: Playing as and ADC has been the most frustrating, infuriating role forever.
Only 6 of the 26 bot lane champs (including AP) have a winrate low enough you probably don't want one who isn't a good main on your team. Kaisa is one of them. I almost think the OP is trolling.
: Bad at Ahri
Did you intentionally AFK on today's (10-22) match? My first critique in general is it looks like you've got no idea what to build on a lot of champs. For example, that irelia game where you got sorcerer's shoes and didn't bother with tri force. What? Use sites like these to learn item builds and skill orders. https://www.leagueofgraphs.com/champions/builds https://lolalytics.com/ranked/worldwide/platinum/plus/home/ https://na.op.gg/champion/statistics Problem 2... your CS should be a lot higher. CS is one of the best sources of money in the game. It a lot of matches, your numbers are too low and it looks like you are prioritizing kills over CS. Learn both how to CS and how to manage minion waves. In league, objectives are your primary goal. Minions can set up objectives. The main point of kills is so you can put damage on to objectives, unless the other guy does something incredibly stupid that you can punish him for.

: next season we'll finally have support items that allow all the AD champions to go bot lane
I'm wondering if now we'll get a lifesteal item that heals your nearby allies as well.
: 5 out of my 6 friends (including me) got emotes in the masterwork chest lul
I got the nice try emote. Can't complain, I'm grateful to riot for free stuff.

: pick'em let's discuss
It's about getting people to rage at the fact they got 1-2 wrong in one group, 2-3 wrong in another, and 3-4 wrong in a third.
: Wait, what does ARAM stand for again? I wasn't sure about this.... actually I am not sure about many things in this game... Is this game called Defense of the Ancients, or is it War Craft 3? What is hexakill? Sounds vicious. What does Literally completely different mean? Is it different than just illiterately completely different? Where should I focus my efforts? Why? Where do you focus your efforts? I wish I was smart like you, and I could know lots of important things like what ARAM stands for, glad I bumped into you.
ARAM means all random, all mid. We you asking for a HA mode that you can pick your champ on?
: What would happen if you could pick your Champ in ARAM?
I'd be fine if riot was willing to try a pick your champ on HA option. They could do it as a 2 week experiment to see what happens. Another thing riot could do is give you a list of 3 champs, with 2 guaranteed to be on the current rotation, and let you pick one of those. Another way of doing this is every 3rd or 4th game you are allowed to pick whichever champ you want to with normal ARAM rules for the other 2 or 3.

: Wait...Ashe has a 55% WR???
For everyone complaining about Ashe, Garen's win rate is nearly as high and he's banned over 50% of the time. He's banned more than morgana or yasuo.
Ahri Baka (EUNE)
: Riot buffed her when she had 52-53% winrate for her new skin What were you expecting her winrate to be when she got buffed on high winrate?
I think it was half new skin, half that riot wanted her picked for worlds. She has one of the best ADC ults for pro play. Unfortunately for riot, mage carries and garen-yuumi are a thing.
: Yes. She's really strong. :/ Honestly way too strong and the problem lies mostly in that she can pretty much perma poke most of lane and also in that she doesn't even *have* to win lane in order to do well; the amount of CC and utility she can provide for a team means it doesn't even matter if all she's doing is poking or if she's not doing tons of damage.
She's always had CC and utility. I think if ranger's focus cost 20 mana she'd be fine.
cQaAlma (NA)
: ARAM is really SCEG: Same Champions Every Game thanks to ARAM accounts
As I've said before, I think the less likely you are to get a champ you like and know how to play, the less fun aram is. Some RNG is necessary for the game, that's why weekly rotations are important and help. If there's only 10 champs a person likes and knows how to play (let's say aram account), he's still getting the current rotation of champs more than half the time. Once you consider that not everyone has the same list of champs (even assuming it's 10) you will get a fair variety. If anything, the current rotation seems to be doing the most for seeing champs over and over again, not aram only accounts.
: if your behind as a jungle why not buy a support item since your jungle is screwed anyways. sell that jungle item and get a relic or something at least you wont be in a ditch that way. if they want your jungle and take you outta jungle then let them have it and control what you can do like either supporting mid or top. in other words they can free farm if they want in jungle you just need to ward it and attack them if they try to get your buffs if you can ofc.
They are changing the support items, so I don't think that'll work so well.
Sydney26 (EUW)
: If u were Riot what would u have done for Preseason ???
What I'd have done: * I think first is I would have updated the game's vision and priorities to prevent past mistakes and better focus on counterplay, and mitigate snowballing a little as well as limit how hard any one champ can counter another champ. I'd also put limits on how much a rework can change on a champ unless it's someone like ryze who needs to be rebuilt from the ground up. * Next I'd hire 5 people for gameplay who are each dedicated to one of the lanes and making sure it is healthy as are the champs in it. Then I'd hire a gameplay "editor" whos primary job is to make sure bad ideas like Pike don't make it into game. * Then I think I would have increased the number of champion pods so there are enough of them to do 5 new champs and 5 reworks each year. This would both allow riot to have a steady flow of new content and do a good number of reworks as well. * The first 5 new champs would be **5 for 450** to be released at the same time. I'd have the designers create 5 new champs, one for each lane, designed to teach the fundamentals of that lane and the larger game as much as possible. As the name suggests, they'd release at the 450 price point and with 2 skins for sale instead of the usual 1 to help make up for the cheaper RP cost. They wouldn't be designed to add * Finally I'd start trying to fix top lane and the jungle. Probably have to start with runes and itemization as a whole.

