: i think because u got s on leona?
Wait what, lol? It might just be a visual bug so I'm not sure. I'm not even sure if we're supposed to get 100 xp per win or 100 bonus xp.

: Over the last two months I have climbed from b1 to nearly g5 (in promos). All I did was learn how to play 2 champs and play only those champs. I have a 72% win rate on orianna over 53 games. Thats a lot of climbing. If you are good mechanically, which you can learn in aram, you should be able to stomp silvers with her. They always overextend and are super easy to gank. I usually just farm and poke until I finish ludens. Ludens gives ori a surprisingly large amount of damage. After than I just stomp lane and roam. Late game, you can pretty much 1 shot a back line, just position where they wont blow you up. Won teamfights = barons and towers = won games. Some diamond douchedick will probably try to argue with me, but I literally just did it using this strat so goml :p

: Maybe it’s because I’ve played Galio since the rework came out but I feel he telegraphs everything. With that being said I’m sure they will nerf him. But everyone has a weakness.
His poke is really annoying and he has better waveclear. His teamfight and lockdown potential is insane. He and Lissandra keeps pushing out other options in the midlane.

We all know Irelia is busted, but that doesn't make it okay. That's why the balance team exists.
: He's slow, and is pretty badly beaten by AD. Maybe stop playing mages vs him. If he taunts you and you're playing a champion that gets all their damage from abilities, then yeah, you're getting bodied and not even trading.

: Tank? People play Galio as a tank? Last I checked everyone plays him as a goddamn burst mage.
He has 3 forms of CC and is basically invulnerable to magic damage. He might as well be a tank and a burst mage at the same time.

: then you didnt read what I said
You're actually r%%%%%ed. You state Conqueror was a problem because it did too much damage to everyone, but bring up examples of champions to try and prove your point while forgetting that those champions rarely use Conqueror. What the hell did I not read?
: Riot cant tell the difference between a tank buster and an everyone buster Conq was bust to kill tanks which it doesn but also one shot squishes making it not a tank buster rune and making it an everyone buster rune {{champion:145}} was made to be good at killing tanks and to no surprise she does but if she also fights a squishy they are going to get one shot with very little counter play {{champion:67}} used to have this issue but me personally have not been getting one shot by vaynes lately I dont see her that often so maybe you guys have idk {{champion:236}} builds {{item:3153}} {{item:3071}} both antitank items yet somehow hes one shotting everybody whos not a tank
Lucian and Kai'sa don't use Conqueror at all so I don't understand your point using those examples there.

: Hey everyone, We've received a few reports of Critical Errors and I'm working with my colleagues to investigate this further. When you get this error, please generate the dump file that the Critical Error message requests; afterwards please reach out to us through the Support Site and provide the dump files to us. Make sure to mention when and where it happens (eg. only the first game you play, only in ARAMs, just started with Patch 8.21, etc.) You can create a Support Ticket here: https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
I've been getting a lot of Leaverbusters because of this. Is there any way of a temporary fix on this problem for once? The freezing and the in-game client has been crashing just randomly no matter what queue (Ranked Solo, Twisted Treeline, ARAM, and Normal Blind).
: Not going to help at all, but figured I'd share. in my match history about 6-7 games back theres a teemo that was soft inting.. going 0-4 at 3 minutes, 0-8 at 14 minutes, refusing to ff at 15 minutes, and ending the game.. 1-10? The whole time saying things like "Oh shucks" and "whoops" whenever he died. I reported him, and relogged into League, and almost immediately got the popup saying "A recent report of yours was validated, and a punishment was issued." Being that Teemo is the only person I reported, and he wasn't being toxic in chat, I think its fair to assume that they punished him for soft inting. He had a few other questionable games on his match history. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- tl;dr I used to think they didnt punish, but I just got the notification that someone I reported for soft inting was punished.
That's actually awesome. Glad to hear justice being served! Just a couple of questions though, do you think your situation is rare? Do you think certain games should be instantly punishable if enough evidence is present? Do you think that writing additional information along with checking the boxes actually help?

