As someone who has played since season 2, I am finding that I am stuck in the past. I continue to play champions who did very well in the past but no longer shine in todays current meta. My refusal to move on away from my favorite champions is becoming my own downfall. While I have moved on to some of the newer ones, I find myself falling behind the curve by now playing what is considered off meta. Sometimes it still works great, other times I perform like a bronze. And while I enjoy blaming riot for killing off my favorite champions, its really my own stubbornness that's preventing me from really shining.
