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.

dude i think people put too much stock in winrate and not enough in critical thinking

i have a roommate who literally sometimes just picks the champion.gg counter to champs and then goes the exact build with the highest winrate... even if they've played that champ like twice

i mean its usually OK because they aren't bad at the game... its just that it annoys me how brainless this game is sometimes

i think its generally established that people who are good at what they do aren't necessarily smarter, just work harder

i'd be challenger too no problem if I could play for 8+ hours a day. heck I was unemployed for a month and jumped from silver to plat from playing so much

theres still the hardwork aspect of continual improvement. its not just about shutting your brain off and playing for fun.

In post 370, mykonian wrote:I don't think that's generally established, inte. Not saying you need to be in the top 1% for most physical sports, but between better general health giving you better chances at a higher IQ, and that outsmarting your opponent or understanding your own performance better could give you an edge, I daresay in many a sport the very top is smarter than average. IDK, there's also talent at work, and there's only so much you can do with just training.


i played at a 'challenger level' dota for quite a few years back in high school, and i was i guess the lower end of them. sure lots of them were people i would call smart, but definitely the common theme between most of them were that they played a fuckton of scrims against good players

just my 2c from playing prolly 10,000+ hours of dota between 2006 - 2011

I agree that for the first ~9 minutes, support is more important than ADC. That doesn't make it a good, healthy or interesting role. And it doesn't make it one that really has a direct impact on the game.

It 100% has a direct impact on the game.

A bad support will mean botlane (mostly) loses.
A bad support won't roam and help struggling teammates.
A bad support has no vision / objective control.

A good support will deny vision late game and will force a pick. If that's not directly impacting the game I don't know what is.
-Side note: I'm a support main, I'm obviously going to be biased


the thing about support is since there are way less people playing support than other roles, when ur actually good at what u do u def outshine and can even lightweight carry early game

nope, not arguing anything. just thinking about the message riot is trying to send when they chat restrict people. i think its a humorous consequence for being an asshat to make games demonstrably worse for 10 more games.

specifically what did you think i said required a chat restriction? is being annoying in a game where the mute function is so readily available and easy to use a chat restrict/bannable offense? is not using chat or pings at all a chat restrict/bannable offense too?

Makes people think you're uncooperative, reduces team cohesion, tanks morale... are these "small"? Maybe. But they have a bigger impact than you think, especially in what is supposed to be a serious, competitive game mode. And especially when it costs you nothing to not be a dick.


honestly, cooperation has nothing to do with the game unless you're at the .01%. the entire game is really a mix between if you get teammates that are hot or not and if you're improving yourself. /muteall is a godsend when you're tilted. but again, thats a u problem because riot empowers you with the tools to stop any of this. i'm actually mad they stopped automatically adding people to the ignore list when you mute them in game because it was a way i kept track of shitty flamers.

you're seeing only exactly i was sending to people, not what was coming back at me. and its fun. sorry you don't like it Xd, just mute then.

1. That definitely doesn't justify it. At all. Not only is it offensive and wrong to say, it's stupid as hell because no one is forcing you to spend RP on a skin. It's literally cosmetic.

2. It affects my enjoyment of the game. I play to have fun. I have far less fun when people like you are in my game. You deserve to be shut up in the game until you can either (a) figure out why being a jerk should cause you to be punished or (b) accept that even if you don't agree you should still not spew your jerkiness.


- i mean nothing 'justifies' being offensive in a perfect world. but this is league of legends where people who like video games play them with other people. you're acting like i went into a lecture about predatory business practices when i really was just bitching about how shitty zac's skins are Xd

- i play to have fun too. i seriously doubt anyone who plays a video game plays to not have fun.

Last time I played against a tryn i completely crushed him. And most of the times before that tbh. Tryn top doesn't tend to carry in my experience. Tryn jungle on the other hand is a completely different kettle of fucking horrible fish


who do u typically play? trynd has some hard MUs

ok, is the objective of when ur playing league of legends to accumulate lp, or to play a video game?

u will absolutely end up wherever ur skill lies, regardless of what methods you use. grinding games and playing odds is not fun guys, just go play poker if u want a math rush

dodging is really dumb

well, if you systematically use dodging well you'll end up at a higher LP and MMR. So "yes" in the sense that you'll end up where you "belong." But no, that doesn't mean you'll end up the same place as if you didn't dodge.


lets say gaming the system and dodging when u think ur gonna lose with ur team nets you a 5% higher mmr on average

the point i'm trying to make is that for everyone else who don't champ select dodge will be approximately 5% better than you (if they don't also champ dodge) and you will lose 5% more games against people that didn't dodge a game

i mean, if you want to get into gold for rewards or w/e, then power to u cuz thats actually a tangible benefit, but i really think you should focus on your csing, game sense, communication, lane control because that would actually make you 5% better

Some people win more games through being better than their opponents with mechanical skill. Some through map awareness. Some through communication. Why can't champion select and dodging be part of that equation too? If I can avoid the worst matchups that's PART of the skill of ranking up. The ONLY thing that matters for ranked in the end is your ability to win games. If I win more games by dodging games I believe I have a 33% or less chance of winning from champ select, I've increased my ability to win regardless of other factors like mechanical skill.

