I got a check point after getting a 10-game chat restriction after a slip up on my part, took about 3 weeks, yes its slow, but it does work. I've learned being chatty and friendly helps, or play arams, easier to get honor there also

: ARAM - Queue Dodge Timer
I'd like this... trying to play aram usually means going through 4-5 last second dodges, taking up to 5-10 minutes just to get into an aram thats over in 15-20 minutes.

: [In-depth look into Varus] Can someone explain this to me?
I've been maining Varus a little this season, and yeah, he doesn't quite put up the same damage numbers as the crit ADCs, but his lane pressure/trading is one of the best right now, and his item power spikes let him snowball ahead of other ADCs if played correctly. Most of my games with him, I'm taking the bot tower first, taking dragon control, and rotating the power to mid lane to get that tower down also, all before the enemy bot lane has the items needed to counter act with me. So then using his very strong ult for safety and pick offs during rotations, it's a really strong overall pick. In Solo Queue its about constantly snowballing leads. in a 6 item vs 6 item fight, Varus is going to get shredded by most ADCs. But he provides more in a game sense rather than raw damage output. But with your mentioning, you're not putting out as much damage as a Malphite, are you utilizing his Passive/W correctly? 3 Auto's Q, 3 Autos, E, etc massively increase his damage output. He isn't an AA damage dealer. This has mostly been with the on hit build, but I've been finding luck with a kind of hybrid build in the mid-late game {{item:3006}} {{item:3124}} {{item:3153}} {{item:3085}} {{item:3031}} + whatever fits the game {{item:3139}} {{item:3036}} {{item:3033}} {{item:3156}} etc Though build wise, that is another strength of Varus which I really hope they don't take away from him with the mentioned, upcoming changes. He doesnt have a defined build. Hell, imaqtpie has been going Rageblade, Nashors, Deathcap, etc. Varus can adjust his build to however the game is progressing while other ADCs have a very cut and paste build.

: Conqueror wasant enough to bring tanks down from god tier.
Well in top lane, only 1 tank is in top 10 pick rate, mostly fighters using conqueror. Win rate, only has 2 tanks in the top 10.
: The new Rageblade
If you mean Jhin, thats already being addressed in 8.7 they stated. Basically its like the old vlad passive where AP would give HP but then the bonus HP gave AP back and repeated. They're removing this interaction for Jhin's Passive + Rageblade so they only affect each other once.

Its one of the backdraws to one for all, sometimes you don't feel like playing Ornn for the 5th time. Not an excuse for toxicity, but I can see someone being frustrated when getting stuck playing someone they don't want to in a "fun" mode. I kind of got bored of the mode again within 2-3 games.

I've been in the same shoes. Major fallacy with the "They started it, its the context" when that doesn't matter when both parties are wrong. I've been punishment free for nearing 6 months now, rarely have to mute anyone, don't get into confrontation, etc. The simplest way to avoid punishment is to know people, especially online are going to be frustrating, but its on you for how you react to it.

: Why am I ALWAYS first pick?
I'm sure its confirmation bias, but I have to agree, it feels like if I get Mid/Top, i get placed first or higher up in the draft than when I go ADC or Jungle. Like, put the solo lanes that are most affected by counter matchups towards the bottom.

Even with the most expensive combo of Boots + Hydra/Triforce, its 8333g, which is again, an issue with Fighter items being too expensive(ignoring strength of unique passives) and not being an issue with ADC items being too cheap.
: which toplaner build black cleaver into hydra? even fiora has for her most built item triforce
> [{quoted}](name=Je suis Rubick,realm=EUW,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=GQA3cIwI,comment-id=00000000,timestamp=2018-03-01T18:07:38.459+0000) > > which toplaner build black cleaver into hydra? > even fiora has for her most built item triforce Again, very generalized items. But if we swapped out hydra for triforce, it pushes the cost up ~250g, if you replace cleaver, it pushes the price up ~700g So if anything, Fighter/Bruiser items are just too expensive versus ADC items being too cheap. if I wasn't at work right now, and had more time in my break, I'd go through more specific builds for 2, 3, 6 item builds and see where the costs truly are an issue.
: One thing Meddler never addressed in his post about ADC
Top: {{item:3111}} or {{item:3047}} + {{item:3068}} {{item:3194}} = 6800g {{item:3047}} or {{item:3111}} + {{item:3071}} {{item:3074}} = 7600g Junglers: {{item:3047}} or {{item:3111}} + {{item:1413}} {{item:3193}} = 6100g {{item:3117}} + {{item:1412}} {{item:3071}} or {{item:3147}} = 6525gp(BC) or 6425g (Dusk) Mid: {{item:3020}} + {{item:3003}} or {{item:3285}} or {{item:3030}} + {{item:3165}} = 7100g(GLP) to 7400g(Ludens) ADCs {{item:3006}} + {{item:3031}} {{item:3087}} = 7100g {{item:3006}} + {{item:3124}} {{item:3085}} = 7300g Support {{item:3117}} + {{item:3401}} {{item:3092}} or {{item:3069}} + {{item:3190}} = 4900g (4600g with Ascended) _____________________ So obviously this is heavily generalized "two-item power spike" builds for roles and varies champion to champion. But are the ADC items REALLY that much cheaper than everyone else's items? As usual, the evidence supports to item/gold/power creep happening in the support role which just makes the ADCs appear to be busted
: With the mage item update, mages are FAR too tanky when building full damage.
HP =/= Tanky Only 2 solid mage items have actual defensive stats. - Armor = {{item:3157}} - MR = {{item:3102}} Giving mages 300-400 hp over 2-3 items isn't bad at all.

