Why should people who play better carry the people who choose to not really play? It feels like crap putting your all in a match and everyone else does not really care. There is nothing really in the game that incentives a player to help each other. There are a lot of things that incentives to show who the best on your team is and fight each other for kills, but there is nothing that makes players want to help each other to win. The game mostly influences you to be cocky, and mess around. I never found something in the game that influenced me to want to care about random players. So if most of the game is about who died less, and got most kills then I don't see people caring all that much. Points and rank up? well if most players treat each other like crap because that's what the game influences then how do you expect them to care about the points, and rank up? Here. Maybe this will help. Some random guy try's beating the crap out of you for no reason, and you beat the crap out of him, and he then asked for you to take him to the hospital. Seeing what happened I would think most people would not be in the giving mood to be nice to the guy that tried to beat you. Most would just start walking away. In the game the feeling is similar. If players treat others like crap. Its not helping to motivate the players to want to care about helping carrying others or help the person carrying.
...I feel like you entirely missed the point of my post. I'm not saying 'sit back and let other people carry you every game'. I'm not saying 'don't care about the game and don't give it your all' In fact I'm saying quite the opposite. What I am saying is that sometimes giving it your all and doing what is best to win the game is simply not dying to your laner or ganks and making sure that you don't give the enemy team any leeway for an advantage when your team already has one. What I am saying is that it's just as important to recognize when someone else has the potential to carry a game and play around them as much as it is important to have the skills to carry a game yourself. The game isn't about who dies less and gets the most kills. The game is about blowing up the enemy nexus before they can destroy yours, and if you think any differently you probably shouldn't be playing ranked.

Off-meta picks have a tendency to pre-tilt teammates who think it's going to be a catastrophic failure, and if they perform poorly they have a tendency to blame anyone but themselves. It's unfortunate. Off meta is pretty much what I smurf on. Annoys the crap out of me because every game has 1-2 people who are willing to sabotage every game just to prove "off meta doesn't work." They will literally int feed game away even if I'm hyper carrying, and then tell other team to report me 'cause morg jung' News Flash: Morgana even has a jungle starter page! In Season 5-8, Riot was actually pushing her to do things other than support! (who would have thunk). The entire W change was originally designed to improve her jungle! (Who would have thunk!). And you know what? She counters: Teemo Shrooms Kha Zix (One of the highest delta AND base win rate junglers) Rengar (Also one of the highest delta junglers) Xin Zhao etc etc. ------------------ I was just pointing out that in almost all games but vs a Blue Kayn, Nami can carry hard. I know she's a "Support," but she's a support who dramatically controls the game, be it by amping an adc with E to prevent runners, Heals/Poke, or CC. https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/wkspJ6Lm-season-9-in-a-nutshell This is what Nami does with a bad team. And this is me with a bad stiff right hand from work. _**You only need carried (on any champ) if you yourself are pushed out of carrying by some oppressive counter that eliminates your ability to play your role.**_ Ie......... Garen vs Vayne or Neeko; Garen's going to need carried.
I am well aware that Nami can carry pretty hard, ahah, there are several supports that can. :p The role is heavily undervalued by a lot of players. There's a reason Nami is my go-to pick for climbing. But what I more meant was, if-- -The rest of your team is already ahead -You are being camped by the enemy jungler -you have a bad matchup **You don't need to do anything crazy risky to try and get ahead, you pretty much just need to not die and cooperate to win.** I'm not saying 'never do anything, sit back and let your teammates do everything every game', the intention of my original post was that **sometimes** your teammates WILL get an advantage that will likely win you the game, and by trying to be the carry at this point you may end up just throwing whatever lead they had.
: Had a Camille recently that could learn something from this post. She was against a Teemo I believe, and was losing lane from the start. Constantly bitching about how jungle wouldn't gank. After she lost the first turret, she decided to open top and just roam around the map, taking kills and CS so that she could "get fed and carry". Funny how Teemo actually went AFK not long after she started doing this. She could've gone back top and probably got pretty far while the other lanes did their things, because we were all doing pretty well. But nope! Gotta be a bitch about it. If Teemo hadn't AFKed, I'm not sure we would have won, what with Camille being an entitled bitch and all.
Y i k e s. Sorry my guy, I feel for you. She probably could've just played safe-- Camille's late game is still pretty good, and if the rest of the map was winning why give up so easily? Did this one time on my main account when I got filled mid. I'm a support main who secondarily plays ADC, at the time this happened I think I was still Platinum 1, and I was playing with people around high Plat and Diamond. I AM NOT a diamond mid laner, lol. So I picked Orianna blind and ended up against a Yasuo. Pretty much just played as safe as possible, took whatever farm I could without dying (that part is important, better to be alive to get what CS you can than to die and get none, I only ended up down around 20-30 after lane I think). Waited to teamfight, got some good ults off and let the ADC and jungler do their job. All I had to do was not feed Yasuo. EZ win.
: One of the best things you can learn in this game is how to play from behind.
Hard agree, I admittedly need to work on this a bit myself.

