: Ah rip in match history it doesn't show club tag i guess we'll have to do it again then.
Good luck, you got this!
: Completed with 2.8 million points :) However i accidentally copied my match history link and lost the one showing post game with club tags does this still count? (i posted a screenshot from match history instead of postgame)
As long as the screenshot that you submit is from the league of legends client and shows all of you with the same club tag it's all good! Good work getting the number of points you needed. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
: Hey so, if we submit a successful 2.75 million game and then do it again with a different group of people, how will that work in terms of eligibilty of each group?
Hey CyberiumShadow, good question! When you play with a different group of people, I assume that this is because you want to help your friends out to get through the challenge as well. If this is the case if your name is submitted twice we will just be sure to remove any duplicate summoner names on our list, just to make it easy on our end make it so someone else goes through the form for the second group. I hope this helps, if you need any further clarification let me know {{sticker:poppy-wink}}
: Challenge accepted.
Good luck! {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}}

TTL Rem (OCE)
: Ooh! Thankles very much <3 Just an additional thing: does LoL performance affect chances of being a Boards volunteer? Ie. Honour Level 0/1, or being Bronze V but going for Instructor?
Hey TTL Rem, got around to updating the PBE and I have answers to your questions. [**Can Akali Recall while in her shroud? (click me)**](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmQZfnFje1c&feature=youtu.be) Sadly she cannot recall while invisible as, as soon as she starts channelling the recall effect she gets revealed, a bit of a bummer but hey it makes sense! --- [**Can Akali TP while in her shroud? (click me)**](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8y3yB8Qy0ME&feature=youtu.be) This one actually had some really interesting effects such as finding out that for the first cast of TP yes you get revealed, but after about a second you actually go invisible again! Which means this could lead to some outplay potential, but probably not as smooth as what you are after. --- **Does Rank and Honour Level affect being a volunteer** Rank never effected being a volunteer, some of the best coaches in the world are actually quite low ranks as they spend so much time analyzing the game as opposed to playing it, so don't see that as something that would hold you back. As for Honour level, this isn't something we have discussed in the past, let me get back to you on this! Hope these help! ~ Elam
TTL Rem (OCE)
: How do her W and her recall interact? Can she do a full recall while in true invisibility? Just W, expect her to be there when the W fades, but *poof!* she's gone? What about enhanced recall (ie. Herald/Baron)? What about TP? Is the TP swirl still visible if you're standing close enough (such as how you can see TP swirls even in unwarded brushes), or is it also masked? If so, it could make for some nifty TP plays where the laner doesn't even ping the TP since they're thinking she's just faffing around in stealth. Does her recall animation change while stealthed (like Eve)? (*Also, how do you do all that formatting on the Boards? Like the clickable buttons, or your profile icons + description, or having Akali in the header. I would love to be able to do that <3 *)
Greetings TTL Rem, These are all really interesting ideas, let me hop on the PBE and test this out for you tonight, I will make sure to record my findings. It would be super call if her recall changed while she was stealthed though I am unsure if this is currently a thing. --- _RE: How do we do all the cool formatting._ As boards volunteers, we get access to additional tools to create discussions such as this using coding (HTML and CSS), this is currently not a feature for everyone, however, if this is something that you are interested in you could always make your way up to becoming a boards volunteer yourself! Simply pick which type of volunteer you want to be, Instructor, Emissary or Wrenchman and start making your way towards it by helping out in those areas of the boards, we will keep our eye out. {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}}

Palmyy (OCE)
: new eve broken
Greetings Palmyy I might be able to help out here, If we have a look at Evelynn's ult passive You'll noticed it gives her **camouflage** as opposed to true **invisibility**. > DEMON SHADE: While below 250 - 590 (based on level) (+ 250% AP) health, Evelynn Heal power restores 15 - 75 (based on level) health every second. From level 6 onward,** Demon Shade also grants Ambush 2 camouflage.** When you are camouflaged you have a ring around you seen in the screenshot below, enemies will have this yellow closed eye above their head meaning that they can't see you if they are outside the circle: https://i.imgur.com/SStREN4.jpg --- Whereas if you are in range with them inside the circle they will have a purple open eye and you will have a "!" above your head showing they can see through your camouflage. https://i.imgur.com/eRnPAuR.jpg --- I hope this helps, could it be the case you were either in range of the Yasuo for him to see you or possibly in range of a tower which could have revealed you as well? ~Elam

