: Why Riot Games FPS is doomed to fail.
Riot is just as big as Blizzard. When they release a game it'll get a spotlight because they have the reach to make sure it does. Riot didn't get league as far as they did with bad marketing.

I'm not mixing anything up. She's an assassin she doesn't want mixed damage. She wants to burst people as hard as she can and you need pen to benefit the majority of your damage to do that effectively. You could change all of her kit to be physical so she builds lethality, but she doesn't really want that because she'd lose access to zhonya's.
: Hey so why does Akali's Q do magic damage?
Because gameplay systems are more important than something being thematically fitting. Akali's kit is made to synergize with mage itemization. If her Q was physical that itemization would become very bad on her and the champ would not function correctly.
Benzooka (NA)
: Last new jungle champion was Kayn... July of 2017
They confirmed we'll get a new jungler in 2020.
: Least Popular Role contest
They've shown the graphs. It's support and it's not even a contest.
: If you were given the job of making a new passive for Kog'Maw, what would you make it?
I wouldn't because the power has to be pulled elsewhere from his kit and that's probably not a worthwhile exchange to make.
: Riot Needs to Stop Creating New Champions and Step It Up With Mini-VGU
Well they did try doing mostly VGU's for a while. People complained there weren't enough new champs. No matter what they do there will be a group upset with them.
: isnt it funny how every champion that discovers a muramana build becomes broken?
The item is finally usable on more than one champion and you think it's broken? lol ok.
darkdill (NA)
: So SMITE has Team RWBY skins now available, but LoL can't even get a tiny reference?
It's pretty evident by this point Riot has no interest in allowing crossovers with their ip. It's understandable they'd want to keep the game purely their own content as once that boundary is crossed the game is harder to take seriously. I think smite just looks like a clown fiesta with its cosmetics.

This is actually how it worked for years. Even corporate teams had to go through the same ranked teams as everyone else. The bar is much higher now than it was then. C9 doesn't even have any of its original members anymore. Heck the original Dignitas team used to be considered pro level and look where those original members are now.

That's really just not how the LCS works though. These days even if you had a ranked team win such a prize they'd just get shit on the moment they got onto the pro stage. The skill gap is just too large.

No it absolutely did do shit like that. I remember the completely black lobby bug quite well in the old client. People were straight up begging Riot for a new client because of all the bugs.

I think it was a nice rework, but it brought waayy more problems to the champion than the old version did. Ok but you realize how much work it'd take to do a revert now right? All of her skin particles would have to get updated, all of her animations would have to get updated... It's not work that's worth putting in to bring back a design with some really unhealthy gameplay that had less players than current Akali.
: Why do Prestige Points expire?
They're basically giving impulse purchasers a deadline to get them to impulse purchase more things. Shitty marketing ploys as usual.
: how to destroy slowly your game and lose profits by Riot. Step by Step tutorial.
Morello moved to R&D projects by choice. Ghostcrawler has never at any point worked on balance and was only a management lead. Y'all like to throw flak at him but he's generally not the one responsible for the things you don't like. You just don't have anyone else to blame because the people responsible usually don't put their names out there and it's not hard to see why.
HideSide (EUNE)
: Aatrox
They reworked him because of game health issues so they have no interest in bringing him back. If they were interested in keeping him they wouldn't have completely overhauled him.
Jmiguel (NA)
: Comebacks are next to impossible
It's just because of how pre-season changes have skewed balance. Drastic changes aren't needed they just need to shift numbers that affect snowballing. It's a problem that's happened before and it's a problem they've fixed before.
: nexus blitz????
They said eventually but seeing as it wasn't very popular globally they probably want to give it significant changes first.
: So riot said the Jax was going to get an ezreal sized update
They never confirmed anything of the sort. They just mentioned him as a potential candidate for one in the future depending how well Ezreal turned out at the time.
Artican (NA)
: Riot's Focus Has Shifted
A lot of staff working on new projects were never on the league team to begin with. These new games have been in development for several years already. You make it sound like client and balance issues weren't a thing before but they absolutely were. In fact they were a lot worse in the past when the client used adobe air and stuff like release Diana and Zyra made it into the game.
: When will Riot start treating us right and give us candy kayn?
My guess is either they won't do it because the pun doesn't translate well to other languages, or because skins for him take 3 times the work of a normal champion and they simply couldn't allot the resources for him this year.
: thematically, why is thresh a support?
Because he was a thematic distinctly lacking from the support roster and brought many new players into the role when he was added. As it turned out a lot of people actually wanted an edgy support.

