She really is. %hp true dmg and invisibility. And not just %hp true dmg. %hp true dps!
: Vayne is awful right now.
Thats exactly my point. Shes awful because of the consequences when she isnt awful. If she was changed so that those consequences could be avoided, then they wouldnt suppress her as they are currently doing.

Hi, Things are worse than ever. I don't have an issue playing streaming from youtube. I don't know what it is that makes your game impossible to run smoothly. It makes zero sense that my computer cant form a stable connection to your servers when that's the only thing the computer is running. The packets this game sends over the network are tiny and shouldnt interact with my firewall. Machine is literally doing nothing and its still getting in its own way. You need to make your connection guide automated one click process. If the problem is with windows, please release a version of this game for Linux Ubuntu. All I do on this machine is surf the web, apply for jobs, skype, league. Why is there so much garbage like Xbox app, Cortana, bullshit I cant uninstall that clearly interfere with what I do want to do? Whenever the xbox app randomly appears in my process list the game goes to 150 ping. I don't have any control over this shit and you don't need to ask me to work my way through a connection guide to fix it. There is one step the user needs to go through to connect. Plug in Ethernet. That's it. If I had a partition on this machine that literally only ran league, it would be a preferable experience. There should/could be an option to run league in isolation. Let me know when you have a one click solution going. Cause I'm not playing this game anymore. Ive got a book that's equally as fun and I don't have to troubleshoot it.

: Support is a boosted role because all they play is Lux, Annie, Malzahar, etc and cheese their way to victory. I know people who play support and got to Gold faster than me and they aren't even good in terms of map awareness, mechanics, macro/micro, last hitting :(

Fervor is more op than warlords. Once you hit lvl 5 its like an additional 150 dmg in an all in or something. I meant the order of the items you go.
ie first. i can see er tho. get a third axe in the air faster.

It is so ridiculously frusterating to get an S+ in your game (as a Rumble in the Jg) and still have a majority f*#& all team that is either bad or just throwing, and you lose. I mean look into my LoLKing profile.. I beg you please! Using LoLSumo I have a Plat II SPI, yet I still lose so many ranked games where I feel like I do very good (at least relative to the other players in game). If anyone has advice or tips to help me on my attempted grind out of bronze I would appreciate it, or if you have knowledge on how to deal with these poor seeming teammates leave a comment! I hesitate to blame the ranking system but I feel screwed over that although I can win 9 placement games and get S ranks in many of my games, I still get thrown in a moshpit of bad or trolling players! RITO HELP ME! Hey I got an idea. Start asking around what are the best champions to punish people with. So you probably think that getting out of bronze is about carrying really hard, but I got out of bronze with ashe and it wasn't because I was slaughtering people with her. So one thing I remember happening every game with ashe is that they would pick a tank like garen or darius and that player would start to get really aggressive and put themselves too close to me and too far from their team. I would then ulti the tank. My team would probably not follow up very well but regardless, their tank would start to die a lot more in the following teamfights. And he would probably flame his team. So yea, I think bronze is about punishing those enemy teammembers who would feed if they were on your side. Cause they are bad you just gotta make em look bad.

: if you have 8 kills in 9 minutes, you can just dive them yourself as draven

: Draven decides. I mean we communicate, but at the end of the day if Draven is fed I stick with him. He wants to shove bot lanes teeth in, I ward their bot jungle. He roams, I roam. Leona staying in lane by herself is 100% pointless. As bard I might throw my meeps out to shove the lane before I leave. Kennen, group dammit...
Yea. I just started this thread to bitch about my last support who was duoing with a kennen btw. I took river crab and went mid after my 5th kill. Leona stayed behind and died to sona jinx. Then she bitched about my roam and failed to produce a decent engage with kennen. No idea how you fuck that wombo up. We even had a morgana.

: Zed deserves nerfs less than any other mid laner. He is already in a horrible state and is even worse due to tank meta + courage. I dont think he needs a buff as much as most other non-adc champions deserve a nerf.
Zed is in a great state. Hes just a hard champion to play and you suck with him.
: How I think riot is gonna handle draven-
hopefully they will nerf ultimate dmg.
: if they did that they'd hve to increase his numbers or add power elsewhere in his kit/ he's fine as is.

: As a bronze. Should RIOT changes the MMR system?
imo, there ought to be something below bronze. sort of like a league of unranked players who are still lvl 30. I get put with them every new season and I feel bad flaming new players, but at the same time I cant stop because I play a lot of ad.

