: Rune Pages and Champion upgrades cost too much... and orange essence
would appreciate if Riot would respond to why champion upgrades cost so much is it so people buy those experience boosters?

: Yes actually. Balancing around people who actually put effort into the game is the correct thing to do. Balance around people who stick their thumb up their ass while playing just ruins the game.
so you're saying everyone who doesn't have a high elo or doesn't play ranked is both stupid and horrible at the game? "not everyone" that's what you implied, that or a majority which is still just as degrading and rude to most people "yes" in that case you are truly a horrible person and are not worth the time to respond to Edit for your response: Or what it really was, another insult to low elo players calling them stupid.
Rioter Comments
Durzaka (NA)
: He does not have sub-40 win rate. He has 48% win rate in plat+ right now. Not great, but by no means shit. Meanwhile, Graves, Fiddle, and Gragas are chilling at 44% win rate.
oh so balance a game around the very most try hard "pro" scum who think theyre better than everyone else because they win a lot of video gameS?
: The bottomline of this is that Riot needs to take a good look at the power discrepancy between the melee and ranged champions with ranged champions being always in favor no matter what happens. I wish Riot would actually do something to help out all the bruisers, and that includes people like Yi & Yasuo.

: New Reworked Swain Looks Terrifying - Swain Champion Update
Swain Ryze Taric Galio Aatrox Ryze Poppy Sion Evelynn all reworked before Nunu... Swain Galio Aatrox and Evelynn didn't even need reworks
: I Would Like To Call Bullshit On Blue Essence Gained Per Level-Up Being "Faster Than The Old System"
also, vvvvv experience required increases per level, but do you get more xp? if so why does the experience required increase? meaning blue essence slowly gets harder to get the more you play MEANING THE MORE DEDICATED YOU ARE TO THE GAME THE MORE IT PUNISHES YOU?!!? also you don't get more orange essence either it feels impossible to earn now . - . like 364 orange essence for a legendary skin ....
: Wasn’t saying Galio was deep. I was saying this is a situation where many people are gonna disagree on his new character.
I would hope so, they butchered him his ult was fun as well :c
: His main point isn't that Shaco's kit is dated. His main point is that Shaco is a good candidate to get an *adaptive* change first!
I'm talking about how he doesn't need a rework .... its a comment on Riot not the thread

yes, because Galio has been destroyed this thread will forever remain important so we can remember the real Galio
: > One of the memories he clung to was teaching his son to use a bow. Memories of his family. This was not canon, there is no reference to his son and teaching him how to use a bow in the 1st iteration or when the the league was a thing. This is the issue with Fanon vs. Canon. While I love that people can make their own relationships and connections to the champions, they can make false and untrue statements and believe them to be fact. The "duty over family" thing is a great trope and while it will be missed, it was very straightforward and even tho it could have been expanded on, this new story allows for so much more. Most of the paths have been set up already; the female darkin, the fiery red-headed woman in gold armour, the family of Val and, Darkin in Shurima. Not to mention this story finally allows LGBTQ+ players to finally feel as though they have some form of real representation (without having to be stereotypical (AoTFA Taric) or fanon). You may not agree with the last one but it is important and players want to be represented. This is a Galio situation. Riot has taken the basic and most primal traits of Varus's old outdated lore and has transformed it into something that I would argue, is deep and gives the physical body of "Varus" more character (literally). The only thing I wish would have happened is more info on Kai and Val before they jumped right into it.
Galio isn't deep :/ and if he was, no one would care for the reason that: in game he makes comments that Garen would make "I love Demacia, its the only place I've been" "I came here to chew bubble gum and kick butt" (even Garen wouldn't say something this stupid) "I fought a building once, I'm pretty sure I won" its just so cliché and stupid ( anyone who plays new Galio even once wont associate him with being "deep" ) old Galio was charming and more inspirational, especially with the much better voice acting (idc if the same person did it or not, this is a serious step back) with quotes like "It's like killing two stones with one bird" "take flight" Demacia champs aren't supposed to be "deep, philosophical" bs spouting teenagers who think theyre being deep they're champions with easy to understand light hearted standards {{champion:102}} for the most part Lux is cheerful Garen is brave and has a sense of justice Galio was gloomy, yet charming (was) reminds me of Man of Steel, that garbage movie that tried to change something so simple and failed horribly

Voidac (NA)
: New Lore for Varus... what an incredible letdown.
How the conversation probably went at Riot HQ: "ya know, we aren't forceful enough with how political correct we are" "yeah, we need to show how politically correct we are" "I HAVE AN IDEA" "yes moneylover#127?" "no one cares about Varus' lore, lets make him gay!" *everyone claps* "but cant we just make a new cham-" "SHUT IT, THIS IDEA IS BRILLIANT!" "screw old champs no one cares about, EVERYTHING MUST BE UPDATED AND CHANGED" "FOR THE GREATER GOOD" "the greater good!"
: Adaptive Champions, and Why Shaco Should be the First.
Shaco doenst need a rework... he's fun as is how is his kit dated at all? oh I know, next they'll rework Nasus, Teemo, Garen, Annie, Amumu, Udyr, and maybe even Malphite their kits are so dated right? theyre not flashy enough so they need a rework!
: about Orange Essence...
Just got a Legendary Skin Shard ya know, the ones that cost like 1820 rp andddd it sells for 364 orange essence... oh no, not rp, orange essence the stuff that's worth about half what rp is . - . no offense but, it feels impossible to earn orange essence

: Please upvote this thread to raise awareness of Top Laner Syndrome.
"its ok to farm under tower and wait for ganks" not when the top laner pokes you down while youre trying to farm underneath tower and then suddenly him and his jg tower dive tower shoots one who first attacked you and he tanks a few hits then leaves, while the yi just shreds you, and is about to die from the last turret hit when he pops his heal and takes 50% reduced damage no, seriously, towers feel nearly useless especially late game where they get killed in less than a few seconds

broken champs, they don't really have an ap one unless you count akali :P
: He's right. I wan't a champion to die in the lore, just to show that the world actually changes. Closest thing we got was GP's story. Right now every story feels like there is no RISK for the champions because they can't die.

