: The only solution to save our ranked games is for RIOT to apply together with MMR a KDA ratio for match-making.Only this way trollers will dissapear and we will have GG's.
I hate people like you that think your performance is directly reflected by your fricken K/D/A.

Reform cards are coming this month, the first feature of the new tribunal. If you don't know what they are, when you get punished, you will receive an e-mail telling you what you did wrong, and possibly ways to avoid running into the situation in future. Riot have basically admitted in every way EXCEPT actually admitting it that the current system is pretty trash, and that's why they're working desperately to try get the new tribunal system and other features rolled out. Lyte did a Q&A on Reddit that you might want to check out, if it interests you. Oh and I've been restricted like 5 times (currently not restricted, been free for a couple of weeks now) so I 100% get your frustration with being punished and not told why, hopefully that will all change soon though.

: This game is fully broken. Not my first time i catch 4 premades and i get report for be first pick or something. All 4 just are free to report me. Then encourage the enemy team to do the same. I actually never troll/fed in a ranked game and i just got restricted because i rage like "Are you fking kidding me?" on chat. Btw i always got great results for the team i played. If i got a cycle when this 11 games ends i left League of Legends until they fix this. Have a great day.
Premade reports only count as 1 person, just so you know.
: i propose a free dodge every X amount of hours/days/idc
This has been suggested a thousand times but the unfortunate reality is if you think queue dodging is bad now (ever waited over an hour to get into a game because someone dodges every time a game is about to begin? Trolls or not, it's not at all uncommon), this would make things 100x worse. The chances that you will go into champion select with 9 people and all of them have used their "free dodge of the day" or whatever is soooo minimal, less than 1%, probably nearer 0.1% (or even LESS). So every 1 in 1000 games everyone is actually obligated to play, otherwise, the other 999 if someone doesn't like your team comp or the enemy decides he doesn't wanna play etc. they can dodge with no consequence (to themselves, at least, it costs everyone time). Now suddenly it legitimately takes at least an hour to get into a game, 5+ minutes of champ select, and 10 people (yourself included) with a free dodge, only one of which has to actually use his. It's a great solution if it didn't have such huge side effects. You have to consider what this does on a large scale, and sadly it's not a solution that would work. Sure, you can avoid a troll once a day (and let him get away with his behaviour instead of reporting him at the end) but at the cost of the longest queue times and most frustrating experience ever trying to start a game.
: you also deserve to be reported for what you just said to me , calling me an extremely stupid is an act of verbale harassement . but at least when i'm feeding ( not intentionally i just like to 1 v 5 ) i'm still a good guy in real life, when you insulted me you turned into a toxic gamer.
You also seem to have trouble understanding what "intentional" means. Just because you "tried" to 1v5 them, it doesn't mean you're not intentionally feeding, in fact you are, because you KNOW your chances for failure are as close to 100% as possible and you EXPECT and PLAN to fail. Just because you don't ADMIT your plan for failure, it doesn't excuse you from being a feeder and troll. I hope you get banned, seriously hate kids like you with your pathetic attitudes. Yeah I might sound angry in this (about as angry as a spider when he tickles my arm and I have to flick him off) but you truly are toxic. I don't think you understand the effect it has when you deliberately f**k up a game for 9 other people, sure the 5 people on the other team might be happy for a free win, but they'll still hate you for ruining for what have been a FUN game. Do you understand? You suck the FUN out of this game, and there isn't very much of that left... kinda thanks to people like you. When will runts like you learn that you are not entitled to anything and the world does revolve around you, especially in a competitive game where you clearly perform like crap and still think you're God's gift. Disgraceful.
: then you might aswell just surrender cause i'll try my best to lose that game
