: %%%% you nubrac for bringing that trash "strategy" to multiple games.
Virtually all strats are hated by both the giving and receiving teams. Remember Sion Int? Remember Yi boosting? The community wasn't fond of either of those. Yet everyone was doing it, because it worked when done correctly. And there are always bans involved (I recall people getting banned particularly during the sion int strat). All I'm trying to say is that this is not the last strat you will ever see - they will forever exist - all you can do is ride the wave and learn to deal with it.

: why my play skills never get better
Your attitude is wrong, for a start: if you're not enjoying yourself, you're not going to flourish. This game isn't about fulfilling some false ideal. I would say: find something you really enjoy playing. If you can't, then play a different game.
: people in higher elos stopped banning him so often surprisingly people learned that he isn't as oppressive based on initial sentiment he is still pretty strong tho and i would like a nerf to his R that allows people to walk on the edge of his ult because currently getting to the edge is effectively a stun
Yup, I've had that happen to me...
: they override the matchup is stupid honestly kills happen in 1 rotation and who ever misses their abilities loses and if you are even who ever hits them first wins my advice is if you do get mirrored swap lanes otherwise you won't have fun
Sounds like a sensible approach :) I am waiting to play Morde actually until he's not constant pick or ban... (or 2x Morde in the case of blind pick).
: >B) I aggravate them even more by typing complete nonsense. "Oh sorry, did I miss a Blitzkrank hook? Well guess what? The hypotenuse is the longest side of a right-angled triangle." BUT THE MITOCHONDRIA
Hail the mitochondria!!! Buy two mitochondria, get one free.
: I need psychological help here
You have to remember that there are a lot of kids who play this game, who throw their toys out the pram when the game doesn't go their way and are inconsolable. Have you ever seen a little kid throwing a tantrum in a playground? This is no different. How many times have you seen your top laner going **'WTF GANK IDIOT JG'** at 8 mins into the game when they just died for the 2nd time, then proceed to afk or int? It is so common, cuz the game is full of immature kids and generally sad, pathetic people. Also don't forget, there is no minimum IQ to play League. And even intellectual people can have 0 common sense / have immature behavior / can just be assholes in general. Put all of that together and you get the amalgam that is the League community. --- Having played LoL for 4 years, I do 1 of 2 things, depending on my mood: A) I mute them the second they start spouting their BS. (Recommend this when jungling - top lane crying cuz they died to a gank at minute 5? MUTE.) B) I aggravate them even more by typing complete nonsense. **"Oh sorry, did I miss a Blitzkrank hook? Well guess what? The hypotenuse is the longest side of a right-angled triangle."**

: Hey Bench Press Cheers for the feedback man! I kinda see where you're coming from, as I think it's common knowledge for people who are plat+ I think the biggest motivation for me to make this guide was that I had low elo's not understanding how I personally could get to the point, where I was relevant in the game where they couldn't. I'm guessing it's because they didn't understand how to play pre-level 6 and maybe onwards, or a third or fourth course. So thinking back, this is probably mostly for people who are gold and under. Also your last point is actually pretty on point that closing game early and not go to lategame. Cheers for the feedback man!
: What to do when Mordekaiser ults you?
I have often been playing champs that I know can go toe-to-toe with him, or as a last resort, I just stall as much as I can - dance around him, dodge his abilities (unless you get hit by a Q you should be OK, assuming you start at full HP), Zhonya etc. I played Kayn into him very well - at first I just danced around him, then ulted him when I couldn't evade him any more. Once I turned Rhaast there was nothing he could do. Yi - well, he ulted me, but he still died during his ult (used my Q to dodge his Q, he was dead shortly after)... So it's not always a death sentence. Think the best thing is to just kite him and avoid fighting directly. Like, let's say your Darius - try to build your stacks and don't go mindlessly toe-to-toe with him, I'd be surprised if you died before his ult was over... or let's say you're Lulu, just run around, shield/ult yourself, whilst slowing him down as much as possible.. kite kite..

: DaPhamius | How to AP Malphite One Shot!
My feedback is that the guide is well put together, but it is also a little redundant. If you need a guide as to how to 1-shot as Malphite, you probably need a guide for breathing and blinking as well, as the difficulty level is about the same. The guide to One shot Malphite is as simple as this: Build AP, Ult a squishy and then faceroll your abilities before they hit the ground = dead squishy. Oh and don't feed your enemy laner. It really is as simple as that, no video needed. No offense intended. BTW, 1 useful thing you might actually want to mention is that you should try to close off the game before you get to late game, since they will start adapting to what your job is as AP malph which is very 1-dimensional.
: Riot, can you stop deleting my runepages and selected skins? Its 5th time in about a month.
I am one of those dudes who likes to have 12 rune pages, so that if I need to do any tweaking in lobby, it's just something minor (I've run out of time on too many occasions :P) So yes, I would also prefer it if Riot left my rune pages alone. In fact, I am not even sure why they are removing them in the first place... surely they have the ability to release a patch without removing my runes..? Bizarre that it doesn't happen to everyone, I figured it was universal.

I dont even think you're getting on their nerves because they are like that. You got any partners who are doing that by the way?
You're probably right. I did used to have a 'League friend' when I played on the NA server. He was a mid lane Anivia OTP. Used to rage really badly when he died (I would sometimes hear him smashing things on skype), and thought he was much superior to me and another guy (we used to play as 3) cuz he thought he was so good at playing his 1 champ. One day I just removed him from my friends list, after no discussion, just had enough of it. The reasoning was that I play League to have fun. No point playing League if I'm going to play it with people who will bring down my gaming experience - might as well do something else then. Honestly if this person is bringing down your gaming experience, I would stop playing with them. If they are IRL friends, then find something else to do with them, or tell them to stop being cucks. There are only so many options, so choose 1 :D but don't keep going without doing anything, is my suggestion.

: How do you handle friends who always know it better?
Start doing it to them. "Mmmm I wouldn't have E'd that." "Mmmm you should have thrown that hassagi into the raptors, could have finished him off" "Mmmm no I wouldn't have bought that item first". And then if they disagree with you say "Mmmmm yeah, no, yeah next time you should do things differently..."

: Fiora can block new Mordekaiser ultimate. This makes no sense whatsoever and should be revisited
{{champion:114}} I long for a worzee opponunt But yeah you can't really apply logic in LoL. I mean, Fiora kicks Malphite's ass, even though he is literally a rock. Pretty sure she can even riposte his ult, which also makes no sense, amusing though the idea of a swordsman parrying a flying mountain may be.
: "Better jungler wins." Question is: is it a bad thing? and how would you solve it?
**"Better jungler wins" **is not remotely true - it is simply an ignorant phrase used by the following groups of people: 1) The jungler on the winning team (toxic) 2) Any other member of the winning team (toxic) 3) Salty, flaming members of the losing team (toxic) They use the phrase as a form of catharsis, or in a self-aggrandizing sense. The only people who truly believe** "better jungler wins"** are people who have not played enough jungle to have experienced a match where one significantly outperforms the enemy jungler, getting himself and his teammates far ahead, whilst dumping on the enemy jg, only for 1 person (that's all it takes) to ruin the second half of the match. So as I said, the phrase stems from ignorance.

: It's ultimately up to you but I'd personally say to leave or play a bit less if you're not enjoying things, no matter how much time or money you've spent. Don't fall into the sunk-cost fallacy; a game is all about having fun and if that's not working then it's best to move on. I personally play the game much less at the moment and it allows me to still have fun without burning out but I always make a point of not investing any time or money into a game once I've stopped liking it.

: A doubtful penalty
In this person's Lux game they have more Kill Participation and more damage than the Vayne who died 15x compares to Lux' 20x. So either it's A) an unfair ban, or B) this person straight up inted deaths by running into enemies/turrets.
MIJ130 (EUNE)
: Please ban/report more toxic Egyptian players to send a clear message
I've only come across this once, where two players on my team somehow realized that a player on the other team also spoke the same language. And they quite literally spent the whole match more afk typing to each other than actually playing the game. Just standing there, typing. 'Woops I died - no worries, I need to finish my sentence'. Whole game. I almost got the feeling that they were **enjoying** talking in front of everyone, making a show of it. Have never seen anyone /all chat so much let alone in English. We also lost, largely due to the fact that 2 of our teammates were afk typing, while only 1 on the other team was doing the same. That's League for ya!
: were there any other indicator so you could tell ult is active or not?
Well it stayed the same whether the ult was on cooldown or ready to be used.

Oh yeah, I did forget that very important point: I can carry all games as long as my teammates (AKA Spies from Riot) don't hold me back. Also I only miss skillshots because of lag, not cuz I actually missed. {{sticker:sg-ezreal}}
: Can you show Swain some love Riot?
Swain definitely doesn't need a buff. He is actually quite well balanced. I play him Support with a lot of success. Also once you have RoA and Luden's you pack a big punch, and get a lot of healing from your ult.
: All skins available in the Practice tool?
I think Riot would lose more sales than those generated by adding this feature. There would be more cases of "hmmm yeah looks cool, but on second thought, I wouldn't spend my money on this" - the novelty would be lost as you're already able to get the feel of playing with the skin. There would be less cases of "Wow, this is just as awesome as I thought it would be, and I'm going to spend my money on this in order to have this cosmetic feature in PVP play" to offset it. Will never happen, as much as I'd like to try out every single skin. Besides, you can go on Skin Spotlights (Youtube) if you want to see how a skin looks in game. It's there to help you decide whether to open your wallet.
: Preach it! Don't forget that Match Making is broken, RIOT only cares about your money and I got banned for no reason!
: You forgot to curse, and to use broken english. Otherwise pretty much on point. Also, next time, cover the matchmaking issue too, maybe whine a bit about trolls or AFKs being ONLY on your team. Personal performance should reflect the LP gains/losses. The failure of the punishment system / or "false positive" cases. Maybe put a katarina revert thread in there somewhere too. And lastly, you can insert some delusional far fetched conspiracy theory, that riot matches paying customers with higher win-rate team-mates, hence making the whole ranked experience pay to win. Ok I'll stop now. Damn....the boards really went to shit, didn't it?
Lol indeed. So much source material from which to choose... :D
: yup thats what we call %%%%%ing and moaning 0 sum games always have this issue people don't complain about these things when they are playing a single player game even if they have the same issues
