Crappity crap. Any advice on how to keep her behind? I've had 0/4 Katarinas snatch seven kills just from roaming with her jungler. Then I'd take mid turret and grab dragon/a kill in a lane she's not roaming in, but by then the entire game has become a shit storm.

"OMG why didn't you help me!" The jungler says, as he gets collapsed on at enemy's red buff by three people despite numerous MIA pings, and a dead top laner.

Can't speak for high elo, but in low elo 99% of the time Kat only gets fed because teammates ignore my pings. I can't follow every single roam, especially when their jungler is roaming with Kat to gank bot, and our own jungler is nowhere near.

: Why are Smurfs allowed?
Not to trivialize your issue, but... 1. Gold and silver really isn't that much of a jump, and Riot seems to often be throwing S3s~S1s in low to mid gold games. 2. According to https://www.leagueofgraphs.com/rankings/rank-distribution, only around 16% of the playerbase is plat+. 3. The odds that every single player of this 16% has a smurf account that they frequently rank on is next to zero. 4. Being generous here and assuming half of these players are constantly, 24/7 ranking on a smurf, that's a whopping 8% of the playerbase. 5. You'd have to be extremely (un)lucky to snipe one of these players as your opposing laner for 40 games in a row. Especially without a smurf on your team to even out the odds. 6. Smurfs rank up much faster than regular players. It is incredibly difficult for a diamond smurf to remain hardstuck low silver. That being said, smurfs are very irritating, and definitely unbalance the game.

: Why are "boosted" teammates in my games? How are they even the same rank?
Skill level in silver is really varied. Either your teammates are smurfs, average players, or bad players. The same goes for the enemy team. So if your average teammates are against smurfs, you're fucked. If you have smurfs against average players, they're fucked. It's really a coinflip.

: How come players can run it down without getting banned?
I've only done it once in recent memory, because I was in a five man queue and we misjudged the timing for a scrim. Even that was risky, because we could still get banned for it, if we just got reported by one person.
: Here's the reasoning: Yuumi is REALLY strong in pro but not so strong at lower ELOs. Since she meets their criteria for a nerf based off of her pro presence, she needs a nerf. But they don't want to hit her in ways that make low-skill Yuumis weaker. So they took a look at the difference between a really good Yuumi and a mediocre Yuumi... and yup! You guessed it. The main difference is that top tier Yuumis get full value out of their passive, while mediocre Yuumis don't. So.... by reducing the power of the passive, they can make top tier Yuumis a bit weaker without having a huge impact on the less skilled ones.

Uhm, that's basically Ancient Coin but worse isn't it? Spell Thief was made for poke supports but it's so good for general use that pretty much everyone uses it.
Nope. The equivalent of pinks, or scout traps, were really busted. Passive pinks+additional slot for pinks would also be great, especially against peeps like Evelynn. -x% damage doesn't mean your early game is shit; % doesn't matter when you only have 9 AP, it starts only when you start scaling. This way, people are less tempted to buy AP items later on, and stick with traditional support items.
: People getting away with attacking special needs players.
A study showed that men on the autism spectrum are actually more likely to resort to playing video games than neurotypical men. As a result, keep in mind the flamers you've encountered might also just be fellow autistics, and that you should extend the same courtesies to them as you'd expect to be extended to you...or just mute them. As a fellow autist and someone who has some other mental issues, I get that people with these disabilities might be more aggressive. I've seen it in the special ed room. Yes, some "healthy minded" students do sometimes try to provoke us. But that doesn't give us a reason to respond in kind. If they want to get us in trouble, or to get a response, why would you give it to them? Especially in a video game where you can ignore their messages? I get that with ODD it affects you a bit differently, so maybe you could play with someone hovering over your shoulder reminding you to mute, or doing it for you? Riot processes reports because the people who flamed DIDN'T ignore and move on. They broke the ground rules set for them. If you can't follow them, because of a mental illness, no worries. There are guides out here on how to disable your keyboard while playing. It's also incredibly difficult for these "normies" to know that you have a mental illness just based on your playstyle. Hell, most of my fellow autist friends are plat/diamond/master.