Just quit league, your horrible bitching attitude belongs in a place like World of Warcraft where your "I'm the centre of the world, love me and treat me like a king" attitude would be more appropriate. If you are performing badly, expect nobody to praise, expect nobody to reward you, and CERTAINLY don't expect luxuries such as buffs because the fact you're such an easy target without it makes it a 99.9999999999999% chance you're just gonna feed the buff to the enemy. Nobody gives a damn about your childish tilt, if you don't earn the buff, you don't get one, deal with it. If you're really one of these kids that trolls games just because you didn't get a buff, you are a part of the cancer that's killing this game.
: No problem happy to help. Personally I think it isn't so much a buff to his early game but more a buff to the very end of the early game (when you got your shiv and will be looking for fights) as that's when people can actually chew through your shield fast enough for it to not time out but their burst isn't big enough yet to make the shield unnoticeable (and you will have your ult which instantly restores all of your flow). But hey I don't even play yasou so I probably don't know what I'm talking about :P
I agree! I've been reading through the thread and it seems that was the intention, to make his fighting capabilities stronger at the end of the early-game heading into mid. I don't think they meant to nerf him indirectly but it's a cost they're willing to test. :D
: I would still be happier if they just removed the shield and buffed the other half of his passive (probably by removing the 10% reduced crit damage) and his health and health regen to compensate. No need to overcomplicate things and his overall play pattern would remain very similar, only less frustrating to face and less gimmicky.
I like the shield though, like his windwall it exclaims how he's a squishy champion that can mitigate hugeeee amounts of damage if your own personal skill and reaction time allows for it. I guess that suits my playstyle more. :)
: -_- then it is a need to move around, I tought u just randomly move to gain the shield.
Oh no, hahaha. Sorry, I just meant moving around in lane generally will take a lot longer to get the shield up, sometimes it's absolutely necessary to make sure the shield is up and ready before going in for a minion or whatever, and in those specific cases, this is a painful nerf 'cause it takes a whole extra 4 seconds of movement (at level 1 without boots) to fully charge the shield now.
: http://www.surrenderat20.net/2015/04/red-post-collection-discussion-on-ashe.html#more Scroll down to where they talk about yasou and you will find phreak explaining the change and how it helps him.
Thank you, I've just had a look at the Reddit thread and Phreak makes a compelling argument from a mathematical perspective. I guess I will have to try him out more, right now that extra 4 seconds at level 1 to fully generate the shield is hurting my lane phase more than the 40 damage buff to the shield is helping me. But I'm not exactly an amazing Yasuo player so what do I know. x)
ChiTenshi (EUW)
: The thing is, both parts of his Passive are the OP parts. If I was working for Riot, I would just remove his Shield altogether, buff his other Passive and buff his Offensive Stats / Abilities.
I agree, maybe not remove the shield altogether but focus more on his offensive aspects. :D
: Keep running even more in circles? Idk wtf you people do, but I like to get the shield naturally, I'm not like an idiot running some circles. I just get it naturally thru farming, the shield is not 100% important in my opinion.
Well if a minion isn't ready to be last hit and you are keeping your distance from the minion wave as not to be harassed by your opponent, do you stand still? I never stop moving, might not be "circles" ("running in circles" is a figure of speech) but moving side to side, I do it on all champions, not just Yasuo (although he benefits from it since you need to charge the shield). Yeah I agree the shield isn't important, I would prefer to see some of his offensive capabilities restored but since he is still a monster in the late game it's understandable his offence can be sacrificed for defence (to balance him out better).
: Know what? It was 2 seconds on release. And it's really unlikely that RioT will ever revert that nerf cause release Yasuo was a joke. You play a champ that it's practically an hypercarry that can afford to build tankyness (people building him full AD are the great lot that actually sucks with him) and still crit anyone to the grave. He is overnerfed for exactly this reason.
Yeah I understand he's a really hard champion to balance but I don't think this was the right direction to go. I agree he was broken as balls on release and let's hope he isn't ever that powerful again. Thanks for your thoughts. :)

