ELO CLIMB, BAD PLAYERSViews: Nedyarb
I was skarner jungle, singed was top, vlad mid, blitz and ashe bot. 5 minutes in, blitz leaves. I try to gank the lanes, but they're all pushed up. Then vlad gets ganked by shaco and dies. Fair enough, it's early in the game, he hasn't gone back to get wards, whatever. Then he buys a ward, doesn't place it down, and gets ganked again and dies. Ok... maybe shaco was just waiting for him for a while...Vlad then SELLS his ward and buys a pink ward. Then he proceeds to set it down in the middle of the lane. I try to explain to him that it's not going to help at all, but he doesn't listen. Then he gets ganked and the only reason he lived was because I was there to stop shaco.
Fast forward in the game, I've ganked as much as I can, and I'm 5-0-5. Top is 0-6 because he keeps dying to teemo, and I can't gank very often because there are mushroom out the wa-zoo. Mid is 0-6 because he doesn't know how to ward, so I have to ward for him. Bot tower got destroyed, which is understandable. Vlad left, they got baron, GG.
tl;dr I had an essentially perfect jungle, but mid fed 0-6, top fed 0-6, and blitz left the game.
