: the new skin line and champion choices
I only somewhat agree on the Qiyana point. I'm just not very convinced of how authentic her popularity is. But still, they fit the band I guess. And yeah Yasuo was probably pushed a bit harder to join the band since he's uber popular and guarantees lots of money to make up for any under-performers

: OP, nobody's saying they shouldn't have representation for different ethnicities, just saying that you're sort of overexaggerating how little they give them skins/representation. And some people are justifiably confused at your definition of PoC. That's where the issue comes from. I think thematically, all the True Damage skins work well in the way they want them to, and it doesn't matter that they're PoC it just works well. It's been mentioned before that 90% of the time, skins are conceptualized, THEN they pick champions to work on the concept with. Like "okay we want a Hip-Hop band. Who fits there?" and since it's a black-dominated genre, they could fit Ekko and Senna in easily. And like I said, we just think you're not only being selective about your definition of PoC, but underexaggerating a bit how much they do work on those characters relative to the amount of them in the game.

I mean the counter argument to me praising Riot - which is all I was doing - is apparently "East Asian characters getting major skins in a Chinese-owned game is diverse enough." Then, after posting the list of the major skins this year, users started saying that Xayah and Rakan, two clearly white skinned characters, aren't white because they're actually a magical race. Apparently Prestige K/DA Evelynn, a pale skinned blonde, is not actually white because she's a succubus . Fizz and Aatrox are obviously not meant to represent humans in any way, yet since I posted the complete list people think I'm saying they're also white characters. And now your counter is "They work more on those characters than the other characters," which is just a spineless way to say you think the colored characters get a disproportionate amount of attention compared to the rest. I just wanted to thank Riot for not defaulting to their standard MO when it comes to the (probably) most anticipated skin line this year.
: The skins look awesome, skin colour has never really come to mind when I think of a skin, tbh I don't really think about it until someone brings it up.

That's a good approach, but for some players (like myself) who see extremely few champions that "represent" people like me, we want to say "Hey, thanks Riot for believing that characters with darker skin will do just as well financially as the White/East Asian characters." Riot is one of the biggest gaming companies in the world, and I wanted to applaud them for giving the spotlight to some different looking characters.
: Was also thinking the same thing. :/ Akali and Yasuo re both coded as asian(since there isn't an Asia in runeterra) and regularly get skins. As does Ahri who is similarly Asian coded. For that matter, did Lucian not just get a High Noon skin the past year or so? What. I appreciate the thought behind this thread but it gets a big downvote for me. They picked three African American characters to be in a hip hop band; I wouldn't consider that especially diversive when, stereotypically, hiphop is a predominantly african american style of music

And as for Lucian getting a Legendary Skin last year in 2018... Here's been the big skins this year -Bewitching MF (Prestige'd) -High Noon Ashe (Legendary) -Valiant Sword Riven (Prestige'd) -Prestige Star Guardian Neeko -Star Guardian Xayah (Legendary) -Star Guardian Rakan (Legendary) -Project Irelia (Prestige'd) **-Project Pyke (Legendary)** -Arcade Caitlyn (Prestige'd) -Battle Academia Lux (Prestige'd) -Battle Academia Ezreal (Legendary) -Prestige K/DA Evelynn -Galaxy Slayer Zed (Legendary) -Fuzzy Fizz (Prestige'd) -Prestige K/DA Ahri -Firecracker Vayne (Prestige'd) -Blood Moon Aatrox (Prestige'd) > [{quoted}](name=OtterlyLost,realm=NA,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=idIMNhnU,comment-id=0000000000000000,timestamp=2019-10-29T18:50:17.779+0000) > > She is likely more mayan/Aztec. Maybe even Latin american or something in that area. Maybe I misunderstood the OP but I assumed they were reading Qiyana as African American To me Qiyana is pretty clearly based off of Mesoamerican civilizations, though a Rioter can come tell me I'm wrong. Maybe you should stop assuming things; it's revealing how you're _really_ approaching this topic.

Why are the Vice skins actually Synthwave? Where's the real 80s Vice Squad cop skins and not this faux 80s crap?
: Is it just me or the Battle Academia event just came and went just like that?
It was a soulless skin line trying to capitalize on weeb trends. It was a bad move all around, but at least some people enjoyed it
: "Red Kayn" or Rhaast?
I always thought it was better to differentiate between the two because laners may not realize he evolved. "Rhaast heading top through river" and "Kayn heading top through river" set up two very different situations, and the same goes for every lane

: Dude, playing support or using the fill option literally makes it impossible for you to be autofilled for one game. At least in NA, if two people from EUW are saying otherwise it might be different in EUW than NA. Playing support or using fill makes it so on your next queue you are garunteed one of your selected roles. you cannot be autofilled.
Playing support doesn't exempt you from autofill since autofill isn't exclusive to support. Out of my last 10 autofills seven were top lane, two were jungle, and only one was Support.

