What can I do as the top laning Yorick when their Kass is 10/something from killing our Nidalee who picked Nidalee into Kassadin and was raging at us the whole game and when my botlane is 4/21 and the Lux support that raged that we didn't have CC (because obviously picking Lux fixes this problem) is afk half the game?

OK the real question :

What to do as top laner when all the lanes are feeding and are braindead? Splitpushing really doesn't always work when your team will spend the time that 4 people are chasing you killing jungle creeps, especially if you don't have a good splitpushing champ.

Also how to get mid lane when not 1st pick? I swear every first pick takes mid and then feeds with it even though I ask politely for it in champ select

yorick generally fails to make a huge impact on the game

if you want to win solo queue then pick a hard carry top lane (see: tryndamere/zed), kill your lane opponent 4 times, and split push the whole game or come into teamfights and wreck face

GENERALLY if you are beating your lane, you'll win games more often than you lose them

THERE WILL BE GAMES where the rest of your team does horribly and you just lose and there's absolutely nothing you can do about that

however, the enemy team is just as likely to get these players, and if you destroy your lane opponent, you should still be steadily gaining elo without much difficulty

as for securing the role you want, there aren't exactly many tips there. in gold and above people tend to respect pick order over call order and you have to roll with that. if you really want mid every game then just duo queue with someone lower ELO than you

1) Pick a spitpusher.
2) Splitpush.

1) Pick an assassin.
2) Dominate lane.
3) Roam.

1) Pick a tank.
2) Tank **** for your team.

1) Not working?
2) Lose.

And ain't no way for you to get mid unless someone gives it to you, so shucks with that. Or offer a lane swap when they start to do badly.

This seems like another one of your 'my teammates suck and I am a god' posts.

Dominate lane and then do all 3 of the things sirell mentioned. Tank ****, kill **** and splitpush ****.

Pick Nasus top.

Farm your Q for 40 minutes. Tell your team to hug their turrets all time.

Build full tank.

Ignore that you have teammembers and just go 1v4.

Win.

This. If you want serious feedback because you feel you are doing things wrong, then ask away. If you want to complain about teammates instead, use your ranked thread.

Not all games are going to be winnable, but you should focus on doing well in your own lane and making sure you win that every time. If you don't play top too often (aka if it's not your main role), I'd suggest sticking to a limited amount of champions, which makes it easier to focus on making sure you're playing the role well enough not to struggle against any top lane mains you might be facing.

Indeed the TA's post is 90% raging about a game that happaned to him, so it seems.

Although people already gave you feedback. I am not sure if he is ever gonna read them /apply them. Or was just hoping for compassion about his game :/

No I was just really mad about that game, I actually need help. I can win top lane pretty easily, but I have trouble doing anything with that when I don't have a good splitpushing champ.
