please excuse the brief response (currently away on holiday and got a quick minute to look at the boards haha). You can find out more info here - https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/announcements/K3di8RL9-draft-test-wrap-up-and-plan-moving-forward

: >If you haven't already, you should use the report feature to report the racist comment you're referring to (I'll admit, I did this the moment I saw it, and I'm hoping you did too). This is heartvine, i also reported it.
I will investigate what happened there. I have deleted the comment now.
: Racism is OK
Hi JasonWazza, I'm sorry that we missed that comment. Racism is definitely **NOT** okay or condoned on the boards. I want to talk a little bit about how we moderate the boards. We can't read every discussion and comment on the boards so we rely heavily on the report button. When a post or comment is reported it surfaces on a moderation queue that we review and action. Please ensure you report posts that you find inappropriate or offensive and we will review them. If you did report it please let us know as this post did not appear in the moderation queue and we would have to investigate why that may be. In future please do continue using the report function on the boards as this helps us a lot when it comes to cleaning up inappropriate posts. https://news-a.akamaihd.net/public/images/oce/Community/Boards/Postimages/report%20button.PNG When discussing topics I too hope we can use logic and reason rather than personal attacks.

: Pre-Level 30 Runes Reforged Question
Here is some more info from our latest [ask riot](https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/en-us/2017/10/ask-riot-preseason-edition-volume-2/) "There will also be a new kind of page. Everyone will have five “preset” pages, one for each Path, that are uneditable and don’t count toward your inventory total. These pages are good general options that ensure that players always go into game with a full page of runes"
Argyle (OCE)
: Why dont you allow people to select their role before entering a Normal game (don't worry about the draft). It would get rid of people spamming their role, autolocking, Mid or feed etc . Just seems like common sense.
I think eventually we would like to do that, but that takes a lot of dev work and needs to be weighed up against everything else we do. Until that happens though we really wanted to give our players an alternate experience in Draft. Especially since 10 bans and role select came in.
Mystíc (OCE)
: You should do a 1v1 aram style game type testing in oce, I think that would do really well considering we can't support a 3v3 player base. Which is really sad because we can only get potentially 2 victorious graves chromas, since it was disabled here. I have wanted a 1v1 rank queue type for a long time.
Ranked TT has been on 2 days a week (for limited hours) for a lot of this year. Its recently been expanded to 4 days a week for the final ranked climb@ https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/announcements/wgM0WBsO-queue-schedule-updated-feb-8th There will definitely be players from OCE getting the TT Victorious Graves Chroma

: > assume Can we confirm this?
I haven't been able to find anything to confirm that but here is what I can confirm. ["We’ve also seen a few questions about the new player experience. We’ll be talking a lot about this in the future, but we can assure you, every player, from level 1 to level 30 will have the same number of Runes in every game. More soon, but we wanted to at least throw that out."](http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/features/runes-reforged-picking-your-playstyle) I don't think we've made any other announcements about Runes since the preseason post.
: This was 3 months ago, can someone elaborate on that? A level 1 account has access to all 8 runes, but as you level you'll be able to change them? Why not just get rid of the leveling system since there are no longer 30 mastery points / rune slots and 8 doesn't go into 30 evenly? So a new player gets 8 preset, unchangeable runes, is that what we're talking about here? What if I'm on an ADC or if I'm on a Tank, surely they don't use the same runes.
Hi, You might find this useful - http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/featured/preseason-update#runes If you see the create your playstyle section you will see there are 5 paths to go down. Each path has 3 key stones and also a bunch of other runes. I assume how it will work is at level 1 you will have access to a couple of different default paths (maybe even one each) then as you level you will unlock more keystones and runes which will open up more customization as you learn the game and develop your own style. Hope that clears it up a bit.
: Question - With Ranked Twisted Treeline, how come you guys aren't giving it more up time considering that It involves a end of season reward ?? Hint: I LOVE TWISTED TREE LINE <3 Thanks for it :) EDIT 1: I can understand that if you have it up for 5 hours to improve the health of the queue, but I mean I feel like since it contains an end of season reward bonus I feel like that it should be given just a couple more days of up time. ( In terms of Ranked )
There's some great context in this thread - https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/miscellaneous/AhNAAq06-can-oce-please-be-considered-a-region-that-doesnt-have-ranked-tt-enabled-for-end-of-season-rewards

Hey that seems weird. I will investigate!

