: I've gone 14 consecutive games without getting my primary role. This is not acceptable.
Riot has favored shorter queues over role preference and balanced teams this has probably been in response to constant player whining, but it has made the overall game experience much worse. They need to find a better balance between the two. I would rather have longer queues than these constantly awful games.
Thilmer (EUW)
: Can we nerf Spear of Shojin altogether?
Just remove it. It was a terrible idea from the beginning and a complete design failure.
: Riot tell me whats wrong with this picture...
I'm getting matched with unranked and iron players. Match making is a complete failure. Riot has no excuse.
: lol todays music is all about getting someone to cheat on someone else.....
coreym11 (NA)
: As an adc how can I stop the game from being decided in the first 10 minutes?
You can't. Try to play smart and scale. Solo laners whine about bot all the time when a lot of the time it is them determining the outcome of the game. I play bot and occasionally have a support or adc who is inting hard. But its far more common for me to have a top or mid laner losing badly, or even one who gets ahead and then blows their lead on constantly terrible decision making. "I have a lead so I can 1v5 all the time!" The high dmg gameplay encourages this because it gives them a false sense that they are good at the game when they solo carry once in a while.
: Riot are creating a Nanny State for League
You should have been perma-banned the first time. That was Riot's real mistake. Why should the rest of us put up with toxic children throwing temper tantrums?
: Can we stop
With Runes Reforged and all of the new mechanics, they have made the game too complicated. They don't balance it properly because they simply can't. There are too many moving parts for them to track. Add to that trying to balance pro play vs solo, terrible match making algorithms, etc., and it's not too hard to see why it is out of control.
: Streamers are a big reason of why community is toxic
it's the parents' responsibility more than anyone else. They have the biggest influence in their kids lives. But they don't care enough to pay attention to what their kids are seeing online. Toxic streamers are popular because younger kids think it's cool to say nasty stuff to complete strangers. They don't have the emotional maturity to realize that it's the streamers that are weak minded because they let a game and other players get under their skin so much.
: I just played vs someone who got 5 items on the minions stage at the start
Then just stop playing. The game mode is terrible but everyone keeps giving Riot money for bad game designs.
: EU, EU, EU, EU!
Aw, some kid wants to troll about a contest that doesn't matter. It's kinda sad.
Rioter Comments
: Its really annoying that I can tell who's going to win a game 80% time just by going on OP.GG
I'm getting matched with < 30 players. Riot's match making is abysmal. If the developers think they have done a good job, they clearly have no idea what they are doing.
: A mobile game, at most
They basically admitted this was a rip-off of DOTA's. I never played that, but if it's anything like TFT, it's a complete snooze. I don't want to know how much time and money they wasted on this.
Rioter Comments
: Is it normal for over 30's to play this game?
It's not unusual at all. Younger people act like they invented gaming. They can't see beyond their small experiences. People have been gaming for decades, longer than most of them have been alive.
: Do you guys think the new Mordekaiser is OP?
Of course he is. Riot does this on purpose. They make new champions and reworks OP so that people will want to play them and spend money. There is a a learning curve on both sides. In most cases (Yuumi is probably an exception), they make the learning curve easier for the new champ so that people can get used to the new moves without much effort.
: Nubrac and NB3 are both wrong and right
Neither of them matter. Stop creating topics about these two toxic players. They don't deserve all the attention you are giving them. That is why Riot isn't doing anything. Look at all the press they are getting. Money in the bank for people who don't deserve it. It's pathetic.
: Nightblue3 got a teemo support off meta banned. - why nightblue is right
Wow, that is completely wrong. If off-meta picks are against the TOS, then RIOT would have to delete the majority of their roster. I have not followed this made-up controversy, but I would guess that the player was banned for repeatedly trolling, not because of NB3. NB3 himself should be banned for his extremely toxic behavior. He has become such a bore to watch.
: Teamfight Tactics
Why are you creating another game mode when you can't handle the one that you have?
Frenz1 (NA)
: Why is this playerbase so mean?
People are toxic because they mistakenly believe that pushing other people down raises themselves up, and it gives them a false sense of superiority. It does just the opposite. Toxic people are weak minded individuals who have to hide behind a computer to pretend to be tough. Be the stronger ones and ignore them. They don't really matter.

