It's not up to Riot to decide how you live your life. Is it addicting? Yes, it is. Should Riot do something about it? No! League is addictive because, nowadays, people lack discipline. Something doesn't become an addiction unless you let it become one. This goes for pretty much anything in life. There's a saying that goes "Quite while you are ahead". Even if something becomes an addiction, it isn't impossible to get rid of it. That's why we have rehabilitation for substances abusers. Is it hard to get rid of it? Yes, but if you have the discipline you can do it. Your problem is lack of discipline. Pay close attention to those words: **your problem**; not Riot's problem. *** > [{quoted}](name=roboticreality,realm=EUW,application-id=NzaqEm3e,discussion-id=BXRfkmv6,comment-id=,timestamp=2019-03-24T19:26:57.991+0000) > > I think there should be a feature in the client where players can select that they only want to play X games a day What will this accomplish? That's not how you deal with addiction. It baffles me how naive you are to even suggest that. The only way to cure it is by removing the patient from that environment. Saying "You can play, but only X games per day" is like telling a drug addict "You can sniff cocaine, but only once every X". You will **never** be cured if you do this. *** > [{quoted}](name=roboticreality,realm=EUW,application-id=NzaqEm3e,discussion-id=BXRfkmv6,comment-id=,timestamp=2019-03-24T19:26:57.991+0000) > > A feature like this would be very helpful for some people like me I have a better feature for you: uninstall League and substitute it for something else. For example, start working out. If you're addicted to something and keep doing it, even if regulated, you'll never get rid of it. *** > [{quoted}](name=roboticreality,realm=EUW,application-id=NzaqEm3e,discussion-id=BXRfkmv6,comment-id=,timestamp=2019-03-24T19:26:57.991+0000) > > at least make it so you can help people be a little more responsible. Again, no. It's not up to Riot to teach you discipline. That's something you should learn while you're growing up. Discipline starts at 2 years of age and lasts all your life.
Well for many people like myself, league is a long term hobby. We play this game for years and years and support the game, and it doesn't hurt to care for your playerbase a little more by adding features that help their mental well being and life. Not everyone has good self discipline to stop playing immediately at the right time, and a feature like this can be a gentle reminder that you are playing too many games, cool off for a bit. League has existed for many years now and for it to remain one of the biggest games in the world, it won't hurt to add features that will help look after and care for the players of league by adding small features like this that can help their well being. Of course not everyone would use a feature like this, but I think many people would find it useful, just my two cents.

: it would lead to longer q time as there are like i dont know 100mil players and a LOT of them play 20+ games per day so imagine like half of players on each server having their acc locked for couple of hours i think that would be a mess,tho i agree but either go out and hang out with friends or go see a doctor
Well I was thinking it would be an optional button in the settings, and most players probably won't use this option and don't care how many games they play, probably only the minority of players will use this game-number-limiting option so I don't think queue time will be heavily affected really
