: If you don't peel for your ADC: Don't expect them to survive.
I play both ADC and Support and IMO a lot of ADCs mistake being out of position for lack of peels. Out of position does not always mean you're out front, even entering the fight too early can get you blown up regardless of peels. Sometimes you have to hide and wait out ppls cds before showing yourself and getting jumped on.
: GC brought his stupid system from Blizzard to here and has ruined the game for many veterans. How Riot could've hired him is beyond me but I wish he was never hired in the first place.
Well there were masteries before GC came along, but since he's been at RIOT we have suffered his signature "pruning" and "simplifying" changes. For me personally, it was the big support change where they basically got rid of all the good non-AP support builds and made them all scale with AP. Single dumbest thing to happen to bot lane IMO and probably the reason bot has gotten as jacked up as it is now.

: Lowering damage creep will fix almost every problem League of Legends is facing
If you want longer games go play DoTA. 30 minutes is a short game over there.
: Tanks are not fun to play you have no damage you dont survive long your only use is to disrupt damage from the enemy so that your team out puts damage while they are disrupted. While still important they are not strong at their main role (tanking damage) but are short ranged have long cooldowns and dont get to have damage scaling all just for having cc but every mage and adc and assassin gets to have cc and keep their damage and have more range and mobility. while tank cc aka hard cc more powerful versus adcs and mages than adc cc is versus adcs and mages. adcs mage and assassin soft cc roots and slows are just as effective as hard cc if not far more effective when they get to have more damage and better up time and stronger values versus melee champions. and tanks Champions who are the largest champions in the game and most likely to be taller than the walls in the rift are being phased out of being able to dash over walls but marksmen and mages can keep it. If anything they need to make it so nobody has it or stop shitting on tanks
First off I find tanks Extremely fun. Secondly I'm not sure what your XP with this game or other mobas is but generally speaking, tanks have high base damage abilities with moderate to low scaling which they use to abuse carries up until late late game because even with the "no scaling" they do enough damage to burn right through an ADC. For example we'll just use Ashe Vs Malphite: Ashe lvl 18 has 1870 HP. Lvl 18 Malphite has 2104 HP. Seismic shard max lvl does base 270 damage, Ground slam does 200 base damage, unstoppable force does 400 base damage (with a 1:1 AP ratio) that's 870 damage or 46 percent of Ashe's Health bar before we even talk about scaling or the fact that Malphite probably has 3 armor and HP items cutting Ashe's damage by more than half while Ashe does not enjoy the same luxury of being able to build multiple defensive items and still be effective at her role. If you really wanna be a cheeky malphite and 1 shot the adc you can go sorcerer's and a ROA as long as you don't need the magic resist from merc's you can make up the tenacity with other items/pots/talents. In fact, I was sorted into bronze this season and finally decided to climb my way out so I can play with my Gold III who's enlisted and the only way I was able to do it was by just picking a tank every game and actually doing tank stuff while the other teams usually don't have tanks.
: "We don't need tanks we got burst"
haha, sorry for the late reply fellas (or ladies) this was an actual thing a fizz player said to me in-game this morning when I (vayne) adc suggested in lobby that our Kayn should play Darken so we could win (he went shadow assassin of course). He was not saying it ironically. Like seriously what's with people not drafting proper teams anymore? Seems like every other game is all assassins or 4 AP champs on the same team, or 3 people playing adc (im in a game right now with frickin jayce mid, twitch jg, and jhin adc)

: Show the math. Prove it beyond a doubt.
It's really not that hard to see how dealing 500-800 damage per attack twice per second without the ability to miss (at least if you're not blinded) is much much stronger than doing 500-800 damage with 2 or 3 abilities that can be dodged and have 3, 4 or even 5 second cooldowns. Then there's the fact that there's so many great AD builds that have multiple magic resist items in them. If you want to build armor on APC outside of zhonya's the power tradeoff is much much more steep, especially when it's a struggle to even break 500 AP these days.

: Can we stop denying AP is weak?
Its pretty much getting to be like DOTA where the intelligence (AP) heroes are great at the start of the game, but they're pretty much just supports/stun bots when late game the and right clickers and tanks take over.

