: So is "Nig*a" "Cu*t" "Dumbcu*t" and all other racial come other verbal abuses allowed on oce now?o.O
c-nt is not a racial slur and in Australia is considered normal (I don't say it but w.e), but n word should be banned. I guess it's a carry-over from NA since in NA some people say n-gga (NOT n-ggER) the same way they use 'bro'. The system otherwise bases its response to a single word based on how many times it has been reported, so just report and move on.
: Can we just reflect for a moment on how bias the rune system is.
Conquerer, Glacial augment, arcane comet and PTA aren't even in the right categories. Arcane comet outright has nothing to do with auto attacks, and the rest depend on champion/build. Either way, there's going to be fourth keystones for all trees.

: My issue with placements (Don't worry not a 'I got placed lower' moan)
Last year's placements put me in bronze 3/4 after winning 8-2, I climbed to silver V over the season. Then gold V over end of season/preseason, hovered in very very low MMR (silver 3-4) for a very long time (but my rank was protected because my MMR has to be faaar lower to go back to silver) This year I went 4-6 and got placed silver 4. Norms MMR is not representative of ranked at all, I've gone vs plats and won because they're intentionally on off roles, off meta or first timing a champ. In my time in gold elo they were far more skilled. I'd like to believe that if I started a new account my MMR would somehow be better and I'd play well, but that just isn't true. I've seen streams of pro players being placed in plat or gold after placements, which was where faker was placed when he got so good at norms the matchmaking couldn't find anyone better. And clearly not every pro player gets challenger MMR in norms before moving onto ranked Finally, and most importantly, people are bad at evaluating the skills of themselves and those above them. Maybe your friend really is a bronze-low silver player. We don't have replays or anything, and it's easier to believe that than the system somehow being programmed into screwing you over.
: I get that Zoe's w has been nerfed, but please nerf it again so that shards only drop within a certain radius of Zoe. The fact that you can see where the enemy jungler is at just by checking where there are stars on the minimap is a bit unfair imo.
You have to be in vision of a star to see it
: How to be a better mid laner???
- Depends. If you have waveclear you should predict that they are coming mid and push to tower so the ADC can auto. If you're a roaming champ you can go top lane. - If you're a safe waveclear champ it's very easy to hold even 3v1 as long as they don't have a more mana efficient waveclear. If you're a champ that's not very safe (like ryze or zed), try to ping jungler and support for help (your own ADC can farm the empty botlane, no need for 2 people wasting time in an empty lane). Even if they're more mana efficient (Vel'koz or Azir will always beat Orianna, Anivia and Xerath in mana for example), if you waveclear 3 times and hold 3 people off for a very long time that's a lot of gold missed out from the fact the ADC and mid have to share while you and your ADC get 1 lane each. This doesn't apply if they have a very strong diving setup like Blitzcrank Ashe Zed. Then ping the hell out of your team tank. - If you can roam, roam. Any good roaming champion can 1v1 the jungler (otherwise they're not particularly good roamers) so they have less requirements. Otherwise as an immobile mage you should spend gold on damage or mana depending on what you're lacking to waveclear (Anivia needs mana, Lux needs damage for example), and shove the wave constantly and then go to the enemy raptors and take those while warding their jungle. By then enemy will have lost a lot of CS or finished CSing under tower and the waves reset or push towards you. Do the same but instead organize something like a gank or dragon with your jungler in chat or pings. Always note your jungler's position, some mages even when ahead can't 1v1 as well but they can 2v2 better than the enemy mid+jg. - Generally as a mid laner you ward depending on where your jungler is (since you have to be on the same top/bot side of the map or else you can get caught out very easily), you can ward the enemy jungle aggressively if you know your team can use that information (especially if you have a counter jungler or 1v1 jungler) but sometimes it's better to ward one of the tribushes or river for your top/bot, so top can focus on laning while the support can go for deeper wards without getting caught out. - Use TP to get to lane quicker whenever possible. That's probably the sole purpose of TP in mind imo, to get you a gold lead as much as possible. You can do this either from base or *after* roaming, but don't bother using it *for* roaming. The 2-4 seconds you save from TPing as opposed to walking is beaten by the fact you surprise them if the support is responsible and red trinkets the bushes, or the top laner control wards (bonus points if your top laner doesn't destroy a revealed and disabled enemy ward, so when they walk up to auto the control ward they won't see you coming). - If bot lane is getting destroyed you can 4 man them and turn it around as a teamfighting mage, though you can ask the top laner if they're tanky, have ranged waveclear or have a whole lot of escapes to swap with bot and farm under tower. In general a fed enemy bot lane is very hard to fix, so there's no safe and clear answer for a fed bot lane. For a fed top lane, a 3v1 gank easily turns things around, or a lane swap. Just be careful and time it so that the jungler is top side if a countergank occurs. - AP vs AD isn't really the question people should be asking comp-wise because the answer is fairly obvious (AP if you have lots of AD or your top+jg+support are ALL tanks and the ADC is the only other source of damage, AD if you already have AP elsewhere, etc), but rather carry vs assassin. Carries, even the high burst mages and CC orientated mages are good teamfighters while assassins are good 1v1 champions, and some lie in both (like Yasuo, I think). Its difficult to say, in high elo there's a lot of questions you have to ask like how much CC does the team need vs can you make picks and catch people out, and in low elo you have to ask yourself whether the teams are off doing their own thing (1v1 champions rule in when everyone's running around like headless chicken), or if it devolves into a 5v5 ARAM after a while (carries are the rulers of the clown fiesta) - Don't call jungler to gank. I think it's a learning experience to lose lane and learn how to play from that, and the jungler usually has a better grasp on where and when to gank than the laners. There are times you can ask, but you have to actually set it up instead of saying "jg pls gank". Be specific like "I'm going to let him push in and control ward this bush" *pings* "can you gank in 2 mins" (and if they say no then ditch the plan and try again later). I'm not very experienced in setting up ganks though because I naturally just let the wave push in, and I either don't get ganked at all, or get ganked constantly because I'm duo queue with a jungler. (actually, just get a jungler duo queue and you'll be good. Imo good jungler + mid synergy > good support + ADC synergy)
: > There's an ethical and moral dilemma known as the "Trolley Problem", where two train tracks exist, four people tied to one, and one person tied to the other.

