: Hey guys, So I have contacted Riot Support about this and apparently you need to watch longer videos. The short 1v1s and 2v2s are not counting consistently because the videos are too short. Try watching through the URF, Nexus Blitz, and SR games. If you're running out of time, watch them at 2x speed. It's hilarious to hear the casters sound like hamsters =) And be sure not to skip any part of the VOD. Let me know if this works for anyone.
I looked at the FAQ and it said to try watching for at least 15 minutes. None of it seems very consistent though. I am at 8 of 12 watched for the emote and I must have played over 40 today alone. I think at least once a 7 minute one counted before I saw the FAQ that said to try for over 15 minutes. Since then randomly some will count but the vast majority do not. Since it's not consistent I can't say if watching at 2x speed counts or if it just cares about actual minutes watched or what.
: 1 day left of mission, and VOD credit still not being granted.
I watched a whole day live on their watch.lolesports.com site and numerous vods as well and haven't gotten any credit as well. Edit: It just started working for me today apparently, no idea why.

: This isnt challenger ffs. You are legit silver 4 trying to claim that because Challenger players dodge games that it also applies to you. Also, you can simply watch Challenger streams and see these dodges don't happen nearly as frequently as you're claiming. Half the time its done isn't even because the person is bad, they just dont like each other. God damn people will look for any excuse they can to perpetuate this bullshit 'ELO hell' nonsense. >First Champ select > Akali top (player 41% win rate with akali) Autofill ADC MF (48% win rate over all) Jungle Trundle 49% win rate (fyi trundle is not even in top 40 junlgers) LeB mid 51% (other then me this is our best champ win rate) You dodge because people have 48% wirate? You have 48% WR yourself. In your past 18 games your own WR drops down to **28%**. You dodge because Akali has a 41% WR on Akali? **YOU ARE SPAMMING ZYRA WHO YOU HAVE 38% WR ON.** YOU WOULD LITERALLY DODGE _**YOURSELF**_ IF YOU COULD.
You don't understand, this person wouldn't have such a low win rate if he were allowed to dictate who he played with and against and what champions they played every game he was in. It's Riot's fault for not crafting their game to cater to this one petulant child.

My experience hasn't been that bad, though I do leave allchat muted by default. From my own team I had one game of the five I've played where someone repeatedly spam-linked my Sword of the Divine Malphite build but that was about it.

What does being turn based have to do with anything? Any one of them could have taken 10 seconds to end the game at their leisure. We spent as much time at our fountain hitting enemies that were sitting still not fighting back as we did out of our fountain. They weren't ignorant of what they were doing. They didn't care about winning. It was an ARAM.

: 35 mins huh? I've had a few 35+ min games, none of which were "not fun" some games we had double aces where both teams were dead multiple times. I actually find long Aram games quite fun.
Ok, the issue wasn't that the game was long. The issue was it was no contest. The opposing team literally sat just outside our fountain letting our Teemo and Draven beat on them for 10 seconds or more before trying to fountain dive and sometimes succeeding at getting kills while fountain diving. If they hadn't been killing themselves to our fountain we never would have gotten far enough out of our base to keep the super minions off the Nexus but they did.

Edge of Night? The item that gives 0 MR and blocks one spell that cannot be used reactively and blocks both AD and AP spells? The one that almost no one builds ever? Also unless you're bringing pure tank items into the conversation that "etc" you used to imply there's a whole list of other items could be replaced with "Mercurial Scimitar" because it's the only AD/MR item other than Hexdrinker. So there are two AD/MR items: Hexdrinker (which nobody calls Maw of Malmortius because nobody ever builds a full Maw) and Mercurial Scimitar. People also basically don't build Mercurial Scimitar; they build QSS and then if it's the end of the game and they have nothing else to build they finish the scimitar. Almost like they... build a completely defensive MR item in response to a threatening source of AP damage and crowd control. I will trade you Maw of Malmortius and QSS building into a lackluster AP item instead of a lackluster AD item for a nice AD item with the Zhonya's active any day of the week.
: Lissandra w and r nerfs
Wait... you mean that they wouldn't just add a more useful passive to someone all ready seeing high level play all the time with a great win rate without nerfing some of her other things? Like maybe she was balanced around having a lackluster passive and suddenly adding a better passive to her came at a cost? No...

