: Why did you type this hostile and aggressive essay to your teammates in a normal?
What's hostile about it?
: No, you just shouldn't press "play". Also, do not agree to Terms of Use if you're unable to comprehend or capable of following it. If you're so terrible at self-control, then you have no place in this game. Move along. Or You'll end up losing every single of your accounts you create. This game is meant for the self-control and the self-controlled only.
I've had this account for a very long time. I've never been banned permanently for playing LoL. I feel like you're blowing this out of proportion.
: You're banned for consistency. Due to your lack of self-control. Not because of one game.
Lack of self-control is one thing I'm terrible at. Telling that I lack it isn't helpful. You tell a player 'don't play if you're frustrated' so what? You expect me to go AFK too? That's toxic.
: You retaliated out of anger. You went off on someone and blaming them for not playing by your standards. Don't play Rift if you're frustrated, especially if you lack self-control.
So basically you think I can't handle playing with a bullying group of 4 and that's why I'm banned? Okay, tell me something I don't know. If Riot would TELL US they are in a group then we can just mute them all when one of them does something to offend us instead of us trying in vain to be nice and then being banned for it. I dare you to explain how anything I did in chat was not for the benefit of the team. If she can't realize that her actions are the same as AFK by playing with her friend Zed, someone has to tell her. If she can't handle a little criticism, she's the one that should be permanently banned, not her refusal to play the game normally resulting in people that aren't her buddies getting chat restricted. It's a team game and if people aren't trying to team work because their friend 'made them play' and now they have to lane with someone that calls them out on their lack of effort, they have to 'save face' and 'friendship' and therefore they report someone and that's cool except now Riot isn't even reviewing the chat anymore to make sure the person was being rude? A fully automated ban system doesn't work. It didn't work in Dota 2, and it's going to fail in LoL also.
: I feel like very gradually we have gotten to an "everything is offensive" area in video games
I don't understand but maybe it has to do with their system being abused by people that got attracted to LoL because of TfT? I find that hard to believe though, I guess they changed to a fully automated banning system like what Dota 2 has. They don't even check the chat anymore I guess. I stopped playing Dota 2 and I'll stop playing LoL too if they insist on fully automated. This is the wrong direction to move in.
Rioter Comments
: Any time I get some cocky loser that bans nothing and then feeds their ass off to their laner I like to say "Maybe you should have banned them?" Too much cancer in the game to waste a ban slot on nothing.
Blame the players, not the champions.
: Why are you buffing Lux support exactly???
I haven't seen any indication they are buffing Lux...are you referring to something that they already did?
: what about a mode without jungler? I would find that spectacular

I don't know what you guys are going on about I feel like complaining about death recap is a meme at this point. I died 3 times last game and I only looked at it once. And it told me about what I'd expect. Most of the damage was physical and also the champion that did the most damage to me was Illaoi whom my ally wasn't helping me kill more quickly.

There is at least one popular streamer from NA that plays Vel'Koz support, so NA is less likely a region to have people rage quitting over the pick. People don't think for themselves and instead look at popular players to see what's 'normal' so I'm sure it's not hard to find some champion that will trigger someone if you pick it, but the region can make a difference because if for no other reason, time zones exist.

