: BuT vAnYe HaS a WeAk LaNiNg PhAsE
You allowed yourself to get hit 3 times in a row by a Vayne as a squishy. Vayne has weak early game, except if you allow her to free hit you and you cant lock her down. As for the weak early game, let me clarify that. Compared to most ADCs, Vayne has a very short attack range and no wave clear and that translates to her "weak early game". If you keep her away from you and harass her she has pretty much lost her laning phase. And playing Caitlyn+Janna into Vayne+Soraka you do just that. Stay at max range and poke her when she tries to cs. But you literally walked right into her phase. But she can still dish out huge damage if you dont respect her. Now look at Vayne in top lane. Compared to most top-laners who are melee-short, she has a range advantage which completely removes her "eak early" simply because she can harass you. "Weak early game" is a combination of some factors: range disadvantage, early dueling disadvantage, wave clear disadvantage. But because Vayne has a range and wave clear disadvantage doesnt mean she cant out-duel you if you walk onto her face.

This is the story 99% of the times I play top, with any champion. Im non-existent for my whole team till mid game. I might be under my turret for 10 mins, no one will come. But if I overextend even for 15 secs just to push the last few cs, the enemy jungler will be there.
: Chess is a shit game. Not only does it have several flaws, it happens to have an over inflated sense of value because people are stupid and think it's good. Go is not only a much better game, it is also has way more style. But sadly Korea more or less has a strangle hold on that game so it won't ever really be popular like Chess is. But then you realize "Hey! I'm a gamer, I have a ton of board games, card games, and video games, and I can ignore shitty overated chess."
So how about you tell us some of these flaws chess has. You know, real skill and strategy are shown when both players start on equal footing. No advantages from the get go mean that only skill will grand you victory. "Hey look. Im playing wood elves vs orcs and the map is one huge forest. And I won. Oh, im so good!" I can almost hear you saying that. p.s. Its funny how you think you are more clever than the vast majority of people. Even scientists say chess is one of the best board games, if not the best.

: it was seriously considered.
I got 1 question about ranked, though none has answered it as of yet. Previous season i finished in plat 3 by playing mostly top and mid. Since im quite confident on my skills in all positions, this season i decided to climb on all 5 positions. As for that i found this statement from riot sapmagic: >When you queue as Fill, your LP splashing is stronger, which means you’ll be eligible for promotion series more quickly. For starters, this has a very specific problem. Queuing fill will most likely get you into support, so you will still end up playing more games in the support role than the others. And here's the question. What if i want to queue up at different role its time, say, i feel like queuing for top/mid, after two games i queue up as ADC/support, after 3 games as support/mid, etc. If i keep queuing by "cycling" through all positions, do i still get a stronger LP splash? Maybe you are able to answer that, please.

: Yo! You there dude?
These dont say much. Any messages? Anything weird? Does your CPU/RAM/DISC overload? something that tells more of the problem.

You should have put "none" in the poll, too.
: Need favor from a fellow league player
I might be able to help if you tell me what exactly is the problem you have.

: Let's talk about Void Staff
You are confusing two things. Magic resistance is the numerical value, like 100. Magic damage mitigation is the percent value, as 30%. Magic penetration reduces your magic resistance by a certain amount. Void staff "gives 40% magic pen" means that it gives you the ability to ignore 40% of the enemy's magic resistance. If it said "increases your magic pen by 40%" , then it would be what you said about the 1.4 multiplier factor.

