[Official] The League of Legends Club - Page 1087

post #10861 of 17789
I've been playing LoL off and on for the last year but haven't really gotten into it until recently. A work friend and I started playing normal games together and I find myself really starting to enjoy the game. I'm only level 13 at the moment, but at the rate we've been playing, it shouldn't take long to reach 30. I just submitted my request to join the club and look forward to joining up with any of you guys (or girls for that matter). My favorite champions to play as currently are Cho'gath, Diana and Sion. I'm still trying to learn the LoL lingo so bear with me if I don't fully understand when you're trying to explain strategies and such with me.

I can't believe this.

Play a lot. That is my only advice. Don't give up after two losses. Just play a ton and treat it like normals. Your normal ELO is where you deserve to be, so why not your ranked? I know it seems weird but it has worked for a bunch of friends as well as me. Play whatever role your team needs, try to get good with all of them. Keep your team positive (this one is big), and offer to help other lanes if they need it. If you're destroying your lane, push it up and go gank the adjacent lane. If you're the jungler tell your lanes to stop pushing if they want ganks (especially if they are losing lane). If they are losing badly, camp the lane and only jungle on that side of the map. Stay positive and you can move up, you got plenty of time thumb.gif

Oh, and one last piece of advice. After a game, look at who did well. If they were polite and positive all game, go check out their ranked history and match history. If they look like they deserve to be higher, add em and duo queue. That way there is a 5/8 chance the troll/leaver is on the other team rather than the 5/9 chance when you're solo.

I'd recommend watching some streams. They really help new guys and people with 1000 wins alike. Mix it up. Don't ever watch the same stream for too long, everyone has their own playstyles. Also try to pick a stream where they talk. I know I'm gonna get flak for this, but I can't stand Dyrus lately, he just doesn't talk enough. You can learn a lot from streams. Not to mention the season 2 championships are starting sorta soon. That is a great way to learn a lot of stuff. Do keep in mind, though, that what they are doing might not apply to your level yet (due to runes, masteries, skill, ect.) .

Streams:

Oh, and last thing. Feel free to ask anything on here, were all very helpful. thumb.gif

For the watching streams part, watch any to every ELO and understand their mindset on why they did that action and what it could have lead to. Try to ask many questions, though some pro streamers may not explain, the chatroom might.

Support streams with no viewers as well, it gives them some motivation. smile.gif

I think I'm not ready for ranked yet.

I only have 17 champs and 2 pages of runes lol

I was surprised I was doing so well to 1388. I'll just play normals and learn stuff now. Ranked can wait

In all honesty, I really only use two pages of runes. I have tons, but I always end up picking one of two lol. Just make sure you got a good AD one and a good AP one and you're set.

The two I usually end up using are:
AD: Flat damage reds, flat armor yellows, flat MR blues, and movespeed quints
AP: Magic pen reds, mix of flat mana regen and mana regen per level, flat MR blues, and AP quints.

Since I have the IP and pages, I have other stuff for certain situations, but it doesn't make that much of a difference.

Would you guys be up for some Draft on the Proving Grounds? I have been doing a few with friends lately and they are a blast. Next time I make one I'll ask around in the OCN LoL chat and see who's up for one. If you're interested, make sure you are in the chat (at the gear at the top right you can select to start at startup), this way you don't have to join every time thumb.gif

The people behind LoL are investing heavily in esports, even if they're just doing it to advertise their game they're helping esports to grow and they're doing a good job of it. Ocelot's recent sponsorship is an example of that, he's being sponsored because he'll attract people to the betting site that's sponsoring him. Riot, their partners and the community built around LoL are the reasons that that's possible.

If you're not trolling, I don't see where you got that idea.

Edit: Link to ocelot sponsorship article.
