Hello, I was just wondering if anyone had noticed my earlier post? Thanks!
: If you leave any game, regardless of flame, you will get LeaverBuster. However you can mute the chat by typing /mute all or /mute (insertname) if its only oen person being vulgar.
Okay thank you! They should really include that in the tutorial!

: Your enemies are decided based on hidden stat MMR (don't believe what pages like op.gg and others say, they are rarely close to accurate). The game idea is, to have a MMR identical (or as close as possible) on the both sides. As a new ranked player, you start with MMR around mid silver. You are silver 1, so it is natural for you to play with enemies up to mid gold. But, player can have a platinum rank, and still have MMR around mid gold. This is why you are matched against them. There is also a question of the hour. If you play in non-typical hours (when people sleep/work) it is harder for game to find you enemies in your MMR range, so they allow higher and higher MMR players just to make a queue of acceptation length.
Hiya! So do we ignore what the MMR thing is on op.gg then yeh? Someone else responded and messaged me in the client and asked me if I know how many points I gain per win and how many I lose per loss. I told them that I am getting +30 points for a win and I lose -11 for a loss (I went from 100 LP down to 89 LP after going win-lose-lose-lose) and they said that only one loss is counted for it. They mentioned that the amount of points you get per a win and a loss is a closer resemblance of your MMR, is that right? Okay, so is it better to play during normal hours? Though I'm pretty sure I was playing normal hours before when I was getting put in those games haha.

: Will you receive the orianna skin, when you finished the season at Silver1 in Promotion Series? No, bcs thats below gold. Will your preaseason rating have any influence on the new season rating? Yes, since it's a soft reset, your rating that you hold before the reset will influence, where you end up after the reset (basically your new rating will be k*(R-1200) + 1200 with k<1, probably k~0.5, basically your rank gets cut in half, instead of reset to the generell new account starting point, that would be a hard reset, which wasnt done since s3(?)). SO the games you play in preseason will affect your mmr before the reset, meaning you can to a certain extent influence your reset point. And wrt ironIV, even with no games played, you would need to go something like 0-10 in placements to be placed in iron IV. But its likely that you will start lower after the reset, simply because of the nature of a reset and the tier insertion, so you might start your climb in silver III or something when going 5-5, but that's hard to estimate (take this with a reasonable grain of doubt).
Oh no that's the thing, I didn't have a rank in the season because I wasn't level 30 when it finished, I only managed to finish getting level 30 the other day but it was just after the 12th November, so I was wondering if there was any room for manoeuvre for new people to have an opportunity to get the skin albeit we started towards the end of when the season was finishing. Does that make sense? My rank just now is from "pre-season" games ^^

: It sucks that I need to mute the chat because of all the flame when learning a new champion
Sometimes that's true, but I've also experienced times where people have taken 10-15 minutes out of their day at the end of a game to talk with me and explain things I never knew before. There's good along with the bad; I try to focus on the good!

Hello! I have a question about the Orianna Skin and another about how the rank thing works. I started league a few weeks ago and it took me quite a while to reach level 30 on my account so I wasn't allowed to play ranked games until then because it was locked whenever I tried to click on it. I hit level 30 a couple of days ago and I've been putting my best foot forward with everything I've learned and been practising with the help and guidance from a few other players who've been kind enough to reach out and show me the ropes as well as some tips and tricks on my journey so far. I done my "provisional" games and I was awarded Silver 1 so that was quite nice. I've been trying with lots of effort to win my games and now I'm in a series to be promoted (if I understand correctly, if I win most of my games in my series, I'll move up to the next division which I think will be Gold). What I was wondering, is there any way possible that there might be an extension or allowance for new players to also receive the Orianna skin if we're only a couple of days out of the deadline but we manage to reach the requirements? Orianna is the champion I've been practising on most and I already have two skins (Dark Star Orianna and the Christmas one) but I really like the look of the "Victorious Orianna" skin but some people have said to me that I need to get lucky by finding it in chests or orbs I open to get the skin or to ask player support to see if I would be able to receive it if I reach the requirements. So I bought a bunch of the "KDA orb" bundles, I think I bought 75 in total but no luck in getting the Orianna skin, and I don't really want to be spending much more on the gambling element so I'm trying to second suggestion which is asking if there is any possible way we can receive it if we manage to reach the requirements in a timely fashion after we're eligible to play ranked PvP. The second thing I was wondering is do I lose my rank and do I become the lowest rank in January? Someone said to me that I will be "Iron 4" because I didn't have a rank before the season finished and the pre-season rank doesn't get included in your actual rank, so I'm a little confused with how that all works but if someone could explain it to me that would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time and consideration!

ah ok so it's a combination of the games are still ranked and still count towards your hidden score, but in essence it is actually just a bit of fun until the next season starts properly? have I got that right?

