Oh great! He's gonna be happy to receive his Dragon Trainer Tristana! I wish it will help him find the heal button {{sticker:sg-miss-fortune}} . Thanks again for all of the volunteers working hard to bring us those events {{sticker:zombie-nunu-hearts}} .
: What to buy late game
Elixirs make you stronger: {{item:2138}} {{item:2139}} {{item:2140}} . So late game you have 6 items + 1 elixir.
: Short guide on how to get your opinions heard and taken seriously :
This legit needs to be pinned permanently on the boards.
: How should you ask for a gank top lane?
If they are on your side of the map, they clearer their camps, and the lane is in the condition you asked, then the gank is free and they should take it. The only thing I can think of is a drake spawning soon and they wanna recall and go rush it on spawn.
: Should I just go into normal games and forget about bot games?
Hey there! I would generally recommend playing against humans since you will learn so much more against them. Your first games will be rough and you'll feed a lot, but it's a part of the process. Players with PvP experience will always play differently than those who only faced bots. You should only use bots to try out new champs for the first time. If you need somebody to play some bots with you, don't hesitate to add me ingame.

: It is quite hard mission to make . I mean it took me a lot of games to complete it and i got it . About the champion Sett in that card it says quote "U will be seeing him soon" so its posible u will get champion for free . Or something related to that champion like skin his premium emote or something else like banner or idk . I really hope its something good and quest is hard so i think people who did that mission deserve something special.
I don't think it's gonna be the champ or the skin, it seems a bit too good to be true (but it's not impossible). I agree on it being a special emote or border. Something along those lines.

: Suprised by honor system
Hey there! Yes, they actually made getting your honor back less punishing not long ago. But it's not all. What you should know is that how fast you get your honor back depends on you behavior and how good you act. So while you were able to do it in 3 weeks, another player might need many months. So it might be that your behavior was better this time.
: LOCO reviving?
Hey there! > I hold this idea since LOCO is offline Did you mean "online" ? I don't think this will ever happen for many reasons: * Riot forge is only about offline games * All their games most be story driven in the world of Runeterra (the league universe) * It's not that Riot forge asks devs to make games for them (Riot forge is a publisher). It's dev studios that come to contact Riot forge to ask them if they can make a game in the league universe. Basically, if I was a game studio, I could contact them to ask "I'd like to make an rpg featuring the story of Miss Fortune showing her life and how she took revenge on Gangplank" LOCO fails at all those conditions since it's online, it got nothing to do with the league universe and it's devs are the ones who abandoned it. They are more chances that Riot adds that kind of gameplay in a temporary mode (like one for all), than Riot forge publishing it. Sorry for bringing bad news XD
: freljord - http://prntscr.com/qhle20 Blessed(Shadow Isles) - http://prntscr.com/qhlfkr
Okay I see what you are talking about. I think this is just a coincidence. The blessed eyes always had an eye in their symbol since they had a lot of knowledge and could use visions. So it's not really related the the cataclysm that happened there. For the Frejlord, it's just a watcher statue. It just happened that those creatures have one big eye (at least some of them).
: Something strange about LoL's universe
Hey there! Can you send some images to know what exactly you're talking about? (just want to avoid confusion)
: Anyone knows what happens if you buy a Prestige skin for a champion you do not own?
Hey there! It's either: 1. You can't 2. You will buy it but you won't be able to use it until you buy the champion

In low elo, most people won't build them just to counter him. People follow standard builds most of the time. And death's dance isn't really a counter to him.
Kalviras (EUW)
: So basically aye he's god tier pick in lower elos. God I hate those champs so much...
If it's against a full AD team, yeah he's definitely god tier.

