Why do you think tank ekko, tank fizz, and inting sion are not a thing anymore. I agree with you there. It’s not so much that it has to be “removed” however what if my team doesn’t have a tank? Why MUST a tank be necessary in every game to deal with a Malphite? I want diversity but not in such a way it makes for unstable game play!
: I'm glad riot didn't lock the 10 year aniversery rewards behind honor level 2
The honor system is stupid and should be removed. 99% of the players in this game are gonna report you regardless of what you do because of how toxic everyone is. You give first blood? Reported for inting. You state “stop fighting, it’ll feed the enemy”, reported for Harassment. Your PC disconnects then reconnects for only 2-3 minutes, reported for AFK. You choose to farm instead of feed, reported. Then honor is knocked off your account it takes a whole year just to get back to lvl 2. I literally JUST now reached level 2 honor 1 and I lost my honor in July. I play league every night at least 5 games so that’s like 100+ games since I’ve lost it, and I’m still set back pretty far. (I mean I JUST it lvl 2 Hnr 1 like 3 days ago)

: Is 99lp a ranked design?
Bruh tell me about it. I legit get to 99Lp and have a good win streak and then suddenly I go into a huge lose streak and potentially drop a rank or go back and forth games (Lose/Win/Lose/Win...)... And all the games I lose the streak in normally have someone incredibly lower rank (Iron or not ranked at all) in them, or I get someone who has a huge lose streak due to their negative MMR from trolling/afking/inting.... I really think it is rigged.

: I like the abilities,and those abilities give me to think about the past of Mina and Claec.So this is my theory: Before the ruination,Mina was a child who was alone,every children did not wanted to play with her because she was strange on their opinion.And one day when Mina walked in to an small forest,she met an spirit of nature Claec (Something like Maokai).The spirit was very weak,he struggled between life and death but Mina gave to him some water(or blessed water) and in that way she helped him to survive.For that Claec gave an vow to be always with her and protect her and in that day Mina has finally find a friend.Even after ruination,Mina and Claec walks together. "Best friends till the end." Also this theory reminds to me the friendship of Nunu and Willump!

Mina and Claec did not meet on regular terms. She’s actually dead but she doesn’t know it. Claec is a beast from the war, on the first lands that created the Vastaya race, but he was actually part of the Titans as a defender of them. He however was a kind hearted creature forced to fight for the Titans, but amidst the war, he turned the tides and defended the Vastaya. However, his heroism was not accepted by the Vastaya, so they believed he should be condemned from the lands for punishment. As he walked blindly into a future unknown, he met Mina... a girl lost in the Shadow Isles, forever and purposefully, going in circles as she tried to find her way back home.
: I love that card too, it's so eerie. So glad to see someone take the card and flesh it out. The biggest problem I have with this, however, is understanding it. For example, from what I understood, Mina has a leveling system like Kai'sa but with AP, CDR and MPen. They apply to her companion, but how? Do they just increase in damage? Or do they gain additional effects? If it's just an increase in Damage then they do that automatically with the increase in CDR and AP/Mp. If it's new effects, what are they? The R, if Claec is gone, does the passive no longer work? If so, 35 seconds without it seems like a huge sacrifice just to become impassible terrain. (Like Yasuo windwall but also not passable?). I think it should provide more benefits or not have a huge negative. I feel like you can add more to it. Champs come with a paragraph for each ability now. But I love the concept and the companion, League doesn't have enough of it.

Champs come with a paragraph for each ability now. But I love the concept and the companion, League doesn't have enough of it. Very true, this is more of like just a boost as the spells would not regular gain in power according to Mina’s level. So it requires her to play the roll she’s meant for but doesn’t lock her down (so Mina support could be viable!). Also, I wasn’t really sure on the window of how long she goes without Lol. Just my favorite number at this point.... but very true, might be long. Maybe his spells could get more affects...like his AOE burns at one point!

