I appreciate your apology. Let's do a quick activity - what do you think are the best priorities for the live balance team?

Then we'll go over the bullet points and see if perhaps you really do understand the scope of everything - or perhaps there's pieces you dont know about.

But that's because i've never had a good time writing a message on a phone. Worse is when you accidentally press a back button on the touchpad and lose everything you type.

The reason I do is that I can't carry an actual computer around with me at school, and I'm not even in college, so without a job I can't get an actual computer that I can use when I want.

Edit: On another note, this thread has been so hilariously sidetracked.

Like, we get a few years of nothing, and then a giant change, and even then it took a couple of giant complaint threads to even get a reason as to why they're changing her kit in the first place.
i understand you bro ;--;

Here is my beef with Reddit/the News section here on the website, and it's a BIG one.

There is no "devtracker" alternative for these sites. I have no easy way to collect a list of all the Riot posts in order to stay on top of the current news. It almost depends on blind luck because I almost certainly don't want to wade through thousands of useless comments in order to find out official statements from Riot.

For Reddit the closest thing is having to search via a person's name and then piece-by-piece attempting to reconstruct a conversation that is happening backwards. Just typing that is incredibly agitating.

For the News section here there is...nothing. I'm completely unable to find out if there are any Red posts buried within that mess of a reddit-clone. Which is unfortunate because apparently Hippalus posts there but I have no way to find it.

I agree with you and all, but attacking people like that makes you part of the reason that Rioter don't post here any more.

Zephyreal, I asked Wizard Crab, but maybe you can pass along a message too: Not cross-posting vital information IMMEDIATELY is a huge bone of contention with people who love and use these forums and don't go to Reddit. Reddit gets a ton of love from Riot- LCS changes, direct communication, heck even Tryndamere posted there. However, very little of that gets reflected on these forums in a timely manner. Can you at least (when publishing important information that is intended for all players) ensure that the same information is VISIBLY posted on the forums at the same time it's posted elsewhere?

That's another small issue that really irks me- the fact that the "news" section isn't tied to the Red Tracker. If you're going to make us go to a completely different place to get news on your own site, make it brain-dead easy to know that something happened. Maybe a little (!) mark next to the News icon on the tool bar when new information has been added?

Or just bring back the Announcements section that was tied to the Dev Tracker?
Well everything posted on the News section is on the front page of leagueoflegends.com, and there's always the navigation bar on the top. I believe it utilizes that new community beta forum, but as far as I can tell the Dev Tracker only looks at these forums. I would imagine that as that beta forum gets more developed, we'll see more features with it, although I can't comment on any specific features.

I agree that cross-posting is probably the best (I'm a fan of bringing information TO players aka using as many as possible: Reddit, forums, Twitter, etc.) but from what I can tell a lot of red posts you see both here and on Reddit are responses to an already ongoing conversation as opposed to a conversation a Rioter has started. It would be slightly awkward in some scenarios to do cross-posting, but again I'm mostly in agreement here.

Thanks Xelnath for clarifying the Reddit situation. I've literally only started reading Reddit (not just the LoL subreddit) like two weeks ago >_>;;

@ Riot

Would any of you ever be willing to join (either as a participant or a join shoutcaster) some Ranked workshops we host with the community?

It's not a huge event but we do it consistently every Sunday afternoon and area always looking for new people to join from both ends of the spectrum.

Basically we pair up people of similar rating in assigned roles, host a mock tournament and shoutcast the matches offering specific advice on areas where they should focus their improvement as well as insight into how the play their chosen role more successfully (with a focus on carrying solo queue)


I know you guys are busy but it would be absolutely phenomenal if we were able to attract extra participation (in any form)

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess you guys need tons and tons probably months of data on a champion to even began touching it...unless its a release just banned on sight everyone knows its broken aka "kassadin" type.

Which reminds me, if this guy has a 90% banrate Xel why hasn't he just been idk deleted or just left underpowered so we can stop banning him? We waste a ban on kassadin like every game.
