Re: IEM Katowice

It's not about metagame, any game that starts with 4 turrets down is boring for the first 15 minutes,

last year swaplanes were as boring as this year

Re: IEM Katowice

laneswaps are super boring

if they are done well you should have no interaction between the teams before the reach the mid tower and when they take the 3rd tower they are to low in lvls and items to play a midgame. So you end up with the adc mid, top/mid farms sidelanes while we wait even longer for the game to start.

This is the worst time to view lol since I started watching in season 3

Re: IEM Katowice

Yep agreed. I haven't even cared about watching competitive in a while. Watching a random challenger stream is more interesting to me.

Re: IEM Katowice

What if they did a "First to 50 kills" game type?

Re: IEM Katowice

Or they make dragon and rift herald more worth it

Weren't dragons the main fighting point back in the day?

Re: IEM Katowice

That will just make Games snowball harder.

The problem is not that Dragon or Turrets or whatever got changed, players and teams simply got better. Much like when you were amazed by somebody insecing, nowadays in SoloQ if somebody can't insec even in as low as gold, you are just like "Don't play Lee if you can't insec". If you wach the LMS it can be exciting as there is a lot of fights, but overall when you watch those games you just think "clownfiesta", they are pretty bad and just don't know how to play.

League is lacking comebackmechanics, it's almost impossible for a team with a 10k goldlead to actually lose. In Dota the map is much bigger and you got smokes, which make it harder to really control everything.

With scaling being pretty linear, it would not change much about the excitment of games when you make Dragon give gold again. There would be two fights around Dragon and the game would be over and you just wait for one team to close it out.

Re: IEM Katowice

Would it be realistic to cut all xp gained from jungle camp if you don't own jungle item ?

That would nullify duo jungle and swaplanes would be impossible to do because toplaner couldn't ever get lvl 2 in 1v2

Re: IEM Katowice

you don't want to completely remove the laneswap as a strategic option, more penalize it a bit in a way

atm laneswaps are the default and that's the boring part, watching a boring but strategic laneswap play out in say 25% of games would be fine to watch

Re: IEM Katowice

Like bottom minion waves give more xp to duo lanes than top lane does?
