: TFT: not my style
I still can't imagine why it would be worth bragging about being the best TFT gambler in the world. Wow a Masters TFT player, what weight does that hold? Will there be TFT eSports in the future? Count me out.

As others have said, you ONLY get the chroma, no skin. A bit of a saver's tip though, if you buy all the borders and chromas you want now, wait 6 months, this year's PROJECT: skins will be on sale in 6 months for ~50% off.

: Where do you draw the line?
Low key, where is the player appreciation? Servers down? Have a bit of RP. You've been 1 good boi/girl this year? Have a skin, on us! Thanks for playing our game! I think that's what we all really want in the end. Just a thanks for being a committed player base. If it weren't for submitting funny drawings to Riot support for RP, I would have been gone a long time ago. But honestly, it doesn't pay to be either an entirely f2p player or a player that spends money on this game. Because whatever you put in, or lack there of, only a marginal fraction goes into upping the experience as a whole, client could perform better, UX could be better, Clash is still in development, 'what's an RGM?'. These are features or areas of the game as a whole that could be improved but they rarely ever do.
: LEAGUE WAS THE 2ND HIGHEST GROSSING PC GAME IN JULY
I would say most of it is because of TFT. People were itching for a new casual game and Riot delivered. Seriously, there are so many level 1 accounts made JUST to play TFT.

: Why is Heimerdinger a mage?
Then we must pose the questions: Why are Viktor and Orianna also mages? I believe the term 'Hextech' is the marriage of magics and technology and therefore allows technologies to be categorized as magical. Although allowed to be categorized as magical doesn't mean technology is ultimately magical. It also allows it to be physical as the very machinery it's encased in. Which is why we have Camille, Jinx, Vi, and the likes.

We don't even know what the buffs are. All some dude at Riot tweeted was a spreadsheet that said the words 'buff' and 'yasuo'

My main question is if it still increases the ults crit like before. The tooltip doesn't change like it used to. I think you really need to take time and sift through some of the info that was just given to you. You're question involves, Jhin's 4th shot. Whether that be his passive or ultimate, we don't know with you just saying '4th shot'. Second, you're question also includes Infinity Edge, so look at the wiki page that has info on Infinity Edge. I'm sure there is something in it that involves interactions with Jhin's "4th shot".
: Improvement For New Players
Idk about laning and classes. To each their own on what a champion is and what a champion isn't. As well as laning. That's just something people pick up. Having to ONLY last hit was never an explicit mechanic of the game. It was an effective tactic carried over from DotA. Maybe info on jungling, drake, and baron would be something worth acknowledging to the newbies out there. What you don't want to do in a game is to hold the players hand entirely unless they want to be hand held. That's why players write guides. If a player seeks the info on how to be a better LoL player, they will find it.
: Riot needs to address the Winston in the room
That used to be part of a feature called Team Builder. It allowed players to queue the roles they want with the champion they wanted. At the same time posts the most in demand roles for players wishing to get into games faster. It was a neat feature but it did have it's downsides. * It was blind pick only so no bans. * Players that wanted to play something outside the meta were quickly dismissed, lets say brand support? * It was common for junglers and supports to be quickest to match, with the other 3 taking upwards of 10 minutes. * Because of unique players being placed into unique teams, matchmaking after building your team took too long, IE: A mix of diamond, blonze, platinum would be hard to find a team that equal in skill overall. Unfortunately there was no reward for enqueing as the most in demand role. And unlike Overwatch, LoL is F2P meaning it would cost Riot to reward entirely F2P players for playing the in-demand market.

: Could we maybe reduce the cooldown on Banshee's Veil a bit?
Maybe in AP vs AP matchups. The ability to ward off a threat every, let's say, 30 seconds at a time is pretty strong. Early game, cooldowns are still relatively long so 'just popping their banshees' actually takes more effort 'to pop' if the interval were any shorter. Although not a huge difference but could you imagine if it were still laning phase, "Hey his banshee's is popped come gank again!" Only to find out that it's up again would be pretty annoying. And like the person before me said, Zhonya's can get you killed. Banshee's can't. You do not have to proactively use Banshee's, rather, your opponent has to actively play around it. Whereas Zhony'as you have to be conscious of when to activate it.
: Could we maybe reduce the cooldown on Banshee's Veil a bit?
If the cooldown were any lower it could be considered an early game rush item.
: Kassadin's passive should display how much damage it's negated when you hover over it.

Did you feel 'good' about it before or after you found out they had someone in Master on their team? Honestly, if you didn't know about it before hand you wouldn't have minded at all. If you had looked it up later you may have felt a bit humbled that your skills placed you against someone in a higher ranking. It wouldn't have mattered at all if you didn't look into Pandora's box that is LoL's matchmaking system. Sometimes ignorance is a bliss. Whether you think matchmaking is right or wrong completely depends on how you perceive it.

