: LP Gain/Loss affected by AFK players
I've heard people say that if you decrease the amount of lp lost in a game where there was an afk then people would afk more often to abuse it. Simple solultion: Anyone in that afker's party gets double the lp loss while people unrelated to them lose less lp than a normal loss. Simple fix. As for people that leave for life related issues, its a low number of people. They can just grind back up. I've personally had to leave games twice this year because of an important issue coming out of no where and I wouldn't mind losing double lp if it means punishing ragequitters. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}
: FAQ: Eternals
At the very least, bare minimum, make it cost blue essence like the mastery system currently does. This is by far the dumbest purchasable thing I have ever seen in a game. In NO game, free or buy, should accomplishments cost you money. It's part of the game itself, it is not an item or cosmetic. I still think it's dumb that mastery 6 and 7 cost a shard or blue essence, but it's a step up from costing RP.

: s10 jungle encapsulated.
After I got the new missions, I just couldn't pass up the rewards and decided to go ranked a bit. I main jungle and... its just pure suffering. You're at the complete mercy of your laners. I feel like the jungle version of a ward bot. Every lane at every second needs a gank. Even if your on the complete opposite side of the map, the moment an ally pings assistance you're expected to be there immediately. Then they die in the fight and blame you. I see the enemy going bot lane, I ping bot lane warning, the proceed to stay pushed outward, die to the gank, then blame me. Same goes for mid and top. The dragon will be up in 30 seconds, I ping that, then once more at 10 seconds to make sure everyones ready. I have the control wards up, the river is lit up like a christmas tree. Three of the enemies are at dragon, none of the laners budge out of there lanes. I try to steal dragon, which doesn't always work but that was my last option. I failed. I was able to escape but I was still blamed for losing dragon. All three lanes are pushed in, I'm expected to gank their lanes. How do I gank their lane? No one knows. But they want me to. The map is completely dark and I'm expected to roam without getting killed by the enemy jungler or laner. Avoiding enemy laners is easy, but its hard to know where the enemy jungler is, when there is literally no vision on the map. Its still my fault of course for having the audacity to farm or try to gank a lane. It's my fault if I get ambushed despite not being able to see the enemy coming in any way. Its my fault I didn't use my two wards plus the control ward to light up the map single handedly. {{sticker:sg-syndra}}

: I think riot should punish ragequits extremly harshly.
No. The only time you should punish someone for leaving the game is if they admit in chat that they are rage quitting. Over the course of the 2 years I've played league, I've had to leave games personally because of very important issues in my life that I simply cannot ignore for a game. One example: My dog almost died and I had to rush him to the vets. After leaving that game, it would look like I rage quitted, but no, I had a legit issue that I needed to resolve asap.

Kindred's ult can do much worse than that. It's not that it takes more skill, it's that it's wildly less forgiving than virtually any other ability in the game, old champion or otherwise. I'd like to preface that you can help the enemy team by whiffing abilities on any champion: Missing your ult on Cass is a huge benefit to the enemy team because it is now on cd, Morde ulting a 17/2 Vayne and dying is beneficial because he is dead and his ult is down. It may be the only ability that can heal the enemy, but it isn't the only ability that is THAT unforgiving. Taliyah wall can prompt the death of entire teams, dragons, or barons if positioned incorrectly, and might I add it's extremely easy to position incorrectly, Tahm Kench can literally eat his team members which can have devastating effects if executed poorly, and Kalista can drag her support away from the fight at an inopportune time which could result in a loss of the entire fight, Bard is quite literally a free teamwide hourglass every 80 seconds (I think you can see how that may take a twisted turn), so yeah Kindreds ult may be the only ult in the game with the ability to heal the enemy team, but there are other ults that have just as catastrophic of a consequence for failing to execute them correctly.

He's talking about how it can directly positively affect the enemy. I play bard as well and accidentally helping the enemy with that ult is no where near as devastating as accidentally helping the enemy with kindreds ult. Kindreds ult is a zhonyas you can move in and get a heal at the end. It is wildly over powered for the enemy team if used incorrectly. Accidentally using bards ult in a bad situation is many many more times forgiving. I used to play both kindred and bard, I know this from experience, that kindreds ult is not forgiving in any way, shape, or form.

: Question For The "NEVER FF!" Community
Generally I ff when I see the game losing, but there is very rare exceptions where I refuse to surrender even if the game looks to be a loss. Recently I played a game as bard and I had a very good jinx adc. The top laner, urgot, died 5 times to the top enemy, fiora, then disconnected. At first I thought, we should surrender, but my adc was really really good at jinx. Our jungler saw that, warwick, and prioritized our lane for ganks. The akali on our team, to be honest, wasn't very good. I had a lot of faith in the warwick and jinx though so I decided to refuse to ff. I knew that me and jinx could carry the game, with warwick as our "tank". Akali was a little useless but she was useful bait so... What my strategy was is to take akalis kills so I can get full build faster and support jinx and warwick better. We were beasts in the teamfights. It was extremely difficult for any of the enemy team to take us down, despite having a fed fiora. I'd go in, poke the squishies, then run out. If fiora tried to chase us she'd get perma slowed by me and jinx. We rarely killed fiora, but we were very good at protecting ourselves from being killed. (we were even able to get dragons with this technique) The fiora started getting tilted and played worse. The enemy team started trying to split push and thats what won us the game. Since there spawn timers were now out of sync, once we reached the enemies base we could kill them one by one and we won the game. These are the rare exceptions where I'll refuse to surrender even if we are at an extreme disadvantage, because I see a chance at winning and 5/10 I am right. Most of the time though, I surrender because its a waste of time to go through a game thats a definite loss. If I can't put any faith into my teammates, if they can't take objectives, if they do not listen to pings or are constantly flaming in chat instead of playing the game :then I ff. If you can't LOGICALLY REASON a way to win and KNOW that your teammates will cooperate with the reasoning, then don't waste everyones time refusing to surrender. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}

