Riot defines boosting as activity, where player plays ranked on other player's account in order too boost their elo. Therefore as long as the master players isn't playing on his girlfriend's account, he will be fine.

No, they aren't getting punished, not at least until Riot makes announcement out of the subject.

Given that your game started (you were in loading screen after champ select) before 23.59 server time, then that last game you played will be counted, and therefore you will earn gold rewards.

: Then what is the point of that window? Besides nothing?
I think main purpose for it is to give feeback that your reports had effect, without making it apparent who got punished. To my understanding chatrestrictions never send that window, only actual bans. Therefore it's likely that if one of the persons that was flaming you got punished, you wouldn't know a thing unless they were toxic in a way that would justify system to skip punishments. And even then punishment wouldn't ncessarily occur immediately but could need some games more with offences or it could just be applied later anyway.

https://i.imgur.com/ywdsTAf.png https://pics.me.me/solo-duo-flex-5v5-tft-flex-3v3-last-seasons-rank-platinum-63417552.png You get 2 kind of notifications in form of triangles. The yellow warning triangle tells that you have far lower mmr than expected for the league but you aren't going to drop just yet. The red on the other hand means that any further loss** could mean** demotion. However, from experience I can say that if you have bounced between red and yellow for some time, there is chance that even with yellow one showing, loss could demote you. Yet I would advice not to trust these notifications blindly but rather watch lobby borders for instance. If in gold you would for instance start to see lots of silver 4 borders and very rarely gold ones, my advice, at least this close to end of season, would be stop playing ranked untill season ends. Shield games block each loss that would lead to demotion, altogether each player gets 10 shield games each time and only when they promote into new tier (from silver to gold for instance). And no, your question wasn't dumb at all, I could have explained it little better.

: TFT Missions - Play X amount of games...
Usually there are some such as play x number of y class/element champions, spend x amount of gold on rerolling etc. And no, I'm not suggesting completing these missions would feel rewarding, personally I'm playing as there weren't any missions and just pick up rewards. The question is, what kind of missions would feel both rewarding and be plausible to complete even by those who are new to TFT? Certainly having mission such as get 9 synergies would need dedication, but then again how many would manage to pull those off? And if so, how many times would one need to play in order to succeed? I remember trying 5 times when there was mission to get 3-star before stage 3 first round starts. So, I would try to hyperroll 4 times, always surrendering after the attempt failled, before finally 5th time I got it right...to achieve 120 points. Hooray. And I think it is fair to say points as rewards don't feel all that rewarding. On the other hand, for better or worse, having missions give instantly icon or something would exclude those who don't have time to complete it or idea how to do it. Personally I'm waiting for my pengu emote and anouncement of rest of the ranked rewards. Maybe lifetime quest for getting 100hp-game would be something, but those tend to come down to luck.
: You cant permabann a person for having a bad game... GG Riot
10-chat restrictions is warning, don't behave like this or you might get banned. 20-chat restrictions is second warning. 2-week ban is the third and last warning, and clearly states that further offences may lead to permanent suspension of your account. Ofcourse in some cases you could have skipped restrictions and gone straight into 2-week ban, but in that case the behaviour has been so toxic that it may have been mercy not to slam perma instantly. So, if this chat log would have been your only offense, no, you wouldn't get banned for this. But after 2-week ban it only takes one wrong step and your account is gone. I'm sorry for your loss.

And, not only that, I could spot atleast another yi before you hit vayne 2, potentially there was even more due to facecam blocking view to the fifth slot in the shop(move it right on top of the map, rather than on top of the shop.)meaning chance to hit yi 2, with talisman and rageblade before you hit vayne 2( and get 2 bm+4 mystic for instance at lv 8 (soraka, yi, janna, nami, +4 lights)) Yet the spatula and cloak were never combined into anything...

: Haha I have a lot of downvotes from fanboys because they know I am telling the truth so they must silence me Feels good to be always right
Well, assuming these downvotes are purely from "fanboys", you should expect to have some upvotes from players who support your thought. This hasn't been the case. Besides, how do you define fanboy? If that is person who simply disagrees with you, that's horrible definition. Be rather constructive with your argumentation, give multiple well thought out reasons why, don't just shout. And feeling to be "always right" isn't good sign by any means. If something, it shows total incompetence in being able to look subject from multiple perspectives. By definition, Dunning-Kruger effect. No-one is trying to even silence you, everyone has total access to this thread, just as before. If something, your thread is getting more attention due to people being generally interested of what is all the fuss about, myself included. I don't have specific opinion about the subject. I dont enjoy seeing my champion banned, but just as well I don't want see first time Sennas in my lobbies. Yet I believe every player should be have roster of few picks, not just one particular one that will make or break them. And for both opinions you find supporters. Just in this case you have handled the criticism so poorly, that even those who would otherwise support you, won't dare to touch this thread.

