I played a game yesterday where I didn't ban him, because someone on my team had him hovered. Enemy team picked him. We lost.

: The problem is in the gold gain. We all have seen games where he finishes double the gold of anyone else as a support with 20 cs. Or going 0/3 -5 in solo lane and then getting 1-2 kills and then suddenly becoming a god. He comebacks like a yasuo, but without having to expose himself to do dmg, most of what pykes do is to wait for an execute and try to hook. Smarter pykes use the rest of his kit to just run from any danger, not to engage.
I agree. The rest of his kit wouldn't be so annoying if it actually mattered when he gets stomped on in lane, but it doesn't. He just generates free gold out of nowhere and all it takes is one or two kills to get him and his adc caught back up.

: I think you like it because you like it...I know that's circular reasoning, but sometimes there isn't a better explanation other than you like the way it feels to do a certain thing. I've been in IT, specifically support and operations, for my entire career, and it's akin to that, or many other "service" roles - you can be proud of the contributions you can make to an organization (or team), but a lot of times it's thankless. I'm my company's network ops manager, and while I get plenty of thanks and praise my boss and colleagues I work with directly, a lot of people just don't know what I do. When things are working - "What is IT doing?" When things aren't working - "What is IT doing?" > even if I am carrying the whole team This is not good thinking, and ego is something that's very easy for IT folks to fall into as well. People can't do their jobs without the work my team and I put in to keep the network running smoothly, resolve support tickets in a timely fashion, and generally "keep the lights on." In a sense we carry them - they can't do their jobs without us. But the other side of that is we have no job without them. Same thing in League - jungler is just as much a support role as Support, and nobody "carries" an entire game, not even the "carry" positions. The person with the best KDA isn't necessarily carrying. It's very hard to win as 4 people, as it would be very hard for our company to win without all the individual cogs that make up the machine. To be more League-specific, non-junglers don't really understand what the jungler is supposed to do, they think "what can the jungler do for **ME**." That's been the same in every season of League.
I do like it. I do like playing jungle, but maybe it's because i'm not any good at anything else anymore since I've played almost **only** jungle for so long. Any time I play anything else I get absolutely rolled in my ranked games (gold 1), so I just dodge when I get anything besides jungle. Maybe I'm getting tired of the champion I play. Idk.

: Again, Riot? Seriosuly?
I had a friend who was diamond 2 or 3 on his first account, and had already had multiple bans but kept being incredibly toxic. He got permanently banned on that account, so he climbed his smurf to diamond 2 or 3 and was perma'd on that one. So he had another account he got back to diamond 2 or 3 and got banned again. It doesn't matter how bad people are at the game or what people do or say to you. There's a mute button for a reason, and it's up to you to use it. Clearly, you need it, since you've been banned 11 times. You're lucky they even still let you log in with your IP, let alone make another account with it. All it takes is one report for a game to be reviewed by the system. It doesn't matter if everyone in the game reports you, because the system they have in place takes every report seriously, and does not put a weight on how many reports you have against you. Also, the system they use does not issue permanent bans. **All eleven of your permanent bans have been manually reviewed and issued by a staff member at Riot.**

How did I do it? Very simple. It's not some secret mechanical outplay trick or anything like that. Here it is: React to situations logically, not emotionally. I'm serious. This simple trick has won me eighteen out of the last twenty games. If your bot lane dies, don't think "Wow, they're bad." think, "Okay, the enemy team is probably going to try to take dragon now. I should attempt a steal." This game is so. Much. Easier. what a pile of garbage, i've been stuck in silver playing the same way for a lot of time, the matchmaking is simply stupid and its more of a question of luck. how do you explain that there are days that i play the same way same champ and i go 14 wins and 0 loss, then suddenly the matchmaking puts me in team with flamers/toxic/throwers/unskilled/4 levels behind me, and then you start losing games on top of gameS?. matchmaking is pure luck, completely broken.
Matchmaking has some luck involved, but if you have the right mindset and are as good as you believe you are (the people saying "I belong in platinum/diamond" or whatever when they are in silver or bronze) then you should be stomping nearly every single game no matter what.

Likewise, if you are on a winning streak, your next game probably will be extremely hard that it is almost impossible for a player like you to carry it. It's definitely not only based on MMR. not true at all
If only this was actually true. I just lost my 11th game in a row over the course of several days.
: Yeah... I always slow roll into ranked. I accidentally queued for my first ranked game last week and our top laner quit after 3 minutes. This weekend I'll probably jump in to do placements for at least one role. I expect some of the worst is over by now.

I expect some of the worst is over by now. I usually do that as well, but the first game I played actually went decent even though I didn't even get my main champion, so I kept playing games, and now I'm at 1 win 9 losses.
: As someone who also enjoys jg. You need a duo in a lane right now. You cant solo carry with the exp changes unles you counter jg the whole game

You cant solo carry with the exp changes unles you counter jg the whole game This is actually a pretty good idea, and I would do it if I could, but I just don't have any laners to consistently duo with since my schedule is so random. I can't play at a set time at all and I get on very randomly.
