: played a bit of ori yesterday to find out how her skills work regarding farming. Anyway. 1) yes, first half item vs Zed can be seeker's armguard (that eventually goes into Zhonias). Zhonias is overpriced and no point in rushing it first (the first half of it, seekers is fine). As for first completed item it can be {{item:3165}} (in case the enemy team's damage dealers are full AD), {{item:3174}} (in case the enemy team also has an AP damage dealer) {{item:3027}} (currently one of the best gold efficiency item for AP users) 2) you didn't answer summoner spells, but ok 3) loading screen goal is "how will I play this game" initial thoughts. For example, a jungler in the loading screen has to decide what route he will take, how will the match-ups go, what lanes he can gank and when, what lanes will the enemy jungler want to gank As a mid laner, you got to figure it out when are your power spikes vs the enemy. How should you approach the game. Is it worth the risk to stay with half hp in lane and get CS or you should go back, recall and heal up. Should you follow the enemy's roams. Should you roam yourself. Is there any lane you can even roam to help? Like, if your bot lane or the enemy bot lane is Janna Ezreal........ chances are roaming bot is stupid as they can just dis engage. Generally, vs Zed your goals should be "farm without using skills early game", "only use skills for harass, or aoe last hit on multiple targets, and defense", "do not match his roams early game", "get a pink ward and ward one of the paths from mid to bot lane". 4) early game roles are simple. For Zed it would be "kill that bitch" or "roam". And for you it would be "farm without getting harassed" Normally you won't be able to win lane vs an equally skilled Zed with such a late game champion as Oriana. 5) for late game, your goal is to "stay in position", as a squshy mage, you can't afford to be on the front lines with Oriana. "place ball for zoning" and in case their carries don't respect that zone, R W E. "Delivery system" is nice. However, don't get over attached to it. You should easily get a 1-2 man ultimate without "delivery". 6) the reason you max your Q is not because "it does more damage". Its because it allows you to move the ball more often and in better positions, creating different zones. Which you will then try to every now and then QW the enemy in lane. As far as damage does W is higher. So, the reason you max Q is the ability to re position your ball 7) QWE, with Q max first strategy, requires Oriana to be level 9 ( 5 points Q, 2 points W, 1 point E) for you to clear caster minions in 1 hit. That's your "wave clear". And you don't get it until lv9. With W max first you get it at lv 7-8, however its not worth losing the "mobility" of your ball for it. 8) Why you clear waves. What I meant was, why are you going to use your wave clear combo. The answer is: in case the enemy is not in lane, you want to hard push his wave so that he loses Exp and Gold to the turret. As well as taking turret damage. So, lets say Zed goes bot. As a lv 6-9 Oriana you can't follow that. So, you just make sure he loses at least 1 wave of farm and then you can auto attack his turret or roam top if possible. Or, if Zed is still bot and your bot lane survived, go bot to help. The other reason you want to use your skills to clear/push waves is to force the enemy stay in lane and because its harder to CS under tower. The other reason is to force the enemy to CS under tower (you can't really do this with Oriana vs Zed). However, since your "wave clear combo" doesn't become active till level 9. You need to be very careful when you use your skills for wave clear, and not waste your mana. Most farming comes from auto attacks. 9) And as far as harass question goes. Every time your Q AND W are off cooldown, you should look for an opportunity to use QW+aa (for thunderlords) on Zed. This means you will probably have to move the ball around the lane for a few times before you finally do your QW thingy. Yes, Zed wins lane vs Oriana normally. But while farming you should always try to poke vs melees. In Oriana's case, with your skills as they are quite useless for farming in early game. So, if you want to play her. You will have to step up your farming by auto attacks game. As Oriana isn't as nice as my Morgana to give you a free pass to that. Also, you need to learn your wave clear combo (the optimal way to clear waves asap) as a laner that has to farm (top, mid; adc do mostly by auto attacks so whatever). And your harass combos. With a jungler you need to learn how to kite camps around. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3c5b4w0rC4 watch all that. And then try to figure out how much of it you are doing vs how much it says in the video. ps, the video regarding masteries is obviously not updated or some items since roa right now is really strong
Thanks! ( heh, i do say "thanks" a lot , don't I ? ) For Q , my point wasn't "It deals more damage" , it was that it's the most used skill, as you use it to position your ball, and another nice thing about it is that it deals a lot of damage. I used to max my W , so I know which has the highest damage. As for the other things, I appreciate the time you spent into this. Really.