I see items grouped up off stage, too. Doesn't seem like anyone can pick them up.
: It broke both. You can't just say "it broke ADCs not healers!" when healers were literally the champions making it possible.
: The problem with Font of Life: It's an early game rune that doesn't really beat out Revitalize for enchanters or Demolish for tanks and catchers. The item isn't meant to scale, but its effect IS pretty ass. The ticks of healing it gives are meant for people to continually proc it (support slows you, and then the marksman hits you to repeatedly trigger the 5+ 1% hp heal). It's supposed to offer a slight edge in early trades, but it's better to just heal/shield more whenever you're trying to heal/shield or gamble on hitting turrets with demolish for that fine china. They need a more interesting choice in that slot that defines itself, but given Shield Bash's existence, I don't think they know what to do in that slot.
Revitalize is nice, but FoL is competing with Shield Bash actually. And yeah, even if FoL were a lot better, it would have a hard time being justified IMO because it has to compete with those 2.
: Font of Life is underwhelming, even if you hit 5000 HP all it'll heal is 55 over 1.75 seconds
I'd rather them set the ratio to be something that makes sense instead of just a terrible way to easily activate Ardent Censor.
: Things i do not like in TFT
: But...spamming taunts and dances are not even toxic most of the time. It's just funny and fun to do. Not everything has to be so serious, and sometimes a little taunting can be fun as long as it doesn't get toxic.
Use them all you want I don't care just don't abuse the fact that the playback for them is bugged, please.
: Aftershock + Lux Support is Still the Core Problem
Aftershock was already nerfed for mages. I suppose they could tweak the changes that they made, but it would make tanks better with aftershock than they already are. Are you sure you want to ask for that?
Barkley (NA)
: Auto-combining items just feels bad.
How about we are allowed to disassemble items(including removing them from units), but only while the carousel event is happening? I notice that I can't do anything with my bench or my board while the carousel event is happening. Would be nice to be able to do something before or after it's my turn to pick something off of it. Yeah, it's cool to watch the others run around and pick things but sometimes I'd rather attend to something else.

Barkley (NA)
: Please remove pings from TFT
Pings aren't even half as bad as the spamming emote/joke/taunt/dance or whatever it is that the avatars do. Players don't even wait for the damn function to finish, they spam the button so that it sounds unlike how it's supposed to sound. This abuse has existed in the game for years and they still haven't fixed it so that the command just follows through instead of allowing only the beginning part of it to be heard again and again and again and again and again times infinity. When there's a flood of gifted subscriptions, Streamlabs on Twitch doesn't try to destroy our ear drums by playing only the beginning part of the notification again and again and again. Instead, it plays the entire notification as many times as commanded to. That's how the pressing a button to taunt or whatever function is being pressed should perform.
: Why creating a ranked mode in a full random game ? (A.K.A T.F.T)
I'm guessing it's like because the game is kind of like Poker.
: TFT is too random to be a game of skill
Honestly, I think they broke the RNG in this latest update. I got 3 Red Buffs in one game, a single opponent in one game had 3 or 4 Spears of Shojin, and just now I had 3 Cursed Blades in a game. And I've been seeing stuff like Nidalee show up once in the first 2-or-3-dozen rounds or more. She's a 1 gold cost unit for crying out loud.

Pxerkza (EUNE)
: after the latest drop rate chances i personally dislike it having to fight with 1 star units against 3 star units is even more of a problem now at least before people could actively strategize to get the 3stars now it's pure luck
Maybe triple star units should only require 2 double star units instead of 3 double star units? Not sure how I feel about that though, I just notice that it's rare that I ever get a triple star anything. If anything, I might be getting them more often after the changes, but that could just be a misconception based on small sample size. And then they could add a way to separate them into 2 double star units in case you'd rather have that for some reason. Although I will comment that I absolutely love that they combine automatically. I'd like to be able to remove items and potentially even disassemble them. I hate getting a large rod on someone that doesn't use the spell damage. Or seeing a tear on someone that I want for my army but doesn't use mana.

Last I checked, Shaco's boxes are bugged and don't even work correctly.

Not sure how relevant this fact is to the discussion, but he's not as good as he used to be due to the trap bug.
: Why are the TFT beta rewards Mystery Emotes and not, idk, eggs?
Well, it wouldn't be good for them to give you only stuff you would use. They want beta participants to buy something at least. I got the little rune dude. He looks really puny but if he gets leveled up throughout the game, eventually he gets big enough that he actually looks a lot less strange and more normal. Still not as interesting as his double and triple star forms of course. I think we would do well to not underestimate the appearance of our avatars based on just their level 1 form. Furthermore, just the fact that now not most people will have the same avatar is really nice and makes the game feel a bit more complete and professional IMO.
Pxerkza (EUNE)
: The new 2 and 3 cost increased chances are too early in the game
I like it but I think the balance of some of the units isn't that great. Overall though, I think they've done a better job balancing this game than the regular game, even if the RNG breaks the balance a bit. I don't know if the game is fun, but it's certainly a kind of RNG that for me isn't frustrating. People don't play Minesweeper or Sudoku because they are fun. They play them because they are a puzzle which challenges the mind and helps keep it healthy. That's what TfT has become and I respect it for that.

