: Nah, not majority. They bought 22, 34% of Riot Games' stakes for 8 million USD in 2008 shortly after their first game was published, but 22,34% is not the majority. It was only in 2011 that Tencent purchased a majority of the stakes with 92,78% for 231,465,000 USD. There may be more information about this we don't even know. They may have contracts that aren't public and what not. They could also work together to search for Aliens on Pluto, because they think Aliens wouldn't settle down on planets and want to prove it! Who knows...
Tencent is the parent company of RIot games. Riot Games was majority-acquired by Tencent in February 2011 and fully acquired in December 2015. notice the word "fully"

it is simply a coin flip when it comes to team mates. It sucks, but the way ranked is supposed to be played is that you have to play hundreds of ranked game and eventually where you end up is the "real" rank you are. I know the frustration (i never play over 100 games of ranked a year) of having to rely on the coin flip, but what else can you do? Just play more games.
: Then you probably are at your average level I guess. Well the thing is, if you go in a winstreak, at some point your team will be worse than the other team (normal, you're supposed to carry them.)

If i remember correctly that kind info is not available from third party sites due to riot's privacy policy. Websites that tell you how much u've spent and how much total game time (norms, bots and ranked) u've spent are not really available anymore. I think only ranked info and past 20 games are publicly available, although a lot of sites can still get info on past match histories from riot's official match history site that seriously needs an update.

Rip, so true. i am force to be a meta slave, and i'm surprised how well it works. It is easy to win by just running "the most op runes" by finding the highest winrate rune pages for a meta champ. I improved my winrate so much since the update by doing this, but i miss being able to just play whatever you want, where as long as you're good at the game you can win. I had to give up on 2 of my mains cause they are so out of the meta they might as well be deleted from the game (and sadly a year ago ppl would have voted to get them deleted because they were "considered" annoying {{champion:245}} {{champion:23}} ) p.s. rip {{champion:266}} S7 - 7.14, only good for 14 patches, now he is more useless than ever...

funny thing is, i just run the "highest winrate runes and builds" and it just works lol. no need to get "creative" when you can easily win by running the best runes possible for a specific champ lol. rito, what do you mean by "get creative" old runes and masteries were actually more about preferences (with the exception of key stones) then best combination, but now every rune is like a keystone, so yeah of course there is a "best rune page" for a champion unless you want to play fully off meta (which gets nerfed or rework once it works, so why bother, what happend to tank assassins? and full ad champs? see my point?)

I might have focused a lot on his negative side, but he has his pros. His combo using w, {{item:3157}} and ult can determine whether a teamfight is won or lost. I find that a lot of ekkos don't seem to use this combo which might allow us Ekko mains to abuse it more.

: If you're testing newly released champ in ranked, you're the one trolling. But I see how it can be upsetting.
In ranked it can be sometimes, but draft pick? Kayne wasn't a troll pick from the start. Ekko? Xin? Jhin? WW? broken on release, It isn't trolling, it is just abusing it. Evelyn is strong, but people don't know how to play them, but how can u know? So yeah, banning your team's pick is still more troll than picking new champ.
SODXI (EUNE)
: I ban Evelyn every game, especially if on my team. She's just released, I would get tons of reports. Yeah, I guess there's a lot of problems to work out before being able to add something like this.
but what you're doing is not fun for others that are in the same game. It is technically trolling. so yeah, u should get tons of reports. Tho i also do it on new releases, but only if my team doesn't have first pick on the new champ, but i explain and they are usually cool with it.

: Can you please return honor option for enemy players too?
It would be cool if they added it and made the honors count more the higher your honor level is. To those why say honor trading could be a thing, i talked about it in is why it won't happen and isn't a problem in METAL UA's comment.
METAL UA (EUNE)
: Honor trading sux
To those why say honor trading could be a thing, here is why it won't happen and isn't a problem: 1. The honor system will be like the current honor system (meaning you will not be able to chat before you finish honoring.) the only way it could happen is before the game ends, but if you can only honor one person you can only guarantee 1 honer back or 1 report to a teammate. 2. Even if you get to honer multiple players on the other team, honor trading can get caught much like swearing in chat, just use keywords and word order. If facebook can figure out if you're planning something in a chat (which is way more complex and with more possibilities than just Honor trading) i don't see riot not being able to implement that. just make the players get a warning that honoring the player or report another player you talked about will not count due to the talk of honor trading in all chat. 3. Honor trading is already a thing in the team ain't it? And not to mention premades. 4. Just prevent players from reporting the other team if they get honorable opponent to deal with the report trade. It won't be as big of a problem as you make it out to be.

: Anyone else seem to be coming across more toxic people than usual?
I transfered my account to EUW and i am now unranked. I play with friends ranging from level 10 to gold II, and we end up getting matched with trolls and toxic players. What are the chances of getting matched with a troll or toxic player when ur 3+ premade? Unless EUW is a toxic and troll filled server (EUW players are going to kill me for this). btw, we aren't those kind of premades that take everything except support. In fact, we leave out jg or adc more often than support. But we seem to only get passive farm junglers or adcs that only care about stats and getting S, so they only ks or farm, which forces us to play 4v5 every game. Feels like borderline trolling. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}
SODXI (EUNE)
: Report in champ select
I do understand why riot doesn't add this feature. It is most likely to prevent people reporting too early without knowing enough and have justification to ban (e.g. reporting for trolling just because someone goes teemo support). But i have gotten draft games where there is a 3+ premades and one gets autofilled support. The autofilled support proceed to ban all the champs i want to play and pick my second pick just to try to force me to dodge, and because they are premade i can't even report them without receiving 3+ reports my self. I noticed that banning a teammates pick shows a red ban sign under that ban. So maybe add a report function to that in the case that some one trolls by banning your pick you can report them for it? and don't get me started about last picking yasuo or zed to make a full ad team comp when asked to go ap, effectively losing us the game from the start. {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}}

It could be private bots developed to mass produce level 30 accounts to be sold. Anyways, why can't riot catch this and ban those accounts? It is happening in bot games, but now even in PvP ARAM. This is a problem if you think about how ridiculously fed real people can get and force you to play a game where your team will just get wiped for the next 20 minutes. It is a waste of peoples time.
