: A Thanks to All Twisted Treeline Players
> As announced earlier this year, Twisted Treeline will officially be retired at the end of this season.

I think this is a symptom of the game as a whole just being ridiculously overloaded with damage in general. yea no I get that. Im not saying that its busted when we group up. I understand all your points and agree with most of them. Especially the game being ridiculously overloaded with damage. You already said it but ill reiterate it. Its the fact that it is literally one button ya know. One button and you disappear. Its just toxic gameplay. ESPECIALLY for a "tank"
Wrong. On both points. Built AP, he's not filling the role of a tank -- just like AP cho wouldn't be a tank, or AP amumu. Also its not one button, malphite has to hit a full round of abilities to instagib someone in the early game, and at least 2 later. (R + E) There's zero reaction time, so I guess you could say its a one-shot, but its definitely not "Press R and someone dies" More like "Press R E and someone dies"

: Sounds like a person problem
No, it sounds like a bug -- because it is a bug, a bug confirmed and recognized by official Riot patch notes. I provided a link.
: You play the game weird. Lee sin is like my most played champ and I never knew such a bug existed, This wont get fixed because nobody cares that this issue exists but you.
I play weird for using an intended, implemented game feature? o.O I play weird, or I play different than you? Big difference.
: Just hold alt.
Or I just don't play the champ til they fix him. Telling me to modify my behavior to work around a bug is asinine. It'd be like if the next windows update came out and all of a sudden its alt+F5 to close a window. You'd CONSTANTLY make the mistake of pressing alt+F4 and it would do nothing. Its like when a new year comes and you keep writing 2018 on everything even though its 2019. Its a mistake you make due to muscle memory. In an intensely competitive game, there's no room for such mistakes. And I'm not going to take 2-3 weeks of my game time (which I get precious little of, these days) trying to re-train myself to do something that I shouldn't rightly even have to do. Every other champion ability in the game works fine. This is a bug, by riot's own admission. I shouldn't have to put any effort into modifying my playstyle to accommodate it -- it should be fixed. If all of a sudden computer keyboards came out and the ASDF keys were swapped with the JKL; keys, would you be happy about having to re-learn how to type? Or would you be bitching at the keyboard companies saying "What the fuck are you doing?"

: Malphite.
idk who's comin in here downvoting everything, probably an AP malphite main who doesn't wanna see their one-trick booped with the nerf stick. But yeah -- I mean, AP malphite isn't gonna straight up win you the game all by itself, right? So he gets to insta-nuke basically anyone who isn't paying attention. That's fine. But then he's literally worthless for a whole minute. So yeah if you only have one person on your team that has all of your money, and only one person on your entire team is capable of carrying the game -- sure, AP malphite is pretty devastating. But that's not usually the case. Usually he blows up the one person, or maybe he's lucky and gets his ult off on 2-3 people (your fault for bunching up) He's dead. He's INSTANTLY dead. AP malphite is squishy as hell. So he's not making it a 5v4. he's making it a 4v4. If he hits more than one person with his ult, you're just stupid for bunching together and letting him do it. You have bad vision control, you didn't position properly, you're not playing around fog of war properly.... any number of reasons, but its YOUR fault. Malphite isn't a new champion, we know what he does. So there's plenty of counterplay around him. Split the map. Buy stopwatch. Buy Zhonyas. Buy GA. GOD FORBID a carry buy a defensive item -- blasphemy! 1-3-1 him, 4-1 him. He can't be everywhere and if you're TRULY a better player, and you don't just THINK you're a better player, you can out-macro him or just outplay him with a champ that has a gap closer. (or stopwatch, or GA) Or even better yet - set up picks to kill him. He dies to a stiff breeze. Kill him, then fight. Kill him, then push. But all this isn't to say I disagree. He is absolute cancer to play against because there's really nothing you can do to stop him if you happen to make a mistake -- which we all do, even if we like to believe we don't. And for the ease of execution in his kit, he's far, FAR too powerful with AP items. Like OP said, its literally "Press R to kill something instantly" We hated Cho'Gath with Stoneplate for the same reason. It just feels bad to play against. You can do everything I said in this post, but the ONE time you step out of place, you're instantly dead and that just isn't fun. And i'm not even sure if this is symptomatic of Malphite. I think this is a symptom of the game as a whole just being ridiculously overloaded with damage in general.

