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.

Swain was fine before the buffs tbh. Swain right now is In a similar situation to post-rework Darius - tons of damage and too much healing to deal with.

Tbh Swain is basically broken right now at silver elo. People aren't good enough to shut him down early so he can easily farm up and then 1v3 because of his regen and high damage. Played against him and he was regening faster than a lucian karma and graves could deal damage to him with three items.

Wait until Riot buffs adcs, the role is awful. :3

^ this

Also having just played a custom game with some friends where there was a brand, ahri and full ap sona on the enemy team as tristana, I recommend standing behind tanks. It won't allow most skillshots to hit you. You can also wait for the main damage threats to be cc'd and then walk up to auto them when they are unable to damage you. Another thing that is a bit more difficult is knowing what the cooldowns of the enemies abilities are. For example, when I saw the enemy ahri use their charm I knew I had ~6 seconds where that wasn't a threat and I would be able to get closer to the ahri and auto them. Doing that for every single champion on the enemy team can be a bit difficult, but it is kind of just the state of adcs right now, sadly.

Jokes on you, no one plays tanks in silver because they think the are going to carry the game. And then the enemy camps you so you get really far behind. And then still focusses you. And you can do nothing.

For example you could go lucian ezreal or caitlyn. Lucian is super strong rn with his mobility dps and burst damage and a billion other reasons. Anyway, you can stay safe with him using his dashes. Ezreal, long range, short cooldown flash so you can stay sage. Caitlyn, proper trap placement and your range plus net will help you stay safe. I would have to see specific games to give better advice but you should probably just ask gendaberry anyway cause he is much better than me.

Lucian and cait are in my top four adcs (second and fourth). Basically people 4 man you every fight if you play lucian, and if you play caitlyn without a frontline the rest of your team dies immediately before you can deal enough damage and you end up being left with 3 people running you down. Adcs don't have enough kite options at the moment and at my elo most players (including myself to a certain extent) aren't good enough at peeling to keep you safe, and you have to rely on your own kiting mechanics which have to be VERY high level to survive at the moment.

Till you realize it's absolutely glorious to be the only tank in a game. Just go completely full tank, your base damages are significant vs people who buy full offensive. And then they have to deal with you or get out of your way, and there is nothing that can deal with you because they cannot stand long enough next to you to kill you because your teammates will wreck them. So they have to "focus the carries", but have no dedicated engage, while your team has peel (which is you, the god of the rift). Everybody in silver can group up and push mid (I mean, it's that or baron...) and you can hardly lose that fight.

I'm pretty sure last season my galio winrate was inflated because I got into many a game like that (picking mid then realizing my top was squish and their entire team was squish).

Yeah, I've started doing that on Shen.

If youre playing lucian and getting killed at the beginning.of fights youre positioning incorrectly or kiting poorly ngl

OK. Basically if you go anywhere near the enemy team they immediately dive you. Even in the middle of a teamfight they will stop who they are attacking and dive onto you.

One game off of entering my promos. I'm in a good mood. I decide to play adc. The enemy then pick Vi and kata and get incredibly fed and decide to hard focus me and we lose the game. I do not know why I never learn.

Current meta might be worth sticking the adc in bronze. They aren't going to do a huge amount in the current meta and a decent defensive support will stop them from feeding. Stick them on ezreal and tell to try to hold their e for defensive use and they should be ok.

Fervor on adcs, thunderlords on assassins or burst mages, deathfire touch on poke champs, grasp of the undying on fighters, bond of stone on tank supports, windspeakers on healers, strength of the ages on non-adc junglers. Stormraiders surge isn't great and warlords is for specific champs like Trynd and Olaf

I think this is a rare 100% wrong statement

Yas's only escape is his E which he needs to manage who it is on cooldown for. He really isn't as slippery if he isnt good

Going in is fine. Unless they have a stun in which case they use it on you and you die because they saw you coming from miles away and prepped it. Or even a lot of damage which they can throw at you. You have no escape unless someone behind you isn't on e cooldown. Even then it isn't a huge distance.

Not really seing as it has a very long cooldown. Massive window to abuse it. Or just walk through it. It really isn't that reliable and is on a 20+ sec cooldown.

Tbh at low ELOs dont bother getting defence. Maybe pick up a GA. Your team won't peel for you and you will get hard focused, so stay really far back and wait for perfect fights where they are distracted and you can go ham.

Basically, in lane support set up the adc to deal damage. Unless you are in extremely low ELO then your adc will almost know how to follow up, but if your support isn't either setting you up or protecting you you are basically playing 1v2.

I would argue that most support mains, are such because SOMEONE has to support, not because they actually want to be a support. Even ani admits to wanting to jungle rather than support. Most supports would rather be something else. Why do you think you have such a large pool of "support mains" in lower elo that are just auxillery mid laners and not actual supports?

But that's mostly just gut.

The fact that support isn't directly impactful and that the vast majority of players will not play it are both objective facts.