: Realistic map of league
The map looks gorgeous artistically. It looked epic on the first person view you showed. I don't really think it will work on a moba (due to performance and distraction), but I love how it looks! Keep up the good work {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}} !
Kalviras (EUW)
: When did Rammus become so OP?
> If you don't have AP is he just an unkillable god? Short Answer: YES! Rammus is meant to counter AD comps, especially those who rely on their autos. His W have a natural Thornmail and if he gets the item, you literally kill yourself while hitting him. While his W is active, his armor gets to huge amounts like 800. So yeah, he's impossible to kill for AD champs and most of them will die from hitting him. That's his job basically. But he got no mobility except from his Q so he's easily quitable. But as a general advice, this is why you should never go full AD or AP but you need a mix of both. (It's the same for full tank malphite)
: already seen that guide (i'm even subscribed to the channel :) ) but i'm afraid i'm too tunneled on that build so i was trying to change it a bit (also warwick has a 100% AP scaling on Q that's why i picked echoes for a more offensive build) i wanted to try my old (pre rework) build on him, maybe i'll have more luck {{item:1419}} {{item:3074}} {{item:3078}} {{item:3065}} {{item:3068}} {{item:3111}} but i still have the tank build as a back up. thanks for the tips :) do you happen to know how to increase vision score when the enemy doesn't ward? (low elo) where do i put wards to have the most effect on them?
Hey there! > but i'm afraid i'm too tunneled on that build so i was trying to change it a bit Why would you be afraid to be tunneled on a build if it's the best one and works great? Changing just for the sake of changing isn't a good idea. And the "build" from that video is like 5 build ideas and not one. > also warwick has a 100% AP scaling on Q that's why i picked echoes for a more offensive build Yes, but his Q is the only ability that scales with AP AND AD scaling on it is 120% (which is more than 100%) without forgetting that AD also benefits auto attacks (he is a heavy auto champ). So if you want to go more offensive, pick {{item:1412}} instead as it gives 60AD. Warrior will benefit his Q, his autos and his ult (it have a 167% bonus AD ratio). > i wanted to try my old (pre rework) build on him, maybe i'll have more luck Well, the thing is, he got reworked so that build isn't as effective as before: * His maxed W also gives him 110/275% attack speed (depending on enemy health) so he have no reason to buy even more of it, especially since there is an attack speed cap in-game. * Warwick's idea is about being tanking enough to benefit from the crazy healing on his passive when he's bellow 50/25% of his HP and also survive until his next Q. His idea is about healing over time. If you are very squishy and get one shot, you won't be able to benefit from your kit and just keep dying. > do you happen to know how to increase vision score when the enemy doesn't ward? (low elo) where do i put wards to have the most effect on them? Yyes, you can easily increase your vision score. The answer is easier than you think: Adaptation! (Yes, same word again XD). Junglers generally take {{item:3364}} to kill enemy wards and move unseen (especially for ganks). But if enemies don't wards, then you just need to keep {{item:3340}} . You won't have to worry about being seen and you'll have even more vision of them. Warding the enemy jungle is always useful and make your life easier on top of increasing your vision score since he's guaranteed to move there. Don't hesitate to change your free trinket many times a game depending on the situation. You can take {{item:3364}} just to sneak a drake and then switch back to normal wards on your next recall (if enemies don't ward in that game). Here are some generally good spots (Wards that show champions or epic monsters keep giving maximum value in term of vision score): * Near an enemy buff (like between blue and gromp). * In the pixel brush (the river brush) to defend your midlaner. It will spot the enemy jungler ganking him or doing scuttle crab. * Enemy jungle entrances since he'll always use them to enter or exist his jungle. * In front of the Drake/Herald pit (not inside but not too far). This will show both the river and the drake so it's a great spot.
: not a new player but i DO need advice
Hey there! I'm gonna assume you know how to use all his spells correctly. **As a general advice:** I noticed by experience from my friends that the more you focus on getting an S, the more you'll fail to get it since focusing too much on score like cs/deaths tend to hold back your gameplay. Just do you best and you'll eventually get it ;) Don't forget that the mastery score is you compared to others playing the same champ in the same role in the same elo. So you don't have to worry about general things like early cs since you are compared to other Warwick jungle players. **For runes:** * Grasp is awful on him. The main power of that rune is to be able to proc it each 4s and keep stacking it infinitely (it gives permanent health). As a jungler, you won't be spending too much time against enemy champs. * Conqueror is alright on him, but not the best. * PTA is the best rune on WW. He can proc it easily and it makes enemies vulnerable which means that it increase his damage AND his allies' damage during the ganks. **Does counter jungling matter?** * First of all, if you go to the *stats* tab in one of your matches, you'll notice that there is a "Neutral minions killed in enemy jungle" stat that is tracked. * Secondly, it basically means more farm for you. So more gold and experience, which means more stats and higher chances of killing the enemy jungler or having more successful ganks. * And thirdly, and this is the more important point: This meta is about starving the enemy jungler. You need to be able to better track him. Once you do, go steal his camps and kill him each time he show up near them. Once you succeed, abuse that and keep repeating it until he becomes less than a minion. With the removal of catch-up exp, each camp you steal for the enemy jungler will put him so much behind especially since there is no going back. This basically means that you will have more farm available to you and that he can't secure drakes or gank (or fail all his ganks) because he is so far behind. This in turn means that your team will have more chance of winning in general. **For ganks:** Make sure to abuse them too. Once you gank and an enemy use flash, if he doesn't fall back after you go, just come back immediately and that's an easy kill. A kill or an enemy recalling should always mean pushing and taking some plates (free gold). Try to take both heralds as then provide tons of free plates. Drakes are super important right now, but Heralds shouldn't be forgotten. **Warwick advices:** Warwick is very strong right now because his clears are fast once he gets his tiamat, he have an obscene amount of sustain, is strong in 1v1 due to his W, can solo objectives like drakes at level 4/5 and is very fast to move around the map due to his passive. He perfectly fits the current meta. Aside from Tiamat and then Titanic Hydra, WW's build is super flexible as you can take damage, defense or both. So make sure to adapt based on your team (do you have too many damage dealers or do you lack damage?), the enemy team (which resistances to buy) and based on how you are performing (if you are ahead, don't hesitate to go offensive). Also, don't buy {{item:1414}} , that's an item that gives AP, it's for AP champs like Elise or Diana, not for WW and Skarner. Same for {{item:3074}} , it's not that good on WW. Here is a very recent guide that will give you tips about pathing, playstyle and itemisation: [Warwick Guide](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbHEQslsavQ)

