Riot, Really /equalize

Riot why would you even add this? You know that more than half the pbe is trolls and south Americans who say "EASY NOOBS" whenever they get a kill. I don't understand the logic behind this, no team would ever do this in the pbe, let alone the online servers with players who wouldn't sacrifice gold to give the other team a chance.

If you are going to add some sort of "equalizer" why don't you make it a passive thing that happens when the team is getting crushed like 30/5 and they only have 4 players who are so behind its impossible to catch up.

You can't really test this function in the pbe because about 2/5 or 4/10 of the players (rough estimate) are actually testers. Players would rather get the easy win than give the other team a chance EVEN HERE. This disgusts me because i am actually testing on the pbe and other players wont test to throw the game.

Please consider an alternative to this /equalize because like i said no one actually uses this function.

It's fine as it is, it's just in the hands of the players. I like having responsibility as a tester.

Well considering i have only seen this used once, i believe that if put on the na/eu servers, it will Not be used for testing purposes and no one will use it period. There is no sympathy in this game having seen what its like on the pbe i doubt it ill be used on the na/eu anyways.

er it's PBE, it's just for testing...

It won't ever be added to the main client because there really isn't any purpose.

actually most people likely downvoted because it sounds like your whinging about a feature that you DONT have to use. There is a reason they added it in, but your not required to use it. just like surrendering, you can vote no if you dont want to

When I play pbe bot games people use it. It's always interesting to see how it effects the bots build paths.

I was *JUST* in a game where we used it, and then the enemy team got a decent advantage, and they used it, and then we got an advantage, and we used it. It was a VERY close game that lasted almost an hour, with neither side having anyone that was a remotely negative influence. It was great, and I wish there were enough players like that, so that didn't feel like a one-in-a-thousand kind of game.
