: Yay the weekend is here... time to NOT play ranked.
Weekends have the largest players pool , almost double size than during week, that means that the bad ones are twice the number and so OFC the gameplay quality is affected by it. also during weekends there are more scripters/boosted accounts because the larger pool helps them going unoticed. in short, YES playing during weekends is a good way to become mentally ill.

: How high does your MMR have to be before the game becomes playable on the weekends?
my 2 cents : The league players pool usually doubles up during the weekends/holydays. what does this mean ? that instead of 700.000 players online there are 1.4 millions, ofc this would affect quality of gameplay as mostly of this added people don't usually play league during the rest of the week and so they make tons of mistakes in positioning, timing, etc . resulting in you thinking " wtf why are all these people moving so randomly ". if you wanna grind the ranking ladder , don't do it during weekends, just stop playing ranked from 3 pm friday to monday morning. even on normal/arams the matches will be full fledged fiestas but you won't loose rp this way and after a while you will notice that your win rate during the week is surprisingly good, because during the week there are mostly seasoned players and so ,even when you lose, the game will not seem a clown party (with your mid laner facechecking every unwarded bush even in plat) but more something like " dang both team were doing good we/them lost because of a tiny mistake/good outplay "
: you can do this its perfectly fine each server is separated, you'll just be starting from scratch though, so keep that in mind but as far as I know there is nothing against the rules for using the same email for each server

: Champion Weaknesses in 2019
i dunno what to say because everytime you say something along " we're gonna balance better the game " it usually means the full opposite. you released champs with passives on everything just to remove half of them after few months, brainless or just changes for the sake of salary? you should create some system that allow us , the players , to vote for evey change proposal and then if it pass follow it through , because it doesn't feel like you developers/designers/balancers are actually playing the game or got a full knowhow of what the champs can actually do with their kits, instead it feel like you're just watching pro league and be like " oh they overabusing the stuff/item/champ kit we just reworked to be like this and so now we gotta balance(nerf) it , it never crossed our mind they could do that " GOSH 50% of the league servers would probably be able to see that coming from a mile away. quick example : you just removed the "auto pushing" mechanic from the yorick maiden, so now she sticks to him, but you didn't even considered giving her an expiration time , like tibbears , but instead she last till killed like ivern daisy. ONLY PROBLEM is that she's not daisy and yorick is not ivern and their stats and numbers are totally different so people are gonna start abuse that to keep pushing with a ghoul army while being a stronghold to gank because of the maiden presence and as soon as they start to do it in pro play you will need to nerf the shit out of yorick without even questioning your actions that lead to the abuse because you guys are blind af.
: What I see is that rank in aram (consistently) is not a predictor of player performance in aram. High rank seems to mean nothing. Also, if you consistently winning more than losing (i.e., if you have a 60% win rate all the time) then either the MMR system is broken, or you aren't in the bottom 8%. And if you *are* always matched with similar MMR rated summoners, then there are a LOT of high rank summoners with very low MMR if my MMR is accurate and is really 8th percentile. (I see a lot of gold and silver players when I'm playing aram, a few less platnum, and a rare diamond ... but that is what you would expect anyway if I understand percentages at each level).

: I don't think you understand MMR as well as you might think. If a player wins 11 out of 17, that player is NOT going to be in the bottom 8% ... if he wins more than he loses, it just isn't going to make sense that he would be that low. Unless of course the site is not doing its math properly.

Unless of course the site is not doing its math properly. LOL is actually you that don't understand how riot mmr works, it's a system that works better and better on big numbers, it gives 0 fks if you win 11 out of 17 , it's the same as in ranked where you can get 9 on 10 placements wins and end up in iron/bronze even if you were a plat last season. you need to have a solid win rate in at least 50 games ( less if you manage to keep an 80% win rate steadily ) for the system to recognize that you deserve to climb the mmr ladder fast. and it's not the case of 11/17 win rate at bronze mmr. i've been playing aram for years, i probably have more than 4 k games played on it and i'm currently sitting at the top 0,47% of the ladder with a 2700 mmr; i play a lot with master/diamonds players and if i queue and there aren't much people at this level i get even 10 minutes queue. everytime my mmr got higher i felt the increasing difficulty in my games and sometimes this ended in 5/8 loss streak games, after overcoming that my mmr set up at that new level, and this is happened everyfking time it changed of 300/400 , I COULD FEEL I WAS CLIMBING, while if your games are still the same difficulty for you it means you are stuck at your mmr for now. BTW it's the same for ranked, you will never ever get above silver ( if you're super lucky or actually a former challenger you can get to gold/plat but that's just applies to at max 10% of the people playing this game ) even if you go 10/10 wins in placements. you will need more games to climb your first time, a lot more. i'd say that basically everyone can reach plat but you'll need 300 to 1k of ranked games and the 51% win rate XD.
: I despise the nexus blitz
i agree with you, i can't bring myself to like the Nexus Blitz game mode, totally despise it. if i were to give reasons there would be too many but mainly because i find all the senseless forced action boring as fk, if i liked that i'd be playing fortnite/battlerite or some similar stuff, but it's not my case.

