Hey guys I am trying to understand how to play Graves and Vayne. How do I go about engaging? Tumble/Quickdraw unleash everything? I'm so used to safe farming with Caitlyn that I am so timid when playing ADs that are in your face.

I had a really weird lane tonight when I went Graves. I had like Volibear and some other tanky champion. I started boots because I didn't have a sustain lane support and felt I was doing no damage with buckshot. Was that because I didn't start dorans blade?

the problem is that most people, including my self purchased these skins under the notion that they would never be for sale again which is clearly untrue if riot is about to change their policy
You bought the skins because they were "limited availability" and not because they look cool?

It's more like, he was on the fence then realized he might never get the chance to get them.

And now he feels like he was deceived into doing it now by having the deadline pressure. And now the deadline is all j/k so it feels like he was lied to.

Why is your enjoyment of a skin ruined by somebody elses' ability to use it?

it's not like you met special criteria to get the skin, other than being online and having money while they're available.

I hate generalizing but pony fans make it so easy. i've yet to meet one of you who isn't absurdly entitled.

Skin dittos are amusing at times. Limited skin dittos may be epic. Hell two Kennan M.D.s was enjoyable to watch.

I'm a pony fan, and I frequently cut people off in traffic while stealing candy from hamsters and sodomizing babies.

you guys are giving Fro a hard time for no reason. the skins were advertised as Limited Edition for a reason. there are people out there who want them but cannot have them because they did not purchase them - you can't pretend there aren't. i know some people, in this thread even, who would kill for some of the limited edition Christmas skins like Snow Bunny Nidalee. because there are people out there who want them but cannot have them, people who wanted them and have them appreciate them more. its not about ENJOYMENT (Thiocynanide), its about APPRECIATION.

if you still do not understand this concept, i can explain it to you.

What would you guys think about Scout being changed to affect ward duration?
no thank you. i would hate to have to assume that when someone puts a ward down they have Scout.

I tired it but got confused what it was so I just stopped. I'll just just type 4 games I know I got reported in though.

Game 1 ~ I try to be positive and decline the surrender all the time and say "we still have a chance" from a 4 man pre made and 3 of them wanted to report me for trolling but we ended up winning anyway.

Game 2 ~ I didnt want to surrender because I was getting fed with fizz while teemo left game and Wukong and rammus wanted to report me and ahri for wanting to stay in game.

Game 3~ I went jungle Olaf and had a really bad game so I went like 2/10 and my team raged at me to be reported for feeding on purpose even though I told em I was having a bad game. They all agree to report me, even the enemy team.

Game 4 ~ went fizz again in a 4 man pre made who ignored everything i said and fed the team so I got fed fast and won the game for us and they insisted to report me for ksing them and not helping blitz when he died a lot in lane.


I kept a positive attitude in all my games and I get ban because lots of people wanted to report me for trying my best. I hate 4man premades!

The people who looked at your tribunal must have been... idk, something. I suspect a fair amount of people just instaclick punish when it comes up. Maybe I'm too soft, but if there's no evidence of intentional feeding (troll build, threats of it in chat, etc) I just assume they played badly.

just because some new kid is like oh hey i want nutcracko now doesn't mean the should be able to purchase it after riot has repeatedly stated that they won't re-release limited edition skins

Riot is in business to make money. They will make a crapton of money if they bring all those skins back. That's a good enough reason to do it. Doesn't matter if they were previously only for limited release.

why would they have not sold them to all of those people who were asking for the skins last year willing to pay ~$100 for them?

submit a ticket to support.


Though, keep in mind your counter-raging against these people might've been why they punished, not what you actually reported them for.

I want my friggin silent night sona.


But I understand, if they offer them for open sale again, riot should give the previous owners the right to get the RP they spent on them back without using one of the freely given refunds.

Denying people skins is silly, but it's definitely fair to say that the belief that you'll never get another chance to get it would pressure you into a decision you would not normally make.

Large majority of people instaclick Punish ij Tribunal, fastest way to get IP since most people up there are not innocent by any means.

@ johnny - I guess I'm still like 100 ELO away from having these fun/challenging top lanes, unless I get stuck in a bad matchup it's all been boring so far :(

Like I said earlier, the only reason I would be salty about that IS if when the skins come back, they come back cheaper.

I understand the concept. It's the same concept as having a toy somebody else doesn't have. It's like being a 5-year old.

I'm a fan of having limited edition stuff that no one else can have. I flaunted my deaths demise title all the time when I used to play WoW.

edit - wow, regi dropped to 2095, lmao

I don't mind having limited edition stuff for an accomplishment, it's a really cool way to show off your e-peen.

Limited edition stuff that you have to lay out money for is meaningless, it doesn't even give bragging rights. Only reason I care about this is that silent night is sona's only good skin.