: Id like to do what riot did to defense of ancients and remake this game
I think ive been able to abstractify what it is that makes the halo gameplay so satisfying to me. Ill start with the assumptions that 1) the map is the most powerful/influential force in the game and 2) the amount of power that the players have in comparison is small. If you have those two assumptions, you automatically have a balanced game and the reward for winning is meaningful. It is easily seen that the players must leverage the power of the map in order to win. If they dont fight over this power, it will by default be awarded to the enemy. So that is forced, but since the map is entirely neutral no one can claim that the winner did not merit victory. Balance. If you win the game, it is known that you did better work on the map. That makes victory over your opponents meaningful. Contrast that with league. The amount of power players have is quite large with respect to the map and ive lost fights that began with the enemy facechecking me. Combine that with the early vs late champion dynamic + snowballing, and you often have enough power asymmetry that you dont feel like you did very much to win the teamfight. So yea. There are times when victory in league is NOT meaningful. Contrast that with the example of killing the guy with the rocket launcher when I only have a pistol and a grenade. Well. Since I was playing around map position and information readily accessible to all players, I feel quite confident that I outplayed the hell out of that guy. And I feel good as hell about it. The good thing about halo is that these interactions are frequent and satisfying. The bad thing about league is that asymmetrical situations like um idk... adc vs syndra are common and meaningless other than their propensity to create even more asymmetry (snowballing). So the more and more you find yourself in asymmetrical and competitively unsatisfying interactions, the more asymmetry you create and the less satisfying it is. The solution I am offering is to fill the neutral environment with enough power to dwarf power differentials between champions. Ensuring that ownership of the power is transient and contestable, the game would be about consistently tipping the balance in your favor until the game ends. The power differential between players will only serve to temporarily tip the balance of power granted by the map. Thats pvevp.
: Having a Support is enforced just as much as having a Jungler, a Solo Top and a Solo Mid. If you're going to cry about Riot "enforcing the meta" with this you're about a season late. I have a hard time understanding people who aren't willing to play other roles. If you played impromptu games of Soccer with different groups over and over you wouldn't expect to get your first or even second favorite role all the time. You certainly wouldn't go and troll your team by kicking the ball out of bounds each time you weren't in your favorite position. If you're so determined to not play a certain position, queue up with a group.
jungle is a position. Support is not only a role, it is also a specific tactic called resource funneling.

: League is a 5v5 game. If you do not like 5v5 you need to go play a different mode or a different game.
Or they can create a different mode. I used to say they should get rid of support. In my more unreasonable moments, I still do. At other times, Ill make the above argument which is different. You say that like it is an absolute. Well, riot has changed its philosophy before. They have said that they do not support any given meta. Well that clearly isnt true given that they have quite literally installed the support role into the drafting process. Support is now a role that is enforced by the User Interface as well as the balance decisions they repeatedly make. If they can swing that far on this issue, then they can create a new game mode where we duo lanes are not a requirement and that would be a 4v4 scenario. You can play a support role in a 4v4 sum rift. You would just have more gold to do it with. The difference is only that there is no duo lane and we dont ask people to auto fill anymore. Atlas shrugged bby. You dont have the right to force me to support. I really ought to troll the shit out of the game whenever it happens to me, but im not that kind of person. By making the game uncomfortable for all of the players on my team, I would punish riot by making their game as toxic as possible. I dont think its worth doing that to myself and others, but it would be justified in some philosophies. Btw, who else thinks its funny that the most subsidized role in league is also the role you are most likely to be conscripted into playing? I dont like being forced into things, but I might even be ok with it if I understood why having at least one duo lane is SOOOO important that we have to coddle it the way we do.
: Autofill is a necessary evil. Prior to the New Champion Select (the ability to queue for 2 roles), you got your preferred roles or didn't depending on random pick order and what the other players were willing to compromise; matchmaking didn't care if you were all ADC mains and hated every other role. With the NCS you've got a considerably better shot at matchmaking arranging a team more evenly comprised of players suited to each role. The kicker is that sometimes it is very difficult for matchmaking to create a reasonable even match and do that, so the options are either A) take longer, sometimes VERY long looking, or B) sometimes place people in positions they aren't comfortable in.
auto fill only exists because there are roles that no one wants to play. it is NOT a necessary evil. If you turn this game into a 4v4, then autofill disappears because you can afford to give the 4 remaining players more agency.
: Players like OP that have this one-dimensional overview of Supporting generally don't find long-term success in the game.
support doesnt do anything that the other roles dont do better. they just do it without cs. give me a break.
