We're aware of this problem and are currently working with our service partner (Cloudflare) to get this resolved asap. Just want to ensure you that this is safe: the company is trusted and we work with them for long time now. What happened is that they re-issued their certificates last night and some users got affected and blocked. They know about our issue and are fixing this right now.

No, this is rather due to your connection quality. Your traffic to our game servers might be degraded at some point, so please contact our Player Support team -- they will be able to help you through our network diagnostic tools.

No, don't worry. These kind of attacks are performed against Riot's game servers and just cause the game to be dropped. In some cases you would be able to instantly start a new one, however sometimes it might require some additional waiting time. Your personal IP is not revealed and you don't have to do anything about it.

For months now, some players have been using DDoS style attacks to take down individual games, players and servers to avoid losing games. Whilst this affects a small percentage of total games, it has impacted a lot of players, and it’s something we’d like to minimize as much as possible.

Our team has identified many individuals behind such attacks, and we have begun taking actions to limit their access to League of Legends through suspensions and permanent bans.

In some cases, an individual player might be targeted – meaning your home internet service was DDoSed, not the League of Legends servers. This can only happen if your home IP address is somehow discoverable. The good news is that there are steps you can take to protect yourself. First, if you use Skype, make sure to download the latest version. If you think you’ve been compromised, talk to your ISP and ask for an IP address change. Read this knowledge-base article for a more in-depth explanation.

A large majority of reports we’ve investigated were likely caused by more ordinary sources of lag and disconnect, such as ISP issues and game server hiccups. But if you have evidence that a player is DDosing, please share it with us through contacting player support. Please include the following information:

• Title on the support ticket: DDoS/Drophack report
• Time stamp of the game
• Screenshots of game errors
• Screenshots that list out the players in your game
• Any time when a player is threatening to disrupt a game
• The game appeared in your match history

Although we may not be able to share with you further details of the reports you’ve made (e.g. whether someone ended up being banned or not), this data will help us in our investigations and ultimately it help you, our players.

This is a challenge for us to tackle and we’re working hard to make things better. Thank you for your patience in this and please join us in this effort by taking steps to be safe and reporting suspicious behaviors that you see!

League of Legends Competition Ruling

Player: Konstantinos Tzortziou / FORG1VEN

Region: Europe

Date of Ruling: 12/4/2014

Subject: Fine; Violations of LCS Ruleset

Facts

In recent months, Tzortziou has exhibited poor behavior, both in solo queue as well as on community streams. This behavior included, but was not limited to, in game harassment, verbal abuse, and general in game toxicity. Tzortziou was given multiple warnings by LCS officials, and despite acknowledging his behavior, he has made no subsequent steps to improve. He has received consistently more reports than any other LCS professional player, and also has the one of the highest harassment scores in the history of the LCS.

Relevant Rules

Section 10.2.7 of the LCS Ruleset states:

If LCS or Riot determines that a Team Member has violated the Summoner's Code, the LoL Terms of Service, or other rules of LoL, LCS officials may assign penalties at their sole discretion.

Section 10.2.9 of the LCS Ruleset states:

A Team Member may not engage in any activity which is deemed by the LCS to be immoral, disgraceful, or contrary to the conventional standards of proper ethical behavior.

Analysis

Tzortziou has continued to consistently engage in behavior which violates the letter and spirit of the Summoner's Code. His tendency to engage in verbal abuse, insults and offensive behavior is unacceptable for any player (even if provoked). This behavior is especially harmful in a high-profile eSports competitor who should lead the community by example.

Ruling

Tzortziou has violated the Summoner's Code in a persistent fashion, and has therefore violated rules 10.2.7 and 10.2.9, and will be subject to penalties.

Competition Penalties

Tzortziou is:

  • Fined $1000 USD

Hey Summoners,

We wanted to give you an early heads-up that in a few patches (we're currently targeting the 4.7 release) we'll be updating our minimum system specifications for Mac players from 10.6 "Snow Leopard" to 10.7 "Lion". This decision follows Apple stopping development on security updates for 10.6 - you can check out this Ars Technica article for details. Over time, this switch to 10.7+ will allow us to leverage Apple's more recent tools to create a better League experience for Mac users.