: i've tried jungling and my winrate with voli is like 100% so far, 3 in ranked and like 4 normals worked out really great. your awnser was really helpfull. i'll try it out and post the result here. Winrate with annie is also pretty good right now. I just didn't play jungle and mid alot since i usually say prefer adc
Glad to be of help! Volibear is great, I'm doing really well with him at the moment too. :D Annie is also a very solid pick (she doesn't have many counters or counterplay and people generally don't know what to do against her). Yeah you probably won't feel as confident as you do on adc, but with some games your confidence will grow. :)

: I need some help, solo Q issues
Adc is really dumb in this tank meta, especially at lower ELO where your team mates have absolutely zero concept of peeling and protecting their carries. Not to say that adc is bad, every team needs one of course, it's just ridiculously unforgiving for a solo queue player at the moment. I'd honestly try jungling or mid lane (practice first of course), both are effective carry roles with the potential to carry all your lanes. The problem with adc (and believe me I love playing it too) is that for the first 20 minutes of the game or so, it's purely luck based if you get a chance to do anything... by this I mean if all your team mates go 0-5 (not at all uncommon) there is literally nothing you can do to bring the game back, as a mid laner or jungler, you take initiative and don't move with the flow of the game, instead you CONTROL the flow of the game (unlike the adc which moves with it). Some mid laners to consider: {{champion:103}} {{champion:1}} {{champion:31}} {{champion:74}} {{champion:38}} {{champion:55}} {{champion:7}} {{champion:61}} {{champion:238}} Some junglers to consider: For maximum balance (op cinderhulk users, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em): {{champion:32}} {{champion:79}} {{champion:120}} {{champion:20}} {{champion:421}} {{champion:113}} {{champion:102}} {{champion:14}} {{champion:106}} {{champion:154}} More gank-heavy (warrior/magus users): {{champion:9}} {{champion:59}} {{champion:121}} {{champion:64}} {{champion:76}} {{champion:56}} {{champion:107}} {{champion:35}} {{champion:254}} {{champion:62}} {{champion:5}} At the end of it all, there's no harm in branching out and trying new things, I mean some of the cinderhulk users even work in top lane with smite/teleport. Good luck man. :)

I like how your whole post history is you just going round being a dick for no reason. Grow up kid.
: Do you clean your PC?
Two days ago (and I clean it once a month minimum) but I still don't understand why my CPU fan is super loud, any clues? I've checked for overheating and such but everything seems fine (hovers around 55-60c in game) just after a few games of League my CPU fan gets super loud and doesn't go back to being quiet until after I turn my PC off and on again. Currently thinking of just buying a new CPU fan and seeing if the actual fan is the problem, I just hate investing money in things I'm not 100% sure is a solution, as I'll probably end up having to spend more money to fix the problem if it isn't the fan. >.<

: I don't know why people have to slag off different Ranks for just a general point. Literally, some people from all Ranks will benefit from this information.
The higher the rank, the more embarrassing it is. At least at silver or below people are considered to be not very observant or lack of experience as a norm... the higher you go, the less excuse you have.
candoodle (EUW)
: I have a better suggestion just take ignite, heal, or exhaust instead. Silver players just take tp because "that's what the pros do"- well yeah but they are on a five man team and use the tp to contest dragons, and to turn fights across the map. So many times I see a top laner tp to top tower when the lane isnt even pushed 5 seconds before drake spawns if you are a silver elo top laner and you only ever use tp to get back to lane, seriously just take a combat summoner instead.
My friend "mains" top lane and takes teleport just for the sake of it... he doesn't ever use it in a practical way, either uses it to get back to lane when he could walk and the wave would be pushing back towards him, or uses it to try teleport into a fight that's either a) already over or b) he's so far away that by the time he walks from where he teleported (some random ward somewhere) that it results in a suicide. The he wonders why he gets flamed... xD
: >Stick out the game and report them at the end so that Riot gets a report of the entire champion select chat log Yeah, if that system would actually work, then I would not see things like that.
It works... whenever I do something wrong, I get restricted... and I don't talk in game at all, so I am 100% certain it is something I've said in champ select or post-game lobby... Whatever mate, you are obviously not looking for any advice or to talk about things. Don't make posts if you're doing it just to cry.

