: The biggest problem with low Elo is that you can barely climb by playing 'smart'
Daykeem (NA)
: You're Losing New Players & Veterans like Myself
So Riot should just turn off chat? That's the solution to your "problem"
Bârd (NA)
: 4v5's are not just "some disadvantage"
Notice how no one from Riot will ever respond to this type of thread, but they'll jump all over some irrelevant post about skin ideas or something else completely unconstructive
Sachabot (NA)
: Nonononono, not _**for**_ your team. _**With**_ your team. You cover their backs, they cover yours. If you only ever see your team as deadweights to be carried then you're gonna have a bad time, and lose a lot.
That makes sense in higher ELO when everyone has some level of competency, but if you can't accept the absurd skill fluctuation of low ELO players, you're delusional. For example, if you main support in bronze, you're not getting out without a hell of a lot of luck. And that's bullshit
Sachabot (NA)
: "Good Players" has a different definition for LoL than the one in your head. It's not about your CS, or KDA, or KP, or whatever solo stat you're thinking about when you call yourself good. It's how well you work with your team. Your team fails, you fail. That's how it should be here.
WHY. That's nonsense. You should be judged on your ability to win a game for your team, I agree, but If your positives dont outweigh the negatives of up to FOUR other people, you get punished. THAT's the flaw. The intention is correct, the execution is flawed.

Even if it is only level 1 mastery, at least your team knows you have played that champ before Nononononononono. I have multiple accounts and I don't want to have to grind each and every one of them to play ranked like that. I already grinded them all for the masteries and champs. Plus, when you play with a known group of folks it's nice to be able to pull out that secret pick they didn't know you played because you practiced it in secret on an alt, so your, lolnexus, lolking, or whatever you feel like using doesn't show that champ. Plus there's the fact that mastery doesn't even mean you know how to play the champ. I got lvl 5 mastery on Teemo but still lose like 80% of the matches I play with him cause I'm bad at kiting.
This is way too elaborate and definitely not typical. It's a great idea, too bad for you
: True, but it would be a really great idea if you had to at least have had some experience before playing in ranked with an unfamiliar champion. I agree with that 1,000%, because like the OP said, a player not knowing how to play a champion can bring a game down, and ruin the experience for everyone. EDIT: IMO, I think gaining mastery should actually be harder, as in you have to WIN to gain mastery, but in exchange for that, you gain more than you do now.{{sticker:zombie-brand-mindblown}}
No. Wins shouldn't matter. Riot burned that fucking train to the ground already
Rioter Comments
: So, about the ranked system...
Honestly I couldn't care less about people being toxic, but it infuriates me that Riot has tried harder to make people nicer than it has to fix its shitty system. I completely agree with the rest of your points tho. But alas, Riot doesn't give a shit. Ranked doesn't make money.
: Then let's implement this: If it's proven you AFKed intentionally (people usually "warn" their team beforehand) LP of the team he was in will be refunded. The leaver has to take full responsibility and has to take a HUGE hit to his/her LP. People in a promo series will still lose a game due to the new Division helper System. If you can somehow prove it was a Problem with the client LP loss will be reduced to 25% from 100%. ------------- Quite honestly, I doubt this is both possible or something Riot would do.
Of course it's possible. But it takes time and resources Riot will never put into it
: It's been 7 years, and 4v5's are still broken games.
Riot doesn't give a shit. They never have. They never will. Ranked doesn't make them money so they won't put resources into it. Hell, they won't even take the time to respond to threads like these. The serious ones that affect 90% of their base.
: I approve this message, they should also look at when the deaths are, if you cant go 10 min without 6 deaths, drop to bronze 5 immediately.
I just wish Riot would care. Because they don't. Anyone who says otherwise has their head up Phreak's ass

: Ranked Play Bug
Riot doesn't give a shit and hasn't for 6 years. Nor do I expect them to. They're lazy, and want money. Fixing the ranked system doesn't make money. Making a lot of shitty skins does.
Statikk (NA)
: Mid-Year Mage Update
I don't agree with the philosophy of buffing all champs to be equally OP, which Riot seems to be in favor of right now. Games are just getting absurdly out of hand way too quickly because there are so many "unique" champs, and by that I mean uniquely broken. Tone it back PS Vel'koz is my favorite champ pls go easy on him

: To all the players who hate "autolockers".
You suck dude. If I get people like you in a game I would intentionally screw with you and lose on purpose. I care less about winning than I do about getting rid of the assholes like you

