: Where are you getting that gold is currently most populated? All the sites I checked said Silver is most populated, though Gold is close.
Perhaps the numbers have changed since I last checked but the fact that gold is still more populated than bronze and iron isn't doing your argument any favour.
: BS, the skill level does change a lot. You are being blind if you think it doesn't change. Why do you think the majority of players exist in iron-silver in ranking and not evenly spread apart?
Yes perhaps that's why challenger level players struggle in diamond these days. You aren't making anyone woke by omitting the fact that gold is currently the most populated tier.
Hi im 12 (EUNE)
: >I can hold an 70% winrate in gold show account > If Gold is going to be your new average it doesn't speak well about your game. its because positional rank and the early season lp gains fucked up the ladder, riot should hard reset the ladder but ya know
Sure bud, come over to the SIngapore server and I'll show you mine. Don't ask me for the account if you can't be arsed to download the SG client and see it for yourself.
: There is this saying I've heard related to LoL: "If everyone is good, than no one is".
That would be true if Riot didn't try so hard to dumb the game down. The new champion and reworks make is so that you can miss everything and still get kills. The only good player in this day and age is one who doesn't either run it down or go afk.

Welcome to another episode of "bot laners a year late in discovering what top laners did a year ago".
Neriticc (EUW)
: Top lane turrets is more tanky than bot lane turrets. They can swap lanes right now if they choose too but bot lane turret plates are easy to take.
Wait, how are the turrets top more tanky when turrets gain defenses based on how many opponents are near them? Do bot turrets still not have the pre 5 min resistances?
: I mean, "it's investment" sounds a lot like "it's an addiction" to me... Have you heard about the Sunken Cost Fallacy?
So I invest time in learning a game and you assume I can't live without it. Yeah, you should like an idiot.

: There WAS a point to the ranked system, back when it took actual skill to play the game and your victory wasn't decided by how much you froth at the mouth. Seriously, even my wins feel like garbage.
You shouldn't be getting downvoted for this.
: Ranked MMR influenced my normal MMR, that's why I play ranked. There's always assholes and stuff at every division, but my personal experience and feeling is that gold MMR has been the chillest MMR I've had. bronze/silv I feel like I've had higher odds of encountering people who were rude. while gold elo just feels good to be in, once its up to play I felt like I was back with laning with rude ass ADCs. Like I'm not saying everyone in those elos are rude or whatever just that I felt like I saw them more often.
Silver is a fucking shithole tbh. My winrate skyrocketed the moment I hit gold.

: i can tell you that people bought those accounts, or hacked account for sale, or using someones acccounts, boosting services you can see that from their plays. i see them dont even take the correct summoners sometimes. all the hardcore players have either stop playing or quit,left infested with bad players and trolls. "people who dont climb there themselves dont know how much effort it takes."
I know what a bought account looks like and these aren't it.
: why does there have to be a reward? there isn't and never was. You climb for the sake of climbing. there are less AFKs the higher the elo you go up, though.
That's literally the only difference. The skill level of people hardly change, besides the obvious immaturity.
Hi im 12 (EUNE)
: high elo play doesn't seem very different from low elo play because you're low elo, the high elo players will have a 95% wr at your elo, tell me how the players aren't that different when 10% of the players in your game can decide 95% of games
I can hold an 70% winrate in gold just fine and couldn't less about what their winrate were. High elo play doesn't seem the game because I'm low to but because League's current state Gold has more payers than Iron. If Gold is going to be your new average it doesn't speak well about your game.
: It keeps the arrogant arseholes feeling either happy or outraged depending on what their real MMR is, and people expect it. Not any different in any other game with matchmade teams and win/loss based ranking, of course. It cant be. Oh, and you get a nice skin each year.
Most of the games I lose are due to either afk's or people actually running it down. I am currently gold II and I see no difference between bronze and gold. Been watching streamers. Dom, Hashinshin, and TF blade get trolled just as much in high elo. I don't actually feel like ranking up in this game because all that grind means nothing when high elo doesn't seem very different from low level play.
Rioter Comments
: Why everyone is ragequitting even in ranked now?
I don't know about others but in the seldom moments when I rage quit it is because I can't be arsed to play with teammates hell bent on trolling. Last match was an example. I have this top lane {{champion:157}} main who picks Jax after Yasuo gets banned and proceed to feed his ass off trying to all in the opponent Aatrox every moment he could get from level 2 onwards. Mid lane {{champion:103}} who is up against a Fizz, doesn't realize she needs to land her charms in order to all in and dies to him repeatedly right from level 1. 25 mins into the game two of our inhibs lie exposed and these guys won't listed to my calls. I didn't flame them in the least bit but these guys kept pushing mid and dying 2v4/2v5 repeatedly throughout the game. I was being held hostage in a game except I won't stand for it. Some games can kiss my ass goodbye. I went afk on that game and only came by to move around every 3 mins to avoid leavebuster. I was autofilled jungle and they ended the game at 2/8 and 3/11 each. If I am going to be paired based on matchmaking which doesn't respect me then, then I have no intentions of respecting the matchmaking and grind my time on worthless idiots.