: Just got on OCE server, it's before 11:20pm AEDT, and normal draft just went down at 11pm. Might need to actually implement this still?

: yea cheers, I'll try to use the tips its just that I have trouble (being a support) communicating with toxic team mates, as they usually always lose the game
You can climb to challenger without typing a word in game (although I always recommend "gw", "gj", "ggwp"). Just remember to keep the focus on your self and learn something from every game. Never play multiple games on "autopilot" where you're just hitting that play button and not actually evaluating your own play.

: Are these permanent positions or are they time-fixed positions?
Hi Regan, This is a volunteer position within a University club. The program runs for a full academic year.
: Thank you for your reply.
: Is this only open to Uni students or could some one who is not in Uni apply for these roles. If this is only for Uni students is there another similar program non-uni students could apply for. This is regarding the Events/Tournament Management.
This is currently only for University Students. We don't have a formal program for general players that want to do things for the community but you should definitely check out this post- https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/community-events/pIBkoxUm-hosting-a-league-of-legends-event-let-us-know-d

: If the trial is successful will the operating hours of normal draft be extended? I have stopped playing league for the most part due to how bad I find the blind pick experience to be but the operating hours of the draft pick trial aren't accessible for me. Id love to come back if to the game if there was a non ranked non blind mode I could access.
its definitely on the table. First we want to ensure it is healthy during the existing window and if it is we will explore options to expand the times.
: Has it started yet orrr am I just bad at time
Varials (OCE)
: Why is it only available for 1/5th of a day, not the full duration? And why is it only 3 days a week? Curious.

Majic Man (OCE)
: Could it be possible if you unbanned me for the school holidays, but once they have finished you could ban me for 14 days? Or is that not allowed?
: Hey Maraudaur, the game I played last night was amazing (despite sitting on wanting to play {{champion:7}} and my team mate banning her because he wanted mid which happens in ranked anyway) why is it only certain hours of the day and days of the week? Wouldn't it be better to have it running constantly every day for a month? It would paint a better picture of its usage rather than just 5 hours a day 4 days a week?
We are trying to ensure that the test is as successful as possible. By having it only on during the busiest times of the week we can at least know that it will be healthy(or not) during the current time and look to expand the queue if possible.

: Logged in today and tried out the normal draft. It was great to not have to rush to call roles. Queued up for a second game and during champ select, the clock must have ticked over to 11pm and the whole queue was disbanded! Anyway, that single game I experienced game me a very good impression of the draft normal mode. I really do hope more people use it over blind pick. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
{{sticker:sg-ahri-2}} Glad you enjoyed it! I believe its a better experience than blind and I hope the test is successful.
: Well I was looking forward to this... but I so far I have joined two games where I dc in the champ select for no apparent reason. So now I have a fat 13 min Queue Dodge timer :(
Oh if you are having dc issues definitely check your connection and contact player support. Remember in draft you have to lock in bans and picks! GL HF hope your next game is a good one.
Majic Man (OCE)
: I have been banned for 14-days and I believe it is unjustified.
There were some clear logs you seemed to omit in the above post. Clearly the fact that you omitted them means you understand that language like that is not okay. As some others have already said as well, spamming ggez also tends to be frowned upon by most players.

