        Railroaded ASSgayS that pretends to be non-linear and competitive. The new pre-season update is an example of this, now even the junglers get hand holded with "optimal pathing" because the game doesn't evolve naturally, but artificially.
        If DotA 2 wasn't a legacy game with legacy mechanics I would play that instead.

            Yes but you could see the writing on the wall even then. The moment they decided to nerf flash instead of just removing it the wheels were already turning in Tryndamere's stupid fucking head on how to drive the game into the ground.

        The moment-to-moment gameplay isn't really that exciting and gets boring if you play on your own for ages
        If you play with randoms they're likely to accuse you of being a morongaygarden gnome attempting to genocide their people if you make one minor mistake like accidentally killing one of their minions (15 gold)
        If you play with randoms one of them is likely to fuck up early and become a whiney pissbaby for the next hour
        Making one mistake early can actually ruin your impact on the game for the next hour
        The game updates every 2 weeks and if you want to be good at it you'll have to read a laundry list of patch notes and keep up with the meta as if it was a second job
        They completely overhaul major systems of the game at least once every year
        It's a 10 player game and you're only one person, so your impact on the outcome of the game is limited
        While each person has a limited impact, you're still likely to have a lot of games where one person is either obscenely bad (boosted) or obscenely good (boosting/smurfing) and ruins the outcome of the game
        It's mostly played by Chinks and Koreans so you might have a mixed opinion regarding that
        Latest character designs have either been "lol so quirky" girlbosses or "omg he's so hot" shirtless fujobait guys

        I'm this guy

        God help me I haven't.
        I've been playing regularly with friends for nearly 10 years. Like at least 3 days a week we play a few games. Usually 7 days a week there are at least a few people on to play with.
        At this point I'm convinced it's inertia. None of us is good enough to crack plat unless we play a shitload in a season. We always just play norms and not 5v5 ranked. We've occasionally tried other games but few games besides shooters have 5 or more members on a team, and half my friends are shit at shooters. Hell I have one friend who I'm pretty sure doesn't even like video games but plays TFT and league non-stop.

        I hate the game so much but I value the social interaction too much to stop unless everyone does.

        , so I'm at least actively playing the shit game I hate

        It's bad for a lot of reasons, but it's mostly bad because it's a waste of time. You'll say "but all video games are a waste of time" but this one is worse.
        Games can be settled before they begin. If your team pics a bad composition of champions and the enemy doesn't, you WILL lose. If you have a shitty player and the enemy team doesn't, you can sometimes compensate but usually not. The whole game is really down to gaining small, then progressively larger advantages until you can just win. But in order to make the game "exciting" to watch there are enough catch up mechanics that a bad mistake can completely reverse that trend, no matter how far ahead you were.
        Games are either a complete steamroll and end at 15 minutes when someone surrenders, or drag on for 35 minutes or more as each team tries to get a big enough advantage they can finally win. What's worse is that sometimes you get trapped in a game that is a sure loss or nearly a sure loss because someone on your team thinks they can sweat out a hard win, so it's an unsatisfactory 40 minutes of being ground down until you finally lose.

        You can and often will lose because of another player losing their lane. You can't even go and help because that would cripple your own lane and make things worse.
        Skill gaps exist even in ranked because smurfing and boosting are exceptionally common. Running into either is never fun.
        I have 10 years of experience and have had time to slowly understand each and every champion's kit. If you DON'T have this knowledge, at a bare minimum a basic idea of what every champion's skills do visually, then you are literally completely fucked when you run into them. There is NO visual or in game way to tell what a kit does in game. Even with 10 years of experience certain interactions, small changes or edge cases for champions I don't play often surprise me and lead to preventable kills.

          That first part sums it up quite well. I was the guy rattling off plays and shots among my friends and I remember way too many games my friend just wanted to "have fun" and basically throw a match because he always picked a jungler that needed level 6 to even initiate a gank or play a top lane character who was hopelessly outmatched by a significantly more meta character.
          More often than not, my two other friends didn't fuck up their lanes so I could babysit his stable of year 2 champs but goddamn was it almost a death sentence if he ever jungled.

