: Do supports have enough health?
Seems like a tough choice if youre winning you can keep going power support items and if you're losing... {{item:3001}} {{item:3110}} {{item:3102}} it is. But now that I know to focus on the armor/MR I will be smarter about my builds.. There are plenty of good tanky support items. Most of them are newer items that I forget about and the "recommended items" is a joke.{{item:3190}} {{item:3800}} {{item:3118}} {{item:3050}} . Oh... thats just 4 items to chose from....Only 1 MR option? We need more "escape from cc" items... like, theres only {{item:3102}} which breaks easily and is never up, {{item:3140}} for the ad champs, {{item:3814}} for assassins, and {{item:3157}} for mages. But {{item:3157}} and {{item:3026}} Only help you if you win the fight, otherwise they are just delayed death sequences that actually punish you by delaying your respawn.

: Sona and Nami are known for having low hp in early You can get 3 shot from a Draven or MF Q But later you get tons of MR and HP from items
damn I just died as bard to morg sivir q's and one morg w. 100-0 couldnt move , deep under tower, only took those 2 hits and died to morgs soil. And the latency was jumping up every time I tried to fight so it was making me do the bungee cord dance all over the map. The game is so punishing.
: ITT: People seriously discussing a thread where the OP said Tristana had 1700 hp at level 4.
Yeah it was probably level 9 or something. I'll fix that.
: Can kinda see this as strategy games have had this for ages. That being said, that's why you're supposed to go for deepwards, so that you can keep track of everyone and be proactive as to where to go. Being reactive is good and all, but relying on this type of message will have you constantly showing up late to the party.
Maybe its something only bronze and silver players have trouble with. And it would help the whole team when a jungler starts getting attacked at scuttle crab and no one reacts to help him because he doesn't ping and no one notices.
: Dude, you need to get your eyes checked then.
You know what, you're completely right. What was I thinking. That this game actually was inclusive to people with visual disabilities? I should just not play anymore.

: Ways to fix accidental dodged games.
$%#( (*%#(*&$ (*& Yeah I just did it again... so the end alert sound is "thump thump thump" 10x and then...... the boot! lol... it hovers on 0 seconds and ya... its kind of a hypnotic thumping. I'm so used to automatically being locked in or playing ARAM. like .. come on i picked the character... just lock it in for me ffs..

: There was a problem selecting your champion. Please select again.
same i forgot to locking my incorrect champion cause I was clicking it. I had to play cho' gath support the other day because of it. We won. It happens when you accidentally right click on a champion before selecting it, it opens a menu then you click somewhere and it locks up, sometimes selecting a random champion.
: help pls a problem selecting your champion please try again
ya this causing me to pick the wrong champions and miss selections because im madly clicking the one i want and it wont change.

: Sort Annie's tibbers out! and auto smite
I came here to say the same thing. Why change it for jungle but not change it off when I'm NOT jungle. Also it seems like you cant haev viktors storm attack someone , only moves where they were when you clicked? I could be wrong about that one. ALSO proximity click that makes your character attack a tower when you tried to click as close as possible to the 1 hp champion beside it. PRIORITIZE PROXIMITY AUTOATTACK CLICKS!

: Urgot ult on Tryn?
I just died to his ult as tahm kench with like a 1000 hp shield. This is so stupid. You can't even dodge it. He hits you with it from off screen. Its basically karthus ult on 1 person with no ability to prevent it whatsoever.
Kei143 (NA)
: As someone that plays on a potatoe, I actually need every second to select my runes, especially if I'm last pick. Think about the scenario where you are last pick, you are thinking about the best champ to play, after you decided your champ, you know that if you lock in you only have 10 seconds to change your runes. It takes 3 seconds to load the runes window, each rune you click takes 1.5 seconds to visually show you clicked it. Sometimes you can't click on what you want because the hovered text from the rune blocks below covers your selection and have to wait 3 seconds before that text disappears. Sometimes you are changing your mind and have to change runes and those secondary rune's FIFO system is messing you up. It also takes 3 seconds to save the runes and close the window so you can lock in, and then now you are left with 10 seconds to change the remaining runes and summoner spells. I ate 3 queue dodges in the past month because I couldn't save and close the runes in time to lock in my champ. That thumping sound doesn't do much as I've turned down the sounds of LoL, since I need to keep my environment quiet (baby sleeping when I get time to play) and the visuals don't mean much when your eyes are focused on clicking runes as fast as you can, but the VFXs are not updating as fast as it should.
I've gotten a bit better at getting all my stuff picked on time but theres lots to change and the time is down to the last second. I even watched a tyler 1 stream and he was picking his summoner spells in the last second after changing masteries. To be fair, the mastery page also covers half the timer so I can only see the top half of the numbers which is a lot less visual representation to trigger my peripheral vision on a 32 inch monitor. Furthermore the timer is on the top of the screen and since the sun is in the sky the top of the eye has the most light adaptation in the neurology aspect. Meaning it filters or ignores light above your center of vision. It also doesnt notify you AT ALL if someone on the enemy team steals your character... so youre going in masteries and then you see its your turn to pick and youre go to click lockin and see that nothing is selected. Now you have to rush to hit the "support characters" icon to filter, watch that resort for .4s, then you have to change the sort by mastery because it always defaults to alphabetical and find your character as fast as possible, aannddd I just got booted from another match because it wont auto select, I MUST hit lock in. They already removed the requirement to lock in your bans because of how bad that made matchmaking. Auto lock in my champion and if i don't want to play it then I'll leave on my own. You don't need to do it for me riot.

