: Some Ideas I Believe Would Benefit League For The Future.
OP. I 100% agree with enforcing champ roles. The thought occurred to me just before I quit league about locking the champs you are even able to select based on the role you get assigned. If you get put top lane then you should only be allowed to play top laners, if you get put mid you should only be allowed to pick a midlaner and so on. Then I realized that this dogshit community would just find a way to abuse this by locking dumbshit, like adc quinn then lane swapping with top who picked someone like xin or tryn or someone who can flop in and delete a squishy adc. Then the thought occurred to me. League is not a competitive game. It can't be by definition. It's not a zero sum game which is why Riot removed ELO in the first place. League literally cannot be competitive, it's a non-zero-sum game which means it's closer to poker than to chess except poker is better than league. Imagine going to a casino and sitting down at the table and the dealer puts 4 cards face down in front of you and gives you a card, the card is random because your odds of winning are random; there's no telling if you're going to be put against a smurf, if you're going to be camped into oblivion by the jungler, the only thing you can know for sure is you're playing the game, your skill level is relative to the situation; even the best players in the world can't go 150 cs by 12 minutes when there are 2 people roaming top every 30-60 seconds to delete them... your card is random, it's value is irrelevant because the dealer tells you to place your bets, and you're betting your LP; and you either get to fold or place your bets before you're allowed to flip your cards over. Poker is effectively more fair of a game than league, consider that fact; consider that one of the oldest scams in history, card games, is actually a more fair and more balanced game than league of legends. I digress... Chess is a game that plays out exactly the same way every time with exactly the same pieces every time. 8 pawns, 2 rooks, 2 knights, 2 bishops, a king and a queen. White moves first. The strategy is the same, and yet... it is the most popular game of all time and has been for centuries. League is like chess, except you don't know if your opponent is going to have 8 pawns, 2 rooks, 2 knights, 2 bishops and a king and queen or if they're going to have a bazooka to blow up the board. Unless the conditions for victory are the same every single time then the game can't be competitive, at best it's rolling dice where you can flip one of the die at will to slightly impact your final score. Then I realized that league is an unfun nightmare that cannot be fixed by it's very nature; it is what it is... and then I quit. And the next day patch 9.14 came out and I couldn't stop laughing.

