    Not had any problems here that aren't usual. I get terrible people fairly frequently... but I always have. Definitely hasn't increased. Maybe you lost a bunch and your MMR dropped so you're with lower people now which is making a difference (normals have a hidden mmr, nothing to do with ranked mmr)?

    I do try to queue with other people usually although lately i've been queuing solo or just with one person a lot and I mean, yeah, you get people who push to tower, can't cs, run into 1v5s, but I figure you're probably always going to get one of those - and there's often one on the other team that we can feed off as well.

    Kids are off school though, as well as adults off work and a lot more alcohol being consumed.

    Oh my god the wukong lightsaber skin. I would give my left testicle just to look it on a modelviewer. Steel legion Nautilus and the undead Garen skin also looked pretty sweet.


    My ex girlfriend hates me now because she picked up dipping pizza in ranch from me. I mean sure its a few extra calories but it's not my fault you're a whore.

    Alright, mods please don't infract me for this but as this is my 5000th post I'd like to write a few things down considering this is the major part of mmoc that I come too.

    Dear LoL section,

    You guys are awesome (even you Firebert and your Tri-Force Vlad build), I've had quite the time in here and I would like to say thank you to each and every one of you for making it fantastic. To start, I was a moderator here awhile back and that was probably the highlight of my time here posting on mmoc because I was more engaged with each person who posted here and outside of one mistake it was good. You guys seriously have one of the better mod teams from what I've seen and you only have three of them and are all highly intelligent people.

    Now I've been on mmoc since early 2009 and I posted here and there but I never really was to interested until they opened up the LoL section (posted in the LoL thread before that) and that's what got me going and when I started to really get productive so to speak. I've enjoyed talking to many of you as well as the occasional debates we have among each other. I'm a big fan of how controlled this section of mmoc is and the only trolls we get are usually people who aren't native to this area of mmoc. I can't tell you how much I'm grateful to be able to talk to anyone here and get something valuable out it, I feel spoiled because of it.

    Here's to another year of the LoL section on mmoc. In classic Duronos style (just call me Josh), YOU GUYS FUCKING ROCK!!!!
    You've probably never heard of him.

    What normal queues have different MMRs?
    I know that ranked soloq, ranked 3s and ranked 5s have all their own MMR, but I am confused about normal game MMR?

    I would like to play ranked only when I feel like I am in super good mood and ready to play for win.
    I would like to play normal summoner rift when I want to play as good as I can to learn, but I do not feel so focused I would like to go to ranked. (such as when I am sick or tired, it would be just raping my own elo to queue ranked then)
    I would like to play other normal queues mostly when I just wanna play, but not necessarily try very hard and goof around.

    But would queueing to other normal queues and playing poorly mean that also my normal summoner rift MMR drops?

    Normals have MMR, same as all queues. However, it doesn't have leagues or promotion series. It's also not (much) affected by other queues. Ranked barely impacts your normal queue if the matchmaker doesn't have enough info to go on just yet.

    That's also the reason some people have a 30min+ queue for normal games.

    You have normal MMR and ranked MMR (solo and team).

    I think normal MMR is all across the board meaning it affects all your games from blind pick, draft, dominion, ARAM, etc (normal modes). Ranked queues have their own 'individual' MMR.

    In ranked I get from S2 to G4 and in normal I can get from unrankeds to P1.

    Never liked playing Shyvana... Then I got her in a ARAM and found her kinda fun.

    Just started playing her in normals and I really like her now, actually. Getting ready for Ranked with her soon. :P

    Also, just won a 4v5 fairly easily, because I stomped top as Shyv in a mirror matchup and our support won mid, since our mid never connected. lol.

    Normals are such a toss up due to how skewed the matches are. I've seen my team's support Sona with her coin item start beat a Zed in mid because ours never connected. I still don't know how it happened and I'm pretty sure that Zed felt bad.

    They should probably make it so the normal MMR gets at least a little influenced by your ranked MMR so that there isn't such a wide gap in skill difference every game.

    Speaking of Shy on ARAM.



    By all means they had us dead to rights. They had all of our turrets down before we got a single of theirs. But somehow we pulled it out of our assess.