: This games community makes me want to play less and less each day...
Well, firstly, as last pick (even if fourth and fifth pick at the same time) you are supposed to fill. Riot have said many times over the years that if they had to choose one (pick order or call order) then it would be pick order simply because it is the most fair way of people getting their roles (by "random", not because your client loaded fastest or you can type quicker than everyone else). Secondly, about the flame, you can ignore it, honestly I've heard 10,000x worse things in champ select and it doesn't phase me, I don't see why you would dodge the game and make yourself wait 5-10 minutes to start a new game just because the premades were negative towards you... If they bother you that much then add them to your ignore list while waiting for the game to start, or mute them as soon as you get in game. What you have to understand is this community is full of hormonal teenagers that have only just begun to learn what maturity is, you can't have a civilised discussion about ANYTHING if you disagree, these kids have no idea how to hear out an opinion or point of view without thinking it's an attack on their ego just 'cause they think differently. The best way to communicate (in game) with these kids is pings, they have the minimum intelligence required to understand what your pings mean and (hopefully) use them back to communicate with you. My point I must stress though is don't dodge games just because kids are being d*cks to you, of course it's not right that you should wait to play and they get away with it, but you're only doing it to yourself, it's not Riot's way. Stick out the game and report them at the end so that Riot gets a report of the entire champion select chat log, game chat log, and post-game lobby chat log, that's the only way you're going to help in serving them what they deserve, by dodging games you actively LET them get away with it. Oh and if solo queue is bothering you that much (it gets to us all sometimes) then try playing some 5s with friends, or taking a break altogether (you'd be surprised how taking a long break can change things).

Managed to drop from gold 2 to gold 4 (0 LP) before finally winning a game... I think it was about 14 ranked losses altogether, now my MMR is completely screwed (I get like 10-15 per win and lose like 20-25 per loss) so you could say the tilt still hasn't ended. ;) Luckily there's always normal mode where anything can happen and it doesn't really matter. xD

