: For everyone thinking that It is not big deal, Imagine the teams that play against them - how they feel ? Probably confused and upset or even disappointed... What would you think as a Challenger playing competitively expecting to play against someone that you will have fun instead of just playing 15-20 minutes of games against all "female" team and not providing even excitement forget about challenge... Isn't the purpose of eSports to showcase those who are good? If this so called "female" team made up by golds and plats can exist why can't I make an official team with me being gold alongside with a friend and 2-3 silver and bronzes...
You can, just buy a spot in the LCL.

What's your elo at? 1-5 mins queue time doesn't sound that high. I am currently ranked Bronze I and I pretty much always get my primary role so I queue up for mid/adc or adc/mid depending on what role I want to play because I'd almost never get the secondary one if I didn't change it manually.

: I would rather like it if champion select first showed the champions i want, specifically the one i wanna ban and those i would want to pick. I don't need all of them and finding them each time is a bit of a chore.
Yeah that's exactly what I'm demanding. I don't want to google for my champions, I want them to be automatically sorted by mastery during pick intent and pick phases so I have the ones I want to play at the top of the list - and then I'd select the ones I typically ban as favorites and see them at the top of the list during the ban phase. Instead it's sorted alphabetically by default and jumps back to that at the beginning of each phase every single time :/

: I think that Hai should be part of live balancing team not Jatt lol. He undertstand macro gameplay very well but he is not expirienced player overall. he played few amumu games professionaly and thats it. This game is one big mess i can imagine how bad is working for riot games in thier office, sitting there all day doing nothing and they cant get fired cuz whole reddit would scream like rats. There is a ton of people in big companies that the biggest thing for them is get up in the morning and show themself on working place one of them is riot games. As long as riot hire people like that game will be doomed.
I have to disagree. Jatt is still playing the game on a SoloQueue basis (he's like Diamond I level). He's a stats nerd, he's quite intelligent from what it seems and he has the macro level understanding. Imho he's very well suited to do balancing. I'd argue he's the most at the game skilled person on that team right now, the other people working there are likely not ex-pros or even high Diamond players, so even from your point of argument Jatt would be the best person to ever work there xD I don't know much about the work they're doing but I'd imagine it's a little more than just show up to work and randomly tweak some numbers for every patch. They have to first theorize, then evaluate PBE tests, evaluate SoloQueue and professional play etc. Whether or not they're doing a good job at that is up to subjective view but simply saying they do nothing at all without any evidence to it is a bit overthrown I think.

: Everyone can be smart to comment after the game.
I'm not saying I'm the better analyst or whatever, I'm clearly not. I'm also not one of those delusional NA fans who gave the analysts a lot of flak for predicting Afreeca to win against C9 - it was quite reasonable to do so, Afreeca is a Korean team after all and they finished 1st in their group, why would you predict Cloud 9? I was thinking what I have written in the exact moment of their predictions before seeing the game, not that crazy to trust me on this... didn't watch the match live anyway, had to attend a minor championship myself on Saturday so I couldn't comment before the game even if I wanted to. I was even rooting for G2 after that impressive RNG match but just because I like PerkZ and Jankos I don't go all out and say yeah he's gonna smash RooKie so hard easy win for G2. Because it's not.

I second this. I really like to watch the World Championship but I can't watch 16 hours of quarter finals in one go tbh, it gets exhausting. I needed 4 days to watch that, can only do one series a day. Not to speak of that ridiculous new groups format with zero breaks, impossible to stay even to live, I didn't even manage that in the old format (in fact 2018 is the first year since 2013 where I skipped some games entirely). But I also (used to) like the game very much so in past years I was always a little heartbroken when I literally couldn't play the game during the World Championship. I'm not playing that much anymore so it's not that big of a deal anymore but seeing PerkZ go off on LeBlanc got me thinking hey I wanna play some LeBlanc now for example, well I can't do that before I watch the remaining two quarterfinals, too bad...

