: TFT: Does RNG really suck that bad and will it ever get fixed?
You just lack skill.. Seriously, rng in this game sucks so hard.. Unless you have a horseshoe shoved up your butt (board wouldn't let me make my butt symbol :( ) it can suck hard.. Last night faced more folks who had 3 star units on the board at 2-2.. Seen games where folks finish w/ 5 3 star's when every other player may be lucky enough to have 1 most only have 2 stars.. Regardless of knowing what others are building, it all comes down to rng. One night I was the first to have a 2 star olaf, cool.. Didn't see another olaf after that and what do ya know, some guy pops off a 3 star olaf after I had my 2 star. Sometimes you can blow 50gold re rolling (not wise) and not see 1 unit you want. Some other guy will get 3 ashe on the same selection. It's like the game tries to tell you sometimes you HAVE to build this. That's how I tried out ashe. Wanted something else, nope, game had 2 ashe in one roll.. rr fighting it, ok 2 ashe again.. I'll buy her.. next roll another 2 ashe. Same has happened to me w/ twitch/singed.. Like, ok, I guess I'm gonna try to build this crap. Even more laughable when the game gives you 3+ champs on the same roll. Like ok, I guess I'll build x because right here is my 2 star in one selection.

: Can someone explain what makes the highlighted team so strong?
What items? That is also huge.. If zyra is a mage w/ morello, and or spear, you are dealing w/ a ton of plants esp on a double cast chance. Some 3 star units are pretty strong. Diana/zyra/vlad are in that group. I didn't even notice ocean at first for the mana regen which is another huge factor.. Unless you have a champ that can inflict grievous wounds on vlad he's gonna be popping off like nuts and he alone will need an army to take down. Vayne, even w/ items, is one of the worst 3 star champs.
: But Zed and Singed are 5 cost. Harder to snag, harder to upgrade. Besides, that just isn't true. I've seen permafrost Olaf shred all of those.
True, if you get olaf w/ all glacials, it can be bad.. Glacial freeze nerfed but rng is still rng. Been permafrozen by an {{champion:81}} with only one other glacial on the board (2 bonus). Now the {{item:3026}} {{item:3107}} nerf will probably impact the zed big also. The folks who had a 2 star zed seemed to always run the combo so you would kill him or his shadow and he would revive at full health.. Was tough having to kill him 4x lol. I've built a 2 star singed many times.. Zed, seems much rarer. Maybe more folks building him but even games I have seen no one building zed, he seems to pop up way less than singed. I guess, that's rng, I mean skill for ya..
: The soft reset of MMR and hard reset of ranked makes no sense. I don't want to face plat players to get out of iron.
Wait a couple weeks to ranked and it shouldn't be an issue.. Then again, even last season when I was in iron, I was still facing plenty of golds (normally 3-4 per game, a plat from time to time, maybe an iron or bronze.). Really thought being iron, I should be facing mostly irons, maybe a couple bronze/silvers.. Nope, not the case at all..
: I dont really think hes overpowered, but ONLY because there are so many other game breakingly overpowered things going on in this itteration of TFT. Like i consider Kindred, Zed, and Singed to be just as dumb as Olaf. Mage spatula Summoners are pretty ridiculous as well.
Zed w/ items is a lot stronger than olaf imo... Mage spat summoners are bad like u said. Poison w/ singed is another one!! lol.
: The Bots Have Invaded ARAM
Level up and you won't see bots again. Haven't seen a bot in aram since I leveled up my last account. Only saw them for a handful of games too.. Doesn't last long though. Which was a bit sad because they normally meant an easy chest/s lol.. I continually see bots in bot games.. Regardless of my lvl (still see them regularly on main account bot games, haven't seen an aram bot on main account in years).
Shilde (EUW)
: i had 6 light champions and didn't get the credit... what is this...
Were any of them light due to spat item? Stuff from last patch didn't work unless all 6 units were original units. Can't put a light item on something and make it count..
: Do people actually activate their skin shards for 7 day rentals?
If it's a skin I like, I roll perma.. If it is a meh skin, use it to roll to a perma combining w/ 2 other meh skins.. If they are 1350 or higher I'll melt for the essence..
: I mean, I wouldn't call them completely useless. While the synergy is gone, it is still a stat buff. Sure, a Rabadons would be preferred but the Inferno item is still a double Needlessly Large Rod.
Where do you see it gives a double {{item:1058}} . I thought they said spat items were no longer going to double the initial item stats it was combined with.. I guess next time the dragon trolls me, I'll have to check what it adds before dropping it on a champ. More than likely buy a low cost unit, drop the item on them to see the change and go from there. Would be nice if they had a tool tip "makes champion an inferno +x spell dmg" or whatever.. Would be helpful for noobs like me :)

