: I have a problem with League, and it's a problem League itself created.
Another handful of garbage games. Two easy wins and three horrific failures. The coin keeps flipping. I want to say this nice and loud so listen up. _**I HATE YOUR PLAYERS**_. The game is nice. But your players are trash. So, so, so much trash. This thread, as it is right now, is a PERFECT demonstration of it. But, you are devoted to keeping the players you have, because you can't get new ones. Maybe I'll want to play this again in a few days, or weeks or months or something. I'll probably get chat-moderated again or even temp-banned for getting angry at my team for the two losses. For the record: Game 1 had a Jungle Pyke that went 0/8 and refused to help a Cass secure a kill on the leading Renekton while she had three kills already. Game 2 fed a Jax 24 kills. Both games blamed the kill-leading support for the loss. Bite me. This isn't worth more of my time, except to complain about it. Maybe it's worth a LITTLE more of my time for complaining. I shouldn't have to play with teams THIS bad. And I shouldn't have to deal with people who blame me for the losses they cause. Why should I be the best performer on a team at 0/8? That's awful. I shouldn't be forced to play in a game, where at 0/8 I'm the best player on the team.
: "No more-so than you saying that I didn't play the best." well. maybe. but at least i am not taking everything i see and believe it,. just just like last season op gg mmr
For the record, I review three different online systems on top of the client's, to determine how I did in each game. OP.GG is most favorable. The least favorable is Mobalytics, which is convinced that I am not doing enough damage. Even Mobalytics admits that my ability to duel and lane is "mastered" ...which in my opinion is a strong indicator that I am facing under-skilled opponents. I remain convinced that I am too skilled for Bronze play level.

You can save your downvotes and vitriol. It's old hat, this is why my chat window is offscreen. I'm not here to deal with you. I'm here because Matchmaking needs work.
: Well. Youre welcome to quit. Btw op gg saying you played the best dosent mean you did...
No more-so than you saying that I didn't play the best. Have you ever heard that proverb about not poking a bear? You're not being especially productive. But honestly, I would have been surprised if the first comment was anything but "Uninstall". I'm going to downvote you now.

: Not getting VOD rewards after watching multiple games
Same problem. I skip ahead until the match starts and click away when it ends. If this is unacceptable, then your wishes are never going to be met~ {{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}}
: The new NA LOL Esports site is an atrocity...
Do I really have to watch EVERY second of a match to get credit? I can't skip forward until the match starts? I can't click away once the match ends? Be serious, now!{{sticker:sg-janna}}

: Unpopular Opinion: It is now more enjoyable to watch league than actually play it.
I find it's enjoyable to play when I: - Decide on some crazy strategy - Disregard all guides or information already present on the internet - Disregard the whining of my team - Just go for it! - And win! Or lose. Doing this has yielded what I call my "rare gems" meta: Support Cass and Yorick are my babies.
: How do you kill the enemy nexus without winning in a big teamfight?
You push. If you have a composition which relies on winning teamfights, and you can't do that, you're in trouble. But otherwise, you motion that you are going to start baron, and when they go to defend it, you scatter and either crush their base or pick people off.

: Let's Discuss: Pre-Season 2017 - Runes Reforged
Cass got screwed over, big time. She was hit the absolute hardest by these changes. She can't use 2 of the runes (Predator or Magical Footwear). She can't get any early Magic Pen, and unlike every other mage in the game, she can't build an early Sorcerer's Shoes. Every other mage gets more kit damage from Runes, so even if she picks damage runes, Cass's kit is even further behind. Her free movespeed is matched by Magical Footwear, and her late scaling is matched by Gathering Storm. Which, by the way, is seriously overpowered. And since her autoattack animation can't be performed while casting Q, W or E, about a third of the runes (that operate from autoattacks) are inherently useless. The most popular Korean rune on her is Phase Rush. This is the new Stormraider's. That should tell you how bad it really is. Cass's best option for runes is Phase Rush... Which by the way is trivialized by the speed boost from her Q. Basically everything Cass could do before, has become open territory thanks to Runes. Everyone deals so much more damage and is so much more maneuverable, Cass isn't even relevant, and she has nothing to support her play style in the changes. There are plenty of special interactions for certain Runes that every champion has. Not Cass. You want to know a special interaction? Cheap Shot, the free True Damage when damaging an impaired enemy, only affects one champion before an un-seeable cooldown is put on Cass. If she hits 3 people with Miasma she gets a single Cheap Shot proc on one of them at random. That's a pretty cheap shot in my opinion. I know you want some high end argument, about how there needs to be an option for Magic Pen or some such thing. But you guys have a serious blind spot here. Do something about poor Cass. She's garbage at this point.

I see it but you played a total of 34 games doing it. xD In your main post you made it seem like you played HUNDREDS of games as Cass support.
A lot of the data from my other seasons is long gone. Let me check my notebook... In the 2016 season I played 131 games on Cassiopeia. I have 118,541 Mastery Points with her, my second highest. Only Nami, with 127,000+, is higher. I have been playing Nami since Season 2, but when I realized Traditional Supports were essentially coinflips, my main switched to Cass. The games before that point don't matter very much because that was when the kit was rather different - round miasma etc.
: Had to look at your past games to try and understand this.... But after seeing your recent game history and seeing you don't play Cass support very often I would like to say Riot did not ruin YOUR champ. And as I like to play ADC I thank you for not playing support Cass very much.