You know, from what i've seen in this board and from my personal games, most of the time, it's the flamer who gives "critique" that are a complete dick about it. Besides, not doing what you or the team want is not a punishable offense. You are not any smarter than the people in the same MMR as you.
Like I said, they have a right to surrender, but they shouldn't have a right to just completely give up the game and intentionally throw. The amount of ranked games I've lost because people just want to not play it out and throw completely winnable and favorable games is extremely sad. Yeah you'll occasionally get a troll or two in 1 out of 20 games or so, but this actually occurs a lot more often than you think. For some reason, intentional throws are somehow "hard to spot". You can have a Zac just E into the middle of the team even though he didn't wait for his 3 other teammates despite repeated pings and then afterwards he says "Finally game ends" as he proceeds to lose the teamfight, but that apparently isn't bannable or punishable because they just get away with it and I have to move on to the next game no matter how upsetting that is. I understand, but there is room to work on solutions and I guess a potential one would be to look over multiple games to see if they are doing that. That way I guess they can tell the difference between bad games and repeated trolling. > [{quoted}](name=Bijeesny,realm=EUNE,application-id=ZGEFLEUQ,discussion-id=HyTnFEuG,comment-id=000000010001,timestamp=2018-09-10T16:37:56.237+0000) > > Let's not forget about the guy who got exposed couple of moths ago for griefing. Tantram himself explained what that guy did while saying he gathered over 500 reports in a little over a month. > The fact nothing has been done to prevent cases like those are beyond me. Multiple videos are on youtube about people with obvious int'ing and it takes only 1 game to reach the front page of reddit for them to finally get banned even though there were at least 15 other games in int'ed (in a row too). If it's that bad for obvious cases, imagine how much worse it can get with something that's much more subtle and to a smaller degree. What I've also seen is that the toxic player is usually the guy who's fed so they have somewhat of an idea how to play the game in comparison to people that they're flaming/playing badly. I'm not saying I do support toxic players, I'm just saying that if someone is playing better than you and actually try to help you and unite the team/provide a strategy, then you should actually listen instead of going deaf and saying "Whoops! My bad, team! I screwed over the game. At least we can get out of this game." In my opinion, those kinds of players are just as bad to play with on your team as the toxic player.

Intentionally feeding, buying six tears or even anything minor like buying runaans, ie, and the two components of shiv/rfc then selling those items to buy rageblade and stormrazor, effectively putting yourself an item behind should be punishable.

There's no rules that say you have to communicate with your team.
Forcing people to actually try is. Intentionally throwing the game is punishable, but people who do intentionally throw go largely unpunished. Repeated offenses of doing some minor such as that should be bannable because you can't just buy the wrong items 8 games in a row and sell them to put yourself an item behind. The last part is what I don't fucking understand. Why the hell is lack of communication not bannable and even encouraged? I get it, some players should just be muted. They're just too toxic. However, that doesn't mean you should block off all communication because someone told you to change something about what you're doing. It's like players don't actually know what the difference between constructive criticism and flaming is.

: What's wrong with trying to surrender repeatedly??? It's on a cooldown timer. Not like you can spam it incessantly few seconds. Good lucking trying to prove people putting themselves behind INTENTIONALLY vs just playing badly. Feeding free kills already being handled by feederbuster. Being a cheeky dick by saying "no u" to any UNSOLICITED critique is not a punishable offense.

