That's something that can only happen in low gold/silver/bronze, you can even turn that shit around by getting Rift Herald or Baron while they're all down getting Infernal. Stop thinking in the box, that's probably why you're having issues with 'Dynamic' elements like RNG.

: The best stretegic option for the RNG plant is to get rid of it before it gets involved in anything. Elemental dragon was never a good thing, because there is no stretegy involved. If you have strong bot lane and infernal drake you win, if it is not infernal you don't take it unless it's free. Drafting a strong bot lane for infernal drake is a strategy, getting infernal drake when you have strong bot lane is luck.

Drafting a strong bot lane for infernal drake is a strategy, getting infernal drake when you have strong bot lane is luck. As a Plat-level all of your points are incorrect. Control of Drake doesn't secure you the game, it just increases your chances. You can still throw very easily, which is the case a good 60% of the time, believe it or not. And my point on the plant is pointless in this debate since I wasn't even mentioning the plant, I was mentioning RNG as a whole. I view RNG as very healthy if kept to a low level of benefit. Just another thing to micromanage to take advantage of, and I approve of that.

Uhh... yes it does................................. How you 'USE' the RNG is what should be what matters, though, rather than the buff itself. Strategic options are what makes a STRATEGY game, and having to contest Randomly generated buffs like Red Drake? that adds real and GOOD strategy to the game.

: Has anyone thought of buying Lich Bane?
The problem with Lichbane, it's an AP-focused version of Trinity Force and Iceborn, and it isn't bad... but there are a lot more champions who have need of mixed stats (Trinity) and tankiness (Iceborn) than AP and an enhanced autoattack (Lichbane). I can name a couple who still build Lichbane sometimes, but the reason it's rarely built over its sibling items is because not many AP casters also autoattack, they tend to be ability-reliant. Those that sometimes make use of Lichbane: {{champion:105}} {{champion:10}} {{champion:61}}{{champion:28}} {{champion:131}} {{champion:4}} {{champion:38}} and maybe {{champion:115}} {{champion:96}} {{champion:268}} {{champion:245}} {{champion:81}} Not many other APs/Hybrids benefit enough from having an enhanced autoattack and AP. Out of those I listed, Twisted Fate builds Lichbane the most, it's basically core on him. Ezreal and Ekko tend to build Iceborn instead of Lichbane for the tankiness and because Ezreals Q places Iceborn on collision.

I'd be okay with this. # the champion reworks in the champion select. I'd do it just to play unlimited Ryze again for a bit, I mastered pre-re-rework Ryze (The one right before this rework, in his nerfed state) and wanted to know how good i'd be with that level of power in comparison to his nerfed state. The biggest problem is they can't account for every champion balance adjustment. It would take ages, and to be honest most people would just play release TF or Xin Zhao.

Are you kidding me m8. Compare Stats between Steraks and Hexdrinker, it works on AP and AD and is up 30 seconds earlier and gives +50% base AD. ARE YOU KIDDING ME M8. Most champs have 90 base attack damage. That's +40AD just for being focused every minute. and +40 AD is still more than Hexdrinker upgraded gives in damage if you don't count the APen

Price inflation doesn't exist. A company will only charge what people will pay, and that means they can never charge an obscene price for something basic like foodstuff.

There is literally nothing wrong with this. Saying a team just picking up randoms each game should have the same winrate as a seasoned 5-man team is like saying you WANT ranked integrity to be garbage. Riot is doing the right thing by balancing it over the seasoned team. > A group with voice comms will use their superior macro play and synchronicity to overcome these challenges and defeat the opponents with ease. > As Riot cannot and will never be able of knowing which scenario is true, there is no way for both to be balanced. > Riot cannot balance for this and there is no way for them to find this information. This is true, they have no way of balancing both. It's literally impossible. So what they're doing, is they're balancing a coordinated team above a non-coordinated team. This will bring back ranked integrity when completed because a 4-5 man will have the same difficulty winning a game as a solo. Plus, people will be a lot more accepting of playing against bigger pre-mades if they know the matchmaking system gave them what it believes to be good teammates. > Not to mention that teams of 5 without voice chat vs teams of 5 with voice chat is essentially pitting 5 randoms against a team without the MMR differences that make the near 50% winrate Riot has fabricated. > A group without voice comms will be matched against players with vastly greater individual skill and will subsequently be slaughtered trying to best players better than them on even footing. People should understand that playing as a team of 5's means you're playing as a TEAM. If you can't display the coordination and skill a team would display, you shouldn't be playing ranked as a 5-man. DQ gives us the ability to play as 5, but DQ is not meant to make ranked easier, it's meant to make ranked more social. The fact that this is happening means the system IS balanced. > http://www.azquotes.com/picture-quotes/quote-the-only-statistics-you-can-trust-are-those-you-falsified-yourself-winston-churchill-66-61-75.jpg While Winston surely did have some knowledge and experience, his cynical or downright paranoid view of politics were not something to look up to.

