Or rather Rito too dumb to live
So, yesterday was the introduction of patch 5.14 of League of Legends. I have suffered through a lot of stupidities on Riot's side, the worst of which certainly were the Summoner's Rift update which ruined my game experience for MONTHS til I could adapt to it (the bugs didn't help, and even at the end, I was still missing at least 1 in 3 last hits due to how last hitting was fucked up with the new minions), forcing me to ARAM and later Dominion modes instead of normal play. Also, of course, the atrocious champion "updates" (more like CRAPdates), which caused me to never tough Veigar, Zilean and Ryze again after they were changed, out of pure principle. FUCK adding more skillshots to champs who didn't have them before!
But the 5.14 HUD update is the end of the line. I don't have words for how bad and UNNEEDED that shit is. I was invested heavily in LoL, emotionally, playing more than 3000 games, but with this change (and of course in typical Riot fashion it's FORCED on you, whether you want it or not) I can permanently quit the game relatively painlessly. I for one won't take Riot's shit anymore and refuse to adapt to an ugly, confusing as hell, UNWANTED HUD after more than 3000 games. Enough is enough. More people already seem to hate this, so there is a slight possibility of them giving you the option to revert to the standard UI - I would of course return to playing in this case - but I'm not banking on it. Since the competitive MOBAs are unplayable for me because of their developers I'm out of a multiplayer game now. Oh well...
EDIT: needles to say, I'm back at playing this. Deleted and reinstalled three times so far. Playing this modern garbage version of LoL is chasing the ghost of a memory, but somehow I can't completely separate myself from it.
EDIT 2: deleted again. sure hope it stays that way.
EDIT 3 (2.11.2015): well you know the drill. playing again... though only ARAM. season 6 doesn't seem to improve the flaws in Rift, so I don't think I will ever have motivation to play ranked.
My final stats:
Normal - 593 wins, 17863 takedowns, 117794 minions
Dominion - 609 wins, 19226 takedowns, 8688 points captured
ARAM - 604 wins, 32745 takedowns, 601 towers
so all platinum badges except for normal wins :-( and minions (well 200000 was a long time away)
