: I loved this map soo much :(.... Sadly they never updated it.If I count all my normal , bots and ranked games on TT I have between 250-350 Loved the concept of 3v3 and it was amazing for inviting the 2 best friends to play with them on a saturday night.Shame on them that they prefer a cash grab auto chess over an original and iconic map
It was the best mode outside of SR. ARAM can be fun but generally it's too toxic. 3v3 at least was still an actual good game mode. There were problems in the top elo though. But there are problems in the top elo's period. 3v3 or not.
: Why did they remove 3vs3? oh well buy league see you if 3vs3 comes back
I feel the same but sadly I am loving 5v5 at the moment and this new seasons looks somewhat interesting.
EutDesu (EUW)
: This is just too damn sad.. 3vs3 will be missed indeed. It just doesn't make any sense to me to remove it, just like it didn't make sense to remove the 1vs1-2vs2 and dominion maps aswell. You lost players when dominion got shut down and you will lose players this time aswell, might not be many, but they are out there. Literally just talked with a friend yesterday that havn't played lol since dominion, he wanted to play some 3vs3, and 'POP' It's gone. Now i will prob never play lol with him again, nice. Riot is gimping their own community, gj.
Yeah but bro they just lost 35 million players in 2 months time. They really don't care about the maybe 2 million regular 3v3 players. Which is likely less than 1 million really. Spread throughout all the servers. I can imagine on some servers 3v3 wasn't played altogether in general. Considering how small the high elo community was even on EUW it would have be virtually non-existent on servers like Thailand or Vietnam just to name a few. I believe even EUNE 3v3 players left EUNE just so they would have something resembling a community on EUW.
: Stop playing so that you are not supporting Riot in this.
As we know, companies don't stop existing even if 80% of the player base quits. WoW is a great example of this. And clearly Riot doesn't give 2 craps if even the entire 3v3 community quit league. That is why they make a decission like this. Even if those few tens of thousands of players quit league it will be still an economic win for Riot because they don't have to perform the maintenance and balancing for 3v3. Balancing it rarely ever had at all. Even when certain champs were weak in 5v5 they will still receive special nerfs in 3v3 and still be god tier picks.
lennert05 (EUW)
: It was the best gamemode in league to play, have some fun and to meet new people, will miss it so bad. I hope they will do something with the map to make a new gamemode out of it or if they make it a custom where people who love it can play in.
Nexus Blitz is actually based largely on the old TFT map.
sTeN8 (EUW)

It's an absolute disgrace. As a fairly serious 3v3 player I already saw it coming especially when in the end certain things in the mode were unsustainable and created quite a few toxic meta's. But I am immediately going to give 3v3 some props because that ''hyper jungler + mid support meta'' that was quite toxic for a few weeks this season originated from 3v3. Where indeed it was also not that fun to deal with because the game is entirely focussed around that 1 player with an overabundance of gold. But to remove 3v3 is just the lazy way out. Meanwhile TFT which has nothing to do with league of legends gets to stay AND it gets an official rank. I am sorry, but 3v3 elo was always a lot more prestigious than TFT and will always be. TFT players are like the joke in League of Legends at the moment. Bragging about being ''plat'' or even gold because in actual league of legends Aka 5v5 ,3v3 and heck even ARAM they are usually extremely bad. It's really quite the trend at the moment. Plat 1 in TFT, bronze in the rest of league of legends. I am currently just utterly shocked even if I saw it coming. It is no wonder the game is losing popularity in general(35 million players lost rofl). Even if the community of 3v3 wasn't as large as the other modes it was still thousands of players maybe even millions. Warcraft 3 after all these years is still going strong on a ENTIRE community of some 5-10k. Ironically I am currently enjoying 5v5 again quite a bit where I was pretty burned out from it previously. Hence 3v3 was actually a great mode that let you deal with your own problems in a setting where there was less chance for others to completely ruin the game. Carrying a 3v3 is clearly easier than carrying a 5v5. But really if it wasn't for the fact I actually like 5v5 currently I could well have quit league over this stunt.
: So Goddess Queen skins?
Lol, that is an option I hadn't even thought about yet and would indeed be far worse. A double demotion.
: an oxymoron is when you use two adjectives that are opposite, like a giant dwarf, God Queen isn't an oxymoron and there is nothing wrongwith God Queens, don't drag PC stuff here
I don't give 2 flying shits about being politically correct. My country isn't that insecure about themselves to begin with. I know perfectly fine what an oxymoron is. It is then for you to figure out what somebody means. But to keep it short it would be a demotion of what otherwise would be some kind of supreme being. It is a supreme being, but it doesn't even hold the highest rank. See Polish woman who was named ''King''. Sigh.
: Dammit, can't vote for no and for I'm a douche... Anyway, there is literally no difference between God-King and God-Queen except that the latter part of the word is differently gendered. A queen is not inferior to a king in terms of power. In no way is it an oxymoron. And having female skins be named "God-King" would feel rather odd.
No a Queen is a lower rank in the feudal hierarchy. Basic stuff you should know before pretending to know you know, anything. xD

