: [Valentine's Day] Community Contest [Closed]
Here it is, I dont usually do pixel art since im not used to it, but i really like this ship, so i decided to draw it anyway. http://fav.me/dazdhvw For some time i thought the contest was closed since the comments were disabled but im glad its back up. As for the ship itself, Deux ex Machina comic perfectly explains it. I dont think i can put into words how perfect those two seem to fit together. PS: Doesnt seem to display it properly here, so probably best to just follow the original link to deviant art.

: Here is what I've written to them: "Can you please bring back Normal Draft Pick? A lot of people on the forums are waiting for that after its removal and I would also like it to be back, because it was the main gamemode that people played and where you could actually enjoy the game. Let's analyze what is left. Blind pick for the most people is just a place where the most toxic and unsportsmanlike players usually like to play, because there are no strict rules, no positions or roles are premade in the queueing phase, so the main act of decision is when everybody types in chat what role they would like to pick. Sometimes more than one people want to choose the role and this is when the argument starts. People will just simply leave if they don't have their role most of the time or just go intentionally feeding, trolling, will insult their teammates or be AFK all game. And what if you have poor connection and the person, who entered lobby before you, already took the role you wanted? Than it is just the matter of reaction? The fastest gets what he wants? Let's sum it up now. We have two queues: one where people are toxic, always flame and without any helpful rules or limitations (not to mention the possibility of Mirror picks and that most of the people playing it are low skilled players, which then brings it to the point of who is having more non-newbie teammates will win) and we have another queue, which is Ranked and which often requires great contribution and concentration and often takes away much of your energy, which shows that it is not meant for the anytime fun and relaxing experience. I get that we may not have enough playerbase to maintain Normal Draft queue's proper work but wouldn't it be better to remove the Normal Blind pick queue and bring back Normal Draft instead, change the rules a bit so all the players could play it and encourage them to do so. That would improve their total skill and knowledge of the game and lower the numbers of negatively determined people. A lot of people are leaving the game now because of the decision that you had made. Until the new changes about this topic there is no advance in the game, no middleground for the players to stand on".
I agree with what you posted, and i really hope that Riot starts paying more attention to their playerbase. It would be about time.

: Mate, I was thinking about this also :) Duck Blind Pick! Bring back Normal Draft!

I wouldnt mind if the Blind stayed. As long as i have my beloved Normal draft back. xD But if they really want to remove a queue, then definitely blind - there are plenty of solutions on how to make draft available to every player.

: > There is a reason why people dont like this change, and _IF_ you dont support the player base wanting to remove the blind pick and bring back draft, that&#x27;s fine by me. But dont go arguing for the normal draft to not return at ALL. At least **OFFER a SOLUTION** for the both queues to remain there, or a new queue that could replace both, like blind draft or something. Provide an actual solution like the OP did, which i think is a good solution, since you will be left with at least some champs to choose from if you already have that small of a champion pool and others get banned or picked. It would be good if Riot gave a free bundle of champions (for example all those that are 450lp, like annie and such) to the new accounts so they can have a champion pool ready for draft. *cough* hypocrite *cough* I mean, you literally want to remove blind pick and I want it to stay, and that makes me bad? For literally doing the same thing you did except I'm on the other side. You also told me to list my arguments, would you mind doing that yourself since all I'm seeing opinions not arguments. Not only that you also said that I shouldn't hide behind statistics that don't exists yet again you're doing the same thing? My arguments -Draft pick is smaller and so we shouldn't listen to the minority. (even if they're vocal.) Now you could make the argument that there are a lot of people who haven't tried draft pick yet, but that again is a statistic that we don't have enough data so it would be doing the exact same thing that you called me out for, which would make it invalid wouldn't it? Sincerely yours, SuchHookMuchWow
> cough hypocrite cough I mean, you literally want to remove blind pick and I want it to stay, and that makes me bad? For literally doing the same thing you did except I'm on the other side. You also told me to list my arguments, would you mind doing that yourself since all I'm seeing opinions not arguments. Not only that you also said that I shouldn't hide behind statistics that don't exists yet again you're doing the same thing? I never said i want blind pick actually removed for good, it was there as an option, despite it being... much more flawed then the rest (in my honest opinion), but it could be fun if you are a full 5 premade and knew no one in your team will troll. BUT, if i HAD TO CHOOSE to keep only one of these (since riot wants to remove one so badly), i would choose draft. The server was just fine with both. I didnt mind waiting for 5 min for the game, as long as i got my desired role. And i wouldnt mind if blind pick stayed. But i dont see you arguing to have the normal draft brought back AND keep the blind. I already explained why i played blind, which is probably similar to many, if not most of the blind pick player base (I cant prove this, but neither can you, however, lets assume this is the most logical explonation there is ~ Ze Ruler decided! ~). > This idea doesn't make sense. You literally assume that people will enjoy draft pick even thought it has a smaller community built around it. You're the minority we shouldn't make decisions based on what the minority likes we should make decisions on what the majority wants. You're just looking at it too subjectively, you're trying to get the possible outcome for you instead of getting the best outcome for everyone. Your original comment was way too subjective, and offered nothing in return. First, _how_ do you **know** what the majority wants?! I dont see people arguing for the draft pick to be removed, making forum posts "PLEASE DONT BRING BACK DRAFT", or "WE HATE DRAFT, LEAVE IT REMOVED" and so on. And just because we want draft back doesnt neccesserally mean we want Blind gone. We just want the things to be back like before regarding these changes. How is this bad? You have blind pick. We want to have draft. Why cant there be both like so far? Who cares if you have to wait for 5 min to get a role, if you want it that bad, you should be able to wait a bit. And if you cant, go to blind and play there. THat means keeping both queues. I had to make sure you understand this, so I repeated my point again. >Draft pick is smaller and so we shouldn't listen to the minority. (even if they're vocal.) Now you could make the argument that there are a lot of people who haven't tried draft pick yet, but that again is a statistic that we don't have enough data so it would be doing the exact same thing that you called me out for, which would make it invalid wouldn't it? Obviously, that minority may not be as small as they'll have you think. And even if it is, i already made my point across as did so many people who've replied to your and this thread in general. I dont plan to answer any more since im sure others already provided enough information and arguments and researched this way more than either of us. There will be plenty of people you can argue with, and do give it some thought. Why cant everyone be happy? ^^ {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}} Sincerely, the self appointed queen and ruler of the world, Eggroll

