: Anyone miss the fact you could grind out LP
i get like 800 be for level up it feels really low, there is not even chance to get permanent champions from these capsules in the game with 100+ champions it feels greedy like hell.

The sale numbers alone aren't enough. This is actually in a financial report. Despite how many copies COD 4 sold, the game is a mediocre success for Activision and their investors.

(wtf x2). in Hots you have hundreds of beautiful hero icons for free, here i can't even pickup a icon of hero i'm playing. mastery in LoL should just unlock master hero profile icon for free like in Hots also in LoL you have basically pay for recollor skins. every account level in ow is lootbox, i even had 3 legendary skins in a row in ow when opening lootboxes, free lootboxes during events etc but is impossible in LoL to get even simplest skin when i played a week. hell if you have honor 4 in ow you get like 4 lootboxes free every week. probably also ow costed more to produce with less characters than LoL as whole, because of quality of animation and graphic.

They're not gonna do that. yeah they are greedy company compared to competitors at this point but they can be as long people will support them and i'm sure some people or rather kids using their allowance will still buy these 100+ usd skins because they don't have contact with reality. once again you saw LoL legacy skins? like for example: 2 olaf skins, 2 malzahar skins, 2 shen skins, kog'maw skin... is just recolors i have them all, skin is just 1 image file is really easy to change color of let's say character 'jacket' and call it 'yellow shen jacket', maybe month of work for professional to make variety of recolors for 100 champions.

HOTS has different color palettes for each hero for free. you don't even have idea how it's easy to change colors of skins in photoshop, especially for outdated engine that LoL uses, i used to make a lot of recolors for old games. i dislike most of LoL skins because make characters look either out of place, full fanservice or are dumb memes but i would like option of different colors of default skin, that imo is the best.
: PSA: Coloring something brass doesn't make it worth actual gold.
color variety for default skin should be free as well.
: Need Tips
lore could be a good indicator what character you would like to play, even though is moba is still based on roleplaying rts warcraft III.

: Riot Avoiding Criticism
obviously the money they ask for few pixels of the archaic engine the game is running on, is absurd. but they still will make money on the no life addicts to the game who can't see it, is how all these chinese mmo work too. in ow you just buy a game once and can get tons of hd skins for playing.

udyr+Innervating Locket was pretty broken, jax with passive stuns, tf with global ult. still no match for todays nuke meta.
: Are riot trying to piss us off and make us leave the game?
i believe matchmaking would need rework too, played today 8 draft games with ok kda ratio and can't even finish first win of the day quest, yet probably riot is thinking how to nerf the essence rewards. one game was against zed 30/10... yesterday i was teemo 20/3 here is really something seriously wrong with mmr pairing.

but can you ask your opponents to report someone who is afk in your team after a game? > [{quoted}](name=The Djinn,realm=NA,application-id=yrc23zHg,discussion-id=gEGGHY00,comment-id=0006,timestamp=2019-01-11T00:20:13.028+0000) > > If you had a recent 14-day ban, then score-shaming (0/3), perfomance-shaming ("u fed him good"), and insulting ("cuz u're bad," "toxic kid," "10 yo") will get you banned, yes. This behavior is not okay. but what if that pantheon player really behaved like immature and toxic, judging a few lines of log out of context and ignoring all involved circumstances, is not okay too imo. i really hope here is more of real toxicity though and want to believe it wasn't the only thing that get him banned.
: Riot is planning on letting people keep the 1 BE Capsules and the loot from them
well i remember people exploited stuff in dota 2 during events too, they then sold the stuff in steam market for gaben dollars, i did it too in dota 2 and make on it about 30 euros, valve did nothing about it so yeah. although this one was more like gameplay exploit than actual store exploit but there was these type of exploits in dota 2 as well after i stopped playing for a while though. like unlimited cosmetic item lottery and such. so these things happen in multiplayer games all the time. > [{quoted}](name=Best Ryze NA,realm=NA,application-id=yrc23zHg,discussion-id=4s6RbN1Y,comment-id=0001000000000000,timestamp=2019-01-11T02:44:06.529+0000) > > I wouldn't be surprised if more people quit because of this, it definitely feels like I've wasted all the money I've spent on this game since some people can just get them for free what if i told you that skins in this game are worth nothing? you can't trade them or anything, so no actual value, the only value is supporting company with money but otherwise paying for skin as for product is ripoff as the price>quality is not really worth it. same can say people who bought for example digital dark souls II/III during release date for full price and later publishers decided to put it in humble monthly bundle almost for free, considering there was also other games + share to charity.
: Remember when the most expensive thing in the store was an Ultimate skin
i remember when i was buying skins in this game, as i bought about 40 legacy skins but the amount of fanservice in this game now is tasteless. basically, no lore oriented new skins, that only slightly alter base character model that i would like.
: The game is meant to look good, so should the characters.
i like actually how blizzard sometimes reflects more ordinary people look, for example mei in ow is fat or "curvy", same about alexstrasza in hots you can see the sexy fat layers but it's very uncommon in other games. no wonder people want to have more natural look characters that they can identify with, not just plastic surgery superstars. but i must say that taliyah and illaoi faces in LoL looks pretty unique and nice.
: Prison rats
maybe it's rats size of twitch and his cuffs give him poison resist
: Sylas = Soul Reaver
but raziel was really skinny, so i would never thought. i'm thinking that new hero in Hots imperius, resambles soul reaver 2 with his pike "impalement" mechanic.
: For those of you asking why Sylas is buff...
maybe "the prison" was in fact some pleasure dungeon, you know some erotic game, after all lux is involved in this. as he would have to be served with rice and chicken daily to look that good.
Myrmiron (EUW)
: PSA: Bloodmoon Aatrox looks hideous ingame, don't get mislead by his sweet splash art!
It was always this way with the skins. basically, when you are buying skin in this game, is like you are paying for splash art and some ability effects. if they showed actual models instead of arts in store they would lose a lot of sales. i wonder if commissioned art costs more than actual skin model.
: Firecracker sejuani SERIOUSLY needs more muscle definition.
it's like betrayal to people who like character for what it is, as skin is turning it into something completely different. if someone play this character because likes muscular women, he would be disappointed, because he would have to pass on this skin.
KnifeCat (OCE)
: Sylas might be the biggest balance nightmare in the history of League
what balancing? if everything can one shot you then is no balance at all, that why the game is balanced because here is no balance at all. only difference is how much effort it requires like 1 button one shot or just mashing buttons.
: A legit ban. No sarcasm. Just wanted to share.
i dont think riot cares tbh, they have millions of players and unlike in other mobas they don't need to care that much to maintain their playerbase, as they probably consider it anyway to be 50% of toxic flies unworthy of their godly game. have you tired to contact support?
: "if sylas is a prisoner why is he buff and attractive?"
oh yeah https://pm1.narvii.com/5964/9dec9ba6280f896100a8d0188743059bb6155761_hq.jpg

