tarzaned was rank 1 season 6

Shes fuckn broken as shit. This is why tf blade can get 3 accounts to rank 1,2 and another in top 100. Akali. rank 1 Tf blade akali----- 70% (191W 80L) 2.96:1 KDA. A player considered mediocre last year just shitting on everyone including challenger games cuz this champ is stupid as fukkkkk!

Never said to lane, buy that when the shrooms start to actually hurt, but I'm saying it because at around the 30 minute mark and no one has bought one is just kind of rediculius ~18-25 minutes in it starts to be useful, but still the people who are in late game and complain about "noob champ no skill just r everywhere" when you have a choice to deal with it is kinda alarming

Only a bronze mind would bring an oracle to top lane during lane phase. You would have no wards. Just like a bronze.

: so youre whining on the boards cause in a flex you inted your ass off...ok it isnt about ranked its about not having a complete fucking jackass on your team lol. Literally would have been flamed in any mode.
That's actually true. I've seen people flaming in bots games. I don't like the flavor of bronze-gold flame especially though. Least someone who knows the basics of how the game works has something of substance in their salt usually. Like for example in diamond someone will bitch about their leash or something blatantly troll like the jungler taxing lane farm randomly. Whats a typical silver flamer gonna say when something goes wrong? Omfg ff15 noob retard idiot feeders always fuck. Wtf diamond 5 lose lane to platinum playrrrrd boosted plz report. I've never been called boosted by another diamond player. Ive never called a diamond player boosted. That's disrespectful as fuck. People put in serious work to climb diamond+. I beat diamond 2 renekton player in lane and game in flex. So what? Its a singed player trying out renekton. I'm not retarded enough to think that I'm a better player or even go as far as to flame them for losing. Kinda like a Teemo player trying fiora and just not giving a shit if I lose cuz I'm just getting a feel for a champion thats much different from what I usually play. I think I'm actually done caring at all what any flex q retard has to say to me.

I am G2 in Flex. I personally think flex is a better test of skill. Practice is not about getting a decent opponent. It is more about learning a champ and warming up. Ranked > Norms and should be treated that way.
I mean I'm either trolling or playing something new in flex every game and somehow still have 50% win rate in it. Congrats on climbing nearly a full tier higher with ur premade than someone building 3 zeal items and 2 cull with a blitz top. Just imagine if a couple bronze got together and went full try hard could get challenger flex probably. Literally. Every flex game is a complete joke. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy how troll all the games are. Its a reprieve from the stress of solo q where people actually work their ass off to try to beat you. Its worse gameplay than solo q cuz it ends up usually 3 amigos q up together and just spend the entire game touching eachother while they flame the random nasus jungle and nidalee support who just don't give a shit. Lol. Thats actually flex q in a nutshell. Does anyone good play flex even? Never seen it on anyone master+ stream. All good though enjoy playing with 2 or 4 friends or whatever in the queue no one takes seriously. Just don't be a flamer ;)...

You need to use a reason to convince some rioter why they should do this. No one is convinced by someone just saying "do [this]". Put some kind of effort into your writing.
: Practice is for norms. Flex is a ranked queue and should be treated as such. "but they need to learn that it's a joke queue" Just because you take it as a joke doesn't mean others should. Grow up!
You can't seriously go into a normal looking for a decent opponent. By the way- -- "If kids would just forget about what rank they are for one second and think about how they could play better maybe they would actually have a chance to get out of silver after 5 years" {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
: I don't who those players are that actually cares about flex but they need to learn that it's a joke queue lmao. I'm not going to be playing my solo queue champs in that mode since riot doesn't want to separate the rank stats from both queues.
I guess I could understand it a little bit if it was like for end of season rewards but preseason flex rage.... omegalul
Rioter Comments
: MysticMan I agree. This might be personal bias and preference, but I hate people who play the game like that. LoL is a 5-man team game for a reason. Dying over 10 times in any ranked game (outside of bronze) is never a good thing for your team. However, Crede777 I would argue that this does not even out. With such high volatility it is way more likely that you just get lucky and go on a win streak and climb from that, compared to the games being flattening over time. In addition, why would Riot want there motto to be, "play 1000 games so that eventually your skill will overcome all of the fed Yasuo's and feeding Teemo's and you will climb out of silver - hopefully you don't quit before then because you are tilted by all of the meta changes, the whirlwind of feeders, and the generally lower skill level that you are playing at". In my opinion, it should be, "as you develop a higher level of skill at the game and consistently perform, you climb until you are no longer consistently performing at the level of the average player in your tier." The fact is the "it will even itself out strategy" just plain doesn't work. Again i reference you to my statistics that average that of a Diamond player and my 68% win rate on Lux (over 100 games) last season, as well as the 1000s of other disgruntled players that are stuck in Silver/Gold. In hasn't evened out plain and simple. I'm not complaining, I love this game, I am just trying to clearly state a problem that exists.
People make a smurf all the time and have no problem getting out of silver. Heres one I made http://na.op.gg/summoner/userName=CountlessOrphans its gold 5 and has like plat 4 mmr after like 20 games. I inted 5 of the promos so that it would start in silver elo even. You could do that if you actually had the skill to be in a higher league. Look this one: http://na.op.gg/summoner/userName=kidjoey. Guys way better player than me too but he never even lost a single game in placements on the account. That includes playing like 2 games in a silver elo. Then maybe like 3 games in gold elo. 4 games in plat elo. Then his last game of placement in d5 elo. If you have 69% win rate lux why not just play lux??? then u should be able to climb out of silver. If you really believe you're just stuck in silver because of ur team, make(or get) a smurf and play out ur placements. See what happens after you play 100 games on a new account if it has been ur teammates holding you down forever.

