When I said it is a necessity, I meant it in the sense that it's a necessity to avoid being upset by people's words, not in the sense that it's a necessity to avoid blame. You originally said: "If someone is as sensitive as the person described in the post, then muting everyone preemptively is indeed a necessity." That's your opinion, and Riot disagrees. That's it. They are being punished for breaking the rules. That's what happens when you decide randomly to tell someone to kill themselves and you get reported by others who see it. That is literally why there is a report system. They aren't extra sensitive, they are reporting someone for breaking the rules and it's easy to just not say anything at all. You aren't the one to decide who is overly sensitive and should be muting everyone all the time - Riot is. Riot decided they don't want people to have to do that, and if they are breaking the rules anyways it's easy to punish. The blame is 100% on the person being toxic breaking the games rules, not the person who is 'extra sensitive', in your opinion.

Otherwise they can verbally abuse one another, just as people can steal from one another in real life unless people always keep their doors locked. If I decided to leave my door unlocked, it might be a bad idea, but technically do I HAVE to lock my door? Nope. Does that mean people are allowed to enter without my permission? Nope. Against the rules. It is against the rules to go into my home without my permission whether my door is unlocked or not. With your logic we should blame victims for how they dress if they are sexually harassed? You are victim blaming 100% here. Since they should be always muting EVERYONE IN EVERY GAME (that's reasonable, right?? Lol) according to you, that gives them the right to wish death on others. Why on Earth are you trying to find excuses for people who tell others to kill themselves? Holy, it's 2019 and now we gotta justify why being nice to others should be the norm, haha. Once again, and for the final time, Riot has the means to punish people who 'try' to unlock other people's doors because they don't want people to have to always lock their doors. There is many games where you can say mean things like that to others, Riot says they don't want that.

I'm sure they'd rather people not steal from one another. How do you not that how your example doesn't work? In Riot's game they have the ability to punish people who steal from other people's house because they have the means to do it automatically by their door locking/punishment system. People literally cannot even try to get into another person's house because Riot makes the rules and basically is God in their game. Unfortunately real life rules can easily be broken, so it's smarter to keep your door locked. That's why your example doesn't work. In Riot's game, they don't expect people to have to lock their doors at all, plain and simple.

It'll be gone, they'll be sad, and players who like the real game will move on. How people manage to justify that Riot left the mode on life support for literally YEARS is completely beyond me, and I usually defend Riot. This is completely on them. They could have been balancing the map, fixing issues, giving champ mastery for 3s, giving missions for 3s. But they didnt' do a single fucking thing for over 3 years and then make a very dishonest blog post explaining why they are removing it. They have barely ever done ANYTHING to 3s to help it. It's not hard to understand, they stopped supporting the mode in hopes that the population would decline, and then pull the plug when there is very few left to complain - exactly like Dominion.
: Or perhaps since they have access to full player data, they could see that even with the changes they made (that were for the purpose of getting more players), people still didn’t care. I’ve seen when Riot made itemization, champion, or even map changes to TT. They did nothing to spur the community to want to play it, and that’s something Riot knew.

I don't really need to see the internal numbers to realize that Riot hasn't made an effort whatsoever for the mode in years. There is not really a good excuse for that.

At this point I'd have preferred if Riot just said "We haven't cared to bother trying to help 3s in years, so we are getting rid of it, bye." instead of this PR malarkey they are trying to pawn off on us.

If you are only using the heal pre 10 seconds, you are not playing bard right. Lol, reading skills much? Any bard player would know that. Even non bard players know that. OP never said he only uses the quick heal if you read his post. He stated that it's when he uses his instant heal **late game** in an emergency it's very lackluster, op never claimed they use primarily that heal all the time. Early game and late game the full heal shrines heal a lot, but late game Bard rarely even gets to make use of that heal because you don't have time to wait for the shrine to finish so Bard ends up using the quick heal way more often late game.

: Client bug showing friends false game lengths.
Additional thoughts: Is this some emergency 'fix' to the client where it doesn't show game times properly for whatever reason? Not a huge deal, but definitely found myself completely surprised and confused a whole bunch of times after weeks now. I might be wrong, but really at this point this client needs to be reworked properly. This is easily reproduced, because I experience it literally every day for weeks now, but now that it's starting to get annoying I'm making a post here. Does anyone else experience this??

: This game has the worst client ever
My biggest regret was defending the client/riot when it first came out. I thought they'd fix most of these issues, but they've left it to rot and more issues seem to keep coming up. It looks so bad on them to have such a terrible client. There is times where I can't click the Play button. Or I click my loot and my client screen just goes blank. Same with the store. Dodging a game because the champion I want to click turns grey. Or the delays when you click things. It's god awful. There is many others I'm forgetting right now as well.
: I miss the days where you could see several Riot employees on the Gameplay boards on the red tracker
Riot does show up here from time to time, but tbh this place isn't exactly the most welcome place for Rioters at times. Hard to deny that. I've seen posts get upvoted asking for a specific Rioter to be fired, that recent Riven post, etc. This isn't a very tasteful community. There is some good posts, don't get me wrong, but there definitely is a fair share of emotionally induced posts that make it hard to have a proper discussion.

