Unless you're placed into a decent bracket to begin with, there is almost no chance of you getting out of Bronze. I say this because I've been trying for the past year, looked up every guide and tried EVERYTHING. I've even had someone from Plat 5 (I think it was 5, he was from Plat anyway) tell me, after 1v1ing me (after calling me a retard in a match I vs'd him in while he was on his smurf account). I lost that game, everyone blamed everything on me, maybe I'm too old for this game and RIOT doesn't want my money, who knows. That's the way this game is starting to make me feel, and I've only recently turned 22, I still remember the days of being 18, wasn't really that long ago. I've said to many people and many people agree with me that there should be an 18+ version of league, for people who have completely developed brains and have learnt some respect, dignity, initiative, have been through their own 'stuff' in life and don't take things too personally, as you grow up you learn not to take things too personally because there is so much out there that sh*ts you to tears that you take a moment to realise how stupid it is that you, after x amount of beatings (in whichever form they come in, I'm sure you know what I'm referring to) still CARE. > > (When I say care I'm referring to having an emotional connection with) > > Which is the result of many reports that I've had for calling someone retarded after doing something stupid. > > (When I say something stupid I'm referring to them not knowing something that I know and when I call them retarded it's my way of saying that they weren't thinking at the time or they're just being completely ignorant either on purpose or because of laziness.) > > Don't get mad while you're reading this because it's probably something worth reading, even though you think someone is 'mean' over the internet doesn't mean you're instantly right, it doesn't mean everything they say can now be discredited, it doesn't mean you have to stop trying. It COULD mean they have misunderstood you or vice versa, maybe it was a miscommunication (happens across languages all the time), even within the English language miscommunications happen. It's sad that I'm able to type this without hardly thinking about it at 2:30am in the morning when I SHOULD be sleeping because I have to get ready for college in about 3 hours and then when it comes to an argument I'm instantly lost for words. > > Basically what I'm trying to say is leave your sh*t at home, don't bring it to league because everyone else will do what you're doing because it eventually becomes impossible for anyone to enjoy themselves playing this game (which is what games are made for basically), I'm a genius wow I'm not even thinking about this. Anyway to be honest with you, and if you're someone that does this kind of thing, I'm not holding a grudge because I know everyone has their own demons, I just think maybe instead of expressing to yourself through feeding someone elses game that you take some time out away from league or play normals instead of ranked, or maybe just get a bunch of guys/girls together and play some custom 5v5s or 3v3s and get it out of your system. What you are doing to the league community is the same as what an oil tanker can do to the ocean, either keep on acting the way you are (and have some compassion and understanding for what might be said back to you), or find something else to express your anger. > > Remember when you were little and found $5? If that's you then that's basically the same feeling I get when I get a game without feeders and trolls. > > Do you think it should be like that? > > Looking forward to your response. shouldn't they set the bar by how much honour you have received over the time of your playing, so its more accurately narrowing down on how honourable you are rather than your age? it would probably be more effective version of the same thing

yeah it would be nice to have something small like a badge or a unique summoner icon for acknowledgement

so is Riot planning on opening up a feedback/suggestions system or is that not an option due to how... 'assertive' people can be ("nerf ---" or "ban people like ----") you know, generally do you think that would just be dealing with the same people just in a different way.

: Ok, this is getting ridiculous riot, the salt bomb is incoming. My league litterally only crashes when I play ranked and nothing else, not normals, nothing. When I do play ranked I crash and get banned. Earlier today I played a ranked game but before that, I played a normal game to test my computer speed and ping. It was fine, nothing wrong. Then I go to play that ranked game, the game crashes twice and I lag the rest of the match (true story). We all know what came next, yep the mother f*cking 20 minute low priority queue f*cking games, I feel riot is just being royal d*cks to me and not allowing me to play ranked and improve on my tier at the moment, because I'm stuck and forced to play normals for the rest of my league life. Riot get on fixing this problem, because it's getting beyond a simple complaint, its affecting me and lots of other people on their enjoyment in LoL.

Tomycins (OCE)
: So because RIOT is increase the cost of RP now because of the weak Australian dollar that means as soon as the Australian dollar increases in value again we expect to see a better deal for RP again? Or will RIOT instead decide that instead of decreasing the cost of RP in Australia come up with another excuse to keep the price of RP high? This also begs the question why is the OCE part of RIOT not run independent of its US parent company? Another question that bugs me is IF this increase is because of a poor currency exchange rate why is the cost of RP in AUD instead of USD?

Mindstar (OCE)
: Operating costs in AUD are only a part of the overall operating cost for the OCE server. Australia is actually one of the more expensive places in the world to build out presence (cost of hardware + bandwidth is significantly higher). For this reason, we actually host a lot of the OCE infrastructure in the USA, with only latency sensitive parts residing locally. This gives us the benefit of being able to provide players with low ping to our game servers, without the expensive cost we would incur if the entire platform infrastructure was local. Even for hardware purchased locally, the currency risk you mention is often built in at a supplier level - ie. they take into account the cost of purchasing a piece of equipment overseas and delivering it to the AU market. That means that a reasonable portion of our operational costs for our platform actually are in USD. Even though they are much lower than if they were in AUD, we are impacted by shifts in relative currency value.

