: You deserve a permaban if you first time champions in ranked.
thats never gon happen cus rito wants smurfs, more accounts, more dough
: What's the actual issue of playing support?
Once you get enough pats on the back from various friends and random players, you will no longer care when the adc, or any other team mate, flames you. You do you, you're a main support for a reason. Let em meme all they want. It takes seeing a few bad supports, and playing a few games on a few champs to appreciate this role, so ofc they are inexperienced to begin with, it's a waste of time to listen to that crap. I can make an adc's life so easy and get em so fed, that it is really up to them to either be a potato, or take whats been given to em and win the game with it. My major flaw rn is thinking i can teach people how to adc in 20minutes and that's not happening, so I have to learn to choose better when to stay and when to go. And ofc mute early, everyone should! {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
: I Keep Being Abandoned By Supports
i played both adc and support, still in low elo, and i feel ya. I also agree with most of the stuff thats been said here, there are v good reasons for a support to leave their adc. the most important thing for u to do at that point is to keep your cool. ive seen some supports do stuff like: leona missing a skill shot and still going all in to fight to prove a point, only to end up dying and blaming the adc for not going all in with a half assed initiation on full hp enemies. then leaving bot ofc! if they leave when it's their fault, or what u did is insignificant but they have a short fuse..., all u can do is KEEP COOL, try ur best to not feed. You can even ask to switch and someone else can duo with the support instead. only you know if it was a streak of bad luck or it's actually smth on ur end to keep an eye out for. i can sometimes tell if a person is, well, lets not say bad, but inexperienced like "lvl 37, idk what most champs do", that sort of thing :P sometimes it's easy to tell from the first minutes of the game, like during a leash. if jg for instance smites below 300, after their leash, seconds after we're gone so no reason to fear we were gonna steal it, they are a bad jgler imo (and they did continue to be terrible) for not smiting sooner or actually for smiting at all since most jglers nowadays dont smite when they have a leash :| it's small, but it gives away sooo much. an MF never pressing W to finish off a turret before enemy arrives. bad. both enemies bot are super aggro for 2 waves now and my adc doesnt touch them once but is behind cs as well, yea, it takes one death to leave that shit show. this is the low elo meta rn, theres no safe laning, get fed or lose to a fed enemy, because what is an objective? i feel floodgates been opened to 12 year olds again at the beginning of this season and some ppl just cant stop feeding. so if ur behind or simply even in 1 lane, u lost cus another lane got super fed. so u will see more abandonment than usual cus the support will try to get someone else fed if they cant get you fed.

I was just thinking about something similar to what you did to Ashe's E, but for supports' wards. It would work on team mates that used Scryer's Bloom, too. Rito pretty pls? Also, I would like added to the list of **pings **the number of _relic charges_ and _spellthief charges_, please.

: Sitting at the champ load in screen for 5 - 30mins before i can load into the game pretty amazing. This season only i’ve gotten Leaver queue (20min per 5) at least 6 times. From playing for 4 seasons this has been the laggiest and most bug ridden client. The only temporary fixes i’ve found are: -Using Hextech repair to force repatch -Disabling and re-enabling firewall access to certain league apps in control panel -Running as admin -(leaving client open close during game changes none) -(low spec mode on/off changes none) -(reinstalling didn’t seem to do anything) -(any router/modem changes do nothing) -(ethernet cable/wifi makes no difference) -(having no other programs running no diff) -This happens on PBE too but it’s usally laggier there anyways. (ping counter at bottom stays at zero during load in screen. Will occainsonly load in other players showing their percent loaded while my own shows zero.) (have submitted multiple tickets for help with no reply. thx rito) {{champion:17}} Hopefully we can get more client support than we do skins {{champion:32}}

Rioter Comments
: Riot wants less strategy and more fighting with lots of death. The reason is that they want to sell broadcasting rights, just like other professional sports. They already have a streaming deal with ESPN. In order to make the game more attractive for viewers, their goal is to shorten it and have more action, lots of fighting and death. What they don't realize is that in the process they are losing the game's niche. There are other games that do brainless fighting and lots of death much better.
then they can remove laning phase and add cdr, make it more aramly ahhaha

: Champion identity is being destroyed by upfront damage, decreased time to kill
to have Sona do dmg on par with everyone else, on SR and HA, is stupid. to have tanks like Mundo and Poppy do double the dmg as everyone else is, you guessed it, stupid. I thought the game went to shit when match making went to shit, but now game went to shit on a new level

What I don't see is: no one is sayin if you yourself don't feed like ever, there's more chances of the enemy getting a troll/inter. Statistically.... Have the boards changed for the better? Or is it cus the OP is not a bronzie?

