: Items in TFT
There's lots of rng involved with the items and while I'm far from an expert, the idea of auto chess is not to win #1, it is to "make do with what you get, and get as high as possible". That's the appeal of the game and once you switch your mindset to that instead of to hardwin #1, it's a lot less frustrating. If you have bad luck, you can be happy you got to #4. If I have an insanely bad game and I'm stuck with level 1s at round 250 with two negatron cloaks and one tear, well, I'll just be glad if I made it to #6 by trying to play around what they have, by minimizing my losses, trying to stall. If you really get incredibly unlucky games - I mean it happens - just move on from those. However, I have often won vs people with more and better items than I did, simply because I made better do with what I got. Don't blindly overfocus on a single idea of a comp just cause the game happened to give you nidalee, ww and ahri early, but adjust as necessary and build the items you receive into something that was at least sorta suitable against the strong opponents in that game. Look at what other people are building, what items do they have, and so on. A lot of items or comps can be "countered" by one thing or another - phantom dancer on a frontline can be super annoying if you have a ranger comp, but hey if you get a rapidfire on your carry instead of that guinsoo you've been all hot for, suddenly phantom dancer doesn't exist anymore. If someone is stacking yordles, maybe going full ranger is not the greatest idea and you should shift your power to your mages. And if they're running assassins, maybe it's a nice idea to add in that 4th Knight or, heck, be a rebel and build those shitty double negatrons you got earlier in their combined version on your Varus, see how much damage katarina is doing then. You get the idea. Make do with what you have, and that's where the satisfaction comes from.
: What role do you play and your main champion? It helps to include such information. Edit Ok i didn't know you was level 7 so ignore that top part. Let me introduce you to a champion called master Yi. Master Yi is a jungler champion who is great for teaching players about farming the jungle and carrying. He is really good against bad players. When you get level 10 and unlock the smite spell. Try him out in the jungle.
Quite possible the most accurate, dead-on reply in this forum I've seen in awhile. I laughed.

