*UPDATE 1: I didn't realize how crazy popular this thread would become. I posted it on my birthday (16 April) and thought I'd update it every now and then, but was swamped with school work at the time. Should be updating it more often now and even more when I graduate.*

*UPDATE 2: Finally graduated and have some time to actually put in this thread. Going to go through every single post and update the main list. I'm also adding to the third post some balance changes that are minor but could really be used by some under appreciated Champions.*

*UPDATE 3: My contest just finished so I'll be spending more time updating this list and cleaning it up in the next week. Make sure to keep posting your thoughts and feedback!*


Hello! Below is a large number of quality of life (QoL) changes that I've compiled for a while.

Hopefully, we might be able to get some of these implemented!

Note: I've been making this list for a while, so some of them have already been implemented (and are thus not bolded). I've omitted most tool tip improvements, as there are a ton that could use some form of rewording. Additionally, some are technically buffs, but improve usability, keep consistency, or fix minor problems.

If you have any other suggestions on QoL improvements you'd like to see, post below! Remember, this is less about Champions getting buffs, but more about improving how they function.

***** Version 1.01

Champions:

Ahri
- Charm particle better matches the actual hit box

Akali
- Buff showing remaining duration on smoke
- If Mark of the Assassin kills a target it restores energy instead of needing to also attack (to make last hitting less risky for Akali's already weak pre-level 6 phase)

Amumu
- Despair shows fractions of % gained by AP (to let people know it is actually giving them something)

Anivia
- Buff placer for how many seconds ultimate has been active
- Decreased mana cost on ultimate to compensate for Blue buff nerf
- Better attack animation to make last hitting easier
- Ability to re-cast Crystallize to remove it, in cases where you trap allies accidentally
- Improved particle effect for "Chilled" targets that will take double damage from Frostbite; could be shown for Anivia only
- Crystallize no longer has path finding look for a way around the wall if it is pass a certain distance (thus causing you to turn around and head a different direction completely); instead if there is no path easily around the wall then path finding simply takes you to the wall

Annie
- Ability to control Tibbers by using 'R' similar to Viktor's ult controls
- Tibbers automatically attacks the closest nearby enemy Champion when summoned

Brush

- Better visual indicator or animation that a ward is dying

Skill-Shots
- Have them originate from the center of the character, so skills won't randomly miss when jungling or casting to directly adjacent enemies

Game Engine
- Attack speeds can dynamically adjust with current attack animations; that is if someone starts an attack animation at the last 0.1 seconds of Wither the entire attack is not slowed, instead only that last 0.1 second of the attack is slowed (this can create weird instances where not attacking for 0.1 more seconds would have been more beneficial than simply attacking)
- Targeted attacks and spell projectiles grant assists if launched before the target dies


Smart-Cast With Radius
- Option for 'Smart-Cast with Radius' for each skill instead of all or nothing

HUD

-
Tenacity tool tip shows current total Tenacity (combination of items and skills)
- Ability to select an allies portrait icon on the left side of the screen for their stats even if they are dead
- Items update their stats, such as wards time indicator, when selected and not currently on screen
- Display only fades when your Champion is dead, does not become completely black and white (allows dead allies to still identify characteristics by color, such as green vs pink wards)
- Using Alert Ping on yourself indicates that you want allies to "Cover me"
- Using Retreat Ping on yourself indicates that you are "Falling back"

- Fix buffs and debuffs having the incorrect borders (Time Warp from allies has a red border, Abyssal from enemies has a green border, etc.)
- Fix the "click on Shop to purchase" taking priority over the escape Menu

Controls
- Ability to set a toggle that allows only selecting Champions (enemy and ally)

Spectator
- Keeps Chat Box visibility settings between games

- Ability to click on character's info box to get a full stat break down (cooldowns, spell vamp, life steal, hp regen, mana regen, etc)
- Ability to move Champions in the bottom mid info box to match Champions up to easier compare stats
- Fix bugs not showing cooldown on side bar stats (for Summoner Spells and sometimes ultimates)


Recall
- Sound when Recall is broken even if not currently on the screen
- Recall icon shows that it is being cast as the channel bar sometimes gets covered up from the shop

Tutorial
- Something indicating what "1000" range is so users have a better idea of what movement speed, attack range, and ability range numbers mean

Passives
- Innate passives with status information in buffs (e.g. Ahri, Annie, Ashe, etc) are now also shown on the passive itself in order to be easily tracked among a large number of buff icons (this applies to: Ahri, Alistar, Anivia, Annie, Ashe, Blitzcrank, Caitlyn, Cassiopeia, Ezreal, Fiora, Garen, Gragas, Graves, Irelia, Jax, Karthus, Leblanc, Lee Sin, Malphite, Malzahar, Maokai, Master Yi, Miss Fortune, Nidalee, Nocturne, Nunu, Pantheon, Riven, Shen, Sivir, Sona, Teemo, Udyr, Vayne, Volibear, Wukong, Xin Zhao, Yorick, Ziggs) :
"- Champs that place stacks/debuffs on enemies would not benefit, despite the obvious stacking nature of their passive (e.g. Gangplank).
- Champs with passives on cooldowns and counters need this the most and obviously, but even Alistar can benefit from having it brighten and decay over the Trample duration.
- Vayne's passive icon could be dull (like spells with no targets in range, e.g. Starcall) and then brighten up when its enhancing MS.
-As a general rule, passives that are ready to use could have a slight glow-y border. Sona's should glow the color of the corresponding proc.
-Yorick/Irelia/Wukong would just display the # of ghouls/enemy champs active/within range."

