: >Her dress just feels too fancy and clean, her headdress is almost generic, and the hair...just throws everything off! Totally agree with the hair. The color doesn't really mesh all that well with the rest of her design and it just seems fake, like she's wearing a wig. If anything is going to get changed it definitely needs to be the hair, unless it's somehow connected to her lore. But even in that scenario I still think it would be a really bad design choice.
And.... what’s up with that crown..( is it?) on her hair?? 😳
: Qiyana's design is probably the most boring design I've seen so far for a champion
: Riot has a thigh fetish, the in-game designers specifically, they always just sexualize champions as much as they can whenever they either rework or release them This is evident towards: {{champion:145}} {{champion:39}} {{champion:10}} {{champion:84}} (bit of a stretch) edit: It's nothing new for a Chinese company like tencent though, the moba games are wayyy more sexualized
sickening. cmon it's 21st century. get over this stereo type, Can we do better than this Riot?
: The hair is not the most disturbing part about Qiyana's design
Not only the thighs though.. The whole direction seems a bit "off" or "unbalanced"? -- the look, the abilities (Riot stop making new champions too op... then nerf on the next patch), the voice (same as Neeko?), the "feel" of the character, the lore (baseless?) Riot recently has been producing champs a lot like Disney characters (Zoe, Neeko, Yuumi) or... fortnite-likes? I understand the corp direction now is to grab more young players' attention yet... cmon, don't lose your integrity. They leave kind of bad taste in my mouth... {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}

nvertheless, get the CONTEXT Riot, not punishing for the words jeez
: Why can't we get a bald woman in the game? Like does every woman have to have a magnificent chevelure? I'd root for a tribe full of baldies lol
Or an old lady. I’m so tired of this stereo type of female champs... especially since Fortnite gets popular all new champs seem so Disney-like or stale/Flat
: I need to concentrate really hard right now to not flame. You do realize diamond+ has MMR penalties when you enter the tiers for the first time? Even before this season it wasn't unusual to go from +20/21 LP in plat to 15/16 in diamond. Usually after a dozen games or so where you didn't lose every game your LP would normalise and get you around 18-20 while losing 15. Right now it seems that MMR is not fixing itself as it used to which is i guess due to the increased population of diamond players and it will stay like this until they drop out of diamond (which won't happen like ever i guess).
This has to be offically posted somewhere - don't you think? I'm not Diamond but I am closely watching my friend who's going through this painful process-- with a full good heart and devotion. He even emailed the riot support for a clarification so yes, it is true (getting 15/16 while losing 18/19 in diamond!!!) but on the website, in the RANKEd FAQ or anywhere this is not stated clearly. Is this nonsense "temporary" for this season/split or-- will stay this way ... OR hopefully FIXED in the very near future?? {{sticker:zombie-brand-mindblown}}
: I'm saying it's a system that can't feasibly be changed in that way, and that this subject has been brought up quite a bit and the result is always the same. Riot has mentioned in the past considering locking new or reworked champions from being used in ranked for a period after their release, although not much more has been said since so it's likely they dropped the idea (which is sad, because it's an idea I can get behind). While that solution would only apply to one or two champions at any given time, it would apply to the most frequent ones and would do so without causing an undue burden on people trying to play ranked normally.
Oh.... got it. Thanks for the information...... but still sad {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}} .. and the fact that Riot kind of disappeared on the idea does not truly making sense to me... in the same sense that League's punishment system is a bit lacking in terms of preventing real issues people face in games. On the other hand, I would like to believe that "It has not been done" or "they dropped the idea already" does not mean we can't bring up the issue again... no? Maybe they don't really care about low elos...?
: If you think that's reasonable there is no reason to start arguing... Do the math! {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}}
Explain- why requiring mastery level 4 of champions you can bring to ranked games is a bad idea?
: I wasn't agreeing with you, I was pointing out some of the less obvious consequences of such a system. Pretty much all at once Riot would lose every one-trick or people with small champion pools who play ranked (because they could no longer play under such a system due to not having 20 champions with the requisite mastery) and champion trading would become a crapshoot, because owning a champion no longer allows you to pick it to trade to your teammate, you have to actually put hours upon hours into playing them, even if you'll never play them again, just so you could trade them if the need arrises.
So what are you saying. It's fair to let anyone to bring zero mastery champions to ranked games? What would be good for a better ranked game experience?