Talon12 (OCE)
: Spelltheif was always the top support item, coin was the lowest, only time people bought coin was because they couldnt poke enough in the lane for spelltheif to be viable, so they got the sustain and gold from coin, but if coin is now offering even less gold than before, and no sustain what so ever, and spellthief now plays the role of talisman, what is the point in getting it, the only champ that would benefit is udyr, just so he can get an extra point into his last spell.
Getting to level 18 isn't something that happens every game, even as a solo laner.

umm wouldn't it be better to just remove the post completely considering the fact it now has no content?
: To add an anecdote: I was in a dispute recently over a lane. It clearly showed on my screen that I got it. But this other guy kept insisting that he got it, I lost the game of chicken and grudgingly switched to support before the timer finished. I was unimpressed, and for the first few mins did internally hold a grudge, But this guy's actions were not that of the typical lane-stealer _(Locking in Riven, no communication in champ-select, spews out some illegible 'teenage english' in /All chat on first blood, spams lvl 7 mastery all game, and never speaks or pings again.)_ He wasn't like that, he was an upstanding player, complimenting and advising the team, admitting his own mistakes etc. And he did say later on in the game "Im sorry Taric (me), I truly would have gone support if I thought I didn't get the lane." I told him of course that it was ancient history and all was good. So I am now convinced that we both saw our names first on the call _(which isn't supposed to happen)_. I did honour him at the end for being an upstanding player, and on top of it all managed to get my 2nd lvl 7 Taric token, as a bonus to a great game. But I have seen so many lane disputes recently definitely NOT go as smoothly as that. Double jung has been a frequent occurrence, on top of countless requests to report certain players for stealing lanes, and inter-team fighting. Just because of a small loading error in champ select.
the moment I read "Taric (me), I truly" I thought it would say "I am truly, truly, truly outrageous"
: Dear people that continue to call Thresh overloaded
Zyra has damage, peel and vision Nami has peel, engage and sustain Janna has a shield, and peel Braum has peel, shield and engage Soraka has sustain Thresh has engage, peel, damage, a shield and vision While Thresh's shield and vision are bad, overloaded =/= OP/strong. Overloaded kits lead to harder to balance champions but that's not always the case anyway. There's a lot in his kit that can be simplified or maybe even outright removed in exchange for more of something he already has, maybe.

