: The counter to assassins like that is grouping and positioning, they rely heavily on making picks

Buy a Cloth Armor. Armor is spectacular against Shadow Assassin and it's why Shadow Assassin is the wrong choice.

Armor is spectacular against Shadow Assassin and it's why Shadow Assassin is the wrong choice. While buying armor would be the logical thing to do if your getting one shot, buying armor against a kayn with lethality isn't going to do much maybe ill live 0.15 sec longer? oh but what about buying hp? sadly, their are no good diversity options for ap items that give hp, ap, and armor. the only good item to build for ap mages (who I play exclusively) is zhonyas and that doesn't even give hp but 1 item isn't going to make the kayn have trouble killing you; you'll only be holding off the inevitable by a few seconds.

Just came back from my check-up with my doctor and it turns out I have TMS (toxic mobility syndrome) he says the best course of action is to get lube or afk, since it's incurable.....worst thing is that he said that he's seeing cases of TMS pop up all over the flat earth. please pray for people who have TMS it's an serious issue.

: I would have to see you playing in game to really see what's going on. It looks like you have quite a lot of deaths in most if not all your games, maybe that's partly due to poor teammates, but seeing that you consistently have a lot of deaths even on winning games, it might be suggesting something. I see that you like Brand, it's a pretty good support carry champ. Have you tried Xerath? It's my primary go-to support champ when I'm playing in lower ELO. Look up Zwag on YouTube, he's the best Xerath player and you'll learn plenty from him. Feel free to add me - Bot Zilean, maybe we can chat and I could give you some pointers.

I like to play ap mage, and most my deaths come from group phase when i gotta worry about the mid/top/jg (which ever one my teammate(s) dies to every 2mins) focusing me cause i'm usually the one with the kills. being an ap mage i only make it easier for them in this meta and don't do myself justice. it usually tends to be impossible to carry at 18mins into the game as i can get killed in less than a second (0.17sec fastest i got killed few games ago) and have no team to back me up most of the time.

First of all no one would ever survive gaming online if they didn't already do that, the fact is that riot letting these people say whatever mean spirited statement they come up with and don't have to worry about any repercussions. Idk how many times someone said some gay slur or saying someone should of been aborted cause they're not having fun in the game and so when everyone reports the person after the game I never get any feedback anymore for anything. This gives a bad name to the league community which is already know to be toxic af. also makes the reporting system feels useless as much as trying to comeback from a snowballed game.

idk how many times someone would call someone a gay slur or just have the most disgusting attitude that you can imagine and have everyone else in that game report them and not even get a feedback... this garbage system that's supposed to keep the community in check has no impact on the community. good job league another well done job at creating a system. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}

: People keep screaming censorship... Honestly, one of the biggest reasons Riot and Blizzard (and other companies) prevent representatives from speaking out about this is for those people's own safety. While your random Joe Schmoe saying something about it isn't likely to draw government attention, someone of "power" - be it an influencer (youtuber/instagrammer/etc), a professional athlete (not even highest level, just any in general), etc.... that person is going to be on the radar of the government officials. The situation (without getting too political) is such that someone may be arrested and detained for an indefinite period of time if China can get their hands on them. I guarantee you that these sorts of "extrajudicial detainment" have already happened to individuals in China/HK who have spoken out against the actions of China (or, by extension, in support of HK). So no, it's not censorship for the sake of being a jerk or trying to please someone - the biggest thing is the safety of League of Legends players who are representing the game on a large scale.

They can probably code it as a side project for like a couple of weeks at most and have it done (idk coding so I could be way off lol), Anyways the longest part would be the implementation of it, would they do it in pbe first? who knows. also would take a few weeks for the feedback results and consider it a feature to keep or trash it. league had years of having the chance to implement it (they released push to talk for premades, but not for randoms in game), which makes you think that they either thought about it and decided to not pursue it or take their sweet sweet time.

: Voice chat in ranked
Really how are you sure? cause whenever I use 3rd party programs and i'm talking to randoms the worst ill get is constructive criticism which isn't bad at all I know the community is quite toxic compared to the average game but I think that's leagues own doing cause of never implemented the human element in my opinion and I think its very much the case here. people can just type whatever stupid shit they want in chat with 0 consequence it seems now. Too put it as that everyone seems to be mental and be toxic over the mic is quite ridiculous people wont say the same shit they would in text 100% guarantee you on that. that's why you see a lot of harmful hate speech in text and only a fraction of that margin (extremists if you will) would actually go as far as saying it out loud.

: LP splashing details
I've seen people say u cant enter promos but you can demote from splashing but honestly from my personal experience i haven't touched top in like 60 games and i've been sitting at 0 lp for many of those games and haven't demoted from a lose yet. So from personal experiance I believe splashing doesn't get you into promos as well as it doesn't demote you.
: 7-1 in placements with 2 wins after (9-1) But im not skipping divisions?
I was p3 last season and got placed in g4. after my placement I went on to win 21/24 games (had a 12 game winstreak) and be suprised that for every game I won I was only gaining 17-18 lp lol all in total it only got me to g2. I know it has to do with the algorithm riot uses has some kinks with new positional ranked. edit: i have noticed that this season you gain a lot less LP per win I gain 17-18 lp every single game which is quite different from last season where I was gaining around 21-24lp a win

Absolutely I could. I would need a ton of free time to devise a win contribution algorithm even more sophisticated than my original concept that wound up becoming champion mastery post game scores and I would need to be paid for providing that service, but 100% I could perform that task if I was given the resources and access to 10 years of gaming data. Every sport in the world now uses this style of analytics to evaluate players and the data is clear that this is the absolute best way to go about it. We don't have such a thing for League mostly due to apathy on the part of Riot. They are fine evaluating pro play in such a fashion because people like Jatt did all that work for them out of love for the game. I gotta be honest, now that he's joined Riot I feel like the time is now to make use of his ideal skill set for this endeavor.

