: bot lane has less impact then 2 minion waves on top lane
I play AD carry, even though it is difficult. This is about correct teamfights: AD carries deal a lot of damage. It is not surprising, when I come out of a non-assassin lane and still deal less damage to champions during the whole game than some other champions. But I deal damage and I change the teamfight. When I am playing AD carry, after laning phase I have to be near team, because so many champions just wait for you in the bush to jump on AD carries. Morde just walks up, uses Morde ult or outpushes you, Jax jumps, Rengar 2hit-kills, Akali, Talon, Zed, Ekko, you get the picture. Surprisingly Sett is not that much of a problem. I have to be at least 2 kills ahead and have a good laning phase to have enough firepower, tier 2 boots and wards to solo split push. Back to teamfights: When the enemies know where I am, any teamfight has a chance that the enemy will focus on me, the squishy AD carry. I have to run estimated 70% of the teamfight time away, because during the fight I cannot communicate in solo queue. My own team does not register that I am almost dead until very late. The other team has a chance to be premades and play like as if they communicate "The AD carry is far away! We can be smart and not chase AD carry. Instead, let's pull the rest of the loser AD carry's team into our team and kill them off". The estimated, remaining 30% of my time in teamfight I do my burst damage. If the enemy damage dealers or CC initiatior is not dead by that time, my influence on the teamfight diminishes so greatly, that I can just focus on maximizing my survival-chance and wait for an opportunity to kill someone on low health. Enemies with low health can mostly only be killed effectively, if 1) they are in range 2) others do not body block your ulti (exception: {{champion:235}} ). AD carry do not have long range like mages to deal significant damage from the back line (exception {{champion:202}}, {{champion:21}} ult). AD carries lack tankiness to fight. If 1) there are 2 meelee champions who can walk up to AD carry or if 2) one of the enemies can set up a carry kill or if 3) the mage can 1 shot squishies, the AD carry needs to be really careful. I remember to have seen some very effective places where teamfights are optimal for AD carries, mostly in mid lane at the river, not in bottom lane. Also, I believe {{item:2419}} should be effective. The prospects of success are low though. AD carry rarely initiates, therefore AD carries are not choosing their best position. After using {{item:2419}} the positioning is so bad, that you need to use {{summoner:4}} to make sure to have a safe distance and make it easier to hit skills. Summarizing this: Either AD carry is really good at farming, or others change factors in the game. But the AD carry bonus definitely exists in teamfights. Just most of the time it is really hard to achieve it{{sticker:sg-zephyr}} Last but not least: Never choose botlane without being able to eat a loss. Duo queue botlane is so much better. You keep more motivated and you can reflect and improve with a much higher efficiency with your mistakes.

: “Trying to reconnect” Keeps spamming ingame
To me the counterpart frequently happens. In those cases I see a player disconnect and then reconnect again. I just ignore it ingame. Afterwards I feel a little bad. Is it my connection which makes other team players disconnect? Other possibilities are a cyberattack on the servers, or just an ridiculous high amount of connections overloading the network. Some of the intermediary gateways may not be able to cope with many connections. idk, I just play {{sticker:sg-lux-2}}

: POLL(VOTE): Toxicity vs Pointing Out Facts with Reasons
Opinions are okay. Saying it in a way to make someone look inferior is not okay, but with constructive opinions you can choose to engage in a similar productive discussion. Never attack others. Bad could mean a lot like atrocious, awful, lousy, poor, sad, inferior, gross. But it could also be neutral like unacceptable, imperfect. To improve saying just "bad" replace it with imperfect or unacceptable and give a reason.

Well done pointing out strong points of Fizz and special interactions. Just one thing: > **REASON №1 - Fizz's E.** ... > Why can't Riot just nerf Fizz's Q? Well, read the first reason. Reason 1 is all about E and then you connect it with the Q ability? Did you want to emphasize that Q cannot be nerfed alone?
: Remove this %%%%ing ekko garbage
Counters against the combo ult+dmg from the top of my head: {{champion:103}} {{champion:32}} {{champion:53}} {{champion:9}} {{champion:202}} {{champion:7}} cc him if he goes in and do not stand in his short range. He cannot use his ult if he is silenced or immobilized. I mean he has to be in meelee range at least after one e. It should be possible to catch him * when he rolls with his e skill, * when he is walking closer to proc e and passive and * After the proc if he used e and is unable to tumble and flash. Careful though, the proc gives him high movement speed. Also poke him slow with longer range spells or burst him quickly down. Ekko bets on fast burst because this allows him to heal the most by turning back time. Slow burn>burst. Otherwise you can buy items against the heal from ekko's ult{{summoner:14}}

The last S warwick I saw got two kills early by having good teammates. Another good warwick had his w + q or w + e up and killed after less farming. However he used them to get the kill is a mystery for me. After the kill you maybe stronger than enemy jungle. Do not gank lanes which are too far pushed to the enemy tower. Gank lanes, to make burn enemy flashes. Flash > your ulti. And make them flee in the right direction. I hope I could share a little insight.

Ward deep but not that deep in jungle so it takes you forever to walk over.

: Need reasons to keep on playing and new ways to somehow enjoy a Competative game
My suggestion: 1. Start being a really good person. Do it for one year, it will be hard. Do not play League during that time. 2. Work on something big. Project. Realize how small we all are. And realize how much we need to cooperate and communicate and how to communicate. 3. After one year play League. Apply everything you learned about being a better person. And apply to every player what you experienced of not putting a person down. You would also realize when a person just did not care about your match and yourself. Be the change.
: STRUGGLING PLEASE HELP
The Internet seems to agree on conditional NO, she cannot. Check the [link](https://www.quora.com/Is-there-a-way-to-play-League-of-Legends-on-Chromebook) I would say playing League would be possible, but I only looked at the CPU, RAM and harddrive memory. Then I compared it with the requirement for Windows 10. These machine specs are below average of the specs of common work stations. The choice to buy this samsung chromebook is probably for something else than playing League which may be a legitimate use case. I strongly suggest to buy something else to play League of Legends with at least 8 GB RAM and 100GB harddrive. 3 GHz dual-core processor is recommended by riot.

: Trollers going to other lanes
This is what a report button is for. It appears after game in the statistics. One thing in my mind is like the player knew all these skill interactions and seemed to purposely counter your choices. If this player does that often, he will eventually accumulate enough reports to be banned.

: 0% new-player friendly
But those are beginner mistakes to dive without being able to escape. You can't be mad at players who start like you. They do not have the great champion which is an ideal, because they may not know which champion is their ideal, yet. The morganas probably watched an advertisement or streamer, watched a few statistics and got lured in without knowing much about the game. Streamers do not tell you everything about the game and advertisement exist to generate interest in things. Also, if you play as if you had pre-knowledge, you will be matched with smurfs and experienced players. You would be really stupid to play easy games in which everyone does beginner mistakes. That means you are smart and they put stupid people in your game to check, if you are skilled. If you are smart you can decide how you use your time. And if you are skilled, smart and decide to keep playing, you eventually get promoted to something like "semi-pro" and would be matched against pros. League of Legends lives from that promoting success. The language in games unfortunately is not always the best, but these are people like you, a little emotional, have a little freetime, and they want to do something on their PC. You could get a girlfriend. And play League at the same time, it would give you an edge. {{sticker:sg-lux-2}} Also, when you are matched with better players, you can learn from them. Though because League has 147 champion, be ready for a loooooot of learning. And you may not even have the champions after a year. You are clever, so decide if you want to play. Or just take it easy, if you do not be like catch-them-all (all 147 champions), and learn how to win tomorrow in every situation. You lose in life, too and it's more important to stay in the game of life.
: Thanks for the insight. Can we see some more statistics like which lane was in lead in winning games or which lanes were carrying the games?

Can we see some more statistics like which lane was in lead in winning games or which lanes were carrying the games? The term in lead is broad. It could be a lead in gold, number of skills which cc, number of skills deal damage through pokes, or a lead in warding. Which lane "was" in lead can only be seen in live statistics and these currently do not exist. If you watched pro-games, those are a good place to start. The comments in the game cannot be taken seriously. It's funny. But the game analysis sometimes drop the word "lead" combined with jungle or lane lead. All these analytics have to be taken with a grain of salt. Plus the match date or patch of the game matters, as the game gets constantly balanced. If there is a big change in critical hit items, like the {{item:1018}}, the winrate in botlane may rise suddenly or it will fall of a little until everyone is accustomed to the changes. The same counts for every other lane. Considering this, the closest to the statistics would be something like a current patch win-rate statistic. Because that already exists on youtube in form of a top tierlist for the better players (I assume silver and better), I will just post a [**link for bronze ordered by role**](https://champion.gg/statistics/?league=bronze#?sortBy=role&order=ascend) for bronze-players. I believe it would be tedious to create yourself the statistics bronze-players to [get a graph about winrate of certain champions](https://imgur.com/UKFQzPX) and how often they are picked. You may not be able to decide which lane you want to play, but you can at least see how which champion you should choose and which champion is often picked and a serious thread. Because this started as a comparison between Bottom Lane and Jungle, I was curious about it and there was no statistic about this, so I made a [**table comparison**](https://imgur.com/1f2bnbF) from the current bronze player data. I would say it is very even. Here is the [spreadsheet for bronze players](https://filebin.net/vxh5jpz26d6vhzsb/championwinrate.xlsx?t=bws2e37s), I started. For the win-rate graph you can use my graph for ADC as template and arrange the data. For the other positions accumulated win-rate you can copy one of the "Helper" tables and fill them in with the raw data from the first table. Merry Christmas! {{sticker:sg-miss-fortune}}

Hello legacy dude, There is nothing to work with, if you do not write the age of your computer or notebook which you use to play. Some of your system's specifications are most likely part of the incompatibility between LoL and your system. You may as well decide that is private matter and get some help from someone close to you. If you decide to post data about your computer or notebook, it will help future readers with the same problem. As far as I remember I had a notebook which had similar symptoms for 6 games before it would not last even one game. Afterwards the notebook worked well for text editing and browsing the Internet. The following reasons why the game would suddenly not work are ordered in my opinion the most often to the rarest: - Graphic card overheating - CPU overheating - Error of the hard-drive (SSD) - Error in RAM If you have patience and agree to share info, please post your computer or notebook specifications either from your computer or notebook seller or from your computer's or notebook's specification look-up view. The age will give also some indication, if it is an overheat problem. Merry Christmas!
: Why can't better bot lane win games?

I am not talking about being 2/0 with 15 cs lead. I am talking like going 6/0+ and having big cs/exp lead over your enemy laner. After that point you should roam and try to spread your lead to other lanes. Provided your team isn't braindead and didn't feed their asses off, you should win more games than you lose and climb eventually. If you cannot do this, the games will become much more coinflip and junglers impact will increase as they can impact the entire map compared to the laners ability to impact only 1-2 lanes early-mid game. I would have used other words than stomping. In my opinion it depends on the champion match-up, increasing your gold and making the enemy lose gold is the more general term. A [**game in average**](https://www.leagueofgraphs.com/rankings/game-durations) takes over 24 minutes. I would believe that in a game in which "stomping" is common, the way to win would take much less time. At 15 minutes a team can give up, if they just talk about the currently leading champion and when the decision is made the champion is way ahead. But looking at the bronze games, which take in average 30 minutes it already hints that the team situation is even. Assuming most games are average, most games would end around 24 or 30 minutes when the skill level of the players is higher than bronze. These games are more common. It may be not fun, but drawing out the game or building up the lead slowly is more common. Just don't hesitate when to take a chance and reflect on mistakes to get better. Nice that this topic was brought up {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
: Just won against a team that had infernal soul & elder
First, congratulation you did your best in the teamfight. Thanks for recording this clip. I can see two reasons which lead to this win. One reason: The enemy team engaged too close to the tower, and was pulled into the tower, and perma stunned, making it 1 tower +4 players vs 5 player fight. Looking at enemy team, the only sane thing would have been {{champion:38}} {{champion:82}} {{champion:523}} pokes or {{champion:555}} {{champion:82}} hook or a {{champion:523}} cc . They did not do that and you did not overextend. The second reason you won: The enemy team engaged with the danger of getting caught by skill shots and was not dodging the many cc. Maybe the first two ensnares on enemy {{champion:245}} made the engage extra bad. I also saw enemy {{champion:245}}, aiming his cc far behind your tower and walking in front of everyone. He probably did not know {{champion:143}} was in the bush. That was a huge mistake in the communication, which is not surprising. In the replay Aphelios has seen Zyra going in the bush for a split second, meaning in the minimap Zyra could have been seen. One ward would have been enough to check the grass, but I never ward there, too. I may have face checked, but I am not sure about this. Something else, I noticed: They chased Udyr for about a minute before that. So in their mindset he was an issue, while it would have been enough to ward in which direction he went. That would have led to a smooth teamfight, and he would have been less of an issue.
: what is the best to level up to 30?
5v5 strategies against bots should exist already. But if you are as lazy as I am to look them up, here are my opinions: Get yourself a champion which can ensure the kill, you will get a few of them. Choices between {{champion:22}} , {{champion:103}} and {{champion:122}} , I would tend to {{champion:103}} at first because the cc gives her enough time to burst someone down. So there is only the condition to make her E hit instead of getting the items and build up through other means. After levelling up you may get choices which champion to choose. I did not like any of them, as they have different win conditions. The only one I agree with was {{champion:245}}. That champion unfortunately has a few more win conditions than Ahri. Use the burst of level 2 and level 6 effectively. With levelling up you get your own runepages. I guess asking someone to give you pointers is the fastest way to find a complementing rune page for your style, but it is only a short term achievement. The bots follow rules. Play normal in lane. When you start taking towers, stay aware where the bots are. They punish for overextending. Because they would use the shortest route to do that, they will go straight lines. So pay attention when you overextend and mind the numbers how many people come to you or are dead. If you are in a 2v1 match up against your odds, kite them and try to get as much distance as possible and go in a bush. This will help losing bots to follow you. Have fun!

I just mention that I am native Polish speaker and if you wanna learn or improve your Polish, go ahead we can exchange and I'll be really happy I can help you too. :) Hello Bambo, I am not a native English speaker, but maybe a hint is to not post in on the wrong board. Universities and libraries have physical boards to put up such requests for exchanging languages and culture. Exchange students travel from far for different reasons. All of them try to learn more than their major/subject and most of them are likely to take you up on your offer to share your language. Naturally they won't have a problem to share English, if you get lucky, and have a native English-speaking exchange student. Though going to meet and talk will also take some money and time. Another option is posting it on a better board in league or joining a voicechat-community. Your aspiration to learn a language may be reflected on the _**[discord channel which is advertised](https://boards.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/teams-clubs-tournaments-euw/RojIMqZK-eu-boards-discord-u)**_.

Reasons: 1. Athene's Unholy Grail has a passive which strengthens the heal when shielding and healing, when damage was dealt to champions by {{champion:235}} before. But more heal can always be countered, e.g. {{summoner:14}} or other items which lower healing. 2. The status boni give her more Q+R damage and Q heal and R shield, CDR for her long cooldowns, plus longer laning phase because she needs mana for poking like fishes need water for living. 3. About the second passive of {{item:3174}} is pointed out by a wiki "Athene's Unholy Grail, alongside a standard mage-support build of Remnant of the Watchers{{item:3092}} , Redemption {{item:3107}} and Ardent Censer{{item:3504}} , will grant a total of 350% base mana regen, making Dissonance give you a total of 70 ability power by itself." Theoretically, if she has {{item:3092}} , {{item:3107}}, {{item:3504}}, + {{item:1001}} + {{item:3174}}, she exactly has one more spot which opens up for either defensive play or more ability points.

The wiki says a lot about her passive which lowers her scaling with attack speed and critical hits (a lot). Other champions like common ADC and {{champion:157}} scale better with more AD because they can build attack speed and critical rate. I would say the passive of Senna which effectively makes her stronger over time and her lower scaling are big hints how she should be built. And her physical inability may be linked to her long prison stay ;). Greetings and much luck, brownfox

I think you could do better than you are at the moment. But if something is taking your mind off the game, you may have found something in your life to value. Stay with it and try to be competitive in game and in your life. Maybe it will give you a positive view about your "feeders" or the "winners". Here are a few quotes about changing yourself: > “Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.” — Albert Einstein > “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” — Ernest Hemingway > “If you want to change the world, start with yourself.” — Mahatma Gandhi
