: Foreign players on NA?
"Foreign" should be by physical location, not language. Also, Riot does not endorse region-locking, so the responsibility of playing on the nearest server is a choice of the player and not something that is enforced.

That is the problem. The issue here is not that there's something amiss or broken, it's working entirely as intended. It's the intended product that's the issue at a fundamental level. The difference between this skin and Thresh's other skins is that VISUALLY the hook ends instead of on the body of the victim, it ends ON TOP OF THE VICTIM. And so the fundamental flaw of LoL's 2-D based calculation and visual mismatch has been more emphasised due to the additional angular offset in the animation (in terms of height that is not a part of the game's calculation). EDIT: Riot could reduce this issue by simply bring down the rope circle to the victim's waist after catching them, but the problem is ultimately innate to the lack of a 3rd axis and issues like this would persist no matter what.
521 (NA)
: High noon Thresh should be banned in competitive games.
That is because LoL character's hitbox are a circle on the ground UNDER the character due to the fact this game is calculated entirely in 2-D and everything functions as if it's circles crawling on a board, while the animation display attacking the player on the upperbody, such as how Thresh's hook appears ON TOP OF his victim after the hook successfully lands UNDER him (by touching the circle under the feet of the character). This is the most evident in the 3rd picture of the lineup in the OP. This drastic difference between calculation and animation creates a giant visual angular mismatch, and is incredibly misleading indeed. This issue becomes especially worse when elevation of the terrains (that actually don't take elevation into calculation) is also involved. Riot should either finally add in a 3rd axis, or redo the animation to reflect a better matching between calculation and visuals so this kind of issue is nowhere as extreme as this particular case.

The current Akali is either be dumpstered by her hard counters, or she dumpster you by default and there is literally nothing you can do against it. She just has a lot of those fake-counterplay factors many champs seem to have these days, that gives the illusion of having counterplay instead of actually having those; this is far worse than the outdated no-counterplay designs, because at least those were straightforward, while stuff like current Akali's current shady design logic can only be described as cynical and sinister. This is the same kinda trait for all of the CertainlyT champs when he's not busy making champs that have 0 objective weakness and full of boom, and it is broken even in Riot's school of design (by the simple virtue of having the exact same "binary" problem as old Akali that the rework was setting out to fix) that they constantly tote about; it's just a shame that they just ignore it these days. New Akali is just old Akali on steroids. At least the old Akali was just binary, broken and frustration for 1 person she laid her eyes on, now Akali does that to an entire enemy team. The champ is broken. Just because a champ isn't Zoe level of brokeness, it doesn't mean the champ is suddenly all okay.
: Akali is a very balanced champion and should not be nerfed and instead buffed.
Rework her W first, then we talk. Before then, any sensible dev team would just nuke them from orbit and keep them there; which Riot definitely isn't a part of because this rework is NEW and came out the way it is in the first place. And given the current climate of Riot's game development, I wouldn't be surprised they buff her despite everything just to appeal to the edgy assholes whose only idea of having fun with others in a game is playing something so broken they're basically playing on cheats.

A perceived taboo is NOT a taboo. The deal here is not about taboo or whatever, and it literally has nothing to do with skeletons or corpses specifically, it's about a vague and badly worded law (rooted in certain levels of the government's anti-religious views) that may or may not be intentionally worded in such fashion and it's bad.
: The game is still using the censored Chinese version of Karthus' splash art.
On topic, That Karthus splash art is NOT a censored version, it's a COMPRESSED version. It is not just the face, the overall detail of the art has been reduced by a lot which obviously also includes the details from say the armour pieces and their lightning and whatnot. One can only guess they did this because the original file was too big or something and they simply took down the quality a bit while trying to min-max the quality-performance scale; it's just that it doesn't always turn out in the most optimal result. That is 2 very different matter. ......... ......... ......... But then again, this is just your typical ignorant anti-Chinese for the sake of anti-Chinese thread. "This caused a lot of classic splash arts to be replaced with some low-quality artwork." This shit again. Splash art replacement happened in the time when the old splash art were garbage, and by comparison the Chinese ones were superior alternatives and that's why they used them. It's not even like there aren't Chinese arts that have become classics, remember these? https://rosaella.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/kayle-classic-updated.jpg (people went down the street in torches and pitchforks when Riot replaced this) http://www.leaguesplash.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/ChineseAkali.jpg (same for this) https://nhanfiction.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/chinese_art_nidalee_by_fashnbug-d38cnn5.jpg (was a copy of an art of Nobundo from WoW; and then current Nid splash copied the Chinese art) http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110320033952/leagueoflegends/images/b/ba/Zilean_OriginalSkin_Ch.jpg http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110305000518/leagueoflegends/images/f/f2/Warwick_OriginalSkin_Ch.jpg http://i51.tinypic.com/ruoh15.png (the best Udyr art to date) etc While others were used as TEMPORARY replacement over the old vastly outdated old splashes.

