: Thanks a bunch Fruitsalad, I'm sure I can speak for everyone involved in saying we appreciate the positive vibes, it was a pleasure to be able to help in the making of such a piece _(MVP goes to Highland Cow, the brain behind the Video)_. Shoutcasting is such a new and rarely explored beast that always looks super simple on the surface, right? Talk over a video game and just see what happens, go along on the journey and try and keep pace. There's always so much more to things like this that meets the eye! Just like players can be challenger in LoL, the champion doesn't change, the items don't change but how the players prepare and use it does! We're always around to be asked questions if you or anyone else have any and thanks again for the kind words.
No dramas. thanks mate for the reply :)

: But there's a new patch every fortnight, thus it would be turned on 1/2 the time...
then make it 48 hours.. most who play ranked want just a quick few drafts to get the hang of things and learn.

: Thank you for the advice, didn't realise the harm in just playing a few games on a different account. I'll stop being so naive.
All good. good to see you learning from it. Honestly so. when you level your own account, i am willing to bet your mentality towards others and "YOUR INVESTMENT" will change. All the best
: Supports
Supports can carry games. Every time i get a good one i will generally kiss their feet with praise. its the most underrated role in OCE and the people who master it are 9/10 the nicest people you will meet. i think there is quite abit of variety atm in the botlane support side. One could say its going the way of melee. it tends to cycle play styles quite alot.
: Perma Banned. Unfair? Or Reasonable?
> First Account: I was genuinely toxic > 2nd Account: this was a friends account stopped reading at this point. Your a fine example of whats wrong with OCE. in both instances you show lack of respect for the content you are using. Level a new account yourself. dont speak with anyone unless its game related. if they are neg. just mute. Goodluck and stop using accounts that dont belong to you.

: Just mucked around on vegas, end result :)
Storyline, Player smurfs using a very low bronze account and posts his incredible outplays. /sarcasm By all means, continue to create content. but not that shit. play at your real level. or follow your favourite OPL player and review, record his replays. Don't ruin the ladder.
: Assuming you have no rank, no skins, no champions, no wards, no icons, no exclusive content, no friends list, no mastery points, no hextech loot. Then you don't lose anything by making a new account. But for example: When you've spent $1000 on skins, have all the Project loading borders and the original Championship Riven and Pax TF, youre gold, have all the champions, lvl 7 on all your mains, and have almost enough gemstones for Hextech annie. Then making a new account isn't so appealing.
Who cares if they have spent money, if you are destructive to the community you can suffer the consequences of your actions. That's called accountability. Let's say it for what it is. The toxic player is also a customer. and this is a business. Why ban someone who is a paying customer.. cause we might lose them. It's sad truth. You only have to watch and talk to people in OCE content creators videos and social circles to see people are getting sick of OCE.

: ranked solo q
I've played 100% solo The issues I have are: Higher tier issues affecting my games. even tho I'm in bronze..... Higher ranked players either A. Account sharing or B. straight up boosting by using the account directly or DUO boosting. the other reason I feel players who are higher come to bronze is simply to have a "relaxing game" What does bronze offer higher players? basically a draft pick with no repercussions if they win or lose. stress-free due to our atmosphere, No toxic yelling or whatever. you aren't called out on your shit. EGO issues. also To me, it feels like the ladder gets compressed sometimes... challenger goes into diamond. so diamond goes into plat, plat goes into gold.. etc. etc... this could be due to server size but if it is, I question the amount of boosting further.. is most of the high end of the ladder just show pony accounts rarely played? Why isn't this looked into..? To those saying but but.. smurfs don't harm anything. or playing a high ranked player is fine... No, it isn't. it's like asking a 5yr old white belt in karate to vs a fully grown black-belt in his/her prime... it's not going to end well and we get beaten so badly we shut down and don't analyse what we did wrong. it's very destructive to positive development

: Hi there Mr/Mrs Salad! It's not appropriate to discuss the specifics of an investigation (current or closed) so I won't go into that, however I'd like to share some of our philosophies which might help you understand why we've made the decisions we have. One of our long term strategies is to support our teams in their journey towards becoming powerhouses. I believe a strong league needs strong teams and vice versa. It's critical for the success of esports in Oceania that our teams continue to evolve; become businesses, grow fan bases, etc. Look at your favourite NRL/AFL team - they create content, they field professional teams, they have fans, they give back to the community and they operate a business. That's where we want our esports teams to get to. There is a ways to go, but we're making progress. There will be growing pains, but this is part of growth. We believe to achieve this we need to focus on three pillars: 1. Financial support 2. Mentorship + non financial support 3. Standards of operations The financial support we are offering teams this year is around double what it was last year. All 8 teams are now in gaming houses in Sydney, players earn more than last year and they compete in our studio. Studio games allow teams to create content which is appealing to brand partners who also are injecting revenues, plus it's obviously great for fans. We've also introduced a number of investor opportunities to teams, some of which have now been realised. We are also assisting teams in growth where possible as requested. We share data they can use to pitch to sponsors, provide feedback on materials they send to sponsors and give tours of our facilities to prospective partners. The third is standard of operations. As esports evolves, it requires everyone to evolve with it. Contracts, official communications and deadlines are all important. If we want to provide teams with the framework to grow, we need to expect and enforce certain operational standards. Hopefully this gives you an idea of what we've made the decision we have in this case. You're clearly passionate about the OPL which is awesome, so please, continue to support your OPL team. Cheers Riot Stupendous aka Daniel Ringland
think you should read this its pretty concerning from an outside POI http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1spn2ta Edit: It feels like what you have written here was for the very thing posted on reddit a few hours ago. Not my original post. EDIT2: touching back on the chiefs fine topic This is exactly why i think the fine is unjustified. Most orgs give or get nothing. Here we have an example of an org doing nothing for the players and giving no money. chiefs being the best org in the OPL would still find the financial burden concerning. You need to look into both the chiefs fine, and the TM Issue.

