: pyke 'adc'?
Not even talking trash, but BBSM is right. I've been playing casually for about a year, now, and being casual I've naturally been in low elo the entire time. I've seen people make some pretty troll picks and wind up hard carrying just because the other team was even worse. I'd expect Pyke ADC to get utterly and completely stomped in Silver and up.

: How do you lane/counter against Nasus
Look to trade when he goes to get his Q stacks off your minions. Look up youtube videos on wave management/freezing to see how you can hold the wave in the middle or, better yet, closer to your turret (forcing him to overextend for Q stacks and leave himself open to ganks). Don't let him get swole by bullying you in lane phase and he's pretty tame mid/late game.

The problem with this would-be clever response is that the word Mercedes is Spanish in origin, not English. So knowledge of English doesn't explain why this unique Spanish word has three different pronunciations for the letter E, when more than 90% of the time vowels only have one pronunciation at all in the Latin-derived "romance languages" (these being, of course, French, Italian and Spanish). You're not very smart at all.

Only emote I ever use is the Mastery badge. Typically only when playing Shen, and only after I just turned a 2v1 or 3v1 gank against one of my laners into a double or triple kill FOR my laner. Just so the enemy players AND my laners know whose work that was. So yeah... I concur with the OP. I only ever do it to be toxic.

That's my team's fault. I don't know about building different support items based on team comp. I mean, I main support Shen and I can't see taking spellthief over relic shield to start. That being said, sometimes you have to literally tell people to build MR. Find a way to do it without flaming. For instance, against a Nocturne who was getting fed, I started building thornmail -and I told my team I was doing so, and why. Against a fed Veigar, I started building MR shit and I told my team I was doing so, and why. Lead by example sort of thing. Sometimes it works, sometimes :elohell: As a support, your vision score should be through the roof. In the game you screenshotted in your OP here, your vision score was 28. Kayle had a 33. Tsk tsk, m8. Once you complete your 500g mission on your support item and can start spamming wards, you need to back ASAP, swap to red trinket (which I saw you had in that game) to clear enemy wards, and be spamming wards yourself. You should never have wards available to you in general, but especially as a support. I would say it's your second most important job (the first is get your ADC fed). Vision control around baron and dragon especially in mid/late game is important. If you see dragon is spawning in 1 minute or less, you should be finding a way to get in there and place a ward in the pit, on the blast cone and in pixel brush or tribrush, plus sweeping for enemy wards. Same thing with Baron. If those objectives aren't spawning soon, then (if your team is ahead) you should be lighting up the enemy jungle with vision and denying vision to the enemy with your sweeper (or if your team is behind) you should be lighting up your side of the jungle so you know where the enemy is pathing and grouping. A 28 vision score in a 31 minute game is abysmal, mine would typically be in the high 40's/low 50's by that time (and I'm hardstuck bronze myself - for every game I win, I have a game with teammates like Lee Sin with 29 kills and only 548 damage to turrets).

Tennousu (NA)
: An argument of why not to revert Current Shen (and a defense of new Shen)
i started in S8 and so I've only ever played current Shen. I'm also M7 on him (my first and only M7 to date). Hardstuck bronze though, how did you climb with him? I find that I don't have the power with him to make bad teams win fights, no matter if I'm playing him Top lane or as a tank support. He's taught me some macro and a lot of map awareness, playing Support Shen has taught me vision control, but if my bronze teammates are determined to lose, I just can't turn a game around by myself with him. Due to that, I've started learning other Top laners like Illaoi and Darius, both of whom I've seen hard carry games despite an entire team of inters. Advice, OP?
: help me.
Talk to your parents about arranging for you to see a counsellor.
: As a new jungler (silver 4) this is just going to be a pain. I'm usually a level or two behind the solo laners most games and this is going to make that even worse. The literal one upside is maybe now my laners won't kill my mobs when they hit 6.
No, your teammates will still counterjungle you because they'll see you as even more useless now. Get ready for ADC always taking your krugs (blue side), midlane always taking your raptors, support always taking your blue (red side), and being constantly flamed by everyone for stealing XP in lane and taxing their waves and dying when you attempt to gank laners 3 levels above you.

: 5 tips for ADC mains from a (support) main
> When your support gives you a danger ping and they are far away from you in lane, it means you need to pull back. > So many times, my danger ping is ignored. I'll ping danger when they're overextending and I just saw enemy jungler on map nearby, or I saw midlane head our way, or when I'm out of mana and I see my ADC is itching to all in. Always they ignore the ping. Always they die. > When your support pings where they are going during lane phase, it means they want to ward an area and that you need to escort them so they can ward against ganks. Almost never does my ADC walk me to the river bush. 50/50 on if enemy bot pair collapses me or not. If playing against a Vayne/Blitz combo, I just accept the fact that I have to go through my tribrush to ward river bush through the wall (if red side), wasting all that time and losing all that xp. > try to get kills in lane, or at least have less deaths than kills, otherwise you'll find mid game your support will be no where near you. BIG facts. If my ADC has shit the bed, midgame will definitely find me attaching myself (and my Zeke's and Knight's Vow) to someone more successful. > if you supp pings an enemy stop farming CS and get ready to follow up with a kill. That feeling when you E-W-Q as Leona, and your ADC makes sure to get that last CS before running over to watch you die and now has to burn his flash & heal to survive (if they weren't already on CD from the last time he left your ass hanging in the wind). Then they flame you for being too passive. > Both partners have a right to ping in or deny it Of course. If I ping a target to let my ADC know I'm about to get it poppin, if he danger pings, I back right off. Maybe HE saw the enemy jungler on map, or mid coming down river, or is out of mana or whatever. But for the most part, as a support main I definitely agree with OP, I wish all ADCs (especially low elo, since higher elo probably already has better habits) would read this and take it to heart.
: Illoai is too freaking strong
Don't try to gank her if your laner can't get rid of her tentacles. If she E's one of you and R's, then she has 3 tentacles. Plus whatever tentacles were already there. Playing as Illaoi, I've had junglers come to gank me with the lane looking like a shrine to the kraken and that's an easy double kill for me. I've been successfully ganked when my opponent has been good about clearing my tentacles and abusing my poor mana regen (I can only run my combo a few times before I'm dry, your laner has to take advantage of that and bully an Illaoi).
: Champions are as good as the Players, Players are as good as their Ranked Solo Q
OP's right. Had a solo q bronze match last week where our jungle banned jax and demanded someone ban yi. Well, we all had our own bans in mind. So as soon as the enemy picks Yi jungle, this guy starts whining. From Champ select on until we won the game (despite fed Yi), he just never shut the fuck up about how OP Yi is and how we were guaranteed to lose. We kept trying to tell him, bro we're all bronze down here, nobody's good, just try not to feed him any more than you have to lol

Thing is, Leona has no damage or wave clear to speak of. She'll probably be my 2nd M7 (Shen was my first), and I gotta tell ya, whether I die or not as Leona depends entirely on the rest of my team following up, not my CC contribution.
