: It's 2019 and people still hate yasuo
As annoying as Yasuo is, I'd accept his existence if they just removed one thing from his kit: His ability to ult off of other champion's knock-ups. Yasuo should have to rely on the player's skill to hit his tornados (which should be piss-easy in team-fights anyway), not on his premade picking Vi or an asshole knock-up comp or anything like that. It's simply such a big advantage for bad Yasuo players that you have no real way to counter except to ban as many knock-up champs in champ select as possible. Since the day that's existed that's the main reason he's bothered me. Sure, he gets a double passive with a shield which rewards you for moving (yes. For MOVING), a stupid wall that blocks everything, unlimited dashes through enemy units and can literally never miss farm unless you're brain damaged, but ALL of that would be tolerable for me if he just couldn't ult off other champion's knock-ups like the scummy skill parasite he is.

: if all you can think to do with your life is playing a game you hate then maybe you should seek help...
Well, that's the nature of addiction. However I'm happy to say I got my help; I can play this game occasionally instead of obsessively now, and to be honest taking it less seriously has helped me to enjoy it more with my friends (I don't dare to, but I think it would still ultimately be a horrible experience in long doses). I guess I'm just feeling uncomfortable observing some of Riot's recent decisions and that's what brought up my vitriol towards the game. Having the Project event come right after the Arcade one just seems scummy...

: and what did you lose by playing? because i get enjoyment/entertainment from it which is a million times better than watching paint dry or the horrible stuff that comes out of the tv in the form or making stupid ppl famous...

: current generation rules... im amazed that we dont get a daily topic about: "riot should pay us money for playing their stupid game"
To be fair, this game is a horrible, money-grubbing time-sink fuelled by addiction. I wouldn't be surprised if game models like this are one day outlawed for preying on young, vulnerable minds... So yeah. Maybe people should be getting compensated for their losses somehow
: are you sure of that?
According to Riot Mort, Popstar Kai'Sa Prestige Edition is a separate skin to the original Popstar Kai'Sa skin. https://twitter.com/Mortdog/status/1044647860187279360 Presumably this applies to all prestige skins, but if you're still unsure I'd wait to find out from someone who owns one. Edit: I don't know why that hyperlink turned into a picture. Weird
: question about Prestige skin
They're treated like separate skins, even though one is a glorified chroma. So, you can get the prestige skin without having the original if you want.
: Opinions on new project skins?
Arcade cash-grab event. Just terrible... Two actually nice skins with the Demacian Vice boys. And immediately after that PROJECT money-grubbing event. -Pyke getting the legendary was predictable. He's edgy and lets you play a KS carry when you get autofilled support. -Jinx was a terrible idea for project. -Irelia's not bad, but again it was predictable she'd eventually get a project skin. -Akali was also predictable, but from how it looks so far it may have been poorly executed... -Warwick is actually an awesome choice for project, a breath of fresh air. Pretty much the only good thing I'm seeing so far. Overall I just wish they'd gone for a anything other than Project for the new event. Something new would have been really appreciated after the spectacular failure that was the Arcade event. It just feels like Riot are sinking to new lows because they know they can get away with it. Multiple consecutive events that require a paid pass? Only popular champions getting skins? Low blows

: Last chance program for perma banned players
What Riot should do is make a teeny tiny little server for all you permabanned people only, which is hosted from Kazakhstan and always one patch behind everyone else. It will always be shut down to prioritise better service for main servers if necessary.

They're popular and make money. That's it
AdamX69X (EUNE)
: Adding skins to the champions in tft
Riot have already said that skinlines could be introduced as a trait, not a cosmetic purchasable. For example, you know how Vayne has her Arclight skin by default, and how Graves has his pirate skin? That's so they fit into their respective themes of Noble and Pirate. What Riot might do is introduce entirely new traits, such as 'Arcade', with Arcade versions of champions that offer a different passive effect for having more Arcade champions, as well as different abilities (maybe Arcade Ahri's ult will be her charm instead of her Orb)
: Missing 5 rp for a chroma on battleboss yasuo that i like
I didn't think I'd see the day someone actually likes Battleboss Yasuo. Still, if you wanna earn a small amount of rp, draw a champion or something league of legends related in paint and submit it. People often get the small amount of rp they've asked for if they whip up a little "offering" to the Rito gods

