: won't the "riot points" be capable of being used on all pc versions of riot games like for the fighting game and shooter in the future?

It may increase their income per person but probably decrease there income in total if they did what you are suggesting. Wild Rift is really intended for less hard gamers anyway, not really the hard core league players. Yes, I agree that getting an app from outside a platform's official marketplace will be beyond most people's interest and patience. However, I think that the additional benefit of not having to get approval from that platform's owner is a major plus that shouldn't be dismissed out of hand. For reference, Android market share is over 60% in the US, over 70% in Europe, and 80-90% worldwide.
But i feel like "benefit of not having to get approval from that platform's owner" can be dismissed.... They aren't gonna have any problem getting these games approved by either apple and google, these are pretty "safe" apps in the eyes of google and apple. Its true that android is 80+% worldwide, but their target audience are more affluent places that would have good enough connection to play these games and be willing to send money on them. I still think if they aren't on the app store and google play store they will end with a fraction the amount of people playing these games and that would make it no where close to being financially worth it. Plus they won't convert people to their other games/platforms as much if they did it.
: I suspect that another, more surreptitious reason for this change is that Riot's mobile game purchases will be more expensive to compensate for Apple's and Google's 30% cuts. The hilarious part is that iOS only has a 15% market share compared to Android's 85%, and it's easy to manually download and run an Android app without getting it from the store, so Riot could just be Android-exclusive and market their games directly from their website, with no third-party fees, approval processes, or other restrictions to worry about. Riot is a huge company and doesn't need to piggyback on someone else's marketplace to get users.
The vast VAST majority of people will not download apps from outside the play store (maybe if its on the galaxy store that could work for samsung phones) no matter what the company making the app is. Plus android is only like 55% in the us and europe (made this number up tbh don't feel like checking).

Kazekiba (NA)
: Interestingly it looks like LoR will eclipse - and possibly kill - TFT. Especially with Disguised Toast, Legends of Runeterra is drawing FAR more viewers than TFT ever did, and it may well keep going as it looks cool as hell to watch. I think if not for Worlds being on, actual LoL would be losing to LoR.
That has a lot to do with it being new and limited, most people interested in it can't play it and can only watch others play it. Also its only going to be open for a few more days, so either play/watch it now or wait. LoR is way way more likely to kill/hurt hearthstone in the long run then LoL or TFT.
sinZsoul (NA)
: Either reread the statement, or read some of the comments, or just read this: Riot needs to do this in order to comply with Google Play.
So did half the people commenting just not read the article, or just have shit comprehension skills? I'm really wondering cause the comments here are really dumb.
: Why not just affix a real world price to every item instead of having currencies at all?
honestly not a terrible idea. I think the reason a lot of game do this is so they can give you "bonuses" when you buy more and also to make sure you always have a little extra to try and convince you to buy more. It also probably has to do with the fact, if you really think about how much you pay for skins (like when you go to buy a skin it says it costs 5 dollars) many people wouldn't do it.
Xedlord (NA)
: What's the point of doing this?
Because the name "riot points" implies that they would work for riot services, which was mostly true until now. Now they only work for league and TFT PC and not all the other new games. This was a good change tbh, have logical branding is a good thing.

KidLink4 (NA)
: Come on. You, me, and everyone else are going to use it. You know that. I know that. All this means is we can get more projects like the K/DA event. People are impatient. Instant login is a good thing. Everyone here just wants to complain about something and that's all there is to it.
shhhh, you can't be exposing everyone like that....
: This "woof woof bark" and "meow meow meow" stuff is stupid
: Riot, I think it's time to move on. Or should I say, move forward.
Ok here's what your gonna do, take new world (amazon's new world if youre trying to look it up) and import all the characters and terrain, would be perfect.
: The exact reward is posted on each game in my match history, including XP from missions, and it isn't effected at all by your horrible can't level up twice rule. All I got for that 55 minute match was a pathetic 140 XP and you fucking know that as much as I do. So save your "oh but you're being a meany" line of shit for the dumbass sheep you herd around, we both know you assholes at Riot made sure this shit happens for whatever braindead reason you came up with around a bong and dart board.

