comment Why do ADCs always go for damage over armor?
@SimonM The only reason they're called marksmen sometimes is because Riot made up that word in an attempt to have a more flavorful term for the role than "ADC". Teams can win without a useful ADC, as the mid-laner or even top/jungle can carry games sometimes, but this is still the general mindset of an ADC who wants to be useful to his team.

comment How do you avoid Cammy's cross-screen jumping grab?
@GEnGEr She always did it at full screen. Maybe that's why jumping away didn't work?

comment How can I mine redstone ore?
@Flaunting I'm not sure what you mean, but what happened is you approved an edit that completely changed the content of the answer. I am letting you know for future reference, when you are reviewing the queue, that you should be rejecting those edits, not approving them or editing them to improve them.

comment How can I mine redstone ore?
@Flaunting Please refrain from making edits to answers that completely change the answer. Even if you are changing an incorrect answer to a correct one, that is not something that should have been approved. Instead, you should add a new answer with the correct information and a comment/downvote on the outdated answer.

comment Pokemon Stats Breakdown
@LukeP You are confusing "nature" (which statically affects stats like Attack and Speed, etc.) and type effectiveness, which is where you see things like "super effective" or "not very effective". I suggest reading up on damage modification for a full description of how this works.

What do those warning signs look like? I've never noticed them.

comment Do pro players manage to consistently maintain high CS in early game?
Professional players on smurf accounts can deal with constant harassment by freezing the lane under their own tower for safe farming, and pushing super hard all at once before backing to heal so they don't miss a wave.

@bolov You asked about professional players. Professional players don't play the same way that you do at Silver level.

comment Is it worth spending the coin on turn 1 to summon a Novice Engineer
Changing close vote to dupe since that makes more sense and redirects people to useful information.

comment Is it worth spending the coin on turn 1 to summon a Novice Engineer
@toryan The backup can be experience-based or math-based; it doesn't have to use an external resource. It's best to just ask the question you want answered and let the answerer determine the best resources to use to answer it.

I disagree that this is too opinion based. A good answer should go into when this is a good or a bad idea. Specific strategic questions are the epitome of Good Subjective.

comment Why is camping considered bad gameplay?
@user16973 You have to camp the right spots. I'm not sure what game you're playing, but if you're using a sniper purely for defensive camping, rather than trying to pressure the enemy team, you're not really helping your team much in general.

comment No land to start on Agrarian Skies?
Although a video can be useful, an answer with no information except a video is liable to becomes useless in time. Please take a few minutes to paraphrase the main points of the video within the answer for longevity.

comment LAN Minecraft requires all players to have an account?
@slow_excellence I'm glad to explain my actions. Your first answer condoned piracy, which is patently disallowed. Your second answer alluded to the first answer, which is no better to be honest. While I was editing your answer, fixing things up, I removed irrelevant extra text as well (which I see you've added back; remember that this is a Q&A site and content is important, but greetings and opinions are not). Your comment was flagged as offensive (not by me), and comments are cheap so we tend to err on the side of deletion.

OP and @Memor-X, please both refrain from constantly reverting each other's edits. OP, the edit is an improvement, so it should stay.

He asked multiple different questions in his question. Which one does your "yes" refer to? Can you provide more details?
