To prevent tilters from being toxic in chat. Everything you need to say can be communicated through pings.

I don't think he needs a rework. His kit is fine, but just some number adjustments. Champs that need rework should be old champ with outdated kits like {{champion:9}} {{champion:20}} {{champion:23}}

Did you get moderated as a moderator? To fix your ping spikes, try checking your connection to router with by opening command prompt then type_ -ipconfig_. Get your router's IP then type _ping (insert ip here) -t_ If there's spike, there something wrong with your network card or router. Also, you can disable searching for wifi signal to reduce the interference. I forgot the command for that one

Very rarely does anyone want to rush Lord Dominik's or Thornmail as first item. Rammus excluded. you don't need to finish the item. You just need the bleed effect. It's similar to Maw. You get it for the shield, get other items and finish it last.
: So unless im 3 levels ahead of my current elo its a coin toss? Meh thats enough to make me uninterested. I like games, sports that are more rewarding if you do well. I know there is a lot to learn and i could be a waay better player.. it just seems the rewards for doing well, and the punishment for losing seem a little off balance. And thats enough to make me not enjoy the experiance. Anyways thanks for the help

High Diamond is better not because the players are better, but you consistently meet the same players over and over again. Meanwhile in low elo, every new game is RNG teams and once you softcap your mmr the system will put you in favor of losing when you rise above your softcap and in favor of winning when you go below your softcap. The only way to get out is if you can single handedly carry games OR get lucky enough for a massive win streak to change your soft cap.

: Remove smite from the game since it's an autoloss if you forget to take it.
We need smite to gate laners from taking jungle EXP. If you remember the bullshit meta where laners were farming jungle camps to stay ahead. At least SMITE forces them to lose a summoner spell. What should be done is have smite auto changed in the F key if a player is put in jungle.

For example I just won a game 13/0/5 , or something like that .It felt very, very easy and at this point any person would think " wow silver 5 is very easy, ranking up shouldn't be too hard." But i definitley have had some games that feel unwinnable. The last 10 games or so to be honest were very stressful and players argued and afk'd. Im also the type of person who stops having fun at this point and ill kinda zone out and just sit top and farm. If i lose games in a row for whatever reason ( getting out played, afks, whatever) do i get matched with people that also currently lost? It kind of feels that way. Because when im winning games the champ select conversations are very positive. People communicate and have a game plan. When im on a losing streak the champ select is terrible. It will immediatly be negative and it carries all game. This makes winning harder for me. Im not sure if i need to take a break, or try not to be so upset about losses or trolls. Its just i love the game at its core, but i donno something about it feels strange like im missing something. Maybe if i understood the matchmaking more i would less stressed out. Any help is much appreciated " If i lose games in a row for whatever reason ( getting out played, afks, whatever) do i get matched with people that also currently lost? " No, you do not get matched with "loss designated" players or players who are on loss streaks or anything like that. " Maybe if i understood the matchmaking more i would less stressed out. Any help is much appreciated" It's pretty simple foundationally. You get matched into games with players who win against them same sets of people and lose against the same people. If you win or lose consistently that rating changes and you are matched accordingly.

If you win or lose consistently that rating changes and you are matched accordingly. Disagree. I have 70 games on a new rank account and it's gold. I also have hundreds of games on my main silver account. I am certain that I'm unable to climb out of silver if I play on my silver account simply because of match making. Also, by your logic, my gold account should have dropped to low silver as well because match making doesn't create biased games.

If you were being polite about it, then mods are murder. If you were being overly aggressive then its your fault. The rules on this site is worded in such way that all disagreement can be moderated at a mod's whim.
: ranked Silver 5 secret to winning/understanding match making, help please!!
Don't play if you're tilted. Don't queue a game if you know you won't be emotionally stable that game. Silvers is a hit or miss. You either find a hidden gem or the biggest special needs person every game. Way too much RNG. You can't carry yourself out of silver. You can only hope to get lucky and get a win streak large enough to place you into gold.

I strongly disagree. There's three types of honor; chill, shot call, and great team mate. Just because there's one fucker ruining the game by flaming and inting, doesn't mean I shouldn't honor the person getting flamed if they're chill about it and still trying their best to win.

1. Poppy if the assassin has a dash. 2. AoE nukers like Annie. 3. True sight champion like Lee sin. 4. AoE instant CC like Amumu. Assassin are only strong when teamwork is weak. To be fair, Talon is the only assassin who is broken strong with true stealth. Highly slippery assassin are the real problem, like Zed, Fizz, TALON, Ekko.

