Pro play - absolutely filled with meta-picks. Pro's cant even play the champions they main and the games balance sucks.
**Solid evidence that balance sucks; not just a meme**
Kayle pick or ban
ADC's are able to IE first (ADC's were always imba when IE is a first item buy)
ADC's were ALWAYS a two item spike role. Now it's just land a couple abilities and people die to your PTA.
Ranked play - extremely toxic, every loss has two auto fills on the losing side or a mixture of low % winrate players with ONE decently WR player OR BOTH.
**Hardcore players that care about winning and losing; are constantly banned from trolls harassing them**
The guy that runs it down; or the guy that dies 0-4 in lane within like 3 minutes in a group of supposed top 25% of the playerbase? I don't think so.
Auto-fill sacrificed good matches; thanks for the extremely quick matches for my 30-40 minutes of disgusting loss.
PROMOTION matches? really.
They literally took off more divisions off of ranks, just so we could see more players in gold+ for rewards so they don't quit the game.
Casual play - all of the above
More players running it down, running AD ryze..
Don't worry we'll keep league active with our skinssss
Then nerf that champion a month later.
BTW we still can't play tanks; thanks ADC meta!
Now every game, is 1000% reliant on junglers ganking. Because top can't survive.
You want to play with friends?
Oh you don't have a full 5 premade; here let us give you guys one extremely bad player.
