: Hi Shes my Princess, As mentioned before in other similar threads, most permabans are not the result of a single instance of negative behaviour. I had a look through your account and in the last 12 months, you have received 5 (6 including this perma) punishments for negative behaviour. Every time you recieve a punishment, your account gets escalated and based on your record, you were on very thin ice already after 3 chat restrictions and 2 time bans. It was your behaviour as a whole that resulted in your permaban, though it was the reports by players in your last game that tipped you over the edge. I would also like to note that the assumption that Riot has a list of god-level "no-no" terms is not entirely correct. The automated system is populated based on reports by other players and the community as a whole has deemed (through their reports) that some things are not acceptable. Hope that gives you and others enough context!
No worries, thanks for your time. Shit result, but what can you do. Have a good one.

: Falsely claiming to be a Riot employee, regardless of how it's done, is taken very seriously and, if I'm not mistaken, generally leads to an instant perma-ban. I would definitely recommend sending the original screenshot(s) to [Riot support](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us) with a (short) description of the situation.
It's weird. Six years and I'd never come across anything like this, then twice in the span of three days. No idea what's changed to allow people to use that font, but I can definitely see it being used for some bad stuff. I'll do that, though. Cheers. Edit: Submitting a ticket is a huge hassle. Keeps telling me to post in the appropriate board before wasting their time with it, so I guess it'll die here. I'm sure they know about the font anyway - I'm just hoping the dude in this case is dealt with.

: Totally agree. Riot needs to put bias on support roles in lower MMR as the chances of having an affect on your team is lower than at ~high gold/low plat. I can have real impact on the game and win a lot easier in Plat that at the lower end because as you say - players have a clue and support is taken seriously by the team. This flex thing is totally messed up. I got placed into bronze (down from plat), then proceed to win 16 straight games to move back into Silver. Now I have this bullshit "1 more game to get real rank", and I win it and "You are now Bronze 2". Seriously? I got penalised......FOR PLAYING WELL... AS SUPPORT! The data science team needs to work with program design - because the system is TOTALLY FLAWED.
What we need is a support players union! Power to the people! Seriously though hahahaha sounds like you got worked over real bad by the system :)

: All Riot need to do is to hire some people who play the game and know who is strong and needs nerfs, and also who is weak and needs buffed, mabey we should have a reward system for telling riot who to buff and who to nerf
Go for a walk kid. That or actually get good at the game and stop whingeing haha.

: Vlad is an amazing low elo champion due to his high lane sustain, in built gank protection through sanguine pool, aoe waveclear/point and click low cd farming, good trading potential and fantastic late game scaling. What more could you want? source: used vlad amongst others to get out of bronze/silver/gold
Also, in saying that, Vlad's one of those champions at the moment who gets worse the higher elo you go. Assuming you mean Vlad top lane, there are a lot of high elo priority picks for top lane which simply perform better as a champion than he does; fiora and gangplank are two that come to mind that not only have high kill potential in lane but can split push better and are debateably more valuable to a team. But in lower elo go right ahead fam, he's great to rise a few ranks!

: Hey Joshmt. I actually think Khazix isnt in such a bad spot right now. For example I think that khazix is a much better vs tanks and can situationally be played well toplane. right now i am playing khazix jungle and lane. I dont think he is S tier by any measure but if I play well can definitely carry. I think the pen on Maw made his much more viable and the upcoming buffs will help him out. what example do you think he is lacking at the moment?
I don't think it's as much kha'zix being underpowered than it is rengar being overpowered. But that's been mentioned enough everywhere so I'm sure it's being looked into :)
: If you want to get even angrier, Cho's Q has 50% greater range, a larger area, now knocks up for the same time Swain roots, and slows for 1.5s too! Fun!
There seems to be some anger about it on reddit, watching it closely with a grin
: Let's Talk About Swain
Hey thur, Swain main here myself! Played around ~500 games with Swain in ranked across s3-s5 and have had similar winrates, which is actually pretty cool to see another Swain doing pretty good. I only just read the patch notes and _good god_ does that sound stupid. Nevermove was already hard enough to hit as it was given that: a) Nevermove has a cast time, delay, and distinct audio to tell you to move; and b) You're extremely susceptible to all kinds of hard cc whilst moving in to set beatrice onto a (keyword) rooted target should W hit (I've been hit by at least a few hundred Ahri charms trying to follow up after nevermove). Two seconds isn't even that long given that it's a **_DELAYED ROOT_** as opposed to a stun. If they're looking at ranked win % as a justification for the nerf, he's not even above 50% in the source you've cited above, which is crazy. He's not being used competitively at the moment with the control mage and early jungle meta (combined with broken top laners), so I'm wondering why they've decided to do this... "When Swain’s good, his dominance over the lane borders on abusive - and Swain’s pretty good right now" (Patch 5.24 Notes, 2015). I don't feel like the mastery rework favors Swain more than any other solo laner, and this nerf is just _too_ harsh. For a skill that only gets some love after torment and decrepify when the game's already in it's mid to late stages, a _FIFTY PERCENT REDUCTION IN THE CC DURATION AT RANK ONE WHERE IT STAYS FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE GAME_ is just too much. We've undoubtedly played more Swain than the goose who's plucked this ridiculous nerf out of the basket of bad ideas at Rito HQ, and despite the fact we don't have access to the microdata they do, I, too, feel like it's too much. You've killed my three-year love for Swain in the past five minutes, but I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who finds it stupid. {{champion:50}} {{item:3070}}

