A LITTLE ABOUT MY MOVES



This, this right here is my first thread about really anything. Never blogged, never made threads further than "looking for friend to play with" or the ever so noobish "which champion should i use in *enter example here*?" so im going to ask for advice, starting with a way to post screenshotted pictures. Little back story. My name is Moves Like Shaco, and yes i believe i got the moves like shaco, got the moves like shaco, i got the mooooooves like shaco. Funny enough i havent played a lot of the demon jester since season 3. I have an addiction to many things, such as marijuana, (i named it first because i clearly have a problem) pepsi, good video games, the Detroit Lions, and a few other things that you'd have to take me out on a date to find out. I havent really tried much ranked, but recently ive found most normals boring and wanted to do draft. My thinking was why not just do ranked draft and attempt a climb.

THE CHAMP POOL, YOU KNOW THE ONES WITH A DIVING BOARD



For the most part use a decent mixture of champs. In order from best to worst. (IMO not stats achieved so far)

Top: Kennen, Fiora, Olaf, Malphite, Zac (have other champs i can play but cant think of in this moment. Jayce is one i just havent used him a decent time)

Mid: Fizz, Syndra, Diana (Well that was shorter than i thought)

Jungle: Skarner, Vi, Eve, Shaco (Have but dont use Voli)

Support: Braum, Naut, Lulu (**** maybe its more of a kiddie pool)

Attack Damage Carry: (****ing "Marksman") Quinn, Vayne, Varus, Draven, Jinx, Ez, Siv (Oh theres where all my water went)

THE STORY SO FAR (AMAZING BAND)



Well, this my friends is a quick but decent look at the previous games ive had in ranked this season, after this ill be posting updates pending on the popularity hopefully containing pictures of my conquest. Currently i sit in promotionals for silver. After going 5-5 in my (too high to remember what theyre called right now. CURSE YOU MARIJUANA!!) first 10 games to determine my placement. (okay i decided to keep this to show my train of thought. I just answered my own question) PLACEMENTS! Regardless i had high hopes after being placed in bronze 1, but then it happened. I went 1-5 in my next 7 ranked games. Killing my drive, my spirit, and my relationship. I recovered from all of it. (okay, maybe not all of it. Stay strong)((i didnt actually lose my girlfriend because of the 1-5 streak. I did however lose my girlfriend, over life stuff(lol?))) over the course of the next 7 games i went 6-1, finally reaching above .500 for the first time since i was 3-2 in my placements.

THOSE 7 GAMES



For right now i'll just write it out for you.
(I'll post screenshots once i find out how to do so.)
Game 7 Champ: Vi. CS: 135. Gold: 14k. K/D/A: 8/6/15. Role: Jungle
Game 6 Champ: Quinn. CS: 180. Gold: 18k. K/D/A: 20/12/13. Role: ADC
Game 5 Champ: Varus. CS: 109. Gold: 10k. K/D/A: 6/4/12. Role: ADC
Game 4 Champ: Zac. CS: 177. Gold: 14k. K/D/A: 8/6/15. Role: Top
Game 3 Champ: Kennen. CS: 141. Gold: 9k. K/D/A: 4/10/1. Role: Top
Game 2 Champ: Diana. CS: 91. Gold: 8k. K/D/A: 5/5/4. Role: Mid
Game 1 Champ: Olaf. CS: 144. Gold: 11k. K/D/A: 9/6/1. Role: Top

QUICK GAMECASTS



Game 7: Early i carried, but knowing my drop off used it to get my teammates fed. Did some things well, but need to work on cs and not ult diving so much. Vi's naturally tankiness helped me rush Tri-Force while i was ahead and that helped me become the target in some teamfights, plus i adc rush hard.

Game 6: Carried the whole way until last 5 minutes. Had three tanks and a lissandra so the damage was nowhere to be found. At one point we were 6.4k gold behind, never having more gold than them until the last push. I MAY HAVE been a little hard on my teammates and i know sometimes i can get a little bm. I prefer mostly bming the other team, mind games and what not. Had the most farm on team but i want more. Using quinn though is my favorite, because shes my favorite.

Game 5: This game i was more carried through. i did decent burst damage while my timetraveling white haired kid banged out life bars. Again, cs is something that needs major work. I cant get to gold and beyond with this kind of cs ********. I cs with less consistency than your drug dealer having weed when you need it. (personally my dudes always out when i need him for last minute) Had some good Varus Ults though, i also hadnt used him in quite sometime, i picked him in a panic.

Game 4: Another panic pick. Went Zac top, but it wasnt my intentions. i inteded for tryn, but the gods had other plans for me on that day. turns our it was amazing. Faced a grags in lane with smite, shut him down and started 7-2-3. I then used my tankiness and general hugeness to be the target in teamfights, which worked perfectly. HAZZAH. GOD SAVE THE QUEEN. Cs needed improvement, however i was leading it mid game, i just started concentrating harshly on teamfights. Ult placement, let a few get away by boucing them the other way. ALSO NEW ZAC SKINS.

Game 3: Awful. Faced a heim top, and he just wiped the floor with me. I needed to cs better, and i waited way too long to get zhonyas. sad say for kennens everywhere. With this i dropped to 3-4 with him, and im now discouraged. might try to find a more carry top, or a more tank top. kept ****ing up my ult.

Game 2: Average by definition. I couldnt really cs, faced karma mid, wasnt expecting that. Got carried hard by a 10-1 Ashe, and a 7-2 Leona. They had a really awful team comp, and we did not also having an amumu and Jayce. Need to improve my mid game, and my mid champion pool.

Game 1: Olaf did what he wanted. Well should i say Brolaf. moar cs, moar double kills. Did well enough top alone to never need a gank which free'd up my jungler to help keep the rest of my team fed. these are the top games i need to do more often. I was also against garen, which i counter picked.

For now thats it. Advice, questions, comments, anything please just give me attention. i wrote a lot and it would suck if no one said anything. I'd love advice and fun stories of your own journey!

so im going to ask for advice, starting with a way to post screenshotted pictures.

There are a few ways to do it but I'll just tell you what I do when I want to post screenshots.
  1. Use PrtSc (print screen) key or a program to capture what's on your screen.
  2. Open Paint (or whatever the equivalent is on a Mac) and use Ctrl+V to paste the image in there.
  3. Save the image to your computer.
  4. Go to imgur.com and upload your image
  5. Take the direct image URL and put it in between [img][/img] tags or like this: [img=URL HERE]

Like I said, this isn't the only method (you could look into gyazo, I hear it's pretty easy to use) but this one works for me.

You can adjust the size of the image like this: [img=URL width=300]
Thanks to Nyoike for the sig!

I'll be watching this, I like your writing style. Looking forward to some screenshots!

Also, next time, don't forget to mention whether you won or lost :P

By the way, instead of using print screen and paint, if you're running Windows Vista or higher you can use Snipping Tool to grab just the end-of-game screen.
********'s a pretty good fertilizer

Best way of getting screenshots is probably a program called ShareX, that's the program I use. There's a hotkey for screenshotting just one window, so it's great for stats screens.

Greenshot is also pretty easy and also uploads the pictures to Imgur.com automatically.

Thanks everyone lots of help, hope you stick around the watch the climb (or failure to if that's the case), I'll grab that when I'm on tonight or tomorrow afternoon to spruce up the place a little bit. I don't want to keep my adoring fan(s) waiting.

You make a valid point. My winning/losing of the game is probably pretty important in theory. So for the 7 that gave you insight to the only one I lost was kennen. Which honestly makes me sad because I thought I was a good kennen in my first 4 ranked with him (went 3-1) only to have those hopes and dreams shattered and thrown out in front of me (0-3 in my next three attempt). Okay I'm being a little dramatic, but without him top, I really don't have a top I go into thinking "I got this" with. Which is probably a confidence thing. Anyways, stay tuned for next couple of games. I'll either be playing tonight for a couple games or tomorrow so stay tuned!

BOOM SCREENSHOT BABY!

This game, i started out so trash i took myself out. No, but really i did not start well against this lux. i believe i was 1-3-3 at the point that team fights started to occur. with a fed siv, i made myself a very noticable jumping fizz and they fell for it everytime. giving me one-two ults multiple times, sometimes id dodged them and made amazing plays (it was me, 3/4ths life, and there was a morg, and lux being real ****s mid lane just after first turret thinking hey, lets double snare that fishy ****, and they did so thusly. With one third health i throw my q, which the morg responds to with spell shield, but im fizz so i say **** that *****, i throw my ult cause i know she dont have a shield, and that chunks half, she flashes for fear of her life, but i e, and w and get two aa's on her with my e. She dies, i begin to run south towards dragon through those bushes, lux pissed ive dodged her ss throws her ignite, and a circle of death that i just narrowly avoid with my e, i run further hiting the second bush just before the single one in river and she ults, with the least amount of time left i just barely make it out her range with less than 100 life. The lux says "Wow", "Gj" while im left in awe at the mess i made), sometimes i made stupid mistakes that left me dead. once i got zhonyas (went lich first) though i pretty much used that to save my life.

Overall for not playing fizz in a long time i did well. I know hes easy, but the plays that were made still made my mouth water and an extremity hard.

Any questions. ON MY WAY TO SILVER GUYS LOOK OUT!

Also is in bad taste to have their names? im new to it and couldn't figure out how to black them out.

It isn't don't worry, there's nothing in that screenshot that we couldn't find through op.gg or similar sites.

Okay so this game a little less complicated. I started out awful, as i seem to do normally, but by mid game had started a comeback. From 1-6-4 i rose through the ranks. i got out csed by a mile by my counter part ashe, and my cs ability seems to be the main thing holding me back. I need to improve if im ever gonna get somewhere! One more win and im in silver which is exciting. The faith in myself and the fact that ill let other people go what lane they want if they honestly believe in themselves are pretty much the reason imo, but i gets the job done. Have yet to be able to use skarner in ranked and it makes me sad. i love me some skar skar skarner.

STAY TUNED MY FAITHFUL READERS!

noticed i cut off the champs i faced.
5hadowblades = Karthus
Bigmang0 = Ashe
punkspawn = diana
xxsoulslayer1xx = yorick
domoroarz = thresh