: How the hell do i counter Master YI
This is gonna come off toxic because its so overused and usually used in a toxic context -- but I assure you I mean no offense. Get good. No seriously, once you figure yi's kit out, its pretty easy to play around. Don't blow any gap closers or hard CC until after he alpha strikes. Don't blow big cooldowns on him while he's meditating. Don't try to run away from him when he's ulted. 80% of the problem players have with yi is that they've never played yi and don't know what yi does. Learn his kit. Play 20-30 games as him, figure him out. Low elo yis carry games because people have dog shit positioning and leave themselves open for him to just come in and clean house. Low elo players over extend in lane, don't leave themselves an exit, stick around for WAY too long with low health and no flash, etc etc blah blah blah, the list is long. Low elo players burn all their cooldowns right at the start of a teamfight trying to get the 100-0 wombo combo all on one or two targets, rather than using their skills efficiently throughout the fight, and leaving one or two big CC cooldowns just in case they need to disengage or peel. That's where Yi thrives. When all the CC is burned and the fight devolves into people chasing each other with auto attacks and half-healthbars. A good yi knows he doesn't need to be in a fight until basically after its over. He's the janitor. The cleanup crew. When everyone's blown their load and nobody's got anything left, Yi goes in to an all you can Yi buffet. So the answer is "Get good." Don't blow all your shit right at the start of the fight. Don't over extend. Build some armor. Know Yi's kit so you know how to exploit it and outplay it. Don't hang around with 20% health. Don't chase. Basically don't invite yi to come screw you over, and yi won't come screw you over.

: Sounds welsh. I mostly pronounce H as Haytch, sometimes just Aytch though but I'm from England and depends on what im talking about. Thought that was how it was mostly pronounced everywhere.
Always just "Aytch" here. You never here the breathy hard "H" sound at the start like "Haytch" And I'm pretty sure that's country wide here in the US. Don't know that I've ever heard anyone but Vedius say "haytch" in my life, and I'm 32 and I've been around the world (US Navy Vet, 2 deployments) Think that's a EU thing exclusively.

: Gank heavy meta incoming.
incoming? Its already here m8. Been here for about 2 seasons now.
: PBE isn't accurate at all, because there is too varied a skill difference of folk there, it's mostly used by folk to test skins, and people just don't use it seriously. And let us not forget the time when Skarner and Darius came out overpowered as hell out of PBE, because people said "They were too weak" and Riot listened. Riot themselves have explained why PBE isn't used for balance. It's used for catching bugs and game breaking bugs before they hit live, and even then because of spaghetti code, things like Azir go bugless on PBE, but break when they hit live.
Then why do we have a PBE server at all lol
Comentários de Rioters
: No, we can't. Because despite what you seem to think it isn't a community issue, it's a 0 sum balance team issue. When you make an entire group of champions(assassins) who's sole job it is to 1 shot in a game that's designed in theory for counterplay what you effectively have is an impossible situation. You can't solve a problem by wishing it away which is what you're suggesting. The community has 0 control over the direction the "balance team" goes and since the "balance team" can't tell which way is up, let alone actually get any sort of balance right. We're stuck with a game that will progressively get shittier until it falls apart completely.
See THIS is an interesting point -- because "one shotting" is NOT actually what assassins should be doing. Assassins should excel at hiding. Stealth. Ambush. Surprise attacks. Riot seems to think this is synonymous with "Blow someone up before they can react" Its not. A champion that stays invisible and skirts around the fight, waiting for the opportune moment to strike doesn't NEED to one-shot. They simply need to have enough skill and patience to perform their job. One shotting should never exist in a game like this. 2-3 hits MINIMUM to kill someone. You won't hear me say this often, but I think HOTS did assassins right. Champs like Zeratul feel rewarding to play because you can stay invisible, navigate your way around a fight, and then do MASSIVE damage to someone. You might not necessarily 100-0 them, but they're sure as hell gonna know you were there, and they're sure as hell gonna re-think what they're doing when you hit them. That's what an assassin should do.

: does heimerdinger have any weakneses that melee champs can abuse toplane?
"The meta is shifting to ranged top and I'm not shifting with it, and its someone else's fault."
: Time to admit that the blitz buffs were a HUGE mistake!
lol @ people in this thread saying "bot lane is a fiesta" or "top lane is a fiesta" This whole fkn game is a fiesta right now, and has been for like 2 seasons. Maybe even 3. And its only getting worse. But we all stick around because we have this hope that it'll get better. Its like being in a toxic relationship. You remember and cherish the good times, so you stick around thinking it'll go back to that somehow. Well, like in life -- it won't.