: So, what does everyone think about the True Damage Band's line-up??
TBH I feel as though Akali having the lore she has was just a set up for her to get another skin. Like Riot could have just not made her lore like that to absolutely not give them a reason to make her another skin. I do love Akali's reworked design, have since it's release.... but the greediness behind it is blatantly obvious. I do NOT like the fact that Yasuo got the skin either as it very well coulda went to someone else. Fuck give it to Twisted Fate and make it a HipHop/Pop/Country band (think Sam Hunt) where TF is a country singer.... Give Akali's position to Kayn or even Orianna... Have Orianna (since she IS a robot) make some cool beats when she's in game!
: Poppy has a negative winrate being played only against the champs she was buffed to counter.
I like to play Poppy support against champs who are heavily mobile or have a huge engage (Leona, Pyke, Nautilus, Alistar) but she just doesn't provide much later on in my opinion. She can't really "Split" push in support position but she also can't really get to the enemy back line to do anything either like a lot of supports can (Namely the ones I already listed)....So her roll there trickles down when she goes support. As for jungle, I actually use to play her as my main jungle champ due to the fact that she can easily engage and counter a lot of jungle champs (Kha'zix, Rengar, Graves, Lee Sin) and not so much in a "damage" way but more of a defender for a lane. If you see a Kha'zix coming for mid, you can easily save your mid laner when he engages because you KNOW he's gonna jump in. Nowadays however, I don't play jungle because most of my supports end up going squishy if I choose Poppy. They think because I'm a tank, they don't have to but then will run Nami or Soraka into a Nautilus and get destroyed. So I stick to support and playing either other tanks or Morgana cause' she's just to good to pass up.

: Tianna Crownguard Appreciation Thread
https://img.rankedboost.com/wp-content/plugins/legends-of-runeterra/assets/card-images/01SI038.png That's how I feel about this girl ^^^^^ A girl who uses live terrain to travel. The terrain attacking the enemy... 2 different characters in 1 champ that play the roll of both Support and Mid... So the girl does all the Ability power while the thing she rides provides support abilities that you can't necessarily access ingame. There would be little cooldown on her health bar of when the support creature would heal/shield or provide CC! And then when she builds AP, those spells develop CDR.

: Probably too much to ask but can we get a additional purposes for blue essence?
Actually that’s what the BE store is for! I believe it’s seasonal (I recall it happening Last winter I believe? Maybe sooner?). It allows you to buy content (icons, skins, wards, emotes) that otherwise would not be available and is specialized as “BE” themed .... so an icon that is legit a Blue Essence stone, blue essence ward, etc. the skins are always a WW and Twitch skin tho I believe (Would LOVE If it was all the old ass 400 RP legacy skins but dreams don’t come true)...

: Do people still think the one who did most damage is highest skilled?
Healing dealt is a bigger one to me. If my healer heals A LOT I consider them more skilled than the one taking the damage cause’ they prolly had to carry that damage.

: She's pick/banned for her spell shield not her Q. If you think stuns are why, then Annie, Anivia, Brand supp should be more common.

If you think stuns are why, then Annie, Anivia, Brand supp should be more common. I think if they just gave one other support a spell shield, you’d prolly see her ban rate fluctuate downward. Hell, wanna buff Karma (since Riot constantly states she’s horrible but does nothing about it) make her R + E combo spell shield the whole enemy team! Or wanna Nerf Pyke cause’ he’s insured right now, remove his ridiculous health regen/out of sight bBS and give his stun a spell shield when he engages instead! There are things that can be done on other champs to buff/nerf them that could revolve around giving other champs accessibility to different, yet old mechanics. I hate that I HAVE to play her every game as support because of Hook Meta... you don’t even see champs other than her and Naut/Blitz/Pyke half the time anymore. Bard, Zyra (tho more common than others), Soraka, and Sona seem hardly played at all in this meta due to the fact that you can easily delete them .-. It’s crazy!

I’m sorry but how many support Morgana’s do you see building AP cause’ they are extremely far and few. Half the time, the first items I have to build are the most MR because of AP mage supports being bot (Brand, Neeko, Vel)... so AP is not at all a focus for most. Her W doesn’t even need AP dmg, it just needs a larger heal.... it’s like 1% healing almost all game even with it maxed. I’m not saying make it instant heal but fuck, give her more health than what is.

