: What do I do against someone who stays under tower?
: Banning Ally's Pick
Depends on the pick order. If you're not an early pick, it makes sense. 1. Not a ton of people have brand new champs to be able to swap with you. 2. They are typically always picked after release if only for novelty.

: What if Tryndamere became uncontrolable during his ult
On one hand that would be awesome. On the other hand LoL has way too many dashes for that to work well. And also, Leagues pathing and AI might literally be the worst.
: What should I do when our jg is too heavy?
Last hit at tower, melee minions are two tower shots and an autoattack to finish, caster minions are 1 auto, 1 tower, 1 auto. Ward backdoor jungle route. This is probably a low Elo thing, as I am a scrub, but farming at the tower drives your lane opponent nuts typically and they'll almost always try to be slick and dive, which results in easy kills.

Bruh there's people who have been banned for saying gg ez ... Personally I think Riot should show everyone an instructional video on how to use mute when they report someone for verbal abuse.
: time to punish afk junglers
If you have a problem with junglers, then play jungle. Also, I find it funny you accuse people who jungle as not being able to lane, meanwhile you're whole post is a QQ that your jungler's life doesn't revolve around you and your lane.

I'm not really blaming them for anything, it's a simple fact; smurfs are rampant at low ranks. Their existence there makes those low ranks miserable, and makes players who just want to enjoy a decent constantly put in toxic and unfair situations. But low ranks don't matter because.... reasons? Low elo doesn't matter bcs the players can't play the game, why should anyone care about someone who is doing something wrongly and is probably ignorant towards advices and learning how to play better. In your few last games, there is fair amount of "smurfs"(acc without history from previous seasons), but their winrate is highly questionable, so I would argue that they might be new players. What I wanted to say is, if you have 114 games with 37% winrate, you should probably look for mistakes in your self, eventually even learn something from these smurfs, unless you are smurf yourself, then you should be reported and banned. Dia smurf probably won't even start in your elo unless he is trolling. Those who are losing to derank should be reported to support and they will most likely be banned again and again, but players are lazy to create tickets :/

I get tilted too easily. If we have an advantage and aren't pushing objectives I get impatient and try to force them, hoping my teammates will follow (they don't). If we're losing early on, I need to learn to play safely and stop trying to make plays out of desperation. I need to work on my laning against certain champs. Possibly my biggest issue is I have too much reverence of certain late gate champions and play overly aggressive because I've already deemed the game a loss if it lasts 25+ minutes. I'm positive there's plenty more, point being I have a pretty good idea of what I need to work on. > Dia smurf probably won't even start in your elo unless he is trolling. > > Those who are losing to derank should be reported to support and they will most likely be banned again and again, but players are lazy to create tickets :/ I do report and create tickets as often as merited. Unfortunately, anyone who has played the game a bit -- as most with smurfs have -- knows how to troll and throw without being blatant. I've played with teammates who have a great KD, but will avoid objectives and teamfights like the plague so the team loses: a quick glance at their recent games and you'll see they've lost 20 of 20 all while maintaining stellar stats, at this point it's logical to deduce they are actively trying to lose while essentially being unreportable. Plenty of people will flat out tell you they are smurfing, why wouldn't they? It's not any sort of violation at all. And yes, sometimes people lie or they'll exaggerate their main's ranked, but if they are telling you they are a smurf and then go 22/2 they probably don't belong in Bronze. I've encountered several Twitch streamers in my games that have deranked a smurf for the "luls". Now this is mostly a gamble, half the time they'll be on your team and do amazing for the fun of it, the other half they'll be intentionally throwing so they can maintain their low rank.

: This game is just so frustrating
Honestly, this game is awful. It makes people who play it feel awful. Riot as a developer is awful at responding to its community. I have no clue why I haven't quit it all together. Maybe I stick around for love of the genre or maybe it's just pure habit.

I honestly don't even understand why Voli is being looked at, I know he's not popular, but there are a lot of worse off champions.