For those of you still on 10.6, there are a few potential routes you can explore:

A free upgrade to 10.9 "Mavericks" - the latest version of OS X. According to Apple's website, the following machines are compatible with 10.9:
o iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
o MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
o MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
o MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
o Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
o Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
o Xserve (Early 2009)

• If your machine isn't included in the list above, you may still be able to purchase an upgrade to 10.7 "Lion" for $20 (Machines incompatible with 10.9 "Mavericks" are also incompatible with 10.8 "Mountain Lion"). A list of machines that can upgrade to 10.7:
o iMac (Late 2006 or newer)
o MacBook (Late 2006 or newer)
o MacBook Pro (Late 2006 or newer)
o MacBook Air (Early 2008 or newer)
o Mac mini (Mid 2007 or newer)
o Mac Pro (Mid 2006 or newer)

If you're unsure of your machine's compatibility, you can use Apple's Service and Support Coverage check to find out.

If neither of these solutions work, you'll need to switch to running the Windows client through Bootcamp or another Virtual Machine program to continue playing League of Legends on 10.6. That said, we strongly recommend upgrading to a newer computer as soon as you are able to (though we know this isn't a possibility for everyone). Since Apple has dropped security updates for Snow Leopard, your system (and your LoL account) will become increasingly vulnerable to risk. We'll keep you updated if our schedule changes in the coming weeks.

Thanks!

You’ll have to dress warmly for the rest of the week, the cooldowns from Ultra Rapid Fire are sticking around a bit longer. Originally intended as an April Fool’s joke, your enthusiasm has us sold that U.R.F. should be available as long as any other featured game mode.

Due to ultra rapid obnoxiousness, we’ll be removing a few more champions from the U.R.F. queue (you can still be OP in custom games):
Hecarim
Soraka
Nidalee
Alistar
Kayle
Skarner

Enjoy U.R.F. through Sunday, April 13.

hey IceMaXa,

This is from 2014 season FAQ

Temporary shields will stop players from dropping into a lower tier immediately. Last season, you couldn’t be demoted to a lower tier unless you didn't play ranked games for a long time. This season, we’re giving players who are promoted into division V a temporary shield that stops them from dropping into a lower tier for 10 games. If their MMR falls more than a full tier below their current tier once those 10 games are over, they’ll get a warning on their profile. For example, a Gold V player with a Silver V MMR would get a warning. Continuing to lose games at 0 LP gets them demoted to division I of the next lowest tier – in our example, Silver I.

One of the primary goals of Teemo Scouts Europe is for the European Community Team to have a constructive dialogue with players about our engagement and involvement in each region. However, there are constraints on time and resources for this trip that forced us to make hard decisions. That being said, we've heard from many of you and it's apparent that we need to do a better job of including more regions in the future.

At the end of the day, resources dictated where we could visit, and we didn't want to visit regions in which we couldn't have authentic dialogues with players. Again, these aren't decisions we enjoy making, and we're building an internal infrastructure to ensure that we can give each country the attention it deserves.

Thank you for threads like this - they help drive strategy and plan for the future.

There are many champions in this mode that are borderline OP. We banned 2 automatically to save you from the trouble banning them every single game. If you think Heca is OP either ban him or pick him

A friend tried Ryze in a custom and his fingers hurt afterwards :P

I played against Ryze in a Co-op vs AI. We won fairly easily, so I didn't feel that Ryze bot was too powerful. In truth, Annie bot is still scarier.

UPDATE - 09/04/14 07:52 - With the extension of URF, we've opted to increase the champions disabled in the PvP queue to any character with above a 60% win rate. *That includes Soraka, Hecarim, Nidalle, Alistar, Kayle, and Skarner. *Don't forget, just like Sona you'll still be able to play them in Co-op vs AI and in custom games!

Ultra Rapidly Firing Summoners!

Thanks for taking the time to give all of your feedback for Ultra Rapid Fire! Your response has truly astounded us, and we're exceedingly happy that you're having as much fun with the mode as we had making it.

Ultra Rapid Fire is definitely a silly experience, and it's fair to expect a wide range of power between champions in the mode. That said, when we were looking over the data today it became really clear that Sona is head and shoulders above her peers. She's currently sporting a 78% win rate in U.R.F., and her ban rate is almost just as high. She's effectively at a point where she's the default correct choice to have on any team for any composition, and her presence is both heavily skewing game outcomes and reducing the number of effective bans players can use. 

So.

Given how much of an outlier Sona is, we've opted to temporarily disable her in the PvP queue for Ultra Rapid Fire. She'll still be available to play in URF custom games and URF Co-op vs. AI (just like Ryze and Kassadin), but hopefully this will bring more variety back into the PvP experience. We get that a good bit of the appeal of Ultra Rapid Fire is finding those really imbalanced champions, but we felt that Sona was so far out of line that she was bringing the experience down. 

