: I wasn't AFK. I just let my "friend" play on my account... I mean I wasn't the one talking. I told him to mute chat and not talk...
Account sharing is bad, using offensive language is bad, arguing with other players is bad. Avoid these three things and you'll be fine, but you already knew that.

Tfw everything that ever happens on league of legends is other people's fault, and you totally aren't becoming delusional and making up lies to forcibly justify your own actions/ shortcomings.

: That's completely fine, but League is well and truly a **team** game and some people would prefer to have as much communication as possible in order to have the best teamwork. Sure you can just use pings but can't we just step it a little? Those who don't want it can just turn off voice chat and go ahead as normal, that way I don't see any issues.
Why don't those who want voice chat go ahead and use any of the voice chat systems available to them? Why would Riot implement something like that, unless it was a feature you had to pay for?

I personally would not welcome this change, and would mute all the players at the start of the game to avoid the constant stream of abuse that would replace; ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

: aww that sucks, well hopefully you won't be discouraged from support roams because it's one of the greatest highlights of playing support outside of sick engages/disengage during lategame teamfighting.
Maybe once I get out of bronze, I'm often being ordered to return to my marksmen as if they are the only reason I exist. It's like, bruv, I already put 20 minutes into that fat, disrespectful child, and my efforts have lead to him being fed af. It's not my fault he roams the enemy jungle while I'm helping out our laners. Few things bother me as much as getting flamed when you're only trying to be helpful. It's all worth it for that one marksmen in ten that actually understands the game. Those games are bliss.
: Create a Button for Player Movement That Won't Attack If You Click on Enemy
I barely understand what you're trying to say dude... if you want to move towards an enemy, you can click the ground in front or behind them. People who use attack move, use it to kite better? That's the reason I use it? What do you mean 'without just right clicking everywhere'? What would the button do, exactly? You'd press this button to be able to walk on top of people?

: Is matchmaking a bit goofy for anyone else right now?
Yeah I've seen heaps of posts in the last few weeks on this topic. In my ARAMs I'm being matched with teams that are mostly gold, despite being unranked, and recently in a ranked game I was supporting a platinum Ezreal on a team of golds. The mid laners hit level 15 when I was level 9. I didn't belong in that game and I just got abused for about half an hour. I'm happy to just play with bronze players, ty xD Also, fun fact. Platinum Ezreals can flame WHILE they cs. Truly impressive shit.

: this speaks to me on a spiritual level as another support/fill main. Also it's really funny when the jungler is being toxic and isn't ganking and the toplaner is complaining about never getting a gank, and so you wait till both botlanes need to back and then you fake a back and then run full speed to another lane to do a support gank and it tilts the enemy team to a whole other dimension. I remember ganking toplane as mobi boots janna a few months ago, popping a shield in a clutch fight, exhausting, slowing and then knocking up the enemy toplaner and they died and swore in allchat about why the hell was janna toplane and like 10s later they just disconnected in what i assume was some sort of coincidence.
Just the other day, our Malphite and Syndra swapped lanes to deal with a top lane teemo and a mid lane Zed. My marksmen wanted to back and I only had 650 gold and didn't want to back till I could get my sightstone. I roamed mid and sat in the bot side brush. Our mid lane malphite just started spam pinging me, over and over and over again, then Zed decided to move up the lane and make a try for malphite, so I burst forth from my brush with an E-Q-W, Zed began to back off, fearing the combined force of Malphite and Sona... but then Malphite disengaged, and I had to burn my flash to escape with my life. Malphite: f'ing noob support, just stay in your own f'ing lane and stop ruining my lane. Ezreal: Sona wtf? why did you go mid that's just stupid? Sona: :)
: Blood Moon and the skin line for Iron Inquisitor Kayle, Cursed Revenant Noc, Black Scourged Singed and Undertaker Yorick (dunno what they call the line, but it's supposedly based loosely on Dark Souls).
Fiora, Lucian and Sona would all be awesome additions to that skin line!
: Your unwritten rules for climbing in ranked.
Always be positive. Never respond to negativity with negativity. As a support main, the brunt of the teams flame is often aimed at myself, even if my marksmen and I are doing well, if someone starts flaming the support, and the support responds with either nothing, or something innocent and light hearted suddenly the flamer looks like a massive twat, and you aren't a bad person. :)