: fix your troll ass dragons
Ya, by the time you get to dragon/baron etc the team is strong enough where it really isn't challenging. Just sucks the reward has seemed less than useful lately, especially w/ so many more spat items added. Last night I finally got a warmogs, which was at least useful.. First time in quite some time I actually got an item off of drag though. Like you said Will, at least have the system do a check like if drag is gonna have a spat item, berserkers are being built/used on board, here is a BC.
Tolinar (NA)
: Your goal of broader play is an utter failure.
Right now, race to build 2 star olaf/berserkers.. Not a whole lot of strat there. No shock really though.
FireDrizzle (EUNE)
: Posion is too strong
Poison, esp w/ singed is completely busted.. Maybe even worse than 2 star olaf w/ rageblade.
: Olaf + Rageblade is unbearably ridiculous.
Only if you get a 2 star olaf.. Currently, rng seems to only bless one person per round w/ a 2 star olaf... lol
Rioter Comments
: Force of Nature should be removed from the final carousels
Oddly enough, in the games I have played, most people who take FoN are some of the last picks. Unless the carousel items are trash.. Most people would pref IE, BT, rageblade etc over an extra champ.. Unless there is that rare situation where you have a high lvl champ just sitting on the bench hoping you get the FoN. I have yet to get a spat item off a dragon that wasn't worthless. At least if they are going to do that, put some check in like if you aren't building mage, you won't get a spat item that makes a person a mage. So many games I want/need/hope for an item just to get {{item:3153}} when I have 0 blade masters, the item to make a champ a mage when I have 0 mages on the team/bench.. Like hooray, I made it to drag for a useless item while the next guy gets {{item:3072}} {{item:3124}} {{item:3031}} etc.. Seriously sucks and is another huge troll rng aspect of this mode.. Shut, show drag/rh etc w a box w/ 3 items in it and let the player pick which one they get before the round starts.. If they are afk, it randoms it.. At least that way, one would have a bit of say in an item that late in game.

This will allow them to ban people who are causing YouTube to lose **contracts** for ads.