This is the first time that we've done changes to mode balance while a featured game mode is live, and we're interested in what feedback you may have for us. There are a few additional champions that, while not at Sona levels, we're a bit concerned about, so your feedback will help us decide what action to take. Would you prefer that we favor pulling excessive champions from U.R.F. to help diversify the champion pool, or would you rather we leave the mode as is to maintain the crazy experience? We'd love to hear your thoughts!

We hope you guys continue to enjoy Ultra Rapid Fire for the rest of the week. Thanks for helping make this mode a success!

Hey everyone,

TLDR: Trying a new experiment to reduce Team Builder queue times. Starting today, players will have to invite at least 1 friend to their group to become a Captain.

---

We hope everyone has been enjoying Team Builder so far; we've been closely monitoring the system and are currently seeing that there are too many Captains, and not enough Solo players available. Although about 95% of players are having queue times of 5-10 minutes or less (even doing unorthodox or creative comps!), this means that 5% of players are having unacceptable queue times.

Players who are high MMR or low MMR tend to see these problems more frequently, and players who play during off-peak hours see this problem as well.

In light of this data, we're going to try an experiment in Team Builder. Starting today, players have to invite at least 1 friend to their group to become a Captain. This should greatly improve the Captain-to-Solo ratio, and reduce queue times overall in Team Builder.

While this experiment is running, we'll be working on a feature to show Solo players what teams are currently looking for to fill their teams.

See you in Team Builder,

Lyte

Barcelona might bench Messi for an easy match or use him as substitute, but for the final match he will definitely play unless wounded.

In general, professional sport players don't play to entertain but to win (unless it's an exhibition match). Still, high level competition like Champions League is generally very entertaining. There might be some boring matches every now and then but most times watching highly skilled players performing moves that normal players can't do is cool.

Big surprise that most of the times i completly forget about it or other times after an exhausting game i am lazy(dont judge me! you are not God huaaaaaaa)

So i thought to myself(what a wonderful world lol),how could one improve this.

After consulting with a team of highly trained monkeys which reside in my left cerebellum.

Here it is.

Now before you give me a Nobel Prize for Photo-editing,please follow me onwards.

The basic concept is to put the 3 honoring possibilities right under each player's name in the after game lobby.

I am 110% positive that this will incentivise players to use the Honor Initiative more often!

A graphic measurment of Honor Initiative usability before and after the UI tweak im pitching here will show increasing percentages!(Willing to bet my savings on it!).


Hope this helps,looking forward to your feedback!

Cheers.
I see what you mean! Fantastic image manipulation skills

As a UX suggestion it is definitely one I'll pass over to the UI guys. I know we're constantly looking over Honour as a system and while we may be a little quiet right now we're still looking over results and info and what improvements we could potentially make.

Keep hitting us with feedback and suggestions,I know the feedback loop may wrap around the galaxy at times as it takes a while for us to evaluate things but everything you guys say does get looked at.

Thanks a lot!

I've never played Morgana support before but I gave it a try lately and she's very fun, I'm ejoying it a lot, especially with Spellthief's which gave her a big boost of power.

Pro players showing us cool positions that we can try can be useful as an eye-opener, I agree that it can also have some annoying drawbacks.

But overall cool story anywayz.

Edit: On your smurf, avoid having "Riot" in your name ofc...
I get your point, with a Rioter account the experience is a bit different than normal players, even if I play the same in both and don't have an advantage. However I indeed have a non-Riot smurf that's not even buffed (I'm saving IP for runes) which helps me keep in mind what a typical player goes through farming and checking sales.

With that account, same as this one, sometimes I do badly, sometimes I do well. When I do badly, sometimes others berate me or get demotivated, sometimes they motivate and help me. As you can imagine, the second kind wins much more often, even in games that looked impossible. I remember a game where I went 0-2 with Leona and my Quinn said 'Vayne fed' and ragequit. We barely won 4v5.

Attitude matters a lot, whether there's a Rioter in the game or not.

P.S. Many times players tell me 'You are not allowed to have Riot in front of your name, reported for inappropriate name', the Riot tag is not always good >_<

I found Nida support is super strong early-mid game but she falls over during late game. Similarly for AP Tristana, midgame she was blowing a target with 1 ulti alone, lategame with Banshee's built in most of our team she was mostly scratching us.

I think their strategy was to snowball but the two barons we did helped us immensely.

I had one of my most epic League of Legends experiences so far and I just had to share it.

