: The system will place you about a rank or two below where you ended last season so that you climb your way back first to prove you belong there... so even if you couldn’t see your rank you’d prob end your provisionals in iron regardless and at that point same song and dance
They already proved they belong there. A couple divisions seems fine, but entire ranks is a bit silly imo just because of the amount of time required to get back up
: I think it was better that we didn't know our rank until after the placement matches
The system was pretty tilting. I lost my first one and the system said "ok Iron 4 0 LP for you". Lmfao wtf I was Bronze 2 last season which I know isn't impressive but that's pretty punishing for a single loss. Now I'm not really that bothered whether I even climb back up, maybe I'll just troll all my games because it'll be so time consuming instead? Who knows
: Are you saying that you've not met such players so far when you played supp xD I see that the adc and the jg were premades and it is no wonder they ganged up on you; in such games just troll or int to make them flame you-then rep them. Idk how long my comment will be here, but I hope you see this.
I don't play sup very often. And even less so in ranked. Yeah maybe I'll take your advice lol

: Why am i so bad
I feel you. Last season I thought I was starting to get the hang of things. I was only bronze but I could at least 50% of the time win lane on Morde. New season, new me I guess. Got placed in Iron 4 and I managed to somehow get carried up to Iron 2. Check my match history and tell me whether I deserve to climb. I seriously don't, I feed almost every game. Champs I used to consistently win against, like Garen, are giving me so many issues and half the time I just have to go against some cheese ranged pick where I can do nothing except sit at max range to get xp and hope my team can win by minimising my deaths and trying to be the least of a burden as possible despite being useless. I just can't do anything at all. I lose all my trades in lane, cant' farm and get pushed out of lane at like lvl 2. If I even try any engage at all I feed or the enemy escapes seemingly effortlessly. Honestly having more fun watching other people who know how to play the game than playing it myself cos I'm just terrible. The game just feels totally inaccessible to me.
: Sett abilities!!!
I think with W we just have to chip away at his hp before trying to all in him because the more dmg he takes the more he can shield + dish out. So if you get him quite low before all in maybe you have a better shot. I'm not sure tho. I suppose he's designed such that you can't 100-0 him safely.

There was a former gold/plat Pantheon in one of my games :) I think it's a bit of an anomaly but it's clearly an effect of pushing us all down a few ranks

: So when's the Sett hotfix coming?
Morde main here, played as and against Sett. I mostly like him because of his W which feels like a more offensive version of Morde's. The thing with Morde is, you can bait people into thinking you're low hp then just pop W and watch them melt in your passive, but for Sett you don't keep that shield for very long and (I think) is armour/health etc is a bit lower so you have a splitsecond of near invincibility, after which you're spent and if you're still out of position after that you're be in trouble.

: It's impossible to get to diamond with a 45% winrate. You can get to diamond and then down your winrate to 45%, but that's about it. And by lowering it that low, you'd most likely fall out of diamond, back to platinum.
Are you sure? Maybe these 45% winrate players have played massive amounts of games such that overall they are 45% but in the last few months as they climbed they have been playing at 55%. If you play 2k games at a 45% winrate and suddenly over the next 200 games you're at 55%, wouldn't you still be climbing while remaining at lower than 50% overall winrate?
: Legit had level 30s in my games-wrong runes, bad plays and flame everyone else. Like dude everyone is G1-2, and you are unranked. Shut up and have some common sense. Jesus. Had 10 unranked people so far-memorable every one of them. 9 apes and 1 Darius who went 6 4. So of 10 unranked only 1 actually probably belongs ing Gold(he was against Vlad so thumbs up if he reads this, gj man). The other 9 were sad af. Enemy team stomps us, we lose, everyone starts flamming and reporting each other.
I think Riot's putting people in Gold by default when they're taking their ranked placements. I remember when I was doing mine, my first two games were in Gold because we won the first game (I was carried) and lost the second (probs due to me). Felt pretty bad for them but I didn't ask for it either. Didn't flame them tho. After my loss, the system adjusted me to Bronze

