Riot needs an easy skin to sell bruh. Yasuo is it. I don't very much like the skin for yasuo, but as a Yasuo main I buy all of the skins plus chromas on principle of it being my main and my favorite champion. A lot of Yasuo's are hardstuck like that and will buy every Yasuo skin. Meaning Riot pockets a lot of money, but that is okay because Riot can't function for free. Instead of Yasuo though, I would be asking my why 3 female adc are getting the skin and one couldn't have been swiped out instead. We didn't need the new champion, Kai'sa, and caityln, all three ranged adc, getting the skin.
I was about to say something, but you were very honest about being a Yasuo main so I have to respect you for it lol.

: Star Guardian 2019 predictions!
{{champion:145}} Because she needs a 6th skin asap. She has had 5 this year, why not FUCKING ADD ANOTHER?!! (sorry i'm just salty is all)
: "We don't pick favorites for skins"
Yea, after I saw Kaisa, who’s already getting yet another skin, alongside an ADC (also same ADC getting a prestige version too) and Yasuo ... it really shows Riot doesn’t give a shit about their less popular champions. All about the money!!! And here I thought Ezreal and Lux were bad enough ... ooh boy.

: Is Qiyana the Seal Sister?
Would actually be pretty cool if she stole the powers of the Seal Sister by obtaining the demigod's weapon and is posing like a demigod, hence her name. Then all the other demigods show up and knock on her door ...

She kind of looks like a bi- ... moody princess who got inspired to be like Sivir, but is also a fan of Avatar the Last Airbender.

: the new mord hit the mark so hard it died and came back to life to serve him in undeath
Mord's splash art is like a Dark Souls boss that slowly kills your will to continue playing the game because of how hard he is, and the 2nd phase is him bringing you to the death realm.

: Question: How do you view Riot?
I love the game, I don't like Riot for their favoritism in champions. I get it, business needs to make money. But then you focus on nothing but trying to make money, and you suddenly lose sight on what made League so great in the first place. Also fuck the MMR system. It's totally ruining how ranked works ... it's a coin flip every game I swear.
: Just realized why Riot might want a forced 50% win rate on people
Did bots just storm my thread and downvote it into oblivion .. ?? Or did people really hate this theory that badly? {{sticker:sg-janna}} (tbh this thread has only been up for 20+ minutes soooooo ...)
: I mean, it's mostly just how any decent MMR system works - the better you do the higher you get matched, and you eventually hit (or exceed) your actual skill level, which means more losses until you're back to where you *can* win. Although I have heard a few times that the system *does* sometimes put you in unfair matches to see if you really deserve to climb or fall, to prevent just a string of bad luck causing you to demote significantly, or a string of good luck causing you to promote too far. I do have a counterpoint, though - Losing a lot feels shitty, yes, but winning *every* fight feels shitty too. It makes the game *boring* if there's no fights that put up a challenge. That's one of the key points of a boss fight - It's supposed to feel *challenging*, and ideally you'll lose a time or two against it (or, at the least, come rather close to it), while the mooks leading up to the boss should make you feel like an unstoppable badass.
I agree with you, although ... if that was the case, smurfs wouldn't really be around. People **_love_** to win, it's just human nature. While I completely understand that winning too much would get stall eventually, the fact is people tend to do so because they want to feel big and accomplished, even if they're not having fun. When a high elo player feels upset, due to the game being too hard now (or in this case, winning shit tier LP like 11 a win, while losing costs you 23+ LP for players in Diamond and above) ... it's no wonder they resort to smurfing and curb stomp low elo players. There are SO many smurfs running around, but so long as they continue playing League, I doubt Riot cares all that much. Plus new accounts made means most likely, those smurfs will buy skins / boosting stuff which is money in Riot's pocket. As for the matchmaking? On paper, it is a very valid and wise mechanic for a system to do. But as of now, it hasn't done a good or even remotely decent job at performing such task. I feel it's incredibly unfair to anyone who's winning a tad bit more than losing, because once the system steps in, it goes hard on you and losing streaks means you might not recover from it. Riot's system is very flawed, and certainly not working as intended ... or is, but in a very unfair way. Hence why I think it's acting in favor of newer / poorly performing players who want to climb and win.