: What *can* they do? The answer, before you and try and claim there is one, is **nothing**. If it is indistinguishable from bad play, you can’t claim it’s “soft inting” just because you’re unhappy. If it’s indistinguishable from bad play, then it cannot be punished.
There should be ways to distinguish a bad game from soft-inting. For example, trying to repeatedly ff and having a negative attitude and outlook towards the game while refusing to have any hope or at least give a sign that they are trying and willing work as a team, then they should be punished. In addition, another example could be when they refuse to communicate with their team and not listen to pings/advice or give any constructive and beneficial advice, then they should be punished. This is a team game and you have to work together with your teammates to win.
Aneirin (OCE)
: So using your example, you'd make selling items and trying to surrender while having a bad score a bannable offence. This would generate a large number of people falsely getting banned to catch out a couple of people intentionally throwing the game. Is that justice?
Trying to surrender repeatedly, putting yourself intentionally behind, and trying to help the enemy team by feeding free kills in addition to being a complete, cheeky dick by saying "no u" to any critique should be bannable. Addressing your second point, I believe repeated and consistent reports should do the trick.
: you're looking for a quick fix for a very complex problem for example what if someone is "soft inting" but doesn't say a word all game long, how is a system, or even a person supposed to know if it's inting or poor decisions or bad game?
I don't have any suggestions either, it's just that I want to see Riot try to do something about a major issue in solo queue and at least acknowledge that it's present and it should be fixed.
: People who soft int are doing it because they want attention. Do not give them attention (I.E. criticism or flaming) for their behavior, and they will eventually give up. This is just one reason Riot bans people for chat toxicity, because it feeds the behavior of trolls who are harder to detect. You can obviously tell when one of your teammates is soft-inging, and chances are that they won't listen if you talk to them anyway. So save yourself the time and trouble of typing in chat, and ignore them. They wouldn't have listened anyways, and if they are trolling then by not saying anything you're not rewarding them for their behavior.
I agree with you wholeheartedly, but essentially it feels like complete crap with you need to make people give up at trying to give up. Punishing people for toxicity and bad behavior towards those people who soft int repeatedly and consistently just encourages soft-inting and not putting in effort. Honestly, in my opinion, punishments should be equal for both the flamer and the soft-inter.
Scuttle (NA)
: Okay if you can find a way that 100% catches soft inters and is never a false positive, give it to riot. What you think is soft inting could be someone trying their best. You can't see inside their head. And not following someone's instructions, not grouping, etc, are NOT considered trolling. People may play the game how they want.
I don't have that many suggestions, but I want to see Riot to try and at least let the community know that they are trying to get something done about soft-inting and how it affects solo queue greatly. I agree that people should play how they want to, but I think there should be a line drawn, especially when they ruin the fun for everyone else.

I can tell you need to learn how to actually play midlane properly because if you think you can't push the lane with auto attacks, then you're hopeless. > I know exactly how to play midlane and how to play Malz. Please stop presenting your argument based on my gameplay, which you have neither seen to played alongside, and instead try looking at what he as a champion DOES in a team. Malzahar is NOT a carry any longer. This doesn't mean he isn't useful to his team, this doesn't mean he can't "push a wave", this doesn't mean he cannot WIN games. It is the method with which he does this that has changed; from that of a carry to that of a support. Malzahar's role in the game currently is to be a "safe" midlaner and scale. Once he hits 6 his role is to feed kills to his teammates (preferably the CARRIES) to give other lanes an advantage. In a teamfight his job is to ult a CARRY on the enemy team to prevent their damage which his teams CARRIES blow them, and the rest of their team, up. His role USED to be getting the opposing midlaner behind by being an oppressive fuck. Hitting 6 was like saying "Now I have a way to stop you running away" rather then "now I can finally do something!". Team fighting was all about getting malefic visions on an enemy carry and then throwing out your 2 voidlings, who then became 6, and watching them run like hell while the other back liners helped them and then you ult the frontline tank and you team destroys them. It used to be putting a Null Zone in the middle of their front line and getting a voidling to scale before sending him in to rip them a new one. He USED to be a carry, and while for someone who has just 2k mastery in this champion your grasp on his workings, role and history is understandably lacking, your inability to accept you are talking out of your ass is both frustrating and arrogant. Next time try playing the champion enough to learn them before making accusations about someones ability to play them. Hell at least watching so video's of what the champion used to be like. Not wasting my time on you again so enjoy the last word.
Can you explain why you are so delusional? "Getting others ahead"? Do you realize that this is a team game and control mages thrive in 5 vs 5 environments through the effectiveness of their zoning. You literally said it yourself, "acontrol mage is a carry mage that uses control instead of outright burst to destroy their enemies" while refusing to acknowledge that the champions you listed, especially Malzahar and Anivia, use control and not burst damage to win teamfights. How about you accept the fact that I'm a better player and I know what I'm talking about much more than you do? What you are suggesting is that Malzahar should be an assassin in lane and have the same level of teamfighting that he had before. He is still able to get his E on the enemy carries and follow up with damage from his Q and W. You can still cast your ultimate on their frontline and completely demolish them. People like you are the reason why we can't have proper balance in this game because you just want everything for yourself and you refuse to learn how to play the game. I actually don't understand what your argument is, but I do understand what you're trying to accomplish. You want your champion to be ridiculously broken, dealing the kind of sustained damage that ADC's could dish out pre patch 8.11, and you want him to be the control monster that he is. Please get psychiatric help because it's obvious that you desperately need it. Try and learn the game and see how absurd you're being.
: Thoughts on Frustrating Abilities: Unbreakable & Windwall
Yasuo is already a difficult enough champion to play, why are we making it harder? He's not that bad to play against and the only reason why it's frustrating is because people just forget to take into account an ability that's a core part of Yasuo's kit.

