Eambo (EUW)
: Flex Queue Fix and (Re)Placements Information
I was Gold in Season 2 (when you could be Unranked, below Bronze), high Diamond in 3, 4 and 5 and Platinum in Season 6 (placed Plat 1 after placements then decayed and didn't bother climbing back up to Diamond). So far in every single season, after the soft reset I played my placement matches and got placed in Platinum 1-2. I've gone 9-1, 8-2 and 6-4 in the 3 seasons after a Diamond ranking, all placed me in Platinum 1-2. This time, I went 6-4 (2 intentional feeders, 1 dc, 1 intentional feeder on the enemy team #qualitygames) I got placed into SILVER 2. In order to climb back to the usual rating, I would need to play (on average) ~4 games to get 100 LP if I have high LP gains ~3 games to get promoted to a higher division OR ~5 games to get promoted to a higher tier. Silver 2 is 2 division and 9 tier promotions away from Platinum 1 (where I would normally place). **ASSUMING I WIN ABOUT 75% OF MY GAMES ON THE WAY THERE**, I would need to play, based on the averages above: I would need to play **81** games. With 75% winrate. Where (based on the 10 placement games) **40%** of the games are decided by whether you have someone feeding on your team or not. Just to place where I usually place. Then would begin the arduous climb of self-improvement to a higher tier. Is this REALLY a soft reset? Because I think something got mixed up. And no, I cannot just "climb easily because they are much worse players at my ranking". I play against diamonds and silvers in every match and they are mostly decided by "on whose team did Matchmaking decide to put more former diamonds".
: This is why 90% of the guys in this post who played from seasons 1 or so agree with this post? lol
Loving it when statistics are pulled out of... ahem, rectal areas. How many people who play since season 1 did not even bother to respond to this thread? How many don't even visit forums/play anymore? How are their opinions any more significant? What does this prove? I think nothing, despite you implying the opposite.

: I'm sorry but WHAT THE F*CK ?
I chose a random paintbrush and threw my digital drawing pen into the tumble dryer then ran a programme. The results were better than this splash art.
: "Tencent has NO influence in Riot at all!" - Mm. Yeah. Totally.
A disturbing amount of these "new" splashes are woefully inferior... New Irelia base, all of Amumu and Annie, Crimson Elite Riven, Commando Garen, GENTLEMAN CHO RUINED, Janna and Evelynn are disastrous, Karma is a little girl, not a wised woman now, MF changes are super weird, Sinful Succulence Morg splash needlessly ruined too, and these are just the worst offenders. Way too many of them, way too many. I'm disappointed. So very disappointed. {{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}}

{{champion:50}} Becase {{champion:223}} I really like {{champion:36}} Never dying. And also the baits that follow from that.
: [GAMEPLAY BUG] Dragon doesnt proc Thornmail
It was changed to a spell because certain champions (for example{{champion:114}} {{champion:24}} ) were able to solo it on like lvl 3 without much effort at all due to Dragon's attack speed being rather slow and them dodging a bunch of autos.
Serika Zero (EUNE)
: This goes two ways however. Playing a popular meta champion doesn't mean this said champion is the strongest. It simply means that the majority of players figured out why he or she is strong. Knowing the reason why, opens up the ability to counterplay it. While, if you play something off-meta. That is also strong. Your enemy will most likely not know why your hero is strong. So, they will be unable to deal with you. Examples for this: Last season Keane from NA LCS introduced Urgot mid. With a pick rate of under 1%, and an off-meta pick. Everyone considered him the butt of all jokes. What happened was in the following weeks, Urgot became pick or ban in NA LCS. Another example: In a meta primaly dominated by CC bots (Thresh, Blitz, Leona). The support for Cloud9 in NA LCS picked Morgana as support. She then became ban or pick in season 4 as support. Everyone started playing her. Even though.... from season 2 to the end of season 3 she received a single change (so, she was just as strong as a support for the past 3 years), which just changed her burst/poke combo from WQ to QW and lowered her ability as a support by not removing MR from her targets (again, this happened before the Morgana support in s4). Another example: Season 5, Fnatic support introduces Trundle support. Considered a troll pick until this day, in the following weeks Trundle becomes a ban or pick in the support role. Another example: Kennen ADC. With no buffs or changes to him or his itemization, during worlds s5, Fnatic begins to use Kennen as their preferred ADC pick. Managing to defeat many world class opponents. Many players tried to replicate this in soloq, but failing usually. Another example: Tahm, during wolrds Flash Wolves use Tahm to stop the enemy's pick composition from happening. And being able to fully protect the squishy Jinx allowing her to do mass amount of damage. Then Tahm started to feature as a ban or pick for the rest of the tournament. Jinx-Tahm combo was able to win many games by themselves. Another example: Last Week in NA LCS. Energy used Zillean Mid vs TSM (who's mid laner is hyper as the best one in NA). He was one of the main reason TSM got stomped. Using something that is "of-meta" doesn't mean this champion is weak (or weaker) than the enemy's champion. It simply means that the majority of the players either forgot why this champion is strong or they don't understand him/her/it. And as for examples above, Season 5 Fnatic support was weaker than most other support players. Yet he shaped the meta twice. Once with Shen and once with Trundle, both in s5. Proving that even if the enemy is a better player, you can still play off-meta (not popular champions) and win. And as mentioned above, if you play something that's not so popular. Often the enemy doesn't know how to deal with you. Personally I main mid and I got no clue how to deal with a mid Brand or Swain. Its not like I play that much meta (except Ahri and Lulu) to begin with anyway. Conclusion: just because its meta, it doesn't mean its stronger than other picks :)

