    u could try learning to play better, self-improve etc or... u could master all chat, and sow unhappiness and dissent in the enemy ranks all the way to challenger

    I start every Lilia game with 'Good Luck, Have Fawn'

    And have gotten multiple invade first bloods off of people too busy trying to type some variation of telling me to fuck myself back in all chat.

    If someone dodges after the last champ has been selected and there's less than 5 seconds on the countdown to game start, the dodge penalty should be tripled.

    I respect anyone's right to dodge if they're feeling bad.

    But also yes, the second this happens to me twice in a row and that absurdly loud 'GAME READY' chime/tone comes on I am tearing my hair out.

    <.< >.>

    if you wait until the last moment maybe someone else dodges instead, is the thing

    a couple days ago we got some shitty teammates who instead of asking to swap roles or anything, just banned our hovers and locked in troll picks to try to force a dodge, and we were like, ok we'll play this out, have fun being jax support for the next 30 minutes, and we felt pretty good when they dodged (at the very last moment) instead of us dodging

    I’m really not sure why the game is allowed to start if one person on both teams doesn’t have smite. It’s just an automatic L.

    At least let us just ff instantly, I’ll take the loss, we’re going to lose eventually please just spare me the pain.

    This actually happened in the LPL a week or two ago. Kid got fined by his team for that goof.

    5 soloQ losses later, including 2 games in a row where my support straightup abandons me for all of lane after they make just awful plays level 1 and die, now I'm not sure if flex queue is more toxic than soloQ. Although there is something in flex where people queued with their friends are just really mean together sometimes :(

    I think I might end up in jungle for ranked just because I’m tired of getting people that look like they’ve literally never played jungle before. Eve the level 5 gank on a draven, not smart. K6 ganking the mf sera bot lane slammed into tower is a lot smarter than the kench top.

    Truly painful losses, then I stomped on lillia. Idk, frustrating.

    The jungle is a lot of fun! It's very deep, there's a ton of champ options and variety. You have very direct and meaningful impact on games. But you will get flamed, HARD. 0-5 top laner diving his opponent and dying? WHY NO GANKS!!

    You have to liberally use mute button and have thick skin.

    Oh yea I know I’ve been playing basically exclusively jungle in normals. I like it a lot but yea I turned chat off ages ago and will revoke ping privileges without a thought. I think I’m pretty significantly better at bot lane but the junglers I’ve gotten in ranked have been so awful as to give up and make me do it myself.

    Honestly winrate isn’t much better, but I’m less frustrated.

    people who bm in the enemy base should all be banned from league. literally lost a ranked game because our nasus tped onto minions and danced, got killed, and then we lost 10 minutes later. they had a level 18 kayle who was alive. literally ban these people.

    ugh. got to my gold promos and instantly lost 5 games in a row.

    i am become suffering. i think i only ever had a lead in one of them. all the solo laners just cannot stop getting solo killed for nothing. just not sure what i'm supposed to do at some point.

    Path more aggressively if this is from the jungle perspective. Skip the quadrant to go win the stupidly volatile lane for the guy who can’t chill till the usual gank window.

    It’s something I’m really bad at partly due to my champ pool and partly because I like just out macroing the other jungler but sometimes you gotta embrace the fiesta.

    yea this is the longest string of sustained toxicity and trolling i've seen in quite some time. i bounced off the top of silver 1 a second time like 90 lp instead of promos this time, but just like, people literally running it down because one 3 minute fight didn't go exactly the way they wanted, or people running it down because they got an assist instead of a kill, or just dancing top lane for 10 minutes just because of some percieved slight spamming that they're gold 4 so they don't care about the game and they're keeping the trash in silver. idk man this is by far the worst league experience of my life.

    now my mmr is totally fucked and i'm barely getting any lp, honestly i think i might just be done with ranked this season and take silver 1, because i'm having such little fun that it's almost torture.

    I was having a rough go of ADC players so my best friend swapped to bot for a game.

    After the game he said “I have no respect for ADC players….how can they not get fed with your Tahm Kench?”

    Really made my day it did.

    2 more ranked games, 2 more people tilting pre-15 even with hyperscaling comps. like, i've lost 13 of my last 16 ranked games and i think i had a lead in one of the losses, every single game is an absolute fucking shitfest full of toxic assholes.

    i can count on one hand a time when my solo lanes didn't go 0/5.

    lmao, play another game, our jg dcs at 3 minutes. like, i just have no chance in any game i play and i'm just losing lp and mmr constantly.

    The boundary between silver and gold is so fucking toxic

    And I feel like the world is collectively losing its mind again over COVID and it is showing up in the level of mental available in games (i.e. none; there is no mental resilience on display)

    I've had some real frustrating solo lanes are 0/5 games recently and I just have to keep in mind that sometimes it's their solo lanes. Like tbh after the awful tilter I posted above, I played a game where I soft inted my lane as Ashe/Yuumi (I hate playing with Yuumi) into Caitlyn/Nautilus, just couldn't stand out of the hook, also so behind in cs due to getting zoned --but because I didn't hard int, and fired my ult in a vaguely helpful way, I got carried by my other lanes. ...also I think I preemptively muted everyone just in case they said mean things to me.