: In the nicest way possible, the balance team and ranked design team is absolutely clueless.
I literally don't care about broken champions, the problem I see is on a foundational level; matchmaking is like playing russian roulette. Am I going to get a game where I go 0-2 deaths for the first 15 minutes while my team feeds a collective 30 kills, am I going to end 3/6/2 because it's literally impossible to catch up to the other team or am I going to get a normal game that feels good to play where both teams are roughly evenly matched. To be honest, I wish every champ was buffed to the point where individual champs being strong meant nothing, like Dota 2. Improve everyone's scaling, buff "late game" champs because every match is over by 15-25 minutes now instead of dragging on for 45-60 minutes, give *everyone* more options, more armor, more MR, more damage, more lifesteal, more everything. Buff the shit out of minions and increase their gold by 10-20% (30 for caster minions, 35 for melee minions) and make pushing waves an actual decision, "do I push now? hmmm... if I clear this wave will I be able to do anything with this? Nah... I'll defend my wave" make players actually consider their creeps rather than completely ignore them and try to bash each other in between last hitting; I remember when we used to stand around our creeps and whack anyone trying to last hit, now it's "oh... cs? Meh... if I get first blood I'll get like 200% the amount of gold... or if I zone him even if I miss 3 or 4 or even a whole wave I'll be able to farm until he gets back... yeah... I'ma do that.." Riot needs to stop balancing this game around what's fun to watch pros do. I've never watched a pro game EVER, I don't give a fuck how "fast paced" the LCS is. Most people DON'T WATCH THIS SHIT, in 2018 the english streams peaked at around 450,000 people watching. There are around 81 million people supposedly playing this game world wide. Now I'm no math wiz but that's 0.55% of the playerbase. No one gives a fuck about that shit.
: it feels like shit if i dont pick from the top 5 champs in each role right now and its not cause op
Welcome to league of legends; try Dota 2 instead. Every hero is viable, every hero serves a purpose. Love playing support but worried your team will suck? Lock in Lina or Lion and cook fools dead. Wanna hyper carry and be a big balls big plays mofo? play literally any hero. Monkey King, Phantom Lancer, Phantom Assassin, Drow Ranger, Luna, Mirana, Faceless Void, Juggernaut, Axe, Doom, Anti-Mage, Kunka, Bloodseeker, Invoker, Weaver, Ember Spirit, Chaos Knight, Sven, Morphling, Dragon Knight, Timbersaw, Huskar, Lycan.... jesus... literally 90% of the roster can carry, even Venomancer can carry. Wanna play a roaming ganker/support? Ursa, Tusk, Bounty Hunter, Riki, Nyx Assassin, Temple Assassin (also a carry) Wanna play a hero with Urgot's old ult but the range is like 1000 units? VENGEFUL SPIRIT. OP AF. STUNS FOR DAYS, SWAP PLACES WITH DUDES, GET SICK ASSIST GOLD, SHRED ARMOR, BUFF RANGED ATTACKS, Wanna be an absolute fucking weapon cheeseball asshole dildo douchecannon bastard because it's 3am and you're drunk alone with nothing better to do? Refresher orb Zeus with Agha. and Karthus ult TWICE IN A ROW while gaining vision of all the enemies on the map and then drop TWO FUCKIN' NIMBUS CLOUDS ON THEM INSTAND ULTRA KILL. Seriously. I know Dota only has about 500,000 monthly players compared to leagues billion daily players but fuck this game dude, it's garbage and has been garbage since Tencent took over; it's just rotting as the years go by.
: How is this acceptable?
If you have to ask "how is this acceptable" the answer is probably "it's not"; if the thought pops into your head like "wow, that's fucking horseshit, how is this okay?" the answer is "it's not, and you're almost 100% likely not the only person who thinks this", didn't even read the OP, any post on these forums that says something like "wtf is this shit" I instantly know it's some absurd fuck up on Riot's part somewhere, either in their broken matchmaking, some recent bug, or shitty business practices. So to answer your question OP. It's not. It's not acceptable. Stop giving riot money.

: How in the hell would the game play out if item drops weren't random? You get to pick which items you get? Then you end up with everyone running the same items and builds. If you mean making item drops guaranteed but still random which you get. Then sure but in what way? Will it be guaranteed up until you get X amount or maybe minimum 1 guaranteed per npc round? I don't see how this ends up pleasing anyone since even then RNG will still favor some people who get the minimum and then luck still showers them with gifts. I would much prefer a secondary weighting system that adds weight to champions you're super close to 3starring. Lacking a single champion and then requiring 20+ gold in refreshes until they show up is f**king depressing.

"How the hell would the game play out" With strategy like the mod for Dota this game is based on? The Dota 2 mod Riot ripped off is a million times more balanced. A pool of 50 "chess pieces" to pick from at the start of each round. Creeps and enemies drop items. "how would you deal with everyone having the same items" How do you deal with it in summoner's rift? TFT needs to be balanced so certain classes beat other classes. Elementalists lose to shape shifters, shape shifters lose to sorcerers, sorcerers lose to knights and so on. Nobles go even with Imperials, Pirates go even with ninjas, phantoms with wilds, etc. (these are just rhetorical suggestions for the sake of example) They have FUCKING RANKED MATCHMAKING for TFT. Drill that through your head mate, RANKED... LADDER... MATCHMAKING for a completely random game. The only way to solve this is to actually create metas where one brand of champ beats another, if the enemy has a yordle heavy team, you have to build voids (again, just an example) If you see your enemy has a 3 star vayne with rageblade, you have to build an assassin with something else. That's why item drops should be standardized, or better yet. There should be a "shop" where each item costs some amount of gold. maybe 3 or 4? Bang. I've solved the problem and made ranked TFT make sense. You're welcome. In any other scenario where RNG determines the outcome, ranked is meaningless when luck is almost 100% of the factor in winning games.

