: Why do people want to 'discuss' Neekos Sexuality?
I really don't get the obsession with this tbh. Normally I dislike when an agenda is forced into a character, making them a social politics 1 dimensional robot, but that's not even what's going on here. It's just some flirty lines with someone who is female, to females. It's no different than the stuff like Ahri or Illaoi say (although it IS more innocent.) The only thing that felt unnecessary was the jab at males, but otherwise this really isn't a big deal. I also find it funny that riot didn't reduce her to her sexuality, which is what the problem tends to be in other games. It's the community that did it. The irony here is strong.
: I can say tonight is better than usual, only partly because chunkb*h has finally been dealt with appropriately. And I'm not gloating, just tired of the whining and the crying about her being "unplayable", which apparently means "Waaah, I can't one-shot, waaaah!" "Waaaah, no more gunblade, waaaaah I can't get free teleports, Waaaah etc etc etc...
I mean, they even admitted they overnerfed her purposefully. It's one thing if they nerfed her into being playable, then I would agree with you. However, that wasn't the case, so I think people have the right to be upset. That said, they will be buffing her and the big hit was only temporary.

Tryndamere Only because there was a time when his spin actually did hurt allies from a bug, so I have actual experience with that..
: Does Zoe deserve the nerf?
Personally, she needs to be reworked not just nerfed. Frontloading her damage onto one ability was a stupid idea because if it's slightly too strong, it needs to be nerfed. If it's slightly too weak, it needs to be buffed. She can't really rely on her other abilities for her damage output to balance it out.

Finally got a key after waiting almost a week Gets one champion shard, nothing else ffs rito. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}
: Autofill Supports refusing to buy Support Items
I tend to "support" lux and buy the first support item I've been doing really well that way (although I main support anyway, I just wanted to do something different) Granted, I'm not high elo. However, that gold income definitely helps since I don't CS
: ... Voice chat is going to be hilarious.

: MFW people are toxic in my games https://i.imgur.com/xj4v1Gr.jpg
I've recently witnessed a video in which, apparently, someone flamed a Riot employee I don't even understand the depths of seething rage someone would need to risk their account for that..

There's an infinite number of levels, and you get exp for showing up. You have to play above average on a champ in that role to get a chest, and you can only do it once a season.
I get what you mean, I'm just referring to that chests also drop cosmetic loot, which is the incentive. Capsules only drop champ shards(and BE) as far as I know
: Let me get this right...
If you're referring to opening the chests you get from getting S ranks, those drop cosmetic loot like skins. That's usually the incentive. Another would be to earn the shards(?) required to hit MR7 which is used show how much time and skill you have accumulated with said champion

: Except they arent, not caring in a jury has no real consequence.
But most people in a Jury aren't young teens that hand out consequences to others either. Also, you inadvertently proved my point that people would abuse the system.
Hibeki (NA)
: Yes and thats entirely why the entire US justice system has been replaced with robots oh wait.
That was such low quality comparison. Someone being an ass in a video game report system has far less severe consequences than someone in a real position of power. They aren't even comparable.
Hibeki (NA)
: It did more than the current system does.
Whether that is true or not, doesn't mean it was better. I'd risk a bot over people who don't care judging someone's fate. You see how toxic people can be in game, now have that applied to potentially removing others from the game. No thanks.
: Hey talking about this, can someone explain me why does Thresh pull doesn't pull through walls (even tho it wouldn't be broken), while Blitz does ?
Thresh is a lot less drastic of a pull, it's more of a mini displacement. The amount it actually pulls someone isn't enough to actually go through a wall, whereas blitz fully displaces someone from one spot, to his position. Also, Thresh can reactivate the ability to go through the wall. So it's kind of the opposite of blitz in a way.
Hibeki (NA)
: Riot needs to actually start putting control of punishments into people again and not a system
Tribunal was useless. People abused the system for meager rewards not to mention people would decide someone's fate based on their own interests, not what is actually the correct call, so tribunal was a bad idea from the start. It just sounded nifty on paper.
AttaBoss (NA)
: FROZEN SHEN??
Whenever they decide to, really. I don't know if there is a specific date, but they used to open up legacy skins about once a year or so. Iirc, it's usually close to the holidays, but I stopped buying them a while ago as the only ones I want are Annie's (which I missed, RIP). I believe the price is 520 RP. Oh and you can get legacy skins out of chests if gambling is your thing. May RNGesus bless you.
: So why does Zoe have such insane damage on her Q?
Honestly, the only thing I had against Zoe was her E. The range, plus that fact that it made an aoe (although single target) if it missed, felt really cheap. Other than that, I didn't have much of a problem with her Q. It was pretty difficult to land and very easily telegraphed. I also dislike her E more than her Q since it's also a CC that benefits everyone on her team and the hitbox was wider. Not to mention if you had her in sight, her Q had to be used twice giving you enough time to predict it, unlike her E. Her W, while annoying, is RNG based. RNG is pretty obnoxious to both parties, so meh. And her ult was pretty easy to counter.
: HotS does this. You have to hit level 5 (about 10 games) with a hero before you can bring them into ranked. I like it, personally. {{champion:51}}
Leveling to 5 in HoTS is MUCH easier and faster than hitting MR 6 with a champion in league. Not to mention HoTS ranked is pretty dead nowadays and most people play QM. So, it's not a great example tbh.

