: Yo! What issues are you having with the article?
The link was broken/down for a while. Posted below a few hours back.
: Day in the Sun
http://www.lolesports.com/en_US/articles/day-in-the-sun
: Huh? I've posted from both my accounts, including the one affected. But thanks for your erroneous judgment. Go back into the darkness, poor aggravated soul.
So you feel as though **spamming** a company that was/is aware of the situation and working to actively fix it's free game for your convenience is the best course of action? It's frankly disgusting and unnecessary childlike behavior. Of which a person of your sort will probably flip this right back on to this post, but to which deaf ears will fall.
: It's great you are aware of and have mostly fixed the connection issues; but what are you doing about compensating the hundreds or even thousands of players that have lost LP, promos, etc? The problem persisted now for about 12 hours -- the whole day -- and not once was loss prevention enabled. Where is the compensation for those of us who had our time and efforts wasted and lost a lot of ranked game progress due to an error on your end?
Your copy/pasted reply to all these posts are ridiculous. You go out of you way to talk about those affected, while implying yourself as well. Yet you have zero balls to comment from an account that is actually playing the game today. Band wagon hippy fishing for up votes. Clearly they know and have issued a fix and looking to further examine the impact this situation has given rise too. Take this down vote and go on your way.
: How does the demotion policy work?
If your hidden MMR is below where you're currently at in the ladder and you hit 0 lp you're at risk of dropping down when losing games at 0 lp. You can check sites like Na.op to get a very rough (and I mean very very rough) estimate of what your current MMR is. If you move up to 0 lp from a promotion you have a few game buffer so that you do not fall directly back down if you lose at 0 lp. Hopefully that helps a little.

I suppose statistics are made up then. With your all knowing insight and council we can conclude that Ivern in both instances is trash. Therefore, in any instance we see these builds he should indeed lose. However, there must be a rip in time as we're seeing Iverns take the stage in the LCS and put out some good showings with these "trash" builds. The facts are so stacks against you... yet you still defend such a erroneous claim. You may have beaten one or two Iverns, but there could be 100 different reasons why that is.

You allow people to play and people that never have problems with connection will get 2k ping for an entire game like I just did and then get reported for an issue CAUSED BY RIOT and have a high possibility of getting banned because everyone in the game starts to get toxic and flame and then ban that person for no issue on their part but an issue with the server and its connection to that person. I NEVER have issues with ping unless some update occurs and then I get games like the one I just had which in turn make me not even want to play the game anymore due to the toxic people and the fact I cant even play and have a good time because I'm just at 2k ping the entire game and my team is flaming me when they have no idea what is going on and they blame me for the loss even though in fact it isn't my issue but Riot's. The answer is simple. SHUT THE GAME DOWN for how ever long you need to fix the problem then bring it back. This would make all of this crap and the constantly growing toxic community of League be reduced and at little to no expense. Thanks for your time even though I doubt this means anything to anyone. " The answer is simple. SHUT THE GAME DOWN for how ever long you need to fix the problem then bring it back. " The answer is simple. Shut Your game down for how ever long it takes them to fix it and then load it back up. Seeing as how 9 other members in your games (From your post) didn't seem to have issues it's hard to peg a 2k ping problem on Riot themselves. You could have had a update going in the background, internet provider problems, or many many more situations that could affect your ping. But hey, you keep at being you (the blame others except yourself)!
: Autofill needs to stop
These posts need to stop, it's a feature, get over it. If you don't know how to play a role go spend a few matches in said role and learn. It's all about the person who has the issue not wanting to make the best of the situation at hand. If you can't learn and adapt you're going to just fall behind the rest of the curve. You assume it's always the "autofill" that dodges yet there's zero evidence in this post to support that claim. Secondly you mention that you got your main role 6 lobbies in a row then happened to get autofilled in the 7th lobby. Damn those numbers are rough, heaven forbid 1 out of 7 chances you find yourself in a less than ideal role (which you choose to not learn). It's not a system problem it's a community problem.
: Permanent Ban Appeals
I think, personally, that if a player reaches the point of being perma-banned they should have to live with that consequence. However, like any instance of this case if that said player were to create a new account and not recreate the cases that brought the perma-ban upon them they are welcomed. I do still think they shouldn't get their account back, as it's a reminder of what can and will happen if they find themselves in that scenario again. It's great that you've made strides in the right direction! Think of cases like Incarnati0n and his past accounts. He can and did reform but he's still lost all of his previous accounts.

: Curious about Singed VS Warwick ability interaction
It states on his reveal page that WW is immune to crowd control effects during the leap so I would assume there would be zero interaction. Think of it like a malphite ult. Could be differently in play, but if he suppresses someone the moment they make contact I would imagine nothing would happen.
: you're also lower Elo than me I should report you for that right off the bat trash kid
You're right, the account I made to spam rammus jungle to see how far I could make it last season is a sham. Congratz, you called out a troll account, right on. Also, your elo doesn't matter if being a terrible person/teammate is what you actually are. You could be in bronze 5 all the way up the challenger rank 1 and I would still report your tragic soul of a self.