: Just got a Silver 4-1 Duo in my Gold 3 ranked game.
Reminds me of all the Diamond+ smurfs too, going into games and ruining the matchmaking system even further. Now, is it 100% their fault? Fuck no, Riot made it where Diamond people only get 15 or less LP and their losses are abysmal 22+ or some shit. At this point, Riot needs to rework their entire ranked system because it's a cluster fuck.
: Something seriously needs done about the artificial elo wall known as promos
Cause they want you to grind since it'll mean you'll be continuing to play their game? The more you play, the more tempted you are to buy their skins / stuff which means you'll want to climb to show off how good you are at their game. Basically, they want you addicted.
: Splash Art of Invictus Gaming World Skin
First time I ever seen a Worlds Team look so .... majestic. Usually the vibe I get whenever a team wins is "Oh the splash looks like an E-Sports Team cause they are" but this? It looks like some kind of high fantasy villainy splash and I love it lmao.

: New icon featuring Morde on PBE
I just hope he's the big baddie of League of Legends, kind of like how Thanos is the main antagonist of Marvel (or at least, The Avengers). Have Ryze be the guy trying to stop him from collecting all the special runes /artifacts too.

: Cute Evelynn art stuff
At first, I was going to say "Too bad Evelynn is a heartless demon that preys on those who are optimistic and cannot be sympathetic whatsoever" but then I remember reading up on KDA Evelynn's bio and it literally says "Evelynn has very few who are close to her, but those that are, she's very protective of" meaning Evelynn isn't a total monster. Great drawing by the way.
: A Critique on Scathlocke/Lore Team's view on Good and Evil
While i'm not an author or talented writer that has a degree in literature ... even I have to admit Riot's been trying too hard with making the good guys 'questionable' while the bad guys actually aren't all that bad. By trying to make everyone line up on the gray scale, it starts to stray from reality and more into this territory that good guys are actually really bad with one justified excuse while the bad guys are actually misunderstood whom only seem evil but are mostly anti-heroes if you think about it. As someone who's been into role play online with people, a major rule we tend to have is .... **Make your characters fleshed out naturally without trying to complicate everything to justify something**. In other words, it's okay to have them do questionable things, but don't make it so borderline bad and then try to say "But he's considered good!" when it's just going to complicate how the other RPers feel towards your character.
: Matchmaking is Horrible
Yea, for the life of me I COULD NOT WIN a single game. Now i've been demoted because my laners keep feeding. Don't get me wrong, i've fed a little here and there, but I mean ... if you look at my match history, you'll see my jg / top laners hardly helping or tribute anything except assisting the enemy team. The matchmaking right now is HORRIBLE as hell.
: I just feel like every ranked I go into is just a shit show this season
It feels really unfair this season. I can't get out of Gold II despite being on the brink of my promos because they'll purposely place someone on a losing streak into my game, or i'll get people below my rank on my team vs the team that's my rank or higher. Feels VERY infuriating to deal with, not to mention I can't even play {{champion:89}} because champs like {{champion:67}} {{champion:63}} {{champion:143}} {{champion:114}} {{champion:11}} {{champion:75}} {{champion:23}} ect. will utterly destroy me late game, despite trying my best to CC them and such. Not even worth playing a tank, just go mage or enchanter with damage items instead.

