: Could you give me some advice: how to counter assasin mids?
Figure out their winconditions in lane and play around them. I know Zed the best so ill use ham as an example. His Qs deal reduced dmg to anyone beyond the first target so sitting behind minions makes you take a reduced amount of poke. To punish him early shove him under his tower and you can harrass him as a ranged champion. At lvl 3 is when you have to start respecting him, his W+E+Q is his main combo, and thats how he kills you pre 6. His W has 22 seconds cd and is the last ability he maxes so it stays on a long cd for the majority of the game. Be mindful when its up, but once its down youre very safe and can punish him or get a gank in quite easily. You could eventually try to bait out his W by walking up and faking something. Just dodge his shadows Q and never get in range to be hit by both Qs at the same time while his W is up, thats an easy way to lose yourself the trade, and possibly the lane. In terms of items, hourglass delays your sustain and dmg so simply getting seekers armguard first is often fine. Then you can build your mana item and afterwards finish hourglass. While barrier is great, in some cases exhaust can also really work wonders. If youve got any other questions let me know, cheers :)

Noone likes "sub begging" or whatever you wanna call it, sorry homie.

: well i have seen a lot of diamond players that only have mechanics and know how to play and abuse their champs but are god awful at macro play. but idk maybe im wrong :D there is ppl in high diamond that are fine with macro but a lot still aint. maybe fail horrible is to harsh word tho
I dont think you need good macro for lets say d5 (or d4 as it is now) but for high dia and above you gotta be pretty decent. Masters + you have to know what youre doing.
: just passing by to say i'm resisting the urge to downvote this thread cause you're a vladimir main.. after all you could still be a nice guy..
I consider myself a nice guy :^) Anti tilt and ive had the old honor ribbons for like 3-4 years straight. I was a little toxic when i started but not too bad, never got punished since season 4 where i got a few chatrestrictions :x
Wex0r (EUW)
: Mord Rework needs to be a crazy buff to make him relevant
Smashing the same laner repeatedly instead of actually getting objectives is not the same, and doesnt mean that youre sure to win the game. 1 dmg graph doesnt mean anything and its all on you if you cant climb from the second lowest rating in the game. Some games are unwinable, but if youre better you can win more than you lose and thats enough to climb. ESPECIALLY IN LOW ELO. I know very little of morde but that wouldnt prevent me from picking him up and stomping my way out of bronze in a few days at max. Look to improve instead, and actually use your lead to win the game.
Spearki (EUW)
: LS reached masters on morde so its possible but you have to be good at macro and 99.9% ain't good at it even master plays fail horribly at macro most ppl just reach d4 by having mechanics mostly
Decent macro is a must in high dia and above. Obviously its not to the extend of lets say lcs but i wouldnt say that they fail horribly. A lot of rotations are just routine and are expected of you when you get to a certain rank.
: Absolutely agree on the decay. That should be applied to ALL leagues. Maybe not so harsh like in master+ but diamond decay is ridiculous. It could be a 10-15 bank with one removed every two days, for example. At zero minus 25-50 LP per day or two days on lower leagues. While these accounts do not affect matchmaking that much since they barely play that suggestion would actually represent competitiveness and additionally decrease the effect of boosting.
Yeah i think that could be a possible solution.
Rioter Comments
: Hi, Im a returning Diamond player (s6) and have just come back. Feel free to add: Tom The Jungler
Hey, while i appreciate your response youre not quite what im looking for. Im still an active player and i still perform a lot better than those in low diamond, its mostly just to lighten the burden and be two people carrying instead of just one. This means that im looking for someone who also performs above low diamond and from your profile it seems that your peak is D5 0 lp. Besides our rank difference is too high for me to duo with you. Thanks for the response though. Cheers. :)
: This will simply fix itself due to decay respectively your described winrate. Imo they should have instantly reset the ladder when they found out about too high LP gains but that would have "robbed" the artificial progress all players made up to that point. Now it creates this unpleasant experience for some players because Riot now seems to enforce a correction by LP distribution which seem "unfair" to players who initially profited. Yet it is natural that over time more players can reach high ranks, comparer (grand)masters in chess.
I agree that they should initially have reset the ladder, and i also agree that _eventually_ the ladder will be fixed. The issue is that it could take more than a whole season, and thats just not right. As i mentioned people who sat in diamond 5 for several seasons got master tier with very poor winrates. Sure, they might drop out of master tier quickly, but the top of the ladder is still polluted. You just have to play 1 game every 28 days to not decay in diamond, and it doesnt matter if you win or lose. If you play 1 game monthly and you win 16 lp and lose 20, and you win the 40% of the games. Imagine **how long** it will take for them to drop back to d5. Thats where the issue is. Not only are the ranks screwed up, and i honestly feel like theyve lessened the value which sucks if the ranks ever had any meaning to you, like it did to me when i made my own climb. The issue is that its gonna stay this way for a while...
: Thanks for clarification. Just keep in mind "they are not easier to obtain" there is just a wider range of tiers at both sides of the system. You are right, low master is comparable to old d1. It was changed to soften the rough transitions. And it is natural that with time more high skilled players exist - compare the increase of masters/grandmasters in chess so a slight increase is fine imo.
No the amount of players above diamond has doubled, that is making it a lot easier to obtain, and due to the buggy season launch, some people got master tier with 40% winrate. Its ridiculous that some people who were stuck in d5 for years now get master tier because of this system and because riot didnt fix it in time. Their fix is resetting master tier lp, but that doesnt matter when these players should be d5 or d4. They honestly took a steaming dump on ranked this season and im really not a fan of it.
: That's true, especially with new wits end our dear friend {{champion:33}} would struggle! That being said, there are plenty of champions out there (and Yi's nemesis {{item:3157}}) who can really ruin Yi's day :*(
I hate Yis shredding, its like a melee vayne with reset, and more burst. Hate him :(
: Why? He is funny :-) and yes he still streaming
Eh not to me. I hate his screaming and i dislike yi as a champion so not much point in me watching him. Never been a fan of the afk farm 20 min and then just run down and rightclick someone on a smurf and play cool when you get a penta for it. Thats how i see it at least.

