What I say is that Riot should change the champ, if its not fun to play. I did not mean to say that you should change your champs.

I get 17-20lp and I loose 17-20lp and I'm gold1 aswell. My winrate is 56%. Seems fine to me. If you got a high winrate it should not effect you too much if you don't get tons of lp. Though it's very argueable if 55% or is a high winrate.
: Annie might need some love
This is actually a really nice and original idea, I don't know if it would improve annie the way you anticipated, but it would help make the champ unique and I'm a fan of that.

: lost 24/3 howcan you call this balanced game?
Personally, when I loose a game 24/3 I don't get frustrated, because I tried my best. If I win a game eventhough I was 0/5 at 20minutes, that's when I feel bad, because clearly I don't deserve that win. I take a break, take a breath and think about why I performed so very bad and what I can do to improve that. Ofc I'm happy my team carried my useless ass, but I did not perform well and that is my focus and that should be your focus aswell. When I loose eventhough I was ahead, I check the game and see what was the reason why we lost, sometimes it simply is a really bad player in my team, sometimes I did not use my lead well enough or did not go for the right objective/focus the right player. And there are people that will say it's always your fault, but that is simply not the case, it is important to accept that sometimes it is your fault(eventhough you were ahead), but there are games that you cannot carry, because you are not faker and never will be and that's fine.
: another thing to think about, not every champ is "fun" to play like back when soraka was not reworked she was just a mana and hp filler, standing in the back and just healing and filling mana same now, like i would never want to play ivern first he looks stupid and second his jungling is boring af so there are more then just obvious strength related reasons aka meta why a champ is not played in solo q

I am pretty sure that every champ is being played in plat+ and that is higher than what you are therefore there is enough diversity just you feel the need to blame it on "meta" for you not enjoying the game as much aka climb
>I am pretty sure that every champ is being played in plat+ and that is higher than what you are therefore there is enough diversity just you feel the need to blame it on "meta" for you not enjoying the game as much aka climb You might just be right there. Every champ exists and is played in every Elo, I won't argue with that, but some become absurdly rare, because of meta, to the point where I'm just happy to see them in my game, no matter if I win or loose, because I forgot that champ existed. Haven't seen him in 100games. I took the quote("Edit: This does NOT apply to elos lower than low gold.") out as I see it brings no value to the discussion and I just added it because I was frustrated when I added it.

I think Karma and/or brand can deal with the turrets pretty well. I dont think you get the point of my post. I mean that Heimer can take a tower by placing his turrets under a tower. When the tower targets his turrets it takes the tower 3-4 shots to kill 1 heimer dinger turret which i think is ridiculous since by that time he has a new one again so he can basically take a tower without the use of any minions.
Yes, my bad there, did not read it correctly. I get your point now and I totally agree, it should not tank this absurdly much.

: There is value in emey comments. If you turn it off, it does not mean that your own team mates will ignore the comments. And your own team mates, get distracted. dude. chat is flawed.
Most flamers will stop once they realise they've been muted. I also mute players that flame others, not only if they flame me, so if my team does the same we're fine, since everyone muted the flamer. Chat is flawed, it's not perfect, that's how we got pings and emotes. Ofc that's not perfect either, but it works better than just muting everything, at least for me.

GON GING (EUNE)
: NERF KASSADIN PLEASE
You are right, they are not even doing kassadin a favor by keeping him that strong, he just gets baned because of it. They are doing a favor to some other absurdly overtuned champ, that does not get baned because you had to priortize kassa.
: Nerf Heimerdinger turrets
That's kind of what makes this champ unique, don't fight him in his turrets. I think Karma and/or brand can deal with the turrets pretty well.
: You clearly have not understood anything. If a Person _wants_ to Sabotage. The lanes he _would_ choose if what he wanted to achieve was the _highest_ Damage done to the game without being banned then he would choose Support and after that Jungler.

