Hey guys! We got an update from Player Support:

Quote:
02/02/15 MYSTERY SKINS FOR GOOD BEHAVIOR ARE STILL IN THE PROCESS OF BEING DISTRIBUTED.

Hey all,

Sorry about the wait! Mystery Skins are still coming. We know some players are still missing their gifts, and we're currently working on a solution. It may take one or two more weeks before all skins are successfully distributed.

Please keep in mind that the requirements for receiving mystery gifts still apply. Learn more about those requirements here.

I'll make a deal with you.
I am off to Bulgaria for a week and back Monday week. When I get back I'll check your reports and if you have in or around 25% less reports next week compared to the amount you received in the past 7 days I'll jump on and we can knock out some of the draft games together if you want?

And by the way you can start off with 75 AND a ranked restriction. I know multiple people wo can confirm.
You learn something new every day. In that case Nikusha my apologies for jumping to an assumption.

seriously "kill secured" is the intellectual equivalent of "i know you are but what am i?" or "well that just means Beautiful Intelligent Talented Cheery Happy" or some nonesense. we all KNOW what KS means it means killsteal. its a generic game term.

might as well be trying to get people to believe "gg easy" means "good game it was easy to have fun in".


Kill Stealing is a thing. lets not kid ourselves. its not a big deal, its not "any kill i could have got". and its NOT because of wanting a better KDA.

gold in league of legends is finite. its also one of the most important things in the game. different champs use gold differently, and its more effective on some then on others. case in point.. a level 6 leona with 0 items has exactly the same utility as a leona with full build. shes still got free resistances, a passive that scales with levels and 4 forms of CC. the caitlyn however, with no items is allmost worthless. with full build can carry a game easily.

a general checklist to use for these situations is:

Does someone else need to die first? -> does the current target need to die ASAP? -> Is the kill secure? -> would you be better off with the gold?

the first two are mostly for teamfights. i dont expect to see ANYONE blow cooldowns in order to last-hit a champ when theres still a katarina waiting in the wings. most of the time its worth letting the support escape to stop yi getting a multikill.

and for people who think "well what does it matter a kill is a kill". its actually not. most of the time getting a kill will force you to recall for HP, and the extra 150g might make the difference between you coming back with an item or not.

the two main culprits of kill stealing are junglers and supports. ironically classes known for thier dismissal of any criticism under the guise of "your just blaming the support/jungler cz your bad". as someone who duos with a support, having them blow flash or ignite just to take the last 1% of someones HP is supremely annoying. its not only misplaced gold its wasted summoners.

as for junglers... if you are helping a behind lane, DO NOT TAKE THE KILL. unless you plan to camp there for a good 5 mins, all taking the kill goes is pick up that 300g and walk off into the jungle with it. fat lot of good it does top lane for you to be using his extra 150g to smite wraiths. meanwhile your "gank" gets him the net equivalent of about 7 creeps, 5 of which he probably lost while you were ganking.

we all know certain champs NEED to snowball as hard as possible. mostly high-damage champs who rely on thier scaling, or assassins who fall off fast. and just as well we also know that some champs DONT need the gold, in fact thats half the reason they are played. its why supports have HUGE amounts of utility in the form of obscene CC locks that hardly ever miss. its why junglers have insane base damage, mobility and sustain. because they are expected to funtion on a lower gold income. there is a reason you see professional players stop hitting a secured kill to make sure the gold goes where it needs to.

putting gold on champs that dont need it at the cost of champions who do is LITERALLY hindering your team. your effective teamfighting will be worse. it is in the strictest definition, ASSISTING THE ENEMY TEAM. which last i checked was reportable.

one or two KS's can be understandable. it happens. noones perfect and sometimes passives proc you werent expecting. repeatedly blowing cooldowns to intentionally deny people the kill by taking it yourself is literally a reportable offense and im saddened to see a riot employee condone it.

You weren't rude at all so dont worry and you have put the effort into your post and you opinion is valued and appreciated you have put time into your response.
But really from my point of view KS is just someone giving out for no real reason. A kill is a kill and not a major objective really. Yes some people could use the extra gold ADC's to get the lead or a struggling lane but that's more down to players paying conscious effort to feed their team mates. I would prefer any player secures a kill than the enemy getting away some how.

Also on the point of my 2 comments being "25-50% of EUWs monthly cap" there were 540 Red posts in the past month on the forum so really they are 0.37% if it makes any difference to you.
In regards to my posting on more random topics rather than hot topics, game issues, chat bans, nerf's and restrictions and this is not because you mentioned it but other have also mentioned it. My job is an events coordinator for Riot I don't have insight nor am I qualified to answer those questions. Ask something event related and sure I'll be all over it but if its not event related really im just here as anyone else here to take part in some general discussion and talk about league.