It is not possible to turn off the filter on the boards. The vast majority of censored words would result in at least a warning by a moderator anyway so be thankful for this protection. Btw this has nothing to do with age. A 5 year old kid from a family that regularly uses swear words will not perceive them as swear words - and someone in their mid 20s like myself who has never really lived in an environment with swear word use will still dislike them even if they know the average 16yo LoL player doesn't mean it in the same offensive way you learned this word.

RogueDek (EUW)
: I'm sorry, WHAT? If the insult isn't directed towards anyone in the game, it shouldn't be reportable. With some exeptions of course. French/polish players who can't use private mensages, for example, if they say a bad word, it should be reportable. How many times did a french guy on the enemy team call my mom a whore? Too many times. Also since as you said, "Whole conversations are really annoying.". Muting is an option, but having to cut out comms with premades since they refuse to communicate puts you behind and hence means they're throwing the game, so any kind of non-english, non-game related chatter in game (unless you got 5 premades) should be allowed, since it will affect the game. So, to keep it simple, ban everything that: 1) Isn't in English (for NA/EUW/EUNE servers, main language for other servers, 2) Swearwords/Insults, and 3) Anything that isn't related to the game. Which isn't an option. As Dunkey said in his "I'm done with League" video, calling the enemy team "%%%%%%s" is the funniest thing in the whole game. The game will litterally cease to exist if they keep censoring it like this. "Reforming" isn't viable since one slip-up and you're back to the startline, being friendly doesn't bring any rewards at all, apart from those sh1tty honor capsules and borders, which are as worth to me as litteral trash would be. I'm a friendly guy, and I've reformed since I got banned 8-9 months ago, and I'm still honor level 1. I litterally only want to play clash, and I can't. Why in the f*ck would you need to be "friendly" in order to play clash?!? It's not even a soloQ gamemode, it's a 5-man premade gamemode. And they can't say it's a "Anti-Smurf measure" because any new account that is ranked can play it. TL;DR League has more censoring than most dictatorships, but it doesn't care about balanced metas, fair mm, and fun in general. League is litterally on the verge of crumbling into pieces, because it doesn't know how to make the old players stay, and it's just gonna become this come-and-go game since there are no actual rewards for being good and working hard into the game, besides getting some "shiny skins and borders" that everyone's gonna forget about in 2 weeks, which you won't even get if you slip-up ONE GAME.
1) Insults directed at anyone outside of the game are still insults. The community does not want to see any racist, sexist, homophobic, life-threatening etc behavior whether it be directed at themselves or anyone else so if you insult your girlfriend's sister or my toplaner I don't care, I won't see either and neither will Riot. If you don't comply with that get banned or stop playing. 2) Why are you even saying french/polish people using a bad word should be reportable? Of course it should. But it contradicts with your statement English insults against non-teammates should not be reportable. 3) Yes, I agree non game related chatter (no matter in which language) should be confined to a minimum. If Riot's algorithms are capable of detecting stuff like that I'd love to see some system implemented for that - though I believe it to be very difficult to differ game related from non game related chatter via an algorithm so it might not be possible. The technology isn't there yet meme. 4) I also agree English should be the language spoken but sometimes it's easier for people who aren't good at English to say something in their native language, maybe not everyone needs to understand what they say. A mid/jungle premade could very well communicate in French or whatever. The English language is simply the Gentlemen's Agreement. 5) Calling the enemy team %s is certainly not the funniest thing in the game. Everyone who thinks that I despise as a person. There is something like winning with dignity, respecting your opponent, fair sportsmanship. If you need to insult your opponent in order to have fun that's really really sad. 6) You need to be friendly to play Clash because it gives you another incentive to be friendly. Enough reason given. 7) Not even gonna comment on the dictatorship comparison. 8) League is on the verge of crumbling into pieces since 2014. The world has also ended in 2012 according to the Mayan. Still nothing happened.

I play fairly decent just to let you know. You wasn't in the game where I usually go 70+ farm ahead at 13 minutes. Games are lose due to bad decision making.
Well, decision making is part of the game and when you as the fokal point of your team throw the match by inting to a Viktor leaving the rest of your team 4v5 behind when you had the majority of your team's gold... I'm not flaming you or anything, you had a loss streak so what? Happens to the best. Your MMR dropped accordingly. No need to blame the system for that, it was your bad decision making that lost you these games. Now that you have fixed that problem you climb back up.

