: Actually there is a difference between enjoyment and addiction. the game is built on gambling effect. it's why this kind of behaviour takes place. gambling effect also keeps people in the game even if they don't like some part of the game so much they would have quit any other game eons ago
You are right. Sometimes "just quitting" isn't the answer.

: What's even more noticeable, a lot of people like to look around the boards to find those being _unjust_ towards the game and tell them how their claims are all wrong and how they are self guilty in everything they cry about. Amazing, how other people's feelings and personal judgements may be so important for someone! And it's even more amazing how many come only to moralize on the context they have never experienced themselves (or would never say that they have). It seems so... victorian!

: The ones speaking the truth. Then there is ultra fanboys who spit at the ones posting the truth
The truth cannot be clouded by negativity. When your mind is stuck on a lost game, it is impossible to write a decent, objective review about "that %%%%ing champ Fizz" If you refer to me as the "ultra fanboy" then I must disagree. If Riot makes something I do not like, I simply stop playing. Then I come back after a few weeks and see if anything has changed. It is their game, and they decide what is best for it. We can't all agree with all their decisions, but to cry about it on forums is simply not constructive. It is stupid.
: So calling our premde booster equalys 14 daus suspension!
This is the third post you made in a time span of 20 minutes. All your posts have rather questionable statements (Like a plat player boosting his bronze friend in ranked. That is not possible). I will refer you to a post I just made for exactly this reason :) https://boards.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/champions-gameplay-en/2YXYIomn-getting-mad-at-the-thing-you-enjoy-why-people-on-the-boards-love-to-hate Sometimes when you get angry, it feels like you have the moral high ground and that you in fact are the victim. It is important to realize that that is not true. Have a great day.

I did it because i stopped playing lol on a daily basis and wanted to chill, but still play ranked. Got the smurf to plat 4 and then switched back to my main account in Diamond 3.

There is not an AI nor a person who can write a piece of code so sofisticated that it can predict the actions of 10 random players to the point of deciding who wins or loses a game from the start. Oh, i don`t ask for that or the impossible. You know the current system does not even trys that. It clearly has complete different jobs. Firstly to end losing streaks for players who can`t win on there own. All other like the quality of match aka matchmaking comes way later. So i don`t critic the AI or the Human behind it...nah. I question it tasks. You see the different?
It still does not change my point. AI does not try to give someone a free win when they are on losing streaks. When you lose your MMR changes, so if you are on a huge losing streak, you will be matched against worse people. That is how the ranking system works. I do not see the difference.

: "don't flame" Same situation when someone's parents die and than someone asks "don't cry"
That is a comparison that should never have been made. It is nothing alike
: A simple mode based around the classic Summoner`s Rift
That sounds like a good idea. If you take the idea and make it be a bit more than "Pick a region and play only those champs" I think it would be a great concept. For example, you could have a passive for each region, Demacia could give you an interesting mechanic with healing, Noxus could deal more dmg in certain situations, etc. You could maybe get different minions and items too. It sounds fun on paper, but would probably take some time to make into a perfectly balanced game :D You got my upvote!

I am sorry if my replies have seemed negative to you. I personally do not see any negativity over them, however your replies are often filled with degrading attacking towards me. You have called me pathetic and sad, and I do not like your tone. I do not wish to argue anymore with you, it will go nowhere. This will be my last reply to you. Happy new year :)
: that is exactly NOT how it is.the fact alone that you picked 3of 70games says what? even IF i would have hard inted there. if i have 10on the other side, what does it do? that is all only what u assume. but it is nonsense. you did not even look into the games and speak such nonsense. how pathetic can u be to contribute in a discussion if you did not even read into the topic? stop assuming. start using your brain and get to the facts kid. can help you in life too
You do not seem to understand my comments. As I said in my previous comment, I took a quick glance at your match history. I picked the first 3 games I saw. I did not look at 70 games. I did not even look at 10. You are using the word nonsense a lot. My words are not nonsense, they are based on knowledge. Your replies are starting to become more negative and got a toxic nature over them. You are attacking me personally, and saying things that I do not appreciate. This is my last reply to this thread. I do not wish to argue anymore with you. Have a great day. Happy new year :)

