: i am salty because of my ban and i want the opinion of the communtity
Greetings Rasiisar. It seems like you're trying to diminish the gravity of what you said based on the circumstances of that game. Maybe it all made sense when you played the game... They insulted you pretty harshly, so you reacted highly emotional. That's perfectly understandable... But that doesn't mean it's okay. ---- Look at this from a rational perspective: You told someone to kill themselves, and you were pretty elaborate while doing so. This is arguably much worse than swearing with the word "cancer". **You reacted to toxicity by being even more toxic!** Do you believe that was helpful in any way? Just because other people break the rules, doesn't mean they no longer apply to you, of course having toxic players in your games sucks, but what you did showed a lot of weakness, and definitely can't happen again! --- You have to keep in mind that this is your final warning. If you keep being (even just slightly) toxic, you can get permanently banned very soon. Let's not let that happen... Good luck!

: Good old days when i was a true warrior of justice
Right on! Voting in the old Tribunal was just a great feeling. Players knew that they could have an impact, and it was a pretty intuitive system. Even though the IFS is objectively better at doing the job, I think there's lack of clarity. There are way too many misconceptions about it, and most people have no clue how it works at all. --- I'm pretty disappointed Riot stopped the development on the new voting Tribunal. I think the Tribunal and the IFS would really compliment each other... {{sticker:cass-cry}}