This is why I am playing more of Dota 2 these days. It's just that I've spend so much time learning all the champs and items in League leaving it behind feels like an investment I am giving up on.
Rioter Comments
: Sometime in preseason they said they are going to fix jungle, most like week before season starts so jungle has to re learn role yet again. I agree jungle is weak now and only the hyper gankers can prevail. What needs to be done is camps need to respawn faster, blue side needs more experience added so there isn't a dependence to always start red side. Scuttle changes of season 8 need to be reverted.
Legit got the better jungler three or so matches ago, and I kid you not she sat in my brush for three fucking waves. The opponent eventually pushed in and we got a kill on him. This was three waves, which is around a minute and a half straight of camping. She walks out the same level as the opponent farming jungler. Go figure.

The difference isn't that big, perhaps a level or so but nowhere is a jungler who sits in lane soaking up exp going to be 3 levels lower. You read that wrong. The jungler power farming his jungle will be 3 levels under the top laner. You get more xp as a “jungler” sharing lane xp with your top laner than you do farming jungle.
Agreed. Junglers literally sit in lane these days while losing out on nothing. The system is flawed but your average boards user cannot understand it coz they are baised.

There isn't a single reason why two junglers in the same elo would play so differently in which one creates all the map pressure while the other takes no objectives in the meantime and still doesn't demote despite being clueless on how to jungle. theres no reason why you cant 1v2. beside the fact that your knowledge sucks and your blaming jungle instead of the actual problem.
Show me your videos on successful 1v2'ing and I'll take you up on that advice.

: Sure, but doing that risks making champions like them useless! I do agree, we need some sort of counter to stealth champion, but making it what you suggest potentially makes them useless
Of course, but the tradeoff now is that you don't have as many wards and can get ganked easily. Jungle pressure isn't something to make lightly of.

Bs. The difference isn't that big, perhaps a level or so but nowhere is a jungler who sits in lane soaking up exp going to be 3 levels lower.

: if shes sitting there for 1 min she is losing out. if shes not being punished then thats an elo problem.
Then that's just a problem with the game's matchmaking. There isn't a single reason why two junglers in the same elo would play so differently in which one creates all the map pressure while the other takes no objectives in the meantime and still doesn't demote despite being clueless on how to jungle.

: It kinda is. It reveals where teemo, akali, and vayne ARE, while no it doesnt let you auto them, if you have AOE then you can still hit them.
That's exactly why it isn't true sight. They need to take a long hard look at buffing vision and make this a counterplay to those pesky champions. The reason Vayne, Akali, and champs such as Qiyana have no counterplay is coz there don't exist items which help you against them. You can arguable build armour aginst Vayne and MR against Akali but then you'd be a sitting duck delaying the inevitable.
Rioter Comments
: "In the case of Eve and Riven, we overnerfed them and wanted to follow up."
No, neither of these have been overnerfed. They are exactly where they should be, albeit in Riven's case we should still give her a couple of patches before they decide. These idiots take 4 seasons to nerf Riven but less than a patch before they decide to buff her back. Edit : Literally none of those champions require buffs. Aurelion Sol straight up needs to be reverted.
: There's a large difference between skirmisher and bruiser. Bruisers survive extended trades due to raw base stats skirmishers survive due to outplaying, hence why there are assassins who are skirmishers (ekko comes to mind). Not to mention, yasuo was never intended for top lane, in fact, he was intended to be a bot lane melee adc. The only reason people played him top was due to it being easier to farm in, which in the current meta, it is not (for yasuo).

He can attack through your thornmail while outhealing you all the while. Jax, Yasuo, Fiora, are all bruisers while being skirmishers alike. > skirmishers survive due to outplaying, hence why there are assassins who are skirmishers (ekko comes to mind). No, they aren't. Assassins are slayers, so are skirmishers. Ekko isn't an assassin and hasn't been in forever. Same with Diana who people misleadingly call an assassin despite her never having been one. These guys are amazing at extended trades and fall in the same category as Riven, Yasuo, and Jax.
: you say that like it isn't just as easy for a mage to get seekers....
Seeker's isn't nearly as effective against a champ who can sit there auto attacking you over and over again. That's one reason why magic resist is so much more influential than flat armour because shit like Conqueror exist (which Yasuo takes) and the fact that he can beat you down repeatedly without any cooldown on auto attacks. Meanwhile mages do have a very long cooldown early game. Not saying they are healthy, I hate how powerful mages get with a single item. But yes MR is mroe effective.