: Well, you seem to be biased, or in denial. Sure, Master Yi doesn‘t have a skill ceiling, which makes it even worse. His „skill list“ consists of spamming Q every 2 seconds, shredding trough Armor with his E, literally saving himself with his busted W 70% damage reduction and near full health refill and make everything x2 with his R. Yi CAN face off 1 v 3 without ANY problem or repercussion, Vayne and Twitch, not so much. Let‘s say a Blitzcrank goes and grabs a Yi lategame (not fed, simply lategame) and he has an ADC and Mid Mage with him. After the grab, Yi simply presses E + R + Q, he is saved from most damage, of course kills the ADC first, heals with W, presses Q again, Mage down and then Blitzcrank is dead as well. Twitch and Vayne don‘t have a busted „save me“ ability like Yi‘s W. Sure, they can go invisible, but in ALL fairness, in that situation, Akali‘s smoke is more useful than the invisibility and also Yi‘s Q is better than invisibility in that scenario. Also, 5/5 is NOT a „you fed him“ stat. Especially when our Bot Team was far more fed than Yi and Mid was also better. You ALWAYS bring up Twitch and Vayne, who are grapes compared to Yi who is a Melon. Twitch and Vayne NEED a good start to be as dangerous as you say. But if they would also be „decent“ after 20 minutes, they wouldn‘t be any more dangerous than the rest of the team. To be frank, you seem to be too biased towards Vayne and Twitch for completley saying that „Yi is fine“. So i‘m just gonna leave the last word to be from "I need Love".
I am sorry if you have gotten the impression that I biased towards Vayne and Twitch. I agree that they are all strong in the late game, but I do not think any of them are currently overpowered. There are other champions who are in need of a nerf, but these are not. This is just my opinion, and I can see that you are not going to change your view. I hope you have a great day :)
: nonsense. learn the game before you judge things.
I am by no means a professional player, nor do I aspire to be so. However, I have learned a thing or two by playing League of Legends by many seasons. I promise you I do not make statements without having knowledge to back it up :) However, from our previous interactions "I Need Love", I can safely say that you are not interested in hearing my arguments, so I will stop the thread here.

Hi again :) I am beginning to sense a pattern here. I do not know why you are following and commenting on the threads I have commented on, but I am more than happy to reply to all of them. League of Legends is a complex game, and not something you can learn in a week. The entry-level might be high, but I do not know if it is too high. There are co-op and practice tools, including many guides on the internet. If you enjoy the game, you will stick around long enough for you to learn it.

I suggested that he removed the negativity from his life, and since League of legends is causing him so much anger and pain, to the point of him saying it is "misery", I suggested that he should stop playing if he did not enjoy it. I do not know why you are misinterpreting all my comments on this board, but I hope you know can see that I do not intend to make anyone unhappy. Have a great day :)

It still does not change my point. I do not know where you got the idea that i have reported you. I think you have misunderstood something. I do not flame you. I simply said that just like the rest of the playerbase, you can have bad games too. If you played every game perfectly, you would be higher elo. That is just how it is. Everyone makes mistakes, and that is okay.
Fyrijou (EUW)
: I have to somewhat disagree with you. Yes, Vayne and Twitch are a bother lategame, mainly because of their invisibility. But i am not talking about „fed from the beginning“, i am talking about lategame comeback. Like i said, Yi was very behind everyone else, yet managed to become op 22 minutes later with only 1 or 2 maxed items. Jax NEEDS to have a good start and keep up to be dangerous in lategame. His comeback isn‘t as strong, just like with Vayne and Twitch. And also, while Vayne has HUGE AD lategame when played right, she still needs to be careful. If she goes in 1 v 3, one wrong move could mean she is dead. The same with Twitch. But Yi on the other hand spams Q, dodges EVERYTHING with it, E to do extra damage, W when hurt and continues to spam Q.
I am going to do this short, because you do not seem to want to change your opinion about Master Yi being op. - Master Yi was 5/5 as you said, so he also kept up with you. If he went 0/5 he would not be that relevant after 25 minutes. - Master Yi got a skill ceiling, Vayne and Twitch can be played at a much higher level than him. - I will refer to my first comment on how to counter him. He is not as strong as you think.

