: Reasons for creating servers in South-Africa
the game is in a state of contraction, where the playbase is shrinking. there will be no new servers.
: You seriously can't tell me that this is okay....
the nerfs for him have been on the pbe for a while so.... wtf are you crying for

: Five Critical Improvements to Riot's Behavioral System (from somebody who has never been punished)
rainman has a lot of videos about how you won't get punished if you don't type anything offensive in chat because the system is automated specifically to monitor chat and not toxic playstyle (hard inting) I do believe him
: Why is lucian immune to nerfs ?
Because his strength is a sign other adcs are too weak. He is a stat-check for bot lane. The real solution is to buff the terrible ADCs.
: Tier1 towers
I remember being a jg, gank bot lane when the minion wave had stacked up and taking their tower completely off that first gank. Then, bot lane rotated to top and we took that too. So by 10 min we took 2 lanes out and then took herald at spawn for midlane 2 towers. That doesn't happen anymore. I'm not sure how long you want early game to last, but it feels pretty good right now.

: ADC players don't seem to grasp the reason they are squishy
: I just feel like every ranked I go into is just a shit show this season
placement games are something you just have to endure. After 20+ games the mmr becomes a lot more accurate. I have gotten 3 accounts through promos and it was predictably over by 10 min with no chance of a comeback because someone was just too stupid to be carried.

Rioter Comments
: Help your jungler help you.
If there is a JG contest in river or during an invade, the team who's laners rotate first will likely be the winners of that game. They have a better macro sense AND they are about to have an early advantage by winning a crucial fight. The OP is super super super right. JG and laners work together. The jungler is not a support for every lane.
Rylalei (EUNE)
: So let me get this straight: Boards: "Riot gutted powerfarming and only level 2 gankers are viable now" LS: "So now Riot buffed power farming" If I'll have to chose one side, I'll side with LS for the simple reason that's he's a guy who coaches pros and challengers, so I think he knows his stuff better than the boards.

I like LS's patch rundowns but he focuses on pro play for his analysis, which doesn't always translate to solo que. As an example, he doesn't think shaco is strong (because he isn't in pro play) whereas a shaco main in solo que can easily carry a game consistently.
HÔPÊ (EUW)
: Patch 9.2
When the jungle is in a famine state it pushes people in to utility style junglers: ivern, nunu, ... As well as super gank heavy lvl 2 junglers who can reliably get exp from lanes after the kill AND can invade the tank junglers: xin, udyr, camille, graves, twitch This will kill any scaling carry jungler, particularly if their ganks rely on their ults: yi, shyvanna, eve It's going to be a real sh#tshow in 9.2
1MRPOPO (NA)
: What Intentionally feeding looks like in 2019
Real LoL players have more than 2 level 30 accounts. How else do you dodge trash team comps? Take this time to level/buy one if you dont' have one already
: We are straying away from what the support role should be.
people used to complain about the lack of bot diversity. Kill lanes kind of fixed that.
: Only 2 roles matter.
How do all the top, support and ADC mains stay in challenger every season? By you being wrong?
Tedo58 (EUNE)
: People who constantly go something like 2/10 should be getting deranked faster (higher LP loses).
Worst idea I have ever read on these boards since I started playing when Lux was released. Use your head. If that system was in place and you died a few times in laning phase, let's say 0-3. then you have to make a guess at what the outcome of the game will be. If you think your team can't carry you, then you are BETTER OFF GOING AFK than continuing to play it out because it will result in less LP loss. I get the spirit of the suggestion, but the lack of foresight is unreal.
Moody P (NA)
: i can't help but feel like base stats aren't distributed fairly
You're making the assumption that Riot intends all champions to be competitive. They do not. How often has a champ sat in the bottom 5% for months on end without ever seeing even a slight number adjustment? There are a handful that stay that way for years.
: It probably because a large % of Boards just post complaining about how bad the balance is. But most of the complainting would probably be solved if they actually explained how and why they do the changes they do.

But most of the complainting would probably be solved if they actually explained how and why they do the changes they do. You got downvoted for a completely sensible answer to the question which is also an agreement with the OP (if people bothered to read the second line, which they probably did not). I think this situation nicely sums up why Riot doesn't put my resources in to this board.
: RITO PLEASE: African Servers
They would do it if it were a good financial move. They do not care about making your life better or fairness.
: Shyvana Needs 2 Things Before She gets Larger Scale Work Done
AP shyvanna works, or alternatively you can do the old build if the enemy team is full of HP stacking tanks (never happens any more)
: Keystones are the main reason the game is how it is, nerf them or remove them
This post is completely right. There is too much synergy with some champions while others don't even have a keystone that is viable for them. Get rid of keystones. Balance around champion base stats and items. Let's get this game stable again please.
Rioter Comments
: Equal lanes
aren't they rolling out a role-based que this season? Like you have separate MMRs for each role.
: I would like an alternate game mode where it reverts league to patch 4.20
I used to feel excited to play this game and now I think "okay I better make sure I op.gg everyone on my team and make sure they know what they're playing" then I say "okay do they have more cc than us?" and if I don't like the answer to either of those questions it's a dodge. People don't play for fun and it shows. If you do have a 4fun person on your team you're going to get your morale pounded for the next 25+ minutes as it is no longer as easy to carry as it was in season 1-4. I'm a jg player who doesn't want to play graves or camille, but I can only ban one of them.