: Yeah but hes talking about if they swap roles
Yeah I noticed and deleted my message. You must have opened the page before I did.
IkPatrick (EUNE)
: As i said i think it would need some tweaking but it would be a nice addition. Putting it into the ult with 3 stacks would definitely be a good way to avoid the chaos
Adding that to his kit in some way or another would definitely be a great idea!
IkPatrick (EUNE)
: Integrate the "Jungle Army" into Ivern's passive/kit
Why not an addition to his ult? Passively, his ult would store up from 1 to 3 camps (only the big monster of a camp, so for wolves, it's only 1 and not 3) when he free them (depending on the ult level). And actively, it will summon those camps along with Daisy. Or something among those lines. This will avoid the chaos of that video or some crazy split pushing but would still be cool and interesting.

: What's the story between God king Darius and God King Garen?
Hey there! Here are their descriptions: * **God-King Garen:** God-King Garen stands as the last scion of an ancient divinity, and the final bulwark against the end of all civilization. He rules the vast kingdom of Demacia with an iron fist, jealously protecting his people as a self-styled messiah, while rooting out and destroying all who would oppose him. * **God-King Darius:** God-King Darius is a bringer of true carnage—the descendant of primordial deities long forgotten in the shadow of Demacia. Slaughtering monarchs and gods alike, he seeks to end the false world of unity and peace, ushering in an age of endless war where only the strongest will survive. In that skin line, Garen seeks the good of the people by uniting them but does that by force and literally acts as a dictator. While Darius wants freedom, war and anarchy to make a world where only the strongest will survive. So both of them have their good side and bad side. Fun fact: God-King Garen is a descendant of Dawnbringer Riven while God-King Darius is a descendant of Nightbringer Yasuo. What Darius destroys during his recall isn't stairs, it's Garen's throne (the chair of the king). It's basically a symbol of breaking his rule.