: Remove aram So I got into aram and I got a stupid champion. There was an Mmr difference and we lost. Please remove this gamemode
It's funny because Riot is actually going to alter ARAM. So even if you think you're being funny by acting silly on purpose, you're actually not being silly at all. It's also not about the difference in MMR. My mmr is so high I rarely get matched in proper elo but 6 people of 1 mmr and 4 of a completely different mmr isn't fun for ANYONE. high elo players don't play blind picks so they can win the game in 14 minutes.
Anine (EUW)
: It's hard to remove blind pick as it's the only mode you can play at the very start, and due to the ban/pick system if they lift the requirements of having access to a certain amount of champions in draft pick, there's a real (but semi unrealistic) chance that all your champs in a certain role will be banned or picked. That said though, I do agree with you, blind pick is somehow worse than most of my drafts. I mostly play on EUNE these days and went for a blind pick 'cos I was bored of waiting for draft pick to open and let me tell you, never again. Too much flaming, too much arguing about what role to go. Based on previous blind picks on EUW, too high a chance of people just straight up trolling because 'who takes blind pick seriously anyway'.
They can just solve that by creating something better for new players. Or simply make the champion rotation larger.
: yes, but replace it with a mode that has: no banphase+ everybody picks at the same time, but with definied roles
Yeah maybe, why not. But not for new players, they need to get a proper idea of what League is about.
Èclair (EUNE)
: I played blind pick from the very start and just recently _(well, during s4...)_ started playing drafts because my friends prefer so. I don't think that it matters for new players, especially that they have no idea how to compose their team and thus cannot take advantage from the draft as it's core feature allows you to customize your team based on opposing picks. It would be useless and waste of time for them to play draft. The only pro of this mode is that you have assigned roles from the get-go and you don't have to call. But the new players also have mild understanding on what role is and how to play it. Not to mention that game doesn't allow you to play draft untill you collect 20 champions for a reason - if stars allign and people ban 10 champions you own and pick 9 remaining you'll be unable to pick anything. I know it's rare and quite a speculation but still, you're left with nothing to pick if something like this happens.
Yeah but they can just solve that problem for new players. Give them a seperate draft pick or give them a bigger champ rotation.
: No, thank you. If you don't like the mode, don't play it and.... geez, I feel like I'm repeating myself here. I find it very interesting that people like you always want to remove completely what you don't like. And what is it with you people constantly spending time looking at your enemy rating or whatever before the game? Just play the game, that's what blind pick is for. From my experience, people constantly looking at others rating or whatever are usually the worst because they bring that every time someone makes a mistake : -- "look at that _rank_ player lol trash" -- "mastery 7 boosted" -- "blablabla mmr uninstall"
Actually there are multiple modes that I don't like but I feel like Blind Pick actually hurts new players and their expectation of league. That is why it should just be removed so that they can only play Draft Pick on summoners rift. I didn't say anything to my team about Elo. But when I see everyone is unranked or silver 5 on my team I do sometimes wanna know what is going on. Especially when I play alone because as it is, my solo MMR is even higher than my Ranked MMR. And it's just strange how I randomly got missplaced like that. At any rate I am not even sure why I checked it back then. Point is that I did and I saw that my teams MMR was 1200 which includes my MMR which boosts it. And the enemy team was 1800 MMR. Because every single one of them was in my own elo. Now I said nothing but the game enfolded exactly as I had predicted. I was doing my very best and actually was the only player who was having any positive impact. The problem was that the 4 other players all concluded that despite everything it was obviously the junglers fault for not being able to play 3 champions at once.
: Haven't checked my recent teammates leagues, but clown fiesta they usually show is spectacular .. and sad, because i'm forced to participate
This. It just feels like that compared to the past it is a lot more detrimental if you don't join your team even though you know it's going to end badly. Atleast before you could just let your teammate walk into that 5v3 trap and it would be ok aslong as you survived. Granted a few champs still have that quality.
: I play a lot of blind picks. Currently 3200+ games. So I know what I am talking about (at least I think I do). 1. You cannot actually remove blind pick, as it is the only mode where you can actually pick whatever champ you want (example being zoe and zed constantly banned on ranked, probably and normal drafts as well). 2. It's not that bad when you pick your role. Its first write, first go to that lane basis. Sometimes there are people who don't agree who said first, but it doesn't happen that often. 3. Flame? Yeah.. it's kind of a standard thing there. A lot of people flame there, but it's a good way to learn how to not to get tilted and maybe finally learn how to use a mute button. 4. It's really good if you want to practise a champion without getting countered. Who wants to play 30 mins and 15-20 (depends on the phase of the game) of them taking shit from your lane opponent.. 5. Yeah, mmr mismatch is sometimes just amazing. I'm not talking about being matched with unranked, low silvers or golds ( I was plat last season), but for example today, I got 3 diamonds in my team, which naturally intrigued to check the opponents, and they had 2 diamonds and a master. Last season I had a challenger in enemy team.. Of course. It has some advantages and some disadvantages, but overall, I feel like it's fine. It's nothing compared to ranked, but for chill days or when you feel boosted, tilted or otherwise mentally broken from ranked, this is the place to go. Learn new champions, relax, destroy someone in lane or get destroyed yourself, without losing LP.
Your first point is interesting but there are actually quite a few game modes where you can still just pick what you want. And playing Blind Pick does not automatically mean you get to play what you want. Because other people will lock in their champ before actually calling a role anyway. Which can be the champ you want to play. I didn't say anything about claiming a role. My pc and internet are good so I have zero problems copy paste spamming my role if I feel like it. So let's not go into that because it's all about having good equipment there xD. And not quite without controversy. No the flame is not the core issue, it is that even if you ignore and mute it people will still act towards it. Like you can mute, but you can still see them standing still and you know they are typing instead of playing. All because they get matched up in a game where the overall pace is just way too high. Some people take it like a champ and learn from it. But this team I was talking about many weeks ago basically FF 5 min with all 4 of them. It's funny you talk about being countered because IMO Blind Pick is far worse than Draft pick. Yeah sometimes when you are first pick in draft pick it is going to be really ballsy to pick a champ like Katarina, Yasuo or Vayne. But you can actually still just pull it off if you are confident in those champs. But in blind pick it doesn't matter because you have no idea what you're up against. You can pick Katarina but still get countered by all 5 champions that just happen to be popular to play. And you are also certain your jungler won't care because he had no game plan before entering the game either. Because it is Blind Pick. For me when I don't play ranked I still just play draft pick. It's kind of a core element of being a league player anyway to have multiple champions you can play so you don't get shit on. And in midlane atleast I have 2 or 3 picks I can always play and pretty much not care about who I am up against. And that does not include the flavours of the month like Swain midlane right now.
Vsec Exile (EUNE)
: if they would bring back teambuilder instead of blind pick....then only probleem would be queue times and amount of games youre kicked from xd
Teambuilder as a game mode rotation maybe. But I mean just remove Blind Pick and give new players a lot bigger champion rotation so they don't have the 20 champion problem. Or even give them a temporary Draft Pick mode with just a very small set amount of champions and maybe fewer bans. Like 1 or 2 bans per team. There are many ways around a problem.

