: People act like honour 5 is hard to get and means you're "honourable"
I'm inclined to agree to a degree, but I wonder what the actual statistics are behind honor levels. Like: - average # of games per player in each honor level - community % breakdown in each honor level - most common punishments among each honor level etc etc

I can bet my right arm that Riot's overlords forbid them from talking about this mess, because of the looming threat of sanctions. I highly doubt Riot cares what Tencent thinks - if Riot felt that Tencent were causing them harm, they would be more than capable of finding another investor or even just planning a buyback of the company. The issue that arises from Tencent is that the Chinese government can more easily monitor many things related to League or Riot - increasing the potential harm. While it's possible that the Chinese government will never see that random 3000 subscriber youtuber say one comment about it, it's more likely that they would if that person was a League streamer, because of Tencent.

Having 50% winrate suggests matchmaking is working perfectly, because you're being put against teams of equal level as you. Why would you be mad about that. That's not sabotage, that's literally Riot doing what they're supposed to do. What you're suggesting is that Riot purposely matches players against trolls to force them into a 50%, which is clearly not true shown by the race to challenger players who played ~100 games up to challenger and didn't encounter what you're claiming.

You're excuse that there's no trolls or <50% wr players in higher elos is just flat wrong. If you ask any consistent masters+ player, I guarentee they can list of 3+ players they know immediately to be bad in that elo. There are trolls, inters, and bad players in every elo. There's a "bottom of the barrel" masters player the same as theres a "almost challenger" masters player. Your stance was: "Even if your'e a god at this game and faker is like a minion to you your win rate will always stay around 50% and if not riot will force you to lose." Here we have someone that clearly proves you wrong, and your excuse is "oh ya he must not have run into any trolls or bad players on his team". Like, where was he forced to lose? Where was he forced into a 50% wr through these 100+ games? \ and even ignoring him. How did the other people racing to challenger not encounter this supposedly "forced 50% wr" myth too?

How can someone like this exist (and many others), and you still make the argument that league forces a 50% wr when clearly if you're a good enough player you can win.

Jungle camps already do count for more than 1 cs, it's just that it doesn't translate properly into getting the correct stacks of Overgrowth because camps count as 1 unit while their worth is equal to X cs. OP is asking for the overgrowth stacks received from clearing camps to be equal to that as their cs worth, not as the # of units the camp/buff is.
: Ah, so it does. Can you tell I don't jungle? xD What would be a reasonable count, then? If each camp, including single monster camps, count as 4cs...would that be a good metric by which to increment Overgrowth? And, would that be abusable?

And, would that be abusable? actually, funny enough, jungle camps already *do* count for more than 1 minion. Now I don't know the exact metrics, but if you clear blue buff your cs count will already be more than 1. The problem is, it doesn't not translate correctly for overgrowth, because blue buff counts as 1 unit before it counts as X cs so you only get 1 stack of overgrowth, nonequivalent to the actual worth of the buff in terms of CS. A lot of the strong tanks like Rammus, Nunu, and Sej would probably need their hp growth stat nerfed slightly to compensate but I doubt it would break the game.
: Jungle camps are monsters, not minions. It is a distinct difference. Whether Overgrowth should count monsters as well, IDK. It could promote passive, power farming junglers...which is not something I am against. I'm just saying it's something to think about.

I'm just saying it's something to think about. Overgrowth already counts for monsters...it just unfairly counts 1 monster as 1 minion which is not accurate or consistent considering how 1 monster does not != 1 cs score

being reported by 4 people in a game has the same impact as being reported by 1 person in that same game. All a report does is flag the system to check it out, it doesn't skew the system in their favor the more people who reported you.

Those who find offense in things that are not meant to be offensive is the problem. Anything ending with the letters "coon" is now grounds to be punished for (under your argument) simply because people immediately jump to racism over anything else, and the fact that you put the blame on the free-going individual instead of those who are making accusations of racism is appalling. Words only have the power you give them. The only reason one should be offended over something is if it's being used in a negative context, aka namecalling and insults. If someone gets offended by "icecoon" or "racoon", 100% perfectly reasonable innocent names, then that's on them.

It's net neutral against continuous DoTs like {{champion:17}}, better against spellflingers like {{champion:69}}, and strictly worse against any physical poke/DoT as well as single spell-cycle burst mages like {{champion:1}} {{champion:142}} {{champion:518}}. {{item:3065}} exists to build against burst mages, but tanks usually end up needing to build both anyway, alongside 3 armor items, splitting their resistances. Upgrading to {{item:3194}} with a {{item:3065}} already owned is even worse btw. You go from +260% regen to +130.

You go from +260% regen to +130. I get what you're saying, but I don't think it's necessarily bad for the item to be niche against specific types of champs. Tanks can always look towards {{item:3193}} or other items instead. If you're not against a dps mage like {{champion:268}} or {{champion:69}} it's almost always better to be stacking health (that synergies with both resistances) after {{item:3065}} + {{item:3111}} anyways, as it's a natural mitigation to burst damage.