Meh, a group of friends reported me to the Super League people and I got insta-kicked from the tournament; no chance to talk to refs or anything. Luckily, I got some sweet highlights of me getting pentas. I'd recommend staying away from Super League until they fix the trolls who try to fix the winrate by throwing.

You won't get the all chat supporter announcement, but the C9 regular season icon does give you the [C9] name tag. The bundle is essentially for the emote only, since the icon is barely different from the 2018 season icons Edit: Yes, it fucking sucks this year.

: LCS Diversity
If you're attacking the players: 1. Teams pick from the top of the top. They do not hire bronzies to train all the way to LCS ready. I get that lots of low ELO people dream of being scouted for a team and trained to the top, but it isn't happening because it isn't worth the investment that may not pay off. The NFL doesn't hire eight-year-olds from peewee football leagues; those eight-year-olds who dream of it work hard and get scouted. 2. The players are as diverse as they are. In NA and EU the top players are random people of all backgrounds who dedicated tons of time to becoming great. No grand conspiracy. If you're attacking Riot hiring for on-air talent: 1. Yes, Riot's NA face will always be the white dudes, and I'm sure in the future they'll be hiring friends of those white dudes. 2. Riot won't get busted for their hiring practices because they have an extremely diverse employee base - just not casting. I'm sure I could get a janitorial job ezpz

I just checked your last game and it looks like the game went too long. Your bottom performers were outpaced and you guys couldn't end against that comp. Plus, you were up against Jinx. Yeah, Draven does tons of damage, but Jinx is extremely capable of defending against your comp.

Other people need help, objectives need to be secured, wards need to be placed and busted. It's a team game. You don't let anyone sink. You ESPECIALLY don't let your bottom lane partner sink. If you play bottom or support, you guys are there to help each other. Bottom lane is won by two or more people, not one. You should try jungling. It seems to be more your style and your future bot laners will be thankful not to have a player seeking any opportunity to tilt and throw the lane.
Ernie (NA)
: Reddit is curiously silent about the jungle changes
The League sub is just an expansion of the Riot boards with the exception that Rioters don't have to follow the same strict rules they follow on the official site. It isn't shocking. Reddit is just another forum ruled by the people by the top.
Lost R (NA)
: Many times it isn't just the ADC. I had two different top laners today autotilt over me killing the enemy ADC in the very early game and just quit. I follow my own code of conduct during games. Everyone wants to be the killfastest killfast of Killfastia and generally go all assassin or all ADC, even in roles they have no business doing it in. I'm under no obligation to shadow the ADC's every move, and if he proves to be inadequate or scatterbrained, I'm just going to leave him once the lanes have opened up and pressure another player to help take objectives, kill people or push/defend lanes. Killfasts are a dime a dozen at their rarest, but there is only one support.
That's a pretty toxic mentality you got there. I agree with the idea that supports shouldn't be flamed for taking a couple of kills, but I get the feeling your "I do whatever I want" mentality helps your teammates tilt and flame.

Looking at your history I'd say keep using Miss Fortune, Warwick/Yi, and that's it. I _easily_ climbed out of Bronze with Miss Fortune. It's important to remember you're playing to win and you have the skills to do so. You can't tilt, you can't pick off-meta junk, and you have to treat each win and loss as a learning experience.

: I feel new Swain and Vlad have too similar designs.
The appeal of Swain (to me) was the fact that he was visually off-putting but still rose above thanks to his mind. Darius got him to the top because he knew a guy like Swain would never make it to the top due to being a crippled, veiny, elder guy. The new look is just another handsome aristocrat like Vlad. We already have Vlad for that.
: Her visuals don't fit League. She looks like a character from a Disney Pixar movie.
I agree. In a game with humans and yordles, she looks like a weird hybrid. Limbs too long to look human like Annie, legs not thicc enough to be a Tristana style yordle.

The change won't stay. This is better for Riot, but much worse for the teams financially. The casual fans don't buy team merch. The casual fans don't follow individual team members outside of the LCS stage. This isnt just a "fuck you" to dedicated fans, it's also aimed at the teams. I hope this is ends up being a disaster so the esports industry can see what not to do and keep on growing in a positive direction