: This game needs to take a step back into team play
I blame the lack of voice chat. Good teamplay requires good communication, and this game does not nurture that. So rather than being helpful, people usually just get angry, because frankly, being helpful in this game is difficult when you have to stop playing and type out a paragraph. I play a lot of other games, I think Overwatch provides the best example. Any OW player has been in countless games where they utterly shit the bed in Round 1, and pulled it together for Round 2 and won.

This doesn't mean. "Our fiora got fed and carried" no the enemy fighting her lost them the game. Your don't win the game based on how good you do, you win based on how little you fucked up. You cannot solo carry a game anymore, unless you get an astronomical lead. I'm talking 40 kills full build by 20 minutes kind of lead. Which if you have that kind of lead you're clearly fighting cancer patients who's last wish is to play leeg. Which makes you an asshole. > > tl;dr I'm obviously salty...I hate you You know... I've done the whole full build in 20 minutes thing once or twice. What tends to happen is your team gets over confident because they are being carried; they ignore your pleas to group, and despite telling them "I fall off late game" they continue to mess around chasing kills or farming assuming everything will be alright. Then you die, your respawn is basically an eternity because of your level, your team gets rolled over, and you lose just as you appear at fountain and start running at your own nexus. I'm Bronze though, this is pretty typical down here.
Rioter Comments
: Game Impact By Role
I'd say Jungle has the most impact on a game. I've had good jungles that got all their laners well fed and captured objectives. Alternatively, I've had junglers that fed all the opposing laners allowing the enemy to snowball. A good mid can do similar, but I don't see too much of it in Bronzie-land anymore likely because of turret plating.
: I actually did send a support ticket immediately after the game. I thought a 4 man team basically holding someone hostage and harassing them was cause for escalation. When I finished writing the ticket, I found the restriction. And I understand they're trying to bait me into flaming back. Which is why I didn't. Which is why I should *not* be chat restricted right now.
I agree with you. And I've been there several times. In my opinion a premade should count as 1 report, not 4, for this exact situation.

You’d think riot would realize a role sucks when it becomes less played than support. The same thing happened when adc got gutted into the dirt. Yup, I think current popularity is Mid----->Top->ADC->Support----------------------->JG Not 100% sure between adc/top though. The plus side is Riot kinda has to fix it because it's breaking MM timers due to so few willing to JG.
I think Top is the most popular role... or at least in Wood tier it seems to be. People seem to think of Top lane as being a farming sim where they can stay all day and ignore the rest of the map and team.

: DPS > Tanks > Burst > DPS and Sustain > Poke > Kill > Sustain
Unfortunately , Riot doesn't seem to balance on a 1 by 1 basis, so the paper/rock/scissors dynamic of burst/tank/dps doesn't really apply. Originally they seemed to try to balance by team contribution. But now I think they do balancing strictly off numbers and pro-play.

: I just explained in the post. I won't repeat myself. Its too easy to dodge.
Simply stating "there's too much mobility" isn't actually explaining, it's stating an opinion. Moreover Karthus has a wall that slows to make targets less mobile. They are meant to be used in tandem. You can also force enemies into a direction via aura or aa, and Q where they are likely to go. I assume this is happening during the laning phase, as that's the time people are going to most often dodge Q. In which case instead of using it to try to hit the enemy, it's more effective to use it to deny them cs. Also, most champs don't have "absurd movement speed" during the laning phase.
: Karthus Q could be changed
Karthus Q has practically no cooldown, meanwhile mobility abilities tend to have some of the longer CDs... explain how mobility is the problem?
JuiceBoxP (EUNE)
: buff jungle exp back?
I mained jungle for practically every season since beta, but not this season. I find it too hard to catch up if you fall even slightly behind the enemy jg, nevermind laners. With the loss of the Jungle ward items, stealing enemy mob camps is far too risk free. Combine that with respawn rates, low exp, etc etc, you're screwed. Meanwhile the lanes are crying, not realizing how losing one camp can affect you so much.
