Since everybody else is doing it, I figured, why not?

Previous Ranked Stats:

Season 1: Wasn't here

Season 2:

Starting Rank: Unranked
Ending Ranked: Somewhere around 1150 ELO (somewhere within Silver 3-5 in todays leagues)

Season 3:

Starting Rank: Silver 3
Ending Rank: Platinum 1

Season 4:

Starting Rank: Gold 3
Goal: Diamond 1

Champions:

I switch the roles that I main sometimes, but right now it's top and mid.

Top: Jax, Aatrox, Rengar, Yasuo, Shyvana and maybe Fiora
Mid: Syndra, Fizz, Yasuo, Kha'Zix, Lux, Ahri
Jungle: Vi, Shyvana, Elise and the occasional Volibear or Skarner
ADC: Jinx, Sivir, Vayne, Lucian, Tristana
Support: Thresh, Leona, Janna and thinking of trying out Lulu, Zilean, and Zyra




Will post games afterwards, just wanted to reserve first post for champions and goal purposes. Might make it prettier later. Also, I might try streaming at some point, but if I do, I probably won't talk.

Game 1:




Gonna admit Ahri kinda carried this one. I got counterpicked by Renekton, but went pretty even in lane, then got a kill off of a gank and basically pushed all game. I was at their inhib turret by 21 minutes in, while my team brought them all to dragon and then they surrendered. Easy match.

Game 2:



I don't know why, but Riven always seems like a pretty easy matchup to me. Sometimes it's difficult, but most of the time it's incredibly easy. Elise camped top for me, so I got pretty far ahead, and the other two lanes got ahead and snowballed anyways. I have a ton of deaths for stupidity, but otherwise an extremely easy game.

2-0 in placements.

I do play a lot of champs, but my problem is that about 75% of the time, my best champs are banned. Not because I like to play fotm, I just pick up whatever is fun for me and that I'm good at, which usually happens to be the "best" champs.

I don't know, unless I get like my top 5 champs (1 for each category), I play a lot of secondary champs from time to time. I don't really main any one particular champion. I had 700 ranked games in Season 3 and the most games I played with a single champ was 54, so I guess I just switch a lot.

Usually for those advice or Q&A forums/threads about improving, lots of people talk about having a champ pool of around 2-3 for each role. Idk where I read that though.

@LordKesharq

Yeah, it does keep it fresh.

@Hogopogo

People do usually recommend it, but I just like to have like 3 champs a role, and then most of my champs get banned so I expand it and you get a list like mine.




Game 3



I played like an idiot this game. So, any excuses I make won't change that. However, every single teamfight Fiora, Ryze, and Vi would flash onto me. It took all my willpower not to yell at my screen when they can't kill 2 people on their team when half their team tunnel visions onto me. We ended up losing when Yasuo died again so we had our fifth 4v5 teamfight in a row.


Game 4



I love getting fed 4/1 early game, having Leblanc fed, having bot lane fed, and then every time I go to split push I have 3 people on me at the least. We then tried teamfighting and Leblanc went in front every time so that she got zoned out of the fight, and I was the only one who targeted someone other than Singed. I dunno, like, my score doesn't look great, but what am I supposed to do when I'm the only one going for their ******* carries?

Placements: 2 - 2

Game 5



I got counterpicked by Singed and still managed to win in lane, yet the rest of my team lost super hard. Like, how the hell are we supposed to win when Kassadin has no ****ing clue how to teamfight, Elise misses all her skill shots, and Corki is useless? Also, I can't believe that Kass and Elise were Diamond 5 in Season 3.

Game 6



I was winning in lane against Kennen, which isn't the most favorable matchup, but then Thresh, Sivir, and Elise kept insisting on going "offensive", by diving into the enemy team. When that didn't work, they decided to play "defensive", which didn't work when they're entire team is based off of diving and AoE. I didn't play so amazingly well this game, but it was basically me and Zed vs. their entire team, so we would get like one guy and then everyone died.

Game 7



I did seriously bad this game, and Ryze completely destroyed me top lane. Somehow Ahri stomped Leblanc in lane, and bot and jungle were good, so they just carried me. Not ashamed to say I did absolutely terribly this match.

Game 8



Aatrox wanted top, and he did fine. Everybody else on our team was fine, until our ADC picked Ezreal. This was possibly the worst Ezreal I've ever seen. He played passively, like never going in ever, spammed his mana until he was oom, and kept getting caught by Leona. So, I go to save him, he gets away, then I die. He literally built the lowest damage build I've ever seen; by 15 minutes in Lucian was doing like 6x the amount of damage he did, 30 minutes in Lucian did like 30x the damage Ez did. I mean, I don't wanna shift all the blame on my teammate, but he literally did no damage late game, and we were fighting 4v5 without an ADC.

Game 9



Everything was fine in champ select, I called top, nobody challenged, and then when I go to pick our last pick locks in Olaf. I hastily picked Elise jungle, but I'm a little rusty with her, so I didn't do so well. Ziggs had no idea how to do anything, let alone playing his champion or laning. He ran into every single skill shot he could. Bot lane didn't do so well. I was the only one who was positive the entire game, and it ended with me soloing, I repeat, soloing, Draven and Xerath, and then their team pushed to win.

Game 10



We were winning the entire game, and we decided to baron. It was quite possibly the easiest baron I've ever seen. Pantheon ults in, and Elise missed her Smite. We promptly lost from there. It probably didn't help that Draven got assassinated every fight.

Placements: 3 - 7 = Gold 3




I probably got a worse placement that I could have, but I was honestly done with "Platinum" and "Diamond" players on my team being worse that the Golds on their team. I just figured I would get it out of the way and grind my way back up. It's gonna be a long way back up ...

I'm probably gonna hiatus for like a week or two (if I can stay away from ranked that long), just to get all the people doing placements out of the way.

Joking, got one more.




Game 11




Although I am slightly annoyed at losing, I can honestly say I was satisfied with the way I played. I was winning all game, and I was able to take out either Kayle or Vayne late game, but not both. We lost a couple of teamfights when we didn't kill Vayne and Kayle fast enough, and it got to the point where their team just went for me. At least I can honestly say that I'm not mad at all.
