Give the matchmaker one single brain cell? You would be surprised how often this happens. This is such a depressing way to lose a game.

Our team also had no autofills, except that our ADC was on support, and our support was our ADC. Our bot lane played poorly and lost their lane, and that was the entire reason we lost the game. And to think that we had a good ADC, and we had a good support! But they weren't on their damn roles! We had all we needed to win that game! If only the match maker had a brain. If an ADC player can't play support, or a Support player can't play ADC, then they aren't a very good bot lane player :3 Of all people to autofill the role, they should know best what their partner needs/expects.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: May 24
Hi Meddler, Are you happier with where the game is at right now compared to this time last year? I think the playerbase is a lot happier that the rate of change has slowed down a bit. Even the pro scene was struggling to keep up with the continuous rotation of OP/UP champs b4. I still feel that dmg items are too strong compared to defensive items these days, especially in low-mid levels of play, but things are a lot better than they were in S8 imo.

Once you're behind, it basically feels like you're a liability. You messed up once? Now they got a longsword and a whole level advantage over you.

: Didn't play mid in a long time, what runes are best in 9.9 on AP?
I've been trying out scorch a bit since it's tiny buff. Can't decide for the life of me if it's worth subbing out Gathering Storm or not. If it helps you to win lane and snowball, it's totally #worth. But if you don't win lane and snowball, Gathering Storm is far better at keeping you in the game later on. :3

: What in the actual fuck is going on with matchmaking right now?!
game is super snowbally atm due to turret plating and huge dragon bonus stats. pick strong early game -> smash opponents face in early -> free win late (unless u throw) about ppl running it down - when a lane goes 0-1 or 0-2 down, they need help to get back into the game, otherwise they will die for every cs they try to take and thats why it look like they "run it down" when rly they r just trying to play the fkin game. but u lose so much exp/gold from an early death / walk back to lane that its hard to contest cs after that and it snowballs out of control from there.

He believes champions like orianna, karma, liss or lulu may start showing up mid just to stat check protect the crit ADC (the 1v9 damage dealer) and how the new PD has completely nullified any hope for assassins (on a personal note, if you think about BT shield + PD + overshield rune + GA how disgusting + the support shielding returning, how disgusting). He also talks about how so many champions are so incredibly bad compared to the "good" champions and how mid lane has none of them. Talks about how league always goes through this cycle of how mid and jungle start sucking and top is just top and the entire game just becomes crit ADCs and their protection from other roles. He called the ADC changes "a bomb" into the game and defines "a bomb" as something that is overtuned and doesnt get hotfixed and just thrown into the game unchecked which proceeds to "warp the meta" around it, he does state bombs are interesting. > > He goes on about it for like 10 mins , I suggest everyone check it out, its very eye-opening. I do find it odd that anytime a champion becomes interesting or popular in the mid lane, its instantly nerfed. But ADC mains who continue this repeating cycle of demanding buffs have normalized the game's climate/culture to expect ADCs to be running around as the most important member of the team as the "norm" where as whenever a mid lane champ becomes the most important character on the team its insta nerfed. I do agree with him on midlaners dealing no dmg anymore, why land your abilities to deal like 500-600 dmg when a vayne or something can just stand and auto attack for 800-900 Qs or 500 phys+500 true dmg hits coming at very high sustained unavoidable dps. > > A good example is how zed (a champion that people generally dont like to deal with and a champion that is often regarded to have really high damage) will often have his ult pop for 800-1200 dmg which is alot but when you realize draven can literally auto once with an axe and the new IE shiv BT LW conqueror etc for nearly that amount or when vayne can press Q , proc the 3 hit true dmg, and get a crit to do what like 1200 dmg? Its pretty insane. When riot initially reworked IE , they also changed up Cait's headshot and _**buffed it significantly**_ to make up for the loss of crit multi on IE , which cait's headshot had a unique interaction with. Now they have reintroduced the old IE and cait's headshot is still left as it is. The end result is seeing leblancs lose 70% of their hp if they step on a trap to late game caitlyn. Is that fair? especially when traps can be placed underneath you when you are hard cc'd by like a sej or something. ADC still are 100% reliant on their team to survive and 100% the weakest champion on the map for first 20mins of the game. Exploit that window if you are so scared of them. ADC has literally been in the dumpster for the last 8+ months. Heaven forbid they can actually be allowed do their role properly now..

These are all rather popular champions that can no longer feasibly exist in solo queue. Meanwhile, in solo queue, since it isn't a problem in pro play, we have Spear of Shojin Jax and Fiora, completely outdated champions like Pantheon and Shaco... I mean cmon.

Straight out ban champions in pro play, for all I care. It DOESN'T EVEN BEGIN TO IMPACT THE BAST MAJORITY OF PLAYERS. unfortunately in League, pro play is vital to the survival of the game. there are a tonne of ppl who watch lcs and dont even play the game any more. so having a balanced pro scene is more important to riot than having a balanced game for casuals. if you want to play a MOBA without a pro scene to worry about, HotS is waiting 4 u with open arms.

Its damage or else... > > League has even lost its top spot as the most played game in the world and I believe its because of the awful direction that this game is heading in. Most gamers are about my age 25-30 and don't want to play this rubbish with ridiculous power crept new champions with insane ultimates and insane damage and insane mobility. We want to play a slower, more strategic League of the past where you could not just kill a tank in one combo with {{item:3147}} and turrets were actually a credible threat to the other team. > > _**What happened to this game that I used to love!?**_ > > Pushing champions in "roles" now and forcing a meta is killing this game. Riot used to design champions and leave it up to PLAYERS to figure out how to use them and in what lane. Now they are creating one-trick ponies like rework {{champion:44}} that can ONLY be used in one lane. Old Taric could be taken top occasionally and sometimes even jungle. Why would Riot kill off diversity in their own game? > > The way I see it, Riot have gone EXACTLY the same way as Blizzard. They have forgotten their days as a small company, making a QUALITY product and nowadays just churn out any old garbage and making sweeping changes to the game simple to make profit. They have forgotten how to skilfully craft an experience, the ONE thing that made them great. The artwork teams continue to churn out fantastic art work and promotional material but the gameplay team are constantly letting them down. > > I'm not even mad or salty... just sad for Riot really. I loved this game and the company. They used to be for PLAYERS first. Now they are for MONEY first and it really sickens me that both Riot and Blizzard have fallen in this way. Two great game companies that really used to care. > > Now they don't. +1

Honestly I liked to play jungle and only jungle because I have no fun in other roles but I'm just thinking about quitting the game because it has became a pure coinflip. Either you get kills early game on lucky ganks and you're allowed to have a game, or you don't and you're just going to be a moving and visible ward. welcome to the bot lane experience. plz enjoy ur stay.
