It helps vs a relatively immobile in lane assassin as ~~TF~~ Talon with a jungler. I would love to see the same thing with a Zed or Fizz who can be on you from further away. And without jungle pressure, because hey, who gets that in Gold?

I feel like you are just making excuses at this point, so here, watch this video and it should give you an idea of how to play safely whilst still making an impact on the lane: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NE5EcbpOpg Granted it's a different match up of TF vs Talon but the principle is the same. TF needs to control the lane to stop Talon from roaming to the side lanes whilst also staying safe from ganks.
I'm really not. His argument is the classic "Assassins can't beat mages in any circumstance". I even admit I don't play perfectly in point 1, which is obvious since I am gold not challenger. But I will check out the video.

: if he dodges, then there are 3 options: 1) You still have your main disengage spell 2) You were foolish enough to throw your cc first 3) You denied him cs, besides as soon as you pressed on your skillshot you can start issuing with your mouse a move command backwards, thus denying the enemy ability to jump on you.
1) as Ziggs my main CC and disengage is the same thing. And no, I cannot throw it perfectly yet. 2) So die to his no-ult all in? Sure 3) Hardly. Maybe 1 if I am lucky.

: wait i thought you said you play mages. are you vayne or something? cause last i checked ebery mage that doesnt outrange an assasins dash, stuns an assasin.
M3GTRDragon (EUNE)
: actually pore6 is important. an assasin who goes even or is behind cant do anything. and an assasin who is behind...well...he is just nobody, even a behind adc does more
pre-6 is un-important for this discussion since assassins rarely roam pre-6. In the same way late game is unimportant sice we are talking lane phase. And you tell that to the enemy 0/4 Fizz that ends up carrying with a 15/7 score. Hurray for low elo!
M3GTRDragon (EUNE)
: then you overextend
so how do I not overextend while still attacking him? Since I just attack him from max range and I still die = overextending. Never get any CS whatsoever?

These are the situations. > > And yes, when you are half health under turret and your midlaner pings the assassin midlane is coming for you, you back the %%%% off to you t2 turret and base. Why die? It's all about sending a message early on. If you Q him pre-6 every time he wastes his abilities or tries to cs, he will eventually be too scared to try walking up, even if he would win the all-in. I had a game very similar to this just now playing Sona vs Thresh. This is a very dangerous lane because one hook on me and I would die. But every time Thresh threw his hook and missed I immediately walked up and hit his adc. This happened 3 times after which he never threw another hook at me. He just sat back and gave us full control over the waves.
pre-6 is another beast entirely. I am currently learning to harass, which I almost can, without losing all my farm, which I can't Atm. what happens is I am oom at 6 and die to an all-in because of that, or they just back at level 4-5, get their damage item and have kill pressure, because assassins. But they only rarely roam pre-6, so that is not important here.
: If an assassin is allowed to roam from mid you have already lost. If the bot lane is pushed up to the enemy turret you can ping the minimap a thousand times and have clear vision of the assassin all the way from mid, and it won't matter. They physically can't get to safety in time. I see you play a lot of Ziggs, who has fantastic pushing and harass against melee assassins. There should be no excuse for letting them roam from mid unless you get camped by the enemy jungler.
what game are you playing? If they see me roaming they are at their tower by the time I get to their river bush. But yeah, I have waveclear. I push Zed or Fizz in. Then what? They waveclear under tower. if I stay to harass they use their dash to me and I am out a flash assuming I am not dead. I get ganked, same thing. I don't stay to harass they waveclear, then roam, bot dies. Unless I get heavy jungle assistance, what scenario is good for me here?
M3GTRDragon (EUNE)
: and why you do that instead of hitting the spells on assasin when he goes for cs?
if I give him a CD window he will all-in and kill me. at best I will have poked him slightly. So why poke him and die instead of CS-ing and die? More gold for me that way
: > [{quoted}](name=FluffyPidgeon,realm=EUW,application-id=39gqIYVI,discussion-id=hdZ3BA2z,comment-id=00000000,timestamp=2019-01-13T15:08:40.880+0000) > > how? When he is level 6 I use all my CD and half my mana pool to push the wave. I'm just watching one of your recent matches, a loss against a Zed and it confirms my suspicions. You aren't punishing the Zed when he's in lane. There are multiple times during the laning phase where Zed misses his basic combo on you and you don't punish him for it. Instead you back off and let him push you in, even though his W is on cooldown. Step up and hit him if he wastes his abilities, and if he all-ins you with his ult, just pop barrier and back off. Yes you pinged lots of times when Zed roamed bot lane, but it doesn't matter. Did you see what happened to them? Your bot lane (vayne + Zyra) were pushed under their turret at half health and got tower dived 4v2. They played it as best they could but couldn't do anything. Are you really going to blame them for that? Just as an example, go to that match (defeat Ziggs vs Zed, you were 1/2/3 by the end of it) and skip forward to 9 minutes in. Zed uses his entire combo just to push the wave, then jumps to his shadow in front of you with no ult, Q, W or E available. He has literally nothing except auto attacks. How do you respond? You throw 2 auto attacks on him. That's it. The guy literally jumps in front of you with no abilities to use and you hit him with 2 auto attacks. All your spells available and you use just 2 auto attacks.
Was Zed nerfed recently? Only times I ever survived his ult with barrier was when I was straight under tower and he presses his R out faster than his combo. So what do I do? he misses combo, fine. do I go on him, poke him for 25% with a full rotation, because I have no AP, and lose trade to minion aggro and his no CD Q, or do I unload on the wave pushing it in in 1,5 to 2 rotations, have no mana and get ganked/ all-inned by Zed when it is finally oushed in and he has W up again? These are the situations. And yes, when you are half health under turret and your midlaner pings the assassin midlane is coming for you, you back the %%%% off to you t2 turret and base. Why die?
M3GTRDragon (EUNE)
: you dont. you just have to make sure the assasin cant leave in the first place.
how? When he is level 6 I use all my CD and half my mana pool to push the wave.