If ur just playing another game well u got time for 100 matches So what, if you don't have free time you're supposed to rank up to whatever tier once in your LOL life and then never have to work up to that rank ever again? That's not how competitions work. Gold medal Olympians don't start the Olympics every 4 years with gold or silver medals, they have to keep earning them every time. Earn your keep or fall from grace.

That's not how competitions work. Gold medal Olympians don't start the Olympics every 4 years with gold or silver medals, they have to keep earning them every time. Earn your keep or fall from grace. You should just say that that's not how the Olympics works. Plenty of sports stack the odds in favor of the defending champion and/or those favored to win. Like how most playoff systems pit the top seed against the bottom seed. Or when top seed does not have to play the first round at all...

No, this game is going to be around for a while. It's popularity is really a product of American laziness/Mediocrity. DOTA 2 is a far far superior game, but the learning curve is way more steep so no one here wants to play. I do like the direction RITO is taking adding more active items like DOTA has.
: That isn't very extreme. You'll be out of bronze in a few games unless you are actually terrible. Suck it up and play on like the rest of us.

You'll be out of bronze in a few games unless you are actually terrible. Suck it up and play on like the rest of us. The problem is that in my experience every other game in bronze there's a leaver or some kid plays Singed support and intent feeds. If it's true that players of similar skill as me were all placed into bronze maybe it won't be that much of a problem though.

: If you don't bring it up, I don't think anyone will spoil anything. We're playing league. We're not playing some Starwars game where everyone is going to be talking about the movie... If anyone gets a spoiler for starwars I would bet they are the ones who brought up the topic. e.g. "I'm so stoked to see SW7" "oh btw this happens"

: I mean, I can understand, to a point. Like at what point does it not become a spoiler for Harry Potter? I mean the last book was published in 2007 and the last movie was in 2011. Does it make it ok to talk about the series with the ending in mind even though it hasn't had any new development in the past 5 years? What about LOTR? I mean there has to be an end point right? Let me be clear, I'm not advocating for spoilers, I am going to see Star Wars on Sunday myself, but there would be problems with timing IMO.

That's why Riot could determine "reasonable time frame" for each media type. I'd say a movie is "new" for about a month after it comes out I'd give book spoilers probably about the same amount of time TV would be more tricky since some people prefer to binge watch instead of watching week by week, but I'd still say one week or maybe two. Three weeks for video game spoilers. Obviously if you're on the internet you can't expect everyone else to just not discuss Pop culture topics at all, but there should be some established courtesy timetables in which not to spoil things.

: {{champion:11}}
feel like they pretty much gave it away- with the "alpha" thing {{champion:11}}
: Well lets take for example the upcoming MOBA coming into play, HOTS. Been playing since Alpha, and I love the fact if I play a hero long enough, I get a cool skin variation, and at lvl 10, I get a mastery skin, that I still pay for but it looks awesome and people are aware I main that hero. If mastery is only normals, and they linked the Chroma packs to Mastery then I would totally quit playing ranked as much and play normals more so when I unlocked the chroma pack, I would go back to ranked and play ranked with my new addition. I love the idea of the Chroma pack. I absolutely love it. It gives people a way to have their favorite skin and champion feel brand new with the new color change. Its brilliant. But I hate the fact that if I main Fizz for example, I want to feel like a my new Red Fizz means something instead of a bigger wallet. I would totally be ok if it was linked to mastery of a champion and you had to pay for it. That would be brilliant and give me a lot more incentive to play my favorite champion.
Blizzard can afford to give away free skins because they charge so much more for their champions. Riot is MUCH MUCH MUCH more generous with their free in-game currency than Blizz is with theirs.
: When/Why/How did Pentakills become so easy?
But no one knows why they actually did it?
Rioter Comments
: I do anything possible to avoid giving pentas. One time I was at like 15 hp and the enemy ezreal got a quadra. He started chasing me, I knew I couldn't get away so I flashed backwards, next to their team's shen and let his sunfire kill me. LMAO, so damn funny.
Funny enough I also came to the forums today to make a thread about pentas. When the hell did they get so easy? Like the window you have to get one in is like doubel what it was in S1.
UberAffe (NA)
: I'm pretty sure the only reason they don't have that is because it could become a real world trading thing. People could start paying other people to get them runes/ champions. Meaning that people are selling riot products without riot getting anything.