: When the game is so toxic that people think your positivity is toxic
Reason #382919 why I quit league of legends. I haven't played a single round since Sunday and I feel so much better, been streaming WH40K Dawn of War 2 on primarch difficulty, been having fun; haven't been stressed out over constant LP losses due to going 6 and 27 and having 80% or more of the kills on my team and having 0-2 deaths before 15 minutes game after game after game. This is how they hook you. You win a game or two or three, maybe you go on a win streak, you're getting great games, they're balanced, evenly matched and you feel like you've earned something; then... out of nowhere, whether it's during your promo games and only your promo games, or whether it's as soon as you rank up; you'll get games that go 7 and 21, 3 and 18, 9 and 36, etc. and you scream "I EARNED THAT, I WANT IT BACK" and the cycle continues. Having assholes like that on either team is just a fly in the ointment. If you ever wanna take a break from the dumpster fire that is this game, I stream 4-5 times a week. https://www.twitch.tv/ragincanadian

: Dude this death recap is my JAM. The amount of information available now is so good! And the old one never worked anyways with lots of blanks and errors and shit. Also people will ALWAYS complain. Though the Aatrox rework has been one of Riot's biggest failures even bigger than the ~7? that Ryze has gotten. At least some of Ryze's original kit and playstyle still remains, Aatrox is now just a weird Riven. I do miss my Quint runes and mastery pages. Also new content and changing content is the only way to keep people interested in the game. They cannot let it remain stagnant or player numbers drop like a stone. And sure there is still an atrocious amount of bugfixing for several champions but that's a totally separate team. No reason multiple things cannot be done at the same time.

Dota 2 has been more or less roughly the same since the Reborn update and 485,000 monthly players. Sure, that's no where near as many as league has; but honestly... that's a good thing. Dota will never attract people like league does, there is no denial mechanic, you can't deny creeps or even allies by last hitting them before your enemy does, you can't shift tower agro in league, there's no phantom lancer, phantom assassin, puck, pudge, anti-mage, blink dagger, black king bar, eul's scepter, dagon, etc in league; you can't use a helm of the dominator to stack ancient camps as Luna while still paying attention to the fight you're in. There's no meepo or chen. What I'm saying is, Dota 2 is much harder, much more mechanically challenging, and has actual micro-play that league simply doesn't feature. It's not as casual as league; therefore fewer people will play it. And this is a good thing. 485,000 is better than the 485 people league is going to have in 2-3 years.

: SOLO carry doesn't exist in SOLOq.
Dropped my keyboard and it deleted my comment. Short answer is this. The system thinks you're being boosted and putting you into unwinnable games, I've experienced this many times; always after winstreaks or being promoted. I go from having normal games with a scoreboard something like 27 to 24 to having games where the final score is 7 to 31. Most of the time my teammates feed 2-3 kills before the game even actually starts due to being invaded or failing an invade. I can't count the number of games I've had 80-100% of the kills on the team for the first 15 minutes with 0-2ish deaths only to hit tab and see my adc, mid and jungle are all 0/7, 1/9, 2/12, etc; and verbally say "what the actual fuck" under my breath. Tl;dr. Your MMR is fucked and it's triggering the boosting buster because you probably went on a 2-5 game win streak then lost 10 games in a row that were roughly as I described until you managed to win a few in a row which triggered the boosting buster then lost 10 games in a row.... etc. For the record this happens to streamers the most who play league 10 hours a day every day to earn their paychecks. If you play enough games it's inevitable that it will happen to you, even Hashinshin and other high-elo players get these massive loss streaks, 10, 15, 20 game lose streaks. NORMAL games can be solo carried. NORMAL games (which used to be about 80% of games) don't exist anymore. If you've got 3 idiots on your team instead of 1 or 2 and you're consistently seeing games where exactly 3 idiots feed like wildfire, you're in the booster buster. It's *really* fucking insidious too, because it leaves no proof. There's no way to show when your first death in a game was unless you were present enough to screenshot it every time. You could go 4/1 for the first 20 minutes and have three idiots who went 3 and 12, 1 in 9 and 0 in 10, and by the time you start getting hunted down by their entire fed team, you'll end 5/14 or something like that so it looks like you did just as bad as the rest of the idiots, but YOU know personally, YOU were there. YOU saw it. YOU know you went top and won lane in CS and took your tower before 15... YOU know your ADC fed a kill before creeps even spawned. You KNOW that your jungle died 9 times trying to counter jungle before 25 minutes. But OP.GG won't show this, Blitz won't show this, your in-game match history CERTAINLY won't show this, and the LP you lose will be the exact same as everyone else.

