It's actually very important to post these kinds of things here so game companies can see what business practices causes a boycott.
: I mean I think even if they were free, runes were a little boring. They didn't feel like they had a direct impact on anything - now every rune has some sort of visual and a stat that can be tracked - it makes it feel as though each selection you make has a direct impact on the game. Rather than "yippee .25 armor"
Runes and masteries were far better balance than these new ones. Now they game will forever remain in havoc. It's about which champion can break the game the most, to balance it they'll have to break some champs but that would benefit others far too much. The old mastery system may have been boring but it was definitely not gimmicky. It fit the game as it was designed, this one gives too much power.

: Until what always happens happens. People find the best 1-2 keystones for a champ. The champ gets balanced around picking the best keystone. The alternative strategies become absolute shit. Lather, rinse, repeat.
this was their plan all along though, now riot can manipulate what champion get's the spotlight. This was all a plan to manipulate the flow of the game. When they feel like they've seen {{champion:104}} too much and want to see {{champion:64}} again they can just readjust the runes because atm they are the biggest strategy of the game, even more so than the champion you pick.
: I'm pretty sure Riot _explicitly_ stated they were trying to get away from runes that were nothing but flat stats...
which is silly considering some champions need raw stats to compete and the given utility doesn't really help them. These utility ridiculously breaks some champions and makes them too useful while it does little to nothing for others. If anything they should make it that some champions gain gold easier so they can get their stats from items. An obvious example would be how the new system breaks {{champion:59}} but has a much smaller impact on {{champion:83}}
: Juggernauts may need to be looked at
They need to make another rune line tbh for raw damage procs, one that gives some raw stats too.
: I had a nightmare where Riot brought back normal Runes after realizing this was a mistake.
: You know what they say: If everything's broken, then nothing's broken... yeah, we're reaching that point {{sticker:sg-janna}}
Won't ever happen. There's some champions that these runes can be seen as a nerf vs having the raw stats from the old runes. I believe this new rune system is designed for the balance team to have more control of what champion rules the top crown over the others.
: As somebody who was dumb enough to buy the 10-pack Legacy Orb which is now worth so little I can get like 2 skins out of it... FUCK YOU RIOT. And I wish I had known the orange essence value was also going down and not just BE.
Not only this, but now there's less likely for skins to drop because they now share a drop chance with emotes.

It is actually somehow EVEN MORE frustrating and banal as a newcomer to the game. The progress in getting champions is *actually slower* than it was before, to the point where it's doubtful if you will be able to save up for a 6300 champion by level 30. With bad luck you won't be able to. And yet every game there is no longer the sense of progress— no longer do you say "just another 500, 300, 200, 100 IP left for the new champion!"
Your comments confuse me, are you for or against the new system? I don't think a system full of utility helps a new player out because they don't know or understand the game to make the most use of the system vs raw stats is simple, I do AD damage i may need more. The new rune system were designed for the meta and to be more controlling of what champion get's the god tier treatment so if you don't own a good champion pool you're just stuck eating dirt now. It is also more difficult to gain higher BE champions than before.
: Riot is just... lying?
Honestly at this point, we can all say that Riot business ideas and models have changed. Even the quality of the skins have changed ( The new blitz crank has an awkward walking animation, and some of these 1350 skins pretty much seem like a 950 skin ) I'm not sure what happened, but i'll be a hypocrite atm if i start complaining about EA, Capcom and some of the others and paint Riot as better. At last we can always agree and say this is far better than nexon, but still heading that path none the less. I don't think any video game company is a saint not even nintendo who they have publicly stated they don't like to do price drops as quick as others because "you won't appreciate the product enough" which is utterly disgusting to say. ( I had to bring nintendo to the argument because there's blind sheep that think they don't practice greed )

: Seems kinda unfair to me. I know it would be a bit broken,since she wouldn't need to rush mana,but so many things are broken why not let her have this until they figure out a new passive?
Liss has good scaling but her raw damage on the Q is kinda shit. So her getting 2 free spells every couple of seconds doesn't really break her. Some champs like Syndra can wipe the back line of a minion wave and harass at low mana cost. Give lissandra a bone.
magewick (NA)
: As a player from season 1, I am more than fine with the new system. Already have all of the champions and runes are now free. The only difference between now and 2 years ago is that we now get cosmetic stuff like skins for free. Hell the one thing I have wanted for the past few years is a way to get skins for free since I already had all the champions and runes I wanted. I'm sure some players get screwed over by the changes but don't make a blanket statement about all old players. Most old players like myself are in a better state now with the occasional skin unlocks compared to 1-2 years ago when we were just sitting on a ton of excess ip without getting anything out of it.
They could and at least should have giving us extra free mastery pages for older players. There's not enough of them to use. I had 6 Rune pages that i rearranged to use with all my champs and it was fine i can't do the same with this system i need more. Being lv 30 and gaining nothing from it while losing IP in the conversion makes the new rune system a bit painful as i do need to buy more rune pages now. I play league a lot less than i used to now so my idea of comfortably buying the new champs seems shortsighted now that i need more pages. {{sticker:cass-cry}}
: All I've got to say, is that people made logical arguments for why the malzahar rework made his balance even more difficult and it ended up making it even more difficult. Though they were dismissed by people saying that it was too new and it would be adjusted. People have made logical arguments for why the new rune system is going to be the root of constantly more problems than the old system, and they're being dismissed by people saying that they're new and will be adjusted. Some designs simply make it impossible to iron out one flaw without creating another.
The runes are clearly lacking raw numbers. These runes provide a lot of utility and almost nothing else. Some champs need raw number boost not more utility. These utilities help some champions far too much but don't do much for others if anything they feel a bit awkward to use and in the end feels like an overall nerf to said champs.
: I think its because now we will receive rewards for leveling up and there is no cap. Just need to grind.
correct that's what they said. Sounds pretty good on paper but in reality people that don't grind will get lucked out, it doesn't mean much though at least to me. I always get a champion shard from the boxes anyways the chances of me getting a skin seem low, even lower for a skin i would be interested in.
Arakadia (NA)
: That's a hell of a poor investment imo. And totally not worth it when they could have spent that time on way more profitable content.
they will, but this was a quick money scheme to have us buy more pages when they could have at least made them cheaper considering how many people would like to have.