: Last Season silver IV, won 8/10 promo's and now Bronze 2
Was dia 3 at the end of last season, went 6/4 and got placed into Platinum 1 (the highest rank placements can get you). You need to have good MMR before you begin these placements too, not just win them all. It is a "soft" reset that everyone gets, meaning MMR is scaled back but not set to a hard value.

: Gold V, 900 hour game time and still no penta
0 pentas so far, despite being diamond and playing since S2 (was Gold/Silver there but eh, old times...). A single unofficial with pre-rework skarner, triple and double after each other ( that was before penta timers were as super long as these days) Don't care much, I've assisted in plenty. It's a lot of luck and mostly depends whether you main adc or not. I don't.

Im pretty sure that at least 80% of thouse people can do better, if keep away from cunning. (Anyone of you check the math when DFT is better than TLD , its like ~75, ~250, ~400 AP early, mid, late game respectively). And Im talking about single spell cast here, not commenting the struggle to hit 3 spells and the fact that TLD has cooldown.
Or you can just toss a Make it Rain {{champion:21}} in the enemy's general directions and before you can blink it already ticked 3 times, instantly thunderlording you from very far away. Or {{champion:74}} , whose rockets count individually so one volley immediately procs it. Or {{champion:42}} with his gatling.... need I go on? On some champions, it is super bullsh'.
: How do I lane vs Tahm?
My preference for him is {{champion:85}} but really, ranged toplaners are a super massive cock-block for him. Tahm shines against melee assassins and bruisers, but you have the choice to either bully him as ranged like above or out-tank with {{champion:36}} or {{champion:31}} or such. You can also go for hyper-sustain like {{champion:266}} but that is riskier.

Here's a link to a permaban year (code) list: http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=3047538 As far as this post says, it's for "Account security compromised"
: Nocturne my build and suggest please?
{{item:1415}} {{item:3153}} , then some defense: {{item:3143}} , {{item:3065}} or {{item:3102}} for maximum lulz, then finish with {{item:3748}} Boots of your choice, I generally suggest {{item:3111}} That's what I generally do in Diamond as Nocturne jungle. Your build is pretty close to it so I guess you're on a good track. With Sated Devourer and the dueling smite you can rip anyone to shreds late game with very few (if none) exceptions. Pretty good in other phases of the game too, it relies a lot on the Sated powerspike and** knowing when and how to engage**. That part is crucial, it makes or breaks Nocturnes.

: How to counter-pick him,...1 step:when you see him just instalock Nasus Because the more "ghouls" He spawns the more stacks you gain with your Q, so he will be forced to stop spawning his ghouls and annoying you(if he realised that). Otherwise if he keeps spamming his abilities on you, then it's better for you(yea he deals some nice dmg but your passive is always by your side ;))
> [{quoted}](name=Th3 Cr4zY K1ll3r,realm=EUW,application-id=39gqIYVI,discussion-id=qXc0YVxx,comment-id=0007,timestamp=2015-11-27T22:26:14.213+0000) > > How to counter-pick him,...1 step:when you see him just instalock Nasus > Because the more "ghouls" He spawns the more stacks you gain with your Q, so he will be forced to stop spawning his ghouls and annoying you(if he realised that). > Otherwise if he keeps spamming his abilities on you, then it's better for you(yea he deals some nice dmg but your passive is always by your side ;)) I think Cho'Gath is a better counter. Yorick is a scary duelist and can slap around (and kill) Nasus a lot before the Q stacks take over. Cho though, with the E maxing strat (always on, as opposed to Nasus Q) can get a lot of sustain from ghouls and free poke Yorick till Y is out of mana. Then Yorick falls apart and Cho eats them.
: Why is Yorick getting reworked?
Old but gold: Yorick walks into a bar. There is no counter. Seriously though, Yorick play patterns come down to: 1, In lane? Spam E. 2, Not in lane? R adc, spam everything. He's a stat check, one who is so extremely opressive in lane it's incredibly unfun to play against. Beyond that, really bland. Offers no meaningful play or counterplay beside Walk-up-to-enemy-and-put-a-brick-on-buttons because his optimal skill usage is "as soon as it is up, till you run out of mana". Similarly, counterplay is binary as well, if we can still call it "counterplay".

