: Riot Games is such a joke
{{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}} Bye
: Wake up to find ARURF missing.
It's not a surprise though. They said It was lasting til around mid-February, as long as the Mecha Kingdoms event was up. Every time they have a major event, a RGM will also come up.
: ARURF Gone?
It was scheduled to come down. It was only supposed to last as long as the Mecha Kingdoms event.
: Lets see... 1: It was announced as an unfinished alpha. They never gave us a product even close to a finished one. 2: Ranked took priority over it 3: The missions were repetitious grindfests that not only required you to spam games but also to win random rewards, and then USE those rewards an ungodly high amount of times (Crashing a sled into champions 100+ times sucked) 4: Semi limited event pool - i managed to get games where i had the same first, second, and third events. Same with limited or OP prizes Riot doomed it to fail right before they released the “alpha” of TFT with all new assets, graphics, gameplay physics, items, etc. when NB had a hodgepodge terraformed SR-clone map. Fucking *free rotation gamemodes* got more map changes than NB - look at Odyssey, PROJECT: Overdrive, Star Guardian: Invasion, etc. got more polish than NB did on either of its **two** alpha phases

This is 100% accurate. Especially when compared with other game modes which were FAR more along in their own assets than NB ever got.

Yup! It's amazing combo for champions who have sustain damage and don't have superrrr viable slows in their kits, notably Malz and Zyra!

: should Zed's R be nerfed or am I just bad at countering him
Depending on who you're playing, you can deal with Zed's R fairly well (champions that can punish him for getting close, shield themselves, leap away from him to cause him to miss things, etc). Otherwise, you're purely working with outsmarting and proper itemization. **First, look at his ult-->** He presses R, and it takes 0.6 seconds of untargetablity for himself to show up behind you (following you during that time). He always shows up behind you (e.g. YOU will be between him and his shadow from where he ulted from). It gives him an extra shadow, which allows him Q's, a slow from his E, and a blink with his R again 0.5seconds after he lands. Damage he does to you is reapplied at a reduced value after 3.0 seconds. _Knowing this information is really important in order for you to know what your options are, how to dodge damage as best as you can, and how to punish him as well._ **1a)** He is now in melee range and his R is locked for half a second before casting it again, opening him up for a melee attack or short ranged spell) **1b)** He will land in a known location, setting him up for a skill shot. **2)** He is more than likely going to try and make use of his ult to damage you, so you can be sorta confident that damage will be coming (Not always the case. Good Zeds use their ult as a way to dodge things or kill very low target they are chasing when they don't have other options, leaving their basic skills to kill targets, typically). So either he's going to hit you a lot, or he just wasted his ult to be cool and trick you. **2b) **Zeds love being able to go in, kill you, and get out ASAP, to reduce the chances of him taking too much damage or being CC'd or caught out. Armor + health is great because it means he needs to get out more damage to you, which may mean more AAs which means more time next to you before he R's away. During this time, he allows himself to take more damage by being in your range, making him more vulnerable, OR, he just gets out and you survive. **3)** You know where his shadow is (from where he luted from), so leaping/flashing away as from that original location reduces his potential damage. Time the leap/flash properly to get away from his first shadow and from where he lands. Do so too early and he follows with you. **4) **Since a % of his damage comes from having a delayed burst after 3.0 seconds means you can predict a burst of damage. Items that provide shielding or invulnerability counter him. {{item:3157}} {{item:3026}} {{item:3190}} As previously mentioned, armor is never a poor choice if you can afford it. These are some things to keep in mind!

: I mean, it's not like Riot's known for making games without a hard meta that you're forced into if you want to perform at the higher levels. ...Then again, at least in SR you have champion mastery to fall back in if you're a one trick.

The difference is one is controllable, the other is not. In regular league, you could not be following the meta and still do well because you have full control on how you play the character, itemization, vision, communication, etc. In TFT, you can control who you choose, positioning, items. You have way less control.
: Set 2 is garbage for many reasons. I used to play TFT during Set 1 and it was a cool game that required low effort and felt fun. However I haven’t even completed my placements after Set 2. There’s grossly overpowered comps and weak as hell ones and RNG doesn’t always work in your favor when there’s 100+ champions in the game. Also if you get wrecked early game you’re gonna lose in 3 rounds later because there will be that guy with 6 summoners deleting your team while having almost all of his units alive. I think they ruined a cool game that had potential. They just kept throwing stuff into it without even considering it would defeat the purpose of an auto chess game.