I do not enjoy to play Counter-Strike, but just because I quit the game after a week does not mean it is doomed! I can write a whole essay about the flaws that I FEEL there are in CS:GO, but I know that many people enjoy to play it, so maybe the game isn't for me. If you are so angry and bored with the game, then why don't you stop playing? If you are new to the game, you haven't invested money or time into it, so it should be easy for you to just walk away from it. A piece of good advice is if you literally feel something is "misery" then you should not waste time on it.
: that is simply not true. there are no games like that at all. why would you lie like that only to talk so much nonsense? you did not even read, did you? i think THAT is important. to read before you talk. if you don´t understand what you did read, read it again. take 1 or 2 hours to think about it before you answer such nonsense
The statement you make that I am supposed to lie is false. I do not believe I am talking nonsense, and either you do not think I have easy access to your games at op.gg, or you are simply blind to the fact that many of these looses have a part of the blame on your shoulders. I have found 3 games where you clearly have not played at your best, and either let your laner get fed or not taken advantage of your own early lead. By quickly glancing at your match history I have found 3 games where it is clear that you could have done things better. https://gyazo.com/a7a60c23fe3c2decdd5f8841ae26a7e7 https://gyazo.com/9ddb3290d42bb837c08c70e3ecd68e50 My point from the previous comment that you seem to have missed, is that you can do bad too. You can have an off game, and that is completely okay. Players are only human, and outlying circumstances can make them play worse on a given day. Your last sentence is a mocking of my previous statement where I asked you to take a couple of hours to see the game from a bigger perspective, and maybe cool down a bit. I promise you I have read your post, and I have understood it. I hope you will take your time to read and understand this comment. Have a great day.

I think that the way that the Lol screen is turned slightly, you sometimes don't hit the hitbox when you hit them in the head. I try to aim for the feet to be sure I get them :) But yeah sometimes I also get a spear on someone that clearly dodged it. Those are fun times :)

Silent Note (EUNE)
: Just want to give credit to Riot Support
This is a great positive post! :) I am glad that people remember to write the positive experiences they have with Riot!
: you decide your elo in a nutshell - matchmaking nonsense
Be careful with "generalizing" your gaming experience, and using temporal adverbs like always. Exaggerating like this is a known tactic in arguments to prove a point, and is called hyperbole. I advise you not to do so since this kind of argumentation can be easily shut down with a quick look at your match history. I can see multiple games where you have fed the enemy team, and not contributed to the victory. Does that mean you did "nothing but die" in this game? Of course not, you have just had a bad game. That is normal and can happen for everyone. By looking at the time stamp for your latest game, i can deduct that you made this post right after loosing. You went 0/5 in this game. Can it be that you are one of those people who "tilt"? If this is not the case, then i apologize for making the assumption. I think it is important to wait an hour or two before writing anything on the boards or in another group. You are upset about the loss and that is okay, but if you immediately put your angry words on a page, you will end up using "hyperbole", and in this case that is not favorable.
