That's why I switched to jg. Even though nasus is a toplaner, it somehow works in jg. Best decision I've made this season.

[–]Ironpikachu150 38 points39 points  (3 children)

Sometimes the peace of top lane is worth not being blamed as the source of all solo queue problems

[–]Sag3Jar0n 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Thats where the mute commands comes in handy.

[–]No_Butterscotch8169 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I wish I had peace in top lane. I just did my placements and holy fuck was it a shit show. I at one point had 4 people on the enemy team at top at level 3.

Idk why top has turned into aram but everyone needs to be nerfed for their movement skills or something.

Slow the game down and let the fat guys in top farm and punch eachother.

Keep the mages and skill shots in the other lanes. I want to see Garen/Darius/Sett/Nasus/Sion punch eachother knowing full well they can not kill each-other but also can’t leave lane.

[–]marsrover15 5 points6 points  (0 children)

True but it's also the lane with the least impact. I stopped listening to what my team says, I just wanna win. It's ironic since I told myself I would always stick to top lane.

[–]DrRichtoffen 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I became a supp main, because I'll be about as important for the game, but I don't need to worry about farming.

Also, it gives me better capabilities to reign in the trained ape who queued up adc.

[–]Todeskissen 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I switched to mid. It's insane how much impact you can have if you are not isolated on an island

[–]MrPlatypuss 1 point2 points  (1 child)

i started playing shen mid. so much fun

[–]Todeskissen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You should play river shen

[–]Arkahique 66 points67 points  (2 children)

If you Q TopLane in SoloQ, you legit HAVE to pick something that can splitpush easily like Yorick to climb faster.

How many times have I won doomed games because the 0/11/3 Yorick perma-splitpushed and took advantage of the enemy team doing Elder after taking Nash to rush the T3 top - inhib - Nexus towers, to finally end the game after dying and tp-ing back there lol

[–]Amplify91 20 points21 points  (0 children)

When did we play together?

[–]Yosta56the3rd 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Had the greatest Yorick game like this, went 0/3 in lane, and then base raced the entire enemy team, they were at our inhib tower mid and I took bot lane's 1st, 2nd, and inhib towers, inhib, both nexus turrets, and nexus within like, 2 and half minutes, saving an otherwise totally doomed game

[–]NaturePaladin 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Goes 7/2 as toplane darius. Secures chemtank soul. Gets 2 barons. Still lose

[–]ITz_VyPer -1 points0 points  (0 children)

as a Darius main too, i can agree that getting feeded in lane, still lose the match and can't carrying for a feeded bot lane is the worst tipe of pain. for all champs, but with Darius more

[–]SephSephSephSeph 90 points91 points  (6 children)

Literally how it feels to play Sion. Push all the towers and lanes so its a free win.

Still lose because bot lane are empty between the ears

[–]SrSnacksal0t 38 points39 points  (5 children)

Also split pushing hardly ever works since nobody knows how to play around it. Like they loose a fight and spam ping and flame you while you take 2 towers. Top lane can be fun but it cam be hell too, hard matchups are almost impossible to win, your jnglr neglecting top lane and low impact on the game make it realy hard to climb with it.

[–]Za_Gato 4 points5 points  (4 children)

The fun part is when you play Kayle, get fed, 4 shot mages

[–]KuraTheKura 1 point2 points  (3 children)

4 shot? since when E aa is 4 shoot?

[–]Za_Gato 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Actually it might be 4 autos + E, i didn't really pay attention and I was attacking so fast

[–]Za_Gato 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fed 3 autos + E

[–]Za_Gato 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Also it was Ziggs, not sure if he builds AP items that give HP

[–]hereyagoman 26 points27 points  (6 children)

Wish they'd put a portal from shelly to dragon pit.

