I can understand some things like heimers turrets. But isn't Yorricks maiden from the shadow realm? Or at least a place close enough you could comfortably say cross paths? Lols designers have always harked on about thematic champion designs and I certainly thing Yorricks maiden should be the exception to the banishment rule. And I don't even play him much.

: Garen is my main in top lane. I need some solid advice!
In seasons 1-5 if you got countered you could play around it. Just. In seasons 6-9 if you get countered you may as well afk under tower and get 1/10 minion farm. Aatrox hard counters Garen. You can have more health. Armour and one combo will chunk you for 80%. Lol isn't a game of skill anymore it's a stat check joke. To answer your question dodge. Everytime. Even the world's best Garens don't beat Aatrox. They just climb high enough that junglers know counters and gank early before they're fed. Riste just sits under his tower Vs Aatrox and in low elo that's a death penalty because junglers are r%%%%%ed. In high elo........it's time to gank and get fed because Aatrox has a choice....push and feed.....or let Garen farm up and risk losing as he scales. In low elo Aatrox can just push and not have to worry because junglers are dumb. So....yeah....dodge. How do you think half these high elo people get high? They premade or dodge. Once you get high enough it's rarer to get useless junglers. Same reason LCS players don't go ham. One overextend gets exploited. And yet in low elo you play safe the MMR system doesn't consider you a carry so punishes you with worse team mates. Shitty system all round. In a more balanced system id say sit under tower farm and wait for a gank. But that won't happen in your elo. Trust me. Sorry for you. The more you play Garen into Aatrox the more your MMR will suffer. .... Thanks Meddler.
: I think i just genuinely miss riot caring about their playerbase.
Of course RIOT care for and love you. Don't be childish. Now shut up and go buy a skin. And preferably a Yasuo or Riven one. They'll love you even more for that.

: Why is Akali getting nerfed over and over again
Why not nerf her? One single misstep and she 100-0 you. It's stupid that dive mechanism.
: Just because there is a yuumi playing as support doesn't meant you dont gank botlane
Low elo. Not ganking because of a dislike of your pick ha ha. Idiots like that Elise will ban yummi a few months now. They'd also flame/dodge me for going mid as Garen. Even though he's got so many counters top now he's useless there. People don't engage brains. I've noticed that. They just follow traditional paths without thinking which is really sad and depressing when you think about it.

Ha ha ha ha ha!!!! Obvious OP is like 11 years old. Get a job kiddo. Work 6 days a week for The Man travelling on a packed train or 30+ miles in traffic for a crappy paycheck barely able to afford to live. Then tell me you can't have a drink of beer when your get home to relax and your srub team mates push the lane stand under the enemy tower until the enemy jungle ganks and their vayne gets a double kill making any hope of a fair game a distant memory. No. Playing drunk is the best way to play LoL.
: The spectacular Riot RNG matchmaking
I don't get it. A simple explanation from riot would be nice. Can't thing of a logical reason though other than to make you lose which keeps that 50% winrate target. I've noticed in games I spank, say go 9/0/15 the very next game I'm absolutely guaranteed a team that's lower MMR/on a loss streak that just feed to uncarryable states. Then I tilt, give up trying and spend the next few games playing random champs I don't know in a feeling of utter hopelessness. It's not that I don't want to win but when the dice is loaded against you it leaves you hollow and bitter.
: I think yuumi is being severely underestimated.
If both laughable and sad how this forum community have jumped on the Yuumi sucks bandwagon. She's broken AF with certain champ combinations. I wouldn't be surprised seeing her picked or banned in LCS. Yummi and YI/Urgot is a scary thought.............. Too bad this community wants buffs. :S

Rioter Comments
: Only because top lane has the largest amount of diversity in the pick there. Therefore, no matter what meta, there will always be a good champ who can and will be played top. Also, top lane is (generally) safer than other lanes, due to junglers tending to focus mid and bot for dragon control, with top lane ganks being something to do when there's nothing else

Keyru (NA)
: It sounds like you had some rough games there. Looking at the match too, you did super well to help carry your team to victory and definitely deserved the win. Many players have already said this in comments but what I do want to mention here is that many players use third-party sites to psych themselves out before a game even begins. Visual rankings are *NOT* 1 to 1 to MMR, which is what matchmaking looks at when creating a team. The system is never actually against you. It works to try to match you with and against players so that you have as close as a 50/50 chance of winning every game, including promos. Looking at the stats for the game (might be a little off since some have played games since then), the match was fair and even on both sides. The system actually matched that game with your team having a higher % to win. I want to share this because matchmaking is always a frequent inquiry we get in support where players feel it is unfair but the system works as it is intended to.

Well that's not entire accurate is it? Players are not matched equally Vs enemy laners just overall MMR. And certain champs in certain roles have completely different carry potential. Let me explain. Top ally S1 Vs top enemy G2 in MMR. Both have little impact in the game. Rarely die. Mid ally G2 Vs S1. Ally zed enemy whatever. Other lanes all equal. All MMR is balanced. 50% win rates likely.....on paper statistics. Who do you think is going to weight the game snowballing, roaming bot, getting doubles, dragons and soon being able to 1 shot ultimate the G2 top (because resistances are so poor?). And who's ally ADC gets ahead then? At least do me the honour of a human being and answer this. You can say matches are 50% WR weighted but you know certain roles have faaaaaaar more influence than others numbers be damned. At least give me the courtesy of denying this.....

