Irelia, Ekko and even elise when played at a high level are good champions, however, when played by players who are not very good at the game will struggle to make use of all the champions mechanics in the correct way.
It's almost like you can't read. When they came out, they didn't need a high skill cap. Because they were absurdly overloaded. Then they got nerfed into the ground and you have to be a fantastic player to use them well, because their kit is very finely tuned.
: I think buying Camille is a bad idea..
Riot's strategy for selling new champs. Create new champ with interesting, but overloaded kit. Sell a ton when he/she/it comes out Let that champ dominate for a full cycle longer than a champ normally would, people feel safe and buy the champ when they feel like Riot won't nerf him/her/it. Once they've sold as many as they need to, nerf the shit out of the champ and then claim that the champion is playable but has an extremely high skillcap. See also: Elise, Irelia, Ekko...

Playing to lose / suboptimal pick is trolling. In this case, 'support' singed with smite is HARD trolling. You can troll all you want in normals, but keep that out of ranked or you will get justifiably reported.
Playing not to win is the only trolling that should be bannable. If you pick a suboptimal champ into a ranked game, it's not justified, especially if the player is playing to win. Dude won 53% of his games up to plat 3. That's not trolling, it's not a trollpick, he's just doing it differently than you want him to. And that argument is myopic. This line of thought allows players who don't pick a counter pick if their opponents have first picked in lane, or if they pick a countered champ into a known counter matchup to be reported and banned because it's not acceptable meta. This is a road Riot doesn't, and shouldn't want to go down.

Gotta define a trollpick though. That particular support pick was attempting to win through the best means he knew how. It wasn't intentional feeding, he was simply using his skillset differently than the players around him wanted him to, or understood. Riot has long stood for the argument that you should be ale to play whoever you want, wherever you want. If you play that champ to the best of your abilities, it shouldn't be a bannable offense. Suddenly they've flipped on it, because their new reports system is broken and relies on weight of reports and number of reports instead of having a real human element look at the reports. It's Garbage and Riot needs to look into their practices.

As a Singed Main, There really isn't anything more satisfying than running down an enemy with my core build and flipping them and then watching them struggle to get away as they choke to death on my slowing poison.

: Ocean drake is viable. Cloud drake however is still at a point where people only take it in hopes of something good(anything other than a cloud drake) spawning after.
Ocean Drake may be viable, but even at LCS level games, its as uncontested as Wind Drake. Also: It takes longer for teams to collect Ocean Drake on average than Wind Drake once it spawns. By roughly 18 seconds on average. Meaning it is considered a low priority by all players than Wind Drake.. Although As far as Drakes go, Fire/Earth are collected almost immediately, meanwhile Air/Ocean usually are collected 1-2 minutes after spawinging.

: I don't know 100% why I cannot climb. Please help me.
I'm not plat. But I will tell you, the thing that helped me get into gold was to become really focused on objectives. I got to a point where even though I would lose lane, I would play champions that didn't care if the lost in the lane phase, and still had a strong presence in the late game. (Singed, Sion, Tanky Fizz, Tanky Ekko.) You need to learn Macro. Every time there's an opportunity to take dragon. You take it. Every opportunity to take the Top Buff be it Baron or the other, you do that. Every time you can take a tower, you prioritize that over kills. A lot of people think that you have to get kills to take towers mid and late game. Not even remotely true. If you learn that if your opponents are all in one area, the further they are away from a tower objective, the bigger the mistake is. So if it's a 5 man bot, and you're top, you push like you're giving birth. Stuff like that will carry you far further than going 18-2-34 every game in lane.
: Why did I even buy garen
Garen really isn't a bad champ, has very few actual counters, and can fill a real niche on a team. I'm terrible with him too though
: How to reach gold in Dynamic Queue (Dynamic Queue Survival Guide)
Shinkominori's guide to gettin' carried. Why not put more into learning how to win your lane and be solid with champions and begin to take over the entire map with your presence more often than not? You'll get into gold like that too.

: How long will league last?
it won't become a "dead game" for several more years. but the game you love and enjoy today will not be the same game you are playing in 2 years. this may be a bad thing, or a good thing. the game I played 2 years ago is worse than the game I'm playing today. in most aspects. If riot could only pull their heads out of their ass and give us SoloQ and the Winter 5's map back, I'd be happy.
: Fiora is horribly bad now.
good. She was a nightmare of untuned opness in the toplane and was bullshitty no matter what you did with her. I'm glad she's trash.
: Went 14/0/15 as zed and lost a ranked game
I don't care how many kills you got. Until Riot adds a win condition that is "When you have 30 more kills than your opponent you immediately win the game" you KDA means very little. Next time you're like 5-0 as a zed against your mid-laner. Take his tower. Then roam bottom, with a gank that kills to people and TAKE THE TOWER Then you roam top and get a nother double kill that kills the enemy jungler and their toplaner... TAKE THE GODDAMN TOWER. Then when you push your enemy out of his lane TAKE YOUR SECOND TOWER. Also... If you get a few kills on bot, TAKE DRAGON. This game is won when you kill the nexus. If you think 14/0/15 is akin to taking the nexus, you're horribly misguided.

