: Jg exp does not need a buff. If you did krugs consistently youd have been ahead. I find myself ahead on skarner of all champs constantly.
Wait, krugs gets you level 3? Nooooo way! I didn't know that despite playing hundreds of JG games!!!! (smh). Now i'll start winning!
: i love getting ganked as soon as the 2nd minion wave spawns. we need to bring back devourer for some variety........
I totally agree. no one wants the 3 camp lvl 3 back (unless its krugs). I'm fine with XP for the first clear but after that it gets a little rough.
: No. When jg is overbuffed you see crap like twitch jungle, graves, lee sin everywhere you turn, showing up at level 3 when the solo laners are only level two and absolutely rekking everyone with next to zero counterplay. It's bad enough having kayn and jax jungle every which way you turn. If you think certain jungle champs are weak, like for instance, most tanks, then maybe certain types of buffs are in order, but overall, jungle still has insane impact on the early/mid game, and it feels pretty balanced overall. Again, with the exception of kayn and jax, because screw those two.
I mean, with the way it is now, you are seeing more ganks because farming isn't worth, so I'll just live in lanes and soak your XP so I can actually play. I don't think the 3 camp gank was healthy either. No one wants that back. But overall when you are 15-4-11 and your KC% in in the 90%, i mean, you shouldn't be down levels to 3-8-1 shen tops.
: PLEASE BUFF JG!
I didn't say play udyr and just be a dick. i mean play udyr (or yi or jax, etc) and take over a side wave in order to become a pseudo laner for XP.

: If you are a plat player. You will theoretically beat other plat players 50% of the time. How is that hard to understand? but instead, in order to climb, you need to win more than 50% of your games. So a plat player will win in gold at probably a 60% clip (hence climb to plat). a diamond would win at a 75% clip, a master at a 90% clip. Its really not hard to understand. So with MMR reset, you need to beat players you should be beating 50% of time, 60%+ of the time. Don't you get it?
So I need to beat Diamond players to prove that I am Gold 2 instead of Gold 3, when I am neither. You guys literally make no sense. And no, that's no different than any other season. It's just showing that if you wait until June, you could just play actual Gold 2 players and climb in 10 games vs trying to beat plat and diamond players.
: Are you actually dumb? 5-1 with a 5 KDA is failing? Guess what? If you are in gold. Just hope you aren't in my game. You'll lose MMR. Its not a personal thing. Its literally for everyone. Silvers playing against golds to climb to gold. vs beating silvers to climb to gold like you would in June. Up and down the board is the same. Until you get to master and above and in that case you are getting silver players in your game in Feb and hopefully they are on the other team.
Are you guys dense enough to realize that your MMR is theoretically where you would win 50% of your games?

So I just started doing placements for season 9. I am 4-1 in placements, and was at "Gold IV". This is my load in screen to the game: 3 prior season plats and 1 prior season diamond. So my entire team, and probably enemy team, is all plat and diamond level players. We crush this game. I am now 5-1 in placements and I'm "Promoted to Gold 3". As you can see by the OP.GG, the game's MMR is apparently "Gold 1". HAHAHAHAHAHA. Right. Cuz you know, that's definitely what it looks like with all diamond and plat players. So now i'm 5-1 in promos. By this point, I will be matched with high plat/diamond players for my final two placements. So if I go 2-0, and go 7-1, MAYBE I get to start the season in Gold 2, MAYBE. Could still be Gold 3. But don't worry, all you have to do is win 75% of your games against plat and diamond level players to get back to Plat 4, where you finished last season. Probably where a lot of Mid Diamond - Low Masters players are currently sitting in P4. And if you don't? You'll just normalize your MMR back down to Gold. Making it harder to climb there later. Bottom line, this is an absolute joke. Why should players have to beat other plat and diamond players to get out of Gold? Its completely ridiculous, and if you play ranked before June, you are slitting your own throat. Instead, just wait until then when a big portion of the playerbase normalized, and then you will easily win 80% of your games and climb within 10 games, vs sitting here grinding against players diamond players to get promoted to Gold 2. BAHAHAHAHA. It's complete garbage. Fix this. If ur plat why is it hard for you to beat plat players and get plat? Ur not beating plat players to get out gold, ur beating plat players to prove ur plat and not get demoted to gold. If u get gold than ur a gold player till u get out. Simple

: How is this different than any other season? You cannot be placed higher rank than you ended last season. Almost everyone gets moved down. 100% of players in Diamond+ get moved down. Placements are NOT a 10 game lottery to advance you through the ranks. Your account ended last season G1 and it's eyeing you around G3/G2. What exactly is the issue here?
Sure, I guess this acct was G1. But I'm not a G1 player. The game should figure that out. And no, its not different than any other season. I'm saying its been this way forever and it sucks. Just like last season, and the season before, and the one before that....

