Well judging from the downvotes looks like you got some negative feedback. I'm guessing this will raise the average Leagues player base age, probably above the minimum required to play it. Overall i find this attempt useless, but seeing what cookies are being used for is nice, while in OP.GG case it's rather in the way.
: well ...it is true...
He's way too nostalgic and can't see the reality nostalgia is very visible in his other videos too. He can't accept the fact that players can figure out a way to play the game, Metas exists in other games too and they don't have the kind of sites LoL has.

: I've been adc all of my league life so I wanted a change and went top lane for the 1v1 outplays and fun, I manage my outplays just mid game comes along and I'm screwed!
You're not being unlucky, you're bad at top or at least worse. The way you play top and adc is very different. If you change role don't be surprised that you perform worse.

Ashe can be played as support, just less known or played among lower elo players.

It would be easier for you to stick with enchanters since they share similar playstyle. Well I'm looking for a challenge, not a way to climb. Downvotes are from enchanter players and I get it why they downvote this thread. While I understand why they downvote, I'm also stating facts here, they are easy in terms of mechanics and more dependent on game knowledge in laning phase on bot, knowing how to play mid/lategame, when and were to ward, not getting caught while warding/clearing wards ect. Those things arent easy and you can carry games with Janna and I know that. I also know that she is really easy to play in terms of champion mechanic. I also know that you can make wonders with her tornado, because you can stop leesin/kha/trist rushing in your teammate. But also, if you cant disable them while they are doing that - no problem, you have much other uses in teamfights too. I agree that Lux isn't hard, but it gets really harder to make skillshoots as you climb, thats the reason she has low playrate when you move up the ladder. She's also easier to pull off as a midlane mage rather than a support because as you climb people understand how to punish you for picking Lux support and you got to react to that. You have no utility and with at least 1 teammate flaming from the lobby pressure to play good is even higher and I really like that. Thats one of the reasons I main her.
You could try Ashe support, that's gonna be an even bigger challenge and your team will be even more likely to flame you. LoL

Meta already barely even matters and for someone who's still in bronze it's non-existant.

Is there no option to pick different speakers? I found it annoying that whenever I connected my computer to tv using HDMI cable it would use TV's speakers. Later on, I found out I can switch between speakers by pressing on the speakers' icon in the bottom right corner.
M3chaDoc (EUW)
: I've been reading alot these past few hours, about the whole climbing and solo carries, and it appears that the argument is false. Everyone needs to improve their limit. It is as abvious as it is. But Riot has made it over the years so that "solo carrying" is very difficult. From what I've read and experienced myself... Akaash- "You can solo lose a game, but you can't solo carry anymore." Also read what I've actually written rather than throwing general "git-gud" You will see that Riot places me with silvers and against them. Also a rare gold elo player from last season shows up in about every 2 to 3 games
> Everyone needs to improve their limit. It is as abvious as it is. But Riot has made it over the years so that "solo carrying" is very difficult. Riot just undid that. This patch or previous one, at the moment im not too certain.

Rumkatten (EUW)
: I broke silver in flex with a 57% winrate. It was very easy. Flex is much, much easier. I thought I ought to try in soloqueue so I did. I wasnt able to break silver with a consistent winrate of 55% (though I came pretty close). Then I raged and tilted and it fell to 52%, then I quit ranked. Now Im rerolling my main role in anger. The inconsistency of bronze games are insane. And this IS in fact what Riot is adressing. Noone expects these changes to magicaly turn a b5 into a silver or for that matter magically turn me plat. Im not and I wont be eighter. But Im quite sure I will be silver very fast with these changes, my game history taken into consideration. PS: I know Im VERY BAD AT LEAGUE, so dont start the blablabla about me being bad, cause i know this. Okay.

