  1. Ezreal Rework

    Ok phew... the word "rework" scared me. I was about to rant about how disappointed I am in Riot for reworking an incredibly unique adc that offers a different kit than the "traditional" adc... but they are just changing his w and his model. Probably a much needed change tbh. His current w is pretty garbage.

    Hey congrats!

    I like this idea too. Dez and I traded roles the second game and I think it's safe to say we both enjoyed offrolling,
  4. MCL IV Teams and Schedule

    @MadCast: Mike Not sure if it is mentioned in the original thread, but how do we determine blue side / red side? Are all four teams playing at the same time (this might impact streaming if someone is streaming)? Also, were we intended to play one team three times?

  8. My Current Take on League

    I wouldn't necessarily agree that top lane is more about helping the team. If anything, I feel the top lane has remained the steadiest among the five positions. People can still play tanks to farm in lane and look for a tp play, or people can still play bruisers and try to force kills and get an early tower. But it certainly is true that the team needs to follow up on the jungler. Because of this, the top lane "I'm going to take your tower" mentality and style of play has inevitably decreased. This contradicts what I just said, but I feel the top laner is able to ignore his jungler more easily than the bot lane should. Adding to that, I often force myself to take an extremely awkward path to assist my jungler that I would never do in the past. In the past it used to be that you left the jungler if he was overextended in the river by his own doing. Now it feels like I have to force myself to go to the river to help him because I know the game is weighted more heavily from this one play. To add to your discussion on damage as a whole, I sometimes I do feel it is over the top. I will be playing Braum or Ali and just get decimated by the combo of an itemless Zoe. A Tiamat Talon will slam his face on his keyboard and do 80% of my hp without an auto attack. And to answer Support Welfare's question, I think the longer game would be more beneficial to League. Riot has made it known in the past that they do not want longer games, though. If the games were longer, champions like Vayne and Jinx could really come online if the team played properly. This could allow teams to build compositions around snowballing or the late game. Now you just can't build a late game team and reasonably expect to win the game in a solo queue setting. Games hardly exceed 30 minutes it seems, so it is just a battle of which mage or bruiser can snowball and take control of the game first.
  9. My Current Take on League

    I want to start a discussion about general thoughts on League. I wanted to hear thoughts on the current state of everyone’s mental, whether you are having fun playing, or maybe some encouraging words. I feel like making this thread because I've played this game for so long and it means a lot to me. I’ve been playing League since January of 2014 (I believe) and I am going through a severe burnout phase that I have never gone through before. I have no desire to play this game or maintain my rank. It has gotten to the point where I have decided that I am going to let myself decay because I seriously dread having to play ranked so that I can avoid decay (the decay process is different in my rank than in most). Most people would probably read this and think I just need a break. In my opinion, I take breaks from this game more frequently than the average player with the most recent break coming about two and a half weeks ago. After these breaks I generally feel rejuvenated and ready to play. As I’ve said already, that was not the case this time and I just can’t get the fire back that I had in the past. In today’s game, the jungler decides the game. I find it annoying that one single player is unable to make mistakes in the game or else all map pressure is lost, towers are lost, and the enemy team slowly constricts you. I feel I enjoy the game the most when playing the jungle, as support is just stale to me and my impact on the game is minimal compared to a few patches ago. Although jungle is more playable for me right now, I still feel like I’m not having fun. I’m not trying to go off and sound like Hashinshin, but I think it might contribute to my problem. I could go on, but I want to hear your thoughts as well.
  10. Tangental Rant/Advice?

    The meta does not matter until higher diamond. The amount of misplays and horrible macro in low elo are generally what determines the game over its course, not the composition of the teams. At one point in time I was Platinum 1 with two wins into my diamond promos. I lost the next three games and tilted down to Platinum 4, similar to you while playing the same champion (but the meta was the same in this case). Maintaining your positive mentality and not raging at every mistake your team does will improve your play. I don't know how many times I can preach this to people I talk to in the community. When I was lower elo, I used to get EXTREMELY tilted by the announcer saying "An ally has been slain" 600 times in one game and I had to disable her voice. You said the meta had an impact on your gameplay, and that is fine. As a player, you have to adapt to the unfavorable meta switch for Zac and perhaps try to pull off more cheese ganks or something (I don't jungle so I have no idea).
