Has anyone here got to high elo or at least out of silver playing top?

I'm learning jungle and support but I can't bring myself to play mid. Top is where I'm most comfortable and kinda helps that many tops can also jungle. If I ever have to play mid I'm just going Cho'gath >_>

A good top can make up for a bad carry, imo, so I can see how a good top can definitely be promoted. However, I'd also advise you to give mid a go, because you never know, the others in the lobby could just be like "LOLno" and dump you mid anyway.

I used to be really good at mid but haven't played it in so long. Now it's just irritating because of enemy jungler has like 6 ways to gank me and I have to run around everywhere. Top lane I just tell my jungler to not worry about me and stomp or oufarm and it's so nice and peaceful.

Top can definitely carry. Most low ELO games end in a surrender or quick base push before 40 mins. It's dominated by midgame and bruisers dominate midgame.

I carried myself from 1100 to Gold at the beginning of the season only really playing Rumble, Irelia, and Lee Sin. After it changed to Leagues my ELO had decayed to Silver and I was placed in Silver I. In the process of getting myself back to Gold.

I did for the most part. Got to my promo series playing mostly top lane, and then won the series with Draven.

honestly, if you play a champ like renekton who can snowball and peak midgame, you can turn the game into your favor
