: Should I do back to back games or cycle thru champuons constantly?
I feel like that depends on situations. I almost never play the same champion twice even though I probably should. Though I play weird things bot. {{champion:50}} {{champion:113}} {{champion:32}} have been added to my roster, but that doesn't mean you should play them xP The problem with supporting is a lot of adcs dont know how to attack move, use wards, use map, farm properly after lane etc etc. So your constantly pushed in sidelanes due to it. IF YOU are looking to carry games I would highly recommend playing mage "supports" {{champion:99}} {{champion:63}} {{champion:143}} {{champion:43}} {{champion:25}} {{champion:518}} The reason for this is after lane. You can take all the CS you want. Period. Since no one else is in low elo (including gold.) But if your someone that is wanting to hard carry in the way of "haha my team can't die and it seems you guys are dying" {{champion:267}} {{champion:350}} (Takes a while.) Need a tank? {{champion:12}} {{champion:223}} (Be careful with the catfish. Been nerfed so much its really hard to play him now.) {{champion:412}} (Pretty tanky if you can gather souls.) The real problem is, support as a role realize SO HEAVILY on your team not to be clicking on the wrong player to kill etc. Also MASSIVE note: If you're going to play a melee tank support ({{champion:12}} Like Alistar for instance. {{item:3302}} DO NOT buy this item. {{item:3301}} ALWAYS this item. Coin is DOUBLE or more in terms of how fast you obtain gold. After lane you'll never obtain gold ever again with Relic. DO NOT buy the item. If your a mage you can buy {{item:3303}} but make sure to only buy it if your confident you're gonna win lane.) Also another tip: Support is the carry of botlane. Not the adc. You're the one that has to do all the work. Its very annoying as well. So if your not getting kills and such and they are. The support is probably the problem. Anyhow, some games it will be impossible to win your lane due to the match up some are easy lanes. Hope some of this helps! {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}

Thank god I dont play the shit rift anymore. Back to my balanced Aram.

: Edit. I am looking for Who you think is the very most reliant. My intent is to show how personal impact and constancy reward players. Trying to walk my talk. Throw some champs You think are stand out.
Sure. EDIT: all enchanters or anything that was made to actually be a support. {{champion:40}} {{champion:117}} {{champion:201}} {{champion:16}} {{champion:350}} {{champion:44}} {{champion:497}} {{champion:432}} Only ACTUAL champions that on design were supports that are okish: {{champion:412}} {{champion:12}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:267}} (Even Nami is pretty team reliant that she can't carry a team if you got monkeys.) Only support thats a "support" that needs no team {{champion:555}}
: Is having fun possible now in League of Legends ? I'm not sure...
I thought the same. Till I went to Aram. Jesus christ... Arams balancing is a universe better than Summoners Rift... Its insane... Then again some things are still awful (Like not getting a good champion.) but just try your best and go next. Before finding how good aram was the other day I was thinking of Deactivating my account for a Hiatus. Now Arams addictive. Screw the Unbalanced Rift.

: What supports do you think are to team reliant to climb?
All supports are team reliant to the max. If you have a brain dead team. You lose. {{champion:99}} {{champion:63}} {{champion:143}} {{champion:161}} {{champion:101}} {{champion:142}} - Just carry yourself. Everyone is a mountain.

