I agree with the video made by TheAngryHoneyBadger, everything Curse Voice adds is already in the game.

Good call on the rest of it though.
I'm surprised a huge amount of the playerbase does not know that there's a green dot next to your teammates icon on the left indicating whether their ult's are up or not.

Neither does curse voice. Do some research you mindless peon.

To people complaining about the voice chat reason:

The reason why curse's voice chat isn't allowed but others are is because of how it matches you with other players in game that are complete strangers to you. Due to that it can create some problems riot can't fix, like if the person trolls and is a jerk or worse to you. The reason why skype, etc. is okay is because it allows you to talk to people you chose and/or know personally to talk to.

Just my 2 cents to get the people to understand stuff, hope it helps.

LoLReplay pulls from the spectator data, which is something separate in our context from the client. When we draft the more "formal" wording of the policy in the coming days it should help clarify this.

So what's the policy on 3rd-Party Custom Skins?

See: http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com...d.php?t=701772

"We want the community to be empowered to contribute to the League of Legends experience (as long as it doesn’t clash with the above!)." - I wouldn't say reskins warp interactions between players.

Yet,
"No software should interfere with the League of Legends player experience between when you press “Play” and the end of game screen." - This seems to state that custom skins (which are definitely a part of the player experience - ie: previously used to help colorblind users, arachnophobes) aren't allowed.

Ok so what about the smartphone apps that keep track of timers? What's Riots stance on those? Don't they apply the same "unfair advantage" to people who don't download them?