The Forsaken in the Chinese release of WoW have no bones sticking out. They're just whole zombies That is completely false. The reason is not because corpses and skeletons are "taboo", but because one of the laws in China regarding media is extremely vague as it states that media is not to "promote occult ideas" and since nobody knows what the fuck it means specifically and so the game companies often simply opt to **censor themselves** in fear of risking a legal battle rather than being batted down by Chinese officials. Blizzard made all Forsaken covered in flesh due to this reason as no one has any idea what is the boundary of that law, and then the false understanding of the situation that you have has been circulating ever since. The same thing happened to even the Chinese splash art of the original Karthus where it was drawn with a skeleton face before it was then removed; most likely because of the same decision Blizzard made in concern of that vague law, and not because the law is specifically against skeletons. There is a why movies like Coco was shown in theaters in China just fine, and was in fact a blockbuster when it came out; where the movie spent 85% of its time in the underworld where everyone is a skeleton. They kinda just released it in China and hope for the best, and well, nothing happened to it. This isn't to say that there is no legal problems, given again, what the fuck is that law even asking for specifically (and it is also a symptom of a much wider concern of China's state-level toxic/aggressive atheism, but we won't get into that here)? However, it is NOT a broken law in the ways people think it functions.
: It amuses me how people assume that if e-sports didn't exist, the game would be balanced differently. No matter what, the game would be balanced around the best players... there'd just be fewer of those without the e-sport component.

No matter what, the game would be balanced around the best players... there'd just be fewer of those without the e-sport component. I still personally think the game would be less broken today if esport isn't a thing. I mean, with the now meme'ed and infamous "world patch" should already be indicative of this, but also the rising trend of Riot doing everything they could to make the game super-punishing (the extreme death timer, the damage meta and the complete irrelevance of defence that results in a time-to-kill so short it rivals twitch shooters, the paper-thin towers that also does laughable damage after champs hit level 3, Rift Herald can clear 3 turrets in a row almost instantly if enemy team is downed 3+ men, Baron buff now being like 3 times as strong as the old one, Dragon now gives permanent team-wide multiplicative scaling buffs, a second Baron buff in the form of Elder Dragon... etc etc) in order to force game endings under 20 min instead of the traditional 40 min is also a clear product of the esport influence. And this is not all, it is also very clear that the champ design team has also been taken by this and is now creating champs almost exclusively for the spectacle; pushing out abomination stuffed with both super damage, game-breaking CC, and insane mobility all in 1 package, just because they can look cool and 'wow' the viewers, in spite of the fact they are extremely aggravating to play against for all of the other players having to deal with them. Sure, the game was broken as shit way back before esport became big; cue the "meta-golem" and nonsense like the legends of AP Yi and whatnot. But that was more attributed to the inexperience of the dev team and the young age of the game for the very most part, rather than today where they basically break the game's balance in a certain way not because they don't know better but because they could, and does so on purpose as the gameplay satisfaction of the actual players is no longer the priority but the viewerships and the esport glamour. Had the game actually continued development with not nearly as big of an emphasis on pro scene, the game would have gone a VERY different direction indeed. I dare say most of the nonsense we complain about today, wouldn't even exist had the game continued without the corruption of esport.