I dont really understand your logic. When premades people from poland or france that they use their own language spamming nothing happens. Just mute me if I am not cooperating with you or not saying something usefull. Simple as that. Never insulted somebody on that game so do what Riot says. Mute people. Because he is right. The Chat is there for the **entire** team to communicate, not for your premade and you to "social talk". Use \msg and \r if you and your premade want to badmouth someone in your social circle, don't bring it in the team chat as noone is obligated to see you spamming the Chat.
Yeah exactly. I don't mind if premades change out 2-3 lines to each other in the public chat but whole conversations are really annoying. Also the reason nothing happens when premades are chatting in polish is that I don't understand a single word so I'll just mute them and nothing else. But if I see people chatting in English or another language I understand and I see something offensive in there that's a reason to report them and grant them a well-deserved chat restriction. The rules still apply to private conversations if they are publicly visible.

Heavily depends on the current meta and on my recent games. Recently I have banned Illaoi and Warwick. Because Illaoi is somehow just OP and Warwick ult is so damn annoying. I don't ban for my lane because I can play into everything, I'm more concerned for my team. Sure, there are champions I don't like to get countered with but I can't ban everything anyway so I'd rather ban the general most OP stuff. I really hate something like Malphite too but it gets picked so rarely that it isn't worth a ban.

It doesn't happen that way though, because they're not trying to have a civilized conversation, they're trying to troll you, and they're always successful because once you're matched with them, they simply ruin the game no matter what unless you can win a 4v5 against 15-2 fed champs. And surrendering is impossible cause they're usually 2+ premade. And leaving is impossible because dodging trolls has a more severe punishment than being a troll, and even if the punishment was the same, they just make a new account, cause they only play to troll, so their level and champs don't matter, meanwhile the other guy who just wanted to not have his day ruined by a troll either has to waste 40 minutes of his life with a toxic asshole, or risk getting banned or queue timer fine just for avoiding them. The system is toxic and promotes trolling, because there is no way to avoid them without being punished besides muting them, and muting them doesn't even stop them trolling, it literally just stops them talking, so it literally accomplishes nothing towards solving the issue, it's a just a way to try and hide from it. If the issue isn't fixed, league will remain the most toxic game on the market, and people will gradually quit as they're tired of all the shit. Because of Riots seemingly lack of giving a shit towards this issue, they have lost over £4000 from me alone from s3-s8. I doubt I'm the only person. This issue is directly hurting Riots profits and creating toxicity. It's irrational to leave it undiscussed and not addressing it.
You're talking of 2+ premades so I guess you mean normal games? I admit, I don't play normal games (well I did in 2012 but that's a long time ago), I only play ranked so I can't say much about it... but from the few normals I still play to try out new champions it seems like it's just a really relaxed setting like nobody cares what you play, just have fun with Pantheon/Maokai botlane or whatever, I have played AD LeBlanc in a normal game and nobody said a word^^ If you want a more serious game, try out normal draft mode instead of blind pick. I have very rarely tried out this mode in 2013 before I went from normals to ranked so I can't really tell but I imagine it's a mix of blind pick and ranked, people take it more serious than blind pick but they don't want to kill your relatives yet if you fail a gank like in ranked. Or play SoloQueue - there are very few trolls. I mean, there are really bad players who go 0-7 in 12 minutes etc but generally almost everyone there plays to win so they're at least trying. Things like Disco Nunu or supports just stealing cs all the time or people following you around in the jungle are actually very very rare in ranked. But the flaming gets harder in SoloQueue. Normal games are sooo relaxed, nobody cares when you die or don't gank^^ in ranked you have to be able to ignore or mute the toxic people, otherwise you're doomed xD On the other hand you won't see an AD LeBlanc vs Pantheon/Maokai botlane in ranked^^
: Why would he ruin games? Hes p1 close to diamond promos. Stop projecting onto others. Imagine how many bronze silver gold plat games he would have to ruin if your idea was in place.
How many new players really do have plat level when they start playing? With 9-1 I'd put you in Silver I then you can quickly rush through to Gold and higher, you don't have to ruin Bronze games for that. If I go 9-1 I'll still be Silver too because I get a soft reset from last season and I was Silver then. Why would a totally new player be placed higher?