: An idea for Riot, to decrease the huge grind that ranked comes with.
"The major rule of thumb is though, no one team may have more than 1 player who's currently doing above my tier. Preferably, only one between both teams. Proving you're better than the other silver player on the team means nothing." But the other silver players is playing above their tier so that means something. It doesn't make sense to for you to be a special one playing above your tier, then disregard other people playing above their tier. Not to mention, this let's people get boosted way faster by duoing with a smurf, win three-five games, then play above their tier for huge mmr gains.
: Am i supposed to just get boosted? That seems to be like the only option if you *want* to climb
Depends on whether you belong in your elo or not. I was low silver. I didnt believe I belong in low silver. After hundreds of games I gave up and did placement on my alt. Got gold. 63 games later and I'm still gold, not silver, not bronze but gold. Can't wait until I'm able to unlock my main once I farm enough BE, I should be able to hit upper middle gold by then. If you think you don't belong in your elo, then roll a new account and start fresh. You can't carry games even if you're 1 tier above where you belong. You need to be at least 2 tiers above before you can consistently carry.

From what I know, shyvanna is a strong duelist even without her passive, like how Kog is a strong anti-tank ADC without his passive. If we're giving shyvanna a new passive, Kog needs one too.

: Tenacity has becomen such an easy to aquire stat already an people have becomen so good at using qss well that ordinary cc has lost a lot of its value. Knockups/Displacement are harder to hit in general, because most require you to be in melee range or have a predicatble long cast animation. If you can't lockdown the enemy carry even after you hit a knockup on them it's going to be terrible. I don't like the fact that everywhone has knockups/displacement, but if we add a direct mechanic to counter it, cc will become terribly weak, needing a direct buff. Which in turn just **sets off a series of powercreeping of cc and counter cc**. This will shift the meta into two very binary states onwards. Either full cc will become meta, because the direct buff to cc (which is necessary after intoducing a anti-displacement thing) is so strong that it's op. Everyone just takes cc champions and every cc suddenly last 3-5 seconds or something. Or the other version will be that all cc is useless because there is too much counter to it. Resulting in those champions that are especially vulnerable to cc excel. And nobody want to face a yi that can't be stopped with a knockup right?

Most people want counterplay to knockups. Displacement is more than that which includes knock aside, knockback, and pulls. You will see post complaining about knock ups, but how many post complaining about knock backs?
: He's stating that bruisers in the current meta do assassin levels of damage after the purchase of Trinity Force. Playing as a Mage / Marksman, Irelia and Zed both burst you and both feel like assassins. We're in a meta where everyone effectively does {{champion:99}} levels of burst. There really aren't any DPS champions in the current meta, you're lucky if you survive for longer than 3 seconds against anybody as a squishy champion.

There really aren't any DPS champions in the current meta, you're lucky if you survive for longer than 3 seconds against anybody as a squishy champion. I concur. Although as someone who plays Singed a lot, I think he's a decent pick for someone who doesn't deal burst damage.

Bruisers are something like Nasus, Garen, Rumble, Jax. And even Jax is more of a skirmisher.
: There needs to be a preseason for summoner spells
Barrier is superior to heal in a 1v1 situation. Barrier can negate the damage before you lose health, while heal is only effective after you lose health. Assuming an assassin jumps on you, you want to be able to have a shield up before he does his burst combo than to wait for him to combo and hope you live before you hit the heal button.
: Aatrox's rework reiterates something about immobility
: Bruisers and mages in bot lane is not a sign of diversity - its a sign of an unhealthy burst meta
Actually, bruisers aren't burst. They're more sustained damage. Assassins and mages are burst.

If there was some actual research into this, I'd bet that (even with similar mmr) the team with the most better players will win on average. Way more than they would lose. I'd bet money. WIth the law of average, the team with worse players won't have the same mmr as the team with better players. The team with blatantly worse players would have their MMR drop if they played together over and over again. Matchmaking is a clusterfuck, but bringing up a player's win rate as a testament to their skills is not a good argument. That was my entire point since my first post.

Are you trolling or what? lol He also did the worst that game. Your team average win rate was (50 + 45.7 + 43.3 + 44.9 + 51.6)/5 = 47.1% The enemy team average win rate was (51.5 + 50 + 38.2 + 50.9 + 52.7)/5 = 48.66% If you scale between both teams, your team would have a 49.2% chance of winning while theirs has a 50.8%. In 100 games playing against them, your team would win 49 times. Stop complaining about unfair match making when the stats pretty much gave you a 50% chance of winning.

If we're doing it by win rate, their Irelia is better than your aatrox, their Kayn is better than your Kindred, your TF is better than their akali, their Draven is better than your MF, and their fidds is better than your thresh. The only person with the right to complain about getting bad teammates is TF.
