: Why complain about nautilus so much instead of simply adapting your play style or playing a champion that doesn't get countered by him?

Because if we cannot play our favorite champs , we will be limited to 4 champs to play and thats boring

: How am I supposed to win ranked and gain MMR ?
opgg never lies: https://euw.op.gg/summoner/userName=Looking4LP+ you seem to play many champs and that's why you lose . stick to 1 role and 2 champs only and pratice with them in normals , then you can pick another role and two champs as well and do the same process again once you can play them well in normals , try ranked . the reason for this is because your main champ can be banned or picked . improve your micro and macro and watch some replays of your favorite champ , learn something from them.

the opgg never lies : https://na.op.gg/summoner/userName=Zunavin+ those items you built on garen are not useful . that's an old patch build , the new one is different. https://www.op.gg/champion/garen/statistics/top you also play nasus without experience , the outcome should not be surprising.
: 1) Grasp scales to HP, not AD, and requires 4 seconds to fully proc. It's not optimum for Alistar unless he's really fed and the opponents are really bad (what do you know? Iron/Bronze), and you are generally correct that Alistar should either take Guardian or Aftershock, but it's for different reasons. 2) In Low elos no one protects control wards, so honestly I understand the reluctance. We also have a limited gold income that literally cuts off now as supports, so it's not the best use to buy 7-10 control wards as a support. It's FAR better to just learn proper ward placement and conserve wards for those placements. 3) Sometimes long excursions from base DO encourage keeping traditional wards on top of the support item to simply move wards around or reward after a sweep has been cleared. 4) I have no problem with this advice, but I would caution: overspecializing makes you vulnerable to lane meta changes, and most people at your elos don't actually track their own per role performances, which often results in someone taking this advice taking the wrong role/wrong champions and specializing in them, often making them perform WORSE. 5) I see nothing wrong with his Soraka item picks. He generally gets an Ardent, and goes AP and gets boots; but I would caution he probably zones poorly.

He generally gets an Ardent, and goes AP and gets boots; but I would caution he probably zones poorly. 3) "In Low elos no one protects control wards" so according to you if you are iron , you should never buy control wards , what a "nice"way to "improve" as support. at minute 6:56 in game , a control ward appears. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCU0NysQEEY so are you telling me that because it is low elo we should play this bad and never buy control wards at the early stage of the game? are you telling me that just because you are in high elo you should just then play the game as it should be? you are so wrong my friend. 4) i have beaten with Sona a lot of meta champs , i have beaten aphelios, nautilus, thresh , pyke ,sett,soraka, nami etc. low elo players don't know how to play these champs correctly so i take advantage of that . i know of course if i get a higher rank i would have to change my playstyle and champs but still : there is even a dude who is challenger and he has beaten a lot of pros, people who play in the freaking LCS , with sona , he made some of these LCS players literally cry with Sona : https://euw.op.gg/summoner/userName=schuhbart and he has also beaten meta champs , this proves that it is not the champ but the player most of the time the real deal and in low elo , anything can happen. 5) how are twin shadows ,lunden and banshee going to help you to heal and support your team efficiently with soraka? in what ways building banshee first item can help you to support effciently? that's a very bad first item as support. do you even play support bro? and BTW i am not a bronze player entirely, i was silver in season 7 here in NA and former PLATINUM support in LAN , currently gold 4 : https://lan.op.gg/summoner/userName=benbaxter whereas you have been hardstuck in silver , unless of course this is your alt account which i don't know. https://na.op.gg/summoner/userName=Illabethe+ so dude ,before commenting something like this , get your facts right. i may be wrong about the runes and alistar because i don't play engagers too much but the support tips are right and correct.
: Couldn't they just set MMR milestones then? A big issue I see brought up by lots of people is how miserable and useless promo series are. So wouldnt having your rank change based on MMR make things go so much smoother?

Exactly , what's the point of winning all your matches if you are going to be placed in iron? like WTF?
: I really like League's matchmaking, placements say I'm bronze 4? Take a full Silver enemy team
: Which support champion can carry a bad adc
i think the problem is not the adc but you . i was iron 1 and now i'm bronze 2 with sona : https://na.op.gg/summoner/userName=benbaxter the opgg never lies . sure there will be bad adcs but you also need to work in your support skills because seriously you must : first : you don't buy control wards and place them strategically second : you pick grasp of the undying instead of aftershock , grasp is a rune which is useless on alistar since you need good physical damage to make it work and ali doesn't have that , he is a tank initator support , your mission as a tank support is to take hits and disable the enemy with your skills while your adc finish the enemy off . your chances of winning by picking the wrong runes are very low. third : you never switch your ward trinket to oracle lens once you have your targon wards to remove enemy wards and clear your jungle , baron, drake ,etc. fourth : you play many champs and different roles , stick to one champ and one role to climb , practice with that champion in normals and then try ranked. fifth : your itemization with soraka is wrong most of the time. as you can see , the problem is not the adc , you are the problem as well. for more info on how to build your champs check these websites : https://champion.gg/ https://www.op.gg/champion/statistics https://u.gg/lol/champions https://www.mobafire.com/ and watch some replays to watch some macro .
: No control of my solo que outcomes
you need to work on your macro.
: If you keep that win rate ratio you will be playing vs platinum players and later with diamond players. Your account doesnt have many games in Solo Q, your last rank was from season 7 with only 9 games, you didnt get ranked but your MMR probably was around silver rank. Now in this season your win game ratio is good and for accounts with few ranked games a win gives you a lot of MMR and a lose will make you lose a lot of MMR until the system start giving you about the same league points per win as you will lose by a defeat. If you where to stop ranked this season and start next year again you will be matched vs gold and silver players again. Just keep in mind that.

