I never even reached Level 30. I stopped at Level 18. It became kind of boring and the community is just terrible.

The sad thing about the hostile environment is this: A lot of newbs start playing the game for the first time, have a bad game and feed, and are subsequently trashed by their teammates. They think, "Oh jeez, that was really harsh, but it's okay! Once I learn how to play the game and get good, I won't have to put up with these insults anymore." Problem is, that's a fallacy. THE ABUSE NEVER ENDS, IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW HIGH OF A LEVEL YOU REACH. Open up a pro gamer's stream, hear him talk, and look at the in game chat as well. These guys are playing at the very top of the ladder, the highest elo players on the whole continent, and they're still calling each other "shitter" "the worst player I've ever seen" etc.

I once saw a screenshot of a Tribunal case. "Reason for reporting: Threatened to murder the person playing Ashe".

Yes, the community is horrible. By far the worst of any game I've played, but this issue is mostly mitigated by playing along your friends, or finding friendly people and adding them. The former is simple, the latter, not so much.

Oh good, this thread got revived! Well, since last I posted, I've gotten a wide variety of champions, though I still like playing ranged. I do have quite a couple of melee champs I'm good at, though.

AP carries: Ahri, Xerath, Karma
AD carries: Ashe, Yi, Kog'Maw
Hybrid carries: Kayle, Akali (Kog's also a possibility here)
Fighters/tanks: Shyvana, Udyr, Cho'Gath
Supports: Nidalee, Karma, Nunu

Probably going for Warwick next, once they drop his IP price. ALL THE LIEF STAELZ FTW!!!

Oh yeah, I used to be a shitty Jungler with Warwick too. It worked about 20% of the time, but it was the most fun.

I'm really interested in Talon, Yorick and Kassadin for some reason. Played a Kassadin earlier today, with Ahri in Mid Lane. Defeated him 2 - 0 by the end of the Laning Phase, about 30 CS above him, roamed and went 5 - 1 compared to his 1 - 3. However... when teamfights started breaking out, he absolutely neutralized me and all of my damage. Post-6 Kassadin IS a monster as he scales into late game, having managed to freeze a snowballed Ahri almost perfectly. We still won, but hell, I was impressed by the Champion and it's general performance. What made it even more hilarious is that they were stacking Health and I didn´t react appropriately (Liandry's Torment), as I went for a Rilay's Crystal Scepter + Abyssal Scepter Build instead. An Olaf on the other team stacked Warmog's Armours pretty hard reaching 6,178 Hp by endgame.

Oh hey so this thread is a thing.

I added everyone who posted their username. Mine's Tiure. I play often with my friends, and it is fun!

I find that being preemptively friendly brings out the best in people. A simple "Excellent job, X!" will make people love you.

Kassadin is a powerful anti mage, but he can be shut down really hard if you send a bruiser mid, since most of their attacks ignore his natural magic resistance. When I used to see an enemy team foolish enough to first pick Kassadin, I begged my team to let me go mid Gangplank so I could shoot him with my musket every chance I got. I used to shut down Kassadin so hard with Gangplank, that the only thing he was able to afford when he went back to base was more health potions! Of course half the time when I asked to face Kassadin mid, someone on my team would say, "NO GTFO, I CALLED ANIVIA MID! I'LL BE FINE!" and then they'd go and get the shit kicked out of them!

For all I know though this advice is wildly out of date, since I last played seriously in season 2. Like I saw the item "Liandry's Torment" mentioned, I don't even know what the hell that is!

This is true, I met some cool guys over the years, but even this is not a sure thing! A long time ago I had a really good game and carried my team to victory, and one of my teammates messaged me afterward and said, "It's hard to find good teammates to improve elo, want to duo queue together?" delighted by this, I accepted and we queued up for a new game. It didn't go as well, and during a teamfight I made some kind of mistake, and my new buddy called me out on it. We ended up losing the game, but before it ended, he asked a guy on our team with the best score if he wanted to duo queue for the next game. He promptly deleted me off his friends list and queued up with the other guy instead. Ouch!

I stopped playing in January and I also do not know this item.

Though to be fair, I really only remember AP items.

My best game so far. Was only my second or third game using Gangplank.

I went to play some more matchmaking following this only to get ganked repeatedly despite having a Soraka support by two on the bot and a jungler and... it was just a depressing mess


So far the champs I use are Riven, Gangplank, Annie, and Soraka, and occasionally experimenting with others.

Damn I almost want to start playing again. I'd be up for it if we formed an unstoppable UPN team.

I would join a team!

You'd have to excuse me being bad at this game but at least you wouldn't have to put up with a randomized teammate.

>Creates "UPN" friend folder
>Already has 2 friend folders

This could get a bit tricky ._.

Thought about trying it.

Then I tried to install it. It didn't install. Then I gave up.

It takes roughly 30 years to download, install, and update. So I don't blame you.

No, no, no. The downloader started, then instantly stopped at 0% and reset itself. I turned off my firewall and tried again and it still didn't work. So yeah. Fuck that.

That happened to me during my initial download. I just let it keep running and it fixed itself.

Just made an account. I don't need time anyways.

Looking through characters, Fiddlesticks, Annie, Golurk Xerath, and Shaco sound fun. Maybe when the game finishes downloading in 2 hours 45 minutes, I can see if any of them are playable. :P
