After getting somewhat used to the new season, I've decided to start my Ranked journey! I haven't played any Ranked Games since Pre-S3 started so I will be starting out with my Elo from the reset.


Summoner name: Demonic Ares
Solo Queue Elo: 1274

Mains:
Top: Lee Sin, Irelia, Wukong
Jungle: Warwick, Hecarim
Mid: Mordekaiser, Ahri, Xerath, Malzahar, Swain, Ziggs, Fizz, LeBlanc
ADC: Caitlyn, Ezreal, Draven
Support: Blitzcrank, Alistar


I don't have Graves or Corki, and I never jungled on Lee Sin before.
Sue me

My goals:
  • Hopefully Gold. Almost got there last season, but got cocky and prideful-> made mistakes-> BAM back to 1274 Elo.
  • I dunno maybe Platinum I wish lol
  • BEST MORDEKAISER NA

Tomorrow I will start my ranked journey!because I just noticed how late it is...
Thanks TinyStar for the amazing sig<3

Tempting offer, but I don't really know. Not that I don't want to, but I'm just going to be pretty busy in the next few days. I'll be on only on for an hour or so in the mornings like 8AM PST. I don't really have a fixed schedule I just get up and play whenever. Sometimes I might be doing chores or errands and suddenly can't do the game. I also have to worry about finishing my guide in time for GMD's guide contest.

My schedule is very unpredictable. Might have to suddenly quit on ya before we start. My friends usually try to get me to play with them, but then I have to do the dishes or whatever. Once I'm done they aren't so I just play a game, and then they finish and I'm not done, so they start a new game, and so on and so on.
My first self made sig ^_^

Good luck DemonSovereign! Never frown, always carry!

It's all a matter of patience and grinding.

Thanks :D
Patience I have. As for tolerance/temper...eh I think none. I will frown if I die and if I can't carry though. If I can't carry it means I'm not Gold worthy! SO I MUST CARRY! >:D or at least try to
I will probably grind a lot. I feel very try hard atm! But I can only start tomorrow so the feeling might be gone by then. If it does, I'll just play ranked when I get it again.

My second game and I have to say... this was the worst match I've ever had for a long time.


Bans
My team: Blitzcrank, Malphite, Shen
Enemy team: Kassadin, Evelynn, Alistar


In champ select, everyone called their roles. Nunu; however, didn't want to mid or support. In the end, everyone had already taken the other roles so he was forced to support. I offered to trade him roles, but he didn't answer. Then after he and I locked in, the enemy picked Irelia. I never played against an Irelia as Lee Sin, so I thought it would be fun. I WAS COMPLETELY WRONG!

Early game, Caitlyn gave Graves FB and soon DCs for ten minutes. I'm doing okay against Irelia. Started out Cloth Armor + five Health Potions, because I never faced an Irelia before on Lee Sin. So I wanted to be safe and I was glad I made that decision. I was farming with no problems at all. Then all of a sudden, once she was level three, she dashed in and tore a chunk of my health. I was surprised, did a few AAs, and backed off. I didn't do much damage to her but she did a lot to me :/

Eventually she just kept guarding the minions and not let me farm. If I did get close, she'd combo me and hurt me a lot. Eventually I just did my Q+W combo for harass, but Irelia kept stunning me before I could W to safety. So I took a bit of damage each time, but so did she. Eventually she backed off and turtled under her tower. I dove her and got a kill. Nocturne came up, but by then I had recall ed and was back at base.

Meanwhile at bot, Nunu was having a hard time facing Graves and Taric since Caitlyn DCed. As for mid, Lux got two kills off Twisted Fate. Udyr was helping bot and mid the best he could. He didn't have much time to go top.

I was doing okay so I knew it was more important for him to help the other lanes. I got back to my lane and Irelia was there farming a lot with her Q. I tried to farm, but now she did even more damage to me. So she zoned me out again. This time I asked Udyr for a gank. He came and waited in the top river bush. I told him there was a ward in the river bush and right after I told him he just charged at Irelia. The gank failed, but I got to farm a little more. After the gank failed he went to steal the mini golem camp. Lux came up to gank top and spotted Udyr, so he ran. Irelia went to help Lux and I went to help Udyr. Lux was on a killing spree so I targeted and pinged her, but Udyr focused Irelia who didn't even have a kill. So I switched to target Irelia because splitting focus was a bad idea. Lux and Irelia continued focusing Udyr and killed him. Then Lux blasted me with her laser, and Irelia finished me off.

