: How do you even play against Tryndamere
Understand what his strengths are (dueling an split pushing) and what his weakness are (team fights). To beat him either do what he does better (example pick Jax, outplay him, out split push him) or punish his weaknesses (pick a hard engage champ like kled and force 5v4s while he is split pushing, and take objectives when you win fights). If he gets to pick after you and it’s a bad matchup? Don’t try to kill him 1v1. He is melee and very kite able. Play safe and look for opportunities to impact other parts of the map just like in any bad matchup. He is really a poorly designed champ and is usually a liability to his own team unless he manages to get mega fed or if the opponent doesn’t deal with his split push well. If you are having a lot of trouble with him, spam some games on him and watch the replays particularly of your losses/bad games to see what your opponents did to shut you down, and try to do the same things in your own games.
: Should there be a minimum amount of games required before you can take a champ into ranked?
It’s an argument people don’t like to hear, but since there are 4 other people on your team, and 5 on the other team, in the long run, your rank is improved by other people doing this, since the chances are higher that the person first timing a champ will be on the other team. It may be frustrating when it happens to you and you lose because of it, but oh well, half the players in every game lose, play the next one and over time you will win more games than people who do stupid stuff like that.
: 7 wins in a row, only +14 LP in Silver IV and still matchmade with Bronze 2 avg rank. Bug?
This is a case of mmr being low for your rank. Just keep playing and focusing on improving, if you are better than the people you are playing against, your rank will go up.

: I am not a ADC main or high ranked player, but as a support main I understand how hard it is for adc+supp to play when they're behind. So I think I can share some things I do: * I ward a lot and I buy few {{item:2055}} whenever I can; I have {{item:3364}} too so, surprise ganks are very less. Ask your support to do this and always play in safe zones; safe zones are areas where you can farm safely and no threat of opponents attacking you. {{champion:51}} has her W to cover some possible ways opponents will come by, so use it to the fullest. It reveals the opponents getting trapped, so will be better against stealth champions. * {{item:3111}}{{item:3047}} {{item:3139}} {{item:3046}} {{item:3156}} {{item:3026}} are some items to be built against heavy ap/ad compositions and in general build things that makes you not getting insta-deleted. Being behind adc is probably the easiest target to get kills off, so don't be that adc who builds full ad or crit and die often before even getting 3-4 attacks. * Follow team; don't push alone, beyond vision lines and try to play around objectives. I often find my adc running into enemy territory after T1 tier to farm with no vision in their jg and it is basically inviting opponents for free gold. While drake spawns, or baron is to be taken try to be near it so that it can be taken faster. * Be the annoying backline, who does damage and goes back to safe place before opponents can react. Assassins will be targeting you, so always keep safe distance between you and them. {{champion:222}} can snowball well, so all it takes is 1 or 2 good fights and once she is excited she can just run down opponents and for Cait, always try to get the head shot on squishy champs and not tanks. With more damage, they can't jump in to kill you first and with your backing off, force them to play in disadvantage of hp always. * Ping your cc ability and always chain cc whenever support or someone roots/stuns someone; both Jinx and Cait has root and a slow-so make sure to show opponents that if they get hit by any cc it is going to be trouble for them. I played {{champion:143}} {{champion:518}} {{champion:111}} and every time I get {{champion:51}} {{champion:202}} it is lot easier because 1-2 second root suddenly becomes 3 second root and with my ultimate I can prolong it to 4-5 seconds. For Zyra and Neeko they have multi hit root on E, Naut is tanky ball who can hook and root 1 target opponent and can root nearby opponents with passive; Zyra, Naut have multi hit knockup with R and Neeko has stun-so as long as they stay in range, the cc chain on one target is sure death. With R you can clean up from far away, so can actually stay back after fights and let team mates chase. * Last tip is to mute chat, don't get frustrated or tilted because someone is flaming/blaming or you're behind. Try to be useful in different ways and you can always see map for tracking opponents, to ping/warn for gank/ambush or taking a drake/going for baron kind of shot-callings, which will improve your macro knowledge as well as help team mates.

Very helpful comment, thank you!
: Usually the remaining options for getting fed is either taking kills (which is unlikely if you're behind) or just tryna farm it out. If your support doesn't do so proactively, you may need to take extensive warding into your own hands but still do so at your own risk since ADCs when behind are basically like wet 1 ply tissue paper
Thank you for your reply. I guess that’s more or less what I try to do, I probably forget about the vision game when I get behind though so that’s a good point. I should probably just avoid the role, but I get baited into thinking I’m good at it by those games I get auto filled adc and randomly go like 15/2/15 or something.

