: Riot is not giving you bad teammates on purpose so you don't reach challenger
Except when you have really high winrate in recent games, then it actually gives you bad teammates (players who have really low winrate in recent games) on purpose. That is how the system works, if you did not know.

"Lethality way too strong on Riven" Nah its just Riven mate. She has been broken for years now. Ppl just dont know that so they dont abuse her too much to make other ppl notice that.

: I do what someone in another recent post said. Just let them troll and report them and hope they get punished. I think Riot need to be clearer about peoples bans though, like tell us how long these trolls are being banned or what their punishment is to make the 20 mins of hell worth it. But I'd rather sit through 20 mins of hell and hope they get banned than dodge and let them get off completely. You are giving them what they want if you dodge.
Trolls never get banned, only flamers since that is easy to judge who is flamer -> chat filter...
: Many people believed that, but it never did. The report had two main functions: 1) It was a filter. By implementing a button for reports Riot isn't actually interested in they automatically pre-filtered reports for the Tribunal System. If that button would not have existed, people would have used ACTUAL reports to report bad gameplay (pretty much like they do now) and would have spammed the Tribunal System with it. Nowadays Riot has better filters, which is why this trick is not needed anymore. 2) It helped Riot to investigate matchmaking in general. For example if Riot noticed "Oh, in Silver 2 there 46% more 'unskilled reports' than anywhere else" they could use that as an indicator that they need to improve matchmaking in that area (for example by increasing maximum queue times in order to find players with more equal skill). Again, nowadays Riot has better methods for that, so they don't need this subjective feedback anymore. So yes, it had an impact on matchmaking, but it never affected the MMR of the reported player in any way. Neither in ranked nor in normals.
: It was a fake report that didn't do anything....and it was removed for a reason.
Pretty sure it actually lowered your MMR when it came to normal games. It did nothing in ranked games, true.
: Bot or Bottom?
Because "bot" has other meaning in the concept of LoL -> Ai controlled champion. If you call adc spot "bot", you could make players thing, the ADC is a bot instead of player. I know it sounds silly like who would think that right? But I am 99% sure this is exactly the reason behind calling bottom "bottom" and not "bot".
: Poeple need to learn, that reporting is for misbehaiour, not for playing badly
Funny I still remember the option for report: "unskilled". So that was for what? For reporting ppl for not being able to find a job or something?

: I'd already had a game earlier where my Top lane darius asked for jgl, and then when i didnt give him it and he lost lane to vayne he blamed me for not ganking enough ( I ganked him twice early, and every other lane too ) then him and his premade friend in mid spam pinged "?" at me all game. I could not play properly. I've had a bad day for trolls.
This kind of thing (especially with premades) happens all the time even without "can I jungle?" in pregame chat. That's just what this community is :Z so I would not see direct connection between those two things.
: No matter the value of the skins you reroll, they can always become 750 RP skins(or cheaper), even if you reroll 3 ultimate skins! The only skins you can not get from hextect crafting are limited skins like; PAX, Victories, Black Alistar etc. >I have another idea. Just gotta buy all skins there are and then you can always reroll to get the newest skin. xD This is actually what I've done :P I own 703 skins out of 723 I believe it is, the 20 skins being limited. So yea, I've used a lot of money on the game :P (No regrets though!)
You cant get Black Alistar from hextech? That's racist :Z.

: Remove autofill in low elo games ( bronze - gold)
I would not mind removing autofill altogether. Just notify players that there is short stack of players just like it notifies you now and it's up to them if they want to wait 30 minutes or if they choice willingly to queue as fill. Right now autofill means supp and lot of players (me included) just dodge the game if they are forced to play supp since they hate playing supp more than dodging the queue. Adding autofill made the queue more healthy as intended by Rito for sure {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}

: Trolls in Champ Select + "Can I have XXXX please?"
I saw ppl asking for roles a lot, never saw them go troll like this after someone refused politely tho. Must be your bad luck or something :Z.
: This is, alongside the ability to deny minions, the thing that drove me off Dota. It's super annoyingly bad design.
Annoying? Yes. Bad? Not really since its needed for the sake of champ/hero balance. Vayne, Twitch, Yasuo and others are living examples what happens when you don't have farm denying - no matter if they are 0/10, they will still dominate the enemy team when they got their items and they get their items every time since no gold loss on death. You simply cant remove gold loss while you keep late game hyper-carries in the game and expect the game to be balanced...
Zombie Leda (EUNE)
: Nerf Vayne
As long as you don't lose gold on death there will be never a reliable way how to deal with late game hyper carry (by focusing on killing them often early/mid game to make their farm trash in this case). But Rito will never introduce gold lose into the game again since the feature is really frustrating (ppl who play Dota too know :) ). Yet its necessary for the balance of champs with ridiculous late game scaling...

