: When you're 8-1 on riven and game is winnable but team FF's
It's very nice when someone dies in the first minute and then alt f4s and never comes back meanwhile 30 minutes later you are butchering the enemy team in every team fight but it's hard to push and close out without 5. very nice

As a ryze one trick main there is a very high chance my team will ban ryze to prevent me from playing him if I hover him so I just can't hover my pick. I don't know why riot hasn't done this yet.
: look at most champs with low fukin pick rate .. they all got 51-55% win rate .. its because only OTP's are playing it .. fukin hell use ur brain.. ivern 53%, quinn 55%, aatrox 53%, kind 54%, olaf 53%, sol 55%, kayle 51%, draven 55%, udyr 55%, now look at shaco when he had 2% pick rate .. he was at 55% win rate .. now he's at 3.20% pick rate .. and his win rate dropped to 52% !!

I don't see why one trick players should have higher win rates as their main champ if almost all their games are that one champ unless they are below their mmr. Honestly hate this champ anyway. Stealth isn't a play and when shaco comes out of being invisible and instantly one shots you I'm sure no one thinks "damn I got outplayed." Stealth is just a cheesy mechanic and cheesy strategies mainly exist to beat opponents of greater skill level than you.
: The horrifically-flawed system known as MMR is getting fixed...
The current mmr system is good. Amazingly good considered the fact that the league competitive culture is based around the convenience of solo queue rather than pre formed teams like wow was for arena. How do you measure the fact that your tryndamere just got dogpiled on top by 4 people and killed enabling your team to push down a tower and inhib bot lane? As far as a performance based system would go, tryndamere fed and that's it. He didn't do tower damage. He didn't get a kill or assist.

: Right to decline Autofill
Auto fill is pretty bad riot incorrectly assumes that everyone is equally skilled at every role and nearly equally enjoys every role, no exceptions. It's not just the person being autofilled that suffers if he is autofilled into a role they are uncomfortable with they hurt everyone.
: how to not get so heated and rage at league( i need it)
You ever have games were you do really well? 20/2 or something? You ever have games were you go 0/7? Everyone has both. Your teammate might just be having the latter but they've had games were they've done really well too. You are matched with people of similar skill and despite what some say, mmr is a good, accurate system. I think it is a good idea to compliment people who are doing badly whenever they do something good because it lightens the mood especially for them. Even if team has said nothing he knows what everyone is thinking and might say something bad based off of that which is going to set off everyone else and get them flaming.
: Things that went awry since Ghostcrawler joined Riot
Some issues are valid but remember when games were longer the threads were often about late game meta champs being too good and as someone put it "game went on long enough and whoever had the best late game comp won" = sums up a lot of what people were saying back then for those who forgot... Jungle diversity seems to be at its worst by far though and I hate how almost always jg starts on the bottom side it makes it more predictable.
: Riot says Losing Lane is INTING, no matter the ranks you're against. They deleted my post.
Hard to say without actually viewing the replay but couple thoughts on this in the ops defense: 1) There is nothing ban worthy about claiming to be feeding. I could see it if his team was flaming him and he was just taunting them back in a sarcastic manner. 2) As someone with over 2000 ryze games played across a few games I know that when you are behind by a lot you can be absolutely murdered repeatedly just trying to cs under tower. Whenever my ryze gets sniped by the enemy team I've caused them double digit deaths in even some short games and they get flamed relentlessly by their team over it. edit: Was he top too? didn't bother to look before top ryze is EXTREMELY fragile and if you are behind you are absolutely done. This isn't s4 top ryze cancer we are talking about here.
: #TWICH HAS 51% WIN RATE. OP OP OP!!!! NERF NERF NERF!!! HE CAN KILL ADC IN 2 HITS, WHILE HE HAS LOWER BASE AD AND ATTACK SPEED AND ATTACK RANGE, SO THERE IS NO COUNTERPLAY FOR ENEMY ADC TO POSSIBLY SURVIVE THAT, WHEN HE ONLY HAS HIGHER BASE AD, SAME AMOUNT OF ITEMS, STRONGER EARLY GAME AND HIGHER BASE HP!!! #THERE IS NO WAY THAT THERE ARE SUPPORTS IN THIS GAME, BECOUSE EVERYBODEY KNOWS THAT ADCS ARE MADE TO GO SOLO, SO THEY CAN GET COUGHT FOR TWICH TO KILL THEM!!! Look at the win rates on op.gg. you should srsly look at the numbers becouse twich with 2 crit items, if he crit both attacks, he would only take 24%--33% of hp with his ult on!! If not ahead or behind, while ezreal with same amount of gold could simply trow 2 skillshots, blink back and ult twich, maybe flash and 1 more q/w on twich if he somehow manages to survive the dmg that is suppost to take 120% of his hp..

Wow only 51% win rate that changes everything! When he comes out of stealth and kills my champ instantly before my cast time goes off on 2 of my abilities I know that it is actually because I am outplayed and outmechanic-ed. Maybe I'll change my ban rate of him from 100% to only 99%.

You don't have to win to have fun you don't have to win every game or even close to every game to climb. Once you accept this you will probably be less stressed.

