: Not quite, usually when ppl refer to elo hell they mean a certain group of possible matchmakings that leave you with no possible chance of ever consistently winning games. And the critical word in that sentence is ever. In "Elo-hell", you would always be at a disadvantage because your teammates are so impossibly bad you cannot carry them regardless of your performance. In the scenario I described the person underperforming would usually be urself. Also, unlike Elo hell that state isnt permanent, since a) just waiting a couple of hours/days to "untilt" would already greatly improve your situation and b) only 2 or 3 wins would stabilize your mmr enough such that the effect would be rendered moot and you would then be matched with but also AGAINST players that are worse than you, which means it should theoretically be easier for you to climb back to where you were before.
>only 2 or 3 wins would stabilize your mmr enough such that the effect would be rendered moot I was with you up until this point. In games that use the ELO system (chess for example) where the ELO/MMR isn't kept secret from you, it takes a long time to increase your elo once it has been tanked. Unless you chose to play against higher ranked opponents (which riot's system doesn't do) your elo increase is quite marginal for a win unless you go on a long win streak. Of course, we have no idea how Riot calculates MMR. They presumably don't follow the original ELO system and do some other calculations in there; that is why they won't let us know it.
: Honestly, its just a psychological thing mostly. There may be the slightest tweaks in the matchmaking algorithm, but nothing that would actually affect you unfairly. But when u start losing, you will often start to become more negative about your team and your own gameplay, fbe more prone to making mistakes and so on and so on. There is admittedly one little thing about losing streaks that makes it harder to end them the longer they go: The more games u lose in succession, the more will your mmr drop, and subsequently so will the mmr of ur teammates. So eventually you will be matched with teammates who are struggling just as much as you are, which makes it harder to win the game than it would normally be.
>The more games u lose in succession, the more will your mmr drop, and subsequently so will the mmr of ur teammates. So eventually you will be matched with teammates who are struggling just as much as you are, which makes it harder to win the game than it would normally be. This is bascially the definition of elo hell.

: Vel koz support
He is as squishy af, so play around his cooldowns. he also is quite mana hungry so bait out his abilities in the early game and punish him when he gets low on mana. That is the only advice I can offer. I have played him a few times and the players that have given me a hard time are those that have done this. I am sure that wiser and more experienced players will come along and help you.

: How to report toxic behaviour?
Hi, Did you use the report system in the post-game lobby? If so, then you need do no more. This will trigger an investigation by an automated system within the game. If the player has breached the rules then a punishment will be issued to that player. You don't need to send a support ticket as well. Hope that helps.

: Ranked Anxiety
I have this too but it is easing off a little bit now as I play more games. For a long time I stopped playing ranked because of it. I think that it is so easy to get sucked into the hype of "Gotta climb!" that the fear of losing becomes quite debilitating. Like I said, it is getting better as I play more ranked games. Good luck

GLurch (EUW)
: As long as there was no other way to stop that person from robbing you, it is okay and allowed. However, flaming a troll will not help or defend you in any way, there is no way to defend against it. You can only 'report it to the police' after the game and I think it will take a lot of time till there is a way to defend against trolls, without the possibility to abuse that way of defense.
Blokies (EUW)
: Extranote: queues take longer woth autofill because a lot of people dodge when they get autofilled!
yes, you might be right. I would like to know how the time taken to get into a game has changed since last season. Sure, you might get matched quicker but having to go through picks and bans 4 or 5 times has got to be longer?
: Why can't we flame trolls who ruin the game purposely?
Stop being such a snowflake! So, you got trolls in your game? Well, everyone has them...it's not personal. You don't have to have a tantrum about it.
Shiwah (EUW)
: This question is akin to: why can we not beat with a baseball bat the burglar that just robbed us? What do you say?
In the UK, there is provision in law that allows you to use "reasonable force" to protect yourself or your property. So, you would be ok in using the baseball bat if it was justified. But there would have to be a trial to establish whether that force was justified or not. In this video game, there is no such provision. There is a zero tolerance rule to flaming. Context does not matter.
: Let us know your most heroic Galio play!
Nice post. I don't yet have any heroic tales to tell but I am ever hopeful that there will be some soon. I love this champion. He is so much fun. Playing him as support is just great. He got that poke, sheild, taunt, peel, disengage...he's awesome!
: Why can't we flame trolls who ruin the game purposely?
Because shouting at them will not make them stop; it might even encourage them to troll you even more. If you want to vent...shout at your screen instead. It won't make them stop, but it won't encourage them to troll you even more. Remember that trolls want your attention, they want you to rage at them. Don't give them the satisfaction of knowing that they have tilted you.

: aaaaah, you're probably right. I forgot to think about the death timers....
I suppose, if you were a really determined Inter, then you could go to the nearest jungle camps and get killed there. That might save a few seconds. I am now quite curious to know what is the shortest period of time that you could die 16 times :)
: it is.
How??? I just tried this out. I went into the practice tool and just ran down mid over and over. I managed to get killed 9 times in 8 minutes. If I had taken TP then maybe I could have squeezed in another 1 or 2 deaths. so, I am not sure that it is possible to do this even if you are inting.
: Supports, please....
I don't think that this is all supports tbh. I wouldn't expect my ADC to save me unless it was safe for him to do so. If I die, and the ADC gets away as a result, I am cool with it. I think that you are using one specific situation as an example; I don't think that this is that common, is it?

Oooh, touched a nerve did I? ;) Ok, then...I will answer your question. Play the ranked game and take whatever it gives you. If you are getting your info on predicted rank from OP.GG and it's your first ever placements, then I found it to be quite accurate. But that was last season, everything seems to be different this season. It seems that the more ranked games you get under your belt, the better. So, you may as well start racking them up now. Good luck with 10 of 10.

: I actually have been forced to mute pings, but not the chat. I can ignore the chat, if I need too. But the people that spam ping are actually more of a risk. peopel do not use pings the way they are intended. People will spam Warn you when there's no threat, which causes me to mvoe back and play passive only to find they're pinging 'cause they got ganked and wanted me to TP in. Meaning not only did they still die, but the tower I may have been able to push is still up because I had to step back and play passive to check if I was in danger. Next up the missing ping. Not sure anyone knows what it's actually for, as people just use it to spam ping something they don't understand. Pings used wrong are dangerous, as well as really bloody annoying. So, despite them being a really useful tool, the community have ruined it for me.
i actually think that pings should have a bit of a rework. Maybe have it that you can only ping twice in quick succession before it goes on cooldown for a short while; not long just long enough to stop spamming it. Or maybe you can only issue a certain number of pings per minute. Idk, just now it seems like just another way for toxic players to piss you off. Or...just make it possible for you to mute pings from certain players.
Hatss (EUW)
: Why using /MuteAll is bad
> I still wanted to congratulate the Yasuo top for beating Garen, and so I did three ‘assistance’ pings each time he or one of my team got a kill. It lead to roaming, teleports, and backs when they weren’t needed. I couldn’t even say GGWP when the enemy team (who you could tell had communication) secured the win. I think that you can still type in chat even if you have muted that player.

No, I am not purposely confusing the 2 things. He is attributing one to the other. He clearly states "this stupid sh it soloQ"; therefore saying that the negative behaviour is a consequence of soloQ. Last season, there were many people shouting for SoloQ to come back for the reason that you gave. Now it is back, people are complaining that it increases toxicity. Which is something that a lot of us said would happen. Bottom line is that, it is not the type of queue that makes people toxic or troll, it is the people themselves. But it is easier just to blame the company, right?

No, I don't think that they should dumb-down the game just because some people occasionally forgets (or are too stupid) to check their runes and masteries.
: To people who complain about autofill
What does this have to do with autofill? Some support champions have high damage stats at the end of the game (_points to zyra_), that doesn't mean that they weren't supporting the team.

I don't think that you should blame Riot for giving the community what they wanted.
jonisen22 (EUW)
: new galio feels crazy broken :O
I don't think that his early damage is that bad tbh. You can avoid a lot of his Q damage by dodging or walking out of the sphere/whirlwind thing. As Celestina said, they will probably give him a bit of tuning in the next couple of patches. He is certainly not OP or Broken imo.

If you send a ticket to support and explain your situation, I am sure that Riot will place you in Challenjour, where you truly belong. Good luck.
: How do I get out of bronze ?
You may be better than your teammates but not enough to overcome their deficiencies. People do climb out of Bronze but they only do so because they are significantly better than the rest of their team (and opponents) and can carry the game. So, being better than them is not enough...you have to be a lot better than them. Keep practicing and trying to help your team as much as possible, that way you will climb. Until then, enjoy elo hell :)

: Lantern fear, I love it. Also up the lantern damage! Body blocking does not work the way you make it sound. It's not a bug that you click on the champion instead of the lantern. When something is on the lantern, it won't work. You can even nail it to the ground with a ward. the counterplay to that is to throw the lantern where your teammates are going, not where they are
>You can even nail it to the ground with a ward. Really? That is hilarious :)
Ârzo (EUW)
: Can someone explain me this situation with the MMR?
Where are you getting your 'MMR' from? If it is OP.GG, remember that is only an estimate and is apparently quite inaccurate. Only Riot knows your MMR and they don't want us to know what it is, for some strange reason.
