I played through a lot of the early levels against bots, as I was trying to try out different champions and get a feel for the game.
Lately I took some advice and settled in with Champions I'm good with (Ashe, Varus but I still need to unlock him) and can hold my own in Normal PvPbut definitely have a lot of room to grow. I'd also like to lern how to use other types of champions, as if Ashe and Jax are taken I'm probably going to get whalloped.

I'm decent at using Ashe to carry a lane and am decent at last-hitting but poor at Ganking or preventing enemy Champions from escaping in general. As I tend to focus on farming, I feel very uncomfortable if I take spells other than Heal + Clarity (unless I'm using a champ with no mana like Morde, then I usually take Ignite, Ghost or Flash)

I was going to just post a thread for "Summoner's Rift 101" but I'm rather glad I found this thread first haha so I thought I'd give mentoring a shot, if you're willing to have me.

How long have you been playing LoL or MOBA's in general (if other MOBA's please list): About 3 years (includes DotA, LotR Guardians of Middle Earth, Smite, and Halo Wars)

What champions do you excel with? Mostly sustained DPS (AD Carries, bruiser jungles), as well as midlane mages and supports, both popular and unconventional.

What's your favorite champion role to play (carry, support, tank, mage, etc.)? Mostly AD Carry or support.

How many hours of LoL do you play a week? Anywhere between 30-40 hours on a busy week. Many a night I've stayed up queueing for next game haha

Be honest, how good are you at last hitting and lane control? I have good last hitting control, as well as knowledge of when to push or pull the lane, and can exert dominance on a champion I'm strong against, as well as be defensive when counter picked.

What other games do you enjoy? Story based games, JRPGs, BF3, Minecraft, indie games...just catch my interest, I'm a jack of all trades.

Have you ever mentored someone before? I've tutored math ._.

Have you ever been mentored before? When I started this game at beta

How many years ago were you born? 21 years ago.

Any questions, just throw them at me in game (Swift Hikari) or on skype (swift.hikari)

I'd like to learn how to jungle with Master Yi and Rengar properly. I'm halfway through the game and I don't know how to ward properly, when to ward, when you chase and when to gank. Some survival skills and common sense would be nice too

Playing For: :A few days.

I want to learn how to get better at LoL in general, i've been facing the bots to practice but from what i've heard they arent always the best for teaching new players. I want help to learn basic strategies(and maybe more, later on) and find what role(s) I prefer to play. I am very patient when it comes to new things(Such as LoL and MOBA's in general) and appreciate any and all help for teaching this newbie how to actually play correctly. Atm I have been using Kayle(Hybrid) and really enjoying it and wonder what other champions would interest me(Atm i'm thinking of Morgana). : D

SN: DragonTamersHoe
Level:17/might be 18 by the time this gets read
Playing for: About a month, off and on.
What I need help with:
Well, some build tips would be good, but I've gotten way better with that.
I need to really work on my farming (I've taken a liking to Voli, and my farming with him is horrible)
I would also like to learn how to Jungle (I've read some guides on here, and it's easier for me to see vs read.) and just overall lane control!
I play mostly TF, Malzahar and now Volibear, sometimes Anivia. This is getting long, but I'd love to learn to play Shaco well, as I love him

Summoner Name: Belias the Ugly
Summoner Level: 21, but near a lvl up
Playing For: About a month

I need help in general with the early game, both how to farm effectively and how to lane effectively. I fail miserably at the first twenty minutes of almost every game, so by the time the laning phase is over, I'm not a threat to the enemy team. (I also get raged at almost constantly, which is disheartening.) I prefer Riven and AP Nidalee, but I'm open to learning other champs. Typically online during weekends and the occasional weeknight (NA server).

Thank you all very much for organizing something like this. I really appreciate the concept, even if I never hear back from anyone about this. It's nice to know that not every LoL player is cruel to people who aren't very good.