Same here(well, it's exaggerating to call it always but if someone takes what I was going for then it definitely happens) but after managing to get first place even while getting a random I stopped caring so much.
: Increase queue lockout timers and increase the reset timer. One day is a joke for a penalty reset, and 5 minutes is a joke of a delay. I'm not in favor of increasing LP/MMR penalties, but longer time penalties would be great. And, of course, penalties for dodging ARAM and ARURF, as well as any other gamemode where you don't decide your champion, needs to be quintupled. Tripled at the **absolute** least. It should take longer to get past the dodge than to just play out the game where you didn't get the champ you wanted. ######Edit: I had the wrong words entirely lmfao.
I agree that dodging in a mode where it's impossible to dodge unless you closed the client should be penalized very severely if nothing else changes about dodging. As for draft games, I think closing the client should simply get you a loss immediately. Full LP penalty. There's no reason it should be any other way. If people want to not be held hostage the only thing they can do is leave the game. All enabling dodging does for Riot is allow players to decide before the game even starts that they cannot win, and that goes against he Summoner's Code, if they even remember what that stood for anymore, then they would have removed the ability to dodge already. If someone's AFK in a draft they could be treated the same as AFK in the game...you can report them for AFK and if it's true they can be punished however is appropriate. I don't really get why they feel like they have to make it complicated.
: Im okay with dodgers. Id rather have someone dodge then play a lane they are gonna be terrible in and or throw the game so everyone takes an LP loss. Or if someone doesn't get the lane they want they can just troll. It's not worth it. I actually think the dodge system is fine as it is
Maybe for normal draft. For ranked, it just makes no sense.
: But he totally and on purpose to prove his point left the classic "Birds of a feather flock together". Toxic ppl will watch toxic streamers. LoL is creating frustration bcs it's teamgame, frustrated ppl are more likely to show toxic behaviour and they are probably more likely to watch toxic streamers. Watching toxic stream won't make you magicaly toxic, there are more factors in game. Also xj9 himself is kinda shady person, here is [reddit thread](https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/31xvnf/who_is_xj9_and_what_has_he_done/cq60x9u/) (he did pretend to be girl tho), [another one](https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/4gxlni/what_did_xj9_do/), you can find many thing yourself.
The toxic players aren't the only problematic players however. Many players will think that being toxic is not a problem because high profile streamers are like the toxic players in their game. Then they will not take seriously anyone that has anything negative to chat about the toxic players. They will pass it off as something like "it's just a game" instead of realizing that the game isn't fun for people that wanted teamwork and a fair match. It's not even a game if it's not fun. It's just doing our time until the match is over. Also, it's possible that he was including himself mentally when he tells us that streamers need to be banned. Just because he might be guilty of whatever terrible things doesn't make his comment untrue. There are a lot of people that admit to being bad. Not everyone is going to lie about it. As for me, I try watching toxic streams but they make me sick (emotionally), so I stop doing it.
: I'm not saying it will go away, and I'm not saying people weren't like this before, but I think it's a fair consensus that it has gone worse overtime and in my opinion they contribute significantly to its perpetuation.
Yeah, the issue for them is how to deal with the problem without it backfiring on them somehow. If they don't think there's financial gain for them to clean up the morality of the player base, then it seems like they won't do it. The reason the honor system got reworked was they figured it gave them an excuse to introduce free content that players could buy more of in a gambling system which in turn would grant them money, especially considering some of that free content was essentially advertisement of the purchasable products, and when gambling fails to yield the desired items, the items can be purchased outright. And for the people that don't want purchasable items but older items, there's a reason for them to spend on the content as well because they can then access such items. It seems that it was a good decision, and it made them money. But they need some way to make money off of dealing with the twitch streamers I guess or they won't do it?