Fyrijou (EUW)
: You are correct, i wrote this after an encounter, but it‘s a little bit more complex than you think. Also, i had this issue with Yi for a LONG time but only decided now to write a discussion about it. In the game that it happened, i was Skarner jungle and building Tank items. And for the 1st 20 minutes, it was GREAT! My team consisted of Mordekaiser mid, Jinx and Neeko bot, Renekton top and me (Skarner) jungle. Like i said, everything went smoothly. I farmed the jungle, got the rift Herald, had a lot of succesful ganks and i even managed to give bot 4 - 5 kills in a row, to get them fed (which ironically included 2 gank attempts of Yi and both times we killed him before he reached us (my E stun, Neeko‘s stun and Jinx‘s stun to keep him in place). Hell, we were damn close of winning. But then, after like 22 minutes, Yi started to become A LOT stronger out of nowhere. We went into a teamfight and it seemed we would win it yet again. Yet, this time, we NEVER managed to stun Yi once and he kept on Q‘ing and everything and we couldn‘t outrun him since his ult nullifies slows. Seriously, before 22 minutes, he was 5/5, after the 22nd minute, he stacked up to 20/5. And like i said, i build Tank and i had 100 Armor on me and plenty of HP and to top it all off, my W which made me even tankier. Yet, within seconds, he shredded trough my ENTIRE build and i died. And just to say, my R was on cooldown. And sure, whilst Yi doesn‘t have any hard CC, he has his R, E, Q + cooldown reduction combo. And since his R‘s passive + Q‘s basic hit ability work perfectly, he kept on spamming Q and he made 5 hits in 1 second. So yeah, if you experienced the same thing as me, you would realize that Yi is not „fine“.
I have played this game for a long time, and I can assure you that I have encountered many Master Yi players in my games. A portion of those (especially during the funnel-strategy times) got very fed, some to the extent that they were nearly impossible to kill. I have gotten them on my team, and against me. Each champion in league of legends can get grossly ahead, and a big portion of champions would at first glance seem overpowered when they as a 10/0 after 8 minutes comes crashing down on you and one-shots you. Then we have champions like Master Yi, who do not need to get ahead early to be "op" in the late game. It is like Vayne, Twitch, and Jax. They all have huge dmg in the Late game. That is a part of their kit. When you go into a game against a Yi, you need to remember that you have to end before he gets to this point. He is so weak early, that this should be possible. That being said, Master Yi is, in my opinion, one of the easier late-game carries to deal with. Unlike Vayne and Twitch, he does not have stealth, and unlike Jax, he does not have tons of hp and an ability to dodge auto attacks. I would much rather play against a Yi than any of these champions. So to conclude on my comment. Of course, I have experienced the same as you. But even though Master Yi can seem overpowered in a game where he has ideal conditions (Game goes past 30 min, he was allowed to farm up, no hard cc on your team, etc.), he is not an overpowered champion. :) Have a great day.