So the game continued and I couldn't farm because of Irelia. Nocturne tried ganking me top but failed. He didn't even bother coming top anymore because Irelia was doing great against me.

So it's about ten minutes into the game and Caitlyn finally reconnects. She apologizes and the game continues. Later on, a teamfight at Dragon broke out when I just got back to my lane. Twisted Fate got his first kill, Udyr got some kills, and Caitlyn and Nunu got some assists. Lux, Graves, and Nocturne got more fed. I should have been there too, but it ended pretty fast. Stepped into the river and it was already over.

Near the end, there was one last teamfight at the mid inhibitor turret. Most of the enemy team had out leveled us so we were at a huge disadvantage. They dove the turret all killed the rest of my team. I barely survived with 40hp and went back to base. We didn't get a single kill, because everyone was focusing a different person. I pinged Lux and Graves who were right behind Irelia but they didn't focus them. Instead they focused Nocturne, Irelia, and Taric.

After healing up, the enemy was at our nexus turrets. I tried my best to defend, but it was 1v5. They dove me and Lux lasered me to finish me off. After a few seconds, they ran out of minions to take the turret aggro so they recall ed. In the end, my team and I surrendered because of how poorly we were doing.

Overall, my worst game as Lee Sin. My CS was pathetic! I got less gold than the Caitlyn who afk'ed for ten minutes >.> I wish I never face an Irelia on Lee Sin ever again! Still I should have farmed better. I should have also predicted where the teamfights would occur so I would be there instead of being all the way at top when they start. How do I counter Irelia as Lee Sin? D:

I'd say Irelia isn't a great matchup for Lee, but that's mainly because she scales better into late game and therefore you have to beat her (significantly) in the laning phase before you reach level 8-9. The fact that she was able to zone you at level 3 is something I honestly don't understand as Lee Sin is one of the strongest solo top champs in terms of trading around level 3. I think you just let her surprise you instead of immediately countering with Q + E while shielding some of her damage with W, because if Lee uses all his abilities he should come out on top imo.

Thanks to MissMaw for the signature!

Ah so that's what I should have done. After I killed her(once I reached level 3), she got back to her lane fairly quickly. Nocturne was stealing wolves so I went to help out Udyr. When Nocturne got away with the help of Lux, I went back to my lane and Irelia was already up by 30 CS or more(a huge minion wave was left after my first kill on Irelia). I continued to do my Q and W harass combo, so my shield was always down when she combo'd me. I should have just switched tactics and saved it to shield the damage. She always surprised me by using Bladesurge to a minion near me then do her combo. True damage hurts! I guess I wasn't used to switching up my game play since it worked so well with other opponents. But for Irelia I just received more damage than I did to her. I feel stupid for not adjusting >.<

Edit: It was about level eight or so when she started to zone me out. I also maxed Q first like I normally do, but I probably should have maxed W first.

Bans
My team: Evelynn, Elise, Malphite
Enemy team: Shen, Amumu, Blitzcrank

Top: Jax vs Renekton
Jungle: Hecarim(me) vs Riven
Mid: Jayce vs Irelia
Bot: Caitlyn & Lulu vs Ezreal & Nami


Meh... I didn't do much in this game. I got Jax, Jayce, and Caitlyn fed early game with a few ganks. After that they just crushed the enemy team. They even started teamfights without me lol.
If I did get to join in on the fight, I died after several seconds of tanking everything. The enemy focused me every time a teamfight started. I died and didn't get to do much damage so I was sad, but it was good that the enemy team focused me instead of my teammates. The enemy team split up a lot so Rampage wasn't very effective, the AoE from Iceborn Gauntlet wasn't very useful, and Onslaught of Shadows only hit one or two champs at the center. that made me sad too, but whatever. They decided to finish off the enemy nexus without me too. I felt left out :c

(a huge minion wave was left after my first kill on Irelia).


You should consider why this happened since this means you must've messed up somewhere with controlling the minions.

Also g'luck. :P
