Give me a reason to keep tryharding in ranked by N1izmo in leagueoflegends

Right now in ranked, it is a shitstorm, everyone is just placing in and doing whatever they want. If you really get mad at stuff like this, take a break, play some norms, if you don't want to play norms, play a different game for a while. Come back a week later and try again, if you don't enjoy the game after that, maybe just take a break from ranked all together. The game is to have fun, if you don't have fun, don't play the game.

Invading, tracking jungler, and farming. This will ensure that you are far ahead of your enemy jungler. Champs like Shyv are good for this exact reason.

He is not really that good top, he has long cooldown's and doesn't have the best damage overall. He has good tools in fights and ganks but by limiting him top, he just fails to use any of his tools effectively.

Usually if your ADC has relic, it is just a farming lane and you job is mostly to ensure they can farm well and protecting them later in fights as ADC's who take relic are usually late game champs.

You can stun if you have good reaction time and put a orb really close to your body and then use E on it.

Dodging in your placement games? by Dibda in summonerschool

[–]NotRivenMid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think placements are based on MMR and your wins/losses from your placements. Meaning if you dodge all 10 games you will have the same MMR but still have 10 losses which will lower your placements.

They mostlikely use it for the CD on flash and smite as it is the main way gragas engages and it just makes him better when he can do it more often.

Titanic doesn't to that much damage until you have more HP, therefore to make it worth while to upgrade, it would be best to have it upgraded later on like the 3rd of 4th item.

Everything is still kinda new with runes and champ changes so games snowball more. So yes early/mid game champs will be better than late game champs in general right now.

I don't think you want to try and do extended trades, just do smaller trades and heal back up after. It also gives more movement speed to trade and kite a little bit better compared to PTA which gives some more damage but it won't matter as much.

I think both Galio and Lissandra can both deal with assassins pretty well if played correctly, they are also both good late game teamfighting champs with good waveclear. Sadly, I don't think either of them are good in the current meta right now.

If you want to get better at jungle, I would suggest playing a solo lane. It helps you understand more about certain matchups and more about what laners need during specific moments. Top would be mine suggestion but mid is fine too.

Renekton is not really that good this patch, he is still very weak compared to many other champs and he still loses to all of the top tiered top laners like Nasus, Illaoi, Teemo, Singed, and more. (Based on winrates)

Players take unseal spellbook for lower summoner CD and the ability to have TP/Ignite for early game and switch it out later on. Howerever, I do feel like having a keystone like PTA or Eletracute does more than ignite will do during a game and therefore I would recommend to take one of these instead of Spell Book.

Questions on new season by bugchcuck in summonerschool

[–]NotRivenMid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Since placement is based on your MMR it will mostlikely place your in Bronze 5 unless you get something extreme like 10 wins. your MMR is already lower than a Bronze 5 player and placements won't increase your MMR that much.

Annie and Malz are both champs that do different things. Annie is a burst mage that has good AOE engage and pretty easy combos. Malz is a pushing mage that is good at locking down 1 target and killing people who are caught out. Yes malz might be seen as OP but you have to understand that they do different things and shouldn't be compared 1 to 1. Malz will almost always be better in a 1 v 1 because that is just the nature of his kit but he does have weaknesses that make him weak, especially in certain metas. For one he locks himself when he ults making him very important to position correctly and time abilities well.

How do you carry full teams of feeders in the mkd game with Khazix? by GarthbrooksXD in summonerschool

[–]NotRivenMid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well one problem is flex queue in general, in flex people don't try as much and match making is often broken and can not match similar skilled opponents. It compares similar to normals are people are generally not trying and don't care to win or lose. Another thing is that Kha needs to create a lot of pressure early game and that is your only win condition, he does not do extremely well in the late game when everyone is grouped so you have to make use of his kit when people are still in laning and roaming.

I can tell you from my experience last season when I finished Plat 5 10LP and went 3/7 in my placements, I landed myself in Silver 2.

Top Lane Meta Woes by MightyTuba in summonerschool

[–]NotRivenMid 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I don't want to hate on SRO or any other person who does clickbaity videos, but they are often done on lower ranked accounts or even in norms where the players are way below their skill level. In this case for this video, this was on his smurf that was gold 2 at the time when he was recording this and he was against a gold 1 rengar.

On probuilds.net, I have seen 0 people build BORK on Tristana and only a minority few build it on Twitch or Kog, it seems it is situational or a no buy in most games.

Tell Me About Tanks in General: Should they have a Weapon? Or just tons of Armor? by derpmcturd in summonerschool

[–]NotRivenMid 6 points7 points  (0 children)

In general, tanks want to just build resistances and supportive types items to help their team, tanks generally have high base damages that scale well with CDR so it would be better to just buy more CDR than to spend more gold on damage items. Tanks also "usually" have bad scalings so buying damage is often wasted.
