Protips for Ranked?
 
So I'm new to ranked games and just had a few solo queues and i gotta say it was horrible experience. First game everyone (including me) was just doing horrible and the other 2 had WW who liked to feed...
So can anyone share some protips with me so i can succeed in ranked games? Are there any secrets that i should know of?

Last hit and buy wards.

And of course, don't die.

use carrys, duoqueue with someone who can queue so you can support him
buy wards
dont be too confident
dont let your teammates be confident

-pick kass to win-

minion kills
most important part of the game imo
if ur talking about solo que, it comes down to luck
but farming minions helps

Play as if it is 1v5.
Do everything yourself.

Don't stay in the same lane......

Constantly gank. The lower ELO you are, the fewer wards there are and the more possibility of your gank success

Either 1. push your lane fast, down the tower, make it harder for opponent to last hit, or 2. Deny your opponent

3. Play someone with mobility, escapes, or lane dominance. Eg: Tristana, Nidalee, Shaco, Warwick, Udyr, Urgot.

4. Learn the respawn times of the jungle. Tell your teammates when the dragon/baron will be up again. Direct them to there with pings or phrases.

5. Learn to jungle VERY efficiently. Just about everyone can play a solo lane, but few can support well or jungle well. You have to make sure your team has a good jungler.. ask if anyone wants to jungle.. if not, jungle yourself if you are proficient at it.

not exactly true, my games at 1900 barely have any wards so i have to buy wards using a carry, support, tank or anything

well.. at lower ELO, its even fewer D:. Or they are often overabundant/misplaced wards

But you have to admit, ganking is a lot more effective at lower ELOs.

Also learn to play something like Tank/Carry AD/AP /Support/Jungler

If someone takes the character you want to play, always have a fall back plan in mind. Definitely learn a jungler; if no one else does it, do it yourself.

Learning Jungle is only good for Duo Q. If you are solo Qing and you want to win I suggest playing carry, Tanky DPS or Active roles.

Carry - Mazlahar, Corki, Anivia, Sion
All strong, can carry your team easily

Tanky DPS - Jarvin Renekton

Active Roles - Blitz, Poppy

Duo queue with someone you trust with.
If you know you're awesome at playing tanks and initiating, stick with heroes that do just that and have backups.

For when I play ranked, I usually go tanky DPS or tanks. I can lane or jungle with tanks or tanky dps. I can also play caster as back up. I know I'm not the greatest at AD carries so I usually avoid that role. My partner on the other hand is awesome at playing alot of different carries so that actually fills my weakness and we have two core components of the team covered. Also, if you duo queue, one of you MUST absolutely get a solo lane.

As for carries, I would add Kass +Urgot + Akali to Minuss' list and Irelia + Ryze to Tanky DPS.
And to me, usually the better junglers are Noc + Udyr + Rammus + Shaco + Nunu(doesn't have good endgame though)

Also, protip: Please don't rush stupid items like Thornmail or Lichbane. It's just that bad.

Top Tier Junglers right now:
Nunu, Nocturne, Olaf, Trundle, Amumu

These are top tier in Tournament play but they also are very good for solo-q

Shaco is very weak because he is easily countered and is useless for team fights other then JIB.

GodofFaith 04-08-2011 03:25 PM

AD or AP Teemo great map control
AP Karths if you missing dmg his pretty good to weaken a team
AP Sion pretty good to knock 50% of the hp
Poppy anti-carry *hate him so much if his good*

If he's new to ranked, Shaco would be a great choice because Shaco shits on baddies.

Ashee 04-08-2011 10:50 PM

as for low elo junglers who dominate: akali, yi, olaf , ww

n00bE 04-08-2011 11:41 PM

Just played another ranked and we were doing fine then someone called our teemo a feeder then he just intentionally fed afterwards and stayed out of team fights until we were all dead then stood in the middle of all of them ;_;

Minuss 04-09-2011 09:06 AM
