: is the prestige kai sa really that hard to get? i mean as soon as it was out i had it o.O
It took me exactly 5 re-rolls to get. The other 4 being K/DA Evelynn, Akali, Ahri and Kai'sa. https://i.gyazo.com/4d6c61ceac09f7bd65657d701e7173e9.jpg
: That's big talk considering you too are Silver, and looking at your history it looks like the one season you were Gold is suspicious. But sure, use rank as a means to insult people, I'm sure that'll make you climb the ladder for sure this time.
: The unexpected results of having Draft Pick
I've been saying for a long time that if OCE is going to only have one queue, it should be Draft Pick. The games are generally so much more satisfying, calling roles is no longer a problem, and you get a chance to change Rune & Mastery pages to mitigate hard match-ups. Unfortunately, queue health will be a big issue if Riot brings back Draft Queue because the playerbase will potentially be split across Blind, Draft, SoloQ, Flex, 3v3 and the Featured Game Mode depending on the day of the week (which leads back to my first statement - if we have to have one Normal Q, it should be Draft Pick).
: Cos draft pick totally takes away people's shitty computers? And draft pick encourages hard counters _(thats the whole point of seeing what the enemy picks)_. Im afraid I don't understand.
1. But they don't call in the Lobby - they select role beforehand. 2. But you get to alter your runes and masteries to mitigate how shit the lane is.

[It's about fucking time.](https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-strategy/Ml9uMfoA-can-we-replace-blind-pick-with-no-bans-normal-draft) I have no idea why we were forced into a position where we had a choice between have games ruined by shitty comps/hard counters/mirror lanes (all of the downsides of Blind Pick), or playing Ranked.
: DON'T ASK FOR PREMADES FOR ONSLAUGHT HERE
I'm at the point where I'm just playing the mode for fun but I'm still happy to help people do the missions.

: Mastery 7+
No. Just Make an S+ Tier that's tied to ranked so it shows what level of play you've actually earned that mastery at. I really don't give a fuck if you're a mastery 20 yasuo with 2 million mastery points if you're hardstuck bronze. Mastery should never have been a system that endorsed Quantity over Quality.
: the reason is so you can start the lane with 3 health potions along side the heal from relic, the gold share also helps your support rush {{item:3504}}, its not something you just do with a random support player and with any old marksman. i think its best done with a kog maw and a lulu
Moderate-to-high elo players do this IN SAFE/WINNING MATCHUPS because they can cs without the extra AD from D Blade/on-hit damage from D Shield. But yeah, basically they get it to get their Support an earlier item powerspike.
Rioter Comments
: I believe Riot has reported that they plan to make a new tab/feature to their client where you can view all skins owned on your profile which acts much like the champions tab where you can view all and owned champions. I cannot find the link to where they posted this but if I find it i'll notify you. NOTE: I may not be 100% correct on this
Yeah, they're adding this in preseason.
: Diana or Malzahar
If you're still buying champions it's too soon for you to jump onto Ranked. You will sandbag a bunch of innocent players' games until you finally hit Bronze V.
: For People Having Trouble With Invasion: Onslaught
Please refrain from playing AD {{champion:81}}. If you're _**that**_ desperate to play him, please build him AP and take up the 'Mage' slot in your team comp.
: For People Having Trouble With Invasion: Onslaught
Please don't load into a game as Poppy with Grasp and Rush a Sunfire. That build is about as selfish and useless as you can get.

: Ahhh i see, does that mean that OP will have to check 2nd hand sources if he still wants Amumu?
No you can still get it new. Riot literally just never released it here and Gamestop (US) doesn't ship to Australia. http://www.gamestop.com/collectibles/toys/pop-games-league-of-legends-collectors-box/131603 Gamestop is called EB Games in Australia by the way.

What are you smoking and where can I get some? It was the 6th when you posted this comment.

10 Star Guardian Skins. 1 Melee Champion. What a time to be a Jungle Main. EDIT: AND she's only a decent Jungler in 3v3.

: Hey ABlueQuaker, We thought it would be a better experience for the Oceanic players to have the OPL Grand Final at the time where most of them want to watch some Esports, which meant kicking off at 5pm on Saturday. Naturally there is some fans who would prefer to watch the LCK Regional Qualifiers, and that's totally cool - but for the OPL supporters, we wanted to put it on at the best time slot we could. Sorry that this didn't work out for you.
Fortunately I have two screens so I had LCK on my Primary Monitor and OPL on my Secondary Monitor with the sound muted. Still doesn't make your decision any less flawed. Honestly, OPL has enough trouble just competing against streamers - putting it up against KOREAN Regional Qualifiers was pure stupidity.

