Not trying to start an argument, just trying to understand. Would he be able to buy {{item:3085}} ? All the examples you gave were champions that changed the range of their autoattacks, not that had a ranged ability that counted as a melee autoattack. For example, {{champion:81}} couldn't buy {{item:3074}} /{{item:3748}} despite his Q being counted as an autoattack.
If they keep it coded as an Auto? yea he could. His auto is currently a long ranged melee auto. The difference with his and Ezreal's Q is Ez's Q is not an auto. It simply applies on hit effects. It wont proc Runaan's (or Hydra, if he was melee) as his Q is still a skillshot rather than an empowered auto. The way i remember that is the fact that Ez Q cannot Crit, while GP's can

: It's already here? I thought they weren't going to make major changes during the season. And if I'm correct, it's the same queue next season. I'm still playing with premades. It's the sticker of shame all over again. And we knew roles would increase time, but it shouldn't be by this much. Even fill options are taking longer.
All they did was make Diamond duo only. It was already trio only. they aren't going to make major ladder adjustments till preseason. However number of players have gone up. I could explain it all, but this man did a better job than i ever could https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/4vswoj/the_state_of_the_game_august_2016/
: > Next season they will just add different ladders so your ladder shows others that play solo, not a mix. But you will still be queued up with and against premades. Literally nothing changes.
I never said it did change, i just stated it was here for diamond+. I don't play enough ranked to agree or disagree with either side of this DQ/SQ thing, just pointed it out
Bopn (NA)
: you are technically correct but the reality is that nobody would play dynamic ranked if there were to be a solo ranked ladder so the que times would be fine for the solo ladder.
thats half right. In the event of people swapping queues for solo queue, DQ times would go up more than SQ times. That doesnt mean SQ times wouldn't go up, as people would still play DQ, but to a potentially lesser degree. Theres also no real evidence to prove that DQ would become unpopular. Decent amounts of people play as premades
: No, the dwindling ranked player-base is what's adding longer queue times.
dwindling player base? numbers have gone up. its all smurfs you say? Here : this guy will explain it much better than i can https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/4vswoj/the_state_of_the_game_august_2016/
: Solo queue isn't back. It will be a thing in diamond+ next season. And the queue times are longer. You ever watch higher elo people? Times there are twice as long, while in gold/plat it's 150% as long as it used to be.
Its already here for Diamond+. Next season they will just add different ladders so your ladder shows others that play solo, not a mix. The queue times are based on the new champ select. All indications seem to show more people play ranked than before, thus queues should be down compared to S5. the fact that you select roles is what makes queues long, not DQ
: Idk, if at plat 5 a ranked game takes 9-12 minutes to queue up for at 8 in the evening there's a problem.
Thats not DQ though, thats the new champ and role select. Adding Solo Queue (while keeping DQ, I'm assuming, as thats what most who want solo have said, i don't play enough ranked to care either way personally) will make your queue times worse as it splits the player base in two. Imagine half the supports in your games. Queues will double, probably more as bot laners queue together a decent amount. Im not for or against SQ, i just need to point that out
: NOOOO NIGHTWEEB3 CANT DUO WITH MIKE ;(

"Going from the highest rank, Titanium, in Dynamic Queue would put you in Platinum 5 in Solo Queue." I couldn't find the Riot quote, but this was an article written here http://www.12up.com/posts/3636993-riot-hints-at-complete-rework-of-ranked-system-in-season-7 I believe Team builder's queue was awful, could be wrong. but you could very well be right, what I'm describing could take a long time, like years. I also thought you meant DQ was unable to be queue'd solo. My mistake there. Even so, most solos probably wouldn't queue there unless incentivized (like what was said at the beginning of this season, huh Rito)
: ***
They did say that, when they sad this thing about Titanium they said you would have to switch to solo queue to climb higher. Once swapped to Solo queue you would suffer a MMR penalty. However switching from solo to group/DQ wouldn't suffer an MMR penalty. Also, im not against SQ, i don't play enough ranked to have negative effects of DQ, so i don't really care either way (i play solo). But that solution will kill Dynamic queue because of queue times. Both queue times will be doubled, then people will slowly switch to solo queue just because of queue times. People already complain about queues now, imagine then? Also, this solution will kill 4 man premades. They aren't all toxic and i don't truly understand why people can't play ranked because 1 friend didn't log on
: ***
1. doesn't apply, once you hit titanium, its done, you need to swap to solo queue ladder, which would penalize your MMR 2&3 i can agree with, but there is no perfect system as putting in solo removes the ability to queue together for those who want to do so
: ***
If i recall correctly, their plan is to make two ladders but both play together. Solo Queue would have Bronze Silver Gold Platinum Diamond Master Challenger Dynamic/Group Queue would have Copper Iron Steel and Titanium (after that its done as its Solo only for Diamond+) Therefore, the competitive ladder wouldn't be mixed with Boosted players, as they would all be in Titanium, not Platinum. Thus, the Diamond Border is still exclusive, as is Plat and Gold, the boosted players would have a titanium or Steel border

