Hello, my dear friends, the first thing you need to know, that this guide is created for the Junglers, here you can find something new.
Jungle | SoloQ
This is a guide, where I tried to concentrate all available information, that is needed to rise Elo, playing as a Jungler. In this guide, I will focus firstly on players of Bronze and Silver league, but I’m sure that many players of greater divisions can find something interesting here.
We all love to play in League of Legends, this is interesting, fascinating and funny. But sometimes SoloQ ranked matches is a real pain in the ass. All that I will write down here, is focusing on the one main purpose – raising Elo. To reach this goal you need to play mostly on one role, and play a lot. You need to carry four more guys, that probably even does not know how to play in LoL, You need to take a responsibility for all that is happening in a game, correct others’ mistakes, play not only for yourself but for the whole team.
SoloQ | How to rise Elo playing as Jungler
Everyone set their own goals when they start LoL. For someone, this goal is just to gain pleasure from the game, for someone – to add salt in games. They play normal games, or ranked, solo or in a team, but they play mostly for fun. But we need to chase another goal – to rise Elo.
After you set a goal, you need to focus not only on the game but also on your behavior. Behavior is the most important thing in all kinds of activities. Never start a game, if you upset, have a bad mood, or some problems in real life. If you feel unusual, but still want to play, then play in any other game mode, like a normal draft, ARAM, dominion and else.
Never start games when you tired. Every man has their limits, after what you start to play significantly worse. Try to notice when you starting to think out of the game. If you see that you starting lose focus on LoL, then try to change activity. Just know when to stop. Many players just lose a freaking lot of games, only because they do not know when to stop. If you lose 1-3 games, then just take a break. Most of the players just fall in rage and start to spam games, dramatically increasing their losing streak. And in the worst scenario, you may start to troll in games.
Remember that if you decided to play League of Legends then you need to be chill. Take a break if you feel tired and you will reach new heights.
Jungler is the most independent role, where everything depends only on you. Playing as a Jungler you free to choose where to gank, when to gank, when to aim a Dragon. I prefer a tank-initiators type of junglers, so I choose where and when all team fights will start. And the right initiation of the team fight is the half of success.
To carry low elo games, you need to play on strong champions. Always follow the Meta, learn new champions. Your task – to find which champions are strong at this moment and to master them. Strong champion is not always popular, strong champion – is that kind of champion that can carry games almost by himself. Take Shivanna as an example. Many think that she is weak because she is not popular, but with the right items she is able to deal freaking lots of AoE damage and can fight almost 1 vs 3.
With the new patch, your favorites may meet some nerfs, so you need to quickly learn a new champion. This is an infinitive process, and you need to adapt to it.
Understand your team
Adapt to your team. Watch how they play, and how they act. In most cases, you can locate an idiot just in the lobby. Never focus on bad players in a game, do not even try to help them during the game. Idiot with a 4-0 stats can still lose a lane.
Focus on good players because you need allies in a match. Help him, gank his lane and you together you will be able to win a match. Even if he does strange things, it will be better to risk and assist him.
Many peoples, especially from Bronze, just loves to whine at the team. “I have a great CS and KDA, that means that I am a King and you all are Losers!” This is incorrect. You need to understand that if you want to break through low Elo you need to carry games, carry the whole team. If someone was killed by gank, then be sure that he buy and place a ward. If he did not bought it, then buy it by yourself, go to him, and place it.
Remember that you do not need /all chat. So go and disable it right now. Enemies, allies, all players of League of Legends use this chat to whine, flame and troll. If you here to start a conversation with some new peoples, then try something else. League of Legends is a competitive moba game, not some personal chat service. When someone starts to whine, flame then just add him to the ignore list.
Jungler champions | SoloQ
Personally, I divide all jungler by 2 groups – farmers and gankers.
Farmers – those junglers which full potential opens only in middle and late game. They do not that good at ganking, but they able to quickly farm jungle minions. Shyvanna is a great example, that can so effectively farm jungle that she can have the same level as the other solo laners. Other great farmers are Dr. Mundo, Amumu, Nasus, and others.
Gankers – junglers that really strong in early stages of the game. These champions are quite bad at farming, but they can deal great damage already by the 3rd level.
But this does not mean that playing on farmer you need to focus only on farm. You need to open the potential of a champion on all 100%.
This is the end of the First part of my guide, the second will be released probably in the next week. Summing up all that I wrote above, I want to say that it is easy to leave Elohell solo, all you need to do is to put some efforts in it, and you will quickly see how your rating is growing up. But if you feel that all this is pointless, then you can always use elo boosting services.
