    Its an obvious side effect of the esports "top down balance" mindset.

  • DutchM

    10:06 also because in this elo he is not that hard. You q, e, kill, repeat. His q is easy to dodge, but people suck at dodging shit so he ends up killing your adc until he is fed enough to one shot your entire team with just his e and ult.

  • DutchM

    eh the thing with teemo top lane doesnt have a lot to do with his shrooms. As a silver player I can tell you that half of the players on the enemy team will be getting sweepers if you pick teemo. It's more that people have trouble facing his kite and his vision control allows him to access the enemy back line by walking around the enemy team. He also scales well into the late game, which is always good in my elo.

  • Foudzing

    Best picks to climb low ELO: Top: Take simple lane bully bruiser (Yorick, Garen, Darius, Volibear, Olaf, Trundle, Udyr) or huge mid/late game monsters (Nasus, Dr. Mundo, Jax) Jungle: Take strong early game bruiser, if possible with easy ganks : Amumu, Rammus, Trundle, Udyr, Olaf, Vi Mid: take mages with strong and easy to land allin potential, like you hit your CC you can hit everything easy (Annie, Malz, Viegar, Ahri, lux, annivia, malph full AP) Adc: Take MF or Jinx depending on how you want to play the game (more early or more late), any other choice is much harder. Supp take tanky CC machine with easy combos (Nautilus, Leona, Blitz) or enchanter with few skillshots (Nami, Janna, Sona,Yummi)

    Ah, yes, Yasuo, the "skill-based champion" who gets a free shield every 5 seconds so he can't be poked, no resource to manage, unlimited dashes, double crit chance, a 2-item power spike that would make a Vayne main ragequit if he hit it first, and an ultimate that can be absolutely devastating because a braindead Yasuo was at least half awake, and could press R after any number of supports knocked up multiple enemy team members at the same time. Yeah, he's melee range, but Yasuo is not that hard to play. Just watch all the salty Yasuo mains who reply in the comments like, "He only has 2 damaging abilities and wind wall takes skill. You're just jealous that you got outplayed." When really all these people did was abuse the idiots bot lane who have zero map awareness, and couldn't get a kill on the enemy laner until they got to their 2-item, 100% crit chance power spike, and a gank.

  • SALZ

    elwynn forset music omfg

  • 哈哈哈哈

    why they dominate in low elo? easy, because they have fuking BULLSHIT skill kit thats why.

  • Bozocow

    I think Pyke does well because support players that play better than their elo but are hardstuck finally pick up Pyke so they can start carrying from the support position.

  • Maximum

    Talon ins't good at low elo, because he's good at getting your teammates ahead, but since your teammates are bad at closing the game if you don't 1v9 you will end up getting into his bad late game which is pretty much a losing game.

  • SucculentHS

    “Uses pro guides” proceeds to put Aatrox Q on a extended cooldown and waste E for no reason


      Tbf if it had a reason it wouldn't have been a waste, technically.

    My secret to get out of silver Rammus top, like bruh all low elo top laners do is fight, why dont pick the guy they cant just trade with all the time. Also learns you to only fight with cooldowns and not to extend fights too long as when W is over on Rammus, your trade should be over.

  • Not Me

    Please Tell me. Last 20 games, i noted them, All lanes inted. Like 0-4, 0-3, 0-6, 0-2. How? Tell me, how can I do something. I carried 7 games. I’ve never been more than play, just because everyone is dumbfuck retarded shits.

    Knowing what lane priority is shouldn't change a matchup where you still don't get lane priority. I don't see why it's that important.

    Even how mechanically easy a champion is, people don’t know how to aim and use. Especially the amumu I had in my game and still played like trash.