Question: How does a Nami get carried? About the only matchup where a Nami can possibly get carried is a game with Blue Kayn. And honestly: I think the problem is OTHER people don't want to carry OR be carried. They choose to rage from champ select that someone chose something like Morgana Jungle or Zyra jungle. That Morgana or Zyra might get all drakes, gank so prolifically they go 18/2/20, but it's still their fault that bot fed 0/12, and ended the game 3/28.
Are you asking about Nami in particular because of this account's username? (I forgot I was logged into it to complete the watch missions when I posted this, ahah, you've probably seen my main account floating around the boards though, I recognize your username from other threads) I'm not sure what you mean by: >"bout the only matchup where a Nami can possibly get carried is a game with Blue Kayn." Literally any champion in any role can get carried. Just have to play safely and be prepared to assist in fights and back up whoever the main carry is. As for the little add-on, yeah. Off-meta picks have a tendency to pre-tilt teammates who think it's going to be a catastrophic failure, and if they perform poorly they have a tendency to blame anyone but themselves. It's unfortunate.

: Support Main Retirement
>who play the lesser roles like Support. Support is straight up one of the MOST important roles in the game my dude. Supports often decide the outcome of a lane, especially at higher levels of play. People underestimate how important it is because it's not as flashy or mechanically intensive as other roles but trust me it is definitely not a "lesser role". Sorry you feel that way. Godspeed my dude.

Maybe theres an issue with the missions right now... I just made a post about not getting any mission progress for a co-op vs. AI game I played (bot games have always worked for missions that specify 'matchmade only'). Sorry because that kinda sucks, but glad to know it's not just me. Might be an issue on Riot's part.

I mean, you still died 15 times. While 16/15/26 isn't a *bad* scoreline, I wouldn't say it's S worthy. Aim for less deaths, probably.

