: Yeh no, look at my last game, I fought the best I could to the end, get a lousy S rank and no thanks to my team I get a loss the same as them. Yet AGAIN bot lane on the enemy side get fed no thanks to our shitty support, AGAIN my bot lane fails for like the 100th time this SEASON alone. I will re-iterate what I generally say, I have no issues in all other game modes, why is that? By now anyone who has played this game long enough should know, my personal MMR in other game modes is high enough to be matched with players of my skill. Whereas in ranked, no matter how well you play, because you need to rely on your team to do something, even if that is not feeding and just defend, you have more chance to be stuck at a lower rank. Players who join ranked do so WAY to early and generally suck ass. Look again at wrote at the very end, a fresh level 30 playing their first ranked game, going as a support with Garen, stealing CS and building a decent top lane build minus the boots. I still tried in that game, even though I knew it was over before it even began, I still fought hard and I knew what was coming in game. Garen stealing CS from our AD, our AD inevitably feeding and cursing on their own team, showing nothing more than how immature and bad they are that rather than play smart, they continue to play a one track game and blame the team.

All that matters is what you say, a team who knows only how to defend and not feed, then one person can carry that game.

: Awww will you look at that, Riot are saying something on probably the ONLY post here of someone who said they like the new queues, and now I have a chance to reply to a Rioter, which will no doubt either be deleted or ignored. First, let me rant, than I will be nice and explain. YOUR DYNAMIC QUEUE SUCKS HARDER THAN A HOOKER ON CRACK! In ALL the previous seasons I have played, NEVER EVER have I had games that are so bad, never have I had issues where I feel the need to come here after ALMOST EVERY GAME and post some nonsensical crap to try and get my point across, the dynamic queue DOES NOT WORK! And looking at all the posts here, most of the players feel the same way. I have been stating since the start of S6, this queue system is being rubbish, will not and is not working and you must, yes, MUST implement a way to allow players to gain and lose LP based on YOUR OWN PERSONAL GAME, give players a real fucking incentive to actually play ranked, to play this game and to actually try to win rather than doing what I do. I no longer play for real after a certain point in the game, I just fuck about whether I am going to win or lose, I see the game is over one way or another and so far, EVERY SINGLE GAME I have played in S6 since my first 10 games I have called each and every single one of them as to who is going to win and got it right. Most recently I almost pulled a Nasus split push, took down 2 whole lanes and both nexus towers on my own and got within 2 hits of the nexus, well, 2 Nasus hits. When one of my team tried the same approach, they got as close as the inhibitor and died miserably. As close as I got to winning that game, I was still right from the very beginning, we will lose and we did. OK, rant over, let me try and be nice. Out of all honesty that I can possibly muster for this game, I will be 100% in saying this season is by FAR worse than every other season I have played. I spend more time on these boards posting than I do even playing. I have previously made it to Gold and better with nothing more than Teemo top lane, I finished that season on Gold. Your old system was a little better than this system, but I have noted in the past that NO system that implements a chess like MMR rating will ever work 100% when there is more than one player on each team, it just cannot happen, ever. Mathematically there is no way of doing it, trust me on that, please. I may sound crazy, but when it comes to numbers, I know what I am talking about. What you need to do, something I have suggested way in the past and something I keep posting now since the start of this season, the start of dynamic queue and the introduction of team rewards. You CANNOT give more rewards to premade players, you will only force players to make groups just to get those rewards and this is probably the reason you have the rewards, to force players to group, and than with the increased 'premade teams' you can use those stats to back yourselves and say it is all working and it only needs some fine tuning. I can almost guarantee you that without the team rewards you will have far less players grouping. I have never seen so many premades in this game, and the majority of them are bad. It used to be in the past, the team who had the better premade wins. Now it is whoever has the worst premade loses. I am not even the one who first said that, I am stealing it from someone else, and it is true, you get 3+1+1 vs. 3+1+1, whoever is the worst 3 man premade, loses the game. _**You MUST implement a system that gauges YOUR OWN PLAY and gives you an LP gain or loss based on that, not on whoever wins. **_It was a jackpot to begin with, now with the boosted MMR matches being more evident, you are only giving players worse games. Yes, you can have the same chance of getting a bad team than others, but lets face it and lets look deeper into it. What you need to research on is this: How many premade teams are winning when you premake a team more than a certain percentage? That is, You get all the stats on premade teams, look at how many times the same players are premaking teams, let's say I premake a team with the same 8-10 players for over half my ranked games, how many wins do I have against someone who has only 'premade' a team with random players for most of their ranked games? You may be surprised and see that those who just randomly take whoever to premade vs. those who premade with the same players don't actually win anymore game, I know this as I have been through it, take some random dude who played one good game, than lose the next three and realise they only played that one good game when you bother to check on their history. I have played in ONE good premade team this season and only a handful over the time I have been playing. Since I don't have any real life friends who play this game, I cannot get into a rhythm with the same players and build some team skills, or get players who play the same way I do. You don't really have an option to find players who can play well with you. I take you back to my WoW days. You join a Guild, you find X number of players who you play well