: This game has to do something about smurfs asap
>"I'm too old for reflex games, that's why I gravitated towards MOBAs" Like it or not reaction speed, reflexes, and good mechanics are still very important in MOBAs. Why do you think pro LoL players are typically around eighteen - early/mid twenties? Either way, smurfing isn't against the rules, and I feel like you heavily exaggerate the amount of smurfs in your games. There are plenty of good reasons to smurf, not everyone who smurfs is looking to bully low elo kids. So, get so good at the game that you can get into Challenger where people can't really smurf anymore, or keep crying about it. This isn't something that's going away, you're not the first person to complain, probably won't be the last.
: Warding is for the support
Infinite control wards? That seems a bit overkill... Riot even nerfed it not too long ago, you used to be able to carry up to 3-- now you can only carry 2 at a time. Vision is extremely powerful in League, if you let players have too much to the point where both teams can know exactly where the enemies are at any time, a lot of potential for exciting and interesting plays is removed. That's why pro games were so boring to watch for a while-- both teams could have perfect vision, so kills often didn't even start happening until ~20 minutes into the game when they started teamfighting.

>"Meanwhile SG Ahri or SG Jinx are 1850RP AND have almost the same stuff as...SG Lux" Very wrong. Star Guardian Jinx and Ahri include all new visuals and animations (for everything, not just emotes and recall) as well as a completely new voice over. >"We're getting less quality for more money. Even if it's looking better than few years ago, it's still... worse. Why other SG skins don't have their own dance animations or idle animations too?" Compare today's Star Guardian models to Lux's. I'll wait. They're a lot higher quality. And many of them have unique recall and homeguard animations. >"Tbh that skin for skin (Pajama Guardian) were at least a little better idea, cuz still had the main skin animations but with new model with a little different concept. And it costs 750RP if u have SG skin. So it was anyway cheaper, yet with quality." You're complaining about the price and quality of skins and praise PAJAMA GUARDIANS of all things??? Pajama Guardians was obviously a low effort cash grab. If anything those are what you should be complaining about. You are paying over half the original skin's price for a mushy weird looking version of it. The quality of skins has gone WAY up. The prices unfortunately have sort of settled to match.
: Female platinum/diamond player looking for help
Hey, fellow female diamond support player here. I played for my college's A team last year and I'm trying out again this year as well. From the way you explained things it sounds like there could possibly be one of a few situations going on here-- What is the average rank of the players trying out? If you were already in the top of the ranks for players it makes sense to give you less play time since you're basically already a shoe-in. If that's not the case then it seems like the coaches were being a bit rude and unprofessional and I'm sorry you have to go through that. I'm not really in a position to be able to play regularly with another team to try and help you out since I have my own college team to worry about right now, but I could share some of the advice my coach has given me in the past if you think it would help.
: The past couple skin lines we have gotten are dark and edgy. KDA Dark Star Battle Boss Project Elderwood Star Guardian was supposed to be the break from that, it's magical and bright and colorful and instead we got slapped with more dark and edgy. Does Xayah fit dark and edgy? Yea, but nobody wanted it in the first place.
Are you really trying to pass off K/DA and Elderwood (and I'd like to note that Battle Boss is HIGHLY debatable) as dark and edgy??? K/DA is about a bunch of freakin' K-pop stars. It's not dark OR edgy, AT ALL. I think you're confusing "dark colors" for "dark thematic". The K/DA skins are, as previously stated, supposed to be a Korean pop-star band. They're idols pretty much. Their costumes include a lot of dark blue/black leather pieces, accented by various pinks, purples, and gold. They're not really 'dark' or 'edgy' at all. If I had to describe the style, I'd say those skins are more so trying to be 'cool' and 'hip'. Elderwood isn't really dark or edgy either. It's just magical forest spirits. Of the new batch I suppose you could argue Nocturne's skin is a bit 'dark' with the mask being reminiscent of a skull and dead branches, but I'd also argue that the fault here more lies on Nocturne himself-- being literally a living shadow monster with blades for arms. The Ahri and Veigar skins look pretty whimsical after all, not really dark or edgy. Ahri is covered in flowers and her ability effects take on this motif, and her tails glow with patel greens and pinks. Veigar looks like a goofy mushroom wizard, his effects now include butterflies, and he takes on a bio-luminescent glow. Dark Star, by the name, of course is going to be a bit dark. PROJECT being based in a dystopian cyborg future, I will say yes, is also a bit dark and edgy. You conveniently leave out some of the more whimsical recent skin releases, though. Arcade is always pretty fun/upbeat. We also got the new addition of the Demacia Vice skins, which sport a nice vaporware aesthetic. Battle Academia, while not being super whimsical, was a fun skin line that wasn't particularly dark or edgy. The Cats vs. Dogs skins were all really bright and goofy. (I'm not going to name every single skin line between K/DA and now, but I'd just like to point out that K/DA was NOT within "the past couple skin lines we have gotten", and the Pajama Guardian skins even came out between K/DA and now.) >"Star Guardian was supposed to be the break from that, it's magical and bright and colorful and instead we got slapped with more dark and edgy." Elderwood is also magical, bright, and colorful. Not necessarily magical, but Pool Party, Super Galaxy, Arcade, Valentine's skins, and the Snowdown skins are all typically pretty bright/cheery/colorful. There are plenty of bright skins that aren't Star Guardians. >"Does Xayah fit dark and edgy? Yea, but nobody wanted it in the first place." I wanted it. I personally absolutely HATE the more girly and feminine aesthetics in League. I was dreading the Star Guardian release because I figured it would be the same ritual as the past releases, 'pick a few popular champions, and stuff them in colorful magical girl outfits'. I was pleasantly surprised by these skins. There's a TON of other people out there who also love the new skins. You can't just claim 'nobody wanted it' because the vocal members of the boards are protesting. Because some people DO like it. If you don't like it, these skins weren't for you. Wait for the next release.

