: Female platinum/diamond player looking for help
I doubt you're going to get much of a response here. I'd recommend going to the summonerschool subreddit since there are people there actively looking to coach people(sometimes). Best of luck, I envy your drive.
: don't bother, it isn't worth it, you got ranked rewards already. try getting ranked rewards in a different queue now, you get no decay if you're playing any ranked queue. but if you really want to surpass gold elo, play some janna {{champion:40}} ez to learn forever OP she can boost you 1 tier up from where you should be and i'm not even kidding about that. oh you should be g4? hows about p4 instead cause {{champion:40}}
Mmmmm no. Maybe before back when she was a shield bot, but now you actually have to play aggressively in lane(and know when to do it), track cd's so you can disengage, properly time your shields(since they decay quickly you can't just slap them on your adc and afk), and much more.

Tahm has a decent winrate with a decent playrate..... https://u.gg/lol/champions/tahmkench/build - 52% winrate, 30% presence. Your champion is many things, but underpowered is not one of them. If you want a stronger lategame, you're going to have to sacrifice your mid and early game.
: ***
They're not wrong.... like what do you want them to do, try to dive the enemy mordekaiser? It's generally more beneficial to focus other lanes in this sort of scenario. I love your rank shaming while posting on an unranked pre 30 account.

Yeah man zed is useless and his damage is useless, that's why he has a solid winrate with a high pick/ban rate in high elo. https://u.gg/lol/champions/zed/build?rank=master_plus - 53% winrate, 30% presence masters + https://u.gg/lol/champions/zed/build - 51.5% winrate, 55% presence plat +
: Can someone in Plat+ watch a few of my replays and/or spectate me to judge the rank I deserve?
Since none of the games wanted to show me a link for a replay file i'll just go off of what I see on the op.gg. Currently, you're probably where you belong. However, that doesn't mean that there aren't a few things you can do to optimize your climb. 1) You have good kdas, but you don't always have decent damage shares or KP. Focus on being in more fights and playing a more pivotal role in fights. Also, focus on trading more in lane. If you have that many games in silver with those kinds of stats it suggests to me you play passively. Try to get advantages more in lane and push those advantages more by roaming. 2) CS better. 3) Don't troll pick when you get offroled. Play a champion you can play in the role(i'm not talking ahri support or adc, that's fine since you can clearly play it, but stuff like morde sup or yorick jg), or dodge. 4) Play a more active role in shot calling.

Bad teams? > Yeah, you were the OP, didn't notice. So this is basically a "I shewld be Pletinum but me teams is holdin me bacc" thread. Out of your 803 games played in silver this season, this one game wouldn't impact your climb at all, stop crying and get good at the game, it's that simple. Everyone is learning new things in League every day. Even challenger players. But the difference between us and them is that they acknowledge their mistakes and don't blame their teammates for losses. Of course, not every game is winnable, but this thread is a joke forreal. While i admit that there is a problem with putting new players in mid silver even if they win 0 games, they aren't going to impact your climb that much. I understand the frustration, i have been there. We have all been, you're not the first one or the last one. And you will climb.... eventually. I've never said once in the thread that I shouldn't be in the rank that I'm currently in, so maybe you should get off your high horse and stop use rank as an argument? "I'm higher rank than you, therefore I'm right and all your points are invalid?" Silver is where a whole 1/3 of the entire player base is at, and I don't mind admitting that I'm just another average player. But I would rather get an AFK player than a player that doesn't know what the hell he's suppose to be doing. At least with an AFK on the team we would know when to play safe, and get picks to maybe win the game as difficult as it might be. But with the expectation of another 5th player that doesn't actually exist, this all goes out the window. It's not the LP losses that's frustrating me, it's the fact that I actually had to play a game with them that frustrates me. I would rather riot just deducts 100 LP per week from my account than put me in games with these newly leveled up level 30 players. Also, it wasn't just me that was upset with that game, my entire team was upset with that new player, when it's not even his fault. Riot shouldn't even be placing him in our games in the first place.
The thing he's trying to get at is- what's the point of you saying someone doesn't understand the game when players at your elo dont really understand it any more than they do?
: Nah bruh, forreal i want to vomit in my mouth and swallow it back whenever i see a hardstuck silver player complaining about Tryndamere.
He's an annoying walking statstick who warps the way the game is played lategame. There is that better? I'm not hard stuck silver and I'm complaining about tryndamere.
: Another ignorant triggered silver elo crying about tryndamere For real learn how to play...
Dont rank shame, there's always going to be a bigger fish with a different opinion than you. For example, i'm a higher rank than you and think his kit needs to be a lot less binary. Address arguments, not elo.

Your kda is actually a 2.68:1 KDA on your most played, not a 3.08.

Your history looks pretty grief tbh, though its in gold 4 so your competing with alot of griefers so it's not gonna lose you too many games.