: DISGUSTING
you are recently playing sona with DH , if you don't know how to play that build , i suggest you go the support build , to make the DH build work you have to build mejai which you never did . you seem to die too much which makes me believe you make many bad plays and bad engages . Also you never buy control wards . so i think you need to work a lot in your supporting skills.

My only complaint would be the placement matches , they suck . what's the point of winning of all them if you will be placed in iron?
USMC2095 (NA)
: Season Placement
i don't know who had this amazing idea of placing former silver gold plat players in iron for playing better , it is stupid. i reall wanna know who was responsible for this. i think the dude who did this forgot that there are some people don't have a lot of time to play this game non stop and climb .
Dabbitz (NA)
: My ranked games vary drastically. anyone else?
i was iron 4 and now i'm bronze 4 , i was a former plat 4 support player in LAN . first things first your opgg: https://na.op.gg/summoner/userName=Dabbitz according to opgg , you play jungle and support but with different champs .do not do that , never . focus on one role and one champ which will become your main then you can focus on another champ in the same role in case your main gets banned or picked. shyvana is not good with press the attack , she is more like an skillshot champ not a dps one. so press the attack is useless on her. there is more , in this game exists two things: micro and macro micro is "the ability you have to use your individual champion and the extent to which you can use said ability to gain and press advantages in a game. Simply put, it's any and everything that has to do with how well you play your champion" examples: Your CS (or creep score) per minute Your ability to kite and orbwalk Your ability/efficiency at trading (timing and extent) Your ability to land skillshots Your kill/death ratio, specifically the amount of times you die in a game The way you use any summoner spell that isn't Teleport Clearing camps in the jungle macro is is more about the team, how well you play into it, and how well it executes in order to meet its goals,objectives. examples : A jungler camping a top laner who does not have Teleport in order to massively set him behind early Ending the game instead of going for that Baron that'll just stall the game out and potentially throw it Lane swaps trades Invades Where, when, and how you set and deny vision And the list goes on... for more info read this : http://team-dignitas.net/articles/blogs/League-of-Legends/11733/micro-vs.-macro-what-they-are-and-how-to-improve-on-both if you have a good micro but a terrible macro then you won't climb . you need to have good micro and macro to climb . besides this you also need to learn itemization - picking the right runes and build the right items to have a high chance to win with your champ , damage calculation ,etc. for more info on how you should build your champs check these websites: https://www.op.gg/l=es https://www.probuilds.net/ https://champion.gg/ i would advise you to play more normal games or draft games with only one role and champ and then procceed to try another champ and another with another champ just in case , but never stop playing your main.

: Is it just me or is adc really weak in the meta?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qcj-5F0ZVk it's not that they are useless , just hard to play and understand .i was plat 4 support in another server and right now i'm in low elo here and let me tell you something , many low elo adcs don't know how to trade , cs , space , etc , they don't understand the concepts of macro ,damage calculation, level advantage , etc. you just go for kills and not for objectives. aphelios is OP when a good player plays him , i have seen many aphelios losing matches against low tier adcs like ashe , xayah and some others.
: Placements need to go, match making is terrible.
Why do we have to start from iron? what is the logic behind that? what is the idea behind that? Corejj a challenger support won all his placements with a new account and he was placed in iron 1 ! and i was placed in iron 1 too even though i lost 3 matches (it wouldn't have made any difference if i have won all of my placement matches ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFt4VTx-AOU just why riot?
: Why I quit League of Legends
I just play 3 or 4 ranked games and then get back to work . you need to understand your limits and know your weaknesses. when there are responsibilities involved ,you cannot keep playing this game for hours and hours . and also i try different things like drawing or playing an instrument.
: Ok honestly Gold 3 feels awful
it gets even worse at high ranks
: If you're not going to play with your team, please don't play at all.
: You know adc, even after every "trash" word you called me, every gank you ever blamed on me...
don't forget when your adc tristana goes full rambo to die in stupid engages XD
: You aren’t allowed to have a bad game in league of legends
your team mates were so bad that they lost to a soraka sona bot. your jungler kindred was a main mid katarina with 0 experience in the jungle and the enemy team had a winning streak elisse . Of course you had no chance with such jungler in your team . they had no reason to complain to be honest.

the problem is , some people don't have too much time to spend on LoL , like me for example.

just mute the troll and report him .
