    Never let that deter you. Everyone is terrible at this game; it's all about getting better having fun.

    I think Roz and I where discussing this the other day, As he had discussed it with Jun the other day as well. We are all terrible at this game. There are like 100 people who are any good at this game and none of us belong in that group.

    Yep. So here's the thing, I'm Plat and I am awful at this game. I see what people in Diamond can do to me, and I realize that I'm terrible. Even in Diamond, the difference in player quality between Diamond 5 and Diamond 1 is massive. A number of people in Diamond I and II, tell me that they think people in Diamond 5 are really bad. It's all relative.

    Look at streamers/pros - they are usually in Diamond 1 or Challenger. There's about 150-200 people in that group combined. That's something like .0001% of NA League's Player base. If those people are "good" then 99.999% of the player base are worse by comparison. Plat is roughly 2% or less of the player base and I can assure you that many people in Platinum are just plain bad (i'm one of them).

    Learning, improving, and having fun are more important than assigning yourself an abstract qualifier like "good" or "bad". Just work on getting better, be honest with yourself, and find weak areas in your game you can focus on. Other than that, the game's about having fun and enjoying yourself.

    Had a good ranked night winning most of my games. After a weird game against Chaox bot lane where his support Orianna didn't connect for 5 minutes and it ended up 33-6, I had two fun games I want to highlight. One with VMan and one against VMan:

    Ez+Nami vs Sivir+Lulu
    Cait+Janna vs Lucian+Thresh (Sick XxX MLG420NOSCOPE mUlTikiLlz aLeRt xXx)

    Less advice in these, more relaxing and having a good time in ranked.

    Watched a lot of that 2nd game, what's up with your jungler? Just throwin? I know you generally jungle right cause you have great Caitlin mechanics! That Janna was OP!

    Oh hey, they finally revealed why Lucian was delayed for so long
    Nothing too gamebreaking, except when we implemented Ardent Blaze's MS proc, 'Blucian' was the build we were testing. While that build still lives (No longer truly blue, just an AD + CDR build) - Spirit of the Elder Lizard's True Damage (That was applied by the W spell itself) was proccing the Mark, allowing him to just get insane MS at long range without having to follow-up which was pretty OP D:

    I'd put in a ticket. My powers out so I'm posting on my phone, but I had this problem recently (and also was having DC's during champ select and such) and it could be a lot of things, even you IPL settings (as they explained it me, it has something to do with the coding in the game being like a web page, and some weird shit can go on). My network connections is to slow to search for the email right now, but if I get my power back to go on my laptop ill copy and paste what they told me to do

    Have you checked out twitch? It's pathetic how many girls get viewers cause they wear a low cut shirt. Last night some girl was playing ARAM's and for every $5 tip would do a shot of rum. That's XXX cam tactics man, it makes me feel sad for my nerd kin.

    Yet some of these girls have 500 people watching them cause they have a low cut shirt on. Then you have fantasygodiva who's been banned and makes sounds/talks like a porn start half the time (usually has a lollipop talks about sucking) or kneecoleslaw who was a XXX girl but thought it'd be easier making money this way.

    Here's a funny video on the topic

    End of season 3 awards.

    Bronze - Icon
    Silver - Ward Skin
    Gold - Victorious Elise

    Rewards can be earned in any format of Ranked, because go fuck yourself Dominion, we don't care that Twisted Treeline is just as unbalanced.

    @Tommatt thanks, I'll give it a go. If dns can cause issues I wouldn't be the least bit surprised that was the culprit. Comcast dns is notoriously bad.

    Soon... soon I will install you, my precious.

    I think some people did ranked teams for Twisted Treeline last year, which apparently requires less Elo to get to Gold than Summoners Rift because of its smaller community.

    I just want to know if we will also be getting our new image borders once the season ends. I don't want to be unbordered anymore at the champ loading screen.
