: Could someone do the maths for me?
lmao. The game is not consistent and performance isn't consistent either. You might get lucky and win 6 games in a row and be in Gold. But.. you might also win 3 in a row, lose your promos 2W/3L get into promos again after 2 wins from let's say 60Lp. Have 1 additional win, and win the next 2 and get to Gold. So in total if everything goes sortof well you need 9 Wins give or take 3 Losses to go to Gold ______________________________________________________________ To further go onto my point that maths it totally bad in calculating the random events from occuring, (Team, Luck, Performance, Enemy Team) You usually calculate these things for example on op.gg where you have 65% Winrate in **20** games which is realistic for a good player who is in Plat to reach. In **20** games 65% Winrate would be 13 Wins 7 Losses. Even tho we're talking about a very consistent Plat player who happened to play **20 games**, this is a realistic amount for said Plat player who drew the luck straw once in a while. If we take away these things and calculate you having a 55% Winrate AT ALL TIMES. You would need like 16-25 games full of **Win Loss Win Loss Win** depending on what formula you use to reach Gold which is unrealistic except if you are extremly unlucky _________________________________________________________________________________ (The numbers are LP) It would look like this: **60% Winrate:** **Total needed: 16 Games** 60 40 60 40 60 80 60 80 60 80 100 (Promo starts) L80 W100 L80 W100 WGold **55% Winrate:** **Total needed: 23 Games** 60 40 60 40 60 40 60 40 60 80 60 80 60 80 60 80 60 80 100 (Promo starts) L80 W100 L80 W100 (Let's say you win the last one) WGold
: The whole point of the system is to make combacks more lucrative. It's a great system, it works - I love it.
That's right. It works for the WORSE Team to comeback for absolutely no reason. Overall tho, even tho I don't like it, I think it's better to not make games so snowbally. And to make games more healthy I guess overall.
Rioter Comments
: I agree jungle is a really good role in-game but it also has a really great responsibility,if you screw up you may also lose the entire game especially in low elo such as silver III and lower As for the LP loss Riot should do something more drastic In silver IV i had an average win of 19 LP, 5 LP less than i used to win And when you lose ranked games you lose on average 19 LP Which means when you win 1 game and then move on to the next one you lose every LP you got from the previous win and that is totally unfair
LP win and lose is just fine, it depends on how much you won recently. You can even get 26LP+ per win if you're good But yeah it can be boring when you have to get out of the drain -20LP per loss is a big one for example but you can get out of it. If you play Consistently you shouldn't be there in the first place
: Ranked Games Are Unfair To those who are Trying
I agree buddy. It's really hard for people who try their best in this game. I'm Platinum now but it came with a long way. The best thing to do is to keep calm and accept that not every team is perfect and you're gonna get shit teams too, but you're also gonna get good teams :) Don't tilt along the way and keep going, don't take your Ranked elo too seriously. But also don't play too much. 5 games a day is the perfect amount. Imagine you're in a Casino. You win some big money, you don't wanna play more or you're gonna lose it again. And also: Don't focus on the things outside your controll. I learned to totally block out what teams I'm getting, I addapt to every team as far as I can. What Teams you're getting, you can't controll that. That's the reality But what you can do: Play your own game :D And win the game for those shitf0ckers And with time, however you're gonna deal with these things: You will get higher rank

: Karthus High Elo Viable?
High elo anything is viable. High elo is Plat and Diamond and you can get there with any champ that you're good with. It's not about champs, it's how you play the game with them. Even in Challenger, if you use Kassadin or Karthus to a good level you can win games there with him (see Voyboy) Karthus is a nieshe pick with alot of damage, I really recommend spamming him

Acknowledging that no team is perfect and that the game is not completely balanced I have fun playing the game :) The toxidity and constant salt ingame makes it a little less fun, but I try to ignore it and it goes good :D If the enemy is salty I'm all up for it, better win condition for us

: I have better guide!!! :D Read through patch notes, see what Rito %%%%edd up, pick the most buffed/broken champ and own the game!!! Bcs now it doesnt matter if you have skill; all you need is PATCH NOTES!!! XD
It's a hassle to read through patch notes really, next 2 weeks they change the broken champ and you can't keep up. But if you wanna read long and think alot and memorize you can go ahead. I don't think simply reading the patchnotes and knowing what's broken right now will do too much, otherwise I would be Challenger by now. It's about knowing how to addapt to situation ingame that matters more than what's broken or not

: Share positive stories about soloq and LoL in general
Well how should I start..... I used to be just a Silver player and had nothing else. I used to give up, I used to underestimate all my opponents and I didn't believe in any team I had. But then I watched a positive german streamer who has been winning even tho his team gave up, alot. He also had guides and he had a good mentality towards the game overall. He explained the raw truth about anything, and I did respect that alot. So I addapted that mentality, and I addapted to every team that I played. Good, Average or Bad. I didn't talk back to wannabe monkeys, I tried to keep my team at a positive level and I started to respect my opponents and ignored the salty ones. Soon after I saw an increase in my team play and getting to Gold was no problem. The abbility to be able to work with any team and not tilt when you lose, accept wins and losses and **not give up** brought me to Platinum quick.