They take the results from Worlds and MSI from the last 2 years and weigh the regions accordingly. 1. Korea (World Champion S6, S7, MSI Champion S6, S7) 2. China (World SF S6, S7, MSI SF S6, S7) 3. Europe (World SF S6, QF S7, MSI 2nd S7) 4. North America (World QF S6, S7, MSI 2nd S6) 5. Taiwan (MSI SF S6, S7) 6. Vietnam So Flash Wolves from Taiwan is only the number 5 team. Both taiwanese teams failed in Worlds groups in S6 and S7. Winners of the Play-In stage (Gambit and SuperMassive) get to play against Taiwan and Vietnam, the number 5 and 6 region according to this system. Flash Wolves going 6-0 was a massive surprise to everyone, especially because they lost their star jungler Karsa (he went to RNG from China).

I didn't read all of that because it's a really long wall of text BUT even if you are unable to ignore and mute someone who is attacking you, you can defend yourself while still staying nice I'll take your example: Person A: If you stay under your turret and farm when you're low on health maybe he won't be able to kill you Person B: Maybe if you follow Zed then we wouldn't die Person A: Well I can't follow him because he has lane priority, I'd give up two waves in order to follow him Person B: So you saying your cs is worth more than Zed going 4-0 or what Person A: I'm saying you need to avoid getting killed. I pinged that he's coming bot so back away then he can't kill you Person B: Dude he's just diving us under turret he's super fed we can't do anything Person A: Then back away from your tower, retreat to inner turret, don't die repeatedly if u know that Person B: Yeah then I'm giving up two waves of cs and enemy botlane takes tower for free so that u can farm gg Person A: we can't 3v3 him anyway, doesn't make sense if I roam down Person B: Well 3v3 is better than 2v3 is it not? Person A: Triple for Zed instead of double? I think no Person B: You could at least try man Person A: You could just get a stopwatch when he ults you Person B: A new one every time he comes? Sure... Person A: Don't we have a jungler or something? Person B: Yeah right, wtf is that Lee doing? Lee: I'm camping toplane Darius: Yeah I'm 5-0 up already, dw I carry this As you can see, it's a totally civil conversation with zero flame or anything. Sure, it's totally pointless to type novels during a game because every word you type are seconds you are not moving your champion and playing the game but yeah, you can defend yourself without flaming. And even if one person starts to get really offensive and calls you % and & and / and whatever, just don't insult him back and nobody can punish you. Just stay polite and stay constructive, don't flame back. The best way is still to just ignore the other guy. The mute function is a really powerful tool.
: I played 5-5 got placed in silver 3, if it were your way id be b3. Im plat now, imagine how many bronze and silver games i would ruin climbing from b3. My friend went 9-1 and got placed in platinum 5.
Imagine how many plat and gold games your friend will ruin now because he had a little luck in placements... I went 7-3 in placements this season and got placed in Bronze I. I was Silver in Season 7. Had to ruin some Bronze games to get back to Silver. I guess with the soft reset you can't get Platinum even if you go 10-0, lol. And yeah, I think a totally new player should get placed lower when in doubt because he's more likely to be bad than good. Never played ranked in your life before, go 5-5 and instantly Silver III? You could be a total noob!

