: I believe you have a misconception. Ranked is not some “grind” that you will climb simply by playing more games. If you are feeling “stuck” in a rank, stop blaming others and work on what you **can** improve - yourself.

Ranked is not some “grind” that you will climb simply by playing more games. If you are feeling “stuck” in a rank, stop blaming others and work on what you **can** improve - yourself. You know, I think it's you that has the misconception. It's really, really obnoxious how many people hide behind the -stop blaming your teammates- nonsense as a means for elitist players to keep players down. You really believe that it's not because you actually have -shit- teammates? Do you really honestly believe that every single loss, every single game is because of one person, not because of a horrible team? If you believe that sir, than you are believing the absolute nonsense that anyone spits out. And fine, I'll disapprove your statement, with genuine proof. https://imgur.com/a/WloecHd I suppose it's my fault that the jungler went blue Kayn and couldn't get kills, going 6/14 and constantly going in on the Sivir, Nami, Lux and being literally unable to get anything done and I guess it's also my fault that he decided to invade Warwick and 1v1 him... and die to him twice. But, can't blame my teammates, because it's totally my fault because I obviously I need to 'improve myself'. https://imgur.com/a/69GB9iW And I also would assume that it's my fault that the Gragas decided to not only forget that Gragas normally goes Predator, but also decides to grab Aftershock, then buys Cinderhulk which is fine if he's going full tank… BUT AND THEN GOES AP. And not only does he go AP, but he rushes a banshee's veil. Not a void staff, not a zhonyas, a freaking banshee's veil. But I mean, obviously my needing improvement would totally have an effect on this, since I can't blame my teammates. And also Vladmir fed the Sylas and the J4 so, totally not my teammates fault. https://imgur.com/a/eoHM8dm And here, I suppose I can't blame my Jinx for playing hyper aggressive into a Thresh/MF botlane level 2, getting hooked every single time afterwards then raging at me (because it's totally my fault that even though I speed them up and give them shields AND exhausted the MF AND ulted them at about level 6), or the Akali that after getting hard fed by their Katarina, decides to dick around and try to inflate their KDA instead of going for objectives and then dying 8 times and proceeding to flame the /all chat because they're mad as hell. Totally can't blame my teammates here. I guess I need to improve myself in order for my mid laner to not throw their lead and for my ADC to be able to dodge hooks. https://imgur.com/a/wVw00Ri And finally, the Crème de la Crème, I guess it's my fault that my top laner went 1/11/6 as a Neeko into a Shen, and my jungler went 8/11 and the ADC wanted to play mid but couldn't get mid and decided to go botlane LB and then decided to feed because they didn't want to play anymore. I suppose I can't "blame my teammates" because it's totally my fault. Because clearly, I need to improve MYSELF in order to fix these problems from happening. I need to improve myself, so that my jungler doesn't die eleven times, my top laner doesn't die a billion times top lane and my ADC LB doesn't auto feed the Jinx so that she goes 17/4. If you're going to tell me, that I should 'stop blaming my teammates' and working on 'improving myself' when I get brainless idiots who do THIS crap every other game, then I don't know what to tell you sir.

: Items don't win the game. Champion picks do. You can get 1st/second place with almost no items + the right team.

: As others have stated, the game needs some RNG so that you need to make new decisions each game and it doesn't become flat and stale. I think it's pretty universally agreed that the item RNG is too much of a factor right now, but putting the game on train tracks would instantly kill it.

No, what's going to kill it is, Riot ignoring literal thousands of players saying "Get rid of this incredibly NOT fun game mechanic that absolutely has no reason to be in the game other than to absolutely and utterly screw a player over into the ground." and Riot putting on the hard /muteall

: And thats not grounds for report. Being frustrated in a competitive game is natural, like it or not. Its why i dont personally play ranked, and only play non arams/ai games with friends. People suck. Things are going to be frustrating. But that is /not/ reason to report someone, let alone ban them. If they arent verbally abusing you and/or being toxic, actively sabotaging your game with intent to lose, or actively giving up with an overall negative attitude, then its not reportable. Playing differently is not against the rules. Not doing what your team(s) want is not against the rules. If you dont like it, find a new game.

Not doing what your team(s) want is not against the rules. If you dont like it, find a new game. I'm really starting to think people read a few lines that make replies without finishing the post. "Would I report players that do that? No. No I would not. But having being put in that position myself, I can definitely understand why players would feel so frustrated that they'd do that." I literally just put this at the end of the post. Why does everyone assume that I think it's reportable? I said, I understand why people would do it. Not that I think it should be done. Goodness people. Actually read the post before you reply. ><

Your comment has nothing to do with it. Read what was written. Was there anything that said about pinging your own items? Or your own ult? Or your own summoners? No. I specifically stated that showing the entire group that you're pinging your 'ally's' items/summoners/ult is pointless and only leaves it open for ping spams. There's nothing in that post at all that says anything about pinging your own. So therefore, your post has nothing to do with mine.
: Actually you're quite wrong. There is a very good reason you should be able to do this and that is quickly spreading information someone might not have seen on their own. Let's say some people on your team were trying to start a fight, but your playmaker's huge ult wasn't up and they didn't realize it, you ping the ult. What if someone wants to do baron but you don't have a smite up but they don't realize, you ping the smite. It's more a learning tool for people who don't know how to read the information available to them, but even at high ranks everyone's human, everyone makes mistake, and anyone could not realize a crucial piece of information that you took notice of.