I've seen plenty of people on Reddit and Twitter who LOVE them. I can link you to many many posts where people are praising the skins. It seems pretty split. The boards just love to hate on literally everything. Can't always make everyone happy--- doesn't mean noone is. I personally like the Xayah and Neeko skins.

Raileser (NA)
: Uncorrupted Xayah and Rakan skin
They're based on Star Guardian lore. That's about as 'skin line based' as it gets. Star Guardian skins were getting dull and samey anyways. They were just the same generic magical girl outfits on different champions. The corrupt/anti-Star Guardian thing shakes it up in a good way IMO. Xayah and Rakan's outfits both still look reminiscent of the magical girl outfits donned by the other Star Guardians while taking on a darker more iridescent look that I think works very well for the champions and story. Zoe's skin is a bit... meh, but I still like the idea of introducing a villain. Neeko's skin is still pretty 'traditional Star Guardian'.

There's something called competence. What makes you think someone is going to want to play with you after you banned their champ? You're basically TELLING them what to do, in the terms of "You're not allowed to play that champ with me because I think it'll cost us the game, so play someone else that I think is better". There's nothing wrong with what this guy said, that's completely ridiculous to ban a champion that someone genuinely enjoys playing, and wants to get better with them. And if that person decides to give a toxic response, I don't even blame them. You can't be serious thinking that someone will comply with you after you banned the champion they wanted to play, they're going to make that game one of the worst games you've ever played.
??? Did you even *read* my post? Because OP said there is NO reason to ban someone's hover, I'm arguing that sometimes there IS. I was saying in the case of a highly contested meta pick that the opponent will choose first. Of course I'm going to ban that shit. I'm not saying JUST strong champions. I'm talking pick/ban champions like old Kassadin, Yuumi last patch, or Hecarim from earlier in the season. Where the team who gets them pretty much just wins. If you want to play something like that and our team doesn't have first pick you better believe it's off the fucking table. There's something called competence. Maybe read the post before you knee-jerk react spewing stuff like this.

