: The newest kotaku article made me think

How would you know you weren't being targeted because of your diverse background? Why would anyone want to work at riot? I mean who wants to spend 40 minutes trapped on the 405 coming and going only to get into the office and hope that your bosses are just going to take turns farting in your face today instead of doing some of the other stuff that's been alleged. > > This is why telecommuting is such a great thing, you aren't driving forever and it's safer for employees if they aren't in the office today. I thought you woke, but apparently you didn't. Kotaku article should of made you think... of blocking and removing those illegitimate articles that does nothing but create lies. And you, I thought you would of known better than that. Didn't they teach you smuts in school to always verify your source.

If that's the case, just get knocked back by him and don't dodge it.

And here you are, using what he said, as a direct quote from the Bible, to laugh about "bible quotes."

: This article is what makes me want to take a break from league
The article itself is sexist. "Lacy" made her primary goal to hire a female into the leadership role? For what reason, other than she wants a female in the leadership role? You got to be kidding me. I'm glad nobody at riot would hire a random female just to hire a female. If you're going to do that, you're the catalyst for gender bias. People get put into leadership role is because they qualify to be in the position, not because of their gender. And given where this article was written (kotaku), I can already tell where this is going. Kotaku is damn bias towards females and always write questionable articles regarding fake sexism in the work place. You can say what you want, if no female in the work place was put in leadership role... It's probably because they didn't qualify for the position. And likewise, if male leadership isn't part of the workplace, is probably because they didn't qualify. You can run your numbers, talk about how sexism is prevalent in the work place, in people minds, whatever the case is. Don't care. Most of the time, people are put in leadership role is due to connections and half the time, it is because they worked their ass off to get there. To randomly choose some "female" because we "lack" females, it's damn gender bias on the highest degree.

One would think you could handle that before accusing somebody of verb/noun confusion. Someone might think before deleting threads accusing someone of a sexual act because of the word "necrophiliac." In my case, it was just a typo kid. If we are going to start deleting threads regarding sexual act, well then the word gay should be banned because it's a sexual act between a male and a male. But, the irony is strong, isn't it?

Always forcing it on us. I personally liked that there was not intimacy between the characters of this game. It was always in full swing, how you think people have babies? It's not force when you're require to eat to live. It's only forced if they shove it down your throat when not necessary. In this Varus case, unnecessary, no point to it whatsoever, therefore... Forced down throats. In case if "straight agenda" always in full swing, well, you wouldn't be here if it wasn't. Glad you existed though, hopefully common sense will hit you in the head at some point. We can go on and on, but if you're understanding of what is natural and unnatural has been distorted, then there's no point to this.

It's basically shoving that sexuality bs down our throat. They can't just leave it alone, and leave the sexuality stuff for home. They had to insert it and make it public. No different from someone trying to sale you a $200 car insurance quota by spamming your phone, which, you never gave them your number. Such is life.

And I'm quitting not because of the lore change you moron, I'm quitting because of the things I listed in my last sentences that are according to BE changes, removal of mystery champion shard, and getting too old for this. No. They did it because the new lore team wants to start creating more bold and interesting stories. There is nothing interesting about his previous lore that would make sense for new Varus today. They wanted to tell a story that every league of legends player could relate to, but in a way that made sense for new LoL. No matter who they put this one, new character or not. People like you who are homobphobic, would have said the same thing. It's not about the champion but the fact that it is a LGBTQ character. You probably didn't even read the new lore at all.