You can only earn mastery tokens from Blind, Draft, Solo/Duo Ranked, or Flex Ranked Summoner's Rift games. The ARAM, Twisted Treeline Blind, Twisted Treeline Ranked 3v3, and Rotating Gamemodes won't grant you any mastery tokens upon earning an S.
: Spectral Cutlass makes Garen way to strong.
lmao I think the item is fun was playing with a friend the other day who built it on Skarner and used it to kidnap enemies all game was funny as hell, but we still lost I'd say worth Besides it's only temporary for the event, it'll be gone soon enough so enjoy it while it's here.
: Any tips on getting out of Silver?
I'm not sure what the best approach would be, in all honesty. I placed Gold IV on this account and sort of breezed past silver on my main so I don't know *exactly* what the main struggle in going from silver to gold might be. I can give you some general tips though that might help! :> As my name might imply, I mostly play {{champion:267}} in ranked. {{champion:40}} {{champion:43}} {{champion:16}} {{champion:89}} are a few of my other favorite picks though. ------------------ A little rundown of how I treat a ranked game: **LANING PHASE** Directly following champ select, you should know if your lane has advantage/disadvantage or if it'll be more skill based. Also keep in mind the synergy whatever support you chose may have with your ADC. The advantage/disadvantage might mean a little less because champions aren't being played to their full potential, but I feel is still important to note. Acting on this knowledge, I think, is important. For example, if you're playing a ranged support into a melee support, harass them whenever you are safely able to do so. Don't be afraid to roam to help jungle or mid if you see a possible play either if the current situation allows you to do so. Keeping wards up and an eye on the map is also pretty key, and this applies to the entire game, but especially early if you plan on making a play. Wouldn't want the enemy jungler popping up out of nowhere to ruin your fun just because you forgot to ward river or weren't paying attention. :p *control wards are beautiful and you should definitely buy them. A lot.* **MID-LATE GAME** Depends on how the game is going, honestly. But don't feel like you need to be a babysitter for your ADC. You're supporting a whole team afterall, not just one person. That being said, if they rotate to push a lane and aren't 100% safe doing so, sticking by them isn't a bad idea. A big issue I see in a lot of games, including my own, is the fact that everyone wants to be the carry. Nobody is going to carry 100% of the time, and sometimes you'll get carried. It's not fun to accept, but it's true. And I'm not necessarily talking about you, rather your 0/8/2 Yasuo who insists on farming and dying trying to get a kill instead of helping out your 12/0/0 Irelia. When a teammate is fed like that, you should probably play around them and try to turn that lead into a win. What you do here also probably differs greatly depending on the type of support you play. You seem to prefer supports that can dish out some damage if they need to. Probably focus on bursting out priority targets and team-fighting with champs like {{champion:63}} or {{champion:25}} who is especially good at picking off enemies who overstep or make mistakes. For the more enchanter types like {{champion:117}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:16}} prioritize keeping your team alive, sticking mostly to your back line and using abilities like {{champion:117}} Polymorph or {{champion:16}} silence to keep enemies who want to dive on your carry or carries at bay. Gonna emphasize the importance of wards again here; They're super important! Like, SUPPPERR important. Keeping vision control on important objectives like Herald/Baron and Dragons can be game changing. This means making sure you have control wards ready and making sure you exchange your trinket for sweeper once you get you upgraded vision item. I think denying enemy vision is just as important as having vision for your own team. **CLOSING OUT A GAME** This is something I think most people at least at gold and below struggle with, myself included. It can be hard sometimes to end the game, but a few important things to remember: -If you're in the lead and winning teamfights, you don't *need* to rush. by this I mean ya'll don't need to rush it down mid like there's no other solution. Taking the time to rotate and break the enemy base open will probably work just fine, and be less risky. I've had teammates in ranked games suggest this themselves. -If you're in their base taking an inhibitor or nexus towers after a teamfight, and they're all respawning, just leave. Take the objective if you can, but don't try to fight unless you know you can win. I've seen too many almost throws because people don't know when to back off. Just back off and reset. -If the enemy base is open, they're all dead and won't respawn immediately, don't go baron, just go for the end. When you see a good solid and safe opportunity to end, go for it. No need to stall the game out and give them an opportunity to come back, no matter how small. ------------- Sorry for writing so much, but I hope something here helps you out. If you want a simple place to start, I took a look at your ranked match history on OP.GG, make sure you exchange your trinket for sweeper when you get your ward upgrade, and try to buy more control wards.

: Can someone help me
I've only played a handful of jungle (mastery 7 ww tho), but I'd say gank bot like you'd gank any other lane. Make sure you've got vision up, ping, make sure your laners will follow up and go in. Of course having a support with good hard CC like a Braum or Morgana would make things infinitely easier. Just be careful and aware of what summoner spells are up, levels of the enemy laners vs your own, if post 6 what ults are up, where the enemy mid/jg is, does top have teleport up?, etc Because bot ganks can quickly turn sour if you don't respect those things.
: They dont want you to climb fast, period. This is why they place you with potatoes. I experience it all the time... it sucks man
So what should I do to counteract this? Win a few games and intentionally lose some sprinkled in to keep from climbing super quickly? (I would NEVER intentionally lose a game, it just seems like this is what Riot would prefer as opposed to me trying and winning consistently)