Adding to this: It would be impossible have balanced pro play and have balanced solo queue. At the point people get so good in the game, even the smallest things start to matter greatly (though don't matter all that much in sdoloq). Mechanically demanding champions will stay on weaker side(for average player) while simple champions (unless crazy numbers) will stay out of proplay. It is compromise of having all champions viable in solo queue while not breaking pro scene. And before it's even suggested once again: No, i don't think having separate patches would do any good. Simply put those who at some point become pros start their journey at soloqueue. Being for example told that "Btw, Ryze operates completely different here in LCS." doesn't make much sensem, yet would alienate average player even more from the play seen on big stages.
King Ray (EUW)
: Will I still be eligible for Season Rewards if I drop down to Silver?
No. Rewards are distributed basing on final rank. That being said, dropping from gold 4 would demand having mmr tanked to silver 4 level, which would take quite some time and you will get multiple warning signs of this. So if you have yet to see any notification about the demotion in client, you should be able to play ranked without worries.
: TFT arena theme skins
I think biggest problem with rift skins is how they built "new rift" back in 2014. Basically, as they put it, it's built as a painting. Where ever they could, they would avoid creating individual 3d-models for assets, but rather use lots of texturing tricks to bring the map alive. Basically the map is one giant 3d-model, designed only to be watched from one perspective and having no polygons in places where eye can't see (hence in 3rd person views you often see through walls and so on). The way they have pulled off snow rift (after the update) is by using shaders in inventive ways and changing textures a little bit. Changing more than little bit is problematic due to how the model for map is built. Now where it really comes down if such skins were created is patching. Skins generally have no issues with this due to them affecting only character models, animation and visual effects. Having whole map on the other hand creates questions that would need to be solved. For instance, just after some weeks, the map changes basing on dragons and just top and bot lanes get this towerlike paths. The point is, by having arena skins they would need to change them whenever they change something in map. Yet skins should never affect readability of map. Another question would be, are they seen by all or individual experiences? In former the problem is, whose map skin is selected and just as well why should those enjoying normal rift be forced to play on such map? And in latter the problem may be are they even worth it as only personal experiences? And while they could release snowdown skin(or other ones used in events) I would doubt this. Simply put it would take away from these events feeling special. If they on the other hand made new arena skins, the problems would be how much can they even change in how the map looks and readability of the map staying same despite the skin. Yet what would these skins cost? Tft arenas avoid many of these issues due to there being no interactions with arena. Only thing that matters is are those 56 hexes, everything around them can be changed (no walljumps, no flashes through walls etc.). Yet the way each player has own arena avoids players being forced to play on one player's skin or maps only showing to person using the skin.. Yet this suits well to one being defender and one being invader.

: [TFT] Arena Skins for RP...
Little legends: Create one character model, vfx effects for it, animations Arena: Create multiple models for structures, create multiple vfx effects and animations for objects Simply put, amount of work needed for arenas is more than for little legends. Yet little legends, due to the system how you collect them, don't even need to be as expensive individually. And yes, little legends will bring more money in, many, myself included, are more than happy with arena skins or chromas(whatever they are called) got as mission rewards not to mention many will spend more money to get 3 star versions, something arena skins can't do(buy arena, that's it. Buy one egg, buy another, and another...). But still, from the work amount standpoint, the higher price makes sense.

That is good goal in my opinion, but could cause some issues when players figure out the meta(which will inevidably happen at some point). Perhaps getting easy 3-stars for less played champs will combat this, but as seen with set 1, synergy always beats amount of 3 stars. The very least they have to pay really close attention in keeping things in check. Hm, we will see. So far I see people winning with synergy and 3 star units. And then I am second or third based on synergy alone because my 3 star never came. But hey,.. top 4 is good enough right ;-)

This just in theory. I have to say that it was quite bold move to hard cut pool sizes. And yes, I'm aware of players getting 3stars with synergies, I was more thinking an idea that you could get seemingly crazy amount of those by playing less played synergies compared to meta ones, but this is just as well theory. I don't see even in this set amount of 3 stars as the most donimating factor due to some high tier champions being extremely strong(Zed, Yorick, Olaf seem to be good contenders) but rather tools that may give comps boost in strenght.

