: I went PD on my Draven, had 4 glacials (Sej, Braum, Ashe, Voli), and guardian. Also place my ADCs towards the middle rather than the back. There were like 3 ppl going assassins and it worked really well down to the final person at 1 health. Then I lost... I think this works, its just whether or not the assassins get good itmes and how many are 3 stars there are can turn the tide. idk, def shud get a damage nerf to the comp

Which makes assassins ignore 50% of armor, super broken
: I took a several month break from this game and it's impossible to relearn it because it won't stop putting me against diamonds in normals too. And I can't play ranked with my friends so normals are my only option to enjoy anything, but the matchmaking rips any fun right out of my hands and says "no you can't try new Morde, you have to face a diamond Irelia as a gold player." Like fine guess I just won't fucking play. It really pisses me off since I'm actually trying to enjoy the game again but Riot is actively blocking me from doing so.

Do you play with friends that are higher elo? Thats the most plausible reason. I am gold but get matched against diamonds every game because I often queue with higher elo friends =/

: Unfair Chat restriction
I feel you. After 5 years of playing this game, I just got my first chat restriction for defending myself from trolls. My support got mad at me for some random reason at minute 1 into the game and proceeded to never lane and just follow our jungler around. The jungler supported the trolling and told my opponents to false report me. The worst I said was "I hope you get permabanned" / "if you're going to troll this game is over"/ "please report this sup and jg for trolling". Apparently these statements = bannable offense. I never cussed or said anything rude about anyone or their gameplay. I never expected those statements could result in a chat restriction, and worst of all, honor demotion. I linked my friends the chat log and none of them support the ban to be fair. In the future we will just have to mute and never defend ourselves I guess. It sucks the lesson had to be learned this way. And also, having your honor level demoted to 0 after first chat restriction is too harsh imo. Like if I had been given a chat restriction without honor demotion I would already learnt my lesson to never argue or defend myself in chat and just mute. But now it feels even worse. People that get their first chat restriction due to toxic trolls, in the real world, equate to people that face criminal charges for self defense. It just doesn't feel right or fair. Who knows how long it will take to get back to honor level 2.
: Why support mains are disagreeing and why the support role is suffering
I think the reason why there are so many disagreements on how supports should be played is how sefishly people play league. Playing support requires one to play very selflessly, using their gold to build items that make the team stronger instead of making themselves stronger, and sometimes even sacrifice their KDA to protect a teammate. People who play ranked often have a mentality that they have to be the ones to carry their "noob" team, which probably stems from solo queue and not trusting teammates. This can be shown through how people play selfishly by fighting over creep gold, buffs, etc. And oftentimes, even supports try to be the "support carry" for the team, which is actually not the optimal goal for a support. Playing support requires one to put a lot of trust in his/her teammates, trusting that if he/she protects teammates by providing most of the map vision and building items that protect the team, then the teammates can use their gold properly and perform well. However, most people want to rely on themselves to "carry" to win a game. Kind of deviating from the main topic: I noticed was that many do not realize the importance of map vision. I was placed in Bronze 4 at the start of season 6, and climbed to silver 3 thus far, and noticed that hardly anyone in bronze cared to buy a vision wards, whether it be the support or other roles. In silver elo, I noticed more teammates buying vision wards, but still on more rare occurances. This led me to conclude that people in general play league very selfishly, and think they "need" to save the 75 gold for damaging items rather than map vision, and that they have to be the one to carry. Watching any LCS match, one will immediately notice that map vision is highly prioritized(junglers even buy sightstone), so I wonder why map vision is not prioritized in solo queue :c

: 8 wins 2 losses and yet it still places me in bronze 5 WHY RIOT?
It's okay! I ended in Silver 5 season 5, went 5-5 in placements and got placed in bronze 4, basically bronze 5! :P It has to do with Riot's reset, there's some formula for how MMR is calculated. I climbed to Silver 3 today though! :)
