    Killing minions in League of Legends grants an amount of experience upon their death. The experienced gained by the champion is determined by the type of minion as well as the current length of the game. Experience from minion deaths is split between all champions within 1200 range.
    I really didn't know the formula for an enemy champion kill oO

    So I hate to be "that guy" for asking this, but is anyone else sick of people being too serious in blind pick games?

    I mean, of course, you should try to win, obviously. But these days, it almost feels like a chore to do blind pick games, because people are too focused on following "the meta".

    Heck, I feel I even have to fall into it myself simply to compete with the other team.

    I mean, obviously everyone wants to win, but sometimes those wins just feel empty.

    (Also kind of why I'm a lot more into Dota 2 these days, since there, you're not forced into a meta and there's no "that guy has to go that lane".)

    Last night was playing in premade blind pick with other 2 friends and I really wanted to try KATA bot, and my support friend picked anivia.
    Ofc we have been flamed from the beginning and after 3 minutes I wrote to one of the guy "Mate if u really want the META go drafted or ranked please, bye bye." and ignored him...but that is cause I was really upset for being playing with 200ms...

    IMHO blind is the place where u can test something odd, bot are not an option.

    Yeah, I agree(even though at my current summoner level, I do take normals kinda seriously because I need them to get to 30). I've done interesting stuff like Shaco, Mundo, Gragas and Heimerdinger support(most of those are supporting by killing shit).
    Attackspeed Malphite is interesting as well(and a friend of mine did Swiftness boots+PD stacking Hecarim jungler that game. We were stomping all over them anyway)

    My friend is really good with support shaco, he can be really useful but u must be good, insane dmg at beginning in lane...
    Watched a 2500 elo match with support gragas and ez mid, I guess support Gragas is the new Lux/Zyra, dont know why tho...

    Because of his ult, duh :P Or maybe because you can zone quite well with his barrels.(Unless you play against danes, they just drink the beer in the barrel before it explodes, or at least they try to)

    Yes probably his ultimate, is like a powerfull version (as u can target that where u want and push ppl close or far) of the Janna's one with no healing.

    i played like 3 games like this earlier tonight, the last one i just got out of we were down by quite a few kills, around 15 or so and down two towers. played akali mid and won my lane and was the only one who managed to keep my towers while destroying the enemies. our adc was pretty bad, no communication would wander out of her lane while there were people in it, had a bad cs score, just not a very good player, but we had a good support zyra and between me and her we managed to get a good engage on a team fight and won it. thankfully my lane was pushed so we duo'ed the last two turrets and nexus before they respawned.

    their adc was fairly good, but he was a huge prick. calling his team downies in the post game chat

    Went vs AI recently with a friend at work because things were going slow, and to make it a bit more entertaining we went things like AS Orianna and AS Annie.
    Thing is, this Soraka goes all raging and insists we are trolling to ruin their game, but of course things go well... Other then that he tries as hard as he can to troll us and killstealed every freaking thing he could.

    In the end of the game, him and a Maokai or something says they are going to report us...?
    Like really. What for? For having fun? We did not make the team lose, not even a tiny bit. Only thing that was silly was that I couldnt do damage on a Malphite with 430 armor...

    I just figure that vs AI and custom games are just for screwing around pretty much... But why go all mad like that for no reason?
    It's not like we came there to fuck up for them. We just wanted to have fun, which we did, but not on others cost.

    Fuck those people really. Just ignore them, and move on.

    vs AI is for trying out builds, having fun, and bads that at the end of their games screenshot the scoreboard, and black out the part where it says it was VS AI.

    So i've been playing some draft pick recently to try and get used to playing different roles and stuff.
    3 games today i've had to quit at the lobby...
    Game one: someone calls mid, selects orianna, 1 minute later " MIDMIDMIDMIDMIDMID I play soraka mid, locks in soraka ignite,"
    Game two: First pick locks lee sin jungle, second pick someone locks in sejuani jungle, third pick locks in rengar jungle" i dodge
    Game three: Same as game 2, just why do these people exist

    In Blind Pick I tend to not give a shit anymore. You should look at the current meta as a WoW instance group composition. 1 Tank, 1 Healer, 3 DPS.

    These things eventually fall into place with every competitive game.

    I wholly agree to conforming to the meta, unless I'm with friends and they want to do something different.

    I think my ranked games have weirder team comps than my normal games sometimes. Just played one as Fiddle support where our only tanky person was Irelia. We just out-damaged them and fiddle fear was enough to stop any initiation.

    I look at it as, bots are where you try the really, really weird things before bringing them to a normal (Jungle Ezreal), normals are for trying new things in a decent environment, and draft and ranked are play to win.

    I also don't really run into the meta freaks you guys do. Everyone just kinda falls into each role with few issues, with bot ending up with a few weird pairs every 5 games or so. No one complains though and I usually win those games because the people know how to play their champs.

    I prefer for people to at least try in blind picks. I'm playing it because I want to win, not because I want someone to dick around with jungle heimerdinger. Personally if you are going to do lolzy things that aren't really going to work I say do it with friends. I don't mind unconventional lanes or anything, but if you are going to do something completely bonkers, like jungle heimer, do it with people you know, so if/when it goes horribly wrong you didn't ruin someone else's game. Though about that jungle hiemer, I was doing 3's with my friend and somehow we got jungle hiemer on our team. After the game I of course stalked his profile and it turns out he was on the rank 6 3v3 team on the NA ladder. Sometimes things make no sense. I guess for people that are that high normals are just a way to mess around, idk.

    But to answer your question better, I'm not really. It's annoying to see people be omg talon mid lane you're not ap scrub and stuff, but I like to win. I understand if they are being serious mode in ranked pick, since it's ranked and all. So I guess people should try to do well in blinds, but they don't need to be super serious.

    Considering some people post screens from their smurf games to brag in the best games screenshots thread AI games disguised to look like normal ones wouldn't be surprising.

    I hate when people take those extremely seriously. I use blind pick for practice and practice only. Whenever I see people take it seriously I just facepalm.

    Yeah I kind of look at normals like that because honestly I rarely play them and if I do it's because I'm practicing a champion or my friends don't want to play ranked and I just tag along.
    You've probably never heard of him.
