: League might be the most played game, but it's still completely free to play. Riot is basically funded off of donations
So you're just gonna ignore literally every other argument I made? If they can afford to outsource to big studios and artists they can afford to have their own team make some skins. If you go to Riot's twitter you'll find out Riot Employees have a research fund for each of their employees that is literally just "here's 300 dollars a year that you can spend any sort of game that you feel like spending it on." Riot isn't just some small time company that is scarping to get by just because their main product is free to play, they can afford to throw money at projects if they feel like it.
: not sure if you actually want an explanation or if it was rhetoric but i'll give you one anyway simply put riot can't afford to make skins for unpopular champions too often cause they don't sel nearly as much, riot runs thanks skins on popular champions, they're the ones that pay riot's bills and so they have to keep making them and once in a while they can splur on an unpopular champion skin when you get down to it it's simply a matter of money
" riot can't afford to make skins for unpopular champions" Riot is literally the most played game on the planet and has enough money to get profesional bands such as Imagine Dragon to compose music for them along with getting both fans and respected anime studios such as Studio Mir to make animations for them. I do not believe for a single second that they cannot *afford* to make a skin for any champion they damn well choose to throw money at.

: Hextech chests are a PRIVILEGE
Actually while still being a free thing Riot is giving us. Hextex chests are a grind system with seperate keys to encourage people to skip the grind and just buy them. Statistically they even have really bad odds at getting your money worth back but with all the added bells and whistles they encourage people's gambling habbits. To such an extend even that the US is currently conducting a class action lawsuit to get most game companies to remove lootboxes such as hexchest from games since they pray on the use of adictive habbits and using stimulants. There's also this; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNjI03CGkb4 Which is an entire presentation that goes into the how and why a lot of monotization systems are the way they are and even go further in debt on systems like artificial grinding and the use of card packs/loot boxes

No idea though I like the idea of a sweet heart lulu, or possibly cuz why not, a heartbreaker lulu cuz idk.
Megidus (EUW)
: Lux's cooldowns
In general she's just a very bland champion at this point. She used to be pretty big but now that every champ is skillshot reliant she's just boring, even more since she only has one solid combo rotation with the same set up and the same pay of, every. single. time.
bgfighter21 (EUNE)
: Why is this a thing (troll nation)?
If anything they could get them flagged for using official art work but the orginization is entirely none profit and they're not exactly doing anything illegal so I doubt they'd be able to shut down the site.

: How to fix reworked Kayle's model
actually looks a lot better considering how minor the change is.
: buff zed??
Its a minor buff with a nerf to his ult. It's not that major.
Èclair (EUNE)
: But this is all for the sake of visual feedback - it's necessary so people would know that she spikes at certain levels. Having a champion literally get free true damage past level 16 and not telegraph it through visual medium such as their model, animations or SFX would be a little off. Pulsefire Ez just has cool effects while leveling up. Why would that stop Riot from making a champion that changes visually after a power spike? Elementalist Lux and Kayne share the same transformation mechanics yet I don't see people complaining about that.
It's just food for thought. I'm not making a complaint, just something I've noticed.
Èclair (EUNE)
: You're pretty quick to judge skins that weren't even released to the public eye just yet, only their splash arts.
We've seen Kayle's transformation in her teaser trailer, it's her passive that makes her grow more wings, lose her helmet and split her sword. A long transformation that happens over the course of Kayle leveling up throughout the game. it's the same as Ezreal's pulsefire skinline which also slowly goes through a transformation throughout the course of the game through leveling up.

I personally play nosferatu which... you know. and soul stealer. I can agree Blood Lord is a bit out of date though.

: Rox Bans 5 Supports, agaisnt female team Vaevictis, in Competitive
I dont think it's as much sexist as it is RoX taking the piss at Vaevictis for playing a low elo (for the competative scene) team.
: All you do is pointing out the problem and the, obviously, bad solution. But what would your fix look like?
- Increase the radius. - Make is so that a proc isnt consumed out side of radius so you dont lose potential gold even when you do have a lane partner. - Change the passive so that leveling it to the ward form doesnt remove the farm penality untill the item is fully upgraded. - Possibly look at cleptomancy instead of punishing supports (this would affect more than just top and supp though most likely). anyone of those possibly.

I'd like for a character that is a bit more subtle than neeko but more in your face than varus. just someone where you can listen to his quotes and go "oh, huh. I never noticed that". Whether they are male or female I dont quite care about but I would like an LGBT character that's handled like that.

Arrow to the knee has nothing to do with marriage or whatever. It was never intended this way. PS: OP is full of shit as well by making such dumbass claim PPS: Beautiful documentary btw. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKn9yiLVlMM&ab_channel=Noclip

Silent Note (EUNE)
: Why are people in ARURF so much more toxic than people in normals/ranked?
Because randomness means less control, even more when facing stomp matchups which just get frustrating in general. As a rule of thumb, I feel like the less control you have over a situation the more frustrated you'll feel because of it. which is why i prefer draft since my pick is my own and an enemy team is purely because i decided not to ban something and nothing else, while ARUF is just a random dice through that can go either of two ways, you have fun or you dont.

You'd think that after 8 years they'd have something so minor figured out already, or atleast have it so it didnt happen during every damn event.

Yes, He gets the full Ult including passive abilities.