I don't really get how you're mentally able to convince yourself your a victim in all this just because some people said some mean words to you, when your version of fun cost them and others time and LP? Hope you grow out of this, whatever this is, or get banned soon. P.S. people aren't reporting you because you're such a joy to play with.

: Will there ever be a punishment for passive players in Solo Q ?
> PASSIVE ENEMIES: > > How come often passive players have better ways of punishing an aggressive player, rather than aggressive players have no way of punishing a passive player that is hugging tower all game long ? > > If you are facing a laner that is passively hugging their tower with constant jungle pressure how are you bound to punish that player's passiveness if they are ranged and can freely farm near turret ? ( And no I am not talking about lane freezing from their side, just pure passiveness, even if I freeze my lane they would still come up if ranged and if I engage on them their jungler will constantly have their back, turning the situation in 2v1 ) What I got from this and your op.gg- "Why can't my champion who is designed to win trades against pretty much anyone also be able to prevent the enemy from playing safe to avoid these trades?" > PASSIVE TEAMMATES: > > When I am proactive and aggressive I often find my self outnumbered due to the passiveness of my teammates and die, therefore they are saying I am feeding, but they are the ones being passive and not following a good call to take the fight. ( But obviously, If I know we lose a 5v5 I wont engage ) > Then the enemy team gets even more advantage off of that and my team becomes even more passive and scared to engage. > > Does anyone know a way of dealing with passive players in Solo Q or am I getting something wrong and the game should be played passively ? If you're finding yourself outnumbered, you better damn well start paying more attention to where your teammates are on the map. If they're not up on the map, you can't be up on the map either. That's all there is to it. Playing passively and aggressively aren't even really relevant, to quote Dopa- "There's is no such thing as 'Aggressive player and Defensive player' They are just 'Better player and worse player'." Learning when to be aggressive and when not to makes a huge difference, and it's not only dependent on what your enemies are doing, but also your teammates.
: >It's not punishing my ADC in any way. First this >I'll do the bare minimum and nothing more for them Then this You literally explain what you do as a revenge move, playing Ahri Supp isn't something that you play normally because you think it's good, otherwise you would play her more right? You only make it when your ADC is a dick, literally as a punishment
>You literally explain what you do as a revenge move, playing Ahri Supp isn't something that you play normally because you think it's good, otherwise you would play her more right? I main ahri support on a smurf of the same rank, I just tend to try to play enchanters and try to help my ADC more on this account. >You only make it when your ADC is a dick, literally as a punishment No? I'm sorry if i'm turned off from spending the entire game sticking my neck out for someone who would slit mine the second they could. There's no concept of "punishment." It's literally just me not wanting to play around them, instead playing a style akin to brand, zyra, or vel'koz support, but on someone who I actually know how to play. Edit: The definition of punishment in the way you use it is "the infliction or imposition of a penalty as retribution for an offense." There's no retribution here. If I can't trust my adc to not ban my Leona or Pyke because "i'm an egirl and I need to stick to egirl champs", how can I trust them enough to support them and carry the game on their shoulders?
: That's like if I hover Ashe, my Supp bans her because "sHe DeAlS nO dMg" and then I decide to pick Veigar ADC to "punish" him I would NEVER do that, answering toxicity with even more toxicity isn't a way to make the community better and it's just a childish revenge
It's not punishing my ADC in any way. When I play support, I generally 100% put everything I have into keeping my adc alive lategame and making sure they get fed early. I do this at the sacrifice of getting picks and engages when my ADC is not there, as well as missing out on roams because my adc may not know how to play safe, but it generally works(unless they're playing ez). However, if someone doesn't have the most basic level of respect for me i'll play someone who I know how to play very well and can ensure that we win(Ahri is my most played champion by far), but i'm not going the extra mile for my carry. I'll do the bare minimum and nothing more for them. They'll still get dragged over the finish line, but they're most likely not going to be able to be the star of the show, that'll be someone else's job.
: Learn to play more supports then 😂 Support main my arse ****
I can play many supports, but if my adc bans my hover they're getting my support ahri and you can guarantee I'm not playing around my adc. If they dont have the minimum level of respect for who I want to play I won't have the respect to play around them. We'll still win because I'll set up everyone else for success, but I'm not going out of my way to save someone so selfish they think they can dictate who I can or can't play.
Kuponya (NA)
: Of course a goldie would spew nonsense without providing evidence. A majority of the roster can play around him but choose not to respect the champion's strengths and weaknesses and prefer to just face smash their keyboards vs him. He can be easily played around by most top laners except those who are true melee and don't have hard cc to disengage with.
Rank shaming while on an unranked account. The classic.
: gold 2-1 feels horrible.
It's because you get the plat 4 players with a gold mmr who don't care about the game anymore since they hit the rank they wanted. It's tough. They don't take the game seriously, they'll first time champs, and they'll run in 1v5 while behind.

