    If you are at the skill level of gold players and play say, 2-3 ranked games per day, I don't think you will have a problem getting to gold in the 5 weeks left. It's an unanswerable question because no one knows what skill level you're at or how many games you play a day. Some people play 1000 ranked games and don't hit gold. Others can do it in 20 games.

    Well I'm having little issue with Bronze and low Silver competition. As for playing, my internet is garbage until like 3 AM so I can get 2 tops in a day.

    Well, now I feel good about myself.

    Then again, I haven't had a lot of success with top recently, so... it might be that.

    Teemo is, shockingly, a decent counter to a lot of top laners. He's a bitch when I'm Nasus, but it's not quite as bad as a Riven.

    I think Blinding Dart prevents you from farming your Q early game.

    Yeah it does, which is why Teemo is a pain. Rushing Spirit visage helps. I can't, for the life of me stay even remotely close to a riven though.

    He needs to be. It's the only thing he's got going for him, as he's absolutely useless in teamfights. The one way to make that count is by making the enemy top laner useless as well.

    I was waiting on my food to finish cooking so I decided to do an ARAM because those are fast.

    I get a 38 minute showdown where at one point our nexus was at 30% life and saved by two guys rezzing, and then we had their nexus at 40% hp and an inhibitor respawned. In the end we won a team fight and then the game, but I that was the closest and longest ARAM I've ever seen.

    Winning that ARAM felt more satisfying than winning any ranked game ever. Too bad it's not often where you get two teams that are looking to team fight instead of the boring poke war in ARAM.

    I managed to get from Silver III to Gold V by playing 2 ranked games a day after work. I'd be too tired to play ranked after that. My mmr did always put me against golds though. Funny thing I've found is that Silver I people tend to play better than the Gold V people I've gone against. Is it because Gold V people get lazy once they are in Gold? Not sure. Think that's pretty much the same then for each bracker. Though I can't confirm

    I once had a 75 minute ARAM like that. Good times indeed :P

    I think the lowest bracket of each division has a pretty bad rep; you get a lot of people who would drop down from that bracket if riot allowed it, so they really should be in a lower division, and you get people who get there and think, well, I can't drop down so there's no reason to try that hard right now and use it as their personal playground to troll or experiment - which they wouldn't have done if there were consequences to losing matches.

    I hope it changes for season 4 to be honest, I don't think you should be able to sit at 0LP in division 5 and troll (or even just not try very hard) for 100 matches without any fear of losing anything.

    They did actually make a post about this on S@20 a while ago. Think about a month? They said that was the biggest flaw in their rating system and you will most likely be able to drop leagues in the future if your mmr drops low enough. They did say probably so I'm gonna hope it does happen. I agree my first few games in gold V has been rough, not because people are good but matches have been decided by whichever side has the most trolls. Which kind of sucks, now that I'm finally about to hit promos games are the complete opposite! Both teams are good and no match has been decided within the first 30 min.

    At least those trolls will get screwed next season for placement matches since your mmr has a lot to do with that. So hopefully they will have to climb up a lot to get back to where they were >.< Personally I'm just trying to get higher so I can start hopefully in gold and have to avoid Silver II again. For me that was the worst part of my climb.

    Won my 2nd promo series... Bronze 2 now.

    Teemo hurts against slow, inmobile top champions because they have no real way of engaging him or sticking to him. Garen is somewhat included because he can bring you down far before you can start damaging him due to blind. Oh, and your passive? Just imagine you don't have one.

    Against RIven, you should know when you can take him on. Once you hit 6, if you manage to engage him he's screwed. You are mobile, high damage, high utility and a blind is not enough to stop you. Makes it a hard decision whether to level E or Q.

    For me, people on Silver 1 weren't as good as Gold 5, in terms of throwing the game and knowing what to do, but I still had some bad players of course.

    Gold 5 improved my games quite a lot and now I'm in Gold 2 and I rarely get any stupid people at all but there's the occasional person/people throwing the game sometimes, but it's still winnable even so.