: Ranked Restrictions
There are three major problems of ranked: 1. How LP works. 2. Players disconnecting for long periods of time. 3. Player Behavior. In that order of importance and relevance. So the least important and relevant one has been addressed. Great. Will we ever see change in the ones that really do matter?
: Kind of ironic you mentioned stupidity. Loss prevented does not mean you didn't lose. get that out of your head, you still lost the game and the other team won. All it means is you don't lose mmr/lp. You missed what i was saying. and it makes you look stupid from my perspective.
Oh my god you're arguing a technicality that everyone understands stahp
: People wouldn't lose 4v5 games anymore? Newsflash, you still lose the game, you just don't lose MMR/ELO. And not everyone that abuses a flaw in the system is going to get banned, nor is riot going to implement something that can be abused so easily.
Senpanda (NA)
: Riot: "We know 4v5's have been a big problem for a long time, so in response we've got a great change on the way! we're nerfing AP Xin zhaos healing everyone! that's what you wanted, right? no? oh, well too late that's all you get"
Hahaha so true. I don't get why they just completely ignore the issue
: I'm sorry, but I am finished with posts like this. All you are doing here, is complaining. You aren't doing or saying anything constructive in the slightest sense. All you people do is fucking cry and moan about this all day and night, but don't do anything afterwards. All you are doing here, is crying about a problem. Great. Now, do something constructive with it. Give an idea, or even ask for something to be done. It probably won't happen, but that's better than just sitting down in a chair and going "Yeah, there is a big problem here. Fix it." "Okay, how?" "Just fix it you ass."
Haha geez so you think saying nothing is better than at least bringing it up to the people whose JOB it is to fix it? Makes a LOT of sense. You're damn right all I'm doing is complaining. But I'm not the one being paid to make the game better. Shit, I'm doing the paying
: with some friends i played 5on5 normals and we went all 5 top for about 30 games. winrate: 29/1 if they want to go 4 marksmen mid, just shut up and play along. seriously. or dodge.
Dude. I don't know if you see the difference between 5 people premade choosing to do something and four man premade and a fifth sucker getting dragged into it, but it's there for the trained eye to see. MY WHOLE FUCKING POINT is that I shouldn't have to dodge and get punished for this behavior
: as would be my reaction because your definition of "a normal game" is very stubborn and predetermined. you are basically not open to your game being "a normal game" if it doesnt look like your usual template of what you see in LCS. now if they played 4 adcs mid in lcs, you would instantly be like "new meta 4 adcs mid, if you go adc support bot, thats troll" go get some personality man
Dude that's kinda a stupid response and you know it. I'm not stuck in the meta or anything I'm all for experimenting but if you don't think that's just straight up trolling, then you'd be wrong. I guarantee you would be pissed too if you had to sit through a game like that

: How exactly do you know people dont deserve it? its really hard to see if people have actually been toxic. So many people come here to say they've done nothing wrong when they could have been toxic. we cant see the game chat so its impossible to tell. What i think also is the problem is that people want instant punishment. thats never going to happen. sadly despite what the community think im sure people actually take a look at the reports. granted automated ones like negative attitude can be automated since all they need to do is see what words you use. im sure curse/racist/homophobic words are targeted and see if you say it and how often you say it.
Well actually, no one does look at reports. Punishment is all based on your frequency of being reported. As for the first part of your statement, I don't even know what you're saying. I'm critical of other players yes, but I wouldn't say I'm actually toxic. I try and give criticism in a positive or at least neutral way, and people in this game really can't handle that. If there was actually a human reading the chat capable of actual analysis, I think many, sure not all, of my reports would be unfounded. I DEFINITELY don't use racist/homophobic words
: ah, im sorry i must have missunderstood that. what i would love to see and what i think is the most healthy system is a general report system ON THE LEAGUE OF LEGENDS WEBSITE so that if you feel like someone REALLY crossed the line (intentionally feeding/racism/whatever) you can go to the website, fill out a serious report form and it gets looked at by some kind of support team and they will then punish that person. but automated or not, an INGAME report system instills toxicty and hatred in the community like nothing else.
I agree that sounds like a good system that wouldn't be hard to implement

Is ranked really just a lottery where you either get competent team mates or people who don't know what wards are and blame their team for their mistakes?
Yes that's how they want it.
: Most polite way to help team mates?
If you say anything to anyone about their play you will get reported. That's the system Riot encourages
: people like you, whjo are like "OMG PUNISHMENT PLEASE" are actually the true problem, not the flamers. there are communities that have absolutely no punishment-system and you can write in chat whatever you want without getting banned, and nobody actually gives a fuck because its JUST FUCKING CHAT. and in those games, for the most part, the community is really happy and positive. nobody cries "OMG REPORT" and "PUNISH THIS GUY HE CALLED ME ASS" its just peaceful you know? wardogs like you are as unneccessary as the other 5 passives in ekkos kit
Where's the crying-laughing emoji when i need it? My POINT is that people are getting punished by a computer program who may not deserve it, while people who are horrible don't get punished. I would LOVE a no punishment system. But if they are going to insist on having one, at least make it fair.

And as usual, Riot will ignore this thread while responding to others that are about completely pointless shit
: Fix Ranked
Last game: 9/4/10 as support Vel'koz, rest of team is something like 15/30/20 idk but we lose bad. How is that a justification of me losing LP? I just don't understand it
: > [{quoted}](name=Greekscope,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=pF1dOlHP,comment-id=,timestamp=2015-06-27T21:46:39.938+0000) > >I don't want my rank being based off of how 9 other people play Well, that's a simple fix then! Stop playing ranked, multi-player team games like League of Legends.
So in your opinion, your personal ranking is not ranking how good you personally are at the game?

If you make it based on individual performance, people will just farm to get lots of cs, and only go in if they can get kills and avoid death. There should be a more complex algorithm to calculate your rank. Like KDA, cs, turret hit/dmg, inhib hit/dmg, objectives (dragon baron), how many wards placed, where wards are placed, when wards are placed, when you got a kill, how many dk, tk, qk, pk, duration of you in combat, how many spells cast, how much dmg dealt, how much dmg taken, how much you healed, you much dmg your shield taken. All of this add 50%, multiply by 3, divided by 2, gives you your performance.
Exactly. Right now it's just the laziest possible way of "ranking" someone.