: > Do you know how much you get for leveling up? 700 and do you know how much games you need to level up? lets see... 3500 exp needed for level up 100 exp per game only 35 games, making it 700\35 = ~ 20 IP\BE per game Absolutely generous rito {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-popcorn}}
They should have compensated the lv 30 players at least with this by giving us free rune pages but nothing. Riot has definitely changed lately, they are becoming if not are the greedy corporations we defended them for not being before. At one point i would have not thought of it but today... i think it's possible they are progressing to full loot boxes for everything. Or at least place the good skins behind gemstones. I... would not be surprised today by that.

: Zilean pisses me off too, but I think Crazy Boris has done plenty to make me not hate him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xpe-JoGyPsY
Why is this still not the zilean dance? are they waiting for the rework ?
: Maybe, but mobility has been too strong for a while now. It would be nice to have more recourse against it.
While mobility has been really strong it's too much to cripple them like this. Imagine a champ like {{champion:121}} if he was stopped from jumping because someone hit him... that'd make him way too vulnerable.
: It's the last day of League as we know it
Am i the only one that feels like tomorrow is just another day and regardless of the new system is going to feel like same ol same ol ? What changes a strategy game to me imo is when there's freedom to do things, this new system isn't exactly adding more freedom to the game it's more like forcing specific roles to champs and strategy so tomorrow league will still be the same game were the tower is butter, herald will take w/e tower it slams into first, and we will all run around playing the same way we do today and have since the last actual major changes to the game that were herald/dragons/baron/towers/jg. So to me... imo, tomorrow is still season 7 until they change how we win, or interact with the game not just different numbers on the same way we do damage. But again, just my own opinion. I don't fear, I just wait. When will the game have mechanics for immobile champs to catch up to the mobility creep like breaking some map terrain to run up to the {{champion:64}} ? when will an effective split pusher be a considered strategy or threat? when will a strategic defense lead to an actual counter attack rather than "just wait till they throw ". I for sure still like the game don't get me wrong, i'm just not hyped it's just another day.
: Perhaps it could ground the target, might better define the item's niche.
That would make it too strong though? Even if slowed mobile targets can get away jumping over walls and or reaching team mates, being grounded is just R.I.P to a jumper for example.

: Okay but PROJECT Vi is hot garbage So were the Deathsworn skins
the blitz skins have really awkward walking animations...
: I don't think it needs to be removed, but maybe it could have it's power condensed into an active? Like, on activation your next auto attack (or next 3 auto attacks, or auto attacks for X amount of time) slow the target.
if this happened then it's stats would need to be honestly buffed. The use of the item is to force a duel, the slow is too weak on melee champs as it wears off by the time a mobile champ jumps out. So maybe buff the slow on melee champs and nerf it on ranged ?

You aren't alone but that's a pointless complaint at this point. It is sad, if she's as mobile as she looked in the preview then immobile champs that can't keep up are going to feel like even more shit, especially those that rely on enemy position to catch them, like {{champion:83}} {{champion:516}}
: Do we really want a game where every character is just a different version of garen? I like my games to have lulus, heimers, nunus, annies, and amumus. Heck even jinx and soraka seem to be in this vein of fun loving or cute characters. Im sure the next 5 champs will go straight back to being burly and sexy don't worry. Also, yordles in general dont fit in with the human characters. Its not game breaking to have a weird new character.

: Tying jungling to smite entirely was a mistake.
I don't think they consider it a mistake but more of a decision. On that note it was a very limiting idea. They could have just done better fixes to not have top {{champion:102}} and mid lane {{champion:81}} use the smite items or make it less convenient for them.

: Level 30 is no longer going to be the level cap! League is going to be moving to a system similar to Overwatch, where you will be able to level up infinitely and will get a chance at champion/skin shards every time you do.
It's a good optional system but a terrible mandatory one. I hope league never stops selling skins normally.
: I'm pretty disappointed in the effort put into Harrowing this year
It does suck, especially when it's the chance to do really cool skin concepts and have more freedom to do it. Simply have a champion dress up as something else they don't have to be the theme. Hope you guys all had fun this halloween :) because for sure it wasn't in summoners rift.