: how do you think i got 4 accounts? ill make a new one and play it to silver 5 where ill see you calling everyone above you boosted and a liar. miss me with that shit.
Here's my problem with that: Just about everyone who gets out of BRONZE realizes that it's an endeavor that requires quite a bit of grinding, and that some games you just. can't. win. And again, while it may not be your fault that you lost, it's definitely your fault that you didn't win. You want to call me a trash human being, but you sound like Tyler1 without the intentional feeding. Never understanding why he's not ranked #1 on the planet. I'm not jealous of you being where you're at. You probably have a bigger penis than me, and don't live in your mom's basement, or a trailer somewhere, and you probably pull mad shaved tang every night. Good for you.** But you ought to act like it. ** You're boosted kid, because you haven't learned lessons that you're supposed to be taught in bronze. If you're not boosted, good for you. **Act like it.**
: i got to diamond in the first 2 months, but this isnt the point. you need to shut the fuck up and realize you're a pile of garbage that expresses his jealousy by calling other people boosted then explaining that complaining about a game like this pile of shit makes me a liar. shut the fuck up please. and report me all you want, because in the end if i do get this comment removed it means im right and you're a sensitive jealous tool. ive gotten 4 accounts to diamond and sooner or later im going to queue with u and see u ruin my game

So the only way you'll queue with me is after your inevitable boosted freefall back to silver.
: idk man. u being gold 5 s5 then going 8-16 is pretty spooky when u say im boosted.
I'm not the one bitching about my ranked games and how I can't carry hard enough to win a game. I realized getting to Gold that there's nothing I can do about 40% of my games and there's nothing my opponents can do about 40% of their games, meaning that in the last 20% of the games played, I do shit that matters. That's it. Once I plateaued and hit my skillcap. I have no problem admitting that I'm a High Silver/Low Gold player. No woman has ever thrown her panties at me for lying about being diamond. I got to gold in the first 4 weeks of last season, and haven't really played ranked since. If you don't understand that there's high variance once you get to a level that is at your current skillcap, it means you're boosted. No 2 ways about it.
: nothing is more annoying than getting 2v1ed all game only to see your bot lane lose you the game
You would think someone who was D5 wouldn't complain as hard about variance in a game like this. How much did it cost you to boost?

: Make singed a Juggernaut rework
I think you can keep most just about all of Singed's identity in a touch up. But I do really think that his passive and his Ult and his W need to be looked at. I would create synergy so that a top tier Singed could E an opponent, and then lay down a W pool where they are going to land while they are mid-flip so you can stick your opponent int he glue skilfully and it doesn't require your opponent to be braindead to do it. I also think that Singed should get a speed boost running through his own pool, and that he needs passive speed and health from his mana pool. Too many champions today are too fast for Singed... think about that.

: permanent supsension for winning a game?

: Has anybody thought of Chat Disabling?
Tyler1's Toxicity didn't just stem from him being an asshole in chat. He also had a burn list, where if he played with people that he was mad at, he would purposely feed, and throw a game to "get back at the person" for the loss. So if you have a shitty game with Douchebag1 and go 0-10 as his jungler, he would throw the game just to get back at you. Somehow Sneaky and Meteos ended up on this list.. which was hillarious. Furthermore, he would give up and start running down midlane and suiciding down mid over and over and over if the game was more than a few kills out of hand, or someone else made a mistake. Banning Tyler1 from chat wouldn't have stopped him from doing that. In fact it probably would have caused him to do it more.
: Best way to deal with singed proxy farming?
All of these replies are hillariously misguided. 1) Get others to help kill him? 2) He's bad late game? 3) He'll give up? As a Singed 1 Trick Pony, I climbed into Gold during the height of Singed Proxy madness. A proxying Singed tells his midlane "If your opponent leaves to chase me, push your lane like you're giving birth" The Singed player is also doing that sort of crap to keep the jungler top. He tells his Jungler "Camp Bottom, and Camp Mid and snowball them. Even if I lose, I can come back and farm hard once I get a couple of core items" So suddenly, his strategy is to purposely lose his lanes, to help his team win 2 lanes, and he can still make a huge difference late game. So how do you deal with a proxying Singed? Let him proxy, and tell your Jungler, to clear his way up and gank later as his normal path. Don't let your teammates leave their lanes, don't let your Jungler just leave what he's doing because he see's a Juicy Singed being an idiot between the top 2 turrets. And for the love of god, if you and your jungler pinch him, and he gets away. don't chase him forever. go back to your lane, re-set it... and use the re-set minions to try to push to his tower. If he's back behind your tower, continue to farm hard, and you'll carry as hard for your team, as he'll carry for his. If you start chasing his ass around, and using your Jungler top all the time to pressure him, you're playing into his game, and you'll lose in the next 20 minutes and have no clue why.

You don't build the tear into Seraph's. You sell the tear and Get whatever item will help you win. Often times it's Rabadons. 1000 Mana and 250 HP for only 750 gold? That's Gold Efficiency like you wouldn't believe. Singed is mana starved if you use his Q aggressively. Tear allows him to turn it on and leave it on. Fire and Forget. You get 500HP and 800 Mana and 120 AP for 3k Gold. And it's inefficient as all hell. What I posted is Inverted Composers (Best Singed World probably) signature build. He and Druid Droid did lots of work and lots of math to show that Tear is obscenely gold efficient and obscene on Singed.
