(Summary At Bottom)

Hello everyone out there! I've been playing this game on and off for about a year now. Last season I got high rating in silver (almost gold I believe) but was just a little shy of it. This season I came back and started doing PvP again. Currently my "unranked" rating is 1100 something. I have 3 wins and 2 losses. One of the losses was me getting kicked from the game due to internet issues, but it was still a loss, no doubt.

I know that getting a higher elo, whether it's 1500 or 2500, is both luck and skill. My goal is to get 1500 elo. Just so I can get gold, like a good boy. I have a few questions and would greatly appreciate if someone pro out there, or at least 1500+ elo themselves, can help me out.

My main lanes are either top or mid, but sometimes I go bottom lane. I enjoy all roles except jungler, since they changed it and I started to dislike it. Now I read that support isn't the best role to have, especially at lower elo, since it makes getting out of there harder. From what I have heard, either jungler or mid is the way to go.

Here are the champions that I own, play often, and have proper runes/masteries for:

Darius/Olaf/Trynd/Xin/Morg/Kat/Mord/Karth/Garen/Yi/Teemo/Graves/Alistar/Taric/Kayle

I own about 40 champions though, but those I'm decent with. The ones I'm very good with though are very limited. It seems I'm only doing well nowadays with Darius, Morgana, and Graves. Of the champions I listed above, what roles and which ones should I try to play and master in ranked to move up in elo?

Summary:

What are good champions for solo top, mid, and bottom lane for climbing up in elo ranking? I play Darius, Xin, Trynd, Morgana, Katarina, Graves, and Taric very well. What other champions would you suggest and what can I do? I want to get to 1500 elo. Last season I was close but didn't make it. This season I'm new to Ranked again and don't have an official rating (only five games). Please and thank you!

Hi Zygrazor. Not claiming to be pro or anything, but i did get to 1500 elo pretty easily this season mainly playing Ezreal AD, Lee Sin Jungle, and Olaf Top. Lee and Ez are both strong champs with easy escapes (prob the most important thing), and Olaf is op cause you can just stack hp, ult/ghost and then wreck whoever you want. Think the main thing is to specialise a champ at every role, so even if you get counterpicked/someone takes your lane, you will be sweeet. Hope this helped

Thank you so much sir!

I've been playing Morgana and Katarina a lot in middle lane recently, and am doing extremely well with them. I'll probably pick up and try Olaf out. I bought him but haven't used him much.

Another question to anyone reading this:

What are three powerful top lane and middle lane champions I should learn to play properly? Besides Olaf (top) and Katarina (middle) of course.

When you play mid play a champion that can push the lane at level 6 and gank another lane, like morgana katarina, even panth is good because ad bruisers are really good mid. Also make sure to get as much cs as you can get, if you can cs and harass and push effectively, you will skyrocket in elo.

Top 3 top and mid champs : Jax, Riven, Darius. Katarina, Chogath, Morgana or Pantheon (Morgana isnt that good anymore because everyone stacks HP)

I know im not 1500 ELO but make sure you farm, ive begun to realise that games arent won by diving people unecessarily for a kill when you can clear the wave and get 120g

one of the problems Zyg is that you are playing no skill champs like kat and you will be easily countered by the time you reach 13 or 1400

Simplest answer is the ones you are good at. Make sure you can play ALL roles above average. Some champs have an advantage (Say Katarina, over Brand) my friend wrecks as Brand. Your BEST champs will always be your go to.

I have several champs I do well at( in my prefferred role, Jungler) and then at least 1 in the other roles. All of these champs I understand the mechanics for and can do well at.

Your BEST will always do better than the flavour of the month club in the long run (which is what ELO is. It is NOT an instant gratification system)

I appreciate everyone's answers, tips, advice, and help. I guess what I need to do is write down the champions I really like and am good at, and just play with them and practice. Can someone tell me what they think of the following list? Any of these bad champions or I could use a better replacement for them? These are champions that at one point or another I played a lot and was average/good with.

Top = Darius, Xin, Trynd, Garen
Mid = Morgana, Katarina, Kassadin
Bot = Graves (adc), Taric, (supp), Alistar (supp)

I havent read the above posts but I thought I would contribute my own opinion and how I achieved 1500 S3, while I didnt S2.

Champions for anything doesnt really matter, it is how WELL you play the champion. A lot of players pick Malphite/Amumu/Shen/Blitzcrank/Khazix immediately off the bat if its not ban, but the problem is.. they have no idea how to use them! I suggest you stick to ONE or TWO champion, and play them to climb the elo ladder. My mindset when I play ranked is that "I will carry the game and make comebacks even if I lose lane, I want to test how great my skills are in lane, and improve as much as possible." Sure you will lose sometimes, if your team feeds and trolls, but its inevitable. It happens and you just have to accept it. I climbed 100 elo in about a day fom 1400 to 1500, and if I can do it, you can too. I decided I would make kayle my go -to champion, even if I never played her, and as more games I have with her, the more aggresive I became. My mindset never changed though.