This is why casuals and serious gamers wont ever see eye to eye, its like 2 different worlds Yes you can play whatever you want, but no it wont be appreciated unless its something that could be a good new meta, taking a quin bruiser is obviously a bag the team has to carry uphill. even in a normal, a normal game isnt an excuse to just do whatever the hell you want techniqually you could take all the farm as support in normals would your team like it? no they would not. you could run around as soraka and heal people only instead of getting xp and helping your adc, are you allowed to do that? yes. do people like it or think thats cool? no. catch my drift? a waste of time, a loss for no reason, just because you wanted fun in a lot of cases. kata ad bot.. the thought kills me. you have to understand you have 4 teammates dude and 9/10 wont agree on you going kata ad bot, and for good reason. thats just the way it is. yes you have the right, but no it aint cool. thats how life outside of league works aswell. anyway ill stop it here because like i said we are worlds apart from agreeing good day to you. p.s this isnt personal ofcourse :)
Yeah, we will never agree. But, btw, when i played Quinn bruiser top, before her "rework", i would win most of the times my lane and had more than 60% win rate with that. You said its "obviously a bag the team has to carry uphill" but in the end i was doing the best part of lifting more often than not. So its not your call whether something works or nor. Remember that.

No one said anything about not doing your bes or not trying to win. But as i said, we dont come into your ranked to play casually or for fun, so why you come into our casual/normal games to play like you play in ranked. There is a reason those 2 modes are separate. Because some people, like you, have that set up in their minds that, since there is a competitive/serious side on the game, then every other side should also be competitive/serious.

If people dont, then the game it self loses its primary purpose, to have fun, as every game when you dont play competitively. Why players have to take everything so seriously, even in ARAM? because this game has a competetive nature and you cant carry alone. these are factors that highly matter. if someone could win by himself he would care less about what you do but if we lose because you go quinn bruiser then that is trashy also people use normals to train for ranked, and if you have some quinn bruiser on the team you cant train properly and so you are wasting time. keep the weird shit like bruiser quin for custom or friend games mate sure pick an offchamp in normal or a slightly weird build with weird runes but overall keep it normal everything you do like i said affects the serious gamers, so if you troll or take something shitty so they cant practise or win less then that sucks and i understand that. i get your point but its not as simple as you think it is
Soooo... I have to play what i must play, by some unwritten "rules", though i am allowed to make some slight deviations, because there are some people who want to be serious where some other people go to have fun. And im talking about normals here, not ranked. So, in the first place, is there any reason to go play normals instead of ranked, since im going to be dead serious in both? Its true that the game has a competitive nature. In ranked. If you want to be serious you can go there. Why should normals be serious, too? "Football has a competitive/pro/semi-pro nature.

: Thats normal This is an E-sports title, its not lets say monopoly or minecraft. On top of that everything you do every time you feed or whatever AFFECTS YOUR TEAMMATES and their performance It is NOT fun to lose if you play and lose because you have a sup that doesnt care and doesnt ward. It is not fun to lose because someone cant even ping or type SS, or just screws about on the map. Especially in ranked the goal is to win Its a whole different Queue for a reason, its for the more competetive people that want to test their limits and get as high as possible If you go in half arsed then people will be logically mad. Never forget that even in a normal game you have 4 teammates, you dont know if they came in to win, or just to have fun, however you DO know the 1 fact that there was a goal given and thats to win. Overall have fun with friends but with randoms and especially ranked be a lot more serious.
I agree on that, but not completely. Yeah, if you play ranked, you aim high, you aim to win, so its normal to be serious. But for normals, ARAM or other modes its a different story. Of course everyone wants to win. I also want to win. But i also want to have fun. After all, these modes are meant to have some fun, not to take seriously. If i want to play bruiser Quinn top, why i cant, even if im playing to win. If i want to play ad Kata bot, while also trying to win, why cant i? Why do i have to take even normals so seriously?