: Didn't they just buff ward length? Like twice recentyl?????
I believe they buffed duration but more than made up for it by increasing the CD on getting them. It may have been a net neutral in a vacuum but it meant any ward that is cleared is even more of a penalty.

Bleh, I have 2333 tokens right now but also I think the normal K/DA Kaisa looks a lot better than Prestige K/DA. Better outfit, better color scheme, better hairstyle, heck even better little orbiter thingamagigs.
: Don't. Play. Ranked. I have won so many 4v5s it's not even funny. Stop telling other people to surrender when you signed up to play a 40 minute game with a team. They have a right to expect their team to stay competitive until the end. God the fucking sportsmanship in the League community is absolute shit.
Wouldn't sportsmanship dictate that the other team have a player not play so that you have a 4v4? Isn't that fair and generous behavior? How often do you retire from a match where your opponents have an AFK in the interest of sportsmanship?
: Huh? It's almost like those are two entirely different issues. One of them was spreading shit about holocaust denial, the other isn't a job that every person can do
I believe he's referring to a Youtube stream recently that had a Holocaust denier on that raised tens of thousands of dollars to donate to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. Youtube ended up banning the Youtuber, a Wallstreet Journal reporter had been contacting people to write an article about the far right's use of Superchats on Youtube, and St. Jude said they would not have accepted the money because of its source.

: Whats the ETA on being able to change to smite in-game?
They certainly have made it absolutely mandatory to have someone with smite on your team. The amount of experience lost without it is staggering.
: Why AP champs need 3000 but tanks 1000 and AD 800 gold to get grievous wounds?
Different items are different. Why do AP get flat magic pen while AD have to deal with flat pen that starts out bad and then eventually scales? Why do AP get penetration boots and AD don't?
: The Howl of Noxus mission "win a pvp summoner's rift match in under 30 minutes"
It's almost as if all of the missions are designed to be done by just playing the game normally... When you think about it it could be Riot saying "hey we acknowledge that games are ending really freaking quickly now" but it's more likely them saying "get used to it lol."
Dasdi96 (NA)
: When was the last time have you seen a support take exhaust?
I take exhaust when my ADC takes teleport and I have resigned myself to playing on the back foot all lane and losing if the opposing bot lane can ever force a fight. Helps remind me that my ADC took freaking teleport again. Not saying it doesn't have its uses but I rarely see ADC in low plat/high gold using it well; they just saw some streamer or pro take it so it must be good.
: How Come Orianna and Karma get shield nerfs but Lux gets buffed?
Ori's shield gives armor and mr, damages enemies it passes through, is on a lower cd, and shields for as much as the doubled part of Lux's shield. The returning part of Lux's shield is even harder to land than the part going out and is even more delayed so the biggest part of her shield can come out too late to matter with the burst people have. Given the chance I would trade Lux's shield for Ori's any time.
: i mean its damage was buffed to assist in 1-shotting cooldown doesn't matter if your enemy just got 1-shot
Maybe... we could play a game where you don't routinely see people getting 1-shot?
: why are you nerfing rageblade? but not kai sa?
Even Vayne, a champion with no AP scaling, is building Rageblade. You don't think maybe the item is a problem?
Infernape (EUW)
: They are not going to remove the reset on Bladesurge. It would be like removing Darius' ult.
So... they could make it so that it resets but after 5 seconds it goes on cd anyway or something? Like Darius ult resets but eventually goes on CD?
Azadethe (NA)
: nah they all had her newly buffed W. look at her build. It's AP leaning, not AD leaning. With the buff to her W to nerf her passive, AP just erases when you are solo (Btw..... this Ez is bad in that he just walked right up to her with no minions nearby to soak her Q) Lich bane also proc'd. Some 900 AP, and a {{item:3135}} . Lots of champs erase like this when they have 900 AP and Lich bane.... {{champion:28}} for example can E > R an adc late game or E > Q without W. She also had electrocute. In other words, 2 Major burst procs + inherent damage on her build.
Her W was actually nerfed last patch. They increased the AP ratio by .15, but it applies 2 or 3 stacks of her passive which was nerfed far harder than that. Mostly though it's just... this preposterously fed champion that builds pure damage deleted this other champion that built no defensive items. Huge shocker.
: How about making his Q not apply on-hits? Fixes his synergy with Klepto. Or if you want to keep that reduce the damage and increase the cooldown on his E. Or if you want to keep that reduce the amount Q's reduce your cooldowns by.
Suggesting that his Q not apply on hits is basically asking them to make him an entirely different character. Everything he builds is centered around his Q applying on-hits.
Azadethe (NA)
: He's already a better jungler than support. His clear is one of the top 4 in the jungle, if played correctly. Not because of skills..... but because his auto attack AD is high to begin with. I can clear my own jungle AND steal half the opponent's jungle without them even having a chance to stop me. And his Q does get a short CD. So does E. It's called leveling them. By level 7 my E is down to about 6 seconds.
His E is his stunning dash and it has a flat cd of 15 seconds regardless of level.
: Pyke's cool downs are too long imo
His hook and his AoE damaging stun that is also a mobility move that lets him hop walls are on long cooldowns? No... Seriously like... maybe I could see giving his Q a lower CD if you just use the stabey slowey bit but that would facilitate jungle Pyke which I doubt they want to do.
Bultz (NA)
: When you look at shields make sure to nerf Karma's
It's not a spell shield, and it's only 4.8 seconds if you have max CDR. Karma all ready falls off later in the game because she doesn't have the tools a lot of other supports have to make really big plays, Mantra'd shield is about the only thing going for her as a support later in the game.

