Yeah I wonder why I've stopped spending money in this game after all of those season 4 jackasses inting my games.

: Why Do Simple Gameplay Concepts Seem Completely Lost On People?
I've had someone ask in post game lobby remake "Who d/ced?" There was only one person without items in a screen that showed them. They were motherfucking asking to tell them an answer that was clearly posted in front of their screen that everyone saw. These are the people who polluted ranked.

I guess I have to get masters in tft to counter shittalk the bronze diamonds in my silver games so I can dab on them hard
: Reminder: Unlock all champions for ARAM
I've played Ziggs to a perfect game in ARAM without having to buy while still carrying the team. I can only imagine a team of 5 ARAM-"pro" accounts that actually buy items being even worse.
: Is Lux really that bad?
Lux is generally used as a crutch so people end up being ego driven idiots that go insane if they don't have kills to steal from their team. Outside of beating people who are bad Lux offers little if their Q misses as support and laning against a real opponent is harder than a lot of other champs.

What you're saying here is that people would magically and without any information just ***know*** what Nubrac was doing, which is complete bs in and of itself. If you actually bothered to watch the game from NB3's perspective, you'd ***know*** that he had ***NO IDEA WHATSOEVER*** who Nubrac actually was, and therefore couldn't possibly know about his off-meta strategy as "support" Teemo. This entire premise of "oh, they should just know" is so ridiculously flawed, and if all you're going to do is say stupid shit like "oh, it should just magically be this particular way because that's what I believe" then there's no reason to continue discussing this with you. Give me the evidence that proves ***ANYONE*** on Nubrac's team knew his plan when that match started.
So where's the jungler's plan for route? So where's the mid's plan to roam? So where's the adc's permission to play a codependent needy ass type of marksmen without a duo? Nubrac's strat was already known before the match I'm not going to care about giving a lazy person shit if their facts aren't straight.
C0l0urless (EUNE)
: Even if that was the case they would still have a lot of knowledge of their main role and would be aware of any viable off meta picks there. You can't even say they aren't aware of viable alternate playstyles, since the players in those elos discovered funneling.
I don't know where the you got the whole playing role enough gives you** magical awareness** of offmeta picks there, but that doesn't even make any sense

No one in a team can be expected to take part in an unknown plan, and so communication is an ***essential*** aspect to the success of any plan, and in particular plans that break from the norm, which is what Nubrac was using. The match with NB3 was a prime example of this, as he had given his team no information to work with, and simply did his own thing without letting his team in on what was happening. At the very least, they could have *tried* to adapt if he had actually communicated, instead of being left in the dark and not having the opportunity to actually work around the *highly abnormal* strategy (it doesn't fall under "roaming" because he didn't leave the mid lane, and it's not simply "level 1 harass" because it continued through the *entire* match). > also the streamer thing is a fallacy made by NB3 The information about Nubrac performing the "strategy" in matches with streamers came ***DIRECTLY*** from Riot, which you can see in the statement by RiotWookieCookie on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/c0m449/nightblue3_gets_his_teammate_banned_for_playing/er61hxj/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x
yeah idk what drugs you're on but eh most people pick champ and do whatever they want in solo queue anyway like invasions. secondly that is pretty much bullshit since everyone already knew about what he was doing so magical bullshit right there. there is no such thing as 'norm' are you trying to actually say meta? it's not up to the offmeta person to teach people about the game's other strats.

: I mean, him losing more games than he is winning is the consequence of playing a strat that doesn't work. Just like it is for any other person. You don't get banned for playing a strat that doesn't work, only if you do so maliciously.
if people are actively afking on him for the strat then that 47% wr is tampered with and would be higher if not for those people 48%-52% is marginally average that's not really losing with the strat