: 3 Refunds per season, upvote if you want 3 refunds per season.
I remember when I bought a wrong skin, but because I used my refunds, support wouldn't do anything about it even though I requested it right after without actually using the skin. It really sucks.
: A question that must be answered by Riot Designers about the Akali Rework
paisy (NA)
: Well yeah but you were being accepting of the fact that Riot is promoting bad business practices
I'm not, but ok? Literally all I said is I can understand why they did it, provided said reason, but I didn't say I agreed with or accepted it. The only ones that really bothered me were the ward ones because I actually wanted to buy them. The chromas didn't bother me as much because I couldn't care less about chromas, doesn't mean I think the business practice itself was a good idea.

True, but what I mean is, they cater a little too much to the highest level of play. The way those people play can be vastly different from the average player, which is the problem. Not saying they need to listen to everyone at one time, but take them into consideration at least. Granted I have no proof they don't, but sometimes we see good ideas float around that are flat out ignored. They could, at the very least, explain why they don't do certain things over others.

: Reminder that if you aren't having fun with League, you should stop playing.
I mostly play because not only did I end up throwing more money at it than I should have (although not as much as others) but also because I like MOBAs but this is the only one that can hold my interest. I like HoTS because I know the characters and I like the objective based gameplay, but I find it gets boring really fast. I like DOTA 2 but some of the decisions Valve makes can be pretty questionable and I don't find the characters as memorable. (also rip my hud skins that don't overlay properly because of the new Hud, and skin effects that broke but were never fixed) I like SMITE because of some of the characters, but the 3rd person play style feels really clunky and a lot of the Gods feel similar to others. And every other MOBA I've played is either very underpopulated, has a weird gimmick or just bland. That said, a lot of the stuff Riot has been doing makes me sad. I just want them to listen and make the game the best they can. But, it seems their best right now, is balancing for the minority of players (LCS) and ignoring everything else. {{sticker:sg-soraka}}

: Well obviously it does for them. But they also lose out money because people don't want to spend that much on chroma or wards.
..which is why I initially stated kind of. I'm not really for locking it behind a bundle either, but I can see why they did it. Besides, this wasn't even the point of my initial comment.
: I don't know any games that are like league which are better than league. Heroes of the Storm is the closest but even that is hard to compare to league
I'd put DOTA 2 even though Valve has done really dumb things to the game. But, I still think Rito does worse right now.
: This really bothers me.
I'm curious, hasn't this skin been disabled before? Maybe even multiple times? I swear I wasn't able to use it a few times.
: Your Skins Aren't Yours
Well, yeah. I'd actually be surprised if people legitimately didn't know this. I've seen complaints about how much money people spent after they're permabanned. another reason not to risk your $3k account on flaming {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
paisy (NA)
: Making something rare for no reason by making it more expensive doesn't make any sense
For riot, it does. It makes people want to spend more money than they initially intended. And at least it's part of a bundle that is appropriate, unlike the wards.
: I could be wrong, but it seems like the shit show really started when HoTS released and Riot felt the need to compete with that garbage ass game (for w/e reason I will never understand). That's when they changed death timers and towers and it's just been one thing after another since then.
I doubt that was the reason. Blizzard is a big name, but the game never could have amounted to league's popularity. It's a fun game, but it's too generalized to appeal to the more veteran moba crowd The only game that had the potential to dethrone LoL and actually make riot react to anything, would've been DOTA 2. In the end, while it poses a threat, the LoL community is too cemented in LoL to really bother.
Rioter Comments
: Why are the Red Chroma's for the Lunar Revel skins exclusive to bundles only?
The only ones that really peeved me were the ward bundles. I can kind of see the reasoning behind the chromas being locked behind a bundle, it makes it rarer and you get all of the other chromas with it. However, what the actual hell is with the ward one? What do wards have to do with garbage gambling boxes? {{sticker:sg-lux-2}}
: Also bard Q
as a bard it feels like it never lands Fighting a bard, it feels like it's hitting me from the other fountain.

: Riot, please keep this custom Ahri Announcer. And make more for us!
I highly doubt this will happen, sadly. Whenever they change the announcer for an event, people beg for a way to keep them. yet, they're removed every time.

: Yup! Riot's currently working on a new client to be deployed hopefully sometime during Season 6. For more information on that, check out the [**2016 Season Update**](http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/site/2016-season-update/client-update.html)!
Rioter Comments
: Funny thing about dota 2 is
I think the main reason is because people buy champions with real money, whereas in DOTA, everyone is free including new heroes. If Riot disabled them in ANY game mode, you can bet a shitstorm would ensue. The only exception would be if they're broken in some way shape or form. Otherwise, I 100% agree with you.
GreenLore (EUW)
: You are kinda late on that. The league of legends has been retconned,it doesn't exist anymore,gameplay is now completely disconnected from the lore.
Which is a real shame, I enjoyed a lot of the lore.
: best ultimate skin. PF ez and DJ sona are not worth but sg udyr is the only way to play udyr.
Myz (NA)
: Fallout 4 isn't that good honestly
I found it to be one of the better games of the year. It isn't on the level of TW3 in terms of story, but as a GAME it's fantastic imo. I played and enjoyed all the mainline FO games and personally, 3 was my least favorite (although I really liked NV). While I was disappointed that 4 removed a lot of the RPG elements, it's still a well made open world FPS game with RPG elements, and probably one of the best so far.
Rioter Comments
: Will the Blitzcranks Poro Roundup game be supported and updated?
Well, now the S in Riot Game(s) is justifiable, so maybe.
: 130 ping oh boy. It like I'm playing at college all over again. I average 100 at home and 130 at college. It honestly was not that bad to have your ping doubled. If your friend quits over gaining ping close to my old levels (which honestly not that bad, but more of pathetic compared to most games I play).
I went from 110 to 40 and it feels smoother and more responsive now. 100 - 130 doesn't feel that much different from each other, but thinking 16 - 130 isn't a lot is flat out wrong.