: Reset happens at the start of new season, not now. Also it's a soft reset, so you won't start from the very beginning if your level is higher than 2. And this reset doesn't affect those with level below 2
Is that from January 23rd onwards? Thanks!

I see a lot of people saying that they feel this is counter productive, but I would actually say otherwise. This is a good incentive for those that have been punished to be on their best behaviour - hopefully after some time of maintaining that, they will remain that way indefinitely!

First and foremost, contact your card issuer and cancel the card if you have not already done so - that is by far the most important thing you should be doing right now. If you fail to do so, and your card details are used fraudulently, then it will be due to your misjudgement. Furthermore, don't purchase "products" unless it is from the owner or they are licensed to do so. League content is property of Riot Games, not an individual selling accounts.
: As Smerk said, However I'd like to add, that CS entirely depends on your playstyle. A "MEH-farm" hyper-mobility roamer, might win you a game faster, and with more ease, than a control mage. Since we have a super-snowbally meta, you can get away with 6-7 CS in high ELO, but you gotta pull off 2-3 good roams on bot/top + crab follow-ups (as a midlaner for example - top does TP plays on bot, and crab covers/herald + maybe some mid roaming) - you basically won the game in 6-8 minutes. Nowadays it's all about seeing the opportunities, and knowing when/how to take them.
The roaming is still something I'm not entirely sure of when it would be good to do. I'm caught between controlling mid and freezing it so I stop the enemy mid person getting minions but that means I don't get to roam much, or if I want to roam I'd lose the control over the mid and the enemy will be able to safely get their minions and gold. If the side lanes are doing well and holding their own, would it be best to stick to mid and keep pressuring the enemy mid? I have started going for the crab, only noticed that it actually gives you a boost of manna when you kill it, so when I'm nearly low but not got enough gold to buy the item I want, I will usually see if there is a crab I can kill.
: The number is quite irrelevant since in some games you can actively farm enemy jungle, it also depends largely on the matchup. For orianna specifically there's 2 routes: Summon aery & grasp of the undying. Aery is for the easy matchups where you can actively poke & get lots of harrass off. Generally there's more roaming potential here. Grasp strongly favours a RoA rush for added tankyness & utility. This is the counter vs all in champs (irelia, akali, fizz, leblanc, ...) where you'll have to settle for lane cs only.
If we are a mid laner, should we be taking jungle monsters as well? I've always left them for the jungler to get and only focused on minions which come into my lane. Oh ok so there's another starting item and runes for countering Fizz (I've been wondering this from my other post). I'll definitely try that out thank you so much!
Smerk (EUW)
: 5 is good in bronze, add 1 for every tier above it
: 14 days suspension for using "Int Sion" strat. (Controversial response from support)
I can understand why people may do it as it seems to be a part of his champion kit, but from my perspective if I had seen a Tweet indicating it was allowed, I would have imagined that it wouldn't be a valid reason for a punishment. If it is causing issues and giving mixed signals, could they not alter the champion and replace it with something a little less controversial?

: Cassio, Lissandra, Kassadin, Annie are the once who win a lot against Fizz. Cassio: her W makes it not possible to land a fizz Q or E (unless he is already in E) Lissandra: her R dodges his R, his W makes it not possible to turn E Annie: Land a W (stun) when fizz uses Q. Deathly combo comes after Ziggs and Akali are also good. Akali is overall a good pick, not sure why Ziggs beats Fizz (maybe because of his W)
Thank you! I've played a few games against a Lissandra and she seems quite interesting. I think I might buy her next when Ive got enough essence and practice with her. I'm starting to get better against Fizz in mid when I'm playing Orianna now though. Starting to actually keep the correct distance and keep track of when he uses his abilities as well as denying him minions. Eventually I think they get fed up and leave mid lane to go to the other lanes though some people tell me if the enemy does that, then it means you're doing something right in your own lane! Thanks for the recommendations ^^

