Recently I have decided to jump into the thick of it, and by it, I mean Ranked. My first ranked game was when I first hit 30, before I knew that was well... a bad idea. Needless to say, but I'll say it anyway, I got stomped, hard. Now I'm back as a more experienced, more versatile player, and it's about time I give it another try.

Since I have a screenshot for it and the match is fresh in my mind, I'll start with

GAME 3: Victory

BANS: Shen, morganna, Alistar, Kassadin, Darius

Summery: One person wants to ban Karthus^^, but majority rules, and Alistar is banned instead.
I pick Malphite as jungler, but then our last pick doesn't want to support, I go bot instead, the nice guy that I am. Teemo is afk the entire match, he only died because Draven ulted their base. I'm zoneing Garen bot really well, then I end up getting first blood. The game is pretty even at that point, But, slowly the enemy pulls ahead, as Udyr is feeding, and Karthus is getting fed. Riven leaves the game, and we get a tower advantage, but Karthus is pretty fed by now, and we don't get MR until too late. As it is a 5v3, we do start to pull ahead tower wise, but the kill and gold gap continues to increase. We'd push a little farther in, then they'd demolish all but one of us. they can't take advantage of that because they were trapped inside their base defending, and eventually we take the nexus.

Thanks to DuskToGlory for the sigs. LOL :)

If they have Karthus and is 4y,win before 10 mins so you don't get any ugly surprises. Could have been Draven going afk and not riven ;p
If you for some reason want to follow my ranked journey to gold, you can do it Here.

I am against asking for rep, only rep me if you think I contributed well or said something wise.

Ok now I'm pissed at myself and other people

Game 3 -Defeat
Bans: Heimerdinger, Darius, Shen, Morgana, Karthus, Shaco

Summery: I finally get a chance at going top, naturally I go Pantheon as he is my favorite champ and I rarely lose with him. we invade and take their red, then head to lanes. I lag out and end up giving first blood to Olaf, I can't seem to recover, and the others are blaming everything on me for feeding olaf, ofc this doesn't help as I get more flustered and proceed to make more mistakes. everyone gives up, blames me, then we surrender.

I finally get to play what I want, and then I **** it up.

Exactly my thought.
Seems popular. Maybe I should
Make my own too, just to troll.

Anyhow, good luck. Malphite rocks.
Pun intended.

OK, so I'm an idiot and forgot to take screens of my next two games.

Game 5: Defeat
Bans: I don't remember, but there were some strange bans
Summary: Lane phase went sub-par, Ahri couldn't shut their Karthus down early, Warwick kept over extending top lane then getting ganked by Diana, me and Volibear had little to no coordination, we couldn't do anything without Olaf's ganks. when it came down to the teamfight stage, it was a trainwreak,. people were getting caught out of position, Ezreal and Karthus got fed, our team was basically all over the place. it kind of just fell apart.

Game 6: Victory
Bans: I don't remember but they were pretty basic bans
Summary: Immediately Our jungler Nautilus(apparently he was smurfing to raise someone elses elo) took charge, he strongly suggested we all bring good cc, which we did. Garen shut down Mordekaiser top, Teemo was holding his own against Annie mid. Varus was strong and aggressive making my job as support Leona quite easy, and with great ganks by Nautilus we easily beat Ezreal and Xerath bot lane. we grabbed Dragon often. Overall our team was really coordinated, there were some times where we were not altogether but still did quite well. at the end we were able to storm their base easily to take the nexus.

Current Elo: 1133

I'm thinking of getting lol replay so i don't have to do the summaries off the top of my head.

My current elo goal is, at the end of 20 ranked games, is to have kept or improved on my current elo.

Thanks for the support so far guys.
