Current Progress


Wins: 39
Losses: 33
Gold IV

So I'm going to be making a log of my ranked adventure this season - unfortunately, it will not be starting from game 1, as I've already played a couple of matches. Instead, I'm starting from when I hit 1600.

Rather than make it here, I've decided to make it as a Tumblr blog, for several reasons:
  • Free image hosting, neat photoset capabilities, no need to hyperlink
  • Tag system allows anyone to sort by champion, by win/loss, by what ELO range the game is played in, and by role.
  • Archive system is easier to go through than on MOBAFire
  • Each post here will be much smaller due to it being a hyperlink to the corresponding Tumblr page
  • I'm greedy for Tumblr followers

With that being said, the blog can be found at diamondpls.tumblr.com and features recaps of my ranked games with my commentary attached. The blog is very educational and has a section at the end about what I think my team did well, what we didn't do well, and how I built my champion.

You could just... copy and paste the images and such. Personally I'm too lazy to follow a blog outside MobaFire, but maybe others won't be :)

Actually, the most attractive part of the Tumblr blog isn't the image hosting but the filtering system and how easily you can search by tag. I'll be updating this thread with whatever the other blog updates as well, so no worries there. However, I won't be posting the contents of the update, just a hyperlink to it.

Thanks!

Just played two more games - one loss and one win. I'm still struggling with Irelia vs. Jax, but on the bright side, I dominated in my first game playing Olaf.

I can see how Jax is a hard matchup, I can see how Darius is one (hate that guy >.>), I agree Olaf isn't all that hard (or at least Irelia starts winning lane hard at level 8 or so), but why would Singed be tough? o_o
I've had more people tell me that but I've never really had trouble with the matchup (despite playing it against players of my level or players with higher elo than me quite often by now)..

Jax is kinda even,
a mediocre jax wins vs a mediocre irelia,
so does a bad jax vs a bad irelia
but I'd say a good irelia wins vs a good jax :P

dunno about singed - just camp him early and don't allow him to come back into the game :D

^ wasn't even talking about having to own him early, honestly I feel Irelia even wins if you farm and start playing aggressively after getting some levels. As said though, that's just from my experience. I'm not saying I met pro Singed players, but I'm not a pro Irelia player either so... :P

Jax completely outscales Irelia. If you try to trade with your W, he dodges your true damage. His burst is higher and past 6 he's nearly impossible to trade with one on one. It's technically a skill matchup, but if both players are equally skilled then Jax inherently has an advantage because his kit is extremely effective against Irelia. You can win if you're aggressive early, so that's what I'm trying to master.

Singed is an annoying matchup because if you can beat him early, you crush him for the rest of the laning phase - but if you go even with him, you just can't kill him anymore and he can dive you at your turret with his jungler's help or simply ignore you and farm past your turret. He's definitely much easier to take on before level 9 or so, but once he gets a Catalyst it becomes substantially more difficult to lane against him.