: At what point did they ever announce what sexuality he was before this change, you have no idea what he was before
> [{quoted}](name=YaRossy,realm=NA,application-id=yrc23zHg,discussion-id=MpRpZ6NN,comment-id=0001,timestamp=2017-11-30T21:28:15.110+0000) > > At what point did they ever announce what sexuality he was before this change, you have no idea what he was before That's the problem, why even announce it? The game was sexuality neutral, so why start now? Oh because it's "fitting?" No, it's because political agenda, messaging their opinions on their views using their platform, and forcing views on generations. At not point in the game did they ever have to announce anything related to sexuality, gender, or any real life political views. But that went down hill today, Riot officially made it public with the first revealed sexuality of a character in game. There was literally no point to it. Regardless if you like it or not, there are a fundamentally strong groups of people who disagree with homosexuality who plays this game. Enforcing an ideology on those people just because of one's own view, is no different than forcing a religion on a group of people who doesn't want that religion. Keep it out of the game, keep the game clean, and stay away political views. Usually you'll have a safe environment with both parties in agreement. But that wall has been created and the division will start. Good job, keep it up, that's if you want separation.
: You are making it about the gay agenda when it actually isn't. Read the lore you imbecile before you make stupid comments. The two of three souls inhabiting the body are homosexual. Varus is not homosexual and the Darkin side probably had a wife and kid. Read the lore before you make assumptions. Moron.

Out of 24 champions, 12 of them are 6300 BE, and the rest are roughly 4800 BE. :) So assuming you win seven and lose 3 a day, in a day, your first win of the day with the average of around 30 minutes for game, technically 27 minutes, but I'm just using 30 to make it simple, 205 for win, 167 for loss and the 400 for win of the day plus 50 BE. So in a day, you will gain around 1435 from your wins, 501 for losses, 400 from first win of the day, then 50 BE as well meaning in a day you are generally gonna get around 2336 exp and 50 BE. At your currently level of 38, assuming you are empty, the next win of the day and win will net you a level, putting you to 100 BE from first wins, plus the 800 to 810 average. So in about 13 games, you will level a day for around 900 to 910 BE. Also, you will get a massive amount once you hit 40, getting around 1.5 to 2 k at that milestone. So, from 38 to 40, expect around 910+910+1500 BE for 3320, then another level after that, at 41 another 910 for 4230 meaning you can mystery champion at around 52 games. So an average of five to six days for now the 4550 BE you will be getting from 41 to 46 at around 65 games for another mystery champion.

: Pretty much, what people have worked out is that for newer players who lack champions and only play a few games a day, the system is MILES faster then the old one, especially early on, if you are a veteran who plays a lot and only needs a few champions, the system is the worst for you.

: You played and won 44 games in a day? Serious note, the amount is lower as IonKarthusCannon has shown, but if you get a champion you want to buy, then you also pay 2/3rds of the normal price.

Don't know, don't care. I know with the old system, I was getting 2 champions per day using the hextech crafting + IP + champion shard to reroll into permanent champion. This system lets me do neither. It's very slow in terms of hextech crafting, and the BE gained isn't enough to get the champions I need per day. I usually just buy the mystery shard, but even that has increased in price. To say, that this new system is better and is faster, is a lying joke. It's probably faster in terms of how you get BE, but it definitely ain't faster in terms of how long you're able to get enough to buy a champion due to increased prices in the store.

Disagree. Gambling is gambling. Even in the form of cosmetics, if there are chances involved, you're gambling. There will be restriction implemented for those under the age of 21 and I agree with Chris Lee on this matter. This has been a running theme in the gaming community for far too long. Any minor involved in spending money for a "chance" at anything should be prohibited and the law of gambling should be considered if under 21.

This thread sucks. And no, that is not the cure to cancer, nor is it a breakthrough regardless of what most of you are reading. It's a chemical compound that stops cancer, but still have a massive side effect. Claiming that it has less side effects than chemotherapy is ridiculously stupid considering they haven't even tested @#$5. Already you can tell this article is biased towards pharmaceutical companies. This "discovery" is no f'ing cure to anything. It'll probably just stop the spread of cancer cell, but cause another problem elsewhere within the body. Typical drug bs. What's the point of claiming it's a cure for cancer when you'll have lung failure from a disgusting chemical compound that attaches itself into your DNA. Literally, who the hell wants a nasty compound attaching to your DNA? Seriously folks. The actual cure to cancer is f'ing changing your life and stop eating like s#$%. But obviously, people have no motivation to stop what they're doing and keep living how the hell they want.

