So after noticing that Tryndamere has become less frequently banned in ranked (maybe half the time or less now), I've decided to start my little project.
The Tryndamere challenge: play Tryndamere exclusively in solo ranked games for a couple weeks and see where it takes your rating.
So far I've won every game and have climbed close to 100 points. I am hardly a hardcore Tryndamere player. I use a simple generic dps rune page (mostly armor pen), hell I don't even have all tier 3 tunes (despite having played 3000 games, spend all IP on champs). Cleanse + summoner spell of your choice seems to be the way to go.
I'm wondering how this can affect other players, so I propose the community wide Tryndamere challenge.
1. Announce that you have taken up the Tryndamere challenge!
2. List your ranked rating as of the start of the challenge.
3. Post your win/loss results from every game where you played Tryndamere.
Now, I hardly ever play ranked. At the start of the season a friend invited to play some ranked with him. I had no idea that duo used the same rating as solo and figured "Sure, who cares about our group rating?". This friend is fun to play with but he is pretty bad! Imagine my shock when after the 5 losses for placement games that my solo rating was now 900! I tried clawing my way back up, playing several games in a row as Volibear where I was MVP going about 11-3 each game, but this was still not enough to carry my team with blanket 0-8 scores. I was officially trapped in ELO hell, something I thought was a myth before this.
Thus the inspiration for the Tryndamere challenge was born. This will give me a chance to see how he performs at all rating levels as I move up from 900.
Current W/L record @ 900-1000:
Who else will take the Tryndamere challenge?