      When they swapped his W and R around is when I dropped playing my frogfu entirely. Ended up becoming an Ornn main after that, but then he got repeatedly nerfed into the ground, so then I moved over to maining Illaoi. She'll never be good, so at least she's safe from nerfs.

        This is why you should only play league if you have friends to play with and not take it too seriously.

        Actually caring about trying to solo climb ranked is just torturing yourself. CAN you climb if you're good enough? Yes, but is it really worth your time? Is it really worth giving your 100% best every single game, just for nearly 40% of them to be completely pointless because you just happened to get the biggest retard on the game put on your team that feeds 12 deaths in 6 minutes?

        Your time and effort would be better spent in literally any 1v1 style comp game. Fighting games, RTS, etc. In those games only 1 thing decides if you win or lose, are you better than your opponent? If yes, then you win. No 9 random teammates to decide the game by themselves with your contribution barely mattering.

        For me, my friends aren't even pursuing rank. They just play as... Background noise? It's almost more an excuse to get together online and shoot the shit than it is about the game. Except the game demands more attention than that so conversations are mostly about the game itself, so it's not completely just a background task and gets in the way if the goal was just chilling.

        Like I said, it's almost more inertia of 10 years playing than any amount of active interest in the game.

      I stopped playing league mostly because my laptop couldn't keep the game up at 60 fps for whatever reason. It was around the time Pyke came out and then the chinese era of League began with all the anime boy heroes.
      It was a good time to leave I suppose, hardly any champ interested me for a long while and then they reworked Swain to be Lucius Malfoy.
      I have no regrets leaving, aside from having a game to play with my friends on the regular.
      Arcane was fun but I'll never be 100% on board with League after what they did to Swain.

      It's actually one of the older ones too

    I played like crazy for seasons 0-2 at season 3 i started playing less and less because of being bored but also lesser balance issues but wasnt able to just cut myself from game, but i seen and felt like RIOT balance team started shitting on tanks in favour of assasins and more and more promoting dash/flash instakill meta. At like season 6 I totally left league of legends once my 4/0/2 Full tank nautilus got killed by 0/6/0 khazix and 1/3/1 morgana under fucking my turret despite of me having full HP and landing all CC on them and noone of them died.

    Sometimes i watch patch notes and see whats new in LoL on page but oh god. It got even worse, like no more cool monster champions, but every new champ is either and edgelord, anime protagonist or coombait. Of course packed with dashes and flashes.

    The core gameplay is hot ass and riot actively pushes in that direction rather than fix it. They want to pretend that league is some great action game first and an RPG like fifth so they minimize actual strategy in favor of 'outplays' and 'skillshots' which don't actually have any skill in them since there's no unified movement or camera mechanics to make any of it actually skillful. They intentionally downplay the effects of strategy by almost entirely removing hard counters, both champions and items, and simplify all tactics to boil down to deathballing with 4-5 people with whoever has the biggest gold lead winning.
    Its been more than a decade and they've still never solved the problem of 10% gold lead by 10 minutes is a 90% chance to win. If they were an actual action game it wouldn't matter because you could aim and dodge better than your enemies or if it were an actual strategy game you could optimize your teamcomp and positioning to push for later game or splitpushing. Instead its neither and half the game feels like shit to play against because god forbid you do literally anything to stop them from having their 'fun'.
    Grievous wounds nerf was final nail in the coffin though its been unfun for far longer.

    The game is engineered to make you angry. Matches rigged at champ select, loser's queues to force everyone at 50% winrate, EOMM forcing you into win/lose streaks that are all predetermined, Riot never taking action to punish griefers, match fixers but you are damn sure you are getting banned if you call them out in-game. The worst part is that a griefer has more negative impact in a game than a smurf going 10-0 has positive impact.