They built him with both roles in mind. His entire kit and character were made for both. That's not how Riot balances this game. They create a kit that isn't overbearing and they let the meta decide where the champion goes. They obviously have an idea of what the meta will do, but they never force a champ to go a specific role and if you think they do, you don't understand how they work as a company. It's like saying Ryze was reworked to be a top champion because due to the current meta he isn't a great mid but is a great top.

: I'm just so confused because I read somewhere on league that the next 3 champs after aurelion will not be a jungler so I don't get why people still think he's going to be a jungler like the way they though Rahm kench was the e river king so he a A jungler and it turn out to be a support.

The meta made Tahm into a support, not Riot. Tahm can go top and mid relatively well.

: Diamond games are literally unplayable right now
Diamond smurfs? What? What are they smurfing from? Challenger? That's like telling your bronze teammates while you play on your smurf. "Don't worry guys, my main is silver 4, I can carry!"
: >Seriously, I have issues saying 'th' and have since I was 6, if I got graded for saying Earf instead of Earth I would be just as pissed. This is now a common feature of a certain London accent. One of the EU LCS casters have this merger with myth-miff.

One of the EU LCS casters have this merger with myth-miff. Yup. I know about it, I think it's called cockney or something, anyway... I'm not British, i'm American, so it's pretty abnormal for someone over here to have a natural cockney accent.
: Less words? I'd be surprised if the number of words were significantly different. There'd be some things were American's have more (trash/garbage/rubbish -Trash isn't used often outside of NA) and some where other regions have distinctions (enquiry/inquiry). Do you mean less sounds? NA has around 10 fewer than non-NA regions on average.

American has a lot more words than British English, however i'd like to say this was about BRITISH English. Not Oceanian English, not African English. British English. The English spoken on the British Isles and in Canada exclusively. You'd basically use Creek anywhere you'd use ridge, for instance. That Creek over there seems a bit dangerous.

: Can we make Gromp buff actually worth it?
It is worth it... It's just not the best camp. You shouldn't expect every single camp in the jungle to give the same amount of gold or experience, some camps have to be better than others. Plus, you can give your gromp to your top or botlane if they're having issues farming their lane due to the enemy lead.
: It almost feels like Gromp is the worst camp
It's alright, not every camp has to be great, actually that's a good camp to give to your top so that they can farm a little safely if their enemy is ahead.

: That's absolutely true, but when you're being told in class by that teacher, loud enough to likely make everyone hear it, that "you get a reduced score in oral English due to having an American accent", that's pushing it quite far. I argued that it was because I watch a lot of movies, and that the majority of movies are in American and I pick it up from there, but that was no excuse and blatantly ignored. Frankly, that event has given me a block for speaking english at all ever since. She said I would've gotten a 5 (6 is the max), but only got 3+ due to this. I did sit down with British Top Gear and a dictionary at home every evening soon after, to learn actual British. Pity this was at the end of the year, and I never got to utilize it. I don't hate easily; hate have to be _earned_, but that teacher made it...

Sounds as stupid as being told you can't spell color as colour in an American school. It's the same language, different dialect. You shouldn't be grading people for having an accent-- that's discrimination. So long as you can identify where the accent came from and can prove it's not a mispronunciation, it should be allowed. Seriously, I have issues saying 'th' and have since I was 6, if I got graded for saying Earf instead of Earth I would be just as pissed. Not to mention it, as a whole, is as stupid and comparable as a North German School grading someone worse for speaking with a South German accent.

: >Idk what the regional offices do tbh. Probably just like translations? No, idea, but all I know is that a lot of news content is either never posted on EUNE or vastly delayed. http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/store/sales/icons-down-under ^ that one, for example - we never got that page on EU. At all. So had I known about it, I'd bought the Fizz icon. But Dorito doesn't want to even acknowledge that mistake, much less make amends for it. I posted a notification about that fact to a Rioter, but only got some generic, nonsensical reply back. And here I have another joke for you: Regarding translations, I have heard this argument (also made by someone from the EUNE news comment section) over the reason for content taking such a long time to get from NA to EUNE: it doesn't get to the [English] page because it have to be translated first. I mean, translated from what? American? I haven't heard the argument "American is not English [British]" - and that from an English-teacher no less - since high-school. xD ------ There are indeed valid arguments to move to NA (cannot post in the NA news section when from EUNE), as there seems to be both more Red activity here as well as less stupidity, but my ingame ping would then get FUBAR ("rekt", to use LoL terminology). :'( If the ingame ping on the NA server would be same as on the PBE server when playing from my location, I wouldn't get less than 200ms (tested on a 700Mbps connection). And thats kinda...ouch.

Proper British English has afew less words and spells a couple things differently than proper American English.
