: Tell us your Ranked 2018 stories!
I dislike ranked, it puts too much pressure on me and I don't feel like it's fun. My pal convinced me to play ranked with him at least for a few games though. So I decided to play only Kayn, since I enjoy the champ so much. After my Promos (8-2) I was placed Gold 3, even though last season I was placed Gold 5 and stopped at that. After multiple games I skipped Gold 2 and landed on Gold 1 with a winrate of about 80% Same way I rushed through and was placed Plat 5, which was enough for me. I lost 2-3 games then on Plat 5, but had that shield after being promoted. After a win and another 23Lp gained by that (IKR?!). I only played two decay games, which I lost both. Next game I'll have to play will be at the 11th of November, so just shortly before the season ends. I'm at 0LP after my last loss a month ago, so I'm afraid I'll drop to Gold 1 right before the season ends. The End.{{sticker:slayer-pantheon-popcorn}}

: im the only one who learned how to read? riot ppl said in multiple topics and it was on the news too that they have to implement all gamemodes on the new client, the first was poro king, and it was there for 4 weeks because it was christmas and since riot devs are ppl and have families/holidays too they put up poro king so at least you can do something, the next gamemode which is up now is ascension and im pretty sure they are working on the next one
First of all They had a lot of time to put more Urf into the RGMQ while we still had the old Client Secondly Think about it logically, what is more difficult to implement. Aram, with the Snowball mechanic that summons the Poro King and all those special abilities you may give him with snacks. OR Urf, with just the [URF Buff](https://www.lol-smurfs.com/images/upload/blog/2016/04/URFBuff.jpg) that is just mere number tweaks

: Ikr, it's not like they have to remake the whole mode ;-;
URF is great as it is, exactly. ArURF as well, it prevents to have always Shaco/Sona/Hecarim/etc. in your games.

: >Then there wasn't Urf but Draven Day in 2016 and Random Game Mode Queue got introduced. Well they did say URF was definitely not going to be in April. >So we got Ascension , a mode that stayed the same and NEVER changed with new items or maybe also having random picks in champ select (And Riot stated they don't want to repeat the same thing over and over again, hence the change in Urf with ArURF, but 8 The thing with Ascension is that people don't tend to pick the same champions time after time. You tend to get quite a bit of variation. Unlike URF, where you'd probably see the same 9 champions each and every game. >Then Poro King , a mode that was 4 times the same, and 4 times the changed version, either way, it was overall 8 times as well, during the holidays it was already 4 times- in the time span of a month there was more of Poro King than Urf in a whole year. Three reasons. One, it was Christmas and Legend of the Poro King is basically League's Christmas mode. Two, not every single game mode is tuned to work on the beta client (there's no point in adding one mode to the beta and another to the legacy one). At the time, the only modes that worked were Legend of the Poro King and Nexus Siege (now you can add Ascension into the mix). Three, barely anyone was working on the game during the Christmas period (which is why there was a huge gap between 6.24 and 7.1). > I don't understand why they seem to hate URF so much and deny its existence. It's a very polarising game mode. A lot of people love it, a lot of people hate it. I'm sure Riot would rather put out a mode that is less polarising more often.

I didn't mind Draven Day, was pretty fun for about 4-5 games. > The thing with Ascension is that people don't tend to pick the same champions time after time. You tend to get quite a bit of variation.

A lot of people love it, a lot of people hate it. I'm sure Riot would rather put out a mode that is less polarising more often. There are enough people that also dislike Ascension/PoroKing, people that hate certain random Game modes are there for every mode. There is only one certainty, which is that URF is the most popular of all the modes.
: it was Poro King for 4 week because Riot were away over the holidays e.g, they weren't doing anything to the game over the holidays
I am aware - Yet there is no reason to not put Urf in those 4 weeks. Or at least AFTER those 4 weeks
Rioter Comments
: 2 words: Time difference
"does it hurt so much to enable it at midnight for each region?" Im aware OCE is like 7 hours ahead of my time - still no excuse, they could've released it at midnight for OCE and at midnight for my time (CET)

Didn't read. Write not in all caps and maybe I'll actually find it read-worthy

: urf?
This is stupid, here it's 8:30 am now - and I woke up to find out that Urf is not enabled and they play in OCE for about 6 hours know? Why is OCE allowed to play so much earlier?!?! You did enough PBE testing to know that it works, so just enable it everywhere at once!