Marissa (EUW)
: [Volu] Definitely don't gift a gift!
Hey there! First of all, thank you so much for holding those event! I'd like to nominate Mknight on the EUW server. Here is his [op.gg profile](https://euw.op.gg/summoner/userName=mknight). We met for the first time during our master degree and conversations started flowing very easily as we were almost the only gamers in the class. One thing led to another and we ended up mentioning league. Both of us were on a break from it and it ended up being a very good opportunity to get back to the game. Since he's an adc main and to play in the same lane, I had to learn support and to main it. We played almost every day ever since and each days, he keeps shouting the same thing "stop stealing my kills". Every day is a hard fought battle for me having to tank those skillshots using my mighty mustache with Braum to hope he'll carry the game. Playing with him have been pretty fun and added a new twist to my league experience. He's still trying to convince me to duo in ranked with him and I keep saying the same things "You need to improve first before asking me that". He spent the last month trying to get an S on Tristana to raise her mastery to level 7 (but still fails miserably every game XD). So I'd like to offer him her Dragon Trainer skin as a reward! And yes! I still hate him for not using heal each time I'm going to die {{sticker:zombie-nunu-tears}} EDIT: He just got his mastery 7 today and is so overjoyed {{sticker:sg-miss-fortune}} !
Hajrulla (EUW)
: Yasuo S?
Hey there! KDA and cs aren't the only things that determines your score. There are plenty of other factors like your kill participation, your damage to champions, your damage to objectives, your vision score, etc... How much you need of each also depends the specific champion and role. Lux mid doesn't have the same gold as Lux support so it's very logical. Some champs are better at killing, some at taking damage, others at taking structures, etc.
: Placement After The First Ranked Game
Hey there! Ranked have nothing to do with normals. At the start of each season, a soft reset happens. It means that the rank of all players get lowered a bit (roughly, one tier). So someone who was platinium last season will start higher than someone who was silver last season. For accounts playing ranked for the first time ever, it seems that the basic rank is around bronze/silver. Keep in mind that placements are 10 games and not 1. What your friend saw is just a temporary placement.
: well with that being said, ** EXPERIENCE = (TIME × 0.0825 + 4.95) for intro 5v5** while each game that takes 15 min give me 120 xp + 3 min for loading into the game so 15 min (without counting the 3 min) = 80 xp and a 1 hour game = 300 xp **plus xp boost...** 640 xp / hour if I'm rushing 15 min 600 xp / hour if I'm extending it to 1 hour (somehow) NOTE: this is assuming you're lvl 30, if you're lower you should get like, 10-25% more so level 30 would require 35,000 xp = 58 hour game with xp boost what do you think?
I don't know much about the actual numbers. But normal players (those who play 2 to 3 games a day) manage to level up their accounts to 30 in like 3 weeks which seems quite fair and good for me. Don't forget that there a first win of the day mission that gives 400 exp.
: another question, I remember getting an xp boost when I made my first smurf account, so did they stop giving those? or do I need to do a specific quest to get it now
Yeah they stopped giving them. But they added a bunch of daily missions giving nice rewards like full champs or BE. You'll find the full list here: [Reward (BE/XP) System Breakdown](https://support-leagueoflegends.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/201752824-Reward-BE-XP-System-Breakdown)
: all of them were from the same mode all of them were a win all of them were the same time (14-15 min) > Keep in mind that people bellow certain levels get more exp from bots that could be it, though I'm still lvl 6
14-15 is **not** the same time as each second counts and gives more exp. Here is the formula: EXPERIENCE = (TIME × (XP/s) + Base XP) (rounded to nearest integer) the "xp/s" and the "base xp" both change depending if it's a win or loss As you can see, each second counts and will give more experience. You can refer to this link for more details: [Experience (summoner)](https://leagueoflegends.fandom.com/wiki/Experience_(summoner))
: what determines my game xp reword?
It's not random. It's based on which mode (bots, SR, or arams), if it's a win or lose and game time. So longer games give more than shorter ones and winning gives more than losing. It have nothing to do with your score. Basically, everybody on your team will be getting the same amount of exp. PS: Keep in mind that people bellow certain levels get more exp from bots.
: that is not correct dear sir, because if you go into the forums you will be asked for a code. this one has been the original email. look it up yourself. and again, he is still in contact with the guy and see him using he. how if he did not retrieve it by his own?
1/ That email can be changed by contacting the support, that's what I was trying to explain. 2/ I can ask my friend to change his name on discord and make a fake conversation with him. Your "proof" doesn't mean anything.
: I now that it dosnt go through walls but before would he keep on dashing in to the wall and not turn direction like it does here since you can se that he goes in to the wall for a tiny bit and then changes. Before were the whole duration in to the wall and he didnt change positionning.
Yes that's why I said it's a weird interaction, that's a bug for sure.
: "So he either bought it from the original owner who is doing that scam. Or he bought a stolen account that was reclaimed by the original owner. In either way there is no way for your friend to prove that the person that reclaimed it is the person who is selling accounts." uhm, yes there is. since he had all the information including the original email from a boards login try and the person is still talking to him in discord. mocking him. and on discord you can see him play. there are many ways to prove that the original owner did scam him. and why would that even matter? please delete your comment since it is simply not true and doesn´t help for a discussion "Riot is like a private company, who can do whatever they want to people that use their service according to the ToU" neither does that help all. i actually did say they do what they want. and only because they are allowed to do it, doesn´t mean they have to lie and abuse their power. no?
No, his point is very valid and even if it was false, there is no reason to ask him to delete it just because you disagree. That's not how a discussion works. I'll put it in very simple terms for you: * Person A is the original owner and he used "email A" and "password A" * Person B stole that account, he changed the info to "email B" and "password B" * Person C is your friend who bought it from Person B, he changed the info to "email C" and "password C" All your friend got at the start are info "B" including boards login and whatever. So the only thing you are proving is the scammer. Nothing proves that he is the original owner since your friend didn't talk to person A and never had info A. You are just assuming that person B and A are the same person.
: Riot have you shadow nerfed ornn ?
This definitely does seem like a weird interaction. But the thing is, your ult (the dash) never went trough walls... So ulting there wouldn't have worked anyways.

