: So what happened to Xayah?
As a Xayah main. I still love Xayah, but her core item was Essence Reaver. She obviously still works with the items we have now, but thats at the cost of utility. Before the Crit revert, stormrazor was getting a place in my heart tbh. Kiting felt extremly smooth, but the early game was complete shit with the build path. 4 Item slots that can't be built into anything just sucks. Now we have an even newer version of essence reaver... And quite frankly, it sucks on Xayah. In my opinion the cdr scaling with crit was the best part of it. The Mana part was also useful, but it doesn't matter when you can't even use your abilities that often. Her ult cd is just too high for many situations. I'll try to find builds for her and post them on the boards for people to try if they're bored. I have: Lethality Xayah, (Keystone is Lethal Tempo for quick feathers) Can be played on: adc, jgl and mid. Go for long sword first or dorans and just run around bursting everyone down. Buy typical lethality items and black cleaver. On-hit Xayah, (Keystone is Fleet Footwork). Played: Adc or top. Meant to be a tank shredder. First item is bork into runaans (which also is good for your W, gives REALLY good waveclear) You can buy IE if you want to, but BC is a good option for good tankieness. Maybe buy Rageblade for faster feather procs. Frozen Xayah, (Keystone is Glacial Augment). Played on top, since you won't be having too much damage to survive on bot. Frozen Mallet, BORK and everything that can tilt people. - More builds to come.

It doesn't matter what game they play, they always will have a huuuuge viewer count. Thats why its stupid to judge a game by how many viewers it gets. You can't fuck with giants like Ninja, Dr. D and etc. Look at Forsen for example. Atlas had 20k viewers overall, but when Forsen streams, it has 100k. Most of the people watching him don't even play the game, they just watch cuz he's entertaining. That applies to all streamers that have that many viewers.

Its still quite good on champions that chase. I think it works well with champions that take Fleet Footwork. It might be really good on Ashe, Graves, maybe Nasus if ur funny. Gotta try it out more, but not limit it to adc's alone.

The system doesn't give you stuff for thing. i got around a 60% win ratio yet i lose much more LP than I gain, i went 6-2 in promos and got B3 (i was S4 last season) while my duo placed much higher than me despite us being in the same games. What sense does that make. the new ranked system is not the same as the old at all. In the old i could be ona losing streak and lose about 18lp per game and if i win I get 21lp, which helped me climb, and eventually i got 24lp per win and lost 16 per loss but my winrate was much much lower. The new ranked system really punishes players overall
From Riots "Ask Riot" thread about the new ranked system. How does the provisional system work? Because I won more games than my friends in placements and got placed in bronze 1, and they all got placed in silver. But I used to be in silver last season. During placements, we consider a few pieces of information: your past rank, your MMR, and your win-loss record. When you play your first game of the season, we give you a provisional rank based on where you ended last season—you should expect it to be about a tier lower. Then, during the rest of your placement games, your LP gains and losses will largely depend on your MMR and your record against the teams you face. Any or all of those variables could be different from one player to the next, and if they are, that could explain why you got a different result. You’ve got this though; good luck on your climb—I’m sure you’ll be Gold in no time! RIOT SAPMAGIC

Why are you not banned from boards yet, wtf.
Rioter Comments
: LP Gains are absolutely broken (potentially b/c of Positional Ranking?)
As far as I know, the LP gains are hardly linked to how well you've played in your placements (Win to lose ratio). As far as I've seen, the base LP would be 21. If you win all 8 you might get 30 LP. (I saw cowsep get 30 LP per game up to diamond). I might be wrong with that theory, but it seems really possible.
: I have 9 gemstones, what hextech skin should I get?
In my opinion, the best hextech skins are: Hextech Renekton Hextech Poppy Hextech Kog'Maw and Lancer Hecarim And because of my own personal bias, I'd say go and get hextech poppy.
: I have been a Silver player since 2010. Never reached Gold. Should I pay for a Coach to teach me?
No, don't you do it. Its a waste of money. The coach will tell you what you can learn for free on youtube. If you want to get out of silver, you first of all, need to have a basic understanding of the game. You also need to have a basic understanding of what to do in your role. Basics: - You need to know when to rotate - You need to know how to act in lane - You need to know what objectives to get at the best possible time - You need to know what items to buy and what runes to take against specific match ups. - You need to know what you have to do when you have a lead. etc. etc. There are a lot of people that don't know the basics and are stuck in silver because of that. The basics that you **need** to know may vary on the champion you play. Talking about champions, its better to master 1 champion and main him. The others are pocket picks, incase of your main getting banned or w/e reason there is. Take Trynd for example. He is good at splitpushing, cuz his ult gives him a huge 1v1 potential. He can take towers while getting attacked by 5 people, because of his ult. Trynd is very good at dueling as well. If you want to main Trynd, which isn't a bad choice, since you can get to master and beyond with that champ, it might help to watch Trynd masters play him and learn from them. Take Fogged. He streams regualy and has a youtube channel based around Tryndamere. You can learn alot from him if you want to learn stuff from him. If you master champions based on that mentallity, you can get out of silver easily. Another thing that helps, is just to play when ur not toxic/tilted. Negative emotions bottled up nerf your gameplay ***EXTREMLY***. Just play something else or listen to chill music that you like. Infact, just listen to music in general. It helps you alot and makes you feel hyped. If you're one that can't control his chat, then it may be better for you to disable all chat or just disable chat in general. You don't need to write stuff. Pinging is enough most of the time. If it helps you, there are also sites like [mobalytics](https://mobalytics.gg/). They show you the things that you are bad in. They give you tips on how to get better in those things and even link you tutorials on how to get better in them. Those all are things that are important in League. If you know those basics and memorize them and you feel determined to master certain champions and roles, then go for it. You'll be out of silver in no time.
: does ranked have a point anymore
The new LP gain/loss works almost the same as the old one. The only diffrence is that there is splash now. If you gain 16 lp and lose 16 lp, then that's because you should be where you are. If you play better than iron 3, then you should be able to climb higher, even if you lose as much LP as you gain. Infact, if it really was incredibly unfair, then you'd lose more than you would gain. You're the one that has to show the system that ur better than the elo ur in. The system doesn't give you stuff for thing.

