Might be because you can't play ranked at all? (want better answers it helps if you actually post on a account where your question makes sense) Or you're in Platinum+. You won't get free wins in promos past Gold.

: Riot encourages players to give up a game. UNACCEPTABLE.
14.1 Awarded Game Victory In the event of a technical difficulty which leads League officials to declare a restart, the LCS may instead award a game victory to a team. If a game has been played for more than 20 minutes on the game clock (00:20:00), League officials, in their sole discretion, may determine that a team cannot avoid defeat to a degree of reasonable certainty. The following criteria may be used in the determination of reasonable certainty. 14.1.1 Gold Differential. The difference in gold between the teams is more than 33%. 14.1.2 Remaining Turret Differential. The difference in the number of remaining turrets between the teams is more than seven (7). 14.1.3 Remaining Inhibitor Differential. The difference in the number of standing inhibitors between the teams is more than two (2). You should also quote correctly what the officials ruled instead of twisting it to sound biased. They actually stated "League officials have ruled that CG did not have a reasonable chance to come back in this game" instead of the bs quote you typed up. So could CG comeback, sure, was it reasonable. No, not with all the factors presented. They weren't just down 10k gold. 4 dragons, 7 turrets, 1 inhib. That tells more than just 10k gold and it wasn't the gold lead that lead to the ruling anyway, it was a factor in Echo Fox's lead though. The officials also took about 25 minutes to award the victory to Echo Fox. They probably reviewed the game, the game state, tried all they could to recover the game, since they couldn't it was either restart or award the victory. There's no such thing as a tie in League of Legends. This also isn't solo queue where if a game actually crashes you're awarded loss prevention. Your comparisons are horrible. Riot isn't encouraging any player to give up or afk. How you can compare a crash to afk is amazing though.

: To be fair, looking at factors such as winrates, KDA, and winstreaks could be a step towards attempting to balance ranked out. >Code ain't that simple to write when you have so many people of varying skill, attitude, etc. Code gets relatively simple to write once you understand the syntax and use the language enough.
And I believe they already have systems in place that does that and are doing that. There's still the problem that is inherit with games that are so team based though. If you have two or even ONE weak link on your team it can (not all the time) make it feel like the game is unbalanced, especially with how snowbally the game is. Someone on your team may be a fine player but they get a bad game, a bad matchup, an enemy jungler that camps their lane. etc. So the real question is, is it really because of matchmaking or the state of the game? A lot of the time the questions and solutions to them are not as simple as they appear and if Riot were to act rashly they could try and 'fix' something that's not broken because the problem actually was in another facet of the game.
: then you shoudln't be in the business of making games.
My point is that any solution is going to have it's problems, it's very hard to get a perfect system with such a large and diverse audience to use it with. Can they improve it? Yeah, just people think it's the easiest thing in the world to do and it's not. There's the problem that is inherit with games that are so team based though.

How do you know the Kai'sa went away without any punishment?
: He was also toxic in game. Why should I have to tell the system if someone is toxic in post game or pre game also?
Not everything is automated. If someone is that toxic chances are it's not a one time thing. If it is a one time thing of course he's not going to be banned, at worse he'll be bumped up to a 14 day ban and then perma after another offense, but say he's toxic once a month. It'll add up and a ban will happen eventually.

: RE: GGMF's Price tier
GGMF is a legendary skin like DJ Sona or Elementalist Lux, but GGMF is going to be priced lower because Riot decided that GGMF brings to the table similiar things to Elementalist Lux and not something incredibly new. They recently did a video about skins and such that explains probably everything you want to know.

I tried her, she's not really my style. Playing with my buddies who really love her now he got a Pentakill on her.

: Fix the new honor system or remove it
Honor is going to take longer to get than last season because it was introduced with only months in the year left. Now you'll probably only start seeing honor 5 half way through the year. I've been able to get one check point so far into honor 3 playing a decent amount, but by the end of the year (probably much before) at this rate I'm still going to get to honor 5. If it was easy to get it wouldn't be much of an achievement. They should look at it and re-evaluate if the rewards match the effort and what they are going for, but I think it's doing just fine.

