: WINNING OR LOSING DOESN'T MATTER FOR PLACEMENTS.
Yeah, it is mostly the MMR from your past season that decide your faith xD. But the placements games does matter still because if you loose more than you win your MMR will be lower, therefore you will only win for example 20 lp and loose 21lp whereas if you go 10-0 on your placements I am pretty sure you will earn 30 lp per game and loose 16 lp or something like that. So at the end your placements games will allow you to either climb fast or slowly or even stuck for a certain period

: adc role need balance
I main midlane, and play a lot of support, I actually love this role, Playing champs like Leona, Nautilus, ... that can peel the adc and engage, I love putting vision,... Whenever I play ADC i ask my self why can't I have a support like me, just someone who really enjoy the support role, and know what to do, not a dude that will pick Brand support into a Tresh and not even build a sighstone. I myself sometimes play AP supps but I only do it under certain circumstances, when enemy team comp is squishy and they have a supp like soraka. But I understand you it is really frustrating to play with those type of supports. I actually used to play a lot of ADC but I quit this role because of that, ADC is the most enjoyable role when it comes to mechanics but also the worst because you have to lane and rely on someone else, and your faith is not always between your hands. Whereas in midlane, you are the one responsible for your acts, if you feed or get fed it is nobody's else but your fault. Playing on a solo lane allows you to play the way you want, playing with a supp is not always good because you wont always have the same playstyle. I play Lucian exclusively mid now, because I dont want to lane with someone else. You seem like you are really frustrated and that is completely understandable, it happens to all. But dont give up, sometimes you will just get the worst possible team mates, 10 games in a row, idk why but it happens sometimes you have bad luck but eventually you will get through this and have better supports. The only kind of advices that I can give you is to start playing mid, you can play some ADC midlane such as Corki and Lucian. And also try to find someone that main support and is also tired of getting autofilled adc's. Once you find this guy duo q with him, you will both get benefit from it. I can't see any other advices than that I guess its 50% skill and 50% luck nowadays on league. I dont think riot can do anything about this because ADC's are not weak, its just the fact that adc's needs a support, if you buff adc's it will be too broken and people will complain about this, it is not funny to get two shot by a vayne or draven either. Remember the ardent censer meta, people were complaining because adc were too strong when their supports had this item. Hope I helped you somehow, Peace and good luck on the summoners rift

I love Leonas...in enemy team cos it's free early game

I love Leonas...in enemy team cos it's free early game I do not agree at all, there are 2 options: 1-You didn't played Leona in preseason with the new runes 2-You dont know how to play her, or its just not your playstyle to engage,... During the early phase you need to wait for level 3 or even 2 in some cases, you just E Q the poor lulu supp and ignite her. The all in is insane, and the dmg you deal is surprising. Ez first blood. The more the game goes, the more you become a beast, you can go really deep because you are so tanky, your CD on your spells is really short which allow you to have your ult at every TF. You can easily get your ADC fed and protect him. My brother actually climbed from low Silver to platinum 3 by maining Leona. Whenever she was banned or picked he used to pick Braum and it wasn't that effective because you can't play Braum really aggressively, the champ is not designed for that where as Leona is. You dont have to poke with leona, its all about all ins. +She is pretty easy to play, an Alistar would actually be more difficult to play because if you miss your combo, you can actually save ennemies.

: Why supports are a bad idea
First of all, there are different types of supports. I do agree that with some type of support mostly healers such as soraka, janna, lulu, nami, ... it is difficult to carry in low elo because you need to rely on someone else and your job is to protect your ADC, thus if he sucks you can protect him as much as you can he will still be useless. I only recommend those type of champions, if you are duo with the ADC or if you are higher than gold. BUT: other supports can hard carry in low elo: Tanks and engage type support such as Nautilus, Blitz, Tresh , Sion, Leona, ... are really good because you have the potential to engage a team fight, and in league it is one of the most important decision that you have to make: fight or disengage, which objective to take etc. Lets take the example of Leona, first of all you can get your adc fed pretty easily if you know how to play the champ and use your CC.

: Don't play at night due to matchmaker
This is not new in League playing at night increases your chance of getting "bad team mates" because on one hand, most people are tired when its very late, so they might not play at their full potential, they might troll a bit because they just want to play for fun before sleeping. And on the other hand, you might have drunk, drugged people, or simply kids that are supposed to be sleeping but are actually playing and trying to hide from their parents, which increases the stress level of people since they will be focusing on not getting caught xD. And this is even worst in low elos. If you want to play at a competitive level, dont play after midnight. Just play on a smurf or normal games if you want my advice :D Peace

: Hello
Hi... At the end of each game in normal (or ranked) there is on the top left or right W : ... L: .... It basicaly represent the amount of games you have played in that queue with the number of wins as well as loses. You can then use a calculator or smthing to calculate your win ratio. Sorry for my bad English. Have a nice evening
: From 14 days suspension to honor level 5 (it's possible!)
Or also you can just keep the chat and behave like a normal person. I am sure that if you play basketball with your friends or even strangers, and one of the players make a really stupid mistake that makes you loose the game, you wont insult him, because you will get troubles with that guy if you do so. Playing a video game on the internet shouldnt be different, it is not because you are Anonymous that you can be toxic and disrespectfull, think about it. At least you made the effort of not being toxic anymore, so congratulation, some people should try to do the same. But my point is just that if you think this way (that you are not Anonymous on the internet) you wont be toxic what so ever. Have a good day :)

: When is someone a good support?
A good support win his lane. Of course it depend on the champion you pick, but most support can bully the enemy adc, try to deny him from his farm by putting a lot of pressure. The amount of assist is obviously important because it shows your kill participation, but its not the only thing. Being able to put vision and clear enemy vision is also important. Your job is to cover the map by deep warding for instance or securing objectives (warding an infernal drake to prevent a lvl 5 Warwick to solo it during the early game) During the late game your job is to protect your ADC: preventing an assassin to get on him and one shot his poor little soul. Your itemization and the choice of your champion will allow you to do that, Shields + iron solary if ur playing lulu, or Knights vow and a lot of cc for a champ like Leona. Also it depend on which support you are playing, but for champion like Leona, nautilus, blitz, Rakan,.. your job is to engage, and look for opportunities: when the ennemy midlaner or adc miss position for 1 second you have to be able to punish that mistake. If you are playing Soraka, your job is in the backline, you need to heal your ADC but also your frontline. There are many other things that make you a good support, such as roaming to help your team when your adc is safe enough during the laning phase, or being reactive to ennemy jungler invades, by helping your jungler when he is getting invaded. As a support you can also take the initiative and make shot calls, like baron call, because your are normally more focused on the macro game than other roles (they have to farm, ...) so they might take more time to see a good opportunity of doing Something, dont be scared of doing calls, try to communicate with your team and use your pings. If you see a khazix that is about to gank top, say it to your toplaner that might forgot to Watch his mini map for a few seconds,... If you know where the jungler is, saying "khazix topside" also helps out your team. I am nearly a support main, I play a lot of this role and enjoy it. Wish you the best on the summoners rift, and sorry if my text is full of gramatical errors, my native language isnt English :p Peace {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