: My point about mechanically intense champions is that you might find learning more difficult. If you focusing on increasing your ability to cs, you don't want to fight with your champion controls making him do what you intend. You want to just do it. Dividing your attention into two separate fields at one time might be quite difficult task at hand. Which might stagnate your progress. I have no intention to sound condescending. Honestly. While I would not advice playing garen or volibear, pick like Renekton or Diana are great because while not being too complex they do offer play-making potential to keep you interested. Sure, ultimate choice is yours, but I, and many other people would advice you to try a bit simplier to accelerate your learning process. At the end of the day we are in same boat. I managed to climb out of bronze but now figuring my ways to climb out of high silver. And frankly it's not that difficult when you **put your mind** to it.
I just realised you're so right. I picked Mordekaiser for a few matches now and I noticed a big change in how I farm. Same goes for other close ranged champs. I've been playing these complicated champs that had me focus just on the enemy. I might cosider changing my mains, temporarily , until I get out of bronze. Thank you!
: yada yada yada _wanna be free from bronze_? {{champion:157}} play him, trust me
Haha. Free ELO champs. Didn't think about that.
: >my excuse for the builds is that that is normal, not ranked That's not what happened either, because: **I just looked at ranked games.** In fact, unless I use an external site, such as op.gg or lolking, I can, technically, only look at your ranked history.
Well, as I said, I started getting insane from this. I'm just going to put my pc in a box for a few weeks to make sure I don't ACTUALLY become mentally ill.
kurnubego (EUNE)
: I think you could really try picking up some less mechanically intense champions (which are fun) with strong laning phase and which are easy to farm up with. Like... Renekton. Anyway, it seems you really need to study more theory behind the game to grasp it better and be able to draw correct conclusions on your own about the game and how it should flow. While I do understand that you watch pro plays, umm... they are not very educational most of the time. But I can recommend some channels which are: **SoloRenektonOnly** - extremely vocal about laning phase. How to control waves. When to engage in trades. When to all in. And so on. From him I learned how to freeze lane at tower ;D when to tele back to base without losing much an so. As a result, if I don't get hard ganked and playing a familiar champion I never lose lane. No matter the match up. **HuzzyGames** - more about macro decisions so to say. Is vocal about what objective should be taken. Also talks about team comps, how they work, what build paths should be taken and so on. Check them out. I'm sure you'll learn something valuable. And try not just repeat it in your own head, but understand the reasons behind it.
Thanks for helping me out! Oh, I just made myself look stupid with that title, didn't I? Last season I did't play ranked just because I considered it too serious for me and ended in silver. ( Made me feel a lil bit better ) . I didn't choose those champs ( oh well, I did ) , but I play that kind of thing since forever. ( this will sound stupid,but ) I don't know how to do anything else in lol. These are the type of champs I can play, and that's that. Sure, I'm open to new things, but your message sounded like "uh, bronzer, that's too hard for you" , even if you said it in a super nice way, with a "just trying to help you , bro " voice , the message is still the same. I want to believe that the problems are beyond the champs I play. I just don't feel alright going garen or riven.Even if I'm stuck in bronze right now, it doesn't mean I don't know anything at all about this game.Even with my problems ( runes and warding stuff ) I still have a thing I know in this game. And that is how to play this clockwork machines ( oh well, or so I think.. ). Nevertheless, thank you for your comment. Sorry if I sounded like an angry chimpanzee crying, but these mechanically intense champs are what I am. Don't think I started with them. I climbed a ladder. I started with easier champs. But this is what I am now. I'm able to change my build, change my playstyle, my social attitude, but to changing Orianna, I'm not that open. Thank you ( for the third time ) for reading my entire post. I have people here that didn't see "I don't try not to blame myself" and "I never used to blame my team" but see "I lose because of my team".

