Fighting in the EloHell - # 15

Status: Bronze V - Position 10 / 55

Ban & Pick
I got slot 3. It was a quiet start in the chat. Since Nautilus was banned already, I voted for support and chose Lulu. After my vote some others voted for their lanes.
My first sorrows should have shown up, when our slot 5 realized he will be jungle. He picked Amumu but doesent seem happy about it.

Life Update

So I don't think I've ever posted a general update about my mundane life on a MOBAFail blog before, but since there are some pretty exciting things happening, I thought "why not start now?".

The one exciting (and somewhat stressful) thing in my life at the moment requires a bit of backstory. Probably a month ago, I'd guess, a friend suggested that I sign up for a casting call for a reality TV show. I didn't really expect it to go anywhere, but I signed up anyways (sort of as a joke). The premise of said show is that they pay for you to go see your online SO (and also pay you for being on their show), the catch being they film the two of you throughout the whole experience and that both of you have to be on American reality TV. The show is usually restricted to the US, but they want the next season to include international couples, so a producer called me back the next day. Since then I've talked to another producer more than a few times both over phone and Skype. She recently sai…

~ Video Editing ~
Today I'm actually going to do edits for my Youtube Channel. :O Wow, something new! I'm actually not being lazy today and I'm creating videos of outplays that I've forgot to upload in the past! *wow cool wow* so yeah in case anyone is actually reading this you can check out my channel here! You might just see some cool content. :)

Being ADC With your Skype Friend.

Well... being ADC can be a nice experience if you have a nice Support. Now, to get started, you have to know what to build to your ADC champion. One Word, CriticalAndAD xD.
And now.... the support, a tip: ADC Ashe with support... 3 choices:
1.- Lux.
2.- Morgana.
3.- Zyra.

Ok, this 3 champs can catch the enemy and will make you dont fail your ultimate.
How to do this without getting slow in game only typing?
Use Skype, TS or another voice chat service.

You can try this with other ADC Champs!

Another Tip - Follow this Guide and take the Bot lane to the Maximum!


I Main X

I found this interesting.

The link at the top of the page that should go directly to the section on Jinx is not working.

Scroll to Context on Recent PBE nerfs to Jinx

"Additionally, it's worth mentioning Jinx's dedicated player base. If you run into a Jinx player on live that person is going to have 31 games on her on average, That's up there with other "I main dis guy forever" champs like Yasuo, Lee Sin, and Riven. For comparison, Graves has a similar play rate to Jinx (they're neck and neck for most picked ADC), and yet the average Graves player only has 16 games on him. This isn't meant to be a knock on Graves but more a highlight on the fact that many of the Jinx's you run into out there have played her A LOT and as such you'd expect a higher win rate out of her due to player experience." - Gypsylord

My emphasis.

The only champion I have more than 16 games played on in Ranked is Jarvan IV, with 35 games played over S4 and S5.

Growing Up

I don't know why I even ever do blogs, no one cares what I have to say, I'm a nobody. ;(

ANYWAYS, on topic now...

So I got to thinking about time and growing up. I'm 16 right now, about to leave my sophomore year of highschool. I'm getting my drivers license on June 12th, so I'll be able to drive around, have more freedom, but also more responsibility. My point to this is that I'm growing up. I'll be an adult in a couple years, and I'll be off to college and then a career, family, and adult life. To me, that's a strange and scary thought. I don't think I'm ready. In 8th grade, which wasn't that long ago for me, graduation felt like a million miles away, and now it's pretty much right on me. Time flies man, and I hate it.

I don't think I'm ready to graduate. I don't have the life skills I need. I don't have a good work ethic, and I don't know the first thing about doing my own taxes, balancing a check book, and I have terrible social skills. I'm not an unpopular kid, but I'm not a p…

Jungle G

Jungle Starts

-Blue Side-

I prefer to start Red Buff as that thing hurts without armor, so the leash helps you mow through it quicker and Smiting it returns quite a bit of health.

Level Q, Barrel Roll, and lob a barrel into the the area where the Red Brambleback will spawn at 1:51. This will give it time to ferment and explode for maximum damage at 1:55. Tell your laners to back off after two autoattacks so they can make it to lane in time for the minion waves to meet in the middle of their lane (if they don't take off on their own).

If you are concerned about an invade then kite the Red Brambleback into the bush so neither you nor it are readily visible to invading champions. Smite it when it reaches 390 Health to secure Crest of Cinders and 20% of your maximum health back. If any of the Cinderlings are left, punch them until they are low enough to die from the true damage over time (DOT) from Crest of Cinders or roll a barrel in and pop it to finish them off so you can ge…

How I tried to be the very best.

I used to be made fun of in game. "You're so toxic," "Go KYS," "GG U Flamer," and several other insulting and derogotory remarks. I talked to my League consultant at school, and he told me I needed to first end my sacred virginity. That very day, I tried building up enough confidence to ask the girl I had really liked since 8th grade to homecoming. She had rejected me once already, who knows maybe second time would be the charm. For the next few weeks, I kept *****ing out. Finally I grew some balls and went over to her. I didn't even look at her. "Hey ___, I was wondering if you wanted to go to Homecoming with me." I had probably studdered a solid 3 times. Her response was very ammusing to her. "Sorry, I'm already going with someone." It sucked. I mean it REALLY sucked. How else would I get better at League if I can't get a girl nor talk to one that I had found really attractive. So the next day, I asked my friend Cam if he wanted to go to homecoming with me, but he sai…

Fighting in the EloHell - #13

Status: Bronze V - Position 9 / 58

This seemed already not a good start. I had slot 2 and announced my preferred role as jungle tank.
There was no struggle about it I and chose Nunu. When it came to the picks, we had some unusual selections.
