: What can we do to have an impact as the community?
Have sound and reasonable arguments that don't involve having to shit on others to make a point. Or better yet, just don't care about the "statistics" of a champion and just play the game how you want to play it.

Correct me if im wrong, but cast range and area of affect are different stats? Heal doesnt have a cast range. Its just centered on you. Teleport is already global. Clarity is a self buff and not available on summoners rift. Flash also doesnt have a cast range. Smite would affected, though. I dont think it would be that powerful except QoL and junglers prefer water walking anyway.

I dont think it would be that powerful except QoL and junglers prefer water walking anyway. Heal, Clarity, Flash, and Smite, all have a cast range. It does not matter whether or no you are required to select a target by means of point-and-click, skill shot, or AoE, it still has a cast range - the maximum potential distance the ability can apply it's effect. You may not have noticed but if you hover your cursor over summoner spells, Flash, Heal, Clarity, and Smite, you'll see a radius that reflects the maximum distance you can cast that spell to.

: Do you think I could get 60 RP from Riot Support with this Drawing?
I dunno their upper-limit on gifting someone remainder RP but I think you'll be able to geth the 60 RP you're looking for. Your art looks nice! Good luck!

Hey at least you didn't get demoted right? D4 60 LP is better than having to be in Platinum all over again.
: How are plat players and diamonds different?
From my experience in previous seasons attending different tournaments where my teams of most 3x plat and 2x gold faced against teams of 2x plat and 3x diamond or something similar. Diamond players usually have plans within plans, planned way before the game has even started so they have methods to fall back on in case something bad happens. Diamond players also have thing for timing. I still haven't gotten it all together yet but because Diamond players have plans figured out ahead of time, they execute plans and ganks with little to no hesitation. It's insane. But something this isn't always the case. Sometimes getting to Diamond is just pure luck and some of them aren't even really **that** good, the just get lucky. I will say, a lot of my diamond friends tend to be the kind of player that picks up almost any role while still outputting great results and doing well coordinating the team. I guess all I can really go back to is that they're good strategists overall.
: Why am I having such a hard time on Riven?
You may have gotten much of Riven's mechanics down but you might just need more practice against certain matchups or understanding the laning principle for wherever you're playing Riven. You could be taking more damage from Minions without realizing it or maybe you're not understanding the enemy build. Perhaps they've opted in more more health or regen.
Saezio (EUNE)
: When was the last time a DoT effect was introduced to the game?
Maybe because as others have stated, it's much hard to balance output of damage over time vs instant damage. I believe one of the major factors for this is because nerfing or buffing dots affect the output almost quadratically. If you were to tweak, what seems to be a mere 2%, per tick for a DoT whose maximum tick is 10 in 5 seconds, you're reducing the overall output by 20%. And of course you can fiddle with 2% to whatever 'seems balanced' but that doesn't change the fact that whatever amount you put, you must apply that change per tick. Therefore the buff or the nerf is always going to be multiplied by whatever the rate output ticks at. And who knows, maybe there's also software limitations that prevent LoLs engine from processing mathematical inputs of sub 0.05. We just don't know. On another note, aside from balancing DoT damage on a base level, you must also consider what consequences could occur if and when DoTs may have interactions with other item or rune effects.
: Senna's been out for almost a month now and she still hasn't even seen the slightest balance change.

If not, well, I think there should be one. Surely there are more solutions than just whining and bitching on boards- from both sides. I think low effort tends to be along the lines of, "Senna is broken and OP with XX.X% winrate and I can't get out of silver because of it" On the surface it just sounds like typical bitching about new changes that happen in the game, which happens all the time and therefore those whining posts happen. It's true that not everyone will like change but not everyone and their grandmother has to exclaim in on a boards post. It gets stale and meaningless to swamp the boards, that may have already posted a similar topic but rather than choosing to partake in an on-going discussion, a player may host their own discussion with their emotionally-linked biased, hence the example I've given. There are ways to communicate with the boards mods, and I'm glad you mentioned that because it may actually not be as transparent as an average user may see it. There IS a discord server players and moderators can subscribe to. On the discord server there are ways to communicate with mods about posts, post removals and re-examination, information redaction, and almost anything you may need to inquire about with a mod. It's not that mods are better than anyone, they're a player of a video a game like anyone else. They are just as passaionate about the game as anyone else on the boards. The only thing they want most is the boards to come together and find out what posts are fine and what posts aren't, they serve for the community. As it stands right now, with posts like these, mods are actively allowing 'Call out' posts because they value what the goers have to say and it's what the community seems to want, afterall, this post hasn't been taken down, yet. So this is as transparent as they've ever been. What really pushes posts to becoming removed is if they really just don't abide by the rules. There are some cases, very rare, and if it really is that big of a deal to change the rules, it will be. But because everyone and would rather make it a trend to 'call out mods' for removing their _allegedly humble posts_ with vulgarity, it diminishes the value of the call outs to begin with and in turn result in posts being removed and mods looking like they 'silence the people'. There are only so many times a boy can cry, "Wolf!" before people stop giving a shit.

