Sssssoooo, i decided to start a ranked thread (how original!). I will try to post each and every game i play, along with a few details about it.

Last season i didn't really have a goal, i was just playing ranked for the hell of it, treating it pretty much like normal draft, and finishing with 1172 elo.

This season my goals are:
- Get to 1500 if possible, otherwise as high as i can.
- If i reach 1500 relatively easily, raise the bar by 100 elo. Repeat when/if new goal is reached.
- Improve my map awareness and positioning.
- Learn the flow of the lanes, how to freeze, how to trade effectively, et cetera.
- Get a deep knowledge of the jungle.
- Understand what counters what and why.

Of course, many of these can be achieved in normals too, but ranked is a completely different environment.

I will play Top, Mid, Jungle and Support, only picking up ADC if i have no other choice, or if i become comfortable enough with the role.


Champions i will use most often:
- Singed (top)
- Cho'Gath (top/jungle)
- Lee Sin (jungle)
- Rumble (top)
- Katarina (mid)
- Shen (top/support/jungle)
- Taric (support)
- Nunu (support)
Of course i can play tons more, but these are my standard ones.



Champions i need to learn:
- Irelia
- Janna
- Vayne
- Dr. Mundo
- Leona
- Jax
- Malphite
- Maokai

Wards win games. Stuff this sentence in your brain and never forget it as long as you are playing LoL.

Game 7: Victory


They picked katarina, so i decided, you know what, Malz is a pretty good counter. My dear old malzahar. How much i missed you.
Anyway, game started bad, with Ezreal disconnecting for a couple of minutes, and me dying twice to a jax gank. All lanes were losing, but not too much; as soon as we started moving as a team, we crushed them, and it was obvious they were very disorganised. I caught some of them all alone in the jungle, and, well, Malz kinda annihilates almost everyone 1v1. In the teamfights, i just used Q+W on everyone, and then ulted Jax or Khazix, who were the biggest threats. My farm wasn't what i was hoping it would be, but after almost 3 months of not playing Malzahar, his AA animation looked really slow, and i couldn't lasthit aeffectively. Also, i LOVE Morellonomicon.

That's it for now, maybe i'll play another one later today.

Current rating: 1319.

Game 8: Victory



After playing a normal where i pretty much destroyed everything, i was in a good mood, so i decided to play a ranked.



I didn't pay attention to the bans, but it was pretty standard stuff; i think Malph, Diana, Amumu, Morgana, that sort.
Anyway, Everyone calls a lane and i'm left with either ADC or support, so, Blitzcrank it is.
Our team:
-Riven top
-Kassadin mid
-Jarvan jungle
-Blitz (me) and Teemo bot.

I was kind of confused about the teemo pick, but i think he had no ADCs among his champions. Oh well. Their team was even weirder.

-Shaco + Alistar top (i guess they wanted Blitz, but i got it first)
-Ziggs mid
-GP + Draven bot.

Me and teemo lost bot pretty hard, since we were getting poked a lot and couldn't go all in either.
However, Jarvan did a great job and snowballed the other lanes, meaning Teemo's non-existent damage wasn't much of an issue.
The enemy team flamed Shaco and Alistar a lot, since they had failed to do what they expected (lots and lots of kills on Riven through headbut-->JitB), and overall they were pretty disorganised. We weren't much of a "team" either, but Kassadin was like 25/1, and jarvan was 7/1/32, so it didn't even matter.

New elo: 1357.