: Ah. I'm sorry I gave that impresion. I was typing more of it but my internet takes half an hour to load a page. Anyways. The idea in my message was that I accept criticism. Tbh, I really appreciate that you're taking your time to answer. I know I'm lacking some knowledge here and there, but ( ah , another excuse coming up ) I don't play as seriously as I used to. I started to get dumber because of ( oh my god, I'm blaming again! ) all the " stfu "s I've been getting. I just stopped caring if the enemy builds ap or ad , or if I just mess with some bad items on champs. It was just until yesterday when I realised it's not cool anymore. It's not fun anymore. I try my best and bot feeds. Ok, maybe bot has a bad day. Let's not blame them. It's just a game. Oh here comes enemy adc. Oh here it kills me. Oh here they come. " noob " " stfu polish kid i fuk ur mom u stupid " I used to play more seriously. Maybe I'm just becoming crazy or something, but I'm sick of the toxic part of the comunity. To conclude, my excuse for the builds is that that is normal, not ranked, and I take it less seriously ( I shouldn't ) and k/d ratio ... Same thing. For the runes I don't have an excuse, lol. Need to buy some now.
And as for my mains, I know my stuff for them. The main idea of this post was just for ranked. Lately I've been treating normal matches too arrogantly. I pick randoms and build crap. That's how it is. To get more info about me , so you can have a better impression ( more clear impression ) ,check the other replies on this post, too.
: >I start building sh*t. No, you don't. Because, I checked for that, and you built these items FROM THE BEGINNING. But again, your first reaction to someone giving you solid advice: _"No no no no no no, its not me, its my team, thank you very much but I'm not doing anything wrong. I am the sole unifying factor in all my games, but its not me, no no no."_ And that mindset exactly, is why you won't climb.

Haha, you watched my history. :)) I played with friends lately and when it's an obvious loss and I get mad ( happens ) I start building sh*t.

In that one with Taric my adc lost connection and, again, we kept losing teamfights ( why did we get into them, anyway ) . And that's my story. Note : obvious loss 18 kills vs 40 kills

: Ok then. Questions: What summoners you take on Oriana when your mid enemy is: 1) {{champion:238}} 2) {{champion:245}} 3) {{champion:127}} 4) {{champion:117}} 5) {{champion:131}} 6) {{champion:42}} 7) {{champion:90}} 8) {{champion:7}} 9) {{champion:4}} 10) {{champion:157}} What is your first full item in all the match ups above? What is your first half an item in all the match ups above? What is your goal during the loading screen when you see them? What is your role in early game for these match-ups? What is your role in late game for these match-ups? What is your skill order? What is your wave clear combo? When do you use your wave clear combo? and for what reason? How often you try to hurt/harass/trade with the enemy in each match-up? Just a few questions. And they don't even involve the enemy jungler or your other heroes :) edit tip: there are multiple good answers and multiple bad answers to all questions above. If you use just one of the good ones, you get a pass ;)
I'm on my phone now, I'll give the long answer tomorrow. The thing about each one of them is considering their attributes ( pokes hard, harrasses a lot, skills , starting stats ). I'll answer zed for now, as it's a very common matchup. Orianna is very strong ,no, the BALL is very strong. She's squishy and playing against zed is , obiously , a hard lane. The first items for zed is the white thingy armour ( can't recall the name ) and rush seekers armguard as it has ap and armour. Later you build into zhonya's as it gives you the amazig active which counters zed's ult , but also armour and a ton of ap. That's for a skilled zed player. In bronze I usually end up getting a morello for orianna first, and win my lane. But I'll go on with my answer for a skilled zed. Goal on the loading screen...? Don't really get that one. Other than looking up their summoner spells and keystones and finding out which goes where and what the jungler will first do I don't know what else. In early you need to make sure not to give him kills and dodge his shuriken. Stay back and wait for gank and you might win the lane. As for late, I don't really know. Most of the action in late game goes into teamfights. Orianna has this thing called "delivery system" where you give it to an ally with high mobility ( shyvana , lee , etc ) that goes right into the enemy. At that moment you ult ( the ball being on your ally ) and stun + damage them. Max the ability that moves her ball ( Q ,think. Sorry, I'm terrible at remembering the letters ) . For zed you might consider giving 2 points to the shield ( E ) in early to be able to stay on the lane longer so you don't recall every 2 minutes. Some max W but Q is more reliable as it gives a lot of damage, with a short cooldown, has a small chance of missing and is the most used skill. Q+W. To clear...waves? Farm? When mom called you for some help and you left your lane on it's own and now you have a milion minions taking your turret down? ( sorry for the terrible answer, didn't really get the question ) I don't usually use it that much as you have to be economic with your mana on Ori. No mana = you're dead. On zed you don't want to take many risks. You might get too close and... Oh. He ultied on you. Oh. You're a pile of metal now. Oh. Small note: I just play with the ball. Always consider E as an offensive skill too. It's basically a targeted Q that gives a shield.
: Yeah it seems bronze is just your level then if you are there with 4 years experience, seems your happy to play the champs u are playing and unwilling to change so unfortunately your gonna stay stuck in bronze but if your happy there then its fine :)
Umm... I may have not ( yet again ) made myself clear. I said I'll start to try things you guys pointed out. And I made this post because, obviously, I'm not happy in bronze.

