: problem with champion select
> [{quoted}](name=itaiIKi,realm=EUNE,application-id=LqLKtMpN,discussion-id=JR8OvE8y,comment-id=,timestamp=2019-07-16T17:24:45.841+0000) > > Lately I have been getting a problem where after entering champion select the game won't let me to pick bans and it will continue to not letting me picking a champion. This is causing a forced dodge which make me lose quite a bit of lp and also have to wait the dodge timer. It is really frustrating so I hope it can be solved soon. I have had a problem starting today where my screen goes completely black after I try to join an Unranked/Draft Pick game - I can't even see the Champ Select screen, let alone try to select anything. This happened 3-4 times in a row, and I got a Dodge timer put on my account. I wonder if it's related?

: I kinda get where they are coming from (not the flaming/toxicity bit of course), not from the perspective of XP gains but more that I prefer when bot games go longer so i can get more practice in ... Anyway you gotta get used to muting or ignoring people, lot of haters on this game
I can see that perspective; the funny part of this game was that I was doing rather poorly in the game - no kills, 2 deaths, 4 assists and the lowest number of Minion kills. (they had Ranged champs, I had a Melee champ) The other two were just slaughtering the Bot - so if they wanted to get in practise... they were doing a pretty bad job of it. And yeah, I'm pretty much used to the abuse - this time was different because it didn't make any sense to me. "We've just won this game in less time than it took to load it, let's abuse the guy who pulled back last!". But as it seems that games need to go 7min before XP is given out, at least now I've got an idea what brought on the toxicity this time.
: The issue is because when a game is over *too* fast there's no XP gains. That time is, I believe, 7 minutes. Doesn't excuse their behavior, especially since they should have explained *why*, but it does explain it.
Ah. That does explain why they were annoyed. So games have to be longer than 7min, even in Bot games, for the games to give out XP. I'll remember that for the future.
: Fix your matchmaking
Not to mention the amount of abuse we get from some of those players. I might be willing to deal with being horribly abused in game if I wasn't being simultaneously crapped on in the chat because the Matchmaking Algorithm decided "Level 35, on a team with 4 Level 100+, vs a team of 5 100+? Yeah, this looks right."

: Low Elo Players in High Elo Placements
Being woefully new to LoL, I'm not sure if I'm experiencing something similar as I'm not daring to try to get into any kind of Ranked games. But after I hit Summoner Level 30 I suddenly found myself playing in SR games with Summoner level 100+, Summoners with 100k+ Points on individual champions, games where my skill level is massively below the skill level of others and quite often it's probably better for everyone on my team if I just quit the game instead of feeding the opponents. At level 29, I was cruising along as a Miss Fortune main, getting stats like 20/10/5 on a regular basis, winning about half the games. (not ALL my games were that good, but I was normally ending with noticeably more kills than deaths) Hit Level 30 and BAM! A good game is now something like 1/10/11, I'm spending 5 straight minutes in game standing at my turret waiting for the Minions to come to me so I can farm them because the moment I leave the safety I'm getting ganked by the Laner and the Jungler (who weren't in the lane for that 5min, but were in Mid and watching for me to leave my turret so they can come gank me), etc. Games are being won at about the same rate (slightly lower, but not massively lower), but I'm barely contributing to them. The best I can say I'm doing is that I'm annoying their Laners and Junglers by playing so passively, and I'm forcing them to farm Minions instead of ganking Champions. Yeah, I know I'm a newbie, and not all that skilled yet - but going from Level 29 to Level 30 was like falling off a cliff. It's like Riot was saying "Okay, you've had a few months of fun playing PvP, now it's time for you to go back to playing against Bots until you git gud enuf to play against real people again."
: So as the others have said, yes you can do it by using a MF champ shard or permanent However, what wasn't mentioned, is how you get those. Champ shards and permanents are an RNG based reward from champion capsules you get when you level up, and also occasionally come from chests. There is no guaranteed way to get a certain champ shard. Also, there is no mechanical benefit at all. It's entirely a bragging rights thing, that just turns the champ mastery emote from red, to purple, then to blue at level 7

There is no guaranteed way to get a certain champ shard. So the New Player champs I got when I first started (MF was one of them) I technically own without requiring the Permanent or Champ shard, are they different from Champs I pay Essence or RP for? As I said, I'm new to the game, and the guides are really... unclear on these issues. I thought I had to "own" a Champ to use it (beyond the Free Champs that rotate weekly), and owning a champ meant I had to have the Permanent or Champ shard, unlocked using Essence. (or Riot Points. Still unclear whether I need Essence to unlock Champs that I buy with RP since I don't have enough RP right now to buy a Champ I want to play) But as I never paid anything for MF (RP or Essence), is that why I have to pray to the Aspect of RNG to get an MF Permanent or Shard from a Capsule?
