: If you had 2 inhibs down, you were _already fucking winning._ If you had even a modicum of patience, you could have let those lanes push into their base, waited for them to make the choice to either let the waves push Nexus or go and clear them, and _then_ taken a teamfight. Sure, Cait stalled out the game. You know who else stalls out games that way? Literally **_every_** mid laner with ranged waveclear.
Most mid laners don't restrict us in such a way that we have minimal control over how we want the game to proceed. We did have patience. It's not like we weren't waiting out the minions to crash into their nexus tower. As a matter of fact, we were waiting. They stalled for a pretty long ass time without us really being able to prevent the stall too. At the very least, she stalled long enough for our top and mid to make a mistake and get themselves killed. This is just needless difficulty no one really needs. I'm sure if there was more communication we could've found a way to break through this issue. But that doesn't mean it isn't an issue because what I showed was just a **_mild_** case of what normally happens. This crap is worse when she's ahead doing this under your own towers and lanes.

: She has a 48% win rate atm (dropped 4% with the last nerf) give me a break, caitlyn isnt even top or S tier anymore, now we have mf/jhin with lethaliy and draven/twitch who are still unnerfed, cait is like A or B tier atm.
They're doing to Cait what they did to Rengar. Sure, she's balanced now. But did they REALLY fix the problem? No. Rengar one shots easier than before, but way more frustrating to play AS than against. This doesn't stop him from deleting your carries and still making people really frustrated when fed. Except, he just became a clunky, less fun version of himself. Cait doesn't have that late game damage she HAD. But now she's simply more clunky and still have huge anti siege potential that makes her THAT much more frustrating to play against. The only times I've won vs Caits is when they never throw down traps OR we pick her before she's able to do her bullshit. In straight out even fights, it's difficult to do anything when you have to worry about so many different things (cait traps adds 30-40% more pressure as well).
: whichh makes it easy for their blitz to land a hook as your only other option is sidestepping into a trap. It might be possible to navigate through that in a vacuum, but it limits your room to navigate through an actuall fight by a lot.
This is exactly my thoughts and I couldn't have said it any better. I really even forgot to throw blitzcrank in there, who was the whole other reason for the frustration of not wanting to hit those traps.
: I dont know, just move to another lane. Or better yet go to the left side with a huge gaping hole. To actually trigger the traps, you have to be practically on top of them. However I will say its her traps that need to be nerfed, some what, not her attack speed. This much I will agree on.
There was nothing else to get in the other lanes. We couldn't push past that point where her traps were to get the last inhib. If we went to the other 2 lanes, we would've simply been trying to force end the game because she'd simply just wall off the inhib from the other side. Traps are annoying af.
: Idk about you, but that is a pretty easy trapline to navigate.
She gapped the holes as we came up. The point is, it's difficult to just fully engage on their team because of this. You already know an entire team in soloQ will not simply walk over to the left side. And think about how retarded it is for everyone on a team to just line up in a conga line walking through those traps trying to engage on their team. As long as she reacted proactively, there wasn't really much we could do. :/

Your mouse isn't hovering over the icon. Also, there's no screenshot of having the regular portrait there so it's hard to tell. I've never had an issue transforming nor has anyone else I've seen.

