    It's not just the frequency of the changes, but the severity of them. Entirely new concepts and items are added and taken away all the time. I agree with a lot of your champion changes, but those do add to the change frequency as well. I quit playing because I was sick of having to learn such severely different concepts every preseason, sometimes sooner. Incremental, smaller changes would be better I think, or at least don't change SO DAMN MUCH SO REGULARLY.

    Now I know that Riot stoped making cinematics, but I would absolutely love another one! Even though the "A new Dawn" cinematic is kind of old now, it's still my favorite video in the world and I would be really happy if Riot starts making cinematics again

    Some kind of better way to display patch notes would be great. I'm currently on a break from lol and I've had a few breaks before too. After a long break I know I'd have to read a whole bunch of patch notes. Give us some merged patch notes system that customizes to the player. Haven't logged in for a year? Here's all the changes made during that time in one list. For example all changes to a champion in one clump instead of having to read what you initially did to a champ, reverted it weeks later and 6 other patches notes that have some other small changes.

    League of Legends. One called almost write a novel about how bad this game is, but I'll just say this. Riot has a habbit of taking something, and then fking it up, to attempt to "Balance" the game. Anyone remember the tank patch in Season 4? Tank Top, Tank Jungle, Tank Mid, Tank Support. If you didn't also have a team of tanks, well – enjoy the loss. In their latest patch, we have Lethality. Which essentially means any ADC or AD based champion who builds that, can two shot you (Look at full Lethality Garen for example). Then, the best part is, they let you do it in ranked. So you get a group of champions who are "OP", in a ranked system which is supposed to go based off player skill. It doesn't matter if full lethality varus misses 3 of the 5 Qs he's thrown at you. He's going to kill everyone who isn't a tank in two shots anyway.

    A ranked system should be based on player skill, not, "lets spam lethality champs cause it's OP atm", which is all that I see. Create a game that's actually balanced, and it might actually have a bigger player base. Rather than just being garbage (which it is, the League fanbois won't agree, but it is).

    I very much agreed with this video up to that one point that, frankly speaking, left me like "what the… that's a totally stupid goal to aim for". What I am talking about is the statement you made at 9:43. Basically you say "if there's a thing we could make a little better, we don't do it, because either we don't change it, or we make it a lot better". I see where you are coming from, because that rule avoids League descending into hundreds of small changes for every patch.

    But from a player experience, I'm not only interested in the "mega updates", a.k.a. "look at the fancy things we did to improve the ingame shop". I'd also love if you finally fixed the known small things, like the search bar clearing itself and losing focus, not being able to reorder items in the shop window, or adding the mechanic that prevents you from buying a second gold income item for boots. You know, sometimes it's worthwhile to fix a typo instead of waiting until the whole lore is rewritten.

    And sometimes, you don't need to change 2 base stats, 3 ratios and every spell's mana cost to buff or nerf a champion. Quite often, I say "okay, I feel X is extremely under-/overpowered, maybe just change this one tiny thing and it'd be so much better". This is not even limited to champions. For example, the Snowball summoner spell in ARAM. I love the spell, but I hate what it enables some champions to do. If I had the choice, I'd implement it so that using Dash would ground you for 0.2 seconds. That is, LeBlanc can't just use the Dash, apply damage and then jump back to her distortion mark she prepared earlier, without any chance for you to punish her for going in. That tiny little chance to silence or grab her and make her regret the choice to dash into a Blitzcrank's waiting fist would mean so much to me. No need to change the whole "Snowball" mechanic or adding a 0.5 second silence, a very tiny change and I'd feel a lot happier about snowball because it fixes a small problem in an easy way.

    It's nice to shoot for the stars, but don't forget about how much the little things can accomplish, where the solution lies right in front of you.

    I really agree with changing boots in the game. You have to buy them every single time you play whether you want to or not. They should just give champions all a set speed so we can use the boots slot for a better item. Sure, some boots give you magic resist and help you resist slows and such. But they should just add those aspects to other items or make brand new ones altogether.

    Making champions more difficult to play is one of the most disruptive things you can do for returning players. Having simple champions is not the end of the world, not every shot needs to be a skillshot and not every ability needs a passive and two actives. Warwick was one of the core starting champions and a long time favourite of mine before I took a break. It is incredibly disheartening to no longer be able to play a champion you have played to tier 6 and which was a part of your core lineup.

    I would argue that not every champion needs to be material for pro gamers, or even plat gamers for that matter. Making a pounce on what was supposed to be a noob champion be a skillshot is one of the weirdest decisions Riot has ever made. What's the next step? Making basic attacks skill shots as well, or perhabs making Annie's Q a skillshot? Why not just make a permanent game mode called pro trap where nobody can basic attack and everyone just plays Varus?

