Best League of Legends Characters for Jungle in Season 3
Season 3 in League of Legends changed the way the meta, and game in general was played. This is apparent in many ways, but some easy ways to tell are that games usually go faster, teams like EG (ex-CLG.EU) who used to be unbeatable by many teams, have almost fallen off because their style of play no longer works. In this article I want to inform new players of the changes, and what to expect, and how to play in the jungle specifically.
Jungling in League of Legends, I think is one of the easiest ways to carry your-self out of a horrible low ELO/league. The only downside is that you are the play maker for the lanes, but if your lanes can’t hit their skills or secure the kills, your job could be a little harder.
Here are some good Jungling Champions for Solo Q in LOL Season 3
1. Xin Zhao – I love this dude. He is my go to champion most of the time for jungling.
Reasons why I love him – GAP CLOSER, KNOCK UP, HEALS.
How I build him – 9/21/0 seems to be what works best for me. I usually go sun fire, phage, defense boots, and then adjust to what I think is needed. I go wriggles a lot but im not sure if that is the most efficient item anymore, blade of the ruin king would be good, and also black cleaver.
2. Volibear – Gap Closer, speed increase, fear, Tanky
3. Nasus – Slow, Tanky, Dog
4. Rengar – Gap closer, Slow, Stealth
5. Nocturne – Fear, Speed Increase, Gap closer with ult
6. Hecarim – Speed Increase, Gap Closer, Knock back
Those are some good junglers to learn, of course they aren’t the only ones, nor are the other ones bad. The reason I listed the above champions is because of GAP CLOSERS. Honestly, I think season 3 is all about getting in your face and go HAM. Being tanky on these champions is superior to going full glass cannon. Why you might ask? Well, since you are the jungler and usually have a slow/stun/knockup etc, you make plays and help your other lanes snowball ahead. With some hp and armor you are able to tower dive, slow the enemy under turret and soak up the damage and get your carries out alive. This is your job; this is also how you carry your team on your back.
I hope this short article was useful, I am in no way a professional, but I did just hit gold from bronze with 60 games played, I did not lose very many on the way up. Season 3 is all about being aggressive, keep the pressure on when you have a lead or else they can just farm and catch up. Good luck pwners!
The Anti-Rage Guide – How to Not Rage in LOL
If you play League of Legends, then you have probably raged once or twice in your time pwning. This guide is to help with people handle their anger and realize that it is just a game, and some people are just retards, and there is no changing that, at least for that game. The point of the game is to just enjoy playing a great game, you can blame the LOL community, but in reality, the entire internet, Xbox live and play station network all have the same players. Make the best of every situation and game.
Here are some common signs of raging –
1. Mashing of the shift or use of the caps lock key
2. Spamming chat with insults or general hate
3. Spamming the ping key while in game
4. Grunting loudly and redness of face
5. Intentional feeding or desire to AFK
6. Temptation/Act of setting your computer on fire.
7. Throwing mouse, keyboard, or hulk smashing either one.
After you have shown signs of RAGE please take a moment to ask yourself. “Am I raging?” “Am I drinking Hateraid right now by the gallon?” “Are my hands clenched so tight my nails are causing me to bleed?” And other such questions of this sort. If any of these questions turn up yes then you have confirmed you are raging (And might need to see a doctor, cuts can get infected you know).
Analyzing the rage
How am I raging? What am I raging at? Why type of rage is this?
These are all important questions to ask when you have confirmed the rage. For without knowing what type of rage it is you won’t be able to take further steps to correct your rage!
Common types of rage include
1. Nerd Rage- “They questioned my build! I know better than them! I’ll show them how pro my build is by FEEDING!” *Rage rage rage rage*
2. Gank Rage- “Oh my god man there is nothing I can do I get ganked over and over no matter where I go.. best solution to this is to FEED”
3. MIA Rage- “You didn’t Call MIA why didn’t you call MIA Why can’t I take 1 second to look at the mini map every once and a while to realize that their lane is missing. I guess I’ll just face check every bush now.. and FEED!”