I guess it just took me a while to realize it. It's been so long since one of the books came out and I don't watch the show so it wasn't on my mind.

: Absolutely. I always honor the player that did the best. I couldn't give half a fuck about how nice you were. Nice didn't win the game, skill, strategy, execution, won the game. Talk is fucking cheap, you don't get my one honor point per game because you were nice and thoughtful or some shit. Great work, you have basic human interaction skills. Meanwhile we're getting fucked in lane, but you're all nice about it. No player in their right mind would weight 'being nice' over winning. Unless they are one of those weirdos that plays a pvp online game, in ranked, and for some fucking reason value fun over winning. If you don't you should be in normals. Is this not obvious? League lately always feels like, give it everything you have, but don't worry- your 'teammates' are inting. How much blinker do I need to cross eight lanes of traffic? Don't know, good luck ereybody! BOOM CRASH EXPLOSIONS FUCKYOUYOULOSEPOOPFACE RAHAHAHAHAHAHAA. They didn't do it on purpose though. Its k, be nice. They only wasted 4 other peoples time. If we get to mute chat I want to mute inting. MAKE ME A FUCKING BUTTON. Please? Thanks. You know its fucking bad when the mods in the forums say shit like, they shouldn't HAVE to use the mute button. Ok genius volunteer mod- great, empart your wisdom upon us. Lets police the world and stop everyone from saying the words we don't like- whatever those words are at the time. Base blind ineptitude. Study some history and stop this shit already, it doesn't lead anywhere good. Oh and while we're here, could we honor more than one person? I can report everyone, but only honor one... what the fuck? Why the negativity, lulz lulz lulz. Cue the circus music! I'm getting the fuck out.
Maybe it's time to take a break from League. You're the sort of person so focused on reaming out someone for having a bad game that you turn a game that could be winnable into one where you have an afk player or someone who actually starts inting instead of just doing poorly. When you think you're playing with garbage players try to remember that the game regards you as comparable enough in skill to put you in a game with them.