with who are on at the same times you are, and viola, you start to do well in both PVE and PVP, why, because you can talk to them regularly outside the instances and get to know them as people therefore making it more worthwhile to try and do well each and everything and go above and beyond for them, rather than, as someone said, see them as a commodity that you will only trade up when you find someone better. I had some 15 players on my friends list this season, that is down to none since most of those players were either not on when I was, never accepted an invite, or only played 1-2 roles / champions good a handful of times and overall made my gaming experience worse since I was in an MMR boosted premade team and when I went against someone who wasn't premade, they personally were at a higher MMR than I was, making life difficult. The only time premades REALLY work is when it is 5v5, because the boosted MMR is, not really boosted since you are all premade. The moment you get one person singled out, game over. But I bring you to the attention of one, if not THE best game I have ever played. Some time ago I chose Yi jungle, got grouped with a 4 man premade, can't remember the enemy comp, but let me tell you they sucked BALLS. I got some 40+ kills and less deaths than all of my team, close to 1 million damage and 250K player damage, but still lost, why? The enemy team was better than the four I was playing with. I am thinking the old system took my personal ELO, matched with the 4 of them, averaged both teams ELO to be the same and I was personally that much better than the entire enemy team and smashed them, but because the other 4 on my team were that much lower ELO than the enemy were on a personal ELO that they just couldn't keep up and I couldn't virtually take on 5 players solo. As I said being the third person to post on this earlier today: > Up to a point in ranked, the MMR needs to be matched SOLO VS. SOLO, regardless of whether the player is premade or not, it needs to take YOUR OWN MMR and match against other players WITH THE SAME SOLO MMR. Since you don't want to put the solo queue back in, you need to stop boosting premades MMR at low rank and just let them fight. Quite a fair few low ranked players only join teams with the assumption that they will win easier, or have only just joined a team and don't actually know how to play well together to be able to benefit from being in a team and therefore, simply get matched against players whose are able to win in the critical lane phase that much easier that no matter how well you group after that, it is too late. Or you implement this: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Jhxwn6yi-MgSEbO2F-J-rq5EWxZM8ujr4W3o3S36vgs/edit?usp=sharing A system that allows players to gain and lose ELO based on their play. It gives those who can actually play a real chance to rank up and those who just tag along for the ride, to rank down, putting players where they personally belong. It also gives you a REAL reason to give 100% in each and every game, even those where 4 of your team rage quit. Yes, that has happened to me. It was quite hilarious actually being in a real 1v5 match. But for that what did I get? The same as the rest of my team, the same LP lose that the 4 quitters got. You tell me, how is that fair? I can go through each and every game in my list and tell you exactly why I built the way I built, why I got the score I got, actually I will answer that for you now, it is almost the same answer each time. I build to counter my lane to give me an advantage, allow me to farm more, get more kills, win my lane, STOP MY OPPONENT and therefore give my team the best possible chance to win, but when my team fail, like losing towers under 10 minutes, or feeding hard, I try to build what we are missing. That is, if the ADC is rubbish, I start to build more damage to try and compensate for them not doing any. But I can still go through each game and tell you WHY I did what I did in that particular game and why we lost and prove to you that in most of them it was not anything I done to make us lose. I will give you one example on my last game. Our designated 'mid' decided to take jungle and screw over our actual jungle who had to take mid or else, we could try 2 jungle and no mid, it may have been better than what was to come. Bot lane had a Garen 'Support' who ended up taking CS and A> Built no boots and B> played like he was a fully farmed top laner. 99% of his games are Garen, Trynd, Renekton or Xin and this was his FIRST ranked game, about 130 for me. Just more proof that players join ranked for shits and giggles with no real understanding or enough skill to play ranked. To top it off, he had previous games with someone of the name LCD****, in this game he was grouped first time I can see with someone named LCD****, same first 3 initials. You know what that means? I know you do. I am out of characters here, you know what I mean with the above, I know you do, but you all refuse to listen. Why?
yo omni the game is only always "over" cos you act like a little bitch instead of fighting to your last breath.
: Dynamic queue and the future of League
I am mildly disappointed but not surprised by this, I am sure you all know what you are doing though, GL 2 dynamic, it is a good thing if it works a bit better! :) I would make some points: 1. For role selection I have a suggestion. Would it be possible to make the que pop accept button give the option to keep waiting for first role matching if the game found is for your 2nd option. (if u use this make me a {{item:3078}} summoner icon lel) 2. It has been said in many places by many people that not only matching _against_ pre-made groups, but **with** them is a painful experience. Especially 4s, where the only role the solo player can assume is that of scapegoat.. So if you just cut out 5s for the entire lot instead making 3 man. 3. Then you could make the club system where if 5 people from a club are playing in a normal game it tracks there progress and gives them some kind of rating through the season, maybe the colour of the club name could change with different levels of success. That way the dynamic can assume a slightly more self worth identity for players who like that stuff, and groups of friends can still feel cool for working together as 5 and be rewarded for it. 4. will norma change to dynamic style (has it already elsewhere is it just OCE)? It seems silly to have this fancy new system but then not use it to make normal games flow really easily. Thanks, p3rp. P.S. I miss normal wards.

