And that's not what IGN says either. > The bans are user-based, so if any person who's been booted attempts to trick the game by rejoining with a smurf, it won't work. The system blacklists phone numbers associated with their accounts. This isn't saying smurfing is a bannable offense, this is saying that if you are already banned, you can't evade it by making a new smurf without a new phone number. If you go look at the link I posed, here's what Valve has to say regarding smurfs: > Smurfs > ==== > > We recognize that recently there has been an increase in smurf accounts. We share the sentiments the community has expressed on this issue and we consider it a high priority for us to solve as well. There isn’t a single solution that can address this issue easily, but we hope that a combination of multiple different changes over time will reduce the negative impacts and frequency of it. > > The first change in this area is the usage of phone number verification. We’ve found a loophole that allowed a large number of users to play ranked without a unique phone number attached. We have fixed this bug and any user that does not have their account set up correctly will be prevented from queuing until it is resolved. This will also affect accounts that have been actively playing in ranked matchmaking, rather than just new accounts going forward. > > We are also changing the mechanism to grant Ranked access. Rather than a fixed number of games, we are changing the metric to be a time based one and increased that amount to 100 hours of playtime. Any users that already have access to ranked without meeting this requirement will be removed from ranked until they’ve played enough time. > > Our general approach to Smurfs is to try to get accounts that are performing higher than expected to their correct rank faster. The first change on this axis is to adjust MMR by more than just +/- 25 when we detect that a user has been clearly over performing (based on how the played heroes usually perform at a given rank). This will be an ongoing process as we get better at detecting this, but from the data analysis we’ve done so far, we think we can make some progress using this. This change will be silent for a few days as we verify the detection mechanism is working as intended, and will be enabled once that is verified. The other change we are making is how we calibrate the initial ranked MMR for new accounts entering ranked. Leveraging the new hours played gate we are adding for ranked access, we will be using your account’s historical performance more aggressively to place you into a more accurate initial rank. In the past we introduced a really low cap on initial rank, we think that was a mistake on our part, because it caused smurfs to unnecessarily impact a large volume of games before arriving at a closer-to-accurate rank. > > Moving forward, we will be spending more time on live detection of smurfing and boosting behaviors. This will hopefully allow us to put detected accounts into an aggressive recalibration, resulting in a much quicker adjustment to an accurate MMR while reducing the number of games that are ruined in the process. In addition to this aggressive recalibration, we’ll also be detecting and banning accounts for egregious boosting or exploiting of game mechanics. No bans for smurfing

This includes not having their client installed or even downloading freebies from them (sadly can't say that about the account as I already have one).

: dota dishs out 19 year bans
They're not banning smurfs; they're tying bans to phone numbers. http://blog.dota2.com/2019/09/matchmaking-update-for-the-next-ranked-season/ This is really the only thing they're doing different than league. Mandating phone number verification is an interesting topic and it would help greatly with keeping permabanned players from coming back, but that has drawbacks that Riot may not be willing to take. I think Riot will eventually roll out mandatory phone number verification for ranked, but it won't be happening until they're happy with how clash works.

Because one staff member can click the button and ban a player, but the tribunal requires multiple reviews. > Programming a game mode that organized a tournament on its own is a lot different than adding a program like the Tribunal. Actually yes. Anyone can make an automated tournament system, just as anyone can make a tribunal-like system. Clash has had issues because running the system at scale has proved to be difficult. Considering the number of cases a tribunal system would need to process, scaling would be a huge factor, and writing software that scales is a big problem in programming. Oh and I didn't mention the boards as another boondoggle, but they're a perfect example of half-baked riot projects. > The reason to participate is just to clean the community, that's literally the best way. You shouldn't look for encouraging others to join when they don't want to, that's how you ruin a project. And that doesn't fucking work. Riot already tried it and it failed. > You're confusing ban waves with systematic bans. Basically if I knew you were going to be banned December 12th because I had definite proof you used scripts, and then let you purchase. If you buy RP and then 2 days later I find out about it, the ban is free. Riot implements a system to permaban players that they know will be much slower in reacting. That's liability. When issuing permabans, Riot needs to send them out as fast as they can, otherwise they open themselves up to lawyers claiming that the slower permabans are to milk more money out of players that will be banned. Also you're ignoring the data protection aspect. Riot definitely had an issue with provate data getting posted in chat with the old tribunal. With new data protection laws in Europe this problem gets even nastier. Take off your nostalgia glasses. Riot killed the tribunal because it failed. You've offered no real concrete reasons for why it would work better now. Adding replays is irrelevant because you need to have players participating review multiple cases, and reviewing replays takes time, so either you lower your review rate or see the replays get ignored. Expecting players to participate more because they "care about the community" is just wishful thinking. Yes, a greater number of players care about the community now, but that's only because the community itself is bigger.

