: WE HAVE BEEN SAYING IT EVER SINCE THE COMPENSATION BUFFS FOR YASUO WERE FIRST RELEASED
"Why, why is a highly skillful champion like Yasuo at a F I F T Y - T H R E E percent winrate?" Because this isn't a game like Smash bros It takes like 1-2 weeks max to learn how to play a champion if you actually put effort into it. Meanwhile the pros in other games who play non stop to learn combos might not figure out something until 7 months in. League isn't that skillful of a game when it comes to individual champions lol. Riven/Yasuo/Akali aren't that hard to learn. Wave management, ward placement, map awareness, decision making. That's where the skill part of League is. Don't get it mixed. And think if you main Yasuo long enough that'll carry you to challenger lmao.
: Matchmaking is Horrible
I mean I'd rather have an afk teammate than get t bagged in smash ultimate u.u
Akrid415 (NA)
: I went against Lucian top
J4 top vs Lucian is rough because you picked a champion that's supposed to get ahead early and carry that momentum to mid game. Lucian is the same, but ranged, so he's going to beat you in lane. J4 top just isn't a good idea imo. The only advantage you have in that match up is you're offering a better comp for your team, meanwhile the Lucian can only really win through getting super far ahead or tilting you off the face of earth.
GreyfellD (EUW)
: This game is neither rewarding nor fun in its current incarnation
Just saying but Taric's top lane potential is way better than what it used to be. His 1v1s are insane and all you have to do is play safe-ish, you could probably still win most trades, until your first mana item. Bad example imo. You could've used Morde, someone no one wanted to play in a duo lane, but buffed in duo lanes and nerfed in solo lanes.
: PSA: SOME JUNGLERS CANT GANK AS WELL AT LEVEL 2.
Eve and Zac have good level 2 ganks and if anything I suggest going for an early gank because one kill is all you need to tilt someone off the face of earth. Bad examples lol. Lee/j4 might have higher base dmg but eve/ zac have way more cc potential. Also just saying but this current jungle meta is all about early game ganks and controlling the game, if you're not playing a champ who can do that, you're either planning to 1v9 or you're planning to get out jungled and hope for a carry.

: Riot, I don't like where you're going with all these passes and exclusive skins.
Passes also feel EXTREMELY GRINDY and very UNDER REWARDING. Just highlighting those two things, because if riot actually wants to keep passes, they should work on those. You essentially grind non stop to either get a prestiege skin or like maybe 5-10 hextech boxes with keys.

: Oh boy, time to open a Hextech chest
While I think it's okay to complain about how if you own every champion in the game, you should still be grateful considering that for years us people who played since the game came out had no way of obtaining free skins like this. I average around 20-30 free skins every year now because I reroll every time instead of disenchanting. Considering that the quality of skins are only going up and they keep mass producing 1350 skins, I always get a super cool skin I'm happy with too. Like you should at least be a little greatful and understand bad luck is bad luck. I seriously think that if you own every champion you should get the champion and maybe at the least an icon to go with it. Champion shards aren't that bad if you're someone who likes to unlock mastery 7 for everyone like me (although I have a ton of BE and could get everyone to 7 without champion shards).