: Hello, I don't know what level you are but the biggest advice I can give you, is to not overfocus on what champ or lane. Play whatever you feel like initially, so you really get your own feel for roles and champions. Maybe one week you'll be an Ori main, and the next you'll be like yeee Mundo, that's my thing. Aggressive play does not exist, in and of itself; there's High Risk, High Reward playstyle, usually associated with hard carry champions, the likes like Riven, Trynd - any bruiser, pretty much (melee-damage champs). Then there's the balanced, I wanna farm, kind of playstyle, but that only exists because your enemy laner is stronger than you early on and you just have to bide your time. You cannot farm if you don't show some aggression, because the enemy lane will just bulldozer over you. That means you will need to learn how to trade, and that will come naturally as you play. At this point in time, seeing as you're not really aware of the intricacies of laning just yet, please do not worry about "aggressive" or "passive" play and whichever fits the champion most. At best, you'll find that as a... well I play botlane, so let's say I'm playing vayne-lulu and the enemy is lucian-zyra, for example, initially you'd like to farm more than trying to outtrade an enemy who you know is stronger than you early on, so you'll be warding, trying to not overextend, do safe, quick trades when the enemy missteps, and quietly wait your time. You try to make sure your cs deficit compared to the enemy is not too incredibly big ( because they have the upper hand by default early on ), bide your time, and when your time comes, you will go for it. There is not a single scenario, not a single champion, that does not, and will never, show aggression in lane, not even in this scenario. The game is also about psychology - if you show the enemy constantly that you do not want to fight, do not want to trade, and are retreating all the time, they will capitalize on your weakness and you will be unable to farm. I hope this kind of makes sense - and please don't forget that lots of advice on the forums here are from people who are not very good at the game. Take everything with a grain of salt - including my post, of course - but I am saying this to you because when I was new, I was worried about the same things. And as a result I settled in a role and in champions that did not make me happy in the long term. I do not have so strong personality that I can easily swap my lane or champions or whatever esp when I play with my friends, so I'm kinda "stuck" in those lanes just because when I was level 20 and barley hit 30 i figured that I 'could never carry because i'm afraid and i can't be aggressive ever'. It was a stupid mindset and it cost me a lot. So, hence my advice, please do not worry about aggression or passive or whatever. Find a champ you like by just playing the game, chilling, enjoying, trying different lanes out. Edit: In terms of actual, straight up points, the guy you quoted (on teemo, malz, etc) are making points - but Teemo is only good in lane because of his completely stupid harass. If I'm playing any melee champion, early on Teemo will almost always win unless he massively messes up, but if you never rightclick me or blind me as Teemo I will kill you before I'm even 6. :) Teemo, in that sense, is very aggressive in its own way. I hope this makes sense? But if you're avoiding massive all-in fights the way Riven likes to do, then sure, Teemo is a better bet. There are not many massive-all in champs - it is always better to trade first, all-in later, because that is how you measure the dmg you do, vs the dmg he does, and how he's playing ("oh he always flashes to the left" or "oh he dodges downwards", or "ok he likes to E in and then Q out for some reason"). You should check out on youtube etc what trading is all about!
I'd like to add if you don't like the laning - I love this about this game - you could try jungling,l but jungling has its whole own can of worms that can be a tilting experience, especially as a new player - if you're up against a good enemy jungler, you can really get sad. If you accept the fact that yes, this can be the case, and you will be literally unable to enter your own jungle sometimes as you learn the role, then this could be a thing for you. Also, everyone will blame junglers until the elo where they realize there's literally no point wasting even 10s typing something to the jungler Don't worry about people flaming you. They're bad themselves, I guarantee it. /mute all As for lanes and champions that really are about "biding your time", there's Nasus, but you said he's banned - there's also the likes of Yorick, who is not even that bad early on but he, too, likes to quietly wait for Dat Moment, then there's the late-game carries that are not very good early and will avoid trades early if they can help it against most lanes - Ryze, Vladimir. You can play all of those in top, even though Ryze is mostly in the midlane normally. You can definitely get away in toplane with whatever you want, especially in your elo. Most midlaners up until challenger tier, I expect, are hit or miss (one game you have a god, the next you have a 0/12 yasuo with 20 cs at 20 mins), do not worry about your midlane skills if the lane appeals to you - remember that 80% of other midlaners will probably do equally bad/good as you. Midlane, to summarize, is about "push and roam" (crudely summarized) - as a midlaner you are responsible for map presence, helping jungle invades, roaming top and bot to extend your lead that you already slowly built up in your lane. Toplane in lower elos is mostly an island nobody cares about and randomly joins the game when either team is about to breach the enemy base. :D It's why I started playing toplane initially. Champs there are a bit tankier too and it's overall a more forgiving experience for newcomers, or so I felt. Not sure I still agree with myself on that one. Botlane is a lane that might appeal to you, it is very versatile and you need to be a versatile player because you always play with someone else, very closely, and everyone has their own skills and playstyle. Additionally, your playstyle will also have to change depending on what the enemy has, and as there's many different botlanes possible, add to that the different kind of jungle presences, botlane requires fluid gameplay that appealed to me a lot. Amazing adcs will kill their lanes and have good farm- good adcs will have good farm. Average adcs will get some kills but little farm, bad adcs will make you leave lane - your job as a support is to make sure your adc can farm as effective as possible, and later on to protect him. And yes, that does involve some balls, and some trading, but it's ok if the first 30 games you're like "f* it i'm just gonna stand here and only press shield on him", too. :D ADC is very fun, but it can be stressful if you're new to the game (heck it is to me and I'm a shitty plat, really not new to the game either)
: I think this is very helpful thank you. So, no mid or ADC - check. I could try Teemo and Darius, but Malzahar plays mid so I won't give him a try I guess. I noticed you didn't mention tanks at all - why is that? Do you think they need to play aggressively or they are just irrelevant? "zerging" didn't know this word, thanx :D

: TFT - Ambience (frog sounds) cannot be muted individually
You can work-around, if you have the patience, like so: go to sound settings scroll down and check the Mute All box With that box muted, check Ambience sound so that one is muted Now uncheck the mute all sound. The frog noise will be gone at least until you are ported to someone else's field...

: Am I misunderstanding something about normal draft pick mode?
People play normals because they want a relaxed, stress-free game where they don't have to worry about mmr. It is also the place to play with friends of different rank than you - in my case, I'm a lowly plat, but I play with my master friends in normal draft. It's also the place where you try new champions and new builds. So no, the game modes are completely different - for me. And for you, obviously, this is not the case. Normal is normal, ranked is ranked, expectation in either mode are individual and personal and there'll never be consensus. I don't expect anything from either ranks. While I respect your humility, I don't think you should talk down to yourself like that. We're lowly shitters compared to faker, but we still get the same enjoyment out of this game as the godtier players. So, if you wish to play ranked, please do. Do not let your ping deter you (and honestly, 30-40 ms is not even that high, I've had people with 200 ms in my games). Honestly, I'm fairly sure that with your attitude you displayed in this post I'd rather have you in my team than the majority of toxic, feeding gorilla's I normally endure. That being said, toxic, inting, etc. are reportable and by extenstion bannable behaviours no matter what game mode.

