: no, if im too relaxed and stop caring about my teamates mistakes, they become more relaxed as well, a ping helps trigger them and keep their mind in the agme, without impacting my honor level. I tried using pings nicely, didnt work out, i always use pings very aggresively and commonly and spam pings on the enemy jungler while spamming pings on my teams mistakes so they can play better. if im in a tilted state, i don't ping as much, and that causes me to lose more games. muting is for people who don't like communicating to win and people willing to acknowledge their mistakes

: I have a few questions on some of your points. 6; When you say Kayn, do you mean Rhaast? Kayn doesn't have any kind of healing on his ult without Death's Dance if he's not Rhaast, and even then I've yet to see a Kayn or Shadow Assassin Kayn heal a ton from his ult with Death's Dance. If I've missed Kayn himself healing like that then please point me to where I can see it, as I'm confused here. 15; While I can also agree Morde ult is a pain in the ass, there is a counter. QSS, invisibility, being unstoppable, and being untargetable cancel his ult, while spell shields block it if you can time it right. Are people just unaware of this or do they not have the stuff or have the stuff up for it? Other than those two questions, I'm not concerned about everything else. You're basically spot on.

: Kayle isnt a late game champion any more.
I'm in the same boat. Your post reflects my impression of current Kayle as well. Kayle having an "okay" late game just feels weird for the champ honestly, when historically she has always been known to have a very powerful late game, even pre-rework. I personally just wish they had left her as is, but meh I hope I'll get used to that new power curve lol

: Picking your champ before your opponent in toplane is just a death sentence for your laning phase
Riot wants counterpick meta to be a thing I think. The changes to Renekton, changing Sylas' shield to negate magic damage only, gutting Kassadin's armor so he struggles even more vs AD matchups. They want champions to have specific weaknesses that can be abused by certain champions. They don't want champions to be blindpickable. I'm not a fan of it either, but it's how Riot wants it :/

Yep. Just happened to me today as well. For reference, my connection is really crisp, and I'm using a high end PC. My games normally load up incredibly fast, but today one of my game just wouldn't load at all. The game eventually crashed after many minutes of waiting in the loading screen.

: Kayle: Smoothing out her laning phase in return for slightly curbing late game power
Honestly, It might be a rare opinion, but I like her current power curve. Managing a character's bad early game is a skill of it's own, but Kayle is greatly rewarded for lane knowledge and patience. I've only played Kayle mid exclusively, so my experience may differ from top. But mid lane, I find myself relatively safe, with little fear of getting dove. First few levels are really tough, as you mostly fight ranged matchups, but the lanes are much more poke oriented while top is heavy all in. Kayle's sustain is pretty nuts if you decide to max W in lane and literally spam it, you can literally turn the lane into a battle of attrition if you play conservative. Giving up mid lane priority until lv8-9 sucks, but she plays a lot like a Kassadin mid in that regard. I'm usually a little below my opponent in farm and half a level behind, but I never feel like the gap is insurmountable. So no, I personally find her early game fine for the most part. Playing her top might be different, but I find her very enjoyable to play mid lane.

: I'm going to attempt to make an argument here even though you have 18 PhD's and your brain works hundreds of times faster than mine. What you're saying isn't even true, I have over 9000 games in normal queue and the matches are very rarely competitive. The game puts me against people I crush and I'll go on streaks where I win like 80% of the time for 20 or so matches, then it puts me against D1 and challenger players where I lose 80% of the time for like another 20 matches. The matchmaking never sorts itself out, it just moves you from buckets of really bad opponents to really good opponents and never really gives you a match where you have a 50/50 chance of winning.
Agreed. There's a clear distinction between having a 50% win rate, with you either crushing or getting crushed, and having 50% win rate where each game is actually a 50/50 as to which team will win.

