    I summon Dark Magician Zefie in attack mode! Attack Riot employees!

    Anyway, the new system seems rather useless, if someone just shuts up for a few games, the restriction is lifted. Woohoo, 5 games of no flaming for 1 person, unlike the 1 week ban where nobody needs to hear the guy talk for countless games...
    I dunno, doesn't seem like the solution to the problem.
    I doubt there even is one.

    But typing like this in a game where you're often moving around and busy with other things isn't something you can balance the feature around.

    Banning the shit out of toxic players will always be the best solution. Restricted chat is not a penalty at all. -.-

    I can see one way for it to work - if it were to replace a warning.

    Talon is great and is still very viable, but imo has two flaws right now:

    1) he can only lane mid. If you send him top against any of the common bruisers right now he'll get shit on.
    2) Kha'zix outclasses him 100%. The only thing Talon does that Kha'zix doesn't is do a little more AoE damage in teamfights.

    The second one is more of a problem of kha6 than Talon's tho.

    He's still a beast and if you lane him against many of the mages he counters it's almost a free win.

    He feels a little more... durable than Kha'zix, is this a misinterpretation?
    Meh.

    They're both squishy as fuck as far as I know. Kha'zix just has the bonus of a long range leap together with a stealth ability.

    Off Topic: 100% Agreed. Pisses me off that I'm going to pay extra just so I can play a couple games (They block a couple other games for some reason.) and, well, a lot of sites I can go to now but still, LoL is free and I'm going to be paying extra for a free game, just ridiculous that my ISP couldn't fix this.

    Despite the nerfs, she's a great all-around support, with the auras she can provide, and an ult that can change games.

    CertainlyT talks about why Nidalee's Pounce still remains the way it is today. While the part about being able to pounce into a shapeshift out into a spear toss makes sense, it does sound like one of those clunky mechanics left in the game just because it's easier not to change it, i.e. certain DOTA 2 mechanics.

    funny thing last night 5 of my friends and my self (6 total) played some TT.

    2nd game I got out picked. I went nidalee, going for poke we had garen + GP they had xin - syndra and kayle. Xin was destroying me. I dropped the ball on that game. I knew i should have picked up malz.

    1st game though, we went team dunk. Garen, darius and I went on jarvan. The horror of when the enemy ran into one of our bushes and they got silenced span around by darius and garen and all the while trapped in jarabs ulti. The other two members of the enemy team said "fuck that" on team speak.
    You need to try out team kidnap. You use Thresh/Blitzcrank/Singed/Urgot/Volibear. Tresh and Blitzcrank are mandatory.

    Good poke / early trading
    No skill shots (except very easy to land ult)
    Sustain / damage reduction buff and debuff
    Speed boost / slow
    Damage buff
    Cheap to buy
    Bewbs

    I main Sona so I like that she has a little of everything although you have to be aware of her power chords to use her well, and the fact that unless you are careful you will go down like a sack of poo in a teamfight before ulting unless you watch your positioning, and if you get caught in a bad position or surprised in jungle, you are dead unless you have flash or your team around. (She has no escapes or real CC aside from burning her ult, or using the movement buff / debuff which is quite weak for a long time as you level it last).

    The article points out that "banning" players doesn't work because they just create a new account and pester low level players - which is terrible for the growth of the game.

    Until they find a way to IP ban toxic players, I think this has the potential to be a better solution than actual bans - only time will tell!

    IP bans is a bad idea and riot has already stated they won't be doing it

    Yeah, it's definitely not a great idea. I tried to imply that an "equivalent" of some sort to an IP ban would be best, but I don't have the slightest clue what options are available for that sort of thing.

    Faced a bruiser Sona top today as Garen. Her poke was so damn annoying. It was like playing vs an AD/AP Nidalee up top. She had so much sustain, endless poke, and couldn't burn through her after she got her Giants Belt at all.

    Massive lane bully...

    Ranked game dodged:

    In select: tbh the "chat" sounds like a bunch of 12 year olds scrapping in the playground. I am preparing to dodge anyway.

    I get support role I ask for - no real surprise. Guy locks ADC and starts spamming very rudely that I HAVE to take Leona, because it's the only support he will lane with. Well, yeah, no. I politely decline and point out I didn't tell him what to play, and that I Leona isn't a support I play well. At which point him and 2 others start calling me a noob because sona is bad (didn't even counterpick myself or anything silly and I main sona) and why didn't I just L2P Leona. Really...

    Also another surfacing trend is first picks who lock a random support without asking and start screaming at me when I either don't have what they want for a trade, or that I point out that I don't even own those supports (taric / alistar). I wouldn't dream of locking in a role without consulting the person I wanted to swop with, then throwing a hissy fit at them when they don't want my choice or don't have my character to swop. It's something I see often enough I fear it's becoming a "thing" though. If people want to trade with a support to avoid counters, ask your support first, don't just lock a random support without asking, and presume they have what you want. That ain't how it works.
