    I don't usually leave the Champion Select, if I do it's because we are missing a role or I know for sure that someone will troll so we will loose the game, other than that, I never leave.

    The queue dodge penalty in normals is so low that it's almost always worth it if you can be even reasonably sure that your team is going to be unpleasant. 5-10 minutes of browsing random shit on the web is better than 40 minutes of listening to AP jungle olaf complain about tank support malzahar's build.

    I rarely have any games like those, haven't had one for over 2 weeks now. :3

    I had a guy that called TOP!! instantly once, me and my mate decided to pick a ridiculous bottom lane, so we go Zhao/Irelia (its funny, try it), he then swaps to MF and starts raging at us when we tell him we are going bot. Dont call the lane if you dont plane on going to it!

    Last night, was playing lux, and other team had an alistar.

    Anyways, at one point 3 of them were ganking me right as I left bot to head up to mid, I drop to about 20%, and then Alistar knocks me back, launching me through the wall to safety. I love when stuff like that happens

    They got the kill on me later though, our singed accidently flinged their Darius towards me when I was really low, I would have gotten away if it wasn't for that >.<.

    More annoying to me is when I am spearing people with Nidalee and their hp stays at 20 right after a hit and by being super further away from them, they still make it.

    One more thing, I ignite and the bastard's pot saves him. D:

    I've had so many "misses" with the second half of lux's Q, makes me so sad. It's supposed to continue traveling after it hits someone and snare a second target. So many times it'll hit one person, and even if there's no minions around, it won't grab the second one behind them.

    Or when I ult and they're clearly in the beam, but they don't get hit. (No banshee's veil either).

    The line that is put down before the ult doesn't accurately represent the hitbox if it's fired at an angle. I don't remember why, but where the laser hits is a little bit off of where the red line is.

    The one thing I hate about Lux is her ult. When I ult someone, and the ray is clearly on top of the champion, no damage happens, this thing has annoyed me so many times.. God damn it.

    Yeah, that's what's happened to me a ton of times. Had a double kill lined up(our jungler got jumped but he got both of them extremely low), I go to fire it, it goes THROUGH both of them and they take no damage.

    I raged.

    Its perspective thing, the beam visual is a bit higher of ground so when it appears to cross something it might just be in front of it :d.
    This is common problem with all the shooters that are not top down.

    Yup, so the little red laser is right on top of them, and then they don't take damage. it's kind of annoying.

    Any decently rated ADC's want to duo queue? I'm looking to get up to 1500 for war hero and am tired of some of the (for lack of a better word) downers which plague the 1400's.

    Anyways let me know, Zulandia (NA servers).

    Damn right it is.

    Some times I even click R and aim with the blue marker and some times it doesn't do any damage... It's pretty annoying.

    IF you don't find someone pick strong mid/top laners and roam. It's not enough to win your lane! You have to win the lanes for your teammates as well.

    Mid lane can roam easily for top push the lane, gank mid or lane gank bot when drag is up/spawning soon.

    Or you play whatever you play best because any role can carry if you are good at playing it.

    Ahh... First game in 3 days. Been to the hospital for a quick surgery.

    Nothing feels better than to get in-game, have your jungle Jax leave after 10 minutes, then proceed to carry your team as Eve mid.

    I went 18-2-11 and we absolutely dominated the enemy team, after I successfully ganked top and bot a couple of times.

    What a great day...

    Isn't it obvious that you shouldn't play something you don't know how to play although it's quite strong?

    The thing is you have to make an impact on the game and the biggest impact on the game (as a laner) can be made by roaming. Winning the lane is good but if you really want to win, you ward enemy buffs and gank other lanes. Winning the lane is quite often not enough to win the game.

    The reason i said top and mid is that top is the lane which snowballs the hardest even with small advantages (even an early gank top which wasn't succesful but forced the enemy to burn health pots can be enough) and mid has the lane in the center of the map, allowing it to roam 2 lanes (instead of only 1 for the other 2 lanes) and being near buffs, allowing for counterjungling.

    AD has the biggest impact late game but in solo queue most games are decided early - mid game (so many poeple surrender at 20 although they would have had the far better late game team) where ad carries don't have that much of an impact and are easily taken out by a fed bruiser.
    (Before someone attacks me for this: AD carries scale so well with items that their early-mid-late game depends more on items than on levels = if you are able to kill the enemy botlane often enough, you can be already in "late" mid game or late game from your power level.)

    You can carry as a jungler but you rely on others a bit more (if all 3 lanes push you can only counter gank and you have to trust your lanes to use the advantages you gave them [ganks cost the jungler exp + farm, kills can compensate]).