: Demoted after losing one game at 0LP S1 to S2
But what you don't see is that once you hit 0 LP the first time, you go into an unofficial 'demotion series'. I assume that's where you went L, L, L, W, W, L, L, L, W, L in your Ranked Match History.
belquin (OCE)
: Thanks for the feedback Mighty Haegr - you have a strong point! I'm fairly confident this was a decision made as opposed to just something that we overlooked, but I can't recall why - so I'm going to ask some questions. Thanks a lot for passing on the comment :)
For the same reason they scheduled the OPL Grand Final at the same time as LCK Regional Qualifiers - the OCE Rioters are morons. I was making this same point about OPL not getting advertised on the LoL Esports website [TWO SEASONS AGO](https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/esports/Hc3HFjce-ok-weve-had-competitive-lol-in-oce-for-2-full-seasons-now).
Main Line (OCE)
: I think it's a combination of factors. Let's list them, compared with, say, Season 5. * The ability to level up to 30 quicker without really understanding the game. * The fallout from dynamic queue boosting in Season 6. * The increase over time of boosters in the game. * The ability to select positional roles in champion select without learning something about all roles (and hence the game) ! * The fact that smurf accounts are cheap as chips, and prices are dropping further with the removal of rune costs. * The increase of late night toxic foreign players that have been banned from their own servers (not naming who or where from). * The increase of new players into the player base, all learning bad habits (this includes toxic behaviour) from other bad players. I'm not going to go into Flex Queue, which is all over the shop, but what you say is pretty much on the mark. OCE does not understand macro, it's absolutely hopeless. It's better in challenger, but still only at the top levels (just watch IWD's, Big Swip's or Chippy's stream to see). But the same thing has happened in a lot of regions. NA soloqueue is worse, according to LS. He said that basic lane assignments and late game understanding is worse than when he last played there. It would be good if the tutorial actually spoke about the basics of the game. i.e. how to efficiently get gold, what are the different classes of champions, and what experience is, because newbies have no idea. Alternatively another solution would be that players need some arbitrary number of wins in normals before they are allowed to rank. This would definitely help the skill gap, but might be counter intuitive to revenue policies :) I've watched some of my Bronze replays from Jan 2015 and players were way better in Bronze at the simple things (not talking about mechanics here) than even in Gold these days.
Making it more difficult for new players/smurf to jump straight into Ranked would be nice. Honestly, back in the day I was just lucky enough to have friends that straight-up told me no to play ranked for a season or two. People just have selfish mindsets nowadays. They jump straight into ranked at lvl 30. They only play one role, or one champ, and sandbag your game if they don't get it. Hell, even when they do get their main role/champ they neglect cs, they play lane as though kills mean everything and don't know how/when to play safe. Once upon a time Ranked was sacred. People only queued up for it if their net was fine, their computer was fine, and they had the skills and game knowledge to not be a burden on their team mates.
okh8rs (OCE)
: I think OCE is a trash server compared to NA
I honestly agree with OP. Something has changed on OCE over the last 10-12 months. I'm not sure what it is, but the average player is a LOT worse than they used to be. Solo Queue is a fucking NIGHTMARE. June-July last season I was Plat II on my way to Diamond for the first time, took a short break from ranked, came back and players suddenly didn't know how to draft a good team comp, couldn't lane safely, and their macro was horrible. And it's only gotten worse since then. The only time I can get a decent game nowadays is Flex when I duo/trio queue.

: Arcade Missions
Only parts of missions are map reliant. Not actually sure if any are directly tied to the ARURF game mode. I'm more than happy to complete missions in Normal/Ranked SR or ARAM or 3v3 but I detest (AR)URF.
: this is what gets you perma banned in 2017.
Waiting for a Rioter to show his real chat logs and tell us this is his 4th offence.
: Can we get it **with** bans? It'd be nice to play a non-ranked game without having: Lee Jung Yas mid Vayne/Cait ADC every. single. game.
The issue with that is that then you'd have champions permanently banned in all game modes. You'd never be able to learn the likes of Lee, Yasuo or Zed.

: Learn more: Pulsefire Caitlyn
I've had PFE since Seaon 3 but I don't have the new Icon?
: Right honest question.
Be the one preemptively roaming. If your team won't rotate to you, rotate to your team. If you're that far ahead roam bot, double kill their lane, take tower. I got to Silver from shot-calling back in the day. My ping was so bad that I just played Annie Support and called for my Jungler ONCE for ONE all-in and just got my team to rotate well enough that we could consolidate a lead and close out the game methodically. Double kill bot. Take Dragon. Back. Take mid. Back. Spend and close out game with huge gold lead.