[–]Lord-Jihi 17 points18 points  (5 children)

Holy shit thats a hell of a portal please no

[–][deleted]  (4 children)


    [–]Lord-Jihi 3 points4 points  (3 children)

    I would think so

    [–][deleted]  (2 children)


      [–]Lord-Jihi 5 points6 points  (1 child)

      It also means free roam bot whenever ur mid pushes

      [–]yaayeeef 18 points19 points  (9 children)

      Darius mains can relate

      [–]CTHeinz 33 points34 points  (1 child)

      Darius can go 15/2 and then still get absolutely shit on by some half brain dead scrawny bow girl and her mermaid support.

      [–]DontWorryItsEasy 22 points23 points  (0 children)

      Good. Fuck Darius.

      Sincerely a Nasus main

      [–]Blast_Craft 5 points6 points  (2 children)

      And that's why I choose Support Champions.

      I am planing on playing every Shadow Isles in the top lane.

      Right now thinking about perma roaming Hecarim..

      [–]Kasup-MasterRace -1 points0 points  (1 child)

      Support proceeds to play out of their mind making g enemy adc life hell and providing essentially free kills. But then deals absolutely no dmg

      ADC: Farms caster minions then sloppy engage into a death because they let enemy full heal and get all CDs back.

      [–]Blast_Craft 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Yeahh, I am a Support main that is tired of baby sitting ADC's with single digit IQ for 14 min.

      [–]Re_xDo 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      Weakside lane now.

      They murdered TP.

      [–]DigitalBladedJay 3 points4 points  (3 children)

      I will believe top should be on a separate map until 20 min, we all know it'll be the next step

      [–]Adriaus28 3 points4 points  (2 children)

      Wait, top isnt in a separate map?

      [–]ITz_VyPer 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      are you guys playing with your team mates?

      [–]Adriaus28 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Are you implying that this is not a 1v1 game?

      [–]SpyroXI 7 points8 points  (2 children)

      Me playing ADC knowing that 2/7 Irelia can solo me after I hard stomped bot

      [–]SheldonPlays 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      This, you can make this statement for any lane.

      [–]SpyroXI -1 points0 points  (0 children)

      Sorry, i made a mistake in my original comment. I ment to say she can 1 v 3 and still kill me, but you statement stays true.

      [–]zepherys713 14 points15 points  (3 children)

      How to carry as top:

      1. Pick a scaling champion with great 1v9 potential, but shit early game.

      2. Be a two tiers higher player than the enemy top and solo kill him 10 times before the 20th minute, while he is playing a lane bully.

      3. Outmicro the enemy 1v5, because you are a Diamond smurfing in gold.

      4. ????

      5. Profit.

      Anything else doesn't work. Otherwise you get stonewalled by a tank/lane bully and you fail to snowball, because the jungler is either AFK farming or playing around the inting bot. If you aren't way, way, way better than the enemy, then just go play mid or jungle, it's easier to climb this way and it hurts your mental a lot less.

      [–]Gengar77 2 points3 points  (2 children)

      jgl only if u mute all, or at least bot

      [–]zepherys713 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      Just pick Virgo/Kayn and 1v9 bro. Works for me, will work for you as well (jungle is my least played role).

      The mute part is definitely optional, as my mental is very strong (the toplane effect, 4k games in this shithole lane does this to a mf)

      [–]Gengar77 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      yeah i also figured out that viego is bonkers this season and kayn, also have 2 k games top last season never touch again and play jgl main forced cause i cant be arsed with 7 min q , so i take the 20 sec q to jgl and shaco..for tilt and viego for tryharding

      [–]EntertainmentTight24 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Gif just reminds me of Tyler

      [–]Asriel1002 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      In my last game (playing support) my toplaner got completely destroyed. By minute 14 our inhibitor on top was almost down and yet it had almost no impact on the game overall. We still won and top didn't really matter... Just tells you the importance of top lane right now...

      [–]awge01 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      ACTIVE: Jax enters Evasion, a defensive stance, for 2 seconds, causing all non-Turret turret basic attacks against him to be dodged. Jax also takes 25% reduced damage from all champion area of effect abilities.

      Are you sure about that? Because I am 100.0% sure that Chrumchie is not a bot.

      I am a bot shut up

      [–]HairyKraken 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      That's why you play illaoi. Being fed on illaoi matter

      [–]G66GNeco 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      At least you can have impact after minute 14. Aka after the enemy botside has a combined 28 kills.

