: Why are our current rank boarders not showing in the loading screen?
If you're playing normal games, you have to use the ranked armor around your icon to see the border. In ranked, you'll always see it

: >I was banned for being a little tilted in the beginning of a game and saying something vulgar. It wasn't anything too offensive, especially not banworthy. If the people who were offended by what I said didn't like it, they should have just had the chat filter on. I would have been okay with a chat restriction because I never use chat, but I guess those don't exist, and my account was suspended for a few sentences in one game. You don't get gameplay banned for something inoffensive. You said a homophobic or racial slur, made IRL threats, or had previous punishments that you just aren't mentioning. Nobody goes from a clean slate to a 14 day ban. You also missed the point of the punishment. You were toxic and got punished, those people aren't the problem for not having their chat filter on. Take responsibility for your actions. Now, on to the actual post: >League of Legends is probably the best and worst game I have ever played- and it is the worst more often than not. It sounds like you geniunely just don't enjoy your time spent on this game. That's fine, there's nothing wrong with that. If you enjoy playing with friends, limit your time spent playing this game to doing fun things with them. Nexus Blitz, ARAM, hell, even Twisted Treeline is fun when you're just screwing around with friends. If that's what it takes for you to enjoy League, that's totally fine. Plenty of my friends will only play when I'm on. Don't feel obligated to play, though. I'd suggest expanding your horizons when it comes to gaming. There are so many good, cheap games and newer ones that are coming out (Spellbreak comes to mind if you're into Battle Royale games) and they'll cause you way less stress. Slowly pull yourself away from League (go from playing a few games a day to just a few games a week) and try to move towards other genres. Super Smash Bros Ultimate comes out tomorrow if you have a Switch! If a game is contributing to the degradation of your mental health, drop the game. Video games are meant to be fun and relieve stress, don't keep pining over the money you've spent because that's only going to make you feel like you *have* to keep forcing yourself to play. Your health and well being should be your top priority.

Your health and well being should be your top priority. I worded the ban thing poorly. I'm not upset about the ban, I deserved it. I'm upset that I said something that seems nice compared to what I report others for. I just feel angry that when I report others for ridiculous behavior I never get to see that player punished screen. Even if it was only a singular sentence in the first minute of a game, I deserved it.
: Riots false advertisement?
If it's anything like the Worlds event, which it seems to be, the loot should change. The Worlds loot changed three or four times.

: So uhhh, anyone else think the victor nerf is a little out of touch..? I think a better nerf would have been to the Q shield but maybe damage nerfs are fine
It's to avoid viktor being too strong in the toplane. It still allows for AP viktor to be strong, and gives tank viktor top less strength, even though this won't stop viktor top from destroying games at all

: I thought one of Riot's core game philosophies was choice: the opportunity for players to customize and choose how they want to play the game. This Pyke change is completely contradictory to that goal; I can't believe this went through. This change is enforcing lethality Pyke (in which there are literally only 3 items for him to choose) while hard nerfing all other options. Riot is basically saying: "We want you to **ONLY** play Pyke as a lethality assassin and any other variations will be voided by this nerf." They put lethality scaling on 3 abilities. Why? Why would you have to deviate Pyke from normal champions by making his scalings based off lethality? I understand Riot's goal of trying to keep Pyke away from the Tank build, but if you wanted him to be played as an assassin with risk, why wouldn't you just increase the AD scalings and lower the bases as an incentive for damage builds. This would make it so he's still dependent on damage, but isn't reliant on lethality. You can just as easily make phantom undertow's stun and ghostwater dive mms scale based off AD. Lethality is such a BAD stat for Pyke as a support. The stat is literally **level** scaling armor pen. LEVEL. The support role is almost always the lowest level in the game. People didn't like going lethality on Pyke because it is by its nature one of the worst stats for the support position. This change removes the distinction of Pyke as an assassin support. He'll likely just be played in other roles or not at all. As a support, he'll only be feast or famine. This makes me really sad as both a Pyke main and a player. The champion that I found to be interesting and very rewarding to play, albeit he was overpowered and did deserve nerfs of some kind, is now gutted in his distinct role. What's even worse is that this gives me even more distrust of the balance team since they are willing to force players to abide by how they want the game to be played. What if we see mages that are forced to build magic pen or marksmen be forced to build only attack speed. I really want to love this game since I've played it for so long and have met so many friends through it, but this is seriously a heart dropper.
I also play Pyke quite frequently, and while I am not particularly high ranked, I don't see any issue with the changes. If anything, it's a buff to me. I used to play Pyke top, building tank and could successfully carry any game with ease. With the current changes, I've been playing support and jungle and successfully getting 15+ kills every single game and nearly carrying a game alone as a support.
: So, Riot, when in the hell is {{champion:84}} 's shroud not going to let her tower dive you and not have her take any tower hits. Towers LITERALLY give TRUE sight and you cant even see her in her shroud. It's like the old Rengar Ult where he was invisible right next to you and all you had was a exclamation point. Really shitty and not much counterplay unless you enjoy completely zoning yourself every 15 seconds.
Akali has her own weaknesses, and getting rid of that would hit her too hard. She already suffers late game, and will be a worthless champion if nerfed too hard.

: Can we get an option to trade Skin Shards with friends?
I like this idea a lot, but sadly Riot has bigger issues Lower elo games are currently hell to play in ranked, and the meta is changing so rapidly you'll get more trolls than if riot was birthed under a bridge.

: I need help with ranked!
My average KDA is below average because I only get support. I'm not good at support. I play top lane, and I hardly ever get it (I pick Top and Mid as roles, but mostly get support or something else)
