: The reasoning, from what I can understand behind that, is that at high elo dying has a much bigger consequence than at lower elo. Lower elo you kinda brush it off, down a few hundred gold but whatever, not that big, but higher elo punishes so much harder for small mistakes. Although technically not inting, 0/2 in high diamond and 0-2 in gold are completely different monsters
There's also the matter of "trading kills" when one is your 2/0 Jungler and the other is an 0/2 Support. The jungler loses out so much more because shut down, objective control, as well as all the gold pocketed from it through assists. While the reasoning is there, it doesn't detract from the hostility that breeds from every death being an "intentional feed" when you simply get caught. It enforces a negative mindset that the person who died did so to bring your team down and thus lowers the morale of everyone else. It could be a 1v5 under tower, but hindsight 20/20 in that everything could be prevented simply by avoiding the situation which is impossible unless you're a mind reader. In short, every death I could easily argue is inting because you _knowingly and willingly_ took a trade / decision that resulted in your demise. Ergo, you can't say "I didn't know they dive me" when you stayed, their team was missing and you were being pushed which means it would be a better decision to forfeit the objective for your life. This should not be the case in a **_team-based strategy game._**

I like taking it as a safer option compared to thunderlord's where proc'ing it mostly consits of E-E- auto which means I have to get in range and, being a burst mage, is bad as I'll become prone to ganking.

: Every time Nidalee throws spear on a Champion
: What Champion do you Think Will get the Next Ultimate Sin?
ADC, Jungle, Support, Mid, so we're just missing a top laner. Of all that's seen play or is super popular, I'm going to guess either Fiora or Galio. Unless that Pulsefire Caitlyn is real then that's the next one.
Fikule (EUW)
: Any other non-mid players use mid as their secondary role to always get their primary?
I'll do Support-Mid from time to time. If I q for Top/ADC/Jungle, I'll somehow manage to get it every other game. Not that I'm terrible (apart from top), I'm not all that great either and I get the luck of facing high plats on their mains whenever I'm filled in those roles.
: when did i say i dodged?
Well, if you're at 0 LP, and you dodge, it goes to -3 and so on, not sure if there's a limit and wanted to make a joke. In a more serious note, take a break if you're on a losing streak or learn what's going wrong (and don't say "omg, shit teammates are holding me back" because you're missing what exactly is going wrong such as mis-positioning or bad map control)
: need help, 0 to 98 to -80 (about to demote)
If you're at -80, you might want to stop dodging...

: So i asked myself...animu/waifu thread
Love the music and like the art. Sidenote: I've always loved the "glassy" shine of eyes when it came to waifus, never understood why.
: Why do so many supports have such a massive victim complex?
Being a support main, I have an ass of an ADC once maybe in 200 games or so and usually it's been my fault (not sarcastically, I actually legit screw up and get my teammates killed). I think people just want to complain cause they got stuck in the role and want to carry but instead tick off teammates. ie Support Singed and "omg, I'm helping my team!" and play more like a second role. My biggest complaint is people yelling at me to stop dying even though it gets us an Ace and my score is some 2/6/45.
: I really hope SKT don't win international tournaments this year
I'm willing to bet SKT is going to win again simply because the West don't really put out good enough teams. C9 gets overconfident which makes them run into a wall, TSM chokes when on the spot and the only real competitor were Edward Gaming and Rox Tigers, I think. Who knows, though, last year saw an almost upset when they were dethroned. Still, given how eSports is viewed outside of Korea, I'll be surprised if a NA or EU team wins.

: Does league have too much cc??
> Morgana = Snare, stun "Death Sentence" Also kind of surprising there's so few unique hard CCs (silence, taunt, pull) and it's more about the stunes and knockups (...Must be Yasuo's doing). A lot of them are skill-shots which would make sense, how many are targeted? That would make for an interesting fact. Lastly PUT IT ALPHABETICAL ORDER, YOU'RE KILLING ME
: I used to buy it on Soraka back when AP Soraka was possible AKA before they gutted most of the AP items she was viable with and gave her nerfs that forced her to max W first.
She's still decent if you invest in a Rylai's. 9/10 nobody ever expects it and I get a slow/stun off.
: Can we have the 6.9-6.22 Chalice back?
I just realized that I used to build it a lot on Lux and Sona, hardly Soraka but didn't play her a lot. Now I don't, not sure when it happened but I think the new Redemption item made it far more valuable of a purchase to ignore.
: Who to ban as Lux?
Fizz tends to be a problem for me since he can dodge most of your stuff, takes less damage and has a bleed. Katarina's another one since she can just pop you under tower.
: That Xerath Global Q exploit....

