>I didn't expect you to understand indeed Ah, the classic "no u" argument. You can't expect to win any arguments like that. Grow up, that's what children do. >you're playing league and actually defending it I'm defending the parts that can and should be defended. I'm not blindly hating on every aspect of the game like you. Our difference is that i actually understand the game and you don't. There is nothing you can say to win this argument so i'm out and ignoring you from now on. Have a nice day.
: 10 years of LoL - New MMO RPG announcement?
The new game is going to be a fighting game. Some developer was approached by riot a while back and he was asked to join the development for a fighting game. I don't know if they have multiple new games under way but they are at least making a fighting game.

Want me to show you a silver player that i tell him to play {{champion:86}} {{champion:28}} and he will get at least plat? I saw a god damn ex silver now chalenger...Dude thats why ranked is %%%%ed up people like you shouldnt be allowed there.

You just dont wanna accept the truth because is probably too mutch for you.Even apdo and many other good palyers said this season skills is not that important. You can win games from picks.Champs have more impact.Play right champ win most of the games.Most of the games end less then 15 mins.There is a reason why high elo say "play yi silver win games"even noobs can get to plat with the right champ. Stop lieng dude.You probably didnt play s9 League ranked maybe.Or you just delusional af.
>Just because you live into a fantasy doesnt mean evryone must do that.

We all know that's not true. Even this account of yours is proof that skill matters. Or are you saying you got to around dia promos with 58% wr with pure luck? Even if you would say that, there isn't a single person who believes it. You are literally contradicting yourself.