After all, outside of ranked, its just a game. Why cant i have fun with it? If people dont, then the game it self loses its primary purpose, to have fun, as every game when you dont play competitively. Why players have to take everything so seriously, even in ARAM?
: The problem with this, and you know this, is that no team that isn't a 5 man premade that all know each other will agree to that. Ergo, the roaming Teemo is always "wrong" by majority vote, in your scenario. So unless you mean to tell him "don't do this unless you're in a 5 man premade" you really don't have any authority to tell him how to play the game, and neither do his teammates. I'm keen to think you'd be just like that Shaco player who literally ragequit 7 minutes in because you believe the situation to be unwinnable before the match even started. Well, we should all know by now, if you think you can't win, you won't, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy for that type of player. In reality, he's free to be a roaming support if he wants to, any support is. He doesn't have to have his team's "permission." It would be a courtesy to explain his intentions, but if his team doesn't like it, well the adult thing to do would be to play the game as best they can anyway, and not just quit as soon as physically possible, which is what they did in this case, babies indeed. Hell, the Teemo player tried to 1 v 5 the enemy team until the end and never died, which is more than I can say for the rest of the team. That game was a lost cause by that point, but if the other 4 members had that mentality the whole time, instead of a "fuck this, this guy's trolling, I'm out" mentality the OP is complaining about, the game could've gone very differently. Playing in an "unconventional" way isn't trolling, and even though the league community are about 50/50 divided on this point, Riot won't ban or punish players for this as long as there's no evidence the player is trying to lose the game. There are no rules in this game about who can do what in which lane with who's permission, and there never will be. Or do you not remember that Diamond 1 Nunu player with a majority win rate who got banned because he got reported for queuing as support and taking smite and counter jungling instead of going bot? Riot's response to that was so goddamn awful and hypocritical that the community turned on them and the ban was lifted. Despite the fact that that player got reported in 50% of his games for doing it, even the games he won (which was a majority of them.) His strategy worked, even though his team was not on board with it almost every time. Should he not employ a winning strategy simply because 4 other people don't like it? Now having said that here's what I noticed from that replay that might make Cloth Armor think differently. 1) The team never got a kill in any of the lanes Teemo roamed to. Not mid, not top. In reality, he was simply leeching XP from those lanes, and not "helping" as much as he would like to think. 2) Kai'sa got killed twice by the 2 person bot lane, possibly because she had no support. Now, an experienced ADC main SHOULD understand how to play passively in a situation like that, but having been in that spot before, I'm not going to say it's fun, or that I like it, Kai'sa probably didn't appreciate it either. 3) The enemy Gragas jungler was either smart or lucky, he seemed to be in the right place at the right time and led his team to kills very early on. This set Teemo's team back very early on. There's no guarantee that if Teemo hadn't roamed this would've unfolded any differently. 4) In the example of the "off-meta" player I referenced above, that guy was a D1 player who knew with math that his strategy worked more than half the time, even when his team hated him for doing it. A silver roaming Teemo support, maybe doesn't know the game well enough to guarantee it's a good idea all the time. 5) This game got out of hand so quick it's ridiculous. The enemy team had a 2k gold lead 5 minutes in, a 3k gold lead 6 minutes in, and a 6k gold lead before they took a single turret. Now part of that is because the players who AFK'd stopped contributing CS gold but still. This to me speaks more to a state of the game problem than a team strategy problem. It really is true, if you give up first blood in low-elo, it's pretty much over, which is why all four of those people just ragequit. The plus side, the whole thing took less than 12 minutes right? That last comment was meant to be sarcastic. I mean with games snowballing and ending so fast, and with players giving up literally 7 minutes into a game, and with people on the forums telling people who complain about that that they're "playing wrong" how is anyone supposed to have fun?