: Has anyone been employed/contacted by Riot by posting art here?
I'm really embarrassed that I've forgotten the persons name... But DhaMa was a champion concept that was posted here and later went on to inspire Kindred's visual design. So kind of. I imagine most people that aren't affiliated with riot would submit their art to riot more privately, to avoid their hard work being stolen.
: I completely get you dude. I play tank a lot because I don't trust my ally gragas or maokai to go tank even when they are the most viable tank. I've gone tank fizz and nidalee (some of the weird ones) because I know they will always go damage xD Used to live off ARAM, still is my favourite mode.
Thank you for this comment, I really appreciate it :) It might be a little more meta than tank Fizz, but I've often gone tank Evelynn in my ARAMs. Invisible disruption tanks are fun! Haha Specially if you get a rylais somewhere around the middle of your build. So terrifying :P

Getting things you already own stops me from buying chests whenever I consider it. I guess that was the entire point? Slowly collecting key shards and unlocking a chest to receive a champion you already own also sucks pretty hard.

: WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO ABANDON CHAMP SELECT WITHOUT PENALTY!
While I find the general tone of this post to be more 'in your face' than I would have worded it, I recently found myself supporting a platinum Ezreal. I am unranked. I did atrociously as Sona in a Varus Malz lane, and I got flamed the hardest I had ever been flamed before. Like, I'm a support main, I'm used to brushing off hatred all the time. Yet there I was dying to Varus Qs and voidlings, all the while trying my hardest to do everything I could for this Ezreal. His abuse cut me so deep, because I knew he was right. He's platinum. I had no reason to be his support, why the hell was I put through that? All I learnt was that platinum Ezreals can flame you while they farm.
: :) Some games 500 isn't that bad, I can play ESO on that just fine for example (and even when my newt is fine, ping is 300 cause of distance), the biggest struggle is when it is fluctuating :P Being a support main most of the champs I play aren't too bad at ping a little bit higher than normal, so thankfully I don't have that trouble too much. ADC would be a nightmare.
Back on my old laptop I could only play champs I could use in a high ping environment and do alright with. Gnar, Ezreal, Evelynn, Sona and Lux were basically the only champions I played for most of a year haha
: Thats the entire problem though "all random" it isnt the better pick on the day, or the better play on the day, it is jsut luck. you cant get a ranking system out of luck alone.
I said I would welcome all comments, positive and negative, but I'm really sick to death of being told ARAM is all about luck. Lux isn't a strong pick if you can't land a skillshot. Even if it's a good lux, she's not going to be worth anything if she doesn't know how to position in team fights. In a ranked system, the higher you went up the ladder, the less the 'lucky' picks would mean. Notice anything about the strong ARAM champs? they are mostly the ones that dominate solo queue bronze. Blitzcrank. Zyra. Sona. Fiddle. People that know these champions and know their weaknesses know how to play against them. That doesn't change just because the floor is a different colour.
: While there is a little skill, making a ranking system for a game mode based solely on luck is kinda dumb. Fyi tt ranked has been around for yonks... i remember playing it back in 2010 on my old account.
The game mode is not based around luck. Honestly it makes me so angry when I read people saying that. The heart of ARAM is team fighting. Fighting well as a team makes up for the enemy having stronger picks than you. Utilizing your crowd control, focussing the right targets. The game is not won in champion select. I've been on the rough end of so many 4v5s that my team has managed to turn around. I've been in a game where the enemy team had a Fiddlesticks, a Lux, a Xerath and a Ziggs. After ten minutes of being boned my team had an actual conversation about what we could do. The more informed players shared advice on itemization, and our tank laid out a plan of engage. This happened in less than a minute. We ended up winning that game, and I promise you it had nothing to do with luck, it was five people working together. I'm aware that tt ranked has been around for awhile, yet I have read some of the posts regarding its creation while gathering information on this idea. It was heavily argued over, and many, many people made the comment "why make a ranked mode out of a casual game that the champions aren't even balanced around?"