Rioter Comments
: Uum they now have mordekaiser as a warlord of a ghost army hellbent on taking over runeterra to try and retake is Immortal Bastion which is where noxus is now located and has wiped entire towns out of existence in bilgewater and sunk a town as well. Ironically lore wise if the black mist didn't sink a noxian war fleet estimated at over 30 ships ( read harrowing wiki) noxus probably would've taken over Ionia.
my goodness -_- champion lore will not change unless they rework the champion Mordekaiser's lore was not changed in the process so it was of no significance these are simply events that don't affect the big picture for instance Noxus is trying to take of the world blah blah blah, but they cant because that would change the big picture Noxus sends 30 ships and they all sink = Noxus doesn't take over the world it doesn't change the big picture nothing that will change the big picture will ever occur because that means there has to eventually be an end game to it all and Riot wants a game that lasts forever, so tons of things that change nothing will happen just like the walking dead drag it out, no ending to the story just event, after event, after event
Necrozard (EUW)
: Prediction about the incoming massive event (spoiler ?)
problem with lore in this game is you cant have it officially go anywhere massive because it would change the champions lore in that way, nothing of any real importance will happen

aw shoot I cant call people potatoes? guess that leaves me onions, carrots, apples, broccoli, corn, peas, squash, watermelon, pumpkin, lettuce, asparagus, beans- and yeah Riot shouldn't ban someone just for calling someone potatoes I imagine there was more to it, but if not, that's beyond stupid
: Being strong early game doesn't mean you outdamage bad early game champions.
one problem you're saying you can roam as a mid laner which is completely false as no one ever actually does that when theyre on my team :D
: It's amazing how I gotta work hard to do dmg, then I see ADC's right click for 600 crit.
Rioter Comments
: Riot has previously tried experiments in letting permanently banned players recover their accounts. The success rate, even even among players specifically hand chosen, was abysmally low. As such, permanently banned players no longer are provided options to recover their accounts. This is not a policy I think Riot will consider, because the price you pay for unbanning players is introducing a lot more toxicity back into the game queue.
they need to make it more precise with bans, so the perma bans are a last resort if a player doesn't change even though its hard to get banned if you don't break rules, if it's a bot that checks reports theres guaranteed to be some mistakes a major one would be players lagging out or their computer / internet crashing

Yes under extreme circumstance the only warning given is a 2-week ban but technically that is still a warning. Could Riot do better in the warning aspect? Sure, but they do currently give out warnings before banning. 2) How do you track for the difference between someone leaving/dcing accidentally or purposefully? Either way though if people are frequently having connection problems and it's not on Riot's end (and usually it isn't) then it's on that persons job to make sure they have a stable connection. If they don't or won't then why should they be allowed to play and risk putting their team at a one-man disadvantage?
because its just a video game and if it isn't even ranked then it literally changes nothing of "major concern" losing a video game isn't the end of the world and someone shouldn't be banned just because they cant afford the best computer or internet
: Should Riot Unbann Peoples Accounts After Season As Over?
pretty sure it would be too hard to make this work properly for Riot to care about what would be more effective is make sure you ban the person for a good enough reason, and warn them very properly first I definitely think people should not be banned if they disconnect from a game without it being clearly obvious they quit out of spite or to be negative as some people may literally be being forced to leave or their power / internet might be going out
: Leveling feels bad, losing feels worse then ever, and you never expect anything from the capsules
why does leveling up have to be connected to blue essence, and champions, I thought it would be connected to slowly earning orange essence or rare chances of drops or something I guess it only gives you blue essence for playing. . . which means it gives you ip? . . .the same thing the old system did also, do new players start below level 30? meaning they get 30 capsules by the time they reach 30, meaning the players who were already maxed out missed out on 30 capsules in a way?

: The idea is that new players still need champions, rune pages, etc., and thus still have a use for their BE. But if you have been playing for years and own every champion and still have 150k BE with nothing to spend it on, the BE store provides a way for you to convert your excess resources into something you can actually use.

But if you have been playing for years and own every champion and still have 150k BE with nothing to spend it on, the BE store provides a way for you to convert your excess resources into something you can actually use. yeah but.... 150k for just one skin? that's kinda like a rich person pouring money into something they don't need just because they have so much 50k for a skin with 3 different skins would have been much more reasonable
: Yeah, 100%. I just can't imagine it bothering me that I didn't have that skin. As you pointed out in your edit, it's pretty expensive, in reality. I think it's cool that they reward the players that really love the game. That's a good thing.
yeah, but to that extent? like the best they can do for a player that's been playing that long is a single skin ? like . . . . . 6+ years for a skin? I'd say that's almost more of a rip off than the 5$ emotes
