She needs to be disabled until Riot can figure out how to balance her. It's completely broken. Worst new champ I've ever seen in years and years of League.... **It feels like with Senna, Riot just wants everyone to _"Pay to Win"_ now in ranked**

: > Yasuo vs a Bronze I Syndra > I'll let you all take a second to guess who went 17/0 Syndra but you made the fatal mistake of letting Yasuo hit his 0/10 powerspike
Syndra got destroyed as 99% of bronze matches would go vs a Gold elo player.... Yasuo dominated midlane from 0:01. Did you even read my OP? I even gave a pretty strong hint who won.... Champ name starts with "Y"...… Also, Yasuo was on MY team. I tried my hardest to leave which side he was on out of the conversation since it is irrelvant to the point. You guessed wrong and I made no "fatal mistakes". Sorry. I felt super bad for the other team and it wasn't fun for anyone. I saw the reason why after the game which motivated me to make this post after seeing many similar games and outcomes.... I literally just finished a game with a Silver ADC on our team of Golds.... Guess who fed like a fat kid and lost us the game? Yep. Our Silver ADC that could not stop feeding. I can't play for him sadly. The point, the matchmaking system is not accurate enough and should be matching players with more similar elo and less difference in skill level.... It's happening TOO OFTEN and the skill difference is TOO HIGH.. Those combined are what the big issue is....

: I went over your history and cant find your {{champion:157}} {{champion:134}} game your talking about. Generally what you want to check for is, High uncertainty then Duo. High uncertainty is accounts with low # of games. Ranks on accounts like that are frequently inaccurate. Duo is duoing. Its a pretty wide range. For example, Silver Tier: Can only queue with Iron, Bronze, Silver, and Gold Tier players. Those two things tend to generate the majority of mismatched ranks. Link me the game if you want me to check it.
Could have been Yasuo vs Kassadin and maybe he went 16/0, I was recalling from memory. It was more the point I was trying to make about how lopsided the game was and always would be with a Midlane Gold vs a Midlane Bronze...…. Kudos to you for looking. I couldn't even be bothered since I was only making a point and the 100% factual stats of the match were irrelevant.
: Are we talking about flex or regular Solo Q here?
: Isn't it about the same anyway? Bronze 1 VS Gold 4 would be the equivalent of old Silver V - Silver 1.

Bronze 1 VS Gold 4 would be the equivalent of old Silver V - Silver 1. You think Bronze I an Gold 4 are equal skill levels? Go watch some youtube videos on Gold vs Bronze then come back.

I wish Riot paid me. Riot, can you pay me please if you're reading this? At least gift me some free RP to my account?

I don't know what you're arguing if you agree with me. Go back and read my OP, that was the general idea. There are already natural incentives to be a team player which are fairly obvious. > Probably because people that flame are less likely to work with their team, so this point is the same as the first > Another great no point argument you make here which is basically in agreement with my OP. > So here we've got one player that reformed to prove it works.

SURPRISE! I change my behaviour to get better rewards. I'm sure many others feel the same way. It's that surprising to you that some people are incentivised and motivated in other ways than you and care/want other things? lulz... > Not an inherently good thing.

Especially since the OP of this entire thread was complaining about not enough changes/updates.... lol. Please move along troll. :-)
: I hate these new support items
I'd like to see a wider variety of support items... Not just 1 or the other depending on if you are AD or AP.... 2 or 3 options for AD or AP would be nice....

Every single promo series i get these players. I had to get to my promos to Silver fucking 2 3 times whoch is a joke in itself seeing how bad players are at this elo. Even when i finally managed to win i still had to carry players that started 0/4 and 1/5. Getting to promos is really easy but in those promotional games you get the worst of the shit that elo has to offer. > > And this is not only a thing for me. I've played a promo game with one of my friends recently and had been spectating his promos. He gets the exact same shit. Teammates that feed their ass off. There is just no way that it is pure luck that we get terrible teammates a few times in ranked but when it's promos everyone that is not your premade is likely gonna be absolutely useless. > > How is this a fair way to balance things? > "Got to your promos easily? Gaining LP with winning streaks? That must mean you are better than the elo that you are currently! Here are these feeders so you can't actualy advance in rank and have to suffer alittle more!" > > Fucking thank you mate. Thanks > > If you want promos to be harder to beat give me harder opponents. Not worse teammates. I can beat better opponents than usual or lose to them and still feel like it was a fair and fun game. I can't do shit about r%%%%%s on my team and the frustration this system gives me though. This. Last game of Promos... Mid Lane Syndra fed 2 early kill to Kat... "Syndra, sit under the turret, don't even farm, just STOP feeding Kat. Syndra proceeds to feed 5 more kills to Kat in a row.... smh….

: Games are worse because Riot promotes selfishness as their business strategy.
I disagree. I believe Riot promotes team work. Teams that work together out on the rift, win more often. Proven. Teams that flame less, win more. Proven. Rewards are in place for those that follow the "summoners code" (incentive to play fair, nicely and engage in teamwork). Toxic behaviour and attitudes are punished to prevent bad behaviour. I even had my first account banned (reformed player here as living proof the system works). Riot gives you free champs/skins just for being a good team mate and following the summoners code! As for game content or updates. We are getting new champs all the time. Changes to the gameplay and the rift are coming down every season. I love the new Dragon changes that affect the physical map itself. You DO NOT need to spend a single $1 on this game! I have a few accounts where I have spent $0 and have all champs and MANY limited edition/rare skins. Be positive and a good team mate. You will be rewarded in many ways. Can we lock this thread?
: You seem to be focusing on a lot of the proper stuff. At the core, support is a role designed to best set up and allow your teamates to come out on top. **How do you do that?** 1. Vision control 2. Map Awareness 3. Understanding how your champions mechanics interact with the opposing teams mechanics 4. Macro play (i.e. objective priority/control, wave management, optimal pathing) 5. Micro play (i.e. individual skill in a dozen different fields) 6. Positive mental attitude These things all lace together and lean on each other. Explaining how they all did would be a novel, so I'll trust you to find the connections and how each point impacts the others. Keep working on **ONE** thing at a time! I'm currently working on making sure my carry stays alive. Other things may suffer because of it, but if I accomplished that one thing, then I consider that a success. The previous thing I worked on was vision control. I worked on that for a month and within that short time of focus I went from an average of 1.5 vision score per minute to 2.5 - 3 vision score per minute. Don't give up. Don't give in to frustration. Use mistakes as learning opportunities. Use triumphs as a point of reference of what works and find ways to make those triumphs even stronger. Identify weaknesses, improve them. Identify triumphs, enhance them. You can make it to plat next season. :)
Thank you so much, I will take all of that information in and add it to my gameplay. See you out on the Rift :-)

: A good general checklist to follow when roaming: - You and the ADC just backed - You just got mobis / pen boots - You have Flash and Ignite - You have a Sweeper or Pink - Target opponent doesnt have Flash - Target opponent isn't mobile - You or ally have CC If most of these are true, its a golden opportunity to roam. You dont have to have all these boxes checked off, but the more of them that are checked, the higher the % of success your play will have.

Thank you, I literally wrote this down on a piece of paper and taped it beside me to read before I start each game. Appreciate the advice!

: Honestly. You should have just dodged that game. You knew he didn't have smite, and yet you still didn't do anything. -3 lp is way better than -19 lp.