I agree on that "unconventional"=/=trolling. There are unconventional things that work and some that dont. Though there is a big "but" in here. This is not an unconventional pick or build. This is an unconventional strategy and that puts some more parameters on it. How much this strategy benefits/hurts your team and how much it hurts/benefits the enemy team. A strategy that, more often than not, brings more harm than good and you are using it without your team's consent, in my book can be considered trolling. As for that Nunu guy you mentioned, it brought more often benefits to his team than the enemy team. And while i can say that even if you know how to play and are a high diamond player its a struggle to survive 1vs2, especially when, in this scenario, you are up against a Leona and Karthus. Im totally negative on AFKing, no matter what (unless its a real life serious situation ofcourse). So i do believe these guys were at fault. One last thing. Its true that i cant force anyone to play what or how i want them to. But that goes both ways, you know. Yeah, i cant force that guy to play Teemo roaming support. But also this guy isnt allowed to force me in such a shitty situation. If i force you to play something you dont want to, i ruin all your fun. If you force me to go 1vs2, leech my xp and cs as a solo laner you also ruin my fun.
: You didn't say what my team did was wrong. you said "I wont say that it was right from your team to go afk" Please don't try to change what you actually did say. When you say very clear disadvantage... when the mid lane is at half HP on the first wave from my lvl1 stealth gank is that a clear disadvantage for my team? When 3:20 into the game the enemy yorick has 1 CS. Is that a clear disadvantage for my team? At 4:10 then i use TP to go to the bottom lane to get a kill... Is that a disadvantage? Am i to bear the blame for Kai'sa not simply walking away from Karthus prior to my TP? At 5:30 after my mid and jungle suicide under tower for a kill and i cover the lane to net my team the XP is that a disadvantage? At 6:00 I go top to cover the tower. Is keeping towers from dropping plates bad? At 7:10 I go back to cover top after my shaco top runs under tower to get himself to >100 hp then waits for Yorick to return and kill him before quitting. I then stay top because its a 4v5. Is covering a tower for a laner that quit a disadvantage for my team? Should i give Yorick free armor plate gold? I would say your determination of very clear, isn't very clear. I'm sorry you are close minded to alternative play styles. Please don't try to hijack a posting about the fact 4 people quit a ranked game in 7:30 with a bunch of fake rule talk about playing off meta.
3d time i say it. You left Kai'sa fend for herself against a Karthus + Leona. Thats straight up giving a disadvantage at your bot lane which, in return, is a disadvantage to the rest of the team. And yes, Yorick had that 1 cs in 3:20 but he was ahead in xp and that makes up for the fact he was down in cs. Until 4:10 Kai'sa was struggling to even farm, she was still under turret when Leona engaged on her and you started channeling your tp as she was dying. In 5:30 you are not covering the lane, you are ruining it. Kata is losing the lane but the wave is pushing towards her, meaning she can farm, you end up pushing the wave where Yasuo can easily freeze it and struggle kata from that cs. at 6:00 you are not covering the lane, you are taking the cs and xp from Shako, who was there at full hp and almost full mp while Yorick was backing. At 7:10 you can see that Yorick is just slightly down on cs, a whole level ahead and has a huge wave freezing near his turret, and thats the result of what you did the previous minutes at top lane. Overall your team lost way more from your tactic than they gained from it. Whether you like it or not. Maybe im close minded, maybe im making up rules or whatever, though these are not something you can determine. But at least i dont ruin the game for the rest of my team. You can accept that everyone, including you, was wrong. And then you can just not accept it. But maybe you are refusing to see the bigger picture as to not ruin your self-satisfaction.
: As Somebody Who's Been Perma'd 8 Times, Here's How To Stop Toxicity
Some years ago RITO implemented a permanent chat ban instead of actual perma-bans as an experiment. What they found out was that toxic players will always find a way to show their frustration, even if they cant use the chat. Inting or ruining the game for their team mates in any way. So no. Permanent chat restrictions instead of perma-bans wont do it. And even if 1% of the players that got perma banned were able to reform with this method (while the actual number is way lower than that), this still wouldnt excuse bringing the other 99% of the toxic players back into the game.
: Hey guy, quitting in a game is against the rules. Hard stop, no more explanation needed. Roaming as support isn't against the rules. 5 comments on the thread from others. Not 1 comment to the effect of "players that quit like that should be banned" It proves the point. the community is a joke. Just a bunch of haters that will cut their nose off to spite their face.
AFKing is against the rules. And i pointed that out. Roaming as a support isnt against the rules. Trolling is against the rules. And, as i explained to you, giving your team a very clear disadvantage without their consent can be considered trolling. Roaming as a support is completely different than leaving your ADC fend for himself in a 1vs2 against an oppressive lane for the whole game. I said what you did was wrong. But i laso said what your team did was also wrong. In total, every single one of you was on the wrong.

