Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Either that or the new Chinese CEO was like "yeah fuck that, give them less IP" at the last minute.

    Please do remember that they were recently the object of a takeover by a foreign investor from a country where people think nothing of grinding an extra hundred hours on a level treadmill just cuz'.

    why does him being chinese have anything to do with anything

    Because that's the stereotype for Chinese MMOs. I'd be saying the same thing if a South Korean company bought them out too. Or getting ready for crashes to desktop if an Eastern European company bought them out.

    Although they have said repeatedly that they aren't going to change anything. Hopefully that holds true.


    It probably won't. The purse strings holder is going to want some input, if not now, then when/if the returns on the investment start to falter. I suspect DOTA 2 is probably going to put the hurt on Riot's income for the short term. Right about then I would expect the new owner to start throwing around their weight.

    Brackhar is an employee of Riot Games, responsible for designing Nidalee, Taric, Anivia, and Cassiopeia. He posts on SA sometimes! Someone asked him about the IP changes. This is what he said:
    I don't have a lot of info aside from Zileas quickly saying "Yeah, we'll fix it."

    So there. It's broken, and going to be fixed. We may calm.

    Holy god, at the new IP rate it's going to take me approximately three thousand games to finish getting the rest of the champions. That's about a year of playing the game thirty hours a week. And that's not even including all of the champions which will be released over the next year.

    And that's with me already having about 50 champions and having spent $70 on this game.

    Ridiculous.

    Edit: Okay, good, I'm very glad it won't be this bad

    ANd the IP changes? I cannot wait to be like "Whoa, what the fuck, dudes" at PAX East.

    Holy mashed potatoes. The Riot forums are now completely clogged with, 'ZOMG ZOMG RIOT SOLD US OUT TO THE CHINESE!!!!' topics.

    *Facepalms*

    ...And I foolishly thought the Red Scare was behind us.


    Yes, Orem, it's just a bug. You'll be back to your regularly scheduled IP ramp shortly. :P

    What bug? AT 80 IP per win it'll take 78 games to get a 6300 champion.

    The current IP being given out by the system is bugged. Thus the low rewards.


    It will be fixed.

    Nah Ryze is fine. Took a game of adjustment but I'm back to where I was. He does much better sustained, and he only does half the damage if the person using him doesn't know to get cdr and in what order to cast his spells.

    I'm not even sure why they took it out. Sure they do have the leaverbuster thing now but an incentive like that is also helpful.

    Care to explain what I am missing? I run CDR runes.

    Would love to know what I'm missing because now he doesn't do nearly as much damage and definitely isn't an assassin?

    Ryze is supposed to be sustained DPS now. Are you spamming those spells? They're supposed to do less damage, but come off of CD much, much faster.

    He's not an assassin, that's the thing. He's not a wtf burst you down at level 6 champ like he used to be. He very much feels like a ranged carry like they said he would be. You farm up early game, get a massive pool of mana, 40% cdr, and you just start flinging spells like a gatling gun.

    Most people are probably trying to play him like the old version, and it just doesn't work that way anymore. The key to damage with him is to weave Q between EVERY spell. Before it was something like ERQW etc. Now it's more like QWQEQR.

    I like saving R for later, since it doesn't give you AP anymore, and there's a dead time where everything is on cooldown after the QWQEQ.

    Sorry, man, I missed that single post where a guy said another guy he knows at SA asked a guy who works at Riot about the IP. The Riot Employee said he talked to another employee and that it would be fixed. Real earth shattering announcement there.

    I hope it'll be fixed.

    So you want to weave Q into attacks and get a full 40% CDR? Is Archangel's Staff still worthwhile as before for the bigger mana pool and bonus to Q?

    Thanks for the Ryze, I was still doing REWQ and definitely wasn't working. I also got smoked early game a few times trying to blow people away like before.

    I am super stoked about this. It means I can run Annie for burst, and Ryze for sustained and not have to choose one over the other!

    Also I can't wait to try out Maokai, his mechanics look like fun.

    Most likely it is just on their internal builds. I doubt changes like this see the PTR (not on the PTR myself so I have no idea) Then they push it to the live server, some unforseen thing doesn't transfer over, or something is not quite right, bug results, they fix issue.

    Essentially we are like a beta test when it comes to changes to the systems in place. I think the PTR is purely for champion balance.

    That's a pretty stupid way to handle things if so

    I mean even in the most crude possible form, just an hour where only Riot emloyees can log in to the live server would have revealed the problem

    Of course that's another hour of QQ about the servers being down, but still seems like a lesser evil to me

    Basically Riot just doesn't seem to be very good at this whole "running a multiplayer game" thing at this point

    If they pushed the patch an hour faster it'd even out.

    Also in the game where we had one item, dorans items were reverted to their previous values in cost.

    So if you have that happen, you will know you are in a deathmatch game, put 5 in a lane and gank away.
