Number of games played is only really a very rough indicator. I know people with over 1k wins who play around 1000 elo (I.e. Shockingly bad). Highest I've seen so far was 2971 wins, who was around 1900 elo.
That spell bug is rather annoying; I've seen it quite a lot. Also, I'm glad they're nerfing sona... she was kinda stupid really. Unless you picked double stun/burst combo or soraka, sona would simply outclass the opposite teams support.
Decided to scrap my 1337 ranking for now. Up to 1521, should hit 1600 soon. Last few ranked scores: 10/2/10, 5/2/2, 4/3/8 (Lost due to a worse team on average), 6/0/5, 10/2/2, 6/1/12, 8/4/11.
Really it's more about the rest of the team at the moment. Playing in normal draft usually ends up with around 1700-1800 elo average teams, where everyone knows what to do. Recently played against a team comprising of average elo at almost exactly 2000, which had elo's of 2.2k (2465 top rating, so previous #1. currently in around #80 ranked solo), 2x 2k, 1.9k, 1.8k... we kinda got beat down because unconventional setup.

Malphite, Garen, Galio, Jarven, Sion (depending who it is), Volibear, WW, Yorick can all still be played top. Riven is strong top, she can be beaten, but she has the highest total scaling of any character (AP or AD, yet everything scales of AD). Frankly, she needs nerfing. Her only real weakness is lack of laning sustain. I've played her about 12 times so far. At low elo, people don't have a good idea exactly how much damage she has... makes for easy kills (e.g. +0.5AD on passive, +1.8AD scaling on ult if they're at 25% hp).
