TF takes time to learn but if you get the hang of him is is good but trying jungling if you can last hit good or go in to a 1v1 match with a friend and learn ow to cs with your chasen champ

It sounds like you're spamming your spells to get last hits; while on Annie, that's actually not a problem (since your Q refunds mana if you get a kill), try to learn to last hit with auto-attacks. It will be harder, but just take some time to practice.

PPS i have been thinking about trundle is he good?
Trundle is a good jungle, though I actually find that he needs blue more than WW. You can try Udyr; he's blue reliant for the first run through the jungle, but after that you'll be fine.

I'm starting to love jungle shyvana. She never needs blue, never needs to leave the jungle after getting wriggles, and does great damage. If only her ganks were a little better.

I feel like unless I have a badge I'm going to get talked down to here.

And believe me, I've see the "high elo" comp. "Ok guys, ranged DPS and support go bot lane, jungle udyr/trundle/lee/yorick/etc, put rumble solo top, and let the mage run mid". I just feel like the tankiest teams win. This is why all I ever see anymore is the atmogs build.

"Heh... look at that... a corki with a warmogs and an atmas next to a corki and an atmas".

Ye can'nae deny the fact that the tankier ye are in a team-fight, the longer ye live. It's basic math.

My issue is simply this: In yer oh so high and mighty 1800s area, is the same low-blowing cheap **** I see here in the 1400s still around? If I have to lane against another soraka graves combo, I may literally put a crystal arrow to me chin and fire.

To start off, I'm a beginner, but this situation came up in a recent pub game, and I wasn't sure what to do. I was playing Amumu (sole tank for team) and was at level 8, it's mid/early-game and nothing was going on at the time. Top and bot towers were still above half health. My teammates were either jungling or farming at mid/bot tower. I decide to go top tower since I saw minion wave creeping into our tower. Janna on enemy team meets me up at top tower short time later. All of a sudden bot tower is 4v4 and enemy team is pushing and winning team fight. Should I have left my lane to help bot? I had teleport and ult off cooldown so it could've made a difference, but there was a good chance we'd lose top tower.

The longer you live in a fight doesn't necessary mean you will be the victor.

1. The money that you spend in tanking can be used on buying damage, your example with atmorg corki and atma corki cannot be used to prove as atma corki is at least 3000 cash behind on the enemy, if he has a bloodthirster, it is most likely that he will win because he lifesteals while atmorg corki doesn't have lifesteal.

The reason for people to build tanky is because dead people doesn't do damage. In my ELO, all of the ranged AD are basically building pure glass cannon, and relying the team to protect them. They will not build any thing like banshee or Qss unless it is really needed (example, Veigar on enemy team). Tanky team allows you to make mistake, but it doesn't outplay a team that builds damage if they are both equal on gold.

Edit: Graves + Soraka combo? Put a MF and Janna/ Sona/ Alistar, that is enough to shut them down.

Ask yourself few questions

1. Will it be worthwhile for you to teleport down there? (Yes --> go to Q2, No --> Q3)
2. Will you make a differences and turn that fight at least to a positive trade? If it is yes, DO IT, if it is no, Q4)
3. Are they going to lose even if you help? (Obvious answer here, Yes -> don't worry, No -> Consider helping)
4. Will the trade establish you more advantage? (Example: take another turret and dragon) Yes -> go teleport down there, No -> don't worry about it.
