: In Help & Support, this was a widely used feature. Game logs are very important in regards to troubleshooting issues. While it won't hinder us much there, it will mean having another step into getting that same information in that the player may have to upload to pastebin instead. Just for insight, it was a used feature even if not in the most popular of boards. I personally will miss it dearly.

I personally will miss it dearly. Yeah, hopefully workarounds like using other sites to host the files or simply pasting the text into posts will be sufficient.
: I notice these changes. Especially the unnanounced top right drown down menu where my summoner name is. Also, when actively making changes my boards will sometimes switch views on me. How exactly though, did the uploads affect the platform? Were they just putting a strain on the forums or was the content contaminating something virally?

Were they just putting a strain on the forums or was the content contaminating something virally? The latter. Strain isn't really much of a problem for us these days.

: Why not instead of doubling the xp gains, halve the amount of xp required? Same effect, smaller numbers. Less bloating.

: so how does this help anyone who is already level thirty? if this is implemented in the future (across all servers) dont you think players who purchased EXP boosts should be refunded them? I know itd be quite hard to track down and refund every exp boost ever bought but I know I bought one or two and if youre going to be increasing exp gains, I feel like "well %%%% whyd id bother buying those if riot knew there was a problem"

The reality is that player will get different benefits at different places in their lifecycle. So people who level might end up losing on level 30 content like end of season rewards. Additionally, you can still buy XP boosts while this is happening, so a boost is still a boost.
: They is this something you need to test on a server? I feel like I could make the spreadsheet to for you in like 2 minutes. There is no downside to newer players in ranked. They will simply get sorted in to bronze and be matched with equally skilled players.

They will simply get sorted in to bronze and be matched with equally skilled players. A lot of this we do have on a spreadsheet! What we're looking to test here is the actual player experience. Our feedback on the path to 30 right now tells us that it feels too much like a grind, which when you look at the amount of games required to hit 30 is probably correct. Hopefully the players who come through this experience will feel differently, which will give us a lot of information to inform our future choices about levels. And yeah, the ranked ecosystem is theoretically supposed to self-adjust :)

: Any information on IP gains / rune cost?

We won't be changing anything regarding IP gain or rune costs specifically related to this change. It's certainly something we're cognizant of though and we're looking at potential solutions longer terms if we adapt a quicker path to 30.
: Took a while for you to do this change... its just math XD but im glad Riot is doing something

Just to be clear, we're not looking this as a single solution to progression. Hopefully the learnings from this will help inform our longer term plan.
