In this inconvenience I have been able to experience life. Things I have done: - Read a book - Finished my university degree - Got married - Became father to 12 beautiful children - Taught my great-grandchild to ride a bike Life is great!

: But then riot wouldn’t get anywhere... remember this is something we have asked for plenty of times in the past, and this is the realistic form it has to take. So Riot have listened to us and provided the realistic version of what we asked for... and we now don’t want it. That’s the thing, we don’t know what’s realistic or not, so what we ask for doesn’t mean it will take the form of what appears. And if Riot did only what we told them to do the game would be dead by now. Customers don’t know best, and their views are too varied to be fully useful... riot have to innovate and do what they feel is right... And if this is a failure and they make a loss it won’t kill them, but they will notice it’s a failure and improve... exact same as chromas
I do not know what you have been smoking, but I think the majority has never asked for anything such as Eternals, as most info was already available. The thing we want are BETTER and HARDER missions. Not something only OTPs want to BM in game...
: You say that but don’t forget the purpose of why league was created in general was to make money... As for eternals they are only being sold cause riot had to buy tech to actually get the unique ones working (as there’s nothing in place to track individual spells hitting), the basic ones that are going for BE didn’t need tech so they didn’t cost as much for riot to make. That’s the entire reason it’s being sold, cause it’s the only way they can validate the price they had to pay to make them
They should've run it by their playerbase in some sort of poll first to see if there is animo to begin with. Now they want to sell things they've bought to make up for their failure. E.G look at an entire different game: RuneScape did a major %%%% up with their game (RS3). Then they decided to re-launch RS 2007 version. EVERY update they do there is ran by the players in polls. I don't say to do the exact same, but these kind of features they might want to check first.
: True but they are for BE and it’s gotten to the point where I’ve gotten all the champions I care about... so not like I’m wasting anything
Yeah, same here. But that actually goes against the purpose of why Eternals were developed... to make money. If you get what I mean
: are you a streamer or a popular guy who will bring a lot of new people to Lol? probably no so that's the reson of no invite :D
: Riot Promised Us More Game Modes But They Have Not Delivered!
Nice post! I agree on this matter. Check out this post as well: https://boards.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/champions-gameplay-en/Ec5iFtVo-discussion-thread-about-riots-envisioned-future-please-join-to-give-your-opinion I already have quite some upvotes, and I want the post to stay "hot" for as long as possible so Riot has to respond at some point!
: In their defense, some of the topics discussed here are about Riot's future, which will be covered in their stream on 16th of October for their anniversary. However, I bet it will contain about the following info: Riot: "In pre-season we will say our goodbyes to Twisted Treeline. We will also add more champions to TFT, to make the buffs less confusing. Moreover, NEW SKINS. Missions will only help new players obtain champions faster" AKA, we will not gain anything next season, only lose lose lose
I feel that way too... The awful part of their anniversary is that they have sent out invitations to join them at that date. They have not send an invite to me. Personally I find this sad as I have been actively playing this game since season 2 (Darius release), season in and out. Am I not important enough to join in their conversation?

: and in a perfect world they should be capable of carrying if they get ahead maybe not as hard as an adc or a mage but i would like to not be my teams %%%%% despite playing absolutely perfectly
perfect world is LEC, which is Riot's purpose to nerf and buff
: Not sure yet, will likely grab one of the BE ones for sion, but I do want to see what the actual missions for the unique ones are first as they are still in the draft stage and I’m not quite happy with my main’s ones atm.
Fair enough, but the BE ones are pretty much statistics from stats sites
: Hey everyone! This is indeed legit - but was meant for only a limited number of players. Sadly, due to a bug, it ended up being seen by a lot more people than intended
Hold up... so I am not even invited despite playing this game with commitment for almost 9 years???

: you can't play tanks into conq in solo q and even if you somehow get an autofill top and smash him you still can't carry with a tank there are 4 "tanks" in top 30 played champions shen at 10th place with 5.7% play rate Shen has a really strong early game that allows him to win lane in solo q and ahs the option of opting into damage to have a really strong split push game (but that means he isn't going tank so you can safely assume that the stat isn't accurate) after that at 15th palce you have malphite at 5% play rate but he as well goes ap damage lately and 1 shots your backline after that at 29th you got chogath who goes ap hp stacking to 1 shot your carries and at 30th poppy the only real tank that goes tank and not some janky build both at 2.5% play rate oh and poppy is used as a hard counter to akali/irelia/sylas so her value is even higher and still 2.5% play rate yes tanks are doing completely fine in soloq
I am with you on this. What I meant was that tanks aren't particularly bad, but their carry potential is not good compared to non-tanks. Therefore no one is interested, unfortunately
: Wait, there are going to be less RGMs? That sucks bigtime...{{sticker:sg-janna}}
Less... If we are lucky. I've read posts saying it will not return, but I refuse to believe that.
: > This feature will count the hits LIVE, meaning it will give the player information on the whereabouts of enemies in a potentially unwarded bush Most skill shots allow this anyway, they stop when they hit a champion, or have sound effects that play when hit regardless of vision. And if you look at which skill shots are gonna be tracked they all fall into these catagories... so they can alrwady be used to scout bushes.