You know what, you could be right 100% maybe I'm not meant for this game.

: Some people...
this community is garbage, bunch of self entitled gimps who believe the slightest bit of constructive criticism is in some way abusing them, most have ZERO understanding of team comps, nor wish to learn. but that might have something to do with the fact we have no punishment here, and no draft pick to learn our comps or strats. High elo players are forced to learn on smurfs which in turns creates more problems then it solves. OCE when talked about in other regions is the laughing stock of the LOL Community, we are the trash, the scum and the putrid filth. and for those wishing change are given nothing but false hope from a team of staff who have ZERO control and say if your creative or have any desire to be creative or develop the community in some way you are stomped on. NO ROOM FOR DEVELOPMENT OR ENCOURAGEMENT! OCE is fuked.
: Why should riot do anything? According to them you don't need words to play the game as stated here: "Players are never banned for not communicating through chat in-game. In fact, a large portion of our games are completed with very few words being said at all. If you feel you need to communicate to your team, then you should use our improved Smart Ping feature. Smart Ping will allow you to communicate all vital information you might need in a manner that is much quicker than typing. Smart Ping allows the following commands to be given: On My Way, Enemy Missing (MIA), Be Careful, and Assist Me." How are people with chat bans better than Chinese people? Neither can communicate with the team, so should we banish everyone who is in the reform system? Also 'potentially feeding' last time I checked speaking another language doesn't alter your skill at the game, an English speaking person can feed just as easily. You don't need language to understand map awareness or MIA pings either.
the thing is, its not that they aren't saying anything at all, its that they are either 1. insulting you in Chinese 2. communicating with another teammate(s) in Chinese then they both spam (read insult everyone in Chinese) when they die. 3. refuse to work with you in a team originated fashion. Now don't get me wrong, i have Chinese friends who live in Australia and play lol and are quite friendly, they speak English, even if its basic ie: Ward then ping the location. what makes the other chinese so entitled? why are they immune to reports? and more importantly, why are people labelled racist when they bring this up?
: Chinese people in ranked?
i just had a game which consisted of 4 Chinese people, i was polite and friendly but we were losing the game, when i requested they speak english 2 of them began insuiting me in english, then when i said that was offensive they replied, Chinese humour and laughed. this sort of behaviour is pretty unacceptable to put up with. the sad thing is tho, if you want to speak up about this sort of thing, your labelled as a racist or a bogan. its not really fair.

This sort of post amazes me no end. i bet your the sort of person who stubs their toe then blames the coffee table. the servers are pretty top notch i've rarely d/c'ed or had any issues, same goes for all my friends that i speak with. willing to bet you have a toaster PC and garbage internet OR you have good internet but its shared.
: >its like david becham playing soccer competitively agianst 5yr olds.. its just completely unfair and really not fun at all. A) it's beckham B) that's completely horse %%%%, your comparing bronzes to 5 year olds and generally at best plat's/diamond's to the world stage (fact is they are a long way off, which is why they have time for boosting) Your gonna have boosters, not much is gonna change that, play to learn and get better, not to win.
A: sorry forgot the K its 3am pls forgive B: it was to emphasize the scope of skill difference. you cheecky little pri*k i play games to have fun, learn and get better. yes i also play to win.. which is kinda the point as well true boosters will always be in games, but that doesnt mean they have to be. i think its a lack of moderation and control that there a quite alot atm. willing to bet most get paid bucket loads and refuse to work real jobs.. prob also collect centrelink. but meh don't care, over it. uninstalled 5 min ago. no longer worth my time nor money
Deadspec (OCE)
: Elo boosting to a degree exist in all competitive games there is not much you can do, One positive way to deal with it is to study them since they are far above your elo just try doing things you see them doing
i agree and understand that but its just so common in this game its brutal. sometimes you get people who are just completely destroying the team and just constantly put the other team down.. i try my best to reflect, learn and improve but in these games tbh i just switch off. its the only way i cope with it.
: if boosting exists, then that means you can solo carry.
so true and if i cant carry its my fault also if i'm not a team player i cant win either i'm at the this elo because i belong here i dont deny that. but they dont belong in my elo anymore than i belong in thiers. yes they can carry out of this elo, but they are usually quite abit higher skillwise as well.. its like david becham playing soccer competitively agianst 5yr olds.. its just completely unfair and really not fun at all.