: Something that helps me alot is playing with something i can't play against When you play a few games as Fizz, you will notice really fast what his weaknesses are and how you can punish him. >Because of this I think I'm getting targeted a lot (and I mean lots!) by the enemy jungle as well and my minions eventually end up freezing on the enemy side. Don't push him in 24/7 Try to setup vision and only do so, when you know you can't get punished for that. If the enemy jungler targets you, try to hold the wave on your side in the middle... that way they can't dive you easily and when Fizz starts to roam you can shove the wave into his tower. Make sure to warn your team when he leaves the lane tho. > Which is the correct item to build first? That's hard to say... cdr and mana are good stats to be able to presure him in lane but if he manages to kill you in lane, you should prio MR...otherwise he does it over and over again You don't need an early Zhonyas.... but a Stopwatch on lvl 6 can be very usefull. But as i said... play a few games as Fizz and you will see his weaknesses
Thank you! Would it be worth switching "Magical Boots" to "Stopwatch" in my runes whenever I fight against a Fizz then, yeh? So far I've been using: - aery, manna, focus, scorch - magical boots, biscuits

: I can relate to that a lot. Literally stopped playing ranked because I was honestly afraid for my surroundings, because of my anger
It's commonly researched in social psychology; surroundings in everyday life that influence our subconscious to be compelled by being the "best" and getting it "right". By accomplishing all types of goals, it normally gives people that "feel good vibe", which is actually created by chemicals in the brain. Likewise with Social Media, some people are addicted to it for similar reasons. In regards to League, sadly some people often forget along the way that it's perfectly human to make mistakes, and without them, we would never learn. :)
: Well, as a fellow orianna player it's safe to say that fizz is one of the harder champs to play against, so I'm not too sure, but I can give you some useful Orianna tips in general. Your damage comes from the ball, not you. Meaning you can always do damage at a distance; rarely ever any need to be close you your enemy or a minion wave. (Btw the combo is: Q-W-Ult-Ignite) This also means that in the early game, you have a much higher poke potential than any {{champion:105}} ever would. And remember that Fizz has 0 waveclear, whilst Orianna can just Q-W the backline of a minion wave. What I like to do personally when I'm up against champs with high burst is to take {{item:3157}} as a third item after{{item:3003}} and boots because Orianna uses quite a bit of mana. The reason I say {{item:3003}} over {{item:3285}} is because, unless you're REALLY careful about your mana expenditure, that stuff'll be gone in about three full combos. (Q-W-Ult-Ignite) Back to zhonya's, you have to make sure that you time it right so that you don't get hit by Fizz's ult, because activating {{item:3157}} too early and still getting hit by the ult is never a good time. Oh and a useful tip in general, you're gonna want to start the game with your E ability; it gives you 10 armor and Magic resist as well as the shield (it'll make quite the difference during the first few trades) Since you mentioned Magic resist Items, {{item:3102}} is always a welcome option. TL,DR; Out poke Fizz with your range. Take E first for survivability. Time your Zhonya's right. Learn the Q-W-Ult-Ignite combo. Hope this helps.
Thank you so much! Yeah, the trading is really good for me in the early levels and I am usually able to stop him getting lots of minions and have him at very low health so he just stands back near his turret while I wait to get one hit on the minions to get the gold while their minions destroy my minions. But I wasn't sure what the best tactic was for once he has his ultimate - whether or not I'm supposed to play passively until I get the correct items or if I need to keep pushing and denying him minions (but then running the risk of being caught by his spells or the enemy jungler too). Yeah I'm much better with my manna now, at first I wasn't but then I learned to use my Q and auto attacks to poke and to calm down on using my W unless I know for certain it will hit the enemy, so ever since then I've been able to practising keeping enough manna until I am going back to buy more items. So the correct item purchases would be either of those two items, then boots, and then buy the zhonas? and do we just play passively until we get the third item and once we get it we can then start playing more aggressively? One other thing I was wondering as well - I have been practising the minion freezing. Quite a lot of the time my enemy will be losing so much minions they just decide to leave the lane completely and go roaming. Sometimes they get kills other times they don't. When this happens, I'm usually still freezing the lane so it stays on my side and they miss as much minions as possible, unless I need to go to base then I will push it all the way in. Is that the correct thing to do? Sometimes people tell me that I should be roaming as much as possible, but I'm not sure what is more valuable - roaming and allowing their mid champ to get their minions and gold, or for me to keep in my lane and stop the enemy getting their minions while I save up gold for my items? Thanks!