: You failed Riot
When people don't understand what timezones are...
: Why can't I buy Qiyana?
As usual, the champion will release _during_ patch 9.13. Patch 9.13 hasn't dropped yet, and even when it does Qiyana won't be out the second the patch hits live. Sometimes it can be a few days. On the bright side, that's a few more days we don't have to permaban her
: What to do when Mordekaiser ults you?
If you're playing Anivia or Azir, wall him or yourself against the edge of his ult and wait. Playing a powerful duelist is also an option, as well as making sure you have grievous wounds to reduce the effectiveness of his healing. Finally, if you're being chased by him, lead him into the jungle. If he ults you, use mobility spells to get over walls, wait for him to come around to the other side and then use your mobility spell again.
: This isn't so much a power creep ability, it makes Yasuo unique and fun to play, and isn't a buffed up version of some other champions abilities
{{champion:23}} Don't mind me, just gonna work work work to get that fury up for my reward of 35-50% crit based on level! Feels good to have a unique identity as the melee crit champion that no one could possibly steal from m- {{champion:157}} I get double crit from the start because CertainlyT says so. And a shield for walking around. I'm the main character of League of Legends and very fun to play against. {{champion:23}} ...

: I don't know about you, but this makes me happy.
: TFT 2H+ Still 9000 Not moving
At least we'll be able to play a more stable and balanced version when it hits live...
: PBE sign up issue
Even if you successfully make an account, there's no getting in. The queue is "over 9000" players, and the wait time claims to be 25-40 mins (when it's actually around 2 or 3 hours before it finally gives you an error message and sends you right to the back again)
: The big problem with TFT even before its released.
There is a fair deal of rng to the game, meaning you can't always get the optimal setup. People who understand this can instead make the best of what they have, and are more likely to win than someone who's praying to get the best stuff in the next roll. Additionally positioning matters. How you position your champions, what items you buy, whether you choose to level up or save to earn interest: These are all situational choices. If you follow a formula it isn't always gonna land you a win because you don't always know what you'll be fighting.
Lariatas (EUNE)
: Yummi Q is unfair and needs an adjust
There needs to be more incentive for her to detach from her ally. Take some power off the attached Q slow, add some power to the unattached Q slow. Make both a little more expensive so she can't spam them.
: Can we get an Ivern the Cruel skin
An Ivern the Cruel skin sounds like an amazing idea in theory. Unfortunately it simply won't bring Riot as much revenue as Kai'Sa skin number 7
Rioter Comments
TNE SODM (EUNE)
: Is the chat option the reason why we are so toxic?
I believe what causes toxicity is frustration at how little control you have. Every toxic thing you think or feel during the game will in some way be the result of you being unable to control an outcome important to your success (your teammates, your opponents, game balance, bugs, etc). Chat is more like an opportunity to present toxicity. Much like how a car is fairly safe until someone angry or inebriated takes the wheel, so too is chat a fairly safe and useful tool. It's just regrettable that it can also be used to inflict our already existing toxicity upon one another. Without it, I reckon angry/toxic individuals would simply resort to ping spamming or intentional feeding/running down lane.
: Ungreatful RIOT
You didn't invent this idea, it's been done in multiple games including DotA 2 (see _Outworld Devourer_).
Sephiro (EUNE)
: Thank God : For the first time Riot made a good and balanced new reworked/released champ : Morde!
Went against him mid as Cass. Haven't played Cass in years. Whooped his ass when he ulted me. If he ults someone else, just follow the glow and CC him when he reappears. I watched a Kha'Zix wreck him just by jumping over walls when Morde ulted him. He had to walk all the way around, and by the time he got to back to Kha he just jumped over the wall again. Ult wasted. The only slightly strong thing about Morde is his grab. And you can dodge that

The game also lacks short men and thin men but I don't see people complaining about it. Riot has no obligation to appease to anyone. They are a company and have to make profit. They will make champions that sell best and bring in more money. They aren't going to design an old lady on wheelchair because she won't sell and similarly they aren't going to design an ugly short dude because he won't sell either.
>They aren't going to design an old lady on wheelchair because she won't sell and similarly they aren't going to design an ugly short dude because he won't sell either. And yet Overwatch has done both to great success (Ana, Torbjorn). Riot Games could easily pull it off, I just doubt they'll try.

