League of Legends is color biased.

The current League of Legends metagame favors the purple team over the blue team when it comes to minion waves. A custom game with only me inside jungling and NOT touching any minion waves kills off blue nexus before 35:00:00, and once blue middle inhibitor falls it attracts the aggro of the other lanes, causing a rapid decline in blue's top and bottom pushes and about 5 mins later the other two inhibs die and gg.

Not only that but at the start of the game, the jungler (who starts at blue golem) gets two people from bot AND mid to join in "leashing" whereas a person on blue team starting at blue golem only gets mid and top to help unless bot wants to waste precious cs on helping, which would be very detrimental.

So, any plans on fixing this, or does riot not consider this to be a threat to game balance since red gets to push lanes with far less effort.

Thoughts/opinions/trolls?

Actually, when I first started playing this game in open beta, I came across the same thing too and posted about it as well. However, the response I received was something along the lines that there are just too many factors that play into a normal game that wouldn't really put the minions of one team to be greater than the other.

in regards to which jungler gets x amount of people. thats not true, only current meta decides that. theres no reason why top lane can't have two people.

in other extreme test of minions killing nexus before blue does. I guess only defence in that one would be doesn't blue team get a slight sight advantage?

And the largest demographic for League of Legends is white. It's nothing to do with Riot hating black people (Aphromoo wouldn't be allowed to be a pro, most likely, if that were true), it's just that the majority of players probably prefer a white champion.

Better count again. Is Alistar, Amumu, Anivia, Blitzcrank, Cassiopeia, Cho'Gath, Dr. Mundo, etc. all white? Do you really count all the yordles, such as Corki and Heimerdinger as white when they aren't even human?

And I'll leave you with a link to a song from one of my favorite Jewish bands Nofx: Don't Call Me White

He said "over 50," not "every other champ." And I believe his comment was meant to point out the disproportional ratio of champions with dark complexions v. those with light complexions. Obviously many of the "white" champions are Asian. Regardless, the OVERWHELMING majority of human characters in LoL are fair-skinned. We have every right to ask "Why?"

Riot, why are "humans" in your game by-and-large represented as having light skin complexions?
Riot, why are "women" in your game by-and-large represented with unrealistic figures- especially, seemingly swollen breasts- and comparatively little armor or clothing in general?
(I'll grant that warriors would tend to be physically fit, but logistically speaking, large breasts are an absolute impediment to athletic mobility and execution.)

And yes, those are questions for Riot staff to answer, not just any unoriginal juvenile bigot sexist troll on here. Thanks.

There's not over 50. I say you need to learn how to count too.

[edit]Here's a link to the list of total champions if you need some help: http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_champions

Stop to think about the substance of the comments/conversation and reread my comment. ~95% of "human" LoL champs are light-skinned. That is the point that is being raised. The original comment made about this was in reference to the ratio, not the quantity on one side or the other. At the rate Riot is going, there will soon enough be 400 light-skinned champs and about 7 with darker skin complexions.
The point is: right now, looking over the list of champions, it is "hard to find" a dark-skinned champion when scanning. Eventually, at this rate, it will be more literally like finding a needle in a hay stack. This is an issue if you value diversity. Riot seems not to.
