How to be Top Elo in... 5on5 premade!
Have you ever played vs a team and accused them of using cheats? How can they farm so much? How can they always know where you are? If any of these questions ever popped up in your mind, keep reading!
Let's start talking about the picks. In a setup, you should have: 1 Tank, 1 Support, 1 AP, 1 Carry. Then the 5th guy should fit in your setup or counter the other setup. Top lane is always solo. Mid solo, bot dual-lane, and 1 jungler (Why top solo and not bot? Drake is important, and you will take the first teamfight for him, or at least you will try to do it before your enemy). A tank should go Top, mid or jungle. The support always goes bot. AD carries better lane at bot with the support, but he can also go mid, or even top. An AP carry should go top or mid. In Europe, the most used is Tank top, AP mid, Carry + Support bot, and one offtank jungling. You can also try Top and Mid with 2 AP heros, and let the jungle for a tank.
Best tanks for solo lane? Malphite, Shen, Cho'Gath and Gragas.
Best AP for solo lane? Vladimir, Kassadin, Anivia, Kennen, Malzahar, Morgana, Twisted Fate, Swain, Karthus.
Best AD carry? Ashe, MF, Sivir, Corki, Tristana, Kog'maw, Pantheon and probably Caitlyn.
Best support? Janna, Taric, Sona, Soraka, Zilean.
Best jungler? Evelyn, Rammus, Amumu, Shaco, Warwick.
Lets explain the laning phase a little bit: You must focus on the Last-Hit. Dont do auto attacks for pushing if your enemy is waiting for you. He can let you push, waiting for a gank of the jungler. Then if you die, he outfarms and outlevels you. You should train your Last-Hitting really hard. It's the 1st step to be a good player in this game. In bot lane, the farm should be for the carry. Support doesn't need much farming.
The supports objective is to buy wards, and items for the team (Aegis, SoulShroud, Shurelia..). You have to control always the Drake, and after minute 18/20, the Nashor. Taking a Drake means: 190 gold / player of you team, and experience for you allies near your champion. That is almost 1000 gold. For the first minutes, that is SO much. In the late game it's not that much. You can also ward enemy's golem/lizard to steal them. If you steal a golem from Anivia/Kassadin/Malzahar, he will be so fucked.
For the first minute of the game. You can go all together to the enemy's jungle to steal their golem/lizard. Always tank first for if you take the fight at level 1. In that level, any hero is a good focus. Just try to focus him with everything you have. Even a tank in that levels is weak.
Other thing I will say is that, I always prefer a setup with a good initiator. Which heros are good initiators? Ashe, Malphite, Amumu, Rammus, Anivia, Morgana, Malzahar, Warwick, Gragas...
And the last tip I will give to you is... train hard and get experience.
Good luck in your games, and have fun.