: League players are a joke
Lets say something first. "Exotic" picks/builds are fine as long as you try to win. About "exotic" strategies they are fine within certain parameters. As long as your team doesnt have a problem with your tactic its fine. As long as you dont actively give your team a disadvantage, intentional or not, its fine. But in here, you are giving your team a huge disadvantage that no one wants and they, apparently, didnt agree to. The disadvantage you are giving them is leaving a squishy ADC in a 1vs2 against a very oppressive lane. I wont say that it was right from your team to go afk. But its not right from your part to give that kind of disadvantage to your team without them agreeing. And i can tel you something for sure. If you did this in a higher ranked game, you would have lost the game before 20 mins.

: Weak Passives
{{champion:101}} His passive is 100% useless expect early laning phase. Especially if you consider his immense range, which mean he wont be getting anywhere near enemy champions to even get that extra mp. {{champion:29}} Some pitiful dot that doesnt really do quite anything. You can say that he uses it along with his e, but its more like getting "marks" on someone rather any meaningful damage from the passive itself. {{champion:102}} Not much here either. Yeah, you deal some more damage to dragons and might get some ar/mr, but nothing to brag about. Just a passive you can live without even knowing what it does.
: So what should I have done in this early invade?
Since you had enemy Liss under her turret you had lane priority. Probably he was expecting you to go with him in the enemy jungle and assist him on driving away Vi and taking over that part of the enemy jungle.
: Okay thank you also I know I'm not high elo I just don't want people to think I am being sarcastic or something xD
I dont think there is anything in what you wrote even remotely close to being sarcastic, though. Well, whatever. Good luck! Riven is high skill cap to play correctly, so you will need it, too.

: Tips for Riven
>Please don't be critical with me or just say I'm bad because I'm low ELO. This wont happen. People here are not critical simply because you are low ELO. They are critical of those low ELO players who either think they know everything, they think they deserve high rank when they obviously dont, lie about their real ELO (saying they are smurfing or stuff) or blame everything on others. No one here will be critical to a low ELO player simply asking for tips. On that note, while im somewhat high ELO (plat), i dont play Riven. The only thing i can tell you, one i know for sure, is for you to learn how to cancel animations. Most of Riven's success comes from this.

So, if im getting this right... A Youtuber suddenly "discovered" that this thing happens. People see that and suddenly they discover that "RIOT is somewhat collects personal information", even though they have no idea how it happens. Its like no one ~~google, microsoft, etc.~~ collects way more than personal info. Who was that guy again? I think his name was Snowden or something?

True. But why is everyone suddenly angry about it now? Why people didnt complain about it like 3-4 years ago or when the current system got implemented. Wtf did i miss?

The real brain-cell genocide was at the university. Only a handful survived. This... You cant nearly call it a genocide.

What if i make them for you exactly as you want them to be, but you will be the only one able to see them. Would i then take all your money? And if yes, how much money are we talking about? How will the transaction be carried? Will it be under a bridge in the cover of the night? Or in an abandoned factory? Will i need a disguise? Will i need something to transport all this money or i will be able to hide them in my clothes?

