: You forgot how it's nearly impossible for someone to learn League ~~and the meta~~ on their own without a single friend telling them what's going on. For reference I never knew a meta existed until level 29 and that was already season 3. There needs to be a way for players that have never played MOBAs to learn to play League without anyone specifically telling them what to do.

: ADC's are going to get doran's shield nerfed for the melees that need it to survive.
Holy shit, I still don't know why they aren't diminishing the values for ranged champions on this item. i'm going to bring up dota as a comparison because there is an item vaguely similar to this (quelling blade) that existed before guinsoo left to make League. Have you learned nothing, good sirs at Riot dev team!?!?!?
: #1 reason Yasuo is banned
i usually ban him because the windwall can potentially invalidate an entire teamfight or block a spell that could lead to a potential game-ending teamfight.
: Lifesteal is still a plauge of game balance
the dota guys realised this ages ago and diminished lifesteal percentages for ranged heroes across the board, thought guinsoo and his cronies picked up on this when they first made this game lul.
: Riot Devs: Attempt to Get Yasuo Unpermabanned Failed, Now Even More Banned
well the windwall can still potentially invalidate like 70% of a team comps damage. playing around that requires some moderate teamwork which is uncommon in soloqueue. that's a reason why i would ban him.
: Anyone else feel like they are less of a person because they can't climb higher than silver/bronze?
bronze is the best division to be in, i don't see why any rational person would want to leave. constantly battling on the streets for honour.
: How is it Fiora feels insane from early laning to late game, yet still loses games all the time?
shitty macro play ie bad rotations shit like that. fiora has an insane splitpush that usually requires more than 2 people to deal with, if fiora's team realise this then they will ward well and play cautious but usually fiora's team just ARAMs it in a disadvantaged 4v5 and get flanked pretty much how ever other splitpusher loses the game except for maybe tryndamere.
: ffs plat is not low elo
gold is the biggest fucking joke right now the amount of idiocy seen here is just astounding, i'm disgusted to even be in gold right now. I'd rather be in bronze. ELO inflation is a bitch. thanks a lot season 6
: Alright this is a bit silly, any tips? (Ranked solo que)
maybe put more wards down from time to time to get more information so you can catch people out on rotations because it looks to me like your macro play is complete dogshit. You're just banking on the games devolving into ARAMs and winning via dice-roll teamfights.
: Why higher elo players are often the worst players in lower elo...
high elo players usually win on macro game rotations in the mid-late game and/or outplay the opponent with their mechanics in lane phase. low ELO win by gambling with seemingly randomly distributed kills across the map until 15mins where it devolves into an ARAM or player's just wandering aimlessly for a pick.
: i personally never play ranked but all i know is bronze is the biggest joke in league. i recently decided to do my placements for the season because i was bored and i did decent 7/3 with the losses being the bot lane got fed and i couldn't do anything. and i got placed in bronze 5 which really doesn't matter to me since i only play normals but i have played 7 games since i got that and every single game was a bigger joke than the next the first game i got was against a heal ghost level 7 mastery illaoi that played so bad and i could include the rest but it would take too long for me to type everything seeing how basically everything anyone bronze player does is a joke
ahh a realist, refreshing. now spread your rationalism to everyone else!

: Is lobby chat monitored as well?
what that guy said was in extremely fucking poor taste and he might get punished for it if you trigger a manual audit on his account. iirc, all metadata in the client is recorded on the Riot API but they only access it when ordered by a court of law or extreme circumstances.
: What if Blitzcrank could pull allies in game?
if it were implemented from the beginning then it wouldn't be an issue but now it would be because the game has become synonymous for trolling
Dukues (NA)
: Isn't Division 2 generally thought of as the hardest division to pass?
the hardest divisions to pass are the ones where you start getting the tiltlord V players from the next rank up
: PSA to all the people saying SKT should let other teams win. this is a COMPETITION.
if league had more international competitions then it wouldn't be as boring to watch the same guys winning all the time just sayin. MSI, IEM, worlds then we have this crappy all-stars event. I also think the teams fester when they just fight the same guys over and over again for months on end in the same regions sans Korea.
: What does Tristana need to become relevant again?
needs an LCS player to play them

