: does TFT have any impact of honor level?
As far as I know, not really. I know the upcoming patch is going to stabilize the post game interface in which I would believe there to be a report option. If anything I think there's a possibility to lose honor thru TFT but not gain it yet.

: Why do coaches do pick/ban instead of analysts?
In some ways head coaches act as analysts in their own right. They'll work alongside their staff of analysts or strategic coaches and formulate proper or developing means to success. However, the head coach tends to have better reign over how the team can work cohesively through their strengths and weaknesses as individual players which tends to be more desirable of on stage experience than having a drafting coach or analyst calling the shots. Zefa vs Kkoma for example.

: I think I have good Ideas. Who can I talk to?
I used to make rundowns of events or just a bit of informative threads on the boards. I used to also moderate for Azubu so occasionally I made power rankings with the chat during OGN hours and questioning why I'm up at 4 am doing them. Nowadays adult life slowed me down but I'm getting back in a groove surely. For your case, I would suggest standing out in however many ways you can; Reddit, Twitter, these boards, Discord, you name it. Basically every comment before mine has some food for thought and I endorse each of those.

: 2nd pair arms* i don't think anyone types with only 1 hand
I'm not sure why but this made me think of Goro from Mortal Kombat playing League of Legends...
: If you watched that game, you would understand. That game was the shortest LoL game of LoL. And G2 lost to other "less experience" teams in EU. Basically after MSI, they got cocky and had vacation while all other teams grinded hard like crazy. So they fell behind super hard and they don't really care for wins atm. more to have fun. As you seen on Caps face, every loss he got this season, he just been laughing. While before MSI every time he got a loss he had a very depressing face. They are just having fun atm, and don't take League serious as before MSI.
Even in results based analysis alone - for this **Summer Split** mind you - they beat Origen and Splyce who are highly discussed to be in that Top 4 talk. Their ego and off the wall style hasn't been punished other than against Fnatic who without a doubt tops the standings. You're the one basing G2 as 3rd best off of what? Rift Rivals? Pfft hold up son...
: Ye.. But on serious not. They really are currently Eu's 3rd strongest team in terms of standings.
Says what?! They've only lost to Fnatic in the domestic standings! Who's more justified for 2nd without using RR results?
: My team went 3-1 and whipped G2 twice. And they only lost that one because they were having fun and inted. No salt here. Just sugar and spice and everything nice. My team showed it can compete. As for the TSM train wreck and the C9 building demolition, well their fans may or may not be salty but I know some fans of other teams were secretly (some not so secretly) hoping they got dumpstered.
Can't even fault C9 that hard. If you wanna force expectations to play like their lives matter when not physically at 100%, then that's just cruel. TSM however had no valid excuse. They really dropped the ball.
: Well of course I aim. all these Americans cry salt all over the place. Someone has to pick it up. It's great on chicken and Popcorn afterall
Alright. Pick it up n have fun. Kinda losing if you're throwing shade though. I mean who the hell eats food off of salt on a plate?! You sprinkle it ON something usually!
: Move Rift Rivals to December
Believe it or not it was also quite hard to balance Rift Rivals Blue on my end with work, SGDQ week and CEO weekend going on. RR Red is gonna be an easier effort even if it's VOD catching cause 2 of those 3 things won't be going on! That being said though, I'd prefer Rift Rivals to be integrated into All Stars in some way. The event was intended to be more international showing but with this year cutting the Purple, Green, and Yellow tournaments, it did lose some if not all of its value
: EU, EU, EU, EU!
You gonna eat that salt, dude?
: Do you find LCS, International tournaments etc fun to watch anymore?
I'm going to be outright honest with you... Why kick the representatives? One did just fine. One was sick internally. The last one sucked but everyone hates them as an org as is. What you're crying over is expecting immaculate domination otherwise they're complete failures who deserve nothing. Frankly if that's how you want to act, just give up on the LCS. Period. Please do something to stop your unnecessary suffering! And I'm sorry but are we watching the same split so far? 20 minutes? One sided stomps? Perma CC? Sounds like your one day analysis of the summer split you made after [**DAY 1 of LCS!!!**](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/esports/ylWEByMr-what-i-think-of-the-lcs). The sample size you're using is so freaking narrow that you clearly don't and won't watch anything else. And idk that. But the way you react to such an expected loss really goes to show. --- _Edit: This goes for anyone else too. If LCS at internationals is so hecking disappointing that even effort can't be respected and so unfun because there's no winning, why continue to feed your negativity? Jesus christ if RIFT RIVALS of all events has to be the competition where fans get so destructive, there's really something wrong!_
: So I'll Say This...
I was not expecting this after reading the title. But god damn. You earned that up. Doesn't even feel like being mad or kicking em while they're down. Just unfortunate.