If there is something not events related you would still like me to address then direct a message at me and I'll do what I can to help out.

Yes it is. But it doesn't mean that it is caused by LoL. not being able to uninstall is what makes me think its a bigger issue than LoL. But I'm not a tech I don't know but would suggest getting a 2nd opinion.

I don't see why or any need for anyone to announce their gender at any time here or in game?
At the end of the day were all players and gender doesn't come into it at any stage in my personal opinion.
Personally I would be more impressed if you were a goat BECAUSE that would be impressive!

To add, I'm a firm believer in showing the why as it helps people and discussion.

That was just an example of why that specific feature may not be feasible.

There's a few issues with that, the main one is people tend to try and find evidence of their innocence over acceptance theere was something wrong. Reform cards were fantastic but we still saw people delving into detail to try and lawyer their way out of a punishment.

Their reasoning never worked because each individual is judged on their own and not because they had a rude team mate or opponent. All it takes is the wrong game to be sent with little evidence of wrongdoing and it generates a whole load more discussion and most importantly it doesn't encourage reflection or reform.

If it was individualised to focus on players at their lowest it could work but that is a whole lot of work and you'd likely have a better impact focusing on positive players than building specific features for the 1% in the long run.

Nope, it's still a bannable offence. For example if you were to log on to your account and let your little brother sit down at your PC and play a game, you'd still be account sharing. The reason why account sharing is an issue is because you're match-made with other players in the same MMR bracket- if the person using your account is a different skill level than you, it causes a bad experience for everyone involved.

League of Legends accounts are free to make, so he should just make his own account.

I know you're just joking but it's important for stuff like this to be clear, since new players might be reading this and get confused.

No because you're gaming the system.

Any time you try and raise your rank through means outside of your own skills you're having an effect on the game that is against the rules and ruins it for other people. It doesn't matter how you do it, you didn't earn it and the person you're cheating the most is yourself.

Serious answer: it's honestly beyond human capabilities to respond to every single request about chat restrictions with the level of detail you want. We've seen that people will come back time and again regardless of how deep we go on individual tickets meaning it never ends as there's always a 'but...'. The number of tickets we receive daily is absolutely huge and we're determined to respond to everyone we can.

In a lot of cases that means a standard reply which answers the heart of the request if not going fully personalized and the way around chat restrictions is to take a look at what you may have been doing that earned you it. I looked over your recent games yesterday, lately you seem pretty chill and cool to play with. I'm out of office waiting on a delivery (new cooker, exciting!) so I can't go into more depth but keep treating people with respect and hold that positive attitude I saw in the recent games I checked out.

MMR Boosing is a bannable offence because in order to do it you're account sharing, which is what breaks the TOS.

Dafuq? Is this even fair? The guy has no tools to defend himself, no real information for what he was banned, no proof was given if he did that.

Innocent until proven otherwise.
This isn't a real life court and we've explained pretty clearly that information doled out can be used against us and you and as such we try and keep it simple. I said in my last post that if we find anything we'll be in touch with the OP directly, so don't expect anything new to come back here.

We've looked into it and I've passed on to for another set of eyes to make sure everything is correct.

For those talking out why support don't go through chat logs to provide examples, the amount of time responding to players who know why they were banned and are, as the guy earlier in the thread put it, spamming support is a waste of our time and yours. Most people reform or realise they need to keep their cool after a heads up on their behaviour, asking why when you spend games bombarding your opponent with slurs isn't conductive. I would love for examples to be more easily available and when the Tribunal returns we should have more ways to help those who genuinely wonder why and also stop people hijacking threads.

I'm going to close this thread because there isn't anything to say on my end and if anything turns up we'll be in touch with the OP by mail. If I leave this thread open and I don't intend to reply it will just grow feral with rumours and people assigning motivations. Feel free to discuss topics branching off from this thread in fresh ones.

To everyone asking "Where is my Mystery Skin?" and "Why haven't I received my Mystery Skin yet?"

MYSTERY SKINS ARE STILL BEING SENT OUT.

I've been told that they'll continue being sent out until the end of January. The scripts that are being used to send them to each player are running more slowly than originally expected. So just be patient!!

Dude that's like getting a Christmas present from your friend and saying "what this sucks return it and get me something better". You can't swap mystery gifts. If you really don't want the skin on your account you can contact player support and ask them to remove it but they won't give you a new mystery skin.

Hey guys, if you received chat restrictions and didn't deserve them you can contact Player Support and ask them to look into it for you. They'll check your chat logs and if you haven't been saying anything as you've said, you shouldn't have received restrictions and they can sort that out for you.

As far as I know (and thats pretty limited) only an account that never played in the previous season ie. someone who just hit lvl 30 is in some what predictable. Otherwise without knowing peoples MMR and many other factors its up in the air because you could be Gold 3 with a Gold 5 MMR.
