: new ward mechanic (vision trap)
It's a neat idea, guessing the trap would be visible, might work better as a champion ability rather than something anyone can use though.
: i keep getting gold the first few rounds while my teammates get items?
Yeah there should probably be some more weighted RNG to prevent this from happening, I've had several games where I get gold from all 3 minion rounds and then from the Krug round as well, so I end up with only a single completed item and usually not even a good one. It makes the game a lot harder when that happens since items play such a huge role in what team comps you can reasonably run and can be the difference between a character being mediocre and a viable carry.
: Right now, this is still unclear. There is certainly no commonly accepted language across ALL regions of Runeterra, let alone sign language. We default to writing everything in English, even though there's probably a remarkably varied spread of languages being spoken across various stories and such. It depends on the POV of the narration, really. A TV show which handles this really well is 'Vikings'. Even though the whole production defaults to modern English (with some accents!) you can assume when the Viking characters are speaking to each other, it's meant to be in an old Nordic language. When English characters are speaking to each other, it's in one of the old English dialects... and the French guys, and so on. BUUUUUT when they try to speak to each other, the language barrier slams down HARD, and the scene is presented from the POV of whichever characters we're following at the time - some of them speak several languages, which means they can move in and out of conversations. If we're making Runeterra a more authentic and realistic place to tell stories and play games, a major thing to consider is how the people in that world communicate. I am from the UK, and I can speak a little bit of French and German... because geographically they are pretty close by. But I can't speak Italian, Spanish, Hungarian, Polish, etc etc. I am utterly clueless with Korean, Mandarin, Japanese, etc etc. Soooooo... can someone from Ionia like Sona understand whatever language they use in Demacia? Probably, because she lives there. But can she understand someone from Shurima, or Targon, or Ixtal, or even the Freljord? That's unclear. Also, can someone from modern Shurima understand the ancient languages of their homeland? All good fodder for future storytelling! :-)

All good fodder for future storytelling! :-) In instances where a character seems easily able to communicate with other factions, Taliyah for example is able to understand Noxians as well as Yasuo; and Ezreal apparently travels to quite a few places, are these characters assumed to be multilingual? Also is there any idea on how some of the in game languages would relate to each other? Like how IRL French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Romanian derive from Latin, while conversely, Korean is considered a language isolate. One thing that's kind of neat with IRL languages is something called minimal pairs, which can make learning certain languages trickier depending on which one you're starting with, like how "lock" and "rock" are easily recognized as different by someone who speaks English, they sound the same to someone who's native language lacks one of those consonant sounds, Japanese for example has no R sound so it's much harder to distinguish which one someone is saying, or going from English to Polish, trying to distinguish "S" sounds from "Z" sounds is something I'm finding very difficult as an English speaker.
Rioter Comments
: First Carousel should be a little longer. AND PREMADE TEAMS SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO PLOT TOGETHER
lost count of how many times I've been a mm from the champ I wanted and the carousel ends so I get stuck with like chainvest nid or something
iiGazeii (NA)
: Should Qiyana max E first?
I think it's likely going to be matchup dependent.
: A new tank item.
Riot has said in the past that they wouldn't put health, armor and MR all on the same item, makes it a must buy in any situation so it kills build diversity. The passive on this is also a far better version of the active already on {{item:3193}} , so it would absolutely get abused by bruisers and fighters if it was in the game.
: i rerolled for him, and cait prestige.
And you got them? I've gotten the Quiana skin twice instead. Guess that answers whether it's intended, next question is why is it not working for me. Might restart and then try.
Rioter Comments
: Malphite should get oneshot if he ults into a windwall
I'm fine with it as long as it's only on allied windwalls
: Why a minor rune is allowed to be stronger than a Keystone?
Ravenous works on minions, keystones don't, so you're going to be getting healing from it more often, which is why the end game healing will usually be higher. Keystones are pretty much always going to be more helpful in a fight.
: For the love of God Riot, please just revert this Ryze rework.
Just give it a week and he'll have another shiny new rework
: Morde is awesome, and was not transformed into another Riven?
You mean you checked with both the other people who played pre-rework Aatrox, and neither one of them liked the rework?
Clefa (NA)
: Name reported?
Maybe it means something offensive in another language or something
: When you get caught out and your team starts ping spamming you
The day they added ping muting was a good day
: Getting raged at for uncommon Champion selections/builds?
haven't actually had this happen too often for whatever reason, even though I tend to play some weird stuff at times had one incident before the role queue where I called top and locked in Quinn but then the last pick said I should go ADC and then locked in Garen, I told him to have fun as Garen ADC because I called top and that was where I was going. He dodged Also played nothing but Sona mid for a month in ranked one season, only had one team mate try to ask people to report me after the game. Someone on the enemy team told him to shut up and not try to report the person who just carried him. I think I've actually had more people rage at me for actual legit builds that they for whatever reason thought were troll. I usually just mute them and move on, no point in arguing and if I can get a decent lead in the game then they tend to settle down anyway, so it's way better to focus on that.
: Why not duo top?
Going duo top removes a lot of pressure from the rest of the map, mid and bot can play as aggro as they want without worrying about ganks because they pretty much always know where the enemy team is, it also means the enemy top will get full xp while your top lane will be sharing, so as long as they can stay in xp range and especially if they can still get some CS they'll be able to keep up, tanks especially should be able to do this. It also leaves your entire jungle up for the enemy team to farm, so you end up with the enemy mid getting 2x as many blue buffs as normal and 2x the uptime on red for their jungler. You also give the enemy team free dragons since they will have a numbers advantage and TP can't always be up, and unless one of you takes smite you will have issues securing other objectives as well.

