What's up, Mobafire ^^

So I've been planning on playing (a lot of) ranked for a long time now, but a combination of meetings with Mr. Ranked Anxiety and me just playing a lot of normal games with friends (999-973 in normal games) has so far led to me playing no more than 18 ranked games in Season 2 (solo queue).
I realise I need to step up my game, which is why I've decided to make this thread. I'm currently still in Germany at my grandparents (with pretty bad internet), so most of it will be played after Friday (the 27th).

I don't have a long-term goal in terms of elo set for me, as I feel like this is mainly a journey for me to improve as a player rather than getting a fancy rating and being able to show off. However, given the fact that my normal elo (last time I checked) was ~1600, I hope to be able to reach at least a similar rating in ranked and I will always try my best to reach a higher rating than I am currently at.


A little bit of info about me


My main role is the support role, while I'm also pretty good at AD. My mid and top are average, while my jungle has - unfortunately - been terrible recently.

Champions I would consider to be my 'mains' are Alistar, Janna, Caitlyn and Lee Sin. Until I reach a higher rating, I will probably try to focus on playing AD carry in the beginning, as I don't like supporting AD carries that have no clue how to cs.
I'll still be playing a lot of normal games in between to work on my solo top, mid and jungle in order to be able to play those roles at a respectable level as well.

The champs I will play - in order of champs I'll play the most (left) to champs I expect to play less frequently (right) - are:

Support: Janna, Alistar, Blitzcrank, Sona, Leona, Nunu
AD Carry: Graves, Ezreal, Corki, Sivir, Caitlyn, Tristana
AP Mid: Zyra, Ziggs, Morgana, Ahri, Galio
Solo Top: Lee Sin, Irelia, Kennen, Vladimir
Jungle: Amumu, Lee Sin, Skarner, Malphite

Testing: Fizz, Orianna, Shen, Lulu, Miss Fortune

Though it is possible I'll add specific champions to this later (should I find myself having trouble in certain matchups), I'll most likely try to narrow this down to 1 or 2 champions per role (especially for mid, jungle and top as those are not my main roles).
(29-08: Changed to new roster)


Starting point

*cough* does that cuz he has the lowest elo in the team *cough*

Well good luck mate:D in your AD roster I'd suggest to get better at corki, ez, graves and trist
Caitlyn can't rly carry that good even tho I played her a ****load in ranked as well^^

And another tip .. cc wins soloQ I usually learn it the hard way lol.

Also don't let trolls/afker/leavers get you down!

AND NAO GO FOR IT VAYNE *derp*

well I try to play a lot more corki from now on his burst is ******ed and he is fun to play the only thing I dislike about him is his lack of range but well at least he has his ult^^

Trist is actually quite easy ^^ just watch khazem or me play her huehue kinda like this:
own early -- farm mid -- own late

What I also do on ADs nowadays is this item "start":
boots + 3pots --> doubled --> tier2 boots + zeal --> IE.
the zeal is ****ing strong (for chasin and escaping) you just gotta calculate it like this:
I could've had a pickaxe = 25ad but with the zeal I get way more hits off = success.
Ofc it delays your IE but that's not rly a problem.

Oh and I also like your topchamps I'm just missing Irelia she is superfun and kinda easy to learn and can carry super hard^^ dunno if you tried her yet and if she is to your liking

My Corki is cursed, I always get good scores but barely ever win the game, hue :P

I've played Tristana a couple of times, just wasn't sure about the amount of burst damage she has early game which made me play her a bit too defensively. Will probably just play her a bit to find out and it'll be k :3

I have played Irelia before (she was one of the first champs I played top actually), just haven't done so in a while. Was thinking of adding her, but as I said I feel like I should actually be narrowing my selection down rather than adding more because otherwise I'll just play a lot of champs without really being good with any of them.
I'll probably try her sometime soon in normals again though ;)

I had exactly the same problem with corki lol I dropped him for like a year cuz of this ****:D

I played 4 games in a row always went super fed (like 15/2 10/0 etc) but couldn't carry.
The thing about corki is his damage is ******ed you shouldn't underrestimate it even if you are on like half hp and your enemy ADC is full health you are usually stronger - at least in small skirmishes --> W - E - AA - Q - AA + some rockets.

Y well ^^ I figured. Just give her some love^^

anyway:D I'll stop spaming you thread now and will be back sometime soon after I see results

Upon reaching 1600, at dawn, look to the east.