: Need advice for a guy who can't seem to get a little lucky with his teams.
Yes, that would be good. But you should be prepared that you will eventually have to face them again and you will have to find a way to overcome it.
: ranking? thats the wrong word
Hey hey hey, you can't meet newbies in B4, they are at silver. You're way too low to meet those. > Off course there are some 'lucky' players, strangely they have lot of skins.. Is this a p2w game or what? Well to climb high there are certain things that help, like having the main role, small champion pool or just straight up being a one trick. So those players can easier get attached to those champions and decide to get some shiny new skins for them. Skin is just a possible indication of skill or at least attachment to that champion.
Shmoeggle (EUW)
: Knew you'd be commenting sometime. In all fairness thou I haven't full on stated a blame for my loss Smerk. If you're looking simply at the kda then you're looking incorrectly since my early game is pretty fine, it's just mid when enemies are pretty much fed and I join in on team fights.
You are inconsistent. Your most played champions are adcs, but your recent played champions seem to be toplaners. Then it seems like you're on your way to test out all the champions game has to offer.
fawkes (EUNE)
: Platinum support champ pool
Last time i saw this thread i ignored it, but now i see it again and for some reason, it got downvotes so now you got my curiosity. Maybe we should call things for what they are, you want to carry and feel like carrying, Lux isn't exactly a very difficult champion. It's harder to get that feeling with enchanters. Jumping from Lux to the likes of Thresh or Bard will cost you rank, they're played completely different from Lux. It would be easier for you to stick with enchanters since they share similar playstyle.
: RIP Morgan Freeman
The title is a bit misleading. My first thought was that he's dead.
ˉˉsorry (EUW)
: Simpy not true. Most players are "average"... so it makes sense that most players will be stuck in average elo brackets. Put me on a bronze/silver/low gold account and I will have 70-80% win rate until high gold.
Sorry, I don't fallow. Did i write it weird and left room for interpretation?
: I cant believe anyone could think its a buff honestly.
I don't really care about it, it doesn't affect me, but i was hoping that maybe finally he will be content with this.
Rismosch (EUW)
: Yeah, but what has this to do with "overthinking"?
But I said, new players, assume that they need to know all the roles and have big champion pools to play, but that's not necessary, they're overthinking this
Rioter Comments
Rismosch (EUW)
: > New players tend to have massive champion pools for each role with counters in mind, which doesn't really matter if you want to climb and play all the roles. But what has this to do with "overthinking"?
Because none of that matters.
L0onster (EUW)
: no choice... like i said i've tried being calm not tilting hasn't worked for 3 years.
Then why do you play this game? I'm sure not having a stable champion pool, not being able to buy skins or keep the ones you get from chests should be quite frustrating. This probably adds to your tilt and makes you less care about your account, which just makes you even more likely to flame. You can't even have any decent progress.
Rismosch (EUW)
: I still don't get it.
I guess a better word could be "overcomplicating". His first tip is to play few champions. New players tend to have massive champion pools for each role with counters in mind, which doesn't really matter if you want to climb and play all the roles.
L0onster (EUW)
: real life i got good self control this game just tilts me... so i embrace it.
You shouldn't embrace such a negative aspect of yourself.
Breakhz (EUNE)
: i know..but really from 5 milion players 4 mil+are stuck in low elo...Thats really harsh to believe.Im pretty sure some of them are good enough but as you say..not siingle player experience.
You're missing a major part of what ranked is, you climb by proving that you are better than those around you. Think of ranked as a HUGE tournament it's just that players don't get dropped out of the tournament if they lose they just move down a bracket. This means each bracket is half as big as the previous one. This creates pyramid-like player distribution(actual one is a bit different).
L0onster (EUW)
: tried not flaming tried load of stuff... always get banned so i just embrace it riot wont remove chat for an account for me so this is what i do.
So you just gave up? Can't control yourself no matter what. It's a problem, good self-control is something that you need in real life. Why do you even play this game then? by changing accounts like that you can't make any decent progress and you just waste your money.
Breakhz (EUNE)
: What i dont believe is truth that 80% of players are stuck in low elo.Bronze silver gold. I mean i really dont think 80% do deserve to stay in low elo.Thats a huge number.Luck have a huge part on climbing.
League is not a single player experience, everyone can't be winners.

: 'And another one' like my 8th 14 day suspension woop woop.