Sciela (NA)
: See, I do though. I go to work almost every day, and I get out of the house any opportunity I have -- whether that's going to the farmer's market on the weekend, or going grocery shopping, or anything.
Lol, talk to people more. I've never taken the initiative for gaining friends. People always ask for my number and message me. It's what you do after that determines whether that person becomes your friend or not. It's all about how you keep in contact or if you even try to keep in contact. If someone has to keep messaging you etc, then it might come off as you not having any interest in being anything more than acquaintances and might deter them from seeking a closer relationship. I don't have many friends myself. In fact, I throw the term around so loosely, I can more than 100% say that I don't exactly have any true friends. But I DO have acquaintances that hang on the edge of being friends. I'm one of few people that enjoy my alone time more than spending time with people. I like watching netflix and reading books and hate when people drag me out of my comfort zone -- but I have no choice since I still need human contact. My CLOSEST friend, to be honest, I met on a game called fiesta **_10 years ago_**. We play different games and just hop in skype/discord to talk every now and again. I've met even more people through internet gaming than I have in real life. We haven't even MET yet, but we do plan on it. It's mostly me just lacking money going through college to take a trip up to his at this point. Not to mention I've met more people through him and my acquaintances over the net have grown. It's to the point where I'm actually a close friend to even his family members. We've bought each other games etc as well, as well as lend money to one another when it was needed and always pay each other back. Some times we scrap the debt. You just have to put yourself out there. I have made one friend in the last 2 years of college and I'm content with that. There's no secret to making friends. Do what you love and meet people who also do what you love, and you'll naturally make friends. I love playing volleyball and basketball, as well as video gaming. I joined the game club in my college and made acquaintances there that invite me to play games every now and again. I found a local basketball court and always look out for when people start balling and join in. I've made acquaintances there. I do volleyball tournies at my college and made acquaintances there. Just make sure you talk to people and if THEY don't ask for your number, make sure to hint at it to see if they ask for, or look for THEIR hints at it and you be the first to bring it up. Things like, "It was fun, lets do it again some time" or anything involving a second time meeting or see you around are HUGE hint droppers. I don't know if this was just a meme post or if you're serious, but that's just my 2 cents. Coming from one socially dysfunctional human being to another.
Theaches (NA)
: Getting to level 20 is hell
Even with all the free champs... you don't have 16 champs starting out, so you have to play blind. I've never personally had any issues with blinds. I don't know why so many people run into such things. Besides that, making a new account is the best. You get to play whatever without worrying about anything. People are still toxic af, but it's less toxic than most games. Other than that, you wind up playing with the same people over and over anyways...

Really not how it works. ;i The higher you go, the more you expect to count on your team. When you can't even count on your teammates for simple things, especially being in diamond, it only further frustrates you. If you're in Bronze, you know your team is garbo and won't know how to follow up on anything so you wouldn't rely on them at all. In silver, you feel like your team should have a bit more of an inkling on follow ups, but wouldn't rely on them for complicated play. In Gold, you feel like your team should know a bit more now and that you can entrust certain task to them: Like lane ganking/counter ganking or getting a counter objective. In plat, you can expect your team to know when to push/not push/ freeze lanes and get a bit more complex in the way you do things. In Diamond, you have a lot of hope that your team can follow up on plays, read pings and know more of what you can and can't do. The higher you go, the more teamwork you need. The less you can rely on your team, the more frustrating it is -- especially when they enemy team is in complete harmony.

It does %health magic damage. Meaning, building MR against him lowers it by a good chunk. Nasus also has insane sustain and to top it off, like I already said, wither is Gnars nightmare. It's not a good matchup for Gnar after the 10minute mark. Why not try it out and you can see what I mean.
Lock On (NA)
: Vayne could use some increases to her mana cost on her Q to help curb her ridiculously low-CDR mobility on top of her true damage passive, which spikes the second she hits 6 or buys a zeal item. She is also difficult to punish considering how powerful the sustain off Warlords is atm.
Mana costs only exist in laning phase. Why add more mana cost when it takes a chunk of mana for her to use her Q in lane now?

I miss the days where they made somewhat educational content and if you wanted to laugh you would watch Dunkey. Then people act like this absolute dog shit is the end all be all. Do you know how many people defended Camille at launch solely because Gbay made that shit video saying she wasn't OP at all? Lmao she was broken beyond belief and you still had people trying to pull "No she's not! Look at this shitty Gbay video!"
He said her KIT wasn't broken, which it isn't. He did say her numbers were a bit high and if she needed nerfs that's all they would need to hit (aside from the ulti letting a target go on death). Notice how after the nerfs, she hit rock bottom almost instantly. She's highly determined on numbers. Riot tacked on too much true damage, which in turn meant MOST of her damage came from her 2nd Q. Literally. That's her whole power. That 2nd Q. It's bad by design to put so much emphasis on one part of a kit.