: Has riot ever thought about making a movie?
I dont think LoL will remain popular for 20 years like Warcraft universe to "earn" a movie. Also Warcraft movie is simple Warcraft lore put into the film, it was all there in Warcraft game single player campain (which was really well writen as you can tell from the popularity of the games itself) and it still toke like 8 years or so to make the movie from the moment of annoucment that there will be a movie. You dont really have that for LoL - LoL lore is just genericly badass background stories about champs where the champ got cursed/betrayed/toke revenge/was evil and turned good like in Naruto main story line/was evil and remained evil, nothing deep (I admit there are few champ lores which toke some creativity to make like Lee sin's one, but those are rare in LoL, especially after the shurima patch lore overhaul bullsht) or actully connected to each other except few exception like NasusXRenekton. Hard to build a movie storyline on that. Also the Warcraft movie does not make as big profit as was expected so that does not encourage other game developer companies to go for a movie either.

I do not approve or promote flaming, I am just saying it makes sense ppl do it and I am pretty sure flamers know it does not help them to win the game - they dont flame to win games, they do so to "release some steam". But you can release steam verbally without typing down insults that will only mess up the game for you teammates. Your argument is that flamers releasing steam helps them perform better. But this is a teamgame, and one person performing better on the expense of other people performing worse; it's not doing anything for the overall success of the team as a whole. I swear and let out steam, but I do so verbally; not in the chat and not directed at my teammates. If I can't keep my cool without swearing, that's my problem and it shouldn't affect the team. If the flamers want to win, they need to get with the program and learn about what helps/hinders a team during a match, and flaming is really one of the worst things to spend your time doing in the middle of a match. Even when your champ is dead, even then you can still do useful things. I tend to first buy quick, then scout the map while waiting for my character to respawn. Then I can ping and alert people about things happening, consider changing tactics, etc. So no, to me it doesn't make sense that they flame, because it only sabotages themselves and everyone else.
I didnt try to make an argument about flaming making flamers play better (or worse). I was just speculating about reason behind ppl flaming. As you said you can just verbaly swear IRL without writing in the chat - I do that too usually. But some ppl (and there is lot of different types of ppl's minds believe me) are just too concentrated on the playing the game that they write in the chat automaticly instead of just insulting their monitor even if they know it actully lowers their chance to win the game, they simply do it automaticly...

: what riot should in fact do, is look at the reasons WHY people don't want to play support and why it is so unpopular, and make some changes to it.
They did that. They made big buff to supp items. Then lot of bad players went crying on forum that they got killed 1v1 as 0/4/0 Vayne by enemy 5/0/1 Leona (which made perfect sense to me that fed supp killed underfarmed ADC 1v1, like why the hell not..). Btw I am not making it up - it was so ridiculous to me that I still remember it clearly even tho it was in the summer 2 years ago (or maybe even 3 years ago, I am sure it was in August :) ). After that supp role was incredibly popular since ppl could actully carry games with supps like Leona. But since ADC mains cried a lot Riot nerfed supps back to be ward b**ches only and never tried to bring them on the pair with other roles when it comes to power ever again. I guess for someone who only played LoL and never played Dota it seems right and normal that supps are weak. Like "no farm -> no power" logic. Its just me who found the buffed supps patch the best patch ever since I am used to the fact that supp means the strongest role when nobody has items and carry means the strongest role when everybody has full build. And not that supp means the weakest member of the team like it is in LoL and probably always will be :Z. No need to say that nobody wants to play role which is supossed to be and desinged as the weakest role power-wise therefore lack of supp players in player base.
: Why flaming your team doesent help you? A friendly guide from guy who's english isn't his national.
Yeah it does not help you winning the game but it can make you feel a little better. Before you thumb me down just think about it. When you do something IRL like repairing something or so and it does not go well lot of ppl just swear even tho they know it will not help them repair it but it makes them feel a little better - they would not do that otherwise. I do not approve or promote flaming, I am just saying it makes sense ppl do it and I am pretty sure flamers know it does not help them to win the game - they dont flame to win games, they do so to "release some steam".
: has riot done any conclusive research into what drives a player to toxicity?
Lot of ppl are jerks, but they hide it when they are outside (in school, job, etc.) since being polite IRL brings lot of benefits (for example you keep your teeth in your mouth ;) ). When they are playing game like LoL - hidden in the internet anonimity, they can be truly themselves, so they act like jerks -> aka they are being toxic. And since ppl are used to other ppl being polite to them they kind of get upset real quick when toxic ppl flame them so they often start to flame them back and become toxic themselves. It is simple as that really, it is not rocket science. Also the game desing does not help either - you get killed few times early on and you already know that it will be another 20+ minutes of pretty frustrating time and that will not raise your spirit a bit -> therefore someone goes into "I dont give a sht anymore" mode and pretty much feed the rest of the game even tho they dont really feed on purpose per say, but a feed is a feed and that makes the teammates upset/toxic too. And ofc there are some ppl who just like to make other ppl upset and find it funny (usually premade kids of 10-16 y/o imho) and they just feed on purpose and bait flaming from teammates because nothing is more funny than making a random stranger get banned for flaming right?

