I hope I'm not being paranoid here :) Not a thing. It's been explicitly mentioned numerous times that this is a terrible idea - "Prisoner Island" results in breeding toxicity and a bad game experience - it neither encourages reform nor gives any positive impact. If you feel like you're being matched purely with toxic players, this sounds like either a psychological thing (you see what you think/want to see) - or terribly bad luck.
Or you are in Diamond 5. Haven't seen a game without toxic people for a long time up there.
: From what I have heard, the um.. 'learning curve' between D5 and higher Dia is pretty significant. So it takes longer time to grind there. On top of all, there are many players being boosted to D5... Another one could be the mentality that the player is finally Diamond and it is 'high elo' that their ego grows and forgets to keep a good attitude. In S5. I was hard stuck D5, basically D5 the whole season. Start D5, end in D5... And I played well over 1k games... S6 I finally managed to get D4, and D3. And now I'm D2. So... all in all, I had to play tons of games to get good enough getting out of D5. Have patience. :)
It's been since S5 too, hehe. But in S5, it didn't feel as bad as it is right now. It feels like it went way downhill those last times.

: you can't deny she feels really unfair in lane, she just spam Q and heal her ADC. When playing a poke support, you just can't win, she'll just outsustain you no matter what you do. She should have a little more counter play in the early game, if you play soraka and the ennemy supp isn't good at engaging, you basicaly won the lane.
Sustain counters poke, poke counters hard engage, hard engage counters sustain. There, done. I think a Nami is much more of a threat if you play them side by side, quite honestly. Her main role is healing, so just leave her at least the possibility to do so.

: Nerf Soraka Please
Learn to counter her or keep on being bad : I love when people rage saying Raka is OP, when in fact she's actually hard counter by two common items, and one summoner spell. I'm going to let you guess which. Most of the time her heals are so underwhelming mid game because of this...

You are. Zil's ult doesn't give a full revive but has a fixed amount of health it gives back on resurrect. Mana is untouched.

: First of all, good job :) great work helping the beginner support players this way. I have only 2 suggestions: 1. I also main support since S2 and therefor understand what you are saying without video examples. Some beginners may need video examples along with your explanation. 2. For me most of what you said was easy to follow, however when the sentences become longer you have the tendency to start speaking faster. Because of your accent this can make it hard to follow what you are saying. All in all, great work :)
Thank you a lot for the review ! As I said, this was more of an intro test video, I am going to put much more work on the future ones, explaining the notions with more depth and exemples. As for the speed of speech, it was maybe more because I edited the video before adding the voices, and some parts proved themselves to be quite tricky. I ain't going to make this mistake again. Once again, thanks a lot, this means much to me !

: WEST Plat 3+ ADC Looking for a good support to DuoQ
Hey you, my name is Solomai, 22, from France, I play support on a daily basis, can run almost everyone. I play around high plat level, going up and down cause of teams unable to capitalize on objectives. And I'd like to play with someone those times, so... Yeah ! Add me IG, Solomai !

: good post {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}} Good Luck for that m8!
Thanks ! Oh, and by the way, it's funny, we have the exact same champion pool. Supports and long range mages for the win ! :D (and Ekko.)

: Plat Support looking for a nice ranked team !
Beedle (EUW)
: EXL is looking for a dedicated support (Gold 2+)
Here I am ! Name : Solomai Age : 21 SoloQ Rating : Plat IV (ended up Plat I season 5, made the mistake of trying too hard during the first preseason days !) Main Champions : Vel'Koz (yeah I know), Thresh (still have to work on it tho), Zilean, Braum, and a lot more depending basically on my mood. Experience in 5's : Not lots, I created/joined a lot of teams, had quite a good number of victories (never ended up placed in Silver, only Gold, which is not too bad). But almost every one of em ended up breaking due to inactivity/schedule problems, etc. Why me ? Cause I'm awesome. Hm. I have a good support mindset (I can basically sacrifice myself for the greater good in a teamfight, or to save someone more valuable than me), I love warding (!!) (I always have 3 or 4 wards on the map), I want to improve... I'm playing since season 1, and still enjoying the game. I'd also really like to play in a 5v5 environment, it's been a very long time now. My biggest flaw is being a bit too much of an all-in guy. Sometimes it's good, but sometimes it's really, really wrong. That's it for me ! Cya on the Rift ! :D

: The fun is out of the game in my opinion
I played ranked the last two days. And never going in again before changes are made. Games are boring, too fast, and when someone snowballs the game is done in minutes. It's just completely unfun.

: Well i play lot of tanky supp (leo/tahm/taric/shen) and, at the moment, i didn't find any real issue (didn't face graves yet - strange). As Apish supp i do play lot of Karma and (even if i didn't used her a lot in those days) i didn't see anything that concerne me. Ofc in my elo (silver/gold) mistakes are more forgivable. I have the same problem you have with masteries... while i find a lot of keystone interesting as tanky supp, i can't decide what's better as an ap... i'm forced to pick things that doesn't really suits my style. Guess i'll figure it out sooner or later. Vision is my n1 (and only actual problem) with this patch. I used to have so many wards... now i always find myself looking at a black minimap, hoping to spot the jungler near a lane to guess where he is. I'm actually thinking to take TP as summoner cause sighstone gets empty so fast and yellow trinket is so sloooooooooow to reload. Anyway I'm pretty positive... every season (and every change) is a bit disappointing cause it gets you out of your comfort-zone. Do you remember when supp gold income was improved like crazy and they introduced the sightstone? well some of us... even Sawy, if i'm not wrong, had to moan about how the supp role was ruined by too many midlaner played as supp, and ward limit disrupted they way of roaming warding up the whole map. So, it's just a matter of getting used too, they'll tweak something and all we'll be for the good. See ya! ^^

Being myself an off-meta enthusiast (you could guess it), I warmly welcomed this change when it happened. It was hard to handle at first, and I remember having problems with vision. But it rapidly ended up being the best patch ever for my playstyle ! Now, I just feel like supporting is just about being behind the ADC, correcting his mistakes, and warding. Not the botlane playmaker, vision master that it was like before.

: I dont say you are wrong, or that it is bad, just that these are no real Supports, like Thresh, Leona, etc.
This is why I am talking about "Offensive" and not "Defensive" or "Tanky" supports. They are not supports in the first place, but they're widely played there, and it is not something to argue about. Now, I'm asking about these "off meta" supports in particular, who are doing well there even with a status of mage, and their future in the game. This is my concern.

: Too long for me, so i didnt read, but: > my main is Vel'Koz, I play some Xerath, Lux, long ranged mages in general These are no Supps, they can be good as a helper in Lane with Dmg and some CC, but no real Supps.

Don't take the time to answer if you don't understand what it is about. I can also count Zyra and Brand in this. They're not supports, but right now they're more played there than anywhere else.

: Sick of soloQ ? Want to have fun while going up the ladder ? Me too !
Update ! After a while our top and midlane decided to leave us. It was somewhat logical, no weird stuff behind this. Now, of course, I need those two roles to be filled, so... Nice people, come out, come out, wherever you are ! Just to clarify things, I like winning, I actually prefer winning (is that possible ? :o), but I prefer having fun. It would be nice if it was also a priority for you. See you soon on the Rift ! Solomai

Depends, flavour of the day. I hope you like surprises. I am Plat V atm, trying to go up. Last season... Wuw. I didn't really play that much in last season nor this one, just starting out the competitive stuff. Right now, a lot. Like, more than 20 hours. Hope it will not stay this way for long, but heh :D YES. Like really interrested ! Main player of course. I don't like to be the cool sidekick guy ! You too, have a nice day, and see you on the rift ! PS : I will be fully available at around 18-18.30 tonight :) (But feel free to add me right now, I come from time to time on the chat)