Yet in some cases the trait symbols have stayed even when I have got rid of all druids and woodland champions.
: If i were you i would err on the side of caution and not use anything custom. There's always the chance that the server may think you are tampering with the game as way to cheat and ban you for that. In doubt, better not risk that.
Yet adding to this, getting banned for 3rd party softwares leaves you very little to debate about the justification of the ban. They won't share any info what excactly caused the ban other than it was some program on your computer. I used Wooxy few years back (2016 I think) for custom skins, didn't get banned during the few months I used them but decided to backaway after client update same year. I cannot say other than use wooxy at your own risk. It might not have generally gotten players banned as far as I can tell, but if you for whatever reason get banned due to it, your account is screwed.
: But then what’s stopping people from just going victorious Janna and taking away the value of that skin. Might not seem like much to you but to people who earned that skin it’s taking a lot away from them
I think yet even more intersting is that noone even needs to choose the v janna, not 1 single person in the world. The skin loses instantly its value if it is available again after the initial distribution in s2. The potential of players getting the skin later breaks the exclusivity, not the number of players choosing to do so.

Sad you didn't had more facts or we could have had a nice chat. Come again when you actually know more about the subject you are responding to. In run to reach 300 lp (14 games from 0 lp) I played pure brawler jinx 7 times, void brawlers with kaisa as carry(items same as for jinx, includes jinx 2) 2 times, jinx brawlers once, six sorc dragon 3 times and once wild shapesifter. That makes 10 out of 14 builds that built jinx or kaisa (both comps built very similarly) as their main carry, with only one of them using knights instead of brawlers as damage absorbtion. Yet in previous patch you could (before it got extremely popular) force dragon guardian knights every single game and reach challenger with it as this [fellow](https://www.reddit.com/r/CompetitiveTFT/comments/dhbcft/how_to_rush_level_8_and_abuse_it/) did.
: Bring back the old TFT!!
Everyone has to learn from scratch, that goes to all players, from bronzes to challengers. If you are leaving game for it, that is fine. Matter of fact is that for many who had played the whole season, the meta started to get more and more boring, not to mention some questionable mechanics (cough* phtantom, dragon and hextech) had lost their "exciting moments" long ago. This won't be the last change, four months from now (or 3) the same will happen again. And again. And despite the changes it actually is very same game, just with different roster. Principles of transitioning, econing, positioning and so on are all the same, just pawns are different. And no, it being different roster doesn't make argument for worse game, to my experience the new roster and traits seem to allow more interactivity rather than having brawlers or knights as frontline, slam in mage or carry and you have a team. You got mystics giving mr (counter mages), warden creating heavy armor tanks, desert countering the said tanks and so on. Yet map changing is giving nice twist. If not for nostalgia reasons, my perception of the set would be now that it is better version of the game, though as meta defines, this may quickly change. We'll see.
: Ranked TFT decay warning
It is most likely visual bug. Besides, dropping now will have no effect to rewards and in next patch ranks will be reseted (to some degree).
: TFT set 2
Far too early to say. Patch has been in public around 9 hours now, and players, myself included, have only started to scratch the possibilities of builds. And even then I don't think the summoners itself are the problem anyway, it's Yorick.
: I think he didn't notice the red theme of the map and he thinks all that is changed is the color of the brushes/jungle plants
Indeed, I was only browsing during my short break before lecture and misunderstood the point. Apologies. If this is indeed causing issues for some players they should fix that and tone it down.
: The New Infernal Map is BS
Wont affect grand scheme of things. When they implemented plants no one seemed to bat an eye after few weeks. I don't think after initial backlash there would be too much notion for whole thing. Edit: Reading without thought in few seconds from time to time is bad habbit of mine and I'm sincerely sorry for posting this. I thought the problem was on thematic side of things rather than causing real issues for some players. You are absolutely right in downvoting this post, it was unthoughtful and undermining the problem.
: Will I get ranked rewards?
Splits only upgrade the ranked armor, give icons and emote basing on rank in the split. Apart from all those, other ranked rewards you would expect basing on previous seasons are distributed just as before, so you don't need to play even a single game. As long as you don't drop your honor level that is ;)