: About board votes..
It's not anyone's fault but your own if you're getting upset over some silly red and green numbers. I'm not trying to be mean here, just telling you that votes on the League of Legends boards do not have any impact or effect on your life unless you let them. If you can't handle getting down-voted it might be healthier for you to take a break from posting altogether until you are better prepared for the fact that sometimes people are gonna dislike what you have to say. Have you considered improving your English and communication skills, by the way? It may be that what you want to say is getting lost in translation, and that could be causing others to misunderstand you.
Ditzy Doo (EUW)
: Female character design in LoL
At a glance, there seem to be a fair amount of female champions which differ significantly from the hourglass stereotype you mentioned. Unique Body-Types: {{champion:84}} {{champion:34}} {{champion:1}} {{champion:164}} {{champion:102}} {{champion:69}} {{champion:60}} {{champion:28}} {{champion:420}} {{champion:222}} {{champion:429}} {{champion:10}} {{champion:203}} {{champion:127}} {{champion:267}} {{champion:518}} {{champion:61}} {{champion:421}} {{champion:113}} {{champion:16}} {{champion:163}} {{champion:254}}{{champion:498}} {{champion:350}} {{champion:142}} {{champion:143}} - These are all either muscular, small, inhuman or simply not "hourglass", as far as I'm concerned. I don't know why you don't count yordles because they are still female champions after all, but I've not included any of them above. Evelynn is on this list instead of the hourglass one because I think her body is over-exaggerated for the purpose of her character theme, as opposed to giving her an hourglass body "just because". The same argument could be made for Ahri to a lesser extent, but she's going in the hourglass list anyway. Lamb is undeniably feminine despite Kindred being collectively considered. VS Hourglass Body-Type: {{champion:103}} {{champion:22}} {{champion:51}} {{champion:40}} {{champion:145}} {{champion:43}} {{champion:55}} {{champion:7}} {{champion:99}} {{champion:21}} {{champion:25}} {{champion:76}} {{champion:89}} {{champion:15}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:134}} (and soon Qiyana). The majority of these champions are earlier designs, which is evidence that Riot are trying to avoid the hourglass body-type, although Kai'Sa and Qiyana are exceptions. By comparison, we have Taliyah, Illaoi, Rek'Sai, Camille, Neeko, Yuumi who could all be considered semi-recent releases to the roster. Neither Hourglass Nor Unique: {{champion:39}} {{champion:133}} {{champion:92}} {{champion:131}} {{champion:67}} {{champion:114}} - I wouldn't say these ones are strictly "hourglass", but that's debatable. All of this said, I do agree with you in thinking that the game lacks bigger women and older women. However, I don't see Riot Games ever making new champions like that because they might not sell well to the League community (which is still largely young boys). Camille is probably the oldest "looking" champion we're going to get, with older champions looking like Anivia or Zoe because people don't like old or something
: Qiyana's character design makes no sense
Gragas can vertically accelerate forward without any buildup, into a bellyslam. Riven can do flips with a sword twice the size of her torso. Lee Sin can kick mountains, giant undead scuba-suits and robots across lanes. Blind. Garen, Katarina and Wukong can spin around at insane speeds without getting disorientated. In case it hasn't registered yet, this game isn't renowned for it's faithfulness to realism.
: Well that sounds annoying I doubt riot will add that but we will have to see... looks like everything is just getting added to hextech craftin though
Unfortunately the word "battlepass" seems to have appeared in the assets page on Surrender@20. Unless it was a mistake, there's a very real possibility that Riot are at least considering it :(
: Yeah but what’s a battle pass, I don’t play battle royales I’ve got no idea what that is
Okay. So, a battlepass is where you pay an amount of money to unlock quests in a level up system. By completing these quests and leveling up, you unlock little cosmetics. But if you don't complete all the quests and levels in time, you lose them and your money is wasted. A battlepass is usually 100 levels, and to break even, you usually have to get about half-way through the pass, but obviously you'll want to make the most of it by completing it to the end. A battlepass expires at the end of each season, and a new one begins. Basically, you're paying a bunch of money up front for the privilege of having to then grind for items. It gets quickly stale, but unfortunately it's proven profitable, which means it could very well appear in Teamfight Tactics. We're already seeing assets for character avatars, "map chromas", eggs, avatar variants and cosmetics like that, so in all likeliness they'll only be available through the battlepass (and possibly lootboxes)
: What do you mean by a battle pass?
He thinks because the game is similar to a battle royale (last player standing wins), that it's gonna get a battlepass. However, I think they'd need to establish the game modes popularity before even thinking about it, or it'll just be wasted assets. I hope they don't introduce a battlepass either, but they followed suit with lootboxes, so it's not out of the question sadly...
: That's just the character that she is, quite a few are complaining about how she doesn't fit the aesthetic they initially though she belongs in(as in the personality, hair, body, clothes ect.). But her character is basically written to be a royal self-entitled brat that hungers for respect and reverence. So far, she doesn't come across as a 'good' person, while she does whatever is necessary to defend Ixtal she also wants nothing more than to rule it and refuses to let go of that pursuit. I actually think Qiyana, is a good addition to league. She's clearly a flawed character, but also doesn't have a very obvious redeeming side to her personality. Not every champ can be a Braum or Yuumi, and league already has plenty to choose from in the 'horrific awe-inspiring ancient force' pool, it's refreshing to see a regular but powerful individual which might not be all that likeable.
I get your point, but I really think it goes into obnoxious territory. I can stomach every champion in League so far, and I reckon this will be the first one who I truly can't stand.

That's what we call confirmation bias.

All of the above male champions have been op or problematic at one point or another in League's history.