You could have just said that (or ignored it), but you chose to be a dick and write a fucking essay about how "Esports isn't a real sport". They're not sports, though. That's what we're saying. A video game is not a sport. It already has its own classification, as "game" or "video game." Writing isnt an Intellectual-sport. Music isn't a soundsport. Painting isnt an artsport. And jerking off isn't a lonelysport. All of these activities already have descriptive titles to them and fall under different genres of recreational activity.

To be fair, competitive gaming fits every single description within the definition of "sport" with the sole exception that it's probably not matching "physical" aspect of the definition in the eyes of some people. But then again, precision-oriented sports are a thing too. That is why things like Golf, Archery, Snooker, and Throwing Darts are sports where especially the latter 2, involve very little physical exertion of the player. So if precision and dexterity in and of itself constitutes the requirement for "physical" definition of the term "sport", then what makes playing video games competitively not a sport as well?

: Auerelion sol getting nerfed ahead of irelia, akali, Jax, kassadin, LeBlanc
https://lolalytics.com/ranked/worldwide/platinum/plus/champion/AurelionSol/graphs/ Few things to notice: * ASol's play rate goes HIGHER the higher elo he's in; virtually never played in low elo, and gets about 2% play rate in Diamond where he's most played. * The uprising trend of the pick rate is the same for the win rate. At his peak in Diamond, his win rate approaches 60%. * Though <2% play rate in Diamond is small and may skew the stats as mentioned by another, but it isn't valid enough of a defence. * Because going to the "Overview" tab, we can see his top players have a consistent win rate of 60%. Hence indeed the mains are skewing the stats, BUT It should also be noted that other champs' top players do NOT have a 60% win rate on them; it is too high. This means the champ is a broken champ that no one knows how to play, and is abused extremely so by those who do know how. It still doesn't excuse the champ as being any less broken.
Chakkoty (EUW)
: Female Champion Body Inconsistencies (aka. "Why her boobs so small")
Her boob size is never a part of Sona's iconic features that must be kept consistent throughout all of her representation. The same reason why Jhin has different eye colour in his other major portrayals, such as his teaser and very own splash art where they depict him as having a brown eyes when it's actually false, as his eye colour is supposed to be blue and correctly depicted in his in-game model. Jhin's right arm in the splash art is also depicted as if it's seemingly cybernetic to some extent, when in actuality his arm is totally normal but just wears an armour over it for shock-absorption for when he brings out the cannon on his right arm. These inconsistencies while present and may be a thorn to someone's side, are not a big issues, because they ultimately do not sabotage the champion's major iconic design and themes and the said inconsistency only exists in the secondary (and sometimes irrelevant) details. Just as Jhin's image is not changed because he has different eye colours in different depiction, it doesn't mean Jhin is any less Jhin because of it; the same goes for Sona and her boob size, it's ultimately irrelevant. ..... This is also how say, superheroes' costumes and similar minor details slightly change all the time depending on who is the illustrator and writer of the current issue and whatnot, but the character is nevertheless the same; as in, _in character_. They don't just suddenly become someone else because they add an additional belt, and Sona isn't somehow totally changed because her boob size changed a bit between depiction.

The reality is that, the current implementation of diversity hire is a product of good o' traditional discrimination, and NOT either empowerment or the tyranny of diversity or some shit people call these days. Diversity hire quota. It is neither new, nor is it there in the name of diversity. Typically the quota is not set ANYWHERE NEAR 50-50, it's more like all people who is not a white male shares that second 50% together; and once the arbitrarily quota is met, no one other than the ""default"" demographic is allowed to be in, no matter how qualified and capable they are ("it works both ways" in a really fucked up way). The purpose of diversity quota is to be a gatekeeper, and NOT the opposite; it was first established to keep Jewish, black, and Asians out of universities for Christ sake, and it continues and would continue to be such a mechanism in spite of using a prettier name now and in the foreseeable future. I am not sure if you are a part of the group that would be socially considered a "minority", but god less if you are one and looking for a job in good positions. Because then you'd see a market where every company has their tiny diversity quota filled due to how tiny it is to begin with (duh), and you are rejected on the entire basis of you being and not your capabilities; but then you can't do anything against it because of the ""muh diversity quota"" and in fact people would now be talking shit about you while also institutionally discrimination against you and getting away with all of it. It's as fucked up as it gets. Remember, had the point be about actual diversity, then it would just mean the hiring process would block out the applicant's name and face in the hiring process. The sole reason why it goes through so many overly convoluted hoops in the first place is to pretend it actually addresses the issue when it does not.

: A reminder
Watching the first cinematic, I am reminded that Riot has always intended the turrets do little damage and seemingly made out of tissue paper, as Cho'gath blows the turret down solo in a few hits with a victorious roar. Maybe, we're just not seeing the greatness of Riot's design. ......... But really, who am I kidding. Paper turrets suck balls.
: Go ahead and ban me Mods.
The "radical feminists" that people are always talking about, is an extreme minority group of people with so little connection with each other that can't even be constitute as a "community". Their existence is just blown out of extreme proportion because it's easier for some to form their argument by pretending to be in the defensive; kinda like CoD campaigns, or most war propaganda. Believe it or not, in spite of the internet always pretending that the "leftists run the world and they are everywhere", it is in fact the direct opposite. There is a reason why most of the politics related videos on say, Youtube are right-leaning and that is what Youtube recommends to all of the impressionable young audiences given the video's and their creator's extreme numbers (hence why it would also seem why most people on the internet, especially young people, are right-leaning or exhibit clearly right-wing views, while ironically all complaining about as if they're the last stand oppressed by this giant dictatorship that just wants to destroy them or something in spite of their actual numbers, because they all watched either the same video or people who talk about the same shit), clearly that is not indicative of any "draconian left" or whatnot. Oh, and the super angry women's faces often used in Youtube thumbnails to supposedly represent "radical feminist"? Basically, outside of Chanty Binx, or the red-hair lady with glasses, it is to my knowledge that most to all of the other "angry feminist" that are commonly exploited as contextless thumbnails even have anything to do with feminism, or being mad for the wrong reason, or anything. I mean, in at least one instance, an angry woman's face is toted as the so called "angry radical feminist" when in actuality the face happened because she was riled up over someone who insisted on calling other races by their racial slurs or something along that line; that is "radical feminism" and wrong? "Radical feminists", "SJW" or whatever, are the modern day 201X's equivalent of "communist" of the 60s, or "witches" of the 12th century, or other more well known nonsense like "international Jews". They are created with the sole purpose to automatically boot your ideology into the realm of perceived correctness on the mere basis of creating this seemingly vague and all powerful enemy that is everything and anything bad that you can project onto and that we should all band up and supposedly combat against. Nothing but convenient strawman.

Point is, automatic fire alarm systems that can put out fire almost as soon as it's started doesn't mean arsonists shouldn't be held accountable by their crimes. Same as how the existence of security cameras doesn't mean thieves suddenly shouldn't be punished. Case in point. The existence of means to mitigate or prevent possible damage doesn't mean the cause of the damage is suddenly not to be held accountable.

In the very first game with C9 vs KBM he was banned away solely because Titan plays it bot lane. In the grand scheme of things, Vel'Koz only appears in pro play in an almost insignificant amount of games, and less so in bot. Trying to suggest outliners are to be taken seriously by the average data trend in statistics is insanity.

: Lol, let's just put the game aside. Do you really think there isn't a situation where Velkoz isn't a good pick as a bot laner? In competitive of course, where people actually draft around unique picks. I don't think the implication is that if he's picked it means you're going to see more of it, it's more that there exists situations where picks like these can work on the current patch in competitive.

The thing is that the topic is about the guy trying to say that 1 match where Vel'Koz got pick is supposed to show that he's a good pick in bot in pro scene and subsequently adding to the proof for bot lane diversity or something. And the argument hinges on the fact Vel'Koz has been picked into bot for the very first and only time in this round of pro game... and in a troll match where nobody knows what the fuck both sides were even doing. The argument thus means jack all. The reality is that Vel'Koz is not seen as a good pick in bot in pro scene, or even just a solid pick in general, that's why he's barely ever picked as a whole in actual proper matches (let alone in bot) apart from that 1 single troll match. Blatant outliners should NOT be treated as the norm/average.

