    My second diamond border player in a normal draft. He was bored, didn't play seriously (no boots after 8 deaths to mid camping jungler) and say, literally, that "diamond doesn't care about normal". Selfishness makes my blood boil.
    I'll be honest, I don't even care about normal. I just pick someone like Tryndamere and have a fun time and if I'm taking normal seriously it's only because I'm practicing a new champion or brushing up on a few things. Otherwise normals are just for fun and I can't take seriously at all.

    Duronos there's a difference between playing for fun and trolling in normals.

    But I literally don't care if I lose in normals is also what I'm trying to say.

    so you shouldn't. I don't care about winning or losing in any game, if more people thought that way then the community would be perfect

    Please don't play normals with that attitude. Do you have any idea how god damn annoying it is to have a 1/10 Tryndabad top who when asked to stop being a retard replies with "lol it's just normal, why care you nolife?"? It might be funny for you but it sure is not for everyone else. -.-

    If you pick someone that you know you're going to lose with, I'd say that's trolling in a game, and that's not really fun, Mr. Duronos.

    You don't care if you lose but you are still trying to win right? You aren't purposefully picking/playing much worse than normal because you don't care, right? I think that's what most people would be upset about.
    Light or darkness...which are you blinded by?

    Yes. OF course you will play to practice in normal games as well, but you should TRY to win, not just play around and try to 1v3 just because you can. There are a great many people, myself included, that play Normals seriously and don't want to play ranked. So the effect of having a troll is the same as to you, except for the fact that my ELO loss isn't visible. And when it's a Diamond player, meaning that as far as I'm concerned you should be somewhat of a "role model", it makes it all the worse. Stereotypical "look at me, I am good and don't give a shit about anyone else" attitude is enraging.

    Picking a champion to have fun is one thing. Picking one just to try to bring the team down on purpose is another.
    I think what Duronos meant he does is the former. If someone is experienced enough, they'll win with a lot of less "viable" champions.

    Usually, I try to pick champions the team needs in blind pick matches, but sometimes you just want to have fun, you know?
    And sometimes your friend goes "support" Kayle with full-on retard AP/Attack speed builds, and we win, and that's pretty fun, imo.

    On top of that, most of the champions are somewhat viable now, unlike back when Evelynn and Twitch were purposely nerfed because Riot had deemed permanent stealth to be unfun for the game.

    The worst of that is when someone tells you to pick someone else because the other pick is supposedly more OP because pros use him, thereby making him strictly better. You have a support Janna, the enemy has Soraka and Vayne, and you wanna pick MF to counter Soraka's sustain and synergize with Janna's CC? Nope, unacceptable because Ezreal, Corki, and Graves are strictly better than her.

    Although now, that makes Tryndamere one of the weakest picks because all the nerfs he received really added up, and his kit is very outdated compared to the new releases, so it is not surprising that people would get on you for picking him, other than in low ELO (negative W/L totals) games.

    I didn't mean I troll or bad mouth my own team. XD

    Meant that I don't care if I win or lose and I rarely type anything in during normals.

    Still, people do get on others just for a champion pick, even if the raging is warranted (i.e. picking nerfed Evelynn pre-rework).

    As a Kayle "support" player, I fixed that for you. Why do I do that on Kayle? Because I always get stuck supporting bad ADCs that don't know how to farm and would end up costing us the game if I didn't carry.

    Heh, I guess I'm overly sensitive to those things. Whenever I play a normal and someone blatantly sucks or trolls the #1 excuse is "lol, this is just a normal, I don't care.". >....>

As the game went on though, their adc got strong like all adcs do lategame and since we didn't have one....well, they had a huge advantage. Eventually, after a few brawls, their adc team managed to almost ace us and they took down all our turrets insanely fast. I don't know, pisses me off and now I don't even feel like playing for awhile because of that heartbreaking loss.

    And man, if I were the adc and the guy who dced was support, the game prob woulda been over before the 30 minute mark tbh. It just sucks that of all people, the adc dced lol.
    Quoting this because almost the exact same thing just happened. 53 minute game, adc dced at ~20mins. We had 1 nexus turret down but could never get that last one. A couple aces later, they won. I really hate losses like these, and why does it always have to be the adc.....