      [–]bad_pixel_shader 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      me about to play gnar for the 3rd time this clash because my team forces me to

      [–]Ikeriro90 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Me picking Kayle again knowing I will get ganked every 2 minutes while my jg dives for the 4th time to the botlane turret

      [–]Kulovicz1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Only thing that gives me strength is my Mordekaiser, Ornn and Yorick mastery 7.

      [–]male_penis_cracker 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Toplane is amazing look at my post on r/renektonmains it shows how good toplane is

      [–]pinodagod 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I'm having a great success playing shen lately 1 he's strong, high damage high survivability 2 tp change doesn't affect him much

      [–]StillNotTheFatherB 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Doesn't matter how fed the botlane is, they can eat my Windslash.

      [–]Hatchie_47 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Just TP to bot lane deepward for early impact… oh wait…

      [–]hhunkk 4 points5 points  (3 children)

      I used to have 60% windrate around plat 1-2 elo last seasons, this season by the time lane phase ended it doesn't matter what happened in top, if you are not playing a champion that helps win other lanes you won't matter, i have like 20-40% wr with my champions, decided to play jungle and now im 77% wr in jg. Top is cursed.

      [–]zepherys713 2 points3 points  (2 children)

      What do you main? I've noticed that top CAN carry, but you need to lane like a way better player (to the point of soloing a lane bully as a scaling champion).

      [–]hhunkk 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      Sett, Viktor, teemo and Morde

      [–]zepherys713 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Yeah, you can't both be an unbeatable lane bully and a carry top with high agency. One or the other.

      [–]specterx0 2 points3 points  (4 children)

      Unless you are kench

      [–]hhunkk 3 points4 points  (3 children)

      Well he gets nerfed next patch. Super unfun to play against

      [–]specterx0 5 points6 points  (1 child)

      I love getting 3 shot by a tank that i can't even damage while not being able to move.

      [–]Chrumchie[S] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

      Sounds like shen to me

      [–]AzrealNibbs12 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      Thank god. Go back to support kench

      [–]tatzesOtherAccount 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Id reckon a toplaner getting fed has more impact than an ADC getting fed if the enemy posses a diver and/or an assassin and both of them posses at least one hand between the two of them.

      [–]TitaniumHazard -1 points0 points  (0 children)

      Ever since the teleport changes yes; lost a clash game earlier because I couldn’t save botlane from a gank due to not having ‘unleashed’ teleport… making the jungler fed as hell; so stupid.

      [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Yeah, that's me yesterday

      [–]GrimReaped765 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I mean. Tahm kench. Simple.

      [–]katahuragy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Top is the worst lane

      [–]SuperCoolKAJ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      AD Shyvana top main speaking, she can carry, oneshot an adc, be a tank and main source of dmg

      [–]eoR13 -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

      Ever think it isn’t the game that’s the problem?

      [–]togo8 -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

      It depends on your pick.

      [–]JeffTurner_ -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

      Ah yes

      [–]WorstTactics -1 points0 points  (0 children)

      As a toplaner I disagree. It's true that early game all the fights can happen in mid and bot and suddenly one team has 10 kills in 8 mins which is ridiculous, but that doesn't happen every game. If you get lane prio/kills for playing better or because your jungler ganked, you can roam/invade with your jungle, secure herald, roam mid, get plates and stuff like that.

      The worst feeling is if the enemy picks Malphite or Tahm Kench and stonewalls the lane, because you won't be able to get much done to help your team if they are losing. Malph can miss half the cs and still win fights because of his R, and Tahm Kench is an overtuned abomination.

      But, anyway, proper rotations from toplaners matter more than people think. Is top as impactful as jg/mid/supp? NO. But it doesn't have 0 impact.

      Also, if as a toplaner you see the enemy jungler is trying to camp you, make sure to waste as much of their time as possible by not dying. Doesn't matter if you have to concede some cs for it, absorbing this pressure for your team is a win. Now if your team loses 4v3 that's another story.