: for all those "casual" ranked players in preseason:
0-10 promos is the key to enjoying this game and always will be
Rock MD (NA)
: NA, KR, and BR voted jg as the strongest role according to Meddler's QGT
in the current 'explode you before a single cc is over' meta with trash like camille being alowed to exist... of course jg is the most potent. They took a lvl 3 problem and shoved it down all our throats at level 2 instead. The game is basically over at 5 minutes now.
: Riot, this is how you fix jungle
I was facepalming right until you mentioned LCS and that's when I knew you actually understood the situation.
: It's amazing how different this game used to be in S3
people can kill you in one rotation, while behind, even if they miss some of their spells lategame dark harvest hits harder than some ults sooooo fun

Rioter Comments
: Towers are just awful now and I hate it.
Riot wants to keep the average game time down so more people play. I remember a time when I wouldn't play a game of League because I was worried I didn't have the full hour for que, champ select and a 45+ minute match. They can't cater to everyone and you are not their target.
: Why are smurfs so toxic?
/ignore all every game. there is literally nothing to see in chat that makes the game more enjoyable.
Akumu (NA)
: This entire Preseason is a massive failure.
You can't call it a failure in the first week, when it's like 2 months long. Who knows what it's going to look like my S9 start
KamiPrimeE (EUNE)
: do u want to know why this game is not fun anymore
The closer you get to your true mmr (ie you have a 50% winrate) the less you can carry and the more if feels like the team decides if you win or not... which they do... which doesn't feel fun.
: I'm excited to see how bad things get once the jungle exp is nerfed this preseason
The lower the exp and gold value of the JG gets, the less farm-reliant junglers you will see and the more "do enough camps to hit level 2 and then gank" champs you will see. It's already the way in solo que and less jungle value only pushes that further and further.

: Go on your profile page, look for the "stats" tab, then find Shyvana. The stats there will most likely give the best indicator for what you need to work on.

: Can I just go into a normal game without getting ranked judged?
Yeah I think you can go "/ignore all" at the start of the game and experience how league was meant to be played.

toravi (NA)
: A way to nerf int Sion
Maybe league needs more champ-specific strategies and we should just let people develop a counter to the play-style. I have never seen this strat win in my elo (sub D4), but I'd be happy to play against it just to mix things up.
: Players Going 'AFK' Without Actually Going AFK
I run it down a lane when I'm done with a game. Or sometimes I go from lane to lane, taking all the cs and tilting everyone else in to raging. Then the game ends really fast. If THEY start the /ff it ill probably go through, but if I do it it probably will not.
: This is why most people who play league with real life or mental issues or illnesses snap so hard and get themselves banned. The game is NOT fun unless you're playing with *real life* friends who you trust and have a strong bond with. Anything else is klingon pain sticks. Aka torture. The very few exceptions are people who greatly enjoy using a certain champion and get pleasure from it (like landing double damage Q's with karthus or somethiing), and who just /fullmute all every game and treat your teammates like advanced AI bots. That stems some of the silliness from mentally ill teammates but not from the stomp syndrome. It's best to find something to play that you actually enjoy. There are a LOT Of games out there now. Many trash, some excellent, most "standard fare.".

: Did they nerf Orange essence again? Or is it really that bad in general.
easy: don't spend money on this game. why buy as skin for a champ when riot might just allow that champ to become non-viable?
: Why I've quit League of Legends after 7 years.
advice for you from a veteran player of ranked: /fullmute all as soon as you have determined your team is not putting effort in, run it down mid and alt-tab out and play something else. I get a lot of my WoW daily quests done while running it down in LoL cause I know the game is lost. don't "care" about the outcome of the game on an individual basis, especially in promos when you are matched with apes to "test you" high silver is better than average, don't get so discouraged
D357R0Y3R (EUW)
: Riot: "We will prevent junglers from ganking at lvl 3"
They should remove the jungle role if they dont want it to have influence the way it does. Nerfing the JG resources only encourages early lane interaction because they have removed the losses associated with failing to farm.
: Made Plat for the first time!
Bad news, plat is the least fun elo. Gold is way way way better.
: What do you know, Ahri back up to highest playrate AND winrate midlane in Plat+
I was smurfing and had a ahri-one-trick smurf on my team with 70% winrate in 60 games. She went 1-8 and lost us the game and I put all my effort in to getting her ahead. I don't think i'm gonna try any more in ranked.

: i think it's time we show riot that this whole storm isnt gonna pass over
my thoughts are that you are really picking the low hanging fruit in your life. there are probably a ton of great causes you could be involved in, but you're choosing this because you can just be a keyboard SJW from the comfort of your chair. find something better to do. 99.9999999% of the people playing this game don't even come to these boards to read your fake outrage. you are accomplishing nothing.