: Well, everything I had really doesn’t apply to supports, but it’s OK. I’ll watch the 2/5/12 loss. - I can already tell that Kog’Maw is going to play very poorly. I suspect a lot of the bad things that happen will be more his fault than yours. I suspect there will be things you do that should have been fine but were bad because others (specifically Kog) were playing bad first. - As you know, you guys stayed way too long. I could tell you wanted to back off but Fizz and Kog kept being stupid. While that wasn't your fault, sometimes you have to make the right play even if it’s abandoning your teammates. Just ping them to back off and go back yourself. - Unless your RAD is explicitly trying to push the wave, don’t touch the minions. Even if you don’t steal any or cause him to miss any, it’s still detrimental. It’s not what caused the problems this game, but it’s something to keep in mind. - You misused all three of your abilities within a span of 10 seconds. You threw out E on nothing. I assuming you thought Cho was going to Q, but that’s something you have to react to. Other than reacting to Q, you need to save E for Yasuo’s third Q. You tried to bind the full health Cho who was in the opposite bush instead of trying to hit the hit the Yasuo who was under 50% health. After it missed, you threw down W for no reason at all. With your E down, Yasuo got the easiest launch of his life, which guaranteed the Rupture and guaranteed Kog’s death. And with that, Kog left. I see he comes back, but it’s already lost. The only other loss on a support I can watch is the 0/6/1 stomp. I’ll watch some of it, but things clearly go very wrong very quickly so there won’t be a lot. - This is a tough one. I assume you ate the hook intentionally to protect Ashe. I suppose that’s the right choice, but I can tell you with 100% certainty that the hook was not going to hit her. It’s easy for me to say since I have the advantage of looking at a replay rather than playing in the moment, but being able to determine things like that as they happen is important. - I do not know the matchup of Ashe/Nami vs Blitz/Yasuo, so I can speak only to my analysis based on what I know about the champions. I suspect it’s a very bad matchup for Ashe/Nami, especially both pre-6 and when Ashe has LT. I wouldn’t be trying to Q aggressively. If you want to be aggressive, I would stay behind your minions and get the triple hit on your W. Then if Yasuo decides to dive in or if Blitz charges in, you can Q. - I can’t comment much on the death on Ashe. I feel like Blitz shouldn’t be allowed to just walk up and do that, but that’s getting into the matchup too much. Your Q was well-placed. It was a little greedy to try to hit both Yasuo and Blitz instead of just Blitz, but that might not be fair to say since I’m saying that with the additional knowledge of how things turned out. - With the double kill, the lane is over. The first Q was obviously done; he was going to avoid it with either the dash itself or with his W. The second one onto Blitz was fine. It’s very clear this time that you ate the hook on purpose and it was the right choice as Ashe would have gotten hit. He then went back in and died anyway which you couldn’t have done anything about. And I want to point out that for the past six years, I have played only one top and only one champion in top (other than when I played ARAM). If you wish to disregard what I have to say because of that, it's fine.

If you wish to disregard what I have to say because of that, it's fine. Your advice is VERY helpful. I got hit with like a triple Yasuo in 3 games last night, I chose to just ban him eventually .-. Like did not think he was that popular as most everyone is either going Jinx, Garen, Naut, or Malphite atm.... so I focus ban them more. I think that round I banned Naut? (Lord he’s crazy idk how you can even play safe against Naut, his sustain allows for such a free all in at any point in the game). But thank you, I did step in front of the Ashe Q but as you can see, but games my ADC either AFKed (Kog) or just simply fed (idk if she intentionally did or not but her positioning sometimes pushed me more toward her choosing to INT, one time she even walked directly into them when there was clear visibility of them both.) I eventually went top cause’ I felt my Top lane would do better with my assistance, but then he afked for like 5 mins? So then I just didn’t know what to do as I have poor wave clear as Nami and my team wasn’t really doing good. I know going top sometimes helps, hell even one game I went top on Nami after my Draven flamed me and me and my top laner ended up with the highest KDAs in the game and won lol. The Q on Blitz is impossibly hard to read, especially on some of his skins. I went a game on Ashe I believe most recently, or was it Cait?, where his hook had absolutely no connection to my champ but he still hooked me.... Like even the animation of her (whichever one) didn’t have his hook around me I think, it just straight sent me floating toward him?! I think an issue right now is these supports who are tanks, like blitz, who engage really well have to much freedom to simply walk past the minion wave and engage. Blitz literally just Ws, or flashes past minions, hooks, and you eat 700 DMG lvl 3. @.@ Morgana for the win. Maybe more champs need spell shields? Idk lol. I’m excited for the Lethality changes as {{item:3814}} will stay on like Banchee’s Veil and be AD

