But it's still just buttons. And frankly, there isn't much choice involved, as once you master it; it becomes the meta for you. While the unstoppable meant you needed to make choices whether to use it as defense or offence and so on. Not to mention allowing you to trade with cc spambots like Riven.

: If you are lower even if you win all placements, whats the point?
Winning increases your mmr, which means you get more LP from wins. Making you climb faster. But you still need to climb, even if its just a division. You can't just coast by. Riot wants an active ranked scene, and they will enforce it.

It only works vs very specific match-ups my hairy butt Right, because Nasus is objectively strong right now because he just had a new skin out. Some matches it's better to go Grasp, some Klepto is better. Hell even Comet and Fleet footwork function. And he gets to pick which to take based on the match-up. Skewing the numbers towards the keystones, because is is simply more likely to win. If you are gonna cite statistics, take your blinders off and actually try to understand the data.

Rioter Comments
: Ranked is not the time to find out if the new champ is "good" against another
Yes, but also they are their elo because they do stuff like that. Outclimb them. It doesn't matter if it's this or a dozen other things, it's simply a determining factor of their elo. Outclimb them. Learning how to deal with a fed kat is part of that. Knowing when kat is insanely strong and banning her, is another.
: Would you report your jungler for playing without smite?
No, I offer to duo lane or duo jungle till they get on their feet(I play toplane or support usually). Because it's mostly the early clear and objective control you need smite for. You don't need smite to win. You just need one person to not be a selfish judgmental asshole and help their teammate. Remember, generally they aren't the only person who didn't notice in lobby. Any other player could have warned them.
: Why Does Playing Support Mean I'm Bad At League?
I started playing support because I sucked at the game. You don't have to cs and fight at the same time. You don't have to carry. You don't have to wait for a good moment and have all the pressure to do well when it comes. You get to focus on supporting your team to do so well. That doesn't make it an easy job, or one you can't be very good at. But it does mean that a lot of the things that are required for other roles aren't an issue. It's a different game. ADC are good because of what they do in the moment, supports are good when they set that moment up a minute ago. ADC for instance generally don't notice the set-up, they just see a good time to go in and how awesome they were in the moment. Which makes it easy to say that playing support makes you bad at league, because it's a different game. One other roles generally neither understand or excel at. Which is why so many rage and feed when they get autofilled. It's not the game they wanna be playing.
: Why am i getting less Lp for each match?
The game seems to look at your performance, assign you a certain elo, then gives you more LP to get there faster, at which point it evens out, and you are stuck with climbing on your own merit by winning more.
: Dodged 1 game = 30min penalty?
It doesn't reset every day. It adds up over time, and slowly gets lowered as you don't afk or dodge. This was just the straw that broke the camel's back. Because you do it regularly enough that the decay doesn't help enough.

"I haven't even said shit to these people or flamed them or anything. I'm honor 4. But for real, jesus please stop putting me with retards im fine with people who are just bad but fuck these asses just trolling rank solo q. " I was about to ask. You might wanna start pinging and instructing via chat. Having a good team leader can really help when you have team members that lack a plan or insight.

It's free assist gold from across the map before upgrades. That alone is literally worth a lot. His gold advantage in an otherwise 0-0 lane is insane enough as is.

: There's no reason to buy rune pages anymore.
I really like having a couple of presets for my mains. Or one single called "adc" for when I get one in ARAM. I don't always trust myself to make the right choices on the fly, especially regarding roles I am not very familiar with. But simply having 1 runepage called "stuff" that gets changed practically every game works nicely also.
Bârd (NA)
: The manaflow band changes are the wrong way around.
That rewards high mana cost abilities every now and then, over lots of low cost abilities. It should be just as viable a choice on Singed as Lissandra. For that, mana restoration works better than free spells.
: The New Lux skin for the year of the dog
Because Lux skins sell? While Nasus and Warwick less so, so by adding her to the package it's more worth it to put so much manpower on the skinline.

Rioter Comments
: What people don’t understand about skins.
There are a lot of factors that come into play regarding skins. Buying power and likeliness of purchase of the player-base of a champ being one. If Lux and Ahri players tend more to just buy whatever cool skin comes out, and there are a lot of these players, then why not make more skins for them so you can bankroll a team to work on say a Yorick skin, which might have less players, and of those players a lesser percentage of skin buyers.
: So me and a friend started playing taric leona bot lane...
Look, I hate to drag elo into this. But I think it's one of those things thats works mostly because people don't know how to work around it. Something that comes from a combination of skill and experience. So the higher elo you get into, the less successful something like that becomes. That said. It sounds hella fun. Much like the Sion- Leona/Ornn lane. I really wanna try it.

: I guess the live design team truly doesnt play the game.
They don't want the game to be balanced as a whole, because then it would become too obvious that they buff and nerf based on upcoming skins. They have been doing so more and more since Chinese Disney took over. Try to enjoy the game, but don't expect it to actually ever be balanced or perfected for anything other than bottom line.

: lol it's some real noob ADC's that are buying either one of those things. they aren't "abusing" shit, all they are doing is shafting their own build with that stupid crap. The reason why I say that is literally every gold income item is a fail to buy as an ADC, does it have...what are the first two words in the term "ADC"? Is it "Item Gold Income Carry?" Is it "Support Item Carry?" Is it "AP magic damage carry?" No. it's Attack Damage. Since all of the gold income items have *zehro* attack damage, I can't help but feel that any gold income item is a lateral move at best that really doesn't help anyone, not on an ADC.

Increased lane sustain means you can more easily get cs because it's safer. Which means that Targons, on top of giving free gold over time and gold to your support, allowing them to better keep you alive come midgame, you also get free gold from poking via Bandit. You know what ADC do with gold? They buy items to kill people with. BF is better than pickaxe. BF is more expensive. More money means more damage, which means a won lane. A won lane means a won game, these days. Also, {{item:1083}}. Literally an item created with the above in mind.
: Ahri's Lore, something that is keeping me wondering...and her strange anatomy.
I feel like you are asking if a fork is dinnerware, an utensil or steel. The answer is yes. They are not exclusive. A sunstone could be a type of gem. Gems are trinkets, or tokens.