Pants are dragon carried himself to #1 recently by abusing how OP Nunu can be in this early adc meta. But even then he only had a 58% winrate on him. I thought I saw data at one point that gave the average overall winrate of all challengers at 55%. Because they are playing against a lot of non challenger players.
k, if it is 55% and the avg bronze joe is 50, if I'm in between I should be in high gold or plat. again, it's who u win against, not how much u win, that determines that mmr (I still think 55% is low for challenger and am lookin for actual graphs and not posts, but can't find any recents) EDIT: maybe all this means the winrates gathered on SR cannot be applied to divisions in same way winrates are obtained on HA :P
Risen29 (NA)
: I did the math on it recently. An ARAM only account will win 55% of thier games. Might not sound like much, but spread that out over hundreds or thousands of games and thats probably a challenger level winrate.
probably not :) u need like a 70-80% winrate at challenger level my winrate on this acc with 43 champs, some pretty non aramy, is 52.467... and my aram mmr is at silver 2 plus: it's about who u win/lose against that determines mmr, not the winrate

Mute and move on. Normally that sort of behavior serves more to keep everyone else from snapping (especially useful if someone things, say, top is feeding when they're really just struggling, and you can get everyone on the same page), as someone dedicated to truly ruining the game will do so regardless of what you do.
u never know til u try it, right? so why try if there's a chance it blows up in ur face and make it worse and I tried defending a losing lane, and it rarely works, m8 :( or I just don't got the magic formula of words oh and I'll never forget this classic, back when Honor was introduced and wanted to get ahead and start off nice: "hi all <3" was replied to with "fuck u" LOL just bronze things
: The incentive to reform is the ability to keep the content, levels, and skins you have unlocked, as well as the ability to generally have a better gameplay experience if you learn how to keep toxicity down and keep up your team's spirits instead of adding to the fire. It is not an incentive that works for everyone, but it is an incentive.

: 60 seconds according the wiki, and I believe it is a flat 60 seconds because you want to hold them longer rather than shorter. http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Zoe/Abilities

: I've reported this bug for a few patches now. I kind of gave up on them fixing it. lol
Rioter Comments
Rioter Comments
: That is a 25% reduction in cooldown, which is massive. 60 seconds at max rank is a very low cooldown for an ability that is designed to guarantee a kill, and effectively means Zed can use it multiple times before his victim even respawns in the game's later stages. The OP's claim was also specifically that Zed's ultimate cooldown was being reduced _to_ 60 seconds, not _by_ 60 seconds, so it may help to double check what you're replying to before insulting anyone else or their intelligence.
op also states fid's ult reduced BY a minute... that's why I kept readin cus that will never make sense
Canonic (NA)
: I don't understand why you care. I mean I know it's not right, but report them and play the game.... you're playing bots ffs
because there already is a game mode that places u WITH bots against bots, and that's not what the player chose. Moreover, lol bots are not the same as xp/BE farm bots. These farm bots are way worse and feed their asses off. You can carry lol bots easily, but not these guys, nop. So, say you have 15-20m to spare today and only want to get the first win of the day bonus BE by playing a sure win against bots. You're fucked.

And when I go to at least 2 other lol profile sites, I get at least 2 other MMRs. No one but Riot knows our MMR. Seriously. EDIT: I remember one day I was ranging from smth like Bronze 5 to Gold X. Ha. Haha...
Eedat (NA)
: > I assume > I assume > I assume You can't make a study and then just assume half the parameters. Like stated, your study is pretty much 100% completely worthless
They're forming the basis of a supposition. Also, they're not saying their MMR is 1200, it's just an example. Unless I'm misreading both your posts, just take it down a notch, please.
: Basical all of that is invalid without the enemy teams info Also matchmaking is done by MMR (I may be wrong but I thought they had changed MMR so that it included other factors now) so why wpuld you not use that instead of winrate?
: Wrong rune page used.
I made a habit of selecting smth else then back to what I wanted. pls fixxx
: We are not the LCS
IF this goes through, what I hope to see is team mates actually pushing with the buff instead of being baited into a 3v5 or smth and losing their buff for no reason.
Condor (NA)
: AutoFill is redundant and here is why.
Was gonna make a post about smth I've been trying, might as well reply here. Recently read a thread linking to a riot article about matchmaking and how the q works or used to work in 2009 http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=12029 and I focused on this paragraph to test if no3 still holds true, for selecting 2 roles: > The basic priorities of the system are in order: > 1) Protecting newbies from experienced players. > 2) Fairness & creating competitive matches > 3) Finding a match at all. The longer you wait, the less important priorities #1 and #2 are. What I did was stop the queue once it reached the avg time. Then re-q ofc. Since in ranked, mostly flex, I qd for support, I can def say was not autofilled - that rarely happens anyway so I can ignore those qs. In norms, however, I qd for top and support, and for like past 30 games or so I did not get autofilled once. With the autofill warning ON (which imo should not be there after q'ing for secondary support so many times, why did they change that UGH! but that's a diff story). Moreover, I never got support, either. Just top! So manually increasing q time does SEEM to guarantee you not only one of your preferred roles, aka no autofill, but also your FIRST preferred role. Will continue to try this in ranked with roles other than support :)