I just wish there was new items all together... I get bored of the same item build every game... Diversity would be so much more fun. Imagine Lore inspired weapons! A Zaun weapon that gives ADCs poison in their autos and stacking for champs with poison (Twitch, Cass, Singed, Teemo... giving them some oomph!) or a Targon support item that procs a field of AOE damage or slow of raining/exploding stars...Or a Darkin Dagger that shields a roaming ally when in the jungle so they don’t get Insta-deleted when caught of guard.... a Void gun that attaches to the ally turret to deal additional damage/weaker turret shots... idk, just wish more diversity was in the game... Some of these ideas might be busted but they are JUST ideas.

I can’t control someone afking/rage quitting/client fails... and I certainly can’t control someone intentionally feeding and/or assisting the enemy team.

How do I take a hold on games with allies who are doing everything they can to lose me the game? How can I turn unbalanced scores (3 Vs 27 for example) into balanced scores? Who do I play that is ultimately going to be able to carry me beyond the point of my allies gameplay or trolling? The most effective way for us to help you is for you to post some videos of you playing. Replays are helpful, but not ideal. I am about to watch your 5/4/5 loss as Garen. I will edit this post or make a new one when I am done with some notes.

I know you’re gonna do Garen but note I only started using him in Ranked cause’ he’s unbalanced atm and I think of the 6 games I’ve played on him, I won 4... anyways... if you see any in there for Ashe, Lux, Neeko, Nami or Morgana, please critique those! They are, for the most part, what I play most of the time
: >Maybe give advice instead of having an ego? https://i.imgur.com/wKAfmHK.png[/img] If I had a dollar everytime I seen someone below plat have attitudes like this when receiving tips I would be rich.

Alright then who's fault is it? There is only ONE variable that is consistent in every single game played and that variable is **you**. You can make all the excuses you want for the few games you lose cause of those reasons (RQ/Smurf/whatever), that doesn't change the fact that you're not doing enough to win the games that are fair (because there is no way 171 loses is entirely on things out of your control). As for the inting excuse you realize it's low elo right? Literally the majority of deaths some player makes in that elo **will** be considered "int" if it's high plat+ because these players are held to different standards than low elo players. Unless those players in your games are literally running it down mid, they are not inting, they just don't know any better.

My headlines refers to the ones who literally state things like “get good” or “you’re stuck cause’ you suck”... that’s legit so demeaning to someone who works so hard for where they even are now. It’s like painting my first picture, going into an art museum and being told to never paint again... when ultimately I could’ve been told what better to do! I also do take ownership where I do bad, I’m not saying that it isn’t all my fault. But as previously mentioned in a post above, that 40/40/20 odds TrashBanSystem mentioned, seems rather accurate.

: I found out, that the Kayle build that helps me transition the best is {{item:3004}} . Early {{item:1037}} buy helps immensely with CSing. I think the reason low elo Kayles are struggling is because {{item:3148}} or {{item:3115}} might give you a very very rough early game. 25 AD for 875gold means you can safely farm your way to level 11.

I don’t know why they start off with this item. It seems like her recommend is more for trades than actual objectives. To me she reminds me of a Second Trynd... get attack speed and then hard core push

I've played her, she's legit straight forward.... Auto?! > What can I inform these players to do seeing as they clearly have no idea how to build or play her?! And yet you went 0/7/3 on Caitlyn. Performance has little to do with how one is capable of playing a given champion. There are very few champions in the game that require any amount of actual skill when it comes to pressing buttons and moving the cursor. For the few that do, they just require a few games to get used to doing so and then they're the same as all the others. The real difficulty in playing champions comes from knowing what each champion is capable of in each situation and adapting to what teammates and opponents are doing.

Well if you watched the play back of the game, you’d probably see why I did. I had a Nami who never Ulted when we were engaged by blitz or enemy jungle, as well as the other lanes hard core fed. I couldn’t even focus farming any lane without 3 enemies completely cornering me. That game had no chance of getting ahead because of the early game.
