Old Sunfire cape had an awesome flame effect around the champ, then they removed it in favour of the lame aura indicator.

It's in the patch notes.

: "Hey dude it literally doesn't do what you say it does" is not "pedantic"
People are afk farming for reward experience, points, seasonal progress. It's pretty clearly understood. Care to comment on that point now that it's well defined?
Rioter Comments
: ya seriously, I know you're mobbing me with downvotes, but if you don't understand how that makes smurfing an issue, then obviously your outrage can be traced back to that misunderstanding.
I'm mobbing you with downvotes? lol. Take off your conspiracy cap. And what outrage? I'm not sure what you're imagining, my point was really quite simple. Smurfing will occur no matter what. Smurfs will get pushed forward to their normal rank no matter what. However the changes will only affect those near their true rank to remove frustration of getting placed with people who are perceivably lower. If someone is good enough to be facing plats, then they should be in plat.
: > TFT is all people afking for experience. TFT gives absolutely zero EXP. Try again.
What a needlessly condescending response. You know exactly what I'm referring to, yet you fixate on the word experience like some pedantic. "PTS" i.e. the experience points or quest points for seasonal rewards. Don't try again.

: because then smurfing is actually an issue, where as now, a challenger smurf has to fight other challenger smurfs to climb, and the true bronzies are spared from auto-losing that game.
What? How is smurfing an actual issue then Suppose Doinb creates a new account. Why not start all accounts at bronze 4. Ok let's say he wins 7 out of 8 placements. One match his team was just full of trolls and fed way too hard, not even he could carry. He ends up placing in gold 4. Now you have a top pro in gold... Gold's will have a rough time. However the system is tracking that he's way ahead. So in the next game he plays other silver 1 to gold 3 players. Give him 50 LP for the win... 70lp, 100 LP. Whatever it is to make him climb up... I would also suggest eliminating promo series. Let's say he is then in plat. He's now facing plat players. Still he stomps them. Next game hes in diamond. Etc. This is a fringe case but smurfs will still climb quickly. The only difference is there's more transparency to the system. If you're gold you should not be getting any bronze players because they're on a lucky winstreak. If the bronze player is too low, why even have them in bronze league in the first place. Just push them up to their silver or gold rank. Having people locked behind promo series and having all these intricate systems really doesn't need to exist. If they want to assign categories like plat diamond etc for people to feel like they achieved something they can do this still, but people would feel better about the whole thing if it was more clear. If you have a silver with a platinum winrate, why have some weird system that lags their growth.
: We haven't seen for certain whether or not TFT can stand on its own merit. Evidence seems to suggest it can, however. It having a reward for playing=!It needing a reward to get more than 1% of matches.
Evidence? Riot was shifty or just oblivious about what's really going on. TFT is all people afking for experience. Personally, TFT is extremely lacking in depth and it's main strength is it's aesthetic. The games core design is one that ends up focusing more on luck than true strategy or tactics, so it ends up being a more casual experience than I care to play. Given that it's established now I doubt it will ever change majorly. So like I said, the first season there are no rewards in it that I can use in the real game, im done with it . Twisted treeline is going to be less popular because it's been ages since it's ever been mentioned. New players join and play what they know. Especially considering treeline isn't an easy mode where you can meme around. People play seriously to win so with such a small player base any casuals will just quit . Treeline has a great map and is a natural variation on their main mode... No gimmicks. However with no balancing or tweaks to the map they left it in obscurity. Imagine if they never touched summoners rift for years on end.
: I genuinely feel sad and angry at riot over the loss of Twisted Treeline
Give people rewards like emotes for playing treeline and see popularity shoot up. First season tft offers nothing tangible I'm done playing it. Im surprised they were actually willing to say tft had huge numbers considering they offer incentive to play it ... Which shows because every game is people asking. 3v3 could have been used in competitive tie breakers even.real shame

It used to lock you in if you had a champ hovered. But I guess this one extra check ensures that everyone is present and ready.

