[QUOTE=TrannyAlert;35911767]Well, I hit 30 like 2 weeks ago. The first say week of level 30 was great, I got about a 6 win streak and a positive score, by alot. Recently it's just started going to shit though.[/QUOTE] Just because you're lvl30, doesn't mean you play with every lvl30 player. There's normal elo too. So if you're doing good with your "viable" builds against 600 elo enemies, it doesn't mean it would work against anyone above 1250. You'll start losing. Like now [editline]11th May 2012[/editline] ninja'd
[QUOTE=Flubadoo;35911793]that's because your win streak brought your normal elo too high, and now it's normalizing[/QUOTE] I see. I guess it went too high for me and then it started plummeting, like now. I don't know whether I should stop playing for a week or so or just find someone decent to partner with.
About elo hell, In my opinion I still think it exists. This is my definition of elo hell: under 1200 elo ranked where games are very difficult to win due to trolls/baddies/dcers. There will be a noticeable chunk of games where it's just impossible to win (Usually because someone doesn't contribute to the team at all, making it pretty much a 4v5) and when you win, it's usually because someone got fed and is carrying. Elo hell is possible to get out of but if you're just an above average player then it will take a long time. Some people may argue "oh but im 1600 elo and I still get awful players". That may be true but I think in Elo hell "bad players" are a lot more common and very rarely will you get a player who knows what they're doing. It's a battle of which team is worse.
You just have to constantly win your lane. If you think you're good enough to have higher elo, you'd win 1v1(or at least have decent farm and don't die). If you're losing your lane badly how the fuck do you think you deserve higher elo? "hurr durr junglers no ganks"
In general, people in 1k are better than 1.2k Law of large numbers dictates that with enough games played, you will eventually reach your proper ELO. In my opinion, if you've played >300 ranked games you're pretty much around the ELO you deserve to be.
It took me 200 games to reach 1250 elo (From 980). I reckon my true elo during Season 1 would of been 1300-1400. I was pretty comfortable when I duo queued with my 1400 elo friend and we played in the 1300 elo bracket.
I don't like playing ranked and I haven't even completed my damned prelims. People are so damned stupid in those.
[QUOTE=Twistshock;35912098]I don't like playing ranked and I haven't even completed my damned prelims. People are so damned stupid in those.[/QUOTE] yeah, pretty much. Last game I recall was when our Team Captain refused to ban Shen, flat out refused stating Kennen was a better ban. Guess what champ they picked first.
[QUOTE=Nintendo-Guy;35906813]karma isn't shit, just underplayed as fuck[/QUOTE] No im sure you said she is shit a lot Even tho i showed that statistically proven she is tied #1 with taric

[url=http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2099024]i think all league players that just play this game for *fun* need to see this[/url] Discuss?
Imo normal games are meant for fun and testing out new shit*, of course most people play as seriously as they would in ranked from my experience. *By fun, I don't mean deliberately doing something that would make your team lose or otherwise troll your team. I've gone AP yi botlane with AD carry and utterly stomped the lane. Also tried having an ezio insult me because I picked Veigar for dominion, sure we lost, but I ended up with the most score on my team. I'll watch the whole video once I get home, at college and can't put on sound.
I play LoL for fun because it's fun, I don't care what one person thinks about it. [I]Oh no LoL can't be played for fun, everyone better think the same way as me.[/I]
If I'm not winning in a ranked game then I'm not having fun. But in normal I don't give a fuck if I'm losing or not. [editline]11th May 2012[/editline] also Renegade Ops looks fun

I also have fun when i help my team out.
Just had a good match as Xin Zhao jungle. 8/1 Gonna go downhill again now :c
Riot has to increase the max summoner level from 30 to 100 or something :P
I played a match where someone in my team using olaf wanted to surrend the match because "We are loosing and you are all fucking retarded noobs give up already" (we weren't losing, we only lost a few towers). 1/5 agreed. 15 minutes later, we had destroyed everything in the enemy base. He left the match without saying a word. I realy dislike players that only play to have a perfect victory, and would surrender like this.

[QUOTE=Kendra;35912843]why?[/QUOTE] You reach level 30 way too quickly in my opinion. Either this or a big rework on the matchmaking system.
[QUOTE=TrannyAlert;35912864]Odin? Is that a new Norse Champion.[/QUOTE] Sorry, I probably wrote the name wrong, can't remember who it was. I'm still trying to learn about all the heroes that were added since I stopped playing.

Getting 5 Friends to work together using skype is so much fucking fun

Buying a 3150 champ - Karma or Urgot?
[QUOTE=Flubadoo;35911480]if anything, AP kennen would win the lane harder [editline]11th May 2012[/editline] unless the player is terrible and can land 0 qs[/QUOTE] Landing q's in lane is much harder than you think, it has a much longer CD than autoattacks/w and people will just stand behind their minions and farm There are moments when you can land them but autoattacking/w will always do more damage, even if you're landing 100% of your q's every single time they come off of cooldown
[QUOTE=Speedstream;35912975]sigh why can't my friends be PC gamers D:[/QUOTE] You pick up random faggots from pubgames, who you enjoy playing with. I have like 2 guys I know IRL who play LoL, yet I don't play with them at all cause I already have a "team" which I have gathered up over the course of time.
