: Why I Hate Ranked - Episode III
I honestly just think that most of them just throw out wtf ever pops into their head, as long as it means they didn't screw up.
: I had like exacly same story In platinum elo with crazy galio mid that finally went afk
See? Annoying as hell, ain't it? I am now resorting to cheesy champions and tactics to get me out of this silvery hell.

: Honestly "hyperbole" shouldn't be allowed on this board. People do not understand the difference between "hyperbole" and "straight up dishonesty". Then they use hyperbole as an excuse when in reality they were trying to tell a bold faced lie. This board has demonstrated it is not responsible enough to handle a basic concept like hyperbole without abusing it. The other thing that really irks me is that everything is massively sensationalized. I'm not sure if I'm watching Fox or NBC or if I'm on the LoL boards half the time
The problem is that many times people actually are using hyperbole, the point lying elsewhere in the post, and yes... you made my point for me beautifully... "These people are too stupid to use things correctly, they are just all liars." is basically what that just read.

Yeah, as someone who is having to grind up through silver, for the first time since Season 4, due to one of my accounts getting hacked and dumping rank? Silver is hell.

: Some things should be stated as opinions or as personal experiences, rather than as facts
Most of the "facts" posted here are actually feelings, once taken apart. Even stats, as some of the most brutally over powered champions enjoy very low pick rates (and win rates, as those are calculated across all tiers) until the next season when some streamer picks them... which means that most champion stats are actually simply feelings. The problem isn't when people state opinion as fact. The largest problem on the boards is when someone uses hyperbole or exaggeration, with absolutely no indicators that they are attempting to express fact (and often even say it is exaggeration), and other people grab onto that small aspect of their post and only wish to talk about it. The sheer amount of anal retention, mixed with failures of reading comprehension, make the boards an occasionally toxic place.

: You literally suggested they go int a kill.
: That's not great advice. Dying once on purpose, if it's determined to be intentional will immediately result in punishment.
Only if you actually say something, and charge the enemy team. I am not saying to just go int for a minute. Then again It may be one game in 100 that I actually start to get tilted, soooo...
: Lie. Even OP said it was in Normals. This kind of situation simply doesn't happen in Ranked.
Dunno. I found 3 bronze 4- on my team while I am dragging my other account back into gold.

: best champs worth maining atm
Okay. So you play Olaf, and want to stay in the same genre, but just not Olaf...: {{champion:266}} {{champion:122}} {{champion:240}} {{champion:150}} {{champion:120}} {{champion:102}}{{champion:254}} {{champion:77}} Tanky bastards who, in the right situation, deal monster damage. These are all AD, so similar builds you are comfortable with, but across this spectrum you can find someone for any lane and role... except ADC. They all have strengths and weaknesses. Example: - Vi tends to blow squishies in half, and she always closes the gap. All in champ, tends to die after she blows someone up. - Hecarim is a monster with awesome jungle clear. Whoever he charges is likely dead, but he is another All In. - Gnar blends ranged poke with angry CC monster. Sadly difficult to play for most as he goes from annoying squish to monster tank... and back again. - etc I stayed away from Garen because he gets boring and will end up reworked soon. Also kept away from Urgot because his itemization is extremely limited until Maple fixes his classification from ranged to melee for items.
: I actually managed to reach a checkpoint after going to honor level 1 !!! I am actually improving!!!
Yeah yeah, people are anal about wording. Advice - don't let people get to you by being overly analytical dicks.

: She needs to shield/heal someone else to trigger the on-hit boost of ardent for herself, and she's often in a solo lane, and people generally prefer being the full AS late game hypercarry rather than supportive (as various more directly on-hit or AP items are going to be better boosts to her dps). It's a good item on a support kayle, and is key in certain boosting strategies where theres a reliable yi or similar she can focus on buffing, but people tend to focus on their own potential to solo carry and a supportive item isn't what people are inclined towards there (and if someone was keen to support the team, theres probably better champion picks anyway).
Huh, I must be weird lol. I tend to try to build my champions to the greatest benefit to both myself AND them.

: Ezreal
He can be very good, both built AD and AP, so you have options in playstyle on how you want to play him. Incidentally, a lot of people get into the trap of just using him for his Q, so beware... it SEEMS to be his highest damage output, but if he is AP his W and E hit very hard as well, and if he is AD you need to remember to auto attack :p

: Think about one change that would completely destroy the meta as we know it
: "They are focused on pro play" line needs to end
Maple has explicitly stated they focus on Pro. Argue with the Devs.

Yep, and Jannna adds damage to her own attacks ANYWAY.