Hey, if you can devise a better algorithm than what the physicist Arpad Elo made back in 1960's then you surely got a future in applied math's if that's what you love. i'm sure it's more complicated in league now that they have positional ranking and probably distorts the outcome of games now in other ways, like i'm not sure of the implications of "splashing" Lp can have effect on this. my guess would be that it polarizes the outcomes of games even more now and also creates more headaches for the mathematicians lol.

: No, for one simple reason: Because of "splashing," your rank is not a proper representation of your skill in that role. It can't possibly be, because you're losing/gaining elo in that role without actually playing it. It's season 6 all over again. And if I subscribe to the idea that positional ranked without splashing can be too easily exploited/abused, then the whole concept becomes a pointless catch-22. It was self-defeating right out of the gate as it was presented.
true i dont like the splashing since you can demote from it but not promote off it lol. And positional ranked can be exploited by switching your role with a duo so your playing off roles so you get placed against a a lower elo laner and will just stomp them and gain lp for your main role. (could be patched by now but i'm not sure lol) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctLLiRuU4pM This video touches on a lot about positional ranked issues and the abuse people do to boost their ranks.
: Option 4: Yes but not the way it's currently implemented. Positional ranking is a great idea but it's just implemented poorly. How it can be better idk but I like the idea.
Ya probably should of added that wasn't think that at the time. I agree with you on positional ranked. I just wish they put out a video or some post somewhere explaining positional ranked more in depth and where its at in its current state and what the intend to do with it. Cause riot hasn't said anything about ranked for like over a month now.
: Should have had an option for indifferent. I love the idea of it but in reality, I don't mind either system. Either ranked system is fine with me.
that sorta falls in the i don't know category if you ask me lol

: mmr master buggy?
When i started playing ranked literally right once s9 started i won 21/24 games after placements had 12 win streak and was only gaining 18lp for each win but was losing around 20-22lp a game it didnt skip me a tier. and now i'm stuck with gaining +18 or 17+ a game and just doesn't move no matter what. i was placed in gold 4. the 21 wins out of 24 games only got me to g2 50 lp which is bit ridiculous if you ask me. And i believe its the WHOLE system not just master that is feeling this issue.

Sukishoo (NA)
: The LP is NOT being split to other roles though. You are still gaining 18-20 in a win which means you are generally where you are supposed to be for that ranking. The others roles get a splash of 3 to help them climb because Riot wanted there to be an incentive for off roles. It's really unlikely that you'd be getting 23 a game, when you can get super high things like 60-70 in Placements and then it drops back down to the 18-20 range. I gain 30 points a win because I'm below my range of where I've been in the past, so that's why mine would gain more and then decline as I got closer.
i was gaining 21-24 lp a win at p3 last season. this season is a god dam mess i was placed in gold 4 and won 21/24 games and guess what i was only gaining 18lp and less in some and really lost hope of ever seeing my lp gain go higher than 18 after winning 12 games in a row and still would just give me 17-18 lp

: Positional Ranked Hurts
I feel you i started this season off very strong as expect cause i was p3 last season and got placed in gold 4. i played all my games in the support role. and i literally won 21/24 games (had 12 game winstreak but was getting 18 lp each game and didnt skip a tier lmfao) and i only got gold 2 and 50ish lp from my original placement of gold 4. and then i started playing all my other roles and got them to the same rank cause i was sick of having to carry games as brand support since its still sometimes very hard even tho im 4x better than what i get paired against. since ppl dont understand how to not die every 2mins in lane phase. Now im gold 4 in ALL my ranks and i'm now stuck in an elo i really dont belong in but teammates are keeping me in cause they feed their asses off and don't care since most time ill have just 1 guy (and thats all it takes to throw the game) who gets placed in off role and just doesn't care cause hes only losing 3 lp off his overall rank. this system is not logical atleast not for the average solo queue player which league has millions of.

: Can someone explain Riot's matchmaking system ranked.
Quick explaination: some team of geniuses at riot thought...hey! our ranked system sorta forces people to specialize in one role and being trash at others. BING BANGO BONGO BOOM here comes in positional ranked system. Naturally, they figured that making ranked into 5 different categories will get people to play different roles lmfao. Except that's not the case. they basically reinvented ranked but kept everything same and made subtle changes as to be expected although i cant see how they can rationally keep this going. Postional ranked now throws more games than I can count. cause all I see in chat is "Atleast it's not my main rank" cause really who the fuck cares if you lose a 30-50min game in an off rank your only losing like 3 lp in your main its like dodging....And people are exploiting this shitty system