To be fair, Sion would've been at the top of your list for like 3 roles 2 months ago because low play % but high main % = high win % He was at the top of support, top and mid for a while idk what changed. Most of the champions you've listen are champions that have low play % but high main %. A lot of the champions I'm seeing on your list I destroy on the daily if the person isn't a 1 trick that really knows their stuff. Ziggs/Donger bot isn't easy to pull off. Lucian is pretty good right now, we can all agree about that, but because of everyone going to him he has a lower win %. Meanwhile if we look at his data across Lucian mains, he spikes at a 53% winrate. Not only does the main catagory of Lucian go higher than Ziggs play rate, it has a higher winrate. That means the "0.18%" playrate comes out with a "53.02%" winrate on ziggs, but the "0.18%" on lucian is at 53.28% Interestingly enough tho the 0.01% of ziggs winrate is 54% while the 0.01% of Lucians are at 52%. Just some advance stats facts because you kinda manipulated your stats to look like something they're not.
: silver bolts should work like wuju style
Am I missing something? Vayne has never been closed to op. Annoying, sure... but she has so many weaknesses you'd have to give her a ton of base stats to ever be good. Like she's good at abusing tilt in solo que... but as an actual champion... not so much. It's like complaining about one of your examples, Master Yi, despite him being a terrible champ against everyone who takes the time to actual learn how to play vs them. Like just learn how to play vs Vayne. Burst damage and cc, which is very abundant in this meta. I would much rather have a good Ez/ Kai'sa on my team any day over a good Vayne. A ton of challenger tier Vayne mains complain about how overall bad she is in exchange for tilt factors. She's just the Garen/Darius of bot with more out play potential that allows her to climb to higher tiers easier than them. As a support main who often picks Lulu, Vayne has never been and will probably never be a problem for me. A good adc who can poke already destroys Vayne, if your support counter picks her with a point click cc champ (Ali, Lulu), there's literally nothing to complain about in the match up. Unless you're a 1 trick in low elo... which honestly you shouldn't be one tricking in low elo, it's a bad way to learn the game, you should be trying every champ to better learn their weaknesses and strengths... You should be able to just counter pick her with her various pretty hard match ups. Vayne is a champion who has the capability to abuse skill gap differences, so chances are you actually deserve to lose to most of the Vaynes you're playing against. She's like the #1 smurf adc because there's a different way to play her in every elo that abuses that elo's skill level. I even destroy Vaynes that are objectivley and just from observation, better than my adc because again, she can get counter picked really hard and has a ton of counter picks. It's not even like Vayne really counters anyone herself either. She literally gets counter picked or it's a skill match up. Like theres not much to actually complain about when it comes to Vayne. I understand this is a hate thread tho and logic doesn't belong here. I'm probably just gonna get downvoted for trying to spread a different view. Also her w is a fine ability and it's the only real thing she has going for her. I don't think they should mess with it. The only reason playing Vayne is even satisfying is because of her W. It'd be like taking away Braum's stun and making it only available while his shield is up. I don't agree with your change idea at all.

: What? Chinese New Year, April Fools, Harrowing, Snowdown and Star Guardian are all cuter, light-hearted events - even K/DA and Odyssey are very much on the upbeat side of things. The "serious" events we usually get are PROJECT:, Dark Star, Blood Moon and, you guessed it, Vs. There's no shortage of "happier" skin lines. Besides, what leaves a bad taste isn't making a funnier event as taking Vs. away for that. If Riot wanted to do a Dogs and Cats skin line, that's okay. I still think it's a shitty idea, but just use April Fools or some other time for it and it's all fine. The Vs. event already had a theme and a visual identity established, and taking that away for something completely unrelated is just shitting on the entire concept.

I can agree with the Snowdown being light hearted. I think you're trying to imply everything that isn't edgey is light hearted... which isn't correct in my opinion. Also I'm talking specifically about VS events here. I don't know why you're talking about all skin lines in general. All of the VS events have been edge lord stuff. So like weird flex but ok go off.

It's not THRESH that's op right now. It's aftershock. Allows him to pretty much walk up to you and do anything he wants. Works extremely well on Thresh because he already has so much base stats. Adding even more makes him an early game trade monster.

And here you see a demographic that doesn't understand there are other, just as big, demographics. The last few VS events have been edgelordy. Give us a single cute vs event like damn. Did you even watch the skins video where they explain exactly why they're doing a cuter one? Or did you hear something you disaproved of and instantly went to the boards to complain without doing research? All of the VS events have been focused on top lane too which is a snore. The only VS event that didn't include 2 top laners is the one with Diana that you probably weren't here for. Too bad it still had Riven in it. Besides, you guys always pick the dark side in VS events so it's barely even a VS.

