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.
So... here I am agreeing with most of what you say about "queue health", and how Normal Draft is "unhealthy" in that regard. But why simply kill it off, instead of improving a unique LP-free rankedish experience. What I´m talking about is, that the only reason I´d prefer Blind Pick is the shorter time to get into a game. I don´t want to do the whole 3-5 minute champ select+leaver, and the next 3-5 min. select being followed by the 2 minute loading screen. Yea so, why not simply improve the Draft experience (which is the quintessential form of Leage), and instead get rid of the Blind Pick?
: Thanks. Also, Ludovico Einaudi is a great artist. Good choice, if your name is after him.
Yes I chose it thinking of him^^. Yiruma sounds a bit strange, and neither Sonata Arctica or Voltaire were available :P . And regarding the visibillity... I just get irritated easily whenever someone is being pushed to do stuff they actually don´t want to do (0% white-knighting, 100% annoyance). - "Get Facebook! What you don´t want to? Pff!" - "Get a smartphone and WhatsApp! What you don´t want to? Pff!" Dont ask me how often I had those kinds of conversations.
: Sorry, but the community doesn't get to decide how comfortable I am with my own image :) I made a bet and said I would eat broccoli if I lost it, and I will.. it's not a punishment :P
> Sorry, but **no one but me** gets to decide how comfortable I am with my own image :) Fixed that for you.
: Could you or someone here make one? (public chat room) I recently joined EUW, and would be nice to have people to chat with once in a while.
Not sure if you misunderstood me, or don´t know about chat-rooms in LoL ^^' . Noone has to "create" one. You simply go and join a room, and if noone is in the room you essentially create it (like Etherpads). So all you gotta do is have a name for the room that´s easily written/remembered. F.e. when there are party Ip weekends, there are chat-rooms titled "party ip 1-X". The only downside these chats have to clubs is, that the chat is not persistent. Meaning if you leave the room and reenter it, you´ll find it empty. ___________________________________________________________ Hope I didn´t explain something you didn´t alrdy now before^^. Sry if the rambling annoyed.

Inb4 ppl add you hoping you are a girl :P . Wouldn´t it be enough if there´d be a "public service" chat-room or something?

ok that´s awesome^^! Maybe I´ll try to make this years christmas tree into a Maokai...
Eveninn (EUW)
: A last good morning!
To be honest, if you really are addicted to writing, then I think it is for the best if you try and take a different approach. And while I won´t be sad that you´ll stop with the blogging, I will be sad to lose an active member of the EUW boards. As such I´ve always respected you.
: Whats your favourite Rioter
RiotBrokenSword. That guy got transfered here to the old GD to "be here for the EUW players". He was really active for about 2-3 weeks. Then he disappeared.
: they brought back ranked teams after disabeling 5 men ranked for diamond+. if you play a chilled evening of 3 games you need 10 days you have roughly 8 weeks left and you had plenty of weeks before that. your idea of giving wardskins depending on dyna que preference would give everyone a wardskin without any efforts. they are a reward for dooing something
So me playing soloQ is nothing, while you having "chilled evening of 3 games" rewards you? Rofl. EDIT: Especially that if you queue as a 5 man premade in dynamicQ, you do absolutely the same and don´t get jack shit. You make no sense :O.
: i already got the highest tier ward when the ranked rewards were revealed. it honestly is not that hard to get
It´s honestly not about being hard to get or not. But let me think about this for a moment: You got the highest reward, so you had 45 points in your ranked team... - 45 points = 15 wins on SR - 15 wins on SR with a winrate of 50% = ~30 games. - 30 ~ games on SR = thats 17 1/2 hours if you say that each game was 35 minutes long (so including champ select and queue). And you honestly go and say it´s easy, after Riot disabled ranked teams for the start of the season? They only reenabled them after challenger teams complained - they didn´t even want US to have teams anymore. ______________________________________________________________ Do you honestly not see the problem with that?

