: Azir bug with Morde Ult
I'd like to point out that it's not just his soldiers. Azir simply can't damage Morde with any ability when ulted. I'm not sure about basic attacks, but I know Q, W, E, and R do no damage to Mordekaiser. As an Azir OTP, I just ban Morde now. This bug cost me too many fights already.
: Can I get lower than 60ms using VPN?
Pretty much the only way to reduce ping is move closer, or transmit the electrical signals through the wires more efficiently and more directly to Riot's servers. Since you're not able to do the latter on your own, your only real option is to move closer. That said, 60ms is not that bad. It's noticeable and a pain in the ass if you're coming from Korea or Illinois, but the vast majority of us on NA play at around 50ms, so you're not at much of a disadvantage.
: Veteran Player Who Still Cannot Perform in League of Legends
It's entirely possible that since you're playing at a low level, you're not getting punished for some serious mistakes and thus think it's the right move when in reality, if you were doing that same move in say, D3+, it would NEVER work because they know how to punish it hard. That's paraphrased from an LS video and not from personal experience, so don't take that as me saying I'm better than you or something because I'm probably not. The best course of action here is to get a mid-high diamond (or above) coach who will sit down and walk you through what you're doing right and also what you're doing wrong. Just google lolcoaching and you'll find a website with plenty of free high elo coaches - Some of which specialize by role or champion, some are more "all-around." EDIT: Turns out the website I was thinking of merged with some other nonsense and they no longer offer freebies. :( I still say coaching is your best shot and I'm sure you can find free coaches with some web searching.

How badly do you want Sion to be extremely contested in Solo Queue?

Dodging doesn't effect your MMR. That's something worth keeping in mind. In terms of why it's low, I couldn't tell you.

: @RIOT Problems with the game from a shitty silvers perspective.
You say "team comps matter" and "top lane is cancer" then proceed to play troll shit like AD Soraka top. Are you even trying? I ask that as honestly and sincerely as I can. Are you even considering any of the factors that go into ANYTHING you just said other than "Not everything works and that makes me angry?" Soraka's AP ratios are low because she has items that literally amplify healing and shield power. You don't need ratios when the items you build give you 10% more healing or shielding each. Her ratios aren't even that low. You just refuse to build AP or support items for some reason.
: Games will be the same length, but with a shorter mid-late game and longer laning phase
S9 meta, at least preseason, is going to be "Whatever champion can perma-shove the wave soonest and most efficiently." Sivir, Malzahar, and Yorick come to mind. (Maybe there's something that can shove better than Yorick in top lane. My top lane knowledge is lacking.) I'm not sure late-game champions will be obsolete because a lot of their laning phase is just perma-shoving the wave to prevent interaction in the early game as much as possible.

: This is kind of an extreme scenario. Why not have your kids be involved in a music of sports program to spend their free time or heaven forbid actually spend time with them yourselves? Why is it online addiction or drug addiction and nothing in between the only choices? Being a viruoso at an online game is not a good thing if you are sacrificing sleep/friendship/relationship/work/study/exercise/etc. to make time for those games and I guarantee you that most people in Gold or above have done just that. This is a typical poor counter argument where you pull an extreme example of something even worse to justify an addiction. It's like the guy hooked on booze saying it's better than being hooked on meth.

Not everyone likes sports. Not everyone wants to play an instrument. Also, almost everyone who is a master of their craft has made huge sacrifices somewhere. Extremely good musicians miss out on a social life, sleep, schooling, etc. Athletes do, also. Prestigious scientists miss out on these things, minus the school aspect.

: To be completely honest, this would be the first time I heard of **Tourette** Syndrom affecting written language. I'm by no means an expert, but it seems weird to me that what is essentially a tic would cause the precise finger movements required to not only type out a word but then also hit enter. Paired with the fact that Riot doesn't even punish for swear words as long as they are not directed at other people I have to say that I'm a bit sceptical. Edit: Also, if you want to so blatantly lie about having a disease you cannot even spell correctly, you might want to make sure that you didn't very recently write a post in another thread that very directly contradicts what you said. > [{quoted}](name=KilledWithIgnite,realm=EUW,application-id=ZGEFLEUQ,discussion-id=13NTn97A,comment-id=0001,timestamp=2018-10-17T09:24:55.030+0000) > > Riot usually gives very little information about their bans.

That was a "direct threat to your teammate" (no swar words, fucks ecc. used) So which is it? Are you being punished without using swear words, or are you punished for inadvertently using swear words?
I didn't want to say it. I'm glad someone did. If OP is lying to get his way, it's a pretty disgusting way to do it.
: Turret's syndrome and bans
I believe AutoHotkey allows you to unbind your enter button. There is no way to do it in the game settings, or even the game files IIRC, which is how people used to create obscure keybinds such as attack move on left click before it was implemented in the client itself.