Hello there, I've taken my time to read through this, for anyone unwilling to read through this wall of text: The Poster says Junglers and Supporters sabotage him and he wants players to get baned from ranked when they don't perform to his liking. I won't even bother explaining that they are trying their best, they are just not the best players. Noone is sabotaging you, you're not important enough to be sabotaged.
: If you want those rewards just set the vod to view and walk away... so long as your computer plays it then it will count so you can watch what you want and have your computer play the rest while you do something else
You only have to "watch" a small portion of the game, like 5 to 10minutes, then it will trigger. You also have to be logged in on watch.lolesports.com to make it count towards your reward.
: Best feeling after you see an inting player...
I saw the title and it made me smile before I even clicked on it. I'm not disappointed.
: His cooldowns aren't that high, meaning that if there's a shaco casually walking next to you, occasionally auto attacking you, it's a clone. If he casts spells, he's not a clone. If he builds AP, his non spell attacks are borderline useless. If he builds AD, killing his clone will not be an issue. I mean cmon, is it THAT hard ? I played a full 3 years in dia ELO, shaco was never an issue.
Gonna be honest, I never thought about it that way and that actually helps.

Mostly Bad (EUNE)
: Well the biggest thing that ever tilts me in this game, is seeing a really bad player blame me or someone else. It just triggers some random concoction in my brain that pisses me the hell out. So instead of seeing that, or even worse, feeling that itch in my fingers that makes me wanna type to him how much of a nuisance he is, i mute everyone. But it's not only me, there's plenty of people complaining on the forums of how /mute all is the best option. The best thing about it is that you don't risk getting banned. It is easy to slip when talking to people, one second you have a reasonable chat with someone, and all of a sudden they go full auto asshole on you, and without knowing, you react. I don't like a system that forces me to be buddy-buddy with people who ruin my games and make me waste time. There is literally no fun in playing a game in which one of your teammates is inting, and you can't leave either, so you're stuck in this weird place in which you feel your life slowly getting out of you. It's like being in a place where someone does whatever the hell wants, in your detriment, and you can literally do nothing, but report him at the end and hope for the best. You don't even have a notification if that certain individual got banned or not. The only thing that can release the steam you get in this situation, is to actually flame the hell out of them. I mean that's what people do in other games. But not here, you gotta stay put like a lil doggy and take it up the butt.
First off, muting everyone is way better than flaming them back. Personally I only mute the flamer, but it's still better to mute everyone than to tilt. You play in EUNE, I've never played on that server, so it might be way worse there. Just dont release the steam on your teammates, even if they are the worst humans in the world, that solves nothing and after all it's just a game.

last time i'll answer you because you can't keep it civil, but instead swear and seem to be frustrated. The guys that are otping in challenger are not me, I'm not that good in the game, not even close and I don't pretend to be. Even they constantly complain about certain champs being broken and while they still remain master/grandmaster or challenger their rank constantly changes and a big factor in this is the balancing of the game.

: [10.2] Fear causing Sett Ultimate to deal no damage
: I have gotten feedback reports on weekends and it doesn't mean that only at times of we get the feedback a player is punished; players are punished for verbal abuse everytime because it is an automated bot and even players who are not toxic can get punished if they write toxic words. Not long ago there was a player who wrote the 3 letter abbreviation once (apparently as a joke, towards end of game), didn't have toxic chat history and got 14 day ban directly because the bot sees only words. Intentional feeding is punished rarely; unless players go 0/20/0 in 20 mins, with no cs and no dmg on champs/turrets, they will not be punished for inting and trolls on boards want to label everything as just bad game because they don't even know what is meaning of intentional or feeding. Problem is Friday(evening to night), Saturday and Sunday is the time where players (not just school going kids) get more free time or get drunk or want to have "fun". In general it is better to avoid playing during weekends because of this and if we are playing we should play with chat muted, thinking teammates are botted accounts and just play the coin-flip gambling.
Omg that explains the absurd amount of bad players in the game on weekends, I never thought about it, eventhough its so obvious.
Joułe (EUW)
: NEW CHAMPION MINAH SWIFTFOOT
Hey Joule, I'm just a humble player. I like that this Idea has not been done yet, an overall legfighter, I tried to understand the mechanics, though I dont know Chun Li. I think the timing is really bad for this champ, as there has just been released a champ that uses his body to do the job, {{champion:875}} . The Ult sounds a lot like janna, but it does damage I guess. It sounds very counterintuitive for a melee champ to kick enemies away. Also xin does this.

