Season 3 Personal Reflections-My journey to Gold

Alright, this is my first blog post, and it's gonna be a average length one. I hope it doesn't get delisted by stupid troll blogs which are basically no-pointers saying something about their random team or just asfsafasd and done. At the start of the season(the end of season 2), I was 850 elo(peak 1222, so I got silver border), and I think I may even be lower than that. Now, I'm Gold 3, and getting myself a Victorious Elise skin. This will be a pretty big summary of what happened in my climb during Season 3.

I had 3 goals in Season 3:
1. Hit Gold
2. Improve as a player
3. Have fun

Start of Season: 10 Provisional Matches.



All I remember was that I used to be a top main, which I eventually found out to be my worst role. The elo of people in the Garena server was absolutely HORRENDOUS at the end of season 2, with like the 100th top ranked person having around 1650 elo if I'm not wrong.

I won 5 games and lost 4 going into my 10th provisional match. I didn't do that wel…

Philosopher's Stone and Gold/10 Controversy

I've never questioned my Starter Items and Core Items in my guides, but apparently some people do. No matter how I tried to explain why I prefer my way, all I get is comments like:

"Your argument is invalid."
"As a 1# guide on MobaFire you should teach people to play in the right way."

I get the sub-potential point, but this has been bugging me so I did some calculations on my own to prove my point why my way of starting with Rejuvenation Bead+ Faerie Charm+2x Sight Wards isn't any worse than the more popular 3x Sight Wards + 2

Hello everyone I'm New to mobafire and wanted to...

My name is jimmy. My occupation is the Marine Corps. I have been playing league off and on for the past couple of months but I am getting into it alot more now. I have a live stream up now the link is www.twitch.tv/clutchtilltheend It would be awesome if you watched some of my videos sometime and left me a little feedback and get my name out there a little bit. I usually play with my irl friends from back home. I'm from kentucky but now stationed in North carolina.

Now to tell you a little more about me and league. I main udyr thats why i have the expensive skin for him. I usually mess around with a few different champs off and on so i dont get bored of him. I usually am on around 2100 EST and sometimes before that even but thats when im for sure on every night.

I also have my own vent server if you'd like to talk and get to know each other and fo…

The dive into nubness...

As a new member of MOBAFire...I thought I would introduce myself through my blog. Here I will share my thoughts about League as well as various other things mostly revolving around League. I am still relatively new to League and am only level 25. I understand the meta and stuff but some stuff I still don't understand.

To be brief...I am a college student who enjoys gaming when I have free time. I don't take playing League extremely serious. I do enjoy winning...but at no means do I see myself wanting to compete in the LCS at any point in my life. Moving on to the actual game and stuff now.

The lane that I like to play is Top. I don't know why but I do. Probably because a lot of champions that go Top are tanky and beefy so it allows me to die slower than say a glass cannon type of champion. My first Champion I really liked was Cho'Gath. When I didn't really understand the game and I went against the AI...he would use his Rupture and then you would be knocked up. I thought that was …

Tommy's Taric Guide: A Mobafire Bedtime Story

Let's say that little Tommy makes a Taric guide. Yay for Tommy! After his initial 20 votes, he comes out with a score of 72% and it's displayed as #5 on the list of Taric guides. Not bad for his first guide.

Over the course of a few months, the people who hold the #1 = #4 Taric guides grow disinterested in maintaining their guides. They archive, or they don't update so they expire and get hidden by the freshness filter.

However, all of this time, little Tommy has been updating his guide and maintaining it. And since the other 4 abandoned their guides, he is now #1. Tommy is, of course, elated! He went from being #5 to being #1! And so, as the top rated guide, new players in search of Taric guides would instantly go to his guide as it was top ranked, use it, and vote on it. Before long, Tommy had a 90%!

Then one day a user named SirThroatLaggerJoxVynMawJan3100D dropped by and told little Tommy, "Son, your **** sucks." Little Tommy was upset. Surely he had reached #1 because his guide…

That is what I could think of so far, if you feel something is missing or should be changed, post it down below so I can add it/change it :3
Also, I was thinking, due to the low activity in the bananawards, to throw the nomination open for a significant longer time. This would mean that I could open the nomination this week or the next one, and that people have the time till the start of 2014, making it…

What is the point of League anyway?

Somebody asked what the point of playing League was when it wouldn't matter in ten years anyway, if she was just going to be stuck in Silver anyway and not have fun playing.

This was my response to her.

"You have accepted the first important step to the equation. By recognizing that you are not the greatest player, you have acknowledged that there is room to improve and room to learn. You also humble yourself and take away the expectations to perform at a high level because really you know you aren't yet.

Now you can start to have fun with it while you learn. You can take your losses for what they are. Learning experiences, opportunities to improve yourself.

And, you can take your wins in that way too, because you will know that you did well, but you could have done better too.

The thing about League is that it has a pretty huge learning curve, so time invested will almost always pay out in Elo gains if you have the right mindset and try to learn and improve.

What does League mat…