: 67% Winrate - can't skip gold, always play promos
Season 7 on my climb to master tier i had 72% winrate all the way up to D3 100 lp and never skipped a division. While i was D3 i played with full master tier and D1 players. (Even had the spicy Rat IRL and Apocalypse duo on my team whilst being D3). Sucks not skipping honestly.

: The new barrier in aram can save you from urgot ult.
Yup, had a friend accidentally do this in a game with me two days ago. Its an interesting interaction, and quite useful in a lot of cases if you know how to abuse it.
: Ranked (Solo/Duo) unfair LP Gains
Im guessing your mmr has to catch up to your rank which might have climbed very quickly due to winstreaks. Its hard to tell but yeah it can be a struggle, mmr can honestly be a bit of a mystery sometimes.
Tarolock (EUNE)
: >Perhaps an opt out option for it would be good. If people really wanted to it seems fair that they can wait for their roles, it would increase the game quality and balance with the trade of being your own time consumption. we assume that the playerbase is the same just for the sake of simplicity, now lets say 25% of them opts out of autofill so their queue time will be longer but they get their desired role, now the rest who does not care which place they play is only 75% of the playerbase now so they have to w8 more for their game to find ppl, and with this we are back to zero, everyone have to w8 longer for games so there is no option to opt out of autofill, the only possible outcomes are either autofill for EVERYONE or autofill for NOONE
I realise its going to hit other players too. Queues wouldnt be AS long since a lot would probably still stick with autofill, but they would be slightly longer for sure. Some are okay with upping their wait time if they get better games though, but trust me, i do obviously realise that it has its drawbacks too. Both systems do.
: Cowsep Master Yi Montage - Best Master in the world
Im sure your montage is nice but ouf, i cant stand Cowsep. Does he still stream?
: WUT??? So you claim that not everyone can be a soloQ-challenger since they are the best 250 players (on EUW, not sure about other regions). I refuse to accept this blaspemy!
Oh my. I just had to check since challenger was previously the top 200. Its not 250 its 300 now. And grandmaster is top 1000. Thats what master tier used to be like........ Having people in grandmaster with 0 (or at least very low) lp seems pretty lame. I dont like that master tier now seems to be the new D1 or D2. I woulda been high grand master despite being sub 100 lp in master tier previously... Not a fan of making ranks easier to obtain zzzz

