: The CD reset on killing a minion did feel really good to play with I agree, so I tried to keep in on the ability is long as I could. However, different iterations on the new W with this either had really unintuitive interactions or gave him a lot of strong wave-clearing power with no real downtime for his opponents to play around. So we killed it, but want to make sure his laning phase still holds up without it (putting power into his scrapping vs his passive farming ability).
Fizz in no way, shape or form, has a strong wave clear without using his E. Which makes him vulnerable if someone is waiting in a bush. On top of that, it takes out a huge portion of mana to use. Someone like Ekko can wave clear without being vulnerable, but fizz is extremely vulnerable when he uses his E for wave-clear.

Great read. I was able to imagine the scenes in my head, get a feel for the characters personality, visualize the scenery, and loved the references to their actual abilities. Ezreal really feels like a hard headed kid who truly seeks to do whatever you told him not too, and Ryze sounds like he would actually say these lines according to his personality from his lore. A couple things that went through my head when I was reading: * Ryze and Ezreal sound the same age * A Brackern sounds like a Giant Bull, rather than a scorpion * I get confused on whose saying what after they teleport out. * Other than that, nice story!

: True. Don't worry to much about your elo. When I was in high school, I was so full of pride. I was so douchy because I was 6'4 and athletic. But the moment we lost a game vs our trash rivals, I got super down and missed school the next day. I learned to humble myself and understood that I'm not better than any other human being because I'm athletic. Same can be said to high elo players. I'm sure some high elo players (especially I hear about in diamond elo) that play around with a stick up their ass, thinking their teammates are preventing them to be the next faker. They let their pride get in the way. At the end of the day, I find this game to be stimulating and fun. I play the game, especially ranked, because I love competing. After playing for polo for 7 years(I joined the club team here in school), I never get tired of the game. Even today in both sports, there are so many little things I learn constantly. League, similar to sports, is really rare to make money off of. The top players in the world, the 1% of the 1% get to be the in the limelight. But i'll tell you what, those guys don't enjoy the game as much as us. imaqtpie for example, isn't in lcs anymore because it burns him out. Streaming is his job. League of legends is a job to those type of guys. The LCS players have to win to keep their living. Think bout how stressful that has to be. Guys like doublelift, were forced to use league as a means to survive. Check out his story if haven't already. League isn't our job, its a hobby. And, that's what makes it fun. At the end of the day, that's what its about, fun. Don't get too down man, if you prefer the casual gaming route, you're not alone. I love getting a group of 5, hopping on some chat service, and going on normals to mess around. I myself, like to stay around people my level, no matter what sport/game, and compete. Understand that league intently puts you in lower elo at the start of each season. Its a way to keep you in the game I feel. I should probly rephrase what I said to, "You'll end the season in the elo you deserve." hope this helps man.
sidenote: If you think about it, everything is meaningless. Why work so hard to become rich? So you can have a nice house? Hot wife? Snobby rich friends? that's all futile. As a college student, I worry about my finances. But i think to myself, If i was financially stable, what would I do with my time? Even if I was rich and skilled as someone like Double-lift, or Tom Brady, chasing trophy's doesn't give true life. Many times when both were asked what they were going to do after they won their championships they respond i don't know? Chase after another one? It can pass the time, but can feel futile in the end. Since we can't really take those achievement to the grave. Personally, the most important thing in our lives should be God. I find the Christian God to be true. I follow the Christian faith. Jesus and all that jazz. Not trying to bible thump or anything but if there is a deeper rooted issue here, maybe turning to God can fill that.

: Why so long? Just so you and others know.... those percentages change basically weekly. Like... right now gold 5 might be top 25%. But by end of the season it usually close to top 40%. Same with plat 5 usually around top 10 % but I think right now it's around 6-7 percent. Mainly because how riot resets ranks and the year worth of climbing. So being silver 3 today is not the same as say silver 3 3-4 months from now. Same with other ranks. At least you figured this out early so I am sure you will climb far if you want. just realize... its like this every season. I for one am sick of the grind. And one day you will see what I am saying. Say you hit your goal rank... your pumped now you playing some competitive games and testing your skills. Then next day rank resets and you drop back to around where you started this season. Now you know your skill is around X level... but your over a tier lower than X rank. Now you can suck it up and just climb back, like most people do. But then the next season the same thing happens. And the next, and the next. One day you realize "hey... I don't really give a damn about climbing I just want to play games with people my rank". Well playing your placements fucks you because you drop in rank. So you either play ranked and drop and start the grind over. Or you play normal and are miserable because norms suck. So then you have to quit playing. Then one day maybe you play again and this kid you used to play with his the same rank you used to be. But turns out... they not really that great at the game...they just waited until a couple months left of season and got placed there. Even with a not very impressive placement record. You think "well wtf.. to get there I would have had to play hundreds of ranked games. But they just got placed there because they waited for placements and got lucky? WOW this ranked system makes so much sense!". Basically. Cool you figuring out how to climb. Just don't waste too much of your life worrying about your rank. Since unless you going pro its all meaningless and no matter your rank you can get stomped or stomp anyone any game if you play the game right and have the better teammates.

