Yeah that's a good point. If you're gonna test the waters now is a good time to do it.

I take a viewpoint that is somewhat different from most people, I guess. Once I hit 30, I stopped playing Normals all together. I don't see a point in playing the same game but without a rating. If I need to learn the mechanics of a champion (bought Leona, need to learn her skill ranges and stuff), I go bots. But other than bots and Customs, I only play Ranked.

If you only play Ranked 'when you feel ready for it', is your elo a true display of your skill? Your elo will get more and more accurate the more games you play Ranked in.

Yes. I feel very confidant with about 6 characters. I will play ranked with them. I feel adequate with another 20-30, I play normal with them. How can ELO really show your skill level when you are playing champions that you have vastly different experience with?

Because my ELO shows on the whole how good I am at the game of LoL. It means that if I play with 9 other people of approximately the same rating, both teams will have an even match.
Besides, I would never be remotely comfortable entering a game of LoL (ranked or otherwise) where I wasn't prepared to play at least ~20 characters. Otherwise I might have to counterpick myself if 3 of my best characters are banned, 2 are in lanes that are full, and the last is hard-countered by my lane opponent.

I think a lot of people (myself included) worried about picking and counterpicking, and worrying about team composition instead of just playing a champ I knew I can do well with. Part of the reason my elo is as low as it is as I would worry about that. I'm sure all of you have done, "OMG Morg is mid, alright who counters her?"lolking.net...OK yeah! I got Talon! No idea how to play him! WOOOO! DEFEAT.
