No, tie-breakers do not earn points in the fantasy league according to a Rioter, who I asked in a private chat.

It depends on the skill level of your opponents, calculated through MMR. If your opponents are not great (>45% Win rate) and you are a good player (<60% Win rate), your win will mean less because it wasn't as big of a deal. If you were to lose that game, it would count for more against you because statistically, that loss was not as likely to occur.

Other than hitbox-related points, I guess theres always the psychological factor. Instinctually, one would be more scared of a 6-stack Cho than a wild Kennen. This is simply because of size. Of course, this instinct is not a huge advantage because size does not necessarily translate to strength in this game. But anything counts, I guess.

Exhaust Exhausts target enemy champion, reducing their Movement Speed and Attack Speed by 30%, their Armor and Magic Resist by 10, and their damage dealt by 40% for 2.5 seconds. Ignite Ignites an enemy champion, dealing 50 + (20 × level) true damage over 5 seconds, applying Grievous Wounds icon grievous wounds and revealing them for the duration. The ...

In my opinion, I would not take exhaust on Yasuo. The advantages of taking exhaust are that if you are up against an assassin then you are able to negate a portion of their damage. It also slows so it can help with chasing, running, peeling, or help with aiming your tornado. The season 5 meta as it stands right now is moving away from the bursty assassins to ...

Since pretty much everything has been said, remember that with some champs red buff can overall GIVE you health (shaco, warwick) because of smite bonus, so doing it while already damaged with said champs can help. Also, the crab gives health and lots of XP so it's good too.

I main Riven. Most of her power is in the utility, CC, and mobility of her kit. Like most AD casters, she builds AD/Armor Pen and some tank. Because of the strength and potential in her kit, she excels in trades. She can also spam these abilities because of her lack of a restrictive resource. Her AoE is amazing for waveclear and her dueling with engage and ...

im pretty sure that size can increase the size of some of your abilities like braums shield etc...

You really have 2 options for laning against Riven and not getting torn apart. Keep in mind, that being slightly behind her in lane is actually beating her. She needs kills to get levels and snowball. 1) Play a tank who can deal with her damage and thrive. Bring TP. I run a lot of Malphite into her. As Malphite, you will get behind, but that's ok since ...

Riven's damage depends on her hitting you with her q and her auto attacks in quick succession, so don't let her do it. Ranged champions can do this easily since they can poke from a safe range, but any melee champion with an escape or stun can break up her combo by staying out of range after she's used abilities and before she can auto attack. Keep track ...

You can do it mid to late game. Earliest at 20 min. Typically to solo him you basically need near full build. However there are numerous cheese tactics with different champions that work. Ex: Heimerdinger (video) Clearly some champions are better suited for this then others. It is way easier to duo Baron and can be done with about any tank/sustain + dps ...

You win games by forcing enemies into paths they have only bad decisions and no counter or way to come back. Ganking at right time at right place is one way to archive that. Typical low skilled jungle start looks like: Frog(Smite with lane help) + Blue + Wolves Frog(Smite with lane help) + Blue + Recall Frog(Smite with lane help) + Blue + River ...

That would be 5.5 seconds for every champion and 13.5 seconds for Poppy. Since you won't allow a small time window it works as follows: For every champion: Kayle ultimate - 3 seconds Stasis (Bard R, Lissandra R, Zhonya's Hourglass) - 2.5 Seconds Now of course you'd have to time this absolutely perfectly and as you've mentioned slightly before kayle ...

Ok, so your specific question has for the most part been answered. (It's doable but generally inadvisable). I'd just like to add that rather than soloing/duoing baron, having your whole team sneak baron can be extremely effective in lower elos – specifically when your team is losing and the opposing team has control of dragon. Generally if you have the ...

It depends on what you are playing : soloQueue or 5v5 ranked team. In Solo Queue : try to communicate with your team when youwant to collect chimes, you can collect with them your chimes safely and even you can get some kills and then snowball. If your team don't respond then stay near your adc, it will be better. In 5v5 ranked team : using a communication ...

I know this won't work with Pantheon/Amumu but other alternative routes might be helpful. I do this on people like Rammus/Zac. Essentially champions without a heavy need for mana. I start Gromp. From here I will skip blue and do wolves. After this you can do red and still have more health than normal after smiting it. This lets you do a level 3 gank ...

When should you gank? You should Gank whenever you can create pressure without harming you nor your laners. If your laners are pushed it's harder to gank, but still doable, however you have to mind where the enemy jungler is to prevent him taking Dragon or counter ganking you. Ganking as Amumu on Top In my opinion, it's the easiest lane to gank before 6 ...

I would have to say it depends on which champions you are using for example full build master yi can solo baron pair him with a very tanky champ like thresh or bard (picked these two because of their kits) and you can potentially sneak it. When you can do it is situational. How far ahead if you team how far ahead is the enemy team where is the enemy team ...

Chimes are quite helpful for Bard. The first 5 are fairly important as they give his meeps a slow (albeit a minor one early on) as well as hitting 25 which gives them AoE damage in a cone. Generally, you should only venture out if the chimes are fairly close or after you have killed an opposing laner. Wards are extremely important to ensure your safety as ...

