A range of 2 hexes covers every area on your drawing from point A, and its visually intuitive that the more narrow space is still roughly a unit long. A range of 2 squares from the middle of a 5x5 grid would miss the corners, making clarity a problem. Hexes get rid of the diagonal problem of squares and are just visually better for 360 degree movement.
: It's called "geometry". Imagine instead of hexagons, it were squares, like a checkerboard. A unit that is one square north of you and unit that is one square northwest of you, while both still adjacent to you, are not the same distance away from you. The one that is diagonal from you is farther away. Likewise with hexagons, if a unit is two "hexes" away, how far away it _actually_ is depends on what direction those two hexes are.

Just because they are not the same game does not mean they don't deserve those rewards. And who cares if they get a free skin. It's a skin. Everyone gold and up gets that dumb skin. And they won't show their boarders in normal because rank TFT is seperate from league rank. Their borders already show up in normal............. lol. That's the thing though.... getting to or past plat in TFT is much easier than 5v5 ranked. It's dumb. Well obviously the less exclusive the rewards becomes (see victorious skins) then yes obviously the dumber it becomes. That's why giving out those skins to now new only TFT players is dumb because you make the reward even less exclusive and therefore less meaningful. Really not rocket science.... two different queues for two completely different games. 5v5 is Riot's bread and butter and should be treated that way. Can make up some unique reward for TFT & leave their borders to tft and it will be ok. Combining rewards is going to just make more people quit playing League myself included.

: This is why Hextech Debuff needs Rework.
Needs a complete rework. Just played a game where a few people threw in 2 hextechs just for the buff, and I got matched against them back to back to back. They all disabled my carry Shyvana (as opposed to my less-carry Gnar on the other side), and I came in 5th after steamrolling the entire first half of the game.
: These 2 players wiped my team off the earth , please explain what is wrong.
Yeah, the Garen was a wasted slot since you didn't even have 3 Nobles or 2 Knights out. That's probably the biggest disadvantage. Never have a 1-cost unit out that late if they don't have any synergy.

Full item drops were possible before, but there would only be one in a carousel. They lowered the RNG by making more full item drops available at once in the later stages.

Depends how you do in them. I won my first provisional (3rd) and started in Iron 2, so I probably have the potential to start in Bronze if I don't lose any.

: I guess the question is "what is considered equitable first rounds outcomes?" Is it zero items, better luck next time? Is it one items, good luck? Is it 2 items, there ya go? Is it 3+ items, grats? Is it zero items, but here's 2g to compensate? I think they have a vision that may not be fully realized. In one of my matches, I picked up a Lucian on the carousel. I got zero items from the first wave, but I got 1gold. On the first flip, I had 2 Elises show up, so I sold Lucian, bought 2 Elises, and also had gold lefover to buy an additional card. It worked out well for several moments of the game, but in the end, I couldn't keep up. But that had a lot more to do with how the cards and my decisions played out from that point. I guess the question really is: how much gold is one item worth and are people who don't get an item getting enough gold? Seems to me items > gold.

Graves, bro. Elise with Thornmail and BT is pretty fun. Giving her RFC on top of it sounds hilarious, but I never put items on her over Cho or Shyv anymore. The Gnar/Shyv/Elise combo is pretty great.

He's a rat in a robot, there's not much you can do with him other than making his robot look differently, even so there's nothing that makes him stand out one skin from another, no good thematic to make him stand out.

Kai'sa on the other hand has such a simple base design that she can be placed in anything and look good.

Please remember that when most people refer to a juggernaut being too tanky, they're not calling them a tank by literal definition. The people that argue about the definition when they understand the context (and I feel like most do) are in the same class as those that say "I diDNt KnOw yOu WeRe oN tHe tEam!" when a sports fan says "we".

At least in the upper tier of ARAM where they've climbed with high win rates. I had a top 0.7% ARAM MMR according to 3rd party (not exact, but still gives an estimate), and there were accounts in nearly every game. It's easy to find them just by looking at the match histories of people that roll free week/OP champions in your match. Riot won't unlock all champions in ARAM, because more accounts = more skin purchases. Adding bans makes it look like they care while stilling pulling in the money, which is all they want anyway.