How does it feel to work as a commentator in the worst LoL Competition in the world? Like, does it ever feel like you're just watching mid-Diamond NA SoloQ?
: Another, Falsely Accused Player Banned For Scripting. Thanks riot.
They do these bans in waves. Sometimes they make mistakes. Put in a support ticket and, if you're innocent, they'll help you out.
: And? That's what's supposed to happen when an ADC fights an assassin.
Honestly, at least Assassins are generally squishy enough to outplay. An 0/4 Caitlyn with a couple of items can still kill a Zed quite comfortably.

: Odd - my client / site had the updated message - it should automatically update when the new message goes live. Can you let me know when you last logged in / what time you checked the ticker to see if I can track down what made the message not show for you?
Not to mention we were notified of the maintenance days ago... The new client is a bit buggy though. Half the time it says my friends are in a game when they actually aren't (and vice versa). A lot of in-client info isn't automatically updating/refreshing like it usually would requiring me to completely re-log.
: Chinese on OCE
I don't think they should be punished for not speaking English, but I think they're better off not typing and simply sticking to pings. There are a lot of International Students and Immigrants in Australia that have every right to play LoL.
: i dont even like liandries on teemo, i build him ap marksman {{item:3091}} {{item:3115}} {{item:3135}} {{item:3020}} {{item:3089}} {{item:3285}} ludens was cuz i couldnt think of final item XD
You don't go AP on Teemo anymore because they deliberately fucked the scaling on his R back in the day. You basically just want as much Magic Pen as you can get and then you pickup Gunblade and Nashor's Tooth (that build is the only reason Teemo is sitting so high on Tier lists right now).

: 200-300ms isn't that late or it doesn't feel so slow in bronze-silver, if you're paying attention enough you can still shield skillshots. I acknowledge that with my setup developing mechanical skill isn't really an option, so I try to make good decisions and play simple champions. Tbh I think I'd probably be bronze 5 if I actually had a good setup, because my setup forces me to focus on things like minion mechanics, warding, remembering cooldowns, making the right calls and watching the map for opportunities. I can't play an outplay based champion or skillcap champion, so I've gotten better at things that I think matter more at this level. Personally I think you learn alot playing on high ping and low fps.
I started playing in Season 2 when we HAD to play on NA. Mind you, I didn't even have good net at the time so my ping was usually ~240ms. I justified this as being okay because NA was the OCE region's designated server at the time so Riot couldn't really get mad at use for lagging. During this time I pretty much only played in the middle of the day when I wasn't at uni and while my siblings were at school so that I had plenty of bandwidth. My laptop was decent at the time, but when my framerate started to drop I quit until I could afford a better computer. This is why I think you shouldn't be allowed to play LoL. I'm a responsible person. I saw I was a burden to my teammates, so I took measures to correct that. To see people like you all over the place ruining games makes me wish there was a system scan in place to prevent people from playing Ranked. It's an issue because Riot doesn't think it's an issue. So someone ruins a game, then someone else ruins a game. If someone gets these people on their team a few games in a row people's ignorance and irresponsibility has probably just lost someone their promo series without them even getting a chance to prove themselves.
: The limitations of his setup will be (and seem to have been by his own words) reflected in his rank. If he was creating problems for people he'd be receiving a lot of reports, and facing things like Leaver Buster on a regular basis for the disconnects. The fact that he hasn't (though I imagine he's seen the occasional LB) says that the limitation IS reflected in his rank and his mmr and no more is necessary since it effectively balances it out. Doesn't seem like he plays all that much ranked anyway, so I don't really see why you have such a big problem with it. If his circumstance was such that he was constantly in an out and basically not playing the game then yeah, it's a problem, but if that were the case, it would have been actioned.
Nah, people like this make playing the game so much more frustrating than it needs to be. Hop on for a chill normal game only to find that every single engage or peel or heal comes late without exception.
Nightjar (OCE)
: also when you play in bronze for long enough, the sh*tty decision making kinda rubs off on you, if you also have awful mechanics, the elo molds you, so that you cannot leave.
If you play on a setup that you KNOW cannot run the game, you deserve Bronze. Stop ruining people's games lmao. I report people like you for Griefing. Riot needs a system check to stop people like you from queuing up for ranked.
: We made it!!!
Outback Quinn? Valor can be a Cockatoo so Quinn can finally have the Parrot that Corsair Quinn should have had.

Not in this meta but it can potentially be viable in a sustained damage meta. You could always just try regular TF and throw in a Nashor's Tooth somewhere.
