: disagree with a lot of points, mainly on "you make new champs op on purpose" - What? kai'sa was pretty bad early on with only 525 range, pyke has THE lowest winrate of all time, kayn was pretty balanced as well. the only champ that was "op" was Zoe and they fixed that pretty fast. also you contradict yourself when you say they want to make it more casual and want to bring in more new players while also making it harder to learn. I'm not saying I like the "every 2 weeks a new patch" - system, but your logic is majorly flawed. Number 5 is also pretty wrong. They nerfed team carrying and buffed solocarrying by for example taking away global bounty gold and giving it to the player who does the kill. I never understood that complaint anyway. Do you really want to solo-carrying be a thing? in season 1-3 it was, and people complained A LOT about it. "waaaah waaaah one player feeds and the fed guy snowballs out of control." now its the other way "waaahhh waaaah you can't carry alone anymore, everything is team based". in conclusion the only thing I agree with is true damage and the fact that changing the game too often too soon is, to say the least, hard to adapt to.

Thank you for answering. To break down your comment, I will try and tell you my point of view on each topic. You say that Kai'sa is pretty bad with her range, yet you have to keep in mind, that she has her E that gives her insanly good movementspeed right at the getgo. She also has her Ult which gives her the gap closer. Of course she can be hard to master, but that doesn't change her insane damage on her passive that gives her a great advantage against other laners. Pyke has one of the lowest win-rates yes, but that is because he has pretty high cooldowns, and people are trying to play him jungle. He is ment to be played support with a good ADC. Pyke is like the Azir. He is difficult to master, but can pack a punch if played right. This doesn't change the fact that Ryze, Azir and Gragas have been having the lowest win-rate for 4 months +, which I find quite amusing, since you want to do something about Pyke yet forget the ones that are cursed to be below 50%. Kayn has a good kit, yet it is his "old Fiora ult" that makes it hard to deal with him. If he didn't follow you, got untouchable and healed himself, then he would be decent, but the ult reminds to much of the old Fiora ult, which Riot did remove on purpose from the game, since it was too broken. It's not a contradiction. The game gets harder to learn for many players. If you want to play one specific champion, but Riot nerfs that champion to the ground. You can either keep playing that champion, change the champion or change the role. Changing the game changes the rules. One day you could go tank on Alistar, the next you would go AP and the third Support. If you are going to learn a new player the game, it is difficult to say, what he should go, where he should go, what items, runes and build. The games pacing is shifting too fast and you aren't allowed to relax and learn. Therefore I find your statement "... logic is majorly flawed." don't suit on this argument, since I am trying to paint a picture for Riot. If you couldn't see it, then it is fine to ask, but don't go and be that guy about it. It is true that in season 1-3 solocarrying was a bit of a problem, but yet again, it was easier to deal with than it is nowadays. If one got fed like a Katarina, you could easily use your CC or close her down. The rest of the team wouldn't have any kills nor farm, which made them easy to kill too. It depended on skill rather than"outplaying in numbers". It is a team game of course, and we should remember that, but it doesn't change the fact, that most games are based on how your team is doing rather than how you are doing. Besides, the new AD meta is quite hard to survive in, since Riot changed the gold mechanic. The player who get the kill gets the gold. This is a problem for the current meta with AD since a Master Yi can easily get to late game, since he get too much gold out of it. To conclude, I find many of your points valid, but I guess we can agree, that the game isn't being player friendly as it used to.
: A complaint to Riot
UPDATE: I've been playing 20 games and every game I am being steamrolled by people walking as a team around in every lane. As a mage main, I am being stomped, and I do not have any chance. I have tried to go Fiora, Gangplank, Master Yi and Xin Zhao mid, and that works as the only champions. This is due to the AD buffs and True damage abuse. As a mage, I can not do a single thing, which leads me to lose more often than ever before. Even my MMR has been lowered drasticly since the new changes. NOTE TO ALL: If you are a Tank, AP or ADC, you are going to have a really bad time ranking. Do yourself a favor and either pick AD Bruiser or Quit the game until they fix their mistakes.
: Saying this for many months now. All my friends were strict against my opinion, but now some big youtubers found the time to talk about it (maybe they did before and my friends didn't see them because they might just watch german YT's) and now it's the spoken truth. Not that I care that much about how my prefaces were ignore, but.. My main argument always was - It's not the balancing, it's the pace itself, there is just too much. Of everything. Watching Skooch's "can we talk about this", which is already on.. 50-60 episodes/champs or something, you start to wonder how 50 champs can be broken and op. And then you start to realise that it's just too much! Even started a thread about it a few weeks ago, which got obliderated in the forums..! Most people roaming the forums just search for a post in which they can look like they have the ability to successfully discuss and debunk a bad argument anyways. Most likely these are also ingame trolls, feeders or about platinum players, which in my practical experience don't get influenced by the changes that much, due to pocket picks and their generally huge ego.

: Why do you think hextech chest were made? to get skins that have been deleted... omg
lol, you will only get skins you already have {{sticker:sg-ezreal}}
OBS Okami (EUNE)
: Reroll skins, you will eventually get rusty blitz black alistar etc.
Not possible. They have been "deleted" which means, that you won't be able to reroll them or buy them.

: guift me moo cow alistar and i will give u my blessing to find atleast 15 of the remain skins x)
How would you do that? {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-popcorn}}

Many Rioters do look these through, since they care about their fans. That's interesting. Well I'm all for them offering them to you at whatever rate they were or less if you're dedicated enough to have that many skins. I thought i was bad when I realised I'm just shy of 500 myself {{sticker:sg-ezreal}}
Hahah so you are a seeker of the skins as well. I guess we do share a common goal together my brother {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-rainbows}}
meco78 (EUW)
: so you re discussing about completing the remain 20 skins while i even my self dont have 20 skins yet xD . feelsbadmen{{champion:32}} And no part of their unique style is they re not purchasble anymore (blakc alistar-young ryze-.......etc )
Nope, and it kinda sucks, since it would be awesome to aqcuire last remaining. I mean, I litterally just roll for skins, when a new skin is out {{sticker:sg-zephyr}}
Grimmrok (EUNE)
: That's quite the life goal that you've got going on....
Yep {{sticker:zombie-nunu-bummed}}
: Honestly if you have THAT many skins, maybe making a support ticket and messaging Riot directly might yield some sort of agreement.
Already did that, but they told me, that I might have a better chance by making a discussion in one of the forums. Many Rioters do look these through, since they care about their fans.

: I'm not enjoying the game, this is why:
I really like this game, but it really is filled with hate-filled people. An hour ago, I was reported, because I couldn't get over and help them in time. After that, they could only call me mean things and flame at me, which makes the game really hard to have fun with. I really wish and hope, that the community won't be damaged by those hate-filled players!