: To be fair, it's not really a threat, I just don't want to play a game that doesn't feel like League of Legends to me. I'll enjoy these next months playing the 3v3 I love without thinking too much about it. Besides, the TT community is much less toxic, so it's a pleasure to play 3v3 as the curtain call of this 8 years adventure :)
I've enjoyed TT a lot as well. It is especially really fun in a premade party. I think 3v3 also lost a lot of interest with players when Riot removed actual TEAM-games. Although it has been replaced by ranked-flex, it does not serve the same goal. For 5v5 this void has partly been filled with Flex and Clash (if it will ever work), but especially Clash does not exist for TT. The take-over of Riot by another owner has made them sellouts, in my opinion. Less effort to make more money.

: i mean the only tanks being played in pro play are supports that purely offer initiation and sejuani and shen shen being a very specific pick that has always been oriented towards team play and gets hard smashed in lane and here we are riot buffing darius an already impossible to deal with champion when playing a tank fiora early game (where tanks have the only opening at beating her) and liyandri like ap damage wasn't already a massive issue for tanks to deal with :) sad day to be a tank main
The tanks played in pro-play are being used for their essence. However, often this "essensce" does not apply on SoloQ/duoQ games. Pro-games are played by 10 people that fully understand the game and can therefore use champs such as tanks to their fullest extend. Though, this is not the case in 95% of the games below Master-tier. This leads to the thought of tanks being "not strong enough to carry".
: i hope that riot will see this and will do something about it . https://boards.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/off-topic-en/3IsQXiNh-odyessey2 it might help too?
I highly doubt it, they kind of ignore forums according to most people. This post is being upvoted in EUW and NA, neither of them have any Riot-based response.

: so tanks are currently shit tier riot: we want better options for these champions to deal with tanks https://sports-images.vice.com/images/2017/01/25/when-nick-young-the-basketball-player-met-nick-young-the-meme-body-image-1485378510.jpg?crop=1xw:0.6590777262180975xh;center,center&resize=1200:*
The emphasis will mostly be on the burst champions as they are the most popular. However it is sad to see that happening.
: damn right it isn't. There should be at least 4 of them a month imo, 2 permanent, 2 rotating
Antenora (EUW)
: Those 9.19 changes videos are now out of date. Riot has changed the changelist for Riven since then.
Still, I would dare to take the bet that if no skin would come out, no buff would be applied
xScarfy (EUW)
: Very well structured and thought out post! I agree with everything you said {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}} I think should post this in the NA boards too. A lot more people are going to see this there and maybe even a rioter may join the discussion!
I just posted it in General Discussion on NA boards as well!
: The Rotating game modes were the BIGGEST lost to the community imo. Yes, balancing can be annoying but aat least you had those game modes to fall back on. Now? Not so much :/
The only other modes will be TFT and ARAM now, and thats not very versatile, imo
Goomboo (EUW)
: Ever since I learned about Twisted Treeline disappearance, I've been only playing 3v3 flex, completely boycotting the other main gamemodes. And, when 2019 comes to an end, I'll probably stop playing Lol altogheter as it is my only way of voicing my dissatisfaction. I don't like where Riot is going with the game, removing skill-based modes in favor of a probablity-based mode. I'm not saying TFT is all about luck (even though it was highly unbalanced when I played it), but it definitely feels like a card game in the way that you're forced to play with what you have rather than with what you want. And playing the way you want is the very reason I found LoL appealing in the first place. I don't want to complain about balance, because I know how hard it is to balance a competitive game, and even more if commercial choices are involved. The only thing I complain about is the lack of risks taken by Riot, and their lack of lucidity about new stuff they put in the game. I still love playing this game, no matter how unbalanced it is or how toxic the players are. But I'll be forced to stop playing it beacause it's becoming something different from what it originally was.
I have thought about quitting as well, but I'll have to see what pre-season is gonna bring and what the plans are for 2020. If they are going on on the same path I will most likely quit as well. However, threatening with quitting is not my cup of tea anymore, since they won't be bothered by ca. 10 people quitting compared to the ones that will continue playing the game. Hopefully they will experience a whiplash with the release of Eternals...

: i also never played invasion, but i did play oddysey, and holy shit i love it to this day thanks riot for removing it
I honestly feel like they do not listen to anything the community gives as feedback. They only look at the pro's/streamers. But in my opinion they do not represent the majority of the community. Oddysey came in a really shit season, so I think the positive feedback on it is overwhelmed by the negatives of the season
: Not only the event is a disappointment for me. SG Zoe is as well. It feels incomplete (ex. just using the basic voice lines), and part of me says that it doesn't fit Zoe at all (as a result). I like the trailer though. I almost believe they're better at creating an anime (short) than coding the game.
I haven't bought any of the skins yet. I was thinking about rakan tho.. However, with these new skins they could've done so much more effort into the gameplay. It was a good setup for it...
: im really disappointed too, they didn't even bother to add the star guardian minions to summoners rift :(
They have put the absolute least effort into this event, out of all events. SG should be one of the biggest events of the year IMO. Cause it's becoming such a big skinline

