I've had it when I reroll away Singed and then the enemy team must have rolled INTO Singed. Kinda makes me feel like I've passed it to them, but I've never seen a mirror match up so far. I'm not sure that it can happen - don't you need a baseline amount of champions to take part in ARAMs anyway?

Part 1: Boards

So you're probably aware at this point that North America is in the process of switching over to the Boards format which you can find here: http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/ and you can sign in with your EUW credentials if you change to EUW at the top.

We too are planning to switch over at some point to the Boards format - don't worry, we won't be shutting down the forums right away - and really I just wanted to get your thoughts on the look, if you've used it, the feel and the content.

It should be noted straight away that though Boards uses the "upvote/downvote" format, one click can display your frontpage like the current forums (i.e. chronological comment order, as opposed to nested replies), if that's more your sort of thing. But yeah, if you have any questions, I'm heading up the rollout of Boards over in Europe along with Rahares, and I'd like to use this time to get your feedback.

--

Part 2: EU English

While I'm here, we are also throwing around the idea of unifying the EUW and EUNE English boards to make sure everyone here gets the same information no matter where you're playing in EU English. The only location-specific content for English is about server status, and those posts would be confined to the Service Status board anyway. Plus, we'd probably tag it with an [EUW] or [EUNE]. One glance at the EUNE GD suggests that you guys talk about a lot of the same stuff.

The other great thing that this would bring about is more interaction with developers (even the NA Rioters!) as they would not have to double up when making announcements/Q&As.

I don't want to force this decision on everyone here but I'd love to hear your thoughts, both positive and negative.

In my opinion playing against Tristana is all about grabbing the window of opportunity. She has a mediocre early game, and a relatively weak mid-game compared to other ADCs, and this could be exploited through aggressive trades and smart ganks.
Remember, her explosive shot passive often contributes to lane push so your mid or your jungler can gank from behind her.
Her rocketjump isn't a "Get out of jail free" card either. It has a cast time that (while small, can still be interrupted) and a very long cooldown, especially with just one point (and she usually maxes it last).

My advice? If you have trouble against her, go aggressive before she gets scary, bait out her rocket jump and have your jungler pounce on her! Try to coordinate with your midlaner too, especially if you have a champ with high mobility or high burst, that can still take her out regardless of rocket jump. And remember: don't leave her alone to farm, or she's going to hyper very fast

Players, This Tuesday, on September 9th, we're planning to perform EUW chat server maintenance. The works are scheduled to start at 2am GMT+1 and should last for approximately 2 hours. Although the in-game chat is going to be available at all times, we will still keep ranked queues disabled, as there are multiple other services that might affect the competitive game play in Leagues. Below is the list of affected systems during that maintenance window:

- Chat: platform chat (out-of-game group chats) won't work at all: public rooms, custom rooms, arranged teams chats, pre- and post-game chats.
- Friends: ability to invite people to be your friends, including friends lists and ignore lists, will be disabled.
- Store: you won't be able to send gifts to friends.
- Match History: you won't be able to preview your friends' match history.
- Team Builder: suggested invites list won't be populated.

We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.

Loss Prevented mode automatically disables Ranked queues and the Leaverbuster. However, this time the Live Producer decided to only disable ranked (which is a single and separate hook) and do not enter Loss Prevented mode. We don't have any global platform/game servers/connection issues to protect our players from, so the goal we're aiming here for is just to prevent new games from starting, as we want to perform the DB cluster restart asap.

Yes, it's due to the delays in updating LP. We see the problems on some League boxes, but to be double safe before the peak today, we've decided to restart the entire DB cluster. It's a very quick action, but we will first have to wait until all ranked games are drained. Our priority is to keep the game results (Leagues) stored properly, so we decided to do it asap.

Hi guys,

Sorry about that - there was a connection hiccup towards our datacenter for EU West, which caused a large amount of players to be disconnected. The amount of reconnects that followed created a login queue. The queue should be on its way to be empty very soon however.

Thank you for your patience!

As for live events in the context of fairs and things like that, even the biggest organizers of online tournaments have troubles to transfer their knowhow on live stage to satisfy the demand of hunderd of people because of technical and financial troubles, create a task force for live events not limited only to the biggest events within the national communities could offer a better live experience at those kind of events, imho
Oh don't worry, I didn't mean to make you feel I was telling you were bashing us, don't worry haha, I was just quoting
The Prized Events page also takes offline tournaments into account; we've supported several LAN events as an example

We do collaborate closer with offline events where we feel that a lot of value could be added if that's what you mean ^^, there's been events where we've collaborated where we've either built our own booth or also supported in different ways, it also depends on what type of event it is, but I've seen tons of different events having been supported.

Cheers man!

I actually find listening to music helps a lot when I feel myself getting frustrated. Other tips: play with friends, take a break between games, even just a 5 minute one, have a walk around and drink some soda or juice or something. Also remember that the game will be over soon and you'll be able to play a new one shortly after!

