: The guy above me gets it. If I'm going ranked I want to play my best, and I want my teammates to be playing their best. Are you sure about the queues? Are you sure you'd rather start playing asap with whatever instead of waiting 10 minutes but everyone gets their best roles?
I mean honestley if they just made support playable. Its a role the literally relies on the teams ability to play together. They SUPPORT by SUPPORTING the carries. If the ADC cant carry the support no matter how good (Beside Rakan you little shit xD) the Support just loses. I really wouldnt mind waiting 10-15 mins for a game that I know I lost because I was worse than the enemy.
: Please change how role selection works in ranked.
I'm just going to put this regardless of everyone's diminishing comments below about; "the system is fine" **I would rather wait double even triple the queue time in RANKED to get the roles I expect to play in a COMPETITIVE environment.** And now that has been said let me answer a few questions before you even type them: **A:** If I even see the comment "we want an option to avoid being given support". Maybe the reason people don't want to play support is because its so god damn awful. **B:** Now the argument of "you should be able to play all the roles" is really true yes but when your going into a queue and this is really mainly in the SOLOQ argument since they scrapped ranked teams ( for some reason ) to replace it with the joke called Flex. SoloQ is a place you go to be on your own or with a single friend if I put Mid and Bot as my main roles I expect that I should be playing those roles and in return my LP gains and losses should reflect those roles. If I get thrown into support and Im not the greatest at it and the enemy had a support who wanted too. Isn't really fair is it?

So just magically its 15 mins in silver and 10 in bronze

Yep, why did they do the whole season drop so I started at Bronze V from Silver. I mean I've had to climb 9 ranks this season to get to where I am. Not even gold.

: PBE is also mainly intended to weed out major bugs, and not balance specific changes. For that, the playerbase is way too small, and the skillgap in games way too large to gain accurate data.
Come on. We all know the PBE is used for Skin Spotlights and Patch notes for Brofresco.
Qunxin (EUNE)
: Meanwhile, at Riot Games...
Come on. We all know the PBE is used for Skin Spotlights and Patch notes for Brofresco.
: that wasn't my point. He had fun playing LoL for years, but now he doesn't. Same will most likely happen with HotS because it is even further away from balance than LoL is. The point was that he doesn't know about the flaws the game has yet.
But thats again not the point. You know how shit league has become since they sold out?
: After 5 years of playing League of Legends it has simply become infuriating and boring.
I feel and understand how you feel. Honestly league had died off for me and alot of people and riot are driving there game into the ground. #monitization/juggernauts
: >today was the first time i played HoTS and i ACTUALLY had fun with friends instead of being upset about unbalance and all the complaining about how broken someone is. And that's just because you don't know enough about the game.
But atleast in retrospect hes having fun. If league was meant to be better. Why isnt he having fun?
: They mechanic is only stupid if you let him walk at you. Why are you not punishing him for building armor first? Teemo is AP.
Build Zhonyas the only AP Viable armour Item. But then you sacrifice your mobility. He has Phage and a gap closer. Dont see what your getting at.
Rhasta (EUW)
: Champion Bans needs to be as significant as before.
I posted the same idea on reddit and got shunned. Fuck reddit
: I main Darius, and I know that I am slower than any Teemo. I only catch the idiots who stand and shoot for too long. Darius only gets fed when the rest of your team fails to apply the "dont stand in melee too long" rule and muck up your good "I didnt feed him in lane" work!
Darius has a stupid mechanic with hit kit in which if you get pulled in its pretty much gg for you unless you flash Stay the the middle of his decimate to get dealt reduced damage but get hit by AA's and his W or get hit by his decimate and then he heals for 12% Max health Darius gets around 470 Mov speed when he has deadmans plate and what not. Teemo can get up to 478 with Swiftness Boots and a fully maxed W. So much for being a swift scout.
: He can though. He has nasty evil poke and the ability to speed away from Darius "charges".
As a Teemo main with 150K points on him you cannot kill darius. It has to be a 100% Perfect kite for 15 seconds because regardless of how well your doing against him he will always get fed.