: [GAMEPLAY] Seraph's Embrace visual bug
It seems like if I die right after using seraphs embrace the visual sticks for the rest of the game pretty annoying and only started happening in the last few days since the eve patch
: Welp had a good run, guess gold isn't in the cards.
low mmr does have a serious issue with closing out games. If you catch and kill or win a team fight and its 5v3 the winning team will back or do jg or farm or something but in plat+ they will push down objectives relentlessly when ahead in player count. A big issue too is that it is extremely rare, I have found, that they will listen to you when you ask them not to back or do wolves when they can take a tower.
: [Philosophy] Dear Ranked players, what motivates you?
Regular games and ranked games are basically the same if you think about it both have mmr. Ranked just gives you a shiny medal saying what that mmr is. That being said I think people take the game more seriously in ranked which makes it more enjoyable for me. I rarely see any toxicity and win or lose most games I leave feeling good and everybody mostly happy. That might have a lot to do with the times I play at though. 12a-6pm, no kids at all.

: i actually have a lot of trouble recognising when to ping, do I ping as soon as I can't see them for 4 seconds? I don't wanna pin if they are still in lane so I don't spam or something like that. Also I have tunnel vision, if they push and I need to defend turret, I'm focused on farm until I hear "DOUBLE KILL!"

You can ping whenever or not at all sometimes people will flame you if you don't ping but at the end of the day it is your own personal responsibility to notice when an enemy laner in any lane is missing. It's expected for you to take advantage of this if your laner shows up somewhere else. Shoving tower is sometimes the best option, if you are too behind to make the 3v3 work not to mention if the enemy laner dissapears in a bush he might be just trying to lure you into a fight and if you are a squishy mage it's too risky to check. You could try putting a ward down in the middle of the lane towards the enemys side to see if he leaves and which lane he goes to.
: What Elo do players stop feeding so hard? (serious question)
Unless you have a small sample size of games mmr is placing you with similar skilled players - something to think about
: Why are people shocked when they are banned?
I imagine a lot of people are banned by reports coming from people flaming them first and people defending themselves.

So easy and freelo, so it should be no problem for you. Can I get those skins? : ) Technically I qualify
: Why ranked is broken : Ranked matchmaking should be elo/devision based and not mmr based.
> The thing with mmr is that nobody but riot uses it Everyone uses it actually and it is a good system. League players complain about it because they do not understand it but in other games that use it people largely do not complain about it, except for the lowest of the low. If a plat player is playing against a bunch of silvers its because the plat players mmr tanked horribly (probably because he bought it or was carried somehow) but being demoted from leagues is difficult to do but his mmr is an accurate representation of his current performance.
: If you're playing casually, legitimately casual play, yet decide you want to do ranked, then odds are that you are going to feed. So let's get that out of the way first. So if you're doing ranked it's safe to assume you want to do well. Going off that assumption the complaint is that it takes too much time to get what you need for bare minimum right? Well, it still takes at least that long to get good enough with a few champs to not result in the aforementioned feeding. In fact, the reason you have a 16 champ requirement is so that you both can survive ban phase with a playable champ and you will have at that point been playing for long enough that you should be at least somewhat capable of feeling like you did something in ranked other than die a lot. People feed in ranked from bad games, that happens and there's nothing wrong with that. However, if you actually want to do well then you'd take longer than it takes to acquire the minimum champs/runes just to get used to the game. I get where it's irritating having to wait that long, but really with the free champ rotation and the fact that there are some fun cheap champs I'd say new players will be fine until they get the ip they need. Besides, it takes a while for new players to even know what they want to buy with the ip. As for experienced players, well, you don't need a new account anyways. Let the new players fight new players and don't be smurf jerk just because you're bored or want some kind of ego boost. I used to say with the exception of wanting to do ranked with other roles as the main, but now there's two separate ranked ques. One for your main role, one for you to fuck off with. If that's not enough then you're just being high maintenance at that point, and those hoes get dumped. That being said, if you are one of the people who are wanting to do ranked, but are just shy of having all you need to do it. Well, honestly the lesson in patience is gonna pay off when playing ranked. Can't hand out participation ribbons to everyone, some people have to get the short end of the stick. Anyways, that's my 2 cents. Take it or leave it, doesn't bother me either way :)
> If you're playing casually, legitimately casual play, yet decide you want to do ranked, then odds are that you are going to feed. Actually no because of how mmr works, you'll be paired with similar skilled players. There is also a reason why they would want to play ranked instead of normals. The advantage of playing ranked vs normal is that people generally take it more seriously and also surrender less often so you are less likely to have a game just end out of the blue 20 min in if you are enjoying it. In fact now that I Think about it casual doesn't even mean bad at all.. plenty of people play this game rarely and are at plat/diamond This game is relatively simple to some of the other competitive games out there and honestly anyone with experience with a similar game or even wow or sc2/wc3 would be able to play at a gold level within days of picking up this game and you certainly don't even really NEED a large champ pool I played a single role and a single champion to diamond every season I've played and I never have problems. Not really arguing that every champ should be unlocked in rank (I think it should) but I know riot would never do that for $$ reasons. Just thought I would point out some things though. I guess it isn't unreasonable for them to expect people to pay at least some money on this game though. They have to fund it somehow.
: Say your damn role in Champ Select!
I play support brand and here is what happens a lot of times: Me: Support Brand *last pick locks in alistair* hmm... mid alistair ok why not GAME STARTS Alistair: wtf brand you're mid
: No one complained about Zed before mana regen nerfs
I remember a circlejerk thread awhile back where the op stated that zed was so well balanced and had healthy counterplay options to him and every post were people agreeing like they were all high and someone imagined a "good" idea. Skip right ahead to restarting this game and the exact opposite threads appear.
: If as a solo laner, you absolutely depend on jungle ganks to win your lane, you're a shit player
There are some atrocious snowbally lanes though. Imagine facing a ryze as riven or some melee. If ryze gets slightly ahead you can't even farm the melee minions under tower. I could imagine they'd be upset if the jungler refused to come.
