You have no idea how many hours and effort I've put into improving, and my ranking or skill has nothing to do with the fact that Trist not meta right now. I keep trying to be better always and every single game I play on my favorite character. Do I really need to start dumping stats on you?? Or will you also try to dispute hard stats...
people are playing ,but they are not learning. everyone of you is afraid to try something new and blame everyone who is trying. its a pity...

: Bear with me on this one _(Or don't... I'm just a random person on The Boards)_ I've been trying to play Zoe recently, so I keep queueing up for Mid as my first role and Bot as my secondary, and I just keep getting Bot over and over, which tells me that people just don't wanna play the role. I've been an ADC main since early 2014, and as I keep getting the role while trying to play Zoe, I find that I just hate playing what I normally would enjoy, namely Trist and Xayah, but it applies to every ADC. I've always enjoyed Ashe for her simplicity and great balance. I just don't care for her right now. Talon jumps over a wall and I'm dead instantly. Sivir and Jinx have a similar problem to Ashe, and turns out the only good ADCs right now are those that can Two-Shot you with Lethality or that don't rely on Crit Items. And if I try be creative and play On-Hit Trist with Rageblade and BorK, it just feels atrocious. There's literally no options for me other than go Stromrazor first **EVERY-SINGLE-GAME** into RFC/IE and hope their Irelia (or whatever) isn't too fed by 10 mins and then I become entirely irrelevant. You give me zero build flexibility as a Tristana player. In the end, I find myself playing Karthus Bot simply because it just feels better, and I'm going to comment on this _"diversity"_ in a moment too. First: It's very frustrating that you come here and tell us _"Marksmen were dominant in Pro Play a few weeks ago"_ and I'm just thinking... Meddler: **Pro-Play isn't our game, and it's not relevant to our gameplay experience**. Sej, Ryze and Azir were still played at Worlds and that doesn't mean they're good for the vast majority of us. Someone seeing Rookie go to town on Azir isn't gonna be able to just replicate that in Solo Queue. Also, what weeks are you talking about exactly? Because Top and Mid (and Jungle to a lesser extent) were the Order of the Day for Worlds. Did you not see what happened to RNG when they tried to play around Uzi? Did you not see what TheShy and Rookie were doing to their opponents? Did you not noticed how much more important Solo Lanes were in pro play? What exactly are you talking about when you say _"Marksmen were dominant in Pro Play a few weeks ago"_? Second: Someone commented this elsewhere already, but instead of buffing Crit Users, you should be toning down everything else around them. It's again, very frustrating that you keep doubling down on this idea of cranking everyone's damage to 11. Tanks, Assassins, Fighters, etc. Everyone is just dealing so much up front damage, and everyone's just so sick about it. Third: The _diversity_ you're trying to sell in the Bot lane is very unilateral. You're all for Xerath, Karthus, Yasuo and Darius Bot, but I've never seen you support my Jungle Tristana or Mid Xayah. How come you speak so much about diversity but only support it one way? I personally hate Mages Bot, and yes: I know I'm very bias there, but all I want is real diversity, not just for a few select in the Bot Lane. Fourth: Crit keeps being a problem, and at this point it feels like trying to treat a bullet wound with a band-aid. You know what will happen if you buff Crit Users again? They're gonna become the only good characters Bot. Do you really wanna go back to that _YET_ again?? Insanity is often defined as doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results. It's time that you do a proper rework to Critical Strike. It's been years... Fifth: Are you _seriously_ saying you'll look into how powerful Xayah and Rakkan are together? They've been out for long enough for anyone to tell you that yes: Their power is heavily amplified when they're together. It's frustrating that you care more about making them feel "Special" than realizing you can't do that without a compromise that hurts them when alone. The fantasy of _"They're stronger together"_ is way too vague and it requires their abilities to be weaker alone to then become strong/competitive when they're together. Because of this, you end up ruining both characters alone for the sake of making them _"Feel special together"_ and that's just so frustrating as a Xayah player. Their voice lines make a good job of making the experience of playing them together feel unique. I sometimes joke and say _"Alistar is a fat Rakkan"_ because he can do very similar things with Xayah. He can set her up for a stun and a good multi-man knock up can lead into a multi-man snare with the Ult, and that feels good. Rakkan's kit is good with many more ADC than just Xayah, and I personally think this is an instance where trying to forcefully make them stronger together is hurting them more than helping them. Anyway... I can't speak for every ADC, but for Tristana (and Xayah to a lesser extent) I've spent way too much time playing the character to not feel that something is just _off_, and reading your post doesn't make think you know how to help them without breaking the game (yet again) for Crit users like has happened more than once in the past. This comes from someone who **doesn't hate Pre-Season** outright. I won't quit the game or proclaim that it's dying or whatever, but posts like these aren't very reassuring, specially when you try to make a point based on ADCs being strong a couple weeks ago in competitive or something... seriously what was that about? Have a nice day and take care Meddler. {{champion:18}}