Really... I know how to play Shaco very good I play him for like 1.5 years.. I asked my cousin if he wants to play cause I really need my ip to get Rengar and I want to win. He just said: Go Shaco and carry them. I know you can do it. That is just my motivation but in ranked I can't understand what I am doing wrong.. Tell me how to splitpush better I always tell my teammates to wait and group up.. push but they do things like 1v5 3 baron others teamfights etc. If you have an EUNE acc just add me and spectate me and see how I play.(if I can carry rankeds or not) Thank you again for your help.
You want to split push when your team is pushing another lane (hence the "split" part of split push), so if your team is being pushed themselves, splitting up from them may not be a good idea, generally you need to use your best judgement and the more you play split pusher champs (Rengar can be too, though his teamfighting is 10x better than Shaco) the more you will get a feel of when is a good time to do. The important thing is to tell your team DON'T FIGHT, if they get engaged on, that means they got caught and you being there (as a Shaco) wouldn't change anything, so you can rest assured that your split pushing was not the cause of that almost-ace. During this time your team is supposed to be stopping the enemy recalling, poking back and forth so that nothing is actually happening except what you are up to in another lane. If they send 1 dude after you, you can 1v1 them, or better still, your team can now 4v4. Best case scenario: your team stalls 4v5 WITHOUT FIGHTING, you take down a few towers and the inhib. Worst case scenario: your team gets engaged on, you get a tower or nothing at all. In both scenarios, you being with your team WOULD NOT help, so split pushing is actually your best course of action anyway. Enemy at baron and you're at their inhib tower? Take it, don't recall, don't group with your team RIGHT NOW if you have the chance to take something. If you die for the inhib then the inhib is basically free, if you get away then it's 100% free. Not a free inhib because they got baron? False, they were going to get baron anyway, wasting your time trying to get down there and contest it would give them a free baron. Split pushing is a way to punish teams that don't immediately act or do things quick enough. Split pushing in solo queue is extremely easy because teams don't move as a team, it takes 1-2 guys to decide what's happening, then the rest to follow, the lower ELO you go, the more split decision making you'll find. Those 3v5 baron teamfights you're talking about is exactly what I'm talking about, the thing you have to remember is as much as your own team mates are dumb and won't listen, your enemies' are just as bad. A few questions (not related to split pushing): Do you camp lanes? I'm not talking gank twice in 2 minutes, I mean gank > make him burn flash > walk around the tribrush > gank again > walk back > gank again, if you are ganking correctly then you WILL get fed and snowball the lane, it's not at all a bad idea to kill the guy, go in the brush, wait for him to come back, then kill him again, 99.9% of the time the guy will assume you recalled (since that's what EVERYONE does) it is by far the easiest and most effective strategy to win the early game (providing you know how to gank of course). Do you pick up the red trinket fairly quickly? Most of the time nowadays I am confident knowing where my enemies place wards in the laning phase so I like to play the vision game by rushing the yellow trinket upgrade then buy pinks whenever I need them, but at lower ELO I find denying vision is better than having vision (since your guesses are better than their definite knowledge), ALWAYS grab the red trinket, it will make camping lanes 10x easier. How many pink/green wards roughly per game do you buy? You probably hear it all the time but most of the games I know I've messed up or I get caught resulting in not being able to carry, it's because of a lack of vision. 3 wards from your support isn't going to cover much, you should almost always have 3 wards down, if you are leaving the base with more than 75g and an inventory space, break the habit and always pick up a ward, even if you have no idea what you want to do with it right now, grab it. Vision = wins, can't exclaim it enough. I don't have a EUNE account, I'm sorry. If you can record your games or have access to replays then I'm happy to take a look and try give you some feedback. The problem is I can talk a lot lot lot lot lot but I still don't know what areas you're struggling in. If you play the camp, split push, and vision game correctly, you will win most of your games, so I guess we should look at those areas? Is there anything you KNOW you need to improve on?

This is Shaco's dream, because you can repeatedly gank a lane and the enemy doesn't know how to handle it. For low ELO carrying (I got my smurf from bronze 4 [placements] to silver 2) I believe there are 2 win conditions as a jungler: 1) Camping 1-2 lanes so hard that the enemy either AFKs (legit strategy, especially as Shaco in low ELO) or they are so weak and underlevelled that they are practically useless to their team and/or tilted (a bad attitude always results in poor performance). 2) Split pushing For the first point I already touched on it, as Shaco you have the insane ability to camp 1 lane for a good 5-10 minutes straight. The second point is what you transition to into the mid to late game as when it starts coming down to teamfights, Shaco is extremely weak and starts to fall off (the curse of having your burst/initiation AND escape on one spell *sadface*).

: "Give it time, people will learn how to play Bard" (No, they won't.)
Problems with Bard: - Too much of everything, master of nothing - someone else mentioned it, his kit is random and none of it has any synergy. So you can do a little poke, heal your adc a bit, take a magical journey because ?!!??!, overall you're having almost 0 impact except 100+ mana health pots every 12 seconds for your adc. - Ludicrous mana costs at least early where arguably your mana matters the most, you know, before you can buy mana items if you so need. - Horrible range (both on Q and basic attacks) when you're encouraged to harass (and inevitably lose EVERY trade) - Horrible base stats and growth so even in a 1v1 basic attack fight he will lose to almost every single champion at all levels (there are some buffs on the PBE that have made it through several updates so expect to see them on Live, though it won't change much I expect) - "Troll"ish ultimate that can backfire and tilt your whole team/make them hate you when you were only trying to help (been the victim of this, it sucks, and you've got no excuse, just "well I tried...") Basically Bard's problem is they tried to give him everything and make him "fair" by having downsides/risks attached, in reality they made him useless because if you want to poke: get Annie, if you want to heal: get Soraka or Sona, or if you want someone to save your ass or initiate fights then get Thresh/Leona. There is no incentive to pick Bard because everything he's supposed to do, another support does it 120x (accurate number) better.