: There is way to much damage in this game look at this kasai
You failed to mention that the Ezreal doing the deleting had 25 kills, over 200 farm, and was AP with full build + death cap. Yeah he gonna do damage, like literally all of their gold is on him.
: Bronze -> Silver -> Gold -> **Def Not High Elo Yet** -> Platinum -> Diamond -> Masters -> **Challenjour** -> Challenger
The new tiers are supposed to break up the massive gaps in skill in the bronze division and between platinum and diamond, as was stated in the dev update. so it'd be more something like: New Tier 1 > Bronze > Silver > Gold > Platinum > New Tier 2 > Diamond > Masters > Challenger We don't need a new tier between gold/plat or masters/challenger xdd
: Mastery 7 Icons
I love the idea and think it'd be absolutely awesome to have a Taliyah or Nami icon! The only problem I see with it is that with over 130 champions, that is a lot of icons/emotes to produce and put into the game. It'd be a MASSIVE project that they'd be undertaking to provide free content. The current incentive for reaching mastery 7 with a champion is that snazzy loading screen banner and the mastery 7 emote you can flash in game. I feel like that is enough, personally, as cool as champion specific icons would be.

Some people are just casual players and don't care about ranked. some people only play for fun with friends ( imho ranked is considerably less fun than a goofy norms with some pals). Some people simply don't want to put in the time or effort into playing ranked and climbing. I don't understand why being unranked should be considered a 'bad' thing.

Yeah, I've told her so many times I needed alone time at times and she constantly would cry & rage about it.

Honestly, I don't know who you are or much of anything about you, but I guarantee it'd be better if you left her. Like I said, even if it is hard, you can't keep going on feeling like garbage because she's insecure. You said it yourself that shes making you depressed. If you are really concerned for her well-being, break up with her, and let her parents/friends/family know that she insn't emotionally stable and might need some type of therapy. Thats the best advice I can give you.

It genuinely makes me happy that Riot still adds new voice lines to characters.

Tips for getting S-, S, S+ consistently: * **Farm well**; you'll need above average CS (less important if you're looking for an S on a support but you'll need a LOT of assists) * **Have a good KDA**; lots of kills/assists, few deaths as possible * **Participate in taking objectives**; helping with dragons, turrets, and baron * **Ward**; this _DOES_ have an impact iirc, epsecially for support champs * **Do damage (especially on an AD)**; make sure you participate in fights and deal a fair amount of damage

: RIOT PUNISHMENT SYSTEM REWORK! UPDATE 2019!
>Riot should have a system built in that all players must complete in order to gain access to the game. This sounds good on paper, but putting that system into place may be harder than it sounds. Even then it doesn't fix the players who are fine going into a game but start lagging halfway through because of some unforeseen issue with their connection. >Banning players? Not a wise decision RIOT I fully am on Riot's side with the decision to ban toxic players. Nobody is perma-banned immediately. Players are given several warnings and chances before being permanently banned. They may make a new account, but odds are they'll just end up banned again if they don't change their behavior. It isn't about 'customers' it's about trying to keep an enjoyable competitive environment for the people who aren't toxic assholes, in my opinion. >" the offenders queue" The whole 'prisoner's island' concept for toxic players has been talked through over and over. I doubt Riot will ever implement this. >Oh I forgot to mention, the offenders queue is not focused on balancing like normal game modes. This queue will be separated in 3 tiers low, med, high. This means that bronze 5 offenders will be queued up with gold 1 offenders, platinum 5 offenders will be queued up with diamond 1 offenders. Master and challenger are grouped. This way people will experience dramatic games where there is no balance at all and will be painstakingly unpleasant. lol, this will never happen. It's kinda fucked up.

Elohaven (NA)
: I think I made a new League Record
: I am a toxic player
I don't find flashing mastery to be overly toxic (probably because I'm guilty of this too, lol) But I've never really been in your position. Here are a few things you might consider trying though: * /mute all, If you are having a REALLY hard time chatting nicely with others, don't give yourself the opportunity at all. Just mute everyone and stay away from the chat box, everything you need to communicate can be done so with pings. * replace "ggez" with just a simple "gg" or "ggwp" * if you play with friends, and are really frustrated with a non-premade teammate, just rant about it in voice chat instead of the text chat if you must. Telling your buddy "AH MAN, our midlane SUCKS, they're so bad!" in voice chat might help you vent your frustration, instead of telling a teammate that in game where it could result in a chat restriction or ban. Otherwise I don't really see anything wrong. Mastery flashes, emote spams, and 'disrespecting corpses' are sort of more banter in my eyes than actual toxicity. Hope this helps a little.
