: New theory: One of the devs is dating Olaf
Olaf is entirely a low elo problem. At higher elos he's pretty much not run at all and even once you get to mid-elo (gold/plat) he pretty much vanishes. As you get higher, people actually learn how to build decent comps, and how to build healing reduction.

: Selling at 1-1
At one point if you sold your unit at 1-1, the game would basically reverse that when the round started, and put the unit you sold on the board.
: When will TFT give xp ???
Yea I can't wait to play ranked with a guy who hit 30 spamming TFT and is playing his very first Summoner's rift game.
: Olaf - Where's the balance?
Healing reduction, killing him before he ults, burst damage. Take your pick.
: Will this Hyper - Roll somehow get nerfed ?!!
In my games people that hyper roll will usually end up towards the bottom.
LexC100 (EUW)
: Where is the skill in this game?
So why do some people consistently get higher elo, and some people consistently stay in lower elos?
: Did they buff stuns this season
Single target CC is more powerful in this set, AOE CC is significantly weaker. There's pretty much only Malphite and he's a pretty mediocre unit, compared to last set with Gnar/Cho/Sejuani/Leona.
: Demote shortly after promotion?
That's the trade off for not having promos. Since you can promote much easier, you can demote much easier.
: I mean he probably got early woodland and managed to get a good win streak to help get more money then hyper rolled before 5. It looks impressive and I'm sure they had some luck with rolls too but the only one above 2 star is Veigar and woodland falls off a lot late game. Plenty of counters to mage - poison, light, mystic, buying out the Veigar. I see this is bronze, so people probably just stuck to one game plan and let him continue the win streak.

Yea this wouldn't happen at higher elos. At higher elos people actually scout and if they see you going for Veigar 3, they will start buying Veigars just to deny it.

: The only real conclusion you can draw from people complaining about TFT:
My main conclusion is that they're low elo. The difference between my normal games (with people that are like bronze/silver) vs my ranked games with higher elo players, is insane.
Comentários de Rioters
: What's some Predator counters?
Set 2 is all about damage, so the main thing is always gonna be to kill them before they can kill you. So really any top tier comp. If you're running a brand comp with summoners then if you can get one double ult off from a 2 star brand with stacked items, it doesn't matter if he gets executed after. Or something like blademaster/assassins that can 1 shot their kog before he does anything.
Heroboy10 (EUNE)
: Hyper-rolling and Elo
Higher elo plays much faster and puts much more value into the early and mid game. The reason you don't see many 3 stars in high elo is because if you hoard your gold until after krugs/wolves, and don't level, you will get completely smashed by everyone else. And you'll finish a couple 3* units with only 40 HP left, and then still lose because you're 2 levels down and don't really have any synergies.
: Every game 1st place has at least 4 gold units though, its clearly an advantageous strategy. Every single game, they don't level at all once they hit 6 and just roll until they 3 star their units. There is nothing you can do against that many 3 stars if you also don't have 3 stars. I have had 3 unit advantages, but that doesn't seem to work. Even having the same comp as them with more units than them doesn't work, their 3 star power spike is overwhelming. Its really annoying because they get to sit back and econ after that while you scramble and level for the units you need. They are winning the game at level 6, that is absolutely ridiculous and its starting to annoy me. I tried doing it but unfortunately I didn't look before hand and someone else was going after the same units.

Maybe if you're like, really low elo that's the case for you.
: Get Level 3 unit and Win
After the patch nerfing them, low cost units don't feel that strong as a 3 star. They definitely help, especially early, but without synergies, items, and a decent comp, they're not going to carry you to a win or even a top 4. I actually played a round a few days ago where some guy in the game decided that he didn't care about synergies, or levels, or anything, except getting 3 stars. He got a 3 star Kog, Warwick, Skarner, and Rek'sai. He finished in 5th place at level 6 because he was going up against people who were level 8, which meant they got an extra 2 units, and his only synergy was predator, while his opponents had multiple. Hell i had a game where I got 3 star Zyra and Diana very early, and still got completely wrecked, finishing 6th. Now 3 star version of 4+ gold units are completely insane, and they're supposed to be. They're extremely difficult to get and just one other player going for the same units completely locks you out of getting them.

: Bronze Veig 1-shotting gold Tibbers??
Well if you're running something like ocean/mage/summoners, a bronze Veigar will be 1 shot by a random Brand ult bounce before it gets to do that.
: TFT fights should wait for spells to finish
Level 3 Brand is already OP. Hell, level 2 Brand is OP, that's why he got hotfixed; because while everyone on here is ranting about olaf/glacials, ocean/mages was by far the best comp (and probably still is).

