: Don’t know where you got it from, but Overwolf has never caused permanent bans to League of Legends players. The purpose of Overwolf is to provide an overlay in which apps for a variety of games (fortnite, minecraft, overwatch, csgo etch) allow for different things. For example, quarterback and playvig give challenges to complete for currency within their apps, game summary provides clips and summaries of games, and op.gg and u.gg provide overlays of guides and current game data. Basically, Overwolf has always been trusted and there’s never been a reason to ban based off of using an overlay that has zero effect on actual gameplay.

I remember back from season 6 there were several topics on boards about getting a ban by people using Overwolf like [this one on Reddit](https://www.reddit.com/r/Overwolf/comments/5tnwtz/ban_in_the_league_of_legends_for_overwolf/). Cannot find them, though. Meanwhile, I was able to find the [post from Riot representative](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/sJia9ty5-can-riot-give-us-an-official-stance-on-overwolf-in-light-of-the-recent-ban-wave-on-euw?comment=00020000), where they confirm it. However, "Riot does reserve the right to change their stance on this application at any time" still concerns me, but I am very paranoid about security stuff.

: Is Lowering Damage Even Under Consideration?
To be honest, no. And if you must ask why, because "long" queues. Players were complaining about long queues and asked Riot to do something about it. Unfortunately, if there are not enough players to play you cannot magically pop them up. So in order to make queues faster they made matches faster by boosting damage (runes rework one of examples) and you are likely to see players with higher MMR difference than you supposed to in order to fill the missing player. If 5 years ago you could do a comeback now it's nearly impossible, all the objective buffs make it harder. When I started to play a 30 minutes queue was something normal, 15 minutes queue was considered a fast one and matches lasted 45 minutes in average. Now you have 2-3 minutes queues and players still complain about it. In my opinion Riot made several bad choices by artificially shortening queues.
: New loading screen: Honor, mastery, ping missing
Pros: - yet to be found Cons: - loading percentage per player removed (cannot tell who has loading problems anymore) - summoner icon cropped and got smaller (cannot fully show your icon anymore and summoner icons having edges now pointless?) - summoner spells icons got smaller (larger is better and visible)

That must have been on an account under level 30 then. https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/developer-corner/Jh3Mtzu6-board-post-title-blue-essence-earn-rates-learning-the-numbers-with-carl-and-henrietta I was actually mistake, minimum BE amount (after 30) is 810 BE. And nexus blitz gives you less experience than summoner's rift.

Thank you for the link, will check it out. EDIT: There is a flaw in those calculations. In order to get Blue Essence you have to disenchant champion shards. With old system champion shards (and skin shards) dropped from Hextech Chests as additional way obtaining champions. If I remember correctly, there also used to be Mystery Champion Shard for the cost of 1700 IP, which are removed. If you take that into account, then you definitely get less with BE system, than you used to get with IP system.

I forget the exact amount, but average capsule value is somewhere around 960(?), with the larger capsule every 10 levels being worth around 2100 BE. I did prefer the IP system's feel, but BE averages out to a bit higher earnings overall.

Hello, Well, I did some math based on my account and matches. For the next level I need 2784 exp total. Average match awards ~100 exp (based on my match history that didn't bug out and recorded exp I earned), +400 exp from first win of the day. In order to get next level I will have to play ~24 matches (win or loss). As a reward I get 50 BE + capsule with Braum (+1260), Le Blanc (+630) and Singed (+90), assuming I don't need any of the champions. Now in the past each win awarded ~100 IP and a loss ~50 IP (with 50% win rate ~75 per match) +150 IP for first win of the day. With 24 matches you could get ~1950 IP vs 2030 BE. However, I got lucky with Braum and you don't get lucky like that every time. Last time I got, for example, Master Yi (+90), Alistar (+270) and Mordekaiser (+270), which would make only 680 BE. IP income used to be very stable, but BE income is heavy luck based. If I would like to get Braum, he will cost me much less (2520 vs 6300), but again, getting shard you want is heavy luck based. Also, they introduced chests with champion and skin shards when IP still existed, which makes "cheaper champions" not a factor. P.S.: Since I had all the runes I needed back then I will not count them either.
: It also has the option of 35 assists. So it's either you get lucky before like 3 or 4 games, or you get 35 assists. Either way you get the reward. Most of my matches are done within 20 minutes. So I estimate 1hr-1.5hrs to get it (depending on wait times). You can also play regular games and rack up the assist in like two games and great supporting {{sticker:sona-playing}}

Yes, that is correct. URF doesn't count, tested that one.

: Best game you've played in 2018?
If you cut out the "early access" part and count based on release date, then Subnautica. And the best game I have played in 2018 regardless of release date and early access status would be Oxygen Not Included.

Hello, I had ping 195 and after server moved my ping is 139. I live in Latvia, in Europe. If you are from North America and has higher ping than me, it is either your ISP or internet routing fault.
