I tend to do one, or more, of these each year and never do I complete them or update them properly! So the redemption isn't solely about my game play. Season 1 I went into ranked just a few games after hitting 30, and actually did surprisingly well for a complete noob and in around 20 games I hovered above 1300 elo. Then reset came and I thought I was ready for a real shot at the ladder. Oh did I disappoint! Dropped like a rock to around 700 elo, stopped playing ranked and just rocked normals until I had around 300 wins and went back in. The climb started and at reset I was above 1100 again. Then I became a father, my gaming time fell behind more important parts of my life and often I had to interrupt games due to irl situations with my son. This and a lack of sleep and focus dropped me into bronze 4 when the new ranked system came!

I have been playing sporadically during the last season but never really got anywhere. Sat on BII before reset. Which brings us to the current season!

This is what I am going to do better this season, and some bad habits to stop with:
* play more safe, better to live than kill and die (in most cases)
* stop playing if mad
* reduce the number of champions I play competitively, if I feel like going ad heimer I should go normals!
* focus on farm and not throwing
* do a short list, mental if nothing else, after each game what I could have done better and what I did good

This will be, I think, my champion pool:
Top - GP, Teemo, Trundle, Karma
Mid - Teemo, Gragas, Tristana, Karma
Jungle - Kha, Gragas, Vi, Shyvana
Marksman - Tristana, Jinx, Lucian, Ez
Support - Annie, Thresh, Leona, Karma

(pl0x tell me how to put in champ pictures by the names and I will update)

First 3 games have been played. 2 wins 1 loss.

First game Cait with a leona vs a jinx/thresh lane. We were on par in lane but bot/mid lost and jungler was behind. Toplane renekton flamed a ****load. I know it is all about my performance, but I feel Cait is very dependant on other teammates compared to say Jinx and Tristana. At least how I play them, I have an easier time to carry the team cause I have more synergy with the champ. So when leona always goes in on Thresh I don't feel like I can do much. Of course I can but I am not proficient enough with Cait. Not sure why I picked her over Tristana, but I felt like Cait could give me more lane dominance. I should also have harassed more. Ending 3/4/11 and 306 minions in 46 minutes. Loss.

Second game I now got my new favourite Jinx in botlane, even after nerf! Annie+Jinx vs MF+Thresh. Needless to say they got in a few early harass hits and we were behind in lane in kills, mf was like 7/2 (mostly from Annie and jungler) and I was 1/4/1. Yet somehow I always know I will get back with Jinx in teamfights. Which I did. We were pushed back a bit cause of mf roaming well with her advantage, but that advantage was from Thresh alone, since he was a god with his hooks. Almost never missed one. So MF soon became 7/7 and I started to get fed. Went godlike before the game was over and decent farm. Ending 14/6/17 and 280 minions in 43 minutes. Win.

Third game I did a Hai, which means Teemo mid vs Gragas. I knew I was behind in burst, yet I picked barrier and just farmed. I came ahead in farm with like 20-30 cs quite early and somehow even though gragas hit everything I survived a couple of engages and got a kill or two in lane from jungler. Somehow I never killed gragas, but the bastard is fat so I guess poison don't penetrate enough... xD
It was back and forth alot this game, the throws from both sides was really bad. Until I realised it was no use building any survivability so after Nashors, Lich Bane and Liandrys I went mpen (voidstaff) and then Deathcap which means I did a ****load of damage even to Nasus and Volibear.
After that I started q+aa shotting most of their team, and ended up 18/6/15 and my shrooms were good at disengages and if they stepped on them good for engages. I even melted nasus with ulti on mostly and kept away from Voli. Though I think voli had 4 of 6 kills on me. Finished 18/6/15, 265 farm in 45 minutes. Win.

Should get even better farm. 300 in 40 minutes should be my goal as long as I run a solo lane or adc.

4th game, Ziggs mid vs Kata. Harass her down and play well. Both teams adc don't connect, yet theirs connets a ****load before ours. Which means when our jinx comes to lane she is shat upon. Nasus top (ours) gets shat upon by aatrox top, and amumu tries to gank. Nasus flames after 0/2 and afk, really dc:s on purpose, coming back 10 minutes later to "end game" by selling all, buying wards, putting them in base and then running out to feed. I won lane against kata since I was a bigger threat and farmed more, but it was a losing battle since bot fed, top wasn't there and instead of holding top amumu went jungle farm. Sure loss and we got run over. Ended game 1/2/1 and 148 farm in 22 minutes. BUT I got a loss prevented from the early dc:s so I finally didn't have to cry about the nasus.

No, Karma top works fine. Soaz runs it and I've seen several other run it. GOod sustain, good damage and mobility and survivability.

5th Game. Gangplank top vs WW. Winning early engages, get fb with jungler voli. Survived several ganks by xin and not giving anything away, getting ahead in farm. My son wakes up and starts puking all over his bed. That game lost cause I had to afk 15 mins and my team didn't keep ahead after I went afk.

Edit: so now I am 2:2 with 1 loss forgiven. NOw loading a jungle kha game.

6th game Kha jungle. Had a great start of the game, went ahead in both farm and kills, our team had good lanes. But then suddenly it turned and teamfights started to go in their favour. I could 1v1 all but their kayle even until the end, but then I saw, our Cait had no attackspeed. Bad farm and finished BT and IE and GA before getting attackspeed. So we had no damage from her lategame except a few q.

Add to that I died way too often since we/I didn't provide enough sight so they could bait me. Bad plays, I could ahve carried this.

ok, quick summary!

Had so many trolls and afk:ers in my promo games that I didn't even tryhard. Ended up 4/5 with one loss prevented. Ended up in Bronze V. But the game doesn't want me there.

So basically I'm 11/12 in games total. 4/6 of those in promo with one loss prevented. All other 6 losses except one is from promo games to Bronze IV. Went 3 straight wins after placement, one loss, then 2 wins (so 1 up in promo) then lost 2. Then won one and back into promo. I get 30 lp from winning and lose around 11.

Lost first promo game, then 2nd I pc died and I didn't get it up again in time to participate so I didn't even connect.

Now I just won one and back into promo. Basically I need to do the same in lp games and start to win promo games!

I get ziggs mid, starting fine, but lee never connects and our top nasus hard-feeds shyvana. So we are far behind. Lee reconnects after 15 and I have a good game vs lux mid but their Kha jungle and shyvana is too fed so even though lee does amazing we can't hold it and lose.
