: I think i feel so strong about not giving up so much is because i have accounts in almost every elo up to plat. bronze and silver are so easily carried purely from macro. wave control and objectives win those games. i Opt for champs that can solo baron at 25mins (with good farm and gold lead) and just put your whole team and your back and give them some free LP. But yes totally agree that people that give up that early are annoying but also no longer see it after my perma ban on my 3rd gold account because i just mute all so i don't speak. A lot of people should not be playing ranked and not because they suck or anything along those lines but purely because their mental isnt in the right spot.
Yep, people think too much about their rank/kda/ego/skins/memes, than the actual game and what they need to do for the team to win it.

: criticism or helping?
Helping is when you give constructive advice for teammates that will help the team progress. If kids have no balls and take it as toxicity, then unlucky. Examples: "Try a hexdrinker", or "be sure to react to the inting Sion before he gets close to the tower", or "You'll need a QSS", or "We need baron to close because we have no siege". None of the above is egotistical, or personal attacks. But kids still take it the wrong way.

I haven't watched much anime made this millennium because it's mostly derivative trash), but this is not an anime game, so fuck off with the weeb shit Rito. Every remake of a champ becomes more anime, it's fucking sad.
Agreed with the champions thing. The older champions have character, with a jovial side to them. These new champions and reworks and "visual updates" are just sad. They need to focus on the skill and gameplay, rather than appealing to trends. Last good champion released was Kled. Don't rework any champions.

: I was in a game where the enemy Sion did this strategy. It's frustrating because after advising my team what to do against it, they didn't listen, and the 4-16 Sion won the game basically, so I can understand your frustration. The strategy basically takes advantage of monkeys with no macro understanding, and therefore quite good in low elo. In my game Sion did this vs an Kayn, and we had a Jax jungle. The problem was the Jax jungle didn't pay attention to the Sion before he got close to the tower, and went off splitpushing himself because he was clueless. I was trying to advise him on how to counter, but he didn't listen. Another case of that one player in a team costing the team the game. Eventually the split-pushing Jax in the bot lane lost baron of course, as you get with these types of players (Udyr is another common one). As usual, splitpushing is either misunderstood at low elos, or players just have no balls and do that as a way to silent int. In my game there was a time where myself (support), and mid lane Diana were in base and Sion is coming in the top lane, and the Diana just walked mid and ignored him. I'm pinging them over and they just ignore. Low elo monkeys. I see that in your game you managed to win at least with your bronze 3 top laner. Not too bad to get a result there. The other good news is that now Riot realises that they made a mistake all of those patches ago, making towers too easy to kill (looking at you bot tower #1) and are changing this for preseason. We will have longer games again, with more strategy, instead of a quick hose with animals running around looking for meat.
UPDATE: I had a think about this and decided to counter it with Lulu support. Just polymorph the zombie sion before he can kill the tower. [Problem solved.](https://matchhistory.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/OC1/223995109/201025528?tab=overview)

: How are people not running locket on sion yet
Just keep doing what works for you. When you get to a higher skill level (it's oce with monkeys in terms of strategy, so probably diamond 2+), you'll see why locket on Sion top is not efficient. Don't complain about idiots not using good strategies, keep it a secret, or use it to boost for money :)
: Soz by looking at my history ill say i fuckking carry everygame and the point that pisses me off is people either leave half way in the game or start not playing as a team because as i see it with the past fuckking 700 games each game has been fuckking horrific and this system of matching with people is poorly done
Maining Vayne in low elo is not easy. People understand nothing. Try a better laning adc like Varus. Get that first tower, get ahead, and monkeys will gravitate to the win. I agree though, the system is trash and the players are just animals.

