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'm thinking maybe playing a lot more support is having an impact in how I ward.

That's still on the low end, honestly. The advice I put in the thread some time ago that everyone should be trying to have a control ward somewhere on the map as much as possible is still very much relevant. Now that I focus a lot more on ward patterns/locations/timings, it really dawned on me how much of a luxury it is to have teammates that are actively trying to help control vision on the map. Supports are supposed to be the single biggest factor in vision control for a lot of the game, but it's nearly impossible to have any effect when you're fighting a team that has two people actively sweeping away your wards and your team isn't helping with vision wards or giving you opportunities to clear wards in turn.

This game, we got snowballed against pretty early on and eventually got shut out.

Vision isn't the support's job, it's the support with help from everyone else's job.

So ocean week is happening for OCE.

And now all i can help but notice is that they decided to turn Ashe/Sejuani into black women, Fizz is a white female, and Poppy is an Asian.

Why is it that if they want diversity they couldn't just go the smart route to it and use the actual black characters?

I guess I should start maining top or something since adcs aren't going to be very practical nowadays. I personally don't get how jungling is easy, though, since you have to know when to farm and when to gank. Or am I overthinking it?

It's one of those situations where you have a lot of room to make decisions and have them drastically impact the game from very early on.
ADCs are in the spot where you need a very high level of skill to start having any impact at all... and even then it's less impact than other roles until later on in the game.

If you want "overthinking", look no further than this post

adcs are gonna come back in one or two patches. for now jgl then mid are the best roles to main. top if you are a strong early to mid champ works, but hyper scaling top laners aren't great atm.

Has this bug been happening to anyone else recently? I've noticed it a lot and was wondering If I was losing my mind or not

really enjoying the rend stacking change on kalista, it's like the hurricane trick in minions waves to get the reset but all the time.

looks like the issue is that he dashed through the knockup. Probs a broken interaction with the dash rather than a bug on the kick in general