In 99% of the cases, doing Baron while the enemy team is still up is a bad Idea for soloqueue. Especially during earlier stages of the game, Nashor just deals way too much damage and 2 enemy teammembers can potentially kill 5 People who are busy fighting for the buff. So in general you should absolutely refrain from doing baron early, especially if you ...

This is all based off your ELO, which is a hidden score Riot does not show you which it uses for matchmaking. At the start of a new season your ELO gets reset back towards 1200: ELO = (ELO-1200)/2+1200. You then play 10 matches, with those matches having a larger effect on your ELO than a normal match. At the end of the matches it places you into a ...

From my knowledge of League of Legends from friends, if it is your first time calibrating into ranked, then you will only be calibrated at about gold 3 (?). Assuming you've played solo and won all of your 10 calibration games for ranked. This changes when lets say you play with a friend who is platinum. Lets say, for this example, you play with him until ...

No Yasuo's windwall will not block Thresh's auto attacks. Although they are ranged attacks, they are not projectiles. A Yasuo windwall will also not be able to block Vel'Koz's auto attacks since those are breams of energy (not projectiles). Fun fact: Although the windwall cannot block the auto attacks of Thresh, it will be able to block the Runaan's ...

Recording or streaming League of Legends is somewhat tricky. The game uses 2 different windows: one for the client and one for the game. The easiest way to stream/record League of Legends is by running the game in (borderless) windowed mode. Now depending on whether you want to just record the game or the game and the client you might want to use the OBS ...

Which kind of source are you using to record? This sounds like you're trying to use the window recorder while the game is running in fullscreen mode. Have you tried using the Game Recording instead? As an alternative, switch LoL to windowed/borderless fullscreen.

No this is not possible. You can only rebind within 3minutes into the game http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/patch/patch-421-notes#patch-kalista

Firstly, you can only play with players a whole Tier above or below you(If you're Silver V you can play from Gold I to Bronze V). Secondly, matchmaking creates an average of you and your premade friend elo, and then give it a boost (because you're premade), thus it means that if you're Silver V and your friend is Gold V, you would be going to play against a ...

TL;DR - if your MMR is high for your league ranking then you gain more LP. If your MMR is low you gain less. It tries to adjust your league ranking towards your MMR by weighting the LP gain/loss from matches LP is a secondary rating system along with MMR/Elo. League of Legends still uses the most stable system for match making called Elo Rating System. ...

From a Reddit post explaining the behavior between Luden's Echo and Karthus Ult: Luden's Echo cannot bounce more than once. Luden's Echo prioritises the first pick (press tab it's the first champion on red team) Luden's Echo hits invisible targets Luden's Echo when hitting minions also hits invisible targets. Luden's Echo does not proc on Karthus E or W. ...

It's pretty common for the launcher to freeze on the mac client. Is that what you're using? If so, you can always either re-download/restart or you can repair your client by: Opening the LoL client At the top right hand part of the screen there will be an icon that looks like a 'gear'. Click it. It will open up a window with an option to repair. Click ...

Tilting is the main factor in loss streaks in League of Legends. When I was going through Silver and Bronze I experienced this regularly. Becoming mad at the game and at your team has great negative effects on your gameplay, causing you to blame others for your own mistakes and also avoid the foundations of tactics to win, like warding, missing calls, and ...

You are probably on tilt. You lose games because you are still angry from the fact that you lost the last game. just take a 10-15minute break between each game not matter what the result was. this helped me a lot. It seems like you play against much better players because they win... and you lose. Does the LoL matchmaking system take the previous games ...

This answer is not about the MMR matchmaking but more about why you have winning or losing streaks. In my experience, you will have winning streaks and losing streaks. The only thing is that when we win, we tend to tell ourselves that it's because we are good. When we lose, we subconsciously try to blame others or to minimize our part in it (you can always ...

Riot Games didn't give the algorithm of their matchmaking system but they told their matchmaking system is based on elo/rating/mmr. If the waiting queue is long the teams will still be almost same rating but the players can change. In example: Team A: 4 diamond 1 bronze Team B: 5 plat This case occurs usually in smaller servers but it may happen to you. ...

Depending on your ISP, and region, your packets might take a sub-optimal path. One way to work around is to use a Gaming VPN, which is basically a VPN but slightly optimized for games. While I haven't personally used it, wtfast.com seems reasonably good at first glance.

Now, you can choose more characters then those. But only a few more, such as Wukong, Garen, Caitlyn, Ziliean, and others. Not all of them are availiable though. As the previous answer said, Riot encourages you to play with others. But, yay! More characters!

In addition to Jake's answer, if you actually make the item set and aren't in the place you have the set for, it won't show up. Tear of the Goddess (http://gameinfo.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/game-info/items/) for example has a Crystal Scar and "normal" version. If you just put "normal" and play Crystal scar the Item Set will show but the Tear will not. ...

Anyone that does a grand amount of true damage (quinn and vayne) works very well, because you will most likely be going against a tank and to win a fight you want to just say "forget your armour". They are ranged, have nice harass, and good escape.
