Did you have the same wins and losses for all of your games?

It all depends on the rank of the players you play. If you win the games against the players who had a high rank Silver/Gold you are more likely to get placed in a higher Div.

I won the same but it would make sense that playing against higher division players would place you in a higher division, but for a season reset to win 7/10 and be placed in bronze V takes the ****.

Working my way up solo/ duo queue slowly when I have time with seany and a few others.
Has anyone tried Vel'Koz yet? not sure what to make of it. Played katarina mid vs him and took him to pieces. placed my ward in a brush and you can jump away since all his moves are skill shots.

Made a smurf account for ARAM, sick of getting all those champs I experimented with, in ARAM way too often...far more than my preferred champions (and then someone will dodge :x )...

... man do I feel sorry for the real new players, the experience is painful.
Its to be expected you will get genuine new players and so they will perform rather poorly initially but the worst is the ragers who rage at some poor player getting smacked around by noob stomper smurfs.
I was stomping a bit because I got hold of Lux and got mid against a Veigar, but the top got really unlucky...a Teemo and Wukong pair got obliterated by a Yi and Wukong dual pair of smurfs... pretty blatant as well, the Yi had like 3 vs players and won each with a KDA of at least 4, in our match the Teemo and our Wukong both had over 13 deaths (I was 8 - 2 - xx , mind you the Veigar wasnt a newbie at all... just not a good match up for him).
The attitudes though really show how toxic the community is, I guess its better for new players to experience it early rather than soak up hours of game time and then find out how bad it is.

... still not able to have fun in ARAM though, at level 6 it takes ages to get a match and I only got 1 in 10 chance to get Lux or Nid...more chance to get the usual Nasus or Trundle :P
Sometimes keeping an eye on your stats is not a good thing :P

Vel'koz is pretty good. True damage with the passive, slow and knockup cc, and a long range ultimate that can chunk down multiple targets if used correctly. Mobility champs are pretty much his counter though. Played my promotion matches and got placed into Silver IV, dunno if I'm going to keep playing ranked though, every team I've been in has had some kind of feeder. flamer or disconnect win or lose. Last season was painful enough getting to Silver 1 only to keep losing promotion matches.

I have Vel'Koz and found him rather easy to use myself the few times I got to play him.

I max out his W (then Q) first, using E to pop up the enemy so they cant escape out of the W's secondary hit so easily, and the Q to slow and help land the E pop up.
The Q is great for really annoying your opponents as it has so many angles you can abuse with a bit of imagination, and the E pop up can stop your enemies when they are chasing , hell even the W is a deterrent to many chasers as they dont want to be in that rift to eat the second hit as well.
He is definitely vulnerable, especially to champions that can jump/dash onto him and especially if the can apply a silence or interrupt but it is all about positioning... he is back line artillery, and most useful when staying at the edge of the fight putting in the damage.
He is very similar to Brand as in he tosses out his damage combo and then must wait for the CD, and always looking for that optimal chance to fire off the ultimate which is a fight changer in team fights but easy to waste.

I build him full AP at the moment, but there is room for experimenting...I think a Rylais may be great on him to add more slow and a bit of tanky-ness... I wouldnt bother with a Zhonias as you cant control the ulti while the Zhonias effect is active and if you are positioning properly if you get caught the effect wont save you.

Overall he isnt too bad, dishes out a lot of damage and has some interesting skill shots to use... try playing him while staying on the fringes of his range and avoiding getting too close to the enemy, especially ones with gap closers.

Support would be fine as I main ADC (Sivir atm as she is very strong)

Amazed by the amount of players who pick Cait after I go Sivir thinking its some sort of counter to me.

A good Cait can shut down Sivir pretty hard early game if the players any decent, depends really on what Support each AD carry has though.

I support thresh/Annie/Lulu/Leona if you want to hit me up on
ross swbs, thresh being my preferred.
Vel'Koz is pretty good! chain his moves and its an instanuke. You do have to build AP stack only, but against assassins you do have to be pretty creative. I played Katarina and once I got my T2 boots I took him to pieces.

Team Builder Beta is live till 5 am GMT tomorrow...

I havent tried it yet but I like the idea behind, choose your role and champion and then the game matches you with others based on their choices... no battles for mid (unless being trolled) or rush to type lane / insta lock champions (unless being trolled again).
Sounds good, just curious how will they allow for counter picking ?
Guess this mode wont replace draft picking and just be another 'Normal' mode.

You don't get banned for having your net 'cut out a few times'.
