: I think low elo will always have lack of understanding issues, in whatever area you would like to focus on. My main gripe is that the Riot Balance team **constantly lowers the skill** level of the game. Some examples: - Remove Graves combo - Make all jungle camps 4cs - Show buffs when they are about to spawn on the minimap - Notify the whole game when a baron or dragon is taken - Make Alistar combo easier to hit - Remove optional items that weren't broken and now - make it obligatory that a gold item for supports comes with a sightstone Another thing that this change does is seriously snowball bot lane. You will see in competitive that bot lane will be the focus for the jungler now. Top lane will be some broken tank like Orrn saying "come gank me, i can see you a mile away". Why do they always pander to noobs? If you lower the skillcap of games, it won't improve noobs play, noobs will still be noobs. Supports will have a sightstone and still not ward. Gonna make it that supports all start with a red trinket next? Or remove boots from the game entirely? Or delete the minimap from the game? They just end up frustrating those that enjoy the game for its skill. P.S. These 8.2 changes are also an indirect nerf to teemo. Players with a brain that have a sightstone will also have a sweeper.
I forgot to mention that in this patch, the BIGGEST change is actually that minions attack champions if spells are used. Like seriously, do they not think before they do that change? Like why at the start of the history of LOL would that not be the case? Why would developers back in the day not make that in the game? Its easier to code, so why would that not be in the game? Brainless balance team.

: the issue is without a sightstone reminder, I'm worried about the state of warding all the way up to gold (where I still have to tell my team to pull their trinkets out of their asses).

: And as I said they clearly do, more so than you that's why they are the developers. Rank means nothing to actual knowledge of the game, that's been proven time and time again. Take a look at the coaches of the pro-teams, most of them are Silver to Gold elo, yet they know more about the game than the pro-players themselves who know very little and specialised pieces of the game. It's the same for the majority of players. Most people who play this game know very little about it, they know how maybe 10 champions work, and most of those champions will be in the position they play. They'll have a general idea of how most champions that get played kinda work. But you throw in something that's almost never played and they'll lose to it 95% of the time because they don't know what they are doing against that champion. Take a look at the win rates of pre-rework Yorick/Sion mains.

: Hi there! I miss the podcast as well! Jake's Roast? That was great! Unfortunately though we discontinued the show because it was just too resource intensive. The same team who runs the broadcast was putting together the pod which meant they were working on their weekend to get it done, which wasn't sustainable. That said something we're seeing more of this year even though it's early doors is content created by 3rd parties. There was a 3rd party podcast last year and I hope another starts this year as well. Thanks for posting and keep supporting your OPL club!
Hire some more people then to help out? No more podcast or Ocean week? Cmon man, Riot are just cutting costs. If you need more members for the shoutcasting team, take the guys who cover the OCS, they do a better job anyways!

: Lead Gameplay Designer has been hardstuck silver for 3 seasons and has played 1 game in 7 days.
Yep, its gonna be one of those seasons. Starting with 8.2 where silvers don't realise that removing sightstones will actually lead to **more** wards on the map than ever! Just because bronzers don't buy sightstone, don't balance around that please. I loled when she said Morgana was op in the jungle, like seriously. Get a real jungler to invade her and shes toast.

: Having A Terrible Computer While Playing League.
You can buy a pretty awesome league PC on gumtree for under $500. Saw one the other day with an i5, 16GB RAM, SSD, 1TB HDD, and 4GB Graphics card for $475.
: Seras, I report these players in game constantly, yet constantly come across them in games days after the report and they're still doing the same thing. That is why I posted here asking for how many reports from a single game is required for action to be taken against obvious bot users. Posting the match history was purely so that when your staff see them, they can look over and see, "yeah, that's a bot, let's do something about it" If the original question could be answered I would appreciate it, and concerning the bots, I will lodge support tickets, because all evidence so far suggests that in game reporting in games with 2+ bots results in failure. The same with offensive and innapropriate names.
I've given up reporting bots for the same reason. You just get them in game a few days later. They must only ban them in waves. Like the killtaiwanese bots, took them over a week to ban each one of those.

