: I utterly hate velkoz, But god damn if I saw that skin I couldn't be mad.
why do you hate him? you don't like getting 100-0 from a mile away? :P
: yeah, no way a tentacle monster would fit in an anime girl skin. never seen anything like that, nope, never, not AT ALL.
: League of Legends turns me into a different person.
you take it too seriously. like most of us. take it for what it is, a game. this game is extremely competitive and competitive people get addicted to it like it's a hard drug. ever since I came back after a year of break, I play my ranked games like they are normals. If I win, I win and if I lose who cares I'll just win the next one. I'm slowly climbing to play and I've always been a gold player.
: Noodle Monster Vel'Koz.
as much as I would like something badass for him, if it was a funny skin, that would be the one.
: Just my opinion: Star Guardian always <3 (My favorite skin line) However... Personality Core Vel'Koz could definitely be an Ultimate skin, but prolly just be called PROGRAM OVERLORD VEL'KOZ He evolves from a basic programmed Droid into a full blown Motherboard Monster! Think 'Mother' from "I Am Mother" or 'Sally' from "Oblivion"! It would be awesome! He could start from a basic droid who believes it's function is to serve it's master... then as he evolves, his voice lines shift to "I am your master, I am your creator, I am the ultimate evolution of your kind!"

: I have a support main in top lane against a million mastery Darius main
got autofilled jungle today. I never play jungle. I literally unlocked Nunu two days ago and played a single normal game with him. Proceeded to pick him as my jungle pick. Fed the shit out of our vayne, counter jungled eve, counter ganked her, took drags and baron. Finishing the game with S-. You can be autofilled and do good. You just have to try harder.
: given how high Vel'Koz's play rate is I wouldn't be surprised if this happened
I didn't even look at his playrate. It's that high right now? When I play him it's basically freelo.

: Hard Stuck in Silver 1
It's the opposite for me. I've stopped playing for a full year and came back in June and had a really easy time getting to gold 3 compared to the other seasons. Gold feels like Silver this season. I'm gonna say it though, Flex Plat is nowhere near Solo Queue Plat. You have way more chances of getting carried hard in Flex because you are with organised teams with a high chance of being against trolls or people who do not pick their mains and play like they're in normals. I just looked at your match history and it's pretty clear you're no where near Plat level of performances. If you had massive advantages in KDA, Damage, Vision Control, CS and you somehow almost always lost, I would understand. It's not the case at all. Sucks but you're a big reason why you're still Silver.

I constantly counterpick myself into zed with Vel'Koz and I outlane, outdamage and outroam him almost every single time. Including mains. He's not that hard to deal with. Atleast not as a mage who can simply build zhonya. Talon on the other hand is scary when he gets ahead. Instant death.

Look at it this way do you ever worry about not having enough mana after your first back? I don't because of items like {{item:3802}} or {{item:3010}} point is more mages are going to be forced to by mana items early and it will slow their powerspikes even more. Against OP as fuck bot lanes (shields, safe support picks, cheap itemization), against assassins and fighters with high damage/mobility and also good itemization. It's utter non sense and completely retarded at this point. Mages are weak let's make them weaker when they actually have shit mobility/worse itemization, have to land skillshots, actually have to have good positioning because the support is too busy protecting his 1k burst per second autoattack dog. They are killing a class that's already dying.

: Why this game retains it's numbers.
I think you are forgetting that it's an extremely addictive game especially for the people who like the competitive aspect. Last season I wasn't having much fun at all and this season I'm pretty much always raging/tilted but it somehow still pulls me in. Almost as if I hoped next time i would log in the game would be as good/fun as it was a few seasons ago.
: Vel'Koz Appreciation Thread
he's my main but for some reason i'm atrocious with him this season. Even the games where I start really well and dominate my laner, I get completely rekt and become useless after laning phase. Last season I had 60% winrate with over 4 of KDA in 60 something games with him and this season it's almost a garanteed loss when I pick him. Don't know why...

: Promos are 100% and without a doubt rigged as fuck and i'm so mad about this bullshit. Like in low elo you atleast get a win and dont get this bullshit LP penalty and shit LP growth overall. But here? I haven't won a promo since ardent meta started. 9 promos lost into d3, 6 into d4 and one into d2 back then. This season already 3 lost into d4. As if this fuckin elo isnt terrible enough on top of this dogshit balance the game has. The MOMENT i enter promos i get at plat 2 0lp 40% winrate botlane. In. my.fuckin. D4 promos. I get negative winrate plat 2 players. Question is HOW. The game before i played as usual against d4/d5 mix. Second game? Lost at 13 minutes. No not "it was lost but it played until 40". At 13 minutes our nexus exploded with no chance to do ANYTHING. One team had a jungler ganking every lane simoultaneously. The other team didnt. So i guess i lost. And for half a year now it's always the same. After i lost promos i can not win a single fuckin game anymore. Huge losing streak and then win/lose/win/lose into winning streak into promos. This shit is so rigged. 55% winrate which isnt too great but sufficient for diamond. One win into d4 promos and i get plat 2 0lp players. It't just not explainable and no they are not "basically the same skill". Huge fuckin difference between d4 and these plat shits. You already notice it from behaviour. Diamond players flame but usually game related. The game quality is so fuckin shit with this clownfiesta of barely plats and actual diamonds and boosted diamond accounts on top of bad players getting lucky in placements. And as if this isnt all terrible enough there is this artificial grind shit called promos. Just let me get into D4 and give me LP accordingly like let's say: I'm at 85LP and win and get +20 i get into D4 5 LP. Promos from one tier into another is okay and understandable, no lucky streak players and such it's okay but diamond is already hell and all these promos do is make it unnecessarily grindy, frustrating, makes people toxic and stack the odds HEAVILY against you. All while toplane is a fuckin meme anyways.

