    Here's my theory that I haven't seen anyone else mentioning: Yone will hit tomorrow. Two weeks is a suspiciously long time to have a blank Spirit Bond, and his absence from the PBE is conspicuous to me.

    More importantly: Why is Riot doing an in-client dating sim now

    I kind of love this event

    They spent a lot of time on it and a bunch of people clearly had fun writing the dialogue/illustrating the virtual novel

    I'm mad, all the spirit blossom skins are so goooooooooooood

    Close, he's dropping 8/6.

    “All I know is that I can’t wait to play Yone as a support for Yasuo like a bad person,” Riot Pls laughs.

    “The brothers bot lane!” Riot Earp interjects. “It’s so good!”

    “We’ll both be 0/10. Get ready,” says Riot Pls.

    “Yeah, but then you’ll win the game because you’ll both hit your 0/10 power spike,” EndlessPillows jokes.

    yessssssssssssssssssssss

    Yeah, I was wrong. That said, this is all clearly Riot's plan to keep Yasuo from hitting 200% ban rate.

    This game really has the worst community of all time, man

    I have had a frustrating time of it in the past few days
    Teams with extremely weak mental (e.g. top spamming surrender starting at 15 when he and his enemy toplane are both 3/3/0, and game is even cs, even kills, and we have better comp+better scaling, and continuing to ff as he gets more and more ahead, and eventually losing the game as he refuses to group, continuously pings me when I die and presumably rages in chat but I muted him, etc) are becoming a bigger problem
    So until I de-tilt I’m playing flex as ahri and Vayne so I get dating game points :D
    Also my shop knows exactly what skins I want (blood moon Sivir and Jhin) but I refuse to give in.
    Relatedly if I were the devs I would ensure that the loot boxes were customized to have a slightly lower chance of giving you skins with a high ‘my shop’ rating, so people had a slightly higher chance of buying skins.

    this game is full of BABIES

    had a malz support refuse to go anywhere close to our ADC because at like 14 minutes they took the enemy bot tower and then ashe went to roam other lanes and malz got mad (?)

    so malz would wander off during teamfights and then die alone somewhere and never use his ult.

    luckily i managed to carry with Sett and we got some good 4 v 1s in their jungle and finally pushed to win.

    but jesus christ, this community sometimes

    I swear it's gotten worse
    My hypotheses are:
    1. pandemic/unemployment stress
    2. leveling accounts to 30 got easier so it is faster to get back into it when your account is banned (although buying a new account is also pretty easy and cheap I think)

    I queued a few games the night before last and each of them had a person who was so tilted that they had no business playing another game, they were practically spamming surrender votes before minions spawned. I'll never understand why people keep doing a thing that is not fun for them.

    @pyromaniac221 because free to play games are literally designed to hook people in and incentivize them to keep playing to grind out unlocks. The unfortunate side effect of this philosophy is that when someone's having a bad time, they're less likely to call it a night and come back another day. Instead they will probably attempt to hang in there and keep queuing for another round even as they get more and more tilted. This gets especially bad in games that have things to unlock that are part of a one-time event, where the deadline before something's 'gone forever' provides additional psychological pressure to keep playing.

    This doesn't explain to me how much of this behavior ends up in ranked though. Most of the unlocked stuff doesn't require climbing the ladder but I still run into tons of mids screaming in all-chat how bad their jungle before the game hits the 15 minute mark.

    I'm really enjoying Lillia, enough that I'll probably do my ranked as jungle/adc or adc/jungle now that I've got her and Kindred and like, Vi/Eve/Sej (if they really need a tank boo hiss).

    Mostly just struggling with playing her in actual teamfights. It feels like she immediately melts if she touches a team even when built semi tanky and lacks any proper dramatic initiation tools/big drama ults to prevent that.

    her whole kit screams either: full tank so you don't melt, or you come in after the initiation. She Q->Rs after someone else starts the party.

    From what I've gotten so far the path is:

    Get early lead, buy jungle Echo, boots and Liandries (or Rylais if there's a bunch of melee you can kite) and then go full tank.

    It's mostly just that build path both prevents you doing enough damage to be an insta gib magic threat and also means you are tanky but can't initiate.

    And yeah that issue of "dear god someone else start the party" can be a big problem in a lot of drafts.

    Don't play her jungle. Play her top. She's much better there.

    Jungle she has no cc for ganks, no burst for ganks, no tankiness, no hard scaling threat, and can't duel most common jungles. She's a mediocre jungler. Garen is a better jungler.

    I dont understand this event at all. But i clicked skip all a few times and got a bunch of champion shards. Had most of them, but still, that's cool. Got an orb for doing something too.

    I also don't understand the event. I don't know why anyone wants a dating sim poured into their league of legends.

    It's not /for/ you

    (...I enjoy a dating sim in my league of legends)

    Oh ok also, reading all the dialogue, half of it is like "I want you to steal object A from champion B". Which is...not what a dating sim should be, right, like you would expect more talk about tragic backstories or emotions. It makes me wonder if it was originally implemented as a game you could click around, or where you received items in an inventory that you had to fetch deliver to different champions. But then that functionality didn't work in the client so they just turned it to dialogue only but kept all of the not emotionally relevant or compelling fetch quest dialogue.

    Learned a couple lessons just now.

    1. Thresh adc is still not viable
    2. It is very important not to afk at champ select after locking in, because your adc may pick Thresh and you will need to dodge if so

    e: Just got matched with a level 28 jungler who had the only champion that he's ever played banned and ended up first-timing malphite to a sub-1.0 kill participation. Nice person, didn't belong in that game, felt bad at how everyone was flaming him for not knowing how to play. Why does riot do this to people

    Wow so it's worth it to watch LoL on their web link during lcs. They were doing bingo, got like 3 masterwork chests. Was actually playing league while it was on in the background on my pc.


    Although it was also on my main tv as i watched it and played aram.

    NA LCS

    WTF happened to C9? they were experimenting a little bit and ok, got a few losses. but they're horrible on the second half of the split and fallen out of top 2. I think they're still the top team in NA, but then again, the way they've been playing....

    Why did no one mention faker got benched? For a 17 year old rookie right after signing faker to a multi year deal ans making him a part owner. Guess the replacement, clozer, had a really good debut too.

    334 cs 35 minute game in which my support inted my lane and ended 1/10. We did eventually win.
    I also semi inted my lane by following a couple of his plays but I muted everyone and farm farm farm so I ended up 2 levels and 150 cs ahead of Ashe :D

    Yone is live! But unless I'm misreading his Spirit Blossom dealio, you don't get a champion shard for him; you get an eternals capsule instead.

    I love* how "jungle dif" is the goto thing that people say when they lose.

    Sure, the enemy jungle was fed, but I was ganking every lane and had the best score on my team...so maybe the issue is somewhere else?

    *hate so much

    When does the spirit bond thing end? Not sure what emotes I want to unlock and have a petal.

  • PenumbraPenumbra Registered User regular
    Probably another week or two, but idk for sure. Yone will be our a week tomorrow, and I think the events have been 3 weeks or so in length recently.

    Speaking of spirit blossom petals, I’m working on the final free one now and I’m curious. Who has everyone been S+ their relationships with? I’ve done thresh and the new deer lady who’s name escapes me at the moment. Assuming I get the 3rd petal, I’m torn between kindred and riven for the final emote.

    teemo is the best emote because it's the only one that actually has an emotion and isn't just a face.

    I grabbed Ahri thus far, will probably get Lillia. I'm not really sure, considering they mostly are just the champion's face--they're not that...well, emotive.