: As mentioned above first case is probably intended though I'm not a developer and I haven't seen any info about it so I can't say for sure that's why I pointed it out. (if it's itended then it's very uncomfortable way how to interact inside the kit). It works the same way as Viktor's vector cast but I still think that for a combo champion (especially in this case when combo relies on being quick) it's a flaw that pretty much ruins it. As mentioned Salty Princess in a similar fashion. The second case, I repeatedly did it today without any problems, if someone from riot will need it I can try to make a short video to display such behaviour. And as I mentioned above as well, I was testing it in a calm environment today to be sure I don't double press any buttons or press it wrongly, everything was conducted in an orderly manner to be sure that I'm not part of the problem. Hopefully this concludes it. :-) Have a nice day. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}

Nidalee rework? Are we talking about season 2 or something? You cant really compare season 2 with current one. Back then there was one OP champ - Kassadin. Now you have like 10-15. So you cant ban them all which means you pick them or you lose since enemy pick them first.

"Cast first part of W (that just shows an arrow on the ground before realeasing W) then cast E, it cancels W" thats exactly how it should behave. "Cast entire W and immediately after that E, if you do it fast enough before the W animation on the ground appears (but taliyah is alredy starting her W animation on her model) that only her E is cast and her entire W gets cancelled" Never happend to me when I did the W -> E combo but that could be a bug if it puts W on CD. If not then I would blame "fat fingers" when you kind of press E before you release W (asuming you use smart casting) tbh - no offence.

I did not know it ... As far as i know LoL works like this - "Try our game! If you like it support us by buying some skins! Yeah and if you dont want to you still get something which is behind paywall FOR FREE!" This is how LoL works. This is how Overwatch works - "Hello! Buy our game just for 60 Bucks and you get ... sorta thing for free! But these are completely Random most of time just sprays! Some time even duplicates! Also since level 20 your rewards will degrade drasticaly! But dont worry we got you cowered we have overpriced chest shop! With random loot every time so no chance for the thing you want! Enjoy!" This is why i say NOPE!
"...60 Bucks...." Since when 40 Euros = 60 Bucks? Did USA declare war on China when I was not looking or something? Tbh if there was not for the fking random FPS drops bug (makes me rage so much...) it would be the best 40 Euros I have ever spent on PC games.

Playing LoL (or any game) while you dont have fun doing so is really stupid way how to waste your time as I said before. I'm not saying I don't have fun playing rankeds but I don't get the thrill of a real and serious match when playing normals. You have to think about it in a different way, like playing soccer in team or on the nearby field with a couple friends. No one ever said rankeds shouldn't be fun, rankeds however are only 'fun' when both teams try to compete on EQUAL terms. Which is not the case atm. It's like playing a soccer game where one team is handicapped, eg is playing with 9 man due to players being absent. At this point the soccer match they are playing is no longer fun but a stressful game that you only play to keep your pride up and try to hold the score on 0. I hope you understand what I mean with this. There's no way I don't have fun in rankeds it's just that it's stressful when you are matched on definite unequalness and unfairness. That's not how you have 'fun' in my dictionary.
"No one ever said rankeds shouldn't be fun" I tho you said that, not directly but still -> "I thought Normal Drafts were for fun" from your previous post and even before that in sense as its pointless to play rankeds - again me asuming that there have to be something more than fun from playing rankeds in your opinion. As long as you agree that ppl are supossed to have fun in rankeds then I agree with you and I am sorry for the misunderstandings. I also agree that matchmaking is really a mess right now for rankeds (I really hope Rito got the more RP sales from the DQ change as they planned since the price for that was pretty high - dead matchmaking system...) and I dont enjoy games with unbalanced teams (no matter if my team is the stompers or the stomped, still boring/frustrating experience) - thats why I dont play LoL much these days.

Point of every mode of every PC game (or game/sport in general) is to have fun. Unless you are a proplayer (prosportman) and you get paid for it. The fact some ppl are having more fun playing rankeds and some playing normals does not change the fact that the point is to have fun.

: Are you having your preferred lane more often since DynQ ?
Since you get to pick lobby as the role you chosed then yes, i have pref lane more often obviously. Do i wait 10 times longer in que? As mid mainer - again yes. But I dont mind longer que. But the point is new que role preselect =/= DynQ - DynQ just simple uses the new que role preselect (just as the SoloQ could use new que role preselect which would have pleased a lot of players, but that ship already left so...). No credits for new role select goes to DynQ and making a poll which present the DynQ and new role select as the same thing makes no sense... No offence :).