: If you want to fix Supports then you need to focus on one phrase "You're the support" Everytime I hear that in a game, it reminds me that as a support main, I am not there to play the game, only to help other people play. Getting behind as a support is painfull. Not only do you have to find some way to get xp and gold to be useful, but you almost always have to do it away from your AD, who is likley the reason you are behind in the first place (usualy because they have no respect for your cooldowns). The itemization is really boring, there are very few support items that I look forward to getting in game, and some that I actively hate having to build, just because the game neccesitates it. I hate doing 90% of the work towards a kill or a teamfight to not only have my team not recognize me, but to have the game itself not appreciate my contribution. Esepcialy when my job is to be bait, or a distraction so my team can get objectives. Fix gold and exp sharing, make the support items share rewards better on kill or assist (do it on the rank 2 items so otherlanes don't try to co-opt supports and ruin everthing like they always do). Give the support items some decent stats, so I don't feel like I'm buying items for someone else on the team. Remember that I am playing. I am one of the five people on this team. I'm not just here for everyone else, I wan't to be involved, I wan't to contribute and I don't want to be told "you're just the support" anymore.
To be fair I don't exactly 'look forward' to building tear, abyssal scepter or morellonomicon either. People just build items without second thought. Hating certain items, sure, I actually hate getting Zhonya's more than I hate getting spellthief's edge honestly
: Some thoughts on Support
Supports should just have their sightstone merged into spellthief's, ancient coin, and targon's brace (not the final versions, I mean you just outright start with the item and take it with red trinket.) The actives from the final items are turned into completely different support items that give bonus EXP from duo laning, or something like that. Maybe a vision denying item for later game? Not something required. I keep looking at gold income for supports and it's only 1k-500 different from mid laners and junglers, the problem is sightstone doubling that gap and the fact support items are absolutely required probably add another 500 if you're playing a mage or something and can go with better items.

: She is ionian, but she is from the stars, so it could be lawyered either way. As for another category, i see your thinking! and it makes sense. But just because they're all outcasts doesn't mean they would work any better with each other than with their original kinsmen. Syndra is just as unlikely to work with Fizz or Alistar as she is to work with Irelia or Karma. Plus if we get too knit-picky we wouldn't have any categories left Shurima would consist only of: Azir Nasus Sivir Taliyah (and even then, Taliyah is hesitant to ally with Azir) as those champs are the only 4 who are fighting for Shurima, all the rest are loners like Rammus and Ammumu, or corrupted like Xerath and Renekton... You cant have a Shuriman team without having some champions that don't get along. The shadow isles are the same, most of the shadow isles champs don't get along with eachother either, bilgewater has the same problem. If we took good/bad into account, then we'd have a whole lot of incomplete teams.
maybe the loners like Rammus and Amumu can count as both?

I'd rather they focus only on massive press acts than none at all, and we can't really assume riot doesn't do anything because they don't want to, in fact, we can't even assume riot does nothing, they just don't announce every single ban. As for Tyler's specific case, I don't hold an opinion either way.

Losing 75% AP or AD from being in lane with someone so.... Cancerous... Is a bit harsh. It literally punishes being tanky enough to stay in lane. Being able to switch to another clone and having a free blink every 5 seconds (all of the other ones are gated by more than just having a nearby clone...)is also a bit OP, it reminds me of the time I spammed wards at my tower as Kat to shunpo out of trouble. Unless the range is really tiny, like melee auto attack range. Then I'm fine.
