Alright, I'm certainly done for today. Full team of S3 Diamonds, losing their lanes hardcore. I need to stop stressing the fact that certain of my teamates are S3 Diamond players, but *******, it's hard not to with performances like that. LeBlanc was the only person to do well, and even then, she was talking all game.

For the note, Roselight here from MOBAFire was the enemy Lulu. Wish I would'a been queued with her instead of against. Goddarn Lulu pick! >:C
Not that that decided the game in any way, shape or form, but yeah. She did well none the less.
So did the enemy Nidalee as well of course. Our Dr. Mundo continuously died in top lane alone against her. I ponder how and why, but those are part of the secrets of Diamond level play, surely. I have yet to learn the secrets.

Overall, I don't have much more to say. And overall poor performance from my team, and what I attempted didn't work out well, however didn't go bad in the sense that I lost us the game. All lanes but mid lane losing, and losing hard, made it quite difficult to creep out of that game with a victory.

Ah, a little comeback with Vi right there. C:
Raises my confidence and self-belief a little bit, I have to say. Losses tend to have a pretty heavy negative effect on me, and thus I haven't been feeling good about my many past games, but this one brought back some belief in getting the job done, so to speak.

I'm not too sure what to say about this game, other than the fact that it went more or less perfectly for me personally. My teammates were dying a bit here and there, due to the overextending that tends to take place when one's teammates are fed.

Gragas asked for me to gank mid early for an easy kill, however once I was done with Red and Blue buff, opting to gank for him, he had pushed so much that there was no way to gank. He then followed said pushing up with getting the firstblood on Brand. I figure that's just about alright, so I went ahead and ganked elsewhere.

Bottom lane was the lane in the most need of my help, and thus I went there several times, and - during laning phase at least - I don't think I was ever there without getting a double kill... xD
Yeah.. As my scoreline suggests, I was performing way above par as what was necessary, but I guess the enemies were just having a bad day in collaboration with me feeling optimistic heading into the game (Having gotten to firstpick Vi).

Now, one might suggest that playing Vi really isn't that difficult, and to a certain point (Basically agreeing), I agree, but that doesn't change the fact that I really do it well in any case. I am quite fond of my Vi W/L, and I plan to keep being fond of it, as I practically main her by now (Playing her as often as ranked circumstances allows it). I definitely feel that she's getting banned more often in high Plat/Diamond than she was in my placement and the road through Plat prior to Plat II & I. That doesn't mean that there are no exceptions though~


Perhaps I'll take another game today, and the course of that game may even decide whether I dig into an eventual promotion series. I hate to say these things though, because every time I consider the chances of getting into promotion, I seem to lose my next game, regardless of doing something in between each game or not. :C

Well I'm definitely done for today...
Firstly, I made the mistake of leaving Vi open, hoping against the odds to get a hold of her despite being purple side. Silly mistake, but it's fine. I took Jarvan IV and figured to just do my best.

Now the issue in this game is the following:
Nothing. Except...
Our Riven...
I cannot grasp how many times she died alone in top lane, and due to Vi focusing her efforts in the bottom side of the area, I had to constantly be on guard in this regard, and we also secured the first Dragon etc. Things were a-okay.
Problem was that the enemy Shyvana was 4/0/0 from top lane, and then had pushed out her top lane and went to roam. This was when we were fighting the enemy team 4v4, and then she showed up and got 2 additional kills, on top of already being pretty strong.
As you can tell by her final score, she absolutely 100 % carried the nugget out of that game...

Upon some blame landing on top of Riven (Including my distraught of her having gotten Diamond through play Riven at the least...), she did manage to gently inform us, that it was all because she was "so stoned".
Now then, if the person would just apoligize and say they're having a bad game, I wouldn't think twice about it, but freaking hell. This game was literally ruined for the rest of us, because of this one selfish bash-turd.
That, I cannot forgive. I really don't enjoy the fact that this one person can straight up get crooked, start a game, practically with the intention or at least knowledge that he'll straight-up destroy the fun of whoever he gets matched up with. *******.

Ah well. End of rant. Yet again I have dramatically failed to get into Diamond promotion, and thus my MMR never ceases to slowly drop lower and lower, since my W/L gap (%) is getting smaller and smaller. I shan't wonder twice about it if I'm down to 21-22 LP per win next win, meaning I currently stand needing 2 wins for Diamond promos.
I need to stop thinking about how far away I am from getting into the promo, but that's clearly proving difficult for me.

Thank you for the encouraging words, Nera...
;_;



However, as you can see, they did not apply strongly in this particular game.