: Players are leaving in droves. And rather than cycle random game modes that have proven to bring the players they are doing some of the most unpopular game modes. Seriously when is URF or even Doombots
We don't have proof of players leaving in droves. We don't have any stats based on players. The thing we do have (ranked player base numbers from op.gg) has increased by about 15%. And no, its not all smurfs. The Lol subreddit has also grown by about 15%. everything shows the player base growing if anything. However we don't have definitive proof on that either. But we do not have China's numbers, they aren't trackable atm Heres the reddit thread on it https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/4vswoj/the_state_of_the_game_august_2016/ TL;DR : we don't know whats going on with the player base, but it appears to be growing

: Okay so let me explain it to you: Look up my last brand game. Lookt at twitch winrate and name. (dunno if it's the real though) They were a 4 men premade stack. Not only they ruined my game by bringing gold 5/1 into a plat 2 game but also thanks to dynamicBoost they can not only boost one account but four at a time. Twitch has been bronze last season and now he is plat 2 with 60% winrate. Seems legit.
Yes, but that Twitch could have been in your games last season too. But instead of having 3 competent teammates (I'm assuming), it would have been him alone with 3 other randoms who you aren't sure will perform.
: [suggestion] Make Barrier shield twice as Strong for half the duration
Its a good concept. But Double shield value for half duration is too strong. Maybe 50% increase, but not doubling
: Is that a joke? Booster Que is alive and well much more than it was last season. Much easier and more profitable to get 3-4 boosters que'd together instead of just 2 compared to last season.
People who want to get boosted didnt wait for Dynamic Queue to get boosted. They found ways last season, wether with Duos or with websites. There isn't suddenly more people buying the boosts than before because a new queue exists
: Have you ever been close to diamond? Don't think so. As soon as you hit plat2-1 and have to deal with dia 5 and those who dropped out of it because of boosting you will know.
Yes, yes i have, thanks. But people who want to be boosted didnt wait for DQ to get boosted. They'll get boosted one way or another. DQ had nothing to do with it

Dynamic? maybe. Boosters will be prevalent everywhere and theres no real reason to believe theres an increase compared to last season
: Not if the verification method required him to sign into a smartphone app. I'm not talking about text alerts (although that would be a good first step). This would require a much more sophisticated hack to gain access to his LoL account via email if something like this were implemented.
But i personally would doubt they would do this. People lose smartphones so if they lost theirs their account might be gone forever. Still, there might be a way to do this I'm not aware of that does fix all these problems
Vhan8765 (NA)
: You know, all of this though is based off the **theory** OP had their email hacked. Obviously Juzza noticed his ban email by being on his email account, meaning he probably checks his emails frequently like every normal person does. And like almost every mail service, chances are there would have been a bunch of alerts if his email account had been hacked. Being a normal person who normally checks their emails, they would have seen if their email account was hacked. Plus, everyone seems to be forgetting that Riot/League of Legends doesn't email you lol. Aside from verifying my email or getting a reply on a support ticket, I have never had a email from Riot/League of Legends once. So even if OP did have their email hacked, how did the hacker know Juzza had a League account, as well as what kind of email hacker steal someone's League account only and doesn't touch anything else? I have a very hard time believing OP's email was actually hacked. Riot screwed up and got called out on it, but to be the "big hero" still, they are just placing all blame on Juzza.
True enough, I'm just going off of info we have here. But i have gotten emails from Riot for surveys and whatnot, so they email sometimes.