: YouTube is planning on banning everyone who uses Adblock software
I'll gladly take the ban. I get ads support them etc, but there needs to be a happy medium in how many ads. Having to watch an ad for every music video is just ridiculous.. I'd allow the ads if they reduced them to a feasible amount. Currently, they are just nuts and I'd sooner not access youtube than be subject to all the ads they try to force on you.
: It's disabled right now.
did they say why? was able to then all of a sudden, nadda haha.. all good though :D not like it's killing me not to access it. curious to see my skin I got from the anniversary ;)
Rioter Comments
: Unfair TFT Beta Pass expectations
I did all the missions and played casually and had np getting the egg, on 3 accounts.... Not sure how this run will go w/ less xp from the orbs, but if anything like the last runs, if you play consistently rewards are all easily attainable.
: SO MANY BOTS IN ARAM
Once you get a few wins/level up, you won't see bots in ARAM. I have low-high lvl accounts and can't remember the last date I saw them. I mean, first aram or two, got bots.. Stomped hard and started getting matched up/against good people and never saw a bot again. Tbh it made me a bit sad how quickly the bots went away.. Enemy team full of bots was a super easy chest/s
: Petition to extend the date earning tokens from the worlds event mission
I haven't spent any tokens yet because of what might get added down the line. They will get spent the a day or two before the event ends. Then I also have max tokens and figure out what I can all get etc. Not sure why folks would blow their load early when there is a chance for something else to be added before the event ends. If I'm not mistaken, last event same thing happened. Stuff got added. Lesson learned, wait til the end next time.. Didn't vote because neither option is viable imo.
: TFT 3 stars
I faced a guy/girl who had 2 3 stars near the end of 2-*.. I was lucky enough to have 2: 2 stars... Most others weren't building what I was, just rng.. Sucks haha.. I have seen 3 2 stars right after creeps where I haven't been lucky enough to get 1 2 star.. It hurts but that's what you get in this rng heavy mode..
: Aram is unplayable
Guessing you are on a low lvl account? I experienced bots for a few games on a new account. Once I got a few wins and stuff, never saw a bot again.. Haven't seen a bot in aram in such a long time.. Seemed like pre-lvl 10 there were some but after that, nadda..
jovack (NA)
: I'm all for playing as little of TFT as possible, however, the "get to 3-6" needs to be done 10 times. and in 5 days... so to not risk missing any quests behind it, of course you'll end up spamming the games anyway, thus making the 3 day orb irrelevant.
I've always skipped the play 10 games and walked away/waited until next round starts..
jovack (NA)
: 3 day Orb reset is a bit excessive
Thank them.. They are trying to make it easier to play way less.. W/ the length of time on the reset, I'll do my quests, get my 5 orbs banked and come back when it's ready to collect. Hope they up the xp though because if it's still the same lousy xp for 3 days wait as 1 day, it will be a big hit to the rewards..
: I mean its not hard to get level 3 units to be honest, I've tried it multiple times and its pretty easy. Now I just shoot for late game comps and try to hit them earlier than everyone else. Seems to be the only reliable way to beat people who can 3 star 3-4 units.
You have better rng than I do. lol
: Rolling for 3-star Units, How do you win against this
All about rng.. Can still blow your load and not get 3 star units... Then need the rng to get the right items for said 3 star units or they are worthless..
: When are PBE changes going live?
i thought next week sometime.. it was definitely posted by riot... check the announcements.
FireDrizzle (EUNE)
: Lost with 6 nobles, 2 dragons, 4 knights

Not really, I build many times 3 stars Shyvana, so why not 3 stars Veigar ? If you succeed 3 stars Veigar game over. Doesn't matter what synergies and the other units you and your opponent have, just give him mana.
RNG/LUCK as most builds in this game... As many times as I have tried, think it happened once.. Then you need double luck to get the items that make him strong/fast casting.. 3 star veigar can still be shut down a bit by say 2 dragons w/ claw. assassin positioned right to jump right on him and 1 shot/kill him (faced someone the other night who had a 2 star veigar and my Rengar 1 shot his ass. Would be just as easy to 1 shot a 3 star veigar.. Blitz positioned right to pull vei and he's dead. Lots of veigar counters like everything else. So many folks complain about xyz champ ruins the game but that is rarely the case, they typically just have no idea how to build/set up/itemize against them.
: I just don't understand why I am getting flamed in URF
Not sure why you would ever go into fights 1v5 knowingly.. Fun mode of not...
evolvox (EUNE)
: For me its unfun when certain champs get played. Yi cant even be targeted because he spams q after q. Or veigar that oneshots everyone.

Yi cant even be targeted because he spams q after q. Or veigar that oneshots everyone. I actually played veigar one game.. The enemy had lux, morg, yi, olaf and blitz.. Morg just permashielded everyone (allowed em to just run through veigars cage) while her and lux continually tossed stuns, yi/olaf were resistant to move change the whole time so e didn't work at all. Veigar w/ no peel against a massive move speed boost yi/olaf doesn't do a whole lot. Was a bad time lol.. Not to mention the morg pools everywhere because of how quickly they came out..
: URF isn't that great
I guess this was riots way of giving us URF but making sure people got sick of it so quickly, they wouldn't lose 1/2 their player base for a time after it went away.. While this URF isn't nearly as fun as the URF I remember, I couldn't stand ARURF because getting stuck w/ xyz champ while the enemy got abc champ just sucked..
: About players on urf
While URF may be frustrating, at least I get to choose the champ I get stomped on.. There are comps champs that are just wrong, but if it gets bothersome enough, I take a break from the mode or play the yi/kayle etc myself.. Think I might actually play yi tonight... Kayle gets my everlasting ban though... haha..
: Hecarim is one of the largest abuse cases of URF mode though. He's not called Helicopter Horse for no reason.
{{champion:10}} {{champion:11}} {{champion:25}} are utter bs in this mode.. lol..