: We could add a 4th group which is players who haven't played blind pick for whatever reason, which would make the draft pick group inflated, see how it goes both ways. I'd say that your argument is invalid due to it making a huge assumption without any real data.
The only reason I ever played normal blind pick is when i was leveling up my account. And the only reason i kept playing it after a while was because i was too scared to try out draft, it seemed too close to ranked when it came to seriousness of the game. Every player tries out blind pick first since you first have to have a champion pool for draft and a certain level, unlike blind pick. So i doubt that a player who didn't try out blind pick exists. I know a lot of players who are the same, in a sense that they got stuck with blind pick only because of their comfort zone, and they were scared to try out something new because they might get flamed at because of their inexperience. However, once they did try it out, (there was/is an obvious difference in behavior and normal DRAFT is way less toxic), it resulted in them almost never again ever glancing at the blind pick. I dont know if any of them will miss blind pick, but i know i certainly wont. Trying to get your role, and if your connection is any slower being stuck with support or any other unwanted role only because you couldnt call out your role as fast as others, or getting your role picked by someone else anyway since they instalocked, or simply having a katarina support and soraka jungle for no damn reason besides trolling. Who wants that?! I rarely had any good memories from that queue, so it baffles me to see people fighting so much for the draft not be brought back. ~~Maybe you just want the rest of us to suffer too.~~ There is a reason why people dont like this change, and _IF_ you dont support the player base wanting to remove the blind pick and bring back draft, that's fine by me. But dont go arguing for the normal draft to not return at ALL. At least **OFFER a SOLUTION** for the both queues to remain there, or a new queue that could replace both, like blind draft or something. Provide an actual solution like the OP did, which i think is a good solution, since you will be left with at least some champs to choose from if you already have that small of a champion pool and others get banned or picked. It would be good if Riot gave a free bundle of champions (for example all those that are 450lp, like annie and such) to the new accounts so they can have a champion pool ready for draft. But thats only impossible since that would require them to actually give us something for free. Which is soooo hard for them even though it might fix the entire problem. Anyway, if you actually want to help the player base, stop looking and the blind pick through pink glasses and actually ask yourself, what could be done here to fix this. Even if the solution is for the blind pick to stay, actually make a list of your arguments, not just hide behind one statistic that doesnt even tell the whole story and doesnt explain why are so many people displeased with this situation.

: It's a fact that most of the normal games are played in blind pick. Most of the people prefer blind pick so draft pick isn't coming back. Cry and bitch all you want about it, Blind pick > draft pick.
Why is every single person (not that many of them, but they do show up), that is for the blind pick to stay the same and not be removed, so toxic. You are legit showing us how it feels to be in the champ select in that mod. You'd probably instalock into a champ, and spam your role, even if you werent the first one to declare it, right now in this comment section if you saw the options for it. Riot, this is the sort of people who want blind pick. The problem with draft normal can be fixed easily if you only read the suggestions from playerbase who is coming up with PLENTY of solutions that could work, just so they can play the game without stress that comes along with the blind queue. And do **talk** about it! Seeing barely any response to us who are obviously shaken by this decision is just making it worse.
: That's why you play jungle to get it ;P
Of all the roles, that is the one i dont like playing. xD
: Slaying the drake to get its head as an icon. Because it'd be a unique thing.
You have to contest your own teammates, to make sure you give it the final blow. xD If the jungler doesnt smite it before u have a chance.

: enemies are missing.
The only way i would change it, is the sound effect, to make it more obvious, since its being ignored. You literally have to spam it for someone to notice it, and not tell you later "OMG MID WHY NO SS". Personally, not many people use it as a "why" in my games.

: This is awesome. You are really talented. Good luck in your money gathering mission.
Thanks, no luck yet, but hopefully, there might be some soon. ^^
: Its a really cute take on Morgana and I love all things cute/chibi. This made my day as I heard some news that is somewhat bad. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
I am glad it made your day better. I hope what ever news you received is gonna get better soon. O.O

Its an interesting concept. I have a feeling her passive might be a bit too rough. Especially in the laning phase. You'd be focused too much, if you try to use your passive at that moment, unless its under the safety of the turret. But it still sounds pretty awesome and unique. Both the champion and the whole concept u came up with. At least to me. ^^
: That's nice fan art! For me it's amazing how people are talented. Digital drawing is ,IMO, kind of black sorcery... The black sorcery of Fallen Angel {{champion:25}}
Hahah, thats quite a way to compare it. Im glad you like it. ^^

: He looks so sci-fi but...idk maybe could be a nice inspiration source.
Of course, i didnt mean this to be original splash art or anything, but having a similarly created champ would be nice. ^^
: He looks so cool what if he could be like a machine maybe? Maybe like a robot created in Zaun and then something happened with Freljord and they turned it so it would obey them instead? Idk the lore that well so Idk if they would have conflict or something
Hmm, the idea to create him as a robot sounds cool. Actually it would be cute, since he would make the robot trio... Blitzy, Orianna and him.
