: You know how easy it is to just make it so the further you get away from that amazing 50% wr, the more chances you'll have to meet more and more dogsh*t apes in your team. Like, the amount of garbage players I've met in my solo queue games, I even questioned them if they can breathe on their own.
What defines dogshit apes? And how come these people do not drop into Iron 4? If they are that bad, they will surely keep decaying.
: Forced 50% winrate, you mods are still trying to make sure that the Riot crap about not rigged and badly design matchmaking is still fine, right?
How do they force it though? I will believe the conspiracy theory when there's a reason to. I don't just make up things because they conveniently fit my agenda, or spread hate when I have absolutely no basis for my statements.

: Hello! I believe that most of the time specially in promo stage I really match with bad teammates. It's my 3rd try to get to silver. But I am suspicious because it just feels weird. I play ranked normally, get to promos and just match with bad teammates with a blink of an eye 3 times. Seems really weird to me. (not that i am a god of league, not even close to diamond or plat (yet) ) but I'm not initing or trolling. Why I match with such? {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}} {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
>I believe that most of the time specially in promo stage I really match with bad teammates. There are a few people who have a similar feeling. Some even go as far as claiming that Riot intentionally puts them into bad matchups to keep them in a lower rank than they deserve. At that stage, that would be called a conspiracy theory. --- The teammate that fed in your game has a 58% percent winrate. They won two games just before your match, and have no history of recent trolling. So IF the conspiracy theories are true, someone needs to explain how Riot **knows** that this player is going to int? There are no signs of that in their history. Do you think Riot contacted the player and told them _"hey, we'll give you free RP if you int your next game"_? That doesn't sound too plausible, right? ---- Most of the time, there's no way for Riot to predict what a player is going to do. Inters and flamers aren't a few percent of players who ALWAYS play like that. They are a bigger percentage of players who very rarely do stuff like this. ---- It truly is just unlucky that things turned out this way... Our brains are programmed for pattern recognition, it is very easy to think of all the times you failed promos and get the feeling that you always get the trolls and bad players in exactly those games. This isn't much more than your brain playing tricks on you. There is nothing special going on during promos, your brain is the only thing that considers these games special.
1von (EUNE)
: Can you answer me this specific question. Please?
>So my question is why before PROMO I didn't have baboons but when I have to rank up I match with the worst possible apes? Pure chance. You got unlucky. Or do you suspect it might have another reason?
Wolity (EUW)
: Its always like that. If someone in their game goes 0-5 that means that person is inting. If the person complaing about inters goes 0-20 , hes not inting just having bad game or bad team. ^^ But yeah people using the term inting for everything. If you miss cs you inting. If you get outsmited , you inting. If you miss ability , you inting.
>But yeah people using the term inting for everything. If you miss cs you inting. If you get outsmited , you inting. If you miss ability , you inting. That seems to be true, yeah. And I don't really know whether people just misuse the word "inting", or if they **genuinely** believe that the person they're complaining about is **intentionally** ruining their game. It scares me that many people **instantly** assume malintent. I see it so much in my games. - You die a few times -> must be inting - You don't help a teammate because you're too low/oom -> must be trolling - Your game crashes -> must be ragequit / afk This kind of attitude makes me sad. The most recent example would be the latter one, my graphics drivers crashed and I was thrown out of an ARAM for 2 minutes or so. My teammate didn't take a second to think before writing "Caitlyn ragequit" and later on "mad cuz bad". I... didn't know what to say. --- And it's the same when people here complain about getting trolls and inters in "almost every game"... If they believe people troll that much, their perception is just way off. Assuming malintent like that is a great way to ruin every last bit of fun for yourself.
Gjovani (EUW)
: Why are inters not geting punished?
>Why are inters not geting punished? Because from what it sounds like, the "inters" you talk about aren't actually breaking the rules. There's an important difference between **feeding** and **inting**! I highly suggest you get that right, otherwise, it's going to create a lot of confusion. --- Riot is not going to punish people for making mistakes and playing bad. Everyone makes mistakes, including you and me. It would suck pretty hard to get banned for that, when you already had a bad game.

