I have made a multitude threads about my ranked playing. I was around 40-50 games when I started a thread called "100 ranked games in a row" where I indeed climbed from some 900 to about 1050 elo after like 50 games. Then I did the same stupid mistake I had been doing before and thus dropping. Went down to 800 or so. Hovered there until I did another "wow, this is ranked but I play it like normals" and went down to just over 700 Elo.

From there I thought "**** this", played a bunch of normals to train a few champs then focused on ranked again. I have since gone from just over 700 to just over 860 and slowly climbing.

I often get to play what I want since I go either AD as tristana or Support as Taric. I have over 65% winrate with both of them and a total of around 55-56 games played with them.

I will now start to upload ss and a report from every game I play in ranked. This is good cause it forces me to think about my mistakes, my game and my build. It also gives me a moment to think and breathe between games.

The last 11 ranked games I have 8 wins, 3 losses. The losses are Tristana, Lux and Ez. The wins are Tristana (4) and Taric (4).

Unless I get people who go full ****** we win when I play those. Like that Tristana loss, where first our mid afk's cause of no ganks, then jungle afk's and then we had nothing else to do but to lose really.

Goal: I want to get back to 1200 elo before season is over so I can start over from scratch next season. I have learned so much this season and want to use it without starting with a disadvantage!

mhm I guess elo will be reseted again to 1250 like it was from s1 to pre-s2

i was stuck pretty long at 1100-1300 elo and i didnt know exactly what i haven been doing wrong.
people told me i need to know every role and be able to play like 2 champs in each role.
now I think this is so wrong. you should specialize in 1 or 2 roles with 1 or 2 champs each, preferably with not banned champions.

that way I got out from there with graves/ez only. I dont play jungle at all, why would I anyways when I know I suck big balls there, will only give an advantage for enemies if i jungle.

so you might think about it, if you are good with trist/taric, try to play them as much as possible + when thinking about making your champ roaster bigger, get another ad/support, dont switch to other lanes. thats at least what i think

good luck!

and yeah some games are unwinable, dont worry about them :P

I am officially the worst at getting screenshots. I went and lost two games, as tristana no less. I won lanes both times but got fcked later because of on time lux support who didn't want and one time toplane who fed hard and jungle who didn't gank no lanes.

I can't blame others for losses, but I didn't win my lanes hard enough to carry others. I am just over 840 now.

Im in the same boat as you bro. I won my first 4 games (out of luck) and then it just went downhill. I got down to ~100 elo before I really started to read guides and learn about the game. At first I was like You don't just auto attack minions. Madness. So I started my toguh uphill climb and currently reside at ~750 elo. Im patiently waiting for season 3 so that I can show the world my AD carry skillz. Gl trust me we both need it.
Please +Rep me if I gave good advice or helped you in anyway.

Thing is that my theoretical knowledge of the game hasn't been lacking in my journy, but my mechanical skills are sadly lacking. I have never been the kind to aapush a lane or so, but I need to get better overall.

Taric is a winning game for me right now. It does help that their ashe sucked and our graves was good. 858 Elo. So one more win and I am over where I was when I started this thread. Which is the basics of climbing. So I really need to do that. 118 wins in ranked, 132 losses now.

Going for 1st goal getting to equal in wins/losses and when I am there I am around 1k Elo. Next goal is getting back to 1.2k elo before season is out.

Ok, life threw me lemons and I failed at lemonade. I dropped a bit due to playing badly and can't really prioritize lol that much now so I stand at proud 821 elo. And that is actually after winning 3 of the last 4.

Soo. Negatives: still not good enough to carry baddies. Need to work on lots of basics like last hitting while being harassed and keep map awareness even when engaging.

Positives: I am back toplane a few games now and have done good as teemo. Feeling confident that I can climb to where I want to be. But not before season end.

A streak of bad luck AND bad play intersected my path in life. Fell to about 760 and for the next 6-8 games always ended up with the same number of wins as losses. But now I am back on true track where I started my ranked threads this season. Not in ELO but in lane. I started well toplane when I was around 1k and did well as Lee Sin and Riven. Then, apart from my travels to lower elo (just above 700 as worst) I ended up around 800 and have since gone via botlane (trist and Taric is still my most played) and now back toplane. My last 11 games was 10 top and one adc.
They look like this:
Toplane Irelia - faced Volibear and gave up fb but after that shat on him in lane.
Toplane Teemo - faced Jayce. Had a hard lane but we came back in teamfights and won.
Toplane Teemo - faced Jax. Sloppy at first and gave up fb due to engaging in too heavy a wave (I died less than 0.5secs before he did) . Then literally shat on him with 3 more kills. Died once more to Fizz then my gf called sick from work and I had to leave.
Another 5 toplane teemo. Won 3, lost 2. Not once of these did I do really bad. One I got hardcountered by renekton but I came back and finished with a positive score. We lost that one though. The other loss I faced Amumu and toyed around with him, got camped by hecarim and still hardcarried. Yet though I drew almost all of their jungle focus and asked mine to stay away the rest of our lanes lost hard enough for me not to be able to carry.
Then came a Tristana game. Went pretty decent but no hard carrying done. We won that one by being slightly better on all positions.

10th game is another Teemo top. Faced Volibear with ignite and exhaust. Managed to fb him 1v1 at lvl 2. Then just went on pooping on him and their jungle. 15 kills and about 4 deaths. We had a kha jungle that got more fed than me and then dc'ed. But by that time we were enough ahead to win hard until he came back about 10 minutes later. Then we finished.

Last game I am 4th pick but still get top. Their second pick takes Teemo the bastard so I consider who I've had a hard time against top and end up going Yorick. In an early 1v1 I get fb, working towards a sustainable harass I go for mana crystal and pots+ward. With w+e combo I push him out of lane and freefarm. I stay ahead in items and lvls but until around lvl 8 he keeps up in farm. This is where I start to get double kills alone when their Kha comes top. Earlier I got assists from our rengar counterganking.

I end the game with 11/2/xx and like 20% more farm than any on their team.

I am back at 814 and rising steady now. Winning 8 of the last 11 (which sadly only means 5 games where I gained Elo I didn't later lose. Winning 8 of 11 is great and still it isn't even more than 60 Elo gained at the most. Had I these stats from the start I'd have been at around 1400.

I need to improve my farming. I usually win farm, but getting 30 farm more than enemy on this elo makes little difference. I need it to be 50-60. I need to work away the greed and better my map awareness alot, even though I am better at that than I thought.

Oh and be better at knowing how much damage each skill and aa does.

Do you know how to screenshot? D:

But keep going, you're nearly 900, aim for 50-100 elo blocks and then take breaks :)

I do know how to ss, but I tend to only take time to play just about the time I need for a game and not spend the time at the pc afterwards. That summary was written on phone while in bed xD