Kobrack (NA)
: I'm talking about a general matter. And it doesn't matter where the wintrading occurs, its happening when it should not. And the majority playerbase IS there, which is why of the millions of players that are queuing up to play, half are bound to quit. Nobody wants to play with a team that's going to throw because they have no idea how to hold a lead, pursue the objectives, nor deal with the stress they throw at each other. The whole point of this post is to show why this game is not worth playing. You've spent 3 seasons getting to gold, as I can clearly see. It doesn't matter how long you spend playing or how much you spend, because this game will never be fun.
Your post is subjective. I think LoL is fun. I play it for entertainment, not to climb to challenger and make millions whooping other peoples' asses. I'm not good at the game. I can't climb for shit, and yes, I do occasionally get toxic teammates. But there are things that make this game fun, and worth playing for me. For example, not everyone is toxic. I just lost a game where jungle went 1/13, and yet, I still had lots of fun. Our Yuumi was very great and positive, and lifted up the atmosphere of the game, and we even had a mini comeback near the end. While there are shitty LoL players, I have also met plenty of kind ones that make this community one worth hanging out around. Just like in sports, you don't have to be a pro, or have pro teammates to enjoy your activity. You don't always win, and it's unrealistic to always expect to win. And yes, people will cheat in video games, just like in any other aspect of life. I understand you didn't have a good experience with League, and your teammates have been less than stellar in your eyes. That's fine too, but I don't agree with how you summed up the report system. You will, under no circumstances get banned, no matter how many teammates report you if you are not behaving in a toxic manner. Doesn't matter if that guy was toxic first, there are no passes for responding back rudely.

: DO NOT PLAY LEAGUE OF LEGENDS
I have never seen any wintraders in silver, which appears to be the rank you are atm. The majority of the playerbase is in there. With close to one million people queueing up at any given time, the odds of sniping someone to win trade in our elo are way too low.

What if support items got another change? For example, if you buy spellthief's, you get -x% damage, but in return, you get some form of a buff; more gold, or maybe a passive control ward generator+slot to hold it? For example, last time I played VG, which is basically LoL for phones, supports almost never built damage simply because support items were actually strong, and easy to use, even for auto-filled people. Instead of doing ass loads of damage, you get vision items that passively reload without you doing anything, more beneficial and impactful utility items. Even if you played a poke support, you wouldn't be fucking up someone's entire HP bar, because of your utility build.

Man, this is not gonna get a lot of love, but I gotta say this; Neeko is fine. She's sitting at a healthy 50% winrate. Her E starts off slowly. They already nerfed her ult so it doesn't slow. Her late game isn't that great, on account of her range. She has to put herself on the line in teamfights to land the AOE ult, and if she uses Zhonya's, she can't move, meaning you can easily move out of range.
mack9112 (NA)
: From my understanding she is pretty weak at the moment.
: Any player who baits someone into getting banned is reportable. This is a smaller-scale version but I assume it's held to the same standard. For example, I've seen people on the boards who get their ban repealed because a player in their game says "say kys or I'll int" or something along those lines, and the player says it, potentially not knowing it's an instant ban trigger word and they get banned. Riot unbans the victim and bans the person baiting. That's an extreme example but it kinda works for what happened in your game.
See, I'm worried the automated system won't pick up on these types of things, especially when it's a sarcastic troll who sounds friendly.

: Why the new mordekaiser should always be a ban
That would literally be the most busted thing ever. A 5v1? The poor guy would have no chance. See, with your proposed change, doing well would be the most punishing thing ever; Say your Renekton is fed. The guy has a 500 gold bounty, against a Morde who is feeding his ass off. Morde ults Renekton at the start of a team fight. Normally, Renekton would punish the fuck out of Morde for that mistake, but this instantly allows the entire enemy team to whale on Renekton with no way for Renekton's team to help him out. If Morde keeps doing this, he can instantly remove the laner he fed from having any impact in the game, with little to no counterplay, or skill. The 1v1 mechanic on Morde's ult is to keep it fair; if Morde gets a portion of his fed ass enemy's stats, he shouldn't also be able to force them into fighting a 1v5, where it'd be easy to take out his bounty.

1. If a friend is bitching at you for a video game over factors you can't control, ditch them ASAP. 2. You saved people from unpleasant games by reporting him. If game went unflagged, he might not have been punished until much later, assuming he didn't say a zero tolerance phrase. 3. Sexism, body shaming and putting down someone else's confidence is never okay. 4. I once had a friend who posted that he wanted to shoot someone on social media. Did I snitch? Yes. While snitches get bad reputations, sometimes you just gotta do it if someone is crossing a line.
