: In Hearthstone they add more cards ech expmasion that tere is champions in leauge. At this point in standard you have more than 600 cards...
Yes I know that, but I like the idea. I know they can't add as many champions as there are cards in Hearthstone but on the other hand you don't need this many champions. I think that some sort of champion rotation would help balance the game and naturally refresh the meta. But I know it's not that easy. That would require like 15+ champions / year and many people (including me) would be sad to not be able to play their fav champions anymore. Still, I think it's just impossible to have a perfectly balanced game with a roster of 120/150/200+ champions.

: i guess you are new to this game some other champ have invisibility mechanics . eve , shaco , twitch , teemo , leblanc , neeko , talon , wukong i may forget some . it's just a mechanics depending on skill . unlike silence way back in season 3-4 with leblanc oneshooting anyone WITHOUT ANY COUNTER . stop complain for nothing, look at what league use to be , keep a sense of proportion especialy with way more toxic mechanics left in the game and improve yourself :)
Comparing assassin's invisibility and Vayne getting invisible with each tumble is straight up dishonest.
: There is no flaw in that statement. "healthiest meta" and "characters nobody wants to play" are not mutually exclusive. Not to mention i NEVER said that nobody wants to play them. People not finding them attractive doesn't mean people don't want to play them.
If the meta force people into characters they don't want to pick, nor to face, it's not an healthy meta. Pushing people to pick characters most people don't like to play or to fight against is unhealthy in itself. This isn't healthy for the game. It's a "cleaner" meta, yes, because roles are more defined and the course of the game is clearer, but certainly not healthy. Also stop being silly. People want to play pick they find attractive.
: Worst season yet?
It's not good, but that's not the WORST. As a jungler, I can tell the difference. Graves and Kindred suddunly became trash when Riot decided that jungle farm shouldn't be worth a penny, and they've been my mains for years. Botlane win games but it has always been the case to some extent and it's not such a big deal for me. Tank meta ... well let's pray that it never happens again. I probably won't have the courage to play a full season with only tanks and ADC, and where assassins and bruisers are just useless punching balls.
: The balance is out of the window,give up on expecting it
There are just too many champions. I've came to think that there should be a rotation, just like there is with card games such as Hearthstone and Magic.
: Red Trinket / Oracles CC Burst She's not that good alone.
Red tinket doesn't really work anymore. You still can't click her.
: Ban her.
You don't see her often so I'd rather ban something else, but when she's there it's such a pain

: People don't find tanks attractive, sure, but tank meta is actually the healthiest meta that exists in the game and it should be the norm. The problems league has had over the past months (or even a year) all come down to the lack of tanks in the games. The games are more of a coinflip than actual skill currently because one player can easily lose the game with one mistake, but in tank meta, there is more room to play around things and the TEAM making LESS mistakes is the one winning so it's harder for one person to fck it all up for everyone else so it becomes easier to carry those games. I agree though that tanks shouldn't be buffed with damage but with utility instead like tankiness or stun duration.
You're stating that the healthiest meta is the one revolving around characters you admitted nobody wants to play. I hope you see the flaws.
: everybody is saying things like it's frustrating because it doesn't depend on you but on your team i don't think it's the truth, i've seen smurf with 93% winrate over 100 games, if that were the case how could they do it? and everytime i have a bad game i recognize that i'm playing poorly, not landing a single skillshot, getting caught in ambushes, overextending without vision, slow reacting times/poor decision making etc
It's not really the issue, I agree with you. In fact I'm not even able to point out why losing in e.g StarCraft will not be too much of an issue, and why most loss are still good games, while in LoL, when I'm losing I'm like "I'm having such a bad time, how is this even called a game when the experience is made of this".
: You're putting too much weight and value onto each game, causing you to lose sense of what matters. I know it sounds ridiculously philosophical, but try taking a break after losing a game. Additionally, turn on your favourite playlist while playing, or even talk to yourself while playing. I do it often, and it helps me with decision making.
Clearly it's not the issue. I'm not having a LoL burnout, as I was saying. I don't really care about my elo. But on other competitive game, even a game you're losing is often a good game. And if it's not you can quit. Not in LoL. In LoL, most games you're losing, your team (including you) is just waaay weaker than the ennemy team, or they have better picks, and you spend the whole game suffering, being impotent, and desperatly trying to come back which happens 1 time out of 10. A game where you're not winning is very rarely a good game.

: Tanks are not fun ? But I like playing Thresh and Leona :/ Tanks are pretty useless in this meta because there are so many items that counter them. I agree with buff/nerfs made with utility.
Most people don't find tanks attractive, and almost nobody likes to play against tanks. When you ask people which meta they hated the most it's either s4/5 tank meta, or ardent censer meta. I'm pretty happy to see them gone and hope they'll never ever return.
: If we talk about jungle, let's take seju. Epic ganks. Epic teamfighting. Cheap build. Slow immunity. Low CD mobility spell. HP% damage Builds full tank, doesn't die - still relevant damage source. Fast clear due to no cd on the stack damage spell. Jax indeed is bullshit, but at least he's manageable. Seju on the other hand, can't be focused, nor ignored. Score on her is pretty much irrelevant, since the core build is so cheap, you basically need 2-3 camps/clear to stay relevant.
At least Sejuani if you can dodge her bump you can do something. Jax there's nothing to do. He just run to you with legit 350 movespeed and top notch base stats and punch you in the face, if you try to punch him back he E and anyway he punch harder than you, and if you try to run away he Q again because it has no cooldown anyway. If you somehow survived the early game and you want to play teamfight by peeling for carries he will just split push faster than Trynda and win the game like that. It's always "fun" to see that for most Jax jungle, jax is their only >50% winrate character.

: Because they force smurfs to hit level 30 before they can start playing ranked? Honestly, ask yourself. If you were good at the game and created a new account to try and rank up, how on earth would you go about it without wading through those early games with other beginners? There isn't another way and while it may be frustrating for you, most smurfs don't do it intentionally. For most of us who aren't beginners, we would go straight into a ranked game at level 1 if it were possible, but that isn't the case.
Why would you have an other account in the first place ? The only reasons why you'd want a smurf are : 1 - You're banned (perma banned or not) and it's obvious that Riot don't want you to play ; 2 - You want to duoQ with someone who's too far below your true rank, that's boosting and that's obviously not tolerated ; 3 - You want to play "chill" games to not tryhard and then we're in the situation described in the OP, which is toxic af. In the end of the day I don't see any good reason to smurf, therefore I see no good reason for Riot to not hunt them and remove them.