Interesting thoughts, but this isn't the first time League has gone through graphical changes. Admittedly the SR overhaul is the largest change we've done graphically, but champion VUs happen all the time, and they are for the better, right? These processes are gradual for the most part, because obviously we want to share cool stuff as soon as it's ready, and not make the game feel alien if you decide to come back after a few weeks' break.

I completely understand your concern but even Runescape's popularity comes in waves; hell, right now it's in the top 12 most watched games on Twitch. That's not an easy thing to accomplish by any means!

I guess i can understand about announcing local events in their specific language, but in all honesty i wouldnt consider it a spam ( well, maybe ). If the event is somewhat small the it would make sense.

Could I suggest something ? Have you thought of making a schedule showing which events Riot will visit during said period ?

For example: For the next two months Riot will be going to these gaming events (showing every country and the name of every event).

That way players will know the information in advance and you would spend less time annoucing the local events in different forums. Just like the monthly Schedule for the skin sales, instead of announcing it every week, you pile them up and show them in advance.

Maybe you are doing this already, I honestly do not know.

Thanks once more for the replies

since im sometimes travelling to spain, i would also love attending an event there.
You guys have brought a good point in here :3 and a good idea btw!

That's something that's been discussed for quite a while. We do feel it could be good to do something like that, but requires some time to be discussed and then developed. Having short discussions and fast development could lead to a useless tool, and a calendar leads to a lot of questions yet to be adressed before even thinking on building it. There are some events we want to give more visibility to, and the calendar could be a brilliant idea to do so, although right now it's been a success the fact that we've given visibility over those events we've attended through our site, patcher, client, social media, etc

Hey DELDE115 and hello everyone!

I just wanted to give a bit more of visibility over some topics that have been talked in here

Riot Ariya has already explained everything related to Gamescom, but I also wanted to talk a bit more about events happening in EU by answering some of the questions being asked by DELDE115.

Quote:
Originally Posted by DELDE115 View Post

This is actually a good opportunity for me to talk a bit more into how we're handling local events and most importantly, how we inform players about where and when are we going to X or Y event.

Unlike NA, as DELDE115 also pointed out, EU has 11 websites (NA has one), all of them localized for the country we're referring to, but most importantly, adding local content to each of the sites (including client, patcher, etc). With this we have then already 2 types of content; the one that gets shipped to all languages (as it's more of a central content (champ. rotations, for example)), and the one that's been shipped to a country or set of countries (example: event happening in UK, or Poland, or Greece, or [Insert country here])

As content gets shipped locally, not all EU players are aware of all events that are happening. Our reasoning behind this is that we don't really think that an event happening in Greece makes much sense to be announced in Spain, as spanish players would not really care at all, because they will most probably not attend there (unless it's an event such as the Allstars, which then would be shipped also to all countries). Local events are not announced in all websites, because then, they would all be flooded with content that might not be of everyone's interest.

[...]

Europe has alot of countries where prices change dramatically ( depending on the economic situation of said country ), and not every event is in the same place, I have to take a plane like everyone here which costs more than a two day trip from one state to another.
That's actually a very good point, and that's why I'm putting a lot of emphasis at local events. Even though in EU everyone could also rent a car, it feels different moving from a country to another one because of the amount of languages that are held in EU

Because of that, we focus also a lot in local events, and I'll dig a bit more into that afterwards.

Quote:

[...]

In Europe we have to PRAY and wish that the next gaming event is in our country, if its in the UK, you have to buy a plane ticket or go by boat, AND Pounds cost more than the Euro. The only event in Europe where Riot goes every year is Gamescom.
I'd say I disagree here, and let me explain why

I think here you're refering to UK because you've read in the english website that we've attended an UK event, but if you go to another of the languages you'll find out we've announced other events (not at the same time, as they occur separately), and as an example, I'll let you know which ones have I worked in over the last couple of months

[Hungary] Hungarian Event
[Spain] Gamergy
[Spain] Tenerife LAN Party
[Spain] Dreamhack Valencia
[Europe] Teemo Scouts EU (although not an event it it's full meaning (booth), it's been an event where we met with players )

Note: Reason I've worked in spanish events is because I work for the spanish team ^^, but like me, we have members serving all countries attending tons of events in different countries (and still looking for more peepz to join us! )

However, and again, we haven't announced the spanish events happening in Spain in the english, polish, greek, [insert other language that's not spanish here] website, because if we announce all events we're attending over all languages and all website, it'd be literally a spam ^^.

Gamescom was announced in all websites because it's also very important for all countries as these hold not only the LCS Regionals, but also we've built our biggest booth there, but it doesn't mean we don't do other stuff

We're more than aware that not everyone can go everywhere, as flights are sometimes damn expensive, but this is also why we've moved events all over the world. As Riot Ariya has pointed out, LCS has been in different countries, as we want to give the opportunity to everyone to enjoy them ^^


Hope this answer has given a bit more of visibility over how we're attending events! If you have other questions I'd be glad to answer them guys!

Cheers!