: You dont even know what youre talking about so I am not even gonna bother explaining
Isn't that the perfect use-case for explaining something though? I feel like you're gonna have a hard time explaining, that's why it's easier not to bother ^^
: I wish that one day any of you rioters gets to enjoy the average games we have. and then stay friendly and nice throughout all of them. I challenge any of you, idc who.
>I challenge any of you, idc who. Challenge accepted and... done?! As Snarky said, we play the same games you do. We get the same frustrating moments, and see similar teammates in our games. Why do you believe we have different experiences than you? You seem to believe it's impossible to stay friendly when faced with the situation you are in. --- I get the frustration, I've gotten unreasonably mad at the game and I have flamed and blamed my teammates in the past. It was stupid though. I realised that flaming is only feeding ignorance. It's a result of cognitive dissonance, and it's far from rational behavior. ---- I learned to control myself and understand my emotions in the game. That is the sole reason I can stay calm and nice and don't rage anymore. It's not because I somehow only get amazing teammates, or play on a secret Riot server where only nice people exist.

: Unbanned after 14 day ban
Hey, it's good to hear that you've learned something from that suspension. It takes some guts to realise that maybe your mentality or approach to the game was a bit off. Many people aren't able to realise that, and instead flame even more... ---- It's easy to develop an unhealthy mentality in League. People who flame and blame others clearly aren't having fun, they often ruin it for themselves by getting mad as soon as something minor goes wrong. I get why they do it, but it's an extremely harmful mentality. Mostly for themselves. ---- Hopefully you can be a bit more relaxed in your games from now on. GL HF
RegvM (EUW)
: and how do i deserve it, considering it usually take 3 games of flaming to get a 25 chat ban at least, this is 1 game of not even mild flaming. Shouting at your team or telling them how to play isn't flaming, it's trying to win
Threatening to ignore their lane, or giving up before the game is close to being over is pretty bad though... You intentionally put your entire team at a disadvantage only because you got upset at botlane? That's not okay man. --- And right now, you are complaining about only having one game of "mild" toxicity, instead of three. I know it sucks to be confronted with mistakes like that, but you have to admit, this is not the chatlog of a teammate you want to see in your games... I know I wouldn't. Considering that your next punishment would be a 14-day ban, I highly recommend you try to understand why the things you said weren't cool. Ultimately, I hope you can be a bit more calm in tense situations. You'll find that many times, it's possible to turn around a game even when things look bad. It is crucial to keep a cool head, and not shout "ff15" as soon as things don't go your way. And honestly, I think that's what makes the game fun. I want a challenge in my matches... If I only played the easy stomps, I might as well play bot games. That's my take on this, and it's why I personally don't like it when people give up in games.
: My 1st penta of the season :)
Nice one, especially considering your team wasn't _that_ far ahead when you got the penta. Hope there will be many more like this season.

: Violation: Posting in the Incorrect Board
You're right, that can be quite difficult. ^^ Let's see if we can fix this though... You're shown as lvl 14 now, that should be enough to post everywhere, right?
: You know what is actually extremely funny and ironic? When I started a topic where I said that CertainlyT single-handed ruined the balance because of his abominations he released (extremely problematic champions, stupidly complex kits that will never be balanced or fun to play against), my topic got closed, because it doesn't add anything to the community. Now, here's this guy, caps lock enabled, went full ree mode, gave no reasoning why he thinks that the matchmaking is bad, yet not only his topic is open, but he actually got upvoted as well. After this, dear playerbase and moderator team, tell me exactly the logic behind your Boards ban/topic closure system, and the reasoning behind upvoted and downvotes.