: Measures against very toxic behaviour?
I get a lot of flame for not taking flash. Yet I have a 60% winrate on Ivern in normals. I've recently taken Ivern to ranked and still did very well without flash. I've found a lot of other summoners to be more useful to be than flash, so I do not see the reason I should be forced to take it. I even replaced flash with heal and ended up saving my allies 3-4 times throughout the game, as well as saving myself. I've learned to utilize my Q as a discount flash and use heal not only to save allies, but using a mix of my Q, sheild and heal as an escape. Which has worked countless times. Q is my engage, adding in the sheild burst so the enemy cannot run away, heal for extra sustain, disengage, or hell, sometimes I just use it as a speed boost. I've had so much more use for this summoners than flash. {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}}

This reminds me of black desert online. I've been seeing more and more people defend riot despite their blatant buffs to champion so they can sell their skins. People ignoring bugs and saying they'll fix it at some point, ect. In Black Desert Online, people spending 1,000's to 10,000's of bucks on the game, defend the predatory practices of the games business model. That is P2W or how the whales put it, pay for convenience. The game purposely cripples you in order to coax you to buy there shops items. Even something like swimming, a basic movement in any game with swimming, is practically p2w, because they crippled it so much, it only feels natural with the swim costume (which is 30$). I feel as though this is the route league of legends will go to be honest. Once you see a company go the money route, see people defend it, ect, it all goes down hill from here. The only way to get the company to rethink their choices is to boycott or make an outrage. The first choice, isn't going to work because of whales. The second choice... I've seen people starting to defend riot so... It's only a matter of time before the people who get sick of the game leave and the ones defending it staying, making it seem as though there is no issue with the game, even though there is. Once I see it go downhill, I'll just swap to a different game. To be honest, I still play games like Black Desert Online because the game itself? Fun. Never purchase anything though because I do not support the way they monetize the game. League of legends is a game I used to tell people they should definitely financially support. Now that I'm seeing what there doing... I have a hard time trusting them with my money, or anyone elses money. Just be wise on what company you put your money into.

Same here. I tried going into ranked and what happens in the game? Adc disconnects because I failed a gank (even though I pinged I was coming and neither the adc nor the support followed up with the attack, and I ended up having to leave the lane because I was being overpowered).

If your adc plays really badly or simply doesn't listen to any of your pings, they are not worth your time in the present or future. You're better off getting any other laner fed to carry the game. Even if that adc gets fed, they'll most likely start to get arrogant, die in 1v2+'s, and not follow the team for any objectives. This has happened time and time again in my games, but the moment I abandoned them, my winrate drastically increased. Trust me you're better off ditching them: sincerely a used to be support main.

I love this game but if this continues, then I'm leaving and never coming back. I've noticed that que timers have been longer... its almost like other people feel the same way. Does riot care? No.

You might argue: "But you dont get this bad team every time" But thats ONLY by statistic and in statistic you dont see how one player had 80 good games out of 100 and another one didnt even have 20 carriable teams out of 100 games. Why is this downvoted?

People don't like it when they're not called solo carries. They can't accept the fact that in higher ranks, your ally team starts to matter and they can't solo their way to the top.
: Why do people like this exist...
I had a game recently actually we're my teammates weren't going for objectives at all. The support didn't ward much and everyone from top to bot was feeding. Top was raging in chat about how I wasn't ganking him. Was it wrong to ignore top? Yes, but at the same time, mid and bot were doing so badly, and they are right next to dragons. I wasn't sure what I was supposed to do. Bot kept pushing the enemy next to the tower, then they'd get ganked by the enemy jungler even though I pinged that the enemy jungler was coming. Everytime I'd try to gank mid, instead of waiting for me to get there they'd immediately engage in a fight and die. Whenever I'd gank bot (in the rare occasion that they weren't right next to the enemy tower), the adc was never ready. She'd be farming while me and the support got engaged in a battle that the adc should have prepared for. Nobody pinged when either of there enemy was roaming except for me. And in the chance that I missed someone, people would ping the question mark at ME, despite me being the only one in the ally team who had any map awareness. Yes, I get that I was playing normals. At the same time though, these people? Level 200 plus and all on there main champion. And they were playing as if they've never played league a day in there life. Its frustrating regardless if its ranked or normals.
