: I think the first tip is probably the best. Play normal draft and try to play only a selected champion pool of about 3 champions for the both roles you queue for and try to master just them. The more different champions you play the lower the chance you'll improve. Oh! Playing with friends also improves the quality of the game by a thousand-fold! {{summoner:31}}
Normal draft = tryhard mode. In most of your games, either your team or ennemies' will try as hard as they can, so it's not funny anymore. If you have any player that might mess with your game experience, just ignore him, mute if necessary, put some music and just chill :)
: Give feedback to the person above you.
@oluuko123 I can see you play a lot of Anivia and other mages mid - As a midlaner, and particulary as Anivia, I think your farm is very low, so try to improve it by learning to CS in a custom game without bots, only you & the creeps, cause I know Anivia's autos are quite crappy for last hitting. Dunno what to say about the build, it seems okay to me, but in case you are not sure, check champion.gg to see the common buildorder, runes & masteries for a specific champion/role. At last, in some previous games, you seemed to die a lot, so I guess greedy, or position. Dunno. But avoid chasing for kills when it involves putting you in danger :) Here's my match history. Don't pay attention to normal games, I'm just chillin' there or playing with friends and messing around. :) http://matchhistory.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-history/EUW1/28329496
: 1. you're playing a lot of Kalista- she isn't in a good place right now. 2. you're playing assassin type champions but you don't get yourself secure kills (your kda ratio isn't great at the moment) 3. In some of your games you don't pick according to what the team needs by the looks of it. 4. your cs could do with improving. 5. when a game goes south for you.. it seems to go REALLY badly. Majority of your losses seem to have a very high death to kill ratio. 6. You don't ward enough. Summary- Die less, stop playing Kalista (46% win rate at the moment), ward and CS more. If you want to carry you need to improve on all of the above points. Hope this helps.
I would add that you seem to die a lot in your games, so you may be comitting a lot, or be extremeley greedy. Also, try recording your games, and take some time to watch the replay, to spot your mistakes and trying to improve based on them.

: If Riot REALLY cared they would make URF permanent.
If temporary gamemodes go permanent, the ranked playerbase would be reduced, thus causing more queue time ...
: How get job in riot company???
You can maybe apply for the region you're living in (ex. if you live in Germany, be part of the german customer service ?)

You'll be banned before reaching b5 :D

: how can you tell that someone's intentionally gone afk? you cant and thats why this is never gonna happen I like the part about "marking" toxic players, how about sth like an honor crest just ugly and reserved for toxics?
You can tell it as soon as he says it himself, "afk, bye" along with "this team" "ff20" etc

: Yasuo IMHO is mained by so many people... Yet they are so bad at him... Vayne could be a choice - Ty for that Anivia looks a bit boring, but I've never tried her, so I could be wrong :3 Bard apparently according to my friends is 'fun' but honestly I don't know. Fiora looks decent too - Ty for that.
Bard, when mastered, is a monster. It can save like every situation with a well-timed and placed ult : allies, objectives, turrets. He also deals decent damage in mid-late game with his chimes only. I LOVE this champion, not only because i'm pretty decent at it, but also because he has this unique and fun gameplay, which makes me enjoy every game, as long as I play Bard. :3

: Yesterday i had a game and i want to share this with you.
The system is not that retarded ... and you really need a lot of reports on consecutives games for these to have an impact on you. Cheers :)
: Help, skins.
Orianna and kindred. :)
: I can't handle this BS about Dominion !
The map should remain in custom gamemode for hide & seek ...
: What's up with the team builder whining?
Why do people even downvote this ? Because you are so right. And even if riot brought back TB, no one would play normal draft at all because "new draft sucks" ... the new draft is great. You just gotta get used to it.
Steelist (EUNE)
: Mastery page selection problem
Hey, it happens everytime you check someone's profile via the client. I got another problem, I played an ARAM game between two rankeds and had to create a page for my randomly picked char. Back in ranked draft, I pick, check runes / masteries, all names are ok. Then in-game ... "amumu, mastery problem ?" I was using the masteries I created for the game before while in draft it displayed the correct ones ... won the game tho :D
: I love people who write "ez" after the game...
And what if they were talking to an {{champion:81}} ? :(
: School Subject about League of Legends
Hey, I wouldn't have picked LoL as an example but in LoL's case the music has at least 2 purposes : -Suit a character (loading screen's) -Immersion : during draft, the music is supposed to put our minds in competitive mode, if you get what I mean. (I mean, that's how I feel it) Maybe you should pick other examples in movies or other games because LoL isn't very relevant. (ex. cartoon Tom & Jerry's music is used to make them "talk", in older episodes)
: Flaming people who are trying to learn a new champ...really?
My thoughts : When trying a new champ, see first how do you build it (champion.gg helps a lot) : skillorder, runes/masteries, items. Then go in a custom game, add a Soraka bot, learn how to cast your spells & their range, practice tips & tricks, and more importantly, the auto-attack animation. Learn how to cs with your brand new champ. Once you've done all of this you can go in pvp and say "training X" :)
Stell (EUNE)
: About the old first pick system
Nope. However, you are shown next to each other in loading screen, which makes premade easier to figure out (compare pickorder and loading screen order) :)
Alex3995 (EUW)
: feed your own carry till the point where he has no coice but to carry the game. Basicly you need to do all the work and he will get the credit. play stuff like leona sona brand. stuff that doesnt enought damage to carry alone but still can help your team. maybe get a duo partner that mains adc or something
problem is that even if your adc is fed, if he's a real bronzie, he may throw (by going in without vision, getting caught etc)
: Can Ashe support?
She has an amazing trading ability due to her crit autos. You take some basic AD runes on her with thunderlord masteries, build targon to equinox, tear, and then ad / utility.
yobyddet (EUW)
: Let's cry together thresh mains :'(
You can proc relic shield with spells, too. And last hitting with thresh is quite easy when your wait for your E's passive to be "red". I played support Urgot with relic shield, ez last hit
Bombardox (EUW)
: People should practice in normals before jumping to ranked
just play hard cc champs. Set dem wombos with a premade or two. Real bronzies just go into the fight vision vision or without think. Just cc their best player to death and win.
Neonchan (EUW)
: You could talk before too. Still reality is that noone reacts when you try something like this. Perhaps it changes (the new mode is (as the name implies) still kinde new) but reality was always somewhere between noone reacts or you get trolled. Perhaps 1 out of 3 swap attempts really worked out
Neonchan (EUW)
: Why not? If your last pick preferes to pick a highly contested pick, why give it over for free?
You know you can swap ... and you SHOULD swap for contested picks.
Souli G (EUW)
: Are custom skins allowed?
You are not allowed to use "official" skins via custom skins programs.