People have been suggesting this since the Mastery system came out, its not gonna happen for obvious reasons. You are beating a dead horse at this point. The amount of games you get with people playing new champions is going to balance out with games where the enemy is picking new champions.
Thanks for the information. Good to know..... respect that but there are so many dead horses in this game it's about time to check whether we can do something about it, no? For a better game experience- that's all.... even slightly ;(
: If your skill level is the same as someone who first times champions, then that's on you.
What are you talking about? Ranked match-making is configured by MMR (although whacky) as far as I know yet you think it makes sense for the system to allow players to pick any champions even if the players have ZERO mastery with? As someone suggested here, at least mastery lvl 4-- in order for you to bring the champion to RANKED GAMES. Wouldn't it at least fair for that matter? Yes everyone gets bad games sometimes but at least it will improve the ranke game experience-- knowing at least everyone has a certain mastery of the champions s/he brings. It is better than having to deal with someone in your team who suddenly calls out in your tanked promo, saying, "this champion sucks" then goes afk... This can be prevented. **Requiring mastery lvl 4 for champions to be played in ranked - seems to be a fair + healthy boundary for ranked games -- whether you're iron, bronze.. whatever rank you are... to " reduce" the possibility to sacrifice innocent others who're trying to climb while you're experimenting, out of the blue, with the champion with no mastery in ranked.** No?

: league community: BAN EVERYONE THAT SAYS A BAD WORD also league community: WHY ARE THERE FUCKING SMURFS IN MY GAMES REEEEEEE
OMG DITTO What is in place systematically to prevent -- TROLLs, AFKers (but definitely staying in the game-- not saying anything, but around the fountain or in random bushes), ping-abusers, ping-deniers, auto-lockers... NONE
: Mastery 4 level required. Please.
That sounds about reasonable, right? I am so glad some people agree with this direction and can't belive riot has not had anything implemented for this matter. This type of meaningless loss can be prevented when it's prevented systematically -cheers
: Needing to have a certain level of mastery on a champion before you can even pick it a) massively increases the barrier to entry to ranked play in general since you'd need to have 20 champions at that mastery level (in order to avoid you getting banned and picked out) and b) seriously hampers champion trading, since if you want to pick a contested champion for someone later in the pick order you'd need to have the appropriate mastery on the champion, even if they are a champion you own but have no interest in actually playing.
: I have 90k mastery on Morgana, but I haven't played her in probably over a year and a half. Pretty sure I'd be a fresh Morg player if I played her again. Not sure how this solves the issue of people dying a lot in the game.
But at least this will prevent people from bringing a "fresh new" champion they have never played before to ranked games, no? Let's say whenever there is a rework and a new champ- this happens A LOT and innocent players with good-will get punished for their experiment. It's not bullet proof yet at least something, one at a time.....

Can we actually do a poll— for all summoners In NA & Korea? Aren’t u curious what players really feel? Wouldn’t it be the best, transparent way??? That gets my vote {{champion:432}}
Andiehh (NA)
: Honestly, I understand the benefits you supply with Position Ranks. But the truth of the matter to me seems to be that it makes us feel like we need to do 5 separate grinds to get to our desired rank. No one feels like having Plat II in Mid, Top, Bottom and Supp and then Bronze II Jungle... And we shouldn't have to grind ranked for 5 different roles. That's my opinion, at least.
Austy (NA)
: My biggest issue with positional ranks is not having time to rank up my main role. It’s extremely frustrating to get home from work, queue up for ranked, and then progress in my off-role instead of my main that I wanted. I don’t mind getting off-roles, but I would like that progress to all count towards one rank rather than individual ones. As someone who primarily plays to simply climb, this ranked system is super annoying and I hope we go back to a single rank.