: Is there a way to disable chat all together?
Go to interface: Turn show ally chat off (Yellow box is now clear.) then turn off matchmade something aka /all chat (box has yellow thing in it if i recall this time.) That gets rid of chat all together (You also can't type so no toxicity form you :) ) I wouldn't recommend turning off pings till after lane stage though... That has to be done manually most likely. Though most people are telling you BACK OFF. Due to vision showing things coming to slay you. And pings after are because you made a terrible choice.
: After less than four days at DotA's TI9, 109/117 (93%) heroes have been picked in the group stages.
Why leagues not a balanced compared to Dota is quiet easy. about 100 less item choices in the game. Starting items go on till 25 minutes or longer. And all you do is keep "upgrading" starters in a sense. For instance there's a character called Juggernaut in Dota 2. Hes somewhat similar to {{champion:86}} and {{champion:157}} put together. But completely different obviously. He buys items called "Wraith Bands" these would be equivalent to {{item:1042}} but give hard stats like armour, or damage due to his attribute and attack speed. After going Wraiths he transitions into other items. But the point is. He buys from 2-3 wraith bands. {{item:1055}} (Essentially buying 3 dorans blades in this case.) League doesn't have good items in this game. For instance. Where is out Anti CC items? Tenacity? How about.... COMPLETE immunity for 10 seconds (except physical stuns...). That's what a bkb (Black King Bar from Dota 2) does. Goodbye CC, goodbye all negative effects (obviously there are things that go through but that would literally take me all fucking day.) The point is, Dota has items that HARD COUNTER. Anything in the game. League has dogshit in terms of outplayability through items. {{item:3157}} {{item:3222}} {{item:3140}} {{item:3040}} Are really the only items that we have in this game that has HUGE outplay (Yes I'm missing support items.) Dota has about..... 50? Items I would say. From an item that can polymorph, to stun, silence, root. Make you immune to CC.... Immune to all physical or magical damage for X time... Auras out the ass.... League is literally so behind... The devs dont understand a good way to "spice" the game up. Isn't ruining the game. Its adding things that would benifit it... Like an item that gives immunity to fucking CC for 3 seconds and immedietly gets you out of knock up that EVERY champ has {{sticker:sg-shisa}}
: What will Fiddle's 3-hits passive be?
Hit an enemy with 3 abilities or a mix of autos. Enemy is feared for 3 seconds. {{sticker:sg-kiko}}

: I honestly just miss the old support quest rewards, relic shield's shield, frost queens movespeed on proc... They were so nice.
Shame adcs and other roles always fuck up supports having fun. On everything.
: Frost queens claim was broken utility and stat wise but i agree with the rest.
: Cleanse/qss are next to pointless cause his stun duration isnt that long If you flash away, he flashes after you or just qs Other than that, i agree
Nothing works against Jax. 1 second your dead. We need an item that gives 3 seconds immunity to all cc tbh :/
: How the hell do you counter Jax?
{{summoner:3}} {{summoner:1}} {{summoner:4}} {{item:3140}} {{item:3157}} Doesnt work? Well then you dont

Reksee (NA)
: As a support main, I don't know how much more of this I can take before I just quit
Hello fello support friend! Little question are you buying {{item:3504}} ? If so, stop buying it. The cost < the worth and stats of the item. Instead try this: {{item:1001}} (I always show brown to represent boots that you may need situationally.) {{item:3107}} {{item:3174}} (Obviously Support item) Now, a little rule of thumb I like to use in the practise tool especially with supports. By level 14 the max items you have are 2 (Without boots and support item) Another rule of thumb: {{item:3069}} {{item:3092}} {{item:3401}} DO NOT FULLY UPGRADE. The gold < the stats once again. This meta YOU NEED stats. YOU NEED to help your team with their stats. {{item:3096}} {{item:3098}} Are the only things you need. {{item:3097}} You obviously dont play tank/melee but if you do make sure not to buy this either. Since its worse than all the gold items in every way. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}} Try it out. Have fun friend {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
: Do tenacity runes even work? Are they placebo runes?
Over half the CC in this game is Knockups / displacements. Tenacity doesn't effect that. So move away from the rune till Tenacity reduce knockups like it should have since season 1...
: How does Knight's Vow interact with champions like Thresh, Ivern or Kayle?
Hello there friend Just like {{item:3074}} {{item:3748}} {{item:3302}} {{champion:10}} Once she turns ranged, shes ranged. No longer melee. So {{item:3109}} gets the reduced passive. {{champion:412}} Ranged. {{champion:427}} I'm actually not sure. However I believe if he uses bush range hes ranged. As I believe the "ranged" passive on these items classify after a certain # of range (modifier?) {{item:3094}} Pretty sure if you put this on certain melees it would make it so the passive would be reduced during the 1 auto you get of longer range.
: I looked you up, you have a 58 percent win rate with swain. This is pretty good but your also silver. The champion doesn't really matter at that elo as long as you understand objectives.
Yup that's overall. Not after the newest buffs to him. Also doesn't really matter what elo your in. % is %.