: When I play Lee Sin I spam W a lot when I'm about to place a ward to escape or gank, that would make me look ridiculous. Morgana E is not a dash
I’m not referring to the dash portion. That works just fine. I’m talking about the self shield portion. So it used to work like this, once upon a time: I w on a ward - I go to that ward I w on an ally - I go to that ally I w on nothing - I shield myself. Now the first 2 Are still true. But the third does absolutely nothing. Let’s take Nami heal as another example. With my control scheme (a default provided by riot — I’m not making my own buttons here) if I press w on an enemy, I wave that enemy. If I press it on an ally, I wave that ally. If I have no target, I wave myself. Same should be true for lee. And it was, at one point. But something they did broke it. It was even in some patch notes (or an AMA or something?). They said they’d fix it. That was like 5+ years ago. Edit: lulu is another example. E works on enemy, ally, self. If I have no target i shield myself. Her ult is similar. R an ally, big ally. R nothing, big lulu.

: It should automatically count as a loss for their records (I believe it will say "Leaver"). But it will still show up as a victory for the team.

: probably because "you need to farm better" is not actionable advice. Try saying things that actually help the team, instead of being low key toxic
it is actionable advice. The action is you learn to farm better because having <100 CS at 30 mins is not acceptable. The toxic part is you thinking its toxic.
: you my friend, is what we call a meta slave. you follow the meta to a T and will give shit to anyone who goes "off meta". i never followed the meta EVER and i did well for myself. and because i never followed the meta crap i was adventurous and more than a simple OTP. and you know another disadvantage to being a meta slave? the meta can be fucked over by a little something called bans. that right. you could be a fucking M7 {{champion:157}} and won every game with him and suddenly, uh oh. enemy banned him. what will you do now? if you are an off meta free lancer like i was you have many options to play as essentially by passing bans and OTP.
My top mastery champs are Nunu (pre-rework), Ivern, and amumu. I’m such a meta slave. You’re so right.

Wow. I don't know that I've ever seen that much projection in one place. Kudos.
: Removal is too far, but it should indeed be optional.
who would ever opt into autofill....?
: Then ask them to lane switch if they suck at their role.
nah, cuz then kids just get butthurt and troll because you OP.GG'd them and outed them for sucking, even if you're being purely altruistic -- because these spoiled snowflake kids would get upset if you told them the sky was blue.
: Get rid of autofill
I, for one, would gladly take 10+ minute queue times if I was absolutely guaranteed my role. There's no reason to punish literally everyone just because nobody wants to play support. Negative reinforcement does not equate to positive results. You want fair queues -- guarantee people their roles, and give some kind of incentive to the people who play the lesser-filled ones. Key fragments or something. Bonus honor. Extra mission rewards. Blue essence. There's a myriad of rewards this game has to offer to incentivize certain behaviors. Instead, we say "nah, fuck you -- nobody's playing support right now so I guess fuck you AND your team for this game, since you're nearly guaranteed to be shit at whatever role we auto-fill you into, and we're putting 4 other players at a disadvantage now." This is what WoW does. Not that WoW is some kind of glamorous role-model poster child for games -- but they at least do this one thing right. You get extra gold and extra items if you queue up in the less popular positions. I'll tell you what WoW doesn't do -- they don't make the resto druid the tank for the dungeon because they couldn't find a tank.