: I think the dumb part is having the change so soon after season start especially when everyone drops ranks. I get why they don't want to wait for season end to hand out rewards anymore since you could potentially be waiting 10 months for rewards if you go up a new tier or two or w/e. But I am with you I think it was a dumb change. I think it would be better if they waited at least until first split was done and then gave out new borders after every split instead of having it dynamic. Now maybe... that's too much programming or too much work. In that case I still think they should have at least waited until after first split before dynamic borders came into effect. 3 months would at least be a decent amount of time to get back to your old rank or even rank up. But 3 weeks... is insane........ not to mention only a small fraction of players have even played their placements yet... I get what Riot trying to do they just always fuck up implementing changes lmao. I really don't get why they so bad at implementing new potentially great ideas. But yea... I hate silver borders so damn much I really don't even feel like playing the game right now because of it. I would really be pissed if I say got gold or plat or diamond, etc. for the first time in say last like April and then waited 8 months to get that new border only to have it ripped away 2 months later lmfao. Luckily (or unluckily) for me I have been shit at the game forever but at least manage to make gold finally in season 6 so I've had gold border for awhile so it wasn't 100% new to me. But I am still salty about it cuz.... I was stuck silver forever and hated that damn border every season and now I have one again for no apparent reason other than Riot a bunch of dumb dumbs.

: i like how the new system is but i dont like the whole individual rank per role ... but if it places you more accurately with people your elo then im still giving it a try
I'm just a bit bummed out that the new system seems rather limiting players into a certain role in a way as it will require a lot more work to climb in many roles.. I was feeling somewhat positive after watching the announcement video (about splashing LPs..etc.) but now I think I will only focus on ONE ROLE in this case...... too much work ;( On the other hand, I am very skeptical Riot will revert this change, although they promised they would if necessary.... So probably we're STUCK with this one! {{item:2424}}

: [BUG] Patch 9.1 Last season ranked borders/previous highest ranks are wrong.
Rioter Comments
Rioter Comments
: This may not be the right thread to post this... but a lot of it seems appropriate. I have been playing since Kog'maw was released, so I have seen the majority of the major changes that have come to this game, and as much as I LOVE this game I just can't find that much enjoyment in it at the moment. It's getting less & less fun to load up and play. Hell, I don't think I've played a serious game since early June or late May and I'm the type of player who used to play 6-10 Ranked games A DAY. I would go for Gold or better every season to get the exclusive skin, now I just really don't care. And yes you can dismiss me as a scrub for being happy with Gold or Plat, but the majority of the player base is Plat and lower. To be honest it all started with the Rune changes for me, the lack of anything significant as a refund and the feeling that I actually had less options than I did previously under the old Runes/Mastery system. It just didn't FEEL good to me and I know at least 3 players who stopped playing the game with the changes. On a personal note the Blue Essence was nice but it did not make up for the YEARS of grinding to get 20 full pages and didn't matter much to those of us who had all the champs at the time of the change. I also simply feel we have seen too many changes in too short a time frame, as doublelift mentioned. Many that seem to have fallen flat or simply failed, most notably for me with the champ re-works. It's okay to let a champ be niche if that champ has a dedicated group of players who really love them. One of my friends stopped playing because he loved Galio, and the new Galio simply WASN'T Galio anymore. Also, poor gbay99. On a positive note, as someone who has literally played Lux since her release day (Even getting her before the store crashed for several hours so no one else could buy her) some of the recent changes to her have been interesting and welcome. I think more of that is what most people in the community, who are upset about champion changes, are looking for. The aforementioned Gbay99 even did a pretty good video about the Aatrox changes in which he mentioned that changes to him, just prior to the re-work, made him a really fun and interesting character to play... than it was suddenly gone and replaced by a Riven clone, but from a bad metal album. I can tell you this much, and this is anecdotal, but I have at least 8 friends (including the previously mentioned 4), that have stopped playing over the past two years due to the constant changes and state of the game. That may not seem like a lot, after all so what if 8 players leave, but this pattern will continue. We've seen this with other games and I'd prefer to not see it with a game I have literally invested about 90 days of my life into (O God, that stat is so sad). Overall I have to agree with many of the high tier players, including Doublelift, about the state of the game. Moving forward, evolving & changing is all good... it really is, but sometimes it feels like you're moving forward too quickly or like you're simply throwing things at the wall too see what sticks. We don't need massive changes to jungle every season, we don't need huge system overhauls like the rune changes when the previous ones honestly SEEMED fine and really should have just been made more accessible to players, we don't need Dominion removed & we don't need beloved champions re-worked into something that COULD be them if you look at them from far away... and maybe in the dark, with that one street light shining down. I've had this frustration for a VERY VERY long time and it's starting to boil over, maybe this game just isn't really for me anymore. I don't mean to sound overly negative with any of this, I am just honestly worried about the state of the game and wanted to give my two cents. I don't want to see it go the way of a few other online games. Also I am not blaming YOU (as in ghostcrawler) for all of this or even the majority of this, just wanted to be clear on that, because I know you all work in teams and no single entity is responsible for the "mess". {{sticker:sg-soraka}}