: So I called Riot discussion board mods out on several of their horrific practices, and you know what
What I don't get, is that the normal player wouldn't normally be bothered with their post being removed. The first thoughts that would go through their mind would be, * "Oh shit! Maybe I should refactor my post and maybe it won't get pulled." OR * "Ah okay. Perhaps I'll put more effort into my post next time." OR * "It's not a big deal, it wasn't that huge of a topic anyways." And by more effort, their post will be written in such a way that it adheres to the rules. One that doesn't contrive chaos. Everyone fucking knows that Riot isn't the definition of a perfect company, people complain about the happenings in LoL and IRL all the time. But to take it another step further into accusing Riot for conspiring against players is harassing an entity which is no different than naming and shaming only to then take out your frustrations on the mods? > 1. So now Riot removes you if you don't enjoy getting mocked, disgusting 2. So Riot is punishing people for calling out cheaters now, with no basis eithe 3. So I was getting abused by someone in disscussion forums, and Riot banned ME Folks like you seriously need to chill and **BE BETTER!** You're acting like Riot or the volunteer mods are out to get you. The Mods are only doing their duties to make sure the posts are within reason of the '**Community** Guideline', a set of rules all board-goers, INCLUDING YOU, can agree to sticking to. You calling out the mods because your post got shut down as if it were some kind of _BIG SCOOP TO PUT OUT ON YOUTUBE_, is not an act that benefits the boards community. You are merely naming and shaming just because you can't get over the fact that **you cannot better yourself** to bring your posts to adhere to the Community Guidelines.
Quáx (NA)
: Im getting really sick of release skins being in larger skin lines.
I feel you on that one. It seems unfair in the way that a skin line like PROJECT: or Star Guardians gets hyped up every year, fans start making guesses, theory-crafting their ideal skin line candidates but then when the new champion comes along and a skin line is on the verge of being released, they're automatically included, no questions asked. It doesn't leave a lot to the players to figure out who will fit into the that skin line when it's already granted. It even kills the creativity and inspiration that goes behind guessing who would fit. So many awesome fan arts come from looking towards the next release and hoping your favorite champion is represented in that skinlines universe.

: Can whoever designed Omnistone explain who is intended to use it, and why they would choose it?
If you're someone who thinks on the fly and makes the best out of any scenario, then this rune is for you. Some people seek that kind of 'balls to the walls' thrill knowing that they have nothing else but instincts tell them their next course of action. Not everything in LoL needs to be clear cut and forward. So maybe not all runes and keystones find much use. That's totally fine, they'll find a way to shine some day. Perhaps the reasoning for it to be put into the game is simply as a means to NOT be locked to a single keystone.

: LoL Burnout versus URF - what about other reasons? [Poll]
I haven't played LoL in the past 3 months, mainly due to finding a job and getting one! HOWEVER, I have faced LoL burnout many times that aren't mutual with URFs release. From my experience, having to keep up with the events since TFTs release have been a nightmare. Event passes are a total grind fest. This game being entirely free to play, with players who are likely to maximize the content to dollars spent on this game result in players getting burnt out for the sake of a glorified Epic Skin. You literally cannot excel the rate at obtaining exclusive content without spending a good sum of cache for rewards that are no different than store bought content. Second instance of burnout is having to keep up with the pacing of updates to the game. The patch cycles are okay but the fact that new champions are still being pumped out basically makes this game a full time job for anyone strictly playing this game F2P. Having to obtain 7200 BE for a new champ is already hard enough with the BE nerfs when Hextech Crafting came out. Finally I think my last example of experiencing LoL burnout was simply from the lack of variety in what you can do in LoL. I know this isn't some Minecraft clone or some Early Access 'Open World MMO' but I'd like to at least have different maps to play on that AREN'T just SR and HA. I absolutely hate that champions can ONLY accel in SR and no other Game Mode. It creates an intangible hierarchy of champs that are allowed to be good and champs that will stay shit. Perhaps it would be too big of a balancing nightmare? But whose fault was it to add champ after champ into the game every 2 weeks in season 2? The game just gets too stale honestly. 146 Champs in the game but only ever see like 50? Maybe? Map changes are just a bandage to the problem that there are too many champs to choose from in a map that literally only accommodates 10 and will only allow those 50 or so to thrive.
: How Can I Optimize League to Run on My PC?
I think of the solutions that are present for the problem you've mentioned is 1 of 2 things: 1) Keep your laptop, invest in an external monitor and DIY external graphics card setup which might as well bring you to the next solution 2) Get a new laptop entirely. Your CPU and RAM are still good enough for League but they're hardware from 2012, it's probably time for an upgrade. I think you've done all you could for the hardware you have atm. Which is good but they do have their absolute limits in the world of fast-paced and ever growing tech.

