: Don't use autism to describe stupidity or ignorance please.
I have a mild case of autism, so I feel like I am allowed to use it jokingly. Of course you did not know that so it's okay.
: Using heal as soon as healing wasn't wasted from it, so that it'd be up again sooner.
Now that I think about it I use to do that with ignite lol. A little more useful than heal but meh lol. Also the first skin I bought was a yi one, and for some reason someone in a game was like, "why would you buy that skin?" And I have no idea why but it made me have an existential crisis about why I bought the skin and was it actually useful. I didn't buy another one for a long time after that. And to this day I have no idea why.

Well never know, but by not flaming them back I controlled myself and even if we ended up losing that game I know that I did the right thing in not saying anything back to them. Yeah solo queue really is a reactionary experience. Unless you have telepathy, there's no way to know what another person is thinking. So you almost have to know before you make a play, can I do this on my own and be successful, or will I need help. If the first answer is yes, then go for it, but if not, then I probably shouldn't assume my team knows my plan and shouldn't expect them to know to follow a lead. You really have to just look at everything around you and put yourself in the best position so that way when they answer no to that first question but still follow through, you'll be in a spot to help them. I'm trying man. And I will take your advice to the bank for sure.
Wow I couldn't have really said it better myself. I think that's one of the biggest reasons people flame others. They go in 1v3 and die, then flame their teammates for not following up. I just want to tell people that we can't read your minds. We have no idea that you have planned out your engagement in your head, with you engaging, malph flashing in over a wall and ulting over another wall to get a 3 man knockup that our Yas can instantly pick up on and press r to clean up. Like we have no idea what you're going to do. Yeah after many games played and knowing your teammates kits you can guess at what and how they will react, but you never know if that follow-up is coming or not. The moment you go in they could be looking at the mini map somewhere else. Or tabbing and checking out enemies items, or hell their cat might have just jumped up on their keyboard causing them to use a skill with a longer cool down.

Yeah, I guess it started because I felt like they were right ya know. That all I'll ever be is trash stuck in elo hell with them for all eternity, so I auditioned for the role and excelled at it.
That's where they're wrong though buddy. Like I said, you are your only constant. Continue to improve yourself and you will excel. You've already taken the biggest hurdle in admitting that you were at fault. You can't control other people's action but you can control your own, no matter how hard it may seem. And it will get easier as time goes. Literally the last game I played last night was my plat 3 promos. I was zed lanning against reneketon. I recalled and he shoved in lane and roamed bot and picked up a kill. Bot lane immediately flamed me for "getting out roamed, and having lower cs than him." I wanted to explain what had just happened and why he roamed while I was just getting back to mid. But I bit my tongue so to speak and just focused on catching back up. Luckily bot was able to carry with some additional help from me and jg. I could have flamed them back and that may or may not have tilted them. Well never know, but by not flaming them back I controlled myself and even if we ended up losing that game I know that I did the right thing in not saying anything back to them.
: An Open Apology to the Community and Riot Games
I will say that this is one the first board posts I've made, been playing league on and off since 2011. I was hardstuck gold for the majority of this season and I never understood why I wasn't improving until I actually looked at myself. I would give first blood or a teammate would make a mistake and I would low-key flame them. Nothing along the lines of total toxicity but just enough to where I see that I myself probably tilted my own teammates. A Mia ping when their laner roams and ganks my lane or a "thanks for not following them and letting me get 2v1ed", etc. Stuff like that. I don't know when it happened exactly but I stopped myself. When teammates die I let them know that it's ok. That it's just a death or two. Or I point out that since their Jung ganked bot, ours secured his entire top side jg, or rift herald, or something along those lines. Even if I'm getting flamed for something I simply just don't type anything back. I look at the map, objectives, different things like that and try to figure out what "I" need to do. And since then I've been able to climb up to plat 3. I guess the point I'm trying to say is to move on and worry about yourself. Because you are the only constant in your games. Yeah you will feed every now and then or a teammate will feed every now and then, but just let it go. Continue to move on and continue to improve yourself both in the game and outside. You have a really tough game or get flamed for something you did, take a 5-10 minute break before queing up again. Go smoke a cigarette, get a snack, watch a YouTube video, literally anything to get your mind off of what just happened and I promise it will help you in the long run.
: I've always wanted this, and asked for it before too (no answer from any rioter tho {{item:3070}}), I'd kill for my banner/background to be Cosmic Reaver Kass to match my current icon (or whatever would match the icon I'd be currently using).
Man, it would be awesome if a Rioter commented on this just to say if they have had any thoughts on even trying to implement this or not. I think it would be a really nice quality of life update, and shouldn't be too hard to implement. I mean, all the work on the backgrounds are already done, all they would have to add is like a profile background page where you select a champ you own, then chose from if you want the default look or to use a skin, chromas would probably be left out but I don't really see that as too much of a problem. Now that I think of it, they wouldn't even have to add a new menu. Just add a button onto the champion screen, the one where you can browse through their skins and see their abilities; one that says something like : Make this my Profile Background image : and BAM!
: One of the things about Ultimate skins is that when you equip their icons, you get to make your profile show that Ultimate skin. That coolness would be taken away if we had as much control over our profiles as you are suggesting.
Well I'm not suggesting that you get to change it to any skin. If anything they could implement it to where you can only change your background to champs/skins that you own. That would give people with ultimate skins the background that they want, and it could also make it to where you don't have to have that icon equipped if you don't want it.