Hi again, I hope I gave a reasonable explanation why we decided to lock your thread, but I can elaborate a bit to make things clear. We generally do not take actions against posts that are merely "venting". Even if it's unconstructive and doesn't provide much value, we do not want to enforce the idea that negative feedback is censored here. Deleting the post of a player who is already frustrated only provokes this. Of course this does not mean ANY venting post is tolerated. But as OP said themselves, they got tilted and let off some steam. --- You post was similar in some sense. We had to think about what to do with your thread for a while. In the end, we decided to go for a middle ground between leaving it be and deleting it. We want to still keep it public information **why** we think threads like this aren't okay. You went on more than just a little rant. You specifically targeted one person, insulting them and putting them in a very bad light. All of this had absolutely no basis. You did point out a scapegoat that players could get riled up on. That is quite a difference from this thread, they're both not exactly constructive, but we had to take a stand against the untruthful and harmful point your thread was making. --- I know you probably still don't like our decision, but I hope you can at least understand the difference between your post and this one. --- **EDIT: Oh, almost forgot that part.** >and the reasoning behind upvoted and downvotes. I'm not sure how you expect us to explain the up- and downvotes, as this is obviously not within our control. For this thread though, it's getting upvotes because it gives people a common ground to hate on something while being as vague as possible. It's so easy to complain about things when you do not care to dive into the topic at all. Like how you can find pretty much any random person and talk with them about how terribly wrong the government is working, or about how unfair the 1% live. It's just so easy to complain when you don't to point out what exactly is wrong, or even how it might be improved.
: Ok riot what's with my placements??
Greetings. Placements are never intended to put you at the same point on the ladder where you left off. It is supposed to put you quite a bit lower than your previous rank. After all, ranked is where you're supposed to fight your way up the ladder. And you have to prove your worth in every season. Everything is working as intended, it has always worked this way. --- You have an entire season to go back and beyond your last rank. With your MMR, you'll quickly find yourself back at a rank you deserve. No need to worry ^^
: Would you swap roles with a troll?
I can imagine a similar situation, and I might've even been in one. Lux is my main champion, and toplane is my least favorite role. If someone who was originally assigned top were to steal my role and demand midlane, I might still play Lux toplane. In many cases, it is better to play what you're familiar with, rather than try to force something that's supposed to be better, but you have no experience on. That's why I almost always pick Lux, regardless of counter matchups. ---- But at the end of the day it really depends on the specific situation. Don't let your ego play a role, let the guy troll, he might still turn out to actually try and win. Playing Pyke was probably alright, but if you were a more experienced ADC, going for that would be better than playing support at any cost.
: Yes I did. And even If I played all of the other 9 and won all of them I would end up probably in G2. That's what pisses me off.
That would be a perfectly reasonable starting point though. After all, you have the entire season to climb.

: i used to have a really high winrate as i skyrocket from silver to plat 4, then came the egotistic players
Or maybe your rank actually just caught up with your skill level. What makes you think other people suddenly changed? You are better than silver players, which is why you won so much. You aren't much better than platinum players, which is why you balance at a 50% win rate. Isn't that a logical explanation? --- Balancing out at 50% is not a bad thing, it's naturally going to happen when you reach the rank you deserve.

