So since narcissistic threads are all the rage right now, I thought I'd join in. Goal is to give a bit higher elo perspective on how the game is being played. I'll update this thread from time to time with random stuff, but it's not gonna be one of those spam threads where I take a screenie from every game because that's way to much work. It's enough work to properly capitalize and punctuate this paragraph which I haven't done for months.

Current Elo (as of 11 August, 2012): 2079
Top Elo: 2080
Chart

Pros I've played with (new from original post bolded) - Atlanta, TD Paradoxical, Quantic Yazuki, Quantic Nien, Quantic Hai, Quantic WildTurtle, Crs Elementz, Crs Westrice, CLG Voyboy, TSM Reginald, MP Nk Inc, AL Zekent, MP Pobelter, Xpecial, TheOddOne, Crs Liquid, Lapaka, 4not Kramer121, 4not OneBadBrad, LzH Dejester, LzH Jaximus, LzH Ted Stickles, TD NintendudeX, TheRainMan, MME I Got A, MME Next, TGF Swift, TGF Pinkuu, TGF Koala, TGF Keun, TPA Lilballz, unR REDEYES, unR Mohrisbetter, d IWDominate

Semi-Pros/Well known people I've played with - Phreak, Cris, Dan "Man" Dinh, Best Riven NA, InvertedComposer, L0CUST, VMan7, Roku, Champion Mage, Guardsman Bob, nicosharp, Cruzerthebruzer, Burbs, Only Nidalee, KSG Umashi, Riot serif, some other riot guy, Colbycheeze, Rambo, Kararawr, Grackis, Reidan, MalfusX, Riot Jatt

MOBAFire people i've bumped into at some point (without duo q) - SixSonatas, sL Nova, Throatslasher, Xaioli, Booshido, Taggrin, Enmadaio, Gravefury

Top Bans (in order): Alistar, Malphite, Zyra, TF, Shen, Ezreal, Blitz, Yorick, Diana, Morg

Thoughts - Shen has lost A LOT of power since his nerfs, and actually isn't that op anymore. His ult is very strong and he's still amazing in both 5s and solo q... But his laning is no longer godlike and if you ult out of lane and don't succeed, you will be severely punished for it. Jungle shen is VERY slow but does have kickass ganking ability.
Ezreal is probably the strongest AD carry in the game right now, his kit just synergizes so well.
Malphite doesn't lose top to anyone... Great jungler as well.
Zyra is still op.


Being Played a Lot:

Top - hard to say, really.. irelia, vlad, jax probably.
Mid - Zyra, Ahri, TF
Bot - Ezreal, Graves, Corki
Support - Taric
Jungle - Skarner, Nocturne, Amumu

Other Notes: From an outsider's view, 2k is like the holy grail of elos. In my eyes it's the new 1700. It seems like everyone nowadays is 2k and to truly consider yourself one of the best, 2.2k+ is where you need to be. That is my new goal, and I am also passively searching for a new team while I am doing this.

Earlier I was on a team full of 2k+ players and we were having a lot of success. Scrimmed another 2k team and stomped them. Scrimmed jpak's team (all 2.2k+) and lost, though I would say every lane was close but mine (****ing malphite...). After that had to leave for a week, and two players on the team just completely disappeared, team was disbanded. Played on some other teams, a lot of 1900 players aren't that good, because like I said there are a ton of them.

Kinda showed me that it's time to stop being content sitting at this elo and kick it into gear and win some games, which I've started to do now (finally). 2k is no longer enough.

Tips - Honestly people continue to search for the "secret" to beating elo hell. The truth is there is no secret. No, spamming one champ every game does not guarentee you elo. Nor does being nice to everyone all the time. Nor does saying "not support" in chat and never ever supporting (see: orB Lemonnation, rank 1 plays only support). I've smurfed enough times to know that elo hell does not exist. No, elo hell is not at all elos. It's a myth. You will lose some games. You will lose due to trolls. It happens. If you are truly better than your elo, you WILL climb, and once you get that through your thick head that YOU are the sole reason of why you gain and lose elo, you will start to climb (if you are good enough). Nomadz and I run kill lanes bot and stomp at 1700. I've gone AD teemo at 1700 and gone legendary in 10 minutes.

When my queue pops I usually ask for top. It's not just top, you can carry out of every role, it just happens to be the role I main. I usually get it. If I don't get top I'll usually lee jungle, or trist bot, or support. Good knowledge of the game will allow you to carry out of every role. Abuse your resources... There are tons of helpful threads on the forums, tons of streams, tons of stuff on reddit. There really should be no reason why you can't improve. I still need to improve, and that's why I have set higher goals for myself.

Anyways that will prolly wrap it up for now, ask me any questions in this thread.

Some VODS:
Udyr Vs Burbs (actually a really really good game, our jungle blitz didnt gank and outfarmed their jungle, so troll)
Ahri pt 1Part 2 (just a really good game, so long I had to split it into two videos)
Jax commentary (vs vman)

Thanks to Xiaowiriamu for the sig!

Nice to see some of your insight on the things.

Around what times do you usually stream?

Froggen? The best ap-carry on EU with Alex does one hell of an Anivia.

Btw I saw BFjiji practice Anivia the other day!

Just because Froggen plays Anivia it doesn't make her a common ban/pick. It doesn't even necessarily make her any good.
