Well heres a testimonial for you should you need one.

Since getting help from this man i have seen drastic changes in my gameplay. I've played but one match with him and he does give details as to what you can do better or what you need to stop doing.

He lets you pick apart his rune/mastery pages and gives you in-depth ideas and tactics on whatever champion you may throw at him.



So, since everyone thinks I'm an *******, I'm offering a one-time deal. Tryin' to improve my image and what-not (NA only)
1. I mentor you for free. This includes the following:
a. I keep you on my friends list for a while.
b. You can ask me questions anytime you want.
c. You get 1 free training session 1 on 1.
d. You can spectate me if I'm playing a champion you like.
e. Before I start a game, I'll notify everyone in the mentor section of my flist that i'm about to play and the champ i'm going to play

2. If you are on a ranked team and want some help improving your team play, I will spectate 1 game or will watch 1 replay. I will critique your play and give you tips on how to improve.




3. I'm giving you my pro-*** tips for raising in solo queue. They are as follows:

1. Most importantly, don't pick ****. The following champions should NEVER be picked for solo queue ranked. They are just completely underpowered, and there are stronger choices for their roles.
mid: heimerdinger (see zyra), fiddlesticks (see swain), nidalee (see gragas), viktor (see ahri), xerath (see brand), ziggs (gragas again)
top: fiora, sion, mordekaiser, hecarim, poppy, mundo, akali, garen, rengar
jungle: sejuani, shaco, evelynn, master yi, jayce, pantheon (can do it, but high skill cap, can lose if you don't just rape at the start), any OFF jungler, like renekton, fiora, ezreal, twitch, etc.
adcarry: kayle, teemo, twitch
support: lux, galio, singed, volibear, anyone that isn't a typical support

(YOU CAN WIN WITH THESE CHAMPS, THERE IS NO DOUBT. THESE CHAMPS ARE BORDERLINE VIABLE, BUT THEY ALL HAVE COUNTERPARTS THAT ARE WAY MORE EFFECTIVE AND DO WAY MORE FOR THE TEAM. RIVEN > FIORA. NAUTILUS > SEJUANI. AHRI > VIKTOR.)

2. Spam the most broken champ you can, but make sure you're also really good with that champion. I chose to spam morgana.
broken mids: ahri, morgana, gragas
broken tops: shen, RUMBLE, YORICK, darius, kayle, riven, olaf, jax, irelia, malphite
broken junglers: maokai, skarner, lee sin, malphite, ALISTAR <-BEST JUNGLER IN THE GAME
broken adc's: ezreal graves corki (I personally think tristana, kog'maw, and caitlyn are 3 of the best adc's in the game, but the community is pretty set in thinking that these 3 are the best adc's in the game. Mobility OP)
broken support: soraka, taric, blitz (ONLY AS GOOD AS YOU ARE), alistar.

3. Never support. You're better than everyone on your team. Or maybe you aren't. But don't support. You can't carry your team from support.

4. Abuse counterpicks. If you're 1st or second pick, don't pick a solo lane unless they already picked their top or mid, and then counterpick them. If you have an early pick, go jungle, or pick someone really safe like ahri, morgana, yorick, rumble. If you don't know counterpicks, pm me, message me on league, or start a thread in general discussion and link me to it. there's also a website all about matchups, if someone wants to link it here, that'd be great.

5. Pick CC. CC wins games. If your team has sufficient cc, pick someone that compliments all that cc. Like vlad (ult). If your team is lacking in cc, you definitely have to pick some. Also, encourage people to pick cc in champ select. Hey, instead of soraka, why not taric? Or, instead of fiora, why not riven or irelia? Instead of bs jungler, why not amumu or nautilus?

6. Sixth and most important is, don't be afraid to dodge. If you see stuff you don't like, just walk away. If your team has 0 cc, or all squishies, or double adc, or double mids, or double jungle, or just stupid picks, just dodge. My brother was playing in 1550 elo, and his team was eve jungle and fid mid. I encouraged him to dodge. he didn't, and he lost. He spent more time playing the game than if he'd dodged and waitied 30 minutes. Wait for the very last 3 seconds before the game starts, and then dodge. That gives other people a chance to dodge instead of you, and enough time to make sure that the game will not start. If you wait for 0, sometimes the agme starts, and you're ****ed.

7. Go to solomid and glance at featured/approved guides for the champ you want to run. Sorry to promote another website, but if you want to learn the optimal **** in a concise and trusted way, glance at solomid.

Any other questions, ask me here, or add me in league.

Also, NEVER FORGET TO CALL TIMERS. NO MATTER WHAT YOU PLAY.
Call your own buffs, and their buffs. +5 minutes
DEFINITELY CALL DRAGON EVERY TIME. +6 MINUTES. WHEN IT'S 1 MINUTE TO DRAGON, PING IT AND SAY 1 MIN TO DRAG IN CHAT. AT 30 SECONDS, START PINGSPAMMING DRAGON AND SAY DRAGON NOW
and ofc, keep baron timer. +7 minutes.

If you have a choice between baron and an inhibitor, ALWAYS TAKE THE INHIB. If you take the inhib, it will push all of their lanes, making them defend in base. THEN you go baron after you heal.

When you ace their team, try to get something done. Dragon, towers, steal buffs, as much as you can. If you ace their team and then all run and go heal, you didn't accomplish much.

Yes. Of course. Hit me up on league or here. FYI, I get on league every day at 5:30 central US time. On weekends, i'm on whenever. Hit me up, peoples. Also, please mention when I accept your friend request that you're from moba and mention mentoring. If I add you, and you troll me or **** around with who you are, i'll instantly remove you. You've been warned : /

Sorry, people adding me and saying a bunch of ******** happens often. Gets annoying after the 20'th time.

Glad to see you're willing to help out our community :) Here's hoping there'll be guides on MobaFire that you'll one day endorse. I will say that previous threads in this forum that have demanded money for mentoring have been less than well received, so kudos for not trying to force noobs to pay you for your time.

Maybe we can play an ARAM some time ^^

How the hell is Shaco terrible at low elo?

Win all your lanes, crush enemy jungler, win psychologically.

OT: Happy to see you're helping, but I honestly think you could be nicer. And no, offering mentoring for free doesn't count, it's mostly your attitude.

Well nice to see you are contributing. As jhoijhoi said, hope you come out with guides ^^
Anyways, supports can sort of change games. Blitzcrank grabs; Janna cc; etc etc etc.
I'd so ask for help, but I am suspended until the 8th T_T
