@Nimrobo: So where is EUNE server moving to and where from?

We'll be transitioning the server currently located in Frankfurt to Amsterdam.

@Sergeantkilljoy: Why do you even have 2 European server? Can't you merge them or something like that now that they are going to be at the same place?

Back in the day, when the servers' split happened, we did not have the ability to support the population amount on a sole European server. To ensure that we could withstand the load and provide the adequate regional support, EUW and EUNE were separated.

You could argue that we now have better infrastructure and would in theory be able to handle that, but having the servers under different "roofs" did add a lot of logistical benefits (not being reliant to one another, etc) and keeping them separated will help us retain this. And while they will be "rest" within the same location, they will not be connected to one another and function separately.

I don't remember seeing it announced, and the crazy thing about reworks is sometimes they fall through, or something else takes priority. I'd love to see Shaco reworked; put some character into his moveset that compliments his actual lore in the same way that Braum's and Jinx's moves are representative of their characters. The problem with a Shaco rework is that his stealth, his boxes and his clone are all iconic features of his moveset and so it would be tough to distance him from these.

Like in the case of Sion, before he was a axe-wielding zombie Schwarzenegger with a pink shield and a stunning look. Like, what? HOW DOES THIS MAKE SENSE? Now he's much more thematically cohesive - much like his story where he is an unstoppable juggernaut, he has so many moves that fully represent that, while still keeping his quintessential shield/axe. I'd like to see this sort of thing happen to Shaco if and when a rework goes ahead.

And i don't get one thing.. if some people will struggle connecting to your servers why would you move the servers ? Why are you risking to lose players :P ?
You're having connection issues while playing on EUNE servers after EUW was moved over to AMS? EUNE latency is not related to any EUW changes at all. Same ISP can indeed provide you and your friends with different quality, depending on the location, their infrastructure and traffic intensity. But your local PC or router might be a case as well.

Anyway, there is nothing to worry about at this point and we're planning on giving you wider update on connection changes in a few weeks.

Ooh, interesting thought! Would open up a lot of champions to be viable, but then it would also become a "must buy" on every champion. Not sure we want to enforce something this heavily that it would be useful for ALL ROLES. Aside from wards, of course.

What sort of hiccups in particular are you experiencing? We had a brief moment of downtime and a server restart a couple of weeks ago, but we've actually been able to really improve the quality and quantity of the uptime we have - so much so, that we're planning to move EUNE to the datacentre in the not-too-distant future.

This is always something that has affected us on the EUW forums. The fact of the matter is that EU just has fewer employees than NA, as well as having different specialisations. With cross log-in on Boards, however, this problem should be a thing of the past for English-speaking players. And in fact, if you wanted to talk to some devs right this minute, you can use your EUW login to discuss gameplay and champion/item balance or talk to the story/art team . Just make sure your region is set to EU West in the top left. Also remember timezones are a thing. With the majority of the main game devs 8 hours behind at the minimum, the crossover "quality time" period is a matter of 2 or 3 hours each day.

- Is Riot planning on rebalancing champion's hp/5 based on the pre-season changes concerning hp-regen on items (RIP Riven)
I think we're holding off on rebalancing specific champions until we see how the preseason plays out - it's going to radically change the meta overall. Obviously we have a couple of patches to go before the 11th November (providing we keep to the biweekly schedule), so any last-minute tune-ups could still come about then.

- As a follow up question to the one above: Does Riot really think that the majority of the players that play Solo Queue are going to be satisfied with the outlines set for season 5, that seem to be team focused, which is pretty ridiculous considering how skill-level difference is huge while a person is climbing (this might get a person stuck in an ELO he doesn't deserve to be in, because carrying seems to be a lot harder with what Riot is planning), not to mention how these changes enforce strong team play, which I believe can't be expected from a random queue in which people do not know each other and there is no way to properly assign a shot-caller (and even if there was, what would enforce the 4 other team-members to listen)?
Completely understand your concerns, but I feel it's best to see how the first couple of weeks of preseason play out before you make too many judgements. Strategic diversity/multiple win conditions are our aims for preseason, but it's honestly something we'll have to wait and see as to which way it goes.

As a support main, I feel you. Supports are getting the following items (as it stands currently):

- Grants bonus movement speed when near turrets

Recipe : Raptor Cloak + Kindlegem
- Active now boosts the damage of nearby towers by 100% or prevents nearby enemy towers from attacking.
- Stats adjusted to fit the recipe items (Health/Armor/Regen/CDR)

and the ones I'm most excited about :

Crystalline Bracer
Recipe : Rejuvenation Bead + Ruby Crystal
- Grants Health and Regeneration.

