: Well, yes. That was what they agreed on. Because that was the contract they signed. Riot has no legal nor moral obligation to draw up a new contract because people don't like the old contract. If you don't like a contract, don't sign it. No excuse you can come up with will change that fact.

No excuse you can come up with will change that fact. It's easy to boil things down to legality, but legality =/= morality. Even if you make the argument that corporations have no moral obligation to do anything, it just truly sounds like the most base thing one could say. Just because they don't have to doesn't mean that shouldn't. I think on the basis of common sense, if you're trying to do away with the forced arbitration for newer employees, why not with the older employees, the ones that have stuck around longer? It would've been a sign of good will from the company. To me, this screams Riot is doing the absolute bare minimum when it comes to keeping employees around. You need a job, you sign the dotted line, and you work for us. Yeah, that's how the world works, but we should never be satisfied with how things are. Workers need to be respected and from the sound of the situation, Riot is putting trick2g levels of disrespect on their staff.

: "A signature means nothing and people shouldn't be held to contracts they sign".. Riot didn't force anyone to sign anything. They chose to sign the contract and work for Riot. That's their right. They also had the right to decline and/or negotiate the contract.

Rioter Comments
: Opinion: Riot isn't trying to ruin the game
I feel like they don't know what they're doing. Doesn't necessarily mean that they're trying to purposely ruin the game but every single time they touch something it feels like they ruin a few other things in the process.

brb redownloading smite because I had so much fun playing Ares and frying people with some meme ap build
: I agree with Riot.
I think the legality of it and the fact that Riot refuses to do the right thing despite legally being within their rights are two very different things.
: Renekton is an early game lane bully champion
The difference between Renekton and Panth though is that Renekton can actually survive long enough and usually reach his targets to basically oneshot them.

: Not entirely sure how you don’t think these changes will make Riven more easily punished in lane, especially considering it’s a full E nerf, not just early game - all game. She needs compensation buffs with that nerf or else she’d be 100% trash.
> [{quoted}](name=Sewer Side,realm=OCE,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=OZ5WaEcX,comment-id=0007,timestamp=2019-05-04T01:37:04.790+0000) > > Not entirely sure how you don’t think these changes will make Riven more easily punished in lane, especially considering it’s a full E nerf, not just early game - all game. > > She needs compensation buffs with that nerf or else she’d be 100% trash. She has many problems and the fact that she can Q more often pretty much offsets the E nerf. If anything more Qs is going to make fighting Rivens that much more annoying. It's bad enough that she can dictate most matchups because of her superior mobility, but now she has it up more often.
: Why are we compensating a nerf for Riven?
Riot doesn't want to hurt Riven Mains when they're financial whales. Sell those skins. Who the hell cares about balance anyways, right?
: Why is there only one armor item for AP?
Zhonyas is pretty busted honestly.
: Stop the Future 'Road to Master' Streamer Contents. Discourage the Streamers from Doing So
It's the same boring mouthbreathers making the same boring ass stale content. We get it, it brings in viewers. You get to teach scrubs how to play the game while you absolutely shitstomp your lane and the game in iron 4.

: yasuo nerf needs to be undone.
People just can't handle Yasuo
: Roll the dice.. Rank matching has worse odds than Vegas...
Promos seem to be like the climb in the Dark Knight Rises. You just have to play actively with the fear of losing to win. And you have to do it without a functioning team/any support. Like you just need to OD on the adrenaline and go well beyond your limits. And frankly, I think that just doesn't make sense on any level.
: Why do you think the community is toxic?
While part of it is to blame for playing a competitive team game, the gameplay also sucks as one death could just about mean your lane is over. One good gank top lane could set your jungler up to become an unstoppable mid-late game splitpusher. There's so much out of your control and it gets worse when your team blames you after the loss despite having things happen outside your control like being camped.

Banning champions?! How dare you? Especially when they're their best champions. You wouldn't ban Riven away from a Riven main would you?

This is nothing new. > > I don't have to check your opgg to know your division. Only low elo players? Like Hashinshin, SRO, and other popular top laners who don't play her? Also Hashinshin literally played Riven three times without ever touching her and won every game. Like he fed his ass off and still solokilled a fed Jayce after being camped.
: Actually. Top lane is where sub-optimal midlaners go.

Midlane champions, yeah. Viktor was never seen mid but then he had his run terrorizing top lane. Sending mages top seems to be a thing now, especially when they easily abuse certain champions.

: Akali currently is harder to play for less reward, and is still as hard as to learn and master like Yasuo.

That's because she had true stealth and they didn't wanna get rid of it so they had to gut the rest of her kit. Akali might require skill now that she's been properly deleted from the game, but Yasuo has always been tougher to play.
: Akali broken for 3 months - nerfed so hard and fast
It's because Yasuo takes skill to play. SORRY!

: What can i do as [Tryndamere top] to help my bottom lanes in (lane phase)
There's nothing you can really do as a top laner that can win bot lane without also sacrificing your ability to win top lane besides draw jungle/mid pressure. Maybe a good TP gank would work, but then again that's a huge summoner spell and you'll probably have to deal with missing out on some waves of CS.

Blunder of the century. First he turned Nunu and Willump, two true neutral monsters hell bent on chaos, into some disney character. Second, he creates Bard who is cool. No seriously, cool guy. Then there's kai'sa, who looks like a sexy anime fanservice character. And Kayle now looks like she ain't even an armored badass chick anymore. She looks like a lvl 40 vanilla WoW warrior who just got her first plate set and some particle effect wings LMAO.

Solidarity for shaco mains. Riot doesn't want any junglers besides kha6, sej, and lee sin.
: Daily reminder: Garen is useless and requires a QOL upgrade.
Garen isn't useless but laning as Garen top can be brutal especially in bad matchups which Garen has a lot more of now that conqueror exists to shred through his passive bonus stats.
: I think they are mistaken how hard it is to maximize riven’s Potential. Plus they probably just got out played by one.
> [{quoted}](name=Phieldworker,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=NTz9BlRz,comment-id=0000000000000000,timestamp=2019-02-18T22:14:13.350+0000) > > I think they are mistaken how hard it is to maximize riven’s Potential. Plus they probably just got out played by one. It's easy to be "outplayed" by a champion that literally has all the potential written in her kit. Simply put, most champions don't have the same potential as Riven because they aren't given anywhere near the same tools as Riven. The idea that she can outplay me with multiple dashes, a stun, a shield, a couple knockups, an AD steroid, and a ranged AoE finisher, is baffling. The only champion that had as much thrown into her kit was Irelia's rework before they took things away from her. The only difference is that Riot isn't afraid to touch Irelia while they wouldn't touch Riven with a ten foot pole due to her extremely diehard fanbase.
: If you think she is easy to play please play her in ranked and tell me how it goes. Players that don't main her average under a 45% winrate. Yes her mains have a very high winrate and that should be looked into, but she is not easy to play she is fun for most players and she is 100% worth the dedication to learn her since once you master her she dominates.
> [{quoted}](name=Frosted Tips,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=NTz9BlRz,comment-id=000000000000,timestamp=2019-02-18T22:09:23.295+0000) > > If you think she is easy to play please play her in ranked and tell me how it goes.

Yes her mains have a very high winrate and that should be looked into, but she is not easy to play she is fun for most players and she is 100% worth the dedication to learn her since once you master her she dominates. As you said, she dominates if you master her and her winrates are suspiciously high for her mains. That should be more than enough of a reason to look at her. Her winrate being at 45% for non-mains could be said with many champions currently in the game. If I picked up Wukong, I'm probably not going to make 50% winrate either. All champions take time to adjust and learn to play. That should be a given, yes. However, her being able to achieve the type of winrates that she maintains once mastered patch after patch is proof that she has some inherent advantage over other champions once mastered. She might be a little harder to learn, but she's not hard to play. You have more tools, it takes a little bit of adjusting to learn how to use them to gain an advantage over other top laners. Certainly not as punishing or as skill intensive as playing a Yasuo.
: Nice Shitpost. It was a good read. > The whole idea that Riven is hard to play is sadly a myth. She is an absolute nightmare to lane against because she generally dictates matchups. That was my favorite part. Was almost in tears.
> [{quoted}](name=Frosted Tips,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=NTz9BlRz,comment-id=0000,timestamp=2019-02-18T22:02:55.488+0000) > > Nice Shitpost. It was a good read. > > That was my favorite part. Was almost in tears. How can you not dictate a match up when you have five dashes LOL? She's easy compared to something like Yasuo. Like you've gotta be that kid pushing the circle block through the square hole if you think she's hard. I'm sorry, it's just the facts. There's a reason why there's a million Riven challengers worldwide, she's a fraudulent champion that rewards you for abusing a broken champion and Riot refuses to touch her because she's "hard to play".
