: Gold is an extremely non-reactive metal, which explains why your team never helps
> [{quoted}](name=Kythers,realm=NA,application-id=yrc23zHg,discussion-id=0WA9dgUo,comment-id=0000,timestamp=2018-09-21T22:35:07.277+0000) > > Gold is an extremely non-reactive metal, which explains why your team never helps gold teams are like 5x as helpful as silver teams though, then randomly in plat no one helps again, not because they can't but because they're so salty at the game and that they're not pro players that they would rather intentionally not help you and then flame you passive aggressively in hopes you react then they can report you

: i think maybe because its late into the season when the provisional are being played you're winning vs people who have cementing their place below gold 1. Where as, If you do them toward the beginning of the season you might be fighting people who were previously plat / high plat. Since they all have to redo their provisional.

: That...seems incredibly odd. Well, I guess we all have our ways with shitty luck. I can't duo with anyone or I lose 90% of them. 5-man or solo, that's it.

I can't duo with anyone or I lose 90% of them. 5-man or solo, that's it. look at my match history today 3-4 players inting, always a HARD feeding top laner and a support that isn't a support at all even in games where my team sucks (which is most of them) i usually do okay, it's so bad today that i'm actually not even able to salvage a KDA of any sort, the games today are like if you were in tier 1 to next tier 5 promos but the entire day and it was a patch release sunday starting a new season, almost everyone has zero game sense and hard ints

I'd have just called it Chimpanzee 4, 3, 2, 1 to be actual like bronze 5 you are playing ranked with no league experience, or you're trolling, there is nothing else happening
: So Riot released that Iron is going under Bronze in the new rank system.
They thought Wood sounded too mean but we all know what division you're REALLY IN when you're "Iron"

: Wow i made it through 2 whole games before i wanted to die thats a new record this season.
it's gotten a lot better, assassins are just OK again, mages are OK, tanks are OK, adcs are OK, it's more-so about picking the busted meta shit like always
: Holding onto 10 gemstones.. hoping, wishing, praying
i hope literally none of those ever get one except amumu... the rest are cancer

: Apparently "I've already done this mission on another account" means "I don't know what I'm talking
yeah right lmao, you can't meet people anywhere and expect them to have a clue about this game, 7 out of 10 people can't even hit gold 5 and that elo doesn't understand the game at all you have to play games and find people to pick up / poach to play with you

: The art team knows more about 'Balance' than anyone else at Riot.
yeah like making a skin for lucian whos the #2 adc and upping his Q damage that's quality balance.

: Whatever happened to RP sales?
i was gonna say i can't even remember the last time they did that, it's all about money and Tencent discourages it knowing people will buy it whether there's discounts or not, they believe this game to be a premium product
: Best version of windows to you?
10 in its polished form is about as great as 7 felt, XP seemed fine, 98 was as stable and perfect as it gets relevant to tech at the time

: Would you rather honor a friendly player or a skilled player?
skilled, always, and forever, could care less about friendly i can make friends somewhere else, dont need to solely make them from ranked games
Rioter Comments
: So WildStar is being shut down, along with Carbine Studios
: Kaisa nerfs are not enough.
everything needs to stop having dash, stealth, shields, etc it's like the same person is making them all
: Any company that prioritizes money over customer satisfaction is a shit company
So...most likely all of them? Customer satisfaction is cool, but so is staying in business, you only do so much of one to get the other, look at Walmart, they could say come get your shit dumbass, and if it's cheap enough people will, and they'll praise the place for somehow thinking it's socially acceptable to shop there while smelling like shit, and that makes them happy.
: Dude builds full ap malphite against a yasuo after trying to duel him level 1 and dying
Yasuo is like that time in Season 4 when everyone freaked the fuck out at Riot for ignoring the overwhelming need for Lee nerfs, but it's been like 3+ years, and people just gave up.
: How is this club tag acceptable?
Imagine being so bored / offended by so little - you hunt down clan tags you don't like and report them
: Do people actually script anymore?
years? people are still doing it, anti-cheat has thrown a MAJOR wrench into the gears of the most popular one that people used. but the #1 script website has over 100,000 users across china, korea, NA, etc i'm sure a handful of smaller known ones have a few hundred to a few thousand each watch me get banned for "promoting cheating programs" ...cancerous moderation

