Having been at the London social event and found a few fellow people who play whilst seeing no obvious thread here- anyone other LoL players wanting to avoid the flamefest that is solo queue by grouping up? I found a few up for some games- anyone else interested? Add me in game+post names here if so, same name there for me: Codor.

I'm on the EU and NA server as Vextrinity, don't really play on the NA server much it's mostly to have a chance to play with NA Rioters and other fancy people, I think I'm decent at the game xp

Sorry to jump in the middle of your organizing lads, but I've never played LoL and I'm a bit put of by this "flame war" stuff I hear about. Is it that obnoxious to jump in and play with strangers?

The first 5 to 10 levels are horrible. Then it starts becoming fun, because you usually get to team up with mostly reasonable people. At least on the European servers.

I now remember why people have such a bad experience with the community. I've watched a friend play a couple of very low level matches and it is the worst thing. Ragequitting and shit-talking players every game without any skill to at least back it up.

That must have slipped my mind since I started playing when the game came out, but then dropped it for at least a year or so. Maybe it was different back then. Past level 15 you still get the occasional dunderhead, but at least they don't blame you all the time when they run into a tower at the start of the game.

Play with people you know is honestly my #1 tip if at all possible, sad but true :). I started with people who were unemployed but got jobs (the bastards!) and therefore don't play as much anymore, and played with them to 30 which is one of the reasons I love the game- so many good, fun games in the way up... Otherwise- find a champ you like and stick with it while you learn mechanics. And google champion guides when you are starting- some very good ones which can teach you how to be competent at least, and much more early on.

lasikbear
02-08-2011, 09:47 PM
@Pres Weasel, There is at least a nice tutorial (think its gotten better since I last played it) and if you just want to learn things there's a Co-op vs AI mode where people tend to be nice (well, quiet at least). That should also help you avoid the pain of some of the lower levels, after level 5 things already should get better as you can avoid high level players making accounts for referrals (get a new champion with 10 referrals).

Malawi Frontier Guard
02-08-2011, 11:03 PM
The tutorial match which comes up after the basic tutorial gives you a bit less than 500 IP, enough to buy a cheap champion and runes to fill out your available slots. You don't have to buy a champion though. I recommend only buying those you already played when they were on rotation and actually liked.

Play all of the champions in a given rotation at least once to familiarize yourself with their abilities and play, it will help you make better decisions during the match. Note in particular which champions have crowd control abilities as they can put you in a very nasty position very quickly.

For runes, I wouldn't bother with tier 2 and just stick to the cheap tier 1 until you reach level 20, when you can start buying tier 3 runes. You will have more IP to spend on the more expensive champions in the long run. Runes are not a big deal in the early levels, just make sure you fill them up.
Here is a guide to help you make decisions once you get to tier 3. (http://runeterra.com/forums/index.php?topic=1137)


Co-op vs AI mode
Do not play on intermediate difficulty early on though. The AI gets more gold apparently and it is possible to lose easily if you're not careful. Beginner, however, is very very easy.

As for actual play:

The default lane distribution is 2-1-2. Two players top, one in the middle, two at the bottom. In early normal games you will see several people going one lane and leaving one unattended, things like that. Try to nudge them in the right direction a bit. Stick to your tower before minions spawn. At most, go into the closer grass if you're at top or bottom lane, but only if you can get there immediately. Lower level players have this unending desire to gank you from the grass closer to you tower at level one, so watch our for that.

Later on you will see junglers, which means someone who instead of farming in lanes kills creeps in the areas in between, called the jungle. This usually means your distribution will be 1-1-2, leaving more creep kills for the top lane unless the enemy team does not have a jungler of their own, in which case top lane will be playing more conservatively.
Look for smite on the loading screen to spot junglers, and be wary when they come out of the long grass ready to kill you. They will have picked up buffs from stronger creeps in the jungle, of which there are two on either team's side, and be quite a threat if you're not careful. In the long run you will need to guess when to expect a gank by a jungler depending on his route.

Learn to last hit minions. This is an important skill to learn. Experienced players do not autoattack enemy minions in the laning phase, but wait until allied minions reduced their health enough that a single hit from you kills them, giving them a small amount of gold for the kill. You will have to learn how low the enemy health bars can go before you need to move in and start your attack animation. If your lane goes badly and enemies prevent you from getting last hits, try to at least stay in range to get experience and wait for the minions to get pushed back to your tower, where you can farm safely.
This is another reason why you only last hit minions. If you autoattack and use abilities, your minion wave will get pushed to the enemy tower, exposing you to ganks from the river and making it hard for you to last hit properly.

