: Who Was Your First Main Champion!
My first actual main was Veigar, although I started out swapping around champions like Pantheon and Tryndamere... Now I play most lanes (just not jungle), my favourite champion is a close call between Gnar and Teemo - even though my best role probably is support where I play the likes of Lulu and Morgana. {{sticker:sg-lulu}}

What's wrong with Teemo?! {{sticker:sg-janna}} --on a more serious note: that's quite some demands - good luck finding someone who fills your specific needs--

Hi there! Most of the advice or help we can give you is subjective, but let's try anyway. _______________ First, a fact, the only constant in your games is you. You are in every game you play, the more consistent you are the more consistent the results will be (this goes both ways). Try to not let your teams mentality drag you down. Play your own game, get strong, make that one deciding move in a teamfight and the game can be turning in your favor already! Patience is key. Some champions naturally grow stronger than other when the game goes on for longer, giving you the chance to start winning if you just hold on for long enough. (Yes, I am one of those NEVER SURRENDER people ;p). Your enemy is bound to make a mistake somewhere, if you manage to pick up on that and use that mistake to your advantage you might be changing the course of the game. (note: usually it's better to ignore your (flaming) teammates and/or chat to them. If they're tilting it tends to just nake it worse even if you're being nice. Mute them if their chat distracts you too much - since climbing is about consistency getting distracted/annoyed by them won't book you many results. ~~Not pretending to be a saint btw, everyone can get annoyed by them at bad days. Just be the bigger person and ignore/mute.~~) Second part of this; when you got completely worked up and/or annoyed over a previous loss - take a small break. Go watch a video on YouTube, unstress in a normal game - anything that helps you avoiding taking your emotions from the previous game into the next. If you're already tilted or on the verge of being tilted, the next game will just make it worse and you're going to make more mistakes/do bad yourself resulting in another loss. Safe yourself from those horrible tilting losing streaks ;). As a bonus: In my opinion (it's a common opinion I think) it's easiest to climb by focusing on a small set of champions (if you'd stalk my profile you'll see I don't actually always listen to this, but hear me out!): By focusing on one or two champions in larger chunks of games (example: play 4 games of Teemo in a row, then let's say Poppy for a game or two, to continue with 4 more Teemo games etc) you will start to grasp the strengths and weaknesses of that champion. You play them a lot, so your mechanics on them slowly improve, you have more feeling of when and who you can fight - when to engage etc. On top of that playing on a champion you're comfortable with will make it so you can start paying attention to other things as well (cs, dragon/herald, junglers, vision) which will help your game in the long run! _________________ You don't have to be a god to climb, you just have to **consistently** play slightly better, smarter and/or more patient than your opponent. Good luck! {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
: If I would duo with the G1 dude, I would not post this in here because i am sad about this game xD. I look at the J4 and the Vlad in the enemy team. They didnt play duo que (from op.gg). It was just the matchmaking which is obviously garbage... For example: If the P4 player played with the S1 guy. You should get some G3-G2 player against you (maybe also a P4 and a S1). But not a Silver 2 player. It would be possible if i played with the G1 guy, but i didn`t.
I know, it was just an example since not everyone in your team had a rating yet. The botlane on your team was premade and after placements it appears the support got about the same rating as you did ;). The problem is that for the matchmaking, in your example, the match wouldn't be "fair". The silvers mmr is most likely way lower than that of G3-G2 players, meaning the match would be in favour (regarding mmr) of the opponents. As far as the matchmaking can make it "fair", it did. It's not garbage, just not always as smart as you'd wish it was :P.
Hashashin (EUW)
: Ranked deecay during placements
To answer your question: We've seen decay during placements with other players, so yes you'll lose points if you're not playing before the timer runs out. Since you're still in placements, I'd encourage you to just play one more game - you can't really lose LP yet anyway ;p. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
: As Silver 2 player against Platinum 4
Usually cases like these are caused by premades. When you duoqueue (for example the G1 in your team could still have queued with you or the S1 in your team) the system has to find opponents that are of equal skill. Especially if the G1 in this case would have high mmr, this would mean that the P4 is placed in your match to equal their mmr (and make the match even). I obviously can't tell who are premade, it could also be on the enemy team - or even in both teams. ___________________ It can also be caused by the mmr of you and your (silver)teammates being good while the mmr of the p4 and gold opponents is pretty bad thus dragging them down into a silver/low gold game. _This one was suggested earlier in the comments._ If there weren't any premades with a big mmr gap between them, it's simply the mmr of the players in the game being respectively bad or good and you got matched that way.

: Do you actually get worse players in your promos?
It sure does feel that way sometimes, doesn't it? There's a few reasons as to why it feels like this, but in reality the answer to your question is "no". Why it feels that way? Promotional games are special, they're "more important" so you're automatically inclined to try harder and play better... as a result you'll see (more) of the bad play that happens in your team - since you're trying so hard to win. You really just want to win, so any loss sucks extra hard :(. If you look at the losses/wins on your way to promos, you'll see similar cases of people feeding in your or the enemy team. These games happen at any stage of your climb - sometimes in the form of a free win, sometimes in the form of a loss. Don't worry, eventually you'll win them! ###### I mean it only took me 5 series to hit Silver 1 first time around... {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}

: I'm just sucking at League no matter what i try
Hi there! Since you're reasonably new to the game, the easiest way to improve is to just keep on playing! League of Legends has 143 different champions each with at least 4 different abilities and a passive, so there's tons to learn! Now onto farm (cs). It's completely natural to not be godlike at last hitting when you just start playing. It's one of the skills/mechanics in League and yes, it's a pretty important one. Last hitting minions (which has your cs score go up) gives you gold, if you have more gold than your opponent you have an advantage. The skill won't magically come to you and you're best off simply practising it in your games. Try to focus a bit on the minions when in laning phase and attack them when they're so low you'll land the killing blow! You can also practise lasthitting in botgames/practise tool where the environment is a bit nicer (no real players trying to kill you! :P). Also don't worry about your kda too much. Sure adc stands for attack-damage-carry but that doesn't mean you have to carry or have to have most kills. It's common for adc to get kills since they have the most conistent damage in the team, but there's no harm done in gathering assists if you simply lack the damage (don't have the items/gold) or have a more supportive/safe playstyle. ~~I mean I rarely have a lot of kills as adc so I'll just pretend I have a very supportive playstyle indeed....~~ If you feel unsure about champions you're playing or are curious how high elo players play them - you can always try to find educational content on youtube! There's a lot of players out there, so there's enough for them to tell you :). Good luck! {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
: New record for me! Im proud of myself! <3
Great job! If you keep this up you will find yourself climbing pretty rapidly! {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}

: I've contacted support about smurfing. They say they can't/won't punish smurfs
They won't punish the ones that do try to win - since these types of Smurfs usually quickly rise to the elo they're supposed to be in. As long as they keep to the summoners code, riot won't punish players for smurfing. They do, however, punish smurfs that intentionally lose games to remain in low elo on low mmr. This is the kind of Smurfs OP is talking about in his ticket I believe :).

A few per year, usually around in-game events since those give us a nice theme to go with! Just stick around the boards and eventually one will popup again :).
: What happened to the story event, or was I late?
The story event is hosted by some people from the UK Riot office, I **THINK** they'll be announcing it next week (as she said 4 days ago she **PROBABLY** would do so) - but I can't give you an exact date yet.

#Missions We know we're late and we've heard all you guys. Sadly that doesn't mean the missions are ready yet. We're postponing them until around (probably after) new years eve. {{sticker:sg-soraka}} Now don't worry about having time to do them, as we will extend the deadline for the missions and give you guys some extra time! _________ #Update Late once again! I know, I know... We're cancelling the missions for now, there have been some (un)expected problems preventing us from launching them on time ~~twice now~~. **WHY?!?!?!** (tl;dr We failed.) {{sticker:sg-shisa}} We didn't have enough time, both because we started to late and some of us got extremely busy irl. This means we did not have the time we should have had to test things - resulting in a bunch of errors we could not fix (oops). When we posted this thread and said we were launching the missions on a slightly later date we were still very hopeful things would work out; sadly they didn't. I know messages about this were late, it still was the holidays and most of us had vanished to their families. When we delayed them until New years we hoped it would give us the time needed, it didn't. **And now?** These will come back at a later date on another event. We'll use the coming weeks/months to actually get things to work and next time we won't dissapoint you!

: Whenever you get a new stuff assigned to your account, a small yellow dot appears in the collection in the tab corresponding with the type of thing you got. You should get it even if a Rioter manually adds stuff to your account. For instance, if you got your emote, you'll find that your "emotes" tab under collection has a glowing dot until you click on that tab. Newly added item also has this dot attached to its image. It's probably gone by now though. Sadly, this is not traceable in your Purchase History as viewed by the user.
Just to clarify: You do **not** get a notification like missions/gifts when rewards are granted to your account. The only indicator is the one MadEclair has explained - so the dot indicating there's something new in your collection. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