: You're sh*tting on everyone that ever brought up any kind of criticism against Riot's matchmaking or their lack of community moderation by attacking them, and the language they use, and just suggesting they should leave if the game they spent so much money and time on has flaws that the responsible people refuse to acknowledge, much less fix. This, in a board full of Riot damage control brigade and fanbois. I've never seen a post with clearer begging for recognition and votes than this one.
Again, I believe you have misunderstood my comment. I am certainly not "shitting" on everyone that criticizes Riot, as you phrase it. I am simply suggesting that people are more careful with their use of temporal adverbs like "never" "always" and "everyone" like you just used. I have not suggested that if you are unhappy with the game, that you just leave. But it would be a fine idea. If you keep being unhappy with the game and do not like the changes or fixes that Riot adds to the game, then why play it? I am genuinely curious. If I stop enjoying the game, I would stop playing until I enjoy it again. LoL is a hobby, and hobbies are supposed to be fun :) To your last sentence, suggesting that I am "begging for recognition", I must refer you to this comment section. I have not seen a lot of fellow "fanbois" here, instead, I have been arguing with people like you, who misinterpret my post, and try to prove me wrong on the fact that Riot does good things. I hope my answer was fulfilling for you, and that you can see my real intentions with this post :) Have a great day.

: so, u are saying riot did good stuff based on? ur opinion so i don't get ur point many proplayers and normal players are begging riot games for team ranked. many players are flaming riot games for clash because not all players can play saturday after dinner for example) u know someone in the weekend want also to go out, why we can't play clash during wednesday for example? just give us a good queue for 5v5 (because as u said flex is a normal mode). and that's not my opinion, u just said it the nerf on drake is, real? they already nerfed them and they are speacking of nerf them even more. why? because they reduced drake hp...what's the problem with it? u can do a solo drake at level 4..jenius if u gonna show me 1 positive thing from riot games in all season 9..well gj -forced to reset ranked early season because ranked sistem was %%%%ed up -euw invaded by turkey players (if u get mmr in another server when transfering it ur mmr should be resetted) -diamond 3 playing with rank 1 (u can see it also from caps post on twitter) or maybe forg1ven (forg1ven will be easier because he lost his mind for how much bad soloq is and was) (that destroyed soloq high elo games) -map rotation? removed -events? removed (don't tell me play x number of game is an event) -balance team? it's that a joke? just look at akali, banned from 1 year, pantheon rework had 100% at worlds, irelia 100% ban rate till june when they changed her w, etc -prestige points....everyone still trying to understand why a 975 rp skin is better of a prestige skin(100+€) -bugs (let's not even speack about that)
I never said that what I feel was how everyone felt. That is exactly why I made this post. People think they speak for everyone when they say that "this" and "that" is bad or unbalanced. SOME people think that the dragon changes are good, SOME don't. And that is okay :) SOME pro players are begging for a team ranked, while others couldn't care less. I feel like we are running in circles here, man. I am not trying to prove you are wrong. I simply made this post to make people think about how they phrase their words. To have a little perspective.
Fyrijou (EUW)
: Master Yi desperately needs a rework or a huge nerf
Master Yi might seem like a god, and impossible to deal with, but I promise you that is not the case. He is a very squishy champion with no CC. Hard CC shuts him down, and his early game isn't something to brag about either. Try to make him fall behind early, as you mentioned he is extremely weak early game, and due to a slow clear, he can be counter jungled. He is weak against burst too. I would personally play Evelynn or Khazix into him. Strong early game champions that also have a good late game. Rammus could also work against him due to the nature of Rammus' kit. If I should guess i would imagine that you have recently played against a Yi who got fed, or who was allowed to farm until minute 20 and get items. Then you came to the boards to let off steam, and that is okay. But it is important to remember, that Yi is not unbeatable, and there is a reason so few people in high elo play him. He can be countered easily. Now I know that if you get to 45 min ingame and Yi gets his full build, he is going to hurt. But 4 out of 5 times, you can shut him down early with some simple invades. Be wary of his level 3 with red buff, since he can actually deal a lot of dmg there, and then just shut him down. Most if not all jungle got better ganks than him, so you can make sure all your lanes get ahead early before he can do anything. Master Yi might be able to 1v5 some games, but in a game where both mid and bot are fed? I don't think so.

: > The new exciting champion releases combined with the wonderful content they created during worlds, including casting, pre and post-game analysis and interviews with the players so. u find exciting what is not balanced? akali, diana, aphelios, etc tecnically u just like dmg and no sense things like akali w or move an ultimate to a lev 3 ability. or maybe a good champion like aphelios, but with insane dmg in all his kit > I also believe, unlike most people, that the dragon changes are wonderful and give a lot to the overall experience of playing League!:) someone is narrating about an elder drake (noone still saw it in a decent game, just because there is too much dmg on all champs and after 3 drakes the game is done) p.s. they already nerfed all the drakes because they realised is no sense > Flex queue is a less competitive ranked environment, where you can play with more than 1 of your friends :) It is not the same as soloq, and therefore it shouldn't be compared to it. Many people find normal games to be too casual, while not wanting to have a highly competitive environment that soloq gives. Flexq is in the middle of these 2 modes, and is a perfect fit for many :) so u are saying normal is terrible so they created flex. why just don't fix normal match making?
All your points are built on your own opinion, instead of facts. You have completely misunderstood my comment, and I would prefer to stop the argument here. You do not seem to want to change your mind no matter how much I argued against your statement that everything Riot does is wrong. Have a great evening :D

No problem man :) It is important for me that new players have a good first experience with ranked! :) It can be a fun and exciting way into the competitive part of LoL, but only if you make sure to be prepared! :D Good luck with the next season! :)

