: Honor level 0 seems like i am getting no progress so i'm wondering.
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.

: why is there so much toxicity in one for all of all possible gamemodes?
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. Only finished the missions across my accounts for the rewards and thats it.

I got my win rate mid up to 87% and was at a 70% win rate with Kayle. Consistently getting competent summoners on my team, not people that carry hard but simply play correctly. Once I carry a handful of games I start getting horrible team mates for an incredibly long streak. So would something exist in their que settings that would involve: Player A win rate% > 60% then group with Players B,C,D,E, whose win rate % < 30%.????? Because I have observed this as fact. I swear this is how it must work. Anytime I go on a winstreak paired with average or competent teammates, I notice the game will start filling my team with the most pants on head retarded players possible as a challenge to try carrying this whole game 1vs9. They're like: I see you've won your last 10 games. I dare you to carry this one. Ziggs jungle. Yi support. Botlane feeding 10 kills in the first 10 minutes.

I've been having obnoxious bouts of this also. I play a really solid ADC, been like a 65% win rate on it, but then after like a 5-6 game win streak, Ill get support players that no joke, dont place a single ward within 20 minutes, or my last game where mid and jungle combined to give an enemy olaf 4 kills in like the first 5 minutes, so despite taking the bot turret in ~8 minutes, we were still down 2k from the get go. Its win streaks or loss streaks, nothing competitive.

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.

I mean, I believe she's already on the list of getting reworked, but "one of the oldest in the game" isn't really a valid reason for an A-Z change up. Plenty of original characters have gone through the game with minor changes to their kits over time. Plus a lot of her artwork has already been updated.

Cait and Xayah are probably your best bet for late game ADC, super damage carries if you're talking about that role specifically.

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.

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.

Kayasto (NA)
: Vision and support nerfs
They're making early game champs more viable, which is a good thing. Even as someone who loves to keep vision as much as possible and has started to play support again, there is too much easy access vision in the game which gives free laning to champions who are suppose to have a weakness in the early game which leads to SoloQ and Competitive games turning into low interaction games for the first 15 minutes.
: 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.