: EU pummeling NA Day 2 Recap
My major takeaways are that Jankos got to play Pyke before it potentially dies of nerfs. I didn't care who won cause of that. Sometimes NA vs EU just needs a little nod to the side for recurring team narratives. Aside that though, it was a 3-2 day in favor of NA. There's a dribble of hope going into relay day tomorrow. Meanwhile, I'm off to wondering how the red rift tournament will shape up next week.

: The CLG one is also a meme all though it’s an older one at that with the whole “potential” thing. You probably already know it but, I’ll give you a brief dossier of this meme. Back from 2013 to early 2015 CLG were infamous for their underachieving despite how strong their roster looked on paper and the “potential” they had. This meme was at its peak during 2014 as CLG had finals ambitions with Korean top laner Seraph. But, they had team chemistry so bad that they got sent to the Relegation Tournament. In that, CLG escaped by the skin of their teeth. This meme died out in 2015 summer when CLG won their first championship. Though, the argument could be made that they returned to their underachieving ways as they have struggled the past 3 splits.
True true. But I still don't believe so I went with the 100T playoffs run!

: Describe Your Playstyle
Currently my playstyle is the same as the main game: play with the flow. I am 1-0 with that and prepared to retire a god. But this is addicting.
: I meeean.. im no expert, but your build should change every game. You should be building for the circumstance. Countering what the enemy has. But again, I'm just a silver scrub so Ill just leave it at that. Ive never been harassed about my builds as I don't experiment much. I do know that people look for anything to blame a loss on so thats probably the main issue. Just people being childish. Edit: looking at your match history, I don't like your build, but I also dont know all that much about WW so I cant really criticize it lol. Do you sell your jungle item most of the time? Is that just a late game thing? Just wondering.

You should be building for the circumstance. Countering what the enemy has. But again, I'm just a silver scrub so Ill just leave it at that. Silver or not, every player should come into every game with subtle flexibility to itemization in my opinion. A key thing I picked up in ARAM is doing just that. Case in point, a 5 burst AP team with no forward sieging into waveclear and a marksman threat. I'd be one of the first to either build a gunblade, manamune, or bring Demolition. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. No game's any perfect. I can still remember my Jungle Garen experimenting and the number of times I flexed my build x.x

: So what comps have you guys won with?
The best I've done is 2nd with Triple Assassin composition. Itemization was rather random. It was rough trying to adjust my main game mindset of building as the game goes into TFT, where you need a plan and to stick with it cause RNG

: Let's See What's Cooking in the Other Regions
Whoa hold on - first take my approval of this; was a fun read - but whoa hold on a second. I fall back on my joys of LPL shenanigans (plus I like Raz) and I can fill in a couple of points here n there. 1. VG has been ass since franchising. Even before that. WE on the other hand have been the perennial Spring Team in the last 2 years. At this point, not a major surprise. 2. Rogue Warriors: roster overhaul into 2019, no major star power. Expected. 3. Dominus...chalking that up to being downloaded for being the squad of rookies. If I had to chalk up the current standings, it'd be something like this: FPX - Yep RNG - Expected LNG - When did Snake learn to play? SN - Hmm (Reads their SoS) Yeah that's not lasting TES - (Also reads their SoS) No threats yet EDG - Face RNG and I determine OMG - Actually feels misleading V5 - Not banking on them IG - Taking the RNG route, eh? (Respectably so) BLG - Haven't watched a game of theirs LGD - Pending disappointment JDG - Expected by SoS The rest - The rest --- The other regions you're spot on

