iq is not the same thing as learning to adjust to the meta over time, nor is it the same thing as dedication to the game.
Why is it called 'common sense' when it is so rare these days?

To be fair, you have to have very high IQ to play League...

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand League of Legends. The honor system is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of map awareness most of the ganks will go over a typical player's head. There’s also Riot’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into their balancing - this personal philosophy draws heavily from rotational balancing, for instance. The high elo players S4 and up hehe xd understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these metas, to realise that they’re not just frustrating - they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who like League of Legends truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in Phreak’s existential catchphrase “Tons of Damage™,” which itself is a cryptic reference to Riot's unwillingness to keep the game balanced.

And yes, by the way, i DO have a Lamb and Wolf tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 League Points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎
Wishing things were different is a great way to torture yourself.