Lags or having nervs into this game , directly affects your gameplay performance ,because you no longer can stay menthality focused to hit your skills ,when someone judge you ,when someone is toxic , when someone talks about your mastery points on playing a champion and much more... , the human error in this game is likely 90% of the game outcome , if your team don't have the capacity to focus , and to don't be toxic to each other , and to hit skills with accuracy ,you more likely to loss from human errors... , is not funny for anyone to loss from that !. Is my own opinnion ,that only 10 % of the games can be lost because of team composition , or just smurfing players being much more stronger than every oponnent. In the 90% entry afk players/bad players/troll/grief/toxicity/ giving up players who step to no longer give the game a try... etc... , most of them from human errors get themself to loss . Is too much for someone to control on his own the fate of his games , if some players are part of what i sayd upper , is extremly hard to take a win ,even if you deserve and you are a good player and your oponnents ain't great at all ,forget to mention position errors, build errors , objectives and map team work which all are also human errors ,that's why justify the fact you as individual player you have 0 control over the outcome of your game!. Maybe Riot should ask new players about difficulty to learn the game ,to master it to good plays , ranks they touch , and frustrating moments they got into , and what is them own opinnion . I one , if i would be now to play this game for first time , i would just pass it , because is too much to master ,too much to learn ,and even if i would procced to be good at it ... , there is always something which would make my level of gameplay feel 0 ,because everyone can attempt to ruin games and still be in the game. All heroes who been fun to play disappeard in them long way ... , i mean darius ultimate reset to when ever you want to use was quitly cool , look now , it basicaly same , but it doesn't anymore give you that confidence to use it when ever you see someone low hp , like you use to use pyke R ... , i honestly loved darius early years , to be honest difference between his old R and his current R isn't that big , because if you turn in a fight works quit same... , but honestly the older R was more funny to play , because was giving you the perks of always being the guy with the axe finishing your low health targets . Old irelia was more balanced than the newest one. Now you can't anymore balance new heroes ... , because senna broken , aphelios broken somehow , but still you can't change anything almost to him etc... , most of heroes will tend to be more broken than others , and there is that feel that nothing is really in balance , but Riot claims to be... , even if zed can be too much overpowered.. ,and is banned constantly ... , he still see the daylight and no nerfs.
Not everyone will take the time to jump in a discussion, or leave a comment to disagree. The general votes on your thread should reflect the public opinion though, I'd wager not many people are willing to agree to the fundamental point of your thread.
Kronborg4 (EUW)
: Provisionals
Your rank will increase for each game you win during your provisional matches. It is completely normal to start out lower, and in the case of the first game, FAR LOWER than your previous rank. --- Wins will quickly boost you up the ladder though. Don't worry about it, these games determine where you start the season, not where you end it. Getting back to Gold should not be very with your MMR, provided you still play that way. ^^ Good luck & Have fun.
: Congratulations on Aphelios banrate!
Hey, I'd like to inform you that the moderation team decided to lock this thread. **You are welcome to criticize Riot, the game, or even specific actions of others!** However, we require you to be civil and refrain from personal attacks. --- Note that no decision for League of Legends is made by a single person.

This could be said about any sport. But, when i go play football with random ppl, one team always loses, but we all go and have a beer afterwards. In league, however, atfer the game evryone flame each other.
That is certainly true, but I have a few thoughts why this might not be an entirely fair comparison. Here are my ideas: > 1) The Online Disinhibition effect. >[Wikipedia Link](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Online_disinhibition_effect) >Communication on the internet is inherently different, the inability to see or hear other people, as well as the anonymity and importantly the lack of consequences affects people's behavior in a negative way. > You could say our brains do not always fully grasp that we're talking to other humans. >Road rage is a very similar phenomenon, although it is based in real-life, there is a disinhibition on the road which often leads to extraordinarily "toxic" behavior. --- >2) People you play with. In your example, you will rarely play with total strangers, they might be acquaintances, people you've met once or twice before, or a friend of a friend that you're just being introduced to. >This introduces them as a part of your social group. Imagine you're a serious flamer. If you play League with a buddy, and they invite a friend they like. You will most likely not flame them the same way you would a random teammate. >It'd be stupid! We humans do not want to risk disrupting a social group and potentially turning our buddy against us. >I've played many great matches of custom 5v5 games with friends, and we even drank _while_ playing, that's hard to do when playing Football. --- >3) The Nature of the game. >This, together with no. 1 is an important point in my opinion! >Not every competitive online game is equally prone to toxicity. If you look at Battlefield or Call of Duty for example, you also have two teams competing for an objective in a rather stressful environment _(considering the explosions, bullets and such)_, but you would hardly take the time to flame one of your 31 teammates for being bad. >What they do in those games barely affects you at all. And even if it does, you respawn, and get a fresh chance. >**League is a totally different experience!** >In League, it is easy to have eyes on your 4 teammates and see what they are doing (wrong). If your lane partner dies, or you even just spot a fed enemy when pressing TAB, it will affect you - big time! >Basically, snowballing exists. >When playing football, it does not matter if your teammate misses a shot, or fails to block the ball. Your future performance is not decreased to the same effect. Mistakes don't snowball. ---- >4) Physical activity >A point specific to your example, being physically active surely plays its part in reducing your stress level, and making the mood of everyone less heated. Sitting in front of a desk cannot get you that same effect. --- That would be my attempt to explain why you don't see the same problem when playing a match of football irl.
