You can contact support and ask them to remove it. They did this for me a few years ago.

: Update ARAM!
Teams with huge ults would auto win the game if that shit started at 6.
: Why I play ARAM now
Instant queues and action with matches that typically last 20 minutes... It's the superior gamemode. If only they'd bring back rotating game modes too.

: How is it possible I keep having teams who have 0 interest in dragons/baron/herald ?
Ward, ping, and tell people in chat to get it. It's all you can do. Best bet is to queue with people who want to contest these objectives, at-least until you can soloqueue into teams that do them.

: I tried to assist, but most of the time there's just nothing you can do, i'm not a smurf i'm playing against some guys who has pretty much the samel level as i have but are much more fed. Also i was playing riven, so i pretty much needed the help of my team but i had none. i did roam multiple times towards midlane and TP botlane, but even if i could scrap a kill or two, ennemy still ended up killing my teamates
My point is that it's a team game. Winning your lane in a bubble doesn't automatically win the game. This isn't a problem unique to top lane either. Feeding affects all lanes.
: do you not play ranked? or have you been gone since season 7?
: Dude, you've been playing aram for the entire season.
Xphineas (NA)
: Actually you got the abilities wrong XD. His W is the 10 second rewind while the E is the slow/speed up. One of the reasons zilean is so strong is because his Q is unavoidable damage; which when combined with W can be a stun. in total zilean has the longest CC chain in the game. E Q W Q E. The E can slow up to 99%, the stun is about a second long. However, to answer your question. Zilean is very simple and boring, so not a lot of people play him.
One of his huge issues is that his Q, especially if you want the stun, deals a huge amount of damage to the wave, and the enemy can ensure that it does this.
Nithke (EUW)
: I was a fed guy, not faker, not everything is carriable
So by the time you had won lane, everyone had fed 20 deaths? I'm not telling you to carry them. I'm telling you to assist them. If you had won lane so easily, you would've had plenty of opportunities to do that.

Before her rework you could give team-mates mana. In addition to taking Clarity.. so you could sit back and just constantly heal your team and keep their mana up. Which is what I'm referring to. Riots patch notes and comments around the community were almost directly quotable as they regret putting healers in the game and they didn't want someone sitting back not fighting... so they completely reworked Raka to force her into a combat role.. then the player base continued to do it, so they started nerfing her like crazy. Which is why I find it ironic/hilarious that Yuumi pretty much just sits back unable to be hit and just spams heals.
> Before her rework Old Soraka had to get in the middle of the fight to stack shred, so she wasn't as passive as you remember/think.

Why play an old man when you can play a cute girl?

: You're 7/1, did a perfect laning phase, survived everyganks
Yeah, you lost, because this is a team game, and if you're so godlike (laned perfectly and survived every gank but somehow died) why didn't you go assist them?

Now Yuumi just sits around completely untargetable and does the same thing more or less. Yeah sure, she has slows and her ult and etc... But the point I'm making is, she sits around completely untargetable until she decides to leave or someone kills her attached partner. I've got a lot of experience with Raka and I played Yuumi today for the first time to get her mechanics down and just healbotted my entire team up through entire fights. The only time I died was when whoever I attached to over extended solo into a 1 (2) V 5 and they burst them down through my healing. Otherwise I just kept bouncing around and healbotting.