Áery (NA)
: How is it at the expense of another when the majority is already 80%? Just because they tried to make a room to promote their ideas towards a certain group that doesn’t have a big population doesn’t make it sexism.
You realize 613 is the ONLY room there are no other workshops, besides some shitty ass ask riot for an hour. Even if you think this was a good thing to do, people (mostly men) had got tickets to PAX to see riot games and are now banned because they are men. That's fucking stupid, and so shitty especially because it's all a PR move to try and cover up their recent controversy. This is not genuinely being done to help women, it's being done to save face with the female community.
Áery (NA)
: I think Glyph explained it pretty well, everyone here is just overreacting trying to play double standard SJW. Point being said in public events sometimes we split people based on gender, such as sports event, everyone is invited but those whom are playing will most likely be separated on their gender if you were playing say basketball.
They aren't splitting genders, they are literally taking a large part of their content and making it women only to try and cover a scandal. That is extremely sexist.
: The first two events of room 613 will be only open to women and nonbinary folks.(there might be some exceptions. I will try and post on Twitter the sechedule everyday) However, all the activities of the room will be open to all after 3pm, including the "Ask a Rito" time. :D
"All the activities" there is literally just that shitty "ask a Rito" bs for an hour and a half. Just be honest and advertise this as women only so everyone can know how shitty you're being.
: Riot at PAX West
So if your a guy there is no point in going to PAX because basically all of the content is female only. Honestly, hope no one shows up because that's so fucking stupid.
: Ivern in Nexus Blitz
You have to remember this game mode is far from complete, individual changes like are gonna be dealt with much later in development.

: The dust has settled for the Aatrox rework. Here are my thoughts as an Aatrox main.
Bet riot jag isn't gonna retweet this post like how he retweeted doublelift pulling back on his comment that aatrox is riven 2.0. (just for context that comment was just an off hand example DL made in a video and not the point of the video just an example)
: I'll say once again... Feeding =/= inting
I'm still going to report people for giving up and afk farming cause they lost lane or some bullshit. Basically is intention feeding, even if they aren't running it down.

What exactly do you need this massive stockpile of BE for ? Very simple I don't have all the champions , and I would like to have all the champions. This is true for a lot of people, thats why people want champion shards in chests. If you already have all the champions then just get the new masterwork chest, different items for different people its that simple.
: Awesome way to milk more money out of your playerbase instead of just removing totally useless champion shards from normal loot boxes and having them relegated to the leveling system. You are soo pro consumer ... what a joke. GL to all the fools who decide to pay for the RNG spin the League of Legends wheel of luck based loot systems that you PAY FOR. Whales man this is what you have done to gaming. EA < Riot Games < Ubisoft < Capcom In terms of cheap loot box tactics you just pushed yourself above Ubisoft and are just under EA. Thankfully I ain't the fool and haven't spent more than 60$ on this game in the 5 years I have played it. And tactics like this are EXACTLY why I DO not invest more money into this game.
because some people like me want champion shards in our chests... You have to realize not everyone wants the same thing as you.
: They just changed it so it can fully refund from just 2 kills max rank :/

Wooosh Re (EUW)
: Personally I want less new champions in 2018-2019 and more VGU's of old ones.
I'm gonna guess 4-5 new champs this year and 6-7 somewhat substantial reworks. That's pretty good to me at least.
: I prefer new champs. Champion reworks are either boring to me if I don't have any prior attachment to the champion or super frustrating to me if it is a champion I loved to play before and have to sit here and watch them be torn apart and replaced with a new character. The only two champ reworks that I have actually liked are Warwick and Urgot, but to this day every time I hear new Galio's voice lines it makes me feel slightly irritated knowing that thing used to be my favorite gargoyle. Not every new champion makes me super excited, but the more we get of them, the more likely I am to come across one that I actually find interesting. Currently waiting on a cool new non-humanoid champ. Kai'sa, Zoe, and Kayne were not my thing.
So you just want them to leave them in the trash? cause its rework them, or basically nerf them until they don't exist.
: Really unnecessary bro lol. It's not that serious.
There has to be a point were you (you as in the op and people in general) just let little shit go... Not everything you dislike is an attack.
: Today I requested Riot to remove Frost Blade Irelia from my account.
: is this going to add lag to the game anyway? even if it's off? better said, is this going to add lag if it's on?
The amount of "lag" a low weight voice system would be pretty much unnoticeable. It's not something that pretty much anyone should be worrying about.
: So, two things I noticed.... First, I think it is EXTREMELY rare for you to have 8+ games, in a row, with the same person and nobody else is lobbied. That seems like you two are duo queueing... Which I am not going to get into. He also carried your team in quite a few games, which is irrelevant, but funny. Next, the person who I assume you are posting about does not have any games in their match history where they stack tear. I don't know if you are talking about the same person, but we can look at your match history and see all of the games you played and who was playing master yi. You also went on to pick/lock master yi on the next 15+ games you played. So................
They one that I presume, YOU think he is talking about isn't who he is talking about. look at one of the games that he was duoing with the YI you think he is talking about, and look at the enemy team to find the actual guy.
: Zoe is currently the lowest win rate champion
Im not complaining, she really has a toxic kit tbh.

