: I understand why. I was a suicidal blitz last game. Is anyone willing to coach a noob for free?
Unfortunately unless you're a girl most people are unwilling to coach for free. I do coaching sessions free once every 3 months or so, but I just started one a month ago. (I usually get about 100+ applicants). I'd recommend not starting up ranked for at least several hundred wins. (And better then a 50% win rate in normals)

Maraudaur (OCE)
: Support Singed though
@Maraudaur But, if he 'attempted' to communicate with his teammates, isn't that enough? I'm sure after 100's of games of abuse, i would just mute all my teammates at the start of every game and not communicate. If i want to play an off-meta pick, and my teammates are mad at me for it, isn't that not my fault? I'm still attempting my hardest to win. I'm not intentionally feeding. Does this mean that players who can't communicate in the servers main language will get banned for picking off-meta picks? Where does 'communication' stop? Like what if i speak Russian/Chinese/French/Arabic etc? Does that mean i'm limited to playing only meta picks because i can't communicate with my team in English? I'm curious for an answer, where does Riot draw the line on 'failing to communicate'?

Skins are 'usually' realised 2 days after the patch. This patch came out a day early*, so its possible they are giving themselves an extra day to get things prepared, or the skin could even come out today. Of course, if there are any bugs in the patch, this will push back the skins release. *Due to holidays, not due to Elementalist Lux.

Honestly, not dying is s huge part of climbing. Going 0/0 is so much better than going 5/5. Being alive for that extra amount of time amount to objectives, more CS and more pressure.

Keep in mind not too many people will want to watch a low elo streamer unless you bring something unique to the party. Maybe be a comedian, or like idk. Just find something unique if you wanna be successful. :)

: @everyone - Champion concept - The Exile of Civilisation
I'm gonna be honest, this guy sounds broken. He's got twitch ult (that lasts even longer and gives him MS [and also scales with AD?!]) He's got zed's q-w as his q. His w is like aatrox but even stronger, and he has triple gap closer. To make this guy balanced, you'd either have to remove the damage aspect completely for 2 of his basic abilities, or half his damage, give him huge cooldowns and remove some gap closer abilities (probably all of them). Not trying to bring you down, just some honest advice. :)

: looking for any good players or smurfs
To improve your skills, i'd recommend reading this post by one of our OCE instructors. http://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-strategy/tBNPdREA-10-tips-to-reduce-your-death-count It was useful even to me as a D4 player.
: >It's pretty hard to detect players boosting accounts, they could just be smurfing.... They could just be smurfing, is not a reasoning when they go from being amazing to being terrible, or from being terrible to being amazing. Smurfing is completely different to boosting in that you can tell when someone is boosting because they get those sort of win rates FROM WHEN THEY START PLAYING.
IDK. I have a smurf in silver/gold and it only had a <50% win rate in the first 50 games. Now im actually trying to climb them, i've won over 75% of my games. Am i being boosted? Nope. Although i completely agree the number of boosted monkeys on the OCE server is really high.
Ingénue (OCE)
: 10 Tips to Reduce Your Death Count
This post is really useful for anyone looking to climb in elo. As a general benchmark, you should be aiming to keep your deaths below 5 in every game. My average this season (5.6 / 2.9 KDA) could still use improving on, and even as a diamond level player, this post is really useful.

harpii (OCE)
: Looking for Diamond player for some help and advice! Im Gold :-)
: Um, someone explain?
Im not sure what the confusion is here? You had a volibear with really high MMR (possibly duoing with you or another person on your team). The amount of times i've verused diamonds when i was climbing it plat was ridiculous. Its how you prove you belong in that elo. If you can't beat silvers, you probably don't belong in silver (match making logic). Also people in division 5 (silver 5/gold 5) can have an MMR thats lower, but they dont drop straight away. So those silver 5's may have had bronze MMR.
: New ultimate skin?
I personally believe it'll be syndra. Process of elimination: - ADC/Sup/JG have already had ultimates. Therefore it should be mid/top. An ultimate skin is meant to display the real heart and soul of a character. Syndra has natural parts in the game she gains power (read transforms), and i think it'd be a super cool concept. She's also seen play this year.

WAIT WAIT WAIT EVERYONE JUST PAUSE FOR ONE SECOND DID YOU JUST SAY A NEW ULTIMATE SKIN BEFORE END OF YEAR? WHY WASNT I INFORMED? WHEN? WHY? HOW? WHAT? WHERE?
Yeah, confirmed by ghostcrawler. The video has since been taken down, but here's an older reddit post about it. https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/4kaq98/new_ultimate_skin_will_be_released_this_year/ So, by my guess heres the current standings on the rest of the year. August 31th: Yorick Update September 30th: Worlds October 31st: Worlds + Preseason November 30st: New champion /Ultimate December 31st: New champion /Ultimate No information on who the ultimate skin is for, or any other details.