Lategame Yi can face 2000 stacks full armor/health/cdr Nasus. Udyr doesn't even come close to that powerlevel, even if Nasus chooses not to W him.
i was thinking along the lines of udyr kiting him with bear stance and tiger rinse and repeat with a triforce because the bear stun can't be dodged completely by yi's alpha as he'll still be stunned when he comes out. but i'm not sure as I've never seen these 2 go at it super late-game

: How do you play against Pantheon?
if you play a tank into pantheon then go armour quints and take runic armour and perseverance
: Is Master yi the strongest 1v1 Champion, even stronger then fiora?
I think off-tank fervor tiger udyr can beat master yi even-gold and skilled
: I was 1/2/0 in the mid lane, losing in CS, extremely tilted
being 1/2 isnt as bad as having a support building damage/tank without a sighstone and then proceeding NEVER to do damage or tank or junglers that waste 5minutes walking around aimlessly not farming or threatening a lane. Rather have a 1/2 midlaner than those guys.
: I Dont Give A Shit If This Is A Normal Game
feeding is a side effect of learning/practising new champs against human opponents, would you rather they do this more frequently in ranked?
xWaters (NA)
: The way 10 bans is executed is trash.
keep the first 6 bans as is and then implement this crappy blind selection for the last 4 bans.
: My main problem with adding voice chat in league...
is it true that everyone on the europe servers just flame in their native language?
: It's hilarious seeing the damage Dynamic Queue did last season
it's even more shocking when you run across a bronze player who actually required boosting to SILVER.
: Who has a lower skill floor. Kha'zix or rengar.
kha'zix by a mile because he doesn't require good knowledge of brushes to maximise his jungle clear.

MysterQ (NA)
: Can you dodge in promos? Last time I did (at advice from boards), I did not get my promo helper. And the FAQ says dodging does not give you a promo helper. Do you have play all 2/3 of your first promo to get the helper, then you can dodge future games if you didn't promote? I mean it makes sense because you lose less IP for the dodge than playing through a terrible loss, so you can get back to promos faster. But if you don't get the helper, it sucks.

I mean it makes sense because you lose less IP for the dodge than playing through a terrible loss, so you can get back to promos faster. But if you don't get the helper, it sucks. i dodged the first 2 and played the last one which I happened to lose. Post-game screen gave me the promo helper notice but this was a few months ago so my memory might just be hazy, i dunno for sure i'm going to test it in the coming week with an account i have in silver 1.
: What is actually the incentive to climbing when the ranking system is set up like this?
a tip for all you low ELO guys: start screening your teammates to see if you need to dodge and also dont be afraid to dodge your promos from time to time to abuse promo helper. its the only way i was able to keep my sanity while getting to gold. at least 50% of the time in my promos, i had some completely new ranked player on my team or some mega 10 game loss streak tiltlord which were no-brainers to dodge. Rather dodge than play these games out. of course this only works if you yourself are decent enough to climb, sometimes you'll be the one that is to expected fail spectacularly in an outclassed matchup.

Guardman (NA)
: PSA: Cinderhulk is better off skipped or replaced
would you recommend just skipping the completion of the jungle item?
: Sigh Riot Admits You will not get banned for boosting!
people who fork out cash for boosting are likely to fork out money for rp. if you think about it, both are just different expressions of of the same vanity
: Ok, can we disable people playing champions they've never played before in ranked?
can't, it would affect the niche market of people purely buying skins to test them out in ranked.
: Do you want to know what is the most tiring thing to see as a bronze player?
i thought the most tiring thing to see as a bronze player was other bronze players. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Safa (EUW)
: How did you find you main ?
went to op.gg, looked at the lowest winrate/playrate champs at the time and rolled some dice
: Truth Time: If you smurf, you are creating an artificial elo hell
I have no problem with people smurfing as I believe it raises the bar for lower ELo players to get better, I still believe it is an impetus for improvement. Realistically, everyone that has seriously climbed has been stomped mercilessly by smurfs on several occasions. The smurfs are also needed to keep people in check such as the people who think tank veigar and zilean jungle are good ideas.

