: In Diamond, people know how to close out games. Matches often end within 25 minutes there, and there's basically no hope of a comeback. Don't say that you can just "suck it up" and get a comeback. It doesn't work like that past Platinum. I want to lead off with stating that I frequently watch old LCS matches and am incredibly excited for things such as League of Memories. The game has been easily my favorite over so much time, but it's turned into such an amalgamate of horrible balancing, overloaded champion releases, and refusal to listen to the community (which they HAVE done in the past, mind you; the boards and Reddit have acted as a place for the players to voice their opinions and Riot used to listen, or at the very least respond) that the game has just been deformed into this game of chicken where no one wants to take action because it's just going to royally fuck them if they're at even the most remote of a disadvantage. Then came along reworks that had hurt a lot of the playerbase due to the refusal to maintain identities or forced them into another role and Riot had really started digging themselves a grave. {{champion:104}} {{champion:266}} {{champion:3}} {{champion:41}} {{champion:39}} {{champion:43}} {{champion:96}} {{champion:7}} {{champion:76}} {{champion:14}} {{champion:98}} {{champion:107}} {{champion:50}} {{champion:6}} {{champion:83}} All of these champions have received some form of change (whether it was reverted or not) that moved their role they'd be balanced around (such as Graves from ADC to the Jungle; don't even say that Lucian is the "other Graves," I assure you they were very much different) or were changed so greatly that they are now unrecognizable. Does this mean that these champions are bad or unfun? No, I actually enjoy a lot of them. Does this still negatively impact a large amount of people because their champion that they've enjoyed has been removed? Definitely. Galio, Sion, and Aatrox were so greatly changed that they could've been marketed as new champion releases and no one would've noticed. Aatrox is hardly auto reliant now. Galio used to have this somber personality and played passively but could hard engage and tank as an AP carry, and his kit has been changed into a competitive powerhouse. Sion used to be a walking meme machine that no one knew what the most effective build even was on him, now to be a brute that slams into people with telegraphed damage and CC (again, I note that reworked Sion is one of my favorite champions, but I had played the old one previously). This is what has angered a lot of the playerbase. Riot promises to maintain the core identity of a champion, then goes and makes a rework like Sion, Aatrox, or Galio. Onto balance. Towers are squishier the further into the enemy base you are, super minions are a nuisance and can take out a tower and then some if left alone (they should do this, but not off of one wave) due to XP advantage buffs on them, towers provide no protection (what happened to that tier 2 shield on the towers from Season 5? That would be perfect right now), damage has skyrocketed due to keystones acting as a secondary passive, with runes not being as malleable (you wanted to start with some additional armor or magic resist to lane against your opponent? Sucks for you), and I could go on and on about so many things that have accumulated over the past few years that have had such detrimental effects on this game. Is the game still enjoyable? Sure, sometimes. The games that are evenly matched and last to 40 minutes feel super refreshing and enjoyable, whereas the 25 minute stomps are headache inducing. Fast metas are a pain in the ass because you get things like Dr. Mundo just running over everyone and there's not much you can do about it. This game is a lot more fun when you aren't forced into a loss at 20 minutes because the enemy team can just burn through a baron after one teammate got killed and push mid lane with the buff to end. Sincerely, 6th year veteran that strictly refuses to surrender. {{champion:3}}
Thanks for the input veteran. Respectable. And thank you for not surrendering! Down in my ranks people ff all the time. I've come back from so many games. Coming from a competitive (IRL) background, you can't just quit in the middle of a soccer match so that shit doesn't compute to me at all. So many babies playing this and i hate that they added the 15 min ff. Haven't we all come back from all inhibs down and NONE of their towers down, you D-up hunker down and come back. I've done it time and time again. Regardless of all the other stuff, that is the biggest turn off I see from this community. No one allows for the exciting games because they BELIEVE the meta is too powerful or they BELIEVE they're too far behind. But there is EARLY MID AND LATE game. All which leaguers are all different skill levels at. One may be good early but sucks mid and late game. Etcetcetc. {{champion:3}}

Still, Riot is a Business first. They may ultimately do what gives them highest profit. that such a cruddy statement and those kind of catch-all excuse blanket statements are how you get AWFUL companies like EA games. If you keep your customers happy then YOU will be happy and prosperous. Great game = more players enjoying the game more players enjoying the game = more cash flowing. The entire reason we have gotten to this point is because Riot has a lack of endgame vision and are instead opting to "go with the flow" over and over again churning out meaningless changes that disguises core problems instead of fixing them. No one ever dug down into the nitty gritty and started fixing things. Just adding more and more "awesome" stuff to keep the players interested and LoL competing with the up and coming young bucks. https://i.ytimg.com/vi/TkdP-Xp0N6o/hqdefault.jpg _ "People often ask for a hero, when a villain is what they truly need."_
You just said 'lack of endgame vision'. Do you not see where your thinking is completely opposite of what LOL is? I think you need to take a chill pill bro. You're old news, washed up. LOL is still one of the biggest games in the world. No game can appeal to every individual bb. They also are not trying to appeal to you individual. And if you haven't watched the same videos and hosts, and stat updates, I actually do believe riot loves gaming and tries new stuff with 'cool shit' in mind and for the better. If ya don't see that then go play another game, maybe it didn't take the direction you wanted it to, right? We'll hold down the rift for you old solider, ya done well. {{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}}
: dear mr riot, in 8 years of playing game quality has never been so low
games decided in 15 minutes because ALL OF YOU FF at 15. Everyone gives up. You wanna come back, then you focus and play a 30 min game. But 90% of EVERY LEAGUE player is going to give up if the team has even a MEDIUM SIZE lead at 7 min...15 min. Then ya ff. You the players make the game shitty. sincerely 2nd year noob. Suck it up and lose at the end of the game or come back.{{champion:3}}