: I noticed you're going sunfire on support poppy. You don't really want to do this- most toplane tank items, especially sunfire(an item made for waveclearing, not good on supports) are not efficient on a support's income. Zeke's, redemption, knights vow, and locket are all great items that are a solid go to build most games.

My losing my games isn't what upsets me. It's games when I'm ahead by a ridiculous amount, because I got a super good stun and we're ahead 3 kills to 0, then when I back to buy items, my ADC decides to stay and 1v2 and die. Or other nonsense like that.

: Because that is the game everyone is queuing up to play. League isn't the 30-40 minute game like it use to be. If you are queuing up expecting a long game, you are the problem. League is in a hypersnowball meta where the game is won or lost in minutes. If you don't understand that when you queue up, that is on you.

All these people talking about how communication is important. https://media.tenor.co/images/db26709894273e1fb9adad5e1759d461/raw (not sure if this image is gonna work) I literally win most if not all my games by perma-muting everyone (outside of mid lane because of the very rare chance someone actually calls mia) and emotes and playing the game. You don't need to type, Do baron. You just ping spam it. You don't need to type, play aggressive, you ping the target. 70% of the games you play are going to be filled with toxicity, shit talk, immature kids who still think that "That's what she said" jokes are funny and the occasional dick joke. It's honestly better for everyone if you could just mute all chats in general.

: I don't think aram bans were a good thing. It's aram, if a champ is broken in aram, just nerf that champ a little. Bans would take more 30 seconds in a game that was supposed to be fast paced, and remember, it's not just about the 30 seconds, but after that some people might dodge (which a lot of them do in those kind of games [URF, aram, etc])...

Maybe i'm an "ARAM Account" to you, maybe it suits your narrative, But i definitely did not like having Bans in ARAM. to me it's a bandaid fix against the accounts you're talking about and that need a better name, you wanna get on equal footing ask for all champs unlock in ARAM and i will support you, you can add Ranked Aram too i'm down for it. I feel the balance changes kneecaped most heavy pokers, and towards the end of the event, here in Europe bans shifted towards tanks and melee-assassins who abused the new items. And BTW, LB Kindred and Skarner are not the ultimate OP Comp which people make Aram Accounts for, i don't deny those exist like some others do on those boards but come on. But just because we don't sprout multiple posts overnight to pat ourselves on the back for the removal of Bans, doesn't mean we don't exist. and i'd like to read the data Riot Gathered and based their decisions on before anything else, but that's just me apparently. {{sticker:sg-poppy}}

: I don't have an ARAM account and I thought the bans sucked. This is why: if someone has an ARAM account, they focus on unlocking all the strong ARAM champs, then they only have to avoid the freebie champs for the week who are shit in that game mode. There are substantially more than ten good ARAM champs, so odds were still pretty good they would land on someone strong. On the other hand, I'm a regular player who enjoys ARAM sometimes and has unlocked a few ARAM-friendly champs when I was sitting on a ton of IP/BE. Most of my picks, however, are my support champs or champs who seem like they might be fun to learn someday. When several good ARAM champs I own get banned, the odds I wind up with someone who isn't at least moderately handicapped in the mode drop substantially. And since I'm a support main, many of those "someday" champs I own are ADCs who are quite good in ARAM. Someone who mains top lane with a melee focus and only has a handful of ARAM-friendly champs could lose nearly all access to someone strong during bans. Likewise for mid-main assassin players and so on. Removing bans is more beneficial, both mathematically and in simple feel, for regular players far more than ARAM-only monsters. BTW, your "totally fked opposing team" has Skarner, Kindred, and LeBlanc. None of those are good in ARAM. If this is your example of the terribleness that is a no-ban ARAM setting, it's hard to sympathize with your complaint.

Ether you're going to actively try to shut down those kind of accounts or you're not. Removing banned champions is 100% catering to those accounts. I have all the champions and I think banning in ARAM goes against what ARAM is. I also think an ARAM account is a myth. The term ARAM account has been blown way out of proportion when you consider that ARAM picks from your champions, the weeks free champions and the prior weeks champions. You can collect the good champs and give yourself better odds but peoples freak outs are way over blown.

There are flat out people who legitimately have accounts that only have the best of the best champions to play on ARAM just so they'll consistently be able to use them. Just so they can always have a huge advantage. Bans normally helped against that. Now they're gone. If you're playing vs god tier ARAM champions multiple times in a row, that is a not a coincidence. I can 100% bet everything and the farm, that if you're playing {{champion:555}} {{champion:110}} {{champion:115}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:11}} {{champion:99}} more than two or three times in a row, it's not bad luck. You're playing vs ARAM accounts.

: If any late game champion is going to receive early-game or mid-game buffs, they need power shifted _from_ their late game power to those places, not given free buffs. Blatantly adding power (even if it's something as small as mana cost reductions or CD reductions) isn't a good idea since it makes them go from a late game champion to a **good-at-all-points** champion.

But that's the thing I'm saying. I'm not looking for her to be GOOD at early game. Nasus has a bad early game, but he can still be ganked because he has a really strong slow and actually still can add some damage with Spirit Fire and his Q. Kayle isn't even good to gank because she neither provides CC or Damage.