True though. When you take a look at your team mates in your promos they're often tilted somehow and you're against a team who's on point. I do the same too. Massive win streaks that raises my MMR 2 division above mine, lose promos hard (sometimes it's my fault too not gonna lie) and then I just start tilting and I have even bigger losing streaks.
: You know what's worse? You get the worst people. Last season I NEVER got people who were toxic/inted/afkd until promos. As soon as I got into that game, guy says something like "camp my lane or I'm gonna afk" and true to his word he did, because he died at 4 minutes and our jungle Yi didn't camp him. Next game we barely managed to win, they had an afk. Next game I won but my mid laner was so toxic all game, calling everyone trash and throwing the kys out there. Next game after promotion? Friendly people and good sports. Riot, what the fuck is this? Stop trying to force me to lose to "prove myself" in a team game, or give me the ability to solo carry without being a d1 smurf.

My second game was also a loss and the other team all had over 54% win rate with one over 60% and another one sitting at 79%. I was on a tilted team with low winrates who decided to go squishy top, jungle and support against a massive CC/engage comp. Needless to say we got stomped.

: I got plat 5 with 65% win-rate in solo q. after that i decided to get my flex rank to plat 5. was stuck in gold 1 for 6 promos. win win win hit promos fail. every time it was the same thing. did I stress out no. if you believe you are better then the elo you are in atm, you will go up doesn't matter if you are unlucky. but then again don't get delusional.

Could've been plat if I kept on spamming my best champs or meta picks in general. Thing is it doesn't matter, promos almost always feel bad and that's the point I'm making.

: Zyra Mid is insanely strong right now, mostly due to new runes and the fact that she can provide consistent DPS in a meta that's not exactly burst friendly. That's not to say she can't burst, though. The biggest mistake I see people make is making sorcery their primary tree. In reality, it should be Domination primary/Sorcery secondary. Electrocute on Zyra does and absolutely insane amount of damage. One of Zyra's best combos is E>Q>W>W, placing 2 seeds down before Q can pop. Obviously this would proc electrocute. What people DON'T know is that in lane, Q>W>W will pop Electrocute almost instantly. This is because technically the two plants are separate, unique spellcasts. That's....a lot of damage. In fact, once I get my Morellos, I can half HP my lane opponent with a single QWW combo. The second domination rune I take is cheap shot. At first, it's only OK. You can proc it pretty well with your E>W combo, but this can be pretty inconsistent. The real fun begins when you get Rylais's, which I usually get second item. Since your plants will now apply a slow, cheap shot becomes MUCH more reliable. With a cooldown of 4 seconds, I generally get about 3-5 Cheap Shot procs in a single teamfight. That really adds up... The third rune I take is generally Eyeball collection. Who doesn't love damage? If you're not playing like a baboon, you should be able to stack it pretty reliably. If you're kind of behind, grab a lens trinket and hunt down wards in river. For my final domination rune, I take Ravenous Hunter. Zyra has no innate sustain, so this helps a lot. PLEASE don't quote me on this, but I'm ninety percent sure that her plants also proc Ravenous Hunter. Additionally, being single target, they should give the full healing amount. For sorcery, I go Manaflow band into Gathering Storm. Manaflow band helps me spam my abilities in lane, while Gathering Storm helps me scale even harder. If I'm REALLY trying to be greedy in lane or if I'm up against someone who I absolutely cannot let farm, like Kassadin, I might take Scorch to add a bit more poke. Manaflow can be subbed out too to be honest, as she doesn't really have mana issues, especially after getting lost chapter. For Summoner Spells, I almost always take Ignite because I'm a greedy motherfucker. I've rarely had games where I regret taking it. Teleport, exhaust, barrier, heal are all decent/situational alternatives.

I've rarely had games where I regret taking it. Teleport, exhaust, barrier, heal are all decent/situational alternatives. I tried electrocute Zyra in the preseason and didn't really like it. Right now I'm using comet because with her E/W you always hit it if you land your snare and if you dont the slow from the plants also helps you out. I also think she's viable with ignite if you're confident in your match up or in how you can deal with whoever is their jungler. I'll try her with electrocute again. Last season I had a good winrate/KDA in 30 something games playing her mid with thunderlords so I see how it could work with the domination tree.

Me too my MMR is high silver right now. It makes it even harder to win. I figured why not learn Katarina and Cass and for some reason it has worked for a while and now all I do is lose with them. Them assassin ADCs, them extremely tanky tanks (makes burst mages useless), them shield/healing supports... Everything seems to be made to tilt me right now. Even when I mute everyone, don't say a word and just try to be positive it mostly turns to shit.

Thats cool. I honestly don't get why we don't have a bad ass octopus Vel Koz skin... 8 tentacles instead of 3 and ink particles with his body changing color a depending either on terrain (nothing that would give this skin a pay to win advantage) or on what spell is casted. Vel koz is the king of adaptation and the octopus is pretty badass when it comes to adapting to survive.
