Cool...

Now I expect there to be a champion VU every month that was promised the beginning of this season. Knowing Riot they had 99% of their art, animation and environmental artist working on that cgi which delayed everything for several months.

Nice cinematic for this season though.

Rengar beating the shit out of Draven made my day.

You can add this to your "Today I learned".

Majority of Leagues balance/champion design team is < gold.

Let that sink in for a bit.... It's disgusting when you think about it too long. LOL

To be fair, you can have a lot of knowledge about the game but still have horrible mechanics/decisionmaking or have no passion to climb the ladder and therefore end up in a low tier

Not like I wanna defend their questionable balancing policy though, lol
Vulf
I could agree with your statement if they actually produced consistent good results. LOL
Another large issue here is they rarely communicate with each other. That's kinda bad when you have so many people on the team.

Dota 2 is balanced by one person.

And the one person actually knows game balance too. Clearly.

The sad truth.

RiotLamz is only an animator so I get that. What I don't know about is the balance/champion design team. Wow.

^ I don't see anything weird, create the game and play the game is a bit different imo, I know that's hard to believe but this game still requires some skill to be good. If you ask them rioters something about the game they can answer smartly but they can't react that fast ingame.
+ If they are working for the game they can't play it 24/7 as the best players do lol. they have like no experience in it.
Vulf
Oh pls... They spend hours at work playing the game.
They have days that are dedicated to play testing.

and what do you think they test ? ranked ? rofl
Vulf
Does it matter what they test?

Your logic of them not having time to play the game is pretty stupid.
Nofool
why is it stupid lol ? it's like you'r one of them for talking about it like that. as you can prolly admit, the char's balance/design on this game is a bit stupid anyways, then why the balance/design team should be smart ? it's like they have to be progammer because of that job, that logic is really stupid lol.

I am a game designer (not for Riot) so I know how things work for the most part. Of course it's different with every company, but Riot seems to ignore a lot of the baselines for things and they are starting to suffer because of it. Very unorganized with little communication is a more major problem than ranked play. The Rioter that played a large role in the Leblanc rework isn't even on the design team. He is a Q&A analyst LOL.

There really is no true defining correlation between ranked and the impact on design choices but it really doesn't help their case when you see 3-4 of the head designers in low silver with like 200+ games.

I'm not necessarily saying you are 100% wrong but saying they hardly have time to play the game is being ignorant.

It just really sucks to see a game you have played going on 5 years now start to fall down a terrible path.

i only wrote they don't play 24/7, as you say they have only 200 games+ (i had like 500-700 games when i did my first ranked and i was still really bad) and what they do as test is prolly way different than tryharding game like challengers, that's all.