So say the enemy team adc burns flash, now your jungle camps them. The only difference in this scenario is that it's completely fine with you. It's only when you get forced to play a unfavorable hand or make a mistake that everything is ape shit wrong. There's game modes where you can save your flash all you want, they call it Co-op vs Ai, it seems more your speed.
: how much longer?? i mean i play with gold 1 players mostly and i can keep up with their friends in friendly games and at meet ups and junk.
: Haha.. It's just that last season I struggled in placements and only won 4/10 and was Bronze I. This seasons placements went great and I won 8/10 so I was hoping for at least silver not a lower start than last season.
You have to think of a new season as a restart of the whole ladder. Everyone is shifted down. Dia + to plat and then everyone else accordingly. Had you went 10/10 you still would have most likely ended up in bronze just because of the previous seasons last recorded MMR, which in your case was bronze 2. Considering you only dropped 1 spot isn't actually that bad and a good thing. Usually you should expect to drop around a tier with a season reset. Good luck on the climb.

In your friends best interest, OP don't answer this last question. But do know it's against the rules to do what you are doing.
: Invisibility shadows?
This is an intended interaction. When an invisible enemy is hit with any source of damage it flickers revealing their location but not allowing them to be targeted. In this case it was probably the sunfire cape that triggered it. Patch notes about this: "Shimmer Hitting stealthed units briefly reveals their location. This pre-season, we wanted to create a way to deal with stealth that isn’t just “turn it off.” This new shimmer mechanic is a means of scouting for—and reacting to—stealthed enemies without completely exposing them to retaliation. WHAT ARE YOU HIDING? Damaging an Invisible or Camouflaged enemy (ex. skillshots, area-of-effect abilities, etc) will cause the air around them to shimmer, momentarily revealing their location but not making them targetable or canceling the stealth effect NO DISCOS Champions only shimmer up to once per second, even if they take additional damage during that time."
: AP, MPen, Armor, MR in the Support Role. Rylai's and Liandry's is core for her anywhere, but in Support a Sightstone comes first. Sure, you could build her AD, but all of her abilities are AP or "null" (seeds), so why would you ever do that? In Mid, I'll use Attack Speed over AP and MPen to help CSing, but it only makes her weaker overall. I'm not sure where you're getting your ideas from, but her Plants are almost *all* of her threat.
You could drop the MR glyphs for CDR scaling and more MPen. Zyra is going mainly against ad in bot lane. Late game any apc is going to burst her regardless of the extra 10 mr you get from said glyphs. I didn't say build Ad. There's a ton of different ap items. If you're support you have to make the conscious choice whether or play aggressive as a full on secondary APC late game or the full support game with more generalized support items. More so you would want to go the first of the two, but different situations call for different builds/build paths. All I'm saying is if you feel worthless without 1 ability (her seeds) you're doing something wrong. There's still a ton of potential in her hit when her seeds are on cd. Her q and e have both pretty large hit boxes paired with rylias is powerful. There's more to just placing seeds and letting the plants do the work.
: Yes, because it is totally within my power to somehow stop the community from being a toxic fecal tornado. And yeah we all played in the same NA community. Here, let me wave my god damn magic risperadol wand to fix all the shitty degenerate Mongoloids who propogate to the free to play model of this game. And all rito is an example of is how shitty game design + obnoxious amounts of advertising/esports can still allow you to make a "profit" while taking literally months to pay your "pro" players the money they won in LCS tournaments.
I'm starting to think you're just full of salt, but that's just a theory of mine. Once again excuses with no action, the most game changing approach to everything in life.
: Not really. Her Q hits decently hard, but only if it lands. Her E snare doesn't do a whole lot of work aside from maybe a minion line. Her W is seeds. Her Ultimate does a fair amount of damage, but empowered plants will dwarf that if someone is dumb enough to actually stand in them. Her auto is weak (unless hitting a tower) and also slow. She, herself, is extremely slow and doesn't build speed outside of Boots in almost any occasion. If you see her ultimate come out, 90% of the time her Q and W are also tapped, and she becomes a free kill if you get to her.
Well we can agree to disagree. I think she's very powerful outside of her seeds, and even more powerful with them. Everyone's entitled to an opinion no matter how wrong or right it is. Maybe you're using less than ideal runes or building her wrong for the situation.
: Yeah, it's totally my fault that the community is full of toxic retards and it's totally my fault this company has received millions while still pushing the same product that is extremely outdated and poorly balanced. Oh brb, let me switch my university major from biochemistry to video game design so I can make another generic ripoff of DOTA. Because there's totally money in game design right? Look at crytek yknow?
So you're admitting to taking part in the "toxic retards" category? You want something changed, and dislike it for what it is, but take no action to push for it. Instead you just rant away, my guess is further adding to the depression you get from this game. You're right there's no money in game design, rito is a lie.
: As a Zyra main, I can tell you that she is utterly worthless without her plants. The only time I ever aim to hit the enemy with my Q is when I'm intentionally dropping seeds on them at the same time. But once she "shoots her wad", she's extremely squishy and very easy to kill at every stage of the game. Just remember that she gets stronger the longer she is in the same place because of her seeds. Abuse her when she first arrives, or after she uses up her seeds on the map.

