: Why can someone ban a teammate's champion in champion select lobby?
"i never win lane against yasuo, and our last pick is hovering yasuo.. do i risk letting the enemies get yasuo, or so i just prevent that and trigger our last pick? i think i'll choose the triggering"
: An anecdote.
sometimes i pick a champion with the worst winrate in the game, build the lowest winrate build on op.gg, and kinda try never get banned for those, but that's a lot more effort than starting a macro that runs me down mid while i go do something else

"the only people who play league on a virtual machine are botters and scripters :) so our anti-cheat software doesn't let you play in a virtual environment :)) dw guys we fixed the bots :))) linux users can suck our dicks :)))) what do you mean league can run on used $100 laptops that pay themselves off within 2 weeks? TOXIC; BANNED"

: How do you gain your confidence back?
well first of all, riven is one of those champions that can and should change their build and runes depending on the enemy watch some Adrian Riven videos and streams also, /mute all at the start of the game, OR go into options -> interface -> scroll down to "chat" -> untick "Show [All] Chat (Matched Game" and "Show [Allied] Chat." chat serves no purpose that pings and paying attention do not. don't want to get flamed? don't subject yourself to the flame.
: trying to get out of silver
#looking at your op.gg... * narrow down your champ pool to 3 or 4. dodge autofills and off-role games * shoot for 7 cs per minute every game as a minimum * your KP (kill participation) is pathetically low. almost never over 40%. try to roam and rotate for objectives * buy a control ward EVERY SINGLE TIME you're coming out of base with at least 75g ##general tips not related to your op.gg... * watch, and fully absorb, [this entire playlist](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsDtT9_RGH8&list=PL1W5WUsCErCkyuEtJr3RV5SfYF-8JQC9O). wave control and trading patterns in particular are CRUCIAL. * [learn when to dodge queues](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzud5UPNZTM) In order to climb, you must, ***MUST*** be _actively_ thinking. THINK. Think about WHAT you're doing and WHY you're doing it. Every single time you decide to do something, ask yourself WHY you're doing it. Ask yourself WHAT will happen afterwards because of it. The more you practice this, the faster you will be able to do it. "WHY" alone can get you out of silver

: It's Easier To Win By Banning Out my Team
well yea op.gg your teammates and ban their bad champions try to manipulate them into playing champions they're good at dodge if 2 or more of your teammates are off-role or on losing streaks dodge if a single person is on a losing streak on the champion they picked etc. the only way for you to be the deciding factor in a game is for the rest of your team to have about a 50/50 chance of winning

: I love League of Legends because it has so many champs with different abilities, stats, item builds, summoner spells, and customization options. But it makes me sad that everyone only wants to use Flash and current meta strategies. I believe this is a community problem. People are so quick to judge and insult players if they try off-meta strategies. If the community was more forgiving, people would have more fun and be more likely to try off-meta strategies. Experimentation is also vital to discovering new capabilities in game.

wait what the fuck you posted this after going 1/7/10 (37% KP) on pyke with grasp your adc was 3/6 you did 6k damage in a 34 minute game and you got carried by a 17/10 rengar who did 37k damage in that game and a 2/3/9 Leona game with 30% KP carried by a 17/1 talon how fucking delusional do you have to be to unironically believe you had any positive impact whatsoever on those games

You can, however, see that LeaverBuster didn't give out bans for seasons 5 or 6.

i've gotten several instant 14day bans from inting ONE single-digit-level normal game i have a feeling people get away with shit like this because of defeatists choosing not to report. "i'm not going to report because nothing happens anyway"

It feels really random to me sometimes and I realize that a quick google search could probably tell me but it never seems like a big enough deal. I always end up erring on the side of caution and try to let the support have it because I get the minions; they should get the wards at least. I don't want to deny them gold because I'm a pill. ;-; If a support main could explain it, I would be grateful. I honestly had no clue that sweeping would give both of us the gold.

No amount of skill would win you a game where everyone on your team hard fed and your mid laner afks at 7minutes. dodging the right games can make your own individual skill be the only deciding factor. players like rat irl and scrubnoob have gotten diamond with 95-100% winrates by dodging it's also part of the reason why TF Blade acquires and maintains rank 1 so easily

: "PvE game modes cost too many resources"
For 21 months, ALMOST TWO FULL YEARS, "Rotating Game Mode" actually had meaning. Between early-mid 2016 and late 2017, we were getting an RGM every weel. Maybe ***THAT'S*** why I remember seasons 6 and 7 fondly. Not because they were in a good spot balance-wise, but because they were actually _fun_ https://leagueoflegends.fandom.com/wiki/Rotating_Game_Mode

Saezio (EUNE)
: Ignite should reveal pyke in his W (thus disabling it) I think yasuo should need 3 crit items for 100% not 2. And then buff him accordingly (he should also not get the decreased crit damage)

And then buff him accordingly (he should also not get the decreased crit damage) he should _definitely_ get decreased crit damage as long as his q can crit, which it should. i think he was in the best spot he ever was right before the crit rework. his winrate started at 42% in bronze and only went up with rank
: How would you guys Balance Yasuo and Pyke
as a pyke player and someone who has always been of the opinion that yasuo is not OP, i would... * fully revert the crit rework --> but keep current ER and IE, and remove shojin altogether * revert yasuo's passive compensation buff * reduce his w duration by 1 second * increase the cooldown on his rank 3 R by a bit --- * remove pyke's ability to give himself "your cut" * reduce the gold share of "your cut" by half (or more) * revert his AoE nerfs * make his passive require not taking damage for about 2 seconds (so he can actually be finished off by ignite) * increase his mana costs --> i can spend the entire laning phase spamming and missing q and still get my first back at around 25% mana
