: How are you guys climbing?
I am not climbing. I am in Bronze V and get 21LP for a win and -19Lp for a lose; so I am where I should be. I reckon that, with a bit more practice and some more learning, I can push for Bronze IV this season :) And yes, there are a fair number of bell-ends in my teams, but I am not going to blame them for my lowly rank.

BLOODCRYPT (EUNE)
: I have 20 minutes not 5 minutes...ive had this thing before but it was at least a month back ..it cant possibly mean to tell me ive been afking consistently , there is no way near a leave in these couple of weeks in my entire match history
Yeah, it is a weird system and does seem harsh when there are people who dodge and afk all the time. But hey, life aint always fair.
Perilum (EUW)
: No you didn't. The punishment from leavebuster is increasing over time. If you do that on regular basis, you get harder and harder punishments. For leaving the game once and "never before" you don't get 30 min Leavebuster. At least don't make up stories when you try to justify your bad behavior.
That is the god's honest truth. I have never left a game and never dodged a queue. edit- actually, the first time i ever played, I ctrl-alt-del out of the champ loading screen because I thought that it had crashed. I 'signed the' "I agree" to not doing it again. But since then....nothing. I am not making up stories.
BLOODCRYPT (EUNE)
: Priority queue??
You should be happy that it was only 5 minutes. I have never dodged a queue or AFK'd but I had this experience where the client crashed on me in the champion select for a ranked game. I got 30 minutes penalty and had 10 LP deducted. So, I restarted the pc, repaired the client etc. Fired it up again, went into a ranked game and the same thing happened (30 minutes and 10 LP). Sure, I was a bit annoyed but, you know...shit happens. It's not like I lost money or anything :)
: Would this happen on and off though? Would that be normal? (And how would one improve the cooling? Thermal paste?)
It can be intermittant, depending on what background processes are going on. Firstly, try closing any programs that you are not using whilst playing. See if that has an effect. Even browsers can use quite a lot of your CPU resources. It could be that your fan and/or vents are blocked with dust; clear them out. The thermal paste might need replacing but I think that you should exclude everything else first as it can be a bit of a faff. Check that you have good ventilation going in and coming out of the pc case. This was actually causing my son's pc to overheat. He added a couple of bigger case fans and now the hot air from the CPU fan is cleared much quicker and keeps the temperature down.
: Sometimes ping spikes and computer gets loud
The fan is going faster because the cpu is overheating. Improve the cooling on your system and all will be well again.
YUKl (EUW)
: DIfficulty of climbing SoloQ as support main
You get the same LP regardless of which role you play or your in-game performance. The only thing that effects your LP is your win/loss and the MMR difference between you and the average MMR for your division.
: Wait, did you call people to report Graves for camping you? That is possibly the dumbest reason to report someone I've ever heard.

: Unofficial Patch 7.4 Notes - Om and Nom and Nom
>We’re changing things up so whoever reveals the ward and whoever kills it both get those precious gold coins without having to compete with one another. This made me really happy! As a support, you are spending your gold, time and taking some risks when placing and sweeping for wards. Just as an ADC will (rightly) get mad at you for "stealing farm", having a ward, that you have just revealed, last hit and the gold snatched away from you is a personal bugbear of mine. As supports, we are always having to work on a tight budget trying to balance out the purchase of utility items and to provide vision for the team. Having someone last hit that ward that you have revealed always seemed to me to be a bit like the ADC stealing coins from a beggar. I think that this subtle change will make a big difference to supports. ty Riot...gj :)

: Well, this guy was begging for any other role than support and he didn't dodge and he admitted himself that he's a bad support. I said that cause I wanted Varus to keep trying. It's hard to not call that Udyr terrible when people are defending him cause he has good stats. It's really sad that all people care about are stats even though they're not everything. I wouldn't consider "terrible" as an insult either to be honest... Keep in mind that Udyr, Fiora and Amumu from enemy team kept calling me a feeder and were really offensive to me.
>It's really sad that all people care about are stats even though they're not everything. Yep, I agree with that. But sadly, that is the way a lot of people measure success in the game and it is hard to get them to change their point of view. I think that moral of the story is to just not get into flame/blame wars with people. Make your point (politely) and if they ignore it then just mute and ignore them. What ban to you have? Chat restriction, temporary or perma?

Me neither. sure, I might get a bit tilted if someone is on my back that whole game. But I wouldn't type anything in the chat that would just aggravate the situation. It serves no purpose to blame and rage at people.