: Games should be fun not stressfully prostrated
Well, League is a very competitive game. If you play it the way it's supposed to be played, one team is going to lose, and ideally it's going to be a very intense fight until a winner emerges. --- Fighting against your opponent, be it through direct confrontations or strategy **is** what makes the game fun. When you manage to outsmart your opponent, or when you barely escape, or when you hit a perfect Lux ultimate that just destroys the enemy team. That's fun! But since the enemy is trying to do the exact same thing, it becomes inherently stressful. ---- I believe you cannot have one without the other. If you care about winning, destroying the enemy Nexus is going to feel great, but losing is going to stress you out, there's no way around that.
: low elo (silver) gold is also low elo and so is platinum
Don't you think that's kind of a pretentious thing to say? It feels like players always like to claim the League right below theirs is "low elo". You have to have some sort of basis to that claim though. --- What even is low elo? The word "low" implies that there's also a middle and high elo. There are 9 Leagues in total, which means platinum would be right in the middle, not considering Divisions of course. This already falsifies your claim, but simply dividing the Leagues into low,mid and high doesn't make much sense... --- Looking at the rank distribution according to [this site](https://www.esportstales.com/league-of-legends/rank-distribution-percentage-of-players-by-tier), if you are a platinum player, you are within the top 19% of best players. Getting into Diamond, you are within the top 3,66% That is not low! If you even make it into Gold, you are better than most other players! --- Now of course there is still a huge difference between a Diamond 4 and a Diamond 1 player, but being within the top few percent of players must be considered pretty high up there, don't you think?

You seem to expect your teammates to perform neutral to good, but as I said, they're put at an insanely unfair disadvantage to begin with. > > Believe me, your teammates had a worse experience than you, go easy on them :/ The "Skill" Difference matters little when they are massively ahead and can literally steamroll you without much effort. It's not about me being better or not than their team, because, lets be honest, If their team gets massively ahead out of my team, even if im Challenger and the best player in the world, I will not be able to do anything in that situation. As an example, A Bronze player who is 10/0 Will Beat a Challenger player who is 0/10. Do you know what i mean? Sometimes it doesn't really matter if you are better than your enemy. This was a Diamond MMR game. Yet my team members were behaving like Grain bags and feeding themselves off. All of the enemy team members were Strong. None was a minion. Unlike in my team. Anivia posed a bigger threat to me than the rest of them combined because of her CC and Teamfight control. What was i expecting? Atleast 1 Neutral teammember that actually wanted to win.
>A Bronze player who is 10/0 Will Beat a Challenger player who is 0/10. Do you know what i mean? I'd argue that's not true, actually. It obviously depends on many variables, and League is not a 1v1, but I think a challenger player could still do alright if you set him up against a 10/0 Bronze. --- I'm not saying you could've done much different to change the outcome of this game... But Faker could've. >Sometimes it doesn't really matter if you are better than your enemy. This leaves the impression that you think you were better than your enemy in this specific case. I wouldn't necessarily say that's true. Beating your lane does not guarantee a win, that's true. And it shouldn't, League is a team game after all. You were obviously better than your teammates, yeah, but as I said, that's a pretty useless comparison. All that serves is to make it easier for you to shift blame.
: A throwback to better times, when "toxicity"/"toxic" wasn't so completely...mainstream...in language
I feel like you're disregarding the core concept of all this. The idea behind all the player behavior systems is actually pretty simple: I don't want teammates that tell me to kill myself whenever I miss a skillshot, flame, rage or blame when a fight doesn't go our way, or disrespect my teammates and enemies. That's why I report them. Many players see it the same way, and Riot luckily takes action aginst this "toxic" behavior. --- That's a very simple concept. I feel like you're blowing it out of proportion by assuming some socio-political agenda here... As I said, many players want unsportsmanlike players to be banned. Where exactly is the problem?