: TFT/PBE Login Queue... Is this for real?
Yep. Took a decent nap n everything. Reminds me a lot of early URF days. It sucks but eh, whatcha gonna do?
: Best games to watch
That's a bit of a broad idea. I mean it's been kinda done here n there by the community in their own rhetoric. It's even been done by the esports division themselves where they'd have 3 or 4 highlight games over the past week. In means of content creation though, they used to focus LCS Cooldown to that but with the inclusion of Academy showmatches the Cooldown is basically its namesake more than a breakdown. In the eye of a random producer, every game is "must see." Plus we're only talking 10 games/week if only LCS. There's 5 days between that to VOD up and they rebroadcast on Monday as is.

: Congrats Fox
There's a reason they're both at the bottom of the standings. Albeit deserved to said standings, I thought it was a good game in terms of analyzing where both teams can improve. Can't have a perfect league after all. Seriously though, why all the hate on 100T again? Is it still the blame game, completely ignoring the whole absence of actual synergy or what?
: This Week in League (LCS) Week 3
Pretty detailed and laid back recap. To be brief with it, my big take aways were these: * With a 6-way tie for 1st, this League is hella top heavy. But the parity is definitely gonna start breaking out as the split goes on. So far, I'm really liking it. * I feel awful for Flyquest specifically. Both rosters are having it rough with no ground for resurgence. I'll be watching them for the coming weeks now that I'm believing in Optic comfortably. * On a global power ranking spectrum, the results of TSM vs C9 and GGS vs CLG after today may or may not have really spun up my perceived Top 10. Originally the losers of both matches today had a talk to be there but now I'm just bleh; my 5-10 got harder to identify.

: They can't mute until after the player has already caused damage.
Exactly! Irl, I live a style that is summed up as everyone deserving a chance until they don't. When you realize they don't, it sticks even a little. Applies to League too. I don't wanna think my team toxic schmucks ever. But when I used to get "uninstall" threats for poor games, I felt my performance falter with my heart rate spiking from pressure to perform. Yeah I muted but the damage was done for a remainder of the game (long games it kinda fizzled out though).

Other regions makes mistakes too, but at least they win international events some of the times. What happened in this TL game was actually massive. To have one challenger player "missclick" into a Lux bubble that is just laying there is a big "WHAT" moment. It's a big "whoopsie" that just shouldn't happen. But to have 3 pro players clicking into the same bubble at the same moment is more than that. It shows a lack of "mechanical skills" and "positional understanding" by this team. This shows something deeply troubling that is much worse than trying to foolishly dive someone and failing. Then we have that time when Lux hit a double stun from far away in mid. Also a big "what" moment, if TL positioned less bad it would have been a single hit or if they had better mechanics it would been 0 hits. You expect a challenger to not miss half the cs. Just as you expect them to not walk into a bubble that is just laying on the ground, TL should be able to dodge a bubble that is just laying there. If they walk into it the reason should be clear like "I can probably secure a kill by taking some damage and walking this way". Dodging a missed spell is very low level core mechanics, sort of like last hitting at this level, and it should be on point. But all three players of TL just take the spell and for no reason. NA LCS just shows bad positional play and mechanics you don't expect to see at this level. I think NA need to "step it up" and stop with excuses at some point. These TL mistakes are horrible and shouldn't happened, a good coach would probably scold these players for playing like this over and over so they realise how big this is.
I live in the now. If someone wants to criticize a team's mistakes and pin that on the whole region based on historical metrics, I'm damn well gonna find that bull shit if the same errors, if not worse, exist elsewhere **presently**. As for your comment: do I just need to link the clip of the team fight between SKT and Afreeca from the other day that frontpaged Reddit? If you want to nitpick poor execution, positioning and scatterbrained actions, then there's plenty of games from LCK alone where I can shoot at. Oh but they can compete cause irrelevant plot armor right? No. Give me a break.
: After watching LCS I ask myself: Can NA compete playing like this? Answer: NO