: > carry them So, this is a 'team' game, yet I am expected to carry? Even though we are in a COMPETITIVE environment? > you people How should he refer to the people he means? a.k.a, THE PEOPLE WHO BLAME YOU. That's like saying "Mexicans speak spanish" and you say "mexicans can be considered as racist", which would ONLY be racist if you actually would make a racist remark, but since there wasn't any racism in this post, I fail to see the correlation between what he said and your quote regarding "You seriously need to stop using this phrase as it can sometimes have a racist meaning." So let me quote you here: > You just wasted a part of your life typing something that got completely debunked in the comment you replied to. Now, this is what was said and this is how you responded: > carry them Refering to you somehow being to blame for their mistakes (and this isn't the first person to say such thing. It's a common thing to say: You should've been better. or: If you really deserve higher, you can carry yourself. Even though this is a team game? > Pretty much everyone here will tell you that if you don't play specific hypercarry characters and carry every game, you don't deserve to climb and it's your fault you lose. > It can't possibly be that the team is feeding their jungler and ADC, no no, it's your fault. Now, this is correct, I have seen this crap come by plenty of times. Even though you played fine, it's somehow your fault for losing, no idea how? Or to be more precise: They blame you for eventually ending up with a negative KDA, because you couldn't stop the enemy team from stomping you AND your team. So to sum it up: He responded very fair to the comment 'carry them'. Since he literally took over what was stated and did not change the meaning of the sentence. This is how you respond: > You are missing the point of those comments by a mile. The point is, he should improve his own play because his teammates are a random variable that he can't control. No idea how you came up with "You are missing the point of those comments by a mile.". I mean, since when do you decide what people mean when they say 'you don't deserve X elo if you couldn't carry' or 'you didn't have 100cs at 10 min and didn't have 30/0/0 kills' etc. So my question would be: Who exactly told you that 'you don't deserve "insert division", or else you could've carried yourself' means: 'You should always look at what you can do better'? Please show me where this sentence = the explanation you gave. > What do you expect them to do? Tell him to eat 3 pears every day so he can start carrying? No. Git gud is the only medicine Going by your logic, everyone is bad and should 'git gud'. No one expects you to 'eat 3 pears every day so he can start carrying'. A person rather expects to have an answer regarding why so many people SUCK at competitive matchmaking. I am not talking about just having a bad game, but rather having a match history of consistent negative kda, horrible farm, bad decision making, no idea how the map works etc. Of course everyone should and could improve, but that is NO reason whatsoever to sit there, when you just saw how your team caused you to lose for the 5th time in a row and ask yourself: What could I do to be better and be able to CARRY? Going by your logic, faker should also 'git gud', dade should 'git gud', inSec should 'git gud', Uzi should 'git gud'. After a while, you can sit there, look at the game and simply admit: You may have made small mistakes and of course you can LEARN from those mistakes, but was the loss to blame on you? Absolutely NOT. > No one says that it's only his fault but they are pointing out what he could have done better Most people DO say it's his fault. "You don't deserve X elo if you didn't carry" etc. So again, no idea how you came up with 'No one says that it's only his fault'. Had they said: Your team sucked, big time, but here are some tips regarding you being able to play better (no idea why you would bother trying and learning so much if you end up with people in a COMPETITIVE ENVIROMENT who refuse to actually improve or even win) I would've understood, and you actually had anything to back your claim "You are missing the point of those comments by a mile. The point is, he should improve his own play because his teammates are a random variable that he can't control." with up. Now however, you need to make things up such as the previous quote, to save face. > And yes, a champion choice is something that does affect your chances of winning. You can't cry that a game was uncarriable before you did EVERYTHING in your power to make your chances of winning as high as possible. That's just an undeniable fact. Often people DO everything in their power to win (even if it means to flame IN A COMPETITEVE ENVIRONMENT so they can vent and focus), yet they end up being banned, because it's not 'sportsmanlike behavior'), only to hear that 'carry them' or something in those lines. This is how Owl responded to you: > Oh please, you people act as if team mates are never to blame for any loss. It's always you that should take the blame. In which he's completely RIGHT. You receive the blame very often, again: "Carry them". You can keep on saying whatever you want and like regarding 'You missed the point', but when push comes to shove, there isn't anything else to make out of this then you being blamed. Even if you try to change the context of it by saying "You don't understand what they mean"... I mean, if this were to be the case, then let me flame and rage as much as I want? Since I mean (obviously) something else then you on the receiving end. Why doesn't that work the same way as you just said? I flame you, but cannot be banned, because "You are missing the point of those comments by a mile. The point is, he should improve his own play because his teammates are a random variable that he can't control." In my case it would be: "You are missing the point of those comments by a mile. The point is, I just told you that you weren't that good as you thought and maybe you should perform action X, tough love after all". So to sum it up: Taking things out of context IS allowed when it works for you, but not when I want to use it against riot, so my ban is undone? > Half your team feeds? Your fault. All your team feeds except you? Your fault. Jungler refuses to gank your lane even when you prevent them from warding and set up perfect easy ganks? Your fault. ADC and support feed their hypercarry? Your fault. Again, he's very much right regarding this part. Half your team feeds? Everyone somehow expects you to gank a lane because "you didn't gank a lane once" (so that should be something you should improve on going by your text and interpretation bending, right?) even though you couldn't gank a single lane, because they basically died, teleported back in lane and DIED AGAIN. So this somehow ends up YOUR FAULT, because THIS WAS SOMETHING YOU SHOULD HAVE IMPROVED ON.
Yeah, sorry but i'm not gonna read that.

Good of you to admit you are wrong, even if it was done in an extremely childish and unintelligent way.

Jungler refuses to gank your lane even when you prevent them from warding and set up perfect easy ganks? Your fault. ADC and support feed their hypercarry? Your fault. This is what really annoys me about you people, it's always your fault. You can control some things, you can control your own gameplay, you can control your decisions, you can control the objectives to a degree depending on who you play, you can control 2 lanes at once so both are won. The only way to carry games reliably is to play a hypercarry and get fed, which usually involves either having an amazing support character or the enemy team making really stupid plays, or in some cases, both. People that usually make these type of threads already ARE doing everything in their power to win, and they still lose because you get matched with window licking oxygen thieves. Tell me, why should I not be allowed to win because I don't play hypercarry characters to accommodate my team being useless? Why does that mean I should lose often? Why does that mean I should lose LP and potentially rank because the REST of my team is doing horribly and feeding? Why am I being held accountable for SOMEONE ELSES mistakes? In what world do you people live in where you hold person A accountable and blame him for persons B and C mistakes?
You obviously didn't read what i said. You just wasted a part of your life typing something that got completely debunked in the comment you replied to.

