: This surely will fix the game....
The problem isnt assassins not being able to one shot tanks, the problem is a tank that is full armored malphite still being able to one shot an adc. The problem is trying to assassinate an adc when shes got a 1k hp shield stacked on her from janna or lulu. The problem is THAT DAMN SCUTTLE IT TOO OP AND WE NEED TO GET RID OF ONE OF THEM SO THAT THEY WILL BOTH FIGHT FOR IT

Your first point made no sense so I moved on, maybe try explaining it in a scenario, and the whole idea that you can ban my champion is just asking for players to actually do that, which they do.

You'd still have "trolls" if you forced players to *not* ban teammates' hovered champs - I could be last pick, hover an OP champ, just so it doesn't get banned and the enemy gets it.

Clearly you do not play Lee at all. Lee sin is no longer even close to being meta and does not snowball as hard as others. Even a fed rammus is scarier than a lee sin.

: Climbing out of Bronze as a Mid Laner is impossible...
It is not impossible, because I have done it. If you check, at the beginning of this season I was placed in Bronze 5 with 0 LP. I did not want to play ranked any longer. I was the joke of league of legends, a bronze scrub, a chimp, a low life monkey. I was who imaQTpie referred to in his twitch streams. But after admitting i was bad and focusing on CSing and ignoring my team and hitting towers, I climbed to Silver 1 and failed my promos to gold twice, but im still grinding! Goodluck my dude.

Rioter Comments
: I fully agree with this post, and I love that you threw in an idea ( though it will need tuning) to go with it. I agree that lethality is a bit out of hand. If you get even slightly ahead you become a monster that punishes the enemy way too much later on. I don't believe it should be something removed entirely but possibly something that is tuned down. Definitely not like what they did with thunderlords when the new masteries came out where they just buff everything. Its not just rengar and khazix that should have it build into their kits. Lethality isnt purely for assassins, though that was the main intention. ADC's also need some form of lethality or armor pen in their set to deal with tanks later on. Though this is also just a throw in.
Its simply because the game is shifting more towards early game, riot is encouraging snowballing. That is why in Korea most champions that are used are EARLY game champions (junglers mostly), because they can get a lead and end the game early, which is the exact opposite in low elo. In low elo you are encouraged to use lategame champions, because no matter your KDA you can kill almost anyone (hello yasuo)
: Just because you don't get "perfect cs" does not mean you are doing anything wrong. While it is good to get as much cs as possible and don't miss what is available to you, there are very VERY few games where people actually get perfect cs. In terms of what you should do until you hit your powerspike, there's not really much you can do. You just have to play safe and get what cs you can.

Continue to auto attack him early on, but careful of minion aggro. Think of it like this, every time he goes for a minion, throw your ball. The second he gets his tornado (2nd Q), back away until he uses it. When he uses it, thats like 10 seconds he does not have an ult, so harass again!

Rioter Comments
: no champ is worthless. if u afk in lane you MAKE him worthless. he had multiple reasons to move but since hes a gp 1 trick he feels that nothing can be done and nothing is his fault. "play safe team let me afk farm for 25 minutes dont move from tower or else my laner gets u thanks !" is what they think will work.
Gangplanks laning phase is "okay" at best. Afk in lane is not always a bad thing, if i was 0/4 then farming is my best option. If im going even and my whole team fed, then teamfighting isnt a good idea, so my team needs to AFK farm. Early game gangplank brings almost nothing to the table. And if he is telling you to play safe, you probably wasnt winning lane to begin with. I have never been in a position where i told my FED team mates to play safe, unless at a disadvantage (2v3). So if you arent winning lane, he is right to play safe and farm. If you are fighting in the jungle next to him, and he doesnt help, then yes he is AFK farming. But just because he doesnt go mid to help you deal with your laner, doesnt mean hes wrong, it might mean he isnt a team player, but he isnt wrong.
: I'm sick of ranked
Even the pros that smurf in low elo, usually duo to get out of low elo. Not that they cant do it alone, but they usually duo so thats one less chance of getting a feeder/monkey. Duo helps.
: so dont fucking play him in solo queue and fuck your team over? why put ur team behind for 25 minutes as they try to play against your lane for you when you're just jerking off? also its not hard to roam much less take tp/ ulti to save teammates. most of them dont even try. they just sit in lane cut out the portraits of their teammates and go ham and farm and thn complain when they lose. like??????? do something first? be a teammate before u complain???
Gangplank is worthless early game. He is almost a melee ADC. His damage lategame, and the amount of team fight damage he has is incredible. So most gangplanks farm up until trinity force, because then he can farm properly and clear wave, to split push. Then after he gets trinity, he continues to split because unlike other split pushers (tryndamere, zed), he can split push and still have influence of the team fight with his ultimate. But of course thats for solo Q, when split pushing is almost necessary to carry. The champion itself is a team fight monster, who groups most of the time. Also his Ultimate at level 6 is almost always dedicated to KS, as it does almost no damage because its passive isnt upgraded. And if he is AFK farming top, i can guarantee you the enemy top laner is there as well (unless they just give him their tower), and if you cant handle a 4v4 with a gp ult, you probably are doing something wrong as well.

: Pretty solid advice. If everyone made an effort to not die and make smarter trades/fights then games would be alot better at all Elos. I had a 0/0/5 {{champion:13}} in one of my games last night 26 minutes in... I was so happy! He was farming, playing smart and not feeding! This especially true for people who can't/aren't playing Champs who can carry and doubly especially of another lane is popping off. Just don't die, let them carry. If your top lane pops off and goes 6/1 and starts to snowball a lead then you just fucked yourself and your team by going 1/4 and negating everything they did when literally all you had to do was farm and wait till 13 minutes into the game for the lane phase to end and them to roam and help you out. Instead your lane is fed and now it's a struggle rather than a stomp. Don't die, farm better, punish deaths with objectives, climb. It's that simple.
I can't tell you how many times we will have a mid laner who is really fed, a botlane who is feeding, and I will be top 0/0/0 with more cs than my laner, and I will tell our botlane to farm and stop fighting so they can catch up and of course they start flaming me. "I don't know why you are acting like you are doing so good, you dont even have a kill". But im winning lane and I didnt feed so I did my job....
: No it doesnt. Welcome to solo-q where 10 morons are put together in the summoner's rift to fight and drool to the death. This is not the lcs. The lcs is a whole different story every person is capable of farming and playing safe,but that's a whole different story in soloq. Also in soloq(as you have noticed,since your bronze) your teammates aren't "in" on your strategy to not die for them it's run it down the lane and keep dying until they die or run it down the lane and keep killing them until they die. welcome to low elo {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
So how to smurfs get out so easily, they win lane and then they roam right? I do this and it doesnt work as well (but duh i am bronze), what is it that they are doing?
