Maybe I should adc more. This game my stats weren't great but that's only because all four of my teammates (including our "support" AP Nidalee) were heavily fed and cleaned up the kills pretty fast, which was fine by me as it became an easy win. But the reason I think I should adc more is that I find 70-80% of the hardcore feeding I get on my teams is from a bottom lane, and if I go adc then its guaranteed their adc isn't going to get fed; and there's also a chance (like in the previous Ashe game) that I'll get super fed and carry late game. Only problem with this obviously is I'm super reliant on teammates at times since an ADC is public enemy number one and a fairly easy kill if my teammates don't feel like peeling for me. That game I didn't have hardly any kills but we still stomped bottom lane and I find I'm able to do that quite often if my support is even slightly competent.

Has anyone else had any success climbing in ranked by playing mostly ADC or is it just too team reliant?

Played ADC again against a Blitzcrank + Miss Fortune; I honestly think Blitz is one of the easiest supports to play against, if you dodge his hooks or simply stay behind minions he's utterly useless. I don't think I've ever lost to one in recent memory. He had two or three annoying hooks on me that came through walls in the late game which is why I died so much, but other than that we all did a great job getting carried by Riven. Pantheon did well too other than having way too many deaths (I'm also about 90% sure he was high/drunk based on his incredibly strange behavior in chat all throughout the game), decent game overall didn't carry but I did my part and I'll take the LP and move on. GG.

Tiamat / Hydra is better than BT because the active is an extra spell, but there's no point in upgrading to Hydra so early because the upgrade from Tiamat to Hydra doesn't give you much damage. IE is good because a crit nearly triples your AA damage, which gives you IMMENSE burst, Youmuu's is good because the active gives you movement speed which is good for catching enemies out, 20 armor penetration is really good, and it gives crit chance which furthers the effectiveness of IE.

People call it my build seeing as I was the one that introduced it to MOBAFire, but I only started using it because I saw Insoy using it. Insoy being a Diamond 1 Talon main with over 1k Talon games played in ranked alone, counting both seasons.

Say what you want, but a build that can 1-shot squishy enemies even with your R on cooldown is insane.

in fact i was just asking, not saying was bad :D

oh trust me his build was nothing compared to how he was acting in chat, I was extremely worried at the beginning that he was so high he wouldn't even know what was happening and just feed (seen it multiple times before) but no he did fine in the end so whatever. And I've seen MUCH weirder builds than that.

The "say what you want" part wasn't directed at you, just at anyone that says the build is merely "mediocre". :P

And you forgot the fact that your build was used by me since like 1 patch after the League of Cleavers :P


...And the Fact that the Tripen Combo has been the Dominion Meta since the End of League Of Cleavers

Rather strange game, but in the end Yi and I carried hard enough for the win (with help from Volibear as well). I say it was strange because I really did not think we were gonna win at first, our Ashe was unbelievably toxic and a terrible player to boot. Leona wasn't any better skill-wise but at least she didn't flame. We lost a couple teamfights late game from sticking around too long but other than that the damage from Master Yi and myself was too much for them to handle so we won. It was quite fortunate Yi and I were so fed, because Ashe did absolutely no damage whatsoever and her positioning was just horrid.

And of course Riot has to leave me 2 LP out of a series by giving me 19 instead of 21...would it really have been so bad to just put me in a series? Sigh.

Well at the end of the day if you're aiming to hit gold, what really matters is MMR, not winning your silver 5 promotionals as soon as possible. :P

I'll be Gold in no time if I keep getting Talon with favorable mid match-ups. Poor Malzahar was quite defenseless once I picked up Quicksilver Sash.