Now this game. This game was full of ugh. The only S3 Diamond player on our team (Again, sorry for caring so much about this, but really...) was our ADC, Quinn. I was yet again lastpick (It seems I'm either first or lastpick only, lately... I prefer middle-pick xD), and said I'd fill. Enemy team firstpicked Thresh. Love the world and its miracles...
I picked Leona as the only viable option in my book, up against a Thresh.
Our Quinn though. Hot damn. The enemies reached level 2 before us, and Quinn just goes straight up and gets Flayed by Thresh, and then hooked to follow. Bam, 20 % health, and from then on, we were having a pretty miserable time, getting poked at while trying to farm under turret.
Thing is, we actually managed to get by alright, and our team was meanwhile 3/0.
But then Quinn decided that that was enough of an advantage, and decided to get Flay and hooked yet again, and this time died as a result. Only she gets herself caught, there's literally nothing I could do. Stun the Sivir? Did it, but that doesn't change the fact that Quinn dies.

Now overall, Quinn did this 3 times in lane, walking too close or lasthitting mindlessly as Thresh walks up to her. When she wasn't getting caught, we were just getting slowly pecked down by Sivir's Q and Thresh AA's.

The game was 12/12 or so, in midgame, in teamscore, but the picks that the enemy team secured proved far stronger than ours. In particular, their Xerath seemed to have grasped the idea of his new ultimate really well. He placed every single one of his shots impeccably, every time that I saw it, at least.

Later in the game, every single fight started with a Thresh hook, and I don't think we ever actually full-on fought. I was foolish enough to sometimes want to go in to counter-engage or save the person who got hooked, but the 3 other members of our team never wanted to. We never had a real 5v5 fight because of this, so maybe we could have been stronger.
Jax was a highlight in our team, and could dish out amazing damage, but then there was kiting and crowd control to deal with him, and a few of our skirmishes around the map unfortunately went in the enemy team's favor.

Quinn and I heard from our Lee Sin literally about 5 times that "sorry, but bot you are really bad", so that's always encouraging, especially when the main reason for my poor play, came from people getting hooked out of position carelessly. Mweh.
I should never play support, and I always call that I'll fill if I'm lastpick. I need to try to feed the support role away to someone else, but I never even try, because I want to keep the team mojo and feeling-good upright, and not cause a stir, but the truth is that I am a horrible support, and only do well if my ADC does well. I don't know how to act when teammates around me perform badly. I just get frustrated and watch them die, instead of applying upfront pressure in lane, for example, which may have prevented Quinn getting caught out as much in lane.
This behaviour still wouldn't have prevented all the fights starting with hooks though.

I was also critisized for my ward control. I don't see how I can have great vision control when my lane is so far behind, and I am underleveled, meaning I needed to catch up in levels, by staying in lane. I pretty much only kept vision in the nearest area around us, which did mean we did not oftenly get surprise ganked, but on the other hand, we lost the 2v2's themselves (by getting caught). Certainly, Thresh knew what he was doing, but I just wish I would at least have played the ADC role instead. I know how to avoid getting caught at least, which this S3 Diamond Quinn clearly had no feeling for what so ever. I don't even know.

That's it. I'm done for today for sure. I hope.
I've gotten on tilt, and it's only 3 PM, on a free day of mine. GG. All hope lost. I'll have to try to distract myself with everything else in the world that isn't League of Legends, because if I keep on playing, I will surely lose all of my points in Plat I, as well as my entire gathering of awesome MMR.

I feel like every little scrapple of fortunacy I've been blessed with throughout this run has completely left me. I'm being matched with utterly not-good players, for instance this Lulu who says she can only really play mid, and then goes ahead and does so terribly. Well done I say.
I ended up with a support Jarvan IV because of some weird bug, but from normal game killlanes I know that it can work out alright, so I was okay heading into the game really.
We even got firstblood as a result of Jarvan's offensive playstyle, but hell if not everything went wrong post-laning.

I am done. I won't describe the rest. The scorelines say it all. I wasn't able to do a thing, and the enemies were rolling sushi rolls calmly, and we were the ingredients.

Goodbye for, hopefully, a few days. I need my mind set straight. Freaking sucks that we're heading into the weekend right now. I probably won't be able to keep away from ranked, despite these words, and even now, I'm promising myself that I won't stay away from them...
Geezus.

There's no need to take a break for several days, but if you're on tilt just stop for now. Distract yourself with another game/hobby for a while, join some inhouses or play some normals tonight if you feel like it, go back to ranked once you feel confident again.

And keep your chin up. Always keep your chin up.

Thanks for the supportive words, Wayne. :o
Now I did actually end up taking a break from this for a while, and I think it might help me have a fresher mindset from here on out.
I need to be thinking: I'm in a good position, and things will go as they must go, so forth as I perform at the best of my ability in every game that I do so decide to step into.

