You can live without lolking, no need to panic. It's okay, if you wanna be a sheep I'm sure people can tell you who is the flavor of the season on the forums for each lane.

Yeah, it's a really good tool for that, but unfortunately, some people can't have access to resources like that and use them responsibly.

I'd rather Riot just add the information you can find on lolking to your profile.

I'd say keep lolking I like to hop on there every once in a while and see which champs are currently getting played a lot/ items are getting more love for builds and rates. So unless riot plans on merging lolking or providing all the info lolking has (they also have champion guides like moba fire) keep it.

I'd prefer Lolking making it so that you can make your profile private. The data and stuff it provides is nice, people looking you up and using that as an excuse to insult you or dodge games is not.

If riot shuts lolking down those of us with a second comp and a smurf can still get almost the same set of info. Lolking gives you a way to look up profiles while in game and the ability to see elos below 1250. A second computer and a smurf account (or possibly using certain tactics like running lol in a vm - dunno if this works) will still give you the ability to look up profiles. Riot shutting down lolking without changing how profiles work would just result in giving people like me who can set up two comps side by side an unfair advantage.

I like the graph and stats for you, but I think the everyone been able to veiw it cause problems, I see in some pregame lobbys people bashing each other over their lolking profile.

it's very very rare for me to lolking my team-mates but sometimes I do it because i solo que and any type of info about my team helps me understand how I could accommodate it better.

Usually i only lolking some enemies and 90% are those in bot lane, where you usually find me. Knowing if adc + sup are usually duo que means a lot to me.

In like 3+ years since I've played this game. I can count on 1 hand's fingers how many times ppl started trash talking me bringing up LoLKing into discussion.

I also like lolking contests :3.

There were a number of old sites, back when players could view hidden elo, that would show the hidden elo, # game played, # wins/loss, and % ratio with every champion of other players. Because this was too invasive, Riot withheld a lot of information, and now these systems rely on the same information that could be acquired by players sending in their previous game data to a collective.
