I quit too, been so much more productive. League of Legends is the biggest waste of time. Each game is at least 45 mins to an hour. You spend a good chunk of that time in lane by yourself or jungling. Even if you do good, or are doing well if the rest of your team sucks it up. You're basically screwed. I gave up on the game completely. When I fought my way to the top, to 1400 elo. Like I mean literally tried my best to get there. Carried as hard as I could if it was needed. Then literally three days later I dropped to 1250 elo, just like that an all time low, in literally just a handful of games. Constantly getting games with trolls, quitters, afkers, and just generally bad players or the biggest annoyance in the game. Anytime I got a good team (like literally, no joke, every single time), someone on the other team would dodge queue (the newest LoL work around "cheat")

League of Legends is now the most unbalanced game I know of. It also has the worst matchmaking system I've ever seen and it's policy on players leaving games or going afk is ridiculously sub par. It's also the only game I know of where individual skill means absolutely nothing. You can continue to excel and get better at the game. Constantly being able to dominate any position you play. However, if your team is bad or one or two or three other players are bad. You are basically screwed regardless. It's nearly impossible to carry in 1300-1400 elo ranked by yourself. You basically need your whole team to be relatively competent to win. However worst part is, if your team doesn't know what to do in team fights or doesn't know how to build. That can basically also make or break whether or not you're going to win the game.

Now say you have invested almost 45-50 mins into a game. You are completely fed, but the rest of your team isn't and they don't know what to do during team fights to support you to make you useful. You basically just blew 45-50 mins of time for absolutely no reason since you cannot win even though your performance was amazing. League of Legends ranked doesn't really care how good of a player you are. League of Legends ranked is based on luck, on how lucky you are to get a decent team or how lucky you are in finding another player who is good to duo with you (where even then doesn't 100% guarantee the possibility of winning all the time, just improves chances because of one less derp).

Haven't touched LoL in about 2 weeks now because of these factoids. I really don't think I'm going back. What's the point of playing a game when even though you are improving and getting better, it still doesn't make a difference because it doesn't help you win more? madsmiley.png

It's not hard to just leave it installed and stop playing for a while. I stopped for like 3.5 months cuz it's just a game, not like any of us are going pro.

All I hear is QQ. If you feel this way then sell or uninstall all your games, sell your computer, buy a low end computer to just check email and facebook, and get a new hobby. Don't complain about a videogame wasting your time in a game thread. Hypocritical view is hypocritical. You wasted plenty of time typing that, shoulda just gone and been more productive. Whereas I'm at work with nothing to do before I leave in 10 mins, so I'm browsing the interwebz.

Couldnt have put it better myself. League is full of ups and downs and yes there are things that get unblanced like in any game but that doesnt make it any less fun to play atleast for me biggrin.gif

Hell i have had the question of why i play when my match history is all losses.. But you cant lose forever! I just say keep chugging along and find good friends to play with! Thats the other reason i play as much as i do. I rarely solo queue anymore and plus being with friends in Mumble makes gameplay way more fun!

and on a final note..

Video Games are a hobby like any other and time spent on said hobby is never a waste of time as long as you are enjoying what you are doing thumb.gif

Zing!

Anyways, I'm just gonna start playing normal drafts now. This Khazix wanted mid, picked it, all when I called it first.

We lost the game with his score being negative and at the end of the game, told the other team to report me for "trolling"

I don't even...

Anyone here play Zed? I bought him, but it seems he's kinda difficult to play optimally. frown.gif

Keep going out of energy, also is he better suited top or mid?

Doesn't matter where you're going

You need to know how to conserve your energy. If you try to play shen, 9/10 times you'll run out of energy because of his taunts

As you said, Zed is very difficult to use optimally. His energy returning mechanic, hitting an enemy with both his shadow and himself, is very hard, especially in team fights, which leaves him with the problem you encounter; no energy. Personally I think he's better suited as a mid, but due to his high difficulty cap, he's not as useful in his roll as other assassins.
post #13118 of 17789
I play Zed a lot, most of my games, i can fulfill 3 roles, and hes a blast to play, but yes the hardest thing to get used to is the energy return its not like Lee sin with 2 autoattacks after each spell cast. practice practice,

i have a few guides i follow from TSM and i haven't lost my lane (unless going against a panth) im horrible against a pantheon, but i know how to counter build now. my ELo is crap so take this advice as you want. but i feel extremely confident with him either top, mid, or jungle, but imho there are MANY better champions for the mid role, and jungle if you can get them.

2 wards 9 pots mid is the way to go, gotta trust a 1.9k elo player like me.