Bot only matters because that's where mid/top/jungle come to feed.

So? I see this all the time on the MHW boards. Why is "that's how it works" considered an excuse for making a boring game? If they want my money, then make it interesting. Constant farming is weak game design.

I prefer when big and strong animals eat the weak and small ones, not the other way around.

Strong should survive and weak should die. I put the same logic to games and everything else. Here, Tarzaned is better than us, we have absolutelly no right to judge him. It's difficult to respond to a post this wrong. It is a game. It provides only entertainment. If excelling at that is considered a great accomplishment, then the human race is not worth much. I am better at my job than those who work for me. By your logic, it is fine for me to be toxic to them. Brilliant. I should have an easy time finding good employees who want to be insulted and belittled every day because I am better than them. We have every right to judge him because he puts himself in the public eye to make money. He is there to be judged as entertaining or boring, worth watching or not. Your logic is flawed in every way.
Audhulma (NA)
: I wasn't impressed with the trailer. Those monsters are just reskinned models/rigs from the other monsters in the base game with minor changes here and there, and I expect they're probably going to charge $40 for it. More importantly, it's all meaningless if they don't do anything about 'end game' which is basically just farming nonstop for the .01% of getting the gem you need.

Wrong. People who haven't watched a video yet don't have to live in a hole. It's easy enough to put "spoilers" or something in the title so that people who haven't seen it yet don't read it or click on the link. It's common courtesy, every site does it, and it is part of the board rules. Then again, I'm talking to socially inept LoL community, so I am probably expecting too much.
: EU >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> NA
Nice spoilers for the people who haven't watched it yet. Both EU and NA have a long way to go to be taken seriously. One MSI win isn't going to change that. But it's funny watching all the immature fans spamming the trash talk as if they had anything to do with the win.
: Tarzaned tweeted this xd
Who cares? He is another toxic, immature streamer who doesn't deserve attention.
: Yuumi proves how utterly clueless this forum is.
I have lost every game that she has been on my team. I can see her being strong at high elo because people know how to group and team fight. At low elo, everyone wants to 1v5, which leaves Yuumi no options to use her kit. She might end up being one of those niche picks mostly used in pro or high elo play because she is so dependent on team comp and team play. In solo queue, especially in NA where YOLO reigns supreme, I don't see her being viable, not yet anyway.
: Vayne ADC starting BotRK is terrible
BOTRK is the best item on Vayne because of the combination of stats it provides. She is very squishy and relatively short ranged for an ADC. Being able to stack up 3 W's quickly while life-stealing allows her to poke in lane and farm with sustain. Adding Rageblade gives her a powerful 2 item spike that she didn't used to have. That said, the OP isn't completely wrong. A lot of players starting out need AD/AP because they haven't mastered farming and trading. Straight-up damage helps simplify both. The items that work for beginner players and pro players are very different, and people shouldn't be afraid to go with what works for them.
: I think Yuumi's win rate is heavily suffering from people genuinely not knowing how to use her.
I have lost every game she's been on my team. I'm going to have to start perma-banning her.
: I think Yuumi's win rate is heavily suffering from people genuinely not knowing how to use her.
Possibly, but you could just as easily argue that people don't know how to play against her, so she should seem OP.
Zardo (NA)
: I think i'm starting to see why everyone gets all these "trolls" on their teams
Are you actually suggestion that the toxic community created trolls? What complete nonsense. If anything, it is the other way around. This community became toxic because of all the trolls that Riot let run rampant. Either way, anyone who becomes a troll because of some toxic play must be very weak-minded. If you alter your behavior that drastically because of what some anonymous person said to you in a < 60 minute game, that doesn't say much about you, does it?
