: Hmm, I personally don't play a lot of ADC, but I can assure you that you can carry with each role. However, being an ADC main in low elo is in some instances even harder than being a Support main (I was a support main from Gold 2 last season, so maybe it is different in Silver and below). You see, when my ADC was bad I would just try to roam and help other lanes. That way I could create pressure. Unfortunately, you can't really roam as ADC when your support sucks. I still think that you can climb with every role, and ADC is certainly a role at which you can carry hard. But you can't rely on your support the same way you can in higher elo. I hope the answer was sufficient :) TL: DR Yes you can, but if your Supp is bad act as if he isn't there. Don't expect him to help you out.
I just saw this Reddit post on Summoner school. The comments answer the question on how to carry with a bad supp pretty well :) https://www.reddit.com/r/summonerschool/comments/bgh1x1/carry_your_lane_as_adc/

: Is it for the meme ???
That is like saying Top lane Soraka is broken if she just kills you a bunch of times. You mentioned the counterplay yourself bud. Don't try to outtrade them early if your champ is weaker than theirs early. Play safe, get the cs you can and be more useful in team fights. I agree that Irelias kit is very strong when played by good players, but Riven? She has plenty of counterplay.
: So this happened....
I have it the same way. Got 16 lp for a win and -21 for a lost. Still get that sometimes, but after around 16 games in Diamond, i am starting to get 18 and 19 lp per win. I don't know why, but apparently you just have to play a lot of games for the mmr to "catch up" which makes no sense.
: Champ Design - Blakenee (Manipulator of Life and Death)
Looks like an exciting champion. Her current kit could be a bit too much like a mix between Azir and Zyra though. But nonetheless, looks like she could be a really cool champ :D
: Well it kind of is because what does it achieve? 1) They're going to go %%%% you and feed harder to spite you. 2) They're going to flame back and stop concentrating No one in the history of league has ever SUDDENLY started solo 1v5 dominating after some guy from botlane said 'stop feeding'
*Jungler to Top laner:* HEY YOU IDIOT. STOP DYING! *Toplaner:* Oh wow, sry man. My bad. *Proceeds to get a Pentakill and 1v5.*

: Recently got diamond, now I'm getting 14 LP.
Yea, that is how Diamond is right now. I used to get upwards of 25 lp per win and -15 per loss, now i get +16 for a win and -20 for a loss. Took me 7 wins and 1 loss to get to Diamond 4 80 lp, then i lost 4 games and was down to 0 lp again. You have to have either a huge winstreak or a 65% winrate to climb through Diamond 4.

: "Whatever that means, I do not think that you are in the right position to make such arguments. You seem very tilted currently, and that is not the right time to "predict what is going to happen" (or be posting about it). " I don't need a position to comment on the ranking system my friend. It's my opinion on the ranking system for the game that i have been playing from very long time. I give 10/10 on all the other areas. It's just the ranked solo mode in this year is the worst experience. Also, you need to do some research on DOTA 2 and its rules for ranked games, later you will understand what exactly i am talking. At least ranked is not meant for afk's, trollers and feeders. Penalties should be high in ranked. 1 report ban for a week. Of course not all players can have unlimited reporting. Good kda players, 1 report per week. By the way, just wanted to know whom i am having this conversation with, and does it really make any difference.
You are right that you do not need "a position" to comment on the ranking system. But since you used "a position" as a validation for your argument, I thought you were keen on using it. To my knowledge, Dota 2 is made up of 6 tiers, with a 7th tier working as a "Top x players". You get into the tiers by having x amount of MMR. That sounds a whole lot like Riots ranked system, and I have been told by a friend of mine who plays Dota 2, that the game too have had ranked issues in the past. The way you want the report system to work simply has too many plot holes, and will only create more problems. Getting banned for 1 week for a report is way too harsh, and will only make people unhappy. The fact that players with good KDA should get benefits is outrageous. We just discussed how a high KDA easily can be misleading, and now you suggest that Riot rewards that? The current report system has flaws, but they are not easily fixed. FInding out who is trolling, and who is simply dying a lot and having a bad game, is much harder than you would think. It requires a Riot employee to watch the majority of the match. Riot does not want to punish a player unless they are 100% the player is doing something wrong. People who are toxic are much easier to detect and punish, simply because it is not as vague as trolling. You have solid proof from the chat logs, that the player was toxic. When talking about AFK's, then they already get punishments. Low priority queue for example. No, it does not make any difference who you are talking with :) My arguments should be what you judge me on, not who I am.

: I usually dont complain about the modes in any of the games. The way RIOT is matching up with players in Ranked is horrible. I just now played 4 games and all the games i had afk's. By the way i am on the other server. My kda looks almost the same as you. That's how i play these games. Your quote: "but I do not think that Riot would want to take advice from you and "work for the betterment of the game" with you when they themselves have Professional game designers and balancers working fulltime jobs doing exactly that." I guess they are not doing the right way. And of course why would they take my advice when money is flowing in their accounts. I am not here to make any judgments or hurt anybody, its the fact that if the ranking system is not good and if this continues the same way, you will see the downfall of this game in the coming years. (i say this because i am in this industry for more than a decade ad i can see what's going to happen) Why do you think DOTA 2 game has more number of players? I don't play DOTA but i have studied their logic and the game is far better.
And as I said in my first reply, we as casual players do not have the right perspective when looking at the game. You tell me that you have been in "the industry for more than a decade". Whatever that means, I do not think that you are in the right position to make such arguments. You seem very tilted currently, and that is not the right time to "predict what is going to happen" (or be posting about it). Each season there have been something people complained about. No matter if it was the tank meta, the ardent meta, the new jungle camps in season 5, the new jungle items, etc. While some of them did bring something unhealthy to the game, it is normal for a game as huge as League of legends. A game in constant change and adaptation, it is not always easy to make sure each part of the game is completely 100% bug-free. The ranked system was in a weird spot in VERY HIGH ELO for the first couple of months, but that is changed now. If you were in Diamond 1+ elo, then yes I can see that you would have had a hard time with all those Diamond 5's in your games, but if you were lower then there is nothing wrong with the ranked system.

I am not sure you have read my entire comment because you just said yes to playing the same way I did by having a great KDA, but actually being the reason the game was lost. I do not agree that the game is at its downfall, and I highly doubt that Dota 2 has more players than League of Legends. Dota 2 has other problems than League of legends, 1 amongst many is that the game is far more complex and harder for new players to pick up.

: WORST RANKING EVER CODED!
I am not trying to shit talk you in any way when saying this, but I do not think that Riot would want to take advice from you and "work for the betterment of the game" with you when they themselves have Professional game designers and balancers working fulltime jobs doing exactly that. I am convinced that Riot is doing an extremely good job of balancing the game, even though they have mishaps and bugs occasionally. League of legends is if you look at other games and mobas, very very very balanced. I do not think that casual players like you and I can see that all the time but they are. Each time we complain about something or talk about the game being unfair, we are failing to see the big picture. Since you have posted this with a profile that has not played rank this season, I cannot see any of these games you have talked about, but if I saw them I am fairly certain that in some of these matches, you have made mistakes that have cost your team the game. Now, you may have had a good KDA and made good plays, but that does not mean that you weren't the reason your team lost. How do I know this? Well, I have done it myself. I consistently got a 6 kda+ in most of my games and died less than 1 time in lane phase per game. However, I was playing way too passively, and therefore actually made my team lose a lot of fights unintentionally. Many games i lost i was 5/1/14 and 1/0/12, but i still made huge mistakes. TL:DR Riot does their job well. We are just too blinded by our own perspective to see it.

: Can you read? What I wrote there clearly states she's much weaker. What her difficulty has anything to do with her abilities being way worse than befor? You can make every champion difficult to play by making it unplayable but that doesn't mean it's a good decision.
No need to throw personal insults in there buddy, that is just childish. You wrote that you felt her kit was weaker, because among other things she had a "Skillshot on her q instead of a point and click" and you aren't able to AA while ulting (Instead you get get a damaged cone around you and an opportunity to reposition in fights, which I personally think is still fine.)
Xiley (EUNE)
: https://www.leagueofgraphs.com/champions/stats/kayle/kr/top/master Master+ Korea.
That is not the site I have seen it on, but this looks more legit, so I find you correct. However, her overall win rate in master Korea is according to this site 51,5%, not 48%. 51,5% is still good, and in master where games are short and kayle often not gets her power spike, I would say 51% might even be strong.
Composure (EUNE)
: What's the reason for Vayne to have invisibility????
Ahh, i have found the problem. You lost against a Vayne who popped off 3 days ago. That is fine mate, I fully understand now.
Composure (EUNE)
: > That is a very rude approach, pal. Why come to the boards if you do not want talk to League players? It may be rude, but I'm not saying I don't want to talk with league players. I want to talk with league players who does not only play league of legends and has some experience with other games because they don't have this narrow viewpoint about game balancing issues and other stuff.
That does not make sense at all. That is like saying to a group of soccer players "If you only play soccer you don't understand the game! You have to play at least 10 games of handball before being able to talk strategy with me about soccer!" Completely nonsense mate. Now that that is out of the way,I will answer your question. Vayne needs her invisibility for a number of reasons. First off she has low range for an ADC, and in a game where there are tons of dmg and cc every game, you will simply not be able to deal any damage as Vayne in a team fight without it. Her tumble giving her invisibility is a completely fair mechanic, that does not make her op, just viable. When that is said, her current state is too strong. Not because of the invisibility though, but because she is too forgiving in the lane phase.
Xiley (EUNE)
: This only proves Riot balance team has no clue what they're doing. On the best server (KR) she has only 46% win rate and in NA 48% in Master+. I wouldn't even say low winrate on the best server is definitive proof that she sucks but if you look at what her abilities do, how they interact with other champions and her range then you'll realize she's a really bad champion right now.
Idk where you have those numbers, but they are incorrect. On Korea Kayle has a 54% winrate in the top lane on all eloes, which INCREASES the higher mmr she gets.
Xiley (EUNE)
: Maybe because those stats are based on low elo matches and you can't really judge whether a champion is good or bad in low elo. Secondly, Riot ranking system tries to keep you close to 50% win rate so even if you were completely useless you can often get carried by your team. Because of that solo queue stats aren't really a good indicator whether a champion is good or bad. When you want to judge a champion you're supposed to look at how abilities themselves work and their numbers and plenty of Kayle's new abilities are a joke compared to what she had befor. Right now you can't auto attack when you use R and you could do that befor rework. Right now her Q is a skillshot that can be blocked by minions, befor it was point and click.
So the champion is harder to play, and therefore should have less succes in low elo. Oh wait... Xiley your logic is something i cannot follow.
Devrost (EUW)
: Tell this to the guy that was bronze 5 and now is plat...S9 luck is probably the best think it can happen to climb. There is no more s6 where you could carry on your own.Now is all about teammates and picks.
It is a bug, not luck. Riot games' new matchmaking system had a flaw, that is now fixed. In mid-season everything is back to normal
Devrost (EUW)
: Well you got lucky to get smurfs..This proves luck is more important then skills. Enemy team can get them too and you lose..And when you get winstreak always expect losing streak too
Luck is not more important than skill... you can be unlucky, but if you play well, you will climb. Elo hell does not exist, and luck is not something that will make or break a season.
Devrost (EUW)
: Blame riot.. Honestly this season is %%%%%%ed.I even saw ex bronze 5 players in plat this season.I got this enemy lee i asked him..if he got boosted.Now his winrate was pretty bad..however he got p4.From bronze 5 xd he started iron 3. I mean..this is why people cant even play the game anymore.Too many people climb because of season start.Too mutch lp gain.And most of them dont deserve the elo they have.Yet they reset ladder only in diamond+. Sure riot..Let bronzies in my game.They deserve to get plat easy peasy.
Well, this was not a rant about riot matchmaking. In most of my games i had players who were smurfs, on a 10 game win streak and played well. We just lost because they either underperformed for some reason, or a bad baron call was made, enemy team had an extremely lucky play and so on. That is why i put the word "curse" in, because it seemed like these games should be wins. But it seem like i have broken the spell now :)
Xiley (EUNE)
: She's really not. Good luck laning vs good Viktor/Jayce/Cassio/Yasuo etc. She can't do anything vs these champions.
Could it be that you think this way because you have lost 4 games in a row with her? I mean Jayce, Viktor and Cassio are all bully top laners that counter most other top laners. I would like to say that she has a 55% winrate with a 10% pickrate in Korea, and a 53% winrate on EUW. That is pretty decent i would say. I know numbers isn't everything, but champions that is "Absolute garbage" USUALLY don't have a 55% winrate.

Is it though? Yesterday I played ranked. It went for 50 minutes and our Vayne had 13.5k gold and 20k player damage. If you get mad about players like this that is not about being in unhealthy state. On the contrary if you do not get mad about players like this I would call that unhealthy state of mind. I agree that plenty of people flame too much without any real reason to do so(like after 1-2 mistakes which everyone can do or blame their mistakes on teammates). But sometimes the flame is well deserved and you would have to be freaking monk to not ,,rage" at some players.
I too have had games where my ADC had 2300 dmg in a 30-minute game (no joking and this was diamond elo), but flaming her would not have mattered. Just keep a cool head, always! I don't care if you go 0/3 in placements while maintaining a 9.5 KDA, you should never get mad at teammates.

.... i think you missed my point, because your perspective on the matter is exactly what i tried to argue against. If you lose more than 5 games in a row, you are clearly the problem, not your teammates. I am fairly certain that if i hadn't made certain mistakes in those 3 games, i would have won them. If you play perfect every game, and i mean PERFECT, your winrate should easily be 80%. Often higher.

: Hey! Do you know a thing or 2 bout support? help me out!
I would say that until at least level 30, warding and protecting your ADC is the only things you really can do. Things like deep warding, all ins at level 2 in lane and roaming, are stuff that requirers both Support and ADC to know what they are doing, and know what to do in certain situations. I would advice that you learned a big support champion pool. Maybe 1 from each "Playstyle" Alistar or Braum could be your tank, Brand or Zyra your Ap support, and Janna or Soraka your healer/Shielder. Champions like Thresh, Pyke and Bard are also fun, but they are hard to learn and even harder to master :)

I have not. I will add you when I get home tonight :) I am still out of town.

This seemed like one big rant, with no real purpose. A lot of what you are saying does not make any sense due to poor grammar, and your ego seems to be through the roof "...till some pro player started playing it in lcs and he did it wrong." I am sry to say this, but I do not believe you are more knowledgeable about meta and how to play certain champions than pro players. Secondly, a lot of the changes you suggest is simply not big problems. It seems like you are one of those players who think that just because you do not know how to play against it, or it counters your main champion, it is broken and should be changed. I suggest you stop playing LoL. If you think it is that shit, then don't play it. Have a great day :)
