Ok time to update my ranked climb for the first time in almost a year. This was the first ranked game I played since forever ago. I probably wouldn't post this, but it has an interesting story to it that should outline a few good habits that people should get into.
It started (as always) in champ select. I banned the usuals, but Shen got through. A guy on my team told me he'd swap me for shen so I grabbed him, and the other guy grabbed Akali for me. It then occurred to the man that he did not own Shen. As you can imagine that was quite the ****up to make as it was my first promotion game.
I could have gotten mad (as is my style), but instead I tried to try out the DST. The DST is simple. Always compliment people, and try to stay positive. So I calmly said it was all fine, and we'd just switch our intended roles. At the beginning of the game it looked pretty grim, as the Akali fed Lissandra pretty hard. Still I kept a positive outlook. I told our jungler to camp my lane as I no…