You should be able to pay in pounds. I just changed the payments options to United Kingdom, and am seeing prices in £ ... Have you checked your options are for UK ?

Then instead of replacing the secondary role, add an optional button "Except". I find this idea nice, but imagine dem tag times if everyone puts "support" in this third option :').

They do if you ask them with some nice LoL related art :)

http://matchhistory.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/EUW1/2493838261/28329496?tab=builds Big power spike when I got the enchant on the jungle item ... this is so OP D:
: You want to know a secret, that isnt a secret. Bard was never nerfed since his release.
Indeed, he always got buffed ! Bard needs more love.
: Thats just personal preference. The reason why I prefer eye of the watchers, or any other upgraded sightstone is because its better. Its really is better. You save more gold, and you get more items, its the ultimate dream. I like to play Bard tanky. Most people build him as a mage support, and I dont blame them, people have different plays styles. The reason I build Tank bard is because his kit is strong enough as it is. Your meeps are insane, your the fastest support in all League of legends, your chasing capabilities are incredible, there is no reason whatsoever to buy Frost Queen´s Claim. Yes the AP and active are really nice, but Bard doesnt really need it. Think about it, you have tempered fate to start an engage so that eliminates the need of Frosts active. "but it slows people down" Dont worry, that is what Magical journey is for (Use journey to cut corners and stop people from getting away), not to mention that your meeps also slow your opponents. This is my tunnel vision Bard support build: {{item:2301}} {{item:3117}} {{item:3190}} {{item:3110}} {{item:3065}} (For my last item I have two options) {{item:3800}} {{item:3050}} I have more than enough CDR, Im tanky enough to last in a fight, and I have CC for days. People build him as a mage because of his health shrine, and I respect that, but even as a tank, his health packs are good. Plus in the mid to late game you use them as an escape or engage tool (escape for juking skill shots, engage because of the enhanced movementspeed). About the vision created with Frost Queen´s claim´s spooky ghosts... If you put good deep wards, you can predict a players pattern. I find FQC as the "Im too lazy to buy wards for vision" item.
I build him as tank too. I just prefer frostqueen, for when your wards are down / your team goes without vision. I mean, it's free vision without taking any risk. Because sometimes you can just try and ward a bush, getting cced as hell, without having any time to tunnel to escape. So I build him this way : {{item:3092}} {{item:3158}} {{item:3050}} {{item:3190}} {{item:3742}} {{item:2045}}
: Well, then you never seen a real bard. http://matchhistory.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-history/EUW1/201419950?champion=432 That 5 win ranked streak with bard are my placements btw ;)
Eye of the watchers ? Really ? Frostqueen's way better. Don't have much Bard matches recently but I got maybe 200+ games as him ...
: I understand :p It brings back memories to me as well.
I used to play Ashe only till I got 6300 IP and buy Ahri :D Ah ... good ol' days :3
: I prefer the new one actually. Have you heard that ending? So epic... (5:32) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xi1xHGQcuAU Shame you barely get to hear it ingame. But I like the old theme, too. League of Legends has amazing music overall. Braum login, Tahm Kench login, dragon trainer Tristana login, so much good music...
New one is nice too, but the old ... reminds me of the good newbie days <3

Well, it is extremely easy for Soraka to land Q&#039;s on advancing enemies that want to to close the gap to you so it will be very easy for her to spam W forever. it is a war of attrition, so to speak, which you will always win with a Soraka behind you. I think this speaks for itself. :) Good post bruh, so true
: Because they were excited and encouraged by riot games to do so "2016 ranked season is here!" N all those ads regarding season 6. Turning on ranked draft was something they shouldn't have done. it really is the worst, with its extremely toxic-based idea.

N all those ads regarding season 6. Yea but look. Once you tasted the new draft, I'm sorry, everyone says it, this is so much enjoyable compared to old draft. You can't just be like "oh they disabled this draft ? np then i'll play some rankeds in the old toxic draft and lose some of em.". You just can't ... either you assume you take this risk or you be *patient*. Personaly, I decided not to play any ranked game without the new draft. I'll wait for it, it will help me to better prepare for when it's up again. And I do other things in the meanwhile ! Just people need to learn to move on, and do something else instead of "forcing" themselves into something they know they won't appreciate.

Madeonetrue (EUNE)
: placement games is waste of time
Placement still affects your MMR. The better you'll perform, the better will be your mates & opponents' MMR. You can be B1 with a gold V MMR, you will be paired with / against player around the G5 mmr. (EDIT : with the new MMR calculations, of course)