: Does it have anyconnection with this https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/developer-corner/uk0MeJ18-update-on-yesterdays-capsule-pricing-error ?
Not quite, I was just hoping for something new and we didn't get that, the overall update seemed underwhelming to me and like it needed to ride off of old skinlines to create any form of hype which is somewhat dissapointed. I was also hoping for either a good versus event or oddessey like event and while we did get a versus, it lacks the usual charm of the event, getting completely rid of the lore behind the event that prior versus events did have. Overall this just made the entire update a little lackluster and dissapointing to me

: You are putting words in my mouth. I never said that the PR drama around Riot isn't having an impact. I'm saying that the thread makes it sound like that is the only reason for the decline.
I'm not saying that it's the only reason for the game's recent decline though I do think it's the majority of it, noting to the image I send before showing how low Fortnite actually ranks in earnings on PC and how most of it's revenue is made on Console, making it less of a direct competator.
Shamose (EUW)
: There is a difference between a new game becoming mildly populair. And how Fortnite grew. Show me a f2p game that grew to 2.4B$ in 1.5 years time like fortnite did. Show me a f2p game that had the hype and attention fortnite did.
I understand how Fortnite would be a factor but to think that the backlashe, scandles and monatization schemes of this year had no effect on the current downfall in the revanue of the game, especially conidering Fortnite's preformance has mainly been on console rather than PC, would be ignorant https://svirtus.cdnvideo.ru/MMLAx8LKFN5f1G_3BmArauf3OdY=/0x0:908x540/800x0/filters:quality(95)/https://hb.bizmrg.com/cybersportcom-media/d1/d14d7a0b6f2bdf23a55c99f4374d7829.jpg
Shamose (EUW)
: Nice biased thread. Of course the decline is all about how Riot is running the game into the ground. Not about how a new Free2Play title has exlpoded in popularity or how a long time juggernaut MMO just released a new Expansion. But of course, _Rito bad._
Doen't explain how the game dropped below WoW which I was towering over before. https://www.altchar.com/games-news/577686/league-of-legends-revenue-falls-lower-than-wows And in general I'd be impressive if it turned out that in 2018 where Riot had possibly the most backlash of all time, the game dropped by such a large margin by pure coincident.

: It’s a joke?
When a gain outweighs a loss. For example, dying for a large amount of shutdown gold. sure you died but you also gain the additional gold from shutting your enemy down so it's worth. Most people use the term ironically though. Simply overextending and then screaming worth when it really wasnt, like sacrificing three teammates for a single kill (which im very guilty off).

: > 14/01/2019: - A public post was made towards Riot's abysmal player support system. where a player was given about 5 different reasons for his ban before closing the ticket and leaving said player both frustrated and confused. Clutching at straws...
It's a small note but point being that a player got banned and asked player support for help, who then escelated the situation by first saying he was banned for player behavior, when he asked for logs, they changed their reasons. this then contiued until a Rioter stepped in and told the player he was banned for using third party software and closed the ticket. It's a terrible way of handeling player support with players rotating between different different Rioters during the same ticket and only creating more trouble. Even with all the major things that happened in terms of game breaking bugs I personally see this as a pretty major point because the entire purpose of the player support is to help resolve issues and in some cases lately they've only seem to leave players more confused and frustrated as when they started their ticket.

: > Not even a single word about why they won't just ban the heavy abusers. Why should they?
In broad terms, because it puts up a bad standard, a system only holds up if it well.. holds up, if people are allowed to abuse bugs or mistakes more and more people who previously didnt want to abuse at the fear of getting banned will feel more at ease with the idea of abusing the system of their own game. Most likely out of frustration as to people that do not abuse the system, letting this go unpunished will feel unfair in most cases. TL;DR Taking a weak stance against people who abuse the system will only encourage more people to start abusing the system too.
Tarolock (EUNE)
: if ppl would be so upset with account boosters (who also get the free skin from ranked rewards) lol would be a better place, but nope, a pretty big % of the playerbase could get the skin from reaching gold because their friends boosted it, but its fine, now a few thousand player got some free capsules and you want to burn down riot, gj
I'm also not okay with account boosting, it negatively impacts the game for many people, which is why Riot actually puts in the effort to ban boosters. My issue with this is that refusing to respond to people abusing a bug encourages those that previously didnt, to now want to do the same as they may feel cheated and see that Riot is not taking a stance against this kind of behavior.
Tarolock (EUNE)
: and what do you suggest what they should do? cos they explained that there is no way to revert it, since most ppl are using the capsules instantly and prolly disenchanted the skins they dont like from it and there is no way to know what was bought from this "bug" and what is legit content as for abusing it next time: go for it, and if you are at that spread the word but dont let riot know about it so they will be more careful next time
there's a log, in your client, that shows both your purchase history and the things you've unlocked. tracking down the exploit abuse should not be that hard..

: Why isnt Riot making skins for the champions that need them?
From the top of your head try to think of a vel'koz skin. Now do the same for teemo, chances are that you had a lot easier time thinking of something for teemo than you did for vel'koz and that is why some champions have more frequent skins than others, as their design allows for more creative designs without breaking the silhouet of the characters or making something that doesnt feel right on the character.
: Zoe Paddle Star (Q) max damage AP ratio lowered from 150% to 125%
(Zoe can one shot but so can many other champs thus she should be allowed to do so.) I kid but in all seriousness I dont think reducing a champion's damage is that bad of a thing, as long as its later balanced by lower the damage of other champs too. Thing is, if noone bites the bullet on taking the first couple of nerfs instead of just a constant string of buffs, we'll end up with the same mess as season 8.

A lot of people who already saw the skins for example would downvote. e.e I think you put a lot of effort into this post and it deserves nothing but upvotes, so have mine! Also I used to say Your Welcome a lot but then I found out it's You're Welcome :3 Now people will downvote me for being a grammar n*zi, just watch!
Too be fair that kind of behavior does encourage people to mind their grammar and gives them more practice with the english language. And if anything I think people may be downvoting for prestige vayne since we've been getting a prestige skin per skin release now which for a "rare collector" skin, makes the entire skin line fairly dull.