: Yeah I have to make a call. I'll sign into League here and there to play some ARAM with some friends, but won't be playing Rift, ranked, or watching eSports as I have been. I'll check back regularly to see: * If URF is made available close to its original form, if not better, and made available more often, if not permanently * Runes / balance are fixed so the game has more strategy, depth, potential for comebacks, no cheese, and isn't like playing dark souls in the laning phase. I want challenging, intense games, that are impacted by several decisions and mechanics at all times of a game, and feeling that i can impact every game and get good, and that my influence can win the majority of games. * Riot shows more evidence of listening to what players _really_ want, and are focused at its core on games that connect with gamers, that kick ass * Changes are well thought out, have a direction and meaning, and aren't just made because of a culture of innovation and change for its own sake, or because some staff at Riot are bulls in a China shop who like to wing things and because they think change is cool without enough thought put into what they're doing, or their end goal (which should be making a kick ass game that connects with players, and naturally monetises) * There's no other political statements, or social justice messages coming from league / riot. Keep it all the fuck out. Ocean week, giving to charity isn't a bad thing though. * hextech changes and loot boxes die a horrible (or wonderful and desirable) death. Make the game fun and desirable to play over and over again by making the game awesome, and make great content that people want to buy (which admittedly is still the case). Addictive monetisation and gambling methods are pretty dishonest. * There's less copying of the Overwatch system, which has a lot of the shit you've taken on, without the gameplay issues or terribly though out changes, or the lack of availability of their URF equivalent (or the All Randomness) I'm pretty devastated - I want my game back, or rather don't want the crap that **_is_** now. Surely I'm speaking on behalf of the majority of the player base on this. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
Yep, you are. I quit about a month ago, and now just clown on smurfs in normals once a week or so. The game is being made to be less skilful overall and appeal to bronzies and people who will buy stuff in the short term. But in the long term there will be a mass exodus. Another company that does not understand how business works, trying to justify things with numbers and not common sense. Since season 5 there has been a slow removal of skill in many areas, so I'm gone.

: Half of OPL starting roster suspended while Tainted Minds gets off with a slap on the wrist for severely mistreating players. Riot OCE is an utter joke.
Patch 8.1 was a joke also, and Patch 8.2 will be even worse! Time to start selling off your accounts before they become worthless {{summoner:6}}

And already there is a suspension to go with the other ones :) Looks like easy Chiefs win this split.

They might need to be tested for high salt intake - good call!

: how do i show my game
Just get a coach and go on skype and share your screen while you show them a replay. [One challenger coach dude on gumtree](https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/bankstown/video-games/league-of-legends-lessons-and-improvement/1168385684) does this for $10 an hour, its pretty good value.
: Thank you so much for replying to my thread. :D Here are the answers: 1) No, I know that will get my account banned. I even leveled my account by myself. 2) Yes, a few games when I was at his place, but he will never script. 3) No, I use Mac, I don’t think I can use custom skin on this system even if I want to? 4) No I’m not a support main, I can play all the role. Support relies on teammates a lot and I want to carry. 5) GLFM is not banned, I just asked him. Amber
So that leaves Point #2, or the cybercafe computer as the issue. One of these places has had scripts installed in the past. Like I've know players that checked out what scripts do in the past but then uninstalled the scripts without cheating in ranked games, and got banned in a ban wave months later. Just have to be more careful where you play the game I guess, unlucky.

OCE is behind the rest of the world. Not because we are inferior human beings though, don't make up rubbish. It's obvious why OCE is behind, just ask any pro, they will tell you - it's because we don't have stronger competition to better ourselves. We are too far away from other servers to play without huge ping. That's why pros bootcamp in Korea for short term training. And no, I wasn't joking, it's true. OCE platinums are trash.

A number of rioters who were popular on the boards have jumped ship and that is indicative of something bigger going on.
: I Am Quiting League Of Legends (Atleast For Now)
I think a lot of aussie streamers quit league in the past year or so. Off the top of the head: Fasffy, Loserfruit and Straawbella (Challenger). Think they also moved to Overwatch, have fun there man!