: I just don't get why RIOT has never decided to simply REMOVE a mechanic from Yasuo
How are you still complaining about Yasuo? You're at a high enough skill level to know how to easily abuse his character. Maybe it's because you have a long term war with the Yasuo mains who flash mastery 7 every time they kill you, but Yasuo isn't that annoying of a champion. He's so easily abusable that I easily win long term trades with him as a support as long as I position properly. It sounds to me like you want the playerbase to suffer, not that you actually think he deserves nerfs. You should be able to play vs him by now. He isn't a good champion lmao. Like he is one of the champions I see get picked, and then I'm relieved because it's going to be easy to counterplay him. Take exhaust and some cc. Like it's really that easy. btw, this is from someone who hasn't played Yasuo since like... his release and is a support/mid main. I think I have enough expierence to point our your hate on the Yasuo fanbase bs disguised as, "he needs nerfs!"
: Why do we not talk about how ridiculous Rengar is?
People do talk about it. Non-stop. Why are you acting like you're the first person to talk about a champion that is widely disliked? Might as well make the same title with Akali in it lmaooo.
: I killed a player who was behind due to being AFK in the start of a game. Was i in the wrong?
It honestly depends on your morals and what kind of person you are. I feel guilty when I do it because it goes against what I'm all about. I don't want to win because I took advanatage of something like that. Feels cheap. Treat people how you'd want to be treated tbh. If you'd be okay with someone doing that to you, go for it. If you'd like someone to allow you to catch up a little, treat people like that instead. I want to be proud of my rank. I can't be proud of it if I beat someone while they're down like that.
: Why do new supports feel like junglers? Can we have a new DECENT Healer / Shielder support?
Supports at high tier should feel like junglers in the sense that they have to roam, heals/ shields or not. If you're not roaming and the enemy support is, regardless of champ, you're playing at a huge skill gap disadvantage. If you don't like that aspect of support, and how they're making supports that are really good at it, you might want to find a different role to play. It's been like this forever. You obviously weren't here during the supports being nothing but ward hogs meta. You would've really hated how much you had to roam, and there weren't really any good Rakan type supports back then, so you'd just be roaming as like nami, extremely under leveled, 24/7. Supports has always been like this on every champ idk where you've been. The new support looks like a healer based on the colors used in the splash. You should still roam with it regardless. I don't know why you find shield botting fun. Super glad this isn't a kog meta where I have to baby sit 24/7 or I'm flamed because he can't be left alone for 0.5 seconds without dying. You don't like that some supports have heals/ shields for peel, that's fine, but you need to be roaming. You have plenty of options: Janna, Nami, Soraka, Lulu, Taric, etc. The only difference is one peels in cc time so adcs can kill faster and one peels in heals/ shields so adcs can live longer. cc can also save ur adc sometimes so there's that too.
: Toxicity and why I will look for fun elsewhere

SW1977 (NA)
: Top 5 Longest Waiting Champions That Need Skins.
to be fair... 6/7 of those champs are huge VU candidates, so giving them skins now would just add extra work later. Not to mention almost all of them are unpopular and expecting small game updates too. They should all be getting Ezreal tier updates except Reksai, but Ezreal was really popular and likeable, so making skins for him made sense at the least marketing wise. Not so much for any of the champs you suggested. My theory on Rek'sai is that he's just in such a bad state rn that they don't wanna make anything for him rn. I'm not the type of person to hate on a company for trying to make money. It's not like they're doing it in a super greedy way (Activision), and you can see most of the money coming right back at us in super cool cinimatics, songs and the money they spend to make E-Sports cool.
: None of what Jhin makes is real. Its just what _he_ sees. This is why he's the only one that appreciates it, because he's the only one that can see it for what it truly is.