: Genuine thoughts on recent scandals/streamer issues.
This thread sums up exactly my thoughts regarding Riot and this game as a whole. As much as I love this game, it pains me that toxicity has become such an integral part of the game, as if it's now a norm, like you said. I also do think that promoting toxic streamers is not something you'd wanna do as a company, considering streamers are meant to be exemples to be followed. They're role models, literally. It's simply unacceptable for partnered streamers to be acting in a way that goes against the ToS of the game, and not be punished. It's contradicting on so many levels and shows a level of inconsistency from Riot in regard to their own rules. I really hope Riot takes the right decisions regarding this situation, considering this incident could very well screw them over down the line, especially if this is made even more viral than it currently is.

Why are you guys even crying, don't you just ban him anyway in low elo? And you realize Zed didn't get duskblade until later into the lane? The buffs he receives makes his lane stronger from the get go. He doesn't have to WAIT for duskblade, he gets his compensation buffs in his KIT, which he has access to from level 1.

: If your goal is to make supports more interactive...
Actually, depending on the lane, I'll sometimes put a few points in Q before W or E as Soraka. Maxing Q isn't wise, but putting 2-3 points early can actually allow you to bully your opponents pretty hard if the matchup allows it. The extra points in Q also allows you to both sustain yourself better, but also your partner since W applies your Q self heal to your partner. Good to keep note of.
: You get better from playing against better opponents, so the idea that they miss out on learning is not true
> [{quoted}](name=WaffIeMaker,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=ZRkbFUnn,comment-id=0007,timestamp=2017-12-07T05:03:24.396+0000) > > You get better from playing against better opponents, so the idea that they miss out on learning is not true That's very true, but only to some degree. While you do need to play against better opponents to improve, it needs to be gradual. If the skill gap between two players is too high, the guy getting smashed not only won't be able to learn as much since he'll literally get overwhelmed. But he might also get discouraged and literally give up. Players need to feel they stand a chance in order to have the will to improve. So actually, yes you can miss out on learning if you're only fighting people 5-6 times your skill level. It's why good matchmaking is so important in competitive games.
: >"Huur duur just CC him" applies to literally every fucking champion in the game, so it hardly counts as Draven specific counterplay. Draven literally tells you where he'll be ahead of time. He's way easier to cc than other champs due to that. >If he drops his axe (Which is pretty fucking hard since they go where you are moving to) Please go play some Draven. Try him out a bit. Between kiting and Wing and csing and accounting for the enemy's future actions the axes are hard to catch if someone isn't very confident in their Draven. Sure, they _can_ catch them, but they lose a crap-ton of damage during the hesitation time. >NOT IN DRAVENS CASE, He gets attack speed built in, with permanent uptime! No, he really doesn't. If he keeps spamming W on refresh he'll quickly go oom. The refresh is also contingent on him catching the axe which he telegraphs to the opponent. Slow him after he Ws and he pretty much loses the axe. Due to all of the above, I respect a well-played Draven.

Honestly, I used to main Draven when I played adc and while his axes do show where he'll be going and can lead to being CCed easier, they also allow you to bait your opponent's skillshots easier as well. The downfall is that you'd be purposely dropping an axe in favor of avoiding a CC, but he does have that mindgame going for him. The worst thing a Draven can do is going on auto pilot when catching his axes.

: Dear RIOT. I got banned for this. Never was I toxic until the end of the game. Unjustified.
Honestly, even as a student in Psychology, I always find myself astonished whenever I see posts like this pop up on the forums. Let me open up by saying that anger is a normal emotion and there's nothing wrong with it. Everyone feels anger, and it is generally acceptable for someone to be frustrated with a certain situation. However, it is how you deal with your frustration that isn't socially acceptable. There are multiple defense mechanisms humans use in order to deal with anxiety inducing situations. Denying the existence of the problem itself is a common one. Rationalization is another I commonly see on League regarding toxicity. I'm sorry to tell you, but the only thing I'm seeing in those chat logs is your incapacity to overcome the frustration caused by your teammates misplays without lashing out at them.