: Frenchies
It's 2018 and League is still a game without language option for the player (in spite of already being localised to like 15 languages), and people are still defending this shit because reasons. This is bizarre. ....... There was the un-official way of doing it in which you would have to play with setting files but you would only need to edit like a single parameter I recall. However I am not sure it's still a thing or whether or not it is going to get you into trouble with possible "3rd party software" bans. https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/5hjscs/psa_how_to_change_new_clients_language/ And doing it would change both the text and audio language of the game simultaneously. You can't have them separate, because again, reasons.
Mizaya (NA)
: DFM hasn't looked that bad at all so far though, and I'd say the level of play here is above anything you'll find at the highest ranks of NA solo queue, or OCE for that matter. So yeah, this is pretty relevant imo. Of course, I doubt Velkoz would work well in challenger solo queue because I doubt people would be willing to play around it. ADCs are the best for solo queue precisely for that reason (though in KR there has been a couple counterexamples against that). In competitive however we've seen Yasuo bot win a game against a top 2 team in the world not too long ago, as an example.

Vel'Koz appearance wasn't some grand and new and exciting implication, he was only picked because the entire match itself was a troll match, and won simply because the other team trolled harder. This means nothing.

: >Goal to increase diversity in bot occurred initially but has now reverted back to ADCS 100% of the time. Failure. Vel'Koz has already been played on the Worlds Play In with a win, and Heimerding has been banned 9 times for his botlane strenght considering that on pro play he's only viable bot (thank you mr G2 Hjarnan) Of course that non adc botlanes are less popular now, you needed some adcs at 45% winrate and being non viable in any lane to have champs that already had a lane be good on bot aswell. >Failed to make all ADCs viable, just switched out what the 'op' ADCs are. Was that even one of their objectives? Because it made no sense if they also wanted non adc botlanes. But yeah, they didn't made this point. >Goal to reduce early power spike by ADC's is a failure due to Stormrazor With the base stats nerfs every adc has a worse lane fase on top of the FleetF nerf, and StormR gives them a earlier power spike by the cost of being a obsolete item later that literally any adc outside Jhin sells. >Goal to reduce ADC damage to squishes is a massive failure. ADC's like Jhin, Kai'sa and MF still 2-3 shotting squishy champions. Jhin and MF does this for their kits, DarkHarvest MF with lethality isn't caused by the adc's changes, and Jhin always had his dmg burst for how his aa are (but now with the 600ms that is full bs, but that's movement speed, not more burst dmg and they are already nerfing it). And Kai'Sa sure is a problem. >Goal to increase cost of ADCs items occurred initially and then Riot decided to basically reduce them back to their previous super low values as a buff. Because they changed their goal, they realized that making a wholes class ultra lategame with trash early-mid was a bad idea so they reduced the cost but also nerfing the lategame power. And dont forget that Zeal items are still worse than on pre 8.11 and that Inifinity Edge now gives 10% true dmg convert which makes this IE version the worst version we have seen and the one that gives less dmg, compared to the old +50% crit dmg or the 15% true dmg convert. >Introduced a bunch of broken items that are abused by non ADCs ER rework was a total failure that is niche on his best user that is Lucian, they failed miserably right there. And StormR being abused by assasins is like adcs abusing lethality, it just needs some tweaks.

Ofc Vel'Koz worked, just like it could work in any Bronze match. It doesn't simply mean Vel'Koz is suddenly "played on the Worlds" or somehow implying that it's "Worlds-approved". That match literally doesn't mean anything, and you'd be extremely and intellectually dishonest to suggest that it does.

If you were already on 14 day ban (the 3rd [punishment tier) or just come out of it, basically anything can tick off and give you perma (4th tier). You should've stayed low. And if you're saying this chat alone gives you perma from absolutely nothing. It is literally impossible unless a system error. Either way, sort it out with the Riot support with a support ticket.