: Fail Tank Runes
Grasp of the Undying doesn't scale well, and Overgrowth doesn't give you hardly enough even if you spend all game pushing. Hell I can TP back and forth between lanes catching minion waves, and I won't get anything worthwhile from Overgrowth. What's good is Demolish. And Second Wind. Second Wind is REALLY good early but it falls off. But early is what you want it for. There's not enough good defensive options.

In the past this much playing would've landed me at LEAST double that amount. Let me frame this with my perspective. Over the last 11 games, I have earned enough EXP to reach lv31. I have lost more than I have won. Too bad for me. I got the 1st win of the day for the 8th, but not the 9th. I have earned: 116, 139, 199, 186, 234, 228, 145, 712 (1WD) 110, and 234 EXP as well as a mystery amount when I duo'd. (If any) It adds up to a little over 2400 EXP. Ding! For this I got a Champion Capsule with 4 champs: Evelynn, Kayle, Tristana and Twisted Fate. If I mill them all I get about 900 Essence (Kayle is only worth 90, I think all the others are 270) It was as though, for my 11 wins, I earned: 43, 52, 74, 69, 87, 85, 54, 267(1WD), 41, 87 and (41, by process of elimination) BE. Now let's compare to the IP I earned, to the nine games I played immediately prior to the patch. I earned 117, 101, 80, 92, 63, 320 (1WD), 93, 265(1WD), 80. We're getting about ** half as much** on average, and that's assuming we get lucky in our champion capsules and roll mostly 270 champs. The more "scum-champs" we get, like Kayle and Nunu, the less rewarding that capsule is going to be. And the capsules are only going to get harder to earn. I've unlocked every champ I want already. I have a full kit of 20 rune pages. I'm one of the **lucky and persistent ones.** But if you think your audience isn't going to notice you turning the hot water down to lukewarm, you're mistaken.

I just _drag the chat box offscreen_. Press Enter and then click the blue bar at the top of the chat and drag it to the very bottom of the screen. Voila! If I need to say something that badly, like "We should all be buying armor" I don't need to see myself type it. And I won't care what their replies are in that case.
: Getting permabanned and losing all the skins I bought made me stop being toxic
It didn't stop me from being toxic. I was a perfectly nice player _before_ I started playing League of Legends. It was League that taught me what it meant to be toxic. I love this game... but I hate the people who play it.
: What is a bale?
a "bale" is a large ream of a grassy plant, usually forced together by machine nowadays, and wrapped with twine to prevent it from coming apart. Bales are often made of straw, hay, cotton and other grains like alfalfa. Bales are primarily used to feed livestock, and it is a standard unit of measurement in the farming world.
: IP to Blue Essence Conversion Rate
I believe the exchange rate for IP-to-Blue is going to be 1:1. a 6300 IP champ is going to cost 6300Blue, and current Blue is getting scaled accordingly.
: Does Riot know that I am a smurf?
Rito's mysterious magical matchmaking Morgmundigr accounts for a lot of things. A real new player misses CS; takes a lot of turret shots; gets lost in the jungle etc. If your gameplay exhibits none of these things (ie. high objective damage dealt, low turret damage received, high CS percentage, efficient pathing) then even if your KDA is unimpressive, your ability will be detected and you will be paired with stronger opponents.

I don't have practice with Sona and my plate is full, I can learn her later. And I just don't like Morgana. I don't want to do it. I bought her and didn't like. What happens when support Pantheon flavors and starts crowding in? If I buy Miss Fortune as an ADC, am I going to have to pick around it on my support list? About the only thing I can do is sort by Mastery and that's not perfect either, if I'm learning Zyra then it scoots all over the list as I get more and more practice at it. It won't remember the settings so I have to filter for support, then switch to a sort method like Mastery or Favorited, and it's just Half-Convenient.
: Patch Chat with the Playtest Team - 7.19
The Reforged system doesn't include any discrete form of Experience boost. I know these runes were unpopular, but I tended to play them on champs that would try to stay forever in lane, get an early 18, and become monstrous from just the gains on their levelups, like Cho'Gath, Yorick, and Zilean. What is there in the new system, for these timing champs that have a window of advantage based around their kit power?

: Runes Reforged: DoT champions
I feel like they each have their own solutions. I play Support Cass and Top Swain so let me tell you what I'm probably gonna do. Swain's going to be playing with Phase Rush, he's largely an immobile champ so after landing 3 hits, a big burst of speed is just what I want. Nullifying Orb to keep me alive when things are rough, Absolute Focus to turn up the heat when my HP is full, and Scorch so the one that got away doesn't get away clean, one little nick from my crow will proc the free damage. Then Taste of Blood and Ravenous Hunter to round out the kit. http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/featured/preseason-update/8200-8230?build=22020146 As for Cass, she's a very different story. Probably taking Arcane Comet with her. The Ultimate Hat, Transcendence, Scorch. Cheap Shot, Eyeball Collection. http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/featured/preseason-update/8200-8229?build=21200132 My objective is to just nick people to death by applying both Cheap Shot and Scorch anytime they set a toe in the poison. I do want free power for controlling the wards, but the bulk of my killpower is in my base stats, rather than AP ratio, so it's best to use the True Damage/Magic damage burns.

I play Off-Meta Support. Usually Yorick, Cass, occasionally Sejuani. I'm thinking about picking up Orianna.