To be fair this doesn't apply to everyone, I main support in Silver and play Thresh, Ali shen pre-work, and Morgana with a proper support build and not full ap with a 25 minute RoA finish.

This isn't true. Support is pretty wildly popular in Overwatch. I'm pretty sure medic is played a ton in TF2 as well.

support is the least played role in overwatch too


No way, I feel like I always have one on my team, except for when I play with you

You have a support in your team basically every single game in League.

They are bad then. In lane i probably land about 50% at least and the ones that don't land are due to them dodging or a slight miscalculation.

A major issue with shen is that him landing his engage isn't nearly as threatening as just about any other engaging melee champion in the game, damage-wise. It enables ganks well, but aside from that you're not really going to be like "oh no shen landed one engage, I am about to die or nearly die" - whereas if you get caught by renekton, xin, olaf, cho'gath, pantheon, et al and get all in'd, you're probably dead.

So if you aren't about to die, you can just kinda... keep hitting the guy as he tries to walk away after hitting you. Whereas against the aforementioned people, you're either dead or about to be if you keep hitting them, so you have to back off somewhat, leading to them to be able to walk away from you and wait for their cooldowns.

The thing is, people at my ELO don't expect it from Shen, and don't respect his damage, so they will keep letting you trade with them while your cooldowns are up.

That being said, I am eriously considering starting when I am playing adc and get a lux support. It always go the same - they start dorans, get no wards or support items, feed in lane and try to play like a mid laner despite going 0/7 and screwing my lane up.

When playing Jinx. look to only use your chompers when they are guaranteed to help so they have solid uptime. Try to use rockets as poke but pay attention to mana. In teamfights stay behind tanks, wait on your passive and then go ham. Try to use your ult on the first person to die in a fight to get your passive going if you haven't attacked them or need to burst them more.

Well, you can't kite. Neither can I. There's this wonderful command called "attack-move", which when alternated with moving normally could help you position during the fight much more easily and avoid silly deaths by walking on top of your assaillant. Many years of lol and several attempts have not managed to get that in my fingers, then again, I don't see all that many opponents use it. If you are serious about adc'ing though, that's probably something you want to pick up.

Then again, the problem I read here is that you are worried that you don't do enough. You are a carry, it's fine to wait out threats. If you are the first or second in, you are in too soon. Get to a spot where you can shoot safely, then fire away, your single target damage is unmatched to the point where you can spend 4 or 5 seconds just getting the occasional bullet in on your closest assailant without getting the most of your attackspeed and still have a damage chart that will tell you you did your part. And it's silver, they say they focus the adc. They mostly focus the thing that is closest that they can hit. If you are in 3rd/4th, half the enemy team is too busy to notice you the first second you shoot them. It's fine to be patient.

i def need to learn to attack move. I guess that I generally feel like i need to carry the fight singlehandedly and kill everyone, which is impossible to do immediately as an adc

And it's silver, they say they focus the adc. They mostly focus the thing that is closest that they can hit. If you are in 3rd/4th, half the enemy team is too busy to notice you the first second you shoot them. It's fine to be patient.


This is very true.

The AD carry's job is not to be the first into the fight. It is also not to be the one who runs down the enemy carries. It is just to stay alive and keep autoattacking. You are about sustained damage, not picks.

In Silver, your team will whine about you attacking the tank and screech about "FOCUS ADC NOOB".

Your team is wrong.

So long as you are safe and autoattacking, you are doing your job. You do not have to run past the Renekton in your face to throw one auto at the Jinx on the other end of the river.

Now, there are times when you can do that, but that gets into tracking cooldowns and everything, and you really don't need to worry about that at a Silver level. For now, just focus on staying alive, but autoing as much as you can while staying safe. This very basic mechanical skill is enough to get you through Silver and up to, I'd say, somewhere around Gold I.

thanks for the advice! I think that my biggest issue is always wanting to kill people in a fight rather than just output damage.

what would it look like if a role were harder than the others?
if it were really hard to be effective as an adc, maybe on average adc main winrates would vary less from 50% than the winrates of other role mains when they have equivalent levels of experience?

The thing with adc is that it is easier for other lanes to ruin your game than any other. It's very hard to do your job if the enemy team is snowballing.

In post 2281, mykonian wrote:So, this bothers me, and it's something super tiny that I run into at p much all levels which makes complete sense to me that I can't seem to explain to other people.

At some point of the game you are going to group up as a team to go "do" something, be that pushing, be that going for dragon/baron. Now your team isn't homogenous, there's some bulk (top/jungle/tank supp maybe some control mage) and some backline (adc, mid mage, ranged support). Obviously there's tons of ways to set that up but the general principle goes. There are people who should avoid getting hit, and there are people who don't mind getting hit for a little, as long as their backline deals more damage.

Now the game isn't so boring that you have to break through the wall before you can kill the juicy squishies. There's mobility abilities, and cc, but most basically, there's: "the flank". You come through a direction that the frontline doesn't cover and the backline falls easily! Now nearly often the obvious direction is the same as the direction of the lane, that's covered. If the enemy wants to flank, he'll have to give up your direct line to their towers/base and have to walk a little longer. There's a trade off.