: New Champion is literally Rubick lmao
All companies copy each other, is the part of the business and evolution such as new technology syping etc. Blizzard copy LoL and vice versa. like i played LoL since beta, here was also Diablo III beta going on and then right after in LoL lee sin and vayne appeared, coincidence? ofc not, they were inspired by diablo, especially vayne, as her tumble resambles a lot demon hunters in diablo universe. Here is also nautilus, obviously bioshock, cho'gath spawn, kai'sa is funny one, like mix of many anime characters such as metroid, iria, guyver and even gundam qubeley. Warcraft III and Starcraft based on Warhammer universe/40k, dune, aliens, predators and such. All popular franchises based heavily on Lovecraft stories, malzahar=Abdul Alhazred, Illaoi, Blizzard yogg saron and so on. Blizzard copied swim pool party skins, toy skins and a lot of stuff too, both from Dota and LoL, like kog'maw ult on chromie or terrorblade ult on mal'ganis, diablo III butcher = pudge hook from dota as abominations never used hook to pull is was unique mechanic to the dota. Dota also compied Hots with the talents system and aghanim ultimate "hybrid" enchancement for morphling is abathur basically. hell, LoL even took inspiration from that archaic moba, HoN at the time, dark lady ultimate > nocturne ultimate. every company just want you to be addicted to their game, the bigger is playerbase the more money they make, so just don't be fooled as life is too short to waste your time only on one game.

: Why I think Riot should put around a 90% focus on reworks and 10% on new champions
i haven't played game for many years but sitll people most likely pick beta/early champs. the newest champs mechanics are complicated but they want to come up with something fresh, so that's good about it. for example i always wanted "shopkeeper" hero in mobas, ornn is closest to it. only downside is, that these complicated new champs can be very confusing for new players and difficult to play. i have feeling the "upgrading/evolving ability" or "duo champs" can be inspired by HOTS. in HOTS you dont have items only talents that you pick when you level up that enhances your main abilities, instead of releasing characters like this, they could just make dota aghanim item for LoL. also Hots had hero you have to play as two and it was somehow innovative in mobas as i never seen it before.
: A legit ban. No sarcasm. Just wanted to share.
and what you exactly did to get banned? feeded intentionally? i don't see any toxicity here tbh, you can't just state facts in this game? i would get pissed as well, if someone banned hero i highlighted in select screen and later refused to teamwork because he dislikes my pick.
: You made this champion as Socialist as you possibly could
You need to read some serious economists if you believe that capitalism is not viable. For example, Rothbard or Hans Hoppe. Also early anarchists criticized marx for etatism.
: Can you guess the champ only seeing this items?
: Riot's at it again! Blatant over the top sexualized champion! Sylas the Magic of Hunky Studs
I want old default evelynn skin, that what i call oversexualized that had to be censored.
: If Sylas is busted, annoying, or frustrating in any sort of way, remember - Riot isn't to blame
: CHANGE NEXUS BLITZ BACK!! Let us choose any champion!!!
yeah it would be better to test new champ here than in default modes or vs ai, as ai is just pure stomp without team fights.
Velgam (NA)
: Just Stack armour!!!
Isn't mundo more tanky than malphite?
: Can you report people for constantly spamming pings on you?
oh ok then, that explains why people now abuse it. it can be also hard to detect by system, if you really ping someone because hes in danger etc. but here is also red danger ping for that. the way people abuse "pinging you" is really rude. in heroes of the storm people usually do that when they are muted and cant type anything but here it looks like they are scared to talk but still want to act bad mannered way.
: please add mcree to LoL
i hate overwatch characters in HOTS as the game is much slower than LoL but the OW characters have insane mobility.
: What culture do the Blood Moon skins relate to?
Japanese some yokai inspired maybe.
Rioter Comments
: Can Riot add a setting that disables chat?
The moba i was mostly playing last years is Hots and it in fact has the option to disable chat or pings, moreover it doesn't have chat with opponents. And what is the biggest problem in Hots you guess? the lacks of communication. People complain that in the team based competitive game, communication is important part, they even want chat with the enemies. If you disable all comm it makes the game basically single player experience.
hoganftw (NA)
: I miss Old Sion sometimes.
Played him a bit, engage>stun+bubble>whack whack>disengage and wait for cds. But i must admit, his stun animation was the lamest thing in LoL, it was just like taken from dota 1 and pasted. They changed it later to "fire bolt" i guess but initially it looked like a purple spit.
: almost 5k hrs and still dont have all the champs
Where i can check time played in LoL?
