FAQ:

Q: Best AD Carry?
A: Corki. Best scaling, tons of burst, and high mobility.

Q: Most fun AD carry?
A: Ezreal. (Yes he's viable and very strong)

Q: Tips for low elo?
A: Get better mechanically. Last hit. Ward. Learn when to trade with your lane opponent. Force objectives when you are ahead. Browse thread for more in depth advice.

Q: Does elo hell exist?
A: No. Everyone has their own "elo hell" that they are in and cannot get out of simply because they are not good enough to move up any higher.

Q: What do you build on X AD carry?
A: Always IE first then Phantom dancer. Wriggles first if you really are losing lane hard. Tri force is a luxury item.


Q: One more thing.. I prefer boots/3p for AD to start. Do you strictly do this, or pay attention to their carry and change up between dorans/boots in games?

Can you give me an example of a lane combo bot that I would want doran's instead of boots/3p?

A: GOOD question! Boots 3 pots is what i get 90% of the time. I will get doran's blade when I KNOW that I can easily win trades lvl 1 and not have to go back. For example, Taric/Sivir is a wonderful lane because it is a guaranteed hit for your boomerang and you will not take much damage, if any, back! Only do this when you have Sona or Soraka though as you will need the heal.

Q: Are women attracted by ELO?
A: Yes. But you must disregard them to keep it high.

Q: The origin of your summoner name?
A: I used to play FPSs like COD and BF. My last name also starts with Schell. Put the two together and bam!

Q: It is a well known fact that women find Elo attractive. However, you have also postulated that Elos need come before hoes, lest Elo be lost. Have you considered the possibility that it is actually the disregard required to gain Elo, and not the Elo itself, which makes the Elo bearer more attractive?
A: Women always want what they can't have.

From looking at your ranked stats...find a champion you are actually good at and start carrying.

Easiest way to carry a team? Used to be play a jungler, what is it these days? I hear AD bottom (but I fear having a bad support).

EDIT: For reference I do ward, quite frequently, both the enemy jungle and my own.
