: The 10 game quest is for those who do nothing but play tft.. It's always the last quest of the set so riiot figures, you play enough to get to that point, you'll probably keep playing w/o any reward so bit of bonus xp for 10 games is just icing on the cake. Those folks are going to play tft with or without rewards. For me, once I get my others done and that one is left, I quit until the next round of quests/mission is out. I somewhat enjoy tft but the rng is a bit heavy. When the mode first came out, I'd play a lot because I enjoyed it. Now, I play for the rewards and if they are gone, I won't play.
I agree, they need to fix the rng on the items and champs a lot more, because there are literally games where we lose miles apart just because of nothing but rng.

: All memes and trash talk aside..
So what you're asking is for us to appreciate that Riot made a good game and then ruined it? Because that's what happened, let me be very clear there was a point where this game was super fun and the bugs were only a minor issue, this is no longer the case, the game is so broken now that the main reason it's not fun is BECAUSE of all the crap they broke. So no, I don't think we will "appreciate" the fact that they took a game that was good and ruined it with their lack of balance and terrible client.
: Curiosity regarding player preference.
Ashe is actually quite broken right now and I'll explain why, while most champs require some kind of catch up mechanic and escape mechanic ashes catch up mechanic makes her impossible to escape short of actually using a escape mechanic away. She's one of the champions that if she engages you outright and you try to run she'll kill you while you're trying to walk backwards this is not an ok mechanic. It's entirely too long and too powerful for what it is. It would be ok if it were a second but she has it at like 5 seconds which is enough to wipe anyone out.
: Can I get banned for this?
That is not a punishable statement.

: You know that you mathematically don't need that last bonus to get your little legends.
I do, which is why I skipped it, which pretty much everyone else did as well. But I find it sad that they would put in a bonus that no one would want to get because it's just overkill on the requirements. There's no reason to put in a 10 game bonus, and if you do why only make it worth 100 points?

I am, because one of the bonuses is a little legends egg.

I absolutely agree, these past seasons have gone from bad to worse, this is no longer a game where you can trade. It's just whoever can get to being 1 shot first. Which makes this game absolutely miserable.

This game will never get better, and the reason is because they don't understand fundamentally where they're making mistakes. They don't listen to anyone's input if they aren't the top of the top. Which is why this game will 100% fail. There's something in this announcement that should be concerning to everyone. The fact that they want to "expand" on what they've already done, because what they've done so far is fck this game up. Now everything else aside the only way they could expand on that is by making it even worse. What they should do is STOP expanding and fix the sht they already broke.
: how are you all feeling about the announcement coming up on the 15th?
Well considering that announcement is about as vague as vague can be there's nothing to say about it yet. Wait 3 days and then when they actually drop some details we can revisit this conversation.
: Hey, Im a HotS player who recently migrated to league of legends for *various* reasons...
Take my advice, don't walk, RUN in the other direction, to a game that's good, because this game doesn't even know what good looks like.

That's exactly how I look every time I read a new "update" .
: @RIOT consistency with sustain
What are you talking about? Rito is extremely consistent! They constantly give us a client that disconnects, lags, and breaks. They constantly claim the game is balanced when it's completely broken AF. And they constantly claim their ban system works when it's a dumpster fire. I've never seen a company more consistent at being complete and utter garbage. And on a more personal note this is the only game I've ever played that strives to get worse with every game. I can truly say I've never had that experience with any other game where the more I play, the less I want to.

I love this idea, I also would still like them to make a cow skin for amumu called "a moo moo" it would be white with black spots and 6 utters that would shoot out milk which would be his "stun" and the person in the stun would slip on the milk for the duration. Also when he ults you'd hear a giant MOOOOOOOOOOO!

: what do you mean? considering we are talking about today, where are the others that had a 300 increase so I can go to that thread for help as well.
I made a thread about how I lost promos because of 4 DCs in a row and 2 games that were so high latency they were unplayable. And you can't help, because it's not a player side issue, it's a rito garbage client server side issue. You'd think that a multibillion dollar company would upgrade to SSD servers, since they're 5x faster and have virtually no wear, but instead they just stayed with the SAS and after the many years this game has been out of course they're acting up.

Yea it's actually very disheartening because when I first started playing my thinking was that the higher up you go the less trolls and douches there'd be, however sadly that isn't the case. And if you ever want to see a perfect example of this case and point is tyler1.