: I'm quite ecstatic that Normal Draft pick is coming, many thanks for bringing it back! It's a great alternative to blind pick in that it's structured just like ranked champ select (which encourages a good team comp, picking the correct champions and summoner spells/runes in response to what the enemy chooses, etc. which I believe is fundamental to a good game of League!) but in-fact is a Normals game. Some people don't feel very comfortable playing ranked due to the high stakes/pressure or otherwise - so again, it's nice to play league the way it's fundamentally supposed to be played without being in that high stakes/pressure game mode. Few questions: 1. Why isn't this game mode enabled from Monday - Wednesday as well? Have your statistics shown that there are less players on average playing during those days - thus increased queue times and decreased satisfaction? 2. How long would we have to wait after this 1 month trial to hear the verdict? If you guys don't decide that normal draft is viable at this point in time, will it completely rule out another trial run of normal draft in the future? Thanks again.
We also agree that it offers a lot to the normal experience =D To provide some context and answers to your questions 1. To begin with for the test we picked Thursday to Sunday and 6pm - 11pm AEST because this is when most players play. By making sure the queue is healthy during the busiest times, it gives us the highest possibility that the test will be successful and draft can stick around. 2. We should know the results quite soon after the 1 month trial, I won't be able to give you hard dates right now though. IF we see that draft isn't viable at this point in time it does NOT rule out a future trial. If key factors change that might make draft viable in the future we would do another trial.
: Do you also assist in the creation of skins, champions, patch updates, or is that all done at Riot HQ?
All of that work is done in HQ, but we are always welcome to put forward ideas and give feedback on existing work in the pipeline.
: really hope this stays and doesnt just visit OCE, a long overdue but by no means a less welcomed decision, as Mr Burns would say (insert gif here) - "excellent."

: HI Rioters, Heres a scenario: I want to create a 5v5 aram type tournament, If I had 'lots of people' - btw what is the definition of this. I say 'who wants to join in on a 5v5 aram type tournament there are RP prizes up for grabs' is that ok? Or is that no okay, because it's mentioning the RP that riot 'would' provide for the tournament. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE reply :D
Hi PurpleRain14, If you want to create a tournament you should check out this post - https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/community-events/5VfpQ1pe-guide-how-to-organise-your-first-online-or-live-tournament at a minimum you will need dates, schedule, format, rules, registration form and a place for players to sign up. Hope that helps and if you have any other questions let me know.
: I just want to know will this draft norms be exactly like ranked or will you disable bans, turn picking and seeing the enemy champs ? cause this is a good idea but whats the point if i can get the role i want but not the champion to actually play.
Hi WandererofStorms, It will be exactly like ranked but without LP/public rating. Unfortunately right now we are unable to create a new queue like the one you talk about (due to other priorities in the back log) but we hope this will still be a much better experience than blind pick for those that want it.
: Can we maybe have it turn on just a little earlier for us east of Australia? :3
We definitely want to expand the queue time frames to accommodate as many players as we can. But for the initial test we picked 6pm - 11pm AEST to give it the best shot possible of being successful =D Hopefully in future we can expand the queue so its even better for fellow players east of Australia (I am a proud Kiwi player).
Qdelta (OCE)
: I understand that whole concept of having 20 Champions in ranked but for this draft, can you pick free rotation champs? If so, then the Number of Champions required should be lowered, or not? {{champion:32}} Also, I'm not quite sure why you have to be level 10, but if thats the requirement, I guess it is. Personally I think that will cause queue issues with everyone wanting to play draft.{{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}}
I believe draft level requirement is to give time for new players to get used to playing the game a bit before being thrown into bans, roles, getting your champion picked etc. As for the 20 champion restriction its there because you need atleast 20 champions so there is 0 chance that ALL your champions are banned or picked away from you. Free to play rotation is included in this 20 so thats 14 taken care you just need to make sure you have 6 more. Hope that makes sense.

: Thank you so much... you have no idea how much this means to all of us in OCE... It's reassuring to know that Riot is aware of OCE's existence.
You know we have an office in Sydney with Rioters dedicated to serving the Oce player right =P OCE servers, Oceanic Pro League (OCS,OOL as well), Ocean Week, High School program, University program and community support among other things are what we do here in the Oceanic office. =D Always here listening, chatting and trying to do whats best for our game and community.
: Is this available to everyone, or are pre-30s excluded? Also, thank you Riot <3
It will be available to players pre 30 as well. But I believe there will be a couple of requirements. You need to be level 10 and have at least 20 champions.