MicroBr3w (EUW)
: Hey guys, Thanks for bringing this up. **TL;DR: We can do better. And we will, where we can.** More context... Posting on the boards is something we wrestle with, wanting to do as much as we can, but there are some challenges. Happy to discuss more. Figured I'd put some things down here to hopefully provide some context. **Right or wrong, Red Names have a perception of authority.** For example, I work in the Live Services area, where we monitor and try to keep the game, boards, etc up and running all the time. If I just got out of a Ranked match where I was smashed by a {{champion:7}} , for example, and I come to the boards and say "/rage {{champion:7}} needs a nerf! Promo lost :(", well....that could get picked up as "Riot says LB needs a nerf". Guess what? I'm probably the LAST person at Riot that should be making champ balance decisions. Oh, and it could be because I'm in Silver and that LB was a Gold OTP LB. {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}} That said, when we DO have the knowledge and expertise to post something, we should jump on it. For example, during yesterday's EUN Game Start issue, I [posted ](http://boards.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/announcements-en/Z45VXNos-resolved-eun-1492016-games-not-starting-properly)on the Announcements board, trying to keep everyone up to date on the status. We have the in-client ticker (that little yellow/red marker left of the Launch/Play button), and we have the [Server Status Page](http://status.leagueoflegends.com/#euw). But we can do better and the board post yesterday is an attempt to level up in this area. **Would love your feedback on whether it was useful.** We also like to post on the random and fun threads that are out there. "Who's your favorite champ?", "How do you beat Heimer top?", etc. These type of posts are a lot of fun because we are Players first and foremost, talking about the game we love. These type of threads are easy to hop into :) Constructive threads are also good. For example, "Anyone else in Portugal unable to connect?". Or "Why am I unable to buy the new Yorick skin?". These are specific and either let us know there's an issue, or we can reply saying we know about it. At least then you can know it's not just you, and it's on Riot's side of things to fix. Lastly, we try to avoid the really salty posts, because...well...they are salty. If there's a post that starts with "Rito servers are shit", more than likely that OP doesn't want me to provide [links](http://euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/riot-games/editorial/ping-pwn-waging-war-lag-eu-players) to Riot Direct [posts](http://euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/riot-games/editorial/ping-pwn-waging-war-lag-eu-players), or explain how we upgraded our servers, or how it could be their ISP. They are just mad and venting. I get it, and I don't want to just reply with a "yeah, sucks. sorry". That would make me rage even more if I were the OP. (That was a wall of text. Grats if you made it this far) So, what do you think? Besides doing a better job in general, do you think we should rethink the above points?
The only thing I ask you is: Will we ever see boards equality? NA boards are the place where everything relevant happens (nothing against the red posts where you provide informations in cases of the usual server problems). PBE? NA. All lead designers? NA. Threads about opinions regarding champ VU/TGU/etc.? NA. When all we had was GD, the developers at least tried to make it look like the opinions of different servers matter (think off Xelnaths copy´n´pasted thread regarding the Xerath rework 4 years ago). But eversince we got these "boards" everything NA didn´t matter. Will we ever see a change to that? Sincerely, A summoner.

: Watch Krepo, Zven and Mithy host a bot lane stream for H2K vs Fnatic!
Is it strange that I enjoyed the bot lane stream more than the one where they cover the whole game? Mithy and Zven where so natural and didn´t hesitate to simply say "Yea that was pretty bad by FNC", whereas I just get triggered whenever I hear Quickshot call something an "Oopsie".
: What is your unpopular opinion regarding something in league of legends?
The old champion select was more than fine, and the new one really isn´t worth the queue times we have now.
Husker (EUW)
: He just wants to fly-by and say hi, so that we always remember his sacrifice :(
Maybe he´ll be back in a few years, when Arcade Ezreal gets a VU^^. Love how the old one got incorporated there.
: 1) Set primary support 2) Hit queue 3)???? 4) In-game Yours truly Support main
I main support in rankeds - not in any other game mode... But just not been feeling the ranked drive lately. Another support main^^.
: for me the timer gets lower for every time i play and you need to have super good internet for it to work {{sticker:zombie-brand-mindblown}}
Oh my internet is fine: VDSL 50.000 (with the whole 5 Mb/s downloading). Just won´t play LoL so often these days appearently :P.
: Well there is always the option of blind pick if you detest waiting so much
yea maybe I´ll just do that :P . Still sucks though -.- .
Xhyr (EUW)
: Well sad to know red posts are still on the low, but I do think they keep track of new posts and stuff. I used to watch gosu only as adc back when I wanted to play adc all the time, didn't watch many others. Guess we all have to move on sometime. Actually, in game a lot has changed. The que screen, loading screen, map colours etc, champions, interface everything........... However, it came back to me. Suddenly in mid of the game I was hitting space to center on my character automatically, and I suddenly realized yeah we can do that...I was amused by my brain :D
I meant the ingame community behaviour that hasn´t changed^^. And I honestly think it´s good that Riot has now more or less officially abandoned the EUW boards. Everything is better than Xelnath copy´n´pasting his NA post about the Xerath rework, and completely ignoring ALL feedback the EU GD provided.

