You should have more faith in Riot. They are not some small indie company. If they want to they can do it one way or another.

: Honor Level 0 - Chat closed -> Honor Level 4 - All Chat Activated
Sounds good. I would go even further and disable ranked queues for people under honor level 2. But much greater problem are people with toxic gameplay that int, troll, rage quit and get away with it all the time.

: > Sure they had flaws but instead of leaving us with nothing they should have fixed them or introduced something else that would serve that purpose. They can't be fixed without having a rioter sit in every single chat channel in the game looking for things that shouldn't be said or suspect looking links, there is no need for riot to introduce anything when there are numerous free 3rd party tools they don't have to maintain or fix that do the job perfectly fine > You are right, not everything has to be done within client but it would be so much easier and better to have a tool in client that lets us connect with others especially in the events like this. And I don't see a reason why it shouldn't be done. Because maintaining and policing a freeform tool like that just isn't worth it to riot or the community, they won't add queues for each combination either so they have no viable options, they already provide forums for users and as mentioned there are numerous external sources that do work perfectly fine, one of which is officially provided by riot, these here boards, if the client was a fullscreen application you might have a marginally more compelling argument but seeing as its not there is no reason you can't have a browser open in the background, it all just comes down to player laziness
Its not like those don't exist, many games have them so it can work for sure. Maybe Riot has other priorities but it would be a welcomed tool by the community. Boards are completely useless for finding people. I personally tried and found exactly zero people. Discord is fine but I wish they at least provided some note or something that would say "go find people on our discord channel". I for example didn't know about it until i randomly read about it somewhere.

: We had them, nobody really used them and it just made it even easier for people to spam phishing links to people so the feature was scrapped, hell even i had a bot logged in to the old chat for stuff and if i can do it then anyone can :P Not everything has to be done within the client and these days it isn't

Maybe you should think about if you are the problem. Because from what I can see here your attitude isn't really the best. ikr, its not like there aren't multiple public dicords and these very forums and active subreddits for finding a group to join with the same goal, the issue is the OP doesn't want to do any of the legwork involved :P
My suggestion is that they make public chats or something else that will enable us to find people that want to do the same mission we do right here in the client. Why would we have to go outside of the game to find people to play with?

: Dear Event Team!!
It would all be fine if we only had **a way to search for people that want to complete the same missions** we do, invite them to party and have a blast. We used to have this in the old client. My suggestion for Riot is to **bring back public chats** if only for the duration of events like this one or make another way for people that want to do the same missions to find each other. The way it is now it crates a problem when people with different missions get in the same game. Some of the missions are hard enough already and this is just making them even harder to do and not in a good way. If we disregard this issue (witch we can't) the event is a blast! The pve is awesome, augments are fun, missions are challenging, the rewards are satisfying! Keep doing events like this more and more frequent just fix this one issue that's ruining otherwise great experience. {{sticker:katarina-love}}

: Riot wants your money for christmas!
Honestly I was hoping for some good deals and discounts on skins like personal shop and maybe some special hextech chests that are worth spending rp on. None of the offers caught my attention. I was looking forward to the new winter map. It really looks amazing. Can you imagine my disappointment when I read that It's only available on normal draft, blind and co-ops? I'm on EUNE - there is no normal draft here and no matter how awesome winter map is it is not worth playing blind for it. Legend of the poro king is an okey game mode and the new one seems more interesting then before so I will give it a try. Overall I am very disappointed in snowdown 2016. {{sticker:zombie-nunu-tears}}

: go play flex
This is what I do now that normal draft is gone. I don't give a damn about my flex rank so I can treat it as a normal draft but I can understand that there are players that want to play but don't want to get ranked. Gaining and losing lp only adds pressure to their games and make them tilt more then they would like to. On EUNE there is no alternative for guys like that as the only other option is blind pick which is usually a total disaster.
Johs107 (EUNE)
: People are now consistantly treating Ranked Flex as normal draft on EUNE
Agreed. I am one of those that treat ranked flex as normal draft. I play with my friends, try new champs, builds, practice champs i'm not confident with. I still try to win the game but i'm more focused on learning and having fun with friends or solo. Is it weird that I treat "ranked" queue like this? Yeah, it kindda is. Do I have a choice? Nope. At least there is one thing better about flex compared to draft - it's queue time, it's much shorter (2-3 min) then what normal draft queue time used to be (at times up to 10 min and more).
SeekerK (EUNE)
: Free Skin Contest nr 29
The top 3 champs are Fiora, Katarina and Kennen. Fiora is challenging to play and rewarding when I play her right. Katarina is so much fun after the rework with all the mobility and damage. Kennen is easy to play, easy to lane and can carry games. My primary is mid and secondary is top.