: When you see Nasus, Nautilus, Amumu, and Malphite in ARAM go full AP...
Full AP Nasus I'm all for, I hate playing against him, but boy have I seen him do work. But yeah, when our only tank builds full AP, and is like "it's supposed to be fun, guys!" Yep. Because 0/10 is fun.
: Explain To Me How Ranked Works
I am unranked, so take this with as much credibility as you please. You asked about how you can get to silver, a friend of mine who recently placed gold gave me some advice on this recently. He said the most important part of climbing out of the lower ELOs is wave management. If you don't know how to freeze a lane, or how to build up a massive minion wave, you'll have a harder time climbing. He went on to say that knowing wether you want to push or be pushed in is a massive part of higher tier play. The example he gave me was Fizz. He said as soon as you get into lane, focus on pushing Fizz under his tower and try to delay his level 3 for as long as possible. Before he hits 3, try to bring the push into the centre of the lane and freeze as much as you can. Fizz's level 3 is very strong, and leaving the lane like this allows your Jungler to gank for you, but also allows you to retreat if Fizz's jungler comes for you. Once Fizz has 6, it can be very dangerous to trade with him, or to even be near his tower, from here on you'd want to be farming under your tower. Just make sure to follow him if he roams :) That's just one example of wave management, but hopefully it points you in the right direction :)

: if it wasn't for the risk of being reported, I'd legitimately suggest that 'mundo support' is possibly one of the strongest low elo support picks if you want to carry. You aren't really a support when you play mundo support though. You are essentially a second toplaner since mundo gets all his damage from base, just rush tanky support items and run around killing the enemy. You don't have cc and you can't peel but you have alot of damage and you are very gold efficient and are pretty decent in outpoking most mage supports and engaging on you as a tank support isn't the best idea and once you get a few items you can just pop off and carry.
Best thing about being a part of a duo bot lane, you get to practice these interesting picks for weeks, try taking into ranked and get flamed by your team until someone dodges because they can't see the glorious potential of a Urgot Shen bot lane xD
: The Singed player DID get permabanned, and it wasn't for not playing the meta, it was because he was an arsehole and forced his role every game he played. He was an utter fuckwit, not caring about his team at all, and blatantly disrespected his teams constantly. That is why he got permabanned, not because he "broke the meta". Yet you could "break the meta" but it exists for a reason, support is the only consistently viable option for the 5th player, it's the only option that doesn't dilute EXP and Gold harshly, and is available for making up for what a team lacks instead of doubling/tripling down on something it doesn't need extra of. ------------------------------------------------------------ You say Tanks are doing their job? Strange, because I still see Rammus' with 5000 health and 400+ armour getting killed by Vayne's in less than 2 seconds. Tanks are not able to do their job when they die so quickly no matter what they build. And they aren't. The only "Tanks" that are surviving is the stupid fucking assassins who are building tank like Yasuo. All the real tanks like Malphite, Rammus, Zac, Sejuani, etc are getting melted in seconds, they die faster than ADCs half the fucking time. ---------------------------------------------------------- Assassins on the other hand are in a fairly decent spot right now except for a few. (like say Yasuo who after buying {{item:3046}} {{item:3031}} can build tank and dominate with no opposition) LeBlanc needs some tweaking, her kite is too far off scale with how quickly she can chain her chains in succession. Zed is quite manageable especially if you take {{summoner:3}} . Rengar is fantastic! He has excellent trade offs of engage with risk and damage output. Honestly if you don't have time to shield or whatever that's more on your lack of reflexes than the game's problem.
: The biggest thing to consider is that it isn't an easy fix for everyone. Of course if they're having connection issues every other game that's on them and they need to get it sorted out, but more often than not it's something unexpected. If it's something like a family member downloading or the like then usually they do get it fixed in a few minutes and it's not an issue. For example I live regional as well, and have shitty Telstra ADSL 2+ with no soon hope of getting NBN because my area has "the good copper". Our internet isn't great on a good day (though fine for playing League) but every now again spikes for no reason. It's usually only for a minute or two and maybe only once a week, but it does happen in game from time to time (not at all often). It's something we can't do anything about, and that Telstra won't, and I'm hardly going to stop playing League for an issue that occurs so rarely. So when I ping in game that I have 9000+ ms, I'm simply saying, I can't do jack shit for a little while, not "omg this lag is so frustrating this happens all the time this sucks omgosh". I'm simply trying to communicate to my team that shit is going down on my end and I'm going to be powerless to help them for a bit. Give it a minute, ping the 32 ms and we are all good and back to playing. Lag is incredibly frustrating for the people playing on it, because unlike the rest of the team which only has the "we're down a player" frustration, those with the lag have that, and "I can't play this game that I enjoy" and "I'm letting other people down" and "If this goes on too long I might be punished for it" (even though for rare cases like mine a punishment is never on the table).

