We do our best to create accurate models and detection methods, but it sure makes our job a lot harder when the signals are dirty. This is why intentional feeding is such a hard problem to solve. I feel like a lot of this behaviour stems from the terrible place that champ select is in at the moment, player on the same team often ban champs that allies show intent to pick, to the point that players rarely show their intent to pick for fear of allies intentionally banning their champ. This isn't even taking into account the number of people who will throw a game before it starts due to being auto filled into a roll. there really needs to be a system in place that allows players to leave before a game starts without such harsh reprimands. there is nothing worse then being stuck in a game with a teammate that has either been forced out of the game by their allies or allies that act more ant-agonizingly then enemies.

: I Dont Think This Is Fair
yeah tbh riot is not great at the whole reasonable thing. Its 100% fine for people to troll as much as they like so long as they write next to nothing and don't run into towers. So keep that in mind when others are being toxic. Remember so long as you play the game your fine, even if you play as your own separate team
: Can you make Champ select less toxic?
This is one of the most irritating things at the moment. I play a lot of odd champs, {{champion:136}} {{champion:163}} {{champion:421}} , generally things that don't see a lot of play. Its more then likely that unless I'm playing with a premade group that the champ I intend to play gets banned out by my own team because 'its not viable' or 'its useless in the meta.' Which wouldn't be a big issue but it happens so often that I can't dodge the games cause the penalties stack up. At this point I just with that Riot would get ride of the dodge penalties in champ select.
: I'm just sitting here watching people cry about aatrox laughing. I think Riot did great with this and that it is an incredible buff. If you pay attention to the bloodwell it says that the 4 second drain resets when you damage or take damage from an enemy champ. and if you build attack speed filling it is no problem. the champ is inherently tanky enough that you don't need to build him tank and with his ult the bloodwell fills by 20% every attack. so I feel like the changes strongly buffed him and have given him the capability to rise to a top teir as opposed to the bottom teirs he has been held at for a while. (also if you pay attention they lowered the cooldown on the revive from bloodwell, sooooooooo..... happy)
I feel the need to point out that he has the lowest Hp and MR of all melee champs. In fact there are a few adc with more then him.
: Not sure if anybody noticed this, but I think it's worth mentioning: According to what I read about the Blood Well, it does NOT empty until it has been completely filled. All you have to do is stack it up to 80%, then when you're ready to fight the other top laner you pop the blood well with one more spell and get a much higher damage output for THE ENTIRE DURATION OF THE FIGHT. And this can happen as early as level 1, so it will be easier to bully other top laners.
it empties after 4 secs if not effected regardless of if it has been filled.
: Patch 7.5 - Revisiting Aatrox
Could we maybe give him more health and resistances if if his sustain is down so much. With his new kit he is even higher risk and lower reward. The %Hp-missing scaling is a great idea but the amount of health that has to be purchased makes it kind lackluster. As it stands Aatrox has some of the lowest stats for a top lane champion (and a few none-toplaners). If your looking to reduce the 'Feast and Famine' idea he needs to be able to survive and with the reduction to his attack-speed from his passive coupled with the reliance of his W-blood price to start it he is less healthy then before. His original defining feature was his ability to heal in combat really well, however this is a much more common characteristic now. When he came out the only top laners that could heal in fights were Trundle, Maokia, Warwick, Nasus and Reneketon, none of which did so at the same rate as Aatrox. Now its more common then not to have a heal or shield up on top, and those that don't have large health pools. Champions like Darius, Illaoi, Fiora and even Camille to an extent not only vastly out tank Aatrox but out heal and out damage him. What had been his saving grace was that despite his tiny health bar he could heal and do so quickly thanks to his passive attack speed, along with the extra safety of the revival. Now the revival is often to tasking to activate to make a difference. Often times coming up at the last second leaving you vulnerable while your lane opponent re-positions. All-in-All Aatrox lost his niche stop as an in-fight healer. While he can still pose a threat to the less damaging tanks and an out of position mage/ADC he is no longer the disruptive threat he was on release.
: Rotating game mode queue now live!
Are there any plans to add Black Market Brawlers as a rotating game mode? The array of strategies that emerged form the minion customization was really fun and added a lot to each match.
: GA, BT, Sterak's, or team peel should all be somewhat effective against these.
> [{quoted}](name=RiotRepertoir,realm=NA,application-id=A7LBtoKc,discussion-id=R8IzYt9i,comment-id=00190000,timestamp=2016-04-20T03:14:06.810+0000) > > GA, BT, Sterak's, or team peel should all be somewhat effective against these. Rioters have stated before that the entire point of assassins is the kill squishy targets through the entire team so the statement that 'team peel should be effective' is contrary to other reads explicit statements. As for BT and Steraks with the addition of duskblade these are almost worthless as the sheer dmg that zed can out put in such short periods of time vastly out weighs the shields that these grant. Lastly while GA is a late game option rushing it sacrifices a huge amount of gold and damage, and once you have it, the problem is that once bursted by the zed/fizz/assassin, (as GA does not prevent that at all), the time it takes to renter the fight means that your team has to either hold that position while a man down, or fall back, in which case you are likely to fall a second time without GA to protect you.
: Good question. For one, Zed has a nerf already going into 6.8 I believe. We'll want to see how that shakes out. I wasn't involved in the creation of Duskblade, but when discussing our plan for this change, we didn't want to knee jerk change a bunch of stuff right away, and we also don't know exactly where the line of who to nerf and who to leave alone should rest.