: Yes well silver accounts are like $10 so I get that its easier to buy one than level an account. I think Riot should put a cap on ranked, like you cannot play ranked until you own 10 champions with at least level 6 mastery. And like Locodoco agreed with me on stream yesterday, the Tutorial needs to explain what experience and csing actually does. People rush into ranked without having a clue that this is important. They play like its call of duty. It was an interesting discussion because one guy said "but league has so many resources online LUL, you just go to youtube LUL" and Locodoco disagreed stating that if a complete newbie youtubed "How to play adc" he comes up with a lot of stuff thats simply out of date (Graves ADC) but also the clickbait titles (in one video he clicked on we saw QTPie trolling with Yasuo bot lane). Plus the fact that newbies don't want to go out of the game to a completely different site to learn stuff - they want to get playing as soon as possible! The skill in this game is so trash right now. In fact I would say that skill level in BRONZE at the start of season 5 was higher than the skill level this season a whole division more (so if Bronze 1 we talk about Silver 1 etc). S5 ADC: Let's freeze, they cannot walk up. S8 ADC: What is freezing? S5 ADC: Go roam, I'll shove and then get a pickaxe. S8 ADC: I need a BF sword, I'll stay while we have no vision and you are roaming. S8 Support: Just back together and get a pickaxe. S8 ADC: No I need a BF sword even though the opposition only have a longsword. S5 Support: push for level 2! S8 ADC: Stop hitting my minions! S5 Mid Lane Lux: I'll push wave into tower to bounce it. S8 Mid Lane Lux: I can do anything vs Fizz, he's weak. S5 Jungler: Its mid game I should be near my team while they group near baron. S8 Jungler: Meh, we are behind, I'll take a tower and show these laners how its done. S5 Top Laner: OK enemy bot got to lane with less mana. That means enemy jungler will be here around 2:45-3:00, I'll push now and ward at about 2:30. S8 Top Laner: Hashinshin is right, this champion (insert champion's name) is broken! Absolutely brainless. Are you ready for worlds and the absolute demolition of western teams? Not just talking about OPL here. NALCS was at an all time skill low for me. Fnatic in EU look reasonable (if their support doesn't int while warding) and maybe Vitality can go ok on occasion, but the rest will be absolutely demolished. Team Liquid think they are good, but they don't communicate well enough or quickly enough. C9 is hyped up but their jungle will be exposed. And 100 Thieves? Haha. How they got to worlds is kinda like very lucky. They will be absolutely trounced. And why is this? Not enough practice. 1 month of soloqueue in Korea cannot make up for a year's zookeeping with the monkeys on the NA server. They scraped through on championship points and that's it. Their bot lane will be absolutely violated, and Ssumday will have to think about putting money before a chance at a real team in Korea. Dire Wolves? Can they beat the easy Mexican team without Shernfire? Maybe. EDG? Not a chance. Prediction: 1-3 in play-ins, and lose the playoff to the Mexicans.
Currently 1-2 and have to beat EDG to stay alive. Good luck boys. By the way, on stream today it was very interesting how Dardoch says that some NA teams don't even show up on time for their scrims, or they just run if down if they "feel tilted" during the scrims. He said that sometimes teams would even cancel their scrim blocks on the day, and other teams would not play the full amount of games. Weak. Western. Mentality. Exposed.

Shyvana is a bad champion. Her passive is not very good. If she powerfarms the question is.... what is your team doing? If they are all inting then there's not much you can do. Especially a platinum 1 adc inting vs a bronze 2 adc.

: if you get me in games dodge
Haha, that's what I feel like also. Had three games the other day. In two of them this midlaner carried for the opposition. Was part of a 9 game losing streak by me. The next game though, they were on my team. They lost :)
: Your point negate any sort of blame to his own performance. Its not that hard to play Lulu and karma support to win lane and snowball the game. Have yOU ACTUALLY LOOKED AT HIS BUILD? the guy goes dps, if he cant carry the game, then he should stop thinking that he deserve higher rank.
Look, I'm not saying he's the greatest player, BUT, he's not the one thats inting, sooking, ragequitting or trolling. It's silver and gold that we are talking about for god's sake. Players don't understand itemisation. Look at every gold 5 and under game and you will see incorrect itemisation. ALMOST EVERY GAME. Also if his teammates are monkeys maybe HE IS TRYING TO CARRY even with the limited resources that he has. Why support a monkey adc? [Have a look at the Karma game](https://imgur.com/a/heREZVo) closely. How much cc does the enemy team have? Lux only, really. The game is a clown fiesta (look at the number of kills). But the Ashe he is with is the lowest level in the game? Both teams or adcs are low elo so they don't farm much. Towers have obviously gone down quickly, and if the Ashe is a monkey they will not get the side lane farm near tier twos or idiot teammates will take it instead of giving it to the adc. You try to support, but when they are useless af, or are so far behind, or do the same stupid players everytime (e.g. overextending in a side lane because they are underlevelled and dying to Quinn), it's time to move on and build some damage instead. At least he has his wards item. He has a 53% winrate and was bronze the past two seasons, I think he's playing better than in the past. I'm done talking about this topic. My whole point here is that currently there are a bunch of sooks inters and monkeys out there in silver/gold. And that could be for whatever reason (end of season, smurfs killing egotistical jackers, whatever reason). AT LEAST HES PLAYING TO WIN THE GAME.