Good question, never have. A friend of mine, however, did anyways since they play this game on and off every 4 to 6 months and wouldn't notice if the skin was gone or not after the rental.
: can we talk about Vlad for a second?
No talk about Vlad! Pyke and Senna ~~discussions~~ rantz only! jk. But for sure facing him in lane is a total pain the ass. He's one of those champions that stay in lane almost indefinitely after a certain level or after purchasing a certain item. Then once Vlad gets cozy, you're having to play catchup and keep away after buying an Executioner's Calling. To me, he's one of those champs that fall under the radar despite having a really strong kit. If the other team can't consistently reduce heals on Vlad OR if Vlad's team is loaded with some extra heals then Vlad becomes a champion that becomes very difficult to deal with in later stages of the game.

Too much pressure in "having" to gank lanes. I try my best to oblige even in the worse conditions if I feel it's the best action to take at that moment. It's a really under appreciated role and the only times you are praised is for helping lanes win or successfully smiting Drake/Baron. Not that I require praise to play well but it's a damn shame to play an entire game knowing your success is based off the success of other lanes and dragon. Didn't help get first blood? "lmao gg ez jungle diff", Didn't smite the drake on time? "lmao gg ez jungle diff", Didn't gank top at all despite having mid and jungle win? "lmao gg ez jungle diff" No one gets shit on more than the jungler.

koshkyra (NA)
: Riot is sacrificing the identity of the support role to make it more “fun” and appealing.
This is a knee jerk reaction to Senna and putting more blame onto Pyke and dismissing the fact that players made shit like this happen by playing mages into support. 'Damage supports' have been in the game since Season 1. Annie, Nunu, Fiddlesticks, Zyra, or any mage that made mad use of Spellthiefs are essentially 'Damage supports.' Heck, Sona and Soraka were notorious damage dealing supports and they were made specifically to be supports! Sona Q harass has got to have been the most annoying basic ability to deal with in lane since her debut. And hello!? Old Soraka Starfall from season 1 and 2? That shit didn't even need to target and it even shredded MR! Supports shouldn't have to be stuck to a single trope of 'I just wanna help and protect my allies.' That's a terrible one-way method of thinking how things should be. If that were the case, then why isn't my Soraka initiating fights for me? She should be protecting me after all? Why isn't Leona healing me? She's a support so she must be a healer right? As more and more champions are added to the game, the lines between each role blurs. If a champions were to be put into a color palette, you should expect to see a rainbow of colors, not 6 distinct blocks of a single color.
: Riot Meddler, Scruffy, and Reav3s Continue to Ignore Karma
Like a lot of champions before her, she just finds funny ways to seep into the meta with dozens of FotM builds. This is typically caused by what's accessible outside of her kit - Runes/Keystones, Luck/Procs, Summoner Spells, Item Abilties. Those, I would confidently say, are what affected her to be nerfed/buff/changed to what she is now. She is ultimately the result of all the external changes to items, runes, and keystones. The way she is now, I think she's fine the way she is now. I'm certain next season will provide Karma an arsenal of game changing gimmicks that can cause more upsets in the future. As any champion main, just play to enjoy the champion, even with their imperfections. Being <50% WR / PR doesn't necessarily mean they're in a bad state. It just means they're not preferred or doing well to changes happening to the game.
: Hey folks. Sorry for the frustration around that feature. We're discussing what the best options are to get a toggle that allows you to go back to the default music. I'll keep you posted :)
Can something like this be extended to some default features of skins that change the music at the beginning of the match? Like SG and PROJECT: Personally I thought they were BA them for the first time of the day, maybe weeks since the last time I played the skin. But after playing a game over and over with the same skin it sometimes DOES get on my nerves hearing, 'OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH oooooooooo AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHWWW!!! OoooOOOOWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHWUHUHHAHHH!!!~ <3' for 2 or 3 minutes when I play SG Ezreal.
: "Feedback" haha!
When I think about the community wanting *strategic thinking* I remember back to my ranked games where everything was set up to a 1 top 4 bottom split push to teleport. Ah yes, those were the good old days. Days where I thought very hard about my strategies. Only for the one fucker to not actually teleport when we needed them! What good was using a strategy if no one is gonna go through with it? It's only good for coordinated play. If you're in solo queue no one is going to want listen to you. People want to play as if it were a solo game. Why? Because 'solo' queue. It means it should be played solo right? And who wants to interact with assholes on the internet? Save yourself the trouble and '/mute all'. That's what it comes down to. Players won't play a team game unless they take the time to know each other. When it comes to solo queue, which is what a majority of the players that play this game will do, they don't give a fuck about teamwork. They just want to win and blame anyone that makes a mistake.