: I have Flash on the " ` " key (Diacritic key).
: Its really a personal thing l have taken flash on f since beggining of season 3 and never put it on d. l tryed putting flash on d once in season 5 and it didnt feel right l ended up spamming f to flash and it didnt work thinking l was laggying but only relised after l died flash was on d :(
lol you should try playing diablo 3 all day then have a game of LoL. I personally keep pressing left click to move an think my game is broken haha so silly {{item:3073}}
: What do you mean by reducing the time between ping keys? I don't understand why people would use G and V to ping when you can easily do "ALT + Left click" and "CTRL + Left click" respectively which takes mispressing keys completely out of the equation. Since your thumb is naturally on the spacebar, pressing ALT shouldn't be a problem at all. Pressing CTRL to ping back might take a little getting used to, but you can still ALT + Left click, then drag in the relevant direction. Anyway, the reason I feel people take Flash on F (for me anyway) is that your Flash (F) button is closer to your Ultimate (R) and is ergonomically easier to press. Having flash on D means using your middle finger then your index finger if you were to use your Ultimate, which isn't too comfortable especially for people with long fingers. Having Flash on D means that I would be pressing my Flash with the fingernail of my middle finger. I can't do that since it's not a reliable means of using a game-changing spell. The reason I feel people take Flash on D is that they are likely playing with 3 fingers, with their index finger starting on E instead of R, and reaching over to press their Ultimate (R) when required. Since Ultimates are usually on a long cooldown like Flash, they may think that they shouldn't require a finger on them 100% of the time, and feel that using their pinky, which is our weakest finger, to press Q which in general is a poke and skill shot (Ezreal, Jarvan, Aatrox, Caitlyn, Zed etc) or mobility spell (Vayne) unreliable. Stillllllllllllll probably down to personal preference.
yea the last line is the part that matters. Everyone is different. BUT THIS IS THE GROUNDBREAKING REASON TO WHY YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE FLASH ON F... If you tilt and start typing too fast and miss press the enter key then saying FUCK YOU!!! will cause you to flash. lel. anyway... Maybe they do use 3 fingers so they can rest the pinky on shift for easy attack move kiting. maybe they can easily push R and D almost simultaneously to perform a flash kick with lee sin and having it on F just makes it difficult. I do use flash on D and I do use G to ping and control to back ping. spacebar is great for me to re center my screen while leaping around as lb or checking up on another lane while I farm as a jungler. I think this is the greatest part of the game, we all use slightly different styles (with obvious strong choices being picked up by majority of players (hence a meta forming) but many things are done differently by everyone and we all still win sometimes so I think there is no right or wrong. Like you said its more comfortable for some people to push certain keys and others prefer something else. all I know is after my few years of playing I would die alot if I changed the keybinding of flash now.

thank fuck you sorted out that quinn blind being so strong... I have a much greater preference for real blinds than "psuedo". Graves it felt ok to be smoke screened, and it was quite unique! Until some meddling rioter steps in an thinks oh lets just re use this since we can't think of anything better to put in this champion re work. the blind quinn was giving in 5.23 you just felt cheated some how. I mean at least when teemo blinds you you can still "see" you just cant hit anything (with autos), quinn on the other hand you don't know wich way to run or anything cos virtually the whole screen is black! and you are probably dead before it goes away.

But hey like you said, it's your choice, but the people who make the right choice get rewarded. Its as simple as that.
Ok so maybe I was being a little melodramatic.. but still this is the thing, I once had Facebook but made the choice to opt out for various reasons. like you say the "right"choice will be rewarded but why is it the right choice? at least offer the equal option for other social media...
