Hello everyone. I come here to ask for some advice when going solo top.
I usually play support or top. Mostly support, and usually nobody else wants that role so it's fine, but sometimes I'm forced to take something else and I usually choose top.
Now, my problem is, I have trouble going against lots of champions, unless the person is just terrible. I tend to not be very agressive, unless I play something like Shivana or Garen, and even then I think I'm not as agressive as I should. For example, yesterday I had 2 games where one I was Fiora and wen't against a Rumble... not much I could do there, I kept up with him on farm most of the time, he killed me once or twice and I killed him once... But it got to a point where he could just come into my tower, turn on the flame thrower, kill my minions and drop like 1/4 of my health and then get out without much punishment, just because he could do a lot more damage than me with just his flame thrower (Also, I had hex drinker for the Mresist,not sure if this was a bad choice).
Next I played Zac because my friends told me to go top with an AP character, and wen't against a Nasus, and well, I didn't die, but there was nothing I could do to keep him from farming his Q, and in the end he got wayyy too many stacks of his Q + like 20CS more than me and of course destroyed my tower.
So, I want some advice, am I doing something wrong? Am I supossed to just depend on the jungler most of the time?. Do I just need to be more agressive? I prefer to wait for the right moment, or wait for my jungler before attacking, but that sometimes lets the other person farm too much, even if I keep up with them.
Also, the champs I like to play as solo tops are : Shyvana,Garen, Trundle,Zac,Irelia,Yorick, Vi and Shen. (Also, I usually don't have much trouble when I go Vi,Shen or Yorick top, but I do with the others).
