You don't get alot of silvers that were silver. They were pretty much all dropped to bronze or silver V. Everyone drops because of the soft reset.
Kivolan (NA)
: Cho QoL Changes
The W doesn't extend further than the tooltip suggests. What matters is where the target is when you use the skill, not when the animation of the skill goes off. That's how it should be imo...that or get rid of the root and the ridiculous delay on the skill and let him use it on the move.
: How You Should Really Be Placed
You lost...you can't have done that well. :p Doing well is about more than just your KDA.
: I think it's pretty cool that ADC can now jungle
There are quite a few AP champs or mages who can jungle effectively, or at least semi-effectively.
: The KDA needs to go, its 2016
You can already see the tier of the bounty you'll get from killing opposing players (and for your teammates). It's displayed next to the health bar.

No. Your teammates should be able to ban anything they want to so your team has the best chance of winning the game.
: Unless you're 100% sure that you won't get invaded and that your team won't need much help, Runic Echoes. Otherwise, Devourer. But why the hell are you taking Azir jungle in the first place? He offers nothing early game, especially pre-6, and other junglers would just see you as not even there and consider everything their jungle. He's got virtually no kill pressure outside of lanes early on, so if you get invaded by pretty much anyone, you're screwed. You do you, and kudos if you make it work, but Azir is hard enough as it is. I'd stick to just laning.

: can you place higher than plat 1?
If he wins all ten games, he'll probably be in Silver 2-4. I don't think you can place higher than Plat 1 though, which is where all the challenger/master people should end up.

I didn't play ranked in season five, but I came back to the game in pre-season. Had a bunch of afkers during my placements and went 3-7. I was placed into silver V, played a bit more ranked, got up to silver IV. Then the reset happens. I go 7-3 this time and get placed into Bronze IV. I'm kind of thinking that maybe I shouldn't have played during the pre-season and then I might have gotten a higher placement. =D
algolsol (NA)
: Preliminaries are fun
I should just note that your MMR is likely higher than your division, so you should climb pretty quickly. :) I got 33 LP for my first win after provisionals. I'm putting my faith in OP.gg "You're likely to rise 2 divisions! Cheer up!" Trying to be cheery!
algolsol (NA)

Pretty much the same for everyone =D And you can do it all over again when the solo queue comes out. ;)
Envy Sin (NA)
: And the ragers are back
I've found the old queue refreshing. People work together to ensure everyone has a role they can live with and they actually talk to each other. It's been a nice change from the dynamic queue which is quiet as a grave.
: Okay, how does ranked actually work riot....
A soft reset essentially reduces everyone's MMR by X amount. A hard reset would entirely negate your MMR from last season and you'd start fresh. So when you're winning your placement games, you have to remember that you're starting with a soft-reset MMR, so even if you win all of your games, you may not gain enough MMR to be placed in the league you were in last season. But if you keep winning, you should move back up there pretty quickly.

There's nothing inherently wrong with that at lower elos afaik. If both players buy pinks (which they should), you can adequately ward with the pinks and both of your trinkets until you have a sightstone. A sightstone doesn't have to be the first thing you buy, but if it's not the first, it should definitely be the second. At higher elos, I think people roam around more, so you need more vision. Basically....if your opponents are moving around, prioritize vision. If you're being left alone in lane, you might get more use out of the extra health and the active from face of the mountain.
Hizouko (NA)
: How much can runes affect the game?
Many junglers cannot effectively clear without a rune page. Basically it works out like this: Marks: Usually 8.5 AD or 15.3% AS from marks. Seals: Usually 9 armor or 72 health Glyphs: Many junglers use either scaling MR or CDR, neither of which have a huge impact on their jungle but are useful for other reasons. Quints: This varies based on personal preference. It's not uncommon to see 13.5% AS (4.5% per quint), or 4.5% Movement Speed (1.5% per quint), or 6.75 AD (2.25 per quint), or a mixture of those three. I'd estimate that in many cases, you're looking at around 1000g in stats from your rune page. For instance if you have 29% attack speed and 9 armor from your marks, quints, and seals, that's about 905g worth of stats and doesn't take into account whatever glyphs you're using. Your masteries can further assist you in your jungling depending on what you choose. This is why I dislike the current state of the game for new players. They can't really learn how to play the current meta when they don't have masteries or good runes.

Aww man, there was one match I played where the other team didn't have any hard CC and I was Sion and I suicided most of their towers. Fun times.