: ADC & Support - Hate Laning With
Am I the only person who takes glacial as lux support and rushes redemption instead of damage items?
: Old Runes
I'd kill for the old runes and mastery system. I'd also like to see the Utility tree completely removed and have utility added to the other mastery pages. Riot has no idea how to do utility, utility is not supposed to be an early game buff (ie; biscuit) it's supposed to be a late game scaling that's weak early and stronger later. I'd also kill for tenacity to come back, cloak and dagger and mastery's like we used to have because it's not fun being stun/root/cc locked for 10 seconds and living through 3 of them. If a team is extremely CC heavy then we should have some way to deal with that, worst example I can think of is amumu jungle, malph top or maoi top, aniva or lux mid, ashe bot and naut or thresh support. That's a million miles of CC and no way besides merc treads to mitigate *some* of it. I miss old league. I barely play and actually officially quit the game the day before the patch came out. Tbh, I miss a lot of the old items, the runes, the mastery system, I miss everything. I miss banner of command, I miss zephyr, I miss the cloak and dagger, I miss malady, I miss tons of items that allowed you to build around a match instead of just rushing the same 3 items and (sometimes) rushing hex drinker. I hate that everyone takes conqueror or grasp top, I hate that every assassin takes electrocute, I hate that every support takes glacial or aftershock. Literally 80% of the "runes" don't get used. Everyone takes demo and bone plating, Legacy Alacrity, and only niche champs take anything else. I played predator lux and got called a troll despite going 13/2 by predator -> ult snipe for bonus damage.

Literally has very little to do with this. Hashinshin explained it and I agree with it. What happens is you get stuck in Matchmaking that thinks you're being carried or boosted and forces a loss, and what happens... especially with lower Elo, is your MMR gets so fucked that it creates a cycle. Lose 3-6 games in a row Finally win, get on a win streak Rito's anti-boosting system kicks in thinking your wins are boosted Lose 3-6 games in a row etc. In the end your MMR ends up completely fucking broken which exacerbates the situation. You end up so behind in wins, my second account is 90 wins 117 losses because of this cycle. The lower your MMR goes the quicker the anti-boosting system kicks in The more the anti-boosting system kicks in the lower your MMR goes until you're literally chasing the green dragon down the rabbit hole telling yourself "just 25 more wins, just 24 more wins, just 27 more wins, just 29 more wins, just 24 more wins, just 22 more wins, just 31 more wins and I'll be even and I'll escape" Nope. Rito fucked the game after years of denying elo hell's existence, they created it with their anti-boost automated system. See, when people go on these lose streaks, they ALWAYS get 3 idiots on their team who feed 5-10 kills before 20 minutes and you and usually one other person are roughly alright. Then they try to surrender. 50% of the time the other guy on your team with a positive or neutral K:D will say yes, 50% of the time they say no. Either way... these games end up going 7 to 26 or something like that where over half your team gets roflstomped into the dirt. This is why I quit league.

Rock paper scissors is hard counters which as you said Riot says they don't want. Riot does want and intentionally makes soft counters.

