: Client is getting worse
Edgy skins are more important. Except when it's for my boi Vel'Koz. I'm serisouly starting to think that Rito is in over their heads with all the other projects they announced. The game and the client are filled with bugs, some of them game breaking and we're not getting any updates to fix them and no news that they're working on them. As I said before, I've actually lost promos before of the mouse 4 bug, because of the 100% loading screen that won't let you reconnect unless you ctrl alt/del etc. It's extremely frustrating to work hard to climb and being on a massive winning streak just to get tilted back two divisions because you lost promos before they even started.

: What are your biggest fears regarding your favourite champions/regions' future?
Regarding Vel'Koz {{champion:161}} ... That he might never, ever get a new skin cuz he's not an edgy champ or does not have massive boobs.
: New player and looking to learn about the lore, but where do I start?
learn about Vel'Koz. He's the king of balance and needs a new skin.
: to be fair Riot did look into making people not refund true damage Ekko by trying to find a way to toggle his music..... **meanwhile dozens of complaints about FPS dropping in recent patches go unanswered**

I get it skins makes profit and this is what the company runs on but it's kinda sad when a thread about music gets a super fast answer and a thread about thresh's lantern tip thingy also gets an answer but no one comes forward to say "hey guys we're aware of the problems with the client and the game and we're working on it" PS: plz Rito new Vel'koz skin
: After 4 years, I finally climbed out of Bronze, AMA
duo queue is actually harder to climb except if you're playing with a straight up challenjour smurf. You get matched with lower MMR players (the tilted, the bad etc) because the system sees duo queue as a big advantage. It works up until you win too much and then you get the even more tilted and bad players and can't carry 0/12 top laner and combined 0/56 mid and jungle. Congrats on climbing but at some point you will see it will get drastically harder because of duo queue.

: What Is Being Done to Address Mobility?
more mobility to combat mobility... fire vs fire etc etc yours truly, Rito
: Honestly can just get a completely fresh/new client at this point?
I thought I was the only one with the random ass alt tabbing when I used my active item binded to my mouse. I lost my last gold 2 promo game because of shit like this in a crucial baron fight. I also lost promos cause of the client crashing in champ select and not letting me reconnect when the game started. This game is a mess right now and for how simple it is and how much of a massive company Rito has become it's unacceptable. Maybe putting more energy into solving issues instead of making the next lux louis vuitton cringy skin would be a good idea. in b4 2 new yasuo gucci/prada ultimate skins.

{{champion:161}} but Rito doesn't like him because they don't make new skins for him...

I want to know if {{champion:161}} disintegrated enough people and things to learn how to make himself a nice new skin? If so, did he share the knowledge with Rito? Thanks.

Because people know that NOT every games can be carried, and because they know that this is a teamwork game. You will rarely carry solo, but one guy is mostly enough to ruin a game. The game is not played only be mastermind strategists with impeccable logic. It is the other way around, most players have huge flaws in their tactical and strategical thinking and logic. ,,Luck" does not really exist in game. What you call luck is enemy doing mistake and you capitalizing on that mistake. Surrender rates are highest in high elo because people rarely do mistakes there and are good in closing the games once they take advantage. 95% of playerbase is nowhere near that. So high elo is not good argument for ,,ff15". It actually helps our side of argument - lower and mid elo games are full of mistakes(and some of them huge mistakes) so only few games are totally unwinnable and certainly are not determined at 15 minutes.

: Riot just needs to take more chances with champions and giving them skins. I mean, Lux's skin spree started after people flocked to SG Lux. Anyhow take my +1.
they're not gonna do that unless people ask for it... either that or he starts getting play time in the LCS/LEC/Pro scene.