Fajerk (EUW)
: The thing is unlike DotA 2, LoL has for several years now regular pro season, with leagues held across the world. Riot rivals established sport leagues, it does not seem feasible, nor meaningful to make ridiculously large prize pool for one tournament during the year. Also not a single team that participates the worlds needs to live off that money, it's pretty much bonus. And when it comes to direct % content contribution towards esports, there is no real reason to make it ever 100% in such setting, at least as long as we talk about content provided by Riot and not directly sold by the teams. Call it greedy as much as you want, but I'm pretty sure just organisation of over month long tournament held in China like this year worlds costs several times more than what the prize pool will be.
I don't think it costs 10s of millions of dollars to host a league of legends tournament. Honestly in some venues during for example LCS spring split finale don't cost a whole lot more than 50k to hire. Just check the EU LCS in Rotterdam. Ahoy doesn't cost 50k a day to hire the main hall and when Riot hires a place for 30-odd days they will not pay the full price for every single day. I don't pretend to know the full price but ''several times the prize pool'' is not something Riot would be able to make a profit on xD. And a lot of venues are less prestigious than you might expect.
: With my comment I tried to point out that there are other more likely causes for OP's issues than worlds. However, I don't have any idea about the exact causes of his issues, nor your issues.
Meanwhile the client is completely broken at the moment. XD
Ìxeas (EUW)
: From the start of it and now, it definitely changed. I feel like it's 65% champ shard and 35% skin shard. When it was introduced, the first month I got more than 5 skin shards and no champ. So yeah, drop rates did change quite a bit.
Yeah when I say 2 skins and 2 champ shards that was the average. Sometimes I easily went 7 skins or so and then only 1 champ. And never more than 2 champ shards a month. Just sneaky how Riot doesn't clarify these things imo.