: no joke, riot has put something on this account that puts me with inters/baby ragers/boosted peeps

I guess its because the meta changes so much. However there are instances that irk me like Kog'maw being recommended Trinity Force, which hasn't been a thing since Patch 5.22. Its best to make your own item pages imo, and leave the recommended builds to the newbies.
: If he get crap teams all day he get demoted, if he get good teams all day he get promoted, if this, if that. No! stop. You dont rely on luck if you want to climb rank. The chances of him getting demoted from getting a series of bad teams, is the same chance he'll get promoted from having good teams. The guy is simply not good enough to even float on average. For god sake, all he vsed was silver 3-4, rarely gold 5. If he cant even manage to carry at that rank, why does he think he can maintained gold?? http://oce.op.gg/summoner/userName=SeibaPendragon Look at the stat, bronze 1 - silver 2 -1 top. BS that he can get to gold if he cant consistently win against bronze and low silver. Check the games that he have lost, most of it is due to playing with and against gold players. The answers is right there, just analyse it.

: That could work fine, except by the time you get essence reafer, most other players would have gotten their items too, leaving you without defensive items and prone to getting deleted in a team fight. Most lower elo players don’t use active items so like blood thirster isn’t too bad of an idea.
Agreed, but I would say that they need to learn to use active items :)
: Essence reaver is a 3.2k gold item. It offers attack damage, mana, mana regen, and cool down reduction as well as a passive that gives master yi resets. It isn’t a bad item, except right now guinsoos is definitely biggest power spike for master Yi.
Sometimes they buy Guinsoo's and then Essence Reaver afterwards, when perhaps they could think about a QSS (no one buys that in low elo - even adcs just buy BloodThirster by default).
: not most of the time its bronze people that have brought accounts I know a mate that has 6 accounts he just keeps getting banned he is just terrible I have told him he is lol he just doesn't listen he ended up buying a challenge account for $150 online in OCE soooooo that explains why u got monkeys in diamond people just buy accounts online lol
Yes well silver accounts are like $10 so I get that its easier to buy one than level an account.

Nightjar (OCE)
: that's not that unbalanced. From an MMR standpoint Silver 5 is often worse than Bronze 1 due to how difficult it is to demote from the 5th division of any elo bracket.
And then you look at the top and mid's winrate and come to understand they are newbies. The Veigar in this game didn't understand that to get levels and items he needs to farm not walk around randomly in the **enemy's jungle**, especially when we had no lane priority.

: If you re-read my first paragraph you'll see that the point i'm making is that I can understand the OP's frustration when you can run into a series of monkeys that appear only on your team in a small sample size of games (e.g. one day's play). This can demote someone from gold to silver. From an mmr point of view, the demotion is not that large, but psychologically the player thinks it is, because then they have to win promos again to get back to their skill ceiling level. Everyone sucks, its all relative. But my team doesn't always suck this much every game in a days play, is what they are saying.
Its kinda like the [following game](https://imgur.com/a/BIKfVmo) where the teams are not matched evenly. In my team I have two complete newbies who ended up inting and not csing, and just running around like headless chickens. Now if the OP gets these teams all day I think they have a right to be aggrieved.

