: Traps are outrageous. Giving ADCs long duration hard CC is suspect enough-- but allowing so many out at once, and giving them such bad hitboxes (still less bad than Jinx's, but still) is too much.
First, it's not like the traps are hard to avoid. You see a trap, you step around it. Easy. Second, the hit-box on Cait's/Jinx's traps are not bad at all. You literally have to step on them for the trap to be triggered. Where are you getting the idea that the hit-boxes are bad?
: you killed her.... god damnit rito.
I have been seeing a lot of Anivia mains have success with her in the top lane. A semi-tanky mage build works great. And since most top laners are mele, her short range burst combo works amazing. I haven't played it myself, but I have seen what it can do and it's scary.
: I'd take a rager over an afker and an afker over a feeder
And Tyler1 covers all three roles almost every game. First he rages, then he'll feed, then eventually he'll feed. Still loved watching him though. Dude was a straight up entertainer.

: Did we release a new pay to win feature I wasn't aware of? Cuz just this morning the game was 100% free.
You're ignorant if you don't realize how much money RIOT (and now Tencent) brings in from LoL. Between in game purchases and LCS they are making more money than they know what to do with. Yes, the game is free to download and play, but I'm willing to bet a large majority of the player base has spent money on league at some point.
: it is that complicated when every game im being matched with a 2, 3, or 4man premade every game of which i despise every last one of them for making terrible decisions or ignore anyone not named part of their group. in addition they're supposedly placed accurately, im improving and climbing, i can never take them with me so i will forever limit myself to 50% win rate if i play with others. the only person im comfortable queuing up with is my twin of which we take both carry roles and we have a staggeringly high win rate together, we obv communicate and work well together. the only 2 games we lost were when we were paired with 3 mans and they outright ignored us and our decisions, good luck carrying a game without your carries..... ranked is not a place for dynamic queue. how about you take your 4 friends and make a ranked team together, see how this works both ways. i dont get stuck with **you or your friends**, and i dont have to waste your time by dodging. ez pz.
I play solo. It doesn't bother me getting teamed up with premades. I was just simply suggesting that if you have an issue with the premades, get a premade of your own. Do that and you won't have anything else to worry about.
: Yes, but... In a soccer game, if one side cant field a full team, theyre not forced to play with less players... so there is NO game, and it therefore cant be a good game. In league, being down a player isnt a game either, its an irritating waste of time often, and no part of it is good for the 4 man side. I get where your coming from, and adding a sorry is way better than most do, but instead... Just try typing "sorry bout the dc/troll" only, and leave the gg out cause it always sounds bad to say "good" game to someone who is annoyed at the 20 minute time waste they most certainly thought was bad.
Technically the only time they don't play the game is if a team can't field a full team before the start of the game. If, at any point during the game, circumstances force a team to have less players (injuries, ejections due to red cards, ect...) the team is still required to finish the game with less players.
: dodging is too necessary, if anything we need more stable team mates with whom we can be matched with again and again in order to give good viable partners/teams. i can assure you, im not sticking around if the teams are (us) {{champion:223}} top, {{champion:103}} me mid, {{champion:81}} + {{champion:43}} bot, {{champion:121}} jungle. im sorry but this team has no initiation and is going to be dominated by (them) {{champion:245}} top, {{champion:238}} mid, {{champion:236}} + {{champion:111}} bot, {{champion:102}} jungle i find 3 or 4 members with "XxSUX" (just a generic clan tag) next to their name tag and i searched their names on naopgg and i find someone well below my league, say silver 1, im dodging on the spot because i already know were going up against some plat premade instead and going to get rekt. --------------------------------------------------- so yes, thank you for your 14th game of nidalee with 2wins + 12losses. really, thank you, it was so great of you to pick this champion again blindly first pick in ranked. thank you for playing your 8th game with BUDDYS NAME HERE and having a 25% win rate together. its ranked, so why not, keep doing it. you dont have to play meta, but you cant be throwing the game away doing whatever it is you want to do. you people outright bring the wrong mindset into ranked and i have the right to choose not to play with you.
I've got a good solution for you. You had mentioned "we need more stable team mates with whom we can be matched with again and again". Riot is encouraging you to play with friends. Find people you enjoy playing with/win with. Find those people and group up, and BINGO, you now have more stable team mates with whom you can match up with again and again. It's not that complicated.
: What do you call a basketball player who believes Riven and Lee Sin are op? LeBronze James
Read this and instantly started laughing my ass off at work. You're crappy (yet hilarious) joke might get me fired. Totally worth.
: About a month ago I had amazing synergy with a Naut support when I played as Kalista. The guy hit EVERY dredge line and he got me so fed that despite playing against a Morg and Jhin bot lane and getting hit with a binding, the Naut hit the Jhin with the dredge line allowing me to constantly auto him and the morg since I had Runaans and life steal. I got a double and immediately the other team surrendered. I have NEVER had that much synergy with a random before and it was great.
Him getting you fed isn't synergy. That's him being a god teir supp and carrying you to glory. If he wasn't hitting every dredge line, that lane probably goes to Morg and Jhin and you would have been flaming Naut.
: Can I point out that before you relied entirely on being a quicker typer or being listed higher? Also I find it a bit insane that you stop queueing up for Supp entirely. Why not just queue up for it when you feel like you want to play it?
Because the only time I want to play it is when I can't get ADC. If I can't have ADC, I'd prefer to play supp. But now I've been playing a lot more top and jung because they work better for me as a secondary. I get ADC like 85% of the time.
: It doesn't really ccreate a shortage. When you want to play supp, put it in there as a secondary. When you don't, then don't. The most logical choice would to have your primary and secondary be positions that (in the match that the game is searching for) you don't really mind either, but prefer the first.
In the old champ select, I would go ADC whenever possible. If someone picked ADC before me I would instantly fall back to SUPP. I got ADC like 60% of the time and SUPP the other 40% (rough numbers here). In the new champ select I'd queue up as BOT primary and SUPP secondary. I stopped doing that after a couple of weeks because I was playing 90% SUPP and getting BOT like 10% of the time (again, rough numbers). This is the issue. Too many people are like me and have stopped queuing up for SUPP secondary because it becomes your primary. It is creating a shortage. Big time.
: I was a support main before S6 started...
The issue isn't with support mains. It's with people like me who enjoy playing support, but don't main support. In an ideal world, I would queue up as Bot for my primary role, and Support as my secondary role. Issue is, if I did this, I would never get to play my main, so I've completely given up on playing support this season. Kind of sad really, I liked playing support, but I definitely don't want to play it every single game. I just want to have the best of both worlds. 65% of my games as ADC, 35% as support. I'd be happy with that.
: No, you made a terrible assumption by trying to gap unknown data. I had played quite a bit of ranked 2 seasons ago, but had had little success due to my previous skill level. I spent last season really honing my skills and learning how to be successful, and I've done pretty well as a result. But if you can't recognize that premades in the most basic sense are inherently broken, then there will be no way to logic with you any further. The coordination and heavy camping a single lane receives is more than enough evidence. Even at gold, players who play like this shouldn't be here. Quite a few of the groups I play with use better tactics than their rank would suggest, this far into the season would imply smurfing and subsequent boosting.
I rarely play ranked. I obviously dabble a little here and there, but for the most part, I just stick to Normals. Always have. I've played more ranked this season than in the past, and I've had no issues climbing. In my opinion, it seems easier this season.
: Riot uses the use of the DQ system as evidence that people like it. Personally I don't like it at all past the champion select that came with it. However I decided right before it was released, I was going to try to climb this season. Which I've been finding harder and harder that more pre-mades I've played against. I think the easiest way to solve all of this crap on both sides, make a damn poll. RIGHT ON THE FRONT OF THE DAMN LAUNCHER. Alright job done, we can all go home now. But for whatever reason, riot can't just program a poll that takes probably 5 minutes at most due to the information already existing.

