Enemy teamcomps with a lot of CC are usually poor choices to pick Xerath for too.

    That can be said about a lot other AP carries, though... but anyway, Monado's comment sounded more generic as in "WHY WOULD YOU EVER" when Xerath can be a beast when played properly and with a CDR-centric build.

    He's just harder to play than your average APC.

    I already said that it sounded like you said no one should ever pick Xerath. You never mentioned a Nidalee before.

    I want to play these Xeraths who apparently root themselves in the middle of the lane.

    Edit: I hate long whining so I'm just gonna say I was playing skarner jungle, was doing well but didn't matter because the team wasn't watching their map so we ended up getting aced to a stupid dive that I constantly told people to back off of, then got raged at man wtf why didn't you save us. 7/2/6 to 8/6/12 because we lost every fight after that

    They probably won't, because it's only one report each. Stupid people are also very lucky
    Meh.

    Liking the system so far besides me losing 3 of the 4 games I've played so far and dropping a whole tier even though I was way positive kdr and winning my lane in all the games so far, just had a dc in 2 of my games and the other one was kinda uncarryable. Just hate how now I dropped a whole tier and only have 50 LP in this tier now so it's going to be extremely difficult to get back in the tier I was in. :/ (Not QQing about "OMG I BELONGZ IN DIAMOND!!@!@!" This just really made me angry that I have to try a ton harder to get back in the tier i was already doing well in. Whatever, life goes on.)



    Btw, didn't Riot say you would only go down to 60 at the max if you dropped a tier? Why am I at 50? :/

    Edit: Finally won another game; I lost lane horribly and was 0-6 about 30 minutes in, so I suicide split pushed while my team 4v5'd them and we won. I hate how random this game can be with how you win or lose. Lose 3 games in a row where you dominate your lane and do well throughout the game, and then win one where you feed profusely and jokingly split push and die. Love it.

    Fucking leavers. I should have won my last game, but because this corki's friend left with bull shit internet issues, we lost. The other team started roaming with all towers up because they could get away with it, so repetitive 3 man ganks mid gave then a fed Ryze. Only one worth a damn on their team. I destroyed the cho I was against and the diana jungler. I could 3v1 the cho, diana and lulu. I could go toe to toe with Ryze and beat him 1v1, almost beat him 2v1. However, because we were 4v5 they were able to push towers so it was a war of attrition.

    Playing top lane and after some time I notice that it's suddenly a 2v1 lane. Why? Because our bot lane lost so hard that their bot lane felt they could 1v2 them easy and 2v1 top so I would stop zoning their top.

    I feel that bot lane will NEVER go even. One side must lose horribly at all times.

    Someone picked Trundle to face Riven, and then fed like a boss. Apparently his first time losing to Riven as Trundle, so I asked him if it was his first time playing Trundle. Couldn't do anything as Draven, as either Riven would bee line for me, or Kayle would rip my head off after getting fed with assists

    well the new system hasn't changed anyone drive to actually win. Getting nothing but, trolls, feeders, and blamers still. Still losing every game.

    I'm actually going to agree with Pandragon on this. Seems to be many more people doing such acts tonight... Kind of weird really, my brother had 2 games of him being on a team of 3 vs 5. He was screaming.

    Teemo handed them the game. He would farm lanes through the entire game while we team fought, then after we all died he would go kill 1 or 2 of them, then run or die.

    Yeah, my first ranked game of the season gave me a Teemo mid who made their Ahri legendary.

    Logic tells me to wait a bit until all the idiots are filtered around, but on the other hand, I'm kinda excited to do ranked anyway.

    Apparently I was deluding myself into thinking I could play Ez...And since Corki is bad unless fed, and I get reported if I play Ashe, and I hate all the other adcs. I have to queue dodge games where I have to adc.

    Protip: The people who say they are gonna report you rarely do unless you are flaming a lot. Not like the tribunal is gonna punish someone for playing Ashe anyways so if you are innocent you have nothing to worry about.