: Probably not gonna happen because of the considerable chance players will use inappropriate pictures. Happens in Black Ops all the time. League maintains a T rating currently and custom summoner icons, while not something the ESRB is supposed to account for as it's considered online interactions, would potentially up its rating. Black Ops has M by default. So it's not as serious.
Not to mention people could just download the images of Riot's icons and use them without paying for or earning them. At that point what's stopping someone from using any of the icons in the shop, or a Challenger solo/duo icon from season 5?
: how do i lane as support?
I'm only D4, but also an enchanter support main. TBH part of it might be that Lulu just isn't that great right now. She's pretty much the weakest of the enchanters, IMO. Almost everything she excels at right now another enchanter can do just as well or better. I don't think it's your fault that you feel like you're playing 'more passively' on this champion. Her poke is just outdone by almost every other support's, her shield was gutted, and stepping up to poke with Q or even long range E+Q doesn't feel worth it most of the time. She feels more reactionary than proactive, like you need to wait for your opponent to mess up to make things happen.

Banoffee (NA)
: Prestige Borders
The borders, IMO, aren't meant to enhance the art in any way. They're more a status symbol. Borders nowadays are usually only available during a skin's initial launch for extra money, or during events as a craftable prize. And Prestige Edition skins are one. big. status. symbol. They're flashy expensive chromas marketed as rare and exclusive skins. They're like the chaser variants of League skins. The border is kind of redundant, yes, but so is the entire concept. That being said, most of the time borders aren't much more obstructive to the splash than the fact it's only a wedge of the original art itself. If you really want to appreciate the art go find a high res upload of the extended splash online and stare at it for a while. Going as far as to make a Riot employee remove content for your account for the sake of, 'valuing art' in a loading screen you won't stare at for more than 30s is quite frankly ludicrous. Why buy/craft the icons in the first place if you're just going to have them removed? Most of that content has to be paid for or specifically earned in the first place. I get it. I'm an artist. I love many of Riot's splash arts. I have two of their splash's as my laptop background and lock screen. But your complaint here is kind of pedantic and over the top.

I mean you kinda hit it on the head with your last comment. >"Neeko doesn't share Passives with these two champions and their form changes are connected to their Passive, therefore Neeko cannot become ranged when she turn's into kayle and neeko will always be Base Kayn." I'm pretty sure this is all intended. If it were a bug or mistake Riot probably would've at least acknowledged it by now.
: Flex ranked is completely and utterly fucked. Using your game as an example, the Katarina is a Kat 1 trick in Diamond 4 solo queue. In Flex, they are *technically* Silver 1. They are likewise in a 5 man premade including a Iron 4 and Bronze 4 (in Flex), which means matchmaking is considering the overall rank of that team to be ~ mid or high bronze. This is obviously not correct if we go by actual skill; a Diamond 4 Katarina 1 trick should not ever be in the same Ranked game as a Iron or Bronze or Silver. Flex Queue is made via pure stupidity though, and thus does not take solo/duo ranked or normals into account. Basically, just expect any flex match to be completely fucked because Riot made it a completely separate queue divorced from other MMR, thus opening things like a low diamond queuing with a low iron player.
>"Flex ranked is completely and utterly fucked." I second this. I'm Diamond 4 solo/duo, Gold 2 in promos in flex. My flex games are pretty much my ADC and I, and sometimes one random Diamond player on our team. And then 2-3 Diamonds on the enemy team. With the rest of the players on either team being anywhere from Low Silver to High Platinum. Games are usually decided by whoever's Silver/Platinum players int harder. Very fun. /s