I never made any claims that they do, I said they 'could'. If they're checking the title of my browser process, what's to say they're not checking the contents? even if they're not checking the contents, you can tell a lot of personal information about a person from the title of their browser tabs. Information I never agreed to give out. Would you be comfortable letting anyone search through a list of every webpage title you've ever visited? I think most people would not be.
No one would be comfortable letting anyone see whatever you have or not have done/searched/whatever on their computer. But still, everyone can and does it. Though, by everyone, i mean every single company that has something running on your computer. They have access to virtually everything on your computer. To be honest though, they are looking for specific things. Its unlikely they search your photos to look what did you dress up in halloween or whatever fetish you search on pronhub. They simply dont care about things like that. And they dont really care much about your personal information, other than collecting them to improve their things. And 99.999999999999999999% there is no real person looking at them. Its just an engine endlessly gathering and analyzing data. Do i like it? No! Do you like it? No! Does anybody like it? No! Can you do anything about it? Except throwing every electronic device in the trash and go back to living like people did in 1900, there is nothing you can do. Not you, not me, not anyone. Btw, if you're on Windows, open up a command prompt and type in "tasklist /v" (without the quotes) then press enter. That's what Riot is looking at, a list of the other processes running on the computer. They dont really care about your weird fetishes or anything else.

: Fair points, the first one isn't true for all cases though, a 15% HP tank is very useful backed up in the correct way. A Cho at 1000HP out of 6000hp is still useful in a fight and alone, a that 638.25 damage does little to a cho with Spirit Visage and Helm but with the press of a button (in Urgot's case) removing them completely because of a 25% threshold. And so isn't that my problem? I don't have an issue with the other 'executes' as they aren't 'real'. My issue is, Urgot's and Pyke's executions in their nature of being near unavoidable have no place in the game because they limit outplay potential? In my original draft of this I mentioned that executes in this case as defined by the idea that it is a specific abilities designed to finish an enemy off because of enhanced damage based off missing HP or below a threshold but I realised that in this designation Darius' Ult wasn't the same as while it can and is mainly used in that way due to the resets, yet just using it without any stacks, it's no more than just a 100-300 true damage ability on a long cooldown. Cho's lacks this definition as well but it has that indicator so... While Karthus Ult can be used as an execute it doesn't deal enhanced damage based on the missing HP of the enemy, if you use to get a Quadra, good job, doesn't make it an execute however. Yet "along with a lot more skills, as executes since they are used to secures kills more often than not." That's every damaging ability. :P
Im not going to argue whether or not executes are annoying af, they are, i totally agree to that. And "execute-like" abilities are also extremely annoying. I just wanted to bring some more clarity on what things are, since such abilities were mentioned as executes. Ill say this as a tank main (and a Cho main at that). There are many variables when considering what a late game tank will do in a team fight if it drops at 1k HP, i say late game because in early-mid dropping at 1k hp is not that bad. If the team fight is a draw at that point and my team doesnt have a clear path to victory, ill just back out a little, close to my back line and soft reset this. As a tank there are many variables you have to consider if you drop relatively low, more so than an ADC or a mage. But my first point was mostly targeted against squishy champions that drop low in a team fight. A 600 Syndra Q wont do much vs a late game tank, but it will kill a squishy. And if a Syndra Q has mid range, there are other long range skills that can kill a squishy that dropped low. My point was that, at any point in League's history, if you dropped at 15% HP you were pretty much forced to either stay put a little further behind and provide whatever "cover" you could without being at risk or straight out leave the fight. If you stay and continue fighting like nothing happens (and you are a squishy) then executes and "execute-like" abilities are not your only concern, even a soft breeze will kill. > Yet "along with a lot more skills, as executes since they are used to secures kills more often than not." That's every damaging ability. :P Yes and no. I mean, Syndra (for example) is more likely to use Q and W in the start/mid of a team fight whenever each of them is out of cd and keep R to finish someone off, rather than throwing a random R at the start of a fight and not use Q at any point but as a last-hit on someone. You get the point!