Likely to go back to spamming it like I was a little while back. > > His passive is pretty great if used properly. E someone into your W, get two shards immediately and get a fuck ton of healing. It lets you be deceptively tanky during almost any engage so long as you know how to land your stuff. The issue is having to stack your passive to use ulti and to get full effect out of your ulti. W is really slow and everyone voids it and missle speed on e is really slow. Also the fact you need to aa the snared target makes it that much more frustrating.
It's not hard to stack your passive by the time your ult comes up. Just by landing two full combos you get 4 stacks. His E sure is a bit slow of a missle speed but it's probably one of the best things to nab a back line carry while in a fight because of it's unique trait of grabbing from the back instead of a pull like Blitz. W isn't as useful in a 1v1, that's obvious, big teamfights it shines brighter, it can also block off exit paths, either they walk into it and eat damage and a slow or they wait untill it goes off.

jusho1 (NA)
: Swain is still trashed tier
positioning and don't build tear on him, RoA + a lost chapter item is enough mana as long as you're not spamming Q for no reason and you'll have more damage than going tear. Really you don't have much reason to use any abilities in lane until level four when you can combo all three of your abilities, because yes, you can combo your W with your E to get a little bit more damage and a slow to be able to chase. Personally I like going Domination + Resolve. Electrocute as my keystone, and you get ravenous hunter and revitalize which will increase your healing, the new items provide Swain with more CDR than his usual build path before which has felt nice. > just disable this champ until you decide what the hell you're going to do with him That wouldn't be fair for those of us that know how to play him effectivly. That would be like me saying to disable Twisted Fate. I play plenty of Mid but for some reason I just can't make TF work for me, just not my playstyle and I never seem to deal as much damage as others on him, so I don't play him and play the many other champs that I enjoy playing and do well on.
: Got chat banned
Doesn't matter that they all reported you. 9 reports or in this case 4 is the same as 1 report. Honestly, yes, it's probably working as intended.
: What should i have done in this situation?
You move on and grind more games to climb. Games like this happen where even though you rocked it you just couldn't win because you're team failed. Report when needed and just move on. My suggestion, focus on you. Are you winning your lane? Are you doing what you can? Are you learning from your mistakes and improving? If so, you should be happy with your performance and continue onward, keep playing well and improving and you will climb. Win 60% of your games and you will climb.
: NICE JOB RIOT!
Did you know that if a person gets reported by 9 people it's no different than if they got reported by 1 person? Calling for reports just makes you look whiny and generally it's the actually toxic person that calls for reports in my experience. tl;dr mute, report and move on, calling for reports from others does nothing.

Wow, no money needed. Yes ofcorse Riot would say that. Saying and doing somthing is completly different. Yes that is called grinding (all game have it) but most people will just opt to just pay and get 'new champ' when it comes out
I didn't know all games had grinding. Super Mario World was really a grind fest wasn't it, but that's besides the point. Yes Riot wants money, they are a company, but saying that the nerfs to Zoe is an effort to try and get people to buy the new champion is like saying nerfing Heimerdinger is an effort to try and get people to buy the new champion. It just doesn't make sense because nerfs and buffs happen regardless of champion releases. For example, if the new champion was going to be revealed in three weeks instead of today I guarantee that Zoe would still be nerfed this coming patch. It's just correlation and coincidence. The new champ is also coming out a patch after these nerfs hit, not the same patch. People are going to opt into just paying the new champ because they want to, not because Zoe was nerfed.

> That sounds great, appreciate the help. Another question if you don't mind - is it only for level 7? Meaning I'd have to get Mastery 6 the regular way? You can get level 6 with a shard and level 7 with a shard. They just need two separate shards.

