    I just had this [Awful/Terrible/Disappointing] game in which [top/mid/bot/jungle] lane totally threw by failing to [buy item that is questionable/do action that is questionable/call miss even though in reality they actually did] against a total newb [insert champion here]. It's because of trolls like this that I constantly lose at LoL, and I don't understand why I am still [wood 7/silver 4/gold 3] because I know I'm at least [Gold 1/Plat 1/Challenger tier]. I know I'm awesome because I [have a high KDA/was high rated in season 2/once first blooded Dyrus back in the beta]. Lastly, I am here to ask for advice, but what I'm really here to do is to complain loudly on GD, because my roommate is out buying beer and normally I'd deal with this by playing ARAM with him. In summary, it's not my fault, why won't the game recognize my brilliance? Please sympathize.

    Sincerely,
    Angry late night GD poster who just lost a game

    I actually just did a ton of work and was browsing GD (and noticed this trend), but it's true, we don't typically work at midnight on a saturday night, unless that 'work' is playing LoL.

It's because of great players like this that I constantly win at LoL, and I understand why I am still silver 4 because I know that I can learn from these individuals. I know I can improve because I know there's always room to improve. Lastly, I am here to ask for advice, but what I'm really here to do is to voice my love for LoL on GD, because my roomate is out buying beer. In summary, I hope to correct faults, and one to hope to become brillant at this game.

    Content Late Night GDer who just won a game

A lot of people use the forums to vent and move on because 1. They don't have many real friends. 2. It's late as hell and they love the responses from GD for a good laugh. 3. They honestly don't care and they are posting in an attempt to get banned so they don't have to continue to feed the addiction that is LoL.

    Don't get me wrong, the trend is noticable by Stevie Wonder, but calling it out, even if you're a member of Riot, usually isn't an attractive move.
    The goal of this post is:
    1) To entertain...
    2) To point out the absurdity of this post type. Much better to ask for help with a specific situation... I think the 'how should I play in this situation' threads are way more interesting and positive.

    Well... That pretty much sucks. Sorry to hear that. Leaverbuster does ban people like, though, I doubt that makes you feel any better about the loss. Sorry.

    Wait until you are feeling good and play. I find I peak after a game or two of normals but before I'm fatigued..