: 2 changes to make Rakan more viable as a non-support
Supports turning into solo laners has almost always been incredibly oppressive. Janna mid, Soraka mid, Sona mid, Taric top... Like you could say "Leona would be more viable as a non-support if she could trigger her own passive" and you wouldn't be wrong, but that's why her passive works like that. I'm sure that those changes would help solo lane Rakan a ton, which is why they aren't going to happen.
Dyde (EUNE)
: Things That Tilt Your ADC
You missed my biggest aggravation playing ADC: supports that don't do anything about hitting level 2. It seems to happen all the time where a support will just sit in the brush not weakening minions to help clear through the second melee wave faster, then still be up front in the brush as the opposing bot hits 2 and goes aggressive on them. Obviously there are games you can't hit level 2 first, but in that case you need to back the heck up. Also conversely when we hit 2 way before the opposing bot and my support just watches me try to position more aggressively while they hang back.
Antenora (EUW)
: Your list is appropriate but I'd like to add to it - **Things that tilt me as an ADC player:** 1. Supports who decide to face check a bush that the enemy was just spotted in and dies. 2. Supports who decide to roam mid lane and don't provide me any vision, leaving me humping the tower and vulnerable to being dived. 3. Nami's who use their heal for damage instead of healing me. (I've lost fights because of this in the past) 4. Janna shielding herself to trade instead of shielding me when it's needed (during skirmishes) 5. Lulu's who would rather ult themselves in a team fight. 6. Supports who don't communicate when they are going to ult/engage. 7. THIS IS THE BIG ONE. Supports who don't respect when I want to play aggressive or want to passively farm. Some match ups are just difficult and I want to farm it out and scale. 8. Supports who don't understand bot lane match ups or synergies. I am a Vayne main, Please don't pick Brand, Lux, Zyra, Velkoz, Veigar or Annie when I pick Vayne. Pick something that can offer me what I need to get through my weakest stage of the game, my laning phase. **Things that tilt me when I am playing Support** 1. THIS IS THE BIG ONE. ADC's who don't understand how relic shield works and take the cannons for themselves. 2. ADC's who stand still and auto attack in lane. 3. ADC's who don't contribute to vision. 4. ADC's who don't buy {{item:3123}} / {{item:3033}} vs {{champion:36}} {{champion:19}} {{champion:16}} {{champion:8}} and other healing champions. 5. ADC's who think they are Assassin's. Your job is to hit the closest target that is safe to do so. If that means hitting the frontline then you hit the frontline. 6. ADC's who try to force/bully me into a picking a champion they want me to play. I'll play what I'm comfortable playing, not what you tell me.
How are you both upset at supports that pick champs they want to play and at ADC who tell you who you can play?
Dyde (EUNE)
: Things That Tilt Your ADC
I agree with a chunk of these but the "you didn't pick a tank" ones are kind of petty. Support is often autofilled, they might not feel comfortable on a melee support and you shouldn't expect them to. It sucks that your teamcomp sucks at that point, but being the poorest member of your team and the only tank is almost as bad as no tank at all. It's especially odd that you think you can be upset at them for not picking to fit your Kalista when you say you can't pick to fit their Rakan.
: Crit Items should give 25% crit chance after the IE rework
IE + Essence Reaver + Zeal item = 100% If you change Zeal items to be under 30% crit you're hurting Essence Reaver without IE because you need another 30% crit to hit the bonus CDR cap. You'd also be nerfing those Zeal items in general unless you lowered the cost a commensurate amount.
: Please buff ADC and tanky supports.
I'm sorry your Caitlyn was the only one pushing to win in a co-op vs ai game.
: Why does Lissandra have 325 base movement speed?
You could say she moves at a... glacial pace.
: Well getting 40% cdr right off means more ults and such. Also I insult people who build rage blade and ie on varis that is trash and not efficient.
Damn, you must be fun at parties. "I make sure to insult anyone who does something I don't like." We weren't even talking about Infinity Edge or Varus. 40% CDR is good on her but it hardly relates to her ult. She gets to use it once per fight pretty much regardless. Even at 40% CDR a level 3 ult has a 42 second cd, and it's not really an ult you want to just burn casually at the start of the fight. I do like Essence Reaver into Death's Dance into a Zeal item which gets you 40% CDR but it's hardly the only way to build her.
: Nothing new under the sun. Remember it takes meta about 6 months to trickle down to mid/low ELOs, and it is often poorly understood when it does.
Hah, I do remember people having conniptions when ADC started building Youmuu's on Lucian back in Season 3 because the active lasted longer on melee so ranged people were not allowed to build it. The more I think about it though the more I like the idea of doing Reaver -> Rageblade -> Runaan's. You get your Q and E evolved in 3 items that all work really well with her kit.

: Is It Okay To Not Finish My First Item?
In general finished items are incredibly gold efficient, I'm not sure sure about your specific scenario but I would be surprised if it were better than finishing items. The only time I can really see it being a great idea is on Kai'sa because of her conditional evolutions. Getting your Q upgraded is such a huge spike in damage it makes sense to prioritize over finishing your first item.