: Fajerk and Humpelstilzche pretty much answer this perfectly. Information about punishment is vital to understanding where you stepped wrong. It's definitely something we're working on . What you received was basically a heads up that you got a few reports. That works to change the direction of those who may be heading down a bad path. With so many people involved a few may receive them without setting foot in that direction and the balance there is that it doesn't happen often but the impact is vast. It's one of the few times we're willing to trade accuracy for speed. I checked your account and you're a solid guy, there was one game where you seemed to get a little frustrated and potentially it comes from there. To your credit you did what we always say and played the game and not the chat box. Grats on the Penta too :)
Question... as someone that's been restricted before (and currently), I got this report warning in one of my last few games and it automatically scares me into thinking I'm going to be restricted again, is this true? Because I have no idea why or how I've been reported "multiple times" for this warning to pop up. I understand my account might be flagged or I might get restricted by some automated system for re-offenders, but please tell me that you have some safety measures in place? I have a made a special effort to make 100% sure that I am 100% innocent when this restriction ends, and if I get another one because of kids spamming reports at me then I will be very upset. P.S The game where I had the popup was an URF game where I didn't even say a single thing to the enemy (my allies told me it wasn't them that reported me), you can take that as a fact because I'm chat restricted lol.

: ERM.... Gonna put this here first http://wardscore.loltools.net/?name=Lichdor&region=eune However I do agree 100% that warding is a huge part of game player and vision gives your team a tactical advantage over the enemy. When I first learned to play a role it was jungle so and then I went on to main support last season. But really what I credit most of my warding to is the LCS seeing how the vising changes the game and the benefits it can bring. PS you can check your "wardscore" at this link http://wardscore.loltools.net/
Wait, does this count the wards placed by trinkets? I generally only buy 2-3 pinks a game (first for drag, other 2 for either more drags or protecting jungle) and very few green wards as I like to rush the greater stealth totem trinket ASAP then I don't need to invest any more gold into greens... I thought my "ward score" would be a lot higher, hehe. Interesting website though, thanks!

: You have to realize that pretty much 50% + of the community is underage (or mentally underdeveloped), so there is really no reason to engage in conversation in-game, or you could risk getting your account banned. It's pretty much like in real life. Stupid people everywhere (since they are the majority, expect Riot to take their side). Just play the game and try to keep calm. If you can't, I recommend forming a ranked team with some friends and queuing up ranked 5s. The game is much more fun in a premade environment.
Thank you for your advice, a few years ago I may have found myself losing my cool (and maybe even instigating arguments) but nowadays I am totally cool. The furthest I get is disappointed, then I just feel a bit mentally tired and take a break, nothing angry comes out of it or whatever, although perhaps maybe I have expressed myself in a way that can be interpreted like that? It's worth thinking about, thank you. :)

: The thing with Caitlyn has been going on for a while now. It is a visual bug on her. You probably just got the 'feeling' that it happens with every other champ after playing Catlyn for a while, if not, then it can actually happen sometimes.
Ahh, really?! Yeah, I've been playing a fair bit of Caitlyn so I must have the "feel" for it. Thanks for letting me know! Guess I'll just wait it out and see if Riot fix it by next patch. Thanks again!

Do YOU even read what YOU write? You are complaining about BLITZCRANK, if you can't dodge hooks as an ADC (Jinx or not) and ESPECIALLY as Zed then you need to keep playing and get a decent feel of the game before complaining about crap you have no idea how to judge.

: nerf kennen...
LOL these threads just keep getting better. Why? He's balanced and healthy. Guessing from your name, you're a Riven main, so you have no right to cry about anything (not that I think Riven is OP/needs a nerf, just that's she's faceroll and gives people an false entitled sense of accomplishment/skill). EDIT: yep, you're a Riven main, good job embarrassing yourself.