Even then, though, I just can&#x27;t fathom a reason why anyone should be able to take a tower 3 minutes into the game unless you&#x27;re 5-manning it or something. so Zyra... attempting to defend by herself... a champion that more than likely got zoned to oblivion since she had no back up whatsoever with two champions that just want to push, push, push and are already going to be hitting the WEAKEST turret in the entire game... bot turret is the easiest turret to kill in the game. You can lose bot turret just because you backed at the wrong time even if the turret was at full HP
if you look at the vid they are left for 40 seconds without any interference, they also knew zyra was low and that the jungle was top. This is just op's team getting out macroed really hard (obviously the tris afk is the reason). I'm not surprised by this and am kinda happy that league is so intense that some bad plays and an afk DOES have a big effect on the game means its just a good competitive game.
Sensanaty (EUW)
: Bot tower fell at 3 minutes
It really isn't that surprising.... The 2 were given 40 seconds of just hitting a tower without anyone even trying to stop them. Even if it is only 3 minutes in, being given that much time with no interference is pretty unreasonable.

: I keep saying this but Riot literally doesn't work in November and ESPECIALLY December. They use the excuse of end of season to basically skip out in November and christmas as a reason to not do shit in December. Every singe fucking season. And yet every fucking season someones gonna come out and say HURR DURR PRESEASON RITO GON DO STUFF.
Thilmer (EUW)
: Preseason is supposed to fix the things that were broken in the last season. If Preseason is broken, the rest of the season will be broken also, because a normal patch is 5% of a preseason patch, so to fix the mistakes made in the preseason Riot needs 20 patches. This kind of problems wouldn't appear if Riot payed attention to the testers in the PBE.
That's not the point of preseason. Preseason is a time to make long term changes for the sack of making league better later on. Look at all the past preseason, they are always huge changes to make league better in the long term. This preseason is no different, runes and masteries were poorly designed, so riot changed that for the long term health of the game.
: ***
When you change basically every champion (runes reforge) to a noticeable extent then obviously the game state is gonna be super unbalanced. The funny part is the OP champs have been changing, without major changes being made to them, meaning it's most likely just lack of knowledge by the community.
Barkley (NA)
: Since riot obviously embraces the current snowball....
if it's see easy to fix, then why don't you lay out the plan.... Obviously the game isn't gonna be balanced after changing the whole runes and masteries system that drastically affects every champion in the game. Just making the same complaining posts over and over again is point less, and just sad.
: What are LCS casters actually going to talk about in Season 8?
wow league isn't balanced after they change the whole runes and mastery system... I'm shocked.
Owyn (EUNE)
: oh! thx for the idea, I actually wanted to try out some champs {{sticker:sg-jinx}}
Well you're gonna have to troll your friends (make them waste their be/rp) and pay lol.
Quepha (NA)
: Umm... I like that for the spirit of competition, but if Clash is the ONLY place players can try out all the champions, then it may become the GOTO place for people to try out champions they don't own. I could see players possibly wandering into the mode not really caring about anything but "oh I get to try Yasuo here without buying him" and making for very un-competitive matches. I feel like opening up all champions to practice mode where players are restricted to only interact with bots might be a good companion to this feature to create a better place in the game for that kind of activity. Maybe that's an idea from HotS worth copying.
You have to have a premade... So you can't just wander in. It also cost be/rp so if you are trolling you're gonna have a hard time finding a premade cause no one wants to lose their be/rp.
Sora Omo (NA)
: That's actually a REALLY good point I really hope Riot sees this. I have a friend that I just know is gonna abuse this to feed in our games he legit plays whatever is a troll I don't think he's played the right champion for the right role in months and because he's our friend we're not gonna exclude him from our team. Riot pls find a good way to prevent this from becoming a go-to place to try out new champs.
That's honestly your problem... If he is literally gonna troll then just play normals, clash cost be/rp and can only be played a select time you have to take it seriously or it won't even be fun.