: Well done on Evelynn.
Hey Broken Scripts, it's cool to see people's thoughts on the new Evelynn, I have been playing her a decent amount myself and really enjoying it so far! I was wondering though if I could get you to elaborate on some of your points as I'm curious about them. --- The first one is where you talked about stealth, you mentioned that you think that Twitch should receive a similar mechanic to how Evelynn gets it at level 6, how would you recommend going about this in a balanced way that suits Twitch from a game play and thematic perspective? To me my first thought would possibly be adjusting the amount of time his stealth lasts at the earlier ranks. At the moment, his ambush (Q) lasts the following: > Stealth Duration: 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 /14 This is me just throwing numbers at the wall, not saying this should be a balance change, but it possibly could look like this: > Stealth Duration: 6 / 8 / 10 / 12 / 14 This would shift it so that he would have less of a stealth impact in the early game, but still give him that potential to make those big flank plays later on. Though I feel like he would possibly have to be given power elsewhere to compensate for this loss of stealth. --- From a thematic perspective, I think of Twitch though as this ADC who can go stealth, he forces you to play around it, adapt to him being in the game and changes your mindset which keeps league fresh and gives meaningful choices of "Do I stay for this wave and risk Twitch ambushing me?" So in a sense, is taking away this early stealth something that we want from this perspective? --- The other one I wanted to ask your thoughts on was you mentioned that you didn't really like the current state of Evelynn's Q, I'm curious as to what you think might be a good path to change this if it were to be changed? What would be a good Q mechanical for her that would still give her a good jungle clear, good damage that still gives off that "Evelynn" feel and gives meaningful choice with game play. --- Let me know what you think, I'm curious your thoughts. ~Elam
theminiom (OCE)
: My entire champion roster and my opinion on them
Hey Theminiom this is a pretty cool list! It's interesting to see what people think of the champions that they play and their reasonings behind it. I have noticed that you seem to like top laners a lot that are more on the tank side. If I may I have a few recommendations of champions that you may enjoy. ---- **Irelia** Irelia is my main pick for this giving a good balance of damage, cc, and ability to soak damage in a fight. She has a lot of life steal from her kit as well as a decent amount of mobility from her Blade Surge (Q). If you haven't already I would really recommend giving her a try, you can even flex her to mid lane if you would like. --- **Gnar** I saw that you mentioned you weren't very good with kiting (the act of moving in between auto attacks), Gnar will give you good practice with this as its heavily needed for the laning phase in top lane as you will be heavily vsing melee champions that you will want to use your range advantage on. He will also give you good practice with engaging team fights with his GNAR! (R) and still give you that tanky game play that you enjoy. --- **Malphite** This is my last main one on the list and the main reason being is he is another tanky champion that you can play in the top lane with a heavy amount of engage for your team (very good against AD champions with the way his abilities work) and he is quite cheap from an IP perspective, only 1350 IP! --- Other than that I would have a look into **Leona** for a support hero giving you a heavy amount of CC and that tank game play that you love. Along with that you could also look into **Jarvan IV** for a jungler and **Vi** as well, both of which can go tanky or damage depending on the situation letting you experience different play styles on the same champions. Let me know what you think, I hope this helped out, if you have any questions let me know! See you out there on the rfit! ~Elam {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}}
: Hi me and my friends were wondering if their might of been anything on our screenshot that might of made us not eligible to receive rp because none of us have gotten any yet . Thanks if you reply{{sticker:sg-kiko}}
Hey NyanCat Aura, This was because of an issue on our end, it seems that the spreadsheet we had set up had its time zone set 2 hours earlier than it was supposed to, knocking out a bunch of Summoners that should have gotten their RP. However we are doing a second round of RP distribution once we have everything sorted out with people that should get it :) Hope this helps and I hope you enjoyed the contest! ~Elam {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}}
Byte (OCE)
: RP not received for the Star Guardian Contest
Greetings Byte, thank you for this info. The reason you didn't get your RP yet was due to an issue on our end, the spreadsheet we were using for one reason or another had the timezone set 2 hours ahead. We are doing a second wave of RP distribution shortly catching all the summoners that should have gotten RP within the correct time frame though. I do apologise for this but I hope you enjoyed the contest! If you have any further questions let me know. ~Elam
Toshji (OCE)
: I submitted alongside my 4 other teammates and they've all received their RP but I have yet to. Did I do something wrong?
Hey mate you should be receiving your RP soon, it seems that when it was submitted there was an extra I in your name, leading to your Summoner Name not being found, We have sorted this out though now :) Hope this helps! ~Elam
Rioter Comments
: Their previous name in the screenshot was SG Slae, their new name is Sale. They've already changed their name so it's a bit too late for that, sorry for the inconvenience Thanks! :D
No problem :D Updated it in the spreadsheet, thank you for letting me know about it. Hope you enjoyed the contest! {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}}
: What if a friend of mine has name changed afterwards but their original name is shown in the screenshot?
If this is the case please let us know the original summoner name and their new summoner name! We would prefer if they kept their summoner name the same though until we have given out the RP to make sure the process is as smooth as can be :) Hope this helps! ~Elam