: Mandrake is gonna be good only for early game, later on you want more information about enemy jungler than just that he's close. It's main reason for existance is to soften up stealth.
Wait, they detect stealth...? Sigh, back to the graveyard Eve... Jk

: Why is Jinx allowed to be strong early, mid and late game as a hyper carry?
Q: Gatlin Gun: This ramp up is NOTHING compared to Graves' ridiculous passive, also Jinx's attack speed per level is amongst the lowest out of all ADCs, I haven't got time to check the numbers right now but I am certain she is near, if not at the bottom of the list. Rocket Launcher: Costs mana every time, pushes lane, can mess up last hits if you go for harass in lane. It's not all 100% benefit, even in the late game using rockets sacrifices attack speed for range, Jinx will be attacking slower than other ADCs with the same itemization/runes/masteries. W: Delayed and easily dodgable at range (compared to most skillshot slows), really mana hungry early, does mediocre damage so it's mostly used as utility rather than damage. E: Takes your supp/team mates to setup if you want to use it aggressively (unreliable), or you use it as a zoning tool with almost half a minute cooldown. I would rather have quickdraw, or 90 caliber net, or condemn, or stand aside, or this, or that, by now you can realise how this skill isn't even that great in comparison). R: You didn't complain about this so I guess I don't need to talk about it. By design Jinx is supposed to be a high risk high reward champion, hence "the loose cannon". The fact that both parts of her Q have pros and cons, her W is delayed and keeps her rooted for half a second, her E requires setup with such a high CD, and her R is easier to dodge than Ashe's (trust me) overall makes her healthy and balanced. There are not many champions in the game that deliberately have downsides to their kits, not just "room for counterplay" but actually slightly handicap you in exchange for power in other areas. Yes, Jinx's late game is disgusting, she is a hyper carry, but not without weakness. Her early and mid are underwhelming. It is much easier to shut her down in the early and mid than it is to let her snowball out of control and 1v5 you lategame. TL;DR Numbers say she's balanced. All her skills are double edged swords. All-in her till she flashes, all-in her and get free kills for the next 5 minutes. Make sure your ADC & supp aren't slow in the head and know how to stay back without getting poked (same concept as Caitlyn). Finally, you are not an idiot, you are right to realise how strong she is and she is definitely top tier along with Graves, though I would argue that Graves is A LOT more OP, that's a guy that doesn't have any weak phase of the game, from level 1 he's ridiculous and he just scales into an assassin ADC.
: You may also contact me ingame or on skype: luke.kronhardt for further assistance on the matter.
Hi! Thank you, I will log on and add you now, may be easier to speak. :)
: NP, we all come to this point where custom hardware gets us on our knees ;) Now 70c isn't very hot, mabye the CPU was hotter but the temperature display didn't show the whole truth. If this problem occurs only during games, i suspect the graphics card fan or GPU clock settings are in a bad state. Is it getting better if you tune down the PCIE overclocking to a lower value?
I haven't tried gaming again yet, I just changed the CPU Overlocking and PCEI values from "Auto" to "Manual" (third picture in my original post) and came here to post to see if I'm along the right tracks to detect my problem (if someone said "yes it's overclocked" they might be able to instruct me how to turn it off, maybe.) By default the values after changing to "Manual" were on their lowest already. Should I try playing a custom game and wait to see if my PC starts to overheats? Thank you for your patience so far, appreciate it. EDIT: That manual is relevant but when I look at the CPU overclocking section it doesn't have much information, unless I'm blind and missing what it is I'm supposed to be seeing, haha.
: RTFM? Did you look on the manufacturer's website? Where did you buy your computer? Or did you build your own custom? Do you know exactly the values your processor / RAM needs for running smoothly? (FSB speed, Voltage, etc.)? For starters: Can you completely disable this overclocking menu by turning the sh.T off somewhere? If you build a custom computer: Did you install the correct motherboard drivers to make Windows happy? Wo shall be able to tell you the correct value if you don't give more specifics about your system? Edit: Try this: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/SocketAM3+/M5A78L-M_USB3/E8017_M5A78L-M-USB3.pdf
Sorry, I'll try to answer your questions as best as I can. I didn't get a manual, it was bought for me as a present. I don't know any exact values. No, I don't think so, that is exactly what I tried (turning it off completely) by going into the BIOs (as Google instructed me to). As far as I know all the drivers are installed correctly, at least for Windows and the GPU. Everything works fine just after awhile of gaming my fans get really loud and the computer shuts down, SpeedFan tells me my GPU and CPU are around 65-70c temperature when this happens. Sorry again, I wasn't aware this was a "you need to manually tune everything" matter, please don't be too hard on me, I tried to provide the information I thought was relevant..

