: So, this means I need to put, for example, 6 glacial champs on the field for this mission? Sometimes I really don't understand what Rito wants from me and I complete missions randomly xD
Yes, and probably play them 1 full round at least.

> If my support doesn't hit a heavy cc nothing like this will happen. Your W is a very nice kind of hard CC. It is not much good as a damage source, but it is great for catching. All you need is your support hitting your target once with any kind of damage. Once you root enemy in place you can auto and Q. Would be very good, if that's you 4-th auto. Aaaaaand... that's mostly all in that foregoing 'all in'!
Krimkrise (EUW)
: How to play against Lux
Poke her. Lux can't heal herself, and she hardly can cast her shield in time once you do an auto. Her cooldowns are short, but not that short, and she's got only 1 hard CC (on her Q). You, on the other hand, have a very nice boost of speed on every crit. And you also have your cartridge that may ricochet to her if she is close enough. And you can deal a lot of damag with that single hit. Also, you can shield yourself with minions: her Q will hit no more than two entities on its way. Another weakness of her is her mana: she can't just spam infinitely. While you can save mana, doing mostly autos. {{item:3094}} helps a lot to poke. And {{item:3009}} help you to sidestep skillshots. But TBH, yes, offensive support is a hard matchup currently. Especially when they spam and oppress you without a stop. IMO mana hunger is the only thing that in current meta can stop such bullies as {{champion:99}} {{champion:63}} {{champion:45}}
: >Nah. I'm not gonna create a witch hunt over something as insignificant as this. There's no witch hunts involved. If someone wants to dispute a moderation action, it just ends up in a discussion and review. No one gets into trouble, so there's not really anything to worry about there. If anything, these are actually helpful (when legitimate). There is no set bar for these things with how "mean is mean" and how "we're being oversensitive". These end up fostering discussions where we can kind of realign a bit better. >I agree all people have different points of views, but this is just being oversensitive to something random for no reason. I didn't flame anybody, simply stated what should be the obvious, but I guess my choice of words gave the other party the ''upper hand''. Rendering the entire text as ''offensive'' over one word that wasn't used as the mod describes. I don't know the full context of the thread to be honest, but personally I agree that this was maybe a bit OTT. But I also don't have your history handy either. There's a decent amount of contributing factors that go into these decisions, not just "this comment has a bad word or is mean". >''Don't respond in an argumentative manner'' ....this is how arguments work...you argue.. that's why it's called an argument. But the thing is, I didn't respond as they say in their text ''in an argumentative'' manner, I responded in a sarcastic manner. Yeah this is more to clarify on the point of maliciously worded posts, like the above that I answered to attempt to foster discussion. But it's also to hone in on having _**debates**_ rather than arguments - argumentative indicates that the situation has deteriorated at that point.
Oh, I can give you full context, because I am that other guy. I already removed the topic in question, but basically it was a gameplay suggestion in "Creations & Concepts", concerning supp items' mechanics. I suggested to change them and added a poll to see what other people think of this. Very soon I get a comment that you can see on the screenshot provided by TS. Ten minutes later after I run out of ideas of what could I answer to that 'stop having ideas' message, I just hit 'report' and choose 'offensive' checkbox. It seems, the message have been removed after all. And several hours later I killed the topic, because most people said me my suggestion was bad. That's all the context you can get.
: You're forgetting the fact that the people playing in that elo apparently have the skill level on that champ of that elo. As long as you always play to win, you never bother anyone.
> You're forgetting the fact that the people playing in that elo apparently have the skill level on that champ of that elo. Only they get a kind of normals in their ranked instead of competitive environment fit for thir skill level. > As long as you always play to win, you never bother anyone. A lie.
: You don't understand a big part of what I just said: - I don't ruin any games for anyone, because I'll be out of those leagues within no time, so I'm not taking away anyone's competitive environment - they can still learn on a different account, they'll just be placed in iron. I never touch iron, so they still have a place. - even if you're iron, you can still use a different account to learn on in ranked. Even if its not easier to learn for them per se, but because you just don't tank your main. Since I'll always be playing to win, I will never be intruding anywhere. The provisional matchmaking change from this year made sure of that.
> You don't understand a big part of what I just said Oh I understand what you _say_. I just do not trust your estimates. > they can still learn on a different account, they'll just be placed in iron. I never touch iron There's always bottom. Where do THEY go when their living space is taken by upper league players who want to practice in easy risk-free environment? > even if you're iron, you can still use a different account to learn on in ranked Ah but you forget one little detail, their 'competitive' space is not competitive any more because it is overrun but higher-Elo players who use it to practice on a secondary acc that is of no value to them (and therefore, there's no need to care about match result).
: Within 3 games of playing ranked on that account I'm basically silver 4 already. When I started playing adc on my smurf, I actually lost my first few games cause I didn't have proper champion knowledge, only after a few games I started climbing, and so did my rank and Mmr. Soon I was playing balanced games again. Same with midlane now, I'm trying to learn zed, and if he's not banned, I usually lose lane to silvers, cause I have no clue how zed mechanics work. Yes I have plat level map awareness and game knowledge, but that's truly not going to carry every game. Since my champion or lane knowledge is low, I'll play balanced games, because low elo is less team based, and more winning lane based. As I learn I'll climb, and I'll keep playing balanced games. Provisional games start you out in like bronze 1, and then give 60 lp per win if you do it right. I'm not bothering any actual bronze players. Hell, my first ranked game on my smurf I was matched with high silver and low golds, I lost 3 games in a row on my newest account. You really don't have to worry about me ruining games. On some champs I'll play like a truly new player. And I'm not about to play normals, cause I'll just get my ass kicked each game and learn nothing. > And where will those guys learn their newbie mechanics if they want to change a role? They can make the same choice I did. Either play normal games, or make a smurf. They're free to make a new account, put a lot of time and effort into leveling it, and then trying out the new champ or lane on their smurf without having to worry about tanking their main MMR or rank. I'm not stopping anyone.
