Why isn't Vi top a thing? gypsylord

So as anyone who has watched the Vi champ spotlight may know, Vi was originally intended to be a top laner.

She's got a lot of cool gameplay in top lane with the Q charge up and E cleave but, honestly, she's just too fair up there for too long compared to our current crop of top laners. In the early game she has meaningful mana costs, telegraphed attacks, and massive cooldown windows for her passive and all of her spells (P - 18, Q - 18, E - 14 per charge, R- 150). I actually think top lane Vi could be a pretty awesome experience for both sides of the lane if we did stuff like lower her CD's or buff E's range and mana cost but then jungle Vi would go to crazy town. Could nerf jungle Vi to compensate but then are we screwing over the many Vi mains who prefer her out-of-lane experience? It's a tough call.

All this said, SmashGizmo got diamond last season almost exclusively with top lane Vi. He'd typically play conservative until 6 focusing only on CS and rush an Iceborn Gauntlet for the extended dueling power and mana to offset her high costs. Turns out if a Vi manages to stay even until 6 there is not a single character up there (not even Irelia or Jax) who can beat her in a straight up 1v1. Her burst and sustained damage output is insane when she gets the chance to use it and her late game with top lane items is monstrous for the enemy teams' squishies (or at least it was in season 3, a lot has changed since then).

@Lyte - Though we do not appear to agree on this matter I want to thank you very much for taking the time to come to this thread and voice your opinion on the OP and on other comments made in this thread.

Thank you very much
No worries, we have heated discussions about designs much like this one internally all the time. One thing I think we both agree on is that we should always attack the ideas, and not the person. Emotions really just cloud decision-making when we're trying to deep-dive into the intricacies of a design.

My system would be proactive where as your system is completely reactive. With my system the toxic player suffers right away for their behavior where as with your system they can keep ragging on good players for a long time before your system even takes notice if it ever does.
Actually, with the current system it'll take approximately 3 days maximum for them to lose their new account.

How is a system proactive if it requires player input, which is reactive because it's after a game experience?

Could you explain why these two are different?

If you're banned, why isn't it "damn I lost my account that I invested in, I'll make a new one and not be an ass or I'll lose that account too."

If you're in low reputation queue, why isn't it "damn I am stuck in low priority/low reputation again, that's ok! Time to make a new account and replace my old one in a week or two, no biggie."

Is that what your grand idea was? To have raging smurfs attacking new player?
Here's where you disagree with a lot of recent research by multiple university labs. A lot of recent research has shown that online toxicity is not about anonymity. If you look at news, social media and other games that force you to reveal your real ID and often personal profile to post comments, there's still an insane amount of toxicity. What the research has shown is that the problem is a lack of consequences for actions, and this has very little to do with anonymity.

Secondly, the current systems don't create more toxicity. Many players that are banned for racism, sexism or homophobia quit League of Legends and never play again, and that is exactly what we wanted. They'll rage on the forums and complain, but that's expected when you tell a group of players they don't belong in this community. For the small number of players that do make new accounts, they'll keep getting banned until they quit as well.

Third, there's actually a system in place at low levels already that separates toxic smurfs away from other players and then bans them. We knew some of the toxic players would make new accounts when they got banned, and we did want to protect new players. However, we see that for many toxic players a few bans does get them to quit permanently. Prisoner's Island systems don't solve this issue by the way... many players just create new accounts when they enter Prisoner's Island anyways.

I agree that for most players, making it 'worth it' to be nice is more effective, and we've been working on efforts to reward those players and give them more reasons to reflect on why being positive = awesome. However, we're always going to need pretty aggressive systems for the small % of players that refuse to change. For these players, we just want to ban them repeatedly until they take their time elsewhere.

We've been working on a new system that addresses Leavers/AFKs more aggressively, and will talk about it in a post in the future. Without revealing too much, it's a different take on low priority designs and will update LeaverBuster's penalty and tuning systems.

