: I can honestly say that I've only seen it done once, and it got stomped.
It is extremely hard to outwit them in platinum+. :/ I have lost three times to it which is also the total # of times I have seen it in solo Q but it was such an effort and it felt almost hopeless trying to fight back the tide.

https://i.imgur.com/a2kIO1k.png Gold Promos right now ladies and gents If I was not a platinum player plat 1 last season other account I would say If I was silver I would basically make this a 4v6 favor of the enemy team with that sad let the games begin.

: The only thing i am 100% convinced now is that promo games are indeed rigged. i have no other explanation. I haven't won a promo since mid season s7. I lost my promo to d2, dropped to d4 immediately got back into d3 promo, stomps. Promo, stomps. 9 fuckin promos into d3, all lost. This season the same shit, another 6 promos into d3 in a row with absolutely horrible unimaginable games. Before promos i played with d1s and ex master/challenger both on my and the enemy team and i can win against them but i can't win promos all of a sudden anymore. Just remove promos in between tiers. From one tier to another promos are okay so you are not lucky streaking your way into dia or plat or gold w/e. But from d5-d4 you play with the same retards anyways so what does it matter. Now people will come "but promos are there so you don't just drop back duh!". Easy fix: 90 LP i win a game get +20 congratz you are now D3 10 LP. Would stop a lot of frustration i have atleast. And it's not even in my elo only when people come with this argument i just met my skill level or whatever. Even in gold promo games or plat promo games i just tank my winrate and lose one game after another. I don't believe the entire system forces you into anything other than promo games are rigged as fuck and i see it everywhere on all my accounts, friends, streamers. Everyone runs into these unwinnable unfun piece of shit games in promos very frequently.
100% lol I have a platinum a gold and a silver account I am hard stuck on the silver due to promos and playing off meta champions if you want to climb fk the system u need to duo look at al.ost all challengers climbing

The system is rigged because it has a hybrid model it tries to match you with players of ur MMR yes BUT there is a massive underlying flaw #1 promotions #2 duo queue #3 rank limitations vs purely based all MMR #1 . If you get to promotions in a division your MMR goes up for your rank does not this forces a 50% or worse <% win rate. If you get to promotions to a rank ur MMR is now that division e.g. diamond 5 the most discussed case but platinum 1. Likely you will get mostly platinum players while the enemy is mostly diamonds because ur MMR is diamond 5 due to promos but ur rank is plat 1. Now u lose one u get plat 1 MMR the match all of a sudden becomes more even but 3 game if you do win does not ... because of the rank restrictions not MMR. #2 I will skip over #3 This goes kinda back to the restriction of rank .. a personal example is having 3 account and climbing but been hardstuck in silver gold and platinum now where do I belong if I have 50% win rate AND climbing in all three but get stuck when win rate goes to 52%-55% just by the simple fact a silver vs a platinum is vastly different .

I can't believe no one here has mention caps lock or maybe I missed it that been my push to talk for forever.

: AP Items Request for Balance Thoughts
With these changes at this point honestly Aurelion needs his W nerf reverted @PhRoXz0n he is suppose to be early/mid game and extremely hard to carry late game because everything will melt you the moment they get in your star range, the issue is with the amount of burst/assasin available he suffers unless your philosphy for this champion is to gate him for 80+% of the population and only allow mid tier- high elo to enjoy him because he requires such a degree of skill due to his weakness..... I tried with the new AP items it felt awful I went standard GLP/boot/rylais/liandry %max hp/zhonya *because its manditory lets be real* I felt I was doing less overall dmg at all stages in the game, and because I have to get dark seal early on because of Mana, his playlyle might now switch to rush lost chapter because he is super squishy so now he is really weak early - weak compare to everything that meta mid game and borderline shit tier late game because you will get bursted before you can breath not to mention the ASININE AMOUNT OF WEAKNESSES that should be his gate not all this other SHIT. Sorry for the rant I needed to Air this out because ----- Amumu/ Aurelion are my only two champions... Amumu is struggling hardcore his identity is a mess/outdated and Aurelion only works plat IV+ (affectively tbh)...
: asol doesn't need health tho, the only reason he ever got so much was because it was just tacked onto all the items he liked. He was more gated by mana.

He was more gated by mana. Mostly wrong ... he needed to build those items because his weaknesses are massive so he needs a bit of tankyness honestly .... if you look at it objectively GLP boots and rylais now to cover the loss of HP a little bit we got 3 items left with any choice and because of Sol weakness 100% expect zhonya realistically so that 4 2 actual choices left I guess..
: Low Elo Is Virtually Unplayable Right Now....
I have two account one is platinum after placements one is silver... the platinum is steadily climbing the other one is hardstuck Silver I right now because the games are so volatile I tilt off the face of the map.

The point I was trying to make is most hardcore Amumu main do not even max E because its so god awful compare to Q cooldown or W... idk it was an example it could be 3% 3.5% 4% 4.5% 5% ...

: Looks like a normal game. That happens in normal games. And, I really dont know why people use these pre-game checks like lolnexus. Its just going to make you play worse. You are gonna play differently vs smurfs and people you deem "good." And differently probably means worse. You are better off going in blind.

When u see something like that the game is over before it even started because of the skill discrepancy

: Is lcs boring as sh*t to anyone else too ?
I been watching LCS because of the game meta/ how pressure works this season I have so far had a 100% accuracy in predicting the winner of the game based solely on the first two towers to go down.

: AURF - Maokai 🎄Kinda (Funny) :D
honestly maokai is sona level of needs to be disabled.
: What's your ideal game length?
none of the above I like 15-20 minute games I wish they would keep this fast pace system reduce kill gold but increase gold from lane --- and make it player casual outside of rank like mobile legends does it like even if you miss the CS u get 50% of the gold but hey thats my opinion.