Only every Monday and Thursday.{{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
: Good points. While you have one dissenting opinion already with some decent points, I take your overall message at its face value. You can only control yourself. I made it from silver 4 to plat 2 already this season (I finished gold 5 last season, I think), and I can tell you you're absolutely right. Both teams get trolls, and you can only control your own play. I got focused, and I climbed. Good luck to you on the path to mastery! Sidenote: sorry about your water polo experience. That's a bummer.
That is the theme I was trying to get at. Focus on yourself, and your skill, and you will climb. You cant control the other players. thanks boss.

: I used to tell people get good (even though I am bad) when they complained about having low mmr. Until last season.... Holy shit man... like once your mmr is tanked ranking up is rough. I ranked 3 accounts to gold last season. The last one I ranked had higher than average mmr. Then I strictly started using it only to play with friends in dynamic queue that were a lower rank than me. I also switched up champs and roles a lot. I went from having higher than average mmr to tanking my mmr. It got so bad, after season 6 ended I deranked out of gold. I knew it could happen, just never thought someone who deserved a certain rank could get demoted if they were trying. Well... when my mmr got that low I started trying. I tried hard. I knew I was a gold player.... hell I had 2 other accounts in mid gold. But for the life of me I couldnt rank that account back up. Think it ended in silver 2 at end of preseason. Now.... its hard to sympathize with you since your in bronze 5. But I do. I don't even want to be elitist because compared to high elo players I am garbage. So what I will say is this. BRONZE IS WEIIIIRDDDDDDD. Like... you can't really play the game correctly in bronze, especially in bronze 3-5. There is no point in playing the game even close to correctly. You basically every game have to write off your teammates and instead 100% just go with "its me vs the world". Basically focus on farming your ass off and only helping teammates if it means you getting kills. I don't want to promote this style because its not really how to play the game but.... in bronze specially where you are it's the best and fastest way to climb. Plus... no one knows what's going on anyways so you just have to figure out how to win and make yourself #1 priority. When I have an account in bronze I forget this sometimes, then once I remember I just focus on farming cs and kills. I just push lanes as far as I can... hell sometimes you can push to inhibs before enemy notices. Instead of grouping I just split push and use my teammates as roaming wards. If I see 5 enemies mid, I know I can push top or bot. Usually a fight breaks out and your team will die so you just have to figure out how many enemies are left and see if you need to back to save base or keep pushing to try and take towers and inhibs. See who still left on enemy team and if you can 1v1 or 1v2 them or not. Basically... play champs you know you can carry with and just focus on farming as much as possible. CSing in bronze is HUGE becuase other players don't do it. Also,, farming kills can work just don't go in 1v5 and die. Get the kills you can and then get out and push.
"You basically every game have to write off your teammates and instead 100% just go with "its me vs the world". Basically focus on farming your ass off and only helping teammates if it means you getting kills. I don't want to promote this style because its not really how to play the game but.... in bronze specially where you are it's the best and fastest way to climb." I agree with this. I had a similar mentality. Basically saw it as a 1v9. It's like playing middle school basketball, the person with the best player wins. Everyone else on the team barely understands the game. They can dribble, pass, and shoot. But they don't understand the meta of the game; the types of defense you can run, or the plays you can run to get open. Bronze 3-5 is taking as much resources as you can and 1v9'ing the team. Get fed, use your adv to other lanes, and focus objectives over kills.

