EUNE migration is on its way! Dromaius

Hi guys,

We wanted to give you an update on the Migration that’s planned for EUNE, as it was supposed to happen in November as per our message; we’re almost at the end of November and as you’ve probably guessed by now, we did not announce any concrete date.

There are a few reasons to that, but to make a long story short, we are now looking at performing the EUNE migration earlier next year.

As we were working towards our target date, we kept an eye on the feedback and doubts you exposed to us on this thread, and we figured we’d spend more time gathering and analyzing this up, rather than precipitating the migration. It’s important to note that, as we mentioned a few times in the thread, the migration will most likely be linked to an increase/decrease of latency regardless of how we take care of it, this is not due to our will but because of the way Internet routes work. That being said, we are evaluating different options that would perhaps mean hosting the platform somewhere (login, player profile, shop… Not games!) and the game servers (games only!) somewhere else.

Additionally, while all our tests for EUNE’s new home were going well, we realized that a different deployment solution (what we use to apply patches, etc) would probably be a better choice and add more value to the new servers. This is a pretty drastic change that would need to happen, and would have added time to our initial target anyways. Besides, EUNE is in a good place in regards to current service stability and we do not feel the same urgency to move it as we did with EUW (stability is not the only factor for this migration though, do not get hung up on that term ;-)).

As we are adding all these factors up (feedback, latency data, software changes, etc…), it became clear that it would not be an acceptable delay without proper communication – especially given that we had set up an expectation with you by stating November. Hopefully, the next time we communicate on the matter will be to bring you news of a target date.

Thanks again everyone for your patience and your active participation in this topic, both Riot Tmx and myself have been able to gather a great amount of information from your participation!

As a player who has used the Refer-a-Friend program to bring new players into League of Legends, we're notifying you that 30 days from now we will be making changes to RAF. As a result, you have 30 days to redeem any rewards you might have outstanding or fulfill the requirements to earn additional rewards.

For more about how Refer-a-Friend continues to evolve, check out our announcement post here .

Thanks,

-Refer-a-Friend Team

Dont know if means on 30th day or need to wait some more + - ?
Aha, I get now why the confusion came up. Guess that we wanted to give players at least 30 days to do what they need to do, but something came up and we couldn't release at the earliest possible date.

Sorry for the delay. You'll see an announcement in the News section when the new system is in place.

Hey MizuiroNo, Shuvo1306,

Your posts, as well as the other ones expressing concerns, are not ignored and we do keep an eye on these. As we mentioned a few times, latency changes is one of the important key factors for us and we do want to ensure that the game experience's conditions are preserved.

This means that we would not disregard any impact the migration might have, but would rather focus on understanding why. You're right, in the sense that latency and geo-location will go hand in hand, but that's a set amount (in general) of milliseconds (plus or minus depending on your country), and a number much higher than that would indicate an issue on the lines.

We're currently working on a small update message for you guys in regards to the migration. :-)

My summoner name is the name of my first D&D character, back in 1997 :P

2nd edition Ravenloft Moon Elf Fighter/Mage. The name was given to him as his skin was the color of the moonlight reflected on a moisty leaf.

So no actual trees are involved in my name.

1) The new RAF program is being prepared. I don't see any news post mentioning that date. Can you show me that email you got?

2) When it's ready

3) Preseason is the time when we try crazy things and shake up the status quo. With big changes like these, bugs happen, but at least they don't affect your regular-season ranked games. If you report them (with reproduction steps) you can help us find them and fix them faster. I can assure you that our QA team is putting a lot of extra effort this period.

4) As xfr33style said, 8% ap/ad can be massive, if you have 300 AD you get 24 AD, that's a Pickaxe (875 gold)! Also, before it was fairly easy to judge whether a trade of 1 tower for 1 dragon or 2 kills for 1 dragon was worth it. Now, it's much more interesting. Is it worth trading 1 tower for 1 dragon when the enemies have 0 stacks, and how does that change if the enemies have 3 stacks? It makes each situation different, thus makes decisions on defending dragon or letting opponents have it more important.

It's like having more things on the menu. In the past, you opened the menu and you saw 'Pizza, Pasta, Chicken'. Now you see 5 different kinds of pizza, 6 different kinds of pasta and lots and lots of chicken :P (now I'm hungry)

5) Those offers happen periodically but we haven't announced when the next one will be. Last one was on May.

Hi guys,

This is not the expected behaviour of the Launcher and we're looking into it.

In the meantime however, you can resolve your solution by following the steps mentioned in that comment:

It's essentially on how to change your current DPI size. It should fix it for ya! :-)

Hi Shioiko,

We are aware of the issues you're mentioning with the Spanish ISPs and the routes they're taking that seem to be less than optimal. This is something we've been investigating for a while and are looking into what can be done.

While these things are generally out of our influence, we do our best to work towards a perfect player experience and we hope to have improvements done to reduce that latency.