: /mute all mutes pings as well
Yeah, this is actually a serious problem, people are not even aware this is happening and it makes for chaotic games if you're a /mute all player (like myself). I haven't tried but does it work to do /mute all, followed by /muteping all - the latter should unmute pings?
: RIOT! WHEN WILL YOU FINALLY FIX THESE BUGS? WARDS ARE COMPLETELY USELESS SOMETIMES, IF THIS HAPPENS
I am fairly sure the baron thing only happens in Spectate, by the way. I have never seen it on live, but maybe that's just me. You can also see this happen when you watch LCS
: I don't agree, you can't really compare his permanent ultimate with some runes like aery. They don't have the same impact on the game nor the same usage.
That's a pretty poor argument to justify inconsistency. Just because in your opinion, the "impact is not so great", doesn't mean that the impact is indeed negligible. This issue has bothered me for as long as I can remember and yes, I have capitalized on it numerous time when this happened to the enemy, and yes, those were game winning plays.

: Okay but, is there a way to do it anyway?
As said, no reason to do it even if it were possible (and it probably is possible to manually manage RAM on some complex deep level of nerdiness that I am not prepared to research right now - for such specific questions, these are really the wrong boards), but maybe we can be more helpful if you tell us why you'd like to do it and find another solution for your problem.

Currently there's been authenticating issues across the board, so it could very well be it's not you, but just unlucky timing.

: It usually comes from the ones got stomped the most, people with 0/11/5 in general. Your best solution would be to disable the All Chat function as it's never used for anything constructive.
ofc, that's because 'ez' is a sarcastic comment on how rough something actually was
: Can people stop saying "ez"
Sarcasm to make light of a rough situation. Like you'd say "fantastic weather" when it's crap weather. You're not insulting the weather, but the situation. It means "this game was hard, but gg, we made the best of it" and you do this by making light of the situation and saying "ez". You're not insulting the players, but the situation. Think of it as a short for "not even close" (similarly used). Like in TFT earlier today, both our last dudes at 1 HP and mine dies, and guy goes "ez" - take it as it's meant, and that's how. Ez is rude if you actually are getting dumpstered
: @Riot Eambo: What's up with the EuW-Server and Client lately?
They released a heavily anticipated new game mode (20 hour queue on PBE for it!) and a new champion at the same time. Everyone and their moms are trying to get on league and it looks like the servers simply lack the capacity (that's at least why they said they disabled practice/custom mode) I think the first line says it all anyways, I don't know why they released both at the same time, why not space it out

: me and my high gol-low plat team have lost 1v5 vs a grandmaster vayne
matchmaking and MMR vs the league you're in has been one big %%%%fest since literally forever, I heard that riot has even asked op.gg to remove their calculated MMR, presumably cause they don't like their system to secondguess (a lot more accurately than their own) player skill level. I really am trying to understand why the system works the way it does, but the reality is that in the current system you can 1) get matched against a master vayne as a gold player, 2) can be silver 2 and have plat1 MMR and subsequently play with and against plat1 player while still only gaining 23 LP per win and not skipping promotions, and 3) have a team and enemy team containing such VARIETY of skill levels in low gold and below that you honestly wonder how all these people are still having fun in the russian roulette that is low elo (I thought this was sorted, but I have a new account now and am witnessing first hand how disastrous this must be, and I have distinct memories of my own low silver days where... where you never knew what kind of players you'd be playing with or against, gods or bots).
: if i unbind the chat key i cant write /mute all and if i see people int it allways triggers me to write something .. so i thought a perman chatbann could help me to dont flame my mates
hello, You can always create a macro on your mouse or keyboard that does Enter press /mute all Enter Press and unbind your chat key in game. Then if you press the macro button you still mute all, but without being able to type. That being said I think it'd be a lot better to try and work on your self-control. Take this as part of your learning curve in this game. So a good way to learn behavior control is to have a reward. This can be anything, like a cookie (you're not allowed any of those cookies unless you didn't flame your team), and then you're allowed 1 cookie after the game. Pick what's best for you, and when you get better, up the stakes, like, "10 games of no flaming mates and I can buy that new movie" or "if I go through this week without flaming I can get my new RAM" whatever random examples. point is changing yourself is not easy, and you will fail for sure, but if you keep at it, you'll become a better person and that's a good goal to have in life in general.

I mean - I don't play the game like: Oh boy, with the next feature I'll love this game but up until now I hate it, yet still play it Position Ranks are really nothing I absolutely want and need in my life. It'll be a failure anyway. If we are lucky, they drop it before it even reaches EUW.
Obviously he absolutely wants and needs it, so I don't see why your wants and needs surpasses his. That being said, you can no longer, with a straight face, compare between the different regions if their climbing systems are different. This is ironic, because in that same patch they want to even out how different the skill level is between master players in different regions.