: Stop banning ppl for chats
>This is how it is in most of the online games. Just because most companies might do it, doesn't mean it's the best way. Riot essentially had permanent chat restrictions in the past. It was not a system they wanted to keep, and I can see why. --- It's merely a band aid solution. Toxic players will still get emotional and filled with an unjustified and very unconstructive amount of rage. A chat restriction stops them from chatting, but there's still an enraged player in front of the monitor, who will most likely show his displeasure in some other unhealthy way.

Dying , Respawning, Running back to lane, And Dying again as you arrive the lane 4 or 5 times in a row seems very tilting. Botlane being 0/10 or somewhere close to that by 6 mins is really demotivating. Honestly i was considering going afk since that was going to be shitfest. But then I Decided to play it out to Show people how impossible it is to win some games.
Well, I don't think you needed to show that to anyone, as I said, we know not every game is winnable. It was still honorable of you to stick around. The problem is that this was not a balanced match. And you have to admit, that you are partly to blame for this inbalance. You really can't be smurfing and then complain about how bad your teammates are. You put them at in a bad spot to begin with. --- When you're smurfing, an 11/0/1 K/D/A might simply not be enough to carry. You call it a 1v9... But please remember that don't have to be better than your teammates. You have to be better than your enemy if you want to win. Sounds obvious, I know, but this game was simply not a 5v5. It was a battle of smurfs. It was you vs Lucian, the rest were minions. (Granted, Twitch did well too) Both of you crushed the rest of the players, but in the end, his lead was stronger. --- Smurfing kinda does this to matches. You seem to expect your teammates to perform neutral to good, but as I said, they're put at an insanely unfair disadvantage to begin with. Believe me, your teammates had a worse experience than you, go easy on them :/
: If you are good you can Carry 1v9. UNLESS...
If you somehow managed to win this game, that 19/1 Lucian would be the one making the exact same post right now... Someone _has_ to lose, and in this case, in a pretty shitty way. Unfortunately, not every game is winnable. Don't think anyone would claim that.

: Deprived of my free speech on the boards
Well, there really isn't much effort let alone constructive criticism in that post. Using words generally helps with creating constructive discussions, so I recommend you to really repost it, with a more thorough explanation of what you're saying. And please note that the deleted post was over on the [NA Boards](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/), you're on the EU Boards now. Moderation is handled by two entirely seperate teams. Just so thing don't get confusing ^^
: my friend has a post called "IMPORTANT QUESTION" and all she put was "shugi shugi shugi, GNAR"
[This thread](https://boards.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bug-reports-eu/wIprogd9-dtfyhjrt) also exists :D To clarify: Of course we generally _do_ want to delete spammy and nonsensical threads, but occasionally gems like the ones you mentioned arise. And when the community starts to enjoy them and have some _harmless_ fun with it, it can no longer be considered nonsense. Luckily, those posts are only gonna be fun once in a while, so it naturally limits the spam that stays on here.
: That's some next level horsesh*t. The worst player of the game has more impact in the game than the best. No matter how hard you try, no matter how good you are, all it takes is one trash player, and your game is already ruined. Care to show **YOUR** opinion, and not pick sides just because of that fancy title of yours?
>No matter how hard you try, no matter how good you are, all it takes is one trash player, and your game is already ruined. Well then why get mad over a 2/0 Ashe if her lead doesn't matter? She might have a "trash player" that ruins it for her, no? --- >Care to show YOUR opinion, and not pick sides just because of that fancy title of yours? I already gave my opinion, what do you mean with "pick sides", and what does my title have to do with this?