    The release of Ivern was a change that Riot can follow up on, support junglers have been nerfed out of the meta for some time now because when they were strong there was no right answer for when to step in.
    Until this video I found myself quitting champions I mained only because they were changed. The rate of change is worrying, but the community has grown to meet it. It would be great to see support junglers that buff/protect teammates again without it being too strong, and I expect more champions with abilities that grant artificial gold or stats to be done right this time. Maybe even soon with the Aatrox rework.

    i love new updates, but Please dont fix champions, that dont have to change! warwick needed the update but i dont understand why you canged galio. he did not need the update, so why didnt you guys just reworked a champion, that needs it More than him.
    I now started to main Rengar, but im realy scared about, that riont will rework him in a few Weeks, so that all this time, learning this champion was waste.
    I mean its always good, to balance to game, and the champions, but Please try not to change champions, that are working well to much, so that you dont waste youre time, if you try to learn a champion like rengar.
    But dont geht me wrong, i love league, and i love the new updates you guys bring out all the time, so keep in the good work!!!
    After all this text i still habe to say, that im german, so i hope, you guys und erst and everything that was important.👍

    balance of champion designs changing over time. I heard nothing about it. and its the reason champs like lux is getting less and less playable. you make more and more champs with kits that completely hard counters other champs. there is a big diffrence on how big of a weak spot champs have. the newer ones are designed more like one man armies, where they have an answer to every situation, where as the old ones just simply has to avoid some situations overall, because that is their weakness. lux in a fight where the enemy flanks? useless, no tools to deal with it. yasuo in any situation can use passive for shiled or damage, can block entire combos and reposition, all while doing a lot of damage in meele range or further away, aswell as having long range cc and an ultimate that lets him move even bigger distances. its not that rare that someone gets displaced, so he can ult almost whenever he wants in a teamfight. this ammount of options for a champ makes his weakness so small. older champs have BIG ones, lux's strenght is her range, her weakness is gap closers, getting close to her, if you do so, she has no tools what so ever to effectively deal with you. try finding that obvious weak spots in newer champs.

    So first smth about me,
    I play League since the release of Irelia back in september 2012 i think it was.
    I originally started playing on a different Account, which never hit that lv 30 ^^. Still i knew what LoL was. After a year break or so, i started with this account, i think at the end of season 3 or smth. And still League was the same game, sure Items had changed and Champions had changed, but i could instantly say, yeah that league im playing (besides from the fact the .exe is named LoL).
    Then i took another break to mid-Season 4 were i first played ranked. And also then i could tell that this was the same game i started playing 2 years ago.
    Then 1 year ago i took another break for atleast half an year, and when i came back 5 months ago, I could instantly tell, thats my game boy!

    So even though you said u are focused on active players, for me you also did a more than great job for those who return to league after a short or long break.

    Still fcking nerf Lethality.

    And srsly remove autofill. When i go to ranked, i want to play MY main role, and thats the reason I Pick Jungle or Midlane, cause thats were im good at! If Im good at Support/Top or ADC i would take them as my roles. I would love an option like "disable autofill" for longer que times or so.
    Cause srsly evrygame i get ADC autofilled i can tell to a 100% when nobody wants to change (which srsly happend 10 times by now for sure) its a 100% lose, cause i never mained or learned about adc, i have no idea were to stand, no idea about the laning and no idea about the trading. Cause when im on bot, im the dude warding the brushes, and not the one killing those minions. And as a support ur job isnt to fully understand your adcs champ, even though u shouldve a understanding of what u are playing with, like with jinx u should just dont take trades gainst Lucian/zyra. But more than this, i dont really have an idea of whats an adc is. So srsly remove that autofill, fcking annoying and losing games for my mates.

    The heart and soul of league is being able to play any champion at any time in a way that is fun to that individual player. Because the runes and masteries have changed to compliment certain champion mechanics rather than total customization this freedom of choice of the game has gone away and therefore it has lost it's heart and it's soul. The only people still playing this game are meta slaves. There is no longer room for players to be creative with how they play the game.

    if there is a strategy that everyone uses, instead of removing it give the possibility to more unique strategies and counter-strategies to take places, otherwise, everyone is stuck to play the same one anyway, make something actually c h a n g e , just by letting those new strategies and possibilities out players will explore all kind of stuff (maybe actually having fun) and even the more braindead ones that basically play on autopilot will start to lose confidence in the main meta, in the build the just buy automatically over and over and over, and hopefully even in the way they play the game or certain picks.
    Listen to this crazy idea, what if you don't need to balance that much, right now because everyone is playing at the same way even 10 damage feels like a massive buff, but if you give freedom to the players, and create an environment where anything can happen, anything could work, players could start actually playing like they want to play, there would be tons and tons of way to play the game and ways to counter those other ways to play it, so that it doesn't comes down to numbers, but to actual strategy, and please add some difficulty and uniqueness to the champions.
    And at the end the objective is the same, destroy the enemy nexus, but for now is just a "kill everyone, push relentlessly, and break the base" every game, there is sooo much more potential, and there is no need to remove stuff players are familiar with, just give players more freedom, more ways to play the game and destroy the nexus.