I mean if my adc and top both have 40ish CS at 20 mins I'm going to light up the kingsford.
I mean more to the effect of not typing to them because why would you type to a bot, or expect anything from them other than being mostly free food for the enemy. Pretend it's a single player game, you need to be the carry and if you're not winning then you need to figure out what you can do to change that, I won a game once with a 0/14/1 Kled support who didn't buy a gold item and a 1/8 first time Yorick jungle, never would have happened if I focused on what the team was doing instead of what I could do.
: Veigar. VEIGAR.
You should have seen the old Veigar, E had no windup animation and his ult scaled off your AP as well as his, Q was a point and click. The current Veigar isn't nearly as bad.
: It happened
just pretend everyone on your team is a bot, that's what I do, mute if needed
: Oh, why is that??? Momo literally means peach in Japanese and well, Taliyah's colors are very peachy, made sense to me
You could use the deer from her Freljord skin splash art as the pet
: Heimerdinger is all about the turrets and even has quotes like STOP THAT WILL DAMAGE MY TURRETS
: Please buff Nashor's Tooth, or On-hit items in general!
Azir soldiers don't apply on hit effects, and tbh we're all better off without Teemo being viable in more lanes Kayle uses on hit AP items pretty well and might be even better after her rework goes live AP on hit is really just a space that Riot hasn't explored too thoroughly yet, maybe some future champions will be able to fill the niche in interesting ways Also give AP on hit Varus a try, it super fun
: What are minions
I think the game itself is supposed to basically be non-canonical now, so minions aren't really reflections of anything in the lore
: Is there any reason why every new champion from Riot is so unbalanced?
It can be hard to tell before release what the impact of a new champion will be, even PBE testing doesn't really give a clear idea since the player base is much smaller, making games much more varied in terms of player skill, and people will not have had time to learn the champion from either perspective(playing as, playing vs.) This can persist for some time after release as well, when Fiora was first reworked I was able to do quite well with her, but most of this was due to the players I was facing being unfamiliar with how she worked, she was actually seen as a bit underwhelming upon release and was buffed in the following patch, but by then players had adapted to playing vs her.
: I received a 14 day suspension when I never even cursed?...
As far as I'm aware most punishments are not the result of a single game unless there is something that stands out as particularly offensive. The fact that several people have requested chat logs and you still haven't posted them gives the impression that there were some further comments on your side that would have contributed. From the screenshot you posted there is nothing from the support person stating that you should "post on the boards to draw awareness" and the claim that they agree with you about the ban being unjustified doesn't seem to be the case either, since the line you are referring to does not say that the punishment "should" have been less severe, but that it would have if you didn't have the prior offenses.
: Why is this guy still getting banned....
People just don't want to fight him, win rate doesn't really change that, old Darius was like the top "win lane lose game" champion back in the day but I would still ban him because it was all I kept seeing while trying to learn top lane, of course then I just wound up vs Teemo so it wasn't much better Also banned Soraka for a while not because she was OP but because she was annoying

: Buff Azir
I think they consider Azir in the same category as Ryze, where they are super careful about buffs because it's way too easy to break him for high Elo and pro play

Ilovemobas (EUNE)
: Who is your favourite non-meta champion
Previously {{champion:37}} but she's no longer off meta getting into playing jungle now though and {{champion:32}} still feels good to play.
: @Riot, since last patch was 100% buffs to champions, can we get a 100% nerf patch?
: Stop giving me all these key fragments I can't use
: If it makes you feel better, awhile ago I won lane against a Darius pretty hard, got a few solo kills on him and his team was even laughing about it. I took {{champion:16}} (I also got the first tower in top lane)
I did the same thing vs a Jax as Soraka. I also spent a few months one season playing nothing but Sona mid in ranked and managed to bring my winrate on her up to close to 70%

