The Ten Commandments
1) Thou shalt start every game with boots and pots.

2) Thou shalt type out "mia" in chat when the enemy is missing in lane, regardless of whether or not you pinged.

3) Thou shalt not emote.

4) Thou shalt either spam laugh or recall for bm'ing.

5) Thou shalt replace every use of the word "inting" with "feeding".

6) Thou shalt call players "noobs" when they are feeding.

7) Thou shalt not purchase a skin costing more than 975 RP.

8) Thou shalt use the default ward skin only.

9) Thou shalt only ban champions with horrible game designs and/or annoying fanbases (see champion matchups, my opinions are objective).

10) Thou shalt not play more than 30 ranked games in any split/season.
Some actual gameplay tips
* I like to leave my ball in a "forward" position when laning. It creates less distance for the ball to travel when q'ing than when I'm carrying the ball on my person. Bonus points if you can zone an enemy off a cannon minion or punish them for it.

* When my team is doing drag or baron, I like to leave my ball in the shortest pathway to the objective, sit back at the circumference, and stare at it like a Demoman staring at his sticky trap (zoning enemies is usually more valuable than contributing to drag/baron damage). Bonus points if you ward/kill blast cones for other paths. Even more bonus points if a dumb adc walks over your ball.

* If your Q is down but you need to ult right away, consider doing an R-flash combo while carrying the ball (not Flash-R). The logic is the same as a Vi Q-flash or Ezreal E-flash (rip AP Ezreal).

* Alt-E is your friend.

* Use your ball to "facecheck" bushes.

* Ignite Tryndamere when he ults, because everyone knows Ignite lasts longer.

* Click the Shaco clones and look for the one with no items, because surely Riot will never patch that.
Why orianna sucks
Came across this video recently, it reflects a lot of my feelings regarding not just Orianna but the state of the game in general:

If it could be phrased in one (compound) word, "power creep" is the main killer of classic champs like Orianna. I personally believe it's at least part-planned obsolescence, since Riot stands to gain a lot by continuously pushing both old and new players into the newest trendiest champions (as well as the skin *****s; Seraphine is the worst offender of both making classic champions obsolete (rip Ori, Sona) and functioning as a cash cow)

>I think the best way to bring her back is to, unfortunately, power creep her a bit.

Nonono, this is the only part of the video I heavily disagree with. The entire video prior to the proposed solution demonstrated that champions buffs, nerfs, and reworks do not exist in isolation. Say we amp up Ori to have (yet another) reset mechanic like Ahri, Twitch, Yi. It's totally pointless, the problem just gets compounded to the existing pool of classic champions that has dwindled to a mere handful and is kept on life support solely by bloated ratios and base numbers.

The real solution is to scrap every new champion and rework from the past ~5 years (I consider Ornn to be a good cutoff point). They all invariably suck design-wise with only few mediocre exceptions, not because they suck individually (well, some do) but because they were released without any serious consideration for how they fit in the league of legends landscape. The last "new" champion that was both an S-class design and knew their place within the game was Bard. Kalista, Azir, and Gnar also come to mind as S-grade champions that have become victims to obsolescence like Orianna.

It's wishful thinking though, and this mini-rant will fall on deaf ears.
