: Xayah and Rakan Gifting Thread
Hi. This is the first I've seen double champions being released as I've only played since last August. Both champions are interesting so I'm anticipating my games when I playing against or with them. If I am gifted with one, I'd be more than happy. I'd be zealous and joyed. I'm not concentrating on champions as much as I'm learning the game but trying Xayah or Rakan would be fun. My summoner name is "Aeros Sine" on NA. Thanks for reading. :)

: Rakan and Xayah sound both fun and hard to play
I agree with your post. They both look exciting to play and I can see Xayah being a great ADC in her own right. I've never seen two champions being released at the same time so its a nice and invigorating experience that I'm glad to witness. The anticipating lore behind them is interesting in itself. Two lovers who have been through thick and thin and enter the Fields of Justice together. Sounds fantastic. The champions gameplay wise look great with their unique abilities and stand out. Looking forward to playing against or with them. To be perfectly honest, I can't play them due to my lack of skills as a player so I'll just wait until then. Hope everyone enjoys them though! {{champion:103}} ( Was thinking of putting a catface but I wanted to put Ahri instead lol) Anyway, I appreciate your post and words on the subject. Nice post! {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
: **So how many weeks has it been since we've seen much of anything on the Support-being-underplayed and poorly-played issue?** {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}} I remain **very disappointed** we're back to no additional Supports; only 2 just **isn't enough** for good team compositions with the playerbase League of Legends has, _**ESPECIALLY WITH AUTOFILL ENABLED**_. While Brand and Blitzcrank were bad picks for the list, the rest of the list was pretty solid and made for better games IMO, especially {{champion:37}}Sona and {{champion:44}}Taric which are relatively new-player-friendly and _don't lend themselves to stealing CS_. While a full extra 10 isn't necessary, I think _**at least** 2-6 extra slots_ to provide a better variety of Supports and account for the **ever-increasing number of champions** is a really good idea that should be implemented **permanently**. I think simply fixing the # of champions in the free rotation at **10% rounding up** of the number of **total champions** would strike a good balance going forward. 14 for now with 6 of the slots dedicated to serious Supports, rising to 15 sometime in 2017-2018 when champion 141 comes out. Probably keeping the % of Support slots roughly proportional... around 3/8ths perhaps? Attention should probably be given to ensuring there's always a **tank** Support, a **heal**-ally Support, a strong **shield**-ally Support, and a **Crowd Control**-heavy Support (it usually won't take 4 champions to fill all these slots since there's a fair bit of overlap, such as with Morgana being strong in both CC and shielding,) and that at least 2 of the 6 Support champions are highly **new-player-friendly**. I believe this will strike a fair balance between consistently giving users _**enough options**_ to _play_ Support when they get **Autofilled** while _still selling Support champions_ to people who grow attached to them. That's the main reason I'm not suggesting keeping the rotation at 10 Supports long-term (though I'd be OK with that) - there aren't really enough Support champions to fulfill quite so many without severely devaluing buying any of them. That is something however that needs addressing itself - there need to be **more good Support champions** in the **next few** new champions released! I do definitely want to see the rotation **permanently raised** _at least_ a **little** from the previous 10 total to fit a **greater variety** of Support champions in and improve the average team comp. Either that or Autofill absolutely **needs to be turned off**, permanently, because attempting to force people to play Support when they'll just dodge because they have no good options handy and have no desire to spend IP/RP on buying any when they don't want to play Support in the first place is **CLEARLY NOT WORKING** and only further increases queue times due to dodges. The bottom-line is Riot needs to **encourage people to want to play Support**, not try to force them to. Autofill **does not work**, especially not without a lot of free Supports. Either the number of free Supports must be raised again or Autofill has **GOT** to go. At least some of the Supports should also be made available in Ranked unless Autofill is removed, too. **Sooner or later Riot's going to have to address these issues,** even though they decided to largely ignore it through the end of 2016. Remember, the rotation applies to Normal Draft Pick, where people practice and learn for Ranked, and which has assigned positions and Autofill.
Hi. :3 For the past few weeks or so, I've seen you around since probably the patch including permanent autofill. I read the message you are trying to convey to Riot, each time posted, thinking more fully on it. I'm a relatively new player, since last year in August, I've stuck to support. I only had the cheaper champs such as {{champion:16}} or {{champion:1}} so I played those and plus the f2p champions that were around. I grew fond of Soraka over time, even though I struggled constantly and still struggle today with support. I haven't really found a support that just "clicks", if you understand. Its primarily, "I need these skills, so I'm with you". {{champion:37}} is my current support as I am low in the skills I need to improve and she has the ones I need as a beginner to become better. It not fun per se, its just doing the role. A few more champions would be nice. Since I play support, I'm rarely autofilled. More support champs like {{champion:143}} would be good since she is at the high range of IP and will take a while to get, but reading your post, she leads herself to cs and for me, I don't know what I'm doing so maybe she isn't a good champ for me. Although, I'm not complaining. Just, commenting.
: Mid/Support sounds like it fits your champs more, with Marksman as a fallback. You can be aggressive as support, and often it's beneficial to be. Find a few champs you love to play, and just keep playing them. From time to time, try other champs. The Rotating Game Modes are a great time to try new champs, as they are generally taken less seriously. ARAM is another good place to learn and try new champs, but you can't choose which ones to try specifically.
Thanks for your post. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
: Just try different champions that are on free rotation. You never know who you might end up being really good with. Even if they're champs you don't think fit you well, playing them will help you learn more about them, and make you a better player.
Thanks for the advice. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
: Well, TIL I'm not an Ahri one trick because, while I play her a lot, I don't think I can see myself exclusively playing on her. However, I go by the 3 champs per role rule that was you won't be banned out. Also, Dong is right about the "you shouldn't major every champion," because it gets to be too much. I cannot possibly learn every single champion, so I just stick to the three I've played a lot {{champion:22}} {{champion:103}} {{champion:99}} and try to use the mechanics I learned from that to kind of fill in the gaps when playing other champions. For the most part though, stick to one or two you really enjoy playing and have at least some knowledge of how the other six you enjoy work. League is a team game, if you know how to play well with others, being the weakest link won't be as bad if there are stronger bonds.
Thank you for your post. I'll keep this in mind!{{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}