: Why would you even put effort into completing the missions? You had 2 weeks to complete 5 missions that are all "kill X things or play 5 games".
Maybe hoping it would get better
Zæl (EUW)
: The fricking random cats vs dogs event got much cooler missions than SG. What the hell is going on at Riot? {{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}} lmao.
I would hardly even call them missions. It isn't related to SG in the slightest way
: They never said there was going to be an event. So obviously its going to be a disappointing "event" to you. Cuz it aint one. Next one should be harrowing or smth cant remember which one they confirmed.
At the start of the season they highlighted the events they were going to do. At that time they still were elaborating on PvE. That said, they refer to these mission-thingies as events themselves.
Akeminka (EUNE)
: I miss Invasion so badly {{sticker:sg-soraka}} I want to play it again, even if only one time {{sticker:sg-janna}} I also miss SG Ahri announcer...
: why do you expect such thing? you think they can make efforts on things that doesn't supposed to grant them money? that was ~~DRAVEN DRAVEN ~~ days. those days gone... you should expect 250 mana play 5 games missions now
One of the signs that Riot doesn't seem to know what their playerbase wants
: i have something to say here. what if they're gonna add more missions next week for the same event, or gonna make the next event bigger as maybe this event was mainly targeted at new players? so far the missions look really easy and simple
They won't the last mission says "complete ALL 5 missions"
: > [{quoted}](name=NoGloryFound,realm=EUW,application-id=39gqIYVI,discussion-id=Ei0LmYop,comment-id=,timestamp=2019-09-13T01:41:45.438+0000) > The only missions that were close to challenging so far have been the in the Odyssey event. ora ora ora cmn, the last mission was more than "close" to challenging, and the ziggs+sona as well (after the hotfix),....
Fair point! But what I was mainly aimig at is the easiness of every othef mission :)
: Just unistal lol
Honestly the game is in a pretty good spot rn, meta-wise. Best we have had since season 7 1/2, IMO

: You just got LP. When there are issues impacting a large group of players, to the point where ranked is disabled, loss prevented is activated which hinders the losing side from losing LP, and the winning side will get half of their intended LP.
I got the same thing. But it would be nice if we got notified about this maintainance....
nezarking (EUW)
: sivir rework and ryze rework ults plz
My friend, if you really think that you should consider to stop playing Sivir in general. If you play her well she is quite a beast with Q and W in teamfights...
: My main question is even if you get autofilled lets say support/top/jungle. Your diamond but your support/top/mid role is plat. I still think a diamond (in any role) has better overal skills like map awareness, decision making, last hitting, wave management and so on. So how will the system be closing this gap? I couldn't really find good information about this. If you see some streamers ( in diamond) they get sometimes off role and still doing great where the average autofilled support soloq who cry like a baby that she/he cant play support, which is the easiest autofilled position in my opinion. I think if the system doesnt 'buff' the mmr (like when it's the case when ur duo q with someone) than the games in season 9 will be stomp. Because every offrole/autofill player will be now not your mmr enemy/teammate but a (much?) higher mmr player... Anyone more information about this or thoughts? {{sticker:sg-lux-2}}
The aspect you are mentioning will only be a problem in the first couple of weeks of the new season. Because there will be splash-LP slowly boosting your off-roles when playing in your main role. On top of that, winning in an off-role will gain you even more LP. So before you know it your off roles will most likely be around Plat 1/Dia 4 while your main role is approximately Dia 1/2. In short, the problem you are mentioning will occur in the first few weeks, but eventually it will even out.
Hansiman (EUW)
: Again, the dev diary actually specifically mentions this: It starts low, but ramps up if you keep losing.
Yes, I have read and heard about that. But in my opinion they should start at a bit higher LP amount to begin with. Especially at the start of the testing this aspect will backfire if not made significant. Not unless these people start to really notice the ramping they will quite likely not care.
Hansiman (EUW)
: It means, in the case you presented, that if you lose when autofilled, you're going to lose some LP on your main roles as well. This is to prevent people from trolling.
They will have to tune it to a significant level though. Losing 5 LP is not going to be much of a loss for these particular players.
Adama (EUW)
: I wonder this too.
I don't know whether this would've been possible or it is going to be like this, but it would be really nice if so. I hope that they are going to take the positional ranks into account in the background for matchmaking. If they would do so you will obviously gain less LP for your off-role, but you are much less likely to be placed in an unwinnable game.
HitYourHead (EUNE)
: It's simple They advertise it for such long time, when in fact it's just a test and they decide to not test it here so evrithign works as before, if somehow during the season they introduce it then we will see, as everything new we can be sure (even after they test it) it will be a mess. I think they track old rank only for regions that test new one so in case they revert to old rank to have it, for us I think is no tracking, so I don't know when position ranking will be introduced how they will place us on other roles since our weakest roels should have worse rank then our single rank in which we played mainly our primary roles.
They have actually confirmed that for regions like EUW they are gonna be keeping track of positional ranks. Therefore, if the system change goes through EUW is rapidly swapped to the new system. However, they do not mention HOW they are gonna keep track, and IF the matchmaking will already be adapted according to the new system.