: Guys you can totally win a game that you lose in the early stages.
Standard Silver games, essentially. One team spikes ahead, won't communicate/doesn't know how to snowball a lead, gets caught out with high death timers, team that is down recovers gold deficit. I think the thing that tilts me the most these days is looking at a gold graph after the game, seeing we were up 5k+ and knowing I was begging us to group and push the lead and people went off to do their own thing. But yeah, this behavior can be exploited when down. Shit sucks.

I'm not saying that there isn't an issue. I DO agree that base damages for tanks is too high right now. Its pretty bad in bot lane and jungle also right now. Sejuani and J4 out dual any early game jungler while building straight tank. Tank supports rule bot lane right now. Alistar can 1/2hp the ADC with a single combo + aftershock, some take ignite for the level 2 free kill half the time. It's not a top lane issue, its a tank issue.

I try and play every role some each season to make sure I'm in my best spot for climbing each time, and I'll agree top lane feels bad, but I don't think its as bad as people make it out to be at this time.

If you've really played so much and still haven't gone up then it's most likely due to still engaging in at least mildly negative behavior and getting reported for it. Everyone has bad days, yes.

It can literally take as little as a single bad day to get a chat restriction. 2-3 games of valid reports is enough to trigger a 10-Game Chat Restriction . Taking 6+ months to get even a checkpoint at level 1 honor is a bit ridiculous. OP is definitely right that it feels bad. I got a 10-Game Penalty in around September of last year, 100s and 100s of games since that penalty has been lifted getting honor fairly frequently in games. I am now Checkpoint 1 of 3 towards Honor 2, 5 months later. It's a little steep.
: While the idea of voice chat may SEEM good, it actually isn't
It's only for premade groups. Basically Riot is implementing what people already do with Discord/Skype/TeamSpeak/ETC. I think its a bit redundant since all those tools exist and exist in better fashion, but its good a game to offer its own version as well.
: i'd rather get an auto loss than play support and win
Support is one of the most busted roles right now... Gold generation is out the ass, and has super cheap, highly gold efficient items that all have a really big impact on the game

: Advice for toplaning
I just ban Illaoi at the moment. The other 4 are manageable in their own way, but Illaoi is the most frustrating lane I think I've ever played against since release day Darius. But I've just gotten into playing Jax again and it is SO unfun to play Jax into Illaoi, everyone else I can deal with. Gnar is countered by Tabi + some MR, or someone who can all in on his mini. Nasus, take someone who doesnt rely on auto attacks and can bully the lane Maokai, annoying, but hes just gonna CC you a lot, you can free farm against him Not sure why Renekton is on your list, he is in a REALLY bad place right now as far as top laners go. As far as my playstyle goes, it depends on the matchup, if I can push it in, Ill shove in, go ward enemy jungle, get river control, watch for TP chances. If I'm losing or down, sometimes its just river control and don't fall too far behind, teleport to dragon fights, help jungler get Rift herald early if possible.

Escheton (EUW)
: Shutdown gold and botlane focus. Why adc scale up so early.
My biggest issue in trying to play top lane again is that the jungler can live in top lane for little to no consequence. Supports can babysit ADCs so easily that your own jungler can't make a play there normally unless they make 2-3 repeat ganks, so you can't punish the other top laner for playing badly. The moment you go in, theres the jungler. So then your own jungler has to baby sit you to prevent the other top laner from getting babysat. There is no 1v1'ing anymore, and while I can play with the team as well, it just makes the first 10-15 minutes of waiting to get a few items before teleporting to a team fight REALLY stale. Like you said, its better to not get kills and just farm in lane rather than try and abuse a lead.
: I think that ADCs wouldn't power spike at 2 items if Stattik Shiv couldn't crit
I'm kind of maining ADC this season, and I can see where you're coming from. But I think its just Zeal items in general. Barring Kog/Varus, right now the item rush is... {{item:3006}} + {{item:1038}} or{{item:3133}} + {{item:3087}} {{item:3094}} {{item:3085}} {{item:3046}} then getting {{item:3031}} after the zeal item. There is a pretty common theme here. The 2nd item gives Crit, Attack Speed, Movement Speed + a unique passive, none of which are weak. This build path is not bad for any crit ADC right now and doesn't cost that much gold. There's a Zeal item for every situation as ADC. We need more wave clear? {{item:3087}} I need to poke/siege? {{item:3094}} Are they trying to dive me? {{item:3046}} Team fighting a lot? {{item:3085}}