So why oh why would you position your team in such a way that the most obvious position for them to be in, is also the one they could most succesfully flank from? Why, because someone pinged dragon obviously:Image

Team pushes up mid as a response, and when they got to the river, they turn right, finding some of the opposing team already there doing scuttle or whatever. Pretty common situation. Now if the x's aren't warded, the backline basically can't walk into the river, they die to something coming through mid, something jumping over the wall, or something hiding in the brush. The frontline then, does not have the damage to back them up, there's no way to win as you've opened your team to a flank. If the x's are warded, the advantage is that you'll know when you can't walk there... but if there's someone standing accross the wall, you still can't actually have the frontline in front of the dragon pit.

Image
More annoyingly, the situation where the frontline has "caught" somebody in mid, who limps out and is escaping into their jungle behind baron. Everybody is running, you don't know where their team is, and the back line becomes opened up to the blue angles of attack, with no cover as they are running after the guy that's almost dead but p much getting away.

And it's like that, pretty much everytime you leave the lane, if you don't have wards beyond where you are in their jungle, you can't actually do it without compromising your formation. You have to walk around.

People don't think ahead in lower ELOs. They don't think "we're going to be pushing up for a fight in a minute so I should try to get some wards around midlane". Also people don't really understand how much lane control influences where you can go on the map.

Had a game where I managed to make my Vayne fed. Meanwhile, top went 0-5, lost two towers and then ragequit leaving us with a fed akali who could oneshot our vayne.

Then had another game where people were already argueing in champ select and someone "accidently" banned yasuo who someone else wanted to pick, so that person was just hellbent to feed his ass off.

high bronze/low silver ELO are horrible. people know how to push a lead but not how to play from behind so coming back is really hard.

same. especially when it's combined with a generally bad adc meta. lux is the worst to play with tbh. not because of the champ entirely, but the people that play her have no idea how to play support 9 times out of 10 and the adc is basically in a 1v2 lane.

You mean like a mage that has a good lane pjase vs. other supports?

They play him as someone who walks past the wave and zones with voidlings. Great at early levels, once the enemies start getting ganks and ultis not so much. You need a good combo with his ult e.g. mf for low elos supports to be good in him

lethality was a lot stronger but is falling off slightly now. adc's have been basically trash outside of 1 or 2 every patch until now. we arent in a tank meta really. your looking at bruisers like renekton or fiora top, assassins in the jungle or bruisers like warwick. warlords has been reworked to stqack like a rapid firce cannon or stattik shiv which gives some buffs when procced. bond of stone got removed and replaced witha new mastery which means crowd control marks enemies and allies that attack marked enemies heal. those were the main reworks i think that are particularly important. edge of night might have come out after you left which gives lethality, ad, mr and a channeled spell shield. also healing supports are really strong and ardent censer is a great item (champs like sona and lulu). also they removed laser towers and made them normal.

come back after a couple of weeks off of league
incredibly fed adc and support repeatedly throw the game by going for kills rather than objectives and the fiora on the enemy team 4v1s at all full builds
good to be back

mage supports are weaker now, tanks are coming back. also you are generally looking at getting locket on top laners here. different situations will make different items stronger. if you can afford the delay on redemption it might be more useful but that isnt always an option.

i've been enjoying unsealed on malz as you can take rly variable summs on him throughout the game (tp/ign/exh/ghost/heal/barrier all work) so depending on how the game plays out i can switch it up.

I haven't played him much.

a lot of it is how you are doing or if you want something in lane or not. you might want to run exh early vs zed but prefer to have ghost mid game for roaming or switch to barrier if you get behind. you can also switch to ignite if you are ahead etc.
as you can fight on a p regular basis the reduced cooldowns from switching helps, and combined with hexflash for going over walls to catch ppl with your ult makes a p decent tree all around.

even with advanced warning though she zones you really fucking hard, and at low elo you dont have good enough positioning as a team to peel and let the adc burst her.

In all seriousness tho, I really think the people who hate on URF are not the target audience. Simple as that. Feel free to play ranked, and do what you like to do, and we will do the same. Winning is not always the priority.

i think the issue here is that the URF audience isnt the Clash udience, who this is being done to apologize to
In post 3725, Panzerjager wrote:The people who enjoy urf are the same people that enjoy aram. Lower skilled members of the community that don't care about getting better or trivial things like having a balanced experience. Essentially people who are bad and do not care that they are bad and only want to "have fun" by shooting a bunch of lux moves because if you shoot enough free skillshots eventually you'll hit one and you don't have to worry about pesky things like low accuracy. mana or cooldown to ruin your "late game fantasy". The irony is like...every game of lux ends in URF so like...just play lux and every game will be urf and you can play ranked and learn to play league which is a joyful yet arduous experience.

or you can enjoy both ...
i almost always play ranked SR but sometimes if i dont have a role i feel like playing or am tilted i'll play aram to screw around for a little bit