It's always you that should take the blame. Again, no one said that. You need to stop with your delusions.
: Pretty much everyone here will tell you that if you don't play specific hypercarry characters and carry every game, you don't deserve to climb and it's your fault you lose. It can't possibly be that the team is feeding their jungler and ADC, no no, it's your fault.
You are missing the point of those comments by a mile. The point is, he should improve his own play because his teammates are a random variable that he can't control. What do you expect them to do? Tell him to eat 3 pears every day so he can start carrying? No. Git gud is the only medicine.No one says that it's only his fault but they are pointing out what he could have done better. And yes, a champion choice is something that does affect your chances of winning. You can't cry that a game was uncarriable before you did EVERYTHING in your power to make your chances of winning as high as possible. That's just an undeniable fact.

: How am I supposed to rank up
>How am I supposed to rank up is this is what my games are like: You will rank up by simply playing. >Rather have regular games with normal lp loss and gains But those are regular games for you. Even if you haven't played a lot recently, it doesn't take much to get your skill back. You had played 11 games with a 45% wr. That means you actually have about 50% wr (since you can't have the same about of wins and losses with 11 games). If you have a 50% win rate, the game has judged you accordingly. You will climb with your win rate because of your LP gains. This is about fairness and that is why your mmr can't and shouldn't be lowered (unless you start losing a lot more than winning). It wouldn't be fair for people with lower mmr to be placed in the same match with you since you would have an automatic advantage since you do not actually belong in that mmr rating with them. >It forces me to go ARAM or Flex to have some fun. Yeah if you want to stomp your games then you have to play against players who are worse than you, not equal. >This isn't my league. Well so far everything shows that it is indeed your league.
: Don't worry, someone will say that this great matchmaker is completely your fault and there is no on else to blame but you. It's not the matchmaker giving you horrible team mates, it's not the fact that half your team is feeding horribly to a point you can't carry, no, it's entirely your fault.
>Don't worry, someone will say that this great matchmaker is completely your fault and there is no on else to blame but you. I'm not going to say it's his fault who he gets matched with (or it partially is since it's his performance that affects his mmr which is used in matchmaking) >It's not the matchmaker giving you horrible team mates It does give those teammates to him (although that's not what the OP is even saying, he is complaining about being matched in too hard games for his rank) but it doesn't know if they are going to perform good or bad in that specific game. It really can't know that unless the player is an edge case (basically smurf or boosted). >it's not the fact that half your team is feeding horribly to a point you can't carry It's not matchmaking's fault either though. It's literally just players being inconsistent. All the matchmaking does is match numbers together. It can't know if you are gonna feed or stomp your next game.

Disable allied chat and all chat by going to options and unchecking the boxes and play the game. That way you can't get punished for verbal toxicity because you can't type at all yourself or see anything anyone says (you can still see and hear pings). This makes it a smooth ride back to honorable status if you just play the game a decent amount. You should get a checkpoint every 2 weeks.

: Because it's a teamgame and a huge part of your success comes from how well you can work with different teams. I get it, you're mad that you once again had a team you could simply not carry - but the system works very well as it is right now. If they'd made a pure solo mode, it would have to be on a 1v1 map.
>If they'd made a pure solo mode, it would have to be on a 1v1 map. No? I don't think you understand the concept.
: But how can you prove that? I mean sure it is suspicious if a b4 player has a 80% winrate after a week but how can you be sure that it's not him?
Naturally it's not easy but there are signs that can make it rather obvious. Let's give an obvious case: A player has 500 games played with 50% win rate in silver and is a janna onetrick. Suddenly he/she starts playing jungle with lee sin, has flash on a different button, has a 90% win rate on it and plays from a different location where he hasn't played from before. His/her performance goes back to normal after the location changes back to normal location again. Naturally they aren't all this obvious but there are many signs that can be looked at.

