This is pretty much what white chocolate is, except white chocolate is a k. It's gross.

You seem to be uninformed on how chocolate is made. White chocolate is actually made from cocoa butter, a fat obtained from the cocoa bean, milk chocolate is a combination of cocoa butter and cocoa powder, and dark chocolate is basically all cocoa powder. So in fact white chocolate is not "industrial byproduct based,". However it is not chocolate in a technical sense as its main ingredient is only a byproduct of the cocoa bean.

You know... I once wondered how they tasted so different. I never thought I'd learn this on the LoL forum boards though. Thank you for that tidbit.

Actually, I stand corrected. I looked into this and found the reason we're not doing Ranked on launch is to make sure the rankings are meaningful. Summoner's Rift had a lot of "cook time" before Season 1 to let players learn how to play and such. We want to afford that same opportunity to Dominion.

So Ranked will be coming out, but we wanna let people get their feet wet first.

Makes sense. Otherwise you'll have a bunch of Casey Nelsons in the 2k Elo range.

We're shipping ranked in Dominion, just not right on launch.

This thread is now about chocolate.
i understand why u wouldnt put it out in ranked yet. is it because lvl 30 people will play it ranked before normal without enough practice. that would just kill all of our elos

It's to make sure the map is balanced and to let people get used to the map. He said that like three posts above yours.

Bookmarked, will hold you to this.

P.S. don't overcook it; don't get me wrong as thrilling as passively farming for twenty minutes is I'd much rather play the game type where it's aggression right out of the gate.

White chocolate is underrated by the masses.