: "We are removing login screen so you can log in faster"
For those of us who have more than one account, this completely sucks.. Before, I could kill the client, open it, type my login info and there was league.. Now, sign out, enter login info and loading................ for a good 10-15+ seconds on a ssd.. Pretty craptastic. Thinking something on their end is screwy because my stripped down, base work pc loads league about as quickly as I can load league at home w/ 32g ram and ssd hard drive...
: The new TFT has one big problem
I have posted this before also.. One (room for 2 actually) slot would help a lot w/ the influx of champs they are releasing. Many games, no matter who is not building said champ, I don't see any of them.. I think this is because there are just too many dang champs. A slot or two would at least help give a better chance to see something through 20 re rolls..
: At what date does the beta pass end?
Guessing one last round of quests and it will be over..
Huiwee (NA)
: veigar is breaking the game
I haven't seen a 2 star veigar 1 shot other 2 stars unless they are squishy. A 3 star veigar is another story but need to be pretty lucky to get that..
: So what's the counter to assassins?
wouldn't hurt to try throwing a couple hextech in there for a chance to disable the items..
Retrauk (NA)
: I ended up getting Dawnbringer Riven as my free legendary, which is a nice skin but... I just don't play Riven at all. BUT, from the other various rewards I got through the event I got a step closer to owning every champion (only 3 unowned now,) I got Corporate Mundo too, and Battlecast Alpha Skarner, and Annieversary obviously. I got a free Little Legend to add to my small collection. I now have enough prestige points to get one of the skins, but I'm saving it for now. All in all this event's been pretty great.

I was sad, but w/ all the free stuff, I won't complain. Have bunny riven and arcade riven also.. Oh well, one more skin for a champ I don't play anymore. Could be a lot worse though, lol.

: Lux, qiyana and complaints.
Totally fun if you manage to get her.. Totally unfun to play against her, haha.. Sort of like a 2 star kayle w/ the right items. It's a blast having kayle perma shielding your team, massive tilt if she is on the enemy team perma shielding.. I imagine you will have to be an insane lvl to even see her. Now, at max lvl you have a 10% (iirc) chance to get a 5 cost.. Lux being 7 will probably be 2% at lvl 8 or 9 so unless things change a lot, most folks will never even see her outside of carousel unless their rng is good.
: You already know. Some skin for a champion you probably don't even play that was in every LCS game, a border and a ward. Do they still do jackets for challengers?
I thought the jackets stopped a year or two ago due to issues.. I'm not challenger so not sure though..
: i hate this gamemode so much. rng is cancerous for me.
Void2258 (NA)
: Randomness is too big a factor
Update, last night I was playing a match and decided to try for a {{champion:236}} . Finally got a 2 star built at raptors.. Before that, I was trying to econ and stuff but anytime I would rr/go to a new round w/ a new champ pool to choose from, I wasn't seeing him appear at all.. Clicked through the other 7 people playing to see if a bunch of folks were building him thus the reason why I wasn't seeing him. I was literally the only person w/ him on my bench. There wasn't a single lucian anywhere.. Rng can just suck..
KazKaz (OCE)
: So what's the point of the Yordle buff?
So RNG based. I have had 6 yordles that never seem to dodge. Face an opponent (different match all together) and all I see is miss, miss, miss, miss and I'm like wth, they are dodging everything.. Upon closer inspection, they have 3 yordles that dodge more in one round than I seem to all game combined w/ 6.. I get rng but the calculating needs to be better so someone building 3 doesn't dodge more than you building 6... BTW RNG hates me..
