Riot doesn't want one meta game, they're trying to break it ^_^

Honestly the Meta game is the one aspect of LoL that has led to me playing less recently. Pre-lvl 30 not enough people paid attention to it / knew what it was so you ended up with crazy team comps and hilarious match ups. It was fun, it was a little chaotic, and it was very impulsive.

Now I know before I even hit champion select what is going to happen, and it is seriously dragging me down. The worst part is, if you don't play along with the meta your teammates will rage at you through the entire game (if you happen to be solo queuing).

I respect the skill of mastering the meta, and even countering it with the unexpected, but at some point I wish it was more flexible.

I, for my part, never talked about "killing LoL" or sth. it's about the dominance.
Also I added some "if" clauses.

And yeah, you're right comparing WoW and LoL regarding this "privileg to be first"-thing, but not in respective of the switch.

It's FAR more easier to buy DotA2 once just to experience it, you can even play both if you want to, but that's nothing compared to leaving a game where you already invested many bucks/hours "necessarily", build up your own community etc. while you can't play two of it's caliber simultaneously, because of the time you "need" to invest.

Mhm alright, I agree with that. I guess I took your point the wrong way then.

Yeah one of the things that is really pissing me off just now is people who want to prove that Lol is wrong somehow so their answer is to say how bad the balance is or how they dont like to deal with the meta.

Now I've been playing LoL for a year and a half and to have people who've been playing for a few months turn round and say this sorta stuff pisses me off

1) The game is in the most balanced state its EVER been, you think its been more balanced? It wasn't it was simply because most people were stuck in a rut and were only using about 20 of the champions in the roster. This leads us to 2
2) You will see a LARGE selection of champions in games. No longer is it only worth your time to play Ashe as an AD, Taric as Support etc. People actually choose between different champs now
3) New item builds. You may say this isn';t true but for a long time people only used something like 20 items in the shop... Like really
4) New inovations. We have roamers, invaders, junglers, supports, tanks, tanky dps, assassins, dps assassins, dps, burst mages, dps mages.
New champs are being done with new builds everyday. Look at Spellvamp Jungle Mundo, Morde, Shyvana going from useless to 'OP' etc.

The game is at its best state but ppl seem liable to whine now more than ever

LoL has, BY FAR, one of the best balance a MOBA-type game can have. It's far from perfect, yes. But it's far better than most MOBA game theere is right now. Of course, like it was said earlier, LoL requires a few tweaks, and I do believe some stuff need to be changed ( Like those point-to-target hard CC who last WAAAAAAAY too long for a point-to-target hard CC, IMO.) but overall, I am satisfied with LoL's balance.

P.S. I re-read my post and damn. I didn't think I was THAT rusted in english. haven't spoken/written english in a while. Sorry if my post sounds weird.

+rep me and you'll get good karma, wich means you won't be reincarnated into a rock! Isn't that awesome?

But yes this idea has been discussed more than Pam Anderson's tits in a plastic surgeons office.

I saw people QQ about how broken zilean was, how broken malzahar was, how broken solo-top garen was, etc. etc. Just because they got their *** kicked. Most people can,t even make the difference between skills and OP-ness.

Plus, IMO, Skills > OP-ness