I mean itemization never changes, champions actually used to have more diverse builds zac perfect example old zac could go full ap, hybrid, or full tank, could go top, mid, jungle, support, new zac is jungle and support at best, and has to build full tank the most deviation he can do is build {{item:3151}} zac is a perfect example of riot making league more linear, old zac if you needed to swap to full ap you could, there was some ebb and flow, it wasn't a certain "he wins this matchup" but new zac will always build full tank like league at a diamond+ level is apparently "over at champion select" is that healthy for a game? to know you already have a high chance at losing/winning before the game even starts? LOL WAIT THAT'S EXACTLY IT. league's outcome has already been decided assuming you don't fuck up, so when an akali top loses to a mordekaiser top, there's no question of, "maybe they just got unlucky" no it's a simple fact of "they fucking suck, akali always beats mordekaiser" https://www.leagueofgraphs.com/champions/counters where as in over watch for sure, you don't really know what your team mates are doing and you aren't keeping track of which team mate fucked up 2 mintues ago, and what hero they are now(making it harder to flame), and matchups aren't decided at pick, for example a 1 v 1 with genji vs d.v.a, (this may be a bad example since d.v.a has two lives, idk) but you couldn't say before hand who will win, because many factors go into it, aiming skills, prediction skills, reaction time, some luck if anyone reads this, I think I actually just solved cancer, the root cause of league toxicity is the fact that there is only one way to play the game, one way to play the match up, one objective to get first, your build is the same every game aside from merc treads vs tabi (lets be real) if 5 enemy team are dead with 40 seconds to re spawn and you're at the middle of mid lane with 5 team mates, and enemy inhib turrets are down, and baron is up, and elder drake is up, what do you do? - you get the 3 inhibitors, it's the safest option, you spawn 2 super minions each lane and can just wait for them to push a little bit, and do dragon/baron uncontested, if enemy contests they die. if you answered baron or dragon, you are getting flamed, because you are just wrong, there is no if ands or buts {{item:3091}} does anybody build this... like, at all? shen used to.. idk if he does anymore what are your thoughts ladies and gentlemen? is league Too linear? is that the root cause of toxicity in league of legends? have I cured cancer

: Well list any game. CS:GO has 90 minute long matches where people literally watch you play via deathcam and enormous pressure. Still not close to League. I do contend that voice chat would yield less toxicity in League. Others disagree. If you can put a person behind the avatar it helps a bit. But people do rage over voice too. No game is free of it, but League is at least 100% more toxicity than DOTA from my experience. I'm about the same skill rating in both games, so same sorts of players.

I'm about the same skill rating in both games, so same sorts of players. again, voice chat, the only games that successfully circumvent toxicity are games that don't allow any form of in game chat look at old Unreal Tournament, you'd see the most vile venomous shit after the match in chat but you could just leave and ignore it easily

I'd bee down with stricter matchmaking during promos though, waiting an extra minute for a more balanced game I'd fine by me. i am HARD smurfing on this account and trust me they TRY to fuck with you, i tested into silver 2 somehow going 8-2 in provisionals and skyrocketed right through to gold 5 promos, for the first time in 9 years of playing i got a yi top, and i got one 3 games in a row that hard inted and still had to carry it getting 20-30 kills per game to do so, they are definitely trying to fuck you over and then letting you through with that free win crap i will admit it doesn't feel as bad in high gold + as it does in silver / low gold
: Riot: What are you doing to fix the toxicity in the DNA of the player base?
DoTA has in game voice chat and more people are afraid to say things, but you still hear it, still better than league overwatch games are shorter, less time for anger to grow, and they know they're not stuck there for 30 minutes losing fucking HARD when some idiot is inting 1 kill per 1-2 minutes
: I Quit league Keep crushing people whit your Smurf Account its Really fun !
might be one in like 1/20 games, and in 1/5 maybe a gold player that is playing a little under where they can get, gotta git gud
