Normal games are for fun, practice and trying new things. Ranked is for playing very seriously, but by your logic people should tryhard in normal games, and if that's the case, where should they play if they want to have fun? I completely disagree with this statement. Where they should practice? There's a "practice mode" in this game for a reason, so no more excuses. Saying that winning doesn't matter is plain wrong since the very moment they've added win-dependant drop (key fragments). You play multiplayer game? You're trying to win. That's it.
You can't practice against bots and dummies, they'll never be as good as an actual player. Also, winning SHOULD be their goal, but if they should be able to choose the route they want to take to that goal.

: Is something wrong with platinum division?
From what I heard plat's basically the division between the actually good players and the mediocre/bad ones, so when the two face each other, nothing good can happen.

My current main is Kha'Zix, I think he seems very simple when you are ~~getting one-shot~~ playing against him, but he actually has a lot of depth to his kit. I'm not just talking about the obvious evolutions, but his reset, outplay potential with ult and much more. I want to try out Jhin, I think he has the best personality and one of the most fun kits in the game. I've wanted to buy him since he came out, but somehow I never got around to it.

: Greetings. Aren't these keystones used in different situations? "Courage of the colossus" only kicks in when hitting an enemy champion with a "stun, taunt, snare, or knock up". Not every tanky champion will benefit from this. I'd still say "Bond of Stone" is a better choice if you're going for a tanky support character, because you're increasing the sustain of both you, and your ADC. Remember that Bond of Stone only interacts with the closest ally, not everyone around you, so the amount of extra damage you take in team fights isn't going to be as huge as you think it is.
I mostly agree with you, but to be fair, most tanks have some sort of hard cc, even supports: Braum (P, R), Alistar (Everything except R), Thresh (Q I think), Blitz (Q, E).

In the top lane I'd definetely recommend {{item:3340}} , as a support you should get {{item:2049}} and {{item:3341}} . In the jungle, it depends on who you are playing. {{item:3364}} for assassins, {{item:3341}} or {{item:3341}} if you have green smite. Otherwise, pick whichever you feel like you need.

{{champion:121}} I've been a Kha'Zix main for most of my League "carrier" and seeing the changes to him made me want to focus on another champ, but when I finally got to play more of the 'new' Kha I realized that he wasn't the champion I wanted to play, but he became so much more fun. From walking through the enemy's back line like you own the whole Rift, or counter jungling a Lee Sin who would previously swallow you without much effort feels so fun, but it also scares me because you can already see the nerf hammer coming. {{champion:122}} Darius is the kind of champion that makes you feel bad about playing him. Go top, watch as someone trying out one of the new assassins thinks he can 1v1 you, then destroy him over and over again until the mid game comes when you can do the same... except now you are making their whole team cry. I feel like both Darius and all juggernaut type champions just become stronger when a squishy focused meta appears, so it's just great to abuse them as much as you can. {{champion:5}} The first time I played Xin I just dismissed him as a simple, boring on-hit champion. I was so wrong. He is probably one of the most fun champions for me, just going in, knocking everyone away from their carry and then locking them down and murdering them with three auto-attacks feels so satisfying. That last sentence probably made me sound like a psychopath, but oh well... My primary role is jungle, secondary is top.
: Because in EUW and NA there is a vast variety of players playing draft pick,so they can afford to keep the draft pick mode.
Of course, do you also believe that Riot doesn't want to enforce a meta that they like?

Nidalee's spear actually has a smaller hitbox I think, when only the side of the spear touches the enemy, it often doesn't "hit"
: Is it completly outruled to add item sets?
Championify does a pretty good job at showing the items that are usable on your champion, just include both LFV and Champion.gg sets and you will see everything that you want to use.
: Seriously,there have been way too many posts about draft pick.I do not really think that if we keep whining to Riot about draft pick, they will bring it back.
No, they won't bring it back because we are whining, they will bring it back if they start losing some of their beloved $$$. Why do you think they haven't removed it in EUW or NA yet?

Blue side is very easy to clear for a lot of junglers, even without a leash, while either of the non-buff camps on red side will demolish 90% of junglers, because they don't have stupid AoE. Even the likes of Mundo lose quite a lot of health to chickens or raptors.

You can't reliably practice a specific role in blind pick and draft was removed in EUNE.