Its nothing new and for the most part I doubt it will ever go away.
There is a deeper reason LoL is toxic than just twitch streamers, but Riot can exert some measure of control over this realm contrary to what whoever might have you believe and they could do so, but the deeper reason can get in the way of this, or find another way to keep the world toxic, whether in LoL or outside of it. We can't DM/PM here but if you want to message me on twitch my username there is RayTeamStrategy. I can explain what I know if you want to learn more. I personally think it's silly that you were down-voted so much. I went to up-vote you and saw it go from -1 to -4. I guess they saw your realistic perspective as being pessimistic. They want to see change, and quite frankly I do too and I agree that Riot can do more than they are doing to combat it but I guess maybe they are worried that if they try to combat toxicity that their efforts could backfire or some silly reason like that.
Terozu (NA)
: Really, really, no you don't. I don't know how to play adc worth shit, I full well know how to protect and adc, ward and trap people for my team.
@Invexus, there's more to support than just being a lane partner. Maybe you know this, but I've noticed the average support player doesn't. @Terozu, if you're really performing well then it's either being helped by a good lane partner, or you're overestimating your performance, or you would be a fine ADC. Nothing you are claiming makes any sense. You could learn other slots by watching replays as an example, but if you're doing that to up your support game then it's going to mean you'll know what to do when playing other slots. Will you be able to perform? Maybe not, but that doesn't mean you won't know what you're supposed to do.
: the people who dont agree with you are clueless. humans naturally mimic others they hang around/watch. never said "bruh" before but now your friend/streamer says it? You'll find yourself saying "bruh" without even thinking of the words. it is natural. why does this happen? Because we used to come from groups and be a family, so us knowing each other, speaking the same way, happened naturally. now we have people who copy the way people speak that live 1000's of miles away and don't think anything of it. your average gamer will not accept this and act like people are individuals when in reality people bandwagon whatever is popular (how to think/act/play, you name it). every small bit of toxicity that happens and isn't dealt with properly adds onto the problem. there should easily be a few dozen ID banned players for how toxic they are but riot doesn't care unless it's for public PR.
A sensible response. I agree with all of that.
: More like here's a good way to get items. Get a shop in the game. Each item is worth gold. Save gold for the items or use them for rerolls.
Guessing they could also introduce another currency which is only used for items.

And to think that we had a good ADC, and we had a good support! But they weren't on their damn roles! We had all we needed to win that game! If only the match maker had a brain. If an ADC player can't play support, or a Support player can't play ADC, then they aren't a very good bot lane player :3 Of all people to autofill the role, they should know best what their partner needs/expects.
You're right, but he's probably talking about a game of low average skill where players are being 'bullied' by Riot into learning more than just one team slot.
: why wouldnt they just swap roles? honestly, the easiest and laziest solution for riot would be to put a tiny symbol onto the bottom right corner of your champ select box that indicates the main (and maybe even secondary) role you qued up with. could save a lot of pain. especially in those cases. they could immediately identify that they just need to swap roles.
Yeah I've been wanting them to add an indicator for what players chose ever since normal draft came out.
: Often times there are games where ill queue mid/top and my friend top/jg then i’ll get auto filled jg and him mid. It makes no sense why this would happen but it does, and far more often than it should.
When you get autofilled, the system doesn't care about what your secondary is, it just shoves you into whatever the team needs. I think it's always been like that. Some time ago they changed the primary/secondary ratio because some people didn't want to get their secondary choice so often. Probably autofill wasn't working correctly before then, but now it still isn't and the autofill is therefore happening more often because of the primary/secondary change to make a mess of a system. It's that or people are pathological liars and Riot should probably put in working indicators to prove if what people are claiming about autofill is correct but they probably aren't going to do that because easily exposing flaws in their matchmaking isn't something they want to enable or they would have done that a long time ago.
