This is a viable strategy... lol. Banned over camping a lane sounds ridiculous.

: I wouldn't mind if finishing the quest gives you a dedicated control ward slot. It's frustrating as fuck when you're a support with 5 completed items and you have to choose between a final item and having control wards in your inventory.
I agree, it does get annoying. But riot did this on purpose, so the longer the game goes on, the more dangerous it is to wander alone. It basically increases risks late game for those who travel alone in the dark.
: Would you like to play with me?

: Support's responsibility
Umm, maybe try not being as aggresive about this? Anybody is allowed to play any role, just because he is not good at warding doesn't mean he's doing in on purpose. Besides, if every other member of the team warded on a daily basis too, this maybe wouldn't be as much of a problem. I agree that warding is something supports should do the most of, but the rest of the team also have their responsibility in it too. This can't be reportable, because some people play for fun, and not everyone is as good and whatnot.
: I feel like "mental boom" loses more games than "feeders".
Its true, sad but true. I try to keep flaming out of my games, and try to encourage my team as well. Here's a tip: if You are carrying your team, keep telling them good job and whatnot, and keep friendly, that will help them listen to more pings and improve team morale, making your team a better unit than the enemies. All it takes is some good fights, and then you morale your troops to victory.

I actually enjoy the competitive nature. I barely have fun in games without competition, so to me, that is fun.

: If someone says "learn to CS" tell them they're a skrub. The reason you struggle more with top and bot lane as opposed to mid lane, is the lanes are longer, and that makes wave management more impactful. I'd suggest finding some wave management guides on YouTube and trying to implement what you learn in your games. As far as team fighting, you should first make an effort to learn the important cooldowns of enemy champions. Knowing that Lissandra's ult is up or down should greatly influence how you play a teamfight, as well as knowing what it does. Attack move clicking is important on any ranged AD champion and should almost always be done when attacking enemy champions. I bound my attack move click to T instead of A (it feels more natural to me, try it). It helps to avoid misclicking and causing yourself to position badly, or waste time when you could be attacking. The basic premise of it is to move in between each of your shots to maintain optimal positioning in fights, or to avoid skill shots. The final note about attack move clicking is sometimes, if you time your flash well enough, you can put enough distance between you and an attacker so that you can turn on them. You should do this in cases where if you continue to run, their mobility skills will come back up and they will catch you. As far as positioning as an AD Carry, you need to learn the ranges of the burst champions and engage champions on the enemy team. Zed, for example, can assassinate you from fairly far away. If the enemy team has a Zed, stay way the fuck back so that the man has to walk through your entire team to get to you. EVEN if this means you aren't attacking in this time. If Zed is dead, or his skills are down, you can walk further forward to attack. This rule holds true for any engage champion with CC or assassins. Additionally, a lot of people tell you to focus the squishies - don't. Focus whatever is in front of you. If you can safely focus a squishy, do so, but usually, your only option is to focus front liners. If you move forward to focus the squishies in the back, the front liners will eat you alive. Most of my advice is about ADC just because top lane champions are so different and so varied that I cannot give you blanket advice on it.
thanks, This will help greatly.

: Does RIOT actually hire people who knows how to code? (Client Bugs)
: Classic Promos. Riot stacks them in the enemy teams favor so you will fail more often then succeed. This way they slow the climb and keep people in lower ranks longer.
I dont mind losing if its a 5v5, if I lost then, that means I dont deserve that rank, but a 3v5 hardly seems fair...

: Distribution of Rank (Definition of Lower Elo?)
You can be lower middle rank, just keep at it. It may seem hard at first, but practice does work. FIGHT ON!!!
: Night and day in league :D
Its a great idea though, It would be cool to add, but would require so much changing, the onl way possible would be to give a giant game changing patch, sounds like a preseason idea.
: Night and day in league :D
sounds like another moba game, that one doesnt do too well if I remember...
: I don't need a guide. I have played Wukong for years. Not to be rude, but it's different playing Wukong into bronze players vs gold+ players. I had an 80% win rate as I climbed from Iron 3 to Silver 4. Playing nothing but Wukong. I appreciate it though.

