Some people pretend that Elo-Hell is a place you can't escape, because you always play with bad people. It's very hard and frustrating to get out of because of continuous feeders, AFKers and leavers. I say it does not exist, because there is Elo-Boosting. If those people can climb the ladder, you can do it too! You just need to improve and the fact, that ...

Origin of the word "Elo Hell": In Season 1, there weren't LP (League Points) like today. You were measured by a value called elo, which was borrowed from chess. The starting value was 1200, if you won a game, you gained elo, if you lost, you lost elo. Obviously, bad players gathered around 800 Elo and below (which was compareable to Bronze today). Since ...

The remedy is simple: Be quiet. It's the first impression. I've seen a pregame-chat in low elo (Silver II) when I was smurfing 2 days ago which were like that (not the real name btw): bashslayer98: hey guys let me mid bashslayer98: im good at mid bashslayer98: its promo bashslayer98: SYNDRA PLZZZZZZZZZZ bashslayer98: I WANT MID And holy moly - this is ...

Can everyone join it? Any summoner that is level 20 (Formerly 30) who isn't currently banned can participate in reviewing Tribunal cases. A summoner can review up to 20 cases a day. Summoners receive a Justice Rating based on how often their votes coincide with the majority vote on cases. On the contrary, if a player repeatedly votes against the ...

Warning, Wall-O-Text, TL;DR below A slightly different point of view on "ELO Hell" - I do think it exists, and it's personalized for everyone :) I am however a Dota player, so bear with me on the terms (most should be easily clarified in Google). My view is that it's (apart from ragers who blame their team for every loss, period) because different rating ...

Those skins are just for that one game. The purchaser also gets 200 IP and everyone else on his team gets 100 bonus IP whether you win or lose! It's just a cool, cheap way for everyone on your team to play with a skin they don't own, for a champion they may not play often.

You can have multiple stuns, slows, snares, etc all affecting you at the same time. They all apply their full effect for their full duration. That's it, it's that simple. So a stun does not replace a snare - you are both stunned and snared but since stun stops you doing anything including moving the snare is useless in this case. For example lets say you ...

There's really nothing you can do except for winning to improve your MMR. Also keep in mind that these 3rd party websites are sometimes inaccurate (although the fact that you gain +9LP shows that your MMR is indeed too low). If you continue playing with a healthy winrate (50% or more) your MMR will go back to normal. +9 LP usually means that you are ...

Yes, that is correct. Champion Mastery takes into account the position you've played and compares your Score (Overal Parameters, not just K/D/A, however details are unknown) with the score of other players playing the same champion in the same role. It is incorrect however assuming that when a silver player scores S+ does that mean that he performed ...

ELO-hell is supposed to be a ranking below which your actions have no effect on the outcome. No matter what you do you can never get out of that ranking. Wins and losses will be mostly based on luck rather than your skill. Is this true? Theoretically no and it can be proven with math. (Note: there are some oversimplified concepts and examples below, ...

When should you update to a Greater Vision Totem? Never! The Item right now is pretty lackluster compared to the Greater Stealth Totem and the Oracle's Lens. The trinket provides you with 1 Pink Ward every 120 seconds which is bound to a certain location. The other trinkets are a lot better in terms of utility. The Greater Stealth Totem is basically a ...

No It does not (at least for the most part). Any effect that is active during Zhonya's will persist for the time the Oathsworn is invulnerable. This includes spells such as Wukong's ultimate and Fiddle ultimate but even effects like Rammus' Powerball will remain Active. This is also one of the reasons why Kennen support is so popluar combined with Kalista ...

so stun > snare > slow Actually this is not correct. They can all be active on a champion at the same time. Will it keep the 3.5 sec? Or just reset the timer to apply the 1.5 s? Both stuns will last their normal duration irrelevant of each other. That means that Ashe R will last 3.5 and at the same time the target will have the 1.5 sec stun on ...

Yes it is possible to get demoted Demotion happens when your current League Points reach 0 and you lose enough games to get demoted. When you are demoted you go to one division below your current and get 75 LP in that division e.g. if you are in Gold II and get demoted you will fall to Gold III and have 75LP. There is also a demotion immunity grace period ...

The Radeon HD 5450 is a 5-year-old video card, and was a low-performance budget model even when it was new. Your poor performance is more than likely primarily due to that. If your other PC components are similarly aged, however, replacing just the video card may not bring you as much of an improvement as you may want. Here are League's system requirements, ...

Opponents and allies skill Initially the matchmaking system will try to figure out your normal queue ranking (ranked games ranking is separate), so the first few games might feel as if you are matched with with players with great skill difference. Eventually you will start facing players of your skill level. Occassionally you will be running into some ...

Note Bene: I'm not very good but have played a long long time. Some things to be aware of: Players are more aggressive than bots. They will more willingly exploit strategic errors. Players are more aggressive than bots. Tower dives that worked before will no longer work because you will be punished. Don't do that. Support is crucial and plays ...

Really all you need to do is just start, remember the league system will match you up with people of similar skill level, some will just be naturally better than you, some won't, playing against bots too much will cause you to develop bad habits, also remember it's just a game and the lower level community is not as competitive. The league community has ...

Most notable ADCs that synergise well, especially after the rework, are Lucian, Miss Fortune, Ashe (post-rework on Q) and Kalista. The reason why ADCs ever buy Black Cleaver over LW is either because they are able to stack it consistently, or they have a great use for the Phage passive. In this retrospect, those 4 ADCs mentioned above would have more use ...

Riot have said that the tribunal was not really scaling up to handle the number of players in LoL properly and so they suspended it. They have also said that they aim to release a new tribunal system sometime in 2015 but in the meantime have been working on a lot of other measures (such as ranked restrictions) to help. Until the new system is ready we ...

CC does not queue. In the case you described, both effects continue and the character is stunned until both are complete e.g. if a 1s stun is applied 1s into the 3.5s stun, the overall stun will be 3.5s as the original stun will continue through. Same applies to other effects as they are different modifiers, this applies in the same manner, the slows do not ...

The exact method of calculating the grade etc is unknown, however according to the Champion Mastery FAQ it compares your performance to the average of the other players. During the calculation your position is also taken into account. If you play Champions with multiple viable positions (such as Annie/Morgana), the system will automatically detect whether ...

The answer is Yes You can flash a blitz hook easily. You just have to time it correctly. You can even dodge an Ezreals Ultimate by flashing (even towards him). Many players do this. They are in a tight skirmish and they see an opportunity to be agressive or re-engage and flash the skillshot to do so and finish off an opponent. It's all about timing and ...

In League of Legends there are 3 major type of spells. Targeted, Self-Cast and Skillshots. Targeted abilities are locked on the target. If the target moves or flashes away, the ability will still hit the target (Like Annie's Q or Ranged Basic Attacks) Self Cast or Stance abilities only work on yourself, you cannot target them on a teammate (but it can ...

If that doesnt work you can also do this Open this with Notepad: C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\Config\input.ini ...

So when looking through the buffs, I came to the conclusion that in a setup where there is no champions involved (except for one that has baron buff, so minions actually have the bonus), just minions, the following would apply (I will get onto champions later): which minion would make destruction of towers faster Except for caster minions, baron buff ...

The advantages of smite/teleport is that you have the ability to farm extra jungle creeps. (Golems for purple side, Frog for blue side). You also have the ability to roam around the map (One of the most important things about teleport is teleporting for dragon fights/bottom lane for kills and to set up dragon fights). Note that it is situational as normally ...