NeCa020803 (EUNE)
: Matchmaking system
Silver is where new players start. You don't get plats much less even diamonds in soloQ ranked. In normals, sure it's possible, that's because each queue has it's own mmr. Laslty, you're silver 1, this is almost gold, of course you will play with some golds too. There are no hard lines between ranks just because you're silver doesn't mean you can't face gold players.
HSBunny (EUW)
: But that is self explanatory. If you want to improve that's fine. Go into normal games or on a smurf and test your champions limits My first point with playing a few champions and mastering them further enhances that you already know the limits of those few champions. Climbing is different from improving, you can play to improve and be improving but it doesn't guarantee climbing. This post is about the execution. Really Ironing out your skills and improving only matters at Diamond. Bronze to Diamond matters basics more and persistance and consistency Maybe I'm gonna make another topic about Improvement and cleaning up your playstyle
Normals are bad for that they're too inconsistent and if it's a smurf it's likely lower rank and enemies don't make you test those limits. Climbing and improving is different, but they're still connected, you need to improve at the game, which results in climbing higher. > Bronze to Diamond matters basics more and persistance and consistency It's still improving and becoming more consistent is also part of improvement.
íGengar (EUW)
: When exactly do you belong in your rank
When you hit a wall and stop performing well. It's the current rank you belong to. A good indication is that you start blaming others, don't confuse it when you've been blaming it for multiple games and tilted yourself 5 divisions down, keyword is start. Games also tend to feel really hard.
HSBunny (EUW)
: Climb to Diamond without overthinking
I don't think "Don't die" tip is necessary. I think there's a minimum you should die on average. To improve you have to test your champion limits, which means taking a risk that could lead to death. Some players tend to take this tip way too hard, which leads to way too cowardice playstyle. That kind of playstyle also prevents improvement. Sometimes dying for your team to clean up or just to escape with least amount of deaths for your team can be what brings victory to you.
Foxynerdy (EUW)
: Anyone with good knowledge regarding diets/eating properly?
I'm just gonna talk about your breakfast issue: You can skip breakfast, there's a type of diet called intermittent fasting(isn't really even a diet, just a way of eating), which in fancy terms refers to eating only in a specific time period, but in practice, it's just skipping breakfast and eating nothing until lunch except maybe for some tea or coffee, both with no sugar or milk. It's known as a more natural way to eat for humans from an evolutionary standpoint. Professional athletes go so far as to eat only 1 hour a day.
Rumkatten (EUW)
: Riot actually acknowledges the bronze skillgap: "When we looked at our current arrangement of ranks, we found some of our tiers encompass a wide skill range or have too many players—most notably Bronze, Silver, and Diamond." and "We also noticed that we were missing the mark in terms of milestones and goals, especially at Bronze, Silver, and Diamond, where you can improve substantially in terms of MMR without ranking up. " " https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/en-us/2018/04/dev-updates-to-ranked-for-2019/ The bronze skillgap is, among other things, behind the rework of ranked, that will be implemented next season. The best thing about this, though, are that we are now done listening to plat e-heros telling us that you-deserve-it-cause-u-baaad-haha-noob-git-gut. :) Not that I in any way belive they will stop the hate and harassment. Noone is saying that the skill of the individual player is not ultimately the problem, but anyone that have played bronze the last couple of season will have expirienced the insane skillgap that Riot is now adressing. And anyone that have not, should keep their mouths shut about the matter.
People tend to misunderstand what Riot meant when they said those things and don't understand the actual issue Riot is trying to solve here. The issue is more related to uneven LP gains in those specific leagues than with whatever players assume here. Usually, players get around 25 LP per game and lose 19, but in diamond it's more around 20 and less( i wouldn't know what's going on in bronze, but judging from some threads it has similar issue), which means on average it takes more games to get from one division to another. This also reflects in how people talk about their ranks: players are silver, gold, and platinum, but when it comes to diamond you're either high diamond or low diamond, there's no just diamond. Bronze, as far as I know, is split into bronze and stuck at the bottom of bronze. What Riot wants to do is to give players a more smooth climb, but if you were stuck in bronze 5 you're likely to remain there, it's just that the name will change.
Mcgalakar (EUNE)
: So true. Got out of the bronze with almost no loses, winning even some of 4 vs 5 games. On the second hand, maybe Author is right and a skill level in EUW is so much lower than in EUNE?
The actual difference shows up at a high diamond.
: Can't outplay bad teammates. Also can't carry 1v9.
You're right you can't carry 1v9, but thank god this game is a 5v5

I just gave examples of what is counterplay, nothing specific. Kayle does scale well into a late game. Some champions are late game scaling others are early game and kayle has a pretty atrocious early. She's also really one-dimensional and all her damage is low range.

For someone calling me a kid, I find it rather childish of you being unable to control your emotions and getting banned. Either way, we used to have increasing chat restrictions, but judging from the fact that we don't have them anymore it can be deduced that it didn't work.
: How can i comeback from the worst losing streak ever?
Sounds like you went on a tilt and kept playing with those negative emotions. I think a break from the game for a week or 2 could help. You should really learn to recognize it much earlier.
DrillDoc (EUW)
: On the contrary its perfectly consistent algorithm, it simple check if you died more times than a threshold at the certain game time and flags you for inting, keep it below that or grief in other ways and you will never be banned from system...
There are some other factors. I think it also includes some stats. At one time 0 damage Tryndamere challenge appeared and some players got banned for intentional feeding with really reasonable KDA. I've seen some threads, where people complained about intentional feeders not getting caught, that seemed obvious enough and should've triggered the system, but didn't. There are also those that got caught after a single game.

It doesn't seem you understand what counterplay is. For you if champion kills you he has no counterplay. I bet you want an item that makes you immune to that specific champion. Counterplay is usually small things in their kits that help you play around them. It's when Kled uses his ult and you hear his trumpet signal so you know he's coming from somewhere and you can prepare for it.

: 3/5 games already a leaver in ranked provisionals... PLS HARSHER PUNISHMENT (lowprio-queue?)
Harder punishments wouldn't really help, being AFK usually is out of that player's control.
Hydnoras (EUW)
: That would just make matchmaking worse. The biggest problem with your suggestion is that it ignores mmr completely. I can be in silver 1 for example with plat mmr so i should play against plat players and not silvers so your system is simply not a valid option. Not to mention there are so little amount of players in specific leagues to really get a good and balanced match.
I wouldn't say it ignores MMR completely, I think those names are given only for specific leagues(i wouldn't know the exact details here). Players would still likely be in the same MMR brackets. I would say the bigger issue here is that it just gives another search condition for the matchmaking system, increasing its time, for what is basically just a cosmetic aspect of ranked.