: Rant about the state of the game(mostly ranked)
> The quantity of your games matter more than the quality of your games That's not true and was never true. MMR doesn't work like that. The Quality of your games matter more than the quantity. When you are CONSISTENT with your games, then you climb more. No matter if you played less than usual. And even if you have someone that plays more, let's say 2k games, he can't top someone that gave his best in all of his games but only played like 500 games but climbed more than the guy playing more. Quantity doesn't matter, it does give you a little edge since you have more Input (could be negative input) but Quality is what matters in the end and that's the thing that makes you climb.
: Why is MMR a thing?
You might go back to Gold 5 in the League system, but your true rank (your MMR) is actually Gold 1. You do get benefits from having a higher MMR than your current rank. You get more LP and climb faster for one. That does mean that you do climb faster than someone that is actually Gold 4 when you win.

: I am convinced my MMR is cursed (not salty, legitimate question)
Noone playing League of Legends gets perfect teams EVERY game, I get the 4v5's, I get the tilters, I get people that want to surrender, I get the feeders going 0/7 at minute 6. But I still got to Plat despite that. I do try to work with every "average" Team that I get. I don't tilt is the difference, I never give up. I come back with a winstreak after losing streak. I try to enjoy this game for his unbalances and try to addapt to every situation. *** Now to how MMR works and why you're gaining more LP with a new account: Since you have played 2k games, you "stretched out" the game sample size to how much you need to be winning more/playing games in order for MMR to go anywhere. Someone with 1500 Wins and 1488 Loses is gonna need significantly more of a Win/Lose difference (1800 W/1600L) than someone with only 120 Wins 50 Loses. But not only Win/Lose difference matters, it mainly matters the frequency of how much you won recently (With streaks mainly) that can fix your mmr. **MMR Reset at the start of the Season** and **New accounts** gain more MMR since they have a smaller sample size of games. That doesn't mean that you can't have 26+ Lp per game with your main, I had. With 370W 360L. But it requires you to have good winning streak recently. And alot of patience. It's simpler with new account, but you can just aswell do it on your main. Or you just wait for Season 9 LOL And yeah you're getting lady lucky smiling, which is a good thing :) Luck is needed in this game. Keep pushing. Bad team, Average team or Good team, gotta work with everyone

: > being a semi 2-D topdown game you would think it would not put so much damn strain on your pc. Its fully 3D it just uses an isometric camera angle and distance to allow them to use lower poly models and textures A lot of the recent performance issues are as a result of the updated anti-cheat software, have you checked https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bug-report/GX3Zhxwe-game-client-anti-cheat-known-issues-and-fixes to see if your CPU is one of the ones that needs a BIOS update or if you have any of the known incompatible software packages installed I've not personally had any of those performance issues you listed but that doesn't mean they don't exist for some users
can you, please. Stop telling people to update their already updated BIOS and deinstall programs not even installed to try and "fix" these outrageous performance decline issues on Riot's part. It's true that deinstalling discord and League of Legends really does the trick for these performance issues, thank you. Oh yeah right, I should deactivate my completely working fine Antivirus that has better performance on my pc than the client + the game together. Ok. It would be a different story if League of Legends was a game with good graphics for primarily high end pcs. But that's not how it started :D You're basicly telling high elo players who started to play this game on a medium PC and it worked out for them to suddently: Yep, Client lags for you now and also the Game itself lags too, deinstall League have a good time!