: Who is a hard but rewarding champion
Azir is super rewarding to play once you've mastered him. Unfortunately he's been extremely nerfed at the moment and is really not on the strong end. Ahri is fun too, but my champion of pick is Taliyah. Taliyah has an extremely high win percentage when people learn to master her. She's got amazing roam and great potential. Another is Viktor. If you have specific questions about Azir, i could probably help answer a few (like what is the 'shurima shuffle'- something you'll need to master to be good with him).
AceAkali (OCE)
: cant be bother to read this long msg if u short it up in 2 lines that would be great
Thats not very nice. This guy saw your post and decided to try and engage in conversation with you. He/She wrote down their thoughts, based on something you said. It's polite to at least read. :)
Yeah, i've experienced this too. I've had players intentionally throw games (like afk/run down mid) and be extremely salty. I would report then at the end game screen and then queue again. Then unfortunately i'd get them again! Even when i would take a 5-10 minute break, this could occur. It can be a little frustrating. However, i have managed to resolve my issues with some players after being queued with them again. The reason they i think Riot don't implement this feature is because its open to so much abuse (and compromises matchmaking). Even Overwatch, which had a similar feature enabled (prefer this player/ don't prefer this player), removed the option to avoid playing with people and removed the feature due to problems it caused with matchmaking (and people abusing it after just a month).
: #salt
There used to be a report option for 'unskilled', but Riot removed it. Personally i believe there's no need to have a report function like that. Riot aren't going to ban a player for not knowing how to play. Its all about learning and getting better- we shouldn't punish someone for that. :)
: Skin wish list
Could be a good idea, but Riot are so busy at the moment. Worlds, ultimate skin, and a new champion all before the end of the year. Not to mention their alpha client. Perhaps mention it on the alpha client forums? They are always up for new ideas over there!
: 0 Days since my last game against a smurf.
I've actually met more people being boosted and smurfing around plat 1/diamond 5 than any other elo. It can be annoying, but i'm used to it. (And every plat/diamond player i know has a smurf too) I guess the elo that it hurts the most is bronze, as there wouldn't be a reason needed to have a smurf?
Maraudaur (OCE)
: Dev Corner Highlight! (Katarina update)
Hey Maraudaur, I'm pretty sure there's been an in depth article about the the primary 4 assassins getting updates. Any chance you could pin them on the top of the boards until the assassin update comes out? It'd be good to have them all in one place. :)
: Playing bad because of negative thoughts?
Hey Carbon, Tough situation you're in. I imagine thinking about trying not to think about it makes it worse. As a small suggestion, maybe play league somewhere else in the house? Id also recommend speaking to a counsellor, they really aren't that scary at all, and your family won't think you're weird.
Fallion (OCE)
: What happened to the Special Effect from Arcade Sona Skin?
Solid point! Anyone from Riot who can shed some light on this?
: At what ELO is it safe to start supporting?
Usually my posts are pretty detailed, but I'll keep this one short. I started playing support in bronze 1, and never stopped. So to answer your question, I believe you can support in any elo to carry. :3 (I'm diamond now, and my ADCs are still terrible!) It's more of a grind than the other roles.
: I just vsed a Cassiopeia :)
From what I've seen, assassins are actually having a hard time at the moment. Vladimir and Viktor are solid picks. Even Cass mid is strong! :) I'm not a fan of the assassin mid meta myself, so I'm glad we've moved away from it.
: Death timers table?
Hey Slouth, There is some method to the madness. Death timers contains several different factors (level, specific game time etc). I'll post a link at the bottom of this post that specifically gives you the formula, but basically your death timer is: Level x 2.5 + 7.5 = Base Respawn Timer (BRT) The reason it's a 'base' timer, is because the timer is modified based on the game time. This starts at 15 minutes and increases incrementally every 30 seconds thereafter. So say you die 3 times at level 1, that would only be 30 seconds 3x[level 1 x 2.5 + 7.5]. However someone dying at minute 53.5 (the cap for incremental Respawn timers) would have a Respawn timer of: (Level 18 x 2.5 + 7.5) x 1.5 = just over 78 seconds. Now don't go quoting me on this math, but I hope this gave you a general idea of death timers! :) Here's the link I promised: http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Death
Wolfcchi (OCE)
: Different Approach to Remake?
Hey Wolfcchi, Firstly it sucks that you lost your promos! Honestly that is a terrible feeling. I believe you'll get back in them and win the next one. I had to do my diamond promos 4 times. :( The remake idea that riot implemented isn't perfect, but it is really good. Currently the remake option allows a remake if: a) A player is afk/dc for more than 90 seconds at the 3 minute mark. b) First blood hasn't been shed prior to the DC. It may have been possible that FB went to the enemy team before your Ezreal disconnected a second time? Extending the AFK time to 5 minutes could lead to people abusing the system. Any kind of system Riot implements that alters LP gain/loss needs to be regulated really carefully.
: But what if i don't get back to the elo i was in? I am still only a gold player after all, i can't 1v9 if someone on my team decided to go ham spamming insults to literally everyone in the planet and tilting them, ugh this is so tedious
I know exactly what you were feeling. I was winning my lane consistently, doing well in fights, having a low death count- and my win ratio was still barely above 50%. Honestly it is a grind. They'll be more games where you have to go 20/0 and carry then games where you get carried. Unfortunately it's the truth of the matter. Just remember use your game knowledge to your advantage, as your mechanics might be rusty. Remember to rotate, focus on objectives, and maintain vision control, and you'll be fine. :)