Do note that you can always contact them to discuss the issue with them as well and see what might be possible. Alternatively, some people have found successes by using certain VPN services to try and bypass the routing imposed by their providers.

A Neutral player is pretty much the majority of the thread, people who are chill

There's no negativity but it means you have to go pretty deep. It's very time intensive to run.

Batystar keeps people in the loop as to what's going on and takes mistakes with good grace. I like how you brush off that your opponent is a higher Tier than you and then joke afterwards when there's a play. Being positive isn't just about the plays it's grace and humour and keeping your team from going on tilt.

This is often done in social and mobile games, and it could be possible (something like a mini-mystery gift) but I wouldn't like a system like that for League. People shouldn't be forced to log in each day, and shouldn't feel bad for not logging in.

We often choose the language we use for emails based on the language you play the game with.

Poro, I checked your account and I can see that last time you played the game in Korean, despite being in EUNE. Guess you edited the client.

We are doing extensive tests with multiple providers and optimizing, to be sure that ping does not rise as much. You can create a smurf on EUW to check what the ping would be now, we're working so by the time we migrate it will be better.

Still, no plans for free transfers between EU servers.

Two topics:

a) We are aware of the consumable exploit and we're working on fixing it and identifying those who used it, similarly to BotRK.

b) MKJogo affects the experience between 'Play' and 'End of game', thus it goes against our stance. You can read more here.

Yep, I can see in our tools that your account has a free transfer activated. It will probably be there in case you want it in the future. Still, enjoy the game in whichever server you prefer

Hey Bari,

Just to clear out the mystery, your account was created post-split and the free transfer is there for another reason.

To tell the truth, I'm not sure what the reason is. Could be a bug of the system, eg you were provided a free transfer home back on January, which was supposed to be temporary but it somehow got stuck in your account.

If you're looking to pick a champion that will adapt well between Top/Mid in my opinion I enjoy Jayce most in those lanes out of the options you gave. I played Orianna in mid this season and feel that she might get denied a lot by bullying champions that you may typically find in top lane (maybe that's just me, I'm bad.)

Jayce can switch between a ranged champion and a melee champion, so you get the best of both worlds. He can go against both AP and AD champions, ranged or melee because he is very adaptable. I found him a lot of fun to play (especially when you land a thundering blow on an enemy!) On top of that, he is rather dashing and brings fashionable charm to the team.

I really like the explanation Desapher gave above of when to pick Jayce, that's some awesome advice. I'm going to use that when I'm next on the Rift! It's good to have a pool of champions that you feel comfortable with. Remember practice makes perfect, gl hf and let me know what you decide!

As the addition: note that Ranked is not disabled as the frequency of use is relatively low and specific actions are needed to benefit from the exploit (a regular player will simply not be able to use it). Again, all players that used this hack will be permanently suspended.

I understand your frustration regarding the delay in fixing this exploit but I can ensure that our development teams are fully aware of the severity of this problem and are working on getting it patched asap. While making sure that this particular exploit is fixed, we are also doing our best on preventing any possible ramifications it might have on the game. It's a complex code change to make sure that something similar doesn't hit us in the future, so we just need a bit more time.

Hey guys!

Yesterday we announced rewards for positive play, in the post we said we'd take some time to highlight awesome behaviour and that's where this thread comes in.

If you're a positive player and are cool with sharing some of your chat logs then drop a reply here. Some players offered from the news post as well

If you have yours shared then make sure to verify your email account as you may see something wing it's way to you in the near future.

I'm currently going over some logs on EUW so I'll be hopping over here a little later but wanted make sure you guys know that.

This forum exists for two reasons
a) For League players to communicate with one another, bond and have fun, update on news, share their thoughts and creativity.

b) For Rioters and players to communicate. Sometimes Rioters are only lurking and reading posts, sometimes we respond, sometimes we announce things. There's a lot of value in hearing your thoughts and understanding what troubles you and what excites you.

As for the champion design, as far as I know we've never created a champion as a 100% replica of a player suggestion. However, we look for nuggets or resonating ideas, for example Braum has some inspiration taken from the manly support trope presented in Angus.

I SWEAR there would be some unjustified bans like that. I mean EVERYBODY can have a bad day and go 0/15 that's really scary.
As someone who is well known around the office for my death or glory games where I'll end up with a very off KDA but a victory and also those games we all know where we flash into a wall and it all goes downhill from there, accuracy is a key part of the initiative.

There's a lot to the system beyond the numbers on the end of game screen and we'll also use player support reviews to maintain that accuracy.

For a while now, we've focused on verbal toxicity; however, we've also been looking into new initiatives to address gameplay toxicity such as intentional feeding, leaving and AFKs.

Intentional feeding has been historically difficult to judge which is why we’ve built up a system that uses advanced modelling and statistics. This gives us the ability to track and analyse every action at every minute of the game to improve our ability to detect intentional feeders. Your reports remain important and will help the system find offenders with accuracy.