: Quick Question: What is your favourite skin line?
I did really like the project skins once, but Project Leona, Ashe, Fiora and Ekko kinda put me off that line. Whereas blood moon is the opposite, I don't really like any of the current bloodmoon skins, but I'm super excited for these new ones. Also, more blood stone and program skins would be cool. Program Lissandra is a gorgeous piece of work.
: Hey there, As of this post LVOC is considered an allowed tool, but as with any modification to your client there is always a risk that Riot may one day decide these kinds of modifications are no longer allowed. Use at your own risk, I personally do currently use LVOC (Well, did before LCU)
Thank you very much for your response :) Basically the same thing I was told in the ticket I submitted, I'm just left not being sure if hearing Japanese fiddlesticks going "HOHOHOHOHOHOHO" for a few weeks will be worth losing access to all the skins I've bought if my account gets banned lol.

Taliyah's sound files are also a bit odd, I've noticed sometimes when I'm comboing the noise from her Q will stop, or continue on after I only shoot one rock because of worked ground. I also hear the noise for the start of her E randomly sometimes while using W and Q.

: Found a post involving Riot WookieeCookie on whether LVOC was acceptable to use, and it seems to have come back positive, can I get further clarification on this? Riot WookieeCookie; If all you've done is changed to the Japanese language pack then you will be fine. Let's say in the future, if for some reason we did decide to officially stop the use of other languages in game and were prepared to do a ban wave, then we would start with a warning announcement first to let everyone know. But, that's a big IF we ever decide to do that. Although we don't officially support using other region's voice packs, a lot of Rioters do it here in the office too. Lots of Weabo Rioters were very excited for the Japan launch and all those anime voice overs :D
Riot Sargonas You are correct. I'm not sure why this support representative gave this answer, and I've asked for someone to look into it. That said, this is NOT why the person in question was banned. It was for a mod/tool detection as they said, but it had nothing at all to do with a VO swap. That's all I can really say on the matter though, obviously. Forum response I am in no way defending OP's friend, however the Rioter clearly says "modification of voices and language is a modification of our client." He then proceeds to say that's the reason he got banned for. However, in the first screenshot, the Rioter says that OP's friend was banned for exploiting bugs. Why is there such an inconsistency? Riot Sargonas I honestly don't know. I'm not involved with European player support, so I can only speak to our rules and policies on what is/isn't ok to use, but not to the actions of the Player Support staff. All I can say is, sounds like there was some communication issues there between support and the player in question and I've pinged some folks who can hopefully help address it. Hopefully you can understand why I'm worried.

: Most games that I'm in where my team is complaining "omg tanks are so op, rito pls." I'll press tab and look at what items my team have bought.

There is also a stigma against marksmen shooting tanks, I've noticed? Mages counter marksmen, tanks counter mages and marksmen counter tanks, yet if a marksmen ever starts laying into a tank, they'll often get flamed by their own team. "FOCUS THE CARRIES YOU IDIOT" "Uh, well... I'm currently Garen's villain and I can't tank his true damage while trading with the enemy carries, so I'm actually going to kite backwards away from Garen." "NAH YOU'RE AN IDIOT I DIVED THEIR BACKLINE WHERE WAS MY TEAM REPORT THE ADC." It's always sunny in soloqueue.

: Tanks are overtuned atm but idk how you can complain about assassin as support when supports have more options than ever to peel for and help their ADC. The issue isn't assassins because a support with a decent reaction speed should exhaust or shield/heal/cleanse their ADC or CC the assassin before they get 100-0. The real issue is tanks being so strong damage wise that they can shrug off your stuns and heals and just keep smacking down your ADC and also mages like Syndra can kill ADC as fast as an assassin from a far range (though I think Syndra got nerfed in that regard).
