What's the current meta like? Top tier champions? What is the *usual* build for a top and for an ADC? I'll maybe have some other questions later on.

based on what i've seen at worlds and my personal experience, there's a real bias towards tanks in the meta. 3 or 4 tanks works pretty well. so just go tanky i'd say. the current meta sucks. at least teemo is worthless biggrin.gif

Dayum, I really hate the tank meta, need a lot of time and practice to get used to it.

yeah the tank meta sucks so much. i feel like they basically handicapped any champs that actually took skill to make the derpy champs even easier to play.

granted assassins were too good last season, but they went overboard with patches.

It's just safer to play a tank. But playing tank is absolutely boring and give you no chance of carrying the game. If you are coming back after a long break I would just try to focus on a couple of roles and champions and master one at a time.

He's using the term to insult people.

i know the difference.

but duoing with a higher elo player for the specific reason of getting to a division you couldnt reach otherwise is also boosting. if you dont like calling it boosting, we can call it something else. sorry if im not using the proper websters league of legends dictionary terms


anyways, im of the opinion that solo queue should be solo and duos shouldnt even be allowed. kinda defeats the purpose of solo que....

I dont mind players duoqueuing. Especially now when they made this "within 1 Tier duoque". Ofc theres still huge skillcap difference in Diamond 1 vs plat V. But its okay for me if they wish to play that. In low skill elo (bronze->gold) the skill difference is minimal between divisions inside same tier.

When you duo with "higher elo" player the system calculates a new MMR for your duo. Higher elo player plays vs lower personal MMR people than himself but the lower elo player ends up playing vs higher personal MMR players. So its aint any easier to win a game in that scenario versus soloque. I still prefer to go solo than duo with a friend in ranked soloQ.

Tell your midlaner to start learning new champions that fits your teamcomp/meta or ditch him and get new one. thumb.gif
