Most Famous League of Legends Eloboosters
The players I'm about to introduce to you are the most famous Elo boosters in the history of League of Legends, most of them have stopped lol boosting by now, and are either playing competitively on the highest level, or streaming.
RATIRL is an EUW Challenger jungler, and as his name suggests- you guessed it right, he is the world's #1 Twitch jungle player.
Before making it as a famous streamer thanks not only to his incredible mechanics, RATIRL was known for being one of the best Elo boosters in the region. He was also accused of scripting and was an extremely toxic player.
What made him such a good lol elobooster was his mechanics and his cheesy plays, you could say RATIRL mastered the perfect champion for his abusive playstyle. Twitch is cheesy and the aspect of surprise allows one to stomp players among all leagues, you can abuse stealth and kill anybody that doesn’t respect it and take down the game very fast. Not only is the jungling phase good on Twitch, but he gets as strong as it gets as the game scales on!
His favorite way of boosting was the Lulu + Twitch funnel that consists of putting an Ardent Lulu mid or support and follow Twitch 24/7 as he ganks and farms the enemy jungle. I think it's good to note that this strategy was pretty unknown before RATIRL made it popular on stream as people were curious about it.
His boosting skills have shown to be undisputable as he climbed multiple accounts to Master/Challenger with 85% or even higher win ratios on the most competitive server the West has to offer. As far as we know though, he has now stopped boosting and he works as a fulltime streamer.
DOPA, also known as Apdo, is probably the best Soloq player to have ever played the game. He got rank #1 several times on both the Korean and the Chinese ranked ladders, he mains mid and has been the only player able to match Faker on mid for a few seasons
The things that make DOPA shine greater than anybody else is the fact that he isn't just a mechanical monster, but he's even better at macro and wave management. By this, I mean that he can stomp even professional Korean or Chinese players without killing them once. He is always at the right place at the right time and his wave manipulation is always perfect and puts the enemy into very uncomfortable lose-lose situations.
DOPA has also gotten popular by boosting from the lowest division at the time, Bronze 5, to rank #1 Challenger in Korea on stream and that cost him an indefinite ban from competitive gaming by Riot Games and KESPA, but he stated that he didn't care since he had no plans to play as a professional, and that boosting made him more money anyway.
He is very special because he keeps his #1 position even despite never changing his champion pool and adapting to the meta.
He mostly plays three champions, these are-
- Twisted Fate
TF for the incredible map pressure he has just by hitting 6 and the easy wave manipulation, you can also get a few items ahead of your opponent due to TF's passive if you CS well, and that's what DOPA's best at.
Kassadin is very powerful in mages and very mobile after level 6. It's a really strong snowballing champion, so if you spot your enemy making a mistake, you can punish him and start trucking them down pretty fast. You have an extra win condition, your level 16, that gives you so much mobility and damage that you can one-shot almost everybody, just in case the game goes on for too long.
Orianna is a lane bully that takes lead quite easily, you can then abuse the lead by pressuring your enemies with the ball and Ultimate for objective control. She also manipulates the waves with ease using the same method.
Even when these 3 champions are not in the meta, DOPA keeps playing them at the top level and it is insane because most of the pro players or challenger players change their picks and the way the game is played every other patch.
Tarzaned is an NA jungler who claimed rank #1 NA multiple times in season 6, 7, 8 and has the challenger LP count world record.
Before becoming a fulltime streamer, he was known as one of the best elobooster in North America. Similar to DOPA, he was boosting from Bronze 5 to Rank #1 and this also cost him a competitive ban from Riot Games.
Despite his toxicity and win trades, Tarzaned is an incredible jungle player who has a very versatile champion pool that can adapt to any meta.
His signature pick is Graves, and he likes to make up that he is the best Graves player in the world.
He is a very arrogant player, claiming that he can beat even legends like Faker and DOPA in the jungle, but whenever he tried climbing even the EUW ladder, he got stuck at Diamond 1 or Master, so most pro players treat him like a clown.
Nowadays he has a fulltime streaming career and also works as a Coach, it also seems like he has completely stopped boosting on his way to reform himself.
Pornstar Zilean is a challenger euw Draven main, and the inventor of Disco Nunu.
He's been hitting the top ranks of the ladder since season 2 and he even hit rank #1 in EUW twice in season 7. Pornstar Zilean also got to challenger on the Korean server which is known for being the hardest Soloq ladder in the entire world.
He is also known for his insane eloboosting skills. In the past year, he boosted dozens of accounts to Master/Challenger with astonishing winrates- that might look normal for the other people on the list, but PSZ is the only player here that mains ADC, showing that truly any role is capable of carrying and making it to the top spots!
He has a very oppressive playstyle that barely anybody even among the professional players can keep up with, and everyone knows how deadly a snowballing Draven is with his passive and his insane damage.
Most people consider him the best Draven in the world, since he has pretty much been only playing Draven his whole career, and always keeps his at the position at the top ranks doing just that.
These days he streams and as far as we know he still boosts, sometimes he even streams eloboosting.
Nicolaj "Jensen" Jensen, formerly known as "Incarnati0n", the best solo player of the West, undisputable #1 challenger throughout Season 2 and 3, is today a star midlaner of the NA LCS.
Nowadays he has a very versatile champion pool, but during his boosting days he mostly played Fizz and Veigar, he also claimed rank 1 on an account named Apdo Dog2, showing respect to DOPA.
He had the highest win rate in Challenger in season 2, 3 and was playing completely solo, but like most of the Elo boosters on our list, he also got banned from competitive stage for rank boosting and ddosing enemies and had to wait until season 5 for an unban from Riot to have a shot in the professional scene.
He is the only known player to have graduated from boosting Solo ladders, to boosting NA LCS teams. He currently plays for Team Liquid and has reformed to keep it up in the pro scene where he is doing well so far, and we wish him the best of luck in keeping it up!
As you can see. majority of the best boosters play either mid or jungle, but have very different playstyles, ranging from more mechanically oriented, to macro gods.
A trait all these players have in common is that they are very arrogant and egoistic, each flaming or demeaning all other players, professional or not. Only Jensen seems to have completely reformed, started taking the game seriously and is an exemplary professional player now, but most of the other players are still stuck in their old ways.