: {{sticker:sg-ahri-3}} Frustration / Tilted {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}} Chill / Dedication
: Which champions do you consider only "newbies" play? And which ones do you think "pros" play?
pros like Platinum and Diamonds also play easy champs that are meta. Sometimes a hard champion offers you more, and sometimes an easy one does that. For newbies I don't think it's really clear for them what's the best strategie, so they'll still pick things like {{champion:238}} {{champion:55}} {{champion:157}} {{champion:64}} which is good for their elo, but way too hard champs. Pros in low elo will pick things like {{champion:105}} {{champion:45}} {{champion:4}} {{champion:29}} {{champion:90}} {{champion:122}} {{champion:16}} and in high elo {{champion:245}} {{champion:163}} {{champion:145}} {{champion:16}} {{champion:69}} {{champion:91}} {{champion:39}} There's very little difference you see. But there's a slight increase for the harder champions you can play in high elo abit better. But even something like {{champion:90}} will still be strong
: People need to start chilling a little bit in this game.
Keep being calm :) The people that get so easilly tilted by everything won't get anywhere. Just keep going and have fun in the ups and downs :) That's how you reach great heights
Tovabi (EUW)
: The problem is that when you or anyone else is trying to hard to win a game and one person is preventing you from reaching your goal, people get angry, I've done it myself I'm no exception. It's just like real life; if you're trying your hardest for a job promotion then someone else gets given it due to being a relative of the boss, you're gonna be pissed off. I admit it doesn't excuse some of the full on personal hate speech but the frustration is just exactly that, frustration, and people sometimes need to vent their frustrations. Unfortunately until the situation arises that one person's failure DOESN'T drag the entire team down to a loss, you will always get people flaming and venting their frustrations. I mean let's be honest how many times have you had a 0/10 mid lane and lost the game due to it? Did it annoy you? It sure annoys me when I'm trying my best to win that last ranked game of a promotion, how about you? I know you said it was a normal game but the principle is still essentially the same - if people care and someone ruins it, people get angry. And unfortunately this is where League seems to fall down; is that the minority can indeed ruin it for the majority, whether it be someone intentionally feeding, flaming or trolling by buying 6 tears, that one person ruins the game for the entire team Please don't take any of this personally, this is meant to be a generalised comment, I don't mean you personally
frustration leads nowhere, I win more games not being that frustrated about some games that I lose. Even in Life, I did experience alot of frustration. But it just leads nowhere. Just don't give up and keep trying :)
Ceberuz (EUW)
: Season 9 changes?
Matchmaking is worse and good as it can be, except we should have LONGER que times for better Matchmaking The next advancements you could do is always put new players into Bronze 5. And the next one is Artificial Intelligence more precisely matching you based on your skill. *** For matching a human, in mind for treating every human the same: You lose lp+mmr when you lose, You win lp+mmr when you win Current Matchmaking measures how much you win. Not *directly* your Skill. BUT: Your Skill is also measured in the abbility to Win games, no matter how you got there. So that's your skill in league... not neccessarily how you play during a game: But how you actually win.
: Visually stunning champ no one cares about
I think noone knows how to play him or pick him up, I don't. It's more of a onetrick champ or someone that really knows how to play him, maybe it's better this way.
Kalvix (EUW)
: I wish this would help =( but even though I try as a jungler the second somebody is ganked you always get "f'ing jungler you suck report you this why we lose", that person then proceeds to die non stop never warding the bush never staying back and always blaming you for not ganking the person now 4 levels above you because they got so fed... Then theres people who steal your farm and complain if you try to claim it... You can be as calm as you want and yes it definitely helps to not add to it, but there's always somebody ready to blame others instead of learn from their mistakes, as if they only ever play a perfect game and they are just in silver on their way to plat in a couple of weeks.
Oh that's something different. There's always someone blaming someone and talking bullcrap like he knows the game but he doesn't. Not typing back to monkeys made the monkeys play better actually because they're not getting a response. Don't feed them what they want from you : to make you look like a fool. Be above them and press /mute all or just type a "chill out" in the chat Once they get ignored, get carried and you win the game for them, they have nothing else to say to you anymore :D
: In low elo an "ok" is not enough... {{sticker:sg-miss-fortune}} I try to tell to my team (and enemy team too) that we are not experts at this game and we have a lot to learn, but is "**OK**" if someone die because he/she thinks that the damage was enough to kill the opponent or just win a trade. Meanwhile the one who lose the trade and read my "OK" in the chat: "Its ok that I lose my lane? _(...a keyboard warrior awakens...)_ HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"https://78.media.tumblr.com/cc10a751969d7233af5762afcb975c9e/tumblr_of7hzdEurK1rqe0rbo1_500.gif
It doesn't matter if it's high elo or low elo, mistakes happen everywhere. Low elo players can't get over it so easilly, they tilt so easilly. After 1 mistake even toxic Plat players they become keyboard warriors they flame their team and don't focus. Focus is important, no matter if you made a mistake or not, just move on with an "ok I made a mistake there" and keep going :)
: It feels like those people who tell their depressed friend "Hey, stop being depressed, just be happy!" The problem is: How do I achieve that? How do I stay calm, how do I not tilt after one lane goes 0/7 and doesn't stay safe? I never flame but I always get frustrated in such games because I have no control over what my teammates do. Friendly advices get an "stfu" or nothing as an answer, I rarely see people actually taking an advice or actually being **friendly**... I literally get a "f-ck you" as an answer when I write "good luck and have fun :)" at the start of the game. How do I achieve this "alright, just move on" mindset?
Ok let me form a better answer: Being depressed is a mental state that you form yourself saying: Hey! I'm not happy So do something happy that YOU enjoy and laugh about it and have fun while doing it. Sometimes also our brains can trick us into thinking we're "depressed" but it's simply a mental state. It's all about perspective and being positive. It's important to have a balance between positive and negative. negative is important too, don't forget that. And don't feel bad about if you're thinking about something negative, we all do! Life is hard, just like inters. It's important to accept the ups and downs :) and move further to become better
DutchPro (EUW)
: Used to have a strong mentality, pretty tilt-proof against toxic teams and stuff. But lately it doesnt work anymore. I stopped playing ranked for like a month now, only playing 1 game per 2 weeks to keep lp from decaying. Played urf like 60 games, but also quit since it would tilt me even harder than ranked
Just play 5 games a day and not more, more than that will just stress you out You don't have to completely quit, just play less but not too much less.
KonJoo (EUW)
: correct lvl of agression - Midlane Playstyle
Safer laners get more exp and exp is strenght, so if you roam much, make sure to do get the exp and farm. It doesn't have to be only safe laners tho, I play Talon, I get all farm and exp + I roam. But Safe laners are so disgusting to deal with because they're so passive and they get all they want by playing this way. Especially if their team is ahead. But they don't have something you have: insane damage. You're Katarina. *** Now to your question: It's not always good to play that aggressive, I play safe with Talon actually in high elo. Because they ain't gonna let me kill them and their jungler will come in an instant, I just kill them quick at lvl 6 or when I have enough wards to know where their jungler is. In low elo you have to play differently, but not that much different really. Don't towerdive, only go for secure plays. You can risk things, but don't risk too much. If your team is so far behind, don't panic. You can always defend in your base. Midlane is more about pushing waves and katarina and akali are melee champs and not so good at it, that's why mages are so freelo in doing absolutely nothing to win the game. But don't let yourself get down by them. You can carry hard, that's what they don't have. Don't suicide for kills and focus on towers. And even if you're an Assassin, don't die. You're more scary when you're alive. And you're more scary when they don't see you.