: Why is the Normal Draft pick not on EUNE?
Here's what info I could gather about the removal of normal draft: 1. They removed it from servers which had small % of players playing it resulting in long queue times and unfair matches. 2. They didn't want rank flex to compete with normal draft for players because the two queues are similar. 3. They want to eventually make a new normal queue for every region that would replace the existing ones. It would be a merged version of draft and blind pick. They are not working on it now nor do they have any plans to start working on it any time soon. 4. They are not considering to bring back normal draft to any region they removed it from. I'm totally opposed of removal of normal draft queue but sadly it doesn't matter what I and many other players want as the decision has been made and it looks like there is no hope left that they will change their mind about it.

: want to play with friends 2 ranked tiers away from you - go f**k yourself I could live with fact, that flex queue will be some second class ranked queue on eune, with removing any practice enviroment for ranked it simply will be, but then they can easily open the possibility to play with friends on this one in eune, it would be the best of bad solutions for me..
Playing with friends 2 tiers away is still a problem and I don't see a solution for that one. For example I'm gold 1 atm in flex and a few of my friends are around silver 3 so if I get promoted to plat I wont be able to play with them till they hit gold. It sucks 'cause this makes me not want to promote which is totally screwed up way to feel about "ranked".
: ... So is that it? Draft pick is gone, you are forcing me to play ranked.
Hey! I'm just going to copy-paste my comment from a similar tread... :) It sucks so much that Riot removed draft and I'm very mad about it myself. My suggestion is to use rank flex as normal draft. That's what I do. This means that if you: want to learn a new champ - play flex want to learn new position - play flex want to try new builds - play flex want to relax and play the role that you like - play flex want to... you get the point :) Blind pick is a DISASTER! We can't do any of the things above in blind pick. It's a terrible game mode made for new players that don't know much about the game so they can play whatever and wherever. If someone said to me that we will be left without normal draft in season 7 I would be rude and called them insane. I would argue that it doesn't make any sense and that Riot knows better. Jokes on me. Anyway true ranked will be Solo/Duo queue, like always and ranked flex will be there to practice for Solo/Duo or just have fun. This season, when someone asks you: "Hey mate! Do you play ranked? What division are you in?" they're gonna mean solo queue and not flex, I garentee it. {{champion:86}}

That will keep queues healthy in terms of balance/wait time... For regions other than NA/EUW/BR of course :) Blind pick (flaws and all) is one of the most played modes - on top of that normal draft has the requirements of minimum champion pool and certain levels - which would mean people with few champions or low level literally couldn't play. To make the level of changes needed to make this viable would be pretty big. Ultimately, we would like to take the best aspects of both normal queues (position preference from Normal Draft and less hardcore gameplay/speedy champion select from Blind Pick) into a single queue. That's definitely an avenue we're looking into as it solves a lot of problems with blind while keeping much of the benefits - but there's a lot of work involved in making that a reality, so we have no solid timeline on when that will happen (or if this is even how the end product would look)

I am pretty sure that on a server which has roughly 1.6 million players that small is actually not small at all. Why didn't you think ahead? Why did you first remove draft before making a merged version of draft and blind? And even tho you did not give us a better normal queue before removing draft, you are saying that creating a new normal queue is not even one of your top priorities and that we wont get it anytime soon. Am I wrong? What is your opinion on a request from players to give them free transfer to EUW so we can keep playing draft with our friends?

: Thanks for removing ability to play together with friends (EUNE)
Exactly! I HATE BLIND PICK! I suspect that they removed Normal Draft in favor of Dynamic Queue or as it's now called Ranked Flex so that people that used to play Normal Draft would switch to Ranked Flex in order for that queue to have enough players. But guess what: **I can't play Ranked Flex with my friends** because of division difference!!! **Lets us chose what we want to play and don't force things on us anymore PLEASE!!!**

**We NEED an OFFICIAL STATEMENT on this matter!** I do not understand why it is bannable (if it is at all, i hear people talking they got banned for it but I don't know what to believe when there is no official response) to change your language to Japanese or Korean or any other language. And this is VERY IMPORTANT to many players like myself who would like to have their favorite game in a language that is not supported in their client. Show us how much you care for your players and give us an official response on this matter!
: WHERE. ARE. THE. HOLIDAY. SKINS??? >8-(
I don't understand why are there no Harrowing skins in the shop already.
: The harrowing is forgotten
Yes the story is awesome, but why can't we get skins in the shop already? I'm not a fan of new skins but I would like older ones (underworld tf one of the best skins even today).

It would be interesting. I hope we get more information about lore and relations between more champions. There are so many cool theories on the web but I have no idea what's true and what's false.

: [Suggestion] ACHIEVEMENTS THAT GIVE IP/RP
Great idea! Not sure about some of the examples you gave but the idea is very good. Some kind of achievement system would be very interesting. But in my opinion the achievements need to be made in a way that won't affect the gameplay in any way. {{champion:74}}