SEKAI (OCE)
: So long you don't play League in highly open and compromised network, or through things like internet cafe that's rife with keylogging risks, for the very most part your account security isn't even a concern. Riot's security measures is pretty generic in terms of video game account management, and it's not like all the accounts in the world have been compromised or something so it's definitely working for the very most part. I have been playing the game for 9 years. Though I did change the password once because all my passwords for everything were the same before and I had to go through all my services and change my passwords one by one into more unique ones (these days I just do semi-random passwords and save it onto my harddrive somewhere to copy paste when I need it). But for the very most part, I am almost never concerned about my account security and nothing has happened. And let's be real, no one would use something that can guess your password, however complex, in 5 seconds just to play on your game account. They'd be using that on the banks, not some video game account that doesn't even have things like Valve's marketplace. At best they stole your details to sell it (needless to say, account selling is also illegal to Riot's ToS) in blackmarket for 5 dollars each, and you bet they won't put any more effort than setting up keyloggers on machines in internet cafe and leveling up botted accounts.

I don't know), they could at least argue that new information is being added, provided they actually do that. However, they do this with every subject, which is bullshit. It's more of a distinction of what level the class is getting taught at. Astronomy is indeed a pretty dynamic field, however it's also very large. So if you've got an intro course, there's so much material to cover that you aren't going to go in depth to many areas. This means that the textbook content winds up being fairly static. On the other hand, once you get down into the weeds, it's very dynamic (for example take mars research - two decades ago research into the planet was mostly limited to remote observation and short-lived landers; fast forward a decade and you have many texts published that go in depth about the planet).
: why do college proffesors assign books they wrote?
The one time I had this happen, the professor offered a pdf of the preprint to everyone for free and supported both the dead tree edition and the free preprint pdf (and the print version was a very reasonable $70). There's nothing inherently bad about a professor assigning their own textbook; it's only unethical when the professor assigns it for self-gain.

If you saw some kid running around a store putting their hands on many different surfaces then putting them in their mouth would you tell them not to do that because they may get sick? Teaching children that they shouldn't do stuff like suck on their shoes and that they should wash their hands after going out in public is called parenting. If you are not the kid's parent, then it is not your place to talk to the kid. Period. If you really feel something is deficient, then you talk to the parent. Sticking a shoe in your mouth is not like running out in traffic.

GD is for discussion, which does not automatically exclude posting videos. The only time I have seen the mods take action against people posting videos was back when political posts were allowed. There was one guy constantly linking his bait videos and doing nothing more. Imo Nubrac is getting pretty close to that threshold as his interactions here have gotten less and less.

: League Just Posted a Video About the Game Not Being Pay to Win
A game being pay to win means you get a significant competitive advantage from spending money. Riot has admitted that their monetization strategy revolves around getting players to buy champions with RP, however that does not make league p2w. General consensus on how to climb the ladder the fastest is to one-trick a single champion, which means that the number of champions you own has a limited impact on how well you do. Therefore someone spending real money on champions won't be better off than someone who doesn't. Riot also removed probably the most p2w element in the game, the old rune system, as in that case having more rune pages was a significant advantage. The only p2w elements that exist are skins with visibility issues, and Riot at least tries to fix these when they actually appear to provide a benefit (and even then the benefits from most of them are minimal).

Football: guy is in the way, so you push him out of the way. Soccer: guy is in the way, so you go around. Contact that does not arise from fighting for the ball is penalized. I played football in middle school. It was flag football, so we weren't allowed to tackle, but contact was still allowed. I had a teammate that made it his goal to send someone flying each game, and as long as the hit was according to regulations it was perfectly allowed. You can't do that in soccer.

Ignore the guy you're responding to. If you follow his advice you will be stuck with an unhealthy mentality and the game never will feel fun. Nobody ever gets better by spamming games mindlessly; instead you should try to identify something you feel you did well with every game, as well as something to improve on. As you say you're new, probably one of the first things you should do is to go watch high elo players to see what you are doing right. Honestly people like to meme about how copying LCS is shitty, but you can pick up a ton of game knowledge fast if you actually watch pro play. You get to learn popular champion mechanics, as well as get a general idea of what champions might be strong. For example someone in your position can benefit heavily from seeing where and when pros ward, as well as jungle pathing. Using that as your foundation, try to apply it to your own play. You're not going to be able to achieve their level of performance, but you don't need to; good enough is your friend. However if I was to have one piece of advice, it would be to stick to one role. Don't try to play everything; have one champion for each role that you can play in a pinch, and then just focus on one. Then based off your preferred primary role, pick your secondary. For example I'm a tank/bruiser main toplaner, so I play jungle secondary as I have champion and playstyle overlaps.

Anyone who says gay isn't a slur when used in a negative fashion is either willfully ignorant or straight up lying. Historically, "gay" can be thought to be a synonym of happy. I'm not sure of how it got associated with homosexuality, but at some point it did and thus "gay" gained an alternate definition. Then due to societal views on homosexuality, "gay" became negative. You didn't want to be outed as "gay" because that was a bad thing. Thus the usage of "gay" as a negative term is inherently a slur because it relies on the negative historical connotations of homosexuality to be negative.

You know what I'm saying? You don't see targeted attacks steal credentials via installing malware. I also haven't heard of any keylogger specifically trying to harvest league credentials. The vast majority of account breaches are due to password reuse. After that it would be from a hacker dumping a database, then weak credentials, and then credentials harvested off of user machines.