: If you like Annie & MF, best bet is to try and get good at the mid/AD/support roles. You can play Annie Mid & Support. Other champs that are somewhat similar to Annie you might enjoy: {{champion:45}} {{champion:99}} mid. {{champion:143}} {{champion:117}} support. You might like {{champion:127}} mid as well if you were trying the "Freljordian champions". Other ADCs you might like: {{champion:202}} {{champion:51}} Maybe you will like those, maybe not. Goal for you would be to find 2 or 3 champs you enjoy at each role and try and get good with them.
Thanks! {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}} I'll try that. I appreciate your post.

: you should main 3 champions for each role but you should know how to play every champion Also you played against bots until level 30 Sorry to tell you this but League of legends is survival of the fittest at the moment you are bronze5 level

: Extra free supports concludes + new free rotation
Actually, I'm very glad Riot put out the supports for four weeks. It gave me enough time to try out different supports to learn the role with. I ended up liking {{champion:143}} . She is an aggressive support which I actually enjoy. Thanks to the experiment that Riot put out, I got to meet a possible main for mid/support.Thanks Riot! {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
: I can imagine starting to play LOL now can be difficult. When I started there were just over 40 champs so it was easier to learn them all and their skills and then new champs when they were introduced. If you start now there are like roughly 500 different skills to see for the first time in game and i can imagine it would be overwhelming at first. If I were you I would start with learning one champ of each the following roles, AD carry, Support, Top. Try learning champs which have fewer skill shots and are not mechanically difficult to play. Ashe (since you have some experience with her) and Miss Fortune would be a good place to start with AD carries. Miss fortune makes last hitting minions extremely easy with her passive. I am going to assume that one of the reasons you are having issues against bots is because you are having issues acquiring gold to get items and are getting harassed or killed in lane. Last hitting minions properly will likely help you tons. Try going into a custom game alone, pick a lane and try to get 100cs in 11 min. Focus getting that last auto attack on the minions before they die. You can make it more difficult by not buying items or using skills. Learning to do this will make it much easier when you face a laning opponent, making you less reliant on getting kills to afford items early. Even in losing your lane you can still keep up in gold with your opponent and making you relevant to your team as the game continues. Creating a lead over your opponent in CS and using the advantage that it creates to afford items before your opponent will allow you to push objectives with your team or by yourself. Other than the above practice try watching some of the streamers on twitch and how they play the game and their thought process on decision making. I would recommend watching Valkrin, he is more mature and avoids the theatrics that some streamers have while explaining his decision making and why he is doing things as he plays. I think that it could be useful for someone like you. Hope some of this is of use to you
Thanks. I'll check out the streamer and continue to practice CSing as I'm currently am.

Nothing really. I don't have much of a life. I just go to school and come home. I have no hobbies.
: I remember when I was under level 20, I decided to try to play an Intermediate Bot game because I thought the Beginner Bots were becoming too easy. I proceeded to feed miserably against the Intermediate Bots to the point where my teammates told me to sit at base and not move so they could focus on winning the game. I was so embarrassed and ashamed, and I never wanted to play against real people because I couldn't even play against an Intermediate Bot. Even when I first start playing against real people, I'd get so nervous about going into queue. I didn't regularly play norms until after I hit level 30. Now I'm still nervous when I go to queue for ranked because I don't think I'm good enough, but my ranked anxiety is starting to tone down to more I get used to it. It's a long process to get more comfortable with the game. I personally "quit" this game about three times, with about a six month break in between each "quitting." As you force yourself to play more, you'll get more used to it and you'll naturally get better to the point where you feel more confident in your ability to play. Some people are just naturals at the game and they're superior to the majority of players--but otherwise the majority of players are just average at the game, and that's OK. At the end of the day, the only thing that really matters is if you're having fun playing the game. If you're not having fun, then maybe there's no point in playing.
To be honest, I'm not having fun. Though I don't like video games as I once thought, I don't find enjoyment in life itself. I primarily play and study for LoL due to habit.