: Can't wait for Riot reworking champions i don't Play. First Galio and now this... No Beatrice, no cane, no crow transformation, no laserbird and no dots anymore you could have named him Swoin and no one would have seen that it was based on Swain's design. I guess the champion will be strong and people who didn't like Swain before will like him more that way. The graphics are nice, but that just isn't Swain.
At least someone agrees with me.. Thank you.
: I am honestly really put off by the Lucius Malfow look
YES DITTO INDEED {{sticker:zombie-brand-mindblown}}
: Anyone else get a lucius malfoy (from harry potter) vibe from him?
YES and IT'S WRONG
: There's nothing in this that feels like swain. They completely removed the majority of his character elements; The limp, Cane, Beatrice, Morphing into a Demonbird, the hiding of the face, etc. The new kit in no way reflects Swain. There's no DoT, no zone control effects, no transformation on demand and mana management. They created an entirely new champion with the thinnest veneer of Swain and tacked on the shitty edgelord anime look. Riot used to be so good with subtle changes to a kit or design that really improves on the character while keeping identity intact; Sejuani, Ashe, or Malphite being perfect examples. But lately if you like a character and kit older than 3-4 years better kiss it the fuck goodbye. Rito doesn't like how your champ plays and is going to strip it down to a name, turn every ability into a skill shot, and tack on the edgelord...
I can't agree with you more...... SWAIN MAIN PLAYER MADDDDD {{sticker:sg-shisa}}
: The appeal of Swain (to me) was the fact that he was visually off-putting but still rose above thanks to his mind. Darius got him to the top because he knew a guy like Swain would never make it to the top due to being a crippled, veiny, elder guy. The new look is just another handsome aristocrat like Vlad. We already have Vlad for that.
CAN'T AGREE W YOU MORE. I am not so sure if the design decision was made by someone who understood the essence of Swain, why Swain main players fell in love with the champ to begin with.....Hard to explain.... ARggggggg but just so desperately disappointed..... in so many angles
: He definitively needs shorter and darker hairs.
YES NO WHITE, NO Lucious Malfoy! KEEP THE ESSENCE!!!!!!!!!!! SWAIN MAIN PLAYER MAD!!!!!!! {{sticker:sg-shisa}}
: Absolutely agreed. I don't like his Lucious Malfoy look at all, and I really don't know why this design was chosen. I also loved his green color scheme and the fog/mist-like aesthetics of his abilities. They have thrown this out of the window too, for red lightning. He looks like a totally different champion.

Swain is the very first champion I mained... and I have to admit I really do not like this updated look..... I was hoping that they would update "slightly" or just update the abilities.

The art, the ability, the skinny crippled guy with a bird on his shoulder, hiding behind the mask mysteriously, saying "my bird is hungry"... The guy who's limping with no way to dash out yet exploding rage on R when the time comes.

Well.. ok, call me crazy but I bought the Braum emote too today. (I don't know why but emotes are important for me!! It *could* change the mood of the game..etc.) That Braum emote that I had a high hope for also seems very small; considering there are two faces, they are basically squeezed into the size that's for one figure. Why-- The icons shown in STORES are definiately misleading!!! In addition, it also has the watered-down chime, like the D-Pengu, ;( + not even enough glow ;( ;( ;( I wish Riot evaluate them all equally and deploy the ones that will guarantee the similar value/effects; ******especially they can only be purchased by RP!!!!!!!!! Is there anyone who feels the same at all?? {{sticker:zombie-brand-mindblown}}
: D’Pengu on ‘em
Dear Riot, I have purchased the adorable D'Pengu but unfortunately, and very disappointingly, it's literally a bit smaller AND does not create a sound when the emote pops! Is that a bug? So when I "T", to show off my adorable emote I spent RP on, it just.. "appears" without the usual emote tune, looking obviously smaller than other emotes (don't know why....) then disappears... ;( So unsatisfying and disappointing.. I would like a refund but then I used up my three chances already so I can't. Could you please at least look into this? If this can be fixed,so at least it creates "zing!" sound like other emotes, it would make me sooo happy. Cheers and thank for looking into this in advance. {{sticker:galio-happy}}