: Patch Time? Tf?
When should they do it? These companies don't work at 2 in the morning. They have to choose a time during business hours, and early morning is when the least amount of people are affected. There's nothing "asinine" about it.
UnityOE (NA)
: How does one minion side win over lane without champion presence?
Siege Minions choose targets somewhat randomly, and small, random pathing differences add up.
: Guys, how do you pick items on what situation your on
Learn the items, and it should be obvious. Most champions have a core, and your situational items are based on countering the enemy offensively or defensively. **Examples**: Champions with a lot of armor? {{item:3035}} Last Whisper into {{item:3036}} Lord Dominik's Regards Champions with a lot of healing? {{item:3123}} Executioner's Calling into {{item:3033}} Mortal Reminder. {{item:3165}} Morellonomicon for AP Champions with a lot of health? {{item:3153}} Blade of the Ruined King or {{item:3151}} Liandry's Torment Champions with a lot of magic resist? {{item:3135}} Void Staff Champions with a lot of physical damage? Do they have a lot of ttack speed (Tristana, Varus, etc)? {{item:3110}} Frozen Heart. Do they have a lot of healing (Aatrox, Rhaast, Supported by Soraka, Sona, etc)? {{item:3075}} Thornmail. Do they deal huge crits (Jhin, Yasuo, Tryndamere, etc)? {{item:3143}} Randuin's Omen. Do you need health and armor and need MS to get into the fight (Udyr)? {{item:3742}} Deadman's Plate. Do you play an AP diver who needs to survive the dive or to survive an assassin jumping you? {{item:3157}} Zhonya's Hourglass. Does the enemy have a lot of team-wide damage (Kennen, Fiddlesticks, etc)? {{item:3190}} Locket of the Iron Solari. ETC ETC ETC
: league is going down the drain.
Looking at your match history, you die an awful lot. No surprise every champion feels busted after you feed 15-20 kills in every other game. PepeLaugh
: I have HIGH CHOLESTEROL AT AGE 22. TAKING A BREAK FROM LEAGUE!!
Cholesterol levels are not a good indicator of health because they fluctuate so much. You can fast and cause them to plummet and give the illusion you're healthy. There are other tests for determining your actual health. Also, some people get heart disease with low cholesterol levels. Some people are perfectly healthy with high. It's genetic, and when it matters, it's entirely diet. Exercise helps, but it's entirely diet. Just eat right man. Cut out processed garbage. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Cut out excessive fats. Eat lean meat sparingly and opt for fish. You can still sit around playing League but just eat right. Losing weight, lowering your blood test scores, etc will come from just following a good diet and nothing else.

And speaking as someone who has just such problems, I don't even earn any IP anymore, know why? because it's all limited to the gambleboxes now, and you can be damned sure if I have to open lootboxes in order to progress in this game I'm going to get hooked on them and start spending money, it's happened before.
> Overwatch popularized the lootbox system Team Fortress 2 actually. Hextech Crafting makes them money, but the point is that people who play without spending money benefit. I've had opportunities to own many epic skins for free. Some of them I crafted into permanents. They could find a way to make money while benefiting everyone else with Practice Mode. I don't think Blue Essence was a thing when Hextech Crafting rolled out either. I think the game still used IP at that point. Blue Essence, especially only getting it from disenchants, came later. It was not an initial fault.

: "Jax enters a defensive stance"
Let's be honest, in most cases, Jax isn't landing five man stuns. He's jumping on one person and taking a lot of aggro for it, and he relies entirely on his kit to be able to survive that. Galio and Rammus don't rely entirely on their W to survive their jump-in's. They're inherently tanky and build tanky. They can afford to take the aggro. That's why they have a downside.

: Well I got to 2500 MMR on Aram so that's something... your comment is totally worthless.
2500 MMR according to what? [This site](https://na.whatismymmr.com) that says 2500 calculated/estimated MMR is the top 0.63% of players? They're right. Just stun/exhaust her, and she's useless. Katarina is only a problem at low levels.
: darius
No one in your game built anti-healing or anti-armor even though he ended the game with 210 bonus armor and had additional sustain from Death's Dance tho. Of course he deals a lot of damage with few items. His damage is largely built into his kit. Just kite him bro.
: Sylas Rework Idea
That would be horribly overpowered, and they would have to code thousands upon thousands of special cases where stolen abilities interact and conflict with one another on Sylas.
IceFang7 (NA)
: I don't think you guys realize that riot won't put in the effort to do something unless it makes them money. This is why lesser played champions like warwick have tons of bugs, while Riven gets to stay in a good spot every season and Ezreal gets skins so often. Riot won't implement any features into the game just for the players, they only look at the profit. That's why champions get buffed before they release a skin for them. That's why they developed a dota auto chess clone so quickly, instead of putting in resources to make Twisted Treeline a better mode. Auto chess was a popular gamemode, and they jumped on the trend to grab as much cash as they could. Twisted Treeline would have taken effort to balance, and there is no guarantee that it would have been a popular gamemode if fixed, so they just plan on deleting it. It's sad, but $$$ is the only thing that is important to them, like any other massive companies. This is what happens when games become too popular, greed ruins them.