: GOD DAMMIT we didnt all have the clan tag on ;-; ive gotten 2 S+ in premades
I believe in you, you got this :D You've still got time before the contest ends.
: what if we already submit one that is S+ and we then play with someone else that hasn't submitted one and they submit it themselves do they get the rp and the others that already submit one are excluded from that one?
Hey LuckyZedge, assuming I am understanding your questions correctly, if you have an extra friend that wants to join in on the contest meaning you have more than 5 players, you can play with them again (making sure you all have the same club tag and such) and get them to submit it the after game screen shot. Any duplicates will be removed and it will allow your extra friend to be able to win! Assuming they have met all the criteria that is. Hope this helps :) ~Elam
Sherlock (OCE)
: Uh so I accidentally hovered over a name when screenshotting the end of game screen so one of the names didn't show up, can I contact someone to send them the match history links so I can prove that it happened?
Hey mate already talked to you in client but for anyone one else who is curious simply submit both a screen shot of the end of game screen and the match history game screen. This can happen sometimes but after game is preferred. Hope this helps :D ~Elam
Talon12 (OCE)
: You get ranks for losing too, they just cant be S or above
Oh my mistake xD Thankyou for pointing that out I will keep that in mind :3
: do you have to be in the same club? me and my friends completed it and got s+ however we didnt use the same club :(
As per the FAQ above all players must have the same club tag equipped during the game that you get the ranking. Gotta show off that fancy team synergy, best of luck though, you did it once I am sure you can do it again :D Hope this helps! ~Elam
: So, in order to get the prizes for S or S+ does everyone have to get an S or S+? Does everyone in the premade have to put in an image or can you see people's ranks from the one image?
Hey, to answer your first question in the invasion game mode everyone gets the same rank at the end of the match (assuming you win) depending on how well you did on a team if you are playing on the Onslaught difficulty which this competition is based around. As for your second question an after game screen shot showing all the criteria from the rules/FAQ from one player is all you will need, once you have that screen shot simply click the button in the post and answer the questions in the google form. Hope this helps! ~Elam
: question, if someone posts a screen-shot and then does it again with others (because they also need to do it and need them for the 5th person) will the group that haven't done it (the 4 other players) still be able to enter or will it be invalid (as in if 5 people do it and then one person swaps out for and another person will the new person be able to post enter even if the other 4 have already entered) thanks
Greetings gonefishern! For people who have groups of more than 5, in the example you gave what would happen is that the highest grade for each person would be counted. To go about this simply create a second submission to the google form and put in all the summoner names from the game, we will have a look through for duplicates and account for it at the end. (please only do this for this if you have more than 5 people like in this example though.) Hope this helps :) ~Elam

Greetings TeCoolMage, thought I would jump in to answer your second question :D How we are able to make these posts with fancy headers and such in our posts is by being senior volunteers or Rioters. We do this through using coding (e.g. HTML) and are able to so that we can produce this type of content for you all to enjoy on the boards. If you want to learn more about the individual boards volunteer roles are or learn how to become on check out these posts: [Instructors - Gameplay and Strategy advisors](https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-strategy/RaWrI4Hi-introducing-the-instructors) [Emessaries - Player Behaviour advisors](https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behaviour/Edu7E6Bp-introducing-the-emissaries) [Wrenchmen - Help and Support advisors focusing on tech/IT](https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/help-support-oce/nE4lj5EB-introducing-the-wrenchmen) --- There are some pretty cool things that you can do with the boards native posting using 'markdown’ which is what the boards uses for posts. If you are interested I highly suggest having a look at guides such as this one: [Boards formatting 101](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/miscellaneous/YHPBc6k3-board-formatting-101) --- Hope this answers your question, if there are any other questions I can answer or anything I can elaborate on let me know! ~Elam
: This is a fantastic post! Passionate fans who want to contribute are a huge part of all esports teams. You could say the same about AFL or NRL teams not so long ago. It was the passionate fans who volunteered their time for the club who helped make them what they are. If you're passionate about esports reach out to your favourite team. They'd be happy to have the help!
Thank you means a lot coming from you mate and I 100% agree with the points you brought up! I'm really excited to watch and be a part of eSports as it evolves in OCE as we have so many exciting things that already happened this year, and I feel like there is more to come :D ~Elam