: No. Smurfs and boosting are to funny to ban to leave it only solo.
Smurfing isn't against the rules and getting "boosted" by duo partner who is a smurf isn't against the rules either. It is only against the rules to boost someone by logging in with their account and playing the game for them.

>it had an objective. top 10 team of the challenger ladder were invited to play in challenger series. so u had a reason to climb No they weren't and the advancements of LoL's pro scene wouldn't even allow that to be possible now. An invalid argument. >smurf exist in all modalitys. normal/soloq/flex/tft/aram everywhere u go u can find a smurf and? what's the problem? If you can't see the problems and differences between the amount of impact a smurf has in different roles then you are not worth talking to. >in team ranked u couldn't even speack about "smurf", because is the same thing of flex queue right now. And here you just admit that flex queue is the same as team ranked. And even if you didn't mean to say that, it is still exactly the case. Flex is as meaningful as team ranked was with as good matchmaking (tbh actually team ranked had even worse) > if u are challenger 100000000 lp but u never played flex in ur life and u say: "mmm let's try to play flex because i wanna be challenger there too". u know form what elo u start? ta-dan, iron 4. so a challenger player is a smurf on his own account just because he never played flex? Shows what you know... when you play flex the very first time it DOES actually take your soloq mmr into account. Riot explicitly stated that when they released flex queue. >team ranked was the same. when u start a new team u started with placements,based on that u could go with 10w-0l plat 4 Yeah it allowed you to game the system and keep stomping teams that weren't on your level, which is even worse than creating a smurf account to do it. >based on what u will be banned? permabanned player can keep play the game just by creating a new account. how they are supposed to discover i'm playing on a different account? Based on smurfing. If you are honestly thinking they don't have the technology to detect a smurf then you are beyond hopeless. And as i mentioned before, every new account you play clash with has to have a new phone number. There is a limit how many new numbers you can get before you run out. Not to mention most people aren't %%%%%%ed enough to let other people put their phone numbers everywhere and use them. As if your parents and especially grand parents would let you use their numbers on something they don't trust. They have to verify it through their phones too so it's not enough that you just enter a random number. You need to have access to that phone. So again, your argument is invalid. Having a phone verification is ALWAYS better than no verification. It doesn't have to be much better, it's enough that it IS better. >i explained to u why it isn't true in the post before Except you didn't. You didn't disprove the fact that the phone number verification system is better than no verification system. >maybe u don't remember that u have no idea what are u typing about ^^ Poor soul, you are drowning in your own delusion and ignorance.

