We have to have a country small like Korea for everyone to get that low of ping. Latency is not just the path you take, but also the physical distance. Speed of light is still a thing unfortunately.

Pretty sure all that stuff is client side (could be wrong here) and you just get the packet that says "kat has ulted". So it's a hardware issue not network issue.

: I'm fairly sure you're one of the assorted rioters I've randomly run into in-game previously, so cool seeing a rioter I recognize. Would have been last season so almost certain you don't remember me, but bumping into rioters in ranked is pretty rare (plus you were on singed and singed players are quite distinctive). Do you have feelings on support singed (or even maybe bot singed in this wacky meta), or does singed belong strictly top lane? (Also, this thread is exploding the red tracker.)

I play wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy too much League so I get recognized every now and then :) I think support Singed is pretty bad. He's got no forward facing abilities unlike some other melee tanks (think Ornn). His only engage is running at you instead of some longer ranged engage (think Ornn). So ADC/Support Singed even in this meta is pretty horrible. I've played Top/Mid/JG Singed pretty successfully though :)

: Hi there, I work in network security, and I had a bit of a curiosity around DDoS. Because Riot is a large / popular company, I'd imagine that you guys have to mitigate a lot of DDoS attacks, but due to having your main service be an online game, I was wondering - Are the nature of the DDoS attacks that you guys see a bit different than those targeted towards a typical web-service company? I would guess that maybe a lot of your traffic is in the form of UDP packets, and you wouldn't be as susceptible to something like a SYN flood attack or something like that.

: I have games where I randomly experience 1k ping(or around that number) my usual is 120-150. Why does this happen? Is their a fix? What to do in games I experience this? For more information, I can see everyone else move but I myself cannot. Also, every game I have to reconnect during the loading screen, I load fine with everyone else at the start, but I have to reconnect first. Why is this? Thank you in advance!

It could be a number of things (your ISP, if you're using wifi, something PC related, install issue, etc.) There are a ton of things in there that could be happening causing these types of issues. Our support team is pretty great.

I figured if it was asked twice I may as well give the best answer I could to it. Sorry it&#x27;s not too in depth there. I actually have another question (though I'll wait in line). What (if I can ask) is your opinion as both a Player AND as a Rioter on the NA experiment regarding unbanning permanently banned players? I'm obviously biased since this account is still permabanned but I'm curious as to what you think on it, you seem like a cool dude.

PERSONAL OPINION: I personally think everyone deserves a second chance :D
: I recently played Singed in ARAM and got S+. I was fast, very very fast. BUT I WANT TO BE FASTER! How to? I took predator boots + {{item:2065}} + Sona E and my passive and became so fast the enemy's start running away from me.

: I have a question, but I am not sure if it is more network related or client stuff, aka gameplay related. But Will there be a time where you will bring in a connection check? Like, a function that runs your internet connection to see if it is enough for a game or if the lags would pose a nuisance and de-queue you? Something like what xStream has, it measures the access points and your connection feed before it opens a stream to twitch as example. Will there be a same, or similar function to LoL? And if so, will that be your thing to do or the task of another team?

Will there be a same, or similar function to LoL? And if so, will that be your thing to do or the task of another team? I'm not sure if something like that is coming or not and it wouldn't be our team that provided it. We'd probably work with the team that did it though to help give them some of our experience from the networking side. As a player I am also interested in that feature.

: I'm not sure if this is your place to answer Laslow (You're a funny guy btw) but have you guys been considering the addition of an 'NA West' server as of late? I know that not a lot of people play on NA as it is but with the right changes player counts could go back up, especially if western players get their 30 ping back. I was thinking Salt Lake City could be a good server location maybe (but I'm NA East so what do I know).

Are there any patterns I can make use of in-game to better out-play singed? Honestly just depends on who you actually play. I can tell you how to play around Singed based on who you have.

: Is the backbone used for things like APIs? What about apps like lol-friends? Or are those less essential and therefore passed through external data pathways? Any plans to expand the updates to the lol friends app to include things like the boards and other features?