You just contradicted yourself. You mentioned that you "decided right before it was released, I was going to try to climb this season.", which suggests you never really played ranked before. Then said "Which I've been finding harder and harder that more pre-mades I've played against." If you've never really played ranked and tried to climb before, how do you know it's harder this season because of pre-mades?

: Can we please make the client pop up when it's your turn to ban
1) The client does pop up. If it doesn't for you, it's not RIOTS problem. Your computer is probably bugged or you need to repair your LoL client. 2) Don't bitch at RIOT because you can't take 2 minutes out of your day to pay attention to your client man. It's not hard man. Real simple concept.

: There is a severe lack of clarity though. A "double kill bot" could simply be a cleanup, especially because it was on the ADC and*Jungler* so it was probably from a failed gank with all their spells on cooldowns. It's the adc too, an assassins combo will kill them most of the time. It's very probably that these two champs weren't even at full hp. The intentional vagueness in the op makes me very skeptical that this post's purpose was nothing more than an attempt at upvotes from all the Zed haters out there. Bottom line is, there is an abundance of perfectly balanced situations where a mobile assassin such as Zed could get a double kill from 0/4, it really isn't that uncommon, especially if they are a good player. Some may argue "oh he couldn't have been a good player because he was 0/4 in lane" but those players don't understand how vastly different laning phase is from the rest of the game And oh boy, he didn't even mention *team comp*. This is the game he is probably referring to: http://matchhistory.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/NA1/2155972878/208472806?tab=overview No support/exhaust with 3 heals (so no summoners that counter Zed). No AP which allows him to scale incredibly fast due to itemization(unless you want to count the Malphite trying to build RoA 38mins into the game lol) Only 1 form of heavy cc that is easily dodged/avoided No TP to help pressure lanes And he lied about his qss, it was his 3rd item built at nearly 28mins into the game (well after Zed got ult) and the only other qss bought was from Lucian at nearly the 34min mark Their team was a mess and it isn't surprising they lost, every member of the enemy team did well You can't trust people on the boards nowadays :/
Reported my reply huh? Haha. Classic.