: Seasons Ending.
Hey, Season 7 already ended more than a month ago, on November 7th. The phase we're currently in is called the "pre-season", this where we get to familiarise ourselves with the major changes we'll have next year (mainly runes reforged), and where Riot gets to iron out the biggest wrinkles in the game balance. --- Season 8 will officially start on** January 16th**, this is when the Ranked ladder will be reset and everyone can play their placements again.
: Feelsbadman, The skin is on sale now, When do we get the ward skin?
They will probably go out on Monday or Tuesday.
: What why?that's so ridiculous I finally made myself to honor 1 means that I'm reformed cuz in not toxic anymore and riot blocks me from playing? Bad move riot
It's good to hear that you're not toxic anymore, but reforming is going to take some time. If you were toxic enough for your honor level to drop, you're not just going to be considered sportsmanlike a few days later... It takes time before you can be (somewhat) trusted not to flame. --- Honor level 1 is still pretty low, you'll have to keep going in order to proof that you can be sportsmanlike.
: Question about competitive
**at least** honor level 2, yup.
: Only 10 people in EUW will have this ward skin?
No! ^^ But 10 people are gonna get it from us in this contest :)
: wow my friend said "So lucky" Only picked 4 people for this ward?
That was the original plan, but seeing how many people participate here, we're going to increase the total number of winners to 10!
: My Email is flooded with spam emails from all the free stuff i have tried to win! hopefully i win big this time xD
Well, don't worry, we're not gonna spam you or anything xD You've got nothing to lose, so good luck!
: Gotta complain about the mission...
>This might as well be the first mission batch I'm going to miss/skip. That's exactly the point though, don't you know what the tournament ticket capsule (prize for the mission you're complaining about) is used for? If you hate playing ranked, clash most likely isn't right for you either.
: Not sure what you mean by feedback, but let me give my five cents on this anyway. I think with events that are related to special holidays (especially halloween) it might be wise to start a bit earlier, because the latter parts and the conclusion of this event were kind of overshadowed by the fact that christmas/snowdown is right around the corner and the volunteers' own christmas event has already begun. For multipart events like this, you might also want to release a rough schedule (I know there can always be delays and that you guys have all got other things going on too) of when you plan to enter/conclude the individual stages. Lastly, I love the fact that you're giving out rewards like that, but if you care about increasing participation in an event like this, you might want to mention that somewhere when you announce the event (although it is possible you did and I just didnt notice, in which case, my bad). That said, huge shoutout to u volunteers for going to all this trouble and even making these events in the first place. Looking forward to the next one! {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}} (Please do something where you can submit writing though, I couldn't draw a proper stickfigure even if my life depended on it ;P )
>Not sure what you mean by feedback, but let me give my five cents on this anyway. Exactly that, you left some very useful feedback here ^^ --- > it might be wise to start a bit earlier, because the latter parts and the conclusion of this event were kind of overshadowed by the fact that christmas/snowdown is right around the corner and the volunteers' own christmas event has already begun. I agree with that one, this contest was pretty long. It's difficult to find the sweet spot when there are multiple contests tied to one event ^^ But yeah, starting earlier might be better than finishing late. --- >For multipart events like this, you might also want to release a rough schedule (I know there can always be delays and that you guys have all got other things going on too) of when you plan to enter/conclude the individual stages. I think this is generally not a big issue, most of our events have clear deadlines, and only consist of one stage anyway. This one was different though, it was a first try, and we had no clue how long it would take for the submissions to come in ^^ I guess having a set date for the winner announcements would be nice for you guys, we'll try to do that in the future. ---- >Lastly, I love the fact that you're giving out rewards like that, but if you care about increasing participation in an event like this, you might want to mention that somewhere when you announce the event We're aware of this one actually. A good chunk of the planning is always related to rewards and the budget. Sometimes we reveal the prizes, sometimes we just say that prizes exist, and sometimes we keep it secret. We intentionally didn't mention the rewards because announcing them beforehand is a double-edged sword. While it obviously increases participation and motivation, some people will try to trick us in order to win the rewards. They could manipulate votes, use lots of smurfs or even steal things like fanart to participate in our art contests. Whether we announce the rewards mostly depends on how prone our contest is to abuse. ---- >Looking forward to the next one! (Please do something where you can submit writing though, I couldn't draw a proper stickfigure even if my life depended on it ;P ) Yup, amongst other things, your writing skills will be helpful for the upcoming Christmas event ;)
: Btw, I just noticed that in the last sentence of the 2nd paragraph, you changed a word. It now says: "Instead, as the noxian campaign across Ionia dragged on, his *fire* grew ever more fierce." instead of the original "... , his *ire* grew ever more fierce." Whilst I greatly appreciate you fixing my grammar errors, that particular instance was not one of them ;P "ire" is a synonym for anger/rage and I used that word on purpose. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
Oh wow, that one's on me, sorry ^^ I assumed you were still referring to the "_agonzing fire of wrath_" you mentioned before :P I fixed it :)
: Ok I give up trying to find my comment but was there always snow in here? or was that recent? {{sticker:sg-lux-2}}
Haha, you didn't miss it earlier, no worries. It mysteriously started snowing in here just yesterday :)
: So I get the ward giveaway, but what volunteer event is being held? And how do I participate if I want to?
The Christmas event will consist of multiple contests and raffles. We've got lots of sweet rewards, so it's probably worth to check out ^^ Keep an eye on the Boards during the next week or so, the thread will be pinned to the top of the Boards ;)

Why ruin everybody else's fun?
The fact that muting exists is not an excuse to break the rules. Muting allows players to stop the exposure to further toxic behavior, but that only really works after someone was toxic. Just because bulletproof vests exist doesn't mean you can just shoot people. --- Insulting strangers with such language is generally not perceived as fun. If people want to talk like this, they will have to do so in a 5-player premade group or in a private chat.

: Will I ever be able to get honor again?
Hey there, Absolutely! You will regain your honor level, but it might take a while... Unfortunately this process is not very transparent, you simply have to be patient and make sure that you are definitely not displaying any negative/toxic behavior anymore. I'm sure you're not a bad person, so just try to focus on the positive sides of your behavior. Be respectful to everyone in the game, even if they aren't, and just try to have fun with others! --- Your honor level will eventually come back, but it's certainly easier if you show consistent sportsmanlike behavior!

Greetings SimkeKing. You certainly weren't banned for "nothing". The chatlogs clearly show that you were quite toxic and insulted your teammates using homophobic slurs.

