    So I've been playing with a friend who's Gold and has 1800 wins, and we go against 30's(I'm 23 so I'm still a bit new), first game I went 21/7/15 and somehow we still manage to lose as bot lane fed like crazy while I topped as akali. Then a few games later I go 14/2/12 and we have a Nautilus jungle while build AP and he calls me and my friend bad when we're carrying. Sometimes this game frustrates the shit out of me. I seriously hate going in by myself at 23 even though I do good when by myself, teammates lose games.

    Any team who has Tryndamere seems to win for some reason whether it's on mine or the enemy team.... IT HURTS!!
    You've probably never heard of him.

    Then you pick Tryndamere.

    Forever winning!

    2 games in a row.. all on my back the 1st game. 1st game my entire team fed except me, so the enemy team got cocky and I cleaned up twice.
    2nd game, we were winning hard and our adc dced. hard to rebound off that, but I got a penta kill, and a quadra right after each other and still lost

    quite frustrating

    Gah, yesterday a ranked game 3vs3 against a Trynd/Diana/Teemo. We were ahead 20 to 5 or so (Kha'zix/Rumble/Hecarim jungle). Every time we aced them it was hard to get anything done, as the respawn timers are very short at the beginning. We got their inhib turrets down, just not their inhibs.

    After a while teamfights started to go in the wrong direction (their Trynd was actually really good with timing his ult, it was mostly Diana and Teemo that were really bad). Well...after 50m or so, we lost the game. It was a really exciting game (very much a typical 'carried by trynd at lategame'). This all is completely fine with me, as we didn't do enough to stop Trynd apparently.

    What really really really gets to me...is in after game chat...DIANA, who was really really bad, says:
    'gg n00bs, easy win'

    I really really really don't get this, and I know I shouldn't care...but I still do ^^

    Know that feel bro, like when you go awesome as top lane, then the pro "premade" on bot goes 0-7 and 0-8.

    You should be happy instead.
    The fact that there are such less intelligent beings on this world makes you look very smart in comparison.
    Leave the lobby, laugh for a bit, get over it. I say it like it's simple, but meh.

    I dislike all the hate against premade bots I love doing it, but I never enforce it - I can play all roles. Yes, I sometimes get my ass handed to me too, but it's not like I planned it...

    Lately I have been seeing more "premade bot" instant message at the start and I think 'here we go again'. I say, 'so are we, but I'll pick something else'. We are higher in pick order, so for example we go jungle+support (only plays support). Then they either rage or troll pick duo bot. Why can't you even TRY to work with us, or dodge if you really want that duo bot. Now I have to dodge and wait 5 minutes.
    If they are higher pick and still pick ad/support I'll just dodge and save everyone time/problems. I adhere the pick order > call order "rule".

    Currently on a 8 game losing streak. I make mistakes and I'll be the first to admit them but the amount of bad I've seen the last couple games is mind boggling... I play support/jungle mostly and can win games from there but these last games whenever I go support my lane wins but the other lanes feed their opponent and jungler and generally outplays my whole team so I can't make a huge impact as support.

    And then I think let's go Jungle and feed all the lanes! But then there are these people who let their lane free roam all game long (And not get the turret down) or people push so hard they constantly fight under the turret and die because of it... And then I'm just clueless as a Jungler, what the hell can I do about this? Ward for them? I do this but they still die from ganks. Counter-jungle? Yeah good luck when their mid can roam freely turning every single gank in a 3/4 man gank at bot or top... And when I decide to just farm I get flamed for being useless... This game

    Just lost a game that we should not have lost. This is the kind of game that makes you want to find your team irl and beat the crap out of them. By 30 mins my entire team was over 10 kills each, less then 5 deaths, enemy team had less then 6 kills each and over 5 deaths. 40 mins. My team starts focusing Garen and Jarven, lets the enemy get every dragon, and baron.
    I'm the minister of mistakes. I'm the shaman of sh*tstorms. If there was a f**k-up pope. I'd have a 3 foot hat!

    When arguing online I like to use big words. Because by the time they're done googling it, they have forgotten what their point was.

    There is something about Bot premades isn't there?
    Had a match with an Ashe and Nidalee premade bot and rengar who queued with them top, 20 minutes later Ashe and Nida have fed to high heaven with no sign of a ward anywhere, All this time Rengar is feeding Kennen top and I'm getting abuse hurled at me from bot lane for not ganking enough (I refuse to gank if people don't ward their lane and then overextend). Ashe and Rengar's farm was below 50 cs by 20 minutes, I wanted them to explode.

    I wonder when Riot is going to realize some champions are beyond balanced. Yes, I'm talking about Renekton, he's like the new Darius.

    The thing about that is that he wasn't directly buffed, yet he becomes a powerhouse due to S3 itemization changes. That's also why Corki, who used to be part of the Big 3 of ADCs in S2 (Graves, Ezreal, Corki), is one of the weaker ADCs in S3 now.

    I didn't see that many ADC item changes in season 3.

    There really weren't any besides BotRK being built on many (not all) ADC's now. The item helps Vayne have a much easier time early on if they start building it early, Tristana used to be shitty early on but now isn't half bad and is probably the worst ADC to feed in the entire game from my experiences.
    You've probably never heard of him.

    AD became less expensive and AS became more expensive in general. I can't recall how crit was effected, but since it was on the main AS items, it became a tad more expensive too.

    Man this game really gets under my skin at times, my friend invites me to a group and we were just doing normal 5's and I didn't realize it at first but everyone in the party was gold and one silver(i'm level 26) well I go top with akali and face a Lee Sin and god damn I was outplayed all fucking game. I have no problem saying it but I was destroyed by Lee and then next game I face a Riven that well outplayed me too. Both the people I faced top had 1500+ wins and were gold while I'm here with just my 100 wins. Seriously it just frustrated the living shit out of me to the point where I was about to punch my fucking screen. /end rant

    Ah, the good old 'outleveled/outplayed'. No problem most of the time, unless they are dicks about it. You can learn A LOT from players like that. But to be fair, Lee is a pretty good counter against Akali, Riven does okay too. Now add a Garen to your list and you'll be all set

    Oh, and when you hit level 30, you will still have these players face you with 20 runepages and a ton of experience. But there's also 1500W people who can't do a thing. MMR, you really need a working replacement.

    How many wins does your friend have? I think the reason you were paired up with people like that was because of your friend.

    Two of them have 2k+ wins and the other two where 800 and 1500 something wins. So that is most likely what it is. I mean usually I don't mind getting my ass kicked cause I'm learning but as Hybrid said they were in fact talking shit and honestly it usually doesn't bother me but tonight it just got really annoying. I mean back when I played Halo 2 from release till late 2007 I started off bad but then played with people who were good and competed in MLG at a semi-pro level and I picked up in no time so that's why I'm trying to stick with it like this but good god sometimes it's really bad when I get my ass handed to me.

    She has an exceptional late game. Always had one, and it got better still. Problem always was getting there. Even in S2, if you fed Tristana, you could kiss your ass goodbye. (That requires some serious backbending, I suppose...) Once she hits 3 items, she's going to obliterate stuff. It's that simple, you just need to keep her from getting there. BotRK helped a bit as it shores up her very weak mid game in exchange for a slightly weaker early game (which, imo, is a good choice to make).

    As to ADC changes:
    * People build more bruisery, Randuin's is nearly a given these days as is Aegis
    * AD is cheaper
    * The holy trinity of items lost stats
    * Mastery changes