: You realise {{champion:82}} is broken at the moment right?Just because you can "counter "a champ doesnt mean he doesnt perform very well. Too mutch healing in the game and a champ like morde that can abuse Conqueror is overpowered.Its actually insane that riot still didnt nerf its healing. A champ that can perform well in any situation is a champ that needs a nerf.And all the time i see a morde seems to be a hell of a game against him.
I didn't say he doesn't perform well. All I said was that I don't think he's broken because there's actually a number of champs that counter him decently. All you need to do is kite him and harass him off cs. That denies him gold, can force him to back, and widens the xp/gold gap. And just like you said, "a champ that can perform well in any situation is a champ that needs a nerf", but since there's a multitude of champs that counter him that's clearly not the case lol, so I guess we're in agreement :P Morde's not broken :D

: League of broken morde.
As someone who plays Morde in ranked, albeit at low-elo, whenever my champ isn't banned or picked first, I'm likely to go up against a Quinn, Teemo, Vayne, Veigar or Ryze, Camille. You know, champs with ranged(ish) damage and cc who can punish you the second you walk up to cs. Try playing any of those champs and tell me which one is "broken" in the new context, lol. Yes, you can win lane vs them as Morde, but you're waiting for them to make mistakes instead of actually engaging properly (unless it's like a flash-e R) EDIT: Because some people on the boards appear to be extremely literally minded, I feel the need to point out that I'm being sarcastic when I'm calling Vayne, Ryze, Camille etc "broken". I'm simply responding to OP who says that Morde is broken. None of these champions described in either post are broken, they are just good, or decent, counters.
: Wtf is wrong with minion block?
Try playing a big champ like mordekaiser, like I do. There are times where my character model is "stuck" in a small gap between minions and the pathing makes him sort of spasm side to side on the spot.

: no like there was a group of people queue sniping each other to get games lasting twice that infact 40 minutes used to be fairly normal game length
Jeez this sucks :(
: "new" people already did this and to a much more extreme extent than 40 minutes xD
I've been in long games too, but when those games aren't ending because both yours and the enemy team suck so bad you just can't it's a different type of frustration. When two players on your team are hijacking your game, intentionally letting the enemy push back and making the match unplayable for the rest of you until they feel like ending it's a much worse type of frustration.

: 1. If enemy team pops rift herald you must go there, especially as toplaner since its pretty easy for you to make a difference there. 2. Objective wise speaking if you ask me, toplane tier 1 turret is worth nothing compared to other objectives on the map, losing 2 mid turrets will make you lose control of most of your jungle and overall create alot of pressure on your team. 3. Getting help in toplane is a thing of the past it would seem, you have to hold your own and if you dont succeed just go roam and secure other objectives and what little farm you can here and there.. About the aram mid, what i usually do is farm the stuff that is nearby and go in to try and help if a good window appears but dont linger too long.. A bit of presence is usually enough to calm things down.. if not then just mute and push sidelanes as hard as you can :P
Thanks for the advice, a lot of people suggested roam more so I'm gonna do that. I'll make sure I turn up to the ARAM more to try cool things off and proceed to push where possible
: You want some advice. Here you go. 1. Don't rely on anything. You can ask for help when you need it, but don't rely on your teammates to do anything. You might do the things you want your teammates to do, but they will most likely do things their way. There are so many players and everyone looks at things from their point of view. 2. Think more simple. Think simple thing, how will I survive this lane? How can I beat that guy to a pulp? When should I ask for help? Don't think about how your teammates are gonna do things, YOU have more important things to think about! Mainly your lane opponent and your role on the team. 3. Get the job done. Nothing gets done when no one bothers. If there a job that needs to get done, but the player who is suppose to do it isn't doing it, then either you or someone else has to get it done. If you're the main tank of the team, too bad the team either has to follow you or actually have to think for once! If you're the high damage assasin, then your team needs to learn to survive while you use your damage to take out towers when the enemy is too busy trying to be killers. 4. Focus on winning. Doesn't matter if you have the most kills or deaths, those are just useless numbers that fools focus on even when they lose. Which sounds better? The guy who has 20 kills and 0 deaths but has lost all games he's been getting those scores? Or the guy with 0 kills and 20 deaths but has won every game he's been getting those scores on? Also, get a {{item:3512}} . Placing it on a smart spot will do 2 things. First it deals damage to turrets and your opponent won'r even realise it if they can't see the voidlings. Secondly it slows down minion waves when ever minions cross the path of a voidling. If your team wants Aram fights then getting that item will help you with that, as long as you manage to place it down first before the enemy team realises.
Thanks, I love the portal suggestion because it might just actually work. Next game that descends into a similar situation I'll consider buying one. What do you consider a "smart spot" btw? Like a bush? Also maybe you're right, maybe all it takes is one person to actually do stuff on a team (like leave the ARAM mid lane and go defend that tower, secure that drake while the enemy is top, etc). I'll try to be more proactive. You're totally right, if they're not doing it, there's no point getting mad at them for not doing it, I'll just do it myself.
: This won't change and if you typed in chat you will probably get banned trolls inting and bad player are a part of the game and go unpunishable moat of the time.as flaming is the biggest reason of a ban without chat logs it is almost no one gets banned
I learnt to not type back and learnt to vent my anger vocally so my whole family thinks I'm a crazy angry person who can't control his emotions. In reality screaming at my screen "omfg Vi why tf are you taking raptors when mid is getting destroyed" gets me banned less often than actually typing it.