: First of all, congratulations to Divine Sword for winning the first stage! As for my submission I tried to keep things as short as possible, since this is already a hell lot of reading people need to do, if they wanna see every concept before voting. Should anything be really unclear, just poke me and I will try to clarify as good as I can. Also I was naughty and came up with a name already, just to provide more flow while reading. Of course it can be changed at any time. Let's get started then, shall we? Name Suggestion - **Boros** Boros uses no resources for casting his spells. **Passive - Versatile Fighter** Boros alternates between striking with his bracer and his claw with each attack. Attacking with his bracer gives him a boost in movementspeed for a brief moment or until he attacks with his claw. Attacking with his claw applies a 'Scar' stack to the attacked enemie. At 2 stacks of 'Scar' the mark is consumed dealing bonus damage based on the enemies maximum health and applies grevious wounds. After leaving combat Boros' next attack will be with his bracer. --- **Q-Skill - Double Slash** Boros strikes around him twice in quick succession, dealing damage to all enemies hit. He temporaly gains armor and magic-resistance for each enemy champion hit with his bracer and slows enemies hit by his claw for a short duration. --- **W-Skill - Full Force Swipe** Boros puts all his power into his next basic attack, damaging all enemies in a small area around his target and gainig a bonus effect based on the hand he strikes with. **Bracer:** Gains a shield, that decreases over time. **Claw:** Knocks back all enemies hit. --- **E-Skill - Slam and Slice** Boros leaps a short distance towards target enemy and slams them into the ground, briefly stunning them and dealing damage. After performing his slam Boros strikes his target with 2 quick attacks. --- **R-Skill - Reptilian Rage** Boros enrages for the next few seconds by stomping all nearby enemies into the ground, stunning them and dealing physical damage to them. While enraged Boros grows in size and strikes with both his claw and bracer for each attack. Boros can also use Reptile Rage a second time while being in rage to perform a long dash, carrying all nearby enemies with him to his destination. As always, I wish all of you a good time with tinkering around Frankenstein's Champion!

: Boros' life began in a dark cavern deep beneath the streets of Noxus. He remembered not the man he used to be before the experiments twisted his body and warped his mind, and neither did he care. Half man, half dragon, he had been created for but one purpose: unquestioningly serve the will of Noxus. And as his makers had intended, Boros did not know doubt, fear or mercy. All he felt was a burning rage coursing through his body in scalding waves every waking moment. In this however, lay their downfall. Driven by this maddening anger, he killed the magicians who created him, their spells glancing off his enchanted bracer without leaving so much as a scratch while his claws tore out their throats. The cave was already awash with their blood when for the first time he met someone who was his match in strength. Clad in armor of silver and black, a red cape flowing from his back, the warrior's giant axe met Boros' claws strike for strike. In the end, his opponent's greater experience gave him the edge and Boros was bested. He was brought into the noxian arenas, where countless battles to the death shaped him into a fearsome warrior. Promised the opportunity to one day quell the vengefulness in his heart in true war, Boros did as he was told, until at last he was deemed ready for deployment. With the first ship leaving the harbors of Noxus, he was brought to Ionia, where he finally got to unleash his full power. And just as anticipated, he became the ultimate addition to the noxian war machine. Nothing could stand against the wrath of his claws, as he tore through his enemies' ranks. Entire armies were decimated at his hand, men and women alike, killed indiscriminately in a neverending orgy of violence and slaughter. Yet no amount of blood spilled would quench the agonzing fire of wrath consuming his soul. Instead, as the noxian campaign across Ionia dragged on, his ire grew ever more fierce. His anger's target however, began to shift. He continued his callous butchery across battlefield after battlefield, yet with each empty kill he felt himself resent noxus more and more. They had promised him peace, a respite from this agony of rage tormenting him. And yet he had been given nothing but death and despair. The campaign was nearing its end, when in the aftermath of a great battle he became separated from the rest of the troops. It was then that while trying to rejoin the noxian forces, he ventured unwittingly into a remote garden filled with snow lillies of a white so pure it made snow seem grey in comparison. He didn't know what it was at the time, yet something enthralled him about that garden, so he decided to stay for a while and look at these flowers. Soon he noticed that there was more to them than had seemed at first. They began to drink his memories and feast on his recollection. He let it happen, for while he did not resent what he had done, neither did he value any of it enough to see a reason to hold on to it. However, as they devoured more and more of them, the memories went back earlier and earlier in his life, until they arrived at the day of his first awakening. It was at that moment, that the earliest part of his new life was consumed, that memories of his old existence came flooding back into him, memories of a peaceful life on the slopes of the Ironspike mountains, of a time when he had had a family, before it was all erased by Noxus. And for the first time, his rage ebbed and sadness overcame him. He knew not how long he wept, but when he rose, the flowers had inexplicably retreated from him and allowed him to leave the garden freely. As he left the strange place, Boros' rage had returned, yet it was now mixed with a flurry of other emotions. Casting his eyes up to the stars twinkling above, he knew what he had to do to quench his anger: Destroy Noxus.

