League of Legends: The New Thread

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

I quit. Life is good. Game is literal ass. Everyone that plays is underage and refuses to listen to their team.

I did a self-evaluation and realized I began dropping off my peak in 2015 because by 2016, everyone realized talking to their team leads to being toxic and therefore banned, and the passive-aggressive meta started. League players have fragile egos and are no longer capable of winning games outside of laning phase. If given the opportunity, they would play a laning phase only game so they could say they did well, or finally have a game they "won" and be satisfied by the game. This behavior makes it harder to keep a team together in the midgame.

Back in 2011-2015, if someone on the team was shotcalling, regardless of what spats people were having with their team, they listened. A shotcaller was accepted as a team role and the team that had one would win the game. Now it's acceptable to say "I need farm", not group to the point of losing the game, which is probably intentional these days (if you do anything else, you get banned), because if you lose lane, you totally need to complete an item, since even if you outmacro the enemy team, there's no way you can win a 5v4 or whatever the fuck goes on in some peoples brains.

I miss old League. My mechanics are ass, but I used to be so good at macro.

I mean I don't necessarily disagree, but the way you phrased literally all of the above leads me to believe everyone else isn't the sole reason you're not enjoying the game anymore

Hate to break it to you, but "shot caller" has never been a role or a thing in solo q unless you were/are the super fed guy. No one listens to the 0/3 "macro genius"

The last thing I found enjoyable in League was playing Zyra, but she's legitimately not viable with Brand being a god tier support. The options are banning it or playing Soraka or Karma every game, maybe Morg, and I like Morg, but I half pick Morg to win lane, going for pick potential never ends well. Brand is a great ban, but then you miss out on Aatrox and Wukong, or at least you did, they were supposed to have been nerfed in a recent patch.

In my last games I was basically suiciding and 1v1ing everybody with Zyra because that's what the meta is. Regular League is basically URF. An arcade game. 30 minutes of your life per game is an arcade game. Not worth it.

Plainly not true. Shotcaller was a thing, and people would ask for someone to make calls if nobody was making any.

IMO, Aatrox is laughably not ban-worthy

I've ranked since early season 2 from lowest bronze to lowest Plat. I have something like 6000 games or more. Never once have I seen ANYONE EVER be a designated shot caller. I've seen "follow the fed guy" but never once have I seen a "macro player" do anything but feed ask why no one listens to them. Spoiler: cause they bad.

Thank you for your contribution to the discussion. I'd participate in dick waving with you, but I'm sure you'd just call my peak rank bad, because you're a troll.

Zyra is better than Brand in almost every elo rn - Brand is doing better in Bronze, but Zyra's doing great there, so it's not like it matters that much.

panzer's been doing this for years for some reason

if it helps any, I peaked higher than he did and I have absolutely seen/done that kind of shotcalling. It's true that nobody listens to you if your KDA is bad, but if you play enchanter supports, it turns out you pretty much only appear to have a bad KDA when you fuck up really bad. Nobody really cares if Nami's 0/3 as long as it's like 0/3/7 or something.

Dying even once on a support like Nami or Janna is awful. I had been doing it spades this season, but I used to be really hard on myself, and I remember rarely dying even once on Janna. That's what supports should strive for if they're backline, because that's how they will climb.

i too have never seen someone go "so who's the shotcaller now"

if anything it usually just falls to the jungler to ping stuff and make plays

and as a recovering jungle main, lemme tell you that 2011-2015 wasn't sunshine and rainbows for team collaboration
the amount of missed dragons or overextensions back then is p much the same way it is now
get to know a reckoner

it's time for the CHIVE to ARRIVE

pretty much this

I onetricked Janna to Plat season 4, and there's a lot of times its worth potentially trading your life to make plays happen

Yeah idk having to play against bruisers / mages bot just wasn't something I particularly felt like doing, and even in traditional lanes I wasn't enjoying the game anymore

I'm sure I'll get back to it at some point just for the sake of having the diamond border, although I've already decayed from d5 to plat 3 I think
