Hey mate In all honesty - just pocket the cash and keep saving. Get yourself a nice desktop PC (which you can build pretty good for even a little less then $1000) Try checking out local custom rig builders like [CPL Online](http://cplonline.com.au/) [Centrecom ](http://www.centrecom.com.au/) Centrecom also have a handy tool for building a PC step by step that you should check out.

What was your rank last season?
: RIOT, your community is screaming out your name, please talk to us.
MMR reset working as intended. I don't get why people are so upset about having to, you know, play the game to earn their spot in the ladder. What would be the point of people receiving a new season and just getting starting back to where they were beforehand? If players are good they will get to the spot on the ladder deserving of their skill.
: Wow riot rank system
If you are good you will ascend to your appropriate level of skill.

: Surrender way too much in low elo
Personally I believe the surrender introduces a level of toxicity into games. Whether or not a game is win-able is completely subjective, therefore the statement that you can tell whether or not a game is going to be a waste of time is false. Unfortunately the option of surrendering introduces anger to a lot of players who get into the mindset of 'Well I'm not doing great so I don't want to play anymore' It amazes me how people can't still view their achievements in a winning game. Great K/D/A based on the circumstances? Did a fantastic job with my CS this match? Wow, this other person was actually pretty good and I could learn from them? These views don't exist and it's a sad element of the game.
: Turning on the option to never play with someone again
Generally, if you are in a constant state of being surrounded by negative, rude or insulting people there is a good chance that you are contributing to this. Maybe work on how you interact with your team mates and see if you can create positive atmospheres where people are hesitant to turn to 'Asshole' behaviour.
: Malz Ult is Bullshit
I love Malz He's the perfect example of a legacy champ overtaken by the change in direction/design on behalf of Riot some time ago. I've never really had any issues of frustration like you are experiencing because I find most of Malzahar's power comes from his E & Q (which mince people with a good chunk of AP) Try re-focusing your gameplay into those abilities. FOR THE VOID!

Thanks for taking the time to follow up on the thread. Honestly, you guys did a fantastic job and it's unique & encouraging to see an international organization to actually invest time, effort & money into oceania. I think I was way more critical then most punters, just due to my professional background. It will be great to see what else is in store for 2016 (hopefully plenty of Melbourne activities!)

Lol how long has it been since the patch release again? Do you not think you are being just a little quick to judge the entire content overhaul? LoL isn't the main MOBA I play btw but I still give it a fair shake. By the way, your assessment of DOTA is incorrect - that isn't the case with heroes at all.

: Does anyone here play DOTA 2
Hey Mate You are going to find quite a bit of general bias against Dota on these boards simply because its a competitor. I play League, Dota 2 & heroes of the storm. I like all of them for their own unique charm. I'll list out some of my personal pros & cons with Dota 2 but it's free so why not fire it up and give it a go yourself? **Pros** **Meta - **way more fresh options for team comp & lane distribution then league. WAY MORE. You can run tri-lanes, multiple types of heroes in the different lanes (Mid can be any type of hero basically and can be a duo or tri lane if you want). **Jungling -** Jungling is a lot more fun & is more involved then League (creep stacking, pulling etc) Depending on the overall strat of the game it's actually open to you whether you are going to roam, gank or just farm like mad getting that sweet sweet gold for a mid/late game advantage. **Champ Skills - **These are of a larger variety in Dota 2 and heroes aren't simply a recycle of similar abilities that was a mainstay in league for a long time. I say it was a past thing because some champs are starting to get released with some fresh ideas in the past 6 or so months. **Laning - **Laning is a little bit more involved due to the fact you have to manage your mana and creeps actually hit hard early game. **Community - **Like all multiplayer games and especially MOBAS their are elements of toxicity there. However in my experience I've found the community to be much more patient & forgiving then League. In the last 5 matches I've played of summoners rift, either my team or the enemy team have had at least one person wanting to surrender when someone gets first blood and then transform into a shit fight until the surrender vote finally gets its way. **Custom Games - **Dota 2's customs games are incredibly fun and varied. Want to play tower defense? Want to do a coop survival match? Want to see what its like to vs Insane difficulty AI? Want to play 10v10? Want to play pudge wars? it's all there. Heroes - all characters in the game are free **L00t - **You can get a large amount of free cosmetic items to the game just by playing matches (I won an entire set for a hero just a few days ago) **Items -** A large amount of the games balance is built into itemisation (which a lot of devs forget when looking at the design of heroes) and plays a huge part in the flow of the game. I list this as pro because it creates variety & creative builds and prevents the game getting stale. Client, replays & statistics - Dota 2 has the best client out of all the MOBAS since the current one they are using. Dota 2 also has a great replay & viewing system. Finally, your statistics in how you play (farming, roles etc) are all tracked put onto your profile for yourself and others to see. **Cons** **Difficulty -** Dota 2 is a very difficult to learn game. They have tried really hard to get around this by very comprehensive tutorials and coaching programs. The curve to get 'good' at the game however is still very steep and can be a trial by fire at the expense of team mates as you learn the game **Animations -** turning & last hitting on certain characters varies by a huge amount and can be frustrating to get the hang of. It can take a long time to learn individual character movements. **Game Design -** I still get mind blown sometimes when I see how long stuns last for in the game (among other things) a lot of this however is countered by good item building. **PUG problems -** Some really insane lane compositions or strats are EASILY countered in Dota 2. Unfortunately you are going to receive little to no help from most random matches. Up against KoL & Axe in a top lane and they've destroyed your second tower in 10 mins? Tough biscuits. Getting ganked non stopped by a stealth character in your own jungle? Too bad. I've had the same experience in League however. **Hero design problems -** If you vs competent enemies their are a handful of heroes that are absolutely easy just to shut off and make redundant through simple means including gems of true sight, wards & dust. All of these are relatively in-expensive vs the reward they bring. In terms of eSports Dota 2 also suffers from a similar problem that League has, with certain kits being so strong that they are picked every match. **Popularity -** Dota 2 is quite popular, but you are going to find the queue takes longer to pop then League. However, the connecting time & the loading of the game is far better done then LoL (again, due to the client). **Game Length - **Matches can drag on for FAR too long in my opinion. This has just been the evolution of this genre of game and I think it's going to continue to move towards shorter matches in terms of what players & eSports viewers want. **The biggest con - **Techies are in the game. Like I said, I enjoy both games and I would really like more people to appreciate the aspects that they both bring to the industry. Heroes of the storm is also a fun MOBA and I encourage you to check it out. The only issue I've found with Heroes is the blizzard OP of the Month style balance.