There are just cases that the matchmaking system can't account for. for real dude the problem with league right now is the matchmaking, the hidden mmr, that not even opgg can calculate now, is the only season oppgg doesnt give you the mmr number you at the moment. and the fast join queles, instead of i looking for a rank match and pop off at 20 seconds, maybe wait a minute and get me people of my elo instead of give me silver2 with 30%win rate in gold3 elo ranked.
Oof, that was painful to read. You are so mad that you can't see the facts but you are just hating blindly. >LP sucks?? for real! You didn't understand what i meant by that. The LP system (so basically your visible rank) sucks because it doesn't show your actual skill level because it doesn't go hand in hand with your hidden mmr. So it doesn't do it's job, which is to represent the player's skill level as accurately as possible. Someone can have a silver rank but a plat level mmr, which means the player is not actually silver but a plat player. That is why it sucks. That player's rank rank should be plat, not silver. >you telling me 30% win rate 10 wins and 24 loss as high mmr for silver and can get to gold3 elo ranked? First of all, that game was gold 4 level match, not gold 3. And as an answer to your question, yes. Easily. That's because HE WAS GOLD LAST SEASON. It's not a fresh account or a player with a poor rank last season. He was gold last season so his mmr is gold this season when he starts playing again (roughly). >havent played enough games to drop? he loses all his games almost! It literally doesn't matter with his amount of games. 10 wins and 21 losses. That means his mmr drops equal to 11 losses from the start. 11 losses is not much at all. >me 90wins 75loss with only lose 4 games in 20 last matches constant climbing and riot say my mmr is low for gold2 elo? are you all smoking something that makes your mind numb? The system simply deemed you to be close to your actual skill level so when you suddenly got a huge win rate for a short time, the mmr didn't rise as quickly as your rank. That's how your mmr becomes "low" for your rank in addition to losing games at 0 LP. >for real dude the problem with league right now is the matchmaking No it isn't. >the hidden mmr No it isn't. >that not even opgg can calculate now, is the only season oppgg doesnt give you the mmr number you at the moment. OP.gg never knew your actual mmr anyway. It was literally just guessing. It doesn't matter if it shows it anymore or not since it wasn't real. >maybe wait a minute and get me people of my elo instead of give me silver2 with 30%win rate in gold3 elo ranked. He had the same mmr as you did at that moment so it was a correct match. No amount of waiting would have changed that.
: matchmaking needs to be fixed
The problem is not matchmaking since it is easily explained why the 30% wr player was in your game. You had a low mmr and that 30% wr guy had a high mmr compared to his rank. Now you must think, how? He was gold last season. That's how. He hasn't played enough games to drop his mmr out of gold (well now he has but not during your game yet). The new season gives a soft reset which means his rank is lower than his mmr at the start so it looked like he was silver when he wasn't at that moment (and for this reason i think the LP system sucks). I'm willing to bet that he is boosted by a friend or something for season rewards but again, that's not a matchmaking problem. League has the best matchmaking system out of any game, objectively speaking. There are just cases that the matchmaking system can't account for.

: That's what I did. But somehow there were still dia+ players in normals. So I had to tank the MMR to get to a point where my friends could play normally. You can stop telling me what to do because I did it. And it didn't work. So I had to resort to lowering my MMR myself.

Shamose (EUW)
: I am playing normal games. But since my MMR is so much higher than theirs it's just pulling the average up to the point wher they have to play against diamonds.
Use that smurf account then to play normals with them. Your smurf account definitely doesn't have a high mmr in normals assuming you haven't grinded normal games with it (no one does that on smurfs) since your ranked mmr has nothing to do with normal mmr.
Shamose (EUW)
: This thread is about smurfs. What do you think I did before having to lose games to tank my MMR?
if you play on that smurf only with friends, it will not climb higher than they can climb with you. So stop playing on it without your friends and you don't have to lose on purpose or level another account to stay on their level of play.
Shamose (EUW)
: So what else should I do to have enjoyable games with my friends?
Level up a new account so you don't have to intentionally lose games that others want to win. Losing intentionally is never the right approach.
: Why do you smurf?
I only smurf to play with friends. There are times when i have done it to test how fast i can climb but i pretty much only smurf when i play with friends.

You are wondering why you aren't getting any honors despite deserving them but then you yourself honor someone who probably didn't deserve it more than someone else. But as a real answer to your point, people tend to honor a) their friends and b) people who had more contact with them during a game. As an example, if a jungler ganked my lane often or even got me a lead that i could snowball, i will most likely honor him as his performance and impact are something i could properly notice (i'm a solo laner). There are exceptions ofc but that's how it usually goes. Ofc a jungler can never hope to get a honor from me if i didn't see him during a game.

: How much last your loading screens?
My average loading screens are so short that i don't think you can teach anything in that time.
: will chat restriction drop honor level to 1?
The first one will, yes. No matter what your honor level was before that. A second chat restriction will then drop you to 0 honor if you are at honor level 1. 14-day ban will automatically throw you to honor level 0, no matter your previous honor level.

: I never said that smurfs stop this from happening. I said that smurfs would downvote this into oblivion (meaning that Riots won't even see the topic). It is not the same thing. > THAT is what prevents this from ever being a thing and nothing else. No. What really prevents it from happening is that Riots do not see the described issue as a problem, at all. If they decide one day that it needs fixing, they will re-design it all from scrap in no time and throw it into our faces. Just remember how Draft pick appeared all of a sudden. And then autofill feature.
Draft always existed and the only season autofill didn't exist was season 6. It existed before that and after that.