: Isnt it if a team had first blood before 3mins you cant remake? Or something like that , cant remember have to check the remake topic later haha
I think that was the case a few seasons ago, but I'm pretty sure they changed that. Also his team did not get fb, as ashe just got 2kills, which are the only 2 kills their team has, so the 3kills that cait already had, one of them was fb. Also even if it was fb, it happened at 4:17, when the remake should have already triggered. This should have been remakeable.
Mostly Bad (EUNE)
: Why do we call LoL a multilpayer game ?
I use chat to tell my team what my objective as a jungler is atm, eg "gonna play around herald", so the botlane knows they won't get any love from me in the next 3minutes. Its good to let your team know what you want to achieve so they can help you and play accordingly. Mostly I'm using pings, they help a lot, though I'm still missing the "ward here" ping. I only mute players if they play the blamegame and keep me from focusing. Same with pings, "Enemy missing" spams on a teammate that just died are not helpfull and get muted. I rarely see someone instamuting everyone and honestly it's gonna hold you back if you have chat disabled, as you never know what your team is up to. You SHOULD turn off all-chat, as there is no value in enemy comments. If chat was disabled by default, I'd instantly enable it.
Get Juk3d (EUNE)
: I totally agree, I hate the fact that there is a something named meta. as you said there are a ton of champions in this game and it's not fun to play only the new champs every game since {{champion:875}} is op and {{champion:523}} is op. we haven't seen {{champion:27}} in pro play since the days of dyrus. I'm not saying I like to see singed :d ( who does?) I'm saying there is a champion that is totally forgotten by pro players until he gets a buff to the point that not picking him would be trolling. this method of over buffing a champ and selling skins fr it has been going on for a while in League and it's working for riot so I don't think they will change it, but it's not fun for people who want to play what ever they want. meta slaves will smash us all the time :(
Yeah my biggest concern there is that someone with the skilllevel of silver IV can get gold IV just by playing meta, there he will make too many dumb decisions to carry because the champ can only get him so far. I can see this in jungle a lot, where the enemy does not know how to play the map, but instead randomly does camps, ganks and counterjungles without any plan behind it. But he plays {{champion:2}} , {{champion:56}} or {{champion:245}} so it does not matter if he knows the game or not, because his champ can still maintain him a 50% winrate in a elo he does not belong. This is also frustrating for the teammates of metaslaves, as the metaslaves usually don't know when to be where, as they are basically boosted by a champ. I've seen quite a lot of games lost by a 8/0 sett, that would later be 9/6, because he grouped way too early for no reason, lost pressure top, because he wasn't there anymore, while not being able to pressure another lane effectively. >this method of over buffing a champ and selling skins fr it has been going on for a while in League and it's working for riot so I don't think they will change it, but it's not fun for people who want to play what ever they want.

: Part of what define meta is accepting that the meta is stronger than your skill and that you are therefore "forced" to play only meta. Turns out, you are really not. You only convinced yourself you are. It's really more about unlocking yourself out of this mindset, than "unlocking" the supposedly "unviable" champs.

