: Then you are not the person OP is talking about. It's ok to ping an item to make your teammates aware of it and if you are only doing this, you shouldn't be concerned about the fact your teammates can see you are the one who is pinging. But players who have to ping your items to question your build or usage of it (/wave to all players who have to ping my support items because they can't see it's on cd) deserve to be muted.
Yeah Op is talking about the person who pings your {{item:3097}} 9 times because the 2 and a half minutes on your last ward pass has lapsed, and they just died face checking bushes

Yeah, I gave up my preferred role to try and solo carry lol
: That's silver for you, gold isn't much better. Use copious amounts of pings and pick a champion that you can use to affect the flow of the game as much as you can by being everywhere you can as much as you can. Be where the carries are or just become the carry.

I think the real issue with the map, is the bot side tri bush, and the top side tri bush give those people HUGE disadvantages, since now they can easily be flanked, if they cannot keep 2 wards up at all time

: Scrap ALL TACTICS THAT WERE KNOWN IN PAST YEARS. And gank bot. Doesnt matter if your top goes 0-4 your mid 0-3 just give your adc 2 kills and then keep it alive and you win. That's the meta. Everytime i get autofilled mid/top i litterally flame my jungler for ganking me and wasting his time on my lane when he can gank bot and give us free 25LP.

That's the meta. > Everytime i get autofilled mid/top i litterally flame my jungler for ganking me and wasting his time on my lane when he can gank bot and give us free 25LP. I can kind of see the logic here, since counting yourself, bot lane gives you the largest portion of "fed" team mates after a few ganks, usually, I try not to force the gank unless I KNOW we can do it, they are pushed, almost dead, or whatever, and just focus on farming or counter jungling, being a support main, my vision score stays up there too lol
: Gank top after first two buffs to get a kill and snowball (help your laner push out after if they don't have tp, try to get them to freeze if they do so you can regank). This gives you a good first back. Farm up to like level 5, and gank mid, help them push out, then get them to invade the enemy jungler's red or blue, whichever they started. You should at least blow the jungler's flash and take their buff, and likely kill them. Take your level 6 bot and get a free kill or two, now that the enemy jungler is off the map and their mid is behind and pinned in lane. Even if top tps, you should get a free kill before they even start. If you don't, back off and enjoy the free sum while your top takes first tower or repeat gank if they cancel the tp.

: Yes, this has been pointless, hasn't it. I should have just linked the [definition](http://www.dictionary.com/browse/penultimate) of [penultimate](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/penultimate) to prove you don't know what the word means and not expect you to realize a simple leap of logic like "prefix + adjective should equal prefix + adjective". (meaning not "second to worst")
When in the context of the description, it says "the penultimate art form" they are meaning the apex of their culture is warfare, however the word they are using means it the next to the bottom of the list, not the top tier, you fucking potato, you are just arguing yourself in circles trying to find a way to snap your head out of your ass
Daunt (EUNE)
: How is that a problem with Kog then? The on hit itemization is giving those kind of ADCs a really early wake up call. Hit Guinsoo's instead of Kog.
agreed, rageblade is what ends up making all these on hit folk scary
: "kog is a hyper carry he is only good late game!!1" "he is very useless if someone gets near him he's DEATH!!" "he needs buffs obviously" these people actually believe all these sentences, lèl.
Kog is an ADC hyper carry, he is useless until he finishes 1 item* fixed it lol
: (Well I had a bigger post, but it got eaten by the back button.) Source for what? That ultimate now has more meaning than just "last?" [dictionary.com](http://www.dictionary.com/browse/ultimate) >adjective 4.basic; fundamental; representing a limit beyond which further progress, as in investigation or analysis, is impossible 6.not to be improved upon or surpassed; greatest; unsurpassed >noun 9.the best, greatest, or most extreme of its kind. [Webster-Merriam](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ultimate) >adjective 2 : most extreme >3 : relating to or being the chief or most important If that still doesn't make sense, perhaps we should do a role reversal. Can you explain to me how you got "next to worst" out of a word that by all dictionary definitions and root words means "next to last?" >his bio said combat was his peoples penultimate art form...meaning next to worst lol,
But Ultimate, isn't the root word, for penultimate, so your entire argument is pointless
: Okay, I'm out of other ways to explain it. Last does not mean worst, both in ultimate and ultimus. You're the one who seems to be trying to alter the root word here. We've **already** added another meaning to ultimate. We should keep secondary meanings consistent moving forward.
Source? Because the root words in the dead language, haven't changed... because it is no longer spoken, so it cannot evolve Or at the very least show me your other definition, because "trust me bro, it makes sense" isn't really a sound methodology
: I'm trying to say that if we've co-opted ultimate to mean "last __or__ best" then it's only logical that penultimate be "almost last or almost best" instead of "almost worst."
No Starbucks, we cannot change what the root of words means lol, the word itself is seldom used, it is just one of many commonly misused words. As of yet there has been no update to the dictionary for its use, kind of like how literally can literally mean figuratively, or figuratively literally, because it's usage changed so much that the common vernacular changed with it. However, that is not the case for this particular word, I would guess ultimate originally had "Final" connotations as a description, someones Ultimate attack, or whatever. ultimate (adj.) 1650s, from Late Latin ultimatus, past participle of ultimare "to be final, come to an end," from Latin ultimus (fem. ultima) "last, final, farthest, most distant, extreme," superlative of *ulter "beyond" (from suffixed form of PIE root *al- "beyond"). As a noun from 1680s. Ultimate Frisbee is attested by 1972.
: I'm aware. Last doesn't mean worst in the definition of "ultimate," however, so why should it in penultimate?
My guess would be its root words Latin "paenultimus." The Latin word was formed through the combination of "paene" meaning "almost" and "ultimus" meaning "last." We can find "paene" and "ultimus" at the root of other English words. "Peninsula," meaning "a piece of land nearly surrounded by water," traces to "paene" and the Latin "insula," meaning "island." And "ultimate," meaning "last or final," traces to "ultimus."
: As we use "ultimate" to mean "the best," in this case penultimate should probably mean "second best" instead of "second worst." However, if combat isn't their ultimate art, there's only one thing it could be... Baking. Yes, baking.
pe·nul·ti·mate pəˈnəltəmət/Submit adjective last but one in a series of things; second to the last. "the penultimate chapter of the book" synonyms: next-to-last, second-to-last, second-last "the penultimate movie on my top-ten list is an animated feature"

When I am playing with friends, I dont really care what support they give me, I will play whatever, and its funny, but when Im in ranked, wouldnt you RATHER I play something with a really high win rate for me, rather than being like "Well...I havent played taric in a few years, but they banned leona"

buying sunfire means you are already kinda immune to assuming you are playing a tank at this point {{item:3147}} 2900 gold {{item:3068}} 2900 gold seems kinda fair as a counter, but very few people have room for a sunfire, every ad can manage a duskblade
