Was he Gold 5? I love when people try to demean people who are 1 division below themselves, like Gold 5s to Silver 1s as if there is a massive difference.

Yeah, it's hilarious when that happens. I've seen my fair share of it when I was in D5.

Man, my games feel like they're just forced to have shitty decisions in them.

Like, who TF picks a close ranged ADC into Vayne? She wanted to play Vayne before they took her ... you would think she/ he would know who is good and bad vs her. Lulu support with Kalista also seems like a strange choice. How does a Rek not know how to abuse the fact that an Immobile midlane mage only has tele/ ignite and no mobile summoners?

Feels like I'm in the twilight zone ... guess I just need to go back into my "IDGAF" mode, mute everyone and just chill cause these games are just too damn annoying when you can see the bad choices going on as they happen.

Also, wtf is it with people who play manaless champs? They seem to be completely blind to the fact that you're OOM and get pissy when you don't chase someone into the JG. Like, you do know I'm not a ADC ... my AAs do nothing and I'm outta mana -_-

Its a good system costy that simply has a...whats that saying...baby bumps. Yes its going through some baby bumps. If Overwatch implements it from day 1 the reception to it will probably be better.

For League, it was replacing a 6 year old system. And knowing gamers, the amount of negativity has been massive despite being a superior system tbh. I like always being top except when Im not and I go Thresh and everything goes badle because I suck playing Thresh at the diamond level ohgodbringbacksoloqueuesoIcanknowalltherolesagain

I am surprised that the apparent reason for his benching is that he has no motivation. I thought he was supposed to be one of the most motivated pros, but he was just impatient (and toxic?) with teams.

He might've been highly motivated earlier, but not nowadays. He did make announcements that even despite him not having to join the army he would probably not play this split, but he did join Origen anyway.

I called this after last weeks results. It would be better for his sake to start the split shaky and improve as a team rather than sticking with previous trends. Honeymoon phase into losing playoffs or end of split issues were what got him before. I still see issues with his champion pool as well.

Anyway, nobody will take him after this.

Just had a game where the ADC Trist took ... Heal/ TP. Went 3/10 and bitched the whole game. A top Irelia who clearly only picked her cause "she's OP!". So yeah ... no DMG on our team (other than the Vi who was just bitchy and forced random fights)

No good luck for me today :v

I should.

Of course this game bot lane fed and it's not going well... (I can't complain too much. Previous game I fed hard top).

Make matters worse, enemy team is a 3-man (maybe a 4-man?) and all Gold (5, two 4, and a 3) + an unranked. My team is one Gold 4, and all Silver (including a S5) and an unranked. So Dynamic Queue doing it's thang.

Edit: Enemy team 31 kills, 4 towers, 2 Ocean Drakes, mine 12 kills, 2 towers.. so far

Edit 2: Things got worse. We have no inhibs, neither Maokai or Volibear have built any MR.
... And finally lost.

From 81LP down to 8LP

So, forgiven posted about why he left on facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/forg1ven247...92711204186909

Excerpt:

...
I went to origen with the mindset to try to qualify for worlds instead of taking the easy way out and skipping entire summer split (which ultimately happened but it was worth trying). However we lost about 90% of scrims in last 2 weeks and especially after i saw the Hjarnan news (not playing due to motivation issues) i came into realization that i couldn't keep up with competitive league of legends at least at this point including the previously depressing playoff defeats from 2016 spring playoff run.

After numerous talks we had i thought something needed to be changed and so i took the decision to take an indefinite break from League, since i was playing more Overwatch than the game i was being payed to play (combination of not having fun anymore to play the game for at least one and a half year and being introduced to another), and even if i was at a good/golden mediocrity level, i never wanted to keep anyone behind and so for the change to happen so early even if it wont help Origen (probably) in the short run its better that it happened now than later or after the season. I didn't left Origen on bad terms nor i major clashed with someone from the team. They will have more chances of qualifying for Worlds with a younger player that is hungry to play and do stuff than someone who hasn't mentally recovered from previous spring's losses and lacks motivation.

i think nothing can be solved with lucian and ezreal in their current states, so i think it's a good approach to like do a few light buffs while they analyze how the landscape shapes up after lucy gets toned down

btw the 6.11 patch rundown podcast thing is very in depth and really really great, doesn't go too deep into adcs cos honestly there wasn't much in 6.11 about adcs but u know, it's a good listen

They just reverted the Lucian nerfs though lol

The whole problem with crit ADCs right now is that their mid game power spike is too delayed so they have a very bad time against solo laners. All Lucian/Ez do is exacerbate this issue by deleting them from the game early on.

if i were riot i would like to see the shape of competitive in 6.11 before making any big changes to other adcs and itemization i guess

like i can't tell if adcs in general are bad or lucy is just too broken

it's kinda like junglers with nidalee i guess
