: Bronze, Choosing a Main, and ADCs: Do Marksman Carry the Match?
> I'm just going to play what allegedly will get me out Aside from easy champs, and J4 counts, nothing will get you out aside from you. >what can I do about it if I'm sticking with J4. 1. learn jungle pathing, or learn how top lane trades work and get a lot of CS _during laning_. 2. map awareness, where are all 5 enemy champs and who on your team is alive and in what condition are they? 3. learn how to gank at 2-3 4. you should probably gank when your ult is up, even if you blow a flash, you can gank the lane again a minute later while it's still down. 5. learn who not to gank for (people who are feeding, champs with low damage, or no CC) 6. learn which champs need to snowball (riven, nasus) and gank top accordingly 7. focus non-dragon, non-baron objectives. 8. understand that the game will probably be won/lost early on, even if it goes 50 minutes. 9. learn how to close out games. Hint, if you aren't focusing on the nexus you are doing it wrong. 10. change up your itemization according to what the team needs out of you. If they need damage, go full damage. If they need tank, go bruiser or tank. 11. Learn about your champ and his power spikes 12. learn where to ward and how to clear wards. Also, your wards early on are valuable, don't waste them. 13. learn what you need to do after laning ends 14. League is about minions, don't forget that. Even if you are a jungler, don't do jungle camps if there are minions you can safely take or a lane you need to push out. 15. learn to set up a slow push and learn when you need to shove lanes in. 16. learn to keep a track of the enemy jungler, think where he would want to go next, and react accordingly. >Am I just bad At bronze 5, you are bad at everything. Pick one thing and work on it for a few games until it's better, then pick something else. Gitting gud is going to be a long term process. Try recording your games, thinking about what you want to do next and try to think about what the enemy is doing and what he wants to do.

Dunno. There's also anti-trust laws that technically need to be considered, especially since disney is a tyrant to the theaters, but the government rarely does its job there.

: Riot August is designing champions again
Dunno what to say about that. I like Vi and Jinx, but I'm not a fan of the other three.
: We had this conversation more than 8 years ago. There are absolutely improvements you can keep making to matchmaking, but having an algorithm guess how much you contributed to a win I don't think is a very promising approach.
How about an algorithm which can tell that the guy with 27 deaths probably lead to your team's defeat? Other than that, I kind of agree. I was watching a Neace coaching video and one team lost a 30 minute game because of a 3v3 at the dragon pit that went badly at the 10 minute mark. I don't think a computer can really figure that sort of thing out too well.

Rothj (NA)
: Any suggestions on how to actually get out of lane as sona?
Have you tried getting a {{item:3070}} after your {{item:3098}}/{{item:3096}}? That's pretty much what the pros and high elo players are doing now with her. Another issue is you are starting to get into the elos where playing meta champs matter. She's got a lot of issues against thresh, alistar, leona, and blitzcrank. My suggestion if tear doesn't work for you is to switch over to Janna or Nami.

: How to use the drive thru. A helpful guide for those who just can't seem to grasp the concept
Also turn off your brights so you don't blind the people in front of you if they happen to glace at one of their review mirrors. NotSid, I take it you had a rough night recently.
: Lee sin because they will buff him soon. Or some boring ass tank like Rammus.
Lee Sin is a bad recommendation unless the player is plat+. He's just too mechanically intense to be played well and too many junglers in the game don't know about early game pressure.
: Which Junglers are worth maining to climb with?
{{champion:59}} - works in every meta and can go from full damage to bruiser to full tank. Gives your team initiation and a bit of CC. Is able to gank before he has his ult. Unless riot nerfs him into oblivion, it's never a wrong answer to main him.
: Sona's Mana Costs
IMO get manaflow band on her and rush a tear after your support GP item.