Gehirn (OCE)
: Hi JMeeko, **TL;DR: Your recent Leave/AFK history led to being Leaverbusted after this game. Leaverbuster picking you up here is intended, just unfortunate that you got busted for this game given your intentions.** I took some time to check out your profile and figure out exactly what happened. As for why you were hit by Leaverbuster: - in the last few months you've been detected has having left or AFK'd in 2% of your games. It may not seem like much but it is above the normal rate for unintended disconnects. - the last game you were detected as AFK in was a ranked game, which are rated much more harshly than normals. Given your recent history, this was enough to put you into the lowest punishment threshold for Leaverbuster which is a 5 min low priority queue for a few games. As for why you were detected as AFK in the game you described: - Along with just being afk at fountain and not moving, staying in your base and not contributing for a significant amount of time may also be detected as AFK under the Leaverbuster system. Unfortunately, in cases like yours this can mean getting pinged for AFK while letting the enemy push into your base to end a 3v5 asap even if you're moving around. I've been on both sides of this situation and can understand why you'd want to do that. You might think that AFK detection should only look for players who strictly leave their champion in place and never move for a certain period of time, but arguments to the contrary are common: > - ["...maybe Leaver Buster should take action on people who dont leave the fountain for a certain amount of time, rather than just people who arent moving."](http://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/24d6xa/if_the_leaverbuster_is_working_as_intended_why_is/) > - ["Can the new LeaverBuster detect an afk if he doesnt actually leave but just sit in base trolling?"](http://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/2nl8d1/question_can_the_new_leaverbuster_detect_an_afk/) > - ["Riot needs to find a way to detect "fountain sitters" who are just clicking to avoid being kicked for AFK."](http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/v8AUq6G6-leaverbuster-kick-afk-detection-system) So in these cases, Leaverbuster isn't broken. Rather it is just as sharp as it needs to be when detecting malicious actions and trolls running around their own Nexus to avoid AFK detection.

Maraudaur (OCE)
: The biggest reason we don't do this is because of match making. Leaving/dcing from a game doesn't make you a worse player. If we heavily reduced MMR every time someone left a game (whether intentionally or unintentionally) we would be really messing up the match making system. This would result in matching making becoming more and more inaccurate, which would impact not only the game that a leave happens but all subsequent games where this really good player is matched with a bunch of players that aren't in his league. No one likes being stomped in lane and game. Another key point to keep in mind is, if you leave a game you already lose MMR and LP (because you most likely lose the 4v5). So leavers already don't care about that enough to stop them from leaving. The problem we are trying to fix is Leavers, I believe the low priority queue is actually a great deterrent (even better than bans). Let me explain what it does and why I think its so good. This is what happens to a player that gets punished by low priority queue; Before each game they queue up for they must wait 10 mins to 1 hour before they actually begin queuing for a game. They get this punishment for 5 games. This means before each game for 5 games you must wait 10 mins - 1 hour before you even join a queue for the game mode you want. If you don't improve (i.e. if you dont start leaving less) then the punishments increase in time and games. e.g. 5 games 10 minute low priority queue ----> 5 games 20 minute priority queue -----> 5 games 30 minute priority queue ---> 10 games 20 minute low priority queue ----> etc etc (potentially wasting hours just waiting to play) Now why do I like this so much more than bans? If you account gets banned then you just go play on a smurf or other account until the ban is over. But the low priority queue is not a certain time you need to wait (days or weeks) so you cant just wait it out on another account. It is designed so the person that is being punished has to play through the punishment (wait through looooooong queues) if they want to play on their main AND if they don't improve they will keep getting hit with harsher punishments. Happy to hear your thoughts.

Leaving/dcing from a game doesn't make you a worse player. If we heavily reduced MMR every time someone left a game (whether intentionally or unintentionally) we would be really messing up the match making system. This would result in matching making becoming more and more inaccurate, which would impact not only the game that a leave happens but all subsequent games where this really good player is matched with a bunch of players that aren't in his league. No one likes being stomped in lane and game. > > Another key point to keep in mind is, if you leave a game you already lose MMR and LP (because you most likely lose the 4v5). So leavers already don't care about that enough to stop them from leaving. > > The problem we are trying to fix is Leavers, I believe the low priority queue is actually a great deterrent (even better than bans). Let me explain what it does and why I think its so good. This is what happens to a player that gets punished by low priority queue; > > Before each game they queue up for they must wait 10 mins to 1 hour before they actually begin queuing for a game. They get this punishment for 5 games. This means before each game for 5 games you must wait 10 mins - 1 hour before you even join a queue for the game mode you want. If you don't improve (i.e. if you dont start leaving less) then the punishments increase in time and games. > > e.g. 5 games 10 minute low priority queue ----> 5 games 20 minute priority queue -----> 5 games 30 minute priority queue ---> 10 games 20 minute low priority queue ----> etc etc (potentially wasting hours just waiting to play) > > Now why do I like this so much more than bans? If you account gets banned then you just go play on a smurf or other account until the ban is over. But the low priority queue is not a certain time you need to wait (days or weeks) so you cant just wait it out on another account. It is designed so the person that is being punished has to play through the punishment (wait through looooooong queues) if they want to play on their main AND if they don't improve they will keep getting hit with harsher punishments. > > Happy to hear your thoughts. must be frustrating having to address the problem so many times and consistently end up doing circles due to the system being too sensitive for you to be more strict edit: I just noticed your name is maraudaur not marauder hah