You know, like lucian can proc braum passive very quickly, or like rakan and xayah gets bonuses together, or like how well kogmaw is with lulu or other peel supports.

Often times I just find myself raging internally from the zone control created by the traps, especially if the traps are dispersed around the minion waves which increases the probability of getting hit by support cc and by that time Cait will probably have a trap recharged just in time to put one on me as soon as the support cc ends.

i dont know about that but I usually get chunked to death when the enemy support cc's me and the cait drops the trap pretty much on top of me during the cc duration allowing it to prime.
: How can people main a champion?
easier to climb + don't have to worry about grinding IP for champs and multiple permutations of rune/page setups.
: What regions do you want new champions to come from?
need more battle mage wizard spellblades
: Ping muting testing soon
i'm going to overreact to this and say that this is the fucking beginning of the end for low ELO. we'll have more conflicts over no MIA pings than ever before, bronze/silver are about to collapse on themselves like a supermassive blackhole. punishments for non-communication will skyrocket through the roof and the only players who will climb out of hell will be the ones that can 1v3 the top, mid and jungler ad infinitum.
: Stop Wasting Your Money On Boosted Accounts
I know there are a lot of high ELO players that share their account with lowbie friends, it was very common to see the phrase 'i don't care it's not even my account' in the games i played towards seasons ends i also believe that many high ELO players have in excess of 4-5 accounts that they regularly alternate between to stomp lowbies/ shorter queue times etc. so I don't think they would even care if the account gets banned
Elfezen (NA)
: Graves can have a Cigar...
leave him be, I say! for the sake of comedy. despite owning spirit guard udyr, i only play black belt because it looks so damn goofy with his pizza feet. there's nothing more tilting than getting bear/tiger slapped to death by a jackass with pizza feet and a bear coat.
Rioter Comments
: The ARAM changes still never solved the most glaring issue.
even if all champions were unlocked, several players including myself would probably still not play it because you can't get key fragments from champs that are not owned.

Sihari (EUW)
: 1st) pls dont try to compare the damage a Zilean and a Janna has done... Even if both buy full AP and play like a god, the Janna will never do more damage. But her shield and the AD she gives will be huge! 2nd) if you really want to compare supports, then wait for the new stats, like "dmg shielded" or the "CC-Count" They are much more important for a support than dmg

I only outlined the damage for blitz and zilean because it was notable that they didn't build conventional, were able to outdamage a lot of people and tank more than other players while still warding well with lackluster KDAs compared to the Janna who in comparison had insane KDA but didn't ward well and built what i believe to be inefficient items. I don't believe Janna needs to stack AP to be that relevant as her bases are pretty good and stacking AP for her shield is costly when you can just get a Locket for a bigger aoe shield that scales on level as well as a useful mikaels as Janna is a low damage support anyway. damage dealt/tanked is just a more coherent stat which the community universally associate with usefulness
: The one thing that can you never underestimate in bronze.
The team with the 30/0 darius doesn't always throw the game himself, his team does because they don't understand the pressure game and how much attention that 30/0 darius is drawing to himself. I've seen this situation many times also and it usually goes like this: 30/0 darius is so fed that he goes and splitpushes a lane, his team converges on the darius instead of pushing sidelanes and pressuring for objective control. Teammates then proceed to get caught out and feed en route in a conveyor belt fashion, darius eventually gets outnumbered and killed due to conveyor belt feeding causing the darius lead to gradually taper off. Low ELO guys have a strange magnetism to the most fed member on their team because they're hoping they'll get carried by the fed teammate instead of efficiently using that generated pressure. even if the fed guy starts dying, you can still win the game if you understand the effects of the pressure they are generating.