I don't know .. yeah maybe its just dynamic queue. I for one hate blind pick. It feels to me as outdated and has bad design. Its like racing for position which even if you call out first there is no guarantee you will get it and you cannot report people for that either. It is filled with trolls. I played 1 game in blind pick yesterday because DQ time was too long. Our 'gragas support' pretty much trolled us then went afk resulting in loss. I don't understand why riot has still kept blind pick when we have DQ. Heck even teambuilder was much better thant this.
I kinda agree and disagree with what you said :P . Many like the new champ select with the role selection before you queue up. But the old system wasn´t as bad as ppl make it out today. I mean, in season 3 I still managed to main mid with the old system - short queue times, 90 % of the time I´d get mid (in over 300 games iirc). ___________________________________________________________ Trolls are sadly in every queue :S .
Askir (EUW)
: just restart the queue every few minutes I think it is just bugged.
If I do that it just makes me do 3 intervalls of 5 min {{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}}
: I got 999Wins do i get to play with a Rioter?
You´d need to post this in the NA boards.
Nherax (EUW)
: This game gets better by every patch
I don´t see what´s wrong with it {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}} ! At least be happy you got in a game, and didn´t have to wait +16 min without popping the queue once -.-' .
Nar7ia (EUW)
: I am having exactly the same problem. It used to take 2-5 mins to find a game when DQ was released. I just came back recently after a few months break and now I have to literally wait 15 mins to find game sometimes o.O I am getting that 'game is dead' type of feeling but then again I find games under 2-3 mins in blind pick so not sure.
So you think it´s maybe the new champion select? It´s true though, I like Blind Pick more anyway - maybe I´ll try that!

Xhyr (EUW)
: Back after two years...
The community? Well the fairly "popular" figures are either still doing their thing (Sp4zie/Falconshield/Gbay99/etc.), or have quit LoL (GrossGore/Tyler1/Donkey/etc.). The boards are finally the way they are supposed to be. The only red posts on the EUW boards are from Eambo who still thinks he´s a wrenchman, and almost all relevant discussions/fanmade-stuff are over in the NA boards. Ingame though nothing much changed.
: Sad thing is that he isnt white-knighting. He's just telling the truth how rank isn't based on matchmaking, MMR is.
But tbh I´m kinda salty when I go to the boards. Most of the time I start browsing them when my queue time exceeds the 10 min mark in normals with "fill" as secondary. So don´t pay too much attention to me.
: Sad thing is that he isnt white-knighting. He's just telling the truth how rank isn't based on matchmaking, MMR is.
Yea in this thread at least. I was referring to my overall impression of his answers. Here´s one thing that´s simply white-knightning: > Before Dynamic Queue was introduced, we saw threads almost daily popping up with complaints that you couldn't queue up with more than 1 extra person in ranked. > So if they remove dynamic queue and introduce solo queue again, the only thing that will change is that people will demand dynamic queue back, instead of solo queue. Especially the first paragraph simply made me mad, seeing that I´ve been around for years (in GD and before), and he is simply lying.
: I, also have no clue what the problem is. I'm still wondering even after reading all the comments. Apparently someone didn't get that Matchmaking is based on MMR. I agree with you completely about this, and sorry that this guy is being as ignorant as he is.
TBH I just get sick from Hansi whiteknighting. Not even because I think what he says is wrong, but simply because it´s so distustingly cliché.
Hansiman (EUNE)
: Before Dynamic Queue was introduced, we saw threads almost daily popping up with complaints that you couldn't queue up with more than 1 extra person in ranked. So if they remove dynamic queue and introduce solo queue again, the only thing that will change is that people will demand dynamic queue back, instead of solo queue.
> Before Dynamic Queue was introduced, we saw threads almost daily popping up with complaints that you couldn't queue up with more than 1 extra person in ranked. That´s bogus. I´ve been a boarder (and before that GD´ler) for about 3 or 4 years. Not ONCE was there a time where ppl complained **DAILY** about some kind of dynamic queue, like we are experiencing it now with soloQ. > So if they remove dynamic queue and introduce solo queue again, the only thing that will change is that people will demand dynamic queue back, instead of solo queue. Supersticious AF. Blizzard went back on the dynamicQ, and noone is swarming them with daily "pls give us back our ranked dynamicQ, so we can experience a whole meaningless system once more".

