I dunno.. I'm not so great with Lee Sin. Maybe I'm just not doing it right or I just need to practice more but I don't do so well with him. I've found I'm probably best at AD carry, but I still jungle most matches. I'm having fun running unconventional junglers for the hell of it. I actually ran a pretty good Karthus jungle last night, but we had 3 teammates who couldn't hold bot/mid and sucked too bad to hold their lanes, so I couldn't do too much with it.

Where does it actually state what ELO rank you are??

When you first pull up your summoner stats, it'll show your ranked ELO after 10 games. Mine is abysmally low due to trolls/ragers/quitters/baddies. Currently at like 660. :(

I'm pretty sure my elo has been degrading because I haven't played in a few weeks. Someone told me that happens. Oh well.

I got kinda bored with the game a while back. Haven't really felt like logging in for some time now.

Hilarious bug/hack with latest patch - summoner spells with 0% cooldown.

Darius is out today. He's basically Garen for Noxia. High DPS bruiser with a "omg fuck you" KSing Ultimate.

After a long hiatus I started playing League again a few days ago, mostly on my smurf. Oddly enough, I see more good players here than in ranked. Today I did something I never expected, too - got a pentakill with Irelia. It was dumb luck, I happened to surge in, immediately killed their Brand, E'd Akali and then flashed out as they all targeted me. Then immediately popped my ult (getting 2 kills with it) and surged back in, getting a kill. Then as the last guy ran, I surged once more and finished him off. It was pretty amusing to see everyone shocked at an Irelia penta, especially since we were at like 20 mins or so. I later got a triple, but nobody was nearly as impressed.

I forgot how much fun the game is. I've decided to level up my smurf so I can start ranked with a clean slate. It kinda sucks because I dumped so much money ($300-400) into my main on skins and such, but being stuck at 900-ish elo is just painful on him.

You? I'm at 720 (pulled myself up from 550 playing Mordekaiser almost exclusively). I dunno if I have you on my friend list or not, but I've played a bunch of times with Taxious. :) The worst problem with ranked is afkers/leavers/ragers/trolls purposely throwing the games. I can't even tell you how many times I've been owning my lane/jungle and then someone quits at level 5 and leaves us 4v5 for the entire game. :/

I probably have you on my 'main' account, name's Hallec. On my smurf the only friend I have is Tax. Haha. His name is Kageru, feel free to add me and look me up. I still haven't got any runes on him, though. Waiting until I can buy decent ones at 20. Still only level 14 or something. I've been playing him exclusively for the last little while, originally because I took a long hiatus and wanted to shake some rust off, but now I'm doing it because I want another crack at ranked with a clean slate.

I've seen you on it the last few days and couldn't remember who that was!

Try resending the request to 'Kageru'. I didn't get it... Or I did and ended up deleting amid a purging of random invites from people I've never said 1 word to.

Started playing again. Add 'Trydan' (yes, like the lame ass Paladin from PoP...I was on the spot for a summoner name) to your friend lists! Haven't played in almost a year (other than a few games recently) and can only play at my girlfriend's because my computer at home blew up and this shitty laptop can't run LoL well enough for me to play comfortably.
I'd like to see things from your point of view but I can't get my head that far up my ass.

I'll be on again tomorrow most likely at the earliest. Girlfriend has her week long vacation coming up Friday and I have a LOT of cleaning to do before then. Hopefully sometime over the weekend we can all get on at the same time and stomp some n00bs.

Any of you still playing regularly? Add 'Trydan' if you are.

I play this game too much! I just got into gold league last week and I think my ELO is around 1500 now.

This game has made me want to carpet bomb every primarily Spanish speaking country in the world. I'm still Bronze 3. After a very crappy placement series and getting consistently paired up with people whom I can't communicate with (and often times don't understand game mechanics), I pretty much just nose-dived in terms of elo.
