    You Ruined the game basically by changing how the system works! Before it was the champion kits that Where chosen by items for ex: Lissandra and AP Shaco could activate Liandry cause their kit enabled it. Now the system is so flawed that the classes make no sense because it’s not champions kit who match items but the champions who fill the gap of their weakness like adding Stridebreaker or Galeforce that fills the champions weakens! This flaws the system!!! This I why a lot of players like Gosu and Imqtp stopped playing. Please! Do something meaningful! Even if it means reverting the items!

    lmao....this van roon guy has to be kidding? The team had issues with some items previously but the rework of the item in totality has opened a whole new set of problems. Burst damage was an issue pre-new items but the yea its gotten increasingly worse. The issue this season however has continuously been healing/lifesteal. I've yet to see a moba get this right. TBH league was close with S10 but then they change the entire item system and put it with items that do too much. Its essentially change the concept of the champs by giving too much without costing. Ill give two examples: Eclipse - the purpose of assassins is not to stay around but to be a skill matchup and find opening to 100-0 their opponent. They are supposed to flirt with dying in lane and turn it around. This item turns them into safer laners without sacrificing their burst. Shieldbow - anti-burst item that gives 20% crit and AS? Its meant to be a defensive item but provides that same stats as kraken or gf. An item that gives LS and a shield? There should be more than a -5 or 10ad between the more offensive items. The worst part about this is that grievous feels mandatory which means they receive no realy downside but tax their laner without any skill involved. While there are champs that tax the enemy (skarner mord etc.) and item should not mandate this.

    Is it just me or has league client been much more buggy lately? Ive had times where we cant switch champs in clash, many, many times where I can’t be in post-game lobby because of the “skip stats” bug, league crashing entire monitor and requiring a pc restart to work again, correct role not showing up correctly when in a multiplayer lobby.

  34. Feeluck

    FeeluckPred 2 meseci

    they monitor snowballing? i doubt that. in the past few years every preseason enhanced the snowballing in league - to an extend, where a slight error in the early game will snowball into lategame without any chance for a comeback - unless the enemy screws up BADLY. at some point its not even about tactics, playstyle, etc. its just stomp or being stomped. the game lost alot of tactical depth!

  35. Heddwyn

    HeddwynPred 2 meseci

    Dont create more comeback mechanics. There is already massive bounties for shut downs as well as late game elder soul being able to completely turn a game. If there are too many come back mechanics then playing well wont feel as rewarding

  36. PathSythe

    PathSythePred 2 meseci

    "the goal of the preseason was to not increase the burst damage in the game." Im sorry, but surely you have some grain of knowledge 'working' on this game that had to realize adding those insanely broken items in the game was going to increase the burst damage? It blows my mind how often the same mistakes are being made over and over again. You've even made Aram worse by randomly buffing/nerfing champs based on, god knows what, but definitely not based on how good those champions actually are. For the love of this game and the players that want to play it, please think about what you're actually doing before releasing it and get some proper knowledgeable people involved.

    TODAY is March 31, 2021. When I que up for a match it stays in que FOREVER, it does not que up a game. Then after about 5-6 minutes Riot warns you that you've missed too many ques. If you continue to try and que up for a game, you may get banned and restricted as many people appear to be facing. Riot is LITTERALLY punishing player for doing nothing wrong and simply because their client is so bugged and full of problems. FIX YOUR BUGGY CLIENT PLEASE! Consider having an ACTUAL HUMAN BEING authorize penalties sech as bans and restrictions.

    Just because you ignore this message and your responsibilities. ​I only want to have fun and relax while playing this game, but people always ruin my games and my day. It is not normal that every game or every other game someone says 'EZ' or other things like this. Beside some contact sports, this behavior is not tolerated in many other games or sports. And I can assure you if we were to play face-2-face many players will not have the courage to do this as they would instantly get slapped just as they should. I don't believe you would agree with players that are participating in officials events, to take the mike after the game and proceed with shaming their opponents. In so many years of this game, you have done progress but still are unable to control your community. I do not understand why you are so unwilling to help this game progress, since I believe you are not clueless in this regard. All you have to do is introduce a new category for specifically reporting players with this type of behavior and actually do the reports, with 3 misbehaving in a short period resulting in suspension and then a BAN from the game (or idk think of something yourselves). Why are you people so keen on keeping players that don't want to at least try and behave and are pulling down the community and totally ruining the game. I know this game has many kids and they are hard to deal with, but considering it's your game, I'd say it is also your responsibility to at least try, which you don't seem eager on doing at all. And considering you already have a BAN system, which indicates you agree that some behaviors cannot be tolerated, I think you should also consider this particular behavior as it always has been around in the game. 'Ez' might not mean much I know, but for many it totally ruins the mood, and I don't think that taking some actions regarding this behavior is that hard, especially considering you are a company with a big revenue. All I am asking is that you show a little concern for you game and the people playing it. And to give me that new report category.

    legonalasPred 2 meseci

    You know, the game would be in a much healthier state if we would look at the true issue that pushed the game in to such a burst heavy place. The existence of flash or the state it's in. Most mobas fixed this issue by adding a cooldown of a few seconds when you get damaged to stop it from being used as an instant escape. If the whole game no longer revolves around instant escapes then burst is no longer needed to combat that. Slowing down overall damage will make stuns less impactful as it takes at least a few seconds before someone dies. Bringing back champions like Leona for example to a healthier place without changing their kit. It will leave room to lower overall damage in the game, slowing down the pace making the flow of the game feel more fair. It will make other summoner spells more desirable overall and would really stop/revert the power creep that has been going on in the last few years. Stuns aren't long in league compared to any other game and the current state they will never be short enough to feel fair. Because people die within 1 second anyway. Tanks can be balanced better around lower damage outputs overall. So much of this game can be traced back to this one summoner spell. The reason why burst feels needed and tanks never seem to balance out right. The reason heals and lifesteal are so critical to boos to absurd heights because they have to compensate around these high burst damaging abilities, which exist because everyone has a chance to instantly peace out of a fight. Slowing down flash however is a very big change as it will impact the balance of the game in a big way. Therefor I would suggest to keep it until a season change as this is when players feel most comfortable for big changes to the game. But it's also the easiest change as it will fix most of the issues that plague this amazing game right now. The reason why this game struggles with balance so much more than any other moba.

  60. legonalas

    Maybe stop adding new mechanics and start removing/reworking problematic ones so that balancing becomes less of an issue. Work on your roots, stop putting band-aids on and avoiding the main issues.

    im not even wondering why the state of the game is so bad. looking back at the item changes they legit had no plan what they were doing. the visuals looked like some intern drrew them in paint and the balancing he probably coinflipped along the way. just turn down the damage creep of the game. i dont care w/e your statistic say but if a healing bruiser can tank more than an actual tank something is horibble wrong with the game. not even speaking of echanters, you are legit forced to play like an e girll support on them otherwise you get os by anything that hits you.