: >Hi, I’m just an ordinary girl that loves league No one reading this thread really cares about your gender. Your obviously feminine name already screams that you're a girl and that you want attention, but please do not be so ignorant to introduce yourself as such. You're not going to get any sympathy from us by being like, "_Oh my God, guys! I'm a girl! Hi_!". We're not Twitch chat. We don't care about your gender. Stop using it to garner sympathy. >loves league as much as any of you reading my thread. Pointless introduction to your topic. No one really cares how much you enjoy playing this game. Get to the point. >Recently my account was banned for using 3rd party programs (scripting I suppose) The fact your assumption was instantly scripting just proves that you're guilty. It's the classic excuse for anything. "_No, teacher, I assume they did this and that, but I didn't do it. Just a wild guess. Haha_!". There is more than one reason to be banned for third-party programs aside from 'scripting'. Macros can get you banned, certain things that inject into the client can get you banned. Next, I assume you'll throw out generic programs millions of people use and add on a quick, "_But that can't have got me banned_!" >the only program that I use when I’m playing league is Discord and QQ (a Chinese app I use for chat), I don’t know why that would count as malicious. There it is. Classic. Neither of them are malicious nor are they the reason behind your ban. >And I was just playing like any other day for the past 2 years since I started... Doubt it. I watched a few of your games. Sadly, I cannot watch those from when you were bronze, but I got enough. You're currently Plat 2 with high Master mechanics yet retain that Bronze/Silver decision making. Your Vayne is insanely good, far better than mine and my peak rank was Diamond 1. Granted, I am an Annie one-trick, but I can play most champions with considerable ease. >This is the only account I have, it’s become a part in my life now Then why script? >i am legit bad at computers, there’s no way I’d know how to script). Ask anyone on my friend list and they will confirm that I am telling the truth. Amusing that you're 'bad with computers', but you manage to play League at a high mechanical level. You can attack move really precisely for someone being so bad with computers. Don't give me that nonsense that it's not the same because it is. My mother, who can't stand computers, can hardly play League, yet my buddy who is a professional I.T techy person and he grasped it easily enough. Regardless, hardly an excuse when those sites have step-by-step guides on how to set them up. No knowledge required. >Ask anyone on my friend list and they will confirm that I am telling the truth [scarra laugh] >I have spent more than 700AUD on this account And? I've spent close to $6,000 on this game. Only now have I grasped the sense that I am wasting money when I get perm banned every second week. No one cares.

Spacebar is not your friend. >I want to play league again ASAP but I’m afraid to start a new account... :( Don't script on this one and it won't be banned.
Hi Amber Baby, I have some questions that could help resolve the issues you are facing. Try to answer them honestly. In your league career, 1) Did you ever get an elo boost? 2) Did you boyfriend ever play on your account? 3) Did the computer you played on ever have a 3rd party skin program? 4) Are you a support main? 5) Is GLFM banned also? As for the guy above: > [{quoted}](name=Broken Scripts,realm=OCE,application-id=Ntey9fRZ,discussion-id=V7gOAJZE,comment-id=0002,timestamp=2018-01-01T21:48:49.624+0000) > > You're currently Plat 2 with high Master mechanics yet retain that Bronze/Silver decision making. Apart from the rest of your assumptions, this one is the most striking. Do you think that more than 1% of the OCE server ranked under Diamond 1-2 has better than Bronze/Silver decision making? If you do, you are fooling yourself. OCE has the worst macro out of any server on the planet. And **most** platinums got there via mechanics/duoing/dynamic queue only. Edit: On OCE Platinum = Silver but with better mechanics and farming.
: Former Diamond ADC Main- My Thoughts
Do you mean, how do people lose lane as a Tristana? Because in OCE people lose game for a variety of reasons, it might not be to do with the ADC so much. As for lane, there are some matchups that Tristana might have trouble into. Or perhaps the bot lane are just poor at map awareness and get ganked a lot. Or possibly your opponents are just rabbits and you are stomping them. There are a lot of poor adcs out there currently (especially in Diamond 5). Keep stomping them until you find the reason :)

: Any tips on climbing from Gold V to Gold I?
There are layers upon layers of things that higher tiers understand better than lower ones. So if you are truly wanting to climb, here are my tips. 1) Play more, and play consistently... you don't have a single champion that you played 30+ games on in Season 7 2) Main one role and have a backup role and play those consistently. **Don't deviate from these roles**, even when things are going badly. This is your learning phase. Looking at your op.gg, stick with two champions for the roles. For example. learn Nasus and Gnar top, while having Azir and Annie mid, or Warwick and Nocturne in the jungle. But don't main three roles, choose only two. 3) Use Thresh/Annie for support, in case you get autofilled to support. 4) Play Lee Sin in normals but not in ranked. Lee Sin is one of a couple of champions (twisted fate, yasuo) that players need to have greater macro understanding than their opponents for him to be successful, and not just be good at the champion. 5) Don't play normals, play ranked. 6) When you reach Diamond 2, then the real game begins. You will understand what I mean when you get there. Good Luck!
: Its ridiculous trying to get people to understand that you are doing all you can to help people and that its too difficult trying to get people to understand how to play and win when your whole team is feeding this game needs some serious work done on it to help players that actually want to play the game and win and not just players who want to grief and feed all game and then have no punishment.
I don't understand why there aren't more actual Rioters in game. I mean problems could be resolved pretty quickly on the spot.