: "I am 100% sure that a part of the player base enjoys and wanted flex. I can also safely say that there was a huge amount of hype over Clash, so I also believe you are wrong on that." mmm, so flex is just played for how wanna test new champions. in challenger u can see players that are plat in soloq with more than 800 games (just because noone play that queue) but ehi it's fine ^^ clash is a thing just because they refuse to had team ranked to the game. why in the %%%% we can't play a serious queue in 5v5 all days but only in the weekend? "You say that Riot never did any good things. This is also a debatable statement. Riot has completely changed the way we look at MOBA games and Esports in general. They created a game that could be competitive to a completely different degree than previously seen. Yes, DOTA 2 has a lot of the same qualities" so u don't even know that riot copied the game from dota? are u joking on me or what? everyone knows it even rioters. u can see thousand of post about it. league is dota 2 but a better version on a graphic aspect why u even speack about csgo? it has nothing to do with league and dota > Riot as a company has done so many things right. I agree that there are bugs and things balance wise that could be done better, but I also believe that it is important to not let it overshadow the rest of their legacy. just say me. what they have done in particular in the last period (even if they copied also right now auto chess from dota?)
Flex queue is a less competitive ranked environment, where you can play with more than 1 of your friends :) It is not the same as soloq, and therefore it shouldn't be compared to it. Many people find normal games to be too casual, while not wanting to have a highly competitive environment that soloq gives. Flexq is in the middle of these 2 modes, and is a perfect fit for many :) I know that Riot has taken inspiration from Dota 2, and I am sorry if my comment made it seem like I did not. However, Riot has not made an exact copy of the game. Dota was one of the first big MOBA games out there, so it is clear that the games that followed would take inspiration from them. But over the years, Riot has made League of Legends into something else. They are not a copy of Dota, and if they ever were, they certainly aren't now. I can't deduce the last sentence you said, but I would imagine that you meant to ask me if I think Riot has done anything good in the last period. And I do. The new exciting champion releases combined with the wonderful content they created during worlds, including casting, pre and post-game analysis and interviews with the players. I also believe, unlike most people, that the dragon changes are wonderful and give a lot to the overall experience of playing League!:) Of course, I don't think that all that Riot does is perfect. I do not enjoy how little XP you get in the jungle now, and how much you get in mid or top. It should be more equal, to give all roles a chance to shine :)

: ranked
I personally went straight into ranked games, and boy! did I suck! I lost most of my Ranked games and got very demotivated. I then proceeded to play normals for a long period of time, until I started picking up ranked again. I then got a coach and paid him to teach me about the game. I was silver then and managed to get to Gold 5 with the help of the coach. In the next season, I managed to, without any coaching, get to Plat 2. Then Diamond in Season 8, where I still am today. I have probably spent over 3000 hours on lol, around 1000+ normal games, 1000+ ranked games + Arams, Dominion(when it was a game mode) and things like URF and Ascension. I started playing ranked right after hitting level 30, but then played around 200 more hours in Normal games when I found out I still had something to learn. I would say that you should start playing Ranked games when you feel like you understand the basics of the game. When you have found a role you enjoy playing and a champion pool you feel like you are decent with. It is important not to get the feeling that ranked is anxiety-inducing. It should always be a positive experience. Of course, it is okay to be nervous when first heading into your placement matches, but do not go into a depression if you lose your first game. Keep playing and improving! Good luck :)
: And then the whiteknights who defend Riot's a*s even though their matchmaking is obviously disgustingly flawed also come to the Boards and hope that their daily buttcleaning will get them a few likes from anonymous people.
I do not know where in my post you got the idea that I was hoping for likes. If anything I believe this post will get more dislikes than likes. As I said, the boards are mostly filled with players in need of a place to put angry words on a page and send them to the public. Seeing a post like this would not make them happy. I have not said that Riot is a perfect company, but rather that we need to be careful with using powerful words like "never" and "always", since it twists the reality. Riot is not a perfect company, nor a "disgustingly flawed" one.

: Diamond one-trick player here. I play mostly Bard and Nidalee, and even though through experience I can say that high-elo players are a bit more likely to follow up on the plays you make, it isn't always the case. If you have an ability like Zac E, Thresh hook+ult, Amumu ult or Bard ult, it is much more likely that they will follow. High AOE or CC abilities are like a huge neon sign to your teammates saying "GO IN IDIOTS" and most of the time they will listen. However, it is important to know that the right play is not the best play if you are alone. The best play is always the play you make with your team! :) Also, be wary of your teammates' cooldowns and hp. If you go in for the big teamfight, while your ADC has no flash and is at 50% hp, she will most likely not follow ;).
Also, pinging a couple of seconds before you make a play, or even writing in the chat "If I hit a -----, we should go in" would be beneficial. I often say to my teammates as Nidalee "If I hit a spear on the ADC, we should begin the fight." or as Bard "I will look for a 2 man ult. Let's engage when I hit it." Your calls will also be listened to more if you have performed well in a game. Your macro knowledge can still be high even though you are feeding, but people tend to follow the person who is doing good rather than the 0/10. It is just how people's minds work.