I've found that to be annoying too. Especially when using Kleptomancy since your champions inventory ends up piling in a lot of consumables. My advice is the pre-populate slots you can't realistically reach in a short amount of time. To me this is putting any starter items or boots in slots 5 and 6 so I have slots 1-4 ready to be populated with items. I also think you can determine where your prefer your items using the 'items list' feature by selecting one item, giving it a preference, and assign it to all champions. Of course that overrides a lot of the recommendations you may like to have but 'items list' is certainly a tool you could leverage to remedy the problem you're facing.

: Riot should just embrace Teleport
Would really be interesting what players would come up with building their Summoners to NOT include Teleport or Flash and instead relegate the need for Flash or Teleport onto boots as a unique enhancement. Certainly there will come to points in the game where either Flash or Teleport will be favored over the other. But also there's the idea with champs with innate gap closers that rival Flash may come off as annoying or near OP.

: Proposed Rules Update to Gameplay Sub-Board (Feedback Wanted)
the Gameplay Don'ts: > - DON'T JUST CALL FOR A REVERSION > - DON'T JUST LIST OR COMPARE THINGS WITHOUT CONTEXT are fantastic rules. The Gameplay board frontpage is often cluttered with these topics that ultimately fall off after 1 or 2 comments. Rarely there's indepth discussion you can find a nugget worth of takeaways if you tried sifting through it. Most of it isn't backed up by any other context besides an OP.GG link. I don't know how: > - DON'T REPORT THINGS SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU DISAGREE WITH THEM will be regulated or kept to a minimum. I think disgruntled haters and players are going to do that anyways. So unless there's an internal change to the board that LIMITS the amount of reports a reader can make per day then there isn't much to stopping hate-reports.
: Which of the 2 champions who need to be in the VGU list the "most" after Fiddlesticks and Volibear?
I agree with Dr. Mundo needing VGU attention the most after Fiddle and Voli. Next would be Udyr. But that's a train wreck all on it's own. I think Shyvana and Skarner are alright aesthetically atm as they were released somewhere towards Season 2 where most champs followed a standard of champion design outside of the cartoon-y 'WoW' look. I think every tiny champion or Yordle-like champ could really use smoother animations like what Shaco got. Veigar, Amumu, Ziggs, Teemo, and Kennen are so stiff in movement compared to Gnar, Tristana, and Poppy. Olaf, Trydamere, Blitzcrank, Malphite could use some loving too. Their designs are on the verge of sticking out like sore thumbs if you compare their looks to more recent champs.
Mr Tyson (NA)
: According to op.gg, there are only 1,181 players in Iron rank
I think these tiers are made to offset the potential inflation of players getting into Diamond+. Afterall, you could keep increasing how many tiers there are between Diamond and Challenger, but that also opens windows for more players from Diamond 4 to move up to a rank they may or may not have been eligible to be in simply because more headroom was allowed by opening up, GrandMasters per se, allowing 100 players, potentially, to move forward from Masters, then Diamond I into Masters, then Diamond II in I, III into II, IV into III, and so on, without effort. Having Iron more or less negates this potential flow and forces players into claiming their spots into Grandmasters, etc. I could be wrong of course. That's just my theory on why Iron has to exist.
: Why is URF or AURF the only game mode that gets brought back?
It's because OF ALL THE ROTATING GAME MODES, (AR)URF were the only ones that pulled in recurring players, even after daily missions. Meaning, without an incentive to play the RGM like mission rewards, players continued to play it until the event for it was over. There's a Nexus Post for it somewhere. It was pretty recent too. Like August of this year.

Like how common is that for them to happen in order to be considered a part of Penakill? It's just a fictional band name derived from a League of Legends term. Since when did band names need to incorporate people with backgrounds that relate to their bands namesake?

Totally. When shopping for these kinds of things, take some time to check out the VIDEO/GRAPHICS CARD in action on YouTube. Thankfully, people out there operate these very unique and niche chipsets on realistic gaming scenarios, like gaming LoL, OW, WoW, FF14, GTAV. A quick Google Search yielded that the chipset on the laptop you're talking is more than sufficient to play LoL. Namely since this is a game from the 2009 era of videos games. Despite what all the haters on the boards say, LoL has undergone PLENTY of graphical performance optimizations since its debut.
