    How Goes the New Season?

    What are the goods and the bads of the new season? Aside from the placement matches.

    Well...
    At least on low Elo, Warwick is a beast on the jungle.. too bad his abilities are so unhelpful to his teammates, but still, i think now it`s still a valid choice, his ult is nice, but he really needs his team to know what they`re doing on late game, since he`s kinda squishy and has no run away mechanisms or cc

    most warwicks i see build extremely tanky and lifesteal more than you can do to them outside the ad carry which they will jump. or they jump whoever tries to jump his team's carry.

    Also Vi is still extremely good. She can clear quickly and efficiently and gank really hard level 3+.

    Man, I stopped playing after a few games. I may not be a great player, but my qualifying rounds or whatever they're called landed me in s4 last season, and I got to s3. It may not seem like much to everyone else, but it meant something to me. This season? Straight to b3, then on down to b4 bc elo hell. Its like league wants me to fail, so they match me with the worst players against somewhat better players, but not better than me so I still end up with 10/3/15 (without any support from anyone, of course) or something just so they can rub in my face how no matter what I do, I'm gonna lose.

    I'll try again in a month, maybe.

    Last season I quit ranked as soon as I hit Gold 5, and it was a pleasant surprise to get back into gold after placement matches. I did snag up a few "meh, he's unranked" comments before I did, though.

    The journey to my current Gold 2 was relatively fast - 'only' a ~100 games. So far climbing the ladder is a breeze, and I didn't lose any of my promo series, though there were a few close calls.

    It really brings out the best in me to learn new things and pick up new playstyles. I'm watching a ton of video guides by pants are dragon, jeremy and phylol, and trying out new stuff. I feel kinda badass when I get the lastpick and opportunity to counterpick an enemy support, or to coordinate with my ADC and pick a support that he wants for his playstyle.

    Rough - I play supp main.

    I am stuck in a loop it seems. I am in S1 getting to G5. I have been in this promos (and I have this all written down due to how many times it has take me)...
    Every time I fail promo I win the next 2-3 games instantly and then promo loop starts again

    9 times promos. Failed all 9- Must be me right?

    in those 9 promos.... (so out of possible 27 games there were 24)

    11 afk
    9 rage quit
    5 troll feeding (ie 14 deaths by 20th minute)
    3 teemo jungle.
    1 taric jung

    My KDA for those promos only as supp is 1.3 / 4.1/ 25.9

    I cannot do anything more! frustrates the hell out of me.
    Any time I get a somewhat decent ADC (by that I mean doesn't tower dive a thresh at lvl 2) we rock Bot lane every single time. Only to find other lanes fed hard.

    Been quite enjoying it at the moment, as a toplane main. Only played my promos and a few rankeds on top of that since I dislike doing rankeds but been playing a ton of normal games. Current meta seems pretty interesting, lots of choices that you can do with the tp/smite and tankies champions being super good again.

    Thank you Sylessnecole for the sick signature!

    I got so mad at placement matches. went 8-2 and was top 2 in gold/xp earned in every game. Still ended up in Silver 3 (!!!!111one). So I stopped playing, started 2 days ago and managed to get from Silver 3 to Silver 1 instant. My record now is 18 games and 15 wins. Will still play more Hots though.

    I had shitty placement matches. Started in Silver 3... ouch. Climbing to plat 5 was quite easy. But now the struggle is real. Was even in plat 4 for a couple of games. Lost them all due to really really shitty teams and I mean really shitty. I'm no way good enough to carry 3 retards around my current ELO . Back to plat 5. Got back in to promo's again within 3 games. Lost due to 1 feeding team and one just general outplay of the opossing team.

    Now? Again in my promotion series to plat 4. Hoping for some teams that will atleast go even. Goal is Diamond 5 this season. Lets hope for some decent teams in my rise to diamond 5. Doubt I will have that kind of luck.

    It's not that bad. I actually skipped a divisions 3 times. Like I said Climbing to plat 5 was not that hard for me.
