Morgageddon is tired from flag football.

Hey Morgageddon, it's been a while since I last poked my head in here but I just wanted to ask if you could help me out with the subject of my last support ticket? About the game being too zoomed in ever since you guys updated Summoner's Rift? ._. I can't really play properly in a PvP setting until this gets fixed... and the support guys just filtered me out with the most asinine copy-pasted questions/responses for the first 5-7 days of the ticket, so I figured I would ask you since you (hopefully) won't use preset responses :c

Cuppycakes, due to how the game is coded, you will get more surface area in terms of vision in game if you swap down to a resolution such as 1280x720, or 1280x768 (windowed borderless). The reasoning behind this that to use all 1280x1024 correctly without stretching sideways, you have extra vertical height over extra horizontal. When you downgrade to a 16:10 or 16:9 screen resolution, the game will display more horizontally than vertically, and your overall "What I can see next to me" will increase. Hope this helps.

That's just SO strange because I KNOW for a fact that it wasn't always like this, and it happened directly after the Rift update. I guess the coding must have changed then.

The thing is I did try lowering my res to something else before, but never went lower than 800. So all I noticed is that it gave the illusion of more screen space when it didn't, really. But lowering it now to 1280x720, although it looks sorta blurry... It actually feels SO much better. Thanks. It's nowhere near perfect but it's something I guess. The support person I last talked to just said to lower the HUD scale and I was like >_< "But then I can't read mob health or anything!" I guess I'll need to grab a better sized monitor then? What size would you recommend then?

Morgageddon sorry for asking a question so quickly again, but have there been any reports of people dying randomly when at low health, or people getting kills when it should be executions?

By random at low health I mean that the character still has health left over like 200 hp and just dies from some unknown force no minons, no ignite, no invis nid spear that you cant see and no dot that's slowly killing you. you just die at low health, but not zero. The last time I saw it happen was when a volis passive triggered and his health went up to 500 hp after a fight then he just died.

The reason I'm asking is last week and some this week me and my friends died randomly. One time i was even in the process of going b when my champ just fell over dead and said Elise got the kill who was already dead.
this event has happened so far about 4 times in game that I have seen for myself and several other times from friends. It usually happens in top lane and has happened 3 times with Elise and once with Jayce.

I thought about submitting a ticket or posting on bug reports. (I did the later actually) I realized however I don't have any screen shots because whenever I try to take screen shots on LoL I just get my home screen.

completely unrelated have you ever said things in games that you shouldn't have while irritated/angry/wishing you could deny your own teammates?

also I call first dibs on playing normal's with you gosh knows I need all the help I can get.

Any size will work in terms of inches. However, I'd recommend at least 1920x1080 for standard resolution nowadays.

Not as far as I can tell, it may be a lag that you experience which causes abilities to not be seen, several seconds where your network has issues. Also, use F12 to capture screenshots in game, they'll show up in the C:/Riot Games/League of Legends/Screenshots/... folder

Even tho this question doesn't relate to your line of work I was wondering if you could tell us what the all time best selling skin is? I'm guessing that you do not know but after reading my question you become extremely interested in finding out for yourself

So Morgageddon, how did you become such a people person? You always seem to appear when you're needed and always so calm and collected about it.

Have you ever played Ahri? If so, did you like her play style? And what do you think of her balance? (I'm asking purely for opinions, nothing about the design teams or anything).

Morgageddon takes a mini-break...

I do not know actually, I'm not involved in billing or skins sadly.

So Morgageddon, how did you become such a people person? You always seem to appear when you're needed and always so calm and collected about it.

After a long arduous trek, leveling up personality, combat prowress and agility to deal with all the difficulties, I came upon the summit of higher communication skills and decided to take a nap...

In reality, it's just something I learned on my own over the years. Most people react nicely to considerate posts and replies, and it's not hard to listen to a response and then reply back with the appropriate knowledge and opinion that may help foster better understanding between both parities. A lot just has to do with being in the right spot at the right time.

Have you ever played Ahri? If so, did you like her play style? And what do you think of her balance? (I'm asking purely for opinions, nothing about the design teams or anything).

OPINION STARTING
I've played a bit of Ahri. It's nothing like my 1000+ games on Morgana, but it's also not just one. She's got high mobility, and her charm is a very unique spell for engage/disengage. As such, the fact she has true damage on a spell makes her inheriently hard to balance due to the fact that no matter the hp/resists of an enemy, she can always be counted on doing X damage every X second with just the base ability. Overall, I would think her damage to minions on her Q could be lowered but coutnered with an increase to champion damage, since she can farm a bit easier than an assassin should be in my opinion.

OPINION ENDING

Morgageddon, assuming you don't directly deal with the server base, do you have any idea what could be causing ping(ms) spikes in game after 3.9 patch...? I've already disabled ip helper service and ipv6, and I want to say it may have gotten worse after the udyr patch came out.