Thankyou! I am excited for the jungle part as well for the information it provides! **That is one thing I actually forgot to put in the main post, I won't be doing this series alone :D** Each part we are _hopefully_ having a guest that mains each role do a post for their respective roles with their unique advice, (along with input from the group of other 4 working on their parts) as for who they are, well I will leave that a surprise till they go live :P Doing it this way, not only are we sure that the information is accurate because we have people who play the roles daily talking about them, but it also brings together different members of the community and a sense of mystery as to who the next person is to continue the series. ~Elam

: Hey Elam - I remember meeting you down at Pax late last year, you are a designer right? :) 4. I'm a new south welshman so will be going for the NSW team! I'm also super hyped. 3. My go-to was Captain Falcon - I loved how fast he was and his backwards kick was fairly strong. 2. Good question, I think there's definitely a lot of opportunities to help the OCE scene. Content about the league, the play, the players, the team is always a really good one that I love watching/reading. Creating and running community tournaments is another great way - there are a number of amateur level tournaments run by the community that is a great way to help build up the scene. Another way could be to get involved with University Clubs and help them coordinate tournaments between and within them. You could line up an OPL team to run training camps for younger players in the offseason. I'm sure there's a million other ways, but I hope these are a start :) 1. I'd say the scaling and strategic planning skills - I was able to see the results of some really good scaling where we went from 1 overly expensive team and scaled up to 4 different grades, as well as results of sticking to a clearly defined strategy and ending up in a position where we delivered on our expectations and were building something really great. Insights into the emotional / fanatical nature of fans too is something that's important for me in my job today. Thanks for the questions
Thanks for the responses! Its really interesting to learn about some of the skills you picked up from previously working in sports, along with your advice for those who want to help grow the OCE scene I will keep those in mind. I am writing a post at the moment for people wanting to get into the OCE eSports scene and lend a hand. I would love to get to your thoughts and feedback on it before I post it if you wouldn't mind? Would really appreciate your input for anything I should add or etc. --- As for the Smash Brothers question, same here to be honest I love playing Captain Falcon as well! That and Lucina in the newest instalment of the series. I will have to have a match with you sometime if you're keen! :P For Pax, yes that was me the designer :D Thanks again! ~Elam

Greetings Belquin, nice to meet you! Today I have four questions for you, two a bit more serious in regards to it being about your work, two just more fun things about gaming. (I feel like this is becoming a trend for me on these AMAs... xD ) * **1:** Coming from working in traditional sports to eSports I understand that there would be quite a lot of crossover as far as the skills that you have learned, but what would you say were your key learnings from your experience in traditional sports that helps you in your job today? * **2:** You mentioned that your main focus is helping the local scene grow. Now my question is do you have any advice for people in the community that want to run their own events to help the OCE scene grow? * **3:** Who was your 'go-to' character in smash brothers? * **4:** I am going to be flying down for League of Origin (Super hyped to come watch it!) but what 'team' or 'state' are you going for? Thankyou! ~Elam