: nah man every season the game is getting worse https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bv7dJWZxwXA this is prime time league !!! sarcasm off people don't tend to use their brains on these boards so it's very likely that 2 people will agree with you
I quit for an entire year (june 2018 to june 2019) because of season 8. Snowbally games with insanely strong bot lanes (with ridiculous shields). Weak ass towers and basically what OP said. This season isn't even close to what season 8 was. The game will always be flawed. There are 144 champions and it's still growing. Balancing the game with all the items and champions will never be possible. Sometimes assassins will like the new meta, sometimes ADCs will like the new meta, sometimes tanks will like the new meta etc. You can't please everyone.

why do you hate him? you don't like getting 100-0 from a mile away? :P
: yeah, no way a tentacle monster would fit in an anime girl skin. never seen anything like that, nope, never, not AT ALL.
: League of Legends turns me into a different person.
you take it too seriously. like most of us. take it for what it is, a game. this game is extremely competitive and competitive people get addicted to it like it's a hard drug. ever since I came back after a year of break, I play my ranked games like they are normals. If I win, I win and if I lose who cares I'll just win the next one. I'm slowly climbing to play and I've always been a gold player.
: Noodle Monster Vel'Koz.
as much as I would like something badass for him, if it was a funny skin, that would be the one.
: Just my opinion: Star Guardian always <3 (My favorite skin line) However... Personality Core Vel'Koz could definitely be an Ultimate skin, but prolly just be called PROGRAM OVERLORD VEL'KOZ He evolves from a basic programmed Droid into a full blown Motherboard Monster! Think 'Mother' from "I Am Mother" or 'Sally' from "Oblivion"! It would be awesome! He could start from a basic droid who believes it's function is to serve it's master... then as he evolves, his voice lines shift to "I am your master, I am your creator, I am the ultimate evolution of your kind!"

: I have a support main in top lane against a million mastery Darius main
got autofilled jungle today. I never play jungle. I literally unlocked Nunu two days ago and played a single normal game with him. Proceeded to pick him as my jungle pick. Fed the shit out of our vayne, counter jungled eve, counter ganked her, took drags and baron. Finishing the game with S-. You can be autofilled and do good. You just have to try harder.
: given how high Vel'Koz's play rate is I wouldn't be surprised if this happened
I didn't even look at his playrate. It's that high right now? When I play him it's basically freelo.

: Hard Stuck in Silver 1
It's the opposite for me. I've stopped playing for a full year and came back in June and had a really easy time getting to gold 3 compared to the other seasons. Gold feels like Silver this season. I'm gonna say it though, Flex Plat is nowhere near Solo Queue Plat. You have way more chances of getting carried hard in Flex because you are with organised teams with a high chance of being against trolls or people who do not pick their mains and play like they're in normals. I just looked at your match history and it's pretty clear you're no where near Plat level of performances. If you had massive advantages in KDA, Damage, Vision Control, CS and you somehow almost always lost, I would understand. It's not the case at all. Sucks but you're a big reason why you're still Silver.

: Zed...
I constantly counterpick myself into zed with Vel'Koz and I outlane, outdamage and outroam him almost every single time. Including mains. He's not that hard to deal with. Atleast not as a mage who can simply build zhonya. Talon on the other hand is scary when he gets ahead. Instant death.

: well i off role as mid and mana kinda has been an issue for a while in my eyes. Look at it this way do you ever worry about not having enough mana after your first back? I don't because of items like {{item:3802}} or {{item:3010}}

Look at it this way do you ever worry about not having enough mana after your first back? I don't because of items like {{item:3802}} or {{item:3010}} point is more mages are going to be forced to by mana items early and it will slow their powerspikes even more. Against OP as fuck bot lanes (shields, safe support picks, cheap itemization), against assassins and fighters with high damage/mobility and also good itemization. It's utter non sense and completely retarded at this point. Mages are weak let's make them weaker when they actually have shit mobility/worse itemization, have to land skillshots, actually have to have good positioning because the support is too busy protecting his 1k burst per second autoattack dog. They are killing a class that's already dying.

: Why this game retains it's numbers.
I think you are forgetting that it's an extremely addictive game especially for the people who like the competitive aspect. Last season I wasn't having much fun at all and this season I'm pretty much always raging/tilted but it somehow still pulls me in. Almost as if I hoped next time i would log in the game would be as good/fun as it was a few seasons ago.
: Vel'Koz Appreciation Thread
he's my main but for some reason i'm atrocious with him this season. Even the games where I start really well and dominate my laner, I get completely rekt and become useless after laning phase. Last season I had 60% winrate with over 4 of KDA in 60 something games with him and this season it's almost a garanteed loss when I pick him. Don't know why...