Play conservatively. Do not tower dive, that is running into range of an enemy tower to kill a champion until you are high enough level and know you can get away with it.
Do not face-check bushes, that is walking into the long grass when you don't know where your enemies are unless you are a tank with your team nearby or you're sure you can get away with it.
If you have low health and get away from a fight and an ally is still engaging the enemy, do not run back to get an ability or two off unless you are sure you can get away with it.

There is a pattern here. Knowing what you can get away with is what separates good players from bad ones. Until you learn this, just try to stay back a bit, even when your teammates scream at you.

solomid.net (http://solomid.net/) is a good site if you're looking for guides for particular champions. Make sure the guide you read is both current and approved to be on the safe side.

Finally, don't get discouraged by shit-talking, and have fun with the game.

cosmicolor
02-08-2011, 11:54 PM
I'm gonna back up the suggestion for co-op vs ai, the people I've played with so far in that are generally quiet or are even cool people, there's been minimal shit-talking so far. If you're low level like me I'm up for forming a team and just messing around in PvP.

I don't play that much anymore, but you can add me@Sabrage on the US servers. Might want to throw me an invite on Steam as well, because I'm more likely to be on that than the LoL client.

I've been playing since ~Feb last year, so I guess I can throw a few tips here and there but I wouldn't describe myself as a very patient teacher.

Hi guys, longtime RPS lurker (and sometime RPS commenter - and also used to be a RPS Eve Corp member).
I used to play on NA servers but recently my ping went bad so I've created a new account on EU West. My account there is darkeripper. I'd love to play with other RPS people because the game is so much better with people you know and voice chat and I'd like to avoid the horrors of solo queue.

League of Legends suckt me in around two weeks ago and I immensely enjoy it so far.
Looking for nice people to play with I found this thread and just invited all the people in here, that are playing on EU West.

Right now I'm Level 10 and go by the name of Pimpelmann.

I look forward playing with some of you guys soon :)

So long,

So is LoL less hateful in the company of friends, or will we still end up with 1 random teammate calling us phags?

Malawi Frontier Guard
20-09-2011, 12:22 PM
I'm good with Sona now that I realized I was playing her all wrong, trying to heal my lane partner instead of just playing aggressively. Maxing Q with just one point in the heal and harassing like crazy in lane works extremely well.

@Heliocentric

I don't know. It's often hateful at the start of leveling because most players will be bad, and someone in the game will inevitably level up a smurf and thus know how bad they are, but most likely not have enough skill to just not care about it. Genuinely new players won't rage because they just don't know what's wrong or right. Feeling powerless is what makes people angry in this game!

Sarigs
20-09-2011, 01:20 PM
@Heliocentric Well I'm not gonna lie you do get some jerks once you start getting to the late teens through to the 30s. To be honest though it's never really bothered me. Most random 5 man teams consist of 4-5 ordinary players getting their game on and the occasionally troll :-) There's a great /ignore command if anyone's being abusive. It's definitely not the "norm" although I can guarantee that you will eventual come across one of them :-)

@Malawi Which side of EU did you end up on after the server split? I'll add ya if your a Westy if you dont mind :-)

That it was. A few months back I tried and quit LoL after only 3 games of Summoner's rift. I'm not easily offended, but I just didn't have it in me to play with people who'd rage. Every. Single. Time something went wrong. I came back to give Dominion a whirl and have been having a blast.

Not only does it fix what I consider to be severe design flaws with the original game mode (long games that are decided halfway through, a boring laning phase with lots of emphasis on last-hitting creeps), it's too fast-paced for the proverbially juvenile playerbase to rage at eachother beyond the typical victory/defeat screen trashtalking, which is easily ignored.

sabrage
25-10-2011, 09:18 AM
The only time the game makes me "rage" (which is really a symptom of being forced into a game with other people) is when they fall below what I consider baseline level play. By the time you reach level 30 and play ranked, I think there's a reasonable expectation of what skills you should have by then: placing wards, knowing how to play more than one role, listening when your team signals you to retreat... The real problem, however, is that it's a very attention-intensive game and failing in any one of these areas can be enough to tip the game. Matchmaking is also flawed in that there is no way of factoring in the tenure of a player, but that could be said of probably of most matchmaking systems.