: Just made my first kassadin montage, need some feedback :)
**Greetings mate,** This is a pretty cool looking montage and I noticed you were asking for some feedback on it so I thought I might chime in on a few points I have put into different categories for you. Hope this advice helps! --- **Camera Control** I really like the idea of how you used the cinematic shots in this montage but I think when recording just the gameplay itself you might want to think about how you are moving around the camera. You might find the small change of the camera always on the move even if its slowly (Could even do it locked camera on the champion) will keep the viewer engaged and sometimes even guide the eye for where you want them to look. Don't go to crazy with it, but if you can find the right speed to capture the emotion of the play you are editing and keep it moving smoothly it can make a noticeable difference. _Quick Note:_ I did notice that at a few points while there was the cinematic shots that they would just stop in place before transitioning that might be something to look at. --- **Transitions** The next thing I want to talk about is transitions. I would suggest playing around with a few different transition types to add to your current editing "toolkit" as at the moment I could see that you are using majority jump cuts. While effective it can be nice to mix it up with stuff just as simple as a slide, fade or some real fancy cinematic ones to do with it transitioning behind bits of the map or characters. --- **Colour correction** Now I notice that you did use quite a lot of colour correction in this video which does create quite a cool effect, but the thing I would be looking at is that while it is cool, should it be used for the entire video? Thinking about it in this way you could possibly slowly build the colour correction up towards a big play or have it change with the pace of the song. Possibly play around with even de-saturating the entire video during certain parts of the moment calls for it. _On the topic of the music:_ I don't know if this is just me, but the music and overall volume of the video does seem a bit low, and at around 2:20 just kind of seems to cut out to start the outro music, which I feel might be a bit too early considering there are still plays going on afterwards. --- **Wrapping things up** Overall very nice video mate, keep at it and you will improve. I hope this advice helps. If I can point you in the direction of some things you may want to research I would suggest having a look at this video by NiceTryIan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udDYq9P2N0c It goes over some of the things I brought up here and may give you some extra transitions and things to add to your "toolkit". If you have anything you want me to elaborate on or any other advice, let me know! ~Elam

_Does victory dance at the thought of teams getting punished for 5 man ganking him bot as an ADC main._ This is a good point as it also makes top laners think more carefully about how and when they want to use their teleport early on into the game. As using it early could lose you pressure not only in the bottom side of the map, but the top side towards Rift Herald as well if they want to roam away from top. Do you think this could have an impact on summoner spell choices or the pacing of the game with this change? ~Elam

: I've been mostly happy with champ reworks, even the juggernauts, but I'm not sure about this one yet. Overall it seems like the skill required to get the same value out of these champs has increased, it's much easier to fail with them now imo. Maokai ult looks like you can just outrun it, so the timing and angle of the ult is critical. Otherwise not much has changed. Sejuani ult got mega nerfed and I'm just not seeing that power redistributed into the rest of her kit, beyond her passive everything else is less powerful or more team reliant. I've been maining Sej since 2012 and already had to live through one rework, we'll see if I can get a handle on this version as well but one thing is for certain: she'll only be able to carry through CC now rather than damage. More like a pure Tank less like a Fighter, which does mean she needs to work around her team or vice versa, less self reliant. Zac has the most potential to be more powerful in skilled hands, but his Q and Ult appear very easy to mess up. (Q the wrong champs/miss, ult the wrong champs/mistime/counterplayable by giving enemy tanks a free trip into your backline if they bet you'll make a bounce backwards and they jump in your ult)
I was having similar feelings about the skill cap increasing on the champions as well, and the exact same with the Maokai ult. However the thing I am excited about with these changes is that with the skill caps being increased it makes playing these champions especially in team fights a lot more 'mirco' intensive. IMO this possibly leads to helping team fights for tanks in a sense being less 'stale' and more reactive depending on how the game is going. Helping get to the point of no game being the same and making players adapt to their situation more. To expand on this with the old Maokai, with no offense to current Maokai players in saying this but it just seems like you would have a lot more to think about and keep track of in a team fight with your teams positioning and how you want to use your abilities the best you can to help your team win the fight. Similar with Zac as well. --- If I may ask being a Sejuani main yourself currently, with these changes in mind moving away from exactly the thoughts on how 'strong' it is, how much do you think these changes impact how 'unqiue' she is? Being that in champion select if you were wanting to pick a jungler for your team do you think this puts her in a position where she fits a more unqiue role in the team or can be substituted out with others easily based on kit? _This mainly refers to competitive/high elo play, but also could be taken in the context of all elos solo queue as well._ --- Let me know what you think, I am curious your thoughts. ~Elam
: I'm most excited by the UI changes! Anything to help me understand what is happening in a team fight, the better! Side note, this post's UI is epic. Side side note, I'm looking forward to honour 2.0 as well XD
I am excited for the clarity/UI changes as well! The death VFX change I think will make a very positive impact. I can remember a couple of time where I have been playing and tried throwing skill shots at a target I didn't notice was already dead in a team fight xD Thank you for the complements on the post UI, it was a team effort from the volunteers! I am also very keen for the honour 2.0 changes, super excited to hear their plans about it. ~Elam
