I think you're misinterpreting what I mean by "luck."
Maya's post above does a good job of explaining.

True... I have lost games where we controlled all 5 caps for 10 minutes...


But the lategame champs kept backdooring and all my team cared about was kills..

So when they had 4/1 they defended and rocked us...

I was a bit mad but hey, the same effect pertains to me everygame.

Its not trolling. You think you deserve to win a match due to kills. the games RULES are that you need 3 capture points to win.

This is no different than being mad about losing a tennis tie because you couldn't win 2 volleys in a row.

I saw gg when we are up 4 nodes to 1 with the enemy nexus at 1 health. I never feel unsafe.

Graaaah that's not at ALL what I'm saying! Ay yi yi ><
The mechanics deciding when kill bonuses are applied are uneven, nonsensical, and frustrating.

If it helps, I added some quotes to the front page to clarify.
Sorry if I haven't made my point clear, I feel like everyone is attacking some straw-man argument that is completely unrelated.

Right he's got like 3 accounts downvoting everyone but him... it's kinda funny...

He might Ragequit forums if Riot doesn't change this "unfair" mechanic.

LOL

Its not that hard to follow. Kills help you get an early game advantage. After a certain point you actually need to control capture points. Stop considering kill-points a factor at all in the outcome of the game.

Then IMO they should just remove the bonus entirely, instead of making teams randomly snowball.
Making up really stupid rules for getting random extra points via kills was a DERP on Riot's part.

TBH I know exactly where your coming from...

But the capture mechanics are also unbalanced so they do BALANCE each other...


The kills mechanics mean you should capture and then kill to defend.
Also Quest bonus' can knock an opponents Nexus down 20 Points for a successful defense.

That's alot more than -2 your mad about.




Ever play Call of Duty ???


Well I'm the noob that runs around and Captures all the Domination spots, while my friends camp, place traps, and defend their spots.


Don't be afraid to tell your team they need to help do something.

It's obvious you are intelligent, but you need to widen your view of things.

I apologize if my words were interpretable as '3cap doesn't damage the nexus'. It does at the moment. I merely meant that rapid flipping of a capture point back and forth didn't continue to hasten the end of the game, but if they had 20 points left you really needed at least 20 seconds of 3cap to win.
