The Anti-Rage Guide – How to Not Rage in LOL
If you play League of Legends, then you have probably raged once or twice in your time pwning. This guide is to help with people handle their anger and realize that it is just a game, and some people are just retards, and there is no changing that, at least for that game. The point of the game is to just enjoy playing a great game, you can blame the LOL community, but in reality, the entire internet, Xbox live and play station network all have the same players. Make the best of every situation and game.
Here are some common signs of raging –
1. Mashing of the shift or use of the caps lock key
2. Spamming chat with insults or general hate
3. Spamming the ping key while in game
4. Grunting loudly and redness of face
5. Intentional feeding or desire to AFK
6. Temptation/Act of setting your computer on fire.
7. Throwing mouse, keyboard, or hulk smashing either one.
After you have shown signs of RAGE please take a moment to ask yourself. “Am I raging?” “Am I drinking Hateraid right now by the gallon?” “Are my hands clenched so tight my nails are causing me to bleed?” And other such questions of this sort. If any of these questions turn up yes then you have confirmed you are raging (And might need to see a doctor, cuts can get infected you know).
Analyzing the rage
How am I raging? What am I raging at? Why type of rage is this?
These are all important questions to ask when you have confirmed the rage. For without knowing what type of rage it is you won’t be able to take further steps to correct your rage!
Common types of rage include
1. Nerd Rage- “They questioned my build! I know better than them! I’ll show them how pro my build is by FEEDING!” *Rage rage rage rage*
2. Gank Rage- “Oh my god man there is nothing I can do I get ganked over and over no matter where I go.. best solution to this is to FEED”
3. MIA Rage- “You didn’t Call MIA why didn’t you call MIA Why can’t I take 1 second to look at the mini map every once and a while to realize that their lane is missing. I guess I’ll just face check every bush now.. and FEED!”
4. Ranked Rage “All you guys SUCK you’re ruining my ELO my precious ELO, obviously my ELO is more important than life it’s self.. so to prove how important ELO is I’m going to afk… then FEED!”
5. Rage Rauuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu-…. then FEED!”
6. Eldritch Horror Rage- AHDOSFJhfasdokseioajwesyy!@$*&*asdjfx,mcnv… then FEED!
If you have any of these rages proceed to the next step immediately. ((Or if it’s eldritch horror rage.. proceed to summon forth your dark god to lay waste your enemies))
Curing the rage
By far the most important step in this entire guide, or any guide ever in fact.
1. Take a deep breath then let it out.
2. Think of something funny or something that will make you smile.
3. Realize this is just a game and you’re here for fun.
4. Laugh out loud.
5. Stand up and do interpretive dance for 10-30 seconds (Depending on re spawn time)
6. Take a chill pill
7. Let it all out by screaming at the top of your lungs. (Only recommended if you are alone in the house.. and if your window is closed.)
So please if you are prone to raging, try to follow this guide, save your teammates from hearing you be dumb, annoying, and aggravating. Save a game, cure the rage.
As of you may have already heard, or if it is a later date, League of Legends has decided to toss out the ELO ranking system and go with a more divisional type of ranking / ranked game solution. This new ranked LOL system is very similar to that of Star craft 2’s ranking system. This needed to be done because the ELO system wasn’t a good motivator for most people. It was extremely annoying and didn’t really promote playing ranked as much as it should. This new system will place you into Tiers, with your friends, and has a bottoming out limit so even if you tank 10 games, you ultimately will still be at your highest tier.
So for more detail I will talk about the tiers. Basically there will be low to high tiers like Starcraft 2. Bronze being the lowest(0-1050 elo), Silver (1050-1300 elo), and so on. Once you are into your tier it will be a group of about 250 people in your division, so you would say I’m silver tier and in “Gankplanks Hardy Crew” division. When you view your division you will see your place, from rank 1 to rank 250, you will also see things that signify if someone is doing well, say on a winning streak, and other little signs relating to the person.
The positive side to this type of ranking system with League of Legends is that if you lose a game, the farthest you can fall is to rank 250. You will maintain your tier unless you become inactive for a month or longer. To get promoted, you will have a series of games, and depending on how you do in those games(somewhat like placement matches) will determine if you will be bumped up to the next tier(gold, silver, platinum, ect…).
