: So... no point in playing pbe right now
I'm still not sure why they don't just enable One for All mode when a new champion's on the PBE. That way all 10 players can play the new champion.

Thanks for the heads-up. The early levels feel like even more of a chore than they used to. Probably because I WANT to mess around with the runes, but you can't make your own pages until level 12.

It does do this. It's just that that "certain point" for League is level 150 _(iirc)_, while everyone is currently level 30-32 ish.
: Spent the day watching a friend learn the game....
I'm leveling my own new account, and I'm amazed that Riot somehow managed to make the early levels even duller than they were before. Most of the early level alternate rotation isn't even fun champions.
: I started leveling a new account. Shouldn't I be getting a "First Win" mission?
Level 5 now and still no sign of this mission anywhere. Which sucks because the mission itself probably would've gotten me to level 4 or 5 in one game.

I've had multiple therapists and medications over the years, and none of it has made any difference. What's worse is when I make an idiot out of myself like that, I just end up feeling worse about myself. I have to act out to actually get noticed, though, because otherwise I'm an entirely unremarkable and uninteresting person, who has no actual talents to be noticed by anyone for. I've been with this game since late season 3. Over these years, I've lost a lot of my friends due to my emotions and self-esteem being shot to hell, and what do I have to show for it? Literally nothing. No ranked borders, no prizes, no essence rewards, and now no champions or skins too. I can't even quit this game anymore. All the friends I still have all play it, so it's always going to be on my mind just by my being signed into Discord, unless I literally abandon all my friends.

: So what happens if a new player in the level 5-7 range gets matched versus a level 8+ player in PVP?
Alright, so it just gives you the default rune pages based on the champ you pick. Still seems weird to me that you can't even open the runes tab to see what the default pages have.

The rune tab is greyed out entirely until level 8. Unless it lets you select rune pages in champ select but not read them in the client beforehand (without opening an external webpage), which would be... questionable design. I know early levels don't last long, but it still strikes me as something that could happen. Runes versus no runes is a pretty huge difference in power.

JUST focus on yourself, who cares how good they are? They aren't you. Easier said than done considering I have basically zero self-confidence. My continued inability to match up to anyone I know in any activity has been a thorn in my side for years, and I just keep making it worse for myself by wrecking any progress I make. Like losing my entire champion pool 4 times now. I have a pretty old level 12 account, but any time I try to play a game on it, I just stare at my champ pool and try to resist the urge to facedesk because I just don't want to play any of these. _(Kayle, Yi, Nasus, Sion, Udyr, Warwick, and Xin, most of whom are useless because I hate jungling.)_ I don't like any of the 450 champions, and I've played them enough across 4 accounts to know full and well that I don't like them. I know there's a free rotation, but last time I played a free champion, I got an S+ rank, got mocked by the game for wasting my time doing good on a champion I don't own, and then never got an S rank again when I did eventually buy them.

Jax's Leap Strike is a spell. It can't crit, doesn't apply on-hit effects, and can't life steal. It applies Empower, though, but that's noted on Empower's tooltip _("Jax's next basic attack or Leap Strike...")_.
: RP in exchange for skins when a champ is reworked
Riot used to do this in the past if you asked them for a refund on content that got reworked. Problem was, word got out about it and people began to abuse it whenever something got reworked just to get RP back for content they hardly ever used. I believe they said that requests for refunds went up over 10000% or something once it became common knowledge, basically clogging up the support team with refund requests from people who never even played the champion they wanted refunded anyway. That's why they stopped offering refunds around the time of Karthus's AV update.

His Q and E both have an 80% AP ratio (and that's before accounting for E refreshes), and his R has both a 110% direct AP ratio and an extra 0.5% of target HP per 100 AP on the null zone. Those are already pretty huge ratios for how low his cooldowns can get. Especially since he actually builds full AP now, being a mid laner again.