: How can I go about climbing the ranks to gold?
well, for jungle right now, vision, and constant pinging helps. try to keep drakes warded when up, same with herald, and when you get a kill lets say with the team, ping them to help with the drake or whatever is up. Basically, you have to move the team as a unit through proper vision and timings, and if they follow, great, if they don't wait. If a lane is feeding, focus on other lanes, and I dont mean completely ignore the feeding lane, just tell them to play safe for a while. Try different routes out, be creative with that, for example, I go red, scuttle, gank if i can, next scuttle, blue, gromp etc etc. Figure out what works for you. Another tip, when a laner recalls, like, lets say mid, if the wave isnt pushed when hes at base, push the wave, hard push it, so it bounces back to him by the time he walks back to lane. Scuttles are high priority for vision, simple. Control ward first drake, get whatever drakes you can, all of them are good, the small buffs can make a big change, even if its not noticable. Help laner get towers when you can, like, lets say enemy top laner recalls, and you are near toplane, and lane is almost being pushed into enemy tower, go chip that tower if possible. Convert kills into objectives, you guys just killed enemy midlaner??? start herald or drake with numbers advantage of 4v5. ping ping ping. Never flame teammates, try to emote a lot to show you're chill, ask how they are in pregame lobby to get the good convos going, get the team communicating. Never flame. Ever. Try to be supportive with words. PRAISE your team when they do something good, it boosts their confidence and play. When they do bad, dont call them out, just say oh well, no problem, dont worry, etc. Wards are important as I already said, ask teammates to ward areas like rivers when you are opposite side of map. idk what else to say. try to get the team moving as a unit is what I usually do.
: Tip? Just dont play x champ because they are bad
I played a lot of wukong s8 and pre season 9, and know what? I skipped caring about early and mid game and made a whole late game rune page and build. So basically, I went conquerer, and for secondary gathering storm was a must, and for stat shards, pick whatever you want. Ingame, I basically mix and matched items to make him a teamfight hurricane. A gargoyles stoneplate for living. One of the tiamat items depending on how much tank or damage we need. one youmuus for speed. one deadmans if more speed is needed. Basically, I built depending on what was needed, while making him into a bruiser, and since I had conquerer, not too much damage was needed lategame, as long as I had the time to do damage, and with gathering storm kicking in nicely after 30 mins, it went really well. I could make a guide if you want.

: I guess I meant point A more in a, "people complain about him trolling by proxy and split pushing" more than I meant by amount of people that play him. (Also the last time I brought Singed up here, I got a lot of "Ugh no, he's too annoying and troll-y" responses, so I expected similar reactions now. Re: B, all of the yes. If nothing else though, I'd settle for his Q just being in anyway shape or form threatening to get hit by. Higher bases damages or a built-in MPen bonus like Darius gets for armor, or an inherent %HP that stacks with Lyandries or something.
they need to make him faster imo, give him a movement buff ability besides his R. let him gain speed while running away from enemies as a passive or something.
: The worst VGUs are the useless ones
I do not understand what you mean. A good nunu has great engage, cc and tank, and is a great jungler when it comes to clearing camps, and finishing the drake with a Q and smite, which is hard to beat with a single smite. Warwick is great at hunting down isolated targets, and yorick has one of the best split pushes in the entire game. Each of these 3 champions has a higher winrate than irelia, akali and swain as shown on champion.gg. I do not know what you mean my man. p.s. these are platinum plus winrates.

It didn't show in this game :( but I get an S- or better in nearly half my games now due to my newly learned superior farming tactics using a red card on the back three and then staggering the front minions while staggering between blue card and stacked deck. He has great wave management to freeze it exactly where he wants and he alters his build early based on his needs; armor, mr, double doran's, etc. I'll be spending some of my ban time watching him play more.

The main thing I believe many players have a trouble finding is their own style. Their are many things every player should perfect, such as cs, roaming, wave management and whatnot, but in terms of fighting and build paths, I believe each player should find what suits them perfectly, instead of building the most common items. And mind games during fighting are also a big part, learning to read your opponent. Add me on discord, my name is Abramagician#1846, I have something to give you.
: Why can't you guys balance the game to how it is supposed to be.
I feel as if riot is trying to balance the game. Although they did make a lot of mistakes, lately they have been nerfing items, champions and slowing down the game as well. The new jungler changes will make ganks weaker in a way, as junglers will be underleved, although one may argue this is killing the role, I believe its making the role more harder to play, as well timed ganks will be well recieved. The support claim you make is true, but the problem with that is that the supports being played are also champs that are able to go to solo lanes as well, meaning they do have the power to kill. I agree with your tank statement though, tanks are doing way too much damage, and not tanking enough, except for a select few, and that should be adressed. ADCS do do damage late game, they actually do a lot, just most players are bad at positioning and kiting. mages are broken rn, no doubt. and same goes for bruisers, bruisers need to be nerfed in speed and health regen, to make them tanky, but only for short bursts, and not long term fights like tanks.