Riot does want and intentionally makes soft counters. As evidenced by the recent patch notes, where they literally said they added things to counter other things. > (Buffed Kled and Kat to counter healing; buffed Renek and Blitz to counter shields). Please elucidate for me what a "hard counter" is by Riot's definition. Because I'd call Teemo a hard hard HARD counter for Trynd. >trynd blinded, eats 2.5 seconds of damage + DoT poison >trynd no longer blinded still eating teemo autos >trynd ults and tries to kill Teemo. >Teemo's Q is back up. >blind for half of ult. Teemo W's away >hit Q to avoid death from poison >teemo's W still active for another 0.5-1 second >chases poisoned, nearly dead Trynd down >Teemo Q up again >dead. Trynd literally cannot win against Teemo when the skills levels are equal. And according to Rito, match making attempts to force a 50% +/- 1% win rate, meaning ideally you'll be matched against a lane that is more or less roughly equal to you in skill level. Literally the only way to win against Teemo in lane is to go D. Shield and Hex first item which makes you less than useful after lane phase without raw damage/tiamat to wave clear/split push. Teemo makes Trynd irrelevant, zones Tryn off farm and beats him in lane 100% of the time unless you get extremely lucky and play against a teemo that is leagues below your own skill level.
: According to riot, they don't believe in counterpicks in the first place. And its not like the op is stating that those champs simply beat kled in lane without playing it right and managing to disengage from trades before he gets his 4 autos in.... Lets also not FORGET THAT KLED IS A SNOWBALL HEAVY CHAMP IN THE FIRST PLACE he should not have any easy lanes unless his enemy is a scaling champ. Turning a matchup where kled would need to actually need to play perfectly in order to dominate lane and snowball or roam, into a matchup he just wins is stupid. This game is not rock paper scissors, nobody asked for it to be rock paper scissors, go find another game if that's what you believe in.

: Worst patch of the season so far? (voting)
Only since 9.13???? This game has been a towering trash inferno since at *least* mid season 7. Everything started going downhill around that time and it's progressively gotten worse and worse and worse. This is why the player base has been on a decline for the last 3 years, why league is no longer the #1 stream on twitch, why the LCS viewership has been declining for the last 3 years. This game as been fucked for years; people keep defending it, no matter what Riot does but it has been completely fucked since the juggernaut patch. Here's the problem. Riot sees a champion doing well, the player base complains and then Riot nerfs that champion out of the game rather than actually addressing the problem, they eliminate the problem. Happened to Lissandra, happened to Olaf, happened to Jayce, happened to Poppy. All of these champs used to have relatively healthy 51-52% winrates and now they're down to about 45-48% and have been basically nerf'd out of play. I remember when I couldn't even play top without going cheese because Jayce was dominating the lane, now; I've seen once Jayce in the last 300 games. Riot doesn't fix the problem by adjusting counter champs do deal with a certain bully or dominating champ; they just nuke their stats or rework them into complete uselessness, as happened to Kayle. She was in a good place, then the rework happened, then she was slightly better, then Riot nerf'd her early game so hard she's never played. Riot has created a domino effect and it will destroy their game within the next year or two; and it's pretty much all Tencent's fault. GG

: It's time for "LOL 2"
I'd completely agree with you if it weren't for one thing... Icefrog, the man behind DotA created something that was mod for an existing game which eventually become DotA allstars, which eventually spawned League, HoN, HotS and a few other derivatives. The people behind League literally worked on DotA . And Dota 2 was GREAT until Volvo pushed through the "Reborn Update" and just like "Runes Reforged" for league being pushed through by Tencent, it completely killed the game as we knew it and replaced it with something very much different and very much less fun... So the point I'm making here is this; League doesn't have what DotA had... a truly independent developer and a League 2 would suffer the same fate even quicker than Dota 2's Reborn update... because the problem isn't the game the problem is Riot and Tencent; any property they're in control of is going to be a raging pile of shit and a massive dumpster fire; they're like King Midas but everything they touch turns into feces instead of gold.

