The game should notify you when you win a game where you suggested to surrender
I'm sick of FF spamming over a lost teamfight or over a mistake done. I can't believe people want to surrender so much in the game, why do you even rank if you are not going to compete to the end? Games that are not worth continuing are very, very few.
I think it would be a good idea to notify that "you voted in pro of a surrender this game" or that "you suggested a surrender vote this game" when you win a game and then have some way of counting how many games you would have lost if the surrender had come through. I think it would downplay the obnoxiousness of FF spamming, and it could possibly make the players' attitudes better when they realize how possible a comeback is.
On the flip side: notify you when you vote no and the game is 0-30 with 0 towers to their 8.
But we got the late game!
Seriously...? I can maybe understand wanting to surrender when they've snowballed to the point where you can't even walk out of your base, but at 45 minutes in, either side can win at any moment and you should never EVER want to surrender.
We're 45 minutes in and they have baron damnit please let me sleep
Lag during SSG vs G2?
Perkz lost a huge pick on Ruler because of this and they didn't chronobreak it. Pretty inexcusable. G2 got fucking jipped.
I guess Meteos was right. He was lagging on LAN.
Impact of the lag
Faulty hardware, software, strong electromagnetic interference, something causing high traffic. Pretty much the same way one can get in-game lag spikes, but there's much less probability of it happening on LAN.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to pronounce 1907 Fenerbahçe. The pronunciation is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of foreign phonetics most of the enunciation will go over a typical caster's head.
Fair play to 1907 Fenerbahce.
1907 Fenerbahce had a decent early game plan.
Unluckily for 1907 Fenerbahce the level of teamfighting they were against was on another level.
I think the core of this 1907 Fenerbahce roster can do well in future.
I don't think this is the last we'll see of 1907 Fenerbahce.
I wonder whether Move would have been better for 1907 Fenerbahce.
If only 1907 Fenerbahce got the visa sorted.
Still two games to go for 1907 Fenerbahce.
We still might see 1907 Fenerbahce threaten an upset in this group.
Well played 1907 Fenerbahce.
I guarantee we'll have an appreciation thread for 1907 Fenerbahce by the end of the day.

G2 Esports vs. Royal Never Give Up / 2017 World Championship - Group C / Post-Match DiscussionWORLDS 2017
What the fuck did EU eat the past week and can they share with NA please
and the crowd goes... silent
Apologies for early sound issues - I was rushed into this room by media handlers with no warning. This is the only english-language-media coverage of this press conf.
For context, the three-way tie between Fnatic, Immortals and the Marines blew everyone's schedules to hell. The venue, which was supposed to close at 6, was being locked and media just scattered to whatever they could find. I was going to be interviewing Broxah but scheduling being what it was, I donated my spot back to the pool so as to keep everything running smoothly.
Riot then kindly offered me the chance to attend the Chinese media press conference, which is completely separate to all the western journalists, which was starting right now, so I picked up what I had next to me and ran off in time to see Soaz walk out and Rekkles come in. This coverage picks up as they pose together for photos.
I edited out all the chinese speaking and translation because A) you can barely hear it and B) this was for western audiences.
What a trippy experience. A+, would chinese press again.
do people really not read usernames anymore or
Rekkles pulls out Vayne in the World Finals Game 5 heard it here first
With that name, most probably.
To the doubters: It finally came, Riot wasn't fucking with you
never forget their reaction to the hotfix nerfs to Singed when he was crazy broken
how most champion main subs would react: fuck, riot caught on, oh well, guess it had to happen
Singed mains reaction: LETS ALL INT TO LOWER SINGED WINRATE
You can catch a lot of flies with honey but you'll catch a lot of honeys if you fly
Piss off the Singed mains more, good idea.
The scene opens on a stage lit by LED lights. Two teams face off against one another, five members to each unit sitting across in neat rows. They seem to move to the game sounds blasting through the speakers, rolling their shoulders to a similar beat, while the commentators make memes and the fans cheer. Their names are Fnatic and Immortals.
Suddenly, marksman CODY SUN for Immortals has a spotlight shone on him from an indeterminate place. The other nine hold their spots as he stands up from his seat, makes his way over to the front stage, and begins a monologue. He is simultaneously amused and disturbed.
CODY SUN: Phew. Big crowd tonight.
CODY SUN: (he moves closer and takes a silent fan's inflatable clapper, inspecting it). I did a lot to get here. More than most, but certainly not the most. Nonetheless, I earned this spot. When I was younger--just starting out--all my friends told me this is where players go to get immortalized. (he sighs) it's funny and ironic. Now I am here, on a team called Immortals, and I realize this is actually where fame goes to die. At least... that's what they told me.
Three props are rolled out onto the stage: a single mahogany desk and two roller chairs. Just when the scene has fallen silent for ten seconds, CODY SUN moves to the chair while RIOT EMPLOYEE emerges stage left and takes the spot behind it.
