5v5 Ranked Team Issue

  • 5v5 Ranked Team Issue user44322

    I play with 4 of my friend in team ranked. One of my friends only plays one champion. If you look at his solo queue records, he only plays that one champion. (I won't say what champion in case he ever reads this) Basically, he plays top with this champion and builds it like an ADC. So we are down one tank. We can't put him as ADC either because he can't win that lane. He refuses to learn any other champions.

    One of my other friend only plays unorthodox champions like AP Xin Zhao. He refuses to play over powered champions like Vi or Lee Sin cause he doesn't like jumping the band wagon.

    I'm not sure what to do. We have lost countless games because we don't have as any tanks or our jungler just simply does not have the ganking power. On average our team's solo queue rank is gold. The only games we have won are when the other team is all silver players or they made terrible plays.

    I'm just asking what I should do.

  • Talking as a person who himself only plays one or two champions in one position and refuses to learn anything else, I think you're only real choice is to either suck it up and carrying on playing the way you are, or find new team mates.

    You can't force your friends to play a way they don't want to play. If you still want to play with them but don't want to lose rank, then simply only play unranked games with them.

  • I've wondered if my 5v5 Ranked team MMR affects my 5v5 premade normal matchmaking. Since soloqueue MMR influences the matchmaking of soloqueue normal games (i'm currently G1 and i always play vs G2 - P3 in normal and ranked games when i'm soloqueue), would it be possible that the team Ranked mmr also affect your normal games if you are 5 premades? I mean if you are playing with 4 of your friends the enemy team will also have 5 premades. And it would be kinda unfair (although it's almost impossible) if a team that only consists of silver players but has a 5s ranked rating of like plat

  • that gives the best combos for support/ADC, couldn't find it myself. What I'm trying to do with this question is provide a sort of foundation for picking my support champion for an ADC champion or even vice versa what ADC should I go with certain support champions. I ask this because of the key role support plays, as games are won and lost in the hands of a support just as easily as they are with any role in LoL. Support plays such a big role early game for Bot Lane that overlooking the importance will cause you too fail repeatedly. I do my best to pick support champions (I prefer meta

  • I was playing Borderlands and managed to finish most of the game with one of my friends who hosted the game. The only things we didn't do were the DLC arenas and the Crawmerax quest. Our levels were... and then we stopped the game. Now my problem is, whenever I try to play solo continuing my playthrough 1, all the enemies are scaled to this 2nd friend's level I think; basically, any enemy I see is at level 62. Is there any way I could revert this back to what it should be? I tried inviting a friend with a lower level to see if it helps but it didn't :( Edit: playthrough 2 seems to be fine

  • game. I play solo queue in silver. Some games I lose because an immature kid gets upset by whatever and starts trolling. Some games I lose because my teammates don't have a clue how to play in the teamfight phase. Some games I lose because me or my teammates loose the laning phase (which is ok, you can't win every game). Some games I lose because we are being outplayed and outsmarted, which...TL;DR; With all the armor and health and health-regeneration, what's the strategy that I should use to win team fights in the end game? The tanks can go without trouble and kill my ap, adc and any

  • I'm trying to play Civilization V with my brother (who is on my network) and my friend (who is not on my network). I host a private internet game, enable 3 AI players, and invite them to the game. My brother can join without a problem, but when my friend joins it tells him that I disconnected (I still see him in the list but I do not receive his chat messages), even though I can still talk to my brother. It's like there are two different games going on, one with me and my brother, and one with my brother and his friend. If I try to start the game before my friend is disconnected (he

  • with this: ...I do agree mana gives another balancing point to champions. You have to design manaless champions to have other attrition (melee does since it's more risky, health costs, more cooldown...In League of Legends, there are quite a few champions that don't use mana. I am wondering if there are any pages or posts that explain why Riot chooses to create a champion that doesn't use mana... to build mana into Kha' but not Rengar? I'm just wondering if there any posts or releases from Riot that explain this, or maybe even a champion spotlight where they explain

  • My fiancee and I are trying to find a game that we can play together, and neither one of us is a strategy fan. The whole sandboxy aspect of Civ seemed like it might be a nice way to get our feet wet. The one issue is we tend to have conflicting schedules. Is it possible to start a two player game, make a turn, then log out. Then she can log in, make her turn, and log out. Sort of like one would do with games like "Chess with friends"? Or does it require that we both sit down and play a game from beginning to end? Can't seem to find an answer to this. Thanks!

  • Well, I'm new doing ranked and I was surprised when, my team won the 5 games to enter a league and we get Bronze III. A friend told me that they with only 4 victories in the first 4 games they were Silver IV. So I was wondering that what factors influence to get in a League, because it's not only how many wins we do at first 5 games. The personal MMR from every one of the team can be a factor?

  • equals one low-level champion; it only gets worse once I can have 4, 5, or 6 guys in a unit). Champions make fine mages, doubly so since only champions can be mages. But how do I make a non-mage.... The trouble is I can't figure out how to make effective warrior-champions. When I equip a champion with a sword, he's less effective than a unit of three grunts wielding the same sword: to wit, he has about the same attack as just one of those grunts. He may live a bit longer, but he's usually doing pretty terrible damage unless I've gotten lucky and found an excellent weapon. Otherwise, if I buy