You could try rushing a maw of malmortius for the AD, Resistance and CDR. AP champs tend to be ranged so you have to just get your stun on them and go in. Hmm, they are usually playing around near their tower so after every engage I had to go back to escape tower agro and they punished me much heavier while trying to disengage.

You need to learn wave control. Not only are you at a bit of a disadvantage from being melee in a ranged lane, you are letting them freeze on you. This makes all ins easier on them and makes it easier for you to get ganked. You have no business diving veigar under his tower unless he's just wasted his E, so why are you shoving the lane into him? Even if you weren't playing irelia, you'd be screwed over a lot of the time by letting them freeze the lane.

That would actually prompt the change starting all the way at the top that is needed. I think that's only half the problem. The other half of the problem is there isn't much quality in the d1 to grandmaster crowd. Riot really needs to improve the overall quality of the upper end of the NA ranks. There just isn't enough breadth or depth.
Rioter Comments
: Riot should learn from Hi-Rez about skins (+list of champions with 1000+ days break)
Riot doesn't release skins for champs on which skins don't sell. Sine of those champs needed VGUs first and have gotten them so a new skin should be expected eventually.
grafix (EUW)
: Should NA become a Wild Card region?
After this year, yes. I've got no faith in any of the teams to compete for real now that C9 is terrible. Furthermore riot needs to make it clear to whichever red who is in charge of the LCS that bad performances by all LCS teams at worlds is unacceptable.
: Can we get an F for Cloud 9? Not for Worlds but for...

Only a fool would disrespect cloud 9 for past accomplishments when they had always been our last hope constantly, but only a fool would also think they would do anything this worlds or make really any noise at all.

I seriously don't know what was going though reapereds mind this worlds. Your average gold clash team has a better draft than this This has been in years past and remains C9's fatal flaw more than anything else. I haven't seen teams more consistently determined to throw games at pick/ban than C9 when it counts the most. I kind of agree with blaber playing the g2 game just because G2 is a better team than C9 and frankly they needed to increase randomness because randomness isn't in the better team's favor when they are expected to win. After that Sven should have been playing.

: Recommended jungler anyone?
So you are looking for either fighters or assassins in general. {{champion:59}} - works as a tank, bruiser, or assassin. {{champion:254}} - either a bruiser or assassin, she can carry games {{champion:24}} - a little more gold dependent than the other two because he needs TF, he can also snowball hard {{champion:35}} - takes a lot of work to learn how to play properly {{champion:11}} - if you are silver 1 or lower
: Idea to "buff" top lane? Give top laners last pick in champion select.
I'd argue that jungle should get last pick just because they are expected to fill the team's holes and gank for everyone at all times.
Keiaga (NA)
: Sometimes the only option for you is to hide under tower and hope your team is smart enough to take the empty lane or some other objective
The turret really isn't going to protect you from a 4 man dive, especially if they start juggling tower aggro correctly.
: How do you do Anything in a 4v2 bot lane?
Get out without dying is your best option. If the jungle and mid are hard camping bot then the mid, jungler, and top need to punish them.
: Stuck in plat 3
Are you a top lane main? This will help. The plat section is later on. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INF-c48T7M0 Even if not, some of the things he talks about applies, but champ selection and role specific tips don't apply.

KaiiSama (NA)
: Riot locked and took my account that is my last memory of my passed away brother.
Try to send an email to support and see if you get someone else or ask for a manager. Also, try posting in the player behavior board. The reds that handle CS occasionally read that forum so you are more likely to get their attention by posting there.