Rioter Comments
Voltago (EUW)
: We need more bans Riot
The thing is bans should be used for champs that you personally don't like or that counter your champion, right now they are used to ban all the many, many mistakes the Riot balancing team are constantly making. This should not be the case, there have always been some broken champs, but their number was smaller than the amount of bans you could use. I don't see bans as a means to help your teamcomp anymore, they are only erasers for the mistakes made by the balancing team. And there are way to many mistakes to cover them with 5, yes 5, not 10 bans- because you dont have power over the other 5 and most likely some champs are double baned because of that. While more bans might solve this, I'd be happier if Riot tried to balance the game, because right now it feels like they don't put in any effort at all. I think there were times, when Riot genuinely tried to balance the game and there was a meta, there will alway be one, but atm Riot artificially creates a meta around all the new champs by buffing them to oblivion, while others become unplayable. Would more bans solve this? Yes, but it would only be fighting the symptoms, as the real problem is the absurd balancing in this game.
dattista (EUW)
: I'm a little confused
Hey you're right to be confused, in LoL every champ, nomatter the skill required is supposed to be viable in pro play, so an easy champ like Garen will still do huge amounts of damage eventhough hes likely the easiest champ in the game. Sett is a new champ so he will do absurd amounts of damage, like all the new released champs released lately. If that's a good thing is another thing. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}

They might want to fix the W, but on the other hand there are so many way more OP things in the game, that I'd say his W is quite tolerable, especially for a new champ. I'll say his W is great to try and make people learn something very important in this game: moving while fighting. Nothing worse than standing still and AA in a game where you should make your enemy's life harder when it comes to hit skillshots. {{champion:875}} is no excpetion. You circle him while fighting, you have great chances to either dodge his true damage, or his W completely (and while he tries to hit you with that he got a shield anyway, so keep hitting him is pointless).
I know how that its counterable, the numbers are just overtuned. I don't mind the mechanic, I mind the numbers on the mechanic.
: Another nerf? Really?
The aim of this patch IS to take her out of the game and that's fine. It is way more healthy for the game to have an underpowered champion, than it is to have an overpowered one. While nerfing her might take her out of the game, there are still tons of other viable champs and having one champ less does not hurt the game. Meanwhile having an op champ, that is absurdly strong with no clear weakness will effect the game a lot and not in a good way. Many people have been waiting for this nerf and are happy it's finally coming in, I'm one of them. I don't get why you are concerned either, you barely play her. Also you seem to rage a lot about perfectly balanced champs, among others that are actually broken.

Yeah setts kit is fairly predictable and also easy to learn, I never played him, but hell his kit is easy to understand. Tbh it's one of the best designs Riot got out recently, because he has a clear weakness. Immobility. I don't think hes OP or broken, but his W is basically an ult on a 5second(estimated) cooldown.

: So why did he lost? And how this match up influenced his other teammates that also lost? And do u even realize that your personal MMR is decided by win/lose ration? So that means it determines nothing, because this is 5v5 not 1v1..
Gonna be honest, I read through this 3 times and I don't understand what you say. I don't say I disagree, I just cannot figure out what you want to say.
: "A good player might be silver II but play like diamond III" - isn't being Silver means playing like Silver unless someone smurfing or boosting? How such a big difference between hidden mmr and visible rank is possible?
Yeah I'm basically talking bout boosting here, to show a very extreme case.
: Too many mistakes makes them non mistakes. Its normality here. MM is broken and nobody is doing anything about it.
First of all. Early season is known for bad matchmaking so what you experience is true. Second let me explain how you get matched. You DON'T get matched based on your rank, you DO get matched based on your mmr. A good player might be silver II but play like diamond III, therefor he will get matched vs other players that have a diamond mmr. For your special case it might be that the plat player had a lets say silver I mmr and you have a silver II mmr, so eventhough he is plat by rank he is in your skillrange. Now depending on your rank-mmr difference you get more or less points. Eg your mmr is diamond and you're ranked in silver you will get tons of LP for every win and loose very little LP every time you loose. The closer your mmr gets to your rank the closer the win lp are to the loss lp. It will get better as the season continues.

You cannot carry every game, just make sure to carry the ones you can. There will always be games where it is literally someone else loosing the game for you and you can't do anything about it. Don't play the blamegame, but in some matches there's simply nothing you can do and it actually sometimes is the jungle/bot/mid/top diff. That happens, not every loss is because you didn't play very good, just like sometimes you win while having a bad game.
