Morde wasn't banned :(

What I Know
Remember earlier how I said something like, "It's okay to pick support even if someone else has called it?" Well, I didn't do this :( I thought I could pick WW safely, as the CC on our team should lock them down.

What I Want to Know
Which champions beat Caitlyn? Because it sure isn't Vayne. Soraka was a nightmare again.

What I Learnt
Burning Summoner Spells in a gank is enough. I went bot at level 4 and burned Blitz and Sivir Flash. Decided to pretend I'd left and go in again. By then enemy mid had come bot and top TP'd down. It was a disaster. I need to know when to leave.
Never buy anything other than Devourer on WW. I was really behind due to bot lane skirmish and thought I wouldn't be able to get Sated in a timely manner. Wrong. Just get it. WW has absolutely no damage otherwise. It was pretty sad to be a "stun bot" for the rest of the game. Lesson learnt.

What I Know
They've got a lot of burst, so I should grab Locket early. Also going to need to upgrade Trinket ASAP against Rengar.
Two shields bot lane, we should be fine! :D

What I Want to Know
Wow. This is probably the first game I've ever played where enemy Blitz took knock up first. I know I've thought about it and I've read about it, but never seen it. Blitz also started with a Sapphire Crystal. They got a double kill bot lane, First Blood before we hit level 2. I think it was something like Blitz was off level 2 by one minion and went in with E, got level 2 after killing Sivir and just hit me with Q as I flashed away. Worst feeling ever. So judging by this, Mana Crystal + E first on Blitz is a good idea?

What I Learnt
Due to above, Sivir and I were severely behind, pushed to second turret and scared to go any further. But no one flamed and I stuck by her and we got through it. Just because one lane fails miserably, doesn't mean we can't win.
I had too many actives that game. I can micro-manage 3. 4 is too many. I found I was spamming 1234 in lategame fights, to ally detriment. It meant I wasn't shielding early enough or using my other abilities. That game I didn't really need Mikael's.

Promos for Plat :) Sitting on 43 wins, 25 losses. I'm hoping to get Plat tomorrow, though if I don't, I still have Monday and Tuesday afternoon. Picked up Soraka for the last two games. Ha, she's pretty fun.

Just thought I'd update this thread ^^ I got placed in Plat V when the season started. Currently 7/5, w/l. Going to try and play a few ranked games on the weekend ^^ Latest game below.

By your LP and w/l ratio I can see that you went 5/5 in placements. And iirc you ended up Plat V close to the end of season. Given the amount of friends that went 7/3 yet ended up lower than last year I don't see how you got placed so high.

I went 6W/4L in placements, and got placed in plat 1, despite ending last season in diamond 4.
It could be that jai's MMR was exceptionally high for her rank.
I haven't checked on her past games this season, but the order of her wins and losses during her placements matters as well. Going W/W/W/W/W/L/L/L/L/L is better than going L/L/L/L/L/W/W/W/W/W
If I helped you out, be sure to throw me a +Rep!