: Teemo is a lane bully ranged toplaner. Since you like that playstyle I would suggest heimerdinger, swain or kennen. Idk if you build nashor's tooth ever but kayle does that too and she is currently one of the highest winrate toplaners so you could try her out. You complain about boredom, maybe try running around with singed for fun. If you want to eat people try out cho'gath. If you like teamfighting rumble is a beast. Good luck and I hope to never see Teemo again lol.
Actually, good suggestion. Probably those champs fit my style more than something like fiora. Thanks.

There's nothing wrong persay with teemos. Please use some reading comprehension. Your post was on the topic of looking for a new champ and within the scope of comparing them to teemos. Are you following along so far? Ok. Teemos compared to 99% of the other champs has an exceedingly simple kit as well as very simple playstyle. Please try to keep up. So it is difficult to accurately compare or suggest other champs you may enjoy playing because there is really not any other champs that share his design. Make sense? And *you* literally just made an entire post explaining *your* problem with being a teemos main. If your confused there is a little arrow in the bottom right hand corner, press that and it will take you to several paragraphs you wrote, try re-reading them. Having your otp (teemos) banned is part of being a teemos main. But I digress... Also have you considered jungling? If you like teemos, shaco (or maybe eve) have a somewhat similar style if you enjoy teemos for his stealth component (I assume you do, that's really the only way to play him effectively). Also in the jungle you don't have to worry about counterpicks or matchups really. And junglers tend to not be banned as much as carries in lane.
No the problem is being ONE TRICK PONY AND CHAMP NOT AVAILABLE. You don't understand. There is one champ I play better on than others by far. It has nothing to do with a complaint with teemo champ design or teemo "taking no skill" lmfao. God I'm done ever reading or responding to ur comments again. Such waste of time.

: I literally only support, and 99% of the time it's being myself ((Lux)), so I know where you're coming from. I'm not actually sure what you could do regarding other champions to play. Honestly, I see no reason to play anything else if you enjoy the champion, and you're doing well with him. A good step towards improving further would be to go back through your history and watch a few (or a ton of) replays. Really analyze what you need to do to not make the same mistakes you again, and make a conscious effort to avoid those mistakes more and more each game. You're already able to admit that you made mistakes. You're already 1/2 way there to fixing whatever problem it is you have.
The issue is, since there not so many players in diamond, almost certainly if you have someone dodge q then in the next draft teemo is banned cuz those people were on your last team. I'm sure u know what i mean. And I'm fine with dodging, but at this point losing 10 lp kinda blows cuz its harder to get lp in diamond. idk why cuz i was getting like +24 in plat but now its very low in d5. There's also the situation where u don't want to pick teemo into something like swain or pantheon cuz it is just so painful. So at this point, I think the game would just be way easier if i were skilled with just a few more champs.

: Why Safe League Players Will Never Climb and Why Feeders Determine 94% of Games
In my experience, the best way to climb is to not die. Ever. :) Even if your team is feeding, if you can keep a small amount of deaths, you give yourself your best chance to stabilize the game and make for a comeback. Also, remember the only constant in all your games was you. So what your data best represents is teams with a feeder with "salt and light1" in them are unlikely to be the winning team. I played in bronze through diamond and spent plenty of time in each league, except plat was fast. But I'm basically still just a glorified plat cuz i can't climb diamond. Anyways, carrying games and climbing elo requires a mental and emotional stability no matter what elo you are in. I'm just gonna say -- "Maybe you have conditioned yourself to give up in tough games, which is why you lost most of them". Maybe. Can't say for sure cuz i don't know you and i didnt watch your games. Definitely climbing is a grind. I know it's possible though even to win the hard games if you can just keep your mental. Good luck, I hope you don't convince yourself too hard that the game is all about your team cuz that won't help you at all.

Smurfing is a good way to focus on improving without having so much stress from playing on your main account. Try being less toxic to people you don't even know. You're enjoying the shield and anonymity of the internet too much.

: What are some good top laners that have 'staying power'?
I think Teemo might work for what ur thinking about. You can play team fights from the backline and hit the enemy tanks and fight assassins and divers with your other backliners, or you stealth and flank to take one of their carries out of the fight then reposition. Can carry a teamfight if you can stay alive.

: how to get more cs overall ie. farming patterns and how to get cs during grouping times.
Really, it is not about how much cs you get. It's about making the right decisions whether to hit a cs, to respond to zoning pressure, to trade with ur opponent, etc... There's really no hard rule of thumb to how much cs you should have. It doesn't imply u suck at the game if you have 40 cs at 10 minutes. Maybe the enemy jungler was in your lane the whole game. Maybe you actually made a mistake in early levels and got zoned off of the cs. Of course, if you can safely last hit a cs, it should usually be the priority. But there will be many situations when you shouldn't hit a cs. Having the skill to last hit a cs is lovely. Very basic mechanic. You should be able to last hit like almost every cs if ur in a practice game with no opponent champions. But in a real game, it is about considering what the risks and rewards of every decision you make. It's not so much about kda or cs/min as it is the decisions you make that stats can't show.
