MARBL3 S0DA (EUNE)
: REVERT AKALI
I liked the old Akali and her wide thigh gap {{sticker:sg-lux}} but I think the only problem with her is her banrate and maybe she is able to slow the enemy too much to complete her combo.

: > you should only vote no if you have an actual reason I have actual reason, I wanted to see results, sadly there is no option to see them without voting. And you didn't provide extra option for people like me, so I picked the most fitting one from those you did provide. > It's a lot harder to communicate in pings effectively, most people ignore them you cannot deny that. Many players also mute all at the beginning of the game, but this command doesn't mute pings, so there's bigger chance that everyone will see pings than that everyone will see your written messages.
Sorry for not adding that option, I didn't think to add it. I don't think many players mute all. Nearly everyone in the game in almost all of my games use the chat at least a few times. Even people who are getting flamed and say "muted" don't actually mute the flamer most of the time.

: Oh, you misunderstood me. Of course I don't want UK server, why would I want something like that when I live on the other side of Europe? But I also wouldn't mind if Riot did make it. It doesn't really concern me. So while I did answer no in your poll it's not the answer that correctly shows my position. And yeah, it's a team game and proper communication is important, but you can do that without words. So no, language isn't as important as you think in this case.
The question was not 'do you want to play on a UK server?'. If it doesn't concern you then you shouldn't vote no, you should only vote no if you have an actual reason. Such as you don't want your UK friends to leave you. It's a lot harder to communicate in pings effectively, most people ignore them you cannot deny that.
: > UK players could still play with their friends in EUW if they choose to, they aren't forced to play on only one server. Yes they could. I'm not forced to play on EUNE because I'm from that part of Europe either. But having friends there and playing on EUW (or vice versa) is a pain in the ass because I need a separate account. > 15ms is a much bigger difference from 30ms than say 115ms to 100ms. That's true but still not a worthy tradeoff, 30ms is just fine. Some people are playing at 80 or 200+ because the game still has no middle eastern or south African servers... And I've played with more people from those countries on EUW and EUNE than you think.
I have good friends that play from Qatar on EUW and they get 110 ping, they would be willing to get 10-15 ping more to play with me in UK. But the fact is I don't need to play with them 100% of the time, I can make new friends from mostly UK on a UK server. I don't see how it's a tradeoff, the only people who have something to lose is Riot. They would not create a UK server without first researching the idea and if it makes business sense. I know there are players from Africa and middle east, but they don't contribute to League as much as UK even though they probably have more players. People in the middle east can play on the Turkish server for the best ping if they want too, and I do want Africa to get their own server. They deserve it. It's not fun playing on 200 ping, 100 is managable but I do feel bad for them.

: You forgot option "I don't care". And I wouldn't be surprised if majority picked that option, because it woudn't really affect EUW server as a whole. UK League population is not as big as you may think. And I expect that not everyone from UK will want to leave EUW and play with much worse queue times in a game where language doesn't really matter. You can play on highest level without speaking. just use pings
If you didn't care you wouldn't vote, let alone make a comment expressing you don't care. Language matters a great deal in League, it's a team game afterall.
: First of all the EUW server is in Amsterdam, not Germany. Also if the UK got their own server that would mean a couple of things: - horribly long queue times, you'd find a game on Turkey a lot faster - UK players would be unable to play with their friends from other countries All that for 5-15ms lower ping? Nobody would play there. Simply a bad idea... We might as well create a server for each country in Europe while we're at it.
Thanks for the correction about the location of the servers. With that said the idea that nobody would play because of the queue times is simply not true. When the server first comes out of course there won't instantly be 100,000 players. Japan has I believe only around 70,000 players and I have played on there a few times. It takes the same time as EUW if not shorter to find a game. The fact is just because EUW has 10-20x the playerbase doesn't mean queue times are 10-20x faster. UK players could still play with their friends in EUW if they choose to, they aren't forced to play on only one server. 15ms is a much bigger difference from 30ms than say 115ms to 100ms.