    So basically, you just play until either you demote so far that you start carrying, or until RNG grants you afks on the other team for once

    Who would win? 200 years of riot's top game design or a kit so out dated it has unique interactions and isn't meant to jungle?

    https://blitz.gg/lol/match/euw1/Quinn and Valet/5416373416

    Quinn continues to be stupid, honestly if you're stressed and want a dumb pick then learning Quinn is probably a good idea.

    i have lost 13 ranked games in a row. every single game my midlaner gets solo killed 8 times by the other mid.

    i am disassociating from fucking reality dude. gold promos to silver 2 with literally no wins.

    last 2 games i was literally the only person positive on my team, like i do well, but i just can't carry everyone, it's so fucking hard.

    I know mid isn't your main but has your elo dipped low enough for you to be able to carry from mid? I feel like there's a certain elo band for me (like...all of silver tbh....) where even though I'm definitely worse at mid than ADC, I can only reliably carry as mid, because as mid I can, 1v1, walk down to botlane and get them ahead, and contribute to all the dumb river skirmishes (and/or tactically not contribute if they are definitely lost, but better me not contribute than some hypothetical would-be mid int for it).

    Might be worth a shot/better than just tilting off the face of the planet (which is reasonable tbh, that's a tilting streak for sure)

    Steam, LoL: credeiki
  • Knight_Knight_ Dead Dead Dead Registered User regular
    i mean i'm taking breaks so it's not that tilting, it's more extremely frustrating that i just don't even get to have a shot.

    finally won a game except it feels like i was meant for the other team, they had top lane samira and bot lane galio/soraka and just got absolutely buzzsawed. that has been the sort of game i've been getting except i've been on the other side every single time haha.

    i had switched to jungle because yea bot lane just felt hopeless and i was tired of my junglers running it down in my lane or never going for objectives. my jungle poppy and lillia have been pretty good in normals, but while poppy was still decent, my 57% wr lillia is like 30% in ranked, not really sure why if i'm being honest. i haven't played mid at all this season though, i really didn't like what was meta and was so horrible to deal with irelia and yasuo and zed and shit that i just abandoned it entirely.

    i like playing lux and shit and she's just not really a good pick right now. my annie was okish but at the end of the day i just get so frustrated dealing with giga dashing fuckers who never stop moving that i end up making bad plays just because of the mental fatigue of being in lane with them.

    I feel like Lux is still very strong, but I only play her in like silver 2 flex queue so the games are of really questionable quality, and I’m wayyyy better at Lux than any other midlaner, and as such my opinion/feel is suspect

    Anecdotally, you can carry pretty hard tho

  • Knight_Knight_ Dead Dead Dead Registered User regular
    my lux isn't particularly good, i just had fun playing her. if you look at my champion pool of like, jinx kog maw (trying to make vayne happen) poppy lillia you will notice a tremendous lack of skillshots. i am absolutely shit at skillshots, which is why i would play annie a lot as well.

    Ah yeah that makes sense

    If you look at me instead playing Sivir/Jhin/Caitlyn/(Zyra/Morgana/Karma) if there’s one thing I am practiced at it’s a very wide straight line skillshot heh

    Although all the lane pressure as Lux comes from E+AA (when I play her anyway), and the Q is only for when I start looking for kills or need to defend myself

    …I do also sometimes try to make Vayne happen but it’s not clear if this is because I really want to become good at Vayne or because I have a lot of skins for her or because I am trolling @LoserForHireX in games where he thinks maybe I’m going to carry from adc but then: Vayne

    2 of my last 3 games someone has quit before 15 minutes. my last game i was 5/1/3 on jinx bot lane, absolutely shredding, but because our midlaner had no mental he quit 1/3/1 even though he was up in cs. on ryze, a hyperscaling champ and we got split to death.

    every. single. game. i get this shit. and down the lp goes.

    edit: haha, next game i was 6/1/3 kogmaw, utterly destroying them, and our midlaner tries to ff and runs it down a bit because he's losing lane. i said to my duo i literally will quit ranked forever if we lose this game. thankfully we won but jesus christ.

    Yeah part of what I like about normals after grinding to Gold IV is that people have far less of the 'if I'm not carrying the game isn't carriable!' mental breaks.

    Like this match started with me down real bad and Poppy running over us.

    And the teams just like, chill, plays safe around Poppy and waits for the inevitable over extend and shutdowns to snowball off of.

    I started enjoying the game a lot more when I stopped playing ranked. Even the occasional troll game just becomes a "what the hell was that, oh well" thing. Like one I had a week or two ago with a mid Yuumi. Who ran Smite. And just attached herself to our top Aatrox. And then neither of them ever went to lane.

    This is basically me but for ARAM only and some of the special game modes. And if a game lasts longer than 20 minutes it is probably a good tightly contested back and forth game.

    I spent an embarassingly high number of games in gold this season and I will say that while the game is technically harder in plat, the game quality is so much better than high silver/low gold.

    The only time I really queue for ranked is when I get 2 or more batshit comps in a row playing normals and I feel like playing a “normal” game where everybody at least attempts to pick a role