Eambo (EUW)
: Suggestions for champions to play?
Sounds like you love being up close and personal with your champions. I, as a jungle main can suggest the Holy Triad of My Favourites who also happen to be such: {{champion:48}} {{champion:56}} {{champion:154}} Each of their weaknesses as follows: - Trundle has the least mobility (albeit the Donger of Ice is the ability with the best feeling when you use it save for Noxian Guillotine) - Noct has the least survivability of the 3 - and spell shields are HARD! :( - Zac has the least solo killing potential Other than that, I can recommend {{champion:203}} . They are not your type of champ, heck, not mine either. But the VoiceOver. Oh my god the VO. I'm tempted to put it on an infinite loop and just listen to it all day.
: Yorick rework idea
Waaaaay too complex a kit. You have to take into account the other 9 players in the game as well, they don't all have or want to use half their mental capacity to calculate what Yorick is going to do. Also, NO NO NON ONONONONO NOOO to % hp true damage! I've had it with Riot's reworks these days! Garen, Fiora, ....! NO!
Smittles (EUW)
: QSS does remove her ult, however, when it gets to mid/late game, she can ult whoever she wishes to - any squishy she wants to destroy.
"any squishy she wants to destroy" You mean any champion she wants to destroy. I've tried running away from her with Singed, ult blazing, Rylai slowing... Nope. 67% hp true damage. Of 4k+ hp. And hundreds of resists.

: If you try Heroes of the Storm once, ...
It's enjoyable only on the low levels. On higher ranks, where people have any idea how to play, you realize most games are decided in the pick phase. Morello help you if you did not happen to pick at least 2-3 out of the latest heroes - they are always trippin imbalanced and always on the strong side.

I didn't give half a sh' about ranked this season, I enjoyed normals more. Made it to my usual diamond but did not feel like grinding games all the way back to D2/D1. Please do not put in division markers right NOW! At least warn me when I actually have the time to care!

: One for all, (Russian doll Tham Kench)
Did 5 Trundles vs 5 Ekkos yesterday, now boy that was fun. Since W buffs every Trundle we could make the entire enemy base Frozen Domain, then wall off certain parts of it with 5 Pillars of ~~Filth~~ Ice... Who needs mobility, when you got them pillars?
: The Origin of your name?
Wanted "ember" because it's cool but a lot of places required at least 8 characters. And lo.

I also expected to be part of it, but was not picked. d5 isnt high tho, and like im way more higher than that so.. idk feels weird
I've been way higher in D2 when I actually cared about ranked. This season I went up to D4, then accidentally let myself decay to D5 and figured that I'm going to get the ranked rewards anyway, might as well play normals that I enjoy a lot more.
: Im Really Disappointed. vol2. recruitement
Never been toxic, high ranked and mostly helpful. I also expected to be part of it, but was not picked. Life's so. They probably did actually only select very few.
Cosantoir (EUW)
: Coach me to gold.
Back in the day when I used to be silver, after a sudden decision I became gold It may seem hard, it may seem forced, but in the end you'll be happier with your games too! Now, here's the trick. Don't be neutral. (and of course don't be negative but Rotiorz aren't known for that, right?) Be overwhelmingly positive and elaborate! Teammate gets a kill? "Good job man, keep up the good work there!" has much more of an effect than a short (albeit still good) "gj". This, of course, requires you to type rather quickly and preferably not waste time but morale is a game decider. Without any actual gameplay improvements I went from silver to gold, only doing this. Since then I've become better but that was the first step along the way. Force yourself to be happy for anything. And just like a smile, even if you did not want to do it in the first place, it will still make you feel better, as it does to others around you.