: You do know this concept applied to both side? Anyones can expect the same level of throwing from both the enemy and theirside. If the OP got demoted from gold to silver, it probably mean his skills level was not on that wavelength. Just take a look at the responses bellow. None of them bring up the times their team mate carried them. No, no. it is filled with the times when their team mate failed them. Because their memory is playing selective, and it pick what suit their mindset; Which is, i dont suck, my team suck.

: Are you guys so delusional you think the enemy team dont have the same problem you do? Everyones are put in the same battle ground and all the mess that come with it; **The difference is, ability**. The ones that are bellow the average, and have too big of an ego to admit the skills different, tend to point finger away from their own ability.
Over a sample size of a bunch of games this is true, however for a run of games you can be placed with the monkey teams one day, and then versus the monkeys the next day. People don't lose 10 games in a row one day and then win 10 games in a row the next just because their skill level changed dramatically over those 2 days. I find that in low elo, a few things are prevalent: 1) Players have no balls, they can't control their emotions. This makes them less objective in game. For example one game i went 2/10/10 as a rammus jungle. The game was totally winnable, despite the team flaming me for "feeding". But their attitude was simply to meme and flame, they didn't wanna win the game. For example, three enemies showed in the bot lane at their tier 2 tower, including their jungler. Many times I pinged baron and said "let's go!" and the team refused to come, even though they were close by. They would rather say "noob feeder!" than win the game. Need I mention that the whole enemy team was AD? :) They put weight on your KDA score as to if you can shotcall. Rather than the objectiveness of the call, its all about reputation, which is stupid. Like WHO CARES WHO IS FEEDING, DO YOU WANT TO WIN THE GAME OR BE A MEME-ING DICKHEAD? 2) Players in low elo have no idea what their champions do for their team. They can play their champions and push buttons, but they don't know where to be, where to position, when to fight, how to fight, or what to build for games. Mid lane mages especially. Players only know how to ram into other champions and coinflip fights. And that's why you hear the classic oce low elo call in champ select "pick a tank!" "we have no tanks" "we need a tank" as they proceed to lock in some squishy jungler or top laner. "support, can you pick a tank?". LUL. 3) Players in low elo have very poor grasp of the **timing of the game**. An example is point #1 above. One of my teammates said "sure, we will do baron and they will take our bot lane tower!". Despite the fact that it would take the enemies 30 seconds to push to the bot lane inhibitor tower, and we have empowered recall from Baron buff, they refused to do it. Or the classic ping spam ??????????????? like "where were you?" when some idiot got caught out of position. "You could have helped me!" ahhh, no, it takes me 30 seconds to walk there. Or the classic (and this happens in all elos below about diamond 2 - i watch high elo games) a top laner is split pushing just past the halfway point of the river in one of the side lanes. His teammates are grouped in the middle of the map. Four enemies collapse on the split pusher, who is a fed champion. The splitpusher goes 1 for 1. Their teammates flame them for getting "caught out". The real issue with this is not what the splitpusher is doing, but WHAT ARE THEIR TEAM DOING WHILE THEY ARE DYING? They could have been doing baron, they could have pushed a tower. Most of the time you will see a bunch of monkeys rush to the splitpushers lane and try to collapse on the fight. And they get there 10 seconds later when the enemies have left. Another example on this is **recall timings**. In gold and platinum games are thrown away because players greeded for one inhibitor, or tower, got aced, and the enemies ran it mid and ended. Or.... tried to, when they greeded for the last nexus tower, and got aced themselves, and the first team ended the game after all. So I can understand the OP's frustration, its the end of the season, and there are winning streaks as well as losing streaks. There are monkeys, boosted monkeys, and smurfs. And there is matchmaking which cannot handle it all.

: Matchmaking
Quick scan: you have a 40% winrate in ranked, i.e. you will be matched with players below your current level. However in that one game, it's just a troll player. Unfortunately despite them sandbagging on their rank, their mmr is high enough to be placed into your game (or they are duo with someone in game), but their skill level was not high enough to carry with their NoobBunny Free build.

Don't be toxic... just /fullmute all when you get in game.