: I've actually never had this in the 5 years I've played the game and well over 5000 games in total. If happens less than 1 in 5000 games I'd say that's not too much of a big deal. Networking errors happen, even in the most efficiently managed ones.
You must live in South Korea then. I live in The Netherlands and while issues really aren't that common, in 5 years time there will happen a plenthora of different issues. Honestly I even question the merit of your statement because you sound like someone that is just a tad too lucky. xD Impossibly lucky. And yes I have about the same amount of games as you. :)
: Hey SevenKGnomeSize, The problems you are experiencing are most likely not related to worlds, but just coincidence. If the problems were from Riot's side, it would mean that many more players would be reporting issues, which isn't the case. There are not more reports about connection issues than normally. Furthermore, Riot's esports teams and NOC teams are totally seperated. Therefore, the issues you are experiencing can't be caused by less people taking care of the servers. Your connection problems are very likely realted to you or your ISP and not to Riot.
Hmm, yeah thanks for the reply but while I know perfectly fine that it is supposedly unlikely that the two are related. I am honestly not naive enough to accept it as a coincedence. Riot would never admit Worlds affecting their normal servers but it would not be strange at all if they had to cut funds during these big events. At any rate I have experienced this issue in 3 seperate editions of Worlds and on difference PCs aswell as different IP addresses and I have well over 5000 games played too. To me personally it is clear the servers don't run as smoothly at Worlds. And don't tell me that it can ONLY be on my end because it is no great secret that Riot struggles with internet providers and the like. And internet issues really aren't that common where I live. So I am personally get a little tired of this arguement xD. Thanks anyway, I am never getting that game back that just ceased to exist and in my opinion it is far worse than all the players that leave games and don't get banned. :) But shhh, I am a fanboy and Riot is the perfect company xD.