Don't talk when you don't know, he flamed it and mod named "Declined" responded and said he will take care of this, then I checked his profile couple of days later, he isnt a mod, not even using boards anymore. Ask Declined himself if you don't believe me.
>Don't talk when you don't know Yes... PLEASE! Check my other reply.
: Its not actually nonsense, I just don't want to name & shame so im saying it as myself. There is actually one guy that is whiteknighting riot on every single post and is a boards mod, then he flamed one guy I said it was not nice and that one mod also with red coloured name "Declined" responded and said I see we will take care about this and then, couple of days, not a single reply or post from that mod, I checked his profile and he is just an ordinary user, not even using boards anymore, mod removed, now I see after couple of months he got back his mod and came back to whiteknighting 24/7 :)
I know exactly who you're talking about, but it's still nonsense. Declined is a Wrenchman, he's not a Rioter. I don't know if he ever said _"we will take care about this"_, but even if he did, he certainly did not mean another Volunteer's behavior. --- As a Wrenchman, Declined does not just kick anyone, nor did he start any discussion within the program. I would know, because I'd be involved in that process too... --- >checked his profile and he is just an ordinary user Check my profile, there's no title displayed there, while I'm clearly still an Emissary. That's just how the Boards display it. >couple of days, not a single reply or post from that mod We actually take breaks sometimes! Shocking, I know... ^^
: This will be season of trolls
>If your support trolled even once, enemy ADC gets 2-0, while you get 0-1, you can close client. Game is done. There is no meaning in playing after that. Well, if you instantly give up as soon as you face the slightest disadvantage, then of course you're gonna lose. But that's on you to be honest. Giving your enemy a 2/0 advantage is nothing you can't recover from...
: Trolls
I do have a feeling you might be very loose with the word "troll". Going 1/10 or 0/8 is surely a horrendously bad game, but that doesn't mean their trolling. Stupid mistakes, like diving into turrets and feeding happen, that doesn't mean people are trolling. If you see "trolls" in almost every game like you claim, then you must have a very weird understanding of that word. --- Trolling is purely defined by a player's intention. And you shouldn't necessarily assume malintent, just because someone is playing bad. You should try to mitigate the damage and assist them. Blaming them and complaining about trolls isn't going to win you games.
: I don't know why does this took so long.. my acc is locked now. and im w8 for the ticket to be aswerd….
Okay, weird that it took that long. Keep an eye on the ticket, hope your issue gets resolved soon. Good luck!
: My Reflections - Thoughts - Feelings on League and where it's heading. (For Riot Employees/Staff)
Hi ILilCookie, I think I agree with you to some extend here... --- It is certainly true that Riot keeps pumping out very unusual champion kits and new abilities. Especially lately, with the back to back release of Senna, Aphelios and very soon Sett, there's **A LOT **to take in. However, I'm pretty sure that Riot will slow down again for a bit. Maybe those champions just happened to get finished very close to each other, or Riot just wanted to make a bang for the 10th season and anniversary of League, which is obviously a big deal. _(creating champs is still a creative process with much trial and error, so champ releases can't be scheduled super strictly)_ --- These new champs can surely be confusing, with Aphelios obviously being the epitome of this. Nobody knows what he does or how anything works there... But it just takes some getting used to. The point where I disagree with you is that I don't think it necessarily hurts the game. I don't like some of the new champs, but even though their kits might be complicated, I wouldn't say that's a bad thing. --- I see SO many people complaining about new champions. And the complaint that new kits are "overloaded" has been the same for the last 5 years. People always complain about the new things they don't understand. I feel like Senna {{champion:235}} is a great example. With her release, so many people complained about her kit, complaining that she's op and completely ruining the game. When in reality, she was pretty perfectly balanced. Her winrate has been very balanced across the board, people were simply scared of this new support who can heal and do damage at the same time. ---- Personally, I'd love champion releases to be something much more monumental. Imo it should only happen like once or twice a season! Announce those champs with a big bang, maybe reveal them at the World Finals ceremony. I think that'd be awesome. But then again, Riot probably has to keep the pace of releases a bit higher than that, to keep the game fresh. So while I can completely understand your frustration, and I too still have trouble dealing with some of the new champs, it's mostly a matter of learning how to play (against) them. I don't think it's objectively a bad thing for the game.