Ahh, missed that part. In that case all ranged are negated. Going with Garen

He plays safe with only W. Poke and dip, poke and dip. Going Mega Gnar he now stuns them down.
: Woah ok cool
Yeah, lol. Ardent Censor is a monster if they can run Attack Speed anyway, and have built in slows or stuns. It even works on Trundle or Kennen. With LuLu it amps her shield, her self healing, AND works off 3 of her abilities.
: Yea. Lulu top is fine as long as you have a tank support and jg. If your team need an engage tank and you still pick this its kinda trol
Indeed. That is generally how these off meta picks work. They can still perform their job just fine, as long as wherever they are going has been swapped with someone else who can do it. Btw if you yank Phantom Dancer, run her Resolve for Font/Crysallis (secondary precision for Legend Alacrity and Triumph) and grab an Ardent Censor... her Q now lets her heal with attacking, and it procs Censor's AS buff for herself as well. It also means she can still support others, while giving her even more lane sustain and dominance.
: Yes. I may need help selecting the optimal runes for champions when doing this.
I have all of the champions. I get off work at 5pm. Also, the answer is {{champion:150}} Tried this before.

: Why do people use quotes when they aren't quoting anyone?
A lot of times they are simply using it as a form of formatting, mostly because they arent **aware** _of other kinds of formatting._ 1. For example. For another example: - they could just do this. --------- Basically, forum quotations are just a form of formatting. Most of the times. Some are just full of shit.
: Lulu TOP is still good.
What you will discover is that most people will argue anything outside the Meta. This is why RIOT had to officially declare Off meta choices were not against the rules.

: For that they what were designed for i dont know. For me the ADC class is the great risk great reward class of the game with a double edged sword type of play. With great power great responsibility type of thing.
ADCs -SHOULD- do a metric fuck ton of damage... what they should not do is threeshot anyone in their path, which is ultimately the issue atm. They should deal big damage, and take big damage, but their damage output currently is too high due to their items.
: I think that ADC's skills are tools to help them achieve that "just click on champions" state, help them through the game and give them an identity. AUTO ATACK - Thats their job, they were created to do just that, and only that. Provide their team with the damage needed to win... If they stop doing that, they will stop being ADC's (Attack Damage Carriers) they will become AD CASTERS and will have to rely more on their skills. The diference is that an ADC build glasscannon and an ADC CASTER build survival items. That is too diferent things. The sentence u use "If you make the mistake of getting in their range you simply die" its the play style of an ADC in all minutes of the game. In normal situations u can kill one adc isolated with any other class (even if they have 2 items or 3) by bursting them or sustaining through their damage.
To just move around the map right clicking is NOT what they were designed for initially, which is why the ADCs that are left in the dirt on the oldest ADCs, who were designed around the concept that their skills should be their power.

If they are surprised, maybe they should actually pay attention? I dont even like to play mages and I saw this coming as soon as I glanced at the notes.

- 8 years of game play experience. - 6 accounts - One Account for ARAM, one for TT, one for Normals, 3 for ranked. Go sit down.
: Why do you want to nerf marksmans ?
The problem isn't the ADCs themselves. As I have said about 1000 times - it is their items - items that make their skills worthless, because they do vastly more damage by right clicking on someone and... profits. ADCs have become boring to play because of that, their skills being ditched mid game to just click on champions. They are boring to play AGAINST because if you make the mistake of getting in their range you simply die.
: "hey i feel like playing a couple of arams"
As this account has only played ARAM for.. a long time... I can honestly tell you that ARAM is not random. It chooses first from Top Pick Tiers from ranked, then FTP, then it chooses random. The odds reduce each step down. The "explanation" I was give last year is that: "People don't really want to be stuck with unpopular champions," and that was a Dev response.

: Fair enough, but what about the people that share a house with other players, (say for example students). And what about the people that search IP ban and find the ways to still get around it. In the end, an IP ban is just a good way to punish the people around the troll in my opinion.
Well. A host mask ban works different than an IP Ban. You have to change the modems firmware, by force. Very few VPNs mask it, and those you have to pay for that do. However... multiple player households IS an issue, no solution is perfect.

: So, WoW or FFXIV... which is goinna be more fun?
- WoW is cartoony hell hole of elitists that spend more time on their PC than with their family. - FF is problematic and has a serious grinding obsession. Go play games such as Everquest 2 or any other DayBreak games. They used to be SoE and really started onling MMORPGs. (As in EQ 1 came out years before WoW, and STILL HAS PLAYERS.)

: I am glad that (and maybe I'm wrong here) this is the first time that Riot has acknowledged that the *progression* isn't well conveyed to people. I'm not sure I'd say making any more signs of progress is necessary, but making it clear to people with low honor when they are not progressing and/or at least explaining that valid reports slow honor somewhere in client would be nice :)
Tell me about it. I am averaging 30-50 honors a day and haven't moved from 2 2/3 in over a month. No punishments or warnings, it just never moves lol. Weird that I'd be honored near every game, but am also being reported?