: A lot of other countries with more lol community of Portugal, dont have their language on game, so Portugal isn't a exeption. You can change your game by chansing some files that let you play on PT-BR, but that can make you take a ban, so if you want use it by your own risk.
: maybe change pick , nasus can't fight vs champions which poke from distance that good , jayce for exemple i think could handle really good him , but not sure... . Kayle is extremly weak early game you just need to trick catch it with a hero who stunns... , if you morde best probably would be ghost on summoner spells. Another trick which can makes you win time , is to don't die to them early ... ,then if they get advantage they can punish you much more harder ,recall when low hp ... etc.. , there are champions who are tanky and can deal with nasus , even vladimir can dodge + reheal , or there is riven ... who can move a lot ,now depends and of your skill level and the way you performing with champions which can be hard to master. Easiest solution would be to ban nasus, you have the ban option in order to ban what heroes you can't handle.
Thanks for your detailed response. If I get to counterpick I'll do it, and if I see an enemy kayle I'll start taking ghost! That sounds like a great option since sometimes my enemy does escape on low hp due to my low MS. I can lane as Illaoi quite decently, do you think she's a good pick in these situations? I've wanted to try Vlad for a while but I'm stubbornly waiting for his champ shard, perhaps I'll have to give in and buy him at full price :P

: Depends on the situation, a simple yes or not answer won't do. If you flash for a kill and your lane is still even you will have to play back cause now you are easier to gang. Ofc after that kill you must push and take one plate back and use that gold you got else it's a waste, however if the enemy has tp you might not be able to get a plate so just fast push to crash the wave so they won't be able to freeze on you. And that is just one scenario. You might flash to do what you said and get ganged. Bye bye flash and probably lead. That's why its always depending on the situation and ofc knowing where the enemy jungle is Edit your runes are wrong. Look up on op.gg or proguides to get an idea of the runes Secondly in your game vs rengar your build MR boots vs a full ad team. Why did you do that?
Cheers, I keep meaning to change my Mordekaiser runes but somehow never get round to it. I'll do it now. I think in the Rengar game I was pretty much just autopilotiing because we were getting stomped, but I'll try to focus better next time.

Well I'm in B3 so I don't know shit, but first of all, I'd like to say to you "at least you're not me" lol. Secondly, if you really are winning lane in 95% games and then lose because of braindead teammates, might I suggest you try to use your lead to spread map pressure to other lanes and/or attempt to feed other laners? Finally, if you think you're losing due to bad luck and that is indeed the case, I have faith in you that you'll win your promos and start climbing again eventually :)

: Ranked behaviour
An enemy team had an inter once. He admitted to it in chat, that he was trying to lose the game to continue smurfing at low Elo, and his behaviour made it very obvious he was a highly skilled player but trying to lose (also his op.gg was telling). I reported him and nothing happened. Finally, I submit a ticket to Riot and they did finally ban him but why did they need the extra shove?