My advice, if you have trouble with the game's noxious playerbase, is to find enough friends to always play on a 5-man team. Which I suppose is the purpose of this thread.

Sarigs
24-11-2011, 09:39 AM
Yos all,

Since the season two has just started, the introduction of the Ranked Team team option plus me getting annoyed with Solo queing I'm looking at see if their are any regular players who arn't part of a team already who want to get together to play? Would be nice to get some consistent players about for some practise and rank games.

Give us a shout if your interest and play most weeks either in the thread or PM me/add me on LoL (Sarigs).

Oh yeah I'm on EU West and UK time if that makes any difference :-)

Tephirax
03-12-2011, 03:29 PM
I'm on EU West as Tephirax; I can't claim to be particularly good, but through sheer persistence I've hit level 25 by playing primarily PvP with a team of friends, or vs AI.

I tend to have zero tolerance for BS; if someone on the other team's trash-talking, great. They clearly haven't got their hands on the controls. If someone on my team's trash-talking my team, that's an instant perma-mute. Constructive criticism's a different matter, but that's unusual in its own right ;)

I'm on most nights UK time at the moment, so if anyone wants a game, hit me up!

Started playing this two weeks ago and its fun. Level 11 or so, but im still terrible and last hitting and often overcommit to fights. Loving dominion mode. You get alot more used to fights. There is more action and death is less of a detterent. Good for getting used to a champion. What do you need to do duo? There was an option for normal duo, but it seems to have disappered, and Ill i see now is Ranked Duo. I have neither the level nor the experiance nor the champions for that. So far I only own Ryze, not sure whos considered good in what roles.
Ingame name: RadiatorFullPig, EU West. I generally play at around Noon, GMT.

There are alot of flamers, but you only notice them because they are vocal. I dont mind calling me a noob, since I very much am one.

Due que is only a thing for ranked, otherwise in normals just queue as a party and you can queue with up to 4 other people.

I like Ryze a lot, one thing you might want to do if you play him a lot is start smart casting with him. Rebind Q,W and E to smart case spells 1,2 and 3. It makes it so if you are mousing over a valid target and hit the key you will cast the spell without having to click. Makes Ryze a lot less click intensive.

Is there an RPS chat channel on EU West or is it just a case of adding you guys as friends? There's a few of us from rllmukforum recently picked this up and it'd be great to have a few more regulars to fill out teams with. I've got a 10 man mumble server to aid the cause too :)

Right, it looks like it just needs someone to just do it, so I've created a channel on EUW, join "The RPS Tea Room" and if I'm on I'll be in it to dispense whatever advice I might be able to and group for games and such. When you join you can click the cog in the top right of the pane and choose to automatically join when you log in, which saves some hassle.
I've also added everyone who's said their summoner name and realm to a google spreadsheet here: http://bit.ly/u8ftvu to make things easier than going through the thread post by post. And I've put a section for people to add voice servers if they have one they're happy for people to use, communication is OP.

Hey all, long time reader, first time poster but I wanted to throw my name in for some LoLing about. I'm level 30, but hit that over the summer and then didn't play even once from August to early December, but I got back into a few weeks ago. The name's "Sly Trojan" and I would love to avoid the solo que nonsense with you guys!

Ritashi on NA, level 30. I set up a chat, same name as the above one ("
The RPS Tea Room") for NA. If I'm on I'm probably good for a game or for advice. I assume that the channel I set up works, haven't had a chance to test it though.

Hi, I've wandered over from rllmukforum and I'd love to have some non-scary people to play this with. People that won't care that I don't know what the heck I'm doing or supposed to be doing (at least for a while). All I've done so far is mess about with the tutorials but I'm itching to actually play the game at last. I've added myself to the Google spreadsheet and will fire off friend requests at the earliest possibility :)

Well the channel's really popular now, so I'm gonna suggest we arrange some matches perhaps? I wanna play ARAM but I don't wanna go through the hassle of randomers coming and going because the lobby doesn't launch 2 seconds after they join. Might also be good for coordinating some team plays.

I've only been playing a bot match of AD Sona every day for the IP reward, so yeah, I guess it's about time for me to take a break from the game altogether.

It's nice to see that there is some interest in an RPS community for the game finally though. Hopefully it will continue growing.

The NA RPSers are proud to announce their new competitive ranked team:

RockPaperSurrender at 20!