: I've made a ticket, but just trying to find some understanding here as that will take a while..
I've never seen that before, yeah... It'd be interesting too see what the PS has to say. Good luck, hope you get to keep your name. O_O

: Forgot my E-Mail
Hi lasgce. This is going to be a bit tricky... There's no way to see the full e-mail associated with your account, since the e-mail is a very valuable login credential. It is very important to keep your e-mail safe too, not just your name and password, since whoever has access to the mail, has the ability to change the password and e-mail quite easily. --- If you want to get your account back, you'll have to reach out to the Player Support and go through the steps of [account recovery.](https://support-leagueoflegends.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/360037644973) You will probably be asked multiple questions to confirm that you are the orignal creator of the account. Hopefully you'll remember enough of them for the PS agent to verify you as the owner. Let me know if you have any questions, good luck! {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}}
: Kinda funny how you werent on boards when you got removed from being a moderator on boards after flaming that guy. And now, you got it back, and here we are again, defending riot at its all cost.
Hansiman is one of the most veteran Volunteers in the program. He never got suspended, nor did he flame anyone. Volunteers have to behave to a standard that's higher than the one set for normal players. --- If Hansiman were to flame someone, he'd have to be removed for a good while... And even **IF** he'd join the program again, why would he instantly get a senior title?
: So my boards mod was removed...
Interesting to know, welcome to the team! Should I give you your title now? ^^
: Torpedo. I got a question for you. Why don't you as a mod, look into his LoLreplay directly via the client and tell if he's telling the truth or not? He might as well be banned for something else other than language.
Becauase I, as a mod, am way too lazy for that :P Also, even if he was inting or going afk, it shouldn't trigger this message, so I would still be just as confused. I don't wanna smite people here, I wanna find out what happened too.
: Most senseless ban ever
What this Ahri did was not okay. Off-meta picks are fine, but you should have the decency to inform your team about it, and not just shove them into a shitty situation like this. She seems to be shifitng blame and trolling, which is certainly not allowed. --- But I think she has a point. >she said stop flaming people or you will get trolling people This is true. Do you think that your behavior helped to calm her down and made her play better? You started harassing her and kept screaming for reports. If you think she's breaking the rules, just report her! But you were repeating this phrase I don't know how many times and continuously harassed her. It is true that you might not have started the flame, but all you did this match was pour oil into it.. That is the reason we believe you are not completely innocent here.
: We're stuck in practice mode ( reconnect ), may you fix that pls ? thanks.
>may you fix that pls? thanks. I would love to do so, but I'm afraid I do not know nearly enough about this issue to do anything about. Neither do I work for Riot... Sorry ^^
: Wait... Ranked is actually STILL down????????????
No, everything seems to be fine. There's no status message anymore, and I seem to be able to queue up. Did that just change in the few minutes since you posted? --- > the euw servers particularly lackluster and riot are too cheap to upgrade them or what? I doubt it's as easy as downloading a bit more RAM... Servers are a complex issue that neither you nor I should claim to understand. ^^
: I'm gonna say this nicely. Shut the %%%% up with your unneeded bot responses. He needs actual help.
Welp, you failed. That isn't nice at all... And I don't know where your hatred stems from. There's nothing that makes this comment a "bot response". This is a very specific issue, which is why I'm helping people understand and resolve the issue. And ontop of that, I'd really like to know what this is about myself. I did redirect him to the support, that's all the help we can provide. ---- Yelling _"duh, Riot is suck"_ wouldn't help either, you know.
: Matchmaking decides our wins and loses You can probablay hit master as an mediocre player who doesnt care how many time he wasted on this game
>You can probablay hit master as an mediocre player who doesnt care how many time he wasted on this game Oh, that sounds interesting. What are the steps I would have to follow in order to achieve master rank?
