Queue Dodging = A Better Game

I often find it very fulfilling to carry a newb or two to victory, and when I successfully manage this I usually end up with a new friend from either the newbs or the other two decent players that were looking for somebody to play with. So, no que dodging for me.

I have won with heimer and warwick in my team before. Not to say that they are good champs or anything, just that you'll never know the outcome until you try.
Q-dodging is for loser. Hey guys, this team looks bad, we will lose don't even need to try. Let's just give up now and find another game!

Why play a game you already know you lost, that's not creating a challenge. All that does is create OP threads on the forums. Team composition is the single most important factor to winning games, even player skill does not contribute as much as team composition does. So when I see a team made up of 4 tanks, 4 casters, or something ******ed like that, I queue dodge.

Do you talk first? Maybe suggest a better comp?

A friend and I did a little experiment, we both picked horrible champions (heimer/zilean, revive and smite/fortify) and then started saying ridiculous things in chat:

me: They're gonna freak out when I fort my lvl 3 turrets
him: Tank mode zilean engaged.
-
me: I'm afking this game, I don't feel like playing
him: guess I'll just pick random (revive)

etc etc

and in each lobby NO ONE DODGED US

They let the timer go to :00-setting up game before one of us dodged them.

I then add their names to a list of people to dodge in the future, clearly they are so witless and casual they don't even care if 1-2 players on their team are going to feed purposly/afk/caps lock/etc the whole game.

Then again, there are different types of players. Players who have fun just winning, and players who have fun being challenged.


There is a very large difference between challenging oneself to one's ability and challenging oneself to an intentional handicap.

Your list of names should be pretty **** long then, because the majority of players are not good and unaware of their teammates.

Maybe they weren't reading the chat?

I know if I'm trying to decide what champ to get, then summoner spells, then masteries, I don't always have time to read the chat.

Way to continue making assumptions.

Or maybe they just knew you were joking?


Either case, you haven't proved that they were stupid. Just that you were.


In the end, q-dodging breaks the MM math. So you're actually making the situation worse. Riot is doing something about punishing q-dodging, so that should tell you something.