Pretty sure the only Hextech he has is the thing on his shoulder, because he finds Hextech to be a crude imitation of magic. I mean it's a possibility, but are there literal quotes for these delusions? Obviously there are quotes for him finding beauty in death, but I feel like if he saw things others didn't, there would be more evidence by now. Personally, I find an assassin that sets up traps that explode in colorful smoke in a perfectly planned way to be more thematically attractive than someone who is just scizophrenic. Jhin has been confirmed to use magic in his gun/ bullets. Magic pulsates from the gun's core and he infuses magic into every bullet. These are literal facts you could look up in his lore. He also uses the sort of spirit connected magic with his fists. He used to kill people with blades, but then he would use "chi" to make it beautiful. This is 80% fact and then he includes 20% theory at the bottom but you should look at this for a better understanding: https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/EskMrPX2-a-look-at-how-jhins-gun-whisper-might-work-and-how-he-creates-his-art Also you should look at this convo: "It's a nice thread, but sadly, I'm fairly certain it doesn't apply. Jhin seeing flowers/trees/beautiful art is only something he sees. It's his delusion of sorts. Everyone else still sees the horribly mangled bodies." "A rioter, during his Q and A confirmed that the bullets transform the victims flesh. It is not delusion at all." Here's the Q&A: http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/zZEsex0P-jhins-color-text-qa-thread I couldn't find the exact comment because all the links were broken but this was the question asked: "So Jhin's bullets literally shape his victims' flesh into artwork of his choosing, the trees and such?" This was the rioters response: "yep. Or turn the parts of flesh to gold, or make it move, and other things. It is macabre.." So I think I just debunked the delusion theory, yay me.
: Seriously though, Where is Pykes punish window?
If pyke misses q and his stun, that's when you punish his adc, not him. He's hard to catch because he has two escapes, but his adc sure isn't lmao. If you really can't catch him for some reason (literally haven't had that much trouble with catching pykes so I can't relate. There are plenty of cc openings to punish him and if you don't have cc you could just group with someone that does.), and he's missing q and stun not like he's doing much alive anyways. He's usually dead after I land 1 cc unless he's an after shock pyke, but honestly if he's missing q and stun, that aftershock won't proc to save him. This is literally one of the most damage intensive metas ever. People die in like 2 seconds after they've been cced and there are so many supports with cc that's easy to land on pyke. He literally has a straight line dash and an ability that let's him move faster, nothing Kassadin level 16 tier. I think this is just a hate thread of Pyke, so using actual logic and expierence to explain how to catch him out is just going to be ignored. You should try Yasuo next, he'll give you even more upvotes when you complain about him. Oh, wait no, go for Akali. No one wants to learn how to play against her, honestly they don't have to because Akali will just out play herself with horrible stats, but they love to hate on her.
: That wasn't purple smoke
I'm pretty sure Jhin likes to make killing beautiful by adding things like colorful smoke. He sees killing as a thing that can be beautiful, that doesn't mean that there aren't deaths that are ugly to him. Otherwise, I'm sure he'd be more of a go to war and murder everyone type, not a perfectly planned kill assassin type. Also, a lot of weapons and traps from zaun/ piltover are fueled by magical hextech crystals. That was shown in the scene where Camille breaks in (this was my favorite scene in the entire cinimatic, it was so cool), those weapons were obviously hextech fueled. I wouldn't doubt that when these crystals explode they create smoke like most things do. Painting is a form of art, but some painters hate certain painting styles. I know a few artists that think that abstract isn't a real form of painting. Same thing probably applies to Jhin. He wants death to be perfect and honestly I think he accomplished that because the scene looked beautiful to me and most viewers. He wants his work to be seen by everyone (literal quote from him), so if his work was just a bunch of blood flying everywhere that obviously wouldn't be much of a show. He's insane but I'm pretty sure he doesn't have scizophrenia.
: New to League, but not MOBAs.
I just applied my roaming knowledge from league to HoTS and I got extremely fed every single game I played despite being new when I played that game. I would think you could do the same in reverse.
: I really don't like Karma's look in the "Season 2019 Login" Screen
I think her face was taken from the middle of a huge battle (since the login is based off the cinimatic we just got), so that's a face of focus and yeah probably a little bit of anger. That's my take on it. Karma is still a human, those are emotions you might show in the middle of a battle. Also kinda fits her after the lore changes. She doesn't look like a demon at all to me and her eyes probably only glow when she's casting abilities and the scene this is taken from she was standing still so yeah. I'm not a fan of lots of eye shadow either but calling someone a demon is a little MEAN.
: I still really miss old Aatrox man.
Old aatrox was just a cheese strat champ tho. Your entire game relied on people not realizing his early game power with w and not realizing when they can't duel you because of your passive and yet again, w. He was only ever good because people never played him which allowed his cheese strats to become viable. Kinda toxic for the game tbh.
: Why is camille allowed to be the jg she is?
Camilles clear is actually horrible compared to most junglers. It's the fact that she can get early kills so easily that leads to early items like tiamat that give her a fast clear. Otherwise Kayn clears 100000x faster for example.
: Please please PLEASE don't let the Vayne buff get onto live servers...
If she spams q she actually loses damage because the q bonus damage isn't enough to make up for the amount of autos you could've gotten in during the role animation. But fo sho, spread your fake news.