: no it's rather easy to reach perfect balance rock paper scissors is a perfectly balanced game riot can easily just change every champion to have the exact same base stats and scaling and every ability would reach an arbitrary number of combined damage at any point in the game so that a brand with full combo would deal 1800 dmg after resists and yuumi would deal 1200 damage and heal/shield 600 damage that can easily EASILY be done is that fun tho is that interesting?don't know about you but i don't see people playing rock paper scisssors professionally
>no it's rather easy to reach perfect balance >rock paper scissors is a perfectly balanced game Yeah... You don't need to act dumb. We are obviously talking about video games here. More specifically, multiplayer games (because you need competition to even have a conversation about balance). Even chess is not perfectly balanced despite having exactly the same pieces and rules on both sides because white gets to move first. >riot can easily just change every champion to have the exact same base stats and scaling and every ability would reach an arbitrary number of combined damage at any point in the game so that a brand with full combo would deal 1800 dmg after resists and yuumi would deal 1200 damage and heal/shield 600 damage that can easily EASILY be done Except that wouldn't still be enough because champions have different kits. Some have more mobility than others, some have more range than others (melee vs ranged), some have stuns and some do not, some have harder to hit skillshots etc etc. Just changing numbers will never lead to perfect balance (the type of balance you are speaking about which is just one form of balance like i previously mentioned). So no, it's not easy to reach perfect balance. In fact, it's not possible. You can nitpick all you want about it being theoretically possible but it isn't in reality. The game that would be created by doing that isn't league of legends, it would be a new and different game. Balancing a game and completely changing it into another aren't the same things. > i don't see people playing rock paper scisssors professionally Obviously not as skill has nothing to do with it which means it doesn't have the ability to be competitive. That's a bad example. If you would have a mirror match-up in LoL (meaning same stats and kits and everything), there is still a huge amount of skill involved.
: Won't work. Smurf users will downvote you to hell in no time. Riots kinda know of this (they answered the question long ago) but they don't give a shot about it.
You thinking that smurfs are stopping this from happening is ignorant as hell. The real argument is that it would prevent people from swapping champions in champion select. THAT is what prevents this from ever being a thing and nothing else.
: Wow it rlly takes some time to get to lvl 5 and you cant forbid people to play what they like LOL, and what about new accs or smurf you forbid them to play ranked aswell
Those are hardly valid arguments. A real argument is: what about people who want to swap champions in champions select because of pick priority but aren't able to due to not being able to pick the champion they want to give to someone else? This is the argument that prevents this from ever being a thing and nothing else. Having to play normals before ranked with a champion would in every other case be a good thing.

: Well you can argue that a game can be balanced around something MMOs often balance around end game content RPGs often balance around progression ability RTS balance around potential income and output etc League has so many balance levers that the argument of balance can never be taken seriously AD sion is incredibly bad but if he can fully charge a Q from the bush he will 1 shot you without any reactionary counter play but then you have Tank Sion who doesn't care about his Q charging fully you just can't kill him So how do you balance this champion in scenarios where people can abuse vision and fully charge Qs in scenarios where people can ignore their Q in scenarios where people don't even know how to land his Q in scenarios where people can't land a Q due to enemies not being brain dead it's not possible now trying to balance it in accordance to 150 other champions with at minimum 2 variations in builds you can see how this task becomes impossible IE League isn't balanced It's perfectly Imbalanced and asking for Balance is ignorant stupid and will only break the champion Reference Ornn a 50% win rate dead champion
While a game can never each an absolute balance, that doesn't mean they should ignore it. They should always aim towards as good balance as possible. They don't have to reach it, but they have to aim for it for the game to be playable and for it to survive for a long period of time. >League has so many balance levers that the argument of balance can never be taken seriously Ofc it can be taken seriously. If something is disgustingly overpowered, it obviously needs to be nerfed to the point where it has a reasonable level of power. It doesn't have to hit perfect balance, but just get to a reasonable level. That means that there was a balance argument that had to be taken seriously. Also your Sion example is very bad as it has very easy solutions that already exist and make it balanced.

