-As with most cases, CS score is bad. It's extremely important to get as much CS as you can. 11 CS gives you the around same amount as a kill and that's FAR easier and less risky to get than a kill..
I am usually support so low CS. When I mid Kass, I have to spend most of the game trying to save top or bottom.
And yes, his CC is a little low before level 6 because he is melee, but I still have the same or better CC as my opponent.
-Kass is unreliable as a solo queue carry and is a counter pick, not a main pick.
I have NEVER lost my lane as Kassadin in bronze. Can I carry the entire team... no -- too squishy.
-Don't build spell vamp on kass. You're job is to nuke people, not slowly kill them and regen in between.
I have stopped getting spell vamp the past several games, but that's not the cause of my team losing. It was just an item I was throwing in WAY after my 3 big expensive items + boots.
-Don't take barrier on kass. Ignite or teleport in almost all cases. Teleport has more carry potential.
I agree, I need to get Ignite. But Getting Barrier has allowed me to jump on FED ADC's and get out alive. Every game I have to play against a 15-0 hero that fed all game on my teamates.
-Rune pages are kinda funky. Not one page has armor yellow, which is the best option in more cases than any other rune.
I spent all my rune money AGES ago when I had no idea what I was doing, been slowing improving it, But GOOD advice, that will be my next purchase.
Take exhaust or ignite on supports, mostly exhaust though. Heal just doesn't give as much.
I have been trying the heal because of the support skill +hp/5 if you have it. Was trying it out to help my ADC.
Also, although Janna is a great support, you need to learn supports that make the plays to win the game.
I would love for someone to watch me play Janna and tell me it is not brilliant, or at least High Silver level play.
Blitz, Thresh, Zyra (Zyra has added bonus of basically building as pure AP later game) are all far better options for carrying as support. The other supports all have their place, but really it's dependant on skill
Blitz are Thresh are perma ban in Bronze. I don't own Zyra and have never played her.
I just played a game where everyone on my team was bronze 3 or lower. Our Top and Jungle went a combined 3-21 with most of those deaths going to a Mid Mordakiser. I played Janna and made my ADC our best hero who started out like 4-0, then I switched to helping our feeding GARBAGE mid, and helped him farm 8 kills before game ended.
Mid was Talon and he said "Mid or Feed" to start the game.
LoLKing is very useful, but it doesnt' tell the whole story.
I would love to watch a platinum player get a team of 3-30 and turn it into a win.