4. Ranked Rage “All you guys SUCK you’re ruining my ELO my precious ELO, obviously my ELO is more important than life it’s self.. so to prove how important ELO is I’m going to afk… then FEED!”
5. Rage Rauuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu-…. then FEED!”
6. Eldritch Horror Rage- AHDOSFJhfasdokseioajwesyy!@$*&*asdjfx,mcnv… then FEED!
If you have any of these rages proceed to the next step immediately. ((Or if it’s eldritch horror rage.. proceed to summon forth your dark god to lay waste your enemies))
Curing the rage
By far the most important step in this entire guide, or any guide ever in fact.
1. Take a deep breath then let it out.
2. Think of something funny or something that will make you smile.
3. Realize this is just a game and you’re here for fun.
4. Laugh out loud.
5. Stand up and do interpretive dance for 10-30 seconds (Depending on re spawn time)
6. Take a chill pill
7. Let it all out by screaming at the top of your lungs. (Only recommended if you are alone in the house.. and if your window is closed.)
So please if you are prone to raging, try to follow this guide, save your teammates from hearing you be dumb, annoying, and aggravating. Save a game, cure the rage.
As of you may have already heard, or if it is a later date, League of Legends has decided to toss out the ELO ranking system and go with a more divisional type of ranking / ranked game solution. This new ranked LOL system is very similar to that of Star craft 2’s ranking system. This needed to be done because the ELO system wasn’t a good motivator for most people. It was extremely annoying and didn’t really promote playing ranked as much as it should. This new system will place you into Tiers, with your friends, and has a bottoming out limit so even if you tank 10 games, you ultimately will still be at your highest tier.
So for more detail I will talk about the tiers. Basically there will be low to high tiers like Starcraft 2. Bronze being the lowest(0-1050 elo), Silver (1050-1300 elo), and so on. Once you are into your tier it will be a group of about 250 people in your division, so you would say I’m silver tier and in “Gankplanks Hardy Crew” division. When you view your division you will see your place, from rank 1 to rank 250, you will also see things that signify if someone is doing well, say on a winning streak, and other little signs relating to the person.
The positive side to this type of ranking system with League of Legends is that if you lose a game, the farthest you can fall is to rank 250. You will maintain your tier unless you become inactive for a month or longer. To get promoted, you will have a series of games, and depending on how you do in those games(somewhat like placement matches) will determine if you will be bumped up to the next tier(gold, silver, platinum, ect…).
If you watch any league of legend streams, you will notice that many the pro players are in their games with the same people very often. This will somewhat be the case for everyone now, because it will want to place you with friends and people from your division before it branches out for other players from a different division. Pretty awesome bro!
Well those are just the basics of the system and my ELO numbers for the bronze > silver brackets may be slightly off. Enjoy the new system & let’s hope you get an awesome division name.

Many people wonder what the best champion to carry in solo q in League of Legends is.
I wonder this from time to time also, and while I am no professional, I am going to give you my experienced and educated opinion.
First off, it is important to know that League of Legends is a team game, but with that said, and as you have seen I am sure, people like to go lone wolf and 1v5 the enemy team. I’ve come the conclusion that Ranged AD champions, and squishy champions/support champions are the hardest to actually carry a game on because they almost completely depend on your team being a team, and if you don’t get good positioning, or protection by your tank and CC’ers, you will be pwned.
The best combo would be something like a bruiser, or top laner, or if you duo with a buddy, you can do bruiser/jungler/top lane. There are of course different scenarios as everything, and anything is technically viable, but for the consistent carry on your back wins, the tankier people will do better.
Here are some good champions to carry solo q with ( in my opinion and researched from professional’s opinions)
And the list goes on, but use your best judgement, and try to duo with a competent friend. Get your good combos down, and try to steam roll from there.
A bit of advice, be AB-normal, as in gank people at level 2 with 3 people, then do the same to top. Yes it will put you slightly behind on creeps, but it can allow for massive snow ball, and if you get a few more kills on someone, the game is basically won.