: Add chests in the shop
I do not really see your comparison that New players playing more for chests will make people lose more games. As a new player, you will be placed with people on your own level or smurfs. Playing against smurfs is annoying and can be a bad experience for the new player, but it will not be many levels before most people are new to the game. New players roughly get the same amount of chests as the average player, just because they play against people on their skill-level. The average bronze player also get roughly the same amount of chests in-game as the average Diamond player. They aren't playing against each other but against people of their own skill-level.

: LEAVE BUSTER!?
It is unfortunate when outside circumstances cause you to leave the game. I myself have gotten a black screen in loading screen, and had to restart my PC. It made them remake and i lost LP. Stuff like this happens, and Riot cannot give any "free-passes" on leaving a game. Intentional or unintentional doesn't matter, it will still result in the same punishment. It can seem unfair, but Riot has no way of checking if you really had a "Hospital emergency" or your house electricity was gone.

: "I think it all boils down to mindset. You can have bad luck for a game or two or even five. Just remember to not make a bad day of ranked grind overshadow all the good games, good players or good things Riot has done." it's easier to think to what riot could have done instead of what riot has done good -just a simple example, noone wanted flex q, noone wanted clash. just give back team ranked to players ^^ -champion bug. i will just tell 1 because his becoming a meme day by day. nunu got reworked in june 2018. do u know nunu has a minimum (that i know right now) of 12 bugs? only one champ, and noone of this got fixed in 1 year and an half, they are just increasing each patch ^^ - (not gonna type anything about balance team, because was always %%%%ed up since season 1, yeah i play since season 1 and still play it. but u can't say riot is in a good spot right now) why players keep play league of legends? because there isn't any free to play game like league, u can play with ur friends and the game is not hard. u can play with only 1 hand (yeah my friend has only 1 hand and he is able to play some champs like trinda/trundle, etc; i'm not joking about him playing with 1 hand, he is plat btw, gj to him) riot never did something good. league of legends---->copy from dota tft----->copy from dota auto chess (it was a custom game from dota that on twitch got more views of every game for at least 1 month and that's why everyone is creatign auto chess right now) card game--->magic+hs, just copy pasta this 2 (and yeah it is totaly sbalanced and everyone already critised it league for telephone----> U CAN DIRECTION ASHE ULT (kappa pride) rest of the game still have to see a gameplay...but yeah riot just copy pasta and hope it works
I am not going to comment on everything you said, but I will give a few replies to things you pointed out in your comment. You are using temporal adverbs like no one, always and never just like I mentioned in my post. I am 100% sure that a part of the player base enjoys and wanted flex. I can also safely say that there was a huge amount of hype over Clash, so I also believe you are wrong on that. You say that Riot never did any good things. This is also a debatable statement. Riot has completely changed the way we look at MOBA games and Esports in general. They created a game that could be competitive to a completely different degree than previously seen. Yes, DOTA 2 has a lot of the same qualities, Counter-Strike Global Offensive too, but the way Riot advertised League of Legends, educated casters and created a community of fans on the level of Soccer or Football, is something to be amazed about. Riot as a company has done so many things right. I agree that there are bugs and things balance wise that could be done better, but I also believe that it is important to not let it overshadow the rest of their legacy.