: How to fix high ELO ARAM
> [{quoted}](name=Dr Poro,realm=EUW,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=ZooYvGcm,comment-id=,timestamp=2016-07-23T15:17:04.949+0000) > > When you play ARAM and have 50+ wins more than losses, you will never see a team with less than 3 OP champions because > 1) half the players at this ELO have an account that contains only OP aram champions. They use reroll whenever they get one of the bad free week champs > 2) When they're out of rerolls and stuck with a bad champ/team, they simply dodge and wait 30 minutes or hop to another ARAM account. This also makes waiting for a game a lot longer. > > Solution: > 1) Make ARAM actually random by using the entire champion pool, not just the available one. > 2) Punish dodges on aram more severely. If you dodge on an ARAM, disable ARAM for that player for 30 minutes or an hour at for the first time and escalating towards a day or even a week when they keep dodging. They may still play other game modes as they please, as long as they don't dodge in those (but I haven't experienced as much dodges in SR or TT). Have a similar punishment (longer game-type specific restriction) for rotating game modes as I've noticed more dodges in these as well. i play aram at a 2200/2500 mmr , i basically meet players only from high gold and over, mostly diamonds, sometimes master and challengers ( and heck they troll a lot XD ) ofc along with some lvl 30 obvious smurf account and i NEVER EVER ONCE ENCOUNTERED the kind of behaviour you're descripting here. literallyy never ever, except for the dodge part , but i wouldn't say arams are dodged more than normals , imo its the same rate. i don't even know how many arams games i have but i probably got more than some thousands , so i have some solid base over here.

: I lost 7 Promos in a Row. Its like when you finally get to your Series Match everyone becomes even more stupid and throws T_T! It sucks but all you can do is grit your teeth and carry on.
when you are up to your promos the system will match you in team with people that are almost in demotion XD thats why promos are usually harder
: Honestly, is Riven even dominating Bronze? I don't play ranked but I haven't seen a Riven in at least a year. I can't recall the last time I've been afraid that the enemy would pick Riven. 4 Dashes? You mean three tiny hops and one of the shortest dashes in the game? She can use all 4 of them and never reach the back line. Huge AD-scaling shield? That lasts for all of 1.5 seconds. Why is AD scaling even an issue? That's like saying Diana's shield shouldn't have an AP ratio since AP is her primary damage stat. Hard CC? Yeah it annoying, but it's also really short duration. It's dangerous as hell if she's fed but it's not nearly enough to take on anyone even remotely tanky if she isn't fed. Her ult is quite good though, makes her burst harder and gives her a kickass execute. I don't think it's OP, especially as the execute is a skillshot unlike Garen's and Darius' ults. *Seriously people, I'm sure I'd be Bronze trash if I played ranked and even I know that the best way to beat Riven is to **not be an idiot**. Stop thinking that you have to kill Riven 3+ times in the lane phase or you lose to her. **That mentality is why she's beating you.** Riven WANTS you to get aggressive and try to trade with her. Riven WANTS you to feel like you lose unless you play by her terms. **Ignore her. Don't feed her kills and she can't snowball. If the enemy picks Riven then pick ANYONE that can build tanky, focus only on farming and not dying, and buy early armor.***
i met one yesterday in one normal draft, a plat 2 riven in top lane, i tried to use garen ( which i never used after rework ) and basically i had only 2 choices , tower hug and survive ( going under lvl ) or try take some creeps and fight but also die.. in the end i died 4 times and she tool the tower, then i started roaming to make a comeback , i took some kills and towers by split pushing , but she basically outplayed whole my team every fight and won by being 4 lvl above of everyone...i might have sucked, but i still remember a time where garen was able to sustain her dmg and also counter her.. this is not anymore. Also the fact that she has no mana issues makes her really strong in overextended fights where all your carries spend their mana to kill 2 of enemy team , then riven comes from behind and rape them.. i know best way to deal with her is not give her kills but if you find a really good riven these days you can also hope to have a lvl 2 gank from jungler to manage to farm something with a melee/tank.. after yesterday i think i'll simply pick good wave clearers ( like viktor, veigar, lux, ziggs ,etc ) and keep my distance and poke as i farm from the tower safety,. first item zhonya so she can't ez dive.. borest lane ever but at least she doesnt snoball. - - you will say : a plat 2 riven vs silver OFC it has snowballed, but next game i had a mordekaiser plat 2 in team that fed hard a silver 3 garen XD so i think you just need to be a skilled riven player to almost own everyone top lane..

: Ranked game restrictions are a tad severe
personally i must say : this week i played 3 ranked games , won those and wrote almost nothing to anyone then i went to play some champs i never play like bard/thresh/lee sin in teambuilder and blind pick on friday , i had some really bad games and though i was saying " guys i'm rly sorry . i never use this champ , iknow i'm useless this match " i woke up on saturday morning to find out i have 75 chat restricted games and 35 draft to win before return to ranked " why the fk should i be banned from ranked for playing bad in normals ? " was my first thought actually its the third time, once i was banned even though i had just received the green flag for being " a real teamplayer" i don't really get how this system works, for me there is noone to weight out the reports, you get banned only when you reach a certain amount of reports (from anyone,being them your teammates or enemies ) and noone is gonna watch how you actually performed in your last games or how the other players did , noone is gonna watch if you are like honored 70 times and reported 15 and weight this up. if there is a tribunal is just people watching " oh these guys had been reported a lot in the last 2 days, lets see how many for what and then clik on " ban button " ... i like playing league but this year i must say i'am really unsatisfied both with the ban system and with the matchmaking ps : matchmaking thing is about how many games i found myself matched with plats/diamonds player though being a silver 5, i'm actually fine with it as i like the challenge, but in many of these games where i may have plat in my team or vs , there is always some unranked player ( in my team or vs ) that has the worst game of his life ( like 0-13-0 or 4-22-3 or similar KDA ). personally i think the game should be enjoyable even for them and so matchmaking is kinda crap right now. i also happened to find myself in a 5 solo queue team vs premades of 3/4 people ( even obvious teams ,like 4 having same nick ) many times, and i don't get why this should happen since riot states that the game is presumed to match a premade with another premade...