In all seriousness, we now have 4 regulars who tend to play north american (eastern/central time) evenings. We are for the most part, civilized people, and we communicate on Teamspeak. We occasionally succeed in winning, mostly by suffocating our enemies in a pile of our corpses.

Teamwork is our forte, and we're always looking for more people to join us! Friend danbrown69420, Southall, JChthonic or Jocc if you're interested in some casual games. We *try* to frequent "The RPS Tea Room" chat room whenever we can, but friending us would probably be the easier way of getting in contact. All roles welcome. Also looking for somebody who mains Volibear so we can have a Horace mascot.

Just to kick the tires, shake the dust off the 'ol thread and give a bit of a update to any on-the-fencers. There's regularly a whole bunch of us online on anygiving evening through till Midnightish or dawn in some cases on the weekends.

There's also been, the last couple of weeks, enough people online at one time for us to run a few 5v5 (All RPS playerS) games, particularly ARAMs (All Random all Mid) and ULTIMATE BRAVERY matches with all ten ten people sharing the one Vent channel, it gets very funny very fast :-)

Finally AP Lee Sin FTW. You know who you are.

If not let me be the first person to sent you a referral link and win the race!

Myself and a Belgian friend play together frequently. He's level 30 and I'm level 23. We're pretty good and have gotten into Dominion quite a lot recently. If you guys fancy playing with us (EU West) then feel free to drop me a PM or message me in-game. My summoner name is 'Scott'. I shit you not; I got in early when it was first released.

Just wanted to post an update as to what the NA group has been up to. At this point we are still at 4 members, and play regularly most nights around 8-9 central time. If you are on the NA, feel free to add one of us (danbrown69420, Southall, JChthonic or Jocc) and/or join the RPS channel (same as the eu one, The RPS Tea Room).

We play for fun overall and while we of course try to win, it is not the end all and we refrain from raging wether on teamspeak or on chat to the other players. Ocassionally, we try to have some fun with our picks/gameplan, such as having Eve support, or doing a few 3v3 ranked matches where we all go random and lock in with whichever champ we get.

In all, we have a fun group of people around, so come join us and our RPS team (Rock, Paper, Surrender at 20)!

Hey, any chance there's still some room on the NA team? I get tired of solo queueing, but I don't have enough friends to make a full team to play with, 'twould be awesome to play some ranked games with RPSers! (I've got champs I know for every role, though my specialty is probably ad carry or ap mid.) Either way I'll look for y'all online, I think I may already have friended a few of y'all.

To be honest I've not spend much time Solo Queing in the last 6 months since we starting joining up. When I have I don't tend to notice the rage/trolls anymore but I'm not sure if that's because I'm desensitised or it's gotten better.

Some of us premiered an all-yordle line-up last night to great success. It was only blind pick, but you have to start somewhere. The sight of Kennen, Ziggs, Amumu, Teemo and Corki in one team was too much for our bemused opposition. I think I could hear the opposition Nasus' brain melting through his ears when 3 of us dived and killed him in around 0.5 of a second.

I started playing HON (used to be glorified DOTA) and LOL at the same time, and always felt that LOL's style was too straightforward to me. It did not have enough of these small nuances, or annoyances if you prefer, that make games become alive. That is why I stopped playing LOL as soon as I got my DOTA 2 key and haven't looked back. :)

The level of polish and attention to detail DOTA 2 has is just... valve like. And for anyone with even remote interest towards e-sports it's a great game to follow!

You don't compete with Valve for production values and community feedback, you just don't.

So I hardly fail any developer for not matching them, especially how it's probably a lot to do with Valve's (dis)organisational structure.

What's your beef with Riot btw? ;-)

The live balance team have no idea what they're doing, just chasing the latest fotm in the competitive scene but even then not understanding why those champions are getting picked, eg nerfing Nautilus' damage instead of his CC, or ignoring the massive problems with Shen's ult for months while he was picked or banned in almost every single competitive game, because why wouldn't a team pick the ultimate split-pusher?
And then there's the constant erosion of power for supports, which is my favourite role, from the incremental nerfs to champions, the itemisation (currently on the PBE gp10 items are nerfed which will likely go live) to Morello this week outright saying they're not making more than two support champions a year because they don't sell, having released Lulu in a state that makes her unpickable competitively because there's always another support champion that does what she does but better.
It really feels like Riot are moving towards Blizzard's hellish model of balance where they pull levers with no idea what's attached at the other end and produce a never ending rollercoaster of buffs and nerfs, and LoL was where I went to escape that. Riot don't even have an intelligent theorycrafting community to keep them in check like Blizzard do. /rant

On DOTA 2, yes the design feels dated and it's really obnoxious to learn all its little quirks like which magic magic immunity doesn't make you immune to(!). But everything is dialled up to 11, so it's heaps of fun at the same time, I recommend giving it some time to acclimatise to the bullshit because there's a really good game further along the learning curve.