: the gotta sell popstar kaisa tho b4 the nerfs
the champ is the worst designed champ in the game. She has everything and is weak at no point of the game. Tell me the counterplay.
: Look at this!!!! Riot your system is broken!
I voted no to permabanned for this alone, but if this was your first offense you should still get a 5-10 chat banned. I'm guessing it wasn't your first time. Hence the permaban. Anytime you send 50+ messages in a 25 min game and get reported by a couple people, ur gonna get banned. And should. You shouldn't be sending 3 messages a minute in game ever hahaha.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: June 20
I really think the easier change is instead of buffing adc items by making them cheaper, keep them the same price, and instead revert some of the tower weakening. Just give tanks and adcs a little more of a chance to get there.
: why do people bring up mastery level? all it takes is 2 lucky games and just allot of time to get mastery lvl 7, hell you can get mastery lvl 7 on garen by playing nothing but AP garen...
First off, its 5 S's. Second off, it still means you have played the champ for at least a good 60 games, and have racked up 5 S's AFTER 50 games or so. So you have a better understanding of what that champ does, idk. I think its a fair point showing you have shown some mastery on a champ. Hence "Mastery" haha.
: Pyke's not getting banned because he's real strong I think, but mainly because a bunch of people who never played Assassins much giving him a Yasuo-syndrome reputation. The buffs on his E and ult are pretty fair I feel, since it's telegraphed enough that they can be dodged by a good number of champs. So yeah. It'll be some concrete buffs to his lategame, especially on high AD builds, but with how his kit works, it'll be much more fair and balanced than a Leblanc combo for example. But yeah, the Yasuo-syndrome rep some have given Pyke is 90% the reason he gets banned a lot I'd say {{sticker:sg-ahri-1}}
True. And that's why i'd like to see him buffed outside of his ult. While I actually believe his ult is honestly harder to hit than you think (it is a skill shot, and any heal, shield, mobility, flash, etc can instantly stop the chain), its still an execute and people will not enjoy that. But yeah I agree, that mechanic alone is going to be like "meh, just ban it". BUT, I also think the ban will come down too because right now a lot of players, because he's so new, just ban him for that reason. Like, I just don't want to play against a champ I don't fully understand what he's trying to do to me.
: Please DO NOT Buff Pyke (from a Pyke Main - Mastery Lvl 7)
Update. Please check win rate again. 10-1 in my last 11. Still unreal KDA. Please do NOT buff!
: Not saying it's not a buff, but the base value changes for both E and R do actually have a bit of significance. It's more of a buff to his mid-late, with which I'm fine, because his full rotation only breaks even with live at around 110 bonus AD. Doesn't feel like that much of a buff from my testing on the PBE, not until later into the game. I think it'll put him on the stronger side, but not overpowered.
Well maybe I'm just a good Pyke player. I'm just saying I usually have around lets say, 250 AD - 375 AD after 20 minutes. so starting my chain ult at 50-75 more health (straight execution), I'm just saying, it feels pretty nice, and my e will so 60-90 AD damage more, so if I have nothing changed, i can start my ult chain at about 90-150 more health. Idk, maybe that's not that huge of a buff but I feel like it will pan out to be, cuz not only is it the first ult, but in those late game team fights, if i get three off, that's a LOT more damage. Idk. I just wanna play my champ, and its fine right now, and its already getting banned a lot! :D
: The changes are actually a nerf to Pyke builds that have lower AD and higher resists, and a buff to high AD builds. So it's a tweak to push him towards more of an assassin playstyle as Riot intended.
It's still a buff. If you look at my builds. I usually go BC and Duskblade every game. If they have a magic damage at all, I will go Maw, If they are AD heavy I will go with like a dead mans/GA. Sometimes even thornmail if it makes sense. Boots I've run all of them (greaves is not bad, again, helps with clear, swifties are nice as well especially with the celerity changes). So basically, what I'm saying is I'm putting up these numbers now, these buffs will make it much worse. I'm not running tank builds most games (warrior, maw, ga, cleaver, duskblade). You are straight buffing him SO hard. In fact, they are only nerfing his base stats on his E and barely (by like 10? and his ult at MAX lvl by 10? you can make that up with like 7 AD). Don't be fooled. This is a BIG buff.