You have got to be trolling. Stop derailing real issues. Making a counterpoint on something you're completely oblivious to doesn't make you sound smart... Scripts written to farm experience have been a thing for a long time. These bots dont get better. They don't play to win. They are there so someone can sell a level 30 account on a shady website
Rèzki (NA)
: Why am i getting unranked/bronze players in my gold promos?
Don't know why they bother with their league system at all. If you're in silver you should face silvers. Not some internal MMR calculation People will say you'll have a higher LP gain. Ok why not have that anyway and face people as close to your immediate placement as possible.
: ~~~ Twisted Treeline Farewell Post ~~~
Huge mistake removing this mode. I hope they're taking it down temporarily while they rework it and rerelease an updated one with a bunch of fanfare. Doesn't have to be very soon, but perhaps by end of this season, perhaps next?
: So I guess the general consensus is I can have my friends get multiple accounts and boost me incrementally to a rank I dont deserve or pay someone, see y'all in masters next season everyone!
It's not a consensus.. that's how it is. Make a post complaining that solo queue should be strictly solo. I honestly don't get why they don't make duo's go to flex.
Mr Sa1nt (NA)
: You're not wrong. Unfortunately, 25,000 other LoL players DO watch him. And as his audience, they ARE influenced by him. My argument has nothing to do with my liking or disliking of his stream, and everything to do with whether or not he is toxic. He is toxic, his perona, personality, whatever you want to call it. I don't mind that he is toxic, I mind that Riot "dislikes" toxicity, then allows it to continue. EDIT: Actually he's even up to just under 40,000 live viewers currently. Me watching someone else, doesn't really change his impact on the community.
I wasn't telling you how to fix him, I was just saying there's nothing for you to do with him. It's almost the same argument as violent video games, violent movies, etc... People watch them for entertainment, and it's up to them to know what is right and wrong when they are finished watching. Will some kids watch him and act out in game? Yes, and it's unfortunate. But that doesn't mean he should be shut down (Riot knows he keeps a large audience watching and he is in essence doing them a favour). I think he serves as an outlet of sorts. People watch him being toxic (he's not toxic in game really any more), because they know if they are, they will get banned.
Mr Sa1nt (NA)
: Tyler1 Is NOT Reformed
Don't type your anger, say it out loud. Helps me be less toxic. Also magically, my team seems to have a better chance of recovering and coming back if I don't flame them like a petulant child. Also, the cool thing about Tyler1 is he's a twitch personality. So rather than clicking on his thumbnail, you can click on any of the other 100s who are more to your liking.

: I don't understand your comment. Plus, who would pay for a rank in a dying game?
Just play ranked and you'll run into a bunch. Adc silver mains suddenly with 95 percent jungle winrates. Etc My comment was facetious since obviously VPN has more uses than just avoiding getting banned BC someone an NA account shouldn't have an EU ip address playing your account to gold. I don't know if riot tracks that or not but I think the consensus is they don't punish boosting or smurfs. They say to not let others share your acct which of course a VPN could help to mask

Victorious Aatrox << nuf said Pulsefire Thresh << great effects, but wtf is his head Lancer Hecarim << an ok skin, but 10 gems? And his attack doesn't even use his lance point True Damage << Yes I'll go there. Just so boring. Maybe it's for the young hip millenials, but I just dont care for this line at all.

: Smurfs at end season
End of season is rampant with smurfs and boosts. At least you're getting good practice and will have an easier time next season if you play on time. I remember doing ranked in last couple of weeks for victorious graves twisted treeline chroma and facing diamond up to Challenger players grinding for gold 5

Gathering storm, here I come. A sufficient, "Guys play safe, I need to farm and scale hard into late" should do the trick to let your team know you're going to get them a free win at the 2 hour mark.

: its so players cant afk and then come back and gain LP and be rewarded despite doing something toxic. sorry to say but leaving the game for that length of time is deserving of being considered a leave - if it wasnt punished, ppl would use leaving and reconnecting as a soft trolling method im guessing that the length of time you play after reconnecting (when youve been disconnected for a significant amount of time) may decrease the LP you lose? since just having left is usually a full LP loss, but 16 is an unusual amount to lose unless you have godlike MMR

Whether you think people should have a thicker skin is not the point since that will get you a light punishment It's not the year 2000 anymore so play nicer. I will say one thing. Now that I've stopped flaming teammates I have noticed an increase in come backs. So being nicer will benefit you directly as well
: Problem with Ziggs
I know what you mean but the bounce allows you to be tricky over minions. Then you have new characters like senna who can just lazer through the whole group for similar damage :p