Stop going for the Yi picks or the Graves picks when you're dealing vs a team of assassins. You do realize that saying 'just counterpick x champion' doesn't always work, because there many times is times where you can't counterpick due to pick order. Like if you're first/second pick you're pretty much forced to pick OP champs or very safe ones (who still can be counter picked) - or play who you want and risk getting hard counterpicked... happens to me literally all the damn time. I seem to always get one of the first pick champs when I play league, and I play champs that are easily counterpicked, so your advice is pretty much completely useless to me, except for the odd times I get to be last pick. Also, just in case you say I can ban him, there is many OP champs these days so, again, banning doesn't matter unless I rly hate one champ. My ranked buddy bans Vayne every game, and basically begs me to ban a second champ for him.. I've had to carefully explain to him that I absolutely need my ban too. This really shows that there is too many broken champs atm. Also, you're asking me to give up my Yasuo ban, which you can pry from my cold dead fingers while I respawn. It's hard to decide what cancer you want to get destroyed by sometimes. Edit: I don't dislike league too much like many others on the boards, but I definitely miss the days where I can ban counterpicks, instead of completely broken champs. This 'damage meta' Riot defined is very annoying in some ways.

: Lore facts that sound like bullshit but are actually 100% true
: I finally quit. ggs league of legends
I feel you may be projecting a little bit when there might be other underlining personal issues that league is only being blamed for indirectly? I've been playing league steady since S2 and I don't experience this at all.. A game shouldn't get to you that bad, and at that point it's not league's fault you have a _video_ game addiction. Back in the day I basically AFKed my final year of college to spam Everquest. The last thing I thought is to blame the video game. It was my fault, and I needed to take action to stop doing that sort of thing in the future. You need to accept your own faults, instead of projecting it onto league specifically. I think quitting is a step in the right direction, but be careful you don't just switch your addiction to a different game. Good luck to you.

: My beloved cat is being hospitalised overnight.
Sending positive vibes your way! Here are my two cats: the black and white one (Trouble) tuckered out after a really tough vet visit, being comforted and hugged by Guybrush! [My kitties](https://imgur.com/a/GnVFmWa)

: Try to explain that to a player that's outside of the big circlejerk that is the NA Boards. Why is the game on a meme state?
Shit posting is low quality posts that usually derail the discussion, or make someone read a bunch of text with no point at the end. Example of meme-ing: Damage too high is a meme. There is a message that is trying to be given to the reader, but done in the fashion of a joke. This post for example is a pretty good meme because it's making a joke about how quick people die, and it's epecially funny because squishies die way faster than wards in many cases. Sometimes I see tanks die faster than wards, lol. A shitpost however is when you derail a discussion, wasting everyone's time (sometimes funny, sometimes not). Like, if someone asks for pet advice for their cat, and someone gives a huge explanation for them, but at the very end they give a hint that basically tells the listener they've wasted their time reading this good/bad pointless post that add nothing to the discussion topic.

: Hi I just got hit by a {{champion:25}} Q. I went downstairs, made a coffee and something to eat, ate my food and drank my coffee, was still rooted.
Last time I got hit by {{champion:25}} root the effects didn't end until halfway through the next game I was in.

: The guys on that bridge need to start selling {{item:2052}}. Though this may lead to over poro population and would need the poros to leave the map so they do not multiply infinitely and overthrow the FPS.

: What are you talking about? Kled can't steal farm. ALL farm is his farm. Honestly, the other players are lucky you don't come into lane to claim it more often.
: Pander? K/DA is an ode to all female K-Pop groups and what they represent for empowerment and Korean culture. There's no pandering there, just appreciation of a style that's become super popular in the last few years. Although K-pop "boyband" groups are out there and very popular, if I'm not mistaken, K-Pop's basic archetype was created by women and is constantly being reinvented by women. Leaving that aspect of K-Pop out of this event would be taking the creators of this Skin-line's inspiration for granted. Next time you're inclined to call something that respects and appreciates women "pandering" think back to all of the skins pandering to men (battle bunny, anyone?).
>(battle bunny, anyone And here I was thinking it was supposed to be in support of rabbits.
: Jhin appears to be out of place in here.
> Ez, Jayce, Ekko and Jhin. Is that better? Now he doesn't look out of place.
: i would argue the comparison is good because since league requires so much more commitment than fortnite that would be incentive for riot not to disappoint them regardless of the amount of mechanics because when the community provides balance feedback for league they are usually pretty specific about what they want and why
> would be incentive for riot not to disappoint them regardless I'm pretty sure this is actually why they are more careful and take longer to reply to certain thing.
Kai Guy (NA)
: Yea his attacks are made garbage to prevent abuse of {{item:3100}}
Why on earth would Karthus ever even buy {{item:3100}} over other items? Riot has said in the past that Karthus gets a bad auto attack animation/range to balance the rest of his kit, not to prevent him abusing one item. Karthus is often in close range due to his kit, yet you never see anyone buying {{item:3100}} on him because even with increased range it would still be pretty bad. There is way better items that are more important on him.