: Riot, are you seriously going to allow people to play the game when the game is severely bugged out?
I quit league the day before this patch came out, and I've been laughing my ass off ever since. I can't believe you people still mindlessly support this dumpster fire of a company. Riot doesn't control league anymore, Tencent does. Tencent says "we want this, this and that" and that's why league is nothing like it was in S3-5 (the silver era of league was the best for competitive, S1-2 being the golden age where things were actually fun prior to M5 setting the meta that's existed ever since despite so many changes to the game that make the meta ineffective in my cases) The game has been dead for years. Honestly I feel very much like a Titanic survivor being interviewed by the news. "Sir, what does it feel like knowing you survived and others perished on the sinking ship" And I have to act very sad and solemn, "oh, I would give anything to trade places with one of those people, being alive is such a burden... I just wish that it was me instead of them..." and in my head I'm thinking (gosh.... I can't wait to get home to sleep with my wife, gosh I'm tired) The life-rafts are there people. Just uninstall! You don't even have to uninstall forever! Just uninstall long enough for Tencent to realize their mistake. If even 5-10% of the player base stopped playing, changes would happen OVER-FUCKING-NIGHT. Meanwhile, I'll just keep laughing.

Voting system working as intended in that regard. The word of a paid shill is worth less than a crooked penny to me. I'm objectively not wrong. The flaw of Reddit and boards like Reddit boils down to something very simple. Popularity. This is not an anonymous board, reputation and popularity influence how people will judge whether someone is correct or incorrect and influence the way they view a post. Reddit with their beta bux gold and platinum and upvote system is a hugbox for egotistical degenerates who circle jerk over popular opinions. Upvote style boards work when the board is anonymous, but with an anonymous board upvotes lose meaning because there is no reputation and no credit to the individual making a post. So no. *you're* wrong. Just like with Reddit, this board is controlled by a small clique of popular gatekeepers whose opinions will be upvoted no matter what and everything else is left to the contrarian clique who will, for example, argue that Nubrac was wrong to do what he did without communicating but then downvote a post about bringing back the refusal to communicate report opinion. *you* are wrong. I could build a Rube Goldberg machine that leads to a boot on a spring bouncing up and kicking me in the nuts, it works as intended but the intended product is still a kick in the nuts. The Reddit style board works as intended, because the intended function is to pander to the lowest common denominator and suppress wrongthink or unconventional ideas in favour of the popular opinion, and I can see by your post and your downvote on my post that it is indeed working as intended.

Unironically runes reforged was a terrible terrible move. All it did was allow fresh level 30s to jump into ranked. I liked the old system where people had to "farm" (aka... play the game... and get experience... and essentially practice) IP to purchase rank 3 runes to be viable in ranked gameplay. It was a positive form of gatekeeping and anyone who didn't do it ended up with like... a 72MMR lmao. Of course you could say something similar today but no... it's not like that... I see people in bronze (my second account is frozen in ELO hell, my main account is plat 4) with literally a million points on their champ (only one Kai'sa) and an average of about 50-100k points on their champ matched with people who have 4k points on their champ, or 0 points on their champ. People who are level 200+ matched with people who are fresh 30s, or against people who are unranked. The old system was better and Rito screwed the pooch by meddling with it... by homogenizing rune and mastery pages where people literally only play fleet footwork, conqueror and grasp except for a few niche picks like kayle top which sucks now that klepto has been nerfed.

I'm not giving Riot a single cent until they fix the dumpster fire that is ranked. Every skin I own is one I have gotten for free.
: Vayne: Has to do literal backflips in order to be a successful carry
Yeah the amount of lifesteal in this game means that adcs like kog, trist and twitch can sit there and facetank 1v1s and 2v1s most of the time once they're farmed and come out on top. Comparing ADCs in the current game is like saying "well a hydrogen bomb is better than a plutonium bomb", to a Hiroshima survivor.