: LMAO , so it's ok to be level 4 while lanes are hitting 6. Yea sure makes since. You are prob legit only player in the league community that feels riot knows what they are doing .
I feel as if riot did the right thing. It will slow games down a bit, and will increase teamwork in ganking. It may seem as if the jungler is being hit hard, but the jungles goal should be to get the laners ahead anyways. A jungle is like another support now basically, jungle provides well timed gank, does its cc or whatever, and then the laners, the main damagers shall execute.
: Rune pages for new players
I agree with this, rune pages are too expensive for any player who doesn't already own all the champs. They should be reduced in price, or we should be given atleast 3 rune pages to start off with.

: First Placement Match 2019
Don't give up, your rank isn't everything. Play to become a better player, and to have fun. Enjoy games, laugh at losses, and contemplate your wins. Instead of being angry when you lose, ask not what your team could've done to avoid that, ask what you could've done to make it less likely, even if the chance goes from a 100 percent loss chance to a 99, because that one percent matters, and gives hope.
: Conqueror is balanced. Change my mind
I believe conqueror is a good idea, but it needs to be nerfed. reduce the amount of true damage it does and the amount of AD the champ gains while using it, and it will be more fair imo. 20 percent is too much, makes tanks almost feel like they aren't tanks, well what about that, how funny. reduce the percent damage extravagantly, make it like, 1-5 percent somewhere instead, and increase the AD gained at higher levels, so that the damage gained is still great against non tanks, and tanks, but the true damage doesnt completely rip out everyone.

Interesting strat, but then you fall behind in lane experience and the enemy team effectively keeps their 3 solo players and pulls ahead if you don't press your early lane advantage and get that tower gold. In the case of bot lane, you better hope your labels are good, cause they will be camped more than likely since your jungler is top. Your strat is awesome in concept, but simply too easily toppled when put against the current meta. I say fuck the meta, but Riot makes it so hard to fuck it. It's like Glacial Augment Yi. You should be sticking to people and having better ganks, but taking that keystone gimp your damage and makes you useless mid to late game.
You make valid points, this current meta is after all a culmination of years of work, but for some reason, it still feels like their could be a better strategy. I think, if the game doesnt die, in the future we will have many types of set ups, resulting in a rock paper scissors of strategies. But this will only happen if the community decides to work together in being more creative and open to new ideas.
: Then you will likely have all five of your teammates visible on the map, allowing the enemy real jungler to attack any lane uncontested. This was a notable weakness to the funnel strat we all hated. It would also mean the farming for the would-be jungler and the laner he's with would take longer to farm and level since they would have to split everything in the lanes and the jungle up to ensure neither fall behind. It's simply more efficient for the fifth player to not get his farm from the lanes.

: It's harder to get into bronze than get out of it, and I'm not saying that to be mean. I wanted a bronze smurf to do the whole start from the bottom climb but it felt horrible trying to get there. I literally couldn't lose enough games unless I were to resort to outright trolling.
Its easy to get in there, just play placements like a total monkey XD.
: I agree. I started in late season 7, played and learned pretty much everything about the game and reached Level 80 in July of season 8. I played promos against people with shiny teal and gold borders and even asked my friends where to buy these borders lol ( yes I was such a noob ) now I know the whole ranked system inside and out. Went 0 - 10 and flamed my teams as I was placed Bronze 2 then dropped to Bronze 5 0 LP. I believed in ELO Hell for months, then one day out of nowhere I decided to queue up for the support role intentionally and won 24 games ( just ulting my team everytime there was a fight and for some reason the enemies would always throw ) in a row up to Bronze 1 75 LP on the night before the season ended.
solo queue is a weird version of league, in which every little micro game we play can be just ignored after one teamfight down in bronze.

: There's a difference between playing meta and hopping on a champ with **57% win rate** in the pre season when ranked is a mess then telling players to git gud because you hit silver 5 after 700 games of not being able to climb out of bronze last year. So you're meaning to tell me that you couldn't do it in 700 games last season (which ended just a couple weeks ago mind you) but you got one lucky streak playing a champ that is disgustingly OP in the preseason and thats grounds for telling bronze players to git gud?
Of course, aren't you higher elo players cut from the same cloth too? If you are here to tell me I'm wrong, go elsewhere, in this case, I am right while you are trying to say I'm just as bad, while in fact I tell them to get good, you are trying to shame me. Nice world eh?