Due to the bugged lp gains and Riots extremely slow response and refusal to reset the ladder people are getting undeserved ranks, its so lame. Plats or previous d5s now in masters. One thing is that it takes away the achievement for those who got it the real way, another thing is the fact that it drastically lowers the quality of games in high elo. From what I've seen on streams quiality of games in high Elo is almost the same as in mine, which is bad
If you watch a lot of stream youve no doubt heard tons of complaining regarding game quality. Yassuo mentioned the other day how far he has felt his game quality drop in season 8 and especially in season 9. Makes me real happy i made my climb back in season 7, even though that season wasnt perfect by any means *cough* ardents *cough*
: It increases for subsequent dodges, as mentioned already. The timer also increases with each dodge within a certain time period. Your first dodge will be 5 minutes, then 20 etc. So there's plenty of things in place to discourage it. Whilst I get that it sucks, handing our harsher punishments from the get go isn't really fair to those who may have simply just disconnected, or whatever other reason pulled them away from the client before a game. >people should lose 6-10 LP for intentionally dodging, as it just brakes game for others. The client can't tell the difference between me Alt+f4ing or just turning off my computer. Or unplugging the router. Or various other methods.
Or if you have legitimate inters on your team, dont forget the inters :^)
: I'd rather have autofill than 30 min queues in plat.
I get that, however there is one issue with it. It lowers the game quality as you may be forced into a suboptimal role. This matters the most in high elo, but without it queues would obviously be even worse. Perhaps an opt out option for it would be good. If people really wanted to it seems fair that they can wait for their roles, it would increase the game quality and balance with the trade of being your own time consumption. To make it even terms they should have to play with others who also queued up for the role, they shouldnt be let off easy by keeping their roles while others autofill for them.

: MMR problem or what ?
Your rating might have moved quicker than your mmr so its gonna take a little while to catch up.
: I Can't Win Games Anymore.
Honestly, sometimes games just feel _unwinable_, and it might not even be your fault. Or perhaps you have some off days. Your skill is determined by your general play, not a few days where things go wrong. Everyone has those unlucky streaks every once in a while, you just have to power through them. I doubt youve become worse, at least if its just in a short amount of time.
OG Zedster (EUNE)
: In gold or lower he's a GOD cuz people suck. In plat and above people realise what armor is, I've seen yi players going deadmans plate and I couldn't touch him.
yi could just Q zeds Qs and then W the R dmg and he wins easily. Zed has to kite him unless very ahead. Even if yi get hits my Q the W dmg reduction is massive.

Its good seeing someone accept their rating, that being said, this season its honestly the other way around thats a problem.

: I need 4 RP for Snowman Yi so I drew a lovely picture :)
Hah, i love it. That being said redsmite yi slices through rammus, rework the dirty champ :(
: Well i would say that your champs do have a bit to say about your skill evel. Typical some of the support champs like Janna have had a historically large impact on the game compared to their skill cap (mainly talking ardent meta here). Its not a huge deal and you should still be happy with your achievement but personally ill always say a thresh or alistar is better than the janna at the same rank. Again, its not like all players could just use an ardent support and get diamond with ease but theyre not as mechanically intensive and in some cases more forgiving.
Also one thing i forgot to mention, people who are worse are often quick to blame or judge your rank, just ignore it honestly. Back when i was master tier it was like i wasnt allowed to have fun. If i stomp games bcs i play vs plats or dias in normals im a tryhard, if i lose im boosted, you cant win ;p. I dont know if its jealousy, but thats just how some people act.

So you can make separate choise for report this, called "obvious inting". And have all restrictions i suggest only in this choise
So you want different stages of inting? "Unreformed T1 baby lets run it down" "Obvious inting" "Subtle inting" "The hidden int is the deadliest" You already have a category for it, and as Hansiman pointed out, while manual reviews would obviously be optimal, the game is simply too large with like 100+ mil monthly active players. Does the system have flaws currently? Obviously, but its just a really tricky situation, and i dont think its possible to solve in this manner.

