As I felt like documenting my ranked games again I wanted to update my old thread but apparently the domain of my former favorite and now retired image uploading service is now infected and therefore it is not recommended to access the first pages of my old ranked thread. I had two options: to edit all those image links or to create a new thread. Naturally I went for the laziest of the two.

This season I got to Gold pretty fast and I now find myself at 75LP in Gold V. Practically I have already achieved my season goals but I thought I might as well see where I end up after some more games.

Due to an unlucky turn of events my go-to top laner got reworked and I'm not as familiar with the new Shen as I was with the old one. I'm still queuing up as Top / Support or fill but as we all know that means I've been playing support most of the time.

Roster so far:
Top: Lissandra, Shen?, occasional Tahm Kench or Malphite etc.
Jungle: Vi, Lee Sin, Poppy? (I don't play jungle actively at the moment)
Mid: Lissandra, Syndra? Katarina?, Talon?
ADC: pls no
Support: Blitzcrank, Thresh, Janna?

2016-04-18: Added Vi to jungle, moved Syndra down


I'll try to keep the roster up to date as I flesh out my pool a bit later down the line.

So yeah, I'll be posting some games. Please feel free to throw in feedback and whatnot, it is always appreciated.

my suggestions would be to drop syndra and lee sin, there's no reason to play syndra at all currently (other than you possibly finding it fun), gl

Lee's in there because that's the only champion which is still somewhat in the meta that I used to play in the jungle. Now that you mention it I could actually play Vi instead. I believe my ranked win rate on Lee is still pretty good though, hard as it may be to believe :^)

Syndra is a bit of a safe pick for me because I know I can always be relevant late game even if I **** up everything (just throw a stun out and press R). I may swap her with Talon but I honestly don't think my Talon is good enough for average play yet. I can at least use Lissandra instead.

Thanks for the feedback!


Now on to the game where I got a double around 6 minutes in:

Or: What happens when the enemy team picks Blitzcrank and you don't feel like playing Thresh.

Not my best game, Caitlyn had terrible game sense which almost cost us the win but luckily Nasus and Fizz made up for the **** ups of the rest of us. I hardly play Leona, which lead to some unwanted kills and some unexpected deaths, but overall it was okay. I had been locking on Udyr a lot and I guess you can see that in the damage charts, lol. (click the image) Spoiler: I did more damage to champions than he did.

I tried to gank some lanes mid game and that didn't work out very well, Udyr was quick to the rescue every time and Ezreal is pretty hard to catch anyway. There wasn't much else to do though, Cait was overextending bot so I think I still made the right decision. Just a pretty bad execution.

Regardless of how mediocre I thought the game went, Rito decided to give me an S- for it. And it's a win so I guess I'll take it. Promo hype.

EDIT: No I didn't play Ali because I simply don't like playing him atm. Also I'm a horrible Ali but I won't admit it.

I had a great early game but ****ed up late, got caught in their CC chain and rest is history.

Bot lane was pretty easy, Jhin was bad at dodging and Morgana didn't shield properly so we got some effective grabs off. Lucian went on to become a pretty strong carry and I roamed around grabbing stuff.

Then they decided to chase a Morgana instead of killing a free Jhin and so on and so forth. I also started making ****ty calls at some point, slightly tilted, and after we didn't finish because people backed while I was pretty sure we could finish (they had like ~15s death timer minimum and we were with Lucian, me, Gnar and J4 if IIRC) the enemy team got a free baron. We decided to push bot lane a bit as they were scattered but I got caught in a Jhin snare on our way out and they lost while defending 4v5 later on.

Short story is that I ****ed up some crucial things like some necessary vision control and some wonky actions. Overall pretty dissatisfied because we were so ahead we should have been able to win easily. So I gotta work on keeping my cool when I'm ahead.

tldr ripperinis

EDIT: I also have no idea why I bought Frozen Heart against this comp, to add to the stupid mistakes.

I knew I was going to play with Jhin so I decided not to play Blitzcrank. I don't play Morgana and I didn't know we'd have a tanky jungler to play Janna with so I went for Thresh instead.

Laning phase was rough, they simply outdid us on all fronts except for the early push. Black Shield is such an annoying ability. Irelia was also having trouble against Cho'Gath but luckily Gragas and LeBlanc had a great time and we managed to keep on winning. We made some really funky plays so that was fun. Irelia also managed to become really useful late game.

I made a mistake once where I wanted to give a kill to Jhin but he was just out of range and then Ezreal got away. Should've just killed him myself. I need to work on Jhin in general because I have no idea what his range is etc.

I've been buying eye of the equinox on my tanky supports since I read somewhere over here that it's good and so far it's been quite nice. I miss the face of the mountain active sometimes but it really speeds up the rest of my build so it's k. Having the passive stacks early really helps out in lane too, if we're still laning at that point.

Missed a lot of hooks this game, I need to focus on getting those Death Sentences right again.

You need a backup for when she's banned though.

Not sure if this is a reference to the banned Vi meme, but if not: I'll probably play Lee or maybe just dodge. Right now I queue Support instead of Fill by the way, so I won't be jungling anytime soon.

Of course it was. Who the hell would ban Vi other than you? :^)

Haha, fair enough ^^

Good thing Riot made it impossible for first pick to accidentally ban these days, so I'm all good.

You don't even need a roster for more than 2 roles anymore since you can just queue as 2 roles
Thanks to FatelBlade, JEFFY40HANDS, Nyoike, TheNamelessBard, GrandmasterD, aviseras and koksei for the awesome signatures