: With 2018 gone, I'd figure we do a checkup on how many champs we have left to get a lore update
Frejlord's lore update has been done for 2 years now I believe. It's starting to be shown in the new Ashe comic. The person who made all the Frejlord lore tweeted (or maybe it was a boards post??? I honestly don't remember where he said it) that he finished it a super long time ago but he couldn't release it till now or something. There's a lot of that at riot. I remember a youtuber that got to visit the riot hq said they had pictures of Illoai's god and a ton of lore stuff they have but never show. There's like a whole world they wait super long to release.
: All I have to say is, join the club. I've already lost all of my mains {{champion:14}} {{champion:78}} {{champion:39}} {{champion:31}} I can explain Cho if you like, but in a short summary, they ruined him with his W changes and ult rework. When they do a full rework, they don't revert it. Ever. Sorry man, but old Akali is dead. They also don't revert things that people widely like without understanding (like Cho's ult) even if it makes the character worse off for it. Mind you, the only character I ever played "how you're supposed to" was Irelia, and even that I'd changed up near the end of her life cycle.

Bruv if u liked old poppy ur a masochist, you just ult the support and kill everyone else. Old Sion was literally just a stun bot or a weird take on Mundo. Irelia was just a free win top lane and then horrible out of lane unless you're 20/0. All your mains were made into real champions imo.
: So, you, the guy making even more errors than me, criticise my research skills and you also say that I'm spreading fake news? 1- You limited the search to "United states", which only represent a division of one of the servers. Funnily enough, when you don't limit it and consider "Worldwide" searches, the search term "LoL" that you were oh-so proud of pointing out to be at its peak, isnt even at 60% when compaired to its actual peak (oopsie?), which was 3 years ago in october 2015 https://i.imgur.com/mxLqfXG.png[/img] 2- The term "League" isn't universal to the game, far from it; it includes every search terms tied to any video game with the word "league", any sports league and oh well pretty much any leagues that exist (spoiler alert: League of Legends only represent a small portion of all that mess) 3- Similar enough, the researches concerning "LoL" isn't tied solely to the game either. Google trends only shows the data tied to the "term" in that case, and not the "topic". This means this includes all searches like "lol wiki", "what am I doing with my life lol" or your common elderly person who directly googles "What does lol mean?". 4- On the opposite, "League of Legends" in google trend's view is a "topic", which means it includes anything related to it so, sadly, your argument of "Haha no one googles League of Legends its so lame and long to write" isn't relevant at all. All searches who are tied to the game who also contains "Lol" and "League" are actually included in this, unlike you who used only the terms in Trends' engine. You should work on your research skills dude... They'll help you criticise actual fake news, instead of just trying to spread actual ones. Your argument about other research engines is decent though.

: I didn't say she was strong right now at all; I said she's bullshit _when_ she is strong. Without point and click CC, she'll likely be that much more of a balance issue. Note that two of the four supports you listed HAVE that point and click CC, and Thresh's flay has a pretty decent AoE (which also counters her). Pyke is the only one there that doesn't fit one of those two qualifications, but if you're going by champion.gg metrics, one of the best matchups for her is Pyke with a 49.08% WR (bearing in mind that she has a 46.31% WR by those same metrics). She is certainly in an okayish state balance-wise right now, but she was a nightmare in the past for a reason. If you get rid of one of her hardest counters, you in turn make her strong—how strong I don't know, but you risk making her FotM once again. I didn't know that her linear jumping makes her worthless. Guess those dumb guys in Worlds 2017 could've made use of that information during the Ardent meta. Also, I wouldn't consider her Rend "cheese" damage. It's an ability and it does what it is intended to do, so she is a lane bully, nothing special about that. Her mid-game isn't fantastic, but she's also had a particularly strong late-game because it's difficult to touch her then.

You're literally just talking about things you know nothing about and it's coming off as super cringeyyy.

Am I missing something or are you just asking for champions that would only be useful in low elo? They&#x27;re not going to make a point and click root as strong as a skill shot root, so these point and clickers will just get passed by higher skill cap champs. Like I haven&#x27;t missed a root on camille mid dash in ages. she literally just goes in two straight lines and flys towards a wall where you can aim your root. The only reason Ryze is even good is because they thought that making a champion &quot;take skill&quot; by having to do multiple rotations extremely fast over and over again was a good idea. In reality he&#x27;s just a weird burst tank mage that no one likes to play against and everyone has a headache playing. Malz just has wayyy too much counterplay and he gets outvalued by everyone. Not a good idea to add more point and click stuff into the game imo. Doesn&#x27;t feel that great to play against either. I&#x27;d be okay with a semi skill shot point and click root like they have in smite. You just have to hover your mouse under someone, but if they dash last second and you click the ground and miss them, you miss the root. That&#x27;s okay in my book. More stuff like ryze? No thanks. it's not hard to hit a root, but usually by the time you land it the dmg is done. Also whatever happened to this game catering to all elos?

