kinda feel like I should give Nami a rest for the moment. Not exactly having the greatest luck with her.

I wanted to use lolking for this, but they're not updated for s5 yet.

Things I did right:
  • Good disengages
  • When Rengar acted really apprehensive (in champion select) about being top lane against Lissandra I suggested he just switch roles with our Maokai because I thought Maokai could probably just ignore her early game. Not sure if I'm actually right about that, but they both thanked me for the great suggestion. Apparently sounding confident that something will work out is good enough to give other people the idea it'll work out too.
  • Overall really nice teammates (super positive, even though there were mistakes made), I enjoyed this match a lot.
Areas where improvement is needed:
  • Not amazing vision control, could have turned it up a notch, but got lazy because the enemy team had no vision anyways.
notes:
  • 27 lp for a win. Not bad.

Things I did right:
  • Clutch heals. So much so that Ashe thanked me several times for it
  • Ok, now I feel like I actually had good vision control.
  • My positive attitude kept my allies positive! Also Ashe took my advice for some strange reason.
Areas where improvement is needed:
  • Need to time Exhaust better. It was usually good enough to just silence Fiora, but a couple times getting the Exhaust on her would have nullified a lot of damage from her ult.
  • Really was feeling the lack of CC, probably should have played Braum like I was going to originally.
notes:
  • 28 lp for a win. Also not bad.
  • Yes, my friends, that is an AD Bruiser LeBlanc. They were mad Veigar took mid and decided to "troll"...unfortunately for said LeBlanc, Fiora fed it.

Spirit Visage on a build with 0 sustain. Legit.

Clearly it was because of me, I mean who needs to buy sustain when you have a Soraka. 8D I should feel special or something.

Things I did right: Areas where improvement is needed:
  • Got lazy with my vision control
  • Didn't swap my masteries fast enough and ended up with Braum masteries instead of offensive ones.
after watching the replay:
  • using CC on hourglass'd targets is pointless, need to time things better or pay more attention in teamfights.
  • couple of stupid dives and times where I was trying to be frontline as glass cannon Zyra handed a free kill to the enemy.
notes:
  • 29 lp for a win. sweeeet.
  • Zyra is fun and I seem to have magically gotten better by not playing her.
  • People in this elo waste so much time. We could have ended the game about 7 minutes earlier except Amumu left to solo a dragon. Then when we could just end it they chased the Nami around for 10-15 seconds while I (dead at the time from turret aggro + Vladimir ult) pinged the nexus and told them to "ignore her and end the game already" multiple times.
  • I've been rushing Morellonomicon after Sightstone, is that ok or should I be rushing Liandry's Anguish?

They didn't have any tanks, so I'd go Mrellos.

Basically MOBAFire.

Anyway, when I was placed in Silver IV last season my MMR still turned out to be a good bit higher, I'm assuming that might be the case for you too.

Called it. Keep it up! :)

Thanks to Hoppermh for the signature!

so, D. none of the above.
thanks!

That's not why I'd rush either of them. It's just that omnomnomicon is less expensive, gives nice chunk of AP, and lowers the CD on Stranglethorns by a fair amount.

You did, it's true. I'll continue to do the best I can.

Also this is right up there with me telling Nick last night that I felt like I'd magically gotten better at the game by not doing anything and him being like "you mean you can't put two and two together on this?" (I moved and instantly had a much more positive outlook on everything).


Unrelated: I swapped Nami for Soraka for the time being. I feel like I can pretty much deal with anything Nami can between Janna and Soraka and I'm having better luck with both of them atm.