: So how did riot do last year on new champs and reworks
It's been a day so time for my own thoughts. **New Champs** * {{champion:498}}: B+ I really like her theme, kit, and how she's pre shipped with Rakan. * {{champion:497}}: B- I like him overall, but as a support main I don't see myself playing him. * {{champion:141}}: C+, a little too anime and ediger than what was expecting. I'm a little mad he could be an assassin that has an AD and AP option but evelynn can't be. Not fond of darkin. * {{champion:516}}: No bleepin' clue. I know he exists, but that's about it. * {{champion:142}} : A- assuming riot can get her balance issues worked out. I think CertainlyT made a unique kit and the people working on her character and theme did a great job. **Reworks** * {{champion:19}}: A, he looks right and plays right. The best rework of the year. * {{champion:6}}: C+ he looks okay and he plays okay. Nothing great but he passes. * {{champion:3}}: D- his visual theme was a shock and by the time that wore off, riot broke his kit in time for the worlds patch. IMO worlds would have been so much better if galio and ardent censor weren't a thing. * {{champion:28}}: F- is too high a mark for this POS. I hate her new theme. I hate her new kit. I hate that she lost the AD/AP option. I hate her lore even more than the non-lore she used to have. This champion is a clinic on how not to do a rework. Revert the VGU and start over at a later date.
: Best VGU of 2017
I think WW was the only good one. Urgot was okay in that it modernized him, but I don't think it was particularly good or bad... he looks okay and he plays okay. Galio's main problem at launch was that he looked wrong, but by the time the new look had grown on me, riot turned his gameplay into a dumpster fire. Evelynn's rework was and is a complete mistake and riot should be ashamed of releasing that steaming pile of poop. Just revert her and start over.
: How do you like your coffee GD? (or tea if that is your thing)
Don't drink coffee because the smell makes me sick. I drink tea usually with milk and sugar.
: Someone proposed that the issue with MF is her double tap and ultimate, not her E
I think MF's ult is fine, riot just needs to give her a more ADC like passive.
: Who's Your Favorite Champion?
{{champion:16}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:103}} in some order. {{champion:102}} is just outside of my top 3.

: General Question: Why do we have this question like 5 times a year? And to answer your question: I'd say Kinda hard to avoid it, But its mostly because down to it, Its just so generally known and accepted. Kinda like the Kitsune or general "Technology is all that'll advance the human race"

: First League game in like a month and my team was really mean to me
: For it's damage spike, I always thought the price was worth the wait for mid-late game(5th, 6th) item. Me? I run Future's Market 90% of the time so I go into debt for that shit more times than not lol.
Games don't last until the 5th or 6th item anymore.

: If Ahri gets a new skin what skin should it be?
There are 2 rules for Ahri skins. 1. Ahri is always going to get a new skin. 2. See rule one. Things I'd like to see: * pool party ahri * M'ahri Christmas * Dragon Sorceress Ahri * Floof Queen Ahri * something with a blue color theme * an anti-blood moon skin where she's wearing one of the japanese fox masks instead of having fox ears * Fox Wedding ahri
: I'd rather have enchanters op than leona
Yeah, if leona's team has any other CC at all, not being able to do anything is terrible.
: I agree with what you're saying... until Leona ends up being a top lane boss melee champion like Nautilus.
Part of me would prefer it if Leona was reworked into a top/jungle bruiser.

She can never be that because she has no waveclear. Nautilus top worked because not only was he a god, but he can clear waves incredibly fast. Leona when she's strong still has shit waveclear. Her ability to put pressure is incredibly limited, and if I recall, her passive is non-existent without a teammate.
: ''I miss the good old Janna/Lulu days'' threads inc lmao.
Give it until 8.1 or 8.2 before they start popping up. I think tank/hard engage supports are popular now that damage is crazy but sooner or later damage should be coming down.

: Rabadon is still way too overpriced
I think riot needs to do 1 of 2 things with rabadons. 1. Give it a second or better passive. All that bonus AP isn't worth it right now. I don't think adding more is going to be viable either. 2. Make it worth rushing as a first or second item. It really should be the IE of AP mages.

: if you mean they should treat it as an aa, just like gp's q or ez' q ? So she can proc lichbane every e and also use klepto? that would be fun.. and broken lol
No, I think it should give a passive skill that gives bonus damage on every AA and double that damage against poisoned targets.
Canastus (NA)
: The current state of Cassiopeia and how to fix her.
For awhile now, I've been thinking that Cass' E should be an on hit effect only. Maybe it's time for riot to really consider that. It's basically an auto-attack replacement now.
: So I've been enjoying the Fate series, and a lot of what goes on and a thought occurred...
I could see them doing a monster girl series, however I see the last battle is Godzilla Girl vs Gamera Girl.

Weedbro (NA)
: Why do you play ranked? is for the "high score"? Are you trying to get to a more enjoyable ELO?
Because people are more serious and competitive. However, when they aren't things can go wrong real quick.
: Can AP mages can a Keystone equivalent to “Press the Attack”
>Why can’t AP champions get some equivalent to the Press the Attack rune? Because press the attack exists and it does adaptive damage? You could easily grab triumph and coup de grace on an AP champ, it's just that 3rd line which would be meh to everyone who's not kayle, teemo, or orianna. I'm sure other mages could get away with it too if they rush a nashor's. I know it's not optimal, but if you like what the rune does you can at least try it out.