Do you guys know how the placement system work? cause I went 9-1 in my placements last season and went to Silver V. Do you get placed to high rank if you have good kdr and more wins than loses or what? > > Also hows your placements going so far? :3 It's not a hard reset. It's a soft reset. So your placement is based both off of your MMR from the past season plus the results of your placement games. High MMR players, even if they lose most of their placement games will still have a high MMR and thus will get placed in higher leagues. Low MMR players, even if they win all of their placement games, still have low MMR and thus will get placed in bronze/silver.
: Ranked Teams - I'm Confused
Ranked teams are not coming back during Season 6, though I think Rito said they were looking at ways to integrate teams into the dynamic queue. I'd have to re-read Lyte's post, which I don't feel like doing atm. I don't really know how the dynamic queue works since I don't have any league friends, but the gold players may be able to invite both the plat and the silvers. If not, you're out of luck this season :(
: Maybe I am, but you must remember Ionian doesnt just give 10% CDR, it gives 10% summoner CDR as well, and they are cheaper than Sorc shoes by 300 gold.

The cheaper cost and 10% summoner spell cdr don't make up for the fact that the 10% CDR isn't useful on many AP champs either because they don't require the CDR, or because their other core items already provide them with the CDR that they do need.
: Are Berserker's Boots and Sorc too weak?
There's only one other item that gives you flat MPEN the way Sorc boots do afaik. Sorc boots are core on most mages. You're overvaluing the 10% CDR from Ionian relative to the flat Mpen from Sorc boots.

: Gosu tried to troll his team by picking ADC as a jungler
How was he trolling his team? What's wrong with Draven jungle? Did he actually try to take the ADCs spot or did he just pick an off-meta champion? There's nothing wrong with off-meta champions. You can play whatever champion you want in whatever role you want.
: "preview pick" reveals champ
Rito is aware. They're working on it.
: (Warning contains salt) Just got out of a game...
Anytime you feed a character 20k gold, he's going to be strong. Also, your team couldn't cs worth anything, so it's not surprising you guys got steamrolled. 30 minute game and only Lee broke 100.
Shukuchi (NA)
: Is Azir Worth Buying?
I bought him recently for fun. Still trying to figure out how to best use his kit, but it's really irritating how sometimes the soldier won't attack the target. Is there a range you have to be in to have the soldiers attack? Am I just clicking poorly? Having said all that, he's definitely fun due to the fact that he's just so different from most other champions.
Ludovico (EUW)
: Dynamic Queue THX! Now I can´t rank with my friends anymore!
Yeah, Riot posted a thread. There's no 5v5 ranked teams for the 2016 season. They're sticking with dynamic queue, but they will be introducing a new solo queue in a few weeks. However, end of season rewards will be greater for the dynamic queue than the solo queue. Edit: Oh and they're sticking with the locking in "feature" to encourage people to engage with their teammates before the game.

GigglesO (NA)
: Not trying to blame the non-premade
I'd be angrier that your shit four man pre-made didn't have anyone with smite and gave up first blood 1v1 to a Rengar less than 2 minutes into the game. How does that even happen....honestly? And why did you keep pushing your lane in that situation? You're probably the reason Sona died a couple of times early game to jungle ganks. Don't push without vision.
: The Lee Sin auto-locks (Blind pick)
Also, this one time I auto-locked Teemo right after I joined and this guy started raging at me. So I said, "CAPTAIN TEEMO ON DUTY" and he continued to rage at me and then threatened to dodge if no one else did....he dodged. The hilarious part is I play Teemo in all 5 positions, so when I want to play him, I just fill with him. =D
: The Lee Sin auto-locks (Blind pick)
Yeah man, even if you called something he wouldn't be able to see it. Honestly, I see little difference between auto-locking and spamming chat and claiming you should get the role because you were first. Frankly, I think it would be much more hilarious if everyone had to rush to auto-lock their champion before calling their role.
: How is it that every single game I've played on my offday, my team dies 10 times or more in < 10m?
That dynamic queue might be part of it if you seem to be going against well-coordinated teams. Otherwise, you could just be having some bad luck....or exaggerating the 0-10 bit. ;)
: can we have a level requirement on draft like we had on TB
Wasn't the old draft mode like that too? I think the only restriction was the 16 champions bit.

Base AP, or base AD. That's my point. > > Are you just fucking with me now? Mostly yeah :D Though it's always seemed weird to me though that AP champions don't gain more damaging auto attacks as they gain AP. After all, most of them shoot energy as their AA. Shouldn't they be able to shoot more damaging energy the more power they have? I understand the reason for it...it just doesn't make sense thematically.
: so this is my idea
So you don't want people to reach level 30 unless they play 100 games? Seems like a bad idea. Getting to level 30 is already enough of an unenjoyable grind. If Riot wants new players to be better at the game, it should give them masteries, runes and summoner spells right off the bat, so people can start learning how to play properly at level 1 instead of having to wait over 20 levels.