: I'm garbage at this game.
Farm better, die less. You die a LOT in all of your games. Even the ones you win. Your CS is also really bad - Especially on your most recent champion, Kayle. You cannot play Kayle and only get 4-5 CS/minute. Mordekaiser is a little more lenient in this particular area, but hyperscaling champions like Kayle will never do anything of value in a game if you're only getting 4-5 CS/m. You're also putting yourself at a serious disadvantage by not taking Flash. It's even worse considering the champion you don't take Flash on is an immobile melee champion. I'm not going to pretend I'm a pro on Mordekaiser or top lane, but not taking SOMETHING for mobility (Flash or Ghost) is something I would laugh at if I were against it, even if it wasn't my lane opponent. You're making yourself essentially a free kill to whoever wants to come to your lane unless you have ZERO lane pressure and literally are sitting under your turret every game. At that point, you're making things harder for everyone on your team because your laner is free to roam wherever he wants with little to no punishment. Pick one champion that you enjoy, and stick to it as much as possible. It's not impossible to climb if you're playing a bunch of different champions, but different champions require different mechanics, and you have game fundamentals that you need to focus on in every game, rather than trying to juggle 5 or 6 different champions' unique mechanics. While not impossible, you're making climbing in rank and getting better at the game harder than it needs to be by doing so. If there's one way to consistently win at your ELO, it's to absorb as much pressure as you can WITHOUT DYING. This means taking getting consistently camped by the enemy jungler, mid laner, or whoever else and not dying to it. Just wasting their time and in turn, allowing THEIR lane opponents (Your teammates) to do whatever the hell they want in that lane. Take turret, get free farm, get vision, or whatever. There's one thing you can rely on your teammates for at low ELO - Making mistakes. Absorbing pressure assures that they can make as many mistakes as they want without actually putting your team at a disadvantage. Are you going to get a 100% win rate this way? Nope. Are you going to have a winrate above 50% and therefore, climb in rank? Definitely.

Pretty much sums up the general population now. This. IF I ever have kids, I'd rather them be glued to a chair in front of a computer screen over out with friends getting addicted to shit that can kill them. Neither is particularly healthy and both have some serious downfalls, but if both scenarios are taken to the absolute extreme, I'd much rather see kids and young adults have a serious addiction to WoW or LoL than meth or heroin. By the mindset of the OP, being a virtuoso at *anything* is not a good thing.
: An Overused Item: Corrupting Potion
Corrupting Potion is fine. It's the mastery that makes it a great start for virtually any champ in any matchup.
: The Cost of Failure: Does League's Design Discourage Champion Interaction?
I only want to touch on one of your points here: Multiplicative cost of failure. Losing objectives and key fights suck, but something that Riot and we as players need to take into consideration is low ELO play. If these situations weren't very snowball-y in high tiers and pro play, Bronze and Silver games would take FOREVER. Like it or not, Bronze and Silver tiers takes up slightly less than 2/3 of the entire playerbase, so this is definitely something that needs to be taken into consideration. There's already a noticeable discrepancy in game time between high and low ELO, and while I'd like to see my games last longer and pros be more willing to take risks in their games, I also understand why the game has to be this way in order for low ELO game times to be as healthy as possible.

You can already spam soldiers to get extra attack speed for siege, so adding that passive back in would be kind of counterintuitive. I feel like most players would opt for the bonus attack speed anyway, because it gives you a means of escape or a way to fight whereas using charges on the turret would give turret damage and leave you as a sitting duck. 1. Jax. And to say that it's unfair because of flash is the fault of flash existing at all and being treated as if it's fair when many champions lack mobility. You can't say it's unfair for a champion to have two forms of cc (that aren't several seconds, you're a liar), because some champs are immobile. 2. No, no it wouldn't. And you don't get "extra" attack speed, you still get less than he used to with his old kit even, but have to blow three soldiers to get it.
Jax has 1 form of CC that can be cleansed and is reduced by tenacity, and his stun is insanely telegraphed. Azir's knockup on E is not anywhere near as telegraphed. It's not unfair for a champion to have 2 forms of CC (which would result in multiple seconds worth of CC), but it's unfair when that champion has all the other stuff in his kit AND that CC is a double knockup.

It makes his ult impossible to dodge unless you use your mobility BEFORE his dash is finished, and in the cases of most mages, that mobility is flash.

: So basically all champs that have shots like syndra take comet and with almost the General midlane aery?
If you're against something with spam-y mobility like Ekko, Katarina, or LeBlanc, Aery is better because they'll just dodge Comet constantly. Comet is better against champions with little-to-no mobility like Syndra, Vel'Koz, or Orianna because it scales much better as the game goes on and those champions won't be able to dodge as many.

Push towers. You don't win from fighting. You win from taking towers. There are multiple TFs here that you won and took nothing after.

: New Cassiopeia nerf
Cass' E has a small fraction of the cooldown Annie's Q does. They didn't nerf it because the last hitting was a problem. They nerfed it because Cass was rushing a defensive item and having little to no tradeoff in terms of damage. I think it was something like -4 damage by building mask instead of RoA and getting a shitload of MR on top of it. Now before any argument of "Well, Annie could essentially build the same thing and not lose out on much damage..." Well, yeah, she can, but she also stops dealing damage for a significant period of time while her CDs are down. Cass doesn't have to stop. Cass stops when she dies or runs out of mana. Annie has 1 rotation every few seconds. Cass spams E every .5 (?) seconds. Annie can blow 1 person up before she has to wait for CDs. Cass can just keep going. All while the enemy Taliyah is doing pretty minimal damage in return.