Rioter Comments
: Is this ban justified?
>I will honestly say that in my first ban I did deserve that because I was very toxic that game, but the second one was a bit harsh in my opinion? You used exactly the same homophobic slurs as you did in your previous punishment, did you not realise that? I'm afraid this is a very clear case, your behavior was extremely toxic, and there is absolutely no tolerance for the things you said. --- I'm honestly not sure if you are even aware of what you were writing back there. We can't help you with this, you clearly violated the rules, and you can't get rid of this punishment.
: Will we be able to purchase it afterwards or win it with the hextech crafting later? (it's just so adorable i wonder which riot employee(s) had that very good idea)
Sure, the ward is getting released like any normal one, you can buy or craft it. We just build our little event around this as soon as we saw it ^_^
: That ain't really helping me..' Edit: Cause I don't if the most expensive in my closest store in the best, or not. I don't really know too much about computers, but I want to learn how to build, sicne it's my dream job to achieve the ability to make costum pcs
Fair enough, you should still approach this from a slightly different angle, **especially** if you want to become more knowledgeable about this stuff. Looking for "the best" card out there isn't going to benefit you. If a 700€ card let's you max out everything you need, spending twice as much will give you nearly no improvements. Even if you don't care about the money (which you should, anyone you can do cool stuff with a few hundred bucks), overbuilding your computer is not the "professional" approach, and making senseless purchases is never a great idea ^^
: Best Graphic Card for League of Legend?
Well, if that's the case, you can literally just get the most expensive one on the market and you're all set. The very best performance will have one of the biggest pricetags.
: I would appreaciate it. I do not think I have ever wrote to Riot Support, I tried to log in in my account, it turned out that it's permabanned ( I was at the university and my brother was playing from it) I saw whats going on I just wanna try to return my account.
It seems like you've already submitted 2 tickets today. Those will be handled, generally within 1-3 days, so just be patient for now. You haven't been banned or anything, so I'm not quite sure why it doesn't work for you right now.

The Player Support can revoke your possibility to submit tickets if you abuse this right... Spamming them, bumping your ticket, as well as being disrespectful and insulting can result in you getting "banned" from submitting any more requests. I have no idea if that's the case here, but I'm sure you know whether you've done anything like the examples I mentioned above. --- Maybe it's just a problem with their site after all... If you really don't know what's going on, I can find out whether they've restricted your access or not.

: I am truly disappointed in the "community" skin contest winners. These are skins that i wouldn't even buy for 290RP. I feel like many good concepts where over looked. Many people put in more effort to create actual concepts that is to the quality of riots current skin production. For example: Pharaoh Kayn. Which mind you was directly under Headless Garen. The creator of the Pharaoh Kayn concept has professional level artistic skills + detailed description + feasible implementation in-game. How ever Headless Garen, a skin drawn in what looks like ms paint, NO description AT ALL, and does not match riots recent production quality. But of course Headless Garen wins. Not to mention the other two are just plain text. And Fairy Tale Gragas? Really? If Star Guardian Urgot is not a skin then Fairy Tale Gragas shouldn't either. The winners are seemingly picked at random.