So I just read everything this discussion had to offer. And safe to say OP is in the right. Trying something new in normal is obviously considered trolling by the OP, but its far away from **Inting**. Its as if you people didn't even read what he said. Jesus fucking Christ.
: i am bronze V in season 9 without playing promo's.
1. There is no Bronze 5 anymore 2. You played 1 game of Zilean 3. You can now see what the lowest rank is, that you can get ranked into. (Provisional Rank). Its the lowest one possible and you can't lose LP in your promos. You work up from there. Its made for more clarity and less panic over "What Rank do I get?".

I played dota when it was a wc3 mod for years so yeah i think i remember accurately what league was like in the beginning. what was more fun than an amumu with 5 capes stacked lol. maybe the game was unbalanced but when everything is broken nothing is broken you know? people actually tried new things and pushed champions into whatever they could to make it fit. now the entire game is a strictly enforced meta and if you deviate from it at all, you are so far and beyond behind everyone else that youre essentially trolling even if you arent. it just sucks to see all of the creativity we used to be able to employ in this game get sucked right the fuck out of the game. why do you fanboys immediately hate the shorts off of anyone who criticizes the state of the game? you want a detailed post with hard numbers detailing why this game just sucks to play now? who am i rick sanchez holy fuck im not going to get out my whiteboard here. its just straight up unfun, and im done playing. uninstalled, support ticket in for an account deletion. just throwing my two cents out there before i go.
>desk over and rage out... id look him in the eye and id say "hey fuck you buddy". if im not allowed to do that then honestly oh well, i dont fit into this community then and thats on me. hence why im leaving lol 1. There is a big diffrence between rl and ingame. 2. You go to your boss and tell him what the hell your "buddy" just said and did. He will 100% get fired. 3. You also don't have to say anything to him. Its you who to decides it. 4. You don't **HAVE** to answer anyone in league. You can, but not in an harassing manner. This isn't the kindergarden. You can't say "He started it" and hope that everything you did wasn't bad. This isn't exclusive to League, but to literally everything. Don't be toxic, don't get punished. End of story.
: League will die within a year or two: here's why!
>You're not allowed to do literally anything off-meta. (Intentionally feeding?) You are allowed to play off-meta. >You're not allowed to play poorly at any point in time. (Intentionally feeding!) You are allowed to play poorly at some point. >You're not allowed to tell someone who is being a shithead that they are indeed a shithead. (Harassment/ Verbal abuse/ Hate speech) It depends on how you do it. If you do the same harassing he does, than ur not better and deserve to be banned. Best way is to just not say anything, but mute and report that guy you think is a shithead. >You're not allowed to say that a match is impossible to win, "please lets just ff they are up 20 kills and 7 towers" vote failed 4/5 (Negative attitude/ Verbal abuse) You are allowed to do it, just not in the worst possible way. You can also just not say it, since that will change literally nothing. There is a diffrence between "I think this game is lost" and "please lets just ff they are up 20 kills and 7 towers" The first one is an opinion, the 2nd one is you acting as if it is a fact. If your team doesn't surrender, than obviously they disagree with you and think that you're in the wrong. You can't change that. Anyway both are negative, just don't constantly harass people with your negative behaviour. >You're not allowed to have any fun whatsoever. (literally the meta for like 3 seasons lol riot please just release LoL classic) Please don't make League Classic. I'm 100% sure that you never played in beta/season 1 or 2. Every Champion was op. Strats for champs that could go invisible were cancer. I don't want to die against a Twitch and Evelynn that buy multiple sunfires and just eat your ass. I don't want to have a game with an incredible amount of bugs again. Yes it was a good time and it is nostalgic to think about it today. But League back in the day really wasn't that well designed. You'd have fun for a short time I think. There ofcourse was no real meta. It was a new genre that got born of DOTA and everyone was shit in the game. Every champ went to any lane/role and everyone just had fun doing it. >You're not allowed to ask someone to do something differently. (VERBAL ABUSE HE ASKED ME TO USE MY TRINKET TO WARD A BUSH REEEEEEEEEE) That's a straight up lie. In what situation did that happen to you? How did you do it? If you verbally abuse someone while asking him to do something diffrently, then yes, that is verbal abuse. If not, then that should be no problem. >You're not allowed to say anything to anyone on your team that can even be construed as criticism or you get chat restricted.. so why not just turn the fucking text chat off for the entire player base riot honestly its just a trap at this point. You can say critisism, but you can't insult your team. Critisism isn't "Oh y'all are so shit, why did you play like that omg". That is verbal abuse and that's how you get chat restricted. Now, in what way had all of your complaints to do with Riot or League? As I've read it, its not that League or the Community is the problem and the downfall of League, but you. That's why you got chat restricted. You are the problem and if you don't change you get banned and probably make this game a bit less toxic. Stop crying about the game and the community and start looking at yourself for some change.

The mains give her a good w/l ratio. 3. There are more than enough people hating Riven for what she is. Not Yasuo lvl, but she's up there.

I know that I can reach plat, since I've reached it on other accounts too. I've also noticed that there are alot of smurfs coming up. (I know that they are smurfs, since the accounts didn't get used for years and suddenly come back with a 80% winrate on 1 champion). So I had to face those too, which is kinda shitty.