: Why do People Surrender so Easily?
Most of the time I don't FF for the reasons you've stated (being slightly behind). However, if I do want to FF it's usually combination of several things: 1) We're too far behind, stop the inevitable struggle and just move on. 2) Playing a lost game with the hope that we can win is just going to ruin morale. 3) Being realistic that this game is tumours (metaphorically) when the next game could be fun and enjoyable. 4) If we get the jump on the enemy with unfair numbers (like 5[us]v3[them]) and they ace us after we use everything, that's a reality check that we've most likely lost. 5) I HATE the games that are so clearly lost and the 0.01% chance of winning comes from the enemy team messing up, which is something you should NEVER rely on, nor cling to hope on. With all that said, in ranked usually all the conditions have to met, and I feel that there is literally 0 chance of a comeback. If we're only slightly behind then I agree with you entirely, don't surrender, and there's often times where we're 4v5 and I still don't want to surrender because I believe in the coordination, strengths and advantage of my team mates. Then again I don't play in big premade groups often, much more of a solo queue player so it's a lot easier for me to be demoralised by my team mates. :P Granted I am willing to admit there is of course the occasional game (maybe 1 in 100) where I think we've lost and I want to FF but we go on to win, then I quite happily admit I was wrong and thank my team for not letting me give up (yay majority votes for surrenders).

: If you have played enough LoL, you will instinctively know when someone is scripting (not on 100% though) + if you are not a baddie yourself/have some brain. As said by Adrenalotr - *"You could infer from terrible game knowledge and strategy but excellent mechanics that a player is potentially a scripter"* Other ways: -Sporadic movement of the champ. - combos executed with inhuman reaction. - Cassiopeia shooting claws spell backwards (a human can not execute this) - Kata killing 3 + people in 0.5 sec. - dodging all spells for the entire game (almost every player fucks up at some time) = dodge script (the trajectory of spells in Kata's video) Some examples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bG2J1ockeS0 - no need of explanation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1iM_35NP44 This one with Trist - you can notice the script working in her sporadic movements while avoiding entering the Gragas`s bush (just before the flash thing). The next bit is self explanatory, although a human can execute that flash-avoid-ulti. But It's only possible when you have prior vision and still it won't be executed in the same way the script did. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UViojltEa6I Here you can see and learn how the script "works/thinks/behaves" cause its pretty obvious when the scipter is bombarded with multiple spells. The best example is Corki's movements while dodging Leona's ulti.
Hi there! Sorry for the late reply, now that I've seen the videos you've shared I can see how obvious some scripting is. These demonstrations are MUCH more obvious than the subtle-easily-missed videos I saw. I think it's most obvious when the script is faced with too many actions to handle in a short period (like within a second)? As shown by the Corki video you posted. This has been very educational, thank you for sharing. :)

: NERF THE FUCKIN RIVEN ALLREADY
I can't believe you're platinum and crying about Riven. Seems they give out ELO for free on EUNE. P.S I love how everyone's comments against these "QQ Riven is too far up my butthole" threads gets down voted. Just 'cause of a majority of people agree, doesn't make them correct. There is a very good reason why you don't see Riven in competitive play, if she was as "OP" and "broken" as you peeps like to make out, she would be insta picked and banned every game, but she isn't. Think about that...