: Low FPS High end pc ( or any computer really)
There's a post somewhere if you do a quick google search on 'boards formatting', it'll tell you how to post images in your posts. Also, I wouldn't worry about all that fancy 3rd party stuff with the overclocking and etc, I'd worry more about having your drivers up to date for your card specifically, since they're the main source of your hardware running correctly. Everything else is just bells and whistles.
: Banning player for playing badly?
Anyone can have a bad game but it's the reaction to having played a bad game is what decides if they should be reported or not. If someone is keeping their cool and trying their best to keep their agency in the game then they're doing their best. Trying their best is all you can ask of someone.

: Board moderators you need to get a fucking grip lol
The fact of the matter is, your comment offended someone, they didn't see 'git gud' in the same light as you did. If having read that makes you want to respond with, 'then they're soft' then the initial 'git gud' comment was never a playful one to begin with, rather it's malign. Besides, 'git gud' although a meme some of you may claim it to be, is not generally accepted in any community since it doesn't help anyone. It's not useful advice and it's more of a nuisance than it is something to laugh at.
: I'm calling out the Moderator in demand of an explanation.
> Most bronze players are brand new/ kids/ older people playing with their kids. That's not an insult, that's a legitimate fact. There are exceptions to that rule, but for the most part it's a pretty consistent generalization. With what resource? And what grounds were there to gain in stating that 'fact'. Without context, mentioning this 'fact' means that you were dismissing their arguments and discriminating the player being a person who is "brand new, a kid, or an older player with children". So what if they were? What does any of that have to do with anything regarding the discussion? Are you saying that because this player could have been a new player, someone younger than you, or had children, that their arguments or comment wasn't pertinent to the discussion? If you have to answer 'not no' then you were being dismissive and therefore is against the boards rules and guidelines. _____ But sure, there are some posts that still utterly disgusting that remain but I can only imagine what the mods have to go through when they have to sift through all the thoughtless bullshit everyone wants to post on here. I mean I wouldn't want to lead a community that is so engrossed in pulling each other down rather than building each other up. And don't say, 'this is just how League works, it's toxic so get used to it.' because that's not on me or anyone else. That's up to the individual to either make or break the community they deem themselves to be part of. So if it's a toxic community you want, it's a toxic community you contribute to. Meanwhile, there are dozens, hundreds, thousands, of players that are doing their best to make the boards a welcoming place for talk and gathering.
Dukues (NA)
: Advice for those who complain about match making especially normal modes
I wish this was something everyone would follow. It's a toxic behavioral trait to see a few statistics of a player or game and compare yourself and others to immediately think the outcome is predestined. People would rather blame matchmaking for their loss than to tell a story about how they won a game against players that ranked higher than them.
: I'll just keep posting this until a mod responds...
The comment 'what's your excuse?' is no means a ground that facilitates discussion. Instead was a comment used in a provocative manner. No one just get's on the boards to post something as menial as 'what's your excuse?' without malign intent. Now quit spamming the boards with 'I need moderation explanation' and start understanding why you got punished in the first place. Stop being bitter and having knee jerk reactions to posts you don't agree with and having your content removed. Sit back and think, parse it out yourself. Then come at the boards with a discussion at hand. None of this 'I did nothing wrong' bullshit.
: Are you referring to my comment or his? Because I'm pretty sure mine got removed as well. That, or it was something else. I just know that I got 2 removal notifications in like 24 hours and didn't bother to check them. I admit that I can be a huge dick sometimes and that my content often breaks the boards rules, and I accept full responsibility for my actions and acknowledge that I often take things too far, and I thank the mods for correcting my behavior during my outbursts. That being said, your post was probably removed for... Rank shaming? What rank they are is kind of irrelevant to the conversation, as there are probably higher ranked players who are just as toxic that would act the same way if their team was feeding. Its better to just not bring up ranked at all in any conversation, especially when it pertains to a certain player's abilities to do something.

I think your comment deletion might have had been because it was part of the chain of the parent comment being deleted. I've had my comments deleted a handful of times because the original comment my comment referred to was deleted. In other words, orphaned comments are deleted for not having explicit context.
: It's getting really hard to take this game seriously anymore
The acronym for League of Legends is LoL. What's there to take serious?
: Pyke deserves nerfs, let me explain why! (numbers included)
One thing I realized playing Pyke in ARAM, he has insanely high innate armor scaling. In bottom lane in SR that's huge since it mitigates the possibility of dying to basic attack from the average marksmen. Combined with his grey health mechanic, Pyke is a champion that very difficult to kill if it means getting shut down gold claiming Pyke's bounty. I do think he is really slippery though grey health, cc, and stealth. That's completely fine. Personally, I never understood why Pyke needs to have the 2nd highest base armor at level 1 and 1st highest base armor at level 18.
: Hey, dude, I _love_ dogs too, but don't get me wrong. Cats are better. Your "variety" of cats is wrong. There are _**SEVERAL**_ breeds that are all unique. Big &amp; Beautiful, Short &amp; Cute, Small &amp; Fuzzy, Big &amp; Fuzzy, _**Several**_ Different Types of Patterned, and yes, the ugly hairless cat. Heck there's even short-legged cats. Like, there's so much variety. I didn't even list much compared to what's out there. There actually is a lot of different variety in cats. What you are saying is basically saying "Here's a dog, there's a dog with splotches, there's a fat dog, there's a thin-haired dog, and a dog. So much variety". Learn more about cats before you hate. Don't be a classic dog lover that hates cats because they are "_cats_". Have you ever _**SEEN**_ kittens that are 5 weeks old? They are the most _**ADORABLE**_ things in the _ENTIRE WORLD_!