: Reddit at the Moment
They may of gotten free skins ... but they’ll never have the dank banner I have on Eclispe Leona. That is why I don’t mind, I support Riot and my love for the game. But with that said, Riot messed up pretty badly lol. Won’t defend them because it was ultimately their fault for this mess.
: Riot let bug abusers get thousands of skins for free
All Riot has to do is see who hasn’t gotten that many skins compared to those who’ve gotten a crap ton of skins in such a duration and if said people purchased any RP or not that day. Even if they had 10k RP, there’s no way they’d get all the skins since that’d require far more RP. However if Riot doesn’t have the data or records / system to show them the details ... oooooohhh boy.
: Just looked over your op.gg and saw a few interesting things i'd like to point out. 1. You've been platinum for three seasons now and i'd like to ask what you've improved on. 2. Your last ranked match was vs. a Master Yi, might be why you're making this post. 3. You seem to run the same build every single game expecting a different outcome. Let me give you some advice. Improve your play, purchase more control wards, build according to the enemy, adapt your playstyle, don't engage when not needed, and press your lead effectively. With these simple tips you can climb and not worry about "damage being too high" because let me tell you something. That isn't the reason why you're losing, thank you for this post and please respond with any questions. Thanks.

That isn't the reason why you're losing, thank you for this post and please respond with any questions. Thanks. .. Um .. I don't know what my rank has anything to do with my concern for the game. Nearly everyone has been saying how damage is too high, from Brownze to Masters and onward. While I appreciate you trying to help, that opening kind of put me off, since it shouldn't count against my argument. If a Silver player expresses how damage is too high and most of the boards agrees with him / her ... then rank shouldn't matter. Don't get me wrong, pro play vs casual play does have an impact but the overall scheme of things? We're all in this.

Even with items like Frozen Heart, Thornmail, or anything else- I will die under 5 seconds when a nearly completed build ADC / Hyper Carry like {{champion:67}} or {{champion:236}} exists. Even if I haven’t died, we’re ahead and / or the enemy is bad, it doesn’t matter at all. The damage creep and insane burst is what’s hurting this game, removing any element of strategy, positioning and outplaying. It’s all about who fires first and who deals the most damage now.

: Nerf a champion and give a terrible reason to go along with it.
Every time {{champion:79}} uses an ability, runs, or is physically active period, increases his chance of automatically dying due to a heart attack.

: I find my biggest problem is lack of health often times. Ya I get the Relic shield start but I usually follow up with either Locket of Iron solari or one of two between Zeke's and Knight's Vow. And with the amount of burst and true damage augmented in the game, It's quite easy to take me out after going in if the team doesn't follow up at all or if the w goes on cd.

Darn, now that I think about it, by 15 minutes in I don’t even have 2k health yet whether we’re ahead or not. Because of Leona’s platstyle, I have to have faith that my team follows up. Usually they do but I die too soon to even help any further :( ...
: If you feel yourself blowing up more when going in maybe start peeling back with your ADC rather than hard solo engaging. Every game is different and situational for what your role in teamfights are so depends on the game. What runes you using other than aftershock?

At this point, I don’t even know what to bring on her besides the obvious. Nothing seems to really help me in surviving but rather, deal more damage or get some little hp / growth out of it which is a joke in the long run lol. I like Biscuits because I need mana sometimes and the 5% CDR for everything but yea, not much else feels like it’s doing a good job.
Rioter Comments
: Alright...so this is somehow punishable now?
Going to say it again, mods are people too. No matter how much you want them too, some will be biased and remove stuff _they_ think is a violation while allowing other things to slip through if they deem it ok. Happens so often, heck it happened to me twice outside of these forums on other sites. This issue, is one of those cases. Don't punish the OP, he did literally nothing wrong at all.

: Skins virtually never are available on patch day. Patch cycles last 2 weeks, but Riot doesn't like the game going a full 2 weeks with no updates. So normally skins come out sometime in the middle of the patch. The leona skill will come out sometime between today and 2 weeks from now.

: Champion Revealed: Neeko, The Curious Chameleon
I can already tell this will be a nightmare in team fights. Imagine being an assassin, and your target goes into the fog of war / bush / ect. Suddenly, THREE of them walk out, different directions. You go for one, but it's the clone. Now the prime target and Neeko destroy you in that split second you made the wrong choice. Repeat that for every fight, or lane. Neeko in the right hands is going to be a dreadful experience for many mark my words XD