Even 50-100 are enough to tell if you deserve your elo. The thing is, you don't have those radical 1/10 feeders every second game. Yeah, 50-100 games as a support main in silver is definitely enough to tell whether you belong there xD Oh wait, you main Hecarim and you're talking about how easy it is to climb.
It is. I climbed out of silver with like a 90% + winrate on 2 accounts, and I'm a support main. If you are truly better than what your elo is, you will climb, plain and simple.

Because if you're getting worked up and flaming someone over a casual game mode, I will point out that it's a casual game mode with nothing on the line.

Not to mention {{champion:67}} is a brain dead champion now and her interaction with {{item:3124}} compounds her issues. I'm sorry to say this, and I've joined this bandwagon along time ago. If it's not flash and sparkly it's probably shit. This isn't the case for everything but it's the case for most. Vayne will continue to stay relevant as long as she has a prestige skin, same for kai'sa and same for Ahri.

Get trist off that list and I'd agree. An adc who can't be punished for positioning mistakes in fights due to her insane range, long range escape, and self peel is frustrating to deal with.
: What's wrong with {{champion:141}}? He's always been one of the most balanced champions in the game consistently sitting around 50% winrate almost perfectly. He's also ranked 23/44 overall for junglers, not sure why you think hes OP.

If you want to spout your bullshit equality, maybe start by boycotting and fighting when the systematic sexism and harassment comes to light, not a month later when an event you don't attend has a panel prioritizing women.

In my eyes I think people were up in arms because there was an actual tangible thing that people were explicitly getting denied from(they missed out on a couple of events that weren't getting re-ran after the exclusive hours). The previous case was off of personal experiences only, and regardless there was still a lot of backlash from it. Me, personally- I honestly got upset when both of these happened. At the time, I went on a keyboard warrior typing spree on reddit condemning their actions with my own personal experiences before I finally realized that my opinions really meant nothing on the subject. I kind of calmed down after that, after all things like this happen all the time and I don't get outraged(even though i've never experienced workplace sexism a lot of my family have in the past), but for some reason it got to me when it was riot games. Idk, those are just my thoughts on the whole situation.

Is this a parody post? Look, I get that people who say that assassins are op arent correct, but you beat a bronze zed. You can do that on any champion because they flat out don't know how to play the lane well enough to not int you if you try to punish. Anivia also has a very favorable matchup into zed, a 55% winrate in this matchup according to op.gg. Look, I get it, you want to prove assassins aren't op. They aren't, but this isn't the way to go about it.

LTK KoRo (EUW)
: We could say it for every champion in the game. Let's say Ahri: pre six-Poke down with q, try to find angles for eq, all in if enemy is below 50% and eq ignite is up post six: Wait for them to use a key CC, then all in with three ult charges Velkoz: pre six: waveclear with w, poke with w+e if someone is out of position, poke with q with fun angles post six: fish for good e, if hit e+w follow with q+ult Kassadin: pre six: survive lane, give up some cs, poke with q if possible post six: wait for key cc, load full combo on enemy, hope he's dead Champions is league have overall simple goals. The execution and timings aren't simple.
the difference is with ahri for example you also have to worry about things like your mana pool and trimming the wave properly in order to accomplish your goals. Pre 6 poking with q isn't effective at all on her due to mana costs and pathetic early damage(she needs electrocute to wi early trades), it's all about trying to shove the enemy in and harass with autos. You can't really use your charm offensively unless it's a 100% play because of it's high mana cost and ifi you don't have that pre 6 they'll engage on you. Kassadin is a lot harder to play when he's not sustaining with FF + TOB, and vel'koz is really tricky to play into assassins, it requires really good level 1 and 2 play as him in order to come out even or ahead against them as vel(and just to survive tbh). I don't really know the specifics of those champs since I haven't played vel ever(have played into him before frequently as many different champs) and kass plays really differently now than he used to with his old DFT setup.
: Some high elo: ABUZE HIS L0w RANJEEEEEEE Get ready for a rain of downvotes from lucian defenders.

: I dont play Zed but when I do I press R and roll my face on the keyboard and get a kill
I don't think zed is by any means broken, but he is really easy to play because his goals are extremely clear and relatively easy to execute. For example---> Pre 6: Poke down with weq, all in after they burn pots and drop into lethal with ignite Post 6: Wait for them to use a key CD, then all in with ulti At the same time, if you're playing against him you should know that this is what he wants to do any hold your cds accordingly.

: In every single world outside the Trash Boards.
^ This exactly. You can say he's annoying to play against or whatnot, but claiming he's overpowered? Cmon, that's super far from the truth and they know it. Most assassins play like him, it's a matter of learning how to beat them as a whole.

: What do you expect in a game the makes ADC mains feel like the whole world revolves around them?
To be fair when you're playing adc and don't have any kills, expect to get the shit flamed out of you. If you're adc and gave up cs in lane so you could stay alive, expect to get flamed for dealing 0 damage.
: SO that happened.... Harrassment
Yeah... I like to play enchanters when I support and I saw a ton of stuff like that, but it was generally from the enemies.