Inconsistencies
- What Champions gain MR/level; most melee do but a select few (Cho'gath, Galio, Gragas, Maokai, Poppy, Rammus, Shen, Singed) do not for no rhyme or reason (http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_champions%27_magic_resistance)
- Auto-attack modifiers sometimes working on towers (innate: Caitlyn, Graves, Fiora, Jax, Yi, Xin, Noct, Pantheon, Nunu, Shyvana W/R
; skills: Xin's W, Poppy's W, Taric's Q, Udyr's R, Volibear's W) and sometimes not (innate: Shen, Skarner, Renekton, Orianna, Shyvana Q, and Renekton / Tryndamere which both don't gain Fury but stops its decay, while Shyvana gains Fury; skills: Kennen's W, Fiora's E, Twisted Fate's E)

Dominion
- Nexus Obelisk deals damage to invulnerable targets; such as caused by Poppy's and Kayle's ultimate

Proving Grounds
- Nexus Obelisk deals damage to invulnerable targets; such as caused by Poppy's and Kayle's ultimate


Twisted Treeline
- A lot.

***

Out-of-Game Improvements:

Masteries / Runes
- Bladed Armor no longer can kill Ancient Golem or Elder Lizard (thus stealing the buff you might be giving to an ally)
- Ability to re-arrange the order of Rune Pages and Mastery Pages
- Remove number rounding and show the actual result
- Scout increases vision range of wards by 10% from 5% (rarely actually taken); or Scout increases duration of wards by 5%

IP/XP Per Win Bonus
- The ability to turn it on or off so it isn't automatically used by playing Co-Op games, but people still have the option of using it for Co-Op games

Post Game Screen
- Have a statistic for total gold gained through gp/5 items and runes

PVP.net Client
- Ability to see current ping and latency with Riot servers
- Increased penalty for dodging Draft Normal (longer time involved in banning / picking should mean increased penalty)
- Hosts that skip all 3 bans are kicked for being AFK instead of waiting until after everyone has selected Champions (still potentially viable, but less likely due to the new AFK detection system)
- When given invitation rights in "Arranging Team..." you are able to right click to invite someone from chat rooms like the host
- Bot names are sorted alphabetically when adding a bot to a Custom Match
- Re-classify all the Champion tags (e.g. Udyr, Nautilus, Nocturne not listed as a jungler)
- Ranked Stats include percentage statistics, such as win % and kill ratios
- Custom Games remember the settings for last created map and game type

- Notification when someone accepts your Friend Request
- Friend list option to notify you went a certain friend logs online

Forum
- Redirects to last visited page when you log-in to your account
- Button to go to the "Last Red Post" in addition to "First Red Post"


Note: I'll update this list with other suggestions that are popular and/or make logical sense.

Suggested Balance Changes: (More to come and some from above to be merged with this)

Ezreal: (Stats compared to ranged AD with escape mechanisms: Corki, Caitlyn, Graves, Tristana)
- Health to 375 from 350 (vs. Corki 375, Caitlyn 390, Graves 410, Tristana 415)
- Health per level to 82 from 80
(vs. Corki 82, Caitlyn 80, Graves 84, Tristana 82)
- Armor to 13 from 11
(vs. Corki 13.5, Caitlyn 13, Graves 15, Tristana 15)

Fiddlesticks:
(Stats compared to similar Champions: Malzahar, Swain, Veigar)
- Dark Wind cooldown decreased by 1 second (15/14/13/12/11 to 14/13/12/11/10)
(Compared to Swain's Nevermove CD)
- Innate Passive scales with level: 10 (level 1), 15 (level 7), 20 (level 13)
(Helps him mid/late game when Fiddlesticks tends to fall off without his ult)
- Base attack damage increased slightly to 49 from 45.95
(Veigar's 48.3, Swain's 49, Malzahar's 51.66)
- Attack gain increased slightly to +3 from +2.625
(Swain's +3, Malzahar's +3)
- Base armor increased to 13 from 11
(Swain's 12, Malzahar's 15)
- Base mana decreased to 250 from 251.
(Just weird for no reason?)
- Mana per level increased to +60 from +59.
(Just weird for no reason? It effectively gives him the same starting mana and a total of 17 more mana at the end of the game)

Leona's e animation/hit predictor is off. The tip of the sword will appear to hit a champion, but she wont rush forward. It make's it hard to aim correctly.


Edit: YES! Fixed two days later in hercarim patch

Trying to stay away from pure buffs. I only mentioned the better stats on Ezreal because there is no reason why he has lower stats when other ranged DPS have just as much mobility. I was hesitant to even mention that though.

People who are reported should be put in a lower-priority matchmaking queue so they can ruin each-other's games.

Strap a cone to the end of Graves' ult indicator.

A freakin' range indicator on Absolute Zero.

Xerath's W indicator showing his shortest range, so I know Mage Chains will work before activation.