: That PC isn't even worth $4000, even when you take all the launch prices instead of the current ones, oh my. I really hope you didn't buy that one just to play League, other than that the recent Patch screwed up a lot of things with the game. Might have to wait until the next 7 Patches until they finally start fixing stuff.

That build at current prices is $3,300 on Newegg. It's not unreasonable for it to have been $4,000 at launch.
: Going from 500FPS to 100FPS on a $4000 PC REAL QUICK!!!!
You don't need 500 FPS. All you're doing is taxing the video card and reducing its lifespan. You're not at a disadvantage because you're not squeezing every last frame out of the card. It's just a huge waste of processing power. Ironically, your frame-rate is probably dropping because you're running it uncapped. You won't notice a discernible difference in FPS past 120-150. Set your global FPS max to 150 in the video card app and be done with it.
DUDE BRO (NA)
: Won't happen for 1 reason: Play a champion and realize you don't like him vs Buy a champion because he looks cool then realize you don't like him but you already bought him. Sadly Riot won't do anything that may lower sales. Everything has become about squeezing as much money out of us as possible. They don't even allow all champs in ARAM.
> Sadly Riot won't do anything that may lower sales. Everyone said this about skins until they added crafting.

: Remove tank damage and make them just tanks.
Hecarim isn't a true tank. If you removed or gimped Hecarim's damage, where does his utility come from? He has no crowd control except his ultimate. You think anyone's going to bother attacking him if he were tanky but dealt no damage? You shouldn't expect to be able to clearly win a 1v against Mundo either, even if he's behind and/or you're ahead, because most of his power comes directly from his kit.

Thanks again. :) Someone already had done that recently and you actually DO get a random skin of a random champ costing 975rp, so no reason to waste your time trying.
Broporo (NA)
: If that's the case, the system would probably end up giving you a random skin 975 or lower for a completely random champion, even if you don't own the champion. I don't believe it would just give you the 1350 Void Bringer skin.
I guess there's only one way to find out... I'll stop bothering you with questions now. Thanks again. :)
Broporo (NA)
: No worries hah! I was honestly just confused as to why you would have gotten multiple Premium Chests lol. No problem with being a one-trick pony either, I was with Teemo until I found Illaoi ^_^
Interesting you should mention Illaoi. I was considering her. You said the premium chest only rewards skins that cost 975 RP or less. What if I opened one and only owned Illaoi? She only has the one skin (Voidbringer) and it's a 1350 RP skin. What would happen there?
Broporo (NA)
: Ahaaaaa! I honestly thought you were talking about the normal hextech chests, my bad! The Premium Chest will give you a random skin for a champion you own that costs 975 or less. Since Soraka has 3 skins in the shop that qualify right now it's pretty unlucky that you've gotten the same one, but it is still a random skin. I'm assuming that you're making multiple accounts and leveling them up, because otherwise, I'm a little confused as to how you're opening so many premium chests xD.
Oh, I never considered that. That makes a lot of sense. Thanks for explaining. > I'm assuming that you're making multiple accounts and leveling them up, because otherwise, I'm a little confused as to how you're opening so many premium chests xD. I went through a phase where I wanted to one-trick every champion in the game. Lol
Broporo (NA)
: Those skins are in fact random. Sometimes it might not seem like it though. For instance: I myself have actually gotten Elementalist Lux as a skin shard 5 times.....right after I bought her nonetheless. Regardless of my terrible luck, the skins shards from hextech chests are not fixed, but sometimes you might get the same shard just by coincidence.
Just to double check: I mean the free Hextech chest you get at level 5 not one from the loot system. The level 5 chest gives a guaranteed skin for one of your owned champion(s). It doesn't reward random champion/skin shards. I've gotten two different Draven skins from this chest, but every Soraka skin has been the same. I guess it's just bad luck. Thanks for responding.