Poor map awareness probably being the worst. Why I want to join: Interested in being a part of a team to note differences between team oriented and soloQ players
: Never seen salt quite that bad, but when you're the Jungler and you look at your lanes and go, "Okay, sweet, Gnar vs Nasus top lane? Piece of cake, I don't even have to worry about him-" _*An Ally has been slain*_ with a picture of Gnar solokilled by said Nasus, your heart just drops. There's nothing sadder than watching easy lanes just get solokilled relentlessly while you're on Gromp. All you can do is cry at scuttlecrab.
I don't know where the misconception is, but Gnar vs Nasus isn't a walk in the park for Gnar. That matchup, if the Nasus isn't stupid, is impossible after the 10minute mark for Gnar.

You're your own contribution to elo hell. You also have some sort of power trip and I can only deduce that you've been a troll.

If you simply flat out refuse to get better, then go ahead and "troll". Do so at your own risk. Actually, having even said you're going to "troll" on your alt account, should be more than enough grounds to ban your account. Maybe I should flag you right now. Hey, Riot! We have someone attempting to troll on an alt account! Please ban this guy before any damage is done.

Her Q literally makes up most of her damage. Her DPS is significantly lower without the use of her Qs. Saying its "3 escapes" is misleading. It's 3 movement based attacks.
: Except Pantheon is there- and he's at least as brainless as she is+ probably more since literally three out of his 4 abilities are point-and-click.
2 out of 4 are point and click. And on that notion, Panth is brain dead. Riven requires at least a little bit of skill. You can pick panth up and do well on him. You can't pick Riven up and expect to do well on her.

My point was on getting the LPQ for one leave in the last 50+ games that I played. To top it off, it's already at 20minutes. If it was 5 or 10minutes, it wouldn't be such a huge problem. 20 minutes is a lot of time. In the last 150 games I've played, I'm certain I've left around 2 times only.

AdeBug (NA)
: so 1. you leave when you get tilted 2. you leave once a month and think it's ok 3. you have inet that goes down on a rather constant basis Now imagine you having at least 2 afk'ers in your team, per month. Lemme guess, you're ok with that? BS. Plus the normal rate is way way higher, but even 2 per month sux balls imo. And you are helping this game suck balls for other people. And you expect no punishment, when you have lots of priors. I hope your lunch catches on {{summoner:14}} in the microwave. (just so you have an actual OMG my house is on fire excuse to afk)
I never said my internet goes down on a consistent basis. I don't leave games once a month. I have more than 2 afkers a month on my team already and some games that I leave already has 1 or 2 afkers in it. I'll accept my punishments for leaving. On a side note, if a game is going to make me super frustrated, I rather leave than sit down and be miserable playing it. That ruins the ENTIRE point of trying to play the game.

: It takes alot more than a couple of games here and there to drop a punishment tier for leaver buster.
It's been 50+ games since I last left a game. That's nowhere near a couple of games "here and there".
: 1st game left in a month havent played for a week..... so three weeks ago you left games?
I haven't left any games in the past 2-3months. In my last 50 games, this is probably my first leave.
SrbLud (NA)
: Did you leave the game? Yes. Is it Riots fault? No. Is it your fault? Could be depending on your setup. Is it your ISPs fault? Could be. The point is, you left the game and riot has no way of knowing if you just went on a tilt alt+F4 style, or if your connection gave out. Serve the punishment and take care of your connection.
I have no idea when my net's gonna drop. It's random and doesn't happen very often.
: The leavebuster tends to base the punishments based off of the number of games since the last time you left/afk'ed/dc'ed, not the amount of time. >Normally, I'd gladly serve these LPQs since when I tilt, I tend to leave the game quite often. You past standing with the system could have also influenced how touchy the system was.
It's been 40-50+ games since my last left game. I tend to go afk once or twice out of every 100 games -- whether intentional or my net just randomly dropping.
