I'm not a high ELO player, but AFAIK high ELO games are all about the early-mid push nowadays. I've seen TF, Trynd, Taric, Soraka, Sivir, Gangplank, and Nunu listed as top and high tier characters so far.

I'm not high elo (as of the last list anyway) but I group with several high elo players and thus get matched into high elo games very commonly. You pretty much got it right except for Nunu, though he is probably decent. Taric is also hit-or-miss. Also add Corki and probably Ashe to the list. There's a few others with potential to be top tiers I think (Annie, Anivia, Nasus, maybe a few others) but they are debatable.

Some making these threads. We don't have the data to calculate tiers, it's all theory craft and opinions.

Nunu is the best tank in game right now.

In general, in high ELO games, the best champions are those who have some combination of Area of Effect, Crowd Control, and Map Influence, particularly when these are combined. Examples include Ashe, who has a limitless range AOE Stun/slow (Crystal Arrow) and an AOE slow (Volley). Cardmaster is another good example, as he has a global Slow/reveal, an AOE Stun, and a global teleport.

In general, the following are very acceptable high ELO characters (I believe, I can't remember the exact list verbatim, so this is probably incomplete): Ashe, Teemo, Twisted Fate, Corki, Nunu, Amumu, Nasus, Cho'Gath, Soraka, Taric.

where would i find the ELO of my own account and of others? i know i saw a list posted by Pendragon awhile ago though is it still unofficial, or is there a place i can go to check periodically...

And, is Kassadin not part of this high tier at all? I'm sad, he's my fav.