So if you join a contest with expectations other than winning then you are either very unconfident or don't understand the idea of a contest. Maybe the goal of this "contest" is just for fun? Well then its not really a contest. Instead call it a "challenge" or some other word. "our contests are supposed to be light-hearted and **fun**!" Biscuit Bite put in al lot of effort into this contest. Apparently **too much** so. Well then he really did waste is time. "You've made a great entry, but there's a very simple reason you didn't win... You didn't fulfill the requirements -> rules." I don't know what rules he didn't fulfill and I don't care. He deserves some level of recognition. TORPEDOSHEEP, thank you for this lesson. I have learned that this community is just as bad as people say. Just in a deferent way. Toxicity is nothing compared to this. I have never been more disappointed in the League community than I am now, after seeing the winners.
>I don't know what rules he didn't fulfill and I don't care. That's a very long comment you left here, but at the end of the day it all boils down to this. Maybe you don't care about the rules we set, but we certainly do. They certainly did not put "too much" effort into their concept, it's always great to see high quality fanart, and as long as all rules are met, the most skillful participants will win... > He deserves some level of recognition. They got some recognition, people saw the concept and upvoted it. You're even here trying to stand for them and their work, that's a lot of recognition. Unfortunately, they just aren't eligible for the prize that they strived for, so there's nothing we can do really. --- Getting mad and reflecting this on the community for some reason is pretty strange to me. We don't benefit from these contests, we do them because they're fun, and because people clearly love getting some free swag. If you don't win, sure you can be disappointed or sad, but literally getting mad at us is a little over-the-top in my opinion. ---- I can't really take much from your comment, as there's not much we could've done or wanted to do different here to solve your guys' frustration... _So what would you've liked us to do?_

Greetings Runex. Of course we all encounter games like the ones you described, and it's normal that you get frustrated because it obviously sucks when other people ruin your games. How you handle those situations is often a matter of your attitude. You have to go back and think rationally, because at the end of the day, whatever happens in that game does not matter at all. This single match will have absolutely no value in a year, a month, or even a week from now. You will have forgotten about it very fast, so why all the rage? --- If you want to insult people and retaliate, you're just giving in to your own ego. At the end of the day, insulting them isn't going to help you at all, in fact, it will almost always makes things worse and less enjoyable for everyone! ---- You agreed on following the rules of this game, and just because others are breaking them doesn't mean you can do the same. Mute and ignore those people, do NOT react to their trolling, nothing you say or do is going to make you win that "argument". The best thing to do is not to feed the troll, and be the more mature player. --- I highly suggest you have a look at this. It highlights a point I brought up earlier, and it has personally helped me a lot back when I used to get upset about games a lot more ^^ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVtmV0FzW_0
: in which case i will ask again, how is this not a viable way to detect bots? oh look, that IP that is related to that address that has a history of creating bot accounts has just created 50 new accounts, but lets not do anything about it and assume those 50 accounts are genuine........
I wouldn't be so sure that bot accounts are even created on the same IP. VPNs can probably make recognizing these accounts a lot harder. Besides, banning accounts based on assumptions would be a little risky. --- It's difficult for us to make assumptions as to why Riot can or can't use IPs like you suggested. I guess we both don't have a lot of knowledge about this subject.
: when you say 'trace location' what do you mean?
: funny you should say this, i was told by another 'green' on the boards that the reason RIOT dont IP ban bots is because there is 'no such thing as a static IP' anymore, and that IP addresses are CONSTANTLY changing, how can IP be 'the most useful indicator' in this instance?
IPs can still be used to trace locations though :)

: Still nothing?
Huh? We've finished this contest a while ago. Here's the [winner announcement](https://boards.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/forum-games-contests-en/Zx35f9kQ-halloween-skin-contest-winners) :)
: and what if they play from asia through their european hardware? :D :D some guys do that.. it might be lagparty.. but you dont have to install 10000x games again
Hmm, I don't know of all these possibilities, but I'm sure Riot can accurately track everything they need ^^

