Hey guys/gals Im stuck in elo hell on my other account and I'm having trouble climbing out.

I dont blame my teamates im sure its mostly my own fault and I think it is because I try to play too many different champions.


Do you guys think its possible to play only elise and zyra if i play them non stop and master them and use them to raise out of 1000 elo?


I picked them because they suite my style and I can play;
zyra mid and support
Elise top mid and jungle

So i have all lanes covered except ADC which i dont play anyway. What is your opinion on this idea? I think I would do better with 2 champions that I have mastered rather than 30 I am mediocre at.


With my full time job and family I dont get as much time to play as most others so I think this could be a good idea?


(obv will play others if both get banned.)


btw im new here, these forums and guides seem awesome!

if you dont have a wide variety of champs, you're going to have a bad time.

Ultimately you're not always going to get the role you want. Being locked into 2 champs will only hurt you.

Even if you don't have a lot of time, you need to be able to play 2-3 champs in every role. But that's my opinion.

Additionally, there is no ELO Hell. That is all.

Sorry I shouldn't have said elo hell. Its my elo because I'm not playing good enough to carry games. Im not blaming it on the others.

I guess LOL isn't for me then. there is no way I have time to get extremely good with that many champs. And play enough to stay good with them.

^wrong sir (jeff)

look at that other video by that guy about maining 1 champ =D

Especially since you picked pretty diverse champs, that should work out pretty well. The only main issue is getting countered and getting your picks banned (zyra and elise not uncommon bans), and getting countered (although right now zyra bot is just op, zyra mid doesn't lose hard really except vs kat and assassins for the most part, and elise is super strong). Getting countered can still work in your favor if you are good enough with the champ to just outplay your lane regardless.

You should have at least 1 or 2 other champs in each role to be ready to play as backup, but focusing on Zyra and Elise is not a bad idea at all.

Also, while there not is "Elo hell" (as every Elo is Elo hell lol), there are an influx of bad players right now. Don't be discouraged -- just keep playing and maybe take a bit of a break for a few weeks to let the bads settle down.

If only I could listen to my own advice =D

Thanks so much. This is the kind of response I was hoping for.

I will have a couple champs for each role in case they are banned. But focusing on 1 or 2 champs for people with less time just seems like a no brainer to me.

I will report back in a month and let you know how things are going.

Not even for people with less time, but most people should learn to really excel at 1 or 2 champs. For me right now it's Zyra and Lux, my Kat isn't doing too well this season but she's still up there too.

If you want to add me (if you're on NA), I can help you out with Zyra a bit =o

both =D

23-11 with her right now this season, last season 13-6. Almost a 70% win ratio over 50 games =D Idk why I don't just play her... T_T Pretty consistent with her, if you play her right bot you can get your AD super fed. I literally carried games playing support zyra =D

You can see my profile/hover over my avatar =D

it's wrathofvulcan though

for AP mid I use my ap mp5 MR rune page (2), and supah damage castah mastery page (1); for support, I use my tanky support gp5 rune page (7), and my Joe's weird support page mastery page (14).