: double e to shield yourself with morgana
Well then you wouldnt be able to spam it if someone is in hourglass or its just comming up or you would accidentally selfcast, which could screw over newer players who might not understand it. Besides if you hold down ALT it already auto targets your own champion, so its already in the game. You could always rebind it too.
: Disgusting, so many s8 d5 players in Masters/Grandmaster atm, Literally Unplayable, reset the fkn ladder asap.
Could not agree more. Some people climb a full tier in high elo with a 50% winrate. In season 7 where i got masters i had a 72% winrate all the way up to D3 100 lp and i didnt even skip a division, and it was in like 60 games or more. If i had won games like that this season i would be HIGH challenger its nuts.

You just have to power through it till you get on a good streak again. :)
GrisEric (EUW)
: Ranked solo/duo
Its just bad luck. It sucks and it can slow down your progress but it happens to everyone. Sometimes your team and you are just all on the same page and games are easy, other times they can feel unwinable. Its a team game so there will always be some RNG unless youre playing as 5 premades. Try and be consistent, and make the difference in as many games as possible. In the long run you should reach the rank you truly deserve, even if bad luck can slow you down, sometimes quite a bit. Its frustrating but thats just how teamgames are i suppose.

: Looking for an Egirl ._.
Im a hot egirl OwO. If you can handle me being 188 cm and 85 kg and growing a bit of beard we can make it work baby. :) I also go to the gym 5 times a week...
: Why am i hard stuck?
Well first of all being high gold is just fine. Plat is top 10%, so if youre gold 1 youre probably around top 12%. (Well that was before Riot messed up the entire ranked system this season, im not so sure about it right now, but since youve been gold previously, its obviously not because of the system in your case). Largely you probably just need to improve, you gotta figure out what youre doing wrong and then not repeat it, or maybe you have to be more proactive in your gameplay. There is really no way for me to know as i dont know how you play, but a good place to start is looking back at your deaths every single game, and see which one of them could have been avoided. Deaths are usually due to mistakes, and if it gets you killed its quite easy to spot unlike other smaller mistakes. Now with that being said, LoL is still a teamgame, and youre dependant on your team to a certain extend which can be really frustrating. Luck might get you a division or two above or below your potential, its really hard to tell but generally you should get to where you belong if you play enough games. Problem is in the short term your team and luck can play a fairly significant role. Over all its on you, but your team can certainly have a large influence on how quickly you reach your actual rank. Maybe you need to change your playstyle up a bit if you havnt progressed in a long time. To help more id have to know more about your gameplay. :)

DaneeKiller (EUNE)
: How do you get an S rank?
While it was a really good game for you all aspects have to be good when you want an S score. So even if your kda is amazing, if your farm is lacking then you might not quite get it. I would assume thats the case here, as getting 4.78 cs pr min is fairly low. Also you cant quite compare yourself to the khazix as he is the jungler and they usually have lower cs. Also warding and objective play can play a slight role, but usually its the cs that is lacking, when i see a post like this. :)
Terra (EUNE)
: It's just this season have some major problems that messed up ranks, (just my opinion of course). 1. The matchmaking. 2. The Conqueror rune wich made games chaotic. (balance got broken) 3. Messed up LP gain when season started so a lot of people abused it and reached higher rank than intended. And yes I missed older seasons where to achieve at least gold was really hard than to reach platinum-diamond Today. It feels like when you climb through promos you climb through the same wall regardless of division up to Diamond these days.
I dont understand how it took them so long to fix gaining 30 lp and losing 5. Seems fairly obvious to me that its broken at that point.

: What will be your goal for S9?
I was master tier last season but only played a few games this season to get diamond rewards bcs i wasnt interested in ranked this time around. With the new ranks i might try a bit more and get masters again who knows.
Rioter Comments
: Just had one of those days where you just give up.
I havnt had the greatest day either. It happens :/ While it might not help much, you should know that just moving around in the spawn rarely prevents afk punishments as the system can still detect that you arent doing anything.