Adding to your ticket just puts you in the back of the line again. You have to be patient, the support staff are busy people and your case can't be handled by a bot.

Send in a support ticket. This is a pretty common occurrence so they are equipped to deal with it.
Raistlin (EUNE)
: Akali Range or Hack?
There are no hacks capable of doing that it sounds like she just marked her shroud with her E.
: Senna's Doesn't Feel Good (Rant)
She doesn't deal double damage on every auto. She has a heftily reduced crit multiplier as stated in her passive. She gain less benefit from the item system than other champs as a tradeoff for the free stats from her passive. This is what allows her to function as a support.
Arammus (EUW)
: man aram sure is "random"
That's the thing with randomness, there's nothing there to stop a truly random sequence from picking the same thing several times in a row. It is technically a possible outcome albeit a rare one. Random does not specifically mean a different outcome each time unless it is rigged to do so.
: What are the chances of Akali ever getting reverted?
None. Old Akali had problems they don't want in the game either. It'd be a pretty ridiculous demand to go to the effort of matching her updated/new skins to her old ball of stats skillset that was very deliberately removed. Like even if they put old Akali back in _she would still need a rework_. It would be a giant waste of time for everyone involved.
: Skin Refunds for Reworked Champions
They've already said they have no plans to ever do this and that stance hasn't changed for several years.
: *Takes out Twisted Treeline* *No second thought of Magma chamber*
If you mean the very original magma chamber the concept just wasn't good. We don't need even bigger summoners rift. The 1v1 mode I can't remember why they canceled even after going to the effort of making it.
: Fun adc Champs That's aren't too difficult?
Jhin is very easy to pick up, more so than you would think. His unique attack pattern makes it easier to kite with him than other adcs.
Trias000 (EUNE)
: Are all heals 33% effective on AoE abilities?
Each healing effect specifies in its tooltips if it's reduced for AOE or not. If nothing says otherwise it's full healing or Riot forgot to include it in the tooltip.
Łania (NA)

Season 10 starts January 8th. They should be re-enabled then.

: Can we add an "Avoid Player" option?
Overwatch tried it. Players used the system to avoid playing vs people that were really good rather than people who were toxic.

It’s easy to see the teams pumping out skins and champs like a factory, and bugs that still don’t get fixed, and assume where all the manpower goes. The thing is not everything can be solved faster by throwing more people at it. After a point adding more people just complicates communication and doesn't increase productivity. For a bug as serious as the game crashing you can bet they already have the maximum number of people working on it.

It's different with Senna because she's not going into solo lanes. Regardless of whether she's adc or support she's still in the same lane, which means her matchups don't change and she runs into her counters either way. It also means she'll never have solo xp. If she can't be balanced between both roles it won't be for the same reasons as brand and zyra.

KAMAARA (NA)
: What's Easier? Creating a Champion or Updating an Old One?(Can Any Rioters Help Answer This?)
They both have their challenges. New champs have to bring something new and unique to the game while updates have to fix existing problems without chasing away too many mains. Gragas wasn't in that poll because he doesn't need a full VGU. He'll probably get a model update when they have spare art resources for it.
: OKAY RIOT!
Fake leaks get posted all the time. It's too soon for more blood moon skins and pool party getting only 2 skins would make zero sense. Odyssey Jhin would also never happen because he already has dark cosmic and those universes are connected with eachother.