Tbh I think that you WATCHING pros play your champs would help you improve a lot more. Try to imitate their playstyle, while slowly working on your mechanics to be able to do so.
Eveninn (EUW)
: Most sound good, but I honestly disagree with rewards. Upvotes should not be here to be farmed or something (same with followers if they were to come). They should be simply here to show agreance/promote good content. And people should be here because they enjoy being here, not because of some possible rewards. Negative boards points don't sound good to me either. Tbh, I'd rather see downvotes removed than see anything other that equal 'minus points'. (kinda just stole that idea from someone, but it's too good to not mention) --------- The whole following and stuff is a bit... I'm actually not sure how this would turn out. I can't really think of any downsides tho, so it would seem nice to have.
> Upvotes should not be here to be farmed or something I actually laughed! "Upvote for one refund per season!" "Daily reminder XYZ!" "SoloQ" Oh, and : _laughing fish_: "I found a meme and relate it to lol"
: You are the first pick. What is your flexpick/safepick for your main roles?

: Good morningz!
Tbh I dislike your posts in general. I don´t think there´s a need to blog on the boards. But admist the overall negativity that is displayed (in the vocal part of the community) in the last time, I´ll even upvote and comment.
: wut, autoattack to take the shield down? did i miss something?
tbh if you count stuff like Fiora E, Garen Q, Trundle Q, etc, as AA, then they indeed CAN take down the shield.

Well, you can pay for insurance policy for getting abducted and impregnated by alliens. (Yes, even if you are male) This is abusing someone, who basicly gets nothing in return, but lacks clear judgement to see it. Its like supporting a "witch doctor" , who claims money for healing others with spiritual magic. While most of his "patients" will usually be giving their money absolutely willingly, this does not make it less wrong. should I give more examples?
There are as many examples as there are stupid people :D ! All I´m saying is, let the stupid ppl be taken advantage of. Not my loss.
DaveOneGo (EUNE)
: Thanks!
Just to clarify though: - Boosting someone is really only when someone logs in someone elses account! - Playing DynamicQ with Dia+ smurfs is essentially A'OK. (Just because many ppl go about saying "getting boosted by your friends" etc... Playing with them is not getting boosted)
: I think that people who struggle playing against silvers and getting 0/8/0 as support, should not teach others how to play the game. ~ 300 ranked games in silver and currently gold 5 ? Do you honestly believe that this will be helpful?
Come on, everyone is free to try out whatever he likes^^. And if someone would be willing to pay him for his "services": Yea why not :P .

The audience **wanting **cams, and **needing **cams are different things. Take f.e. Nightblu3 - almost never uses his cam anymore Or Sp4zie who only integrates it in his stream-derps. The usage of cams is best, when it has a purpose (for qtpie the purpose is to let his audience bathe under his gaze)!
