never dodge a ranked game

our team comp was garbage, our jax was clearly trolling, he only started trying once it looked like we could win. he said in champ select that he wouldn't support and instalocked jax. even with an all ad team, we still trashed them, mid and top won really hard, vi had good ganks and we pushed objectives like crazy. got baron at 15 min, and every time it came up after that. the game was still difficult because cait was useless for the most part (she literally got 1shot by annie in the final teamfight). all this to say, it's not worth your time to dodge, all games are winnable you just have to be the better team.

Anyone who actually dodges games likely cannot be convinced. No sense trying.

I spectated one of my friends yesterday, he had a Gold 5 Ashe who said in champ select "I'm trolling and will afk".

And he did.

Should've dodged.

Actually... I'm of the opinion that you guys had the better team composition. :)

I would much rather lose three LP than play for 40 minutes + with a support Heimerdinger.

I would much rather lose three LP than play for 40 minutes + with a mid lane Taric

I would much rather lose three LP than play for 40 minutes + with a jungle Ahri

I would much rather lose three LP than play for 40 minutes + with people who are raging at each other in champ select.

I would much rather lose three LP than play for 40 minutes + with a troll and lose more LP.

I would much rather lose three LP than play for 40 minutes + with someone who wants to "try something fun."

I would much rather lose three LP than play for 40 minutes + with anyone that picks something unorthodox and tells me to "Trust him, it's good" (This is a red flag, he is going to feed REALLY REALLY HARD)

I would much rather lose three LP than play for 40 minutes + with someone who tries to Elophant everyone in the queue and try to tell them what to play, then rages when we don't play what he wants.


So no, I think I'll dodge just about whenever I want. 3 LP is a number I can come back from. "AP Support Ezreal" is not something you can come back from. Especially when after Hextech REvolver he decides his lane partner(not me at the time) is bad and builds AD Carry. I'd rather dodge than play with trash. I want results, not fun for one person.

Why would you not dodge when you're like 80% sure to lose when you lose basically nothing when you dodge?

Just about everything to be honest. I am against all unorthodox picks, to be quite honest. I find, at least, that if you stick to the meta, you will win more games. If you want to have fun, play a normal or a bot match. I come to ranked to win, and someone picking something silly like that is a loss, no question. You can't convince me otherwise because everything I have described I have seen and they have fed HARD. Even if I win my lane hard, the unorthodox pick feeds hard and loses the game for us. I will not be blamed for a loss as 12/3/14 Jayce and you are a 0/10/3 Mid lane Taric. I am sick of losing my ranked games because fools want to have "Fun."
Even if Mid lane Taric has worked for you, it is not a viable pick. You can try over and over to convince me of the merit (armor shred, point click stun, heal, etc) but those are the exact same things that cause him to fill a support role, and is strongest as a tanky aura support. Sure, you can play something unorthodox, but if you're in ranked I assume you want to win, and why would you handicap yourself by choosing something that is
Just

Not

As

Good

As another pick in that situation? A Zed with a Last Whisper and BoRK is much scarier than a Taric with a Sheen and a Chalice of Harmony.