If you watch any league of legend streams, you will notice that many the pro players are in their games with the same people very often. This will somewhat be the case for everyone now, because it will want to place you with friends and people from your division before it branches out for other players from a different division. Pretty awesome bro!
Well those are just the basics of the system and my ELO numbers for the bronze > silver brackets may be slightly off. Enjoy the new system & let’s hope you get an awesome division name.
Wondering who won the season two LOL Championship for a million dollars?
After being selected as a huge underdog, the Season 2 World Champions of League of Legends are the Taipai Assassins !
They played amazing well the entire tournament, taking down the likes of Moscow 5, Nanjin Sword, and for the Grand Finals – Azubu Frost
There will be Replays of all of their games posted shortly, so check back often, and if not you can probably find them on youtube shortly also!
Congrats to TPA – THEY JUST WON A MILLION DOLLARS!
Currently there have been a couple ups & downs in the world rankings. The most notable would be Team Solo Mid who seems untouchable after multiple back to back LAN event wins. There is still one team that TSM (solo mid) needs to smash, and that is Moscow 5. Moscow 5 has been semi dormant lately, they are still almost unbeatable in their country, but I think a match really needs to happen between M5 and TSM to determine once and for all who the best in the world really is.
Without further waiting, here is the most up to date League of Legends World Rankings
1. Team Solo Mid
2. Moscow 5
3. Counter Logic Gaming – North America
4. Counter Logic Gaming – EU
6. Taipei Assassins
7. Team Dynamic
8. Team Fnatic
9. MiG Blaze
10. World Elite
11. MiG Frost
12. Curse EU
13. Team Solo Mid EVO

First off, you have to be somewhat lucky to get out of elo hell. For example, you can’t have a boots of mobility champion with 12 farm after 25 minuets in your team, that champion, be it wukong, or miss fortune, is gotta be in the enemy team cause people like that are not possible to carry.
I have ended up with some many people that trolled and just fed intentionally but now ive finally made it out of elo hell. I have duo ques a lot but it always seem to go bad when me and my friend were playing, we always get the retards on our team and despite the fact that we win our bot lane all the time, we endup loosing the game.
So what i did was that i started playing top lane, as Lee sin mainly. Lee is probably the best champion around lvl 2-3 and you can get first blood really easy, specially when you have ignite. And since theirs facts that when a teams solo top gets first blood the chance of winning is 88%. Lets say you get an early kill or even first blood, you will rule the lane so hard that you can go down and grab dragons, gank lanes, counter jungle and pretty much do whatever you want while snowballing like crazy.
Dragons is a very easy way to win and always remember to time them so you can stand there ready to pick them up again. (6 min cool down on it, Baron is 7 min). If you counter jungle and take their red for example time that one as well (5 mins).
Ofc you don’t have to play lee sin, its just a good choice IMO. But solo top is defiantly the way to carry your team out of elo hell.
Always remember to talk a lot and to stay positive, tell people what to do and remember to be selfish, try taking all the kills you can get cause you never know if your AD carry for example that would have gotten the kill is a complete idiot that cant even use the gold properly and buys a Tiamat or something like that.
Some games you cant win just cause theirs to many trolls, but if you win your top lane grueling you will be able to help the others in the team 80% of the games to actully win. ‘
Loosing your lane will happened sometimes ofc, after you loose, think to think about what made you loose your lane and change the problem.
If you have some other thought about getting out of elo hell please post them to help the poor people trying to get out.
TSM has a new coach by the name of Jonas B Supper. Jonas has a history of playing many games, including the Final Fantasy series and a previous dedication to StarCraft 2. He will be dealing with team management to take some stress off of Reginald.
Currently TSM is dealing with little problems, and Jonas is here to resolve most of these. Some problems include arguing and bickering within the team, Reginald being too busy with maintaining team and TSM website. They didn’t have a solid schedule, which is very important for a successful gaming organization. Eating habits, currently TSM eats out and eats way too much crappy food. A metaphor that was used was like premium gas in a Ferrari compared to 87 octane, put in what you want to get out.
It looks like the new coach of Team Solo Mid will have his work cut out for him, but I think he can do it. It won’t be easy to manage a bunch of gaming nerds, but someone has to do it!