If a player is warned and punished for Intentional Feeding repeatedly then they will permanently lose their accounts.

This is a pretty complex initiative and to ensure it rolls out smoothly we’re going to begin with the most extreme offenders. Over time we’ll expand the scope and keep a close eye on the results.

This is one of our first steps toward tackling gameplay toxicity and in the near future we’ll be talking about the ways we’re looking to impact AFKs and Leavers, with significant penalties for offenders in Ranked.

Hey all,

We're hearing some reports about players hitting performance-related issues on the updated Summoner's Rift, and we're actively investigating all possible causes.

While we look under the hood for potential optimizations on our end, there's also a possibility that the updated Rift just doesn't play nice with certain setups. For those with performance issues, we'd appreciate if you could:

* Update your drivers
* Adjust your environmental settings (try turning some down, as the scales got recalibrated! Your 'medium' settings on the old SR might actually be closer to a 'low' on the updated Summoner's Rift - *even with the same performance*)
* Disable HUD animations
* Disable VSync

If none of the above work, you can help us out by posting a description of the issue in this thread along with a DxDiag:

>- Click the START button on the bottom left corner (default) or press the Windows Key.
- Type dxdiag in the search box and press ENTER.
- Click "Save All Information..." on the bottom right of the DirectX Diagnostic Tool.
- Send it to Player Support.

We're seeing a lot of machines run the same or better on the new Summoner's Rift, but that's exactly what these staged rollouts are for - tracking down the unforeseen performance considerations and figuring them out.

Hi guys,

Just wanted to update you on the migration! We are still working on it, but we encountered a couple of issues along the way that delayed our initial estimates.

All our tests so far have been bearing great results, but we want to make sure the new server is in tip top shape before we move anything. We're still unclear in regards to when it'll happen, but we're trying to aim for early December to leave us enough time to finish all tests, run extra sanity checks, etc. :-)

We'll keep you posted if we see any new issues arise.

Hi everyone,

We are aware of the exploit that some players have been using to instantly eliminate champions. We are actively working on the matter to have it resolved as soon as possible. In addition, all players found guilty of using this method will receive an appropriate sanction for using it.

There has been a fair amount of threads opened for that issue, and we will not be able to reply to each of them; we hope this post will help you see that we are working on it.

Note that as always, naming and shaming on the forums is not allowed.

Edit: No need to contact Player Support anymore as we have enough information about this and will not require individual reports. Thanks everyone!

As you'll know, we're getting close to the release of the update to Summoner's Rift. I just want to take this time to briefly add some context into how your machine should perform when we push the update live.

A lot's changing with the update to SR, and one of our primary goals remains making sure players get to enjoy all those changes while experiencing equal or even better performance compared to what they currently see on SR. With that in mind, there's one technical nuance we want to get on your radar as we move towards launch. Specifically, work we've done on creating both higher low & top ends for the Rift's visuals means the exact values of the various environment quality settings are shifting, and may require players to tweak their setting after the update hits live.

To clarify, this is entirely a result of both the lowest and highest bars for visuals going up, and in no way undermines our performance goals. We designed the update to Summoner's Rift for an improved experience on both slower computers and the most powerful rigs - things should look better at the lowest settings, while players will now see extremely high-detail textures when running at "Very High." Some players who previously played on one setting may need to bump things down a notch in order to maintain the same frame rate, but given the up-shifted visuals bar they should ultimately see equal or better results with both visuals and performance.

tl;dr Every player's toaster is a different animal, so make sure to experiment. Essentially, if you experience a lower frame-rate on the updated SR or see hitching from time to time, you may need to lower your environment quality setting. Similarly, if things run more smoothly you may want to try increasing your setting.

It takes a lot of different talented people and a lot of hours of effort to create the new looks of Summoner's Rift. Imagine how ugly the previous versions of SR would look now, or how much work it would take to update SR again. We might do a thematic map in the future, but right now the team's focus now is delivering the best possible Summoner's Rift.

It's mainly a question of scale, the two servers have their own sizable playerbase. Having them separated is easier to manage and allow us to ensure that they do not have to rely on one another to function properly.

And although we are very happy with the infrastructure we set up in Amsterdam for both, there are many things to consider for the stability of a server that would definitely be impacted by merging them together. As I mentioned earlier in the thread though, there are many benefits for the servers to be separated (on the third Riot answer of this post).

If Free Rotation champions weren't in ARAM, people would be able to create accounts with only powerful champions and get them all the time. At least now accounts like that play random champions every now and then.

Also, ARAM is a great way to learn a new champion.

Diminishing returns is an important part of many formulas, otherwise you face a runaway leader issue (snowball in lol terms). It also adds variety and more options in item building instead of forcing one-trick ponies.

Tanks are in a decent spot at the moment. Remember early Season 4, the League of Warmogs? Those days a tank could single handedly kill an adc/apc and walk away with almost full health. Nowadays tanks are useful for some comps/metas but not all-powerful.