: Thank you for proving yourself wrong yourself, without me even moving a single finger for anything else than just laughing at this. Also fast food and soda drink companies have nothing to do with game company, there's a difference between a real place and a virtual one, and law can do jack shit in virtual one, like I said, and you even confirmed, you will be just laughed at and told that there's nothing that can be done about it, because riot owns the game and can get rid of you any time they please, same way they could tell everyone right now that they are closing the game tomorrow, and close it, without giving a single %%%%. Because it's their game.
If Riot closes the game tommorow they still need to own the patent. Once it runs out someone else can come in and own the company for free. Or more likely someone will just buy that patent so I think this is example is completely void. We are also not talking about some minor company, Riot is so big that it actually has a responsiblity towards society and the economy. Such large companies cannot simply decide to cease to to exist. This is why many companies don't even belong to its original founders anymore because for various reasons they could not manage the company anymore. Infact Riot is already owned for a large percentage by people outside of Riot. It is true that laws are really underdeveloped when it comes to the internet but it is is just that, the internet. It is nothing quite so sophisticated as a ''virtual world''. That also doesn't mean that laws aren't changing and already being written when it comes what happens on the internet. Think about cyber-bullying, something that is much harder to prove than companies denying a proper service and yet cyber-bullying is already punishable by law. People have been put in jail as far back as 2005 for putting comments on the internet, never heard about this kid that threatened to bomb his school or something? There was a 500 000 Dollar bail on his release which an anonimous person paid for the kid. And 2005 is way before Cyber-bullying was illegal. I don't know why you try to come of so strongly, I am not impressed if that's what you think. I am not pretending like it is so straight forward to just ''sue Riot''. And you completely right in saying that game companies have certain rights reserved to them. But you don't seem to be aware of the obligations either. Especially considering you say that people would have a laugh when I basically addressed that myself. Do tell me though what country you live in. I think that will clarify a thing or 2.
: Those are extra, the guaranteed 12 are always the same. Besides, the main way to climb up in honor is just playing, the honors from other players just makes it happen slightly faster. If you don't get honors it make take you a week or two longer to level up, it's not that big a deal.
You don't get them before level 3. The point is also not how easy it is to level up. I would actually prefer this system to completely solve toxicity in League. Which in my opinion is the main idea behind this system. But trust me Riot isn't going to make it overly easy on us to get all these extra keys when they are also releasing ''Missions'' because then there will be quite a few players getting to point of owning all skins in the game without ever paying for them. So it simply can't be too easy. We should already be happy we are even getting boxes with skins in them in the first place.

Lol you are a joke. I didn't take anything out of context, that would actually be quite hard to accomplish in such a simple and short sentence. You don't explain yourself when your sentence isn't even proper grammatically built, talking about condecending. You meant to imply that we get to level 3 at the same pace as getting a Ribbon which is just completely non sensical because there were no ''level ups'' after a Ribbon and there are levels after level 3.

: And how will you take riot to court if they ban you?
I think you want to clarify your question a bit more. I will not take Riot to court, I have never even gotten a restriction let alone a ban. Like I said earlier, it would cost so much money to pay for the lawyers that even people with a good reason will never be able to do it. Unless they are willing to risk paying for their lawyers for the rest of their lives over an account in a video game. Some countries may actually have a good way for you to resolve your issues though, like a 5-15 minute hearing where you can present your issue infront of a judge who will then, most likely, quickly dismiss you. In America they have a system like this where you can just walk into some courthouse and talk to a group of jurors for free. Chances are they won't even respond to you at all except for just saying something plain like, we can't help you. It is a pretty bad system though but it is something atleast. I believe a few years ago some journalists tried to raise the issue of the bad food that schools in America serve. The journalist caused quite the controversy when he was forcefully removed from the courthouse. So you can imagine how little patiences these jurors will have for someone trying to sue a major company. But especially in the USA it is not unheard of because even certain Fast-Food Chains as well as popular Soda Drink Companies are not immune to being sued and actually losing the lawsuit. Resulting in a loss of Millions of Dollars.