> ...When I started playing adc on my smurf, I actually lost my first few games cause I didn't have proper champion knowledge > ...I'm trying to learn zed, and if he's not banned, I usually lose lane to silvers > ...I have no clue how zed mechanics work. > ... Yes I have plat level map awareness and game knowledge > ...They can make the same choice I did. (except that they can't because you took away their competitive environment where they could learn, and they can't go three leagues below to the next sub-bronze or sub-silver) That is exactly what I call the wrong mindset. Exactly the reason why smurfing accs should be as much expensive as possible to make and maintain. This is the best reason to make this 5-lvl ranked requirement, ever.
: I want to be able to play a new role or a new champ in a competitive setting. Normals are not a competitive setting I can't suddenly start playing adc in soloqueue on my main, since I've always climbed with top or jungle, which I'm better at. If I'm say, plat 4 with top/jungle, and I start to play adc in ranked on my main, I'll feed and feed since I'm bad at that role. So if I have a smurf account where I can start playing adc, and learning as I climb, it's a much smoother experience. Currently learning to play zed on my smurf
Ah that's very good that you want a place to learn. But what's about those other 9 people every game who get a teammate like that? Have you thought of them? You know, those bronze guys who try to play serious in a competitive environment of their own at the top of their skill, and suddenly they have an adc with 0 champion experience and platinum-level basic skills and knowledge? And where will _those guys_ learn their newbie mechanics if they want to change a role?
ˉˉIˉˉ (EUW)
: No. Champion level has nothing to do with knowledge and imagine the pain if you started maining a new champ and had to play 20+ normal games just to be allowed to play him in ranked. This would be ridiculous. Also, think about smurfs or people who played the champ during free rotations before.
In free pick you can get to level 4, I think.
: You thinking that smurfs are stopping this from happening is ignorant as hell. The real argument is that it would prevent people from swapping champions in champion select. THAT is what prevents this from ever being a thing and nothing else.
I never said that smurfs stop this from happening. I said that smurfs would downvote this into oblivion (meaning that Riots won't even see the topic). It is not the same thing. > THAT is what prevents this from ever being a thing and nothing else. No. What really prevents it from happening is that Riots do not see the described issue as a problem, at all. If they decide one day that it needs fixing, they will re-design it all from scrap in no time and throw it into our faces. Just remember how Draft pick appeared all of a sudden. And then autofill feature.
: What's wrong with smurfs?
Wrong MMR Wrong Elo Wrong punishment rating Wrong mindsets behind those accs.
JustClone (EUNE)
: I tried to explain you once... I will try one last time, being as basic as I can get. {{champion:119}} is throwing axes at people for 1k dmg. {{champion:238}} on the other hand should evaporate him, so he stops throwing axes, as fast as he can. It is normal. And here comes the deal. If {{champion:117}} is not totally incompetent, and can Heal+shield + turn that {{champion:238}} into woodland critter... While at the same time {{champion:119}} is also decent player, and kites and positions well during the fight... It is obviously impossible for zed. On the other hand, if {{champion:119}} just got demoted to IRON 4, and {{champion:117}} is his 10 yo little brother, with the motor skills only capable of cylindrical grasp... the case is closed. So what I am trying to tell you as short as possible. COMPETENCE DECIDES. If you cannot play adc, let it to gosu and tyler and pick anything that does not require such mechanics.
Ah but there's only one little detail you forgot to mention: {{champion:119}} throws an axe for 1k damage at... two items, I think? Or maybe three? ************* > If {{champion:117}} is not totally incompetent, and can Heal+shield + turn that into woodland critter... Also you: > If you cannot play adc Kappa.
: 1 - I agree about the smurfs and boosters... it's kinda retarted if diamond player plays in bronze account to boost his newbie friend that will get carried let's say to platinum and then drop back in bronze while ruining people's games because he simply doesn't belongs there. 2 - About the flamers you can just mute them and play your game, in games where someone decides to feed or troll/not even try you should stop be trying too and move to the next game because there is no point to waste your energy in such games. 3 - About tutorials... really dude? You need tutorial for pressing 4 keys that have description which explains what they do? You must be special case... 4 - That's your own problem how you spend your time. If you are like me, being able to play only after work for 2-3 hours and whenever you got any free time left during the weekend then you shouldn't even try to play competetive. Play the game for fun and don't bother to play ranked. You can still improve playing that way and you won't get tilted of ranked lose streaks. 5 - About streaming people won't watch you for your rank but for the streamer you are. Theres many casual players that streams league and still gets visitors and you can also stream many other games not just league.
> 3 - About tutorials... really dude? You need tutorial for pressing 4 keys that have description which explains what they do? You must be special case... No, you need tutorials to explain such things as lethality, armor shred, grievous wounds, early and late champs, and those 120 unique champions that you encounter from the day 1. > being able to play only after work for 2-3 hours and whenever you got any free time left during the weekend then you shouldn't even try to play competetive Ah this would be nice to be added to the tutorial, too. Because you see: most adult people can play only in the evening, 2-3 games a day. And besides ranked, there's nothing much to do in league. No goal. No real reason to play.

: Testing champions in ranked games.
Won't work. Smurf users will downvote you to hell in no time. Riots kinda know of this (they answered the question long ago) but they don't give a shot about it.
: Um no. I have multiple accounts, if I want to play a champ I'm lvl 7 on on my main, on my smurf, I don't want to level it to lvl 5 first. Hell, I have a smurf where I only play champs I never play. I've v been trying out zed on my smurf, haven't touched zed in years on this acc
Ah. Another reason to implement this ASAP. Smurfs must suffer.

This is why I cough when I say EUW person) :) In the end, everything he wrote was okay, but everything I copied from him and changed like 1 word, was offensive and racist. :D Those bords are charming place.
Ehm... Have you tried actually _reporting_ him for being offensive?
: Just add pink ward trinket already, 180 cd with 1 charge, and make it optional to buy extras, or even better yet make the supp item place pink wards with a high cd and 1 charge.
Won't work. Additional slot for pink only needed because you want a free choice between setting a stealth ward and setting a control ward. The same problem between lens and wards: you want different keys assigned to them if you have both.
Lethandar (EUNE)
: TFT reselling champions star 2+ level
I don't agree even with the problem described here. You lose gold in case you sell 2\* champion at least. And this loss is kinda happens instead of losing gold for rerolls. You either sell your silver champion, or you roll until you turn it to gold.

: why ashe now builds trinity?
Everyone seems to build Trinity nowadays. Everyone wants attack speed, CDR, mana, movement speed and sheen passive at the same time. On Ashe, though... seems to be just a flick of fashion, because she relies upon criticals so much. Some pro korean guy built it probably, and here we are. PS: I think, movement speed and CDR are the real reason to build Trinity everywhere you can. Kinda... having this amount of damage in game, every exchange of attacks may result in a kill. And every new kill may result in a harsh snowball. And that may happen if an enemy can force a battle upon you. And that he can if he moves faster than you in general. So... additional movement speed is a must.
: Wow. So you are bad and toxic? Why am i not surprised that a silver 4 who can't climb on braindead champs like brand would complain about burst. :/
Wow you can't say anything in your defense, because there's nothing to say, so you attack me again. Congrats. To be honest, i _am surprised_. I always think of people too good, it seems.
: Only assassin to recieve any attention recently is Evelynn and you haven't included her. Assassin's are neither weak or strong right now. They are still terrible lategame and strong midgame. They haven't been in patch notes because they aren't overpowered. If you're a marksman player complaining about assassins then this would make sense. But midlaners who play mages who do assassins jobs better and have access to zhonyas and 800ap shouldn't be complaining about burst.
I never said that it happened all at once, have I? > they aren't overpowered > you're ... complaining > have access to zhonyas and 800ap Hmmmmmmmm.

: Just unistal lol
It's not only assassins. It's just burst. VI is not assassin. Renekton is not assassin. Veigar is not assassin. Jhin, Draven and Caitlyn are not assassins, yet they can burst you down within 3 attacks. The tilt between being on terms and being ahead is too great: you either struggle HP for HP, or you just delete your opponent once you do a successful initiation. PS: Garen is not assassin lol! Still being somewhat ahead, he just rolls his Q-W-E-R at you, and that's it.

Rioter Comments
: Do the trolls really exist?
I met at least one recently. A jungler invaded enemy jungle early, got killed by roaming ADC and mid (I lost control of my opponent and did not ping in time). Since that moment thew jungler specfically evaded team interactions and only hunted kills (being fat fed fighter). By evading interactions, I mean: teamfight of any size starts, and jungler, even being very close, just walks away and behind, and stands there until it's over. Then kills occasion low HP enemy champion and goes farming again. When accused directly, took part in one teamfight, got a kill and then started doing the same thing. He did not exactly admit that he was doing it on purpose, but hinted at that strongly in chat and via emotes.
jacktjong (EUW)
: He basically has 2 autoattacks, Q and his normal ones, way too many gap closers, a CC on 6 seconds cooldown, stupid safety from windwall (seriously, a hitbox can be on top of Yas but once he presses W it gets deleted), his R lets him towerdive without getting punished cause it puts him out of harms way, and he still gets a shield and double crit chance (which combined with his 2 autoattacks basically gives him 4+ times damage with like 2 items) Delete his R keeping him out of turret range, delete his shield, delete his double crit chance, and then you have a normal champ.
To be honest, Yasuo is not the only one who's got additional crit up to 100. There's Tryndamere also. Although there's a difference: Tryn should work to keep it up.

Pixelbits (EUW)
: So why is it hard to solo carry as an ADC?
Level difference and burst meta. That's what killed ADC as 'carries'. Even if you're 8/0, fed toplaner will still be 2 levels ahead (because of that share that goes to support). And that means he will delete you in 0.00001 sec. Just like that other guy said here. And even if you're 8/0, you still won't have a way to burst down anyone with a single roll of abilities, except the other ADC/supp. And you still won't have any way to chase those with teleports, dashes and wall surpass. Except Ezreal and Jhin, I think. This meta seems to belong to fighters and those zillions of Zed players (who can shred your armor to 0 in almost any circumstances).
: harry potter?
Yes. That crying ghost in girls' toilet.
: so, how are you reacting to his upcoming rework? are you welcoming it or are you kind of worried about it?
Fiddle has long been in need of rework. I played him a lot last season in Normals, and his kit was already outdated. With all this burst meta, Fiddle's got almost no other way to play other than ambush with his Ulti (and that is not healthy).
: who is your favourite champion?
It was {{champion:25}} until they changed her W and nearly killed her as an aggressive support (IMO). I liked {{champion:127}} a lot, until they reworked her passive and gutted her lane phase I still like {{champion:96}}, but lategame ADC hypercarries are too much dependent on others in this meta So... no love anymore. Only hatred, disdain, jolly sadism and bathing in the tears of helpless victims! {{champion:17}} {{champion:17}} {{champion:17}} {{champion:17}} {{champion:17}} {{champion:17}} {{champion:17}}
: Iv got pulsefire ezreal twice on my main :D. I always disenchant legendaries since there will be times that you need that OE and then you end up disenchanting more skins shards for the same amount when u could have saved in a long term if u had patience to wait more lower tier skin shards that u use for the rerolls.
You know, I have one, too ) From a chest, also. I have never expected that!
: Keep it for now. Disenchant if you get a skin you want but don't have the OE for it, if you get few more skins that you don't like then reroll. That way you have options.
Sounds like a very good advice. Thank you! )

Casket-carrying "Plague doctor"-masked Singed is the worst I payed for. I played Singed much that time, and I wanted a skin, and he had none decent, and then Riots announce this new Kayle and Singed kinda 'gothic' skin serie. So... I bought it immediately. And I still think this is one of the worst skins I own.