'Phallas' sounds WAYYY too close to the English word 'Phallus' which is another word male genitalia. Alright, I can work with this feedback. Thanks for offering more than a oneliner response. The goal was with her personality to be deranged to a point where it doesn't make sense to define it. It wasn't meant to be a defining personality trait in itself, it was meant to be the focus point that influences her personality traits. As stated, every single other champion in the game, maybe say for shaco, has some form of purpose or grey zone in who they are. And even Shaco has some form of intended gain in the form of his own joy. Yeah, I could have written it out more to make clearer definitions, now that you point it out, it does look somewhat mixed up. I should have written it out rather than try to keep it short. i realize that. As for the name...Another namesake could be Pallas, the honorary title of Athena, goddess of War and Intellect, but not a single fucking person, say for the one guy who's comment came right after yours, have even dared to think about it. This entire name trainwreck started because one guy wanted to make sure nobody could think of any other possibilities. Aside from that, Phallus is the name of one of the lesser mythologic gods of joy and fertility. The synonymous terminology for a genitalia was taken after his namesake...so even then the comparison is really only there if someone specifically looks for it, and I don't have many good news if you see a name and the first comparison popping into your mind is a dick.
>"As for the name...Another namesake could be Pallas, the honorary title of Athena, goddess of War and Intellect, but not a single fucking person, say for the one guy who's comment came right after yours, have even dared to think about it." I'm not much into the finer details of remembering every name in mythology. If you wanted Pallas why not just start with that name? You could've avoided this entire situation. >"This entire name trainwreck started because one guy wanted to make sure nobody could think of any other possibilities." I have never seen any of your previous threads before, so I have no idea what you're talking about. I was giving you my feedback based on first impression. >"Aside from that, Phallus is the name of one of the lesser mythologic gods of joy and fertility. The synonymous terminology for a genitalia was taken after his namesake..." Ok, so what does this have to do with your champion? >"so even then the comparison is really only there if someone specifically looks for it, and I don't have many good news if you see a name and the first comparison popping into your mind is a dick." DEFINITELY NOT, LMAO. You don't have to look very hard at all to see the name 'Phallas' and instantly connect it to 'Phallus'. It's literally a letter off. You ask for serious criticism only, and even go as far as to have the mods disable voting, yet when you get serious criticism you come back with defensive arguments and personal attacks. I am a Fine Arts major going on my fourth year of university. I am very interested in character design and the likes, and have done a lot of study in that area, as well as many required art history classes. The words 'phallus' and 'phallic' come up pretty frequently when discussing certain parts of art history, especially Greco-Roman stuff. That's kinda why my mind makes the ever so difficult jump (sarcasm, in case you didn't get that) of one letter. Even without this background, I'm sure most mature adult humans can and would make that connection fairly easily, though. Riot has talked about having to change champion names before because they didn't translate well into other languages, being that they looked/sounded similar to existing words in that language that may cause issue. [Here's the post about it.](https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/en-us/2017/12/naming-new-champions/) No matter how much you may like the name, and think it's clever or whatever, it still sounds way too close to 'phallus' to ever be used. This is a valid criticism, take it or not. You should also probably work on responding to people in a more polite manner if you really want people to take you seriously.

A 1.5 point and click silence??? Yeah, sorry, but no thank you. The entire kit seems very overloaded in my opinion, and doesn't make much sense cohesively.

Disorders. Are. Not. A. Valid. Personality. Trait. People are more than that. By making her entire character, 'she has BPD', you kind of dehumanize people with these conditions and simplify them to nothing more than a walking disorder. ESPECIALLY since you continue to elaborate with, "emptying her of any Positive emotions and rendering her to be all Rage, Pain and to suffer an endless loop of Inferiority-Complexes". You should at least read up on BPD before you try to write a character who has it, because this isn't really accurate at all-- you're making it an all-consuming negative leaving your character devoid of any other hint of a personality. The way you've written it just comes off as very uninformed and insensitive. It's ok to write character with mental/personality disorders. IT IS NOT ok to make said mental/personality disorder the 'defining trait' of a character. Also the name. 'Phallas' sounds WAYYY too close to the English word 'Phallus' which is another word male genitalia.

