: i still don't know why they not give a certain monster a 100% chance to drop an item, just which item is totally random. also: some items are too op and others far too weak. championwise i still wait for a glacial/stun nerf and a gnar nerf
The balance is all around trash, so many characters that are completely unplayable.
Barkley (NA)
: If someone gets 2 items early and goes on a win streak, just sandbag yourself and go for the loss streak economy while you wait for more items. Statistically, in later rounds he'll get less items and you'll get more -- which will put you on even footing item-wise. And he'll have done one of two things -- he will either have saved his money and rode his win streak the rest of the game, building up economy (in which case you're evenly matched and the better player can win through skill, and you've had this whole game to build specifically to counter him) Or he'll have foolishly spent his money in an effort to maintain his power advantage through the game and win by brute force -- in which case he probably isn't expecting the last-place guy to all of a sudden make a surge with a comp that beats his, and you win. This game is as much about how you play as it is how other people play, and item RNG is designed in such a way where if you don't get any items in one round, your chances of getting items in the next round are higher. So it tends to even out. And even if it doesn't and you're in the RARE instance where you get ZERO items all game long, and your opponents get 6-7 items, well.... shit happens, friend. Go next. This is statistically rare, and the only reason it sucks so much is recency bias. If you were to look at your last 10 games (oh wait, you can't! There's no match history) you would see that this just simply is not the case as often as you think. It is much more often the case that everyone ends the game with roughly equal items, because that is how the system is designed -- and its working as intended. I'm not saying its a GOOD system, I don't like it myself. I think everyone should get the same opportunity at items, with MAYBE ONE or TWO RNG items appearing in each game -- but that's not the point. The point is that the current system is not nearly as terrible as people make it out to be. Terrible? Yes. But not nearly as much as people want to believe. If we made a pie chart of all the reasons your win rate isn't quite as good as you'd expect it to be, item RNG would be a nearly negligible slice of that pie. There are other factors at play, here. And even some of those might not be your fault, either. Broken heroes. Broken items. Heroes standing around. Bad draw. Some comps are just plain weak. That sort of thing. But item RNG is a very, very small part of your win rate.
There is a decent amount of RNG. If someone gets a level 2 draven with, blood thirster, IE, and static you pretty much can't kill him. I'd say the game is atleast 60% RNG which still leaves plenty of room for skill but you can still just lose because you get shafted by luck.

You do have to keep in mind your winrate in gold isn't 55%, that's your overall MMR's probably judged from your current division and how you're preforming rather than overall, it'd be pretty screwed if it looked at Iron games to judge how you preform in gold no?
Which is true but in my entire climb since like silver I have always lost more LP than I have gained even though I kept climbing.

It's much easier to tell when x doesn't belong in the current elo than judging when someone's excelling - people who can climb easily will climb easily and are given that MMR push to get them to their correct rank - losing consistently says a lot more than winning more
I win more than I lose generally, I have a 55% winrate in ranked. I have never had positive LP gain though. Its always been 17 gained 18 lost. I have climbed from IRON 4 to Gold 1 this season so far.
Pyrosan (NA)
: 7/8 games recently you've lost, when your MMR drops below your LP then you're more suspect-able to being demoted, it's to counter-act boosted accs and players who dont belong in the elo mainly
Why does MMR drop so easily then. I have gone on 10 game winstreaks and only gained like 18 lp.

: No, it's confirmation bias here. On my climb from G2-D4 this season I won plenty of games that I would have had no chance to win.
Thats why I didn't say I could guess correct 100% of the time. I'll start writing down both teams combined win rates and then who won that game.
: I think you have a confirmation bias.
Perhaps. Regardless if your team has a combined winrate of 45% and then enemy team has a combined winrate of 55% you are statistically more likely to lose. Op.gg tells me that.
Pika Fox (NA)
: Thats just basic self fulfilling prophecy; if you assume youre going to lose, then youll play poorly and make yourself lose.
Possibly, but when I see the 30% winrate midlaner on your team with a 0% winrate on the champ they are playing and then they proceed to int and then afk... I mean doesn't matter much how well you did.

Probably because Riot is punishing you for coming back. Having someone reconnect is a huge plus for you team, people won't reconnect if they are going to lose LP any way.

I heard rumor that it was supposed to be 10 min grace period. Like that seems more fair, even though I think you shouldn't lose LP if you come back at all. I'm sorry I don't have a super computer that can Reboot and load league in 2 min flat. I had to wait for my power to come back which took roughly two min, and then I had to reboot my router and computer then log into league, which is slow on this shit client. 8 minutes is pretty fast IMO

His ultimate is similar to J4 or camille ult but is still slightly unique and again is interesting and looks cool. None of yummis abilities look interesting at all, her Q is an ugly little projectile, she has a shield, and her ultimate is just a lame sona ult with no dancing.

In all honesty I tilt and come on the boards to complain about shit match making and bad team mates too. In reality though a large portion of your games are directly affected by you. In order to climb you have to do well consistently every game (obviously you will have bad games). You have to roam and apply pressure. When I am playing top lane I like to stomp my laner and then ward the enemy jg, whenever I see the enemy jg going for his red I enter his jg and kill him. Bronze is really easy to climb out of you just have to play well. I feed alot because I tilt easily, you have to be careful of that.