Pen + dmg + health means if you want to go glass cannon builds it helps tremendously (ie {{item:3285}} {{item:3165}} {{item:3089}} ) {{item:3102}} : is important as a third item in some cases vs pick oriented comps. If you find yourself getting nocturne'd, lux'd, etc.
I disagree on the {{item:3173}} in some case as some mid laners do build that item. Twisted fate recently has taken to that item over the other boot options he usually chooses from. There is some niche mages that don't rush CD items who need CD badly early. Twisted fate currently is rushing those boots in most cases. Any mage that wants cooldown early, but doesn't rush build {{item:3285}} or {{item:3007}} might want those boots because it'll be ages before they have any cooldown because of the items they have to rush first.
: i ain't cherry picking shit, if you read the thread you would have seen me correcting someone on claiming that there are no highelo rioters in the game by: "not that i don't agree with you in general but there are rioters in masters and challenger, namely play-testers (aka ex pros that were hired) but they don't have anything to do with balance." the post was about the balance team being low dia peak which is true and which i provided the source for, and play-testers really do have nothing to do with balance, they test whether the changes crash the servers etc after which it goes straight to pbe.
Yes, but you said they are cherry picking. That's usually a bad thing, however you didn't explain that it's completely justified to cherry pick in this case because the whole balance team doesn't need to be high elo in the first place. You pointing out that one thing, and not including the fact they have a playtest team is cherry picking in the bad way. So you may wanna include that for the people who won't go scouring through the whole thread to find your justification on something you said in an earlier comment.. why not just include all the context first? Otherwise it just seems like you're trying to smear Riot unjustly. And another thing you said: > they test whether the changes crash the servers etc after which it goes straight to pbe. Meddler in the post you linked: > We've also got a separate team called Playtest with a higher average ranking again (generally high diamond to masters) who are **focused on assessing upcoming changes and how they'll impact the game.** What are you talking about "test the servers for crashing"? Why on Earth would they need high elo people to test the server stability? They are probably giving them experimental changes to see if they can be abused, if they feel clunky, or to see how a high elo player would utilize something. Not to test server stability..
: source cited: riots balance team https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/developer-corner/4juB9T8l-quick-gameplay-thoughts-october-27 no one on the riots balance team is currently higher than d5 nor were they ever higher than "low dia", mind you that the thread in question was cherry picked to prove that riots balance team isn't low elo, literally none of them are higher than low dia and most of them are around gold - silver.
You are actually cherry picking that article yourself, and you are leaving out an important disclaimer that changes most of what you're saying. Here is the quote from the article: > **We've also got a separate team called Playtest with a higher average ranking again (generally high diamond to masters) who are focused on assessing upcoming changes and how they'll impact the game.** > Clearly, their balance team doesn't need to be filled with mostly challenger/master players if they use the data given from people who are high elo that help them playtest. Their job is to balance the game, not play it as the top 1% of players in the world - you expect most of their balance team to be THAT HIGH ELO? He did say there was some higher that he didn't list, but their point was to prove they weren't made up of all silver players, which he proved. Here is an comparison I'll make: There is many composers who don't even play instruments, but yet they'll write songs because they have an understanding how to do it. So, I don't expect Riot's whole balance team to be challenger/master tier. They probably got full time jobs and families and busy lives. High elos like that are often streamers who play games as their 'job', so it's easier to maintain a high elo. That's why they have a playtest team who are mostly the highest elos, so they don't need to grind like that just so they have the right to justify their balance decisions based on the data they receive.
: I main her not because she's fun, but because I enjoy the suffering of other people.
{{champion:25}} "We'll bring them pain." {{champion:25}} "They will suffer." {{champion:25}} "I'll have my revenge." {{champion:25}} "Without mercy." {{champion:25}} "Share in my torment!" {{champion:25}} "Feel my pain." Seems like one of the only lines that isn't about suffering and pain is {{champion:25}} "Do not dally!"
: 3 patches in a row and Zyra's bugs haven't been fixed yet, amazing
Riot hasn't found the proper pesticide that will get rid of the bugs yep.
: "Ivern" name is a scrabble version of Riven
If you keep spelling Rengar, or Garen it'll eventually spells Garen or Rengar. Examples: garengarengarengarengarengarengarengar or rengarengarengarengarengarengarengaren