Because I earned it. I have a good solid 50% winrate every year since 2014. I did not earn it in 2013, I went 2W 8L in placements and deservedly got placed into Bronze IV. I ended the season with a positive winrate like 55% or whatever, I don't remember, and I reached Silver just after the end of season (bad timing xd). Since then I have always been Silver, always played Silver level. Why does someone who plays ranked for the first time in his life and sucks in his placements like he does 2 cs/min and has 0.7 KDA every game and goes 1-9 or 2-8 because his team can't carry him, have Silver MMR? That guy belongs in Bronze IV or V like I did back in 2013. Like come on if I get lucky in placements and go 9-1 do I get instantly placed in Platinum or what? That can't be right.

xD "Xayah": Eefje "Sjokz" Depoortere, EU LCS Host and Moderator "Rakan": Trevor "Quickshot" Henry, EU LCS play-by-play caster These two are arguably the most famous figures in European League of Legends. Well, maybe Rekkles and Deficio are more famous. It's just a joke by Riot, I think it's funny. A little fan service to LCS fans you could say. When you had your laugh and it gets annoying during a serious game (or you just have no idea who Sjokz and Quickshot are and find the voice pack totally lame) you can turn this special voice pack off and get back to the classic original voice which is just perfect.

: New Players in Silver ranked
I agree. I sometimes encounter really bad players in my silver games and when I look them up on op.gg they're like 3W 11L and never played ranked in earlier seasons, why do they have Silver MMR? And how did they get placed in Silver V with 3W 7L or worse in their placements? Back in 2013 when I played my very first ranked games I went 2W 8L in my placements and got placed into Bronze IV.

: What, you regret the old client ? Are you kidding ? That shit was bloated af.
Okay, correct me if I'm wrong, English is not my native language so I had to look up the word: urbandictionary says bloated means "having way more features than you would ever use to the extent of slowing down the system" The system was faster with the old client than with the new one. Yeah there were features I didn't use but at least it had features like the statistics pages. Before I discovered op.gg I always used these. The new client does nothing useful except starting a game. The old client didn't have that BE loot gambling stuff iirc so you could even argue against the new client having more useless features xD New client has better graphics, that's kinda everything. It's slower than the old one and it's bugged all over the place like you can still not sort your champions by mastery in champ select even though it is intended you can. I'd say neither of the clients is bloated though. There are more useful external 3rd party features than any client had or will ever have.
: 170 people according to Travis Gafford
Yeah I have seen his VLOG or what that was too... and I agree with him, it's so sad... 170 people, that's like half of an average university lecture... It's the World Championship Light, the 2nd most important tournament of the year and you have less live viewers than in a measly bbq vs MVP regular season game in Korea. It's not like it's only 170 because nobody wants to be there, I bet they could fill an arena with a few thousand even for group stage games at 11 AM local time, as I said it's the 2nd most important tournament there is...

: Is it hard to understand that I'm talking about people learning the basic in ranked, which you shouldn't do ? Ofc you improve, doesn't mean you can just launch a ranked with a champ you never played before. /Doh TBH I would like Riot to lock the champions in ranked that aren't at least lvl 5. Yes you can get it without being that good, but it avoids the first timers which I think should be banned, it guarantees a minimum play time on that champ. It also means new player should at least get several champ lvl 5 before going into ranked. Which doesn't seem to be a bad thing to me.
That's true, I agree with you on that. One can debate the threshold like does it have to be mastery 5 or is mastery 3 or whatever sufficient - some learn faster than others - but some guaranteed playtime should be in order... Ofc then you'd have problems with trading in champ select like I can't pick Garen for my toplaner because I don't have mastery on Garen and my top doesn't have mastery on Jinx to trade her with me. What I meant iirc was that in a losing game you can still use the time to improve, it's not always a total waste of time.

Empty your friend list. Yeah, I sometimes want an invisible mode too.

: My thought on the changes

Spending IP on runes doesn’t feel good and comes at the expense of unlocking champs. > That's true. I like the change that runes are for free now. Didn't affect me at all because I already had all the runes but for new players free runes are so much better. > > 2. Grinding to unlock champions takes too long, especially for newer players. > Well, exactly how did that change? New champion still costs 6300 and as you can calculate you don't get more BE than IP. > > 3. Lots of players have huge IP balances with nothing to spend it on. > And now I have a huge BE balance with nothing to spend it on. What's the difference?