: I assume premade, and they got all upset because apparently I ksed the ekko and nasus, and Leesin was being hyper aggressive earlygame (though not particularly effective because he was really forcing those ganks and so often didn't achieve anything except leech his laner's xp), and so they were upset I wasn't completely matching him. Apparently I was only stealing kills and not letting my teammates get gold, and I was playing wrong and so apparently despite my kda and objective control, I was more of a hindrance. So they asked me to afk, as soon as I made sure each of them asked, I obliged, which made them all happy for a while, until the Pyke realized I was somewhat necessary, after which he called me a child, a trash jungler but we need a smite, and so I asked for an apology, after which they called me a useless piece of sh*t, and they told me to disconnect, so I started dancing in fountain.
10-3 up and they got salty? I would have just muted all (usually do at the start of game anyways) and keep pings on, unless they are ping spamming you. Then just go farming the jungle until a big objective comes up. Must have been gold elo, they all want to be heroes and don't understand how to be carried.
: Ha. His comment offered no constructive criticism or any thoughts as to how to improve, if you guys don’t like my video then don’t watch it.
You might like to read it again, there's plenty of constructiveness in it.
: 1. Personally I haven't had many issues with matchmaking. It's based on MMR not rank, and someone being a lower or higher rank than you doesn't necessarily mean they are all that far from you skill wise. Not to say I haven't had any, but usually that's a result of smurfing or the like, and I'm also aware that the matchmaking quality differs greatly in certain brackets. 2. It should actually help with this. Assuming they keep the new account average rank as low silver those players will effectively be placed at a lower rank now. Time will tell for sure on that one though. 3. Should also help with this, though how much remains to be seen. The idea of the new ranks and reducing the divs to 4 is to consolidate the players in each rank so that there isn't so much of a gap between the lowest and highest div. Theoretically this means the bottom divs won't be so outlier-y. There will still be those players that are just below a rank and push till they essentially luck through their promos then stay there, but they don't exactly play frequently.
1. Classic matchmaking is based on mmr, but then you have a case where a much higher elo player is playing in a role that carries the game compared to one that doesn't (e.g. support). It's just unbalanced. I'm hoping that the role rankings will fix that, IF they incorporate it into matchmaking. And sometimes OCE late at night has atrocious matchmaking, especially at the top of the ladder. Challengers vs Platinums, etc. Or a platinum game with each side having a challenger, but one side's challenger is the support, and the other's is the jungler, GG. 2. Let's hope it helps. Just finished a game where an enemy Vlad (silver 3) played like a robot. Turns out they are a new player to the game with a 39% win ratio in ranks and it's their first season. That's unfair on him, and also on us. Stomping noobs doesn't feel good, and I'm sure they don't like it either. Not to mention the enemy team will be totally frustrated. Btw the rest of us were in Bronze 1 / Silver 5. 3. I doubt whether this will change at all. The fourth division will still be a mile away from the others. It will possibly change in the **short term**. This is because of the usual boosting and players not giving a damn because they know they cannot drop in the next game, etc etc, the usual reasons why the bottom of the barrel will congregate in these divisions.

: why is draft not 24/7?
Its a good question really. Dunno why even the new accounts are not in draft pick. The novelty of blind pick was over years ago when they removed it from the last game deciders in best of fives in Korean competitions.
: In the politest possible way:
Kids love their extra bells and whistles, so Riot make a packet. As for myself, I'm only interested in skilled gameplay, not really a skins person.
: 2 New Divisions Ranked 2019
And introducing new divisions does nothing to help the real problems in ranked which are: 1) Shithouse matchmaking 2) Newbies being placed too high 3) The bottom divisions of each tier being filled with boosted monkeys (diamond 4 here you come!) What will be interesting is to see if their ranks for each **role** will improve matchmaking in general.
: Get pissed dude, nobody making you watch my video.
Or you could take criticism in a positive way and improve your gameplay. And put out some real content.
: passive trolling anjd why isnt it being dealt with
Did you mention it to the support in-game? Edit: the actual answer to the question in the title is simple: they ceebs because it would cost money to hire humans to do a better job than their flawed AI

: Once I thought SEA server was the worst
He's right though, and mute all is the only option.

: strongly agree^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I have a suggestion, [watch this video for tips](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8BtklaSWl0) and then just do your best. Probably the best video ever made on league improvement :)
