Is this for a BSc undergrad thesis? Honestly, most of those, just pick something vague and kind of interesting. Don't worry about "has already been explored in great detail": that's to be expected at the BSc level. About two months in, you'll decide your original plan was stupid and you need to do something totally different, which is why the "vague" part of your proposal is so important. I've seen people just do like "a mobile educational game" or "a programming language" or "a search engine" for their BSc project. As long as you're halfway competent, you (or more likely your supervisor) will find a way to stick something unique or novel into it. It doesn't have to be Guernica, just a demonstration of your abilities.

If it's a MSc dissertation, a lot of those are just "I read a paper that had a really good idea and then decided to implement it because nobody else implemented it yet". Or, if you're more theory based, "I read and paper and decided to extend it a little bit because nobody else has done that yet". Has your friend been doing a literature survey?

If it's a PhD dissertation, your friend is fucked and should probably not be doing a PhD.

Sorry, that wasn't clear at all! I'll edit the post in a minute. It's just a BSC dissertation, so I guess not much is expected. The idea of a game, e.g. mobile game sounds appealing, especially for him, I think his main issue is the whole "has to have little research in the chosen field". Thank you for your help :)

He's wrong here , lethality MF prefers maxing Q for those huge chunks , the last time E max mf was a thing was a year ago when Thunderlord was spammed on her . Everything else he says is a 100% true though

EDIT : Seems there's both sides to this argument play whatever MF you prefer either consistency with E(this feels more like an AP support MF thing ) or one Q kick them out of lane

Important to note: Bouncing Qs still do a shit ton of damage even at rank 1, so why not have the obnoxious poke from E AND half health people with bouncing Qs?

I think the principle is quite reasonable; giving players the uniform ability to file a complaint against players who negatively impact their gaming experience. However, I think that A. they're too strict (sometimes a bit of trash talk can be healthy/part of the game) B. it's heavily misused, we all know how often people call for reports on players for just having a bad game out of spite. How efficiently and fairly the reports and dealt with by Riot is a bit harder to assess, would need some actual figures, and some way of assessing the rate of punishments dealt which are "fair" and which are not, which would be very hard to collect data on due to it being largely subjective and requiring human judgment when there's thousands upon thousands of report cases per day. Bottom line: it's difficult to tell, but the principle makes sense to me

Depends on yours and the enemies team comp. Some games you can hard carry from minute 5 after a double kill, some games you could be 30-0 and totally useless. Winning consistently as ADC is about doing the most damage you can while taking the least damage you can, you rarely have to "hard carry" any games imo

Grievous wounds doesn't counter champions with a lot of healing abilities, it's just a countermeasure to mitigate their effectiveness. Plus you have to sink at least 800g in to a GW item, which is infeasible early game for ADs, and Morello's only works on champs below a certain health threshold. I do see your point but I don't think the interaction is as linear as you're making it out to be.

Hey look a salty NA pleb yelling at another salty NA pleb about a trolling NA pleb. Disgusting North Americans at its finest folks!

Yup pretty simple. I can also conclude that you never buy ninja tabi as well.

I'll throw it in there. It's really not likely you'll climb without good game knowledge if you're d5~d3, it's just really up to luck.

My best advice is: Go on a gold/silver account and play the same champions you would on your main. Get yourself out of your confort zone, you are now playing against bad players, now REALLY think your every move. Every rotation. Don't stay bot lane stomping the enemy and farming champions. Go as you would in a diamond game.

Watch informative videos, LS has really good content on laning as and ADC. Other than that watch pro players like Doublelift or Bang go about their gameplay. What do they do when they're losing, what they do when they're winning. Why are they doing that?

Only when you actually understand the game and learn it you won't think about it anymore, you'll just do it because you've been in this situation many times and know this is the best way to go about it.

I really like this idea, with the whole exiting my comfort zone. Thank you. My only issue would be, how do I differentiate a well thought out play from one that only worked because they were silver/gold? Seems like an obvious question but y'know