    What is the hero on 5:39 , cant understand what he is saying

  • Zaxaroplastis

    The game is greatly unbalanced by nature and i am not talking about items or champios(that are also unbalanced),but also because some games require quite a lot of knowledge on specific concepts. For example i am playing proxy singed.Singed is a simple champion,he has a simple kit and so on.Proxy is a really specific strategy where you "break the rules" of a lane requiring attention from the enemy team in a whole and focusing on getting as far front as possible,while you are getting the enemy team back for the time they wasting to get your strategy off.That's a weird trading of time and experience rather than damage and gold,your focus on proxing is making your opponents loose time and experience and just your opponents laner to loose gold(from lowering his farming due to turret push).This strategy is stupid and requires knowledge from both the proxy player,his teammates and the opponents to deal with or to even make it work.Since lol has failed at controlling these strategies the game is unbalanced by how much knowledge around really specific strategy every player has on top of the general knowledge of the game.Generally league of legend is by nature a broken game that makes up this "broken" thing by how well is designed in other areas.

    • Shinji

      Zaxaroplastis Sorry but I don't really agree with your examples, even if your concern is legitimate. There was counterplay to funneling (what you Cal support jungle) and proxying in every season. Maybe not in low elo, but there's a reason such strategies were only used a handful of times at the pro level and never became ubiquitous.

    • Zaxaroplastis

      @Shinji I failed explaining what i wanted but the problem i wanted to address is how the game at this points runs on an old but reasonable idea(how exp work,gold etc.). The thing os that is so basic that you can easily exploit with strategies that will break the base of the game.Do you remember the support jungle?That thing had no counterplay,there was no way you could deal with it.It was not fun to play against,it wasn't even fun playing and it was breaking the game.Proxy season 6,same thing.Some champions could triple proxy get level 12 meanwhile everyone else was 7-9.Those things are strategies that are exploiting so well the core mechanics of the game that there are no counters to that,even riot hates them but can't figure out a way to prevent them.

    • Shinji

      Zaxaroplastis What you're referring to as "unbalanced" and "Broken" is simply depth for the game system strategy- wise. League is not a 1v1 fighting game, having strategies that depend mostly on game knowledge rather than champion mechanics is not "unbalanced/broken", it's an element of as much if not more value than the mechanics part.

    How this help if my team have 3 players with 3 14

  • phunkym8

    god i hate fucking percent counters. the only thing that couns in lol is buying the right shit, not being retarded and outplaying your opponent. just because data aggregator sites say a champions has an average of 0,7% better winrate than the champ youre playing its an autoloss. same with hashinshin that compares level 4 life regeneration of champs and calls them op based on that.

    • Shinji

      phunkym8 Found the silver shitter. Though I agree Hashinshin is a whiny bitch.

  • Kind Old Raven
    Kind Old Raven

    I notice another trend people love to ignore: sometimes... you're in the elo where you belong. I know people in LoL, CSGO, OW etc who claim they should be in the top 3 of ranked divisions (and they're dead serious about it too) but who are stuck in the lowest 3 rankings and have been for years. It's okay to be ambitious, it's great that we try to improve and get better... but it's also very important to do a reality check every now and then. If you've been bronze since the launch of league, despite 1000s of hours: it's not going to happen for you. Enjoy the game as it is, still try and get better, but ffs stop blaming everyone but yourself for failing... that's probably the main reason you haven't moved at all. And... every rank needs players... new players don't keep flowing in like they used to so... yeah. Not all players can share the top rank, that's not how it works. Just like it's impossible for everyone who plays a shooter to have a 3+ K/D ratio. That's just not how the numbers work. For some reason there's always lots of players who do think it's possible for everyone to share a GM rank in Overwatch for instance. Or a top 500 spot. Doesn't work like that guys.

    I think you missed the biggest point of all of these champs; top lane: strong 1v1 duelist and split pushers, every other lane reliable CC with high impact ult that can pick an out of position player.

    It’s true even if you play the champion very well if your team is focused on going mid it’s hard to win, on the other hand if you take a champion that melts down towers like master you or vi it’s easy to win no matter what your team is doing