Yea I would highly recommend {{champion:69}} tbh if you enjoy her a lot do it! And if you get auto filled adc. Play cassiopeia. Shes free wins right now with how broken she is if you can play her well
: this isnt even news tbh, theyve literally stated they will never use boards for balance. rightfully so tbh.
Nope not news. Yet the boards continue to have anyone talking on them. Waste of people's time. My post is to help people move on. Even this is a wasted effort.

: There shouldn't be something with a 100% (or almost 100%) pickrate. [Flash]
Lets talk a little bit about summoner spells shall we? Summoner spells for some reason have a "Lane" dependency" {{summoner:21}} Usually only used on mid lane mages that have a hard time escaping. So they can live just that bit longer. {{champion:161}} {{champion:99}} {{champion:101}} Come to mind with this summoner spell. And sometimes I find it on Supports {{champion:16}} but the problem is. The summoner spell doesn't compare to how good flash is. Flash could have a 10 minute CD. And it will always be taken. Why? Cause it gets you OUT of bad spots. Since this game is league of skill shots. NOT league of point and click anymore (Back int he old days Flash was PROBABLY taken even slightly less.) {{summoner:1}} This summoner is just useless. Half the "stuns" or things that it should stop it doesn't. {{champion:82}} Ult is a PRIM example. {{champion:90}} {{champion:19}} R's {{champion:56}} R things of that nature. But it simply does nothing for the job. Its a useless summoner spell {{item:3140}} {{item:3222}} both do better, AND you can have a completely better summoner. {{summoner:3}} Usually taken on the support role. Or someone that feels they dont have confidence in their lane OR against {{champion:91}} No level 2 kill for you buddy. This summoner has been nerfed so hard that... Truly it doesn't feel as good as it did season 6. But still its used almost always on a support. {{summoner:6}} A budget flash. The only thing noticeable about this summoner is "you can move through units" this would be amazing for the AWFUL minion block we have in this game. {{champion:122}} {{champion:120}} come to mind on this spell for the reason of... Kiting vs this champs is a great key way to make it so they do nothing. (And Hec gets more damage through movement speed if i remember correctly.) {{summoner:7}} Usually taken exclusively by the ADC's. Gives movement speed, and a heal. Why? Cause its utility for you and your support to hopefully live even a bite longer in a bad trade. {{summoner:14}} Kill lane. Mids usually take it... Lowest cooldown in the game with {{summoner:21}} {{summoner:6}} (180) apart from {{summoner:11}} (Being 90 seconds for recharge and 15 for next use.) {{summoner:12}} Usually taken by top unless you have a {{champion:350}} or you feel like your going to feed v-v How what do all the popular summoners have in common? {{summoner:7}} {{summoner:3}} {{summoner:14}} they all bring proper utility to a fight. They HELP your team NOT just yourself. If they wanted to make other summoner spells more competitive: {{summoner:21}} Make it an AOE shield. 5 man shields like {{item:3190}} but LESS shield obviously. Or maybe the same. This summoner would probably be taken ALL the time. Not because "that would be op" but because it would finally be strong. And not so 1 person only. It would have a utility function for your team. {{summoner:6}} Make move through units for everyone in an aoe. Don't even need to give the movement speed effect. {{summoner:1}} Get rid of ALL CC. Knockups EVERYTHING. Or just give it an aoe would work aswell. This spell feels way too op for an aoe though. So it would be better off just removing ALL CC unlike {{item:3222}} and {{item:3140}}
: Hash does bring up a good point.
Maybe in high elo like plat + but definetly iron - gold people WANT to play top. The least desired in these elo is definitely jungle.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: August 2
SR Balance "As mentioned previously we're now in the part of the year where we'll be making few balance changes for a while, keeping the game in a stable state." When has your team been balancing? I haven't seen it all year. Time for another SHIT worlds like Ardent Censer. We shipped an update to LoL's cursor in July 2018. Our belief was that the updated version would be a better experience for most players. That generally seemed to be true, testing did indicate that a subset of players indicated they found the cursor change really disruptive though. Yup still is. Most people hate it. Hundreds if not millions in fact. So seems the updated cursor should be the one leaving.
