I'm saying it: Last hitting is an archaic game mechanic

won't happen Riot knows where the Money is. Its even funnier since some would argue Riot is not happy with the way the game is played when they build it around it and are the only one who can actually change it.
This whole thread to me sounds more like change for the sake of change.

Problem with this idea is that, a lot of the aggression in lane, is based around last hitting. You need to last hit to get better items, so as the opponent i know that, when one of my minions get low, i can deny you by poking you when you go into try and take it.

No last hitting would pretty much just put an artificial time lock on the game, in which players would all stay in lane for as long as possible accumulating experience and gold. You might even have an occurrence where people stay the maximum gold distance from creep, so that they are safer from ganks. Doing nothing for the first 12 minutes of the game.

Edit: As people have said before me, Dominion is what you are looking for- and is directed towards people of your inclination. Being that it is more fast paced and more about the close quarter tactics, less the over all strategy

WOAH better slow down there.

Never question riot EVER. You either get downvotes or get called a paranoid delusional freak by a red. (Personal experience)

You question the system.......as the saying goes, "The nail that stands up, gets hammered down"

Let's dumb the game down even more.

I like how you used Blizzard as an example, since that's what they do to most of their games too.

Not only change general lane mechanics, but!
Buffs all carries
Nerfs assassins
Every aoe champ owns every lane.

Might as well play dominion if you want free gold.

Aahahahaaha as if this game wasn't casual enough, oh good lord my sides.
Did you complain Farmville was too hard as well?


Mobas based on dota do not work well without this, you clearly haven't played Demigod. They tried this and it was even more casual than LoL.

If you want to play a battle arena go play something like Bloodline champions, it'll probably be too hard for you if last hitting with no competition is too much though.