I was only ever decent at karthus and didn't really like melee champs. I preferred mages. i knew karthus had great wave clear and blue buff gave mana. So whenever i'd bring my karthus into the jungle i'd be called a troll. same thing with morgana support back when she was thought to be a mid. and same thing with brand/veigar/lux support. we accept it now, but back when it was just starting out it was called off-meta because the only person that knew those mechanics enough were the people that played those champs daily. i remember when zyra moved bottom lane and it created a huge uproar. ----------------- anyway - point is that off-meta isn't all that different from general game sense. if a season doesn't see a lot of one champion then the entirety of the league player base tends to ignore or forget about certain champions and their possibilities. because a majority of players dont actually stream. They're focused on learning everything they can about their champions match ups - just the same as a fighting game character might be bad at zoning and good at grappling some champion characters are good at wave clear while others are good at single target elimination. and introducing a champion that has been forgotten about by the community - such as viktor as a support or yorick as a jungler is by many considered off-meta. thereby my point still stands. -------- just because the phrase off-meta has evolved to mean "trolling player purposely handicapping themselves" it doesn't actually mean that.
My point stands as well -- it isn't some average joe bronze kid figuring these things out. Its a top level player, perhaps even a pro player figuring these things out. So I re-iterate -- if you're not Diamond+ or a pro player/pro coach -- don't try this at home. Just stick to the meta. Best thing you can do as a low elo player in this regard is to just stay on top of the PBE notes and PBE forums and anticipate when things are going to be broken, or what's being discussed by PBE players, and try to abuse it before it becomes mainstream.

And I'd put some serious money on the fact that its not gonna be you that figures it out, and its certainly not gonna be me. i'd argue that people that 1 trick the same champion in every lane can eventually figure this sort of stuff out just simply knowing how to play their champ. i'd also argue that players that focus on pve instead of pvp aspects in the game are also more likely to discover an unusual tactic. support and jungle players especially since those lanes are technically roaming lanes that arent limited to 1 position - though jungle has a bit more freedom with their hunting grounds between mid and top.
I don't know if I really call that kind of stuff "off-meta" though. When I think "off-meta" I think of people picking things like urgot support, or leblanc jungle, or some other stupid nonsense -- because they saw Viktor top with Kleptomancy work, CLEARLY AD syndra top with phase rush and trinity force is a good idea too! No. Its not. What you're talking about (seemingly) is just general game sense -- which I would agree is going to be an ever-evolving thing no matter what.

: And how are we supposed to time summoners? Or untilt our teammates? Maybe your experience is different because the advice "farm better" is not advice. It's like saying "cait don't feed" or other stupid shit like that. Maybe if chat was affecting your performance that much it's good that you personally turned it off because it was affecting your mental state obviously. Most of us don't even think twice about what strangers have to say on the internet. In fact I find it enormously amusing when people are getting infuriated over a video game, whose sole purpose is to make you have fun.
Time stamps and pings still come through just fine, friendo. (unless you mute it specifically) just not the bullshit useless chat from brainless idiots raging at a video game, or the self-appointed fearless leaders who wanna do baron at 22 minutes when its 3v5 (enemy advantage) and we have no vision, and our jungler is dead. and "You need to farm better" is solid advice when your adc has <100 CS in a 30 minute game. Whether you wanna take it as advice or an insult is entirely up to you (see OP regarding "soft, weak, thin-skinned babies") .....But we'll see where that ADC is in 6 months if they keep farming like that, won't we? Probably still raging at people in bronze for telling him he needs to farm better! Also, LMFAO at "Untilt your teammates." Thats rich.

I wonder if riot would stand up for high skill players that run off-meta in ranked though if they turned their chat off? there are like... at least 3 incidents where players who had trouble communicating their strats were banned. it never looked good on them of course due to how league treats off-meta, but i do remember that one time when it was stated that you're required to communicate with your teammates and I almost said "that's bullshit" on the rioters post.
"Off meta" is just a fancy word for "bullshit that doesn't work" If something is overpowered or able to be reliably abused -- it will be. And smarter people than you or I will figure it out waaaaaaayyyyyy sooner than we ever will. The meta is the meta for a reason. Its what works. Its whats tried, tested, and true. And unless you're one of the .00001% of big brained theorycrafters that bust up the meta REGULARLY with your ideas -- you probably shouldn't even try because you're just going to piss people off, and more importantly, you're probably just doing something stupid anyway. 99.9999% of "Off meta" picks are absolute niche things that will only work in less than 10% of scenarios. Specific matchups. Specific circumstances. An entire team build around this one "off meta" pick. Then they do it on a live stream, and all the little bronzie sheeple jump all over it like a bitch in heat -- like its gonna work no matter what, and then they get mad when they get shat on. If something is TRULY broken, or something is TRULY freelo -- it will be meta. And I'd put some serious money on the fact that its not gonna be you that figures it out, and its certainly not gonna be me.

Idk like 3-4 patches ago? it was right around when TFT came out.