The punishments depend on the gravity of the situation. If you say something extreme like racism or asking people to die, it's a direct ban.

But did you get a chest with Ashe before? You can check that on your collection with a small chest icon. You can only get 1 chest per champion per season. You should also not be honor locked.
: How do Aurelian Sol work?
He's pretty hard champ. His whole idea resolves around having perfect positioning so enemies are always in your passive star range taking damage without hitting you back. Your ult also push enemies to your star range if they get close. He's also very good at roaming with his expending Q and his E.
MrLukaUbica (EUNE)
: How bad of a person do you have to be to do this
Hey there! Let me at least reassure you, those players are only punishing themselves and you are 100% safe. Reports don't punish anybody and don't have any value (in term of numbers). When there is a report in a game, it just means that the Riot bot will check that game to judge if anybody needs to be punished. It basically means that fake reports are useless, and 1 reports have the same power as 10. Calling others to report X player is actually a punishable offence ;)
: In most cases it isn't the smoking that's addicting people, but external circumstances meaning they don't have the mental surplus to really commit to quitting, and some just enjoy it.
But the same applies to league and video games in general. Many players use them to escape reality, even if they know it's bad for them and that they are addicted. And yes some enjoy it of course.
Blotniak (EUNE)
: But still, if someone's addicted to something, they find their behaviour as something completely normal to them. It's hard to find truly addicted person who understands that what they're doing is "bad".
Counter example: Most people who smoke know that it's very bad for their health, and yet they can't stop because of the addiction.
Blotniak (EUNE)
: Hello there! I understand your point of view, but there are some things I don't agree with. I know that "Massive Online" is a part of the MMORPG acronym, and I know that League isn't a game of this genre, but that doesn't change the fact that many people are playing it at the same time. It's true that socializing is a part of MMORPG's, but that doesn't change the fact that in league you are thrown into a group of people you kinda have to interact with in order to achieve that victory, and it's not said that you can't make friends through these "interactions". It's also true that frustration builds in everyone and that the result of the game may be determined by the others's performance, but being "stuck" in a "lost" game is defintely not like bullying. Nobody wants to get bullied, but it's a "random" thing that can happen, and if it does it's always against our will, in contrast to playing League. We all know that games can go in different ways, but we are willing to do play anyway. Ability to accept defeat without feeling too "terrible", despite the reasons of losing, is something that everyone should learn in order to avoid situations like these. And about losing Lp because of others, the ranked system is something that is needed, something that gives that competitive feeling which is needed in games like League, that makes people want to play, but also it's the main reason of people getting tilted, mad, angry, jealous etc. It generates that "rush for victory" where people forget about the reason why they have installed the game in the first place: to have fun. When you are going to reach the most shiny rank at all cost, like many people, it's obvious that being dependent on others will be frustrating. I know it's needed for the game to stay "alive", but I don't think if it's healthly for the community in overall. Something that's the core, is the root of toxicity, at least in my opinion. It's not bad that someone can think otherwise!
> but that doesn't change the fact that in league you are thrown into a group of people you kinda have to interact with in order to achieve that victory, and it's not said that you can't make friends through these "interactions". I never said you can't bond with them, I made friends on league. My point was more "they aren't many factors to help you bond". You are forced to interact with people you'll probably never see again and with play style that may not match yours. Some are over agressive and love to tower dive, others are defensive and only go for secured plays. The games are also hard pressure where you are focused all the time, then the match end and good bye. They are aren't many ways to actually get to interact humanly with the other plays (you mainly only interact gameplay wise) except the emotes that were added recently. You don't even have time to think about it. There is also the fact that the only cases (in general) where you'll actually feel good about your teammates is when your team is winning and things are favorable for you. > It's also true that frustration builds in everyone and that the result of the game may be determined by the others's performance, but being "stuck" in a "lost" game is defintely not like bullying. Nobody wants to get bullied, but it's a "random" thing that can happen, and if it does it's always against our will, in contrast to playing League. We all know that games can go in different ways, but we are willing to do play anyway. Ability to accept defeat without feeling too "terrible", despite the reasons of losing, is something that everyone should learn in order to avoid situations like these. I greatly disagree with this part. Getting destroyed over and over by enemies (by them one shotting you ingame even under towers) and seeing them do taunts and masteries without having the option to get away from it is the very definition of bullying. It's exactly the same as real life. It basically happen each time your team is losing so it's far from random or rare. This have nothing to do with not accepting defeat, but more about the long minutes spent enduring that situation. If let's say people quit the moment they feel bad about the game and just lose, they wouldn't feel as frustrated. Just to make it clear, I'm not blaming it on league, this is something related to the nature of online team based games. > And about losing Lp because of others, the ranked system is something that is needed, something that gives that competitive feeling which is needed in games like League, that makes people want to play, but also it's the main reason of people getting tilted, mad, angry, jealous etc. It generates that "rush for victory" where people forget about the reason why they have installed the game in the first place: to have fun.

