It's an awesome analysis you did there on how to improve as a LoL player, detailing the major areas that you need to master. I'll definetly take some of your advice and work on my weaker areas.

Now... I agree with you on that Elo doesn't measure players skill with a champion (point 5), but I'd like to add that it doesn't measure points 1-4 either. What it measures is your team's ability to win, nothing more.

What you are really shattering is the idea that champion skill is all that matters to be a good player.

What don't you agree with?

List it in bullet form don't say why ask me then see if we actually differ in opinion or if you're reading wrong from my intentions.

You lost me at your title, I don't believe and I don't think most people believe that "ELO is a measurement of a Players skill with a Champion." So, shattering this concept is nothing big, it is like me writing an article about shattering the concept that moon is made of cheese. I don't think many people have ever held this belief, but i am gonna shatter it anyway.


I think Elo is a an indication of your ability to win games.

Elo is measurement of probability of success, success is evaluated by your ability to play the game, your ability to be successful in the game is based on 1 of 5 major skill areas that can be further sub-divided or labeled. Ergo your ability play well has a relationship with Elo.

How is this point being missed...

You people are chosing to ignore the preface aren't you...------^