Charisma without talking in League. I think you should ponder about what you just said for a while. If you make a good call and people follow you, then you are a ''good'' shotcaller AND people are good at working togheter and listening. But aslong as all of this is done by pings and basic sentences there is little social, let alone Charistmatic about this. In higher Elo generally all 5-10 players in the game know exactly what to do and when to do it. They don't need anyone to tell them. Or maybe if someone is playing really well, players will notice this and be more inclined to listen. There are indeed a few vocal players out there, generally Jungle and Support mains that do go the extra lenght and talk more than normal players. Those are indeed social and if they have some verbal skills aswell you could argue they are charismatic. Anything short of that is just nonsense. Because even then the majority of the flow of the game is dictated by pings and the situation that a team is in. There are no other reasons someone will listen to your calls. Not aslong as there is no Voicechat. I don't mean to sound elitist talking about High Elo really. I just want to talk about the player base that is actually relevant because they know how to play league. In lower Elo if there are no ''smurfs'' in a game there is almost no shotcalling at all because just 1 bad call can lose a game. It is better to just play the game and do what seems most logical at any given time. And everyone always makes atleast 1 bad call every game. Especially in divisions where the game knowledge is really rather poor. I actually started league in a pretty low division and had to work my way up over the course of some 400 games. I think I am in a better position to judge this than someone who never plays ranked. Normal games just don't count.
: From your posts I understand that you think the honor system is a free reward system, that everyone should participate in, so all players can sit at the highest honor for maximum rewards. There are players who disagree with you. Some players think they shouldn't honor players for the sake of honoring (when they believe no one deserved honors), while others don't want to participate in the honor system for whatever reason. No one is under any obligation to honor others. Yes, it can be frustrating when you feel someone deserves honors and no one honors them, but you can hardly blame others for that. The fact you can only honor 1 player is definitely an issue, but an entirely different one from not being able to honor premades. So I really don't understand your passive aggressiveness towards me, because I didn't bring it up. Finally, you say I assume things about people I don't know, but isn't this exactly what you are actually doing? You claim that players who do not honor are lazy, even though they may have very valid reasons for not doing so. You also have a very negative view of younger players, claiming its children who would abuse the honor system. Do you have a source that states younger players abuse the system significantly more than older players? You seem incredibly upset not being able to honor your girlfriend. I would suggest you spend some time outside, cool off a little. You should probably withhold from posting before you have a more objective view on the matter.
Well in another comment I did actually assume that the only other reason may be that some people have a bad PC so it takes them a long time to get back into the end-game lobby. Which may result in them never seeing the honor screen. If it's not, there is just no good reason to not honor someone. Or you think it is a complete coincedence that Riot implemented an ''All-team-honor-bonus''? Other than that, in the games I have played there are no good reasons to not honor someone. You are once again assuming you know people and a game that you weren't in. This is always a problem in discussions on the internet and in general nobody cares about the ''anecdotal evidence'' so the entire conversation basically becomes mute. I say that a game was good and nobody toxic. You say that I am probably imagining this because even though I personally was there, for some reason you are convinced there were still good reasons to not honor someone. Oh and don't worry, I see plenty of games where NOBODY deserves an honor, chances are I will find the one player still deserves the honor the most or I will indeed honor my premade. Which comes back to your earlier point where you are apparently really picky with your honors. And I personally give them for even the most minor reasons. Granted it was deserved. Trust me the new honor system will see atleast some changes at some point. Riot is never completely satisfied with pretty much anything, they even seek to change things that aren't generally talked about by much of the community. Infact I am pretty sure that the current honor system isn't fully operational anyway. Just like the ''Missions'' that were supposed to be a permanent thing but is basically disabled now that the Riven Vs Yasuo Event is over.

What you are talking about has literally nothing to do with social skills. I think you know it aswell because your response really doesn't address it at all. :) Like I said just typing 2 letters is not equal to social skills. Most shotcalling is done with pings and only a few set amount of words and sentences you can type. For example, ADC Bot -> lets baron. Nothing social about that.
: It doesn't determine how many key fragments you get. As long as your level is 2 or above you get the same 12 fragments per month as you did before, it doesn't matter if you're lvl 2 or 5.

How many countries do you know that allow that? As far as I know, not that many, netherlands, belgium and maybe france not sure, but the majority of countries don't have that. Abortions are also ilegal in most countries., if done after a point in time, 14 weeks, don't remember
Euthanization is legal in a lot of countries depending on how you want to look at it. Not every country uses the same laws when it comes to this. The Netherlands was the first country in the world to allow it and Belgium became the 2nd in 2002. Since then(and also before, in 1995, Austria) some 25 countries have made laws regarding the issue. Not every country allows people to actively aid in the death of a person. But when it comes to the terminally ill there is quite some understanding coming from governments. Even the USA that is famous for demonising the Act of Euthanization is not consistent regarding its illegality in all of its states. Abortion is even more complicated because nearly every country in the world has a stance on it, where Euthanization is only limited to those roughly 25 countries. Some countries allow abortions all the way up to 24 weeks. But it depends on the reasons. Like when a women is mentally or physically ill. Or when they were raped. I suggest you research it yourself because I am not the person to inform you about these things as I am pretty ignorant on the matter myself. On a side note I believe the 14 week thing comes from England. But I am not certain. :)