Abuse her when she first arrives, or after she uses up her seeds on the map. I don't believe this to be true at all. Without plants zyra still has a high damage output. On top of that she has 2 forms of cc that are incredible valuable. Plants are just the icing on the cake.

: The models I was talking about were 1. Bring skill ceiling up for every champion (including garen) so everyone is like azir or 2. Bring skill ceiling down so everyone is like garen. In all cases, we have to be careful of balance and as for systematic changes, I don't think things like keystone disproportionately affect model 1 over model 2.

I don't think there's a will or a way that you could bring down champions to Garen's level. Your whole design process has changed from 4 abilities and a nice thematic to 4 abilities + 4 secondary abilities + what the hell is happening thematic. You're over designing and loading kits in the present that are hurting your past developments. In Leagues current state it's as if you're building League 2.0 right over the original and trying to make their clash of design work, but failing in the process and needing to find justification for it.
: What other way is there to view MMR?
You can't see your actual MMR. That's something riot will never release. 3rd party sites give their best go about it with their own algorithm's but aren't 100%. If I were you, I wouldn't even look at this stat. You'll become obsessive and it will tilt you on the inside without you even knowing it. Just play the game and enjoy it, in a win or a loss. Soon you'll be placed and you can use that as your gauge.

Inting really only gets you banned if you make it appear you are inting. Chat + items + where deaths located, etc. It's more of a combination of a lot of little factors, that when put together really show the difference between a player having a bad game and a player intentionally feeding.
: Ranked Placements
MMR varies by team. For example if the enemy team has a collective MMR of lets say 1000 and your teams collective mmr is 900, you're expected to lose in this game, MMR wise. So if you do lose you'll go down less MMR because you were already expected to lose. However, if you win you'll gain a larger sum of MMR. The exact same idea applies for the flip of the situation. If the higher MMR team loses to the lower MMR team they would lose more MMR because they were expect to win. That's a very general idea of how it works, hopefully that helps. Also 3rd party sites that gauge MMR aren't 100% accurate and shouldn't be considered as a reliable data point. Gl on the placements.
: I am not retarded lol I know how she works I am a support main, but there is still a delay between both flowers no matter how much you mash w and also its almost impossible to hit both flowers at the same time as the spell connects not only that but to do that with 100% is truly impossible. When you time it that close you will eventually miss a flower. Also no matter how good you are there is still an animation for the flowers to hit the ground. I am not saying the cheat even helped actually probably hurt since it always placed both flowers I would just engage after they despawned or were killed bc I knew she had none left or at most 1.
I don't believe there is a delay, however, I welcome the chance to be wrong. So if you have a link please post it. My "interweb" skills are letting me down as I cannot find one that explains her w in more detail.

: Hard to say, if we made then more clunky it would be easy to brute force, but is the absolute last resort solution. We want to add Gameplay without adding clunkiness when we can. For Lee Sin, he is just overpowered, so we're bumping him down slightly next patch - junglers are performing very well at the moment and he is the best jungler. (He adds a lot to competitive play though, so we don't want to hit him too hard). EDIT: Want to bring him down without bricking him for normal and competitive play. Ie. He can be played but he's not in every game. It's not about playing favourites, but just balancing. Lee is different in that he can be playable in competitive while being fair in normal. Whereas for Amumu and Sej, usually if they're playable in competitive they will probably be unfair in normal play (probably 55+% winrate). We also have some jungle changes that may be going in in the future that disproportionately hurt Lee Sin compared to other junglers. Also I believe that when Lee sin is balanced (but still playable in competitive) he doesn't disproportionately harm jungle diversity in competitive. Yasuo I'm uncertain on the best course of action, but for sure his laning is very strong, so we could safely take that down and he would end up in a reasonable spot. Not to say for certain he needs nerfs (he is pretty frustrating to play against while being incredibly fun - negates a lot of the things you can do to him). It's interesting that one of the reasons Yasuo needs to have so many tools in his kit is because we don't have turn speed.
"(He adds a lot to competitive play though, so we don't want to hit him too hard)." - in respect to Lee Sin Question, why is this a general concern for specific champions? We don't find these statements following champions like Swain, Sion, (among many other) etc. Wouldn't the fall of one champion give rise to another? We could see diversity shift between champions further pushing the numbers of champions played competitively. Imagine a world where Elise, Lee sin, Rek'sai and many others with "loaded" kits fade away giving rise to new play-styles/strategies. It seems as though when new champions find their way into the mix competitively they are found to be dysfunctional in a sense warranting some sort of nerf to compensate for their sudden rise. Rather than embracing the uniqueness that they bring by fine tuning the new found niche they have managed to crawl in to they leave as sudden as they appear. Just interesting the way some champions are favored/my thoughts.
