: @Riot Is Taric officially gay?
1. These forums are gay af. 2. You know what they would do to Taric in the Middle East? 3. The majority of people reading this are angry gaylords. 4. I am not homophobic and I do Not judge taric by his sexual preference. _ie. I have played and enjoy playing taric as support and I like his emotes. __ 5. I cannot express more how gay I think most of you are.

: Real talk here: Why is Korea SO good at this game?
I'm about to break this down for you all so listen carefully because you'll never really see me do this again. I'm korean and i was born in korea in 1980. I moved to NJ when i was 3, then moved to nyc when i was 8 and ive been here ever since. I did live in korea from 2000-2002 and ive been there a few times from then til now. I have ALWAYS been a gamer. Ive only missed a few days of work/school/social events for the reason of gaming. I was really into nintendo, then Playstation, then i went back from PC and ps2/ps3/ps4 xbox/xbox360 and back to PC now. I've played a ton of WoW, Everquest, LoL, dota, and a shit-ton of other MMOs Mobas FPS's RPG's RTS and all the mainstream games you could think of. When i went to korea in 2000, i noticed that there were SO many Internet cafes(in korea we call them PC Bangs(PC rooms)) EVERYWHERE. In Seoul, they must have had atleast 1 on everyblock. And this is back in 2000 when online gaming was still relatively new. In the united states, there were probably like 10 in the country if any at all( i have no idea but i know ive only seen 1 in nyc at the time). They also had arcades everywhere. I would really enjoy going to the internet cafes with friends and playing games. 95% of the people in there would be playing starcraft. When they got bored, if they ever got bored, they would play things like rainbow6 or ultima or some onlineMMO(maybe lineage?). SC was simply huge and it was on every PC in korea. Everyone in that country knows what starcraft is like the united states knows what the board game Monopoly is. It was integrated into the life of kids. I used to watch TV and saw that they actually had televised tournaments of starcraft back then. I thought it was amazing. The big corporations started to see that there was actual money to be made. They started to invest in the best players. Players had contracts and advertised for these companies. And this was back in 2000. Imagine Apple or IBM or AT&T, heck, even Disney or Facebook endorsing players in the US. The proper gaming culture is simply not there yet. The cost of living in korea is less, and the real estate is less. Im sure its way cheaper to manage an internet cafe in korea then in the US. They consistently sell out venues and pack stadiums with esports(mostly starcraft). I havent been there in a while but I still think Starcraft 2 is still bigger than league over there. No one outside of korea will ever come close to beating the best korean players in starcraft2. While starcraft has been around for almost 20years, league is still fairly new. The united states has millions of people playing league but only a handful of people will ever make money from competitive gaming. The US is probably still not even close to where korea was in the year 2000 when it comes to esports. This is where the money comes from but the talent is being brewed in the thousands of internet cafes in korea. However, i firmly believe that the rest of the world will eventually catch up. When average people compete against the best people and they lose, they gain experience and they will eventually rise to the occasion. But this will take YEARS. LoL is evolving and different strategies form from patch to patch. Its going to take several years because there simply is not enough international play. Teams like TSM or C9 or those EU teams will have to go to korea and i just do not see that happening. My guess is that asian countries will rule LoL for the next 10-20 years. And i say asian because other asian countries also harbor mass amounts of youthful gamers and i understand that they have a similar gaming culture that korea has. And this part is just my opinion and a rather ridiculous one that that, but I also believe that asians have great hand-eye coordination and they are amazing at mathematics(obviously). I know it sounds ridiculous and you may ask, what does math have to do with gaming? Its all about logic and figuring things out. All great gamers are good at math. But not everyone good at math is good at gaming, hand-eye coordination is important as well. Test that theory on anyone good at video games. NA and EU should only be allowed to bring 2 teams to worlds at this point, in reality, it should be just 1. The difference in the amount of talent across these regions are staggering. You can put the top 8 korean teams in worlds with 2 in each group and they will probably all make it out of groups. -culture -financial support -lifestyle -brain not exactly in that order.