I understand that it is normal to get frustrated with team mates who don't help but nag you for ganks, but we need to always remember that even few words of abuse may get us punishments. What's worse is, if we two are playing and if I am writing something like "f*ck perma cc" and if you write "don't write the word f*ck maayon" we both will be treated as flaming people, because the automated system just looks for the words. So just chill and use this (limited messages) as an option to use chat only when it is highly needed. I know players aren't smart enough to understand smart pings (including me) and chat is needed at times, but be careful of what you write.
I just checked the reporting FAQ actually and it says "strong language not directed at another player" is not reportable. But I did exactly that in game 2 and yet this was used to restrict me. I find this pretty annoying, but I'll just have to accept that's how it is.

: Find a better guide, and maybe listen to others from time to time , maybe then you won't be stuck I'm b3? I explained clearly why red is the best choice , the give most exp. You can't be complaining you are behind when you start wrong. Yes you where invaded but if you did start from red then you could do pararel jungle pathing , Jax Is amazing 1v1 early game you did not play your cards right just judging from what you posted Edit: I did not mean to offend you with the rank calling if I did sorry I apologise. Anyhow your items are ok as I see but runes are not optimal I recommend going for conquer, even though I can't play at the moment am out of the country I think is still best on Jax ( you can use the red blades rune as well be i think it's better for laning) Look for avoiding getting banned just don't chat with anyone is pointless . I am sure you are not a bad person some ppl in games are just frustrated. Just disable the chat and focus on your game , flame them by screaming at the screen if you have to. But don't write it down ,it does not worth it. You are here to play a game not win an argument. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise
I'm just gonna report you for rank shaming and move on. From my perspective I see no more reason to listen to you than an actual guide I followed that's been reviewed. If I came here and told you that I get all my LoL advice from my teammates instead of doing out-of-game research you'd probably just rank shame me and have a go at me for that too. Sorry for not being as skilled as you, Sir. Sorry for making the wrong decisions from your perspective, oh Diamond Master. Sorry for actually taking the time to research outside of the game, Overlord.

Thanks, ok. I'll try to just play within the confines of the system. I didn't realise simply exclaiming "%%%% this champ" or something would actually be considered "flaming", since I thought flaming was something you direct at another teammate, and simply expressing anger at myself for getting caught out in a bush when I go to ward wouldn't be considered the same thing. Anyway, guess I'll just have to shut up, liberally use the mute button and liberally use the report button because I've already received flame in every single game I've played since getting the chat restriction, despite not having said anything myself.

You said I don't use the chat in a helpful way. I'm not saying "Everyone's flaming so I can flame too", I'm responding to the fact the chat is rarely used in a helpful manner, not specifically defending flaming. If the bar is so low that simply being "unhelpful" should constitute a restriction in your opinion, then that's your prerogative. Can you stop strawmanning now? kkthxbye.

: Jax start red , golems and chickens for easy level 3.. After that you take blue/scuttle and gang if you can .. I did not read your post further from that. Cause you flame while being entirely wrong.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8P25QfFWFU&t=1484s This is the guide I learned from, which recommends starting blue. I'm not going to be told how to play by random teammates even if there are multiple ways to play a champ. This is the pathing I learnt, and it's the way I'm comfortable playing with Jax. Where I start in Jungle is not a democratic vote. Thanks EDIT: Correcting my teammates and explaining my decision as to why I'm starting blue is not flaming. If you're referring to other parts of chat, sure, but telling them I'm starting blue because I find gromp and wolves easy clears, that's not flame.

: Down vote this but i refuse to gank flaming lanes
Just don't gank just because they tell you to. Honestly, letting your laners decide when they need a gank is a one-way ticket to the defeat screen. They're generally not analysing the matchup in the same way you are, your champ vs their champs, their gold and/or level advantage/disadvantage, gold/exp difference between ally/enemy laner, and location of the enemy jungler. Usually the only thought process they have is "well I just went 0/3 before minute 5 so I'll cry for a gank"
: yeah cuz I got 10 game chat restrict 2 days ago too for report calling and the only flame word I said was to evelyn " not everyone likes to succ dicc while being 17 yr old " Lol, but nvm I didnt write a single thing not even in champ select for 11 games straight , in 12th and 13th game I wrote like 2 sentences,yesterday I logged in and honor was unlocked.