: I can help! Darius is melee, his whole niche is to dominate those who get close. While some champions can be general lane bullies, Darius is only a bully in melee. This means range can beat him. Any ranged champion will work well against Darius, especially those with gap makers and/or cc. Champions like; {{champion:268}} {{champion:51}} {{champion:42}} {{champion:81}} {{champion:150}} {{champion:67}} Now these are not the only champions that work, but they do have the ability to keep at range. Remember, apart from flash (which can be countered by another flash) Darius has to walk towards you to get into range. Learning how close he has to be to use his E will help, as well as considering his Q radius and the fact that {{item:3044}} will give him a minor speed boost. In most cases, just start to walk away when he gets close, save (but don't be miserly) your escape mechanics for when you really need them. Such as when you *can't* just walk away. Now, since Darius is a lane bully, he'll try and push you off the minion wave. This can be beneficial to you in two ways; 1) It means that the Darius player will in most cases be in yoru side of the lane, if he goes to physically run you away from the farming line. 2) Ok, you may be hampered a bit on farm, but this also means that the lane will be pushed towards your end. Both of these mean that your lane will be a prime target for your jungler to gank, even to the point of Darius' wards being little help if he is pushed up far enough. Also, if he is just Last Hitting, he can't really focus on bullying you, so take the opportunity to farm and poke him. Now on to Darius' mechanics. Apart from his infamous True Damage Ultimate, **all his skills deal physical damage**, so this makes building defences against him easier. HOWEVER, **he does have built in, and a fondness for buying armor penetration** so build health as well. Health will also help to mitigate the hurt, or really just prolong your survival, in the instance of him using his ultimate. His bleeds *will* bring you to full {{item:3071}} stacks if you are hit, so watch out. As for his Q, he has to hit you with **the blade** to apply his passive as well as his heal. Remember, if you have a dash, you can use it now to avoid that damage, if you don't want to use it, step closer, take the *reduced* damage and save the dash (if any) for when he gets his Noxian Might. When Darius does go full blood crazed; **_RUN_**. Simple as. Many champions have certain moments when you just have to keep away from them for a time, and this is one of them. Darius will get a shed load of AD so that his Ultimate will be far far far easier to kill you with, plus all his abilities and passive will be dealing more damage during the period of time that his Noxian Might is active. Now, Darius' W will slow you for a very long will, and is a pretty big damage buff to that 1 basic attack, so plan any {{champion:114}} {{champion:24}} {{champion:80}} {{champion:17}} auto attack avoidance mechanics for this time. Also feel free to either dash, or simple walk away if Darius has the move activated before being able to land it on you. As for his E, learn the range. If you are a range champion, keep that distance away and only venture close if Darius is busy (executing an auto attacking on something else, for example). If you do get pulled in, or are melee, its funny to note that being surrounded by your minions in the pull can actually cause Darius to accidentally W one of them instead, but don't rely on this. But on a serious note, when pulled, either dash immediately, or better yet, wait. Seriously, just wait. Hug him even. Most time he will pull and since it slows, he will land his W on you, so you will be slowed again and he will be able to land his Q with almost no difficulty. Stay close to him and you avoid wasting a dash until the slow drops, only take 50% damage when he Qs and leaves you with an escape for when he gets his Noian Might. Even if you tries to move to get you in the outer edge of the Q, just move with him and attack, or else, move away so that he actually helps you make more of a gap. Just check the situation when this occurs, as the slow may be too much to prevent him getting you in the Edge Zone, and a dash away would be better. As for items, Darius nowadays will always buy a {{item:3071}}. This means he will have a bit of bulk, damage, armor pen which he can stack pretty well, and a Movement speed steroid. Always consider the movement speed when thinking if he can chase you or if you can escape. As for the armor pen, this plus his passive on his E means you should try and invest into champions that benefit from health as well as armor. {{champion:36}} {{champion:57}} {{champion:98}} {{champion:223}} {{champion:8}} {{champion:106}} These champions above have a mixture of good poke as well as the ability to be effective for their team with the build up of health/armor/Magic resist, with the majority of them actually having better sustain than Darius. Moving on, many Darius players will buy {{item:3742}} which gives him a massive movement speed boost when built up. However, if he wastes, or uses the built up momentum, then he is back to simple slow walking towards you, so think about that. What you should be doing first is trying to keep him away from you (especially ranged champions). So building movement speed items like {{item:3153}} {{item:3046}} {{item:3285}} or even {{item:3742}} like Darius', as well as trying to slow him down with items like {{item:3022}} {{item:3116}} will really help you kite him. (**_Now I know I may have written a lot, so here is a picture of a Red Panda to break the reading_**) https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/be/Red_Panda_in_a_Gingko_tree.jpg Continuing, getting armor penetration yourself can also help against him, as well as good sources of life steal. But I will always say that self sustaining champions like the following work well (in my theory anyway). Many are simply stallers, sad to say. You won't be getting kills in your lane, you job is to keep Darius there, and make sure the rest of your team works together to apply pressure elsewhere. get your jungler to drop a ward or two near you so that you can be safe, but then let him focus on farming as well as babysitting the other two lanes. If you keep Darius in lane, he can't be a threat elsewhere. If you team is aware of the damage Darius can do, and he does leave lane, then you can apply pressure to the lane and possibly take a tower or two in his absence, while Darius fails at catching a well prepared Mid or Botlane. Anyway, the champions; {{champion:12}} - Ok, I know this lad doesn't appear much in the meta, but hear me out. With good amount of CC, a decent enough heal as well as a damage mitigating ultimate, Alistar is not a bad wall if done right. Knocking Darius up prevents him from slowing you after pulling you, and knocking him away when he pulls you can really screw up his Q swing. {{champion:79}} - With ranged poke, non situational sustain, and gap making/closing ultimate and most importantly, the ability to dash away from a grumpy Darius Q means that Gragas (well built as a *tank*, you AP idiots) shouldn't do too badly. {{champion:74}} - Ok, this lad isn't *really* a good pick, but if you really know how to play him (like, not standing in the place you want the enemy to be standing in) then he can really pester and punish the slow moving Darius. Just watch out where you walk if you go near him. {{champion:58}} - With 2 Dashes, a stun, a better healing Q and an oh-I-so-needed-that Health Giving ultimate, Renekton can also out last Darius due to the fact that he doesn't need mana. With good use of the Dashes (be careful not to waste them yourself) you can bait Darius' into starving himself of mana. The Old Croc is also one of the champions that can do well even when building off-tank + bruiser. Build {{item:3068}} first and that will help mitigate Q and W damage, as well as bleed, while still allowing you to deal damage. Now, there are more champions that I have not mentioned out there that can beat Darius, but the main things you need to remember are; - Health helps against Armor Pen and True Damage (when still paired with Armor.... you don't want him dealing psuedo-true damage to you!) - Range beats Darius (He is slow, and easily kited, especially when slowed) - Deny Darius' sustain with his Q (either stay close, or back off when the Q indicator appears) - Use Dashes wisely - Being the team staller is good - Watch out for his passive! (200 bonus AD incoming! D:) There, I can't think if I have missed anything big. I love playing Darius, I know he is strong, but I hate when people don't see the obvious counter. Riven has her dashes on top of her damage, but Darius just has to walk at you. {{champion:83}} (<------ You can theoretically do well against Darius with this guy, if you ghoul good)
Lets just go with the benchmark test. If teemo cant kill it. It needs a nerf.

: {{item:3116}} isn't a suitable option on AP Soraka. The Slow Effect is only applied to her **E: Equinox**, and not her **Q: Starcall**. {{item:3027}} is a better option as it provides more Health, more AP, and bonus Mana. {{item:3151}} is a better option as it provides MR Penetration and Health% Damage.
*facepalm* the video was a joke. It was more about the editing
Rioter Comments
: You must be building him wrong if it takes you 20 seconds to kill a bruiser. With full build it should take 4 - 8 seconds depending on how much health/MR the enemy has. And 1 - 3 seconds for an ADC/squishy.
Personally I have a range of Items I build depending on the toplaner/jungler But honestly Teemo top is dead