At least on the champions I'm familiar with (which is not many) the buffs and nerfs they've been doing seem to make sense (and I'm not just saying that because they buffed two of my most-played champions in the last patch, okay, maybe a little).
Their major balance changes seem to come all at once but only every so often, so it's not quite a constant stream of them.

Of course one has to be able to play it, and not everyone can do that yet.

I don't have the time or the inclination to learn the quirks of Warcraft 3. Regardless, Dota2 doesn't have colourblind mode so Drac can't play it, so I won't be switching.

Sorry if I'm bumping a dead thread, but some friends have just got me into this game and I was looking for more sane EUW players and this seems as good a place as possible to ask. I'm Autopanda on there as well.

Hey dude,

Though the thread is quiet the RPS Lol players are still very much active. Best thing to do if set to auto-join the RPS chat room on start up being "The RPS Tea Room" and speak up, we're on and about most evening in various different numbers :-)

I'm still surprised a PC gaming site this big has like 20 LoL players on the EUW servers. We are a fun bunch to play with and we don't bite (except Sarigs, who probably also has rabies, so be careful of that).

I think we all know this is a lie. If you like grumpy people shouting at each other you'll be in heaven.

We are only miserable at other old-timers because we have known each other long enough that fragile game-based friendship has given way to the mixed blessing of familiarity.

And when we actually win the odd game it's all high-fives!

Hey, I'm looking to get back into LoL after playing it a lot a lot last year (or so). Although by a lot a lot I mean 'a few matches every night, still less than level 20'. I'm also basically only good at support. And playing as yordles in stupid ways.

Finally transferred to EU after being stuck on NA for years, play most evenings with my girlfriend. Mordarke/Mnao respectively.

If you stick to maining support you will be Capt. Popular!

Hit me up for some games at some point and get mumble installed!!!!1

You should also both join in-game chat room 'The RPS Tea Room' and get it to auto-join. It's 99.9% idle, but there are often enough people to spam invites at mindlessly.

Lulu is my secondary support main. Making things big and small and fast and slow and turning them into kittens/rabbits/cupcakes is super-fun!

I play LoL regularly, generally an hour or two 3 or 4 days a week and have been looking for some RPS'ers to team up with for ages. Finding this post is a godsend :)

My in game name is Cranitt and I'll be in the RPS room this evening, I generally play with another friend and we use Skype to co-ordinate (badly!). Feel free to add me or, otherwise, I look forward to seeing you all in the chat room!

p.s anyone up for a game or two this evening?

Jockie

I'd pop into the tea-room and ask, it's usually very quiet in there as we mostly talk on the mumble server. But as far as I'm aware the majority of the LoL players don't read/check the forums very often. I'll be on this evening, though, so feel free to ask me for a game.

Thanks for the games last night all. One question, how come this thread doesn't have a directory like DOTA/Neverwinter etc? If it hadn't of been necro'd I wouldn't have found it (I may of course just suck at using the search functionality!)

Hi Dan,

DotA literally just got its own directory too, I think it needs to be busy enough to warrant one and since theres been a few 11 day no posts on this one I guess they deemed it not necessary yet.

You can but ask though :)

We've never really used the forums to coordinate so there's not been enough activity to justify it. A simple search would find the thread for the game you're looking for.

League of Losing's in-built private chatroom function serves well enough for seeing who's about really.
As well as the fact it runs from a launcher client unlike DotA so most people just have it sitting in the background if they are around.

Hi all.

I'm also interested in having an extra community of like-minded individuals to play LoL with (and am a long-time RPS reader).
Only L11 at the moment (primarily due to just having very little time to play at the mo as a dad), though the other friends I play with are all L30 and play ranked a lot (so I know more about the mechanics and tactics than I 'should', though implementing them is another matter :-)).

I've added the chat room; everyone there just now were very experienced L30s. What's the normal etiquette here if I'd just like a pool of players to invite every now and then? Just msg in the chat room (and then I guess add as friends afterwards if seemed to work OK?)?

Cheers.
