ to defend against sustain divers, like tanks and bruisers. Not that good vs assassins. Really oppressive in lane if not against a poke comp. (Tank) {{champion:117}} - An AA based mage, so you can have abusive poke while defending your carry. Super effective however you build her, so long as she has mana. Excels at kiting and protecting a carry, not so good against poke herself. (mage) {{champion:412}} - An overpowered "I do everything well" support. Hard CC, soft CC, passive AP and armor, mobility, you literally can't go wrong with him, unless you have horrible hooks and flays, then you're pretty much out of it. (Tank)
: Returning to the game after years, some questions
Malz never goes out of style. :P But you should look into Vel'Koz. Lost of spam, and easy as shit to play with a nuke aoe combo due to his passive. You can play him solo or support with great effectiveness.
