I would really like to learn how to play and understand the game better. I like using ranged champs like Caitlyn, Tristana, Teemo, but I would also like to learn how to play any type of character. I would like to learn how to build them and any other strategies and tips.

Hello. I just started playing LoL recently. I am new to MOBAs. I recently hit level 30 and am having a hard time with ranked games. I would like to improve my last hitting, as I ADC often. I would like to learn to carry as a tank (so I can try to carry my teams in my 1k elo games). Also I would like to learn the general timings and meta-strats in LoL. Like, when should your team kill dragon for the first time? When should you start roaming? What are the best ward locations? Etc.
Thanks!

I'd like to learn about everything (and I'd gladly gobble up any tips you throw my way)! My "mains" are currently Veigar and Sona. I want to learn how to prevent myself from being ganked (as much as possible, anyway ಠ_ಠ) since they're all squishy... which brings me to the next point. I want to familiarize myself with the entire map/environment (ex. possible escape routes, gank locations... etc.) and maybe learn to play a melee assassin/stealth champion (Wukong, maybe?) at the same time. I've read up on warding but how to do it efficiently is something I need to work on.If we have time, I honestly wouldn't mind learning about junglers and tanks.

I'm also very interested in mastering Ezreal (... but currently broke. Will get him once I hit 7000 IP again) and Teemo.

I think I got most of the basics down, and am getting to the point where I need to do more PvP. I'm just not that experienced with it, so i usually end up not doing so well. Hopefully someone, or a few others can get in a group with me and help me practice playing against other people in a more friendly environment (I hate flamers, I know you can ignore them, but I still hate it)

I actively play HoN and started playing this as well cause friends play this. When I first played this game I didn't like but I getting a better hang of the game. The big picture for me is that I need to figure how jungle. The hero that I play most is alistar. I really like him and he is fun to play. I just need overall help with some other basics, so i can figure out the proper items to buy.

PROFESSOR APPLICATION:

How long have you been playing LoL or MOBA's in general (if other MOBA's please list): 1 year on this coming Tuesday (November 13th).

What champions do you excel with?
Vlad (top) and Jax. I like to think I'm getting better with champs like Irelia and Wukong, but haven't played much of either of those.

What's your favorite champion role to play (carry, support, tank, mage, etc.)?
Tanky DPS (top lane champions)

How many hours of LoL do you play a week?
Depends on if I can play with people I know, if I am not solo q'ing, then around 15-20, if I have to solo, then around 3-4.

Be honest, how good are you at last hitting and lane control?
I like to think I am not bad, I don't usually get outfarmed in games, but it happens.. I can usually get ~120-140 in 20 min.
As for lane control, it is definitely an area for personal improvement. I usually excel late-game, but tend to get outplayed early. (If anyone is able to help with this it would be greatly appreciated!)

What other games do you enjoy?
World of Tanks, Guild Wars 2, and have recently began playing Smite. (Thanks to Dyrus/Chaox.. :P)

Have you ever mentored someone before?
Not through this system, but have taught my girlfriend and one of my friend's girlfriend.

Have you ever been mentored before?
Very slightly through this system, but the person who got me into the game has taught me a lot about various aspects of the game, and I have seen him mentor others as well.

How many years ago were you born?
20. 21 in ~ 1.5 months.

The main champion i play is warwick i would like some tips on what i can do to improve as warwick and jungling is something i wouldn't mind to learn. Last hitting is a big issue for me for im allways one of the last to hit 18 and general knowledge over all would be nice.

I'm willing to help a few people out, if you catch me while I'm on. I wonder how long the commitment lasted.