Fufewaxe (EUNE)
: Zoe's interations
zoe's passive makes her auto instant and not a projectile. Yasuo's windwall only blocks projectiles. Or rather, any ability with a travel time. Lux R, xerath Q, Brand W are examples of abilities with no travel time or "lasers" and AoE that don't get blocked. Anivia's wall and Taliyah's ult are player made terrain, not map terrain, those are two seperate things. Ornn can break player made terrain, but not map terrain with his E. I'm not saying they should or should not interact the way they should, but this is a clarification of why they are what they are currently
: If you lose your series you are expected to play at least 7 games (one hour each) just to get right back to the same spot. That is unspeakably absurd.
I would suggest playing normals and not caring about ranked. I'm the sort of person that enjoys seeing that rank go up even if it can be tedious at times, but it's not for everyone. The real problem is the system put Professor Akali in B1 to start with. If they had started at S1 they would be up to Plat 5. The max amount of LP I've ever earned myself is 25 per win. so that's at least 6 games per rank, with 1 additional game to go up from bronze to silver, silver to gold. So with no losses going through all of Silver should take about 31 games at 25 LP per win. Given that Professor Akali probably didn't get 25 LP every win and the 7 games for B1 to S5. 43 games is about as fast as you can go from B1 to G5. This would be seen really in any ranking system I would say, if you start low you kind of have to climb up, it's up to the system though to try and place you correctly, the climbing is the by product of where you are placed, because there's a limit to how fast you can climb regardless of your skill level. So again, the real problem is where the system placed Professor Akali not the climbing process up to Gold 5. In my opinion, and this isn't to say that the rest of the ranking process other than placement is the best either.

: Not only is this swain rework an abomination, its a rip off another character.
> I wouldn't even say rework, its a completely new champion in lore and gameplay. The point of a rework this size is essentially take the same character and create it from the ground up as if it was created today. If that makes sense to you.
: Not only is this swain rework an abomination, its a rip off another character.
It would be cool if ashe's e could deal damage and slow targets. I had no idea what Dawngate was, who Fenmore was before this post. the similarities are, rips out souls (even then the function of the souls are different), e goes out and returns, ult does aoe around them. Other than that they seem quite different. Swain's passive deals with souls like Fenmore's W, but it gives swain health, not a shield. Don't know how Swain's Q is similar to anything Fenmore does. Swain's w is an aoe damage and slow with a long range, quite useful and if you learn how to use it in swain's combo, even more useful, saying that this ability is useless is just odd. Again, another ability that I don't see any similarities to anything Fenmore does. Swain's e is similar to Fenmore's e. Probably got inspiration from it maybe, but they serve different function all together. Swain roots and Fenmore gets health back if he catches the wolf. The ults are similar, but Swain's new ult is similar to his old one anyway. If anything Fenmore took inspiration from Swain's old ult as Swain came out years before Fenmore. Verdict: Some inspiration may or may not have been taken, but they seem to play vastly different and theme of the characters seem vastly different Although similarities are there it's not anywhere close enough to be called a rip off.
: I intentionally throw games when i dont recieve a gank in top lane... idgaf on my smurf account!
: Yeah but my point is do you see amumu for example as much as jax or yi ?
No, but how is that a bad thing? You will never see all the champions played the same amount.
: Oh soooo you are ok with having only like 30 played champs from more than 150?
It's no where near that bad, and yes I'm okay with having 80 or so champs out of 134 champs played. I love playing Aurelion Sol, I love playing Taliyah. Yorick can be a pushing and dueling monster, fought and played Yorick within the last week. I've been destroyed by many a Morde. Ryze is Ryze, he's always around now and again. I still take Amumu into the jungle with success, he's not played that much, but that doesn't mean he's weak. I have no idea why Rammus isn't played more, but it happens. I've seen a couple Nocturne lately and he's still good. A big part of why this happens isn't even Riot's fault. People follow trends. Champion trends come and go and it's dictated by the players. Gragas jungle hasn't shown up in a little bit, he wasn't nerfed, people just stopped playing him but I guarantee he's still strong. Cho has seen less play but he's still strong. Again, it's not necessarily that champs are weak, some of them can use some love sure, but buffing them for the sole purpose of having them see more play is terrible.
: Champions that are rarely played!
There's nothing wrong with having a few champs that aren't played that much. They aren't necessarily weak, and buffing them just to simply make them see more play would be terrible.

Don't know why you expected anything else. Get four friends, play blind pick.

You might be hovering a TOTALLY off-meta pick that someone doesn't trust you to pull off. Sometimes, people hover random stuff just for fun. EDIT: Downvoting this post doesn't change what it says. These are all actual reasons that people would want to ban a hover. OH, and I came up with a new one. Reworks (swain)/new champs in ranked.
If this isn't in a ranked game, let people have fun with their video game.
