: * I agree with everything said hear except calling Annie{{champion:1}} a support champion, she isn't support she's just played as one because she can stun anybody once every 4 moves. The reason support is the least played role is because all anybody wants (the majority anyways) is kills so there k/d/a looks good. Not to mention as a support you are constantly harassed for doing even one thing wrong and when you do something right all the credit goes to your adc. Also in teamfights if you get just 1 kill, 1 KILL, and you didn't even mean to your whole team will yell at you for kill stealing.

I've never experienced this. Assuming you win I dont think anyone cares who or what got the kill. I think teammates are more salty when the suport takes the kill in laning phase.

: Champion Mastery is so damn broken
What was your CS though. That's an important thing too, because there is no easy way to differentiate a Lulu top and a Lulu support. I think if you would have had 20-40 CS you would have gotten an S. Its not hard to sneak CS when your ADC is out of lane/dead.

: Banned for No Reason - RIOT Support please help
Using scripts doesn't guarantee wins. A friend of mine used a Blitzcrank one in a 5v5 with friends and still lost.
: What drake is best to get as first drake, say about 5-7 minutes into the game
Cloud dragon is always, 100% of the time the BEST dragon to get. No matter what time, no matter what it costs you and your team. If they ace you-- Oh well you got the Cloud Dragon. You Gotta Go Fast, Faster than Sonic, Faster than the Flash. If you can transcend speed then every game is yours. {{summoner:2}}
: RGM, IP, and tons of damage in Ask Riot
Hey Riot, when do you think the season will end? I don't expect an exact date, but a month would be nice :-D Thanks!

: 1: Report all three of them. If you can't handle bad luck screwing you over then you shouldn't queue up for ARAM. Bad picks is not an excuse to afk. 2: ARAM is absolutely, 100% about mindless fighting. That was literally the entire goal of the people who first created the game mode. Removing the need to own the champ is something that should happen, but weighting the odds of certain champs or classes of champs to ensure balance should not. Especially now that snowballs exist so a team of immobile melee champions can actually win against the dream poke comp with a snowball causing a hard engage.

: ARAM needs some potential changes, yes, but for the most part it is fine. As you said, and have people in the comments, the largest problem is that people are too quick to give up. And most of that is because of team comps but a lot of that is because of (also) what almost everyone said in the comments, no one takes ARAM seriously. A game mode is a game mode and regardless of the rules, situation, or even potential levels of unfairness, it should be taken no less seriously than something such as Summoner's Rift. But because no one takes it seriously (most not even enough in the sense of wanting to win from my experiences), the game mode will forever be at a stand still. What needs to happen is that something needs to be done to increase the level of seriousness of ARAM because, like you, I honestly agree there is a form and strategy to ARAM. Regardless of champions, regardless of comps, the right type of play will win the game no matter what. I have carried ARAM games to victory for my team as a champ like Janna multiple times even though we had been at a disadvantage and losing from start. Perhaps not so much as you said, but ARAM is comparable to Rift in the sense of late game team fights. There are generally certain things you do and don't do. Kat is really fun in ARAM, but should you go 1v5 just cause it's ARAM and your Kat? No but yet you see it happen so often because there is that lack of seriousness in ARAM. Basically though, that is my view on the matter. It doesn't say too much but addresses my point. That and I have paused typing this like, 5 times and my thoughts are really scattered. But until that lack of seriousness is addressed, ARAM won't get any better. And since the League community isn't going to mature into their big kid pants any time soon, ARAM is basically screwed. Give it enough time and Riot will remove it like Dom.

Don't even utter that! I already had to lose my Hide and Seek don't jinx the beloved ARAM too! But more seriously: I think ARAM shouldn't be as serious as Summoners (Ranked), but shouldn't just be shrugged off like it's a Bot Game. I do think the league community is slowly maturing though. Perhaps I think that because I usually just play with friends these days, but I really have met some interesting and nice people as well. I dunno.
: ARAM needs three important changes made to it 1. If you dodge two ARAM games in the space of 24 hours, you are banned from the queue for at least a week 2. Every player gets 1 free reroll in champion select, afterwards they can use their saved up rerolls if they feel the need 3. Players can be given any champion in the game, regardless of whether they own it or not This would destroy ARAM smurfs, prevent people from dodging constantly because they didn't get Ziggs, and cut down drastically on the number of games that are decided in champ select due to poor RNG. Of course, this is ARAM we're talking about. We're more likely to see Lee Sin reworked into an AP support than get any of these changes implemented.

We're more likely to see Lee Sin reworked into an AP support than get any of these changes implemented. I honestly don't see why they don't give you full pool on ARAM. They really do limit "All Random" by it being solely with what you own, but then again... It does prevent someone from getting upset about having to play a completely foreign champion.
: It really sounds like the main problem that you have experienced in your examples is that people are babies and quitters. I don't mean to sum it up so bluntly but the beauty of ARAM is that the teams are RANDOM. What bugs me is that ARAM is not ranked, but people act like they are going to lose rank if they lose a game. Yeah, it can be frustrating to lose again, and again, and again, and again {{item:3070}}, ...... but I wish people would just look at the fact that there is no way to form a strong strategy when EVERYONE HAS A RANDOM CHAMPION, .. and just have fun with it.

I remember when I first began playing League I was so excited to get to level 30 and pay ranked ARAM. My friend just kept laughing at me, and I never knew why until I did hit level 30 {{item:3070}}
: I have 8 champs that i havent bought, which one should i buy
You shouldn't buy any of them, and instead challenge yourself to unlock them with Champion shards. {{item:3151}}

: Snowdown is coming!
I love all of this, but I don't get any RP until Christmas, so I miss out on this event so hard :') RIP I suppose. Huge shout-out to the team who put this together though. It looks amazingly thought out and this website is handsomely made. Happy Snowdown Riot <3 {{champion:34}} {{summoner:31}}

: Yea that could be nice, Also it could be nice if riot "promised" to give us the mystery champ today 7/1. Thanks riot for remembering
Don't be so impatient. This is a global thing. They have to get to Asia first, because their timezone is first. Na can expect theirs sometime tonight.
: I may be stuck in Silver 5
My first game in silver went a little like this... I main support, so I'm used to seeing a buttload of dumb-ass choices, whether it was by the ADC, Jungler, or even myself. But hats off to my jungler in that game. This post is to the brave {{champion:64}} who decided to solo dragon at level four, then flame and troll our mid {{champion:80}} for not ulting the dragon. Welcome to Silver Summoners! {{item:3151}} {{item:3070}}

This faxxity kid sounds like a freakin' nub. Report Plox. {{item:3070}} {{item:3070}}
: "OP" champions: Breakers of the Natural Law
I think you had a lot of valid points. it doesn't mean that some champions shouldn't be reworked so these laws aren't broken though. I think there are minor things riot could do to keep the balance and the character.