I just want to point out in no way did I mention that dogs are better than cats or ever said I hated cats. Just that they're all identical and seem less varying than that of dogs. The only difference I ever see is the color or depth of their fur or if they're fat. But you know, it's the internet, imagine getting worked up over someone else's opinion on cats.
HàrrowR (EUW)
: Why do you even play immobile ADCs
I'm a season 1 marksman main myself, if anything, playing 'immoble' adcs is a testament to your fundamentals of positioning and traversing the map. At their core, marksmen do their work best by keeping their enemies at arms length. It's a rookie mistake to use dash directly forward as a 'mobile' marksman as that one, possibly two if you survive after the first, was really only a means to forgive your bad positioning in the first place. Marksmen like Ashe and Jhin do a lot of their work best from ulti range, you don't need to be auto attack range to do work, you can simply ulti and cover your teammates that way. On a side note, I'd argue that any type of movement speed perk is a sign of mobility. It may not be a dash but movement speed helps you kite your opponent and side step lethal abilities and crowd control. Players generally have the tendency to underestimate movement speed by a huge degree, oh but when they see the likes of Hecarim, Master Yi, Singed and Rammus coming dat booty, suddenly they're way too problematic and that their movement speed needs to be nerfed to kingdom come.

I always think back with, "Yes, Yuumi, I am and always have been, thank you for acknowledging that." Seriously, have you ever seen how cute Shiba Inus are? What in the world are they? Are they dogs? Bear cubs? Foxes? Idk? They're such a unique look for a dog. And cats are all... it's cat, a cat with spots, a fat cat, a hairless cat, and a cat. Like, wow the variety is endless.
: I honestly don’t understand the hype for TFT over Nexus blitz
NB was so good, every game was decided to end at 20 mins. You could not stall out a game so it meant you had to made decisions on the spot. There was always a call to action for all players, very rarely will you see "split pushing" instead everyone needs to converge on the current objective. NB also welcomed any build for a champ. There wasn't ever 'one build' that ruled all builds. Probably because there weren't any analytics to it but it surely meant that 20 mins, no one is going to remember what you built as long as everyone had fun and was winning.
: Slower and longer paced games
I'd argue that game modes are only shorter because players, since 2013 Worlds Championship Series, have started to adopt pro player strategies. Players, since then, have become more decisive in taking objects, what to do after kills, jungle paths, importance of last hitting. Your average Gold player is probably equivalent to that of a high Platinum player in 2013. But it's because of these factors games have the tendency to close out sooner. Players are more aware of what needs to be done after taking a tower or a dragon to push the game into a victory. Yes there are still cases where 'players may not seem to know what they're doing' but that's because the other 4 know what to do and end up doing they carrying themselves. So whether or not it has to do about one's knowledge on how to end the game there will always be the likelihood that another player on your team that has an idea of what to do when the game ends. A just a small fact to support this idea: The plan of split pushing with TP top laners in the bot lane and prepping baron has been a WCS strat in 2012 and 2013, this is now commonplace that everyone uses. Just got watch some older vods and write down all these things the teams could have done better to close the game out sooner. It's worth trying out.
: Your favorite PROJECT Skin from PROJECT 2019?
I think the only one that stands out to me is PROJECT: Irelia prestige, just for the colors. I kinda wished she didn't get prestige though and had chromas. I'm not a fan of pink and I always find "gold" to be a tacky color. Outside of that, my interest only lies in the Reckoning Chromas, they look really nice for Zed, Fiora, and Lucian.
: Thirty seconds per round in the beginning is too long but far too short at the mid-late game.
It really matters the most when you're not in top 4 and are trying to pivot your strategy.
GuuMi (NA)
: New little legends and rn-jesus
I care about cosmetics I just don't see any point in spending an abhorent amount of money to have the CHANCE to craft a little legend. I only ever care about having them solely for TFT, I don't ever bring them into ARAM and therefore isn't worth spending any RP on.
: Does anyone else feel the new Udyr skin trivializes his Ult skin?
Oh yeah, everyday. The line between each skin tier blur almost every month when Riot presents new skins.
: I feel like a real problem is that nobody actually knows how accurate league stats are
Riot does publish official stats through their API as well as the client, where you can compare your performance on X champ to those in other ranks as well as players in the LCS or other LoL affiliated eSports scene.
Cräfty (EUW)
: Riot! Show Ekko some love, goddamnit! He's been waiting for almost 3 years, now...
If I could, I would just lower his attack delay on his basic attacks and primed E. Nothing sucks more than winding up a basic attack for the passive proc only for the unit to die. The same goes for E, there's such a long wind up time it basically lowers primed E's effective range from 375 to 300. Either that or apply Talon and Warwick's Q follow through mechanic on his E so even after a long channel he commits. After all, Ekko still has ulti to rely on to get out of tough situations.