As for csing and what not, I don't see why this is mutually exclusive to that.


its not really a skill

if winning is the only thing that matters to u then ur on the right track. i just think queue dodging subverts what a game is meant to be about. u don't get better at league of legends by queue dodging.

It's important to pay attention to where your team as well - where can I stand that my team will peel, I'm not standing next to all of our carries while they have AoE ults etc. In a 1v5 positioning isn't going to be a priority, so its important to pay attention to everything swinging the fight.

Q - Rootcaller
COOLDOWN 16/15/14/13/12 seconds ⇒ 14/13/12/11/10 seconds
NEWTREE SIN Ivern can now reactivate Rootcaller to take the dash portion of the ability in addition to issuing a basic attack

R - Daisy!
HEALTH 1250/2000/3500 ⇒ 1250/2500/3750
PUSHING DAISY Daisy should generally be smarter when it comes to following Ivern’s commands


Ivern is really good now.

the buff to daisy's tankiness (and it still has 50% AP scaling!) means with regular shielding she can solo towers on her own without minion support, .
And her AI in combo with his CC makes every teamfight a 6v5!
She doesn't just stand around anymore, and she doesn't die as quickly.
In my last normal, (with my shielding) she was able to tank and take down a 60% health turret without any minion help, and while being attacked.
I find as ivern the literally all I have too is send her into the fray, constantly E her or a teammate and land Qs. There's basically no interaction with the enemy team (cait's attack range is 650; his lowest range spell has a range of 750), rendering ivern's contribution to teamfights something like a long range tank
her initial movement speed, and ability to dash to ivern's q and carry his e makes her engage reasonably strong and unreasonably safe for ivern;
the risk that normally comes with diving into the enemy team just doesn't exist for ivern because of his ult

did you know she keeps fighting while ivern is being revived via guardian angel?
ivern is totally untargettable for those 4 seconds, and the enemy team is left with a 3750HP juggernaut still harrassing them
ion

another item that i and a lot of other people have found success with is a mejai's soul stealer as a second item (after athene's);
only 2 jgers die less often than ivern - sejuani and zac; none of them scale well with AP like ivern does
and of course, since ivern is the only support jungler, no other jungler gets as many assists as him
this makes the payoff from the item comparatively reliable, especially combined with the guardian angel
though of course there's still considerable disagreement over how to build him

and have you seen the way the mastery changes impacted him? greenfather's gift and courage of the collosus are both boons for him, and accessible in the the same build!

this is a bit disorganized, but they really gave ivern everything he needed to be fine, and then they gave him more; i think i'll main him for a while and wonder if he'll be nerfed sometime
the clearest thing about ivern that has gotten worse for him over the last few patches is his clear; the smite nerfs and his incapacity to benefit from jungle item changes makes his csing slower
that said, stats suggest he still cses better than 30 other junglers (a rank improvement by 10 places) and that it's his invades rather than his own clear that was impacted by these changes (he fell 40 places in counter jungle cs to become the worst counter jungler of all. 40!)


i like ivern as a champ, but i can't play him without a dope skin

mecha ivern would be a buy 4 me

I'm having trouble playing around low elo and I end laning phase 10-12min in. 25-75 I smash the enemy team, the rest of the time I end up trading back to parity, but it comes at a cost at letting my lane counterpart to ignore map and get back into the game. I feel like I take a complete 90° and kill my lane momentum. Maybe I'm too afraid to lose, but these are things I would used to do when I didn't suck at the game, so I'm going to be a typical solo queue player and blame my team for being unable to do anything with the small but real advantages I give them.

I don't really have the mental stamina or the free time to grind 100 games to knock sense into me. If you have a top lane hack, I'd like to know.

Currently I'm thinking Renekton is the best pick for me right now. Super good itemization right now, top lane carries are common in solo queue and he smashes them. Nobody counterpicks with Shen so you can blind pick and expect a winning lane. Only champion I've won with in ranked at least :roll:

In post 2796, JasonWazza wrote:*personal opinion*

Having looked over the design of the new champions, it just makes me slightly annoyed at how they decided to do this, having 2 champions linked in game is a good thing, having that link being champion specific is terrible, it would be like if kalista could only link up with one specific champion in league, it's limiting and stupid in how it's gonna work.

Especially since this is never going to make it to professional play or anything like that, because there is no logistical way that both champions should be up for the team picking second if they want to deny it (which their kits seem overloaded together)

as for non-competitive for people who want to play solo as bot or support, this essentially means relying on a random ADC/Support, to pick the other champion, or being at the luck of the dice as to whether you get one or both of the champs even when your duoing in ranked because of the unorganized nature.

While it's a great design, it's a terrible execution in terms of ever getting any useful play time until they become non-meta in anything other then blind pick.

Whether the synergy is fake or not (i would argue the synergy is enough given the ADC W passes on to the support) fact is they have to be balanced either around never being together (which should basically always be the case) or being together (which shouldn't realistically happen)

Meaning they are either overtuned when they are together, or undertuned when they aren't, and neither of those are really acceptable states to be in.

I just think it would be better if they made it so it could be with any champion (picking kalista style), and made it so balance isn't such an issue with these 2.


exactly my point. they are hamfisted as fuck.

an example of good synergy is alistar and kalista because their skillsets compliment each other