Righteous Glory
Recipe : Catalyst + Crystalline Bracer
- Grants Health, Mana and Regeneration
- Active: Grants +60% MS to you and nearby allies when moving towards enemies for 2 seconds. When this speed boost ends, it emits a shockwave, slowing nearby enemy champions by 80% for one second.

^ This, to me, screams "ALISTAR". It's like a charging Randuin's! I am excited!

I don't know if there's anything coming for Sightstone, but I feel with some of the new jungle vision changes (killing the Raptors (currently Wraiths) gives you the ability to see invisible units for a short time the next time you are caught by an enemy ward, for example), the vision game may change all over again.

I seen a post saying if your behavior really improves it'll go quicker than expected from a red. Also the season rewards thing said you've got time to change if you don't qualify and shortly before that post I changed my behavior so will I still get season rewards?
I can't really make a comment on chat bans I'm afraid. If you are making an active effort to improve your behaviour though I'd love to play a game with you sometime!

Not really, the latency is up to the routing paths. We feel very strong about our new data center connection quality, as it's directly plugged into Amsterdam Internet Exchange, the heart of European internet. This means we don't use any 3rd party providers to connect our servers to the world, but obviously it's also up to the second side (players' own ISP providers) on how they route towards us. Some ISPs, even those far far away, can be perfectly peered with AMS-IX and thus reach our servers really quickly. The others can struggle and our main focus after EUNE launch will be to fix it, so all players can profit from stable connection and low latency.

Both platforms, networks and game servers will be separated. The fact that they are going to be stored under a single ceiling doesn't make them less bulletproof. In fact there won't be any single shared point between these 2 environments, and this is much better compared to what we have today. And yes, stability-wise the new solutions we implement are much more powerful and reliable, so you shouldn't be afraid

We will cover a bit more about what you can expect from this migration in a future update, keep an eye out for it!

The Forums are not covered by this migration, plans are separate but I am sure there will be communication on that front once things are getting in gear.

One was a metrics reporting system used to analyze network routes to our servers. Another one was a more fundamental change to how game objects are deleted.

Unfortunately, the code path was changed in such a way that an object could be deleted during it's update cycle. The actual occurrence rates were frame and timing dependent which made the bug difficult to reproduce.

As for why you observed it only on Mac and not on Windows, there are a number of differences between your machines and configurations beyond just the operating system. In addition, you are but a sample size of 1 (as important of a sample as that is). The statement I issued above pertained to a more holistic view of all players in all regions.

As a final note, for those of you still experiencing crashes, it most likely is not due to the two crash sources the hotfix addresses. Those two crashes were overwhelmingly the most prevalent but, of course, things aren't perfect yet. We're working to always make it better, and we appreciate all the help in figuring out these issues thus far.

It's really interesting and I'm always open to suggestions and ideas.

What happens when you unplug everything (RAM, GPU, etc) but the CPU and CPU's heatsink on and plugged in to the motherboard? Does your speaker let out an error code then? If not, then it's a problem with either your CPU, Motherboard or Power Supply.

Thank you for the kind words, still a lot more that can be done and I'm always looking for ways I can give you guys more from me personally. It's always nice to read nice feedback on a Friday afternoon though.

This is a global thing, we have some ban on sight orders for Europe. It's very few in number, but there are some unfortunate people out there who we have to do it for. For the most part this is part of the minority we always talk about, the majority of players change things up before they receive a ban.

That said we know it's a concern and it's why we've started doing more to suit individuals. Chat Restrictions for abusive language, Ranked Restrictions for abuse in ranked and other initiatives we have coming up. They work for instant feedback and to prevent someone just hopping on a Smurf for a short period as they have to actively play on their main without prior behaviour to end the punishment.

It works very well too.

Hi guys,

We're aware of the issues you've been reporting and we're looking into it. We believe that one of the internet provider delivering traffic to our datacenter is experiencing issues.

This should stabilize itself, but I will keep you posted if we find errors on our side.

Korea is very small compared to NA.

This is why so many Korean games use a peer to peer connection system and why they tend to be plagued by terrible lag when they're localized for other areas.

Korea is a much smaller land mass to cover, so it'd be like if the NA servers only serviced one state in the USA.
On top of this, Korea's small country size means there is HUGE competition between cable providers, unlike the USA. Korean internet is crazy fast because of this (and the fact that wiring up a smaller sized country with fiber is a million times more cost effective)

Our NOC guys could explain much better I'm sure. Large scale connections are not easy and there are a million variables to take into consideration, some of which can not be controlled.

You were banned for excessive verbal abuse against other new players in Co-op vs AI Easy Mode. For example, one of your recent games looks like this:
