: Is plat really that toxic?
It's a fallacy that higher elos are different than lower in terms of attitude. You still get hardstuck players crying at their team mates for their own deaths.
: We're Silver, stop dodging
If you are smurfing then no. But why would equally challenged players not get gimped by someone taking stupid picks? You are incorrect, the game is very losable in champ select at all elo's barring smurfs.
: Diamond made me quit the game
Im a G2-G3 Rengar player so using him as an example, having bad teams does not make a difference with the champion you pick. Even if you manage to get a lead on those champs, it won’t make a difference if your team that game gives enemy free gold, at least as far as straight up combat goes. You still can’t assassinate enemies because they are probably as strong as you from all the free gold they were given, and they die first in fights too, leaving little room to cleanup fights which is easier in lower tiers. As a jungler, all I take from the game is that I did my job the best I could, what I didn’t do well I try to change going forward. Warded for lanes, counter ganked when I could, and counter jungled when I could. It sucks to freely lose games but for those free losses, there are free wins too, if you are not too tilted enough to capitalise on those. It’s also harder to see the wood for the trees in terms of your gameplay when you lose alot, I tend to switch to my secondary account that I don’t care about. For some reason us lol players are too attached to accounts and elo when truth be told, nobody gives a shit what your rank is or who you are unless you reach Master/Challenger.
: ´Silver 4 but have silver 2 mmr nad get 15 lp
I believe this is linked to your winrate. If you have a low winrate for example 10 wins in 30 games, your points will still be bad even if you win 10 in a row. If you were 30 wins and 30 losses and won 10 in a row, your points gained at the end of that win streak will be alot higher. The system looks at your winrate vs the players you are with, if you have a consistently high win rate and winning games, your points go higher. LP is not linked to MMR directly but it is influenced by it. Pay more attention to winrate when considering LP gains and losses rather than MMR. Think about it logically, if you have a poor winrate vs silver players, you are not giving the system confidence you are good enough to climb fast so small LP gains are given.

: How are you meant to deal with Rengar?
As a Rengar OTP there are plenty of things we fear or hate with a passion through sheer annoyance. Allow me to list them: Guardian Angel Ninja Tabi Zhonya's hour glass Teams that have multiple tanks (2 or more, is usually a big problem) Multiple Champions within the same team with low cooldown CC or Shields (Morg, Thresh, Janna, Zyra, Ahri, Xerath, Riven) We get peeled hard by these. Champions with mobility and slipperyness (Zed, Yasuo, Fizz, Akali, Ahri) We struggle to stick to these or just get taken out just as quickly as we can take them out. AD or Auto Attack counter champions (Udyr, Jax, Xin, Rammus) We get outright hard countered by these if they play right. Stasis/Untargetable champions and effects (Zilean, Xayah, Zhonya's hour glass, Fizz, Vladimir) We get cucked by these effects, our windows to act are small, these effects cancel out those windows of opportunity. Champions who have an ultimates designed for battles and or AOE team fights and does not require planning or much thought to launch, ours takes time and planning to use, so caught unawares, we are cucked. (Vi, Hecarim, Lee Sin, Malphite, Orianna, Annie, Fizz, Zed) As Hecarim you want to make sure your buffs are warded before you take them incase Rengar invades, if he does back off and call for laner, they should come. If the Rengar is smart he will leave if contested without an advantage (you warded the bush and brought the buff out). Use your advantages against him. Rengar is not a generally good ganker pre-6. If you can cancel his ganks with well timed E, it will piss him off. At 6, you can use your E & R to countergank and cancel him out. If he is building full Assassin, get tabis and 1 armour item and he will not touch you unless he has no other target. Mid game Hecarim should have no issues vs Rengar, just take care when farming to not have him pounce on you.

Focus on achieving your expected outcome every time you engage in combat. (Biggest point here is to THINK about what the outcome will be, not just DO IT for the yolos).

I've played this champion for so long, it doesn't make sense to stop now :). The fun part is more important to me than the climb. My point still stands. In bronze, low APM champions are better to pick to gain an understanding of the game whilst not fighting with the mechanics of a champion. For me its a different story, it's not the maining of a champ I wanted, but the fact I love the champ.

Supports are worst and then junglers. Yes, its usually given in Plat ELO if they are winning or even. I was talking from the perspective of a Platinum player, in silver elo, if I was smurfing. I would always just take it. I never pass buffs to bad players, only when Im playing bad myself.
: Placements = Demotion
7 years, and you are still Gold? I think you are Gold because you just 'Play'. You don't get better at the game and focus on what is important to get better. Rather you are performing the same actions for 7 years expecting something different.
: All of you take ranked way too seriously.
I also play ranked this way. People take it more seriously and match balancing seems to be far more on point that normal games. EG my games are made up of low plats to high golds. Normal games can have Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze players.

: Well i do smurfing basically every season with 2 accounts so i can tell you from the picture that you simple play wrong champions for silver. Mid lane overall isn't a very good lane to carry silver. Top lane is far better because it's more isolated so you can stomp the lane and get big in peace and then just run over everyone. I'm a mid lane main but i switch to top in low elo. Especially a champion like ryze, who has very limited range, doesn't have that high carry potential with teammates who have no idea what they are doing. Low elo junglers do not even give blue buffs to mid laners very often so playing mana hungry champions isn't ideal.

: What can i do whit such teammates ??
No, no you can do that. You win the shit out of your lane so hard, you roam to other lanes, kill them and take their towers, you then take dragon and rift herald and stomp on more towers. Some games arent winnable, looks like you had a decent enough lead to do something with this game but you did not.

You also get free wins from enemy AFKs and your allies being good, you just dont remember them as much. The system works fine, get better and learn how to use your team, even if they are dummies they still have a use, punchin bags...
: When is the best time to do placements?
Logically it makes sense to do them NOW. As majority of players are bronze and silver, so you are likely to meet alot of them in placements. I guess it also depends on MMR. Ultimately it doesnt matter where you are placed, your attitude and willingness to be better as a player and accept defeat is how you climb.

I relish losing placement matches, I like an easy start to my climb :). Also shows that bronze and silvers who complain, are at that rank for a reason.

Some people posting are such whiny little %%%%%es. Jesus, its aram, who actually cares.
: This game feels so worthless to play.
Imagine if there was a reason for all those things happening, besides your team mates being bad. I dont gank lanes that feed, have no CC or have little to no follow up early. Similarly I dont gank lanes much who have annoying champions to kill, Fizz, Ekko, Vlad etc... There is no point whatsoever in reeling off examples of what has happened because NOTHING you could have done, would change it (people feeding, buying wrong items or flaming). If the game was really that bad and you couldnt carry, you need to brush the game off and start a new one. There are things you can do to prevent yourself from losing as many games, you just need to learn what they are. Too many people cling onto games that really dont matter. The reason people get upset about losing games they played well in, is because it probably doesn't happen very often so they feel they should have won.
elin990 (EUW)
: Bronze elo makes me want to quit league
It's actually very simple maths. Assuming you are not feeding, which evidently you are in quite a few games (most people feed at some time or another). There should be up to a maximum of 4 feeders on your team and 5 feeders on the enemy team, because you are playing good. You remember all the bad games because human brains do that, they dont remember the times you played well. Also, players in Bronze make just as many mistakes on both teams, you are just not good enough or experienced enough to see them. Examples of mistakes in low elo include...Bad gank paths, lack of wards, leaving objectives uncontested and unwarded, diving when they shouldnt (no flash or Zhonya ready etc), being overly aggressive without cause (didnt notice ultimate is down), being too passive (enemy jungler top, make a play now, or Your jungler comes in but you dont notice cause you are farming as adc) Finally, smurfs exist so if your team is getting battered really hard, chances are, you are not dealing with a bronze player.

Here is your problem, I see no issue with this clip.

You underestimate his power here. He does exactly what a fed darius should be able to do vs a clumped up under leveled weak enemy team. I bet also no armour penetration and no magic penetration. Poor CS.
: Is master yi top viable ?
You will get shit on by just about every meta top laner, and even lower tier ones like Tryndamere. Champs like Riven, Fiora, Jax, Renekton, Teemo, Darius, Kled. They will all pound your little ass easily.
kmph2mps (EUNE)
: Elo hell - is it real?
There is no such thing, there are very few champions who are NOT dependant on at least some of their team. Tanks = Start fights and rely on carries to do damage quickly and efficiently whilst they, erm tank? Assassins = Rely on Tanks, supports, control mages and Fighters to start fights and cause chaos so they can assassinate high priority targets. ADC's = Rely on supports, tanks, mages or fighters to peel for them. Mages = Can be a self supporting class but still rely on tanks and fighters to start fights. Fighters = Are not strong enough to straight up engage fights, they rely on Tanks or Tanky Supports (Thresh, Blitz) to start fights and go in 2nd or 3rd. Jax and Irelia are two champs that require less of their team if they are doing well. Someone has already pointed out the Math, if you are decent and don't feed/play well, enemy team has higher chance of having someone screwup harder than your team accounting for the fact that you are not feeding or playing badly.

1) People have bad experiences and thus remember those more than good ones, so they ban the feeding ezreal in the last game, so you dont get to play him this game because of that. 2) I ALWAYS ban new champs in ranked for the first month, people cannot possible know the champion well enough to perform decently on them so there is a high chance you will be 4v5 that game. (On the otherhand they could be overtuned) 3) People like to troll, especially if your name is offensive. 4) People legit didn't look or see you had the champ selected and ban it out by accident of not looking.

To Carry out of Silver. 1) Mute all players. 2) Do not ever type. 3) Play hard carry champions and absolutely destroy your lane/jungler. If your KDA is not at least 3.0 + and your objectives and towers taken is not the most in the game, you are not carrying hard enough. 4) Don't play support unless auto filled. 5) Realize your rank is just an estimate, it means nothing. 6) Realize you are bad and are making as many mistakes as everyone else is (This is what I tell myself everygame).

l MrD l (EUW)
: How to carry someone who refuses to listen and plays extremely badly?
If they don't listen to you, then you have to bend to their will. As a jungler if someone is doing something stupid, I will try to stop it happening by anticipating it. Example, if the Jinx is solo farming at bot with tier 1 tower down, Go and ward for her and stick around for 30 seconds, someone WILL show up soon and try to kill her, you know its happening to try and do something to get something out of it, the Jinx may die but at least you may get a kill from it and shutdown whoever it is that comes. If they are too big for the both of you to kill, you should have started doing this sooner. Granted its not always possible to do this.
: How do i prevent falling off lategame as a jungler?
I think the context of the post is misleading, he appears to be referring to falling behind in XP. The answer is simple, don't do anything for the next few minutes except farm as many camps and un-occupied lanes as possible EXCEPT when your team wants to take an objective or the enemy is trying for it, so keep them warded. Camps give catchup XP which is going away next patch I believe, at least it is getting a nerf. So learning to be a good jungler, farming, objectives, countergank and counter jungle, you will need to be good at atleast 3 of those 4 if not all.

Take it as a potential and unavoidable loss, even when playing your best. You rolled the dice and didnt get it this game. Thats what I do. Just the system playing its part in making a healthy game, nothing you can do about it.

And I got it :) even through playing against Smurfs Because a 'Smurf' is what people might call an irregular factor in what would otherwise be a balanced equation (Elo rating). Whilst I may not encounter them all that much in Gold and thus dont use it as an excuse. I would imagine that they are far more prevalent in higher Elo because people are sick of waiting to play games so they make smurfs, people in Diamond and High Plat see them more. Plus the sheer number of players in Gold and Silver FAR FAR outweigh smurfs.... In other words, players should not have to destroy competition that are entire leagues above them unless their win rate is very high. His win rate is 60% so I guess that is why its happening, he also has a very small pool of games played.

: Ok thanks very much for the reply.I will start playing warwick,Zac alot more in ranked but could i still play kha'zix in normals and then once i rank up i will be good enough to play the high APM champions such as kha?
Yeah do it! Once you become good at the champ and rarely do poorly, you should perform ok on average. One tricking is a good way to get to high elo but it requires spot on mechanics of the champion and game knowledge, something you are still developing. So easy champs are another way to climb.
: Is 100% crit Yi a viable trollbuild?(for climbing gold)
Define what a normal build is? If they have very little peel, no hard cc or no burst etc then high damage builds work good. He is an auto attack champion so yeah, full crit would work, the only problem is, he is blown up very easily. He can get similar amounts of damage whilst building slightly more safe, EG 4 damage items, boots and a defensive item like Dead mans or GA.
: If anything, Leona is in need of buffs or even a kit update. She is too one dimensional to be good outside of low elo where people don't dodge her E early, allowing her lane to snowball against them. However, if her lane does not snowball and she doesn't get a significant gold advantage over the enemy team, Leona becomes borderline useless, she she risks getting blown up before her team can follow up. Her AoE CC is situational. This is why outside of Bronze and less often Silver, she is rarely played. Other tank supports offer way more, with less risk to themselves.
I think you over value bronze and silver players. I mained her alot, even in high gold people make these same mistakes. I have about 20 games played this season, so not many, but I still have about 18 wins or so.
Lyrcaxis (EUNE)
: a) first of all try playing champions that require a higher APM(Action per minute) - and by require, i mean, having more to do than just right-click after joining the fight.(Kha'Zix is a good champion for practice but most efficient would be lucian, around 20 games as him would top your APM, provided you try to make his full combo as fast as possible) b) Play smart - going ham as Mundo or Jax may sound fun, but with more specialized champions like Kha'Zix, you'll have to spend some time waiting and unwarding the side-bushes till you catch someone off guard, then make sure you're safe, and repeat.(There are lots of tactics I won't be talking about here) c) Communicate with your team - and by that, I mean: use Pings; especially the "I'm going" and "Retreat/Danger" ones. d) Have the correct itemization; in your last game with Kha, you had like 3 armor items, and they had 1 champion that dealt physical damage, and 4 that dealt magic damage. This made about 5000 of your gold go to waste. (Note that when you're vs a heavy-tank enemy team, you NEED to get Armor Penetration/Magic Penetration, unless you're a tank) Well, I said all that, but to be frank here, you can rank-up from bronze just by knowing how to farm and not waste time doing nothing. If you can manage to farm well, say, have like 140 farm by minute 20(max is ~200), you can literally carry, given most people in bronze will have about 40 by that point. tl;dr: Improve your APM, farm well, use pings, build correct items, have fun.

This made about 5000 of your gold go to waste.

He is in bronze 2 and you are telling him to play HIGH APM champions that are relatively complicated? He is still learning the game, or at least training his mind for it. Having to think about what buttons he needs to press should be bottom of the list for now. I suggest you watch the first 15 - 20 minutes of this coaching video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZr_bmRLOXc What he says is self evident in your match history. Look at all your tanky, low APM easy to play champs. You have a high KDA on them, and that is for a reason. Because they are easier to play. Low APM champs - Sion, Amumu, Zac, Vi, Warwick - All easy champs, you have the highest KDA on these champs, especially Zac. High APM/Technical champs - Kha'zix, Twisted Fate, Jhin, Jax, Victor, Ivern, Tryndamere all terrible KDA Of course KDA is not everything but it is a great indicator on how well you play the champion. Some of those bad champs you only played one game, but still, its indicative of all the hard champs, being well....hard to play. TLDR, stick to easy champs and farm properly. Orianna, Sona, Janna, Amumu, Zac, Sejuani, Malphite, Vi, Warwick, Jinx, Lucian, Master Yi.