The matchmaker is *not* 50% +/- 1%.
: [Discussion]: Matchmaking
What is there to discuss? about 60% of my games are complete dumpster fires where 2-4 of my teammates feed 15 kills before I get my first death (top main) Doesn't matter if I win lane, doesn't matter if I out farm. I'm quitting until riot fixes this complete trash fire of an excuse for matchmaking if I get another game that goes 7-33. THAT'S NOT BALANCED. My winrate was 55% 3 weeks ago. it's now 47% purely because I promote once and then get 4 window lickers on my team. I'm not being dramatic when I say if I get another game in a row (it will be the 5th game in a row) I'm quitting and playing SC2 or a single player game until Riot fixes this asinine bullshit. *edit* "Learn to carry" used to mean something. You *used* to be able to carry 2-4 ass hats if you were good enough. Now, because of the amount of snowball in this game, it doesn't matter if I've got 300cs and 5 items built with only 2 or 3 careful picks and 0-2 deaths, I'll end up going 4/6 or 5/8 while the rest of my team is 1/12 or 2/16 Something is seriously wrong and I'm NOT having fun. Another thing I've noticed is that I am NEVER on the team that goes 30+ kills against the enemy's 5 kills. I have NEVER once been on the team where everyone completely face stomps the other team. I win my lane more often than not. I take my tower first more often than not. (Olaf, Tryn and Urgot are my go to picks unless I have to hard counter something stupid like quinn top) and I can split push ALL day long, I can't stop 3-5 fed enemies solo. Last game I literally had a jax who didn't know how his counterstrike worked. I've also noticed too, that I only get these games between about 7pm and 7am my time. All of my win streaks happen from around 9am to noon-1pmish and then it's feed city. Something is really going wrong when I'm being matched with people who have 200 ping and 26% winrates (like the morde jungle on my team) something is seriously seriously wrong.

: Riot needs to clarify how matchmaking works
It's really simple OP. If you have 2 wins your next game is going to be a shit show. If you have 8 losses, Riot will pair you with idiots against slightly worst idiots and expect you to carry.

: Does anyone out there remember humans are animals?
I feel like this topic should get locked so I don't get banned from writing 30 paragraphs about human biological determinism, clustered genetic variance, and biological realism, taxonomical revisionism and refute the "out of africa theory" with the multi-regional hypothesis. Yes, humans are animals. There are approximately 16 different X chromosome haplogroups with different roots and origins and places of derivation, there are some 4-5 mtDNA haplogroups each with their own derivation and origins. The human "race" is far more nuanced and complex than social scientists and pop-science like Bill Nye want to lead gullible idiots into believing. In all of nature there is NO equality, there is *order*, there is the *order* of life, the Lion eats the Gazelle, the Gazelle eats the grass, the dead fertilize new growth to feed the herbivores, the herbivores feed the carnivores, and the cycle is complete. There is order and structure and perfect harmony. As Nasus says "The cycle of life and death continues", all organisms compete for survival, for space, for resources, for breeding and sustenance. "Human beings" need to be reordered on the taxonomical tree. There is a smaller biological divergence between Chimpanzees and Bonobos than between Native Sami people of Sweden and Sub-Saharan Africans. We recognize the differences in "lesser organisms" like lower order apes; IE... chimps and bonobos, but we WILL not turn the lens towards ourselves... There *are* distinct sub-species within the genus "homo" and they should be recognized for what they are. There are 14 different sub-species of brown bear classed, scientifically classed, as *races* of brown bear and we understand this and accept this. The "Human race" is no different. Even among Europeans, the structure of the foot can show from which region we're descended, Celts, Romans and Germanic descendants have different foot shapes and different phalanx (toe bones) structures. We adapt and evolve to thrive in a set environment, no different from the Kodiak and Grizzly, two subspecies of brown bear... it would be morally and ethically wrong to force the mixture of Kodiak and Grizzly bears by artificially introducing one to the other environment, and so... as an intellectually honest person I have to assert that human sub-species conservationism is an integral facet of any environmental protectionism. As Madison Grant once said; "No man has divine commission to pollute the streams with sawdust, to destroy the forest with axe and fire, or to kill every living thing within reach of trap, shot or poisoned bait. The mere fact that man has the power to destroy does not, in itself, confer a right" I find it morally reprehensible to disrupt the order of nature that has emerged through reproductive success for the sake of proving some arbitrary moral supposition. tl;dr. I agree OP