Hey! Someone from a fledgling college LoL team here. I think this is a FANTASTIC idea, even for teams with players who have access to eSports suitable setups at home. The only thing stopping it, is what Riot does for their CLoL tournament. When you register your team roster for the tournament, Riot temporarily gives you access to League Unlocked-- allowing you access to every champion as if you owned them, even if you do not. Having designated accounts for competitive use would be really neat, though. I unfortunately doubt they'll do this.

A lot of people in lower ELO play damage/mage supports. Really cheesy stuff. It could be easy for an enchanter newbie to be overwhelmed, even playing easy mode with Yuumi. The funny thing is you're right. The higher ELO you are, the higher her ban rate. These are the numbers from u.gg. Grand Master: 53.7% ban rate Master: 51.8% ban rate Diamond: 50.0% ban rate Platinum: 40.5% ban rate Gold: 28.7% ban rate Silver: 17.4% ban rate Those numbers are pretty stark, but even in Silver that ban rate is pretty significant, so the people who say she's just not problematic are delusional to say the least.
Thanks for that stats! That's actually pretty interesting and does follow my theory about Yuumi being more of a problem the higher the ELO. You're right about her still receiving a significant portion of bans in Silver, though, which is interesting. The jump in ban percent from Gold to Platinum and Platinum to Diamond is also very curious. Either way I think we can agree that the cat is a bit too strong.

Because Yuumi can't carry alone. She's completely dependent on her teammates. If her team isn't doing is well she's useless. Blitz, Pyke or Thresh land one ability and you're dead. THAT is annoying. Don't get me wrong Yuumi poke is annoying, but there's counterplay to it and it's not a death sentence if she hits you with something.
Maybe it's only a problem higher up, then? Yuumi is pretty much banned every ranked game I play/watch my ADC friend play. She's so difficult to deal with because of how free she makes things for her ADC/team. She pretty much guarantees a free lane phase and then turns any member of her team into a monster mid/late game. I hear a lot of players around Silver claiming she's not a big deal though, so I feel like it's really something up with game knowledge/teams.
: Context for the guy who I was arguing with, the guy who's was saying hateful speech, telling me to die and suck his dick? Like I agree I was toxic, what I don't agree is the context it is taken without the other side of the story. Also I don't like how I lost my temper for one game out of 100, and get banned for 14 days, but I still agree I was toxic.
How was I supposed to know that? You only provided your side of the chat. Context doesn't matter. You were toxic, you get punished. If they really were acting like you say, hopefully they'll get punished as well. But you're responsible for your own actions.

: New Summoner Spells?
Brush- what exactly do you mean by 2x2? I don't think this would be very useful outside of niche situations. Just because you make a bush doesn't mean the enemy doesn't know you're there. This would probably only be useful to Rengar. Cloak- Ever wondered why not all champions have access to invisibility? It's because not all of them should. Plus, 1 second sounds really underwhelming for a summoner spell. This would either be useless or so unbelievably broken that they would have to nerf it until it was useless. Shrink- What's the point of this, exactly? You instantly cut their HP in half but they can't die? I could see this being used to troll/grief, but not much else. Invigorate- You can just take cleanse to counter ignite, plus you can also use it to remove CC. Infinitely more useful and already exists. Petrify- A free point and click cassiopeia ult every couple minutes? No thanks.
: Yeah I deserve it, I wish their was context tho.
Context for what? Your title hit it pretty square on the head-- you deserved it. You were toxic and spamming chat with rude remarks and negativity.

: I'd MUCH rather lane against Yuumi than someone like Blitz, Pyke, or Thresh honestly.
W H Y. Yuumi is so busted. She hardly ever even gets through bans. Pyke is the only other champion comparable. They're both stupid strong right now. Blitz and Thresh are nothing, those are easy lanes by comparison.
: Weird ELO
Are you playing norms? Matchmaking in norms is wonky since it has a completely separate MMR from ranked queues. I'm diamond in solo/duo and some of my norms games are with nothing but silvers/golds, and sometimes I play with all diamonds. Happens.