I would prefer everyone talk all the trash and play to win, than be nice and int feed or ignore defending turrets. Both situations suck but one will always result in a loss.
To your last point, these are the most insidious players. The ones who know to write passive aggressive comments and tank the team by purposely playing below their level and soft inting allowing the enemt a guaranteed win rather than fighting back for a small percentage win chance. I don't think this can ever be checked. Especially when these types are typically sunshine and roses while you're winning so they probably get away with it. I'm guessing riot must have some masters degrees in stats or computer science who can help out with machine learning to detect these complicated cases. Or maybe it's just not worth the money to keep those people on payroll...
: Why it says my honor is too low for ranked rewards when I haven't been punished for over a year?????
Lol at your name ... Aryan master rage. How am I not surprised. Regardless.. I took a chat restriction from 4 down to 1 or 0 I forgot which, but I cleaned up my ways and got it back to 2 before the season ended and still got my victorious graves. I don't know if they changed thresholds since then, but it really didn't take me that long to get back a base level 2 by just controlling my temper better People get salty easily. So if you say anything to criticize you may get frivolously reported. Which I'm sure by the automated system will slow or halt your honour growth. Moreover if you're being negative you'll not likely get any honours unless you have some sort of super hard carry game. And since that is statistically rare, you aren't getting enough honour to grow

: biggest pet peeve in league. hey guy's i have work/ other obligations i have to go to in 10 minutes.
The worst is when you just took 4th dragon or a baron and need 2 or 3 min to close it out but person dips anyway. I mean, I've won 4v5 before but more often than not it's a slow and sad loss.
: Skins make you win.
It depends on the skin. If it's some old obscure skin, probably you're looking at an experienced player who plays the champ a lot. No skin? Maybe a scrub, but more often I find it's alt accounts, so you're in for a rough game (at least in gold). Especially true with garden or Leesin, base skin will make me cautious. Sexy and or popular skin? Really says nothing. Maybe just my experience but I find the star guardian skins and project skins often have no correlation to the person's skill. For champs with few skins, if someone has one they're probably halfway decent. I find ArcLight velkoz will always hit crazy Q's through minion waves.
Anilinov (EUNE)
: TFT 3 star balancing please
3 star shouldn't be a thing. Makes the game more about RNG rolling duplicates. A more compelling game would be to have a large diverse roster of champs that you can change in between rounds to beat your opponents roster. 3 star isn't the end all but it is definitely a massive factor especially with 3 upgraded items -- that can make them unstoppable unless you have your own
: I'm not making it to gold this season

: Senna is a bit nuts
They should have just given lux her global lazer back. It doesn't make sense for senna to have it. I suggested before to have Senna's ult do an umbra penumbra effect where the umbra damages but range is relatively short and the penumbra can go much further for shield. Even global range for shield.

No, they're not. And, no, it doesn't (bring up anything credible -- you'll get a bunch of anecdotal evidence followed by an echo chamber of confirmation bias ... just because a lot of people say something, doesn't make it so -- fallacy ad populum). Bad luck happens on both sides, you probably just don't take note. Today I had a ranked game where opposing adc was absent for first 10 minutes, by which time his team was already cripplingly behind. I'm not gonna pretend that we stomped them because I'm so much better. Enemy team had a bad shake, but as we say in NA, "WE TAKE THOSE".
: Actually you should place in iron. Riot even said them selves you should place in iron starting out. So either you are lying or your a minority. Because even players who were plat places in iron having played the previous seasons. And on top of that even a person above me who spoke to riot support confirmed it. god why do you have to be so illogically frustrating? i was placed in iron and got out in like 10 games. Hello???? logic are you there? earth to logic?
My logic is pretty clear to follow... Also, I don't know where I SHOULD place, but I'm telling you where I did. I'm not some high level challenger player either. You can check my op.gg and click on solo ranked games. There are 8 of them, with the first having an average of gold 4, and the last having an average of gold 2. Again, before this season, my last ranked game was in season 5 (I have victorious morgana and graves only). I also did the ranked games in October, so not sure if that has anything to do with it.

It says, let me quote it: "new accounts will likely have to climb from Iron". *LIKELY* Moreover this isn't even a first party source. Moreover, we aren't talking about fresh accounts, as you and I both had ranked games prior to the implementation of Iron. Moreover, you said you placed in iron after not playing 2 seasons. After my 3 season break, my first win (1-0) got me to silver, after which I continued to climb over my 8 games (finishing gold 3). You placing in Iron doesn't mean all others do.