: I cant believe it’s an unpopular opinion now, but riot should continue balancing around pro play.
I prefer the days when riot split the two and balanced around high plat... or low diamond in this season's ranks. I think what made this game popular and accessible is that unlike dotas where everything is balanced around pros, and some others where everything was dumbed down, league tried to straddle the line between no skill expression and too volatile skill expression (champs being useless if you aren't a 300 game main). Basically we need more champs that are partway between soraka and riven.
: why is it my neighbors printer gives me extremely high ping?
What kind of ISP are you on, what kind of router do they have, what kind of printer is it, and what are they printing? If you can see it on the network, it kind of sounds like every PC in the neighborhood is trying to talk to it.
Invexes (NA)
: I actually like to think if the ruined king as a massive red herring. The hero fights their way all the way to the throne only to find it empty and long since abandoned. There is now ultimate evil to vanquish. No method to simply stop the islands corruption.
While I don't see this happening, if riot did it right it might work. The easiest option within currently existing canon would probably be something like a rune of undeath was found or brought to the blessed isles and the good guys would be stuck in a catch 22, you can't get to it without dying and if you die while trying to get to it, you become a wraith under its control. Plan B could be something like dark souls: the cycle of death and passing on to the next would has been interrupted and someone has to run the gauntlet to find out what happened and restart the cycle. Since riot is doing more genres of games now, could a soulsborne based on the shadow isles be in our future? Imagine every champ from there except yorick being a boss of some kind. Maybe yorick is an optional boss if you want to go for the true ending. Kalista would be a tough boss. Kathus would be an interesting one because after you kill him, you still have to survive a timer while his spectral form keeps trying to kill you. Hecarim would replace that rolling ball thing from software loves. Lucian and Senna would be the heart breaking fight and would be the 1v2 one from DS1. This because you have kill the major wraiths and since Senna is one of them and Lucian isn't going to lose her, you've got do deal with them both. And at the very end you've got the ruined king. After you beat him, you find the shocker: behind his throne room you see lamb laying on the ground with wolf holding her down. What happened was the in ancient past the blessed isles had took 2 different things (life and death) and fused them into one using a rune they discovered. Originally lamb was dominant so the blessed isles had a golden age. Then the ruined king upset the power and the shadow isles formed. It's possible that the current ruined king wasn't the original one and it is possible there have been several changes in the past as to which one has been in power. Then the player gets up to 5 choices depending on what he's done: 1. Restore lamb and the blessed isles 2. Keep the status quo and become the new ruined king. 3. (has to be unlocked) something kind of sad 4. (has to be unlocked) something selfish and grandiose. 5. (has to be unlocked after you've gotten the 4th ending) a rejection of 4 that breaks the cycle. If people like the idea, I'll let y'all know what 3-5 are.
Rioter Comments
: We're changing RP's name
Why not just affix a real world price to every item instead of having currencies at all?
: And nearsighted players fail to understand balance, again. If you don't enjoy counterpicking, then league isn't a game for you. You can't have both character variation AND perfect balance across all matchups. You begin by all the wrong assumptions, chiefly, that the game has to be decided by a certain isolated matchup. No, it doesn't, top lane exists to apply specific types of pressure, namely, splitpushing pressure and Herald pressure, while also looking to turn fights or ward caught out allies by TPing. The balance changes that were just announced DO MAKE top lane more impactful and tanks more viable, the question now lies with how top laners need to be separately tweaked so that most of them can exist as viable picks into certain comps.
I think the problem is less that counterpicks happen and more that you are too hard countered and frankly there aren't enough "safe" champs to pick before the other top laner.

The jungler usually has to path to the bot side unless top has snowbally champs.

I'm not against metal, I just don't like how it was done. If it was integrated with him as a part of his arm and not something he was holding, maybe with shadows around it, I think I'd like it more. If they wanted to do a full on robot like FNAF, I think it'd work.

: What if instead of game... We will see him in anime? 😲
It would probably have to be an anime with a horror element and not the announced one. Now it could be full on horror, an overlord inspired anime with the Ruined King as the overlord, vampire hunter D where there's this one dude who's really good at hunting the wraiths, or a lighter style of show like demon slayer that toes into horror when it needs to.
: I think the Ruined King is one of those mythic characters that shouldn't ever be a champion in the game. There needs to be some grandiose, mythical beings in the lore that transcend regular levels of legend and myth, and he is one of them. He can appear as some kind of PVE boss like Vilemaw was, but I am wholly against them releasing him as a champion. I think it would greatly reduce his impact on the lore if we can play him.
I really do see your point and totally understand why you'd want him to either not appear or be a PvE boss at most. However when you see things like the trundle and varus reworks so they could have stories going forward, and when you see evelynn getting a proper story, when you see Senna added to the game it gets hard to deny the direction the team and story is moving in. However, there is something Reav3 can do to enhance TRK's impact on the game at least and perhaps the overall lore if not the canon one... CertainlyT comes out of retirement for one last champion.
Rioter Comments
: Roadmap! Oct. 2019
Not sure if I'll be playing any of those champs. While I'm glad Senna is getting added to the league, part of me is wondering if she'll be the same kind of disaster that pyke is. Not a fiddle or voli player either. I'm not a top so the juggernaut is probably off of my list as well. That leaves the lunari ADC. The biggest hole in 2020's line up is no mid laner. It'd be nice to see a new battlemage who can't be pushed bot so easily.