: Just for ONCE can we have a meta where ADC aren't the best champions in the game
Dunno what you're doing in S9 but in every game I've played, ADCs are basically peeling supports for whichever juggernaut roams the most, Garen, Darius, Nasus, etc. Nasus players be like "Hey ADC, play ashe so you can slow my meals for me"
: Can we fix solo q Simple solutions.
I have literally the opposite problem. Main account plat 4, my second account is literally permalocked in bronze 4. Every time I get matched, I get matched against people who are either win-trading (no evidence to support this but god damn...) or against smurfs who snowball by 5 minutes where the scoreboard is 2 to 17 by 10 minutes. I can't get my gimped account out of bronze, no matter what. The "Just learn to carry" argument *does not* apply to season 9. I honestly think the balance issues are the result of two things 1. Tencent and Rito want people to spend money on TFT stuff 2. The current lawsuit Both of these things have league basically sitting on the back burner. My main account was ranked gold 2 and I carried to plat 4 in 150 wins. My other account is stuck going 1 win 1 loss, 2 wins 3 losses, 2 wins 1 loss, 1 win 1 loss, etc. The level of imbalance in low ELO is *absurd* right now. Games are either kinda fun, kinda okay, or complete rofl stomps where my 4 "at elo" teammates feed 20-30 kills and I'm the last person to die, and the scoreboard ends 6 to 41 or something absurd like that. The problem exists across all ELOs. I'd like to report on silver, but I haven't gotten my alt there yet.

The problem I see then is that there are so few roles and so few champions that can carry a game. This isn't dota 2 where a Lina can switch from being support to carry mid game, or a Lion, or a Skywrath or an Undying, etc. Itemization and, frankly, the AD/AP/AR/MR system rather than the STR/AGI/INT system of dota doesn't allow champions to switch their tactics up midgame and actually come from behind a feeding or incompetent troll "carry" to bust out a 1250 damage Laguna Blade with aghanim's scepter and follow up with a level 5 dagon clickie. In this game, if you're a soraka support, or a naut jungle/support you're at the mercy of your team. If, and I agree 100% with you, the problem is *that* then champs need to be buffed to dota 2 levels or the system needs to be brought to heel in some other way to make a 4v5 possible. These stats speak volumes https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/35in3r/4v5_some_statistical_analysis/ and I'd argue that a feeding team mate or even two is just as bad or worse than an afk meaning the stats are comparable. So then what is the solution to this problem?

: 90% of the games i played the the last week i had
Yep. I've noticed this, inb4 conspiracy theory. I've noticed that I *never* get on the team that has 30+ kills against the other team. I've noticed that I am *always* the victim of this and never the beneficiary of this. I either have to play my ass off in a fair game to win, OR I may as well afk because bot and mid and jg have fed 25 kills by 10 minutes and I'm sitting top 2/0/0 wondering what the fuck is going on. Then my lane TPs bot, I'm pinging like crazy for them to pull back before he gets there, trying to CC him before he does... nope, nevermind DOUBLE KILL, now we're even, then I get 2 or 3 v 1'd and it's gg. I hate this game. I'd say about 30-40% of my games in the last 2 weeks have been like this.

inb4 "just play better" It's a lie. These people base the "just play better" bullshit on a few streamers they watch who are diamond 1s and masters and challengers. There is no "play better" when your team decides to feed 20 kills by 10 minutes and you're sitting in lane like "guys....? uhhh... guys? Oh god... why! NOOOOOOOOO" going 1/0/2 for the first 15 minutes with 150 CS and magically your enemy lane comes back with 3 kills that your bot fed him for some reason despite you pinging missing and watching him TP away, giving them the alert ping they decide "heh, we can 2v4 easily, we're only 2-7 and 0-6, this time we definitely got this fight, they'll never expect this therefore we'll take them by surprise and win" "An ally has been slain"

: Riot's idea of playing with ranked.
inb4 someone accuses you of being a conspiracy theorist. For the record everything you said makes sense to me and I 100% believe it. Riot is a corporate entity, their a subsidiary of Tencent. Their ONLY goal is to make money and show quarterly earnings. They'll do whatever is necessary to guarantee those earnings to their shareholders. This is why "influencers" and "riot partners" get free skins and a limited number of skin codes to give away as prizes to their viewers. It's literally all one big marketing scheme. Of course Riot would probably handicap popular streamers and youtubers and give them better winrates. Anyone who believes otherwise doesn't understand capitalism or corporations.