: Snowdown tokens exchange for blue essence one at a time. 68 to go!
I had something like 68 and I bought the picture and a key so I only had to click the forge button about 28 times. And then it allowed me to convert the blue essence reward into blue essence in bundles of 10. Oh yeah look at that I wrote right in the title that I had 68. Good old memory, sometimes she still works. I think i started with 74 though. Only clicked 6 times before I got annoyed and came here to whine about it.

So.... you don't own a lot of skins? BTW I appreciate that they kept the shop open so long. Thanks riot!
: How effective is the reporting system?
I've been chat banned a couple times and had my account banned for a week once. It takes a few styles or reports received. The first is everyone on your team reporting you. That alone doesn't guarantee you'll get banned, but 2 games in a row of it does. If one person reports you in consecutive games you can still play at least 5 games being toxic and getting reported. Most reports don't seem to activate right away but if you are constantly getting reported your account will actively get shut down even in the middle of a game. The amount of reports you receive depends on how offended everyone in the game was. If your team agrees that you weren't contributing they probably won't report that person for pestering you about it. The statement has to actually be toxic such as saying words like "you suck Sivir" (yes that's how I got banned, bronze finals and an ADC that didn't know how to team fight and i voiced my opinion wrongly.) It is an effective technique. I just received honour level 3 because I haven't raged in a very very long time and I am more focused on providing my own fun and not depending on a single member of my team. I just got unbanned from Overwatch because that game is infuriating and if you get reported there you immediately get put into "reported queue" and all your games are full of people who want to lose, throwers, afkers, instalockeronetricks, ragers. I was just being sarcastic and rude. Most Overwatch players do nothing to diffuse anger and that community is just generally more toxic because you start the game team fighting and depending on each other. The key is to constructively let players know how they let you down or disappointed you. I don't think you can get reported for saying "wtf bastion it was 2v1 and you ran away instead of shooting him, just shoot the guy and we will kill him instantly, you turned your back on him as if you wanted him to execute you without putting up a fight even." A lot of players seem to think that typing at all is toxic and unproductive. :) Thing is if you let your team know you aren't happy with the teams performance because: "we aren't getting any kills in team fights because no one is targeting Soraka." How will your team ever know what you've observed as the reason for you losing the battle... and adapt to not lose the next fight. This is why we type. And when people resist and say "just shut up and play" or "worry about yourself" its counterproductive to that persons play style. Maybe if a person is being toxic its because they know they should be able to win but cant because of factors outside of their control and its frustrating when no one listens or considers their opinion simply because they are giving an order or starting with an insult.

Indeed Ive only ever sent one report in because I was so insanely pissed off. I was in my promos for plat with 2 wins and 2 losses and this guy decided to get upset after first 5 min and run it down in a perfectly winnable game. I recorded it, sent it to support, and after a few days the account hasn't played a game since(more than 6 months have passed) so i assumed he got permad. And for an even more happy ending I eventually got into plat. On the other hand I was playing nexus blitz a month ago and some dude typed the nword in all chat not once but twice (no funny spelling either just the n word straight) I reported him for hate speech post game and then check the following week, he played the game everyday for the next week after so he never got the 14 day hate speech suspension.
That isnt hate speech. Despite people not wanting you to say that word... its not actually illegal to just say a word.
: 1v1 and 2v2 mode!
Weird that's when I was actually playing every day and reading all the patch notes. I don't recall ever seeing those game modes or reading anything about them. Overwatch has all the gamemodes you could ever want.
: The last time Snowdown Showdown was released, almost no one played it.
When did that happen? Must have been when I got Overwatch and changed my main game. And that doesn't dismiss a sweet 2v2 mode. Theres other options too like a defense game where they just keep sending bigger and bigger waves at you. They released gamemodes for like 4 days over fri-monday no wonder no one played it. "Hey lets release this product for 4 days only and not advertise it to anyone but the people who already consume our other main product every day and then use that as a gauge to see if this product will be successful or not." Said no marketing team ever.
: 1v1 and 2v2 mode!
Wait this got 522 views and only one downvote? I cant find it on the gameplay boards at all when I scroll down like 50 pages. Suspicious.

