If the joke is "Annie was released long enough ago that if she aged in real-time she could get a drink!", you should have said that and left the sexualized images and references to "dressing for the occasion" out of it.

Are you implying stereotypes can't be racist?

Reason: if you are immediately re-queueing, chances are the person you just reported is queueing at the same time, which massively increases the likelihood you'll be put together.

Kalikain (NA)
: There is a reason, this game isnt a coinflip like all the butt hurt master stuck streamers/youtubers scream. Promos are there to stop people who arent worth of climbing. When you are in your promos, your mmr is close to the next tier, and you'll be playing with the next tier. If you can't stay in it with them, then you need to improve and stop crying and begging for free climbing. They already will give you free wins in your next promo. If you are too good for you elo, it will skip the promo already. ITS ALREADY A THING. Its only for people who are already too good even for the next tier. Theres no conspiracy with riot trying to keep you down. It's you who keeps you down.
Congrats, you completely failed to prove your point. Assuming promos don't exist and I get to gold, I'll play against gold players. If I can't hold my own against them, I will demote to silver once more. Promos don't do anything except lengthen the grind.
Kalikain (NA)
: Even if you lose promos, your next promo is +1 win, and if you lose that one, your next promo is +2 wins. If you cant climb with that, idk man. Maybe climbing isn't what you need rn.
Someone with a 60% winrate can still repeatedly lose promos due to poor luck. The system is pointless and only serves to lengthen the grind. There is no reason to have it in place.
: Why are people reacting to promos all of a sudden?
Promos and series and stuff are just ways of artificially increasing the elo grind. Everyone knows this and has known this for a while. Ranked, on a game by game basis, is a coinflip. Only over a multitude (10+ games) can skill really start to show. Promos say "fuck that, get a win streak or get fucked." Issues come in waves on the boards. One of two people will complain about something, get a lot of attention, and then people start to copy/people realize it's an issue. The "reeeeee promos" posts have been coming on and off for years. Trust me, I've been here for four years.
: braum font of life or demolish
Manaflow band and gathering storm are a little weird, not gonna lie. Manaflow band will pretty much be useless later in the game because you won't be spell spamming super often and gathering storm is, no offense, useless on tank supports. Generally inspiration and picking two of the following, free ass boots, biscuits, stopwatch, dematerializers, or cosmic insight. Boots give you free gold and extra MS, biscuits let you sustain in lane EZPZ, stopwatch is OP when used correctly, cosmic insight is generally good, and demats are meh unless you're in really high elo. A different but interesting option is to go into the domination tree and pick zombieward/ghost poro and ultimate hunter, ingenious hunter, or the MS one. This allows you to have HELLA vision control, but it isn't as consistent as boots/biscuits. Plus, you'll have loads of CDR from items anyway so the ult CD one might be kinda redundant. As for the resolve tree, demolish/font of life depends on if you think you're going to stomp lane or not. They're both super meh on tank supports, so it's kinda up to preference. I guess demolish is better than most on braum because he can eat harass with his shield in order to proc it under tower, but it's mainly just up to preference.

FFrazien (EUW)
: Nexus Blitz canceled as permanent gamemode
Alright, there is literally no reason for me to play LoL. Riot apparently doesn't care about its playerbase at all.
: I mean it's not hard to tell why: against an Assassin you actually have to think about your positioning/cooldowns and can't spam all your shit on the wave. A Xerath wasting his E and then walks up aggressively to CS; an Orianna won't 100-0 him for it. At worst he takes a bad trade. However if Xerath wastes his E like an idiot against a Fizz, and then walks up like an idiot - he _will_ get 1-shot for it. A mage v mage matchup is far more forgiving (at low levels of play, especially when people don't harass as hard for CS). They won't even try to harass for CS because they are so scared of dying (and god forbid you "feed" - even though you're better off trying to harass, feeding, and learning from your mistakes) At the highest levels of play, however, mages are much stronger. This is because when people actually know how to play the game, Fizz's melee ass doesn't get to free farm or engage for free. One misclick on a CS and suddenly the mage can permafreeze the wave. The enemy doesn't waste their Exhaust/Barrier and then walk up anyways. Even Faker goes down 20+ CS as Fizz in a lane against Syndra.
couldn't have said it any better. edit: and they're way better further into the game because most mages have extremely safe waveclear while a fizz needs to be melee range, plus easier AOE damage in teamfights, more utility on average, etc.
: "Have you seen any mage be slightly viable in the last 2 years". {{champion:69}} {{champion:112}} {{champion:8}} being OP in 3 lanes at once in the past year, for good periods of time. "Haven't been meta for 2 years". Looks like you're only talking about pro play when you list viable mages, so we're just gonna ignore that mages were close to 80%+ pick in mid lane all of Spring split _just last year_? https://imgur.com/a/Ui3wQ5U Whereas in major regions mages got played pretty much every game. "Haven't been meta for 2 years". Pretty much 100% pick rate mid lane in worlds 2017. On the other hand, if we're talking about SoloQ, then there are plenty more "viable" and even borderline OP mages. Hey, but I guess statistics are only important if they support our narrative. So why is it so wrong that assassins/bruisers, after _ACTUALLY_ being "out of the meta" for 2+ years, get their spotlight in pro play? Or just admit you're full of shit. You don't want assassins/bruisers to be meta because you don't like playing against them. Don't make up statistics or straight up lie through your teeth about mage's viability. Anyone who upvoted this is full of shit too.
the boards has a major hard on for hating mages despite them being way more annoying than assassins.

They're almost always phrased with the intent to shut down an argument and insult someone for playing a champion.

oh I totally agree. I think a lack of empathy is the issue. I feel for jungle mains because their role was messed with and they're clearly hurting, but how many felt for ADC mains when their role was straight gutted?

Vayne, Fiora, whoever else they decide to give it to. It shouldn't exist. True damage is already a horrible concept, %HP true damage is a crime against gaming.
this is one of the funniest comments I've ever read on the boards
: Your idea about counter-playing instead of counter-building is smart, but wrong. Counter-plays refer situation-specific acts. For example, the way to counter Nasus is to deny him from stacking. This is a strategy that is very exclusive to playing against Nasus. Another example, the way to counter Renekton is not to go in when his fury bar is red because it gives him a huge boost in trading power. This is also very specific to playing against Renekton. Now, back to your case of Fiora. Suppose Fiora's vitals are changed to dealing bonus physical damage instead of max HP % damage. Does that change the way you play against her? No, you still have to prevent her from hitting your vitals. Therefore your argument is wrong in a sense that it has nothing to deal with Fiora having max HP % damage. It a champion design issue. Playing against a champion's strength universally applies to any matchup, and has NOTHING to deal with max HP % damage.
But the difference between fiora doing physical/true damage is this. A tank could just stack like 500 armor and facetank fiora ultimate without a problem. No counterplay would be required whatsoever. The presence of true damage prevents this.
: So to those kicking their League addiction... When was your last game?
94372148 (NA)
: %HP true damage shouldn't exist, change my mind.
% HP true damage is not inherently bad, but using it too frequently or adding too much of it into a kit is not a good idea. It should exist as an incentive for risky plays or fulfilling specific requirements.
: Why should a support jungler not have a support jungler item? When did I ever say that this item would NOT be a support item?
