More ace combat, no stupid fuel pay to play mechanic...
Yeah, there will be no fuel because there will be no place to spend it in...

They said that this will literally be Ace Combat Infinity but without the online part, so you will be just getting a port of a PS3 game with only it's side mechanic. It is like if Team Fortress 2 got suddenly released on PS4 with just the robot horde mode that you could only play solo. Would you like that too?

Besides, the fuel is not as big an issues as you might think.

Riot games made this nice Draven themed stuff: http://euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/featured/skins/draven-day-2016

Too bad everyone was expecting UltraRapidFire instead, the one and only fun way to play LOL
Imo, it's terrible, like worse than terrible, abysmal even. I have so far played only 1 blind match and 2 people quit at the beginning saying that they won't play this shit. I almost quit too but I never quit so I just grudgingly finished the match.

Luckily draft/ranked doesn't have it.

Didn't try it (and not going to), but I guess people are just butthurt about the lack of URF. Any other time this would have been a fun joke. Bad move from Riot to disappoint so many players.

It would be a fun joke if you could disable it, it is breaking the game a little bit and looks super stupid. I heard some champions glitch hard with it.

Ugh, if you go to the pcmasterrace subreddit on.. reddit, there is a dead pixel on the screen.

Very well done and had me cursing for a few minutes thinking that I got a dead pixel. Bastards.

Yikes. PlayAsia continuing to be trash.
I'm having a hard time seeing what about this makes them "trash" - it's just building a brand. KT gave them a fantastic opportunity to market themselves to a disenfranchised consumer group with the DOAX3 thing; why should they pass it up? This is just continuing on from the goodwill they built there.