Only those hyper-linked about shit like _"How's the last been?"_, _"Pst, kid, want more lore?"_ etc. >Alright, i didnt know the stat numbers, thanks. But where is the proof on Half the community doesnt use it? i never found that Last time Riot told us the number of players active per month, it's been 65/67 millions. Don't quote me here, but I think it's been around 12 millions weekly. That's been 2014. Riot Tryndamere claimed on his blog less than 2 months ago, that the number of players haven't decreased since. When I checked about a month ago, on 11 servers under Riot API _(i.e. China and Garena not included)_, there were about 11 million ranked accounts with as few as 10 matches (placements) since the beginning of the season. So unless they add non-Riot API servers to the player pool, the overwhelming majority of the community doesn't play ranked. Now, do the math having the _"10% of community is really angry about DQ"_ quote in mind.
Ah, I'm sorry, don't know Mark Twain quotes well. And yea, surveys are rare. I've played for a while (4+ years, 3k hours) and gotten 5 or so. thanks. for the numbers, didnt ever do the math I wish we had access to the chinese numbers though, they're a huge part of the community.
: People are suggesting that Riot create a smart phone verification ap that requires you to verify your account every time it is logged in from a new IP address. This would have immediately prevented this hack.
not quite though, if he has access of the OPs email address, he can change the smartphone that needs verification.
Vistha Kai (EUNE)
: Lies, damned lies and statistics. The last time Riot used any number, it was to say, _"10% of people are really angry at us for replacing Solo Queue with Dynamic Queue"_. Then you realize it means, that even 7 million people are very displeased by Riot's actions about a system half the overall community doesn't actually use.
> Lies, lies and statistics Would you like to show me the lies? I may have exaggerated when i said Everyone, but Blizzard shut the idea down without much other than "you think you do, but you don't" They've even rethought about it with Nostalrius recently Now about "lies" concerning Riot surveys. Riot phrases the same surveys in multiple ways to avoid people hating on these surveys. But it happens anyway. Which is fine, the survey you got might not be worded the way you like it and you think it makes this biased. And if all surveys were written the same way, you'd be 100% correct. But they aren't. I was unable to find the exact quote from a Rioter, as I'm in champ select. But ill send you a reddit comment and a pic showing this as well as i can http://puu.sh/q7Nj9/c9efa9c68c.jpg https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/4tplxt/new_riot_survey_about_dynamic_q/ >It's already been confirmed that they word the questions in different ways, you can check a few posts a few months ago that had examples with different wording on the question, a few being biased towards the DQ side and others towards the SQ side, also a few Rioters confirmed it.

Meddler (NA)
: We don't have details yet on what we will or won't do with runes, how that would affect people's existing rune collections etc. It's something we'd want to talk about well in advance of actual changes though. The potential for some roles to get effectively locked out is one of the big concerns that's been raised about 10 bans. We think it'll probably be ok, given the number of champions in each class at this point and that the extreme case requires both teams focus the same class. Need to confirm that though. With you on agro juggling, both as something that drives cool play and a good skill to test. Concern is that at times/on some characters it can be too free.
What about 10 bans for competitive play? This could easily ban out a player completely, or ban out a role of meta picks. Thoughts?
Meddler (NA)
: Defensive stats feel too universally effective, rather than being noticeably more useful on the classes that should benefit from them the most. That results in issues like tank Ekko/Fizz/Yasuo etc. Offensive stats by contrast tend (some exceptions) to be better focused. Will need to work on that at some point, though not sure if that'll involve systemic changes (how items work, what stats exist etc) or changes to individual champions and items (tanks get defensive abilities that scale with defensive stats to make those items more valuable on them etc).
How would you feel about potentially removing utility from these items and adding them to certain tanks or maybe masteries? This way assassins just get a ball of stats when building tank items rather than utility?
: Not Riot's fault that his email was compromised, but it definitely is Riot's fault that the hacker was able to access his League account with such ease and without a single backup security measure.
I do agree We should have some sort of verification, but you can't blame Riot for this, even with verification, the email was compromised. Some verifications go through email, making that type completely useless. Also, due to having email, they could change passwords easily making causing his account to get compromised either way. Email is also where you would get proof to turn off/change the verification process, which makes any defence against it useless.

: Is it any different from Riot's "You think you want this, but our data shows otherwise"?
Yes, its plenty different. Everyone in WoW screamed for it, and with no data or evidence or anything, the devs just said nope. Riot on the other hand, has surveys with players (before you complain the format for these surveys makes them biased, there isn't a survey that pleases everyone. Ive seen surveys that people didnt like, then Riot flips to a survey like they asked for, and they complained about that too) These surveys aren't perfect, but theres at least some proof as to why they say things rather than Blizzard's "you think you do, but you don't" Also, Riot never says, "you think you want this, but..." They go more along the lines of " Our data shows that 7% of players are the ones who really do not like _Insert whatever here_. Furthermore only about 2% of players are truly negatively affected by _Insert whatever here_. (these are not real numbers, just an example of how they actually say something)

I couldn't agree more, but we have 1 biased side of the story where we don't know if the OP is lying. You also have to look at it from Riot's side. A perm ban reduces the amount of cheating accounts by 1 here. The guy doesnt play it clearly, so as much as it has sentimental value, it doesnt really affect him. However whoever got onto the account has one less account to get on to cheat. We don't know how this individual got onto this account, and depending on how he got access, chainging passwords might not help.