: Its different for different abilities, some examples: Projectiles are always seen such as Vel Q , Lee Q, Jinx ult etc. , and as far as i know all hooks and leona Q. Abilities that are not target specific and have a casting time like Sion Q, Neeko ult and Nunu ult arent seen un bushes, same goes for Abilities that are not target specific and have a duration like the ones you mentioned (Vel ult and MF ult). So no its not a bug, its a mechanic.
seriously? Odd I never noticed before. But at least with Sion Q you see the animation as it lands and does damage to you. Doesn't seem balanced that you only know you took damage because you see it in the death recap.

: No you can spend tokens until January 19. But you acquire them until 7th
: I think it's called min-maxing: minimize real life interactions and maximize in-game loot.
you misunderstand. why go for that particular skin? between her winrate being meh, you not being one of the ones pulling it upwards unless you become a one-trick god, banned more often than not (literally) and receiving nerfs making it very hard to achieve that godlike status, it simply doesn't seem worthwhile. You realize how many adult sides you could have visited and spent happy time with in the time it took you to grind that ultimately moot skin, right?
Kurotsu (EUW)
: 7 January if im not mistaken
yeah, I saw that date, too. But do we get missions until that date or can you simply spend your tokens until then?
: I might have too much free time...
: client so unstable and unfair
Let's run it down: 1. you don't get banned for toxicity in one game, unless you are straight racist, homphobic etc. in a fowl way and/or type the magical " K Y S" thing or otherwise wish death and/or misfortune upon the other players in your game. 2. you getting punished has nothing to do with other players' toxicity and/or flame. You are not allowed to flame, be it retaliatory or not. If the other guys were truly flaming you they will also be flagged in the system and treated accordingly, meaning immediate ban if they did the things in point 1 above, or just flagged and later punished if they continue the behaviour. 3. they being premade means nothing. 1 report or 9 on you, the system only counts 1. ONE! you are either reported or not. Not reported a lot or reported a little. 4. yes, very toxic environment. Thank you for contributing! He wrote sarcastically.

The sad thing is, I think that is very much part of the answer. Even when they don't own the champion, lol. I like the idea of one for all. And maybe make the champ unbannable for a week or so in normals. Also autoban it in ranked for the same duration.