Thank you for your concern though. The "push with his W" was a good point that you will learn doesn't really work out early against anyone competent but I can see you are relatively new to Malz so don't worry. The point I was making with this post was that control mages have become more support midlaners rather than carries. Malzahar is the poster boy for this. Is he viable? Yes. Is he a Carry? No.
He can carry through raw macro easily with his ability to pick out a member with his R and his raw damage late game. You can still push easily with Q and auto'ing the wave. I can tell you need to learn how to actually play midlane properly because if you think you can't push the lane with auto attacks, then you're hopeless.

Unless you're in a matchup where they naturally have a better early game (a.k.a Syndra and LeBlanc), then you've got to learn how to play lanes correctly. As I've said before, I have no problem playing control mages. My main, Malz, is at a 60% winrate (78% if you include normals). Most of Malzahar's damage comes from his voidlings, they don't get to do damage because they get 1 shot. Malzahar mains have instead had to start using Malefic Visions to trade, with a Call of the Void to try and refresh it. Bare in mind that is is mana sustain and wave clear used to trade. This means Malzahar has worse waveclear and mana sustain then almost any champion if he decides to trade. You can say "well you have to lose out somewhere" but if you look at other midlaners, you can see they don't xD
This is why you learn to take favorable trades. Malzahar has the ability to put an E on the wave and push with his W. As the minion wave dies, his E will come up and you can use that opportunity to trade with his E and his Q.

He can poke and there are tradeoffs for choosing certain champions over others. Champions like Yasuo, Riven, and Katarina don't have the ability to contribute as much to their team except for damage.

: We need more AP + Armor items
Mages have the ability to stack hp + Zhonyas being a broken active. In addition, mages naturally have range advantage over AD champions and naturally groups with their team to try and siege and contribute to fights while being in the backline so they're going to have more safety in comparison to AD champions. Thus, they don't have as much of a need for defensive items in general.

The only possible reason to feel like playing against Zed is unfair is when he gets a hexdrinker. Hexdrinker is just too good of an item.

: > even during the time where you claim he was "balanced" you have numerous posts in your history crying about him. Cause Zed overall is goddamn annoying to deal with. mana-less waveclear + easy CSing along with items that have in description "fuck all mages". Laning against him pre 6 is like watching shark in the same pool as you getting hungrier. Post 6.. Well, time to dine, ye? But even with all of that bullshit, he was least annoying to deal with. > Secondly, LL stylish didnt stop playing zed in favor of mages because of some secret plan to get zed buffed, he did it cause zed was unplayable in high elo and he was winning more with mages Unplayable or not freelo? Anyways, dunno the guy, but overall in higher ranked all (or almost all) assassins are pretty much unplayable. They "abuse" lack of communication or weak teamplay or enemy msitakes, that usually don't happen at higher play. And if he'd have decent winrate with Zed at those levels, then this champ would be hyper-toxic on lower levels. --- As much as i like playing Zed, playing against him is just.... Not. Fun. Cause you know that either you lose and he farms on you, or you hold your ground and Zed goes to other lane for his kills. You can't win against him mid. Then you win or lose depending if you can shut down Zed in teamfight or whichever ADC have less of brain damage. Zed kinda resembles yasuo. You can't outplay him. He can only outplay himself.
Lmao, if you were actually decent, you would see how much you could dominate Zed. Sadly, you don't understand how to exploit windows of opportunity.