So 40 to 50 armour is a bigger difference than 100 to 110 I have to jump in and correct this/make sure you meant something else. Resistances do not have diminishing returns. Ignoring penetration/reduction, 1 point of armor will ALWAYS increase one's effective health against physical damage by 1% of one's total health. While the numerical value of the percent reduction goes up more slowly as resistances increase, the significance of changes in numerical value also go up. Going from 0% reduction (0 armor) to 50% reduction (100 armor) provides the exact same benefit as going from 50% reduction (100 armor) to 66.67% reduction (200 armor). If that's what you meant, that's fine. I've spent many years trying to quelch the incorrect idea of resistances (and things that use the same or a similar formula) having diminishing returns (in multiple games), so I have to pounce when I see the idea potentially being thought and spread.
: It's percentage based with a diminishing effect. So 40 to 50 armour is a bigger difference than 100 to 110
On an effective health basis, armor does not give diminishing returns. +1 armor gives + 1% effective health. Ignoring armor reduction stats because they just complicate the calculation. Say you start with 0 armor and 1000hp It will take 1000 base damage to kill you Add 50 armor and plug this into the resistance formula and you get receive 67% of the base damage, meaning it will take 1500 base damage to kill you, a 500 increase in effective hps. Add another 50 and you will receive 50% of the base damage, meaning it will take 2000 base damage to kill you. So the additional armor still added 500 effective hps even though you went from 50-100 instead if 0-50
: Armor and Magic Resist Questions
Damage = base damage * 100/(100 + resistance) Or if resistance is negative Damage = base damage * (2 - 100/(100 - resistance)) Resistance = (base resistance - flat shred) * (100% - %shred)/100% * (100% - %pen)/100% - flat pen

It isn't just huhi, Aurelion Sol is considered one of the S tier midlaners at worlds, he was disabled for most of the first week due to a visual bug but is expected to see a lot more play (already 2wins 0losses 2bans) now that the bug is fixed

You should watch the [CLG vs ROX game](http://www.lolesports.com/en_US/worlds/world_championship_2016/matches/group_a/CLG-vs-ROX). Huhi will show you the power of the God Dragon.

: Next season Pink Wards will no longer reveal a lot of "In-Combat" Stealth abilities
Simply dropping a ward during combat is not a very interestingly form of counter play. This is obviously a big buff to stealth champions but power can always be removed from other parts of there kits and I think will leave them in an overall better spot in terms of balancing around the mechanic.

: It feels like Riot is being controlled by another company...
: The whole Morgana and Kayle morale views remind me of the Shin Megami Tensei series of Law and Chaos. Kayle represents Law while Morgana represents Chaos(Absolute freedom at the cost of a world where the strong survive and the weak perish.) Would it be possible of Riot to create another champion that comes from the same world as Kayle and Morgana but represents Neutrality?
Any old RuneScape players here? This debate reminds me of the old Saradomin (Law) vs Zamorak (Chaos) threads on the rs forums. They also had Guthix (Balance) who basically made the others his bitches.

: As opposed to just champions overall?
Yeah It would be cool to know how good I am at different roles for different champs. For instance I play Cho top and mid, luckily he is in my top three for both lanes so I got to see that I have a better kda top lane, but a worse win percentage. I don't know how complicated splitting the rating would be but I would be nice to see champions different stats for different roles, the way you do in the overview tab, just expanded for all champs not just the top 3 in each role. again really love the site, and I can't wait to see what else you do with it.

: The Elise Buff on PBE...
if it is now 1.5 seconds at all ranks she now can put more points into her damage spells earlier in the game because 1 point in E will be the same stun as 5 points in E. Pretty decent buff to her early-mid game.

: But if he procs Blood Price every other attack, he'll also *take* damage faster. And less of it will be compensated by lifesteal; you can't lifesteal from Phantom Hit because it only triggers on-hits, *not* your actual Attack Damage. Still useful in the right situation, though, and he does like the stats.

If you are looking for your Caps Lock key, go to the bottom left of your keyboard. That should be the Ctrl key, above that is the Shift key, and right above that is the Caps Lock key. If you have a mac it will still be the third up from the bottom left of your keyboard, do not get confused by the fact the the fn key is now in the bottom left, the one above it is still Shift, and the one above that is still the Caps Lock key. Hope this helps!

: Good luck. I've been playing for about a year and a half, have made it up to gold 2 this season but can't seem to get past gold 3-2 (keep dropping, going back up, dropping). I really want to hit plat but this seems to keep happening: "Nice, 5 wins in a row I'm carrying a lot, oh I made it into my series again. 2 out 3 should be easy." Queue people trolling/afking/playing well below what the tier would imply. Every series. It make you dread going into series even after win streaks. Sure, it's "bad luck" when that happens. But it's also just a really terrible system that doesn't even make sense mathematically, it requires you to have 66% win rate (much higher than what it takes to gradually climb) in a course of 3 games which is too small a sample to show any kind of trend. And if you fail it, it drops you way down again. Basically, climbing up the ladder requires skill, but suddenly you hit your series and it's all about luck. I don't know why you would design a competitive ladder like that.
I know the feel. This was the third time I hit my Gold promotion series. The first time I went 2-0 and then lost about 10 straight games and fell all the way down to S2. After climbing back up for the second time I won my first game then lost two straight, then had to leave the next game due to an IRL emergency. Got my third series just a few games later and was finally able to push through 3-0.

I've been absolutely in love with the champ ever since Bjerg was wrecking faces with him in the LCS last year. He just naturally fits my play style, and I don't think he is that much weaker than the FOTM mid laners like your posts seems to imply.

: Nothing more beautiful then the glory when you reach gold. Felt it too. Until you queue for the first game in gold.... Good luck, gold is one of the thougtest division to pass by, high silver was pretty neat, because people knew they werent that good, so they played in team, but in gold, they only play Kata/LeBlanc/Zed and always go solo and then blame you for that. Anyway, congrats for gold, hope you get luckier I am currently :)
Played three games so far, people seem pretty much the same, though a tad more eager to beat up on a player who is having a bad game. (My last graves game was pretty rough, but that's what the mute button is for am I right?)