They're saying that their rank doesn't matter to them. I'm the same way. I have placed silver two seasons in the past and I really don't care what my rank is. I MAY place this year, just to see where I fall with the new tiers. Doesn't mean I don't care about winning / losing, but I don't see rank as an accurate representation of my skills at the game. Unlike the OP, I am not a OTP. I own all champions, and play almost all of them frequently. If I actually narrowed my champion pool down enough to "main" anyone, I am confident I would climb quite easily, but I don't care to.
It's 100% fine to be a for fun player. There's nothing wrong with casually enjoying League and not caring about rank. But you can't simultaneously say, 'my rank isn't an accurate representation of my skills, if I cared to actually learn to play a few champions well and tried to win I could DEFINITELY climb' I'm sure you could climb. But you're not trying to do that, and not trying to work for it, so yes, your rank is a pretty accurate representation of your skills. That's like saying, 'Well, if I put in 100's of hours of practice I COULD be an amazing artist, but I don't feel like it. But I have the potential to, so I feel my current artwork isn't an accurate representation of my skills.'

I mean, Hey, If they're taking out Mega Evolutions, Those shitty Z-moves, And some of the more shitty mechanics like pokesneak and reinforcements in favor for making an honest, Straight forward game that doesn't rely on flashy shit, Where a Pro scene can raise without relying on these ass mechanics, Good for them.
They're not going to though. The promise of a 'fresh and better meta' is a thinly veiled excuse for not having enough time and resources to fit everything in by their release deadline. I wasn't a huge fan of Z-moves, but mega evolutions were actually pretty cool, and they're replacing it with this garbage dynamaxing mechanic. Congrats, you made their models... bigger. Now only if they could do that for the rest of the Pokemon instead we'd have a full dex. :D And if by reinforcements you mean SOS battles, that is one mechanic I'm going to be devastated to see leave. SOS chaining is one of THE BEST methods of shiny hunting I've ever used, it's a lot more tolerable than the god forsaken poke'radar garbage.

Have you checked to see what other people are building/buying? From what I understand the more a champion is purchased by any players the less it will appear in the shop pool. You need to not only focus on your own team but pay attention to others as well.

You have a point about the SG having a similar style in terms of what i'm proposing with the whole Suit idea, but I never really found myself personally drawn to the SG Skin Line mainly due to the lack of distinction between most of the SG Skins. Even if there's no chance of happening, I sort of still like the idea of having something like Shyvana with Hologram like Dragon Features in her R Form.
I agree it'd be neat, as I also prefer the gritty post-apocalyptic cyberpunk aesthetic of the PROJECT skins as opposed to the bright anime-esque Super Galaxy. And let us not even dare talk about the other futuristic machine skin-line..._ Program_... I just doubt Riot would give all 3 of these champions another futuristic robot skin since they each already have one.

Your gold income is stunted. You are immobile and easy to kill if anyone gets onto you. Basically if you don't snowball the lane and get kills somehow you don't really do much until the LATE LATE game. If Veigar is working out for you, more power to you. But I def don't think he's the best pick for climbing right now. team just had a 20 kill lead. i had tons of gold from ults and you know what my tema does? gets cocky and they all think they can 1 v 9. wonderufl dude.
Sometimes it do be like that. If I had a nickel for every ADC in diamond that I've wanted to strangle I'd have a lot of nickels. Happens at every ELO, never gets better, gotta keep trying anyway.
: Human Hybrid Champs that could also be part of Skin Lines like PROJECT
-Super Galaxy Nidalee -Super Galaxy Shyvana -Super Galaxy Elise Super Galaxy is literally the futuristic mech skin line for non-human/transforming champions. I doubt they'll get PROJECT skins.
