    all I know, and i forget who I was but it was some melee character, I jumped an akali at like 10% health and since she only was targetable whenever she attacked me, by the time she was dead I was also at 10-20%. that seems a bit ridiculous for hard carry vs hard carry.

    I don't think she'd be that bad if other people on my team would quit feeding her.

    Although playing as her one time I got a mejai's before laning started thanks to a jungle teamfight so that was fun being on the other side of that.

    If you're jumping akali, either lead with CC or have a pink ward/oracles. Otherwise she can just rape you.

    EDIT: Or AoE. Akali shrouds+sunfire/amumu tears= Hilarity.

    Pretty random to be honest. Went up against some awful teams. Had some really competitive games. Got totally swept a few times.

    The problem is that you'll be with people who do not have more than 10 ranked games played and the number of regular games they have played is a completely variable. I've played somewhere in the ballpark of 900 regular queue games. But you can start queuing for ranked at somewhere between 200 and 300 games.

    I'm at about 475 games played, -5 w/l. (I was +2 before yesterday... yesterday sucked). I have to admit I'm nervous about ranked, but I feel pretty comfortable about being able to fill any role with a couple different champs.

    Also don't be discouraged , I started out 1-4 with just terrible teams but I managed to even it out at 5 - 5 . Sometimes you will get nothing but idiots and other you will get awesome people that carry you and are nice.

    Your first 10 ranked matches are considered placement games.

    You are with other folks who have an ELO of 0 and then your actual ELO is calculated from those games. So there's uh. . .differing skill levels.

    Ahhh, no one forced you! At least you did well :D

    I hate when i read that "my team forced me to play xxxx, i did so bad"

    Its like come on, no one pointed a gun at your head.

    In solo queue normal, i play who i want where i want! YARRRR

    Kayle solo top against Karthus and Nasus? NO PROBLEM!

    Nah I got forced into it. 3 way trade failure due to enemy team taking one of the requested champs and then this guy didn't have replacement one to trade and shit got complicated and I ended up an angry blue goat.

    I've played over 600 lol games between normals and bot matches and I've tried every champion except for Sion, Malphite, Renekton, Ryze (I know, it's weird), Swain and Shyvana (I suppose she's going to be free tomorrow so that's out)....am I missing out on something or should I spend all my ip on something else?

    She is no support Yorick, that's for sure.

    Man I've got over 1000 games played and have only touched about 40 some odd champs. You don't need to play them if you read up on their stats and know their item builds etc.

    I really want to try Swain, he seems fun, but he's never free, and I'm not buying him just on that (that's how I ended up spending ip on kat, eve and master yi). I do know everything those champs can do, what they usually build, etc. (though it's rare to see a Swain or a Malphite in normals)

    I ended up going against a Blitz Vayne lane as Soraka. It ruled because I was pretty much able to bully both of them solo as Caitlyn got grabbed (and then took no damage because of the amazing armor bonus on her heal)

    1200 is the base starting point in LoL. 800 is the base starting point in Chess. The more you know!

    Rumble's hilarious to play, and one hell of a great solo topper. Gotta love the flamethrower, which gives him some great harass on opposing melee champs through the minion waves. If he catches a ranged in it early-on they'll just melt too. The tazer's great at harassing from ranged, and the slow from it can definitely help snare down someone who's trying to run away.

    The ult definitely takes some getting used to, though, to get down when and where to drop it. It's got some crazy range, too, since just the initial click of the click & drag has to be in range.

    All this, combined with the fact that he has the Bilgerat skin so he's on a boat makes him one of my favorite champs to play.

    I play a lot of solo top, and all I can say is &%$& that tree. His harass is insane if he actually hits you with his saproling, then it's 3-4 times worse if they explode on you.

    Edit - But having said that, I have never lost a 1v1 lane against a Maokai. The lane just sucks till you can build appropriate MR.

    Get to champ select, draw a pretty good team. I end up going Graves because we need a AD carry and everybody else is melee. Game starts... Jax and Garen proceed to run bot together and refuse to take solo top on either of the characters vastly more suited to it than Graves, because they where in chat together.

    If you're going to do that kind of thing why the hell wouldn't you pick characters even vaguely appropriate for doing a double bot lane together. I hate the LoL community so much.

    Agreed. I like Sona because she has a nice aggressive lane game, but Soraka is so utterly uninteresting I cannot play her well.

    The trick to Soraka is maximising her amazing emotes.
