Meh, riot can make an easy workaround and disable names in champ select.

After all, LoLking only uses the data available in our profiles. Dunno why that's so terrible. It's only annoying if people look other people up during champ select.

I don't know why you guys are complaining. If you don't want people to see bad stats, then how about win your games?

riot already closed some statistics which lolking used, you cannot check normal winrates anymore

not true, riot could cut them most of their statistics if it really wanted it


Yes but they cannot cut them from stats and still give players stats.

Valve didn't delete anything, they merely added an option to disable 3rd party sites being able to collect players statistics.


Yup, wish Riot would do this too. Lolking just gives people another tool to troll with.

Lolking gathers a wealth of statistics that helps a lot in analyzing what builds are most effective on different champions as well as which champions may be over or underpowered.

Tl;dr Lolking makes LoL better.

Anytime an app or 3rd party source comes around with a means of providing information a gaming community finds ways to abuse it to the point of demonizing it.

Even still... what's the problem? Report the extremists who harass you and move on. If someone decides they don't want to play with you... not a big deal.
