: Can't do IP address bans anymore, did before, banned campuses, also internet cafes and hotspots.
fair. SOMETHING need's to be done though. This kind of behavior is making people not want to play the game, driving away new players, and the currents punishments don't seem to stop anyone anymore since they know they can just make a new account and be fine.
: I'm giving away free gift skins
i really wouldn't mind the Fesitval Queen skin for Anivia, maybe even bligewater swain... im still new to the game, i've only been playing since the akali rework, so there's a LOTTTT of skins i don't have and wish i did lol. it's sad to see people leaving, im personally really happy i found this game. it's probably too late to comment on this but here's my hoping lol im sorry you're frustrated man.

: You should always build Morellonomicon instead of Liandry's Torment, even as DOT mage.
I know this thread is a little old so i'm sorry, but due to how little attention it got anyway i hope it's ok to leave a comment. Morellonomicon does have the pen that Liandry's doesn't, and i could see how it would be better for straight up deleting squishes, but Liandry's passive's both make it much better for teamfight's. The longer the fight goes, your damage goes up by 10% already, and you also have a passive burn on top of that to help melt through tankier people. The flat pen on {{item:3165}} is nice against people with low MR or just their base MR stat's, but against people stacking lot's of health or such, it isn't a lot of MP at all. Im speaking mostly from the perspective of {{champion:34}} , since i have the most experience on her, but {{item:3151}} is sssooo nice on her since it basically just straight up increases the damage you deal with your blizzard, and you're already a great teamfight champ as it is. just my thoughts.

So far the only champ I've found that I enjoy playing who I don't feel useless on is Anivia. That's ADCs for you, unfortunately. As a damage dealing squishy, once you're behind, you can't interact with enemy champions so much. You CAN interact with objectives and play the map better, so you can still win, though. If feeling useless tilts you, I recommend joining the ranks of SUPPORT MAIN. It's nearly impossible to become useless. A Blitzcrank's CC always works the same.

It's nearly impossible to become useless. A Blitzcrank's CC always works the same. I've got a list of characters I wanna try, I'm just not sure why I struggle so much on ADC haha. Plus since essence is so slow to gain, I'm kinda stuck with only so many characters I even like until I can get more on that list. Currently the only characters I have that I enjoy playing are Anivia, Xayah, Tristana, jinx, ekko (who I'm aware I'm bad at but I'm learning), and Miss fortune (to a degree. Just kinda boring and bored of her). I also own Gangplank and Twisted fate, both of whom I think are fun but I'm not even remotely sure how to best utilize

She's...eh. I'm not against her, she's just, nothing special. Plus I'm suck of her wrecking me every single game at this point. She's got a semi interesting kit but a mostly boring character is all Edit: well that, plus, she's everywhere, and I'm sick of getting run over by straight lethality MF
: go to http://na.op.gg/champion/statistics and look at 'bot' I'd say avoid the lower tiers. But the fact is you shouldn't be playing ranked yet so focus on having fun, so the winrates aren't that important. But if you're playing a variety of characters, you'll find you lose more on lower tiers. There are different things that ruin an experience for different people. So for example, if you have issues getting 1-shot by Zed, Xayah counters that. If you hate being weak early, Jhin is a lane bully. If you like farming and teamfighting- Jinx is insanely fun. As long as you find something you love and avoid the tilters, you'll enjoy playing ADC. You've stuck with it, so I doubt you're an average person who plays it only when it's strong.

: I'm a support main, I used to have an ADC main duo, and many ADC mains to play with. But this year they've been dropping like flies. Since the nerf, all my friends have quit playing ADC, even if they trust me as a support, it's just a pitiful experience right now. The recent nerf was coming up 2 months ago? I think? Just when you started. ADCs used to have more health and 'resistences', and they used to heal faster in lane. They did more damage early, and they had items that made them more powerful faster. A lot of people considered them overpowered, and were unhappy that as long as a team protected their adc, they tended to win. But as Riot made these changes to make adcs more of the 'lategame class' they should be, the were still making other changes that made the game end faster, (they've been shortening games for nearly a year) ADCs became very weak. The reduced health let 'poke' champions (you've faced Lux, yes?) pick on them more. The reduced damage meant a champion with a lot of health could be in their lane, and if the ADC ever tried to fight, they would lose. Right now ADCs are relying on {{item:3095}} a lot, but it doesn't suit all of them. And without tanks to protect them, and so many AP supports that are bad at protecting them, it feels REALLY bad to play in a lot of scenarios. (*edit to make it clearer ^_^)

The reduced damage meant a champion with a lot of health could be in their lane, and if the ADC ever tried to fight, they would lose. So what do you even do as ADC anymore? I feel like I get thrashed every time I play one, and I would love to improve if I can, but I can't figure out what to change, be it playstyle, items, runes, etc.

: it was a combination of many things that made ADCs pretty bad, like bad enough that you didn't even want to pick them It's mostly better now, and if the meta shifts to tankier stuff they will become a lot better again

I keep trying Xayah, who I think is a really fun and interesting character, but I constantly feel like no matter what I do or build I'm always dead before I'm even able to do anything, whereas some ADC like miss fortune seem to melt my whole team before I even get there