People need to stop blaming RIOT for everything. It won't hurt you to take an extra three minutes out of your day to pay attention to your client. I don't think you read the part where he said his client did not pop up. This has happened to me too sometimes where it just loads as a black screen.
He meant pop-up as in he was on a different window on his computer while champ select was going. He was on the internet or doing something other than watching select. He mentioned he had already pre-picked his champ, so it's not a matter of getting a black screen. He just completely disregarded champ select and had to pay the price. Your situation is very different. I've never seen/heard of that happening.

: wrong, the client ALWAYS came up in S5 so why not make it the same way in S6?
The client does pop up in S6. I've never once had a problem with the client not popping back up. And even if it doesn't, the client starts pinging at you around the 10 second mark if you haven't locked anything in yet. So in order for you to miss your pick, you have to be trying real hard to ignore the client. You hear the countdown, you open up the client, you hit lock because you already pre picked your champ. It's not that difficult folks. Stop blaming/bitching at RIOT to fix something when YOU are the thing that is broken.

Here's an idea, actually pay attention to your client. If winning your promos is a big deal to you, then it won't hurt for you to actually pay attention.

: Does it ever feel like All Random All Mid (ARAM), doesn't feel random at all?
One of my favorite parts of ARAM is getting those "boring" champs. ARAM is the perfect place to try crazy new builds to see what will work and what won't. Granted you will always have those try-hards that expect you to follow 'normal' build paths with your champion.
: fiora's really really healthy
I used to priority ban Fiora every game. Then I heard about this thing called full tank Akali. Now, I beg to be in lane against a Fiora because the lane is an easy win for me. But alas, I have a feeling that the tank Akali nerfs are coming shortly.
: In my eyes, that's a good idea. It would indeed remove a lot of the frustration both sides feel.
I personally think this is a terrible idea. This is a game of skill. Adding all these little indicators takes away from that skill. This game is constantly getting dumbed down day after day. Just look at the state of the game today. There is almost no skill involved. Get ahead early, land massive burst combo mid-game, win because of shit towers and long death timers. We no longer have to keep track of dragon or baron timers, we have buff timers, we can now see when the other team is going to respawn. I remember having to keep track of all that while playing. It's starting to feel like this game takes no skill to play now.

Go put 30% lifesteal on ANY adc, or go warlords + 10-15% lifesteal, and please tell me how you cant facetank a tank with an ADC? Its far from an exaggeration. Corki, Vayne, Trist, Lucian, even Cait just to name a few, can facetank, and when that isnt necessary, they simply kite. There is no solid tank that can stand to an ADC And thats because lifesteal in this ADC meta is rediculous
Top tank Akali. She puts out tons of damage with out having to build any damage items. She has her spell vamp. Her build makes her tanky as hell. ADCs don't stand a chance against her.

: I see how you could make that connection, but you are missing a few key parts of the riddle. Nearly every word in the riddle is intentional. I guess I have a knack for riddle writing because it only took me about an hour, maybe an hour and a half.
Can you answer me one small question? Was I write about you looking for a series of names? You keep mentioning a game of names in the riddle, but the fact that Kat and Heim's word could be considered one still makes me think that you are looking for a sentence or phrase.

: Want a gift mystery skin? Solve my riddle. First person to post the answer gets a mystery skin gift.
First off, props on that riddle. You must have spent some time on that. This forum has been bugging me this entire week. Been trying so hard to get this figured out but can't. I'm going to throw out a guess though. It's a game of names, so I'm going to take that as you're looking for character names. I'm leaning towards batman characters for a few reasons. One, Kat looks a lot like Quinn in the picture. Two, in WW's part you talk about being tame during the day but a beast at night...Batman. The others, just random guesses. Penguin Batman Harley Quinn Riddler Joker Probably way off, but figured I'd throw it out there.
: Season 6 In A Nutshell
I started Bronze 5 last season, worked my way up to Bronze 1 (I don't play ranked too often, it's too toxic for me). This season I went 4-6 in my placement games and ended up in Bronze 4. I don't get it. With plats and golds getting dropped into Silver I was positive I'd get placed in Wood 13. Maybe this season I'll actually try to rank up instead of just playing norms.