: Try to make only a top 4, then we can talk again. Its not that its a bad idea to have many champions. But, its much much more easy for me to talk to you about a few specific examples. Heck, even out of those 4, I will probably only discuss one or two :) Also, if you want to know how well my farming goes here's a few few matches: I usually get ~200-300 in 30 minutes games. According to op.gg I'm getting between 5 and 7 CS per minute. Depending on how well the game went. Acording to Op.gg. You are getting (as not a jungler, since i'm meh in jungle can't judge that role farm wise) between 1 and 5.7 (lets say 6). Cs per minute. If you want I can give you the link of the website. Cs-ing is very important. You can even chose to move to a champion with which is very easy to CS. Look, I might have got to plat once again but what I play are like Akali, Diana, Malzahar. You see? very easy heroes. Hmm, when I was silver (never was bronze), I used to play Morgana mid a lot. Simply because I suck at farmed. And kept sucking at farming until lv5. When it suddenly became easy mode <3. I believe Oriana should also be easy to farm with once you pass a certain point in early game. But Azir will always be more difficult. I usually don't play on Eune. But if you want more help. We can talk and even play a few 1v1 where I'll try to figure out what you are doing wrong in lane and help you improve. However, if you would like that, you need a 4 champion list (and I'll like to avoid the junglers haha, my jungle skills and knowledge at just low gold lv)
Well then, I'll list them in my "skill" order: 1. Orianna - mid 2. Lux - mid 3. Evelynn - jungle 4. Azir

: this is another thing people do, they care more about counters so in the end they dont know the champions so well. I picked cassiopeia which i loved, and the enemy used to pick talon--> hard counter. You know what? I totally beat them inlane because they cared more on how to counter my champion than my playstyle.
Well , the only subject I talked about in the upper response was about my team. I rarely to never look up those counter lists , I just see what works well with the others.

: Can't get out of Bronze
For everyone posting here ( and also reading , lol ) , I tried, all this time to blame myself. I never blamed the others as I considered that being unfair. This is just the conclusion ( I realize it's a bad one ) that things are not up to me anymore. Maybe because I tried too hard. I don't know. I feel like that super old super grumpy police man that's just tired of seeing kids recording him with their phone and putting up "Police abuse" on youtube. {{item:3070}}

: Whatever you can do to stay positive helps, everything else is matter of luck ( if you are good enough of course ) and some games are just not possible to win. Mute all for start and see how it goes. I believe that everything is better than to hear '' ally has been slain '' for every half minute in first 10 minutes in game.
I think that's kind of unfair for the teammates. I said I usually meet assholes , but I can't call ALL of them that. There's some great people in there , too.