: Pls help asap :(
Hey Dude! Have you tried giving the old hard drive a thorough clean using programs such as cc cleaner? https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner Give that a run through and should get rid of files that are eating your RAM for breakfast. I highly recommend using cc cleaner on a regular basis to keep your HD nice and tidy :) Otherwise, check what processes are running in the background of your PC (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) and see if you can end ones that are chewing through your memory. EDIT: Also, forgot the classic - defrag your hard drive, you will be surprised at how great this and cc cleaner improve your PC performance if it's old & messy.

: [GUIDE] How to organise your first online or live tournament
Great Post....the only things I'd add from my experience are; A) Don't do it alone _I was shocked at how much easier these things are with a solid passionate team_ B) If you are a rookie and starting out...don't measure your success by monetary gain
: OCE server skin.
Discrimination, really? Being a bit entitled OP. Riot do a pretty bloody good job here in Oz both managing our community & building up our eSports circuit to try and get it to be self sufficient like other areas. A lot of other game companies wouldn't do this. Just pay for the skin, it's not like your life will be negatively affected without it.

: TOURNAMENT THIS WEEKEND, NEED PLAYERS
I'd include a lot more details regarding your tournament in your OP. What are the prizes you are referring to? What are the who/what/when/where/hows of the tournie? Who is the team? And so on. Good luck but I'd definitely write your post out like an advert for the tournie!
: So Riot......I hear you ban these people. Or is it just all talk and no action??
Don't call people out in the forums mate. If that was allowed we would literally have nothing but these kinds of threads.
: OK what is the deal with Ranked?
Always remember that the behavior and attitudes within ranked are all subjective - I find just being open with communication and positively encouraging my team helps a great deal. Relax when people get testy and try to encourage them. I play by the mantra "killing someone with kindness" and It works out OK.

Especially when you blame your team for letting your abilities go on cooldown when you die. I think you need to work on this point a bit. It can be really hard to ascertain whether enemies will get away or win a duel. Quite a lot of players will really want to secure that kill for the team even if it means using an ability or even more rarely, an ultimate. You should try to view these situations as more of a team-effort rather then an individual getting the kill.
: Im done
Hey Mate... First of all I'd recommend taking these feelings to a trained professional who can work with you through the immediate problems. If you genuinely are feeling suicidal please reach out to a loved one or your school Councillor and visit https://www.lifeline.org.au/ 13 11 14 The best part of what you've written is that it's obvious you have goals - a very important step in turning into an adult. Now the other great thing is guess what, League isn't going anywhere and the team based right here in Oz are constantly building and developing new & exciting opportunities for players to get involved in the game professionally which will be ongoing for many years to come. I know it's easier said then done, but mate, slow it all down and take a deep breath. Don't get hung up on social skills or academic success to the point where it affects your mental health, I can guarantee it all gets better & one day you will more then likely chuckle at how worried you were about all of these things. I hope this has been of some benefit and if you ever want to add me in game to chat and vent about some things - please do so.
