: Whats the point in playing melee bruisers top anymore
I think you should try Garen or Dr Mundo in these match ups. As long as you dont get greedy for CS, you can freeze the lane and recover their damage while waiting for jungle pressure. And with Garen, you will feel oh so satisfied when you get to drop the giant fucking smite sword on them.

I fail to see how my old email provider suffering a mass hack and losing my encrypted password 100% on me. This hacker was using that information to take advantage of the password recovery on my game accounts (a process know as social engineering). The fact that steam has features in place to prevent that is what tipped me off. In fact, it was kind of hilarious when they tried to bypass the two factor by saying they lost the phone and when steam asked for ID they immediately closed the ticket. I reopened it to let them know that it was a attempt to take over my account.

Exactly why I stopped using that email address. Its two factor was bad.
: Two factor authentication is a scam for companies to get your cellphone number. Twitch added it and made it impossible to stream without giving them your cell number, youtube did it, steam does it. Why do you want a corporate entity to have your cellphone number? Or worse, sell you an authenticator for 14.99 like Square Enix did with FFXI. You want a secure password? Encrypt your keystrokes, there's a good program for that (it's 45 bucks for premium, keyscrambler. The freeware version isn't effective against 100% of keylogging but it'll still protect you from skiddies) and then use an encrypted password. You don't need to give amoral companies your information.

Pretty much everything in Sarah Conners outfit screams "badass" https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/8/81/Sarah_Connor_%28Linda_Hamilton%29.jpg/220px-Sarah_Connor_%28Linda_Hamilton%29.jpg She doesn't look too young and looks confident making her appear experienced. She is almost always armed, so she is ready to fight any time. The tank top adds some military flair to her emphasizing that she is a fighter. Sunglasses also tend to look just really badass. The only badass-design element in Kai'sa is that her model at least gives her face a serious impression and thats not even present in her comic. https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Xh3EXEblUwk/Wow1RaIWsJI/AAAAAAAA5Xo/PJlmkrx512AobwJB6oMEcuQkMietWhdrgCLcBGAs/s1600/collage.jpg Overall I don't think the problem would have been so big if she had looked sexy AND badass (sure there would have been some controversy, but thats mostly due to riot giving some false impressions about her lore before her release), but the problem is that Kai'sa looks mostly sexy.

I can always tell when I'm playing with players that remember how Baron used to be when I'm pinging an early baron after catching their jungler. They think itll execute us all but in reality it can easily be taken with the jungler and the adc with only two or three completed items. I usually play Amumu and just have to dodge the eruption tentacle thing. Wheres the Baron I used to AA while running through the baron bit to escape from someone to make sure they died if they followed me?

I personally started with Varus. He's got a forgiving kit that can allow you to poke even if you are behind. When you get good at him you can shred people with the stacks. These days I love playing Ashe and Jinx.
: There's gotta be something done about griefing
Maybe it's just the clips, but in the first one she's definitely trying to help you but also trying not to let herself get caught by their cc. You can see that {{champion:498}} is about to stun her if she keeps going forward and then {{champion:497}} jumps to her too. I would've personally be in rocket form the entire time while staying far away from that amount of CC trying to hit whatever I can. She would have died immediately if she kept going forward.

If I'm playing Jax or Warwick I can easily solo it while my laners put pressure on the base and force them to make a decision to contest me or let their base die. Jungle is always warded when I do this and I always make sure I can escape if I they make the choice to come for me. Half the time it's just surprise! We have baron now!

CS and vision score have a huge impact on this, as well as objective damage.
: Even if you are support main it should be easy. You should get your adc so far ahead in lane that it doesn't matter if they are good or not when they stat check everyone as you set up easy kills for them. You can also be a leader and actually organize your team to do quality rotations instead of the ARAM crap that always happens mid game in low ranks.

I also know that people can have varying degrees of epilepsy and to the line "Company shouldn't spend resources trying to cater to people with that severe of a disability" sounds like something that would be said about a business that doesn't have wheelchair access.
