2. When I play Solo Top, it's rare for me to have games where I rape the other team's top and snowball and carry the game.
I'm pretty much like Nasus no matter what champ I take (Malphite, Jayce, Garen), I don't usually lose the lane, farm up, take down the tower and enter the team fight phase usually 3/0 at best and 1/1 at worst.
Any idea on improvements?
higher elo there is alot more team fighting and grping ppl actually watch others lanes and attemps to help...
now as for your solo top problem...if ur 200 losses and 200 wins ur in that 1000 -1100 elo range and ppl are calling for mid top and ad carry roles right off the bat and will probably pick that role no matter what ..this is where learning jungle helps significantly . no one wants it and a good jungler usually controls the game... learn to jungle over top and you will escape your current elo.

I've been playing off and on for a while. Looking to improve skills and teamwork. I enjoy playing as Veigar and Olaf. I'm looking to try Shen at some point.

I'll join OCN LoL chat the next time I fire up the game.

idk about you but even without my passive the lb proc is quite high. So, doesn't really matter.

1. Not really. There isn't necessarily an emphasis just the higher elo you get the better mechanics you will see, which includes being able to both harass and farm.

2. You sound like a pretty passive laner. Being a passive laner is fine, but if you want to win more consistently you need to create more opportunities for your team. I know that is really general advice, but I would have to spectate one of your games to give you more specific advice.

The pain of laning as Leona with the most passive ADC I've met. We ended up winning but missed out on so many easy kills during the laning phase because the damn Ezreal was just farming his way to victory, leaving me to be a PITA to the other carry. But as long as it works out OK I guess...

Btw any opinions on building Leona? I usually start with Faerie charm + 3 wards + 2 pots and my first buy after that is either boots or philo (if I can afford it straight away). After that I usually build HoG and after that either Aegis or Randuin, depending on the situation. Then I get a giant's belt for health and then build Shurelya and after that I go for the item I didn't build earlier. And Mercs ofc when I happen to feel like it. What I build from the Giant's belt is pretty situational, either mallet or sunfire.
The runes I have currently use are flat armour seals and marks, mr/lvl glyphs, 2x GP and 1x MS quints. Any suggestions? I thought about health marks but 32hp didn't seem as good as the extra 8 armour.
Masteries are 1/21/8, straight from Krepo.

I'd like to put a different spin on this. I was playing Corki one game with a random Sona supporting me. The Sona was super-aggressive, where as I preferred to out-farm the enemy, and capitalize on their mistakes rather than out-playing them. This caused a huge problem for me, as I was really bad at playing aggressively, and the Sona insisted that I adapt my play style to hers. Long story short, I played a very bad game and didn't follow up on a lot of initiations. The upside is that I learned a few things from that game.

  1. You are more likely to win by being able to out-play your opponents than you are by capitalizing on the enemy's mistakes.
  2. You must be able to trust your team mates to follow up on your initiation.
  3. You must be able to follow up on your team mates initiation.

Sure, a passive lane is all fine and dandy if you are able to capitalize on the enemy's mistakes, but it puts the fate of the lane in your enemy's hands, and you won't take the enemy nexus by being passive.

Edit: Here is the replay if anyone wants to watch it: http://www.leaguereplays.com/replays/match/2321896/. I was duo queued with Irelia and chatting via Mumble. That was one of the worst games I have played in a long time, but I took a lot away from it. The loss was definitely worth the amount I learned from that game.
