yeah i need to mentor a 1800 + carry player. I just want to learn 1800 bracket's farming techniques.
Go and check out some streams if you havn't alredy, you can probably pick up some tips & tricks from those, doubt its necassary to get a guy from the forums etc.
Just watch some replays. Watch some of moonmeanders SideStepGod games. He's been playing TDL lately and having pretty sick farm.
If you don't like that stream, then look at "Suggested Channels" on the right and look for (in no particular order); Tralfamadore, Kookiez, Shamz, Haxxeren, Chessie, Moonmeander, Khezu.
One of those 8 are almost guarenteed to be streaming at any given point during any day. Just about all of them (except Shamz) play mostly carries.
AngryTestie is probably your closest bet to a solo-queue player. He queues with people, but they are random public players and perform no differently than you would expect to see in your solo queue games. When it comes to carry players, he's one of the best in the business. Don't buy into that "he's boring. he only farm all the time" bull****. His technique is excellent. His farming is next to none and his positioning and map awareness are pretty close to flawless. He won't dance for you and make eccentric speeches like Moon will, but you can learn a lot from watching him.
Unfortunately, that the best advice I can give you. slickz used to solo queue a lot, but he rarely streams lately and when he does, it's often with clanmates. Moonmeander, Chessie and Haxx are in the same boat. Kookiez still solo queues a fair amount, but I'd say it's closer to 50/50. Tralf has been streaming a recently, but I've never seen him solo queue.
Testie queues with paying customers most of the time (like 90% I've heard), and even on teams with four supports, they'll still not ward for him. Beat him and one of his customer crews once with friends - just focused his team and took the big boss down 5v1. He still ended with over 300 GPM. :P