: Do I loose my Gold border over this?
To be honest, I'm not a particular fan of judging a book by the cover without reading the story. The only thing you know, by that point, is the cover illustration. The same I suppose would apply to a post like this. It's pretty difficult to establish the context of a conversation without seeing the chat from each participant in full - and so many will leave it to their imaginations to fill in the blanks and assume the context. I've seen a number of games where people have been really negative or aggressive in the chat system. I typically ignore them and focus on my own gameplay. Set yourself some mini goals ingame, they really do help you avoid the chat feature and focus on what actually matters. Remain positive as well. I had one game yesterday when the enemy team was pushed in right to our Nexus and we were all dead at the time. The enemy team had got out Nexus down to around 25% health when 2 of us revived. We immediately went at them to fight in one last attempt to defend and eventually we won that team fight. It gave us time to defend our base and push the lanes out a bit further while we waited for one inhibitor to respawn. In the midst of this, we were able to win a few more team fights later in the game and eventually we actually outsmarted the enemy team and won the game. So morale of the story: It's never over until it's over. Don't let negative incidents or comments distract your attention or your goals.

: Oh man, this gave me more clarity. I will start a little thing linked with Riot games, to show off my passion and my skills. I was thinking about this project for a while and I think this could get me moving forward towards my goal! It will take some time, but since this post (I hope) will not be deleted Riot might notice my interest. U gave me clear points that i haven't cleared out but knew some of the aspects about the employment basics. Thank you, that really motivated me even more.
You're welcome. Some other things to note though: 1. Be sure not to include emoji's in a CV or Covering Letter - it's unprofessional to do so; 2. Proof-read everything to ensure it is grammatically correct and without spelling errors - at all costs avoid using "text talk" language (for example, typing "you" as "u"); 3. Never use the phrase "I think", always use "I am" or "I believe"; 4. Avoid using words like "desperate" when approaching a potential employer - this is a double-edged sword and is not always received in the same context you'd expect - replace it with phrases such as "I strive to..." or "I aim to..."; 5. Never speak lowly of any other job (whether it relates to the one you're applying for, or otherwise) in a Covering Letter or a CV - you can make a point clear by expressing serious interest in a selective field of work without throwing shade on another. Once again, it is really unprofessional to do and may also be construed in a different context than you'd expect.
Golmoris (EUW)
: Yes I do have expertise for Facilities discipline and if Riot would like to see my CV as I mentioned in the post I will send it personally. :)
Hi Golmoris, I read your post and thought I would share some insight into the world of recruitment which is what I do as a career. Publishing an advertisement for a vacancy commonly attracts hundreds of applications. First and foremost, it is good practice to always accompany a polished CV with a well-written Cover Letter that is tailored specifically to the role and Company you are applying for and to - it is incredibly easy for those of us who deal with thousands of these every month to distinguish a generic letter from a personalised one. Take this opportunity to stand out from the crowd, as many do not. Secondly, keep it short and sweet. The most valuable resource to a recruitment professional is time. Your CV and Cover Letter should contain important information that provides a clear and concise insight to you as a person through your "mission statement", your employment history/experience, any credentials (academic or otherwise) and your availability (such as any notice periods you may be subject to with a current employer, for example). Short listing candidates is based on a criteria of suitability. This is commonly broken down between "essential" and "desired" requirements, and candidates will be prioritised respectively in that order. If successful in being short listed, that is generally when an individual would be invited to the next stage - sometimes these are formal interviews, other times they may be a quick informal conversation over the phone to obtain further information about you. Thirdly, be prepared and understand the Company you are applying to work for. Taking on new employees is potentially very costly for an employer; so ensure that you can demonstrate you have done your research, you fully understand the role you are applying for and the Company you wish to work at. If a Company is going to invest resources into training an individual to work for them, they will be wanting to avoid the "churn rate" (those who may accept a job, but for any reason leave that role in the near future). To sum up what you have just mentioned however:- if an individual had expressed interest to work at a Company of which I was responsible for the recruitment process and in the absence of both a CV and a well-written Cover Letter, then you've provided me with nothing other than a short note of your interest to determine your suitability for that role. Will I have the time to proactively chase one potential candidate without a copy of their CV? Most probably never. That generally only happens when an individual has been head-hunted, and that is usually reserved for senior-level positions (Director, Head of X, etc). Always start with your CV and Cover Letter! Good luck! :)

: nope. that was just a typical mentally %%%%%%ed person who can't handle his ass being carried. you'll see alot of those these days, who intentionally feed for every reason possible. they are noticeably increasing in numbers nowadays. just happen to be higher concentration in low elo since banned accounts end there
Okay thanks! I just wanted to double check and make sure!