: No incentive to return from an accidental AFK
They wouldn't need to have a system like this if there weren't so many intentional afks and dcs. All the rage quitters, kids who start games they don't have time to finish and every other lame excuse has ruined it for the rest of us.
: PLZ FOR THE LOVE OF GOD
It is amazing how many players won't adjust their builds to their enemy's comp. Seems like a fundamental skill of this game. I love seeing an MR rush against an all AD team, etc. So cringe.
: Here is why the core game of League of Legends is currently broken
Runes Reforged was definitely a turning point in the decline of this game. Riot already had a huge roster of mostly useless champions that they couldn't balance. The complexity of Runes Reforged amplified that problem many times over. Riot has never learned from their mistakes. They keep trying to plug the leaking dam, and it never works. I guess it keeps the balance team employed though.
: I would rather be autofilled support than jungle.
I don't know why but if I get auto-filled jungle, I get feeding lanes, usually bot. If I get auto-filled in other roles, it's 50/50. No idea why, but it makes me want to dodge.
Rioter Comments
: why is spear of shojin allowed to exist
I played against the twice tonight. Both players did poorly until they bought this item. Then it was nearly impossible to counter their constant spells. It was a Yi and Jax. Riot needs to stop making these items that are so OP on only a few champions and that have little to no counter play. They keep adding complexity to the game when they can't balance what they currently have. It is getting so boring.
aTypical (EUNE)
: RIOT start banning trolls please
They won't. The trolls get worse every year because they know they aren't likely to get banned.
: Why is Morgana mid getting gutted? Why?
Riot hates utility mages now. They think they are too boring to play. This will hit her in the supp role too. Another botched attempt to balance the game.
KTFresh (NA)
: Account penalties should be handled by humans, not a bot
1. It is impossible for humans to monitor a game of this size. 2. It is not Riot's responsibility to babysit players whose parents failed to raise them with the social skills to interact with other people. 3. There is an appeals process. The bots will never be perfect. They are a necessary evil since some players can't control their own behavior.
: Whoever said Vayne has a weak early game lied
Vayne has a weak early game because she has very low health and only medium range. The buffs to Guinsoo's boosted her too much with the proc every two hits.
: Is there anyway that permaban accounts still have a chance to get unbanned?
Obviously that would defeat the purpose of permaban. It usually takes multiple warnings to get permanbanned. Some people aren't capable of learning from their mistakes.
: Got ass handed to me by Yasuo but pissed at windwalls hitbox.
Riot always makes these hitboxes crazy so that players don't have to have skill. So we're supposed to guess what might work against them.
: Can we get a bit of Orange Essence from Hextech Chests when we get a Champion Shard from it?
It would be nice to get SOMETHING useful out of them. I already have all of the champions, and I keep get skin shards that I already own.
: Pretty much sums up how Riot wants champions to be balanced in certain lanes...
: Did you not see the Riot post about her winrates? 54%+ and SUPER high banrates seem pretty OP to me.
> [{quoted}](name=Rathar Dashing,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=WEE6vIr2,comment-id=00190000,timestamp=2019-04-06T21:12:48.462+0000) > > Did you not see the Riot post about her winrates? 54%+ and SUPER high banrates seem pretty OP to me. Is that mid only? Because most of her ban rates are from support. She has always been highly contested in that role, and Riot never felt the need to nerf her. She didn't get much of a buff when they reworked Kayle, so why is she such a problem now? She only has about a 3% pick rate in mid. A win rate of > 50% is meaningless in that case. There is also the constant problem of Riot trying to manipulate the state of the game. They always meddle to steer the game one way or the other, and they fail a lot. It's a never ending cycle. Make champions that are enjoyable to play in multiple roles, and let the players decide how they want to use them.