being his main, losing a bunch of games when he was lower mmr in trying to experiment, then getting higher isn't exclusive but keep trying bruh post on your main account coward
: nubrac got to d4 (FROM GRANDMASTER) with 49% win rate and 47% win rate on teemo.
most of those games were in a lower division before he even hit higher WR. meaning he played enough games to solve teemo to climb to high elo. it's not uncommon that new strats that end up in higher elo are polished in lower mmr, it just happens to be on the same person/account/season. the offmeta wars have begun long before this with support singed, but whatever just keep being toxic metaslaves i guess
: And how do they actually stop smurfs in any realistic way that doesn't fucking kill the game?
do you really think a bought 30-60lvl account needs to be in a ranked game
Anatera (NA)
: I don't know how anyone can play ranked. The game is so hilarious unfair and unbalanced, that even when you're winning it doesn't feel right.
Riot Games doesn't care about the quality of ranked matches, but it does care for mass censorship and speaking in place of players to spout their SJW report system agenda. All they have accomplished is griefing the shit out of every regular honest queue player that genuinely wants to climb by inserting even more new accounts, griefers, and bought accounts into the queue. What did they think they could accomplish by letting people into ranked SR that have a total of 3 SR games and the rest ARAM into the queue? They're chat restricting us because we think there's something fucked up about our game for the 100th time? Wow thanks Riot for calling me toxic when there's legitimately something in game to talk about. Since when did League need to tell people how to talk? All league players wanted was just to keep people from saying the N word and spamming homophobic slurs ::thinking::
Kendren1 (NA)
: IDK how you could play any other mode of ranked at all. Norms are pointless, and flex q quality is only high enough to be worth a warmup for mechanics. While ranked quality might be at an all time low, its still the only mode that even tries to balance out the skill levels of the players.

: Yeah, like my last loss. Guy bans Akali when i have 70% winrate on her, proceed to int all early game on Elise and gets outjungled by a Fiddlestick. I didn't even int on purpose but he got the Yasuo special. People should just look at themselves with their 50% winrate champions instead of opgg every player in the lobby. Legit insecure players
I mean Akali and Yasuo are notoriously hate ban bait so you really shouldn't be surprised. But it is stupid that the client doesn't give any information at champion select and selecting ONE champion makes no sense whatsoever. How is that informative if the enemy bans it and the team has no idea what you play or the WR?
: Well if it's normals, I'd argue against that. If it's Ranked, I think that gets the water a little muddier.
Half of the Sylas, Akali, Ryze, and Pantheon bans are probably also to keep people on their team from playing them. I t might be viable in low elo to ban any teammate champion with a stat at 48% WR or below (especially Sylas / Ryze, then ban anything common 52% or above that isn't niche (aka regular bans). If people wouldn't immediately throw a fit and troll, that is.

power farming jg all game as a gank jungler will never be viable and should not be viable trade your role or dodge imo maybe rito shouldnt have punished junglers for saying anything in jungler speak while nubs flame them out every game they lose lane since no jungle really wants to deal with the sjw Olympics season 8/9 report system while being unable to really talk anyway anyway feel free to spam rito on preventing everyone from getting autofilled jungle as an option

Literally throwing the game at champion select despite people telling you to not go AP: Not bannable. Winning the game with an offmeta and losing because your teammates AFKed because people hate Teemo players: Bannable?
: I will say that for me, I try to do this. I play every role _except_ for jungle, but the game likes auto filling me there. When I get in-game, (maybe not in norms, but always in ranked) I'll tell them that I got autofilled and ask if I could switch with someone. However, its only prob like 1 in every 3 times that I ask that people actually trade roles with me, generally also being bitchy and saying something along the lines of "If you're playing ranked, you should be able to play every role." (Which is a bit hypocritical since most of them are one tricks but...) I know how to actually jungle, but I don't have the mental fortitude to deal with the stress of every laner expecting you to win their lane for them. I rather have someone that knows what they're doing and able to take flak play the role, because they'll more than likely would do a better job than I would. TL;DR: It's not that we don't try, its that most of the community doesn't care.
fake jgs ends up feeding enemy lane counters for free solo then ghosting the lane the rest of the game while calling to report the lane later its really annoying

That's not really true. Rito just cycles the toxic players into the new one, creating new players that take up their behavior patterns.

: This is unacceptable. Edit: What I mean by "This is unacceptable" is not only NB3 doing this kind of stuff to others, but also Riot endorsing and actively supporting him as a streamer. This is the same problem with Tyler1, where Riot is too cowardly to pull the plug on prime examples of toxicity because they want as much publicity as they can get. By actively endorsing these kind of streamers, Riot is also actively ENCOURAGING players to act like this in their games. If you're ever wondering why everyone is so toxic in League, you have one reason right here.

: An easier fix is to have provisional games not impact teammates as highly as the player in provisional (which most systems already do). And to track players who experienced a provisional player to alternate Provisionals each time they intersect by team. Bit harder... but if your willing to make a mismatch between teams for some 10-20 MMR should be viable... unless duoing is involved.
