Am I doing something wrong (Raise ELO question)
Currently silver 4, capped last summer at silver 2. after that I stopped playing due to limited time.
What am I doing until now.
Fiora: I build her like Riven and always snowball really hard. Only play her when I am first pick and thus I am fully capable of banning what really hurts me.
Olaf: I use him as the ultimate counter to every melee top laner.
Shen: When my teams needs tanking and engaging potential
AP Tristana: She is my main. I snowball really hard, but even so, I can't really carry 4 scrubs. She's too short for that.
Lissandra: When they pick Zed :3 usually ends up really well.
Master Yi: When I am like; let's carry everyone. Snowball but my team picks stupid stuff, with no CC so it is an actual defeat at late game.
Yasuo: I have given them a few tries, but, I really suck with him.
Shaco: He is my go to pick. Gank as much as possible, set-up as many kills as I possibly can for my lanes. My team doesn't really appreciate my late game attempts to split-push.
Volibear: When we need tank and I am jungle.
Graves: My main adc, I usually go ham in lane and snowball hard in the mid game. However late game is a problem.
Ezreal: When we have a poke team comp.
Lulu: I am really damn good at Lulu. I usually win with her.
Problem is. Some of my picks even if extremely snowbally, can't really carry games. I am not the guy who just steals everything and doesn't let his team get any kills which results in late game defeats. When I try to complete my team, there is so much I need to complete (As a top lane main, I apply the 101 rule of top lane to pretty much any role I play). When we are back as a team, I am trying to find the best alternative ways to win, far from the typical "all mid, def-->ace-->push-->win" like split pushing. Also, my team doesn't appreciate my efforts to farm with a character that needs the farm :(
P.S. I can play Jayce, Irelia and Ahri too but my mechanics with them are too dusty.
Should I change my champion roster? Or maybe main a different role?
P.S. I have a tank/bruiser background but I have come to realize that tanking can't get me out of silver (which is my ultimate gold).
P.S.2 I refuse by all means to even think about the possibility of having reached my skill cap.
I play football and soccer as a defender and I have a nearly destroyed right knee thanks to my muay thai training. How harder could be to overcome silver?
