Happy to help figure out what is going wrong Is this being addressed in regards to losses incurred in ranked by the bugs, people reported for "afking", and any other "fringe" cases that affected peoples accounts/ratings?

: Someone has never been denied a cannon by a last second Karma E I see.
I am genuinely sad about this as a Karma player. Also, the shield to help minions tank turret shots often could buy a few extra shots for your ADC to get on said turret.
: Do you really think "Leaver buster" was reasonable?
A much more realistic comparison than the Op's, as well as being very well written.

: Congratulations on winning you placement matches! While winning is an impressive achievement, it's not necessarily a golden ticket. The placement matches will consider some of your previous season standing and continues to adjust your MMR until it finds the best fit for you. We also have a [Ranked Play](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/204010760-Ranked-Play-FAQ#h12) guide that provides additional information on placements and ranked in general that I hope might help. Placing doesn't lock you into the tier or division, so you can totally climb the ranks as you continue to play. Best of luck!

Placing doesn't lock you into the tier or division, so you can totally climb the ranks as you continue to play. Best of luck! I just want to say here, that the quote "so you can totally climb the ranks as you continue to play" is a SEVERE misrepresentation of the difficulty it is to climb. I hear time and time again "if you are good enough you will climb". That may be true for a diamond skilled player to climb out of bronze, but much less true for, say a mid silver level player, to climb out of bronze. This has historically frustrated me to no end. Currently, in this season, I have approximately a 50/50 win rate. I may be 1 or 2 games above the .500 mark. I tried as hard as I could the vast majority of this season to climb out of bronze with support. I ranged between a 15-20 game over .500 and never climbed higher than Bronze 1. On the flip side, there are plenty of gold/silver with a much lower win rate than .500. Understanding their competition is more skilled, but so are their team mates. Just a rant from years of frustration. My gamertag is the leper con if you want to review my history. I have been on major tilt these last games, branching out to roles I may not usually play, and suffering for it, but you can review my history as a whole.
: The Karma Changes Are Missing the Point. Here Is why!
I personally find that taking away the ability to shield minions as Karma reduces her options...especially in the laning phase. I have heard a lot mentioned about hitting the R+Q combo or just hitting Q in general, and that certainly is a huge part of playing Karma. But it is just one of many parts that I feel that Karma can bring to the table, while not being stifling or OP. One of those things that shielding minions did was enable some playability around that shield. I have often used the shield to deny farm when playing either support or mid Karma, setting up my ADC or myself as the risk the opposing champ was willing to take is negated by a timely shield on an attempted last hit to a minion. I also am a fan of using shields to mitigate some damage on minions that are sieging turrets. It isn't significant, but it does allow an extra hit to be taken on a minion...buying time. I guess what I am trying to say is that shielding minions is a fun mechanic...especially when playing support Karma and I would hate to see it go.
: @RIOT - Question on player longevity and how it affects ranked play.
I will admit I hear conflicting stories about climbing out of bronze. Be that as it may, I may have neglected to say that I am primarily a support player. My win rates with supports are pretty decent with most being well over 50%, and I am about 15 games over .500 for this season. I have seen people with lower win rate percentages in much higher brackets. Those are the things I have trouble quantifying.

Thank you for this feedback, that is interesting (and frustrating).
: As a kind of sample, do any of you folks have stories on new accounts vs old accounts, where you were x rank on an older account, then created a new account and were of a similar/higher/lower ranking after your promos? If I have a brand new account and go 10/0 in a promo then have a 5 year old account and go 10/0 promo, would I expect both rankings to be the same? I certainly don't believe I am a plat player trapped in a Bronze ranking, I merely think that my thousands of other games shouldnt have an adverse affect on my current ranking.

: There are some third party programs they do allow us to use, like the one that changes the language in-game. Why not allow us to use one that changes skins for us and only us? It's stupid, plain and simple. They gave people a warning. People who didn't know that they were doing something wrong. Then several months later they banned them anyways. It's shitty any way you look at it.

By allowing you to see yourself in a skin that they have for sale, and are therefore not purchasing from them, they are losing potential dollars. That is the reason, and as a company, it is a perfectly valid one. Also, if you look at any online game, they all say, not just RIOT, that they can ban you for anything, anytime, with or without a reason you feel is justifiable. By playing the game and saying yes to that "I agree, to your terms"...get this...you are actually agreeing to their terms.

Being on the winning side doesnt give my team any right to act like cocky kids towards the enemy team . . . Right? nobody wants to be the other side of the coin, the winning team acting all mighty because they won, just stay silent, dont even type "GG" i find that a insult nowdays
I'm more wondering about your NEED to punish them. I am thanking my lucky stars if I get a win, regardless of how it happens. If we play a bad game and win, I'm happy. I will attempt to learn how I could have supported better, but I am never thinking "how can exert my will on this game to make it go worse" ...truthfully I rarely look at what my teammates are saying so they can be as cocky as they want to be. Pings are a relatively efficient way of communication in-game and pings have no hubris.
: I just want to thank you guys for confirming that I am not toxic, the community is. They gangbang one person they decided they don't like, and are relentless. The community is a pack of wolves hunting down the weakest link. I'm abandoning this thread. Thank you for setting an example of how to be "positive."
But I thought you quit the game? Http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/miscellaneous/omybggim-why-im-qutting-this-game Also, you seem to be a Tyler1 supporter, which is pretty indicative of where you stand on toxicity and accountability.

Hi JG, I just posted a few posts above this, but I am a 40 something family man that likes to play LoL, especially in the support role. I am on the east coast and typically play 9-11 PM 5 nights a week. If you are looking for some "casual" - non-fury filled game, toss me an invite - the leper con

: I'm running a stable 25mb/s with a ping of 15, thank you very much.
I have this same issue, and it seemed to have started after I joined a clan. I am not very attached to them, so when I get home from work, I'll quit out and see if I am still having issues.