Of course, but they don't login from Asia, and 5 minutes later from some place in Europe ^^ _Humans can't teleport._
: Let us talk about how V Sync works You're at 75Hz refresh rate, but now you're only getting 50FPS, 33% slower than the refresh rate. That means every time the monitor updates the screen, the video card draws 2/3 of the next frame. So lets track how this works. The monitor just refreshed, and frame 1 is copied into the frame buffer. 2/3 of frame 2 gets drawn in the back buffer, and the monitor refreshes again. It grabs frame 1 from the frame buffer for the first time. Now the video card finishes the last third of frame 2, but it has to wait, because it can't update until right after a refresh. The monitor refreshes, grabbing frame 1 the second time, and frame 2 is put in the frame buffer. The video card draws 2/3 of frame 3 in the back buffer, and a refresh happens, grabbing frame 2 for the first time. The last third of frame 3 is draw, and again we must wait for the refresh, and when it happens, frame 2 is grabbed for the second time, and frame 3 is copied in. We went through 4 refresh cycles but only 2 frames were drawn. At a refresh rate of 75Hz, that means we'll see 37.5FPS. That's noticeably less than 50FPS which the video card is capable of. This happens because the video card is forced to waste time after finishing a frame in the back buffer as it can't copy it out and it has nowhere else to draw frames. Essentially this means that with double-buffered VSync, the framerate can only be equal to a discrete set of values equal to Refresh / N where N is some positive integer. That means if you're talking about 60Hz refresh rate, the only framerates you can get are 60, 30, 20, 15, 12, 10, etc etc. You can see the big gap between 60 and 30 there. Any framerate between 60 and 30 your video card would normally put out would get dropped to 30. Now maybe you can see why people loathe it. Let's go back to the original example. You're playing your favorite game at 75Hz refresh and 100FPS. You turn VSync on, and the game limits you to 75FPS. No problem, right? Fixed the tearing issue, it looks better. You get to an area that's particularly graphically intensive, an area that would drop your FPS down to about 60 without VSync. Now your card cannot do the 75FPS it was doing before, and since VSync is on, it has to do the next highest one on the list, which is 37.5FPS. So now your game which was running at 75FPS just halved it's framerate to 37.5 instantly. Whether or not you find 37.5FPS smooth doesn't change the fact that the framerate just cut in half suddenly, which you would notice. This is what people hate about it.
Great explanation. To get rid of (most of the) screen tearing without dropping all the way to 30fps, shouldn't simply capping the fps at 60 do the trick?
: How does Riot know when someone is account sharing?
>how they can tell whether I gave my account to someone else or I just moved somewhere else and just played on a different pc and ip? What Rismosch said it's true, but the most useful indicator is still the IP. Of course traveling or moving can't get you banned, but when players teleport hundreds of kilometers, and suddenly login from a different IP a lot, it gets pretty obvious. --- Also, most players get themselves banned by not knowing that account sharing is forbidden. They might casually mention it in the chat or a support ticket :P
: Hey hey hey, am I in? :D

: Permantly banned for no big reason? or not? RIOT nobrainers?
Greetings. You might have a misunderstanding about how the punishment system works. There are 4 levels of punishments: - 10 Game Chat Restriction - 25 Game Chat Restriction - 14-day Ban - Permanent Ban Players generally get the Chat Restrictions on their first offense, but if they continue to misbehave, the next higher punishment tier will be used, because they still refused to change their behavior. In cases of extreme toxicity, they usually start out at the 14-day ban. --- The 14-day ban is your **final warning**. It's your last chance to improve your behavior, and at this stage even a small violation can result in a permanent ban. You are not allowed to flame, even if what you're saying is "not that bad"... If you can't change you will get permanently banned, even for small offenses.

: my freind got me banned pls help me
Greetings. As the others already pointed out, sharing your account is against the rules, and can result in a permaban in itself. You broke the rules the moment you gave another person access to the account, so I'm afraid you're fully responsible for this...