: the state of gold right now
You're playing malphite jungle and nunu support. How are you surprised that you're not doing well? also, none of the games you showed here have you with a positive KDA, or really any good stats at all, besides the 1/2/7 nunu game (which you won) One of the biggest tips any pro player or high elo player will give you is that the game is 90% mental. It is quite clear by this post that your mental is weak. You're blaming your team for everything, you're raging on the forums, you're blaming "the system" for "keeping you down" I've been there. I think most people have. It holds you down way more than any external force ever will. If you play while you're thinking this way, you will continue to lose. Instead, at the end of every game, look at YOUR OWN stats. Look at YOUR OWN performance. Watch YOUR OWN vods, and see what you could be doing better. Worry about you. Nobody else. You can't control your team mates or the enemy team, and no amount of typing, forum posting, or raging is ever going to change that. EVER. Only person you can change is you.

: I mean it does take mental skills to plan on the fly. But luck is just a constant thing in auto chess in general.
Yyyyyyeeeahhhh.... but not as much as TFT. If you really wanna play autochess, play autochess or Dota: Underlords. Both platforms do literally everything better than TFT, and are consequently more fun. Riot really just fell flat with their attempt -- and they don't seem to be too keen on doubling back to fix it. Instead, they just consistently make it worse. Which is a shame, because I feel like they have the right idea and all the right tools -- they're just too stubborn to listen.
: Diamond in TFT just means lucky.
wish this weren't as true as it is. I skyrocketed to platinum with little to no trouble at all. Figured all the people complaining about luck were just trash. Then I actually got to my real MMR and shit started actually getting competitive. And I started losing games to shit like someone getting 4 3-star champs when everyone else got none. Someone getting 2-3 items every creep round while others got none. And I realized the bitter truth. Once you've reached your actual skill cap as a straight-up "play your cards" player, there is no such thing as climbing. There's no such thing as "improve your game, improve your rank." At a certain point -- it really does just become about luck.

Jensen carried him these last 2 splits and Xmithie carried him during his first tenure on Liquid. Bjerg/Hauntzer carried him in the previous splits. He's a smart guy. Go to the team that can get you the ship is a good strategy and there is nothing wrong with that... but there is a reason he can't compete internationally. That's because he is bottom tier talent once he gets over there and the people who carried him in NA can't really carry him at Worlds. He's a regional player and if you want to be successful regionally, then DL is your guy as long as you have strong laners who can carry him... but he's a paperwieght in international play. TL better off trying to trade him before Worlds even starts. One of my favorite moments in LOL history is when DL tweeted last year before their game to make it out of groups saying, "I will not lose!" and his very next tweet was, "Sorry to all my fans" XD He's just toxic and loves the attention. Don't give him the satisfaction and call a spade a spade. And I don't have any trophies... because I'm not on a professional team... but if I played on TL with Impact, Xmithie, Jensen, and CoreJJ... yeah... i'd win every split too XD
Dead weight? Can't do anything without his team? Bottom tier talent? Only ever gonna be a regional player? Paperweight in international play? Better off trading him before worlds? Here, let me add a bit of my own flavor, "Largely forgettable and only well known because of his career length, because for some reason they won't get rid of him?" You're talking about sneaky, fam. Only reason anyone even knows this kids name is cuz meteos made him famous XD (Oh and he likes to dress up like a girl)

: Traps be Visible Through Allied Towers
Some people don't think it be like that. But it do.
: Doublelift is trash... so is Bjerg... they both trash. TSM should have dropped them both. Regi is the main one that needs to go.
Uh... Doublelift is not on TSM anymore, and has won 4 back to back splits.... Probably can't hear you over all that bling. How many trophies do you have? Also, agree with the Reggie thing -- but its his org so.... that aint happening
: Lolwut? Doublelift is far from best in the world. Arguably best in NA.
: TSM is so horrible!
Spica played at least OK for his first time being in the situation. And honestly, his performance looked worse than it really was be cause of our absolute trash heap ADC. At least a handful of deaths were Spica trying to save Zven's garbage ass. Literally the worst decision in this organization's history was to dump DL for Zven. Absolutely hysterically bad decision. Spica will be fine. But if I was him I'd GTFO TSM immediately, or else yes -- his career will be over. I've been a TSM fan since day 1, and I'm still a TSM fan -- but this org is hot garbage ATM. Bjerg's contract is up. I say let him go. We've spent far too long trying to build a team around this kid with very little results.