: Hey man. Plat 3 top lane main here. Honestly for starters, you should just pick 3-4 _differently styled_ champions to work with and aim to get as good as you possibly can be with them. When I say differently styled champions, I mean ones that aren't all the same both mechanic and counter-wise. **What you want is versatility on a relatively small scale with champions you're reasonably comfortable with** when playing, especially in draft mode such as ranked. For instance, there's no use learning vladimir, swain, elise and ryze as your only comfort picks, as they're all similar in the fact that they're ability power poke styled champions. Versatility is the key to success in most cases. So when you can see that the other team has locked in a teleport top lane fizz with ignite, instead of being forced to play a sustain, poke champions like the ones above (especially in the current morellonomicon meta), you're free to go with another practiced comfort pick that at least goes even matchup-wise. My personal comfort picks while learning tops were rumble, singed, vladimir and renekton. It's honestly up to you, but I reccommend learning a few different champions with their mechanics in order to never be in an extremely unfavourable position before the game's even begun. Hope this has helped.
Obviously you won't see the teleport/ignite, but it's a hypothetical situation in which you're garaunteed their fizz is top. Also, try not to stroke the meta's D*** too much, solo queue isn't lcs. The meta comes and goes with patches, but individual champion competency stays forever.

Will there be future Uni competitions to look out for? Withheld on playing thinking there'd be better players (Slightly egotistical, but I'm not alone).
: Hi there. Plat 3 here from Curtin University. It's good to see you being proactive and attempting to rally the troops, but I think that to be competitive you'd need diamond + players in order to have a shot. I'd be willing to join in if you need numbers, but I really do think there'd be a few diamond/master/challenger players at Curtin who'd be able to do a much better job. {{item:3070}} {{item:3070}} {{item:3070}}

If they're stacking mRes, get magic pen. If they're stacking armour, get armour pen. If they're stacking health, get an ap/ad item which counters health (liandrys/bork respectively) {{item:3151}} {{item:3153}} If you're complaining about ranked (which you should be, if you're complaining about tanks in normals... THEN JOIN THEM ), then I don't know, pick a champion with inbuilt shred/%health? Kayle? Vayne? AD Kog'maw? Irelia? Tank olaf with true damage? There's so much versatility when it comes to counterpicking tanks, both in blind and ranked.

: Champions Good at Denying Farm
{{champion:27}} Probably one of the best. If you're good at him. Poison between the enemy and your minions (running sideways usually helps) while being careful not to hard shove the lane in their direction. Them farming = being forced to take poison damage. {{champion:268}} Soldier spam {{champion:53}} Constant pull threat {{champion:58}} You're rarely going to outtrade {{champion:8}} Come close and you'll heal him {{champion:122}} Soloqueue stomper, most opponents can't go near without being "decimated". Same with {{champion:24}} . {{champion:34}} Ult/wall combo. {{champion:120}}support standing on your minions Kappa Anything works, really. These are just some off the top of my head. It all depends on getting yourself a lead. Just make sure if you're going to go the cs denial route to ward appropriately as most of the time you'll be susceptible to ganks.

This isn't very correct at all LOL "Employs politicians with very little practical experience". Wat? The government doesn't deal with fun. It deals with life. Government sites are as helpful and as succinct as possible, unless it's Centrelink. Inefficient monetary systems, c'mon man. Srsly? Source: Econs major @UWA with an interest in politics.

: Need some help with early game adc
Hey friend. Plat Quasi-ADC main here. If you have a terrible support, you have three or four options. First, you all caps rage at them and let them know how bad they are and that bronze 5's calling and wants their support back (not recommended) Secondly, you farm as much as you can SAFELY, and if you get a slight health advantage in your lane via poke/jesus' blessings, you take the initiative and pick the fight. Your support should do enough to make it a good trade. Thirdly, you farm as much as you can SAFELY, and ask and sit patiently for jungler assistance. Even if it's just to show face to let you catch back up in cs is helpful. And lastly, just *survive*. Don't go for silly farm, and just sustain through the laning phase. Buy a health pot or two. In fact, you could even hedge your bets in champion select and pick a late game marksman, so regardless of your support's early game skills, the onus is shifted on you to reach the 40 minute mark. xoxo goonbag