This would be great but it was just a bug-fix, there was nothing there that rebalanced him for this upcoming change. All that happened is that a massive AD boost 'that shouldn't have been occurring in the first place' was removed.
: Retiring Dominion
one of the major reasons i stopped playing dominion was the fact that i got 1/8 the ip/exp that i got from the rift. pre-30 it wasn't viable, and post 30 i was out of the habit.
: Champion Update: Shen
Not that i don't appreciate the champ update, but {{champion:98}} was in a rather ok ({{champion:33}} ) spot. While we still have relatively little news on Leagues unanimous black sheep {{champion:83}}.
: i like her!! she is the first strong and confident type of woman in league...
Are there any non-confident LOL women?
: Champion Reveal: Kindred, the Eternal Hunters
Assuming that they come out in patch 5.19 which will probably be sometime in October I am going to assume it is intentional that the "death" champion is being released close to halloween.
: Chicago Connection Clinic Megathread [Closed]
Hi just thought i'd leave my piece here to. ISP: shaw Old ping:20-60 New ping: 80- 700 It's kinda rough i don't mind the additional 4ish ping but when I am unable to connect to games entirely it's kinda a drag.
Rioter Comments
: Patch 5.16 notes
I know I'm the only one but with the major damage increases going to tanks here I fear for the top laners who are more focused on damage then on tanks. {{champion:266}} and {{champion:114}} already have a hard time against some of the more damaging tanks and this update gives them nothing to work with.

: Just played a round, it was fun, actually talking to your teamates ermuhged!! Communicating to the other team in a friendly way too! It was fun.
God I wish this would happen. Every game so far has been me trying to get people to communicate. "what should we give them?", "who can play this champ", "what lane are we all going to." but all i get is silence and people ON THE SAME TEAM yelling at each other.

So with these new mage buffs being largely scaling focused does that mean we can expect buffs to other mages that don't/can't carry? Especially in some of the older mages that have fallen into disuse.

: Azir Q&A: Creative - COMPLETED
Bit of topic and not totally about Azir. I was wondering, I Xerath full evil now. It's just that, as some one who plays and loved Xerath's lore he never struck me as evil. All he wanted was to learn the truth of magic. I would love to see more of Xerath reasons behind why he took the ascension ritual from Azir and the subsequent fallout.
: Dev Blog: Exploring Runeterra
I hope this gets through to you guys at riot. Please don't be put off by all these nay-sayers, this is what a lot of the community has been waiting for. It my come as a bit of a shock to the system but after a while it will be as love if not more loved then the current lore. All of you at right are doing a great job. Thank you for all of your hard work and time that has made this game as great as it is now. Thank you for taking the lore to the next level and thank you for making LoL such an awesome game.

Why is this being featured? Not impressive in the slightest.
: Azir, the Emperor of the Sands, Revealed
I have questions that will not be answered. Can you still attack turrets that are passed the enemies sun disk? i.e. can you dmg the inner turret if there is a hostile sun disk on the outer turret? Do items that give attack speed just not work on him? Does ravenous hydra proc on the sand warriors attacks? Can you use shifting sands to dash to his phalanx or his sun disks? Are sun disks effected by ohm wrecker? can kat shunpo to his sand warriors? do sand warriors grant vision?
: Look on Azir's works, ye Mighty, and despair!
I was about to post the same. There are scholars among the rioters, this is great.

I say this as "rip yy wallet" and was confused for like 3min
: It confirmed that Anivia trapped Gnar in true ice,to preserve him,so he can fight the Watcher oneday. I dont really remember Xerath turning Shurima into a desert.... Also you can add that the Shadow Isles were once a beautiful place and filled with life.
It's hinted at in Xerath judgement, at the very least his ascension cause massive damage resulting in fear and panic. Also where is it mentioned that the shadow isles where lush? I am trying to compile as much info and history as i can and would like to add that from it's source.

: Gnar Q&A - Creative [COMPLETED]
So in relation to chronology where does Gnar fit? Is he the oldest champion now? If so how long is it before the explosion caused by Xerath or the disappearance of the darken? If he as old as lissandra and she is the one who froze him?
: Team Builder- Summoner Icon
I have the same problem but with the assassin icon if anyone knows something it would be really appreciated.

i can't get the assassin icon :(
: Sona Update
Dear Fearless I regret to inform you, on behalf of the community, that you will be unable to see what we, the players will do with this new update. With this nerf The Maven of the Strings shall join the ranks of forgotten champions. While many people will play Sona at the start those among us who loved her since the get go will sorely miss the Maven of Attrition.
: Sona Update
Dear Fearless I regret to inform you that you will be unable to see what players are going to do with her new update due to the massive nerf it carries. Much like Kha'zix she will disappear almost entirely from play and become another forgotten champion. This is quite unfortunate as she was a brilliant and unique champion already but as of this update the aspects of her kit that gave her a unique play style.