CODY SUN: (no longer speaking to the audience, but to the RIOT EMPLOYEE) I don't believe you.
RIOT EMPLOYEE: Everything is on a script, friend. You don't think we were inspired to make Striker skins because we admire soccer, do you? No, we admire its organization. (he leans in) The truth of the matter is this: we had our best scriptwriter concoct a plan of punishment for Gigabye Marines. They were to make wild picks and lose every single game, in order to keep our lower elos clear of garbage comps. Except--like the Harlem Globetrotters, in a way--your team just couldn't resist throwing one to the bad guys.
CODY SUN: Who cares if Urgot shows up in games?!
RIOT EMPLOYEE: Champion reworks are intended tank their win-rate. A lot of our revenue comes from people who play normals casually, not competitive, so we take off-meta champions and make them appealing to new players, without harming the integrity of the meta we designed. If those reworks ever become overpowered, it is because we want them to be.
CODY SUN: Christ! There was a... somebody told me Evelynn has a starting 42% win-rate! That was on purpose?
RIOT EMPLOYEE: (he grins maliciously, ear-to-ear, and pets the poro on his lap) Of course it was. This is all besides the point. You and your team screwed the pooch, and our scriptwriter--scared for his life as he is--wants you to fix it by throwing this game.
CODY SUN: No, no! After all this work, why?! What for?!
RIOT EMPLOYEE: Because... (he wrings his fingers) because then people will think Immortals are awful. It will undermine Gigabyte Marine's victory and reduce the hype around their pick. If you, say, flash into the FNC on purpose, that'd do the trick. No one will blame you, either, they will claim its bad nerves and your lack of experience. So go enjoy yourself. I know personally Jensen went and helped himself to a steak dinner after 'missing' his R key that... nevermind. Get the hell out of my office.
The desk and chairs are pulled away, leaving CODY SUN to sit on the floor, head cupped in his hands. After a moment of heaving, he stands up to face the audience again.
CODY SUN: This bizarre thing is, I'm not worried about myself. I'm worried about Pobelter. He is going to lose Worlds and come home to see QTpie is rank one challenger. It'll break his heart... but let me tell you what's more bizarre. Coming up on this big city stage and expecting to be treated right.
Without any further explanation, CODY SUN returns to his seat and resumes play. As Tristana, during a teamfight botlane, he teleports into FNC's team and dies. Twitch chat goes wild and the scene begins to darken.
I assume it's a typo, but from now on i will use that name every time GAM fails to qualify or advance in a tournament.
TFW the subtlest joke gets found first
I love this shit lol
I imagine the riot employee as Giovanni sitting in his base under the casino in pokemon.
SoaZ appreciation Thred
The Tilter, The washed up one, S0-4Z but still one hell of a Player! With all the hate he gets its just very impressive how he keeps going and in the end always delivers with a little Playoff or Worlds Buff!
True Legend of the Scene!
PS: Probs to all the Players from Fnatic and GAM for getting through a such exhausting day! EDIT: I fcked up the title.........
Soaz has one of the most decorated careers in Western lol history.
7 years in the scene, tied with Doublelift for longest active career. 5 worlds appearances. 4-time quarterfinalist, 3-time semifinalist with 3 different rosters on 3 different teams. The only active western player who made finals.
Yes, he's inconsistent, he tilts, whines on twitter, and sometimes you wonder if he even enjoys playing lol anymore. But he's still playing, still making worlds appearances, which is more than you can say about almost ANY other western player in history.
I went on hating him for a good while in season 3 4. But after a while you just have to respect his resilience.
Just came home from school. I went to check the results. Fnatic is 4-4... what the fuck
Fucking reddit, just yesterday everyone was asking him to retire and shitting on him and now you got people making "appreciation threds" to karma whore atleast spell "thread" correctly holy fuck.
You missed great League of Legends.

Ibai casting last teamfight of GAM vs FNC
To put a bit of context here Ibai and Soaz had a bit of drama on Twitter about week 1 FNC performance. In the end, at that teamfight Ibai said:
"Soaz you wanted me to don't cast or analyze games, I will analyze you this, YOU ARE A GOD, YOU ARE A GOD, GODLIKE FOR SOAZ... ACE AND VICTORY FOR FNATIC... EUROPE IS LIVING A CELEBRATION... ONE OF THE MOST EPIC COMEBACKS IN THE HISTORY OF LEAGUE OF LEGENDS"
I wish I didn't stop learning Spanish after highschool, this caster is giving me so much hype
This guy would be legit the best caster in the west if he casted in english ... such a bummer that i dont understand shit
I'm glad I took Spanish at school, he really knows how to hype/talk. What a boss.
I'm a native Spanish speaker and this just feels pretty bad to me. On one hand I'm already used to english casting for LoL (Let the spanish casters focus on football) and on the other one, we must all concede that the sound quality is pretty shit anyways so having the option I'd always go with the more professional one which is the english cast.