: "Riot we really want to tone down damage"
Yes please make this game fun again. Its not fun for most people. Like the support and the tank. You miss 1 CC and its GG. Its all about the pro scene that's all. Its no longer enjoyable to watch someone get assassinated. You went from soccer scores to football scores. From Normal Difficulty Diablo to Hell Difficulty numbers. We want Nightmare Baseball scores okay. Get it right.
Hi lm Zoe (EUNE)
: Why doesnt just Riot add permanent URF?
Please give us Dominion+Urf permanently. I'm getting tired of only being able to play ARAM because I don't really like summoners rift. I spent like $450 on my account so... my opinion matters. I am a long time player. if 100% of players want URF... why don't you give us URF. We will get bored of it after a month or two. some people will only play urf. Some people will never play it. Stop trying to be such a control freak. It doesn't look good on you. And this is one of the reasons I STOPPED investing in my league account. I loved dominion too. I played it less than ARAM and more than SR. I know you don't care about your players though because we've been asking forever.

: While I do notice the contributions you make to the Boards, the AtC Gurus are primarily chosen based on their support of their Ask the Community sub-board. If you bolster your activity in this sub-board, we can definitely re-visit this decision; you can also feel free to reach out on the Boards Discord if you ever have any questions or want feedback!
If you already know who qualifies then why are you asking everyone? Its a publicity stunt to make the whole community feel more involved when in fact only like ... maybe what 50 people are qualified? Send them private invitations. omg. You just just love working inefficiently as possible dont you lol. hey riot, hire me as your efficiency manager.
: > If you are running such a strong advertisement campaign then things must not be looking up for the company. Yep. CokaCola is going out of business. Apple is struggling, and Google is scared they can't pay rent next month. After all, ads mean a company isn't doing well, right?

I never once said "They're not doing well" "Things aren't looking up" - is probably very accurate as most people who want to try league have tried it and moved on or stayed. Growth cant last forever. Also the skins they've been making lately are highly cultivated based on the sales stats of all the other skins that sold well and what their unique features were.
: So many Ads
Lol... I haven't seen a coke commercial in ages. They usually play it around Christmas. Google advertises? I don't think I've ever ONCE seen an ad for google. Also... those companies you mentioned are way out of League's league so you can't conclude that their advertising campaigns have the same objectives. RIOT is NOT a household name so their advertising objectives aren't weighted the same. Almost everyone has tried coke. People are either going to buy it or not. Some people are sporadic and need to be reminded occasionally. Not everyone has tried league of legends and a mild amount of people who used to play league of legends have moved on to other games. Hmm... Also the production value of their ads were very low. It's nice of them to include their major supporters/streamers in the business finally. I just feel like it was too late to capture as large an audience as they were hoping for. There will always be gamer's who play very few game titles. Steady is fine, but it isn't good for expanding businesses. I saw this as a desire to expand their business because it was no longer expanding as it used to be and a lot of the long time players already have all the skins they want. The commercials haven't played in a few weeks so I wonder how it all went and how long it will be until they start playing them again.

: Nexus Blitz patch notes
I didn't like it at first because of how random and extreme it is. It starts to make sense after you play it about 4 times. Still feels like a stomp every game. I think we had 2 comebacks out of 20 games. And seems to heavily favour assassins and no one seems to want to play jungle. I played fill in all 20 games and only got lane 1 time, and then someone left so I didn't even get to play lane ever.

Seems to me that it's not worth even wasting my time trying to get into the field. From what I remember; companies want you to have a degree in computer science before they would even consider giving you a job in game testing. I remember when I first played my friends xbox 360. I found a bug in every game I tried lol. It was .... unbelievable. Seeing a bug and fixing it are two different things my dood. Because code isn't like a hole in a wall, you cant patch it up and fix it. One simple fix here might cause another issue there, fix that and suddenly towers are invincible, fix that and now teemo is purple. So my recommendation is to go get a degree and learn how to fix bugs so you can work for a company, do more than point at a bug and say "fix it," and you'll get paid because you'll be the one fixing it.
Never said I didn't know how to fix them. Just said I don't have a degree.

I used to make these really long bug lists and I made a couple posts with these long lists of bug fixes and improvements. ***A lot of them actually started to get done after about 6 months, over the course of the next year.*** > >So... Was I ever rewarded for that in any way? Yes. You just said that many of those fixes and improvements happened, so what you got *was a better game*. If you're looking for a reward for making posts suggesting improvements/changes, I would recommend looking into a career in QA or Playtesting or Game Design. The boards are not -- and never were intended to be -- a place to receive rewards for helping out, other than the game as a whole improving for everyone.

: So...YOU are more worried about money or some other form of compensation for work you volunteered, and not the game.
Hmm... I guess I'm just full of myself, thinking my observations are missed by others and my ideas are unique and efficient. It's not money, its free skins I want. And as far as it being a better game.... no.. for everything they fix they go and decide to mess up a bunch of other things. If I have amazing ideas about how to test characters for balance and create a standard for character and item balance in the game... yes I believe it's worth being rewarded because if they only have to staff half the programmers after implementing a system and procedure to balance the game... then yes my ideas might be worth upwards of 30 000$/year.
: Why I think game makers just care about money and not the game.
Can't wait for this post to get buried in 2 days and never responded to more than 3 times by the forum enthusiasts.
