// UPDATED 11.3.2013



Season 2 highest ELO: 1580
Season 2 placement ELO: 1500
Season 3 starting: Silver V
Current: Gold IV with placement matches.

So basically I started out from 1150 ELO. I carried myself up with Nunu support and Vayne adc combo with premade. Then I started loosing again and fell to around 1300. I then started to go back to basics:

*Csing
*Warding
*Maining roles where people are not good at
*Team-wise picks
*Just overall strategies and consideration.
*Knowing how to win trades & positioning.

So now I main:

Support: Leona, Taric, Lux.
ADC: Draven, Draven, Draven, Caitlyn.
Jungle: Jarvan IV, Maokai.
Mid: I never go mid lane unless necessary
Top: I never go top lane unless necessary

I've just been playing games now and ended up to Gold IV and prolly soon Gold III tier :3

Well best of luck. My journey for a good ELO started where it stopped. I played about 5 matches, won the first 3 lost the last two.

And then bam... Games with trolls. And I kept getting mad because I wanted to win more... so I kept playing ran into feeders and all that crazy stuff...

And bam 863 from the starting 1200....

I'm not even bothering with Ranked.

Edit: I have no issues playing with 1200+ players either.

I'm not quite sure how to build Yorick, but I know that they ALL seem to rush Manamune, or at least at my Elo. I dunno what you'd build next though.

Rushing Manamune is fine, but generally you wanna capitalize on it with Glacial Shroud and Sheen.

Getting Warmog's Armor after Manamune leaves you with very little damage or utility.

I also see 0 Gp10, which strikes me as surprising. Yorick is mostly utility late game, plus most Yorick builds are very expensive. I'd assume that Philosopher's Stone is a given, and Heart of Gold optional.

If I helped you, click that +rep!

No I mean rushing manamune + warmogs
Normally when you go yorick you either
Leave tear as it is + get glacial / other tanky item then get manamune

or you go

Manamune + glacial + trinity force


something like that

And warmog's is typically not a good item to get currently. With items you aim to get items that benefit / harm your team and your enemies. Getting tanky items solely for tankiness is something no one would ever do. One of the reasons why Thornmail sucks :3


also most pro players I see tend to get one doran's blade (not sure why)

Just to clarify; I have changed the position of the items. It's a habit and I dunno why.
I usually rush Manamune if the enemy I'm facing is squishy and to get rid of mana issues. Usually like this time, I went Boots > Tear of goddess > Giants belt > Negatron cloak > Manamune > After laning phase ended, I went for some armor + warmogs. I only take warmogs if I'm fed.

Was facing ap top.

ELO Change: +16 - Current 1236


Bans: Shen, Malphite, Kassadin, Darius, Morgana and finally, but not last Amumu


Match: The game ended up in our victory :3 I got flamed for choosing Trundle, but ignored haters and did my job. Nothing much to say here. My team overall was really good, much better than I could have even thought.






SECOND GAME







ELO Change: +14 - Current 1246


Bans: Shen, Malphite, Darius, Morgana, Yorick and I can't remember the last ban, sorry.

Match: The game started out really well and victoriouse. Our Corki got the first blood and I got triple kill while invading Nautilus' blue. The game got tougher, because our Kassadin feeded mid hard. I didn't expect to take that many kills, but when I ganked top for exmaple, our Garen often did not finish the kill so I had to take it, but he was just fine and has pretty amazing score i'd say :P

Bans; Can't remember :/
Match; We ended up loosing as u can see.. I got third pick and still got Malphite solo :D
I thought yeah, we've got this. After 6 minutes >.> 8 - 25.
My team gave 3 kills early game to Teemo which was bot lane with blitz and Caitlyn soloed against me O.o Well I bought some armor and left top 4-1 score. I roamed quite a lot, becasue rest of my team were doing horribly. Bot lane had Alistar which left laning phase 1-6 with Graves 2-7. Our whole team forced Graves to get kills and then he decided to troll and buy full dorans, but in the end he bought proper items. We lost every single team fight, because either Graves Alistar or Diana went 1-2 v 5 and left us with defending. Mid lane was down completly at 20 minutes. Game ended and we got flamed by Graves for being noob, even tough we forced him to 16-13 after 2-7 laning phase.


tl;dr Douchebag Graves and bot lane Alistar.

You should get a bigger "carry" roster. A lot of the champions you are using rely on your team not failing lol. From your roster you should jax top whenever possible, though Yorick does win lane he is not as reliable of a carry champ . Also Jayce is a good Elo farmer right now if u can play him.


Check out my complete guide to top lane here.