: Hey guys, I just wanted to reiterate - we're definitely not ignoring your complaints and concerns, and many of them are valid. I actually really appreciate people with a calm, cool response giving their honest feedback on this change - it helps us a lot more than pretty much telling us to get stuffed (which you're also entitled to do!). I also appreciate both sides of the fence talking through this (both here and on Reddit - apparently we made the front page!) - getting views from both sides is equally as important. However we're not going to just ignore this, and we're actively going to keep an eye on reactions, queues, player numbers - everything we can to make informed choices in the future. This isn't the last message we'll be putting out around this by a long shot - we'll have more coming over the coming weeks to give you a clearer picture of the vision, the actions we're taking, and how this impacts you guys. Once again though, really appreciate those of you who are giving their opinions, thoughts, and even proposing some solutions. There's been a lot of comments on here already and we'll try to address some of the more common questions next week with our thoughts on things, both before we made the change and now seeing player reactions.
Translation: Hey morons, I just wanted to reiterate - we're definitely ~~not~~ ignoring your complaints and concerns, and none of them are valid. I actually really like typing responses that probably don't have any truth behind them. I also appreciate both sides of the fence talking through this (both here and on Reddit - apparently we made the front page with our dumb decision!) - getting views from both sides is equally as important, but will still be ignored. However we're ~~not~~ going to just ignore this, and we're actively going to keep an eye on reactions, queues, player numbers - everything we can to make uninformed choices in the future. This is probably the last message we'll be putting out around this. Once again though, really appreciate these replies were we can throw in a response that doesn't hold any truth, because we most likely won't listen to you. -Much Love, Rito. Seriously though, I love Riot and I've always spoken out for them through the whole season, but this is just a shitshow and they aren't doing everything, except putting out responses that might or might not get deleted in two months when they don't do anything they promised.

You need Q early on for damage so Q first. You need the extra gap closer of E at level 11, so E second. Evolved R is weak in the late game, so mostly W last.

Hey just say something preferably *WE ARE BRINGING NORMAL DRAFT BACK * Hi guys, This unfortunately isn't the answer you're looking for, and I'm not the person involved in making these decisions - but I really wanted to give you some context around the decision, as well as the lack of current (additional) messaging around it. When we talk about "queue health", at a super basic level we're looking at how quick you can get a game, and how balanced that game is. There can be a certain amount of tradeoff between these to adjust the other (IE: Get a wider skill range for a shorter queue time, or wait a longer time for a smaller skill range). These tradeoffs can only do so much, however - if there's not enough players in a certain queue, matchmaking is pretty much impossible without huge tradeoffs (IE: Diamond's playing against Bronze consistently). That makes for an extremely crappy experience in itself. EUW/BR/NA have a large enough player pool and, more importantly, large enough player pool in normal draft that we expect the queue health to remain at an acceptable level. With the other regions, normal draft was a relatively small portion of games being played. A majority were playing other game modes such as blind pick and ranked. With the introduction of flex queue alongside solo/duo - we really wanted to give both these queues a fighting chance of being healthy by avoiding segregating the queues hugely. This is where the decision around normal draft came in. We are aware of the pain point that this has introduced for some people though - and we're actively keeping an eye on things. As mentioned we really want to give these queues a chance at remaining healthy and enjoyable for players - both those who are playing solo/duo, and those who want to play flex with different numbers of friends. At this time, we really don't want to jump to any hasty decisions - but we also aren't ignoring you. We definitely want to keep a close eye on things and make decisions based around overall health of queue times and matchmaking, while also providing an experience that honestly a lot of players missed from last year with the inclusion of two new ranked queues.
I thought we would finally get a legit response from Riot, but oh well, it's another post basically saying "The players are wrong, we are right, shove off". You don't understand that for most people flex will just become the new normal draft and your rank in flex ranked won't be worth anything.

: Well, hopefully someone from Riot will see your post and realise that this decision is actually losing them active, loyal players. I hope league survives the coming apocalypse of the global removal of NDraft since it's an awesome game, but shoddy developmental decisions ruin all the best games.
Oh, Riot is dumb, but not dumb enough to actually remove normal draft globally, not in the upcoming season, at least. With the outrage that they created in EU, just by removing it from the smaller European region, they can't risk to do the same in EUW and NA.

This is a pointless and dumb change, but I guess Season 7 will be the place for those. I'm not sure if Riot actually wants to alianate the community or they just don't know what they are doing. This is interesting. Imagine this now: I play either ranked (competitively) or normal draft (casually). I'm not interested in blind pick in the slightest. Now the logical thing for me to do is to play solo queue competitively and to play flex queue casually. Surely Riot would want to maintain the competitive nature of flex ranked, but I cannot see how that will work if people like me will be using it to try out new champions etc. Of course I would try to win for the sake of my team, but I can't guarantee that everyone in my circumstances will have that attitude, because to them it's just a new version of normal draft pick. So I'm a bit baffled by this. Aren't Riot solving one problem by just creating another?
I generally play a lot of non-meta, and non viable picks in normals, especially when I'm jungling. I don't play that badly on them, but not even nearly on a level that can be accepted in ranked. Well, now I'll have to do those in flex ranked because I want to have fun. We'll see how that ends.