It's not bad that someone can think otherwise! You basically answered it yourself, having high stakes on games make people feel the rush for victory and get frustrated and mad. It's just natural. I'm not against ranked and YES it is core to league. If LoL wasn't a competitive game, almost nobody would play it. What I'm saying is that the nature of the game and it's competitive side have those side effects, it's not something that can be magically removed. As for this specific part: "people forget about the reason why they have installed the game in the first place: to have fun." No, they don't forget it, the twist is, they feel like their fun is being unfairly stolen and ruined by other teammates. That's when things become very bad and people turn toxic.

: Wondering: Why is it so hard for people to actually enjoy the game?
Hey there! Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. > I've made a conclusion: majority of players simply don't have fun. I definitely don't agree with that statement. If people didn't have fun, league wouldn't have such a huge playerbase and players wouldn't come to play again each time in such an addictive way. It's just that the negative people tend to be the loudest. People who enjoy the game won't be writing much in the chat. And on forums, they are usually posts about rants and rarely post about "I'm happy to be playing this game" since nobody feels the need to share that. I know many who genuinely enjoy the game. > I've always thought that video games, especially massive online productions like League are supposed to bring people together and to give a fun way of spending our free time. League isn't really a massively online game. That term generally refers to games likes MMORPGs because in those games, tons of players are actually playing together at the same time in a big world. In league, it's just 10 players in a closed match, and then you basically never meet them ever again so you don't really feel the need to bond with them. There aren't many factors helping people get together in a game in league. Most of the time, premades are people who met outside league (the game), either as real life friends or they met on some online communities. Another important factor is the nature of the game. In many online games like MMORPGs, your performance is what affects you and even in group fights (like dungeons and bosses), there isn't much problems with losing. In league, if your teammates are performing very badly, you'll just end up stuck in a 30min game without the option to bail out getting killed over and over again by the enemies, it's basically a terrible experience close to bullying. On top of that, you'll be losing LP at the end of the match because of somebody else. So it feels extra frustrating. As a person, I'm very chill, enjoy the game quite a lot and never get mad. But taking those things into account, I can definitely understand why some people can get mad over it. Don't forget that this frustration builds up over many games (and promos). League is the kind of game with big highs and big lows. It generally feels amazing to be popping off and dominating the game. And it feels equally awful when you are on the other side getting crushed. Then it feels even worst if you were popping off but you then got crushed because somebody else fed. For many players, it feels "unfair".
: I am glad you are interested in it! Thanks for your advice as well, will do. Happy reading & let me know what you think of it :)