Champion selection
I go Morgana support on Teambuilder, get matched in 2 seconds, team is now full and welcomes me with celebrations. Check with my Tristana if she minds me going ignite, she doesn't, I press ready and we're in a game right away. 20 seconds from Play to loading screen (I know that's not everyone's experience, but I main support).

Early game
Opponents in lane, Tristana and Nidalee. Tried to catch Nidalee with binding from long range and she expertly avoided it, while placing traps and warding to continue dodging. Seeing that she's a good player, I decide to focus harassing on Trist, bind her, ignite her but she jumps on me and gets first blood.

Our Lee visits once and helps us get a kill, but then onwards we're on our own and give 9-10 kills to them, with Karthus ult helped them as well. Nidalee is outplaying us and the rain of spears is a torture, even when I bind and we try to kill them they get us first. Me and Trist apologize to one another for our mistakes and motivate each other to keep going and do better late game. Fed Yasuo comes bot, we kill both, then do dragon.

Mid game
Enemy Trist is going AP and is blowing us up, not allowing our Trist to farm and get a BT to sustain a bit. We try to roam and catch someone alone, however they're all slippery (Nida, Trist, Wukong hard to catch) and they find us instead. Yasuo dies alone a couple times, then they use that to their advantage to take down one inner tower after another. We turtle in our base as they circle us, with their Karthus splitpushing. Their Trist kills our Trist with one ulti.

We discuss on chat and focus on a game plan: protect fed Yasuo at all costs. He gets kills 2v3 or 1v2 on low targets, we often bait them and die for him to kill. Ryze teleport helps a lot with defend and solid stuns, while he gets quite tanky with quite a lot of MR. We get a couple more stray dragons.

They manage to kill Yasuo in a 1v3 that he barely got them, push and destroy two inhibitors while Yasuo is down. When he respawns he rushes with Homeguard boots and we manage to kill two as they disengage.

Late game
With both lanes a little pushed and live enemies going back to shop, and decide to risk it and do a baron. They never sniffed us and we get it quickly while respawned Trist tries to defend the base, we recall and save the two nexus towers at half health from 4 siege minions and a huge gathering of minions.

Push with Baron buff to get an inhibitor down, then carefully wandering in warded territory trading some kills. We all strive to feed Yasuo with kills and keep him alive, baiting them in a fight where he comes from behind, me shielding him with Solaris and Black Shield.

We have timer for Baron, ward everything, then wonder whether to start it or not. They push mid, we bait them, they appear to have turned in our red jungle. Four of us start baron, Ryze engages four but manages to run away in half health towards their red and delay them. Shyvana stops chasing Ryze and jumps in pit, our Lee times his smite perfectly. Ensuing fight brings 3 down for them, 2 for us, so we push for top and mid inhibitors down. Back, shop with our accumulated gold.

We start a fight at bot tower. Bit sloppy, long lasting, Yasuo goes down, only Lee survives for us, our minions destroy their nexus! 42 kills for us, 58 for them in 50 minutes.

After the game
We spend 10 minutes talking with each other in end-game screen, commenting on decisions and moves, suggesting better builds to Trist, congratulating teammates and opponents for the epic game. I manage to catch my breath after being tense on my chair for so long and honor everyone.

Attachment 76222
[SIZE="2"]Posting the screenshot to congratulate all 9 players for their effort and sportsmanship despite comparative performance[/SIZE]



TL;DR: Had an epic game and this is what I learned:
Terrible lane start is not necessarily a loss. When behind, help your fed lane carry the game. Devise a winning plan and discuss it in chat so that everyone is aligned. Motivate your team. Itemize against their fed threats. Focus on objective control, barons and dragons win games, not just kills.

I don't work in the design department and I don't know their plans, this is my personal opinion.

Now, he's not an auto-win if he isn't focused by the jungler and sticking as a group to prevent him from sniping key targets.

I think his current win rate is a bit low because players are still not very used to him. I'd bet that without any changes his win rate will stabilize within a few weeks.

Of course I might be wrong and we might see a small buff in 1-2 patches, but time will tell

Why so much hate? A sarcastic joke thread every now and then can be good fun, as long as the forum is not full of them. Only problem with sarcastic jokes is that someone might not get them, especially new members, and think the posts are serious.

Also, remember that the mods are human and use their judgment when taking measures so there might be some inconsistencies, but overall all actions have the goal of making the forum a better place for everyone.

Good question Zse. All I can say for now is that the Game Modes initiative is still very new, we started it 3 months ago and only published three different ones, so we're not sure when and if these modes could be allowed permanently for custom games. We're still considering what's the best way to offer these modes.
