Morello don't you think it's extremely unprofessional of you as a gaming company to do what you did to Eve and leave her completely worthless for years like that?

Because I do. And you should feel horrible about it. The best you could do is disable her, but you didn't. No, no one "has fun" playing Eve. Seriously. If getting raged at by your entire team and losing the game is fun, then okay.

You are just being the greedy company that you are. You don't disable Eve because you hope that poor unsuspecting players buy her with RP and buy her skins. You just want money, like everyone else.

There is no warning in the client that says "Eve is a useless champ" for new players. To know she's that bad, new players would have to research on it. And that's burden of knowledge. I thought you guys didn't like burden of knowledge?

Greedy and unprofessional, that's just what Riot is.

Why are you suggesting that the president of Antarctica is an alien from Jupiter?

Some of us play in premades, and even sometimes don't play entirely seriously, and gimmick Evelynn/Twitch/Shaco/Akali/Wukong!

Nobody said that:
IF (ReportReason == "Played Evelynn") THEN BanPlayer.
They said:
IF (ReportReason == "Played Evelynn" AND ReportContext == "You were being a jerk and didn't warn your teammates before picking The Worst Champion (in other words, discussed your pick) and/or ignored them when they said Don't Pick It") THEN BanPlayer.

Come on, there is no possible way someone that's level 30 and playing ranked can't realize what Evelynn's reputation is. Anyone who picks her, without discussing it with their team, is going to be treated as a terrorist and pretty much will be the sole cause of the report server breaking down due to overload. Games are absolutely won and lost at character select, and picking Evelynn, an extremely easily counterpicked champion and, when not, still a relatively bad champion, is a great way to piss your allies off. And it's breaking Summoner Code Rule #1, really, so you can get hit for that anyways, even if they don't say it's "for picking Evelynn".

That's blurring the lines. I think you know what I mean.

Riot has much more information due to their behind-the-scenes tracking of all things data. It's much more than just "these champs were chosen more often than others here."

That's not what I asked, what I asked is how can you pick the champion you want to play if no one in ranked will let you?

For example, what if I wanted to try ashe mid? What if I wanted to try a tristana in the jungle to use wookies reference? My team would instantly say no, and would tell me they will report me.

Exactly, because Ranked is not a playground for you to "try things", despite of course this being a game and you should be able to do what you want. If you want to "try things", either go to Normal or Custom, or get a premade together that will agree to what you want to do. It's similar to leaving a game, you flat-out ruin the game for the other four people that want to play serious and raise in the Ranked Ladder if you run a gimmick and they don't want to.

There's absolutely no reason for you to "try things" in Ranked mode that you can't do in Normal Draft.

There's no special meaning behind the quotes around "try things", by the way. Just shortening your post.

He won't say because "But Evelynn was pretty much done and so was Twitch and and what do you mean there's been complications YOU LIED TO ME RIOT" has been an issue. A lot.