Nope, it gives you a "nothing to steal" message, similar thing happens if he ults a champ that hasn't hit 6 yet, it says "champion not ready"
: Oh okay! Thank for you the detailed explanation and suggestions. So, that is why {{champion:21}} run towards the enemy while they are out of range... that also explains why my Q randomly fires after I click away from the enemy but then they jump on me. It also explains why sometimes my Q doesn't fire after I click on R on Miss Fortune. Do auto attacks override these queued spells or no? Also, one final question (I believe I know the answer), but quick cast is the act of just clicking (for example) Q and the ability just fires without an indicator. Is that correct? How would I go about enabling quick cast? I think that would be beneficial to use on {{champion:21}}. (mainly talking about MF because she is literally my main character. As is Lux.
yes, an auto attack would cancel any spells that were queued up as long as it is input before the ability starts or it is an ability that can be interrupted with an auto attack. {{item:3152}} might be worth mentioning that you cannot buffer anything after this items active, like if you cast {{champion:1}} ult out of range and then flash into range the ability will go off on its own, but if you use protobelt to get in range it doesn't cast whether you press R and then protobelt or press R when the protobelt active is happening. I think Riot did this on purpose because they intended the item as a defensive tool.

you were warning them about triggering the autoban system and typed something that triggered the autoban system, the robots don't know what the context was they just look for certain words being typed in game, and that was one of them

: Is there any jungler plat+ here for a tip or an advice?
Not plat+ but I can offer a few options for a solution 1. Adapt your own pick to synergize, Soraka does have decent follow up CC with her E, so if you have a CC heavy jungler then it might be enough for your ADC to burn down the enemy, something Like Amumu could work pretty well especially since he deals quite a bit of damage himself in addition to having enough CC to handle the setup. 2. Gank for pressure rather than kills, you don't necessarily need to get a kill or even a summoner spell for a gank to be worthwhile, getting the enemy to back off a bit and granting your laners some space could be enough, depending on the lane. As long as they don't still flame for this it shouldn't really be time wasted. Sometimes all you need to do is poke your head out and spook people. 3. Tell your friend that rather than ganking directly you will try to snowball mid and set up a 4 man gank or maybe even a dive, since it has a higher chance of success. 4. See if your ADC is willing to pick something like Ashe/Varus to give you some engage once they hit 6 or a mage with hard CC to make ganking easier. 5. Play a lane instead when you play with this person, then it's someone elses problem. 6. Try to get them interested in other supports, I used to play mostly Soraka when I first started playing but ended up enjoying most of the other supports that I tried, maybe they just need a little encouragement. 7. Consider just muting them or even not playing with them, if all they do is flame you then is it really worth it?

: a reason for an unreasonable ban( repost in hope to get tantram's attention, main post in GD )
: So, is it entirely passive then? You don't need to set up any special button prompts? Is this like {{champion:21}} Q - R combo sort of thing?
The only thing you might want to do for best results is enable quick cast, other than that it's as simple as pushing the button for one ability while another is still casting, it doesn't work with every ability though, so you might want to try it out in the practice tool with the champs you play before using it in game. You can't queue things with channeled abilities for example, like if you cast {{champion:133}} R and then tried to use Q it would cancel the R instead of waiting for the R to finish channeling and then casting Q, I'm not actually familiar with a Q+R combo on MF so I can't really say if it uses buffering or not. There are a few different ways that abilities can interact Ahri can use buffering by pressing E and then immediately flashing, the E will start at Ahri's new location after the flash and still go towards where your cursor was before the flash You can flash during Ezreal R and the R will leave from Ezreals original position before he flashed, instead of following him If you cast W during Fiora's Q animation the W will actually go off during the Q, and doesn't need to wait for the Q to finish casting(this can help you go through a veigar cage and not get stunned btw) Another way you can use this is with abilities that need a target, if you are out of range to use an ability and you try to use the ability on an enemy it will attempt to put you in range to use the ability, like if you were playing Vayne and you thought a champion was going to flash on you, you could press E while they are still out of range and the ability will apply as soon as they get in range, this will cause you to walk towards them in an attempt to put you in range, but you can cancel it by just moving somewhere else.

: You dirty devil you.

: What is Buffering?
It's when you issue a command for one action while another is still in progress, for example, Alistar can buffer his combo by using pulverize during the animation for headbutt and pulverize will activate once headbutt completes. It can also refer to using an ability to mitigate the effects of CC, like if a Nautilus is about to be hit by a morgana Q he can cast his own Q before it hits and if timed right he will still be drag himself towards whatever the Q hits.

this is some crazy stuff, you would think they could look at the location for the last login and determine if it was you who accessed the account or not that way, as far as you being responsible for the security of your account that seems like quite an odd response given how often accounts can be compromised. If anything it would help if Riot could implement a system like steam where logging in from an unfamiliar location prompts you to enter a key that was emailed to you, especially now that email verification is something that's required.
