makes it too easy for managing buffs. its a skill you practise. having everyone and their mother getting this would overbuff their skill and make them much better than they are.

NO sorry. but im sure ever bronze and silver player wants this.

edit: I am using it why? I would be a fool not too.

Knowing Riot, outlaw curse n 3rd party apps.

Then create timers in game.

Then charge RP to buy the timers.

Profit.

Seriously why can't you make timers in game? Why cant you make a system where your old games are recorded and you can watch them whenever you want to.

well.... if it has to inject into the game it has to modify the games code to be able to get the timer information. pretty sure that alone is against ToS. now if its just modifying skins which doesnt change the code but the images for your client only(so long as you dont make stuff like janas tornados bright red on all of her skins or something stupid on another champ to make it obvious they are using a certain skill.) and not the clients exe or w.e.. so changing the game to add timers to it is probably going to get people into trouble if riot actually cares.

Is it? It used to be that you couldn't see what summoner spells the other team had, so you either had to memorize them at the loading screen or write them down. Players who were diligent in doing this had a slight advantage over those who didn't, and Riot decided they didn't care for this.

In general their philosophy seems to be that good players should be decided by HOW they use the information, not by those who are willing to do all the busywork required to keep track of the information. With this in mind, I think timers should be added.

As the manager of the team who handles our partnerships with third party developers, I just wanted to drop by the thread and let everyone know this was something that was indeed on our radar. We've seen a lot of threads about this in recent days and I felt it was important to make sure you guys knew we were aware of it's importance to you, even though we've not developed a policy around it yet.
Thanks from posting! Glad to know you guys are discussing it. It makes me less worried about the overall prospect of what it could mean for the community as a whole.

Greetings Kchaosrei,

I am sorry for the delay in response and would be happy to assist you with your questions.

The use of third party programs is against our Terms of Use and will be taken action upon if found to be in use. If your friends would like to use a VOIP, there are other options other than Curse Voice that is currently available for use that do not offer the other 3rd party uses.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention and we will be looking into it and taking appropriate action.

Best Regards,
Keyru

Interesting. Thanks for bringing this to my attention, I'll look into it. As I stated earlier we have not decided on an official stance to take on this matter yet, so as of this time I can assure you no action will be taken for the use of Curse Voice.

What is going on with you, Riot?

Why don't you have an absolute for this, such as "this is not allowed UNTIL we allow it?" Because you opened a can of worms people are not comfortable with.

Right now as it stands you must PAY Curse for a key to have this. This is a pay to win scenario. Riot, you gotta do something about this.

Had no idea about this application. Gonna start using it. Please give us (speacially me) a heads up if you decide to outlaw it, so ill unistall it. I dont want to break no rules, but it certainly seems like a fantastic application.


Plz dont outlaw it.