He is a skirnisher. He excels in extended trades. He is a bruiser. What he isn't, is an assassin like you'll prefer calling him.
: Simple nerf, remove his stupid shield, so he isn't so safe.
That, in itself would be a very strong move.
: oriana is hard LB while an assassin, is also a mage and is decently hard a good viktor can easily win lux can poke yas down with e spam annie has been considered a decent yasuo counter pick for the longest time Taliyah is a pain in the ass for yasuo and thats just off the top of my head
Out of all those mages, only Annie deals well with him. Along with Malzahar as I had mentioned. Another mage who would do well would be perhaps Ahri. But even then what is keeping you from going Hexdrinker as the first item?
Zardo (NA)
: Lol not quite. People often leave their adc for dead to dive the enemy ezreal/ahri or something.
No, no. It's the adc who goes split pushing most of the time. I know, I'm a bronze player. :)
Kat XD (NA)
: Don't listen to this guy ADCs don't need peel he is trying to trick you. ...as a Kat main I know these kinds of things :)
Can confirm. Adc's job is to split push and they should continue doing the same.
: Morg can still be played mid, she can just also support. So can Lux. You're actively trying to force Yasuo out of the lane he was designed to be played in, not because the players naturally migrated up there, but because you want him to be elsewhere. Real big difference dude.
He's cancer in the lane and unless you've got a better way to keep him healthy in the game let's hear you make points instead of mashing the downvote button.
: Or he's played Midlane because he was actually designed to go against Ranged champions...
Same as Morgana and Lux who were made to play mid but now fit a different role after being changed overtime? No, let's make a special exception and never change Yasuo.
: Ok... and how would you accomplish that? What sort of change would you make to him that will force him to move to top lane? What sort of change would you do that isn't just going to completely destroy him? Since it's the "easiest way to fix him" you should have an idea of how to accomplish this.
Give him the same set of changes you gave to Irelia. Nerf his base MR to start off with. They'd buffed it a couple of seasons above which made him even more popular in the mid lane. This has been done successfully time and again before. > [{quoted}](name=ZephyrDrake,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=jTQ0EPsn,comment-id=000a,timestamp=2019-06-14T01:36:08.877+0000) > > What sort of change would you do that isn't just going to completely destroy him? Since it's the "easiest way to fix him" you should have an idea of how to accomplish this. I am not here to completely destroy him. This isn't %%%%%%%. Stop making it sound like I am asking for James Deen to pull these nerfs.
: i left mid because of yasuo u want him to come after me wtf dude? hell no
You'd be surprised at how even most top lane matchups go against him.
: He doesn't scale well enough to justify being put so behind by dealing with his top lane matchups.
He scales just as hard as Fiora. Arguably better. He can do top lane just fine. The only champs who would give him trouble are those such as Darius or Renekton who can beat him in the early game over extended trades.
: write a bug report
I am not even sure on whether this is a bug or just my ping. I wish others would shed some light on this.
: Can you explain why you think vlad and yasuo aren't hyper carries? Vlad is a hyper carry, when he's 6 items his stats far outclass any other mage. >Mis lane doesn't have a single hyper carry. None of them an deal enough dps althrough Yasuo does come close. Azir, kassadin for obvious reasons. >In the bot lane it's just Vayne, Jinx, Kaisa, Tristana, and Twitch. Kogmaw for obvious reasons. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- They're all ticking time bomb champions.
They just don't deal enough DPS. Yasuo comes close but he will never out damage a Jax, Yi, or Tryndamere. Or even a Kayle but she's ranged. Kazzadin and Azir aren't hypercarries for the same reason. A carry is someone who deals a shit ton of DPS and carries fights using the same. Kogmaw may be one but I haven't seen a lot of him lately so I wouldn't be in a spot to comment.
: True. Yasuo just doesn't have the right stats to duel most top laners.
Don't get me wrong, that's what I meant to say. He is in the same boat as Fiora and Jax. He does have the stats to do well, but his early game is just too strong for mid lane with all the free babysit mechanics he's given. In the top lane he will have to play safe and use his whirlwind right in order to get kills instead of how he just walks around and jumps in the moment his shield goes up. Yasuo can do well in the top lane if played by a person who has the tiniest bit of patience. Jax and Fiora do it just fine despite playing VERY similar.

Who gives a shit? Zyra and Morgana were made for the mid lane but fit support better. Yasuo fits the top lane better as a bruiser. They should just nerf his MR and send him there where he would be at home.