You didn't really address this guy's idea, just Riot's own idea of why "Prisoner's Island" is a bad thing.
We have to go back and finish the Honor Initiative, and that'll explain a lot of the reasons why Honor was setup the way it is but seems incomplete.

For example, right now there's an issue with the Honor Ribbons where it's simply rewarded to the top 20% of positive players on every server. Most of these players tend to play modes like ARAM and Co-op vs Bots because these modes simply have really high Honor give rates; so, you won't see ribbons as much in Normals or Ranked. One of the fixes is making sure that we reward ribbons per queue, and not just per server.

Secondly, we have some rewards for the Honor Initiative that are more consistent. Right now, Ribbons are the top 20%, but there's nothing for the everyday player who wants to be recognized for being positive while working their way up.

Ironically, what we find is that when you actually put players together in Prisoner's Island and all 10 players are actually consistently toxic players for subjective behaviors like verbal abuse... it's nearly impossible to change.

Again, Prisoner's Island type systems work OK for behaviors like Leaving/AFKs which are binary, but are very, very counter-productive for subjective behaviors.

Hey Arkon Tri,

The reason I haven't dug into this is because we've discussed why these designs aren't suitable for League (or many other games) in the past. Some other players have mentioned this, but you're basically suggesting a concept called "Prisoner's Island," where you pair players with similar reputations together.

There's a lot of nuances to low priority queue or Prisoner's Island systems; for example, you can use low priority queue systems for behaviors like Leaving/AFK. These behaviors are binary--players know they either left a game or not, and there's no subjectivity to the behavior. However, when you're dealing with behaviors like verbal abuse, intentional feeding or negative attitude, it's far more subjective. Some players will get placed into low priority queue systems for these behaviors and vehemently disagree that they belong there--you'll basically get a lot of, "What the? All these people in low priority queue are toxic, why am I here?"

In these cases, a lot of players (mainly those without purchased content) will simply make new accounts to re-enter the ecosystem with a neutral reputation rating. If these players do that, you've basically banned a player but used a complicated, time-consuming system to do so.

Secondly, a common issue with these designs is how you score new players. Do you score them in neutral priority, and force them to have worse matches than the "positive" players? This isn't ideal, because generally you want your new players to have the best game experience. You obviously can't start new players with 0 or negative reputation, as that'd be a negative experience. If you start new players with a positive reputation, then it gives toxic smurfs an easy way to ruin games at low levels while also further encouraging them to just start new accounts if they ever end up with negative reputation.

We've talked about a lot more reasons in the past, but Prisoner's Island has basically been a concept for over 5 years and we know that it only works well with binary behaviors that are not subjective.

Our chat restriction system looks for consistent patterns of toxicity.

To be real with you, we know that every so often everyone can get mad. It would be pretty unreasonable for us to expect that all players be 100% angels all of the time. So our chat restrictions are not looking for the players that get mad every now and then, it's looking for the players that get mad very frequently and keep ruining games.

That might be why you haven't seen chat restrictions in some time. With all that said, you should always do your best to keep your attitude in check.

We're working on a place to report potential hackers/exploiters etc etc. In the meantime, if you think someone is legitimately exploiting you should leave a note in the report you make at the end of the match.

We don't really have an in-game report function for this because it would be easy for false positives. Sometimes a player is just good and not cheating. :X

You can also report them to us on our support site too.

R: "NERF PALADINS TO THE GROUND BABY!!!"
GhostCrawler says "NERF PALADINS TO THE GROUND BABY!!!" causing all non-wow players to be confused for 2.5 seconds before moving on to what they were doing. Also causes the Blizzard Staff to enter a sobbing session for 1 hour.

That's why we switched to the new player champ pool. When you're low level, you have access to a set list of champs now instead of being stuck with the F2P champs rotating on you. I think those guys might even be in that pool, not sure though.

I'm not taking anything for granted in these hypotheticals.

I say shrimp then. I'm not a big sweets person.

But Crabgot is the answer. It's the first skin I ever bought.

My most used skin is probably Riot Blitzcrank now. BEEP BOOP PULL OVER.