On the other hand you have some 18-20 year olds that have more Wisdom about Life than some 70 year old it's scary but not really, it's a good thing. Usually they experienced Life (alot of bad and good things in a very short amount of time) that they gained so much Wisdom that they kinda feel old about it even tho they're young in age matters

: Yeah, that's what I thought. "I'll tryhard with a broken champ and get on a winstreak and then I'll be back to gaining a shit ton of LP again!" Nope. I saw people on the forums that said they went on a 8 game wins streak with no increase.
> I saw people on the forums that said they went on a 8 game wins streak with no increase. ok sure, might not increase imediately, depends on what your mmr says But it will increase for sure. Increasing your LP gains takes abit, but winstreaks will do it. You know.. people on the forums spread bullsh1t alot. Just take my word that winstreaks are the best ways of fixing your MMR again

I like how to seem to imply that every master wins...even in your/my team. Because i can assure you that his is (sadly) not the case :D. Not even close. Yi in just one in a long list of champs (some others are {{champion:84}} {{champion:24}} {{champion:5}} {{champion:67}} ) that people believe, for some reason, to be able to fight 1 vs 5 under any circumstances and whenever they feel like it. The result is, usually and not surprisingly, a massive feeding and a game lost.
not really, I've observed the results in my own games. Both from my own team and the enemy team. And also from myself actually playing Master Yi If you put Master Yi on a good player and give him even 3 kills, he'll end the game quick I would put Master Yi as an exception to the others you have listed Vayne could also be a threat, but takes a little longer now Master Yi on the other hand, opposing to popular belief, can snowball quite well if he gets a lead early.

: Thats how riot keeps players from not qutiting the game,is using lp system,so u ll experiance multiple loses,wins,mmr drop,mmr going up,etc..
Wins and Losses are part of the game, your mmr drops and mmr rises depends on your performance. The only thing that I agree with is that promos can keep you down longer.
: What is a "rule" you have when you play ranked?
Haha! I know the Lee sin rule sorry but it's a little funny I ban Irelia, Master yi in champ select because Master Yi doesn't have to do anything to win the game no matter what. Basicly, I ban the strong ones atm that everyone picks. Outside of that little rule, ingame I try to addapt to my team even if they're apes I have to try to work with them
: Climbing has become impossible for me.
You have to tank it a little bit, you'll first gain less lp but with more wins in a row you'll climb up again :) It's not so bad, you just have to build yourself out again good and steady. I dropped from Gold 1 to Gold 5 and made a huge mistake. But after a while I climbed up again from Gold 5 to Plat 4 now and gaining 23 LP per game again. What was only 17 lp at my lowest *** Just slow and steady. You gain 17 lp? Fine! Oh? 3 wins in a row now 18 lp? Hmm. A few losses ok. Still at 18 lp for some reason. 4 wins in a row 19 lp now yeah I'm getting there! some losses back to 18 lp now. You somehow get lucky and play against better opponents win 6 in a row now you're at 21 lp "hmm that's something I can work with"