Like, I think Lulu actually would've been the best ban for them for FW vs TSM. It would've forced 2 things, FW either ban Janna and give TSM Rakan and have to go down a tier in supports or FW don't and just hand over Janna.

It would've forced 2 things, FW either ban Janna and give TSM Rakan and have to go down a tier in supports or FW don't and just hand over Janna. I think Parth is side gambling off of TSM lost for big bucks. Therefore, like every other Worlds since 2013, he drafts poorly.
: first trick in highschool chemistry that my chem teacher always said was when in doubt, convert to mols so you would take the initial masses and use the unit conversion method which is the first thing they give you homework for in chem to get the amount of menthol you have in mols then do the same for carbon dioxide and water based on the periodic table and the knowledge that water is h2o and carbon dioxide is CO2 (literally their periodic table mass=amount of mol) Then you'd have an equation which is like menthol+oxygen->carbon dioxide+water which the same as MENTHOL+O2->CO2+H2O. we don't know what menthol's components are (which is why I wrote MENTHOL). that's because that's the damn answer we're trying to find out. we find that and that's literally what you put into the answer box. Oxygen became written as O2 because of diatomic rule. I forget what the list is but it's a thing you just gotta remember for the test cause the teacher's want you to remember the actual list and not rely on cheat sheets (it probably becomes valuable in actual chemistry jobs and makes you look smart to your colleagues/professors in university). Except my teacher's gave us cheat sheets for the diatomic list on the exams/tests and for some reason told us we wouldn't have them for the exam and tests so Iunno maybe teacher's are nicer in canada. since you have the mols for CO2 and H2O you can figure out how much carbon, oxygen and hydrogen you have on the other side, since matter cannot be destroyed or created just mixed around (that's like the first chapter of the first year of chemistry class) so you just balance the Carbon, hydrogen and oxygen in MENTHOL until it fits the carbon and hydrogen on both sides. oxygen you don't need to care about too much because you get extra on the left side. I forget what the difference between empirical and molecular formula's are. I think the answer you get will probably be some big number that you can divide by a common factor (like dividing everything by 2) to reduce it, and the smaller reduced version is the empirical one. The molecular one is the one that was actually used in the equation you used. I didn't do any of the numbers because I'm lazy to get a pencil and paper and calculator to do this but these would be the steps I would take.

That's a rough sketch of how you would approach this problem, and I like it. You're actually close to actually figuring out the problem.
: .006 mol of Menthol. Produces .006 mol of water, or .012 mol of hydrogen. Produces .006 mol of CO2, which means .006 mol of C. H = 2C .006 mol of C weighs ~72 mg .012 mol of H weighs ~12 mg which means the remaining 11.6mg is oxygen from the menthol specifically Which means .00073 mol of oxygen. By weight it's 12% oxygen About 13% Hydrogen And 75% Carbon. The atomic ratios are 16:8:1 Hydrogen : Carbon : Oxygen With the molar mass in mind, if it's 12% oxygen by weight, then there is exactly 1 mol of Oxygen meaning it has 1 O atom. By that logic, there are the same ratios, 16 Hydrogens, 8 Carbons....I think. C8H16O I could be off now that I look at it...but I used a lot of rough numbers...so yeah. The molar mass is off by...about 28, so I'll add another carbon and oxygen for C9 H16 O2 Well, Google says I'm not super far off, it's C10 H20 O

But percent yield can't be solved for unless you know the actual mass of each element within the sample. But you're on the right track. _There's 95.6 mg of C, H, O that is burned in oxygen. We can start by first writing down the chemical equation._ **C H O + O2 -> CO2 + H2O** _With the information we have, we know that:_ **C, H, O = 95.6 mg** is used or burned up. **CO2 = 269 mg** is produced. **H2O = 110 mg** is produced. **O2 = ??** (Not given.) The question ask us to figure out the empirical formula for C, H, O and its molecular formula. To figure this out, we must first find the mass of each element of C, H, and O. Which we already have because it was given, then use that mass to find its mol. With that information, it should really kick start or give you an idea on where to start next.