First three no brain-er. Do I have the option of instead allowing Turley and the crab to fight to the death to determine their own fate? I'd like to give them some agency here.

Well I've always really liked crabs (I long ago decided a crab would have been my Patronus) and I've always played a wizard or mage in any RPG where it's an option. Then XBox random name generator spun its wheels until it landed on WizardCrab; it was just so perfect.

And here I am!

All he needed to do was say "we're looking into it" loud and clear. This is a vague statement with little value but that would be interpreted by most of the forums as some form of proto-justice forming, which MAY be a big fat lie, but it would calm things down and that's really what matters here.
I think, as I look over a lot of the comments in this thread I'd have to agree with you. What originally was supposed to be a conversation about our Name and Shame guidelines and why a bunch of threads were being closed (modsRMurderlololol) morphed into a Kaceytron conversation. It seems like I am speaking to a wall, and the players frustrated with me feel the same. Most likely because we're not really talking about the same topics and we never really were. They want a Kaceytron conversation, I want a conversation about policy.

I suppose it would be best to wrap this up at this point. I'm going to think about better ways to try and "talk with the mob" in the future. Maybe it's not worth trying to talk at all. I'd like to think that we can make General Discussion a better place in the long run though, so I'm not really willing to throw in the towel yet.

While I'm sure a small subset of trolls will try to use this thread as an example of my own stance on a particular player, I hope I conveyed that ultimately, there is no public stance for us to reveal. We will actively seek out and punish people who intentionally try to ruin the game, whether they are streamers or not. If you're interested in helping us, then your best bet is to provide coherent and accurate reports directly to Riot and not the forums.

We do not prosecute cases in the court of public opinion.

On a lighter note, thanks for this thread atleast. Nice to see some kind of answers from inside Riot, even if they are wishy-washy.
Yeah I hate that wishy-washy is often the best I can do, but I just don't have unilateral ownership of announcing every potential LoL update on the forums. I hope this is better than nothing.

3. Have you played the new champ yet?

4. Will there be an ultimate skin this year?

5. Will there be a skin sale list for august?

6. Why was the mecha summoners icon not available for IP like some of the others?

Thanks!
1. This I cannot say.

2. Yes.

3. Not in a full game, but I've messed around.

4. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, I believe we're still trying to stick to 1 per year.

5. Nope.

6. Copy pasted from an earlier post of mine (albeit on Reddit):

Hey guys, I just want to clear up a couple of things.

Like a lot of people in this thread are saying, the IP price for summoner icons is a thing that has so far only been tied to specific events. We've done it for Lunar Revel, Pentakill, and the soccer (football) stuff. The strategy is still slightly malleable but it is likely going to be as follows:

For event-based purchasable icons, there will be an RP price and an IP price that will remain for the duration of the event. The reason event-based icons have an IP price is to help generate enthusiasm for the event. When you logged in and half of your friends list was sporting the Pentakill icon, it was super cool and got you excited for what was happening (at least it was like that for me). But, if the icon is to remain in the store permanently, the IP price will be removed after the event. Purchasable icons that are not event-based (like the Mecha icon) will generally not have IP prices. The Mecha icon is here to let players further signify their love of the skin line rather than to get people pumped for the release of these skins. Only having an RP price is our general strategy regarding non gameplay-affecting cosmetic content, and these fall into that category. I added to this confusion by forgetting to remove the IP price from the Hat Trick Icon after July 13th in some regions, and for that I apologize.

I know that the definition of an event is a little confusing here, and Iíll admit I donít have an incredibly clear answer for that. Specifically for just this context, an event involves more than just a themed skin release/promotion site (often with some time-sensitive component). I know thatís super vague but weíre always trying new things and to be honest theyíll probably be determined on a case-by-case basis.

As far as the IP sink argument goes, summoner icons is not the place where weíre trying to solve that issue. I donít want to get in a huge debate about IP sinks in this particular thread, but Iím happy to discuss that in other places (like my thread in the forums or another reddit thread or something).

I hope this makes sense.