Petranese (EUNE)
: PBE items and mages???
Pretty sure Banshee's is the only decent mage item now, everything else is just pointing to rip any burst mage and potentially any other mages/ap assassins simply because Adaptive Helm alone nullifies their ability to take out squishies whom are going to be rushing {{item:3814}} as a second item Woo, a spell shield, how amazing. Now, let's see our armor options: {{item:3191}} {{item:3047}} {{item:3157}} and if you were desperate enough to build Tabi's, you're essentially cutting yourself in the Achille's since you need all the penetration you can get. As any Ahri knows, an Anivia Lane is quite literally the worst because, by the time you do a full rotation of spells to kill, you need to do it again on little to no mana. When Zeds and Talons are getting GA as a core item, good luck to any hope you have for winning or even surviving to get to the mid game.
SirΤeemο (EUNE)
: what's the actual range of ages between league players?
I'd honestly say they'd be in the low to mid 20s range. Just because you see the under 18s doesn't make up for the entire range. I'm 26 myself, two others I know are around there, gbay99 is there too. I'd say they're all playing Minecraft and Overwatch right now, though a poll might help a lot.
: The hardest skillshot to land?
I'd have to say Shen's E. I'm good enough to thread an Ahri charm between two minions with only like a pixel in between but for some reason I can never get his taunt off.

: Unpopular opinion: SRARAM is actually refreshing
Well, I mean I got to do Support Varus with a Caitlyn carry into a Kog-Galio Lane. We somehow won lane and won game, I don't know how, but my supporting skills are legendary.
: "Shit" seems like a remarkably underwhelming word to censor out of a game rated Teen, especially under this context. You figure, meanwhile, I'm playing Blazblue, another Teen rated game, and the main protag says things like "You little bitch! Piss off!" "You…piece of shit!" and "Worthless trash!" while fighting on the regular and not one person bats an eye.

: Follow-up to early Midseason Durability feedback
With so many items being made towards MR, is there any possibility of changes to Rabadon's Deathcap? It's too expensive of an item for a single raw stat. I often think of it as the mage version of Infinity Edge. Maybe lower the AP and add a tiny bit of Magic Penetration? There's not really much in the way for mages to deal with tanks apart from Void Staff. I remember getting cap as a second item way long ago. Now I hardly ever buy the thing because 1) I don't have enough slots to make the base components worth it or 2) if I build it early, I'm losing out on statistically better items including Morello's and Rylai's.
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: April 7
I think there might be a tad too many terms, but I wouldn't mind something like Specialist or Tactician since that's usually the main function of a Support. They're the ones running around the map, keeping teams up to fighting and in general have the best objective focus second only to junglers. Speaking of icons, has there been any talk of bringing back the old Team Builder icons? While on the subject, I just remembered something as I was on the PBE: could there be some way where hovering over the icon tells you what it is? It would be great for in case I forget the name or why I even go the icon such as the Birthday Poro.

Between reworked Banshee's, Adaptive Helm, and Gargoyle Stoneplate, any and all burst AP champions will become inviable to play. Heck, even Abyssal Scepter won't help mages anymore since it's geared towards tanks now instead of a mage's defensive item. The only items available for mages to deal with tanks are pretty much void staff, liandy's torment and rylai's for kiting. I would go so far as to say that all mages might be hurt, but given the passive of 15% less damage for 5 seconds, burst mages rely on that time window to get a rotation of spells off Also, this doesn't just go for Ahri, If the update goes through, it will be an AD/Tank meta which means AP/utility supports will also suffer. {{champion:37}} {{champion:16}} {{champion:267}} {{champion:99}} {{champion:25}} will never be seen again. You think Ahri's bad? Let's see how you feel when every game has {{champion:238}} {{champion:64}} {{champion:62}} {{champion:157}} {{champion:5}} {{champion:122}} all of whom can make perfect full use of the new items. If you ban them, you're still dealing with ~70 other champions in the category who can use items like the reworked GA.
: Question For Bronze Players
Skill and Knowledge are two separate things so yes, a bronze can have the understanding of a Plat+ while stuck there. Everyone has their own personal skill ceiling, you just need to work at it until it just clicks.
: Riot nerfing things around the lcs is not a precursor for Soloq
Pro play bleeds into soloq, do you know how many Faker Zeds I had to crunch in lane that did the Stormraider's rush? Let's not forget MF support and jungle TF.
: Anyone else skeptical on GA changes
{{champion:58}} {{champion:92}} {{champion:122}} {{champion:86}} Most likely the ones that will rush it as a first, if not second item. While 300 seconds is kind of a long time, seems like the benefits it provides outweigh the price.

: Did the vastaya dictate too much lore?
> existence of PARALLEL FUCKING UNIVERSES! This is what we call an "easy way out" to explain blind pick.
: Lucian has a 44% pick rate and a 52% percent win rate !
And yet people are still going to demand Lulu nefs because she's sitting at a 7% ban rate. Lucian is at less than 2% according to champion.gg.
: Why does Ahri want to be human now?
From what I remember, didn't she gain a conscience which stopped her from wanting to become fully human? I liked the idea of "Hey I can be human" and suddenly "What am I doing? This is wrong!" Then again, I love questioning morals.