Sure, everyone gets access to information on how to play out laning phase, wave manipulation and control, jungle pathing, itemization etc. Everyone can get better. I've tried, and achieved in a big percentage, to apply all these mechanics into my game. If I play mid or top lane, I always try to apply these, and I do see that I win lane most of the times. I get to outcs my enemy, and be in a position to apply pressure or help my jungler by having priority. > This is just one instance of how I manage to "beat" my direct opponent. But, is this enough?

You probably won't ever reach that. > > Where I am going with this is that the ranking system is very unrewarding and in all these I could add the bad matchmaking. I've been rewarded by it and I've been screwed by it as well, but as it's always the case, you get screwed much more often. How am I rewarded for playing out my lane well and winning it, but having a 0/9 jungler at 15 minutes? And it's not like I can win by much harder so assist my jungler, because my enemy is not a monkey to allow that to happen, no matter how far ahead I am. The "extremely bad" player in my team is giving a big lead to the enemies, much bigger than what I can create for myself and try to help my team win. So, how exactly am I rewarded for doing well in lane? > > I know the answer you will give me. "It's a team game." Yes, it is a team game, where there are also elements of solo play. When you start out the laning phase, it's mostly a 1v1 scenario, where how good or bad you do impacts how good or bad you and your enemy laner does for the rest of the game. Sure, you can say that it's a 2v2 with the junglers being a part, but no matter how well you can set up a lane for a gank, or if the enemy doesn't have Flash, it's not a guarantee the your jungler will help, therefore you can only really rely on the 1v1 situation to get yourself a lead and transition that into the mid game, where the team aspect of the game actually comes into play. > > But this means that I can't really control anything else on the map. Not really. If my enemy solo laner is at least competent, they are not gonna let me get a big lead to outdo the badness of that one "extremely bad" teammate. So, in a game where I "beat" my lane opponent based on performance, gold gain and priority / pressure, I end up losing LP and they end up gaining LP. I lose LP in a game where I BEAT my enemy laner, who GAINS LP. And that's what I don't understand. The system is just not fair. > > You are going to say that "well, if you do know in your mind that you actually are better, then keep it to yourself and feel good about it and do not care about some division ranking". Sure, I could do that, but more importantly for me, I want to climb so that I can get to play with and against better players. I want to see the limits of myself and how high I can get. How can I match up against better, much better players, and I can't really do that by hovering around 50% win rate, and having every game be a freaking coinflip. "Oh, I got the first time Fiddlesticks jungle, who by the way has a 47% winrate, guess I'm losing LP now". Fiddle ends up being 0/9 at 15 minutes, while the enemy jungler is like 6/0. Well, I was having a 20 cs lead at 10 minutes in mid lane, but guess that's nothing to stand up to that enemy Kindred now, is it? Mark another loss. "Oh, a Draven player who has played 20 games this season and has a 17% win rate. Ah, fuck, my Draven already died 3 times in 7 minutes because he magnetically attracts all of Thresh's Qs, guess I'm useless now as well and I'm losing LP again." > > > I know most of us have been here and I know what you are gonna say. Eventually the trolls will balance out between you and the enemy team and if you perform well, you will achieve at least 50% win rate, meaning you will climb. Yeah, I know. Eventually, I will climb. EVENTUALLY. I don't have time to play 1000 ranked games though, therefore I will never climb to at least half way of where I feel I should be. AND THAT IS WHAT I WANT TO TARGET WITH MY POST. Why should someone play sooo many games to reach close to what they deserve? And don't give me the "if you've played so many games and can't climb, you probably belong there". No, fuck you, I don't belong there. I don't belong there, because how am I supposed to win a game where my top laner is 0/15? How am I supposed to win when I win my lane IN ALL ASPECTS 90% of the time and still manage to lose the game because of reasons? > > The ranking system needs to change so that people who perform well actually get rewarded. Winning and losing obviously matter, but performing well matters more. And people need to be rewarded much more directly. Don't make me play 1000 games just to reach half way through what I CAN reach. Fix your freaking matchmaking, so that people who should actually "win" 90% of their games based on their personal performance can actually win at least 60% of them, so that it doesn't take 1000 games to climb, but it only takes 100. Did you spend all day writing that? Good news! Meddler gets what you earn in a week in 15 minutes ignoring this post. Truth hurts. Sorry. Not my LOL anymore.
: Why i with many old school shaco onetricks don't like new shaco

There is really only one build for shaco and i don't feel like that is a good thing. > > #revertshaco Don't mind. Don't care. AP too shaco is pure hell on earth. Your champs bit getting buffed. Crymoar.

Nope. Morgana is fine. I'm actually amazed they didn't give her true DMG and hyper motility. Nothing like a few free dashes eh?

Regardless of build. Sooner or later you lose. I leave lane and get mid/bot fed.
: Started the season in Silver 1 now 2 weeks later I am Platinum 2
That's because riot want you to ruin silver and gold games. Enjoy!!!!!! Because chances are you've ruined 100...maybe 200 low Elo games being above their skill. Nice.