: >I learnt in school that if you want to change the world you first have to change yourself. Who lied to you? Anyway, for your questions. You are bronze because you lack game knowledge or mechanics or social skills or all 3 of them. So, if you want to climb out of bronze, you will need to acquire them. Social skills = being able to rise your team's morale and shit But due to how this community is, if you can keep silent and not flame, you passed. Game knowledge = know when your power spikes happen, know when to trade, know when to go for objectives, know when to fall back, know how to cs, know when to roam, know how to peal, know how to flank, know how to engage, match-ups, know your combos, build paths, what item is good for what situation, why is item X good, etc (depending on champions, some are champion dependent) Mechanics = ability to farm, ability to trade, ability to use your combo, ability to outplay (generally done by flashing over skillshots), ability to switch targets, ability to watch the mini map every now and then Now, list your top 4 champions. And check all the things I said above. Do you feel like you can do what I wrote above with all of them? Do you truly know them?
I'll have to do this globally for all my champs, because I have minuses and pluses everywhere, not just with one champ. Well, here we go : Orianna Azir Evelynn Lux The thing is I don't have a "Top 4" , because I play quite a lot of champs that would go in the top , since I had time to learn them very well ( 4 seasons ) Taric Kassadin Fiddlesticks and there would be some others. Now, for social skills and game knowledge I think I passed, whereas for mechanics .... ~I can't really farm well~ Most of the time with azir and orianna I'm able to pull 200 farm in minute 25-30 , but with others I just get 100-130 by that time. It's a thing I'm not really good at all the time. How I said , I do usually farm well , but I have some bad matches where those damn minions keep killing the other minions. x . x
: You are not losing because of the teams you get, yes you perhaps lose some games because of a poor team but they are a very small percentage of your losses, it is quite easy to get out of bronze with adjustments to the champions you are picking and knowledge from well put together guides by good players. Azir and Orianna may be champs that you are familiar with but unless you are highly skilled with both you are always going to struggle at Bronze given that both have low win percentages both less than 50%, you played once as Lux and I would suggest that you continue to develop your skills with that champ as she is a solid mid laner and can also be played as a support. If you are queuing mid and support then I would recommend getting good with champs like Janna Soraka Nami and Braum for support, and for Mid try Lux brand ahri malzahar vel'koz, champs like Vel'koz morgana and Lux you can easily use in both support and Mid. Knowing who to pick and when to pick them is also key to progressing, for example in one of your games you pick Taric as support versus a Team packed full of magic damage champs like Morgana Annie Twitch etc so straight away before that game as even loaded in your chances of winning are already on the back foot just by poor champ choice. There are many games where you pick Taric Versus heavy magic damage teams. You need to be much harder on yourself, the amount of time you have put into this post shows you want to improve it just seems that you may not be putting as much effort into getting to the goals you want to reach. If you put into place the few things I have suggested you will be out of Bronze within a month. If you want to use chat for anything use it to encourage ALL of your team to ward ward ward and WARD then get them to ward whilst they ward, honestly vision is so key to success in this game and a quick look down you games shows a massive lack of warding from game to game not just by yourself but by your team mates, just glancing down your games Im not sure you have ever bought a pink ward especially as support and you seem to have cleared no wards with pink or sweeping lense. You are clearly frustrated but that frustration will never go away until you make huge changes in how you approach the game you enjoy. Look I am only silver rank so I not an expert but it doesnt take a LoL boffin to see where you are going wrong at present. Best of luck and I hope you climb so silver soon and onwards up the ranks :) Sites I am using to assist me are: champion.gg counterplay.xyz lolking lolnexus.com
Thank you! As I mentioned, I played for 4 seasons now. I struggled to learn all these things. Some came in eazy, others harder ( I wish I could put this in other words :)) ) , but I still have them down. I actually fancy champions with complicated mechanics. For example my main is Orianna and I played her for 3 seasons. I know time doesn't really count here , but I took my time , checked a lot of guides and watched many pro players to reach my level ( same for Azir ). Like Larry pointed earlier, I think it may be a problem in my relation with the team , because individually I try hard enough ( i consider ) to get things right.
Larry (EUNE)
: First of all change your way of thinking. You pick the champions you know best but that doesnt mean they synergize with your team. Why would you pick a poke champion if you have an "all in" team? Why pick a champion when it does not provide anything usefull vs the enemy team? (e.g. picking kog maw when the enemy has 4 gap closers and your ally picked morgana for support, she cant protect you, he was going fo a kill combo and u pick afk fam adc) Always tell yourself that **_you are not good enough to carry your team's mistakes_**, because that is what solo Queue is about. You, carying your team's mistakes.If you fail doing that, then you are not worthy of climbing the solo queue. If you want to do that, pay attention to what your team does normally when you lose, and pick a role/champion to fill that gap. You think your junglers suck? Pick jungle and help all your lanes get carried. Your supports suck and cannot protect? Pick one yourself. I used to play blitzcrank at low elo because no matter how stupid my team is, they could kill 1v5. Later on i picked cassiopeia because i was able to do multiple damage to many enemies and escape easily, or turn the situation around with my ulti since the enemies didnt know my dmg output. As i climbed to gold i realised my team did stupid calls and could not run away, so i picked janna for disengage and reached platinum. Finally, now with this meta, offensive supports are better than pure supports because you rely less on your team and more to your skill, plus you have 2 enemies you can shut down in bot lane, so i find myself winning with agressive ap supports. You should not stick to the same champion with the same build. You should have versatile paths in building and tactics regarding champions. You dont need to be the best morgana eune, a simple binding and a well timed shield would do their job for your team. It's all about versatile DECISIONS
There were so many points I wanted to make I forgot about some you mentioned. I pick champs I know best to HELP my team. I'm sorry I didn't make myself clear , but I'm always looking for "wombooo combooo"s , such as Orianna + Malphite + Yasuo. Also, I don't play champs I'm good with because I like, or to feel good. I actually got really bored of many of them. I'm doing that so I don't , individually , play badly. I always look first on what my team wants and then I pick something for them, not for myself.