I think of the 10-15 Senna players I've seen, I think 1 actually went support.
: Statistically, why does Blue side still have nearly a 3% higher chance of winning than Red side?
It's just camera angle. I'm actually surprised that they're so close. In Dota 2 at one point I remember it being nearly 55-45 or worse.

: TFT end of year rewards?
Gold+ isn't difficult to get on summoner's rift either. It should be gold+ for TFT since that's where the cutoff for victorious rewards has traditionally been. Which is fine IMO, it's a good point where it's not super brain dead, but as long as you're able to learn the mode somewhat and grind out a few games, you'll hit it. As for the actual rewards, there's a chance we don't get one considering how it's still technically in beta. If we do it'll probably be an arena or something. Doubt we get a little legend since Riot wants people to buy eggs.
: Placements are broken.
And now I'm getting +30 LP for winning a game with gold 4 teammates while in Iron 2.

It's the same MMR system, just dressed differently. And if you're in there, it's because you just aren't a good player.
: Wtf is wrong with ranked placements.
OPGG is terrible when it comes to its MMR numbers. They're little more than a wild guess.
: Feed, Tilt and Infamous Playing The Champion For The First Time
Problem is that normals is an absolutely terrible environment for learning champions. If normals weren't so bad then people would be willing to practice in normals before going to ranked. Even if you try normal draft instead of blind pick, you always get people who just troll pick and play like idiots.
: Is anything going to be done about autofill in ranked?
There used to be a time when there was no role queueing. You joined a room and you were usually stuck adhering to pick order. 1st pick usually went mid and last pick was usually stuck supporting. You were usually expected to know how to play at least 1 champion in a few other roles, the more popular your main role the more off roles you needed to know.
: Trolls in ranked is enough to make me want to quit.
So I'm looking at your match history, and maybe I'm just missing it but I'm not seeing these obvious inters and trolls that you claim to have in every game. Certainly games where people struggle, but that includes you as well. Honestly everything in your match history just shows standard low elo play. If you don't like it then get better, win games, and play at a higher elo. Also, your builds are definitely a bit odd. You seem to like mejais... a lot.

: Massive Game =/= Good Game
Just Cause 2 and 3 had absolutely enormous maps but they were very flawed games and I'd say 3 was an outright bad game. I can give 2 a pass because they gave you these enormous maps and tools to cause mayhem in them even though there wasn't much to do with those tools. 3 on the other hand did absolutely nothing to build on that.
: SA if they can't group, Rhaast if they group. SA gives tools to consistently pick enemies off the edges, Rhaast gives that heavy engage. Overall Rhaast is simply too good compared to SA though. That difference is an extreme one. Rhaast benefits: % damage (in a health-heavy meta), knockup, spellvamp/heal SA benefits: Mobility. That's it.

You clearly have never played as blue kayn because saying that you only get mobility is absolutely ridiculous. The burst damage potential on SA is insane and he's probably the best "true" assassin right now in the game, with an ability to 100-0 squishies that's pretty much unparalleled.

By focusing on yourself. If you're at an elo where people make these kind of mistakes frequently then you have a lot of improving to do as an individual. If you focus less on your team and more on yourself, you'll not only avoid getting banned, you'll also climb.

: Why does ranked keep us at 50% winrate?
That's basically how it works. Only thing is people think they should be higher than they are so when they start winning 50% of their games in Silver 4 they blame Riot for forcing them into a 50% win rate instead of realizing that's where they belong.

Shyvana is a very strong jungler if you play her right. You just have to play her differently than you would another jungler.

You should really look up item builds or something. To me this just reeks of "I've been going with the same build on this champ since season 2 and I'm not capable of changing that." You rushed athene because it's familiar and comfortable, rather than focus on trying to be as effective as possible.

: Matchmaking System (Specifically Ranked)
I don't really know what you expect. You're a gold player, you duo queue with a silver 4 player, and you're expecting teammates at the same level as you? When you duo with someone at a full division lower than you? That doesn't really make sense. The garen jungle game you mention, the guy was Gold 2 and it's not like he fed his ass off. He just tried something a bit unconventional and it didn't work, that happens sometimes and you just have to learn to deal with it. Sometimes your team has comp issues, sometimes you get outplayed. This doesn't mean matchmaking is fundamentally broken, it just means you lost a game. People always want something to blame when they feel like they're not getting the results they expect, and matchmaking has consistently been blamed for the failures of individuals. Because what people don't like is that matchmaking sometimes gives them difficult games, and hard to win games, that they lose. And since this prevents them from climbing to their rating, or at least that's what they perceive (the truth is that they just failed to play at the level they want). Yea it sucks to have someone on your team have a bad game, but that's just part of the game. If you want to climb and get to where you think you belong, you just need to play better.