: I doubt people always have trolls, or never get their pick over autofill. They just remember all the times when they get a troll more than the times they dont
Yes, you are right about that. It is easier to remember the bad games than good games for some reason. When not getting trolls is the norm, people don't remember them. But when you get a troll, that suddenly falls out of the norm, and that sparks some kind of all shadowing negativity in their minds. Then the keyboard warriors go into the Boards and vomit all over their keyboard ;)

: Advice on champion powerspikes
I am a one-trick player, only playing Nidalee jungle and Bard support for the last 5 Ranked seasons. Snuck some Illaoi games in season 7, but that's about it for the diversity. While I haven't played the champions I face ingame, I still got a good idea of when to go in on them, and when to back the %%%% off. I think that if you play a lot and for a long time, you will get a feeling for every champion. You will know not to engage on the Jayce top lane when he gets to level 3 first, that Twitch even though he is a late-game monster, actually got a pretty mean level 2 gank, and therefore you have to be wary of him for the first few minutes. Then there are the obvious power spikes like levels 2, 3 and 6. If your enemy gets these levels before you, it is best to stay back unless you are confident in your ability to kill or outtrade them. Item power spikes are also a very real thing, and here we again have some obvious ones. A full item is always a power spike, but especially the first full item gives the champion a lot. Items like Ludens Echo, I.E, Black Cleaver or Trinity Force are all items that got passive that gives your champion and immediate rise in power. If you wanna go all down the rabbit hole with these power spikes, I suggest you go into a practice tool and see what the top 5 most popular champions in your preferred role's full combo is at level 2, 3, 6, 11, 16, 18 and so on. Maybe also give them their core items to check what that does to their fighting-potential. I hope my comment helped :) It is very vague, but this is what I do. As a one-trick, I rely more on my knowledge of my own champion, rather than the knowledge of the enemy.

We just have to have the right mindset. > Riot admitted they reworked aatrox on way they liked it(like riven), and knew players wont enjoy it. If strenght of our mindset is to nerf vayne a bit after 9 years then we are powerless. If win/lose is still only way to gain lp skill is meaningless, just carry or be carried 1v9 Sure, not gonna stop you from playing league, even tho i tilt a lot and got 9 permbans still its fun sometimes ^^ But trust me after you spend 3-4 years playing you slowly start to realize how unbalaced it is, since you get better with time as well and can understand it. Hf ^^
I cannot believe that Riot would purposely make something they knew the player base wouldn't enjoy. If you could send a link where this statement is written, I would like to see it. I have played LoL since season 4, and the more I learn about the game, the more balanced I find the experience. Your comment is only proof of the statement I made almost a year ago. "...LoL is the game we make it. We just have to have the right mindset." You have chosen a toxic mindset and that has given you 9 permabans. Be more positive! :) Have a nice day.

: Tilt champ, or why i just h8 lol
I have 2 things to say. Your English does not seem to be good, so I will try to make it simple 1. I advise you to die less in your games. You have an average of 9.8 deaths in your latest 10 games, and an average of 6 deaths overall. If you get that down to 3 or 4, I promise that you will climb more. 2. I can see that when you yourself play Master Yi, he is not totally broken, but actually rather weak. Maybe he is not as imbalanced as you think? Usually, people who complain about "broken" champions, just don't know how to play against them. Have a great day :)

: Well, honestly speaking, I have stopped playing this shitty game and i did try to play and see if there is any improvement in the game recently. Sad to know the issues are not properly addressed / taken care off. Looks like you guys don't give a sht in this boards. I will keep playing this game. You know why? Wait till the end and hear the news: "RIOT SHUTS DOWN LEAGUE OF LEGENDS". That will be my happiest day! The amount of Karma you guys (especially DEVELOPERS of RANKED) stack will so bad, i would like to see the end! Wish it happens soon!
You have commented on a month old post. I do not really understand why. I can only imagine that you lost a game, and decided to come back to this post to direct your anger at something. People like you have been here many times before. People who aren't satisfied with the way the game works, and think they have all the answers. I remember a post in Season 4 where a youtube with a decent amount of subscribers predicted that the game would not last more than a Season more. Well, here we are. 5 years later. I myself hope that we can get 5 years more. What most people forget is, that a game this big and this complex, is hard to balance. No matter what there will be flaws and holes. We need to remember how many parts of this game that is functioning perfectly, and that we don't know the whole story as players. I am 100% sure that Riot will do everything they can to make the best game possible. Everything else does not make sense. I hope my answer could be some sort of conclusion on this post since you clearly did not think my post 1 month ago was :) Have a great day.