: I generally don't talk unless necessary as I believe pinging is enough in MOST cases (including directional, pathing pings to better illustrate my intents if it is on a long-range distance). What I do find upsetting is when things when our ADC dives turret at 1/4 health with no minion waves and a Cait/Blitz combo right there. Or someone else being baited into face-checking bushes 20 times in a row only to be 3 or 4v1'd, asking them to please stop doing that and they continue to do so. Or the times where we secure a kill or three and everyone's at full health with two minion waves crashing into an enemy turret, yet EVERYONE but me goes back to base to buy a single 300g component item when we could have knocked it down and taken a free dragon. I am a team player. I believe EVERYONE should be looking out for the interests of the team and focus on minimizing losses and leveraging the strengths (if any, many games have none) someone may be carrying with, if applicable. I am not being put with people who are likeminded. This game, at a lower elo, REWARDS blatant greed and showboating. When these things happen almost every game, I get noticeably impatient with people lacking any kind of logic in their cerebral cortex, I become angry, I become sloppy because it takes about 30-40 minutes for me to lose my temper in chat because if I DARE to speak up, I'm told to 'stfu, ur 0/6/2' (dying as a support so carries didn't die, blocking skillshots, they drag fights on so any assistance I provided is considered expired by the time they secure a kill or, even worse, they start a fight before I can even reach them as I had to back for health, sightstone renewal, etc, and other reasonable situations that would EXPLAIN such a disproportionate KDA). It's an ego trip for most people I am put together in the match with, be it friend or foe. I make my fair share of mistakes and I own up to them. I take the situation into account and try to avoid repeating myself. I am generally met with the implied notion that I have any kind of influence over other people. I do not. I don't try to control people. I try to herd and safeguard them but until the day I can remotely take control of my teammates' characters and even perhaps their actual brains, I cannot be asked to do any more than what I can. I can be the most pathetic excuse of a bootlicker and it does not change that the people I'm put with DO. NOT. CARE. if they feel up to performing to the idealistic standards of the game. I can resist for only so long before I lose myself and am brought down to their level and am beaten to their having more experience at perceiving things their way. I'm only human.
Maybe its time you que mid and unlock your one trick pony potential. I see you play every champion in the game. Try to lower your champion roster to a couple characters a position. I did this with fizz, although I wouldn't say I one trick him, most of my games are with him. I wouldn't try to support low-elo adc's. I'd stay away from that, unless you were autofilled. In which case, take some sort of carry mage support. Low elo players don't act fast enough when you bust your CC on the enemies. They probly don't even notice you CC'ing a champion. I took moakai support for a day, it was effective.

: I agree with everything except.... > League system does a good job of placing us where our skills are, so don't blame the system and understand its going to take time to reach your goal. I have a friend that is around my skill level-in some roles outright better, others I'm ahead of him. Currently I'm Gold 5 (I don't really do a lot of ranked so it's a slow climb). My MMR seems to be mid-high gold, based on the players I go with in ranked usually being gold 3-plat 4, and in most cases I hold my own in these games (though I've definitely had bad games too). He was previously Gold 3 playing mid lane, and plat 5 while playing support a couple seasons back. he was placed Bronze 3 this season. He smokes just about every single game-but can't say the same for his team. He's now Silver 1. And you think it places us where we belong? Unlike real life, where your potential as an athlete can be scouted out by the right person and go from a nobody to a pro in a short time frame, League doesn't really allow for this-unless it initially thought you were really good. it's going to be a slow climb to your appropriate skill level-instead of putting you near where you actually should be, many get placed well under it. There's other elements not present in sports, like AFK's, int feeders, etc. On your water polo team, I imagine you can rely on everybody, or just about everybody, to do their absolute best. You'll have a team that is willing to work together and wants to win, that doesn't give up. League just doesn't have this.
I think your point is valid. Its even worse the higher elo you go. If you are a challenger/master player, the highest placement I've seen is plat 5. These are people like imaqtpie, or anniebot that get placed this high. To them, they get lowered 3-4 divisions. Someone like me, the average player moves down a division or two. Riot probly intently does this, knowing you for example should be placed in mid tier gold. By them Lowering your division on purpose in the beginning of the year, is probly them trying to get you play the game more. Maybe I should rephrase my statement too, "You'll end the season in the elo you deserve." As for the athlete part, you are right about the scout thing. No way some rito employee will hop on league in some low elo, see someone hard carry a game, and boost them up a division. The Best they do is move you up two divisions if your MMR is super high for your elo. And actually in highschool varsity sports, when its game-time, yeah everyone's doing their best. But in the everyday practice, its frustrating to see people not show up to practice, or not try during practice. It is seen as a waste of time and you letting the team down.