: Yup, pretty obvious he just wants to play the system.
Pretty obvious you can only draw lame conclusions because you have nothing better to say. If I wanted to ''play the system'' I wouldn't be here talking about it. I would just be rewriting files in my LoL folders for a temporary feeling I accomplished something. In todays world people talk about things that bother them. This way we can move forward togheter I don't know what country you live in but not everyone is a con-man.

These are no reasons to honor a player. There are plenty of players better than me, and there are a ton of supports, I don't honor any of them just for that. If she is so good because of her shot-calling and teamwork, and really deserves to get honored for it, she will get honored by your non-premade teammembers. If she doesn't get the honors, then the community disagrees with you. The benefits of the system far outweigh the negatives.
Lol, you have no idea how lazy people are. Even on day 1 people already refuse to honor eachother when the game was good and nobody was toxic. Or are you saying that in every game you played so far everyone honored someone and the team got the collective ''honor boost''? I have only played 8 games so far and in only 2 of those games my team actually collectively honored eachother. Me personally I would honor people even prior to this system for the most minor reasons. That you don't feel someone deserves any credit is your opinion. In my opinion a toplaner deserves credit simply for playing farmville with the other Toplaner and never dying for no good reasons. Just to name 1 reason. Also funny LoL players actually speak for the entire community. A community that is so infamously toxic. Haha PS: you can only honor 1 person a game so even if someone deserves it they may not receive an honor. You would know this if you had taken your time figuring things out instead of assuming things about people that you don't even know.

Social skills? You mean playing League of Legends is about talking to eachother? I believe you are confusing the MOBA genre with MMORPG's. In LoL there is no time to be social with other people ingame. Sure you can be kind but you can do that without ever typing a whole lot. Or you mean to say that a little ''yw'' and ''np'' and ''ty'' are equal to being considered Social? Haha, this is exactly one of the reasons I tried to find a MMO to play with some LoL friends in the past. Because I had way more than 4 friends who wanted to play with me so we all downloaded another game so we could play with more people at the same time. While also having to worry far less about the competitiveness. The less you say in League the better, you can easily tilt your team with even the smallest amount of talk. But ehm, you don't play ranked so I don't think you have a lot of experience with this. And on top of that the higher Elo you get the less people are going to be arsed to even say ''ty'', the plays will speak for itself. And high Elo players are almost linearly less friendly and Social than Low and Mid Elo players.
: Post full of pessimism and negativity. > [{quoted}](name=SevenKGnomeSize,realm=EUW,application-id=Mpd1UjGe,discussion-id=Nts8EPiv,comment-id=00010000,timestamp=2017-06-30T15:46:04.058+0000) > But I am staying optimistic.
I always trust Riot. They are a good company that eventually always realises that they make a mistake and try to fix it. You can think about last season where Riot admitted to making a lot of mistakes. (Kogmaw Rework-Revert being one of them) And people are already not honoring eachother on Day 1 of the New Honor System. I don't know if some people have such bad PC's that they don't get the time to honor someone or they really decide to not honor anyone in games where nobody was toxic and the team won the game. In other words without reason. At any rate teams are not getting the small bonus for everyone honoring someone. I am not being pessimistic I am being a realist.

You are definitely making a lot of assumptions. > > Starting with the fact that you think I don't understand this system but in the past this was already how the honor system worked. Honoring the same person had diminished returns so it was impossible to ''farm ribbons'' with your premade. The point here is why did they have to change this? You write so much and yet you can't even understand what you read. What exactly makes you think it's not the same for the current system? ######Also the whole discussion aside, you don't need a single point to lvl up at nearly same pace. Stop getting all worked up about nothing.
I made that pretty clear and so has Riot. I will quote for a 3rd time ''literally no benefit''. Which is NOT how the old honor system worked. I explained this in this and another comment aswell. Also what do you mean ''you don't need a single point to lvl at nearly same pace''?