: who ever talks about balance has no idea about balance no game was ever balanced in no aspect ever if there was a game ever balanced then it died as soon as it came out balance is not fun balance is not interesting watch perfect imbalance to learn how balancing is done and how league and dota do it for example about the toxicity on the boards it's an ongoing problem with how the moderation is done you might feel like rengar is imbalanced until you start playing rengar and you start encountering champions like alistar gragas and poppy that completely nullify your existance the game may not be for you and thats fine there are plenty of other ganres that are interesting rts's, mmos, rpgs, racers, fighters, side scrollers, simulators if you are playing league just because it's popular you won't have fun playing it
Oof, when you start talking about balance like that, you have to define it first as it can mean multiple things. As an example, the balance you speak of is that every champion is just as powerful and good as another champion in every stage of the game. However, that's not the only type of balance that exists. It can also be considered to be balanced when different champions have different strengths and weaknesses but are just as viable as another champion when their own conditions are met. Like Twitch being good in the late game but bad in the early game and lucian being the exact opposite. That is also balance. So... >no game was ever balanced True >in no aspect >ever False >balance is not fun Subjective and false according to statistics. One of the reasons League is the most popular moba and game of all time is because the game was balanced enough to not have proper hard-counter match-ups. That means you will never be or feel completely useless from level 1 and skill also matters a lot more because of it. Thus, you could say balance is more fun than imbalance.

: My LP doesn't change the right way
Dodging games will first lose you 3 LP and every dodge after the first will cost you 10 LP. Your LP can go to negative, so if you dodged a game at 0 LP, it will place you at -3 LP.

: Being oblivious to trends and past actions doesn't make you factually right either. And besides, if portraying facts in a different way and adding upon said facts while exposing sth new doesn't count as adding "anything new" to you then you're being stubborn for the sake of being stubborn at this point and any further discussion would be pointless.
Going into more detail isn't adding something new that is relevant to the main topic. It's just adding more stuff in that doesn't matter. Not to mention i was never oblivious to anything. But you are right, continuing this discussion with you is pointless so I will leave it here.

: "makes shit up" yet looking at the whole past season and you see that it ain't "made up" when theres a clear trend. You're the gullible one if you thought the second statement was anything but a coverup to the backlash to quiet the masses, a tactic they've done many times now. What will happen this season is crystal clear which is next to nothing. Besides the already announced ArUrf, some missions improvements and that's that. _Maybe_ some winter event like poro king but that's me being hopeful, especially with the big chance of them bringing us winter ArUrf like in the past to cut sosts. Next season? Depends how much they're willing to do. With multiple reworks in the works, new champs like always and the newly added TFT as i said before a somewhat major gamemode a year at best. edit: and before you say anything. No, the laughable excuse of an "event" like the cats vs dogs one does not count
All that text and you STILL didn't add anything new to the conversation. Repeating yourself doesn't get you anywhere,

: > Riot didn't say they aren't making pve modes anymore and that was the entire point. Bro no one likes a "well actually" kinda guy so stop that attitude if you want a real discussion. The context of the post is asking whether or not quality gamemodes similar to Oddyssey and Invasion will ever return and from the posts and statements made it's unlikely for events of such quality to return any time soon. As said before what can be expected is a few tweaks to missions and at best the return of a few old gamemodes before the end of the year besides ArUrf. What happens in 2020 is beyond anyone's knowledge however as i said before judging by the statements and how things are looking rn i don't think we're getting more than one new event per year at best which is sad.
>Bro no one likes a "well actually" kinda guy so stop that attitude if you want a real discussion. What people don't like is people who make shit up. They never said they aren't making those modes anymore and that's that. Stop your speculations and continue your life. I'm the kind of person you can have discussions with since i'm speaking with facts, not imaginary speculations. No one likes haters who hate for the sake of hating.