They just kept throwing stuff into it without even considering it would defeat the purpose of an auto chess game. I agree. I don't want to sound like a grumpy player, but, I got in plat II originally in set I and could still have fun and win with different and fun comps, or at least get in 5th with a fun, funky comp and it was overall less crazy. In this set, I CANNOT do that. Everyone has very specific comps they need to follow to win with specific items otherwise they lose, it seems x__x and its less fun. I've lost interest because I've realized it's become a meta game where you follow the meta to win, otherwise, you lose.

: Repeat purchase option
You ask this while they can't even keep their client running properly without memory leaks or other troubles. But in all realness, it's probably difficult for them to code. There's so many QoL things they haven't done, it HAS to be that, otherwise, I don't know what they're doing tbh.
: Memory Leak
Plenty of people have been complaining about it. Have yet to see Riot even address that they're listening to their players or aware of their own designs, which is really...upsetting, sad, disappointing, unprofessional, etc. I'm tired.
Bârd (NA)
: Now that you're creating clients for other games (LOR), TFT should not be on the LOL client.
I agree. I actually sorta enjoy both, but I would prefer for them to be separate.
: Client is still massively broken
Client gets slower the longer its open. Can't invite people who are in a lobby already (even though they're not in queue). Friends list is buggy too
: [Gameplay] Urgot R auto re-casts on Tryndamere when he is in Undying Rage.
Yeah, seems like it could be a bug. But also, Urgot's ultimate automatically recasts after 4 seconds if there target is below the threshold.
: Patch 10.1 Notes
This is great, and new content and balances are always great, but a working client should be first priority. PLEASE fix it and PLEASE tell us that you are aware of this. Why do you guys not communicate with us?

: Anyone notice that client runs on gpu now?
the client has been f*cked this patch. Everyone's having trouble w/ it and Riot hasn't fixed it. Generally, what people have noticed, is that the longer the client stays open, the laggier it gets. The best fix is to shutdown the client if its been open too long and then reopen it to start it off fresh.
: Why were these two autofilled to each others roles?
Same happened to my friend and a random 2 nights ago. Friend wanted support, random wanted top. Friend was assigned top, random was assigned support. They both decided to trade in lobby. Here's a tip. You're MUCH more likely to be autofilled if you get into champ select, someone leaves, and the queue brings you into a new champ select. To reduce this, if someone leaves champ select, immediately end the queue and then restart it.

: Poro king is now shit
My favorite argument is "If it's not all random, you'll keep seeing the same champions over and over again." lol, like, I keep going against annoying comps regardless? I rather be able to choose a champion i can have fun with. And no, you WON'T keep seeing the same comps over and over again. Even when regular URF was out, there were a lot of different champs showing up.
Ali Scammer (EUNE)
: @Riot can we change poro king champion select back to non-random?
yeah, pleasee. They took away TT and random game modes barely show up, and finally something fun that allows me to choose my own champion besides SR shows up...well, it's random :(
: Whoever decided to make Poro King Random
Yeah, I'm honestly really upset its random. One thing I liked about poro king was being able to choose champions on howling abyss, which was always really fun. Sucks that the only way I can play a champion I want is to commit to a Summoner Rift these days, with no Twisted Treeline, Nexus Blitz, or any other random game modes showing up these days :|
: Should League of Legends make a Game mode to play all the champions before their rework?
: Should League of Legends make a Game mode to play all the champions before their rework?
They already said they have so much trouble bringing back stuff such as nightmare bots because of champion updates over the years, so they're likely not going to do something that's even more work such as aiming at all these champions who need to be reverted back. Old coding (character codes) with new coding (maps and such) are not going to tie in well together and it's going to require more than just slapping on old code to a champion model.

: Friendly ARAM PSA
Clarity is a lot more useful than you think, even if you don't have too many mana troubles as the champion you're playing. And for the love of god, stop taking snowball on ADCs who would benefit from extra mana for skill shots. Way too many times do I see a Sivir, Ashe, Jinx, etc take snowball, when they could get more skills shots out with clarity, which also helps out the rest of the team as well!.
: Who's hoping Riot announces a new game tonight?
With ARURF being on PBE, I wouldn't be surprised if they open the queue for it on the live server as a simple way to celebrate, especially since URF is the top requested game mode. It's exciting but boring at the same time if that's just what ends up happening :X
