: If you cannot queue up as a duo, you should not be in the same game
They will never fix ranked because they never think it's broken. Ranked has been garbage since this game released and not a single person who works on the ranked system gives a flying fuck if it feels good as long as people queue for ranked. Just stop queueing for it at all. It's amazing how queueing for normals you never have these extremes. Ranked is a scam.

I keep damage text off, it's just clutter.
: The hair is not the most disturbing part about Qiyana's design
Y'all are just whiney as fuck. The champion looks cool, the proportions are fine. Every champion that comes out has a bunch of you supposed creative geniuses to critique their characters and it's just nonsense that you complain about. None of you know the first thing about creating characters and think everything is generic if it isn't some obscure dumb shit from some anime nobody cares about. Get the fuck over yourself with these critiques of champion releases. Played this game every season since the game came out, haven't had an issue with any of there characters.
: Ranked 2019 — /dev Update #3
So tired of blatant lies when it comes to ranked. I've seen not one post, youtube video, Twitch streamer, tweet, or otherwise that would even remotely communicate that this ranked system is in a good state. It has never, not one time, been in a good state. I've played this game since season 1. Ranked is trash. It's not transparent, and does not feel good to play. If I reach gold, I want to play and see gold. Regardless of what mathematician at your office who thinks his uber neat algorithm is working well, and the ignorant yes men next to him telling him it's okay, it's not. Just match me with and against gold only (or whatever my rank is). I don't care what division. Make the system make sense from the outside, otherwise it's frustrating, regardless of whether you think it works. Let's not talk about the clear ramp up of asshole players in ranked who find the need to type more than they last hit or ward. The stark difference from normal game atmosphere and ranked is ridiculous. The simple fact is players are not discouraged from raging or tilting in ranked. They come into queues, already pissed from last game, looking for a reason to start letting loose on people. If it's more rampant in ranked, it needs to be punished harder and quicker. Lastly, let's talk about solo queue being anything but. Why is duo queue allowed in solo queue? It is abused every season in one form or another. The players who abuse it are never punished because it's part of the system you created. The whole motto "League is more enjoyable with friends" holds no weight here when the whole point of ranked is to uphold the competitive integrity of the game and see who's the better player. There is NO way to properly calculate the relative skill of two players working together from champ select verse a blank slate of players on the enemy. There's no enjoyment from a mid jungle bullying an enemy jungler who queued solo or a support/adc voice comming perfect engages against two randoms picking whatever their good at. You can't state ranked is in a good place when you are choosing fun over competitive integrity in ranked. As it stands, the current system makes me not want to touch this game.

: PPl are just too used to old aatrox. The reworked one is a completely new champion and I love it too. He is a bit too overpowered right now but he is incredibly fun and has nice abilities. (I played one bot game and then immediately took him to ranked with absolutely no trouble, he is pretty op) I play him as a tank, with tank runes, items that support his healing like spirit visage, death stance and he will be tankier than Sion. With incredible cc, damage, amazing passive (if timed) and a super useful ult.

Pure tank would still be good with w and q cc. Glad to see more people like him.

Why in the flip flap fluke-ity fluck must we wear the ugliest, most uninspired icons to participate in these missions you so badly want us to rather than the 500 other icons you're trying to sell us? I don't want to use the Project Illuminati skin icon to participate in the games content. Additionally, why are all the missions just basic "play the game normally and eventually you'll get this reward" and not something actually interesting or engaging? Why not some randomly generated missions like "Land 10 hooks as Blitzcrank" or other champion specific missions to get people to branch out from their mains? I also have gotten massively less skin shards in boxes since the change so if it wasn't intentional, maybe check if the code accidentally lowered the chance or text up RNJesus and let him know I could use some help. Side note, I love the League Display release. Pass it to the homies.
: Less magic resist is basically the answer. People would often take scaling MR runes which gave them a whopping 27 MR lategame. We no longer have that. Also mages still get a butt-ton of AP to start with so basically they're all kind of glass cannons now until they build resistances.