: High Ping: League Specific
CenturyLink user in MN. Same issue. Normally at 33 and sat at around 80-140 all night last night. Not only that but I felt some frame drop. Lost a ranked game off it. Very frustrating. Also completely league specific. All other games and ping fine. Hopefully this is fixed when I get home from work tonight :). Haven't tried in past 14 hours.

: Lissandra's passive consumes Mana Band's free spell
: The new rewards suck.
I think like someone else posted, if you play like 3 or less games a day, it's actually better, the bingers, yeah, they lose out. That being said, overall, it's pretty close. I'm not going to stop playing the game, and if I have time, I'll still play the 10 games in a day I want to. The BIGGEST travesty is that now to upgrade to lvl 6 and lvl 7 mastery, you literally have to blow all of your blue essence to do so, which is completely unfair. They need a hotfix for this badly. I would like to upgrade to lvl 6 and lvl 7, but when its at the expense of other items, that really sucks.

: Banned for "Intentional" Feeding, but wasn't intentional.
I just looked at your match history. It does not appear that you have a history of inting. So you have that going for you. That being said. I have a hard time believing you went 0-14-1 and didn't int. The next closest person on your team had 7 deaths...you essentially ran it down. The smite doesn't help your case. Also, if its any consolation prize, there's no way you make gold in a month. Judging by your match history. It would be a long shot to climb that fast when I'm looking at your cs and kda. Maybe your macro is ok, but when you have 14 deaths on Darius, I doubt it. You have 0 armor or MR and died 14 times. I mean. BC and swifties OK on dar but not when you are that far behind. Gotta switch up the build man and give yourself a chance. Tells me your macro ain't that great either.

: Maybe we should give it some time to pan out in the pre-season, but if it turns out to be really bad for the game and unhealthy on live I hope riot is able to do the right thing and remove them..
agreed. My initial reaction on the plants is negative, but let's give it a chance people. It could actually be fun and better for the game.
: It happens now though. Not much would change. I see people in master tier who get flamed at for being shit. And I seriously doubt they were boosted.
This is very true. There are so many variables in the system that complaining about premades as the core problem is actually quite hilarious. For instance. I'm a JG main. It's the reason I'm in gold. If I kept playing JG every single game, I would climb to plat the fastest. However, I get bored and I like playing other positions. I might be more of a low silver level player when I play ADC compared to the ADC that's in Gold because of their ADC skills. Or take into account there are people that pick illoai for the first time in ranked and are matched up against an irelia who has 300 ranked games on the champ. There is no perfect system. Creating a solo que will not stop feeders. "Feeding" is inately part of the game (it's called losing to the person across from you). Obviously there's a difference between someone going 0-2 or 0-3 and someone going 0-9, but a lot of people are already tilted at 0-2 haha. Everyone has gotten shit on in league, and everyone has dominated a lane. Everyone's been on both sides. Everyone has been on a team with 4 people, and everyone has been on the team playing a team with an AFK. Everyone has had a player say they are running down mid. These message boards are mostly people that just can't handle losing. Accept there are things you can't control, and focus on your hard skills with your champion (cs, positioning, etc). The best players in the world are that way because they can accept these facts. Which means they are getting better every game they play instead of losing focus at the 10 min mark. Also, playing down is part of the game as well. sometimes having a feeder on your team is practice on how to play league when your team is down. Every once in a while you get 5 people that can do it properly and end up coming back.

: [Resolved] 4/28 Server Issues - Ranked Disabled/Reconnect Spikes
I finally get to play after 24 hours of not playing due to my ISP and now this happens?! Come on RIOT! Get your stuff together!
: [RESOLVED] 4/28 Continued Maintenance -- Ranked will be Disabled/Possible DC's
ISP: Centurylink Location: Minnetonka, MN I can log in now. Was down for about 24 hours. from Wednesday morning - Thursday morning.
: [RESOLVED] 4/28 Continued Maintenance -- Ranked will be Disabled/Possible DC's
5am PDT and still can't log in in MInneapolis - Centurylink Customer.
: So...By this time tomorrow those of us who use WoWway and CenturyLink will be able to hop in a game? Do we get 2 free days of the first win xp boost, as we are going to miss out on a days worth. Potentially more if the server maintenance is half-assed again. {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}}
I wish I could log into the game, as well. Hopefully that is resolved.
: Same here....{{item:3070}}
Same exact thing here. Located in Minnetonka, west side of Minneapolis, MN. Also, ran a trace route. This is what showed up on my desktop: "Unable to resolve target system name 192.64.174.65.."