: >I would like there to be an option to have a refund for a skin that they change. I understand that the splash art only lasts for about a minute while the screen loads but its one of the reasons why i buy skins. _In addition to what can be browsed and admired in the client at any time._ That's not a clear answer - like I said further up, splash arts can be changed at will. I understand the desire to keep older splash arts if someone would prefer those, I really do (taste is a personal thing) - hell, why you think I even did change some of them back myself? - but a refund...that's pushing it. Especially when what is apparently the most desired solution is so readily available. Also, the last part of your reply here, as it is a direct response to me, is nothing short of offensive! I have made a post with willingness to assist you in returning the splash arts you so clearly want back, and you respond with talk of hemorrhoid-cream. That is unacceptable.

I have made a post with willingness to assist you in returning the splash arts you so clearly want back, and you respond with talk of hemorrhoid-cream. That is unacceptable. Listen, you're absolutely right. However, i take pleasure in showing other people the art in the skins that I've purchased. When they are changed and become something that i would not have spent the RP on, then there is a slight problem. I like to show off my skins. I do appreciate your assistance, i had no idea you could change things like that. I will look into it as it seems to be an option worth looking into. And thats a different cottontail teemo art, his face is weird... Regardless, the suggestion of the cream was not meant for you. https://gyazo.com/20863c44c9b29114471add9948c62cb6 look how cute the one on the bottom is. Its incredibly unique and it is(was) my favorite teemo skin.

: Be clear now: you want the pre-update splash arts back, or you want the RP back?

I would like there to be an option to have a refund for a skin that they change. I understand that the splash art only lasts for about a minute while the screen loads but its one of the reasons why i buy skins. Someone mentioned earlier that they only care about the in game changes and effects. Well i mentioned before that its not going to be a big deal to most people. I find it very interesting that there so many people that disapprove of this idea considering how many down votes there are. I feel as though it is not a big deal and i understand if it will never happen and i'm sure many other skins will change. They changed Giant enemy crabgot, but he still has remained mostly the same. However, once again, i feel like something at least needs to be said. Seems to be a very sensitive crowd that i have reached out to and bothered. Fortunately, most menstrual items can be kept in place for more than 24 hours so I hope that those of you that disapprove of my message have an easier time dealing with the uncomfortable comments for tonight. Here's something that should help those of you out as well... https://www.amazon.com/Anacare-Natural-Cream-Hemorrhoids-irritation/dp/B00DNDL4ZG/ref=sr_1_7_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1476751430&sr=8-7&keywords=anal+cream
: Changing the skin art that people pay RP for is not fair. I wish i could get a refund.
And what is with all the downvotes? Listen people, i didnt mean to hurt anyones fragile buttocks with my comments. I appreciate all of the artwork which is why i pay money for skins in the first place. I'm merely trying to say that i wish there was an option to get an rp refund for when they pull the switcheroo on skins that i or anyone else really liked. I understand that there is no option for that and i am not expecting my RP back. Something needs to be said tho. So i hope all the downvoters have your menstrual items securely in place for tonight. And I wish that cottontail teemo will quietly prance on your windowsills tonight, lay some eggs so that they're fresh and they still have his fluidly film on them and throw them at your faces while you sleep.

: Cottontail Teemo's splash update was incredible.

The artwork does look nicer. But i wanted the 16bit teemo looking like he just ate some shrooms and hopping around in a bunny suit in the woods while holding a green straw teemo.

: Moral of story: don't buy a book because of its cover. It might get ketchup spilled on it one day, and change forever. And the books stores won't take it back.

Isnt that why we buy a skin in the first place? i dont buy a skin thinking, oh they're gonna change this later and i may not like it. I buy it because i like the way it looks at that moment in time.

That is what I thought at first. I thought they saved their best casters for the knockout stages through the finals. I will now start watching overwatch games.