There's barely any players anymore. There's a reason riot has always avoided publishing their player statistics/numbers. Just look at the amount of threads people make bitching and complaining about quitting this perfectly balanced game.
People have been bitching, complaining and "threatening" to leave since the beginning of League. Nothing new there. The only difference is that, because the player base is way higher than it used to be some years ago and more players come into the boards, the actual number of people doing these has increased, but their ratio towards the whole player base has either stayed the same or lowered. But more people posting these and more people reading them doesnt mean quite a lot. Especially since a lot of players who tell that they are leaving or come here and cry for others reasons, will either go back to playing immediately or they will just have a break of like some days and come back to play. Truth is, there was a point the player base was around 100 millions and it dropped down at 80 millions. Not sure if the player base is getting lower, higher or stays at the same, but considering how many people are around talking about the game, there is still a shit ton of us still playing the game and i dont see any way this will change in the future, unless RIOT makes a huge ass freaking mistake and everyone leaves, highly unlikely though.
Jaspers (EUW)
: Your thoughts on Executes in League?
First off, and this happens in every moba and in league, if you are lower than 15% HP, you always had to leave the fight, especially if you are a squishy, since a stray skill from most champions will probably kill you, for example, a Syndra Q at lvl5 has 264.5 base damage (counting the damage from her passive), that alone is basically more than 10% of your HP, unless you are a tank, fighter or have a lot of HP for some reason. If she has 500 AP, her Q alone will deal 638.25 damage, which is probably more than 40% of a squishy's HP. So yeah, if you are less than 15% HP, a simple stray skill can kill, so either leave immediately or be extremely careful. On a second note, from every champion you mentioned above, the only ones with a real execution are Urgot and Pyke. The reason is, execute, as technically defined, is an ability that, when its conditions are met, will kill its target no matter what. Thats what Urgot's ulty does, once its target drops at 25%HP, he will die, even if that 25% is 2k HP. The other abilities you mentioned are high damage abilities that scale, most of them, with %missing health. If all these abilities were to be executes, then execute as a mechanic exists for many years now. Lee Sin's second cast of Q, Elise spider Q, Kai'sa passive, Morgana W, Volibear's active W, Riven's second cast R, are some of the skills that scale with target's missing health and in the past there were more. The reason why these skills are treated by players as executes is simply because they are used 99% to guarantee a kill on relatively low %HP targets. In that sense you could count Caitlyn R, Diana R, Draven R, Graves R, Karthus R, Kayn assassin R, Lux R, Syndra R, Xerath R, Ziggs R, along with a lot more skills, as executes since they are used to secures kills more often than not.
: would it be crazy to give warmogs the innervating locket passive?
If i recall correctly, innervating locket didnt survive for long. This passive was straight up broken, since it offered infinite sustain. Now, as for putting its passive on warmogs, i dont think it would be good. Warmog's was buffed and is now an item that offers tanks the ability to stay around between skirmishes, though they will still get lower and lower on mp. If you change its current passive into this (since you probably cant have both of them) it will ruin warmogs into oblivion. The health restored wont be enough for a tank to linger around if it gets a beating. Removing the mp component or adding a 10sec cd would ruin the item, since it would ruin its purpose of out of combat regen. Just getting the complete passive, will make it broken, as locket was.

I think this is deliberate from RITO because they want to hold you down. So they have implemented a system that immediately buff the champions of your enemy team while nerfing your team's champions...
: Rubbish rules
You cant use whatever other people say or do in order to justify your toxic actions. You are responsible for your self and only for yourself. If other people become toxic, just let them be, just try your best and move forward. At the end of the day, whether normal or ranked, its just a game. You will have an other opportunity. If you become toxic back, you are only adding oil in the fire. You are accounted only for your actions, no matter what everyone else does.
: Tips to gettign out of low elo (iron bronze silver)
Some good advice, some bad advice. Nonetheless, whether it be good or bad, none of these or all of them together, are enough to get you out of low elo. Game knowledge, mechanics, tactical skill, ability to play in a team with a team, you need all of these to climb. The better you are at these, the higher you can climb.