: The biggest mistakes you make that cost you Elo
Feels like people are defending one tricks, but no one is using any reasoning. One tricking can help you get past parts of your game that aren't great, but it's a bandaid fix. First thing, it's not going to get you to diamond with silver mechanics and game sense. One tricking shores up one of the many facets that makes a complete and good player. No one said you can't one trick, but you are not becoming a better play by doing so. This game is about improvement and so i my post. In my opinion, one tricking is not going to help you get better at the game, it will only become a crutch and a deterrent from you reaching your full potential.
: > 3. One tricking or ignoring team comp – You never want to pigeonhole your win conditions to one strategy. One tricking can end up with heavy ad or ap comps, which means you have a time limit to win on. Any game can turn to a clown fiesta and go late, never bank on an early win. On the same note, having a wide champion pool but of all the same damage type and role is detrimental as well. Sometimes you can work with the team, but you letting them play their best champ and style increases their morale and play. I don't think this is too bad. Team comp matters much less than people think, especially below masters. One-tricking is pretty helpful when you consider 1. It's better to play a champion that doesn't fit the comp but you can play very well than picking a good champion that you can't play.

It's better to play a champion that doesn't fit the comp but you can play very well than picking a good champion that you can't play. I don't like the mindset of learning a gimmick that will taper off at higher Elos, rather than learning to be a all around better player. One tricking can be just as easy a reason to lose if you count in the times it gets banned or picked before you get it. If you don't have anything that plays at that level, you've essentially thrown that game. You can one trick, I'm just not a fan of it.

This is the problem that the Voice Actor of GP had, he was dissapointed to see that Riot changed the Voice actors of the characters that he did without even talking with him. I mean, Riot can do whatever they want with their champions... But is kinda sad that they dont take into account the original voice actors when making VU. Edit: I tried to find the source of the post where he talks about it... but it seems that it was deleted. But here is the quote: > > Hey everybody, I'm the guy that voiced the original Gangplank, Taric and Heimerdinger. Just the other day I learned that they had hired someone else to do a new Gangplank voice, without ever even contacting me. Needless to say I was disappointed. I was even more disappointed after I heard the new recordings. Seems like a poor copy of what I originally did. I have always been very proud of my Gangplank voice work. I would have hoped that those of us who created the character voices when LOL was just a gleam in someone's eye would have gotten more respect for the quality of our work and been the first to be contacted for upgrades now that's it's such a huge success. What do you think about old vs new Gangplank voice? And do you care if suddenly a favorite character has a different voice? If it was you, wouldn't you hope that you could do very good work for a fledgling company and then not be pushed aside when they hit it big?

The thing is I'm pretty sure Galio's VA did multiple works for Riot. This is not like a random person who did the original work. More than that is the fact that they didn't even go for something close, personality or sound wise. It's just a complete revamp and it just sounds bad. Plain and simple. I can't stand how bad it sounds. I don't care about the kit, but the body of work as a personality shouldn't be so badly butchered. Graves kit got wrecked but at least he kept the same orgasmic voice over he originally had. This is just going way too far.
: Voice actors have contracts - if you write up a contract like 6 years ago for a voice actor, that contract for their services only applies until they finish recording what you hired them for. You have to schedule studio visits, do multiple recordings, and overall coordinate many things when it comes to voice acting. And that's just for a one time gig. Fast forward to present time. That voice actor could no longer be working, or if he is, he may not want the role. It could have been just a paycheck to get by back then, and now it could be small peanuts compared to his other work. He could be in an actor's union and have limitations on who employs him or maybe Riot wasn't willing to hire him at his current fee. Furthermore, if the actor *hated* that particular role or if Riot disliked working with that actor, why would he reprise it? There are so many factors as to why the same voice actor wouldn't have or couldn't have returned to do the new vocals, and that's just from their end. It could be as simple as Riot wanted new vocals in a direction that differed from before. So think before you speak, because the world of business and acting isn't as simple as you think or are making it out to be.

So think before you speak, because the world of business and acting isn't as simple as you think or are making it out to be. They can rehire voice actors. This is not even remotely of an excuse. There is also enough voice actors to get someone to sound like the original work. They didn't even try. The new voice actor simply sounds disgustingly like garbage. Sorry but this guy who voice acted shouldn't even have a job. His voice sounds like claws to a chalkboard. You don't replace Morgan Freeman with Iggy Azalea... simple as that. And that's exactly what they did. You can't get him? Go get someone who actually sounds good. Why pick a person who sounds like trash. This is more than not taking the same person, but to pick someone who is so awfully bad and indifferent to the original character is disrespectful.