SandyBiza (EUW)
: Punishment for Surrendering
I don't think that there should be a punishment for surrendering but maybe there could be a limit to the number of surrender votes any one player can start. Maybe there could be a 10 minute cool down for each player in between starting a vote. I get annoyed with players that just spam the surrender vote over and over, even though the vote fails by 4 to 1.
Zantonny (EUW)
: "Skill" as you put it, is measurable in more than just base game mechanics. So many players think "I win lane but always lose 'cause team lose lane" I lose lane (in terms of gold gained from lane phase) constantly when I play in a 5 man premade. Like, almost religiously. But what I have done is provide pressure on the turrets, take jungle attention, provide vision of top jungle, make TP plays. I may lose damage trades with my opponents, but I win the map wide objective battle. Winning lane doesn't win the game.
> Winning lane doesn't win the game. Indeed. Unfortunately, there are a lot of players who play the game like it is a FPS and only focus on KDA. KDA doesn't win games...objectives do.

: does ritalin work for plsying league better?
This would only really be effective in some situations. If you are prescribed Ritalin for ADHD then yes, of course it will. The evidence is equivocal about it's effect on the brain in people who do not have ADHD. There is a placebo effect to taking it that leads people to feel that they can perform better (in exams or complex cognitive tasks).
: well what u say is pretty obviously ,,,why ? bcs we all read faq ,, or am i the only one ???
I think that most of us know this, but there are still some people who are not sure or just don't bother to read the Summoner's Code/Terms of Use. Of course that doesn't excuse them (ignorance is no defence) but I do feel a bit sorry for people who get lured into downloading stuff or playing on another person's pc without knowing that they could lose their account.

: Isn't Ranked supposed to meassure your Skill?
Yep, I am the first one to admit that I am bad at this game and deserve the MMR that I have. sure, I have a fair number of dodgy players in my teams but I don't blame them for my performance if I am playing badly. I sometimes play well though, but not often enough. I believe that climbing is about consistency (i.e the variation in your own performance). Until I can reduce the differential between how good my good games are and how bad my bad games are, then I am going to be going nowhere.

BucZOtwocka (EUNE)
: sigh no. The damage formula is [nominal damage] x 100 /(100+their armor) so you do your nominal damage if the target has 0 armor, 1/2 of your nominal damge is the have 100 armor, 1/3 if they have 200 and so on. This means that lethality is the most effective against low armor targets, and barely does anything against tanks with high resistances. Because calculus.
OK, So...from my example above: AD = 100 their Armour = 50 and Lethality = 20 Damage dealt = (100x100) / (100+(50-20)) = 10000 / 130 Damage dealt = 76.9

So... damage dealt = AD - (armour - lethality) ? If you are dealing 100 damage and your opponent has 50 armour and 20 Lethality) then you will deal 70 damage?

He meant 12 lethality, not 12 ad.
so, 12 damage on top of the ad then?
Rich (EUW)
: Lethality is a new statistic introduced in Season 2017. It grants flat armor penetration using the following formula: Flat Armor Penetration = LETHALITY × (0.6 + 0.4 × Target's level ÷ 18) Bascially.. You get 60% of your lethality as armour pen right away, then you get the other 40% from target levels 1-18, scaling up based on level.) At target's level 18 you get the full amount of lethality you have built as armour pen. EG. If your target is level 18 and you build 20 Lethality, you would have 20 Armour pen vs them. If they are level 1, you would have 12 and a tiny bit for first level. It's strange to explain, ask me if you're confused.
>If they are level 1, you would have 12 and a tiny bit for first level. It's strange to explain, ask me if you're confused. You do 12 damage at level 1? that is not very much!! If they have base health of 500 you would have to hit them an awful lot for it to make it worthwhile.

: Every player has made a post complaining about this issue, now it is my time
KP% on Soraka tends to be well above the 66% that you got there. That global ult can give you a ton of assists. 18 wards in 27 minutes is OK, but might have been a bit low. You probably weren't far off an S- to be honest. Also, If you can cheese a kill or 2 in a TF then that does seem increase your chances of an S.
: PRACTICE MODE WhY Only SOLO mode??
Why are people never happy?
: Comebacks, while not as frequent in high elo, are very possible too if you play your cards right honestly. All it takes is 1 mistake from the enemy team, and you just have to capitalize on it properly and you can turn a game in your favor. I had a ranked game a few days ago where my midlane went even (though he made a lot of mistakes), and botlane went 1/16. We actually managed to win that game despite only me (the toplaner) and my friend (the jungler) were doing well. We were more than 11k behind, but we turned the game around when they slightly overstepped and i was able to tp flank for 3 kills and a baron. We won the game a few min after, before the baron buff had even expired.
Some friends and I had a game last week where we were losing badly. The enemy were in our base and had taken an inhibitor. we were behind in gold and kills. The 5 of us just sat back and defended when they got baron. We hung on defiantly and took no chances. They just couldn't close out the game at all. Slowly, but surely, we managed to start pushing lanes and warding up our jungle. Eventually, we managed to claw our way back into the game and started pushing lanes when we could, until we all had our full builds. We sneaked baron and pushed to victory. It was probably the best game that I have ever played. If we had surrendered when we were behind then we would have left the game depressed. Instead, we were on a high!