Yeah i guess, i'm you know,,,not too salty but was in a ranked match, and seems kind of small to order a EMERGENCY SHUT DOWN OF SERVER. Clash isn't even until THE WEEKND bruh. Hm. Could have waited till tomorrow and said THESE TIMES WE'LL BE SHUT DOWN. But i read that it will be going on until june 1st? which is hard to believe

: It's all about who is THE MOST HONORABLE.. It isn't about who was cool or fun to play with. Who did you enjoy playing with THE MOST out of the 4 others on your team?? That's what this honor system is all about.
is it, Ztoka, is it {{sticker:sg-lulu}}
: Can we go back to honoring EVERYONE again?
I would still prefer to save honors till after we all talk in the after screen lol! Also my computer is so slow half of the people are gone by the time i load in...potato
: What if you can earn 2 honor points per game, but can save up to 10. You can still honor 1 person per game as normal, but if you encounter a really good group you can dip into the reserves to honor more people.
Me no like idea of reserve honor..
Wolfeur (EUW)
: Being able to honor everyone makes honor meaningless. It comes back to the old system. Honor has no value if it's not limited. So no
Wow thanks riot... lol ? More than one person can be honorable and you also DON'T HAVE TO honor everyone. But for those games when everyone plays outstanding, those are the games we want to honor everyone, and even our enemies for not giving up during a stomp etc. So yes {{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}}

But seriously, can't stand all ya'll toxic people. Ruin the game. I make friends with everyone, but TOXIC people are the ONLY thing that tilts me. Buzz off.

: Well I think it is different for each case. For me: My account has barely ever had a punishment to it besides 2-3 months ago I had a one bad game and received a 10 game chat restriction. Since then I have been trying to grind to Honor Level 2, it is very difficult, I played over/around 300 games in which I received many honors, got my rewards back, I've gotten a lot of key fragments since then but still Honor Level 1. The grind is just very difficult and now I am locked out of a tournament I have been anticipating for months because of 1 10 game chat restriction... Also I feel like if your playing with a pre-made than why the Honor Level 2 requirement? I understand with a group of randoms but pre-made sounds kind've iffy.
Consequences :) keep it in your pants son. keep it down.

: bet $100 they still won't honor you after the game... happens to me..... a lot. #RespectSupports
Supports don't ask for attention. {{sticker:sona-playing}}
: i will get angry at you 100% of the time if youre fooling around in my ranked game no offense to you Hines57, but youre bronze 3. i have played years to get to the level i am and im trying my damnedest to hit diamond. you might not be able to tell, but at platinum you can EASILY tell when someone is fucking around. bad games aside (which you can also distinguish at my level) if you fuck around and try to lose you deserve all of the rage. not only do you waste at LEAST 30 min of my time (match finding, champ select, 20 min surrender cause they dont do it at 15) but you also strip away my points.
Bros, what you don't understand is, when you smurf, if you have more than one account so many experience players FLAME SO HARD new brand new players and RUIN the future and current LOL. I've reported so many people while smerfing even my own new account. There is NO reason you should be matched up with a bronze or whatever anyways in your ranked game. IF YOU'RE NOT IN RANKED then you're probably in your elo. If you're not in your elo then you're probably on the wrong account or YOU or YOURSELF need removed from the beginner players. Help newer players, don't flame them...Otherwise stay in your ranked elo and keep flaming your teamates. Getting mad just thinking about how much you probably flame. I don't care how good you are, how much damage ya'll do. Get out. Get off.

What this will end up doing is getting Relic Shield nerfed into the ground because fucking ADCs can't keep their grubby hands off of shit. ADCs abusing items by using them inappropriately is how almost every item that isn't AP gets nerfed into oblivion. Yeah, tank supports are going to get fucked because adcs are abusing their items.
It ain't theres. It's a free item to buy for anyyyyone - - - what wins games?{{sticker:katarina-love}}
Dasdi96 (NA)
: Why the fuck are adcs starting relic shield?
I agree and was suprised, (i'm in my first year of league). BUT THIS IS WHAT MAKES LEAGUE SO FRESH AND EXCITING. I don't understand half of the shit and something is always changing slightly, there is nothing completely set. I hated starting out in league when people flamed me for "YOU DON'T DO THAT, YOU'RE A SUPPORT YOU IDIOT" or something other flamey, i'm like bruh....what if I find the magical solution. Which I really haven't but, anyways, it's all interesting and keeps me on my toes. No one says this role has to be the most damage or whatever...a win is a win is a win. And that's what we **ALL** want to do. {{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}}