: That is very reductive. If your entire point is ''you can learn from your replays'', then i already agreed. I think you used a bit of a poor example so i won't argue much against it, i'm imagening it wasn't easy coming up with a better scenario.
of course it is reductive. I don't think this forum allows me to publish a 3027 page paper with examples. this is just one. my point is you can learn more from replays than you seem to express. Your point is you won't learn very much if you are not high elo, and if you are you need to be coached anyways. I disagree with that point. You can learn from watching what you did right and what you did wrong. And you know if you did something right if you won a game or got a kill or escaped a gank etc. You know you did something wrong if you died, if you lost a game, failed to get a baron etc. Then you see what's up and notice on the baron thing that hey, the enemy jungler was 2 levels up on me and hence had a better smite. Maybe do something different next time. What might that be? Don't get behind. How not to? Don't die. Don't get invaded. Go to lanes to get exp from minions. Farm better. Invade, so the enemy jungler falls behind. Then you can further go into specifics on that front. Try shit. Oh, my invade failed? why? My champion vs theirs? Why was the enemy jungler waiting in that bush right there? Og, he just ganked midlane, I did not notice that in the heat of the moment. But I can see it on the replay. I should notice that next time. I argue there is a lot of value in improving from your own perspective tasking your own skills into account and improving from there instead of solely following guides from better players with better mechanics etc than you.
Gebba (EUW)
: Everything you said can be- and is covered in a video though. You don't need to do the research yourself when the research is already published. Conserve the time. I would also bet many people in low elo watching their own replays would not have that thought process about the ward & ganking. As i said though, the higher elo you are the more value you'll get out of it up to a certain point. You say definetely learn a lot from players better than you, but that's exactly what watching guides is, and that's exactly what my point was. Conserve the time, learn from people who already did the research rather than doing it yourself. I'm not saying you literally can't learn from watching replays, but i do stand by my first comment as well as it not being practical.
okay. You watch a guide. you do exactly what it tells you to do. It does not work. you try again. you fail again. try. fail. try. fail. try. fail. You watch your replay. You notice you were too impatient or too obvious in what you were trying to do and that your enemy never got caught because of it. You just watched your own replay to improve.

: “Is iT mEtA?”
Why shouldn't players be allowed to have fun in this game? Jeez. Hate those people that are like "you didn't exactly copy the best guy or what I saw some guy do some months ago. You are trolling!!" On the other end I literally had my jungler call me out for not building Duskblade on Quinn at a time when it had been nerfed and no one considered mains by op.gg in master+ built it. So maybe the top 1% of players in this game are in the best position to figure out what the best thing is, but when you are not in that bracket you don't know shit. Not to mention stuff like bush plays with invisible Sion Q or hextech flash Alistar into WQ which good players anticipate and play around but sucklords like us don't give a second thought. So by your logic no one should ever figure out and use what works and instead rely on the word of players with strategies requiring skills you don't even posses. Yeah, good idea dude.

Gebba (EUW)
: Watching your own replays is being your own teacher though. You have to have the self awareness of knowing what to look for and stay inquisitive to know what to improve. Point being, you can't know what you can't know so watching your own replays is limited, so to speak. The higher elo you are, the more value you'll get from replays because you understand more components of the game that you can identify in hindsight. Although at the very top around master-tier it mostly comes down to gifted people & natural talent where you would probably want coaching to further improve, as otherwise it's mostly just practicing your consistency (If you are not gifted).
I largely disagree. You can definitely learn a lot from players better than you simply because you see them do that thing you never thought of before, eg for me on katarina do her W before you R. Never thought of that before i saw it in some video. But you can fix your own mistakes by watching your own replays. for example you are annoyed you get ganked all the time midlane. You ward your brush, but you still die most of the time when you get ganked. You look at your replays. You notice that you ward the river bush towards topside, but then you died because you were all the way at the bottom side bush with no wards and boom, no reaction time. Then you learn, by yourself, that when you ward one side you should try to not be on the other side, where you have no vision.
: Locked camera attack move
in your menu there is a "attack champion only" key you can press. This way you will only be able to attack champions, when that key is pressed. Find it and bind it to an easy to use key for you.
Kurotsu (EUW)
: I just watched it, that was mildly amusing :D I get it, he makes the point that watching high elo streamers is the better way to go about it, which Im already doing. Thanks for your reply!
that is the basic point, yes, but I disagree with the fact that you should never bother watching your own replays, for one because yes, the sick Ekko outplay at 2 health is possible, but do you have the mechanics for that? If you are in low gold, like me, the answer is probably no. So recognize you can kill Poppy with your limited mana pool before she can use her full mana pool, which is her only real advantage in the clip, but since you are not G2 Trick (?) you would die to the Heca by going back in. That is when watching your own replays have some value. Among other reasons.
Kurotsu (EUW)
: How good is it to watch your own replays?
IF you are specific about what you use them for, as it seems you are, then yes, it is worthwhile. And I would also say you should watch good games as well. Not necessarily ones you winb, but where you eg have a good laning phase but still lose in the end, cause muh team. As long as you are specific about it. For example, look at a game where you lost lane because you got ganked. Why did you get ganked? Anyhing you should think about next time, fx lots of CC between the the enemy laner and jungle champions etc. Then notice what you did right in the games you did not get ganked. Was it a weaker comp against you? Or did you ward earlier/better? Respectful of the enemy CC etc.? This way you can improve a bit even though you do not have the game knowledge of a top 10 challenger player. On the other hand Dong Huap has made a good case against watching your own replays: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biCgNce_pOA I agree with some of his points but take a look for yourself. Hope it helps.

I agree, but I did not see me getting any souls (though that is not in itself reliable), and the tooltip says nothing of the sort.