Off-topic:
This past Friday, I went out with some friends, and had a great evening/night out, and then followed it up with a family birthday today, Saturday, where I got to see a lot of my family whom I haven't seen in a long while, so that in itself is a nice way to get away from ranked for a short while, and forget about it, as I took the role of the caring, playful uncle~
End of off-topic

Now I am back, and my mind shall inform me tomorrow as to whether or not it's a good idea to play ranked. Thereby, there may be game updates tomorrow, but perhaps it will wait until Monday.
My key point is: FEAR NOT, MY DEAR SUPPORTERS. I AM BACK.
Or something along those lines.

Here we go! :D

A super strong game from me. I was the highlight in our team's laning phase, as Lee Sin did a good job, landing us 2 kills on my lane opponent, Shyvana. From there I could take over the lane pretty easily, and I was going to farm Shyv for a while longer, but looking at the score sheet, it didn't seem that that would be the case.
The team score was 7/5, me holding a 5/1 score. I'm fairly sure we all had 1 death each, or maybe Lee Sin had two, coming to think of what was said in the after-game chat about ganking and dying.

Anyhow, the latter stages of the game (Me having gotten my Trinity Force and Blade of the Ruined King at the 19 minute mark), Malzahar posed the main threat towards me, as he managed to lock me down on a few occasions, as I was opting to kill someone else from their team.
Once realizing the full extent of this, I took a different approach, and made sure that we could either all engage on Malzahar at the same time, or I would wait until he was forced to use his ultimate on someone else. With this approach, I still took a bunch of damage, but didn't die, but I also didn't do as much damage as otherwise, and there was quite a few kills in the latter stages, that I couldn't participate in, because my health had been lowered from the previous fighting (Enemies respawning, as we pushed in their bottom inhibitor, having already conquered the mid lane inhib.

Overall, I'm happy with how the game developed, and I am very grateful that our Xerath also managed to get into the game pretty well. He seemingly managed to kill Jinx at ~80% health with only hitting his three ult charges. That was pretty sweet.
He actually also did that on Malzahar at some point, securing us some mid towers at that time, since there was no Malz ult danger-alert up and running, in that case.

Here's to having a clear, happy mind, heading into games, and #believe'ing all the time long day. (Reference to something that should not be recognized, here)

My laning phase in this game set me up for not being able to provide much help for my team, but in the end, the combination of Viktor, Fiddlesticks and Amumu ults and otherwise AoE damage, we sealed the win through teamfighting. We also made sure not to group in a way that Malphite would be able to counter-engage.
My primary role was to either follow-up and do whatever, or to catch someone out of position with E-Q, but overall, I was pretty much carried in this game.

Lee Sin gave me a really hard time in top lane, one which was already fairly tough against Malphite who knew what he was doing. Post-6 I knew I was going to be in huge trouble if Lee should want to swing by, and so he did.
Hell, one time, after my tower was downed, Malphite was missing, I called it, and looked towards mid lane, for him to show up somewhere, and then he and Lee Sin come out of the brush right next to me and I die easily.
My brain wasn't working well in regards to figuring out what was going on. In other instances, Malphite looked for a fight, and I figured: Why not try? Naturally, Lee Sin was incoming, and it was always going to be an epic fail.

After losing lane, I was just trying to farm my way back. I had no kill-potential in me, and could only farm, so I farmed top, jungle and mid every once in a while, and I think we lost soem skirmishes because I wasn't there, but those were times when I had no items at all, and wouldn't be of much help. They did throw a remark about me just farming, when the enemy team took our outer mid turret, and I agree, at that time I should probably have moved, but nonetheless I replied that I was trying to get back into the game.
To be fair, I did get back into the game, and when we all fought together, there were not really any issues to point at.
I'm still kind of sad about my mind-blurps in top lane though.
Also, just pointing out: I was picking Jax into blindness - AKA Malphite was picked after I picked Jax. I could have gone for Renekton, but I am more comfortable with Jax, so yeah.

I really should, by now, react correctly to when my enemy laner, from being pretty passive and then starting to attack me, picking a fight, I should realize that a gank is coming, instead of practically just accepting death by taking up the fight like that. The one particular time I did this, I got Malphite to 30 % health, sure, but he still had his ultimate, which he in the end didn't even have to use, as Lee Sin provided plenty of damage.


OOOOOOO-well. It's a win, at least, and I feel I played justifiably post-laning, aside from trying to juke a Thresh hook which was never coming, in mid lane and then getting Lux binded, followed by aforementioned Thresh hook, and dying. >_>
But ehm, we don't talk about that..

An illustration of how I was mainly spending my time farming and stunning people in this game:
