: WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE AND WHAT IS WRONG WITH RANKED
This is clearly a person who is hardstuck and refuses to focus on their mistakes. It's best for you to simply play for yourself at this point, write down what you did wrong each game (whenever you died in most cases is easiest to see) and try to watch replays of yourself.
: WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE AND WHAT IS WRONG WITH RANKED
Everyone has bad games. However, it seems that Riot has it's matchmaking to be set a bit biased. For example, during promos you normally get opponents that are slightly better than you, I also noticed that you get losing sprees every other division if not every division as you climb and being higher MMR will obviously put you against players with similar MMR (meaning that if you don't belong in the bracket you're more likely to perform poorly). Then again, this might just be a biased view but matchmaking certainly has some issues that no one really discusses often.

: I feel that I am becoming toxic
I feel you man, have been stuck in gold for a while now (though I'm coming to the conclusion that I deserve it, and that is fine) but when you try to shot call the game, give advise and your team fails to listen it feels like flaming them would do more good than constantly typing 'please don't fight'. If you wish to climb and learn you must start ignoring the mistakes other people make and reflect on how you could have done better. If you don't wish to do that, you can always get some random friendly people and play normals/flex with them

Also i think the first promo games are for high silver. See, the problem with throwing an unranked player into a silver game is the fact that there will likely be a big level of difference. I remember when I first did my placements I got thrown into a mid/high silver game also, and to say the least we lost the game because I wasn't aware of all the different aspect of the game. I was very clearly below their level of skill. This is especially made worse during your promo games in which you often seem to get opponents a bit above average than your own team - so the unranked player would likely struggle more, may even be discouraged to play ranked. I think it would be fine if the player started off at around bronze elo and after winning a certain amount of games was moved up into low/mid silver and so on. This would be a bit eh with smurf accounts that are higher elo than gold though.

: Yeah, playing support can be quite depressing. I'm currently trying to get out of bronze on my other account Helgahuhn while playing solo in flex queue. The only advice I can give is to use both mutes with _extreme_ prejudice. ADC is ezreal, jhin, vayne, draven or a player has a weird name? => Mute chat and pings on game start. If it's ezreal, also block after the game, just to be safe... And don't expect anyone to know anything. Ever.

Those pings could normally be useful, I understand muting players but pings unless they have shown to be a troll is a bit of a risk. in low elo especially where many people lack basic map awareness it could save your life, or let you know when they're planning to back/engage.

didn't Riot also mention that the Solo rewards and Flex rewards will be different? Players that get gold+ in both receive some special reward or something? I can't remember exactly where I heard this from but conformation would be great.
Rismosch (EUW)
: What's up with Support these days?
This guy clearly struggles to take advice from players that have some decent advice. Instead he'd rather get tilted because he made a few mistakes (possibly and probably blamed them on his support) or had a hard laning phase. The support likely got fed up, or had a similar attitude and roamed away to help another lane which got this guy to tilt even more. In conclusion, he has a bad attitude most if not all games that has led him to make this post (in which people actually gave advice!) and carry on ranting about how bad supports are that don't protect him (even though stuff like Blitz really sturggles with peeling) when he possibly does something wrong. I am sure as players we can all relate to the tilt this guy is facing but we all should know that making a post about it on boards (especially when you have the attitude of blaming everyone but yourself) won't help, instead one should look for ways to improve and ways to win the game without flaming because something unexpected happened. Instead, you should go and try the support team who may be able to help you with what you're facing (though unlikely, they do reply with some nice stuff if you're lucky).

It's not only the Supports job, it's the teams job. Only the problem with you not muting is that you clearly reply and get yourself tilted and distracted. Your attitude is going to keep you from climbing/enjoying the game. If they leave you in lane alone, oh well. You stay at a turret and hope the jungler or someone else helps you, damn you could even roam! By replying to someone who is flaming you, or you are flaming yourself its unlikely you'll get much help from your team.
Rismosch (EUW)
: What's up with Support these days?
You get tilted easily, that's that. Gold is basically an elo where you play for yourself rather than your team most of the time. You can't really depend on anyone and must move on when a lane goes to shit. If you get tilted, you mute. /mute all exists for a reason. They ping? You mute. They try to surrender? You disagree. You push into late (if possible, play stuff that scales extremely well into late and has a strong impact), try to shot call if you can and take objectives. As an adc you can do much more than a support damage wise, though you will still depend on some peel. Try to duo if needed, other than that ask your team to ward (also please ward yourself, a support cannot keep the whole map alight with 3 wards and 1 control ward) and generally try to stay to the back of your team. If that doesn't work too well you could try to split push but do ward if you do so.
Rismosch (EUW)
: What's up with Support these days?
Support players get so much shit back that it can become tilting after a few game. Much like ADC players, we q up not being sure if we're going to get someone who can play the role, understands the lane and we can generally have a good relationship without any verbal communication (some ADC players seem to have play styles that one cannot match, are too aggressive and end up dying too much which makes it hard for a support to do much in most cases). It also depends on which support champion you play, and which champion you as an ADC plays. Playing something like Blitz can often mean that you're pointless when your adc gets attacked, sometimes you adc engages into fights they clearly cannot win (don't go into a 4/0 cait and her support just cause). Either way, it must seem like I'm blaming you - the point here is rather that there are so many factors affecting how your lane is going to turn out. Your best option is too take a break since your attitude seems pretty tilted, maybe watch some replays and see where things could have gone better (remember to share the blame with your support though) or even go play normals and write down the reason for your death every single time (all without blaming your support that much). That way, you may find where you're going wrong and why your support might be going wrong. Also, mute everyone in the game to help you focus. If they decide to go help another lane there's not much you can do but play it out and hope your jungler helps.

: New client is disgusting
My main issue with the client is that it becomes laggy for me after a long period of time. The sound in champ select becomes 'laggy' and 'broken' sound wise. Sometimes the client simply crashes during champ select (had this during promos, not nice). I think they would be better off gathering the feedback and seeing if they can implement fixes as it is probably likely that the client won't be touched too much after it's ''finished''
Belyosd (EUW)
: Why do I lose every ranked game?
Try to keep your KDA positive and usually in the 4/5.0 mark, when you're on killing sprees your deaths will give the enemy a decent amount of gold which they can use to gain damage or go tanky (whatever is useful). Focus on objectives and shot call your team towards them - League's main objective is to take down the enemy nexus and that's done through destroying the turrets/inhibs. Kills are simply a way to get to that goal. Ward if you push, ward any objectives - constantly ward. Don't chase after kills and don't force fights you cannot win. Generally try to keep your team from fighting if you're behind. Play a somewhat small pool of champions you're experienced with (preferably ones with good KDA and winrate of above 50% at 20+ games) After every death ask yourself why you died, if it is the same reason try to fix it by thinking of what you're doing (don't just blame your team mates!) You may find it useful to watch your replays if you cannot certainly pin point why you're dying or wish to reflect on games that you lost (I didn't study your match history as someone else probably would so some of these may not apply)
BIuePaw (EUW)
: There's a Lee Sin every single game for 2 entire seasons
My only problem with having a Lee every game is that they often end up being more of a problem than anything. Most Lees in silver/gold don't seem to understand the scaling of the champion or how to play around that, meaning that by late game they're practically running it down mid expecting to do damage (often ending up dying to a 1v5 with no damage dealt). Of course, it's usually a whole different story if the Lee is on the enemy team.
: Forcing somebody to take role what i cant play and then report him. I hate everyone who do that.
I used to be a really bad adc. Honestly, I would just let my support go in. However, with a decent support I was able to get some decent kills. The best tip I can give you is to force yourself out of your comfort zone, first by playing a support just so you can work with a partner you possibly have no connection with. Then you may as well just jump into to adc role.

Rayz019 (EUNE)
: Vel'koz
I personally want him as a support because most supports are ranged. I tried it out during free week a couple of months back and it was great. That being said I think people prefer supports that are seen more often such as Blitz, Sona and whatever not. Taking him mid can also be a bit of a gamble as most close ranged champs counter him (this obviously include Yasuo).
OzX (EUW)
: Everyone can deal damages so stop asking your carries to deal damages, do it yourself? OK I admit everyone should be warding but it still is the support that should do most of it. A support that doesn't have at least 2/3 DECENT wards on the map at all time is a failing support. So many times I ask my support to help me with vision and he 's like "got all wards placed duuh" Yeah thanks a lot for that ward in their Base it helps us a lot when we are 2 inhibs down.

Jungle and support should do most of the warding imo. The support should ward around their lane while the jungle wonders around a lot. That being said other lanes should also ward when they can. Two people warding constantly (and we're saying they're good at warding just for the sake of this) isn't going to give you the vision you may need because they most likely can only put a maximum of 4 wards down (this is if they have a sightstone). Now, one of those wards will probably go for a baron/drag so you vision suddenly becomes somewhat limited. Not to mention the fact that wards last up to 3 minutes unless it's a vision ward. Now, if they're bad at warding your team is in a worse position. I mean, chances are your vision will be more limited than ever. Should I even mention the people that don't place a single ward down the whole game?

: Snowdown Shop - my experience so far
I got 6 skins. That being said only three of the skins were for champions I play often (two skins for the same champion). The biggest discount is also for a skin no one would probably consider getting. I'm unhappy with that but I've seen some people got some decent skins.

For a come back you have to work as a team and chances are someone will act as the carry. That doesn't happen often in lower elo.

: I am the only who thinks that Lol is becoming more fun than dota each update ?
From what I have heard Dota has serious punishment for being behind (gold wise, I believe). There is also more skill involved with what one does. I really am not the one to compare the two as I was put off by Dota's use of colour.
: Even when you ping, it's like that function doesn't exist either.
I know what you mean. I recently got demoted from Silver5 to Bronze1 (and later 2). There was one game where pinging was completely ignored and I basically had to ask people to stop going off alone after enemies and look at the minimap once in a while. Pretty sure we lost the game because someone ended up split pushing and two of us noticed too late.
: Against Vayne? One of the ultimate 1v1 duelists? Well, you either pick Jax, the other ultimate duelist, deny Vayne her autoattacks so that she doesnt do anything. Or you delete her with a mage. Or an assassin. Vayne problem solved. Against Yasuo? Bully him from the start. Watch out for teammates that can wombo-combo with him. The real problem is the wall and the synergy with CC. Not the damage. Against Riven? She is at 43% winrate right now. Just pick a tanky guy. She will not win. There is counterplay to every champion. Some have it more apparent, some less. It is there though. If there was a champion with no counterplay, people would play him all the time *cough* Tryndamere *cough*
> Against Yasuo? Bully him from the start. Watch out for teammates that can wombo-combo with him. > The real problem is the wall and the synergy with CC. Not the damage. I've had so many games where the Yasuo was not fed and pretty much lost their lane but once the two items were finished he was a god. Now, unless you're some sort of god too (which I doubt you are most of the time) you're pretty much dead.
Fajerk (EUW)
: I have no experience with PBE or whatsoever so can't say much about that, however I do think that bugs that's are getting trough are ridiculous and it speaks for itself. With skins and stuff I' pretty much OK because honestly, everyone want's to know what's coming. About tribunal, I do not think that player based system will be better than system based on self learning machine, nor rewarding ppl in such system would do any good. Actually Riot is planning to reward players who behave good by in-game rewards and I totally approve move to that system . Last but not least, it's preseason and balance atm is non-existent, I hope that riot will take time to sort it out so I would not be harsh, atm it is hard to say what exactly is op, sometime it's synergy with mastery, sometimes item and could be both, hard to judge it.
I think it would be a good mix of players and a system working together. There are so many players who are told to kill themselves or insulted in a inappropriate way but the person who did it does not get punished. It is so unfair because that person goes on to insult a lot more players and ruin games. If the system cannot deal with a toxic player like that then we as players should have a say.

: To the people who complain about preseason changes...
Tbh people have a hard time getting adjusted to changes. A simple way to reduce the complaints is by introducing these changes slowly and not all at one. However, that would mean that some people may not look so critically at the game.
: My team and I turned a few games back. We were losing and then we just straight pushed mid lane to win.
I've had the same luck a few games. That being said these games included very few champions that were fed or simply had these great builds that would pretty much one hit you.
: That is not my point, Riot did a lot of things wrong, most things. But they did some things good. And they deserve appreciation for those. Even if it's just one little topic among all the negative ones.
But that is the point. The things they did right have more benefit to them. It's not for the players but more for themselves. The actual game > Skins/champions
Pokku (EUNE)
: At least you don't waste 40 minutes :)
At least a 40 minute game can change within the 40 mins. I used to find 40min games boring but after a while you realise that they teach you to get yourselves together (as a team) and work towards one main objective.
: Whatever you want to call them, my point still stands :P
Your point is that Riot has put in a lot of work into things that will make money for them. I am doubting that they will fix the many things people are complaining about. Yes, some of these people are complaining because change is hard. However, you also have the people that actually see huge flaws with this. I do not care how many skins they give me or how many new champs they release. It won't change the very short games that are decided in a few minutes, or the way more overpowered ADCs that can even kill a tank after one shot.
Stell (EUNE)
: i've managed to play 30min+ games, but they were pretty much decided like at 15minute mark already
By now you're lucky enough to get a game that ends at 30min+ I'm starting to miss those 50 min games that could change within moments tbh.