Also whatever happened to this game catering to all elos? Why exactly would you want to cater to all elos? Literally you don't nerf a math problem when you can't solve, you learn from your teacher until you can solve it. You don't add in more point and click cc which riot has removed a lot of because you're having a hard time hitting skill shots, you learn how to land skill shots. If the damage by the enemy is already done by the time you've landed you're root, you probably are just a really slow player and wait for them to make the play before you do. This is an aggressive meta, if you're going to wait for other people to make plays before you do, you deserve to die in that situation. This isn't a defencive game atm and most passive strategies are extremely horrible. I guess you were on board with those Darius and Garen nerfs lmao. I hate Garen and Darius on every level except their looks, but those nerfs were dumb as hell considering it feels like a 4v5 as long as you don't feed them. What every happened to people trying to become BETTER at video games? Now they just cry when they have a hard time playing against something until it's nerfed. This game has never catered to all elos except for a few instances to nerfs to already horrible champions because they were lane bullies. This game should never cater to low elos. QoL buffs for low elo players is whatever. Them adding buff, drag and baron timers was whatever. You asking them to make garbage mechanics for garbage tier players, not whatever. Just improve lmao, not that hard. I've seen people out her get to plat their first season playing because instead of going to the boards to complain about not enough click cc, which riot has been removing slowly over the years from just about everyone, they look up guides, stratagies and tips to help them improve. Everyone can state their opinion but when your opinion is a pretty bad one and people literally explain to you why, and you still stand by that opinion, that's called ignorance.
: It's next to impossible to deal with Kalista when there isn't point and click or very fast-moving CC available. I don't want to have her strong again; she's easily my least favorite champion to play against when in an overpowered state.

I don&#x27;t want to have her strong again; she&#x27;s easily my least favorite champion to play against when in an overpowered state. is this a joke? Not only is Kalista in a horrible position right now, She's one of the easiest adcs to cc. First of all, her dashes move in one direction leaving her easier to hit with a skill shot if you just aim in that direction. Meanwhile in high elo an adc could dash a different way to dodge something or just simply click to walk the other way. Not to mention she can't cancle her auto attacks. Kalista's passive is literally only good for chasing people and running away from people with no cc like Shyvana, Trynd, etc. Can't believe you just tried to make her sound op lmaooo. Deadass she's so easy to cc too so I don't understand. Bot lane is filled with champions that counter her cc wise. Lulu, Thresh, Pyke, Alistar, etc all destroy her. She relies super hard on her early game cheese damage with rend to bully her opponent before she just falls off the face of the game.

: Point and click rooting.
It really ain't that hard to hit a root while someone is dashing though. Am I missing something or are you just asking for champions that would only be useful in low elo?

Like I haven't missed a root on camille mid dash in ages. she literally just goes in two straight lines and flys towards a wall where you can aim your root.

It's honestly really easy to avoid as long as you didn't get hit by her root. Not to mention you can just kill her in the middle of it and It's super easy to dodge with Zhoynas. It should be doing that much damage imo, extremely easy to counterplay. If Neeko hits her empowered root, I personally think she deserves a kill. Otherwise you can dash, flash, walk out of, blink, push her away, kill her, zhoynas, etc to just avoid that damage. Like Annie's ult isn't interuptable and you can't even dodge it, you have to hope the Annie misplays. You gotta problem with Annie too even though she has 200000 different ways to counter her?

Africa isn&#x27;t as big on games as a lot of other places, and the African servers probably wouldn&#x27;t be that populated resulting in really long que times. You wouldn&#x27;t want to be above plat beacuse then your ranked que time would prob be 2 hours long. If you really enjoy gaming and you&#x27;re passoniate about it, I would just move from Africa. Otherwise you&#x27;re going to have to wait for Africa to catch up on this kinda thing. You're seriously telling someone to move from their entire CONTINENT to get better ping for league. Do you understand how ridiculous that is haha