: I'd say it does generate profit. Maybe not a lot, but over time it will. Such maps draw a lot of attention.
Not as much as you would think. Also the tryharders dont really like map skins since it is a distraction and they are simply not used to is so it hurts their concentration. As for casuals they may like it but after like 3-4 games played they stop noticing that there is a change at all and making a new map textures so ppl can admire it for 4 games while you dont get any direct money back from is just not worth it.
: doesn't seem to take a lot of effort and time to create a white summoner's rift tho
You have to create new textures for the whole map - maybe not a lot compare to other things you can do with the game but still some effort for no profit. I mean in Dota 2 you can actully change the map looking as you please but the "map skins" are not for free, so it makes sense for Valve to create them. In LoL its just changing the map during the time of the year for free so no profit there.

If ppl cant just stop playing and wait for key drop reset (when their only goal by playing is to get keys and not something like having fun playing, which is pretty sad tbh) or buy it for RP then its their own fault - Rito is hardly responsible for that and is not supossed to adjust the key drop desing to try to fix it. Riot isn't responsible but they can still care about it, hence why the weekly limit on chests. You can't just pretend that "Riot isn't responsible" and therefore aren't meant to do anything about players' lack of selfcontrol. Why is there a mute button and chat filter ? In your logic, you would argue that it's up to the players to keep selfcontrol against flamers, and thus there is no reason to implement a Mute button.
Mute button is there to make ppl less angry - angry ppl more likely stop playing and therefore stop buying RP -> mute button is good for Rito's money income. Making ppl play the game less by making limit on key drops is bad for Rito -> ppl who play more are less likely going to quit which means more money income for Rito's which means no limit for key drops. Dont make any mistake in thinking Rito cares about their players, they dont. They care about money income and its COMPLETLY OK - its the purpose of the company -> making money. The fact that making more money and making players happier are often cause by the same things does not mean Rito directly cares about players happiness - ofc they will tell you they care when you ask them, but they dont care really. Ultimately if they have ways to make players into RP buying brainless machines with no real life which is clearly really bad for the players themselves but would make the most money for Rito they would not hesitate a second to use those ways :). Todays game companies dont really try to make the most fun to play game, they go for the most addictive game (those two things are not the same btw). Therefore the changes in LoL - forcing ppl to play in premades (you could clearly see how they directly care about players happiness there when it came to bye-bye-SoloQ), implementing hazard aka hextech crafting, unlockable game content (heroes, runes, skins) which makes the illusion of great lost if you stop playing (the biggest reason why WoW still have so many active players btw). The sooner you realize this the sooner you will understand why Rito makes changes they make and why they dont make changes you consider as good ones.

: You could've stopped after your first question before elaborating deeper into wrong judgments/assumptions, you're mistaken. This subject has nothing to do with "trying to win" to get keys, the matter is the mindset of "working for keys". I'm not affected personally in any ways, i'm just pointing out an ethical problem.
Lack of selfcontrol of the players is not the fault of the game desing (the game desing can only be made to exploit this but its still not the source of it). If ppl cant just stop playing and wait for key drop reset (when their only goal by playing is to get keys and not something like having fun playing, which is pretty sad tbh) or buy it for RP then its their own fault - Rito is hardly responsible for that and is not supossed to adjust the key drop desing to try to fix it.

: The curve drop rate on key fragments is unhealthy, it should be limited (like Chests)
Why exactly are you complaining? To get key drop you have to win. Means when your teammates want the key drop, they are trying to win harder. So basicly you are complaining about your teammates trying harder to win games. I know LoL players complain about lot of things but this is ridiculous...
: Supports that don't buy Sightstone
I rather have supp who does not buy SStone than supp who does not buy pink wards. If he buys both then awesome, but lets be real here, no supp buys both...
: And they do... but bots aren't exactly high on the priority, actual people come first (which would you prefer riot invest in, better bots or better servers... I would hope that's a no brainer). And also remember riot have updated the bots before, that project led to the current bots and doom bots. So riot are willing to do so but players come first (as it should be).
You are talking like Rito invests to the server upgrades, which they dont. The only thing they invest into is actully new champ skins since its the only thing which will make a profit in their opinion - even the few mage champs rework toke them like 6 months to finish - feels like they are paying one guy to do reworks really, but have the whole team of skin desingers. And yes, they have enough money. They actully make shtload of money from LoL... Also that bot update was about giving the shtty AI to more champs so you didnt meet Annie, Ashe, Ryze and the 2 others every single game. There was hardly any quality update, just the quantity of champs with "AI". I still do agree with you about that the priority should be servers before bots in any circumstances, but I dont think Rito gives a damn about servers really. Unless its literally on fire Rito is ok with it.