Barkley (NA)
: See THIS is an interesting point -- because "one shotting" is NOT actually what assassins should be doing. Assassins should excel at hiding. Stealth. Ambush. Surprise attacks. Riot seems to think this is synonymous with "Blow someone up before they can react" Its not. A champion that stays invisible and skirts around the fight, waiting for the opportune moment to strike doesn't NEED to one-shot. They simply need to have enough skill and patience to perform their job. One shotting should never exist in a game like this. 2-3 hits MINIMUM to kill someone. You won't hear me say this often, but I think HOTS did assassins right. Champs like Zeratul feel rewarding to play because you can stay invisible, navigate your way around a fight, and then do MASSIVE damage to someone. You might not necessarily 100-0 them, but they're sure as hell gonna know you were there, and they're sure as hell gonna re-think what they're doing when you hit them. That's what an assassin should do.
I agree with you, plus there's the matter of it's completely counter intuitive to make a game where the primary battle style is trading and then make a class who's fundamentally made to not trade but 1 shot.

: Good point. I think profits might go up though. A lot idiots playing the little legends gambling game Riot released, called eggs. They should of called it CSGO cases, but you cant sell the skins.
Yea I'm actually kind of surprised because I heard they passed a law that lootboxes are illegal and those are 100% lootboxes.

Don't even bother this company is so lackluster that they aren't worth the effort. I'm endlessly amused at how they managed to lose $400 million in 1 year because of their "patches". I can't wait to see next years losses.

The problem is that when they say rework they mean "broken AF". So what you essentially get is just broken champions endlessly.

Their ban system is complete trash, don't even bother looking for a fair outcome because you'll never find one.
: The Ban System
I completely agree with you, and have been saying as much, but devs claim that 1 report equals 9 when I've tested it with people have repeatedly come up with the fact that the more reports do in fact equal getting punished almost immediately. So You're gonna have to bite the bullet on this one because they'll just keep perpetuating the lie that they have a fair and balanced ban system and it will keep being complete and utter BS.

Because I'm definitely not taking your word on it. And no company would ever relinquish control that's the reason why people buy 100% of another company. Is specifically so they would have direct control over it. It was stated in the original post detailing the acquisition. Tencent isnt a company that wants to take manual control over anything, all they care about is chinese monetization rights and passive income. Direct control costs too much money for it to be worth it for them, given all the other companies they own. Theyre hands off outside china.
That makes 0 sense monetarily, if they wanted to be hands off they could have very easily purchased a much smaller share of the company.

You have some proof? Because I'm definitely not taking your word on it. And no company would ever relinquish control that's the reason why people buy 100% of another company. Is specifically so they would have direct control over it.
: You're pretty hostile towards anyone who points out that subsidiaries make independent choices. Chill down. TFT was not a choice at all btw. TFT was simply made part of the patch module, and if it failed, it would have been stricken by the NA office, like every other less popular League module. They didn't get ordered to allow it into late Beta. They made the choice when NA market numbers were temporarily beating out Summoner's Rift. Like with every other difference in markets (Censorship for example; China has a stock mesh, that sometimes is modified for NA (young models being more clothed and champions who are obviously supposed to be sexual (Evelynn) being almost naked) This is how League works: One customer asks for a specific product to be made. Riot accommodates that customer. Riot shops that product to its other customers. Customers approve/deny the new product. Market is established. ALL of that can happen outside of Tencent's oversight.
And I suppose you have proof of any of this? No? Of course not, because speculation isn't proof of anything. You saying "it's outside Tencent's oversight" is backed up by absolutely nothing at all. And by the way riot has never accommodated the customer, which is why this forum is filled with angry people who are fed up with them doing nothing to fix this game. Riot has only ever accommodated it's bottom line. But way to spout a bunch of bullshit.
: Kai'Sa is extremely sexualized for no GOOD reason
Don't be absurd, she's over-sexualized for a very good reason. To sell skins. And of course they can only do it here because if they tried it in china they would get a permaban.

: rise of AFK and intentional FEEDING
Well first let me assure you that there is a lot more afk/feeding this season and not for the reason you think. First lets agree that the new client is a piece of shit. Because it really is, it DCs a vast majority of people, lags out a good portion of the rest and that's just random. The second thing is that there are A LOT of straight up trolls who are there to do nothing other then to ruin games. And finally this game in itself is no longer fun, between having a complete garbage balance team that doesn't do anything but break champions and fixes nothing and making OP builds there really is no way to salvage the heap that this game has become.
